The Entire Issue ot the Road's Bonds
§aid to Have Been Sold.
Nkw York, Dec. 31. —The Marietta and
North Georgia Railway Company, through
its General Agent. George R. Eager, per
fected the sale to-day of its entire issue of
Consolidated first mortgage bonds. Some
lew of the bonds had l>een previously sold,
nut the bargain of to-day was for 33,51X1,000,
which covers every bond authorized undor
the mortgage. This is one of the largest
transactions predicated upon a Southern
enterprise that has been effected in Wail
Street for many a day, and demonstrates
with what increasing favor Southern secu
rities have come to lie regarded in the New
York money market.
WHO BOUGHT THEM.
A million dollars of the bonds
were sold to a representative of lon
4kn capitalists. The remaining $8,300,000
Worth were sold to James U. Jack
son, a bond and stock broker of Augusta,
Ga. Mr Jackson’s purchase was for himself
and associates who are composed of New
York and Southern financiers. His man
agement of the deal even in the atmosphere
of Wall street, where large monetary trails
actions are common is regarded as an ad
mirable negotiation, and secures to him the
congratulations of all who are acquainted
with the deal. The new' South owes much
of her improved credit and rapid develop
ment to the enterprising spirit, and in
domitable energy of iter best young men,
and Mr. Jackson is a worthy representative
of that class.
TO BK COMPLETED RAPIDLY.
The Marietta and North Georgia railroad
w ill now tie pushed to completion as rapidly
as ready money and a lull construction
force can accomplish that end. The narrow
gauge of the recent line between Marietta,
Ga , and Murphy, N. <’., will at once be
made standard, and the extension north
ward from Mupphj , N. C., to Knoxville,
Tenn.. and also southward from Marietta to
Atlanta. Ga , wdll lie built with all possible
Mr. Eager says he confidently expects to
have the entire line finished and amply
eqilippi'd in less than eighteen months.
This road w ill open up one of the richest
mineral regions, some of the most valuable
coal fields and by far the most inexhausti
ble and varied marble beds of the whole
Southern territory, and will constitute the
shortest possible line between Knoxville,
Tenn., and Atlanta, Ga., thereby establish
ing quicker and more intimate connection
between the West and the South.

was successful, though not as much so as
might have been. The company is a strong

This week will open a full list of attrac
tions. To-morrow night Robert Downing
will appear as “Spartaeus” in the Glndie
tor. Mr. Downing returns to Savannah
this year, supported by even a better com
pany than the one seen with him last year,
it comprises several well known legitimate
actors, and is said to be, with perhaps one
exception, the strongest, company support
ing any legitimate star in this country.
Tlie east for the Gladiator to-morrow night
will he as follows:
ROBERT DOWNING as Spartaeus,
William Harris as Fbasarius.
Harry Meredith us t'r.msus.
Samuel C. Dußois as Bracchiua.
Charles Ncvins as Lentil las,

Dinriie as the Child Spartaeus.
laiuia Hendricks as the .Fighting Gaul.
On Tuesday night Mr. Downing will be
seen here for the first time in Julius Caesar,
supported by the full strength of the Gladia
tor Company. Mr. Downing will play Marc
Antony, William Harris, Cassius, and Harry
Katie Putnam in “Erma, the Elf.”
Wednesday and Thursday nights Katie
Putnam will appear in “Erma, the Elf.”
It is seven years since Miss Putnam last
played before a Savannah audience, but she
is still the same Katie now that she was
then, and she sings and dances just the
same. The play of “Erma” is one pecu
liarly adapted to her capabilities, and sli?
gives to the character ot a vivacious girl
an air of freshness and sp rit, that is capti
vating. The story is rather intricate, con
taining an original plot, which in it self is a
refreshing fact. The dialogue is iu many
parts very bright, and not unfrequently
very clever. Miss Putnam has been a great
favorite in Savannah. She will hardly fail
to receive an enthusiastic reception.

takes away the “broken reed” on which he
leaned for support.
One well stricken in years has sunk into the
tomb. One who has seen generations rise and
fall, has dosed her eyes on the nothingness of
earth. One whose heart was kindly disposed
toward suffering humanity, has departed from
her midst of earthly usefulness; one who had
an outstretched hand for the sorrowful now
sleeps the sleep which know s no waking.
Whereas. By an inscrutable decree of Irovi
dence, our .Society's late friend and patron,
MRS. (i. W. J. DeRENNE,
has departed this life, and thereby closed her
earthly career of usefulness and bpnevolence,
and . . ,
Whereas, By the kind and friendly acts during
her life, shown our Society, by which her mem
ory will lie lastingly perpetuated by our mem
bers; be it therefore
Re.so/ivd, That we sincerely lament the loss
of our fi iend and patron; That we tender our
sincere sympathy and condolence to the be
reaved family of the deceased.
That a page on our minute book be devoted to
the memory of our departed friend, and that a
copy of this preamble and resolutions be trans
mitted to the family.

“A precious one” from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.
God in His wisdom has recalled,
The boon His love had given;
And though the Ixxly moulders here,
The soul is safe in heaven.
Jesus, while our hearts are bleeding
O’er the s|x>ils that death has won,
We would at this solemn meeting,
Calmly say, Thy will be done.
Though east down we’re not forsaken.
Though afflicted not alone;
Thou didst give and Thou hast taken,
Blessed Lord, Thy will be done.
