Now our patriotic enthusiasm, whether at th'1 memorial services at Augusta, f (jiu General Evans, or at the Char lotte Centennial from Judge Kf.ku. Governor Vaxce, ilr. IJiutTjir and oth er distinguished Southerners, or at Houston, from the lips of Mr. Davis, is proclaimed to be the muttering5? of a coming storm. The latter gentle men is even twitted with aspirations for the Presidency, arid prejudice is being attempted to be excited against leading Northern Democrats who have been prominently mentioned iu con nection with that exalted position. We are glad to know however that despite these efforts, a better feeling prevails throughout the country. Thi.; is manifested ia many ways, aud in none is it more marked than in the i -cent appointments by the Centennial C 'Uimi.ssion having in charge the cele b:..tiuu of the Declaration of Indepen dence at Philadelphia. Atone time it looked as if it was not only to be a S'.'c'tional hut a political celebration, as di Democrat, certainly in the South, was allowed a position in connection With it, a fact which is still true in this St.;b Hut now by the nppointmert of the Hon. L (.. C. Lamar, of Missis sippi and the Hon. Charles F. Adams, of Massachusetts, as orators, and iu placing General Joseph E. Johnston in ommand of the military parade, Gen eral Sherm:ni being the Chiei Marshal, it begins to look as if it was intended to Lave a Xathmal celebration. We are heartily glad cf this. It will d good throughout the entire country. P. S. Since the above was in type, ft t.: fleeram has been received from Hartford, which is publishel this morning, denying that any selection for orators, poets or marshals have been made. Hartford is the home of General Hawley, the President of the CeLtennial Commision, from which it would seem that the denial was by authority. It is probable then, that our gushing patriotism yesterday and to day has been thrown away, and no such judicious selections are to b made. Y'et we prefer to publish what we have written than to suppress P, as we place upon record the feelings which animate our people in regard to this great celebration. Whiie we wili hail with infinite pleasure every evi dence that true patriotism and love of liberty would give direction to these ceremonies, we are prepared for a contrary course.

Yet, with a bold ness almost tipialnig his ra-cality, he ope rati s in the most conspicuous mau iier and in the n.ost public places. What a miftake this man made in not having carpet-bagged to this coun try in the golden d .ys of 18G7- ;8-'ti9, wiieu his very vices would have been virtue.-:, and iiis clevtr frauds would have been stepping stones to political preferment and iil gotten wealth, iie coiiecting now his ease of manner, his eloquence iu speaking, his attractive appearance, anil his clever deceit fulness, one is dazzh d by picturing the eminence he would have attained ui a ltadieui poiiLcian in the halcyon days cf ixcoiitruciion.

And then it' he had only come among us as a politician the result would not have been entirely unmixed with good. For lie would have been suc cessful, and Jie would thus have saved us the services of men who were as great frauds, and whj had less brains and less hunt sty. This t'ehow Warren evidently mis took his caihng. He fchould by all means income a Kadical politician even now. South Carolina, Missis sippi, Louisiana and Florida yel have inviting ilelds i,'r Lis genius, and once in ollice his little "eccentricities" will only add to his reputation and inliuence. it matttrs not how he gets into the Senate, for he could not so outrage justice and defy law as Spencer iia.s done in Alabama. His change of name can not have been connected with less dishonor than that which attended the transformation of Oregon's Senator Whipple into Mitchell. His liaison with females will hardly equal those of the late Senator from Wi.-consin, Mr. Crpen t. i-'s, while he was President of the Senate. And eeii if he has become intemperate and has failed to "chain up his dog," what a boon compaLion he would make for Chandler of Michigan.

WAV BltNDIS. j A circular of "Caution" was seen on i the streets yesterday, which purported t( emanate lorm the (Jarolina Central liailway Company, It was directed agdi'j-t the negotiation or circulation of certain of their bonds, dated April 1, 1874, aud said to have been obtain ed by Edward Matthews on terms wnicti, the circular aueges, will not I permit their payment. The circular was without signature or official at testation. Mr. Matthews told a re porter of the Tribune last evening that lie knew who was the author of the circular, which had been issued for the purpose of blackmail, Dy one who had formerly held the office of Director, and who had soueht to have more controlling influence. Mr. Matthews stated that the fellow directors of this roan found that he had been indicted for perjury, and finally had him removed from the directory. The Carolina Central liailway Company was formerly the Wilmington, Charlotte & Itatherford liailway, and was reorganized with a new Board of Directors, of which the author of the circular was one, while Mr. Matthews was in Europe. In order to complete the road a certain number of first aud second mortgage bonds was ordered to be issued with the unanimous con sent of all the Directors and stock holders, including the author of the circular. Tne bonds were issued to the stockholders, pro rata, and at a ert ain fixed price, and Mr. Matthews ai- tl at he had taken his proportion of the bonds. Swme of the stockhold ers had rt fused to take their propor tion among them the author of the circular and he, in order that the road might be completed, took those I that were Ufr, and gave the required price for them. The re-organization of the Company had been completed duriugMr. Matthew's absence, and he j . . ' m l uni, iiiii null uoioia, m u lie e i u Hie Company, although owning a lirge proportion of both stock aud bouds, The same jrsoBf "aid Mr. Mat thews, had issued previous blackmail ing circulars over his or.n name, and a suit has been brought against him by the Company for the perpose of re covering damages. The above from the New York Tribune of the 25th inst, has referenca to the longest and most important railroad in this State. The first mort gage bonds referred to are consider ed among the firBt securities in the South, although the opposition of the disappointed ex-director ia well un derstood. His numerous circulars have no weight here where the fa .'ts are well kuown. CEMESSIAL AUTES. The correspondent of the Atlanta JI' raid, from whose letter we pub lished a short extract yesterday in re gard to the Cape Fear section, has other matters to relate of interest to our people. The initials "F. H. A' indicate him to bo a former resident of our city. Mr. Alfriend has lived long enough in this State to appreciate the worth of our people, and in his new home will not forget them. We make the following additional extracts from his letter : Whatever the historic doubts that may be hereef ti r urged and discussed, it is absolutely certain that North Carolina will no longer be divided upon a question which has at times been mooted angrily between most worthy and reputable sous of the Old Njrth State upon both tides of the question. The "uunual skeptics" uiong native Cnrolmians whom Judge Kerr in his oration 60 neatly held up to tne condemnation of his auditors and to the manifest enjoyment of all ot them) will be o.areiul in urging heir doubts hereafter aa to North Carolinas claim to paramount prestige in the work of successful aad there- ore patriotic rebellion one hundred ears ago. Vre ot the present day, know something of her achievements in a later revolution which fools and knaves now call rebellion, but which history will yet adjudge to have been as grand an effort of patriotism as though it boasted the stamp of success. Judge Kerr, alluding to the convic- ion of the North Carolina mind of the great nistonc weaitn oi tne estate in he possession of the Mecklenburg Declaration, bummed up the argument n the statement that "Nortl Carolina sdaius to go into court to prove her risjtit to recover that which she al- eady enjoys." That this sentiment may hereafter animate North Caroli nians to something of that self asser- iou which has long been needed among a people wnose only missing title to high and enduring lame has been the self-appreciation that has iclped to make other Commonwealths liustrious, shouid be the aspiration of every heart that feels an interest in the historical vindication oi tne ooutn. God bless old North Carolina," wns the lervent exclamation of General Lee, when, in a critical moment of oub of the severest struggles of the ate war, North Carolina troops, at a fearful sacrince of blood, restored the doubtful fortunes of a decisive day, aed gave another inscription to tue trippie-barred banner. "God bless . . i i . i , - a i : 1, o!u ioriu uaronua in rue pious worn. which it is to be hoped this Mecklen burg Centennial Celebration heralds . i. i . - i ou tlie pait oi ner sous io give io North Carolina her just prominence in the anuals of America s glory, is a sentiment whose fruititiou will help to place the whole South upon a high vantage ground whenever American history shall be truthfully written and impartially read. F T Judge Kerr, the orator of the day, . . . . - r r I I U i that Joiiu x.err, oi -aswen, uu for thirty years has been famous in North Carolina. An old Whig of the best, standing, he was once the candi date of his party for Governor of North Carolina, at a time when Whig ascendency 'n the old North State had beeu already lost. A orilliant canvass for Governor could add nothiug to John Kerr's fame, for he was as fa mous in North Carolina as was Ken neth Kayner, as Henry A. Wise is Virgiuia, as Winter Davis in Mary 1 .nd, or Dick Menifee in Kentucky. These were grand old days iu Carolina politics when George E. Badger, Wil lie P. Mangum, George Davis, Jobn Kerr, Hugh Waddell and Kennerth liayner led the Whig hosts to the knightly tournament with the Democ racy which Bedford Brown, Bragg, Ku'ffin and Saunders championed. And in those days John Kerr, of Cas well, was eminent, not only in Caro lina, but as an eloquent, cultured and persuasive speaker in Congress. Some people thought that Judge Kerr had a "little too muen oomeaeracy in ma address, to maka Democratic votes in New England, but there are few who I aaowuwu w " o " O " listened to his glowing aeciamauon. 1W WILMINGTON, that will need to be reminded of Judge Kerr's Centennial oration. Ex-Qov. Wm. A. Graham received a large share of attention during the Centennial exercises, as he appeared an eloquent epitome in name and charac ter of the best phases of Carolina his tory, and as he will long survive in the historic portrait-gallery of North Carolina. Twice Governor of North Carolina, he waa also Secretary of the Navy under Fillmore, United States Senator, Confederate States Senator, and candidate for Vice President on the Whig ticket with General Sco t in 1852. Remote from the conspicuous seats on the platform was Alfred M. Wad dell, who, next December will begin liis third term as a member of Con gress from the Cape Fear District. Handsome, genial, gifted, his attitude on the platform was suggestive of the modesty that fitly adorns a knightly nd chivalrous character, and a per son that proclaims his high lineage. Col. Waddell is dionortd and beloved tnronghout North Carolina with the ardor to which he is entitled. Of other noted Carolinians, Senator Merrimon was present, and ex-Gov. Vance was honored, especially during bis fine address at night, with a very flattering attention. A handsome Confederate monument, completed by the efforts of the ladies of Savannah, was unveiled last Mon day, with imposing ceremonies. Ail the military were out, and several so cieties were strongly represented, the "whole being under the management of the old war hero, Gen. Joe Johnston, us marshal of the day. Hon. Julian Hartridge delivered the oration, which "was short, eloquent and suggestive. "'The monument," he said, "is not imply to the dead in the glorious camp of night, but to the living, who liave the same battles to light, the same victories to win, and the same graves to fill." The Tartar population of the Cri mea is reported to be seriously dimin ishing. The obligation of military service leads large numbers of male adults to take flight into Turkey, and the small-pox, moreover, is commit ting great ravages. No sooner is a child vaccinated by a surgeon thau the parents such out the lymph, lest the young Musselman should have any impure Christian blood in him. 't'lif-: jia -i:a i i; i ki:u. Horrible Produce of .alurc-Tlic Mevit-Fifrli of (lie Vegelttble Kiug JOoim. If you can imagine a pineapple eight feet high and thick in proportion, resting upon its base and denuded of leaves, you will have a good idea of the tree, which, however, was not of the color of auauana, but a dark, dingy brown, and apparently as hard as iron, irom the apex of this fusti cated cone, at least two feet in diame ter, eight huge leaves sheer to the ground, like doors swinging back on their hinges. These leaves, whiclr are jointed at the top of the tree at regu- L iar intervals, were eleven or tweive X ieet long, and shaped very much iike ino -lituer icuii ugavo, ui rauiuii Jin. They are two feet throug in their thickest point, and three feet "wide, tapering to a sharp point that looks like a cow's horn, very convex on the outer (but now under) surface, aud on the under (now upper) surface, slight ly concave. This conca o surface was thickly set with strong thorny h oks "like those upon the her.d of the teazle. These leaves, hanging limp and life less, deadgreen in color, had in ap pearance, the strength of oak fibre. The apex of the cone was a round, white concave figure, like a smaller plate set within a larger one. This was not a flower, but a receptacle, and there exuded into it a clear, treacly, 'liquid honey, sweet, and possessed of violent intoxicating aud soporific prop erties. From underneath the rim (so to speak) of the undermost plate, 5 series of long, hairy, green tendriLs, wtretched out in every direction to ward the horizon. These were seven or eight feet long and tapered from ioar tnches to a half inch in dib meter, yet they stretched orut stiffly as iron rods. Above these (irom between the upper and under cup) six white, almost transparent pani reared them selves toward the sky, twirling and twisting with a inarvallous iucessart motion, yet constantly reaching up ward. Thin as reed and firail as quills, apparently, were yet firve or six feet tall, and were so constai itly and vigor ously in motion, with s uch a subtle, Binuous, 6ilent throbbit g against the air, with their euggedticms of serpents flayed, yet daueing on tiieir tails. My observations on this, occasion were f uddenly interrupted by the natives, who had been sJine kiur around the tree with their sbnll voicea,and chant mg what Heudnuk told me were pro pitiatory hymns to the grea-t tree devil With still wilde r tsluieks arid chants they now sui xouuded one of the women, and ur- ;ed her with the points of their javeli ns, uutil slowly, and with despairing; face she climbed up the stalk of the tree and stood on the summit of the twue. the palpi swim ming all abo nt her.

Jau in the &OfitA , N. C, FRIDAY, JUNE 4. 1875. JEFlKKJiO DAVIS. HiwSpeecU at Uouston, .ilaylllh, at the Tcxasi Stale JFaur. Indies, Countrymen, friends and fellow-Citizens of Texas : For lam proud to be one I have had too many evidences of your affection not to be entitled to that honor. I have for many years desired to pay a visit to your State. I was prepared for all that hospitality could offer. I was prepared for all that generosity could give. In the day of trouble and dis aster you would not turn your backs upon me. This is to . your honor, that while other nations have held their leaders respour-ible, and received them with curses as tLa authors of their misfor tunes, you have not chosen to hold me responsible for your miseries. The welcome with which you have received me makes me almost unfit for utterance. You are the descendants of thos?e brave men who, true to their Anglo-Saxon instincts, achieved a glo rious victory on thesilof Texas, from the smoke of which the Lone Star rose and shone with bright eff ulgence. It has been said that the last war was a war of women. If so, 1 hug the charge to my breast; I am proud of it. I was told that I was not expected to deliver you a formal address. Nor I shall I do it. But upon coming here, I I find that this is the opening of the State Fair, and it would be like the j play of Tiichard, with King llichard i left out, if 1 did not make a speech. Your purposes are agriculture, me chanics, commerce. Agriculture was ! the first employment of man. From the record of creation that record wh:ch we know to be true we learn that when the Creator had separated the land from the water, created the fishes and the birds, one thing more was wanted to utilize this creation man to till the soil. Bight well has your President told you ot the honor aud duty of work. But there was still one thing more wanted. Man was created out of the dust of the earth and made a living spirit. But some thing more was rtquired, somethiug nobler for the creation of woman that dust etherealized and ennobled was used for the creatiou of woman, aud we are all the descendants of the Adamic race. By tilling the soil wealth is created, manufactures change the condition of the products of the soil, aud increases their value; commerce interchauges their location, and thus increases their value; but agriculture alone produces wealth. But i may not be that agriculture shall look down on commerce and manufactures. That would be aa if he hand should say to the head or the heart, what use have I for thee '? Mechanics and commerce follow iu the footsteps of agriculture. One of the two sons of Adam ke2t flocks anil herds, and so you who live on the vast plains of Texas are in clud d iu the lists of laborers. You have now reached a point where man ufactures are springing up iu Texas. As a Southern man I have often been ashamed that the very broom corn, which grows iu our fields, in taken to a Northern village, where timber is less plenty than it is with us, and made brooms, brought back, aud that our blessed women are re juired to sweep their lloors with u Yankee broom. Why not make our own wagons, car riages and wheelbarrows ? Why not spin our own yarns.-' The profit would be greater and the freight less. Then you may go on and make cloth; but it will not be until you have a crowded population that you can produce the finer fabric?. I am not ot those who wotiid have you turn away from fields to seek the piof- its which, agriculture would give you more readily. I do not intend to tax your patience by telling you all I know about farming. Mr. Davis here made a graceful al- lusiou to the Giaugers aud the advan tages to be derived from a concentra tion and accumulation of capital. It is deeply regretted that the exigencies of the telegraph will not allow the full production of thia anil some other por tion of his address. I hope the time will come when Texas will make all her own agricul tural implements, and that our wo men may have time to read as many novels at, they please, without being forced to help their husbands com pete with Illinois in the cultivation of their fields. To get our full bene fit of good we must have direct trade. Direct trade will increase the profits iiid diminish the cost. Direct trade will enable you to send out sh.ps, which, like Noun's dove, will go to and fro over the earth, promoting the peace of nations. Then, if ever, are nations to be unified, swords b titou into plough-shares, and spears into pruning-hooks. But to do this we must have ports, and we will have them. I am glad to see that the works berrun for the improvement of the harbor of Galveston are successful, and that there is an enual prospect of the improvement of our own bayou. The river Clyde was -a smaller stream than your bayou, suitable only lor sloops and schooner?; but they have dredged it out until its artificial chan nel accommodates tlie largest ship yard oi tne Jiiugnsn navy. Mr. Davis here alluded at some length to the mvention of a ship which prciposed to carry ten thousauu bales on sixteen feet water. By the aid of such ships he thought that th harbors of the Gulf would be servtd. fbis ship had been tried and found to succeed, makiiig one knot more to the hour than other vessels. Their great breadth of beam, so he i rgued, would accommadte immigrants in largo num bers. This brought Mr. Davis to the ques tion of immigration, and he urged upon the pecp!e the necessity of pro vnliug for immigrants, by establishing agencies in Fhirope, and argued that it would lie better even to pay lor tne passage ot immigrants tnan not get them at 11. Mr. Davis laid great stress upon the necessity of making no premises which could not be sacredly kept. He show ed how the railroads had ?nce eded in bringing immigrants to the country, and he t hought that if they could do it to Northern elands. Texas, w hich had the advantage of them in soil, clima e aud other facilities, could do more. Passing in brief, he reviewed the products of the country. Rut it is mly after you have raisi everytnmg a man wants to eat rnai you can tio this. When you go to au inhabitat of Great Britain and tell him that Texas produces all kinds of fruits aud grain, and then that you import your meat and flour from the North, he may not tell you that he don 5 believe you, but he hardly does. lTou must not buy a barrel of beef and pork, or of flour; you mu3t have a plenty to feed the hungry in ail parts oi me mate. Passing from agriculture to mining, Mr. Davis, in a rapid review (which it is impossible to telegraph before the lines close), referred to the develop ment of the metalic resources of the State. He prophesied that when arte sian wells shall have been dug, the arid plains will become great grape trrnwinir regions, and that there was a man (Gen. Bragg) on the platform abundantly able to bring artesian water to the surface. It was he who was called upon at Buena Vista to jnve the Mexioans a little more grape. J 10 Mr. Davis made a .very lucid exposi tion of the advantages and facilities of the Texas Pacific Railroad, and a graceful allusion to the Galveston, Colorado and Sante Fe Railroad. In conclusion, the orator returned, in a voice all tremulous with emotion, his heartfelt thanks for the sympaty ex tended to him and the honor aad hos pitality of his reception. For the Journal. Conference .'Meeting' at Jlaguolia Hospitality of tlie l'eople JI inis ler in Attendance. Magnolia, N. C, May 28th, 1S75. Mr. Editor : By a resolution of the District Conference, I see you are fur nished with the proceedings of that body, so I will not trouble you with a repetition. We arrived hre safe on Wednesday morning and found qmte a mi.aber of friends at the cars waiting to give us a home. The different journals of the State praise the hospitality of our "City by the Sea," but nowhere have I seen the account of having a picket guard to see if all are furnished with a home. I do not say that these peo ple really have this guard, but it cer tainly appears eo, as n t one of our delegates can stop in the street to look around a little, witnout some one com ing immediately to f urnish him with a home. Verily, these people are kind. We have quite a large delegation here from the different parts of the District, and among them we see the pleasant fc; of that Sunday School veteran, Capt. W. M. Parker, of Wil mingtou, w ho made a sou I-stirring speech yesterday in behalf of Sunday Schools. We hav& preaching at 11 o'clock, A.M., and at 8 o'clock, P. M. On Wednesday the introductory sermon was preached by Rev. J. Sand ford, ou the subject of " Stouing Jesus," and we think all iu the house in the habit oi criticising, then resolved to cease, and we wish that, the same sernou could be heard by some of the critics n your city. Now, Mr. Editor, I will tsll you about the r.ch treat we had yesterday at 11 o'clock. The hour for service having arrived, we were all pleased to see our friend and brother. Rev. T. W.Sadth.enterthe pulpit. Heisayoung mau who is only about twenty-five or six years of age. This young divine preach' d to a large congregation on " Cbritiaii Consecration," and it cer tainly would Lave don credit to a mu3h older head. We hope ye Wil uiingtonians may hear him some time. We notice Rev. J. E. Maun in the Conference room with a peaceful smile resting upon his face. This deserved ly popular preacher looks as if he loved everybody, ami only endeavors, to fol low the example ot the blessed Sa viour. Rev. J. T. Gibl.s, of your city, is also bote with au eye ever watching tlie in terests of his Master's work. Truly he is a faithful worker. Now we come to that prince of preachers, Rev. W. S. Black, F. E. of the Wilmington District, who presides over the deliberations of the Confer ence. He is as much at homo as a i presiding officer, as he ii as a Minister ot the Gospel, and iu e;tuer lie is se cond to none that your correspondent has ever seeu or heard. Uncle Black shows in his face that the spirit of God constrains him. May he long be spared to the people. Yours, Rechab. THE GENERA. ASSEMBLY. TIIiKD DAY. The Assembly met at nine o'clock. After the usual opening proceeding, the Stated Clerk announced that Rev. J. Albert Wallace, from the Presby tery of Holston, had been enrolled as a Commissioner. Dr. Girardeau reported back from the Committee of Bills and Overtures a number of overtures on Publication, Susteutation, anil Systematic Benevo lence, which were referred to appro priate committees. The report of the Trustees of the Assembly was refenrd to a special committee consisting of Messrs. J. A. Billups, J. A. James and W. J.

Wilson, the Assimbiy proceeded to select the place of "meeting of the next Assem bly, and Savannau was selected oy ine unanimous vote of the Assembly. In the course of the diseus.iou thereon, Dr. J. R. Wilson said: I am constrained to add a word. The Commissioners from the Presby tery of Wilmington were officially re quested by the session of the Church m the city of Wilmington, to invite the Assembly to meet .here. I will not, however, put it into execution. 1 would like exceedingly to have the Asstmbiv meet in that Church, so far as I am ner-onally cou' erueil, and all the people would welcome it with cor diahtv; but, on the whole, I would I prefer going to Savannah, and will. therefore, second tne suggest ion maue by Dr. Palmer, that no other plce be put into nomination I do not see how any other place can now be de cently proposed, as two places were intended to be nominated, but the nominations were suppressed. It was made the order of the day lor next Tuesday night, to he ir the report of the Standing Committee on Foreign Missions, public popular ser vices m the interebts of that cause to be held in connection with the report. A similar order, with regard to sus teutation, -as made for Wednesday evening, and a third iu behalf of edu cation for Thursday evening.

XSie Association Paper of the Cape Fear Region The Fayetteville Gazette announces that it is prepared to commemorate the Centennial Anniversary of the for mation of the Cumberland Association, June 20th, 1775. Thi. suggestion elicits our warmest sympathy. It is eminently appropriate ; for that act of the sterling patriots of Cumberland d-serves to be held in high esteem by their worthy dependents. The then situation of Cumberland throws around this bold step a glory not attaching to similar movements made elsewhere. Fayetteville was the commercial centre of a population much given to loyalty? the Regulators and Highland ers tra ing with her merchants were foTttie most part royalists, not only in name but in bold, determined action. The patriots of Fayettevilld then by signing the Articles of Association threw themselves in direct antagonism to tLe bulk of the people trading in that mart, and subjected themselves to the hostility of zealous leaders, who soon afterwards embodied three thou sand leige sons of royalty from among the newly arrived Scotch and those turbulent Regulators who so bitterly opposed the American Cause. It wa5 indeed a Btep, which, when viewed in the light of its surround ings, rises from the glorious to the heroic, and is well worthy to be com memorated by all who appreciate for titude and bravery displayed by patri ots in their country's canse. But while this is so, there are some circumstances connected with the transactions that seem to have escaped the attention of our patriotic Legisla ture of 1830-31, when it gave to this Association a particular prominence. It may not be amiss, as tnis is Cen tennial year, to refer to the page of history as the actors wrote it, and not merely as it might have been. Early in 1771 patriotic citizens in perhaps every county in North Caro lina had formed themselves into com mittees of safety. Iu August, 1774, a State Congress met, being a body un known to the laws, but composed of delegates chosen by the people of the dill" reut counties. This Congress passed resolutions for the government of the people, and provided that they should be enforced by the various Counfy Committees. Pel haps there was no county in the State that did not have its Committee regularly organized under the resolu tions of the State Congress before the winter of 1774-75. Subsequeutly a more perfect organization was made, aud Districts were established, being formed of a number of couuties. Each District had its District Committee. The Wilmington District, it seems, embraced Onslow, Duplin, Sampson, Cumberland, and so on, to the South Carolina line. The proceeding of the Wilmington Committee of Safety show that on the 19th day of June, 1775, the New Hanover County Committee met, and on the same day the Wil mington District Committee also as sembled at Wilmington. In this lat ter, Cumberland county was represent ed. On that day the New Hanover Committee adopted and signed articles of association, being the same pub lished by th3 Legislature of 1830-31, as the Cumberland Association. The same Association paper was also adopted and signed by the Wilming District Committee on the next day, the 20th June. It appears also that a copy of that paper, iu the handwriting of Mr. Robert Rowan, wa3 read at Fayette ville on the 20th June and also adopt ed and signed by the patriots of Cum beriand. A paper substantially the same, having some verbal alterations, was also adopted and signed in Lincoln county in August, 1775. A paper to the same effect, bu: differing consider ably in phraseology was also signed in Pitt c;unty, July 1st, 1775. It is sug gested that a careful examination would reveal the fact that similar as sociation papers were adopted in every county in the State, except in the Tory section, about the same time, and to tho same effect. It is noteworthy that this particular paper, adopted at Wilmington, 19ih June, 1775, and at Fayetteville on the succeeding day, contains the current words of the times that were so effect ively used by Jefferson twelve months thereafter. It reads, with some omis sions: "We, the subscribers holdiDg ourselves bound by the most sacred of all obligations, &c, do unite our selves under every tie of religion and honor, &c, and hereby solemnly en yaying, &o.t that we will go forth and bo ready to sacrifice our lives ana for tunes to secure the fredom and safety (of our country).

CASPER HAUSER IDENTIFIED. SOLUTION OF A JIYSTEKV THAT AX ONE TIJ1E PtTXZIKD ALL EUROPE. An Idiotic Youth tlie I i gr Ii t f u I Duke of Pad en A daughter of the O e r m a n Emperor married a Prince with the Bar Sinister Some Extraordinary Develop ment. New York Sunday MurcuryJ The mystery of the mysterious indi vidual, Casper Hauser, has puzzled the entire world. The fate of the un fortunate youth atm one time created more excitement and eager curiosity throughout Europe than any event of the present century. Although his true parentage and the names of those through whose instrumentality he was consigned to his bloody grave have been established almost beyond a doubt, a dread of the consequences of displeasing so many illustrious person ages has hitherto prevented the affair being sifted with that regard for facts which alone could elicit tho complete truth. In a strange manner the mys tery has heen solved, and the Mercury is the first American paper to lay the solution before its readers. CASPER HATTSEIt. On the evening of the 2Gth of May, 1828, a casual passenger through the streets of Nuremberg met a youth about fifteen or sixteen jear3 of age, whose singular appearauce at once ar rested his attention. Although strong ly built, he seemed scarcely able to use his limbs, while his eyes weie hardly strong enough to bear the dim twilight of the late summer eve. Iu his hand he held a letter addressed to a well known citizen, which he pre sented to every passer by with an uu meanig stare. Wheu conducted to the house of the person to whom he ap peared to be directed he was offered food, but refused with tlisgust all except plain bread and water, and, throwing himself down on a heap of straw, went into a sound sleep. The persons in whose charge he was left did not know what to make of him, for, on the one hand he displayed the mingled curiosity and stupid insensi bility of some being to whom all is new, but who has no perceptible ap preciative faculty, while ho could re peat certain words with distinctness and in a distinct hand wrote down the name of Casper Hauser. As an idiot or clever, impostor, they finally deter mined to send him to prison, where a close examination showed him to be incapable of any attempt at fraud, but on the contrary, to bo a victim himseif of crime. The soles of his feet were perfectly soft and white, proving that he never had been permitted to take exercise. It was clear that ho had never seen and never learned anything; he was a complete stranger to the commonest ties and duties which bind mankind together, and utterly igno rant of nature or even existence of so ciety or morality; io short, he had ev idently vegetated in complete isola tion, and literally in obscurity, for he could not bear the effect of light upon his eyes, and neither knew at first tho difference between night and doy, nor could he measure time. Protestor Danmcr charged himself with his edu cation. By gentle degree., armed with the utmost patience he attempted to awaken the dormant faculties of this extraordinary being. He learned with rapidity, and vague misty recollections of the long, dreary purgatory in which the years of his childhood had been spent rose before his mind. He would often talk aboat his jailer, for whom, however, he did not entertain any feel ings of ill-will, but rather wondered, in his simplicity, how he could have offended him. Tho Professor, who had entirely discontinued his research es as to the birth of his unfortunate pupil, encouraged him to trace back the depths of his memory, aud hoped eventually to collect the scattered facts he from time to time obtained into some tangible shape. Thus three or four years rolled peaceably along. Tho world, tired of its nine days' wonder, had forgotten all about Casper, and he might fondly hope that bis enemies had done the same thing; but it was not so. They had not let any of his movements escape them, and probably the professor's hopes hadbeen too loud ly expressed.for an attempt was made to ASSASSINATE THE POOR YOUTH, which failed, and resulted in obtain ing for him a more powerful protec tion than that of tho worthy scientist, that of the earl of Stanhope, an En glish nobleman, who at that time was residing in Germany. Ou the 14th of December, 1833, Hauser, who had been left alone, was enticed to a solitary grotto by an unknown man, who plunged a dagger into his heart. Every effort was made by the author ities to discover the assassin, and Lord Stanhope offered a large reward for hia arrest, but all in vain. Among those well acquainted with tuch parti culars of the case as it was not practi cable for the strong ai m of despotism to suppress, but little doubt will be found to exist that poor, friendless, murdered Casper Hauser was by birth. A SOVEREIGN PRTN'CF. New developments prove beyond a doubt that Hauser was the sou of the Grand Duke Charles, of Baden, and his wife tStephania, consequently the legitimate heir to the throne. Charles, who had married Stephmia, the neic of Naooleon the i irst, in 180R, was a man of reckless cnaraeter. Not long after marriage he became enamored oi the Baroness Geyer von Geyerberg, whom he raised to the rank ot Coun tess von Hotchberg. This woman at tempted to poison he Grand Ducbe .s, and when the latter was delivered ol an heir to the crown of Baden, ."die ciiised that child to be stolen. It was the unfortunate creature afterward known under the Dame of Casper Hau ser. The Grand Duchess was assured bv the physicians, ail of whom were in the Day of the Countess that her child had died. She believed it until her husband died, when she 6ecretly caused the INFANTS COFFIN TO BE Ol'tAtJO, It was emrjtv. Sometime afterwards aViA crnVA hirth to another eon. but the mother seemed to believe that h nhihl had been taken from her and another substituted. This was realij the case, the substituted baby being an illegitimate son to whom the Coun teas Hochberg had given birth abou the Kama time. The bastard was christened Leopold, and became heir nnnare.nt of Baden. The grand uuen Hsu tifiver snoke to him. even after he haA V.Mwm trrand duko.

Rftden He had no right whateve , position: for the real heir, Casper Hauser, was then alive. W hen inquiries began to be made into Casper Hauser'a fate, the Countess Hochberg caused him to be murdered.

His daughter. the Grand Duchess of Badeu, refuses to appear in public since the disclosures have been made. A.YUrilEii DUV1U5I IIOUKOB, A Little irl Killed in Church The Sexton Her Supposed 71 ur- j derer. Boston, May ?. Another murder even more horrible in its details than that of Mrs. Bingham, a few weeks since was perpetrated iu the city this afternoon. A bright little girl, five years of a?e, was murdered in a church and her bruL-.cd and mutilated body carrinl up into a tower and thrown upon the floor of ilie loft. Tho victim was Mable II. Young, who with her widowed mother resided with her grandfather at 50 East Chester Park. The latter, Mr. James Hobbs, is a well known and highly respected merchant, senior of the firm of Hobbs, Pope & Co. This r.fterroou bttie Mabel, in company with an aunt, attended the Sunday school anniversary exercises of Warren Aw unu B-iptisfc Church, and, on coming out of church, at half past three o'clock, the aunt remain ed iu the vestibnle about ten minutes conversing with some friends, and as she was storting home she missed tho child, who a lew minutes before was ft her side. At first it was supposed t lie had gone back into the church, but when nhe was not found inside, and ou! -iders declared that she had noL come out, her aunt be came '.lisuia - d, and search commenced in every direction. About four o'clock some ladiea at au open winilow across the stri c-t heard faint cries of a child apparently fivm lLo church tower, and noticed an unusual commotion among the doves thrt Fw-ivmod m and out of the window. Some young men who had joino.l in the search started at enca to ascend the tower. They foutd the door leadiug up from tho organ to the loft kicked, and tm forcing it open were btatt'.ed to see fresh blood upon tho floor and bteps leading up to the next land.ng. Th -y aI--o found a strip of board covered with blood at one end, vial heard low meanings from above. Aseeudu'g a long, steep flight of stair and raising the scuttle, which resisted the strength of n strongman, they found the mangled body of tho child lying near ine edge of the scut tle, r" though it Lad. been carried up the steps and ha-ti!y thrown down there. Carefully they carried her down into tho church vhero a large number of per rons had congregated and into the presenco of her agonized friends. From the top of her head, which, was broken hi, tho blood and brains were slowly oozing, whilo the nose was crushed in, and tlie face ter- !y mangled. Thomas Piper, who las been sexton of the church about year, was soon after arrested and is now confined at the chief's tifiice. He was engaged at woik about the church, but his suspicious manner and his de nial that he had the Lc-vs when the two keys fittii g the doors of tho tower were taken from his person, points trougly to him as the party. He is a dark, heavy net man, about 20 years old, and has once before been under he suspicion of murder, but was din- charged irom want of Bufiieient evi dence. Many of the police still believe him guilty of the murder of a young girliisDorche'-ter ilistr'ct, about fifteen months since. Hits last ait air nas - r -t - -AI- caused a proiouuti sensation m me community, and intense excitement prevails. The very boldness of the : affair lends "uidi'ional horror to it. Scarcely three-quarters of an hour elapsed from thr- time the child came out of the vestibule of the church un til she was found in a dying conelition.
