Uditor Citizen: On Inst evening vour
correspondent lclt tiresome Loudon
where a week of continual sighlscciin!
had quite exhausted his powi-rs, mental
and physieal, and taking train for Har
wich, there hoarded a small steamer
which landed us at Antwcrpat lOo'clock
There are doubtless many tilings in
liuropc which arc lietter done than in
America, notahlv the science ol tlcccin
travelers by means of fees and extra
charges, which is certainly worked up to
a degree ol perfection that entitles it to
lie classed among the line arts. It is
rather annoying when von sit down t
tahle d'hote dinner, which prnlcsscs to he
served lor live shillings, to lind yourself
charged a sixpence extra for ,'ittcudnncc
iiincpcncc for a cup of coffee and three
pence for ice, which two last items you
may nave unwittingly uskco ior.
While we feel obliged to acknowledge
the sii)crior skill ol our hosts in the de
partment referred to above, we must say
that in everything that composes true
comfort in traveling, America can teach
them more than they have learned in all
the centuries ol their national existence.
Thcv really do not know the meaning of
the word "coinlort. 1 lieu-railroad car
riages one soon gets accustomed to, and
they are not so really objectionable,
when occupied by a party of friends, but
when crowded with people unacquainted
with each other and all inclined to con
sidcr anvonc who ventures to begin ti
conversation as a burglar or garrotcr in
disguise, it is hv no means agreeable,
Then, too, the want ol ice water is ter
ribly fell by those who have always been
accustomed to having it in the greatest
abundance. In the railroad carnages
there is no provision whatever lor sup
plying water, iced or otherwise, and we
.can conceive of nothing more distressing
than to be obliged to travel all night in
one of them.
Nor are the discomforts by any means
confined to the railroads, but the steam
boat accommodations arc quite us unsat
isfactory. We have given you some idea
of the discomforts attending a trans
Atlanlic voyage by a steamer of the
State line, and last evening when we
found the boat which was to cany a
tremendous crowd across the North Sea
both small and illy provided with what
we arc accustomed to consider the neces
sities of traveler's life, ( for instance, not
a single chair nor sola provided on deck )
we could not resist the comparison witii
our American Fall River line, or Chesa
peake Hay boats or many others where
every convenience and delight is provided
Ilefore leaving mention of London we
must not fail to chronicle that which
most charmed us there, to-wit, a sermon
by Canon Farrar. St. Margaret's church
was packed full to overllowing last Sun
day, but it was our good luck to secure n
place where every wonl was audible, and
the expressive face and gesture of the
earnest sfienker visible. It was strange
to hear the comments of all of our party
as the service ended. With universal
consent the sermon was declared excel
lent, and "exactly like that we heard last
Sunday at St. "Giles', in Hdinburgh."
J'es, we never remember on two succcss
iivp .Sundays, in different places and by
,iuiniU'rs of different creeds, to have
Jieard discourses so remarkably similar
jn tone, idea and in manner of delivery.
AH that we had heard and read of Canon
J'nrrur was fully realized, and without
attempting an epitome of his sermon, we
will only say the same spirit of universal
love and urging to good works in the
most practical and common sense man
ner pervaded it, as does all of his writings
that we have read.
Now for the Continent! Arriving in
Antwerp we sjiend a lew hours in visiting
fscveral places of interest. The home ami
the tomb of the great painter Kuliens,
.and several of his most noted pictures.
His "Crucifixion" vc thought most pain
fully realistic, and yet the fascination
was such as kept our eyes fixed upon it.
The difference in expression of the two
thieves was csiccinlly strong, but we
must confess none of his paintings leave
with us any sense of enjoyment. All are
renditions of such terrible ideas, and in a
manner to bring them to your very face.
Then to-day we saw one of the martyr
dom of a saint whose tongue had been
cut out and was being fed to a dog,
while the poor victim writhed in an
guish, inexpressible by anyone save Ru
bens'. Indeed it was enough to keep one
awake for a week with the memory.
The sccimens of wood carving in all of
the churches in beauty far surpassed any
thing we ever dreamed possible, and
again and again we longed lor you to
see it, for in no other way can you enjoy
it as we did. It was not only a surprise
to us that this art could lie brought to
such K'rfectioii, but all the subjects were
selected so as to give pleasure and rest to
the eye and brain.
In line of the galleries we saw numer
ous amateur artists copying the paint
ings, and among them one man who hail
no arms, having been born so maimed,
and yet with his toes he was making a
very creditable copy of otic-of the liest
pictures. It was very curious to seewith
what case he could handle, or rather toe,
his brushes, ami with what delicacy he
could apply his colors.
Leaving Antwerp at ! p. in., an hours'
ride over a lienutiful agricultural coun
try brought us to Brussels. What most
pleased us was to sec the wind mills in
all directions perforiuii g their part, by
mmiping the water for irrigating the
lands. This was a picture we noticed as
soon as we could see the land this morn
ing, and struck us very oddy, as also the
fact that we could look across the ham
lets and see the sails of vessels going in
all directions, looking very much as
though sailing on dry land.
Brussels, we pronounce after a day's
inflection, one of the most licniiliful cities
we have ever seen, and in its cleanliness a
wonderful rebel alter London. The hotel
and restaurants are good, and would not
be at all exfiensive were it not for the
abominable extras, one of which is
lights; and as they charge us two Irancs
forty cents each for candles, we only use
one, and this accounts for the incoherent
manner in which this is written, liecause
the room is so dark as to render us un
certain whether we are talking in Eng
lish or still jablicriiig away at our new
idiometl French, as we have liecn doing
all day, very much to the amusement of
our party. However they may lie
amused, it matters not to us, and we
find a few words, even of bad French, a
great help, relieving us of the necessity
of a guide or interpreter. We find little
trouble in making ourselves understood ;
but the difficulty is to catch the reply,
showing conclusively how much bcttcr
mi- f rench is than that ol the residents
here, I'crhaps we may be able to come
down to the level of our auditors soon.
We ho)c so.
One of the handsomest buildings we
ever saw is the temple of Justice, finished
some fifteen years ago, and ill some rs
speets surpassing our national cnpitol;
especially are its perfectionsshown in the
interior arrangements and finish of the
several courts, which seem to correspond
with, as to arrangements lor general
transaction of legal business and in man
ner ol appeals from the lower to the
A day has been very pleasantly, and we
hope profitably, spent, in viewing many
placcs of interest and beauty; and long
will the enjoyable impression madeiipon
us endure, and refresh us with its mem
ory. To-morrow morning early we
start for Cologne, where we hoc to ar

CiiiCAno, August 1 7. A special from
Austin, Tcxns says: Yesterday evening
Gov. Ross received a dispatch from J. M.
Weston, of Richmond, saving that a
tight hadoccurcd between the"av Kirds"
and "Woodpeckers," rival political fac
tions, in which sheriff Carvey andilcputy
ltlackcny were killed and several others
wounded. The dispatch saiil that light
ing was still in progress, and troops
were needed. A dispatch from Capt.
Rcichat dt, of the Houston Light Guards,
said Richmond was in the hani' of the
mob, and several had Ik'cu killed. At
S) p. in. there was great excitement.
Gov Ross ordered the Light Guards of
Houston under Capt. Kcichnrdt to go
lo Richmond at once, and also telegraph
ed orders to the Itouhani Grays to be
ready to leave at a moment's notice.
The "Jaybirds" is a name given to the
white Democrats of Fort llend, nuinlicr-ing-Jtlll.
The "Woodpeckers" include
negroes ami a few whites. The negroes
are mostly in the ascendancy. It is the
renewal of a race iiiarrel.
A Houston, Texas, special says: Capi .
Reichardt left here lor Richmond at

Two gentlemen who arrived' here by the

house surrounded by the other faction,
but no more lighting occurred. Thevcon
firuied the news of Ihc killing of shcrill

The town is crazy with excitement, wo
men and children being at home, while
the men arc down town. There is but
one light burning in the whole town, and
that is at the hotel. The riot was pre
cipitated by a "Jaybird" walking
through town Willi his Winchester rifle.
He was arrested, ami mil in iail. The
lighting soon began. The dead sheriff
and ex-sheriff were "lavhirds." A voium
mulatto girl was killed bv accident. All

The National Hank of Ahevill.
To-morrow the old and well known
Hank of Ashcville begins a new career as
a National Hank, with the above name.
It has won its claim to its new title and
consequence bv reason of long and faith
ful service. The Hank of Ashcville, whose
successor it is, is the first to he estab
lished to meet financial needs after the
war west of Charlotte. That was or
ganized in May 1S7U. It was always
faithfully, judiciously and generously
conducted, and has contributed vcry
largely to the business facilities of the
town and country ; to such degree as to
lie in a continued stage of growth ; until
now, to meet all the business calls upon
it, it enlarges its sphere and also its cai
ilal, its paid up capital King $100,000,
to Ik, crhaps already, increased to
$150,000. Its new crisp notes will soon

Sncecss of One or the IIchI HotelH
In the Country.
It gives Tin; Citizhn much .pleasure
to congratulate Frank Loughran, Usq.,
upon the splendid success which has at
tended his efforts in the management of
the celebrated Hickory Inn one of the
very best holds ill the whole country,
and one that is deservedly growing in
popular favor with the traveling public.
The management of a big hotel like the
Inn, was a new thing to him, but being
possessed of any amount of energy, pus
and activity, together with excellent
judgment and business methods, il did
not require any great length of time for
Mr. Loughran to develop into a Itouiface
of the first order.
His success, as a hotel man, has been
phenomenal, and to-day his house is well
and favorably known throughout the
I'liion. Guests at the Inn find all the
comforts and conveniences there lliatcau
be found in any hotel in America, and the
prices they are obliged to pay for these
luxuries are most reasonably cheap.
In speaking of the Hickory Inn, the
National Hotel Register of Chicago, says:
"We arc glad to record t In- success of
Mr. Frank Loughran as propi ictorofthc
Hickory Inn, at Hickory, N. C. When
Mr. Loughran, who is known as a suc
cessful business man at Ashcville, . C,
took possession of (he lliekorv Inn last
spring, many people predicted his laihnc.
Although not possessed ol hotel ex
perience previous lo his proprietorship
ol this house, Mr. Louchran has shown
marked adaptability for it and has met
with excellent success, lie found the
hold disorganized, ami soon after he as
sumed its control two of the most im
portant employes, thinking he could not
do without them, demanded an im
mcdialc increase of salary. Mr. Lough
ran refused their demands; employed new
men, took off his coat and went to work
with a will, looked into the details of the
business, secured new help, made new
and belter contracts, ami the result is
to-day that the Hickory luii is on a pay
ing basis, which condition, by the way.
it did not reach imdci llieloriucruiaiiage
ment. The hotel is splendidly equipped
and carefully and intelligently' managed.
We are glad to record its success."

welcomes all such enterprises, ami onlv
hopes that another twelvc-inonth will

The subjoined correspondence will Ik
read by many with very sincere sorrow,
liecause it marks Hie severance of the tics,
with many lilc long, which had
bound the pastor to his thick lor a time,
in such relation unusually long, for
nearly, if not quite, forty years. Dr. Itux
ton as rector of Trinity church has stood
in close, affectionate and solemn relation
to his own immediate (lock, and in pleas
ant and useful relation with the great
body id his fellow citizens. Hccanic here
when Ashcville was a village, when pop
illation was small, when churches were
few, and when his own denomiuat ion
had scarcely an organized existence.
Ouietly, unobtrusively, yet failhfully
and steadily, without offence to others,
yet with justifiable zeal in the discharge
of duty, he built up his own church.
Gradually he has had the reward of see
ing the small beginning gio-.v into one of
the chief denominations of the city; and
the great gratification of witnessing the
consecration ol the large and costly edi
fice built to meet the needs of a steadily
increasing congregation. With such a
man, so gentle, so good, so learned, so
distinguished, his people part with sin
cere reluctance, consoled with the knowl
edge thai he still remains near them to
counsel, cheer and comlort them.

One of the coldest criminals ever run
down and captured in Western North
Carolina was arrested early yesterday
morning by officers McDowell, Hampton
and Worst-ley of the city police force.
The name of the Icllow is II. A. Hatch
field, and he claims to be a native of
Wake county, living when at home, fif
teen miles south of Raleigh.
He was arrested in front of the restau
rant on South Main street, run by a col
ored man named George Greenlee, and
the warrant upon which he was pulled
charged Hatchficld with coining and is
suing spurious money. He had just fin
ished a breakfast at the restaurant and
was as cool as the atmosphere last night
when confronted by the officers. He
made no ailcmpl at a resistance and fol
lowed his captors to the mayor's office,
where he was told to pull oil' his coat.
Halchlield complied with the com
mand, and as he laid the garment across
a chair coolly remarked : "Well, I guess
von fellows will find what von are look
ing lor in there," pointing towards the
coal at the same time with his hand.
The officers made a dive for the pockets,
and from one ol tlictn fished out a set of
plaster of paris moulds containing an
ahuosl jicrlecl impression of a silver dol
lar of the coinage of Inns. From an
other pocket five bran new counterfeit
dollars were taken and laid beside the
moulds upon the tabic. 1 luring all this
lime the coiuitcrlcitcr did not utter a
word, anil it was not until the search
had bi'cn completed, that he began to
He said that he came lo Ashcville last
Sunday afternoon on the Last Tcnnessc,
Virginia and Georgia train, and that he
came from Cumberland Gap where he
had purchased the moulds. He had
bought, he said, sometime since, about
$7f or $10llof bogus money, all of which
he had "shoved" in dillcient localities.
The five new dollars found on his person
he made himself and was his first attempt
at coining. lie denied that he had a
"pal" here with him, and said that he
was entirely alone; he had only been in
the business a short time, and had not

Hatchlicld was taken before I'nitcd
Stales commissioner Sumiuey who, after
a preliminary examination, committed
him to jail to await trial at the Novem
ber term of the I'nitcd Slates district
The police department of the city have
liecn working on this case ever since
Monday evening, when they heard of
llatchficld's presence in west Ashcville.
He worked off the counterfeit coins on
several parties in that locality mid then
came up town to see how many victims
he could rope in among the smaller places
of business with which the city abounds.
He worked oil' one on Greenlee, the first
thing, and tried to gel another colored
man to change one of the spurious
lollars for him. The colored man,
however, luckily for himself, did not have
the necessary change, ami the "shovcr of
the queer" departed.
Several business men and other in
lividuals in the city have liecn taken
in by 1 1,'itchlicld, and his arrest by the
police yesterday was a most excellent
and timely piece ol work. Notwithstand
ing his denial, Ilatchfich! has an accom
plice in the city, and the police were look
ing for him last night.
The police authorities of the city de
serve much praise lor their skillful work
yesterday in running this dangerous
criminal to earth ami placing him behind

Considering that the Sentinel is a weekly,

Mr. A. Whitlock is not to remove to
the new Coiqicr building, now going tip
on South Main street. He will remain
where he is, the only change lieing hi the
character of his business, which will lie
exclusively in gentlemen's goods, instead
of the present general stock. The corner
store will be one ol the largest gentle
men's emporiums in the South when the
present line is closed out.
