So the Western Railroad matter has
finally been , settled. 'Vance roles a

Jarvis 'and Worth' vote "against Best,

is that both Jarris and Vance were
feed as attorneys, yon know, of course,
The fact is the people never believed
that the big row was going to amount to
very much, so far as the i-state was'con-j

But Andrews- got is Umg extended

the same, notwitbsUtfding.yance'a big
talk about, what he wss going to do for,

of the first order, and be cares nothing

He hopes by not agitating this subject
it will all soon pass over as still-born
matter. I have received a great many
complimentary letters for informing the
public of this abuse of office Some of
these letters have been from the most
intelligent of North Carolina's sons,
and from gentlemen filling the; most
responsible positions in the state. I
think a curse, sooner or later, will over
take any man who thinks he is so high
in life that public sentiment cannot
reach him. : His summit has been well

Deab Sib On seeing the account

oi nis attorney,; to uapt. Kaight and
other employees of the Railroad Com
pany, to take no notice of any.com-.
munic ttiop, cor answer ; any questions
that would in any way implicate the
Railroad Company. CapX Knight has
been very busy drilling Larkins and
his drivers, also Jacob Thompson and
Hankins. The latter has been so
thoroughly drilled, that he would hard
ly tell where the railroad shed was lo
xated. I have given this information
to you to use as ydti please, provided
my name is withheld? It is my opinion
that the railroad officials wish the
public kept in the dark as to tne facts
concerning this brutal treatment of a
passenger over this road.
