The committee that has charge of the work of the Wil mington district, (including An son, Montgomery, Chatham, Harnett, Sampson, Duplin and Fender counties) has decided to hold a convention for this dis trict, in Maxton, Juno 14th to HHh. at which time and place the following subject:' will be discussed: "Pastor's Relations to the As sociation."

We have many instances where those who are regarded as warit- ngin that much admired quali fy, bravery, have, when the oc casion offered itBelf, surprised all who knew them by brave and ncble deeds. Thd follow ing account of a young man who lived in the fated town of John stown, Pa., is a striking example of this character: Edward C. Willis, a young foundryman of Cambria, whom uo one suspected of having more than ordinary courage, when the flood was at its height and peo ple were floating down the rush ing torrent in hundreds, rushed to his boat, and senseless to the pleadings of his wife and rela tives., shoved his frail craft out into the angry current, gliding alongside a floating roof upon which a woman and two child ren were kneeling with blanch ed faces and stony stare. He skillfully evaded the obstruc tion that every minute threaten ed to crush the craft and lifting the terrorized creatures to his boat shot across to a point of safety. A shout of enthusiasm swelled from the throng that lined the bank, but unmoved by their plaudits young Willis re peated the perilous journey seven times until twenty-two lives had been saved-by his in domstajle energy. Next day, when most of Johnstown was still under water, Willis ascend ed the stream to the desolate city and again distinguished himself by many acts of hero Ism and endurance. A tribute too great cannot be paid to his noble character. But, after all, among tho heroes that these strange scenes developed he is only one of many. PltOGlCAMMH Of Trinity College Commence ment.

The capital stock is 85,000, with the privilege of in creasing to 830,000. The shares were put at $25.00 each, thus en abling men of small means to take stock. - Capt. J. L. 4utry, of Shepard, was in the city last Friday. The Captain is much esteemed here, where ho has many friends. At the meeting of the Board of Magistrates last week Major A. A. McKethan resigned as a county commissioner, and Mr. Neill R. Blue was elected to fill the vacancy. Pressing business duties compelled Major McKe than to resign. lie was one of the best commissioners the county ever had. The tax levy was fixed at 1 for State and courty purposes, the poll tax at 2.30. Capt. S. C. Rankin, Cols. Win. Alderman and Duncan Shaw were re-elected as the Board of Education, ana uoi. v. S.

The price paid was 5,500. The mill is located on the bank of the river, and most of the tim ber is floated down from the up per Cape Fear, much of it com ing from Harnett county. The work on the piers for the railroad bridge across the river is progressing rapidly. The work. of excavation for the pier in the middle of th river has commenced. This is the most troublesome of the fivf. Maj. B. C. Gorham, oi this city and 'Miss Lizzie Riahton were married at New Berne last Thursday and arrived here that night. The bride has been a teacher in the Graded School here for several years. A delightful picuic was had at Carver's Falls, several miles North of this city, Thursday evening. About fourteen cou ples .participated, going out late in the afternoon and returning by moonlight. They were chap eroned by Capt. and Mrs. Chas. Humphrey and Mrs. E. L. Pem berton. Sr. . Dr. and Mrs. T. D. JIaighhave returned from St. Louis, where they have been visiting their son. The farmers continue to bring reports jf fine crops. The pros pect is good, and we rejoice with the farmers and hope with them that the harvest will be abundant. The hotel men say that trav el is very light now in this sec tion. A Military School and a Fe male College are two things desired and needed in this city. Our citizens are ready to co-op erate with the right men. Fay etteville is the place where the Odd Fellows ought to establish their orphan asylum. The arse nal grounds would be a beauti ful location." It overlooks the city and the owners will proba bly give the site. The carpenter shops of the Express Steamboat Company w-re destroyed by fire on Mon day night. It was an incendia ry fire, and it is thought thit the same scoundrel who burned the warehouse of another com pany a week or two ago set fire to the shops. It is to be hoped that he will "be caught. Detec tives are after him. The editor of the Observer, with his indomitable pluck and vim, proposes to Taise tho sum of 81,000 to establish a Confed erate Veteran's Camp during the Centennial in November, and asks for subscriptions of one dollar or more. He starts the ball with a subscription. Now, since it is certain that Hoc Jefferson Davis win be here, hundreds of ex-Confeder ates will desire to meet him and accommodations will be slight, this camp will be a necessity. Rooms are already being enga ged at the hotels. We hope the press of the State will give this worthy effort publicity and fa vorable comment. ; All sub scriptions should be forwarded to Z. W;.

Tha General Secretary will soon be here to take charge of the work. The Centennial Committee of fifty met in the rooms of 5the Cotton Exchange last Friday af ternooD and appointed the sub committees. An attempt was made last Friday night to break into the stoes of Messrs. A. Moore and C. M. Watson, on Market Square. The policeman on that beat run against them, but they escaped. A special meeting of the County Alliance is called to meet in this city to-morrow. A committee from the directors of the canning factory is to meet them to make plans to dispose of the fruit crop. AVONlliKSOF THE UNIVERSE What assertion will make one believe that in one second of time one beat of the pendulum of a clock, a ray of light travels over 152,000 miles, and would therefore perform the tour of the world in about the same time that it reauires to wink with our eyelids, and in much less than a swift runner occu pies in taking a single step. What mortal can be made to believe, without demonstration, that the sun is almost a million times larger than the earth? And that, although so remote from us, a cannon-ball shot di rectly towards it, and maintain ing its full speed, would be 20 years in reaching it? Yet it effects the earth by its attrac tion in an appreciable instant of time. Who would not ask for de monstration when told that a gnat's wing, in its ordinary flight, beats many hundred time3 in a second, or that there exists ani mated and regularly organized beings, many thousands of wnose bodies laid together would not extend an inch? But what are these to the as tonishing truths which modern optical inquiries have disclosed, which teach that every point of a medium through which a ray of light is affected with a suc cession of periodical movements regularly recurriDg at equal in tervals, no less than five hund red millions of times in a single second. That it is by such movements communicated to the nervss of the eye that we see. JNay, more, tnat it is tne difference in the frequency of their recurrence which affects us with the sense of the diversi ty of color ? That, for instance, in acquiring the sensation of redness, our eyes are affected four hundred and eighty-two millions of millions of times ; of yellowness, five hundred and forty-two millions of millions of times; and. of violet, seven hundred and seven millions of millions of times per second? Do not such, things sound more like the ravings of madmen than the sober conclusions of people in their waking senses? They are, nevertheless, conclusions to which any one may most cer tainly arrive . who will only be at the trouble of examining the chain of reasoning by which they have been obtained. The people of the United States have virtually monopo lized the name --American' While there are a number of other countries 'not so great, it is true in America, the inhabi tants of each are known by the name of their respective conn tries. If a man lives in Brazil, and goes abroad, he is known as a Brazilian; if he Uvea in Cana da, as a Canadian; in Mexico, a3 a Mexican; but if hn resides in New York city or elsewhere it the Union, and goes abroad, he is known not as an United states ian. which would violate all rules of euphony, but an Ameri can. The country is great, how ever, and the people who live in the United States - are distinct ively American, and for that reason entitled to the appella tion. New and Observer. 18G5.-1S8& SOUTHERN' WOMEN DECO RATE THE GRAVES OF THE BLUE AND THE GRAY. This Act Turns the Tide of Popular Feeling. It was, I think, Church, who during our civil war, painted the picture -of "Our Banner in the Sky." Loyal people everywhere straightway went mad over it. It showed a pale sunrise, barred with crimson clouds, - parting over an area of sky still dark- blue with night, and gemmed with stars. From a mountain below towered a dead pine that supplied the shaft of the flag. As with all popular rages, this one palled upon our taste, by-and-by. It was sharply criticis ed as unnatural and impossible, laur.hed at as a trick of art, and finally went out of fashion. I had not seen a reprint, even in a shop window, for six taonths, when, on April 6th, 1865, 1 threw open my window before sunrise, to let in the morning freshness, and beheld the picture itself! Against a dim blue black- ground, streaked with rose, the slender gray spire of a venera ble church shot high toward heaven, and from the summit streamed straight and steady, the "Stars and Stripes." So straight, that the flag might have been painted upon the dim blue with Venus, mild and lus trous, in the lead of the fading train of night-star; so steady, that not a fold crossed the sur face of the level bunting. It was the embodiment of the Nation's sublime triumph; the visible expression of her solemn joy in a restored Union; the har binger of a reign of peace and good-will. Hour and scene wero never to be forgotten. The city had not awakened from slumber; the still heavens seemed, to my thrilled imagination, bending to join in the matin-service of holy praise held by the old church and Our Banner in the Sky. The Great Calm after a four years' night of storm, and wreck, and blood, was only the begin ning of the real end of the wa r. How often during the decade that followed the evacuation of the Confederate capital and the declaration of peace, did our hearts fail us for fear that the gaping wound left by the fratri cidal strife would never heal over at least in this, our gene ration? How often we heard from one side and the other, muttered through clenched teeth, the ominous reminder, "The blocd of the conflict i3 on me still!" Wise men, North and South, deprecated the institution of a stated season for decorating the graves of those who had fallen in the war. It were better, rea soned the peace-lovers, to make haste to forget that which had ploughed such lontr furrors in our burial fields. "Best," retort ed the anpacified, "that the South be interdicted from pub lic commemoration of those she called heroes r horn Justice branded rebels." When Virgin ia women drew to their bosoms the cherished stars and bars, and set them in tearful defiance over dead sons, brothers and hus bands, upon the recurrence of each Memorial Day;when bouth ern orators embraced these oc casions to eulogize Jackson, Hood and Lee; when war-scar red veterans marched yearly, with spade and mattock, to re new the sinking mounds that marked the resting places of their slain comrades, it was be lieved byreconstructioniststhat the Goverment ought to inter fere, as for the suppression of treason. For a few years we mourned our dead apart, and, to the su perficial eye, it seemed that each anniversary of Memorial and Decoration Day (now 3ealously we kept the names distinct!) widened, not lessened, "the bloody chasm." Is was, if I mistake not, nine years after the close of the war, that the papers on the morrcw of the Memorial Day ceremo nies in a southwestern city, and this notice: "The graves of Confederate and Federal soldiers were deco rated alike yesterday, by the hands of Southern women." That little sentence marked the turn of the tide, the parting ol the bitter-salt ooze to show the spot where the divine dove of peace might find rest for the sole of her foot. It is not so nominated in National annals, but the truth remains that, from that hoar, the recession of the flood had been steady The culmination of the holy triumph was in the Centennial celebration on April 30tb, 1S39. The banners that floated that day from spire, and tower, and mast-head, bore tho emblem now dear and facred to the hearts of a united people, glory ing in that union. For the first time since the torn soil received their lifeless forms, the fallen heroes of both sectioan wa, on Decoration - Day, remembered without bitternea. "Blue and Gray," were meaningless terms in the speech and thoughts of those who, all over our broad land, planted above the flower wreathed beds o2 sleeping war riors, one and the same standard, the colors that nw straight and steady in the dawn of that April day, twenty-four years ago! The Decoration Day of 1889 was a Nation's Lbenezer. Let us rejoice and be glad in it ! Marion Harland, in Once a Wed;. THE VALUE OP PUKE AUS. Some ICesults of Breathing Im pure Air. The atmosphere we breathe has in its natural state a nearly uniform composition of oxygen, nitrogen, carbonic acid and wa tery vapor. It is conceded that in each inspiration four cubic inches are taken into the lungs, one half of which disappears in the act of inspiration. This consumption of oxygen is great er when the temperature is low than when it is high, and dur ing digestion it is greater than when the stomach is empty. Riding in the steam and horse cars we are compelled to breathe not only the air from people's lungs, but the exhalations from their skins and clothing, Fan cy riding in the steam cars for j a long distance in winter time, i with two large stoves heated almost red hot with antricite coal, in a space say of fifteen feet wide and ten feet high. This space will contain abouf i eighty people; and is closely j shut up. All know the stove j uses up oxygen with great ra didity, and what is left is breathed over and over again by the people, jeho are giving out from their lungs constantly a gas utterly unfit to be breathed. Is it any wonder headache and nausea steal over them ? They must either sit in a draugh t or endure the poison, as the ven tilators are uot enough to carry off the foul air. Visit some school-houses af ter a walk in the fresh air and the odor is something disgust- g. These unpleasant sensa tions come from want of greater ventilation. Here again the air is vitiated by breaths and cloth ing; many of the pupils scarce ly know the luxury of a good bath and plenty of clean under clothing. Now, can the air be anything but bad under such circumstances? If the windows are open long the teacher and children take cold, and some are af raid and think they cannot stand the smallest breith of fresh air. A school-room thirty feet square and eight feet high con tains seven thousand two hun dred cubic feet of air. This room will seat sixty pupils. Al lowirg ten cubic feet of air to each pupil per minute, all the air in the room will be vitiated in twelve minutes. Now, grant ing that every means is used regarding ventilation, and a goodly supply of soap and water to scrub thu floors instead of s seeping. A recess of five min utes ought to be given every hour, so that the children could move about, nave tne windows and doors wide open and let them breathe in freely the pure air of nature, to repair their mental and physical condition. Effects arc proportioned to causes, and if an atmosphere Oil ed with five per cent, of carbon ic acid will produce death in a few minutes, what must be the effect of breathing for ten, twen ty or forty years the much small er proportion which must be ne present in every lnnaDitea room when there is not a cou- staut incoming and outgoing of air? It does and must lewer thm standard of health and shorten our lives. Let a pe:son whn is in food health, with a sound nasal organ, take a brisk walk in the open air, then come at once into an inhabited room, and if there is any unpleasant odor the air of that room is hurtful. How many dwelling, sitting rooms: or bed-rooms would pass such an ordeal in the early morning after being occupied at nisrht. Bad air, being heavy, always sinks to the floor, and to be got rid of must be drawn from the floor, either by open fireplwies or some means of ventilation. A room ten by twelve by twelve contains fourteen hundred and forty cable feet of air. the avail able oxygen of which i used up by one person ia half an nonr.

We suffer most in winter for want of ventilation: th outs 1,1 o cold makes us close all the ap eratures in the rooms, srhile in summer the heat makes us open all the doow-and windows. I think It preferable from my standpoint, to have less heat in the rooms, to air them everv two hours, to get rid uf the fur nace irasesand in the evenings to getaway with the deadly car- Don rrom our gas jets. Let leanhness be the watchword in every home from attic to collar. Keep plenty of disinfectant around the washbowls and wa ter closets. In damn cellars keep charcoal alwavs. It is siraple and cheap.
