six miles west- of that place. It struck
the top of a mountain half a mile above
the home of aivxld.maav.GabriaLAI m,'
whose shop, in which he was working at
the time, was situated en a small branch.
A little grandson ran to tell the old man
that the water was coming down as -a
flood, and he left but re-entered to res
cue some tools. In a moment the shop
was overwhelmed, and washed down the
torrent The old man swam about twen
ty yards, when he was overwhelmed by
water and drifting logs and drowned.
The water came down the stream in a
perpendicular wall ten or twelve feet h igh,
and swept everything injitsway , carrying
on the bridges below, and all the fences.
The incident was local and limited. .

-Everybody, deplores the acciJcnt
which occurred to the Goldsboro Rifles
by. the .overturning tf the coach when
nearing Asheville. , Accidents .are prob
able apy and every whore, and none the
less deplorable on account oi locality or
unexpectedness of - cirtumstance. This
accident was specially; "deplorable, how
ever it-may have been brought ; about
whether by accident or carelessness. We
have endeavored to ascertain vs many of
the facts as we 'icould.'so. aa' to' blame
those wfco; should, either be' negligent or
guilty of gross . carelessness, pr , exculpate
those who may be unjxidtly accused. An
unjust accusalion "canaot '- remove the
shock or the injuie suffered by themem-i
bers of the GoldsbprdF coTnpanv or by the
public, and we are Sure tey are neither
disposed to .do--. injustice. V r are wanting

diately -upon' ' hearing of the "accident
Superintendent McBee and General Pas

greatly mortified at the matter do not
wish to shield any' guilty person, nor do
they desire the condemnation of !an in

with gentiemen;nrerhber f the Guaid,
who TFere on the-traini,Ahd) we are pleased
to say, these generally are actuated by a
like feeling with the railroad officers.
very many," find-seme very'vild'ru-
mors, have been in circulation since the
unfortunate event, One or two ol these,;
at the special request of Capt McBea.we
wiunonce, Dy eaymg ior mm, in reier
ence to the card of Capt Hallowell and
Sergeant Smith , that no "railroad official"
so far as he knows, certainly none author-1
ized to speak for the company. ' ever
charged the Goldsboro Rifles ' or any
memberof that company with tampering
with the danger signals-t. They, did say,
and do say, after investigation, that the
danger cord, . controlling the air-brakes
on the cars, was pulled, whereby the ac
cident occurred. In respect to the ru
mor that Engineer Low had been put on
for the special occasion, that he had been
discharged for reckless running, and for
drunkenness, these bfficials declare most
emphatically is entirely withppt founda
tion. Mr; Low," beginning in the
shops, . .has been , raised ,i,pn,- - the
road,; and is one of their, njost . trust
ed .; engineers., :. . As,. for! 'reckless
running," or . even . drinking much less
getting drunk. - the- officers declare thev
neither never heard of, nor do they be
lieve ne has ever been guilty of any each
conduct; and, -so far. as "this particular
occasion, is -concerned, we have , heard
members of the Winston . company ;de
tailed to be with and protect engineer
Low immediately after the: accident on
account of sorae threats which were
made, declare that Mr. low was absolu
tely free from the use of liquor, and that
he was very cool throughout, and anx
ious in his efforts to do all he could to
rel ieve th e suffering. This much for that
sideband" in justice to.engineer Low. , It
is admitted that the speed, coming down
graue ior some distance, : was about 3o
miles per hour, not an unusual speed in
this 'portion of the road. The track was
and has been in excellent order, and, is
now. Engineer Low reports that the
first apprehension ho felt just a few sec
onds before the accident,;. was upon the
discovery that he had lost control of his
train on account of the air-brakes having
been put on by some one pulling the
cord on some one Of the cars, exhausting
the drum at the engine, and throwing
the entire force of the brake on the fear
car, which, while the engine was in mo
tion under full headway, necessarily
caused the rear car to be jerked apart
from the track: . And the moment the
detachment took place, the pressure oc
curred on the brakes on all the other
coaches, which tended to throw them
from the track. He reversed his engine
as soon as he discovered .this .condition
of affairs, too late to prevent the detach,
ment and over turning of the rear car
Had the coach been thrown from the
track on account "of speed, its centrifugal
force would have thrown the- car-on the
outside the curve, whereas it jumped the
track and fell on v the inside, showing
clearly the enect of the sudden applica
tion of the -brake's; Very ! manyj of; the
soldiers insist that the speed" -Was reck
less, and created great anxiety among all
passengers. The pulling of tho danger
signal the cord which threw the whole

...-.' Mt. McGregor, July 23, 1S83.
A still, sultry morning on the moun
tain with clouds and thick heavy atmos
phere. Hundreds of visitors are coming
upon trains. The hotel is draped in
mourning, and a Sunday-like silence
reigns about the cottage where tho dead
General lies in his temporary receptacla,
wrapped in the flag. " So the third day
of Mrs. Grant's widowhocd begins.
Apropos of the nwilion of Mrs. Grant's
name, it may bo stated, that, thus far
that lady has been seen by no person ex
cept the members of her family and Mrs.
Dr. Newman since the General's death.
Late yesterday afternoon there spread',
from month to mouth the news' that the
widow had been seriously prostrated,
and that even serious results might be
feared from the shock of her berevement,
The rumor that first reached the outer
world may ber-regarded as having no
bases in fact, beyond that of Mrs. Grant
being in seculsion because of a natural
desire for rest nd quiet with her own
serrow President Cleveland was this
morning requested by the family to
name the pall bearers to act at the clos

Tiie Flao Drill -
The noYeltv of thn
the Banner Warehouse last., night had
the effect of very early filling the great
drill room, and when we dropped in toon
after 9 o'clock, every seat was occupied.
We owe to the courtesy of some of the
young gentlemen in charge a gooti scat
and a favorable position. We found the
centre of the floor occupied by the Wil
mington Band, eighteen or twenty pieces' '
which regaled the audience with really
very delightful music. We never heard
sweeter or better, and the entertainment
would have been complete if it had gone
no ianner. uut tnis was not what tho
watcnea tne great entrance aoors for the
sound that was the signal for tho en
trance of the Amazonian army. At
length the measured tap of the drum was
heard, and then . amid admiring and
almost wild Tanplauso the band of
Meseley. - It was a strikiaa ml-a irttr
sight. The costume was most thoroughly
"loyal." The uniform was a blue body,
a broad red band passing over the r it'll t
shoulder and falling down the left Bide
in long full sash. On the left breast were
tnree wnite'stars. The skirts, ample
enough, but less voluminous than the
fashions of the day exact were alternate
stripes of red, white and blue, on tho
front stripe of which blue, ran a perpen
dicular row of white stars. A jaunty red
cap, without visor, bound with white and
with fx whitA titsxr flat. Banlv vAf nram.
fully on each well balanced bead. In
lieu of musket, each one bore a staff sur
mounted with a national banner.' The
tout ensemble was wonderfully beautiful.-'
Tho company was then put through
the ordinary drill; and then Capt Mct
eley was a proud man, and the spectatoi s
a wonder stricken people. , Every move
ment was absolutely perfect and absolu
tely faultless, marching, counter march
ing, in column, in platoon, moving in
ri:iiHiiiii i 1 1 :i 1 1 ir i iur irnnr. wnnniinrv inrn
line, breaking into column, there was not
a single fault. The movement was that
of machinery, and space and distance was
calculated to the very inch.
The drill was kept up for half an hour
and then the company broke ranks, and
the spectators were ushered into anoth
er pleasant phase of the evening enter
tainment, and dozens , of tables were
placed on the floor, and speedily covered
with ice cream and other delicacies and
refreshments; and. no doubt the ladies
of the Aid Society reaped ample reward.
We learn from Capt. Moseley that this
perfection of drill was reached in ten
nights' practice. How many months
does it take the same number of young
men to do the same thing?
We extend a hearty welcome to this
new branch of the military service.
