Martin; of this city, has constructed a "Hot Air Furnace" in the S-ond Reformed Church (cor ner Findlay and Baymiller streets), which has thus far given entire satisfaction. For efficiency in warm ing, purity of air, and economy of fuel, we can speak of it in most favorable terms. Its permanenov and durability also seem to promise well. The plan of draught and ventillation is good.

The Georgia Stronghold—Its Defenses and Characteristics. The following extracts are from the letter of a refugee said to have recently made his escape from Atlanta: -7 DESCRIPTION OF ATLANTA. . as seen imui otono vojnnfntn. a vast ele vation of granite sixteen miles noxwleasr, Atlanta appears situated upon a lare plain, but as the observer descends from this gkldy height and travels in the direction of either point of the compass his progress is ob structed by sharp 'pitches" and narrow ravines," through many of which flow small rivulets. To such an extent is this the character of the surface, that scarcely an acre of level ground can be found in the limits of the city. .- 1 The soil, where there is any, is light and sandy, with a substratum of red clay. Other portions are gravelly and sterile. The most of the country is still covered with a heavy growth of timber. This de scription holds good until you pass a few miles north of Marietta, twenty-one miles south of Atlanta, Including Dallas, lying a little northwest of Marietta. A few miles north of this run the Allatoona mountains. North and parallel runs the Etowah river. From there to Dallas the surface is Jess broken, and constitutes the best grain and grazing portion of Georgia. Cass county is said to be the wealthiest in the State. When the writer passed through this country no army had invaded it. yet it looked desolate and forsaken. Not half the land is under cultivation. Fences and buildings arc going to decay. In all the little towns the stores and hotels are closed. Travel from morning until night and you will not see a man, save some greyheaded grandfather. Husbands and sons have all gone to the war. Nothing remains to be seen but old women and children, many of them ploughing in the field, and all fearful that ttiey shall not be able to harvest the wheat they have planted. Most of their servants had been run off since planting time to Southwestern Georgia, for fear they might, of their own accord, run the other wav. I presume their crops ere this have all been harvested: doubtless what John ston left Sherman has taken. ATLANTA. The city is laid out in a circle, two miles in diameter, in the center of which is the passenger depot, from which radiate rail roads to every quarter of the Confederacy. On the north side of the depot is a park, enclosed and ornamented with trees and flowering shrubs. Opposite the three va cant sides are situated the three principal hotels. In the business portion of the city are many tine blocks of buildings. Before the war these were mostly filled with con signments of sroodsfrom the large cities of the North and Northwest for the supply of the cotton regions. JSow the city is one vast government storehouse. Here are lo cated the machine shops of the principal railroads; the most extensive rolllugmill in the South, pistol and tent factories, &C &c. In addition, the government have works for casting shot and shell, making guu carnages, cartridges, caps, snoes, cioin- ifcc, &c. DEFENSES OF ATLANTA. Encircling the city is a line of rifle pits nine miles In length and about thirty inches high, upon slight eminences. At nearly regular intervals there are planted twelve or fourteen batteries, said to be mounted with condemned guns! The fortilicatlons were constructed as a aeiense irom raias, and for the year past have been manned with a small force. It is not generally sup posed that Johnston will attempt to make a staua in the city. CONDITION OF THE CITY. In I860 Atlanta contained fifteen thou sand inhabitants, increased since by refu gees and government officials, to at least twenty thousand. As the route from any oue point of the Confederacy to any other naturally leaus uirougn Aiianca, its streets are literally crammed with soldiers and drays, Sundays not excepted. The only exception was a few weeks since, when Gen. Johnston sent Gen. Wright, with two regiments, down to "clean them out." Those Wright did not get the conscript om cer took, including all males, without dis tinction, from seventeen to fifty years of age. He detailed some tanners, mechanics, cripples and invalids to work their own larms, provided tney gave Donus aim secu rity to firlve to the government a certain Quantity of bacon to the hand, and to sell all their surplus produce to the government at a stipulated jriee; mechanics were to work on the government contracts, or for parties having contracts; crippies ana in valids lor quartermasters cierKS ana guard ' SUPPLIES AND MARKETS. The planting of cotton is prohibited by law, ana on tins cotton iana tney nave rais ed for the two years past unusually heavy croDS of corn. The slaves from all te ad- ioininir States have been run Into South western Georgia and new land opened, of which there is yet an endless tract, and the quantity of corn raised has seemed to be enUiSa. i.1ULWlLUBUlllUlilg CUC BUIJ1 v was abundant, there has been much suffering in districts where crops were short for want of transportation, and many from the northern sections of Georgia have taken their children and traveled south in search of food for fe.tr of starving ere food could reach them at their homes. There is a State and county fund for the support of sol dlers' families, but it is inadequate for their SOCIAL LIFE. A shade of gloom seemed to pervade the hearts of all at the commencement of the war, doubtless springing from different sources. Many Soldiers' Keller Societies were formed, some one of which nearly all the ladies joined. They fed. clothed, and nursed the soldiers. Many have continued faithfully to their post to this day, with a perseverance and devotion worthy A better cause. It is my opinion that if it bad not been for the women of the South, and Ten nessee la particular, that the rebellion would have broken down ere this. While many have thus been laboring, others, in Atlanta in particular, have beeu riding in tneir rour thousand dollar carriages, dressed In thou sand dollar silks and two thousand dollar cloaks, and at night attending the iheati or joining in the dance for the benefit of John Morgan or some other hero, m If the war continues iour years longer it gcemg to me those who escape death from bullets or the pestilence must die of excite ment, for there you see nothing nut war. You eat wrf.. You hear war. You talk nothinir but war, and when yon retire- to your bed you dream of war. You wake tired of war, but the despot has you by the throat with a thousand bayonets bristling around you, and you must fight or do worse. FEELINGS OF THE PEOPLE. Two years ! ago tho people- expected Richmond to fall, and were disappointed, for the majority had made up, their minds to go back contented. I do not think they would do 89 now. The flower of the South are either dead or maimed for life. - Every house is a house of mourning. They feel that they have or will lose all at the close of the war let it end as it may; and they are determined to die game. While many are sanguine of success, the majority know that if Johnstop cannot hold Dalton, thai Atlanta is only a question of time. HOTELS. These hotels were never anything to brag of. Now every guest muBt furnish bis own room, or do without sheets, blankets, tow els or soap.'. The soldiers appropriate them as often as they are vacated. For breakfast . he gets bacon, corn bread and rye coffee or sassafras tea, and no butter. Dinner and upper riirfwfor which he Is charged five or ten dollars per meat, or thirtyTaouara per day. r FUTURE PROSPECTS. - The last conscription has taken all white males from seventeen to fifty. The militia of Georgia and some other States includes all between the ages of sixteen and sixty. . The older men is estimated to number In Georgia fifteen thousand, all of which have been called out since the 1st of May. From this tt is readily seen that Johnston's army ' U all there is to whip, unless Sherman gives ' them time to raise another from Infancy, for until then the conscriptions must here- after come from the burylng-grounds. - SUBSTITUTE MEN. The last conscription not only held all,; substitute men, but all the principals, some of whom had as many as three substitutes, ; having been put In from time to time to ap- pease the law, but this time there was no dodging. For to appease a party in thelast Confederate Congress who wished to make ' Jeff. Davis dictator, they compromised bv giving him the power to suspend the writ of habeas corpus. Many took leg bail, when orders were given to shoot all caught in running through the lines. Two men were killed a few days before the writer passed on the same route. One party, who was over age, was sent in irons to Carolina,'.) where, Dy their law, he would fall under age, and 'be put into the ranks. Other oaths were set aside and entered under age, and sent under guard to the conscript camp. ' Others, with pockets full of exemption pa-t pers, were taken off from their horses in the streets and sent to camp. . Death of Cubas. Isabel Cubas, the popular danseuse, died in New York on Monday evening, after a long and painful illness. Her disease was consumption. She retained her conscious ness almost to the last, and made her will, ' in legal form, during the afternoon. Cubas was born at Valencia del Cid, in . Spain, in the year 1837. She was conse- '. quently twenty-seven years old when she died. Her parents and grand parents were . very clever artists, well Known throughout ; Spain. At an early age Cubas displayed ' extraordinary skill as a dancer, and soon ' appeared before the public, traveling through Russia, Turkey, Austria ana ' France. Her last appearance in tho Old . World was at the Lyceum, London, under the management of Celeste, who thorough-' ly appreciated her wonderful powers. -: Some time ago she became an American. , citizen. She leaves a daughter aged about six years. Her mother, a sister and brother are in this country, and well provided for. ' As a dancer, Cubas was unequalled In vo luptuous expression and tropical grace. As a woman, the sincere grief of her many friends is her best eulogy. Descance en pat. The Public Debt. In answer to a resolution of the House, the Secretary of the Treasury furnishes a statement of the public debt of the United States, up to Juno 4, 1804, the totals of which are as follows: - ' Debt bearing in tore rt in eoin. 837,M1.0ei 88' Debt bearing interest in lawful money 379,700,804 SS ' Dobt on whioh interest ha oeased. . 170,176 OS Debt bearing no interest 801,383,104 41 mt Total .....

They were watching the attempt of the great pugilist. Tom Hyer, to. ascend into the house. His tall form was bent' by disease; his once firm step tottered; bis great strength had departed. With crutches and the aid of a strong arm ot a friend he slowly and with anguish took one step at a time,, as an infant would go up.
