THE REMEDY.'

Let it repeal the $o0y000 subsidy, passed :
is session by a minority vote iu each
Lei
et luiieu pass an act like those pre-
vailing in Georgia, Tennessee and other
States to farni out tho 'convicts to the
highest bidder.
The result of these three bills Vould
be to save $300,000 of the taxes auuually.
The AVir has heretofore given the fig
ures. As man 3" or more miles of railroad
would be built by them annually than-
under the present expensive system.
The bond-holders of the Western North
Caroliua Railroad would then go ahead
aud build their own laud to make their
bonds good; - -
Add to this $300,000 the $93,000 that
it is estimated would be saved by the
Salaries aud Fees bill, the Deaf aud
Dumb ami the Penitentiary bills and the
$5,000 already; saved in reducing the
price of public printing, and the nett
saving will be $400,000 annually, being
over 25 cent ou the $100.
By disregarding railroad' mortgage
boud-holders ami their agents and ofticial
lobbying, this j real Retrenchment and
Reform is easy.j

themselves an eternal record of honorable

CONSISTENCY.
There are those who assert that to pay
$100,000 of interest ou a compromise ef
fected of $27,000,000 of honest State debt
for $4,000,000 will throw the State back
into It.ulit'.il haiids.
Over $3,500,000 of the debt to lie com
promised were issued to ijnild tho Wes
tern North Caroliua Railroad. Yet with
rare comsisteucy these same legislators
insist that over $200,000 of taxation
must be annually levied now t build the
Western North Carolina Railroad for the
benefit of its mortgage bond-holders.
Be just ami honest before you are gen
erous has no place in their rules of
conduct. It would seem that the honor
of the State is lesn with them than the
interest of the railroad companies. It
ould M'eni that the chief reason for the.
existence of population iu North Carolina
is that it may be taxed for subsidies to
railroad corporations. It would seem
that their objection to settling the State
ebt is really1 because they fear that
enough nia not be left in the treasury

GOD HEARD HIM.
A story of faith and chairty from Rus
sia : Not long since a government func
tionary died, iu St, Petersburg in utter
destitution leaving without friends or rela
tives two small ftiildrcn, ,oue of whom
was a boy about seven years old.' Alone,
ni6neylek;Tdodless wltir-1iisTiK Stilt
crying for bread, hot wrote ou a piece of
paper as a last resort the petition:
'Please, God, send me three copecks to
buy my little sister a roll." This he carried
to the nearest church to drop it iuto an
alms box and start it on its way to heaven.
A passing4riest, seeing him try to put
the paper iu the box, took it and read it,
where-upon he carried the children to his
house, fed them and clothed them. Tha next
Sunday he preached a sermon on charity,
iu which he alluded to the incident. The
collection that followed amounted to
ucarly $1,000. i

By the death of her father, James
V., she became a queen before she was
week old. She was. educated, in
France, and brought up in the Roman
Catholic religion. When nineteen
years old she returned to Scotland,
leayiug France with great regret, aud
feeling no love for her native country.
John Knox, the "great Scotch Re
former," was thirty seven years older,
than Maryl . Jte was educated at plas
gOW University, became an enthusias
tic Protestant, and preached with tre
mendous power. " f '
Only a few days after Mary's arri
val in Scotland, she sent for Knox to
come to tlie palace, where they had a
long talk in her brother's presence.
She accused him of attempting to de
stroy her authority over her subjects,
and using magical arts to carry out
his purpose. Hut so completely did
his eloquent defence overpower her
that she sunk into a silent stnnor.
from which she was aroused by tlie
dinner bell, putting an end to the con
versation.
Not long after, Mary gave a splen
did ball iu honor of the success of a
brutal massacre in France. Oil the
following Sunday, Knox preached a
sermon denouncing the atrocity and
the festivities. Mary was told that
'he had spoken in a manner calculat
ed to bring her under the hatred and
contempt of her subjects.' She sent
for him to come to the palace, frhere
he received him, surrounded by her
counselors and maids of honor, aud
administered a long rebuke.
Knox listened quietly, and then re
peated the whole of what he had said
in the pulpit. For. the only time iu
her life, Mary was compelled to listen

GORDON AND BARLOW.
Their First Meeting at Gettysburg
and their Second at a iWashingtoo
Dinnerparty.
( . ' ' j From a Waaaangton Letter
You may not be aware that it was
Gen. Gordon's command which struck
the flank of the Eleventh Corpse on
the afternoon of the first day at Get
tysburgnd after a short but despe
rate conflict broke its Hue and swept
it from: the field. In that fight Gen.
Barlow, of New York, commander of
the First Division, fell dangerously
and it was thought mortally wound
ed. He Was shot directlv ihrmifrh tho
body. 44Two men attempted to bear
him through the shower of lead from
field, but one was instantly killed, and
Gen. Barlow magnanimously said to
the other: "You can do me no good;
save your self if you can." Gordon's
brigade of Georgians, in its wild
charge, swept over him, and he was
found by Gen. Gordon himself, lying
with upturned face in the hot July
sun, nearly paralyzed and apparently
dying. Gen. Gordon dismounted from
his horse, gave him a drink of water
from his canteen, and inquired of Gen.
Barlow his name and wishes. Gen.
Barlow said: "I shall probably live
but a short time. Please take Trom
my breast pocket the packet of my
wife's letters aud read one of them to
me," which was done. He then asked
that the others be torn up, as he did
not wish them to fall into other hands.
This Gen. Gordon then did, and then
asked, "can I do anything else for you,
Geueral?" 44 Yes," replied Gen. Bar
low, earnestly, 44my wife is behind our
army ; can you send a message through
the lines?" "Certainly I will," said
Gordon, and lie did. Then directing
Gen. Barlow to be borne to the shade
of a tree at the rear, he rode on with
his command. The wife received the
message and came harmlessly through
both lines of battle and found her hus
band, who eventually recovered.
Since Gen. Gordon s election to the
United States Senate both he and
Gen. Barlow were invited to a dinner
party in Washington and occupied
opposite seats at the table. After in
troductions Gen Gordon said : "Gen.
Barlow, are you related to the officer
of your name who was killed at Get
tysburg?" "I am the man," said Bar
low ; "are you related to the Gordon
who is supposed to have killed me?"
"I am the man," said Gen. Gordon.
The hearty greeting which followed
the toUching story, as related to the
interested guests of Gen. Barlow, and
the thrilling effect upon the.company,
can better be imagined than described.
A Duel is a Ball Room. Two
vounj; men, Samuel Toinlinson and
George McGreiror, were present at a
ball at Cedar Hill. In the ball room
were collected young ladies aud gen
tlemen' of the best society. Among
the dancers was Miss Burdett, who
was engaged to marry Tomlinson.
Both Tomlinson and McGregor clai m-
ed Miss Burdett for the next dance,
aud a quarrel arose, but McGregor
triumphantly led-the lady out on the
flor. Torulinson drew a pocket knife
and attacked his rival as he and the
girl were swinging corners. McGre
gor also drew his knife and a terrible
fight "ensued. Both contestants were
badly stabbed. Miss Burdett fainted.

ours, and will set up an occidental
