while the notes of Hail to the Chief,
which was performed by Ihe band,1 yet
lingered in the air. for. some moments
there were cheers and huzzahs, which
drowned the voice of the ""speaker, .but
unlet was at lencth restored, and the irov-
ernor commenced his remarks by alluding
to tlie fact that wn He tlie celebration was
began in a spirit of frolic, the people were
actually engaged iu carrying out the . Di
vine command of Mpeace-uiakius." Tor
himself he regarded the war as over, and
: there was now nothing to be done but to
i enforce the constitution and the laws made
I In pursuance of that instrument that; he
- regarded the JUuion and the constitution
as synouymous and convertible terras,
- and that if both were regarded as they
- ought to be, there was no reason why the
J people North and South should not live
like brothers. He knew the people of
- North Carolina, as well as any man could
know them, and the people of no section
of the United States were more anxious
to see . Harmony and reconcilation than
they. North Carolinians, in the late war
bad displayed a courage and endurance
which were a credit to any people and
. while they might cherish memories of that
struggle, he knew them too well to be
lieve that they still cherish prejudices.
He related a pleasaut incident, told him
by Gen. Gordon, of a North Carolina sold
ier who went into a com -field, which hap
pened to lie between tlie lines of the two
great armies, to get some roasting ears.
When haifed by the Federal picket he
told theyankee not to shoot as he was only
"getting some corn for supper." He was
accordingly allowed to get as much as he
desired, and departed. Just before day
-an attack was ordered, and as the sergeut
marched through, the cornfield, he was
again hailed by the same picket, to whom
he made the same reply as on the even
ing before, when in a moment his consciV
ence pricked him. and ha . -y11m1
out at the top of his voice, "I say ya
we ain't after.no corn this morninir. 1
We re gving to shell the woods: get out of
the way," This story was related to show
tlie honesty and sincerity of the masses of
the people, and that the extension of Hie
ngut hand of fellowship by the people of
iu' own, io nieir viccors was maue in sincerity.-
; He closed by saying that other
peaaers were co follow liim and that he
had always been willing to divide "from
a ahUUng up to a fight" with his friends.
j r u .-;U ' Hox. d. o. fowle,
Who has not inaptly been styled the silver
longueu orator of the State, was the next
speaker. He commenced by saying that
v.ew, lunugion, uavie, Ashe and
other revolutionary patriots, in their eter
nal abode, if they still took an interest in
wordly affairs, might well rejoice at, the
vauwuam wnica marked the events of
ine ceieutatiou. He dwelt at length on
love of country and of home, and showed
", people of the State were celebra
ted for both. Iu alluding to the late war
he said that the North Carolina heart wn.
not in sympathy with the movement of
secessiou, uutu it was announced that
there would boa fight, and , her people
were called on to take sides. When her
position had been takeu, she was not a

will have. The soldiers of both sections

cure a lasting peace for our j unhappy
country. Few, very few, soldiers can be

said, ten years ago, in a memorial speech
at Raleigh, "Thank God, there are flow
ers enough in this laud of ours, and hearts
gentle enough, and hearts good enough,
to scatter, them over both the blue and
the gray." That was a grand and noble
sentiment uttered ten years ago, ahead of
pubiicsentiment at that time, but thank

noble senator : then, meet now a cordial

of our glorious country. j

grand success. Thousands ' came to the
feast where patriotism a n d love of

one of those occasions that every man

say it was good to lie there. Wc do pot
doubt that it has done, and will do much
good in bringing about a-moro fraternal
feeling among the old soldiers who fought
for their respective sides some eighteen
years ago. r
As it was in no sense political, we shall
not express' those thoughts which natiir
ally arise as to the contrast it presents to
the rancorous animosity which the North
era Republicans are now indulging in to
wards the South. While we arc here in
clined to peace and are seeking even by
uuusual methods to foster kindly senti

some of our fellow-citizeus at the North
apparently grow mora .hostile as the days
of actual hostility aud1 bloodshed recede
mto the remote past. Half a generation
has now rolled away, and yet tho slogan
ou the Republican side is still war and
they yet teach undying hostility to the

North against a solid South recalls tlie
story of a great Geuerai. This General

Gen. Gordon's corps was one evening
encamped within one hundred yards of

was in front, as usual, with nothing for

break of day. The ofljeer in command,
having heard of the sergeant's adventure,
gave orders that tho .men should sav to

The brigade was deployed into the corn

The Speeches at Salisbvry male by re
presentative men of North Carolina sol
diers who had fought and bled for the
"Lost Cause ;" statesmen who had held
to the-theory of secession nutil they saw
;it was df no avail, and, who wish to stand
by the Constitution as it now exists ; til
lers of the soil, who contrast tho country
as it now stands with other countries and
glory iij its advaiitages-aH these were
there and rendered their testimony.
There was not a. sentiment expressed
that a cavilling Radical (we will not use
the term Republican' in this sense) politi
cian could have taken "exception to and
converted-into political capital. We will
not allude to the speeches !of those. who
grace Congressional halls or executive
mansions. Plain Rufus Barringcr un
doubtedly made the speech of the day. It
was not couched in courtly language; it
was tot replete with classical allusions ;
it lacked perhaps the florid sentences and
rounded periods that mark the graceful
speaker, but the pith of the whole matter
was there. The days of 18G1 are gone,
but they havojeft their sorrowful remem
brances. A uew departure had to be taken
at the close of the war; and our people
have buckled on their knapsacks for the
forward' journey. We may bo vilified
and denounced for. the sins of the few, but
it will not impede the inarch. We have
scanned the future, and by our-labor
must we make our position.- Mr. Barriu

some of course, who have a natural bias
the other way. They are undoubted hon
est in their opinions. But it is through
such ; gatherings as this at Salisbuay
that sentiment must be corrected.
Put the slandering, politicians, eager
for place and profit at any price, out of
the way, t and the different sections will
assimilate ; there wilt be no trouble on
sectional scores. Feed them aud flatter
them, and the internecine hatred will
continue. As Major Halleck said. 'It is
time for those who did tho fighting to
step to the front."
THURSDAY, OCTOBER SO, 1879.
The editor of the Asbeville (N. C.)
Jour Hal recently made a visit to the Na
tional Cemetery in this place, .and in.hia
account thereof, baa fallcn.intq some er
rors which it is proper should be corrected,
especially in regard to tbe nnmber of
soldiers buried here, and the cause of
their deah. He lays "UJQQ diediroin

Ve do not know the editor of tbe Jour-
ual, nor is it necessary . that we should.
We know his statement is untrue in the
! r 1 : . 1 . t , 1
common acceptation of there terms "died
from starvation." We do not know in what
sense be desires to be understood : Perhaps
he would employ the same terms to ac
count for the larger mortality of Confed
erate prisoners in Federal prisons larger
in proportion to the number. He ought
to know that this is a well established
fact, Und that there is no good reason to
belie vo that prisoners on either side
"died, of starvation."
At this Cemetery there are 11,700 pris
oners buried iu trenches. The names,
otnpany, .regiment date -and; cause of
death of 3,504 are known. They' died of
various diseases, some from wounds and
a very few were shot by. the guards. Theto
is no record ofauy dying of starvation. 425
of the silent tenants of these grounds were
brought here from other places, of whom
94 are known, making a total of 12,126,
including the body of the late Superin-
tendaut, Capt. W. H.' Richardson.
Most persons reading tho JvurnaVs ac-
conntofhow thesffice at this place is
kept by the presetfi Superintendent, Mr.
Burke, would Uj obliged ; to regard it as
captious, and needlessly fault-finding, if
they knew the facts as we know them.
Tho ; offico and grounds are kept in as
good condition as the t meanii, appropria
ted will allow; and when . we say this, we
must not be understood aa iutiuiatiug
that tliey are not well kept. We looked
carefully; in the officj for tbe : JournaVs
cobwebs, but could not see them. There
are some very small cracks in the plaster

who could do no better. .The Register is
