of Salisbury, N. C.
Although a native of this town, and a
niemberof a once numerous aud highly
respected family, she was almost un
known to the present inhabitants. She
was the daughter of the late William aud
Mary Hampton, and sister to Mrs. Mout
fortS. McKcnzte, of this county, aud of
the late Mrs. John C. Palmer, of Raleigh.
She was married to Col. White, of New
-York, in the y.ar 1822, with whom she
resided hero until about the year 1834,
wheu they removed to Raleigh, N. C.
Mrs. White has not. since then, been an
Inhabitant of Salisbury ; but has made oc
casional visits to her family connections
And friends,; many of whom still reside in
the comity. Her last visit in company
with Mr. White was made in the Spring
of the present year, and she improved that
occasion to visit as many of her relatives
and friends as her age and strength would
permit. They returned to their home in
Whitesboro, X. Y., about the 1st of June.
Mrs. White's health commenced failing in
the latter part of the summer; aud with
variable prospects, running through two
or three months, it grew worse as time
wore on, until exhausted nature fell asleep
! Mrs. White was one of the excellent of
the earth. At au early period, she connect -.ed
herself with the Presbyterian church
in this place, aud her life here, in that rela
tion, was characterized by the virtues and
graces of the true and earnest Christian
, Subsequenty, while living iu Racine, Wis
consin, she was virtually driven from the
church of her early choice by the aboli
tion fanaticism which prevailed amonj: the
Presbyterians of that city. She found
rest in the conservatism of the Episcopal
church, in which connection she coutiuu-
fed to the end of her life Blessed with a
vigorous intellect, aud a true southern na
ture, few surpassed her in discermeut, or
in the nice observance of all those deli
cate amenities of life which contribute so
' largely to human happiness,
But it was not the purpose of the writer
to do more than give i brief notice of this
highly esteemed aud honored lady, the
incidents of whose life, in connection with
her distinguished and honored husband,
would make a yoiumn of surpassing iu
terest. Her life was a blessing to others,

his annual message, of which the follow
ing is a coudeused report ;
ABSTRACT OF THE PRESIDENT S MESSAGE.
Washington. Dec. 3. The President
congratulates tlie country that it has been
blessed with health,-peace and abundant
harvests, ami the increasing prospects of
the early return to gradual prosixmry.

were most iu harmony with the constitu
tion and genius of our neonle. and best
adapted under all circumstances to attain
the end in view. The benificieut results
prove that Uiesc .efforts are not now re
garded as mere experiments, and should
sustain an d encourage us in our efforts on
the silver question. The President holds
the ground that both silver and gold
ought to be utilized in the currency of the

He does not, there-
fore favorauy legislation that would force

ceive iu payment ot what is due them any
.... 1 J ... . .'
silver currenev worth less tlian par iu
gold. The President declares his be
lief in the good policy ot using both pre-
cious metals, but he states his opposition
to anv proposition that Congress sua!
exercise the power given it by the con
stitution to coin money and regulate the
valuelhereof. The President is iu favor
ot making silver a liberal subsidiarv coin
with a legal tender limit, somewhat great
er than at present, but is not in favor ot
making it an unlimited legal tender. In
treating of civil service Teform, the Pres
ident's message repeats in substance the
the opinions expressed in his iuaugura
address. 1 liere is not mucli prominence
given to the subject. I lie condition o
attairs on the luo uramie irontier, as
shown by official reports, received by the
administratidn, is briefly described, aud
the considerations which led to the order
to the commanders of the Uuited ' States
troops to cross the river when in full pur
suit of raiders and punish them onMexi
can soil, are recited. While the 1 'resident
recognizes the delicacy of the position
i , i , .
assumed by tne government oy uie issue
of tlrat order aud is not unmindful of the
tact that it mat lead to serious interna
tional complications, he defends it on the
ground that in no other Avay could the
lives and property of our citizens be pro
tected. He disclaims any intention or
desire to provoke hostilities with the
Mexicau republic. The affairs of the War
and Navy and Post Office Departments
are 'not treated of at much length in the
message. The recommendations of the
heads of the departments are generally
approved. The discontinuance of the use
of the armv for the purpose of upholding
local government in two . States of the
Union was no less a constitutional duty
and requirement under the circumstances
existing at the time than it was a much
needed measure for the restoration of
local self-government and the promotion
of national barmouy. The withdrawal of
troops from such 'employment was effect
ed deliberately, and with solicitous care
for the peace and good order ot society
and the protection of the property and
persons and every right of til classes of
citizens, lhe result that followed are
indeed encouraging, resulting iu concord,
friendship and patriotic attachment to the
Union. Ihe-co-operatum ot all classes,
races and sections is called upon to aid
in handing down the free institutions of
the government, unimpaired to the gener
ations that will succeed us. After a most
auxiouscareful examination, the Presi
dent declared himself as more thau ever
confirmed in the opinion that he express-
ed in his letter of acceptance, and in his
inaugural address, that the policy of re
sumption should le hurried by every
suitable means and that no legislation
that would retard or postpone it ought to
lie enacted. He believes that any waver
ing in purpose, or unsteadiness in meth
ods, instead of relieving the country from
any of the inconveniences attendant upon '
a return to specie payment, would only
aggravate and prolong the distress al
ready caused by irredeemable paper cur
rency aud end in serious disaster aud dis
honor. Tho mischief which would result
from any other policy .than the one which
will bring speedy resumption would not,
he believes, be cou fined to any class of
people, although he thinks the industrial
in as would suffer more. Secretary Sher
mau, iu his report, does not ask for auy
additional legislation to enable him to
carry the resumption act into effect, and
the President, in his message, agrees with
the Secretary of the Treasury. Congress
wasjavorable to resumption and ready
to assist the administration in bringing
about specie payment. Some addition
al laws would be needed. The Pres
ident agrees with the Secretary that
resumption can be effected under the pre
sent laws by January 1879, and also agrees
to flic wisdom of the "policy of not .asking
for further legislation. The . Secretary
also holds that the resumption act of 1875
does not require the cancellation and de
struction of the $300,000,000 of United
States notes which remain after the notes
of the greenback currenc has been re
duced to that point, and that it may be
left in-circulation torawnile, being always
exchangeable at the sub-treasuries for

Carrying 588 lbs. A Clerk in the em
ploy of one of the liberal advertising
houses in town, was helping a fellow from
Stanly county, Wednesday evening, to
load his wagon with salt from the ware
house. Salt, you know, is put up in bags
weighing 190 lbs The Stanly man soou
grew tired of carrying one sack at a time,
nronosed to carrv three at one time if
some one would put them on his shoulders.

The clerk immediately took liim up and
proceeded to pile tlte salt on his back

safely placed on his shoulders, he put his
hands on his knees and walked off to the
wagon, about 25 yards, at a 2.40 gait

Judge DicV Letter,
The letter of J ndge Dick, which we pub
lish to-day will attract general and care-
ul attention. Much complaint has ap
peared in the newspapers of this State
about the Judge and the officers of his
Court, and serious charges have been
made agaiust the Judge himself, aud we
are glad of the opportunity to give him a
hearing in his own defeiice, though we are
not sure the Judge thought his letter
would be published when he was writing
it. For one, we have never been able to
believe that Judge Dick was a corrupt or
bad man and we do not believe so now
but we have thought that he neglected to
wateh his officers close enough, or admin
ister necessary discipline over them ; but
that he was honest and meant right we
always believed. Charlotte Democrat.
The Necessitt of Advertising. A
case tried in our Superior Court this week
proves the necessity and justice of a law
requiring all property sold under execution
to be advertised iu some newspaper. The
planum claimed mat tne land sold was
not properly advertised and therefore sold
for less thau its cash value. The defeud-
ent asserted that the laud was advertised
by posting written notices at certain pub
lic places as the present, law requires.
Several Legislatures liave been asked to
pass a law requiring Sheriffs and all per
sons selling land under execution or or
ders of Court to advertise the same iu
some newspaper, but no such equitable
aud iust Act has yet been enacted. The
importance of it is seeu in the suit men
tioned, and iu various other ways aud in

THE DISTANCES OF THE PLANETS
FROM THE SUN.
Sir George Airy, the British Astrono
mer Royal, has recently published a re
port ou the telescopic observations of the
transit of Venus of 1874, made by the
English expeditions. Fending the ap
pearance of the deductions to be made
from the complete measuring of the pho
tographs, the result reached must be re
garded as provisional only. Tho mean
solace parallax determined is 8.7G4", and
this is one tenth ofa second less thau has
been given by the most reliable previous
investigations upou different principles.
From Professor Newcomb's calculations,
now adopted in most of our ephemerides
and based on observations of Mars, the
lunar equation of the earth, the parallac
tic inequality of the moon, the transit of
Venus of 1709, besides Foucault's experi
ments ou light, it appears that the mean
distance of the earth from the suu is 92,-
393,000 miles. According to Sir
rViry's determination this distance must
now be considered as increased to 93,
For the purposes of comparison
also to correct some errors whicn were
resent iu our recent article on "how our
worlds looks from the other -worlds,"'
which we translated from the French of
M. Flammarion, the well known astrono-
uier, we append t lie ionowing statement
of correct distances of the planets from
the sun. Mercury, average mean dis
tance, 35,31)2,000 miles; Venus, 00,134,-
000 miles; Earth, 93,32 1,000 miles ; Mars,
139,31 1,000 miles; Jupiter, 475,092,000
miles ; Saturn, 872,137,000 miles; Uran-
us, i,7o3,e.iy,umi nines ; and Aeptune,
2,745,998,000. As regards the fixed stars,
the distance of a Ccutauri, probably the
nearest, is about twenty billions of miles,
and light occupies about 3i years in trav
eling from that star to thejearth. Scientijic

' ' NATURE'S OWN REMEDY,
Entering at once into the blood, expelling all scrof
ulous, syphilitic, and rheumatic affections. Alone,
it it a searching alterative, but when combined with
Sarsaparilla, Yellow Dock, and other herbs, it form
Dr. Tutt's Sarsaparilla
and Queen's Delight,
The most powerful blood purifier known to medical
science for the cure of old ulcers, diseased joints, foul
discharges from the cars and nostrils, abscesses, skin
diseases, dropsy, kidney complaint, evil effects of
secret practices, disordered liver and spleen. Its use
strengthens the nervous system, imparts a fair com
plexion, and builds up the body with
HEALTHY, SOLID FLESH.
As an antidote to syphilitic poison it is strongly
recommended. Hundreds of cases of the worst type
have been radically cured by it. Being purely veg
etable its continued use will do no harm. The best
time to take it is during the summer and fall ; and
instead of debility, headache, fever and ague, you
will enjoy robust health. Sold by all druggists.

a trienct me nr-i inquiry is at
ways regarding his-health. Why.' because
health is of the first consideration; yet many
will sit in a cold, damp theatre, regardless of
weak lungs and hacking cough. Discard some
of the ephemeral pleasures of the day, such as
theatre-going, cigar-smoking, &c and invest
your small change in something that will be a
asting benefit. For instance, Coiissens' Com
pound Honev of Tar costs on! v iO cents, and
will cure your Cough, Cold, and 11 diseases of
the Throat and Lungs. Try it. For s;!e at
II. T. Trantham's Drug Store. 40:3m.
A Very Good Reason.
The reason why only one sample bottle of
Mf.rrei.'s Hkpatine for the Liver will be sold
to the same person, for ten cents, by our Drug
gist, Theo. F. Kluttz is because of the enormous
expense of importing the Hepatine into this
country ; but as there are fifty doses in the large
size bottles, it seems two cents per dose is cheap
enough afterall for a medicine that cures dys
peysia and liver complaint. "All who have net
had a sample bottle are entitled to one for ten
cents at Theo. F. Kluttz's Drug store. Three
doses relieves any case of dyspepsia, constipa
tion, indigestion or liver complaint, in the
world. Regular size bottles, fifty doses, 1 00.
