members of the Convention assembled at

to the welcome oration from one of the

journed to the printing establishment of
MESSES. EDWARDS AND BKOrOHTON,
where it was received by a few most elo
quent remarks from Rev. Dr. Pritchftrd in
behalf of the firm, and a table loaded with
cakes, ice cream, .strawberries, &c. Maj.
Engelhanl responded on the part of the
Press in his usual happ- style, after which
some one horrified the assembly by a pun
on the cream and berries, thereby lugging
in the all absorbing topics of bury and cre
mation. The unhappy perpetrator of . this
pun was excused from any further remarks.
The members of the Press were shown over
the large job department of Messrs. Ed
wards k Broughton, and saw much per
taining to the business of the craft with
which they were unacquainted. - The 'Edi
tors next visited the

This institution is still in process of
building, the work going slowly on, being
done almost entirely by convict and at
little cost to the State. The penitentiary
containes little of interest to the cursory
visitor, and hence the Press folks were
w illing enough to tain from it to other
walls, where persons were alike' confined
and taught, but where the bonds, were not
stockades and muskets but love and
reverence, and ghis were taught for spheres
of usefulness and respect -in the world.

The Press association was escorted into
the magnificent drawing-room, where it
was repeiyed by Dr. Smedea, tto-Prin.ci-
pal of the school, in an eloiipent and well
conceived speech, to which Maj. Englehard
responded on the part of the Press, after
which Judge Gaston' patriotic poem,

vention was most hospitably received, Rev.

he Raleigh Female
Seminary is a Baptist institution under the
charge of Mr. F. P. ilobgood, a gentlemen
apparently fully qualified for the impor
iajit position he holds. It is barely two
years 'old, but its full corps of competent
professor? and the large patronage it has
received show that it has already estab
lished itself as one of the permanent insti
tutions of our State. A special musical
programme had been prepared for the oc
gasion under the direction of Prof. Von My
ertioff, the most attractive and novel piece
being one called "The history of the
United States," composed by the Professor
himself. When the music arrived to that
portion of our history representing the " lat e
unplcasafttnesp," in which one half of the
crowd of girts would sing " Dixie " and
the other half " Yankee Doodle," the en
thusiasm of the audience bust forth iu the
wildest applause. - From this school the
line of march w as directed to
a Presbyterian school, deriving its name
from an old citizen of Raleigh who con
tributed most liberally towards the erection
of the building. The location of this
school is excellent, and the building the
largest and best arranged of all similar es
tablishments in North Carolina. Its Prin
cipals, Rev. R. Burwell & Son, have had
long experience and are well known as
first among the educators of our State.
Here too the editors w ere most cordially
received' and entertained. The music by
the young ladies was much appreciated, as
was demonstrated by repeated encores.
The most pleasing feature at this school,
new and strikingly beautiful, was the sys
tem of Calisthenics which the yon:ig ladies
practiced for the entertainment of their
audience. Space forbids more than a mere
mention of this exercise, suffice it to say,
it was beautiful, graceful and health-giv
ing. From Peace Institute the Convention

business man can afford to take down Lis
sign, nor withdraw the pleasing influence
of a weekly chat with his customers
through the newspapers. For a business
man to stop advertising would be equiva
let to saying, " I have stopped business,
and ask no favors of the people."
Messes. Poole & Hunt. AVe would
again call the attention of our readers, and
especially those who are interested in
machinery, to the advertisement of Messrs.
Poole fc Hunt, so widely and favorably
know n as Engineers, Founders and Machin
ists. Their new Pattern and Price Lists,
with many valuable additions, are now
ready for distribution, and will be sent,
postage-paid, to those who make application
for them. They have also on hand a large
and comprehensive list of miscellaneous
Hymenial. On Tuesday, 12th hist., at
the residence of the bride's father, old
Hymen entered and claimed from a party
of young people, Mr. Ben. J. Cloman and
Miss Fannie Staton as fit subject to enter
the holy bonds of matrimony. Elder P.
D. Golds officiated in linking their fates.
They were married at 11 oclock, A. M.
and with their waiters started for Hamil
ton, their future home. The trip was a
very pleasant one, for Sol was kind enough
to conceal himself from view, and the
clouds so considerate as not to pour forth
their water drop, for fear that some of the
disappointed lovers might, if sympathized
with, be unable to control their feelings.
Only one thing occurred to disturb the
monotony of our crowd, and that was a
regular " smash up," of one of the buggies,
fortunately the parties were not in Deep
Creek when spilled. A hearty welcome
and a beautiful table awaited us. After
we had partaken of a delicious supper, w e
attended a dance given complimentary to
the wedding parti-. Next morning, we all
drove down to see the quiet Roanoke, over
whose waves the Cannon and Astoria make
their way to Hamilton. The beautiful
trees draped with hanging moss, and the
lovely rose vines are the chief attractions
The farmers are looking hopeful, for
their cotton has all peeped out, to nod to
the young com. They expect soon to or
ganize a " Grange " in that vicinity. I
hope that our sister will not, (localise of
her marriage,) lose all interest, in the cause
of the Grangers, but may she still perse
vere and lend a helping hand to their aid.
May God protect the newly married pair,
and may He shower His manifold blessings
upon them in the richest effusion.
ubordinate granges of Edgecombe,
M:irtin, AYilsou, Nash, Halifax, Norlhomp
tw", ; nd any other counties desiring so
t -j do, are requested to meet at Rocky
Mount, on the Grd Wednesday in Juno

Dr. Wade's Liver Corrector j
Cure For Dyspepsia.
AVii,L3AMSBfKO, Greenbrier Co., AV. A'a.
Messrs. Wade, Boykiu & Co.,
Baltimore, Maryland :
Gents. I used three or four bottles of
your "Liver Corrector" last summer for mv
trouble, D YSPEPSI A.and got more relief
from it than from any medicine that I have
ever taken. So great was my suffering I was
notable to do anMhinar, was taken with
numbness and giddiness when I would rise '
up suddenly or when I rode on horseback, or ;
in other words, was in a manner dead for ;
twelve months, and not no relief from any j
medicine until 1 found your '-Liver Correc-
tor. "My health is now steadily ad rapidly !
iniprovin'r. Yours irratefullv.
Prof. Moorman, Emeritus of the Has;- 1
imlon University of Md, now Resident Phy- !
eician at the White Sulphur Springs, whose i
opportunity for testing its merit is extensive,
says: "Dr. Wade's Liver Corrector and Dys- i
pepsia Cure is one ol the very best remedies
for Dyspepsia I nave ever useu.
Dits. Jones & Jordan, prominent medical
men in Mcclenbnrg Co., A'a,, who have sold
and prescribed it for two years, say: "they
can find no better remedy lor the purpose
intended, than the Liver Corrector."
Col. Goode, a pron incnt and unusually
intelligent gentleman in tbc same county of
A'a., Bays : "he keeps it regularly in his fam
ily and would not be Without It. "
