whom we had always delighted to honor, one
L who had spent amongst us l"a long life of honor
and usefulness who, had always posse ed in a
remarkable degree tbe confidence of the com

good man. V '
Mr. J. M. McCorkle said :
Mr. Chairman? "
The people ;of North Carolina are called
upon to-day to mOurft the loss of a distinguish
ed son, a great and good man. But the people
of Salisbury have deeper cause for mourning.
As you, Mr. chairnan well know, the deceased
spent his life here. Just after he had attained
his majority, under the old borrotlgh system he
represented the bdrrough of Salisbury! in : ihe
House of Commons and since then he has held
many positions of honor, and in none of them
has he ever betrayed bis trust. ' Be was alwavs
as true to the post of duty, as true to the in

not call back tbe manly form, and though we
can never hear again the clairon tones . of his
voice, yet we do-ourselves honor, and do but
our duty to 'our distinguished dead, in rendering
homage to his memory, and in making suitable
arrangements for the interment of bis mortal
remains. . I move, therefore, Mr. Chairman, the

The 'Whiskey Ring of the West
Baocock Immensely Rich.
- Babcock is now immensely rich and has
an elegant cottage at Long Brauch, bes
sides tbe house which he owns here, but
when he came to Washingtob as Grant's
protege and Private Secretary, he was not
worth a dollar outside of his pay! as au
officer in the army. There is no doubt
but that he was deeply implicated in the
immense frauds of the Board of Public
Works, which were. investigated last year
by-Congress, and no one has forgotten
how the majority of the Cougreesioual
Committee of Inquiry, who were Repub
licans, - endeavored without success to
whitewash the whole affair. 'Indeed, trails
were discovered leading directly j to the
doors of the White House, but the? Demo
cratic minority were powerleds, and mat-
Ufa could not be pushed to ibeeud. Now
things are different, and the people of tbe
country can have the satisfaction of seeing
those who plunder them punished.
Grant is determined to save Bibcock if
possible, and do pains will be spired to
gain the desired eud. It is hard i to tell
why Babcnck is such a favorite with Mrs.
Grant, and the whole Graut family; he is
not at ail d is Unguis bed in appearance,
and a stranger would beyond a doubt re
gard him as an ordinary and common
looking man. - !
Babcock, however, is a favorite of tot-
tone, lie is a colonel oi engiueers iu tne
regular army; private secretary to tbe
President; commissioner of public grounds
and buildings; president of tbe Colombia
lymg-ip-asylum: engineerin-chief of the
Washington aQueduct. and architect of
the new State and Wat 'buildings. He
ia all this and more. lie has crown rich
in a miraculous way. His frieuds have
grown rich faster thin is compatible with
any theory ot Honesty, ana yet tne x-resi-
dent pretends to know nothing about it.
' . " t t
dbould any investigation bo called tor, ny
the House it will i)e entrnsted. to the
Committee on Wava ' and Means- it w
at present, should such a course be called
Testigation willjje. It is certain that tbe
Democrats will not attempt any interfer
ence that will embarass Secretary Bria
tow in the least; but they will rather lend
him all the assistance in their power. Tbe
committee will not be oTerpressd with
business daring the present session.
BtSINESS FAILURE IN BALTIMORE
Baltimore, Md., December 30. The
Sun of this morning says: "During the
past few days attachments have flowed
into the Courts of this city chiefly from
New York creditors against H. J. Hall
&r Co., styled in the directory as 'dry
goods and notion dealers,' at No. 6 North
Howard street. The name of Matthew
E. Hawley, of New York, appears in Ihe
directory aa the compauy. 11. J. Hall
had been doing business in Baltimore for
nearlv two vears. and the operations of
the house, were extensive. A. few .days
before Christmas Mr." Hall, the only mem
ber of the firm known in Baltimore, went
away, saying, it is alleged, that he in
tended to go to-New Yotk to arrange with
soma creditors who. were pressiugfor pay
ment. "About $4,800 worth of goods were
Lfound at No. 6 North Howard street,
which were removed at tbe instance of tbe
attaching creditors to Bennett's auction
rooms. Thus far attachments on claims
aggregating $10,000 Wve issued for New
York, Philadelphia, Boston, Providence
and . Baltimore creditors. Some- of tbe
bills of New York houses ran as high as
$4,000. The total amount of the; claims
as figured up by interested persons is up
ward of $90,000, distributed among a
large number of business houses In van

When tbfPresident visited Stl LouisJ
soon after, the indictment of his friend.
Gen. McDonald, a' statement was sent
over the country tbrough the ' Associated
Press,' intended td give him credit for the
sternest integrity in dealing with the
Whiskey Rinffi It was represented that
McDonald sent up his card,- and Grant
promptly returned for answer, ho "would
receive no public . officer who was indicted
for defrauding the Government."
McDonald subsequently - denied the
truibbftbe alleged incident, and intimated
that ft had been gotten up for political ef
fect. Bot the stoty had gone the rounds,
and the Republican papers produced it in
glowing terms as another proof of Grant's
Roman virtue. Even now it is held up as
an example worthy of imitation.
' V t - - : 1 ' t t - . . .
xi tne x'resiaent ever naa.a aisposition
to turn his back on these conspirators and
thieves, he seems saddonly to have chang
ed his mind; Babcock, who was the chief
stay of the, corrupt combination, and has
been indicted like his confederates." is now
at Washington engaged in preparing his
defence, with free access to every avenue
of official information, i He stands' re-
eisely where McDonald stood before trial,
ana is to be arraingedforasinjilaroffaoce.
How has be been treated I
So far from not beiner received because
of this criminal indlctmehtrBabcock has
been welcomed at tbe White House as if
nothing bad occurred ta cbaage his r rela
tious. He oceuptes bis desk there as usual,
and actually performs duty as - secretary,
while the place is osteusibjy held by his
former assistant and confederate. The
Cabinet, with the exception perhaps of
Mr. Bristow, treat him as a persecuted
person, and other high officials have ex
tended to htm a (degree of -civilitv and
deference which is best explained bv
the President's open sympathy and par
tiality. i ? ' s
How effective this Executive protection
may prove to be,! will be known in a few
weeks. It saved Harriqgtou from the
penitentiary when on trial for the safe
burglary. And it is intended to rescue
Babcock from the clutches of justice,
when the proofs of his guilt are overwhel
ming. There is more than friendship at
tbe bottom of this extraordinary interest
on behalf of tbe indicted secretary. Bab
cock holds secrets that make him danger
ous, and for that reason no power will be
spared to insure his acquilal. N. Y.
The New Year opens with a continues
tion of the mild weather which made
Christmas week so remarkable. An ex
animation of t Lie daily weather charts of
the signal office, which we saw- at WiU
mington, showed the remarkableperhaps
unprecedent fact -that for five successive
days during the past week, there was no
point in the United State?, east of the
Rocky. Mountain?, where tho murcury
stood as low as the frecziug:poiut. Daily
Joyce says that be is impatient for the'
society of Avery, McDonald and Bab
cock, and that if the Government attor

will.be badly ecorchud, the President uot
A youug woman of pekin, HI., was

Joint Stock Co-operative Farm
We are 1 ud to ay that considerable
interest has beeu excited by the articles
which have appeared iu the Rural Cau
olihian on tho subject of co-operative
farming. The viewt advanced appeal to
the practical common sense-of the planter
aud ihe business man. The only fear ex
pressed is that the agriculture classes are
so little accustomed to any combination
or concert of action', and so unfiled, by the
habits bred of their isolated, humdrum life,
that they will be unable to act together,
in the way proposed, for the common good
A few years ago, this (ear would have
been well- grounded, perhaps, but the
Grange has already done much to teach
the faimors thtir tine relations to each
other and to give them confidence in as
sociative actiou. They see clearly the
application of the principle to their own
business to farming Useif and are maty
of them, ready, we are convinced, to show
their faith by their works.
Aa there is at present no organization
of the elements required in such a combi
nation as we have indicated and one is
likely to wait for another 'to take the ius
itiativc, and tho work be thus indefinitely
delayed, we hereby offer, to become a
medium of communication between the
various parties who are:intereeted -in set

Both gentlemen realized an independent

hoping to'recruit it; but the trip proved
too 'severe for his enfeebled constitution,

CUT THIS OUT, (
It May Save Your Life, j
There" is no person living but what suffers
mor or less with Lung Disease, Coughs,
Colds ojr Consumption, yet some would die
rather than pay 75 cents for a bottle of med
icine that would cure them. Dr. A. -Bos-chee's
German Syrup has lately been intro
duced in this country from Germany, and
ts wonderous cure astonishes every one. that
try it. If you doubt what we say in print,
cut this out and take it to your Druggist,
Theo. F. Klottz, Salisbury. N. C, and get
a sample bottle for 10 cents and trv it. or a
regular size for 75 cents.
A Remedy that has made its Mark.
Success is the meed of excellence. The
truth of this has never been more forcibly
exemplified than by the triumphant career of
llostetter's Stomaco Bitters. No sooner did
the people di;coverthe genuine merits of that
aupreme invigorant and corrective than they
hastened to stamp it with the seal of popular
ity. The pres3 and medical profession speed
ily followed iu the wako of the public, and
emphatically endorsed it. Thus from the
very outset tho -success of the Bitters aa
remedy and preventive was an established
fact, and a degree of popularity which it ofteii
takes proprietary medicmes years to attain,
was achieved almost at a stride by the thei
now preparation. Since that time every sue
eessive year has witnessed fresh accessions to
the favor with which the Bitters were early
regarded, and the area of its popularity is no
longer confined to the United States, brft id
chides the British Provinces m North Amet
ica and the TTest Indies, South America
Mexico, portion? of Europe and Australia
That it is riot oul j a remedy for dyspepsia,
constirpatioa, biliousness, urinary and urierine
complaints, nervousness and debility, but
also a preventive of those maladies to which
air and. water, impregnated with miasma,
give birth,-has-been -nowhere so strongly evi
denced as in those regions wbere climatic
conditions unfavorable to health exist, and
where the Bitters have been Ing and con
stantly tested. To call this superb cordel a
remedy tuat has made its mark, cannot we
think be regarded as boasting, since tbero is
probably no proprietary remedy more widely
known, universally respected and emphatically
endorsed than these Bitters.
