Mr. Turley, of McMinn, stated that
the committee virtually agreed to an
other report, but as it was not written
the chairman was expected to make a
verbal report. He dissented from the
report of the committee. He thought
that tlie old stockholders should sur
render their stock and tHke new stock
at -'i or 50 per cent. Then he was in
favor of paying the old premiums lir-t.
It lias been buirnested tluit Capt. Kicks
couldn't u outside of his trust, but he
thought an nearly all thecreditors were
of Kuoxvillo they would agree to hold
back to let these premiums lie paid.
Mr. Huiluker said that he had ex
amined the house, and thought it un
safe. Mr. Charlton stated that mechanics
had examined the building, and pro
nounced it secure.
Mr. Jones, of Greene, wanted to
know if all this talk was aecorcplish
iuir anything or not.
John M. Meek oil'ered the following
lirsolvcd, Jy this meeting, that the
Grangers of Kast Tennessee accept the
Fair Grounds on tlie following terms:
The Grangers agree to take the proper
ty, hold a fair, und if, after paying nil
the necessary expen-es nf uaid fair,
there should i em a in a r pi us of funds,
itshould he piid over ) the old Asso
ciation in liquidation o:' 'he outstand
ing debts; procidi d, iha' the old As
sociation agree to use siid surplus
amount in paying :h" premiums past
due and unpaid.
Mr. Churltoii made some explana
tioi' us to the circular lett.-r, Mid stated
that it was jul as lie undeistood it.
Though he udmitlcd that he preferred
the Association would buy the proper
ty. He thought if the farmers would
do their duty they could pay all the
debts in the first year. He felt satis
lied that tho citizens of Knoxville
would do their full duty. They had
given evidence this day of their wil
lingness to Bustaiii'theui. luey were
honorable men, honorable to u fault.
They had tried the Fair and could not
make it a success, and now want the
farmers to try it, and no body of men
had ever been offered a more golden
onortunitv. If the Order of l'atrous
of Husbandry cau not make a success
of this, her mission, she lias nnsseii
her mission. He thought they could
buy it and pay every dollar ot it,
Mr. Keller, of Knox county, thought
all they could do would be to accept
the proposition originally mane, rney
were not authorized to purchase it,
and could only accept the Grounds
run the Fair, and pay over the pro.
ceeds to the old Association.
Capt. Ricks explained to the Con
vention that If tlie gentlemen present
took charge of the ralrUrounds and
run them, unless they did it under the
charter, they would become responsi
ble for every dollar of debt they might
make. But they could take the old
charter, change the name and work
under its provisions. It was carefully
prepared, and was as liberal a charter
as could be gotten up. If the Gran
gers present organized uuder a charter,
they protected themselves from per
sona! responsibility. If they bought
this property under the proposition
made as stockholders, theije would be
no risk as some apprehended. This
large assemblage was proof that your
organization had faith and confidence
in their ability.
Mr. John M. MeeU withdrew Lis
motion, which he had made in lieu of
alt others, and stated that lie believed
that Mr Charlton's view of the matter
was the proper one. lie thought, after

Mr. J. Monroe Meek thought the ac
tion of taking stock was all premature
as the convention had not decided
upon the capital slock or how it
should he paid. The property though
onlv costing them $1,000 was worth
$10,000 and they should make their
Mr. Jiai lies thought that there hail
been enough gas und it was time for
work. It would lake money to run,
the Fair, and the way to do it is to take'
the stock and then elect their directors
and they could increase their stock
V. C. Dav, of Urudlcy county,
moved that the convention go into tlie
election of directors, one for each
county. He made an able speech in
support of his motion, showing that
such a proceeding alone would enlist
the entire larming communiiy or i-.ast
Tennessee. He presented his views in
such a forcible manner that the motion
carried, and the nomination of direc
tors was declared In orilcr.

:-whose earnest preaching at St. John's

He has within the lust six years built
a beautiful brick gotliic church, seat

St. James' Hall, in which husaeirls'
school uuder the direction of the Rev.
Dr. Mulhollind. It has a capacity for
fifty hoarders, and bus now some
sixty scholars, most of whom
are day scholar.-. In addition to this
a Chapel for the colored people has
been built where I In re are fifteen com
municants ; u d iy school and a regu
lar service on Sunday. All Ibis work
has been done by tlie Rector with u
small hand of helpers, for he has but
a hundred communicants. The whole I
parish is in elegant order and the work

a self denying hard working man can
do aided by nn earnest congregation.
The number of delegates present was

Many fanners cut wheat too

Wheat intended for seed ought to be
fully ripe before it is cut ; hut, that which

the " doughty state-,"' (out of tho milk.)

manv acres lo harvest, it is dillictilt to
nvoid cutting soini; a little too carle, or a
great deal too late.
So soon as the straw is sutllcii'iitlv

of wheat straw for forage need not com

Sheep are kept all winter on straw alone,

New York : und so are mares, colts and
cattle. Good barns, sheds and stables are
not so common as they ought to be, and
no fanner who has the means to make
these useful buildings should he without
them. They will pay a high interest on
their cost, greatly economize fodder, and
