The following excellent speech,
delivered hy Judge T. II. Cookc on
the occasion of his visit to Ncwberry
on lastrTuefiday, us one of the disj
tinguished' guests that accompanied
Colonel Black.'.on his inspection of the

request of the judge's many admirers:
who were present:
Soldi Kits Xnp Gkxti,i;men?Thi?
invitation is an i'ricxpoetcd pleasure,'
and J scarcely know lidw to address
yen. The troops are here as coriserJ
vdtors of the pence,supporting and:
assisting with the military a-m of the
government the civil authority of the
State. Representing in part the civil
power, 1 am yet here alone in my
qhjpacity hs -a citizen, and mtfyj'pcakj
.to *ou as citizens as well as soldiers,
'rho'condition^ ofjtlie.'.K${uth, gentUmcn,'
is extraordinary and anomalous. It
is not in accord with the essential
spirit of our great rcpub'ic that the
uniform of the soldier should confront
and impeach the republican dignity
of the citizen; and the mosttjminful
duty of the future historian will be to
make a proper excuse for the con
tinued presence in time of peace of a
considerable federal force in any part
of our country. lie will have to ad
mit and deplore the necessity. He will
have to show that the necessity arose
in the unbroken spirit of ii heroic and
devoted people, .unable to control the
passing .11|;lL huUbceUr: excited by an
unparalleled war, ami unable all at
once t o smother the dying embers of a
flame .that lmd conMuutd^Lltcir deur

their wonted lire. . And, gentlemen,
when South -Carol innj|:fj.i*d her armed

Und while, gentlemen, the cxistcnee
ol' the troojis were necessary to assist
our people in the return of peace and
the r<-establishment of right reason
and public order, while it was to be
expected that a people who had illus
trated the gnllarilry'of the Anglo Sax
on race with splendid virtue that
even the lost cause in not shed upon
the military character of the Ameri
can republic; it was to be expected
that these people should not yield to
such a radical change in every ele
ment of their lives without here and
there a bloody challenge of the piouts
of the war.
Still, gentlemen, the day is not far
distant?its light is now breaking all
around us?whin your'presence will
no longer Lu needed, when the civil
authority of the Slate shall be
supreme, and we of the South shall he

our united and prosperous people.

?.Toledo Ghost Story.
Last weck a-respected citizen died
ib'tins city, nntj was laid out in funer
al robes preparatory to interment next
day. That night two watchers sat in
the room adjoining, that in which
the corpsc was" lying.. The door be
tween the two rbQins was shut, but not
latclied. Along toward midnight the
watchers began, )as, watchers will, to
amuse themselves by telling gho:;t
stories. If there is any place or time
when a ghost ttory can be told with a
popular, thrilling effect it is in the
''dead waste aucl middle cf the night,1'
in the immediate propinquity of a
corpse; which has just yielded up the
ghn?t.
So it proveiLin .this instance. As
the narrator proceeded with the blood
curdling recital, he and his auditor in
stinctively turned their cyea toward
the door of the room in which the dead
man lay. tFust then the relator
nid: ?
"At that minute an awful groan was
heard, the lights turned blue, and
there was a amell of brimstone,' the
door opened (ff itself, and in walked
The knob of the dcor to the corpse'5
room turned slowly, and the door
swung open open w.tli a long 'screech.
The relatt-r tsnrieked.
?"There it docs come!" and with n
convulsive bovnd, threw lm arms
ti round his companion's neck. Every
individual hair upon the lattcr's head
became as rigid as a' frozen knitting
needle, his lingers worked like an im
paled fisli worm, and he goasped out:
"Ilowly Mary I mother of-"
then .his whitejips became dumb ^jib

uirtics, not seeing any spiritual visi

enco of mind, and then they dUoov

Apropos of the Tyndall-Darwin

remind me of an answcnjof tho Ohio

A grocer in a certain town keeps
a little brown jug hear bis eiddor bar
rel, and when he wants to <lo the fair
thing by a customer, ho mingles some
of tLc contents ot the aforesaid jug
with tho cider. Ife made- a mingle
the other day for an old fanner, but
got in a good deal of benzine and a
little eider. About an hour after
drinking, tho farmer was observed
leaning against r. fence, and was heard
to .soliloquize: "It's too early for sun
stroke, aud too late to freeze to death,
and I guess it's a touch of Ihe sliulcin

What makes this life ?o poor and
d<y and barren is its insubstantiality,
its vacuity, its vani'.y. We have
everything and we arc beggars. Kot
a breath of the cast wind blows upon
us, and yet we are pnrched. and arid,
ami withered. We have ah and have
nothing, We bring home a lapful of
treasure,, only to put it in a bag with
holes. Wo hew out for ourselves cis
