LOCAL LACONICS PICKED UP HERE AND THERE BY OUR EAGLE-EYED REPORTERS. Several new advertisements of im portant lantl ales appear in this paper. liev. .1. K. Ingle, rector of the Church of Holly Innocents, is attending the Episcopal Convention in Asheville this week. There is complaint among some farmers of a .scarcity of tobacco plants, and some diiliculty is anticipated on t his account. In the light of recent events another lesson is taught agaiust people jumping at conclusions and giving credence to every idle rumor put iu circulation by irresponsible parties. 'I'tisiug induces competition and competition is the life of business. An advertisement in the Gold Lkaf reaches people that cannot be ap proached in any other way. A glorious rain fell Tuesday night. It was much needed and came in good time. Farmers made the best of the opportunity thus afforded and thous ands of tobacco plants were set out yesterday. We are promised an article next week by Mr. Itichard Marston along the Jinc discussed by Uev.Thos. Dixon, Jr., of New York, as presented in this paper week before last, on the subject of labor and capital, etc. Ilemember the basket pic nic at Clarke and Alston's Sulphide Calcium Mineral Springs next Monday. Music will be furnished by the Henderson string band. If the day is favorable there will no doubt be a large crowd out. Messrs. Howard and Taylor have moved their stock of harness, saddles, &c. to the store room in the Cooper building, corner Main and Montgomery streets Lassiter's old stand where they will be pleased to see their friends and customers in future. The (.ermartown Independent is quite right when it says this: -'Any one can tell what it means to 'paint the town red, but a good-sized white wash brush, judiciously used, helps the general appearance of things to a much better advantage thau anything else this time of year." In their new Hook for Advertisers, Messrs Geo. V. Howell & Co., the well known newspaper advertising agents of New York city, accord the Gold Lkap distinction by naming it among "the best, most widely circulated, most influential papers at each important center or trade throughout the whole country." The many friends of Rev. and Mrs. T. J. Ogburn deeply sympathize with them in the loss of their infant child, a bright and interesting little boy 14 months old. He had been sick about two weeks and was thought to be im proving when a change for the worse set in and the little sufferer sank into the peaceful sleep of death Sunday inoruing. lirother Dibrell, of the Richmond Southern Tobacccnist, saw something mare than the dinner that pleased him when he attended the bright tobacco planters' convention in Henderson. He says: The Ladies, Guild, of Henderson, the pretty tobacco cap brigade, proved well drilled waitresses a feast for the eyes. Faces we saw were not to be forgotten. The Gold Leak is indebted to Mr. Joseph Terrell, of Richmond, for a splendid new map of that progressive city and its environments, together with valuable and interesting data and statistics showing its metropolitan ad vantages, manufactures. trade and business facilities. &c. The map was published under the auspices of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, which is doing good work in, the up buikliug of the city. Wo w ere pleased to have calls this week from Mr. W. C. Dodson, dealer in printers' supplies, types, presses. &c, Atlanta, Ga. A trust worthy and reliable man, to do business with as we already knew him to be. . we found him quite as pleasant and agreeble in person and were glad to make his acquaintance. IKxlsou's printers' supply depot is the largest house of the kind in the South, aud enjoys a reputation and patronage second to none. A person can not exercise too great care of their teeth.

There is not a nobler institution in all this land than the Oxford Orphan Asylum, and the mere announcement, at any time, that it is in need of fuuds, should have the effect of bringing iu a substantial flow of coin and other needful and useful articles in the way of food and clothing. It requires no long-winded homily to impress upon the mind of any thinking person that there is no more deserving institution within the boundrie.s of the State than this Home for the farthless and mother less little children who are cared for there.

Deceased was only about 18 yeas old and had been married but little more than 11 year.

A genial, pleasautgen tleman, old in years but young in heart and spirit, he makes friends ot all with whom he meets and is emiently the right man in the right place. Mr. Terrell tells us one of his chief delights in traveling through North Carolina is in meeting with the old soldiers and talking over the events of the past. He says there were no braver or better fighting soldiers than the Tar Heel boys, and he accords to them the highest honor and respect wherever he meets them. A gallant soldier always admires the valor of another. tefA good assortment of Wotphpo beautiful ew Gold and Silver " alUUJ just received at HIGHT'S.

His First Sermon. Mr. A. Whit Cheatham, a Henderson boy, who is studying for the ministry at Union Theological Seminary, at Ilampdcn-Sidney College, Va., as the special charge of the Henderson Presbyterian church, preached his first sermon to a large congregation last Sunday night. He preached from the text: "For as I passed by, and beheld jour devot'ons,I found an altar with this inscription, To thk Unknown God. Whom therefore ye iguorantly worship, him declare I unto you." Acts, xvii ch., 23rd v. It was a well conceived and well delivered sermon for a young man not yet 21 years old, and was as grat ifying to his friends as it was creditable to himself. Those who know Whit Cheatham have recognized hinj as a bright boy with a promising future, but we doubt not his hearers were agreeably surprised at" the fresh evidence given of it Sunday night. This is his first year at the Seminary. He graduated at Davidson College last June with highest honors. Entering college under 10 years of age he was not permitted to enter the Greek class but during the closing year he received the Greek tutorship and was engaged at a salary of $100 to teach Greek, standing first in a class of 32, of which he was the youngest. He has natural ability, industry and ambition and will not be satisfied until he reaches the highest position of honor and usefulness to which he may reason ably aspire. During vacation Mr. Cheat ham will supply the churches at War renton, Louisburgaud Geneva, preach ing twice a month at the first named place and once at the others.

RENOUNCES FURTHER CON NECTION WITH THE CASE, HE And Sigrns a Card Acknowledging: that he Has been Deceived and Misled in the Matter. He Exonorates Col. Buagwyn and Makes an Honorable Amend for the Injury Done that Gentleman. Dan Hall has sha' e 1 the dust of Hen derson from his feet. He stepped out of Vance county jail with more buoyant spirits and elastic fetep yesterday than he has done before since he first found lodgment there on the afternoon of March 28th. He was about to take his leave of Hen derson and return tohishomein Atlanta. The particulars of his release are as follows: Monday three gentlemen came here from Atlanta to see if they could not do Bomethina: to get "Dan" out of the trouble he was in. They were Messrs. W. C. Dodson and I). Perkinson, brothers-in-law, and Mr. John Hall, brother of Dan Hall. They did not state what course they would pursue and the general impression was that they had come to go on his bond aud would do this if the decision of the Supreme Court was un favorable to him. They consul ted counsel on both sides, had an interview with Col. Burgwyn and talked with citizens of the town in regard to the matter. They had come to inform themselves about his af fair and having done so they were not long in deciding what was the proper thing to be done. Col. Burgwyn was approached on the subject and while he was frank to express his regrets at the difficulty Hall and Jen kins had got themselves into, he could not, in justice to himself, drop the matter and give them their freedom. It must be settled in the courts. It had not been his pleasure or desire that they should have to go to jail. He had hoped they would be able to give their bond, as an evidence of which fact he had consented for it to be reduced. He did not want to persecute them, but he did feel perfectly justifiable in proteculinj them and would do it to the full extent. He must have satisfaction, (not in a monetary sense, for those who know Col. Burgwyn have no idea that it is "blood money' heis after), but a vindication of his character and the integrity of his Bank. His character had been assailed, the integrity of the Bank of which he is President, has been impugned and vindication, full and com plete, must be had. This was what he wanted and not a verdict for damages in dollars and cents. The books and accounts bearing on the case (Col. Burgwyn'a debt against the Henderson Tobacco Company, wherein Jenkins alleges th ere was fraud and embezzlement and to establish which he employed Hall to assist him as special detective), having been examined and found to be correct, Hall discovered that he had been deceived and misled by Jenkins and certain of his friends. He was ready to confess his error and make proper amends for the injury doneCol. Burgwyn. Upon such intimation on his part his rel atives had come on here to see what could be done in his behalf. Tuesday a proposition looking to a satisfactory settlement of the matter as far as Hall was concerned was made to Col. Burgwyn, but as he was going to leave on the 2:30 p. m. train for Raleigh to attend the Immigration Convention yesterday, he referred Messrs. Dodsou and Perkinsou to Dr. W. T. Cheatham and Mr. John D. Cooper, and ascertaining that they would act for him left the matter entirely with them. These gen tlemen were selected because of their prominence as citizens, their conservatism and the peculiar position occupied by them in regard to this whole affair. Dr. Cheatham is one of the oldest and best citizens of the town, and the father- in-law of the president of the opposition or rival bank to Col. Burgwyn's. Mr. Cooper is one of the most prominent citi zens and an ex-Mayor of the town. He is also one of the stockholders and direc tors in the bank above mentioned. While both gentlemen have had implicit confi dence iu Col. Burgwyn's integrity aud the correctness of his accounts, they have taken no partisan part in the mat ter, and this was another reason why they seemed fit and proper persons in the opinion of Col Burgwyn to represent him. As a result ofaconsultatiou between the parties interested and Gen. W. H. Cheek aud Messrs. A. C. Zollicoffer andUJ. H. Bridgers, of counsel for Col. Burgwyn (Mr. W. R. Henry was out of town at the time) it was agreed that if Mr. Hall should sign a card to the public vindicating Col. Burgwyn, the case as far as he was concerned would not be prosecuted further . After the investigation of the books he had expressed himself as satisfied and said he was sick of the matter. He was ready to do so publicly and'eon fess that he had been deceived and misled. Upon this information his kinsmen came here from Atlanta and as the result of their visit Mr. Hall returned home with them yes terday, having signed the following card which explains itself: TO THE PUBLIC. Hexdersox, X. C, May 13th, 1801. I feel it due to myself and the public, and especially to CohWm.H. S. Burgwyn, to write the following: In the matters in controversy between II. T. Jenkins, the Henderson Tobacco Company and Cel. Burgwyn, which are now pending in the Courts of North Caro lina, I desire to explain my position. At the beginning of this trouble I was em ployed by H. T. Jenkins as a detective to investigate the matters of account and acertaiu if there wereerrors. My actions ia this case have been from the first pro fessional, and based upon information fur nished me aud not from any personal knowledge of the transaction. Mr. Jenkins had upon many occasions stated to me, there were many errors, false entries on the books and embezzlements, and that instead of being indebted to Col Burgwyn, he, the said Burgwyn , was largely indebted to him Acting upon this information, in the discharge of what I conceived to be my duty as a detective, I went into this case, and have used my best eudeavors in be half of Mr. Jenkins. In the investigation of the whole matter in open Court, the books, accounts and papers of the Bank were examined and Col. Bnrgwyn was also examined on oath. In this matter I find that I have beea grossly deceived by Mr. Jenkins and liis friends in every respect. In the examination of the books and evidence,! found no false entries, or errors. although I had been informed by Mr. Jenkins that they certainly existed. I found the books and accounts correct, and supported ia every case by proper vouchers. ' Laboring under the information given me by Mr. Jenkins (which I now find was without foundation) I feel that I have injured and wronged an honorable gen tleman. - I therefore here aud bow of my own accord, desire to say to the public, that as an honest man, desiring to do only that which is right to my fellow-man, I retract all that has been said or written by me in this matter derogatory to the character or business standing of Col. Bnrgwyn, or his former cashier Mr. R. L. Daingerfield, who has also in this trans action shown himself athoroughly honest gentleman. This card is written not at the suggestion of Col. Burgwyn, or his counsel, but as a matter of simple jus tice. (Signed) Dan Hall. Witnesses: W. T. Cheatham. M. D., John D. Cooper. Upon information received from Mr. Dan Hall that he had been misled by false informatibn given him in thecontro versy between Jenkins and Burgwyn, as his friends and relatives we came to Hen derson to see what could be done in the matter. Upon our arrival we looked into the case, and from all the information we could gather, we were satisfied Mr. Hall had been deceived and misled, and that Col. Burgwyn, who is a gentleman of high character and standing, had been greatly misrepresented, and we there fore approve of the course taken by Mr. Hall iu wriling the above card. (Signed) 1). Perkinsox. (Signed) W. C.Dodsox. Witnesses: W. T. Cheatham, M. D., J ohn D. Cooper. So "Dan" is not "in it" now. He simply made a mistake, relying entirely upon statements made to him by others, and upon which all his charges, cards and newspaper publications have been based, and when he realized it he was ready to say so. His card is a full retraction, and under the circumstances, as honorable to him self as it is complete in its vindication of Col. Burgwyn.

The hearts of many in our communit y were made sad on Sabbath morning last, the 10th May, at the announcement of the death of little Richard Davidson, the youngest child of Rev. and Mrs. T. J. Og burn. The little fellow was a short while ago as fine a specimen of childhood ascould be found; but he was overtaken with disease, and his wonderful strength and manliness for one of his age, was forced to succumb. The devotion and constant attention of a father of extraordinary tenderness and childish sympathy; of a mother, of the deepest affection and anxious watchfulness; as well as the un wearied faithfulness of a physciau of great skill were all exercised in vain, for "The Lord hath need of him." As the sun arose in his brightness to usher in another Sabbath, his little sunlight went out in the brilliancy of the light of the Son of Righteousness as he entered into the rest, or Sabbath, that remaineth to the people of God. The great comfort of those who sorrow in this affliction is in the assurance, that "where sin abounds grace does much more abound." The blessed Master said "Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven." There shall hebe ever with theLord. Meditating on these blessed assurances we mav truly say, "It is well with the child." Although this little one's life in this world was so short, he being only 14 months and 2 days old at his death, yet his mission was fulfilled, and although the earnest prayer of parents and friends was for a length ening of the cord of life, yet we were all able to say Not our will but Thine be done. The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away, blessed , be the name of the Lord. S State of Ohio, City of Toledo, Lucas County, s ' Frank J.

Mr. Editor: The history of those who did so much for their country in her struggle for freedom, should be written that survivors may know to whom they are indebted for the bless ings they enjoy. Robert Morris was a true friend of his country and nobly acted his part. Few of our country men know how generously he came to the relief of the country iu her hour of ' need. When the hunsrv and ill clothed soldiers were almost ready to despair and give up the struggle he generously supplied their wants and kept them iu the field. He came with his father from England when a small boy. At the age of 15 he was put in a business house in Philadelphia ami showed such business capacity at the age of 21 he was taken iu as a partner. His suc cess was wonderful. When the war commenced he was a man of great wealth. He not only assisted with his own money but became surety for the government to obtain a loan of fifteen millions of dollars from France. When the war was over he found himself with less than what he had when it began. He had given it in aid of the country. He was a member of the Continental Congress when the question of separa tion was discussed. His name appears as one of the signers of the instrument that declared our purpose to strike for freedom. He was one of the framers of the Constitution, an instrument showing so much wisdom many think Divine Providence had much to do in dictating it. After its adoption he served as Senator in Congress and was solicited by Washington to accept the position of Secretary of the Treasury. He recommended Hamilton, the ablest financier our country has ever produced. Morris was a noble and generous man. Aided by such men as Franklin and Hamilton he submitted his plan for the establishment of the Bank of North America. It was chartered on the 31st of December, 1791. With such a man as Morris at the head it proved a suc cess and relief to the country. Thomas Paine, author of the papers signed "Common Sense," which were much ap proved, took five hundred dollars of the stock. He showed more "common sense" by that movement than by writing the "Age of Reason" to mis lead the minds of young men. Wishing to build up his depleted fortune he had so lavishly expended in aiding his country, he invested largely in real estate in western New York, which well nigh ruined him financially. Al- ; though he had kindly given such effi cient aid to our people in the darkest i hour of the contest, no hand was lifted for his relief when misfortune overtook him. He had the consolation, hovv- ever, of feeling that his money had j been spent in rendering more comfort able our suffering soldiers, and in lilting the hand of despotism from liis bleeding country. He passed away on the 8th day of May, 1806, a noble type of a true and devoted patriot. R. W. II.
