of the meridian by a system of triangles
extending from the northernmost of

At a nservative meeting held ia
Hackney, Sir Stafford Northcote se-

offensive language toward Austria:
Gladstone, in a recent speech, said the
Emperor bad-called -him a pestilent
fellow. The meeting was very uproar-
ious, owing to the presence of a number
of Liberals. Sir ; Stafford Noithcote
was obliged to bring his speech to a
close on account of the disturbance.

TUK BEST BILL PASSED !
The Best bill authorizing the sale of I
the Western North Carolina Railroad
passed both branches of the
Assembly on Friday. The Totein
SenaVe stSod 30 to 11, and iu the H
89 to 21. It.will be seen that most of
the western Republicans voted for the
bill. Most, if not ail, the amendments
were vj)ted down, and Best is master of
the situation. Best, means John W.
Garrett, President of the Baltimore &
Ohio Railroad, which now controls a
line fromj Baltimore to Danville via.
Lynchburg, and has a charter from
Danville to Statesville, and thus wilL
control the great trunk through the
mountains in the interest of Baltimore.
Good bye ! North Carolina f Welcome

; From the New Orleans Times, Feb.23. ' ;
We have recently seen, or rather
here at home, another striking indica-
tidn e.i the changed relation of tho south
and of southern statesmen and think-
fera toward r tho nation. In the nohlr.
and classic, oratien ot the Hon.Thomas
J. Semmes, pronounced at the unveil ¬
ing of the Washington Artillery moa-
umenton the 22J, there several remark
able anjd significant passages pertinent
to the present discussbn. After sketch-,
iog, with a-'fewj masterly strokes, the
historical course which' culminated in
the civil war, he proceeded to say that
interests. Ever since the cessation of
hostilities the centiipetal forces of the
political v system have been operating
with extraordinary energy. Day by
day the states have declined in import!
ance and power. State pride and state

of stateship All this plainly
tells us that the cause for which the
heroic dead 'sacrificed their lives is lost
indeed." The orator proceeded to say I
that the wounds of the war have1 been
healed, but the ideas evolved by the war
have since controlled and directed the
development of the nation. "Can any .
one expect to stem the current of ideas
of which the new naliou is the evolu-.
tion?" Reaction is nt to be expected.
Theiefore we look , to the future "not
for the vindication of political doctrines
which the logic of events has demon
strated to be speculative theories, but
for the physical, intellectual ana social
development) of t' b southern land,
