Dangehocs. It has become almost a
universal habit with the country people
to leave their teams standing unhitched
oh the streets, thereby running a risk of
sustaining loss to themselves and injury
to pedestrians on our streets. There
were two team runaways last week re
sulting from this careless habit, in which
there were fortunately no bodily injuries
sustained by any one, but in both cases
the owners of the teams had their wagons
damagedjmore or less.

An aged and genial gentleman. Mr.
SauTl Raymond, of Tarrytown, N. Y., is
in the city, who ctfhie to see after the
grave of a son buried in the U. S. Ceme
tery ; caned to Iookover the files of this
paper of 1864-'65, with the object to as
certain the true condition of our commis
sarnrs and finances at that period. He
expressed himself as sat i fled that provis
ion were scarce, aud that we did j the
best we could in the -way of feeding and
caring for the Union prisoners that were
quartered upon us, and said that he fully
appreciated the then straitened condi
tion of the Confederacy
In spite of the unusually dry season
some of our farmers are sowing their
wheat and turning their stubble lands
is it not safest in the long run, to take
tho best chances offered than to be
thrown too lato in the fall and winter
with this work, as happened with a great
many last year, who either got their
wheat in too late to insure a good crop,
or else were deprived of the opportunity
to sow all the land they had laid out for
this purpose 1
The Centennial Celebration of ihe
victory at Yorktown turns out to be a
very grand occasion indeed, both as it
respects numbers attending and the
character of the ceremonies. 25,00OTroops
in their holiday dresses were in review :
banners yiug, brass bands clanging,
cannons' booming and -troops parading.
Aorth Carolina is said to be well repre"
seuted in the person of her distinguished
sons and soldiery. Gov. Jarvis and
ex-Gov. Vance and other of her notables
are there enoutrh to make her nnnifi re
membered and honored in the midst of
all the possible grandeur of the occasion.
Our town and county is represented by
the "Salisbury -Rifles". and the leaders of
one of the best bauds in tho countrv.
We refer tho reader to notices of this
occasion in other parts of this paper.

Some very rich gold ore has been brought
to this place by Mr. Saui'l. Harrison from
his Belle Mine in Moore County. He has
a large barrel of it aud each piece of ore

An Inspirating Scene Decorated Shipping
Gay Uniform andartial Strains
Laying the Coruer Stone.
Yorktown, Va., Oct. 18. The scene
on the river frout to-day wa&1nspiring.
Men of war,passenger steamers, boats and
pleasure crafts were profusely decorated
with flags and streamers. Salutes were
constantly being fired iu honor of arriv
ing dignitaries, aud the air was filled with
music by the numberless bands. These
with the gay uniforms of the templars
and military, and great crowds of people
who gathered to witness the display,
contributed to make a sceue of great in
terest. At fl o'clock Gov. Holliday and
his staff met iu Lafayette hall, which was
beautifully decorated, and welcomed the
Governors of other States aud other dis
tinguishetf?gue8ts. Gen. Hancock called
aud paid his respects, and an interchange
of pleasant greetings occupied the time
until the arrival of Presideut Arthur and
tho Freuch guests.
At 12:30 the masonic procession, un
der direction of Ki-Seuator Withers as
marshal, marched into the hall.
President Arthur, accompanied by
Secretaries Lincoln, Hunt and James.
was escorted to the stand amid the cheers
of the crowd.
,TIe ceremonies then opened with prajM
er by Rev. Dr. Nelson, a grand son of Govt
Nelson, who commanded the Virgiuia
militia at Yorktown. He thanked God for
the one hnndred years of blessings vouch- j
safed this country ; for Washington ; for
our allies and for our victory. He prayed
for peace among all nations and fraternal
concord among the sections of our own
country. At the conclusion of the prajer
the band played the star spangled ban
ner with arbitary accompaniments.
Gov. Holliday then delivered an ad
dress of welcome.
Senator Johnson, of Virginia, chairman
of the Congressional Commission, made a
lew appropriate remarks, concluding by
saying that the column now to be
erected was to commemorate not
only the victory of the colonies but
the part taken in that victory by the
French. The recognition aud acknowl
edgment of the aid given by France to
this country was a solemn duty left by
tne continentiai congress to its success
ors, aud now, after a lapse of one hundred
years, the congress of the thirty-eight
States aud fifty millions of people, is ful
filing that duty.
The corner-stone of the mouument was
then- laid with masonic honors by the
Grand Master of Virginia, Peyton Coles.
The trowel used was a historic one, and
a pattern made from Commodore Perry's
flagship Lawrence, and was nscd on a
similar occasion iu laying the corner
stotie of mounuients at Monmouth, New
Jersey, and of the Egyptain Obelisk in
Central Park, New York.
At the conclusion of these ceremonies,
the President and party and the foreign
guests returned to the war vessels ou the
The military continued to arrive until
late iu the evening.
