Ttl? Macon AgricrtUatfkl Convention.
We learn that thia wai a strong assem?
blage of the solid agriculturists of Geor?
gia, fj Alabama, Texas and South Caro?
lina were also represented. Tho dele?
gates from this State were J. S. Richard?
son. Eaq., of Sumter, T. H. Clarke, Esq.,
of Kershaw, and Major T. W. Wood?
ward, of Fairfield. The delegates met
with'a cordial r coop lion. On the occa?
sion of the collation givon, Mr. Richard?
son responded in behalf of South Caro?
lina. To plant moro grain and less
cotton, and to sapplaut commercial
manures by home-made, as much as pos?
sible-these, we learn, were the views
that generally prevailed in the Conven?
tion. As the planters and farmers pre?
sent freely interchanged views and gave
their experience to each other, wo have
reason to believe that the occasion was
productive of good.
The desorintinns of the Washington
carnival, as given by the specials of tho
New York papers, tella a story of "un?
surpassed and unobjectionable frivolity."
The lowest estimate of tho numbers who
thronged Pennsylvania avenue was
50,000, and the decorations of tho build?
ings included every stitch of bunting in
the district, together with homo-made
flags, gay calicoes, Chinese lanterns, ?fcc.
There were several mile horse races on
the wood pavoment; a goat race, which
set ali the little boys and children in an
uproar; a foot race, at the end of which
the winner fainted and was carried into
a drug store, and a general exhibition of
teams, from the six-in-hand of Ucl inhold
down to the butcher and dog carts. As
the corporation ordinance regarding fast
driving had been suspended, there was
a.pretty lively kicking up of dust. Only
that and nothing moro. The President
sat on a hotel balcony most of tho day,
where ho was serenaded every fifteen
minutes by the Marine Band, boosted up
on a temporary platform on the adjacent
nor nor. At night tho wholo line was one
flood of light; calcium lanterns shot their
rays from the Capitol down along the
line and into the faces of at least a mile
of otosely packed people, while the illu?
mination of the buildings was fringed
with two miles of variegated Chinese
Easterns, strung along wires. Addition?
al burners on the street lamps added to
the general blaze. At the Treasury end
of the avenue there was a brilliant dis?
play of fire-works. The affair wound np
with the first of the three carnival balls,
in the new Corcoran Art Gallery build?
ing, which was the most handsomely
adorned ball room ever seep ia Washing?
ton. The floral decorations wound up
th? stairways entwinod paintings and
statuary, and added a charm to the
drapery. The President, Gen. Sherman,

glittering uniform, and the Diplomatic
If tho French war has resulted in any
benefit whatever to the world, it is by
increasing the resources of alimentation.
Animals heretofore rejected for human
food have been demonstrated to bo not
only suitable, but actually choice addi?
tions to the manu. Succulent dogs, de?
licious cats, and tender rodents, aro
spoken of by oxperieucod sybarites with
a gusto, born of good appetite, in the
most enthusiastic terms. Such revolu?
tions in gastronomic practice are? of
coursa, attended with many curious cir?
cumstances, and numberless are, there?
fore, the experiences and auecdotos of
thoHo inducted into tho new and enlarged
diet. We can, thereforo, appreciate the
feelings of the kind hearted lady spoken
of ir a recent letter from Paris, who,
through stress of hunger, gave up her
precious little lap-do^ Bijou to ber cook:
Bijou was killed; Bijou was cooked;
Bijou was eaton. And Bijou's mistress
was observed at dinner to pat Bijou's
bones aside on her plato mnchanically,
and was hoard to remark, with a sigh:
"Oh, how my dear little Bijou would
have enjoyed these bones!"
Tho national debt of Great Britain,
according to the last return, comprises
83,703,947,7-10, known as tho funded
debt. This amount is composed of
$1,978,119,470 consols. Si, 103,511,895
new consols, S530.913.235 reduced con
sols, and ?91,313,110 of smaller amounts
of stock. Tho unfunded debt amounts
to ?33,807,500. and ?13,153,815 is due to
tho Bank of Ireluud, and carries three
per cent, interest. Tho above statement
of the debt also includes ?55,075,500
owing to tho Bauk of England by tho
Government. In addition, there are
stocks of the colonies guaran teed by tho
Imperial Government, as, for instance,
the Dominion of Canada loan for $7,500,
000 at fonr por cont., and a Now Zealand
loan of ?2,250,000.
They have had in Puinesville, Oiiio,
what they call a "Greeley sapper. " Ouu
ilein was a monument which stood ut tho
upper eud of tho dining-room, lt was
built of tho complete files of the Weekly
Tribune, extending from 1811 to 1871,
and consisting of 1,534 numbers, tho
Tribune Almanac from 1813 to 1871, nod
all the various works which Mr. Greeley
has written. Tho whole formed u column
twenty by twenty-four inches square and
over seven feet in height, and was taste?
fully and appropriately trimmed with
the national colors and was surmounted
by a portrait of Mr. Greeley. Except
the last three volumes, tho entire sot of
Tribunes wu? owned by L. E. Miller,
who has been a regular subscriber since
the establishment of that puper.

LOVB GIFTS.-Love gift* should be of
iittlo intrinsic value; they should owe
their preciousness to the hand that gives.
The token of love shouid not, by its
beauty or costliness, distract tho atten
mta for one moment from tho meaning
ol the gift-heart speaking to heart, io
language eloquent though dumb. What
aro the objects we have gazed upon, and
kissed, mid wept over as priceless trea?
sure? A "pultry ring with a po*y," a
glovr, a triiu-lovu knot in hair or ribbon,
or, as likely us uot, a few faded flowers;
but is there oue who has loved who can?
not recall to mind the throb of ecstasy,
the glow of paradisaical bliss, with
which the first love-gift was received?
the silent messenger, bringing thc full
assurance of love's return? Tho youth
who has just obtained n lock of hair, or
a simple roso-bud may-be, ftnm his mis?
tress' hand, giveu after much pleading,
would he part with it for a rose of rubies
and gold? Would yonder girl, as ?he
sits in her chamber alone, turning on
her finger the slight ring that binda her
to him who bus won her maideu troth,
change it for a circlet of tho costliest
diamonds? Not for worlds!
Within a week or two a singular
achievement of the telegraph has occur?
red. A gentleman suddenly became ill
of pneumonia in Wushington City. His
physician, a gentleman of grout attain?
ments and fame, resided in New York,
and he was anxious that this phyMciuu
should be cousulted about his ouse. A
telegraph wire was, by his direction,
taken into his room, ?iud tho New York
doctor bciug summoned to thc telegraph
office tliere. tho Washington physician
attending tho patient informed him of
tho state of thc case, nnd even enabled
bira to feel his patient's pulse by causing
tho wire to vibrate as tho pulse did. The
case thus being thoroughly diagnosed in
New York, thu necessary proscriptions
wero sent thenoc to Washington. The
attack, though violent, soon yielded toi
tho treatment, ami the patient is now a
very cheerful convalescent. This is tho
first caso of tho kiud we lmve heard of.
It itt quite an interesting feat of tele?
A NEW FASHION.-A sharp correajirrnd
ent, who watches New York "society" us
a i ('creation, tells us that another noted
innovation is tho introduction of cigar?
ettes for ladies at a few of the fashiona?
ble dinners. Coming wi,th the coffee,
sud ou silver salvers lie tho dainty little
bunches, and white, jeweled fingers hold
tho fragrant Havanas with nonchalant
ease. Twenty years ago, only a few
married woman ventured to defy con?
ventionality; but now the various "isms"
and the broad sweep allowed to "reason"
form a more lax etiquette; therefore,
wonder ceases and surprise is mute.
Neuralgia is tho f asl) io nable epidemic,
for the cure of which smoking has been
recommended; therefore, during the
rainy days just passed, graceful rings

wax fainter in mauy luxurious boudoirs.

TDK LAW OP FIIIRTATIOK.-The legal
gentlemen have begun to lay down thc
"law of flirtation," and if tho opinions
of certain judges are to bo taken as con?
clusive, tho frolicsome und sentimental
young men and women of the day will
have to exercise considerable caution.
Chief Justice Parker, of Massachusetts,
announces the opinion of tho Supreme
Court of that State, that an engagement
"may be proved by those circumstances
which especially accompany such a con?
nection," and the Kentucky Court of
Appeals has declf?red that the mutuality
of an engagement may bo proved against
a young lady "by showing that she de?
meaned herself as if she concurred in or
approved tho young man's promises or
offer. It is not necessary that there
should be an express promise on either
POISONED GLOVES.-We have all heard
of food-adulteration and drink-adulte?
ration, says tho Now York Tribune, but
what does tho reader say to poisoned
gloves? The London Daily Meten calls
atti nt ion to tho fact that some gloves aro
dyed in such way us to bo poisonous to
the wearer. The case is given of a lady
who, after wearing several pairs, noticed
"a vesicular eruption*'at tho sides and
roots of tho nails. Investigation showed
that tho dye in which tho gloves hud
been dipped contained an arsenical suit.
It seems to bc perfectly true, whether wo
tread or not upon enchanted ground,
thut perils and snares beset us round.
We know there might bo poison in bread,
beer, house-paper, tea, nnd various
other things; but who ever thought,
now-a-duys at least, of poison in a pair

Tho villages of Garches and St. Cloud,
tho latter the seat of tho former famous
palace, have boen left in nttor min by
tho fire of the French and PrtiPsiau guns.
There is not a single habitable house
standing in cither. When the villagers
returned to them, it was with difficulty
that they could discover tho spots upon
which their homes onco stood. Princu
Napoleon's chateau at Menden was de?
stroyed ns to the roof and tho interior,
but tho facade is still standing. So far
as Plon-Plon is concerned, however, it

DEATH OF HON. JOHN T. MONEO E.-Wa
regret to state that this gentleman,
known all over the United States aa tho
patt tio Mayor of New Orleans, during
the late war, died suddenly yesterday.
He was a man of sterling integrity, de?
voted to the Sontb, and had thousands
of ?arm personal friends who will regret
to hear of his deconse. Siucc the war,

this city as stevedore. It will be remem?
bered that he was confined on Ship Is?

A WINE STOBT.-Tho Hov. Dr. Prime,
the venerable editor of the New York
Observer, who has been a famous traveler,
and has seen some things which fow
mortals have beheld, tolls the following
strange story, wbioh would seem almost
incredible if told by a less reliable man:
"I was in a region in Spain where wino
is more nbnndiint tim ri water. Wine,
good wine, better than is in common nee
in America, is sometimes used in great
quantities., instead of water, to mix mor?
tar with for building. A church was
pointed out to me that was built with
wine-made mortar, because they hud
great quantities on bund for which they
bad no sale, und it was cheaper to uso it
than to haul water a long WAy to the
building site. But there was little in?
temperance in that region."
A CHARTVAIU AND ITS RESULTS.-On

and Riiappod it nt tho crowd. The
charge exploded, instantly killing u

with him, and the box had a trap door,
j A heavy shipment of gold was to go East

Au old farmer named Jenuison, living
iu Wapello County, Iowa, recently came
into possession of a legacy of 810,000,
000, left him by a relativo in England,
which it was uecossnry for him to go

was hammering on a burn which he was

A CURIOUS LEOAL MODE.-A very cu?
rious mode of trying the title to land is
practiced in Hindost?n. Two holes are
dug in tho disputed spot, in each of
which tho plaintiff's and defendant's law?

there until one of them is tired, in which

The fancy jksting match to come off

Thc Chinese have some notions that
might be advantageously adopted by
Christians. The way they celebrate their
holidays is one of them. Tho first thing
they do is io pay off old debts and
i square accounts toa fraction. Money
matters having been thus adjusted, thay
next make up old quarrels, and shake
hands all round. Having thus got
square pecuniarily and socially, they eat,
drink and aro merry, finally winding up
with a sparkling discharge of Chinese
fire-crackers. This paying of debts and
tho making up of quarrels is certainly
