One Wm. E. Chandler, ef New

with a grievance. People who come
before (be public with political griev
ances, are generally regarded a niiis
ances, but as Mr. Chandler it a member
of the Republican National Committee,
bis gilcvtiire will receive a Utile atten

does not shake the bloody shirt. He
say I the President did shake It during
the campaign, but that he hat now

Chandler heard that Florid had

The other day a correspondent of the

On account of the great wisdom
with which the Ridicalt manage the
finances of the Nation, there are not
more than three or four big failures
every day. In New York, on Wed

culiar in Its character. Some brokers
bad gill-edged securities, but tbey
failed, the Government's wise policy

Saturday alternoon, a colored man,

Paltisoo's place, aud bad been to town,
and ou bis return drove up to the real

addressed him, as we are Informed, in
a pleasant aud familiar way, to which
tbe colored man, who was drinking,
responded with insolence, and in tbe
course of the conversation his language
grew more offensive, nulil Col. Patu
son ordered him to leave tne yard, or
be more respectful. Tbe man replied
be would uot leave the yard, and be
(Col. r.) couldu't make him, and put

after a thorough Investigation, placed

From what we learn It is evident that
C il. Pattiaon in addressing the man
Hamilton, was giving him tome good

was not so received, and words grew

We mentioned some time ago, that a

senting to European capitalist, who
are at a lost to Dud a safe and profitable
method lo Invest hoarded capital, the
advaniages of t'evelnping the agricul
tural and manufacturing opportunities
Of the South and lo show Ihe advan
tages of Immigration. Gen. Gordon
has viowed this proposition with favor,
and will accede, should the rrquisile
authority bo vested in him by the va
rious corporations and municipalities
within tbe 8ouh. .li is well known
that European capitalists have grown
weary of railroad aud mining swin
dles which the North and West bave
been leading them with for yeara, aud
would like to find safer aud more repu
table investments. For some lime tbey
have boen looking towards Ihe
South as olleriug a fair field,
but no advance having been made by
our section, no enterprise was ad
ventured. Gen. Gordon was thought of
as one of tbe most suitable representa
tives to proceed to Europe wilh tbe
purpose of inviting capital ami immi
gration. Ho is capable aud sincere,
and would undoubtedly command
earnest audiences wherever he went.
It would be well, therefore, to en

manner. All seclious of tho South are
Interested in its success, aud would
benefit by ihe consummation. The at

Washington, Dec. 26 The Secretary
of the lreasury bas received tbe report
of Walter Walton, Assistant Secretary
of the Lite Saving Service, wbo was
ordered to Investigate tbe circum

wreck of lbs Huron, with especial
force to Life Saving Station No. 7.
The report contains testimony mostly
of those who witnessed the wreck
from the shore. It is particularly se
vere on a fisherman of Nag's Head,
named vau U aeai, who wat tbe nrst
to see tbe wreck. Al 1 :30 o'clock a.m..
he was ont bunting wild fowl, and saw
the vessel before she struck ; saw ber

only two miles and a half away. He,
howevor, went home and ate bis break

until 7 o'clock. Lieutenant Walton
thinks that had tbe Life Saving Sta

Walton says that such actions as these,
together with tbe inhuman couducl ot

reproach upon the iuhabilautt residing
