BEAUTIFUL APPEABANCE OF THE
HAIJU .. .
The hall leadinz to the conservato
ries looked In the distance from the
east room to be a veritable . study in
crimBon and green. The carpet was or
the richest shades or aaxK reas, wiin
an attractive borderinp;, and the wall
was lined around with seemingly the
loveliest specimens of rare flowers.
A DISTINGUISHED AND HANDSOME
Tocommete the picture it required
to have taken the glance at it just as the
receiving party was descending the
private stairway (which is in this hall)
to take their places in the blue parlor,
the ladies in their handsome dresses
and the tall, commanding figure of the
Chief Executive as he followed .with
his son and daughter, and accompanied
dv Mr. seveiion urown, or me state
Department. The group as they
formed into line in the blue parlor was
as distinguished and handsome a one
as ever stood to refceive the N"ewx ear's
reetlng there. The Secretary of State,
. Jb relinehuvsen, introduced nis as
sociates in the cabinet and the mem
bers of the foreign legations With gen
tlemanly ease and grace. .Later Mr.
Sevellon Brown, the chief clerk of the
State Department, made tne introduc
tions. THE PRESIDENT'S APPEARANCE.
President Arthur was attired in a
handsome black suit, Prince Albert
coat, and wore a lavender tie and lav
ender gloves. His manner of receiving
was dieniQed. tnougn agreeaDie ana
easy, but to well-known persons and
his own particular mends ne was very
cordial. He impressed every one with
the polish of his manners, but as if the
cares of state weighed heavily. He
did not care to give the occasion
an unusually festive nature, and that
is the reason why the gas was not
lighted, as the household is of course
yet in mourning. The invited guests
who attended the reception receired
black-margined cards of invitation, as
well as those issued to a limited tew to
witness it. The quarter hour spent in
in the red parlor by the foreign repre
sentatives passed quickly in the ex
change of the compliments of the day.
THE PECULIAR MAKE-UP OF THE LINE.
The make-up of the line was very
peculiar. Peer and vassal, rich and
poor, well-dressed or covered with the
attire of the mechanic, came to the
President in groups. Now and then
the countryman could' be distinguished
by his butternut suit, ana immense
mittens, some of whom forgot them
selves so much as to keep them on their
hands. There were some people who
were so ignorant of propriety that they
wore no collars. While these public
receptions are by no means full-dress
affairs, and people in business suits are
welcomed, as much as if they were at
tired in the height of fashion, it is
always understood that callers should
be dressed decently. Some of the call
ers to-day violated this rule very much.
NO EXTRA PRECAUTION.
A line of policemen extended from
the main door through the ball and
into the blue room as is usual on such
occasions, but many supposed, in view
of recent events and the talk about
"cranks," it was an extra precaution,
and with that idea it was a subject of
talk. But there were no more police
men than have been there for the past
fifteen years, if indeed as many. There
were two or three detectives on the
portico duriner the first hour of the re
ception, but the coolness in the atmos
phere drove them away after that.
Towards the latter part of the recep
tion there was much crowding about
the portico, and several ladies were
seriously crushed, one being injured so
much that she was taken into one 01
the private rooms of the house for ne
cessary treatment and a chance to allay
her excitement and nervousness in
consequence of the jostling that she
received. There were more callers
than at any similar reception since
Gen. Grant s first term, and nearly
twice as many as during the last New-
Years reception held Dy president
THE DOORS CLOSED.
When two o'clock arrived the order to
close the doors was given, though they
were not closed for some time after
wards. As it was, many were unable
to sea the President, thouzh thev had
stood patiently in the cold for one hour

AFTER THE OFFICIAL RECEPTION.
After the official part of the recep
tion was concluded all the ladies except
Mrs. Brewster, Mrs. Logan and Miss
Arthur left him. These ladies re
mained with him until the reception
closed, the President's son standing
with them. There were no introduc
tions to the ladies, and they had to
stand the eazine of those who filed by
a duty which is not at all a pleasing
one when the callers are as promis
cuous as those who make up the crowd
like that which passed through the
White House to-day.
LIVELY SCENES IN THE EAST ROOM.
The east room, which of course is
larger than all the other rooms on the
lower noor or the w nite Mouse com
bined, and historical from the many
distinguished Catherines that have
taken place there, was the scene of
much lire to-day. it was kept crowded
nearly all of the time; so much so.
that locomotion was impeded at times.
It never looked better than it does
now, the pew furniture being bright
and handsome, nut it was seldom
colder; wraps for the ladies and over
coats for the sentiemen were not at an
uncomfortable, and most of those who
spent the time there to-day, "admiring
and being admired," wore them. One
could hardly imagine, though it is one
of 'the best authenticated legends of
the house, that the time eyer waa when
the now elezantlY and handsomely fur
nished room, ws used as a drying
room, and vet it is the fact. It was in
the east room that Mrs. President Ad
ams had her clothes hung to dry. Its
only ornamentation those days was
here and there a elotbea line strung
across the room. Mrs, Adams thought
the architect bad made a great mistake
when he set aside nearly "one-half of
the lower floor and called it a room,"
and then the time would never come
when it would be necessary to hold
those who visited the White House.
The time has come, and the architect,
if he made a mistake at all, made a
mistake in not making it even larger.
THE PRESIDENT PLEASED.
The President was as much interest
ed in the scenes that transpired about
him during the day as almost any one
of his callers. The 'whole thing waa a
novelty to biro, and was his first expe
rience in that direction, to ene or tne
oldest attaches of the Executive &$an,
sion he said, after the Reception was
closed 1 1 Well bow - aid my reception

place here ?" On being told that it was
much larger, than any of Mr. Hayes's
and exceeded In numbers any of Gen.
Grant's except one, lie saM: "Then I
hare reason to be thankful for- the
compliment. It was;a very'bleasant
occasion to me." Tbouzh'- President
Arthur has been a frequent visitor to
this city in bast yearsV he told a gentle
man yesterday that he bad never made
a Sew Years can at the White House,
though he had often made up his mind
to do so. He said he: came to1 this city
some years ago for that particular pur
pose, but something. transpired which
prevented him from 'carrying out his

promptly at one o'clock. Even a half

one o'clock this number had, assumed
the proportions of a crowd. The line
was formed soon afterwards and in
fifteen minutes . ittfiached from the
door of the White House almost to the
Treasury Departmefejj -
Mr. Brown did not5 introduce each
one, and frequently as many as four or
five shook the hand of the President
without the formality of an introduc
tion. The ladies, however, were intro
duced by 'name. This was done by
each one announcing their name to
Mr. Brown as they reached him, he, in
turn, presenting them. President Ar
thur was particularly pleased with bis
j avenue callers, and lifted many up in
his arms when presented.

The agreement lately made by Dr.
Cancdo and the commissioners ap
pointed by the Legislature to sell the
State's stock in the above named cor
poration is too lengthy for us to print
in extenso. We have compiled a synop

Company, to be held as the present
private stockholders hold their stock,
and the said company agrees to pay
within sixty days after the ratification
of the agreement fifty-five thousand
dollars to the Treasurer of the State and
one hundred thousand dollars to Presi
dent Gray, to be used in paying off the
floating debt of the company.
Within twelve months from the rati
fication the road is to be completed and
equipped in good running order from
Kaemont, near the south Carolina line,
by way of Shoe Heel and Fayetteville
to Greensboro. It is to be built and
equipped, within two years, in like
manner from Greensboro to Mt Airy,
passing by Brace's X Roads,' Walnut
Cove and Germanton. Within three
years it is to be fully completed from
Fayetteville to Wilmington, and up the
valley of the Yadkin by way of Wilkes
boro to Patterson, in the county of
Caldwell, and also through the county
of Surry to Ore Knob, according to the
provisions 01 the charter.
Within thirty day3 alter the pay
ment of the $155,000 the work is to be
gin, with sufficient force and material.
and be continued until completed. On
the payment of the $155,000 the certifi
cate for the stock sold is to be assigned
on the books of the company, but the
new certificate is to be deposited with
the Treasurer of the State as trustee
for the State and for the purchaser, and
if the purchaser fails to complete the
road in three years then it forfeits all
interest in the stock and it reverts to.
the State,, the purchaser losing entirely
the $155,000 pam. The mortgage bonds
of the railroad company are also to be
deposited with the State Treasurer,
and are to be delivered up for sale only
with the approval of the Governor, and
then in amounts not greater than $300,
000 and upon an affidavit that the pro
ceeds are necessary to pay for work
done or material delivered. The pur
chasers are to vote the stock at all
meetings of the railroad company.
If the $155,000 is not paid within
sixty days after the ratification of the
agreement the sale falls through, but
Dr. Canedo has twenty days to get his
syndicate to sign it, and then the rail
road company nas twenty days to ac

the articles signed in twenty days the
agreement is not to be binding on the
State. The guage of the road is not to
A failure to begin work in thirty
days, or to complete the different parts
of the road recording to this agreement,
subjects the purchaser to a penalty of
352,500 per montn as long as tne aeiaurt
continues, which, however, the Gover
nor can remit in his discretion, and if
not remitted the penalties are a lien on
the stock, which shall be sold to satify
the same. And if the entire road is not
built according to the contract the en
tire stock is forfeited to the State.
Such is the substance of the agreement.
It appears, therefore, that the first
thing to be done is for Dr. Canedo to
get the signature of his associates; the
next the acceptance of the contract by
the railroad company. These have to
be done within forty days. Then with
in sixty days the money is to be paid,
and within thirty days more the work
is to begin. If things work right, there
