JLEGISIjATURE of north caro-
Wednesday,' January 15 1S73.
The Senate was called to order at
12 o'clock by Lieutenant Governor
Brogden. He said:
Senators : The, Constitution of
North , Carolina declares that the
Lieutenant Governor shall preside as
President of the Senate. Having

reonscientiously -believe to be right,

and indulgence to cover my errors.
My past experience has taught me
that it is almost impossible for the
presiding officer of a legislative body,
composed of course, of so many dif
ferent minds and opinions, to give
entire satisfaction . on all occasions.
But it will be my constant aim and
effort to act according to parliamen

As you were in session for about
one month before your late recesss,

condition of the State, and you may

The public institutions of the State
should, receive the careful attention
of the Legislature. The Institutions
for the Deaf and Dumbahd the Blind,
the Asylums for the Insane, and also
the Penitentiary, are all supported
by the tax-payers of the State, and it
is the duty of the Legislature to pro
perly in vestiga'.e the management of
these institutions, and to allow no
injustice or oppression, no favoritism
or partiality to be wrongfully prac

Let us faithfully attend to the ed
ucational interests and necessities of
the children of the State. Let us
provide necessary and proper means
for the cultivation of the intellect
and the improvement of the mind
and morals of the rising generation.
Our Constitution wisely provides "for
a general and uniform system of
Public Schools, wherein tuition shall
be free of charge to all the children
ot the btate, between the ages of six
and twenty-one years."
Our present free school law is deh-
cient, and needs emendation and im-
provement. I believe in the truism
that morality and intelligence are
the only sure basis of our govern
ment." A well educated and Christ
ian people are always prepared and
qualified to guard and protect their
rights and liberties
The main object of wise legislation,
should be to correct the errors of the
past, and to pass such laws for the
future as experience and the necessi-
ties oi tne times may point out to
be judicious, necessarv and proper
In all legislation reckless prodigal-
ltv and wasteful extravagance are m
iurious to the best interests of the
people, and should be avoided as
much as possible.
Economy forms one of the promi
nent virtues and duties ot a Republi
can Government. It does not on-
sist, however, in withholding from
faithful public service a just com pen
sation : neither does it consist in ac
cording with parsimonious hands in
providing for the public necessities
JBut it consists in closing every un
necessary drain on the public Treas-
ui y ; and Also, for. the same, purpose,
there is strenuously required a judi
cious application of the appropria
tions to their objects, and a vioorous
execution of the laws regarding them.

an era of good feeling which, has
dawned upon the . conntryv aud the

and National elections of 1872. It

Differences of opinion in relation
to the affairs of government may be
conducive in the end to the discovery
of truth, and a frank investigation of
matters of public importance ought
never to b discouraged. But I think
that well-meaning and sober-minded
men will agree that there has been
too much passion and too little rea
son ; .too much party and too little
regard for principle ; and that in ex
amining the acts of our public ser
vants, there has sometimes been a
fearful disregard of truth and justice.
Let us hope for more generosity and
charity nereaiter. Witn no vain re
grets for the past, let us look hope-
tully forward to the rewards of, the
future. Let us try to promote the
further development of our vast and
various resources, and improve the
credit of our State. Let us try to
keep step with the progressive spirit
of the times, and the onward march

other tribes, being m looks, bearing
and pride of dress, a manifestly su

ly and modest in dress: their hou
ses are clean and their cooking good.
Certain kinds of cloth are made bv
them. These people have fields of
corn, wneat and vegetauies, nocKs oi
sheep and goats, and they keep all
the domestic animals. They are
friendly to the whites, never fight
aggressively, but are stubborn in de

Lydia Thompson's Bale of Cotton.
Our readers are doubtless aware,
Miss Lydia Thompson, of the Eng
lish blondes, was presented with a
bale of cotton bv the citizens of Sa
vannah, GFeorgia, some time since.
'What will she do with it? has been
the frequently asked question, and
that question was decided in St. Louis
on the 4th inst.; when the famous
bale of cotton was sold by Cap t. Mc
Donough, Chief of Police, to whom
it had been presented by Miss ihomp-
son, tor the beneht ot the city poor.
The cotton was; put up at auction
and sold to Mayor Brown for $150,
who gave it back for the benefit of
St. Vincent de Paul's Society, when
it was again sold for $105. It was
again put up for the benefit of the
poor, sold for $100 Miss Thompson's
agent being the buyer, it was again
returned and sold for $75 lhe last
buyer had it put up for the benefit of
the Southern Orphan s Home, of
Kansas City, when it was sold for the
fifth time for $75, making a total of
$500 received for one bale of cotton,
that sum going to help the poor.
Remarkable Memories. Dr. Joh n-

of memory. When alluding to this
subject, bir William Hamilton ob
