Wasiiixgtok, Nov. 1. Large purchases
of Confederate bonds are now being made
here by leading brokers to fill the orders
of English customers. The average price
paid to-day ia about $2 for each $1,000 of
bouds. Most of the securities bought here
come from Virginia, North Carolina and
Maryland, and it is a noticeable fact that
holders seem quite as readvto sell as
brokers are to buy. There is little doubt
but this purchasing movement grows out
of the deposit made by the officers of the
Confederate States during the late war of
$800,000 in the Bank of England, and,
possibly, that this sum, which still lies
there unclaimed, may be divided pro rata
among the holders of Confederate securi
ties. It is not improbable" that the ques-

North Carolina at the Atlanta Exposition.
Those who have been to Atlanta speak
in high praise of the exhibit of North
Carolina products. The Raleigh Observer
has had a conversation with Gov. Jarvis.
Commissioner. McGehee and F. TT Rna-
bee, Esq., who have just returned from
Atlanta, and speaks in the following
cheering manner of the display made by
the "Old North State" :
"While much is on exhibition, vet new
articles go to Atlanta from North Caro-
ma every day. In response to an inauirv
as to the specially meritorious features of
tne aispiay made by the Department of
Agriculture, the Commissioner said they
were those of ores, minerals, building
stones, woods, grains, marls, jute, wines,
yellow tobacco, cotton, cotton and woolen
fabrics and silk.
There are, as has been before stated.
two North Carolina exhibits, ear.h of
about the same size, one by the Depart
ment of Agriculture, the other bv the
Richmond & Danville Railroad. These
act in perfect concert. The distinctive
display of the Department covers some
1,500 feet. The peculiarity of it is its
vast range of minerals and metals, for
while some States show large specimens
of a few things only, the aim of our de
partment has been not to show great
masses, but just enough to indicate the
extent to which minerals, etc., occur and
their quality. Many of our minerals have
a purely scientific value. These are not
shown, but only those which are proper
in an industrial exposition, as showing
sources of immediate wealth.
The exhibit of grains is especially note
worthy. It is not made for quantity, but
for quality. That of wheat attracts un
usual attention for marked excellence.
Repeated inquiries for the North Carolina
wheat, for seed, are made. Alamance,
Mecklenburg, and Cabarrus show the
best specimens, the first named county
taking precedence perhaps, though some
from Cabarrus weighs sixty pounds to the
bushel. .Lowland rice is shown in grain
and in tne shear, and is as choice as the
choicest. Our rice industry is constantly
being developed. Upland rice will also
be exhibited. The exhibit of corn is also
as yet incomplete, but will be a remarka
bly fine one.
The pre-eminent exhibit is that of our
famous yellow leaf, "bright" tobacco.
This is shown from no less than ten coun
ties, embracing the whole "golden belt"
extending from Madison to Granville. In
this North Carolina stands incontestably
alone. At least one hundred specimens
Of marbles and granite building stones
there are ten choice specimens, all highly
polished. The more beautiful marbles are
from Cherokee, Macon and Swain coun
ties. The extreme beauty of these at
tracts attention. The famous mill stones
from Moore county, said to be the equal
of any in the world, are noteworthy. It
is said that in Moore one of these stones
has been in use a hundred years.
Corundum, that rare and valuable min
eral, is shown in its choicest condition.
This and the mica exhibit are among the
finest ever made in the world and are dis
tinctively North Carolinian. More Corun
dum is mined here than in all the other
states. here are no less than 56 mica
mines of importance, and this State is al
most the sole source of supply.
Of woods no less than 112 varieties are
admirably exhibited. These are from the
lve oak of our coast to the white pine and
balsam of our mountains. This display
of wood is another feature of the exhibi
tion, for no State comes near it in extent,
variety or beauty.
In wines we are likewise unapproached
and unapproachable. Green, Garrett and
Hunt also have splendid specimens of
champage, claret, hock, port, etc., as well
as cognac brandy, which only needs age
to make it equal to that of France. This
wine exhibit is commented upon by every
visitor to the exposition. In all some ten
varieties are shown. The elegance of the
display equals its excellence, lhere are
numberless inquiries about our wines, par
ticularly by the .Northern visitors.
In cotton goods the display is admira
ble, and will bear comparison with that
of any State. The products of ten mills
The department will have on exhibition
ten bales of cotton, each thought worthy
to compete for the great prize of $1,000,

That Railroad Again.
As there has been bo much talk for the
past six months about the location of the
proposed Railroad from Winston south
(known as the North Carolina Midland)
and several surveys made, the following
statement of the result of a meeting of
the Stockholders at Winston on the 25th
of October, may surprise some but it
certainly settles the location of the Road
to Moore8ville :
" The stockholders of the North Caro
lina Midland Railroad Company had a
meeting at Winston, N. C, on the 25th.
John S. Barbour was re-elected president,
J. T. Morehead, vice president; also the
old board of directors with J. Wilcox
Brown, C. T. Holland and J. T. Coward
added to the board. The stockholders
passed resolutions to make county sub
scriptions of bonds available for the con
struction of the road, and authorized Presi
dent Barbour to execute a mortgage on the
road bed and property of the company for
the same purposes. The director lo
cated the line of the road as far south
as Mooresville. having already located
it lrom the

In regard to the Stockholders meeting,
the Winston Leader of Nov. 1st gives the
following more correct information :
"A meeting of the stockholders of the
North Carolina Midland Railroad was held
in Winston ou Tuesday and Wednesday
last. Hon. J. S. Barbour, the President
ol the road, Col Morehead, the Vice-President,
the Board of Directors . and a large
number of the stockholders, were present.
Work was suspended upon the line, owing
to the fact that some localities failed, or
refused, to make their subscriptions
promptly, and the money from these
sources was inaccessible; and other locali
ties having paid their instalments, it was
thought inadvisable, as we snrmised
a few weeks ago, to continue the
work, with this state of affairs existing.
The meeting held here was harmon
ious and a spirit of determination evinced
to prosecute the work at the earliest possi
ble moment. In order to more readily ne
gotiate lor the sale of the bonds, corpora
tions, townships and counties are request
ed to put the bonds, to the full extend of
their subscriptions, in the bands of the
Treasurer. It was thought unadvisable
to offer them in instalments, but in bulk.
The Directors were instructed to locate the
road the entire line. The President and
the Directors were given authority
to issue bonds to an amount not exceeding
$20,000 per mile on the whole length of
road, bearing not more than 6 per cent.
interest, and to run for a period not ex
ceeding 30 years from date. They were
also empowered to execute the necessary
mortgage or deed of trust upon the prop
erty and franchises of the company to se
cure the payment of the same. It is now
confidently believed that the road will
be built. The annual election of officers
resulted in the re-election of the former
ones with the addition of three new Direc
tors to represent the interest of the Va.

One of the notable events of Govern

the two suits of clothes manufactured by
the Williamantic Linen Company. One
was worn by Gov. Colquitt at a reception
the same day, and the other by Gov.
Bigelow. It was a wonderful exhibition
and attracted the attention of the whole
attendance. It was an act that illustrates

In half an hour it left the slubber, and in

The Home and Democrat
an editorial last week on the
North Carolina," in which the Charlotte
Observer discerns the ' ear marks of Mr.
Yates, former editor of the Democrat."
We do not know what peculiar marks are
necessary to imagine the article in ques
tion belonged to Mr. Yates, but it only
requires some very long ears to make the
figure complete to suppose no one else
would criticise the proceedings of the
"Press Association." Mr. Yates did not
write the article in the Home and Dem
ocrat on the press of North Carolina, and
the assertion of Col. Jones to that effect
was done without sufficient knowledge of
facts to state the truth of the matter. We
here state to avoid future misunderstand
ing, we write and assume all the responsi
bility of whatever matter is contained in
the editorial columns of this paper but to
convey the idea we are assisted in penning
them is a conspicuous " ear mark" of the
Observer s article.
In our columns we give our personal
views on all questions and they are not
held open to which ever party will offer
the largest sum.
From the Observer we have learned the
history of this matter, and will add if the

of the Whitney cotton gin, bearing the
date 1793, has been added to the curios of
the Will'fmantic cotton exhibits. Another
relic, found in the Wheeler & Wilson
sewing machine section, is one of their
machines bearing the legend : 'One of the
oldest sewiner machines in the world.
The date of its make is 1850. It has been
in constant use ever since, has been' run
over thirty years, and broken only thirteen
needles. - Thousands of garments for Con
federate soldiers were made with it with
only one needle. This needle was used
eight years. The exhibitors of this old
machine challenge any shuttle machine in
the world for a trial of skill with it. at a
rate of 1,500 stitches per' minuted The
sewing machine exhibits are 'extremely
attractive. Several companies are rep
resented, who exhibit not only machines
and sDecimens of work, but also show
people ordering them to pay no rent. In
consequence ot tnis aaaress, tne rmtisn

treasonable and has forbid the people at
tending any future meetings.
