APPOINTED BY GOV. CARR TO SUCCEED VANCE. Brief Sketch of the Life and Public Services of the Distin guished Gentleman A Man of the People and a "Well Equipped Statesman Vance's Lieuten ant Governor and Succesor in the Gubernatorial Chair. A Thorough Democrat, &c. I lCalc'mli News-Oliservei -Chronicle. 1 The appointment of Cov. Thomas J. Jarvis as Senator to fill the vacancy created by the death of the lamented Vance was, we imagine, generally expected throughout the State. Although still a comparatively young man, Cov. Jarvis is next to Senator Random, trie most distinguished citizen of the Siate in active political service, and it is fitting that he should wear the mantle that has fallen from the shoulders of the deceased Senator. Having loyally and gallantly served in the army of the Confederacy as Captain of Campany li., Eighth Regiment, he was elected a member of the Constitutional Convention of 1865 from Currituck, his native county, and he was elected from the county of Tyrrell a member of the legislature of 1868 as a Democrat, and was the leader of that little band of braves who rendered the State such signal service in that Republican body. The State rang with his praises which were echoed from the mountains to the seaboard. And in the succeeding Assembly in which the Democrats happily held a majority, Jarvis received merited recognition in being elevated to the Speaker's chair. As presiding officer ot the House he enhanced his reputa tion and made still plainer to the people his superior merit. In those critical times, his counsel was always wise, his conduct just and his course patriotic. He was a member of the Constitu tional Convention of 1875 and again rendered the State signal service of unusual consequence. To him more than any one ebe was due the credit of securing control of that body and thus making possible the reforms which it instituted. The year following he was nomi nated as Lieutenant Covernor on the ticket with (lov. Vance and made an active campaign. Ueing elected, he i presided over the Senate until Vance early in 1879 resigned as Covernor to take his seat as Senator, and during this period he exerted a wholesome influence on legislation and still further increased his knowledge of the needs of the State. Coming to the Executive chair fresh from familiar in tercourses with the active men of the State, and fully conversant with the details of public matters, he entered on his duties fully prepared to dis charge them with a high degree of intelligence. His administration, pro longed by subsequent election by the people to more than six years, was without doubt the most brilliant in the annals of the State, except alone that of Vance during the period of the war. The changes that Governor Vance had begun were taken up and pressed to a conclusion, and new work was undertaken with an energy that bespoke progress in every line of State control. Our people then were prosperous, contented and happy, and responded with cheerfulness to the oi'.M'fst ions of :i nr.irtirnl linvprnor. We had made an exhibit at the sPk of Senator Vance as his dis Atlantn Kvnnsition and at Host on. ' tinguished merits demand, and as we and just before his term ended, the j State instituted an Exposition which j was kept open a month, and which j was a complete epitome of the State's ; i industries and resources. Such was i the titling close ot an administration i which, measured by its fine fruits, had j in the progress and advancement of I the people never been approximated in i our history. About this time, Gov. Jarvis being in New England, made i such a favorable impression, that he j j was much considered as a possible j nominee for the Vice-Presidency. j When Mr. Cleveland was elected in j iSS.y, the legislature by a unanimous j vote of both Houses, the Republicans' cordially concurring, presented Gov. Jarvis' name to him for a cabinet j position. Mr. Cleveland shortly j afterwards' appointed Gov. Jarvis j Minister to Brazil, where he passed j the following four years with honor to himself and credit to the American j people. Since his return he has de- ; voted himself to the practice of his ! profession. i Senator Jarvis has always been a : zealous Democrat. He has made speeches in every county in the State, . and in many of them he has spoken at I every recurring election, lie is a plain, but very forcible speaker. He is direct in his methods, frank and sincere. He is cautious, prudent, and thoughtful. Above all he is patriotic. He is free from narrow sectionalism, but devoted to the interest of the peo- j pie of North Carolina. He will bring to the discharge ot his Senatorial duties, a lofty patriotism, fine intelligence, high integrity, and a .horcgh acqT,ace with e needs of the people of this State, and of the , 1 South Senator Jarvis was born in Curri tuck county, North Carolina, January, 1836, and is now 5S years of age.

A first class man should have a first class office. Mr. Walter R. Henry declines the Curacoa consulship. He is entitled to a better position than the one offered. He is one of North Carolina's ablest and best men. New Berne Journal. Mr. Walter R. Henry, of Hender son, declined the consulship to some place unknown to most people. He is a lawyer of parts, a man of brilliant oratory we have understood, has been efficient as a canvasser, and if he is to receive any recognition by the powers that be it should be of a kind that is worthy of a gentleman of talents and a North Carolina Democrat. Wilming ton Messenger. It is understood that Mr. Walter R. Henry has decided that it is too risky for him to accept the appointment which has been tendered, as the insurance companies will not insure his life at Curacoa. He is willing to serve his country, but is not desirous of sacrificing himself on the altar in these piping times of peace. And so Senator Ransom is seeking to obtain for him a better place, which we hope he will be able to do. Indeed, Mr. Henry merits much more consider ation than the Department has ap parently accorded him. His campaign was one that but few men who have received first class missions can equal have the ability to equal. We know something about men ; and while we do not under-rate North Carolinians, we do not over-rate other people. Raleigh News- Observer- Chronicle. DEATH OF SENATOR VANCE. The death of North Carolina's faithful, able, true, tried and devoted public servant, Senator Zebulon Baird Vance, will cause a pang of profound sorrow to thousand of hearts in the State he has served through so many years, many of them tempestuous and fiery. His death is a sad blow to our peo ple in this time of rJoubt, dispondency and apprehension. At any time his loss would be grievous to North Caro lina, but now it is particularly serious and afflictive. It remoyes from the world the one trusted leader who has done more for our people than any living son has been able to do, and whose plume has been followed with courage and constancy wherever it led, whether in war times or in more peace ful days. We can not at this hour undertake will at another time enter upon, with more of leisure and yet with a sorrow ful heart. We have known him lone. have often paid homage to his high gifts, and distinguished services, and have for many years regarded him as our soundest and ablest public man. His loss will simply be beyond estimate at this serious juncture of public affairs. His fidelity, courage of conviction, de votion to North Carolina, large expe rience in political and State matters, honesty of character and superior abilities, gave him a combination that was without estimate, and his removal is a very great loss to North Carolina. The Senate and the country will be very much the poorer by his demise. Senator Vance was born 13th May, 1830, and if he had lived to his next birthday he would have been 64 years old. He was born in B-mcombe I county and was educated at w'ashing ; ton College, Tennessee, and at the University of North Carolina. He I was elected to the Legislature in 1852, ; and to the United States House of i Representatives in 1858. In 1862, he was elected Governor, and was re : elected in 1864. In 1870, he was j elected to the United States Senate, but the Republicans would not permit I him to take his seat, and he resigned. 1 In January, 1S76, he was for the third time elected Governor. He was elected to the Senate and took his seat in 4th March, 1879. In 1S84, he was re-elected, as he was in T890. So he : was elected Governor thrice and United Stated Senator four times. i His services have been long, and of i very great importance and value to , . ; ' " ; him than to any man wn the State. The people at large have attached to y man wno nas ngurea in the State within our recollection. North Carolina will long cherish his memory and know how to pay fitting honors to its illustrious citizen who was tried in many ways and entrusted with great responsibilities and found efficient and worthy in all. Wilmington Messenger, LAID TO BEST. LAST SAD RITES OVER THE BODY OF SENATOR VANCE. Bnried at Asheville in the Presence of a Larsre Concourse of Sorrowing: Friends and Admirers A Great Demonstration in Honor of the La mented Dead The Solemn Journey From the Table Lands to the Moun tain Tops Scenes and Incidents of the Mournful Occasion. Speeial Correspondence Charlotte Ob erver.l Asheville, April 18. Ashes to ashes ; earth to earth ; dust to dust. All that is mortal of Zebulon Baird Vance was laid to rest to day in the beautiful cemetery around which the dirge-singing French Broad sweeps with majestic curse. Zeb Vance was a mountain boy. His youthful songs had often sounded through his native valleys or rever berated from crag" to crag with all the musical mellowness of Swiss boy's yaoel on heights where Alpine avalan ches have their birth. He knew the hidden paths, and when Elisha Mitchell lost his life, he climbed the hills and searched the gloomy caverns of the Black, leading the Highland clans, until the sullen giant, unwilling, yielded up the body of the dead, be loved preceptor. And so when the news, " Zeb Vance is dead," flew through the mountain caves, all Nature mourned. The sigh ing pines wailed out the awful tiding, until their winged denizens, the mat ing birds, ran airily to every hidden height and dell (as Malise sped the Fiery Cross) until in every mountain nook and cranny it was known "Zeb Vance is dead!" And while the mountain eagle soared up to the sun, Nature's great rugged, rock-ribbed frame shook with grief, and her sad, bleeding heart, despairing, broke. The encircling mountains, led by Pisgah, as Saul among his fellows, standing as a cordon of eternal senti nels, craped their bare heads in clouds, and formed the God appointed guard of honor at the grave. The Swannanoa Nymph of Beauty, in the nvellow Indian tongue which first leaps from the weeping eye of Mt. Mitchell, dashed down the hills ane around the rocks and over the precipices in agony of grief, wailing and weeping and wringing her hands, until, with a despairing sob, she hid herself in the ample bosom of the Tahkeeostee " Racing Waters," whose grief was greater, though more subdued, and who bathe the feet of the grave.crowned hill in the lovely cemetery as the penitent of old washed the feet of Jesus with her tears and wiped them with the hairs of her head ! UP THE MOUNTAIN SIDE. Words can not depict the glorious night as in the moonlight the engine puffed up the mountain. On, on; around, around ; upward, upward ; but the eyes which could most appre ciate it were shut forever. I stood by the side of the casket as the train passed Gombroon. I would love to write the indescribable sensa tion as I then felt, but last falling tears obliterate every pencil mark. All the way across the mountains gleaming lights could be seen in the rude huts the word had gone out among the fastnesses that "Zeb" was dead, and the Highlanders were watching the passing of the corpse. The cultured and wealthy brought the flowers, but the homespun, calico crowd looked on and cried. I stood on Battery Park Heights and saw the red sun come up from be- hind Beaucatcher thev call it Beau-, mont. Not a cloud was in the sky. vi uic ,uui o. u.c um a military com-: pany was marching down to the depot ; to the sound of muffled drums. Sud- ; denly a bell in a near-by church spire j wailed out in musical grief. Innu-! merable carriages rattled by, eoine to I a. . I c fc r . 1 i:n the deuot where the corpse was await-! ing to be brought up to the city. The hearse, drawn by four splendid blacks, soon followed. People began to stir. Another bell and another. I looked toward the southwest for Pisgah. He could not be seen. His stately form and all the western range of hills that surround Asheville as the mountains were around about Jerusalem were hid in a white cape of early morning mist, A strong wind sprang up and wailed through the valleys. Who says that Nature does not know that this is Zeb Vance's funeral day ? The day promises to be a perfect one. The mists are now lifting. It looks as if invisible angels are sweep - ing them away, that man, standing by the side of the grave of the great dead, may look up and fear God and thit God may cast His all-seeing eye down to the same hallowed spot and pity riftn. I finish writing this as the old clock in the court house tower points to ten minutes after seven. This court house stands upon the site of the one where Vance first practiced law. THE FUNERAL- -RAIN FELL IN THE OPEN GRAVE. It is no use to try to describe the funeral procession. It was the mourn fulest North Carolina if not this Uniou ever saw the saddest veterans, sad dest cadets, saddest negroes, saddest school children. It looked as if the decades had skipped and left the sor rows of age upon the little ones. If the burial had been on time it would not have rained, but it was a little late and Nature could not contain herself any longer. She had to weep. It was while the great concourse was around the open grave and the preacher had read the Scripture about the resurrection and the life ; the choir of ladies were singing " Jesus, lover of my soul." They sang it through, too, in spite of the rain, and the few um brellas. Senator George looked long-faced ; Blackburn's eagle eye was cast down ; Dubois looked exceeding sad ; Gray looked tearful ; Chandler looked mag nanimous ; Ransom looked like Apollo crowned with crape and myrtle instead of his usual laurel and her alded by Vesper instead of Aurora. They were all bare-headed. There was never before such universal sad ness and heart-breaking at a grave side. On Nebo's lonely mountain, Moses, who led his people out of the house of bondage, out of the land of Egypt, was buried after being vouchsafed a distant view of the land of Canaan. It was all caused by his being impa tient and angry with a stubborn and stiff-necked people. In the shadows of the great Black Mountain, not far from the once happy home of Gom broon, in lovely Asheville cemetery, Zebulon Baird Vance lies in a new made grave. He delivered his people of the Old North State from the bonds of oppression and from the Egypt of reconstruction but he was permitted only to catch a far-off glimpse of the Promised Land, where the people are to have a reformed tariff and a popu lar currency, because his Israel mur mured and complained and cried : " Raise up for us a new leader and this, too, in the days when the old battle-scarred veteran was grieved in spirit and struggling with disease. And now in the early afternoon the sun is shining over the western hills with a radiance that might be likened to the disappearance into glory of the archangel that attended the funeral as ambassador from the court of Heaven. Little he'll reck if they' 11 let him sleep on, In a grave where Tar Heel's have laid him. The living form of Zebulon B. Vance no longer graces the Senate chambers at Washington, which was the scene of his last labors, and the souls of mourning people encircle as with an ocean of love, that tomb which contains all that is left of him. Words are inadequate to express the feelings of grief at his loss, of reverence for his character, gratitude for his service, thankfulness for his life, and devotion to his memory. A great life has closed. It was a life which in every season, relation and employment, was crowded with all that twaines the affections and ad miration of North Carolinians. Gtanville County Reformer. Why we Need Better Koads. Teams and wagons will last longer with good roads. How to get good roads is a good topic for general discussion. A good road means big loads to and from market in less time. Good roads add more to the culture of farms than anything else of equal cost. A good road built is built to stay. Be sure the locatiou, grade and direc tion are the best before hardening or macadamizing. There is immense amount of money wasted yearly by paying Tom, Dick aud Harry for scratching the dirt roads annually. A town should own a stone crusher, and then a good road would be the result.

What is Said of the Death of the Eminent Statesman Eulogies Pronounced Upon Him by Those Who Knew and Loved t he Ore at Garolinian Universal Sorrow at His Passing Away Senator Vance's Death an Irreparable Loss to His State and Country. A STATE'S 1IKAKT TRIBUTE. It has never been the fortune of any son of North Carohua save Zebulon B. Vance to be as much beloved and honored in life or to be as iouchiugly and sincerely mourned in death. What North Carolina is doing now is but the heart tribute of affection to the memory of the patriotic, devoted aud brilliant son whom in life she confidently trusted and was proud to honor with all the honor that she could confer. In life as he mingled with his peo ple he had time and again been greeted by admiring multitudes, of all classes and conditions, greeted with a warmth and enthusiasm that seemed to be the very extravagance of enthusiasm, but it was not until the great heart had ceased to beat, aud the spirit fledA that North Carolina showed how tenderly and fondly she loved him. lie had his triumphs in life, many of them and great ones, but none which approx imated in all the elements of glorious triumph this solemn funeral march from the scene of his Senatorial eon tests to the resting place on the mountain side in the county of his birth. All the tributes of oratory are as nothing compared with the sorrowful gaze of the multitude as it looks with moistened eye on the lifeless form once the casket of the mighty mind and the great heart aud soul, or the myriads of i flowers banked upon his bier by the j hand of affection as the funeral cortege moves amid sombre draperies, tolling bells and the music of the dirge, all voicing the grief of the State that mourns him as she never mourned another. Wilmington Star. THE DEAD STATESMAN. The State is afflicted; the Nation mourns. From one end to the other of this great land, the death of Zebulou B. Vauce, has been heralded, aud with equal swiftness have the encomiums on the celebrated dead been sounded from Maine to California. His greatness was not confined to this State alone. The Senate chamber echoes had been heard from year to year to pronounce with distinctness his statesmanship and that he was the Commoner of his day. While he is no more iu life, his name is a monument of greatness in death, an eusample for generations to come. He will rank with Clay, Webster, aud Critteudon as a patriot inspired purely by what he conceived to be a duty, bold in the position of right, as he as sumed it and strikingly unbiased by clamor or haste in his part of natioual legislation. He was an honest man. At no time in his history, did even the breath of suspicion blanch his record. No political opponent ever found the slightest cause to assail his character it was with the world a spotless one. He loved his State, and the affection was strongly reciprocated in the re pealed honors thrust upou him. He loyed the South ; he was ever ready to battle for it. He loved his country, aud so stood always between the emis saries of each extreme, in the halls which had so frequently resounded with his pleas for pure and good laws. He was recognized as one of the wisest and most potential men in the politics of North Carolina. With a clear and vigorous mind he grasped every political issue and was able to present his views in a manner that seldom failed to produce conviction worthy to be trusted the people be lieved him. His religion was intensely practical, he recognized the fact that the bedrock principle of Christianity in man is living for the welfare of his fellow mau. In Senator Vance's death the State has suffered an irreparable loss, for, ''turn the pages of North Carolina history and the brightest and most glorious are those illuminated by his heroic acts and splendid achieve ments." Charlotte Democrat. HIS MEMORY WILE NEVER FADE. No North Carolinian in the history of the State was ever so well, so truly and so universally loved as was Senator Vauce. No man has ever been so popular with the masses as Senator Vance. No man will probably ever be so sadly mourned for as h;. There is hardly a child in the State but knows something of this great and good man. His record is probably better known than that of any living or dead North Carolinian and hardly any man knew him who did not love and admire him. His life has been one of laborious work for the people and his death was strain in which he has been for the ; past few years in laboring for the relief, of his people. His memory cau not ; be too highly reverenced. His labors j can never be fully appreciated because j they will never be truly known. To fully and well appreciated him we ; would have to know his every thought and deed through that long cruel civil I war, when he was at the helm ot State s and when every soldier, and every j woman and child loved him as a father.

As North Carolina's great War Gov ernor, lie ranked in point of ettieieney and zeal and all'ection in which lie was held by the troops, higher than any other Southern Governor. Since the war. Gov.

He was a statesman, sincere, brave and true. ltocky Mount Phe n ix. A FKIKXO ALWAYS IX STORM OR SUNSHINE. The genial presence of Zebulon B. Vance iu the United States Senate is now but a memory, but it will be a long enduring memory. Nor will his valuable services in that distinguished body be soon forgotten. He had been a prominent and familiar figure in the Senate chamber for about fif teen years, and while the humor of his eloquence possessed a certain irresistible charm, there were great force and iinpressive ness in his deliverances when serious questions were to be seriously con sidered. He was a man of strong con victions, and had no hesitation in their assertion. He was also a diligent and cllTcient worker in the committee room, and at the time of his death was chairman of the Committee on Privi leges and Elec tious, a member of the Finance Committee, and also a member of the select committee on Woman Suffrage and the United States. University of the Senator Vance was extremely popular with his fellow Senators, and universally well liked for his excellent personal qualities, in the private relations of life no man was more greatly beloved. It is needless to say that by the people of North Carolina, from whom he received repeated bestowals of honor, he was held in the highest esteem. He was always their friend, in storm or sunshine, and his friendship was gratefully appreciated. Washington Post. A GREAT AND OVER-1'OWERI Ni CA LAMITY. There is mourning throughout North Carolina lo-dav. Zebulon li. Vance i is dead aui the people can not he com forted. It is not for us to write the epitaph or pronoun ee the eulogy of Senator Vance. Others more gifted and closer to him in public aud private life will per form that sacred duty. Our place is with the mourners the people of North Carolina. Reverently we stand with uncovered head in the presence of a great aud over-powering calamity. At the proper time steps will be taken to commemorate his worth by the erection of a monument to proclaim his virtues aud perpetuate his fame. The Old North State has few monu ments to her illustrious dead, but the suggestion of a monument to Vance would be immediately followed by the spontaneous contributions of the peo ple. Let it rise until it meets the sun in his coming. Let the earliest light of the morning gild it and departing day linger and play on its summit. New Berne Journal. A PURE AND HONEST MAN. Senator Vance had in part repre sented his State in the upjier branch of Congress for more than twenty years. He was not only the North Carolina Senator, but during the dark days of Mahone's regime in this State our people looked upon him as our j defender and protector, in the branch I of the National Legislature in which ! they had no representative. In those days Virginia Democrats relied upon Senator Vance and his colleague to defend their interests. That the gallant North Carolinian performed this service well is attested by the affection with which he was regarded by our people. The distinguished Senator was a man of fine abilities. Not only was he probably the lest stump speaker known in the South, but he was equally as much at home in discussing the most important national issues before the Senate or in any other presence. Senator Vance served two terms as Governor of North Carolina, an office in which he displayed fine executive ability. But it was as a United States Senator and as a political orator that the deceased was best and most popu larly known. No man was ever more loved it probably would not be an exaggeration to say idolized by the Kopie 01 ms btate man vance. 1 he announcement that he was to sieak at any given point in the Old North State was certain to attract a vast crowd.
