Aimiid BiDEbam, of Iredell county,
died ott Nov; th et the age of 90 jreara.
In 1828 the deceased, with Fhilo White,
was editor of the Western Carolinian, from
which (ranched the Salisbury Watchman.
The jtboVe is not correct. Mr. Bing
ham's name was Lemuel, and it Was in
1823, not 1828, that he and Mr. White
edited the Western Carolinian. The
Watchman sprang from the excite
ment of the times, and was started in
opposition to the Western Carolinian
in 1832r during the great nullification
excitement.' The late Hon, Barton
JCrmge i was then editor of the Western
. Cara'inian. and was exerting a power
ful influence in Western North Caro
' lint in favor of the nullification move
ment. The "Union party" of the day
nought to counteract this, and the late
Hamilton C. Jones, Esq., issued the
first number of. the Watchman in op
position to nullification on the 28th of
July, 1882. Mr. Bingham was at that
time editor of the Yadkin and Catawba
Journal ; or, it may be. had but recent

that fruui the effects of the injuries

Marriage Bells Battle Wilson,
The event in Morgan ton society for
the season was the marriage of Mr. H.
B. Battle, of Raleigh, to Miss Alice M.
Wilson, the lovely and accomplished
daughter of Maj. Jas. W. Wilson.
Dr. K. P. Battle, Jr., F. B. Dancy,

Miss Nannie Erwin, preceded 1 the
couple, as they appeared in the brilliant

ThA' ceremony was brief but very
impressive, and was witnessed by a
large gathering of the friends of both
parties from all parts of the State, who
tendered hearty congratulations. The
presents were numerous, costlv,. and
beautiful. The happy pair, after the
congratulations were over, repaired to
the depot, where a special car was in
waiting for them and party. Mr.

enjoyable social occasion.
A Business Court
The Iredell juror must be a business

Solicitor picked up a bill of indictment
and casually examined it, called the
witnesses, tried the case, and the jury

Nothing influences the action of a per

the impression made upon him during his

streets, good bridges, shade trees that are
kept well trimmed, moderns homes sur
rounded by freshly painted fences with
neat front yards, do more to influence the
settlement of immigrants, such as will be
a lasting benefit to the entire community
and such as will identify themselves as
citizens of the town, than anything that
can be done. The City Fathers of Win

" Washington Letter.
From Our Regular Cor re pendent.
Washington, Nov. 20, 1885.
Everything in Washington is bustle
and preparation for Congress and the so
cial season. Senators and Representa
tives are dropping into the city, and the
crowds on Pennsylvania avenue are
larger every day. Men talk politics, the
work of the coming season, the probable
attitude of the Senate to the President,
the Speakership, and the leadership of
the Republican minority in the House,
which will be decided soon in caucus.
Ladies talk dinners, receptions, and toil
ets. They are under the influence of
milliners and modistes, in preparation for
the part they are to take in society's win
The season promises to be a brilliant
one. A prosperous business season al
ways brings a large number of visitors to
Washington. The improvement in busi
ness this Jail will be felt in that way here.
Thenlong session of Congress always
brings a larger erowd than a short one.
The members of the new Administra
tion will do their parts socially. The two
New York members of the Cabinet will
lead as entertainers. They both have
large fortunes and are supported by wives
who are fond of society. Secretary Bay
ard lives in a rather modest house, and
says his means will not permit his taking
a larger one. He has a large family
which is still dependent upon him.
The President will do socially what et
iquette requires of him, nothing more.
The regular official dinners will be given
a.t tne unite House, out u is niceiy ne
will adhere to his resolution of accepting
no invitations except perhaps to Cabinet
dinners. Cabinet officers have had a cus
tom of dining each other once a week.
Presidents have been in the habit of at
tending these dinners.
The question which will come most
promptly before Congress is undoubtedly
that of silver. The probable discussion
of this question has brought out a great
many books on the subject and the Con
gressmen wno nave come to tne city,
have been hunting up literature relating
to finaucial questions. The distinguished
ex-editor of the World, Manton Marble,
has sent to each member of Congress
during the present week, a pamphlet en
titled "The Great Monetary Powers," ac
companied by his card and compliments.
He now advocates the suspension of the
coinage of silver ih the United States.
The interest in the silver question quite
overshadows just now that of the tariff.
A few days ago the tariff and anti
tariff champions, Representative Morri
son ana ex-speaker Kandall, met by
chance in the office of the First Assistant
Postmaster General. The late antago
nists on the tariff question shook hands
cordially, inquired about each other's
health, and chatted in a way that refuted
the allegation of personal ill-feeling be
Mr. Randall spent three hours with the
President one evening this week, and
they talked about changing the rules of
the Lower House, so as to permit more
legislation auring the coming session.
The President favors as much legislation
as can possibly be crowded into the ses
sion. He indorses the plan to divide the
appropriation bills among the commit
tees. He has said the tariff could very
well go over until next session if neces
sary, and that there were more important
matters to look after. He also favors ac
tion on the silver question, and a good
deal of his message will be given to that
The situation in which the President
will find himself in reference to the Sen
ate on he meeting of Congress will be
peculiar. The majority of the Senators
are opposed to him in politics. Some
Democratic Senators are opposed to the
course he has pursued in regard to ap
pointments. Some of these have declared
their intention of opposing him on the
ground that his nominations are not
Democratic in the sense that they should
be, and further as a means of forcing him
to make morechanges than he seems in
clined to make. To the Senate thus con
stituted, the President will have to sub
mit a variety of nominations. Its attitude
towards him will be watched with great
North Carolina at the London Exposition.
From the Asheville Citizen.
Asheville, N. C, Nov. 20th, '85.
Having been appointed by His Excel
lency Gov. Scales to represent the State
of North Carolina in the exhibition in
London, England, in May 1886, I wish to
make the best showing possible of the re
sources of this highly favored State, so as
not only to sell tracts of land, but to
bring in capital to develope the various
branches of industry now lay ing dormant.
In order to accomplish this, I will require
the co-operation of the inhabitants
throughout the length and breadth of the
State, and" would request them to send
mespecimens of minerals, timber, cereals,
tobacco, fruit, vegetables, clays, fertili
zers, native building stone, mineral wa
ters from ! the different thermal springs ;
also ornithological and - entomological
specimensiin a word everything to at
tract the attention of people seeking in
vestments in lands, and the general
industries which the State so largely
offers. As it is my intention to represent
properties seeking capital for their de
velopment, and to attract for that pur
pose both capital, and skilled labor, in
order to do this it would be necessary to
exhibit representative specimens rrom
different actual merited properties throug
out the various counties of the State,
which would bear inspection, and inves
tigation, and fully realize the representa
tions made by me. It is further my
intention to make a specialty to divert
the tide of emigration to this favored
State by making known the numerous
advantages it has to offer in comparison
with many other States and Territories
in climate, resources, &c.; also to open
up direct communication for the sale of
tobacco in the European markets, and
thereby prevent Other States from deriv
ing credit and profits from our crnm.
1 1 would also call attention to specimens
nivtmn with vim imn m.i vuf.w. u
nection with the iron manufacturers and
other industries, to all of whom I intend
to make known the numerous advantages
to be obtained by investing in this coun
try. This I can do outside of my official
capacity, not only in London, but in the
principal capitals of Europe. In my
official capacity as commissioner I will
be brought hi contact with representative
men from alii parts of the world, thereby
affording me dual advantages to promote
the interest of the State at large.
In order to accomplish the ends aimed
at, it will be necessary to have the hearty
co-operation (of the entire population of
the State, headed by the Board of Com
missioners of each county, who ought in
their public Capacity to make an appro
priation for defraying expenses attending
such an exhibit as not only will this State,
but the entire nation will feel proud of;
this would be as necessary, as the State
has not set aside any appropriation for

. P. 8. As I have to make application
for necessary space in the Khi hit ion
Building, it would be requisite that par
ties desiring exhibits should communicate
with me at AsbefWe as soon as possible.
All articles for exhibition should be with
me by or before 15th February 1886, as I
will have to classify, Catalogue, label and
pack them, so as to 'have them in New
York by 1st Jof March 1886.
All specimens will be returned to the
owners.' . I
A Prison Incident.
; Cor. Wll. Star.
Mr. Editor:': Under the spur of lonesome
ness tonight I give you a little prison inci
dent, than which few morepathetic occur
red under mjy eye during the war. The
scene was Johnson's Island. The writer
and Col. Baxter Smith, of Tennessee, were
notified one evening by the head of the
Masonic fraternity of prisoners, that it
was our tur to sit up with a sick brother
that night iri the hospital. Neither of us
knew him, but my only recollection after
twenty years' interval is that he was Cap
tain of the cavalry, and from the western
part of this State. On reporting for duty,
we found him delirious and apparently at
the point of death. Asking the surgeon
in charge (one of our own) what was the
matter with him, he replied, "Nothing, or
at least what you would call nothing, and
yet he is bound to die." Nostalgia, or
homesickness, is his malady." To my ex
pression of surprise that a full grown
man would succumb to what at best
seemed but a sickly fancy bis reply was,
"It is instead a terrible disease, and as
in his case attacks only the bravest,
gentlest and most loving. One of his
regimental friends told me yesterday that
he was the bravest man he ever saw, and
the kindest hearted withal."
It was agreed that we should watch by
turns. During my turn he started to
speak, after a long silence. Leaning over
him, his face was wreathed with the
sweetest smile I have ever seen on a human
countenance. He was in communion with
her for whom he was dying. To his dis
tempered fancy she was with him (per
haps in some occult way she was) and
after weeks and months of misery, he
was in the seventh heaven of happiness.
"Oh, my own darling," he whispered,
"I knew you would come. God bless
you, my precious." They were his last
words, as Lremembcr to have been told,
for the next day I too was a prisoner to
my bed, and had it not been for my wife
and little one in far off home, would have
envied him who required no further
The news had penetrated beyond the
prison bars, that our lines had broken at
Spottslyvania, and for the first time the
realization of possible failure had entered
my mind. The effect produced was not
neuralgia, for I was not unacquainted
with that before. It was the incipient
stage of life's supremest sorrow,
which culminated ere long, under the
mythic apple tree at Appomattox. Yes,
homesickness, or hope deferred, or the
most cherished aspiration of a life, laid in
ashes, may kill, and ofttimes does. G.
