: But we have said again and again,
that whatever the shortcomings or
mistakes of the President he was a
honest if a very self-willed-man; that
he was giving the country a good
Administration, as .oompared i with
those Administrations that- had pre
ceded it since 1861: that he was
treating the South fair, kind, and
healing sectional wounds as no other
man had done; that he was opposed
to Centralization, to a High Protec
tive Tariff and to other abominable
Republican tendencies and dogmas,
which are great political virtues, and
. I' - - j -
that he was to be preferred to any
Republican in the land.
The Stab will give President
Cleveland a fair hearing always: it
will treat him with justice and will
Hustam him in all efforts to give the
country a genuine j Democratic Ad
ministration, knowing do section,
and lower taxes i and relieve the peo-
pie of unnecessary! burdens. The
Stab will do all within its power to
elect Mr. Cleveland if he is the nom
inee of the Democratic . party in
18S8. as he will no doubt be if he
lives. It will do this without etui-
tifying itself, recalling criticism
'modifying language," "eating
crow, or performing any other act
that would be inconsistent, disingen
nous or untrue to its convictions
and devotion to the principles of the
Democratic party, jit will T support
Mr. Cleveland because he is infinite

in the world, and because be much

for which the Stab contends than all

We lay before our readers to-dar
some extracts from' the literary ad.
dress of Senator Vance before Wash

of May last. The difficulty is in se
lecting, We undertook as we read
to mark such passages as we would
like to leprodaoe, being unable to
give all.' .When we "had ' gone
through with the pleasant task we
found we had r marked enough to
make, a half dozen or more columns
that are "mighty good, reading" for
North Carolinians. . We' give a st-
lection or two to-day, and we shall
be glad to give other extracts here
after, if able to do so. It is . a very
scribible ppeecb throughout. It? is
more than this, it is wise and timely.
It is the address of a' statesman i of
reading, of observation and of large
experience in public affairs; There
are somo quiet touches of humor and
some felicities) of diction, but the
prevailing excellence is wise thought.

consent, to print in book

the "Scattered Nation " his recent
lecture in Boston, his address before
th Southern Historical Society, his
address from which we copy to day,

Star "Foxes Climbing Trees" I
can state that during the years 1858
and 1859, I frequently hunted with
some friends of mine living along
Rockfish creek, Duplin countv. N. C
and once and .awhile a fox chase was
arranged between us. On one of these
occasions, Mr. James Leonard New
kirk and myself rode out at early
break of day, his hounds, of which he
kept quite a number, with us. Cross
ing a small creek adjoining Newkirk's
farm, the hounds ahead of us com
menced to trail at once, and within
the time of fifteen minutes we knew
from the barking of the hounds that
they had treed something. - We rode
up to the 8 pot, where we found all
the hounds gathered around a small
pine and looking: ud into the tree.
there was the f Ox ! We shook the
tree, and. the fox lost bold, fell down
and the"liounds took charge of him.
We rode back to the farm disgusted
With our easy victory.
One instance,where a fox was treed
after a long chase, is the following:
Mr. Beni. Npwkirlr (raicrh.Urr- rst I
I. L. N.) and myself rode out on the
23d of October, 1858, (or in 1859. I for
get which, but it being my birthday I
recollect this hunt well) early in the
morning; his dogs numbering of ten or
twenty with us. The hounds struck
a trail first at about 8 o'clock, on the
edge of Widow Pennell's Bay, and the
chase was continued for several honrs.
At about 10 o'clock a. m.,.we, having
headed the hounds, kept watching
and listening whereto the run would
go next. Looking about and keeping
quiet, we saw the: chased fox come
out of the undergrowth and stand on

He cut out sionrnvB mmin intn v.

hounds in lively fashion. They fol

chase .then commenced and lasted
till about 1 o'clock p. m,, when we
heard from the yelping of the hounds
that our fox was treed. We found
him in a pine sapling with all the
hounds around, and shook him down,
when the dogs made havoc with him.
The place where this fox was treed is
a swampy bay near the school house
at Harrell-s Store (formerly New Han

These are the only two instances
during my hunt, : where the foxes
were treed, although I chased a great
many formerly. "

A correspondent ot the Star seeks in
formation ia regard to "climbing foxes. '
He sajs: ' -..
I had been informed duiiag my last visit
io t umingion mat me roxes or in la por
tion of the countiy bad a singular habit,
when closely pressed by the hounds, of
taking to a tree not merely jumping on a
log or stump, but actually climbing trees to
the height of fifteen I and twenty feet and
upon going to the Noith again, I happened
ui mcauoo me iaci io aome or my irienas,
who immediately set me down as a fabri
cator of the first water, and one - even took
the trouble to explain that by the nature of
theaaitntl t&is ws ! i JipossiDle. But as I
bad been informed of the before said "fact"
by gentlemen whose veracity was not to be
doubled, I ttuck to my point, and was
consequently considered beyond all hope.
I how appeal to 5 on: as the. one who can
give those noble hunters of the festal anise
eed bic a tin" on the subiect of "climb
ing foxes;" but if it should be beyond your
experience please be eo kind as to print this
in your valuable paper that some one who
has actually seen the feat, may answer by
toe same means
The "Master of the Hounds" or any
mirabrr of the Wilmington Fox Club can
prcbibly set the mind of our correspondent
at rest on the question propounded above.
It is a well-known fact hereabouts that
foxes when closely pushed by well-trained
dogs do climb trees, but it is at the be
ginning of the hunt, and seldom, if at all
that a fox takes a jjree after being j trailed
for some time. This is stated On the
authority of one who often follows th?
hounds, and knows whereof he speaks.

writes to the Times, protesting against its
Circulation of the statement from Rome,
that the "Irish mission bf Mgr. Persico and
Mgr. Qualdi had been revoked at the in
stance of Cardinal Manning and Arch
bishop Walsh of v Dublin,', and branding
the latter two as active promoters of Sepa
ratist intrigues." The Cardinal says:' "I
gladly unite myself with Archbishop
I Walsh. He is but slightly known in Eng
land, except in the descriptions of those
who are fanning the flames of animosity
between England and Ireland. I am known
in England both to the Ministers of the
Crown and to the leaders of the opposition,
and I will leave it to them, who well know
my mind, to answer for me. and I, who
know the mind of ArchbiBhop Walsh will
answer for him. We are; neither intriguers
ner separatists." - ' ,
In conclusion the Cardinal says: "If,
sir, I have written with unusual warmth, I
confess that I hold that resentment is some
times a duty, and this is such a time, when
your words touch our highest responsibility
and inflame more and more the heated con
tentions between two peoples, whom -Justice
and truth would still bind in peace and
unity. I ask you, sir, as an act of justice,
to give this as prominent a place in the
Times as you Lave unwarily given to the
unhappy imputations." j
I The Times, in an editorial, excuses the
first charge which Cardinal Manning com
plains of by saying that jl had simply re
produced tne Reiiter Telegram Company's
dispatch from Rome. It assures the Car
dinal that it bas no desire to meet the
other charge by either gloss or evasion. ; It
fwould judge Archbishop Walsh by bis own
written and spoken words. He was, . In
the very strict sense of the word, a sepa
