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,

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

Reduced Expenses of tha Latter Will

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

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.

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

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

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

general turn in his grave.
Mr. Henry O. Havemeyer, of Xew

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

Ye Editors in Convention
The editors are at Morganton mis

time. They generally dj when n
home.
Next to the preachers they mana
get more good "vittals" and other
dimants, at their Associations ilia
other set out. They all need it. und
ot them deserve it
And its a real pleasure to see how
e onel
l at
;c to
th-
enjoy it. They are a way Horn home and
office cares, and notjwitbout honor -ae
in their own country.
The good people who feast them till
the ' flow of soul" reminds one of the
sparkling intellectual nectar of Sheridan
and Pitt, of Clay, Webster, Cahoun,
Prinriss, et cetera, know that n any of
them are cussed year in and year out
mostly bv dilinquents, for serving
their I
community and the country.
But with all their draw backs, they get
one week of square meals, and as much
happiness as can be put in that length of
time.

Prof. Edward Graham Dave

"Soine years after the close of the

be thought, could afford to dispense wait
such compensation for their services.
'"I served my country from patriotic
motives,' said this noble soldier, who h id
lost his health in British prison ships,
'and I hope that none of my deseendaitts
will ever claim pecuniary reward.'
"A little more of this spirit in our own
geue'ation would solve one of our finan
cial problems. It is very unlike that of a
recent patriot who in a moment of des
poudence at non-appreciation ok his
sacrifices exclaimed: 'If I ever love anoth

Irom the Bureiu of Pensions in which
ne h instructed by Commissioner Wm.
Lochren to notify pension agent Frederic
Douglass, of New Berne, that he has been
