John Wksi.sv. The Lecture, delivered
in the Presbyterian Church, on Wednesday
ni'ilit, on tliis remarkable man, by Rev.
E. II. Harding, was a literary production
of genuine merit. The greatness of Wes
ley's work, the low state of morals in the
Establish church and among the ranks
of t!;e Disse-'t, the fearful corruption
among the politicians and Ihe degeneracy
so general in every branch of society at
that time in England, were well depicted,
and the personal character of the great
reformer crnphically drawn. The address
too was clothed in such language and di
versified by such illustrations as showed
the speaker to be a man of extensive lead
ing and accustomed to philosophical analy
sis. We would be glad if we could bear
such discourses more frequently.

DEDICATION vtiE TIIE NEW l'KK
BYTKUIAN CIIURC H IN ;
Pursuant to appointment the committee,
selected by the Orange Presbytery to or
ganize a church and dedicate the new buil
ding in Tarboro', met hr-ro last Friday.
Before, however, we notice the dedicatory
services it may not be amiss to give some
account of the building.
The plans of the Presbyterian Church
were drawn by Mr. Oibson, Architect,
Richmond, Ya., but were modified to such
an extent in building that they can scarce
ly be called the same designs. The origi
nal drawings were more elaborate iu finish,
in both the inner and outer side, but were
reduced to a Treat extent on account of
their cost. The practical operation of
building was under the supervision of our
townsman, Mr. Lawrence Winbor.rne, who
has in this house shown himself a carpen
ter of more than ordinary merit, the work
having b.v.i done in a most s.itisfactory
manner, and has thus left a monument of
his skill. The interior of the ImibliuLT
struck all with its display of neatness
and taste, and harmony in all its relations.
The walls were beautifully frescoed by Mr.
E. Zoeller, of our town, an artist worthy
of a more extended field of operations, and
produced a most pleasing effect to the eye
by the arrangement- of the shades of colors,
as well as by the softness given to the
light. The carpet too upon the isles, the
generous donation of Mr. O. ('. Farrar, did
much towards beautifying the room, us
well as adding much to the comfort of the
audience and preventing- the noise conse
quent upon walking on bare floors. The
building is heated by a furnace and is com
modious and comfortable. Its cost ap
n Friday night the Church was dedica
ted, Rev. E. II. Harding, of Milton,
preaching the dedicatory sermon. The
services were solemn and improsive, and
were listened to by a large ami attentive
audience. On Saturday . night a sermon
was preached by Rev. C. L. Ynsg, of New
berti, after which the Church was formally
organized w ith sixteen tvsi.lcn and eight
non-resident member?, and with ( apt. J.
F. dimming and Mr. II. A. "Walker, as
Ruling Elders, and Can- Orren Williams
and Mr. E. R. Stamps, as Deacons. O i
Sunday morning Rev. Mr. Vass delivered
a sermon on the ecclesia-tic.tl polity of the
Presbyterian Church, and the o'diccis elect
were ordained by the laying on of tb' Lands
of the Presbytery. Sunda evening the
S ililia'. h : c'.ioo! was organized by the !.
tion of Cap!. J. D. ( 'umming, Superinten
dent, and tiie children eic addr sscd by
Rex . Mesr. Harding a;! Ya--, and by
Mr. I'.tt.-, Elder ir. the Washington
Church. Serv ices were .'ilso held o;i the
nights of Sunday, Monday Tuesday,

A I.e. i i kk. AImhU a year ago the
Council of Friends of Temperance, at this
place. Inaugurated a system ot monthly
lectures, on literar aud other topics, for
the entertainment :; its members mid to
add to the interest of its meetings. It was
thought by some that the plan would be
soon abolished, but instead thereof it has
constantly increased in interest.
The Lust meeting l.cm the time for the
monthly lecture, Dr. Jo-. II. Baker, who
had been elected a few weeks before for
the purpose, delivered a most highly enter
taining address, on "Woman and her in
fhienccs upon Society ," to the largest as
semblage ever met on a similar occasion
since the formation of the society. The
Dr.'s lecture indicated thought, observation
and reading and, -was truly appreciated hy
bis audience. We hope the Temperance
Council may prevail upon him to give the
community the benefit of his address by
delivering it in public.
A New Resoi kce Broom-Stuaw Hay.
The following -appeared in a recent is
sue of the Rural Messenger. It is from
the pen of a highly practical and succc.-s-farmer
of our county, and hence we lay it
before our readers for their consideration :
Since the darkeys were freed the farm
ers of this region find great difficulty in
saying a sufficiency of long forage to feed
their teams. Coin fodder is almost the
only kind except oats in use here. The
savmg of louder is as disagreeable work as
any done on the farm, and the negro will
resort, to all kinds of excuses to keep out of
the fodder fields ; and they arc becoming
more and more loath every ye; r to save
Last fall, knowing I should be short of
long feed, I thought I woidd try some
thing in which I had little faith. I cut a
quantity of broom-straw hay in September,
with the Buck-eye mower. I am now sat
isfied it should have been cut 1.5 or 20
days earlier, as a portion of it was iu full
bloom at the time of cutting. For four or
five weeks I have been feeding this hay to
my mules. They eat it readily, fully as
well as they do crab-grass hay, and are in
better condition than usual, considering
the extra work they had to do this win
ter. If farmers will save some of this hay
next August, they will no longer buy
Northern hay at a cost of one and a half
to two dollars per hundred.

MEETING OF COMMISSIONERS.
Pursuant to a notice previously publish- j
cd in this paper, a meeting of the Seaboard .
fc Raleigh Railway Commission was held
at Adams' Hotel, Tarboro', cn iasl S:Uur- '
day, the 1-ith inst: Present, Commission- ;
crs Rogers, Robes ;n, Slaton and Lanier. 1
The object of the meeting was to open 1
books tor subscription of stock, and such
other business requisite for pn limary or
ganization. The Charter of the road provides that
2,000 shares of stock shall be subscribed

,t l - .w,,:..!..
It liaving be'n ttscertained that
over that number of sluues had been taken,
and the requisite cash payment made, the
Stockhol.lers then met and appointed the
5lu of March next, at the Astor House,
x- , r .i , i n',
New vrk, for the meeting to elect Direc-
tors and complete the permanent organiza
tion ot ti:e coin .any.
It is the purpose of the Stockholders to
have a thorough survey of the entire route
from Tarboro' to Raleigh made at the earliest
day practicable, after which the Directors
will be instructed to precn! the entire plan
of operation to the citizens of the arious
counties through which the road is propos
ed to run, asking their support and assis
tance t a bunted extent, but only iu such
a manner as will secure the
of the road and :( proper application of
their subscriptions. The Stockholders
guarantee to build the road as soon as the I
people evince il.eir desire to l ave it by a j
somewhat libera! subscription. j
An important feature in the Charter of
this road is, that subscriptions can hereaf- j
ter be paid in wood, labia- or material, in- !
ste ul of cash, thus opening a market aud a !
valuable industrial enterprise in the com- :
munit'.cs through which the road passes.
15v this means nu-ny Stockholders may re- i
alize profits enough out of
to pay for their stock.
Charters are now being

taken sick Wednesday, had two congestive

fully believe and hope it was the eternity of
peace and blissful abode, where rivers of
pleasure flow over the bright plains and the
; noontide of Glory eternally reigns.
She died very easily, in no pain at ail. ar.d
