a'soeviduDt that York comc3 out sec

Here is a report of the fpeaking at

IJcha character as to cheer every

J?wt. His speech, vigorous and lu
rf produced a happy effect and drew
ot:nual applause. He spoke half an
sow and I regard his speech as one of

Last Nigut's Ball.
From some of those who were pres
ent we learn that the ball last night at
Stokley's, at Wrightsville, was a com
plete success. There was a large at
tendance of ladies and gentlemen, the
music was good, tho best of order was
maintained and the dancing was kept
up until a late hour. The party "was
pleasant in every way and the enjoy
ment was universal.

From an esteemed correspondent we
have received an account of the Mas
querade Ball at Hotel Brunswick,
Smithyille, which was tendered Mr;
David II. Karesey's New York Bandon
Wednesday evening last. The .band
has discoursed most excellent music
during the season and their efforts have
been highly appreciated by thergood
people of Siniihville. The ball came off
in the commodious pavilion connected
with the hotel, and was a deserving
compliment to the young men compos
ing this band, who have discoursed
some excellent music during the season
to guests of the hotel and citizens of
SmiUiville. The event was one that
will long be remembered by the happjf
participants. It was, without doubt,
the-largest party of ladies and gentle-
men Jever assembled in the payilion to
enjoy terpsichorean pleasures. The
manager. Mr J; D. Sublett, has placed
within hi3 crown another jewel, which
will outshine all those previously won
by his cordial and modest manner of
bestowing smiles and favors upon his
guests. The ladies upon this occasion
seemed to excel all previous effort as
regards toilets. It is doubtful if even
more costly or handsome dresses ever
graced the hall; but, with all this, the
smiling, animate'd faces of the wearers
eclipsed them all. Too much praise
cannot be bestowed upon the committee
for the efforts put forth by each to ad
vance the pleasure of the assemblage
About 11 o'clock an intermission was
giyon to allow all who wished to par
take ot refreshments. Soon after the
crowd agjam put in their appearance on
the dancing floor, and continued there
until a late hour. As the time for
going home drew near, many were the
compliments passed on the manage
ment and the excellent music of the
New York band. Many of the ladies
and gentlemen assumed different
characters and appeared in costumes
appropriate to their respective roles
and this feature of the occasion added
very much to its delights.
The band will leave to-day ior . New
York and will take with them the best
wishes of the good people of Smithville
who-will miss them when they are
It has been noticed recently that
counterfeit ten-cent pieces are getting
quite numerous. They are clumsily
made, and are brighter and of lighter
weight than the original coin. They
feel soft to the touch and look as glossy
as quicksilver. The "metal is so soft
that the finger-nail will almost make an
indentation. ,They bear the date 1875.
Counterfeit half and quarter dollars are
also in circulation, but bad-ten-cent
pieces arc the most numerous.
A white man, whose name we sup
press, was brought before the Mayor
this morning on the charge of disorder
ly conduct, and a fine of $5 was im
posed for the offense.
Hester Bradley. Mary Bradley and
Ellen Smith, three pestiferous colored
damsels who have made the vicinity of
the Postoffice their nightly rendezvous
until they have become known as the
"Postoffice Gang,1' were arrested and
locked up last night for disorderly con
duct. They were brought before the
Mayor this morning and were fined $5
each for their conduct, in default of
which they were sent below for 30 days.
That Puzzle Ajraln.
We have received several alleged
solutions of the labyrinth puzzle, some
from the city and some from the
country, and yet not one of tbem is
correct. The nearest as it seems to us
is from a subscriber at Bladen boro who
is right in all except the start. He goes
from cell 1 to 2 and then from 2 to 3.
diagonally, right thouzh the corner of
the wall. As he entered 2 by a door
so must he get out in that manner,
eitnef directly into 1, 3 or 8. We have
about come to the conclusion that the I
puzzle is insolvable. Bat those who
are still working on it must remember
that the cells must beentered through
the doors, that these doors, presumably
in the middle of lbs partition walls, are
the only means of inrc3 and crccs
and. no c:Il cu:t 1 3 entered tirics.
The Hewlett faction of the Republi
canparty ot New Hanover county met
in Convention at the Court Hquse at
noon to-day and organized by electing.
W. H." B. Branch Chairman, and
Harry Tnouias- Secretary. Several
speeches were made; F. H. Darby was
rec mi mended .for Representative to
Congressf; James A.'Lowery for County
Treasurer and a resolution was adopted
endorsing the entire Republican State
ticket. "During the proceedings there
was at4irn,e3 considerable cn fusion, as
nearly all those present had a speech
for the occasion, but as a whole the
convention passed off with no serious
disturbance. After endorsing the Slate
ticket th Convention adjourned sine
CONVENTION NUMBF.lt TWO.
Immediately after the adjournment
of the" above, mentioned Convention
the "People's" Convention was organ
ized by making Larry Moseley Chair
man. and somebody (we could not as
certain whom) Secretary, Then be
gan one of the wildest sceaes of con
fusion we have ever witnessed in a po
litical convention or anywhere else.
Fully twenty persons were talking and
shonting at thn same lime, all trying
to gain the attention of the chairman,
who was vigorously beating upon the
desk with a big stick as if marking
time to the horrid music with which
the room resounded. One had a set of
resolutions to offer, another had a mo"
tiou to make, a third (besides several
others) had a speech to make, and con
fusion worse confounded reigned su
preme. The 'chairman lost his head
and his temper, but he managed to
make himself heard by his voice and
the big stick.. John H. Whiteman
read a list of candidatel, but the
contusion was so great that
he succeeded only after re
peated efforts and then only so far as
to make a portion of the names on the
ticket audible. Some one offered a res
olution endorsing Mr. Blaine for Pres
ident, Mr. Logan for Vice President,
and "Honuble" Mr. Darby for Con
gress, but whether the resolution was
ever adopted or not we are entirely
unable to say, and we very much doubt
If any one else can . All hands seemed
to be working with zeal for tho success
ot the party, but all appeared to be
traveling upon different roads. Some
of. those present were quiet and orderly
and.if wecould form-a correct judgment
from appearances, they were heartily
tired and ashamed of the noTsy chaotis
proceedings ot about twenty of the
leading spirits who were making an
uproar compared to which Bedlam
would be a Paradise. When we left
the Convention was still in session, the
chairman was shouting and pounding
and the speakers were howling, all in a
different key and time, to the very top
of their voices.

That is a neat compliment the Char

judge on the bench of this State who
is held in greater esteem by the people
than Judge McKoy. As tho Home and
