Let tht people of our Confederacy take
waruing from the fate of that great and proud
nation of which we were recently a part.
There was no acknowledgement whatever of
the Supreme Being in their political Contti
tution they had forgotten God and it is no
wonder their glory has departed. " The most
High raleth in the kingdom of men, and giv
eth it to whomsoever he will." We recognize
in our Constitution, the authority of Him
" by whom kings reign and princes decree
justice," to whom nations as well as individ
uale are accountable. It is well we have
dene to: but more than this is required if we
would secure the favor of the rnost High,
or would hope to prosper. It is time to give
heed to the authoritive assertion, "righteous
nets exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach
to any people. v D.

It it an old and true saying that if
a man's neighbor speak well of him, it
is sufficient recommendation to those
" who have not the honor of his acquwin

of our old friend, Franklin Smith, Etq
We happened to get hold, a few days
ago, of the vote of Madison county for
member of Congress, which we publish
below. It will be remembered that all
the candidates for Congress reside in that
county:
Franklin Smith 147; A. P. Hiil'lll ;
T. C. Tupper 64; O. R. Singleton 84.
At the Canton box, where all the can
didates lived, and where the bittory of
each was well known; the vote stood thus:
Smith 67; Hill 50; Supper 39; Single
ton 34.
We publish the above vote as an act
of justic to Mr. Smith, and that those
" who have not the honor of an acquain
tance" with bim, may know that. " his
neighbors speak well of him " and vote
for him too. Kosciusko Chronicl$.

this General, says the Savannah Repub
lican, always to whip his share of the
tight, no matter what may be the general
results of the day. At Sbilob be drove
the enemy to th Tennessee river, and
would have drove them into it but for an
unlucky order from tbe commander in
chief to retire. At Murfreesboro, in
command of our left wing, be fought on
of the most terrific batttles and won as
brilliant a victory, as there is on record.
Unfortunately the right and center did
not do so well. And now again, in the
Chickamauga Valley, he triumphs over
the foe and captures seven stands of
colors when ajl the rest of the army ar
flying in confusion from the field. Ho
is a good man wtih unfortunate associations.
The Question occurs : If Hardee can
do so well on all occasions with a part of
tbe army, would he not be an excellent
man to put at the head of tbe whole.
