That’* a Fact.—Quoth the Montgom ery Advertiser, it is a great convenience to the traveling public whtn a railroad ticket offico t* in the heart of the city. It does aw»y with all necessity of going to the depot »nd hurrying around while the train i*. perhaps on tha point of leaving, to get • ticket, or of sending otfffing away over them to effect that p irpni before one is ready to leave home. \ That Is a reflection wo lute (Ben in dulged in in respect to Macon. \Thore was s time when things were in hem. Under the rule*, regulation- ordinance* one could not pass ini station house without a ticket, and not buy a'ticket until ho got into station louse. That waa tho time ha-1 the Jienple in a corner; but while they let up on ns. The trntli however, there should be a ticket uptown. , No reason exist* for making agricul- tm» a collegiate specialty, nor do these institutions amount to any great sum considered from that point of view. Tho pbuv to learn farming is on tho farm, and not cn a garden patch or out of books: As well try to learn blackstaithing or bricklaying out of books as to plough, sow and rtap. It can't be done.—New Tori (.Vmmerriul Mnrtuer. Vary glibly spoken, to bo sure, but many wise men think differently. Both p an* are good to acquire a knowledge of fanning. Combine tho two, and tho pro duct is intelligent fanning, which always pnys. A fool may stumble sometimes updb a way to raise good crops, but it takes an intelligent man who has studied books that teach him the composition and needs of his soil to knowhow they should be ridtivatod. This railing against what is erroneously called "book farming” haa ployed oat in all civilised oesuntrios. Paounc Wheat.—There was ex hibited at Baltimore, on the IStli.abunch of wheat stalk*, from which hail been ♦•u! on* hundred and thirty good heads, the production of a single grain of wheat. It was grown in Essex county, \ a. Another bench, from the same farm, con taining one hundred and forty heads, produced one and a half pint* of good wheat. tho yield of two grail who examined the bunch exhv nounced it a great curiosity, tleman had before seen twi stalks from a single grain, and garded a* wonderful; but this lunch is nearly five time* grenjer. 4 Tux Memphis Avalanche say*.'"the Georgia Frau Association took ver, posi tive ground, at its late convttion. against the new law eononming ntspa- por exchange*, as being «» >nva^n of the Unmnnitiea of the "fourth «M>” of the ii-untry, and adverse to tho moral welfare.

At Machn it has rained on two days, and at Augusts, on mere than lutlf the days of the week; our telegram from the latter point soy* that they are having too much rain, and that very little now cotton is coming in yet All the early part the week wai pleasant at Savannah, but the latter part of the week they have h„.l rain.
