We have received the August number
of the Magazine of American History,
and it i3 replete with interesting and
nstructivo matter. Among its contents
is a paper on "Lee's Campaign against
Pope in 1862," contnbutud by Prof.
W. Allan, which is by far the ablest
and nearest correct of any of the large
number of articles which we have seen
upon .that much-talked-of but little-understood
subject. Wl He we are aware
hat the writer was mistaken in some
of the minor details of that campaign
he was entirely correct in the immense
risks taken by Lee during the days
which immediately preceded the battle
of Manassas, in the hazard in which
Jackson placed himself for a time, and
in the complete bewilderment of Pope
during the entire period. The paper
is a fine contribution to.tbe history of
those exciting days. Besides this, there
are other articles of much merit and
historic interest, which -make the num
ber one of unusual interest.
Fell from a Scaffold.
Quite a painful accident happened
to two young men this morning while
at work on a house on Mulberry street.
between ThiFd and Fourth. ; The par
ties were Messrs George New and
Robert Turney, and a board on which
they were standing on the scafiold tilt

ed some painful bruises on the back
and shoulders and Mr. Turney has a

Warsaw, N. C.
the many thriving villages
along the lino of the Wilmington &
Weldon Railroad, the town of Warsaw
seems to be ri3ine: into prominence
quite rapidly. There have been quite
a number of buildings erected there
during the past year, snd there are
seyeral others now in course of con
structiont And there is every reason
why it should continue to thrive, as it
is not only in the centre ot a rich farm
ing country, but is in the immediate
vicinity of the rich phosphate sections
of Duplin county. Added to this is the
fact that it is from that town that
the branch railroad to Clinton
will Ve built, and that, too, within a
short time. The streets are neat and
well laid out and there js a thriving
school there of which Rev. W. M.
Kennedy and his son, Mr. D. S.
Kennedy, are the principals. Miss
Beyvie Kennedy, daughter of the
former, and well known in this section
as a successful teacher," is one of thc
assistants. It is djw vacation time and
Miss Kennedy is seeking, health, re
creation and rest among the mountains
A, letter from Sheriff Taylor, of
Town Creek, in Brunswick county
conveys the gratifying information
ttat there has of late been an improve
ment in thc crops in that locality. He
siys that the rains during the past two
weeks have been light conipared with
those waich fell in the last ot June and
early in July and the crops that were
not drowned or washed away by those
earlier rains have improved and should
the weather continue favorable this
mouth the crops may all turn out two
thirds or three-fourthst
Sheriff Taylor also furnishes us with
some paaticulars as to the sad death
by lightning of Mr Edward Mercer, a
citizen of Middle Swamp in Brunswick
county. He was struck and instantly
killed in his house about 2 o'clock on
Friday last, the 1st inst. . thunder
cloud passed over the house and the
lightning struck the chimney at the
Western end of the building, demolish
ing it, and then passed though between
the upper floor and thc mantel piece in
the room on that side. Mr. Mercer was
standing at the time nar the' centre of
the lire place and when the bolt struck
he fell to the floor on his tace and did
not move afterwards. One of his sons
was sitting within a few feet of him
when -he fell and another son J Mrs.
Mercer and & daughter were all in the
house yet not one of them received any
injury. - j
-Mr. Mercer was about 62 years old,
was a good, moral, upright citizen and
had been a member of tho Methodist
Episcopal Church for many years."

Fifth Ward Democrats.
The- Fifth Ward Democratic Club
held a meeting last night, at which
there were about two hundred present,
and adopted the following resolutions,
r t v vavavi .
uesoivea, vvnne mere are many
Democrats of the Fifth Ward who are
somewhat disappointed in the selection
made at. Lumberton for Congressman
from the Sixth Senatorial District by
the Democratic Convention in not
nominating our-beloved townsman and
fellow-citizen, the Hon. A. M. Wad
dell, for Congress, yet for the sake of
the great principles involved in the ap
proaching campaign, together with the
ultimate success of the Democratic
party to National and State authority,
we, as Democrats, believe it to be our
indispensable duty to bury all personal
preferences and past indifferences, as
regards individual choice, and unite
ourselves together as a band of breth
ren, fighting shoulder to shoulder,
breast to breast, and heart to heart, in
the great cause for the good of the whole
country. We believe this to be our
duty as Democrats, and nothing less.
2d. We therefore ratify and endorse
the action of the Sixth Congressional
District Convention, in their unani
mous choice of the Hon. R. T. Bennett
as our candidate for Congressman.
His official record in tho past, as a
faithful servant of the people, com
mands the utmost confidence, and is a
sufficient guarantee of his success in
the present campaign. We, the Dem
ocrats of the Fifth Ward, will use all
honorable means in our power to se
cure the election of the distinguished
statesman and Christian gentleman,
Hon. R. T. Bennett, to the Congress ot
the United Stales of America, and we
ask all Democrats to join us.

Mb Editok; It was suggested by
one of our celebrated physicians that a
irip lo me seasuore womu De ueneuciai
to me. I immediately selected the
Rocks, where ; mine hostess, r Mrs.
Mayo, presides. Thc doctors parting
charge and direction was to eat very
lightly. WW, I did! I ate two din
ners before 4 o'clock, all of which I
touched as lightly as I could. Some
where about 8 o'clock I engaged in an
other light, but not lisht, Isuppcr. I
could not help it. Everything was so
good and so well served that II think tho
doctor would have joined me, had he
been on hand. Well, to majke a long
story short, for kindness, gdod eating,
good beds, good baths anld a good,
quiet time generally, the houJso of Mrs.
Mayo cannot be surpassed, in my hum
ble opinion. Another ycarj she, and
her good husband, expect! to extend
their domain, though none go away un
