True to his Fmexd. Gen. Grant, far
away in Mexico as the figurehead of a rail
road company, seeing his haughty friend,
Conkling, in trouble and likely to perish,
has returned to rescue him. -But frouv pre

deem the vaulting senator from the conse--"
quences of his ambition and excessive pride.
The chances are against him, and the popu
lar feeling is that New York is doing well
to let her presumptuous senator retire.
The "International Cotton Exposition,
for exhibition of all Industries,' opens at
Atlanta, Ga., October 5, aud closes De
eember 31st, 1831." ,
Hon. Joseph E. Brown, of Ga., is Presr-
dent of the. grand Cotton Exposition iio
posed, aud leading meu of several diil'er
ent States, are mimed as Vice Presidents.
It is to be a sort of World's Fair iu the
Southern States of the Union, the first

steps taken in furthjerance of tiie scheme,
all indicate the importance of t!ie occa-
bion, and predict a grand success.
Drunkeness makes a man a beast, or
' . turns a man out of himself aud leaves - a
beast in his room. The transformation
is a voluntary act of the individual. It
is an offense against a man's family and
society, aud should instantly subject the
individual to arrest and confinement. No
- drunken man should be allowed to go free
any more than a ravenous beast, a mad
dog, wolf, lion or tirer. The safety of
others should subject Lira to close confiue
ment. Drunkeness being such an evil
no countenance or support should be giv
en to the use of Intoxicants by liceuseu

- The State can perpetrate few greater
evils than turning loose on her citizens
an agent which transforms them into de
mons. From Froude's Cajsar : "He fought his
battles to establish some tolerable degree

and he succeeded, though he was mur

Two miles this side of Chanel Hill, at
4.30 -o'clock-' Friday afternoon, a ;hail-
storm of ten minutes duration came up
without aiiyJnUmation. The stones were
not of uinjtiidri28but there was a show
er of ice, accompanied by a tremendous
force of wind aud frigid air. Two relia
ble gentlemen of this city were in an
open buggy with two horses. When the
storm had descended at a distance oi" two
or three hundred yards, they started to
drive rapidly to a house just ahwad, but
were arrested by the . violence of the
storm. They haulded up in the corner of
a fence and raised an umbrella, which
was in a few moments entirely stripped.
During the peiiod the stortn prevailed it
was of unparalleled severity, so much so
that the geutlemeii thought their lives in
danger. Both of their horses were badly
injured. A mule iu au adjoining field
was blown entirely over the fence and
landed safely in the road, which jwas
