Every part of
thia well-planned pro
gramme was beautifully executed. The
procession made a street pagantry of rare
attraction. Stalling at the south-eastern
end of Salem, it traversed the entire length
of the main street running through both
towns. The: side walks on either side
were packed with people. The crowd in
attendance on this occasion-was variously
estimated at from 12,000 to 20,000, em
bracing large "delegations from 10 differ
ent counties, and many from Virginia and
other distant parts. The marshals had
little trouble to keep order, nearly all ob'
serving the requirements of the day with
out com pulsion. There was no drunkeu-
ness, no disorder or confusion, no fighting
or rowdyisni ot any kind, and not an ac

little anxiety or excitement among Deui

the fact that there is the greatest confi

the party to go amiss iu making, its nejxt
Gubernatorial nomination that it can

has chauged. Hie niodt conservative

the end has practically been reached: thev

good, and that the : vantage ground now
occupied by the party before the country

of welcome by Mr. Ewurt, of !Heudersou-

Charlotte, after which the vast crowd
was introduced to long aud heavily laden
tables, from which all ate to their hearts'
content of as fine a dinner as Conkl be set
iu North Carolina. Then came the "feast
of reason" by the best - speaking it has
been my fortune to hear iu years. First,
Gov. Jarvia was presented by Geii. Cliug-
nian in an mteix-sting and well delivered
speech!. The Governor's speech was
shorty but nevertheless interesting and to
the point welcoming the distinguished
straugers frum a distance to our State,
and asking their co-operation iu the com -
f-letiou of the great railroad route from
Charleston to Cincinnati. Iu concluding
he introduced Gov. Simpson, of South
Carolina, wlfo made us an eloquent and
sensible speech of some 30 minutes'
length, showiug the great interest the
whole Country, from Ohio to South Car
olina j had in the completion of this great
thoroughfare, aud closel with this elo
queu sentence, In my mind's eye I can
in the no distant future see the Iron
House leaving Charleston in i the early
morn and before the dew had dryed from
his mane he leaps the Allegtianies, and
ere the night fall he bathes his fetlocks
in the waters of the Ohio." Then came
Ex-Gbv. Senter, of Tennessee who told
us tbat hi borne was less than a hundred
miles distant from that point, but in or;
der to be present he had had to travel a
distance of 600 miles. He was deeply
concerned iu the work of the road and
promised that when the cars reached the
Tennessee line, a distance jtf some 60
miles, that he would insure us the com
pletion of the route through Kentucky to
the Ohio River. After this sensible aud
well timed talk, came the great speech of
the day by North Carol ina's greatest ora
tor, Daniel G. Fowle, of Raleigh. Before
he hadj spoken twenty words i yon could
see the crowd rising aud pressing to
wards the stand, aud before teu minutes
had elapsed there was not iu that large
audience an individual whose attention
was nojt riveted npon the rloqjuent speak
eif. Wjiaf shall Isayof thatsoulstirriug,
patriotic speech t To attempt to give
any correct idea of it would do 'him such
injustice that I shall not make the at
tempt. He spoke of our great govern -nient,
our great State and our great peo
ple in such burning words of eloquence
that the shouts and tears were simulta
neously brought from every listeuer. He
told u ot the interest he felt in the inter
nal improvement schemes of! every sec
tion of, the State, from Cherokee to Cur-rituckJ-that
his whole soul! had been
wrapped up in them iu the past, aud for
the future it should be the dcaiest and
most earnest work of his life to encoiir
nge and aid iu their completion ; that he
had been the friend and open advocate of
internal improvement when such matters
were unpopular in North Carolina. He
spoke Of the different; lines that pointed
from tlie broad Atlantic to the mountains,
aud especially the great Yadkin Valley
route, which was equal to our great Wes
tern North Carolina Railroad route, aud
would pen out one of the finest sections
iu the world to commerce and travel.
Hhv reference to the brave and noble peo
ple of the South who 'had aud were with
standing so mauy adversities for the sake
of peace and their love of law and con
stitutional government, was grand be
yond description how our brave soldiers
had shed their blood forTree government,
and how much honor should be paid to
their sacred ashes, on that the natal day
of free government, the principles of
which they laid down their lives to save,
aud how the fair daughteis of the South
should 1st lew tlowersjover their sacred
resting places. When he had concluded
a shout went np for Fowle which showed
he had charmed the ears and warmed to
ineltitigj nigh tlie hearts of every listener.
A gentleman asked us as the Judge left
the stand, what Governor was that that
had julst spoken, and when told that he
was Juuge Fowle, not" a Governor, he
said, Well, if he iano(a Governor he
ought to be, for die Jias. tho bigest soul
and is the finest speaker that ever spoke
io the State." So thought I but I must
n'urrvoh to others. Col. Tomans, Gen.
Lieach aud Ex-Gov. J3ouham then made
inost" excellent speeches showiug South
Caruili's great sympathy iu the enter
priseV f iThey were'followed by Col. Duu
can, President of tho road, aud Col. Fab.
Biisbee, of Raleigh, both of whom, altbo'
the suh kv'as'Tdstlsltikiug, held the crowd
to the ivej-y last. Ko such day. has been
witnessed iii" our mountains since the
war, and I feel'tretf assured that the peo
ple were so greatly aroused that tbe line

Cruz bring advices from the City of Mexico
to theSQth of June. On the 26th a part o
the crew of the. Mexican war steamer Lib-

and seized the steamer while the command

the officers of the Vera Craz garrison at

of some discontented persons. Nine of the
relwls were killed. The steamer Labertad
went to sea. The war stcamei Independent
cia and other Ktenmers had goie in pursuit
and she will doubtless be overtaken. Ac

mastered the situation, but since the revolt
of the garrison a reign of terror has pre
vailed there. All the Vera Cr iz merchants
are hostile to the government in conse

The constitutionality of lairs prohibi
ting the sale ot liquors within certain
counties or localities and discriminating
in tuvor ox sellers of liquor manufactured
by themselves, was tested in the case of
the State vs. Joyner. The Supreme Court
decides that the Legislature is clearly
competent to pass such laws.
Another decision of the Supreme Court
is this : After the charter of a (corporation
has expired by its own limitation or other
wise, and no suit is brought against it
within three years thereafter j for the ap
pointment of a receiver, it ceases to be
liable for its debts and the subsidiary
liability of its stockholders also ceases.
