Rome, Ga.; Atigust, 1873. Ma. Edituh : Soosa.n Antney is nu'hin to me that is nuthin per tikler. No woman aint excep Mrs. Aip, but when I heard they was a tryin her for votin my feminine in stincks carried me straite to the kourthous. I wa3 on her side be fore I got there, and I aai on her side yit. V omen in general is my weeknesa and espe&hally a woman who, name is Sooaan. I always en ried e man who could fondle over t his wiVc or sweetheart and call her "Soosy." It sounds so meller and sof. Ho when I seed Soosan Ant ney arrained up before the judge like a k nvict I was mad mad with the whole Yankee nashun. They raise a hellybillo over the old brokin konstitutiou and mend it tip so as to let the black babboons vote in the rebel Staits, but if a white wo man of sense and spunk dai s to do it, it shocks their pewritati mod e ty. The old judge tried to look fierce and said a woman should'nt unsex herself. 1 have seen a heap of men who, when they got sorter old, took np a kind of sour graip spite against go 'd looken women But Soosan looked at the judge as strait and egul. She stood up square on her pastern joints, and remarked that she was free born and nativ born, and had property -f her own, and had a riglit to vote for the law makers of her choice, She said tha- women done as much for the country as the men, and if they did'nt fight in a battle they raised the boys that did. That havin em and nussin em in sikness and in h' 1th was a harder job than figtr in, snd if men did'nt believe it, jest let em try it a while. She sed if the judge could name good reesun why they should'nt vote she wanted to know what it was. Sooban's eyes flashed a little an gelic fire when the judge fined her a hundred dollars, and slie remark ed that every advanc in sivilisation hed to have its martyrs, and she was reddv. She throwd a hundred dollar bill over to the clerk, and sed she wud bet- another hundred d liars that that money never reached the State Treasury. She dident mmd that old jralge no more than if he was a monkey. She told him that if hey would b.ise the votin business on moraliti, or property, or intelligence, or all 3 put together, the women would be satisfied, but they based it on wear in the britches, and drinkin whisky, chawin tobakkur, and keepin one wife at home ad one some where else. She declared that she had as mutch rite to chuse her politikal masters as Suthern nio-o-ers or the hethen Chinee. That if the women j could vot there wouldent be a drun kard, nor a thief nor a fool on the bench, nor in any other oliis, and whisky would be harder to get than arsenik. An old red nosed, swell faced winked one eye at her, and hik leap ed "the he-he hell you say." When the court adjourned the crowd cheered Sooosey, and one man sed he'd pay the pay the fine; anoher sod he d see her a idir nte with the judge; another said the law ident sav whether the britcnes must be worn outside or inside, and another sed he'd rather risk the wo men to vote ihan thousands of them drunken furriners and fools who elected John Morrisey. Now I've been thinking a heap about this votin bisiness myself and my opinyun ar that Goy. Jinkms is a mighty smart man. ine mst time he run for liovern'-r tney beat him because he sed he dident think that every fool and every vagabond ort ti be allowed to vote. He was 'or drawin in the lines instead of ettm em out, and" the melankolly sequel hev proved that he wer rite. f I was a king 1 wouldent let any body vote who couldeiit tell whether General Jackson was dead or alive, or who took more than three drinks a day as a regular thing, or who Ah awed tobakkur a'ter he had gone to bed, or who was a meaner man than his daddy, or who believed in gos s and witches, or dident put on a clean shirt oust a weeK, or wno dident urn 50 conts a day at sum respektable bisness, or who shouted at nite nfeetinaref more than two hours on a stretch' I heard a blind freenolojist say that the way to test a man s sense was to draw a strait line from the top of his upper lip to his forrerd and another from the lower corner of his nose to the hole hi hi ear, and if the angle between was less than 60 degrees he might be smart for a monkey, but he was a fool for a man. He said that this test wud rule out nearly all the idiots and Africans from votin, and if it dident their faith in witches would. I wouldent lot a f urriner vote until he had lived here aftd behaved himself for 1 erf yearsj and: he shouldent vote then' unless he had married an Amerikan gal or was a raisin chil dren on Amerikan soil. I wouldent let no unmarried man vote who was over 30 years; old though I would let all sich justify by swearin that thev had tried but nobody would - have em. I'd make em name S.'WefFerson D avis. gals in their affidavy. . I would let every married man and u uu Kvciy wiuuer vote, 11 iney cut off fa , foregoing except- ions, ihey fbould have one vote Iliey fbould have one epieca for themselves aud one lor every child they had". This last would rildvata tha Arpiau family about the election times shore. Akkofding to Salomon, all " sich ought to Lav a heap of privileges,' for it aiut no pik ayuue bisness to raise a big drove ot chriidien. r Jest let any hide bound batchelor try it, and see. - I look'upon respectable chriidien as the hope f the State, and if I had lay way these stagnant old rips who won't marry. but prowl around and live easy and die rich and leave no sign, at least none to speak of, should be taxed heavy and the money appropriated to the oifius' fund. What's a nidri wo th to the Stat? who leaves it no defend ers after he 4 d-:nd and gon.ej wh pta rooizes no Sundy schools or Mundy schools buys no candy' or baby clothes, or ba'ls, or barkiw knives, or long stockings, or jackonet inuilin, or noop skirts cr galluses. What, in trust las he pot in the perpetuation of rreat principle.-? Why, a chronic o!d batchelor can just turn over in his one-horse bed and die aud net keer a dura if the world comes to an end in fifteen minutes. He wouldot keer if the devil was to brak loose and eat ud the women aod chriidien alive. .Now Im Dot savin a word apiu them warried foaks who sumhow or e'se haiut aksidently been blessed with off-i pings By t o means They show ed a wiilingutts 'O have em, and that's e 'tuff ftr tiie.

If a ttan f'o lcd his wif out of her vote it woullnt be exactly the eleaa thing, but it would be a family matter, and nobody's bisiness. It wouldn't be the only thing that some men 'ool eta about Theres stroig minded women and weakminded eu, aod in such cases I would letthuJ ing et pi 1j kuoik the persimmoo.

The following suggestions to accom plish it, however, though without pa ttrnity, looks to us as wise aud to the purpose: Many good horses devour l.irg qualities ot gram auu laj.auo aim continue thin and poor; th. food eeo is not broneiiv a-similatsd. If the A. .. I . .!.. -J 11-41. uuai food has been uogroutid grain and h.iy , uolhitig but a change will ef fect any desirable aPeratiou iu the appearance of the iiuimal. In cse that- oatme'i' cannot be obtained read ily, mingle' a bushel uf flax seed wiili a bushel of barley, one of oats, faiid another of Iudiau com, and lot it be ground into fine meal. This will be a lair proportiou for all his food. Or the meal; or the barley,- oats and corn, in equal quantities, may first be pro cured, and one-fourth pan. of oil cake mingled with it, when the meal is spriukled on cut loo!. Feed two or threo quarts of the mixture two 01 thr.'e times a day, mingled with a neck of cut hav and straw. If the horse wdl eat that , greedily, let m'nt.i he pr'adutilfv increased until he will eat four or six quarts at every fend ug. three timos a day. So loDg as the aninvarwid eat this allowance, the quantity nvy be increased a little every day But avoid the practice of allowiug a horse to ttand at a x k well fillel with hav.

TIIE LUCKY JEW. Hon. Judab. P. Benjamin, who Makes Six Millions by His Shrewdness. There has been published an ac count of two Georgia Indies iuheritio" a vsist estate in France. Their lawyer, Hon. Judab P. Benjamin, late Secre tary of State under the Confederate Government, now a Queen's Counseller in Loadoo, gets half of the splendid sura, viz : six million dollars. Below from the New Orleans Times, we pre sent a sketch of this brilliant adven turer The lale Confederate Secretary of State is exactly in his element while settling estates of twelve millions, whatever the currency, or wherevet the., .forum, lie is tiauscendantly a lawyer; but of a capaci'y so compre. hensive as to embrace all callin s in tha-. A', the Louisiana bar Mr. Beo j;iuii had 10 rival. Hs wis without that majesty of presence that distil g uished Mr. Gr rues; without the hau teur, or personal exchisi veniss, with which Mr. Soulo exercised his mas terly ability ; without that obvious seuse of being the hon among proles siooal beasts which characterized Mr. Mazereaii. Ha had none of that seif importance w'lich, in all distinguished men, makes itself in some way mani fest. But all these great men in their cases, often had witnesses to examine, experts it may be, with whose peculiar science, art, or calling; they were not (amiiiar, and hence, at time, were puzzled for qu s ions, or embarrassed by replies ; but never Mr. Benjamin. It was a rare witness that knew more ttau he about his own art orbu-ine's, concerning which be came to testify. And it mattered nothing what it was mechanics, sculpture, chemistry, belles lettrcs whether the learning of the schools, the iron mysteries of the forge, the intricacies of professional science, the customs aod u.-ftes ot commerce and lahor it was all as one, aud the young lawyer was inva riably mater of the witness. At nineteen having, while a nota ry's clerk, studied law, he was form ally emancipated from his minority that he might qualify as a member of the bar. lie might have been sixteei only, so far as looks indicated age, and ou'y bis size of person gave any assurance of over twelve. In every thing he was an nature I to'aliy free from assumption, airs, or affectation of every kiud. He must have held these in contempt, but did not even appear to do so indeed, utter freedom from all ceLsure xr judgment upon his Wlows, was one oi ihe significant, trails of his nature. Mr. Benjauiiu did rot "grow" into practice or distinction at the bar he stepred mto these at once, being spou tateotisly acknowledged as their peer by the fori most professional spirits of ihe bar of that period. There were giauts in those days, too, among these. . j, Mr. Kctijai'niu's deviation into poli tics was not au outgrowth of his tast -s, but of his friendship for the Jupiter lonnns of Democracy John Sudill. They were friends aud iotimates from his boy days up, and together were' Louisiana's Seuatcii when secession broke. It was on l lie floor of the Senate that Mr Ji Qurst-n Davis was capti vated with hit powers, and was L-d to tie to him for the war. But while Mr. lienjamiu is sure to excil in what evev requires; Fubtie ana acute prop erties ot intellect, skill and scholarly attainment, jet in nothing eW, as we think, would that excellence tower so grandly, and attain such perfections as in ti e rrofessioo of law. When he made exile his choice, it seemed to us marvellous that Paris aid the French bnr were not his select. The l'rjno'i language is as bis ver do say ' nacular, aud he speuks in it as co er vote I P'ously and forcibly. French asso ciations were chiefly those of his pro fessional life in New Urh ans. Many of his personal aud profession i.l friends and associates were in Paris In Paris, as in Louisiana, the civil law prevailed ; 60 that 1 xilo would seem mtvrally to point thither.

How camo the dry fcld . - f , exclusive, lean.- At ed, imperious, proud, to seetn atirac tivc in his siiiht ? V;is it the love of hard Ionic and knotty preeedeuts that drew hiiu into the repulsive circle of proscriptivc English lawyers? At any ri'te, Mr. Benj:uin stepped in, and took emineit'-e as his right; as much- at h 'me iu L'ndVo as at IlicTniond, and we doubt uot Irs pro fessional record in the former will ex eel iu all that constitutes true glory and makes an hereditary fame, his war recirdin our unfortunate Con federacy.

The Asheville Expositor says : AT are indebted to a reliable and valued friend, of McDowell county, for a detailed account of outrages in that county by W. H. Deaver. revenue offices, and a company cf Federal soldiers. We would gladly publish the .account in full, but owing to the crowded condition of our columns, and the late hour when the communication came in, we have only room for the following particulars, which we glean from the statements made by our corres pondent : It was on last Saturday that these blood hirsty devils visi ted the house of t'apt. James Good man, a peaceable and respectable citizen if the above county. The Captain was out, and the party drew their pist ds upon Mrs. Goodman and her sister, and demanded them to show the party the way to a still house in the neighborhood. The ladies were very much frightened, and gave them the best information within their knowledge, when the party left and proceeded t into the mountain north of the house, where they found the object of their search. They cut up the still, burned the vessels and house, filled their can teens, and other vessels which they procured at ('apt. Goodman's house from a keg of whiskey they found, drank till the capacity of their stomaches were thoroughly tested, and poured the remainder out By this timo they were about "how come you so," and like demons of the wild wood they proceoded t the residence of Mr. Daniel Jarrett, an old, harmless and respectable citi zen of the same neighborhood. Like ''Heroes of America, they p 'unced upon his old still house, whe e no stilling had been done for lo these many yars, and not one hoard was left "to tell the tale. They cut up Ins stills, destroyed his vessels, and committed several other depredations. From the they went on their way rejoicing, in search of one Albert Gardin, and had not proceeded far until they saw, under a tree, Mr. John Gardin, grandson of Mr Daniel Jarret'. By this time the whole party was pretty drunk, and without any ceremony whatever, commenced firing upon the innocent man, and did not cease until fifiy rounds had been discharged; only one taking effect in young Gardin's back, which will, in all proabability, cause his death. Dr. J. II. Gilkey is attending upon him, and pro nounces his case doubtful Aftr the tiring had ceased, the party ad vanced, and found that their victim was an innocent squirrel hunteiy and not the person at all for whom they were looking. They carried the unfortunate young man back to the residence of Mr. Jarrett, and then wended their way into tho South Mountains, where, it is sup posed, they will continue their dia bolical and hellish outrages. Can no relief be offered to tho suffering people of Mc Powell coun ty? Shall revenue officers and Fed eral .soldiers continue to moles'; peaceable and lawbiding citizens, and insidt aud frighten timid and virtuous ladies? How long will this state of affairs continue in this "land of liberty? ' A ludicrous iueideut occurred at the New Ungland II use in Cleve and a few days since. A gentleman call ed for a glass of miik and ica which was promptly brought by the ready waiter and placed before him, of which he took uo notice, biiug discussing the merits of some of Losses fine steak. A country green who happened to sit directly opposite, observing the (fool ing delicious beverage, reached across, and lay ing, hold the gliss deliber ately lipped the contents. The gen tleman observing tho movement and setlling back iu his chair, looked calm, ly at the green aud exclaimed : "That's co-d, decidedly " The Simple looked at the stranger, and with a face brightcui'ig with the great, thought of beiiig about to com municate a great truth, said, 'There's ice in it!" "The baby is sick, my dear." 'Well, give it castor oil. Dennis, bring up ihe castor oil." "It's a'l goue, sir divil a drop is left." ' Gone ! why we have uot yet open ed the.br tic." ''Sure you have had it evpry day,' an I've secu you use it myself upou your salad." "Why, you scoundrel! you d in't mean to say tlut I've been eat'ng cas. tor oil every day during the salad' season ?" "Sure you have, sir." "Did you not see tho bottle was iahelo 1 'Castor Oil?' " "Sure and I did, sir; and didu't I put it in tha 'castor' every day." . Au iudividti-l having been convict ed upon rather sli.-ht evidence, the judge proceeded i pass judgment as follows' "Prisoner at the bar, you hve been found guilty, by a j 1 r-y of your countrymen, of a criui which subjects you to ihe penalty of de.it h. I'nti say you' are innooent th truth f that assertion is o ily kn n to yourself a d (Jod, It my duty to leive you for execution. If guilty, you' richly deserve the fate which awms you; if innocent, it w ll he a gratifi cation to feci that you were hinge I without such a eri.n3 on your ! science.
