all that is ordinary.
Then some reason must exist
rather than fitness, if indeed the
Pesident intends to nominate Mr.
Miller for the high position o)
, justice of tbe Supreme onrt.
The reason assigned with most
plausibility is the desire to recog
nize the services of Clarkson by
giving him a place in the Cabinet.
I The plan is to appoint Miller to the
i vacant judgship, make Noble Attorney-General
and Clarkson Sec
retary of the Idtejior. This move
ment would strengthen Harriaoni
anism in the Cabinet and make tbe
political family more homogenious.
Blaine is not liked, but no man of
his ability can be despised. This
movement would Isolate him and
lessen bis power in the government
bat it would make his abilities
more prominent and his achieve
ments more splendid.

lutions asking the Governor nottoap-

of their action and lay before him their
reasons, which was done in writing 'r1

nished another steamer the next morn'
ing, and we headed for that region so
rich in Indian lore, Pungo river. What
a wide, beautiful stream it is. It only
heeds the illusion of moonlight and an
hour without wind or wave, to see again
the Hash of the Indian's paddle, and to
hear from Woodstock's silent shore the
hum of his council fires.
At the junction of' Pungo river and
Pantego creek we passed by steamer,
and afterwards visited by buggy, Jack's
Neck, where the Northern and Southern
have pitched the terminus of their rail
road. It is a most convenient and
suitable site for a depot. No pent up
Utioa of waters here, but a wide ex
panse, where by steam and sail the
navies of the world may come to
anchor. Thr conductor of the train,
before shouting, "all aboard for Eden
ton," wheels upon the platform of the
rear coach, and looks with one un
broken vision, past cape and bay, to
wards Pamlico Light to the very verge
of the Sound. Within a few feet of
the bhore large vessels can ride, and
the daily line of steamers which this
Company proposes to run to Newborn
will, in sevea hours from the Elm -City,
transfer their passengers to coach and
rail. Now when we come to consider,
that this railroad is already Half built,
and is expected to be finished in October,
we can imagine tbe fiery activities of
men outside Craven county.
Pantego, the point at which we left
i the steamer Beaufort and its gentle
manly commander, Captain Parvin, is
a flourishing little village, about thirty
miles east of Washington, and on the
direct road to Hyde county. It has
several churches, a number of pros
perous stores, and is surrounded by an
agricultural country at once fertile and
well cultivated. It seemed to us that
its chief chronic disorder was an un
fortunate grist mill, which catches and
holds all the floods of rain, overflowing
and ruining the farms of the back
country, from which all the corn and
cotton are to bring the trade of Pantego
in the following fall and winter. This
seemed to a traveller on the wing as a
case of cutting off your nose to spite
your face. However as we have a num
ber of these disfigured cases nearer
home, we said nothing.
In the heart of Hasliu, an enchanting
rural district five miles farther east, we
spent an ideal vacation, such as tired
poets and authors spend in the shady
nooks and romantic dells of the Hudson.
are welt founded. We have never seen
cotton look smaller and sorrier at this
time of tbe year. Cotton that is con
sidered good is not more than half
what it should be. Avery extraordi
nary season will have to follow to make
anything like an average crop. Tbe
crops around Falkland, in Pitt, though I
not good, are much better than those j
spoken of above. j

In view of tbe fact that tbe rates of
transportation are the lowest that can
be obtained, and therefore put it in the
power of the largest number of our
farmers, specially those at a distance,
to come together for conference and
discussion, and of the further fact that
a great deal of interest in the way of
display of stock and farm products, will
instruct and benefit them: and the fur
ther fact that excursions will be run
from Northern cities to Raleigh during
the week, when an opportunity will be
given to owners of lands to meet those
who are desirous of inspecting them .
