Upon thc suggestion of Col. J. N.
Lipscomb, Col. A. 1*. Bu'1er, thc com

Fight hundred and sixty emigrants

age cost often dollars per man.
Commissioner Huiler further spoke
of the large consumption of commer
cial fertilizers by the farmers through
out thc Slate, which had become of
fertilizers hail more to do with the
success or failure of thc crop than am
odier factor. So much now depends
upon (he usc of high grade fertilizers
that thu reports ol thc department
were coining moro and more in de
mand, and Hie farmers are realizing
more and more their usefulness and
importance. Ile also spoke (d' the tish
commission and what had been accom

we have quoted, with suitable bead- |

which it teaches. If one may judge (
from the interest which Ha; Statement

alfords as rare an item for a* vigilant
prc>s as thc man who bas never trav
eled In rail, nor tasted a drep of ardent t

other such tuen, besides the (?eory;ia
jurist, but people do not hear of them. ,
flioy hide in the shadow of content- i
meut, and live at home-because thoy
have homes to live at. One may go on t
making debts and paying them, after a j
lime, tor years together, and nobody
be aware of the fact besides himself
and the anxious parties of thc (Uber i
part. Hut let him once fail. L?t the j
financial sun go down on thc third day '

Ii ia probably a rare thing to find a

many it is uni likely that we should '?
have beard of the gentleman over in
i Goorgia so promptly ami so persistent* <
ly. Il mar bc that von owe only a
few thousands, or a few hundreds, or ?
a few units of dollars, and that your
, assets are far in access of your habib- ;
tics. If so, blessed are yon; but your |
, posilion is not on the bench alongside i
? of our Georgia exemplar. Your
proper place is on thc anxious seal ;
and doubtless you occupy 'A much of
your lime, in tho solitude of your office
or your library. If thc balance is
against you, of course, though ever so
little, and liar surplus assets arc not in 1
, sight, your case is the common one. 1
i You are in debt. If you own a dollar, 1
and owe a dollar and a din e only, you
belong to the great majority. You I
are ten cents behind, and the odds are !
that you will find it hard work to ?
caleb up. That dime is the measure
(d' most of your present troubles, li '
is bigger in your eyes than the dollar, (
and well nigh blots OU tribe light (d' tho j

Thc safest way is (he best way. You

j in every way for denying yourself

i what you have not yet earned. The

, must bc paid for "a littlo later." If ,
you are in debt, or have been in debt,
' you do not need lo be told what it ,
means. If von have never been in
debi, and arc not now in debt, do not
r seek lo learn by experience what it
means. The difference, in fewest
words, is the difference between bav .
ing votir mo?t h under water and hav
[ ing it out of water.
When thc tide is nt your chin-when I
yon are living opto your income-it is 1
! bud enough. Another inch means
drowning, and another dollar ot debt 1
means that final incl). Il is of not
much practical moment whether tia; I

Capt. Clark, of Ibo American sin j? i
Frank A'. Tfiayer, ha? arrived at |
I'M mouth on the ('ape Steamer, by '
which bc was picked up at sea. He
' relates that the Thayer was bound for
1 England with a mixed crew, hiollld- '
mg two Manilla seamen. These two 1
men stole upon deck ono night and J
armed with knives lashed to poles '
al tacked two officers, killing them in- '
stantlv. Three sailors, the only ones
on deck, wen; quickly dispatched. >
Capt. Clark, bearing the shrieks of the I
crow, rushed on deck in bis night '
shirt. The .Manillaos .-.hobed him ter- I
ribly and he hardy escaped with his -
life. After a desperate struggle lie i
broke away from his assailants and,
rushing to his cabin, locked himself j
in. The Manillaus battened down I he j
hatches and kept i he captain and crew i
below deck ono day and nighf. The t
captain finally fired through thc sky- I
light at one of tho mutineers mid (
wounded him in tho thigh. The man
rushed to the side of tho vessel and j
leaped overboard. Tho other muli- |
near thou went below, fired the cargo, j
and returning to thc deck jumped into \

crew forced their way on deck, low- ?
