the lines of railway other! than those

it that in no event will The Observer
institute any change which will in the
slightest degree cripple its usefulness as

FROM LIXCOLNTOS TO HICKORY.
It is known that there is an applica
tion before the present General Assem
bly for -a.chateif6r a railroad to'ex
tend from Lincolnton to Hickory, there
to tap the Western Norii) Carolina Rail
road and pour its freight into the lap of
the Carolina Central. The; Salisbury
Watchman opposes Ciej pjoecji on the
ground that it will leave the Western
road, from Salisbury to Hickory practi
cally useless," thus destroying a TStMe '
enterprise in which large sums of mon
ey are invested. It is a matter of fact
that this proposed branch" will greatly
cripple the Western road by; diverting
its freight at Hickorv. and we should

1876, Mrs. Col. Pelton mentioned in ray

the day; ! 'I did rtidt' knowtie' had gine-'

to PhiladelDhia. I believe. Later in
i helayl vvra called on by Mr. Cooper;
who was on his way aown town, anu
was told by him that he had received
an offer from some parties offering to
obtain for money the vote of South
Carolina. I said 1 would authorize no
such transaction nor spend money for
any such purposes. The whole conver
sation occupied only a j few moments.

With regard to Florida, I never saw one
of the telegrams, either in cipher or

informed, that any negotiations were
going on in regard to illegally obtaining
the certificates of the returning board.
"Mr. Marble told me in a casual kind
of way about the corruption of the re-
turning board of Florida. I never saw
any one of those dispatches relating to
Florida, either in cipher or translation.
In regard to the Oregon dispatches I
did not knpw. they came in cipher until
after the meeting of the committee to
investigate them? i:"Some- of the dis
patches were addressed to my residence,
15 Gramercy Park. I do nbt know
that any of those dispatches -were, ever
delivered there. CoL Pelton's habits
of mind and mine are very different A
day or two after the election Gen.
Grant wrote a letter recommending

selection of those committees. I never
heard from them but once and that was
in a communication signed by Mr. Ot

all that time and did not undertake to
correct the idea that they "were my per
sonal agents That idea rias no. founda

party. None of them, so far as I know,
went to these States authorized to do
anything that gentleman might not do.
From the 7th November, 1876, to De

circumstances did I enter in to .-any com
