Iffore Railroad Strategy—Sale of lire
Montgomery and Egranla Railroad.
We find the following in the Montgomery
Advertiser, of Thursday:
Mohtoomeby and EutaulaBoad.—At the an
nual meeting of the stockholders of the, *>bove
named road, held at noon yesterday in this city,
the stock owned by Enfania, Union Springs and
Montgomery was represented respectively by
tbc Mayors of the cities .named and other gen
tlemen, whose names we have not on hand.
The rest of the stock was largely represented
by delegates from the country all along tlie line
of the road. The chief business of the meeting
was to consider And act upon tbc contraot lately
entered into in New York by Col. Lewis Owen
for the company, and Maseru. Opdyke A Hazel-
—a «tlwr r‘
New York, the Ium ot which -were substan
tially as follows:
1. The Company assigns to Messrs. Opdyke
& Co., parties of the second part, all the assets
and a majority of the stock of the road (abont
$5T>0,000 worth) without reserve.
" Messrs. Opdyke & Co. agree to furnish
$680,000 .in cash, which snm ic is thought will
l>a amply sufficient to pay off all outstanding
liabilities and complete tlie road to Enfanla.
On motion of Captain Fowler, ably seconded
and supported by J. W. Ik Daniel, and one of
the Directors, this contraot was unanimously
Although not stated in so many words in the
above article, it is understood that the sale is
v-irtnally to the Macon and Brunswiek Railroad
'—Mr. Opdyke being one of the largest New
York stockholders In that road, and Mr. Hazio-
nursi its President. If we ere not mistaken,
the road from Montgomery to Eulanla is well on
the way to completion, there being only nine
teen miles to finish. With a western connec
tion via Montgomery and the North and South
Boad, direct to Louisville, much of the South
western Georgia provision business non done
over the Western and Atlantic and Macon and
Western Boads, will very possibly be diverted
to the former route—provided, of coons, the
Maoon and Brunswick Boad secures a connec
tion from Eufanla with some point on that road.
A friend at our elbow suggest? Hawkinsville, as
there was a charter—with State aid—granted at
the last session of the Legislature for «> road
from Hawkinsville to Ectfanla.

ho instruction of ne
groes! makes a very eulogistic report bn the pro- j
grass of the pupils. They r.iy:
At every step of the examination we werfe im
pressed with the fallacy of the popular idea
(wnich, in common with thousands of others,
majority of the undersigned have heretofore
entertained) that the members of the African
race are not capable of a high grade of intelleo-
toal culture. The rigid tests to which the classes
in Algebra and Geometry, and in Latin and
Greek'were subjected, unequivocally demon
strated that under judicious training, and with
persevering study, there are many members of
the African raoe who can attain a high grade of
intellectual culture. They proved that they can
master intricate problems in mathematics, and
fully comprehend the construction of difficult
passages in the classics.
Many of the pupils exhibited a degree of
mental culture which; considering the length of
time their minds have been in training, would
do credit to members of any race.
The chairman of this committee was ex-Gov.
Brown and Messrs. W. A. Hemphill, Wn. L.
Scruggs and J. I. Whittaker were among its
We are wedded to no particular theory about
Africa mis. We would not give the value of a
brass button to prove to the satisfaction of
mankind that the negro is at least twenty de
scants nearer that Simian origin to which D“-
win eventually traces the entire human t^ce.
Bat this much may well be said: The Atlanta
University is by no means the first attempt
which has been made on this planet to indoc
trinate the African in philosophy and letters.
On the contrary, if we accept the Mosaic record
or choose the almost illimitable chronology of
the Egyptians, that experiment baa been prose
cuted with more or less diligence many thou

withdrawing them from the cotton field and the

We dip the following from it Washington
letter published- in the Baltimore Gazette, of
Some time ago J. S. Bigby, member of Con
gress from Georgia, had one Samnel Hast ap
pointed Collector of the Second Georgia Bev-
enne District From information subsequently
received at the Revenue Bureau, it was suspect
ed Hunt was not all right, end upon investiga
tion it turns out that he was indicted some time
ago, In Tennessee, for illicit distilling. Inquiry
was made of Senator Brownlow, who replied
that Hunt was his (Brownlow’s) nephew, “but,”
said the Senator, “I have no confidence in him.
He was, to all intents and purposes, guilty of
the charges preferred against him Jn this State,
and I was greatly surprised at learning-of his
appointment os Collector.”
The correspondent adds, that Hnnt has not
yet filed his bond and will not be appointed.
The question now comes np: What moved Big
by to go outside of Georgia to make snoh an
appointment ? Was there no material better
than this in the district ? And if .-not, what fact
does it illustrate ? We maintain, though, that
it will be hard lines for Hunt to miss his ap
pointment on such trivial grounds as those al
leged. Up where he lives, the loil don't do
mnch else but manufacture illicit whisky and
whip Southern Methodist preachers.

sustained, with interest. Mr. Oulber.on and

ed, and the damages otherwise sustained, and
found that they amounted to the aboVJ amount,
viz: $10,848,06, including interest. r«*» ihii

ron, of course, looks for a very enthnsiastio
support from Charles Sumner and his friends,
and whatever he lacks there Morton and Butler
will make up. Cameron will fly the banner of
political and financial integrity- ana my, re
form, no trickery and can cussing to politii
no bribery to elections. He is now haring these
sterling pri neiplea emblazoned to red ink on his
shirt tail, showing that they are principally for
the benefit of other people.
Changes rs HasvaudUstveusity.—The World
of Tuesday Bays that a “new departure” has
been taken by Harvard University. Increased
prominence is hereafter to be given to scien
tific studies; to certain departments women are
to be admitted to an equality with men; new
buildings arc to be erected, and tuition in to be
PublioDetaultees.—Grant was kind enough,
says the World, to inform a Herald correspon
dent at Long Branch that in December next he
should recommend the “taking off” of “forty
more millions of taxes.” This is ccns'dorably
less than half the amount of the taxes which
havo “been taken off” by the defalcations of
government officials since 'Grant came into
power. The amonnt is openly stated at Wash
ington to reach the snm of at least “one hun
dred millions of dollars.”

THE WIKSHIP COTTON GIN.
Ahead of All Competition.
AWARDED TWO FIRST PREMIUMS AT STATE
FAIRS IN 1870.
A T a teat of nine of the leading Gins of this
county, exhibited at the Ootton States Me
chanics’ and Agricultural Fair Association, held to
Augusta, to 1870, the trial resisted as follows:
Winn’s Gin ...45 saws. 135 13:30 m
OarverGin..;;;.....‘.'...:.50saws. ISO 12:20m
Pratt Gin 45 saws. 135 12:00 m
Massey's Griswold Gin... .45 saws. 135 10:30 m
Niabett A Goodrich Gin. ..45 saws. 135 11:15 m
Morris Gin..; 50 saws. 150 12:30 m
Gullett'a Steel-Brush Gin. .00 saws. -180 10:05 m
The Winship Gin. > 50 mwa 150 6:50 m
Hall’s Gin ana Feeder 50 saws. 160 8.40 m
Ths Gins were ail run by a steam engine, and at
high speed. The Oommittee on Machinery had the
cotton weighed np for each Gin according to size,
all out of the same ootton, three pounds for each
saw. These Gins are all made alike, tor service and
durability—pot up to good style in a substantial
and workmanlike manner,under the personal super
vision of Mr. JOHN WINSHIP, .a first-class ma
chinist of more than twenty years’ practical experi
ence—giving his exclusive attention to the manu
facture and improvement of Cotton Gina. Those
wanting Gins can find them with numbers of testi
monials as to fast work—picking seeds clean, and
leaving lint in good condition, making it sample
well. 40, 45, 60 and 60 saws kept constantly to
stock. Price, $4 per saw.
