The vessel was president of the convention to amend the constitution of North Carolina, and for ten days while we attended the sit tings of the convention, we noticed him day after day and he was so thoroughly impressed upon us, from his distinguish ed position and his unique character .that to this day the impression of his personal appearance is as distinct as the photo graph then painted: Dutchy in build, robust in person, a little stooped at the shoulder, apparently a little over five feet in height, hair a grizzly-thin-gray, but not bald, wearing on the street a chip hat of domestic manufacture, a thin homespun coat of domestic make, browny-white in color, trousers match ing with the coat, and a vest of the same material reaching well over the abdominal region.

For a long time the in dustrial classes have been clamorinc for a business man and farmer for governor. Since my recollection. Gov. Holt is the first governor of North Carolina who was not a lawyer. It seems to me he represents as many different interests as any man j'ou can find in the State.

Pat rick (Ireville Nugent, brother of Lord (ireville, and deputy lieutenant of the county of West Meath, Ireland, plead ed guilty to a common assault on Mis Marion Price, and was sentenced to six months' imprisonment with hard lalor. The result of the case created a great sensation, and Mrs. Nugent i said to be prostrated by the "ocial ruin which her husband's action has brought ujKn him. Nugent was advised to plead guilty by his counsel, Mr. Gill, the celebrated lawyer, who had ascertained after careful inquiry that there was no way of impeaching the character or testimony of Miss Prioe. In addition to imprisonment, Nugent was ordered to pay the costs of the plaintiff. The I assault occurred in the compartment of a railway carriage on the London and Brighton railway, on the evening of bnnk holiday. The Grevillen are of illustrious descent.

His election would inspire our people with confidence and bis lofty personal char acter would be guarantee of a faithful, clean administration and dispel any possible fears of political chicanery. I voice the sentiments of all who know j his thick gray-black hair, throw away one half of it and substitute for it a sparse covering of sandy-gray hair. Give a little more plumptness to his lips, with a little less compression. Give Tom Skinner's head a slight re move from an upright balance, a slight stoop from the neck projecting it forward. Change his complexion from brown to blonde. Clothe him in a brown, light, summer coat made and manufactured at home, of the shad type, without the shad longitude, with trousers and vest of the same mate rial, the vest having an abdominal length, and you have as good a like ness of "Uncle Nat" as anybody wants. If you want him in street costume put a home-made chip hat on Tom Skinner's head. Baseball. By Telegraph to the State Chronicle. Washington, May 12.

Good Feeling In Edsetombt. Special Cor. State Chronicle. Tarboro, N. C, May 12. Illus trative of the good feeling and sound democracy prevailing in the Edge combe county convention of the 10th inst. I send the following platform of the unterrified democracy of Edge combe county: "1. That each farmer raise his own supplies ot corn, meat and hay. "2. That every farmer be required to bring some home product to sell every time he comes to town, or he must not be allowed to carry anything back. "3. That cotton and tobacco should be a secondary consideration and only planted as a surplus crop; that by adopting this course every farmer will be placed in a position to have some voice in pricing his commodities, for each farmer to have his own sub-treasury an I to get the full benefit of un limited silver coinage when it comes." The author of this platform, Dr. C. L. Killebrew, is a practical and intel ligent farmer, and has a true appre ciation of the evils underlying our present system of agriculture. The following resolution was en thusiastically adopted: "Resolved, That the democracy of Edgecombe, assuring the democracy of her sister counties of its firm ad herence to the principles of the party, National and State, with one accord recommends to the voters of the State our countyman, Elias Carr, as the most available man to head the State ticket." The Apex Primary. The democratic primary held at Apex was in the mean harmonious. It was largely attended and was called to order by the chairman of the township committee, who stated that it was a democratic meeting, which definition was accepted by those present. After this statement the chairman announced ought not to show a selfish Kpirit. Let us be willing to give and take. I have not a word to say againt-t the other candidates.
