The association of officers of the
Third Regiment, North Carolina In
fniitry, will celebrate their tenth anni
venury to-day. They will visit the
Sound and while sitting around the
festive board, strolling along the stwids
of the beach, or reclining on tlie grassy
plats under the shades of the everlast
ing live oaks, they will doubtless "fight
their battles o'er again" and at the
same time call up many of the pleas
ant reminiscences of the t ying period
when they were knitted together in
bonds stronger than steel. We noticed
ou the streets yesterday Mr. Butler of
Fuyettevillo. who was the gallant
eiisig i of that renowned regiment.

A C'liuse ffr ;i Purpose.
Yesterday evening, about duek, an
exciting chase after a shop-lifter
created a momentaiy stir with the
crowd that usually gathers on lowei
Market street about that hour. Two
negro boys entered thj clothing store
of M--. A. David, on Market, near
i' roni street, and one ot them pre
tended to be desirous of purchasing
some clothing, and while Mr. David
was engaged iu waiting on some cus
tomers the smaller of the two com
menced to inspect a lot of pants that
were lying in tn open drawer. Mr.
YVenlzel, the cutter of the establish
ment, observing the conduct of the
boy approached and took him to the
rear of the store, saying that he would
sell him anything he desired. After
looking at some p .uts, ho declined to
buy the-u, mid the two boys went
out of the store. bt soon returned,
when .Mr. Weutzel noticed one of them
shift a lot of clothing uuder his coat
aud sb-.rt for the door. Mr. Wentzel
theu made after him and the race com
aienced. The thief had the length of
the store the start. Up Market to
Front, up Front to the Pureed House,
tnen through the Purcell IIoui- alley
to Second, up Seciyid to Princess, and
here the thief managed to create a
diversion. The thief had manage 1 to
make good his escape with his plunder
safe in his hand up to this point, rnu
ning through ciowds who made no
effort to stop him, although they saw
that lie was pursued and heard the cry
of "stop thief." .The distance for a
time was gradually diminishing be-
rtweeu the pursuer and the pursued,
and the thief thought he must
be caught in spite of the fair
chance which the spectators gave
him to escape. IIj therefore re
sorted to a ruse. He had evidently
been vrell posted in "Livingstone's
Explorations in Africa,"and knew how
the natives manage to steal the young
lions from the den of the lionese.
Livingstone says that when the lioness
finds that her young have been stolen,
she will take the track of the thief as
the bound follows his game by the
"nose." When she comes near over
taking the thief, he drops oie of the
young, the affection for which is
stronger in the breast of the lioness
than is the feeling of resentment. She
therefore takes her recovered treasure
back to its home, und starts out again
iu search of tho other. Meantime, the
wily thief has made good his escape.
The thief of the clothing yesterday
pursued the same wily scheme. When
he reached Princess street be dropped
two pairs of pants, which Mr. Wentzel
secured, aud turned the chase oyer ta
the police )

We learn by a passenger ou last
evening's train from Weldon t"nat two
sons of 11. B. Htch, who was myste
riously murdered in January last
whilst sitting in his house at night,
were togethei with a negro, undergo
ing a preliminary examination before
a magistrate at Faison's, in Dupjin i
county, upon a charge of being impli
cated in the homicide. It apperrs
that Il-ttch was exceedingly harsh to
his family, frtqueutly beatiug them
severely. O l the d y of the m lrder
he had administered a terriole flog
ging to his wife, and had shut her up
in a room declaring that he would
llog her again next day. That night
three guns were almost simultaneously
discharged at him, wounding him so
that ho died in a few dtys. His life
h id been insured in the North Carolina
Home Comp.iny for &1,500. The
Compauy refused to pty the amount
of the policy on the ground that
Hatch's death was brought about by
the. children who were its benefiearies.
Two detectives, Cameron and Mirtiu,
were set to wort to terret out tlie
matter. Tney shaddowed a uou-in-law
of Hatch named Weeks, who to
clear himself assisted in detecting the
real perpetrators of the crime. Sus
picion fell on two of Hatoh's own
sons, one about 17 aud the other 10 or
1J years old, a young daughter, and
the negro above alluded to. They
were arrestad and taken before a
justice of the peace last Saturday.
The examination was adjourned to
yeste.dav to allow Mr. Granger, of

Opening Ceremonies of tlie Urand
From Our Secular Correspondent
PniiiADEPHiA, May 10th, 1876.
The weather during the two or three
days preceding the opening of the
Grand Centennial Exhibition was not
scch as to encourage visitors from the
neighboring cities aud States to come
on for the occasion. The hot an 1
sultry weather of las': week was fol
lowed by a cold disagreeable rain,
wnich was, perhaps, appropriate to the
occasion, inasmuch as it put the prin
cipal thoroughfares as wll as the by
ways of the city in a state which, bo
far as slush is concerned, served to re
mind of the mud-pikes of "the early
days of the r. public," but which was
ueveitheless not duly appreciated by
the numerous visitors who had already
arrived, nor by those who were en
route from more distant places. 'And
if the stieets of the city were iu such
n condition as to be almost impassable,
how, then, could tho newly iaid out
aud poorly and but half paved walks
in the Centennial grounds be expected
to sustain the pressure of such a throng
of visitors as was already in attendance
in spite of all obstacles?
Yesterday the lain was almost in
cessaut, yet every train that arrived
i l the city brought buudreds of of
ficials and others to whom tiie mvita
tiou of the Centennial Commission had
been extended, to be present at the
opening ceremonies. The President
with family aud the cabinet arrived in
a special train at noon, and the same
train brought the Emperor of Brazil
and suite, who occupied a special car. j
During the day the various military or j
gamzat'ons of the country continued to '
arrive most of them presenting a be-
draggled appearance in spite of brass i
bands and new uniforms. The large j
up town hotels having been already
for several days taxed to their utmost
capacity, it was, during the day and
evening a not unfrequent sight to see
newcomers ladies as well us gentle-
men wading through the streets in
the drizzling rain, iu quest of accom
modations. Far above the multitude,
from every top-story window, the star
spangled banner was making an unsuc
cessful effort to wave them welcome;
but after a while even thj flags gave it
up as a "bad job," and curled them
selves up like other wet linen.
This morning we were awakened by
the chime of the old liberty bell, which
in accordance with a proclamation
issued by the Mayor of the city, was
rung for half an hour at sunrise. It
wai expected that it would be accom
panied by all the church bells of the
city but it was not, aud after it had
ceased ringing the city relapsed once
more into silence. But this did not
last long. Soon the clatter of horses'
hoof was heard upon the principal
streets; the cavalry was turning out.
Presently the infantry, and various
civil organizations were heard parad
ing; brass bands were making the
morning air lively with music. The
grand celebration had commenced!
A peep out of the window revealed
the rather unpleasant fact that t-ie
weather was apparently threatening.
The sky, however, was not obscured
by clouds but was almost totally hid
den by tbe millions of flags, which
were floating in all directions. As
eariy in the morning as six o'clock,
every conveyance tunning toward the
Centennial was unpleasantly crowded,
while those running in other direc
tions were proportionately empty. By
seven o'clock the grounds were begin-
-ng to fill up; and long before nine
gr.md stand intended for invited
KUtts was crowded, and the aids upon
w,1o-i it devolved to keep order could
withfj,e utmost difficulty keep the
surgii- crowd within bounds. At forty
ininuteipast nine the President with
party ajj,sared upon the platform, their
coming being signalled by a prolonged
cheeiins. They were received by
Gen. Hawley, President of the Centen
nial Comnisiion, wiio conducted them
to the seits se-, -i.le for their use. t- -10
minutes aftb- lOo'clock, Gen. Hav
ley appeared up,u the speaker's stand
aud, uy tne wav.,g 0f a wuuo silk
handkerchief, announced the opening
of the ceremonies. The araud or
chestra of 250 perfomers, under the
direction of Theodore'fhomas, imme
diately commenced lerformiug the
national airs of all nations, commenc
ing with tho WashingtonMarch, which
formed the first part jf the pro
gramme. At half past ten ds Majesty,
the Emperor of Brazil, mate his ap
pearance, followed by his staff and
various members of foreign ltgations.
Shortly after his arrival the weLknown
sound of Hail Oolumbia, the st of
the national airs, broke upon tht mul
titude, who answered by three tre
mendous chers. By this time iv is
estimated that between 80,000 and
100,000 people were upon the grcnndi.
With the list strain of the music.
Gen. Hawley reappeared upon the
staud, formally introducing the Presi
dent of the United States. The Grand
Inauguration March, composed for the
occasion by Kichard Wagner, the
greatest of living composers (for which
tie received the sum.ot'.$5,0(!0 from the
Women's Ceuteuuial Committer) then
commenced, but unfortunately the
rustle and hum of voices was so great
that but little of the music could be
Prayer, by the lit. Rev. Bishop
Simpson, followed next, it being sue
ceeded by the hymu by John Green
leaf Whittier, sung by a chorus of 0i)0
voices, accompanied by the Grand Or
chestra and the organ in the Main
Buiidiug. Th ; buildings were then
formally presented to the Centennial
Commission by John Welsh, Chairman
of the Centennial Board of Finance,
and then followed th grandest and
most impressive part of ti e ceremo
nies, namely, the Grand Cautata, writ
ten by SiJney Lauier of Geargia, to
music by Dudley Buck of Connecticut,
the basso solo being performed by
Myron W. Whitney of Boston Words
cannot describe the effect of this
grand masterwork. The multitude
which had heretofore been noisy and
demonstrative.gradually subsided inte
a silence which was most impressive
and made it possible to hear every
note of the magnificent music. When
Whitney performed his solo in his
clear, deep, powerful voice, one might
have heard a pin fall, und the momeut
the last s iund escaped his lips a tre
meudrous applause burst from the
audience, never ceasing until he re
peated his part.
Wheu the sounds of the cantata had
died away President Hawley arose and
presented the exhibition to the Presi
dent of the United States, who made
a short address, formally declaring
the exlribition to be open to
the world. General Hawley then
gave the signal for ucfurliug the
flag upon the Main Exhibition 13 aim
ing, which was done amidst the peal
iDg of cannon, chiming of bells,
Hallelujah chprus accompanied by
mnsic of orchestra and organ, and
oheering of over a hundred thousand
representatives of all countries of the
globe, it exactly 12 o'clock.
Au immense procession of all con
nected with the exhibition, represen -t
itivea of - foreign nations, military
tLd other, was not formed, which,
preceded by the President, passed
thrcngh the Main Building into Ma
chinery Hall where the Corliss Engine
was put in motion by Presidnnt Grant,
assisted by Geo. H. Corliss. This
being tbe last part of the programme
no further formal order of procession
was maintained, and the crowd wa?
soon dispersed all over the buildings
and grounds, viewing with evident
satisfaction the various exhibits. Tho
President with party adjourned to the
Judges' pavillion, in the great hall of
which a reception was heid, ending
the formal festivities of the day.
Tbe Grand Centennial Exposition of
the United States being now thus
opened, your correspondent will here
after be enabled to devote himself to
describing by degrees the numerous
articles of interest now congregated,
as if by a touch of the magic waul,
in the "City of Brotherly Love."

Messrs. Editors : As the time ib
now near at hand when a selection is
to be made by the people of this dis
trict of a representative ot their in
terests in the national council, it may
be proper, as the representative of the
CliHmber of Commerce iu the matter
of the public woi k,thatisnow progress
ing for the improvement of our harbor
and river which we expect to result in
large benefit to the material interests
of our city and district us well as to
the State at large, that I should have
something to say on the subject. In
doing so I disclaim any n teutton of
taking part in general politics. Ow
ing to the position I occupy, I have
rurposely abstained from active poli
tics for several years past, as is well
known, but in the present condition of
affairs, and in what I regard the best
interest of the people of the district
for reasons which I shall preseatly
g've, I beg to suggest, respectfully, to
the convent on, the propriety of re
taining in that position the present
What, may I ask, is the object aud
intention oi" sending a representati ve to
Congress? Surely it cannot and ought
not to be for his own aggrandizement
as a special favorite, or from any pei
soual consideration. He is placed rather
iu the position of a servant or agent
to reflect onr people and conntry, our
needs and wants, aud to perform all
such duties as may present themselves
I for the best interest of the people.
Ti e question is then to ascertain
whether the present incumbent has
oerformtd his duty iu these respects,
or has iu any way, or at any time
neglected, or slighted their interests.
I am able to answer that it has been
my privilege, as it was mv duty, to
spend several weeks together in Wash
ington at every session of Congress
siuce the present iueumbent has been
our Representative, and do not hesi
tate to say from my own knowledge
and observation that he has been zeal
ous, actie, influential and successful
in the interests of his constituents. I
believe he has done all that conld be
done by any one under similar cirenm
etauces, and even more than ought
reasonably to have been expected.
It will be recollected that a mem
ber of Congress must be thoroughly
educated and trained in the routine of
Congressional business before he is
efficient, and tbe longer he remains
the more proficient he becomes. 'Tis
as much a science as any of the arts
or professions.
We have important public works on
baud for improving our harbor, which
have been dragging their slow length
along for the past six years at a cost
of $ti00,000. The work thus far has
been very successful, a great deal has
been accomplished and the culminat
ion has been reached for solving the
problem. The critical moment is upon
us when all the power and influence
which can possibly be brought to bear
upon the subject, is absolutely neces
sary" at Washington to procure the
amount of money required for com
pleting the work. One false step,
one year's suspension of the work
mitrht endanger the whole scheme
and dash it beyond our grasp for the
I next quarter of a century. The
best new man that could be selected
from the district might prove power
less for good in an emergency and thus
endanger it. We cannot afford to take
the risk, the otake is too large and the
hazaid too great.
Under all the circumstances, I beg
to submit to the Convention the pro
priety of considering well these mat
ters before it consents to any change
in our Congressional representation.
I have no axe to grind in the matter,
and no interest whatever greater than
that of other citizens of the district.
The subject rises superior to personal
considerations of interest or politics,
and appeals directly to the common
sense and material interest of the dis
trict aud State at i.irge not to the in
cumbent. Respectfully, &c ,
H. Nutt.

Among the mauy names, presented
through the press, for gubernatorial
honors, no le deserves a more favor
able consideration than the one placed
at the head of this article.
What must be the essential charac
teristics of the man who is honored
with the nomination for Governor by
the Democratic State Convention? In
the first place, he must be a man whose
honesty cannot be doubted or im
pugned. Secondly, he must be a man
who can draw ou the people and poll a
full Democratic vote. No man iu the
State of North Carolina can come
nearer filling this b.ll than Hon. David
S. Reid.

Washington, May 15, Noon. D. J.
Fitzhugh aud his friends have present
ed documents which entirely exculpate
him from the charges of aricu, tbeft,
perjury and blackmailing, but his uu
fortuuate letter still remains, and will
be fatal unless a feeling that the
treachery which prompted lbs publi
cation should uuder no circumstances
be successful saves Fitzhcgh. It is
known that that gentleman could have
prevented its publication for a consid
eration. Riddle has published three columns
iu the Republican. They contain
cumulative evidence that Blaine was
iu Joe Stewart's office strong pre
sumptive evidence that tbe late Mr.
Knowlton, Riddle's son-in-law, wit

Louisiana, passed the House bill ap
propriating 89,000 to pay the expanses

Parties from New York represent the
feeling there regarding tho jetties as
entirely confident. Commodore Garn
son, who has been watching their pro
gress with a view of placing a line of
steamships between New Orleans and
Brazil, has madj no halt la his pre
parations. Dom Pedro has b-iet) approached and
there are assurances that his govern
ment will pay half of what may be nec
essary to carry the mail between the
United States and Brazil and move
ments are afloat to secure a contingent
contract from our government for car
rying the mail.

In the Blaine investigation Harrison
reaffirmed his statements. Bobbins
swore that he heard from some one
that Blaine would be involved by the
investigation; had spoKeuto Mr. Har
rison as reported, aud on that account
the motion to investigate had been
withdrawn and bad never Leen made.
He had since been satisfied that Blaine
had been wrongfully suspected. CjI.
Scott testified th s evening, prefacing
his remarks with the statement thnt the
transaction was equitable and Blaiue
had nothing to do with it.
Major Seelye was before Gen. Gib
son's committee to investigate the fed
eral offices iu Sew Orb.aus aud refused
to testify regarding the pay rolls in the
custom house, as he would . criminate
himself. A resolution was theu adopt
ed by the committee directing the
chairman to apply to the A.foruey
Genera! for a paper like that issued in
the cas of Whitley in the safe burg
lary investigation. Seelye testified
freely on other matters. Amoug other
things he testified that there was a de
falcation of $68,000 in the N-iw Orleans
post office during Lowell's administra
tion. Lowell, his deputy ud cashier
were arrested and held in S10.000 each
but not prosecuted. L)Well turned
over to his bondsmen about $20,000
worth of property, which, however,
was afterwards returned to him. The
defalcation was fl oal'y compromised
for $7,000. Morey told witness that
the easiest way to settle the matter was'
to steal the bond and requested wit
ness to do it. Witness stated that
there were ten bondsmen wuo were
assessed $2 000 each to secure th"
compromise. Seelye testifi s that
Jonett, then commissioner of tbe cir
cuit court, gave him a warrant in
Alorey's district against twenty men.
Morey erased the names of all but
four, whom he instructed Seelye to
take to Monroe and keep in jail until
after the election. A warrant was also
given Seelye for the arrest of Isaac
Newton Glover, whom by Mor.ey's
verbal instructions, given Seelye in the
presence of Jonett, be was to tase into
tbe woods and kill. Glover was cot
arrested, because the writ of habeas
corpus reqnired Seelye to remain with
the other prisoners, which writ he did
not obey. Seelye says he did not intend
to kill Glover, but left Morey under"
tbe impression that 1 he would do it.
The infantry and cavalry in the district
moved by Morey direction. ' He fur-r
nished a list of appointments and or
dered troops' to be at such poiots the
day before he spoke, as be was afraid
to go without such guard. Seelye sold
to Morey his orders and telegrams lor
$200 each, two of which were paid, two
axe over due and oae not yet matured,
lt Jl I
Seelye retained copies. The testimony
was scattering, but witness chums he
has memoranda by which he can, tell
perfectly connected stories- with the
times, places, names aud all details.
Judge Nelson appeared for Morey,
who was also present and wished the
application for a safe guard postponed
until after they had cross-examined
Seelye. Morey stated that the evi
dence given showed that he or Seelye
should go 1 3 the penitentiary; that the
case should be decided by the courts
and if Seelye secured a safeguard,
Morey would be without means of
proving him infamous. Morey will be
heard to-morrow. The committee re
scinded the resolution to leave for New
Orleans to-morrow. Maj. Seelye was
special agent of the Post Office De
partment at Nw Orlans and after
wards deputy United States marshal.
Richmond. May 15 Night In the
Southern Baptist Convention to-day
Prof. N. K. Davis of the University of
Virginia presented a report on tho
Italian mission. The report congrat
ulates the convention on the hopeful
condition of the mission. There are
besides tbe church at Rome eight
stations at other points. The report
woula have the convention instruct
the board of foreicn affira o.i two
points: first, there must be no curtail
ment of the work of the board but an
enlargement aa far as possible; second,
means should be taken at once to
double some cbapel fund by earnest
efforts within aud without the bounds
of the convention. The report ap
proves of the wisdom of the board in
the management of the fund but would
urge that the time has arrived when
the f uud should be completed and the
chapel built.
Rev. Dr. Sampson gave an inter
esting account of the Italian mission.
This report was adopted.

A couple from the country came to
the city yesterday, procured a license
and were married iu due form. - They
left on the afternoon train for home.
They attracted the attention of every
passenger by their lavish display of
affection. The yauLg man kept his
arm tight around the bride's waist, as
if he was afraid she would vanish be
fore he knew it, and she didn't seem
to care if he hujged her right along
for half a day. She was so terribly
homely that everybody wondered how

seemed to think that an explanation
would be in order. He borrowed a
chew of tobacco of a man near tbe

unequal and pernicious legislation; has im
posed unusual taxation and rendered ;l
most burdensome; has cianged growini;
