These New York swindlers send their
circulars all over the country (as the
tfocoD has frequently warned its
Teadeis), addressed "confidential" to
the man who receives it, and inform
ing him that for a stocrtl sum of
ihouey he tan buy a lot of counter
foil motley which is called "green
foods''. When aiiy mau is fool or
VHscal enough to attempt to buy
these "green goods' , he goes to New
Vork, gives the swindler his good
iidi&y and the swiudler counts out
V him a lot of genuine greenbacks,
but by a slight of hand movement
delivers instead a package of saw
fet or other worthless 6tuff, which
the tictiiu canies away thinking it is
a package of the money that he saw
A' good deal of this species of swin
dling has been done recently. One
of the latest cases was one wherein
the victim was a man named Peikiu
rrom South Carolina. He received
one of the ''confidential" circulars,
tud carried $400 in good money to
New York, and received therefor
$4,000 (as he believed) from a fellow
43alliug himself Rogers, but before he
lfcft the city he discoveied that his
package only contained saw-dust.
Thereupon he had Rogers arrested on
a charge of larceny. Iu his examina
tion Pel kins stated that he was a
deacon of his church and a county
commissioner, and no doubt at home
ne was considered a highly respect
able citizen, and yet here he was
paying $400 for what he believed to
be $4,000 of counterfeit money ! Wt

The Senate passed two bills, a few
days ago, which we are plea;ed to
know were opposed by Seuator Vance.
We refer to the bills granting a pen
feion cf $2,000 a year to the widow of
bleu. John A. Logan and Gen. Fran
cis P. Blair. In the first place these
Widows were not in actual need of a
pension, either one of them beiug
worth much more than the majority
of our people. There are thousands
bf widows of Union soldiers, who are
much poorer and who roceive a pen
sion of only a few dollars a month.
If the government is disposed to give
away its "surplus'', then in the name
df common humanity let it be given I
to those who most need it ! Gen.
lliogau may have been the brave offi
cer during the war, as claimed by
nis friends, but no moie so than
thousands of other Union soldieis
whose widows are now struggling for
a livelihood. And besides, he has
held, since the war and up to the
time of his death, some lucrative
Office nearly all the time. Year after
year he was a Representative in Con
gress aud then a Senator, and draw
ing all the while a salary of $5,000 a
year. And now that he is dead, a
pension of $2,000 a year is tc be
given his widow. We think that
Senator Vance's constituents will
approve his vote against this pension,
even if he was in a small minority.
We believe that the granting of such
pensions is wrong in principle and
without constitutional authority.
We have received a copy of the
aunual report of tbe Superintendent
of the North Carolina Insane Asylum
at Raleigh, and are pleased to learn
therefrom of the good work done by
this great State charity. Although
there has been alarger daily average
number of patients under treatment
than in any previous year, yet the
mortality has been less than usual,
and the Institution is in a better con
dition for the health, care and - cure
6f its inmates than it has been since
the war. The number of patients
now under treatment amounts to
292 j and yet the utmost capacity of
the Institution had been supposed
to be only 250.
The total number of admissions
since the openiDer of the Atsvlum.
- v - W
just 32 years ago, amounts to 1,892.
Of these 1,043 were males and 849
were femaleB. The total number of
discharges has been 1,600, of which
603 were considered cured, 260 much
improved, 335 unimpioved and 501

and exports per anuutn are clustered

Carolina is on the water front of this

0. As the mountains opposite the
southern Chesapeake have been re
cently pierced by uuiroads the build
iug of a great city somewhere on its
waters is in the near future. But
even it the prediction be not verified,
New York is now the second com- I
merciai city in the . world. On Man j
hattau island alone there were sixty-1
seveu millions of dollars worth of
new buildings last year. Countiug
Brooklyn, Jersey City and othei
places, there are clustered here al
ready about two and three quarter
millions of people, with wealth be
yond conception. Between here and
New York are other populous ciiicp,
rapidly growing, so that it will not
be lout; before the lauds of Noith

in 24 hours of New York should now
be worth $100 per acre. They have
not only the advantage of a ready
maiketfor their productions but t bey
are in close proximity to the store
houses aud manufactories whence
they get their supplies.
What are the disadvantages of
1. The presence of slavery exclu
ded men unaccustomed or averse to
that institution. After the great
civil war the uncertainties of Recon
struction and the bitterness of paity
feeling have retarded the influx of
northern men. It will not be long
before these disturbing elements will
have passed away.
2. Some unaccustomed to colored
labor do not like to settle where ne
groes are a large portion of the pop
ulation. To this there is a sufficient j
answer, fii Bt, that many counties are j
largely white and in" the eastern
counties the negro element is supe
rior to that iu the South because for
many years it had been the custom
to sell to that region the turbulent
and viciouB slaves. And lastly, the
proportion of the colored must rapid
ly diminish because they have no
accessions fiotn immigration.
Want of schools is urged as an ob
jection, but that does not result from
hostility on the part of our people
but frora sparsenetss of populatien
and poverty. When settlers come
schoois will spring up.
3. High railroad freight will dis
appear when our farmers demand it.
The railroad companies will lower
their rates from policy whenever
far m products increase in bulk.
4. All these obiectiona to North
Carolina are remediable. Wo come
lastly to the most serious, viz : That
our lands are not naturally fertile.
As to tins, President Battle con
tended that if our lands are not nat
urally rich, they are cheap aud easily
made rich, so that the total cost wiii
be only half or one-third of the cost
of land at the 6ame distance from
New York in auy other direction. He
quoted from a letter of a friend iu
Kansas City to the effect that the
lands in western Missouri and east
Kansas bring thirty to sixty bushels
of corn to the acre, and cost $25 to
$50 per acre. He asked if a North
Carolina farmer should put on his
land the difference between tbe cost
i here and there, our lands would not
produce as much or more.

Our Washington Letter.
From our Kesrular Correspoudent.j
i Washington. Jan. 27 th, 1888.
Congress has had before it this
week a good deal of miscellaneous
matter, such as: the Pacific l ail road
investigation ; the delay over the Con
gressional Library building ; the Jack
son, Miss., outrage resolution, and
the Thoobe-Carlisle contest, iu which
the Speaker's title to his seat was se
cured by a bare quorum
The most important appointments
made by the President during the
week were Marshal McDonald for
Fish Commissions; Mr. Hoge,of Va.,
for District Attorney, aud Mr. Ross
of Washington for our new Post
master. Bv these appointments a
long gou3' is over. 1 here were a
hundred or more aspirants to the
last two offices mentioned, and the
selections made seem lo be quite sn-'
isfactory to the public.
There is enthusiastic interest now
among the Piohibitiou circies of tLia
city as well hs throughout the coun
try, and notable conceit of action, in
the effort to drive the liquor traffic
from the District of Columbia. Pe
titions to this effect have poured in
to Congress from every State and
Teiritory, and the counter petitions
circulated by the liquor men of the
District aic something curious and
even ludicrous, I may say, from their
lack of sense and lornii.
From his pulpit a Washington
Minister s.dd, last Sunday, "these
men plead for personal liberty in the
conduct of their business: they ask
for personal liberty that they may
enslave your tons and deprive them
of their liberty. They also raise the
cry that perjury, fraud and social cor
ruption would follow in the truck of
prohibition. Thiv, he said, "makes
us think of the poetical figure of
narau weepiu? ior souls tnat are
On the same dav the Honor ti ftftin
was vigorously attacked from several
of our city pulpitf, notably that of the
Vermont-Avenue Christian Church,
and that of the North Carolina
Avenue Church. Mr. Power, the
pastor of the former, like most of the
Washington pastors, is strongly op
posed to high license, classing it as
a cowardly compromise with the
whiskey pui ty. He selected for his
subject. "The Coming Conflict with
the Whiskey Power', and he argued
that there was no regulating the
whu key traffic, that theie iri no al
ternative but total extermination. He
urged prohibition in the District as
the only hope of the rising generation,
aud said tbe cry that prohibition does
not r-i obibit is false, for were prohi
bition ones strongly entrenched on
our r acres the death of tbe whiskev
train.: would quickly follow.
Speaking of the term fanatic, ap
plied to temperance woikers, Mr.
Power stated that the dictionary had
not yet been compiled that would con
tain the word "temperance fanatic'',
"He is not the coming ajan" he said,
"nor the man that is, for we can never
have such a creature. Go as far as
you will ou the track of temperance
and you will never approach within
sight of fanaticism.'' -
As the subject is one of unusual
interest just now I will mention how
another minister presented several
new points iu the matter. He re
garded the present time as a crisis.
To be defeated now meant eternal
defeat for the temperance people of
the country. He said the cry of to
day was for national prohibition. The
District of Columbia is national
ground, and here the fight will be
made that will influence the entire
country. He urged that the example
set here would encourage or discour
age the efforts of all the temperance
people working throughout the coun
try, and that though there were many
hidden evils behind this question,
when prohibitionists once gain the
victory their triumph will be com
plete. Tiie work of the Woman's
lyurisuan .temperance union was
eulogized in the highest teiins, and

A Romantic Marti age.
From th Newtou (N. C ) Euterprlse.
Quite a romantic marriage was cele
brated in New ton last Friday night.
Tne contracting parties were Mr. A.
Hale iind Mrs. Elizabeth Ferguson,
loth of Charlotte.' The romantic
part about it was that tbU was tbe
second iime this interesting t ereinoin
whs performed for this paticul:ir
pair. They Lad been married about
a year and a half ago, but found out
leLCutlv that the km-:t theu tied was
null and void, and had to be tied'
The circumstances leading up to
this complication were about as fol
lows : About seventeen years ago
Mrs. Ferguson was living in Rowan
county with her first husband, Mr.
John B. Ferguson. One day Mr.
Ferguson, on some pretext or other,
went to Georgia. The wife patiently
looked for his return for a year or
two, and finally heard that he was
dead. After many years of supposed
widowhood she went to live as house
keeper in the family of Mr. A. Hale,
a retired jeweler of Charlotte, who
had moved on a farm he owned in
her neighborhood, on account of the
delicate health of his wife. Mrs.
Hale died, and, about . eighteen
months ago, Mr. Hale married Mrs.
Ferguson. They lived happily to
gether until a short time ago, wheu
it was discovered that Ferguson, after
going to Georgia, had transferred his
affections to another woman, and
was still alive. On this development
steps were at once taken by Mrs.
Ferguson, who had now become ac
customed to the name of Mrs. Hale,
to obtain a divorce, and as Catawba
Court was the first in the district,
proceedings were begun here.
The case came up last Friday, and
on hearing the facts in the case, the
court at once granted to Mrs. Fer
guson an absolute divorce.
Friday night at the Havnes House,
in the presence of Judge Boykin and
several lawyers and friends, Esquire
H. A. Forney re united the pair so
firmly, that no future contingencies
cao separate them, or mar the bappi
nets of their declining years.
They were serenaded by the New
ton Cornet Band, and quite a large
crowd were attracted to the house.
Aud we know there was not one pres
ent who did not feel in sympathy
with the bride and groom over the
happy termination of their trouble.
