Felled Trees Transplanting and so

counted as many as forty ne pine trees
blown down by the Btorm on the Mars

ot only three fourths of a mile. He said
there were more fallen trees but his pa

New Postal Decision.
There being considerable misapprehen
slon as to what constitutes third-class
matter in the mails, the postoffice author
ities have issued a circular to postmasters
stating that in order that the matter may
betmore fully understood, the department
would indicate the following as among tbe
documents of insurance compaaies which,
when partly, printed and partly written,
are admissible to the mails as third-class
matter : A policy unsigned, or behg
signed by a local ageat, Is transmitted by
him to the home office for additional sig
natures ; special surveys, when unaccom
panied by written memoranda in the na
turt of personal correspondence ; canceled
policies, when unaccompanied by receipts;
renewal policies,! when unaccompanied by
new notes. The following are regarded,
however, as in the nature of personal cor
respondence, and hence subject to first
class rates of postage ; A policy signed
and duly executed ; daily reports ; notices
ef premium due ; assignments ; promiaso
ry notes attached to policies or unattach
ed ; applications ; receipts of ether kin
dred matter. The same rule will apply to
other printed commercial papers, such as
drafts, checks, etc., and to deeds, bonds,
&c, whether drawn by public functioaa
ries or private parties. A partly printed
bill filled out in writing may be sent as
third class matter, but when receipted can
only be admitted to tbe mails at letter
rates of postage.
At Point Caswell.
Capt. Dick Paddison, of he steamer
Uis, who arrived here to-day, ways that the
sunn of Sunday night was very severe at
Point Caswell. The wind blew to a fear.
ful extent, and the crops aie i severely in
jured. Fortunately, there were no serious
damages, other than those to the crops.
In the city.
We were pleased to receive a call to
day from Capt. John T. Patrick, of the
Wadesboro Herald, who came down to
the city j to day with the intention of
zoing on . to attend the meeting of tbe
Press Convention. Bro. Patrick talks o
good crops in his section, and says that
the people of Wadesboro look forward to
the Fall trade with hepeful anticipatioas.
Mr. J. D Clark, whe has been! ordered

the Signal Service, who is ordered for
duty at the ofiice in Smithville, arrived
last night and went down on the Pass
port this morning.
j We are happy a state that we have
heard ef no serious disasters in this neigh
borhood by the storm, and none of any
consequence in addition o those rtported
by us yesterday. There was very little
wind, altheugh a plenty of rain, at
Fayetteville. The crops in this sectlen
are said to be very much damaged by tin
wind, and it is feared that the numerous
rains which have fallen will prove still
further disastrous to the cotton crop.

Ob a Rampage.
The old Cape Fear Is rising rapidly.
When the steamers left Fayetteville yes
terday morning it had risen very little,
but last evening a dispatch was received
here saying that it had risen ten feet du
ring the day and that it was then swelling
very rapidly. Fears are entertained for
the fate ef the fine corn crop along the
river in Bladen county, but as there is no
actual knowledge as to the amount of
rain which has fallen in I the interier
these fears have not as yet taken definite
shape. It will require from 35 to 45 feet
of water, over and above what there was
yesterday morning, to affeet these crops,
and as we already have ten feet ot this,
from 25 to 35 feet more must come
before theae crops may be considered as
in actual, serious danger.

KkYiicw, as driven ashore dr -ing the re cent
gale. Mr. E. Vichau, Vice President
of the Chamber, of Comoerce made a tiip
in the steam tug Blanche yesterday to
look after the Germam barque Marie, re
ported dismasted and anhorej between the
Rip and the Bar. On ! arriving at Smith
ville, however, it was found that the
Blanche cou'd not reach the Marie. But
nothing danted, Mr. Peschau, who is tbe
consignee of the vessel in distress, procured
a sail boat and although the waves were
running pretty high at the time: suc
ceeded, with the assistance of the Captain
of the Marie and one or two ethers, in
boarding the vessel, when they discovered
that there was thirteen feet of water la the
hold. It is thought, though, that as soon
as the cargo is all removed, the barque can
be safely tewed ofTand up to the ilty when
she will undergo repairs.

Sergeant Walson, of the Signal Service
informs us thatjthe wires are down in sev
eral places, both between here and Smith
ville and between here and Sloop Point,so
that it is impossible to cammunicate with
either place by means of the telegraph.
Men are busily engaged in removing the
fallen trees, which were tbe cause of the
downfall of the wire, and it is hoped that

Some very decided; apprehensions are
felt here as to the safety of Mr. John T.
Flowers, a gentleman! well known to many
in this city. Seme time ago he purchased
the little schooner-rigged yacht Arietta,
which it will be remembered was j built
a few years ago for some young men at
Messrs. Hart,1 Bailey & Co's. machine
shops. Mr. Flowers had made arrange
ments to run her between Topsail and
this city, regularly during the winter
season, and he was on his first trip out
during the recent storm. When last seen
which was on ast Sunday evening, at 5
o'clock, he was heading for the Swash,
and it is j feared that be was caught out in
the storm on Sunday night and was
P. S. Since tbe above was written we
learn that the Arietta has been discovered
by the aid of glasses high and dry on
Bald Head marsh. Nothing has been seen
pr heard of Mr. Flowers, but it is thought
that he is safsj
A Complete Barrier.
We are glad to learn from Hon. A, H.
VanBokkelen, President of the Chamber
of Commerce, who made a visit yesterday
to the sea wall in course of construction
at New Inlet, in order to ascertain if any
damage had been done by the violence o
the storm of Sunday night and Monday
morning to the works there, that the break
water makes a complete barrier, the im"
preguab5!ity of which was tested in the
storm without damaging effect.
The gale, which was one of the most
severe ever experienced on our coast,
dashed the waters of the Cape Fear
against the the westerly face of the wall
with fearful violence! but they were
successfully resisted and turned away to
find their legitimate exit to the ocean by
the main channel. The force of tbe waves
was so great j that on the westerly or
windward side of the wall tho water
and eight inches
was apon the easterly
or leeward side ; the iorce of the wind
sweeping the latter to the ocean without
resistance, while the former was held in
check by the resisting power of the wall
and finally turned ofl threugh the main
channel, as we have indicated. There
seems now no reason to doubt the actual
impregnability of the work, as the storm
which it has so succejsfully withstood
was one such as is seldom equalled on this
coast, ' '
It is also pleasant to note in this con
nection that the "Swash," concerning
which se many fears have been expressed,
as tending to neutralize and make incom
plete the efforts to improve the entrance to
the river, is rapidly: filling up, so that no
difficulty may be apprehended from that
source. Mr. VrntsoKxeien states tnat
since his laitlsit on the Ud of last July
there has been a very decided and marked
change for the better in the filling up
this inconsiderable channel.
