MEMORIAL SERVICES IN
HONOR OF SENATOR
On Monday morning last, the
student body assembled in the
chapel to pay a final tribute to
the memory of one who for so
long has shed lustre upon North
Carolina and his alma mater,
, The exercises opened with a
selection from Wood, rendered by
the chapel choir, after which Dr.
Hume read appropriate passages
from the Bible, and offered up a
beautiful and fervent prayer. It
was fitting that those should speak
who had best known the deceased
statesman in life, hence there was
intense interest when Drs. Man
ning and Battle sketched the life
and experiences of their mutual
associate and friend. Rising first,
Dr. Manning described the early
progress and habits of the young
man, who in 1852 entered the Law
class at Chapel Hill. He stated
that his favorite books were the
Bible, Shakspeare and Scott's
Novels, and how after obtaining
his license this beardless youth in
'54 took his seat in the General
Assembly, and subsequently in '58
his seat in Congress. The Doctor
briefly, but vividly, gave the suc
cessive steps of the Congressman,
Captain, Colonel, War Governor
and Senator, touching here and
there upon the ever earnest and
sympathetic spirit of the man.
Vance was opposed to secession,
and made several strong union
speeches, but when war was inev
itable, when sides had to be taken,
when Federal cannon were boom
ing against Fort Sumpter, the
patriot left the platform, and
buckling on his sword enlisted as
a common private to defend his
home and native soil. Vance was
full of the milk of human kind
ness; he was the tenderest of men,
and it was this desire to help and
console his suffering fellowmen
that brought him greatest trouble.
In conclusion, the speaker pointed
out the secret of the Senator's suc
cess. He said it was application
to subjects in hand, coupled with
an unflinching integrity, and a
heart pulsing in common with the
Dr. Battle, who had known
Governor Vance from boyhood,
dwelt upon his student life, call
ing attention to his great powers
of concentration and familiarity
with standard authors. Vance
while in college stood among the
first in his class, and was looked
upon as a promising orator and
debater. He was witty, whole
souled, and very popular among
his mates, especially in the Dia
letic Society. When the war came
on he resigned his seat in Congress,
and entering the army fought
gallantly at Malvern Hill and on
other fields, until the North Caro-.
lina soldiers sent him home to the
Governor's chair. There his every
endeavor was for the betterment
of his countrymen. He bought
up rosin, cotton and other military
stores, issuing bonds upon the
same to secure supplies for the
needy soldiers. To these the
efforts of the best of Southern
Governors was due that comfort
which soldiers of many other
States did not enjoy. After the
war, when falsely accused and im-.
prisoned, a most stringent inves
tigation fully exonerated him, and
he returned to his place among
his people even more beloved.
Vance was no demagogue ; he knew
the popular heart and thought as
his fellows, "Fair in debate,
genial always," no man was his
equal. A loving son developed
into an affectionate husband and
loving father. After a few further
remarks regarding the religious
faith of the dead, the Doctor con
Dr. Winston paid a tribute to
that character and steady resolve,
which from limited means and
opportunities has ever developed
into a perfect manhood. When
the speaker sat down, the audience
sang that beautiful song, u One
sweetly solemn thought," and
then dispersed, feeling that a great
light amongst us had gone out
TJ. N. C.,6. OAK RIDGE, 1.
Saturday was a lovely day for a
game of base-ball, and a game of

"little Stuart" struck Charlie
Jones fairly out twice. The game
