Governor Hill in AtlantaAtlanta,
Ga., October 16.?The reception to Governor Hill at the Piedmont Exposition to-day was only equalled by that given President Clevelaud two years ago. A hundred thousand people were on the grounds. At 1 p. m. Governor Hill and party arrived and made a tour of the buildings. At 2 o'clock Senator Colquitt introduced Governor Hill to the multitude, and the Governor bo-Jin his address, saying: "badiisund gentlemen: In behalf of the great State of which I am proud to be a represcn'-tive, and for , ?c_ WlllCll ID'S IvlllU ^divii \ji \*>jteem and hospitality is intended, f wish to thank you most cordially.

He touched, as no orator in the generation since '.he . war has touched, a chord of sympa' thy and charity whose sound vibrated from Maine to California, and the echoes of whose silv ry tones have not yet. died away. He told us .merely what we knew, but what we never before fully appreciated, lie told us that the war was over?and this we knew, but never felt so vivid, ly as when we heard his eloquent assurance of the Son -If a reconciliation to her new conditions. I am e!>d that you have given me this opportunity to see the South under its new conditions?to see for invseli what you have accomplished in this struggle of twenty-five years, t? feel tbe spirit of progress which has been breathed into this new land of liberty, and to carry back, perhaps, a broader idea of our common interests. 1 am glad that in this exposition; nercin are collected the best pro duets of the industries of six vigorous States, 1 am able in the briel time that 1 am to be with you t > get a comprehensive idea of what the whole South is doing.? Columbia Register. The Agricultural Experiment Station tit Spartanburg Burned. Spabtanburo, October 17.?[Special to the Register ]?Tiie State Experimetal Station in this city, under the management of ex-Senator Wofford, was burned to-dry at 3 o'clock. The large two-story i, use was used by Mr. Wofford as a barn and gin house. When the fire was first discovered it was small, but everything being very dry the spread was remarkably rapid, and before anything could be done the whole house was a mass of Hame. A few head of horses in the born were by quick work saved, b> t the contents, with the exception of a few bales of badly damaged cotton, were a complete loss. The house contained 1,500 5^ bushels seed,-GO bushels peas, 40 bushels wheat and a large amount of provender. A fact especially n*> ieeable was that the j-ite bagging burned much more raj.i My than the cotton bagging. Gojd authority says that had several bales been packed in cotton tbat were wrapped in jute, t'<ey could have been saved. It toi k hard work to 8wo the residence of \ir. WoOorl nn l had not the wind been Mo* in.: fr??m the op posite direction the house wouni hn e share! the fate or the experimental station. The loss is stimat." 1 at between $2,500 and $3,000; insurance $800. The house being on the outskirts of the city, the lire department was unable to render assistance. The amount of insurance, it is believed, will rebuild the house. Almost Buried Alive. Montreal, October 15?Anguste Archambault, a farmer of Coaticooko a town near Montreal, narrowly escaped being buried alive yesterday. Archambault, who is well otT, had been seriously ill for some weeks with supposed typhoid fever. Friday night he began to sink rapidly and early Saturday all signs of life ceased, and the doctor pronounced him dead. The usual wake was held, and yesterday being fixed upon for burying the supposed deceased, the remains were taken to the village churcl and afterward t> t he graveyard The friends of the farmer wt-r< gathered around the grave, ink , . - v _.n.- 5 1 which me c<jui'i in.-iii*: luncitu when all were startled by hearing groan from it.

A very large majority of the people of the Southern and Western States of the , American Union are agriculturists; and , the lime will never come when it will not | be so, for the reason that no where else on I the earth arc soil and climate so favorable 1 for the production of all that feeds and clothes the world. They aro the great stand-by of any country. They are the burden-bearers. They not. only support all other callings, but they aro the conservators of society. Xo part of the population of any country arc so indispensable as the agriculturists. Then, why should they not | orguniz.'? .Merchants, bankers, manufacturers. tradesmen, doctors, lawyers, teach-, ers and, in some instances, even preachers have their chambers of commerce, exchanges, associations and unions. But the farmers?they, the product, of whose toil is necessary to the comfortable existence of ell others?are practically without organization. With all of the appliances and opportunities which the spirit and ge,nius of the nineteenth century have placed within their reach, they adhere to the methods < f their ancestors, the early settlers of this country. Nothing is so humiliating as the attitude of fanners in their dealings with the rest of mankind. Though they are the real lords of the land?"their country's pride"?they are but little better than beggars, With them it is: What will you j tali for what you would sell us? But what will you </n'f for what we would sell you? It is singular that nobody else in the world ! I asks the latter question. And it is also singular 1 hat the form of the question ' changes as ?pon as their products leave their hands. The Southern farmer hauls his 00(1011 to the market, and, after getting ; it "out," (ft thing lie would not presume to I do himself,) lie proceeds to "try the mar' ket"' ?ti> hunt for a purchaser. Ilis cotton ' i passes into other hands, and at once there j is a demand for it?purchasers not waiting to bo sought out, but ready and anxious i to buy at such prices as the market may , warrant. The Western farmer asks of ' I , i those with-whom he deals: What will you J give me for my corn, bacon and flour?? While his brother of the South inquires of those with whom he deals whether he can ; purchase the same articles on time at any price, and secure the payment of the pur'! chase money thereof, amounting frequently to an advance of f>. nr-fiths of one hundred per cent, upon cost, by a lien upon all iof his crops, and a mortgage of his home and farm, horse and mule, wagon and cart, and cow and calf, in use and not in I este. The mortgage would doubtless also include the wife and little ones, if the law allowed it. Whether it is due to excessive taxation, to the oppression of the lien law and credit system, the iniquities of the tariff, or to any or all of these, or other causes, the fact stands out that the agriculturists of the country, and particularly of the South, are i not prospering, but are growing poorer as i the years go by. How to improve their con-J dition, should be the all-absorbing ques-l mL U'""i M nn<l nrn flnslhf. I > 11011.

They may not be able to discover and cut off root and branch all the causes of their impoverishment, but , by organizing, and holding communion j with one another and with their friends io | other loraities?-by standing together as j one mail?they can do much towards ami| horating their condition. They can intro| ducc and devclope different ut.d mote economical methods of furming; they c .n promote personal integrity, and foster a spirit of tnauly self-reliance that will laugh at lien laws and credit systems; they can, by united action, bid defiance to trusts, and all othor combinations against humanity; | they can do so much to increase the prices of the urticles that they sell, and to reduce the prices of those that they buy. It is to be hoped, then, that the day is not far distant when the agriculturalists ' of the country shall be thoroughly organ' ized?not for the purpose of making war upon those engaged in other pursuits whose dealings are legitimate and proper; | not for the promotion of the political aspirations of demagogues, place-hunters and I.,,* fnp flmir nwii nnil tllfiir , LllUC-dCI U'19* *stiu XV*. v**v??

Let L the work of orgauization go on; let the real objects be kept steadily in view; and tho | time will come when the improved condi. tion of our farmers will not only be seen . in the increased comforts and happiness of i their own homes, but will be felt and appreciated in all the walks of life. For ; nothing is truer than that, as are the > farmers., so are the rest of mankind. , When they are blessed with abundance, t the world shutes with them the blessing, t When they suffer, the world groans. Everybody Will Come. ; Major Willis returned yesterday - from New York, whither he had gone several dujs ago on business. The Major had nothing especial to report concerning his trip, but he is f very enthusiastic about the Gala . Week which he savs will be the i largest yet, as far as crowds are con. cerned. It looks as if every family t in the country will 9end some repf resentative. The general advertisj ing given the festival seems destined . to bear abundant fruit. Another gentleman, a chairman of j one of the committees, has received . a letter from Asheville in which the . writer stated that the South Carolina } contingent in that city, and a numi ber of northern people there, were j contemplating taking in the festivi , ties. They had doubts as to the ) amount of the fare to Charleston and asked for information. Inquiring at the ticket office yesterday elicited the fact that the fare for the round trip , from Asheville would be $5.90, but in order to secure this reduction, , tickets must be bought on the openIing day, November 4. The tickets will be tood to return for niuo days. ?Budget, 20th. [Communicated.] The DeKalh Cotton Factory. Are the people of this community going to let the Cotton Factory project go by defanlt ? This is a s*riou6 question. The first instalment of*20 per cent was called in on the 15th, and while the result ought to have been 810,000. it fell short by nearly $2.000?which $2,000 represents $10,000 of stock. Now, if the 850,000 is not made up. 85,000 promised conditionally, will be also lost, which will leave ouly $35,000. VVi at are we to do * The answer is plain.? When we promise to do anything? when we subscribe our names to an important list like the subscription list of a Cotton Factory, something that we need so badly?why it is our bounden and sound duty to perform what we promise- If some one who have been talking Cotton Factory ?-ven ad nauseum, fail to act when the time comes, it is shown that they can not be depended upon on ot or and less important occasions; aud, il I they do not p iy, it is the duty of others, under the existing circumstances, to make up the deficiency.. For the sake of our community, and our business, let us carry this project through, and not let the outside world say that there is no life in Camden. Outsiders will deride and sneer at us, and t^ose members of the commun ty who have heretofore stood up for old Camden on all occasions will get sick of talking of false hopes, and act accordingly. i.et all stop and think what a seri ous blow this failure will be, and don't let us again mention the word failure, but all go to work and raise the lacking funds It is not too late. Pay up a' once and let the charter bo obtained. If we can't get a Factory on these easy terms, how will any sort of Factory - ? ?" rt l o or mill ever be ounc in uaniuen r It is useless to explain the advantages of a Factory, for no one will dein' that is what we need. Pro Bono Publico. Deatli Ends a Slimier Case. Abbeville, Oct. 17. John T. Lyon, who was indicted for the murder of L. Mabry, and whose case was called in oourt yesterday and continued on account of the critical illness of the defendant, died in jail here at 1 o'clock this morning, of nervous prostration.? Lyon was 62 years of age. Ho was a deacon in the Presbyterian church, and had many friends and relatives throughout the county. A widow survives him.?Col. Register. Roasted in the Flumes. Mobile, Ala., October 19.?A special to the Register from Greenville, Ala., says: Early this morning a quarrel between a negro and a young white man named Roberts, connected with Hurk's horse show, resulted in the negro pouring gasoline over Roberts. Another uegro touched off the fluid with a lamp, and in an instant Roberts was enveloped in flame. He ran wildly up and down the main street of the town, but th- re was no one awake, and he was literally roasted alive. When discovered he was in a critical condition and medical attention was given. One of the negroes has been arrested, the other escaped. The pine straw fibre factory at Knstover, Richland County, has recently gotten oat a substitute fur jute bagging. It is a combinati u [of pine straw and cotton, and is said to be as heavy as jute and equally as strong, and costs only nine cents a yard. Several bales clad in this new covering have been sold in Columbia, and experienced cotton men there have pronounced it to be fclie best substitute yet found. v SSSiiS =. 1/oloohln I onrl fnr ^!olo vaiuauiG luiiu iui uuiu.
