It is proposed to mafce tuk occasion of the annual decoration of the graves of the dead who fell in battle in the lute war, one of imposing solemnity, expressing a people's admi ration for the patriots who gave their lives in defense of principles they te lleved to be constitutional and just. Re cognizing the honesty and patriotism of both sides, no distinction will be made between the graves Oi the Confederate and Federal soldiers. I take pleasure in communicating the action taken by your fellow-citizens, and respectfully invite your cordial co-operation. I have the honor to be your obedient servant, "COLTON OHEENE, "'h airmail Committee on rroeession." In response to this invitation so cor dially extended, those of you willing to take part on this occasion, are requested 10 meet on tins ( inursd&y) afternoon at 4 o'clock, at the ofllce of Messrs. Pierce & Dix, No. 39 Madison street, to make the necessaryarrangements. In making this call we would remind you that we do honor to ourselves in paying tribute to the memory of those gallant soldiers whose sense of right leu them to take Hides against us. Posterity will tell of a battle of brothers and chant its prcns to the fallen heroes irrespective of the stan dard that led Ihem to the front. To the Hurvivors we are bound by more than ordinary ties; a common country and a community of interest unite us in the various relations of life. And now that the strife is past, and the differ ences reconciled, let us come: forward and add our testimony to the highest quality of manhood the yielding of me tor the cause one advocates. N. D. MENKEN, JAMES A. SWAIN, 11. T. TOMLIN8UN. We make a conspicuous place f.or the above as another strong link in the chain of brotherly love and good feeling which is everywhere in the Union cropping out, much to the disgust of the few who would cherish fraternal hate as a means of perpetuating the official power which they have abused. No man who can lay claim to the least scintilla of patri otism can fail to be moved by this joint appeal of the gray and the blue, and we are sure that all those to whom the effusion is especially addressed will make It a point to swell the ranks of the grand procession of Boldiers and citizens who are to march through our streets and assemble around the "handful of earth" that tells where each one of our heroes lies buried, there to do honor to all alike, whether they wore the blue and defended the Union, or did honor to the gray in lighting for communal inde pendence. Equals in war, they sleep side by side, speaking examples of the peace and good wIU that should prevail witn the living if our Union is to be perpetuated and the States to rest secure against inter nal discord as well as foreign aggression. The manly and dignified letter of Gen eral Colton Greene, couched as it is in terms befitting his high position as the representative of the liviug and the dead of the once Confederate States, has been responded to by Messrs. Menken, Swain and Tomlinson in words that leave nothing to be desired from them and those whom they honorably speak for. Letter and answer are alike in good taste and well attuned to the times. " Recognising the honesty and patriot " ism of both sides," writes General Greene; and Captain Menken and his compatriots respond. " let us come for " ward and add our testimony to the "highest quality of manhood Me " yielding of life for the cause one advo " cafes." No hair-splitting logic or en deavors at convincing or converting. Soldier-like, they agree to regard each from the others stand point of convic tion, give credit and praise where it is due and gather up the glories of both armies as a proud memento, not of strife but of a bravery, courage and endurance that when arrayed for the Union makes us invincible against a world in arms, Responded to as we believe this addrces to all ex-Federal soldiers will be in the spirit it breaths so generously, there can be no question that we shall have a procession on memorial day that will eclipse all previous efforts of any kind in Memphis, and bring about a perfect reunion of the " blue and the gray." North Carolina thus was in fact ilia-first 'r - re J!rlstih col obj, giviag birth to the t British cliiM to America, tfcw Mesa4o be a peculiar fetotB iu b feet th&l nh was first to asnr'. Briiish fretdrm through Ameiicftn independence." But tlie proofs lbt the wa are tco abundant to admit of c'euUl. As tho Times correepondtiit ssjf, there was c mtinued contest between the governor and the assembly, or between thn gov ernor and tho people, or between tho as sembly or courts and tb people. There c nteta were not only frequeut,but they were stubborn, costly, and always vio lent. Sometimes, indewl, the legal gov ernment was wholly subverted the in surgents at one time holding control for over two years. This Anally culminated In the resistance to the stamp-act in 1769, and that in tho independence ef 1775, declared at Mecklenburg, and af terward Indorsed at Philadelphia on the fourth of July, 1776. ! ttc aswt The New York Sun, which is usually well posted in Cuban allairs, perhaps better than any other paper in the Union, not excepting the Jlerald, contends that the withdrawal of the Spaniards from all the interior country eastward of the Trocha, which they had always declared an insuperable barrier to the westward advance of the libera ting army, and which General Gomtz crossed almost unimpeded in January last, was a virtual surrender to the Cuban government of the pntire eastern and central departments. The necessity which has now induced Valmaseda to retreat with his remaining forces still further westward, is an abandonment to the patriots of the whole Villas district. The sugar estates of the only remaining undevastated districts, which Valmaseda Js now attempting to protect, are chiefly owned by Spaniards residing in Matan zas and Havana, who have already sent commissioners to the president of Cuba, seeking to preserve slavery even in a modified form; and to-day they thoroughly understand that their estates can be saved only by surrendering their slaves and submitting to the revolution. Thus the war will be ended. There will be no siege of Havana, because the Spanish property holder of the districts now threatened will prefer Cuba under a president who respects their lands and houses, to Cuba under a king who can not save them from utter ruin. God speed the day. If ever a people deserved liberty, it is the Cubans, who have thus an but conquered. STATS LAWS. AN ACT to provide Tor redeeming land sold ror taxes. Section 1.

The contest which the New York Her ald has encouraged with a view to rob North Carolina of the honor of initiating the war for independence, lias taken wider range than was at first expected, aud raised up for "the Old North State" friends in unexpected quarters. The po sition taken by the Appeal, supported as it was by the most reliable of historic writers Dr. Ramsey has been fully, amply aud even triumphantly sustained General BradlfT. Johnson.of Virginia, tells the story of the "Regulators and the Declaration of Independence by the Mountain Men of North Carolina," and claims that the "romance of the revolu tion" was in that State, where whig and tory contended face to face with all the fierceness and bitterness usually incident to civil war. He cites history to prove; that in the early foun dation of the colony, as in the neighbor Ing one of Swth Carolina, attempts were made to fasten the aristocratic or class system, from the blighting curse of which to many of them had fled from Europe to escape. He says that After the rebellion of 1715 and 174"), many of the Highland adherents of the bouse of Stuart found refuge near Cape Fear. Neal MacNeal purchased lands near Ciras Creek, now Fayetteville, and settled five or nix hundred colonists there. Flora M'Donald, who saved the Chevalier Charles Edward, after Cullo deu, settled here, and between the Highlanders of the Cumberland and the Covenanters of Mecklenburg there was sure to be rati blood. The High land stock appears to have been the backbone of loyalty, as the other wax of rebellion, and tbiet feud waged hot aud bloody during the eusuiug years. The hardest lighting, the most destructive encounters, the bitterest, most fatal con teats' of the revolution were between the whigs and tories of North Carolina. It was a cruel and ruthless war, as civil war always i, and even now loyalty has no very line savor nor any very refreshing asHOoiationsin the Old North State. Hut a corresjiondeut of the New York Itmcs goes farther back iu favor of our "mother Carolina." He insists that she can claim to be tirst in other things be sides the declaration of independence. Among them the lauding of Erich the Norseman, over one thousand years ago, aud the establishment of the first English speaking colony on this conti nent, on the twenty-sixth of July, 15S5, acalouy that he reminds us was marked conspicuously in history because it was the "scene of the birth of Virginia Daie the first child of .British parentage born In America on the eighteenth of August, 15S7.
