THE I,OSS OF THE EVENING STAR.
How She ' Mijtht Have Been Saved.
To the Editor of the Herald.
This vessel was lost off the coast of
Florida, about two hundred miles from
the port of Fernandina. It appears from ;
the testimony ot the mate that the gale
commenced blowing irom tne southeast ;
it then hauled to east and then to the
northeast, after which tell almost dead
calm, and then it came out violently
from the northwest. It appears also
that the ship was steering 'south, and
afterwards southwest, and lastly S. S.
W. In order to form a tetter idea of
the causes of the loss of this vessel, it
will be necessary to trace the probable
direction of the storm, and this can only
be done by a sketch of the coast of the
United States. It seems that the Even
ing Star first felt the gale when she was
about in the latitude of Charleston, the
wind being southeast. The ship was
then steering south ; afterwards she
was kept away southwest, and finally
S. S. W . It seems evident that had the
vessel been steered east, she would
have avoided the most of the storm and
would soon have been out of its influ
ence ; by keeping her away southwest
and afterwards S.S.W., she was injudi
ciously pushed further and further to
wards the centre of the storm, and she
finally passed through the centre where
it was calm. At this time there was a
tremendous heavy sea, and when the
wind again sprung up furiously from the
northwest, the ship went driving into a
heavy head sea, until she was finally
swamped. Every seaman knows what
it is to drive his ship into a heavy head
sea how it shakes and racks it and
also knows how often whole green seas
come over the bows under such circum
stances. If the captains of our mer
chant vessels would study up the the
ory of storms, as first published by Mr.
W. U. Kedheld, and afterwards more
elaborately by Colonel Reed, of the
British army, and more recently by Mr.
Piddington in his Sailor's Horn book, I
think the number of disasters at sea
would be greatly decreased ; for a cap
tain who understands this theory can
nearly always avoid the strength of the
gauj in tact, can always do so u vicin
ity of land does not prevent him. This
storm passed like wire over the island
of Bermuda, probably the eastern edge
of it. The western edge was felt at
Cape Hatteras, as the United States
steamer Memphis had to run in for a
shelter into Hatteras inlet. I think it
very probable that the centre of the
storm rau along on the eastern edge of
Gulf stream, and as it advanced to the
northward and eastward expanded so
as to embrace a larger extent of the
ocean, when, as a matter of course, the
wind would become less violent. It is
also probable that this storm passed
over the windward West India islands,
and had its origin somewhere not far
from the mouth of the river Orinoco or
Amazon, It is lamentable just to think
that our ship captains are notoriously
ignorant of this theory of storms,which
is as simple as beautiful, and, by a little
study and care, can be easily mastered
by any seaman who can read and write.
I think it is the duty of ship owners aod
of insurance offices to exact a knowledge
of this theory from the captains of their
vessels, and to provide every vessel
sailing under the American flag with a
copy of Piddington's Sailor's Horn
Book. In conclusion, I attribute the
loss of the Evening Star to the want of
judgment in steering her into the storm,
instead of out of it, which should have
been done, and would have been done,
doubtless, had the captain had any
knowledge of the law of storms.

Ftxmeeal of the Late De. Dewey.
The last sad and melancholy tribute
of respect and love was paid to the
memory of our late worthy friend and
brother, Dr. Charies F. Dewey, yester
day at eleven o'clock. The services
were conducted by the Rev. S. M Frost,
of the Methodist church, at the resi
dence of the deceased.
A vast concourse of the citizens ol
Goldsboro', together with the members
of Wayne Lodge, A. Y. M., of which
body of Dr. D.' was a member, atten
ded on the solemn occasion, to mingle
their tears of sympathy with the afflic
ted family, who mourn the loss of a
husband and a father.
The procession, as it moved down
East centre street to the cemetary,
presented a most solemn spectacle.
The tread of the vast number that
made up the procession, was slow and
silent, not a whisper, not a look, save
that of sorrow.
The masonic fraternity preceded the
hearse that contained the , eofiin fol
lowing, was a carriage, containing
Mrs. Dewey and the venerable father of
the deceased and then came citizens
generally, forming a line of some three
hundred yards in length.
The remains of Dr. Dewey were de
posited in their last resting place, by
the Masons, with their solemn, T-Mit
beautiful, " burial of the dead." The
cold earth was shoveled in, and we
leave this brother, to meet no more,
till the last day, when the grave shall
be called on to give up its dead.

' Election Returns.
The vote in the 45th Senatorial district,
composed of the Counties of Wilkes, Ire
delL and Alexander, is as follows :
J. H. Hill, 1315
Calvin J. Cowles, 1314
Hill's majority, 1
Mr. Cowles was very badly treated in por-
Kions-of the district, and his defeat may be
traced to the obloquy poured upon him be
cause of his staunch Unionism. He is a
thorough gentleman, of high intelligence,
and a devoted patriot. The organ of Gov.
Worth called on the grand juries during the
campaign, to indict all such Union men as
Mr. Cowles ; and Mr. Cowles was subjected
to insults and indignities by secession bullies
and cowards, which intimidated his friends,
and prevented his election. North-Carolina,
under Gov. Worth, is just as well prepared
to be admitted to the Union as she was un
der Gov. Vance. Open the door and let her
in, ye Radicals. The unrepentant rebels who
speak for her, demand their rights. Mean
while they propose to amuse themselves by
indicting the " unmistakably" loyal Union
ists of the State. The organ of the Gov
ernor has so ordered, and of course it will be
The vote in the 44th district, composed of
the Counties of Yadkin, Surry, Ashe, Alle
ghany, and Watauga, is as follows :
Andrew C. Cowles, 2,147
N. A. Boyden, 702
W. Williams, 521
Cowles' majority over both, 924
Robert Garubril, Worth and Davis Radi
cal, is elected to the Commons in Ashe and
Alleghany over Carson, Unionist.
William Horton, Worth and Davis Radical,
is elected from Watauga, over Ransom,
The Standard is much pleased at the sue
cess of the Radicals in West Virginia. It
would gladly hail a similar victory in North
Carolina, produced by a similar agency the
disfranchisement of our best citizens. Sen
The Standard maintains unflinchingly the
celebrated declaration of Andrew Johnson,
that if there be but five thousand loyal men
in a State they are .entitled to govern and
control it. We know the fact that Andrew
Johnson still adheres to this declaration. He
has not retracted or even qualified it, and he
repeated it to the writer of this with much
emphasis in July last.
It is not true that the " best citizens" are
disfranchised in West Virginia. The worst
citizens are disfranchised, and the best only
are allowed to vote. No man is a good cit
izen who does not submit unconditionally to
the national authority. The Editors of the
Sentinel, and those for whom they speak, are 1
our worst citizens. They are still rebellious.
They still hate the Union. They are not yet
fit to govern. They need to be governed.
The safety, repose, and prosperity of the
country require that they should be govern
ed until such time as they give unmistakable
evidence that they regret the part they took
in the rebellion, and that they are sincerely
submissive and loyal to the national author
ity. Our " best citizens," socially, personally,
and politically, are the unconditional Union
men. If they are to be kept under ban,
and regarded as outcasts on account of their
Union principles, then we say to the North
ern people, spread a pall over the graves of
your three hundred thousand dead, destroy
your national securities of three thousand mil
lions of dollars, make a bonfire of your flag
and of all your archives, and blot the proud
name of the United States from the roll of
nations. There are but two parties in the
United States the party for and the party
against the Union. There can be no middle
ground. He who is not openly and unmis
takably for the Union is against it, and is a
The following is the clause in the Consti
tution of West Virginia restricting suffrage :
" No person who, since the first day of June,
1861, has given or shall give voluntary aid or as
sistance to the rebellion against the United
States, shall be a citizen of this State, or be al
lowed to vote at any election held therein, unless
he has volunteered into the military or naval ser
vice of the United States, and has been or shall be
honorably discharged therefrom."
This was ratified by the people of West
Virginia by the following vote ; Ratification
23,157, Rejection 15,021.
Previously to the formation of tbe State of
West Virginia the Confederate Congress pas
sed the following law :
" Be it enacted, That any citizen holding office
under the government of the United Stateajifter
the 31st July, 1861, shall be forever banished from
the State, and be declared an alien enemy; and
that any citizen of Virginia hereafter under
taking to represent the State of Virginia in the
Congress of the United States, shall, in addition
to the above penalties, be considered guilty of
treason, and his property be liable to confisca
tion." If the Confederacy had succeeded, Union,
men in tbe South would have been shot or
hanged, their property would have been con
fiscated, and the miserable remnant1 would
have been driven out with jeers and curses to
their Yankee friends. The despotism over
body and mind which would have prevailed
in all these States, would have been the most

Gen. Sherman's mission to Mexico.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Times says .
Gen. Sherman had another interview with
the President to-day, after the session of the
Cabinet, at which he accepted the military
diplomatic mission to Mexico, which I stated
yesterday had been tendered to him.. He
will, therefore, leave for Ohio to-morrow, and,
after arranging some private affairs, he will
leave for Mexico probably within ten days,
accompanied by Col. Campbell, Minister to
that Republic. The Administration is grati
fied at the prompt action of Gen. Sherman,
and the hope is confidently entertained that
the presence of an officer of such rank and
distinction will be a sufficient indication of
the earnestness of this Government in the
measures it is taking: to-aid the restoration
of the republic, and that it will render the ac
tual presence of United States troops on
Mexican soil unnecessary. Gen. Sherman's
precise mission is both military and diplo
matic. He goes to sustain Minister Camp
bell in all the diplomatic relations which may
be re-established, and empowered also with
full direction as to the use of military power
in any emergency requiring it. The very
important nature of this work is thus appar
ent, and the President is anxious that it not
only shall be in safe and able hands, but that
our representatives shall reach 'the scene of
action as soon us possible. The name of Gen.
Grant was at first suggested as the proper
person for this position of military envoy,
but as he cannot well be spared from the
pressing duties consequent upon the reorgan
ization of the army, Gen. Sherman was selec
ted, he having declined the tender of the
War Department, which was made by the
President. When the change does occur in
the latter Department, it is altogether proba
ble that Gen. Grant will assume its duties."
It is stated that tbe United States govern
ment is to act as a sort of protectorate to
Mexico ; that Maximilian is to retire, and the
liberal government of Juarez is to be main
tained ; and the United States is to have
Lower California and large slices from Chi
huihua and Sonora. Gen. Sherman is emi
nently fitted to attend to all these matters.
Oliver II. Doclterv, Esq;.
If every leading Unionist in the State had
exerted himself in the late campaign as the
gentleman did whose name heads this article,
the Union vote would have been much lar
ger than it is. We learn from a friend in
Montgomery County that Col. Dockery ad
dressed the people at Troy, Carthage, and
Rockingham with marked effect, explaining
and enforcing the Howard amendment, and
urging due and honest submission to nation
al authority. His speech at Carthage, to
which Gen. Dowd attempted in vain to re
ply, is spoken of in high terms of praise.
Oliver H. Dockery is a son of that noble
old Unionist, Gen. Alfred Dockery, of Rich
mond. It affords us pleasure also to bear our tes
timony to the zeal and fidelity exhibited in
the late campaign by Allen Jordan and D.
A. Boyd, Esquires, of Montgomery, and W.
B. Richardson, A. R. McDonald, and Wil
liam M. Black, Esquires, of Moore.
Claims Against the Federal Government.
We have received letters from a number of
loyal Unionists of this State, who suffered los
ses during the rebellion at the hands of fed
eral troops, asking if any provision has been
made to compensate them for such losses.
We reply, that there is a law of Congress
under which all loyal persons, who can make
satisfactory proof of loyalty, will be able,
when the State shall have been restored to the
Union, to obtain compensation for their los
ses. The day after the Tennessee members
were admitted to their seats, on motion of
Col. Stokes, the law on this subject was ex
tended to that State, and Tennessee claim
ants are now receiving their money.
But everything promotive of justice and
prosperity among our people is hindered by
our exclusion from the Union ; and this ex
clusion is the result of the unsubdued and
rebellious spirit by which those public men
re governed who are controlling our affairs.
Prof. Habriss has published an impor
tant historical work of American earlier his
torians and their books. It is entitled
" Bibliotheca Americana Vetustissima," rela
ting to works published between the years
1492 and 1551. Prof. Harrisssis a native of
France, and was for years, Professor of Mod
ern languages in the University at Chapel
Hill.. He removed to the City of New York
a few years since to practice law. While at
the University he translated Rene Descartes
great work on Metaphysics. He is now trav
eling in Europe. The "Bibliotheca" was
printed on the Bradstreet press, at the ex
pense of Mr. S. L. M. Barlow, ot New York
City, and the Herald thinks it is "highly
creditable to Mr. B's. intelligent love of let
ters, and to Prof. Harrisse's literary industry
Something Very Elegant.
We invite the attention of the New York
Times and other Northern journals, to the
following from the Salisbury Banner, of this
State. Specking of the Legislature of this
State and the proposed constitutional amend
ment, that paper says :
" We do not believe there is a respectable
member, elected to that body, who will hesi
tate for -a moment as to what course he
should pursue, with respect to that damnable
act, passed by the miserable, Jacobin mob of
conspirators., styling itself a Congress, unless
he is unduly influenced by such southern
radical co-workers as Holden, Dockery, Dick,
and Logan. There mar be some few that
will cast their votesin favor of its adoption,
out, nzr word tor it, they will be such as can
lay no claim to character, influence, or prin
ciple." - The Baltimore Troubles.
It is stated that Gov. Swan has decided to
remove the Baltimore Police Commissioners.
He says that if necessary to enforce the de
cision, he will eall npon the United States
government tor troops. , There : was much
excitement on the ctreets of Baltimore," and
indications of trctible. ' r- " i.' '. .. . ' :
The Southern Radicals, headed by Swan,
are , counting - on - f carrying 3 Maryland , on
Wednesday xti M should "not be sur
prised if they did.
We give below the vote Tor Governor of
this State in Noyember; 4865, 3fmd October,'
1866C ; Gov.: Worth's Vote . will .reach " about
3,600 and Gen.' DockervV will be a frac
tion pver 1 0,000. v AlUtbe Counties are- re

ghaiiy, Camden'.Currituck, .Halifax Mont
gomery, Pasquotank and Polk. ' v . ..
. .. Gov. Worth was a candidate, and every
effort was made to swell his vote. General
Dockery was not a candidate. The small
vote polled for him in many Union Counties
would, of itself, prove that he was not re
garded as a candidate.
We do not publish the vote of 1865 by
way of comparison with the vote of 1866, so
far as Gen. Dockery is concerned, but simply
for information, and to show the small gains
made by Gov. Worth on his former vote.

Late Member of Congress from Illinois..
MR. ARNOLD WAS A ERIEND AND As
sociate of Mr. Lincoln at the bar. a memlwr
of Congress during his entire Administration,
and from his arrival at the Capitol to the- day of
his assassination was upon terms of coafldentiol
friendship with him.
The work was commenced nearly a year before
the death of Mr. Lincoln, and with his approval.
The Author has aimed to give a full history of the
life and administration of Mr. Lincoln, - and the
overthrow of Slavery. He commences with a
sketch of the history of Slavery from 1787 to the
repeal of the Missouri Compromise, describing
the conflict between Freedom and Slavery down
to 1860, and giving the origin, rise, and growth
of Anti-Slavery. He gives a history of the life ot
Mr. Lincoln, the hardships of his early years, his
education, his career in the Illinois Legislature,
at tbe Bar, on the Circuit, in Congresa, on the
Stump, the Lincoln and Douglas debate, and his
eleetion to the Presidency.
Then iollows a history of his Administration
and of the various steps, Executive, Legislative
and Military, whieh resulted in the overthrow of
Slavery and the Slaveholders rebellion ; and the
passage by Congress, and the adoption by the
States, of the Constitutional Amendment abolish
ing and prohibiting Slavery forever. . Sketches of
the great debates in Congress of prominent Sena
tors and Members, and of the leading men in the
Cabinet and at the bead of tbe Armies, - with a
general narration of the important military move
ments will be given. . ..
The aim of the Anther has been to give a truth
ful history of the great drama of the rebellion,
with Lincoln as the leading character, and to de
scribe him as he was from youth until he beeamo
the Emancipator of a race, the Restorer of nation
al unity, and the Saviour of his country.
The work will be a lare octavo of notless than
600 pages, and will be sold by subscription.
