THE NEWS AND OBSERVER ON
The Raleigh News and Observer is
ferociously indignant becaus3 tho Ob
server reproduced an article from the
Statosrille American in reply to chr.rges
against Dr. Mott, and indulges in a
good deal of nonsense that hardly be
comes a journal which regards itself as
a sort of a model for the press of the
State. We published the article, as we
had the previous articles from the News
and Observer which, called forth the
defense, and in the same paper pub
lished the comments of the News and
Observer, that the two articles might
go together. The article of the News
and Observer had no head and we gave
it one.on which the News and Observer
places just the contrary construction to
what was intended, and on this mis
conception it flies into a rage. Our
.meaning was that the article on which
the News and Observer was comment
ing was not a "satisfactory" answer and
never supposed that any other construc
tion would be placed upon it. If. it was
our intention to enter into the discus
sion we should not have expressed our
opinion in a head line simply. As to
the "abuse" in the article of the Amer
ican we attached very little importance
to it, and didn't consider it worth while
to rewrite it to eliminate the expletives
etc., of, the American ; as far as having
any sinister motive, which seems to be
supposed, that never occurred to ils.
We have no desire to hurt the News
and Observer, there is room enough
in the world for it and the Observer,
and if we had we should not go to
Statesville to borrow weapons to at
This much we have written to relieve
the News and Observer from its false
impressions, and acquit the Observer
from the suspicion of desiring to injure
We will remark in conclusion that
the editor of the News and Observer
should not fly off at a tangent and let
his choler get away with his sense, nor
the accustomed dignity which he prides
himself on wearing:, and which as a
rule characterizes his journalistic de
meanor. It is the easiest thine in the
world to write sharp words which might
pass forsarcastic words,which might be
regarded by some people as crushers,
but it is not profitable. It is a waste of
genius and shows bad taste, if not a
small mind. It is too small a business
for as great a mind as that which pre
sides over the columns of the News
and Observer, a mind distinguished for
its eminent ability and marvelous vig'
or throughout the length and breadth
of this commonwealth and perhaps the
States adjacent thereto.

LIMITING THE TERM OF COLLEC
The bill introduced Thursday in Con
gress limiting the term of collectors of
internal revenue to four vears has
merit in it. In addition to other points
in its favor it would have a tendency
to prevent aouses ana aisnonesty in
the administration of the office if the
incumbent knew that at the end of
four years he must step out and some
one eise wouia step in. it would be a
decided check on the dishonestlv dis
posed. When the office extends for an
indefinite number of years, term after
term with the same incumbent, there is
ample time to cover up much of the
devilment that is not forgotten. Men
who remain in omce a long time are
apt sto become lax if they are not abso
lutely corrupt. The four year limita
tion is a good move.

A friend furnishes some details of
the following, to which we add a few
particulars learned elsewhere.
On the first of December last a nartv
of friends assembled at the residence
of Mrs. Robinson, in the Cedar Cliff
section, to witness the marriage of her
daughter, Miss Dora Robinson to Mr.
. The table was spread, ths bride at
tired, and ready with her attendants,
but the groom tarried ! And not until
next day was an explanation received ;
a note stated that he was not ready for
entering into matrimony.
Negotiations ensued, and on the 20th
of January, the wedding came off at
the same place and everything went
merry as wedding bells should. Both
bride and groom were popular in the
neighborhood, and the old people
thought well of them. They made
their home with Mr. Bivens's father,
and apparently were as happy as young
married folks should be.
On Sunday morning, before day
break. Feb. 5th. ten days after the wed'
ding, the husband slipped out of bed,
and creeping down stairs got a sum of
monev. nulled off his stockings, and put
on his boots, and going to the stable,
took his horse and galloped two miles
to the house of a friend. Leaving his
horse in the yard, he walked to New-
lin's mill dam and started into the wa
ter; but presently came out, and walk
ed up the bank to a spot where the wa
ter is 15 feet deep. I he river was
much swollen at the time.
Biven's was missed at daybreak, and
easily tracked to the wateredgerThe
search was carried on by several nun
dred citizens of the vicinity; and the
mill dam repeatedly dragged. The af
fair is deemed a specially sad one by
those who know the parties. Farmer
The body of Mr. Bivens has not been
found in Newlin's pond, and probably
never will be. The story of the drowp
ing appears to be all a hoax, and the
supposed victim has doubtless fled to
parts unknown. He will likely turn
up in some distant State.
