Frightened to Death.
We learn that Jas. Phillips, a youth of

h art's township in this county, came to
his death last Saturday night under novel
bat very unfortunate cirenmstances. He
and his mother are the only occupants of
their house, and jas the boy was known
to bo very "scary," some boys in the
neighborhood concluded to have some
fun, 60 they, went to the honse on the
night above named , and commencing
prowling around trying to open the
doors,&.c. The poor little fellow was so
badly frightened-that ho at once went
into violent spasms which were soon re
lieved by death. (The boy was ip per
fect health, having picked cotton all of
the day -previous and eaten a hearty
supper.' The tragic end of what was
only intended for; 9 little fun, has spread
a pall over the entire neighborhood.

I think it possible that you will know

many slates that have been made are
nothing more than guesses, and while the
sequel may show that some of the guesses
were Dronlietic. it cannot. prove that the
President did not keep his own counsel.
Nor has any progress beeu mado in dis-

It has been remarked that there are
fewer office seekers iu Washington than
is usual. Doubtless the fact that the
President is living iu a private house,
and is more difficult of access than if he
werojn the White House has somethiug
to do with keeping this class away. They,
however, will be hero in forece before the
first Monday in December. The prizes
of the patronage of the two houses of
Congress, to say nothing of a new Cabi-
uet, will be an irresistable attracton to
this rapacious crowd.
No doubt there will be some very im
portant official changes, and consequent
ly a number of mi dot importance. When
a high official like Asst. Postmaster Geu

little crafts are swallowed iu the vortex.
Many who hold office now must make
way for the friends of the new Cabinet
assemble on the first Monday of De-
I comber will be more largely composed of
new men than any that has assembled
for yt-ars. This means that manv old
members and Senators have lost their
influence iu Washington. The techuical
meaning, in Washington, of "influence"
is power to appoint friends or clients,
male or female, to clerkships. It is said a
new head will be placed over the public
printing office. ' This immense establish

Hancock; too, was much less severe in
his deportment than might have been ex
pected. He is evidently very amiable,
full of good nature and jollity, and com
bines a manly courtesy with fraukuess
in a high degree. He is rather more a

people wherever they congregated, seem
ed to be Hancock and Blaine men through
out. -These alone seemed particular
favorites, and tltfy were cheered lustily
on all occassions.
The President lmd curtailed his whiskers
which Uavorjceu given suuh prominence
in the cartoons and pictures of him. He
has a iuoro Jjleasing appearance than
when he wore them long. He looks quite
young, aud did not appear to feel himself
the President quite yet, He is possibly a
man of culture, hue his face aud features
do not indicate either study, thought or
considerable intellectual capacity. We
hazard but little, however, in saying that
he has will and determination. He has
a fine person, and natives an agreeable
impression. His short sppech of welcome,
of a dozen sentences, he had attempted to
commit to menjory, but had imperfectly
succeeded When speaking he would get
the wrong sentence first and would stop,
go back to the ouc he had omitted and
then proceed in good order just as a
school boy often does. Doubtless he was
nuused to public speakiug', and the nov
elty of tho situation, surrounded by ten
thousand 'people, ou such a grand occa
srou, embarrassed him.
Tho happiest man we saw was the
Freueh Minister Outrcy. The French
gnests. had bscii displeased at bein
transported on the same vessel with the
Germans, and they had stopped at Old
Point and taken cue of their own steamers
in cousequeuce. ihey made much clamor
at the incident, and Mr. Blaine, failing to
appease theiu could only end the matter
by requesting them to put their complaint
iu writing to be made the subject of diplo
matic coirespondence. That stopped the
unpleasantness. When the addresses
were being delivered the French sat to
the right of tiie Presidcut and Barou
Steuben and tiie Germans 0:1 the left.
At every com pi i men t, and there were
many paid to tuerrer.cn, u u trey woaiti
almost jro off into ecstacy. He was the
most delighted mortal our eyes ever rest
ed on, and kept himself bowing all the
while, at every mention of his country
men. He is a little chanky man, built
somewhat like Napoleon Bonaparte, and
was all covered with decorations aud
ornaments. Vv'hen he came to reply, iu
his broken English, the crowd made the
welkiu ring with -their cheers, and he
almost expired with happiness.
Rochambeau next read a brief response
in French, which the crowd cheered with
much good nature. He is a splendid spe-

Then Baron Steuben spoke his speech
in Uoisteu Luuch, - which not a uozeu
comprehended, but which was interrupt
ed by frequent bursts of applause by the
ten thousand who were present. We
hope they did not applaud every time at
the wrong place. He has the appearance
of a clean shaven hussar a man accus
tomed to a rugged life, but feeling him
self to be every inch a man. Space for
bids a description of other notables as
they appeared to us.
Gov. Winthrop's address was classical,
and will take rank with the finest of
American productions. If we are cor
rect, he became obnoxious in Massachu
setts for his sympathy with the South
during the war, He rauks with Choate,
Webster and such great men of tho past
whq wero his associates.
James Barron 'Hope, of Norfolk, de
livered thc .ode, and did it admirably,
having committed it thoroughly to memo
ry, notwithstanding its great length. All
were pleased with it.
Ou the day before, at the laying of the
corner stone, Pasf Grand plaster Graiu
ger, of Goldsboro, was oue of those offi
ciating Masons. We also saw Donald
Gov. Jarvis aud his staff presented a
fiue appearance and reflected credit ou
the State. Our military display was ex
cellent. Our troops compared favorably
with their brethren in arms from other
States, and the completeness of their ar-
ranirement. we learn, drew commenda
tions upon tho efficiency of Adjutant
General Johnstone Jones.

The grand review was a notable fea
tare of the occasion, there being cavalry,
light artillery, seamen and niaries as well
as infantry ip column. The premium for
the best drilled troops was, perhaps,
properly awarden to New Jersey, bat the
Connecticut line presented an equally fine
appearance, . There were some 10,000
troops on the ground, 15,000 oj 20,000
civilians, aud there were in the harbor
several thousand seamen, and men con
nected with the vessel. There were per
nans iio.000 iwople present, there was
ranch dust and the sau was generally hot,
but the" weather and surroundings were
us good as could have been expected. On
the whoio we consider-the celebration a
fair success. Nearly everybody we saw
were moderately pleased, and those who
were disappointed pet haps owe their dis
appointment to themselves. ! "
We met a great many pleasant people
from the North as well as from the South'.
We heard no word .that grated on oar ears.
Indeed, two of the plvasantest men we
were thrown with were Northern minis
ters. Oue of them was Bishop Harris, who

prayer, and who i3"a very intelligent and
learned man, full of avoirdupois and good
humor, and we surmise, truly devout
and conscientious. Amoug others present
was Mrs. Stonewall Jackson . and Miss
Julia Jackson, who received many ex
pressions of regard. Said Dr. Stone, of
Rhode Island, "Our people thiuk a great
deal of Stouewall Jacksou." Outrey, the
French minister, said to Mrs. Jackson in
broken English, laying his hand on his
lu;art as he spoke, "Ah, Madame, I wish
I could speak English to tell how grateful
the Freuch people are to Stonewall
Geu. Hancock took her hand between
his, and with courtliness spoke touching
ly of Gen. Jackson, and seated her by his
side during the entertainment at the re
ception. Others addressed her touching
ly relative to her great hnsband, and
tears came to some eyes while paying
her respectful homage.
We learn that the party of Engineers
who have been engaged for sometime
surveying the Statesvillo and Jefferson
Railroad, received orders on Monday last
to pull up stakes aud report at States
ville to Dr. Eames. They had reached
the vicinity of our town and have found
a possible route across the Brushy Mouh
taiu at Kilby's Gap; though, we' learn,
that the grading would be quite heavy
through the mountains! Many ' of our
people are afraid that this is the last of
the Statesvillo & Jefferson Railroad.
Others think it probable that they are
going to change their base aud commence
their hno sit Salisburv. If that be the
case, we think it a wise step on their
part. We have frequently heretofore by
editi;ii.ils and coi respondents articles,
tried to draw the attention of Railroad
ists to this very important and unoccu
p-.ea route iiir a rauroau, and wo have
wondert d why Geu. Imboden' Corpse of
Engineers have net surveved tliis direct
route from Bibto, Tennessee, to Salis
bury by way of Jefferson, WilksWo and
through the Hunting Creek G;;p of Brushy
Mountain direct to Salisbury. We learn
that a survey was mado some years age
up the North Fork of New Rirer and
across the Stone Mountain sit Cut Laurel
Gap and found remarkably practicable,
and-that the route to Bristol is a crood
ouc for a mountain country, though some
ay that a road from Abingdon to that
point in the mountains would be much
more easily constructed. From the Cut
Laurel Gap via Jefferson to Reddis River
Gap of the Blue Ridge there would be no
more than the usual obstsicles in the way
of building a road. Reddis River Gap is
the lowest ouc any where in the course
of that mountain through this State, and
there are spurs running from near that
Gap half way down to the Yadkin river,
eighteen miles distant. As a proof of the
lowness of the Gap, a person may stand
here m the ladkin Valley at Wilksboro
and see through the Gap nearly the whole
bodies of the Negro and Pheuix moun
tains ten miles beyond the ridire. After
leaving the upper valley of Reddis River,
the country is silmost level to the Yadkin
river hills near Wilkesboro. We learn
from persons well acquainted with the to
pography of the country, that from
Wilkesboro to Salisbury the direct roa
we have one of the easiest lines to buik
a railroad over to be found anywhere
and the distance would only be filty eight
or sixty miles. Hunting Creek heads ou
the north side of the Brushy mountains
aud runs entirely through the range of
mountains in a direct line to Salisbury
aud eighteen or twenty miles from Wilkes
boro you strike a level ridge, the water
shed between Hunting and Rocky Creeks
which extends to the South Yadkin 23 or
30 miles distaut, and intelligent persons
say. that would be the lightest grading
they had ever seen for a railroad, the
same distance. The South Yadkiu and
the creeks between that and Salisbury
three or four in number, would be to
bridge, but the grading no where would
be heavy. It seems to us, considering
the fact that this rosid would pass righ
through the iron and copper regions of
Ashe, would cut the Yadkin Valley at
one of the fiucst and most productive
parts of the State, would run through a
part, or the whole, of the rich valley o
Hunting Creek, aud the further fact that
this road would eventually form an im
portant link in the most direct route from
Wilmington and Charleston to the north
west, we say it seems to us, a wonder
why some company has uot seep its im
portance and occupied it before now
Mr. Best might fiud it cheaper than

"What, however in our mind created

skipping across the wire, which was about
100 feet above the audience, jwith the
grace and elegance of an ordinary uan-
seuse, she leisurely walked over it blind

Not satisfied uith proof of her lnterpuli

if she had been taking a constitutional in
