A movement has lieen inaugurated by the citizens living on Peachtree and adjacent streets to purchase a tract of land to cost not exceeding $1.5,000 and present it to the city of Atlanta as a public park. The park is to be given to the city with the under standing that a sum equal to the amount appropriated to Grant's Park is given to it.

The subject was one James Visber (colored), who had been a county pauper for eighteen months. A week ago he was taken sick and died, and not having any relatives to tako charge of his body, the Ordinary notified the proper authorities in Atlanta, who promptly sent a man and car ried it to the Gate City, to be turned over to a medical college.

W hen just opposite the Americus, Preston and Lumpkin rail road shops the train ran into an open switch and upon a turn fable, throwing the engine from the track and precipitating the tender and baggage car into the pit beneath, smashing both badly. The engine plowed into an embankment and was also consider ably damaged. Conductor Mathews had a leg dislocated, and the fireman sustain' and slight injuries in jumping. The accident was due to carelessness in leaving the switch open. There is a business going on in Athens that looks very small, but it is all clear Jiroflt, and the manager is making a good iving out of it. The business is that of selling bones, and is managed and controlled by Joe Riddley. Booth Brothers make large quantities of sausage, and consequently cut up a great deal of beef for this purpose.

Brunswick Appeal: Rev Charles Smith (colored) called on us yesterday uml stated that our report in regard to his atteinuting to smother his wife, a few days ago,"was incorrect, and that he wished to “make an amendment to it,” which was that Mrs. Hmith was subject to spasms, and t Hut one of these had boon the foundation of the re- Jiort. Seeing that lie still had something on lis mind, we told him to proceed, and this is his story, as well as we can recall it: “You see ilere was a nice young lady here, whose liusbau’ is dead, anil anudder preacher and myseflf was showing her some respects. He axed her to Tow him to 'scort her to de hail one ebening, and she refuse. You see be was an ole man. Den I axed her ef she would jiermit me de honor, and she say yes. Ko dat udder preacher he git jealous ob me, and when my wife hab de spasm lie ti ll it around dat I was tryin’ to smudder her. He! he! he! De folks will laugh to-morrer when dey read dat.” Wo told him we thought that they would. Walker County .Vries: One of our most popular preachers tells a “rich one” on some of the boys who “wore the gray,” “one of whom he was which:" While quartered in North Mississippi they attempted to open negotiations with a stingy farmer for the purchase of a bee-gum. He refused to sell the honey, whereupon the boys informed him in a chivalrous and soldierly way that they were going to have the bee-guru any way, but preferred to pay for it. Ho still refused and defied them to show their heads about the premises at night. The boys, lieivl on having the honey despite the threats of the old “tight fist,” went back in the night and following the direction of their leaner took tlie very heaviest gum they could Anil in the yard, having to carry it “turn about’ anil wale a crook before they reached the distributing )ioiut, and just as they were huddling around in breathless suspense, anxiously awaiting wiih waterv mouths their midnight repast on Samsons favorite dish, what was their chagrin on the one hand and suppressed laughter on the other. ns one of their number “struck a light" and they beheld before them a large gum of ashes which they had mistaken for a bee-gum* Milledgeville hVcoi tier: T>r. Guy D. Compton, son of I’. M. Compton, wh < - |>orn and reared in Milledgeville, graduated in medicine some tears ago, aixl cutting loose from friends and relatives entered ujpou the sueeeaaful practice of his profes sion in Texas After several years resi dence iu that State, he accepted tho office of surgeon of one of the line steamships which plv on the Pacific ocean between Sail Francisco and Panama. This position extended his acquaintance among men of large means and business operations, and he soon received an offer of surgeon of a large mining enterprise at Sinaloa, in Mexico, with n very handsome salary at tached to it. Ho accepted the place and has for some time past been there iu the jierfnrmanoe of its duties. A few days since I>r. Compton sent to his mother in this city a number of curiosities gathered by him in his travels in tropical regions, and accompanying them was a parrot which lias occa-ioned no little excite ment in the quiet family where it received a hearty welcome. It came from Gauta malu, in Central America, nnd of course it learned the language of the country; con sequently it ruttlos off Spanish words and sentences in a manner that is very liewil dering to those who speak nothing but Eng lish, mid of course the curiosity of Mr. Compton’s grandchildren (Compton and Etta Miller), to say nothing of the balance of the family, is greatly exercised to know what the bird of brilliant plumage is talk ing about. It may he inctih ating the very liest of moral sentiments, hut on the other hand it may be swearing away and using the most wicked of Hpnni-h oaths, Forsyth correspondence Atlanta Conti i h'tion: Another prominent figurehead of the notorious reconstruction government of Georgia is dead—in tho jie son of X.

To them were born six children— two sons and four daughters. In 1849 he went to Florida where lie embarked in cot ton and sugar culture, but continued to preach. Iu 1859 he returned to Georgia and settled and carried on business, but preach ing every Sunday without salary. At one time lie was worth $-100,000, but lost it all during the war. He had $220,000 worth of cotton which was sunk in the Mississippi river. the close of the war be found himself with but $1,500 with which to liegin anew.

About 5 o’clock Sunday afternoon interest was aroused in Jacksonville by the appearance of a balloon, which must have Ih'i'h at least 10,000 feet above the houses. It came over from the north, and when directly over the city is se above the cur rents and came to a standstill, remaining almost stationary for at least twenty minutes, when it descended some distance, and, being caught by the currents of air, was drifted rapidly southward. It was evi dently quite a large balloon, and notwith standing the fact that the best glasses in the city were brought into use, none were strong enough to indicate whether anyone was with it or not. Tlie supposition, how ever, is that there was no one with it, and that it had been sent, up by someone near by for their own personal amusement. The eases of Lieut. Wilcox, Private Sny der and J. W. Grady, charged with violat ing the city ordinances by being disorderly on the streets, came up before the Mayor of St. Augustine Saturday. Lieut.

There was to have been a final rehearsal Sunday afternoon, but this did not come off owing to the ab sence of the manager. Manager Burbridge, of the Opera House, has decided not to al low it used unless the money was paid him in advance, and some of the singers had come to the same conclusion. After wait ing in vain for the manager yesterday after noon the singers returned to their respective homes. An investigation made late in the day revealed tic fact that the manager had tevn round to the hotels and other places where tickets had been placed on sale, and collected them, with what little money had been received, nnd afterwards took his departure for parts unknown. < It was discovered that liefore leaving lie had stolen a gold watch and chain \ alued at $75 from n guest of the house in which he was boarding, failed to pay his board bill, bor rowed s'2 from a colored iiinu which he for got to pay nnd left his wash bill uupuiil. 1 Tide the mattress of the bed on which lie slept, was also found a pair of brass knocks mid a sling shot.
