THE NEXT STATE CONVENTION,

A cnuon or tue Democratic party of the

thinks Salisbury probably the best point ;
for the holding otthe convention. "Char- :
lotte," the News saya, "though one of the
most attractive places in the whole State
for a State Convention, owin? to its fine
halls, and the renowned hospitality of its
citizeusia rather too far from the 'north
eastern section of the State." We hardly
think there is a more accessible place ill
the State than Charlotte. It is true that
we are upon the line between the two
Caroliuas, but our five railroads, extend
ing in every direction, render us more
easy, of access, we think, to the people of
the State generally, than any other
place in it.
Well ! And Charlotte wants the State
Convention to meet there also. By the
time Charlotte gets through with the
white and colored Conference, of the M.
E. Church, Baptist Convention, Doctors
Convention and all other conventions to
meet this year, she ought to be satisfied.
We would be glad to have the State
Convention meet here, aud insist that
this is the best place. . Charlotte hasn't
any Brass Bands to serenade ,the big

AnyiVEO at Last. It gives us much
pleasure to announce that W. H. Neave,
Esq., of Salisbury, Professor of Instru
mental music, arrived here on last Mon
day evening. He comes for the purpose
of giving instruction to our Band, .and
has already commenced operations, the
tirst lesson having been taken on Tues
day evening. He will give five lessons a
week for one month, 'and. then close up
with a public coucert for the benefit of
the Band, aud judging from his well
known ability as au instructor, we hazard
nothing in saying that the. concert wilt be
one of the most notable entertainments
our citizens will ever be favored with.
Mr. N. can play perfectly on" any and' all
kinds of Baud ihstrunvents, aud has a
peculiar aptness for imparting his knowl
edge to his pupils. He instructed the

their appreciation of his efforts, and of
their encouragement of the Baud by giv

HENDRICKS OX SILVER.

New Your, Feb'y: 2. Hon. Thos. A.
Hendricks has written a letter in reply to
Mr. Belmont's letter in relation to the
silver question, in which he says he thinks
that silver money should be restored. The
pledge of 18G9 of tho payment in coin,
and the assurance in the act of 1870, of
the payment in coin, at tho then standard
T'alue, would seem to authorize almost
to requireit. The compliance with a
contract cannot be a breach of the public
faith. Our country is a large producer of
silver. The quality of money is impor
tant to its value. "I think," says he,
"that when restored silver will approach
and perhaps reach" gold in value, but
should experience prove that it must re
main lielow gold becanse of its greater
production, Congress has ample powers
to provide against any evils which mar
follow." . '

5 a m. Tfie Metropolis sailed from Phila
delphia on the morning of the 2Uth of
January; bound for Para, Brazil, South
America, Captain Ankers. Total number
of passengers 2G0. About 1G0 were
drowned, and About 100 saved. The
steamer is a total wreck, and nothing is
left above water. There are no bodies
aboard. The wreck was caused by the
ship being unseaworthy. She sprang a
leak about 12 o'clock, midnight, and
stranded at 7 o'clock a m, January 31.
The only way of waving life was by run
ning ashore, as the vessel was in a sinkiug
condition. This is the statement of Lou
McQuillan, one of the saved.
8 a. m. The state of affairs this morn
ing is terrible. Dead bodies are lying
along the beech for a distance of two
miles. They are all being placed in pro
per places, back from the beach, and the
living are beiug cared for. About one
third of those found are dead. Two sa
loon women and their husbands are known
to be dead. Eight out of the fourteen
foremeu are also known to be dead.
Washington, Feb'y 1. The signal ser
vice reports that the Metropolis, Captain
J. II. Ankers, left Philadelphia at 9 a. m.
29th of January, and changed pilots at
11 p m at the breakwater. At 8:30 p 111
the vessel started a heavy leak in the
rudder case. Finding he could not gain
ou the leak with the pumps the captain
concluded to lighteirthe steamer by throw-
iug overboard coal, aud to bear away for

heavy sea washed over the vessel, carry
ing away the smoke-stack, boats, engine

in a large quantity of water below. The
ship was completely unmanageable. Fin
ding that nothing could be done far the
vessel the captain attempted to reach
the beach, in order" to save what lives
could be saved. At G o'clock she made
the beach. At that time the tires went
out and the engines stopped. Thecaptain
set all head sail to drive her up the beach.
The sea was very violent. At 4 o'clock
he passed the word for all hands to pro
vide themselves with life preservers.
6:45 a. m. The ship struck the beach
at 11a. m. A man on horseback made
his appearance on the beach, waving his
hat and promising assistance. At 12:30
p. m. the life saviug service made an ap
pearance, but came poorly provided to
save life. All. the assistance it could ren
der was to get them out of-the surf as
they came ashore. Had they come to the
rescue of the wreck during the forenoon,
nearly every oue could have been saved.
At 5 p m she broke up completely, throw
ing them all iuto the sea.

and the Hellenese has actually broken

this, for a Turkish man-of-war has been
ordered to Athens to take off the minis

been raised in its full extent."
London, Feb 4. The Loudon corres
pondent of the Manchester Guardian,
telegraphing to that paper last night, says:
"Thedocument siguedat Adrianople tends
to increase public distrust, and if Russia
were not pledged to refer certaiu condi
tions to a conference, public sentiment
would take a more decided shape than dis
trust. The Liberals have not heretofore
been hearty or unanimous iu supporting
Mr. Forster's amendments to the gover
ments motion for the supplementary.
The signature of the armistice will per
haps not decrease the government's inn
jority but in any circumstances it will
probable exceed 100. The gorernment
may endeavor to counteract the effort of
the armistice by some announcement con
cerning the terms of the protocol. If thev
are ueemea unsaiisiactory, tne govern -ment
will not hesitate to say so. The
feeling to-night is far from hopeful."
Sr. Pf.tekshi im;, Feb. 4. The Czar,
yesterday, after the inspection, addressed
the troops as follows: "I congratulate
yon upon the armistice, the satisfactory
conditions of which are due to to our
brave troops who proved that for them
nothing is impossible of accomplishment.
We are still, however, far from the end,
and you must continue to hold yourselves
prepared until we obtain a durable peace
worthy of Russia."
Public opinion here, and even more at
Moscow, regards the projected conference
with disfavor. Some of the papers speak
of the conference as a mere device of the
European powers to deprive Russia of all
she gained after so heavy an expenditure
of blood and treasure, without themselves
spending a farthing or losing a man.
