Company f; A of Fayetteville, Major W. F. Cian pi- bell commanding. : Thta company is better known as the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry; at home, by the more endearing' and familiar name of the "Old Indepen dent!; ; This ., organization , has, history, long5 and honorable. ; In 1793 the young United States , were brought close to the verge of open , war with France, eir.rold.ei3 and ally. The wild Republicans o that country,; QTeTthrQwing1 meni archy, society and all its established orders and forms; ,were forced.; into universal war, first of; self.- defence agaiflgt the outraged powers of Eu- . ' '.'' "'-A ' roper tana,;., nuenea ..w-$a .: viciory turning their arm? abroad in 'agert eral crusade of propagaTjdisin. T. J was perhaps very natural -that they . should lopk , to the United States , 0 A merica, the only other country m the worjd which bad adopted, lie publican forms of government, for aid and sympathy., , The,liberties bf America were lrgelyi due to the spirit, the blood and the treasure of France. Gratitude was appealed to and the community of political in terests might inspire the enthusiasm of the Americans to impose their forms of government upon the des; potisms of Europe.' . But the Diree tory of France proceeded in a .verj clumsy way. - They demanded, Tather fthan .asked, the help bf the United States. Their emissaries and their. accredited minister s treat ed with disdain the; conservative temper of the American government, Th ey issued . their proclamations and manifestos in violation of the laws of nations. They appealed from .the President1 to the people; their insolence cecame so intolerable that the French Minister, M. Genet, was ordered to quit the country. ' '. piplo matic intercourse ; " between -the countries was suspended. ' The ex isting French government was greatly-irritated. It authorized a kind of warfare against the United the cruxssrs, maae prey of American commerce.' Two of their war ships, the ImurgenU and La Vengeance came in conflict with U, S. ship Con8tellationt and were captured. The ambition, the power and the successes 'of the French seemed to have no bounds, and this country was in imminent peril of putting its new powers to a Ust. It was at thjstage of affairs that the towij, ol ' Fayetteville was touched with the fires of patriotism. The first town-in this' country to perpetuate the name of -La Fayette by substituting it for the old one of Cioss Cieek, no association of the gratitude due to so distinguished a mempry interfered for a . moment with the call of duty. The Independent- Company" was organized out of the best blood of the place, and its services .' tendered to, the government They were not needed; for France had her hands full nearer home, and had learned the '. true temper of the American people, and respected their policy and tho war cloud drifted away. ; f . The company lived through a very, uneventful existence until the; war of 1812 with Great i Britain. It then promptly,1 tendered its services i to the government, the only' .yolunteer organization of the State that did so, andtin course of time, was t rder- ed to Fort Johnson, at Smithyille, near the , mouth of the Cape , Fear river.7 The war never scarred the - soil of North- Carolina,, nor . stained its waters ; and . the Independent company was fated' to , chafe in in glorious idleness until the coming bf peace. The, State, never prodigal with substaptiial.'rewai'df was suffi ciently, profuse; in . empty. Jionbrs; and the officers, were: all breyetted; n barren compensation'- at the tjme, but by association become; .of price 1 ess, worth. K;Thi3 is the explanation of the anomaly that a company 'is commanded by d Major, and officer-i ed by four captinsJs'i; I !y ; '' " 1 There was .a long , interval ; of.in. glorious ease, in which however, the company lost none- of its -esprit du corps.' The organization was formed, ns we. have said,' of the best blood 61 Fayetleyill,"i JV'was; the, pride of the eons to succeed the fathers, and such succession has been, religiously observed. Service in such a com pany has always been csteeaied fin honor; hd for. nearly a century the joining the Independent company has been almost as essential to the i sat It young men of Fayewcville as a fdM mal declaration of yianiwod as tVe assumption of s the'togaVirilis by the youth pfRonieV Lawyer physi cians, merchants, ".mechanic,' all have tajcen their turn .in the ranks, an. in their turn have -succeeded to command The course bfpromotion is uniform and inflexible. The low est cbrporaU if he servelohg enough, will in time rise to the rank Of Mar jor; but can only do so When those above him' have passed through the me course, by the, rise, and ..w)th- rawal of those who have stfained the highest rank. , The present com mander, jg rihe son of Major Archi bald M; Campbell, who,1! snow; after the lapse of more than5 thirty years sees his son arrived at the head of the ' company . Ninety two years have witnessed such succession; send yet the command has, all; the. vigbr of youth and all the purpose to per petuate its existence. J - '' ; v ' The last, service the 'K Independent company performed' was. . its ; only serious one, tj , During the late war, it promptly- volunteered . and . went as Company ; A of the 1 st Regiment, inAhefn-6ke"bf battle for the first time, in the fight at Big Bethel. J; It wis 'subsequently, on a reorganiza tion, 't thrown in t J the llthv Regi ment, i Coh Leaventhorpe; and from that time until the close of the war, its history is a part of the s history of the war, with its full share- of gallant servici, and with more -than its full share of carnage. Its ranks were again and again , recruited to fill the gaps made by shot and shell. Few families in Fayetteville that did not mourn son or brother; but there Were none to mourn the shame of cowardice or treason. The flag that floats so proudly to-day, was neverilowered in disgraceful flight, .Perhaps after the war was closed, there was no haste to resume r show or pattime the forms of war which bad had such sad andjsuch terrible meaning. Yet peace has its burdens and its duties as well as war; and when those were made ap parent, the Independent Company was again at the service of the State. It is now," as always, one of the lar gest, the best equipped, ' and best drilled companies of the State, proud of its honorable record, and jealous of any possibility that its laurels may ever be stained. : ; . . ; ine tjompany was organized on the 23d of August, 1793. ,; The Recorder is very frank in ex posing the causes which lias led to TrepictrieraTm-evaienT'inIJurnani at the present time. ' The Recorder has'not been wanting in warnings, We infer that the physicians haye been inclined to ignore facts and proclaim a condition . of h ea 1th ful ness that does not exisW: Happily we can say that the au thorities; i of Asheville have acted and are acting on -suggestions made, we may say with . truth, largely on the promptings of the Citizen. The town is clean and it is kept clean; it is healthy; and we hope and believe will remain so, though .we regret to find that the careless use of a piece of State news, referring to another place, carelessly, and by the Wil mington Star, still exercises its mis chievous influence. ' ' To show how inexcusable neglect Of sanitation is. and how at , vari ance with decency and common sense, we quote the following from he Recorder.:',, . , , . , ; "t "With all duo deference ; to' the opinion of our excellent M. D.'s, as to the causes which riengendejr fever and constitutional disorders among the-citizeris of this place, we must insist that the. condition of the back vards in rear? of the stores on the South side of- Main street and the boarding ' houses, saloons, &c, on north ; side Railroad street, have much toMo with the t sickness now prevalent in- the community fish- brine, stagnant . soap suda, chicken entrails, decayed vegetables, , spoilt nsh, etc.; etc. impregnate theatmos . OUR H3RMAL SCHOOL . Concluded its first' session to-day, and,a niost successful session it has been in all respects, ". The Trustees, Messrs." H: A. Gudger, Dr Millard and T. I. Van Gilder, were most for tunate in the selection of a Princi pal and Teachers: Professor White, Principal, and Professors Benj. At kins and Wilson, 'and Misses Good loe and Millard, have not only been most faithful, but proficient in their several department-. Largely over one .hundred teachers; have been in regular attendance, and their atten tion to and interest in the exercises gave tho best evidence of the utility ancl necessity, ;bf such" schools -in general, and of the Asheville school in particular. The Trustees are also fortunatein securing addresses from such 'distinguished "men of letters and practical educators as Dr. Cur ry, Prof. Winston, - Prof, Venable. Maior Bingham, Judge Dick, and others. '- : " To Mr. Starhes the Secretary of the . Board of .Trustees, as ' the effi cient Superintendent of Buncombe county Schools, is special credit due for untiring ; services and efforts in behalf of this school. He has spared no pains or. efforts to make it en tirely successful, and has very large ly contributed thereto. ' - The success of this school sustains the wisdom of the" author" of the measure, which created it in the last legislature HonH. A. Gudger, Sen ator from this district. All meas ures which pertained to the educa tional elevation of the .people of his district or State always commanded his earnest sympathy and support Normal and graded schools he regards as among the very best agencies for a . successful popular education Of the people, and he in troduced and passed the . measure establishing a normal school at Asheville, and, also a measure authorizing a graded . school in this city. We have had the Normal, and have witnessed a most satisfac tory and useful session. It still re mains for the citizens of Asheville to establish the graded school. Mr. Gudger has full cause to be proud of his work in general, but specially of the result of the first session of the Asheville Normal School.
