There was quite a gathering ui Au gusta, Tallahassee and Gulf Railway officials in Tallahassee Saturday. They mean business, and the road is coming right along. A Eloridian reporter cornered Chief Engineer Cook and learned from him that work was going steadily forward on the bridge across the Uchlockonec river, piling already having been driv en down lor about half the distance across. They are driving through a white clay, and get a solid lime rock foundation—equal to stone. Chiet Engineer Cook also informed the reporter that the contractors would be here about the first of September, and that then the work ol construction would begin on this side of the river in earnest, and that there would be no let-up until the road was completed. The Floridian’s special reporter at the river sends in about the same in formation. He says: “It is railroad now in good earnest—about one-half of the river is piled, and work keeps moving—they drive through stiff clay and sl’ike solid rock—splendid found ation for a bridge.” Those who have money to invest will strike a bonanza by buying lands anywhere along the line.—Floridian, Tallahassee. The New Board of University Trus tees. Speaking of the new hoard of trus tees, of the State University, the Constitution says: The whole government of the uni versity will lie shifted within two weeks. The governor is required to appoint the new board by the first of September, and if he signs the bill, as it is understood lie will, the respon sibility will lie shifted by that time. The new board is to meet in Athens and organize on the third Monday in September, the opening day of the fall term. According to the new law it will in clude : Ten-trustees from the congressional districts. Four from the state at large. Hon. X. E. Harris, chairman Technological com mission. Two trustees from Athens. And the governor, ex-officio mem her. Making eighteen members in all. Of the sixteen members to bo ap pointed by the governor, four will he appointeil for two years, four for . four years, four for six ami lour for eight years, so that the eight-year tortas will expire biennially, four at a time. The appointment of four trus tees biennially will keep up a rota tion in the board. The Biggest sale of Tobacco Ever Made- Yellow Fever on Shipboard Wade Hampton Explains Why the South is Solid Four Ocean Steamers Racing Across the Atlantic Investigating The West Point Terminal Comp'y. Gm isvii.i.i:, Kv., Aug. 21.-- Tin largest sale of tobacco ever mac auction in one day in the United Stales, and probably in the world, was made here to-day. The total number of hogsheads sold wan 1,002. This amounts to about I,.TOO,000 pounds, worth in the hogshead over 8100,000. Li:\vt-;s, Dr.t,., Aug. 21.—The ship John A. Briggs, from Rio Janeiro for Philadelphia, is detained at quar antine here on account of yellow love cases aboard at Rio and during tlie voyage.

AVasiiixctox, Aug. 21. —Senator Hampton in ail interview here to-day said that the republicans were tnakin an effort to break into the solid south by introducing economic questions, hut that it would fail. He “As long as local self government demands our attention, our people cannot he divided on this issue. Whether man is a protectionist or tariff reformer the safety or welfare of his home is paramount to the tarifl.” Nkw York, Aug. 21.—Great in terest is taken in the sailing of four big steamships which left for Europe to-day. The big racers Teutonic of the White Star line, City o’f New York of the Inman line, Saale of the North German Lloyd line, and the City of Rome of the Anchor line, all had a fair number of saloon passen gers, and all were eagerly discussing the merits of the several vessels. Of course, the Teutonic and the City of New York were the favorites, for the great race eastward to Queenstown lies between them. Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 21.The special joint committee appointed to investigate the West Point Terminal deal in this state, and report wherein the constitution of Georgia is violated, began its investigation this afternoon, mitor Bartlett presiding. Among the railroad men present were Gen. Alexander and the erstwhile duelists lit Calhoun and Col. Williamson of the, Chattanooga, Rome and Co lumbus road. Gen..

Tn every county save one the organi zation was strong and growing. t (tie year ago the membership was ■10,1100. To-day the rolls showed that 120,1100 persons claimed alle giance to its Hag. Sanford’s Fertilizer Bill. An important bill was passed in the Senate on Tuesday—the Sanford fertil izer bill, winch seems to be more ac ceptable than Brady’s, and threatens to drive that measure out. There was considerable debate over it, but only three voled against it. The bill pro vides that on the demand of the pur chaser of any commercial fertilizer or composting chemical, a fair represen tation sample, securely sealed glass bottle, shall be deposited in the office of the ordinary ol the county in which the purchaser resides or in which the fertilize: is delivered, and that such samples it analyzed by the chem istof the stale agricultural departments and received in the courts as evidence, in case oi a purchaser should claim that the commodity has been found worthless.

PiTTSM iio, Pa., Aug. 20.—The general impression that the South Fork dam would never he rebuilt up pears to be erroneous, as there i strong probability that a fishing lak will again he established in that Ideal ity. A member of the fishing club of that name said to day that the belief that South Fork dam had been abandoned by the club was a mistak en idea. The club, he said, could not afiord to lose the money it had invest ed in real estate in that locality. The property was worth fully 8200,000, and if the fishing resort was not re established the whole investment would become almost a dead loss. The intention was not to Imild a dam of the size of the one destroyed, hut one which would make the lake much less in size, so that in the event of the harrier again giving way no, destruc tion to life and property would (bi- low. No move in that direction will be made until the damage suit now pending against the stockholders is settled, cither by being paid or com promised. The object is to establish a fair sized pond capable of holding a good stock of fish. lina because it could not he chartered in Georgia. Bomk, Ga., Aug. 21.—The saddest event in the annuls of Odd Fellow ship in Georgia, occurred this morn ing at the meeting of the Grand Lodge. P. G. M. Adolph Brandt, of Atlanta, one of the leading lawyers of Georgia, was suddenly stricken with apoplexy while on the floor speaking. He had arisen to address the grand body, and had only spoken, when suddenly, placing his hand on his heart, he exclaimed: “Oh! God, what is the matter with me?” He fell hack in his chair and expired in a few moments. 11 is untimely death has east a gloom not only ever the Odd Fellows, hut the citizens of Home in eneral. Dalton, (la., August 10. —The Farmers’ alliance in this part of Geor gia, together with the cotton mill arc fighting the jute trust with a vim which prognosticates success. The Crown cotton mills of this place are making the fim st quality of cotton bagging and are receiving orders from all over the south, as wherever it is seen it takes the preference. They make it like cotton duck, forty inches wide, and a bale of the lleccy staple wrapped up in it looks like a society belle dressed for a picnic. Mr. Harrell's bill, which provided that bills should he invited for the sale of the State road at the same time when it is offered for lease, was defeated in the House on Wednesday, by a vote of HI to *7. That settles the question of selling. — - • • ■ Your uncle Jerry Rusk declines to form a part of Tanner’s escort to the meeting of the G. A, R. Your uncle Jerry’s head is very level. Dots from Valdosta. Quito a romantic wedding took place here last night at the Central hotel, witnessed by a number of the guests; Mr. L. R. Stephens, of Adel, to Miss Addie Milcy, of Sparks. The lady arrived here on Saturday last, on a visit to friends, and on Monday the gentleman called upon her with an introductory letter from a friend ol his. It seems that it was one of those cases of “love at first sight,’’ as all necessary arrangements for the tv^ding were soon made. Rev. R. T. Gnodrum went through with the solemn ccremo ny of pronouncing them man and wife, and the bridal couple went their way rejoicing. Several new and handsome buildings are going up in our 'city. The new bank building and Converse Ilro.’i store are splendid, and would do credit to any city. The Georgia Southern and Florida railroad is pushing ahead as fast as pos sible, and ere long the sin ill whistle of the locomotive will be heard as It speeds along its way ftom Valdosta to the land ol (lowers. They have a nice depot at this place, which is nearing completion. . Ilrj. Valdosta, Aug. 22. INSURE AGAINST ACCIDENTS.

JOS. IIA NS FIX MERRILL, Mayor pro tern. Thomasville, Oa., Aug. 10, 1880. Why is It People will continue to buy groceries on .'10 days’ time, and thereby pay 15 per cent, more for them than they can buy them for for tlic spot cash. Don’t you know you are paying 15per cent, on some account the merchant can’t collect? He has to charge those who do pay, enough to make good his losses in bad accounts. It is perfectly legitimate and business-like, too! He has to live. But while it is perfectly right in him to charge you that way, il is very foolish in you to pay ft, becauso you can make that per cent, yourself by buying your goods for cash. I will take your order at regu lar prices, and then discount it 15 per cent, for the cash. Respectfully, M. P. Pickett. Electric Hitter*.
