The Fruit Crop in tne luterior.
We are sorry to learn that the fruit
crop in the interior of this State has been
entirely destroyed by the recent cold
weather. A private letter received in
this city from Pittsboro conveys': the in
formation that every thing of the kind in
that section has been ki led, even to the
strawberry vines which, in some in
stances, an endeavor had been made to
preserve from the cold by covering them
over. The loss of the fruit crop in
Chatham will be a very serious blow to
the peoplo of that county.
The Florida a Man or War.
In referring to Capt. John N. Maffitt
a .few das ago as the orator of the occa

alludsd to the steamer Florida as a Con

regularly commissioned man-of-war in
the Confederate navy, and her officers
and crew were regularly commissioned
and enlisted by the Navy Department .of
the Southern Confederacy. We intended
to have written Confederate cruiser when
we penned the notice, but by some inad
vertence on our part wrote privateer, in

We weie informed yesterday, by one of
the firm, that Messrs. Westbrook & Brc,
of Rocky Point, a few days ago 'made an.

tbe receipts ef which put those we quoted
Saturday eutirely in the shade. The latter
shipmaut cousisted of six barrels from
which they netted $67.50, or $11.25 per
barrel. This is a profitable crop to culti
vate when one dollar per barrel, net pro
ceeds, can be realized, but with such enor
mous profits as those quoted above we
are afraid that our Rocky Point friends
will begin to put on airs. Trusting, how
ever to their good looks and their genial
good nature.we will not anticipate the cold
shoulder at the present.'

The Market Question.
Very much interest has been manifes
ts I in this community of late in regard
to ths proposed removal of the Market
nouse from its present location ana we
have been led, threby, to examine tbe
various propositions in regard to the mat
ter which htve been submitted for tbe
action of the Cemmittee. There are too
less than four of these now in the hands of
Capt. Savage, the City Cle k, on which
the vpecial Cemmittee is to act. We
shall endeavor herewith to give some if e
of the prov sioos of each:
First we have the original proposition
submitted by Mr. John E. Lippitt, in
behalf ef the stock holders of his Company .
He proposes to remove the Market House
from its present site free of cost te the
city; to erect a handsome and commodious
building, 105x210 feet for use as a "Public
Market House" and to put up suitable
sheds at the river for fish and oyster
stal la . He agrees that the price ot tl e
stal s shall not exceed b, $8 and $12 50
per month, as per location; that the
Market shall be kept clean and that the
city may purchase any time after the lapse
of five years, at cost. He also
promises to build markets in
the First and Fifth Wards, under same
regulations, and te pay into the city
treasury $1,000 a year in lieu of all taxes
on the property. On tbe other hand the
authorities are not to authorize the erec
tion of any other markets but may allow
meat stores, and also stands for carts
in any pat t of thi city they may select.
The next proposition before ui is from
Messrs. Thomas Johnson, Hermaa Hiatze
and others, known as tbe "Wilmington
Market House Company." Tbey offer to
erect a Market House in the First Ward
on the site of that recently destroyed by
fire, also one at some point in tbe Fitth
Ward, both with accommodations for
hucksters and fish cart-; to build a belfry
on each for fire alarms; to endow tbe eld
Market House with waioscoatiog, lattice
work, Sec , and te divide into distinct
apartment, s and to arrange for the ac
commodation of fish carts at the lower
ead; to keep tbe Market Houses clean by
daily washings; to weigh all beef eattl 5
brought to the city for the usual fees; to
pay $1,009 per annum into the city
treasury; to surrender everything to the
city at the expiration of fifteen years; te
erect such other Market Houses as the
Mayor and Board ot Aldermen may from
time to t;me see fit te require
and to lease the stalls at public auction
every first of January, no bid less than
$12.50 per month to be considered. In
case of a failure of the Company te com
ply with the terms of agreement, every
tbirg to revert to the city.
Messrs. "S. H. Manning A Co. " sub
mit the following: To deed lot corner
Third and Princess, 50x198, te the city;
to build thereon a brick market house
with 27 stalls, each separate and distinct
from the other; stalls to be let at auction
on the first of January at not less than
$12.60 each per month, and collect all
market fees outside as well as within the
market. The city to pay $2,000 per an
num lor eight years; the old
market house to be taken down
an I material used in construction of
new market, free of expense to tbe ciy ;
to build markets in First and Fifth watds
with accommodations for hucksters and
fishermen; to clean each market dail; ,
and weigh all beef cattle. Tbe market
buildiugs to be all surrendered to the city
at the end of eight years in good condition
Fourth ly and lastly, a preposition from
Mr. F. W. Foster, who offers to well to
the city the vacant lot on the corner of
Third and Princess streets, as a site for a
market house, for $600, cash, or one, two
and three years, with interest at 8 per cent
lions tbe Wharves Yesterday.
All the foreign shipping in port yester
day had their colors at half-mast out of
reverence and veneration far the solem
nity of the day. This was also tbe case
at the Imperial German Consulate. This
is a custom that is practiced in christian
countries across the water, to we are in
formed, and one that some of the
representatives of those governments in
this country follow.
The steamship Benefactor was at half
mast with her colors also. But this, we are
informed, was out of respect tejthe mem
ory of tbe late Dr. Barkhardt. The
foreign shipping, together with tbe Im
perial German Oonauljdeaired also to be
considered as bearing tbe same respect to
the memory of ibis deceased gentleman
as well as respect for the day and occa
sion which was commemorated on y ester

Funeral or tbe Late or. BurkJhardt
The funeral obsequies of the lamented
Dr. Carl F, Burkardt took phuse yester
day afternoon from the corner of Ninth
and Chestnut streets to St. Paul's Evan
gelical Lutheran Church and tUence to

uakdale Cemetery. The members of
Stonewall Lodge No. 1. Germania Lodge
No. a and ef Section No. 221 Endow
ment Rank, Knights of Pythias, met at
Castle Hall en Third street, at 2 o'clock
p. m. and under cam n and ef Past Grand
Chancellor, H. C. Prempert, as Marshal,
marched to the residence of Mr. Geo. C.
McDougald where the deceased had re
sided up to the time of his death, and from
there acted as escort to the remains until
the grave had closed over all that was
mortal of their late friend and brother.
The services in the church were particu
larly impressive. Rev. Dr. Bernheim, the
officiating clergyman, after reading the
funeral office for tbe dead, indulged in
some very touching and appropriate re
marks relative to the sudden demise of
their departed brother. From the Church
the remains were borne to their last resting-place,
in the beautiful and quiet spot
of Oakdale followed by an immense
concourse of citizens in addition
to the different Lodges mentioned
above. At tbe grave, Mr. J no.
W. Gerdts, Chancellor Commander of
Germania Lodge, read the burial office for
the Knights of Pythias in German, and
with this the ceremonies closed. Then
the heavy, dull thud of the first spade
ful of dirt "announced that the last sad
rites were being performed and the famil
iar form which bad so recently moved
around among his many friends perform
ing acts of kindness here and there, was
now, alas, shut out forever from the gazr
of the world, so to rema& until that gra t
final day, when the last trump shall sour J
