His goods are always just what hp tells vou and no one need hesitate to accept Mr. GuUCY's statement or that of his clever ana pome .. known as one of the best Tiotning estab lishments in Raleigh. We speas irom experience, having for several years known the house, and during iu iuuC have given him all our patronage. ve advise our readers and menus io uu him their orders. Raleigh News-Observer : Dr. Curry's address, delivered Defore the two Houses on yesterday was a masterly ef fort in behalf of a permanent common school system. The Doctor well sustain ed his established reputation for oratory, and we think he impressed his audience with the conviction that he is a man of greater power and breadth than had been understood! We hoard good judges, gen tlemen not unacquainted with public men, declare that his address was the finest they had ever heard. Our business men, as in many other places, are complaining of poor collections and straightened circumstan ces ; but feel confident that each and every onejof them will prove equal to the occasion and will sustain the credit and reputation which he has abroad. We notice failures here and there all over the South, but as yet we have had no such calamity j This speaks well for our bus iness men, and it gives us pleasure to note it. Some of our youths, whon Cupid has been dealing with for the first time, AVould do well to remember that "everything is fair in love;" and that, when an agreement is made between three all more or less affected, to ride a few hundred yards on the train to have the last "By-bye," each one has a right to g) farther even to the first depot without any breach of contract, and re tun at his own expense, especially if the objtct in pursuit offers no objection. Our schools opened last Mon day, and the attendance shows that our people are not indifferent to the import ance of the education of their children. T'nis it, the right view of it, and we hope that the cry of hard times will not in fluence any one to keep his children from school. Educate them and thus prepare tliem for business and happiness. There is still room, and those who have not commenced would do well to do so at once and thereby get the benefit of all the session. As has been before stated, the teaching force has been increased in the Male Academy, and the boys may not hesitate to come in, knowing that they will receive proper attention. Thanks to the marshals of the approaching Anniversary at Wake Forest College for the elegant invitation received, llie following are the officers : President, C. C. Briggs, Secretary, II. P. Markham; fie debaters onthe Aff. are L. L. Jenkins and D. M. Austin ; on the Neg., V. F. .Marshall and II. B. Folk ; the orators of evening are Ed. S. Alderman and Thomas Dixon.

As we were coming down some days ago, it was our pleasure to meet President Battle, of the University, whom our people know to be one of the most energetic workers in the educational in terest of the State. He gives gratifying statements as to the number of students at the University the number now being two hundred or more. Pres. Battle is a man of very liberal views ; he docs not confine himself to the interest of Chapel Hill alone, but takes pleasure in speaking words of encouragement for all institu tions of learning in the country. We hope the present year may be one df great success to his institution, Doth in an in crease in the number of students and in the scholarly attainments of those already there. Prof. Gore, who has been connected with the institution but a short time, has added considerable strength to the Faculty, and is highly esteemed by all who know him. It was our pleasure, also, to spend a chort while with Mr. W. W. Hall, editor of the "Roanoke News." The "News" is one of our esteemed ex changes, and we are much interested in its continuation and success. nig, -At Cost, Ready-made Cloth- T arlioic' TTrtcc! f"Zrn-wl c? X- r N. B. Jo&ky & Co.

He was one of the first graduates of the College, and was for a long time a mem ber of its Faculty. In this capacity, he reflected honor and credit upon his wor thy alma mater. He was pastor o Mt. Vernon Baptist Church for 32 years, and of Henderson Church for 20 y cars, in both of which charges he was greatly respected and tenderly loved. He was, indeed, a most sincere christian, a good, practical preacher, a faithful exemplar of the faith of his denomination and a man of whom North Carolina ought to be proud, and whose memory ought to be embalmed in the heart of every true christian North Carolinian, We tender our sympathies to the bereaved family and to his large circle of friends and ad mirers. We have a local on newspaper agents, but we forbear to print. We will only ask the following questions, after having said that they are not exempt from the ills of life : If one of these should be seen promenading the streets of aiiy of our towns with a chair (rocking chair) on Ins back, which he has taken in part payment for his paper, ought any body to say anything?
