Mr. Eagles is well known in our commu

Mr. Price states in the " bolter's journal"
that he was " elevated" by suffrages. He
means he was "i elevated" by whiskey when
he permitted himself to sign the trashy
Larkinsy diatribe published in the Star as

Capture of an Escaped Jail Prisoner.
Constable Carr captured William Wash

He escaped before trial, ana has been at

A Shell Road to Wrightsville. A
joint stock company is being organized in
our city for the purpose of constructing a
shell road to Wrightsville Sound. It is
calculated that $15,000 will be required for
the enterprise, $8,000 of which has been
already subscribed. The par value of the
shares is $100. The road, if built, will be
constructed in an air line via Ann or Nun
street, from Front; and terminating some
where in the vicinity of Mr. C. C. Morse's
We trust that this enterprise will succeed,
and think it will pay. There would be
quite enough driving on such a road to af
ford income sufficient for a handsome divi

Market Day. Saturday is a sort of
" market day" all over the world, and the
songs and stories founded on the meeting of
rustics on these happy occasions would
make many volumes. Yesterday was a sort
of melon " market day" and the numbers of
watermelons devoured by thirsty and melon
loving individuals was something fearful to
contemplate. For ourselves we care little
for the huge watery article so cherished by
the laboring population, and the tempta
tion of all youngsters who ever lived in the
country. : Acquaintance with our Northern
markets makes us long for the sweet crisp
high flavored " nutmeg melons or "eante
lopes" as they are called. In hopes of seeing
some of these we will rest until another
" market day" draws us from our sanctum ;
when we hope some of our gardeners will
gladden our editorial eyes with a melon fit
to charm away the blues, and at prices all
can reach ri editors.

No young lady can be too well instructed
in anything which will affect the comfort of
a family. Whatever position in society sho
occupies, she needs a practical knowledge
of household duties. She may be placed in
eucIi circumstances that it will not be nec
essary for her to perform much domestic
labor ; but on this account she needs no less
knowledge than if she was obliged to pre
side personally over the cooking stove and
pantry. Indeed I have thought that it is
more difficult to direct others, and requires
more experience than to do the same work
with their own hands.
Mothers are frequently so nico and par
ticular that they: do not like to give up any
part of the care of their children. This is a
great mistake in their management, for they
are often burdened with labor and need re
lief. Children should be early taught to
make themselves useful; to assist their
parents every way in their power, and to
consider it a privilege to do so.
A Puzzle. Here is a question for youhg
arithmeticians, and others, who like to crack
an arithmetical nut now and then, to try
their wits upon :
Two Arabs sat down to dinner and were
accosted by a stranger, who requested to
join their party, saying "that as he could not
get provisions to buy in that part of the
country, if they would admit him to eat only
an equal share with themselves, he would
willingly pay them for the whole." The
frugal meal consisted of eight small loaves
of bread, five of which belonged to one of
the Arabs, and three to the other. The
stranger having eaten a third part, and each
of the two Arabs a third part of the eight
loaves, arose and laid before them eight pie
ces of money, saying : "My friends, there is
what I promised you ; divide it between you
according so your just rights." A dispute,
of course, arose respecting a division of the
money ; but reference being made to the
cadi, he adjudgel seven pieces of the mon
ey to the owner of the five loaves, and only
one piece to him who had owned the three
loaves. Yet the cadi decided justly.
Cut this out. The following are excel
lent rules for young men commencing busi
The world estimates men by their success
in life, and, by general consent, success is
evidence of superiority.
Under no circumstances, assume any re
sponsibility you can avoid consistently with
your duty to yourself and others.
Base all your actions upon a principle of
right ; preserve your integrity of character,
and never count the cost.
Self-interest is more likely to warp your
judgment than all other circumstances com

your interest is concerned.
Never make money at the expense of your
Be neither lavish nor niggardly. Of the

Let your expenses leave a balance in your

Keep clear of lawsuits. If you gain your
cause, you generally lose money.
Avoid borrowing and lending.
Wine and tobacco impair health, mind

Stormy Times Ahead. Our scientific
correspondent communicates the following :
We have now entered a season which there
is reason to believe will be marked by ex
traordinary storms of rain, wind and elec
trical phenomena, the most certain periods
being about the second Sunday in the months
of July and August next, and the first Sun
day in September and October next. There
will be intermediate storms of less severity
about the time of or just after full moon in
each of those months. The conditions pre
vailing at the time specified are not unusu
al or extraordinary in their character, but
are periodical and unfailing. The . storms
anticipated arc such as usually prove very
destructive to canals and railroads, and
sweep away bridges, etc. It we can prej-cal-culate
such events some of the perils of such
storms may be averted, by careful prepara
tions to meet them. A few weeks will suf
fice to test the truth of these predictions.
The storms here referred to are not local,
but general ones, prevailing over a large
space of territory at or nearly the same
periods ot timej On the seventh of August
ext there will be a total eclipse of the sun,
and, according. o the statement of an Eng
lish astronomef, a comet is now visible.
What effect these circumstances will Jiave
upon the weather lam not prepared to say,
but have reason to believe the tendencyj will
be to increase the severity of the weather.

against the reference and in favor of the

rights of men should be made friends of the

Mr. Hudgins asked if he would still iave
his rights if Seymour and Blair had been
Mr. Price said he knew he had his rights,
and could not be deprived of them.
Mr. J ustice of Rutherford would do all in
his power to secure the removal of the disa

good faith, but; when men called this a
bogus government, a bogus Legislature,' and

bogus Governor, and the

unconstitutional body, he would rather his
tongue would cling to the roof of his mouth
than vote for the .removal of their disabilities-

they were sorry fjr what they had done;
but he would ask them to recognize the

Agency. We learn that this company is in
a flourishing condition, and that it has gain
ed the confidence and well wishes of tho"

fact that it has had offered to it over $300,
000 ot real estate to be disposed of by the
lottery plan. Many of the owners of ithe
property thus offered are of tho best and
oldest families in the State men whoso
character for honesty and enterprise arc
widely known. The large amount of prop
erty thus offered to the company proves to
what an extent it possesses the confidence
of the business men of the State, and how
admirable is its plan of disposing of prop
erty. By it real and personal estate which

TnE Resignation of Sheriffs.- Wc un
derstand that several of the Sheriffs in this
section of the State are seriously consider
ing the propriety of resigning their offices
before commencing upon the collection of
the recently assessed taxes, owing to the
fact that it wil1 be a matter of impossibility
for these officers to comply with the require
ments of the law in the matter, the ingeni
ous law makers in the I late sitting of the
Legislature having enacted a law imposing
a heavy fine and imprisonment upon both
the Sheriffs and their deputies should they
fail in a complete return of these taxes by
the first of December. This law leaves no
means of escape, and yet, if we understand
it aright, it places them somewhat in this
predicament : the fall term of the Superior
Coiirt for this section will be held during
the months of October and November, there
are certain taxes which, to be made, requires
an order of the Court, some week or more
must elapse before the property is properly
advertised,; and thirty days' notice is re
quired, carrying the matter over intothe
middle or the last of December before tb.c
taxes can be made by law and yet the.
Sheriff is required to make a return of them
to the State department by thef.rsi of 1)6
cembcr, or Jay himself liable to the fine and
imprisonment ordered in the case.
