Divers southern legis- ; Mures have protested in terms that 'would make the doughty old general ' L revolve vigorously in his grave, if he could only" hear them. Now it is reported that in Georgia, at least, sale 9f th'e stamps will be boycotted by an indignant citizenry.

These inflicted grotesque anc! painful wounds, and it was all pretty unfair. So the English high 'command promptly court-martialed the ardent artillerist on charges of playing tlic noble game of war in an unsportsman- like manner.
