She is to have an entire new bottom, and her cabin is to be enlarged and generally im proved, with a view of affording increased first class accommodations for the traveling public. The cabin and upper works will be en tirely of white pine, which is lighter than yellow pine, and which will, it is thought, lessen her draft considerably and render her more suitable for this river. Anew engine and boilers will be put .in, and she will be modeled as nearly as possible after the pattern of the late steamer W. T. Wheless. These repairs and changes it is thought will be completed in about two months, when she will again be placed on the route between this city and Augusta. We understand the cost of these improve ments will approximate SIO,OOO, but the Carrie will then be a model boat and will increase her popularity with travelers and shippers. “The Image of Her Mother.” Among the stories of the Mousing News series none attracted more attention, or was read with greater interest than the beauti ful and intensely interesting novel entitled, “The Image of Her Mother,” written by Mrs. Mary Augusta Wade, one of Savannah’s most talented and accomplished daughters. It has just been issued in library form, and is now on sale at the news depots. The story, in point of merit, is far above the average of serials, and unmistakably 6tamps the authoress as the possessor of literary ability, entitling her to rank with the distinguished women of the South who have achieved reputation and fortune in the school of writers. The purity of language the well constructed plot, the moral, refined tone, and the natural,easy style which char acterize “The Image of Her Mother” will commend this interesting novel to every lover of fiction, and we doubt not, in its present convenient form, it will have the large sale its merits deserve. Important Meeting of City and County Authorities. We learn that a meeting will shortly be called by the Mayor of the members of the City Council, Drainage Commissioners, County Commissioners,Board of Education, and members of the Legislature, for the purpose of consultation in regard to various matters affecting the interests of this city and county. There are a large number of local bills to be pre sented at the next session of the General Assembly, and some concert of action is necessary. The meeting will be a very important one, and will be antici pated with interest. As the Legislature meets on Wednesday, the 6th of July, it is probable this conference will take place the early part of next week. Attempt at Sell-Destruction. We learn that yesterday morning a book keeper on the Bay, who lives a short distance from the city, took a heavy dose of mor phlne at his residence, presumably with the Intention of making a tour Into “that conn try from whose bourne no traveler ever returns.” His condition was discovered by some of the inmates, and Dr. Dupont re ceived summons at 1 o’clock In the afternoon to attend him. At 3 o’clock Dr. T. B. Chis holm, who had also been sent for, went out from the city to render what attention was possible, but up to a late hour last night had not returned, and it was impossible to ascer tain the result. It is stated that on one of the cuffs of his shirt was found written the quantity of the drug he had swallowed and at what time. Temperance tu the South. jjrs. Frances Willard, of the Na’iona' Temperance Association, writes to the or gan of the association in enthusiastic praise of her reception at all points in the South, and of the practical public response to her appeals tor local workers and the organiza tion of local unions among the women; also of favors extended to her as the represents tive of temperance by pulpit, press, railway and many private citizens. She says no money is asked for; no collections are taken; but the people spontaneously anticipated all expenses of meetings, travel and enter tainment. A Base Ball Game at the Picnic To-Day. Among the attractions at.the picnic of the St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic T. A. B Society at tbe Schuetzen Park to day will be a game of base ball. The game will be commenced about half-past 3 o’clock in the afternoon, and the society have offered as a prize a silver mounted bat and ball to the winner. This should induce a large number of the lovers of the “national game” to attend, as the ciubs entered are well np in the business and some good playing is expected. A Complete Ontfit for a Maw Mill, A complete outfit for a first class saw mill was discharged yesterday morning from the steamship George Appold, which arrived here from Baltimore on Sunday even.ng. The machinery and everything is complete, and weighs forty-six thousand pounds. It is consigned to M. Albertson, at Waycross, and will be shipped to-day by the Savannah, Florida and Western Rail way. __ Robber Stamp?. Mr. James L. Smith, 25 and 27 Dravton street, is prepared to furnish rubber stamps, stencil plates, steel aiemps, baggage checks, door plates, etc., In all designs and at very reasonable prices. Parties in need of any thing In this line would do well to call and see him, and inspect the numerous beauti ful specimens of his manufacture, from which a selection may be made. The Flrat Watermelon* of the Sea son. Chas. H. Dorsett, Esq., yesterday re ceived a conrigument of about twenty five watermelons from Hawthorn, Florida. They are what is known as the Rattle snake melon, and were of good size and quality, and were purchased by Paolo rano, the fruit dealer on Broughton street. Cotton Blossom. We were shown yesterday by a Bay street merchant a fine cotton blossom, the first of the new crop this season received here. It waa from the farm of M. A. Burke, on the Ogeecbee. GEORGIA HUSSARS. Presentation of a Sword to Capf. Gordon. The Georgia Hussars met at their Hall last evening in citizens’ dress, about 8 o’clock, and proceeded to the residence of their worthy commander, Capt. W. W. Gordon. The object of this visit was to present to Cspt. Gordon the handsome sword voted him as the most popular mili tary officer in the city at the re cent Masonic Baziar and Fair. The carps were invited in, and after entering the spacious parlors, Private A. R. Lawton, Jr., in a very handsome and felicitous speech, presented the sword, his remarks being peculiarly appropriate and well timed. Captain Gordon, in accepting the hand some testimonial awarded him under such circumstances, responded In a very feeling manner. After a few minutes’ conversation the corps were invited to an adjoining apart ment, nd sparkling champagne and fra grant Havanas were introduced. The ut most conviviality and good fellowship pre vailed,and the occasion was rendered inter esting and pleasant by eloquent remarks from Private P. W. Meldrim, ex-Captain R. H. Anderson, Captain David Waldhauer, Henry Brigham, Esq., and others, and ’ the tuneful vocalists of the corps also lent their voices in appropriate songs. The occasion was ex tremely pleasant, and its recollections will be treasured among the happiest of the man? enjoyable events in the history of the gallant corps. On the scabbard of the sword, which is a very elegant weapon, is the following in scription: Presented to . CAPT. W. W. GORDON by the Georgia Hussars, May 13,1381.

Meeting of tbe Chatham County Board-Election of Teachers— Ait Address from State School Com* mlssloner Orr. The regular annual meeting of the Board of Public Education for Chatham county was held at the Chatham Academy last eve ning, Captain George A. Mercer, Vice President, In the chair, Superintendent W. H. Baker, Secretary, at his post. After the transaction of routine business, the election for teachers for the next scholastic year took place, and resulted in the re-election of the entire present corps. After tbe business of the meeting bad been disposed of, Capt. Mercer introduced Hon. Gustavus J. Orr, B:ate School Com missioner, wbo was present, and who ad dressed the Board at some length. lie stated that during the past four years he had visited 170 towns In the State, and had made addresses at each in tbe in terest of public education. His general re ception was especially encouraging within the past few months, and he found that people were awakening to the importance of this subject. His special mission now was to call tbe attention of the grand ju ries and tbe Boards of Education to the pending bills before the Legislature in the interests of the State Edu cational Fund, and to ask their co-operation and endorsement of the same, with the view of influencing the Representatives and Senators of th? various counties to secure their passage at the ensuing session of the General Assembly. Owing to the admira ble local laws in reference to education, Chatham was not as personally interested in these schemes possibly as some other coun ties, but their passage could do her some good, no harm, and would be of benefit to the State generally. He had on Saturday addressed a meeting of the Board of Edu cation of Richmond county at Augusta and a number of prominent citizens, and was greatly encouraged by the results. He had found the members of the Legis lature from that county always in favor of progress in education. The difficulty with members from the city was that they had good systems at home, and did not feel the necessity of doing much for the cause of education. He recollected two of the former members—Mr. Davidson and Major Cum rning, of the Richmond county Board of Ed ucation—who had been especially active in the cause. He knew that at least one of the present members Judge Twiggs was strongly enlisted, and he presumed the oth ers were also. What they wanted was a per fect system of schools in the State. He had been through different parts of the State. He went first to Oglethorpe, and be lieved he had made a favorable impres sion there. He went next to Stewart county and made a speech there. He went next to Jefferson and got an indorsement from the grand jury. He also got a pre sentment in Burke in favor of all the meas ures proposed. And so in the county of L T pson. It Terrell he did not succeed in getting before the jury, but he went before the people, and he thought with favorable results. He determined to go to the cities and ask the cooperation of the Boards. He addressed the Board in Columbus. As he came down towards Augusta he ad dressed the people of Columbia county at Harlem. He was satisfied that one hundred members of the Legislature were in favor cf increasing the school fund. The indications were very favorable all over the State. The constitu tion of 1877 says there shall be a good system of common schools in the State. The language is imperative. The great drawback is lack of funds. What can be done with 66 cents a head ? Some people—and ignorant pec pie they must be— said they had tried the puolic school system and it had been a failure. Tried i’! Tried it on 66 cents a head! They had tried to starve it. The only trouble was that of money. The present appropriation is 88 cents a head. We have a good system as to the machinery. What we need Is money. That is what he was pleading for now. He was pleading in behalf of the rising genera tion. There were measures now before the Legislature which, if adopted, would increase the school fund to ore million of dollars. It was a wise system of measures. The first was intro duced by Dr. Perkins, of Burke. It pro poses to levy a tax of oae-tenth of one per cent, upon property, the monev to be left in the county in which it is raised. When he went ovei the State discussiug ibis subject of taxation, he found a great deal of oppo sition. He had long been convi ced that it was equitable to tax property for he educa tion ot the children. Of the v rs in the State of Georgia to day, forty p r cent, of them are illiterate. Forty per cent, of them go up to the ballot box and deposit their ballots without kuowing what was on them. Did they believe that our in stitutions were safe with such a state of things? Jefferson and all the fathers of the Republic had taught differently. There were certain things that could not be measured by money. Ignorance was a fertile soil for Communism, for all sorts of isms. Every man who owned property was Interested in the rights of property just ac cording to the amouot of properry he owned. He had lived with the people of Georgia from the cradle up. We were a con servative, a slow moving people, perhaps too conservative. Conservatism was a good thing in its proper place. Wherever educa tion was fostered the value of property in creased. What he observed in isolated com munities would be the case in tbe whole State if the cause of educa ion was fostered. Suppose the Legislature immortalized itself by adopting a measure increasing our school fund to #1,000,000, what would be the re sult? Immigration would largely Increase. Immigrants go where there are free schools. Georgia can support ten times her popula tion, and do it better than now. He be lieved that if the Legislature would make the school fund $1,000,000 the population of the State w’ould be doubled, the re sources of the State would be more than doubled, our taxes would be les sened. He heard Mr. Wadley 6ay once that if the people along the railroads would give two thirds of their lands to actual bona fide settlers, the remaining third would be worth more than all was before. It was the interests of the property holders to make the very best citizens of the colored people. They are citizens. They are here to stay. The best thing that can be done is to go for ward and do the best we can under the cir cumstances—make a good school system at once. The constitution says It shall be done, and he, for one, meant to stand by it. A people should always stand by what i6 law. Mr. Perkins’ bill, If it passes, will raise for Chatham county $17,672 One-half the rental of the State Road goes into the school fund. That is $150,000. If you raise a tax of 1 per cent. It aggregates $238,000. Chatham gets over $15,000 of that. If pro portioned to school population it would be $5,000. The wire grass counties are rich in children but poor in material resources. Iu some of tbe mountain counties tbe taxes do not pay the expenses of their members of the Legislature. Yet they have a great many children. This was a somewhat selfish view, but this element should enter into the discussion. Mr. Rice, one of the members of Fulton county, had offered a bill providing for the appropriation of the other half of the rental of the State Road to the school f'-nd. Chat ham would get from that $3,777. Mr. Mitchell, of Gwinnett county, had Intro duced a bill looking to the more efficient collection of the poll tax. From the last re port of the Comptroller General it would be seen that that year we failed to collect $50,000 of the poll tax. The poll tax in Chatham, it appeared, was a third less than It should be. Mr. Mitchell’s bill provides that the poll tax shall be a lien upon a man’s property and upon his wages. It had been suggested that a provision be put in to notify em ployers, and require them to hold back the poll tax of their employes. He said it to the credit of Burke, that it paid up its poll tax very closely. Mr. Northern, of Han cock, had introduced another bill in refer ence to the liquor tax. Last year $30,000 were added to the school fund from that source, and this year it would be $60,000. The United States officials collected $116,- 000 from liquor dealers in Georgia. There is a big leak somewhere, if these facts are true, or the tax is not properly collected. He thought it probable the latter was the case. Mr. Northern proposed to double the tax and to increase the effi ciency of the collection law. He proposed to compel each liquor dealer to register his name with the Ordinary. It seemed to him that if the Legislature permitted the traffic to go on, 6ome money should be gotten out of it to educate the children. The dealer didn’t pay for it, but the consumer. Chat ham county, from these sources,, would get SI,BBB. Mr. Moore, of Pierce county, had introduced a bill taxing dogs. He did not know what its provisions were, but he intended to aid him all in his power. Ohio collects $200,000 from the dog tax. They use it there to pay tbe owners of sheep whose sheep are killed by curs. He talked to a colored audience in Elberton iu refer ence to the whisky tax and the dog tax. He asked all in favor of a dog tax tc hold up their hands. All but one did so, and he remarked that there was one man who love 4 his dogs better than he did his chil dren, The colored people are very solicit ous about education, and he gave them credit for it. They were willing to pay their poll tax and a tax on dogs. The tax on dogs in the State would amount to SIOO,OOO. If a man doesn’t want to pay the tax, get rid pf the dog. The tax is entirely volun tary. He didn’t blame anybody for loving a deg, hut they should love their childreu better. It was proposed to give aii special taxes to the cause of education. This would amount to $60,000. It was also proposed to eve the fees from the inspection of fertil ers. This would amount to SgO,POO. Chatham county would get from all these sources $28,876, making the total from the State fund $36,149. Nearly one-half of the tax that was proposed to be raised was in the nature of a personal tap, not a tax on property—viz: poll tax, a tax on liquor and a tax on dogs. Dr. Orr’s remarks were listened to with parked attention. He gave a thorough re view of the educational question, but the above hapty synopsis will enable the reader to appreciate his argument. He leaves this morning for Americus, where he will make an address to the people of that section. He will then visit other points throughout the State, and present the educational question clearly and forcibly he'ore the Board of Education, the grand juries and the people generally. At the close of his remaks last night, a desultory discussion was entered into, and various questions propounded by different members as to the effect of the passage of these laws upon counties where the system was already satisfactory, and to every ques tion prompt replies were given by Com missioner Orr. The statement was made by one of the members that there would be a general meeting of the authorities shortiy to con sider these matters, at which tbe representa tives to the L gislature would be present, * and action on the. suggestion of the Com missioners might then be taken. Mr. Wm. Hunter offered a resolution re turning the thanks of the Board to Hon. G. J. Orr, State School Commissioner of Geor gia, for his very able and instructive ad dress in regard to public education, which was unanimously adopted, and the meeting then adjourned. THE STATE CONVENTION OF V. M. C. A. Second Day’s Proceedings—Election of Officers. The Committee on Organization in the Convention of the Young Men’s Christian Association, in session at Atlanta, on Satur day reported the names of the following officers : Walter R. BrowD, of Atlanta, President. J. W. Wallace, of Augusta, Vice Presi dent. Dr J. P S. Houstoun, of Savannah, Sec ond Vice President. S. B. Scott, of Athens, Third Vice Presi dent. L B. Davis, of Savannah, Secretary. Walter S. Lewis, of Atlanta, Assistant Secretary. R R. Legg, of Marietta, Treasurer. Mr. Brown offered to decline the honor tendered him, but Dr. Munhall, of Indiana, stated that it was not in order for any mem ber to decline an office to which the asso ciation called him. After a few remarks the officers nominated were unanimously elected. Mr. Brown was escorted to the chair and the retiring President said that he left the office feeling regrets that he had not filled it more worthily. He expressed the hope that the incoming officers would improve their opportunities better, and that tbe as sociation would have a year of unbroken prosperity. Mr. Brown, in a few appropriate remarks, thanked the association for the honor it had conferred on him, and expressed bis determination to do all in his power to ad vance its cause. Reports of associations were asked for. Mr. Lewis made an excellent showing for the work in Atlanta, giving the details of the past year’s work, which appears to have been very effective. The association there has done wonderfully well and is making headway among the young men of the city. Savannah has the largest association in the State, numbering three hundred active worker*. The feeling among these is so enthusiastic that the work is rapidly spread ing. Griffin sends up a good report. There the work is not confined at all to church mem bers, but includes a number of irreligious young men of whose conversion strong hopes are entertained. The following delegates made brief re ports, indicating a cheerful state of work in the localities mentioned, as follows: W. S. Lewis, of Atlanta; Rev. R. A. Seale, of Jef ferson; L. B. Divis, of Savannah; Phiueas Murphy, of Barnesville, R. R. Legg, of Marietta; George Hanleiter, of Rutledge; S. B. Scott, of Athens. Mr. E. D. Ingersoll, in response to a call, gave some thoughts on “How to advance the work In smaller towns ” He recom mended the use of serial influences, sancti fied by Christianity, but so cheerful and varied as to attract the young, who would perhaps not attend more solemn meetings. Mr. Ingersoll seems to be very familiar with this style of work, and bi3 talk will be pro ductive of good. Dr. Munhall emphasized it by telling of a most interesting “pop corn” sociable which he had once attended. The last half hour was taken up with de votional pxercises, conducted with great fervor by Dr. Munhall. AFTERNOON SESSION. The association reassembled at 3 o’clock, and devotional exercises were conducted by T. J. Elmore, of Savannah. Dr. Munhall replied to all sorts of in quiries on the ques'ion of the work in the State and how it could best be promoted. He recommended iu general terms that the State be divided into four districts, with headquarters at Atlanta, Augusta, Savan nah and Columbus. He recommends that from these headquarters work be done with zeal and Ingenuity throughout all the sur rounding territory. He gave some admira ble plans for pressing forward the cause and carrying it into new fields. Dr. Mun hall is one of the most practical men en gaged in the cause of the Y. M. C. A., and his career has proven that he can put his theories into successful operation. Dr. Iloustcuo, of Stvannah, discussed “What secular agencies must be employed to attract young men?” He advised the use of gymnasia, libraries aDd other attract ive means to call the attention of young men, who could be interested more seriously. The association enjoyed devotional exer cises, conducted by Rev. J. F. Kerr, of Sa vannah, with great success. The Marshall Honse. The register of this excellent hotel daily shows the names of new arrivals, and no better evidence of the reputation which it enjoys throughout this section could bs presented than the con tinued arrivals of guests at this season of the year, generally considered the dull time for hotels. People, however, will come to Savannah and they will stop at the Marshall, where they are sure to find a splendid table, com fortable, nicely furnished rooms, and cour teous treatment. The genial manager. Mr. John Bretnan, never relaxes his efforts, and is determined to keep his excellent hotel up to the high standard of the winter season, when it was threnged with distinguished people from all parts of the Union. It is now in superb condition, and it is really a pleasure for the visitor to find shelter and refreshment within its walls. We can say to our friends from the interior who may be coming to the city now on business or pleasure, that they will find at tbe Marshall the comforts of home, with the conveniences of a first-class, well kept hotel, and they should not forget it. Drowned Hi the Satllla River. We learned yesterday of the accidental drowning in the Satllla river of a colored man named Oliver Fields. He was a trunk mender for Mr. James Bailey, at his planta tion on the Satilla, and on Thursday morn ing started out on the river in a bateau to inspect tbe trunks around the plantation. He was not seen that night, and the next morning (Friday) his body was discovered floating in the water near Clark’s bridge. It is supposed that the bateau was capsized, and being, unable to swim, he was drowned. The deceased is represented to have been a very reliable, trustworthy col ored man, and was highly esteemed by his employe*.

Rowland, J. W. Fretwell, Le Roy Myers. The Treasurer submitted the following in teresting report: Savannah, June 13, 1881. To M. J. Solotnons, Esq., President of the Southern Mutual Loan Association: Sir —The Southern Mutual Loan Associa tion having completed its second fiscal year, I have the honor to submit, through you, to the shareholders,a detailed balance 6heet of the Treasurer’s books up to and including the Bth of June, 1881, from which the fol lowing facts and figures are taken, and are respectfully submitted as information: I. Number of shares of stock of $5 each soo 2. Number of shareholders 171 3. Largest number of shares standing to the name of one person 20 4. Monthly dues receivable from in stallments $8,500 00 5. Monthly dues receivable from inter terest on loans $ £OO 00 6. Making a total of monthly dues re ceivable from installments and in terest $3, ICO 00 7. There is to the credit of premium account $55,818 75, which show’s an average premium for the two „ years of 46.5! 8. This is about (3) three points above the average of the minimum or book rates for the two years. 9. There is to the credit of interest ac cmnt. $6,889 12 10. There is to the debit of expense ae . count $2,819 92 It. Stock dues in arrears $ 490 00 Vl. Interest dues in arrears $ 350 00 13. Stock dues paid in advance $ 980 00 14. Interest dues pi id in advance $ 570 00 15. Number of shares of stock cancell ed by loans 120 16. Leaving shares not yet borrowed upon 380 17. Number of advances of $1,00) each sold during the present fiscal year. 61 18. Number of advances sold last year 59 )9. Making a total for the two years of 120 20. Of these 120 advances all have been called for and been paid in full. 21. And I have cash on hand to the amount of $649 28 which Is sufficient to pay for one more loan or advance, and to leave a small balance In excess. And now, in answer to the inquiry which naturally arises, “What profit has been made on each share of stock up to the present time?” I beg to submit the follow log calculation: The number of loans or advances made up to this time, as previously stated in this report, is 120, and the minimum or book rate of premium at the close of last meet ing’s business is 42 per cent. At 42 per cent,, each loan would net SSBO 00, and SSBO 00 multiplied by 120 produces $69,- 600 00 as the cash assets of the Association. Divide these total assets by 500, which is the number of shares in force, and you have $139 20 as the gross amount, install ments and interest, to which each share would be entitled. Diduct from this $139 20, or gross amount, the par value of each share, with twenty-four.installments paid, which is $l2O, and you have sl9 20 as the net earnings of each share, which is 16 percent, for the two years; but, inasmuch as the stock payments are made monthly, and the average lime that the money so paid in, being consequently only twelve months, the per centage of profit for the average time the money has been in use is 32 per cent., or 16 per cent, per annum. Since this balance sheet was made up $165 of arrearages have been paid ic. I have the honor to be, dear sir, respect fully yours, C. 8. Hardee, Treasurer 80. Mu. Loan Association. COURT CALENDAR.
