of the Confederate memorial day surpassed
that of any previous year. All business
was susjiended at 2 o'clock, p. M. The
procession formed at 4 p. M., consisting of
ex-Confederate officers, soldiers and sail
ors, cadets of Cape Fear Academy, memo
rial associations, schools and other bodies,
and proceeded to the cemetery, where they
were addressed by Gen. R. E. Colston. It
is estimated that 2,000 persons were on the
ground.- After the address and other ap
propriate ceremonies, the graves of the
Confederate dead were handsomely deco
rated with flowers and evergreens. In the
procession, accompanied by his wife, was

Still Another. An industrious color
ed man named Ross Sparks was murder
ed in a most brutal and shocking manner
on Saturday night last, some nine or ten
miles north of town. As we have neara
the particulars they are as follows: The
man was on the : creek fishing when his
horse escaped from him and he went in
pursuit in the direction of his horse. Af
ter he had cone half mile a number of guns
were heard to fire and a man was heard to

from which we learn that Ross had gone

and had gone about one half mile when
the shooting was done. He had one shot

Burning of a Railroad Train. We
learn that the eastward-bound passenger
and mail train of the West Wisconsin
Railroad was burned, while nearing To
mah, Tuesday evening. The engineer no
ticed several large wood-piles along the
track on fire, but the discovery was made
so late that no alternative remained but to
run the gauntlet of the fiery track. Put
ting on full force of steam, the engineer
braved ihe ordeal ; but, unfortunately, the
heat had warped the rails and the fire had
burned the ties, and in the midst of the
flames the train ran from tho track. It
consisted of locomotive, tender, baggage,
two passenger and two freight cars. The
locomotive, and tender were pulled out of
the way of danger, and the passenger car
in the rear was at once hauled out, the
railroad men and passengers working en
ergetically, and against every disadvan
tage. The baggage car,' with contents, one
Eassenger car and two freight cars were
urned. The track was at once repaired and
new titoek put on, so that no delay was ex
perienced in the trains on the road. The
passenger car burned was a second class
and the two freight cars were empty, and
on this trip there was only a small amount
of baggage, a small mail and a limited
amount of express matter. The loss, so far
as known, is small. Milwaukie Wis.)

weeks ago last Sunday, LMfKennedyA with
out the knowledge of the Trustees of the
Church, invited Mr. Bays to preach there. .. The
announcement was made "and the people turned
out and heard him respectfully. ' The whole
thing passed, off and nothing-more was said
about it Some time -last week .the Trustees
learned that Mr. Kennedy had again invited
Mr. Bays to preach in their Church; As he had
never asked them for the use of thcX'huicb, they
thought it rather cool.
"At a meeting of the Trustees held on last Sat
urday, it was unanimously decided that Mr.
Bays should be notified that it wag noto-greea-
ble that he should" use the Church, and that
Mr. Kennedy had mrauthority to invite him
therei When Sunday morning came, the mem
bers of the Church met and awaited Mr. Bays'
coming, as soon as no came ne was quietly
notified of the action of the Trustees. He
promptly replied that he did not wish to preach
there if the people did not want to hear him,
and went off. Our informant says there, was no
barricading of doors -or windows withr benches,
nor any arriving nor preparing for trouble. No
violence was manifested, as none was called for.
The whole transaction at the Church was order
