' the interviews had with theu 127 were
!i- talked with : Tilden is tho first choice of

i eleven: others ncceptablo, Hendricks
commands tlie first choice of 12, aud 2S
others, would accept him. Xiueteeu

belieye that Grant will bo tho radica

f j TRIP TO MOCKSVILLE.
.'( A ridp into the country during tl e
Jicautiful,; weather wp have -had for the
list ten or twelyo days i&an incident in
tiio life of one who rarely indulges in
such luxuries particularly refreshing,
even in absence of tho charms of priug
i pr early Bummer; . The plowman's steady
' march and the turning glebe, the smokiuy
f jrus1i heaps, and the sounds which
usually : accompany the opening of. the
'summer's tpjl on -the farms greet us now,
; and break the monotony of the dead
wiuter weather. 1
i'A trip to IocisvHe is iu deed a small
matter to tlioso who frequently travel the
road ; leading to that pljvpe, and o such
persons we have nothing to tell that can

t count of the changes which fleeting time
I bps w rough ti-those now dwelling in dis
Jiiut States and territories whose hiemo-
ry of places, tilings and arsons in the
mother State lingers with them like
mother loyo, The road via the new and
f flourishing village of I'VoiiMm, four iniles
jfiortli! of Sidisbury, is a new thing to
a jttcU 'pci-sons. It w5 almost uu k now n
before the--war tlie village wholly so,
for it has como into existence sjnee those

The yillage is located on a sandy plaiu
three or four hundred yards east of the
iiureli, and comprises a Hpulutiou of
Tfrtrmers and working1 people chieflj, widi
'i jvrhjijis a few who havojjoue in for ihe
wiKe oi me educational u.ijyrtpinges to be

happily thi"yngh his
earthly. terui., He would be more apt to
find a iireat-graud sou or a stranger
driving the plow through the earth where
stood his once Jianpr home. There are
evidences of this "our wayn aH aloug the
road to Mocksville,. (The old places that
remain, show too evident signs of decay,
while others have , uisiipneureu, . Ieaviug

! We supptise there ! never was- a town
located in the State i with a fatter sur
rouiidiiig country than Mocksville, , or
yyliich bloonied into existence with more
exuciancei It floHtished for a time like
a garden of tierbs, under the gentlest
dews,and showers, aud the richest an
most genial sunlight. Then- canio
the maturity of summer, and their the
sombreuess of autumn, to be succeeded by
tho bleakness of winter. The winter
season of its exist ence has "been long, bu t
thisalouer-cjould never have wi-ought the
hurt sho h;iar boruc The recent stoini
by which the whole South was desolated,
swept here j with equal havoc, jkvreckiug
.fortunes and laying waste the fairest
tilings of earthly existence. The beam
ing light jof hope j which succeeded it
eallediutoj aptivify !l;itent energies, and
fpr'a wliilej all Was I again cheirfu!uess.
Then camb tho liuancial troubles of
'7m 77, and then burst out the jwinsome
gracesof belie IVinston to set tho heads
of people in a whirlj and Mocksville grew
tame, and like a commonplace maid, was
sljghted by some pf her old lovers, who
ran to court the smiles of that
coquettish little jade.
! Hut the j world moves on with its- uns
and downsj aud the time is near at hand
for Mocksville to come up agaiuj. She is
to have a railroad.: jThe mute is laid oat,
Tho gradiiig stakes j mark the liue, antl
eight or ten miles of the road -Wd at the
Monvesvillij end are completed. The
grading wWk willfbe commenced at
Mocksville in a fewldays. The: work is
iu gwxl hands.and will go right on to com
pletion. There may be some (delay ou
the Winston end, btjt that too wll doubt
less be made, The prospective effects of
this advantage are already visible. The
old maid's lovers may return when they
see her in tuck, and at the least, whether
ttiey do oi- not, there will bo plenty
others to acknowledge her attractions and
to seek her favor, j
The stiangwr would be impressed with
tho idea that Urn town of Mocksvilhrtook
a; notion, just after the war, to niu away

Iia'.L'incre S;n Washlnston Letters the Un.
A numberl'if leading Democrats, mem
bers of the Houses, and others, have been
in formal consultation with regard to the
course to puisne if flip President should
'undertake tp' carry out the views and
wixlies of the stalwart: portion of the Re
publican party. Tlw Sentiment of those
present was tliat the eit'oi t shoitlil he to
make the session as short as possible;
that it would not be piolirablo to pro
tract the session if there sliould be the ap
pearance of irreconcilable antagonism be
tween llio I'lesideut jand Cong.ieas It
was suggested that tlio first thipg to be
done would be to incorporate in one hill
the repeal "of tho jnrdrstest , oath; with
perhaps a new. provision for the projier
selection -f United .States jurors, tlta. ex
clusion of trops fronij the,polU fand the
repeal of the election laws ; that if the
l'lesideiit should Veto'tliis bill,' to' attach
it to one of th vtpprdpriHtiou I i Is; that
tiicn, if the 1 Ye.. i.. cut vetoed the nppro
priatiou i.iil. for Cougtx'ss t immediatcly
au.joiiru, and not rtiinain in session to
continue any struggle; over the! matter;
that if th President then cal!e.l another
extra session to go thunugh thesiime form
of proceeilings, and if ho repitated. his
vetoes to adjourn again. The boljef was,
Siowever, cxpresel that the President
would not le so obstinate in this mat
ter as ho has indicated. This will ap
pear hereafter. The matters spoken of
may be diseased more fully aud more
formally in the Senate Democratic caucus
whicli wjll meet on Saturday, tho 15th,
prov bled the time is not all occupied in the
more important busines of parcelling out
thespoils. It isgeneraly auticipatedamong
leading Denioyi at thiit, liotwithstandiiig
interel cd lejMirt to tlie contrary all the
Democnitic iiM-nlerg-elect of the House
will.ltc on hand on the 18th of .March, with
possibly not more than one. or two exc-ep-tioiis.
Iii every State 'an active man has
lceii designated to look after tlio mem
bers and s;e that nothing is left Undone
to have theni all on baud.;
A funny scene was wjtntsssed a few
days Jiifo in the Federal Court at Dan
ville, Va., the judge of which (Uives), it
will be rt'collecteil, jecently Ptsfructed
his grand Jury to indict a number of
county judges for not putting negroes on
the juries. Ajcojored hppi named :Gravely
was indicted for selling ' liquor without
license. When he saw the jury before
which he was to bo tried,' alMut! fnuall
divided ; lictweeii whito and black, he
exchiimed, -."For . God Aliiiighty's sake
don't Itrt'theni niggeis try me!''' Efforts
were made to pacify him, but he never
lK"camo ro.oiu'jlod, ! He insish-d that
"niggers would hang n maw just to sec
him kick." . j i i , ,
Mr. Shobeij withdraws from the Secre
taryship of the Senate in the interest ol
Hon. A. M. Waddell. Mr. Waddell is a
repiesentatiye Caroliniau, and the pi ess
and people of the State commend him
to the favor of thp Senate. The! witb-
dawal of Mr. Shober was a geperous act
by a nian acenstonjed to do generous
deeds. Hal. Acirw. 1
