Mathbws., r, : From a letter which we published yes terday froni Mr. K." D.

It was so substantial in its details we presumed some stranger had gone among the people of Jackson and had swindled them, and had fled, and so. mentioned the fact. . It is very far from our pur pose at any tune, to do injustice .to any living man; we have .no patience with such in others, and never indulge in such ourselves; and believing we have been misled ' into doing very great in justice to Mr. Mathews, we desire to inakeibe fullest.,, amends... How the News and Courier or- it -correspondent could have gotten such rumors upon which to base such an article we are at a loss to conceiva. We regret our participation in giving it currency, and shall only be the more careful of our sources of information hereafter. Stabnes Stbeet. The beautiful Merrimon property re cently purchased by "he Starrres broth ers, is being made accessible, and made ready frr proposed subdivisions. A street 40 feet in width, has been opened from Water street across to Flint street, which street is the Northern extension of Hay wood street. - Owing to the nature of the ground, the new street has to follow very conspicu- ly, Hogarth's line of beauty, but what is lost in straightness, is gained in pictur esqueness. Several fine lots are opened with frontase on four different streets. This purchase adds .a large and very eli gible area for improvement, 'and is desr tined to become one of the most cnarm- ing,sections of A.slieville. i a m .,3 tfi Winston' Toasted.'''

Wiley Shook, and the proof was deemed sufficient to justify their committal, : Xhe- counteneits ara imitations of dollars and half dollars, very rude presentments of the red coin. They are not calculated to deceive; yet a number of half dollars had been put off on the ignorant or unwary. Besides the evidence of the parties imposed upon, there were found on the persons of the prisoners specimens of the counterfeit money. The dies were not found. . v Religious Notice. . Dr. J. L. M.

V iA& the .Adiance has urged . the utter failuro of the present water works, we fear "the proceeds" of a sale would not amount to much if enough to pay the debt on this account it might be consid ered a good bargain, for the city. Good financiers are not in the habit of paving much for Worthless property. As far as it goes, the Citizen regards the property as worth for more to the city than it has ever cost, but recognizing the fact that enlargement is necessary, both in supply of water and in extensive of service, and assuming that the sity is not willing to undertake this, we conclude it is better to sell to a responsible company upon terms which will secure the additional service, though the city realizes no more that its outlay therefor. The city must be supplied with good , water, and the shortest road to obtaining the supply should be taken. A Painful Accident. ; . Yesterday afternoon, Willie, son of Mr. II, Redwood, met with one of those accidents bef are, so fond of courting, and which-' they tearrt always after to remember; He hadjsarried home from his jfathei-'s store, an . empty . powder keg, '- to convert into 'a 'flower' pot. Knocking out the head, a small quantity of powder, apparently less than a tea spoonful, was found in the keg. Boy-like, hereon cjuded, tQhav,e6ome.4 fauleuti of that, without calculation of danger. Lighting a match he thrust it into the keg. It failed to ignite the powder, and he lit another, and instantaneously there was an explosion, the flame shooting up as out, 61 a mortar, burning his arms, breast and face; the latter very severely. It is very much swollen and up to the present time the eyes remain closed, so that it is not yet possible to determine whether the sight is injured or not. We hope not, and think not, for we have seen much worse cases in which the eye escapes by - the instinctive instantane ous closing of the lids, against threatened danger. " v "' . : ' - Willie bears his sufferings with great heroism. His greatest solace is that he will get his name in the newspapers. We-predict that when he comes to years, bf 'maturity he will be a great advertiser, for he already shows his appreciation of the power of the pi ess. Fine Chops. . Mr. West's statement about the mag nificent corn and other crops in Cherokee haB called' attention 'to some excellent crops in Buncombe. CapL Ben Young reports that a day or two since be visited the farm of Col. LoBg on Swannanoa. He says Col. Long had fifteen acres in .watermelons; has sold over five hundred wagon loads, and, the quantity taken' can scarcely be missed; that on walking through the. field it would be easy.' now to step upon melons at every step. He also says the thirty acres in tobacco is the finest he ever saw, and cannot believe it can be beaten; and as to corn, he says he sat on a horse sixteen hands high and could "not reach 1 the ears. Ben says he never saw such crops. ' ' Rev.

TEX4S ' CONVENTION OF KNIGHTS OF IABOR. i Proceedings Seeret Alliance 'with Problbitionlata ftnr " mlsei. " ''.'i ' T - : ' Galveston, Sept. 2, j A special to the News from Dallas says the first convention of the Knights of Labor of Texas met here yesterday for the purpose of organizing a State asseni. bly. -One hundred and four delegates inclildihg eight Colored jpien, , were in' attendance.';' The .'proceedings v-wcr secret." All delegates are extremely non cqmmumcatiYOk.emg bound bvanjpath not to divulge anything. Much specula tion is induged in by outsiders respecting the prolmble coalition of the coalition of tho Knights of Labor with ' the Prohibi tionists. .Owing to the fact that the Knights of Labor, throughout the State generallly are refraining from the use of strong drink; it is surmised that ihey ate preparing to make overtures to the Pro hibition party,' and especially as a numj ber of brief interviews 6hoW that a large majority of the delegates sympathize with the prohibition movement which is assuming vast proportions in this State. Another report, current, states that seeds are being planted for a Farmers TJniOn with the hope of making a common. cruisado against what is described as "the excess of capital." . The agreement entered into between the executiva committee of the assembly of seventy Knights of Labor and officers of the Texas St. Louis Railway last Saturday will, it is thought, bo proposed by. the State assembly as the means of hereafter settling strikers in Texas. It prescribes, first, that those who have quit work by Btrike shall be reinstated, and shall not be discharged for any action taken by the strikers and in regard to wages due ; but this is not to cover intemperate, or men off duty. That thirty days notice shall be given to men for being discharged, except for cause; and of increase or re duction in- wages similar notice shall be given. Old employees are to have pref erence of work, jind all differences be tween companies' and their employes shall be settled by arbitration. The convention will lie convened to-day, when organization will be effected. SAI TRAOEDY ; OJr TnE POTOMAC. Two Well Known Persons jLose Their Uvea. .Washington, D. C, Sept. 2. The particulars of the sad tragedy on the Potomac last evening near the Chain Bridgp, by which John H. Morgan, the only 6on of Senator Morgan, of Alabama, and Mrs. Emma Delia Stella lost their lives are as follows: -Mr. Morgan who is a member of the Washington Canoe Club left the Club House about 6 o'clock, I and going in tho Iola. a double canoe, with Mrs. Stella, while Mrs.Stella'i njiee. Miss Lula McCarthy, aecomwnnitd them in a single canoe, as she - desiri-d to prac tice paddling.' About 7:15 o'cl ck about a quarter of a milts' i below the" Chain Bridge the double : ennoe was capsiznl and both occupants, Mr. Morgan and Mrs.' Stella, were drowned. Morgan wentdown while attempting to save his companion, lie was a good swimmer, but very slight physically. .Miss. Mc Carthy, who had turned her canoe down streaiand was some distance in advance; happened to turn her head over . her shoulder and saw the collapse. She saw the two occupants in the water and heard Morgan cry "Lula ! Lula !" before he sank. She at once turned - about but when she had paddled 1 to the spot both Morgan and Mrs. Stella had disappeared under the waters. The canoe it appears, had struck a sunken rock. The current at this point is very swift, making a series of rapids; and there are many dangerous rocks in the water. After paddling about the fatal spot for half an hour and more Vainly hoping that the forms of her companions would rise to. the surface, Mjss McCarthy, in despair, started down tho river after help. She had proceeded but a little way when she met two gentlemen aud went back with them to make another fruitless search.. MiBS McCarthy, Dd her two new companions then turned again Sown stream towards Holtzmanus, Miss McCarthy" being -now, exhausted was taken into the other boat, at Holtz mantis', M ibs McCarthy was cared for by Mrs. Holtzmanus and subsequently was taken to her home In a buggy by Mr. Holtzmanus. Mrs. Stella was a widow about 40 years of age, a clerk in the general land office, and resided with her sister Mrs. McCarthy and her neice Miss McCarthy at 2116 G.
