The personnel of the committee
is an assurance of thorough and
rigid investigation. Morgan is ac
customed to going to tha bottom of
all questions of public policy with
out fearjor favor. Gray is the accred

is the personal and political friend
of Kx-njnjister Stevens. Jn the very
nature of things there can be
no concealment nor evasion.
But the more pleasing thought
is associated with tbe fact that the
Committee is composed of States
men who are large enough to take
in a great national question and
consider its bearings as they
relate to national development,
honor and rights.

some memento in commemoration of thit
great pvent, the lli-t icttlement ol the

be a sacred spot, the Mto a of genera- j
tions yet unborn; and it will be to us of;
the present day, a reminder, that from
this small beginning, has risen the might
iest nation on the globe.
It is the spot, where, Virginia Dare,
the tirst white child born in the limits of
the United States, saw the light; the first
spot from which Christian prrfyera as-.
cende'd to heaven, the tirst spot whereon
the Christian rite of Baptism wag admin

means for the carrying out of this great
project, as God has blessed us.
North Carolina is a grand old State,
but she has been slow in commemorating
great events that have taken place in her
borders, anil it is a reproach to lis,.
Had the settlement of Italeiah been
j made on New England soil, every incident
would have been told in song and story,
and the name of Italei-li would have
been i hroughout the land, a household
word. It is our duty to make that
spot upon Roanoke Island, sacred gruund,
and to hold it in the same reverencn that
the people of New England, hold Ply

On her mountains proud and lordly
Sat the City of the King,
Splendid, but to Gentile masters
Still her homage rendering;
Still the storied mount of Zion
Held the oracles of God,
Though no more by sons of Levi
Were the sacred pavements trod.
Boding portents of the heavens
Filled the souls of men with dread,
And the burning hope was cherished
That the power ol days lonw fled
Through Jehovatfs kindly favor
Might return to Israel,
Anil her .'rim and iron masters
From her sacred bounds expel.

Precious offerings they brought him,
Priceless treasures, gems and gold;
More than joyous in his presence,
They the s nless babe extolled;
While an angel choir above them
In a dolus full and free
Flung upon the air the accents
Of exultant melody.
In tbe ages that have followed
Never has that chorus died.
And the shame dimmed not the glory
When the Christ was crucified;
Peace and blessedness to mankind
Was the benediction sung
Sweetest song of all the ages
Voiced by man's or angel's tongue.
One there was who heard ami treasured
In her heart the things she heard.

Of th ellolv Spirit's word ;

Thank fal words her joy expressed.
Blessed those who thus shall treasure
All that has been sdd ami done

And the blessed Mary's Son.

As the Savior's natal day,
That it may be full of gladness
Let us all devoutly pray.

get well placeu at the points he visits.
They will be put up at every station of
importance throughout the whole State
and in portions of Virginia and South
Mr. Bull will pay more attention to
South Carolina this year than ever before
on account of the direct communication
that has been opened up by the W N &

are ejpeoted from that direction, and the
exhibit will no doubt be largely increased
thereby also. We hope specially to have
good exhibits from Wilmington and from
points all along the road in addition to

"I seldom find any body out of work j
except those who are looking tor some
thing that they are incompetent to per
form. A man who is able to adapt him
himself to circumstances and takes any
job w hich offers is never out of employ j

most that he is obliged to do anything
that is really benefit hi.- ability.
As soon hs he demonstrates lohisim
plover his fitness for a higher position, he
is sure to be promoted. Those ho.
aspire to something above their ability
how ever, are very numerous. Many ol
these are actually ignorant ot of the fact
that they are unqualified for the kind of
work they are seeking.
It would be a mercy to many such men
if some one would tell them kindly that
their search is in vain, because other nu n
are better qualified to perform the duty
they ispireto' lan themselves, and will
therefore be preferred. There is nianv a

Wants to lurestigate the Phenomenon.
Mr, E. S. Martin, Attorney-at-law,
Wilmington, N.C.,is desirious of account
ing for the remarkable celestial phenome
non of the 20th inst. To do this he wants
as accurate statements as possible along
the following lines :
1st. Exactly what was seen.
2d. Thj location in the skv when first
i and last seen.
3d. Its apparent size.
4th. If any noise was heard as it pass
ed along. If so, what kind.
5th. If it was seen to explode, and if
so whether sound was heard, and how
long it was alter the explosion before the
sound was heard.
Mr. Martin gives the above as special
points that are essential te a definite in
vestigation; but any and all information
is acceptable as it may become valuable.
He considers the third point the most
important one.au.l especially requests the
location by the points of the compass
when it can be given, or as near it as pos

how- many degrees apparently each cud
