Merchants, though offering gc-.d bar
gains, are not overran with easterners.
The legal advertising for Jefferson
county will appear in the New* If Farm
er next week, and regularly thereafter,
v It will be found in no other paper.
The merchants of Louisville evinee a
lively spirit of enterprise as will be seen
by reference to our advertising columns.
Few towns in this State of a similar pop
ulation, can show the same spirit of on.
i) Our town had the pleasure of a visit
last week from the Rev. Dr. Robert Ir
vine, who preached a aeries of sermons
in the Baptist Ghnreh. The Dr. is one
of the ablest Presbyterian ministers in
the Sonth. We hope Louisville will be
honored with many visits from him. The
congregation on last Sabbath was very
large, a great many having to remain out
A couple of gentloman left town the
other morning and caught 113 perck with
hooks and lines, and returned to town
before 12 o’clock; and in the afternoon
a party of young ladies and gentlemen
went out and one of the young ladies
caught a black fish that measured two
*eet and a half, and weighed ten pounds.
Vc understand she “named her hook,”
bioh doubtless accounts for this extra
ordinary piece of luck.
:) Tho Sabbath Sehool of this plaoe had
a union Pie-Nic on Tuesday last, hot
business prevented our attendance, whish
we regret exceedingly, though we ere
fearful that the weather prevented from
long enjoying themselves, as there wts
a pretty heavy nun fell about twelve
o’clock. Let us try and have it over,
in the way of a fishing party at Judge
Walker’s Mill. What say the young
people to this 7
We learn that some of our farmers are
losing their bands. Nine left one plan
tation last week without any cause what
ever, unless it was that they were tired
of work. The best remedy we knew of
to prevent thia trouble is, to advertise
every one who has signed a contract
and left his employers, thus preventing
any one else from giving him employ
ment. We say posh the law on these
scoundrels and make them return to their
. rightful employers and fulfil their eon
MASK 70UB CLOTHING!
Not with a stencil plate, for that will
smear and blot, but with one of those in
imitable machines, the “Acme Linen
Marker," for sale by Mr. H. W. J. Ham
of our town, who is the General. Agent
for the State of Georgia. For the pur
pose to which it is adapted, it ie certain
ly without a rival. He has for sale also,
the "Acme Card Printer,” just the thing
business 'men need. He wishes to em

him for circulars and terms- Cull and

Louisville, May 5, 18T1.—It.
Next week the Jeffeteon Superior
Court will be in session, and we hope to
meet a great many citizenafrom the sur
.jrounding country. We heir oi but llt
, lie business on the docket, however. It
is thought by some, that Court will not
last more than three or four days. There
is not a single criminal ease on the dock
et this term.
Throughout tho county are all in very
good condition, and especially to, when
we consider that we have so much
rain during the Spring. \
In our agricultural departing will be
found regularly contributions from resi
dent planters, able Southern eontribu
tora, and selections from the Oest cur
rent agricultural magasines and paper*-
We eonsider this department M one of
the greatest importunes, and in its the
attention of our planters to»J Gontri\
butions will gladly be received. 1
’ i Encouraging.
The cordiality with Which the Nsws
& Fabmcb has been reeeived, thus far,
bae been beyond our most sanguine ex
pectations. Every body seems to greet
us with joy, end we have as yet to bear
of the first man who says be* is too poor
to take the Nxws Sc Farmer. We
don't believe that man lives in Jefferson
county; if be does, let him come forward
and make known the fact, and wo will
make him a present of a year's subscrip
tion to the paper. We Waut every man
in the eoonty to become a subscriber to
the New* If Farmer.
» The Crops-
We believe some of our farmers are a
little behind with their cotton, on ac
count of so much wet weather. Corn, we
learn, is up pretty well ail over the coun
ty and looking well. We are glad to
learn there has been a great deal more
planted this season than last.
We ars highly flattered at the favora
ble auspices attending the commence
ment of the Nbws Sc Farmbr. We
start with a good list of subscribers and a
handsome advertising patronage. Au
gusta, appreciating the advantage, of a
first class newspaper in this section, has
contributed largely to our support, and
makes our first edition radiant with invi
tations for "business” to that noble old
city. Savanuah, too,[will doubtless soon
represent bekself: Our people must re
member that those who do the best busi
ness, advertise liberally, aad when they
wish to makt purchases, should always
oonsult the columns of the Newt If Farm
er, as a directory.
Visit to Jefferson County.
It was our pleasure receutly to visit
that famous old county, Jefferson, aud
that most beautiful and retired village,
Louisville. Louisville is situated two
and a half miles from Bartow, ou the
Central Railroad, and is reached by
one of the most pleasant and beau
tiful drives it was ever our fortune
to experience. The face of the country
from Bartow to Louisville is nearly e von—
occasionally a little undulating, but tho’
you cross the Ogeechee river over half a
doxeu bridges and as many embank
ments, yet the road is free from steep
hills, and the frightful red mud which
threatens to “Stick” travelers in the ad
jacent counties lying above Jefferson.
Bartow of itself is quite a village, sup
port* a good school and one of the larg
est country or [village stores, that ever
fell beneath our observation. The store
is owned in part by the affable and ac
commodating Mr. M. A. Evans, who is
kind enough to keep conveyances for
passengers who Ml to connect with the
regular hack line, to reach Louisville.
Bartow is finely located, and being
the depot for a vast section of the sur
rounding country will undoubtedly be a
place of much importance at some future
Louisville is without doubt one of the
quietest, prettiest towns we ever saw.
The buildings ire mostly, perhaps all,
except eome public buildings, construct-,
ed of wood, and are neatly painted; the
fencing too, and ornamental grounds of
the town are also kept neatly painted,
giving the town aa attraction and taste
ful aspect. , T t.
Better society than that of Jefferson
county cannot be found in the State.
The people, sg a rule, are high-minded,
public spirited, educated and refined,
and before the war, were wealthy. Sev
eral excellent sclpols in the county are
at this time very liberally patronized,
among which we may mention that of
the academy at Louisville, Way’s Church,
'Bethany, and Bartow.
Some of the fiiest farming lands in
the State, lie in Jefferson county, those
north and west of Loaitville, near the
river, being most celebrated.
A little more ‘‘jution to agriculture,
the organization, Mubs and societies in
tbeoounty would accomplish much good.
We regret that otr time was so limit
ed that we were at Able to visit the va
rious sections of tb* county and draw
out many features red facts that would
be ofhitrrihsttft our’readers. We were
leave after so short a stay, and
li%s hopeful of another opportunity to
mingle with the goad people of Jeffer
H. F. Russell Sc Cos., will make a
change in their business soon; as will be
seen in the advertisement. To effect

did stock,, before that time they will
sell for cost or less. They meat what
