The Fnnd for Mrs. Garfield.
This fund now amounts to $156,75? 65,
and the promoters of the movement
seem to be confident that it can readily
be increased to $250,000 if the President
should not recover. Certificates for
$125,000 in government bonds, worth
$145,261 25, have already been placed in
the hands of Mrs. Garfield. New York
heads the list with $113,274 60, Philadel
phia comes next with $12,284 25, and
Chicago follows with $11,500. °i> ****■
urday last Messrs. DrexelA t>o.,of 1 hil
adelphia, notified Mr. f yrus VV. Field
that in fhe event of the President’s death
they proposed to receive in that city sub
scriptions to the fund for Mrs. Garfield’s
benefit, heading the list with $5,000, and
inquiring whether Mr. Field approved
the plan, in reply to which he telegraph
ed his approval.
A gentleman connected with the fund
states that trust certificates for the $125,-
000 invested in United States bonds are
held by the United States Trust Com
pany. The income from the bonds is to
be paid to Mrs. Garfield during her life,
and at her death the principal to be di
vided among her children. If Mrs. Gar
field should refuse the income it would
go back and bcc .me part of the fund.
The trust cannot possibly be broken, so
that there is no possibility of its not be
ing finally devoted to its purpose. The
gentleman who makes this statement
also says that he knows that the Presi
dent has been fully informed in regard
to the trust, and that he has been greatly
comforted by it. The total amount of
subscriptions not invested is $32,000.
Grain Exported to Germany.—
Consul Grinnell, of Bremen, reports,
under date of August 6. 1881, to the De
partment of State at Washington that
the importation of Indian corn into Ger
many during the six months ended July
1, 1881, amounted to 1,200,000 bushels,
and that the latter half of the year will
show a much larger importation of this
excellent staple of food, which, when
better known in the country, will in
crease to an indefinite extent. There
have been but few shipments of wheat
and rye this year. The American flour,
which i3 prepared in a better manner and
at a cheaper rate than perhaps that of
any other country, has been interdicted
by a duty of 25 cents per 100 pounds
This tax was established by the Reich
stag at its last session. The duties on
Indian corn, buckwheat and barley art
six cents per 100 pounds, and twelve
cents per hundred weight for wheat, rye
TnE Plot s Assassin in liis Cell. —
A Washington special says: “The gate
and rear window of Guiteau’s cell are in
full view of guards in the rotunda. The
only furniture in the cell is the cot,
which serves as bed and seat, and on the
sill of the window he keeps his Bible
and a few religious books, spending,
however, most of his time reading the
former. Since his exploit with the
guard McGill, about a week ago, it has
been ascertained that at that time he was
much excited, it is believed, because he
had by some means become impressed
with the belief that some parties intend
ed to attack the jail for the purpose of
killing him. Since then he has become
more composed in mind, and the guard*
seldom have occasion to speak to him,
for when not reading his Bible he is
Exit Sessions. —The Republicans of
the thirty second Senatorial district of
New York have done a creditable thing
in relegating to private life State Senator
Loren B. Sessions. He was a candidate
for renomination. but the convention on
Friday last, after many ballots, conferred
the nomination on Norman M. Allen,
who, like Sessions, is a strong anti*
Conkling man. It will be remembered
that Senator Sessions was charged with
an attempt to bribe Representative Brad
ley during the late Senatoral contest
at Albany, and whilst he denied that
charge on examination he told how he
had acted as a lobbyist and paid large
sums for the passage of certain bills.
Such a man is a discredit to anv legis
lative body, and for the sake of decency
it is to be hoped Sessions has now re
ceived his final political quietus.
The following piece of information is
from the London Tim*, it says: “Some
time ago an Austrian chemist is said to
have devised anew soporific, the action
of which is so rapid and powerful that
a few drops cf it sprinkled on the head
and face will effectually stupefy a man
in a few seconds, and render him utterly
defenseless. He gave it the name of
‘baendiger,’ or tamer, and offered the se
cret to the Austrian Government. But
the Austrian Government has not only
refused to purchase it, but has ordered
the police authorities to formally notify
the inventor to discontinue his experi
ments, and to abstain utterly from using
his invention in any way, or to commu
nicate it to others, under pain of being
criminally dealt with.”
Senator Butler, of South Carolina, has
a proper conception of journalism. In
a recent letter to a local paper he says:
“Journalism has become as much a
separate and distinct profession as medi
cine, or law, or engineering, or agricul
ture, or architecture, or mining,
and every family should have a
newspaper if they expect or care
to keep pace with the current of events
in this fast moving age. Books are not
always accessible, but newspapers are,
and at a price that places it within the
reach of the poor as well as the rich.”

A Proposed reace Congress.
A correspondent of the Washington
Evening Star urges the holding of a
World's Peace Congress iu Washington
city in 1884. The writer says: “The
National Arbitration League of Wash
ington, D. C., desire to make an appeal
to the friends of humanity everywhere
for moral support in their great under
taking, which has for its aim the peace
on earth and good will to men so long
prayed for. The movement has been
organized for many months. Its object
is the settlement of all international dis
putes by arbitration, to be brought
about by agitation in every na
tion, but especially by a world’s
conference at Washington in 1884,
when, from all parts of the earth, great
numbers will be in attendance at the con
templatcd Boston World’s Fair. This
seems to be a time when a movement of
this kind could become practicable.
Many travelers over the earth agree that
there are in all civilized countries per
sons of influence who have means, know
the English language, and would be glad
of the honor to come as representatives
to a convention of this magnitude. This
assembly, after mature deliberation on
man’s moral and social relations, would
probably conclude to issue an
address to the world, advising,
among other things, the organization
of a family of nations to so educate
the people on a peace footing that
it wouid be practicable by the dawn of
the twentieth century to disband armies
and navies all over the earth. The re
cent desire of some of the countries in
South America for arbitration from the
United States, after lieing desolated by
war, makes this undertaking at this time
a very important one. Many of the
clergy express a desire of preaching on
the good time coming when sword and
cannon can be used for wire and rail.
It is hoped that arbitration leagues will
be commenced in every county in the
United States, as well as in all the other
countries, so that it will be very un
popular for those in power to expend so
many millions for war, when education
is everywhere so much demanded.”
Why the Germans Emigrate to
The tide of emigration from Germany
continues to attract a large share of at
tention. The Handeteblatt, of Hamburg,
after informing its readers that the num
ber of immigrants landed in the United
States in 1878 was 153,207, in 1879
250,565, and in 1880 586,068, goes on to
calculate that each individual brings in
his labor a capital of $1,200, and that the
total value of the labor thus conveyed to
the United States during the last five
years has been about $700,000,000. “No
wonder,” exclaims the Handelsblatt,
“that the United States of America
prospers!” The Frandenblatt, of the
same city, in its correspond
ence from Schleswig, where
the emigration movement has assumed
large proportions, suggests some of the
motives influencing the people who go.
“Fathers with their sons, and a great
many more sons alone, leave the coun
try to escape the burden or a three
years’ military service.” The people ex
press the opinion that “only an idiot is
unable to learn the required drilling and
shooting in two years,” and that “a
strong man, with sound sense, can learn
the whole affair in one year.” But
for this enforced service, it is said,
Germany would retain thousands of
able bodied, strong young men, who now
turn their strength and fortunes to anew
home on the other side of the Atlan
tic. An example of the decrease in
wages is afforded in the manufacture of
a certain kind of velvet which, in the
five years from 1869 to 1874, paid the
weaver for his labor at the rate of from
66 to 77 cents a yard. At present for the
same labor the weaver gets but 33 cents,
and from some manufacturers but 22.
Prince Bismarck’s protective tariff has
much to do if it is declined to cure this
state of things. It might be supposed
that this scantiness of wages is counter
balanced by corresponding cheapness of
food. But this is not the case. A labor
er, for example, who works eleven hours
a day, getting 66 cents per day, pays 19
cents a dozen for eggs, about 22 cents a
pound for butter, $7 50 per barrel for
flour and 13 cents per pound for mutton.
The Stalwarts In Connell— Current
A New York dispatch says: “Vice
President Arthur had a number of
visitors on Saturday. At half-past nine
o’clock in the morning Police Commis
sioner French called and was followed
by General Grant and Conkling. Sena
tor Jones, of Nevada, also called. They
all had long interviews with Genera!
Arthur, staying for more than two
hours. At noon neither General Grant
or ex-Senator Conkling had left the Vice
President’s house. It is believed that
they were in deep conference. Many
rumors are predicted as to the new Cabi
net in case of Arthur’s coming into the
power. It is conceded that only two
now in office will remain—Windom and
Lincoln. Either Conkling or Fish will
be Secretary of State. Grant can run
anything in or out of the Cabinet he
may desire. The town is filled with ru
mors and reports of coming changes.

news of these to be made.”
Corn in the West.— The Chicago
Times has reports from seven of the corn
growing States of the West, from which
it draws the conclusion that in Illinois
the crop will be three-fifths of that of last
year, which was a remarkably good one;
in lowa the yield in some sections will
be 50 per cent below that of last year,
and m no section is a full crop expected;
in Missouri along drought has letdown
the crop from one fourth to one half,

The New York Tribune says: “A Re
publican newspaper has just been started
in Mississippi. It is the only one in a
State which once gave nearly 40,000
Republican majority. But, of coarse,
there is no intolerance in Mississippi.
Oh, of course not!” On which the
Chicago Times makes the following very
sensible comment : “If the large con
stituency could read it is probable that
the number of Republican journals
would be greater. Illiterate people

A writer in the New York press claims
that the Vice President can never legally
become President unless elected so by
the people. The duties, but not the title
and rank of President, devolve upon the
Vice President in case of a vacancy in
the Presidential office, and it is asserted
that John Tyler, Millard Fillmore and
Andrew Johnson had no right to the ti
tle of President, although performing
the duties of the office.

Atlanta, August 29 —The heavy wind storm
which prevailed all through Saturday night,
although not accompanied by rain, kept many
families awake, as no one could tell what mo
menta heavy rain might set in. It was a night
of fear and trembling.
Yesterday noon the wind subsided somewhat,
and a 6teady rain commenced, which at times
was quite heavy. After dark the wind in
creased again and the rain became heavier,
and this state of things continued all night.
This morning we are having much lees wind
and only occasional light showers. Reports
from the country indicate that the fanners
have been damaged rather than benefited by
this rain. In many places cotnon has been
blown out in the fields and ruined.
The farmers do not feel in the is-st of spints
in view of this new departure in the weather.
After a long spell of dry weather, which has
near y ruined their crop prospects, they fear
that a similar spell of wet weather may follow,
in which case the crops that have survived the
drought will probably “go under” in conse
quence of too much rain.
The creation of the new Northeastern Judi
cial Circuit having demoralized the calendars
of the Western Circuit and the Blue Ridge Cir

the calendars of these two circuits.

Since Colonel Cole arrived here with his mil
lions for the development of Georgia a good
many mares have been made to go. which has
suggested the insinuation that there was “a
mare's nest" somewhere in this vicinity.
Whenever any “pet measure” is defeated by
the General Assembly there are interested par
ties alwavs ready to abuse the legislators, call
them Potty Peagreens, or Pauper Legislators,
or Bull Dogs of the Treasury, or suggest that
they will memorandums of Georgia’s
history on their shirt cuffs. During the war
the ablest Generals were at home or in Con

lators are in the lobby rings.
In his great speech before the Joint Railroad
Committee of the General Assembly, Senator
Brown remarked that it was a mis Ake to sup
pose the people did not understand their
rights as to railroads. Why, said he, our
trains never kill scrub stock for a farmer. If
a cow, ox, mule, horse, or hog is run overby
a train and killed, we are always called upon
to pay for blooded stock or first class animals.
It seems almost impossible to get scrub stock
to go near a railroad. The people fully under
stand their rights in this direction.
There was some little discussion on the Sen
ate amendments to the bill prohibiting the em
ployment of minors in barrooms. The Senate
amende 1 so that the parties could so employ
or consent to such employment of minor chil
dren, but the House refused to concur. An
other amendment proposed to prevent their
employment to sell liquor in any place. Col.
Basinger opposed this on the ground that it
would work great injustice to minors em
ployed in drug stores and in family groceries,
where liquor is sold for medicinal, mechani
cal or culinary purposes. It was enough to
prevent their employment in regular bar
rooms. and beyond this the friends of the mea
sure ought not to seek to go. The amend
ment was opposed by several other members
and not concurred in by the House.
SOME CALENDAR STATISTICS.
The House calendar shows that Chatham’s
Representatives have to date introduced the
following number of bills: Basinger 21, Bacon
7 and Nichols 4, all of which are bills of some
The following members have introduced only
one or two bills each: Burch, of Laurens;
Christie, of Terrell: Brewer, of Elbert: Hagen,
of Paulding: Gray, of Catoosa; Hill, of Wilkes;
Lonon, of Dougherty; McLueas, of Fayette;
Ralnev, of Schley; Sapp, of Thomas; Thomp
son. of Chariton; Walker, of Berner.; Willing
ham. of Oglethorpe.
Incredible as it may appear, yet there are a
number of members who have not introduced
a single bill. They are: Branch, of Irwin;
Bennett, of Jackson; Deal, of Cherokee: Dan
iel. of Madison; Fuller, of Wilcox: Harp, of
Chattahoochee (at home sick); Heard, of Mil
ler; Hall, of Echols (disabled for duty); Hen
ry, of Fannin; Little, of Franklin: McClel
land, of Colquitt; Robins, of Talbot; Sellers,
of apDliug; Scruggs, of Glasscock; Stapleton,
of Jefferson: Walker, of Crawford. The lat
ter gentleman has been in the General Assem
bly of Georgia about forty years, “off and on,”
as Representative or Senator, and yet he has
neither opened his mouth to speak nor intro
duced a bill this session. He is always in his
saat, and votes right to the point.
PERSONAL AND GENERAL.
The name of Mr. Bennett, of Jackson, was
given me in place of that of Mr. Silman, of the
game county, who made the fine speech in
favor of the educational tax biJL The mistake
was not mine.
Another error, however, was mine, - et I can
in no way account for its origin. 110 . F. G.
Foster, of Morgan, and not Judge 'l-vigga, of
Richmond, is the author of the bill a lowing a
widow to waive her dower and a j car’s sup
port for herself and children.
My predictions as to the fate of the bills ap
propriating money to the Yorktown Centen
nial. the Cotton Exposition and Col. Jones’
history have proved correct, and in a few davs
the prediction in regard to anew capital will
also be verified, as there is no prospect for the
passage of the bill.
Speaker Bacon is always at his post, Dd
never loses an opportunity to push ahe&d the
business of the House. He constantly over
looks the Clerk’s desk, and watches amend
ments with an eagle eye, thus preventing mis
takes or confusion. This morning he gave the
House a deserved “lecture” on the loss of time
resulting from their inattention to voting.
Leaves of absence greatly retard the
progress of business on Saturdays and Mon
days, it being difficult to get a constitutional
vote when half a dozen members happen to
“step out to see a man." There are fifty men
in the House who ought never to be re-elected
to seats in this body, as they seldom attend to
the duties devolving upon them.
THE STATE ROAD LEASE.
The special committee to investigate the
ownership of the State Road lease, of which
Representative Mattox, of Chattooga, is
chairman, has about completed its labors, and
will soon report the re.sult.
As was expected at the start, by the “know
ing ones,” nothing important will come out of
the committee, it is a subject that becomes
more mysterious the longer you investigate it.
Great surprise is expressed at the ignorance
of prominent men who were supposed to know
all about the lease.
The chief point reached, so far as I can
learn, simply shows that Senator Brown,
although now owning only a half share, really
controls the Western and Atlantic Railroad as
with a rod of iron. He has been on the inside
during all the changes and transfers, and un
less his power is acknowledged, can suddenly
open a little tin box full of legal points.
What promised, in the minds of some, to
produce startling developments in regard to
the sale of shares and the present ownership
of the lease, will hardly produce a ripple in
railroad or legislative circles when the com
mittee's report is presented to the public. If
there has been crookedness, or a failure to
comply strictly with the terms of the lease, it
can only be made certain to the public by a
voluntary confession of some lessee.
A SINOITLAR railroad accident.
There was a very peculiar feature about the
accident last week on the North Georgia and
Marietta Railroad, some seven miles from Ma
rietta. The special sub-committee on the
penitentiary were on the train, having been up
to inspect the convicts working on that road.
Hon. J. B. Park, member of the House from
Green county, had been riding on the engine,
but got off just before the accident occurred,
and thus saved his life, as the engineer was
mortally injured. The committee were in the
rear cars and escaped any very serious shaking
up at the time the engine went off the track,
but were less fortunate at a later period.
It seems that the rear car of the train did not
leave the track, and the car in front was only
partially off. and apparently in a solid posi
tion. This being the case, the scalded engineer
and wounded passengers were taken into the
rear car. where Dr. Wm. M. Willingham, mem
ber from Oglethorpe county, and Dr E. A.
Perkins, member from Burke county, attended
to their injuries.
Imagine their astonishment when, an hour
after the accident, the rear car went tumbling
down the embankment. Of eourge the poor
engineer was badly injured again (he died that
night), while Dr. Willingham and others were
considerably bruised about their heads, Rhoul
den and faces. The earth suddenly gave way
under the car partially off the track, and ft
dragged the rear car down the embankment.
GEORGIA AT THE YORKTOWN CENTENNIAL.
The appointment of Colonel J. H. Es.il!, of
the Mornino News, to represent Georgia jour
nalism at the Vorktown Centennial, however
it may be viewed, is considered a most appro
priate and wise selection, as the following rea
sons will readily suggest:
He is President of the Georgia Press Associ v
tion and of the Southern Press Association,
and proprietor of the leading commercial daily
journal of the State. No one, therefore, could
more fitly represent the journalism of thin Em
pire State of the South at this grand centen
Again, he is the most soldierly looking mem
ber of the Governor's staff, and resides in the
only city in Georgia whose military corps have
yet expressed a purpose to attend and partici
pate In the Centennial, without waiting for the
State to appropriate money to pay their ex
penses in part or in full during the trip.
The appointment of Col. Esti'l is looked upon
as a justly deserved tribute to Savannah’s
liberal and prompt action in regard to a pro
per representation at Yorktown. and I hesitate
not to say that the venerable Chatham Artil
lery, with its ancient guns, will in no way be
second in point of interest to any command
from other sections of the country. And the
gallant Irish Jasper Greens will worthily
represent the State they have so often honored
in the past.
The proposed new railroad from Troy, In
Pike county, Ala , to Elya, in Coffee county,
will present a rival road from Montgomery,
taking in that direction the cotton which h-s
been coming from Troy to Savannah. Colonel
Wadley seem* never to be “caught napping” at
any of his outposts, but is always ready to
move forward promptly to meet any new rival
that pops up to encroach upon his territory.
Few people believed that the late raid on ths
gambling houses in Atlanta would amount to
anything more than a temporary scare. And
such it has proved to be. The frightened
gamblers have returned, and new and elegant
establishments are being reopened on the most
public streets in the city. As I have before
written, the leading gunblers are too rich, and
too influential in politics, and their operators
too numerous to be suppressed. They hold the
balance of power in city and county elections
The Senate Temperance Committee have de
clined to have anything more to do with tne
general temperance bill in that body, and it
was recommitted to the Judiciary Committee.
It is now too late to seriously consider any gen
eral temperance bill, as nearly all the counties
desiring temperance legislation have secured
the passage or introduction of local bills to
suppress the liquor traffic in their midst.
Much has been done in this way to promote
temperance throughout the Btate, and its
friends need not be discouraged.
As I am not a subscriber to the Magazine of
American History, and saw the May number
merely by chance, the criticism of Librarian
Harden is rather out of place. As he saw the
August number fourteen days before my para
graph was published. It is very strange that he
should have kept the matter private until
after I had called public attention to it in the
interest of the society. If lam to be blamed,
I am glad to share the censure with so excel
lent a gentleman, and trust that while he is
pulling the “mote” out of my eye I shall also
be allowed to pull the “beam’’ out of his.
I notice the mention of Fort Mon lac in con
nection with the Florid* Ship Canal, which
reminds me that the gallant soldier for whom
that fort was named. Major David Monlac, was
the only Indian that ever graduated at the
West Point Military Academy, as Lieutenant
Flipper is the only negro. This Monlac was a
Creek Irdian, born in Alabama, who gradu
ated, in 1822, next to the foot of his class. He
was appointed Second Lieutenant in the Bixth
Infantry, but resigned without'seeing service.
In ISS6 he entered the Florida war as Com
mander of a mounted anmpany of Creek In
dians. and soon after became Major of the
regiment. It was while gallantly leading this
command against the Seminole* in the battle
of Wahoo Swamp, November 21, 1836, a week
after his promotion, that he fell with his face
to the foe.
ANOTHER WIFE WORTH HAVING.
Under the head of “A Wife Worth Having,”
a correspondent of the Aiken :8. C.) Journal
and Review , speaking of a visit to the Hon.
Geo. D. Tillman, says: “In this connection we
cannot help remarking that Mrs Tillman is
one of the most energetic and wonderful wo
men in the State. Notwithstanding the cares
of a numerous family, she mounts her horse
daily and personally superintends every detail
of her husband’s extensive planting interest,
and is considered one of the most successful
managers of a farm in Edgefield county. Ow
ing to the Congressional duties and other busi
ness relations of Colonel Tillman, he has turned
the plantation over to her, and she ha* proven
equal to the emergency. Such a woman is an
honor to our State, and a crown of glory to the
man whose household she adorns.”
All honor to this noble South Carolina mat
ron, but we have here in Georgia a wife in
every respect her equal in the domestic vir
tues so worthily recorded. I refer to the esti
mable wife of Col. Thomas J. Bmith, of Wash
ington, the popular and well known Master of
the S’ate Grange, and one of Georgia's most
public spirited agriculturists. For years past
his public duties have called him away from
home a great deal of the time, and during these
absences Mrs Smith has had charge of his ex
tensive farming operations. In fact her labors
of this kind have been so frequent and so suc
cessful that she is widely known as ‘-The
Widow Smith.” No one is more heartily wel
comed to Btate and county fairs, while her
displays are alwavs the centre of attraction,
for in the domestic duties of the home, as well
as in the management of the farm, she lias few
equals and no superiors. Her imposing figure,
smiling face, and cheerful conversation, have
become familiar and welcome at all agricul
tural gatherings. Georgia needs many more
such nobie women.
Hon. E. A. Buck. Clerk of the United
States District and Circuit Courts, officially an
nounces that they will not convene next Mon
day, as was expected, but on the following
Monday, which is September 16th. Parties in
terested will do well to remember this change.
The Springfield Republican is very much
mistaken in supposing the proposed visit of
the First Connecticut Regiment to Charleston
and Savannah “would be the first of any
Northern regiment iuto the Southern States
since the rebellion ” The Seventy-first Regi
ment of New York visited New Orleans last
winter and were cordially welcomed. Courte
sies have frequently passed between Northern
and Southern soldiers since the war.
The friends in Thomasville and Atlanta of
Lieut. Henry O Flipper, of the Tenth Cavalry,
can find no excuse for his conduct in connec
tion with the handling of commissary funds.
Every chance was given him to promote his
own interests in a legitimate manner, and it
was expected that lie would appreciate such
opportunity. The Army and Navy Journal
speaks kindly of his downfall, and says:
“Lieut. Flipper’s success at West Point and
entry into the army was a triumph for the col
ored race, and as he was the single represen
tative * • * he may be said to have had the
character and prestige of hia race in his keep
ing." Having proved unworthy, he has put
insurmountable obstacles to the future ap
pointment of colored officers.
Quite a sensation was created at the Becond
Baptist Church yesterday morning. Mrs. Ida
Wade, a prominent member of the choir, was
singing a solo, when she suddenly fainted and
fell, thus suddenly interrupting the services.
Henry Leonard, Esq., brother-in-law of Hon.
John H. James, one of the most popular and
experienced bank officials in Atlanta.has been
appointed manager of the Bradstreet Commer
cial Agency in this city. No better selection
could have been made.
I see that Mr. C. 8. WilsOD, of Brookville,
Fla , publishes a young man called “Seals,”
and claiming to be a son of Colonel Seals of
Eufaula. As young Seals has absconded after
