KING'S HIGII SCHOOL.
Report of tbe Commencement Exer
cises Iast Week.
Correspondence of The Observer. .
What were life without its seasons of
recreation and enjoyment? without an
occasional change from the very-day
treadmill of stern realities we have to
encounter in a world of toil and strife t
Such a season has just thrown its light
across the threshold of this community
in the commencement exercises of the
King's Mountain High School. The an
nual visitation of this event has become
to be a gala day in our midst, not only
to the student, who perhaps has been
counting the days when the session
would end, in anticipation of his or her
return to the loved ones at home, but
even the aged matron and the grey
bearded farmer convert it into a day of
recreation. It is a day we prepare for
here. By a little earnest effort before
hand, the crop is pronounced to be in
condition to justify laying aside the im
plements of toil ; the stores are closed,
that clerks and proprietors may alike
participate in the occasion ; the doctor
looks uneasy, lest some urgent call
should demand his presence elsewhere,
and thus all classes and ages join in de
voting one day to the interest they feel
The exercises were introduced by a
concert on Friday night, the 19th of
June, under the management of the
musical instructress, Miss Katie Pat
ton, of South Carolina. With no desire
to natter, I can but award great praise
to this accomplished lady in her man
agement of the entertainment. It was
what might be termed a starlight con
cert, aided by lesser lights of man's con
struction in the shape of lamps and
wax candles. A large platform had
been erected in front of the academy
building, which was carpeted and a por
tion of it enclosed with curtains, in
which enclosure were enacted the tab
leaux scenes, which were splendid, and
among the most admired I will men
tion " The Divorce of Josephine," " The
Wreath of Beauty," and " The Baptism
of Pocahontas." The instrument upon
which the young ladies of the school
performed occupied a prominent posi
tion upon the platform, and the exer
cises in this respect certainly indicated
tutelage by a skilful hand. As I listen
ed the thought of the poet possessed me,
that music hath charms to soothe the
savage breast" disowning, however, to
being a savage myself. MissPatton has
a fine voice, and when she led her pupils
to the front of the platform, nearly all
of them dressed in white, and mingled
their voices in singing the anthem.
" Great is the Lord," my thoughts went
upward, and in imagination could see
the angels upon the battlements of
Heaven, repeating the same chorus for
the hearing of a sinful world. The con
cert closed with a scene of representa
tion of wax figures, under the control
of Mis Rebecca Bayer, alias Mrs. Jar
ley, which exceedingly amused the au
dience. I would not omit mentioning
one of the concert pieces, " Mortgaging
the Farmland while the whole selec
tion was fine, this piece ierhaps caused
more merriment than any other. The
head of the family was represented by
Prof. R. S. Collins, of penmanship noto
riety, and the old gentleman (for old he
looked to be) seemed greatly distressed
at the idea of having to mortgage his
farm to satisfy the extravagancies of
the daughters, and so plaintively did he
pour forth this fact into theirs of his
assumed better half, that a feeling of
sympathy was aroused in our hearts for
the aged couple.
Saturday, June 21st, was commence
ment day, and at an early hour our
streets were thronged with visitors
from afar and near. At 8 o'clock
the cadets of the school, under
the command of their principal,
Capt W. T. R. Bell, formed into ranks
ana marched to the suburbs of the vil
lage to escort in the Cleaveland Guards
from Shelby When these two military
bodies formed together and marched to ,
the martial strain of the Dallas brass
band, in their yet unsoiled uniforms,
the days of 1861 were recalled, when
war was in it3 infancy, and untried pa
triotism the occupant of every Southern
breast The exercises of the day were
opened by a trial drill in the manual of
arms by six of the best drilled cadets of
the school, consisting of the following
young gentlemen: W. W. Boyce, W.
D. Montgomery, W. A. Thomason, L. 11.
AVeeks, of South Carolina; J.Xee Love,
C. Q. Petty, Jr., of North Carolina!
This was a very interesting feature
in tne days exercises. The test for
championship was to be determined in
this way : The six were brought to the
front of the stage and placed under
command of Lieut. O. G. Falls, whose
duty it became to conduct the drill.
When a . false command was given
(which was done purposely to mislead)
any one of the contesting six who obey
ed or attempted to obey the said com
mand was to leave the contest, as also
when a proper command was given any
failing to execute it properly was to,
step aside. When the contestants were
reduced to two, viz : W. W. Bovce and
C. Q. Petty, the interest became quit
exciting, not from preference, hut Jjotbr
had displayed such skill in the manual
of arms, an anxiety naturally pervaded
the audience to know who would be the
victor. After a contest of considerable
time Boyce failed in one command and
victory crowned Petty's laurels amidst
the cheers of the crowd. The same
cheers would have accompanied victory
w wo unuci. xu aiiuw wits uiseipnne or.
the well-drilled, soldier, amidst the
cheers and congratulations at the ter
mination of the contest, Lieut. Falls
thinking it perhaps unnecessary to give
any further commands, Petty knowing
the duty of the true soldier, still re
mained with his gun in position to fire
his face wearing the smile of victory
this being the position the last com
mand had placed him in. He was the
mcture of the well-drilled soldier in
deed. The next .on. the programme came the
orations by a number of the young gen
tlemen of the school. These were well
deliverecUhowing an acquaintance with
history and depth of thought
The hour appointed for the Rev. W.
M. Robey, who had been selected by the
Delta Society to deliver an address on
the occasion, had now arrived. I feel

Thus ended the commencement exer

an occasion of pleasure long to be re-,

The school is in a most prosperous con
dition, numbering on its list of pupils
the present scholastic year, '126. Its
success has been remarkable when we
take into consideration that three years
ago it had a beginning. Capt Bell, the
principal, is wide-awake in his line Hf
understands the system: of school gov
ernment He relies more upon a boy s
honor and pride than upon' written
rules. Disturbances seldom nat the
harmony of his school government; and
he informs me that not an instance has
noma to his knowledge duruurthe last
ten months when one of his pupils has
drank ardent spirits. The next session
will open the litn or August.

A Great Bond Fire.

There was a great bond fire at the
treasury department yesterday. The

of fState's office, Mr. Partin, chief ulerk
in ithe auditor's i department, Donald
Bain, chief clerk of the treasury, and I

tion of the Old bonds to make way for
the new, The bonds were called ofL

curled, blazed, .up. and became .a pile, of
