Twq Burglaries and a Robbery
The thieves and burglars seem to hive
been having it pretty much their own,
way in Brooklyn for the past three days
and nights and have been laying in a
stock of goods suflioient for themt to pass
the summer on. Sunday night an en
trance was effected into the residence of
Mr. Thos. Williams, living near the cor
ner of Fourth and Nixon streets. A back
window was forced open and the thieves
entered, ransacking each room as they
passed through, and finally robbed Mr.
Williams' sleeping apartments of meney
jewelry, and articles ef clothing.
Some time during the same night the
house of a colored woman, situated in
about a square from Mr. W's. residence,
was robbed ot her week's provisions, but
as the old woman was not a very heavy
sleeper she came near capturing them
She describes the thieves who burglarized
her abode (as "two niggers one a great
loug thin nigger and a nigger boy".
She thinks she would know "dat nigger'
if she could ever see him again. Some
time during the day on Monday two gem
rnins of sable hue entered the store of Mr.
D- Orton, on the corner of Seventh and
Nixon streets, and asked to see some cali
co, which was shown them. They order
ed Mr. Orton to cut off so many yards
and as he turned to get his yard stick the
thieves picked up the bolt of calico and
bolted off without bidding Mr. Orton
good morning. We have heard of two or
three' thefts of less import, which were
committed in the same neighbjrh od
within the past week.

Parade and Target Practice of the
Wilmington Light Infanry.
The Wilmington Light Infantry cele
brated their anniversary yesterday after
noon by a parade through the streets and
a target practice at Hilton. The inclem
ent weather deterred many from tarring
out, but notwithstanding this fact Capt
Coaey mustered out twenty-nine men.
The target practice was for a gold medal
of new design and was won by Mr. R. H
Beery and will be worn by him until it is
won by some other member at the target
exercises on their next anniversary. The
range was one hundred 'yards, three
rounds to each member. Messrs. R. M.
Houston and John R. Latta were the
judges. The badge has not yet been re
ceived by the Company, but is expected
in the conrse of a few days. I
A Delightful Entertainment.
Quits a large audience of ladies and
gentlemen assembled last evening in
Meginney's Hall to witness an exhibition
of the pupils ef Misses Burr and James'
schcol which consisted of calisthenic exer
cises and vocal, and instrumental music.
The calisthenics were of a high order f
merit, being performed with and without
apparatus and in pantomime. These per
forated with rings wrre intricate, but were
very gracefully executed. The "Mistletoe
Bough," was rendered in pantomime CaL
isthenics, while one of the scholars a
young lady read, or recited the poem in
a beautiful and impressive manner. Mrs
M.S. Cushiug, the Musical Director, at
the same time played in minor chords upon
the piano, making the whole performance
one of singular beauty and pathos. The
vocal duet, "Beautiful Moonlight," was
exquisitely rendered by Misses Cassidey
and Ledford , their sweet voices blending
harmoniously and in perfect accord. The
charge of the Light Brigade, which was
certainly a thrilling part of the entertain
ment, combined elocution and calisthenics.
The Kindergarten ga me or a Balland
Song" by many of the little ones showed
great care and training and reflected, as it
should have done, much credit upon the
teacher as well a the pupils; it was
very unique and pretty. Calisthenics in
pantomime representing grief, joy and
other emotions of the human soul were
pretty and graceful.
The instrumental part of the exhibi
was most excellent, as the majority of the
pupils who performed on this occasion,
so we are informed are new beginners or
pupils of one or two sessions only. The
crowning feature ef the entertain nent
was a ring exercise in calisthenics per
formed by the entire school, with only a
few exceptions. This movement was
most difficult to perform, but at the same
time was executed in a marvellously ac
curate manner. The larger onesj forming
a ring while the wee little ones dodged in
and out ef the ring keeping perfect time
and place as they moved in and around
each child finding its own preper place
at the conclusion. ,v
The audience were rapturous in their
approval et the exhibition throughout
the entire entertainment, and it no doubt
is very gratifying "to the ladies of the
seminary to know that their immense pains
taking and labor to improve bath the men
tal and physical condition of the children
under them in the different exercises has
not been all in vain as was amply evi
denced last night, and it is an additional
gratification we must believe to the lady
teachers to know that their efforts have
been so well appreciated by the children
of older grewth, who attended last night
and gave such enthusiastic appreciation
of the pleasure which all experienced at
mat night's entertainment.
From Captain Garrasen of the steamer
D. MurchUon, we learn that the .river
rose fifteen feet at Fayetteville on Satur
day last, bat that since that time the
water has been gradually subsiding.

The weather has bun bad for the

days have been quite favorable, barring
a "little too much wet, and the farmers are
fighting the grass with all the for 3 at
their command. It is to be hoped that
the disasters which attended their efforts
last year may not visit them this season.
At Magnolia, which seems to be doom
ed by the frequent cocflagratic ns which
occur there, the prevailing complaint is o
dull times, and business is stagnant.
Here the W. &. W. Railroad Company
has just completed one of the finest de
pots on the whole line of the road. It
was much needed, and the people ot the
town feel justly proud of the substantial

Doings at charlotte Yesterday.
From a gentleman who was present at
Charlotte yesterday, we learn that there
was at least five thousand people present
to listen to the Hon. Wm. M. Robbins,
the orator ot the day, in celebrating the
One Hundred and Fourth Anniversary of
the Mecklenburg Declaratioa of Indepen
dence. Gov. Jarvis, Lieutenant Gov.
Robinson and Hon. D. G. Fowle were
among the celebrities on the speaker's
Aiter Mr. Robbins' fine oration, His Ex
cellency Gov. Jarvis responded to numer
ous calls in a neat little speech, after
which Judge Fo wle in answer to frequent
calls made a very eloquent and happy
speech of about diteen miuutes duration
which we understand wii very much ad
mired by all who beard it.
From the samo source we nndnritliul
that Col. C. VV. Alexander, wnose
resignation as C-ljnel of the
Second Raiment hal bsen
accepted again rejected by the
officers of taat regiment iu Charlotte yes
terday by every vote that was cast, ex
cept three which Col. Alexander held the
proxy for himself. It ia due to CjI.
Alexander to say in this connection that
it was only at the urgeut solicitation of
his friends among the officers from the

Lieutenant that he at last accepted the
