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.

On motion of Mr. John J. Cary, after an able speech by him, the meeting adjourned.

THE UPSON MEETING. The tone of our Upson friends is certainly very manly and decided, and we have no doubt that, should a crisis come, they will be sustained by the entire South without distinction of party.....The North is evidently assuming a more cautious and conciliatory course...give evidence that the beeter class of Northern politicians are receding from their positions, and that the whole question will be passed over to Gen Taylor's administration, by which it will be easily and satisfactorily settled.

INTRODUCTION OF SLAVES. We understand that Judge Floyd, during the recnt session of the Superior Court of Bibb County, called the attention of the Grand Jurors to the violation of the existing Laws of Georgia, which prohibit the introduction of Negroes for sale from adjacent States.
1. The large influx of Negroes from Maryland, Virginia, and other States, tended to depreciate the value of every Negro already in the State; that it greatly increased the production of cotton, and consequently prevented the platners of Georgia from securing as high a price as they might otherwise obtain.
2.That, under the existing state of things,....was virtually paying Virginia, Maryland and Kentucky for emancipating their slaves--that under the existing excitement on the subject, they were sending off their young Negroes to the South and retainingly only the old ones, thus securing, at no distant day, the utter overthrow fo the institution of slavery in those states.
3. Judge Floyd further contended that the introcudction of slaves, as before alluded to, is silently but effectually doing more towards the ultimate destruction of our slave institutions than all the efforts of all the abolistionists and fanatics in the North--that it was holding out a premium to the bordere States to get rid of the agitation, by selling their Negroes and becoming as hostile to the South as the fiercest fanatics in New England or Ohio.
By the penal code of 1833 the introducton of slaves from other States is strictly prohibited, except to residents domiciliated and to those moving into the State with the view of becoming residents. The penalty is $500 for each slave illegally introduced, and hard labor in the Penitentiary for not less than one nor over 4 years.
We fully agree with Judge Floyd that the laws ought to be rigidly enforced, and that the existing traffic ought to be entirely broken up. One of the principlal advantages arising from this course to the Southern States is that it would force the current of Negro emigration to the West, and thereby stregnthen the institution in the border States of Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri.

By application to the Post Master of this City information can be obtained that may be of benefit to the mother or other near relatives of Elias D. Fields, who recently died in the army. He belonged to Company "A", Capt A.K. Blyth of 2nd Reg't Mississippi Rifles. His mother is supposed to reside in the vicinity of Macon and to have married a second time.

Recommend that Inferior Court levy a tax sufficient to create $500 for the purpose of the Poor School fund, to educate 412 children.
Regret that pauperism is on increase in this county. Request Legislature to pass a law authorizing the Inferior Court to purchase a suitable farm where paupers may be sent to earn a portion of their support.
Request Legislature representatives to alter the present Tax Law to levy ad valorem tax. The present Tax Law is unequal and unfair to merchants and citizens who live within the incorporated towns.
