Auraria.- A village with the name has sprung up within the last twelve months, the woods of the Georgia gold region. It is situated on the ridge dividing the waters of the Chestatee and Etoah Rivers in the county of Lumpkin, formerly the county of Cherokee. That the Georgians should endeavor to blot out of their remembrance the very name of CHEROKEE, is not at all wonderful, for it must haunt them, as the ghost of Banquoerst (sic) haunted the guilty Macbeth; but they can no more remove the stain of Cherokee oppression than they could extinguish the recollections of the Yazoo affair, by burning up the records. The taste however which selected the name of Lumpkin, to designate the county, in place of Cherokee, cannot be sufficiently admired. What a delightful euphony in the sound of Lumpkin!-but we think it would be an improvement to call it 'Tony Lumpkin County'- in as much as we regard the hopeful son of Madam Hardcastle as a much more respectable character than the graceless individual to whom the name maybe supposed to refer.
Auraria too!-so very descriptive, and withal so very euphonious as to consist entirely of vowels and liquids, without the interruption of a single consonant to break the continuity of sound! Yet here, also, our evil genius leads us to suggest an emendation. Auraria is a title that alludes only to the produce which that a region yields. A more appropriate name should indicate the title by which it was acquired. Let it therefore be called Infernia-Furtaria-Raptoria-Latronia, or any other significant appellation by which the mode of its acquisition may be directly carried down to posterity. - New York Spectator.
