bright and red in Georgia as in York and Somerset. But for her Negro population, Georgia would have an English look. The Negro is a fact-though not the fact of facts — in Georgia. Unlike Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina-States in which the Black element is stronger in number than the White-Georgia has a White majority of votes; yet her majority on the whole is slight, and her Negro population is so massed as to command the ballot-boxes in many counties. For example — in Baldwin County, Early County, and Sumter County there are nearly two Negroes to each White; in Baker County, Camden County, Columbia County, Effingham County, and Troup County there are more than two Negroes to each White; in Liberty County there are nearly three Negroes to each White; in Bullock County and Hurston County there are more than three Negroes to each White; and in Lee County there are four Negroes to every White. If all the Negroes in these counties held together, under the advice of carp

ounty, Ga. He attended the old-field schools of his county, at the age of fifteen entered the academy of Milton Wilder, at Jeffersonville, and afterward was a student at Forsyth, Ga., until 1836, when he adventurously enlisted in Capt. W. A. Black's company, one of the five raised for the Seminole war. He was in that part of General Scott's command that rescued General Gaines when surrounded by the Seminoles. At the expiration of his term of enlistment he entered Oglethorpe university, Baldwin county, and after three years entered the university of Virginia, which he attended until 1841, when he returned home on account of his father's death. He practiced law at Forsyth three years and then moved to Oglethorpe, where he resided until 1861. Being an honorary member of the Macon county volunteers, he went with that company when it responded to Governor Brown's call, and with nineteen other companies was mustered into service at Augusta, Ga., in May, 1861. They were sent to Portsmout
before the close of the war, in February, 1865. Being a man of generous nature and manly impulses, he was greatly admired and loved by his soldiers. He knew how to obey as well as command, and set before his men an example of the implicit obedience due by a subordinate to a superior officer. Since the war he has led a quiet, uneventful life, the kind best calculated to give peace and comfort to declining years. Brigadier-General Moses Wright Hannon was a native of Georgia, born in Baldwin county in 1827, the son of a planter and lawyer, whose wife was an aunt of Hon. Augustus R. Wright of that State. He moved to Alabama in 1847, settled in Montgomery county and engaged in mercantile business, in which he continued, except during a residence in California for eight years, from 1850. He was living in Montgomery when the war began, and at once entered the service of the Confederate States as lieutenant-colonel of the First Alabama cavalry. A few months later he raised the Fifty-

A moment of horror. For twenty-three years old Jake Willard has cultivated the soil in Baldwin county, and drawn therefrom a support for himself and wife. He is childless. Not long ago, Jake left the house in search of a missing cow. His route led him through an old, worn-out patch of clay land, of about six acres in extent, in the centre of which was a well, twenty-five or thirty feet deep, that at some time, probably, had furnished the inmates of a dilapidated house near by with water.--In passing by this spot an ill wind drifted Jake's "tile" from his head, and maliciously wafted it to the edge of the well, and in it tumbled. Now, Jake had always practiced the virtue of economy, and he immediately set about recovering the lost hat. He ran to the well, and finding it was dry at the bottom, he uncoiled the rope which he had brought for the purpose of capturing the truant cow, and after several attempts to catch the hat with a noose, he concluded to save time by going down
The right Sort of patriotism --Gen. S. P. Mvric, of Baldwin county, Ga., writes to the Macon Trigraph that the whole of his crops of wheat and corn have been set aside for the army and the families of soldiers. Farmer, "go thou and do likewise."

caused the party to depart precipitately, and thus the buildings and contents were saved. "To leave nothing undone to complete the infamy of this Yankee general's conduct, he caused all the sugar of the lady, whose hospitality, he had forced, to be filled with sand, as well as her jars of sweetmeats and preserves. Such was the conduct of General Kilpatrick. We can well understand what the lower officers and privates of such a General would do. At the plantation of General Cobb, in Baldwin county, where General Sherman made his headquarters for thirty-six hours, everything was destroyed by his order, and his soldiers robbed the negroes of their shoes, blankets, clothing, knives and forks, and cooking utensils. Negro women were thrown down and their shoes taken off their feet, and their cabins pilfered of everything they could put their hands upon. As none of his negroes could be induced to go off with them, they stole a boy about twelve years old and carried him off, in spite o
