Ob Saturday morning about o'clook, on the 16th of June, reached Washiagtoo City, en route for Chicago, to witncBS Ae proceed, ingt of Ae Repnbliean National Con* Teatioa, which oonveoed on Ae 19th. The NorA Carolina delegation wai provided for by that good man, Hon. W. P. Canady, and auigned A the “BruAl" ID theseooud icottoD of the excursion trains that were leaving WashingAn on Aat day. This a train of eight Pullman sleepers and five sections about the same also left WashingAD that day Our ticket entitled ns A thcce meals each way and a sIoepAg birA. Wc hid a car-load of North Carolinians. They were all good-looking, clorcr gcDtIomen Wc loft WashingAn 10: in Ac morning—hence an all-day ride, with a full view of monniains and brms of PcaDsylvania. Wc Aok Ae PcnnsylTBoia rouA, which took ns through Baltimore, Harrisbt^, Pilubnrg, AlAona, Fort Wayne, and other pretty WesAm cities. The scenery along thin rouA was perfectly grand. From Washing- Ad to and beyond Baltimore it somewhat dusty, but as we crossed tbti line botwcon Maryland and Pcuo- lylvania wc root rain in gentle, re freshing .Aowers, tliul cooled the at mosphere and made riding pleasant. followed thu graceful curves of the .Susquehanna river, along the foot of the Allogliany, the scenery was superbly picturesque and magnifi cently grand. The graceful slopes of the beautiful towering bills, the mighty roawiivc rocks, ibo frigbAning ravines, thick forests and rippling streams, fields green with grain and grass, dotted here and there with herds of cattle aud aheep, comforAble farm bouses, busy men and women kept us admiringly dcligbAd, gastug upon the wonderful works of nature and indnstry, and ingenuity of This is a grand codbtry. The farms c well cultivated. Wheat, clover, eom and oats Mem to be the priucipal prodneU, aside from garden vegcA- blcs. This ia also a great iron Ay. A.S night came upon us furnaces Id be seen blazing in every direc- ). .Sometimes it looked like hundred great lamps in arojDv Natural gas is burnt in this country also.— Many of Ac cities we passed on Sat urday night displayed great blaiiog lights, some of them three or four feet. It makes a powerful and bcaU' tiful light. AfAr enjoying many oAers besides the sceneries nicntioned, wc slept soundly, and waked early in the morning to find ourself well up KOnCB TO BUBSCBIBER8.

Here wc be gan A notice Ao well prepared coun ty roads and Aat in every Awn and city, Ac school-house and (he church were the bem and most prominent buildings A be Mcn. About midday wc cnAred Ae prairie land. There were clusArs of trees herd*and there, but no bill nor llcy nor stream. Miles and miles of level plains were before us ; farm bouses could be seen five and ten miles distant and cattle looked like lUiall bogs in Ac distance. Early ii Ac afternoon wc came in sight of Ae great Lake Michigan, and Ac porter yelled : "Chicago in a few tuinuAs. But it Aok us nearly a half hour A reach Ac depot afAr wc got io sight. Chicago is a great city. It is I •iiotropolis of the West. It bos population of 809,000. It has about 16,000 colored people. The police force is 1,300 mcn. The mayor gets $10,000 a year. There are many magnifioeot baiidingi here, amoog Aem it the U. B. PoaAfieo, Ae Court iloBae, Ae Board of Trade aid Ae ooBveDtion aBdiAriBtn. Haay of Ae atorei are five asd six alsriaa high. Seme of Ae buildiuga are eleven stories bigb. The slreete are level and straight and r^olar. Cable ears are run on Ae streeta ta wall as borne «in. To a SonAerner it looks atrugo A see 8 or 4 earn togeAer daAing down Aa middle of • atnet loaded wiA pwpie and no engine or hone pnlllag it. They ran (nat. too, any at Ae rata af tan milaa na hoar. A KerA GmwUm Mend "look yonder at Aom oan rwftdng away.” We visiled SouA Park, Ltnerin Park, Ae great etoek yard or slangh tar pen and took a rida under Chieng* river in a tnunel in wbioh nre 1 Aonsnbd lighted lamps. We took 1 ride out on Lake Hiebigan about five miles, all of which we enjoyed much. In Linooln Park is a large statue of Preaident Lincoln. In Als park also is a Eoological garden, which is said A be second A n( the conuAy. Here may be seen elephants, tigers, bears, bn&los, elks, deer, beavers, seals, prairie dogs, wolves and many other animals and birds. It is a lovely park of about four hundred acres and ia free A all at all times. The slanghAr pen is Ae grandest thing A be seen in Ais great city It employs 6,000 mcn, besides women and children. It oovora sovcral hundrod aem and is laid squares ank the squares divided iuA pens. In these pens may bo seen tbonsacds of Ae finest and fattest and biggest beef oattle in Ao oounAy. ThousaudB of sheep and hogi huudreds of calves ore here also. Hero we witnewed Ac' biggest ‘‘bog-killiug” of our life. It >al)y intereatiug to see it. hundred bogs may be seen walking Ac pen and in less Aan an hour amu hogs may be seen ilrcsacJ and being prepared for sbipment. bog is fsKAned by one foot, reised 1 and goes slipping and sliding tike rope walker underneath the rope, goes from one man A another, each docs bis part to it until it is ready for tbe last knives to be quartered up. The Convention auditorium boldi about 10,000 people. It wi.'i well filled every session. It is a magnifi- cent bnilding. The chairman can be scon from all parts of Ac ball. It wap finely decoiaAd with flags and bunt ing and pictures and lights. Over tbe presiding officer was a beautiful shield which when lighAd showed the tbirty-aix stars iu blue ground and Ao sAipcs of red and whiA, emblematic of the American flag. Tbe auditorium was vcntilaAd by sAaiii famo. The convention was good naturod and well behaved. One hnndred ^jpolicomen assisAd Ao officers. Wo will say no more of it just now. It gave us the ticket that- will win. Wc left Chicago 11.30 on Monday igbt tbe 25A. Though we meant I remain in WaabingAn and had secured a situation, wc w eager A come back A Ac Old North Saa. We reached home Thursday aud though we left enAusissttc for Bberman, wc return just as earnest for Harrison and Morton. Not alone because Ac party DOmioaAd them, but beoauM it is a good ticket. Because Acy arc good vod ] ■? nion. Mcd whom Ao enemy can ss) iiothing agajpst. Then afAr a happy return from a pleasant trip, wc say hurrah for Harrison and Morton and NorA Carolina. ohaaga Ks pulley Ae Ni wants A b« infarmed iu time A get » harmony with Ae party, but if Ae triekatafi make iMr trade and Aen expeut A take Ais paper and Aa party over A a few demoenti for a few dollan, they will get 1^ aa in Ae past. In Ac multitude of coausel Aere I* wisdom. Io union is strengA. Don't keep your secreA Ao close breAren, or yon. Cooper and your whole erew may go down A shame and defeat. What betAr weapon do we want to fight with than Cooper’s record as sheriff and the former position of Ae moo who are now try ing A palm him off 00 Ac eolored republicans. Brother repufa^ans, let ni all nu- dontand each other before wc go Ao ftr in this fight. Fair play—an honest deal. lUBE IT DOWN. liost Saturday Ao Daily Chronicle of Ais eitj, said Aat Mr. Ilatrnon voAd against the Blair bill while in Ae SeoRA.

Wc are glad A see Aat there u at least one wriAr on that paper who sometimes repents of a Mark it down, a democratic paper corrects a false report against a repub' lioau cindidaA. It may be seen from Ais also, that democratic editors are not careful in gathering their news, but have too strong an inelinalinn tc injure republicans. ^ Our candidate and next prcsid^l all right on Ac educational question ns on all others.
