It was an intellectual treat fbr the students, being comprehensive, in teresting and instructive. Prof Armstrong is a very fine . English scholar, and when talking on that subject he seems to be in his native element. He shows the power of making what . some term a dry subject a most interesting one. We were glad to have him in our class-rooms during rne . day. He made a fine impression upon all. We are always glad to have such men viait us. "w .

Goldsboro, N. C, Oct. 30, '91. Would it not be well, and is it not due to the traveling public, special ly to the large number of persons now visiting Raleigh, for the rail- road authorities to have a bulletin board at the Mayor's office or some I other public place on Fayetteville street, on which shall be posted daily the time of the arrival of de layed trains? For several days this week per sons have been compelled to set in that most dirty and uncomfortable so-called depot waiting, from one to four hours for delayed trains when all this 'might have been avoided if notice had been given up town. The railroad men know just when a train will arrive, but they cannot or will not give this information to the people who are wearily wait ing at the station. One of the Sufferers. Capt. J. M.
