Good old father Loring editor of the Goldsboro Tribune, was 70 years old on Monday. He has spent a lifetime
in the editorial corps, and his declining strength, it seems, only adds vigor to his pen. An aged and esteemed
father of our craft, we look upon him as the patriarch and pioneer of newspsperdom, and trust that many years
may yet be given him to labor so ably and faithfully as he has heretofore. Energy, ability and consistency are
the reigning traits of his character. Fayetteville North Carolinian.
