The undersigned were appointed a
committee at a meeting of the Agricul
turist#, held in tho city of Eatonton,
Georgia, at the lito Agricultural Fair
in Putnam county, to addres- you on the
subject of immigration, and to ark your
co-operation It was agreed to bold a
meeting in the City llall, at 10 o’clock,
A M., on Wednesday, the 9 h day ot
December, ensuing, composed of one
delegate, at least, from each eouoty in
the State, to devise and set on foot the
best plan for all the different sections of
Georgia, to promote immigration from
the Northern States and Europe, as will
furnish the best labor od the best tcrms j
for the improvement and dt v lopment o
all the varied interests of Georgia and
Georgians. Touohing the immediate
subject of immigration, the committee
deem it bcstjnot to propose any plan of
action in this address, but to leave the
whole question to the Convention —and
wo simply urge a full attendance at the
This, People of Georgia, is no small
work, nor is it n Utopian id a. And
now is the time for the work to begin.
It has already been delayed too long,
and if deferred still will only eud in
Farmers of Georgia! tho burden
rests mainly on your shou’ders. Others
are to be benefited in a c rresp nding
ratio—but it devilvis mainly upon you
to “put the bail in motion.” Cos oper
ation 13 wbat we need. This is to be
effected by full and free discussion of
the whole question. This can be had
at Macon at the tiino specified. We
cordially invite you, therefore, ‘Farmers
of every county in Georgia,’ to (.ppoin*
one or more Delegates to represent your
interests in the Convention at Macon,
and to aid in tho work. Wo must not
wait. There is too much danger in de
lay. Too much sacr.fice in postpone
ment. Send the best men you can get,
and let the good work commence. It
will tako months to accomplish the first
step in the enterprise. It is all impor
tant to begin right. One false step may
be incalculable mischief. Our present
labor, from the signs of the times, will
in a few years more, be almost worth
less. It is not the sort of labor we
need now. It is inadequate, unskilled
and unreliable, and becoming more so
Maryland is awake ! Virginia is
arousing! Missouri, Texas and Arkan
sas, are all moving ! Georgians 1 we,
too, must begin, if we would save our
good old State, ourselves and our chil
dren from abject poverty. Oar invita
tion is earnest—the cii is is near; the
results certain and glorious, it we begin
right, begin in lime, and act through
out with wisdom. I.et us have r prex
sentatives from every county, at Macuu.
And let us then and there inaugurate a
Bystem of labor which shall regain our
lost prosperity. It, and it alone, will
be our salvation.
The redemption of Georgia from pov
erty, now upon her, the improvement of
her lands, the development of all her
great and varied resources, iu the work
to be accomplished. It can be done.—
This work must he a beginning. This
is the object of the Convention at Ma
con. There is not labor enough in the
Btate to accomplish a ti.he of what may
be done with proper management. In
addition to all the labor we new have,
we need hundreds of thousands of
ekilled laborers from abroad for this
great work. And in conjunction with
this labor wo shall need capital and cap
it ali sis; let us invito them, too, from the
North ami from Europe, if the Conven
tion deems it best to do ho.
Be not lukewarm upon this subject,
for this ia the goldeu opportunity to
make a beginning. No work ean be
half so important for us or our children.

Messrs. Perry Davis & Son, Providence, R.
I.—Dear Sirs : During a residence of some
ten fears as a missionary in Siam and China,
I found four Vegetable Pain Killer a most
remedy for that fearful scoutge the
cholera. In administering the medicine, I
found it most effectual to give a teaspoonful
of Path Kdier in a gill of hot water ewpet
ened with sugar; hen after about fifteen
minutes, begin to give a taMespoonful of the
«ame mixture every minute until relict was
obtained. Apply hot applications to the ex
tremities. H uh** the stomach with P in Kil
ler, clear, and rub the limb* briskly. O' those
who had the cholera and took the medicine
faithfully in »he way above, »icht out
of ten recovered. Truly vours, R. Telford.
