f i ' t if I: A 0 " 4 t -I : ,1 . 1 1 II".. CALLED " VINELAND ! BECAUSE THERE ARE NO VINES THERE, BUT THEY'LL GROW. A BU Which if Skillfully Managed, with I'atience and Pluck can oe cnrrieu uui. Special Correspondence of The Clvronicle. Manly, N. C, March 11. I write you my views concerning Vineland, hoping that I do not presume too much when I say that a residence of nearly three years here, during which time I have taken con siderable observations, with the results which would accrue from study of health rosorts, extending over a good part of my life, enable me to speak, and speak practi cally, of the merits of this country, to those affected with throat and pulmonary diseases. Vineland is situated near Manly, N. C. , on the Kaleigh and Augusta Air-Line Railroad. It consists of a tract of land of 800 acres, of a moderately rolling charac ter, traversed by a few small streams of the very purest of water. The soil is of clean sand of considerable depth, thereby adding to the healthfulness of the section, as this readily absorbs any amount of rain fall, and does away with the formation of pools of water which would become stag nant and breed disease. By looking at Prof. Kerr's last map you will see that this location is exactly on the top of the water-shed, between Cape Fear and Pee Dee Rivers, being at an elevation of GOO feet above sea level. This matter of elevation here is of no small consequence in a sanitary point of view, as the height is not too great to cause any difficulty ;of hreathing by those in the advanced stages of pulmonary diseases (a fact which has been fatal, at least to the patient if not to the location, of some other health re sorts), and yet it is high enough to be far above any streams of consequence in the surrounding country. By referring to the map you will also see that Vineland is lo cated in the midst of the great turpentine pine belt, extending from Virginia to Florida. Where the long-leaf pine exists, ozone is generated largely, and it has been demonstrated that persons suffering with throat and pulmonary diseases are much at'mosp benefited when living in an impregnated witn tms gas. .Malaria is almost unknown here." Again referring you to the map you would see that we should not travel very far in a direct line south before we would come in contact with the Gulf Stream, with its accompa niment of warm air from the tropics, which being borne to us by the south winds makes our winters here so comfort able. Comparing our past mild winter here, with its one snow of only three inches (but two days) with the snow and ice-bound people of the Northern States, and we do but extend charity when we say to them, come ! Vineland contains a park of 50 acres, which is being beautifully arranged, with its drives, obscure paths, beautiful small lakes, for rowing purposes and the like, and fountains and observatories. "Within its precincts is a very valuable mineral spring, calybeate in nature, second to none perhaps of its kind in the Union. Within easy driving distance are the famous Jackson Springs, which are especially . adapted to the cure of dyspepsia in its different forms. Within half hour's drive is that wonderful natural curiosity called "Paint Hill," where is found an -unaccountable marl bed, with a deposit of rare fossils. ' Quantities of petrified wood, TTl-fVl YTlOTiir AfDT n!JVie7 !n TC JL.wm Tnmi'1 here. - 1 . te culture of silk, wuxch will be car fl on near by, will also prove of interest Northern people. Not the least of all f ire the church privileges, Baptist, Metho- ...jdist and Presbyterian churches all being adjacent. Jt or tnose wno love tne sport the forests abound in game of all de scriptions. When the railway from Richmond to Ridgeway is finished, (and I "believe it is nearly so) we will be within twenty-four hours travel of New York city. Therefore, when our efficient Signal Service shall warn the citizens of New York, and in deed the Middle and Eastern States, that thettrwsoadLJroris coming, they can pack their "Saratogas" ard hie them away to Vineland, where they can luxurate among the pines. After the blizzard shall have subsided, they can return again to the old routine of business, feeling much the better for having escaped its terrors, and thereby prolonged life. Trusting that the people of North Car olina may all interest themselves in the welfare of this enterprise, in which so many of our Northern people of feeble health can be benefited, I subscribe my self, Yours hopefully, G. II. Saddleson, M. D. The Carolinas for Protection. Gen. Roger A. Fry or cut quoted by the New York Tribune. Tilden will be nominated by acclama tion at the Chicago Convention. "Will he accept ? He will. And Hendricks ? That does not follow. There is no love lost be tween them. I should rather say Palmer, of Hlinois. A free trade plank ? No, nor "tariff for revenue only" either. The Democratic party is sick of growing leeks for home consumption. And they couldn't make the South swallow them. The Car olinas would bolt. The strongest "ticket M,tihg Republicans can meet us with would be Blaine and Lincoln. But it will be a ' close fight. Fowler's Seine-Tying Machine. '. " From the Elizabeth City Falcon. We believe this is the first seine-tying " - machine ever put up in North ' Carolina, - though the invention is by no means re cent.. There are thousands upon thous ands of yards of nets and seine sold to the fishermen of Eastern North Carolina '. every year. The money for the purchase of this has been , going to Baltimore and Boston and other places out of the State; jiow we thijik-ltYill stay at home, at least The Graded School "Boom." - From the New Berne Journal. . The trustees of the New Berne Academy have resolved to erect another school building, in order to accommodate the graded school children, and have appro priated the sum of four thousand dollars for the purpose, provided a similar amount can be obtained by priyate subscription.

LOVE STORIES. The Experience and Observation? of a Man Who Married a Rich Wife. For The Chronicle. I once had a notion to fall in love with a rich girl rich at least in comparison with me. She had inherited a good plant ation, and was in the country round about regarded very much as the "heiress" in a novel. Popular gossip connected her with all sorts of influential men some old, some young, but all rich or powerful in some way. So I concluded my pole would not reach those persimmons. I went courting around, trying to get myself to take an interest in more hum ble but in what would most likely be a more fitting and happy arrangement. I fortified myself firmly behind the theory that it is a humiliation to marry a rich girl. You would lose your independence, and people would point to you as the fel low who married for money, you know. And I tried to hate the very girl that I once tried to love and came near succeed ing. She seemed proud. I imagined that the fellows who "flew around'' her were foolish, rattle-brained "dudes." But the thing took a change somehow. I again conjured up an interest in the heiress. She was very kind a good girl, if only she was as poor as I was. Well, my senses gradually came to me. I mar ried the heiress, and instead of being the poor struggling wretch I should otherwise have been, I have leen a successful man. My advice is not to be a fool and avoid a girl because she happens to be rich. Democratic Bar'l Men. From the Boston Post. The treasurer of the National Demo cratic committee reports that every just claim against it, incurred during the cam paign of 1880, has been paid, and that there are $1,800 on hand to begin bill posting in 1884. The five heaviest con tributors to the campaign fund in 1880 were : SamT J. Tilden of New York, W. II. Barnum of Connecticut, WT. L. Scott of Pennsylvania, Henry B. Payne of Ohio, $51,000 40,000 43,000 20,000 31,000 V H- Payne of Ohio, Will be a Garden Some Iajr. Mr. Richard Lamb, an engineer, has made a survey of the Dismal Swamp for a land company, and reports that there are 14,000 acres, which could be made ac cessible at a cost of about $2.75 an acre. In less than fifty years this land will bring $100 an acre, if we have good progress in making our population dense and in im proving and extending and cheapening transportation. Then the man will be found down East who will prove by the Scriptures that the Garden of Eden was in the Dismal Swamp. Tilden in South Carolina. Mr. Tilden has not been popular in South Carolina since 1876. The Charles ton News and Courier said last week : "Tildon has not a ghost of a chance of obtaining the Democratic nomination, and if he were nominated he would not, in our opinion, carry South Carolina. Tilden is weak and cowardly, a plotter and still hunter. The Democracy need, not a mummy, however odorous, nor a memory, however sweet, but a manly man, who will make a manly fight in a manly way."

Petticoat Politics. The convention of women suffragists re cently in session at Washington appointed a committee to enquire of each of the nominees for the Presidency whether he is in favor of giving the ballot to wemen. They resolved to appeal to all women to work against the election of the candidate who opposes it. Is a Larger Pastorate in the State ? From the Winston Sentinel. Dr. Rondthaler, pastor of the Mora vian Church, Salem, has over one thou sand members and persons directly inter ested in that faith, under his pastoral su pervision.
