Wc take the following from the l-'ay-
cttevillc Observer. It has relation to
the I'nitcd States arsenal which stood
on the brow of the hill known as Hay
Mount, overlooking the town of l-'ay-
ctLeville. It had been made a most beau
tiful place, principally under the long ad
ministration of Captain, afterwards Col.
liradford of the artillery. He was a gen
tleman of taste and culture, and in the
piping times of peace, of leisure; and
that leisure he bad spent to improve and
heuutify the grounds and buildings until

We lea i-ed yesterday with peculiar n-
rel that this very good and very useful
nan had died at his home on Mills River,
in Henderson county on Friday last of
pneumonia. It is as if we, and many
ithers also for whom we could speak, had
lost a good old friend. More than once on
inrroad to 1 ransvlvania court, or on
mr return, we have stopped at his beau
tiful home in the valley, and the cheer of
his fireside was not brighter nor more
rateful than the geniality of his manner

ways seemed lo us that his temper and
his expression had drawn their inspira

Asheville Tobacco Association, gives us
the following official figures tor the
month of October:

Aggregating in money o',ol i.tM
verage price per hundred $15.75
This certainly presents a most gratify
ing showing for Asheville as a market.
The average of $15.75 per hundred is al
most equal to any for ner prices for the
same month in the history of this city
as a tobacco centre, and should lead our
farmers to conclude that thcv can do as
well, if not better, by placing their to
bacco on the floors of Asheville ware
houses than by sending it to loreign mar
kets where they can in no way superin
tend the disposal of it.
It is rarely the case that so much to
bacco is placed on the market so early in
the season, yet we are told by those com
petent to know that it is thought one-
half of the entire crop will be sold before
Christmas. This is not only thought by
tobacco tobacco buyers here, but wc
learn that Danville and other tobacco
markets arc lieiug crowded in the san.e
way, and it may be stated with almost
certainty, that the crop of this State and
Virginia will be nearly if not quite half
sold by January first.
