Sonny Fon It. Wo approach tb.3 subject
with f -ar and trembling. We really feel
ioc. impotent to express the sorrow that is
tuvjiiiK at onr heart strings, for the reason
that w forget to mention the Soda Foun
tain of Dr. L. L. Statoa iu tho last issue of
til SOUTIICIIXER.
We trust the following amende honorable
fgad emphatic statement will make up the
e i T.
Dr. Staton's Soda Fountain is tho most
eomplefe and elegant ouq in this section of
the country; his syrups aro unsurpassed and
management uneipialed.
If y u desire a refreshing drink call at
this Fountain during a sultry day.

Corrkctiox. In noticing the prospects
of the Radical County nominations last
week we expressed the pinion that New
ton and Jackson, both colored, would bo
retained as Commissioners.
Wc feel rather "jnbious" of the correct
it ess ofour information, and we have since
beet: continued in tke doubt.
A prominent leader of the mongrel con
cern, (but justice compels us to assert a
calculate also,) assures us that it has
!-' determined t throw over-board both
these darkies for why or wherefore It
was impossible for us to a-ccrtain. '
Another correction we feel constrained
t.- make upon the slate published by us in
A iislio.

Ocn Orkatest Sowhkr. We chance to
know that Gen. Lee and Gen. A. P. Hill con
sidered (Jen. Pender the ablest sol. Her that
North Carolina gave t the war. Gen. Lee
said that he never had his j.ioper rank that
he ought to have been one of his corps com
manders. Gen. Hill said to the late Mr.
AVallace. the Nestor of the Petersburg Bar,
as Mr. Wallace told Dr. rHumard and the
writer, that tie was the ablest soldier of his
rank, Major General, that lie had ever
known. We introduce this for the purpose
of asking onr Tarboro'. brethren, . Messrs.
flings and Stamps, if tho monument that was
to bo erected to the memory of the. noble,
brave - Pender has ever been completed, and
if not, what ha'.i become of the project set op
foot a lew years ago to raise a fund to plaoo
a shaft above the remains of tho most illrs
trious citiKrn that Edgecombe ever gave
birth to, ami to purchase a home for his
widow 1 .
Our great admiration for Gen. Pender is
our excuse for thus obtruding an inquiry as
to a matter ' that more properly concerns
Edgecombe, Although he was there "na
tive and to the manor born," Ms fame be
longs to the wlmln State. Wo are very
prond of it. and will b ?'r.d to learn from
our respected contemporaries that a beauti
ful monument of native Granite or Parian
marble now rises above the rem n ins of our
most consummate Captain. Senttii?:
We are sorry to inform our friend of the
Sentinel that as yet we have been unable to e
rect the proiosed monument over the remains
of onr great hero, but . that, "war's s;rim em
blems' alluded to in Mr. Margrave's poem,
a pi'e of cannon balls upon his crave, are
the only marli of the (lend warrior's couch.
We hope .however, that at some future time,
when the ravages of war have been swept
away, and peace and prosperity return, that
a grateful people Will yet .honor the tomb of
a great and noble man, who gave his life for
their defence.
We suggest that the soldiers of his old .bri
gade each contribute one dollar to the noble
cause, tmd that the Memorial Association be
entrusted . wfyh .the work of erecting Gen.
Pender's monument.
Wc would say to the Sentinel, however,
that a beautiful Memorial window, in the
Episcofs.1 church ju Tarboro, shows that the
dead hero is thought vi.Enq'iirer.
In addition to the explanation of our
esteemed cotcmporary of the Enquirer, as'
given above, we would state ihxt the success
of every s'K-'b. project depends very materi
ally upi n tho local and moral standing of
the projector, or its main advocates.
Tii3 Dsuocr.ATic Convkntiov. The
Cocaty Executive Committee of the Dem
ocratic party have called a Convention to
bo held at Tarboro on Saturday, Juno tho
15th.
It is proposed to nominate a fall Dem

ly desired that every Township should bo
represented either in person or bv proxy.
We, therefore, ure npon tlio sevc-al
Townships tho importance of calling pri
mary meetings at an early day and appos
ing Delegates to the said Convention.
The Executive Committee are now cor
responding with prominent Democratic
speakers from other sections of the State,
and they feel confident of beinj ablo to

Executive Committee, behl on Tuesday last,
tho following Delegates were appointed to
the Democratic Convention of the Second
Congressional District, which assembles in
Goidsboro on June oth:
Dr J II Baker, Fred Whitney, Orren Wil

Jno L Bridgers Jr, D II Barlow, Chas W

The Committee at the same time directed
that all other good Democrats from the
connty wko might, visit Goidsboro on that
occasion be considered duly accredited del
egates. Pkess Association. At a meeting of the
editors at Greensboro, we suggested the or
ganization of a Press Association for this
State. It met with approval, and a com
mittee, enmposed of Capt. Nat Atkinson of
the Ashville "Citizen," Capt. Wm. Biggs,
of the Tarboro Southesnek, and Capt. S.
T. Williams of the Raleigh "News," were
appointed to draft .rnles suitable for the
government of such association. Owing
to tho hours appointed for the sitting of
the State Convention, no other meeting of
the members of the press could be held.
We now suggest that these gentlemen pre
pare said rules, in accordance w'th their
appointment, and thGy call a meeting of the
editors to take place in Raleigh sometime
during this 'summer. This matter can be
made of -v.st importance to tlie press of onr
State, and should be gone into. What do
our brethren say to this suggestion? Louis
burg Courier
We, as one member of the Comniitteo ap
pointed at Greensboro by the Press Meeting,
heartily respond to the suggestion of onr
friend Furman.
Leaving out even the peculiar moneyed
business of tho Press which a State Conven
tion could adjust upon a satisfactory basis.
There are other considerations, political in
character, pending a State and National
Campaign, that requires careful considera
tion and united action on tho part of those
who are presumed to lead public sentiment.
Wc; therefore, trust that Capt. Atkinson,
Chairman of the Committee, will draft such
suitable resolutions and call a meeting of
the press of the State at as early a day as
practicable at some central point.
Whatever action he may decide upon wo
will stand by.
Rr Appearance of Paper. For some
unfortunate reason, and one that our experi
enced Foreman could not then discover, the
last few issues of the South t.rn kii have pre
sented a most blotched and blurred ap
per.nnoc. Thoro was evidently some railed defect,
for Radicalism is Fine to embrace something
i - . .tii- k
wrong, bilse, corrupt and uceepi,ie. a
careful examination a few days since dis
closed the aforesaid defect, which was found
to be in the rutU'r, condit ion of tho roller

party.
We have had fuo said roller thoroughly

From our Traveling Correspondent.
Washington', D. C. April 30th, 1372.
"The Metropolitan" is situated in a beau
tiful portion of. the city, on -"Pennsylvania
Avenue'' tnd being rather central, is a,good
ba.-je for operations, contrality in Washing
ton being an object, as every visitor there
knows, and tho foot-sore pedestrian, nfter
three days peregrinations, is prepared to
appreciate the fact that Washington is "the
City of magnificent .distances;" it being only
one nule exactly from the gate of the Cap
itol to the gate of the White House the
termini of Pennsylvania Avenue the other
prominent public buildings boing olistant
from each other in proportion.
There is much in Washington to interest
a stranger, and the Capitol buildings alone
would entertain one for several days; indeed
the Rotunda and passages ure constantly
crowded with sight-seers from abroad and a
corps of polite .policemen are stationed at
regular intervals to answer questions, give
information and keep relic hunters from
despoiling tho building and defacing the
ornaments by their petty pilfer ings.
. Entering tho Capitol from the Avenue,
we ascended a long flight of storufe steps and
came to an immense basin surrounded by
an iroii jrajling and filled with fresh water
from a spring two or three ntles off, in
which countless numbers of golfl and other
fish play, and feed on the cruibbs thrown
them by little children.,
Going in on the first floor qf the left
wing under tho Senate- Chan.bod we came
to the heating and ventilating apparatuses,
which have great attractions for mechanical
minds; the heat is furnished by raaans of
steam generated in huge boiler, ,tho
machinery for it being complicates! rpd
ornamental; innumerable steel bands fur
nished as bright as mirrors, and countnsss
brass knobs so highly pob'shtd that yonJ
ran see the reflection ot your luce m them;
the floors being covered with handsome
Brussels carpets. VentilAtion is obtained
by means of immense fans, revolving rapid
ly, producing a powerful current of r.ir
which is forced through the entire length
and hcigth of tho building by means of
pipes.
Going pp another flight of' rtonc steps
(for everything is made of stone and iron)
we enter the Linunda of 'he main new build
ings, and advancing to the centre with
head thrown back and upturned eyes, we
are Myibly impressed with the idea of our
uuuuuaal msignihcauco ana can out won-,
dcr at hud admire the mighty mind of the
man who could conceive ?neh a structure
in building an ornament fori uations pride,
be er.t'ted a monument to his individual
fame.
This, beyond a doubt, is tho principal
attraction of the buildings; everything is on
tho grand, magnificent ficalo. and every
thing in tasteful proportion. .'
The Rotunda of the Dome being th: prin
cipal feature in the house; the prini ipa. fea
ture of tiie Rotunda is the bronze doors''
(or rather d mbie door) to the entrance from
.'Hist Front" Street. This door, or doors,
are solid bronze, consisting "f eight pan
reds, lour on each side, representing tho
c ire. . of Christopher Columbus from the
time la Was eoiioiii.ionod by the ee'iirt
of Spa'i: to Lis -ath in a di;'i.;eon.
The figures stand out in bold relief, an.t
the features of tl different faces are rery
expressive. The doors were designed by
lingers, of Rome, and cast by Miller, in
"Munich; iu 18C0. e They are seventeen (17)
feet high, nine (9) feet wide and weigh
twenty (20,000) thousand pounds, costing
forty thousand ($40,000) dollars; these
doors have Eot been exempt frem the petit
larcenies 61" pncrilegous relic seekers; some
one having stolen the ridle and Btir
rup off the ass on which Columbus is mcun
ted, on his way to the Court of Ferdinand
and Isabella; a'polieeman is however Bow
stationed here, who's especial duty it is
to guaid .those doors.- . . .

this purpose, and when desired, as though
some Divine power had said: "iet there be
light;-" forth fiash tho flames, as quick as
lightning, from the grand floor to cupola.
As yon epter from the . Avenue; pass
through the right hand door of the rotunda
aud you coino to a room with several stat
nes in it, among others, is the. ono of Pres
ident Lincoln, by Vinnio Reams, which,
judging from tho picturo of him, is a good
likeness. Passing on through this rooTi,
we come to the 'House of-c.f,r-ogcni;arivos"
aiul looki' down upon the vast amphithea
ter of hirman heads, our eyes involuntarily
rest u; on Ben Butler; recognized immedi
ate Jy by the resemblance the caricatures of
him bear to the original. Like 'RedGauutlet, '
he has the mark .of iho. Beast unmistakably
stamped on his forehead.
In tho back ground, sit two or three
11th Amendments, with their heads hung;
down, totally unconscious of what is taking'
place around them and utterly ignored by
their wiuta colkc.guesii -- ...
Passing from "the House" beck through
the rotunda, wi come to the "Seuate Cham
ber," and are forcibly impressed with the
superiority of this over the other branch
ot Congress.
What Butler is in the fTonsa, Charles
Simmer is iu tho Senate; Sumner is scrupu
lously noat in his dress as he is unscrti
pn.ous in his politics; but withal he is a
good iookii?" man. Edmunds, of Vermont,
is now on the floor and is endeavoring to
account for tho misappropriation of thcNaval
appropriations, defending the Administra
tion," while Trumbull, from Illinois, mppar
ently indifferent to what is takif-g place, is
paying the strictest attention to what Ed
munds is. saying, and now rising from his
his seat, rakes Edmunds fore and aft, expos
ing the fallacy of his argument and placing
him in an unenviable position Edmunds is
a smart wan and good debater; but Trum
bull is liissriporint in every respect.
Our next letter -will be a continuation of
"what wo know about Washington." .

rhubarb, or ealeu-el and jalap, must bo
administered.. These "spring medicines,"
me youngsters were to .J, were to keep
them hale and heauy dn.ang the summer.
We all know now that this was a falacy;
that new vigor, not depletion, is what "is
enervatinar effects of
weather, a course of Hostetter's Stomnch
Bitters is higlily exi e lient. This lamous
vegetable preparation has three prominent
properties: It renovates, purifies, and
regulates all the functions of the body. Iw !
is composed exclusively of nm-o vei'ftjiMn
productions, viz. tiie essential principal of I
Aionongaueia uye,am tho most eliicacious
tonic and alterative roots, barks, and gums
known to medical botanists. Hence, it is
an absolutely safe medicine, and no tine- i
ture of the Pharmacopoeia can compare
with it either in purity, or in the variety of
it objects, and its comprehensive results..
Happily for mankind, the theory that it
was necessarv to prostrate a nntipnt n
order to cure him, ;is forever exploded,
ana tne true .philosophical doctrine, that
vigor is on grfjat antagonist of da-ease,
has taken its dace. Hostetter'a Ritters
is an invigoraut, and hence it is the proper
medicine for the feeble at this most trying
season of the year.
Be sure that you obtain tho genuine
article, as there are innumerable vile imita
tions in ine mamec. jjook to the orna
mental stamp, the engraved label, and the
name blown into the glass. Hosteiter's
Stomach Bitters is sold in bottles only.
