He ia one of the most popular and prominent of tlio Governors of the United States to day aud irequcntly spoken t)f as the Southern candidate for (he position of Vice-President of the Nation. John Esteu ('poke, the popular Virginian uuthor, in his very readable and interesting book 'Surry of Eagle's Ne&t," which i3 a slory of the late war, thus describes the General on page 241): ' General Fitz," as his friends called him, was about twenty-si:, of low stature, and with a ntout and vigorous person. His face was rutidy and laughing, his eye bright, penetrating, and full of humor. A heavy blown iroustache and beard half covered the ay and insouciant countenance. Jle wore a brown felt hat, loop ed up and decoiated with a feather; a gray dre.' S coat, and elegant cavaliy boot?, against which rattled' his long sabre, ' General Fitzhugh Lee" seemed to enjoy the profession of arms to liko movement, fun, and adventure and was evidently a great favor ite with the army. Later on, in speaking of the disputed encounter at Kelly's Ford, lie tays : "I cannot describe it in its animated details; pome other hand must chronicle the splendid gallantry of the little band of Lee, lighting nearly four to one; and tell, too, with what dash and courage Fitzhugh Lee led hi3 men." This is one of the distinguished speakers who will be At tho Fair week after next. Come, see him and hear him. THE EDITOR'S CHAIR, HOW THINGS LOOK FROM OUIi STAND POINT. The Opinion of The Caucasian and the Opinion of others which we Can Endorse on the Various Topics of the Day. Democratic ideas are spread ing. Brazil has deposed her king Don Pedro, who was the wisest ruler South of the United States, and st up a form of govern ment very similar to our own. It is now the United States of Brazil. The world moves. Gov. Fowle Las appointed As sociate Justice Merrimcn Chief Justice to fill the vacancy cau&ed by the death ot Chief Justice Smith. Superior Court Judpo Clarke has been appointed -ns fcsociate Justice, and Spier Whitaker made Judge to fill Clarke's place. The appoint ments are all good, but we agree with the Messenger that it seems to be a kind of Raleigh monop oly. Mr. Whitaker is a very astute lawyer, made quite a rep utation in the Grissom trial and has been chairman of the State Democratic Executive Commit tee for Eeveral years. E. Clarence Stedman, whose social and literary receptions are so noted for their intellec tual, improving and elevatintr character, in referring to the "Howdydo and trashy talk style," indulged in by most peo ple at evening gatherings of all kinds, is reported as saying : "That is very well for the fashion able people who have come together to show off their toilets the women to be seen of men, and the men to Kee the women; tmt why in the name of reason should sensible peO' pie, with something in their heads and nothing worth looking at on their backsconduct themselves in this pues-in-the-corner fashion. But I take It that this is not because we lack good talkers, but because we lack good listeners. "It would be a most excellent thing if we could all give our minds to learning to talk decently, for when we do we will appreciate good talk in others more.and there will be better chance for something worth calling "intellectual society." What are you going to bring to the Sampson Fair? Have you good stock. Have you good poul try ? Have you good corn or grain of any kind ? If so, as a good citizen you will bring it to the Pair and prove to the world that we have a live and progressive .v -"-:.' , .W" , .s.oj:-- ' 5 O- AT THE CAPITAL.. What Is Transpiring at the Head of the Nation. . flteg. Cor. The Caucasian. 1 Washington, D. C, Nov. 18th. Senator Blackburn is one of the most popular, if not the most popular man, in public life, with the "boys". A little incident that occurred hero this week shows how he obtains and how he keeps that popularity. He has a friend here who is iu the toil3 of the law. An appli cation was to be made in his fa vor to one of the local courts and "Joe" Blackburn, as nine pt-ople out of every ten here ca.ll the junior Senator from Kentucky, was asked to join several other lawyers in this move on behalf of the prisoner. He readily consented, but at the last minute it was discovered that Senator Blackburn was nut a member of the local bar. Did he allow that to freeze him out of the case? Not a bit of it He .had himself admitted to the bar and took his place with the prisoners other counsels and now the prisoner is out on bail. The Three America's Con gress is back in Washington but owing to the fatigue of its mem bers regular sittings will not begin until next week. The delegates are enthusiastic over what they saw during their forty days trip around the coun try. Mr. Wananiaker does not liko the name of "Ananias" which Seuator Hampton's stinging letter has hung to his coat tail for the rest of his life. In view of the fact that Vice President Morton's big apart ment house in this city has be come, or Diaa lair to Decome a National issue, your correspon dent deems i only fair to say mai mere is no Dar-room, as such a place is commonly known, in the building, but, in r m . one ena oi me caie mere are a immber of tables at which you can sit and be se'r?ed-.with all the liquor you care to pay for. If Democrats are correctly in formed the next Democratic Senator from Ohio will be ei ther John R. McLean or Calvin S. Brice. One of Washington's most prominent printers ha3 been discharged from the Govern ment printing office because while on the street on the night of the recent elections, he gave a cheer over the bulletined an nouncement that Ohio had gone democratic.
