HONOR THE DEAD.
To-day the good people of .North Car
olina, in compliance with a custom sa
cred in its origin and sacred in its per
formance, assemble to pay the annual
tribute of respect over the graves of
the gallant men who battled and died
for the land they loved. They gather
not in any sectional or partisan spirit,
but as patriots to do honor to the mem
ory of patriots who gave to their coun
try's call that first and greatest of all
sacrifices their lives. Under the mel
lowing influences of time the bitterness
born of the causes that led to, and the
participation in the fierce struggles in
which brave determined men met
brave, determined men, and struggled
for the mastery on the field of carnage
- and death, has, to a great extent, passed
away, and even the enemy the Southern
soldier then faced in deadly conflict
looks on with kindly feeling while pious
hands strew flowers over the graves of
the brave, chivalric dead. Not unf re
quently the Southern and the Northern
floral offerings decorate the graves of
the friend and foe alike.
It is well it should be so. It is well
the bitter memories born of strife
should vanish and only the tender rec
ollections that mark our common hu
manity, common brotherhood and com.
mon patriotism should remain, and be
treasured. So think they who to-day
gather at these sacred shrines to pay
the tribute that living patriotism pays
to dead valor.
It is not the men whose ashes lie be-.
neath the sodded mounds who are hon
ored, for to most of those who weave
and strew the garlands o'er them in life
they were unknown ; they belong now
almost to a past generation and are un
known but by the record of their deeds
and the story of their devotion. It is
the soldier, not rigged in the gay trap
pings of triumphal march, in all the
pomp and circumstance of war, but the
soldier who has marched the long
march, fought the hard fight, gave his
breast to the foe and died, as only brave
men know how to die, on the line of
duty, giving no thought to self, but all
to the country which was dearer to
them than life. Not honor the memo
ry of such heroism ? Not teach our
children to cherish and guard with sa
cred reverence the names and fame of
such heroes? Perish the thought that
they should be forgotton and wither
manhood that would forget them.
Though past the conflict be, and
though in the darkness of defeat was
the Southern banner furled and laid
away, no period of the Southland's his
toryjshines more brightly than the four
years in which the living and dead Con
federate soldier held those banners
aloft and did deeds that startled a
haughty foe and won the admiration of
a gazing world. They made a history
that is our grandest heritage on the
scroll of glory, a history that grows
brighter and more glorious as time rolls
on, and the clouds of passion and preju
dice vanish before the light of truth that
time throws upon their deeds and mo
tives. If ever men acted from pure,
disinterested, patriotic motives, it was
they; if ever men threw defiance
in the face of overwhelming numbers,
and relying upon their own right arms
and the justice of their cause, threw
down the gage Of battle, it was they;
if ever men reckoned not the cost in a
cause they deemed just, and staked
their lives on the issue with a cheerful
ness that made martyrdom thrice glori
ous, it was they. Oh ! if all the self
sacrificing devotion and dazzling deeds
of valor of those four years of strife
could ba known and inscribed on the
pages, where they might be read by
men, what a magnificent record it would
make for the living and the dead.
Strew flowers, honor the dead, speak
proudly of their deeds, which, while
making their names imperishable.honor
you as the inheritors of the land they
loved and the history they made. They
and you are linked inseparably. Living
they were yours in blood and lineage,
dead they.are yours to guard and treas
ure. Guard their fame and treasure
it fondly, for it is yours as well as
theirs'tis what they dying left you
and you honor yourselves as much in
doing them honor as you honor them
They have crossed the river with that
grandest of heroes, "Stonewall," to rest
in the shade. The eulogies you speak
and the flowers you strew can add
naught to the fullness of their fame,
but do honor to you in showing that you
appreciate the sacrifices of the brave
men who struggled and died
that those who came after them
might live and be free. Green be their
memory and fresh kept their fame as
the bays that decorate and the flowers
that shed sweet perfume over their

Whatever ihe rnolh e, whoever the
perpetrators, it is a sad blow to Ireland,
which had' just Vfgun, under the strong
influence of. pubUg ppinion.,to secure
some of the fruits of her long-euutinued
agitation, in the changed policy of con
cession and conciliation which 'liiad
been announced, fur it will embittef the
opposition, and possibly cause such a
reaction that, instead of concession and
conciliation, more stringent measures
of coercion may be resorted to. For
her sake, if for no other reason, we
trust the perpetrators of this diabolical
crime may be apprehended and brought

Fall River, Mass., May 9. A num
ber of cotton mills here and in Boston,
Lawrence and Taunton, have purchas
ed cotton through brokers, from L.
Green, commission merchant, Colum
bus, Miss., against whom Green sold to
banks in Columbus his drafts with bill
of lading. Green was agent for the
White Star transportation line at Co

such drafts upon parties in New Eng
land which were accepted and paid, but
no cotton arrived. Green has fled, hav
ing realized between 50,000 and $00,-000.
Horse vs. Snail lor $20,000.
A curious match was made recently
in Paris between a horse and a snail for
820,000. The owner of tht former, a
young Count, well-known in sporting
circles, backed himself to ride the ani
mal from the Pont de la Concorde to
Versailles and back, thirty-eight kilo
meters, or nearly twenty-five miles, in
two hours, while a wealthy Burgun
dian backed the snail in the same period
to crawl two meters and four-fifths
say eight feet upon the cushion of a
billiard table. According to the condi
tions of the match, the backer ot the
snail is at liberty to stimulate and steer
it with one fresh cabbage leaf spnnk
led with powdered sftgar. snail races
have been run in England before now,
in the fierce gambling times of just a
century ago, but the contest between a
horse and a snail is something new.

The cable Saturday night announced
the shocking news that Lord Frederick
Cavendish and Under Secretary Burke
were assassinated in Phoenix Park,
Dublin, one of the most crowded re
sorts of that metropolis, Saturday af

stated that the result of the investiga

that as the committee had not con

on tne istn instant would defeat the
object of the investigation, he asked
that the adjournment resolution be re-,
considered. Accordingly a resolution
asking the Senate to return the ad
journment joint resolution was adopted.
