THURSDAY, .JAN. lO, 181Ki. is NORTH CAROLINA WAR HISTORY THE FIRST CAVALRY. The sketch by Gen. R. BarriiiKtr, of his old regiment, the First Cavalry, in this issue, was prepared by him at the request of Judge Walter Clark, on behalf of the North Carolina Con federate Veterans Association. It will be remembered that at a meeting of the association during the State Fair at Raleigh in October last, it was resolved to take some practical steps towards securing the necessary materials for a proper history of the part taken by North Carolina in the late civil war. Judge Clark was designated to select a suitable person from each of one hundred and more regiments and battalions raised by the State, to write up clearly and concisely the main facts in its history. These would, in most instances, be published in proba bly both the local and general press of the State, and thus invite criticism and secure accuracy. Afterwards, the whole would be revised and published in a suitable volume as a basis for historic use. Judge Clark has patriotically under taken the work assigned him and at once selected Gen. Harringer to write up his famous First Cavalry. The latter, too, has promptly responded to the call so made upon him. As this regiment was noted for its superior drill and discipline, and also for its remarkable career in the Army of Northern Virginia, its history becomes in fact a short epitome of that great army. Besides, Gen. Harringer has succeeded in giving some quite graphic accounts of the cavalry opera tions of that army, not general') known, and which will doubtless bring readily to the minds of the old tro ;s of Stuart and Hampton a vivid recol lection of their numerous marches and counter-marches, and of battles 1 st and won. We are authorized by Gen. Uarringtr to say that he invites a free and frank criticism of the work done, and will promptly correct any well-aun uti cated errors or mistakes. The uresent sketch, or " Pari I." is r limited to the period from the orgnu zation of the regiment in June, 1861, to June, 1864, while Gen. Uarringer himself was with the First, and up to the date ot his promotion as a brigadier, June 6th of that year. The operations of his brigade (including, of course, its several regiments First, Second, Third and Fifth Cavalry) were fully set fourth in a semi-official report made to his division commander. W. 11. F. Lee, in 1S66, as called for by Gen. R. K. I.ee. Gen. Uarringer had hoped to make a briet synopsis of a rough copy of this report still in his hands as covering the First Regiment. But his continued failure of strength now leaves this in doubt. He, however, promises to any one who will undertake the work the full benefit of all his material. We sincerely trust that his success in this line in the present article may stimu late others in the same direction. The above is taken rrom the Char lotte Observer, of Sunday. We have read the article referred to with much interest. In several places the name of our gallant townsman Col. W. II. Cheek, who bore a conspicuous part in many of the most brilliant achieve ments of the First North Carolina Cavalry, is prominently mentioned In one place speaking ot an engage ment the details of which were recently published in the Gold Leak, as copied from the Richmond Dispatch, Gen. Barringer says : Both armies now went into winter quarters, our brigade at Milford Sta tion, but still picketing the Rapidan over twenty miles off. During the winter no special cavalry movements occurred until about the 1st of March, when the Kilpatrick-Dahlgren raid oc curred and three hundred men from the North Carolina brigade, under Col Win. H. Cheek, made a night attack on the raiders, near Atlee's Station, and completely routed them, captur ing many prisoners with valuable arms, etc. This was really one of the most brilliant feats of the war, and Col. Cheek was highly complimented for it Iue Washington correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch remarks upon the fact that the President is slow about providing a place for Mr. Walter R. Henry, of Henderson, this State. A great many North Carolinians have remarked the same fact. Mr. Henry has performed enough service for the Democratic party to give him a good claim upon it. He has not only the merit, from a partisan's standpoint, which not only warrants, but suggests his recognition, but he has capacity lor public place, and it is a trifle dis couraging to party workers to see him i.i 1 t-i - ovenooKeu wnwe party lavors go to undeservers. It is high time his claims had due attention Charlotte Observer. SENATOR RANSOM HOSOREH. A dispatch from Washington under date of the 7th, says : In the absence of Vice-President Stevenson and of Senator Harris, President pro tempore of the Senate, Secretary Cox called the Senate to order and asked what its further pleasure was. Thereupon Mr. Gorman offered a resolution directing that " in the absense of the Vice-President and the President pro tempore, Mr. M. W. Ransom, a Senator from the State of North Carolina, be, and he hereby is, chosen President pro tempore of the Senate." The resolution was agreed to, and Mr. Ransom, escorted by Mr. Black burn, walked to the Secretary's desk, where the oath of office was adminis tered to him by Mr. Morrill, the oldest member of the Senate. In taking the chair, Senator Ransom said : Senators : I thank you sincerely for this expression of your confidence. But it is due to myself to say that imme diately on the return of the distinguished Senator from Tennessee, who has been elected President pro tempore of the Senate, I shall ask to be relieved from this position, and that that Senator, who has discharged his duties as pre siding officer with so much ability, and with so much satisfaction to the Senate and countrv, hhall be retained in the place."

J11 The Beiimiiifj Of a new year, when the winter season of close confinement is only half gone, many find that their health begins to break down, that the least exposure threatens sickness. It is then as well as at all other times, and with people even in good health, that the following facts should be remembered, namelv : that Hood's Sarsanaiilla leads everything in the way of medicines ; that it accomplishes the greatest cures in me world ; lias the largest sale in the world, and requires the largest building in the world devoted exclusively to the prepara tion of the nroiwietarv medicine. Does not this conclusively prove, if you are sick, that Hood's Sarsaparilla is the medi cine lor you to take v AS TO MR. HANI ELS' RESIGNATION. Mr. W. W. Scott, writing from Washington to his paper the Lenoir Topic, last week, says this concerning a rumor of which we had already heard : The North Carolinians in Washing ton have read with regret the announce ment in the newspapers that Mr Josephus Daniels, Chief Clerk of the Interior Department, contemplates re signing his office at an early day for the nurnose of returning to Raleigh and taking personal charge of t Neivs and Observer, ot which he is editor and whose policy he directs from here, not to speak of the great amount of editorial work he does for the paper. It may be stated that this step has not been positively decided upon, though the chances are decidedly on the side of his going back to R'leigh. Mr. Daniels will go to Raleigh to-morrow for a stay of a week or ten days. If he should resign he will do so much to the regret of Secretary Smith and of the hosts of friends, in stations high and humble as well, whom he has attached to him during his wise and efficient manage ment of the important office which he fills. It is my opinion, shared with many others, that he can be of greater service to North Carolina by remain ing in Washington for the next two years than he can by returning to Raleigh. A crisis is at hand in the affiirs of the Southern Passenger Association. A meeting is to be held in New York on the 15th for the purpose of deciding whether it shall live or die. Lvery road now in the Association has served notice of withdrawal and it is likely that the organization will go to pieces. The object for which "the ssociation was formed was to have uniformity in passenger and freight rates on all Southern railroads and to prevent the cutting of prices. Every thing was regulated by a commission and all the roads were bound by its action. If the organization is dissolved, as is likely, each railroad will make its own prices and a cutting of rates may be expected. Exchange. Organized activity is the most effective, if not the the only means by which common good can be effected. Fhe realization of this fact led to the organization in August, 1892,31 More- head City, N. C, of the Commercial and Industrial Association ot North Carolina. The expressed purpose of the Association was to urge before the law-making power of the State such enactments, and changes in existing enactments, as experience in business and efforts toward general develop ment could suggest as advisable ; also to urge and aid as far as possible the promotion of such practicable meas ures as would result in securing for towns and business enterprises the cheapest possible fuel, water, lights and transportation facilities. A lurther and principal object of the Association is an allayment of all petty jealousies so that the people of the State might work together for fostering manulac turing interests and otherwise develop ing the resourcesof the Commonwealth. Some principal results of the efforts of the Association thus far have been beneficial changes in the insurance laws; the passage of a banking and financial measure to be operative when the 10 per cent, tax on State bank cir culation shall have been repealed, which measure was pronounced by the New York Journal of Commerce to be the best one ever formulated ; the creation of a sentiment favoring muni cipal control of lighting systems and water supplies, &c. Matters of much importance affecting the agricultural and commercial interests of the State demand the attention of good citizens ptiffarpd in these nursuits. Whatever 0-0- . mav be best and most needed can be more clearly determined by general discussion and interchange of opinion hnn otherwise, and a nresentation of - - j 1 such opinion, as may be arrived at by this method, to the law-making power of the State may result advantageously. That the work of the Association may be continued and some matters which have been undertaken hereto fore by it may be completed, I hereby, with the advice and consent of the Executive Committee, call a meeting of the North Carolina Commercial and Industrial Association to be held in Raleigh on Wednesday, January 16 180;. Members of the Association Are resnectfullv ured to take note of -"'I J o this call.

I consider a human soul without education like marble in the quarry, which shows none ot its inherent beau ties, until the skill of the polisher fetches out the colors, makes the sur face shine, and discovers every orna mental cloud, spot, and vein that runs through the body of it. Education after the same manner, when it works upon a noble mind, draws out to view every latent virtue and perfection, which without such helps are never able to make their appearance. Joseph Addison. NORTH CAROLINA'S GOOD SHOW ING. We have not yet seen the annual report of the auditing officers of that State, but it seems to be conceded that North Carolina did well during the year just closed. That State, like our own, has wonderful capacities, which only need to be fully developed to make it one ot the leading Common wealths in the South. Our sister State, too, may become a competitor of ours in furnishing a great part of the world with oysters. The Wilmington Messenger says: If the oyster industry was prosecuted with the wisdom and industry that distinguish little Conneticut, in a few years the oyster product would be worth millions to the people. You can go into a county that was erected in 1746 and ride from its county seat for twenty miles in one direction without passing through cleared land, but through forests of oak and hickory and black jack and elm and so on. Its fisheries can be made still more profitable and its mines as vet are only partially developed. Let North Carolinians stick by the State and unite in making it great in educa tion, in material prosperity, and even more advanced in religion. There are to-day no less than 450,000 members of churches, we suppose Richmond Times. Sick people don't want to be bothered with preparing the medicine they take. Bad enough we must take it.

A Proposition to Economize by Cut ting Down all Salaries Over $1,000. editor gold Leaf: No govern ment can be successfully administered (matters not by whom controlled) whose expenditures are greater than its reve nues. Tle same principle is applicable to all trades and enterprises, whether mercantile, agricultural, mechanical, or any other interests. When this principle is violated then conies disas ter. Such is the couditiou of the Uuited States Government at present. It is like a ship on the strong ocean without helm, chart or compass, tossed on the boisterous billows helpless, sub ject to piratical crafts ready to possess and loot her. It is evident to all. Congress has for years appropriated millions of dollars to objects totally unnecessary, which could easily have been dispensed with, uuntil the linancial affairs of the Gov ernment were iu a better condition. For years the campaign, cry of all parties has been, "Cut down expen ses !"' aud any number of pledges have been made to the people which remain unfulfilled. Did these patriots mean it? We say not. W;hile the cry lor reduction of Government expenses is being constantly made, are these wide mouth, professional politicians willing to share in the sacrifice ? Are Senators and Representatives willing to have their salaries reduced from $5,000 to $2,500? Is the President willing to have his salary of $50,000 reduced to the original presidential salary of $20,- 000.-' Are others holding lucrative ollices in all departments of the Gov ernment, for the sake of placing the Government on a solid financial basis, willing to submit to a reduction ofsala riesl' Is there a Senator or Represen tative iu the present Congress who possesses patriotism aud grit sufficient to introduce resolutions looking to these reductions? We believe there is not one who has the courage to do so. m 1 . j - .ine writer may misiudge and un derrate the patriotism of the members of that honorable body, if so, he will apologize lor the misconception, yet the country desires to see works as well as theory and faith. Now, if there be one member of Congress who is willing to make a personal sacrifice for the general good, by which expenses of the Government can be reduced, let him show to the world and to the peo ple he is willing to make it, thereby proving that amidst all the demoraliza tion aud corruption at the Capitol there is still virtue in the old land yet. Another thing to be noticed is this, for years it has been the custom of Con gress to appropriate sums of money to aid defeated, sore-headed candidates to contest the election. of their opponeuts wtio hold the certificate of election 11 me asK, noes me constitution au thorize Congress to take the people's money and put it to such a use? Is it just that tlie public money should thus be squandered ? Is it not inviting sore heads to make these contests? Not so much for the seat they pretend to claim uui lor mis appropriation which so well pays them. If a defeated candi date knows his opponent is unlawfully elected, let him produce proof with the destinct understanding that no such appropriation will be made by Con gress, and that he must bear his own expenses. My word for it, there would be but few such, if any, they would be few aud far between, thereby saviug i 1 1 1 , . . inucn uouuie and expense. What is the duty ot Congress under the present existing circumstauces ? First, enact a law by which a safe circulating me dium shall be so increased as to be sufficient for the transaction of the business of the country. Second, re duce the expenses of the Government iu every conceivable manner, including cutting down the salaries of the Presi dent, members of Congress, and iu all departments of the Government where the salary is over $1,000. By this general reduction of salaries, aud other expenses for useless purposes, millions would be saved and it would not be long before the revenues would exceed the expenditures, and the Government would be placed on a sound financia basis.

Merry New Year's Party. Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Shannon on Thurs day evening, January 3rd, gave their daughter, Leila Alma, a "New Year's Party." Misses Ethel and Lorene Dorsey, Julia Cooler, Mattie Lehman, Willie and Closs Parker, Lela Horner, Mabel Young, Rosa Kerner, Masters I). Y. Cooper, Jr., James Horner, Walter Hart, Sam Watkins, Jr., Charley Cooper, M. Lehman, Hugh Da vis, Willie and Eddie Shaw, and Willie Wortham were the "little ones'' made happy by notes requesting the honor of their presence. "Stealing partners" to music was the favorite game and a pretty picture it was to see the miniature men and women imitating their elders. Just before supper was announced the children drew numbers to see who should win the prizes. The first was a basket of candy, won by Master M. Lehman ; the "booby"' was won by .Miss Closs Parker. As it was a ten cent peice, the children "builded better than they knew" when they called it the "boodle prize." The little guests were breathless with delight when they entered the dining room and saw the table filled with every thing that could please a child's taster jellies, candies, nuts, fruits, bigcakesand little cakes, and grown people to wait on .them and see that they had all they wanted. The pretty Japanese doylies delighted all eyes and a wee one 'asked, " May I take it home? " The last bit of happi ness their hearts could hold was added when the host and hostess gave to each a doily and an orange " to take home." When the grown people came for the children they were entertained by Mr. and Mrs. Shannon with refreshments suited to older and more sophisticated palates. Little Mis Shannon received her guests and devoted herself to their entertain ment just as a young lady should. She had asked to "assist her ' Misses Lizzie Jenkins, Ethel Dorsey and Jessica Smith. Each of the wee people, even to the baby boy, Ltiarhe, went to the hostess and told her: "Frn much obliged toyou, Fve had such a good time."

C, Jan. 1st, 1893. Editor Gold Leaf : As you published a part of a private letter to you some time since, I take th, my first oppor tunity, to give you one for publication, if vou desire to do so. My natnral inclination is to defend the weak, and correct a wrong. My impres sions of Washington are very different from what they were before 1 came here to live; for it is the general impression away irorn nere, tuat it is one 01 iue niornt corrupt cities on the continent. I do not mean to say but what it has its share, but certainly not more than other cities in proportion to its population. and especially when we consider the great number of people of every class aua character, who are attracted here on accouut of its being tlie seat of general government. 1 have round astnngton a most de lightful city tolive in; its people pleasant, polite aud agreeable, and fair and square in their dealings. They give you down weight and good measure, and the prices of the necessaries of life are much cheater than I expected to hnd them. House rent is high, but when we take into con sideration tueircomfort and convenience, they are no higher than they are 111 Hen derson. There seems to be a church on almostevery square, and on Suuday they are well attended. On attending St. Patricks (Catholic) church, the largest in the city, we were very kindly invited by a Mr. N. T. Taylor to a seat in his pew, and I heard a most eloquent sermon by Dr. Stafford, considered the finest pulpit orator in the city. 1 lie Church ot the Covenant (Presby terian) is a model of beauty aud comfort. I attended it at night, aud the service was a novelty to me. After a hymn was sung and prayer offered, the pastor stated that the preacher or teacher of the present day would get up and preach their sermons, aud if any of the congre gation did not understand everything, no one would ask lor an explanation, while our Savior in His teachings was constantly asked to explain by His disciples and hearers. Just then an usher came from the entrance with a small basket containing written questions upon passages ot scripture, asKea ny rue congregation and deposited in this little basket as they entered the church. 1 liese questions were taken one at a time and read aloud by the minister and then ex plained. There was a great number and variety, and those that were not ex plained duringthe time allotted to service were kept for the next time, and I will assure you it was both entertaining and instructive. This is the church which the President and his family attend; and to give you an idea of the wealth of the congregation, I will relatea circumstance I heard the other day. After the church was completed, (and it is comparatively new) the minister said he wanted to have it dedicated, but did not care to have it done as long as there was any debt upon it, the balance of which was only $27,000, and in a few moments the entire amount was raised by the congregation. Washington as a city in my humble opinion has been badly slandered. I can say for it what I can't say for any other I ever visited. 1 have been pretty much all over it now, aud have never yet seen anv outward sign of vice or immorality, The government employes were given holiday from yesterday at twelve until to-morrow, and as we were leaving the Pension building about a dozen gentle men collected near the fountain in the center of the court, and sung " The Land of Liberty," and it was grand. As soon as they finished they were called on for another, and theystruck up that favorite old hymn "Nearer My God, to lhee, and as they did every head in that throng of l,o00 was uncovered. 1 hey then gave us the "Doxology," and we quietly dis persed. At twelve o'clock Christmas eve night I was gently awakened by the ringing of the chimes, aud last night at twelve o'clock I was suddenly aroused by, it seemed to me, the blowing of everysteam whistle in and near the city, and this morning when I asked our friend, Mr. Ellsworth what in the world was the matter last night, he said, " Why, they were just blowing out the old year and blowing in the new ;" and it was such a blow that this morning there wasn't a piece of cloud to be seen. I was down this morning to eall on Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland, but found so many there for the same purpose, that I came back home. All of us "Tar Heels," attended a re ception given by Mr. and Mrs. Josephus Daniels this evening, and it was indeed a delightful one, and I am Bure Mrs. D. is Josephus' Josephine. II. II. B.

The Farm Journal is now in its eighteenth year, with over 200,000 subscribers, giving it a round million of readers. It circulates every where from Maine to Washington and from Michigan to Texas, its editors and contributors are sleeves-rolled-up men and women, and it is surprising how bo much valuable and helpful information can be crowded into so small a space. The very best people take it because it is clean, honest, earnest, and progressive, with no ax to griud, or hobby to ride. It is for the farmer, first, last, and all the time.
