not infrequently a very boisterous day.
In those times there were customs in
vogue which have passed away, and of
which the; present generation have no
knowledge. One of these was the great
abundance of spirituous, liquors provided
for the crowd of voters who came to town
to vote and participate in the excite
ments- usually attendant upon those oc
casions. There were more licensed liquor
shops then than now, and liquors were
vastly cheaper'and 'more easily obtained.
Whisky, peach and apple ' brandy, cider
and cider royal were the most common
drinks, and "sold at from ten to twenty
cents per quart, and cheaper still by the
gallon. They were not only obtainable
at the licensed shops, but from country
wagons (large, covered vehicles), which
were always early on the ground, com
pletely surrounding the court-house,
which then stood in what is now known

THE GREAT EXTERNAL REMEDY I
side the wagon with reference to conven
ience for drawing out and selling, it was
but the work of Ave minutes to get ready
hcl i for business, rlere they would spend tne
?3 - ! Whole day, some of them holding on until
O j late in the night. Almost everybody
S 1 drank more or less, and manv to excess.
; As a matter of course there was much
i drunkenness ; and when politics were ex
citing, party spirit ran high, and fights
were common. That was before the little
pistol became an article of wearing ap
parel and the hip pocket was dreamed of.
Men who "fell out" squared themselves,
sometimes threw off hat, coat, vest, and
tied their suspenders around their body,
and went at it with all their might, "fist
and skull."' and "never quit until one or
the -other 'cried "nuff," or "take him off."
Then the crowd would rush in and sepa
rate them ; and then: the friends of the
victor would crow, or make other demon
strations of joy ; and about nine times out
of ten, bring on another "set to" anoth
er, and another. As many as thirteen
fights have taken place on the ' Court -House
hill," as it was then called, within
half as many hours. But there was little
or no malice in anv of them were out
burst of momentary passion and "too
much whiskey." By the time the pugilists
had washed oil the dirt and blood and got
their hurts patched up, they were hunt
ing up eachother to beg pardon and
make friends : so that this rough play
was really little more than the base ball
amusement of the present dav. It was
exceedingly rare that any malice was dis
coverable in the broils thus occurring.
Now and then an individual would ac
quire the reputation or extraordinary
fighting abilities, and it was sure to give
him a plenty of it to do. Such an one
could rarelv go to a public gathering
without being challenged, and often com
pelled to fight. Men in liquor have no
fears and always feel five times stronger
than they really are. The late Green
Redwine, when a young man, was one of

I Army of the Potomac. Three months
later, on! Nov. 1, 1861, when Gen.
Scoot retired, he was appointed the
commander of all the armies of the
United States. This office, however,
he did not Ions exercise. Being reliev
ed of it with own consent, devoted
himself to reorganizing and disciplin
ing the Army of the Potomac, and to
preparing it for a decisive movement
against the enemy.
He took command of this army in
the beginning of August, and in March,
seven months afterwards, he began his
active campaign in the peninsula of
Virginia. We shall not here under
take to narrate the history of that tre
mendous ; and disastrous struggle, be
ginning with the seige of Yorktown
and ending with the retreat to Har
rison's Landing. It is enough to say
that while it resulted in failure and in
volved an immense calamity to the
Union cause, it was yet relieved by in
cidents of brilliant valor aj:d fortunate
combination; and while Medlellan
must doubtless be held to a severe res
ponsibility, he enjoyed at the end of
it to an extraordinary degree the con
fidence of his soldiers and the devoted
friendship of the officers who had shar
ed with him the horrors, the misfor
tunes, and the glories of'the campaign.
But we shall not discuss the ques

patriotic soldier, who in his death is
more endeared to thousands of Ameri
cans than some others whose renown

Sherman will possibly not be returned,

convenes there will be no senators from

themselves they will not be sworn in.
Without them there will be only sev
enteen Republican senators less than

the senate. The Democratic senators
will never permit so gross a usurpation
of authority to be carried out if it is
undertaken, and they will not sit in
the senate if it is attempted. The re

spise the necessity of beating up a fellow
man merely to prove that they could do
it, These were the times and this the
condition of society which gave rise to
temperance societies. Many good citi
zens, deploring such a state of abounding
dissipation and immorality, labored hard
to arrest it, and it was long before they
were able to make any perceptible im
pression. But the work commenced
here in 1832 was continued with un-
abating zeal until public sentiment final
ly crystahzed against it, and we have it
down to- what it is at the present dav.
Under the old system the legal frater
jiity had much more work to do, and
made more money than under the -new.
Whether or not this accounts for the
fact that lawyers, as a general rule,
have not been leaders in temperance
movements, the writer will not under
take to say. But it is noteworthy that
wherever liquor drinking is prohibited,
there indictments for disorderly conduct
are lew, courts are less expensive, and
society least disturbed. By-Gone.
How to Make Good Coffee.
You published from the Atlanta Constitu
tion a Georgia woman's recipe for making
coffee. -It's nonsense. Her coffee is al
lowed to boil awhile. Thus she gets rid
of the fine aroma and extracts the tannin,
which is not healthful. Now, let any
woman who has not a reputation for fine
coffee try this recipe : Buy the best coffee
and grind: it to the consistency of corn
meal. Into a French teapot put an ounce
of coffee for every person. One pound of
cofiee will make sixteon cups and no
more. Have everything clean, and as
soon as the water in the kettle begins to
boil moisten the coffee and leave it to
soak and swell for three minutes ; then
add a little more water ; don't be in a
hurry ; continue to add water until you
have obtained not more than a large cof
fee cupful of the extract. If carefully
done the entire virtue of the coffee will be
in the cupful of liquor at the end of five
minutes. For four persons use a quart of
pure mik and have it piping hot ; heat
the large cups by pouring into them hot
water ; now divide the coffee into the
four cups, each of which will be one
quarter full ; fill with the boiling milk.
This is pure breakfast coffee, the coffee of
the gods, of which no man after drinking
would be so base as t call for a second

A Vermont Soldier on Poraker.
Gen Foraker. the Governor elect of
Ohio, said in the course of one of his
bloody shirt harangues in New York :
"The South does not want to fight. They
got all they wanted 20 years ago. There
was a time when they claimed a South
Carolinian was four times as good as any
Northern man. We chopped that out of
them with the sabre, and punched it out
of them with the bayonet." This has not
been answered from the South, probably
because ijt is really beneath contempt, but
it has called forth a response from the
North, from Vermont and from a veteran
of the tJnion army. This old soldier
writes to the Portland Herald the follow
ing : '"lie writer was, for a time, a Union
soldier, and has been an ardent Republi
can since! the election of Lincoln. He
has no sdrt of sympathy with sentimental
and artificial enthusiasm over the blend

view ; but it does grate narsniy on an
honest Union soldier's ears who knows
how solendidlv the South speiit its best
blood tike water, and endured every pos
sible sacrifice for their dreadful mistake,
to read such words as those used by i or

charge Getty's whole division at Sailor's
creek, know that no braver men ever
stepped down to death than composed
the armies of the South, and it is shame
ful to be always throwing their defeat in
their faces. "They saw our backs at Bull
Run. at Gaines' Mill, at Fredericksburg,
at Cnancellorsville and at Chickamauga,
and they made a drawn battle with only
45,000 against 85,000 at Antietam ; and,
while it is fair to say that they were
wrong and that we were eternally right,
it is low and vulgar and uu chivalrous, at
20 years distance from their defeat, to
twit them with our having chopped and
punched the fight out of them. So we

Juccd to a helpless invalid. Seve
ral of the best physicians of Atlanta treat
ed me for cancer, but without improving
mv condition in the least, and hnally
agreeing that thej could do nothing more
forme. The cancer ov tins time, was eat,
in" out mv verv life, and for five months
wrs a helnless. bedridden creature. About
one vear asro. at the sucsestion of a friend
I commenced the use of Swift's Specfic
Tho fint influence of the medicine was to
iucrcase the discharge, but after a month
or more I beeran to improve, and this won
derful medicine has brought back my
health again. I now do all my own bouse
work, I am perfectly free from pain, and
fr.pl liiro a. new person altogether. I can
not feel too grateful for this wonderful re
coverv, for I am satisfied if it had not been
ifie I would have been in
mv srave to-dav. I most cheerfully rec
omraend it to all those who are suffering
with this fearful disease.
