fBcportcd for the Standrrd. r
Baptist Sunday School Celebration.
Were we gifted with the art of poesy, we
should ha.vc a theme worthy the most sweet
ly flowing numbers, in the Sunday School
celebration which came off at Wake Forest
College, on Friday last, participated in by
the schools lelonging to the Iiaptist Churches
at Raleigh, Forestville, FninkHnton and
"Warrenton. We, the Local, had the pleas
ure of being with the party from this City,
as a guest, and shall long remeinbcr the oc
casion with emotions of pleasure, as, no
doubt, every one will who had the good for
tune to participate in its festivities.
At half-past six o'clock, on Friday morn
ing, according to previous arrangement, the
School, with its officers, met at the Baptist
Church, formed a procession and marched
to the Station of the Raleigh and Gaston
Railroad, where a train, consisting of six
passenger cars and one baggage car, was in
readiness to take them to Forestville. We
estimate the number in procession at over
three hundred, under charge of Mr. W. J.
Palmer, Superintendent, P. F. Pescud, Chief
Marshal, J. G. Williams, T. H. Briggs, Jr.,
A. P. C. Bryan, Assistant Marshals, and Mrs.
Dodd and M. Betts in charge of the infant
classes. Everything was admirably arrang
ed; the School, together with many of the
parents of the children and invited guests,
were comfortably seated, the whistle blew,
and away we went.
We had a seat in a newly repaired passen
ger coach, fitted up under the supervision of
Mr. O. D. Lipscomb, Master Machinest at
the shops of the Raleigh and Gaston Rail
road Company, which wjis as neat as a new
pin and rolled almost as smoothly over the
track as a boat glides over the face ot a
lake. The trip to the College was pleasant ;
the ChockeyotU, Eddy White, engineer, drew
the long train with as much speed as was
desirable, while all felt at ease under the
care of Conductor Howard, and the boxes of
good things was safe in the charge of Mr.
Dallas Ward, the baggage-master.
On arriving at Wake Forest College, our
train was met by another from the eastern
end of the Road, having on board the officers
and scholars of the Baptist Sunday Schools
at Warrenton and Franklinton ; the former
Tinder the charge of Dr. Geo. A. Foote, Mar
shal, and Mr. A. H. Williams, Superinten
dent; the latter under charge of Capt. J. D.
Joyner, Marshal, and Mr. A. D. Ellis, Super
intendent. The visiting schools were met at
the Railroad by the Wake Forest Baptist
Sunday School, Maj. J. H. Foote, Marshal,
and Mr. W. B. Royall, Superintendent. The
appearance of the sky portended an unpro
pitious day, but there was a long May-day
of sunshine in every heart, which'beamed on
each Wow, twinkled in each eye and smiled
on each lip ; so that the cloudy skies were no
drawback to the prospect of enjoyment.
All the Schools, numbering together, we
judge, nearly six hundred scholars, marched
with waving banners to the Chappel of the
College, where the beautiful little song,
" The Sabbath School that blessed place,"
was sung by all the Schools, after which
prayer was offered up by Rev. H. T. Hudson,
pastor of the Methodist Church in Raleigh.
Maj. J. H. Foote, of Wake Forest, then
welcomed the visitors in a short and appro
priate address, responses to which were made
by Mr. E. S. Lougee, Rev.T. E. Skinner,
Rev. W. H. Cunninggim and Rev. H. T. Hud
son, of Raleigh, Mr. Ellis, of Franklinton
and Mr. W. B. Royall, of Wake Forest. Vo
cal music was interspersed between the ad
dresses, the spirited manner in which the
various songs were sung showing that this
most pleasing and elevating part, not only of
Sunday School education, but of divine
worship, had not been neglected by the
managers of the schools present. We should
like to notice separately and particularly the
addresses of the various speakers, but the
length to which we are running this article
admonishes us that we shall not have space
to do justice to all, so we close on that head
by stating that all the a.ldresses were appro
priate to the occasion and were well received
by the audience.
Mr. W. J. Palmer, Superintendent of the
Raleigh School, made the last speech of the
forenoon. He got all the children in a high
state of glee and good humor, and announc
ed the programme for disposing of the solid
part of the festivities; after which the chil
dren and visitors dispersed themselves about
the College grounds to await the announce
ment that "the creature comforts" were
ready for attack.
Now everv body that knows the Local,
knows, or ought to know, that he is much
more eiven to those elevated pleasures ,and
enjoyments characterised as "the feast of
reason and the flow ot soul," tnan to sucn
common-place realities as "meats and drinks,"
and therefore will not expect from him a
very vivid description of the pic-nic dinner
at Wake Forest, on this occasion. He leaves
that to Mr. J. J. G., of the Progress, who was
present throughout the trip, especially dur
ing the out-door exercises, and he hopes he
will do justice to the subject, provided he
was able to withdraw his attention from an
other attractive feature of " surrounding ob
jects," long enough to bestow it upon the
dinner table. We shall only say that, we
never saw a finer table spread upon any
similar occasion meats of various kinds,
fowles, pickles, bread, cakes and nick-nacks,
were bountifully partaken of by all present,
and there was enough left for another crowd
After dinner, Mr. J. W. Watson, artist, of
this City, who had brought along his sun
painting apparatus, took a large ambrotype
of the College, the grove, the schools, ban
ners and all, and will print an indefinite
number of copies of the same, which may be
had by calling at his gallery on Fayetteville
Street in this City. We design obtaining a
copy ourself, as we were standing beside
two or three most magnificent, splendid and
beautiful specimens of angelic humanity
when the picture was taken.
The crowd then re-assembled at the Chapel,
where more speeches were made and more
songs were sung, which wc would like to
notice, but cannot. We will not omit, how
ever, to mention a little speech by Master
Ward, of Franklinto, a young gen
tleman of about five or six years of age; a
missionary speech by Master Ruffin Litch
ford, of Raleigh, not much older, and a sweet
little song, " A light in the Window,"
beautifully sung by little Miss Lily Ruth, of
Raleigh. Resolutions of thanks for courte
sies, &c., were adopted by the visitors, and
invitations to come again extended by the
School at Wake Forest '; !
Between three and four o'clock, the trains
pulled up, the visiting schools and guests
got aboard and departed for their homes,
where we hope all arrived safely,. with hearts
filled with pleasant memories of " the day
and the occasion," and a purpose of heart on
the part of all connected with the Sunday
Schools, to pursue their pleasing duties for
another twelve' months, that their labors
may be followed by another equally joyous
Sunday School Celebration.
Proceedings of Congress.
Washington, May 18th. Senate. Mr.
Sumner presented a petition from colored
citizens asking that the second clause of the
pending constitutional amendment be strick
en out, and one substituted for it, declaring
that no Congressman from the South be al
lowed to sit in the House of Representatives
who is not chosen by at least half of the loyal
men of his district, without regard to color.
Ordered to be printed.
Mr. Sumner also presented a petition for
the trial of Jefferson Davis by court martial,
and remarked, in connection : " In present
ing this petition I express no opinion on it,
but now, that the subject is before us, I will
add, that the trial of Jefferson Davis, at the
present time, by a jury in Richmond, will be
one of those great comedies which hereafter
will excite the derision of the world." The
petition was referred to the Military com
mittee. The Senate receded from its amendment to
the bill-authorizing two annual terms of the
Circuit Court in the District of Virginia, to
commence the first Monday in May and No
vember, and changing the place from Nor
folk to Richmond. This action of the Sen
ate restores the authority of the Chief Jus
tice to hold special terms of the court. The
bill having thus passed both Houses, awaits
the President's signature.
House. The Military committee reported
a bill equalizing the bounties of soldiers, sail
ors and marines, giving them at the rate of
one hundred dollars per vear from April,
1861, to April, 1865.
The remainder of the session was con
sumed in considering the Tax bill.
We take the following from the Washing
ton correspondence of the N. Y. Times, of
the 19th instant :
The proposed amendment to the Con
stitution offered by Mr. Stevens, providing
an export duty of five per cent, on cotton,
was considered this morning by the House
Judiciary Committee, and resulted in a tie
vote three to three. Had the other mem
lers of the committee been present, it is un
stood that Mr. Stevens' amendment would
have been agreed to by the committee.
I'ndonditional Talon Convention in Virginia.
A number of leading Union men of Vir
ginia have met at Alexandria and organized
themselves into "a permanent political or
ganization to be known as the Union Re
publican party of Virginia." Mr. Butts is
chairman of the Convention.
On the 18th resolutions were introduced
looking to reconciliation of Congress and
the Executive by imitating State action in
favor of impartial qualified suffrage, and the
appointment of a committee to wait upon
both the President and Congress to get
their endorsement of the action of the Con
vention. After tome debate, the resolutions
were received and passed.
The Convention recommended Hon. John
Minor Botts' plan of reconstruction to Con
gress and adjourned sine die.
Savannah, May 18. Gens. Steedman and
Fullerton arrived here last night. They left
Charleston on Sunday, since which time
thev have been investigating the working of
the FreednseiTs Bureau on tlie Sea Islands.
Among the evils that have come to light
is the persistent system of overcharging for
food and the necessaries of life indulged in
by many jersons working the plantations.
The ixxiedmen are paid fifty cents per task
of quarter of an acre. They are then
charged three dollars per bushel for corn that
costs the planter one dollar and thirty cents.
Alexandria. May 18. The Episcopal
Convention to-day adopted by a vote of 00
against 18, a preamble and resolution that
the Diocese of Virginia do now resume its

The Conaecticit Seoatorshlp The Colorado Veto
Snpported- Sir. Stanton's Expected Speech.
Washington, May 17. It is understood
here in republican circles that several con
servative friends of Senator Foster have
united with the democrats in the Connecti
cut. Legislature to oppose the election of a
radical to the United States Senatorship.
This has created much excitement at the
capitol. I am in receipt of reliable informa
tion to-day showing that the republican
friends of Johnson are moving upon system
in numerous leading quarters of the country.
Plenty of republican members of Congress
are glad of the Colorado veto.
It is not doubted by leading Johnson re
publicans that Mr. Stanton would have un
gently pressed the policy of the President
had the contemplated serenade come off to
night. It will take place in a day or two.
Suspension of Frecdmen Courts.
The Superintendents of the Freedmcn's
Bureau in the State of Virginia have been

A Single Box of BRA NDRETH'S
PILLS contains more vegetable extract matter
than twenty boxes of any pills in the world be
sides ; fifty-five hundred physicians use them in
their practice to the exclusion of other purgatives.
The first letter of their value is" yet scarcely ap
preciated. When they are better known, sudden
death and continncd sickness will be of the past.
Let those who know them speak right ont in their
favor. It U a duty which will save life.
Our race are subject to a redundancy of vitiated
bile at this season, and it is as dangerous as it is
prevalent ; but Brundreth's Pills afford an inval
uable and efficient protection. By their occa
sional use we prevent the collection of those
impurities which, when in sufficient quantities,
cause so much danger to the body's health. They;
soon cure Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Loss of
Appetite, Pain in the Head. Heartburn, Pain in
the Breast-bone, Sudden Faintness and Costive
ness. Sold by all respectable Dealers in Medi
cines. 23 tw&wlm.

to supply the demand." We have repeatedly en
larged our factory buildings until they now cover
over three acres of ground, and give accommoda
tion to more than eight hundred workmen.
We are fully justified in stating that we now
make MORE THAN ONE-HALF OF ALL THE
WATCHES SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES.
The different grades are distinguished by the
following trade-marks engraved on the plate :
1. "American Watch Co.," Walt ham, Mass.
2. " Apnleton, Tracy & Co.," Waltham, Mass.
3. "P. S Bartlett." Waltham, Mass.
4. " Wm. Ellery."
5. OUR LADIES' WATCH of first quality is
named " Appletou, Tracy & Co.," Waltham, Moss.
6. Our next quality of Ladies' Watch is named
" P. S. Bartlett," Waltham, Mass. These watch
es are furnished in a great variety of sizes and
styles of coses.
The American Watch Co., of Waltham, Mass.,
authorize us to state that without distinction of
trademarks or price,
ALL THE PRODUCTS OF THEIR FACTORY
ARE FULLY WARRANTED
to be the b'.-st time-keepers of their class ever
made In this or any other country. Buyers should
remember that unlike the guarantee of a foreign
maker who can never be reached, this warrantee
is good at all times against the Company or their
agents, aud that if after tiic most thorough trial,
any watch should prove defective in any particu
lar, it may always be exchanged for anotiier. As
the American Watches made at Waltham, are for
sale by dealers generally t'iroughout the country,
we do not solicit orders for single watches.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
only of respectable dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
