November 8, 1848 Vol XXVI No 32ARRIVAL OF CHEROKEE This magnificent Steamship arrived at Savannah early on Saturday morning last in the unprecedented short run of 57 hours from New York. She had on board one hundred and three passengers all of whom spoke in the highest erms of both the sailing qualities of the vessel and her suprior accommodations.
Had it not been for an accident upon the Central Road, the passengers for this city, and point beyound, would have gained two full days upons the land route. As it was, they gained one day.... Our neighbors of Savannah, seemt o have been truly fortunate in their great enterprise. They ahve at least shown one thing: that is is perfectly practicalbe to run a line of steamers between new Yor and Savannah in the same time required to run to Charleston. This will of course give the traveller from Georgia, Alabama and Florida from one to two days advantage.
SERIOUS ACCIDENT. on Friday evening, a gentleman named Troup from Bibb County, GA was riding in a carriage with his wife and a small chiold, along Baronne St. near Julia, when the horses came in contact with a baker's cart, became frightened and efied the efforts of Mr. T. to hold them. They dashed around the corne of Ulia street at a terrible rate of speed, and were finally brought up against a wile of wood near the new Basin. The shock overturned the carriage and Mr. Troup in endeavoring to save the child, fell with great violence upon his left arm, breaking it just above the wrist. He also recieved several severe bruies. The lady and child fortunately escaped serious injury.

November 15, 1848 Vol XXVI No 33Much news about the ELECTION results of the Cass - Zach Taylor for Presidency. "The majority in Georgia alone distributed over five states would have given Gen Taylor between forty and fifty more votes in the Electoral college...It proves that he has a deep hold upon the affections and judgements of the American people.

RUNAWAY from the subscriber in Houston County, Georgia, on the 12th, a negro man by the name of JIM, who sumetimes calls himself Thalus. He carried with him a new black cloth cap, and a light snuff-colored Tweed overcoat, a Watch, and some thrity dollars in money. Said negro is about 24 years old, ligh complected, pleasant countenance, large whiskers, and fully six fee high. I feel confident that he was enticed away by some white man, as he left to go to a negro quilting, and had not received a censure from the overseer, or a stripe in twelve months. I understand that he was in the company of a notorious villian called Jackson, belonging to Mr. Asa Thompson of this county. In 1842, I swapped for this negro from a man who had stolen him in Giles County, Tennessee from George Malone, and I purchased him from said Malone in the springof 1842. Jackson is about the same age five feet 8 inches high, black complexion and of bad countenance. I will pay a liberal reward for the confinement of my boy in any safe jail--I will likewise pay a considerable sum for the arrest of the person who stole him with evidence to convict him. Edmund J.

LOOK OUT FOR A STOLEN NEGRO. My boy, Henry, left my plantation in Sumter
County about the 1st of July last, without provocation, and as I then supposed
with the intention of getting to North Carolina from whence he was brought about
18 months since. But from the circumstance of several negroes in this and
adjoining counties, having left their owners, about and since the time my boy
left, and being afterwards taken, while under the care of white men--I am
persuaded that my boy has also been taken off by some white person, or received
such papers from them, as have enabled him to pass as free. From information
obtained through a boy of Judge Duncan's. who was taken from Dooly county by a
man named Seth Mills, then hailing from Jones county, and afterwards arrested in
Griffin, where he had been carried by Mills, I am of the opinion that my boy was
one among several others in the possession of Mills, In Jones County, sometime
sin October last. What disposition Mills amde of these negros, I have not
learned, but have ascertained intended taking them near Glennville, Alabama.

December 6, 1848 Vol XXVI No 36HUSK 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 softed 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 os strong and gough 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 the late 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 prepar 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.

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".

December 20 1848 Vol XXVI No 38A WORK OF SUPER-EROGATION. Governor Towns has issued his proclamtion appointing Christmas Day as a day of Thanksgiving and prayer.

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

GEORGIA SUGAR CANE. We have received from Mr. Isaac Johnston, Postmaster at Marshallville, Macon Co, two specimens of Ribbon Cane which are acknowledged on all hands to be equal to any hitther to raised in the State. One of the speicmens shows 19 matured joints measuring altogether 7 feet 3 inches....give ample evidence the can will reach quite as great perfection in Southwestern Georgia as in Louisiana. The quantity produced has increased ten fold in the last few years and many of the planters are now porducing sugar not only for their own use but for sale to their neighbors and friends. This branch of industry we feel ought to be encouraged especially in the southern counties as it promises to become a more profitable crop than cotton.
