J P. CAMERON,
FRIDAY EYEING, JUNE 5, '85;
ate .OO PES A.2Z"2!TXTXC
A WANT NOT YET SUPPLIED.
- In another place in, this issue will
be found an extract from the New
Orleans Times-Democrat setting
forth some of the good influences of
the North Carolina eihibit at the
great. Exposition. This is good as
far as it goes. The influence upon
great ; industrial, enterprises will
. prove to be very powerful, and the
results will be extensive and far
s reaching. But the body upon which
t-r that influence was exercised is com?
paratively small being connned to
those who were there and saw for
themselves. "The ten. of thousands
throughout-: the country .who'are
moved by tire spintof change or cu-
, riosity,or impelled by 'the energies
of enterprise, or urged by - the ne
cessities of misfortune,-to seek new
fields' or new homes were not
reached except through hearsay;
and ; hearsay is -.'" not always
when its utterances are
put forth by , such visitors
as were impressed by what
they saw. but from selfish motives
would rather be inclined to appro
priate what was good for themselves,
and give, out inaccurate statements
. as to the rest.
". Something more is wanted to give
the details, of - the resources and,
characteristics of North Carolina,
more striking features and more in
telligent publicity. There is an ac
tive and earnest Spirit of inquiry
abroad, which has not been an
swered, and will not be answered
until information is more largely
and more impartially diffused.
Other States, far less varied in at
tractions of climate, scenery and all
the many sources of prosperity
' than North Carolina, have been il-
ustrated to the minutest particular
with an industry and a skill that
amounts to genius. It has had its
rewards Florida is as well known,
not only to the tourist, but to the
emigrant, ..by means of maps, and
illustrations and descriptive pam
"phlets, as any county or township,
the home of such emigrant or tour
ist North - Carolina, . with much
, ' greater 'imotive to such aetion, has
had little of such work .done and
nothing, in a comprehensive way,
At the State Exposition last year
there were distributed creditable
and instructive pamphlets, descrip
tive of sections and counties, the
fruits of local intelligence. The Al
bemarle, "section had full justice
done to :it. The counties of New
Hanover, Robeson, Guilford, Frank
Jin, wake and a tew - otaers were
thus lepfesented. ,; Illustrated .rail'
road pamphlets presented special
interests, and to that extent have
rendered service. But that is hot
enough. . That is only a beginning,
and it is ft beginning, made by au
thorities, not : especially urged by
..general interest to "such, work." Of
j necessity, such work is local or spe
cial We want something general
and comprehensive, something that
we might hope in time would draw
attention to all parts of. the State.
Such work might at least be begun
by the General Commissioner" of
Immigration for North . Carolina.
Such apparently, we may look for in
vain, tast year we entered , our
complaint and our protest against
the narrow localizing of the work
of an officiajhVliad at least the
name and authority - of a State
Agent, aud to whose pay the people
of the wiwle State contributed. We
had no ccwnplaint to mate that he
was aidjmg inHhTrrdevelopment Tf
any partf the' Stated On th con
trary xwtroVeiy-rg1ad'' of it,
k nowing that e i-ery thing annot be
done'at once,' and ; hoping "and ; believing-
Uiat .'oher sections " would
have consideration- in turn. We
did object, however, to the authority
of the State "being used ;to sustain
some special project or some special
combination and detriment of -all
other interests. Our remonstrances
had their effect ; and VLtU Patrick
tore "himself from the seclusion of
Vine Land and Southern Pines, and
visited Asheville, with the expressed
purpose of spending two or threo
months in Western North Carolina.
Two or thrte days sufficed to satisfy
his curiosity and fill his stock, of
information. That is the last of Mr.
Patrick and he was called into re
membrance by the visit recentlyof
a gentleman of this section largely
interested in Wesfern North Carolina
land.'?, who was anxious to obtain
pamphlets or information embrac
ing the - whole State, to be sent
abroad. lie. obtained i.ot a single
one, nor di-.I he obtain any informa-.
lion "of valne ,- but he did obtain the
pamphhtts referred to above, and a
good deal showing Mr. Patrick's
very close connection with Vine
lands. Amonj others, ij a circular
in which Mr. Patrick is pleased to
announce that he has made certain
very eligible arrangements with the
management o the R. & G., R; A.
A. L., and - Carolina Central roads,
'comprising 'the Seaboard Air Line,
for the benefit of all non-residents
of North Carolina, who rent or pur
chase 1 lands on the said Seaboard
Air. Line. So far, so good. But ifc
appears that this was the sole ar
rangement "-. with railroads made.
Not another document relative to
other-roads or lines was presented,
though asked for. ,
Again ; we- have U copy of the
South Atlantic Magazine, New York,
April; 1884: '; The new winter resort
at Vineland is described and spoken
of as the town , formed under the
special v supervision of John T. Pat
rick, Genebal Immigrant Agent of
the State." . Can a man be called a
general agent when he devoteshim'
Belf to specialties ? , w.
We rejoice in the good that has or
may come to other parts' of the
State by- the ? State ' Immigration
Agency." But we do say that Western
North Carolina, ; which bears an
eaual share in the support of that
agency, is, and has been, neglected,
and that no indication is given that
the complaints - made last year
are proposed to " be remedied
through that agency.. . - "
OF TllE RACES.
Confirmatory of the statement
made by us the other day that 'the
urban mortality of the negroes was
in excess of that of the whites, the
numbers being equal or nearly . so,
we note the following Monthly
Mortuary reports which have since
come to hand :
Dr. F. H. Potter, Superintendent
of Health for Wilmington makes
the following report for the month
of May: Deaths, whites, 3 males, 6 fe
males; 6 adults, 3 children. Total 9.
Colored, 9 males, 14 females,' 12
adults, 11 children; total 23. Pop
ulation of Wilmington, 20,000 or
thereabouts, nearly equally divided.
Dr. Scarr, .Superintendent of
Health for Charlotte, reports for the
month of May two deaths among
the whites, one female adult and
one child.. In one Cemetery alone,
Pineville, there were 13 interments
of colored people. The population
of Charlotte is- betweef lO and 12,
000, the whites' somewfhat In excess.
The Charlotte Ubssrver in com
menting npon- the report of Dr,
Scarr says :
"The mortality among the color
ed people is alarming. The physi
cians say that .they . are dying -al
most- as if by cholera. Up to
yesterday, June the 3d, there were
six 'deaths since June 1st among
The cause of this is very evident.
Freedom brought many blessings
to the negro, but it carries with it
many curses, chief of which is the
unbounded license of idleness and
dissipation. . It is very certain the
race will not possess the ' land by
viriue oi rapia
over the whites.

RESULTS OF ' THE NEW OR
The Times-Democrat speaking of
the good effected for the South by
the exhibit of the industries and
products of the different States,
gives the following illustration for
North Carolina : v
"The fine display of native woods
iq" the North Carolina department
three rwceks ago, attracted-the atten
tion of ai!party -of' Eastern ; capital
ists who were doing . the'FairZ-with
an eye to the iriaifl" chance, as is
largely the custom with 4 that sort of
people. On leaving the Crescent
City these gentlemen lost no time
in visiting the localities in the Old
North State where the timbers ex
amined were to be found. The State
Cbmtnission -in ew Orleans has
just received notice that r. the visit
has resulted in thejpurchase by the
same party of 72 000 acres of timber
land. - The display of clays and
valuable minerals has also led to
important . developments i. the
' Secretary Bayard arrived at St.
Louis on the 3rd, on his way, to
Columbia, Mo., where ho was to de
liver an address on Thursday at
the University. He was given an
informal reception at the Merchant's
Exchange in St. Louis. . In the
course of his remarks he said:
As one of the "advisers of Presi
dent Cleveland I think I am justi
fied in saying that the Administra
tion will ;jnake ; every endeavor: to
allay every remnant of sectional
feeling in every particular. The
Adminisfrrtion" ia for the whole
country and not for only & part of
it : Goon without fear, embark in
your enterprises, be at ease and
everything, you may be sure, will
be done to-protect arid advance the
interests ' of every citizen of the
United States." " .
Some mean men in New Orleans
have obtained an injunction preven
ting the city council r paying $5,000
for the expenses of the Liberty
bell. ." -- ' -

Carolina, adjourned $ine dieon Satur

the highest authority that the war
question is practically settled in a
satisfactory manner. ; The main
features of the adjustment have

The General Assembly of. the
Presbyterian Church, South, in ses
sion at Galvestcn, Texas, failed to
settle the question about a man's
marrying the sister of his deceased
wife. - The question was on an
amendment to the confession of
Faith proposing to omit the provis
ion forbidding marriage with a
deceased wife's sister. Forty-eight
Presbitenes were reported as con
curring, seven as not concurring,
and fourteen as not replying. The
concurrence of three fourths being
necessary, the subject was postponed
until the next Assembly.
A feature in the investment mar
ket last week was the selling of big
blocks of Fehsylvaiila Viulroacl ofoeR
by investors-a considerable percen
tage of the selling orders being from
European capitalists. This proves,
of course, that moneyed men think
there are better things to buy than
even the best ' American railroads,
simply because they think it on the
cards that in the immediate future
such stocks are .likely to decline,
while in certain foreign properties
there is a prpbablity of arise. There
is nothing of more frequent" recur
rence than practical proofs that
capital is quite as apt to be wrong
as right in its forecast; and it is no
longer thi rule of the majority to
venture beyond the immediate pre

ple who are now buying English
consols at 101 1, were anxious sellers
below 95. Modern speculation con
