Henderson, Member of Congress from theSerenth District. ' Hon. John S. Hendeison, who has recently been re-elected to represent the Seventh District in the 50th Con gress, was born in Rowan county, Jan uary 6th 1846. He was prepared for college at Dr. Wilson's school and en tered the University of North Caroli na January 1862, where he pursued his studies until Nov. 1864, -when he entered the Confederate army and served until the surrender as a pri vate in Co. B., 10th Regiment N. C. State troops. He read law under HON. JOHN 8. Chief Justice Pearson, and obtained his county court license in Jnne, 1866 and his superior court license in June, 1867. He applied himself zealously to the practice of his profession in which he has been successful. He has always resided in Salisbury. In Sept. 1874, he married Miss Bessie B. Cain, of Asheville. He has never sought office but has seen a good deal of po litical life. In 1871 he was eksted to the proposed Constitutional Conven tion, beating his late competitor, Dr J. G. Ramsey, 497 votes, running 102 votes ahead of the Democratic ticket. Mr. Henderson declined a nomination for the lower house ot the General As sembly in 1872. He was elected to the Constitutional Convention of 1875 and took a prominent part in the proceed ings of that memorable body. In 1876 he was elected to the House and was a leading and valuable member, having been the author and draftsman of many of the most important statuets ! adopted at the session of the General Assembly. He had been elected by a majority of 1,006, when Vance's ma jority in Rowan was 863 and Tilden's 868. In 1S79 he was triumphantly elected to the State Senate from Row an and Davie, running about 475 votes ahead of his ticket. In the upper chamber as well as in the lower, he distinguished himself by his sagacity, his industry a nd zeal, as a true repre sentative of the people and did much towards shaping the best legislation of the session. In 1881 he was selected by the General Assembly as one of the three commissioners to codify the stat utelaws of the State and in this ca pacity rendered conspicuous service. On the 9th of September, 1884, he was nominated for Congress, by the Democratic convention of the 7th dis trict, and was opposed by his old com petitor, .Dr. J. G, Ramsey, one of the shrewde-t and best posted politicians 'ia the State. After a laborious and most exciting campaign, Mr. Hender son beat his opponent 3,411 votes. He was again nominated for Con gress this year and was re-elected on November 2nd, his only competitor being Mr. Walker , Third Party candidate. The latter, was defeated by a large majority. " ' " vi . mm- PRES- Places and , Mr. Henderson is now in the prime tof life and in the full maturity of his powers and will worthily represent a 'district which has given the wisdom of many distinguished men to the chief councils of the country. During his first term in Congress Mr. Henderson has been an industri ous, hardworking representative, ever watchful over the best interest ef his district and his constituency. Thor oughly conscientious and honest, he served bis people, im partially and af forded general satisfaction. HESCERSON. An Earthquake Story. , From the Geldsbor Messenger. Through the kindness of a friend we were shown an announcement of a thrilling story, to be begun in the National Weekly Story Paper, pub lished in Philadelphia, entitled " The Charleston Earthquake ; or, Adrift Amid the Ruins," by Walter F.

Timely in every respect and treating in the most graphic and eflective manner of a theme that is at present engrossing popular attention, we hope this admir able and dramatic serial will find hosts of readers. With the earthquake that recently overwhelmed Charleston as the centre-piece, the gifted author )roceeds to develop a capital story of ove, emotion and adventure that will be sure to create a furore in every sec tion of the United States.
