saw a two horse wagon rial down the

the house. Then two men stepped Irom
the wagon, drew a coffin from the rear
end, brought it through the gateway on
to the porch toward the door, when it
disappeared because it had left my line of

WHY MAHONE W1I.I. LOSE.
A Viritinla Ki-purtlicau Sayw That
Nobody Can TruHt Mini.
?rotn the Philadelphia North American
A Northern gentleman, who has lived
in Virginia for several years, sends the
following letter apropos of the Republi-
an State Convention, which though not
written for publication, is so interesting
that it is presented to our readers:
"There is no more prospect of Mahouc
arrving the State this fall than there is
in his going to heaven in a railroad hand
car. 1 was closeted with Lol. Lamb,
Mahoue's heretofore ablest assistant in
this Slate, for one hour last Wednesday.
He told me frankly he was sick of Ma-
iouc and his meanness, as he expressed
it, in putting histwo sous on the Govern
ment. Lamb will positively refuse to so
in lull us touch the nomination for Gov
ernor. He will insist on Mahoue's tak
ing it himself. As he has so led the party
that no one can possibly lie elected this
fall, it is but just that Mnhone himself
shall bear the defeat. That he will lie
beaten nllMic way from ten to fifty thou
sand is clear to all who know what is
going on. I do not believe for one mo
ment that he cxiect8 to carry the State.
He got all he wanted before. He got
control of the party machinery that is,
the right to grab ull your deluded North
ern Republican' money that will lie sent
here and it you Northern Republicans
keep on feeding him with your money
he will send the party to a receiver, ns he
did his Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio
"1 am a Republican from away back to
IKoG, but no inducement would make
me or my two sons vote his ticket. Of
the ten to twelve thousand Northern
men who have come here since 1S65 not
five hundred will vote his ticket this fall.
Besides, the negroes distrust him since
hisquarrel with Langston.so he will lose
.five to ten thousand of their votes this
time. There are at least twenty thou
sand Republicans here who will cither
vote a Democratic ticket or stay away
from the polls. It will be a C. J. Folgcr
or a Pattison campaign. Do not think
for a moment that I am grunting over a
disappointment in not getting an office,
as 1 have not applied for one and do not
want it. 1 am perfectly indccndcnt of
ottice-huntiug. 1 his is a Republican
State on n fair issue, and no mistake
about it, but with Mahone in the lend it
is useless to contest it, as we have no
confidence in his integrity. He will sell
us out as soon ns he did the Democrats,
and we know it and will not trust him."

Yesterday was all that had been antic
ipated. The weather proved to be favor
able, after a morning of cloud and shower
over which the sun gained an occasional
and finally a controlling mastery. But
loul or fair, the people of the country
around were determined not to foregi
their participation in one of the most in
tcresting occasions that ever transpired
ill the county of Haywood; and from
early dawn until 10 o'clock, every road
leading into Waynesville was thronged
with vehicles of all descriptions, car
nages, buggies, wagons of all kinds ii
which whole families found a place, lath
ers, mother's, daughters, children, babies
and the highways presented an almost
unbroken cavalcade of men on horses
and mules, filling up the beautiful camp
grounds, though not crowding them; for
they were ample, being on a beautiful
grass covered flat on thesparkling waters
of Richland creek, dotted at intervals
with the majestic rcmainsof aoncegrand
forest of giant poplars, buckeyes and
beeches. And iu the wide intervals the
groups as they arrived disposed them
selves at their convenience in friendly or
neighborhood parties, and made their
arrangements for comfort or hospitality.
It was a such a gathering as is rarely
seen for its presentation of a noble popu
lation, intelligent, decorous, well dressed
and animated by feelings impressed with
the dignity, or rather the solemnity, of this
great gathering; for it was one full o
painful memories, aroused by the presence
of the remnant of survivors out of the
hosts that the counties represented sent
forth to battle and who never returned
And a natural feeling of sadness over
shadowed what would otherwise have
been a joyous, perhaps noisy, crowd.
The weather itself seemed in sympathy
with the pervading sentiment, which did
not find expression in grief or in tears,
but in tender, subdued emotion; and the
misty clouds as they rolled iu fleecy vol
umes along the sidesof the adjacent high
and beautifttl mountains, - ciling the
brightness of the sun for the while anil
dissolving themselves iu a suffusion of
moisture rather than in outpouring ol

The number present was between l-.ooo
and li.oOO; probably the latter number
is nearer the truth. Of course the greater
number were from Haywood. But there
were large numliers from BuiicoiiiIh-, a
still larger number from Jackson, many
from Swain, Graham and Cherokee, and
a few from Macon and Madison.

Maj. Slringfield was in general com

carrying out all his his arrangements
with clock like precision. The Richland

only reminded of the far greater numlier
that had gone beyond the hearing of an
earthly roll call. He said, in shaking of
man's responsibility to God, that it was
the impulse of the soldier when going
into battle to ask God for protection, iu
coining out of it to thank Him for safety.
And this recognition of the power and
goodness of God, made it appropriate
on this occasion to thank Him that so
many present had been spared the perils
of battle should now join in general
praise and thanksgiving ; and he called
upon the Rev. Mr. Salyar to open the ex

man did with fervor and eloquence.

The Stale Fair.
This is not far oil', and we hope every
part of the State will exert itself to make
it a more successful one than ever. Of it
the Charlotte Chronicle says:
It is a mistake to regard the State
Fair as a local undertaking in behalf of
I he city of Raleigh Strangers who visit
it will not so regard it. They will look
upon it as a State exhibit, and it is
therefore incumbent upon those who
have the material wcilarc of the State
at heart to encourage and support the
Fair, iu behalf of North Carolina.
The Fair should be. as far as possible,
a "biid's-eyc-vicw" of the resources of
the State. That cannot lie fully realized.
But, with the co-operation of the whole
Slate, the Fair can be made an enter
taining exhibit, n wholesome enterprise,
and an advertisement profitable to all
Let everybody who can, lend a helping
hand to the State Fair.
