It follows that he was one of
the ablest men of Ids time, for
it was by no stroke of chance
that he was chosen to guide a
masterful race through a strug

was selected because he was be

Mr. Davis was one of the most
conscientious of our public men.
He was not brilliant, but he was
able, painstaking and earnest in
History will say that Jefferson
Davis was honest in faith, ex
pression and effort alike at
Montgomery when he was
crowned amidst the smiles and
roses of the sunny South; in the
prison cell when hope and
triends seemed to have perish
ed, and in the hour when the
long halt was called that sum
moned him to the dreamless
couch of the dead. Phil.Tiines.
Adversity is the test of man
hood, and the distinguishing
trait of Jefferson Davis was his
manhood. He was a man a
man in sterling integrity, in in
domitable courage, in self-reliance
and self-poise, alike in
victory and defeat, success and
failure. He was a true man,
for he never failed to meet and
justify every trust reposed upon
him. He was a great man in
the highest prosperity or in the
depths of adversity in his vir
tues he was great and even in
bis faults there was no little
ness. N. C. Presbyterian.
He was the idol of Southern
hearts. He was cast in an he
roic mould and Southern men
and women love above all else
a hero. With unbending1 cour
age he united a dignity and an
uprightness of character which
even his enemies cannot deny
mm ; las sincerity was beyond
question ; the rich fruitage of
his intellect is among the treas
ures of the race. He had auff
ered for his people and for his
sufferings was held in the ten
derest affection. This devotion
has been softened and strength
ened as the years have passed
and his infirmities increased.
In Mr. Davis were united
spotless integrity, unusual can
dor, and frankness and sinceri
ty; high intelligence, brilliant
ratory, a ma.-;Uvful command
in debate; quick perception and
ft rare hower of decision, pro-nc-anced
views and an earnest
adherence to hi.-, conviction of
right; a brave spirit, a noble
courage; while he was tender
and gentle and kind a knight
ly and chivalrous Christian gen
tleman. He had in excess many
qualities -any one of which is
accounted a basis of greatness.
In Ids private life he was irre
proacliable, in resolution and
fortitude he was unexcelled; in
honor and scrupulous exactness,
Such a character deserves as
j t receives the homage of man
kind, and his people torn to
him as an exemide for the
youths of the land. Ral. Sews
The Wilmington Star had an
able and excellent editorial on
Jefferson Davis, part of which

Jefferson Davis had his faults
and made mistakes for he was
mortal and fallible. Put a tru
er heart never beat in a human
breast, nor a nobler pirit never
left a crumbling tenement of
clay. He was true to God. true
to his country, true to the cause
of civil and religious liberty,
true to great fundamental prin
cipals of a government of the
people,, for the people and by
the people, and lastly ever true
to to himself. So it was always
impossible that he should bo
false to any. His aims were
high, and his life was so pure
and goon and gracious and hon
orable and sincere that he could
stand the scrutiny of the world
and bear the light of a thousand
He -was an orator, a states
man, a writer of masterly pow
er, a soldier, a patriot, a chris
tian. He lived in the hope of
Heaven and died a firm, humble
believer in the dear Son of God.
Jefferson Davis never failed
in hi? entire life to be true to
his convictions and to his duty

became one of tlte military Jols
of the Union. As a planter and
slave owner, he ranked with the
most successful and humane of
the noble army of Southern
farmers and slave owners who
have been much traduced ig
norantly in most instances we
are glad to believe. As a leader
in the great Democratic party,
which has in it the germ of
everlasting life, he was wise in
counsel and fearless in action.
As an orator, he was the peer of
any man of his day. As a de
bater, lie enjoyed the distinc
tion of being the best in the U.
S. Senate and of being the only
man who ever worsted Benton
in debate. Asa statesman, he
was able, well furnished, patri
otic and devoted to his ideals of
chat was best for the country.
As Secretary of War he was the
superior of any man who pre
ceded or succeeded him. Such
is the summing up of the career
of Jefferson Davis until the day
when he became President of
the Confederacy. If he had died
before the memorable struggle,

and Southern pens. S t a t e
Grover Cleveland and Henry
W. Urady, the silver-tongued
orator of the South, were the
centres of attraction last Thurs
day night before tlie Merchant's
Association of Boston. Mr.Cl eve-
land made, as usual, a telling
mg speecli, an eloquent appeal
lor iaiionai reiorm ana one
that was well received by his
hearers. Of Mr. Grady's speech,
on the race problem, the New
York World has the following
to say :
"Henry W. Grady has the ingpi
rotion of eloquence. Last night he
addressed the Merchant's Associa
tion of Boston, and his speech will
doubtless ring as the other to the
honest mind and heart.
"It the race question were not
partisan it would not exist. It lives
because Republican politicians find
their profit in its agitation. Mr.
Grady's apjeal is to the patriotism
of the country. He frankly recog
nizes the ills which have followed
the enfranchisement of the negro :
he admits that the whites will never
permit white supremacy.
"Such a peech as that of Mr.
Grady must do good, because the
conscience and intelligence of the
North are with him. The majority
oi nortnern men are not deceived by
appeals to passion. The South asks
for a patient waiting until she can
work out the problem which the
country has imposed upon her. Fed
eral interference in behalf of negro
supremacy must keep the South solid
and the races politically divided.
The true union between the sections
and the natural division, between
the parties will come with the adop
tion of the patriotic view of Mr.
Grady, and the rejection of the sor
did and traitorous policy of needy
partisans, whose greed of power is
not deterred by the good of the

To-day will be marked with a

early this morning, accompani
ed by Brigadier-General Charles
J.Anderson Colonel B. O.James,
Colonel C. O'B. Cowardin, and
Major W. M. Cary.
Governor Fowle arrived last
night, accompanied by Colonel
Francis II. Cameron, Colonel
Frederick A. Olds, Colonel Al
ston Grimes, Captain W. B.
Grimes, his daughters, Mrs. D.
B. Avera and Miss Helen Fowle,
and Miss Eliza Skinner.
This morning Governor Fowle
and staff called on Governor
Lee and staff and escorted them
to a hotel, where a reception
was held, and Governor Lee
was given a greeting which
showed him he was as much at
home in North Carolina as in
A noon a procession escorted

Grounds. The procession was
composed of the marshals and
officers of thn fair, a band,Com

veterans bearins a bat

a large audience greeted the
Governors with hearty cheer3
H. K. iv.Biju, presiaiii- ui me
Fair Association, introduced
Governor Fowle. who in a grace
ful spoech bade Governor Lee
welcome. Governor 1 owle said
that North Carolinians love
next to their own State Virginia,
and that whenever North Caro
linians desire sympathy and
support they always turn to
Virginia. He alluded to Gover
nor Lee's ancestry and heroism,
and said ha was a soldier,states
man, and patriot whom all peo
ple of Nortli Carolina delight
Three cheers were then given
for Governor Lee, who came
forward and made the speech ot'
the day. It was a very happy
and forceful effort of nearly one
hour's length, mainly addressed
to the veterans, who were pres
ent in large numbers and were
deeply-interested listeners. He
expressed his pleasure in greet
ing an audience of people of
the good Old North State, and
said lie was here to show the
great love the old mother Com
monwealth has for her sister
State, the peopk of both being
sympathetic, homogeneous, and
with the same aspirations and
same destiny and bound togeth
er by such ties as make a divid
ingline purely imaginary.
He alluded to his having
married a relative of Governor
Fowle and of the close personal
similarity of the two Governors,
He then went on to eulogize
the valor and virtue and love of
liberty which characterize
North Carolinians, and said in
war and in peace these were il
lustrated. He declared the
people of this State were right
when they declined to ratify
the Federal Constitution until
proper safeguards to secure the
rights of States had been se
cured. The people should con
trol the Government and not
the Government the people. As
soon as ever it is admitted that
a great central government is
snpreme the first foothold on
liberty is lost.
He spoke of the right of se
cession which existed in 1861,
and said most forcibly that a
man who terms those who
fought on the southern side trai
tors is not familiar with the
Constitution, with history, or
the rights of the States.
He paid a high compliment
to the North Carolina soldiers
D. Hi Hill, Pender, Ramseur,
Anderson, Gordon, and Petti
grew, whom he knew and who
had no superiors, and said that
at Gettysburg the North Caro
linians went as far as the far
thest in that world-famous
In conclusion, he urged his
audience to always crry ut
their obligations to their great
country, now again so happily
united, and promote the honor
and glory and prosperity of this
He felt sure that if our conn
try called for the services of
North Carolinians the latter
would show tiat high courage
which always distinguished
The Governor's speech was
punctuated with applause, and
Miss Helen Fowle, daughter of
the Governor,gave him a suterb
boquet when he closed.
There were calls for Gover
nor Fowle, to which the latter
responded in a brief "speech,
thanking Governor Lee in the
name of the whole people of
North Carolina for his visit and
his address, and in which he
declared that the North Caro
linians wanted a southern man
on the next national ticket as
Vice-President and wanted
Fitzhugh Lee as that mm.
North Carolina would show
what she thinks of Virginia and
Fitz Lee. Great applause.
Governor Lee then held a re
ception and shook hands with
the veterans. He received a
special invitation to visit Wil
mington and at 3 o'clock this
afternoon left for that city,
where he was given a royal re
ception this evening. He will
leave there for Richmond at
night. The people are delight
ed at his visit and charmed
with him and the officers who

For The Caucasfan.1
NOTMS AND KIirJLIXTJONK.
We hear of little else these
days but hardtim.es. The
merchant, the farmer, the me
chanic, all agree thatthe times
are hard, very hard. It is
so often repeated, reiterated
that it forces even the most
skeptical to the conclusions into
which the public mind seems
to have settled down. And yet
there are some things strangely
at variance with this public
clamor, and which seems partly
to contradict this conclusion of
the public mind. A laboring
man can get 60 cents per day for
his work. Let us say then that
he makes this one day ; with
this he can buy ton pounds of
pork. He works another day,
and with this he can buy a
bushel of corn. Here, then,
with two days work he has pro
vision to support him comfor
tably for a month, with three
days work in the month he can
clothe himself. Of the twenty
six working days in the month,
if he work five days, he makes
himself independent of the
world. Then, for tbe other
tweuty-one days, he can live,
if he chooses, the life ef an In
dian chief. Or, if ho chooses to
work these twenty-one days,
he can support a family com
fortably and save money be
sides. This is not Utopian or
visionary, but is in reach of
any industrious, frugal man.
Now, if life is so easy to every
industrious man, it contradicts
flatly the notion that the times
are hard. Resides this, people
are as extravagant as ever they
were. A young lady the other
dy showed me her new hat. It
weighed four ounces. How
much did it cost, said I. Just
four dollars, she said. So our
ladies wear hats that cost their
weifht in silver and other
parts f their dress correspond.
Ladies could not dress in this
style if the times were hard.
And when a circus comes along
there is money a plenty to iiy
This year, they ay is the most
unfavorable ever known for
farming, and yet in Wayne coun
ty one man made eighty-five
barrels of corn on five acres of
land just eighty-five bushels
perasre. Why did he do this?
The Agricultural Department
offered a premium for the best
corn farm. He worked wisely
and made the corn and the pre
mium. Now nature offers a
premium every year, and those
who work for it get it. But it
is never taken by those farmers
w ho spend half their time loaf
ing in the villages, keeping up
the public sentiment in favor
of hard times.
There is hardness somewhere;
but it is not in the times nor the
reasons, but in the people. In
them there must be changft,
must be reform; or we will go
down to the deepest depths of
pove- ty. We will soon be too
poor to buy ink enough to dot
our i's and cross our t's. Some
things our people must learn
or there is no redemption for us.
We are doomed. Among these
the following are of first im
J fit. Stop spending other men's
money. If you owe your neigh
bow twenty dollars and have
ten dollars in your pocket, that
money is not yours, but his, and
you cannot spend it without his
consent. Remember that the
vice closest km to debt. is lying,
for lying ' rides on debt's back "
2nd. Spending more money
than you make. He who makes
ninety-nine cents and spends a
dollar will surely come to want
"The Indies did cot make Spain
rich because her outgoes were

3rd. Stop spending money be
fore you make it. Many do this,
then sit down and hope for bet
ter times. Remember that "he
who live? on hope dies fasting,"
and that "it is dilligence that
gives good luck," and that ''God
helps them that help them
selves,'J and to-day is worth two
