The roll-call showed Connecticut, Kentucky, Michigan, Xcvada, Xew Mexico, Utah and Wyoming unrepresented. Chas. J. Canda, of Xew York, was re-elected Treasurer. Edward Dickinson, of Xew York, was reappointed official stenographer. TI.AN OF THE CAM PAIGX. Mr. Dawson, of South Carolina, presented tho report of the commit tee on a plan of tho campaign. This report led to a long discussion. It recommended, among other things, that .the Chairman of State com mittees shall be culled on from time to time for a report ef tho condition of affairs in their States. The great object aimed at is tho systematic method of btalningeorrcet informa tion. It was recomended. further, that the Xational Cummitteo and Congressional Committee of which Senator Jlornian is Chairman, should act in thorough accord. The report was adopted. It was decided that proxies shall be approved by the Chairman and Secretary, subject to confirmation by the committee. It was agreed that all futuro meetings of the Na tional and Executive Commitecs shall be called by the Chairman, duo notification to be given to members. Further lime for the Committeo on Headquarters to report was grant ed. THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. The Chairman (Mr. Barbour) an nounced tho Executive Committeo as follows: Win. II.

The Executive Committeo will meet at tho Fifth Avenue Hotel, Xew York, on Thursday. Governor Cleveland was at the executive chamber at tho usual hour this morning, and received a large number of callers lie went to the Executive Mansion 'shortly after noon to prepare fer the Xotification Committee. THE XOTI VI CATION. At o : GO o'clock tho Albany phal anx, headed by a brass baud, march ed to tho Delevan House to escort tho Notification Committee to the Executive Mansion. They heeded neither wind, rain nor muddy streets. J heir white plug hats, tho symbol of tho club, w ere unprotect ed by umbrellas. Tho committee men, however, were not so courage ous, lueywero willing mat me phalanx men should trudgo through tho mud, but they preferred riding behind in carriages. A crowd fol lowed with umbrellas overhead. When tho manbiou was reached tho committee were ushered into the west parlor. No attempt at decora tion had been made. All thcro was beond the ordinary appointments was a bank ef choice flowers on the mautlciiece. Tho gloomy da ren dered it necessary to light tho chau delier and side brackets. Tho par or was uucomfertably crowded. At each side of the fire-placo wero the ladies of tho household, Mrs. Hoyt and Miss Cleveland, tho Governor's eistors ; tho Misses Hastings, his nieces; Mrs. Falsom, wife of his former law partner, aud daughter, and Mrs. Hament, wife of the Gov- ruor Secretary. All were hand comely attired. Among the throng of statesmen were Samuel J. Ban- dall, Gov. Waller, of Connecticut; Senater Bansom, of Xorth Carolina; Hon. Perry Belmont; Senator Jj- W V I 1 tl Das, oi J,ouisinna ; is. is. rmaiiey, oi Vermont; Senator Murphy, of New lerk; S. Corning Judd, of Illinois; Senator Gorman of Maryland ; Hon. Lrasius Corning, Judge Amsas Barker, Hon. Win. F. Vilas, of Wis- consm, anu others. mio me com mittee awaited the Governors ap- pearanco the bands eutside played patriotic airs. Gov. Cleveland came nto the room at 1 o'clock. Ho was dressed as usual in a black frock coat, with high standing white col- ar and broad black neck tie. Jlo stood with his back to tho mantles piece, facing his visitors. Xo pre- iminarv fuss was made. Mr. Y m. Vilas, I'ermanent Chairman of the Democratic Convention, stepped a acc or two in advanco of his lol- owers and read the following : chairman vilas address. 'Guover Cleveland, Governor ov the State of Xew York These gentlemen, my associates hero pro- 6cnt, whoso voice I am honored with authority to utter, are a com mittee appointed by the National Democratic Convention which re cently assembled in ' Chicago, ad charged with the grateful duty of acquainting you olliciallj- and in that solemn and cermonious manner which tho dignity and importance of tho communication demand with the interesting results of tho delib erations already known to you through the ordinary channels of news. 'Sir, that august bodv, convened by direct delegation from tho Dem ocratic pcoplo of tho several States and Territories ot the IJepuDlic, ana deliberating under the witness of tho greatest assemblage of freemen ever gathered to such a conference, in preparation for tho election which the Constitution imposes upon them to mako during tho current year, havo nominated you to tho people of these United States to be their President for tho next ensuing term of that great office, and with grave consideration of its exalted respon sibilities, havo confidently invoked their suffrages to invest you with its functions. Through this com mittee tho Convention's high re quest is delivered that you accept that candidacy. This choice tar ries with it profound personal ro- epect and admiration, but it has been in no manner the fruit of these sentiments. Tho National Democ racy eek a President not in com nliment for what the man is or re ward for what ho has done, but in a iust expectation f what he will accomplish as tho. true servant of a free neorde fit for their lofty trust. Always of momentous consequence they conceive tho public exigency to be now of transcendant impor tance: that a laborious reform in administration as well as legislation is imperatively necessary to the prosperity and honor of the Bepub lie, and a competent Chief Magis trate must be of unusual temper and power. "I hey havo observed with pleas ure your execution ot tho puonc a . 1 trusts 3 0U havo held, especially oi that with which you are now so honorably invested. . They place their reliance for the usefulness of th services they expect to exact for the benefit of tho Nation upon the evidence derived from tho services you havo performed for the State of Xew lork. I hey invito the elec tors to such proofs ef character and comnctcnco to mstify their confi dence that in the National, as here tofore in tho State, tho public busi ncss will bo administered with com- nion sense, intelligence and ability, vi tli Kinrle-liearted honesty and fi dclity, and with a resolute and dars ing fearlessness which' no faction, no combination, no power of wealth, no mistaken clamor can dismay or qualify. Invoking the benediction of tho 1'ivino teacher ot men. we extend from tho sovereiirn of this Xation His words in commendation and ratification of our choice: 'Well done, thou good and laithlul sen rant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things.' "In further fulfillnient of our duty tho Secretary will now prosent the written communication signed by the committee. 1 he earnest, eloquent manner in which Mr. Vilas spoko called forth applause at the end of his address . THE COMMITTEE'S ADDRESS. Mr. X. M. Bell then road the committeo's address as follows: "Sir 1 a . a .1-. in accordance witu a custom oeni ting tho naturo of the communica tion, the undersigned, representing tho several States and Territories of the Union, were appointed a com mittee by tho National Democratic Convention which assembled at Chicaro on the 8th of tho current month to perform the pleasant of fice, wfiich by this means we have tho honor to execute of informing you of yeur nomination as the can didate of the Democratic party in tho coming election for the office of President of tho United States. A declaration of the principles upon which tha Democracy go before the pcoplo with the hope of establishing and maintaining them in tho Gov ernment, was made in tho conven tion, and an engrossed copy thereof is submitted in connection with this communication for your considera tion. We trust tho approval of your judgment will follow on ex amination of this expression of opin ion and policy, and upon the politi cal controversy now made up we invite your acceptance of the exalt ed leadership to which you havo been chosen. "The election of a President is an event of tho utmost importance to the pcoplo of America. Prosperity, growth, happiness, peace and liber ty even may depend upon its wis ordering, lour unanimous nomi nation is proof that the Democracy believe 3-our election will most con tribute to securo these objects. We assure j-ou that in the anxious re sponsibilities yon must assume as a candidate 3'ou will have the steads fast and cordiai support of the friends of tho cause -you well repre sent, and in the execution of the duties of the high office which we confidently expect from the wisdom of tho Nation to bo conferred upon you, you may surely rely for ap- E roving aid upon tho patriotism, onor and intelligence of this freo people." Every ono was intent on Cleve land's reply. In an easy, flowing, but earnest manner, the Governor said: Ma. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Committee Your formal announcement does not, of course, convey to me the first information of the result of the convention lates ly held by the Democracy of the Nation, aad yet when, as I listen to your message, I see about mo rep resentatives from all parts of the land of tho great party, which claiming to bo the party of the peo ple, asks them to entrust to it the administration of tho Government, and when I consider, under tho inn fluenco of the 6tern reality which present surroundings create, that I have been chosen to represent the plans, purposes and tho policy of the Democratic party, I am profoundly impressed by the solemnity of the occasion and by the responsibility of my position. Though I grateful ly appreciate it, I do not at this mo ment congratulate mj-self for the distinguished honor which has been conferred upon me, because my mind is fill of an anxious desire to Ecrform well tho part which has een assigned to rae. Nor do I at this .moment forget that the rights and interests of moro than 50,000, 000 of my fellow-citizens aro involv ed in our efforts to gain Democratic supremacy. This reflection pro sents to my mind the consideration which moro than all others gives to the action of my party, in conven tion assembled, its most sober and serious aspect. "Tho party and its rcpresenta tives which ask to be entrusted at tbo hands of tho people with the keeping of all that concerns their welfare and their safety, should only ask it with full appreciation of the sacredncss of tho trust and with a firm resolve to administer faithfully and well. Applause. 1 am a Democrat because I believe that this truth lies at tho foundation of the Democracy. Loud applause. I havo kept the faith because I be lieved, if rightly and fairly admin istered and applied, Democratic doc trines and measures will insure the happiness, contentment and pros perity f tho people. Applause.J "If in the contest upon which we now enter we steadfastly hold to the underlying principles of pure party creed and at all times keep in view tho people's good, we shall be strong because we are true to ourselves, and because tho plain and indo Eendent voters of the land will seek y their votes to compass their re lease from party tyranny where there should be submission to the popular will and their protection from party corruption ; where there should be deyotion to the people s nterests. fAppIause and eries of goon ; good. J ".these thoughts lend a consecra tion to our cause, and we 2:0 forth not merely to gain a partisan ad vantage, but pledged to give to those who trust us the utmost beno fit of a pure and honest administras tion of National afiairs. Applause.J Xo higher purpose or motive can stimulato us to supreme . effort or urge us to continuous and earnest labor and effective party o tion. Let us not fail in this and wo may confidently hope to reap the full reward of patriotic services well performed. Applause. "1 I have thus called to mind some simple truths, and, tnto thoughts though they aro, it seems to me we do well to dwell upon them at this time 'I shall soon, I hope, signify in tho usual formal manner my accept anceoftbo nomination which has been tendered to me. la tho mean time I gladly greet you all as co workers in a noble cause." Loud applause and cries of "Good, good." There was a session of handsghak ing at the closo of the Governor's speech. Then the sliding doors were thrown open, revealing a well spread table in tho back parlor. A hearty welcome was given to all to a refresh themselves, an invitation which was generally accepted. 1 :30 farewells and Gods speeds were said and the Govornor was left aloue with his household. . The Notifica tion Committee were subsequently entertained by the Fort Orange Club. Invitations have been extended to the members of tho Democratic National and Notification Commit tees, now in Albany, to be present at the Cleveland and Hendnck's ratifi cation meeting at Chickering Hall tomorrow. Mr. Vilas, of Wisconsin; Senator Jones, of Louisiana, and Gov. Waller of Connecticut, are ex pected to speak at the meeting. COST OF THE EXPEDITION ATJOUT $700,000 EXPENDED TO RESCUE THE OREELT PARTY. Washington, July 2S. The total expense ef the Grcely relief expedU tion is estimated by the Xavy De- partmcnt at about 8700,000. The original estimate was $500,000. Of the amount expended 8137,553 was for the purchase and repair of tho 6teamer Bear, $171,105 for the purchase and repair of the Thetis, 5250,000 for supplies, 325,000 for, bringing the vessels to New York. 25,000 for instruments to be used in making observations, S15.1C5 for the repairs made to tho Alert, $21,- 000 for the transport Loch Garry, and $15,000 for coal. It is believed that in disposing of tho vessels tho Government will securo an amount about equal to tho sum paid for them. A largo quantity of the pro visions is suitable for navy use, and will bo turned over to tho service. Tho contract for the Loch Garry, now in port in New York, which was obtained from English parties, expires Aug. 5. Capt. Schley has informed tho department that a Board of Survey examined her at St. Johns and found her compara tively uninjured. There was no representative of the owners of the vessel on tlio Board, however, and a new Board will make an exami nation at the New York dock. GenV Hazen has gone to Ports mouth to receive the Greely party. He will represent Secretary Lincoln, if the latfer should determine not to go. Commander Schley wrote to the Secretary of the Navy last week that in prosecuting the search for Greely 's party it was often necessa ry, in order to gain open ice, so as to advance with as little delay as possible, to tako greater 'ffsks than aro ordinarily justifiable, as the wa ters wero mainly unknown, iinper- foctly surveyed, and their dangers untharted, and to a great extent covered by ice. He says that whilo great prudence was exercised, both the Thetis and tho Bear grounded two or three times, but without so rious injury. He says ho purpose ly avoided reference to these accU dents in his telegraphic report for fear of causing uneasiness, but that in his final report ho will give a statement of tho circumstances of each grounding and of the injuries sustained. Tho rapidity and suc cess of the voyage, ho 6ays, show that the injury to tho ships was not severe. Secretary Chandler to-day tele graphod from Portsmouth to Hear Admiral Nichols that there will bo a naval reception to the Arctic re lief ships at that place on Saturday next. There will also be a city and State reception on Monday. The Secretary directed that the fact bo communicated to all Cabinet Minis ters, the Admiral and Vice-Admiral of tho navy, and the Lieutenant- General of the army, and asked that they be requested to bo present on ono or both days. Perfect valor consists in doing without witnesses all wo should be capablo of doing before the world. God looks not to see if hands aro full; ho looks to peo if they .are clean, J A JAUNT TO KING'S MOUNTAIN, N. C. To tha Editor of Tha Morris town Oaantte : On the 8th of July, the writer, accompanied by an angel, whose sweet, cheerful face and form, bow since she left, is ever flitting be fore his mind and in vision appear ing in his dreams, left Morristown on a hurried business trip to Gas ton county, N. C, adjoining his old homo, Cleveland county, whose cap ital, Shelby, his abode since the war, until he came to this place about nineteen months ago, he had not time to visit, though within 12 or 15 miles of it. Passing up the romantic gorge of the French Broad, whose scenery, wildly grand and beautiful, was greatly ad mired and enjoyed, from Warm Springs to Asheville, where we hur riedly saw safely seated in a hack and bade adieu, with a kiss, said precious "gem of purest ray serene," we sped on over, or rather through the Blue Bidge, whose lofty peaks and dark, deep ravines arose grand ly far above and sank gloomily deep below us, as overy few moments shooting through dark, dripping tunnels, the train, like a faithful, well-trained hound upon the track of the wily fox, constantly winding and bending itself about, crossing and rccrossing repeatedly its own line of descent, until we suddenly fetch up at the third story of Bound Knob hotel about sun-down, where we stop for supper. We shall not attempt a description of the scenery r the wonderful objects of special interest horeabout. They -must be seen to be conceived of and appre ciated. It is worth a trip half around the world to spend an hour near Bound Knob. Frank lieslie s Illustrated Newspaper, in its midsummer num ber in an article on the places of in terest in the United States, says: At Hound Knob the most pictures- nr it 1 que point on tne western ioriu Carolina railroad, the company has erected a fine hotel, from the bal conies of which a view ef the moun tains is perfect. At this point is the wouderful fountain for which is claimed tho strongest pressure of any fountain in the world, and which throws a jet 208 leet high. It is at this point also where the most wonderful engineering feat has been accomplished. In one view, the track is plainly visible six times as it winds around the spur and up tho steep slopes, now and then cross the little stream over a higt bridge or trestle, and in doing so presenting many charming views of valley and mountain, in contem plating this work and scenery, ad miration is divided between the nat ural sconcry and the indomitable human energy required to penetrate these strongholds. Colonel A. Is, Andrews, the president of the road, gives it his constant attention, aid ed by Major J. VV. Wilson, chief en gineer, who through many discour agements and obstacles has perse vered from the beginning to its completion, and certainly shares with his able assistants the credit of placing before tho world the most wonderful pioce of engineering in America." Uaving learned, between Ashen villo and Bound Knob, through an old acquaintance and friend, Mr. Grant, a pleasant, popular, energetic and thriving drummer for a largo Baltimore house, that several ot our lady acquaintances and others from Shelby and Marion wero on board, we at once became anxious and restless to meet them, which wo did pretty soon, and from there to Ma rion, where we bade them adieu, we certainly had a gay old time and we haven't forgot it yet! Beach ing Hickory, a most pleasant little town at the intersection ol the Chester and Lenoir Narrow Gauge railroad with tho Western North Carolina road, about 11 : 30 p. m.. we stopped over till 8 a. m. the next . 1 1 IK ..1 -v morning, wnen we ieit on ins xars row Gauge which skips along as rapidly and glibly as its "big bud," on which wo had just rid for Dal las, tho capital of Gaston, one of the richest and most prosperous eouns ties in the State. Dallas is a very pleasant, thrifty little town, of some 500 inhabitants some of tho kind est and most pleasant people we ever met. We stopped with Uriah Matthews, Esq., formerly from this section Hawkins county, H we mistake not who went there, so he told us, about tho close of tho war, without a dollar. He now oM'ns good property, a large hotol (whieh his good wife knows exactly how to run), a large store and other prop erty, lie is a stanch democrat as r . .... . i. well, and has tho respect and conh dence of every one. He made many inquiries about his old time friends and acquaintances, a number of whom are in this count-, while oth ers, of whom we havo. heard, have since passed over the river, few da3-s' stay at his house with his pleasant guests was onjoy ed by us very much. Here too wo met several brother lawyers and others whose favors and kindnesses we highly appreciate. From Dallas we went up tno Air-ijino auoui o miles to Old Furnace (tho old fur nace itself, where, 'tis said, cannon balls were moulded during the Rev olutionary war, many of which are often yet found lying around, still rears its huge, vine-covered, snaky form 0ut of a gloomy swamp, near which mountains of old cinder are piled about) and the celebrated Ore Banks, which have "recently been purchased by a. wealth- Northern company from Pittsburg, Pa. They havo erected new and improved machinery for raising the ore, some 250.000 or 300.000 - tons of which Pqv? awaj puipnent to tuejr frorkg in Pennsylvania. Though work has been suspended for several months past, as tho company are considering the question of erecting works on tho property itself, in or der to . save the immense cost of shipping. This ore is of the very best quality such as steel is made of at once. and absolutely inex haustible, and if works are erected on tho premises it will greatly re vive business and add much wealth to that section of country. Near and around this property live the parties with whom our business called us, all well-to-de, thrifty farmers, with whom we spent 4 or 5 days most pleasantly, drinking cider and no, we didn't mean it ! .Jake, Ben, Meek, Will and Uncle Giles, excuse us r We deny it! Iheres not a word of truth in it ! From here, through the kindness of friend B., the preacher (?), who came around with bis superb turn out, wo went over (about G miles) to the celebrated All Healing Springs, learning that a very dear friend, whom wo had not seen fur years, and who we were cxceeding- y anxious to meet, was there but upon reaching the Springs we found she had left a .few days before. Then our crest fell but again re vived, whon we reflected that wo had done the best we could and couldn't help it especially when we sat down to a table, surrounded with pleasant company, several friends of tho friend we wont to soe, and groaning with the best of tho land. These springs and hotel are tho property of the Garrett Broth ers, of King's Mountain, whose means, push, and foresight have done much to build up that section. And we are indeed very sorry to know, that since wo were there tho large hotel and the adjoining beau tiful dwelling of Dr. Garrett have been destroyed by fire. The hotel is, or was, in charge of a most ex cellent gentleman, Mr. A. Cozzons, a Northern man, as lessee and pro prietor. The buildings were of wood, but very neat and handily arranged, and were partially cover ed by insurance. From the Springs we went to the cit3of King's Moun tain, where we met many friends, among them three bully littlo boys nephews with whom we very much regretted to so hurriedly part, as since" their father's death in '75, we have felt great solicitude for them. But through the kindness of two of tho best men on earth they aro being well educated, which is lar better than riches. l?rom King's Mountain we ran up to Gas tonia, the most thriving and pleas ant little town of all. Here we met quite a number of old friends among them Dr. A., the genial and highly respected husband of our old sweetheart, whom also, lor -'old times sake," we would have been pleased to have met, but didn't, Hero, too, our friends Profs. John B. Blanton and L. E. Quinn (tho former of whom, 6i'nce wo last met, has taken to himself a lovely, beau tiful and intelligent "better-half") formerly of Shelby, with whom we, though younger, havo seen gay old times, are carrying on a thnv ing high school, whieh is well sup ported by tho town and country. They aro both very popular and thoroughjy equipped for tho busi ness and in every respect worthy, and we bespeak for them a bright future. Here, also, other friends, the Long Brothers, formerly of Shelby, are doing a thriving busi ness in tin and stoves, and et an other, Mr. Falls, formerly of King's Mountain, who now runs the lead ing hotel, where the wearv can rest from their labors and feod on the fat of the land. And, finally, this is tho homo of Hon. D. A. Jenkins, ex-Bcpublicari Treasurer of North Carolina, a wealthy, 'influential and honored citizen, who positively- refuses to support the mongrel-coalition State ticket, foistered upon his party, as ho claims (and justly), by a combi- nation ef the worst and weakest ele ments of both parties. The Colonol is right, for we know that tho heav iest weight the Democrats have had to carry for years has been the Democratic - Liberal - Bepublican -Greely-coalition movement of '72. Other North Carolina Bepublicans of distinction such as Hons. W. A. Smith, Bepublican candidate for Lieutenant-Governor in 76, W . P. Bynum, ex-Judge of the Supreme Court, V. S. Lusk, ex-U. S. District Attorney, and many others tkink liko him and refuse to support the ticket. Col. Jenkins is a well read, very intelligent and interesting talk- r, and can interest a crowd lor hours. Both Bepublicans and Dem: ocrats have the greatest respect for him. Upon boarding the train at Dais las to return home, we met with quite a number of other old friends, Methodist preachers and others, on their way to Conference at Hickory. To mention each would consume too raueh space suffice it, therefore, to say, that we enj03'el meeting them all very much (beg pardon for , wak ing up the Bev. Dr. D. at Hickory at the late hour of midnight, which wejust had to do, as we felt we were bound to see him, and couldn't miss the next train either), and hope to meet them all again in the sweet by and by. Wo were very sorry, owing to the fact that we passed Asheville on our way back one day sooner than we had expected, that we failed to meet our friends, who so kindly came to tho depot the next day, with dain ties, in tho way of delicious edibles and precious greetings, to meet us. Sorry we couldn't stop but such is fate. Tho country through which we Eassed is prosperous. Good schcfol ouses, churches, society halls, &c, are prominent in every hamlet Tho farmers havo been blessed with un usually good harvests, and the pros pects for abundant yield of com, cotton, tobacco, &c, makes them hopeful, jubilant, happ' and thankful, - The Old North State is all right for Cleveland and Hendricks, Scales and the entire Democratic State ticket. w. c. 11. BLAlNJc'S UNPOPULARITY. Cheshire (X. H.) Republican. Tho bragand bluster f the Blaino journals, in regard to Mr. Blaine's tremendous popularity in all sections of the country, will not deseive asy one. Iho silly nonsense of his dod- ularitv with the Irish, and thn f.inl. ish talk about Democrats voting for him, and that he is sure to carry several southern states that no othor Bepublicati could carr-, it is liko the boy's whistling gointr throueh the woods, to deep up his courago. Tho boasting editors f these jour nals, aro not ignorant of facts which everybody understands, that there never was a candidate put in no mination soun popular as Mr. Blaino. Never before in his history of the country, has a Presidential candiw date's character and morality been called in question by his own party. 1 .1 1 . . ...very inuepcnueiit, several reli. gious, and a large number of Repub lican journals, some of which are the most influential in tho country, aro arra3'od against Mr. Blaine. '1 nou sands of Bepnblicans aro opposed to him and will work and vote to dcx feat his election. Whon the candi date put in nomination isso unpop ular that a large number of Bepub licans refuse to support the neminn ation, on what ground can it be claimed that a single Democrat will support Mr. Blaine? Tho Bepubli cans say that large numbers of Irish Democrats will voto for Blaiao, and claim that "it is an undisputed fact that the Irish population of this country regard Mr. Blaino with great favor, and their gratitude for the services he has performed for their - countrymen is now manifest in their very general approval of his nomination." Fudgo! Tho Irish, they say, will vote for Blaine be cause ho is of Irish descent and was educated as a catholic and embraced that religion. That is so, but whon be went to Mai no to reside, he found that the religion of his fathers was unpopular in that region and ho re nounced the Catholic religion and embraced the Protestant instead. These facts would seem to indicate plain'y, that instead of Blaino's re ceiving an' support from this clase of voters be would be discarded by every Irish Catholic voter in the country. AT ONLY EIGHT PACES. TWO AGED CHURCH MEMBERS SUR PRISED AT DAYBREAK READY TO BEGIN FIRING. Newbern, N. C.,July 28. - Bobert Floor and Stiles Sanders, two white haired farmers, aged respectively 7 and 77, had harsh words a few days ago about their crops. They had boen warm friends, and wero mem bers of the same church. The two together have thirty.nino descend ants. They parted bitter enemies, but their advanced ages and recog nized pacific natures led their friends t J believe that their ill feeling would end in words merely. This morn ing Thomas Stanley, a young man of this plaeo, happening to be up at daybreak, was astonished at seeing tho two old men armed to the teeth, and standing facingeach other ready to begin a deadly duel. At the risk of his life, and as their weapons wero raised, he, rushed between them. One of them waived him off, but ho managed to srize Sanders's pistol. Some passers-by then came to his assistance, and the two old men wero disarmed. Had Mr. Stanley been two minutes later the men would havo begun firing. They woro only eight paces apart. This is the first instance in the history of the eode where two such old men have resorted to it to settle .their .disputes. Fears aro entertained that the grandsons of the wouldbe duelists will take up tho dispute and pursue it to a bloody termination. THE ATTACKS ON CLEVELAND. New York, July 29. Several prominent Bepublicans stated here yesterday that the publication of the scandalous storios about Gov. Cleveland was not countenanced by them, and that the Bepublican Na tional Committeo did not propose to raise such issues in this campairn. I Ihs also stated that definite orders wero received hero from islam yesterday to the effect that all At tacks of this kind on Mr. Cleveland must be discontinued. Prominent Democrats laugh at what they de signate as Blaine's ' latest dodge. I hey say that he and the Bepubh- can .National committee kept still while these attacks wore being made, and new that all the injury has been done which tbo lies could accomplish, he tries to dodge fey is- ung this order. Ihey alio dis close that by adopting this course he hopes to protect himself from be ing retaliated upon in the samo way, but with a much worse and truer story. 1 There is good authority lorstat- . . 1 t 1 T t a ing that, while the isiaine managers propose not to countenance those scandalous attacks on Cleveland,yet in an undorbandedwray they are do ing all irr their power to aid their circulation. Several cartoons repre senting him ' in accordance with these stories aro being prepared un der direction of the lilaine bosses, and will be paid for. with Bepublican money and surreptitiously issued, it is said, within ten days.. ASSIGNMENT, Detroit, July 29. The O'Bonum Wire Works Company, one of the most extensive plants of ornamental iron and wire works in this country has made an assignment. 1 his ac tion was precipitated by some of the stockholders who became frightoned and levied an attachment on tho popcrty to secure advances made by them; uo statement has yet been made public.
