One of the sweetest ami most pa thetic of his poems was 1 hat deli ve: ed at the unveiling of the Confederate Soldier's monument in Staunton on the 'Jath of .'Sep tember, His most recent sialics have been delineations of Duukatd Life in the Valley of Virginia. He is not c usideretl a good criminal lawyer; his taste and talents do not tend to make him such, but he is tin able chan cery lawyer and has a way of impressing b.ifh judge and juty that he is honest in bis opinion, that be has reached his, con clusions from careful study of the ques tion, and that he has both law and justice on his side. His broad forehead, keen, piercing eye and thoughtful, dignified manner command attention and cause one to expect logic rather than levity and in formation rather than amusement. Every time I read anything from his pen I firnl my.seif wishing that he was not the lawyer that he really is and more of tie writer that his talents designed him to be. Thomas Nelson Page paid him a high compliment at a bauquet of literary men held in New York city, when he acknowl edged that whatever succtss or reputation he had attained was largely due to the aid and encouragement given him by Gordon. And while it is not generally known, it is nevertheless true, that the story, "Mars Chan," written by Page, and considered his best, was outlined by Gordon first and afterwards enlarged upon by Page. Mr. Gordon's time is always fully occu pied and his literary engagements are therefore filled, oftentimes, under trying circumstances. At present he is at work compiling for publication in book form, by Scribners, his dialect and other stories. This is but an imperfect outline of what was intended as a biographical sketch only.

At a re-union of ex-Confederates at Tarboro a few days ago Colonel Bridgers alluded to Wyatt in this connection, when Lieutenant Fleming begged leave to correct him by stating that the first man killed was from near Baltimore.

Being very busy :.s a commit teeman we dil not get iiclruice to hear him, but from what we were fold do nor hesitate it) say that everybody was pleased, and that ii was just such an address as might be expected to come from such an intelligent gentleman 0:1 such an occasion. Notwithstanding the inclemeucy of the weather that night, the people of Winston and Salt 1.1 seemed determined to show the Association their fuli appreciation of tlie Fair by giving them about as large a erowd this night as was present the night before, and the Salem Baud with their Orchestra again discoursed sweet niu.-t'c. The premi um lists were read out ami those entitled to premiums received the cash atai we hope that everybody was .satisfied, for we know that it was the desire of the respec tive committees to give satisfaction aud to show no partiality.
