One afternoon a troop of United
States cavalry, about 300 utronr. mm
daubing in with carbines in their bands
ana surrounding Gov. Vance'i house
informed him that they had orders to
take him a prisoner to Washington,
but would wait until next morning. I
was requested to drive the Governor in
a buggy to Salisbury.

Fourroen on each side of the buggy

Gov. Vance was overcome by the sur
roundings and shed teari, and I d i
no. apologize for these tears they
were not the tears of fear they were
inanly tears hed in love for his family
and for North Carolina. Presently he
turned to me, and, wiping the tears
from his face, said : "This will not do.
I must be a man, but I am uot so much
concerned as to" what may be in store
for me, but my poof wife and little
children they were little then they
nau not a cent of money and my poor
State what indignity may be in store
for her? Many a man in my position,
naving snips continuosly rumiing the
blockade, would have feathered his
nest by shipping cotton to Europe, and
iu fact I have often been solicited to do
so, but, thank God, I did not do it my
hands are clean and I can face my
fellow citizens aud say that I have not
made money out of my positiou.
We then rode on until we were about
twelve miles from Salisbury, when we
all sat down by a spring and had a
lunch, which we invited our ffuard to
share witn us. The Governor had by
this time recovered his usual spirits
and began to tell the e-uard sever.il
okesand so gained on them that I
heard them sav anionc t h.iM..i,. .
Why this rebel Governor is a nice
jolly good fellow' so different from
what they had expected.
After lunch he was invited by the
ommandcr of the troops to ride. wMh
was accepted. He thus rode six miles,
when be again took his seat in the
"ffiy nd we drove ahead without
any guard at all until we came within
two miles of Salisbury, when ve wai't d
ror th-' column to cn.ne ui.
i no tioveruor rcuisri-o i to the com.
inai'ding olileer: 'Captain, you are
giving me a good opportunity to
ruu away,' to which the officer replied :
Governor, I know my man.' Such was
the great magnetism of Gov. Vance
starting out surrounded by a troop of
cavalry, lie in the few hours had gained
their confidence and esteem to the
extent that ihey were willing to trust
"The officer in command then said:
Governor, if you will give me your
word of honor to be at the depot to
morrow to meet me at the train, I will
not subject you to the indignity of
marching that troop through the town,
but will let you go in alone with but
one officer, he to go some distance be
hind you so as not to give the appear
ance that you are his prisoner.' The
Governor thanked him and we in this
way drove into town to Col. Shober's
house, and while the beautiful and
charming Miss Shober entertained tho
officer, Gov. Vance went out among his
friends to acquaint them of the condi
tion of things and to borrow a little
money, as he had not a cent. In later
years, when speaking of the trip, he
told me that all he could raise in that
town at that time was about $65.
The next day I went to the depot to
bid him good bye, where I found him
in the cars surrounded by a number of
officers, all as jolly as if the Governor
was an old friend going on a pleasant
trip, and not as their prisoner.
"Such was the magnetism of this
man over men. He left us a goodly

been represented by men. They
have not always been sinless men,
and whether you re-elect or reject
me, hereafter, when some one
comes to write its history, what
ever blame may attacli to me, he
will write ot me that, even with
that blame, he loved the poor; he
toiled for his fellowmen: he lalior-
ed for good causes; and as this
historian turns over the pates of
the record, in w hich my utterances
are contained, he will rise from
them with the lielief that I was
loyal to my principles, faithful to
trust, devoted to you."
If Breckinridge had written this
in a letter to his constituency de
clining to run one could have some
shadow of respect for the man;
but to push himself and his record
on a community ot decent men
and women seems to be without
excuse to be of the kind of inde
cency that flaunts its shame in
public as if it were something to
glory in. But it is likely that
Breckinridge knows the people he
has appealed to better than his
critics; for from tho moment of
of entering the State his appear
ance has been the signal for every
demonstration of confidence in and
approval of him and his career as
a whole Asheville Citizen.
