TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
Sometime in December last the executive
committee or the State Agricultural and Mechan?
ical Society held a meeting, and resolved to call a
combined meeting of the members or the society
and the stockholders of the Auxiliary Joint Stock
Company, in Columbia, on Wednesday, 8th Febru?
ary next, at 7 o'clock, P. M. This resolution was
published by the secretary in the Columbia Phoe?
nix, and all papers In the State were respectfully
asked to give their readers the benefit or this in?
formation. I have never 6cen such notice in TOE
NEWS; bu: I did see in your valuable paper the
proceedings or Uie Charleston Agricultural Soci?
ety (strangely called the South Carolina Agricul?
tural Society.) In which was a resolution to ap?
point a committee to attempt a union of that
society with the State Agricultural and Mechani?
Now can that committee have any more propi?
tious time to eflect the object or then appointment
than at the meeting on the 8th February ? And,
ir they do submit the proposition at that time,
should not the members or tho South Carolina
Agricultural and Mechanical Society, and the
stockholders or the Auxiliary Company from
Charleston, all be present at that meeting?
Doubtless thc upper counties or the State will be
well represented, and unless the seaboard ls there
In force, to speak for herseir, we may little hope
for a anion.
At this meeting, too, many other topics will be
discussed. I for one was mach pleased with Gov?
ernor Scott's idea of thc State contributing half
the premium list. Why should this not be done?
Wc.are entitled to State atd, and why should we

Will you not, too, Mr. Editor, for the benefit or
those who are nt present grievlug over the low
price or cotton, whisper Into the ears or the varl
3'JS railroad presidents that half-rare tickets
tvould be promotive or grc.it good at that meet?
ing in February? At such a meeting the mern
oers should unquestionably discuss thc- questions
ot profit and loss to the State by the present agrl
:nltural system, and posshly some means might
JO devised whereby better success could be se?
cured for the future. We are now upon the thresh?
