With balmy sir and snony skies.
After awhile a dsy of rest

After awhile the oehlag heart

And as the flying dr depart

After awhile the right will reign,
And conquered wrong will toae its sway;
While ancient error’s iey chain,

confidently expected some authentie an

ISSUED BY QGV. CABB, NAMINU TQUttH-
DAY, NOVBMBBB THIBTIBTH.
Oov. Carr yesterday issued his Thanks*
giving Proclamation to the people of the
State according to the usual custom. It
ii handsomely printed and bears the great
seal of North Carolina in a pretty blue
tint. The following is the proclamation;
Statb or Nobth Cabolina, ExecU'
At the close of another year it is meet
and proper that u a State and nation we
should give thanks to the Author of every
good and perfect gift for the many bless
ings vouchsafed to us. The people of
North Carolina have much for whioh to
be thankful The ravages af the storm,
the blight of disease and the serious ills
which have befallen some other States
Ood in His mercy has spared us. Our
lands have responded to our labors, and
although not as abundantly as heretofore,
still we have sufficient to preserve us from
hunger and want.
In compliance, with tbe time-honored
and beautiful CbfiHtian custom of our
oommonwtiuttb, and in conformity with
the recommendation of the President of
the UniteJ States, I, Elias Carr, Gover
nor of the Stale of North Carolina, do
appoint Thursday, the thirtieth day of
November, 1803, as a day of public
thanksgiving and praise to God. I earn
estly request the people of the State to
observe this day in a suitable manner,
hying aside, as far as possible, their sec*>
ular pursuits, and to assemble in their
usual places of worship and with thank
ful hearts give praise and thanksgiving.
And that every heart may rejoice, let us
remember with that charity which is twice
blessed the poor and afflieted, the widow
and the orphan, the unfortunate inmates
of our charitable institutions, and be
especially mindful of our fast aging heroes
at their own firesides and in the Soldiers'
Given under my hand, and the Great
Seal of the Slate of North Carolina, at
the City of Raleigh, this 8th day of No

of our American Independence.
By the Governor:
S. F. Tblfaib,
WINTER IS COMING.
aPBCIAti ATTBNTtON TO TUB UBLl>LEBB
The northern winds, the cool nights,
the hoar frost, all remind us that winter
will soon be upon us. Have you prepared
for it? To enjoy the winter months, or
rather to deprive them of much of the
physical discomfort that usually comes
with them, wo should as far as possible
prepare for then. Before they are fully
upon us, fuel should be procured and
housed; substantial clothing prepared for
the household; some iVesh welesome read
ing matter should bo procured for the
children; food and shelter provided for
live stock, and even the dog kennels should
not be overlooked. Souc may smile at
these su^estions, especially the last in the
above list. But we have made it for
purpose. It is too much the custom of
our people, living in what are called the
warmer States, to wake little or no provi
sion for the comfort aod protection of
domestio animals. Tbe Bible says “the
merciful man regardeth the life of his
beast." According to this stat)meot many
of our people would not be regarded as
merciful to the beasts that serve them and
look to them for protection. The faithf\il
hoise that has broken the stubborn sod
and pulled the plow that tilled your crop,
and then drew the wagon that hauled
your produce to market, deserves better
treatment than to shiver all night in the
open barns in which he is often stabled.
The faithful milch cow that has fed you
and your little ones through the summer,
deserves a better retreat than the open
leaky shed in which she is often sheltered.
Shame upon the man who will suffer her
to spend her long winter nights in the open
air, while the pittless rain or sleet falls
upon hci! And poor old Fido whose bay
ing has often scot the light fingered theif
about his business, deserves better treat*
ment than to shiver upon the thin mat on
the front porch through the long night.
Homely talk, all this; but our people do
need attention to homely matters and
home comforts. Ijct those who are carc»
less, no longer neglect these things. At*
tention to the helpless animal creation
about us may be a means of our own
growth in grace, aod certainly is in accor
dance with the religion of Christ. “Bles
sed are the merciful, for they shall obtain
ll that misery experienced when
