MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS.
Pursuant to not ice published in the col
umns of this paper a meeting of the stock
holders of the Edgecombe Female Semina
ry was held at the Court House last
Wednesday, at 11 o'clock A. M. The
meeting was called to order by the election
of Dr. N. J. Pittman as Chairman. Mr.
E. R. Stamps was requested to net as
On motion a committee, consisting of
Messrs. Wm. S. Battle, Fred. Phillips and
M. Weddell, was appointed to ascertain
whether a quorum was in attendance. The
roll being called, it was found that one
hundred and eight shares were represented,
either in person or by proxy.
On motion it was decided that verbal
proxies were entitled to be voted.
The Chairman then called upon Mr.
Wa S. Battle to state the object of the
meeting, which he did, accompanying his
statement with and informal report of the
Board of Directors and a few reuarks in
advocacy of the enterprise. He reported
that the Directors had procured a plan for
the building and submitted it to an archi
tect who estimated the cost of its comple
tion -at about $20,000, that a contract had
been entered into for the brick,but that the
work had lieen stopped on account of the
failure of a large portion of the Stock
holders to respond to the assessments.
The Treasurer was then called upon for
an exibit of the financial condition of the
company, and submitted the following.
We omit particulars :
Amount Stock subscrilied $li,400 00
' " received, 2,:)01 00
paid out, 2,860 00
Balance on hand, $ l 2o
On motion of Gen. W. G. Lewis the fol
lowing resolution was submitted to a stock
Resolved, That the Board of Directors
be instructed to force the collection of all
instalments not paid. To call for instal
ments as needed and enforce their collec
tion. And that they proceed to continue
the work on the building to completion, or
until all funds that can lie collected lie ex
tended. Resolved fcuihei?, That the Board of
Directors use every exertion to increase the
subscription to $25,000.
This motion was lost by a vote of 70
nays to 54 ayes.
The following resolution was then intro
duced by E. R. Stamps, Esq., and after
much discussion and numerous participants,
was unanimously adopted, to wit :
Resolved, That the Board of Directors
lie instructed to proceed at once to enforce
the collection of the 1st and 2nd instalments
The meeting then adjourned to meet
again at the call of the Directors.

Sad Denouement. Our readers remem

relating to a mishap, which befell Dr. Bo

He rejoiced in the French nomenclature of
De Shields. With potent persuasion and
mesmeric magnetism, he poured into the
too confiding ear of madam Boges his tales
of the "lake of Como." She heard and
heeded. Fancied bliss tinted all her day
dreams. On the one hand grey hairs and
stateness, on the other youth, pulchritude
and love. As a couple of young pigeons
they took flight at dark of night. They

presto !" the scene shifts. The male pi
geon emerges into a first-class hawk. She
trusted to wicked man. She loved him,
albeit with sinful love. She desired him
to appear well, therefore she loans him her
gold watch. He must smoke fine cigars
and splurge. She lets him carry the purse.
Alack the day ! On the morning following
she finds herself in the same condition in
which she and her paramour left the bacch
analian doctor, sans a mate. De Shields,
watch, money, all gone, and the weeping
damsel disconsolate and distressed alone in

Oca Town. It is certainly tine that
there is something in a name. We heard
a gentleman from South Carolina on one
occasion say, that he expected to find our
town (on account of its name) a dirty,
thoroughly carbonized little village, with
no evidence of refinement and no signs of
business except piles of barrels of tar, and
was astonished on visiting it to see one of
the handsomest villages he knew. And
now comes the evidence of a Raleigh News
" I was much surprised to see the differ
ence between Tarlxro as it is and Tarboro
as I thought it. I had been under the im
pression, partly from its name, location
and age, that it was a dilapidated, rough
country town, whereas it is really one of the
prettiest and most refined looking towns in
the State. It can boast of a large number
of elegant private residences, situated in
well kept and tastefully arranged grounds,
and has many handsome business struc
tures. The merchants seem to be doing a
flourishing and prosperous trade, and their
stocks of goods seem to be well selected
and very large for so small a place. 1 ar-
boro is also quite an important cotton mar
ket, over 15,000 bales were sold during the
year ending September last, and the prices
obtained will compare favorably with those
of any market under like circumstances.

For the Enquirer-Southerner.
Baltimore, Jan. :J1, 1874.
Mr. Editor : I have been endeavoring,
during the past week, to gather reliable in
formation, relative to cotton aud its pros
pects, from Commission Merchants, but on
all sides I have met only stinted opinions,
which were given in a way that impressed
me with the firm conviction that the givers
knew is little about the subject matter of
my search as I did. One thing, however,
I learned from my observations. I found
the merchants impressed with the belief
that a larger crop was made last year than
returns, to December inchoated. This lie
lief may be accurate, but, its only founda
tion, is based on the fact the "stock on
hand " is greater than it lias been for years, i
at this season, and daily receipts are cor
respondingly larger. I may lie wrong but
I am inclined to the belief that the cause
of the present large " stock on hand " is
attributable to the late panic, and therefore
not an evidence of a larger yield than has
been reported. It is well known that the
stringent effects of the Panic were not felt,
in the South, for some weeks after it de
moralized New York, and hence the ne
cessity of forcing cotton on the market, or
into the hands of country buyers, did not
occur until some six or eight weeks after
the Panic had exhausted itself North.
Viewing the matter in this light, and I
think the position is tenable, you will
readily see that a large amount of cotton
was forced into the hands of country buy
ers during November and Decemlier and
after reflecting for a moment you will also
see that it is very probable that the large
receipts and immense "stock on hand " is
the indirect result of the Panic through
country buyers, who could not hold their
purchases very long, as it became necessary
for them to realize so as to meet their pay
ments before the spring trade. Add the
alwve forced sliipments and the general
shipments at the season, together and, in
my Lumble opinion, y ou have the true
causa of the unprecedented receipts and
"stock on hand " for January 1874. Be
fore the Panic two bales of cotton were
worth verv near w hat they would bring
afterwards and hence, if the cotton had
remained m the hands of the producer and
no panic had occurred, onlv two bales
would have had to have been shipped, by
him, to meet his liabilities, where he was
forced to sacrifice three bales to the coun
try buyer, who, because he could not hold
it or sell at home had to ship to another
market for sale, thereby swelling the re
ceipts and " stock on hand " in proportion
as 3 is to 2. Now it seems clear to me
that the outlook for cotton is not as gloomy
as some are disposed to consider it, for just
as soon aa the Panic shipments are dis
posed of and stop flowing into the large
marts, the legitimate demands and corres
ponding decrease of receipts, w ill lighten
and make the market stronger. It will
not be more than thirtv davs liefore this
result will come alxmt and all who have
cotton, and can hold it that long, will be
the recipients of better price. The next
thirtv davs will also decide what course
Congress intends to yiersue relative to our
circulating medium and the decision of
that point will unquestionably be benefi
cial to cotton. 1 hardlv think it requires
more than a visit to Washing.. n, durintr a
debate ou the financial question, to decide
what the action of ( 'ongress will be, for it
is very evident that the Representatives of
the 'West aud South are determined to give
us " inflation. hat this couie will re
sult in " no fellow can find out " just yet,
but 1, for one, think inflation will prove
an injurv to Use commercial interests of
the cotintrv as well as to the fanning com
munities. We need free banking but not
more currency. One will allow monev to
lie handled where it is most needed, and
thereby do much good, while the other
will unsettle values and thereby do great
injury. My financial bump may lie de
ceiving and leading me astray, in this mat
ter, but its conclusions are very positive
so positive that I have lieen induced to pen
them for the consideration of vour readers.
In conclusion I would savthat if the farm
ers of your section desire to be classed
among the wise men of 1874 they will
plant less cotton and more of the necessary
requirements of their families and stock.

Edgecombe Female Seminary. The
proceedings of the meeting of the stock
holders of this institution, which took place
last Wednesday, will be read w ith interest
by many of our people. It was feared by
many of the friends of the Seminary, that
the hostility to the enterprise, which was
known to- exist, together with the tight
times in money matters, would produce
such a damper upon the meeting that it
would be powerless, and that probably the
matter would be finally abandoned. But
discussion elicited warmth, and warmth
aroused enthusiasm, and the meeting ad
journed with perhaps brighter prospects
than at any previous time, the friends of
the institution esteeming it a victory in
getting through the resolution for the
enforcement of the instalments al
ready called for. If a greater ef
fort is made among our country friends
this spring the Edgecomlie Female Semina
rv may vet lie built.
