At this point ivev. Mr. Vass arose and
announced that it became his painful 1
duty to inform the pupils and the public
that Prof. O'Neal had withdrawn his ap
plication for a position in the school for
the re.xt year, and as; a testimonial of
the high regard in which he was held
by his eias-j. jR' had the pleasure of pre- i
senting him. on the part of the class, a
beautiful cane. As the Professor went
forward to accept it a shower of boquets
were hurled at him. He is a good
teacher and his many friends here wish '
him success in his future field of labor ;
w-hercver it may be.
The cane presentation was followed !
bv a song Auld Lang Syne from the 1
Third and Fourth Grades in words well
suited for the occasion.
The graduating class
Allen and Leah Jones
Thomas, were present c
llie President of the l.oar
. Misses Maiv
and Mr. Fred
d diplomas by
d in the follow-
mg language :
"Take these evidences of your scholar
ship and good conduct, and cherish
them as among your most precious or
naments. In after years, when you
grow to be old men and women, this
day will be one among the brightest in
your memories. Recollect mg that
tn .vvledge is power, stop not herein
your pur-e.it ol the same, but press for
ward to the front rank, and endeavor to
stand, a peer among the w ise. the good
and honored of the earth."
Tiie response, by Miss Lottie Hubbs,
was well read, but her sweet, gentle
voice is not strong enough for reading
to a large out-door audience, conse
quently many did not hear it distinctly,
though it was well received by all.
The benediction was pronounced by
Ulv. Mr. Vass. and thus closed the sec
ond year of the New Berue Graded
Aud now we with to say a word to our
people about the future success of the
school. It is hoped to have l he new
building completed in time for the open
ing, of the next session. But the new
building is not all that is needed. Do

If so. we must have a large, well-arranged
hall in which to have the annual
commencement exercises, so that our
friends may come from the country to
witness them. No belter advertisement
can be made for a school than these an
nual exhibits where large numbers of
people from the surrounding country
gather to see what has been done, and
see if it is a proper place to send their
children to be educated.
We are glad to see so much unity
among the trustees, and such earnest
efforts on their part to make this school
a success. Evidence of this on their
part will draw the hearty support of the
community. Let us regard this institu
tion as a common interest around which
we can all rally, and New Berne will
soon regain her former proud position
in culture and literature.

Where there are so many good men
choose from, it surely cannot be
i iiicJ invidious to let one's choice
1! upon the p r of any of the many,
r f veil the Good Book saith: "For
,::iv are called but few- are chosen."
hf'Tio therefore that we shall be
,a.i'ib ne,l by tlie zealous friends of all
r:uiiMates before the convention when
we .-ay that our decided preference for
I.i-uu-nant-Governor is Ma.j. John
Habfs. ,.f New Heme. There are!
a aav reasons why he would make an ;
a (la.able and t-flieient officer and why
be s!i.ul'.l be nominated. We will take i
up a few of them at random. He is by ;
'..! ore; of the best aud most elo- '
onent speakers iu the Stale, and as a ;
-lum! orator has feu- superiors. He
never does any thing by halves, and will
a n v from the mountains to the sea-r-hi.rt-.it'
he be nominated, lie has the
i ndurauee and the physique t " stand'
the fatigue and will not give out. He
h .s a irreat amount (.if personal maguet-:s-i,i
an 1 attracts peaple to him, never
::; b;, an enemy, and adds to his al
i air sreat p,.j)ularity wherever he
... .. ii:s pleasant and engaginR man-
