The introduction was a little infor
mal, but under the circumstances quite
sufficient? and very soon all stiffness
vanishecl. and the party was chatting
and eating with the ease and noncha
lence of old acquaintances? No,
not quite. The Captain was the ex
ception. In the accidental positions
gained, by the several members of the
party, he fell nearest to Miss Relx-cca,
the junior member of the fair trio, and
the fairest of them all. Her voice
thrilled him, her laughing eyes electri
fied him, her form of exquisite neat
ness, and her manners of uuaffected
gracefulness bore him away to the
heavens for a comparison. Poor fel
low,, he was what the boys call "stuck."
Aye!, and it was a serious affair to the
Captain. Indeed, falling in love with
a girl nearly always ends seriously. It
is not a thing to lie t.ifled with. The '
outcome is either blissful or dreadful;
beautiful as a May morn or black as
a Siberian night; soothing as the
murmur of a nver or raspiug as a storm.

Once when traveling in a stage-coach
I met a young lady who neemed to be
upon the constant .lookout for some
thin laughable; and, not content with
laughing hen elf, to ok great pains to
make otiurs i.o the same.
Now traveling iu a stage coach is
rather pn sey uusuitss. . feople in the ;

peevish and selfish; so the young la y s
good humor was, for a time, very agree- j

was made the subject 'of a passing joke,
while the cows and hens looked demuie

be merry at their expense Animals
are not sensitive in that respect. They
are not likely to have their feelings ih
j 1 1 red because people m ike fun of tnem;
Out when we come to human beings
that isqniteauother thing. So it skein
ed to me; for after awhile an oid wo
man came running across the field,
swinging her b ig at the coachman, and
in a shrill voice begging him to stop.
The good-natured ccachman drew up
his horses, and the good old lady com
ing to the fence by the road -side, squeez
ed herself tbrpugh two bars,which
were not only in a horrizonta) position,
but verv near together. The young la
dy in the stage-coach made someludri-
c jus remark, and the p isstngers I iiihgen.
It seemed very excusable, for in get
ting through the fence the poor old wo
man had made sad work w ith her old
black bonnet, and now taking her se it
beside a well-dressed lady, really looked
as if she had been blown there by a
whirlwind. This was a new piece of
fun, and the girl made the most 'of it.
Shecarnicatiired the old lady upon a card;
pretended, when she was not looVmg, to
take patterns of her b nni-'t, and in va
rious oilier ways tried to rai.-e a laugh.
At length the poor old woman turned
a pale face toward her.
"My de rr," said she, '-you are young,

And then, my de ir, I sh ill a poor

where merry girls think m; a very
amusing object. They will laugh sit
my old-fashioned cloathes and odd ap

man had a spirit that has loved and
suffered and will live forever.
The coach now stopped liefore a poor
looking house, and the old lady feebly

DESCRIPTION OF THE MURDE353.
As well a could 1k lar mt !v a
Chronich Jv irt"r yesu-r.1 iy - iV.ni
Knox ls-aboiit thiriv vear of age. He
is about 5 feet 8 inebea in height, and
..... .... . j
is well proportioned, iwefghingj when
last seen in this part of the country,
about 150 pounds. He walks witb his
shoulders well thrown back, and moves
with great agility. So great is his .
suppleness, that a man -who" once raw - -him
remarked to a Chronicle reporter -that
he walked like he Jias made' of"
India rubber and was set on springs.' '
Knox is coal black, but hia skin h of
the '8hiny" kind, and not dingy. He -has
a very peculiarlyshaped head. It
is very large in the region of the cheek
bones, but tapers upward in a conical
shape, so that lie wears U very-small
He Has large teeth, and an unmistak-
able mark is the absence of the left"
front one, which was broken off close
to the gum; - '
. Gow Fowl's-Speech. ; ;
Gov. Fowleiu his speech at theSouthr
em Society dinner in NewlYork said: i
Mr. President, and Gentleman I
think if there is one State in this xnte;-1
can Union that don't know how to blow I
its trumpet it is North dirohna., A-
plause. And yet I tellvou that there
are no people now within the city of
New York that are prouder of the display
which the Union made on day before
yesterday within your midst than $he
old North State. Applause. Let me
tell you, ineri of New, York, that there
was one grevance that North 1 Carolina
had against New York, and only one,
and I will tell you what it was r- When
-you placed us in the procession, you
placed lo,UUU men from Iiew lork in
such a position that it took a long time
for North Carolina to greet her sister
South Carolina. ' Laughter aud ap
plause. liut Norm Carol na got there
all the same. Laughter and applause.
Now, L Witnt. to say one thing to this
grand New York Southern Society It
members of the a.j;i. hern acietv; I
wih you to . lwve treasure! upon your
record every brave act of every Confed-
erate.sojdier in the late war between,
the States, and for this reason, Bev.
cause we waut to show to you that the
next time, if in our day the Unitted . -States
of America is engaged in a strug- . (
gle with any foe, that these same South-- .
i ern sold.ers intend to.surp ass their re-
cord. LLioud applause. J Again let me
say to you that while New .York may-
love this American Union, and white"
Georgia, through her ditisnguished son,
may boast of their devotion to this
Union, Tet lell nie you that plain. North
Carolina has within her breast n .af- ,
fection for this Union xf oiir fathers , J
that is second to no State ujioh the soil
of North Amarica. Laiid jippluuse.. i!
My countrymen, do you know why it is ; ;
is that we had such a grand celebration
sis this?- I stood upon your streets,
and I went in a carriage from one end
j to the other, and I gazed in the -faces -
0f a million of free men, who prided
themselves in the title of American ciUv Y.c
izens. Applause. Why is.it that kve .
had such a demonstration as this? J . I;
will tell you, sir, why. When tho
Southern States went from the Union -'
there was one thing that they carried
with them. What is it? It was thaW .1
grand, glorious instrument, that work .
of your patriots and-sagacious states-
men. th:it le?.t model of eiril crnvprn-
