If Col,.Rumbough will n&t soon begin to rebuilt the hotel at the Warm Springs the Citizen will. It must be done. Sweet potatoes and watermelons have become : pro?oftble crops in Buncombe. It is only a few years since attention was paid to tnem. 4. Cannot Chestnut street be opened to the intersection with Academy street? It would make the handsomest drive in and around the city. , MessrsCHenry -; Redwood ' and -S.'O. Howell are fishint: this week in the lim pid waters of Laurel, in Madison. They went prepared for a good time. Rev. T. M. Myers will hold diyine ser vices at JViarsnall to-morrow morning at 11 o'clock, and at Refuge church at 8 o'clock.- p. m. same day. Mrs. Benj. Newland keeps an excel lent boarding house at the Warm Springs. A number of visitors have been stopping with her. and with Mr. Stone, availing themselves of the hot baths this season. Quite a large .party from the Swan nanoa hotel went out to tne weaver Sulphur Springs to-day. It is a spot once famous and we hope to see it come into proper notice again. Roan Mountain, Blowing Rock, Mor- canton. Marion, Round Knob. Black Mountain, Henderson ville, A rdeu, Turn pike, "Waynesville, Black well's, Alexan ders, Weaverville, : Warm Springs, and hunreds of country places, have, been and are filled with Summer visitorc, and the crowd at each increases, Asheville is reasonably full. . . If we are made to swear at all, it will be "by Jupiter,"'and Hull and McCarty will be responsible lor it. They have put out their brand "Jupiter," so fine that while that is in the ascendant we will have nothina.else.. The be6t feature of this hew brand is that the whole stock of tobacco was obtained on the Asheville market, a most encouraging fact for manufacturers. The, Fruit Fair at Greensboro during this week has not attracted much atten tion from Western fruit growers, largely from the fact that our finest fruit is not in its perfection so soon in the yean But this reason will not apply to the coming Fair here; and we hope -and believe at that time the Western coun ties will do their .whole duty. . It is a matter of business, not of show. Hundreds of people will be here to test the validity of the boasts of the mountain counties. If Buncombe county would have to pay Mr. and M.iss Crichton for the dam ages sustained by the accident caused on the Swannanoa a few , days ago, because the road was not wide enough for vehi cles to pass each other, perhaps perhapt our roads would be . made jas wide as the law requires.

' The Cantata Imst, Night. ; One of the largest and roost .elegant audiences we have ever seen here filled the Opera Hall last night td witness the performance Qf -the Cantata," the "New Year's Eve.". T probably it was nothing new to very many; certainly it is so old that we propose to give no details of the story, i But we can say that in all its features it was perfect and bautifSdl to the eye and to the ear. Recall ine the vivid picture, we feel as. if for the time we had for the time lived in a po etic illusion fKm which the present waa effaced.and in which thepastcame , up in vivid reality with, all the charm that fancy has . thrown.Jtround rustic sports and, rural .pleasure-fir upon whehpthl1 English writers otfie pas so raiict lea lighted to dwell 'and which have fascM' nated the American readers, into . sub jection to the same delicious spelL-vWe , will not dispel the illusion by note of name or indiyidual .act.

'.' ' . - The curtain raises on the "Old Year"-! seated on his throne, his now. departing, sceptre' trembling in his feeble hands, bis bending form yielding to the weight of time; and hid countenance sad, sol emn and impressive, tells the story of his departing -power.: Father- . Time, grave, stately and inexorable, stalks in in his relentless march with, scythe up lifted as token of his aim and poweh and the Old Year is reminded that his course is nearly run.: The clear: .full, sweetn tones fn which the warning was convey ed fell upon the hearers with, ravishing effect, and the rich, dee'p notes in which the old year, pleading for delay, might almost wish his time had Dean prolonged, so sweet the interchanging strains and- so ricn ine narmony . oi voices. xui when at the wiBh of the Old Year, the Seasons came trooping in, Spring with Zephyr, Dewdrops and Months. Sum mer with Sunshine, ; Rainbow ' and Months, Autumn with Cloud, Jack Frost and Months, and winter wita snow, Sleet and Months, the feeling -changed. and the concentrated year stood present in All its glowing SDlendors and all its striking contrasts, r Time, past, presentj and to come were forgottea.i inithe magic of the scene. It was a gorgeous picture, those beautiiul young girls, and ng eiris, anu; the fairy-like children, -in brilliancy off " ... .'. . " I costume as vivid as the rainbow, and picturesque appropriateness of adapta tion of style that give endless form and variety; but everywhere, 'the inevitable foil of Time and the dying; Y?ar with solemn rtfien and sober garb to mark the limit put to beauty and to pleasure. The chief feature of the Cantata is song and recitation. This was all ex quisitely beautiful and harmonious. t The series 6t Tableaux were presented with faultless beauty and accuracy .fThe first, the May Pole, displayed att English village scene, dear to the readers of old English books of a former country life". Here was a scene in which the bold and jovial Robin Hood might have joined; upon which the grave and courtly .Sir Roger de Coverly, might have looked with relaxed severity, and in which the lads and lasses of past generations werei free and joyous participants. When the pose of the Tableau was broken tBe figures fell to dancing with most delight ful abandon, and with the antiquated costume, theantique figures of the dance. and the lively movement presented a picture once common enough-upon the English village green. : This scene1 was admirably conceived and admirably ex ecuted. - The next, a Summer Tableau, theEic- nic, was not so lortunate. it was an anachronism, and the presence of cham paign Dottles on tne sward made the scene as modern as could be done. .-: The Summer Tableau, a Harvest Scene. was in fine character, the young men and maidens, jn, : rustic ; though fright and picturesque garb, in all the. exhilaration; of the joyous haying season. " - - Jil- J ' lnen tne end approached; and solemn winter claimed the vrighty Npt; in picture of cold and storm and gloom, but illuminated with the light that cheers the Christian heart and gives its bright ness to the Christmas season the glo-" rious Star of Bethlehem bfiautifol beam Of light extended by -angel hand, stretch ed toward the low'y manger. "This Was an exquisite execution, of a most ex quisite idea and the heart stood still while the eye rested with wrapt devotion and admiration upon the beautiful picture. :'' "' " And then the old year with tottering steps . came . down " from ibis ' hoary throne, and tne young year with lusty stride took up his place, and Seized .the sceptre, and the old year was sung but, and the new year was sung m, and San ta.Claus caaae upon., the scene,nd the little girls joined in chorus; and all join ed in chorus, and then the curtain fell, and then we wondered whether it was a beautiful dream or sober reality, and if the latter, how it was that human wit and human grace and beauty could cre ate such, illusion. . : i ' - - - : We may add-because here we do not trench upon the grounds of illusion, that the music of the evening was one of the chiefest charms. . Atoa'teurs so skilled as Mr. Jacobs, on the piano, and Mr, Chan dler of the .violin, command the heart and ear, whenever they consent' td please. Their execution -was artistic, tasteful and pleasing, and their accompaniments were in admirable time and tone. j If not asking too much, we might hone for a renewal soon pf the pleasures of last night's entertainment. : f V He Stkttng His Fish.
