The speaker, Mr. Robinson, tak
ing the floor, Mr. Jones, of Cald
well, in the chair, said he thought
the bill was precipitate and had he
been out of the chair on yesterday,
he would have voted against the
bill. His feelings for the universi
ty were of the kindest nature, for
with delicacy, he was connected by
blood with the distinguished man
who was at the head of that institu
tion so long and whoe name would
never fade from the hearts of all
true North Carolinians, but he was
equally opposed to the bill as now
amende! Ac.
Mr. MeCieheo moved to lay the
bill on the table as amended.

Gov.Kemper Visits Washington and
Calls Upon President Grant
Washington, Feb. 12. Govern
or Kemper, of Virginia, being in
Washington on business, made a
call of courtesy upon President
Grant to-day, remaining at the Ex
ecutive Mansion not more than fif
teen or twenty minutes, it was
some time ago stated that Colonel
Mosby thad pre-arranged an inter
view between these gentlemen, but
the Governcr says there is no truth
in the report, and that he called
merely to pay his respects to the
chief magistrate the same as any
other citizen of the United States,
and with no political object in
view. The Governor to-night in
conversation with friends who
called upon him. at Willard'a hotel,
spoke of the pleasure the visit af
forded him. The President receiv
ing him inaspirlt of marked friend
liness and courtesy, and in the
course of conversation expressed his
views deliberately as if weighing
well his words, which left a favora
ble impression on the Governor's
As the interview was private, the
subject of the conversation cannot
be explicitly stated, but can only
be inferred by the Governor's own
free utterances to-night that he and
his political friends in Virginia,
stand on a broad conservative plat
form which he says gives all the
States co-equal rights as members
of the Union, that they may dis
charge all their duties and restore
perfect peace and reconciliation to all
parts of the country. They will sup
port every body that supports that
platform which thegovernor framed
and which was endorsed by the
people of Virginia, and they will
oppose, he further says, every
body who opposes tne conservative
and harmonizing principles therein
expressed. The governor will re
turn to Virginia to-morrow morn
ing. The navigation commissioners
having concluded their business
have adjourned to meet at Fvans

about to leave for Athens to assume
duties as Minister to Greece. A. T.
A. Torbert, Secretary of Legation,
is Read's successor here.
Many years ago Mr. Abram
Dodge, of the town of Ipswich,
Massachusetts, owned a beautiful
horse, which was the pet of the
family. He was admired by all
who knew his playfulness and
good qualifications. In the sum
mer it was Mr. Dodge's habit oc
casionally to have a frolic with his
horse in his barn-yard, and then
let him out alone, and he would go
to the river, which wa3 about one
third of a mile distant, where he
would bathe, then go to a common
and roll on the grass, then with
the freedom of air start for his
home. His stable was renovated
for him while he was gone, and
his breakfast put in his crib. If
he met his master he would show
some coltish pranks, bound for the
stables, pull out the wooden pin
that fastened the door withnis
teeth, and rush to the manger
where he expected to find his food.
One night the horse was stolen
from the stable.
tion of sixteen years Mr. Dodge
was at the tavern when a man
drove a horse up to the door. Mr.
Dodge at once recognized the horse,
and he told the driver his reasons
for beleaving it to be his; the man
told of whom he bought the horse,
and said that he had owned the
horse for several years Mr. Dodge
claimed his horse, and it was agreed
if the horse would, on being taken
to his old stable go through the
habit of bathing, rolling on the
grass, and pulling the pin from the
stable door as above described, that
Mr. Dodge should have him. When
the horse was led out into his old
yard he reviewed the premises for
a moment, then started for his old
bath tub, then for his green towel
on the common, then to his old

Sixty-five years ago to-day began
one of the -tales which history de
lights to tell. A life dawned which
was to mark an era in the world's
progress, Its origin was obscure
and poor. None could think, the
day it came, that it was to bo so
great. Its lot was hard. Its growth
was sturdy. In the strong school
of toil it grew in honesty, sobriety
and patience, in independence and
modesty, in kindness and humility.
It clung to these. It was reverent
and aspiring. Whatever might
happen, it would not be base.
Through no selfish ambition, but
by suffrage of fellow-men, the love
and honor of a few of whom it had
secured, it was summoned to our
country's supreme place. There it
was appointed to stand, the centre
and guide of the nation, while the
nation's life and the worm's pro-

Drar Sir I received your favor of the 3d iust., asking my opinion of the
"Bradley Patent Enamel Paint," for which you are Agent. It affords mo pleas
ure to add my testimonial with many others, of its value and thorough adaptation
to the Rural Districts especially. Having a practical experience of thirty years in
preparing plans and building with all branches .of Artisans and Mechanics and
used most of the material for painting, I was induced to try " llRADLEY
PATENT ENAMEL PAINT," owing to its portabilility, being mixed of all
shades and quantities to suit. I applied it for inside and outside work and found
it dried thoroughly covered the surface perfect and dried with a beautiful Enamel
luster, and covered twenty square yards two coats. I'have recommended its use
to others in the city of Washington and lower Maryland, with equal satisfaction
and good results. Mixing colors by ordinary Mechanics is not often done to the
satisfaction of proprietors and this Paint" being already mixed all desired shades
and frequently to suit, renders it more desirable in "Rural Districts." I cheer
fully recommend its general use and feel assured that all who use it will be satis
fied that it is all that is claimed' Durable, Beautiful and Economical."

Mr. C. P. Knight Dear Sir : It affords me much pleasure to say to you tha
the Bradley Patent Enamel Paint far exceeds my expectations in economy, beau
ty, and I have every reason to believe in durability. More than twelve months
since, I painted the roof of my house (Mansion House) with the Bradley Patent
Enamel Paint, and I was so well pleased with it, I determined to paint the fronts
of the " Hotel," and I am most happy to say that it gives me perfect satisfaction.
In conclusion, I will say, if this testimonial will be of any advantage to you, you
are at liberty to use it.
