followers of Magee, while some" out

Leaclr, the private secretary and facto

Republican Committee, became involv

close of the banquet.
In such company the conversation
nitunillv drifted to Quay's leadership
of the party, and then the Magee man
became indignant and loudly proclaim
ed that Quay had sacrificed the organi
zation for the sake of one point, and
that was that as the next House of
Representatives would sorely be over

the signs of disaster. The chairman

But they must be forced into line.
The salvation of the party demands it.
The apportionment bill is not all of

Leach, in a half-angry, hulf-supplica

The South's Opportunity.
An international exhibition is to be
held in London, the coming summer,
that will be unique. The Crystal Pal
ace at Sydenham, will be ttie place.
The scope will cover all ores, all metal,
all machines, and all appliances used in
mining, in reducing, and in smelting.
The prospectus says :
"An international exhibition of min
ing und metallurgy on an extensive
scale will take place in London during
the summer of 1800, and arrangements
have been made with the Crystal Palace
Co., whereby the exhibition will be
held at the Crystal Palace, Sydenham.
The scope of the exhibition will be suf
ficiently wide to enable a most valuable
and interesting display to be made.
"Immense advances have of late
years taken place in mining and metal
lurgical practice, and no wholly suit
able opportunity has presented itself,
or been taken advantage of, for ad
equately illustrating the degree of pro
gress which has been attained. This
remark especially applies to metallif
erous mining, and to the economical
treatment of refractory ores, for the
recovery of precious metals. More
over, it will be readily admitted that at
no previous period has mining as aimed
such a degree of importance, whether
it be regarded as an industry, a profes
sion, or a vehicle for speculation and
investment. A little consideration will
suffice to emphasize the expression,

many, that an international exhibition

abruptly asked his companion, " Who
is taking this census, anyway ?"
" Robert P. Porter and his assistants,
I suppose," replied Mr. Leach's com
panion. ki Yes, and you can rest assured that
the census will be taken right," was the
speedy answer. "What do you sup
pose Quay spent all those weeks in
Florida for tarpon fishing ? Well,
liardlv, let me tell you " (and here his
voice became at once emphatic am
'mysterious) "that a southern negro
will have to be very conspicuous to' be

" The space available for the pur

Every effort will be made to render the
exhibition of real practical an l educa

mining and metallurgical industries, as
well as to the general public, amongst
whom so much uncertain knowledge
exists regarding them. It is als bof-

Joiner has never made complaint to

A Strange Spectacle.
Morganton enjoyed a spectacle Mon
day night that few if any of the towns
in North Carolina could command.
It was a mountain forest fire stretch
ing for ten miles or more along the
Table Bock siud Short-Off mountains,
appearing in the darkness, at the dis
tance of twelve miles, like an immense
fiery serpent suspended in the air.
Hundreds of people gazed on the glnr
oiis spectacle, the like of which the
ohhst inhabitant hits never seen. The
effect was height tied by the darkness
of the night which rendered the oat
lines of the mount tins invisible. The
illusion was rendered all the more
striking from the fact that the baud
of fire for all its miles of length was
about the same width, except on the
southern end, where it assumed the
form of a serpent's head. Extensive
fires were raging in the mountains till
day Sunday and Sunday night.
