Written for the Boston Commercial Btilletla.
At the American Exhibtion in the vast
building of the New England Manufac
turers' and Mechanic' Institute there is
more to be seen that awakens interest
and excites admiration than at either
ef the two fairs which have been held
there. The executive managers of the
Institute began with lofty aims and am-
oiuoh.. i ueir one enort was a success
their second surpassed ti, and. $ieii pres-
ent marks a new and splendid step in ad-
ranee. It does not derogate in the least
from the great merit and excellence of the
thonsands of exhibits arranged iu the
grand hall and brUad galleries to say that
the first place soughLby the majority of
adult visitors is tlie space occupied by
the State of North Carolina, for the gen-
tlemen who have that exhibit iu charge
have sent their iuvitatious to all parte of
New England asking her farmers and ar-
tisans to pay them a visit, and the re-

synopsis of what may be seeu there will

THE USEFUL MINERALS
of the State iuclude mica, chromic iron,
corundum, manganese, kaolin, fire clay,
agulmatolite, whetstone, millstone, graph
ite, limestone, marble, talc, serpentine,
ban te, marls, asbestos, soapstoiie, pyrite
and several kinds of building stones.
Liberal specimens of all these are display
ed iu the State's exhibit, in addition to
t,,e baMr and oufi,, metal8 and minerals
mere are precious stones shown in case.,

ruby, sapphire and zircon. Among the '
building stones there are several peculiar i
specimens, such as the leopardite, from
its odd tracings and spots resembling a
leopard's skin ; also granite with large
and irregular green spots. These fanci
ful work i ngs are probably due to segrega
tion of manganese, and tlie stone when
polished is very handsome. There is
nothing like it North. The marbles aud
sandstones shown are susceptible of a
high polish. The marble industry iu the
State is not yet developed, and the specU
mens shown at the fair were detached
from the surface veins.
THE IRON ORES
of North Carolina are widely distiibuted
over the State, and include all tlie princi
pal kinds magnetite, hematite, liuiouite
ami smeiite, anu most ot tueir varieties
aud modifications. As iu all other
branches of industry, this branch is im
perfectly conducted aud only a few mines
are in first class rnuuing order. Some
sixty lots are shown in the exhibit. One
of the most remarkable and persistent
rauges of iron ore iu the State crosses the
county of Guilford, some ten miles north
west of Greensboro. The ore is granular
magnetic, and is everywhere titan if erous.
The length of the outcrop, air line, is
l en ty -eight miles. Another ore belt,
running parallel with it at a distance of
three miles from it, known as the Shaw
outcrop. There are apparently ','00,000
tons of ore above water level, in this par
ticular section, iu the ore six loot bed.
The ore locally called "powder ore" is
unique, being a very pulveriileut mass
carrying a notable per cent, of oxide of
manganese, and assays 98.92 per cent,
pure iron, and is exhibited in considera-
ble quantities. The mine is located ouc-
half mile went of Wooteu's Station, on
t,ie Air-Line Railroad.
THE GOLD EXHIBITS.
The gold of North Carolina belongs to
j four different geological positions, and is
generally more or less alloyed with sil
. ver varying from pure gold on one side
to pure silver on the other. According
to the specimens shown in the exhibit,
the auriferous ore of the State in a gener
al way embraces nearly one-half of the
State, bat the productive area contains
about 13,000 square miles. Nearly every
mod of occurrence of gold known to the
geeiegjai and mining engineer finds here
aD illustrative example, and the same is

that from Stanly, Montgomery, Ruther-
ford and Caldwell counties being free

obtained in the form of sulphurate. In
golue of the counties of the State from
half a dozen to thirty-three mines are
worked more or less. The average assay
of gold iu the State is about $10 value
per ton. In some instances as much as
$00 a ton has been assayed. Rowan

been carried on here for years, aud one
wine in Mitchel county yields a tou of

nam woous on exinoition suggests a
source of immense wealth. These woods
have laid the foundation for extensive
manufactures, such as wagons aud car-
nages, shuttles aud bobbins, plates and
dishes of gum wood, while the most val-
uable cabinet woods are shipped abroad
The high finish or polish which many of
the woods are susceptible of attracts the
attention of manufacturers of wood.
Mauy of these woods are unknown iu
New England. Much of the cottou goods
mauufac tured are for local or home con
sumption, The kiuds on exhibition equal
the best made anywhere, so far as texture
and finish are concerned. The cottou
mills in the State now number 64, aud
operate 2,858 looms aud 156,030 spindles.
The fisheries of the State are the most,
important along the Southern Atlantic
coast, employing over $500,000 capital,
and yielding a total value of products to
the fisherman of 50,000 annually. Spe
cimens of North Carolina food fish are
now being arranged iu the exhibit.

Mary was kneeling down by the
side of her bed, her eyes closed and
her hands clasped. If her mother
had seen her she would have thought
she was praying, and she would have
been pleased that she knelt so long.
But she was only "saying her pray
ers." not pray i He. Her mind was
full of the young people down in the
parlor, whose shouts of merriment
came sounding up the Stairs every
few minute", and of the happy eve
ning she had had. They were all
older than herself, and though her
mother had allowed her to sit
up an hour later than usual, the

hurrying into bed. "J ve tried my

a good many years that I went to
sleep without saying it."

At that lime there was no church

Southern Methodist began a church
40x60 feet, weatherboarded, floored
aud covered it aud found themselves
unable to complete it. And as the
land and a large part of the lumber
was given on condition that they fin

secure no title. It was offered to the
Baptist w ho declined and afterwards
to the Presbyterians. In the mean

ist of St. John's Presbytery in Orange
county, began regular monthly preacli-

house and a proper deed. Our church
extension committee has voted $125 to
assist iu finishing the building which
was last week received, ihusallare
encouraged and the way is clear to
finish and dedicate within three or

give nothing when uncertain as to its

Pathetic Incidents at I seisin.
In describing some of the scenes
and incidents attending the excava
tion of the dead and living at Ischia,
a correspondent says: A boy of
twelve had just been found, not hurt,
but wandering among the ruins,
looking for the spot where his home
had been. I asked him whom he had
lost. "They're all gone," lie said,
"father and mother and everybody."
Two young girls who had been buried
for three days, said when they were
dug out: "Ah, you do not know
what it is to be buried in the dark
for ten hours." They had no idea of
the real time which had elapsed.
One of the most touching incidents
which came under my knowledge
was that of a father distractedly urg
ing on the work of the excavators on
the spot where he had lost his little
son. He as calling the child's
name iu hoarse and trembling tones,
when suddenly a little voice was
heard from amid the broken masonry:
