Wilmington Messenger. The equestrian-statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee will probably be unveiled in Rich mond, Va , ou December 5th. The statue is now being cast in bronze in Paris, and will be shipped about the last of October. North Carolina ought to send at least ten thousaud men to witness this doing honor to the greatest of Southern soldiers. . The greatest man is he, who chooses the right with invincible resolution; who resists the sorest temptations from within -and without; who bears the heaviest bur--deus cheerfully; who is calmest in storms most fearless under menace and frowns, and whose reliance on truth, on virtue :&nd on God, is most unfaltering. ChanniA. The Twrt City Daily has published an -illustrated edition of 10,000 copies. It is . an interesting paper and gives many points about the. advantages of the go ahead twin-city. Four thousand copies of the special edition were mailed direct to par ties who had expressed a desire to come Suth. The Chronicle hopes that many of them ma,y be induced tocome South to .the twinrciti'. - mj-- Tue High Point Enterprise prints a queer letter. Phillip Cole, of Jouesboro, Tenn., writee to his brother, George, and tells him that h;s mother has heard that he (George) had been hung for shooting a man, and requests him to write and say "whether it are so or not as mother is un easy." George cm not be found, and if he has been hung it is probable his brother will wait a long time for an answer. The Monroe Register is a bright now weekly newspaper published at Monroe by Messrs. M. A. Underwood and Geo. M. Beasf.ley. It announces that its special mission wi-11 be to labor lor the promotion of ad that pertains to the highest inter ests of the people and the upbuilding of Monroe and Union counties. Its first number indicates that it will fulfill its mission and deserve well of the people among whom it is published. Tue Goldsboro Argus has entered upon its teuth semi-annual volume. The read ers of the Chronicle know the high esti mate we nlace noon the Argus. Although - 4 not the biggent daily in the State it has the best liue of advertisements and is a favorite exchange at this oflice. Mr Robinson writes eleg uit English, and only a few davs ago we read in his paper a de scrim ion of a vounz lady's singing that for elegance of style and beauty of diction could not be surpassed. . The Democrats will fight the National Election law. Congressman Mills, of 'iVias ha-s been interviewed. He takes substantially the sauu position as that taken by Mil. Oates, whose interview we published last week. Mr. Mills says: You may depend upon it that the rules of the House will not be changed by the Reiniblican maioritv in any essential feature. Nor will we permit any of the proposed legislation looking to a control by Congress of the elections, for we see vito i.luinlv what the nurooso of that is. The same c in be said of the contested eases that will come up before Congress. We io nut t, roitfi.se to let the Republican ma jority be further increased ad libitum by throwing out Democratic memuers, as According to the New York Evening Sun, Long Island can boast of a farm which is operated entirely by the labor of insane people. It is known as the Islip farm, and 250 lunatics are employed upon it. It was a wilderness a few years ago, but has been brought to a high state of cultivation. Grain, fruits and flowers are grown upon it, and the men engaged in their production are said to take a deep interest in their work. They were sent there from city institutions by the Com missioners of Charities and Correction, and the experiment is declared to have proved a pronounced success. In his opening sermon before the Epis copal Convention in New York Bisuop Whipple made the following reference to "The Negro in the Church": "We have some problems peculiar to ourselves. Twenty-five years ago four millions of slaves received American citizenship. The nation owes them a debt of gratitude. During all the horrors of our civil war they were the protectors of Southern wo men and children. Knowing the failure of their masters would be the guarantee of their freedom, there was not one act that master or slave might wish to blot. We ought not, and God will not, forget it. To-day there are eight millions. They are here to stay. They will not be disfranchis ed. Through them Africa can be redeem ed. They ought to be our fellow-citizens in the Kingdom of God. In a great crisis of missions the Holy Ghost sent Philip on a long journey to preach Christ to one mau of Ethiopia. The same blessed Spirit of God calls us in the love of Christ to carry the Gospel in the church to the mil lions of colored citizens of the United States." The Washington Post has caused a com motion in Washington. Its charge is that examination papers were stolen and sold by a clerk of t he Civil Service Commission. The Post says that a lady who went to a teacher in Washington for instruction, preparatory to taking the examination, was f urnished by the teacher for a consid eration with a copy of the questions subse quently asked. These questions, it says, were in the hand writing of Mr Campbell, one of the clerks to the commission and a brother-in-law of Commissioner Lyman. The matter was brought by Commissioner Op.erly to Mr. Lyman's attention, and the published account says that the next morning Commissioner Lyman told Mr. Oijerly that nis (Lyman's; wife was per fectly overcome; that a public exposure would kill her, and that Campbell was as penitent as he- could be. Afterwards the clerk who sold the ex amination paper was promoted. The moral of this is that no public ofti cer ought to appoint a kinsman to a posi tion under him. lie will be too ready to opver np his wrongs FOR THE SOLDIERS' HOME. Raleigh, N. C. Oct. 5, 18-?0. W. C. Strosach, Secretary Confederate Veterans" Association of North Car olina: My Dear Sir: I have long been of the opinion that we ought to have small, comfortable homes for our aged, infirm and disabled Confederate soldiers, located in the different stctions of the State. I have on the Raieigh & Gaston Railroad at Ridgeway, situated in a 5 (live) acre square, a 30 (thirty) roomed, Mansard roofed, brick building, with long porticos, &c, which, I think, would be suitable for one of these "Homes." If your associa tion should be of the same opiniou, after examination of the property, and will use it for that purpose, they may have the free use of it for 25 years; or as long as used for a Confederate Soldiers' Home. We may not be able to give la.rge pensions and maintain in affluence these aged, in firm and disabled soldiers, who risked all and have suffered so much for the defence of what they believed to be right, but we can give them such care and comforts as will make their lives more pleasant and convince tbem that they have not been de serted by their old comrades, who have been more fortunate in the hard battle of life, which has been so manfully fought under adverse circumstances, since the final furling of the Confederate flag at Appomattox. By united and continued effort we can, without abundant wealth, cheer the declining years of the survivors of the rapidly thinning ranks of these old soldiers and raise them tar enough above pinching cold and guawiug hunger to let them see the bow of promise which is now throwing the light of hope over the whole of our loved sunny Southern land. Hop ing that at an early day we may have sev eral of these "Soldiers Homes," I am Yours very truly, J. M. Heck. Owing to a defect in the deck of the Mansard roof I have engaged Mr. J. C. S. Lumsden, of this city, to re-roof that part of the house. There are also some other improvements, made necessary by this defect, which I will have made at an early day so that the house may be ready to turn over to the association by the first or middle of next month, as the parties in the house agree to vacate by the first of November next.

The Exhibits Will be Well Worth a Vis itAll the North Carolina World and its W ile and Daughters Ought to Come. When the next issue of the State Chron icle reaches its readers the 29th State Fair will have opened its gates to the pub lic and it desires now to recall to the farmers of the State the fact that it is their Fair and that they are really inter ested in its character and results. It is not more than justice to the present man agement to say that its aim has been to make it a part of the Agricultural interests of the State. The amusements, horse jockeying and the usual but comparatively worthless parts of such congregations of people have been in a large measure thrown out or subordinated to the higher idea of making it an illustrative object lesson. The various organizations of farmers in the State have been invited to compete in a friendly rivalry for prizes worth con tending for in a money point of view and more largely so as evidence of successful work. We cannot say how many Allian ces, or Granges, or Clubs will avail them selves of the generous offers of the Society and will show the farming world what organized farmers are doing. We hope and believe that these exhibits alone will be worth a visit to the State Fair. It is just to the railroads to say that they have been liberal and accommodat ing in their arrangements with the Fair management. Not only have they put the passenger travel within the means of every body, but they are hauling the ex hibits free and have made such accom modating schedules as to make it possible for North Carolina folks living at consid erable distance from the capital to leave home day light, visit the Fair and return to sleep in their own b ds. This looks like progress. But ail les-on and no play time makes even the farmers dull folks and so visitors can rely upon a variety f nonsen sical things to make them lively, and curi osities that will interest them. The marriage of one of the Alliances' sons in their cherished cotton bagging is to be a real thing It illustrates the deep interest that the working farmers have taken in the great tight that they hae just won. It is worth coming to see it. But it is useless to go into detail. The Fair is upon us ami it i- going to be a good tair, a big Fair, a very big Fair. and the Chronicle's readers, the world, its wife and daughters must come and see it. THE I' EAT I" RE OF THE STATE FAIR THE .YIARRl.Vt.E. On Tuesday, October loth, at 12 rn , sharp, the marriage of Mr. W. M. Bale man, of Washington county, to Miss Jose phine Knowles will take place in the judge's stand in front of the grand stand. The groom will be clad in a full dress suit of cotton bagging, and the bride in a dress of appropriate design and finish, trimmed in fringe of cotton bagging. The bride and groom will be accompa nied by a full corps of other attendants dressed in like attire. Mr. S. Otho Wilson, Vice President of the Wake County Alliance, will be Mar shal and will also be dressed in cottoa bagging. The bridal party wiil. at 11:30 leave the boarding place of the bride on Hillsboro street, and the patty will pro ceed to the Fair grounds iu carriages and will arrive at the south entrance at 11: 0 and proceed to the stand, which will be appropriately decorated. It is desired that everv Alliance-man and lady, as well as their friends, will form a double column from the south gate to the stand, and, as the last carriage passes, fall iu line two abreast and escort the party to the stand, where the impres sive ceremony will be performed by the Chaplain ot the btate Alhai.ci. After the ceremony the presentation of presents will follow. It is only necessary that the public, and especially the Alliance, should know of the event, to show tneir appreciation ot the allegianc9 of the couple to the cause by the presentation of suitable and appro priate presents. It is believed that the largest crowd of thr? week will bo at the Fair on Tuesday, and this event alone is sufficient to repay the people for their attendance. S.

LYNCHING IN M ORG ANTON. THE PEOPLE OF III' RK E RESTIVE CNDERTHE PUBLIC CRITICISM. The Evidence Taken Before the Magis trates in the Preliminary Trial of Franklin Mack. Special Cor. of State Chronicle. Moiu;anton, N. C, Oct. 7, 1SS0. I en close, copied from the last Morgan ton Star, the evidence taken in the Stack ease be fore the committing Magistiates, together with a statement from J. A. Perry. Your Burke county readers would esteem it a favor if you will publish these enclosures. The community at large deplores t he lynch ing, but the people here are growing res tive under the attempt that is being made by certain journals to single-out Burke and damn it with all the fcius of its neighbor counties as well as its own. Above ail they do not wish to have added to ail that has been said and written about them, the statement that Stack was innocent. He was positively identified by good men, the motive was clearly shown, and the attempt to prove au alibi before the justices was abandoned by his counsel, for the very good reason that he was unable to give any account of his whereabouts ou the day of the homicide. The Eiideuce Taken. As some of the State papers are laboring very hard to make it appear thar t'aie was not a particle of evidence to m p.i eate Frauk Stack with the killing of hob ert Parker, at Rutherford College, we give below the evidence as it came, fiom the lips of the witness's on oath, at the preliminary trial before Esqs.

To the !.i lioi; of the Chronicle: As a gn-at deal has been said and writ ten a1. out the Stack case, and especially as to tin evidence adduced by the prosecution on li.- point of the indentitlcation of the prisoner, I desire to make a statement of a circumstance connected with the case, which, as yet, has never been made pub lic The bench warrant issued for the ar rest of Franklin Stack was put into my hands for ex.cution, and in company with Howell Han is, of Hickory, I went to Un ion c uj!v for the accused. At Monroe I met Sh.rilf Borne, of Uninn county, the night before the arrest was made, made known to him the object of my visit, and r. quested hini to-meet me the next morn ii.'g an ! go ui'h me to take Stack. The Sin riil' said fie would go with me, and told me that Siack was expecting to be arrest ed.

I consent ed ro this arrangement, and gave the Sheriff a minute description of the cloth ing described by the witnesses who saw the supposed assassin in Burke and Cataw ba counties, and told him that the cloth ing described by these witnesses corres ponded exactly with the suit worn by Stack at the Mount Holly Fair, which he (Stack) visited two days before the assas sination, and from which point it was charged that he came to Rutherford Col lego. I told the Sheriff to be sure and bring the suit worn by Stack to the Mount Holly Fair, and endeavored to impress him with the importance of the matter. "i he Sheriff said he would bring the cloth ing. Harris and I remained in Monroe lii.til ii.- Srierdl" returned with Stack about twelve or usie o'clock that day.

Editor. A new iail is building at Elizabeth City. The cotton crop in Catawbi county is very good, says the Newton Enterprise. The Grand Lodge of Good Templars will meet at Potecasi, Northampton county, December 4th and 5th. The Enterprise says that one thresh ing machine at that place threshed 20,803 bushels of grain this past season. . . . .One firm in Winston, as the result of a part of their season's operation, shipped from that place the past week 150,000 pounds of dried fruit. The Chronicle is glad to hear that Davidson College has opened well. There are as many students on the ground as were enrolled during the whole of last year. .... At the civil service examination at Goldsboro, Thursday of last week, there were forty-eight applicants for positions as route agents. Tweuty-eix of them were colored. A young man from Henderson re cently rode a bicycle from that place to Newark, N. J. The distance is 533 miles, and he made it in 16 days, at a total cost of $13.00.

An election has been called by the town commissioners to be held Nov. 7th, when the question of issuing town bonds, to the amount of $3,000 for the purpose of building a town hall will be voted on. The bonds are to run twenty years, aud no part of the principal will have to be paid under ten years. Louisburg Times. .... It is learned to-day that Bingham's School and Davis' School, of LaG range, will attend the Centennial Celebration here in November in a body. It is to be hoped that Oak Ridge Institute, Thomp son's School, of Siler City, Fremont Military- Institute and the other military schools of the State will do likewise. Fayetteville Observer. . . . .Henry Blount saw the young circus woman Miss Josie Demott (who was mar ried at Selma and wouldn't live with her husband) ride and he says: "The bareback riding of Miss Josie Demott was as grace ful as wreathing 6moke, and made her seem like the poetry of motion." She may be a success as "the poetry of motion," but she is a huge f jdlure as a wife. . . . .Fayetteville is enthusiastic over the approaching Centennial and the enthusi asm is spreading. A few nights ago Mr. J. 8. Carr, the Chief Marshal, went to Fayetteville on business connected with the Centennial. He was met at the depot by a brass band. An address of welcome was delivered by Henry L. Cook, Esq., and Mr. Carr responded. A general reception followed. 'Rah for the Centennial. The Press and Carolinian says of the Hickory Fair, held last week: "Every body knows it was a success and we do not care to coDceal the fact. It was a success beyond our most sanguine expec tations. We said we were going to have a big fair but who expected such a crowd and so much fun? We want to convey an idea of what the Hickory Fair was to our many readers but we don't wield a pen that can write the words." Prof. L. E. Shuford, of McDowell county, is out in a card in which he says that the charge against him of a nameless crime is untrue and malicous, and that the prosecuting party withdrew the char ges because he knew they could not be substantiated. He refers to the Mayor of Marion and to Rev. M. L. Kaylor or any other honorable man in Marion. We hope that this is so. We would not like to believe that there could exist any where in the State such a travesty upon justice as was represent d in the statement that Prof. Shuford was let off upon his prom ise to leave the county. . . : . Among the enterprises that Mur phy seems destined to have, is a mammoth coffin manufactory, which, is to be a branch factory of the Nashville, (Tenn.) Burial Case Manufactory, which is said to be among the largest in the country. Mr. G. A. Karsch, the general manager of this company, has for several days been investigating the advantages of locating a factory at this place and has come to the conclusion that Murphy's prospect of be comiug the best distributing point in this entire eoiintry is unquestionably assured, hence he will advise his company to lo cate their branch manufactory here. Murphy Bulletin, ItEV. THOMAS Dlt), JR., Addresses the Neeting ot Loyal W tnen ol American l.ihrrty. New York Times Mrs. Shepherd introduced the Rev. Thomas Dixon, Jr., the orator of the even ing, whose speeches in Bos! on in the mu nicipal campaign on the public school question gained him a great reputation. Air. Dixon is tall and dark. He has an exceedingly thin aud straight figure, with strongly marked features" and piercing black eyes. He is tin new pastor of the Twenty-third Street Baptist Church. He said he wanted it distinctly under stood that his breast held uo hard feeliugs against the Roman Catholic people or priesthood. He had the kindliest feeling for them and in what he should sa of Romanism he wanted to bj understood as referring to the Roman hierarchy, the ec clesiastical machine. That Church had mistaken the genius of American institu tions. He conceded to every Romanist the right and privihgo of worsh p, and how aud when and where he pleased; and what he conceded to him he demauded for himself but this the Roman church was not willing to cancede. Nie had ta ken a position upon the the question of religious liberty that meant war to the death, on free institutions. Between them and the Roman Church was an open grave and one or the other would have to lie in it. The question of the exclusion of the King James version of the Bible fnun the public schools was one of comparative un importance. The schools were not god less because the Bible was not read in them. Iu the Boston election, the orator said, thousands of Catholics voted with the majority for tho maintenance of the free schools, as would also be the case when the struggle came iu New York. The chief and most malignant purpose of the Roman heirarchy was to umb'nn'no the public school system and build up a parochial school system- a sectar.an edu cational system, upon which it will de mand the division , f the school funds and the geverntneiital support of tie- s ciati.iu schools.

J. II. Mills. Far back amid the mountains of Nt-rfii Carolina where no locrtno ive ha- e.-r been heard is indeed a healing spring of water gushing forth from the side of i.: mountain. It is Thompson's fatuous Bro mine and Arsenic Springs in Ashe e ami y beyond the Blue Ridge and -u the pictur esque New River. It was discovered by a little boy playing in the mountain stream let and lingering by a rocky cliff where he found cool, clear water bubling forth. He played so long in the unknown healing water with a very sore arm tha; next morning when he got up he found his arm almost healed. So, for years afterwards many went there to wash and heal their sores. It has been purchased by a com pany who ship tho water to various pans of the country and many testify m its healing merits. The Ashe and Alleghany Association convened near this spring and we spent, two nights at tho hotel there. The water is cool and tasteless and conies 'rut of, the rocky cliff. It was forty miles from any railroad station arid ou a mountainous re gion which renders it difhcult to reach, but we found people there from Texas. The water is undoubtedly beneficial in a large number of diseases. The hole 1 h,-.-i-is well furnished and makes it a d.-ligio-ful place for the invalid to resort . large number of cottages have been b.nlt out of tho plank alone which enca.-ed the bottles shipped to the springs to be filled with water. - Ilig Mutch ol N.
