residence of Mrs. Wm G. Smith, in this city, in the
16th year of her age, Miss Margaret Anderson, daughter of the late Capt
Thos W. Anderson, formerly of Twiggs County.
The subject of this brief notice was of exceedingly promising character.

In Fort Valley on the 17th Mrs. Martha Ann Walker, consort of George T.
Walker in the 21s year of her age. It is deemed
unnecessary to say anything in regard to her many suitable qualities as the
character that she maintained in that village, and
her deportment during the three years that she resided there prvious to her
death. Mrs. Walker, though not a member of
any church, left sufficient estimony behind her to solace her surviving
friends and relatives. Three days before her death,
while perfectly rational, she said that she could read her "title clear to
mansions in the skjies". In conversing with Mr.
Walker since her burial, he told me that the last words he heard her utter
were, "all is peace". By her death a fond husband,
an aged father and other relatives feel that a vaccum has been made in
their circle which cannot be filled.

In this city on the 19th, Alberta, daughter of Hone E. D. and Mrs. Caroline
W. Tracy, aged 20 months.

In Savannah on the 17th, after a short illness, Mr. Hugo Thompson, in the

December 6, 1848 Vol XXVI No 36


HUSK BEDS. An exchange says the husking season is the time to secure the
best and most durable of under-beds. All the inner husk of the corn should be saved
for this purpose. True it takes a great many to make a bed, but when once the sack
is filled it is abed for life, and is the lightest and softest thing of the kind that
anyone could desier. The husks curl up as they dry, and never mat down afterwards.
Moreover, no insects ever lodge in them, as vermin do in straw. They are
perfectly clean and being of strong and tough texture, they will not wear out for
years.

"Scientic American".

Every state carried by General Taylor has been by an increased majority,
whilst every state carried by Gen Cass has been by a reduced one.

A test of genuine tea is a grain and a hlf of sulphate of iron; genuine green
tea has a bluish tint; bolica a blackish blue. If adulterated it is all
colors.

Cider drinkers, it is now asserted by medical men in England, escape the
Cholera. It contains malic and tannic acid.

The last time Gen. Taylor was in Washington, was previous to his going down
to Corpus Christi [Texas] whither he was ordered by President John Tyler to take
command of the Army of Observation concentrated near the frontier of Texas.
He will return on the 4th of March to make his his report in person.

The work of the telegraph. The Detroit Free Press says: The unofficial vote of
the city of Boston and the returns from 91 towns in that state were
received here on Tuesday evening at a quarter past 8 o'clock, and before the result was known in
the first ward of this city. The result in Baltimore and Philadelphia city was
received by way of St. Louis via Chicago, in this city, before 12 o'clock at night.
The vote of Chicago, Milwaukie, and this city [Detroit] was in New York
before 9 o'clock.

Receipts of Cotton. It will be seen that the receipts of cotton in this
city for the last 3 monhts , have been unprecendently heavy, and the prospect is,
that they will continue so to the end of the season. We would not be at all surprised
if from present indications, the total recipe by Railroads and Wagons for the present
cotton year, would reach 160,000 bales. If 1/20 part of this were
manufactured in this place, Macon would sustain 3 times her present population.

Gen. Taylor's Resignation.  We learn that Gen Taylor has sent in his
resignation as Major-General commanding the Western Division of our army, and that it will take
effect after the 1st of Feb. next. It is a remarkable coincidence that thelate
order of the War Dept to Gen Taylor, in relation to the transfer of Gen
Twiggs from his post on the Rio Grande to the commandlately filled by Gen Kearny, at
St. Louis, was dated 7th Nov, the day upon which the people ordered the General to
prepare  to assume on the 4th of March next, the position of Commander-in-chief.

The National President. The National Intelligencer notes the fact that Gen
Taylor has received 97 electoral votes in the Free States and 66 in the Slave
States, being a majority of the electoral votes in both sections of the
Union.....he is more than any other since the days of Washington, a national
President--the man for the times and the crisis.

ADMINISTRATOR'S SALE. Will be sold at the court hosue door in Fayettevile,

property and paying for this advertisment and reasonable expenses. Macon. Allen R. Stephens




December 13, 1848 Vol XXVI No 37


MARRIED. On the 28th in Hawkinsville, by Judge J.G. Polhill, Maj Henry WOOD
of
Macon to Mrs. Casander POLLOCK of the former place. "That come what may,
while
life's gay pulses roll, Indissolubly thus should soul be knit to soul".

On the 23rd November by Dr. W.S. Lightfoot (JIC) Mr. Abraham JOHNSON to
Mrs. Sarah
G. EATON all of Jones Co.

OBITUARY. Mrs. Sarah A. F. WILLIFORD, wife of Mr. Williams S. Williford, of
the
city of Macon, and daughter of Joseph FELT, Esq of the City of Savanhha,
aged about
27 years.
A brief notice fo the departed is justly due to the memory of Mrs. Williford.
As a daughter, she supllied an example of confiding and cheerful obeience
to the
instructions and guidance of her Father--preserving undimished, after her
marriage,
the strong and tender Attachment ot her only surviving parent, which she
cherished
in her earlier years.  As a wife, and a mother, she fulfilled her various
duties
under a sense of her accountability to her Creator, and Redeemer--with a
constant
regard to the comfort and happiness of those around her. Free from all love
of
display, she manifested a spirit of benevolence, which was felt beyond the
limits
of her own domestic circle. Amidst prospects of long continued felicity,
she was
suddenly removed from her spere of active usefulness; leaving a bereaved
husband,
and two small children and other realitves, to lament the loss which they
have
sustained, in her descent to an early grave. The record of her worth is "on
high",
where it is hoped she may meet all who were endeared to her on earth--and
enoy with
them the promised blessedness and glory of the "saints in light".
DIED in Macon, on the 18th ult, Miss Emily CARTER. Such was the violence of
the
disease with which she was seized, that in two short hours she was rendered
insensilbe, and so continued till her death. But though thus disabled from
having
such testimoney in death, in regard to her eternal prospects, as might afford
consolation to here friends suddenly bereaved, yet a period of twenty
years, about
one half of her eathly term of professed devotion to her Saviour, and a
life during
that time of consistent piety, afford them a still better evidence that she
has
entered into that rest that remaineth for the people of God.  "Many fall as
sudden,
few as safe".

A WORK OF SUPER-EROGATION. Governor Towns has issued his proclamtion
appointing
Christmas Day as a day of Thanksgiving and prayer. This we regard as "a
work of
supererrogation". The day had already been set apart by a higher power and
for
higher and more special purposed and his Excellency in selecting it as a
day of
solemn Thanksgiving and prayer for state blessings has encroached upon the
right of
Providence as well as upons thos of St. Nicholad and of all the little boys
and
girls in the Commonwealth.
CALIFORNIA GOLD. Washington Correspondent. The engrossing subject of
conversation here is the California God. Hundres of persons have visited the
President's House to see the specimens of gold sent from California by Col
Mason,
our military commander there to the Sec of War. The specimens are very
richg and
are worth about four thousand dollrs. They are mostly in small scales, but
some are
in grains and in dust.....Lieut. Loser, of the Navy, brought over the
specimens
with Col Mason's despatches. He says he had to take a small craft to the
Isthmus
and pay nine hundred dollars for her use". Mr. Carter, merchant of Boston,
came
with him. He had taken goods out to California and at exorbitant prices had
sold
them for gold, taking the gold at eight dollars an ounce, which is worth
seventeen
dollars.
The quick silver mines are believed to be even more profitable than the gold
mines....14th of August, "in the spring, Messr. Marshall and Bennet, in
opening a
ditch for a tailrace for a saw mill which had been built on the American
fork of
the Sacramento, found some gold which the current had collected in the
bottom of
the race,"....persons left their homes and went to work in the
mines...there are
now more than 4,000 white persons, besides a number of Indians, engaged at
the
mines and from the fact that no capital is required, they are wokring in
companies
on equal shares, or alone with their baskets....The epidemic was universal.
The
crews of whale ships and other vessels had deserteed for the enchanted
region, as
well as the enlisted men in the United States Service.

 MARRIED. On the 28th in Hawkinsville, by Judge J.G. Polhill, Maj Henry
WOOD of Macon to Mrs. Casander POLLOCK of the former place. "That come what may,
 while  life's gay pulses roll, Indissolubly thus should soul be knit to soul".

 On the 23rd November by Dr. W.S. Lightfoot (JIC) Mr. Abraham JOHNSON to
 Mrs. Sarah
 G. EATON all of Jones Co.

 OBITUARY. Mrs. Sarah A. F. WILLIFORD, wife of Mr. Williams S. Williford,
of  the city of Macon, and daughter of Joseph FELT, Esq of the City of Savanhha,
aged about  27 years. A brief notice fo the departed is justly due to the memory of Mrs.
Williford.


As a daughter, she supllied an example of confiding and cheerful obeience
 to the  instructions and guidance of her Father--preserving undimished, after her  marriage,
the strong and tender Attachment ot her only surviving parent, which she
cherished in her earlier years.  As a wife, and a mother, she fulfilled her various
duties under a sense of her accountability to her Creator, and Redeemer--with a
constant regard to the comfort and happiness of those around her. Free from all
love  of display, she manifested a spirit of benevolence, which was felt beyond the
 limits  of her own domestic circle. Amidst prospects of long continued felicity,
she was suddenly removed from her spere of active usefulness; leaving a bereaved
husband,  and two small children and other realitves, to lament the loss which they
have sustained, in her descent to an early grave. The record of her worth is
"on high",  where it is hoped she may meet all who were endeared to her on earth--and enoy with them the promised blessedness and glory of the "saints in light".  DIED in Macon, on the 18th ult, Miss Emily CARTER. Such was the violence
of  the disease with which she was seized, that in two short hours she was
rendered  insensilbe, and so continued till her death. But though thus disabled from having
 such testimoney in death, in regard to her eternal prospects, as might
afford consolation to here friends suddenly bereaved, yet a period of twenty
years, about one half of her eathly term of professed devotion to her Saviour, and a life during
 that time of consistent piety, afford them a still better evidence that
she has entered into that rest that remaineth for the people of God.  "Many fall
as sudden, few as safe".

ADMINISTRATOR'S SALE. UPSON COUNTY. Inferior Court. Thomaston. Sale: three
negroes: Alfred a man, Ned a man and Mtilda a woman, also three hundred and seven and 1/2 acres of land more or less, the dower of Mrs. Mary Sanders, taken off.
