Tammany has exhibted a very com

securing harmony in New York

bicat he the right spirit. The differ

say , are not of principle, but arc
nomiiiaPaiid trivial, and they re
solved that Tammany would mako
every dibi t and every concession
consistent with honor looking
to an adjustment of
differences, and that "we tender
the right hand of fellowship to the

appointed a committee, to consult

With the cheek calculated to draw
tears from the eyes of a brass mon

asked them to call for "Winston of
North Carolina.' Thus beguiled,
the unsuspecting citizens Jdid callj

went on doing well, his horse do-in-4-

he stopped in front of the house of

Roll Call In Heaven
An incident is related by a chap
lain who was in the army during
one of our hard fought battles.
The hospital tents had been fill
ing up as the wounded men had
been, brought to the .rear.
Among the number was a young
niau mortally wounded, and not
able to speak. It was near mid
night, and many a lovedjone from
hoai'i lay sleeping 011 the battle
field that sleep which knows no
waking until Jesus calls for
Tlni surgeons had been serving
their rounds of duty, and for a
moment all was quiet. Suddenly
this young man , before speechless,
calls :ii a clear, distinct voice,
"Here!" The surgeon hastened
to his side, and asked what he
wished, ''Nothing", said he. 'the.y
are calling the roll in heaven, and
I was answering to my name.' lie
turned his head aud was gone

We were shown Tuesday, says
the ''Southerner." a pea vine
which came from an ordinary black
pea, covering over two hundred
square feet of ground. About one
half of the peas have been gather
ed, these measured a little more
than three pints, and numbered
5700. When all the. peas are gath

from this one pea will be at least
ten thyusand fold. The vine will

TERRIBLE RATE OF INTEREST.
We know -f a merchant who
pays not to exceed 8 cents for
meat aud compels those who trade
with him under the lien system to
pay 14 cents nearly "one hundred
per cent" aud that too when he
will get his money in two months.
Is itwonderful that there is a grow
ing demand that the lien system be
abolished by law t This way of
doing things will ruin the labor in
any country. 100 per cent for two
months is COO per cent per 'annum.
The Farmers' Convention.
A mass convention of the farm

in the grand stand, at the next
State Fair. The first meeting to

from day to day during the week.
The objects of this convention will
be to unite the farmers of the state
in inexpensive State, county and
neighborhood organizations .for
mutual improvement and co-operation

idea, and think some farmers from
every township in the State should
attend this State mass 'meeting,
and thereafter, organize county,
and township meetings for mutual
oveuient and protection. Whv

in my speeches here I have en
tleavoretl to express what I know
to be the sentiment all thrnugh
the South, ami that is that we
want all our past ttitl'ercnces to lm

Here in 011r magnificent cities of

We w;in t to see our section of
the country great, prosperous and
wealthy, as your section. We
have come to leain something '
how these weie achieved by you.
and we have learned one important
lesson that in New F.iiglaml y on
have no room for idlers and loalcis;
that New Kngland has been buill
up by the energy, push and perse
verance of her sons ami daughters.
All through North Carolina 1 have
tried to inculcate I b it lesson, lo
impress upon our people that
while we look for capital ami labor
from the North, and stand ready
to welcome them, yet, after all.
the destiny of the South remains
.. ;.i. 11... ........1 , .,)' tlm Smith. Anil
Mil 11 I HV r, .j.t.F -
that destiny can only be made j
grand by observing two principles.;
It must be recognized in gootl !
frith, with a fixed purpose lolive
up to it, that there is .0 be no
separation of the sections of this
great country. All the mountain
ranges of the con u try run North
and South; nature made no lines of
separation, and God in his wisdom
has decreed that there shall be no
imaginary separation. And from
the day tin flag which I followed in
the storm of battle for four years
was furled in lSu., to me it was
furled forever, and I stood again
beneath the fold of the Stars and
StrijH-s, the ting of our common
country. Applause. The other
great lesson that 1 have tried to
impress upon the people of North
Carolina is that the destiny ami
prosjierity of the State and the
whole South depend ujhhi ihe ener
gy ami enterprise of our sons and
daughters; that her wasted fields
must be made to boom again by
work, and that work is honorable
in all men in every M'ctioti oft he
country. Applause. These senti
ments, I am haypy to lie able to
assure you, ns a visit to our State
demonstrates, are taking hold of
our people- It is prospering; new
interests are being built up and
old ones revived.
I understand that this is, to
some extent a jwlitical club, but I
did not come North to talk polities.
