Cars at Thomasville
   Though a week or two behind the novelty of the first arrival of the cars at Thomasville, on the Savannah{, Albany} & Gulf Railroad, we now make amends by alluding to the fact, and congratulating our many friends in that section upon the facilities they enjoy in communicating with the seaboard, and thus greatly enhancing the value of their property. Thomas, Brooks, Decatur and other counties penetrated by the railway, will compete for preeminence in Southern Georgia in the great staple of the South, and also in the intelligence of their citizens.
