In accordance with the announce

meeting of the Produce Exchange.
Chamber of Commerce and Board of
Trade held at the roorus of the first
named organization at 12 30 this after
noon. Besides these there were a mini
bcr of citizens present. The object of
I he meeting was to listen to the purposes
and plans ol the Stale Exposition,
which is to be opened at Ualcigh on the
first of October next,' from Mr. W. S.
Primrose, President of the Exposition
company, who, wun Mr. 11. Jb. rie?

Commissioner of the State, were
The meeting was organized by calling
Mr. Charles H. Robinson to the chair
and appointing Col. J. L. Cautwell
The meeting being duly organized
Mr. W. S. Primrose was called upon
to state the objects, expectations and
plans of conducting the exposition,
which he did in an able, terse and force
ful manner. He reviewed rapidly the
changes which have taken place in
North Carolina since, andj as a legiti
mate result of tho War; spoke of the
resources of, tho State which have been
developed, the new industries which
had successfully and pre
viously been encouraged and of the in
calculable benefits accruing to North
Carolina on account of its'magnigficent
and exhaustive display at the Boston
exposition. He then proceeded to de
monstrate to his bearers ,that.thed van
tages derived by our exhibit at the Bos
ton exposition would ba maintained and
improved upon by an exposition in
our own State, in which tho products
ot every county, should take a part
thus giving iuformation to tho thous
ands of visitors from abroad who
would be present, an adequate idea of
our vast and varied resources from
which each might select the iudustry in
which to invest bis labor or capital, or
both, as best suited bis inolina'ion. He
then stated the plans by which it wa3
nronosed to make the exposition a
complete success and of the most prac
tical Valued to the people of the State.
It wa3 desired that'each county should
bo represented by its products under the
charge of com petent men. Tho grounds
of the State Agricultural Society have
been rented for the exposition and the
platform buildings are now in course
of preparation which will be suitable
for the proper display of the products
of tho State," by counties. Every ar
rnnt-Rment was being made as near
perfect as possible for tho storage and
Htanlftv ot rjrodacts. and the citi-
zens of Raleigh were making ample
preparation for the accommodation of
the thousands of guests who would un
doubtedly be present at tho exposition.
Tho remarks of Mr. Primrose were
listened to with profound attention and
After he had concluded, Mr. S. G.
Worth, State Superintendent of Fish
and Fisheries, made a short but inter
esting address, in which he urged upon
the people ot Wilmington the impor
tance of the fishing interest of Eastern
North Carolina and especfally ol New
Hanover county, and hoped that that
industry would bo a prominent feature
of the Exposition. He also stated that
ho would establish a shad hatchery in
or near tho city, and exhibited several
photographic views of the fishing in
dustry in other sections of the State.
His remarks were interesting and in
It was then voted unanimously by
the meeting to ask the Board ol County
Commissioners to appropriate a sum,
not exceeding $500, to be used imme
diately in forwarding the interests ol
New Hanover county at the Exposition;
should this sum provo inadequate to
increase the amount as the exigencies
of tho 2aso may demand through a joint
meeting with the Board of Magistrates.
Mr. B. G. Worth then offered the
following prcamb'e and resolution:
Wiiekcas. Believing that the Ex
position to bo held in the city of Raleigh
will be highly beneficial to the whole
State of North Carolina, we feel it both
a duly and privilege to do what wo can
to further tho efforts which are being
put forth to make it a complete success.
licsolvcd. That a committee of three,
consisting of Messrs. Charles II- Rob
inson, J. H. Currie and B. F. Hall, be
appointed to accompany the representa
tives of the Exposition now in the city,
Messrs. Primrose and Fries, in waiting
upon.our citizens for privato subscrip
tions! The meeting then adjourned. -

In the May number will appear the
first instalment of a powerful story
entitled "Trajau," which will be con
tinued for about a year. It will be
handsomely illustrated. The American
characters will iu many cases be re
cognized as persons who were promi
nent in Paris during the closing years
of the reign of Napoleon the Third. The
foreign characters are those notable
personages who were players in the
game which resulted in the checkmate
of Imperial power and the establish
ment of the French Republic. A bright
current of fact and fancy, with strong
dramatic action, will cause this pro
duction to recall some works of one of
the. masters of English fiction. The
openicg chapters will give but a fore
taste of what may be expected as the
narrative goes on.
