Advice which Should be Follow
ed. "We notice that many of the South
ern papers are advising the people of
the late rebellious states ot abstain from
national politics, take no interest in the
affairs of the Federal Government, and
to devote themselves to agriculture and
to the improvements which are so much
needed in their section. Although tl
aavi is given lor a sinister purpose,
we trust the people or the south will
not fail to act upon it. We assure
them it will be beneficial both to them
selves and to the people of the North.
We would prefer, of course, that they
would comply with the terms of resto
ration submitted by Congress, and take
a fair share of interest in the conduct of
the General Government. But if they
are determined to indulge in a sullen
disposition because they cannot have
things their own way, it is better that
they should take out their revenge in
cultivating the soil and pursuing other
useful and profitable avocations. They
have already had a surfeit of politics.
Previous to the rebelion the majority
of the Southern people did little else
beside discuss politics and hold all the
offices under fhe General Government.
They did this to the neglect of every
thing else. Their leaders and teachers
are late gi-ing them good advice;
but if they follow it they will find a
marked change in their section in a few
years. With as good natural advan
tages, and in some respect even better,
the South is at least a half a century be
hind the Xorth. If her people give up
pontics and betake themselves to the
useful employments which have made
the North what it is, they may indulge
the hope that at no distant day they
will make up what they have lost in the
past time. Wash. Chronicle.

' Mr. Editor r Will you ; 'permit me
through the colunis of your paperto return
ray thanks to those brave men in -the 49th
Senatorial District - who cast their votes in
favor of the Constitutional amendment, show
ing their willingness to return to ; the Gov
ernment of their fathers from whence they
have been dragged and driven by traitors,
upon the terms therein offered. I know,
fellow-citizens, we are now in the minority,
which is partly owing to the want of time on
my part to canvass the District, and partly
owing to misrepresentations and domestic
falsehoods of our opposers, and for the want
of courage on the part of some Union men.
But let it go. I am happy to know that
there are in this Senatorial District 1,293
fearless Union men who will not bow to the
secession god, and whose lips will never kiss
But let us be cool and calm, for the days
of rebel rule' are numbered. Its reign will
soon be over. I have done, in part, what I
came into the field to do, and that was to
show the friends of the Amendment in this
Senatorial District, and keep them from be
ing blinded by its opposers. I have done it,
and the Government now knows how we
stand. And if our party is small here, the
Northern elections have made up all our los
ses ; and though we are defeated now, yet
we fall to rise again ; the principle for which
we contended is right and will prevail ; the
day of our deliverance will come, and we
will yet be freed from treasons' reign and
traitor's rule. God will bring it in his own
good time. Some of us may not be here to
see it. The hands which have defeated us
may slay some ,of us, but let it come ; the
blood of the martyrs was the seed of the
church ; the blood of pure Union men in this
State, shed by the hands of their enemies,
will sow Unionism so thick that treason
would soon wither and die, and traitors
would be punished indeed.
We hear it hinted that Union men had
better leave and go to a climethat would be
more congenial to their politics. It has ljeen
further charged on us that we would bring
evil on the country ; and our oppressors may
bring it, or our blood may bring it, as did
the blood of a righteous Abel on the head of
a murderous brother.
And now, fellow-citizens, please receive
unfeigned thanks for the liberal support you
have given to one who feels his inability ,and
knows his unworthiness for the trust you
were willing to confide in him, while I am
sure that the cause which has been twice
made sacred to us, first by the blood of our
ancestors, lastly by the blood of our kindred,
shall never be insulted again by its enemies,
and I remain a silent spectator of the shame
I am, as ever, your oledient servant,

non. M. H. Cruikshank, Commissioner of
the Destitue, is issuing a circular to the pro

which he notifies them of the apportionment
of supplies made to the counties under the
recent arrangement, through Gen. Swayne.
County agents, who an- to be selected by
court or county commissioners, are to bejun

the probate judges, and will in future make
reports under oath.
The supply of food is limited, and is to be
confined to the indigent alone, without dis

The Government will place these supplies
at convenient depots, he most accessible
points being selected ; and the counties will
pay any further expense of transportation at"

Cotton Crop of Georgia.
A correspondent of the Augusta Chronicle
and Sentinel, writing from Macon, says of
me cotton crop oi ueorgia : " 1 have con
versed with gentlemen from every section of
tne tate in relation to the probable extent
of the present cotton crop, and I find that the
universal report is, that there cannot be more
than one-third of the usual crop made this
year. There are in this this city some gen
tlemen from every county in the State where
cotton is grown to any extent, and all con
cur in the statement that I have just made
as to the extent of the crop. The lateness of
the fall has not been in the least degree ben
eficial to the crop, as the continued rains of
the month of October induced such a rapid
growth of the plant that the late fruit has
not been matured. A general frost of a month
ago would not have shortened the crop in
any perceptible degree."
Cotton Crop in Alabama.
The Selma Messenger of the 7th thus dis
courages us about the cotton crop :
The effect of the frost on the cotton ctod.
we are reliably informed, has cut short the
crop fully one fifth, which must be deducted
from the lowest estimates made some two
weeks since. We believe this will sddIv to
all the cotton region north of this. The pick
ing season has been and continues to be re
markably good, which will enable planters
to get in their crops early. We look for re
ceipts to fall off in December and high pri
ces to rule.

Value of Accuracy. It is the re
sult of "every day'8 experience that
steady attention to matters of detail
lies at the root of human progress, and
that dilligence, above all, is the mother
of good luck. Accuracy is also of much
importance, and an f invariable mark of
good training in a man accuracy in
observation, accuracy in speech, accura
cy in the transaction of affairs. "What
is done in business must be well done ;
for it is better to accomplish perfectly
a small amount of work than to half-do
ten times as much. A wise man used
o say, " Stay a little, we may make an
end the sooner." Too little attention,
however, is paid to this highly impor
tant quality of accuracy. As a man
eminent in practical science lately ob
served, " It is astonishing how few peo
ple I have met in the course of my ex
perience who can define a fact accurate
ly." Yet, in business affairs, it is the
manner even in which small matters are
transacted has that often decided men for
or against you. With virtue, capacity
and good conduct iu some respects, the
person who is habitually inaccurate in
other respects cannot be trusted ; his
work has to be done over again ; and
he thus causes endless annoyance, vex
ation and troubles.
REASON WHY THE
Made at WALT1IAM, MASSACHUSETTS,
IS TEE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is
composed of SOLID PLATES. Nor jar can in
terfere with the harmony of its working and no
sudden shock can damage its machinery. Every
piece is made and finished by machinery (itself
famous for its novelty, as well as for its effective
ness) and is, therefore properly made. The watch
is what all mechanism should be ACCURATE,
SIMPLE, STRONG AND ECONOMICAL. Ex
cept some high grades, too costly for general use,
foreign watches are chiefly made by women and
boys. Such watches are composed of several
hundred pieces, screwed and riveted together,
and require constant repairs to keep them in any
kind of order. All persons who have carried
" ancres" ' lepines" and " English Patent Le
vers," are perfectly well aware of the truth of
At the beginning of our enterprise more than
ten years ago, it was our first object to make a
thoroughly good low priced watch for the mill
ion, to take the place os these foreign imposi
tions ; the refuse of foreign factories, wliich were
entirely unsaleable at home and perfectly worth
. low well we have accompolished this, may be
understood from the fact that so many years of
public tiial, we now make MORE THAN HALF
OF ALL THE WATCHES SOLD IN THE
UNITED STATES, and that no others have ever
given such universal satisfaction. While this de
partment of our business is continued with in
creased facilities for perfect work, we are at pre
sent engaged in the manufacture of watches of
the verv HIGHEST GRADE KNOWN TO
CHRONOMETRY, unequaled by anything hither
to made by ourselves, and unsurpassed by any
thing made in the world. For this purpose we
have the amplest facilities. We have erected an
addition to our main building expressly for this
branch of our business, and have filled it with the
best workmen in our service. New machines
and appliances have been constructed which per
form their work with consummate delicacy and
exactness. The choicest and most approved ma
terials only are used, and we challenge compari
son between this grad.J of our work and the finest
imported chronometers. We do not pretend to
sell our watches for less money than foreign
watches, but we do assert without fear of contra-
diceion that for the same money our product is
Incomparably superior. All our watches, of what
ever grade, are fully warranted, and this warran
tee is good at all times against us or our agents
in all parts of the world.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to bny
only of responsible dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
