Extract from the Lenoir Topic. tSaturday's weather was Confederate weather. Providence smilad upou the veter ans, the weather was propitious, the sun shone and tha day was as lovely as a day in Spring. What prophet could have foretold it ? 'Twns far beyond the ken of Old Probabilities. lie knew not what sort of weather Saturday would bring forth. The great mass of cloudn that had brooded o'er the whole country for weeks, drooping and drizzling and breaking up all the fairs, was broken ut) itself and a rift made in it fr the sun to shine for one day only, and that day for the Contederate veterans, and after that the rain began again. Bright and early Saturday morn ing crowds of citizens of the county began pouring into Lenoir, and every king aud evervoody was j a 11 oi nie ai d bii.stlsuir. Veterans, bronzed and zzkd. one-leggtd men, one trms 1 men, citizens, men, women und child ren moved about and jostled together in their holiday clothea find all were I' ay and upon pleasure bent. Wagons acd teams of all sorts were fcatterej about and greet hampers of provisions hidden away in them foretold the coming conflict of the dinner hour. Inrly in the morning the Stars ahd tr-tripes were rlung to the breeze irom tli'3 masthead of the signal t'ole and wftved bravely over the turons be neath. On entering the town at 10 o'clock one had an inspiring scer.e to greet his gaze. The streets were black with people ana that mysterious hum and buzz of a great multitude, its breath of life, reaching his ear?, had h-3 effect upon hitu that presence in a crowd always docs upon individuals, j quickly assimilating mm and cnarg- g him with the magnetism or the mass. What a stirring time it was ! .Eve rybody was in a hurry and yet seetn- "o'y doing nothing. 'Vanees et erans, mounted men outttrmiiK: Rangers," the veterans called them galloping madly up and down, through and across the streets, urging on their fiery, foaming steeds as if life and leath depended upon thcirexpedition, j And in nine cases out of ten they were only in quest of a pin with which to adjust their sashes in gracetul folds. hese horsemen numbered about twsnty and were relatives of the vet erans, who were too young to.be in: the war, organized under tie com mend of Captain T. M. Vance to act is a guard of honor to the veterans and, riding iu front of the column, to clear the way for it. They formed on Spring street and awaited orders to march. This body of men was organ ized by Chief Marshal IIarjer for the purpose of clearing the way for the progress of the column and to facili tate its movements by keeping order. lhe committee of arrangements and the Chief Marshal met at headquar ters in the i loneer Library and at half past ten o'clock orders were given to the companies to form upon the pub lie square. Ihis was done while the Conover brass band played Dixie and other inspiring music. v hen it wa3 time for the column to take up the line of march, the mounted escort war marched around by College Avenue to pass in review before the veterans drawn up in line. As they rode up, holding their pranc ing steeds to the ground, the martial blast of the trumpets made them square themselves proudly back in their seats and theyr felt as if they could ride right up to the cannon s mouth and extract the ball. By the time they had ridden the gauntlet of those old vets all the starch was gone, their horses had quit prancing and they rode as limp as it they were go iug to mill. The veterans called them "Buttermilk Hangers," guj'ed them and chaffed them all over with good natured rslliery. It was all in good humor, for the veterans began to feel good and to remember h.w they used to bedevil the cavalry in the same way during the war. And all the time they were proud of the boys be cause they laughed at the old soldiers' jokes and they appreciated the motive these young fellows had in doing honor to the grand old soldiers who had smelled pjwder, by acting as a guard of honor and as an escort to them. From the corner of West Boundary and West Main streets to the corner of Spring and Church Streets the vet erans, wooden legged and all, marched and kept splendid step to the beating of the bas3 drum by Air. G. W. Hoi loway, who was an old war drummer. On Spring Street, Mr. P. L. Baker, son oi the old war nfer, William Ba ker, now gone to his rest, started in and accompanied the drum with such stirring aira on the fife as "Polly put the kettle on" and the like. At the cound of this familiar music, under which they all enlisted", the veterans gave the veil that we nave been want ing to hear. It was the . genuine old Confederate yell. We had nothing to do with it but when they yelled we listened and yelled too. The streets on the whole line of march were crowded with spectators and the column en all sides and be hind was accompanied by a solid and compact mass ol moving humanity. e, Alajor ii. v. a. Jtiarpcr, vdiiei Marshal, in a few happy and appro priate remarks introduced to the vast audience Col. Clinton Albert Ciller, ate of the United Statr-s Army, who was engaged during the whole war in the West against the Caldwell troops iu the Western army. col. cilley's addeiss. As we will have the pleasure of .printing Col. Cilley's address in full Voni the manuscript next week, we will not mar it by an attempt at giv ins a summary. It is sufficient to say that it was a broad, libera!, weii-timed tC't;c!i and was thoroi in h nv with tae spirit of :as audience. We will report a pretty cpis le or incident M r. o 1 1 r.-i 1 1 it 1 1 1 in of f i i r' p iKP ( it it written address. At the nd of his address, Col. Cilley said, as he took a tattered old ha: tie-flag from '.vjicfi re iajor Liarner the RAILROAD RULE. the 58th .Nortn Carolina Kogiment. It was carried through the campaign of the western army. This star in my i-i lit hand I cut from the ilug of my . 11 Regiment as it hung by a few i.ilkeu threads, just t:fter the battle of ".J-.-ntonviliC, where these two Regi : i. nts liKt l-:r the last tiiiie in action i:s they had ofa-ii mot bt-f-ie.

Hansom, Senior U. S. Senator from North Car oina, aroso and proceeded to addnss t!ie audience. KXTIIACT-S Fl'.OM i-KXATOR H VNSOM's si'i:rxir. Ladus, C:i:ti''tde, Fdfcw- Country hi.

I Lave seen greater conoourses of ;..o- . ) I have beheld hundreds of thou sands oi my fellow citizens massed to i y. l:er 'upon some great occasion in Washington ; I have seen great armies ; i:.rsha!ied ujion the plains of battle ; I Lave seen a million of people g:.th erod together in the great metropolis i i'liie country. But, my countrymen, as i stand here, a North Carolinian, hi 1 look into the faces of you, my fellow-citizens, and p-iaze upon the jve'y North Carolina landscape arouna us, v.itn the blessed b;ue mountains in the distance, as I vie.v the lovely tints of the autumn foliage, aud as I contemplate the noble ca :so, thrt calls us together reflecting upon those things, I can only say that no occasion can be more interesting to mc. than the present. I. listened with great interest to the wise, well Maed and eloquent words of the gallant gen tlemen who preceded me. A glorious thing it is, indeed, that ia our times it has come to pa3 that Judge Cilley, a soldier who fought on the Federal side in the late war can say such things as these here in a Southern town and that his words should meet with universal approbation. Here followed a tribute to confeder ate soldiers and "the women, G d b'ess em as Gen. Mad. Leach loves to put it. Gen. Ransom always talks aoout the women and Iiie Sentinel has a vague suspicion that therein lies one secret of his success. I agree with Judge Cilley in his remarks about the origin of the war. It is preposterous to say that North ern men would have fought just to free the slaves or tnat the .Southern men would have fought jus j to keep the negroes in slavery. The majority of the Southern soldiers owned no slaves. The property in slaves would i a ve been safe under Lincoln. The caus3 of the war hinged imon a sec tional difference between the North and South about the functions of gov ernment oi:0 taking stronger views than the other ou the subject of States' Rights. Each thought itscif right. " After the playing of Dixie by the band, Col. W. H. II. Cov.des arose and addressed the veterans for a few dilutes ia his usual felicitous style. NOTES AND COMMENTS. Gen. Ransom held a levels and handshaking ou the platform after the speaking and most of the old sol diers came up and grasped him, the old commander of many of them, warmly by the hand. Right here The Sentinel wants to tell an incident about that HAND of Senator Ransom's. It is related that the HAND once met a man whom it didn't know, but the HAND wssn't to be oufdone, so it inquired the person's name and with a hearty 'How are you, Mr. Jones," it gripped upon that person and siuce then the person has never failed to use its in fluence for the HAND. They do say that whenever a man shakes it he is made a life-long friend of its owner. Senator Zeb. Vance was invited but he is trying to complete his residence near Black Mountain before Congress meets and couldn't come. Over 3,000 people were at the re union and it was a big day for Lenoir. Already the talk is to have an even more successful re-union next year than this, if that is possible. It will probably be earlier in the season. A permanent organization and free din ner to all the veterans will be certain . features of next year's re-union. WHY THEESr AXD.WEST CAN C NO T TRADE TOGETHER. if fiillgJi Freight Kates arc Killiug Our Traffic. Some Sensible Words From t?:e Goldsboro Argus. An item appeared in the Sunday's issue of our esteemed cotcmporarv the New hern Journal, under the above heading, which for its importance, we give beiow in fail : "A merchant in Newbern received from Salem, N. C, a few days ago two barrels of common clay pipes, the freight on which was $1.35 per barrel. The fi eight on the same from Balti more, nearly three times the distance, would have been twenty cents per bar rel. We call the Governor's nttcntion to this little matter to further satisfy him it possible that the great railroad corporations doing business in this State have "divided the empire," arid in the terms of division it has been de creed that there shall be no traffic be treen the people east of Goldsboro and those vest of that point.

Scales was i eing imposed upon, that he had been prejudiced by inter ested parties, not only against the in terest of the section through winch the A. & N. C. it. R. runs, but against the people of that section as well. This too. before even lie had made known his decision in the matter of the extension. This is a grievous charge to be made against the Chief Executive of a great State by a personal and political friend. We say greivous, because it is a crime in a public man to be igno rant of the interest committed to his care, and none but the ignorant are prejudiced. The Governor could, and we be lieve should have given his consent that the the managers might try to float the bonds of the A. & C. R. R., for the purpose of making the exten sion. They could only have failed if he had consented. In case of failure we would have been as well off as now and in case of success we would have had what the hearts of this people yearn for, what they demand, and what the interest of all parts of the State dictate. The story of the pipes is only one of a thousand. No man who lives iu Eastern North Caroltna knows how an apple grown in Western North Carolina tastes, unless after climbing the mountains he has climbed the tree and plucked the, to us, forbidden fruit. This too, from the simple fact that a barrel of apples could be ship ped from the extreme North for much les3 than it could be shipped fro 11 Western North Carolina. The interest of any State is, that her peopie should be united by the iad:-.-soi a; .ble bene's of commerce: ; bar. : lori'r as this i:.f:i?:i;n rnilr.iml f n ritt ! taste ofWestem North Carolina ap ples. To such as these we have not been addressing ourselves ; in their minds the first elements ot the State craf; does not exist, in their hearts the seeds of patriotism have not even yet been planted. If we can be allowed to somewhat transform a text on politi cal economy taken from the great ori ginal work oa all true political econo my, we will close by saying, where your commercial iuteiests tend there wid your heart be also.

The latter had a jug-full of li quor iu the house ;;t the time, and for some inexplicable reason cou'd get no more. When his distinguished guest arriven lie set the jug out on the table and invited the: Governor of North Carolina to make himself at home. The guest drank copiously, the host moderately, to preserve at once his soberness and his liquor. At last he saw with dismay that his guest had drunk the last drop of the precious i.'opjor. The guest was too drunk to know it, but he missed the fami liar invitation of the host to take another drink.
