Gen. Mead, of the Fereral army, was

Garfield, the ball cutting the liver; but
be lived ten years and died of pneumonia.
There was a fearful storm at Asbeville

large amount of property , unroofiug and

A boy in Alexander county, aged 13,
was sent to a field for oats. He carried
a cord with him to bind the bundle, but
failing to return his dead body was found
suspended to a sapling. He had used the

been without cause, except to know how
A rather remarkable accident happen

at the same instant to get off, and the
strain of this sudden movement brought

to the .Governors of the several States, to

responded, warmly accepting the propo

The Spoils of Office.
" Mr. Hale, formerly editor of the well
remembered Fayetteville Observer, who
to a well balanced and observing mind,
may now be aid to have added the
stored wisdom af years of experience, but
who yet , writes with a clearness and
beauty of pec iliar grace, sens to . the
Charlotte Democrat the following :
I have hesitated whether. to write any
thing about the horrible event of last Sat
urday, notjbecf.usedo not feel, and feel,
profoundly, th violation: of I all personal
and public rig its involved, ;but because
and all the? world, will
know all about it before I could reach
thenv But on my way to church yester
day I was thinking and speaking of the
mania for office, growing j out of "the
spoils doctvin," as the prime cause of
the outrage; atad the minister, Rev. Dr.
Potter, in an admirable address on the
necessity of government-- family,' church,
and State govern men t advanced the
sam e idea, andj expressed the belief that
if we cannot eradicate this j abominable
and demoralizing doctrine that "to
the victors belong the spoils of office,"
the cwtry is doomed! I thought I fore
saw some of t e sad effect?, when, just
fifty jcars ago, the Fayettcville Observer
cut loose from the idol of the day, Presi
and was acting
because he had adopted
on this bad principle."-' It
required no small degree of moral cour
age to quit the party of the givat Idol,
whom I had helped to elevate, for the
prospect was tliat the Observer could not
exist in the midst of a people so devoted
to that idol. Ij have - ever since looked
back upon that period as the most eventful
one in my Editorial life. Not ouly was
it a decision to do what was riqht, but it
was the foundation of - reputation and
fortune. , The people agreed with me,
and sustained me ever after. I mention
this jis an encouragement to young men
never to flinch from the performance of
dutyfor fear of joss of poplarity or patron -age.
Yes, I believp that the dreadful deter
ioration in the kind of men who are of
late yenis put in office, and the conse
quent corruption, and fraud, and stealing,
lhave all resulted from this vile sjxils
doctrine, which justifies such villians as
this assassin in demanding office. Will it
ever come to an end ! Shall Weefcragain
have a party and man iu power who will
dure to discard it and allow all to remain
in office who faithfully discbarge their
duty ? I fear not. So deeply has it taken
root in the public. mind and:, heart, that
it would seem impossible to pluck it out.
But it must be done, or, as Dr. Potter
said, the country is doomed !
One word more.. Individually I never
asked for office and never would have it
when it could have ben had'withont the
asking. This may not seem wise by
many of tho present generation, but to
mo it is a matter of satisfaction in old
A GREAT XEW RAlt-KOAD.
A conversation, the other day, with
that accomplished gentleman Capt. Wm.
Cain, C. E., developed some facts so in
teresting in thejr nature, that we lay
them before our readers. The Tinsalia
Coal and Iron Company, a wealthy cor
poration which has extensive coal beds
near Bristol, Teunesscc, and of. which
Gen. J. D. Imboden, is Attorney and
Agent, is desirous of reaching aa outlet
on the Atlantic Coast for its enormous
products, and With that view has in pro
cess a thorough survey of aline of Rail
Road, extending from Cincinnati, Ohio,
through the Big Stone Gap of the Cum
berland Mouutaiiis, via Bristol and Eliza
bethtown, Tennessee, through the Blue
Ride at Cook's Gap, to Boone, in Watau
ga County, N. C., and thence by way of
Lenoir, Taylorsville and Statesville to
Salisbury, wheuce the line will probably
be extended to Wadesboro. The road
is now under construction from Big
Stone Gap to Bristol, where it will con
nect with several other lines, and a sur
veying party is now ou the Road from
the Gap to Cincinnati, and another from
Bristol to Elizabethtowu, and a third
party from Elizabethtowu in this direc
tion towards Salisbury, Wadesboro and
Wilmington. A perfectly feasible route
has been found through tho Cumberland
mountains at Big Stone Gap, and through
the Blue Ridge at Cooks Gap, and Capt.
Cain has made a horseback recounoisance
of the line from Lenoir to Salisbury, and
makes a highly; favorable report of its
Gen. Imbodeni we learn, is very much
impressed with the Salisbury route, and
will warmly 4irge its adoption" by thej
uoaru of Directors, and it will probably
be put under accurate survey within the
next moth. All this soumls almost too
good to be true, but it is a fact neverthe
The Tinsalia Coal & Iron Co., is abun
dantly able to dpall this.Nand needs the
outlet here indica;cd. We need not say
that this Road will meet with the hearty
encouragement of our people along the
whole line, and that so far as Rowan and
Stanly counties are concerned, they will
be willing to extend every moral and
material aid in iheir power to insure its
accomplishments! Such a Road would be
of incalculable advantage to North Caro
lina. It would open up to the world the
magnificent northwestern mountain sec
tion of North Carolina. It would make
a great thoroughfare from the Northwest
to the Atlantic; It Would build up Wil
mington, our own seaport. It would
pass through the richest mineral region
in the world, and by the cheap cokeNand
coal which it would lay down , at our
doors it would stop the destruction of
forests, and set North Carolina ablaze
with forges and furnaces and factories.
The Ticket. The-SherifT of the corra
ty, Mr. Krider, inj- issuing-his notice for
the election on the 4th of August says :
M An election will j be held at all the elec
tion precints of jBowan county by the
qualified voters of said county, on the
prohibition - of "The Manufacture and
Sale of Spirituouaj'aud Malt Liquors. All
those electors wh0 desire to vote for pro
hibition, shall vote a printed or written
ticket with tho Words 'For 'Prohibition,'
on it. Those opposed to prohibition
shall vote a printed or written ticket with
the words 'Against Prohibition,' on it."
It will be observed that this is an ex
tract from the 7thi section of the Prohibi
tiou Act, passed at the last session of the
Legislature. Tiiej election iu August is
not for the purpose of taking the seuse of
the electors on the Act referred to, but
on the question of Prohibition. Those,
therefore, who arejin favor of Prohibition,
but not pleased wjth the Act itself, need
not fear but that it will be amended and
made as perfect its human wisdom can
devise. Those opposed to Prohibition
per ee will of course vote "Against Pro

of Gratitude. The Secretary of State
furnishes the following, with a request
that it be given the widest possible cir
culation : 1-. K f '
"Washington, July 411 p. m.
To the Press :
On lK'half of the President and Mrs.
Garfield, I desire to make public acknowl
edgement of the vry numerous messages
of condolence and; affection which have
been received mice Saturday morning.
From almost every State in the Union,
from the South as bountifully as from the
North, and from countries beyond the
sea, have come messages of anxious in
quiry and tender sympathy in such num
bers that it has been found impossible to
answer them in detail. I therefore ask
the newpapers to express for the Presi

which they teel for! the devotion of their

this hour of heavy affliction.

Jefferson Davi!s, in a recent inter
view, relieved GeuL Jackson's memory of
that mischievous party maxim, "To the
victors belong the spoils," and confers the
authorship of it oU Mr. Marcy, who was
in the Senate at the time of Jackson's
administration. l must be gratifying to
Old Hickory's friends, yet living, to have
this stain wiped out, and all the more. as
we see the dreadful fruits of the wild
scramble for office bn the advent of every
new administration, which-wo have been
taught to .believe (joimneuced at the time
that this seutimit was first put in
to practical operation. The most dis
graceful ami the most dangerous practice
iu our system of govern meut is that of
removing official without cause to make
iuuui lor laiusans. mo oiuces ot ffov
ernment under this rule become great
corruption prizes and are relied on as a
reward for party services. . We concur
with Mr. Davi, jnnd the press generally,
suddenly awakened by the recent-attempt
on the President's life, that unless this
giant evil can be dethroned, and a wise
system inaugurated in its place, the fu
turo of our free system is shrouded iu
darkness. Let. the government return to
first principles ximd maxims in respect to
appointments, and when a place is to be
filled only require to know, "is the can
didate honest, jis he competent, is he
faithful." These are all that the public
service require.! It is a matter of no con
sequence how tlie man votes as between
parties; though! a meddling partisan office-holder,
who devotes his salary and
abuses his position to promote a party,
should not be tolerated. He should be
expelled for cauise. We cannot hope for
purity in elections until a thorough
changes accomplished this direction.
The Atlanta Cotton ExposmoN.-The
Disector General has issued a circular iu
respect to charges, as follows :
I have theile:tsure of announcing that
the financial success of this great inter
national enterprise is assured beyond a

have been made to its stock, by the lare
number of actu.il entries already made,
and by the certainty of an immense
throng of visitors. On my return from
an extensive trip through the North and
West, these facts were laid before the

I hare received ours of the4th iust and
thank you for the kind expressions it
contained. The evil influence to which you
refer as causing a bitterness to be felt to
wards Southern men, ft may fairly be ex
pected, will give way to the j sober seuse
of the people, if they shall, like yourscl
detect ja sordid motive for trhich stimu
lants are administered. I will not, like
the telegram you cite in regard to the
attempted assassination of the President,
say I am thankful the assassin was not
a Southern man, but 1 will say I regret
that he is an American. A j crime black
enough in itself has deeper die from the
"mercenary motive which seems to have
prompted it. I sincerely trust the Presi
dent may recover, and that the startling
event will arouse the people to consider
an action of remedy for a demoralization
which ja wild hunter after ojffiee is creat

fare, I am, very truly, yours,
The Storm Yesterday.
Six Persons Struck by Lightning in Spar
tanburg Damage to other Places.
Yesterday afternoon, about half-past
2 oclock, in advance of a refreshing rain
which visited the city, a high wind sud
denly swept through the Streets, raising
the duSt iu clouds, slamming house doors
aud break in 2 class out of wintlmva in
several places. The hurricane seemed to
be au advance courier of a more violent
storm -which it had preceded.
This1 impression was confirmed later in
the afternoon when news reached the city
over the wires of its devastation in other
Iu Spartanburg, S. C, the storm was
particularly severe, being accompanied
with vivid flashes of lightning, ' one of
which struck a dwelling in which were
five people, two of whoin a Mrs. Revan
and daughter, were killed iustanrly, and
the other three severely injured. Mr.
Revan who bore the relation of husband
and father of the two who were killed,
was in another portion of the town and
was also injured by the lightning.
At Johnstons station on the Charlotte,
Columbia Sc. Augusta Railroad, two box
cars were blown from the track.
At Chester several houses were unroof
ed and a new building, just erected by
.Mr. I . YY . Ahrcns, of this city, for a gen
tlemarrin that town, was entirely de
stroyed, it is understood.
At Morrow's Turnout, houses were un
roofed and chiuiueys altd trees were
blown ;down . .
The storm seems to have been very
general and to have prevailed over a
wide extent of territory. The damage
cannot-be estimated until the reports are

The proceedings of the recent cotton
seed crushers' convention, at Cincinnati,
developed some very important facts with
regard to the value of the meal prod act
as a fertilizer and as food for stock. For
example, Mr. Hamilton, of Shreveport,
La., said he found cotton seed meal
scarcely inferior to guano as a fertilizer
and invaluable as a food for! cattle. In
exchanging meal for seed one ton of the
former was given for two and a quarter
tons of the latter. Another member had
demonstrated, by actual experiment on a
farm in Connecticut, that the meal is the
best fertilizer ever nsed on tobacco lands,
trippling their productive capacity in
three years j and is superior to any other
cattle food. Again, Mr. Baber, of Selma,
claimed to have increased, by! the use of
cotton seed meal, the production on poor
lands of 18 bales to 145 bales. In fact,
there was unanimous 'testimony to the
value of the cottou meal and cake, not
only for feeding cattle,, but as a fertilizer,
In the quality of a feed stuff,! it is being
used in great Britian, Sweden, Norway
and to some extent in Russia.
