The Bishop then read out the appoint ments prefacing them with an earnest and heart-moving talk. We make a few extracts: I never lo3e the impression of true sublimity of such an occasion as this; it grows upon me continually and I am more persuaded now than I was twenty, thirty, fifty years ago, when I used to take an appointment myself, that the providence of God is in these appoint ments. You hear a great many foolish men say it is the Presiding Elder, or some one else of influence; oh, no, let thorn exert all the influence they please, you are in the hands of God. He has prepared the field for you; He has antici pated your going and he wants exactly such a man as you are, and if you do your duty you can do more than anybody else could, no matter how capable he may be according to the estimate of the world. As you get older you will find that you have wasted a great deal of time to side issues; brethren, get wise; waste no time in side issues; preach Christ and righteousness, so the Holy Spirit can use the text and the sermon; do not preach on nothing and everything and some thing; try to preach upon Christ; life is what we want, and power, and this is what Methodism holds forth to the world, a system of life and religion. Re ligion is simply existence; it i3 only knowing Jesus. Now preach that. Oh, what a luxury it ie i-o hear a good sermon from a man wno nas put nis whole soul into it, who has worked had over it and then gone into the closet with it, and shows as much of the closet as it does of the lamp. That is the sort of preaching that will take the world, and why should we not take it ? I invoke the blessing of God upon you, my dear brethren, especially the out pouring of the Holy Ghost. May you be blest; may your families be blest; may you have great comfort at home, and great and continual trust in God. The Lord will take care of you and feed you; you will not starve; your children will be educated, and when you are gone they will do about as well as other people's children. THE APPOINTMENTS.

The Wilmington Star says: Lockey is the pre seeuiing witness; so the indict ment is based on ex parte Republican testimony, and amounts to nothing. Of course, the grand jury was not ac curately advised as to all the facts, or a true bill would not have been found. And in this connection it may be sug gested that it would be eminently proper for some grand jury to take cognizance of the acts of the Radical negro who withheld the books from the legally ap pointed Register of Cape Fear township, and thus by force and, as is currently re parted, under the advice of white Re publicans, prevented a legal election. This whole proceeding is a pieca of Ralical devilty set on foot for the solo purpose of harrassing and intimidating the Democratic canvassers who had the nerve and honesty to reject the returns of a township in which a most out rageous violation of the election law the salient feature. But the efforts of the Tom-Reed law- 1 At A 1 yere, whether adipose or attenuated, will utterly fail of their purpose, in both the State and Federal courts, in the present case. According to the telegram to the btar, Messrs. George H. Jackson, J. H. Home and James Cowan, all members of the canvassing board, are not included in the indictment. Weaver, J. S. THE COLUMBIAN FAIB. THE GRANDEST STATE IV TIIE UNION SHOULD HAVE THE GRANDEST EXHIBIT AT CHICAGO. There in Need tot a First-Class Geolog ical Map - ol North Catolina The Opiuiou ot a Great Inventor Quoted. (Special Cor., to State Chronicle.) Salisbury, N. C, Nov. 29. I grasp the hand of Peter M. Wilson and heartily endorse his suggestion that prepara tion for a great exhibit from North Car olina at the World's Fair in Chicago should begin at once. Previous efforts along this line at Boston, New Orleans and Raleigh aston ished not only strangers but ourselves aa well. We have never done our best and never can. Above and beneath the sun-kissed soil of this grand old State there be such vast stores of wealth that any effort to make a collection of speci mens to indicate its real extent can but be futile; but we can easily step to the front of any other State in showing a variety of resouices, and we ought to do it. North Carolina is not re ceiving her just proportion of the money that is steadily flowing into the South, nor are the brainy men of the country paying so much attention to her as to other sections. Why is this ? We don't know why, but we ought to try to learn. Maybe it is because they don't know what we really possess. If that be the difficulty, then let's remove it. Let's organize, and organize earlv. Then let's begin work, and begin early, and let's show the millions of people who will go from every (piarter of the globe to Chicago in '92 that North Carolina is the greatest State in the sisterhood of States that form this, the grandest coun try upon which the stars shine. Should the Legislature take action ? Unquestionably. It should give the matter the most careful consideration, and it should provide unsparingly, if neea De. ior a collection and arrange ment of the most complete exhibit of re sources and the most svstematic and thorough setting forth of advantages that we have ever yet made. Our mountains of marble, of slate and of granite; our mother lodes of manga nese, iron and coal; our rich tissues of sil ver, of gold and of copper stretching along our part of the great Apalachian belt; our broad areas of native wood land, where the poplar, the pine, tho walnut, tho maple and all other woods known in the kingdom of forestry abound inexhaustibly; our broad valleys and fields, on which grow almost spon taneously nearly every stalk and plant known to agriculture. All these things we have and we know it. Let's show tho world that we have them, and invite men and money to come and to keep coming, and aid us in our grand new era of industrial de velopment. Let the Legislature help and let all the people help, and as at Boston our exhibit at Chicago will speak to the industrial world in tones that will be heard and heeded. In this connection there is one other important thing the Legislature ought to do. It ought to inaugurate plans and appropriate sufficient money for making and publishing a correct and complete geological map of North Carolina, to bo made not from what "grandpa told uncle John," but from actual and careful surveys made by the best engineers and geologists that can be secured. One of the most eminent men in America said to me recently: "I am surprised that your State, pos sessing as it does such vast deposits of mineral and metal, should not have a reliable geological map," 'and the money that it will cost to have one made," he continued, "will be the best investment your State has ever made." Let's get ourselves in readiness and then step up where we belong in tho very front.of progressive States. F. B. Arendell. W. II. & R. S. TUCKER, & CO. You Should See Them.

(.Special Cor. State Chronicle.) Henderson, N. C, Dec. 2, 1890. I notice in your paper to-day (December 2d): "It is rumored that, under the advice of the ministers of tho other churches there (the M. P. church ex cepted), the Young Men's Christian As sociation declined to extend an invita tion to him. Uur intormant was not advised of the reasons that actuated the ministers, but learned that Mr. Fife seemed hurt and surprised." Please let me say through your paper that I, for one of the ministers of Henderson, have never advised the Y. M. 0. A. to invite, or not to invite Mr. Fife to this place. If any of the ministers of Hen derson did as your informant says, I know nothing of it. The coming of Mr. Fife to Henderson was talked over in the minister's confer ence. I expressed my purpose to hear him; not to put any hindrance in the way, and give him my support so far as I could, and I was not the only minister that expressed himself in the same way. It is right and just to say this. R. VanDeventeb, Pastor of the Baptist Church. Franklin Distict W. R. Babnett, Presiding Elder. Franklin D. H. Comann; C. D. Smith, Sup. Franklin circuit A, W.

Hav ing in his mind his"Great Cryptogram," he made speeches in favor of the Bacon theorv. The voters thought this meant more smoked meat, and they rushed to Donnelly's support. After holding his last term of court, Judge McCorkle received quite a com pliment from the bar of the 9th. District at Surry court. A meeting was held and resolutions adopted highly commen datory of the Judge, and expressing re gret at his retirement from the position which he has adorned. Websteis Week ly says that too much cannot be said iu praise of Judge McCorkle, and that the memory cf his visit to the 9th. District will forever remain fragrant.
