On Monday, just in time to find the ho
tels crowded, we arrived in Richmond.
Were lucky enough however to, se
cure a. room, and girted our loins for a
Bmall amount of business for the veteran
Southerner, and a ponderous proportion of
pleasure. We had not visited the city
since 1864, as a soldier boy. Then we
were familiar with every nook and corner.
That was more than ten years ago. Now
we find it rebuilt after the burning in 18G5
with larger and more imposing structures,
four-story brick buildings standing on the
ground of the former piles.
We were piloted and chaperoned by that
clever gentleman, patriotic soldier, and
kindest friend, Mr. N. Frank Young, now
with E. J. Enow & Co., of Baltimore, and
a resident of Fianklin county in our State.
Confidentially the radicals indit' ed Frank
for voting in our last election, whereupon
every prominent lawyer in the Stite assu
red him there was no law for such a pro
ceeding, and volunteered to defend him
without fee or reward.
VIKGINIAS HOSPITALITY, .n ,
. Mr. Young introduced us to that noble
and highly esteemed band of brother s
known as the Baughman Brothers, 1S17
Main St., the largest Stationers and Prin
ters in the ei'y. To say these gentlemen
received us courteously would not half ex
press the kindness 6hown us. They took
us to the prominent business men ie the
city and introduced us, and lu. uL'y made
us a most welcome guest. The unobtru
sive warmth of a Virginian gentleman's
treatment of of a friend is proverbial. So,
we were received by Messrs Grier, Charles
and Melius Baughman and their good peo
ple. ERI.SK TRADE.
Boughman Brother's Store was thronged
with customers, and all busy as bees. Thus
we readily perceived the popularity of the
house. Their very name is a : ytionyin for
honorable dealings. The:r trade is grow

item of paper bags, and we assure our
merchants if they should try this firm and
not be sa.istied, we will, individually, give
bond and good eecuiity, to settle the dif
ference. It was a bad time for drumm'ng for ad
vertisements. Many of the merchants
were absent attending to the details of the
"unveiling" ceremoaies to take place nest
day and on the various Fair Committees.

"Soldiers this is Gen. Jackson's danh

A Woman Chase. A man pursuing a

This chase, however, .has distinctive fea
tures. A white woman ran away from John
Credle, at Washington, and rented a house
in Tarboro, near the classic precincts of
Grab All. Her name was Sally Williams .
Credle sent a warrant from a J. P. to
have her arrested for larceny.
She got away from the Sheriff just over
the bridge at Tarboro, and Credle, who
was in ambush, gave chase. The woman
screamed, and all Grab All hollered.

leaned towards the woman, i She swore she

all sorts of things on a, horse having nqth

cultivated here as anvwhere :

fever tree," (eucalyptis) and its wonderful
medical qualities. It is said that if planted

44 The great European Circus; " under the
management of the Sell Brothers, had for
days and weeks been advertised and posted,
and the town had not, since the departure
of Carrington, of circus renown, known
half the joys which were last Friday pre
sented to its enraptured vision.
A thousand hearts beat happily and. two

and the Steam Piano. - ' :t

great balloon aioetsionit take place .later
in the day,) by the calliope, was truly en
livening, and NaahvHje was, for. the time
being, truly happy. The different sections
of "the gloriful old county of Nash," vied
with each other in furnishing their quota of
the oldest and youngest, prettiest and
Nash never does anything :. in differently,
and from elcctiiig a democratic representa
tive .tquattehdiog :a democratic! circus, it
gqetlUhe whole, porcine.. As to! Its oldest
representative, :let Mst Bennett '. Crumple
speak. He Bays that i his ircmediate
neighborhood, there are at tetet L dozen
octagenarioris, but tMt- 40 yearaitgoi his
father used to spoak of quite a 'number of
these persons as being eighty years old then!
I have to add, and find that 80 plus 40 make
120 "how is this for high" figures. In
credible as this may seem, one or more of
these came to see the circus. I pass over
the youngest they being interesting only
to fond fathers and doting mothers.
And now, what shall I say of the fair ?
Fortunately, little i3 needed, for they ever
speak for themselves. Sjme half dozen
faces were so radiantly fair gt ;the most
confirmed misogynist would Have gazed and
felj hforfsith growing. weak Let one such
but fall under the influence of. either of
these glorious faces, and his cynicism would
be scattered as the frost before the glow of
a generous October sun. And now, Mr.
Editor, a little incident descriptive of the
last class mentioned. Note the following
conversation : 44 How do you do ! how do
you do, Miss Sary "! 44 1 don't bel'eve you
know me," said a hard favored eon of the
soil to a woman just ahead of him. She
turned at this salutation end, gaz:ng at er
friend anzious-for recognition, relieved his
anxiety and his mind truly. 44 Yes I do
aint that you Jesse"2L'J'Yes, this is me,"
quoth he of anciaafc. memories, f Is that
yoar wffe"? slie asked.' The wife in ques
tion 6aw proper to acknowledge the rela
tionship and meekly asked wliy t the query.
44Oh! nothing in particular only you ought
io take a stick and break your husband's
back for being so ugly." Ye Gods ! what
a stunner; perhaps the man could have
smashed a glass house in return. But the
dark and ominous frown which first im
pressed his features gradually relaxed into
an amused smile and a merry twinkle of
the eye, as he cast a last look over , his
shoulder at the retreating form of hi3 plain
spoten triend.-; .., , . . - ?r .
I could not bot speculate on the possibil
ity of ancieut rongs;' novf righted, sor' at
least with" some of t heir noisnanev asisaed
by this terrible shaft. Had Jesse been an
old sweet-heart, who had loved to woo, but
always forgot to wed? If not. whv the
shaft at both man and wife.
As you will have the the circus with you
next week, I will only say that it was good.
Our fiiend W. G. sivs that a circus, like
whisky, is never bad, but eood. better, best.
There are many things which I intended to
say, but my communication has grown fear?
fully long, and you will have to curtail un
sparingly. Nashville is eminently Hibern-
lau, for she has a sepxe-of sous-who are
peculiarly 44 band v tvith. their' ftels, " and
who are likewise vrfttlft a loss to know how
to handle a shelelah.
She sustained her ancient rarlorv on last
Friday by contributing one or more pugil
istic encounters to swell the lonz list of
former exploits in this direction.
Gentlemen of the law : may it not be
that treacherous Cincinnati rve is the cause
of most of these encounters ? What have
you done with all of the 44 good old Nash
brandy, for which tho countv was once
so famous ? I fear me greatly, that, like
the thrifty Dutch farmer, you have sold all
of the best and retained only for home use
that which is of inferior quality. When
Lucien opens, if he will only keepMartelle
and Heidsick and old Nash brandy to sell
them at 10 cents a glass, he will soon have
no competitors, and some one will be ruined.
Capt. Joe lck is responsible for the fol
lowing : During the Convention campaign

Capt. S. T. W., wil'ing and anxious to im
part information, both political and other
wise, is said to have tendeied his services
to teach a fair pupil the multiplication ta
ble, one question was asked, and all far
ther proceedings were "tabled," and now
the Capt. teaches multiplication no more.
Our former townsman,'-Dr. Robt. Sills,
is making f or himself hosts "of friends in
and around Nashville, aiiid - when, there a
few days since, I heard the giucere wish
expressed, more than'oDce, that a certain
fair lady would not heed what Mr. J. of
