This body held its semi annual meeting
in Pittsborough, commencing on Wednes
day evening; the 4th inst., and closing on
Saturday. Most of its sessions were held in
the handsome little Presbyterian Church
recently erected in that town, through the
Methodist 'and Babtist Churches Were
kindly tendered for the purpose. The citi
zens of the town, of all denominations, dis
played a commendable degree of hospi
tality in entertaining the Presbytery, and
it was bestowed in the most pleasant and
agreeable manner. .
In addition to the ordinary business of
the Presbytery, the Rev." Mr Logan, of
Clarksville, Va., after due examination,
was ordained as an Evangelist ; and the
Rev. James McNeill was installed as Pas
tor of the Pittsborough church.
The Rev. John A. iGretter addressed
the Presbytery very eloquently, urging
their hearty co-operation in his effort to
raise a permanent fund for the Caldwell
Institute. y Butno question was presented
in relation to the Institute requiring the
action of Presbytery.

About half past 12 o'clock, on Monday
mornIng lasVour citizens were alarmed
al on such occasions. The wooden tene
ment on . Payelteville Street, occupied by
W.jA. Depkin, as a Boot and Shoe Store,
was found to be in a blaze, but not to such
an extent that it might not have been
promptly suppressed did we possess the
most ordinary water facilities. In a verv
few moments, the destroying element ex.
tended itself, m one direction, to the resi
dence of Win. White, Esq.. and the City
1 ost Office connected therewith, and in
the opposite, to the Confectionary Store
of Mr. Gnffice and the Saddlerv Estab
lishment of C. Y. D. Hutchins, Esq., and
to many small wpoden buildings in the
vicin,ty-all of which were entirely con
sumed. The flames now spread so rapid
ly as to render any efforts to check them
entirely impotent. The large and splen
did brick structure on the corner of Fav
etteville and Hargett streets, (in which
were .Harding's Clothing Rooms, Creech's
Merchandize Store, the N. C. Mutual In-
the Odd Fellows' Lodge.) the new and
beautiful building of Mr. Fentress above
the Post Office, the row of small shops on
the north side of Hargett St. (with the ex
ception of Mr. HollemanS.) and several
brick buildings occupied asStoreson Salis
bury street, were in turn consumed, be
lore the devastating flames spent them
selves. Their further progress up Fay
etteville street was arrested by the timely
blowing-up of Mr. Roulhac's store.
It is impossible, at present, to form any
correct estimate of the entire loss of prop
erty. Independently of the positive injury
sustained by the fire, great damage, was
undoubedtly done by breakage.and the oth
er modes of destructing incident to such
occasions. We subjoin, as nearly as we
are able to compile one, a list of ihe suf
ferers from the fire :

Hargett St. loss estimated at something
like SIO'OO. 6
Seldom has the eye witnessed so awful
a spectacle as that large building in one
concentrated blaze, with serpents of flame
hissing from every window and a vast col
umn stretching upwards from the roof.
The goods, furniture and effects of the
stores and office in it were saved, but are,
we imagine, more or less injured.
Mrs. Stuart. The Dwelling occupied
by Mr. White, with the Post Office ; and
the Shoe Store occupied by Mr. Depkin.
Nearly everything in House and Office
saved. No insurance, and loss between

Mr. Depkin, we are sorry to learn, lost his
entire stock of goods. His loss is estima
mated at from 800 to $1000.
These buildings were remarkable for
having heretofore almost miraculously es
caped several fires, owing, mainly, to the
exertions of Mrs. Stuart, herself. Upon
no one has this awful visitatian fallen more
heavily than upon this estimable lady, and
there is no one in whose behalf the sym

THE MORGANTON MURDER AND
We give today a large portion of our
columns to the above case. We gave at
first, what we believed to be a full and
impartial account of thaTdreadful affair
and have seen no reason since to change
our opinion ; believing it still to be as cor
rect and more impartial and full than any
that has been given, and we should have
said nothing more but from urgent solici
tations, which we feel bound at length, to
yield to. Col. Avery, at first, from ac
quaintance, association and character,
stood tenfold higher in our estimation than
Mr. Flemming, yet our sense of right, of
law, of order, and of conscience, as an in
dividual and as a public Journalist, com
pelled us to look upon the deed he com
mitted with astonishment, anguish, anl
abhorence. We begin the statement of
" B." (General Bynum) after! his detail of
the suit, fight, etc.. being in substance
what we published ourselves. We see
nothing in his statement that is false yet
there were many things that were true
that he left unsaid, and he evidently has
given every possible advantage to'Col. A.
that the case could admit in the bounds
of truth. He gives in substance (over a
column) his whole argument, to which we
do not object, but it certainly would have
given in this " authentic account," the ar
gument for the State. His declaration
that when God pardons, man dare not
punish," is about on a par with that un
warrantable assumption of the mountain
banner, that " it (the murder) was justi
fied in the sight of God and max." And
when " A," says: "Admitting his reason
was not dethroned, had he not a right
to do it" we say most unqualifiedly no.
Neither he nor any other man, in out judg
ment, has a right to do any such thing in
any such way or place. As soon would
we expect to be shot down in the house
of God on the Sabbath day, as in a Court
room under a Judges seat, and he on the
bench. If such t hings are permitted in
such places, we have no guarantee for life
or protection this side heaven. It is plead
up that "public opinion required Col. A.
to kill Flamming." if it did, " public opin
ion," is wrong, a bad guide and a murder
er, and ought forthwith to be set right and
restored to reason, and if this be public
opinion, we for one are against it, now
henceforth and forever ; and if public o
pinion gives a man the right to s;t all
KOSSUTH IN NEW YOUK HIS RE

The reception of the Governor of Hun
gary by the Corporation and citizens of
New York took place on Saturday morn
mg and is described as having presented
one of the grandest and most imposing
spectacles ever witnessed on this Conti
nent. The entire military force of the city
with companies- from the surrounding
country paraded, and formed at an early
hour in the vicinty of Casile Garden to
await the landing of the nation's guest.
The number of troops on parade was es

presence of numerous civic associations
added greatly to the imposing features of

The Vanderbilt started for Staten Isl
and at about half past nine o'clock and at
that early hour a large number of persons
were gathered at the Battery to view the
progress of the affair. The Hungarian,
English, and American flags were dis
played from the staffs of the steamer, and
a cannon posted on her forward deck was
discharged at intervals. The U. S. reve
nue cutter and some of the merchant ves
sels in the harbor were decorated with
flags. The Reamer arrived off ihe quar
amine deck about half past nine, and lay
out in the stream while Alderman Mor
gan and Miller went on shore in a boat
to apprize M. Kossulh the committee were
now ready to escort him to the city.
Aboutquarter past ten M. Kossuth came
on board, accompanied by Madame Kos

loudly cheered, and salutes were fired
from the steamer on the shore. The
steamboat Norwalk bad gone down with
a load of passengers to witness the em
barkation, and they cheered in union wilh

the steamboats passing rang their bells,
and guns were fired from Governor's 1st
and and the Jersey shore. Going op the
East River as far as Greenport. the Van
derbilt was hailed with cheers from
crowds of persons congregated on the
piers and shipping on each side. At the
navy yard salutes were fired from on board
the U. S. ship North Carolina andthe fri
gate St. Lawrence, and the yards were
manned by the crews. Returning toward
Castle Garden it was found to be too late
to admit of the proposed excurson up the
North river, and it determined to land.
The Battery was densely crowed with
spectators and on the approach of the
Vanderbilt, Gen. Morris's corps of artille
ries fired a salute, which was returned.
Unfortunately the tide was so low that
it was found impracticable to run the
steamer up to the landing in the usual
way ihose on board having rushed for

in the back part of the room, and the
"noise and confusion" were such that we
were unable to hear the Mayor's address
alihough we stood within ten feet of him.
M. Kossuth stood close to his Honor, and
no doubt beard all that was said.
Exertions were ,again made to bring
the house to order, and for a time succeed
ed. M. Kossuth then spoke as follows :
" Mr. Mayor : Gentlemen, If you are
desirous to hear my humble thanks for the
generous reception you have given me,
then I humbly beg you to be silent, or else
it will be utterly impossible for me to
speak. I am still sick, and my head is
dizzy after being tossed for two weeks on
the restless waves of the Atlantic but 1
shall soon be refreshed by a few hours
rest on the soil of freedom. The soil of
freedom. The soil cf frcedem ! Your hap

t the United States around me, my
thoughts still turn to home. Here M.
Kossuth appeared to be much effected.? I
see in the midst of this great assembly i is
before me the image of my connfry.and a
ray of hope for her liberty. 1 think I hear
in your loud huzzaha the trumpet cll
sounding liberty lor the oppressed people
of Europe. 1
Citizens, much as I am in need of some
rest before I enter into business matters
publicly. I cannot let this, the first occa
sion pass without letting you know my
hopes and expectations. (Here the noise
became so loud that Kossulh declared it
was impossible to speak, sajd he would
write out his remarks for the press. Loud
cries of 'go on r prevailed upon him to
resume.) I have to thank the people, the
Congress and the Government ol the U.
States for liberation. (The interruption
was here renewed, and thl attempt to
speak further was abandontl.) 1
M. Kossulh had several sheets of notes
in his hands, and had evidently intended
to deliver a long address.
After the ceremonies of tho reception
had concluded, Kossuth left the Garden,
and was received by the military escort
which was awaiting him, consisting of the
whole of the First Division of New York
State Militia, under command of Major
Gen. Sandford, with the highest military
honors. The immense procession was
then formed, and moved, through the route
appointed, to the east gate of Park, where
the civic portion was dismissed, and the
military passed in review before Kossuth
who occupied a position in front of the
City Hall. He was then committed to
the charge of a guard of honor, and escor
ted to the Irving House, where commodi
ous and elegantly fitted up apartments
had been prepared for the occupancy of
himself and suite.
The procession was one of extreme
length asof the greatest magnificence and
it was nearly night before I had fqlly pas
sed over the route. The principal houses
and hotels on the line of tbe streets thro
which it passed were elegantly decorated
with flags and other emblems of welcome
and gratulaiion. Numerous appropriate
mottoes were also displayed, and at the
eastern and western gates of the Park, tri
umphal arches were erected, thro' which
Kossuth and the whole procession passed.
These arches are sufficiently wide, and in
height about 20 feet. They are decorated
with evergreens and red. green and white
merino, adjusted so as to have the appear
ance of the stripes in the national flag of
Hungar'. The top of the structure was
handsomely trimmed with rosettes and the
armorial bearings of the city. Anotlher
arch of similar structure was erected at
Castle Garden gate. It is adorned in tho
same style. In the evening, some of the
hotels exhibited transparencies wilh ap
propriate designs and devices, and during
both the day and evening the whole city
wore tbe appearance of 'be greatest splen
dor, and enjoyment and hilarity was visi
ble every where. The number of persons
who were drawn into the street by tho
display is estimated as high as two bun.
The grand banquet to be given to Kos
suth by tbe Corporation of New York was
postponed to Thursday last, when it was
to take place at the Irving House. Tho
Editorial Banquet was to follow in a day
or two. The N. Y. Express says of it :
The arrangements for it are complete,
and on a grand scale. Messrs. Coleman
At Steitson of tbe Astor House, intend to
prepare the best dinner ever given in the
United States. Eminent and eloquent
speakers are selected to reply to the toasts
on the occasion. Several of the most dis
tinguished person in the Union will be pre
sent, and many of the leading editors out
of New York. At ibis banquet M. Kos
suth will probably make his gnat speech
in this country. Over 00 members of the
editorial profession, combining ihe press
of ihis city will listen to it.
The N. Y. Tribune thus describes the
person of the Hungarian Patriot :
Kossuth is a good looking man. about
five feet seven or eight inches in height,
and with great expression of feature. Win
eye is all intelligence, and his brow, tho
not so broad as it has been represented on
rnanyof his portraits, towers up to an ex
tremchcigbf, and is somewhat expansive.
He appears to be a slirn man. rather than
full in the chest, a often portrayed, and.
as is the custom of bis country, he wears
a beard ami muustacbios which cover tho
lower part of his face.
His hands are very small, and his cos
tume, when he arrived, was the simple
unadorned dress of his country, tbe Hun
garian hat. with its feather and dangling
tassels. Altogether he has a command
ing figure, and the first impression which
strike an intelligent person on looking at,
him, would be one of respect, on account
of the intelligence and philosophical ap
pearance of his whole exterior man.
The Tribane also says
With the rising of the sun on Friday
the Telegraphs sent tothc uttermost parU
of tbe Union the news of the arrival of
the Nation's guest. New Orleans and
other places sent instantaneous greetings.
