The President appointed Hons. Wm.

upon this Committee. The Association
then adjourned till the next day to al
low the Committee time to report. The
Association met on the next day, and
the Committee through their Chair
man, Hon. Wm, II. Battle, submitted
a report, which had been unanimously
agreed upon by the Committee. The
substance of it was :
That party politics and sectarian in
fluences should be totally and rigorous
ly excluded from the organization and
government of the University; and for
the purpose of securing popular favor
and support, it was thought necessary
by the Committee that there should be
an entire reorganization both of the
Trustees and Faculty of the University.
The report further expressed a willing
ness on the part of the University if it
should be desired on the basis proposed,
and afterwards give it their cordial,
continued and united support, and any
financial assistance which thev could
render in relieving U of its present fi
This report was unanimously adopted
by the Alumni Association, and after
wardit entirely approved by the Com
mittee of the Trustees, and referred to
the Honorable Board of Trustees at
their meeting in the Executive Ofilce
mi thp Rth int. with tho fnllnwinor
resolution, which was - unanimouslp
adopted by the trustees, to wit:
Hcsotred, That the Superintendent of
l'uoiic instruction communicate to
each Trustee the substance of the pro
ceedings of the Alumni and request the
approval or disapproval of eacn Trus
tee, and lay the information thus re
ceived before his Excellency, Tod R.
Caldwell Governor of North Carolina.
The irrtentioii of the resolution is to
ascertain the opinion of each Trustee in J
regard to the propriety of a reorganiza
tion of the University. It is understood
that each .Trustee who may approve
will tender his resignation as Trustee.
The exercises of the University have
been totally suspended for more than
twelve months. The buildings unoccu
pied are going to waste. There are
tiebts to the afcftount of seventy or
eighty thousand dollars against it. All
its buildings, lands and other property,
are under mortgage, and a suit is now
pending asking for a sale of all the
property to satisfy the debts secured by
In view of these facts the Trustees
who were present at the meeting on
the Oth of January appealed to the
Alumni of the University to come to
its relief. The appeal was responded
to by the Alumni promptly, generously
and 'frankly. It was the wish of the
Trustees who met on February 8th, to
submit the matter to each Trustee, so
that each might act tor himself. Sev
eral Trustees had resigned before the
meeting of the Sth inst., and it was
understood that all who favored the
scheme would resign.
The educational interests of the State
which are the foundation of all its other
interests are liable at times to fall into
the party contests of the day. But our
wise men who met in the Senate Cham
ber on the 1st of February have vir
tually declared that party politics and
sectarian influences should bo -totally
and rigerously excluded from educa
tional interests, fostered by the Stale.
This has been declared to be the basis
upon which the University is'proposcd
to Ik; reorgauized, and is readily ac-i-ntrvi

ingenious way, and demand a vote by

the eve of the mest important politi

who are disqualified by law from a
participation in other equally impor

to be opposed to the act of reconstruc

strong sectional prejudices. Many of
the Trustees live 'far remote from the
seat of - the University and from the
seat of government. Your circular fbt

is drawn in a manner which is calculat

umns of their politieal organ, Tne
men who met in the
now, our "wise
on February 1st," cooly intimate that
if the present Trustees will ge out of
the way, they will be willing tb aid in
re-organizing the Institution.
It Is a remarkable fact that three of
the five members of the Committee ap
pointed by the Alumni were moist influ
ential in the old lioard; and tlie other
two are most prominent members of
the present Board, who were! at the
peculiar meetings of January t)th, and
February Gth. It may be myJmifor
tune, but I cannot confide so far as
-yourself, in the wisdom of "ourwise
men" in whose hands the Universitv
went to ruin. The source from which
the proposition which you submit
comes, does not go very far towards se
curing my approval.
I will not hero question the sincerity
of the sentiment that "party politics
and sectarian influences should, be ex
cluded," but I regret that it had not
been expressed at an earlier day!
3. The University was reorganized,
in its present form, under the operation
of the late act of reconstruction. The
terms upon which these gcntlemfn now
offer their favor, is that the Trustees
and Faculty submit to an entire reor
ganization. There is to be an abandon
ment of one decisive step under the re
construction act of Congress, and that
too a very important one, connected as
it is with the higher educational! inter
ests of our young men. I look upon
this whole movement no a part of the
contest against "reconstruction.'
The Democratic leaders seem o fear
that the Republican Party has i ljured
itself by reconstructing upon tho basis
of incompetent officers. But superior
intelligence is not the only virtue that
should bo looked for in public men.
The most learned do not always frame
the best laws, nor are they always the
safest custodians of outfree institutions.

some of the spurious money was passed.

just upon the eve of the most impor
tant political campaign, when thisjvery
subject of " reconstruction " presents a
prominent point of divergence,' the
Trustees are asked to admit as aailure,
so much of reconstruction as relates to
one of the most important matteirs of
the government. I deny that the pres

the misfortunes of the University and
lay the whole responsibility where it
rightfully belongs, upon the shoulders

with three hands drawing pay by' the letter
fight and crush a sister people, Mazzini
might Imve seen the darling object of
his heart realized. He might have seen
Rome the capital of an Italian republic
Neve? indeed, was his triumph so close
at hand. His foot seemed to be actually
treading the soil of his Utopia when
fate intervened. Since that oay Maz
zini has only been an active schemer
not a practical leader. : .
lie never awakened the popular en
thusiasm with which Garibaldi at one
time inspired Italy and the world.
Though quite as earnest and as honest
as the lion of Caprera, his methods of J
bringing about his ends was very dif
ferent. He and Garibaldi could not
harmonize, and so they agreed to disa
gree. In fact, any one working for
Mazzini in the cause of national regen
eration must bend entirely to his will.
The two triumvirs associated with him
in the defence of Rome differed in their
views, and so he, in disgust, abandoned,
his task 'and retired to England. He
j could be an exile for his political opin
ions, he could be a martyr it necessary,
but he nevr could be a subordinate.
His death''-occurs at a moment when
public attention had long been diverted
from hiuu There is an element of pe
culiar sadness in his fate. To die is
but tfatural ; but for an ardent theorist
and active agitator to die as Mazzini
did, without even beholding his prom
ised Ifmd from Pisgah's top is certainly
hard?: His influence and example,
however, liave had their effect on the
world, and his .writings will not die
with him ; while in contemporary bio
graphy his name will remain as that of
a man who literally devoted his life to
his country-a vrountry which oftefr
failed to comprehend his views, and
neve thought of rewarding his devo
tion. And se passes away one of the
representative men of .the nineteenth
century. N. Y. Post. - :- '

Drowned. A soldier belonging to the
Company now stationed at Rutherfordton,
was drowned in South Fork a few miles
from Lincolnton a few daj'S-ago. The river
was considerably swollen by recent .rains
and was two feet over tlie bride. It seems
that the soldier was driving oine horses.
They stopped on the bridge to drink. The
horse which the soldier was riding drinking
longer than tho others, "the rider spurred
him, and the harse jumped off the bridgeon
