In Floral Hall, I there was a vast
throng of strong men and fair women,
which in itself was an exhibit of
which any country might well be
proud. Your correspondent stood
bewildered, as he gazed in astonish
ment at the many beautiful things
the ingenuity of the ladies can sug
gest: and their fikillfnl h pari a o.nn n.
ecute. In that portion presided over
so gracefully by Mrsj J. B. Whitaker,
Jr., we noticed lambrequins, especial
ly one of; straw, hand embroidery,
silk embroidery, banners, pin cush
ions, drawn linen, chereille work,
embroidery slippers and chairs. Some
of these of perfect workmanship. We
noticed some of these of such fine
quality that we were tempted to give
tiATri an..!.! nAv,4?sn 1...
from want of space.
Miss Jennie Wilson, with great
kindness, showed your correspondent
the articles under her care, among
which were noticeable for the fineness
of their execution some hand-painted
lambrequins and patchwork tidies,
afghans, crocheted i quilts and fasci
nators. - j.
It ought not to seem invidious when
we say that those who had paintings
anrl H rrnrin era fj vrTiihif. mm fmrtn.
nate to have had them placed in the
care of Miss Mary i Dewey. To her
your correspondent is indebted for a
very pleasant half hour spent in look
ing at the pictures in her department,
which in number and merit far exceed
anything of the kind ever exhibited
here, which under; the intelligent
direction and description of Miss
Dewey assumed new beauties. The
largest collection was the work of Miss
Kate Galloway of this city, and she
had some fruits painted from nature
that, we could easily believe the tra
dition, birds might peck at. There
were some flowers painted by
Miss Lizzie Kirby, of this city,
that we actually believe we could
detect their fragrance so na
tural were they, I and there was
some crayon work; from casts by
Miss Annie Moore, of this city, which
xo ns seem to inaicate rare taients.
Each of these ladies had other paint
ings and drawings of equal merit per
haps. Then there was a large picture,
'Christmas," by Miss Lena Moore, of
Duplin, and perhaps others, that at
tracted our attention by .their artistic
finish. I ! i
We find our article growing to a
irtnairtorn.Vilo loncth ' and tpa ata nnt
half around the hall. We will reserve
the rest, however, for another day.
Notwithstanding the fearful weath
er, the Fair to-day approached very
tiosr in a rniitwiu I Wa TiplifiVA t,hat
there were at least 3,000 persons on
the grounds, although we have heard
lower estimates put upon the number.
The Davis Cadets; to the number of
180, and Kinsey's school, to tbe num
ber of CO, were there in all their man
liness and loveliness, and added no
little to the attractions of the occasion.
GoiiDSBORO, October 28. :
It is a cause of gratulation that the
managers of the fair association are
able at the close of this, the last day
of the exhibit, to state with a good
deal of confidence 'that the fair has
paid expenses. I T
This, under the circumstances, is a
high compliment to the executive
nVTlif v Aiaa. iMnflamAfi Tf". ia fin. fa
to say that if there had i been favor
able weather this week that this Fair
would have been one of the finest
held in the State, as it is it is a fair of
which our people are justly proud.
The poultry supply would have done
credit to an exhibit of the products of
any people on the globe. The num
ber of articles and their meritorious
quality in this department so taxed
the judges to decide that they had to
adjourn over until to-morrow to com
plete their work, ! i
If there were no praise : to the par
ticularly meritorious; half the incen
tive to success would be gone. With
this view controlling us we cannot
fail to call attention to the fine

They. too. were loyal to their sovereign.
The constitution was but a treaty between
high contracting sovereign parties, without
one atom of sovereignty in itself. Since,

mere attempt of tbe Federal power tp force

them to accept it. .
The world has been told that the people
of the South made war to perpetuate
African slavery. This is false. They did
not create the institution, nor do they now
wish to restore it. The principle for which

Independent, from Mediterranean ports,
which touched at Palermo, a cholera in
ftcted port, brought to New York over
four hundred steerage pesscigers, who
were landed in Brooklyn after a day and a
half detention at quarantine, and hive been
scattered abroad throughout this country.
There had been no infectious disease on
board during the passage of twenty-two
days, and all tbe passengers were well.
Surgeon General Hamilton of the Marine
Hospital service, was to-day interviewed
on this subject, and said: '.'The first infor
mation received here was the receipt of a
New ,York evening psoer of yesterday,
which contained a list of the places where
the immigrants from the steamer had been
sent, j I immediately telegraphed the facta
to tbe health offices at tbe places named,
which I was required to do by Bection 4 of
the act of April 89th, 1878. Responses

have similar information fmm thn hoaiti.
officer of this city, who was advised by me
that two of the Independente's immigrants
had left New York for Washington. As to
the power of tbe government to . re
train : a vessel from an infected port
from entering, I have to say that there
is undoubtedly such authority found in the
act above cited, which requires that regu
lations shall be issued by tho Surgeon Gen
eral oi me marine nospitat Bervico, and
approved by the President." The Doetof
citeu precedents covering the case It is
probable that no further action will be
taken by tbe United States authorities until
a request be made by the local authorities,
as tbe law forbids interference in any man
ner with State quarantines. Consequently
the initial pterin Jnr TTrWl
come from local authorities, when, in their
judgment, the time for such action has ar
rived. Borne .of the telegrams received by Dr.
Hamilton from health offices of distant
cities are couched in very indignant terms.'
The quarantine authorities in New York
have Riven out assurances that no danger is
to be apprehended from the emigrants on
the IndeDendente. and thev dnfpnrl them
selves from criticism directed against them
in the matter of the Independente and

to-night rays: "At a special meeting of
the Quarantine Commissioners this after
noon it was decided to ask tbe Secretary of
tbe Tieasury if ships coming from porta
where cholera prevails cannot be sent back,
it being the opinion that if that power ex
ists, it is now time to enforce it."

Attorney-General Hunt, of Illinois said
that as he and his associates did not yet

he could not say how much time they would
desire. He would like, however, to have
an opportunity given to his associate. Mr
Gnnnell, to speak. The Chief Justice said
that each side would be allowed three hours,
and that Mr. Griooell might speak.
At a quarter past one J. Randolph Tuck

that the action complained of in the Court

that there was a question whether the ac

The Synod of North Carolina has met
in Fayetteville thirteen times since 1813,
when it was organized. It has met an
nually ever since. Of the ministers who
moderated these thirteen sessions all are
aeaaout iour.j ur these Tour three are
Maes and the fourth is so thoroughly
Scotch that he doesn't need the famous
prefix, the Rev. Colin Shaw, who was
born here, but now lives in Duplin county.
The Synod has had but seven Stated
Clerks in its seventy-four years .of life.
The Rev. Colin Mclver was clerk for
Rockingham Rocket: We learn
with peculiar regret that on the night of
the 21st the dwelling of the late Sandy Mc
Millan, Esq., near Laurel Hill in this coun
ty, was consumed by fire, with its contents.
It is supposed the house was robbed and
then fired to obliterate all traces of the vil
lainy. The Chronicle stands among
weeklies as does the Wilmington Star
among dailies primus inter pares. .
The Methodist congregation at this place
have purchased a sweet-toned silver cornet
for the choir. Dr. W. L. Steele will ma
nipulate the new instrument, which is quite
a pleasing addition to the church music.
We do not believe we ever heard of so
many gin acciuenu eetore as are happening
now. It looks as if people who have to
work around gins would use more caution;
there would be fewer accidents. We
have heard of no family so much afflicted
as have been the McMillan and Hailey fami
lies, of this county. Mrs. James L. Hailey.
a daughter of Bandy McMillain, Esq., died
of typhoid fever; then her father, conva
lescing from typhoid fever, was stricken
with heart-disease and died suddenly; then
followed her husband, a victim of the same
dread fever; and now one of the Hailey
children is lingering with the same disease
at the home of its grandmother, Mrs.
Mourning Hailey. three miles from town,
who is herself bed-ridden with rheumatism l
and for years has not been able to use her
limbs. To innreaan tha familo mi.fn.ii.n.
