on the door, n i;re:,t voice quickly
came forth from a blanket:

"That was a singular d -ath," said the

In a moment this gho-tly j.erson stood i

horse." His feet touched the floor. He '

j could he have been contined? I ap- j
j proached him with a quick pulse, I con- J
j less. But I was determined to -peak to j
I him. I passed by the side of the sin-
I gular rider and gazed at his features 1
The mouth was firmly shut, and the face j
seemed to be wrinkled in pain. I could !
not see him distinctly, because he was n ;
longer between me and the light. It oc- j
curreil to me that I was dreaming. What j
ooulu tln be w here was I: 1 ran over
quickly in thought the events of the p.ist
day, the place, the people, the prepara
tions for the hunt, and my visit to the gar
ret. It was all verj" plain. I was awake
and sane. The old wooden horse creaked
under every jump of the ghostly rider.
After every leap he groaned louder. This
exercise could not continue much longer, i
Ttic rider would become exhausted or t'te
" horse " would break down. He kept !
his gaze steadily in front and continued j
to dodge unseen obstructions. I deter
mined to keep .-dent a moment longer.
Then I -tepped one pace in urer. Tucn
another. One long step more and I
-iiou'.d be directly in front of him atid be

should s ireiy see m then. I took my

llobinson and others may feel that the
people are satisfied. I do not agree with
them. The chances are now about equal
in this senatorial district. The election of
'84 (National) may mobilize the part 3- suf
ficiently to carry the State ticket, but it is
not certain. If the people of Clay, Gra
ham, and Cherokee could be satisfied that
the W. N. C- would be built at once, every
obstacle would be removed. This is the
only difficulty the Democracy has to over
come. Of the two parties the Republicans
are the more active, and strong ellorts will
lie made to capture this Congressional dis
trict. The situation to them will he most
favorable if the Democrats sue not assured
by the most positive measures that the V.
X. C. will be built without delay.
Let the Democrats do this, and so far as
these three Western counties are con
cerned their majorities will be larger than
ever.

C. 1 11. in the Concord Times.
Some j'ears ago the mortality of children
in Charleston, S. C, was so great that
some of the German citizens concluded to
leave the city. A society was organized,
and every member paid annually into the
common fund so many dollars. They ad
vertised ami purchased a tract of land in
Pickens District. Surveyor.- parcelled out
the farms from to 200 acres, and the
town of Walhalla was laid out as it exh-ts
at present. A plot was then sent to
Charleston, and the property was distrib
uted without trouble or dissatisfaction.
When the citizens of Walhalla, thirty
3-ears ago, settled that section, land was
worth about $2 an acre ; now it is sold at
$'25, and its value is still increasing. Then
it was thought nothing could be raised but
corn, vegetab'es and the cereals; it has
been established since that cotton may be j the peculiar
cultivated to advantage.
Examples of this kind may lead readers
to reilect and to work for siuular results.
I repeat that the judicious prea ling of
such news is the best mean to promote
immigration.
unprewus death. An' dar's been quair
Minn's bout de ole cubby since that time."
I don't suppose," the Colonel re
marked, as we walked back to the house,
" that if ten thousand cases of old men's
dying after a night of hard drinking were
explained to that negro, he would ever
quite believe that oh' Mose died from a nat
ural cause." lint the old negro's death. I
remember, was a somewhat startling oc
currence. Of course it begat a thousand
new ghost stories in the imagination of
the negroes, and peopled the garret with
another generation of apparitions."
The Colonel himself took a candle and
went with me to my room. We walked
lightly pa-t t he door of theb"d-room down
stairs w here the old Squire slept. I heard
a groan as I passed the door and rebuked
in self for having stepped so heavily into
the uncarpeted hall. Up stairs the Colo
nel pointed up the second flight of steps
and told me it led to the garret where old
Mose died. We entered the quaint bed
room over the parlor. "If you hear any
ghosts to-night, rouse the castle. I'll call
you in time for thu race. Good night ! "
and he left me.
The shudder that I felt when I pulled
oil' my coat was cau-ed by the cool air, of
course ; hut it made me conscious of the
"quairness" of the place. The story of
the death of old Mose kept coming into
my head. But now th quaint room was
a new object of antiquarian and curious
interest I took down a piece of hair-work
from the mantel-piece, which was so high
that I could hardly reach it, and read the
name of somebody's dear dead aunt. And
this is a ghastly memento of that worth'
and ancient lady V The rest of her locks
are under the broom-grass, no doubt. It's
a frightful thing dead people's hair. I
looked about the big room for more cheer
ful objects, and saw a few old pictures ou
the walls, which suggested revolutionary
times: and mv attention was struck bv
appearance of the ceiling.
and m a moment lay ueau. lie i-'ore a
wig in the da time, and Iliad not recog
nized him.
There was no longer any mystery about
old Mose's death. The ghost that slew
him had slain himself.

The State from which I come, in all her
pace and progress and everything that
goes to make a people happy, stands bet
ter than ever before. Her agricuhu.al
and nianufaeturiiigexnorts are on a steady
increase. Many factories have lately been
erected, and we now consume twice ;is
much cotton as we did live years ;r.
Prosperity and content abound. What
ever the people of my State can do for the
good of the nation they will gladly and
proudly do. The spirit of the fathers has
fallen upon us. In days gone by there
were the most intimate relations between
Massachusetts and Carolina, and we de
ire a return of the old friendliness. We
understand you have too much money and
too ireat a population, and we woul 1 re
lieve you aiding ourselves, yet doing wed

the University opened August .'11, and there
are now more than 170 students on the
roll. Sixty countl's in Xorth Carolina are

are new arrivals almost daily.
On the 15th, work was bee un -,n the Swain
