Davidson Coliege, June 1 1. The
commencement is in full blast. This is
the opening day. One who has been
attending the annual commencements
for years could scarcely be made to be
lieve that it was in actual progress were
ne nos nere to see tne animated aoDear-
ance of the staid old village, the uncere
monious disturbance of the normal re
pose of the shaded grounds, and hear
the enlivening strains of martial music;
for such person has not known what it
was to have a commencement at
Davidson that was not attended with
the extremity of heat. ! The action of
the trustees in changing the time is
universally lauded. Tuesday s rain pun
ned tne atmospnere, and to-day s clouds
cut on tne piercing rays or a J une sun.
And vet we have nlentv of sunshine in
the bright faces of the crowd of young
ioik gathered in every part or tne village
on tne lawns, and in tne society nails.
The majority of the crowd present to
day are from a distance. The people of
tne neighborhood, who come in private
conveyances, rarely gather in large
numbers until commencement day pros
per to-morrow. The custom is to be
deplored as the first day's exercises are
of much greater interest to the average
visitor ; but a custom it is and will pro-
MEETINGS OF LITERARY SOCIETIES.
I have said that to-day is the opening
aay 01 tne commencement, and so it is.
But last night was an occasion of
scarcely less interest to the students
than the commencement itself, - This
was the annual meetings of the socie
ties in their respective halls. These
meetings are public only to the old and
honorary members. What transpires
there beyond the conferring of society
diplomas upon the members of the grad
uating class, and general speech-making
and a joyous reunion, is a secret.
WORK OF THE TRUSTEES.
The board of trustees, of which Rev.
L. McKinnon, of Concord, is president
successor of Rev. Jacob Doll have
been in session since Monday
morning, hearing the reports 01 thecoib
dition of the college and consulting for
its best interest. The reports show the
financial condition of the institution to
be thoroughly satisfactory never bet
ter and that the number of students
had increased during the past year from
80 to 100. It was not found necessary
to change or modify the policy of ad
ministration. A proposition was made
to reduce the rates of tuition so as to ac
commodate it to the present standard of
pnees, but this was laid over till the
next annual meeting. The board, how
ever, reorganized the relation of the in
stitution to the Church by allowing free
tuition to the sons of living and deceas
ed ministers or ail protestant denomi
nations. Heretofore this privilege has
only been extended to sons or members

in Charlotte yesterday afternoon at:8
o'clock and hung up at The Observjeb
ofiice during the shower. She is S3
years old, weighed, when she started,
115 lbs- and is talkative and animated.
She came in dressed in a black dress
ther worse for wear, bnt omampinfcfid hv
bows of faded blue ribbon up the front;
sne laid down on tne table a turn-up
straw hat with a blue ribbon band, a
'grip sack" in which she carries her
wardrobe, and a ring-streaked and
stripped stick about as large as your
thumb andtwo, feet i length. These
things the 'reporter AOted AtfWle Mrs.
Potts introduced herself and readjust
ed the bunch of flowers which she
wore on her bosom. As she took a seat
and mopped her brow with a handker
chief, remarking at the same time that
the evening was warm and she was
tired, the reporter further observed
that she had blue eyes, light hair and
would have light complexion exceDt for
the fact that she bas been badly tanned
by the sunshine and winds.
During her stav in the office it was
learned from bertb,at she had ..under
taken for 810,000 to walk from Phila
delphia to New Orleans (about 1,200
miles) and back in five months. She
left Philadelphia on tbe 12th of May (a
month ago to-day) having at that time
just completed a six days' walking
match, and had lost seven days be
tween that time and this. Her average
day's . walk is between 20 and 25 miles.
She-rests frequently and, doesn't gen
erally put in more than "five solid hours
a day. Her biggest day's work since
she started has been 28 miles. She came
here yesterday from Concord, having
left there at 8 a, m. and arrived here
yesterda'y 'afternoon -. afc-6. - Along the
road- she has been treated with
consideration. A Baltimore paper gave
her "a fearful send off but she didn t
mind it. She has had no money since
she left Washington, The people care
for her wants and she stops at the best
hotels and is charged nothing. She ex
pects to reach New Orleans between
the 15th and 20th of July. Half of her
time two months and a half will be
up on the 23d of July, and then she
proposes to ; start on her return trip,
wnen sne wm ao some waiKing
worth talking about, She proposes
to reach Philadelphia by October
12th, and go thence to New York to join
O'Leary in a walk at Gilmore's Garden,
he having already rented it for the purpose.
Mrs. Potts says she is a native of
Chowan county, N, C, Her husband
and children are dead. Twelve years
ago she went to Norfolk, Va., where
she lived for three years : thence she
went to New York where she has lived
ever since, doing whatever she could to
makealiying; at one time sewing, at
another pursing- and again keeping
shop. The walking mania broke out
and she fell a victim.
When she got up to leave the reporter
noticed that she numbered no umbrella
among her goods and chattels, and in

this man Byers he having implicated
with him in the store robberies last
week, another party, by the ,name of
Lee Potts, colored.
Potts was arrested Tuesday night,
shortly after the arrest of Byers. Fol
lowing these arrests the habitations of
both men were searched. In the room
where Byers sleeps when, he Is in the
city were found a number of cigar box
es, a quantity of snuff, a number of
pipes and other material v stolen from
the stores of Messrs. Alexander and
Glover; at Potts's house were found a
glass cutter; with which ' theA thieves
Had cut their way into the stores. At
Byers's place of staying were found a
great number of keys, of all sorts and
sizes, and a clue was gotten to. the fine
set of harness which was stolen not
long since from Col. Frank Coxe.
A trial of the cases was had yester
day morning before the mayor. A
quantity of testimony Was brought out
and the guilt of both1 prisoners was
fully established. Byers was identified
as the party who had stayed all night at
Harris s house in Concord and stolen
his watch and money, and the articles
found in the possession of the two men,
taken in connection with their own
partial confessions, furnished all the
evidence that was -needed to fasten the
store robberies of last week upon them.
Bail was required Of Byers in $300 in
each of the two cases in which he was
implicated, and a bond of $300 was re
quired of Potts for his appearance at
the next term of court to answer the
charge of complicity in the store rob
bery, Neither was able to furnish the
security and both are held for trial,
Eight or ten years ago this same man
Byers, then a servant in the family of
Col. R. M. Oates, stole an ingeniously
contrived music box and was after
wards taken under arrest on Capt.
Ligon's train on the Richmond & Dan
