bale?, stands highest on the yield per
acre, the average being one bale to

Wilmington & Weldon Railroad,
lying off the road, will average with
these nine. Pitt comes the nearest,
and reports 14,366 bales, Lenoir next,
8,144, and Greene 8,000. The yield
in Greene is 2 4. acres to the bale.

seemed deeply offended. He drew
himself up proudly and said: 'Now

Chapel Hill, N. C, May 23.
We are looking forward to the ap
proaching Commencement at the
University, June 1st and 2nd. with
pleasure, and predict that it
will be a brilliant success. Although
the University Railroad is not yet
finished, we will doubtless have a
much larger crowd than we have ever
before had, as there have been made,
up toj the present time, more engage
ments for board and sleeping quar
ters than for many years previous to
this.! Through the kindnesB of the
railroad officials, and in consequence
of the: untiring energy of our very
efficient Chief Marshal, Mn D. E.
Mclver, greatly reduced . rates have
been secured on all the railroads of
the State. No pains have been spared
to secure an abundance of comfor
table vehicles to convey visitors to
Chapel Hill, and the roads are in Sx-
cellent condition.-Once arrived pleas
ures of the highest order await the
visitor. It will be his privilege to
hear that able divine and pulpit ora
tor, Dr.. Wm. r. Harribon, of Wash
ington City, who will preach the an
nual ; isermon. Dr. Harrison has . a
national reputation, and all we need
say of him is, that he will certainly
be here. The address before the two
Literary Societies will be delivered
by our own peerless Senator, Hon.
M. W. Ransom. The graduating
class! consists of thirty members.
Among them are many fine speakers.
The gentlemen that have been chosen
to speak are: Messrs. W. J. Adams,
Albertson, Avery, Joy ner, Leach,

when more than half-way home, a slight
commotion on the boat said by some to
have been caused by the playful pranks of
a onmoer oi youtns on tne .lower deck, and
by others ascribed to the boat striking on a
snag caused the crowd out of curiosity to
rusn to one side, and as the boat sank with
the additional weight, a volume of water a
loot or two In depth poured in upon the
lower deck, which was crowded with Das-1
sengers. Instantly the crowd oh both decks
rushed to the opposite side and their weight;
together with the water shipped by the boat.
caused a lurch in the opposite direction.
Then it was that the disaster occurred. The
side of the boat' sunk in the water to the
depth of two feet, and while the crowd on
the lower deck was straggling to save them
selves from slipping down into the river,'
the stanchions supporting the upper deck
suddenly gave Way, and the whole struc
ture With its load of human: beings came
down on those who were below. The Bceoe
that followed cannot be described.' The
boat continued to settle on its side,' deeper
into the water; and the water taking with
it many of the passengers who were stunned
by the fall ; of the upper ' deck' and were
therefore unable to help themselves, while
many- were precipitated into ; the river
unhurt. v -
Twenty-tws more bodies were recovered
to-day from under; the lower deck of the
vessel, making about two hundred in all
recovered. It is ndf-' known how many
more, if any, are losfO Almost all business
is at a stand-still and crowds line the streets
discussing the sad calamity. A solemn'
stillness prevails in the city; flags are at
half mast and the bella are tolling.
London, Ont., May 25. Up to the
present-time, 10:30 P. M.. 233 bodies have
been recovered. It is believed that there
are several yet beneath the wreck.
Arrangements have been made at the

The accident was certainly due to gross
