Cats Are Now the Rage.
In the fashionable and domestic cir
cle cats are supplanting the dogs that
have been pets so long. Cats of fine
breed and beauty of appearance are now j
in demand. Angora pussies of aristc-'
cratic mien and very nice tortoise-shell :
tabbies are bringing fancy prices, The .
objection made against feline pets by j
the beau monde for so long a time j
that they cannot be taken out and dis
played on the promenade has no long
er any weight, for it does not appear
to be the proper caper to appear in pub
lic accompanied by any pet animal.
The ight of grand dames dragging
their pugs and greyhounds by ribbon
harness into the dry goods stores, and
of pretty women hugging shaggy
poodles and upholstered; carriages, is as
rare today as it was once common. The
little brass circlet with its myrisidrof
silver bells that former! v shone resplen-

The day L done, and the darkness.
Falls on the wings of Night.
As a feather is wafted downward
From an eagle in his flight.
I sec the light of a village
Gleam thaough the rain and the mist,
And a feeling of sadness comes o'er me
That my soul cannot resist
A feeling of sadness and longing,
That is not akin to pain,
And resembles Rorrow only
And the mist resembles' rain.
Come, read to me some poem,
Some simple and heartfelt lay,
That shall soothe this restless feeling,
And banish the thoughts of day.
Nut from the grand old-masters,
Not from the bards sublime,
Whose distant footsteps echo
Through the corridors of Time;
For like strains of martial music,
Their mighty thoughts suggest
Life's endless toil and endeavor;
An. I tu-ntpht i long for rest.
Read from some humbler poet.
Whose songs gashed froin his heart
As showers from the clouds of summer
Or tears from the eyelids start;
Who, through long days of labor,
And nights devoid of ease,
Still heard in his soul the music
Of w onderful melodies.
Such songs have the power to quiet
The restless pulse of care.
And couie like the benediction
That follows after prayer.
Then read from the treasured volume
The poem of thy choice,
And lend to the rhyme of the poet
The beauty of thy voice.
And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares that infest the day
&hall fold their tents, Hkc the Arabs,
And as silently steal away.

EDITOR GRADY ON UTHE NEW SOUTH.'
The First Southerner at the Dinner of
the. Neir England Society Thrills His
Hearers and Carries Off the Honors
What lie Said.
The speech of Henry Grady, of the
Jjtkmfa Constitution, delivered at the
dinner of the New England Society in
New York is pronounced to be in many
respects the greatest address of the
year. He said:
Mr. President and Gextlemex:
Let me express to you my appreciation
of the kindness by which I am permit
ted to address yon. I make this abrupt
acknowledgement advisedly, for 1 felt
that if, when 1 raised my provincial
voice in this ancient and august pres
ence, I could find courage for no more
then the opening sentence, it would be
well if, in that sentence, I had met in
a rough sense my obligation as a guest
and had perished, so to speak, with
courtesy on my lips and grace in my
heart. Laughter. Permit me through
your kindness to catch (&y. second wind,
let me say that I appreciate the signifi
cance of being the Hrst Southerner to
speak at this board, which bears the
substuifee, if it surpasses the semblance,
of original"" New England hospitality
applause and honors a sentiment
that in turn honors you, but in which
my personality is lost, and the compli
ment to people made plain. Laughter.
I bespeak the utmost stretch of your
UI beg that you will bringryour full
faith in American fairness add frank

The next morning he read on the bot

37ears old he took unto himself a wife,
who was then turning the page 140

Long and continued laughter. He wtts
naturally puzzled at this. He read it

friends, this is the first time I ever met
with this in the 13ible, but I aJfiteept it
as evidence of the assertion that we are
tearfully and wonderfully made. Im

to hold such faith tonight I could pro
ceed cheerfully to the task 1 otherwise
approach with a sense of consecration.
PURITAN AND CAVALIER HERE TOGETHER.
"Pardon me one word, Mr. President,
spoken for the purpose of getting into
the volumes that go out annually
freighted with the rich eloquence of
your speakers the fact the Cavalier, as
well as the Puritan, was on this conti
nent in its early days, and that he was
'up and able to be about.' Laughter.
I nave read your books carefully and I
find no mention of that fact, which
seems t me important for preserving a
sort of historical equilibrium.
"With Hie Cavalier once established
its a fact in your charming little book,
we shall let him work out his own sal
vation, as he has always done with en
gaging gallantry, and we will hold no
controversy as to his merits. Why
should we? Neither Puritan nor Cava
lier lon.g survived sis such. The virtues
and tradition of both happily stilllive
for the inspiration of their sons and the
saving of the old fashion. Applause.
But both Puritan and Cavalier were
lost in the storm of their first revolu
tion, and the American citizen, sup
planting both, and stronger than either,
took possession of the Republic bonght
by their common blood and fashioned
In wisdom, and charged himself with
teaching men free government and es
tablishing the voice of the people as
the voice of God. Applause. Great
types like valuable plants, are slow to
flower and fruit. But from the union
of these colonists, from the straighten
ing of their purposes and fhe crossing
of their blood, slow perfecting throngh
a century, came he who stands as the
first typical American, the first who
comprehended within himself all the
strength and gentleness, all the majes
ty and grace of this Republic Abraham
Lincoln. Loud and long continued ap
plause. He was the sum of Puritan
and Cavalier, for in his ardent nature
were fused the virtues of both, and in
the depth of his great soul the faults of
both were lost. Renewed applause.
LHe was greater than Puritan, greater
than Cavalier, in that he was Ameri
can renewed applause and that in
his homely form were first gathered the
vast and thrilling forces of this ideal
government charging it with such
tremendous meaning, and so elevating
it above human suffering that martyr
dom, though infamously aimed, came
as a fitting crown to a life consecrated
from its cradle to human liberty. Loud
and prolonged cheering. Let us, each
cherishing his traditions and honoring
his fathers, build with reverent hands
to the type of this simple but sublime
life, In which all types are honored, and
in the common glory we shall win as
Americans, there will be plenty and to
spare for your forefathers and for mine.
WHAT THE NEW SOUTH MEANS.
uln speaking to the toast with which
you have honored me, I attribute the
term, 'The New South,1 as in no sense
disparaging to the Old. Dear to me,
sir, is the home of my childhood
and the traditions of my people. There
is a New South, not through protest
against the Old, but because of new
conditions, new adjustments and, if
you pletise, new ideas and aspirations.
It is to this that I address myself. I
ask you gentlemen, to picture, if you
can, the footsore soldier, who, button
ing up in his faded gray jacket the pa
role which was taken, testimony to his
children of his fidelity and faith,
turned his face southward from
Appomattox in April. 1863. Think
of .him as ragged, half-starved, heavy
hearted, enfeebled by want and wounds,
having fmight to exhaustion, he sur
renders his gun, wrings the hands of
his comrades, and, lifting his tear-stained
and pallid face for the last lime to
the graves that dot the old Virginia
hills, and pulls his gray cap over his
brow and begins the slow and painful
journey. What does he find let me
ask you, who went to your homes eager

earned, full payment lor your four

he reaches the home he left four years
before? He finds his house in ruins, hi.-,
farm devastated, his slaves freed, his
stock killed, his barns empty, his trade
destroyed, his money worthless, his
social system, feudal in its magnifi
cence, swept away, his people without
law or legal status, his comrades slain,
and the burdens of others heavy on
his shoulders. Crushed by defeat, his
very traditions gone. Without money,
credit, employment, material or train

with the gravest problem that ever met

made the remark to his comrades:

THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN ACCOM PUSHED.

SENATOR VANCE AND THE ADMINISTRA
TION. From Goldsboro Messenger.
Washington, D. C. Jan. 16. The
North Carolina delegationyexcept Sena
tor Ransom, called upon the President
late Friday afternoon. Their purpose
was to present to him the request of a
large number of citizens that certain
officials of the Internal Revenue service
in North Carolina should not be retain
ed. They protest against the present
management as entailing,' if possible,
greater hardship, amounting to perse
cution, than that unber the former
Republican regime, and bringing dis
credit and injury to the Democratic
party. Senator Vance aclel as the
spokesman, and presented the memo
rials in behalf of the people. His re
marks were well-timed and in his hand
somest manner. The President, reply
ing, said that the mattershould have his
most careful consideration. Whatever
wrongs had been or were being brought
upon the people of North Carolina
through any agency of the United
States should be remedied, so far as his
power extended. He further stated that
he was always glad to hear from the
people, and to know their wishes, which
could be done by direct communica
tion with the people or through their
representatives. Ex-Congressman Arm
held accompanied the delegation.
It is understood here that the rela
tions between Senator Vance and the
Administration have become personally ! a
pleasant, r or a long while the Sena
tor was not in what might be called
good terms with the President. I have
reason to think that a distinguished
Representative, or friend of both, ar
ranged the rapprochement.

The I arm? Feat of a Young- Confederate
From Philadelphia Times
If tire accounts were written of the
many acts of daring and devotion done
by privates and men of humble rank
on both sides during the war between
the States k,I suppose that even the
world itself could not contain the
books." Not the least distinguished of
these unnoted heroes was the subject of
this sketch, to whose bravery the safe
ty of Richmond wtis perhaps in great
measure due at the time Gen. Butler
attempted the capture of that city in
Flitx. Wood, of Yadkin county, N. C,
enlisted as a private in the Confederate
army before he was tit'teen years of
age. At the first battle of Manassas,
or Bull Run, he was wounded, and in
1803 he was transferred from Whar
ton's N. C. batallion to serve as courier
to Brigadier General Hoke. The staff
officers of Gen. Hoke, finding that
Wood had had no advantages of educa
tion and that he was very desirious lo
improve himself, taught him to read
and write, and a bright pupil he prov
ed himself to be. In 18G4, when Hoke
was promoted to major-general, Wood
was made division scout, a position for
which he had proved that he was well
Htted, though he was then only eigh
teen years old. Sometimes, however,
he mside the very unusual error in
judgment of capturing to many pris
oners. Many were his successful forays
upon the Federal outposts, and on-Qe
occlusion, when single-handed he had
compelled the surrender of nine men
and brought them safely into camp, he
had to be told that information and
not prisoners was what he had lieen
sent for, and that however desirable
the latter might be the former was of
In May, 1S61, when Gen. Butler
landed at Bermuda Hundreds with two
army corps, the Confederate forces at
Hrst in his front were entirely insuffi
cient to resist successfully his march
upon Richmond. He advanced to the
neighlwirhood of Drury's Bluff and go
ing into position extended his left un
til it seemed inevitable that he would en
velop the right of the Confederate
position and get, possession of the roiid
to Richmond. This movement it was
essential to check. But how? The
troops then at hand were not equal to
the ti.sk, and to get reinforcements
time was necessary. The question was
how to get this precious time. Gen.
Hoke, who commanded on the Confed
erate' right, determined to attempt its
Solution by a rose as bold as unusual.
Night was not far off and it was felt
that if Butler's further movement could
be delayed until darkness fell all would
be well. Calling up Wood Gen. Hoke
explained to him the position fully and
asked 'him if he were willing to give
his lit, if need be, to save Richmond.
Without hesitation the boy for he
was hardly more replied that he was.
He was then dressed in the uniform of
a Federal cavalryman and ordered first
to get m some way into the rear of the
Federal position and then to ride bold-

questioned closely. Wood, havingthor
ough knowledge of the country, rode
off on his perilous errand. After he
had been gone for what seemecka very

Most of the few persons who were
aware of what Wood had attempted
could not believe that it was possible
for him to haye done as he said and to
escape unharmed. . But shortly after
the close of the war Gen. Hoke met
Col. Michie, of Butler's staff, and ask

that though he was somewhat suipect

not detained; that the movement to

the report could be investigated, and

outlive the struggle in which he had

treachery, and he met it with the same
fearlessness that had characterized his
previous career. After the evacuation

Confederate forces lay for a short. time

he entered the house found himself con-

he had killed or disabled several of his

the store, the postoffice and to carry all

to invent a new mode of locomotion, so
that he could economize his legs and do
