Mining: In CuIjiutus County.
A valuable gold mine has recently been
opened within the corporation limits of
the town of Concord, en the Reed proper
ty . It is being worked by two colored
men in a primitive way, they have taken
out about 260 d wt. of gold, by milling a
tew bushels of the ore on a little one-
horse Chill ian mill. There are three Well
defined veins of high grade brown quartz
ore, extending about three quarters of a
mile on the property, making one I of
the finest prospects ever discovered in
in this county. The mine is now control
led by Dr. H. R. Rogers and Mr. Wat. A.
Smith, of Concord, who propose to organ
ize a com pan y with capital to develop
and work the ores in a systematic war.

Another busy week the rush for
grand openiug Wednesday, the 5th, has
subsided, and while the Fair is open to
visitors, yet it is really not ready to re
ceivc them. The North Carolina exhibit
was the ouly display that was in shape
and as a consequence, was visited by the
throng. Those who were fortunate enough
to possess tickets went to the auditorium
aud heard the speeches. Gov. Jarvis'
remarks were received with great ap
plause, and even enthusiastically.
After the addresses, a great many visi
tors came to the office of the North Caro
lina Department and extending their
hands, offered congratulations, saying:
"We have heard your Governor, and we
like him ; he is a plain, honest talker,
and speaks to the point. New England
But the chief feature of the exhibition
is the contribution from North Carolina,
and because the State has sent so much

Many citizens of Salisbury remember
the spotted rock taken from "Cooleemee,"
the residence of Mr. Frank Brown, iu
Davie county, as being a stone of pecu
liar formation and beauty. As anticipat
ed, it has created a sensatioa among sci
entific men and stone workers. Among
the differing opinions, Prof. W. . Hid
den says that "
litic dolerite it is plainly a metamor
phosed rock of some description or other.
The nodules which make up nine-tenths
of the rock are composed of dark green
dogite (?) having a nucleus of either
quartz or feldspar. These nodules are
about half an inch iu diameter and are
very regular in size and distribution."
This theory may, or may not be correct,
and as opinions are given, we shall reeord
them. The stone takes a beautiful, mir
ror-like polish, whieh brings out the deep

that these objects are best effected by the

"And when the purpose of the Demo

is accomplished, ample field for applies
tion of the doctrine of light burdens for
necessaries and heavier for luxuries, will
be found in the readjustment ef a tariff
which now taxes diamonds 10 per cent
and bankets 100."
The resolution referred to reads
Eesolved, That we are in favor of the
entire and immediate abolition of the en
tire revenue system with its attendant
corruptions, and that we denounce the
present tariff laws as grossly unequal,
unjust and vicious. We favor such re
vision ot tne tarin as will produce a
revenue sufficient for the economical sup
port ef the government, with such inci
dental protection as will give to domestic
manufactcres a fair competition with
those of foreign production. That there
should be an immediate repeal of all Uncs
imposing a direct tax for the support of
the government of the United States, but if
it should prove impracticable to abolish
the internal revenue system with all its
attendant demoralization, frand and cor
ruption, then we ogre upon our Senators
and Representatives iu Congress the
importance of so an. ending the law that

than $500,000 shall be elected by the
people of the localities to which they are
The last canvass was made squarely
for the repeal of the system and the
wiping out of the entire direct tax.
And this together with the words
italicised by us would seem to sustain
the view taken by the able editor of the
Fayettevill Observer. Probably he is
quite right. But however that tie, there
is one thougut in this connection that
ought not to be lost sight of. It is this;
That whether the convention favored
this immediate and entire repeal ef the
revenue system because of its attendant
corruptions, or because it is ah anomaly

yet the convention never for a moment
dreamed of saying that the Democracy
proposed to tax necessaries rather than
luxuries. That qnestien was not in

internal revenue system.

The following "words of soberness and
truth" are taken from that excellent, old
Virginia journal the Alexandria Gazette
"Go West," was the key-note ot Horace
Greely. "Go West" is still the cry with
many. Some people in Virginia think
and talk about western fortunes as if all
they had to do to come into posses
sion of a fortune would be to emigrate
it appears to be a spha-ru- aud settle West, and the fortune would
fall into their lap like a ripe apple. But
what a mistake. Western fortunes are
not made in a day. Money dou't grow
on trees in the western States and Terri
tories. It is the experience of every man
who has goue West from Virginia that if
he had put forth the same indomitable
energy, pluct and perseverance, and had
been willing to make the same sacrifices
in his native State that he has been com
pelled to make out West, his condition?
every way, would be greatly improved.
Aud, then, think of the dangers of the
West. Cyclones every few weeks, in
creasing iu frequency and destructive
power; uobody's life nobody s property-
is safe. Let no Vuiriuian think about
going West, but wake up to a proper con
ception, due estimate and appreciation of
the almost imperial possibilities of our
grand old commonwealth. Let Virgin
ians go to work aud develop her resources
and establish their homes amid the ad
vantages of good society, good schools,
good roads, orthodox churches, grand
water-ways, and profitable prices for the
products of the sou. It is
meiancnoiiy spectacle to witness in our
cities, towns aud villages the crowds of
idlers lounging about the streets and
stores, with nothing to do because they
don't want to do anything. This helping
John Nobody to do nothing, with comma
uistic envy of the sober aud industrious
is the bane of the world. It is heaven's
order for man to earn his bread by the
sweat of his brow. Work is bread and
meat. Man needs bread, but there are
too many who are willing to eat the bread
of other men s labor and industry and
frugality. Onr advice to all is to qo to
work: do something, and you will be
useful, honorable and happy.

September returns to the Department of
Agriculture indicate a lower condition of
corn than in August in every section of
the country and in nearly every State.
The only gains in the west are in M,ssoo

improvement is indicated. Minnesota
stands as in Angiut, Arkansas makes a
gain of one point aud Georgia aud Ala
baina remain as in August, but all the
other cotton States show a heavy decline.
Hie figures are also much reduced foi

lus States show changes as follows
Ohio a reduction trom o'J to p, Michigan
63 to 60, Indiana 95 to 85, Illinois 86 to
& Iowa 85 to 80. The increase in Mis
souri is from od to 84, Kansas W to 101,
Nebraska 84 to 87. The decliae iu New
York is from 77 to 70, and in Pennsylva
nia 99 to 89. '1 he general average of the
condition on the hrst of September was
84. a decrease of five points during the
last mouth. The cause of this reduction,
so nearly universal, is the drought which
ia reported from every State of the At
lantic coast and Gulf coast and Ohio val
ley and beyond the Mississippi to the
crest of the divide between that river and
Missouri. Between the Ohio river and
the lakes the distribution of rain has
been uueqnal--in a few places in excess
while a deficiency is generally reported.
The crop is uear.'y everywhere late, re
quiring ono or two weeks' longer season

Where Kansas aud Missouri seed was

crop is still later, causing much appre

than that of some of the famous western

The Ohio agents place the injury in
that State at 20 per cent.; the Indiana
ageuts estimate the loss at from 10 to 20
per cent, in the northern section, aad 5
per cent, in the middle belt. The loss is
heavy in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
There is also some injury in New York
aud Pennsylvania. While tire, damage
cannot yet be clearly determined, it is
certain that the frosts have already re
duced the geueral average below 80,
though much of the heaviest corn of the
west is beyond injury. The condition of
the wheat when harvested, as reported in
these returns, averages 83, which indi
cates the product to be 17 per cent, less
than the vield of last year, or a loss of
80,000,000 bushels. The crop of oats
