THE DELEGAT2ES WSTBUCTED.
The following resolution was then
ffered by Mr. John T. Duncan and
ananimously adopted without debate :
Resolved, That our delegates be in

to the establishment of an agricultural
nd mechanical college separate and

the reorganization of the agricultural
board in such manner as will put that

Mr. J. T. Duncan made a statement to
the convention in regard to the resolu
ions passed at the July meeting in regard
to the request of the convention to the
Board of Agriculture to postpone action
on the establishiment of the liperimnen
p.al Stations, but he did not have the
dates with hinm. We have received the
olowing letter from Mr. Duncan, which
we insert here:
MR. DUNCAN'S LETT'ER.
LIBERTY HALL, October 4th, 1837.
In reporting the action of the Board
of Agriculture with the regard to the
resolutions adopted at our Farmers'
meeting in July, I did not give you the
dates. I wish to do so now.
I say if the resglqtions wepe gt all de

of Agricu4jgre, they deserved more
If .( rememnber oorrectly, I mailed the
resolutions to Col. Butler Aug. 6th . See
retary L. A. Ransom writes me under
date of Sept. 28th that "the copy of the
resolutions wan laid .before the, Board of
Agriculture to-day.". There appears to
be no undue haste on the part of Col.
Butler in laying them before the
board-a lapse of fifty days or more.
My only- surprise is that in the hur ry
of executing the "'mandatory"' duty im
posed on this Board of Agriculture by
the Legislature-that of estgbishingk the

WILLIAM B. WHITNEY,
To all who appreciate operatic music,
and who have ears for singing, and who
do not expect professional acting by
amateur debutantes, was presented a
first class entertainment at the opera
house on Thursday night last. It was
decidedly a success. There was a good
audience present, and it was a .very at
tentive one. It is a difficult matter
to arrange an entertainment of that
character to please entirely a large,
critical audience, especially those many
would-be critics (?) of great minds and
those who always expect too much and
are consequently always disappointed.
We are not too easily pleased, and,
while we will not allow our impartiality
to get the better of our judgment, still
we wish to be fair in our criticism.
Therefore, taking into consideration the
limited time for rehearsals, the h:ste in
preparation, the "freshness" of some of
the performers and the difficulties undes
which they labored, we unhesitatingly
pronounce the entertainment first class.
There are those who are "nothing if not
critical," and if one should say a thing
was good they are ready to pass judg
ment upon his judgment.
The excellent programme was well
arranged and rendered in fine style.
The band opened the performance with
Herndon's beautiful andante and waltz,
"Vera." "Deep in this poor heart,"
and "Barcarole," respectively, were
sweetly sung, the former by Mrs. Rob
ertson, Mr. Moody and Dr. Jones; the
latter by Misses Metts and Rives, and
were roundly applauded, as in fact was
the entire programme. The instrumen
tal quartette-Miss Holbrook. Mrs. Rob
ertson, Messrs. Werber and Taylor
excelled all their previous renditions in
fine and difficdlt playing. Miss Annie
Cargill, in "The Flower Girl," was de
lightfully graceful and natural and her
voice well modulated. She was heartily
encored, and acknowledged the compli
ment by a simple but sufficient bow.
Thus did the audience show its respect
for Georgia. The song by Mes4rs. T. D.
Lake. 0. 74, Schumpert, Dr. Johnstone,
Me. Metts, S. B. Jones and Drs. Jones
and Kibler was as good as we care to
hear. Their voices have the ring of the
right metal. The cornet solo by Mr. J.
W. Taylor v as superb. Mrs. Robertson
in the next soprano solo exhibited the
power of her voice in the high keys, and
Miss Metts, Miss Lelia Rives and Miss
Sallie Metts, in a pretty little song,
showed that they could trill in the opera
as well as sing in a choir. The last song
was sung by all the voices, male and
female, supplemented by Miss Alma
% erber, and was warmly received.
Thus ended the first part.
The second part of the programme,
after allowing time for those of the
audience, who desired so to do, to go
out and see if the night was still clear,
consisted of the farce of Slasher and
Crasher, with Dr. E. C. Jones as Blow
hard, Mr. A. J. Sproles as Slasher, Mr.
John W. Earheardt as Crasher, Mr. B.
B. Davis as Brown, Mr. M. L. Spearman
as Dinah Blowhard, and Master Pierre
Mazyck as Rosa.
Dr. Jones was inimitable in the cbar
acter of old Blowhard; Mr. Sproles, in
his conception of Mr. Slasher, carried it
out to the letter and repeatedly brought
down the house with his original local
isms, and gave evidence of genuine tal
ent as a comedian; Mr. Earheardt per
formed the part of Crasher with as
much naturalness and ease as if he had
been accustomed to the stage instead
of tins being his first appearance be
fore the footlights; Mr. Davis did not
have much to do on the part of Brown,
and did not have a chance to show all
his ability to advantage, but what he
did was -done with neatness and dis
patch; Mr. Spearnman made a good look
ing Dinah and Pierre Mazyck really
looked like a pretty little black-haired
girl. It is not an easy thing for a man
or boy to wear dresses and bangs, etc.,
and to imitate a be(s)witching girl, but
those two "got through" admirably well.
While the play centered of course on
Messrs. Slasher & Crasher, we know the
older ones will not object to our picking
up Pierre and saying that he is entitled
to a big slice "of the cake."
Gross receipts, $95.00.
It would not be amiss to repeat the
play at Prosperity and Clinton.
