The niHcottifortn of Travel Across the Pond The Oallerles of Ant werp, ami the Ileautirul city of iruHHelM On the Continent. IIKI'SSKI.S, Belgium, AllgllSt 2. 1 HK!. Uditor Citizen: On Inst evening vour correspondent lclt tiresome Loudon where a week of continual sighlscciin! had quite exhausted his powi-rs, mental and physieal, and taking train for Har wich, there hoarded a small steamer which landed us at Antwcrpat lOo'clock this morning. There are doubtless many tilings in liuropc which arc lietter done than in America, notahlv the science ol tlcccin travelers by means of fees and extra charges, which is certainly worked up to a degree ol perfection that entitles it to lie classed among the line arts. It is rather annoying when von sit down t tahle d'hote dinner, which prnlcsscs to he served lor live shillings, to lind yourself charged a sixpence extra for ,'ittcudnncc iiincpcncc for a cup of coffee and three pence for ice, which two last items you may nave unwittingly uskco ior. While we feel obliged to acknowledge the sii)crior skill ol our hosts in the de partment referred to above, we must say that in everything that composes true comfort in traveling, America can teach them more than they have learned in all the centuries ol their national existence. Thcv really do not know the meaning of the word "coinlort. 1 lieu-railroad car riages one soon gets accustomed to, and they are not so really objectionable, when occupied by a party of friends, but when crowded with people unacquainted with each other and all inclined to con sidcr anvonc who ventures to begin ti conversation as a burglar or garrotcr in disguise, it is hv no means agreeable, Then, too, the want ol ice water is ter ribly fell by those who have always been accustomed to having it in the greatest abundance. In the railroad carnages there is no provision whatever lor sup plying water, iced or otherwise, and we .can conceive of nothing more distressing than to be obliged to travel all night in one of them. Nor are the discomforts by any means confined to the railroads, but the steam boat accommodations arc quite us unsat isfactory. We have given you some idea of the discomforts attending a trans Atlanlic voyage by a steamer of the State line, and last evening when we found the boat which was to cany a tremendous crowd across the North Sea both small and illy provided with what we arc accustomed to consider the neces sities of traveler's life, ( for instance, not a single chair nor sola provided on deck ) we could not resist the comparison witii our American Fall River line, or Chesa peake Hay boats or many others where every convenience and delight is provided in abundance. Ilefore leaving mention of London we must not fail to chronicle that which most charmed us there, to-wit, a sermon by Canon Farrar. St. Margaret's church was packed full to overllowing last Sun day, but it was our good luck to secure n place where every wonl was audible, and the expressive face and gesture of the earnest sfienker visible. It was strange to hear the comments of all of our party as the service ended. With universal consent the sermon was declared excel lent, and "exactly like that we heard last Sunday at St. "Giles', in Hdinburgh." J'es, we never remember on two succcss iivp .Sundays, in different places and by ,iuiniU'rs of different creeds, to have Jieard discourses so remarkably similar jn tone, idea and in manner of delivery. AH that we had heard and read of Canon J'nrrur was fully realized, and without attempting an epitome of his sermon, we will only say the same spirit of universal love and urging to good works in the most practical and common sense man ner pervaded it, as does all of his writings that we have read. Now for the Continent! Arriving in Antwerp we sjiend a lew hours in visiting fscveral places of interest. The home ami the tomb of the great painter Kuliens, .and several of his most noted pictures. His "Crucifixion" vc thought most pain fully realistic, and yet the fascination was such as kept our eyes fixed upon it. The difference in expression of the two thieves was csiccinlly strong, but we must confess none of his paintings leave with us any sense of enjoyment. All are renditions of such terrible ideas, and in a manner to bring them to your very face. Then to-day we saw one of the martyr dom of a saint whose tongue had been cut out and was being fed to a dog, while the poor victim writhed in an guish, inexpressible by anyone save Ru bens'. Indeed it was enough to keep one awake for a week with the memory. The sccimens of wood carving in all of the churches in beauty far surpassed any thing we ever dreamed possible, and again and again we longed lor you to see it, for in no other way can you enjoy it as we did. It was not only a surprise to us that this art could lie brought to such K'rfectioii, but all the subjects were selected so as to give pleasure and rest to the eye and brain. In line of the galleries we saw numer ous amateur artists copying the paint ings, and among them one man who hail no arms, having been born so maimed, and yet with his toes he was making a very creditable copy of otic-of the liest pictures. It was very curious to seewith what case he could handle, or rather toe, his brushes, ami with what delicacy he could apply his colors. Leaving Antwerp at ! p. in., an hours' ride over a lienutiful agricultural coun try brought us to Brussels. What most pleased us was to sec the wind mills in all directions perforiuii g their part, by mmiping the water for irrigating the lands. This was a picture we noticed as soon as we could see the land this morn ing, and struck us very oddy, as also the fact that we could look across the ham lets and see the sails of vessels going in all directions, looking very much as though sailing on dry land. Brussels, we pronounce after a day's inflection, one of the most licniiliful cities we have ever seen, and in its cleanliness a wonderful rebel alter London. The hotel and restaurants are good, and would not be at all exfiensive were it not for the abominable extras, one of which is lights; and as they charge us two Irancs forty cents each for candles, we only use one, and this accounts for the incoherent manner in which this is written, liecause the room is so dark as to render us un certain whether we are talking in Eng lish or still jablicriiig away at our new idiometl French, as we have liecn doing all day, very much to the amusement of our party. However they may lie amused, it matters not to us, and we find a few words, even of bad French, a great help, relieving us of the necessity of a guide or interpreter. We find little trouble in making ourselves understood ; but the difficulty is to catch the reply, showing conclusively how much bcttcr mi- f rench is than that ol the residents here, I'crhaps we may be able to come down to the level of our auditors soon. We ho)c so. One of the handsomest buildings we ever saw is the temple of Justice, finished some fifteen years ago, and ill some rs speets surpassing our national cnpitol; especially are its perfectionsshown in the interior arrangements and finish of the several courts, which seem to correspond with, as to arrangements lor general transaction of legal business and in man ner ol appeals from the lower to the higher tribunals. A day has been very pleasantly, and we hope profitably, spent, in viewing many placcs of interest and beauty; and long will the enjoyable impression madeiipon us endure, and refresh us with its mem ory. To-morrow morning early we start for Cologne, where we hoc to ar rive in time to attend service at 1 1 in its celebrated cathedral. As our only stamp is one' for this nation, which will not an swer after we pass its borders at Aix-La-Ch.-iicllc, wc must close, hoping you can read it, which we greatlv doubt. Good bye! ' T. W. 1'.

A special from Austin, Tcxns says: Yesterday evening Gov. Ross received a dispatch from J. M. Weston, of Richmond, saving that a tight hadoccurcd between the"av Kirds" and "Woodpeckers," rival political fac tions, in which sheriff Carvey andilcputy ltlackcny were killed and several others wounded. The dispatch saiil that light ing was still in progress, and troops were needed. A dispatch from Capt. Rcichat dt, of the Houston Light Guards, said Richmond was in the hani' of the mob, and several had Ik'cu killed. At S) p. in. there was great excitement. Gov Ross ordered the Light Guards of Houston under Capt. Kcichnrdt to go lo Richmond at once, and also telegraph ed orders to the Itouhani Grays to be ready to leave at a moment's notice. The "Jaybirds" is a name given to the white Democrats of Fort llend, nuinlicr-ing-Jtlll. The "Woodpeckers" include negroes ami a few whites. The negroes are mostly in the ascendancy. It is the renewal of a race iiiarrel. A Houston, Texas, special says: Capi . Reichardt left here lor Richmond at 12.1(1 last night with thirty-lour men. Two gentlemen who arrived' here by the 11.,'tf) train reported that the "Wood-' pecker" crowd of negroes were in an out house surrounded by the other faction, but no more lighting occurred.

There is but one light burning in the whole town, and that is at the hotel. The riot was pre cipitated by a "Jaybird" walking through town Willi his Winchester rifle. He was arrested, ami mil in iail. The lighting soon began. The dead sheriff and ex-sheriff were "lavhirds." A voium mulatto girl was killed bv accident. All was iiuiet at midnight. Gov.

To-morrow the old and well known Hank of Ashcville begins a new career as a National Hank, with the above name. It has won its claim to its new title and consequence bv reason of long and faith ful service. The Hank of Ashcville, whose successor it is, is the first to he estab lished to meet financial needs after the war west of Charlotte. That was or ganized in May 1S7U. It was always faithfully, judiciously and generously conducted, and has contributed vcry largely to the business facilities of the town and country ; to such degree as to lie in a continued stage of growth ; until now, to meet all the business calls upon it, it enlarges its sphere and also its cai ilal, its paid up capital King $100,000, to Ik, crhaps already, increased to $150,000.

It gives Tin; Citizhn much .pleasure to congratulate Frank Loughran, Usq., upon the splendid success which has at tended his efforts in the management of the celebrated Hickory Inn one of the very best holds ill the whole country, and one that is deservedly growing in popular favor with the traveling public. The management of a big hotel like the Inn, was a new thing to him, but being possessed of any amount of energy, pus and activity, together with excellent judgment and business methods, il did not require any great length of time for Mr. Loughran to develop into a Itouiface of the first order. His success, as a hotel man, has been phenomenal, and to-day his house is well and favorably known throughout the I'liion. Guests at the Inn find all the comforts and conveniences there lliatcau be found in any hotel in America, and the prices they are obliged to pay for these luxuries are most reasonably cheap. In speaking of the Hickory Inn, the National Hotel Register of Chicago, says: "We arc glad to record t In- success of Mr. Frank Loughran as propi ictorofthc Hickory Inn, at Hickory, N. C. When Mr. Loughran, who is known as a suc cessful business man at Ashcville, . C, took possession of (he lliekorv Inn last spring, many people predicted his laihnc. Although not possessed ol hotel ex perience previous lo his proprietorship ol this house, Mr. Louchran has shown marked adaptability for it and has met with excellent success, lie found the hold disorganized, ami soon after he as sumed its control two of the most im portant employes, thinking he could not do without them, demanded an im mcdialc increase of salary. Mr. Lough ran refused their demands; employed new men, took off his coat and went to work with a will, looked into the details of the business, secured new help, made new and belter contracts, ami the result is to-day that the Hickory luii is on a pay ing basis, which condition, by the way. it did not reach imdci llieloriucruiaiiage ment. The hotel is splendidly equipped and carefully and intelligently' managed. We are glad to record its success." K tl'll) CONSTRI CTION. The New IMauiiiK MlilK lleiug IMiHhcd to Completion.

Tin; Citizkn welcomes all such enterprises, ami onlv hopes that another twelvc-inonth will find the milling and manufacturing interests of our progressive city quad rupled in number and capacity. We need and must have factories, no matter what the cost of si-curing them may be. IT WAS J. C. C. I.KVV, A Former KcNidcnt or AHhevllle, Who win Shot by Howard. Mr. J. C. C.

The subjoined correspondence will Ik read by many with very sincere sorrow, liecause it marks Hie severance of the tics, with many lilc long, which had bound the pastor to his thick lor a time, in such relation unusually long, for nearly, if not quite, forty years. Dr. Itux ton as rector of Trinity church has stood in close, affectionate and solemn relation to his own immediate (lock, and in pleas ant and useful relation with the great body id his fellow citizens. Hccanic here when Ashcville was a village, when pop illation was small, when churches were few, and when his own denomiuat ion had scarcely an organized existence. Ouietly, unobtrusively, yet failhfully and steadily, without offence to others, yet with justifiable zeal in the discharge of duty, he built up his own church. Gradually he has had the reward of see ing the small beginning gio-.v into one of the chief denominations of the city; and the great gratification of witnessing the consecration ol the large and costly edi fice built to meet the needs of a steadily increasing congregation. With such a man, so gentle, so good, so learned, so distinguished, his people part with sin cere reluctance, consoled with the knowl edge thai he still remains near them to counsel, cheer and comlort them.

A CROOK CA1TUREI). iUIUI'N MONKY" HATCHFIF.LO IIKIIINIt THK ItAKH. He Hlinveo" Too Much and tiot Into Trouble A Cool Counter letter who Carried HIM Moulds Around In II is iocket, Ktc. One of the coldest criminals ever run down and captured in Western North Carolina was arrested early yesterday morning by officers McDowell, Hampton and Worst-ley of the city police force. The name of the Icllow is II. A. Hatch field, and he claims to be a native of Wake county, living when at home, fif teen miles south of Raleigh. He was arrested in front of the restau rant on South Main street, run by a col ored man named George Greenlee, and the warrant upon which he was pulled charged Hatchficld with coining and is suing spurious money. He had just fin ished a breakfast at the restaurant and was as cool as the atmosphere last night when confronted by the officers. He made no ailcmpl at a resistance and fol lowed his captors to the mayor's office, where he was told to pull oil' his coat. Halchlield complied with the com mand, and as he laid the garment across a chair coolly remarked : "Well, I guess von fellows will find what von are look ing lor in there," pointing towards the coal at the same time with his hand. The officers made a dive for the pockets, and from one ol tlictn fished out a set of plaster of paris moulds containing an ahuosl jicrlecl impression of a silver dol lar of the coinage of Inns. From an other pocket five bran new counterfeit dollars were taken and laid beside the moulds upon the tabic. 1 luring all this lime the coiuitcrlcitcr did not utter a word, anil it was not until the search had bi'cn completed, that he began to talk. He said that he came lo Ashcville last Sunday afternoon on the Last Tcnnessc, Virginia and Georgia train, and that he came from Cumberland Gap where he had purchased the moulds. He had bought, he said, sometime since, about $7f or $10llof bogus money, all of which he had "shoved" in dillcient localities. The five new dollars found on his person he made himself and was his first attempt at coining. lie denied that he had a "pal" here with him, and said that he was entirely alone; he had only been in the business a short time, and had not circulated much of the bogus siiecie in this city. Hatchlicld was taken before I'nitcd Stales commissioner Sumiuey who, after a preliminary examination, committed him to jail to await trial at the Novem ber term of the I'nitcd Slates district court. The police department of the city have liecn working on this case ever since Monday evening, when they heard of llatchficld's presence in west Ashcville. He worked off the counterfeit coins on several parties in that locality mid then came up town to see how many victims he could rope in among the smaller places of business with which the city abounds. He worked oil' one on Greenlee, the first thing, and tried to gel another colored man to change one of the spurious lollars for him. The colored man, however, luckily for himself, did not have the necessary change, ami the "shovcr of the queer" departed. Several business men and other in lividuals in the city have liecn taken in by 1 1,'itchlicld, and his arrest by the police yesterday was a most excellent and timely piece ol work. Notwithstand ing his denial, Ilatchfich! has an accom plice in the city, and the police were look ing for him last night. The police authorities of the city de serve much praise lor their skillful work yesterday in running this dangerous criminal to earth ami placing him behind the bars. Hut, Halchlield he's a cool one.

Viusonum! Lanier. Considering that the Sentinel is a weekly, thai it is a patent outside, and that the inside is printed mostly in small pica, the paper seems to realize that happy ideal so iiiiioe-cutly imagined by a credulous public of a paper being run just for thc I'uti of the thing. Happy trio! Will Menial il Where He Im. Mr. A. Whitlock is not to remove to the new Coiqicr building, now going tip on South Main street.
