Railroad Meeting. A large number of our most promi nent citizens met last night at the court house to discuss the subject of a railroad from Augusta to Thomasville, as suggested in our last issue. Judge Hopkins announced the pur pose of the meeiing, and on motion W. R. McIntyre was called to the chair and B. F. Hawkins elected sec retary. Mr. Smith, the president of the Augusta & West Florida railroad, stated the conditions upon which the stock should be subscribed,which were, in substance, that upon a subscription of $£o,ooo to the capital stock of the road, the company agreed to build to Thomasville and seek no competing route, that lands would be taken at fair valuation in subscriptions; that the stock would not be called for and was not due until the road was built, from Augusta to Thomasville, and would be void if work was not commenced within one year from date and completed within three years. Hon. A. T. McIntyre endorsed the movement and stated how he had looked into the matter' and had placed safeguards around the charter to pro tect Thomasville. Col. A. P. Wright spoke on the sub ject and explained the great benefits of-t’ne road and the feasibility of the project. Mr. T. C. Mitchell made an ex haustive review of the incipiency of the movement, explained how he had looked carefully into it, knew its prac ticability and give it his hearty en dorsement and aid. He made a stirr ing appeal to the audience to go to work to secure the road. He was hear lily applauded. Dr. Bower, Judge * Hopkins and others spoke on the subject, and after many questions and satisfactory an swers from Mr. Smith, Judge Alexan der offered the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted: Resolved, That the proposition o 1 C. E. Smith, president of the Augusta & West F orida railroad, is fair, liberal and just, and that the sense of this meeting is that his proposition ought to be accepted, and that the citizens of the town and county ought to come to the aid ol the enterprise as liberally as they can. After further discussion, on - motion of Judge Hopkins, the subscription was opened and .$20,000 was subscrib ed in the meeting. On motion, E. M Mallette, B. F. Hawkins and J, S. Montgomery were appointed as a committee to assist Mr. Smith in a canvass of the city, for the remaining subscriptions. On motion the meeting adjourned. Another Burglary. Shortly after dark on Wednesday night Mrs. Sampson, wife of Mr. S. Sampson, the fruit dealer, captured Edward Mitchell, a colored youth some 15 or 10 years old, who had just burglarized her residence, corner Cal houn and Dawson streets. During her absence Edward had effected an entrance into the house through a rear window aud had secured sundry articles of provisions and some jewelry, but had not gone when she returned. Seeing or hearing her coming lie threw the articles under the hou aud was making off, hut her quick eye detected the raised window and immediately she suspicioned foul play. She ordered him to halt, and by pre senting a pistol persuaded him to re main until her husbaud could be sent for. The barrel upon which he reach ed the window, the open window, the missing articles from the house and | Edward’s presence told the story too j plainly and he was lodged in jail. J Mrs, Sampson’s coolness and deter- | mination were most opportune aud will result, it is hoped, in Edward becoming a better and a wiser boy. A pony attached to a cart, ran away r on Carioll Hill yesterday, throwing the driver, Jefferson Griffin, colored, and another man who was with him, in a ditch. Griffin was slightly hurt. Dr. A. D. Bender, Mrs. I. Titus aud Miss J. Miller, of Cincinnati, O., arrived last uight for the winter. They are guests of the Stuart. Tribute to Mrs, Hansell. Whereas, it has pleased cur Heavenly Father, in His all wi»c providence, to re move by death Mrs. Margaret Charlton Hansell, we, the surviving members of the Ladies’ Memorial Association, would offer this tribute of affection to our deceased friend and co-laborer. Af the close of the late war, the ladies of Thomasville, in common with the women of the South, organized a society under the name of the Ladies’ Memorial Association, for the two-fold purpose of assisting disi bled Confederate soldiera, and of erecting a mon ument to the memory of those noble sons of Tliomns county who died in the defence of a principle which they held ns dear as life itself. This society was organized in the spring of 1874. The following were the original members and managers of this association, viz : Mrs. A. P. Wright, Mrs. C. P. Hansell, Mrs. Milner Smith, Mrs. P. W. McGlaslian, Mrs, T. S. Paine, Miss Alice Moore, Mrs. C. D. Barraltc, Mrs. 0. D. Scott, Mrs, A, G. .SheftaM, Mrs. George Parnell, Miss .Mattie Seward and Miss Etta Reid. Mrs. Hansell, one ol the lending spirits in this movement, was (lected its first presi dent. Many a confederate veteran has been the recipient of her generosity, anil will rise up in the last day and call her blessed. To her indefatigable labors and untiring zeal much of the success in procuring fund tor the erection of the beautiful monument to our confederate dead, is attributed. It was eminently proper that she, who had labored so faithfully, should have been chosen to unveil this monument, so long the cherished object of her heart. Having, herself, lost a loved one in the shock of battle, she was ever ready to lend a helping hand to all who suffered, either iu body or estate, from the ravages of a cruel war. But her benefactions are now ended, her many deeds of love and charity aro over and she has been cnllcd to reap the rewards of her labors, and receive the plaudit of "well done, good and faithful servant. We, the surviving members of this a ciation, acknowledging the righteousmu our Father in Heaven, desire to give ex pression to our feelings in the following resolutions: Resolved, 1st. That we recognize in this bereavement the hand of a kind and merci ful Father, and while bowing submissively to 11i° will, would lny to heart the solemn lesson it imparts. Resolved, 2nd. That in the deatli of Mrs. Hansell, our association has lost one of most useful and generous members—Die poor, a kind and charitable friend—and society—one ot its brightest ornaments. Resolved, 3rd. That we tender our heart felt' sympathy to the loving husband and devoted daughter, with the earnest prayer that He wiio has so sorely chastened, will pour into their bleeding hearts the balm of consolation. Resolved, 4th, That these resolutions he published in the city paper, and a copy of the same ho furnished the family of the de ceased. Fall -AND ■Winter CLOTHING! and our line ot Negro Man Shot. Just before going to press, we re ceived information that a negro was shot last night on Mr. Bob Varnadoe’s place, four miles from the city, by another negro man. Dr. J. G. Hop kins was called to attend to the wound ed man, who is said to have been shot with a load of buckshot. A Tribute. A touching and appropriate tribute to the life and labors of Mrs. Hansell, by the surviving ladies of the Ladies’ Memorial Association, appears to-day. Another, passed by the General Be nevolent Association, will appear to morrow. In both these organizations the dcceasd was without a peer as an earnest worker. From her fertile brain and generous heart emanated many of the good deeds performed by these worthy organizations. The Lost Cause, and the distressed and needy had no truer friend than Mrs. Hansell. Id perpetuating the honor and memory of the former, or in relieveing the wants of the latter, she never faltered or tired. She resis from her labors, but her good works will live on. Mrs. Launder and daughter, of Chicago, arrived last night, and .will spend the winter at Mr. R. W. Glading’s. Mr. Joe Grier, of Savannah, paid the city a visit, yesterday.
