THE GEORGIA KOAD.
We copy the following synopsis of pro
cce,lings of the Georgia Railroad Conven-
lioti. held iu Augusta last week from the
The fortieth annual Convention of the
stockholders ot the Georgia Railroad and
Banking Company took place on Tuesday
iu Augusta. President King, in his report
states that while the operations of tho road
for 'he past year are by no means flatter
ing. albeit they f"rnish no cause of com
plaint ou the part of those interested, fur
tin- reason that the result compares favor
ably with the exhibits made by the besi
managed railroads in the South". He states
also that the hopes of increased net profit,
as a result of the large reduction of ex-
penses about the close of the preceding
fisc I year, have not been fully realized.
The heavy losses by fire and flood, at Oco-
nee and Macon, not only tor renewal ot
bridges, but by heavy division of business,
fell mainly on this year’s business. The
heavy loss by the opening of the Xorth-
astern Koad from Athens,. has tiecn, as
was ex|iected, severely ielt. “ Strangely
nough,” says President King, “this rival
oad was advocated and sustained by your
largest stockholders, without whose assist-
mo it could not have been built. As tlu
nnpany did not contribute to this hostile
itcrprise, the stockholders have no right
to complain of a measure which they had
n« power to prevent.” Mr. King also takes
K-casion to remark that the present pros
jieetus for Southern Railroads are gloomy
The repi >rt of Colonel S. K. Johnson shows
the gross earnings of the roatl fer the fiscal
year, closing March 31st, to have been SI,
113, 12S.24, and the expenses $643,110.30,
leaving a net profit ot 8500,017.94. The
report goes on to state that the past year
has been one of great hardship upon the
railroad interest of the whole country.
Veiy few Southern roads hare been able to
••ay dividends and many roads of resi>cct-
able standing have Ix-en unable to meet
the interest on their bonded debt, and
have gone into the hands of receivers.
The Georgia Road, though its dividends
have not beeu entirely uniform, yet has
been generally able to meet the wishes of
the stockholders and relieve their pressing
The expenses are 561 per ceut. of th«
truss earnings. This jierceutage compares
favorably wiih the best managed roads in
riiec* tint ry, notwithstanding its eneum-
tram a with several unprofitable blanches.
For instance, the last annual rejiort of the
Central Railroad nukes expenses 62 per
cut. of gross earnings. The last annual

A leading Republican Journal aud sup
porter of Hayes says :
The only gratitude which the South is
likely to accord to Mr. Hayes is that lively
sense of favors to come which wilt embar
rass rather thau help him.”
We uelieve that is the rule observed in
matters of goverumefft. It might have
saiil thiit os this world is constituted peo
ple look on their rulers pretty much as
mere instruments, merely means to an
end. Under the old divine right rule it
was different. Tho men received good
government as a boon and had ailmiuis
(ration as a visitation. We have so tar re
versed that rule that new a man woo is
chosen to administer the affairs of govern
meat is regarded as an extremely favored
iierson who is graciously permitted to rule
well and who must not rule ill. In busi
ness, the employee is retained and sup
ported, not for what he has done but for
what he can do. When he becomes use
less somo body takes his place. Our rela
tion towards our rulers, State and Nation
al, divested of all sentiment, and stated,
as they practically are, are those of lively
ex|>ectatiun of good to come. Mr. Hayes
could only find this embarrassment by a
determination to do ill instead of well.
Should he take tbutcoursethe wantofcor
respondence between expectation and ac
tuality might make it embarrassing.—

Manchester, May 13.—A Buschuk dis
patch to the Guardian, dated Thursday,
says that from the depredations being
made on both sides, it is plain that the
time for action ou the Danube is close at
hand. The Russians evidently intended
to open nre qn the Turkish positions along
the line, under cover uf an overwhelming
artilery fire and attempt to cross the river
at several points simultaneously.
Notice has just been given by the mili
tary authorities here that the Russian bat
teries ou the opposite hank of the Giurge-
vo may coinmeuce tiring bn this town aud
fortress at any moment.
For the last two days the Russians have
been establishing batteries on the left
hank, from which a bombardment can ho
directed upon the forts atid town of Bus-
chuck, and the station of the Varua rail
road, which has a terminus here, and I be
lieve these batteries will open fire to-mor
row. The Turkish fortress on the Danube
lire in admirable order, and are well pre-
pared to withstand an attack.
The forward movement in Armenia is
checked for want of stores.
