THE GEORGIA COTTON CROP* The following Georgia special in the New York Times gives some in- formation of the cotton crop in this State: "From first to last there has not been a rainy day daring the cotton* picking season, so that the entire crop presents the highest grade. The unexcelled weather for picking is also a guarantee that the crop has been pretty well marketed. "Now attention is being directed toward the size of the crop saved. To take one county as an example, it is estimated that the cotton crop of Talbot county will be 2000 bales short, which, at 9 cents, (the pre vailing price in former years,) would amount to $90,000. Then the pres ent indications are that there will be a falling ofi of about $7 50 per bale in the price of this year’s crop, which is estimated at about 10,000 bales in the connty, making another loss of about $75,000. 'These two sums added amount to $165,000, or a redaction in the rev enue from the cotton crop of about $12 each on the county’s 14,000 in habitants. This would indicate a shortage of 200,000 bales throughout the State. has already said : "Nothing can be done, however, without money. But where is the money to come from ? There are very few who wonld con tribute more than a few dollars un less they would be benefited by hav ing Georgia represented at the fair. And they wonld contribute nothing at all unless they could be assured that the exhibit wonld be one of which Georgians would not be ashamed.” The first thing to be done, there fore, is to get the railroads interested in the matter. Let them seek to make it a great display, then others will follow, relying upon it that the exhibit will be snch as the Empire State of the South will be glad to call hei own. But one copy of The Savannah Press has come to us. What can be the mat- r with Editor Stovall’s manipulating figures if they cannot give a mi re cor dial itor of the Atlanta Journal, is the most graceful, easy dancer among the Geor gia editors. If so, he dances very much like he writes. LARRY GANTT’S ADVICE- Editor Gantt of the Southern Alli ance Farmer urges the farmers to hold back their cotton. He says: We are opposed to meddling in the private affairs of our members, and while frequently asked for our advice about selling cotton, we de clined to express an opinion. But since the staple has gone be low eight cents, we say to every far mer in Georgia, don’t sell a bale un til an advance takes place. It costs you more than the price now paid to raise cotton, and don’t give away your toil to the speculator. There is no cause or reason for this decline in price. The crop is FOURTH ESTATE FELLOWS. press? They say that Jack Cohen, news ed- rf] Editor Shackelford, of the Oglethorpe Echo, was in the city a few days ago.

Catarrh is a blood or constitutional disease, and iu order to cure it you have to take in teranl remedies. Hall’s Catarrh Cure is taken internally, and acts directly on the blood and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh Cure is no quack medicine. It was prescribed by oue of the best phy- a cians iu tbis country for years, and Biregular prescription. It is compos of tbe best tonics known, combined with tbe best purifiers, acting directly, on the mucous surfaces. Tbe perfect combination of tbe two ingredients wbat produces such wonderful results in curing catarrh. 8end for testimoni als free. F. J. CHENEY & CO , Props, Toledo, Ohio.

DuBose, all over Georgia, will be seriously concerned to know that he has been quite sick at bis home in Chickamauga for the past few days. Mr. DuBose was taken very criti cally sick last week and a telegram was received by his relatives here in Athens a few days ago sammoning them to bis bed-side. The latest news from the sick man is that he has typhoid fever, and is quite dangerously ill, though evis dences of improvement are noted. Rev. Mr. DuBose is well known all over this part of the South. He is a grandson of the immortal Robt, Toombs, is a graduate of the State University, has been one of the lead ing editors of Georgia, and is now prominent among the ranks of Meth odist ministers. Everybody hopes to hear of his recovery. In Which Ned Lester Comes out Sec ond Best. Athens bad quite a lively cutting scrape yesterday afternoon about three o’clock.

Columbia, S. C., Nov. 26.—Another personal encounter occurred in the state house. This time it was between A. E. Gonzales, general agent, of The State, and M. F. Tighe. correspondent of the Charleston News and Courier. Gonzales approached Tighe and, pro ducing a copy of the News and Courier, read therefrom« portion of Tighe’s ac count of the other fights, which he de nounced as a lie Upon repeating it. Tighe struck him. Gonzales responded by kitting Tighe under tbe left eye, cut ting a gash which bled profnsely. The two men then clinched and rolled over on. tbe floor, Gonzales being on top. Both men fought gamely for several minutes. Finally, when they had both got up, Tighe said: “You are my physical superior, but m fight you in any way a gentleman ought to fight, and I challenge you now." -r - Gonzales implied that Tighe could get all the fight he wanted out of him in any way ho desired. Tbe row occurred just outside the door of the hall of the bouse of repre sentatives, whilst that body was in session, and many members rushed out tothesbene. Shortly thereafter Repre sentative Burns brought the affair to the attention of the house, but action was postponed. Such was the remark that was pro voked by the scenes in} and around Athens yesterday. The fourteenth amendment was on hand by a large majority and the crowded streets were black with ebon It was a scene that locked more like “do Fofe o’ July” than a Thanksgiving day in midwinter. Rut it was nothing more than everybody at all familiar with the customs and faith of the col ored brother, knew it would be. Whenever the negro gets off on “holler-dsy” he seeks the biggest crowd that "he can fiud. If there hap pens to be a circus anywhere near at iaud, the negroes for miles around are certain to be right there and nowhere else All the combined powe s of tbe lower regions couldn’t frighten them away from a circus. It is their nature. They can’t help it. Yesterday brought "cuffle” out in vast numbers, and the circus pulled in about two or three thousand quarters from the deluded brother in black. Twelve Men Killed. Minneapolis, Nov. 20.—A speeial to The Tribune from Tacoma says a terri ble accident occurred in the forenoon near Canyon, a station on Green river, some seventy miles east of Taooma. Sixty workmen were cent to repair recent washouts on the Northern Pacific railroad. While thus employed at the base of a high bluff, extending from the river, several thousand yards of bluff tumbled on those beneath, killing twelve outright, hurling 200 yards of railroad track and two men into the river, and burying several others, some •f whom, it is thought, may be rescued alive. unlay, stared that he had been quite sick for several day« his temperature ' going as high as 104 th-gr- e ; and on Sunday she (received a tc:egratn asking her to come up nr.fl see hint i Mrs Colley (eft on the fast train Monday morning.

Tbe wounds are not of a necessarily fatal nature. A DELIGHTFUL DINNER Beeelved the Newt « hi la Preaching. Bowling Green, O., Nov. 20.—Lieu tenant-Governor Chase, of Indians, who has been here a good deal of late mak ing political speeches and preaching at Disciple church, received a telegram while preaehing that Governor Hovey had died and that he should return at onoe and take the oath of office as gov ernor of Indiana. He finished his ser mon, however, and at the conclusion of which he drove to Tontogany and went to Indianapolis. Thus Governor Chase became governor of Indiana while preaching in Bowling Green.

December tbe fourth is the day set apart by the citizens of MacoD for holding a convention of Georgia editors for tbe purpose of arriving at some plan whereby tbe State of Georgia may si cure a display of her unbounded resources at the World’s Fair in Chicago. Id spite of the flat and decided re fusal of the Georgia legislature to pass a bill appropriating money to tbe World’s Fair exhibit from Geor gia, the people of the State are very enthusiastic in their desire to have their Ctnte represented there. They are not responsible for the many foolish and obstinate doings of the Georgia legislature, and this is one of them. The people of Georgia wonld feel ashamed to go to Chicago, as they will go, and see the hand some displays from all tbe ether States and some remote territories of the country, and have no display la belled with the letters that spell out the name of their proud old Empire ovate of the South.

Clarksville, Nov. 20.— Iu the year 1854 George Alwell, one of Clarksville’s oldest citiEens, was appointed trustee over the property of William Reynolds, Mr. Reynolds was in financial difficult ies, and named Mr. Alwell to hold hia property for hia children. ▲ fsw months ago William Reynolds died. His widow died only a few weeke ago. The chil dren of Mr. and Mra. William Rey nolds, who live in different states, have come to Clarksville for the purpose of dividing tbe properfy which their aged parents left them. Upon investigation it was found that they cannot touch this property, for it wm held in trust by George Alwell. It turned out fur ther that Mr. Alwell did not know that he bud control of the property a* time- tee.
