the particulars of which will be fund in this day's
pajier, was a proud day for Cabarrus.
. It was our lot to be present and participate in
the festivities of the Day. . ;
The number present, on this occasion, could not
hive been Idas than 3,000; and notwithstanding
this great crowd, assembled from all parts of tha
county, composed of all classes of citizons, young
oLL-hidiEiLaiid geotlcmeiv-tlia whole affttr
- passed bit with uiicominoii eclat, without one acci
dent to interrupt the harmony and good order
- vfhich prevailed throughout the day. V
The Military display on this occasion, must
v have been gratifying to the pride and patriotism of
every citizen of Cabarrus who witnessed , tbeir
' ' N equipments and admiral discipline. '
i No County with1 which we are scquninted, pos-'
esses a more spirited and well disciplined Militia
