Mais and Lev*; gtp> Exodus ok thr Frf.kdmen ,—Tlio AngUHttt, (Ga.) Coostitutiopttlistof June 17th Bays : Who» it was formerly declared to the wegroes that they were free, this goodiy city was for days over run by the poor crealwos who, in the distraction of their joy, Hocked hither, they knew not why. To be aroused by no morning horn, to have no appointed hour at which the voice of authority bade them go afield, to go and «orne, eat and drink and sleep just as they would, were mich novel sensations that it i " b not surprising the excitable ne gro nature was half drnoken by the sudden and exhilraating removal of life-time restraints. Kager to See and heur, happy for the day and hopeful for the morrow, they crowded our streets, lounged at the market«, blocked up in motley crowds the doors of public offices, and doubtless by their numbers, their persistency, und their num erous wants thoroughly exhausted at times the patience of those ofti cials who have their guidance and welfare in charge. Within the last few days, how ever, the seething crowds that lounged about the highways and byways of Augusta, have wonder fully thinned out. Mmiy, yielding to the pinches of inexorable neces sity, or becoming convinced that such was their better course, have returned to their former home# and masters, to work as usual, and many others have, by the efforts of the authorities, been provided with j places whore they can support them selves, and be useful to the country. Not a few of them have also depart ed for Savannah and other coaat points, and the result of all these drains has been to permit the mili tary and the citizens to breathe free once more. So far as we learn by our exchanges, the saino wd come change has taken placo in most of our Georgia cities and towns, and as a measure of relief to their inhabitants, and an indica tion of the settling down of this class, the exodus is one doubly re freshing to chronicle. OBEISANCE TO THE PUBLIC. TRI -WEEKLY GAZETTE AND COMET. Time was when this old and well-known journal catered daily for the edification and entertainment of it» Uoat« of reuil«rn and Jiatrons. But, times change and things change witli them. Tbe advent of War,followed, ala» ! by ho many sad and Btartling changes in the condition and pursuits of tbe Southern people, rondered it necoBnary to drop the daily publication and »Räume inntead »simple woekly issue. Tho War terminating, and the dawn of a more quiet and prosperous future appear ing, afford now encouraging earpest of a gradual though sure return to the arts and pursuits of peace, on the part of our people. Embracing the occasion, therefore, to fall in and keep pace with the steady pro gress towards a brighter condition in the afFalrs ofonr common country, the under signed have formed a mutual association for the purpose of carrying oh tho news paper, job printing and bindery business of the tias.tte. and Comet eficc. Dating from to-day, the Gazette and Cwnet emerges from a weekly to a tri weekly journal. To meet the enlarged expenses consequent upon this alteration, we confidently rely upon a generous in crease of patronage. This wo shall strive to merit by tbe labor and attention which we intend dovoting to the several depart ments of business we have undertaken mutually to conduct, comprising as above stated, tho newspaper and job office« ond bindery. As noon as practicable, tho Gazette und Comet will be issued daily. J. C. C hakkotte, T. B. E. H atch, G. A. Piie. Leurrai Mieriitftn'tt Chlet of Klaff. U eaixj'hü.

Now, be it remembered that the »aid 'Squire has an ardent love ot "craythur," and when his love" ia indulged to any great ex tent, he in outspoken, and betray« the "learning«" in the trial of a earn). Well, the principal witness for the prosecution was called in the above trial. He proceeded to tell hifs story. I was going up the street," said he, "and I saw the plaintiff standing near the curb stone. The defendant came up to liirn, looked at him a sec oud, and then struck him a square blow, and knocked him over." "Mitlly for him ! Bully for him !" shouted the Justice in evident de light. "That's wliat I like to see, a square blow." The counsel and spectators were amazed, and sat looking at the de lighted Justice like statues ; then three or four of them burst into a laugh. "Order in the Court," cried the 'Squire. "This Conrt must be re spected in a proper manner. Pro ceed with your case, gentlemen." "Well, but your honor," said the counsel for the prosecution. "I'd like to know what kind of a proceeding this is. How can we try this case under such circumstances—Your ho nor shows"— "Order in the Court," roared the 'Squire. "Gentlemen, proceed with your case. I'm gad, it was a xejuart* blow he struck him !" he continued, ending the sentence in a hearty laugh. 01 course the prosecution "rested" here ; and well they might. The "square blow" had settled their hash in that Court, The defence offered their testimony, anil the Justice dis missed the cas u.—JJubiK/ur Tutus. Gun. Chant in Church .—-Among the interesting incidents of the dedi cation of Spring ( iardun street Metho dist .Episcopal Church, on Sunday last, was the visit of the Lieutenant General. Very unexpectedly to the congregation, at about the hour of service commencing, General Grant, with two of his children, accompa nied by two of his staff and George II. Stuart, K sq., entered the church, which was very densely crowded. Rev. James Neill took the party in charge, and furnished them with seats within the altar. The General appeared much impressed with the eloquence of Bishop Simpson, when, after the sermon, the subscriptions were being made, he beckoned to one of the oflicers, who, af ter conferring with him, announced that General Grant desired to contribute five hun dred dollars for himself and one hun dred for Mrs. Grant towards the erec tion of the church. At the close of tho services he was formally intro duced by the liev. Mr. Cookman, the pastor to the audience, who all rose to their feet as th« General stood before them. Very soon he was com pletely surrounded by those who were anxious to grasp his hand, and finally made his exit at the rear of the church. In the evening, in or der to show their appreciation of tho General's liberality, a proposition was made to contribute one thousand dollars for a pew for himself and family. In a very few minutes the sum was raised, and the pew is to be set apart on Wednesday evening next.— Philadelphia Press, 27/, h vit. BfzOr A Washington dispatch of the 26th to the Cincinnati Commercial, says : Much to tho surprise of many, the President to-day pardoned Charles J. Faulkner, of Martinsburg, Virginia, who was Minister to France under Buchanan, and latterly special Com missioner to-Kurope. President John son bases the ground for clemency on tho fact that the late Mr. Lincoln promised Faulkner's wife that he should be pardoned, in this, as in every other instance, the President has carried out the unexecuted wishes of Mr. Lincoln. Faulkner is at pres ent with his family, in Virginia. jpy "Sallio," said a fellow to a girl who had red hair, "keep away from me—you will set me on fire." "No danger of that," said Sallie, "you are too green to burn." Thr Hiîrami's Oppkk to Sum. Itself to the Kehel Govern ment .—The Richmond Commercial Bulletin of tho 22d nlt„ contains tlw following statement ot a fact * " James Gordon Dennett is not only the implacable foo ot the South, but likewise of the United State« en tire ; in fact, the enemy of all who do not offer to reward him. This is the editor who ha« taken a most ac tive part in the past war. He was the first to agitate secession, and at one time absolutely advocated the secession of New \ ork city in I8GI as an "independent city," but the abolitionists, both of New England and other Northern States, knew his weakness, and ho was, therefor«, easily converted to their bloodthirsty views bv the sight of golâ. m J m * * * » * " 1 1 has been whispered that in the beginning of the war this self-sam« "old mail" wroto a letter to Mr. Davis, then tho President of the Confederate States, offering to Bup port the policy of his government for the sum of lifty thousand pounds sterling. This is reported to be a fact hy men of influence who are pre sumed to know ; and, as Mr. Davis is now a prisoner in the hands of the Government, wo most respectfully suggest that he be called upon to ac knowledge whether or not onr asser tion is correct. Mr. Davis refused this disgusting proposition, as all gentlemen wouid have done, and hence the malignity of this "poor old man" to the South." That Bennett asked Mr. Davis to give him .£50,000 to support and advocate the rebellion and that Mr. Davis declined the offer, we have known for some months, but have Hot been at liberty to make public. The fact was stated to us by a gen tleman to whom Mr. Davis himself alleged it—a gentleman whose word would not be doubted were we at liberty to mention his name, and Who, "although politically opposed to him, yet eiyoyed his personal confi dence, and between whom and tho rebel President there was such inti macy that to him first Mr. Davis communicated the dispatch of Gen eral Lee urging the evacuation of Richmond. If our recollection serves us, Ben nett, in his offer to Mr. Davis, stipu lated that this ,£50,000 should be deposited to his credit abroad, and also that the rebel Government should mako good any losses he might incur in advocating its cause. Mr. Davis declined the offer, pre ferring to establish an opon, honest organ, the Index, in London, and thereby showed a very correct aj> preciation of tho Herald's utter lack of political weight and influence, itn probable treachery, its certain cow ardice, as shown when it was com pelled to hoist the stars and stripes, and its capacity to make any causn odious by its support. A Paris Anecdote .—M. Legtrave, of the French Academy, f tells this story of his body-servant in Paris. Some years ago he let it be known to his baker and butcher and grocer that he wanted a body-servant. He received fifty applications a day; none of them suited. One morning while he was hard at work in his study, it was about 5 o'clock a. m., in winter, somebody knocked at the door. He opened it. "I am told you wish a confidential servant, Sir !" "Yes, and you think you are the man I want ; you have first rate recommendations, and lived, I dare say, ten years in your last place." "No, sir, I am just out of jail !" You may imagine the astonishment ot M. Legouve. "Just out of jail !" "Yes, sir, 1 loved a woman who requirwd money. I gave her all I earned hon estly—'twas not enough—I thieved to gratify lier covetousness. I was arrested, tried, convicted and sent to the penitentiary for three years, which expired last Saturday." "Do you think that a recommendation to place of confidential servant V "Yes, sir. A man who has lost his char acter by an hour of folly will be on his guard against temptation, and will strive to regain his reputation. Besides, I know I am at heart an honest man." There was in the fel low's tone such an honest accent, M. Legouve took him in at once, and has never since repented it. The a released convict has now tho keys of the house, pays all the bills and does all the marketing. M. Legouve saya hi« household expenses are 33£ pet cent, lesa than they were before.
