WILMINGTON. N. C, THURSDAY, JANUARY
A cauliotfto boys is contained in tbe
following fact: On last Tueaday atter
nooa a youog lad about 12 years old,
named James Kasbury. was turning a
on the dccliyity, of a hill in
the Southern scctiou of tbe city, when
he turned into a limobcd at the foot of
tbjchill. striking his legs on the staked
and bruising himself up pretty severe-
I lyl Fortunately no bones were broken
but there was about a square yara oi
6kin peeled off. 1
Vital Statistics. j
In addition to tho number of inter-
i nienls in the different cemeteries" for the
year 1883, just closed, we give those
who were buried jn St. - Thomas
(Catholio) Cemetery and Oak Grove
(Pauper) Cemetery j which were as
follows: . . .
St-. Thomas 8 adults and 9 children,
total 17; Oak Grove 71 adults and 31
children, total 102. Of those buried in
Oak Qrove Cemetery during 1883 8
were whites and 91 were colored.' This
makes a grand total for the year of 487
interments, but it mast be remembered
that quite a number of these j were
brought here from abroad, so that the
number who died in the city will! reach
about 400, which was the estimate we
made yesterday. '

Death of an aged Citizen.
Mr. Luke B. Huggins, who has been
sick for some days with pneumonia,
died at about 12 o'clock last night. His
sickness had soon 1 assumed a serious
character, and for the last low days his
family had no expectation of his re
covery and his death was not unexpect
ed. Mr. Huggins was born in- Onslow
county in November, 180C, and was
consequently 77 years ol age last Nos
vembcr., In 1852 he removed .to this
city and entered into mercantile pur
suits, m.which he has been engaged
ever since until the time of his decease.
His wife died two years ago, just after
the venerable couple had celebrated the
50th anniversary of their wedding day.
Mr. Huggins was patient, devoted and
industrious in business ana was ot un
doubted integrity of character in all the
relations of life. He was a member of
the First Baptist church in this city and
had been a professing Christian for
nearly half a century.
Col. Green In Illinois.
Hon. Wharton J. Green, Represent
ative from this district to Congress, has
been, during the holidays, on a visit to
Senator Davis, at Bloomingtoh, Ills.
The Leader says of his presence in that
city : !
Last evening ex-Senator David Davis
received about twenty-five
me-et CoK Wharton J- Green, of
Tokay, North Carolina, who, with his
itwo accomplished daughters, is the
p Senator and Mrs. Uavis. ine
i tion of the guests, after which tho gen
tbe tlemcn were relegated to a state ot con
vivial bachelorism during thediscussion
of a tempting supper audi the subset
quent happy hours at cards, jokes and
stories. The guosU, who -were largely
lawyers, politicians and representatives
of the press, fonnd inCol. Green a ty
pical Southern gentleman of tho ante
bellum period, when tho general free
handed hospitality aud gentility of tbe
aflorwan?s Confederate States, ww
known the world over. The Colonel
fought on the other side but has long
since buried all animosity and discusses
the exciting times of the sixties with tbe
utmost serenity.. '
He represents tbe Wilmington dis
trict in Con cress and although a I corn-
paratively young man. has een much
of public life, and has. like others present
last evening, the happy faculty of telling
a good story and it is superfluous to
add that the evening jpod away most
pleasantly. The Leader welcomes Col.
Green and family to Bloommgtori and
hopes they may find it convenient and
pleasant to visit hero frequently.,
In the bright . autumnal days the
temptation to comfortable exposure
yields its fruit in a most pernicious
cough and irritation of the throat. Dr.
Bull's Cough Syrup standi unrivaled as
a remedy -for throat and lnng diseases.
