In 1879, on the death of Adjutant General William 8. Mc Caulley, M[♦Poslles was appointed lo succeed liiin, which is the only politi cal oftioe lie evor liad. He ie a gentle man of genial manners, first class mind and sound business ability, and as Wilmington's representative in tlie chief Legislative body of the State will undoubtedly prove a complete success. HENRY CLAY TURNER, ; the candidate for Representative, is a native of ibis city aud a lawyer by profession. 1 Ie received his educatii >u mainly at public school No. 4, and while there was one of a somewhat celebrated "first class" taught by Miss Vandovcr, which numbered among its members Henry C.

HATH HD AY KVKNINO'S PERFORMANCE^ There wss a small audience present at the Opera House on Saturday evening to witness the first presentation in this city of the "Boy Martyrs,"a military dram, founded upon the battle of North Point, lu 1814. well that the audience was small in numbers as the play did not deseive a larg'- audience. If it is a dra ma, it is oue of worst that has ever been pre euted on the «tage here. In (act one of Buffalo Bill's scalping plays is for moro preferable to that of the *TJoy Marty is." It lacks effect. There is nothing in it to make it a go. It is de void of characters that regiure any ability to till. The manuel in which tlie play was presented on Saturday night, led one to believe very strongly that the company were making their parts upon the stage, fur ut times it dragge 1 to such a drgree. and the a aits were so long that a person was tempted to leave the house. Th« representations of a battle,were the mosi miserable failures ever seen on the Opera House stage, called forth any excellent playing of Prof. J. \V.
