rapid succession and the ladies,
with their attendant gallants,
dashed about in their elegant bug

of the horses shining respleudeutly
in the warm June sun. At a short

its banks with green and budding
trees of ditl'erent kinds, and the
river, pronounced by the kuowing
ones to be delightful for rowing, ot
which all the young people of Kin-I
sfoti were fond, was smooth and
clear as crystal. The nights were
brilliant with the refulgence of a;
full moon and it was not long before !

The house was occupied at the

The new uniform added much to the
appearance of the New Berne Company.
A striking feature in the Atlantic

Altogether the Goldsboro boys present
the finest physique. The Wilmington's
are more uniform in size, bnt thsy have
