The President Chas. N. Hunter
Esq., after a few preliminary re
marks gave out the hymn "Blow
ye, the trumpet," which was sung
with a great deal of effect and pathos
by the vast Congregation.
After the singing Rev. Louis Ed
wards offered up prayer. The proc
lamation of Ex President Lincoln
' was read in an admirable manner
by Mr. Joseph C. Price, after which
Mayor Whitaker and Col. I. J.
Young delivered appropriate ad
dresses. Attorney Gen. Hargrove
and Hon. J. H. Harris were the
orators of the day, and these.gentle
men acquitted themselves with
great credit.
The following resolutions were

We do not doubt but that these
men are a part of an organized
band that have been committing
depredations in this and other
places in Norlh Carolina for the
last few months. It is to be hoped
that the severest penalty of the law
will be enforced against them.

We are glad to learn that the prop

Christmas Day. We have heard
many complaints of disorder in the
city on Christmas day. We think
the great oversight was in nt hav
ing a large extra police force on du
ty. We know that on such "Occa
sion it is a hard matter to guard
against riots and disturbances in a
town the size of Raleigh ; but then
it seems that the city government
might have taken extra precaution
for any emergency thatmightexist.
In justice to Chief of Police King,
and officer Crossan we take pleas
ure in savins: 'that we witnessed
their exertions on one occasion to
keep order, and they did the best
they could under the circumstances.
We trust our city authorities will
not allow another public holiday to
pass witnout taKing precautionary
measures to prevent such scenes as
disgraced our city a portion of the
time during the late holidays. We
learn that Mayor Whitaker was
sick on Christmas day and his nec
essary absence may in a measure ac
count for the want of prompt action
on the part of some of his police.
Wake Superior Court. This
Tribunal commenced its session in
the Court House in this city on
Monday last, Judge Watts presi

was as usual plain and to the point.
We learn that the Criminal Dock

sume the entire session of the court.

hat there isla llebtbt jDf Internal

can boast of more efficient and gen

about his office is as regular as clock
work. Iassiteris always at work,
Betts continually . bowing and
smiling ; and Thompson steady,
serious and in earnest, is always
ready, willing and anxious to dis
charge every duty incumbent upon
him; .We do not intend to dispar
age any other gentleman when we
say, that in securing the services of
H'O. Thompson, Esq., Col. Young
did but justly appreciate the sups

manly bearing of one of the best in
formed Revenue men in the State.
