His people had cen sured him for so doing, and had sei; him back, but he was here to-day. He s;dd he was the only man in Eastern North Carolina who had spoken against Fred. Douglas' marriage to a white woman. He took pride in voting for this mil and would gladly vote for one giving twice as large a sum. He would vote for the bill if it was the last act of his political life. He was applauded for his remarks. Mr. Skinner said he accounted it a peculiar privilege to be allowed to speak and vote in favor of this bill. lie was glad to be able to crystaPza ihera the feelings of love for the Confederate soldier, in legislative action. He paid a high tribute to Jefferson Davis and to Lee and Jackson. To him the blind and maimed Confederate soldier is the sub limest.and yet tne most pitiful character, in history. His virtues, like his gallantry, are monumental. It is not treason to provide for the poor and the maimed. Mr. Gilmer declared that the eloquence of the speakers on this measure had moved him. He alluded to the present prosperity of the State and contrasted it with the trying war aays, ana tne aays The Old Union Warrior Not Expected to Live Tslany Hours.

Ws:hn(;ton, N C, Feb. 11. I have cm fully rad the communication from Beaufort. N. C, in Sunday's Curt wicle ip-n the oyster question, s:gned Ex- rie ce." Iu it the writer attempted to answer a former communication in ihe Cjiuonicle from Washington, N. C. I shall cot attempt to answer in detail the various points advauced in his letter because I cannot see that it adds any thing new to the question before the Leg islature. It was written from the stand point of a citizen of Carteret county whose waters are all shallow, and where tonging is the only method by which oysters are caught, and where under no circumstances could dredging be done. It should be remembered in the consid eration of this question that a large sec tion of Eastern North Carolina is inter ested in oyster catching, and that it is not alone conhned to Carteret conntv There are two methods of catching oysters, which are naturally distinct and it may be stated that where tonging is done that dredging should not bo done, and vice versa. It mav be stated as an unequivocal proposition, which is not denied by your correspondent, that oysters cannot be caught with tongs in the open and deep waters of Pamlico Sound. It is also equally true that dredging under proper restrictions does not damage the natural oyster beds any more than tonging, and Lt. Winslow and other experts state positively that this method is not so injurious. It then follows inevitably that ii you confine the catching of oysters to tonging that those sections contiguous to the shallow water only can catch oysters, and that none will l3 caught out of the deep waters of Pamlico Sound. Such a law would be c!as3-lcgislatiou, and would be a positive discrimination in favor of one section against another. The people ot uarteret county, it is admitted, catch oysters with tongs out of the shallow waters of Core Sound; and, of course. one would naturally expect those people slad, sir. that fh L'aruiiur- ins at ht waki d :p to ' T ml that the touching appeal T ? ne; t e nil" from th pen or nrr mos. e.s imab.e daughters. md -approved and -endorsed by the kind, d?!- rl md liot.h-h'.arttd ladies all over ur (and, has reached the eyes, ears and aearis of that grand body "of wise and patriotic Senators, who have, with thut magnanimous spirit which dwells within he oreast ot every true patriot, responded as cniy wise, ja-,t and reasonablej men ouid do, and made bv a unanimous vote the appropriation asked.

Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen, I well remember when North Carolina sounded the alarm of danger that so rapidly bid ner patriotic sons come forward to offer their services, ten regiments of volun teers were formed before she could for mally call for State troops. And when the rormal call was made her sons, true to the characteristics of their ancestors, rose up almost as one man and said to her : "Mother we are here at thy bidding and we intend to defend thee, to battle for the right to fight under thy banner and to under go the suffering and perils of a soldiers life, and if need be our lifes blood shall flow and our lives be given for thy def ence. Mother we dare to do this for thee and we ask the promise of thy assur ance Irom thee, tnat our wives and little ones whom we now leave on thy bosom and m thy care that thou will take them in charge, keep them under the shadow of thy wings, and if we should fall and our bones lie bleach rug in a distant land, that you will provide for their necesities and enable the mothers to bring np the children in the nurture and admonition Ul luu 1J,J1U' "uu suuum.uu iju Will tV1Q tK- T unfortunate as to lose our eyes,arms and a J L n ti 7 . -J ' . . , consider tois seriously : If thev do.

As a clinching argument, we are permitted to print the following letter from Senator Vance to Representative Holman: Washington, D.C. Feb. 3. 1891. Ho; J. B. HolmaN, House of Repre sentatives Puleigh, N. C. My Dear Sir. Let me beg you to consider the propriety of restoring the Geological Survey and making an ap propriation for its support. It was sus pender: at a moment when it was most needed by the mineral interests of the State. I feel the want of it here every time a proposed investor talks to me about North Carolina lands and miner als, which is very often. Ihe United State Survey proposes to do a certain work in our State but there is a certain other work which it is not allowed to do. The two surveys should co oper tte, and whilst the United States Survey would give us the general outline the State Survey could give us the location, quality, quantity etc, of each particular mineral deposit, in tnis way c-y a smaii appropriation say $10,000 per annum, hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of dollars could be secured.as investments in our mineral lands. I do assure you that this is a matter of very great importance to our people and the prosperity of our State. As our Farmer's Legislature shows so much lib erality on the subject of education I do hope they will show the same enngnieu ed spirit ia relation to the development of our mineral wealth. Very truly Yours, Z. B. Vance. gallant sons, through those who were then in authority, her agents, sons of Carolina: "The great State of North Carolina desires to thank you for your prompt ness in flying to her rescue. JShe further desires to say that she has heard your reasonable and just request to take care ;f aud provid for you aid your f.-tmi-'iosin t-ho ewnt misfortunes should be ll yon so that, you cannot do to. lies' inured i-h ... w ill co her full duty and not ane of the '.l suffer." Now, Mr. S, ;kc:, as to how well, t iveiy and neb y the so oiers performed Vieirduty, let s istorv and their surviv iug eomrad s tell, and if that is not suffi eieat I ask you to visit the graveyards of Virginia and Maryland and at Gettys burg, and see how many of her sous sleep beneath the sod, and to the official reports of the killed and wounded in every battle from Bethel to Appomattox. And theu, sir, I ask what has North Carolina as a State done for the soldiers, with the exception of a small pension to certain classes for a few years? Noth ing has been done, and now I grieve to say it, sir, many of these poor old men, helpless and dependent on tho charities of the world, have been forced by their poverty to ask us to pay a debt we owe them and take them out of the public poor houses and relieve them from un told suffering. It is, sir, a duty and a debt of grati tude which North Carolina cannot lon ger neglect. To do so would be simply throwing water on and quenching the flame of patriotism that should burn in the breast of every one who calls him self a man. Mr. Speaker, to sing the praises of any of the gallant men of North Carolina who fought in defence of their native state, I had the honor to be ington, and many of the most conserva tive people in Hyde ;;nd Pamlico coun ties, are not opposed to dredging pro vided tho privilege i3 confined to resi dents of the State. Everyone is a unit in favor of confining the privilege to citizens of North Carolina; and while they ask the privilege to dredge oysters ia tho ih'ep waters of Pamlico Sound, which would not otherwise be caught, they do not ask it unqualifiedly. They believe that, although the privilege is confined to our people still, it should be surrounded by all necessary and proper restrictions; in fact, they are willing to any reasonable restric tion upon the privilege to dredge. All that they ask is that they shall not be absolutely prohibited from dredging the oysters, which would not otherwise b3 caught, and thereby obstruct the devel opment of their great resource. We do not demand any restraint against the people of Carteret county who catch their oysters with tongs. We only ask that we shall bo permitted to catch the oysters which are tributary to our sec tion. Your correspondent asks : "Could any fair-minded citizen of Washington or any other town ask the State to givo to non-residents hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of oysters for the pur pose of employing from six to seven hundred women and children in shuck ing at one cent per pound without any benefit to the State or to her people?" Certainly our people do not ask any such privilege of the State. Wo not only suggest, but insist that the privilege shall be confined to citizens of our State and that their privilege be sur rounded by rigid restrictions. If our people do not engage in dredging, then no oysters will be dredged, and the ar- iuu iiumu fcLaic, x uu iubuuuui iu uc dent . h q corresoondent will be or tnat gallant nana ana wun naraiy a rpali,pf1 Yn ir pftprn iiTin q DTnonfmn fi-rvm tho hnmh oif virl- I 1 vate to the highest officer from our state , i 1.: r u v, v,i : r,'-v.- of General Jcthro Sumner to uersonv me, iu -.iw rp 6,000 comes from the general runu ana Stuii :1 Battle Ground. the president and sec retary . signuturts whi(jh jg Q0W used for tbe coauty Mr. U,as did not know how about to deeds are sufll; institutes goes to the school.
