MACON, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1800.
Gen. Horace Capron.
The distinguished Commissioner of Agricul
ture, at Washington, was among our visitors
yesterday. Gen. 0. is a man who would be
classed among the “elegant” in person and
manners—Blight in build, a little under average
height, with a large head, finely poised, and
surmounted by wavy hriir well frosted by our
busy old Father Time. He is an enthusiast in
the great concerns of his office and the vast in
terests of agriculture.
In the talk which followed, Gen. Capron in
sisted upon the necessity of diversifying South
ern agriculture—of « timdrj abandonment by
the Southern people of the plan of putting all
eggs in the cotton basket. True, he said, it is
impossible while cotton bears its present high
price, to attack the cotton mania with much
success; but your people ought to feel that tho
present condition is exceptional. You cannot
reasonably expect it to continue long. You are
getting now for a little more than half a crop,
sixty-four millions more money than you real
ized for the great crop of 1859. This high price
is contingent only on short supplies, which are
•onstantly increasing both in tho East and the
West. The British are pushing cotton culture
in the East Indias with an intelligence and an
application of labor and outlay which must in
time lead to still more decisive results.
You, down here, are concentrating all your
energies on cotton culture. Both of you will
soon produce a surplus. An addition of half a
a million bales will reduce prices five or six
cents. Practically, the more you swell the crop
the less you get for it; and every suggestion of
sound economy warns you to diversify your
products. Your country is admirably adapted
to the cereals—the grasses—fruits, and particu
larly grapes. Turn your attention, in part, to
these, before over-production has reduced your
cotton to too low a price.
With plenty of grass and plenty of stock come
themeans of recuperating your lands and all
the needed facilities of high culture, which will
produce three bales of cotton to the acre, and
therefore enable you to sell tho crop at a lower
price and still reap a handsome profit
Gen. Capron, we are glad to say, was pleased
with Georgia—with the Fair and the people.
He said a very largo share of the attention of
his department would be devoted to the South,
and he was anxious to make it useful to the
people our section.
gome of tlio I.cssons.
Some of the lessons of the Exhibition are very
obvious, it has been a grand one in the amount
and variety of the exhibits and the public at
tendance. In both these important particulars
it was far in advance of the anticipations of this
print. That the exhibition was not ready on
the day appointed, is a remark that we have no
doubt will bo made bfall its successors down to
the end of time. X-good part of the unreadi
ness, in this case, was due to railway blocks and
interruptions in great linos of transit. Every
merchant in town was behind in his consign
ments of goods, and since it is the .universal
fashion of exhibitors to calculate time closely so
to incur as little expense as may bo in mak
ing an exposition of their wares, the effect upon
them may be imagined. An interruption in the
course of transit is fatal to all timely arrange
ment of the goods. But as wo remarked a few
days ago, no such exhibition was ever ready to
the day or is ever likely to be.
The experience, however, of the present Fair
suggests a few patent lessons which should be
laid to heart.
1. It was too late in the season. The weather
too cold and inclement, and the exposure of
ladies and children to November blasts and
rains might well be avoided. The Fair should
be assigned to some period in the latter part of
2. AnExecutive Committee of thirty, scattered
all over the State and meeting once in two
months, is a very inefficient Board of Manage
ment, necessarily. Ten active men, with the
officers of the Society and a heavy majority
of them residing at the place of exposition, as
the case in Alabama, wonld do much better.
3. Too much of compactness and convenience
sacrificed to a mile race track. If any such
track is made it should be a mere addendum to
the regular fair grounds, and not come in to
separate the exhibits and necessitate such tedi
ous rambles to reach them. If any track is in
troduced into the grounds it should be a small
The People at the Fair.
Every visitor has been struck with admiration
at the appearance of the popular throng at the
State Fair. Col. Knox, who, as a private citizen,
and as President for some years past of the
State, and a county agricultural society in Penn
sylvania, is very familiar with such gatherings,
says he never saw oso to compare with it in
point of intelligence, order, sobriety, good man
ners, and the splendid physique of the people,
women and men.
CoL Forney and others of our Northern visit
ors made substantially the same admissions.
Solon Robinson, of the New York Tribune, who
has been in attendance upon Fairs for a life
time, says the appearance of such a concourse,
so well and richly dressed, in so short a time
after a ruinous war, is the most wonderful illus
tration of the recuperative energy of a people ho
ever saw. He could never have believed if he
had not seen it. When we asked him how they
compared with similar gatherings in other parts
of the country, his terse reply was, “ As well as
For our own part, we have taken a pride and
satisfaction in the oppearance and demeanor of
tho people—the grace and loveliness of the wo
men and the substantial and dignified demeanor
of the men of Georgia and Eastern Alabama,
that we can hardly express.
4. There should be no side-show charges un
der the patronage of the Society, but the peo
ple should be admitted to all that the Society
has to exhibit at one charge and that as light an
5. Tho grounds and buildings being laid out
and prepared, should then bo carefully plotted,
allowing an appropriate share to each class of
exhibits according to the number of entries,
and exercising a sound judgment and taste in
the order in which the different classes are ar
ranged, both in the buildings and on the grounds.
Each of these allotted divisions and classifica
tions should be in charge of a special commit
tee, or a particular momber of the Executive
Committee, who should be constaptly on the
ground to supervise the reception of good3, and
assist and counsel with exhibitors.
6. It is evident that the President of the So
ciety or a duly authorized committee should re
ceive all invited guests on their arrival, and
provide them with proper entertainment.
7. The arrangements for transportation to the
Fair Grounds should be better ordered, and
more comprehensive than our's have been. If
the present Fair Buildings and Grounds become
the property of ‘the Society, they must be
reached by a double-track street railway.
We set down these ideas loosely as they oc
cur to us, for the benefit of future State Agri
cultural Exhibitions, wherever they may be
held. This one.has shown what may be done.
It has been a great success'in. spite of inexpe
rience and bad weather, Tjhe next one, we
hope, will display a large improvement.
Prof. Henry of the Smithsonian In
Everybody who has approached this venera
ble gentleman, is equally charmed with the sim
plicity of his manners and the wonderful amount

and his mind is a vast storehouse of well ar
ranged and well digested knowledge. He ap

sense of the term. It has never been our good
fortune to meet with his equal. He has .hun

enjoyment of fine health and spirits, and is well

Coi. T. P. Knox, of Pennsylvania.
We had a very pleasant call from this gentle^
man yesterday, a distinguished Pennsylvanian
but as we loarned from him, a native Georgian.
He spent the first twelve years of his life in
Savannah, where his father, also a native Geor
gian, was engaged in business. Col. Knox is a
man of fine personal appearance and highly
pleasing address—a genial, frank and intelli
gent gentleman. He wa3 much gratified with
affairs in Georgia, and said that but for his extra
ordinarily pleasant belongings in the old Key
Stone State, he-would take up his abode here.
He liked the climate and he liked the people.
He thought immigration from the Northern
States would be large, and that several of his
fellow-excursionists to the Georgia State Fair
would become property holders and residents of
The writer took occasion of the Thansgiving
Holiday, to walk over the Fair building and
grounds.. Whatever opinions may bo expressed
to the contrary, the exhibition itself is magnifi
cent. It far exceeds in mngnitudo the antici
pations of the Telegraph. Tho whole of that
immense building—the Laboratory—is filled
with trophies of art and ingenuity, and the up
per floor—a hall between three and four hun
dred feet in length, is crowded with interesting
objects. Splendid pianos, costly furniture,
beautiful pictures, plate, jewelry, embroideries,
cloths, clothing for ladies and gentlemen, books,
carpeting, boots and shoes, crockery, harness,
plants, fruits, confectioneries, preserves, and
many hundred articles of household and per
sonal adornment and utility are here in endless
Below in the first story tho show in machine
ry and agricultural implements is literally
grand, and fills the whole space. Outside are
horse powers, cotton presses, ploughs, wagons,
carriages, Btock and fowls, besides a great many
outside shows of all lands.
The sight at the amphitheatre or hippodrome
was literally magnificent. That immense circle
built to accommodate ten thousand people was
orowded—not a foots’ space was lost. It was
living bank of human flowers—brilliant'with all
hues and radiant with Georgia loveliness. The
hippodrome contained eight or ten thousand.
The grounds outside were thronged. The
Laboratory building was literally a press above
and below, and "Huff’s Rink, outside "and inside,
was a sea of life. The whole represented an
assemblage of fifteen to twenty thousand people
and constituted one of the most brilliant scenes
wo ever beheld.
Laying of tlie “Corner Slone” of St.
George’s Church, Griffin, Ga.
On Monday, the 18th instant, Bishop Beck
with notified tho rector of St. George's Church,
that he intended to visit Griffin on tho 13th and
14th. It was decided immediately to call on
the Bishop to lay the Comer Stone of St.
George’s Church,"although there would not be
time to call together any of the Clergy from
different parts of tho Diocese. Tho Bishop was
detained in Newman by the necessities of the
work in that new field, nntil the morning of the
13th, and did not reaoh Griffin until 14 o’clock
p. in All preparations and arrangements be
ing completed on Saturday, it was thought
proper to have the sacred service performed on
Sunday. Therefore, at 3 o'clock on that day,
the congregation assembled at St. George’s
Chapel, and from thence marched in procession
headed by the members of the fraternity of
Odd Fellows, who, from their own rooiq joined
their friends and fellow-citizen3 in giving ex
pression to the sentiment of the day. Arriving
near the ground, the Bishop and Rector, fol
lowed by the wardens, vestiymen, and building
committee, advanced between open ranks to
ward the north-east comer of the chancel of the
now edifice, saying the psalm appointed in the
service for laying thtf “Cornerstone.” A list
of documents deposited, was read by the Ju
nior Warden, Capt. John M. Hill.
Then tho voice of the Bishop, rising alone
amid tho assembled throng, (in nnmber four or
five hundred,) fell full upon every ear like the
blast of a trumpet. The service ended, the
Bishop commenced a short address, which, by
a kind of elective affinity,, seemed to gather into
itself only the thoughts most appropriate at the
moment; and these were woven into graceful
and majestic periods that went to the heart of
the listeners. The members of the Society
above named standing immediately in front of
tho Bishop, he reminded them that the very
principle which constitutes the life and contin
uity of Odd Fellowship and Masonry—(many of
the Masons being present, .though not in rega
lia)—viz : the transmission of office in an un
broken line from the fonndation of each Order,
the latter receding farinto the past, is the iden
tical principle that constitutes tho life and con
tinuity of tho visible Church from her founda
tion by tho Apostles to the present day; a suc
cession of Bishops being just as essential to tho
life and continuity of the visible Cbnrch as is a
succession of Grand Masters to the life and con
tinuity of the Order of Masons, or of the Order
of Odd Fellows. Both of these Orders thus sub
sisting by the force of undeviating succession
in office, it is not difficnlt to comprehend how
the visible Chnrch also maintains her life and
continuity by the force of the same perpetuating
The closing hymn, from the “ Hymns An
cient and Modern,"’ to bo used at the laying of
the “ Corner Stone," in the notes of “ Old Hun
dred,” was sung by the Choir of young ladies,
under the direction of Prof. Henry Schoeller,
in which tho audience heartily united; and was
one of the interesting and imposing features of
It is proper to add that the new edifice is cru
ciform, 72 feet in length, and 57 feet in width:
the entire wall being built of granite.
In tho morning the Bishop had preached at
St. George’s Chapel, and confirmed three per
sons.' His sermon on the words, “Almost thou
persnadest me t4.be a Christian,” in thought,
style and delivery, we have no hesitation in say
ing, may bo ranked among the highest produc
tions of pulpit oratory.—tfriffin Star.

Since tho foregoing was put in type we have

the strongest paper in the State, if not in the
Southern Atlantic States. There are other com

to the usefulness of the press. The idea of
having two or three papers in onr small towns

not sufficient for one.

The committee appointed by this society to
report on_the subject of Industrial Schools, re
spectfully *qljnut the following:
The necessity of making provision for an
education diff*fen§f ronyffiat fdbished by the
colleges, which adhere to*.the'- traditional cur
riculum, is obvious to the most casual observer.
The programmes of education in future are to
differ from those of the past, by reason Of'the
imperative demand for more science. The ex
tension of the boundaries of knowledge by the
recent developments of the sciences, and the
growth of the arts, with advancing civilization,
demonstrate the necessity for more than one
typo of enlture. That scientific education is of
the first -importance to modem civilization is
acknowledged in the establishment of the vari
ous special schools designed to combine practi
cal knowledge with theoretical instruction. In
France we find the historical Imperial Polytech
nic School, the School of Roads and Bridges,
the National Schools of Arts and Trades, the
Sobool of Forestry and Agriculture, the Central-
School of Arts and Manufactures, all celebrated
for their distinguished graduates as men of foi-
fcuiie, eugmeefs .
• Germany is celebrated for its numerous real-
schools, especially designed for scientific train
ing for civiUife, for its artisan schools and Pol
ytechnic Insratntes. In Prussia, there are twen
ty-six Indnstrial Colleges, while'Bavaria has an
equal number of artisan or trade schools. Be
sides these, there are among tho most celebra
ted Scientific Institutes the Royal Trade Insti
tute of Berlin, the Royal Polytechnic School at
Dresden and the celebrated Mining Academy
at Frieburg, while the Polytechnic Institute, of
Vienna, commands the attendance of over six
teen hundred students. The London exhibi
tion of 1851 showed Great Britain the danger
of its occupying a secondary scientific industrial
position, and since then Scientific Institutes
have multiplied, having especial reference to
modem applied science.
The material prosperity of many European
countries is traceable strictly to the character of
tho scientific instruction given in the schools
designed for special training. France holds the
foremost place among the enlightened nations
in the perfection of her manufactured articles,
in her architecture and in the construction of
her railroads, and all this excellence is attribu
ted to her scientific instructions.
“Wherever,” says Dr. Playfair in his report
on the English exhibition, “science or art was
involved, we saw, as an inevitable law, that the
nation which most cultivated them was in the
ascendant.” The experience of France and
Prussia, demonstrates that other thing3 being
equal, their prosperity has been in proportion
to the efficiency of their sehools-for special
Your committee would further direct the at
tention of the Society to tho efforts made in
the United States to supply this demand for
practical scientific education. On July 2d,
1862, the Congress of. the United States passed
an act granting to each State 30,000 acres of
land for each Senator and Representative in
Congress, with the provision that the funds
arising therefrom should be applied to the main
tenance of at least one college, where the leading
object should be “to teach.such branches of
learning as are related to agriculture and the
mechanic arts.” The funds arising from this
donation by the general Government, largely
aided by private liberality, have constituted the
basis of the agricultural and mechanical col
leges now existing in every Stato of the Union,
with the exception of the States of the South.
Besides-these, there had been previously fonnd-
od, by the liberality of private citizens of the
Northern States, the Rennsalaer Polytechnic
Institute at Troy, the Sheffield Scientific School
of Yale, the Lawrence Scientific School of Har
vard, and other distinguished institutes devoted
to applied science.
This brief review of what ha3 been done else
where to. supply this deficiency in the old sys
tem of education demonstrates, that for a new
form of educational culture there exists a uni
versal demand in all civilized countries; and
plainly shows that to keep abreast of this age
of progress Georgia must not be idle. .Never
before in our history was the necessity so’ groat
of providing this special and practical scien
tific education for the risiDg generation. Our
future prosperity imperatively demands it—
Your committee wish carefully to avoid even
the appearance of advocating a system of educa
tion antagonistic to that now so well provided
for in our colleges and universities. The sys
tem of technical training schools is not antago
nistic to the liberal education already provided
for, but only supplementary thereto. It aims
to supply a want which no classified college can
supply. The numbers of young meu who
pqrsne a classical course is of necessity
limited, and should be so. Now, not more than
one young man in sixty, secures a collegiate
education. The industrial and technical educa
tion is needed for that numerous class wboso
tastes or whose limited means, compel them to
’ a different course; for this class who make
our artisans, onr merchants, onr mechanics and
The advance in science, the improvement in,
and the general introduction of machinery, have
rendered, in the arts, education the equivalent
of years of practice. The young m.chanic,
educated to a knowledge of machinery, may do
far more and better work with a limited experi
ence, than could probably be done by handi
craft with the added experience of years.
In agriculture we are in a transition state.
Steam has transformed all the departments of
the arts and manufactures, and is now proposed
to enter upon the field of agriculture. In this
department the limit of human progress has not
yet been reached. In fact, scientific agricul
ture is yet in its infancy, and an intelligent co
operation of the scientific agriculturist and the
skillful enquirer may yet. produce a new era in
Looking to the prospective improvements in
agriculture and in the arts and manufactures,
our young men have need to be educated to be
familiar practically and theoretically with the
agents of modern prograss. The present gene
ration must know more than the preceding.
To meet these demands the State of Georgia
needs a Comprehensive Polytechnic Institute,
adapted to practical education, as well as to the
higher walks of science, embracing schools of
Applied Mathematics, Practical Mechanics, Ar
chitecture and Engineering, Mining and Me
tallurgy, Chemistry applied to the Arts, Mine
ralogy and Geology, Physical Geography,
Botany, Physiology and Higiene, Commerce
and Agriculture in all its departments.
In connection with the school of agriculture,
besides an experimental farm, there should be
a museum of agricultural products, where
should be exhibited seeds, fruits, woods, &c.,
and specimens of all the various products of
the soil of the South; also a museum of agri
cultural implements, exhibiting all modern im
provements of value, and all machines adapted
to facilitate labor. -
By establishing suoh an institute, the wealth
of the State would be greatly increased. Be
sides the power resulting from the increased in
tellectual wealth added to the State, its gradu
ates would become centres of influence for dis
criminating practical scientific knowledge, and
in a few years this influence would be mani
fested in the increased production of tho soil.
An increase of one peck per acre in the com
crop of Georgia would be equal in value to
$250,000 each year.
An addition of one pound in a hundred to the
crop of cotton would give an annual increase
to the wealth of the State of about $200,000.
"What amount would represent the increased
wealth added to Georgia by a judicious develop
ment of her mineral resources, and by the wide
dissemination of knowledge regarding her mate

The question then rises, bow can an institute
so important and so generally needed, as sup
plementary to our colleges, be established?
The first thing to be done is to secure the
funds to furnish it with as complete illustrative
apparatus, and with as valuable laboratories,
and as well filled museums, as are found in any
institution in America; and then to secure the
ablest and best fitted men, either here or in
