Having heard ot the death or ueneral
U S. Grant, which occurred on yester
day, as citizens of a common country, re
joicing in a common heritage, in full
sympathy with a common purpose, we,
citizens of and visitors in, Aaheville
meet to unite our sympathies and regrets
with our fellow countrymen over the
intelligence which carries sadness to a
whole natioD.
As Southerners, many of us Southern
soldiers, we wish to proclaim the respect
we all feel for the character and soldierly
qualities displayed by the dead hero at
a time when all save our honor was lost,
and which only his honor protected.
We therefore sincerely mourn the suf
ferings and the departure of General
Grant, and tender to his family and our
countrymen, assurance of our heartfelt
sorrow at the sad event.
We regret we have neither time, nor
space to reproduce the speeches which
followedr some, of which were eloquent,
all of which, were admirable and impres
sive, presenting the salient characteristics
of the great man which have won for
him imperishable fame, and commanded
the respect of all. ':-
Gen'l Clingnian Dr. J. L. M. Curry,
Attorney General Davidson, Hon. Ed

Notwithstanding the many persons in

Dr. J. F. Caviness, of Randolph, is
dead. He was a member of the last
House of Representatives, and will be
pleasantly remembered as a quiet un
assuming' gentleman, and also for his
excellent good sense and bia ability as a
speaker when he waa drawn out. He
was 38 years of ago.
Juege Advocate General Edward T
Boykin, of Sampson county, gave us a
pleasant call to-day. Mr. Boykin has ably
represented his county im both .houses of
the legislature, the last term in the Senate,
andwas elected L'tenant Governor pro tern,
during the session of the ' Senate, serving
until Lieut. Gov. Stedman was sworn in.
Mr. Boykin is one of their most promising
young men in the State, and merits ail he
may receive.

The Colored School.
A reporter of the Citizen attended the
closing exercises of the colored (public)
school, in East Asheville, last night. II.
B. Brown is the principal.
We heard classes examined in spell
ing, reading, geography, grammar, arith
metic, and exercises in singing. The
examinations were conducted by Prof.
Brown, assisted by Professors Oliver,
Sax ton and Leather wood
Wo can not only commend the earnest
zeal of the principal and teachers, their
system of management, &c., but certainly
the pwficianoy of. the . scholars in
general. There wete excellent-citations
by all the classes, and many or the
scholars were very young. The school
is highly creditable to the community
and our colored citizens, and the general
earnestness displayed by our colored
citizens in the matter of education is an
example worthy of emulation by our
own race.
The Tournament and Ball Last Night.
The skating tournament and dance at
the Farmers' Warehouse last evening
was a very pleasant affair throughout.
W. W. Vandiver, Esq., delivered the
charge to the Knights after which they
all wheeled in line and the roIling"began.
There were quite a number of Knights
in the contest, but the following bore off
the honore : ATessrs. Geo. Mosele , Will
Heston, D. F. Summey, and Frank Steff

Summey named Miss Adeline Wicks as
second Maid of Honor; and Mr. Steffiier

' The pne condition imposed by Gen.
Grant before he died upon those who
should decide the place of his burial was
the cause of the delay in fixing spot fo
his interment. - lhe mayor: and the
chief clerk, Mr. Minor, is here and. have
been in consultation with Col. Fred"
Grant He has formally, aud In person
for Mayor Grace, urged acceptance of a
burial spot in any one of the parks id
New York City. - ;V " : .)
..: It is thought by 'the famil or the' de
ceased that the New York proposition
relating to interment is the most desira
ble, and telegraphic communication be
tween Mt. McGregor and the City is now
going on. The invitation from the citi
zens of Springfield, I1L, tendering a
burial place and funeral honors is' not
seriously considered, though the honor
is appreciated. Washington City is
being considered, and also West Point.
Gen. Grant left the whole matter to hia
son Col. Fred Grant; and the decision
will probably be made by him. It is
determined that, whatever the point
selected, the obsequies will begin at Mt.
McGregor as a recognition of the kind
ness of the people of that village.
The President has expressed by mes
sage, a wish that the funeral be a na
tional one under the care of the War
Department, beginning when the remains
reach Mt. McGregor, and ending when
they reach tho place of sepulture.

New York, July 24.
Mrs. T. C. Lentz arrived on the Savan

left her 18 months old baby ' behind her.
She wrote a letter for her husband and
mother stating that they would never

was. the best State in the Union to
emigrate from. Transylvania is one of
the best counties in the State to im
migrate to.' The fertility of its soil, the
large area of virgin forest, the rich, but
undeveloped mineral resources, the
divereity of its products, the varied
beauty of its scenery, the substantial

The regular examination of the teach
ers of the county is over. Our county
superintendent, Rev. W. H. Davis, made
the examination more thoromrh than it
has been prior to this time. Realizing
the wisdom of the remarkable prayer,
"deliver us from temptation," each teach
er was given a seat, separate and apart
from his fellow. Thus seated they were
handed the questions to be answered,
and paper on, which to record the result
of their sole cogitations on the different
queries. -
Scattered over, the spacious court '
room, their faces presented an interest-
ing object of study. ' At first one would
have thought the "dies irae" was near atv
hand. They soon, however, became
accQBtoined to the situation, began work. , V

creditable examinations.
There seems to be a general waking
up on the subject of education. The
cause is enlisting the power of the State,
the influence of communities and tho
energy of individuals. It is a step in the
right direction. Regardless of the na
tural advantages of a country, if it have
nourished no force of thought, produced
no master minds, it occupies only a
secondary position. The grand question
that decides the status of a Nation, State
or community is : How far has it been
prolific of moral and intellectual power?
Are all the teachers of the State satis
fied with the eclecticr business-preparation
tendency of the education of this
day ? " Hold up your hands till you are
