portiun of. ihe Republic in which he was
born arid reared. His theme was North
Carolina; and all he had to tell was a
simple story of some of the incidents in
her career. He did not 'suppose they were
known to all, for the career of North Car
olina had been singularly unobtrusive,
modest and quiet, and her true history yet
remained to be written. He would cn
ll'dly admit that . what be was about , to
fcay bad been collected to that end. . There
were three meniorable incidents . in that 1
history. First: It was on the shores of
Norlh Carolina that the first English colo
ny was planted. Second : The first blood
shed in battle with the troops of the lit it
ish Government in support of ihe princi
ples of the Aineriean Kevololion was the !
moode4'ri'h Carolina ! arid the ftrst at
tle field was the soil of that Stale. Third:
The first Declaration of Independence ev
er promulgated in any of tbese polonies
came from North Carolina, more than a
year befoie the National Declaration of
'July 4, 177G. With the first two particu
lars he would not trouble his audience
be would, perhaps, occupy too much of
lbeixJiine before .Jb1a.jdispMedjbeibird.
Without further preface he would begin
hisslofy. and to a correct understanding
of it, i t wh s n pcts! ary t hey boo Id . he . i n

ihemselves in the village of Charlotte, in
Mecklenhurg County. It would be obvi
ous that, from some cause or other, there
had been brought1 together a very large
assemblage, and an unusual excitement
appeared to prevail. Some of the clergy
would be seen speaking with deep earn
estness to gray-haired men, who drank in
wj'i greedy cars all :that tbey - uttered ?
while on the outskirts of the circle matrons
and younger women hearkened with
breathless attention to what was passing.
Again near by 'might" be seen groups of
middle-aged rncn engaged in earnest con
versation. A man whose dress &, appear

influential class in that simple community,
in the meantime was reading aloud from
a handbill, which had just been brought
by a travel stained messenger. j

bjood 'of Massachusetts men being shed by Bri

Mr: Editor. There are some reports in
circulation about Davidson College, in
which the whole community are deeply
interested, in reference to which I desire
information, and knew hot to" whom lean
apply more appropriately than to your
It U said that the Convention which
met last month in your town rufused by a
decided majority to accept the resignajAba
of the Professors, tendered to the Board ol'
Trustees in August, and referred to the
Convention for decision ; and yet proceed
ed to ibe election of additional Professors.
Have the additions to their funds justified
such a measure?. Have they buildings pre?,
pared for tbeir.accommodation ? Are the
prospects of the College so encouraging
as to invite so great an increase ol expen
diture ? Do give us if you please, Mr.
Editor, some items from the report of Trea
surer or Agents. Their action indicates
n onward move which will cheer the
heart of every friend of Education in Wes
tern Carolina. I do hope it will check
those ill omened croakers, who have been
singing out " loss of Public Confidence,"
"dying." and such like strains.
I he Trustees are prudent, calculating
men and would never hind themselves to
support five Professors and a President
unless they saw their way clear.
It gratified me much to learn that the
Board had sent a Committee to request
Professor Johnston to wilhold his resigna-
nanon, ana mat ne nad conditionally coJ j,
sented so to do. It is not at all surprj.'tJ w
mat tney are unwilling to lose the servi
ces of such an experienced and able Pro
fessor. He has been connected with this
institution almost from the beginning ; and
has always enjoyed the entire personal
esteem and professional confidence of ev
ery President of the Board, every mem
diverniy ol opinion among us. Let, however,
here be none' upon this great determination,
lo wil : thai our diversities of opinion t-hall be
discussed' with entire respect for the tights and
consciences of each other; and our muiual do
termination in all honor -and honesty to suppot I
each ortiPT's jirst -rights shall be so f.ilflllfithat
lberea.hailhe.no discord that will be no dis
cord that will lead lo the luptute of the family
ties. Prominent among all other matleis ol
interest wih us just now, is ihe determination
lo do exactly as our lathers did stand togeth
er through life and it necessary, death, even on
the bailie field. How near we may be to ihe
need of afl our strength, God only knows,. Bui
the diry is comrng-surely wherr wr will neeir it
all; may it find us when it comes, neither dis
j united nor uriptepated for its approach. The
'moral of my s'oiy is biiefly this : That sprurig
i Tiom lathers- who alfdid well all manfully
acted iheir part? throughout life, it becomes not
I us, their sons, eiiher to forget their sufferings
: and their achievements, or (u sputn iheir eiatn
dent even to the humbles individual on the
College hill. .
The effort of the Trustees shows their
jutlgment and I hope they will spare no
exertion to retain Prof. Johnston.
The College cannot afford to" give him
up, and the Community will bpld the
Board responsible, if every effort is not
seasonably made for the attainment of so
desirable an end.

is necessary, in order to do business, is to
opetr ir shop w store nnd stocfe itwitri mer
chandise. To take means to inform tiie
public of the nature of their business, and
solicit their patronage, has ever been a
matter pf primary importance. In the
middle of, the seventeenth centuryi th
shopkeepers in London made known their
business viva voce. The masters or pro
prietors would take a turn before their
doors, crying oui What d'ye lack, sir;
"what d'ye lack madam ?" and then run
over a lift of tbe-oiflrTMMlitieB4lMy-da4t
in, and when tired, the task was assumed
by the apprentice, thus making the city
a Babel of strange sounds. .
This democratic era wns succeeded by
the age of signs, which rvnius soon im
proved and ornamcTited bJ ilTfmap tiable
devices. Painting, gilding boars' beads,
flying dragons, and swans, were conspic
uous emblems. As the capabilities of the
printing press were developed, shrewd
men saw in it a chance to " univeralize
their sign board." They saw tbey could
place upon it not only their name and num
ber, but a full account of their stock and
their range of prices ; they saw that (hey
could challenge the attention not only of
those who passed by their store, but of
meniin all places and at all times. "Tbe

and politeness will induce litem to buy.
