Tue railroad property iu Alabama has increased in value from 8, 000, 000 to $16,000,000 in the past fourteen years, and according to the Montgomery Ad vertist-r saves the people of the State $200,000 a year iu taxes which they otherwise would have to pay It seems to ba decided that there will be uo formal opposition to tha ordina tion of Rev. Phillips Brooks, D. D , as Bishop of the Diocese of Massachusetts. The argument against his election was mainly that iu a public address he had stigmatized the invitation to all churches to form an organic union and come in "on the basis of the historic episcopate" as "impudent impotence and impotent impudence." The Johnson City (Tenn ) Comet con tains the gratifying information that the bondholders of the 3 C's Railroad have agreed upon a plan of reorganization by which all the debt will be paid and the work of construction resumed. Already $7,000,000 have been expended on this road which is second in importance to none in that it will develop one of the richest sections of North Carolina. The Chronicle rejoices to record this piece of good news, and trusts that the work will be pushed rapidly upon the con struction. NO THIRD PARTY IN OURS. In the Convention held at Cin cinnati there is no representative from North Carolina. The members of the Alliance iu North Caroliuaknow full well that the place to secure the needed re forms is in the Democratic party. They will stay in the Democratic party and under the banner of Democracy win the battle against plutccrasy and trusts. NEGRO POSTMASTERS. From the New Orleans Times-Democrat, There is a v?cancy in President II ir rison's home postoffice, Indianapolis, and the bentinel of that city suggests that he fid the vacancy by appointing a negro to that office. He chose ce gro postmasters in Vicksburg, Opelousas and other Southern cities lately against the protests of the paople, and there is no reason why Indianapolis should not have a similar dose of darkey. The Sen tinel calls attention to the fact that while there are hundreds of negroes lit for posttffices in Indiana, there is not a col ored postmaster in that entire State There is, therefore, all the more reason why Harrison should recognize the race. It also notes the fact that the presi dent's own organ, The Journal, warmly indorsed his appointment of the negro llill as postmaster at Vicktburg, and ex pressed the opinion that he was doing a wise act in selecting him for that place. If wise for Vicksburg it is equally wise in Indianapol.s, for what is sauce for the Mississippi goose ought to be sauce for the Indiana gander. The Journal should be i (pally ready to commend a similar colored postmas ter in the Indiana city. We fear, how ever, that the color line will be drawn in this case, as it always is in the north, when there is an office to fill, and that the darkies of the president's city will be shut out of the posttffiee. A COKRECTlfiN. Special Cor. to State Chronicle 1 Louisbcrg, N. C, May 18 In the report of the proceedings of the Episco pal Convention, contained in Saturday' issue of the Chronicle, and claimed by you to bo digested from the "Asheviile Citizen"' there occurs a mistake that should be corrected. I a your report you used this language: "Judge Philips, of Tarboro, introduced a resolution r quiring that $500, be ap propnated from the general missionary fund, for the maintenance of a rector at the North Carolina University at Chapel Hill. There was no such resolution intro duced Judge Pnilips did effer a resolu tion to appropriate f 500 for the main tenance of a rector at the Chapel of the Cross at Chapel Hill.

MIMCU 1 LI UUALTI M. Lllll I.I I get the best in the State preachers gumpsa of x to TIIE OVERSHADOWING ISSUE. In accepting the handsome silver ser vice presented to him by the Democrats of Maryland in recognition of his valued service in defeating the Force bill (he was the Democratic leader upon that measure) Senator Gorman gave expres sion to a sentiment which will find a hearty response in the hearts of all pa triotic citizjns. Referring to the defeat of the Force bill in the Senate, he said: "I warn you, that the issue made by the Force bill has not ceased to exist. The President and the greater majority of Republican Senators and Representa tives urged its adoption and still approve its principles. The judgment of the country upon the issue thus made will be again appealed to. But as the people of the several States are still free to se lect their own representatives, I have no doubt of the triumph of the principles of the Democratic party. "fhe success of the Democratic party will mike sectional contests hereafter impossible; a result overshadowing in importance all other political considera tions, and without which it is idle to talk of the future prosperity and great ness of our common country. There is undoubted wisdom iu Mr. Gorman's remarks. The issues that will confront us in 1S92 will be founded up on the same notion of controlling and humiliating the South and of giviog special privilege to the "patrons" of the Republican party. The dethronement of sectionalism can only be brought about through the success of the Demo cratic party, and to its full and complete control of government every effort ought to be directed. There is no hope, for a reform in our financial policy or a redaction of the tariff, which is a great part of the naancial policy of the country, except in the complete de feat of the Republican party. Its over throw is essential to any reform worthy of the name. Those who oppose its favoritism and c'as3 legislation cinaot afford to divide as to measures until their common enemy is vanquished. DYNAMITE EXPLOSION. 'Ihirty men Supposed to be Killed--A Train of Cars Annihilated Fearful Havoc on the Hudson River Rail road. Tarrytovvn, N. Y , May 20. A car laden with dynamite to be used in blast ing along the fludson river railroad sud denly exploded a few miles below here this morning wrecking everything in the vicinity, tearing up all the tracks of the road and blowiug to atoms perhaps thir ty men. Some were hurled dead to a great distance into the river. The firer man of the locomot ve of the train was blown, with the tender of the locomotive into the river. All traffic on the Hudson River rail road waj stopped. The shock of the ex plosion was felt for miles in all direc tions aid it is impossible to indicate the extent of the damage. The load of dy namite was on a flitcarjon aconstruetion train' and was to be used in building the third track. Thus far fifteen bodies have been recovered. At 2 o'clock the remains of nine Ital ians and three Americans, who were killed outright, were lying at the station, where they had been carried by the crowd engaged in moving the wounded aud dead. Four other Italians died after being taken to the station and twenty four badly irjured workmen were also removed to the station. More than twenty are still missing. Those killed outright were literary blown to pieces aud were horribly mutilated. Some of the wounded men had their arms blown away; others are minus their legs, while others were dismem bered in an equally horrible manner. THE RUSSIAN JEWS. (Greensboro Record.) The meeting in the rooms of the Cham ber of Commerce at 6 unlock last even ing to hear Dr. Wessler, who represents the persecuted Jews of Odessa, Russia, who propose to form a colony in this vi cinity, was well attended, especially when the character of the gentlemen pres ent is considered. Mr. J A. Odell was called to the chair and Messrs Albright and Michaux were asked to act as Sec retaries. The lesmed Rabbi spoke at some length, but in temperate lan enaae. of the strained relations of the Jews with the government. of Russia, ami without pronouncing any harsh judgment, stated that there was no al ternative left the persecuted Israelites of that country but to emigrate, and that if aftt-r holding a conference it was decided that America effered the best openirg, Btron Hirsch, of Paris, sub scribed 73,000,000 to the emigration fund, and the sura had at once reached 8120,000,000. Theso Jews, he said, were no paupers, but would be able, eacu one to pay tor nis home forty acres each-and have a surplus left. Three colonies had already been estab lished, one ueir Santa Barbara, Cal., one in Manitoba, and one near Vineland, New Jersey. Some lands had been off ered near Littleton, N. C, and somin Caldwell county. Tnere were several responses to Dr. Wessler'a sensible talk, from Dr. Ben bow and Messrs Kase, Caldwell, J. A. Porter, Col. Douglas, Judge Dillard, Mr. H R King A motion wus passed unsnimously that the views expressed are heartily en dorsed; and on motion a committee of fiye was appointed to further the inter ests cf the matter in hand, composed of Messrs D W.

The wedding was private, the only ones present besides the im mediate family were: Messrs. Kirkman and Connelly, of Durham, and Mrs. A P. Mitchell and Mr. J. R. Brown, of Raleigh. The happy couple left on their wed ding tour to be gone three weeks, visit ing Baltimore, Philadelphia and the North. AT THE UNIVERSITY. A DAY ON TIIE FAMOUS HEAL'. TIFUL CAM PI'S. Indications Point to Election of Prof. the Unanimous Winston to the Presidency. (Editorial Correspondence.) Chapel Hill, N. C, May 20. It is an inspiration to any man to stand upon the campu3 of this noble old University and recall its great achievements. For an hundred years these lofty tree3 have given shade and beauty to these grounds and proven a source of pleasure to man generations. They never looked more stately than now, and never afforded more refreshing shade. And never, perhaps, did more worthy sons of the State enjoy the beauty of their stateliness than those who are now receiving their education within the clas sic halls of this institution. I was im pressed with the industry and good be havior of the students on Monday night. I drove into the village through the campus and by each of the buildings in which the students room. Every light was burning brightly and every student was pouring over his book3. Wonderful to state, I did not see a boy on the cam pus nor on the streets of the village. It was an occurrence so unusual, in any village where boys are instructed, that I remarked upon it and wa3 told that the boys this year were exceptionally stu dious and quiet and particularly so jast before an examination. The ex aminations begin to day, and it is the tug of war. When they are safely over, the diligence and quiet of the students will be put aside for the session, and all will euter into the j oys of commencement with zest and pleasure. And they will deserve a season of recreation and free dom from books and discipline. Everybody is busy getting ready for commencement. Already many have en gaged accommodations for the week and it is expected that a large crowd will be here. The fact that a new Pre sident is to be elected will insure a full attendance of tho Board of Trustees, whose presence ought to, and will, inspire fresh zsal on the part of the Alumni and friends of the University. Da Battle is busy getting his plans in readiness for a thorough and inter esting course in history, which chair he is to fill. His friends say that he is so absorbed in thi3 pleasant task that it will be grateful to him to be relieved of the cares which attach to the presidency and which have weighed so heavily upon him and no sorely taxed his strength. The study of history is second in im portance to no other study, and with his web-stored mind and love of history, I look to see Dr. Battle make his chair not only of value to the students, but to the entire State a well. There seems to bo a general feeling here,as everywhere eUe iu the State, that Prof. Geo T. Winstos, LL D , Pro fessor of Latin, wili ba elected President. So ably is he equipped for the work that he will probib'y bd elected by acclama tion. If so the people of the State will applaud the action of the Trustees, and rally with fresh vigor ,o the support of the University. It will be gratifying to the friends of Pkof. Winston to know that he is quite as popular among the studenta as with the older alumni of the University. A few days ago two of the Scphomore3 took a vote of the student body as to their preferences for Presi dent, and nearly all the boys voted for Prof. Winston who ought now to be called Dr. Winston. This is a more important matter than ono would suppose upon first blush. I'd rather have the opinion of a number of students in any institu tion as to the capacity and acquire ments (so fisr as success is con cernedi of a professor than the estimate of the most profound scholar and the mist successful business meu. They come nearer to a teacher and have a better opportunity of taking his measure accurately than any other parties. A pro'essor necessarily impasses himself upon his c-asset, and a aria', tt-acner m kos an irnortssio-j wnien a lanai's ih to Lira with ! hooks of steel. IiisasM'e luie to say that if the boys iu a school or universi ty elo not like or hav 5 confi Jetica in the head of the sohovl that there is some thing lacking in him. Boys h ive keen perception and they are honest in their estimates more so th:n men. No considerations cf poli cy or business irllaences theoa in forming their opinions, and if not al ways wiser, they are nsua'dy more honest. The truth of it is that the average boy comes out of college with more lefty as pirations, unselfish patriotism and noble endeavor than you often find in a mm after he is thirty years old. It is a glo nous thing to f ;el strong anel brave and honest, and to at is what a college boy does. The danger is that the love of mocey and the insincerity that greet him often in the business world will chill hia unselfish patriotism and make him sordid. The philosophy of the world is to mike money, and the love of it is fast sapping the best that i in mafllhood. Lucky is that young man who, while appreciating the true value of the dollar, preserves his integrity and refases to bow down and worship at t! e Fhrioe of a dollar. Thrice fortunate is he who, while attentive to business, does not stick his head in the sand bnt lets bis imagination have some play.and dream nobl" dreams. The man who doesn't dream of beirg useful in his day and generation; aDd the man who doesn't dream of the comiDgof better and hap pier days and help to bring them about by his own faith in himself and Lis fellow man deserves to Jie and to receive a de cent burial. A feeling of gloom and depression pervaded the village this morning when it became known that Mrs. Mary Weeks, wife of Stephen B. Weeks, Ph. D , had died on Tuesday night. She was a true and earnest Christian and a devoted daghter, wife and mother. She is a daughter of Rev. J. B. Martin, who is greatly bereaved. Sad as the death of one so young and popular must be under any circumstances, the death of Mas. Weeks is peculiarly sad. She had been quite sick, and two weeks ago her husband, who is at Johns Hopkins' Uni versity, was telegraphed for to come to her dying bedside. She thought she was dying and gave her last words to her husband and family. But, con trary to all expectations, she rallied and seemed to be on the read to perfect health. Her husband returned to his duties with the ent faith that she had passed the critical point in her dis ease .nd would rapidly regain strength. Yesterday she was thought to be improv ing, and it was not uutil after twilight that she began to fail. The suddenness adds to the deep sorrow of her family, and the young husband has the addi tional pang of being far away from her bedside. She leaves a bright and sunny boy, aged three years. THE LAIIIES AT THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION. Special Cor. State Chronicle. Birmingham, Ala., May 13. The meeting of the Woman's Missionary Un ion was called to order promptly at 10 o'clock by the President, Miss Mcintosh, but several minutes was consumed in re questing gentlemen to retire, who seem ed to fail to understand that this was al together a ladies meeting, and no gen tlemen allowed. It would be impossi le to give any thing like a detailed account of the meet ings, so much business being transacted and so many subjects touched upon, we only mention a few of tho more striking reports or addresses. Mrs. T. E. Eiger's paper on "Mis sionary Literature" was the ablest ex position of the subject that we havt ever heard, and might well bo taken as a guide in the formation of a missionary library. She began with the great tomes on the science, foundation and growth of missions and built up around them, as the solid foundation stones, missionary biography, travels, adventures and labors, and did not for get to add the missionary leaflet. These last she though had a very large field, that no other form of missionary litera ture could fill. They were to this branch of literature what small arms were to the army. One big book or cannon would be used to several thousand leaflets. She urged the more extended use of them. Dr. J. M. Frost addressed the meet ing on Oar Religious Duty to the Colored People, lie wished to bring this home to the homes and hearts of the Southern people, and he thought he could do this best if he could reach the ladies. He doubted if we were thrown daily in con tact with the Chinese if there would be any moie romance in work for them, personal and individual work, than now in trying to train our servants to higher religious living. We owed them efforts for their uplifting for causes political philanthropic but above all religious. Education, much as it was doing for them, would not accomplish the work, but sought to impress. Religious training and that alone would accomplish it. Recommendations for work next year were read from the Foreign and State Board of the Convention. They were in the main only enlargement of the plans of last year. The great work the Union endeavors to do in Foreign fields is to support all the women missionaries of the Foreign Board of the Convention, la the Uame Fields their most import ants undertaking is the maintainance of a school for the higher education of young women in Cuoa and to this was added a request for chapel building in distitute frontier field?. The afternoon session was given al most entirely to reports of from States Missouri, Maryland, Kentnckey, Louis ana, Virginia, Georgia, all reported gra tifyicg increase iu work and contribu tions. Papers were presented by Mrs. M. C. Cole, of Lonisaoa. On Band Work, by Mrs. Li Waken, of Georgia, on Japan, by Mrs. W. E. Hatcher, of Virginia, on Mexico and Italy, Rev. G. B.

Ilearins which bctzAn on ' co - fuesday were con i titled on Wednesday The Passenger ftittcs. The general trend of the arguments made by the representatives of the rail roads is that the reduction of rates made by the Commitsiou would bring a loss to them. Tney a.ked for relief from specific rates established by the Com mission. The representatives of the tiichmond & Daaviiie aad tho Wilming ton & Wfcldon railroads stated that their roads were willing to a reduction iu the paiseugev rate to the 3 14 for first class and 2 3 4 for second-class fare on their mainlines, but that they were unwilling to make a reduction upon their branch les, and asked the Commissioners to change their rule in regard to passenger rates ou branch roads.

There were long discussions before the Commission upon the freight rates pre scribed. It was stated by one cf the roilroad cflisers that the rates pre- ciibed would mean a reduction of 40 per cent, upon some or tne classinca- tions, and too much reduction upon others Some of the roads asked to ba allowed to retain their pre.--eut tariff Others asked a percentage of increase of from ten to twentv Dor cent, over the tariff prescribed by the Railroad CocutDissiou. These requests were tn-iiuly ou the letter cla-sjs Which in elude chitlly grain, corn meal, and other articles of prime necesri'y which the Railroad Commission had so classified as to givo a low tariff rate. The Com missiou, iu their classitica'ion, sought to make their reductions npon tuch ar ticles as corn, salt, &c , which even the poorest people are compelled to have.
