On that record, and on that platform, I eland. Democratic to the very core, toler ant of the. opinions of others, devoted to the material welfare and prosperity of this section and people, the Times- Entertrise will he found battling, nt all times, for the common good of all. Everything looking to the build ing up of the trade and commeicciof the town; everything tending to de velop and improve the agricultural' interests of the country; everything calculated to encourage morality, law aud order, and to preserve peace and good will between all, will find in the new paper a consistent, constant co- adjutpr. The city department, in- chnige of (.'apt. Winter, will he a reflex of passing current events of t lie day, aud will, under his management, he de voted to the best interests of Thomas- ville. Ilis trenchant pen will find ample scope in tiie discussion mid elaboration of every present, or pro posed industry which goes to build up a town and people. No man Inis a keener perception of these wants aud agencies, and few writers have the " rare faculty of better enforcing and illustrating arguments in favor of the importance,aud the necessity,of every thing pertaining to, or which alljets, the weal of place aud people. His record as editor of. the Enterprise, bears ample testimony to bis abiflty ns well as to his fealty to Thoniasvillc aud everything atfectiug her growth and,prosperity. -■f» Thus equipped for the work laid out, the Tlmeh-Enteupihsk makes its lirst appearance this bright May »• morning.

With our ample editorial force it is within the power of the Times-En- TEnritisE to give Tliormtsvijle the best paper she has ever had. This is my ambition, and -I know I am fully seconded in it by Capt. Triplett, Mr, Burr and the whole fined that works on the paper. » This much I have said, and much more might lie said, but I leave it to he written in the col umns of the Timi:s-Kntei:i'1:isi; here after.

To Our Readers. 1 might, feel some degree of embar rassment if I stood before a strange audience for the first time, but staud 4 ing as I do, in the presence of a peo ple well known to me, and to whom I am equally as well known, I can make bold to address the readers of the Timi:s-%t';iu'iiise, feeling ihat I have an audience of friends. As this is the last time I can, with propriety, use the personal pronoun, 1 take the ' occasion as favorable for the expres sion ot some tilings that can with pro priety be said. ■ The merging ol Tliomasville’s two dailies into one, brings together w hat must be acknowledged as the two mast powerful factors for her good, ft (’apt. Triplett, who becomes senior aud managing editor, is a veteran in the service of Thomas county, Thom- asvillcaud South Georgia. For near- * ly a score of years he lias done yeo man service for his people. It can lie said of him with entire truth, that he has had but'one ambition, to push the fortunes of his town aud county. That his services have been well di- . reefed is. attested by the prosperity " that ha* come to both, aud that they been appreciated is fully demon- stralcd by the affection with which he W " '^cd. - My own duties, as city editor, call m ■ -field tbatl shall endeavor to 1 fill with whatever of ability, I may mmand, and I think 1 can refer to {Dc files of the Enterprise since it has Business Announcement. The proprietors of the Thoniasvillc Times and the Thoniasvillc Enter prise, having Seen moved thereto by the advice of the business men of Thoniasvillc and friends ot noth pa pers, have consolidated the two offices in a stock company, under the title of Times-Exterprihe Publmiiino Co. The Daily Times-Entehprise will be issued every morning; the Weekly Times every Saturday and the Week ly Enterprise every Thursday, as heretofore. In making this announcement the business manager desires to say to the public that in no sense will the pres ent arrangement have a tendency to raise prices. The prices lor advertis ing arc and will be the saint- that have governed the two papers for the past four years, as have appeared in both papers. These rates were agreed on by both papers as fair and equitable In job printing wc propose to compete with the world. Wc recognize the fact that there arc ample facilities af forded in Savannah, Macon, Atlanta and New York for doing the business of Thoniasvillc, and we propose to compete with-these points. Our prices will not he advanced because wc have no competition, aud our business men can.readily understand that, as wc want to cover the field, it is our poli cy to so run the husiuiss as to make it unnecessary for competition. De termined to make our rates in all de partments as reasonable as circum stances will permit, wc shall expect our husiijess men to give tys their, pat ronage. Recognizing the fact that, one daily paper is all that Tlioinusville needs, or will support, we have made the combination iu the interest of the public, as well as of the business, aud we believe the public will show their appreciation of the movement by giv ing us their hearty support. S. B. Buru, Business Manager. It is the misfortune of President llarrisou to have an unattractive personality. He is cold and unsym pathetic, and his manners appear stilted and unnatural. His appear ance amid the multitude at the recent centennial celebration in New York aroused nothing like popular enthusi asm. The New York Star speaks of a remarkable incident of the hall as follows; •‘An opportunity occurred at the ball to test the President’s popularity very thoroughly. When he entered the hall, in company with the mayor, the clapping of hands could scarcely be heard. An hour later Mr and Mrs. Cleveland came down from their box on to the floor. The whole as semblage sent up a shout that was perfectly spontaneous and seemed slraugCy out of {dace iu a ball-room. The contrast was the more striking because Mr. Cleveland was a Presi dent whose cudeavor always seemed to be to win the reject of the people rather than their affection. Com pared with Gen. Harrison, however, his popularity is somcthing*astonish- Railroad Racket. From a private letter to one of our prominent citizens we are permitted to publish tire following extract. ‘‘Presi dent Blake, of the A.'T. & G. Rail road tells me that work on said road will bo resumed within fiO days, per haps 30, and pushed vigorously on and on way up in Georgia."—Craw- fordville, Fla., Times.

Valdosta, Ga., May 11.—The Georgia Southern railroad crossed the Savannah, Florida and Western rail way to-day, aud u force ot more than one hundred hands began to lay rails southward. Enough rails for the completion of fifteen miles have al ready anired, and several carloads are being received duilv. The entire line from Valdosta is now covered with grades* aud cross lie hands, aud it is said that the road to that point will be completed soon. • WORK ON TIIE 3. A. & M. ROAD.

Wc were sitting in front of Taylor’s grocery, on a summer day, when a big black hog came nosing along the get ter, aud started a new train of thought. In the (*Towd of loungers was a man lrom St. Louis, aud, after watchiug the porker for awhile, lie remarked: ‘*1 wonder it that hog ever had a real good time in ail his life?” ‘•Hogs alius have good times, I ghess,” remarked the village cooper, who had knocked off work aud come over .to hear some polities. “I doubt it,” said the other. “He must feel.his degraded position iu life, and so he cannot be happy, I wish I could do something to make-him feel that life is worth the living.” “Fust man I ever saw who pitied a hog,” grunted the blacksmith, who ought to have been tacking a shoe on a waiting mule. “Yes, I do pity him. 1’vc been down myself, and know how it is. Taylor, have you got any cherry whiskey?” ■ “Mighty little, if any. Moro cher ries than whiskey, I guess.” “If you’ve two quarts of cherries, which have been in liquor, bring ’em out, and I’ll give you a half a dollar. I’m going to make that hog happy for two hours.” The grocer got the cherries, which had been lying in liquor for a couple of years, and the St. Louis man pour ed them out in tiie gutter for the hog. They were devoured with astonishiug avidity, aud the porker stood and looked at us aud hungered for more. It was doubted by some if the liquor would affect him, but after a few min utes ho beiran to frisk aud play, and was evidently under the influence.. “That docs me good,” said the donor of the cherries. “He is becoming fight hearted, and life wjjll take on new charms for him. Hang a raau who won’t give a hog a show!” Just theu the animal uttered course ‘woof!’ and charged for the crowd.

I tried all the doc tors aud many which were recommended by other parties, but the sores still grew worse, until I did not expect him to recover.

The people of Richmond should never have allowed the old prison sent to a Northern city to keep alive the prej udices of the war. , Ilawes, the alleged 'murderer, was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. He will probably get a new trial, because of the popular demon stration against him during the trial just closed.
