Bainst the suicidal course of modern po

become alarmed at the extent they have
tarried matters, and are inclined to throw
ofT, as it were, abstract political issues cr
' questions, and look affairs square in the
face. Especially is this the case in the

During the sitting cf the Alabama Con

We might fill our paper with such

idea, of the true feeling, when we get

We may have a hostile biurb. between

government, before the wave of treason
is entirely checked ; but we very much
doubt it. It is life cr death with the dis

TI:c Condition n::d Feeling In tc
In order to get at the true eentirnentcf
ihe people, especially in a political crisis,
.', Is necessary id get out of ihe impure
atmosphere and clouds of dust raised by
unprincipled politicians. Let us get in
among the toiling millions who feed, and
manufacture for the country the agri
culturists and the mechanics. Publishing
as we do, in addition to this our local
paper, an agricultural journal, we have
exchanges from every State in the Union,
Ncrth and SoutU. We thus have an' op
portunity of knowing something of the
views cf the classes of which we speak.
To our agricultural exchanges we, of late,
look with great anxiety, and, after peru-'
sing which, we are greatly encouraged.
Those in the North teem with concilia
tory words, and insist that the Union
must and shall be preserved." Those cf
the South do the same, and at the same
time'are giving the true condition of that
portion cf the country, as to its' being able
to sustain itself in the capacity of an in
dependent confederacy. As a sample cf
the many southern articles before us, we
extract liberally from the January num
ber cf the Southern Cultivator, one of the
oldest, most extensively circulated, and
influential Southern agricuitural journals
published at Augusta, Georgia. The ar
ticle is froii the pen cf the able editor, C.
THOUGHTS rOK THE CRISIS.
The past year has been so memorable that no one
who has lived through it will ever forget it. It com
menced under circumstances most auspicious. Tho
eun of the new year rose clear and eerone. It shone
npen a tranqni! and happy people. ' There was not
a cloud in the tky. The State was crowned witu
prosperity. Even leyond tho other interests, the
planter was prosperous. His prices had been remu
nerative, llis crops had been nbundant. And un
der the stimulus ofliis prosperity, his preparations
fcr the present crop were ample, provident and
pains-taking to an extraordinary degree. So mark
ed was this carefuliicss of preparation, as to elicit
from us tho observation in this journal that probab
ly never in the history of Georgia, had the ground
been fo well prepared, and the seed so well put in,
as in the instance of the present crop. 2?ut Paul
may plant, nnd Apollos water, but it i a God who giv
eth the increase. It bath pleased Ilim to disappoint
our expectations. Mows, quick and stunning, have
smitten us. Our wheat crops failed. The drouth
consumed our corn andcotton. The worm, in many
sections, devastated our pastures. The poor dumb
beasts languished at a period orainarily cf abund
ance. Close upon these agricultural disasters, hat
followed the political anxieties, which arfl su&eient
to make the Btout-heartedo,us.i!. The eun of I860,
wbi'.h rose se clear, las set amid cloud and dark
anJ portents of evil. What the year 18G1 maybring
forth is in the womb of time. God knows we do
no t know. It is left to us to do our duty and trust
in Ilim. It is a cheering thought that this is not a
fatherless world. If left to ourselves, well might we
be despondent. But how often have we seen it to
be the case In this world's history, when confusion
has reigned ,when society has been broken up from
its deep foundations, when the wild and bad passion
of men were let looa without restraint, than an un
erring hand, clearly visible in its result, as by the
untangling of a skein, has caused disorder to yield
to order, conflicting elements to harmoniio, and
frantic passion meekly to submit to the requirement
of wholesome law. The same wiso Providence yet
lives to rule and over-rule the affairs cf men. In
this there is hope for the future.
iut while we place our trust in Providence, let us
also learn the lesson of the hour. Adversity has ita
uses. It is seldom alone a direct and extraneous in
fliction. It is rarely wholly from without. It isnot
often uncompounded. It springs from both interior
and exterior agencies. When we can separate them
andot tho adversity which besets us, we can sy,
'This portion is mine, I did it and not another."
Then, instead of whining over it, and deploring our
unhappy fate, it is the part of a man to lay hold of
tho offending cause, and if it struggle, to throttle, to
strangle, and destroy it.
While the aggressions of A portion of the North
ern people have been daring and wicked beyond ex
pression, yet thesa aggressions would have been
comparatively harmless, if the South had been uni
ted. 13ut we have been divided madly divided.
It was a political insanity. History affords no par
allel to it, unless it be the conduct of the Jew, who
destroyed eacfc other in intestine conflicts, while
famino and pestilence stalked through the streets,
and Titus with hisXpgions was battering down the
Wills of Jerusalem. Let us stifl these intestine
divisions. Let the whole South move together in
polid column. The interest at hazards, arc the in
terests of no one State alone, but of all the South
ern States. It is a limited and unttatesuian-like
view of the slavery question whi-.h considers it in
its relation to any one commonwealth. Not one
Etep should be taken which daes notVovcrits entire
relations, from Virginia to Texas. It wvnnot be dis
guised that tho sentiment of the flhor. Christian
world is against up on this subject. Any. guerilla
warfare ngainst this sentiment, will be throwing
straws against the wind. United we are strong to
resist it divided we shall fall before it. To fall in
such a contest is to bo ground to powder. If tbe
voice of this journal has any weight, let it be heard
by its readers scattered through every Southern
State, imploring the peoplaof the South, as they
value their firesides, as they lore their wives and
children, as they prixe their liberties, as they would
gave tue inferior race whom they are bound to pro
tect, to confer with each other, to mingle counsel
and to unite upon some plan of action which shall
enable them to present a front so united and com
pact, that every weapon oast against them shall
There is another lesson taught ns by existing cir
cumstances, and one strictly in accordance with the
previous teachings of this journal. We have sud
denly bo brought into a position Jwhich, suggests
great probabilities of war. We are therefore arming.
Lut wo labor under a grenter deficiency than the
want of arms. It is the trust of bread. The State
c f Georgia has not now grain enough within her li
mits to feed her population and domestic animals
until tho gathering of the next crop. It is presum
ed that the rest of the Cotton States are in a simi
lar condition. Last year we obtained our supplies
from tho Nortwest. It may bo that our currency will
be in a condition to prevent this supply, except at
rainous sacrifices. It may be that we shall be cat
off from it altogether. This is probable, unless these
supplies are Immediately procured. The subject it
worthy tho attention of tho authorities of the differ
ent l'lantat ion States.
A part of this deficiency in breadstuff's is acciden
tal, arising from tho drouth of the pa?t summer.Uut
it is much more owing to our defective system of
agriculture. As an illustration, in 1S53, upwards
of fivo millions uf dollars worth of provisions, of
Western growth, were brought over the Western &
Atlantio iuitroad froin Chattanooga to Atlanta.
This sum did not include horses and mules. It did
not include the hogs, sheep and bocf cattle, driven
iiiu the Stato, nor provisions landed at Savannah
from the North.
The deficiency is then a natural resalt of our sys
tem of agiieullare., We are presenting, at this mo
ment, in Georgia, the anomalous spectacle of a peo
ple having upwards of twenty millions of dollars
worth cf the earth's products for sale, yet requiring
alarge proportion of ihe results of sale to buy tho
oommon necessaries of life, which are also the pro
ducts of the soil!
If we were to write until dffonuday in advocacy of
a mixed husbandry, we ctuld net utter language so
forcible as that which is uttered by the present eri
n!9. We are surprised. We are caught unprepared.
We have mnch toseir, nobody to buy, and little to
eat and wear. .
It has been the cotto planter's rule to make all
the cot'jja Lc can, and as much provisions as is not
inconsistent with the largest possible cotton crop.
Our l rej-etit posit ion. teaches- him exactly to revenue
it. To bo certain to make enough of bread and
meat, r.nd afterwards as much cotton as possible. lie
is then independent in prices. The fluctuations of
the market affect bim piihtly. If drouth or war
cute, he w still surrounded by plenty. And beyond
this, this System, instead of exhausting bis capital,
the source cf his wealth aad subsistence the soil
is adding daily to its power of remunerative re
turns. Except ffo far as the poplo are concerned their
pi?riotis;.T, their courage, their capacity of endur
ance and thefr fkiil iu urns never werea peojle
suddenly overtaken by an emergency in a worso
siato f proration in other rrspcc't?, than the peo
ple of the Su!h at this moment; ftjd if it comes to
tho worst, w sLU feel it fcarfajiy. '

Great Discovery. Among the most important
of all the great medical JUcoYeries ef this so, may
bo considered the system of vaccination fur protec
tion from .Sir all Pox.and the Cephalic ITAs for re
lief cf Headache, either of which is a sure specific,
whoso benefits will bo experienced by suffering hu
manity long after their di.-coverers are forgotten.
TTTIeaJuche 13 tho f.ivorite si3 by' which na
ture makes known any deviation whatever from tbo
natural state of tha brain, and viewed in thiilizht
it may be looked on as a suregaardintendod to givo
noticeof disease which miht otherwise escape at
tention, till too late to-be remedied : andits indica
tions should never be neglected. - Headaches may
be classified under two r.amcs: Symptomatic and
Idiopathic. ' Symptomatic Headache is exceedingly
common, aad is the precursor of a great variety of
diseases, among' which aro Apoplexy, Gout, Khea
matism.and all febrile diseases.- la its nervous fora
it is sympathetic of disease of the st-umach constitu
ting eici headache, of hepathic diseas-e constituting
biliouiheadache, of worms, constipation an i other
disordcrsof the bowel, as well as renal and uterine
affections. Diseases of the heart are very frequent
ly attended with headaches; Anaemia and plethora
are also auctions which frequently occasion head
ache. Idiopathic headache ias-lso very common, be
ing usually distinguished by the name of ercon
headache, sometimes coming on suddenly in a state
of apparently sound health and prostrating at orce
the mental and physical energies, and ia other la
stances it comes on slowly, heralded by depression
of spirits or acerbiry of temper. In most instances
the pain is in the front of the head, over one or both
eyes, and sometimes provokirg vomiting; tinder
thisclasa mayalso be nunicdXeuTnlgiu.
For the treatment of eitherclass cf Headache the
Cephalic Fills have been found a safe and sure rem
cdy,relievirg the most acuta pains ia a few minu
tes, and by its subtle power eradicating the diseases
of which headache is the unerring index. .
Bridget. Missus wants yoa to send h:r a box cf
Cephalic Glue, no, abottlo of Prepared Fills;, but I
am thinking that's just itnaithcr; but perhaps ye'll
beafther knowing what it is. Ye she she's nigh dead
and gone with the Sick Headaohe, and wants some
more of that same as reSaived her before.

' No one of the many "ills flesh is heir to" is so pre
valent, so little understood, and so Euuch neglected
as Costivencsa. Often originating in carelessness
or sedentary habits, it is regsrded as a slight di?or
derof too little consequence toe.tcite aniiety.whil
in reality it is the precurnor and companion of man
of the most fatal and dangerous diseases, and as
less early eradicated, it will bring tbesufferer to a
untimely grave. Among tbe lighter evils of whie

alarming symptom. ot unfrequently the diseases
named originate in Constipation, bat take on an in
dependent existence unless tha cause is eradicated
in an ear!1- ptae. From all these considerations, it
follows that, tho disorder should receive immediate
attention whenever it occurs, and n person should
neglect to get a box of Ccphalie Pills on ths frst

will expel the insiduous approaches of disease, and
