A dis;istrous wreck occurred Tuesday niht at Old Fort, on the Western North Carolina di vision of the Southern railway. The Chat tanooga and Norfolk vestibule limited collided with a heljjer engine, which was backi nr down the mountain. John How ard, fireman, and Engineer William A James, of the limited, were killed. Postal Clerk William Henderson (colored) had his lejr cut off. The accident was caused by Engineer Terrell, of the helper, disre garding an order. Montcomeky, Ala., Nov. 17. The Demo cratic legislative caucus last night on the iirst ballot nominated General E. W. Pet tns for United States senator, to succeed Senator Pugh. The vote stood: Petlus, f7; Oates, t. General Pettus is now 74 years of age, bat is still vigorous mentally and physically. He has served as circuit judge, and had a distinguished war record in the Confederate army, coming out a brigadier general. In IS7 1 he was offered the United States enatorship. but de clined. He is an ardent t ree silver man. Lr:;ii-villi:. Nov.

The grounds of contest are given as irregular ity and fraud in a large number of coun ties. MacoS, Ga.. Nov. CD. Thirty people.

IJrown vvas tried before a jury in Pender county and convicted, but the case was taken to the Supreme Court and the verdict of the lower court was reversed. Jud.oe Faircioth in course of the opinion said : ''Assuming every, fact alleged to be true, we are unable to discover any criminal offence known to the law. We are" referred to no authori ty for the position of the State. We were referred to Code Section 1812, which only prescribes what is a valid marriage; also to Code Section 11 12 which imposes a penalty and declares it to be a misdemeanor for any officer to fail to return process, tc, or for auy person, or for any person, who is not authorized by law, to presume to act as any such officer. "So the case is that of a private cit izen,unofficial, celebrating a marriage between a man and woman with their consent and they are not com plaining, and are presumably satisfied and enjoying their new relation. We are not aware of any statute or nric ciple of the common law declaring the action of the defendant a criminal offence. ' We are not considering the validity or invalidity or tifect of the action of the several patties. Affirm ed." The court did not pass on the val idity of the marriage but asserted that Brown had done nothing punishable by the laws cf the State. Until the Legislature passes a law covering such cases the joker may have his fun performing marriages- It would appear that such a law is necessary as such performances tend to lessen the sacred nesti of the marriage tie. The Legislature which soon comes together in Raiaigh, among its many law makings, might gLe its attention to this fact. onablv sure. j The pressure which wiil be brought to bear on the next legislature along RKViF.w of rkcfxt HAi'Pi-Nixes 1 this line will be sufficient to cause TilKOCGiiorr Tin: state. j them to take steps towards forming ; such an institution.

This is an occurrence which happens very seldom. Dr. Eben Alexander, of North Carolina, Minister to Greece, who has been home on a short visit has re turned to his post. He was formerly Professor of Greek at the University and will probablyfill that position after his return to the Uuited States. Southern Pines, in Moore county, probably themost noted winter re sort for Northerners in North Caroli na, has been formally opened for the season. A iNorthern capitalist has spent millions in fitting up the place. It now has the appearance of a nmal town. The Caucasian, Mr. Butler's organ, has had some trouble during the last week. Judgments amounting to $224.24 were obtained against it. This money could not be raised so the office was closed temporarily by the sheriff. When the news reach Mi. litu. -r that his paper was in dis tress he came to its rescue and paid off the biils. A great many of the democrats of the State are sick and tired of the political influences which Raleigh exerts and want to see the conventins and headquarters tak en away from there. Of course we would like to see them brought to Charlotte, but Greensboro is more central and they should be taken there. Observer.

One man here in town, known to have been a Democrat, was slow about voting and an eye was kept on him. Finally'a suspicious Republi can was seen to take him to one side and have a long talk with him. When they at last came out on the street a Democrat approached the pair, but it was no good the money had been paid the Republican was seen to dn?p the money in the man's pocket. Plenty of these occurrences were noticeable but none so plain as this case Greensboro Record. As the conclusion of an elaborate editorial expressing regret at the de feat of Mr. Bryan, the Watch Tower, the organ of the Disciple's church in North Carolina. says : "These are the leading causes of Mr. Bryan's defeat. Such a man can survive such a de feat. He i-. enthroned in the hearts--of the people, ar.d his sun is by no means set. The people will yet call him to gu de the sh:pof State. There are not enough forces on earth to keep Mr. Bryan out of the White House. Be patient and the day will come.
