RICH FOR A MOMENT.
The British si ip Biitanuia was wrecked
off tin- coast of Umiil, mid hud mi board u

the hoiie of saving some id iheni, it nmnlier ;
of barrel were brought on deck, but the
I vessel went to pieces hi fast that I lie only
I ,(p,. for jf,. was in taking at once to the
I . i i . - I
boat. The last boat wait about to push
oft", when a young midshipman went bark
to ate if any Oiie Slill wis ou board. To Ilia
surprise, there sat a man on deck with a
hatchet in his hand, with which he had
brokeuopett several of . the c.tka, the coasdwnt l( fmf ,. ln..rv
tents of which he was now I. aping up iko u i,,..,,,, ; It ,,,,, ',
.ini.iii u, in
"What are you doing there T" -shouted
the youth. "Don't you know the ship i.

"The shiri may go," said tin; Ir an ; 4T

His icmoiislrarices were answered on
by another flourish of the hatchet, and Ii
was ,ft to Ins fate.
We should count1 such a person a mud
man, hut he has too many imitators. Men
seem dele mined to die rich, at all hazards
Least of all i i-ks do they count the chance
of losing the soul in the struggle, at any
luotnotit at all. And yet the only riches
) we can hue; to our bosom wiin joy, m our
I dying hour, are riches of grace through
j Jesus Chi ist, which wc must make ours
I before the daik hour comes. Oh! how
rich have many died in their garrets and
huts, while kings and princes have entered
on the other life more destitute than beg
gars. Who wr aid not rather choose to be
rich for eternity, th in rich for the Heetiug
moment in whicu the shii

WL DIE DAILY.
We miss something today that wc bad
yesterday. Some familiar and glad vital
ity is no more with us, nor can we call P
back. It has ceased to live. What we
were in childhood wc are not now, and can
be no wore. Our youth is dead dead
ami gone Our maturity may have per
ished. Where is the volatile plattle, tin
bill lei fly chasing exuberance of irrespon
sible life, the schoolday relish of sport ,'
Where the hey-dav ofyouth its ambitons,
hopes, loves 7 Whei' , f W have come to
our "threescore and It;..," is the vascul n
energy of middle lib the will of iron, the
lionlike courage, the muscle of steel J The)
have all died. Death is no new thine; to
us, but a common place. We h ive see,
ourselves perish atid fall away, until we
cease to take notice.
As time is all the while dyitifrj so then is
life. The friendship of l ist year is as dead
as the flowers of the same period, yester
day's, expectation, the very vitality of our
heart, lies buried in-day in tin- tomb of de
li at. The taste that admires this or that
just now, will be soon off ,o In ing us no
more joy. Wedie daily.
Hat we ate also I om daily. These dis
solutions are compensated by births, births
into yet gieater anil nobler life. The true
s nils gaiii more than ihey lose. The seeds
decay; tin fresh shoots come. Hopes die,
but hope never; while the plan ol lis enis
lence is mom elevated, the temper of its
life is sernuer and gladder. Loves end,
but love is perennial. .Muscle is exchanged
for mind, and will for grace. If, m many
ways, what we- once were is gone; so, in
more ways, what we once were is come 10
us. Death reigns, but life more abundant
ly. And onr song, in the very face of all
this decay, if we live truly, should be in
the jub laul mayor key, and not the dole
ful sounds. Let us, rather, chant the song
of our many births Irom our first birth,
and s.-y of death it has been "swallowed
up in victory."
Atio'her of the advertising "attomies"
in divorce1 suits has been distinguishing
himself. A certain man of this city had
a ft iend whom he was nlwav s asking to
bis house, nnd in whom lm had "every con
fidence." The friend was in the habit of
taking bis host's wife to the theatre, and
before very long the husband found out
that his domestic relations were not quite
as they should be. Friend ami wife had
alike betrayed hiir. Hu-incss afterward
took him to California, and while he was
absent ihe wife and her paramour laid a
plot for obtaining a decree of divorce
against him. The "advertising attorney"
was ot couiser the very man for the dirty
woik. lie soon furnished accusation, evi
dence and witnesses, an accommodating
Jttdge prmimrnced the decree of separa
tion, and the woman murricd her accom
plice. Wheri an inquiry was subsequent
made, it was ascertained that the attorney's
evidence was false from legiiiuing to end,
and that all his witnesses committed pi r-
jury. Again we ask, is it not time that
this infamous traffic was stopped ? It
could not be carried on at till without the
connivance of the Judges, for they would
"mark down" the advertising attorney,
and carefully sift every case he dured to
to bring into Court. Surely, however, the
Judges can afford to give up (bis one source
of profit- They make enongh in other
direction to allow. them to indulge in the
luxury of honesty at least once a week.

Under the auspic s of such men as. I
have mentioned, our institutions sprang
at once into widespread popularity. Its
success was beyond the ep elation s. ot
its most siii giiims friends. The counties
of the Stale, delighted to send to its an
nual gathering, their best and most intel
ligent representatives our citizens ex el ted
themselves to make the Fairs worthy of
North Carolina. Each successive year
witnessed an improvement on its prede
cessor. All clasr.es ol society, tne young
and 1 be old, sedate matrons and blooming
damsels, the rich and t ie p or, flocked to
lea ii lessons of wisdom fiom the exhi
hit mis f our natural products and the
fabrics ot our industry. Different uectious
were brought into fouiili.ir acquaintance :
enterprise stiinhtlod, inventions aroused.
I he best things of one regi n were dis

larger and e'.ronger every year. It was
developed into un institution, widely
kninvn, dearly tin t ished, ulmudiog in
usefulness, inftiiieiicing for good the rer

What was not least in this catalogue of
calamities was the sudden change in the
system of labor. A race, whose fathers'
fat hers had been bondsmen, were lificd in
a day from slavery to freedom The
Ii i owner, who fr in childhood had been
accustomed In despotic power over his de
pi'tidauts, found himself confronted with
ih unaccustomed task of suddenly ileal-

ses, some ol which were seemingly acci
dental, other the result of mistaken poli
cy. Never b fore bid investments so
heavy been mule in artificial raauures.i
Tlm h gh prices of 1866 had lirgely ex
tended the culture of cotton, while the
ar a devoted to breadstuffs was diminish
ed. The Autumn of 1 867 developed an ex
traordimiry fall in the price of this staph'
so that the umWttteate planter found
himsalf overwhelmed by aj combin
ation of misfortunes, entirely unprc
precedented, which no foresight could
provide against and iu no case was able
to avert, never before had a return so
meagre followed the farmer's labor.
Then by a curiout Derversitv which
i . . i . .
baffled the most astute political economist,
not in the history of cotton culture, had
the stnple'commauded a price so Insignifi
cant in the proportion to the cost. The
ind ited labor market and excessive pur
chase of artificial manures, swelled the
expenses ot raising tin; crop to a punt
above the experience of the oldest cultiva
tor. Moreover, in all the dreary cata
logue .J' revenue exactions, there cannot
be found so bnormous a tax on the labor
of the agriculturalist as was levied on cut
on in the year of which I speik. The
H-'brews, under the ancient theocracy,
judged it no hardship, perhaps to pay
ooe-tenlh of their income, because the
tithe was devoted to the combined service
of Church and State. This cotton tax
being, in that year, two-tenths of tbe
gross proceed of the farm, lor the State
alone, doubled the Heaven Imposed trib
ute nf t I f Jews. To crown these multi
plied evils, the poveity and want of cred
it of the unfortunate victims, rendered
the ui more unable to bear their reverses,
t .in wneu in ih o'deii times, the deficits
I one year wei made good from the ac
cumulation ol thoso which preceded it.
The disasters of the cotton planters
were paralleled by those of the tobacco
and corn growers, llanufact urine and
mining and other industries, and profes
-ions, all of whieh are supported by agri- !
culture, h id their own Insse to encounter ,

and the jthcr ouicers, especially of o ir :
very aetive Corresponding Secretary, who
seems to have the muscles of Hercules
and the winged feet of Mercury, and of
our collectors of funds, who have p. i lm m
ed their thankless office with the samo
zeal and success which in honorable trade
have enabled them to build lofty stores on
i be streets around our Market Square, and
to those fair ladies who have cheerfully
lent a helping hand, in the decoration and
arrangement of Floral Hall, I will say,
that wo have done what we could to re
vive an institution, which wo hope will
be of such signal service in advancing tha
iuduatrwl am in Xorili Carolina. The

of fence, all ot lumber, whose color, fresh
and saffron, .-hows that a law days ago it
was standing untouched and greeu, in the
stalely ping fore'- of Johnetnn, or tho
shady Vales of the Dark Corner of Wake,
arfe some evidence that we have not been
idle. We began our task under many
disadvantages, with not a few discourage
ments. Our grounds had become an open
common w here stray cattle graced. Our
buildings were filled with a numerous and
untidy tenantry. Floral Hall bad been
torn down and scattered to the four winds
nl heaven. Every vestige of ear track
had become obliterated Even the title
of our laud bad reverted by the conditions
j "f the grant to the city of Ualeigh. Worse
than all, interest in the Society seemed to
nave tadetl Ironi the minds of men, and
our Treasury wus bnrren of fund.
Thanks to the kindliest of our City
Fal hers, and to the generosity of the citi
zens ot Ualeigh, the title to our grounds
has been again secured, and they have
been prepared tor whatever articles
thy of exhibition may be offered. While
thete will bo no lack of objects of interest
at this beginning of a new era, we ven
ture the confident hope, that hereafter our
march will ever be upward and onward.
0 njtite has er.'at i aMirula n ages.
We have blessings of the earth and the
skies of the field and the forest. Neither
tornadoes, nor earthquakes, nor bitter
cold, nor tonid beat ; neither caterpillar,
nor locust, ever turn our willing landscapes
into a blighted wilderness. Above us the
-un sheila his genial rays, around us play
health bearing breezes; from the ground
spring die numerous varieties of the veg
etable, kingdom, useful to man. Beneath
us ure the choicest minerals aud metallic
ores. F..t cai tie browse on the perennial
grasses which eloiho the summits of our
lofty mountains, while luscious fruits ii
pen without fear of frost. On the rich
lands of our eastern counties grow rank
great corn crops, which calls to mind tho
famed fertility of the valley of the Nile.
Never do the boll worm or caterpillar or
inundations completely destroy the gold
bearing plant in the broad fields of our
cotton belt. Intelligent industry seldom
f .ils to reap rich rewards in the grain and
tobacco lands of our middle counties. Our
rivers a they rush iu rapid descent from
their sources in our mountain defiles, and
break headlong over the barriers of the
primitive rocks, supply water power illim
itable. Fuel under the ground and above
the ground is accessible and cheap. What
ever may contribute to our comfort or
luxury, whatever may aid ns iirthe great
s i niggle lo subdue the forces of nature,
our generous mother will amply furnish
us, if wu make an honest effort to obtain
hem. Give us intelligent industry gui
ded by science nnd few Stutes will sur
pass X i ili Carolina in the rare of whieh
wealth and refinement and hanpmcss are
Il is to incite to this industry and cre
ate or quicken this intelligence, thot we
are assembled together now. "As iron
sharpeueth iron, so does a man the coun
tenance of his friend." Dy our annual
gatherings, improved breeds of animals
will be Mora widely distributed, new pro
cesses of culture made know n, our domin
ion over tho material world extended by
new application of machinery, mental rust
will be rubbed off, faults detected and rec
tified, old erroneous ideas exploded. In
a wonl in the largest sense we will edu
cate one another.
Let us then determine that each annual
Fair shall be hereafter greater than its
predecessor. Let ua seek 10 extend tbe
popularity and influence of our Society.
Let us not be discouraged by beginnings
smaller than we hoped fot. Let us aim
at a grander success and more abundant
usefulness. Let us'follow the counsels of
America's greatest poet. Let us not
''look mournfully into the p-ist." Let us
"wisely improve the present." "Let us
like true and undaunted Americans," go
forth to meet the shadowy future, without
fear and with a manly heart."
