For good and sutliacientt reasons,
which haive already beeni given, the
conivenition of' Northern settfors int t';c
SothI, which was expected to be held
ini I his (citl' on the 4ith of' July, will not
bie Ihadi. Insitead of' Ihis we'see by an
anniounicemientt in the Atlanta 'oun
s//tv/lion that a convention of'this class
of' our' follow citizens will be held in
Atlantta durling thte week of' the Geor
gial Staute Fair, to lbe hek1( in that cityT
next fall , andt~ to this coniventioni each
Southlerni Stat~e will be iinvited to send

.1t is hoped that this1 conventioni will

that inftor'mation comIng fromn such
sostre'es willl have great weight in
dir'ectiig the cour'se of emigration
fr'om' the Northern States. From this
time on to the close of' the Presidentlial
ctrnpalin the enttire North will lie

the only eff'ectutal way to head thtem
seems to be in stateents fr'omn North
