pretty well hackled by our forces, having lost,-'

the Brooke Turnpike column to attract our whole
force, and leave the river side column to make a
dash at Belle Island, and liberate the yankee
prisoners there. They have failed in everything,
except some temporary damage to our railroads,
the burning ot some barns and mills, the seizure
of some horses, the hanging of one negro, and the

blookading vessels slipped in over the main bar,
past th"* forts ajid up t» 8mithville, from which

very strange—very strange indeed, and would at

at the same time, we cannot as yet learn.

Miss Blackburn, who was sick. Tho conse
quence was the a^rgravation of her illness. Shg

when she lay a corpse, and in order to make the
family more miserable they set fice to all the
houses adjacent to the one where lay the corpse.
They thus hoped to burn the dwelling; in this
they failed. They then set fire to the dwelling,
and when asked to aid in removing the corpse,
they only laughed. They damned the corpse
for being that of a rebel. She was a lady distin

for our cause. Thus are trealed our friends.

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHATHAM CO.
Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions, Feb’y Te»-m, 1864.
The 'olloying resolutions we'e unanimously passed
at the late Term cf Chatham f ouaty Court:
Whereas: It is due to tho memorjr of any citizen who
h^s been long and faithfullv engaged in (he service of
the pubHo and has %een called henoe while so engaged,
that some expression of the sense of hia serviees should
be given in the scene of his labors, and it is alike due
to.ourselves as to tho departed, that our appreciation of
these merits should be placed on rcoorti, to the end the
eame may be perpciuated to after-terms. Therefore
Resolved, by the Magistrates of Chatham, that they
have learned with deep sensibility and profound regret
tbat G. W. Golctston and Turner Bynum, £sqs., have
oit'pfcried this life since the last Term.of this Ceurt
That these eminent oitisens of Chatham have long been
f .''soeiated with tho public biuineAs of the rountv, the
drst as the presiding Magistrate and the seeond as as
sociate Jnstioe «f the Court That in the varioai duties of
the 'tagistrates thgr have been, laborious aad indefati

highly beaefieial te the eitixeas of the county.
Resolved, further. That the foregoing resointioma be
entered on the records of this Coart aa a tegtliaony of
their eminent pablie serviees.

of the birth of the immortal Wa.jhington, in our
late home of N'cwbcrn, now contamiuatod by the

The Foster Engine is named after General
Foster—who was once saved from death at Wil
mington by the tender nursing of one of the
kindest and most excellent ladies of JJorth Caro
lina—and who recompensed the humanity after
wards by stealing the articles of furniture out of
the iiouses of the p'(H)ple ot Newbern and bestow

of the fire Department at Newbern. On this

'I'he* Holden truck Truck' This word points
an imjuiry. V/hat Truckling has Mr. Holden
done, that his name, now while we are in dreadful
war, designates a portion of the display, in a cel
ebration of our enemies!’ How has he truckled
to our invaders, that thus he obtains at their
hands this distinguished •onsideration? And on
tho top, a “Silver-Grey Fox.” Why select
Fox to surmount the Holden Truck'' What is
there of resemblance between Mr. IJolJeu aud a
“Silver Grey-Fos?” -Wiiat of disposition, habit
or character do the yankee admirers of Mr. Hoi
den see alike in him and a “Silver-Grey Fox?’
T4*c ta nji artfut, cunniug, loWj, deceitful, mis
chievous, false, treacherous beast. Why should
tho yankees, while * thus honoring Mr. Holdcn,
thus associate him^
liut the “silver-Grey fox toas very mkeasy in
hts position” Pox as he was, he was not wMolIy
lost to all sense ot honor; all sense of shame, all
sense of danger. One or the other, or perhaps a
little^of both emotions, conspired to his uneasiness.
Well may this Fox feel uneasy. The hunters
are after him—:the woods are open—the coursers
are fleet of foot, and Newbern and North Caroli
na will not always be safe for it.
This is the first picture of the candidate for
Governor in^North Carolina, sent up for presen
tation to the' people from the columns of the
Times—Geo. Mills Joy, Yankee, Editor.
It would be a very extraordinary«man that can
thus hold the affections of both sides in a time
of deadly war—can strictly maintain the faith
vvith both—be honored by one in public celebra
tions—and elected Governor by the other.
