Last Monday those departments of the FayettevUle Graded School, which have for some time been occupying a portion of the Female Seminary build ing, were removed to the new edifice on Haymount, and are now comfortably installed in the different rooms of their new quarters. The new building is warmed by a large heater which will regulate the temperature throughout the whole structure, and do away with much trouble and inconvenienec in fuel, besides lessening the risk by fire. In this connection, it gives us pleas ure to speak in commendatory terms of the excellence of the Graded School, as evinced so far in its fall session. The attendance is large, and both teachers and pupils seem determined to keep the institution up to its high standard. List of Utters.

"Pounding." Quite a pleasant gathering of friends met at the residence of Mrs. W. B. Hol lings worth on Wednesday evening, 24th inst., to give some manifestation of their kindly feeling and sympathy for the bereaved family and children as well as for the departed husband. Con tributions of all kinds, delivered in per son, or sent by generous 'hands, were received in profusion for all of which the recipient tenders the most grateful appreciation. This handsome compliment was made under the auspices of the Baptist Con gregation, and met with a heartfelt response. Important to Exhibitors.

All ar ticles intended for exhibition must be shipped on or before Tuesday, the 6th of November, and none of them will be returned over the road until Nov. 10th. A Pleasant Entertainment. "Looker-On gives us the following pleasant and interesting notice of an entertainment givenjby Mr. H. McD. Robinson at the FayetteviUe Hotel, last Saturday night; Our young, talented and very social friend, H. McD. Robinson, again gave a number of his friends including the dignified bachelors and many of the most fashionable beaux in town quite a fete at the Fayetteville Hotel on Sat urday night last. It was a matter of dispute among the celebrated Epicure ans present whether the oysters or the 'possums .were the best cooked. The supper was creditable alike to the taste of "mine host" of the hotel and the gen tleman who conceived the idea of giv ing the first -'stag' party of the season. The question is still unsolved as to who will give the next. It was a verv enjoyable affair, and the writer hopes that the example of our young and generous friend will a wake to action some other generous Ep icurean. The Case of McDonald. The jury of inquest, in the case of ! Thos. McDonald, run over bv an engine on the Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley R. R., on the night of the 19th inst., after its adjournment on last Friday, met on Monday, 29th inst., composed as follows: Dr. J. W. McNeill, Coroner: Jury Capt. S. C. Rankin, foreman; W. H. Tomlin son, H. O.Sedberry, A.M. Campbell, Jr., R. F. Peterson, E. M. Waddill. The jury's verdict was as follows: That Thos McDonald came to his death by being accidentally run over by an engine on the C. F. &. Y. V. R. R." The evidence exonerates the rail road and its employes. It finds no care lessness on the part of the engineer,, who was not, as charged, running a gainst orders. His death was solely caused by his getting his foot fastened between the rail and a plank on the trestle at the water tank, causing him to fall in such a manner that the engin eer could not see him. A Generous Subscription. The Raleigh News-Observer of Thurs day, 25th inst publishes the following letter from Maj. A. A.
