Tbe probabilities now are that there
will be the largest assemblage on the

to celebrate the centennial ann.versary
of tbe historical event, that has been
brought together for many years past
at aDy point in tbe Cape Fear section.
The public ouiees of Pender county
will be closed and everybody in the

large delegation from Wilmiugtou will
be present. The two military com

will attend, armed an 1 in full dress,

I.ti ve Blunder.
Editors of the Journal: No good cit
izeu can visit our court house during
court term, without being pained at
the moral aud intellectual complexion
of the. juries. Qo when yon will, there
is always tho hudw sort of a jury, with
hardly an intelligent face am ng the
twelve. As iucompeteut as the better
class of negroes are for the responsible
duties of jurymen, it is a rare thing
to see more than one or two of the
respectable ouwh lu iug a session of
court, tho selection having been made
apparently from tbe worst of thin iu
It is a serious matter to refb ct that.
by legislative enactment, so jaany of
our yon ig, vigorous, competent white
men are exempted from this dufc ,
leaving tbe selection of jurymen to a
much nrualh-r number of citizens, fre
queutly embirrassing to tbe oftieer of
he c ;nrt. I refer to the '-xemplion o'
fireman. By an unfortunate act, of the
L.gislaaire thi exemption was de
creed, and the ir.j notice of it is b. com
ing more and more manifest every
yuar. If our county is to be afflicted
session after session with such juries
as the average ones siucti tbe recon
struction, then will the trial br jury
degenerate into what it is not far re
moved from now a mere farce.
So then, jast with the superficial
view which your correspondent has
made of this matter, added to their
knowledge of the facts, the public
will plainly see the source of the mis
fortune which is so surely coming
upon us year by year. There is no
escape from baring negro jurymen,
but the proper officer should be re
quired to make his selection with some
view to titni-ss or evn d -cency. The
law should be repealed which grxnis
exemption to any class of c -lzeus be-
otuso of services rendered State or
county. It is all very well to have
faithful firemen, but it is a serious
calamity fo hnve incompetent juror-.
As the matter now stands there is no
rson why, in tho course of tir-e, a
lrge mnjonty may not escape jury
duty by joining a tire company when
vacancies occur and it is a well known
fact that many join theye companies
for the sole purpose of enjoying this
A reform must be commenced in
this matter, and it ia as well that it
should begin as suggested above, for
your correspondent is well aware that
the points touched upon come far
from covering the whole ground. This
reform is certain to come sooner or
later whether we will or no, and it
behooves every good citizen t reflect
upon tne matter aud use his influence
for the accomplishment of the reform

From the Mobile Register we get

a million dollars were lost. Tht; Reg
We stated in the Register Sunday
that two boys, while out bunting in
Choctaw Poiut Swamp, Saturday,
found a number of letters which they
took borne, and whicn upon exumina
tion proved to be regularly . mailed
matter. They returned to tbe swamp
in order to find out something mor in
regard to these letters, rud after
searching a short while they fonud the
leather mail bag, which hail been cut
open. Tbe bag and letters were then
taken to the postoffice and turned over'
to the postmaster, wli.i bad them
Newt'd up iu the bag and returned to
the postmaster at New Orleans, at tbe
same lime ad vising him of tueparticii
iars. I?i order to obtsiu definite and
reliable i-formation concerning this
mystery we called at the postoffice, and
met Mr. James R. Eagon, nss gtant
postmaster, who told us th bag be
longed to the mail of the 7th of Feb
ruary, from New Orleans to New York.
It, was not in the mail car, but, in thf
bHggage car; the m.id cleik had
nothing to to do with it -it belonged
to what is called the fast mail, and was
given over to the buggage master, who
became responsible lor its sale ae-
bveiy to the baggage mas-ter of the
next connecting train, lhere were
upwards of $500,000 iu drafts and ex
change, in this md). Most of tbe
foreign mail has been recovered, but
l.ttle or none of the domestic mail.
The postmaster at New Orleans sent
a letter yesterday thankiug the post
master here for what he bad done, and
intimating that steps would be taken
immediately to unravel this mystery.
It is indeed remarkable that a Unit d
States mail bag, containing drafts and
bills of exchange, and perhaps money,
to the amount of $oOO,000 ana ups
wards, should be turown out of a pas
senger car and robbed, and yet not a
soul knew anything about it. It was
only accidental that the discovery was
made. The bag and letters might
have lain in that swamp for years if
these boys had not happened there in
nuest of birds. We understand
snecial United States detective has
been sent for : in the interim our
wo thy aud indefatigable local detec
tives are doincr all that lie in their
power to get a clew but tuna far their
success has been nix. All day yester
day and Sunday men were wading
about the swamp hunting letters, and
brought Quito a number to tne post
office. The swamp covers an area of
three quarters of a mile square and is
full of moccasins.

Compauy, aud others, participatf d in
the diseussion. The memorial pre
pared by Messrs. George Opdyke aud
P. Farrellj to Congress, and a currency
report was adopted.
lhe memorial declares convertible
paper is equal to coiu when issued only
to the amount necessarily required fo
trade, aud that incouvertible paper is
luxurious, inasmuch as it is issued at
the caprice of the government. The
present inconvertible paper volume is
found to be only a little in advauce.
per capita, of the rate that existed be
fore the war, through which the cur
rency was greatly inflated.
A return to specie payments, though
much to be desired, would be disad
vantageous unless tlie government had
at least $150,000,1)00 in gold in its
valts, and as tnia is not there by at
least two-thirds, resumption in 1879
would be impracticable, as the drain
of gold from this country ia jnach
greater than the import.
The report demands that the Treas
ury Department add $10,000,000 an
nually to the gold reserve, and that the
national ba'-ks ba compelled to return
all gold leceived by way of interest;
that the act providing for resumption
on January 1, 1879, be repealed; that
greenbacks to the extent of eighty per
cent., ba issued iu the place of na
tional bank notes withdrawn from cir
culation, and that $50,000,000 worth of
United States bonds bearing 3 65 per
cent, interest be authorized to be con
vertible at will iutd legal tender notes.
They claim the adoption of the above
plan will restore couddence and re
move fear of future financial trouble,
give elasticity to currrency.and finally
lead to resumptioti at a time when it
will be beneficial to the commercial in
terests. Messrs. Opdyke, Orton, Tousey,
Satterlee and Clarke were elected as a
delegation to present the memorial to
The lumber dealers of Pennsylvania
are somewhat of tbe same opinion.
They have numerous. y signed a me
morial to Congress from which wo
quote as follows:
That we demand tliat tne currency
of the country shall be based upou the
national credit, and that its volume
shall be regulated by the law of supply
That whilst we recognize gold as a
valuable p irt of the currency, and that
it is desirable that gold shall be at par
with currency, we beiive that resump
tion cannot be forced by merely legis
lative dir-iction, and that the law which
proposes to compel resumption in 1879
is impracticable. That it has so unset
tled all prospective values and so
alarmed capital and deterred ievest-
men's iu productive industries as
greatly to aggravate the financial dis
tress, aud that it should be repealed,
without delay or condition.
That in view of the fact that the six
per cent, currency bonds of the Uu'ted
States, payable, principle and interest,
in currency, and into ybih no gold
basis enters, are higher iu the market
thau the six per cent, gold bouds, and
are at a premium of twenty -five per
cent., whilst gold is at a premium of
only thirteen per cent., or, iu other
words, that the currency bouds are ut
a premium of twelve" per cent, above
gold, gives conclusive reason to believe
that currency convertible at will into
bonds bearing interest at a rate not
exceediug 3.65 per cent, in currency
would nee instantly to the par of goid.
That we believe that sound financial
policy requires tnat the value of the
bond shall be brought down by a re
duction of interest, and that the value
of the currency shall be brought up
by making it convert ible into bo ids,
and that iuter-couvertibility of cur
rency and bonds, at the will of tlie
holder, would speedily establish gold
and currency at equivalent values, and
lead to prompt resumption of specie
payment aud the immediate revival of
That we are opposed to either con
traction or expansion of the currency
by any arbitrary limitations ot its
That money is only an instrument
of commerce, and we are opposi d to
ll attempts fo make the business
of those who use money in productive
industries, subservient to the interest
of those who lend it.
That a currency convertible into
bonds cannot fall balow the value of
such bonds; that such a currency can
not become depreciated, and a cur
rency not depreciated cannot become
That we demand that the currency
which the government compels the
people to take it, shall itself receive.

It was a calm, beautiful xuorning in

Platte river, at St. Vraiu's, makes a

almost due east at the foot. We
thought we would ride up the river a
few milet, and then, striking north
west into the broad open prairie, where
w should bo most likely to find our
game, return y a t-hort cut acro-s th
prairie to the fort; though it made lit
tle difference to us whether we returned
to-night or. to-morrow, as we were ac
customed to camping out.
We rode up the river until almost
noon, seeing many deer and wolves
for oue could hardly ride through this
tall grass a mile without seeing them
yet, as we were notlookiug after th;s
kind of game, we paid no attut on to
them until nearly noon, when, feeling
somewhat tired and hungry. Bob, who
was nn excellent shot, killed a fine
buck; and, dismounting, we made t
most delicious meal on the young ten
Mounting, after dinner, we struck

It was about, four o'clock in the after
noon, ju-t as wa were begiuning to get
discouraged, and we were thinking of
turning our horses' heads towards
home, when we discovered the objects
of our search. They were two buff t
loes quietly feeding on a little rise of
the piairie the first rise we had dis
covered sine- leaving the river. We
were now many mil. s from where we
had left the river at noon, but hoped
iye were not far from the fort by a di
rect route across the prairie, though
we did not know how f r, neither of
us having been out there before.
Hurrah, Fred! exclaimed Bob, put
tiug spurs to his horse uud getting ex
cited. "Now for some sport, aud
buffaloes' tongues for supper," and
away we went at a reckless break neck
Our game was a loDg distance off

We agreod to separate as soon as we
reached the top of tbe ridge, aud t-ach
take our gmo aud charge down upon
them aud capture both, if possible. As
we came dashing up to the top of tho
bill they dicovered us anil immedi
ately took to flight. Buffaloes cau
run very fast, notwithstanding their
weight; they seem to gather momen
tum as they proceed, aud are not
easily ruu dowu. We made our choice
imm diately and gave pursuit.
My horse was flet but the tall gr tss
tangled his feet, aud I ha 1 a long bard
chase before 1 came up with my game.
I paid no attention to Bob; his game
had taken a different direetiou fr-.m
mine, and we were soon widely sepa
rated. After a hard chase, I came near
enough, I thought, to veuture a shot
perhaps, if I did not kill him, I could
cripple him aud thus st p him some
what iu his mad career. I brought my
rifle to my shoulder quickly; but as I
fired my horse stumbled slightly, his
feet having become tangled in the
gra; s, aud I missed my aim, but struck
the beast in the shoulder instead of
tbe heart; and the ball being large,
made a terrible wound, from which
the blood flew in a stream.
This maddeued him; and turning
quickly, he charged with a terrible
had snort, and half roar down upon
me. My horse was taken by surprise
and frightened; and in springing partly
to one eide, as if to turn suddenly aud
fly away from the mad creature, his
feet caught in the tangled grass, aud
he fell, throwing me many feet over
The fall did not hurt me, and I was
on my feet iu an instant; but before I
could reach my horse he was up jud
bounding away over the prairie, leav
ing me to my fate.
I had no time to think whether I
fancied the situation or not, for the
mad bull was upon me almost; 'tud
with a look of despa r afier my flying
horse, 1 ran, I knew not whither, but
with an instinct of selt-pre-ervation;
all this happened in an instant. I had
doped tbe maddened creature ' would
pursue my hors--;' but not so the
buffalo kuows well who is his worst
enemy. I was fleet, of f ot; for I bad
run for my life many Units; but the
tall giass impeded my progress, and I
kuw I could hold out but a feyv mo

life. Hete I wa---, upou this broad

where, nor had tim j to look; tne grass
tangling my feet aud takiQji away my
strength, and a wounded bufifa'o with
in a few yarus of me, and gaining
upon me at everv bound.
I thought of my revolver, aud that I
would sell my life as dearly as possi
ble. I always carried it iu my belt,
and perhaps I couid throw it over my
shoulder and shoot tbe bull in the eye.
I had no hope of the bail doing him

But what should I do now? I knew
I could not hold on to him long, as my
strength was nearly exhausted, having
ran so far before I fell. I had nothing
to kill him with not even a penknife.
His wound was bleeding profusely,
and my hope was that he might be
come exhausted first: but he seemed
far from that now, while J seemed very
near to it. I knew my strength could
hold out but little longer; aud to let
go was certainly death. The bull
would suddenly take a freak and run
and bellow with all his might, 'drag
ging me with velocity then he would
stop and with a terrific snort attempt
to turn on me, and it was more than I
oould do with my failing strength to
keep out of his way, and several times
his horns rent my clothing.
This state of things could not con

my arms nearly pulled from their
sockets worried almost to death and
about to loose my hold when, as the
mad creature paused an instant, the
sharp crack of a rifle rang out noon

one plunge, and fell upon his side in
the deuth struggle.
I was safe, but it came not a mo
ment too soon. I, too, fell to the
ground, more dead than alive. The
sequel is soon told. It was Bob who
had saved me. He had been more
f .rtuuate than I, and after a hard
chase bad killed his game, and thn
looked round for me. The first thing

It is announced from Washington
that the distinguished lawyers of the
House Judiciary Committeo are in
doubt as to whether the House pos
sesses tne power oi expelling two of
its members who aro accused we may
oay conviciea oi aisnonesty and
bribery previous to their becoming
members. These individuals are
Scbumaker of New 'York and King.
of Minnesota. The facts in their cases
are quite plain. At the investigation
into the Pacific Mail corruption they
were proven to nave been active agents
in the dispensation of the bribery fund
oi a minion o collars, and their names
figured iu the list as recipients of a
considerable slice of that generous
pie. When the developments were
made they found it convenient to shake
the dust of the United States off their
feet. Mr. Scbumaker was suddenly
called to Europe, and Mr. Kiug
abandoned his dinuesota bonu for a
temporary residence in Canada. We
do not know that they have ever de
nied the allegations elicited in the in
vestigation, although they did take
refuge in such vague replies and as
severations of injured innocence as are
common in statesmen of their sort who
aro detected in dark transactions.
They were elected to the present Con
gress, and were not too" modest to
claim their seats.
As we understand it, the technicality
upon which the Judiciary Committee
hang is that, not having been mem
bers of the House at the time of com
mitting the offences charged, they are
not amenable to it for their previous
conduct, and that the latter does not
now disqualify them from now holdrg
seats, xne question is not. a new one.
but it peems to us that the Consfitu-
i tion clearly covers it in providing that
i .. . " """"""" J''o"
oi tne quaiincations oi members
eiecteu. me power is m no way
limited or restricted. If the majority
oi tne Mouse does not consider a mem
ber qualified it can refuse him his seat,
unseat him after he has taken it. There
is no doubt as to the criminality of
King and Scbumaker; the testimony
against them is plain and direct, and
spread upon the records. In these
instances, the House would set an ac
ceptable example of reprobation of
corruptionists if it would relegate both
the New York and Minnesota Con
gressmen to private life. They have
been turned over to the courts for dis
position, but through the shifts and
devices of sharp practice they have
never been brought to justice, and it
is not likely they ever will be, unless
tbe house gives them their deserts.
There is no question of partisanism to
complicate the issue, as KiDg ia a Re
publican and Schumaker a Democrat.
Whatever report the committee may
make, it is to be hoped that some Re
publican member will move the expul
sion of King, and then, if the majority
decide he is fit to occupy a eat, the
country will know vhere to place the

would do the best he could end try to

only to detain him hero another day,
