Death of Cl. Robert Moorman.
With saddest feelings we record the
death of Col. R. Mourman, which
event occurred at his residence on las
Sabbath; just as the bells were chim
ing for morning service. It was one
of the hours that he most loved, and
,hich dui-ing a long life of christian
experieuce, was never [eected-and
now it the close of his probation,
wxhile ths.hdll ' 'Uging - out - th
summons for the .li. .ng to. enter th
church below, his spirit freed from
its earthly tenement winged its flight
to the great Church above. He died
unconscious, and to all appearance the
familiar and loved sound did not reach
his dulled ears. A good man has
fallen, an eminent and loved citizen iis
no more; a pillar of strength is taken
from the elurch, a family is bereaved.
and a community suffers a great loss.
No better man, more'eoDscientious, o
more identified with the social, politi
cal and religious interests of Ne wber
ry ever lived, and we sorrow not with
common sorrow, for we feel that his
deathis'a calamity. We cannot af
ford to lose such. men now. Col
Moorman was born near Fish Dam,
Union County, October the 22d, 1814.
,Atan'early pera-ioi life he moved
to this County, and-for many years he
lived in the town, for the most part of
which he was engaged in mercantile
pursuits. As a public man our data
thows that in 1848 he was elected to
the Legislature for two years, and was
re-elected in 1850 for auother term.
In 1842 he was elected to the Stat
-Senate for four years, but in conse
quence of failing health, resigned tha
important trust in the third year..I
1860 was-sent to the State Conven
tion, in company with Col. S. Fair
Jos. Caidwell and J. P. Kinard, an

fit of a counsel which invariably wa.
full of wisdom and mature delibera

be said and with truth that he was

himn in his christian charater-as a
-perfect, devout man, in whom there
was no spot or blemish, for in him the
profession of religion was no idle

bright reward, he has died.. Who can
say that a crowa'of' rejoicing is not
his, and that now while we are wrap

is already in the in imeut of a blissful

and many, but -he bore- them with

The Financial Question.
The scarcity of money continues to
be Lhe- subject of most common dis
cussion. There seems, however, to be
a quieter feeling among bankers, and
most men think that the crisis ha:
been reached. If this is the case the
financial disease will have proved it
self less fatal than perhaps-in any other
-instance in which it has' visited thi.:
country. Wherrtrade to a great ex
tent ceases ini the large commxercial
entr rs, the entire country to a greater
or less degree must be affected. . Those
districts whieh are stricitly agricultu
ral will be the smallest sufferers. As
we have heretofore said, the cotton re.
mai.ns in the country,and it must soon.
er or later bring home the money.
In the meantime, the merchant who
has purchased a large stock of goods.
andi who may be carrying 2~0 to $30.
000 in liens upon the crop which
ought now to be coming in rapidly.
will feel most senisibly the present
pressure. lie is not, however, in any
sense~ in the c'ndition of the Northern
merchant, who may have had his mnoni
~y in the hands of parties who have
been speculating in imaginary rail
road stocks ; for the latter has lost all
-while the former still has under his
very eye the crop which will most eer.
tainly reimburse him for the advances
he has 'made. The only thing is he
must be patient. He must wait ;
there is no alternative. The European
demand for cotton must, in a m~onth
or so at farthest. move the crop, and
that too at a fair price. Let the mer
chant then take heart-"keep a stiff

men who helped to make'their crops.
If they would do otherwise, they are
powerless, from the fact. that their
present needs are too pressing. This
is the ease as it stands at present
and when this difficulty is over.
then let the farmers come together.
and on the strength which unity gives.

them determine to hold their cotton.
and demand their price. Now it is
impossible to do so, for tktey must first
become independent. The panic is

It may not perhaps 'be generally

4ieot, that either in the selling or buy
