Important to Pratt Distiller*. We are - informed .by the Assessor of Internal Revenue of this district, C. H. Baldwin, Esq., ?hat according to recent enactments'and regulations, the follow ing requirements and changes in tho law relating to fruit distillers are now in force, viz: That part of the new internal revenue act relating to fruit-distillers, tokeseffect August 1st, 1K7-- It -abolishes tfie special tax or license of $50 per annum, and provides that the fees for ganging; shall be paid by the United States. It a'tyo raises the tax on tue brandy distilled from 50 to 75 cents par gallon. These are the only changes-in all other respects the requirements of the old law will con tinue in farce, and they are substantially as ?b?ow s : The distiller must give written notice to the assistant assessor, register with, him his stills and give bend. The penal sum of this bond will on all small distil-, leries be about $500. In addition he must keep a book; the form of which-is pre scribed by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, and from this book make mohthly returns to the assistant assessor. His distillery must also be surveyed, but this will be done st tho expense-of the United States. The tax of 70* cents per gallon is paid by stamps which the distill?t; purchases from the collector. These stamps must be affixed to the bar rels containing the brandy, (and can cell- J ed) before it can be sold or removed from the distillery. Parties intending to distill should; give notice at once, so as io give time for the* arranging of all preliminary papers. Oolw tbia Union. jar- General Gideon J.

Eadey, of' Greenville, South Carolina, died at the Kimball House, in this city, yesterday, at 3 o'clock p. m. He arrived here on Monday last, and was taken 'suddenly ill. His case baffled the skill of his physicians, who gave him all the attention that was required. Nor was he wanting in the attention of friends, who sat by his bedside and ministered tb his wants ; and when -life departed, his .personal friends here-many of*-whom* -were Carolifaiahs-rand the noble firaterni-.. ty of Free Masons, honor?d him in the funeral cortege which followed his remains to the train, which wili bear the same back to his loved State. Gen. Easley was a . noble sonk of a no ble State-true to himself, his friends and his coan try. In his last moments he ex emplified his life by submitting- to the will of .his Maker without a murmur of. complaint. The only regret he expressed was not having his dear children with him. to bid them adieu. . Mr. Sage, of the Air-Line Railroad, of which Gen. Easley was a Director, went' with his remains to South Carolina, Atlanta Sun, 12th. .- M. ?"???...>.:. ?7 The Bolting Democrats. A correspondait. of .ihe New Y?rk World gives the following account of the meeting of the bolting Democrats : The anti-Greeley Democrat8 ?r bolters met to-day in beggarly numbers in. the vast hall of the Maryland Institute, in response to a cal] signed by Joseph E. Flanders and John Van Allen, of New York. When the time fixed for themeet ing arrived there were just ten supporters of the movement, a dozen newspaper gen tlemen, and as many more spectators.pres ent.v The spectators probably increased to a hundred before the meeting adjourn ed. It was m striking contrast to the Breckenridge and Lape Convention, which bolted from the Democratic Convention of Charleston twelve'years ago and organiz ed, afterwards in.Jhis_,yery hall. Mr. Flanders, who s?ema to be the prime mov er in tm's bolt, called the meeting to or der, briefly stated its purposes, but de clared that its main, dbj?ctwas to inau gurate an opposition ot all Democrats who were opposed tp^^portm^ of a Repubhca?

He declared th?r-4r?'-2&mo'crat could vote for Greeley with his record of - thirty .fi ve years. Mr. Stokes, of South C arolina, followed in a similar strain, as did Mr. Sherwood, of Pennsylvania, and Mr. Lead ley, of somewhere else. Colonel Blanton Duncan, of what is known as the Blanton Duncan..democracy of Kentncky^ alsp, turned up &png the ojumber. ^A^fterX?re?-'' leyVTerotoHiatfbetti very bitterljritaaiV ed. and a circular distributed to the meet ing giving an epitome of the reasons why he should not be nominated, a committee was appointed to open a book for the reg istration of a|V Democrats who would not abide by the ' nornraat??tt bf Greeley and Brown." Up ' > this evening soma twenty, names-had-been signed, but include no one ^.prominence, and it is agreed^ that I the bolt cannot develop into anything of importance. It is in all respects a fizzle. Gov. Vance on the Stump. Governor Yanco addressed a large aa ' sembly at Wilson, N. C. H? foo? &rong grounds for Greeley. He^ojiefl theres Would be unanimity at Baltimore, and was sure North Carolina would give Greeley and Brown a Urge majority, if j endorsed there by the D?mocrate, and il lustrated his position by a humorous sto ry of an bid preacher into whose --hymn i book some bad boy bad pasted the old song: Old Grimes is dead ; Thai good old mao-, . * We ne'er shall see him more. On opening his book one day before a sermon Iiis eyes fell on this hymn. He read the verse and stopped with surprise. He wiped his. specs and read it again, and said, " Brethren, I have been sing ing out of tills book for 40 years ; I have never recognized this as a hymn before, but it's here, and I ain't agwine back on my book now, so please raise the tnne, and we'll sing it through if it kills us." "Now," said the Governor, "we have been snaging Democratic hymns for 40.' years down here, and we have never re cognized Greeley as a Democrat before, bul if the Baltimore Convention puts him in our hymn-book we'll sing him through if it killstus." This was receiv ed with prolonged applause. Mr. T. C. C. Featherston, of An derson, denies that he Ls in accord with the Grant and Wilson movement As between Greeley and Grant he chooses the former, and will vote for the best Republicans for State offices if there is no Democratic or Beform ticket. fST Congressman Clark, of Texas, is to be post-master at Galveston, at a sala ry of four thousand dollars a year, by appointment of the President. But lit tle more than a month since, Clark was unanimously expelled from. his seat in the House, on a unanimous vote of a com mittee that he held it by the grossest fraud. This is what Grant understands by Civil Service Reform. px- The Hon. B. Gratz Brown, of j Missouri, the Democratic candidate for vice-President, was in New York on Tuesday. Governor Brown declares his intention of speaking and taking an ac tive part in the campaign. The situation he regards as most e<> uraging, and thc work of organization in the West as very complete. He stated that great misap prehension existed in the East concern ing the attitude of the. Germans. The masses, he declared, wore united in sup port of the Cincinnati ticket, the defec tion being confined to a* great extent to professional politicians. ROBT. BU I ST'S l?ew Crop Turnip Seed ?
