At Chapel Hill, Wednesday, Prof. Wilson, of the biographical department of the University, de livered an address on oyster cul ture. He has just returned from a trip to the North Carolina sounds, made especially to observe the con dition of the oyster beds there. Speaking of oyster culture through out the country, he observed that the demand for oysters had greatly outgrown the supply since the mod ern. ini rovements in the catch, which have tended largely to exter minate the beds The question then is, how shall the total extermina tion of the oyster be prevented and at the same time the demand sup plied ? If dredging were prohibited the oys'ers would increase for a time, but tongiisg would also in crease and soon become as destruc tive to the beds as dredging had UNCLE mti PURSE.

The peculiar process of the birth of the baby oyster was here explained. Another means of cultiva tion in these oyster-farms is to drive down piles, to which the little oys ters fasten themselves. Measures are taken by this State to preserve oys ters. The legislation permits that any citizen may lease ten acres for plant ing oysters or more in deep water. Natural beds must be left to along shoremen as their exclusive fishing grounds. In the State a large number of lots in the sound have already been leased. The along shoremen respect these private grounds, and this State never has experienced any trouble on account of the native oystermeu encroaching on private beds, as Maryland and Virginia have. The alongshoremen of this State are peaceable so long as the native beds are let alone by outside speculators. The oyster and shell fish commission in this State has been created for the purpose of protecting overworked natural beds and keeping the State informed on the ovster business, &c. The last legislature imposed a tax of lc. a bushel on oysters, in hopes of thus getting a good income in the State treasury, but the income has been less than was expected, and the tax has had the effect, by increasing the price of oysters, of shutting clown the oyster-canning factories in the coast cities. tant Secretary Spalding appeared-in place of Secretary Foster, who was ill. The Assistant Secretary submitted a fctatemenv, d giving the receipts for the first half of the fiscal year and also for twenty days in January. The lotal receipts for six months of the current fiscal year were $174,151. 000, against $i 1)2.897,000 the first six months two years ao; first twenty days ot present month $2,0 837,000, against. $21,750,000 two years ago. Total revenue estimated for current fiscal year, $302,000,000 against ?403,()6o,0()0 two years ago, Th se actual receipts of $174,451,000 for the first six months of the current fiscal year were about $7,000,000 more than i the expenditures for the correspond- mg six monuis, me expenditures being $167,074,000. The expendi tures estimated for the current fis cal year wre $33 ,000,000, or about $24,000,000 less than the stiniiited receipts o $362,000,000. He considered available for the ex penses of the government the $100, 000.000 of the gold rest-rve held for the redemption of greenbacks which could be redeemed. In response to Mr. Turner, of Georgia, a member of the commit tee, Mr. Spalding said that if the fractional silver fund and tli3 gold fund were taken out there would be neither a surplus nor a deficit; the receipts and expenditures would just about balance. To the Sunday School Workere of North Carolina. Brethren: The executive com mittee of the Sunday school associa tion of North Carolina, issues this call for its eleventh annual State convention to be held in Newborn on the 29th, COth and 31st days of March next. The convention will be attended by Mr. Wm. Reynolds, of Peoria, 111., late President of the International Sunday School Asso ciation and now superintendent of organization of that association (the most prominen: Sunday school convention worker in the country) and by Prof. H. M. Hamill, super intendent of the normal work of the Illinois Sunday school association. The representation in the con vention will consist of members of the State executive committee, all speakers named in the programme of the convention, and five delegates from each county. Greatly reduced round-trip rates of fare will be obtained from all railroads. If arrangements can be effected, a special train will be run from Salisbury or Greensboro to Newbern. An outline programme and information concerning railroad facilities will be pubiUhed as soon as practicable. All counties which have not herd conventions since last March, arc earnestly requested and urged to takn immediate notion, hold conven tions and ele'-t delegates to the State Convention. A lull representation from every county in the State is greatly desired. We appeal to the ministers, su perintendents and every lover ofihe Sunday School cause throughout the State, to bestir themselves and see that county conventions are held in counties where none have been held during the year. The press of North Carolina, ever willing to do its part in every good work, can be ued, and we ap peal to each worker in the cause to see for himself that a call for a County Convention is issued at once. Let it be no longer delayed. Any Sunday school worker i com missioned to arouse the brethren to the issuance of the call. A profitable and pleasant time may be expected. Let no County fail to be represented. By order of the Executive Com mittee. Geo. W. Watts, Cbm'n. II. N. Snow, Sect'y. Durham, N. C, Jan. 20, '92. The pension board has received from the Auditor information of frauds which has been perpetrated. In a western county a man who had lost a little finger obtained a certis- icate that he had lost a "limb.' The Auditor holds that a finger is not a limb. In another case a man who at last harvest made $1.25 a day harvesting wheat, gets a pen sion. On the other side is a case in which, owing to a grudge against him, a board refused to recommend a really disabled and needy soldier, -' TT who had served as a captain, nap I pily, there are few frauds.

Inmost cases articles are tendered for this purpose. The tone of the letters shows a deep and com iiendable in terest in the exposition. The peo ple of the State propose to stand by the committee. North Carolina must certainly have a State build ing at Chicago. The State is as signed an admirably located site for this. The building will not only be a place of resort for all North Carolinians, but for the thousands of people in other States who were born here, or w hosts ancestors were from North Ciro lina. In this building all the man ufacturers could have their quar ters, look after correspondence and the State would be noit attractively advertised. Most of the States will have their own buildings. A plan suggested is that 1,000 peopUr in the State give $10 each as the fund for putting up and fitting thi9 building. The business men will no doubt see at once the entirely practical side of the question, and what an advertisement such a build ing will be.
