Truth Arout Horace Greeley.—
Mr. Greeley's personal participation iu the
campaign lias been to his signal credit.
During two hundred speeches, short and
long, and for the most part sudden and im
promptu, he uttered no unwise word. On
the other hand, these railway Mid bal
cony utterances demonstrated to the Amer
ican people their author's uncommon no
bility of mind and heart. Mr. Greeley, by
his brief candidacy, has made a greater in
tellectual and moral impression than Gen.
Grant by his whole Presidency This ex
hibition of magnificent common sense iu
Hie candidate shows what a rare aud admi
rable behavior we would get from him in
the Presidential chair. ‘•Whatever hap
pens iu November,” said Mr. Greeley to a
few friends the other day, ‘I hope it will be
said ef me that 1 hare acted my pnrt and
done my duty well.” We believe that
this tribute will he universal and sponta
neous throughout the ranks of the I.iher
al Republican and Democratic parties
From the begining of the canvass until
now, nigh its close, Mr. Greeley lias grown
steadily in the respect of his opponents
and the esteem of his friends. —Golden Age.
The Wonders of Lace Making.—
The manufacture of lace is carried to its
highest perfection in Belgium. The finest
specimens of Brussels lace is so complicat
ed as to require the labor of seven persons
on one piece, and each operative is em
ployed at distinct features of the work.
The thread used is of exquisii fineness,
which is spun in dark, underground rooms,
where it is sufficiently moist to prevent
the thread from separating. It i so deli
cate as scarcely to he seen, and the room
is so arranged that all the light admitted
shall fall upon the work. It is such ma
terial that renders the gouuine Brussels
ground so costly.
On q, piece of Valenciennes, not two
inches wide, from two to three hundred
bobbins are sometimes used, and for the
larger width as many as 800 on the same
pillow. The most valuable Valenciennes
is determined by the number of times the
bobbins have been twisted in making the
ground ; the more frequent the twists
the clearer and more beautiful will he the
lace. Belgium annually sells oil'this lace
alone to the value of $4,000,000. Chan
tilly lace is always black, and used chielly
for veils and flounces. It is very fine,
and is extensively worn. Mechlin lace i9

Octogenarian Visit —On last Tues
day, Dr. E. E. Jones and Dr. 11. J. Ogilby,
two of the early settlers in Madison, paid
a visit to Mrs. Ann Satfoid, the venerable
and aged relic of tha late Judge Adam G.
Safiold. Mrs. 8. came to Madison soon
after her marriage in Greene county on
Dec. 15th, 1812, and lived in a small house
on the rear part of the lot now occupied
by Dr. G. B. Kuight, But one white citi
zen, Mrs. Samuel Shields now remains,
who resided here when she came. Dr.
Jones first lived in the country and re
moved to Madison about 1814, and Dr.
Ogilby came fr#m Caswell county N. C.,
about 1825. They reverted to days of yore
and alluded to seeiug the road hands digg
ing grubs iu Main street, while another
associated his earliest recollection with
the time when the Uncle ol one of our
present merchants was clerking in a small
log store-house, where now stands Mr.
Oscar Thomason's elegant hiick store
house. During the conversation many
incidents of the past were lived over again.
The old log houses, and rude tenements
were torn down, and our beautiful city
built during their day One of the party
asked Mrs. 8. her age. when she replied,
that if she lived to see her next birth day
on January Bth she would be eighty years
old : and Dr. Ogilby said he was in his
seventy second year. Dr. Jones was re
quested as to his age, when ho replied
with his usual vivacity he was "too smart
for that ” as he might yet “ fool some
young girl." None can appreciate the
interest of such a visit, except those who
have witnessed one. —Madison Appeal.
Cotton. —The receipts of cotton at all the
ports for the past week were 7 4,146 hales,
against 64,208 hales the previous week.
The total receipts since September 1,
1872, are 230,155 hales, against 122,596
hales for the corresponding period of pre
vious year, showing an increase of 107,-
559 bales in the present crop. The ex
ports from all the port- for the week were
27,901 bales, against 3,189 bales for the
same week last year. The total exports
for the expired portion of the cotton year
are 67,189 bales, against 56,024 Dales for
the same time last year. The stock at all
the ports is 162,648 bales, against 116,-
385 bales for the same period in 1871.
Thompson's Reporter. Oct. 15.
Common Cabbixbs. —ln reply to a
North Carolina subscriber, the New York
Journal of Commerce repeats that limita
tions of liability which from the chief part
of the printed matter in hills of lading do
not necessarily govern the responsibility
of common carriers. An express com
pany may cover its receipts with notice
that were the value of the package is not
named the company will not he liable for
more than fifty dollars ; but if it accepts
the Carriage of a package of ordinary mer
chandise with no stipulated value named
in the contract, it will be liable for its full
value in case of miscarriage. A carrier is
not liable ior delay unless neglect can be
shown, and the owner cannot recover
damages for detention unless he can show’
that the carrier did not show ordinary
