The remains of Senator Vance

most highly esteemed for all the traits

beauty of feature and for a brilliant
expression which makes the ideal start
when one looks upon her. She has
beautiful eyes, soft and souifully lumin

The Democratic Congressman of
uie :iui uisn.net won (pute a vic
tory in the ITotise of liepresenta
tives on the Oth inst. The Post
oflieo Depnrtinent appropriution
hill was under discussiott, Und Mr.
Crawford offered an amendment,
which prevailed, diverting 30,000
of the $0,000,000 appropriated for
star route service, to aid people,
who are to he henefitted ly new or
"sDeeial'' oflice-:. in wttiMi. l.;,,r
regular star routes, thus enahling
person, m remote sect:ons to
cure mail facilities.
The basis of the pay of a "special
mail carrier,' or a carrier at a
"special oilie"," 1 y which the De
partment means an office not on a
regular star route, has always been
unfair and unreasonable. It is de
termined by the stamps cancelled
at the office which the carrier
serves, he receiving as compensa
tion two-thirds of the cancellation.
The absurdity of such a system
will appear upon th statement of
an illustration. Suppose A carries
mail to an office named Anacostia,
and P is carrier to Alexandria, a
"special office." Suppose tli3 dis
tance is the same to each office and
the roads equally good or bad, and
that stamps cancelled at Anacos

work done be the same, ono would
get $10.00 while the other got
00, under the present law.
Air. Crawford not only seeks lo
cure this manifest injustice, but
ins anmndnient gives mure money'
to small offices-, in pat'si;!y settled
communities, so that the Depart
ment can nnikitani iii-.-s-' new es
tablished nod 'stabli.-h ethers
rather than abuii.-h any office:-.
This is not only to the interest of
country people, who live remotely
from tow us, or from a regular star
route iliee, but is au advantage to
any business man starting any en
terprise in the country, but who
docs not want to go fron to G
miles for his mail.
This only shows, what a promi
nent lawyer told me not long ago,
that Mr. Crawford is a wide-awake
and industrious man, and is always
looking out for tho interests of the
plain ami poor people, who put
him where' he is, and whose servant
Different opinions prevail here
as to Mr. Pearson's proposed cadi
daey for Congress. Many Demo
crats think Mr. Crawford' will be
able to defeat him more easily
than ho could beat a regular moss
back republican, like Jin Moodv,
Prichard or Ewart, for the reason,
that thev could at least loll
the full .Republican strength, while
Mr. Pearson can get the- vote
of neither Democrat?, Populists or
Republicans, on the platform laid
down ly him, in the Asheville

Crawford, have each received lately a
ctlf of fine blood from Tennessee.
The death of Senator Vance, the al-
worshipped son of North Caroli
na, while not entirely unexpected is a
severe shock to our people, and all, ir
respective of party belief, are filled
with heart Mt regret that he is taken.
T'will take a pen of far more ability
than that of mine to express (he depth
of feeling vyhieh this sad blow calls
forth; we ask to quote and endorse
these sentiments, from the "New Berne
Journal." written just before his death :
"Turn tin pages of North Carolina
history and the brightest and most
glorious are those illuminated by his
heroic acts and splendid achievements.
It is no disparagement of any ether
North Carolinian to speak well of
Vance. Whoever may be second in tie
hearts of h's countryman Vance must
be first. It iz honor enough for any
other mr.n to be considered as a rival
of Vance in independence of action, de
votion to principle, purity of purpose.
and in inalienable and undying love of
the Old North State."
