Hallock, an ever welcome visitor to oar

for the purpose of attending the Fair and
in his early walk he was noticing with
delight the forwardness of vegetation
through the city. In his hand he held a
twig in full bloom wheih he had plucsed
!rom a plum tree, and he also spoke of
having sen peach blooms open also,
while willows were green and maples in
bud sufficient to show foliage and give
shade in a grove, while there were violets
by the million and hyacinths, bridal
wreaths, orange, jessamine, snow drops,
Japan qiunce, &c, were all getting bun

noticed two bushes of the litter (pink

basket factory combined.
Mr. Chas. Hallock is the prime mover
in the scheme. Yesterday he set out an
acre of Judge Uenry R. Bryan's farm
across Trent river opposite New Berne in
the true basket willow. By the fall these
plants will furnish as many cuttings as
are wanted to set out an indetienite num
ber ofacrts and if everything moves
aright lor its development, as we consid
er it almost certain to do, the industry
can be in full blast nex' year.

tion of what are used m the Lint' 1 Mates.
$5,000,000 worth of m-it.-i i-.il are
annually imported from that country.

Tuesday was a grand day for the East
Carolina Fair. The programme was
carried out in every particular and in a
very creditable manner.
The paratle, the firt event of the day
was all that coulU be expected, the
speech of Gov. Carr, delighted all, the
racing was excellent, the balloon ascen
sion was uever equalled arouud here, the
trotting dog was a pleasing novelty, tli2
shows are better than usual, and the ex
hibits, as we outlined yesterday, are of an
exceptionally high order diversified
abundant, many of them along new lines;
and all the vast uumber ot people at
tending found plenty to keep them busy
at sight seeing and enjoying themselves
from early morn until the closing hour at
uight both oi the grounds and in the
buildings. The only trouble was to keep
up with all that going on.
In other words, Tuesday, not generally
regarded as a big day was one it was
more like Wednesday generally is, a cene
of activity both at the grounds and on the
Each regular and special train and the
steamers uelped sensibly to swell the
crowd. The Fair officials say the at

general eitimate is somewhat higher.
Superiority reigns characteristic of the
Fair in general, and the States exhibit
is not only of a high class but much of it
is entirely new to many eastern peo
ple. The State has made a wise move in
bringing the knowledge of its interior
and western resources home to the peo
ple ot the east, who are comparative
strangers to the mining and quarrying
industries of our great commonwealth.
Not only does this exhibit bring it to the
attention of our own people but to many
visitors Irom beyond the borders ot the
State who would be reached in no other
way. We are glad as Caroliuians that
the exhibit is here.

The two former ptoducts if I in iy

I have good reason to believe that
more favorable spot exists anywhere f
the prosecution of this comparatively new
industry and the assertion is by no means
the reckless speculation of an idle fancy.
Our opportunities lor oyster cultivation
are simply unparallellcd. In many coun
ties sea bottoms, or rather the bottoms of
the shallow waters, have been put unde
cultivation. The same amount of labor
applied to our own would annually pro
duce more oysters than have been taken
along our whole shores for the past 2
We have indeed a gieat future before
us in this respect, but it is with this, as
wit'.: every industry in the world, it can
only be developed by the exercise of gooc
udgment thrift andipatience.
But while nature lias been liberal in
the matter ot the oyster she has been
prodigal in fhe supply of every species
of fish, which fairly swarm in the waters
of the State. Everywhere you have then

There are doubtless som among you
who do not realize that last year 10,00i)
barrels of clams valued at $20,000 and
$300,000 worth offish were shipped from
this section to all pai ts of this country
and that more than 2,000 people arc em
ployed at remunative wages in this great
work, and that in 1892, half a million
bushels ot oysters were caught aud
shipped and canned, employing at that
time thousands of men which industry
we hope to see revived in the near future.
Not only has the sea furnished you in
tbundance all its treasures, but the soil
itself is no less beneficent as witness here
the'magniflcent display of everything
that can be grjwn in garden or field.

by comparison I am ciedibly informed
that 40,000,000 pounds of tobacco were
marketed in the city of Danville, Va.,
last year valued at $3.15 per hundred
and making a total valuation of $8,275,
000 as compared with $3,280,000, the
value ot truck and other products
shipped from this post alone. I might
add more but it seems to mt useless.
I have on more than one occassion
heard it stated that the soil around New
Berne would produce annually three or
four crops of truck that it was the garden
spot of the country. . , The only
advantage this immediate section has
over almost the entire section of Eastern
North Carolina in quick transportation
and competing rates. There are him
