For th Watchman.
In perwirc dream, at ttriliphr, Mabel eat :
Her mien, the amber of declining dar
In pleaaing unta portraya love'a imprem there;
And picturea thought in all iu wondrous waj.
; ' i;
The fairert tilly mingledwith the Rose,
Would typify her sareetjy smiline face
Warm tn her cheeks the health ofgirlhood glows
ttu cuerry up ner perfect Tiaage grace.
The gloomy Hemlock high on yonder knoll
In darkened outlines marks the airy flight
Of yonder snowy fowl that bears aloft
Her plighted Jove Vub- pleasure and delight,
The mifwive gone was not in wanton haste;
Fair Mabel knew the freaks of young-love
The hasty brush may mar the progress gained,
And thus its errors on the can rasa tell.
Stir, there she saf, while twilighulnk to night ;
fehe waits the faithful messenger's return :
Could she nugur the sad, responsive words, ,
She would not haste life's destiny to learn.
The trusty bird true to jit's calling flew
To carry for its mistress Love's sacred prize;
As faithful to her friend as if it knew
The love that in each silk-bound missive lie?.
Ere twilight ceased to gild the distant hills,
And it mellow glow fade from Mabel's brow.
She sees her feathered friend in humid flight
With beating heart she asks, whstf message
With eager hands she grasps the wonted note,
And hastens to undo its silken ties;
Though death hath placed thereon his gloomy
Still unrevealed the mournful message lies. I
"Adieu dear friend; before these dying words"
She reads, "shall reach thy thrice happy door,
All that resxnd in thy unsullied love,
Shall be to Mabel, and to earth, no more !"
Alas! Alas! poor Mabel ceased to read ;
A darkness stoie across her weeping eves;
And in the faint of death, hef pallid form
Had swooned her spirit to her lover flies!
Though Alfred weeps his Love to leave behind
10 urain me bitter cup ot lite alone;
But to his joy, while in the spirit-land,
She whispers, in death am Jyour own."
Grim Monster death ! the great unsated fiend,
now many vows are broken by his deal ;
Still discontent with Alfred's earlv dpnth
Hath placed on Mabel's heart his blackened

aud ready to die for the cause of Southern
Independence and local self-government
a cause kliey believed to be right though
overwhelmed' with defeat and disaster,
only by the power of superior number and
reeou)-cejs. How gallantly they maintained
our cause on the battle field, and alas!
how many of them, bravely gave up their
lives in ;the bloody fight you all too well
and tooj sorrowfully know. And roost
fearfully have ycu suffered for your devo
tion to principle and patriotic duty ! Your
beautiful and flourishing city was laid in
ashes your country desolated your peo
ple impoverished oppressed, and worse
than allj humiliated, by the domination of
ignorance Incapacity, corruption and the
bad influence ot men, strangers and aliens
in interest and sympathy to us all, who
ciroe :to plunder and to rob an impover
ished conn tiy and to fatten on the spoils
of a conqtired people. To add to our
deep mortification, we have seen this
thieving,! dirty work of the carpet-baggers,
urged on and aided by some of our own
native population, for the miserable sake
of office and avarice and a most inglorious
ambition; In common, with the true and
noble people of the South, yon have borne
all this with the most patriotic as well as
patient jendcrance, a philosophic endur
ance which has challenged aud won the
admiration of the world, among civilized
nations, -and even the wonder, if not the
praise of our enemies at home and abroad.
At: the first mtment that yon had a
chance since the war, you triumphed, in
this city atid county, over all the power
and patronage of the government, most
unscrupuotisly used against you, in the
election of onr most excellent Conserva
tive ticket in 1870, which did you so much
honor and useful service in the last Leg
islature. And again in the great contest
of this year on the 1st of this month, against
still greater odds, and a still more unscru.
pulous use of government patronage and
influence, you succeeded in yonr county
ticket, and especially in the triumphant
re-election of one of the moat active, in
telligent and useful and working members
of the Senate of North Carolina, your
patriotic fellow-citizen, Wm. J. Troy.

mutural congratulations. Our cause has
achieved a Substantial victory in North

violations of the election laws, fraudulent
returns, intimidation of voters, appeals to
the fear s hopes aud avarice of timid and
weak-kn)?ed voters, aud all the influence,

that from information received from vari

that if the ballot-box of the 1st of August
be thoroughly purged of tell fraud and
illegal voting, oar State ticlet, headed by
Judge Merrioion, is fairlf elected by the
honest and legal voters of North Carolina.
(Great applause.) Will j yon submit

the law made by your Representatives 1
(Cries of no, no.) Don't yon think the
election ought Co be contested I (We do,
we do, in one universal slmnt ) We want
nothing but an honest, full and fair inqui

representatives of the people of North
Carolina. Great applause and cries of
that s right and we'll have it so. ill
you quietly submit to fraud, and the nttcr
dcetiuction of the elective franchise,
lies at the very foundation of yourliberties?
no, never J. ell, then, do you umnnd
an investigation into these frauds bv the
Legislature ? We do. You are right,
fellow-citizens, and I tell you now, that if
you quietly submit to these great outrages
on the ballot and gross violation of the
elective laws, you will never have a fair
and free election in North Caioliua. Good
people will turn away in despair, if not
disgust, with this great bulwaik of our
liberties, as it ought to be, and would be,
if honesty supported and maintained in
all its strength and purity. Applause.
No, fellow citizen?, we cannot, we must
not, as freemen and patriots, submit to
these outrages on the ballot, if wc wish
to maintain our liberties, whenever a fair
and just ground for iuvestiga'ion h laid

be kept not only pure but unsuspected.
We have cause, therefore, my fellow
citizens, to rejo;ce and congratulate each

judgment of posterity will do him this
high honor. I wish I had litre to say
more about him. I know him well. I
served in Congress with him. His very
eccentricities of opiniou are all on his side
of virtue and humanity and in sympathy
for the good f mankiud. In time of war,
while he was for its vigorous prosecution
as long as it was inevitable, he was always
the friend f peace with the South, and
made no secret cf his opinions. Aud
when the bloody sliife closed he was op
enly, iu his first utterances, for mercy and
magnanimity, and he declared his opin
ions and his faith, in the face of the world,
by deeds of courage, generosity and stat
manship and real friendship for the oulh
aud its leaders, that no other Northern
man dared to exhibit. He not only went

No. 1 must stop. Greeley and Biown,
your representative champions, are states
men, patriots, honest men whatever their

There is no concealment. Raise high,
then, the banners which proclaim our
piinciples. Inscribe upon them fraterni

you shall conquer. Lit our watchwoid be,
work, work. Organize in every country

united as one man in a common canse, for
the good of our common country. Purify
the temples of liberty which our fathers
made, but which have been turned into
dens of theivts. I know, here, in Fay
etteville and in Cumberland, from the
spirit this night shown, that yon will do
your duty in November (We will, we
will.) But let us call on all our brethren
in North Carolina, for the sake of peace,
and liberty, aud honest and good govern

J ter season the dinners were generally oni-
lorm ; me am course was a dish of broth
generally called porridge ; these generally
bad a few beans in them, aud some dry
summer savory scattered in. The second
courts was an Indian puddinr wKh sauce
iu inira was a aub or botfod pork and
bevf, with round turnips for sauce. Po
tatoes were then a scarce article, ihrre
bushels being considered as a very large
crop ; and I waa a considerably larce lad
before I ever saw a potato as atv
hen's eee. For auDoers and brVf,.t.
they general!y bad a dish of the same
broth, those who had milk which were
not many in the winter; bad that with
toasted browu bread or roasted anrdeafor
breakfast, and hasty pudding for sapper.
For an exchange they sometimes had a
basin of sweetened cider with toasted
bread in it, with a piece of cheese. On
Sabbath day morning ihey renerallv had
chocolate, coffee,' or bohea tea; the choco
late and coffee sweetened with molasses,
the tea with brows sugar; wiih it they
had pancakes, doughnuts, brown toast,
some sort of pie some of all of them.
Dinuers they had none; but immediately
after the afternoon service they had a
supper, a roast goose or turkey, a roast
spare rib or a stew pie and this was the
common course through the winter season.
In the spriug and summer they generally
oo week days had milk for supper and
breakfast. For dinners (then potatoes
were generally gone and round turnips
were too piihy to tat) they ued French
turnips till greens came, and then-' greens
were used for sauce till peas and green
beans were ready for rse. As for flour it
was a thing unknown; at that lime 1
doubt there ever having been a barrel of
flour in the town. Every farmer broke
up a piece of new ground and sowed it
with wheat and turnips, and would raise
from five to fifteen bushels of turnips.

In general, men, old or young, who had
got their growth, had a decent coat, vest
and small clothes, and some kind of fur

would last half an age ; old men had
great coat and a pair of boots, the boots
generally lasted for life ; for common use
they had a long jacket or what was called
a fly coat, made something liko our snr-
touts, reaching down about half way the
thigh ; a striped jacket to wear under it
with a pair of small clothes like the coat.
These were made of flannel cloth fulled.
but not sheared ; flannel shirts and stock
ings and thick leather shoes ; a silk hand
kerchief for holydays, which ould last
ten years. In the summer lime a pair
of wide trowsers (now out of use) reach"
ing half way from the knee to the ancle ;
shoes and stockings were not worn by the
young men and but by few old men iu
farming business. As for boys, as soon
as they were taken out of their petticoats
1 a a m
lliey were put into small cl tlies, winter
or summer. This continued until long
trowsers were introduced which were then
called tongs; they were but little differ
ent from our present pantaloons. There
were made of tow cloth, liuen or cotton
and soon were used by old men and
young through the warm season ; at last
they were made of flannel cloth and of
thick cloth and were the general cost a me
of the winter. Yoang men never thought
of great coats, and surtouta were then un
knot n. I recollect a neighbor of my fa
ther's who had four sous between 19 and
30 years of age ; the oldest got a pair of
boots, the second a surtout, the third a
watch, and the fourth a pair of silver buc
kles. This made a neighborhood talk,
and the family were considered as on the
high road to insolvency.
As for the w omen, old and young, they
wore flannel gowns in the winter; the
young women wore in the omruer short
wrappers or shepherdess, and aboat their
ordinary business did not ware stocking's
and shoes ; they were generally contenU-d
with one calico gown, but they usually
had a caliraanco gown, another nf camblet
aud some had them made of poplin. The
sleeves were short, and did not come be
low the elbow ; on holy days ihy wore
one, two or thiec nifties on each arm, the
deepest of which were sometimes nine or
ten inches; they wore long gloves coming
up to the elbow, secured by what were
called glove-tightens, msde of horse hair -Round
gowns had not then com in fash
ion, so they wore aprons, made of check
ed linen, cotton, and for holy day use, ot
white cotton, long lawn or cambric. 1 hey
