Our readers were informedsome months
since, that many of the friends of Colonel
Paine in this place, had it in contempla
tion, to show their appreciation of his gal
lant services, by some suitable public de
mpnstration. The presentation of a pair
of silver pitchers, was finally resolved on,
and we are happy to be able to state, that
the pitchers aru now in this place. They
are extremely beautiful, chaste and rich;
and are the more appropriate, because of
their great durability.
They will soon be delivered to Colonel
Paine in Raliegh, and our townsmen
Messrs. Wm. A. Wright, Thos. D. Meares
and Robt. W. Cowan have been selected
to perform .the grateful task of presenting
them. Wil. Com.
