OpeMlntr Dar-The Various Sport a
A. Oar Crowd tand nach Enjoy
ment. For some time past the officers and
members of the Bt. George and St. An
drew's Athletio Club have been in
dustriously pushing forward the pre
paration of their grounds, just outside
the city limits, for the purposes of
their grand opening on Thanksgiving
Day. The grounds, comprising ten
acres, have been terraced and graded,
tracks for the various sports have been
laid off and topped with clay, fences
have been built, a grand stand, capa
ble of seating many hundreds, has
been erected, thejericket ground has
-been laid off and turfed, and a battery
for rifle practice has been erected.
The gentlemen who conceived the
idea of forming on athletic club in
Wilmington, and had the business tact
and ability to inaugurate tho institu
tion on its present extensive il.-n,
deserve not only the commendation
and thanks of the entire community, but
deserve to have their names iuecribd
on an enduring monument, commemor
ative of the event of Tbureduy.
Nothing can be bitter calculated to
bring our people out together in social
intercourse upon terms of fraternity
and good feeling, one toward another,
than an exhibition of the ir.enly nj.ortp
of the gymnasium, participated in by
men and youths whom we daily meet
and associate with. Besides this, thp
physical development of the eysfern,
and the beneficial results to the heaUL
of those whose business overtakes the
mind and enervated the body, are the
rewards which such an organization
will freely shower upon its iiit-mbers.
The enthusiasm for athletic sports
among the Greeks, their love of the
beautiful, which was gratified in th
gymnasia by the sight of the fiuefet
forms in tie prime of youth, and by
the halls and colonnades adorned with
statues and pictures, and occupied by
teachers of wisdom and philosophy,
rendered these places the favorite
resorts of the old and the young.
Gymnastics even formed an essential
part of the celebration of all the great
festivals, and to be unable to partici
pate in these manly exercises, from a
physioal incapacity that arose from a
want of development, was a case for
the bitterest reproach. "lie can
neither swim nor write," is the well
known term of reproach which the
Greeks heaped on all such. Swim
ming and running were much esteem
ed, and the Olympiads wee named
from the victors in the race. Hiding
on horseback, dancing and -wrestling
were pre ot iced to the fullest extent,
Dancing was practiced, not ior social
enjoyment of the society of the fairer
ex, m with us, but for the purpose of
giving grace and confidence - to the
orator on the rostrum and in the forum.
With the decline of Greece, the
gymnastic art naturally degenerated,
and became gradually reduced to the
zeroises of the professional athlete,
which survived the ruin of the land of
their birth. The Olympic games con
tinued to be celebrated several cen
turies after Christ, and it is thought
by some modern travelers that they
could find traces of the ancient games
continuing to the present day. "You
have the Pyrrhic dance as yet," says
Byron. The Romans imitated the
gymnasia, as they did everything
Grecian, but with them, these sports
never beoame national, as they were
with the Greeks.
Now we are a strong advocate for a
free bestowal of public support, both
moral and pecuniary, upon the noble
efforts which the Bt. George and St.
Andrew's Athletio Club is making in
this direction. It haa made a brilliant
beginning, and all that is now needed
to make it a grand success is the
patronage and encouragement of the
The weather on Thursday was pro
pitious to the opening. A bracing air,
bat not too cool, a cloudy sky, but no
r un, favored the comfort of both the
athlete and the spectators. Notwith
standing the Club flag did not arrive
in time to welcome its visitors and
wave over the joyous assemblage, its
officers in oharge of the entertainment
had provided everything necessary to
exhibit a hearty welcome to all. At
aa early hour the grounds were
thronged with the better class of Wil
mingtonians. "Youth and beauty,"
the old, the young, and the middle
aged were all there. All day long,
from 10 o'clock, until the shades of
evening closed around them, groups of
merry men and youths could be seen
assembled at different points in the
grounds, either witnessing or partici
pating in the various sports. Kind
words and cheeiful greetings bespoke
the joy of the hearts within, and gave
evidence of a happy day for all who
were present.
At 10:30 o'cloek the rifle team com

Dear Journal :
Please allow me a short space in the

ship and the pilots.
it nas been reportea at various
times that-the pilots of this place go to

It i Raid that '"competition is the

Clinton, N. C, Nov 29th.
In many respects we believs
market prices are lower, and the
of living less in Wilmington than
other city, north or south. It is
that it is so, for out people just
are 'Daaiy ou. ior stamps.
Who wants to bet that the woman
who defined a man as "a conglomera
ted mass of hair, tobacco smoke, con
fusion, conceit and boots," isn't an
elderly maiden who has been disap
pointed some time or other ?
Tbe conference.
We publish this morning the Ht of
the Ministers and delegates composing
the North Carolina Conference of the
M. E. Church South, together with
the boaieb" to which they have been
assigned. This is one of the largest
eoclesiascal bodies that meets in the
South, being the- next to the largest
Conference (we believe) in the South
ern Church. We know they will be
welcomed among us and that our citi
zens will strive to render their visit
agreeable. Most of the members will
arrive ou the Tuesday evening trains.
Some of the standing committees and
candidates for the Ministry have al
ready arrived, and the examination of
classes on the studies will begin to-day
at the lecture room of Front street

tbe t'otloi Itaile of Italefgh.
At the graud banquet given by the
Italeigh News Publishing Company
complimentary to the Board of Trade
of that oity Mr. Leui H. Adams in re
sponse to the toast "Our Cotton Trade"
responded, relating the following in
teresting facts concerning the cotton
trade of that c ty:
Mr. President and Gentlemen: I am
sorry that you have n,t made a better
.-election ou ttiis oocasion, but sir, as I
:tm one of the oldest cotton dealers
now iu Raleigh I know a few fac's that
'jfhy be import int to jou all
Oar cotton trade was very small ten
years ago. on'y about 500 to 700 bales
b-hig s, id here thn anr-nally. I
hii?k this ye.ar our receipts will re tch
a tout 4'.00t) or 45,000 bwleP, aud it is
now grading with the best, cotton in
th country. The oi l fields that were
before t!;0 wr turned out as worthless
are now our beat cotton iand, arid I
believe irom the be.se information thot
I have that in a few years this part of
North Carolina will stand as welt for
high grade cotton as any section in
the South. Our receipts are increas
ing from 7,000 to 10.000 annually We
are receiving cotton from about fifteen
couuties, and our territory is extend
ing every year, and I be-live the day
is n t dist nt when tbe peopJe in East
ern North Carolina will send their
cotton here. What we want at pres
ent is a railroad to Rocky Mount and
Tarbnro. Op.-n that line, and in one
vear thereafter our receipts will reach
100,000 bales.
I think we bava held our own in
Raleigh durit g the monetary pressure
of tha ast tvo years bitter than any
town iu tho country. Look at the nu
nurous faiiurrs iu very quarter of
the Cuion, and yet there has not been
ont; in Raleigh. Oar business commu
nity has not only sustained the shock,
but is King foiward. We now have
betve u i,0 and 40 cotton buyers. Jf
the business of Rtdeigh contiunts to
in.: prove as in the pas, it will soon be
ono of the leading cotton markets of
tho: country. Our Lope for the future
is brigLt.
Fort Fisher Capi. John 71. Sutton.
It is with pleasure, for more reasons
thtm Ofe, that we give insertion to the
following letter from "Survivor." The
writer of these liues knew Capr.Sutton
ultimately, both as a fellow soldier
aud warm personal friend, and none
did he know more brave aud gallant.
During the two fights he was conspic
uous for his daring, and received the
plaudits if his commanding officer:
Lewiston, N. C, Nov. 22, 1875.
Editors Norfolk Virginian.
GNTs: In perusing the very inter
esting report of G. in your paper of
the 19th tilt., I noticed that, in giving
tho names of the different commands
which took part in the ast fight at
Fori Fisher, Company C. Third North
Carolina Battalion, commanded by
Capt. John M. Sutton, was net men
tioned. There was not a braver or
more chivalrous man at Fisher than
Capt. Sutton, and 1 hev been told
that the lamented General Whiting on
his death bed bequeathed his sword
to Capt. Sutton for meritorious coc-
duofc during the fight.
C pt. Suttou a compauv numbered
forty-five effective men, of which fif
teen were, killed and wounded, the
Captain himself being wounded soon
after Geueral Wniting. The Company
also took part in the first fight, for
which it received a complimentary no-t-ce.
Capt. Sutton died 6ooa after the
war. Had he been living, no doubt
he would have been wth thoe who
were at the reunion at Wilmington.
