"The Provisional Governor" of North Carolina.
--A Hatteras correspondent of the Boston Traveller
thus describes the pursuits of the Governor
appointed by the sand-bar Convention to exercise jurisdiction over the districts of the State
occupied by the Federal
We also passed a small church in which we were told the Governor
of North Carolina
Start not at this announcement.
The fact is susceptible of an easy explanation.
It will be remembered that a few weeks ago a handful of the professedly loyal people of this region held a Convention and attempted to organize a loyal Provisional Government.
A Rev. Mr. Taylor
, who is represented as a sort of Parson Brownlow
, was chosen Governor, and here is the church in which he officiates.
It is a one story, unpainted, dilapidated looking affair as we have seen for many a day, Half its panes were gone, it had no pews, only rough board seats, the pulpit was a mere square box, while the floor was covered with fifth.
Reverence for the sanctuary seems not remarkably well developed at Hatteras
With the Person, who aspires to gubernatorial honors, we had not the good fortune to meet.
If his appearance corresponds with that of his church, we could not consider ourselves peculiarly unfortunate.
