An bid resident of Connecticut says:
"The similarity between the year 1884
and that of 1816, 'the year without a
summer,1 is being strikingly realized.
The present year is ewn more pheno
menal in that the July and August
weather has been generally much colder
and more singular than was that of
1816, though the June of the earlier
season was colder than was last June "
Thus far there has been a frost in each
month of this year.
The late James L. Claghorn, of Phil

Fine Arts at Philadelphia was placed
upon its present footing by a popular
subscription of $265,000. He was the
owner of about 50,000 fine engravings
and had a library full of art works,
while his collection of fine prints is the

Wednesday's Charlatte Observer con
tains the following: "Col. William
Johnston desires us to state that he
never uttered at Salisbury the language
attributed to him in the Raleigh News
and Observer of the 30th ultimo, and
that never in tois experience, either
in public or in private, has he made
use of such vulgar and profane expres
sions." Commenting on this the News and
Observer says: We have no disposi
tion to contradict Col. Johnston about
this matter so as to raise any issue con
Our object in giving publicity to the
statement has doubtless already been
accomplished, and the State has been
saved by a possible riot intended for use
at the"North, to inflame the passions of
Northern voters against the Southern
whites. At least we hope so. We
give the paragraph containing Col.
Johnston's denial without intending to
make any comment upon it whatever.
There is but one plain inference to
be drawn from the remarks of our Ral
eigh cotemporary and that is that, if it
thought fit to do so, it could early prove
that Col. Johnston did make the re
mark attributed to him. In view of
this fact it is to be regretted that our
cotemporary has decided to withhold

One of the great needs of Wilmington
is the encouragement of some im
portant enterprise which shall not only
call population and capital to our midst,
but shall also be a means by which
other industrial enterprises may be
established. Although we have long
maintained a well-established reputa
tion as a naval stores market and have
recently advanced materially as a cotton
exporting city, the great improvements
made in our river by which a much
greater depth of water has been ob
tained, giving largely increased com
mercial facilities, galls for other enter
prises to aid us forward in the pursui1
ot influence and prosperity. Our situa
tion on the Atlantic coast i3 very favor
able, as we aio much nearer the States
of Tennessee. Kentucky and Ohio than
any other port, and with railroad com
munication complete to those sections
we ought to control the shipment of
their products. The Cranberry Iron
Works and the vast coal mines which
abound in East Tennessee are within
easy reach of Wilmington- many miles
nearer than to any other point on the
entire Atlantic coast and our people
ought tJ push every nerve to gain con-
troi of this vast and important traffic.
If railroad connections should be made
with these important points either by
way of Shelby or Lincoln ton. this city
would at once enter upon a career of
prosperity such as she has never dream
ed ot. She would become at. once an
important coaling station for sea-going
steamers, calling for a large outlay of
capital with a certainty of a profitable
These remarks haye -been suggested
by a rumor which has reached us to
tho effect that parties interested in
the Cranberry Works, in this
State, and the Tennessee coal mines
in Tennessee have.it in view to make
Wilmington a depot for iron and coal
and if the moral and physical support
of our people can be secured we believe
that the project may be carried out.
A Monster Meeting.
,Our friend, Mr. E. G. Blair, who
was present, writes us giving an ac
count of tho Democratic meeting at
Shelby. Ha says that it was the larg
est political meeting thiit ho ever at
tended and that he bad no idea that
such an immense gathering was possi
ble in a country towq. There were
between 5,000 and 6,000 people in at
tendance, and there" were some who
placed the number as high as 10,000.
Mai. C W. McClammy, Democratic
elector from the Sixth Congressional
District, was present and placed the
number at fully 6,000, and said it was
the largest and grandest oritpourrng
that he had ever witnessed. The en
thusiasm was intense and if anyone
thinks that the Democrats are not in
earnest in North Carolina and are not
organized for the contest, they should
have been at Shelby and have been con
vinced of their error.
Senator Vance came to Lincolnton on
the narrow guage railroad, and as he
tpok the Carolina Central train for
Shelby, his wife, who was present,
warned him to make a good speech at
the latter place, and the distinguished
Senator certainly obeyed her command
to the letter, tor he made one of the
best speeches that ever fell from his
lips, and that is saying much. He ex
posed the rascalities ot the Republican
party both in State, and National politic
as he only is capable of doing.
Upon his arrival at Shelby. Senator
Vance was met by a large cavalcade of
mounted men with banners headed by
a brass band who . had assembled to
welcome one of North Carolina's most
distinguished sons. It was a scene
only comparable to his inauguration as
Governor at Raleigh.
The woods around Shelby would re
mind one of the camping of a wagon
train during the war. There were more
than 1 000 horses and mules tied to the
wagons and hitched in -other ways
throughout the forest. . "
The State and county tar books are
now in Sheriff Manning's hands and
prompt settlements are requested. .
