Dr. W. \V. Mooro, presldent of the Unlon

made the response to the addicsaes of wui

part aa followa:
Accordlng to the last census, there are
53.235 natlves of North Carollna now llv?
lng In Vlrglnia. If that is a correct es
timato, and there Is every reasoii to be
lieve that the number is now larger rath
er than smaller, than lt was ln iW). lt
means that. besldes the scores of ua who
have tho delightful prlvllege of tespond
ing in person to the call ot our veno
rated mother to sather agaln under the
ancestral roof-tree, there are some fitty
thousand other sons and daughtera of
hers within the bounds of the Old Do
mlnlon, who thlnk no less tonderly and
proudly than we of tho good old State
that gavo ub blrth, whose hearts turn
wistfully to Greensboro to-day, and whose
memorles echo the stately muslc of Judgo

"Carollna! Carollna! Heavon's hless
lngs attend her!
Whlle we llvo we will cherish, protoct
nnd defend her;
Though the scorner may aneer at and
witlings defame her,
Our hearts swell with gladness when
cver we name her."
For these flfty thousand Vlrglnla-Caro

ever you may prefer to call them?and I
do 1101 btlleve thut any bottor brand of
elther Carolinians or Virginlans ovor

General Btadley T. Johnson, over whoao

in the Intoraata of absolute accuracy, it

Wo feel, then, that North Carolina
has contrlbuted no llttlo to tho upbulldlng

weanod from North Carolina, but we aro
thoroughly naturalized at Rlchmond. We
feel pcrfectly at home there? they ovon
