EuiTon Rnri'iii.icAN. Ry some means I am made the recipient of your vnitiable paper, weekly. Sonic kind friend has taken the pains to mall it to me, ior which I feel very grateful. I bnvo not forgot ton the kind friends In mid around Savan nah and trust that 1 never may. I sec in looking over tlio paper from tunc to time that changes aro on stnntiy occurring, some for the bet ter, some for the worse. Some re movals to (INtatico and placo and some by death from which there is no return, t am sorry to learn that my oltl friend E. Alderman Is seri ously indisposed. Trust, however, that ho may soon bo restored to his wonted health. Wo had quite a se rious time in removing to this place, on account of bad roads mud some times axle deep. Wc arrived, how ever, 'after four and a half days of hard driving, (the distance being in creased by having (o head offstreaniB where tho bridges had disappeared) without accident, though exceeding ly fatigued; yet after all tho trip wua to our advantoge.Mrs. W.'s health being greatly improved. Wo found miiyofour old friends hero who gave us a hearty welcome. Our house was in somewhat a dilapidated condition, but wc went to work put ting on repairs until wo havo made ourselves quite comfortable. Macon has not improved much by way of building the last few years. Yet business has been generally brisk, perhaps, in this particular, it is in tho advance of any town on the H. ocSt.Joolt.lt., if wo except Hanni bal and St. Joseph. Wo have a very wot season so far. The result is, that corn on the flats and lowlands is a failure. On tho upland, and espec ially in tho timbered portion of tlio county the crop is fine. I tool; a trip recently to the Northwest, and in Sullivan county and Intervening townships on tho oak ridges, tlio corn crop is very good, while on the flat prairies little will bn raised. Tlio wheat crop was fair. Most of tho oats were blasted In tho head. Fruit will bo a light crop, owing to the bleak winds in May, which caused many oftho peaches and apples to fall oir. Pears will bo tolerably plen ty. Grapes aro very abundant, though a great many nro infected with mildew, owing to tho wet, and at tho same time iiitcnso hot weath er. Our lo;ality Is healthy; but lit tle sickness, ami few deaths havo occurred since our arrival here. I regret, Mr. Editor, that wo did not know of your ntteudaiico here, during tlio Editorial Convention, but our district confcrcnco was in session, and my mind was so o:cti plcd and time taken up, that I only learned you wero hero when ll was too late. Would havo been very glad to have seen yourself and lady at our houso. Wo aro nil contented hero and satisfied with our work. Hopo to bo kindly remembered to all tho kind friends. I may havo occasion to say nioro about our city and the surrounding country lu a ftituro letter. With this hasty 'article I closo for tho present. Yours, &c, Z. S. Wr.M,i:n. "I can not understand," said a dis couraged mother tlio other day, "why my children aro so much worso titan th'oso of other people. I nm always correcting their fr.lts, always telling them what not to do." And there was just tho trouble. Nothing is worso than to bo continually reiirovlng chil dren, continually lecturing them on general principles, saving over and overs "Never do this. Never do that;" till tho best of children aro bewildered and uiado rebels in spito ol their own intentions. When a little one makes a mUtako, set that special mistake right) but bowaro of legislating for a lllotlmo to people less than ten vcars old. Wo are ofton responsible, lor children's naughtiness because, wn forget that children havo rights. The mother who Is unfailingly pollto herself to her llttlo ones, will lie repaid by their good man ners. Rut the loud tone, the quick em phasis, the arbitrary speech, will bo re peated by the second generation with loovltnblo accuraoy, and tlio mother will bo ashamed ol it. 10,1876. A. E.

Iho general ity of the people expect to bo bound-. fully supplied with feed for their stock during the coming winter. The wheat crop Is considerably bet ter than the people had estimated. Mr. Lewis Wright's wheat crop, which consisted of about 70 acres, made nn average yield of about '22 bushels per acre. The Sabbath School Concert at Red ford Chapel, which is a well construct ed church, situated about fivo miles from Savannah, took place on last Sabbath. People came from all direc tions "from the four corners of the earth." Tho School was honored by tho presencoof soino of tho worthy citizens of Savannah. On bchuldlng the innumerable host, ono might have exclaimed, " Ttioy como I they como ! and still they como ! " Tho general supposition is, that thcro wero not less than four hundred persons pres. out. Mr. Sargent, of Savannah, led in Music. Mr. Earls delivered quite an effective discourse to tho children. After delivering this discourse, ho called on all that wished to have Jesus in their hearts to riso. After rising to their feet ho offered prayer to God in their behalf.

Dyer gavo us a call on Monday and exhibited somo spec! mens of gold and silver oro and also of coal. These specimens wero ob tained by him on the John Wilson farm in Lincoln township. For two years Mr. Dyer has been prospecting for these minerals, has spent not on ly titno but money In so doing. Now he has abundant evidence of the ex Istcucc of very rich lands both of gold and silver, and also of excellent coal Ho has sent specimens of tho silver oro lo Georgetown, Colorado, and bad it assayed, and has returns sta ting that its yield Iu silver is 815 30 to tlio ton. The gold ore, of which ho has specimens, will assay ho thinks not less than 1,500 to tho ton, if not more. Having mado tho discovery, being able to prove- beyond doubt that tho minerals named aro here, tho question now is, will men ofcap- ital invest in the development of the mines? Without doubt, tbo prospect is very flattering for a rich harvest for those who mav invest. Somo of our men of means should investigate the matter, and, if satisfied, lake hold of the matter at once.

As with meilleino men, so with re formers. If It bo not too much to ask that tho vender of cure-alls should bo healthy, neither Is it extravagant to de mand that reformers should themselves be reformed. Preachers of nuritv should bo holy, even as denouncers of sti-aiing should bo no thieves. Rut this quality, so very essential, has been en tirely overlooked by tho red-hot Demo cratic, reformers of the present day. Thoy havo cried loudly for reform, and h ive bitterly denounced Republicans, without In the least reflecting that their own record in the past might bo brought up, and by a little inspection mado to appear in its true colors. This catas tropho, tho thing aboro nil others which tho Democrats bad most to dread, had at last como to pass, and for it, and tho unlucky position in which they nro con sequently placed, they havo to thank no body but themselves. Somo timo ago, tho Scnato finding that tho Democratic members of tho Houso wero determined to mako as much partv capital as possible, and were somowhat indifferent as to where they obtained tlio raw material, resolved to give them a chanco for victory at ono fell stroke'; A resolution was conse quently pasted requiring tho Treasury Department to furnish a detailed state ment, fromlauthcntlo sources, of tho amounts lost to the Government by the defalcations of tho officials under eacii Administration since Jackson's second term In 1832. In duo timo, the statistics wero furnished, and with them a tabu lar statement showing tho percentage of money lost in each $1,000 by Uio do lalcation or dishonosty of Government officials. Thus at a glanco may bo com pared the losses of each Administration, aud tho question of their relaUvo hon esty bo put forovcr at rest. DtirliiL' Jackson's second term tho gross loss per $1 000 was $10 62; that Is, for overv $1,000 handled by Gov ernment officials $10 65 wore lost or stolen. Van Duron's administration Mvared the term ol tho Florida war. nndtholosspor 31,000 was 31 15. This was extraordinary, oven for Democrats and was greatly reduced during tho ad ministrative term of Harrison and Tylor, whon the loss was 810 37. UndorPolk thlngs wero better, and tho loss was still further cut down to $3 31, whllo Tay lor and Fillmoro still tmthor reduced It to $7 61. Undor Pierco tho loss was even less, being $5 8C, but under Ruch nnan It was Increased to 6 98. In Lin coln's first Administration, though tho gigantic war or the Itobelllon was go ing on, the stealing was reduced $141 on $1,000 while under Lincoln' sec ond terra, finished by Johnson, the de ficit was still lurther reduced to 48 cents. Tlio first term or Mr. Grant beheld a re duction to 40 cents, aud uudor his sec ond term, or every $1,000 handled by Government ofllccrt only 20 cents have boon abstracted or lost. Figures speak for themselves, aud these flguies loudest of all. Tho Dem ocrats might have gone further lor In forroatlan. hut could hardly have tared worse. Tho denunciations for the bit eight years showered on tho Republican party for official defalcations havo been so numerous aud so indiscriminate, that ' . V., NO. 43 ' many,' even among Republicans, had al most began to believe ia their troth, and some such exhibit attMs.WM aee essary ior the good of both parties. II Is of coarse very embaraseing for X formers in the full heat and zeal of de- nounclng official corruption to discover that tiro defalcations which now so ex cite their virtuous wrath aro only one eighteenth as large as those cf Van Ba ron's time, nnd only ono-twcntleth as Srcat as those which took placo under uchanan, the last Democratic Admin istration ; and ingenntty of explanation will have to bo displayed in order to get round these facta; Xut It is better that tho lens of troth should be brought to bear on tbo question, no matter who may havo to squirm and wriggle at the scorching focus. Tbo Democratic fa thers have eaten sour grapes, and the teeth ot tho children are now on edge, bnt why should the reform hewgag be silent? If tbo Democrats would look at the matter aright, they would find la tho fact oi Democratic defalcations theso being about sixty times ns great as thoso of tho Republicans an addi tional and overwhelming reason for re form, but, unfortunately, cma lb. woalil hardly avail for their use in the present campaign.

After tho Journal had gono to press last week wo learned of a most shock ing affair that occurred a few days pre vious. In the family of Mr. Nash Jcn kius, who lives four miles south oi town. Is a two-year old child, the pet and firidooftho household. On Uio even ag or tlio day referred to, thc child was playing out or doors when a dog .be longing to ono or tho neighbors, came into tho yard. It seems that, as it was but a short distance from bis master's homo, tho dog came frequently upon the premises ami tbo child was accustomed to play with and fondle him. But on that day ho seemed in no mood lor his accustomed romp, and. instead, when tho Iittlo fellow began to play with him ho pounced upon the clillct and tore his f.ico In a most shocking manner. One ol his teeth scratched tho lelt check, whllo another cut a fearful gash in his lorchcad, just nbofe the eyes, and lay--ing bare tho bono. The screams of the child were heard by a neighbor a quar ter of a milo distant andbronght some of the members of the lamlly to the rescue, thus preventing further Injury. In tlio absence of a physician the llttlo suffer er's wounds wero dressed by Judgo Waliaco, tor whom a messenger had been dispatched. Our informant states that tho child suffered groat agony, be ing delirious part or tho time, but ft was not supposed to be dangerously in jured. 1.ATEII o learn mac mo emm nas so far recovered as to bo out or doors, but several weeks will bo required for IU wounds to heal.

Tbo horso wus not considered very safe forw a boy to ride and his fathor at first re fused but afterwards granted Ms re quest. On his return from the branch, tho boy tied tbo halter strap around his leg above tho knee. Tho horse taking fright, threw him off and dragged htm about CO yards, kicking him until he broke tho stran. On examination. It was found that the boy's skull was bro ken in several places and many oihls bones fractured. Uio skin where the strap went around his leg was broken from tho tension.
