the right men In the right places.
A short time since a resolution pasted

Is tho very man for that position.

Wo liavo heard a number of citizens
express a desire to make 'the excursfdn
to Mobile with tho editorial fraUmltyon

perhaps, that ail cannot go who have
tho time and inclination to do so; but as
an uio provision made has been with the
view of accommodating tho editorial fra
ternlty only, each member being limited
to a single female, it might bo considered
as an Intrusion for others to add them
selves to the crowd.
Arrangements for refreshment, hotel

Some depraved aud heartless person
(to whom certain circumstances point
with conslderublo certainty) has, for .the
second time, deposited a newly born
babe on tho door step of one of our most
upright aud respectable citizens. Tho
mlserablo creature guilty of this unnat
ural conduct may think that hn excites
' ridicule against tho citizen In question;
but In this ho was never moro mistaken
in his life. Tho only feeling excited Is
that of supremo contempt for the being
capablo of such a heartless and unfeeling
abandonment of his own off-spring.
Wo aro almost persuaded that we
know tho guilty party. A link or two in
the chain of circumstances will mako
the proof complete, when wo shall not
hesltato to make tho nanio public.

"Hedge" Miller, of tho Arm of Miller

will not fail to commaud the highest
commondutious of thoso who know
what u seosonablo aud fashionable arti

tho Easterumarkots who Is not an ex

supply of last year's goods and fashlous,
fully impressed with tho idea that ho Is

not Hedge Miller. Everything ho has

a single garment, made to order, will find
