in the Pit.
There were about one hundred and fifty
men in the cock pit yesterday when it
was announcea that the hghting would
commence. Most of these were about
middle aged, though there was a con
siderable sprinkling of younger men.
The representation from the countrv
was scarcely over twenty, and the vis
itors were even fewer. The main has
not been advertised as was that of last
year, and hence the slim attendance of,
sporting men from other towns. The
utmost good order prevailed, there be-
ngvery little drinking ; in fact there
was not a drunken man or boisterous
character on the grounds all day. not
withstanding there was a bar-room ad
joining. The pit is under a shed and
is paruy surrounueu i oy seats.
The time tor the hrst tight was nxed
at 11 o'clock a. m., but it was 12 before
the parties stepped into the ring with
their cocks in hand. K. C. Franklin, ot
Columbia, was the pitter for Walker &
Co. and S. B. Holt pitted for Holt & Co.
The judges took their places just out
side the ring, and as the cocks were
brought out they compared them with
the description on paper in their hands
to satisry themselves that there had
been no change in the matching.
First Fight North Carolina (Holt &
Co.,) showed a red spangled. Holt's own
breed, weight 4.15; South Carolina
(Walker & Co..) a light gray, breed un
certain, weight 4.15. The cocks did not
fly at each other when first delivered,
but walked over the pit and finally wrent
at each other simultaneously; fought
hard at first but had a lone rest towards
the last. Both held up well. South
Carolina killed by a wound in the neck ;
time 35 minutes.
Second Fig Id. North Carolina, black
gray, Sim Jenkins stock, weight 5.3;
South Carolina, dark gray Stone and
War Horse, weight 5.1. Both flew at
each other and fought rapidly. Black
ray received a cut and nagged on the
fth delivery, and on the sixth ran ;
Third Fight North Carolina, silver
gray, Sim Jenkins, 5.3; South Carolina,
dark gray. Black" Hawrk, 5.1. Went to
gether like a flash, silver gray being a
high flyer. The fight was- pretty even
for several deliveries and both held up
well under a hard nght. The dark gray
finally lost his vigor and received a stab
in the neck : carried out of pit appar
ently dying. The silver gray was un
hurt; time 7.50.
Fourth Fight North Carolina, gin
ger red Red Horse, 5.2 ; South Carolina,
ginger red Shawl Neck, 5.2. Shawl
neck fought vigorously from the jump
and seemed to have the advantage for
the first five deliveries but received
several severe cuts and lost an eye;
flagged for awhile but revived and held
up pretty well until struck in the head.
The red horse kept up well and was fresh
at the last but lost an eye. There were
ten deliveries and a long rest both
chickens being blind in one eye and
having the blind sides turned towards
each other ; time 23.20.
Fifth Fight North Carolina, silver
gray Sim Jenkins, 5.4 ; South Carolina,
red bhawl Neck, 5.4. The Shawl JNeck
flew at his antagonist at the start, and
alter some vigorous hghting, got the
advantage which he held throughout.
The gray flagged early and was down
two-thirds of the time, but continued to
strike as long as he was able. The
shawl neck was in good condition at
the close, when the pitter of the gray
gave up the fight.
isixti Hight. JNorth Carolina, black
gray him Jenkins, 5.o; bouth Carolina,
lied Tarter, 5.5. Sharp fighting from
the jump by both. The gray received
three cuts about the neck and head on
three several deliveries, and on the
third ran out of the pit, but died before
the gaffs were taken off. The Red Tar
ter received little, if any injurv. Time,
Seventh Fight. North Carolina, dark
Red Quill, 5.5: South Carolina, brass
back gray ; Stone and War Horse, 5.6.
Flew at each other savagely and fought
vigorously and with -equal advantage
until the second delivery when the
gray was wounded in the back, and
when taken up was bleeding at the
mouth ; he died on the third delivery,
The best fight of the day. Time, 1.40.
Eighth Fight North Carolina, blue
gray, Sim Jenkins, 5.8 ; South Carolina,
gray domimque, breed uncertain, 5.8.
This was a long and bloody fight neith
er gaining the advantage and both be
ing literally cut to pieces. The domi
nique flagged first, and failing to make
a stroke was, according to the rules, af
ter five deliveries, counted out ; time 39.
The result of the dav s fight was.
North Carolina. 5; South Carolina, 3.
North Carolina having won the first
fight, day before yesterday, the second
stands 6 to 3.
The betting was pretty lively, but no
very large bets were made. The North
Carolina backers are very jubilant.
They only have to win four fights to
day to win the main.
The fighting begins this morning at
11 o'clock, and the main will be closed
to-day, there being yet nine fights to be

"Hack fights" were going on at the
cock pit till a late hour last night.
The severest fighting of the main will
be that to-day. Both sides will put their
very best birds in.
In the fifth of to-day's battles will
appear, according to the sworn declara
tions of Uncle Ned Glavin, the "faer-faemed-fleary
eye" one of North Caro
lina's most boasted strains.

Mr.B. Chambers, the livery man of
this city, was a citizen of New Zealand
sixteen years ago, and was the first man
in the town of that province where he
resided, to run a dray. The first man in
that town who gave him any work in
the line of draying was Mr. J. C. Bates.
Afterwards Mr. Chambers left New
Zealand and lately settled in Char
lotte. In the meantime Mr. Bates had
settled in the adjoining countv of Union,
and yesterday the two met "again and
Mr. Bates paid Mr. Chambers a dray fee.
They were glad enough to see each

another meeting is called for this after

The first term of Iredell Superior

sion this week. It passed, among oth
ers, on five jail cases which came with

A young man from the northern part
of the county has been arrested and
lodged in jail on the charge of rape.
Application for bail, on a writ of ha

Quite a quantity of stock in the States
ville Air Line Railroad, proposed to be
run from Statesville to Mount Airy, has
been subscribed for since the opening
of the books. The Atlanta & Charlotte
Air Line Railroad, will probably be
asked to aid in this undertaking on the
ground of its giving it a through and
short connection to the Virginia line.
The members of the United States
coast survey, who have recently had
their headquarters in Statesville for the
purpose of ascertaining accurately the
latitude and longitude of this town,
with reference to certain mountain
peaks, have concluded their labors and
left for Atlanta.
Statesville must be at least five de-
f;rees colder on an average than Char
otte. There was excellent skating on
Davis' pond, near Statesville, four or
five days after all the ice had disappear
ed from the ponds around Charlotte.
I nd ucenienta to Returning Em ig rants .
It has already been mentioned that a
convention of railroad ticket agents has
recently been held in Texas for the pur
pose of adopting popular rates by which
persons who have moved to that State
from the South and Southeast, and be
come dissatisfied, may return to their
old homes at small cost Maj. W. J.
Houston, general ticket agent of the
Atlanta and Charlotte Air-Line Rail
road, was one of the members of this
convention, and of its proceedings he
spoke the other day to a reporter of the
Atlanta Post, as follows :
Rep. Yon have failed then to accom
plish the object of' your visit ?
Maj. H.Notr at 11. I have perfected
an arrangement for the transportation
of immigrants who are to beconie ac
tual settlers in the Southeast at rates
less than the average rates given to
Rep. Is there any certainty about
this and when will it go into effect?
Maj. H. It is a certainty as all the
railroads and steamboat lines between
two important points in Texas have
given full authority to carry the same
into lull effect, and it only requires time
to arrange the preliminaries.
Rep. Do you expect luany to avail
themselves of this arrangement?
Maj. II. The saason will be rather
too far advanced to do much until the
coming crop is made. After that I ex-
Eect them to come in large numbers,
owever, during this winter and next
spring, they will come in small detach
ments. Rep. Has such an arrangement ever
been made before ?
Maj. H. No, sir. This is the first
