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 and precepitated them to the ground. a distance ot 18 feet. Mr. New receiv ed some painful bruises on the back and shoulders and Mr. Turney has a long gash on the head which, fortunate ly, does not penetrate the skull. Both of the young men will be laid bp sever al days from the effects. Warsaw, N. C. Among 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 of Virginia. From Brunswick. 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."

Jarvis, on the 8 35 train, which arrived on time. On the arrival of the train the Governor was met by Mayor Hall, Col. F. W. Kerchner and Mr. P.

The- Fifth Ward Democratic Club held a meeting last night, at which there were about two hundred present, and adopted the following resolutions, viz: 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. List of Letters.

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 served now. One Week. THE MAULS.!
