Mr. Cicero Green called to see us Mon
day, and in a conversation about
farming he spoke of improving cotton
seed.- Several years ago he prpcufed
the Peeler cotton,which always brought
more in the market than any other x and:
instead of deteriorating he improved it
every year by carefully . selecting the
planting seed j but the loss ; of his ; gin
house by fire caused hint to lose the
seed. - He also procured the Cheatham
coun whicn was noted for having
many locks to tlie ."boll. ' This - he' im
proved until he got a boll with 18 goad
locks. Mr. Green is of opinion that an
early variety of cotton might be pro

As Others See Ua,
We see from a letter published in the
Ncjb Sout h by J. Skinner of Bowlir
Green, Ohio dated Aug. 6, 1832, some
thing that is of vast importance to the
people of North Carolina in regard to
immigration. He has lately completed
a tour through the counties of the Wes
tern portion oi tins state of which he is
writing a series of letters for the Senti
net published in Ohio regarding the ad
vantages to be derived in the mining,
cereal, vegetable and fruit business,
and that considerable inquiries had al
ready been made. He thinks the joint
ure of North Carolina with the three
States, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan in
their Exposition of Sept. 4th lasting two
weeks, would result in much good as a
large advertisement in the display of
her products and that he will use his
greatest influence in the undertaking.
Look at the State of Kansas a few
years back as it stood then, and to see
now that it ranks among the first of the
union, is proof that her earnest zeaL in
pushing forward the display of her pro
ducts has-awakened immigration, con
sequently prosperity follows.

The Governor had 'a large crowd to
greet him at Stanly Hall on Monday
night, and after, being introduced in a
lew appropriate remarks, by H. K. Bry
an, Esq:, arose and began his sneech.
He '- felt complemented . at meeting so
many of his fellow' citizens; it showed
that they appreciated the fact that the
government of North, Carolina belongs
to the people, and .that .they . were en
quiring how that government was be'ug
administered. Parties, if they are what
they ought to be, are merely organized
agencies for the administration of what
belongs to the people. Sometimes - par
ties were organized for the purpose of
making raids on the treasury, and for
this reason it becomes the duty of the
people to enquire r'.'ato such organiza
tions and give their support to the one
that administers their affairs in accord
ance with law, good order ,'and economy.
If the t'me had arrived when the pe
pie were convinced that the Republican
pa. y would best administer their af
fairs, then they should go to the ballot
box and vote to restore that pajw to
power. On the other hand, if the Demo
cratic party had been faithful to its
trust; had administered the laws hon
estly, fairly and economically, then
there is no reason why it should be
turned out and the other party put in
Both these parties have had their dav
in North Carolina, and if he could only
get rae people to nstitute this enquiry
about their management as they would
about their private affairs; if he could
only get them to be as just to the gov
ernment as to themselves individually.
he could convince every fair minded
man that it is best to retain the Demo
cratic paiiy in power in fioith Carolina.
Tne Governor then instituted a com-.a
parson 'between, - Republican rule in,
Noith Carolina' for the' years: 1868r4J andr
Democratic ru'e for the years lo79-0.
showing tliat the Republicans spent over
$1,800,000 for- the two years in admin
istering the laws while the D mocrats
spent about $900,000 for the same purpose-in
Fame length of time. He also
showed that the Republicens built no
asylum for the colored insane, no asylum
for the deaf, dumb and blind, built no
school 'houses, carried on no schools,
while the Democrats had built an asylum
at Goldsboro for the colored insane, had
built one at Morgan ton for - the whites,
had revived the State University, had
built and were still building school
houses all over State and carrying on
public schools for the education of both
rcces the blacks receiving an equal
proportion with the whites. In shoiu,
it was the same old arraignment of the
Republican party that has been used
against them for the last ten years, and
the same figures and comparisons that
wore made in the campaign of 1830, but
the Governor's manner of presenting
the facts and figures made them fresh
and vigorous, and revealed the fact tliat
they are still good campaign documen i.
He claimed for the Democratic pay
the honor of compromising and selling
its just debt of twelve and a halt mil
lions of dollars, reducing it to three and
a half millions, the interest on which is
being annually paid without any in
crease of taxation. This they were en
abled to do by practicing the most rigid
economy in administering the laws, and
by having disiiosed of the Western N. C.
Itailroad by which they saved about
$175,000 annually. He also made the
point for the Democratic party, that not
a dollar of new debt had been created
since they got control .of the State gov
ern ment.
Hie revenue plank in the Democratic
platform was endorsed. He claimed
tliat if tlie protective tariff was abolished
and one made tor revenue only, it would
give ample funds for t"io administration
of the government. This being the case,
he was in favor ot abolishing the reve
nue system. (What would Senator
Ransom do for appropriations?) He
chareed that the collection of the one
hundred and fifty millions of dollars in
excess of the actual expenses of carry
ing on the government, was roDnery.
To give the audience an idea of what
$150,000,000 is, he told them how many
horses, railroad cars and engines it
would take to carry it to Washington
City if it was in silver dollars.
The Governor "arose to a question of
personal privilege1'' on this subject.
After a little fling at a certain class of
journalists in North Carolina that
class, we presume, who are bold enough
to criticize his actions whenever they
think necessary he gave an explana
tion of the laws granting convicts to the
Quaker Bridge Road and the Western
N. C. Railroad in full-.'accord with the
opinion given by Attorney -General
Keuan over a year ago. He said that
the convicts put to work on Capitol
square in Raleigh were such as were
not fit to send off to the Western N. C.
Railroad : that at his suggestion the pen
itentiary board wrote to the commis
sioners of Quaker Bridge Road to come
to Raleigh and select their convicts, and
after the chairman of the commissioners
had g
tion, t'..
pronon r
such ,sei v i e; .
to send them i ...
furthermore the (.
have discharged evt ,
itentiary board had t. ; a
der such circumstances, lie wai in
favor of punishing crime, but was op
posed to treating pi i ;oner3 inhumanly,
and this sentiment the Journal, heartily
endorses. ,-4
While the Governoru madeT-apparent-
ly. a very satisfactory explanation to a
majority of his audience on this road
question, yet, to one who is acquainted
with the whole circumstances connect
ed with it, there is one point still unex
plained. When the penitentiary board
wrote to the chairman of Uie road com
missioners to go to: Raleigh, and select
ihAir convicts, and after the chairman
had done so and the Warden wrote him
that the physician had examined his
squad and pronounced them unfit for
duty: the Journal charged that the an
thorities in charge1 of the penitentiary
were guilty of a trick and should re
sign. The Governor says the letter re
questing the commissioners to come up
and select their convicts was written at
his suggestion. Now did he not know,
did not the penitentiary board ,bnow,
tliat there were no convicts there lit for
work on the Quaker Bridge Road , when
tliat letter was written ? .
The Governor explained tliat there
were not enough convicts to supply
even the W. N. C. R. R., because crime
had decreased; lie wa glad in his heart
that such was the case and we rejoice
with him,' and hope that the time will
soon come when the Legislature will
see fit toto justice to the East, and will
open up roads through the public lands
ot the State that tney may oe utiuzea ior
the common school funds. , . ,
Letter from Norfolk.
Norfolk,-Va., Aug. 8th, 1882.:
Mr. EDrroBirr-There t is much to be
seen in our neighbor by : the - sea. tVast
improvements are going on and : the
wheels of commercial progress are not
only running smoothly but rapidly to a
distinguished prominence.
- Norfolk is not relying only on the
commercial advantages she enjoys but
is paying no little attention to the man
ufacturing also,. Aa the number of ar
ticles that are manufactured here would
require too much space for a letter of
this kind, I shall omit them - but must
allude to an agreeable surprise that I
met in my. wanderings about the city.
It was a fully equipped locomotive
building establishment. I was shown
by the proprietors,' Messrs. T. W. God
win & Co. v a photograph of an elegant
locomotive which they had forwarded
the day before to St.,Louis, and also one
the week before to a road in South
America. This establishment; has facil
ities for turning out a locomotive com
plete in about six weeks t'me, carries a
pay-roll of about $200 per day, has or
ders for at least six months ahead ; and
best of all two of the proprietors are
native Virginians and the other one is
from the far west, showing that there is
both pluck and talent in - the South to
erapple with the most difficult and ex
pensive mechanical arts and push them
to success. i i meet nere many norm
Carolinians who are all proud of their
Own State and look with great "pleasure
Upon the evidences of prosperity among
her citizens. " '" hi -1 '
I am indebted to our - former , towns
man and genial citizen, Thomas L.' La
tham, for many courtesies and atten
tion. He is, as he alwayslwas, deeply inter
ested in his business, but if you J press
him with a good joke you can still pro
voke a laugh from him as clear and
heai ly as when he was on the corner op
posite where the Jewels cluster. '
Through him l was anoraea tne
pleasure of hearing one, of a series of
sermons to young men, by Rev.4 Dr."
Burrows of "the city, which by the way,
will be published in the columns oi i
your enterprising neighbor tne new
South. They are the emanation oi a
highly cultured mind enriched with a
graphic descriptive power, tliat at once
carries conviction to the mind of the
hearer that what he says is solid .truth.
Better reading for the yOung men and
women too, can be but seldom found. -,j

Mr. J. Dean of Pamlico had his mills,
both saw and grist, and cotton gin des
troyed by fire last Friday night or Sat
urday morning a little before day, sup
posed to be the work of an incendiary
nend. Mr. jjean nas tne sincere sym
pathy of every good citizen in Pamlico.
I have not been able to learn whether
he was insured or not.
The wet weather continues. Rain
every day and a flood every two or
three days; while I write it is pouring
down. The jute crop that bid fair to
yield such a bountiful crop three weeks
since is reported to be a total failure,
and corn and cotton is injured over half
in the southern and eastern jiortion of
the county and materially injured in
every part. Rice and old corn still hold
their own.
Quite a boom in improvements in
our section. Mr. O. D. Lane is build
ing him a residence near here
and a joint stock company of farm
ers have organized and raised capital
enough to build a gin house and fit it up
with a tweiit horse power engine for
the puipose of ginning ana grinding,
not only for themselves but for all who
wish to patronize them; and they are
also going to run an extensive mercan
tile business in connection witii tueir
gin and muling business, lheir gin
house is under way. It is being located
about 4 miles below hereon Trent Creek
near P. O. Lart.
Mr. C. II. Fowler, of this place, is pre
paring to build and fit up an elegant sa
loon and other additions tnat nis traue
requires. Mr. A. H. Hamlin has bought
a lot iu this place and is preparing to
build thereon a eomto.ible dwelling
and there are many others that could lie
mentioned, but I suppose 1 nave saul
Pink Hill (Lenoir Co.) Items-
We siill continue to have showers in
this section. I see cotton ;n some pla
ces isbegii ling to shed.
We made a trin t.o miner Jones coun
tv a few days ago in the neighborhood
of Mr. W. G. Fordham. He took us
t.hrono-h a nortion of his crop. He has
tho finnct. rrvllnri T have seen this vear
Ho itit'nraiwl ns that, his nrosnects for a
good crop so far were the best he had
had lor a number ot years, nis crop
showed sitrns of excellent cultivation
He is indeed a model farmer. Crops
cenerallv throuorhout this neighborhood
" . " . . " 1...4-
were looking exceeumgiy wen, uut
they were fearing too much rain, as the
showers were very frequent.
We were shown a few days ago by
Mr. J. K. Tyndal a patch of coUon, the
seed of which he obtained a few years
ago of Mr. W. G. Fordham. It is of the
Simpson kind. Mr. Tyndal informed
us that he had been trying to improve
this cotton every year by selecting from
the most well formed and boiled "stalks
and thought he had succeeded in mak
ing an improvement. We think it
showed it beyond doubt. If farmers
generally would adopt this plan of se
lecting their seed we would make mucli
more and better cotton.
We had occasion to visit the Bush
Branch section of Pink Hill hot long
since in company with R. K. Noble. We
made our first halt at Blaney Harper's,
as he informed uf he had some excel
lent cider that was not siceet. We dis
mounted and tossed off a bumper to the

Aa wo neared old
father of .our comrade, (Dick Noble)
and who too is one of' bur 'worthiest
neighbors. Dick informed us that they
had cider, watermelons, etc., which we
were not surprised to hear. Dick has
certainly learned the art of making
watermelons, as his patch conclusively
allowed, fur 1 never saw ' so many fine
watermelons in so small a place; but we
are of the opinion that friend Dick . ia
now studying the ai t of finding that
"lost wife" of his, as we heard an old
gentleman ask the question the other
day: "Are you not most ready or me
to- call you cousin yet V". This looks
like strong symptons." "' .
...Dick has some fine cotton. . We did
not see fcn'y more of his crop but took it
for gra'nlei (having - examined his cot
ton closely) that the corn, chufas, etc.,
was nice. After taking on a supply of
watermelon and some good cider (they
have no other kind) and mounted again
and drove for old John K's. (Noble) as
he is familiarly called.'
Here in this-neighborhood, Messrs.
Editors, a clever people -who it seems,
they make it a part of their business to
be content and happv Therr crops are
excellent. . - ' ,'"r
While in this ' neighborhood our at
tion was somewhat attracted- to: the
beautiful dwelling house ofMr.. Isaiah
Smith,' Just across Buck branch .on3 a
beautiful hill' from' Mr. - Noble.' 1 Isaiah
is a stiring young man", ho. informed us
the other day that the only thing he
lacked was a good wife 'to arrange the
furniture and inform him how. high to
fix tlie mantle piece etc I have been
informed that lie thought his 'heart had
bursted and coming out under his arm,
resembling in substance that of. brains.
