Cleveland did not need advice, for
he neitber asks nor accepts it, but

If it is sa d that Mr. Greaham had

midnijjht and our first duty is to sleep
perchance to dream. Pull the shutters
wide open no human eye can get in a
position to look in here, that when the
morning corueth we may soonest ;atch
its kindling dawn. We look out but see
very indistinctly, although in every di
rection and over a wide area, a huudred
'ights are glancing. The broad illurui
tinted dials of two of the city's clocks
show clearly the passing In. nr. One is so
directly in front that as we 'ay our head
on the pillow, we re squarely face o
face. A clock ol "or molia" on
the mantel, could not in the stilly night

Onr two windows command a view ol
the finest part ot the city. Across the
street nearly opposite is the admirably
planned and constructed United States
building, of fine architectural proport
ions, with its handsome tower and ele
gant arched and carved entrance. The
illuminated clock, just mentioned, is two
or three blocks away, on the new Court
House, said to be the finest Court House
in the State. A little to the south of it is
the highest spire in the cilv, a beautiful
one that of the first Baptist church. In
nearly the sau.e line is the tall spire ot
the fiist Pr.'S .ytcrim church, also a beau

are eicellen, the rooms ample, conven

second floor is the fine Federal Court
room, with its nice and convenient ar
angunients ot rooms for the various officers
Judge, Jury, Dist. Attorney, Maishal,
Clerk etc. On this floor, too, are the
rooms of the Internal Revenue depart

Tli tower hns a fine clock with their
illuminated dials, and the various kinds
of apparatus for determining the temper
ature, amount of rain, directions and
velocity of the wind, &c , are on the sum
mit of the roof. The velocity of the wind
is indicated by four small hemispherical
cups, perhaps three or four inches across
placed Tertically upon cross arms, twelve
or thirteen inches long, which revolves
horizontally. The speed with which they
revol?e is registered, and shows the veloc
ity. Sometimes they move very rapidly,
sometimes very slowly but we have never
seen them at a stand still. The smoke
may rise ever so lazily from the adja
cent chimneys, and rush to right or left
or sink to the ground, but it is never so
quiet but the little cups chase each other
round tbe circle. We mut stop, but we
have not done with Wilmington yet.

RIVER IMPROVEMENT WORK.
The Freeing: of Veiise ItiTer ( hanuel
From Mumps Now in Progress.
For tbe pnst two yrur. Mr. V. 'A.
Chailbourne, L". S. Assistant Engineer,
liai been doing good service in thin dis
trict in river ami harbor improTement
work I iv removinir from Fas'. 0'n.rolin.i.
water those thing which were a bar to
navigation, or which were a niennee to
vessels lining our streams. In the Xeuse j
liver heretofore this work has lieen con-!
fined mainly lo tlic removal of logs, trees
ami siiaus. but three wteks ago lie began I
pullim; ui stumps from the channel of I
t :ie river. I
We paid a visit yesterday to where the
work was in progress, out in the channel
just in front ot the Lewis Ferry wharf
a little above the city, and were con
siderably surprised at what the investi
gation revealed to us regarding the nature
of tbe river's bottom.
We found that where the force
under overseer Durham was at work the
bottom of the channel had slumps in it
pretty near as thick as birge trees would
grow in a forest,
us the interesting
Mr. Chadbourne gave
information that the
stumps are found entirely across the river;
as far up and down it as be has examined i
until the joint is reached where the water
j becomes salt.
( These s'umps indicate unmistakably
that at tlr; time they grew the Xeuse
river was not flowing just where it Joes
now, but as nearly all the stumps are
cypress the na'ural presumption :s tbat
the present river course was low swampy
hind wnen they flonrished. In the work
ol removal no attention is paid to the
shallow water clearing the channel is
the object aimed at.
One of the stumps pulled up lust week,
near where the hoisting machine is now
working, measured six leet in diameter.
One that we witnessed them at work on
was near the same size. The stumps was
broken into several pieces by dynamite
iu order to release its hold on the bottom,
but one of the roots taken up ertirely was
about fourteen leet in length, and larger
around at tbe thick part thau a man's
body. The top of this stump, standing
in the channel, right where the tree grew
was seven feet below die surface of the
water, and yet it was charred across the
top showing that at some time in tbe
remote past it bad been on fire.
After we had witnessed tbe removal of
several pieces the hooks failed to do
their work. After a dozen or more
ineffective attempts recourse was again
had to blasting. The first thing pulled
up then was a big anchor of several hun
dred pounds weight. It was judged to
have been there about half a century, and
was no doubt lost by becoming entangled
in the stumps so that it could not be re
leased. Tbe action ot tbe water bad put
a curious appearance upon it. In some
places it has, upon a casual look, almost
as mich tbe appearauce olwoofV a of
The anchor and some of the big stumps
removed will be exhibited at the New
Berne Fair. It can thus lo seen,
to some extent, the benefit
of the work being done. One sharp
prong of the anchor was sticking directly
upwar.l and if a vessel had struck upon
it, trouble would have resulted, as it
would also if sonrj of the worst stumps
The Government should continue to
look out properly for all improvement
work; and entrench on expenditures that
benefit the public but little.

Mr. Josiah Daniels, of Hog Island while
out hunting with a friend last week had
the good luck to kill three raccoons at
one shot. He saw only one, and getting
into a very advantageous position he
blazed away, when down tumbled three

shot we ever heard of.

A Train Kills a Flying Hawk.
A large hen hawk flying along the line
of the W. N. & N. R. R. was struck and
killed by the locomotive of the regular
passenger train Thursday, when about
four miles from New Berne. Mr. W. S.
Kelly, the engineer observed the hawk
flying down sne side of the taack ahead
, of the engine and at last when the engine
was close upon him, he attempted to fly
across to the other side and met his
death as stated.
We doubt if another case can be shown
where a hawk was killed by an engine.

SI OOEHTION TO KXIIIIIITOHs.
Make your entries early, mid take your
exhibits to the grounds at the lime desig
nated in the rules, and don't at k to re
move them until the close of the Fair.
It is not a wise plan to conclude, be
fore you leave home, that the things you
are going to show are so macli better
than what anyone else will have, that
yours will take the premium as u matter
When you are unsuccessful, don't ex
pose your tempsr or disappointment by
loud and angry talk, and uncompliment
ary attacks upon the judgis. Judges
somtimes make mistakes, but they intend
to be honest, and their shortcomings, as
a rule, arc pure and simple errors of
judgment. It is often tbe case tbat there
is not room for decided judgment, and
the skill ol the best judges is overtaxed
to detect differences. A slight point
may have weight to turn the decision
against yoc; but still you are really lene
fitted by the show about as much as
though they marked tbe prize for yon,
because the public, being nware of close
contest, will fairly discriminate and rec
ognize tbe fact tbat your animal or arti
cle is a superior onc,quite an equal match
lor the prize one, and really good enough
for any body. Under provocation, bet
ter be silent thau noisy, that will bo
advertising your disappointment.
Don't growl and grumble, but make
allowances for the difficulties of running
a big Fair without some misfits. What
you can't put up with go to the officers
quietly, and it will bo remadied.
THE KSITTING FACTORY,
-Nearly Ready to Start Arala With Its
The New Berne Knitting factory, Mr.
Henry Rishton, proprietor, will resume
work next week in tbe quarters to which
it recently moved in a portion of the
machinery building of the East Carolina
Fair. Mr. J. R. Yost, foreman, arrived
Friday on the steamer Neuse from his
old home in Philadelphia and was en
gaged in placing additional knitting
n acbines in place for work; tbe new
machines will considerably increase the
capacity of the factory in fact they will
nearly double it.
Tbe factory w'll hereafter make some
finer grades of hosiery than it has hereto
fore been doing. The machines have
!een so placed that the operations will bo
a part of the exhibit in Machinery Hall
during tbe Fair.
Mr. Yost, who now "takes charge of
thefactory for the first time is a good,
practical, energetic man, just such a citi
zen as we need many of and the factory
will no doubt go forward to larger
profits and to increased usefulness to tho
community under his management.
National Bank Officers.
The following are the newly elected
National bank officers :
Directors : Tbos. Daniels, J. A. Bryan
J. H. Hackburn, John Dunn, G. II.
Roberts and E. K. Bishop of the city;

President : J. A. Bryan.
Vice President : Tbos. Daniels.

Teller, J. R. B. Carraway.
Clerk, J. E. Carraway.
These are tbe same officers and directors
throughout with tbe exception that
another director, Mr. E. K. Bishop. They
make an admirable selection; the flour
ishing condition of the bank attests the
wisdom of the reflection.
