No more the storm of battle glooms
Above the waving fields;
No more the cannon's thunder booms;
But earth with blossoms shields.
The soldier breasts that braved the fight;
Beneath the laureled sod
Tbey s!um'r in the living light
Ol glory and of God.
The faded flags no longer stream
Above those breasts so still;
The red swords of the lightning gleam
Are sheathed by vale and hill.
And Peace unfurls her banners white,
In tranquil winds to wave;
While Memory's tears in drops of light
Are rained above the brave.
After the fight the beio sleep
In God's unbroken rest,
And still the South in honor keeps
Her loved ones on her breast.
For sacred is the blood they shed.
And through the flight of years
The South shall bless her glorious dead
With her memorial tears.

'When I accepted your invitation to
speak of the record of our brave soldier i
made heroes by your patriotic encourage
ment and loving smiles, I kuew tbat my
untutored tongue could not do justice to
the subject ; but relying upon the patience
and sympathy of this cultured audience,
1 consented, believing however humble
the effort to help forward these services so
meritorious, instituted by our own loving
women, it would have the proper con
struction placed upon it.
In 1861 the two sections of this country
divided by Mason aud Dixon's lina were
asundered. There wa no sympathy and
nothing in common between the two sec
ions. The pent up feeling of iealousv
and hatred of extremists which had been
kept smothered by the conservative
patriotic men of both sections had broken
loose in thunder tones ; war was inevitable.
and our beloved state was to be one of the
actors in the great drama. But before
speaking of the part she took, would this
audience pardon me as I briefly sketch a
portion ot her hi.stoiy. the narration ot
which will g ve us some light on 'What we
might expect from her in this lamentable
North Carolina. (God bless her. our
hearts swell out with gladness whenever
we name her), was settled by the courtly
cavaliers and christian Huegenotg. Thev

kept the old story of glory brightly burn

The orator here gave a graphic descrip
tion of the indignity and cruelty inflicted
on James Davis, the ancester of those
here today by the B itish naval officers in
the revolutionary war.
North Carolina had declared the cause
of Massachusetts was the cause of
all. what might not be expect
ed from men with such ancestery?"
Then followed a mention of the Craven
county troops from CI to Go whom he
compared to the Spartan, encouraged by
like mothers. He then graphically por
trayed th3 gallanfry of the North Caro
lina troops on Gettysburg's fatal field.
"Such heroic suffering as the Confederate
soldiers suffered, has but one parallel in
history Napolean's retreat from Moscow.
But they were not all who sufl'ered.

article to Mayor Ellis which he has al
ready prepared on the subject. It is sur
prising to see how well posted Mr.
McDowell lias become in regard to what
New Bjrne is doing, its outlets, etc.
He will remain iu the city a (lew days
longer at Mr. W. T. Lane's and it lie
hooves those of our citizens who are in
formed ou anything calculated to induce

Married A Disappointed Congregation
On Wednesday evening the 9th inst.,
Mr. Geo. R. Simmons, of Dover, was
united in marriage to Miss Agnes W. De
Bruhl, at the reeidence of Mrs. Simn De
Bruhl, the bride's mother, at DeBruhl's,
Jones county, Rev. A. L. Ormand of
Craven circuit officiated.
The marriage was intended to have
taken place in the church at Tuscarora,
alxiut four miles distant, and preparation
had been made accordingly. The church
had been well decorated for the occasion
by friends of the contracting parties, and
as the hour for the ceremony drew near
it was filling up with people from the
surrounding country to witness it.
But the assemblage was doomed to dis
appointment. The minister, when the
time was almost at hand discovered that
the marriage license had been purchased
in Jones county, while the church was
located in Craven county, and according
to law the marriage must be performed
iu the same county in which the license
is issued. So informing the congregation
of how matters stood. Mr. Orniand
started in the direction of the bride's
home and met the party on the way to
They immediately went baek and were
married at the residence in the presence
ot the family and a few friends of the
immediate neighborhood and the crowd
at the church departed for their homes.
Three More Fountains in Position.
Three more drinking fountains were
put in yesterday one on Broad street
wbere'the old scales formerly stood just
below Middle street; one on Graves
street at the junction of Middle, aud one
by J. II. Hackburn's store at the junction
of Broad and (jueen streets.
One more remains to be put in, the
one on the macadamized road, the one at
first proposed to be placed by the Fair
ground but which is more likely to be
put a little lower down, probably by the
western gate of the cemetery.
The fountain near the junction of
Broad and Middle streets is the one first
intended for '.he junction of Queen and
Pollock. (McCarthy's store). The pres
ent arrangement was deemed better than
the first as it puts one fountain in 'each of
the five wards of the city.
The one ou Broad street and the one at
the junction of Middle and Graves, are
in the center of the street. We think
the placing of them thus was a mistake.
Though useful, and handy for the horses
to drink from, the hydrants in such a po
sition arc obstructions, and drive-ways
should lie free from obstructions. We
ixdieve if n accident should occur from
their leing placed where they are the
city would be liable for damages.
The Insurance They Carried.
The sufferers by the receat fire at More
head were insured through New Berue
agencies as follows:
The ice house building owned by the
Morehead City Ice Company, was insured

ard for $1,003.
Mr. Dauiel Bell's store had $1,500 in
surance, 1,000 of it was in the yEtna,
1250 in the Teutonic, both represented by
Mr. W. H. Oliver. The remaining $250
wis with the London , Liverpool and
Globe Company, by W. G. Brinson.
Mr, Bell's stock was insured as followr:
$1,000 in the Va., F. & M, by M. R
Howard; $750 in the L. L. & G. by W.
G. Brinson; $750 in the Teutonic, $1,000
in the JEtna and $1,000 in the Manches
ter the three last being represented by
W. H. Oliver.
The stoek in Mr. Bell's warehouse was
insured in the Va. State by M.R. Howard
This makes the total insurance $8,000
$1,000 on the ice house, $1,500 on the
store building, $5,500 on Mr.Bell's stock.
About $800 or $00 worth of the stock
Companies represented by Mr. Oliver
will also meet with small losses by reason
of damage to goods of other parties who
moved out while the fire was in progress.

A telegram to Tin-: Joi'TiNAI, from
Washington at ' o'clock last night is a
follows : v
"Simmons was Confirmed."
Brief as it is it tells a very satisfactory
piece of news. We are glad to know tht
matter is decided. Never did a man work
more faithfully or more energetically in a
campaign than did Mr. Simmons in the
last one. When the cainpai o oened
clouds of threatened defeat bung heavy
over the State by reason of defection to
Tliird party ranks, but election dsy
allowed the counsels of the enemy were
brought to naught, and the result was in
no small degree attributable to the watch
ful skill and generalship with which ho
as chairman of the State Democratic Ex
ecutive committee managed the campaign.
The office which has been Iwstowed upon
him is small enough recognition of his
faithful and successful serv ces.
Our 3aval Reserves.
The New Berne Naval Reserves is get
ting to be a fine organisation and deserves
special mention. .
The Naval Mili'.ia movement now ex
tends through every sea board State,
from Massachusetts to Texas. There
are also organizations on the lakes and
all of them receive liberal snpjort from
the States in whicli they are located.
, ,Our boys are now ifM-ogniz.ed by the
State authorities and sianrfon the same
basis in that respect as the other compa
nies of the State Guard; but so fur as the
County of Craven and City of New Berne
are concerned, no support whatever is
given. Wilmington and New Hanover
Co. we are informed, contribute some
$1,500 per annum and an armory to their
military organizations. All other Coun
ties and cities where companies are lo
cated assist, financially, in supporting
their organizations, but our company,
the only one within sixty miles, receives
The good conduct and efficiency of the
boys is all the more commendable under
sue u circumstances.
LIFE IS SWEET.
cA i.i;n in n n.
This world would be u dreary world
If there were none to love us.
And dull would lw the passing hours.
And perlumelesa tlK; sweet flowers.
Bnd dim the- stars above n.
I often think, when'cr I sit
Amid the twilight shadows,
WaUdiing the dying sun's decent
Adown the rosate firmament.
Vli ii-li seems to clasp the meadows.
How cheerless ami bow drear would be
The day's that hover o'er u,
If Love's .bright eye should shine no
If we should tread along life's shore
With uo bright hopes before us.
Ah, brntherj mortal life is sweet
While friends arc true and near us
While loving lips to ours are ressed,
Bestowing kisses heaven hath bl sscd,
To make us smile- to cheer us.
I And there are hearts worth living for,
! True ns the heaven above us.
i They till our souls with peace and mirth,
Thev brighten darkest days oftai'lb
And only live to love u.
Then env not, stoic, that tins l.fe
Is naught but pain and sadness
While round our pat li I .loom lo e's sweet
While friendship paints the passing hours
With her bright smile of gladness.
