THE KIEW (iOI.l) UISCVKKI1-:S.
The gold discoveries in Montgomery
county in this State are the most re
markablc made on the North American
continent since those of California in
184-8. And yet that section has lx.111
known lor many years as a gold region
of remarkable richness, nnd sometimes
pieces or nuggets of large since have been
found. We remember to have seen in til
hands of Mr. Sam Christian, who gav
name to the celebrated Christian mine,
piece of pure gold for which he received
$10,000. That whole section, embracing
Mnntimmerv. Stanley. Rowan, Cabar
rus and Mecklenburg, is a gold regi
It was in Cabarrus that in the early par
of this century, the great nugget
twenty-eight pounds was picked u
iirnorantlv laid aside bv the timli
manv vears as a pretty, hut
curiositv. Vears after the placer .nine
in Burke and Rutherford were discovered
and in 18:J3, nnd for vears after, the
rush to those fields was similar to the ex
citenient that attended the early days
California discoveries. Several million
of dollars were taken out, and the wash
ings are still profitably worked, thong
on diminished scale. One outcome
these mines was the establishment of tl
Hechtler coinage for the supply of a loc,
currency : and the standard hncucss an
exact weight of the $1. $L'.uO and
Hechtler pieces was so recognized thii
they passed current at their lace value ti
over the United Stales the only instance
on record of private coinage holding i
own admitted equality alongside the a
thorized emissions ot the govcrnmcn
The account of the Montgomery dis
coveries, which we find in the Salisbury
Watchman of the 1th, is so interesting
that we make the following ex trad
from it :
The discovery was made on a piece
land controlled bv Mr. 1'. C. Saunders
but which belonged to a brother in
Texas- The discovery was made ucci
dently by a young man who was out
turkey hunting, ami work was at once
begun in washing the surlace. While this
was being done three little stringers or
veins were unentered which were nearly
all gold. The find was keptquietas long
as possible, but when it became generally
known the brother was telegraphed for.
and he replied to stop the work at once
until his arrival. Our representative
happened on the ground at a very in
opportune time, being only a few hours
utter the hands had been ordered to stop
work, and for this reason could not see
the work in progress but from inter
views had with the men, and from what
he saw he does not hesitate in saying
that Mr. Carter's statement in regard to
the bushel was correct.
About hall of l his gold was taken out
of the top surface and the remainder from
three parallel stringers or veins about
eight teet apart and about one-half inch
in thickness. Two of these veins have
been sunk to the depth of about twenty
feet, while the other has a depth of only
a few feet.
The people in the neighborhood are all
verv much excited over the find, and
very naturally so. They now talk ol
gold by the pound, while heretofore, it
was only by the grain.
Our representative was told by several
parties, whom he knew and had confi
dence in, that on the afternoon of the
last day they worked that one man took
out with only a pick, and in a very short
time, probably two hours, over 2,000
penny weiglitsof gold; that two young
menMorris and Cornelison, washed out
in a day and a-half over ten and one-hall
pounds of gold ; that one man got per
mis ion to work on the tailings, and
rocked out 42 pennyweights in three
rockerfulls, and was thenstopicd. Many
other storios of a like kind were told,
which for lack of space we omit. Our
representative, who is a practical miner,
ofl'ered $10 for the privilege of working
two hours, but was asked $50 for that
All this was learned on the eround,
and we are satisfied that it is as near
correct as is possible to get at the facts.
The property is situated in a gold
bearing belt, extending many miles, in
which large quantities of gold have lieen
found in the creeks nnd gulches, and then
are thousands of places in the neighbor
hood where the outside indications are
better lor gold than where tins was
Other late finds our representative
neara 01 in me same ncignooruoou,
notably, those of a darkey who
who alone took out over $1,000 in less
than two weeks, and that of the Nail
land, on which big finds had been made,
one nugget weighing over a pound all
within the past month.
LATE CHIEF JI HVICE SMITH.
The announcement of the unexpected
death of this distinguished man fell with
heavy stroke upon the hearts of the peo
ple of North Carolina. He was a man
beloved, respected, admired and trusted
by all with not a single disparagement
to any quality of heart, head or charac
ter. He had lived his long life with con
stant accession to admiration and confi
dence, and, taken away in the fullness of
years, he seemed to be only in the matur
ity of his capacities and bis usefulness.
He bad been the great lawyer, the astute
and able politician, and ripened into the
great judge. In all, he was the good man,
the useful citizen, the upright magistrate,
and the pure and bumble Christian.
We defer to the Raleigh News-Observer
for tbc information relative to his life
and its incidents, using the following ex
tract from the rery interning editorial
from tbc Friday's issue of that paper:
His father was William L. Smith, a
native of Lyme, Connecticut, who having
graduated at Yale College in the year
1802, studied medicine, removed to
Hertford county, married there in 1810,
and died in 1813. His mother was Ann
Harrell, of the well known family of that
name in Hertford county. He was born
at Murfreesboro, September 24-th, 1812.
Alter graduating at Vale Lollege 111 ine
,-enr 1834, Judge sinitn remninco at mi
lima Mater and studied law at the Yale
Law School, alter which he oiitaineci
license to practice in the courts ot tins
State and settled in his native place,
here he continued 111 extensive practice
itil March, 1870, when he removed to
Norfolk, Virginia, without, however.
banriomng his business bclore tue norm
Carolina courts. Two years were suth-
cient to satisfy Mr. Smith that there was
no place like 'home, and he accordingly
returned to North Carolina to spend the
remainder ol his days, since which time
he has been a resident of the city of Kal
eil?.!V . ...
The onlv position 111 ine one 01 i'
fessiou heid by Mr. Smith before his ap
pointment as'Chief Justice -y Governor
Vance in miliary, 187U, was that ol
Solicitor for the State in the first judicial
district, then composed often counties in
the northeastern portion 01 tne Mate, 10
which he was hist elected Uy the icgisia-
11 re at its session held ill the winter ot
1siu'49. This office he held lor lour
years when he was again c!e ted by the
legislature lor a sunuar term. j
In political hie Mr. Smith at limes
took an aclive part, ami ircqiicnuy "
iiiililie station. He belonged to theschool
of politicians known as Old Line Whigs.
In 1840 he w as elected to the House 01
Commons, as 11 was tnen caueo, mm
1848 was elected to the senate from Ins
native county. In 1857 he was thecau-
lidate of the W hiL' liartv lor congress 111
his distrkt, but was defeated though
onlv bv a very small maionty. In 18.
he was renominated and elected uy a
irge majority. ISv this time the sec
tional feeling beiwccn the North and
he South had liecomc so strong mat 010
inrtv lines were well nigh broken down
ind'Mr. Smith was ielectcd by the
Southern representatives as their cumu
late tor SH.ukcr ol the Mouse 01 Repre
sentatives. Alter a long struggle, anu
manv ballotiugs, 111 whu h he lacked only
one vote of an election, he was defeated
bv Mr. I'ennington, of New Jersey, lie
remained in his seat until the close of the
-cssion of congress, and was present at
the inauguration of I'residcnt Lincoln
He was also a member of the Con
li ilrrate cotiL'ress duriiiL' the existence o
that body. In 1805 he was again elected
ki ilie House of Commons, and took
part in the reconstruction of the State
under the plan ol riesineni louusou
The outcome of the Karmers' Congress
recently held in Montgomery, Alabama
seems to involve a political trick, a pur
pose to commit the Southern people or
Southern soil, to the doctrine ot protec
tion. The majority resolutions do not
condemn the doctrine of protection ; they
approve them, but they suggest an alto
gether delusive idea of retaliation by de
manding protection for all farm pro
ducts, when it is crlcclfully patent that
attempted protection would result in
the annihilation of most of them as sub
jects of profit. ( Hir farmers have no mo
nopoly of the great staples, cotton, to
hacco, rice, w heat, wool or any of them.
The only large interest out of these pro
ducts on which protection was tried as
an aid to the farmer in wool, which, alter
a sufficient test, has been followed uy a
decided diminution in the sheep industry;
and also at the sametime, by the force ol
duties levied on foreign wool, added a
hundred per cent to the cost of clothing,
blankets, etc., and the imposition of an
inferior article of use. Ill these resolu
tions, the wool interest is the cat in the
meal tub. The vote on the resolutions
prove this. The whole Northern and
Northwestern vote inclined that way.
The vote of the Southern men did not
have the dust throw n in their eves. They
were out voted, but they clung to the
ideas of tarilT reform.
The selection ol the South for a declar
ation of protective principles will accom
plish nothing. It appears to be a fraud,
a triumph of Northern principles on
The proposition to colonize American
negroes in Mexico meets with some favor,
because most of the immigration conies
from the cotton lielt of the I'nited States,
and the immigrants are familiar with
the culture and management of the great
staple. The introduction of that staple
would be of great advantage to Mexico,
which has abundant lands and climate
suitable to its successful culture. On the
other hand, the project meets some op
position on the ground, that the republic
is already full enough of mixed or differ
ent races, the Indian peons or laboring
class contributing four-fifths of the popu
lation. The pure Spanish blood is in
small proportion, while the crosses be
tween nil are so numerous as to defy
liinguage to define them with name and
P. W. McKiuney Talks.
Captain P. W. McKinney, the demo
cratic Governor-elect of Virginia, in an
interview a few days ago, remarked that
it was with a great deal of pleasure he
could say that throughout the campaign
he met with not a single indignity of any
kind. No one ever hooted or hissed him,
and he was confident that no man ever
made a more thorough canvass, he hav
ing missed but oneappomtment. He never
saw the democrats so thoroughly or
ganized and the republicans so disrupted
in his life as they were, and for full two
months More the election he hadn't had
the slightest doubt about the party'ssuc
