to a signal of distress, has libelled the

fact that in putting his mate aboard the
vessel he actually saved her from going
ashore, and brought her safely into the
river at Smithville; that the mate of the
Emma Heather was not a navigator, and
at the time the Norwegian mate went
and took charge of her she was actually
heading direct for a dangerous shore and

WILMINGTON, N. C. SATURDAY, JUNE
Henry Loft in, colored, who was ar

stlgated him to enter Mr. L. Voilers'
store on Thursday night, was arraigned
before the Mayor upon the charge of he
ing accessory b fore the fact of breaking
into the store of L Voilers on Thursday
uigbt. John Green, the colored lad above
mentioned, stated undrr oath in sub
stance as follows : That Henry LcSra
'prisoner at the bar, told him to go in
to Mr. Voilers' store on Thursday night,
and conceal himself and see what he
could get and that he.Loftin, would come
down and get the goods.
Mr. H. Ueuzel, clerk for Mr. L. Voi
lers, swore that thejboy John Green, there
iu Court, was the same whom he found
concealed under some whiskey barrels eD
Tuureday night just as he was preparing
to close the store. The witness further
stated that some one entered the store on
Monday night in the same way and ab
stracted several articles.
Officer Grant, who made the arrest of
the boy John Green, testified that he saw
Loftiu and the hoy together on the night
above mentioned at a quarter pabt 8
o'clock, and afterwards saw Loft in about
9 o'clock, or shortly before that time, by
Officer Mayer testified that he accom
pained the boy on Friday to Casside's
ship yard and the boy pointed defendant
out in a crowd oi some, forty er fifty men,
when he made the arrest.
Clara Loftiu defendant s wife, testified
that her husband was home on the night
in question at hall past 7 o'clock and
remained there the balance of the night.
Henrietta Williams testified that she
saw Loftin at his house a few minutes past
8 o'clock until 9 o'clock the same night.

for the day and the court adjourned.
St. Joseph's Academy.
The young men connected with the
above named institution gave an entertain
ment at the Academy Hall last evening
at which the drasaa of "Joseph in Egypt '
was produced. As its name implies, the
plot of this drama is founded upon the
Scriptural history of Jacob and his chil
dren, familiar to all readers of the Bible.
As a literary production the drama;is of a
very high order and very effective in its
plot and surroundings. The young gentle
men last night acquitted themselves
creditably both in manner and in their
conception of the spirit of the author,
and in some passages evinced decided
histrionic ability. Considering that it
was a piece requiring the higbst order
of talent and a cultivated experience to
bring out all the beauty and force of the
composition, the young gentlemen have
every reason to ba proud of their efforts
The Italian string band furnished the
mubic for the occasion.
After the drama had been concluded
the curtain was raised and Rev. Father
Gross ascended the rostrum, accompan
ied by Col. D. K. McRae, who had kind
ly consented to deliver the prizes which
had been awardedjlo some of the most de
serving pupils. He distributed two gold
and one ailver.medals besides quite a num
ber of books to those to whom they had
respectively been awarded, and after this
pleasant daty had been performed, Col
McRae made a ahort address to the pupils
in that impressively felicitous manner tor
which he is au fait.
This closed the exercises of the evening,
and as the pleased audience retired from
the hall it would have been difficult to
tell which deserved the most credit, (he
teachers who had instructed or the pupils
who had made such good use of the in
struction given them.
The National Bell Telephone
We are informed by Gen. Taylor, the
State Agent for the above company, that
he has commenced work in getting up the
poles for the fire alarm, and for parties
connected with the Exchange. Mr.
James M Ormes, the General Agent "for
the South, spent yesterday with GeiA
Taylor, and made all the necessary ar
rangements for prosecuting the work v
orously. Mr R B Wood, the
tor forpoies, commenced work:
log putting up the po es.
This company are usiug poles alone in
connection wkhtrhe fire alarm, because in
the event of a fire and if the wires were
on the building the connection would be
broken, and an accident is more easiu,
avoided by putting the fire alarm up with
poles. The instruments are here and the
wires and instruments for the Merchant's
Exchange have been shipped. m
Musical Entertainment at Rocky
Through the courtesy of a friend who
was present, we learn that the good citi
zens of Rocky Po nt.were entertained aLd
delighted with a fiue musical feast, last
evening, (the 27th inst ) under the direct
tion of Miss Innie Durham, the accom
plished musician and teacher of the Acad
emy in that pleasant little village. The
music was both vocal and instrumental,
and was rendered by pupils v. ho have
been educated under Miss Durham's tute
lage. The hall was filled to overflowing,
and all were pleased at the excellent
manner in which the young'performers ac
quitted themselves. We regret that space
and press of matter will permit us to
specify but a few of those who contribu
ted to the interest and pleasure of the
oxasion. All were worthy of the high
Tne "Ostrich Wal z," a duet for the
piano, by Misses Annie and Minnie West
brook, two young sisters aged 8 and 6
respectively, was very finely rendered,
the tender ace of the
performers, tvas a phenomenal effort.
"Tis Evening Brings My Heart to
Thee," song, by Mis Owa Durham, was
sung in correct style with a well mod
ulated voice which reflected much credit
upon the fair songstress.
"Maggie Schottische, ' a duet, rendered
by Miss Innie Durham, the teacher, and
Miss Maggie Westbrook, was particularly
admired and received many and deserved
"When the Tide Comes In," song, by
Miss Laura Branch, was sweetly and
purely given in a charming voice and
received the heartfelt approval of delight"
There were other pieces, both vocal and
instrumental, which we would gladly
mention did space permit.
At the conclusion of the musical exer
cises, Mr. Thomas J. Armstrong, the
Representative from Pender, was called
upon, and in response to the call; made a
brief and appropriate address, in which
he paid just and deserv ed compliments
to these who had contributed so much to
the pleasure of the occasion It was in
its entirety a season of delight and one to
be long and pleasantly remembered, both
by participants and listeners.
flow to Keep Ice in the Sick. Room.
For those whohavean abundant sup
ply of ice this may not be a matter of
much moment, but for poor people, who
may rarely use ice exeept in sickness, and
to whom the expense is not insignificant,
the following hints from an English
source may be useful: "Cut a piece of
flannel about nine inches square, and
secure it by a ligature round the mouth
of an ordinary tumbler, so as to leave a
cup shaped depression of flannel within
the tumbler to about half its depths. In
the flan oel cup so constructed a piece of
ice may be preserved many hours; all the
longer if a piece of flauuel from four to
five inches square be used as a loose cov
er to the ice cup. Cheap flannel, with
comparatively open mesh s, Is prefer
able.aa the water easily drains through it,
and the ice is thus kept dry. When
good flannel, with close texture, is em
ployed, a small hole must be made at the
bottom of the flannel cup; otherwise it
holds the water and facilitates the melt
ing of the ice, wh eh is, nevertheless, pre
served much longer than in the naked
cup or tumbler. In a tumbler contain
ing a flannel cup, made as above dot
cnbed of cheap, open flannel, at 20 cents

to dissolve two ounces of ice, wherea in

Day of a sum of money. His examina
tion was had this morning before U.; S.
Commissioner McQuigg and resulted in a
full and honorable acquittal, there not
having been a particle of evidence adduced
that would sustain the charge. The cate
excited much interest and many of Mr
Harriss' personal fritndsand aquaintances
were present. The only evidence against
Mr. Harriss was that he had been seen in
the Post Office lobby on the day of the
robbery. On the contrary, several
prominent gentlemen appeared on the
stand ard testified to . Mr.
Harris' character both as man and
boy and not one of them had ever heard
a whisper against its honesty. Further
more it was proven that the glass in the
stamp window, through which the
robbery is said to have been
effected, was broken between 1 and
1:15 o'clock, P. M., while Mr. Harriss

was not broken from the lobby but from
the interior of the office. Experts were
called and testified to this fact. Tne only
theory, then, to account for the robbery
is that it was done from the interior. Let
it be understood that we do not mean
that it was the work of any of the em
ployes but k is not at all improbable that
some sneak thief hid somewhere in the
interior office and was locked up there
and that be effected the job by climbing
over the wire division into tm stamp
There is much feeling manifested in
this communityat the indignity offered
to Mr. Harriss. His arrest, without a
scintilla of evidence to sustain it, was, ..a
gross outrage and as such we feel no
hesitation iu characterizing it as it de
serves. We must not neglect to state that Mr.
Marsden Bellamy, was the counsel for Mr.
Harriss and that he conducted the de
fense in an able, masterly manner, and
much to the satisfaction and gratification
of those whose feelings of sympathy and
interest had drawn them to the Court
