Said Good-Bye to Charlotte.
Walter Allbright, colored, who was ar
rested in Charlotte on Thursday last to be
sent to this ity for trial having burglar,
ized Mr. Henry Nutt's residence in this
city, some months ago, and abstracted
therefrom a gold watch and other valua
bleSj has succeeded in making his escape
from the officers of the law; and is again
at large, i
The prisoner, it seems, was confined in
the city guard house at Charlotte, as we
learn from the Observer, and during the
night cut a hole in the ceiling, through
which he crawled to freedom once more.
The subject of this notice died yester
day in this city in his room on Second,
between Princess and Chestnut streets.
He had been a sufferer for years with
organic diseases. Very little is known of
his early history. He came among us a
stranger directly after the war and died
a stranger to most of our citizens. He
was a gentleman of the old school, a
thorough linguist, but exceedingly reti
cent about matters touching upon him
self. Those who knew him best have
learned that he was a titled Hungarian
and was banished in 1848 from Hungary
about the time of the Kossuth rebellion.
His banishment was caused .by politi"
cal troubles) though the exact nature of
them are not known here. He was a man
of influence in his own home and one
whom the Governmentj of Hungary at
that time, feared. He was man of family.
In conversation with us at different times
he! has spoken of his daughters and one
son. One ef his daughters wedded a count,
and we think his son lost his life in a
When he came to this city he had some
little means and started in the manufac
ture of spirit casks. His losses were heavy
and he soon settled down to a mere
sedentary life, that of a cigar -manufacturer.
He made but few acquaintances and al
most lived tbe life of a recluse. During
his attack, of sickness he was always well
cared for and made as comfortable as pos
sible. He was buried this morning from
the First Presbyterian Church, his remains
being followed to their resting place in
Oakdalebyhis friends and acquaintances.

Fell From a Scaffolding.
Julius Waiters, a colored laborer,
while at work on a scaffolding around the
Cowan house, on Front street, fell from
his perch on Saturday evening and dislo

put on a dray' and carried to his home,
but was out this morning and walking
with the aid of a stick.
Whose Mistake is IUi
The Raleigh Observer of the 6th inst
under the heading "Executive Appoint
ments," publishes the name of Wilkes
Morri8,Esq.t of this j city as being ap
pointed a member of the Board
of Audit and Finance of the
city1 of Wilmington by His
Excellency Gov. Jarvis. We respect
fully call the attention of the Obterver,
or Governor Jarvis if the error be his,
to the fact that in section one chapter
one hundred and forty-three of the laws
of 1876f7, it is explicitly stated that
Any vacancy occurring among the mem
bers of said board during their term of
office, shall be filled by the remaining
mcmberb.'f Which law was? complied
with directly after the death of Mr. T. W.
Player, whose demise caused the vacancy
in question, by the appointment of Mr.
John S. McEachern, and which occurred
at a regular meeting of the Board of Au
dit and Finance of this city, on the 18th
of August, 1879. !
