Dialogues, declamations and recitations, formed the evening programme ; and the pupils showed a thorough acquaintance with the branches they had studied, and evinced in the; cause of ed ucation a zeal that promised! well for their; future. We cannot bestow; on Miss Bradley too much praise tor the good she has effected in our community ; and the progress made by her scholars is the gratifying result of her labor?, and entitles her to the thanks of many paf rents. Do Not PoivDER. There is an offence committed by day exhibited brunette beauties, and every bn our streets for .public in spection, and nb doubt, in the hope 1 of an approval which, we rejoice to say, is usually withheld. It consists in smearing the dark skin with a white powder, so that the net results is black hair and eyes with a pale mealy white-complexion a combination foreign to nature and ruinous to beauty. It is cause of sincere regret to; see the rage for blonde thus obliterating that more fascinat ing order of beauty, the brunette. An olive complection, soitar from being something to be concealed and denied, is the only proper complement of coal-blacK eyes and jetty hair, and, at least so long as blonde men have place in the world, will not lack for admirers. ' ivh en the roso of health shines through the oliva akin, the result im a glow ood weaitij ot color tnat tne i xaiater hues of the blonde can never rival. To obscure and veil this richest of flesh tints with a sickly white powder i3 more than offence against taste it is a sin and a shame lor beauty is really a posession which even the owner has not a right to mar or destroy it is a public gpod and benefaction one ot those gifts which make life a garden in stead of a desert. ; Isn't it queer that a majority of mankind are engaged in minding everybody else's business, and in jsomc cases to the neglect of their own. Aw oman s gossip one of her can be en "inalienable dured, tor it is rights," besides it is quite necessary in a reg- ulur "tea fight," at the muffins, or the bis- cuit. But the male gossip is abominable. Listen to him : Does a person move into a large house ? instantly his business neighbors begin to wonder it he can afford it, implying ot course, by the, question, that he cannot. Does another buy a horse ? there are omin ous shakes cf the head, and sage remarks, in whispers about spendthrifts. JJoes a third beautify his store, or enlarge hia stock? dark hints arc heard respecting people who go too fast, and who are certain always to end, in ruin. A fourth has made a fojtune. As people cannot now abuse him tor spend ing money, they say he ha3 grown haughty so that, unless he is twice as affable as be fore, he is sneered at for being "purse proud." A fifth) a sixth, a seventh, and so on endlessly, has some other pretended fault, over which his acquaintances talk be hind his back, oi; hint, winking yith great cunning as they smoke their cigari. i Sensible people: find their own afiaira about as much a$ they can attend to prop erly. Depend upon it, he who is always minding the business of other persons, is very apt to neglebt his own, till it gets into 1 a hopeless tanglct And he who is always mending other people's characters and hab its, would find it to his own. more profitable to attend Rooms Republican County Commit -tee,; June 29th, 1869.

The following letters have been sent to this office for publication. They explain them selves, and all we ask of our readers is to recollect that the man who presumes to ask their suffrages for the honorable position of representative in the Legislature for the honest voters of New Hanover, has been sailing nnder false colors, and has no stand ing in that great army ot heroes who saved the republic in our second revolution. The assertion made by Captain Larkins that he served in the " Fourth Maryland Cavalry " is met by the statement of the- Adjutant General ot the State that there teas no nuch regiment. Likewise, that under an assumed name Mr, Larkius served the land he loves to " beat" on is met by theact that his name is not borne on any muster roll : , State of Maryland, Adjutant General's Office, Annapolis, June 25, 1809.
