Where Is the Army I
An episode occurred it Halifax, on the
W. & W. Railroad, on the lt inst., in
which a proper punishment was admin
istered to an offending criminal, And in
which the character of the colored race
assumed a new, and in our opinion, a
brighter and more commendable phase.
The circumstances, as related to us by
Capt. John Barry, Roadtbaster of the
W. & W. Railroa i, are substantially as
follows: ! J
A gravel train belonging to the com
pany, which gives employment to about
30 colored laborers, has been at work for
some time in the vicinity of Halifax. The
ratio j8 for the men are, of course furnish
ed by the company. For; several week
past there has been an unaccountable di
minution in the meat, and 'he hands con
eluded among themselves that when the
thief was discovered they would, take the
law into their own hands and administer
adequate punishmeut. On Saturday, May
31st, it was ascertained tuat the pilferer
was a mulatto named Francis Med way,
working in the gang, who took the rations
fc0 feed a number ot dusky female favorites
h?p3Q and on Sunday morning, the 1st

Thus far about 15 have signified a desire
to become connected with the Church,
and last night about 25 penitents were at
the altar invoking the mercy which should
lead them into salvation. The meetings
will be continued throughout the week.
Rev. Mr. Yates, th9 paster of the Church,
has been very ably assisted in his labors
by Mr. McPhersonand wife, of the Society
of Friends. Mr. McPhersou is a preacb.tr

pleads earnestly for the salvation of souls
in the spirit of prayer. Their teachings

WILMINGTON; N. C
The Inducements Offered.
Wilm ngton present to excursionists
and pleasure seekers unusual advantages
and facilities. Parties along the lines of
the railroads centering in tkis city would
be amply rewarded by taming their at
tention this way. The beautiful and fast
steam yacht Pmport makes daily trips
to Smithville and the fortifications and
gi ves excursionists sufficient time to take
long and invigorative whiffs of salt air.
On the downward trip passengers have a
full and excellent view of the water front
including the ship yard, fluatiug compress
and cotton mills and just below thf
city limits the renowned Dram Tree. The
river widens out to about three miles and
the jetties are passed. The rice ields art
next to be seeu with the famous dwellings
)f the Cape Fear farmers picturesquely
dotted in beautiful groves. The Light
House is passed and soon a distant view
of Fort Anderson, Battery Buchanan and
bert Fisher is before you. The Govern.
raent work of closing up New Inlet by a
solid rock wall is in full view and proves
that even the mighty ocean can be shut
out from calm water. At tne woras
sheep head fishing is extensively indulged
in and immense strings of fish ars caught
From these works Smithville can be
.i -i . . l :
seen in tne aistauce wuu Buippiog v
anchorage in the bay. At Smithville
surficent time is given passengers to walk
through the garrison of Fort Johnson and
saunter through the town. Crabbing caa
also be indulge is and still-water bathing
by these who desire it. Fort Caswell is
the next point of interest where persons
can with safety and comfort be landed
and stand on the sea-beaten shore of the
broad Atlantic. A splendid opportunity
for surf or still water bathing is presented
at this point. The beach is level and
runs out quite a distance, offering every
inducement to lovers of the surf . The
government steam dredge Woodbury can
be been at work on the bar, also the
wrecks of several of the blockade ranners
which were beached during the. late un-
plesantness. Bald Head , with its tal Light
House, is just opposite Caswell and on the
ojean side of Caswell is the LYght (House
which is now used by mariners.
The ruins of Caswell are viewed with
int restby all excursionists. Easy en
trances yand exits can be made to the
fort and the whispering galleries. The
process of flooding the moat can also be
understood and a ramble through the
fort and over the parapets is well worth
the trip. On the beach, open to all breezes,
is being erected a pagoda, where the young
folks can indulge in tripping the light
fantastic and pater familias and stately
natrons oan enjoy the invigorating
breezes from across the waters. 'Gather
ing up the shells by the sea shore' forms
no small part of a day's enjoyment as
shells abound in ah varieties and colors.
The trip from this city to Caswell is
made in two hours and a half. Commo
dore Myers has eaused to be erected the
wharf at Caswell and has used his en
deavors to offer every comfort to the
traveling public. Hew well he has suc
ceeded can be seen daily during the arri
val and departure of the boat.
Capt. Harper is the cleverest of steam
boat captains and assiduously studies the
wants of his passengers. Everything is
djne by him which will be conducive to
the comfort and bappineas of even the
smallest child, fle is ever willing to
answer questions and point out places of
interest to his passengers. With new
and varied scenery, a fast, elegant and
comfortable boat, a polite, competent and
attentive agent and captain, rare oppor
tunities for surf bathing, etc., we thik
excursion parties would do well to visit
Wilmington rather than go to other points
where fewer inducements are offered at a
much greater cost.

MONDAY, JUNE 9,
Tbs Whiting Rifles, with a large num
ber of their friends, among whom wore
many ladies, excurted to Smithville to
day on the Pastport They have had a
beautiful day for it and the enjoymeu'
has doubtless been great. The target
sheoting took place at Smithville and we
are advised by telegraph that the prixo
was won by Mr. Pate, who scored 11.
Delafate Towers, who last Saturday
morning cut Hezekiah Atkinson, both
colored, was arrested last Saturday night
oy special officer Whitney, under a war
rant issued by Justice Scott. Whitney
personally recognized Towers for his ap
pearance, a proceeding so unusual on the
part of a consUble, that the fact has at"
tracted much attention in legal circles.
We cannot see whence the authority is
derived, especially as the assault was com
mitted with a deadly weapon. Towers,
we understand, appeared to-day and the
case was postponed until Saturday next.
