As much commotion was excited
on the square yesterday, by the ex
hibition of the carcasses of two deer,
as if came had never been known
in this country. They wera teadi
ly disposed of. We believe the deer
were killed among the Bb.ck Moun
tains. We venture -upon the liberty of
transferring to our columns the let
ter of Gen'l R. B. Vance written to
the Statesville landmark, relative to
the S. 0. Deaver matter, adding the
comments of the Landmark thereon.
And we do so without comment,
but hope, for the so doing the- ene
rnien of Gen'l Vance.if there be any,
may not charge us with cither un
truthfulness or injustice.

bacco is that it is of selected leaf,
pure, and free, from the adventitious

Kepler presents iirthis issue m
entirely new bill of fare; one special

which, in variety and excellence,
has rarely been equalled here.
Among these will be found mince
meat. dIuui pudding, cheeses of
many kinds, jams of the most ex
quisite material and flavor, pates of
game, truffled,' potted meats,"' dev

etc.. ad infinitum.
Col. A. H. Baird assumes the re
sponsibility of the article in Wed
nesday's Advance signed "People."
In our reference to the author of
that article we did him, unwittingly,
not suspecting the real author, an
injustice, which we retract, namely,
in saying he was a dead-beat who
had been to Washington and had
hung upon the sufferance or char
it v of some one. We don't believe
Col. Baird has ever visited -that
city on f uch business. We l ave
already characterized the statement
that the Citizen has ever treated
Senator Vance with injustice. ?
Col. S. C, She! ton says he is "Ver
itas" of the same issue of the paper.
As he reiterates.- the-, statements - of
that communication we leave the
matter where we . did before. We
must contess to some surprise at
both of the parties for their expre s
sions and statements. ' . ..

The silutation appeared 'to have

Then the "Sta te' proposed xo prove

LETTER FROM GEN'L VANCE
(From th .Slatesville Landmark.) . '
' Washington, D. C; Dec. 4, 1885
To the Editor of the Landma? k't ' t . ...
"t I saw in the Citizen, Asheville, ;
the letter of "Tar Heel," tfnich, in .
unjust and erroneous. I speak in
reference to S. O. Deaver. These r
are the tacts : Mr. Deaver, with fif-
teen others, had notice that hister- .
vices were not needed in the Third -Auditor's
otnee, because the office,
had more clerks than hece.fsary, Mr;
D. was taken by surprise, and had '
not prepared for going me." He
spoke to me and said hoTexpected to
go home in the spring, but that if
he- could remain until the 1st of
January next, he would resign. So -
iasKearcy Droiher to see Auditor
Williams and request huh to keu
Dim tfntil January. V"Ul Xig
til 4he neriod ment!on(!ri . Th w
til the period mentioned. This was
done. ilr. Deaver has gone home,
finding it best and in fact nrcessary
to go the first of December instead .
This is all there is of the matter,
except to say that Bro. ZebJ did not
go to Ilr. Manning and he only saw
Mr. Williams once as t have stated,
and that at my request. Would it
not have been kind and just if "Tar
Heel" (I suspect -I know him) to
know his facts before he published
them ? And. further, is it not a
better rule, as far as Demoorats are
cencerned. when charges are made
btgainst faithful public servants, to
do so openly r .lhis seems to me to
be manly and proper. If a charge
is worth being heralded to the world
it ought to be done openly and with
out fear.' Thtra were no charges
against Mr. Deaver, so far as 1 know
only that he had been seriously
afflicted, and had to suffer r n op
eration nothing against hi3 morals
or willingness to perform his duties.
If there are other statements I did
not hear ol them, and certainly Gov.
1 V. had heard of none.
I say personally that Mr. D. mar
ried my wife's sister. I can't see in
that any reason why I should mis
treat him. I think my wife's kin is
as much entitled to my good offices
as anybody else. They stand as to
holding offices as other people when
they behave no more, no less.
If the humblest n.agro in North
Carolina, holding a position here,
and I, finding him worthy, was to
ask me to ask his retention till he
could arrange his affairs . to
only a brief period I would cer
tainly help him. .1 have never been
and lupe never to be, an oppressor
of tho helpless. " . v
"Alas! ii las-!'' how ready we are
sometimes to take up an evd report.
Believing you to be a -true Demo
crat, and a high-toned gentle
man, ready to do jutly towards all
men, I have written this explana
tion. With high esteem, Truly,
' Rodt. B. Vanck. '
Upon which the Landmark says:
4 In a letter from Washington,
printed elsewhere , in this paper,
Hon. It. B. Vance makes aatatement
abou1. the reinstatement bf Mr. 3. 0.
Deaver, a Republican, after he had
been discharged from his pcitin
in the Treasury Department. He
contradicts "Tar Heel," the corres
pondent who gaye the facts ..to the
public through the Landmark, in on
ly one statement, however, viz: the
statement that Senator Vance had
visited Secretary Manning us well
as Auditor Williams, in Deaver's
interest."- Of course the fact that
the re-instatement was for a period
of three months and two weeks in
stead of tor an indefinite time, is a
mitigating circumstance. Gen. Vance
writes temperately and v courteously
and wc take pleasure in giving him
a hearing. Mr. Deaver, meantime,
has resigned, aid is reported by the
Asheville papers as having returned
to his home in Buncombe. Whether
or not "Tar HeelV' letter and;his
resignation have any connection
with each other this deponent say-
cth not." , "-' '
