2:n't fca Witty Abo'it Sacred Things.
The Itev.Thos. Dixon, of New
York City, i? reported to have
preached recently on the sub
ject : ,,IIell Always Open."
Upon hearing this the Balti

Hell is. not a summer resort. It
is never closed for repairs."
Now all of this may be true, no
doubt it is true, but we think
this flippant way of handling
the sacred or the awful is to be
regretted. It adds nothing to
the respect for the one, or the
dread of the other. Gentlemep,

witty, do take some other sub

The penitentiary has just
scooped one of our best known
citizens. There are few more
tamiliar faces in Statesville
than that of Jhon l'eimster,
otherwise "l'.eef Lip," but the
court laid its hand on him and
the sheritF took him to Raleigh
Monday. He is fond of cheese
and had manifested his weak
ness at the depot ou a certain
occasion not long ago, when a
box car was being unloaded.
Having been takeu in the act,
the burden of proof was on
"Ueef lip" to show that he had
no felonious intent, but being a
negro and haviug only eight
lawyers he was notjable to do it.
The State proved beyond a
reasonable doubt that "Beef
Lip'' had been irregular in hi
dealing with regard to the
cheese, and so the places which
have heretofore known him will
know him no more for a year.

Carolina rendered a decision

"Merchants have the ir -board
of trade,' the speculators their
'trj iles union,' lawyers and
physicians their associations,
the mechanic and the manufac
turer their organizations under
different names for the purpose
of establishing uniform prices
of their merchandise and fixing
the prices of their professional
service. The man who tills the
soil is at the mercy of these
combinations, because his
power is paralyzed for want of
organization and want of action.
He has no power to lix the
prices of his products to sell in
the market nor the articles he
buys for home consumption.
The uricesof the one are fixed
before the crop matures, and
the other is established by

The tluniata sailed up from Cey
lon, aui made her first stoo at
Nagapatiim, a port of no commer
cial importance near the lower ex
tremity of the peniiibiila. The ship
lay at anchor i mile or more from
the coast, in the open sea, and at
the outset seemed to ho regarded
curioufly by the inhabitant. As
this was the first man -of war that
had ever visited the place, It creat
ed a wide spread alarm among the
natives. Laige crowds of people
gathered ou the beach, and watch
ed the ship all (Jay long, which was
to them an uau-ual siiht, and bod
ed nothing hut evil iu its visita
tion. The terror spread like wild
fire from village to village, and was
iu no wise allayed by the tiring of
a salute from our guns. So deep-
seated were their tears that, when
a party of European residents pro
posed to visit the ship, their ser
vants and other natives clung to
them with wailing and entreaties
and bade them good-v, believing
that they would nev o-ruru alive.
After a time some t,i tnc more dar
ing ventured out iu their tihiiig
boats, and when it was found that
we were harmless frequent visits
were made to the ship with quanti
ties of fruit aud vegetables. The
town has a population of hlty
thousand, aud is a place of no es
pecial interest, isolated as it is
fiom tie; world, although flouting
the sea that ia traversed by the
hiiips of all nations.
A sail of a few leagues toward
the north brought our .ship to the
French city of rondicherry, the
once famous Gallic outpost in the
East. Although the long iron pier,
that reaches out into the sea, makes
the lauding for the boats more
easy, the swell of the ocean keeps
the vessel Killing and rooking in an
uncomfortable manner. On the day
of our arrival the European portion
of the community, most of whom
are French, sent out to us an end
less stream of visitors. The young
ladies would trip as gaily as may
he over the gangway, laughing
and talking about the sights on
board a man-of-war. They relished
the situation lor a few moments
only, for the heaving of the ship
produced unpleasant sensations,
and they m variably left us m some
haste to recover from the effects of
sea-sickness. Although a French
province, neither a garrison nor a
war vessel Is allowed by treaty
stipulation to he kept in this port.
The town utaads on a sandy
plain, guarded by a citadel, and is
divided iuto a European and a na
tive settlement. Its streets are
narrow but clean, aud it contains a
haudsoine square, and many very
tine buildings, cathedrals and
bazaars. No grass or shuhhery is
to be seen anywhere, but in many
quarters large trees line the thor
oiighfaies a id form pleasant
groves. In the surrounding coun
try rice and iea-uuts are grown ex
tensively, and cocoa-nuts form the
principal native product. The
population numbers one hundred
thousand, the most of whom are
natives, who wear but little cloth
ing, live in large families in mud
huts, jiuil plaster their hair down
with oil from the cocoa. Passen
gers are conveyed aoout the place
in small carriages, which are push
ed by two men and guided by one
of the occupants of the vehicle, and
are called push -push. Over the
level roads one may be pushed at a
very lively rate for forty cents a
day. The pushers are black India
men, whose entire wardrobe con
sists of a 1 urban and a brief gar
ment about the loins.
About live miles beyond the
limits of the town may be seen a
large Buddhist pagoda, to which
we joiiineved one day in push
pushes. The temple is a grotesque
and gloomy building, surrounded
by a high wall, at the entrance of
which stands a pyramid, more than
two hundred feet high, entirely
covered with crude and ill-shapen
figures of men and women and of
strange things of earth and sea.
We were denied admittance to this
sanctuary, as too profane for the
place. A religions feature of the
temple is the nautch dance, in the
sacred service of which parents
give up their daughters, who he
come known as Nautch girls, and
dance at certain times at the do, r
of the temple, giving to religious
uses all money that may he re
ceived While we were in waiting at flic
door, a hand of musicians came out
upon an elevated balcony before
the temple, accompanied by tour
women. One of the jeeu played on
a fiddle, another beat a tom-tom,
or drum, with his hands, the third
clashed a pair of cvmbals anl the
other played on Unto. The girls
are line-featured Hindoos, and
wear bright colored, close-fitting
sacks, that cover tl.e iie.iiil.-rs and
reach halfway ro the wai-t. Their
dress consists of ten var-i- of gaudy
cloth, which is wound about their
limbs and fastened at the .ost,
leaving an end long enough to be
thrown loosely over the -tnuilder.
They wear strings of bells around
the ankles, and ri gs on then- toes
and iu their noses and eats, aui
present a very picturesque appear-1
ance in their novel costumes, in
many instances glittering with
precious stones. Both the band i
ami the girls kept up a continual
sing-song, in low, measured and
dreamful cadence., The music con- ;
tinued, and the Nautch girls danced ;
one at a time and then all together.

Still farther up t ie coast, ex i
posed to the open sea, is the opu j
lent city of Madras, extending over
a large territory aud skirted by in j
numerable Indian villages. For j
ten miles or more the city lies I
spread out along the shores. '
against which the heavy surf is ai- j
ways roiling Immense break waters '
of artificial xtone reach out on :
either side, converging to a narrow ;
openitig. and form a sate entrance j
to the only harbor on the coast. A
colossal light house, one of the hu g-'
est in the world, signals the mai ;
iiier and guides lnui over tin '
waters. The city has good railway j
communication with Bombay and '
Calcutta, and is the uapited of the
Madras presidency. With a million j
inhabitants, emhraciug a large
number of European residents ami '
merchants, with numerous indus
tries aud some euteipri.se, aud pre
senting all the shifiiag phases of
Orieutal lite, there is much in Ma
dras to incite interesi.
In the native town, which is by
far the greater part of the city, the
Hindoo customs, c.istiimes and
modes prevail. The narrow streets
are always crowded with pedes
trians, who jostle cue another oh
all sides. No one thinks of confin
ing himself to the sidewalks, but
makes free use of every part of the
street. mingling promiscuously j
wirn carnages aud push pushes- ;
and disputing the way with bill- j
locks and horses. In ruling in aj
carriage it is necessary to employ I
several servants to rua ahead anil '
clear the srreet, so heedless are the j
people who seem lost to all sense
of danger. Oue can but see in the i
dense throng, through which he!

ent stupidity, which is due to thej
excessive use of tobacco, opium !
and a liquor made from nee called 1
arak, quite common among the na i
fives. Little naked buss will run i
along by the side of a carriage to i
attract attention, and are pretty '
sure to accomplish their object in a 1
startling manner. Ii some way!

Among the beauto'iil buildings j
that give a modern a;r to many of !

When it is remembered that
newspaper editors have no oppor
tunity of re writing their articles,
and frequently have not the time
even to read them over after writ
ing them, it's astonishing that they
make so few grammatical er other
mistakes and that their st.le n of
ten so clear ami collect.. Those
whoj write .books often, spend
months and sometimes years in re
writing them, and yet one frequent
ly sees a newspaper article, written
in the hurry tit the moment and
under pressure, which, in brilliancy
of diction, cogently of argument
t.iitl elegance of style, is the equal
and sometimes the .siijieiior to any
