The circumstances were these- It was mi sonic .niblic occasion at the North, in Baltimore, at a Demo- j 'atic meeting held in "front of Guys Hotel "Virginian', Sever al speakers were '"nvited to make addresses. Winston was on hand in fact he had just moved there from North Carolina to live, and was yet an utter stranger. With the cheek calculated to draw tears from the eyes of a brass mon key, our inipertubable hero 'min gletl" freely in the crowd and asked them to call for "Winston of North Carolina.' Thus beguiled, the unsuspecting citizens Jdid callj but the hour of triumph ' was short. Winston hatiu't got out the first sentence K-fore he was ordered off the rostrum by the indignant crowd. Then he folded his tent andsilently stole away. "Norfolk Virginian, Tin' event occurred in Pennsylvan ia, and not in Baltimore as the 'Virginian has it. El).

The old milkman went on doing well, his horse do-in-4- him good service, until one day he stopped in front of the house of one of his customers and went in to I'liver his inilk. While in the house the fire alarm struck aud the horse started down the street as hard as he could go. Awav went the milk cans, wagons and all.

When asked what lie thought of Bayard he j Unity declared that he would rath er see any other man in the coun try President. Speaking of Til den's candidacy, he said if he got elected and delivered his inaugiir :il he would never give his Vice President any chance of the suc cession, but would keep himself beforcjthe country as the Presi dent for his lull term of four years, even if he died the day alter the inauguration. About the part he took in coming to the rescue of Garfield after the nomination he admitted that it went greatly against the grain, in consequence ot Washburn's and Garfield's co quetting with the convention while pretending to serve other interests than their own. Roll Call In Heaven An incident is related by a chap lain who was in the army during one of our hard fought battles. The hospital tents had been fill ing up as the wounded men had been, brought to the .rear. Among the number was a young niau mortally wounded, and not able to speak. It was near mid night, and many a lovedjone from hoai'i lay sleeping 011 the battle field that sleep which knows no waking until Jesus calls for them. Tlni surgeons had been serving their rounds of duty, and for a moment all was quiet. Suddenly this young man , before speechless, calls :ii a clear, distinct voice, "Here!" The surgeon hastened to his side, and asked what he wished, ''Nothing", said he. 'the.y are calling the roll in heaven, and I was answering to my name.' lie turned his head aud was gone gone to join the great army whose uniform is washed white in the blood of the 'Lamb. lleader,Jin the great, roll call of eternity, jour name will be heard. Can you answer "Here !" Are you one of the soldiers of Christ, the great Captain cf Salvation ! Wanted His Honey Back. The Register of Deeds of Hock ingham, says the "Iloeket," receiv ed the following jKtstal card a few days ago : , N. 0 Sept. U'th, '83. Mr..

Respectfully, A young man in Wilson, not a century ago, had the same expe rience, although he did not make application to have his money re funded. The debating society of a rural village has decided that it doesn't look consistent for a girl to be mem ber of church and wear powder on her hair to catch the young men.

This, with a possible oU per acreyield, shows the vast' difference in the money power of i the two crops. "Citizen." Deep plow ing w as lecomineiiile'l over one hundred years ago by l)i. Franklin, when lie said: "Plough deep while sluggards sleep, And you will have corn to sell ami to keep." Again, he gave the farmers a broad hint w hen he said: 'He that by tlm plow would thrive,)! Himself inust either hold or drive." We were shown Tuesday, says the ''Southerner." a pea vine which came from an ordinary black pea, covering over two hundred square feet of ground. About one half of the peas have been gather ed, these measured a little more than three pints, and numbered 5700. When all the. peas are gath ered it is certain that the increase from this one pea will be at least ten thyusand fold. The vine will be on exhibition'at the fair. We don't know that the Indian Bureau will benefit the Red man greatly by depriving him of his fire-water, if the case of Skumka, chief of the Umatillas .f Oregon, be a sample of the average results. This noble son of the forest was suffering from something akin to cramp-colic, and after pleading in vain for whiskey, with which he had beeu accustomed to ease his pain, turned, in despair, to Jamai. ca Ginger, and disposed of 20 bot ties. The ginger did not make the cure but it killed the chieftain, who died in great agony. He was buried with Indian pomp, and his horse killed in order to give hiut a free ride to the happy-huuting grounds, and the entire tribe is in mourning and wofully lament his untoward death and the absence of whisk y. TERRIBLE RATE OF INTEREST. We know -f a merchant who pays not to exceed 8 cents for meat aud compels those who trade with him under the lien system to pay 14 cents nearly "one hundred per cent" aud that too when he will get his money in two months. Is itwonderful that there is a grow ing demand that the lien system be abolished by law t This way of doing things will ruin the labor in any country. 100 per cent for two months is COO per cent per 'annum. The Farmers' Convention. A mass convention of the farm ers of North Carolina will be held in the grand stand, at the next State Fair. The first meeting to be held on Tuesday, the ICtli, and from day to day during the week. The objects of this convention will be to unite the farmers of the state in inexpensive State, county and neighborhood organizations .for mutual improvement and co-operation as farmers. We like this idea, and think some farmers from every township in the State should attend this State mass 'meeting, and thereafter, organize county, and township meetings for mutual f"T oveuient and protection. Whv not . .Men-mints organize tliein selves into ltoards of trade; the Physicians form medical societies; I 1 nit' i..iwers legal societies; Printers and Telegrapher.-, unions; the Druggists into tics and. in fact, most every the into im- I 1,1111.11 (ii caning in nie ot any I poiiaime have organized soniel ins j for their mutual protection and j improvement.

I Knew before I cann ot' the court cs. and hospitality of New Engl. mil, but I was not pre pared for the warmth ot the recep tion I have leccixed from all class es of the people of Massachusetts.

(Applause) in my speeches here I have en tleavoretl to express what I know to be the sentiment all thrnugh the South, ami that is that we want all our past ttitl'ercnces to lm Inn md 111 I In- grave of oblivion. Here in 011r magnificent cities of the Novi h. your splendidly decl mjciI country, you may not feel the iieuj of this absolute rt-fiiicilial 1011 as iimcli as w e tlo at the South. et 1 ai sure that. if on stop'.., think lor a moment, you will set that troiti a business point of view, the time has come when we all should stand as American citi.eiis, recognizing our mutual and coin interests.

We w;in t to see our section of the country great, prosperous and wealthy, as your section. We have come to leain something ' how these weie achieved by you. and we have learned one important lesson that in New F.iiglaml y on have no room for idlers and loalcis; that New Kngland has been buill up by the energy, push and perse verance of her sons ami daughters. All through North Carolina 1 have tried to inculcate I b it lesson, lo impress upon our people that while we look for capital ami labor from the North, and stand ready to welcome them, yet, after all. the destiny of the South remains .. ;.i. 11... ........1 , .,)' tlm Smith. Anil Mil 11 I HV r, .j.t.F - that destiny can only be made j grand by observing two principles.; It must be recognized in gootl ! frith, with a fixed purpose lolive up to it, that there is .0 be no separation of the sections of this great country. All the mountain ranges of the con u try run North and South; nature made no lines of separation, and God in his wisdom has decreed that there shall be no imaginary separation. And from the day tin flag which I followed in the storm of battle for four years was furled in lSu., to me it was furled forever, and I stood again beneath the fold of the Stars and StrijH-s, the ting of our common country. Applause. The other great lesson that 1 have tried to impress upon the people of North Carolina is that the destiny ami prosjierity of the State and the whole South depend ujhhi ihe ener gy ami enterprise of our sons and daughters; that her wasted fields must be made to boom again by work, and that work is honorable in all men in every M'ctioti oft he country. Applause. These senti ments, I am haypy to lie able to assure you, ns a visit to our State demonstrates, are taking hold of our people- It is prospering; new interests are being built up and old ones revived.
