Philadelphia, Not. 10. A .warrant
was issued, this morning, for' the arrest of
J . B. Reed, one of the alleged conspirators
in the Whitaker will case. An affidavit
charges Reed with larceny as bailee, and
states that, sometime ago, borrowed from
a gentleman in this city original letters
patent and deeds to nearly 1Q0,000 acres
of lands in Brunswick and Craven counties.
North Carolina, upon the representation
that he had a purchaser for the lands.
Reed destroyed the deeds, which had never
been recorded, and substituted the false
ones, in which , the names of a former
mayor of Philadelphia, John Binns, once
a well known alderman, and others were
named as principals and witnesses. These
deeds carrying with them the lands, were
first recorded in North Carolina, and then
sold tQ a party in Camdea. The charge
is, also, made that Reed, in conjunction
withi George N. Townsend, who is now
awaiting trial on a similar charge, have
put upon the market the forged deeds for
nearly 40,000 acres of land in West Vir
ginia, and that these deeds have been rec
orded in that State.

THE FOURTH DISTRICT.
i Raleigh Observer.
I It will be conceded by all, - we think,
that the faithful in this District have an
undoubted right to beproudorthe result
in the late election. The nominee of our
party has carried the District Uy over-
whelming odds against his leading oppo
nent and dj. ciear majority over all
opponents combined, greater than any
Democrat ever before received. This of
itself is sufficient cause for the proudest
congratulations ; but when we remember
that we had to fight not only the enemy in
our front, but an enemy in rear also, and
secret foes in the very midst of our own
ranks, it seems scarcely credible that vic
tory should have crowned our e Sorts.

' In view of the lessons of the recent elec
tion we think it safe to say that the three
following propositions are indisputable :
1. That a caucus of the ; Democratic
members will be held to select a Demo
cratic candidate for every office that has
to be filled bv the next Legislature.
. 2. That all the Democratic members will
go into the caucus forthat 5purposp-and
that all will support the decision 'of the
caucus by their ballots in the Legislature.
3. That no Democrat in caucus will vote
for any man as a Democratic nominee who
does not acknowledge the right of the
caucus to pass upon his claims.
Had these simple principles, constituting
as they do the very essenca of the Demo
cratic organization, been regarded "Waddell

HOW MRS. VANCE IMPRESSED A; GIFTED ED

lhe death of this excellent; lady is not
onlv a loss to her distinguished husband
but to the State also. We shall never
forget the impression she made on us at the
inauguration of our Chief Magistrate on
last January a year ago. Clad in a neat,
sober colored silk, standing in her private
apartments which yet became the reception
room for the most illustrious citizens of the
Commonwealth, supported on either hand
by accomplished lady friends,; who loved
her, and gave her their cordial sympathy,
and receiving the congratulations of North
Carolina s most gifted sons, she was truly
a woman to esteem, admire and cherish.
No glittering gewgaws about her person,
no simpering nasn ot mannerism or
fashionable affectation, nor; yet was
there any cold, repellant stateliness of offi
cial dignity. She looked like Cornelia
might hate looked when Scipio Africanus
came back triumphant over Carthage, or
when the Gracchi had won their first vic
tory in the politics of Rome. : Calm, self-
possessed, a lady born and bred, her brow
sharing the laurels of the campaign just
ended, her life wedded to the most gallant
knight of all that terrible onset of arms,
the very sweetness of a happy wife and
mother shone in every expression of her
face. We do not know, that others saw
her as we did. But to be introduced to
her and to hear her talk at such a time
and under such circumstances, caused a
halo of romance to be woven; around her

Rev. N. B. Cobb and J. T. Webb were
added to the Sunday school board. .
The committee appointed to take into
consideration the formation of a; ministers'
relief board, and suggest a plan of opera
tion, reported that the matter, under the
circumstances, was not a proper subject
for public discussion.
The following were appointed a commit
tee, in accordance with a resolution passed,
yesterday, to make a report on the subject
of the jdesecration of the Sabbath by rail
road companies : W. B. Clement, J. S.
Bridges. E. W. Tiraberlake, Lawson Knott
and L. C. Dunn.

preachers for the next session,! reported
To preach the introductory sermon, Rev.
R. H. Griffith ; alternate, Rev. F. II.
Jones. To preach the missionary sermon,
Rev. W. R Gwaltney; alternate, Rev
Prof. W. B. Royall.
The discussion of the report of the board
of missions was announced as the special
J order for the hour.
Rev, C. Durham referred to the fact that
the published reports of the mission work
did not show what the Baptists were doing.
Many of ihe associations worked through
their own boards, and he supposed that not
one-tenth of the funds paid in Tor missions
were shown by: the reports. He believed,
further, that the Baptists were not only
doing more than any other denomination,
but were doing more per member.
Rev. N. B. Cobb called attention to the
fact that there was another mistakes made,
in estimating the individual efforts of the
Church ; while there were, according to the
statistics of last year, over 150.000 mem
bers and 1,607 churches in the State, only
about 70,000 members, 720 churches and
360 ordained ministers belonged to this
convention. In estimating the contribu
tions, per capita, therefore, 70,000 members
should be the basis.

There are twenty-tbree Baptist churches

At the conclusion ot the address. Rev.
E. Dudson offered to be one of twenty to

evening was the Charlotte church, and
that the convention would go into a mass
meeting on the subject.
Rev. R. H. Griffith, who had been at
one time and for eleven years a pastor of
the church, first addressed the assembly,
giving a lull history or the church from
its organization up to the present time.
He told how, after preaching for several
years in the court house, to a mere handful
of people, with only two members and they
ladies, Rev. R. B. Jones had succeeded in
building a church at a 'cost of between
$3,000 and $4,000, then the handsomest
church edifice in the town. The Baptists
had suffered for years on account of the
distance of its house of worship from the
centre of the city. The members of the
church were willing to do their best, but
they couldu t do much. That they were
zealous and liberal was testified to by the
fact that they had spent $4,000 in the last
eleven years in church improvements.
Rev. J. S. Pnrefoy gave some reminis
cences ot the tarlv struggles, rle said he
had understood that the congregation
would give $3,000. He couldn't do much
but would guarantee 6,000 brick for the

Ned Wallace of Jesus Maria, Cal., kill
ed a cougar the other day that measured
eight feet in length. Mr. Wallace was out
hunting, and came across a couple of young
cougars, or panthers, isea snot one oi tne
cubs dead and wounded the other. Ihe
wounded one set up a crying and whining !
that was heard by its mother, and belore
Wallace could reload his rifle, he was star
tled by a scream so shrill and piercing that
the sound seemed to penetrate to the mar
row of his bones. Wallace is an experi
enced hunter, and he well understood the
significance ef that cry. He knew it came
from the female cougar, an animal which,
when aroused and enraged, has no superior
in strength, activity and ferocity. A crash
in the brush on the hillside above him, and
a repetition of the frightful scream that
sounded almost humane iu its expression
of demoniacal fury, warned Wallace of his
perilous situation, and he prepared to face
the danger. His rifle was empty. With
the utmost celerity he threw a handful of
powder into the barrel and shoved a bullet
down after it. As Wallace hurriedly fin
ished capping the weapon and drew his
knife, the cougar was within twenty feet of
him, preparing to spring. Quick as thought
Wallace levelled his rifle and fired, the
bullet striking the panther .in the breast
and inflicting a fatal wound. The cougar
leaped fully ten feet into the air, and fell
dead at Wallace's feet. The skins of the
congar and her cubs are on exhition in Je

measures eight feet in length.

may have elected Congressmen m ew
York aud Connecticut, but Renublican
Greenbackers were elected iu Pennsylvania,
while in the South the onlv Republicans
elected to Congress are Greenbackers, and
tne Greenbackers chosen in ermont and
Illinois are Republicans. Mr. Conklintr
may have teen indorsed bv tho irreatState
of New York because he was orthodox on
the currency question, but surely Mr.
Camerou, in Pennsylvania, whose inumph
is greater, was not indorsed for the same
reason, ict the ablest ltepubhcau jour
nals in the country are contending that the
result of tbe elections is, above all, a rebuke
to the inflationists. There are others a train
bat attribute, the Republican triumph to
the attitude of the South towards the
negroes and the consequent raising of the
bloody shirt at the North. Absurd I Tbe
relations between the races were never so
peaceful as they were in ihe late campaign.
Except in South Carolina there was no
real complaint of bull-dozing, aud it was
only here and there at wide iutervals that
in the face of such a state of affairs any
body in the North was brazen enough to
raise the bloody shirt.- In no campaign
since the rebellion was crushed has the
South played a part so subordinate as in
that which lias just closed. As to the
cypher dispatcher, about which the Tri
bune is crowing so lustly, the lC8t answer,
to the claim preferred in their behalf is
that in New York the only prominent
Democrats benefitted by the election were
Mr. Cooper, to whom the cipher used was
traced, and Mr. Tilden, whose fortunes the
exposure of these dispatches was supposed
most to affront. Thus we might go on;
every Republican thinks tliat his bobby
was the one upon which tbe party rode to
victory. Ihe truth 13 that each' of these

The smash-up of a dramatic company in
Ohio was caused as much by a peculiar
dissension as by bad business. The com
bination was run by George Fawcett Itowe,
an actor who "stars" iu small towns, and
among. the actresses were Mrs. Itowe and
Miss Clayton, both . pretty women, in
Springfield, O., as already mentioned in
this paper, Miss Clayton took a seat in the
audience and made fun of Mrs. llowe'
acting ; whereupon Mrs, Itowe left the
stage and returned to her hotel. The
company disbanded soon afterward, and
both actresses tell their trouble through
the Dramatic Neu-$. Mrs. Itowe says :
"My husband, whose dressing room at the
Opera House was next to iiiss'Clay ton's,
knocked at the door, and asked aloud,
'Have you any powder, my dear ?' 'Yes,
Dolly,' answered J, an J ai I entered bis
room to eive him the Dowder. I found Miss
Clayton there, and 'Mr. Row nsing her
powder. I became indignant and ordered J
my husband to discharge her from the com
pany at once, or I would leave." Miss
Clayton says : "Mrs. Kowe refused to let
Mr. Rowe use the same dressing room with
her, consequently he took the first vacant
room he could find, which nappeneS to be
the one next to mine. Mrs. Kowe refused
to lend him her , powder-pnff. ne then
asked me for mine. I handed it over the
door. Mrs. Rowe hearing him ask me,
became very indignant, 'and abased him
very roundly." - ' '
