! Y ORLEANS 101T0N PANIC.
Now Orleans had an upheaval
Friday in the Cotton markets.
On account of the gala days at
New York the cotton exchange
was closed and by some means
false rumor's of phenominal ad
vances in Liverpool got afloat.
The New Orleans market got
wild and cotton went up 54 points
when telegrams began to come
from Liverpool asking the mean
ing. Then it dawned on thecotlon
future men that there was some
thing wrong and again the trade
centers were wild with panic for
somebody, or an aggregation of
som-bodies, had parted with
a bo v l si i v K UU0 unless the futures
can be made nul and void which
is deelaa. A but may not be sus
hi the courts.
At Savannah the demoraliza
tion was aimo.v, as great. Au-gus'-i.
Mobile and other Southern
"markets influenced largely by
New Orleans suffered also.
The-spasm happily did not af
fect us and Concord is standing
riatfooted on Cotton.
It seems something of a warn
ing, however, that dealing in Cot
t.m futures is verv damrerous.

MRS. SMITH'S POEMS.
We had the honor, on Friday,
of a call, in tho. Standard office,
by Mrs. Captain Smith, the aid-de-camp
of the United Confeder
ate Veterans' Association. Mrs.
Smith is an ardent lover of the
Sho left on our desk a little
book of poems, of which she is
the authoress of all but one, we
believe. (That is by an old
' 'vet" dead in love with a Mobile
A number of Mrs. Smith's best
efforts wore for special occa
sions. Among these is the
"Peace Jubilee Song," for the
Atlanta Jubilee, December 14th
and 15th, '98. It is a four-line
six-syllabled poetic greeting,
containing ten stanzas, in which
each stanza ends in a single
"Ye men of Grant and Lee
From near and o'er the sea,
In accents loud and free
Join in our Jubilee!"
Wo like this on Fitzhugh
"As brave as the bavest, both no
ble and true,
As pure as the Mowers besprinkled
Is the heart of the man all daunt
less and free
Whom love we and honor it is
Heedless of danger, he encoun
tered the foe,
And solac'd the Cubans 'midst
carnage and woe.
For right and honor his blood
he'd have given,
And brought on Spaniards the
justice of Heaven.
Ever we'll cherish in this "Land
of the Free,"
A name that is sacred the name
of a Lee."
Of Gen. Weeler, she writes,
"A Hero of Two Wars," thus:
"All hail to the hero, the General
Who . jess of danger, his
c ountry to save,
Twice plunged in tho center of
warfare and strife.
Leaving his belov'd ones and
risking his life
For a cause that was just, a prin
That lives in a heart that is hon
est and true.
For him, a bright wreath of
laurels we will twine.
And with fairest of blossoms
we'll let them combine.

on "Our Dead Soldiers:"

Like leaves in autumn time.
Our soldiers' graves lie scattered
Throughout our Southern clime.
Where wintry storms are raging,
Where wavelets kiss the beam,
Where starry lights are gleam
ing, Where glides the silver stream,
Where beauteous flowers are
Where sunny lights are shed,
Where Southern winds are blow
Rest, too, our sacred dead.
And 'though no dirge was
Above their nameless graves,
Prayers untold we've murmured
For our sleeping braves.
'Though no bell kept chiming
For their parting knell,
A requiem for the honored dead
Each beating heart will tell.
Throughout our sunny clime.
O'er ocean's boisterous main,
Will float around, afar and wide,
Their glory and their fame.
O! starry lights beam o'er them!
Night winds blow gently round!
Good angels, watch above them
Guard well each hallowed

It is a custom among the In
dians that when a prisoner is
taken in battle the tribe hold a
grand feast, in which the
prisoner acts as chief mourner
and leader of tho great wall.
One of the best known games at
such a festival has been called
running the gaunlet. In playing
this game the men, women and
children of the tribe provide
themselves with sticks, clubs,
knives, etc., form in two lines
and force the victim to run be
tween, during which the sticks,
clubs, knives, etc., come into
vigorous action, to tho great
amusement of the beholders
thereof and the comfort of their
Somo such custom must have
been common to the progenitors
of the American people, for a
ceremony noarly related to it,
perhaps the grandson, still, re
mains among us. The following
is an account of the custom as
practiced some four hundred
years ago, taken from a manu
script recently discovered; we
can easily see how little worn
and untarnished the rite has
been handed down to us:
"And the day did come when
the folko should goe into the
house of worship, and give
thanks, and the maidens and
matrons did goe therein, and of
the old menne some, but of the
vounire menne few. Hut when
the hour did come for the folke
to pass out, the younge menne
did gather together, at the doore
of the churche, and did form a
line thro which must the folke
pass. The which tho maidens
liked not, but nevertheless the
younge menne hardened their
hearte, and the custom became
universal among them; and the
same endureth even to this daye."
Satis Sup ehque.
