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.

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

received in profusion for all of which
the recipient tenders the most grateful

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
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. McKethan, in
behalf of the Independent Company,
making the liberal subscription of $100

my command, after thanking . you for
the honor conferred in our selection as
escort to the Arlington Dead, to remit
