Three Hand ed Buildings Darned and $3,000,000 Lost by the tJreat Fire, Panama, Juno 14. 2 o'clock this morninsr the flames were subdued, after having destroyed over 300 buildings in the most thickly-populated section of the city including the prefectture and Chinese quarters. The loss of property amounts to nearly 13,000,000. The insurance is esti mated at only about 200,000- One-third of the area of the city is devastated and 5.000 persons are rendered homeless. The firo burned nearly everv building on Lastablas, Juan once. L.a St. Lamas, Salsifued- es, and Esquandas streets. The city market was saved. Two persons were killed and thirty or forty were wounded severely during the fire. DR. MILBURS'S ADDRESS. The Life and Character of Richard B faherldan" A Delightful Discourse. Durham, May 13. For an honr and a half this af eruoon. Dr. W. H. Mil burn entertained a large audience in Trinity church with bis native wit and eleqaence. Dr. Yates, in introducing the speaker, tated that Dr. Mubarn had been chaplain of the House of Represen tatives and Senate off and on for fifty je:rs. Tue 8itj.tct of the address was The Life and Character England's Great Wit and Orator, Richard B. Sheridan." Before approaching hi subject. Dr. Milbnrn expressed great pleasure at being permitted once more to address a North Carol iu audience and told his bearers that for them to come out in each hot went her and at suoh a late hour showed that they were pioe knots and conld stand any thing. Dr. Milbnrn. in a most fascinat ing manner, told the story of the career of Richard Sheridan as a man of literature and as a member of the English House of Commons. The address sparkled with wit and humor, gradually reaching the climax of eloquence in the end. Dr. Milburn is a fine delineator of character, making every detail in tensely interest ng. His address was listened to with great interest. SLOVER, NEW BEKNE, N- C. GUARANTEED. miC3m DiifCMDiiDQ p. nn FIRE DE Reduced Expenses of tha Latter Will Nearly Pay the Rentals for tha Former. At a reccssmectiog held Wednesday and at the preceding regular meeting held a little previously, the city council U k iwtiun on matters relative to tlie Fire Department which will reduce the : pxpense of the Department nbout $8,000 ,,i t year. This they nre enabled to do on account of the service rendered by the water wor';?. The amount saved, it will l)e noticed, will lack only $700 of paying the water works rentals, and it is fully lielievcd by those familiar with the work ings of the department that if the little extra expenses which occasionally bad to lie met were counted, that the reduction in expenses would entirely offeet the rentals. Ilerealter, when a tire alarm is sound ed no engine will go out unless a general alarm is given and then only one will go, and the engineers instead of being on a salary, will be paid only lor the time they are actually at work. The New B-rne engine house will be dispensed with and the engine taken around to c ity headquarter?. It is ex pected to plac e the -hose carriage in some other part of the city to more widely dis tribute the protection. There will algo be three less hsrscs to keep, and other things work in to count up on the saving. POTATOES PATISitt WFLL. One Hundred Dolars Per Acre and Another Crop Now Growing Good Enough. Wh n it was realized that the com. bined influence of the cold snap and subsequent drouth had cut off the potato crop one-half, we reminded our readers of similar experiences which the truckers have passed through in former years without their being a resultant money If to the growers. The marketing of the potatoes is now well ndvanced and good reports of the total results are beginning to be heard We copy one we have just received from Stonewall : '"Digging Irish potatoes is all the go and the larmers are getting good prices. Mr. A. B. Swindell, a tenant on Mr. C. 11. Fowler's Dozier farm, planted 15 acres and has realized about $1,500. Aft ir payins for guano, barrels and dig- pin ' he will net a neat little sum of $1,000. What will beat this? And this was only about half a crop. The same land is now in corn and will produce 8 to 10 bushels per acre. The general corn crop is very nice; cotton is small but looking strong nd healthy." We expect to hear of other fine reports like the above as the potato shipping season gels toward its close. Fr.nn The Progressive Age we clip the following notes on crops at Aurora: Mr. C. S. Dixon has dug as much as seventy-live barrels of Irish potatoes per acre. Mr. C. S. Dixon has dug nine hundred barrels of Irish potatoes from sixteen acres of land. Mr. J. B. Bonner had shipped Friday evening from his lands in the suburbs of Aurora, nine hundred und ninety-niue barrels of Irish potatoes. The corn crop of our section hid fair now to be above an average. Just rain enough every week now. When the Circus Comes to Town.

HAPPENINGS Of THE DAY, The sugar production of Louisiana has increased 86 per cent during the last five years. France is said to be at the height of her power so far as her war strength is concerned. Justice White recently appointed to the supreme bench, was a judge in Louisiana at the age of 28. No man will ever amount to much who lrbors under the impression that some body else is always in his way. It is difficult to make a heu-pecked husband or an unsuccessful lover believe that women are ciushed down and kept out of their rights. The Republicans of Texas met at Fort Worth on the 12th, and decided to put a lull State t icket in tlie nekl. The U. 8. war ship Mohican, of the Bering Sea patrol squadron, has captured two sealing vessels, both from Seattle. Another opponent has entered tlie field for Congress in Breckinridge's district, Maj Henry Clay McDowell, who lives on the Henry Clas estate at Ashland, Ky. There is trouble in Morocco. The old Sultan is dead, and his youngest son be ing: elevated to the throne, will have to fight with his uncle to keep it. The Trustees of Trinity college, Dur ham, have adjourned without electing a successor to Rev. Dr. J. F. Crowell, President, whose resignation goes into effect July 15th. The latest from the seat of government is that the Democratic members of Con gress will-fight among themselves over the sugar tariff in the Wilson Bill, and that its fate in that body is probably sealed. Massachusetts Republicans deny em phatically Mr. Havemeyer's statement to the Senate committee that the sugar com pany bad contributed to their campaign lund in that State. The papers of the State just now, as a general thing, are saying very little about Slate politics. It is almost impossible to talk intelligently on this subject, and then too it may not be policy. More than one of our Sauthern colleges have gotten on the road to progress by admitting women to an equal show in these institutions. It is tune this wag done in all colleges, and it would be were not the men afraid to come into intellec tual contest with the women. J. B. Crawley, who -killed Richard Harris at Ruth 1889, has jnst been tried in Washington. A verdict of manslaugh ter was me result ana the sentence is six years in the penitentiary. The Baltimore Sun Is authority for the statement that the Cape Fear and radkin Valley Kailraod is to be extended to South port. President Hobsrood of the Oxford Baptist Female college, favors the co-edu- ca.ion ot the Sexes, and 13 endeavoring to introduce it at Vake Forest college. Why not In the seventh district it is said Hon John S. Henderson will have as his com petitor for Congress, Hon. Zeb Vance Walser, republican. Negro tramps are now numerous, and it is to the credit of colored men that he didn't join the Coxey army, either as a general or high private. A red-skinned fraud is beimr exhibited at the Antwerp exhibition as "Sitting Bull. Ihe genuine old chief, it will be remembered, went to the happy hunting grounds many moons since. The Kansas Republicans are in State convention at Topeka. They rejected the Woman Suffrage plank in their platform. though strongly advocated in speeches by Susan B. Anthony, Rev. Anna Shaw and the women orators. Durliam is having a blue time this week. It is bedecked in the Trinity's ririrrht KI110 pfilnra om-l K, rr t-1 c? wIia mill be left behind next week when the boys are gone, will still wear their blue dresses in perfect accord with the "fitness" of things. A band of Coxeyites seized a train at Fairfield Illinois on the 13th and the United States Judge has ordered the TJ. S. Marshals to re-capture it The Coxey ite resembles Banquo's ghost in that he will not down. The Senate is doing nothing on the tariff bill they say it is too hot to work The impression is their themometer will register a few degrees higher this fall, and they will be working like Turks for re election. The North Carolina, and other South ern States white boys at Trinity college. JJurham, let a western Indian walk away with them for the declaimer's honor in the Sophomore Clas3. He took their oritori- cal scalps, and left their heads sore, and worst of all his name is Maytubby. Congress, they sav, promises to partial ly relieve the party and the country by an adjournment in August. They have so far hung, like a mill stone, around tlie neck of both, and a grateful people will celebrate the day when they can get rid of this useless expense. Later news than we had yesterday says the Women Suffragist carried their point before the Kansas Populist convention at Topeka. The male Populist will have a hard time of it now, because "Calico is monstrous uncertain." The Richmond, Va. Howitzers, one of the oldest military companies in the oountry, have done themselves credit by the adoption of resolutions looking to the erection of a monuTient to the women of the South those to whom the credit of almost every monument in the land be longs. Hon. Chauncy M. Depew delivered the oration before the joint Literary Socielies of the University ot Virginia on the 12th inst. Vice President Adlai Stevenson also spoke. The Faculty decided adverse ly the proposal toa admit women to the Academic Uepartments. Mrs. Z. B. Vance is out in a card in which she declares the statement of Mr. C. X. Vance in reference to the removal of his father's remains as "simply mali cious falsehoods or the outgivings of a ilisordered brain.'' This is most deplora ble, and brings sorrow to every North Carolinian. 'Tis enough to make the general turn in his grave. Mr. Henry O. Havemeyer, of Xew York, President of the American Sugar R fining Co., when being examined before the Senate Committee, on the 13th inst. denied that he had ever seen President Cleveland. In consequence of such testi mony s this, J. S. Shiver, correspondent of ths Mail and Express; and J. E. Ed wards, correspondent of the Philadelphia Express, are lo be indicted by a U. S. grand jury tor the news they sent out aboutjthe sugar frauds. The Masons will celebrate St. John's day at Oxford, N. C, on the 22nd of this month. The Grand Lodge meets there at that time. The Oxford Orphan Asylum is situated at that place, and is the property of the Masons of North Carolina. This ought to be the rallying ground for Masonry in the Stale. They ought to be fully acquainted with their property see how it is being conducted and what it is doing. The Orphan Asy lum is one of the greatest factors in the State to do good in the best way, to those who without its beneficent influence, would bring dishonor instead of credit. A MERITED TRIBUTE. Ker. H. W Battle Classed by the Atlan ta Journal as a Peer in Culture and Eloqnence of Ueorgias Most Gifted Song. The Atlanta Journal in referring to the Commencement Exercises at Shorter College, Rome, Ga., of which Rev. A. J. Battle, D. D- LL. D , is President says: Th baccalaureate aldress bv Dr. Henry W. Battle, of Petersburg. Va., was a masterly discourse. Replete with elo quence, thought and learning 'twas no wonder that the audience punctuated it with frequent and lapturotis applause. lie had in it fire, the fire ot enthusiasm magnetism of the man who can sway his hearers, the dramatic force which im pels attention and brings spontaneous admiration, and added to all these was the calm, cool, conclusions brought to gether by the philosopher, the thinker, the student and the knowledge reaped by one who loves Homer, Horace, and who wanders with untrammelled will through all the realms from Chaucer anJ Browning to the wonderful histories of Babylonish and Biblical lore. A patriot and a southerner, he paid a glowing tribute to iieory txradv. He said that Grady with his matchless love had embraced all sections, that the love which he had taught us we had followed and it had led ns on to God." Speaking of Rome, he called it a beau tiful gem set in an emerald ring," declar ing that nature and the Creator had been so kind to us that we perforce should be better than other cities less favored. Dr. Battle was a college mate of Hon John Temple Graves, of Atlanta, and to mm also he paid a worthy compliment, said Georgia should be proud of Grady and Graves, and should delight to honor also "the immortal Sydney Lanier, the ermine of whose robe was pe'er touched with an impure stain." Dr. Henry Battle should belong to Georgia, as he holds an equal rank in culture and eloquence with Georgia's most gifted sons. No more can be said. All New Bernians who have sat enrap tured under the thrilling eloquence of Dr, Battle, while pastor of the Baptist church of this city, will realize how worthily the above high complement frome one of the Soutb's leading journals is l.estowed. Rev. H. A. Battle, the president of the college, is an uncle of the Revernd gen tleman who delivered the address, a brother of our equally eloquent towns man, his father, Gen. C. A. Battle. A New Bern Wedding in the Last Century. The following account of a wedding in New Bern a hundred years ago, with its description of quaint costumes and observances, and the spirit which seemed to characterize the prolonged festivities, will doubtless interest our readers the younger membeis especially. We ven ture the statement that, if a wedding ceremony of to-day were had to the ac companiment ol the fire of artillery, the bride and bridesmaids would be sadly demoralized, and might even beat a rapid retreat. The participants in the merry making have long since passed away. Mrs. Att more was the grandmother of Dr. Geo. Attmore of Pamlico; the bride and groom, Air. and Mrs. earthy, were the parents ot the late Mrs. Peter (Just's; Miss' Batchelor was afterwards Mrs. Ed ward Giaham, wife ot "Counsellor'' Graham, who was the "Geutleman from New York,'' then recently settled in New Bern; Mr. Nash was the Hon. Frederick Nasb, afterwards Chief Justice of the State; "Parson" Cutting was the Rev. Leonard Cutting, D. D., Rector of Christ Church. The house in which the wed ding was celebrated, stood near the foot of Pollock street, and was destroyed in the great fire of 1842. It was a hand some residence, with spacious grounds, and the then rarity of a private fish pond. "Copy ot a letter written by Miss Amaryllis Sitgreaves of New Bern, to her sister, Mrs. Attmore, thea in Philadel phia, giving a description ol the wedding of Miss Sarah Haslen, which occurred on Tuesday, December 8th, 1790 or 1791." ''A large company the bride was dressed in white lustring, the habit bound down the sides with ribbon, the coat flounced with gauze, a small white chip bat. lined with white, a larye bow before. Miss Haslen and Miss Batchelor brides maids, both in white lustring and elegant head-dresses, Ned Kean and Dr. Cutting groomsmen. Old Parson Cutting mar ried them. Ihe handsomest wedding has been in New Bern since I can remember. Mamma, Sister, Brother and I were all there. The vessel stood at the end of the house, illuminated with a great many candles, and looked very handsome. When the two tea-tables were drawn Irom the side of the room the guns fired; when the bride was led down stairs to be married the guns began to fire again and continued until they were married. Then we had tea, then danced until supper, then marched up stairs two and two, the drummer and fifer playing at the door; very elegant set suDper: two large square cakes, one at the head, the other at the toot, li.ur pounds each. Mrs. Haslen at the head of the table, Parson Cutting at the toot, Mrs. Bride at the right hand ot her Mamma, Mr. Carthy (the groom) at the left Our Mamma at the right hand ot the Bride the old lady and Bride insisted on it Mrs Cutting at the left of Mr. Cartny. "As the Bride did not choose to walk minuet, Sister and Mrs. Haslen did. Mrs. Carthy and Dr. Cutting danced to gether, Mr. Carthy, the groom, and Miss Batchelor danced together, Mr. Kean and Miss Phoebe together. Tuesday, Wed nesday and Thursday they danced at the Old Lady's, Friday at Mr. Tom Haslen 's I did not go Wednesday nor Thursday, but Friday they sent Mr. Nash and a carriage for me, so I went and passed the evening quite agreeably. Miss Haslen and Miss Batchelor sang, Mr Hasten played on the flute until tea, then we danced. I danced with Mr. Graham that night, Tuesday night with Mr. Nash. This Mr. Graham is a gentleman Irom New York; he danced so much like our dear brother Josey, and the Bride so like you that it made Mamma leel quite low spirited. "The gentlemen had a relish on board the vessel Saturday; guns were fired all that day, our brother Josey danced better at the wedding than any one there except Mr. Grahacu and Mr. Haslen. He danced with the bride at Mr. liaslen's and they cut a most noble figure. I had the honor of dancing with Mr. Howe at the wedding, Miss Sally Vail's nephtw. I dined at my brother's wiih Mr. and Mrs. Carthy, Mrs. Haslen, MUs Haslen. Miss Batchelor, Mr. Graham and M. Nash. The two young ladies sang. The Bride was dressed in her second day's suit, the color abeaiiful pink, her wedding hat. The Old Lady a black satm habit and coat; Miss Haslen a white habit aud blue coat: Miss Batchelor a green Peisian habit ana coat; Sister a brown satin; I in my flowered muslin ard pink coat. "The Bride dined at her brother's first, then at Mr. Witherspoon's, then at Col. Williams. O my dear, how we all wished you to be at this wedding." As will be noticed elsewhere in this issue, Mr. C. N. Vance has gotten an in junction against his father' widow and the Cemetary committee to prevent an other removal of the Senator's remains. Jf. C.

The State Superintendent of Public In- structson, Hon. John C. Scarborough, has selected Tuesday, June 26th, as the date for a general meeting of all Cotntv Super intendents in the State at Murclicad ( it v. during the session of the Teach c i's A--,n -bly. This will be a most important meeting and conference in the interest of the public schools of the State, and it is hoped that every county Superintendent will be present if possible. All proposed changes in the school law- will be fully discussed and amendments thereupon will be prepared for tie con sideration of the General Assembly, in Raleigh, this winter. A large number of County Superintendents have signiiied their intention to be present at th- meet ing, and it is likely to be one of ihe ino-t. useful and valuable conferences ot'scho ! officers ever held in the State.
