The best receipt for going through

Great excitement prevails in At
lanta on account cf the finding, at
12 o'clock, of the partially dissected
body of a female in the old soap fac
tory building on Houston street, in
the neighborhood of the Medical Col
logo. Tho corpse was found by a
colored boy, and the negroes arc flock
iog to tho place in scores.
We learn from our farmers that
they have pretty generally hired suf
ficient labor for the present year's
opcralionc at reasonable rotes, and
that the colored people arc disposed
to go lo work at once preparing for
the next crop. This is encouraging
in the face of so much moving and
breaking up of homes.

Ox salesday Peter Ashbj*, colored,
stole a horse from John C. Brown,
another colored man, and was caught
with the animal in his possession.
Quite a number of colored persons
collected on the spot, and, under tho
influence of excitement, had deter

prit and swing him lo the first con
venient tree. Mr. S. E. Bozard hap

St. Matthews1 Concert.?On Tues
day evening last, by special invita
tion, vvc started in company with Dr.
Waiter Wolfe and Mr. John Danlzlbr
on a visit to Middle St. Matthews
with a view of attending the concert
to be given at tho St. Matthews'
Academy on the last day of the old
year. Spending the night mo3t pleas
antly at the Doctor's home, we start
ed early next morning for tho con
cert. Already quite a crowd had as
sembled and active preparations were
being made for the day's enjoyment.
That excellent lady, Mrs. Mol lie A.
Rush, who seemed to be the leading
spirit of the movement, and others
of equal aeal in the cause, perfected
their arrangements nnd opened the
doors at 12 o'clock noon. The room
was soon tilled to its utmost capacity
by the anxious crowd and the exer
cises commenced with the popularsong
of "Old Black doe," sung by Mr. J.
Dantzler and Miss Augusta Ilolman;
Miss Lizzie Chapman accompanying
on the piano. Tue "Gipsey Coun
tess" was rentiereil in a most olfec
trve manner by Mr. W. L. Glaze and
Miss Annie Rast. "Shew-Fly" was
artistically performed by Messrs. T.
McMichaol and ,J. Ilolman on the
violin ; so also were "Evening Star
Waltz," "Sharum" "Nelly Gray"
and "Dixie" by the same performers.
"Grand Father's Clock" by Mr. J.
Danlzler and Miss Augusta Ilolman
was full of the sweet planlivcncss so
so characteristic ol that ballad.
"Come, Where My Love L?ica
Dreaming" was charmingly sung by
Miss Annie Rust and Miss Lizzie
Chapman. Rut the song of the occa
sion was "Dearest May" by Mr. and
Mrs. Dave Rush, who literally
brought down the house in their inim
itable style. The tableaux scenes by
by Miss Sallic Wolfe ami Miss An
nie Rast constituted quite a charming I
feature of the Concert; and old j
Black Joe, in the person of Mr. Jim
tnic Huiglcr, carried one back to the
days of lite old log cabin in the lane.
After spending two hours in the en
joyment of these pleasant and profit
able exercises, the crowd were invit
ed down to partake of a most excel
lent dinner, not without depositing,
however, a ''quarter" at the door.
Of course we entered into this ar
rangement with a vim and called for
our share of the good things which
were so bountifully supplied as to
cause some misgivings as to our abil
ity for the task. Looking around
and seeing others in a like condition,
we addressed ourself to the huge pile
which grew astonishingly less the
longer wc sat.
The inevitable ballot box was
brought into requisition and Miss
Annie Ilolman was selected as the
most popular young lady and Mis.
Mollio Rush, the most popular marri
ed lady. MUees Mamie Tillcy and
Simmic Bait* did good serv'ec at the
fruit and lemonade stands which
made quite a contribution to the gen
eral fund. Indeed all connected with
the enterprise devoted themselves to
success of the occasion and the result,
which was Silo net profit, proves
how well each performed his part.
The Concert was given in aid of the
Methodist parsonage and it was in
deed gratifying to sec how well the
different denominations worked to
gether in this laudable undertaking.
This had no 1 ttlc to do wita the
gratifying success accomplished.

he accomplish so many wonders in

in life as a clerk for his brother-iu

and unpretentious career, no one
dreamed in those days that he would
before 1S80 become one of the most
dashing and thorough-going mer
chants of the times. Yet who doubts
the fact now ! Who is gifted with
audacity enough to induce him to
say that Kortjohn's stoic is not one
of the indispensable institutions of
