Well Said. "
Our friend of the Raleigh Biblimt Re
corder well says : - - ?
"''Asheville is one of the most enter
prising towns in the State. It is the
great tobacco market of Western Caro
lina and has a large mercantile trade. As
a summer resort it has a national reputa
tion. It is the queen city of the moun
tains. The scenery is grand. The streets
and lots are models of cleanliness, and
they prove conclusively that the services
of tbe sanitary inspector, Dr. DlT. Mill
ard, have been most efficient. Would
that every North Carolina town had a
Lr. Millard as sanitary inspector."
And we can assure our friends that Dr.
Millard and our city authorities will not
relax their efforts to push the good work
of improvement and cleansing. Our
authorities are determined to spare no
efforts to make our beautiful city what
Sho ought to be, can be and must be, in
which they are heartiU sustained by our
citizens generally. -;-fVV. :v

- The suggestion that -was made by -tjvo
citizens relative to the propriety of the ap-
pomtment of the . above gentleman -to he
city tax. collector seems to meet with oppo
sition. y In justice to Capt. P, thesugges
tion was .made without his knowledge, his
first intimation of it being upon reading it
in the Citizen. We do not know that he
even desires the place, fi. - However,-: it- is
strange that an officer is held up to public
derision and official ostracism for doing
only what the law and his oath require him
to do. There is not a word of truth in the
statement that Capt. Patton has Oppressed
anybody. lie has been as lenient as the
law would permit; may be he has felt con
strained to compel from some what ninety-
odd per cent, -ot others voluntarily did
a payment of their dues as required, not by
himself, but by law..: His record as an of
ficial is creditable to him and to the good
character of Buncombe county. - ':,

earth the matter and secure his body,

which he deserves the praise ot all res
pectable and worthy citizens. . An inqu

dict that Crisp received the death blow
from the discharge of a gun in the hands
of an unknown party. All calm and
thoughtful persons of our county pro

the whole affair is shrouded in complete
and perfect mystery. The deceased left
a wile and several helpless children in
very straitened- circumstances. This
seiious tragedy, happening, as it did, has
created a feeling of peculiar and profound
regret throughout our county.. One more
sou! has been wafted with lightning
speed to the far; yes very far off distant
land, severed from all -earthly ties that
bind one to another, so close to pass the
trying ordeal of -another world. ... May
Heaven in its unbounded charity shower

of consolation and abiding hope that his
poor unfortunate wife may so" live that
when she is called to sleep the sleep that
knows no waking, her soul may be her
alded to the blessed abode where Heaven

piety and usefulness, that they may not

Our esteemed friend .Tom Ferguson of
Sandy Mush, has been a ,"seeker" for
some time, and has been the . subject of
the serious solicitude of his many friends
in his township. Of late he has been
going out to the mountains, and com
muncing with nature, and, it is hoped,
earnestly and honestly prayed for com
fort and consolation.- During these re
cent visits to the mountain, while alone
and undisturbed by the wicked things of
their life, he combined business with
other matters, and" repaired his fences
around his excellent pastures, and plac
ed therein his fine cattle and other stock.
Some days ago he again sought the
mountain fastnesses, and his flocks, still
anxiously enquiring after the right, and
asking for a revelation, when lo 1 it come:
when in sight of his pasture 'and his
flock, which he had but a few; days be
fore so securely fenced in,- his eyes . be
held numerous cattle, and sheep and
hogs tares evidently turned loose by
the wicked to swallow up the crops of
the hard-working husband-man, making
havoc with the work of his hands. He
raised his voice in one long-loud, happy
shout. The revelation he had sought
was now vouchsafed unto him, and he
exclaimed, in words more" expressive
than pious, "if this dont convert a man
then d m me' He referred to the No
Fence law, and since then : he has been
constant and happy in urging the im
portance of : that . new system. , Crops
when well fenced in are not safe against
the stock allowed to roam at large,-and
the only thing that will lave crops, and
much labor and expense is the No-Fence
law. Tom is solid now. .
The Raid into Moccasin. 1 -'.
On Sunday night last a party consisting
ofv officers ; Thomas - Hood -and Charles
Frost, with James Keener; and . William
Sneed as . posse,' left , Highlands, Macon
county, armed with U. S. Warrants for the
arrest of Cam Killings1 Will Reed, Phil
Crane and Leyi Crane, some of the parties
charged- with, connection" frith the" late
troubles at Highlands. They crossed into
Georgia into ,what is known as the'Moc
casin country.. When in. the gap - about
three miles from the Widow Crane's, they
came suddenly upon three men, standing
in the gap or trail, and called on them to
halt, it being then pitch dark. The chal
lenged parties stepped back a few paces
from the trail and opened fire upen Hood
and his party. The firing was briskly re
turned. The three men then made loud
signals for help, and in a few moments a
rescuing party was heard comings up.
Hood's party followed up the pursuit for
about a quarter of a mileT when they were
compelled to fall back, and ultimately to
return to Highlands, their force being too
small against the odds; presented. The
only damage doney so far as known "'was
a slight flesh wound across' the back of the
right hand of Sneed, made bya gun shot.".
