But bears some token to the distant sea -
Some silent blossom on its bosom riding
From fair pases wrapped in mystery.

Some sweet remembrance of a past unclouded.

HOKE C. SECREST.
How He Look and Acts In Marion Jail. '
Blue Ridge Blade. -It
was our duty to attend MeDowell
Court this week, and the opportunity
was improved r visit becrest, the wife
and child murderer, who will be re
sentenced to be hung at the present
term of ' court, or granted a new trial,
accordingly as the Supreme Court shall
elect. We first met Secrest on the
Western North Carolina Railroad train.
which brought him to Burke for trial
before the magistrate's court in icard
township, the scene of his murderous
activity ie was men cool ana self-
Dossessed. Dushing his way through the
crowd at lcard to view the fragments
of bones and hairs, which had once be
longed to his wire and her child, and
which were then on the ground for the
justice's inspection. This dare-devil
ook and spirit was maintained unsha
ken; throughout a .long . imprisonment
and the tedious, acquisitive, torturous
trial, which resulted irr a. erdict of
guilty for him and the pronouncing of
the death sentence. Now all that is
changed. To recklessness has succeed
ed remorse. Instead of the laughing,
wicked blue eye, one gazes into the
wrinkled depths of leaden melancholy
dullness, from which a constant stream
of tears flow freely. If there is any
doubt as to the certainty of the pun
ishment, which swift, sure-footed con
science mnicts on its enemy, let mm
visit Secrest and be convinced. A
stouter-nerved fellow by nature cannot
be conceived; yet, he is hopelessly
stricken by an inner-wielded cudgel,
and there is neither wall to flee to, nor
resistance to be' made. This "warm
hearted, passionate peopled world " has
for him lost all attraction, and there is
no outward sign at least, that he has
found the road which leads 44 into that
still country, where the hail-storms and
hre-showers do not reach, and the heaviest-laden
wayfarer at length lays down
his load." He does not talk at all, not
even to his aged lather, in company
with whom we visited him, and who
has stood to his son through his late but
ong report or evil, as none out parent
will stand. Moody and silent, mechan
ically tying and untying his shoe-strings,
he listens to what is said to him with
out looking up. Three negroes and a
white man were with him in the cage,
when we entered. The white man
seemed especially fond of him, repeat
edly stroking his hair, as the more dis
tinguished criminal gave way to tears.
New Laws and Changed taws.
On March 4, 1879, it was enacted that
mortgages of incorporate compa
nies upon their .property or earn
ings, whether in bonds or otherwise,
hereafter issued, shall not have power
to exempt the property or earnings of
such incorporation from execution for
the satisfaction of any -judgment ob
tained in courts of this State against
such incorporation for labor performed
for, nor material furnished such incor
poration, nor for torts committed by
such incorporation, its agents or em
ployees, whereby any person is killed
or any person or property injured, any
clause or clauses' tn- such mortgage to
the contrary notwithstanding.
It being alleged that public confidence
has been much abused by the un worthi
ness of financial officers of benevolent
and religious institutions, it was made
law on March 4, 1879, that any treasu
rer or other financial officer of any be
nevolent or religious institution who
shall apply - any of the ; moneys coming
into his hands as such to his own pri
vate use, or who shall lend any of such
moneys to any ptner person witnout
the consent of such benevolent or reli
gious institutions, and who shall fail to
account for such money when applied
for, shall be deemed guilty of a misde
meanor, and on conviction shall be
fined or imprisoned, or both, at the dis
cretion of the court. '
Some change wtwmade-by a law rati
fied March 5, 1879, in the matter of sher
iffs bonds. The. bond lor collection,
&c, of county, poor, school and special
taxes is to be double the amount of
