I think that John is about fifty;
years old, and it does him good to
talk to :uy children about the old
times, and how he was bornd in
the Alabam. and he fell to his
y "ling mistiss w hat got married and
moved to oid i ' n t n a m and den np
hue. and how he used to hunt de
possum and do coon and fooler up
de ole bonus mos all night wid mas
sa and the boys, and work all de
nex day same as ever, and howl
Satday nights ho used to go ten
miles to see a gal he were shinin
and lie had to be o.ick homo by sun-1
rise .i Monday inoriim and one time'
he oveislep hisself and hoar do ole
rooster crow tor davbrako, and he,
bounce up and took hisshoes in his
hand and strike a trot for homo,
and he was gwine toard de wes
li,ir do sun sots and dat giv him
de vantage and he run and do day
broke, run and he run, and de day
broke, inn and sometimes when he
rise do hill do day broke gain on
him a little, and he look back and
git skeerd tor he kuowed dat de
overseer get 1 1 1 iii if he warn't dar.
and den he spit on his hands anil
mond his trot down do hill anil
away long do h-vi-l road, and he
gam on de day brake, and ho run
and ile day brake rim, and binie by
do day brake overtake him good anil
was passm' by and gettin ahead,
and it were only one hour to sun
rise and he had live miles to go and
lie knew he could make dat. and
shoic euiiil at do top ot do next long
hill hr hear de lug bugle blow and
he slops to rest a minute, and say.
tank do 1 .oi il. tank do Lord. ver
sed not gwine to git nigger dis
time, tor dat bugle was de warniu
to git up. and it was an hour to
work time. So I puts on my shoes
and strikes a fox trot agin and gits
dar c"s as de overseer was a look in
round, and I hear him say, ' liar's
John." and I draws a big bref and
s.iv. Here 1 is.' ;,.; l,ke I'd been

Then John looks round and
laughs and pauses a moment for the
children to say. Tell on John,"
Dabs a fak." Chillun, I's tellin

-Mr. 1. .an's bill, to increa.se the etii-1
ieiicy of the army. wa.n then taken UL.
1. gan ilepreciateil the introduction
t p ait.es in this question of strength
ening the army. It was not a political
l ue.-tion. and all political parties should
favor the proposed measure.
Mr. Idumb opposed the measure. The
dangers from Indiaai troubles were con
stantly becoming less and less. The
present proposition was one calculated
to develop more frills, furbelows, shoul
der straps and decorations. The Ameri
can people did not need armies. Our
army was the most expensive in the
world. Livery soldier cost us S1.0C0.
while the laborer earned only about
? 1"0 a year.
Tlus remark Mr. bosun said might be
misunderstood. The soldier did not get
-Si .('00 a year. He did iwpt get half the
pay of a laboring man.
Mr. Plumb characterized the bill as a
discrimination in favor of the aristoc
racy of the army the cavalry, artillery
A hot debate ensued between Messrs.
Logan and Plumb, the former maintain
ing that every soldier in the army was
entitled to at least S16 a month, and the
latter asserting that the pay of common
laborers in the country was not in
Referring to the latter remark Mr.
Logan said ho did not mean to charge
any Senator with demagoguery, much
less the Senator from Kansas, to which
Mr. Plumb responded, "I know the
Senator does not. He does it all the
same, but I can stand." If he had the
power. Mr. Logan said, he would in
crease the pay of the laborers through
out the country.
At 2 p. m. the ytenate decided to take
up the bid for the admission of Wash
ington Territory. The bill was tem
porarily laid aside, and Mr. Plumb con
tinued his remarks in opposition to the
Army Elliciency bill. He said the army
officer's place w-as the '"fattest" place iu
Mr. Logan defended his position on
the bill. It -was an unwarrantable as
sumption. Mr. Logan said, for any Sena
tor to intimate or insinuate that the bill
was now introduced with the view to
any impending difficulty between labor
and capital. It was an unfounded and
unworthy insinuation. Referring to
the suggestion that the increase of the
army was wanted for Bhow, ' for a
circus," Mr. Logan repelled it. The
people, he said, did not want any "show"
about it. They had "show" and "circus"
enough in the Senate; and while the
senatorial circus was on he did not
know any more active performers than
die Senators who were opposed to this
At 4 :'0 p. m. the Senate went into ex
ecutive session. At 5:35 the doors were
reopened and the Senate adjourned. .
Huist Under the call qf States Mr.
Liwler introduced a preamble and res
olution, which was appropriately re
ferred, reciting that the recent corrts-1
pondence between Messrs. Powderly I
and Gould raises an issue of vital ini- j
portance to the tranquility of the coun- i
try and the general welfare of the peo- I
pie, and directing the Committee on
Labor to investigate and report the un-'
deriving of the differences existing be-1
tweon the employers and employees of i
the rail way companies and other com
mon carriers. j
CUher bills and re soluti. ins were im.ro- !
duced as follows : j
By Mr. Woodford (Ky.). granting a
pension of $i a month to all honorably
discharged soldiers or 6ailors who serv
ed iu in the L'uion army during the late ;
w ar. and directing the Secretary of the .
luteriorto turnish. artihciai limbs, or
other equivalent in money, to Confeder
ate soldiers or sailors who lost legs or
arms in the war.
Hy Mr. Willis (Ky.) To aid in the
establishment and temporary support of
the common schools.
Mr. Willis moved to refer tho bill to
the Committee on Labcr.
Mr. Miller (Tex.) moved asan amend
ment that it be referred to the Commit
tee ou Education.
Mr. Willis explained that the bill was
i Jentical with the Blair bill.
Mr. Miller's amendment was lost by
a vote of 115 yeas 133 nays.
Mr. Willis" motion was agreed to by a
vote of ISO yeas to 113 nays, and the
Liucational bill was referred to the
Committee on Labor.

never made the Semite chamber ring
with recitals of services he had rendered

' that the Senator from Maine (Mr. Hale)

l Senators: that was the language he had

self, for he did not know that it fitted,
Mr. Teller said he understood the
i Senator (Mr. Logan) to say and that
I was the way ic went to the country of
j course that was the fault of the press
j that there was outside opposition.
' Quite a long and heated debate ensued
between Messrs. Logan and Teller on
the subject of what the former had said
when referring to the opposition to the
General discussion then followed as
to order of business.
Mr. Piatt had the right to the floor on
the Washington Territory Admission
bill, but yielded for Mr. Teller to finish
Mr. Teller then reviewed some of the
points made by Mr. Logan in the debate
on the bill, but saw in them no sufficient
argument for the proposed increase.
Debate on the Army bill then closed,
and Mr. Piatt addressed the Senate on
the Washington Territory bill, earnestly
urging its passage.
Mr. Voorhees introduced a bill for the
admission of the Territory of Montana

cussion the Postoffice Appropriation
bill, during -which a lfvelr tilt occurred
between Mr: McMillan (Tenn.) and Mr.'

sion the Hotise adjourned.
Senate. March 31. The Army bill
was again taken up. and debate was
continued by Messrs. Logan, Plumb and
At 2 o'clock the chair laid before the
Senate the Washington Territory bill,
but Mr. Dolph. who had the floor,
yielded to Mr. .Vance, who wished to
speak in support cf his bill to repeal the
civil service. law. Mr, Vance said that
all the present difficulties between the
President and toe- Senate were due to
the a-t falsely called "An act to regu
late and improve the ciyil service of
the United States." He had introduced
a bill, which his present remarks were
intended to support, for the purpose of
repealing that act. Mr. Vance created
much amusement by reading a suppo-
I sitious conversation between an imag-
inary "old Democrat" and an equally
imaginary representative of thegovern
: ment, in which the old Democrat, bear
I ing in mind all the years of Democratic
' exile, confidently approaches the repre
I sentative, expresses his joy at "our vic
tory," and says he has come to get a
' place. The representative of the gov
I eminent receives him rather coolly and
' assures him he is too old. When the
i old Democrat's disappointment has been
sufficiently expressed, he .recommends
1 his son. who is young and active: but
the Government representatives with
many "ahems!" explains the workiDg
of the civil service system, and when
the old Democrat inquires whether all
Republicans in office had got in under
the civil service system and had been
subjected to the necessary examination,
the government representative replies
that he is troublesome; that he should
not ask impertinent questions, and
shows him to the door, Baying. "Away
with you. " Mr. Vance said this was no
fancy picture. There were thousands
and thousands of men like that old
Democrat, and they were the strength
of the Democratic party. They had
been its refuge in the past; Mr. Vance
waB not quite sure that they would be
its champions in the future. They
would not fight to win Demociatic
victories for Republican'benefit. They
believed that if a man were raised to
the place of his ambition by his friends
he should give Bis trienoa preterence
over his enemies. So did Mr. Vance.
They also believed that the man found
wanting in gratitude might likewise be
found wanting in other kindred and
I cardinal virtues. Mr. Vance was fre-
niient.lv annlauded bv the ealleries in
1 the course of his remarks.
An executive session was held, after
which the Senate adjourned.
I House. Mr. O'Neill, of Missouri,
! from the Committteeon Labor, reported
I a bill to provide for a speedy settlement
j of the controversy and differences be

Foyland, March 30th..
This school which has been success
fully conducted by Mr. John A. .Morris
during a period of four months, closed
March 2Gth with a public -examination
and an exhibition; which gave general a
satisfaction to parents and others
concerned, that Mr. Morris has faithful
ly exercised bis duty as teacher. 'The ;
number enrolled during the ;term was
eighty-three and the average attendance
was fifty, which show-B that it was es
sential for him to work or fail com
pletely. After the examination was over, the
school, beaded by the drums of the Key
stone Band, marched into tbd yard and
around the house of Wm. Foy Esq.
After promenading the yard of Wm
Foy, Esq., it marched back to the school '
house,, where a table, covered with i
every variety of food that is tempting'to'
the appetite, was waiting to be eased of '
The exercise of the night began at 7:30
p. m; : so intense was the assembly until
standing room was at a premium. At
the time appointed, the curtains were
drawn aside as if bv maeic, when a
scene of moving beauty and brilliancy
charmed the observers. After singinp;
and prayer, declamations, dialogues and
orations were very entertaining. Wm.
Foy, Esq., being present was called on,
arose from his seat and made ari able
address. He spoke in a clear and forci
ble manner on the educational issues of

have been conducted with dramatic ef
I feet and was carried with martial pre

grace and gayefcy and grandeur which'

magnificent display of exhibitions ever

A Model Farmer of Jones County.
Me. Editor: In the person of J. B.
BaDks, Jones cpunty, and other citizens
whose interest is identified with1 the
successful farmer of Jones, may feel
proud to know that Mr. Banks has made
as great success as a farmer as any man
in Eastern North .Carolina. "Within
twenty years, he has bought and paid
for five large plantations. Land fifteen
years ago, that was worth about one
dollar, by improvement, is now .worth
8130 per acre. Land fifteen ye&rs'ago
that would not sprout cow peas, now
yields one bale of cotton per acre. He
will soon have a new ground consisting
of one hundred and twenty acres. Be
fore using cotton seed for manure, he
grinds them. He sells every year bales
of cotton by the hundred. May his suc
cess light the path-way and encourage
the hearts of other farmers. 0.
