Gordon County Agricultural Club.
Citizens of Gordon, remember, that on the
first Tuesday in September, a meeting of our
County Agricultural Club will be held for
the purpose of adopting a constitution, elect
ing officers —permanent organization and
preparation for business. It will not do for
our people to sleep over this interest any
longer. Other sections, with inferior re
sources to our own are going ahead, building
up their Agricultural Societies, and with
these, their material wealth. Will we lag
behind, until overshadowed by the greatness
of our neighbors, the unlimited resources of
old Gordon are lost sight of by the outside
world, and she is put down upon the maps as
one of the few waste places in the Empire
State? No farmer or other citizen [can say
he is not directly interested in this matter.
If the considerations of general progress—
the advancement in the science of agricul
ture —does not move a man to act, that of
dollars and certs certainly should. If proper
steps are taken by this club, and it is partici
pated in by all the people, we dare say, that
in less than five years from to-day, fifty per
cent, can be added to the average price of
lands in Gordon county.
Then let everybody turn out, put the right
men at the wheel, and get to work in earnest.
W’e learn that R. W. Phillips, member of
the State Executive Committee for this Dis
trict is expected to be present, and deliver

Churches and Schools.
In speaking of the above subjects, we
wotrld crave the indulgence of our readers,
if we seem to be much engrossed with their
necessity and impoi'tance, as contributors to
the public weal. Having at heart the good
and prosperity of our town, we shall always
urge upon the attention of our citizens those
improvements which must ever be of vital
importance to a community.
W’e may confidently assert as a general
fact, that the condition of Churches and
Schools in a place, always indicates the tone
and character of the inhabitants. When we
see a community enjoying the blessings and
benefits of religion and education to the
highest extent, we may be sure that progress
and prosperity obtain among the people, that
all the wheels of improvement are properly
and that a genial feeling of easy
satisfaction, is the portion of the happy re
cipients. Here, in such a section as the
above, the principles and feelings of human
nature receive their appropriate culture and
refinement, spreading such a benign and sal
utary influence all around, as to attract with
in the charmed circle, all the dissolute and
bad in the scope of its bearings. Here it is
that those feelings of our nature, which bear
and forbear arc fostered and cherished, and
all the machinery of human government and
human action controlled and directed by the
powerful force of religion, moves on in the
most wonderful harmony, inculcating the
Divine Precept, “Peace on earth and good
will to men.’’ There i3 no agency that exer
cises so spiritual an influence in the soul of
man, for good, as pure and undefiled reli
gion ; none a more controlling effect over the
mind of man than education. With this
short preface to the subject more immediate
ly in view, we will speak more pointedly to
the condition of our own Churches and
Calhoun and vicinity, with a population of
near one thousand inhabitants, enjoying
many of the appliances necessary to their
prosperity and progress, in comparison with
other places of smaller note, yet, lags be
hind, seemingly bereft of that energy and
enterprise which should characterize a pro
gressive people. The little old hull of a
church which stands at the extremity of
Court House street, must ever be a crying
shame to the people of our town. It is over
five years since the cessation of hostilities,
and yet, we have not recuperated sufficiently
to build one house of worship in which to
praise the Living God ! Sabbath after Sab
bath comes and goes and no interests felt for
Arouse, we say, arouse, our fellow-men,
and let immediate steps be taken to wipe
away this reproach from among us.
We would suggest that a more suitable and
convenient situation be secured, and a good
and substantial building be erected to the
honor and glory of our Maker. By so doing,
and continuing therein, a degree of thrift
and prosperity will bless our place to such
an extent as it has never before witnessed,
and which will cause the cry to go up. Be

Schools, we are gratified to state, are as
suming a more encouraging aspect in this
community. We are glad to be able to lend
our tribute of appreciation to the masterly
and efficient manner in which the exercises of
our school at the Academy are conducted.
1 hough the school is now prosperous and
flourishing, it behooves us to make it doubly
so, by concentrating all our efforts towards
building up a school of a high order in our
midst. Let these two great agencies be firm
ly established, and we will have but little
teai about the morality and enlightenment
of our people and the condition of rising

A Little Fortune for a Dollar.— This is
what we would call cheaper than dirt, but it
is nevertheless the case that somebody is go
ing to get a fine river farm in this rich section
for the pitiful sum of one dollar.
A fine farm, a good dwelling house and lot.
a splendid pair of large match horses or
mules, or a fine carriage or buggy, are not to
be “picked up every day.” And yet, one dol
lar \\ ill procure a ticket, giving the purchaser
a fair chance at these very desirable prizes.
This grand scheme has been gotten up by
a number of our good citizens, for the pur
pose of selling off property, and adding to
the population and wealth of our section.—
It is no wild speculation of unsettled adven
turers, and these facts being known through
out this section and many others, accounts
for the we* ierful rapidity with which the
tickets are being sold. Read the list of prizes,

Plain Truths. —Mr. Z. T. Gray, of Cal
houn, whose advertisement will be found in
another column, manufactures wagons and
buggies with a special eye to their use in this
rocky, limestone country. His experience
in the business enables hiip to determine all
the various points in their construction which
are necessary to long usage. We have seen
wagon’s of Mr. Gray’s make which had been
in continuous hard serviee for three years,
without the expenditure of one cent for re
pairs. There is a reliable citizen of Gordon
county who will testify that he has had one
of Mr. Gray’s buggies in constant use for
eight years, and has only paid out fifty cents
for repairs during that time. After learn
ing these facts we were not surprised at the
ready sale Mr. Gray finds for his wagons and

the various reports hereafter. At pre

to the State Boad.
I transmit the report of the Western
and Atlantic Railroad for the fiscal year
ending October 1, 1869 :
The total receipts were $1,138,300 63
The total disbursements 822,195 75
Excess of receipts $ 316,105 08
Ratio of working expen
ses ’ 58 58-100 per cent.
THE QUARTERLY REPORT FOR THE
RUARTER ENDING JULY 1, 1870,
Gives receipts for the last
quarter of this year at $ 320,165 23
And the total expenses 394,190 23
Os this amount $112,411 42 were
extraordinary expenses, viz :
For new rails $76,678 26
For new cars 14.358 25
For new, and repairs to, depot
buildings, 13,921 68
For spikes, wheels, &e. 7,453 13
If these extraordinary expenses had
not been met, the amount paid into the
treasury for the last quarter would have
been say SIOO,OOO, unless accidents
likely to result from insecure track and
inefficient machinery should have re
duced this amount.
I have believed that a wise economy
and proper management of the road de
manded that it be placed in first-class
order, and I have, therefore, approved
the expenditures necessary for new rails,
etc., to accomplish this result.
I have been willing to endure the
censure of the thoughtless who complain
of the management of the road, rather
than allow this great State property to
be temporarily patched up at a nominal
expense, and to the risk of the lives of
the thousands who pass over it. Still
greater outlays are necessary to put the
whole line in first-class order, with
sufficient equipment to transact, without
delay, the largely increasing business.
I respectfully submit to the considera
tion of your honorable body, whether it
is not wise to provide means for the
immediate restoration of the road to
proper condition, rather than defer it to
be accomplished gradually from its earn
ings. Rufus B. Bullock.
