The first domestic event iu the history of the State was the sending out of a sort of volunteer commission to look at the beautiful lands of the Cherokee in Western North Carolina and Tennessee in the year 1731. Ten white men and a few Indiana went, and amoDg them was John Ashe, whence possibly the name of Asheville. Gabriel Johnson in 1736 spoki of the factious, the ignorance of the commissioners of this State. As late as 1752 there were only 20,000 whites in North Carolina and 10,000 slave and free negroes. Slavery did not take here as fiercely as in either South Car olina or Virginia The early taxes were very high. The mothers of illegitimate child ren were sent to jail until they would betray the fatherhood, and the father must either give security to take of the child or he was hired out at auction No exemption was made for ministers of the go-pel trespas sing in this respect. Auother decided event was the arrival of the Scotch Jacobities. But the great fact of this State was not any eettle ment from the east whatever, but the settlement from the western part of the State from a wholly different eource. North Carolina had eo languish ed that all its healthy high western districts were unoccu pied. There slowly crept in the rear of the seacost denizens of vigorous scotch, Irish and occasionallv German elements including Moravians fromproli fic Pennsylvania, These, people multiplying fast and knowing good land when they saw it, rapidly overran W. tern Mary land, came down Virginia valley and Ir.cl: up tbo good farms and following the Blue Ridge mountain began to fill up western North Carolina. They were in the main Presbyterians though some other elements were attached to them, such as Lutherns. There were also (ierman Baptise elements in the combination. Thee were the people who settd the vgorous towns like Char lotte, Salisbury etc. Finally North Carolina was taen away from its proprietors and made a royal providence, which was a great advantage, though it ctired up some opposition. No founder of any State in Ameri ca who owned the land in his family ever amounted to any thing except William Penn. Chicago Times.

A PLEASANT VOICE- It is to The Heart What Light is to The Human Eye There is no power of love so hard to get and keep as a kind voice. A kind hand is deaf and dumb. It may be rough iu flesh and blood, yet do the work of a soft heart, and do it with a soft touch. But there is no one thing that love so much needs as a sweet voice to tell what it means and feels, and it is hard to get and keep it iu the right tone. One must start in youth and be on the watch night and day, at work, at play, to get and keep a voice that shall speak at all times the thought of a kind heart. 1 would say to all the boys and girls : "Use a kind voice at home." Watch it day by day as a pearl of great price, for is will be worth to you in days to come more than the best pearls hid in the sea. A kind voice is at lark's song to hearth aud home. It is to the heart what light is to the eye, Farm aud Fireside. Eucklcn's Arniea Salve. The Best Sak in th. world lor Cuts, Bruises, Sores. 1.

I had just whistled for the crossing and put ou the brakes whea the coupling between the tender ana the cnage-car broke. "I see, I see," murmured the judge. "At the same moment some thing weitt wrong with old Xo 40, and I could not shut off steam.

"Then, at a crossin?. she left metals, entered a cornfield,and, bearing to the righ, plowed her way across the country until she came to our own road again.

I am requested by the editor of the Chrenicle to furnish him with some "Marginalia" especi ally oppropriate to Christmas. I should be at a loss where to begin but for the newspaper reports of the re-appearauce, just at this time, of the "Star of Bethlehem," which is said to be now visible about three o'clock every morning in the south-eastern heavens. Those who claim to identify it, de- scribes it as a star of unusual magnitude and radiation. How irresistibly its Christmas-tide revisitation invokes sacred memories of Him over whose cradle it stood in tha bltssed dawn of redemption, who was nimseu "the bright and morn ing star" of our faith unto salvation ! What glorious imageries, hoDes and asnira tions have always clustered around a star! Time cannot hackney nor custom state the Deauty of Byrons immortal lines : Ye stars ! which are the poetry of ueaveu : If in your bright leaves we would read the late Of men and empires, -'tis to be forgiven. That in our asp ratious to be gre;t, uur destinies o er lead their mortal state.

That the 'myriad-minded Shakspeare" should have failed to celebrate in his mortal verse the capital event in the world's history, is not for a moment to be supposed. So, we Cud among the most exquisite passages in Hamlet the follow ing reference to the crowing of the cock through Christmas Eve : "Some say that ever 'gamot that season comes Wherein our Saviom's birth is celebrated. The bird of dawning singeth all nint long, And then, they say, no spirit can waiK abroad. The nights are wholesome, theu no planet strike, No fairy takes, nor witch hnth power to charm. So hallow'd and so grneiom is the time. Nor in vain do wo lok for the celebration of Chri :tmas t y that living poet who (with the exception of Byron aud Shelly) has been without a superior since Shaspeare. "Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky," is justly admired by every admirer of Tennyson, but sweeter far to me are the fol lowing from that same Iu Me moriain : 'The time draws near the hirth of Christ : The moon is hid ; the night is still; The Christmas bells from hill to hill Answer ea.ru other in the mist. Four voices of four hamlets round, Prom far and near, ou mead and moor, Swell out and fail, as if a door Were shut between me and the sound. Each voices four changes on the wind, That now dilate, and now decrease, Peace and good will, good will and peace Peace and good will to all mankind.
