'ashim;T( 'X, July 14. Investi
gation of the atl.nrs of the various
bureaus of the I'ostoilice Depart
ment has been going on for some
time in so quiet a manner that the
employees have not generally!
known of it. 1 he first important
result was the discovery of the
stealing of many thousands of dol
lars by the disbursing officer. Col.
Burnside, and more recently the
systematic thieving by the clerk,
Bruggeman. who was engaged in
cancelling imperfect stamps re
turned from the manufacturers, was
brought to light. The investiga
tion has covered with more or less
care the principal branches of the
department proper, and it is under
stood that the Postmaster General
will probably weed out some of the
officials who, although not chargea
ble with wrong doing, are liable to
censure lor neglect to exercise
proper vigilance over the interests
entrusted to their care.
The Postmaster General asked
for the resign at ion of T. 1 '. Graham,
the Chief of the Postage Stamp
Department, to-day, and it was
promptly tendered and accepted.

; V. HKNDRICKS AND SECRETARY
At the ratification meeting, or
; something of the kind, held at In
d: r-apolis on Saturday night last
Mr. lir.NDKKjcs was to be present
and make a short speech in which
it was expected he would signify
whether he would accept the nom
ination of the Chicago Convention
for Vice-President or not. This in
itself made it an important meeting
in the eyes of all political watch
men, hence anything done or said
a' that meeting would be brought
to the notice of more persons than
any similar meeting that has or
will be held during the campaign.
Gov. Hendricks was present,
made a short speech, not only sig
nifving an acceptance of the nom
ination, but hiy ing' down some of
I the purposes of the campaign and
showing the necessity for reform iu
the civil service of the government.
As was most natural he alluded to
the investigation of fraud in the
Medical Bureau of the Naval De
partment and quoted the evidence
given before the investigating com
mittee by Secretary Chandler him
self. Nothing could be fairer than
to giro the administration the
benefit of the sworn testimony of
the head of the department in which
the fraud had been committed. If
anyone could paliate it, he certainly
could, but Secretary Chandler
thought it lacking iu "decent fair
ness " and thrust a fulsome letter to
Gov. Hkndrm'Ks before the public
b means of the Associated Press,
to which Gov. Hendricks penned
tic tollowing reply:
Indianapolis, July S4.
7coi. IC. K. Chandler:
sir: I And in the newspapers
this morning a letter to me from
oiirself. written yesterday, and
en culated through the Associated
Press. You complain that i did
you injustice in an address to the
people of this city, made the eve
ning before. Iu that address I
urged that ' we need to have the
books in the Government office
opened for examination," and as
an illustration I cited the case of a
fraudulent voucher in one of the
bureaus of 3'our department, and
stated that upon your testimony
before a sub committee of the Sen
ate it appeared that the frauds
Amounted to fG,3, 000; and is not
every woid of that truef You were
brought before the committee and
testified as I stated. You admitted
uader oath that the snm ol money
lost amounted to 03,000, but your
defence was that the embellzement
did not wholly occur under your ad
ministration, but that a part of it
was under that of your predecessor.
It seems to have covered the period
from June 21, 1SS0, down to
January 2.1, 18S4. Does that
help your ease! You were
were at the head of the department
a year and nine mouths of that
period, and your predecessor about
one year and ten months. He was
in oflice at the payment of the first
false voucher, on June 21, 1880, and
up to April 17, 1882, when you came
in. and you there continued until
the last false voucher was paid,
Jan. 2.1, 1884. The period was al
most equally divided between your
self and your predecessor. How
much of the 03,000 was paid out
under yourself aud how much under j
your predecessor your letter does
not show. Put, sir, upon the ques
tion that I was discussing, does it
make any difference who was Secre-1
tarv when the la! e vouchers were!
I urged that in cases liko this, !
when fraud.' are concocted iu the
vaults or in the oooks of the de
partment, the only remedy of the'
people is by a change of the con
trol, so that the books and vouchers
shall come under the examination
of new and disinterested men. Do
oii think 1 am answered when you
s.i 1 was mistaken in supposing!

How to be of Ileal
I'-e hi (he
Farmers are to be depended upon,
take them all together, to be con
servative to the detriment of their
own interests, even when special
effort is made to demonstrate to
them in a 'iaxebencvolcnt way. iu
what course their real interest lies.
The only way the agriculture of any
long-settled section is radically
changed, is hy individuals com ing
in, and beating the old farmers ;it
their own trade, raising better
crops, better stock, making better
batter and cheese', beef and pork,
and of course making more money.
A man ifihe really wants to benefit
his neighbors, makes a great mis
take if he undertakes to enlighten
them, to show or explain his meth
ods, theories, etc. Xo, he must
make a mystery of it, telling them I
that they cannot do the same; that
this and that are his secrets: that
they must find out for themselves,
etc. They must be absolutely driven
off their own ground before they
will change. This is actually oc
curring in all the oldest and long
est settled sections, by the incom
ing of foreigners. The young :;n n
have deserted the old farms, and nil
around thrifty foreigners are get
ting possession of them. The lii.sh
quick, smart, practical fellows
get together a little money, buy an
old place for a little cash, aud give
a mortgage. Thijigs may look like
distress, but wife, and boys, and
girls, all work in the field as vccl!
as in-doors, and there is money
enough to meet the interest on the
mortgage, to keep the family in
decent clothes, with a liberal ie
mainder for the church.
The German, when he buys, im
proves things very fast; even the,:
is neat about his place: his living
expenses are not half those of an
American family, and yet heiie
better. He has more plea;. ure ;;.
his food and in his amusements,
and more enjoyment with his famih ,
aud, as a rule, does more reading.
He begins with a poor little faim,
bat is ever improving. He goes
out to tlay's-work, while his w in
runs the farm. If there is any
teaming, plowing, digging of cell, i r.
and that sort of work, he finds time
to do it, and so he turns an honest
penny wherever he can. He knows
that manure goes twice a.s tar. a e
teu times as far in a liquid, as in ::
solid state, so his garden, and cab
bage patch, and tomatoes, and nli
those half garden crops, are wateied
with manure water. Thus a little
manure goes a great way, and he
beats the whole neighborhood w ith
his ''truck," w hich pays him three
or four times as much as any crop
the native American farmers about
Gradually they get into doing
similar things ou a small scale,
then on a larger, and finally true.:
ing and small fruits, and special
crops of one kind and another, are.
so to speak, all the rage. Mean
while, the Geiman has become a
rich man, and if he does let f .11

scale he will become a prou

death is a sad blow to the sorrow-1

Leicester township, reports that on i
the 20th of Juno there were three
water-.por.ts on North Turkey creek. ;
The damage done was greater than
ever before in that section. Rocks '
lung ficin 0,000 to 10,000 lbs.
were moved, also trees, saw logs
and fencing. One cow was drowned,
a mill dam washed away, besides
much damage to corn, rye and
wheat. George Chisholm, a young
man 1 or 16 years of age, while
bathing in the Svvauuanoa about J
miles from this place, was drowned
last Thursday afternoon. The river
was full at the eime, and all efforts
to recover his body hare proven of
no avail. He is doubtless covered
by the drifting sands, br passed
into (he French Broad beyond re
covery. We trust, however, that
these conjectures may prove incor
iect. We understand that the
widowed mother is now left child
less. May the God of the widow
comfort her in the dark hours of her
bereavement. V. S. Since the
ul-nve was put in type, the body
1ms been found. It had drifted

where the unfortunate young man
was drowned, and lodged on a log.

way down the river and acrosg Pamlico,
sound slowly but surely. Nothin'oe-

in talking;, singing, yarning, whistling,
etc., until the late hoTrrs of the night,
w hen most of us retired-to our bertliB M-
i-leep; but a a few short hourg brought
the early dawn, and wiUi ihe du'wn
brought Portsmouth in view. We wiere i
all up and on the lookjout; around us
could be ieen the following light houses-: l
Neuse River. Royal Hhoals. Brant Isbilwl. L
bouthwest l'oint and Harbor Island i all
stood out prominently in view. 'p
made haroor a
island of Portsmouth, the small boats!
were lowered and mot of us wpnt'l
ashore and took a passing vMw of thai
town. Portsmouth is a low, flat island, ,only I
a little above the level of the -flea; -fact,
Gapt. Abbott says that the entire ;
islandihas a few times been completely '
inundated by the heavy seas that they t
sometimes have down thera. There ar).
aboutseverity-five families on the IsLaod, 1
principally fishermenea captains' untl'f'
gilots, Water-bush and grasses of diC- k
ferent kinds cover the sand. Potatoes I
and garden vegetables grow in abund-
Tlie day being Sunday, some went to ,

we were all up and ready for bupiness; t
hunting and fishing parties were the
order of the morning; Sam Parsons down
to the beach, shooting birds, hunting tur-"
ties; Capt. Dave Styron and wife aver to ,
Hog Island to visit his father, aid va
his return, Dave said that a lajge gar,
about five feet long, jumped into the ,
boat: of course ho jumped out Rguu.
Capt. Stephen Roberts and Hudson wtiro'
ofr on an island near by shooting birds; I
but Capt. Ben Dixon and Davenport, i
with several ladies, came along in a I
boat going fishing and Hudson gave Bpj
the hunt and went with them. tf ,
course he oaught no fish, but had a good 1
time with the ladies. Chas. Blank went
over to Ocracoke on business. Capt. ,
Dave Roberts, W. K. Styron and year
reporter went fishing. Capt. Dave
caught the first fish; Konhie caught
ui'iif. iie wmiu not, mi siui, mere wa.s a
boatload of ladies near bjr that drew
his entire attention, therefore ho cold
not fish. Your humble servant beat
them all llahine-. Mr. iVkhp T.iwisitp'r niirf
several of the ladies remained on the
boat and spent the time fishing aud
We returned to the steamer about
eleven o'clock, when a trip (wer to
Ocracoke was propoeed. The plan was
announced, arrangements made and
after dinner aboui thirty or forty. Of
Portsmouth's fair daughters, including'
a few of the young gentlemen whr
loved ice) boarded the ata:ner and off;
we steamed. Among the married ladie.8
were Mrs. Allie Finch, Mrs. Mary Dixon,
Mrs. B. B. Davenport a-nd Mrs. Fantfie
Mayo, who seemed to enjoy the trip
equally as well aB any of the u'nmar-!
ried ones who were young ittad pretty,
lively and playful. Among too ,mauy
handsome ones we take the liberty of
mentioning Misses Angie Roberts, Win
nie Dixon, Linney Bragg, Georgie
Mayo, and Jonescy JiobeTts, who had
an accordeon along', with which she and
several otners maae tne Deet-oi music.
Besides the music on the accord eon, oc
casional strains of vocal music could be
heard ifom the lower deck and ladies'
saloon, all of which were well rendered.
We had a most delightful ride across
to Ocracoke. In passing we wereshown
the place now knownaa Teaches' Hole,
where the famoyjirsea pirate, Capt.
Teach, wis caught and beheaded by the
English a hundred years ago or more.
And on by Ocracoke Inlet, that leads
out to aea. At that plac the ocean,
sound, banks and the surroundings are
altogether a delightful scenery. It is
said to be the grandest and most beauti
ful coast in the South.
We lauded at Ocracoke and were met
at the wharf bv a party of ladies, among
whom were Miss Liila Fairer and Miss
Roberts, of Washington, Nearlj- all tin
party wrnt tip to seetheliftht house
which is in the center of the town,
built of brick anil between 75 ami ion
feet in height. The Keeper, Mr. How
ard, and his amiable wife showed every
attention possible to the visitors. Mr.
Howard taking all who wished up to
the top of the light boose, which nave
them a full view of the waters iiiouml
Ocracoke is a better looking place
than Portsmouth ; more families, belter
looking residences, mors places of busi
ness, a good hotel with about one hun
dred summer visitors. The live oak
trees are abundant.
A portion of the party went over to
Capt. Meriam's, who is doing a good
business in the mercantile lino, who
kindly took us into his elegant sailboat
back to the steamer, thus saving lis a
long aud wearisome walk down the
sandy beach. We all hoard tho steamer

At U o'clock Tuesday morning we
rai-ed anchor and started for home. On
neai ing Swan Island some one proposed
that we f-top and get some bird pres.
when all at once agreed. When Swan
Island was reached the boats were low
ernd and some five or six went ashore.
It was about noon and perfectly calm.
