Dear Sirs Believing it to be tbe duty
of every citizen to do what he can for
advancing the prosperity of the "Lihrary
Association''; I cheerfully give myself up
to your wishes as expressed in the note
this day received. I will be prepared to
lecture, accordingly, on the evening of
March 10th, and shall take for my theme;
"Success". Hoping that my townsmen
will think it worth while to take advan
tage of this additional opportunity to
show their interest in the institution you
represent, I am, gentlemen,
- Yours, mcst respectfully,

We had the pleasure of meeting this
afternoon with an old acquaintance in the
person of Mr. J. D. Caddigan, of New
York , one- of the proprietors of tbe Tre
mont House in that cityt a place well
known to North Carolinians, for the rea
son that for many years past it has been
a favorite resort with many North Caro
Una merchants who visit the great metro
polis in the Spring and Autumn seasons
to buy their stocks of new goods. But
the hotel business is a secondary consid
eration with Mr. Caddigan cow, though
he is still in that line, but Is at the same
time seeking new fields and pastures green
among the mountains of North Carolina
and particularly iu the trans-montane
country bordering on Dock town, Tenn,,
and Paint Rock in this State. The first
named region of country, as far as Pigeon
river, Mr. C. i describes as the prettiest
country he ever J laid eyes on, being One
vast panorama of beautiful and pictur
esque scenes which the eye can feast upon
while, the traveler meanders in and
around through mountain gorges, oyer
mountain tops,! ' through valleys and
across running an 1 sparkling streams
with beautiful cascades. But, our pur
pose was to say that Mr. Caddigan is in
teres ted to some extent, we believe, with
Mr. Best and, 'the proposition of the last
named gentleman in the purchase of the
Western N.C Railroad, and this, we be
lieve, was the cause of his visit to West
ern Carolina, and we think, though we
are by no means certain, that Mr, Caddi
gan's visit to Wilmington at this particu
lartimeis also concerted either directly
or indirectly with the Best proposition for
the purchase of the above named road,
but further than this, deponeth sayeth
not, though we pumped hard for a little
information upon .the subject but couldn't
quire reach the suction point. We did
learn, however, that there is a mining
company under tne name and title of
Ham by Branch Mining Company, , in Ca
barrus county, some six miles east of
Concord, and covering some 875 acres of
ground; which Mr Caddigan, along with
other fetoc'vbolJers, hopes to realize hand
somely frm in 'the uar figure. It is a
ulphuet mia, and ai &ooa at new
sme iiLg works rjO'v -n process of erection

Hop Bitters, which are advertised in
our coluains, are a sure cure for ague,
biliousness and kidaey complaints. Those
who use them say they cannot be too
h-gbly . recommended. Those afflicted
should, give them a fair tfial, and will
become thereby enthusiastic in the praise
of their curative qualities. JPorlland
