It makcs'my head so level, and so very, very flat." Oetave Feuil let's new - Urj - H?hHo mance of a Rich Young Girl," in Hearth and Home, opens capitally. The prize song, " The Kingdom ot Home," for which Mr. W. R, Duryee was paid one hundred dol lars, is, in our opinion, a poor production. The following stanza is a fair specimeu of its merit: " Flashes the lovelight, increasing the glory, Beaming from bright eyes with Warmth of the soul, Telling of trust and content the sweet story, Lifting the shadows that over us roll. King, King, crown me the King, Home is the Klngdotn and Love is the King. The Universe. The second volume of the Chicagoan commences with the title changed to The Universe, the first number of which is received. It is enlarged to a eight page sheet, and contains the commencement of a story by Mrs. Corbin, entitled, 'Mar ried, or a Woman's Deception ; a capital sto ry by Mrs. Jennie. T. Hazen, "Daisy, or the Married Man's Story and a great varie ty of other matter. Among the principal articles is one on "Spiritualism a Moral and Social Necessity," by Robert Dale Owen, and many on various phases of the "Wo man Question," and Spiritualism. Publish ed weekly, at $2 50 per year, by H. N. F Lewis, 113 Madison street, Chicago. An exchange says " Keep to the right is a common rule and easy of observance." Wc don't see it. Take a common occurrence. Three ladies we know they are ladies by their dress come tripping along " all in a row " across the pavement. A mud hole on one side, and an iron fence on the other. The mud hole won't turn out ; tne tence won't turn out, and the females who have no rights men are bound to respect," ac cording to Miss Anthony, won't turn out either. To change positions, one behind the other, and give you room to turn to the right, would not be " lady-like." How are you going to "turn to the right" under such circumstances, unless you jtake to the mud or climb the fence? We submit the case to an impartial jury ot old bachelors. Successful Men. Amos Lawrence said when asked for advice : "Young meu,basc all your actions upon a principle of right, preserve your integrity of character, and in doing this never reckon the cost," A. T Stewart, the merchant prince of New York, says: "No abilities, however splendid, can command success without intense labor and persevering application." Rothchilds as cribed success to the following rules: "Be an off-handed man ; make a bargain at once. Never have anything to do with an unlucky man or plan, Be cautious and bold." Ed. ward Everett said : "The world estimate men by their success. in life, and success is, by general consent; evidence of superiority." The Bible saysV "Seest thou a man. dili gent in business ? He stands before kings ; yea, he shall not stand before mean men." Franklin quoted and verified this. Chaiema ilAB80x.-Wamust compii ment our friend, G.L.S Mabson, for the abili ty shown in presiding at the meeting on Tuesday night, at the City Hall. The unu sually stormy elements of two contending factions were kept well In hand by the tact and skill of Mr. Mabson. His speech was forcible, to the point and evinced that earnestness each true Republican. rrust feel at the present crisis in the political affairs of the State. The logic and clearness of Mr. Hanson's statements compared with the vulgar personality of Price, Miller and other whitewashed Democrats, was noticed by all. The remarks of Chairman Mabson on taking his seat, elicited much applause, and did much to secure the victory we have noticed elsewhere. The treatment of deserting office-holders, like Mr. Miller arid the other men who defy the powers that be, met with high compliments from men Long ex perienced in managing popular assemblies. NooNDAY.p-Noon, these summer days, is almost turned into night; at least upon cots and hammocks, and divans everywhere can be found the sleeper, snoring away -as quietly as if old Sol was casting his sickening rays upon the shaved headed mandariaus of the Celestial empire, and this section of the vineyard waB yet clothed in the murky man tle of old Nox. It is a good idea, some people eay those who indulge in the habit. The early morning is hot and oppressive and unfit for that relaxation of the system required by sleep. Better to get up early, and nap before dinner. And we take this viewr as correct, as we remember some rhymer, (and poets, like newspapers, are al always correct), somewhere says : " The weary plowman's lazy length DieB in the shadow narrow, 1 That clings about ,the haystack foot ' Careless as a guarded sparrow. Ob, peaceiul hour of summer Noon ! Lite lias its midnight slumber ; Shall it have no noon-day rest for us When cares shall cease to cumber?" There was quite a sensation created on Front street, yesterday, by a very distingua and beautiful young lady, who, with the ut most moncbalance and indifference to sur roundings, walked along, holding in the dainty fingers of her left hand a rare speci men of peach, that had doubtless been left hanging upon its parent stem, Until ruby and amber had met On the cheek that lay next to the sun. With a delicately chased silver fruit knife, she dexterously removed the peeling iu one long, curling piece ; then stopping sudden ly, she actuated, doubtless, by some super stition, which had been imbibed in the nur sery, and expecting to see the initials of her lover gracefully tossed it over her head, and turning, ran to see the result. To her amazement, and to the wonder of the gap ing multitude, the peeling had formed the following letters aud figures upou the side walk : "N. C. R. & P. E. A.," which, after some difficulty, was interpreted to mean, " North Carolina Real and Personal Estate Agency, next drawing August 28th. Rooms Republican Cotjkty Committee, June 29th, 1869.

A book by General Lee will awaken such special interest, that wc arc glad to call attention to it The University Pub lishing Company of No. 4 Bond street, New Yorkannounce that they have now in press, and will issue in a few weeks, "Memoirs ot the War," by Gen.

Nathaniel Greene, bcaiitiful steel engravings of "Marion cross- Jng thePeedef,': and the "Surrender of Cornwallis';" and five original maps and plans. Our readers need not be told that this is a wjak of great interest and value. It is the standard history of military opera tions at the South during the revolutionary war, and as such is a book which every reading: man sliould possess ; but its inter est and value are both greatly increased by Gen.

STATE They are hiving " circus " in Raleigh, The Raleiglji papers notice the arrival of Judge Cantwell in that city with many flat tering remarks. A Dr. O'Hagan, of Goldsboro' in ampu tating the leg of an unfortunate taveler re ceived such injuries that he will die. The Goldsboro' Messenger mentions the transferal of Rev. Mr. Stickney from that city to Wilmington to take the place of Rev. Mr. Terry. 1 Lemonade Clubs are the latest things in Goldsboro', of which there are several. Since their formation lemons are scarce, it being impossible to obtain one in town. The Masonic festival at Goldsboro' last week was a success. $2,500 was realized, sufficient to purchase a site for a Masonic Hall,and the building of a Ball is now ful ly determined upon. ; The thirdsmall drawing of the N. C. Real and Personal Estate Agency, took place at Tucker all last Saturday, July 10th. A crowd of interested spectators were present. Ticket number 1,200 owned by a Mr. Harri son of Plymouth, N. C, drew the piano. Number 1,438 drew the top buggy. Every thing passed oft quietly and satisfactorily. The extra Velocipede quickly came out with the numbers that drew the prizes. The Wilson Plaindealer publishes jan ac count of the excursion of the Hooper school to Wilmington and Smithville ; at which latter place the correspondent states : "A huge. U. S. flag hung like a thunder cloud over the place and this, alone marred the beauty ot what was otherwise charming. On leaving, the band played with much spirit our glorious old " Dixie,' and it was " music such as would linger man's life long years " to hear the notes of that Southern air, welling up under the shadow of the tyrant's ensign." A gentleman who has just travelled through the counties of Carteret, Craven and Lenoir, informed us that the crops are in a promising condition, corn and cotton parti cularly. Cotton has recovered from the late spring, and uaw looks well. At Mosely Hall, Lenoir county, the first cotton blooms were seen on the 28th of June. Our infor mant counted more than one hundred blooms open in a space ot thirty feet diame ter in an open fHd in Lenoir county on the 8tti lust. Corn is In " tassel and silk and looks well. There is no suffering for want of rain, and everything promises that there will be a hrst Tate corn and cotton crop, Standard. Eight more money order officers tiavc been established in North Carolina viz : Concord, Warrenton County, N. C.

Wtf heard much talk of 20,000 acres of land advertised for sale by the Sheriff of Or ange, to be sold on Monday last. The Sher iff gave us the list of land to be sold. Omit ting town lots we could count only 8,658 acres. ' The rule was not completed on Mon day ; one day was not sufficient to work so much ruin. The lands we are told did not average more than one dollar and thirty cents per acre, and yet some of tho best lands of the county were sold. There is no chance under the SuerifFs hammer to get anything like the true valueof lands. Hester's Real Estate Agency and Lottery is the only place and way to get the real val ue of your lands. Wc hope Hester, in his next grand drawing, will have fewer sewing machines, and in their stead have prizes of guano, bouedust, lime, &c -Raleigh Senti nel ' We are accustomed to hear the Mexican spoken of with contempt, as wanting in in ausiry ana enugntenment ; but the Mexican girl, of whom we find an account in a Guad alajara paper, La Civilization, furnishes an example which might be well emulated by our own young women and young men of more mature age. That paper says ; "The Senorita Carlotta Ferro, who is only sixteen years of age, performs in Quintupan the following employments with the great est exactitude and punctuality, her conduct of them having been highly eulogized by the political chief of the Ninth Canton when he made an official visit to that point: She is preceptress of the school of that town, and is remarkably successful in the education of young ladies. She is clerk of the court aud secretary of the council, and is remarkable for the admi rable order in which she keeps the archives, in the collection of laws, andot all the other business in her charge. What would many men give to be equal to this young girl in the performance of such duties? It is the great conquest of civilization to place woman by the side of man, in the ele vated and respectable place which belongs equally to her." :. When we remember how voluminous are Spanish and Spanish American legal pro ceedings, and none ot them mere copies, and that their collections of laws arc mostly in manuscript, her capacities aud performances are the more remarkable, In the Tribune's London correspondence we find the following : m The London papers are considerably ob liged to Mr. Goldwin Smith for supplying them with some sort of answer to the just accusation that no one of them has printed the speech of Mr. Sumner, which all of them joined in misrepresenting. Mr. Smith's answer was better ' than none. Still it was telt to "be very weaW, so one of them has now produced a second. The speech, it says, was printed here a pamphlet ferm, ; and "widely circulated'' It is true a pam phlet edition was printed in London, but it was issued by an American, not by an En glish house. Upon seeing the, statement that it had been "widely circulated," I had the curiosity to askrMr. Stevens how many copies he had disposed ot It was publish ed at a shilling about 35 cents currency. Mr; Stevens writes me that it certainly was "widely circulated" in oncfcscnse, inasmuch as he sent a copy to nearly every town in threat Britain and Ireland where a paper is published. The country press had 165 cop ies, the London papers 20, and 310 were sold. In all, there have been circulated just five less than 5Q0 copies. Of leading articles which put into Mv. Sumner's mouth what he never dreamed -of saying, there have been who 1 knows how many millions of copies distributed ? The Pensacola Observcr says; 44 Several families of old residents and natives of this city who left here prior to the war and made Mexico their home, because of the abridge ment of their privileges as citizens by the State Legislature, returned on the "Volum ma" frpm Tampico. They arc some forty in number, and report others yet to follow,"! QUARANTINE NOTICE.
