Newbern, N. C, June 10, '91. Henry Gannett, Esq., Chairman Ex. Committee, etc: Dear Sir: Yours to our City Clerk has been handed to me with request that I would reply to it. From the earliest information that I can obtain up to the year 1862 the name of the town was jpelled Newbern. The name under which it was chartered was New bern. I send you a bound copy of the Acts of the General Assembly published in'1793. By reference to it you will see the laws passed by the General Assembly which was then held at Newbern, N. C, while under King George the II and King George III. In numerous places, in fact all over the book, reference is made to the town of Newbern, N. C. One among the very first acts is in regard to Newbern, N. C, dating back to 1715. I send you a copy of the charter of the town of Newbern, chartered by act of General Assembly in 1723. A number of amendment shave been made but no change has legally been made in spelling Newbern. New bern was settledjand named in 1710. Incorporated 1723. I send you a copy of the Acts of the GenerallAssembly held at Eden ton, N. C, George I, the 23d day of November, 1723: Whereas, A certain plot of ground was formerly laid out into a township by the name of Newbern, same is declared, con firmed, and incorporated into a township by the name of Newbern.'

In 1862 Newbern was captured by the forces under General Burn side. At the capture nearly all the being t-1 The Electric Railway. Vigorous work is now pushed in regard to our street cars. Mr. J. C.
