1 The Asheville journal commenting
on Jarvis' speech at Rutherford:
! He never raised a breeze. If you
had parsed through the county next
day, you would not! have, known there
had been a speaking. Times have
changed.' Four years ago, when Zeb.
Vance came to or ' village to speak he
was : attended by brass bands and an
immense, retinue, of citizens. Every
body ; was , enthused. Even children
and blocHders shouted "Rah Tfor Zeb !"
(You remember he promised' to repeal
the revenue laws, and annihilate the
'red-legged; grasshopper.") Gov. Jar
vis', only attendant j was a man from
Charlotte, Mr. Wm.' Shipp.- Wc felt
for him, but bis f-iends did their best! i

"The Stite8ville American t-.kes to

. . Mr.: Hale has long commanded the
confidence and respect of the peoplo of
North Carolina, but what are tney to
think bf him, now when he deliberately
perverts facts to. blacken, the, character
of a political opponent. The only ex
cuse that can be made for him is that
his faculties have been impaired by
age and dm brain crazed by political
zeal; for. no one is williug to attribute
willfullness to the errors of such a man.
