The report was lengthy, and was
considered by sections. The sections
with reference to the location of the
Orphanage were adopted witiiout de

manner in which the institution
should Ik managed and be governed. '
Many Charlotte people, including a
considerable number of ladies, were i
present to hear the committee's report
After the reading of

meeting" prtpuvd ami snt out :i circu
lar, asking the c -iteration of the
Preshytei'ies, and reporlsi rom them ;;s
to the extent of the aid they would
render to the proposed institution.
The chairman received tiiee ieport,
and a synopsis of them, together with
all the original documents, was pre
sented to the commission at Charlotte,
Oct. 0, 1880. The following is the
chairman's report Paper A.:
To the Sy nodical Commission for thees
tablishmen ot an Orphan's Home: j
Gentlemen;: -As. Chairman of your
: Commission 1 would respectfully report
; concerning the duties imposed on me
that I have secured responses Irom all
the five Presbyteries in regard to their
action concerning the proposed Home.
1. Orange Presbytery endorses the
action of the Synod and commends the
cause to her churches. The Presbytery
is persuaded that the churches will con
tribute 500.00 a year towards its snje
port, and will increase that sum as
necessity demands. No offers of land
or money for the erection of the Home
are made. (See minutes Orange Pres
bytery, April, 1880, page 70.)
2. Fayetteville Presbytery assures the
other Presbyteries of her hearty inter
est in the scheme and pledges her co-
I IIs i
operation in building up and maintain-
ing such an institution. This Presby-
tery recommends the acceptance of Dr.
MeKoy's generous offer of one hun
dred acres of land and building at Sum-
merville, unless a more advantageous
otter be made elsewhere
of Minutes enclosed.)
3. Wilmington Presbytery instructs;
Dr. Marable to lay before the Conimis-
sion tne oner 01 a tract containing 100

Railway Companv, together with free
transportati' 11 of material on the rail
road. The land has sufficient timber
and brick clay on it for all building
purposes. No offer of funds for erect
ing buildings or support for the Home
u made by this Presbytery. (See pa
pers.) 4. The responses from the churches
of Concord Presbytery assure us of their
willingness to co-operate in building up
aud maintaining an "Orphan's Home."
One church, Davidson College, offers
$30 annually. The Salisbury church
and some of the citizens of Salisbury
made the following offers, viz:
1st. Three parties offer a choice of
several ten acre lots, in the immediate
vicinity of Salisbury, each of them de
sirable, and -of an average value of $50
per :cre. upon condition that the Horn
shall be lortatd -tpon them.
21 The Session of the Salisbury
church pledges $500 in cash, with.ii
the year 1890, provided the Home i
loeated at or near Salisbury, on eithei
of these lots.
3d. The Session of the Salisbury
church further pledges $390 in cash
towards the establishment of an Oi
phans' Home by the Synod, wherever
located, as soon as the scheme seems
feasible, smd likely to be put in opera
tion. The session also assures the
Synod that the church will aid in the
supported of the home, wherever located.
4th. A gentleman of Salisbury pled
ges himself for $50 towards the erec
tion of the Home, provided it is located
at Salisbury. (See papers and pledges
5. Mecklenburg Presbytery approves
the Synod's movement, and assures the
CorunissionthattheCharlottechurihes I e following resolutions, and the con

Advertising Scheme Which Bid
A man from a neighboring towu
came here two or three weeks ago and
solicited cards from our business men
to go on a bill advertising the State
fair. He sold space at $2; per inch aud
raised $48 here for -which he was to
furnish 20,000 bills. The bills came.
They were about ftxlO inches in size.
Stitesvillo cirds, 1 arid 1 inches eich,
formed a border for an advertisement
of the fair in the centre; and, except
ing the fair advertisement, the largest
aud most conspicuous card on the bill
was that of the job office at which the
work was done, tne proprietor of which
hail worked up the business. The con
tract was that these bills were to be
thoroughly distributed. They were
'"distributed" ly the handful. We are
certain that we saw 25 of them on the
street in front of one residence. Stacks
of them were left on the counters and
show ea.-es of merchants, where they
are i 1 1.8; for wrapping paper for small
Oar business men who were hood
winked in this scheme do not deserve
ridicule. They went into it in good
lank, with their usual enterprise, with
the view of advertising themselues.
This case however, raises the question
as to what is advertising and when is
it profitable? The man who wants to
buy something or sell something wants
publicity and he should use the med-
takes a certnin space in a newspaper it
, is for the pnrpose of getting before the

np,inle of a certain emmtv hihot mMn
of reachi.ig them is through a news
paper which every person in the county
1 reads who can read at all. In the
1 case in point the money spent on this
Jittie bill was money thrown away be
cause it. did not give our business men
i that which they thought they would
! get by it, to-wit: publicity. The State
fair and a certain job ofhee got a cer
tain amount of advertising not much,
around our streets and stores--
aud the business men of Statesville
paid for it, they themselves not bt
ing !eneficiaries in any degree what
ever. Doubtless some of our people were
caught by this trick because it bore
the imprimatur of the State Agri
cultural Society; and we take leave
to say to the officers of that society
that they do wrong to lend their
conntenance to these catch-penny
We are reminded just now of this
little game by reading in the Salisbury
Watchman that Salisbury was picked
up by it just as Statesville was.
The Floor Gave Way.
At one of our colored churches, re
cently, a revival was in progress, at
tended by large congregation. At
one of the evening services the preach
er had stirred up the sinners to the
enormity of t heir sins, and church mem
bers were singing and had commenced
what they call the "holy rock" which
is a rocking of the body from one side
to the other. The floor could not stand
the pressure and it fell through, letting
a portion of the congregwtion down
several fet. The fall came with uch
suddenness that it created a stam
pede and con.-itlerab'e confusion. The
night'! metin adjourned then and
When Confederates came swarming
across the Crew's farm t reach us on
Mai vern Hill, we knew they were com
ing to death and defeat. We hail
been driven back from the Chickahnni
iny, step by step and day by day, fight
ing fiVne battles at 'every rallying
point, but this was the end." Malvern
Hill, crowned with troops, and bristi
ling with canuon, was impregnable
ii .i ...- ,
wards the Crew's house in the drv bed
. , . "- wmiHj5 ,
of a creek. It was a capital rifle pit,
and we -were packed in there so thick
that we scarcely had elbow room. As
the legions in gray attacked, our rapid
fire, assisted by the batteries above us,
was enough to demoralize the lines,
without the infantry, higher up, tiring
Magruder must have been insane
I that afternoon to send his men to their
death across that onenin? as he did.
We could see them come out of the
forest in splendid formation, and as
they got the order to advance their
step was like clock work. There was
a meadow with hardly a stump in it
stretched awav before us for half a
aetnnu ,.,ba a,u
enough to make our Hesh creep to see
the havoc worked by our shell bafore
the lines got within musket rang.
The maq on my left laid down bis
musket and prayed God that the rebels
would go back and thus put an end to
the horrible work. Then, when they
pushed on and got within range, there
was a flame all along onr line flame
after flame and not a rebel got within
a stone's throw.
The last charge, nvide just a twi
light was the raost desperate of all.
Thje tinea started with a yell and
charged on the run, and though hun
dreds went down other hundred kept
on. We shattered and scorched and
withered them with our musketry fire,
and 1 finally heard them sound "re
treat." We sprang np, gave them a
last volley, and then'dashed forward a
hfew rods with the bayonet. Out of
the smoke and darkness suddenly ap-
j a 1. nNi
eareu a ngure on my iront. mere
was a bla$e. and the man on my right
went down, shot in the shoulder.
There was a whiz 2 z! and the butt of a
musket cleared my head and knocked
the man on my eft flat to the earth.
I had my musket at a charge when a
voice called out:
" Hold on, I surrender ?'
I went forward and took hold of
him, and who or what do you suppose
he was? A boy not yet 15 Tears old
and ns pale faced ss a girl. More than
that, he was wounded in the side, in

An Interesting Fact
Why do birds not fall from the perch
when they are asleep? Because they
cannot open the foot when the leg is
bent. Look at a hen walking and see
it close the toes as it lifts its feot, and
open them as it touches the ground.

The snhject of history as taught Am
our State has long bseti a matter of
interest to me, especial I v that part
which treats of the late war.
While it may be natural that north
ern writers should teach, and northern
children believe, that thom who f ought
on the southern side were re Vis and
traitors, it seems only right that south-

the reasons on which their fathers
acted, lt was with no small concern
then that I lately read a history nf
North Carotin now being advertised ia
your paper, a book whose great merit
is marred hy faults too grave to he left
unnoticed; in which the opinions of
the author are taught ns facts; the
grave questions which eminent states-
1 men have hesitated to decide upon ar

northern view of the bite war is pre

North Carolina not onlv refused to
aid in suppressing this reVllion, but
sent 125,000 volunteers to join the
rebels. Yet this history of North
Carolina declares that the hearts ot her
people were not in this war to which
they sprang so willingly and to which
they gave more men than any other
State. The writer evidently confound
the Union party with the people of tb
State. We find the bsrest mention of
