by a young Chicago lawyer. Mr.
Davis insisted that he should re

Dining the evening the conversa
tion turned upon the war. and Mr.
Davis talked freely upon all sub
jects that were brought up.
"What is the Southern estimate
of the 1'cdeial Generals!" inquired
I cannot give you the Southern
estimate," Mr. Davis replied. 'T
can give you my own estimate."
What do you think of Grant?"
Grant." he said, "was largely a
cieat ure ot circumstances. 1 re
member that the first time I met
Grant was when he was stationed
on the Pacific Coast as a Lieuten
ant. 1 was then Secretary of War.
He was charged with drunkenness
and neglect of duty. I gave him
his choice between standing trial
and resigning. He resigned. I
knew that he would. Gen. Grant
was a great military commander.
He was very tenacious, lie fought
a battle as a matter of business.
Men were mere cogs in the wheel.
All the men anil means he wanted
were placed at his command, and
he had every advantage, lie would
have been discharged from the
Airnyofthe Potomac if it had not
been that too many changes had
already taken dace in the army."
-What is your estimate of Gen.
Sherman was asked.
"Sherman." Mr. Davis said, "was
looked upon in the South as Alaric
w as by tin-Komans. He was their
scourge of God.' He was cruel,
yet he was a great strategist."
"Vis," interrupted Miss Davis,
"he was an inhuman monster.
What he did not use he destroyed."
Sherman hesitated," Mr. Davis
continued, "for a long time between
joining the Confederate army and
the kiiiiiii army. We were uncer
tain w hich he would do. He finally
joined the Pnion army, thinking. I
suppose, that more could be gained
My idea," remarked Mr. Davis,
:- that Meade was the most skilful
(lei. end in t he Federal army. Gen.
Lei once said to me that he could
understand the movements of all
t he Generals in the F'ederal army
e.i-ierthan those of Gen. Meade.
Th above Meade never allowed

At ihe el se of .another year of '.he
uhli s.-le, 1, Is of Cinven county it be
comes my (bitj- as a matter of public
inforinutinn. to submit my ollieial st.Oe
rmnt of tic edueatioicil work ib.ne
ilui inf; tlie lust term.
Since the liret Monday of lust AukiK
I have exaniineil into tlie iniabfieations
and renewed tlie certificates of s i
teacliers. iio wliite ami "d colore I. ' if
those. -11 obtained the first Kraile. L'."i tlie
second, and la t ho third. We have
op rateil (luring tlie year lb' schools, ey
while and eli colored. Nutwitlistanil
ing tlie last Legislature made no finan
cial provision for the visitation of the
schools, and s"rmeii to intend specially
to disable and prohibit the superintend
ent from performing this most import
ant part of Ids work. I liave felt il my
duty personally to visit and inspect
every school district in the county. I
am gratified to be able to say t bat ou 1
progress has been steadily forward and
improved. Tlie standard of scholarship
and character among our teaelinrs is
constantly improving. The people of
the country districts are everywhere
b.-iiie; aroused on the subject of educa
tion. I have delivered public addresses
wherever I could get an audience.
.Study, diligence, painstaking appli
cation are everywhere the watchwords
of teachers and children. We
have had no division or strife among ;
our school officials, but the greatest
concord and harmony from first to last.
Although we have had only about S'-S.OOO '
to distribute among 02 schools, we have
continued the most of them for a term
of three months, and many of them for
four. Nearly every school district. 1
through the admirable wisdom and
energy of our school committees, is now
fitted out with new and excellent school
houses, which are the property of the
county. I desire especially to call jour
attention to the well-conducted graded
schools of this city. I do not consider
them perfect by any means, but we in
tend that they shall approach perfection
before we are through with them. The
white school under Professor Thomas,
and the colored under Mr. Savage, have
each ab ut "iUO scholars, the principals
and teachers are competent and faithful,
good work is constantly being done,
and success is the only condition sought
or acknowledged in either. By the be
ginning of another school year, the
white graded school expects to be
lodged in a magnificent new building.
And if the Blair school bill shall have
passed through tlie House of Represen
tatives, we expect in the (iood l'luii
denee of Cod to see the daw n of a
brighter day for the school interests of
North ( 'arolina.

Ml'.. Epitok: Thinking that you
would like to hear a little trom (ieorgii
by on" of your old North Carolinians. I
will endeavor to give you a few fai ls
concerning farming. Raw milling, etc.
The f armers, when breaking up land,
use a plow something similar to our ."".
only that the point and all is casted in
one whole piece. After breaking up
the hinds thiy run oif their rows from
lit to s? feet apart, when the corn is up
a little they use a little thing to side it
about 3j inches wide, like we used to use
for opening the row forcotton seed when
sown with hand. All their plows are
in the same shape, only larger. Corn
now is from If to -J0 inches tall. Upon
an average thev make about twehe
bushels per acre. It is worth 'JO cent
cash, si .25 on time, per bushel. Farm
ci's s.iy that they make a pl'-nty every
other j ear and next year fad. This i. .1
year of plenty, as they failed last year.
Don't make any rice. Cotton is planted
in our old style. An average crop 1-two-thirds
bale per acre. fer
tilizer is used extensively. Kainit is
but very little known of here,
and marl, tie ie i none at all. Saw
mills are tiii -k.tr lhan churches an 1
h )ol bouses .-di put together. Turpen
tine, stills are ab mt the same. Th. re i
but very little whi-ki'3' sold bi le, only
about one half of the counties are al
lowed to sell 11. though there is 11 great
deal of it dr. 01k everywhere, it 1

There is one null .lain ab u t two miles
from Macon that is KM) miles long. I
noticed a small stream of water a few
in rnmgs a-o that was running very

about it and was tol I that a great many
