Thursday, - - Janaary IS, 1373. AYILLIAM BIGG'S, Editor TARBORO'. NORTH CAROLINA. We give way in tins iffue ior publication of mncli general news to the excluviou of a large amount of editorial matter. We are sure our readers will enjoy the change. The Legislature. This bodv, professing to represent .... r . i the intellect, industry and intcllicence of the State, Teassomblerf yeterday. The members have nad nearly a months leisure. They hate had an opportunity of consulting their constitQ. ots and learn inj? tbeir wiahea and opinions upon certain public questions. They should go back to the Le.sis Jative Jails re invigorated and ful'y I w . . ...... v. V, -aVlif bUSl '" iiess without tfnneccssary delay. While the Legislature is nearly balmced in political notions, the Con servatives holding the winning card, each aal every member should forget his politics and work for the interest f his section, his County and the State at Jafge. Many who read such admonitions to the Lftislature will regard fbeni as platitudes of the tamest sort a h ick neyed theme one now rendered thieadbare by constant iteration but we have a gieat degree of confidence in the animus of the present Legisla ture. We trust that this confidence is not misplaced, and that they will enter upon their work wi;it energy and devotion, determi ncd to push forward the publiff business in an economical and successful manner. A Pretty Pictur. "We &re no especial admirer of ex Gov. Z. B. Vance and so the read re of the Socttierxer will remember Bui, hitherto, while expressing much approbation for many acts in his public career, and condemning others that we could not approve, we have always regarded Vance as sonsistent. "Who ever reads in the Charlotte nanprrt his tirade vmorl Senator Mer- l L A rimon may well enquire who is the most consistent or honorable in their course. Senator Merrimon, smarting, as he must have done, under the most infamous catalogue of calumnies has Bilently bcrne them all, but his oppo nent Got. Yance rushes into the public print more than once and vil ifies Senator Merrimon. With all due deference to Gov. Vance we venture to express the opinion that ho could A. -1. - have added to his reputation by fol lowing the example of Senator Mer rimon that is keeping quiet. "Sour grapes" have been always "notoriously hard to reach. The tfsiversity. No one can contemplate the pre sent condition of the University of North Carolina without cursing in his heart the authors of the ruin. No true son of the State can read the following account of the destruc tion and downfall of this once hon ored seat of learning, without enath tmizing he infamous Tiadical wretches who have caused it Gov. Holden and the Iiadieal party have many grievous; sins to answer for, but none so' black" and infamous as the destruction of this pride of the State. . Daring the past week the TVilni- j ington Journal has contained several j letters, giving a full account of the village pf Chapel Hill the rums of the buildings and the general decay , everywhere visible. We publish the following extracts: "The village and the University Buildings and grounds are all in such a complete state of ruin and decay that it keeps one constantly going from anger to sorrow; at) one time almost a tear, .at another time quite a curse; a tear for the nun that meets the eye at every furn, and a curse for those whose mad ambi tion and selfish vanity have brought it about. With the downfall of the Univer sity came the crash. The boarding house keepers were at once depriv ed of their accustomed means of support, as were the other classes of people. ho . dealt mainly with the students, and they and the Faculty ere long, one by one, departed. Governor Swain died, and his family have all gone away. Itev. Dr Phillips died, Charles Phillips -and his family have gone to Davidson College, Professor Martin is also there. Eev. Dr. Hubbard has charge of a school in Manlins, New York Professor Ivimberly has gone to Buncombe County, Judge Battle lives in Raleigh. Professor Fetter has a school in Scotland Neck, Hali fax county. Dr. Mitchells widow and daughters live in Oxford. The only religious services held there now, where formerly Divines ana .Doctors ot Ummtv were as thick as black berries almost, are those of the Methodist and Baptist clmrclies. iiev. JJLr. iarrer, the Baptist niinietsr, preaches once a month and is highly spoken of. He fame from South Carolina aDLd has been here only a short 'while. The Rgv. Mr. Martin of the Methodist Church, is rxw here for the second year. Everybody . l;kes hisr,v and everybody Epeaks well of him with- !&-- ' - 'Jttrmif. out regard to denomination, age, sex or former condition of servitude. A better idea of the desolation sex and abandonment of the "place" can not lo given than that contained in, the simple statement of the fact, that in the vacant lots and gardens in fiie village, sixtv-iwo bales of cotton have been produced this sea son! A prosperous village turned into a cotton field. So few travellers como to this place that for some time past there has been no pretence even to keep ing open any house far their enter-r tainment. This, however, is practi cally a matter of small importance as the few people who come here Come on business, and are" provided with food and lodging by the parties with whom they have business. I was very sorry to hear of the death of our old colored friend, Doc tor November, the sole remaining college servant of the old rttjhnr. He and his compeers. Dave Barham and Tom Jones, were three remarka ble men. For long, long years they remained here, performing their du ties with a fidelity and a devotion that would have done honor to any color, or to any station in life. Hon est. Knorable and upright i U dealings, ana ia tbrir mode of Irving, they were universally treated with kindness and respect, a feeling that in our' day Very' many of us had in herited from bur fathers. It is hon orable to the students and to these servants as well, that not a single instance, during a four year's stay, can be recalled, in which a harsh or unkind word was spoken to the one by the other. The Doctor was the only one who survived the downfall of the University. The contrast be tween his venerable and dignified bearing, and that of some of the late Faculty under the P- ol dynasty, was very striking, and greatly in favor of the faithful eld slave of former years. According to promise, I pr cced to give some account c.f a four of in spection in the College Buildings, grounds, &c. As we entered the gate next to the Hotel, we found the steps broken and sunken. The broad, beautiful walk leading up to the old East Building, that used t be kept with so much care, had grown up with grass and weeds, ex cept where a narrow, country-lock ing path winds its tortuous way along ft, and except, also, where it had -washed." The steps up the terrace to the efrp.nce of the north end of the East Building, where the Hall and Library of the ' Philan thr pic Society used to be, have rot ted and sunk down, in part. and. in part, have been cut away, as if with an axe. The old Hall was unlocked and its windows open. The old Li brary Boom was closed. The rooms, generally, in the building we're open; the windows were raised; the glass broken, and, in many ir.sfaricc, the sash broken or entirely gene. The doors were swinging, some wi'h their panels staved i t and others without. As a general rule the floors of the rooms end passages were covered with fallen plastering, and, it is pre sumed, will continue to be so. as 1 ng as the walls and ccililig are exposed to the moisture of successive winter rains. The northeast Comer of the roof of the east building was knock ed off by the falling of a free during a storm some time ago. It is difficult to imagine a building, in an inhabit ed, civilized country in a worse or more disgraceful condition. We next went to the new East Building, which, for once, was fas tened, so that no entrance could be had, except through a window. "We w re informed that the new Philan thropic Hall and Library were un locked. We had ocular demonstra tion thai four windows, on the f onth side of the Philanthropic Library, opening int as many alcoves, were wide open. The only reason doubt less, wiry the fifth window was not open, was that a stove-pipe, running through it, made it immovable. On the north side all five of the windows were more or less open. There can be no question hat fhe books, thus exposed to the weather, must be very materially injured. Beit remember ed, too, that this examination . was made just at the close of a long spell of rainy weather. "When the fact is recalled thai this Library, at one time, held some seven th- usand vol umes, and w uld hold them now, but for stealage ami vandalism, and con duct equally reprehensible, one may be excused for a few bitter thoughts. In this building, too, the glass was much broken. We next went , to Smith, Hall or "flie Ball Boom," to use the name by which it was beft k&own. This buil-. ding contains the "College Library" proper, so called, to distinguish it from the libraries of the two literary societies. It was closed. "We un derstand, however, that this library was well cared for by Professor Brewer when here. On the north side- of this Hall we- counted eighteen panes f glass, 12x24 inches in size apparently, broken, and four teen panes on the south side. This glass Was broken by stones thrown against the windows, as plainly ap peared from th shape tf the holes therein Upon the ot unci, near a window on the south side, with a glass entirely golie, through wliich easy passage m and out c uld be had, laid the remains of a glas3 jar and several little snakes or reptiles ei some sort, some fish, and other, cu rious things, that had evidently been preserved in alcoh 1 for some pur p se or ther. This damage, did not s e n to have-been 1- ng dune. , . South Building was next examined. Dr. Mitchell's old room was found locked. The do rs and 'wind w, however, were generally open, with glass broken, and in many cases with sash and panels broken og altogether missing.- Here, too, also, the floors of the passpgea and rooms were cov ered with fallen plastering, Upon the walls was to.be found writiug of the ni''st vulgar and obscene charac ter. In a comer of room No. 1, Penth. Building, thorp was-a pile of hair, doubtless put there --to ; conceal lha theft f the animal from which it was taken. , SiekiMm ajil disgusted I left Soivfii BirMi". itii'1 went to GiratiTHnrl, or "tlit cupci. Here, also, v.e tound the loc.ro open and the windows w ith thirty-one panes Ip! vP nortU au1 rty-to on flw soutb mda.;' "n. too, the pkwter- iug bad begfln tp Hit, nd ilw poruco cou vtmji were Jtwrui8edaadb.itt area, tud abused gaaerally 'S . ' ;- , "The old-West BmlJhrg war next examin ed, and revealed the same disgraceful con dition. It would lie only to till the same old story, weie I to speak of .jcn doors with broken panels; of windows with broken class bevond count alfaost, and broken and missing sash, and floors covered with fallen plastering. We tamed not long. here. The kighi had become digublingly monotonous. The new west building was next approach ed. It' proved, however, to be shnt up. Here, too, was broken glass. ThU is the building our much loved Yankee riemls pTckrted their horses in when they occupi ed this place. The windows in the Dialectic Library which is iu this building, were, I am glad" to say, closed. Net and last, Terson Hall, or the "old Chapel" was examined. Three of tht; four recitation rooms it contains were open. 1 he steps are roUh g down, and are iu a very rickety condition. Here, too, is the same old story about open doors, broken glass, The grievances to which the people of this unfortunate village have been subject ed, politics',, pecuntaij- nnJ persoual, are without a parallel in the State or out of it. They have stood silently by and seen the tread taken Irom the mouths of themselves aud their little ones; they have seen their ouco busy street grow up with weeds and grass; they have seeu their dwellings and places of business go to ruin for tho want of a tew dol'urs to make the necessary repair in due time; year. ly yea'arul week by week and day by day, the.y Lave seen tluir hope of a better time ce.ming grow fainter and fainter, an'il now, at last, they are well nigh crushed with that heart sickness that comes of hope deftirtd. And all the e evils have come upon this eop!-! from the detcrmins ion Solomon Pool t" live and die Presi dent of the University of North Carolina. Rec'Liring the fact, we presume, that the University could not be sustained under the Tool Dynasty, all of the Professors, save llr B' awer, we believe, have resigned. There is not now, and for twelve months or mora there has nnt been a single student at tbeUiiiverMty, if we are correctly informed. There is uo pretence, even, of affording lure the &eiiitie "for the convenient instruction of youth or for "duly encouraging and promoting all useful learning' as required by the article ofthe old Constitution, under which ihe University was established. ' -is Mr. Krewv'r is already provided for by a foreign appointment, President Solomon Pool is the only remaining obstacle to its reco struetion aud reorgtnzr.tion. It has been demonstrated, beyond the possibility of a d.-.nbt. that not even the Radical Trus tees Of the Univrrsy will wml their sons here, so long as S ?!omoa Pool ii Pr sident. We appeal to the Radical party, then, t un'.e ;ih us in setting aside a ma a whom inithei" i'lev nor ourselves are willing to trust. Can it ! possible that the great in- it-rest North Carolina has at stake in this matter is to be sa' iifict d to gratify the am bition of Solomon Poo!? We trust not.

Elaswhere in the Southeeneb will be found an account of "the death of ex-Enlperbr Napoleon, which event took place at -Qiiselhurst last week. - No evefit of recent occurrence is tlestined to exercise so marked an effect on Continental politics as this. It is, indeed, of European signifi cance, for the existence of the new French Republic, but crudely organ ized, under a government confessed ly provisional, maybe said to depend upon the life of one man Mr Thiers T himself now in the seventy-fifth year of his age.
