There is no danger of his vetoing the bill, though he would probably like to eb so if the business condition of the country would admit of his doing so. It is evi dent however, that be docs not aut the bill to go to the .archives of the State- De partment with his signature attached. It would be somewhat of a humiliation for him to approve the measure -.. ;.:ch be has already so roumliy denounced, and by withholding bis signature he- can maintain his attitude of disapproval.

The Rac f r Senator. The is-m s involv ed in the coming elec tion in this State will lie bitterly contested and the Democratic party has need of its best men if victory is to be achieved. The complexion ol the next Senate ofibe United States is a matter of grave concern for it was in that branch of Congress I that the cause of Democracy has just :l j,00i ,ieili of- ,n0nev lately in rnacadem gone down in gloom. Two of our most j jzijr the roads, and "to protect them have prominent citizens and statesmen seem to ; liave entered the arena and stripped for the contest oetore tne suite uas neen saved. Would it not be well to bear in mind that they are not the only men in the Stjito woithy to wear the Senatorial toga? In the event that neither of these listinguished citizens can be elected the question arises, who would most fitly represent the dignity and integrity of this grand old State V There is a typical North Carolinian modest, learned, studious, upright, here in his domestic life, tried and found faith ful in public life, the Hon. II. G. Connor, of Wilson, whose name would inspire confidence, and whose election to the U. S. Senate would insure his active efforts to procure legislation in the interest of :he people. The Old North State is to be congratulated that she has such men who do not seek public positions but whose patriotism make them ready at all times to serve the State. i iKMllf'HAT. Aged and Youthful Convicts. A special from Raleigh to the Wil mington Messenger says that twelve con victs were brought to the penitentiary on the 22J. Five came from Moore county. One of these was 75 years old, one was aged only 11 years and auother 13 years. The latter two are to serve five and three and a half years respectively for man slaughter, having killed a boy of 12 veal's. No, ice of Nominations.

The Charlotte Observer says Mr. Jabez Myers, who was recently shot there, has expressed a desire to be taken to a New York hospital, and it is more than likely that he will leave in n few day. Several friends will accompany hi id. James Lin.lsey, the pugilist who killed his opponent in a prize right in Nebraska, and Sandy Gri.-wold the sporting editor and referee have both been bound over under heavy b nds charged with murder. Lindsey's second says that Linusey in tended to kill Robbins if he could not whip him. and that Griswold understood the scheme perfectly. This would make it deliberate murder. The feeling against the two men is very bitter. The Raleigh News-Observer ( bronicle says: It looks like Tom Settle s luck has changed. Rui'us Amis, of Granville, charges that the convention that Domina ted Settle was packed. Amis will be an independent Republican candidate on a free silver platform. Settle.- record is not acceptable to tbe free silver RepubJ licans, and Amis is going to make the most of it.

EL LO(iY OK NORTH CAROLINA. Remarks of Prof. Edward G Daves at. the Dinner of the Cincinnati Society in Boston blurtly Before Ilia Death. Mr. President: Yuu remember the familiar Latin proverb: 'Xvt f. cik- tii ,-trlfii,iiit tiilire Corinthum'' which may be freelv translated: -'It is not everv one wlio ho is luckv enough to visit tlie.c()mmis.iuli(., i Carolina, in Hfi:." " I, le outsiile quentlv ucver. am one of the fortunate Philistines privileged not luf're to sec the glories ot the modern Corinth, aiui to lint my le-s under her r hospitable mahogany. it is ueligiuuu ior n oouiiiem men to be here on occasions like this, when evervthiii'' is redolent of patriotic associa- ' tions, and we call to mind the enthusiasm I with which the news of Lexington was recoived at Baltimore, and the fact that Marvlanders were the first Southern J 10 -i0'"1 Washington at Cam- bridge.

I do not say ex tinct, for it still has a leal existence, as these was no formal vote of dissolution or distribution of its funds. Meetings sim- ply ceased to !e held, on account of the impossibility of bringing men together who were scattered widely over a purely agricultural State, very great in extent, without any metropolitan centre, and then with very impel feet means of com munication. Allow me to sa.v a word about North Carolina. presumably a fresh tonic here, i the modest, conservative old State, lacking perhaps in enterprise, lacking in expended on this account are paid for sell'-asseition. Lut always prompt at the from the appropriations made for the call of duty, and shrinking from no sacri- ! several buildings, Ctbus not causing any (ice when honor is at Stake. Trie "Tar-' additional appropriation, i the wisdom of heels" are a people singularly unpreten- I such legislation would seem to be un tious an 1 unostentatious; hardy, p itient J questionable. 1 have Irom time to time under suffering, oliedient to law divine I urgid that such action should be taken, and liumati; yet as ready to resist tyranny j but hitherto in vain. 1 might state in as loyally submissive to just authority; a this connection that had i been authorized nice of brave honest men, and pure ten-i to expend twenty-live per cent, or even der women, unsurpassed in tbe world for sterling qualities. From the time when North Carolina sounded the key-note of independence for the other colonies, to the days of our civil war, when with a population of but 600,000 she put into the field 120,000 soldiers, her military record has been unsullied, while the wis dom of her political conduct has been such tint your historian Bancroft says "il there be any who doubt man's capacity for se'f-governmcnt. let them study the history of North Carolina." Her annals are little read, yet within her b"i"ders hive happened events of su pieme interest in the history of our coun try and of our race. On Roanoke Island are the first footprints of the English peo ple on this continent, and there is the real cradle of Anglo-American life. Virginia Dare, born to one of Sir Walter Raleigh's colonists in lo8T, is the lirst natiye Anglo-i American, and the b iptisai in the same year of the friendly Indian chief, Mantoc, ! is the first Christian sacrament performed within the limit- c-f the Thirteen Colo-' Tl.a Vm-11. r'-.rolinn IJotrnl-.i rors ntTnrril ' the first armed resistance to British au thority, and at the battle of Alamance in 1771 was shed the first blood in the strug gle for liberty. At Charlotte in Mecklen burg county, on May 20, 1775, was made the first Declaration of Independence, ami when hostilities had fairly begun, North Carolina was the lirst olony to vote ex plicitly for absolute separation from the mother country on April 12. 177G. There is an interesting link of connec tion Letween the Mecklenburg Declara tion and the affair at Lexington, news of which reached Charlotte on May 19, A county convention was in session, which bad been called to consider the recent de claration in Parliament that the colonies w re in a state of actual rebellion. The tidings from Massachusetts stirred the patriots to immediate action; Ephriam Brevard (should we forget his name':) was appointed to draw up resolutions, and tbe next morning he reported his memorable charter of freedom. May I venture to read to you part of that Mecklenburg Declaration, bearing in mind the fact that it antedates by more than a year the trreat event which we celebrate today. It is brief, and some of its phrases are noteworthy. 1. "Resolved. That whosoever directly or indYictly abets, or in any way, form or manner, coumenances the unchartered and dangerous invasion of oui rights, as claimed by Great Britain, is an enemy to the country, to America, and to the in herent and inalienable rights of man. 2. Resolved, That we do hereby de clare ourselves a free and independent people, are, and of right ought lo be a sovereign and self-governing as8ociatipn, under the control of no power, other than that of our God and the general gov ernment of the Congress, to the mainten ance of which independence wp solemnly pledge to each other our mutual or opera tion, our lives our fortunes and our most sacred honour. 3. Resolved, That as we acknowledge the existence and control ol no law or legal officer, civil or military, within this country, we do hereby ordain and adopt as a rule of life, all, each and every one of our former laws, wherein nevertheless the crow n of Great Britain never can he con sidered as holding rights, privileges or authorities thetein.'' From the spirit of these resolutions the Province never wavered, and this early manifestation of patriotic enthu siasm never knew dimunition. Tbe blood of her sons reddened almost every battle fiehl from the Hudson river to the Savan nah: from Stony Point in ibe North, where my grandfather was severely wounded as a volunteer in the "torlorn hope." to the Southern limits of Georgia, at Moore's Creek, Charleston, Brandy wine, Germantown. Monmouth. Camden, King's Mountain, Cowpens. Guilford, llobkirk'.i Ifill, Eutay Springs, - Ikt heroes did splendid service, and of this last battle Gen. Greene repotted "the North Carolina b bjadc behaved nobly, and 1 am a', a loss which most to admire, the gallantry of the oflieers or tbe good conduct of their men." For the numbers engaged fe.v battles have been bloodier than Eutaw, and vic tory was wo;; at a terrible sacritiie: of Greene's small group of officers very many were wounded and twenty-one lay dead u the field. But the success was peiinianent, and the three Southernmost Provinces were freed from the presence ' Ol I lie eneiliv. xiie genius m iiieene, uie . - . r ii'. .. ... ..f ... .1.. i valor and skill of his officers, and the ,'sphiidid Conduct of the Southern tf-oops had b'MUglit the ;n o a happy close and won independence tor America. All Coruwallis' efforts were paralyzed, the Britinh power in tho colon ji yas uturly broken, and a month latei : the surrender at Ycrktowll formed the hi.-t scale in the suiigumary drama. But I must no longer tax your patience at this late hour and on this warm afier- ! noon, benefit I will conclude bv asking the m vonr aid and iivtfnpnee in mv ft'ort to ro-storo North Cai'obna to her V ace in the Cincinnati, and I oner you a coupled with the heipe that her galaxy may soon again bp resplendent with ail the thirteen stars.

The meaibers ot tbe New Rerii- Naval Reserves came back last night highly elated over their trip, and nil in the best nf spirits except Lieut. D. V. Kobeits who was somewhat ill. All the young men report the biggest kind of a time and say they would not have missed it foj anything. In addition to the pleasure they have had, the Reserves have the lienefit of the genuine exoerienee of life on board a ' 'le.-hip and though none of them allud- ed ii it they bring with them the proud consciousness nf duty well pert'onm d. -Vs tbe reports have shown they took hold of every portion of the work early or late. ,iasy or hard, in good spirit wlikh is the onlv proper way for a military man to do. The State has good i cause to be proud of her Reserve, and every encouragement .should be given ; them not only by the State and the gen eral government, but by the cities and counties in which thny are located to ever maintain a good organization and go for ward to even higher perfection. The Reserves Praised. Lieut. F. Winslow wdio stayed over a day longer at Wilmington than the other reserves returned home last night, lie pronounces the cruise a most successful and enjoyable affair ami ho is highly pleased with the warm prais - be-lowed upon th; Reserves, both by the oflieers of the Montgomery and by Lt. Tyler id the United S'atc Navy, the inspecting officer. We (juote from the Star the opinion of the latter officer: "Lieut. Tyler, U. S. N., who was s nt by the Government with the Xavnl Bat talion on their ten day cruise, was ap proached yesterday hy a Star reporter in regard to the show made by the North Carolina Naval Reserves, and he said it was "number one.'' lie als i slatedth.it nothing said in favor of the boys could do them justice, in his opinion. He was proud of the companies and they will hear from lum later. He reports having a most excellent time and will remain here a lew days." Lieut. Tyler will come up to-lay to leave by the steamer Ncuse this after noon. To Re-Surface The Macadamized Road.

We give in auother column mention by our Washington correspondent ol a meet ing about to take place in that city hav ing for its subject Southern development. The Southern Exchange Association another organization, the general offices of which are in New York city, and which numbers among its members such ir.cn as Aoiam S. Hewitt and Chaunccy M. Depew, ot New York. Hamilton Disston of Philadelphia, Julian S Carr, of North Carolina, Clifton B. Breckenridge, of Arkansas, &e., has is sued a disparaging letter in reference to this new movement. . It spiaksof the one who called the meeting aj "A Mr. William Rogers'' and says he "registers in New York from Washington and in Washington stales that he is from New York. It says Mr. Rogers obtaiucd a meeting of tbe Board of trade in Washington and upon his plea, that the southerners earn estly desired the co-operation of the board of Tiade, the Board offered a room and appointed a committee of reception. The action of the board ol the representation he made is spoken of as proper. It says moreover, that the railroads having issued half-faie rates for the con vention of the Knights of Pythias, which convenes in Washington, Mr. Rogers takes advantage of it to announce that laihoa Is will issue tickets at half nvles to attend bis convention. The letter signed by the President, Hugh R. Gardner concludes by saying: T deem it proper to advise you'to gu ird your people from Ibis and other at tempts which will frequently be made to take ad vantage of the work which this Associa tion has already done, by people who have selfish interests to serve. The citi zens of Washington will always do their best, and take a conspicuous part in any work which is done, for the good of the South, and of the whole country; bin they nor the Southern people will p, rmit themselves to be iiiiposj-d upon by the machinations o) disappointed schemers and pos'tion hunters." Wo give this that people may be on their guard. Advantage should be taken of overy legitimate opening for the ad vertising or the industrial development of the South, but, at the same time caution should be exeriiise 1 that simmers do not, get in any work tor personal ends wluch lead people on by expectations tlmt could i not be realised in which, while it might i enrich the promoters would in the react I ion injure the sections in which they oper, j ated. And even hore lhe.se organ,:, uions lor '.southern Development'' is composed of the lest of men, each section should ca:e ; fully guar.) ag iiu-t permitting itself to be j made the subject of a 'boom."
