There are a few talkative fellows on the streets who would become offended if it were charged ' that thry were not Democrats, and Mill, at the same time, are doing all in their power to defeat the ticket. The mode of attack practiced by tins class of wretches is not by open and manly opposition, but by covert in sinuations they seek to poison th pub- lie mind. Tlicy will pretend to wnisper into the ear of every special friend that passes some great secret, the purport of which is that the informant has been told that Mr. So-and-so, who is a candi date, stands charged with thifl or that, and that it is found greatly to his injury. The busy-bodies are so ftill of the gossip picked up, that they naturally run over in the presence of every man met on the streets, until they are actually exhausted telling over the same story so frequently. Now, if a calm, reflecting mind will sit down, after listening to those tales (not J of low) and examine into them, it will be found there is nothing of consequence in them, even if true, as related. These reports gather strength as they go, and by being told under the mask and pledge of secresy. We are sorry to see Ub our own eyes.and hear with our own eors.that a few of the persons alluded to are some of ha AnfuatvA mndidntos who ran before the late Convention and failnd to received two-thirds vote 01 me aeiegawi wrrnrui on the occasion. Self-respect and dig nity would seem to require such charac ters, for at Wat a while, to remain quiet. If a man has xied defeat in any equal encounter, it is oW( brave, just and chivalrous to ackno-hj4i U and abide by the result. To whine, complaiu, and afterward seek to do his former op ponent injury for thus having gotten the better of him, must be characterized as onijecoming and cowardly. One of the braveat acts of a man, and b!eh we are all at times called upon to i4i, is to stand up against adversity, and to laugh, a it were, at defeat. Our friends who have been unfortu nate before the Convention should r member that there is another day abc4, and perhaps a brighter ooe SO far as they are individually concerned. We believe sincerely that the peopU of SJw'by connty have never before had such an opportunity of voting for so excellent, and well suited set of candi dates as is now running upon the Demo cratic ticket for Judges and Attorney General. It behones everr good Demo crat to go earnestly to wrk -.nd see that it is elected.

The .re., .vent of ,he hour is ll.eM passage oi the Oeoigia bill by tbe Senate. It is not tbe sum as when pnt lhrouirli tbe House, the Bingham amend-mPpl-liitviiig lx cn etricken out, and in lien thereof a substitute, offered by Pom erov, of Kansas, adopted. As tbe bill agreed t remands Georgia into a Prnvi- . aional g ivermuent again, it niaki-s a new j military district, and places it under tbe rontrol of General Terry. Another Legislature is ordered to be elecn-d ia XoT rnSeT next, after which, if lb ,eo plebftave thennclvcs vry e.yaii, ine State easj" be readmitted into tbe glorious family of the Union. One fact intended ' u be t fort, in this ...i. ifc ,l..t ; tbe government ot Georg.a is only Fro-1 visional in iu cLaratter. Strange due- trine t6 leaf fromUepublicann who have .1.. Welofore held at least, during l. . u..4 Smith was never out of ilia wai mw. . the Union, and that fa .Stulo could not separate itself from thai balance1 of its lister Sates! This little experiment now with Georgia will be thethird attempt' to reconstruct those people according to the Radical nroeramme. What a perverse feneration roust be the inhabitant of Georgia! '' ' HI JPreeeps and Practice. When Sir Peter Teazle was ut all times impressing upon his nephew Charles the noble virtues of "the man of sentiment, he had not discovered that beneath a specious exterior there lurked a heart full of wile, hypocrisy and deceit. He had not found himself wounded in bis dearest part by the man whose noble at tributes he whs exultinjj and who was constantly preaching principle! that a sanctimonious-exterior may cover the machinations ot treachery may oc me external habiliments of a fiend, is most severely emphasized, when we, ourselves, furnish the iUustrattoaby being made the sufferers. i mn.al tniiMior jihoiilil imnress oyeX' .mnl well ax Dreceot. His words should mean something, and not be mere empty sounds, as they were sarcastically described by Hamlet, although they in- ouicaiea irutns. n nru m .. fact that the conduct of a speaker is at variance with the tenets he expounds, k.frut U lost and becomes as ludi crous as for a court fool to gravely des .n minn rfiomitv cf demeanor. j Some such train of thought occurred when listening to a discourse of Rev. Wru Cary Crane, pronounced a short nt Center Hill. Miss. He had been invited by the young gentlemen of the place to deliver a lecture upon some subject selected by himself, of a literary character, rather as a douceur to his van ity than expecting to derive any material advantage, although, in the main, he is a very good talker, and had already deliv ered two acceptable sermons to the peo ple of Center Hill, some oi wnora nau known him formerly to their detriment. Pompous and arrogant, he never dis played his self-importance to greater ad vantage! He had injured aome of the citizens, and this farewell discourse en abled him to amply indemnify hem for any previous kindness. He dirt not lose the opportunity, but it was not in the language of gratitude bespoke. He went out of nis way to make a desperate fling at the medical profession, either because a respected member of that 'profession had been one of his generous benefac tors, or that he entertained malignant feelings against the whole faculty, be cause one of its members had unselfishly gone to his relief when he needed such intervention. ' i 5 ' I desire to point out a Jew. of the dis crepancies between the precept and the practice of the Reverend gentleman, be cause I think one of his calling, pretend ing to be so devout, should be stripped of the cloak he wears to conceal his in herent .deformity,, lest he impose upon others by his specious promises, as he. did upon" gentlemen of this vicinity. I shall not pause to aescrme me ni glorious suit-laudation and boarting with which he compared himself to the im mortal Newton, as thongh ht were the founder of a new philosophy which was to bring our world in close contiguity to the stars! Was it not enough to make the blood tingle, or indulge in unwonted paginations, to listen to such impudent anoyance and presumption? A pigmy aping the giwiM Leaving the thread of his discourse, which though at times clever, ae rather discursive, the Reverend gentleman al luded to the members of "the healing art,' as cowpriiii2 many who do not know much who were sufisficd with the froth and foam upou the surfiice, without seeking the pure drafts of in spiration that are in the lower depths. Without the relevancy bciug visible, he related the anecdote somewhat musty, of the young M. D. who, alV r waiting long for a patient, was at lat suddenly sum moned to the bedside of a lady who was n.nrnuiii6d as alarininclr ill. The young physiuiaii, i lb Hitt'nee of pro fessional calls, and whose paiioiio Vai weariad in waiting for an aoknowledg. ment of his proficiency, had resorted freely to stimulants, and was under their lfljicrice when exhausted patience was revived ) z call. Having been shown to the tody he felt her pulse, when he 'ilnediaU;l' x.i,pjj, obliv-1 ions of the presence or the plui:e, biij.. by G d!" The only reason thrt could suggest itself for introducing this vulgar f iijsrjjiBl, was that one of his indorsers for tQii'(t'ffit!a amount (and his in dorsers bai tq pay both pincicfll and interest) was himself a phjs'eijo eminent and acknowledged abili')', of strict veracity and high nonoi charac teristics the lecturer described as em bodying principle, and constituting the lift? gentleman features of character hs cqw4 JI!f. yprv glibly about, but do not seem to liava fctiluij even skin deep in his own composition. The considerate lecturer cautioned the young ladies against the fascinations of tWRZ men who dressed handsomely, curled fc'r gracefully, perfumed their handkert'btrri, r;cntly on minor topics of conversation, aud lywi aqiiisitely. These were not the con stituents ttf a gentlemen, whoshoni'J uot only have an uluuited mind hut an edu pt4 heart that bent the knee at the hriitt onir of Drinciiile.

Wm Cary Crane (euphonious title isn t it?) has appeared to practice locomotion with considerable assiduity. Originally, I believe, from Virginia, he sought the genial climate and generous people of Mississippi, through sererof portions of which he traveled. Louisiana was thought more fertile, aud there he so journed for a time. At length we fiud him in Texas the ultima thule of the United States which is the held of his present operations. Having occasion to represent one of the literary institutions of Texas in the grand convocation to be held in New York, he took Center Hill i ,; wnv and lectured its citizens, de scribing to them the force of language, what constituted the gentleman, and that all medical men were not as gifted and as plausible as himself, but he did not bring any money to liquidate his in debtedness to his indorses, who had to ilispliiirfrp the obligations incurred for him, nor did he give them the least hint W it rnn ever his intention to do so. With an easy 'conscience he considers an obligation cancelled when it is "con venient to pay the cash. M.D. Texas papers pleas copy. ' LATEST TELEGRAMS. HpecUIa t the Ledger.

Washington, April 22. Oen. Logan claims that a careful calculation of the comparative cost of paying the army under the pay section of his bill and under the present system, will show a lariedifference in favor of the former. An Important meeting, made up mainly of Republican journalists and influential leaders of the party, not members of Congress, from all sections of the country, but principally from the We.t, has been in session in this city for the last two days. The meeting being en tirely private, its proceedings have not been msle public: bat it is understood it was deter mined to call a mass convention of all the friends of revenue reform, to be held at an early day in some Western city. The charac ter of the members attending rendurs It of unusual importance. Admiral Porter yesterday recoived a tele gram from Admiral Gordon and Capt. Stead- man, from New York, announcing that dis patches to their canv signed "Porter." and stating that trouble with Spain u inevitable" and to put ever)' available ve?el in commis sion, etc., had been received, and asking an eiplunation. Vice Admiral Porter telegraphed immediately that he bad signed no such dis patches, and did not know the parties to whom they were directed. It Is hardly neces sary to state that these war rumors originated in this city, and are pure fabrications, started by gold speculators.. The State Department is in possession of no facts changing. In any re spect, our relations with Spain. There is a report current that enouitb Sena tors opposed to the San Domingo treaty have ohanged their jninds to secure its ratification by a two-thirds vote, when It comes up again, as it is likely to, for decision. In the mean-1 time, the House seems In no temper to con sider the question by a Joint resolution, as prepared by General Butler. Notwithstanding the denials of Bullock and others that the investigation of the Judiciary Committee has led to any important result, there is authority for the statement that the evidence, when published, will be very dam aging te Bullock, It is said there is evidence which leaves no- dqubt that Dullifok's friends were ready to put up $10,000 in order to get Mr. Carpenter's vote for the scheme of pro. longing the terra of the Georgia Legislature, but Carpenter repelled the suggestion, It baa been observed fur several days past that BuN lock has been in the Senate very seldom, so that Edmund's resolution of inquiry has done some good already.
