A few weeks ago we published a lengthy
. article on this subject, embracing estimates
made upon the survey, with appropriate
remarks by-Mr. Maxwell; but the article
was so badly printed, on account of illness
lind absence.of our Foreman from the office
,'nt the time, that we reproduce and repub
‘lish the article in to-day’s issue ort the
first page, with such alterations and modi
•tieations as circumstances seemed to re
quire. * •
The subject cannot be too well undtr
stood, nor 100 mucii considered by those
interested, and in asking attention to tins

attention-df our readers to their own inter

And as the Printer must have his holi
day as well as other people, we will issue
no paper next week. This, therefore, is
our last issue for the old year, but our pre

Now is a good time to subscribe, and we
hope those, who have not already’ done so,
will now come forward promptly and com

prefer, on account of inconvenience of mail
facilities, may subscribe for the Semi- Weekly
to be furnished weekly.
All delinquent subscribers will be cut off
with this issue of the paper, and if they
do not receive their papers hereafter, they
will know the reason. Hoping, however,
that all will renew their subscriptions and

CANVASSING FOR PATRONAGE,
The editor of the Bainbridge Argus is
disg tsted with the plan of ‘‘canvassing
for pair on age,” and has resolved never to i
Tie guilty of it again. Since the war he
ha’ canvassed all the adjoining Counties.
Apalachicola, Ihomasville. Savannah and
other places, and now says it is exceedingly
distaste fill to him. and his recent vi-it to
Savannah but prove? that he is wholly dis- j
qualified for the business Henceforth tie
means to ?‘ay at home and devote his ener
gies to hi? paper..
fr-pT’ We copy the following from the
Savannah Herald, of the 14tb inst., in ref-
I erenca to th* favorite project of the people |
: of this section, and return our thanks to •
! the Herald for the handseme manner in j
which it hat presented the subject to the j
citizens of Bavannah Whatever may be
x-id against the South t eorgia & Florida
Railroad by its enemies, all well informed
men here and in Savannah, know very
well, that whatever benefits it may eonfer ,
upon Thomasvilie, or other towns in ibis :
section, the great aggregate of wealth ac- i
eruing from it will be centered on the city
of Savannah. Therefore, her people are
deeply interested in it, and should hasten
Ito give us all the aid in their power. Our
citizens, as well as those of Mitchell and
Baker Counties, are in earnest about this
i road, and ere long they will demonstrate it
Iby deeds as well as words. Y\ e have a
letter from an influential getltleman in
MitchelF'COTnnty, who “assures us, that
! $200,000 can be obtained tn that section
to the stock of the Company, and this with
, the $300,050 in Thomas, will at once place
us above the necessity of aid from any
Month Georgia & Florida Railroad.
We learn that the Legislature has pass
ed a bill to authorize the City Coancil of
Thomasvil'e to issue bonds for taking stock
I in the above road, which is designed to
connect Tnomasville with Albany, and to
be extended ultimately to a point of in
tersection with the road spanning the pen
! insula of Florida. We are truly glad to
| learn from the Southern Enterprise that
the people of the country through which it
will pass are wide awake in reference to
the accomplishment of this project, and are
resolved to give assistance to the full ex
tent of their means. It says :
“They are looking to Thomas county as
the chief agent in -connecting them with
Savannah by railroad, and while relying
upon our own wealth and importance, are
determined also to help themselves. There
are many good and able men in that coun
ty, filled with a generous public spirit,
I aud they desire to be brought as speedily as
possible into communication with this sec
tion. Let us hasten the good work and give
! them renewed courage.”
This is a work in which our city is large-
I ly interested, and, therefore, claims * lie
attention_of oar merchants and real estate
holders. It is destined to place the Atlan
tic aud Gulf Road in communication with
an extended area of the most productive
1 cotton lands in Georgia, the products of
which will seek ihis point as a market or
: as an ocean outlet, instead of going as now
! to New Orleans and other points more dis
tant and inaccessible. With the comple
! tion of this enterprise and the extension of
I the Atlantic and Gulf Road to Bainbridge,
! Southwest Georgia and Middle and West
I F'lorida promises to become the finest cot
; ton growing region east of the Mississippi
river. The lands and climate of this mag
nificent belt of country are admirably
adapted to the growth of every species of
I vegetation that flourishes any where with
j in the temperate zone. e published a
| short time since'a letter from an intelligent
gentleman, who had traveled through the
counties of Stewart, Webster, Sumter, Ran
dolph, Terrill, Clay, Calhoun, Dougherty,
1 akcr, Miller, Early, Mitchell, Lee, Dooly, j
Worth, Chattahoochee and Marion, urg
ing at the request of the citizens of these ‘
large and productive counties their imme
diate communication with this city by rail.
We have since learned that the planters :
who are remarkatle for their intelligence j
and enterprise, are embarking with energy
into preparations for auother crop, and
that the best lands arc renting at the high
figures of eleven and twelve dollars per .
acre. It is also stated that the labor in
this section has been more efficient and un
der much belter control than elsewhere iu
the entire South. These unquestionable
facts demonstrate the importance of the
anticipated connection of Thomasvilie with
Albany, and the extension of the Atlantic
and Gulf road to the point stated, not only
. to the sections through which they pass,
; but to this qity as well. We call upon our
merchant-, capitalists and property.holders
to give the -subject immediate attention,
apd if, on examination, they find our views
“to be correct, to contribute everything in
• their power to establish these highways of
trade, which would contribute so greatly to
j.the commercial prosperity of their growing
city., • . • .’ ■

frjjfThe Bainbridge Argus is very much
annoyed by our “enthusiasm” in the ad
ivocacy of the South Georgia & Florida
Railroad, and thinks it too “ small” an af
fair for Ihe amount of steam we put on.
We understand why our advocacy of-this
road is so distasteful to our Bainbridge co
temporary, but we shall net take his ad
vice and “ turn our attention to the Atlan
tic &.Gulf Road.” That road is already
completed to Thomasvilie. and in-due lime
will reach Bainbridge, whether we turn
j our attention to it or-not. We will leave
j that master to the Argus, the self con
stituted • guardian and. pet of the road.—
While its editor remains ward of the city
of Savannah, and accepted champion of the
Atlantic & Gulf Road, he has nothing to
fear from the “ small” project of the South
Georgia & Florida Iload ; for should the
mighty structuie he is rearing give way, in
consequence of the gradually undermining
progress of our small project, they will rcs-
I cue him and take him under their special
protection uni patronage. So small a pro
; ject as the South Georgia & Florida Road,
should not disturb the grand speculations
of the Argus, and we take the liberty of
suggesting to is editor, in return, that in
future he need not give himself the trouble
ot noticing so small an affair. He might
have deriveu aa important lesson from the
I “ Gnat on thp Bull’s Horn,” for had he
no’ spoken, we- feel quite sure his weight
would not have been felt in the matter.
“The .VI wst Beautiful Hand. —Two
charming women were discussing one day
what it is which constitutes beauty in the
hand. They differed in opinion as much
as in the shape of the beautiful members
whose merits they were discussing. A
gentleman friend presented himself, and,
by common consent the question was re-
I ferred to him. It was a delicate matter.
He thought of Paris and the 8 goddesses.
Glancing from one to the other of the beau
tiful white hands presented him, which
by the way, he had the cunuiug to hold for
some time in his own. for the purpose of
examination, he replied at last : “ I give
it up ; the question is 100 hard for me • but
ask the poor, and they will tell vou that
the most beautiful hand in the world is the
hand that gives.”
Will our readers remember when they ;
read the above that Christmas is close at j
hand, and that no better time will ever be ‘
presented to them to make their “ hands
beautiful.'’ How beautiful is the hand that ■
gives to the needy! Don’t give to those :
who are able to return your gifts, but,
make glad the hearts of the poor, who can
make you no return. We are about to cele- !
brate the birthday of our Saviour—shall
any be sorrowful on that blessed day ? j
Remember that He was the friend to the
poor while on earth, and ia His Holy Word
promises to bless those who consider the
poor. He is still the friend of the poor,
and let us remember that we must all meet
Him face to face, sooner or later, and give
an account of our conduct toward the poor.
We are His stewards here below, having
His goods in our hands. Let us be care
ful that they are well bestowed. Remetn
bor the poor.
A NEW WORK.
We have received a Circular from the
National Publishing o/S^K 1
nenih <md Main Streets, Richmond, I’fe,, call
ing our attention to accompanying speci
men sheets tnken in advance of publication, *
|on Aleiasde* H. Stxpiikis, in Public
and Private, with Letters, Speeches, &c„ i
by Henry Cleveland, Esq., formerly editor
of the Augusta Constitutionalist.
The mine es the great man who is the
snbject of thi* new book, is sufficient to
give it favor in all this country, and the ■
only remaining information needed on
subject, is ihe character and ability es t|e ,
compiler or author of the work. This gen
ilwnan, we are informed, is Henry Cleve
land, formerly Editor of the Augusta Con
stitutionalist. Col. Cleveland has long been
regarded as au able writer and accomplish
ed gentleman, and bis lifetime acquaint- <
ance and familiarity with Ron. A. H. Ste
phens gave him a’l the advantages required.
It is a sufficient recommendation of the
work, however, that it has been read and
approved by Mr. Stephens himself. The
work will soon be ready, and are ;
wanted for K3 sale.
THE lItf.VIEMTEAD 811.1..
The new Homestead Bill met its death
in the Governor’s veto, and those who re
joiced over its passage, have now to lament
its death. The Homestead law therefore
stands on the statute book as before.
All the bills asking State Aid for Rail
roads also failed, except that fbr the Macon
& Brunswick Road, which was passed.
Bills of importance which have not ap
peared in our columns, will appear here-.,

The above we see paraded at the head

If the Republican considers us in South
western Georgia, we usk its editor to cor
rect his mistake. He has seen no such
notice paraded in the columns of the En-\
terprise, for we never deemed it necessary
to tell a falsehood to get patronage. But
we do not see how the Republican cart cen

publican), professes to have 500 wore sub

The Legifilature ad,ourned to-day sine
die. The closing speeches of the pre
siding officers of both Mouses are ex
pres.sive of great determination not to
succumb to unlawful demands. The
sentiment of the Legislature seems
decided in favor of Territorial rather
than acceptance of the constitutional
amendment of similar terms. The
Speaker of the Mouse, in his closing
address, bade the Country hope that
the tide of fanaticism would exhaust
itself, and that constitutional prit<c ; i
pies would yet pr vail.
The President of rhe Senate, in his
spe eh, sa : d : “Obey all laws anu
cleave to the Constitution ; but human
forbearance had Innas, and tho worm
would turn if tfudion on.*’
There was great applause iu both
Houses at these sentiments.
The veto of the extension of the
Homestead act was sustained. Five
vet es wire sent in, anl only that of
the Stay Law was overridden.
