May uard. Both gentlemen live at Mortis-ville. Every Week Shows How Sadly Ral cigh Needs a Large Auditorium. It has been remarked once or twice perhaps one or two hundred times that thete is need of a large assembly hall or auditorium in Raleicrh. There are few weeks in which something does not oc cur which forcibly emphasises this state ment. Last niffht and nteht before, for in stance, there was an entertainment giv en in the city which everybody wanted to see aud enjoy, lhere was not a nai in town to hold half the crowd that wanted to go, and the entertainment had to be repeated. A little later on tfcere win oe various meetings and conventlous in this oity Such meetings are always being held here, and those same meetings are jammed up and crowded into serial dis New York, May 21. Messrs. Hub bard, Price At Co. m their cotton cir cular to-night say : The Liverpool inar ket opened this morning at an advance of from 2 to-3 points, the prices touched being the highest made for the season thus far. The spot demand is reported pood and some surprise is expressed that the tenders, wnicu were oniy i,uwv haioa tn-riav. have not, been larger.

Anderson comes as a personal bereavement to almost every body in tne city. or many years past he has been every body s irieud, t very - body's counsellor and everybody's advisor. Col. Anderson has been in declining health for about two years. His friends saw with keen sorrow his robust person wasting away under the ravages of di3- ease, lnev svtnoatnized witn mm in his suffering but thev held on to a hone in futures 115,000 bales " . .? - -r- - , i l r that he would yet live many years; for Futures closed l too points mguer ioi they knew that their loss, when called on some months,as follows to sustain it, would be sad and well nigh advance ot some 0 points on JUiy, points on August and 3 to 4 points on the new crop, and has been nervous the entire day, closing some 3 to 4 points below the opening prices and at a de cline of 7 points from the highest figures touched for August.

Transactions A new, large and beautiful locomotive, No. 230, was received at the Raleigh & Gaston Railroad shops this morning for the use of that road. Another big loco motive is expected to arrive to morrow, The R & G. is doing a good business and is getting ready to do still more. Round trip tickets will be issued on the 26th, 27th and 28th of May, by the Richmond & Danville and the Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley Railroads, to partios attending the commeucement at Greensboro Female College, on the U7th, 28th and 29th, good returning until and including June 2d. Very large convention: and meetings cannot come here, for want of a good place to myet. Of course they come now and then, and Raleigh manages in some way to take care of them; but there is always extra work to do and then to undo, This is not a proper fix for the capitol city of the State to be caught in. An auditorium to accommodate from three to five thousand people is needed. One could be erected to meet all con vention and big meeting demands at a smaircost. Such an auditorium need not be a gorgeous, costly affair. The main thing wanted is seating capacity and protection from the sun and rain. When these conventions assemble they want a good roomy place in which to meet. They are willing to pay for such Dont fcrget the "Rose Queen Recep- Uplace-in tact they now pay for places tion and Festival" civen by the Bright Jewels at Edcnton Street Sunday school room this evening. An enjoyable time is promised. Ice cream, cake &c will be wtvH at the usual priee. Admis sion 10 cents.

In the afternoon lhere will bo spt cial exercises by the members of the infant class. The pub lic will ba welcomed to all the services. Seat free and ushers present. Preparations have been commenced for giving a grand exhibit of all the fancy dances here at an early day for the be no tit of St. John's Hospital. The as sistance of quite a number of young la dies and gentlemen has been enlisted. The entertainment will include presen tations of the Highland Fling, minuet, And other beautiful figures of the dance. The first rehearsal will be held at Henry hill to-night under the superintendence of Prof. Bellezza. which are not at all suited or adequate to the necessities of sucii meetings, If some man or some firm would put up an auditorutn a neaf, comfortable substantial stiucture, with movable seats, that man or firm could rent the building for various causes during the year for an amount that would run up a big percentage in the investment. Of course, after the building is up, if some charitable undertaking should apply for it, and the owner should make a charge for rent, he would in all prob i? bility be denounced as stingy, and nar row, and mean, and that sort of thing; but people talk a great deal any how,. and a man would not lose much, if anything, by refusing to "give" his building for such uses. Let the audi torum go up in some way. It is greatly needed, and whoever builds it will have something that will surely yield him a handsome little income. SPECIAL MEETINGS II THE GOSPEL TENT. Has Arrived And will be Put up To-Day. The Gospel tent for the series of meet ings of Rev. F. L. Smith, which have been previously announced, has ar rived, and will be erected to-day on the northwest corner of Hargett and Blount streets, (the old Jenkins corner). The first meeting will be held to-night. Mr. W. C. Stronach has kindly furnished a number of seats sufficient to seat six hundred people. Delightful music may be expected, as much of the best church talent of the city has promised to aid in the work. Services will begin at eight to-night. Cunvaising for a College. Rev. W. T. Herndon, of Thomasville, is here representing Elon College. He is financial agent and has undertaken the task of collecting f 20,000 toward the erection of buildings for the college, which is the educational institution of the Christian denomination in this State. He scoured about $900 in Raleigh yes terday. The college is located at Mill Point, a few miles above Burlington. 0:her oanvassers are out, having under taken to raise certain amounts, but none, perhaps, have undertaken so much as Dr. Herndon.

An derson, treasurer, to attend the services in a body. By order of the president. Daisy Denson, Secretary. irreparable. A few day3 ago he returned from Philadelphia, where he had been by the advice of his local physician, to consult a specialist. There were some evidences of physical improvement, and yesterday morning when he walked up the street his friends greeted him in congratula tory tones. Those who greeted him that morning spoke to him for the last time on earth. About 1 o'clock he was sitting at his desk, in the Citizen's National Bank, hav ing just pome from a conference of one of his church committees, when he turned to Cashier Joseph G. Brown and said: "Joe, my hand feels sorely cramped." Mr. Brown replied to the remark, and then Col. Anderson said : "I feel very dizzy." Mr. Brown sent a porter across the street for restoratives, and when the messenger returned Col. Anderson took the medicine. A mo ment latey ho fU back in his chair in an unconscious state. A sofa was brought in, and physicians summoned at once, and Mrs. Anderson and other members of the family were aUo summoned. The doers of the bank were promptly closed, and everything that human love and kKUl could devise were esei'Cijjed to relieve the Colonel, but to no avail. He never regained consciousness, and at 4:45 o'clock his snirit fled from its earthly home. Many people stood around the bank from the time of the fatal attack till the end, inquiring as to Col. Anderson's condition. 4vices from the physicians plainly signified that there was no hope for recovery, but the people refused to accept those advices and tenaciously clung to the hope that the attack might prove temporary; but all such hoptg were too soon sadly and bitterly crushed Not long after the fatal moment, the bank building was draped in mourning. The city hall bell had already toiled for half an hour, various Orders and or ganizations with which Col. Anderson oad been connected were arranging to hold m etings to-dav in his memory aud honor, and people were standing iu Ualf stuptfidd groups here and then-, still wondering if the loved and respect ed citizen were really dead. The fact was too much opposed to their wishes to permit its easy acceptance. Col. Wm. E. Anderson was born in Hillsboro, November 9th. 1835. His childhood was spent in Wilmington. At the age of seventeen he came to Iialeigh and became connected with the old State Bmk, afterwards the Bank of North Carolina, .air. Geo. W. Mordecai was president of the bank, and it was located in the building now occupied as th3 rectory of Christ church. Col. Anderson's connection with that bank lasted till it went into bankruptcy. During the wer he was deputized to take charge of the valuables and secure them from from the ravages of invaders. He executed this commission faithfully and success fully. He was afterwards connected with the Jno. G. Williams bank, aud when the Citizens' bank was organized in 1870, he was elected its president and has held that position ever since. Col. Anderson hna held almost innu merable positions of trust and confi dence. For some years past he has been Grand Treasurer of the Grand Lodge of Masons in this State. For years past he has been the commissioner of the sink ing fund of Raleigh. He was treasurer and trustee of St. Augustine Normal school in this city; was identified with various charities; was a vestryman of Christ church and one of its most val ued and active members, and was member of the standing committee of the Diocese. He had a prominent con nection with various other organizations whose purposes are to effect good and beneficent work. His life has been a noble one; unpre tending, unselfish and quiet, but its every stage is marked by some good deed, and his course is one most worthy ot emulation and nonor. His fellow citizens will express their deep regret at his death, and their great appreciation of his life and work in va rious meetings to-day. The funeral services will be held from Christ church at five o'clock this after noon, and will be conducted with Ma sonic honors. lTav 1 oiov June 12 39-40 VI ii ii Auciiat 12 3031 September H 4344 October w 00 November IU vu 71 December 10 G9 70 January 1 io 74 Februarv 10 77 H a Liverpool spot cotton closed steady; middlings 6 9-10; sales 15,000 bales.

Oxford, North Carolina, is the most eastern of the Piedmont towns. It has the elements of growth in the raw ma terial of the surrounding country, its ac cess by railway to all markets, the in dustry of its people, its unsurpassed healtbfulneas.

It has already three plug tobacco factories and three smoking to bacco factories and as many more or ganizing. It has the largest establish ment in the world for stemming tobacco for foreign shipment; a large cotton factory is contracted for, to work up the cotton that grows at its doors; and twenty-other smaller manufactories.
