day by Mr. Call, ff Florida, in

consideration, Mr. Berry remarked
that "the law had neen called uon
partisan, but' h9 believed that it
was a regular party machine, which
was nsed to keep the Republicans
in office. It was alleged, he said,
that five out of every six persons
employed in the classified eervic

and that was unfair and un

he did know that the civil service

Democratic administration. He be
lieved that a Democratic
President ought to be
surrounded byj political friends,
and not by those who were contin

make his administration a lail

Without disloyalty to the Union,
it may tie said that, tbe people of

them is not being realized,
and the Moses whom they
fondly hoped would lend
them to a Canaan, flowing
with milk aud honey, seems to be
lost in the wilderness. The princi

the unrepealed law of tbe party,

turn hopefully to the State. Here

voiceil in the Wilmington Messenger
I lately, to which vc alluded at the time
I has been pictty widely noticed, exlntcts
taken from it and in some ca-ees the
i efitire article copied.
Col. Hall's estima.e ol New IWne as ;
the centre ol future wealth is based on
I good grounds. There is every indication
that such; a condition is coming, and
ami coming rapidly. Lund are increas- I
ing in value, the erection of new build-j
ings never ceases the year round, and the j
demand for them keeps up with the up- j
ply as last us they are built, it might be ,
nearer correct to say that the demand
for them i the cause ot their being i
built for as people realize the manifold !
advantages of New Heme, natural and j
acquired homes are sought among us and
the city is growing with each month that
Capitalists are realizing that .New
Berne is going rapidly forward on a solid
basis and investments are being sought
We copy the following Irom the Wil
mington Messenger and endorse it fully.
While impressed with Col. Hall's en-
e'gy and eluciency us
and efficiency us a Government
Dthcer in the discharge ol his duties, we
are more impressed with his efforts to
bring into public notoriety the almost
unknown value of Eastern North Caro
lina as a commercial and particularly
agricultural portion of the continent of
We are satisfied if the pi inters of Del
aware, New Jersey and other .lorthern
fruit and truck lands, were aware "I the
immense advantages that portions of
North Carolina possess over their lands
and clinrate, they would migi'ite in great
numbers and bring abundant capital
with them to utilize the advantages to
the utmost extent.
From tho Virginia line all the way
down the North Carolina coast, every
acre and surrounding can be fully and
valuably utilized. The great waters of
the Albemarle aud Pamlico sounds
abound with advantages ot the best oys
ter and fishing trade in the Union. Eliza
beth City, beautiful in its youth, stands
surrounded by advantages of great de
velopment surpassed by no
spot on the coast. The old historic
and colonial town of Edenton has a
State history that every North Carolinian
should be proud of. The fanning lands
adjoining the sound were before Ihe war
the garden spot of the Slat", ii not ol
the continent, fjr be it remembered that
less than a century ao North Carolina
stood third on the list of the grain pro
ducing States of the Union, and owing
entirely to those lands and their products
Hyde county to-day is certainly the great
est grain producing county in North
New Berne, Col. Hall thinks, is the
centre of future wealth, and ul all the
most magnificent summer resorts with
wuich the eastern coast is filled, he c.xv
presses the opinion that Svvansboro, Ons
low county, would certainly take the
lead if it had the ordinajy moans of
railroad transportation. The town is
situated at tbe entrance of White Oak
river into Bogue Bay. with an inlet of
150 yards width and 13 feet depth. The
bay is three miles in width opposite the
town and is separated from the ocean by
a fine sea beach covered with tine forest
trees tint could be made a splendid grove.
The locality ot the town moreover is
all that could be desired for health pur
poses. Col. Hall states that the soil sur
rounding is Admirably adapted to truck
and fruit farming and the ordinary pro
ducts ot the soil. As soon as a railroad
brings it in connection with the outside
world, Col. Hall says it will speak lbr it
self. The time is rapidly approaching
when t.naf portion of North Carolina will
not only be the finest inNorth Caroliua but
on the entire A tlantic coast of the Uni-m,
on account ot its agneuh ure and pine
lumber futilities, oyster and lidi advan
tages, naval stores, climate advaiit.iis
and healthful location. Wi i miiij ton

Newspaper publishers, probably like

In getting out the Fair Edition of the

seless and dazed, as orbett rushed at
him, and swinging his right smashed
a terrific olow squ ire on Mitchell's jaw.
The Englishman led heavily on his side,
roiled over on his face, senseless and
knocked out. Corbett ciid not look at
IiRji again. Any man w ho could have
struck that blow would know that th
man who received it would have to be
canicd out of the ring.
Even before the formality of counting
out the defeated man had been gone
through with Corbett was being hugged
by his delighted friends and attendants.
TOO QT ICK for realization.
The spectators were nearly na craay
with CAciterneiit as the men oh the plat
form, and no one left the arena until
alter Mitchell's seconds had lifted him up
and carried him to his corner. The
lightning-like work of Corbett in the
round had been too rapid for most of
the spectators to follow and understand.
They saw Mitchell 'mocked down three
times in rapid succession; saw him
stretched out senseless and bleeding but
how it was done wa3 a question which
was asked by hundreds of men who had
been staring at the deed they asked to
A UEVENGFCL KNOCK-OUT BLOW.
Those whose experience at the ringside
enabled them to keep their senses and
closely watch the only contestant in the
ring who could act, saw that Corbett had
struck .M;..chell ibat last awful blow to
not alone knock him out, but to punish
him alio. There was the hatred of years
concentrated in that blow and a rage that
could no; oe controlled by Corbett him
self, whicii urged him to strike bis antag
onist while he was struggling in the arms
ol his seconds.
Delaney and Dempsey were struggling
with Corbett at one time, aud were
scarcely able to hold him Irom rushing
at Mitchell while the latter was on his
knees. Delaney suddenly slapped Cor
l.ett's face. It was not u love tap by any
means, but a blow that would knock over
many a man. It served iis purpose for
it brought Corbett to his senses, and he
went to hie seat. Mitchell had only one
second more to regain his fret.
He got up si wly and as . slowly Cor
bett walked towud him. Tne veterans
in anil about ti'.e ring knew, whit wis
comine; ihe howling maniacs surround
ing them were watching the tottering
Briton. Corbett walked toward Mitchell
politely walking aiouud Referee Kelly on
his way. He measured his distance,
looked a moment contemptuously at
itchell, and then, with a startling sud
denness, swung his right, lan ling square
ly on Mi'ciiell s left j iw. It was not ti e
swinging blow that Sullivan delivers,
but a blow that stares with the arm
drawn well back and the first almost
j upposite the ear. It begins wiih a swing
ami ends with a straight shoot. When it

The universal verdict is that Corbet t

"For many years past I have t -'t it to
be a ii ty, w henever an appropriate occa
sion presented itself", to call public atten
tion to the fact that our State is the only
civilized country on earth, which is still
destitute of a single memorial stone, eret-

produced a man or a-i event worthy ol

Richard Caswell at Kinston, but ii was
erected chiefly by the Masons the State
subscribing only a fraction ot the sum
required and there are a very few others
erected by communities or individuals,
but not one by the State itself."
These are facts known of all men and
aie hardly creditable to us as a people.
A Nation unmindful of its past, or forget

In our immediate neighborhood there
is the desecrated grave of a former New
Bernian who was eminent and distin
gilished in our Colonial and Itevolution
ary days, its very location known to
comparatively few, that of Abner Nash,
who is I uried at "Pembroke," his old
limitation, on the south bank of the
River Trent, about three miles south-west
of New Bern, near wheie was once,
and may still be, a ferry on the old
The burial ground, without enclosure,
and covered with a rank growth of bram
bles and briars, lies in the midst of a
cotton field. The graves of Gov. Nash,
(who died in 1786), and of his daughter;
though now but little more than a trench,
are still plainly marked, hilt the
gravestones are gone and most of the
brick which formed the gravis; having
been taken, it is said, by the Federal
soldiery, during the late war to build
hearthstones and chimneys for their win
ter quarters. The writer has been told,
too, that the marble slab which once
covered the grave of Governor Nash,
was later used as a block upon which to
cut meat, and it was intimated that it is
in New Bern now, in use for some such
purpose. As to the truth of this, nothing,
of course, is known, but it may be worth
while to enquire whether anything is
known oi it.
One can hardly imagine a more forlorn
and desolate spot than the old graveyard
now, overgrown, plundered and deserted.
What a commentary upon greatnessl Of
the old homestead, too, hard by, the
foundation only remains. Abner Nash
was foremost amojg the men twho con
tended for the rights of the Colonies, was
leader of those who compelled the flight
of th,e Royal Governor Martin from New
Bern, having first taken Irora him
several pieces of cannon; for which, and
other acts. Martin reported him to the
home government as the "principle pro
moter of sedition.'1
Nash was prominent in our Provincial
Congresses before and during the War of
the Revolution, serving in 1776 as one of
the committee that formulated the Con
stitution of our State. Under that Con
stitution he was the second Governor of
the State, at a critical period of the war,
and several tin.es represented New Bern,
and Craven and Jones Counties, in the
General Assembly. He was also one of
our delegates in the Continental Congress,
in w hich service he died; and now "none

Good Weather Bureau Service.
Ever since the middle of the day on
Wednesday New Bernians have been ac
quainted, by the meaDs of the weather
bureau service at Messrs. Hackburn &
Willett's store, with the comingof the
cold wave now upon us.
For a year past this firm has secured
the weather forecasts and promptly made
public, to the great satisfaction of our
citizens, both by hoisting the weather
signals and displaying the telegram on a
bulletin board in front of their store as
s on as they were received. Tho faith
fulness with which they servo the public
in this respect is commendable, and the
convenient location of their store in a
central and most frequent part of the city
makes it easy for our people to acquaint
themselves with the information thus
The Journal, according to custom,
gave news of the approaching bad weather
and will continue to do so when changes
of note are at hand so that all whether
they have noticed the signal or not may
know what weather to expect.
