A few dajs Ago thore .. ri. ru
mors t'aat Senator Ransom whh
complicated in sugar speculations.
It was said, "Ransom is up to his
ears in it." The facts are now bo
fore the pablio and it appears that 1
George Runotn, a son ot the Sena-1
tor, touched sur very lightly.
and that is all there is in it.
The fact that George Utnsom is
the son of a Sen jtor d it-i not pre
elude him from the pri il -ge of en
teriug into basiudaa epi-julatious,
and what he has done wan perfect
ly legitimate. Of eotKHo he would
not havj done it 'f he had known
that it would embarrass his fat her,
but such a thing was not dreamed
If there is anything more char
acteristic of Mritt. W. Ransom
than another it is the ciro with
which he guards his honor. The
slightest lmpnt tion rests like a
mountain weight upon him, and he
cannot oleep until it is removed.
He is no les jealous ct' the honor
ob the state he represents, and be
would part with life itself sooner
than put a stain on its proud es
cutcheon. While the whole hie of the Sen
ator is an illustration of the high
est chevalry, there are meu angen
erous enoagh to say that '-Old Matt
knew what Geo.ge was doing:" but
even a brave and magnanimous
political enemy muse blush to en
tertain such a thought.
True men m3v d ;Ter with Sena
tor Ransom on questions of nat
ional policy, but they cannot help
admiring his granitehke integrity,
his high courage, his brilliaut ac
complishments and superb bear
ing. There are those who sometimes
speak lightly ol Senator Hansom s
"blandishments." It would be
well for them to know that, while
office is honorable, no title is so
high as that of Gentleman.
The Meeting1 Id the Interest of tlie

Baltimore, June 16. Im an
interview regarding the call issued
through the Manufacturers' Record
by New York capitalists for a
meeting of people interested in the
Sooth, Efchard II. Edmonds, editor
of the Manufacturers' B3cord
states: "The invitation fs extended
in a general way to everybody in
terested in the prosperity and pro
gress of the South. No special in-
vitatioaa. are being issued; it is
simply an open call to all who are
sufficiently interested in the ad
vancement of the South to attend
a meeting in New York Thursday
next te discuss the best means of
advancing the prosperity of the
entire South. Judging by the tele
grams and letters received from the
foremost business men of the South,
the attendance from that section
will be as conspicuous for the busi
ness and financial standing ot the
Southern men who attend the meet
ing as Is the list of New York men
who have signed the call. In all
probability there wiM be the most
remarkable gathering of leaders in
business interests that has ever
been seen in this eonntry. North
ern men representing hundreds of
millions of dollars invested in the
Soath and the active business men
of this Bection will, tor the first
time in the history of tte country,
come together to discuss how best
to bring about a full utilization of
the uneqnaled resources of the
South and how to make known to

as to the homeseeker. The occa

At the beginning of the siege.
June 20;h, the report of M irtnfs
Brigade, occupying Colquitt's sal
ient, showed L'.UOu men lor duty.
In September when they were re
lieved, the total force was 700,
nothiug but living skeletons. Upon
this line, held alternately three
days by Martin and three by Col
quitt, ( Martin, duriug the siege,
was succeeded in the command by
Kirkland), the enemy had iu and
near Fort Steadman 1 s mortars and
several batteries of guns.
Tho works were so close, that no
man could for two minutes put his
head above the breaat-v orka and
live. Occupying a sharp salient, the
woik was entilided on both Hanks
by direct fire, and the mortar shells
came incessaitiy down from above.
The work was a succession ol trav
erses, between which the men were
huddled, with some bomb-proofs
dug in the ground for the reser
ves. Every man was detailed every
night, either on gnai d-d a-y, or to
labor with pick and n ide. rep tiring

The Secret ol (. ,o.I (, , eminent
Uii'voi s ity
Tlie special committee appoiu'ed
by Gov. Ctir to inve.'tigate tne
condition aud government of the
L'fiiveiHity made their report at.
the recent Commencement. The
committee was composed of llev. J
L. Stewart, of Cliuton, chairman,
D. G. Worth, Eq; of V'ilmington,
Lieut. Gov. li. A. Daughton,
Judge W. T. Fairclotn and li. T.
Gray, Esq.,ol lialeigh. They 833:
"After careful enquiry and in -vestigation
the committee con
fidently oelieve that at no period in
the history ol the University has
the general deportment of the
students been better or their hab
its ol study more commendable. In
this connection it gives the com
mittee great pleasure to say that
drunkennese has almost entirely
disappeared. They were assured by
a number of persons of extensive
observation that they had not seen
a case of it for years. It seems to
the committee that these good re
sults come chiefly from three
1 . The Character of tho L'niver
-. The influence, direct or indi
rect of inter collegiate games.
3. The influence of the Young
Men's Christian Association.
The governm ent of the Univer
sity seeks to influence the student
to govern himself by appealing to
his seDse of right aud to his ambi
tion lor a fair name, discarding
espion age in ail its phases. Such
influences must tend to-the devel
opment of a high type of character;
and, in the judgment of the com
mittee, have resulted in the good
order now prevalent.
In regard toth effect of the inter
collegiate games upon the habits
of study and order, some of the
committee nao. enter a neu grave
conbts as to whether sach ell'ect
was wholesome. Perhaps this view
extensively prevails in the State.
Upon mature reflection and an in
vestigation as extensive as could
under the c rcumstances bo given
(o the matter, the committee now
fully endorse the "wisdom of the
introduction and encouragement of
In regard to the linancinl man
agement the committee say: "The
books of the Bursar have been
faithfully and accurately kept. No
evidence of extravagance or mis
management appears.'' w Ob
