Be Kind to Children. Blessed be the
hand which prepares a pleasure for a child,
for there is no saying where and when it

everybody remember some kind-hearted
man who showed him a kindness in the
quiet days of his childhood ? The writer of
this recollects himself at this moment as a
barefooted lad standing at the wooden fence
of a poor little garden in his native village.
With longing eyes he gazed on the flowers
which were blooming there quietly in the
brightness of a Sunday morning. The pos
sessor of the garden came forth from his lit
tle cottage. He was a woodcutter by trade,
and 3pcnt the whole week at his work in
the woods. He was coming intohis garden
to gather a flower to stick iuto his coat when
he went tq church. He saw the boy,".and
breaking off the most beautiful of his carna
tions it was streaked with red and white
gave it to birar Neither the giver nor
receiver spoke one word, and with bouaGiog
steps we ran tome ; and now, here, at a yast
distance lrom that home, after so many years,
the feeling of gratitude which agitated the
breast of that boy expresses itself on paper.
The carnation has long since withered, but
it now blooms afresh. Douglass Jerrold.
Read, on our third page, the lines from
Byron to his half sister, Mrs. Leigh, which

just at this time when Harriet Beecher
Stowe, forgetting all that is pue to herself
and to others, pollutes the literary -wortd
by the gros3 and indecent .charfgsr which
she has made against the memory pf the
great poet. These charges may, or may
not, be true but they will be looked upon
as libels by the world at large until they
are authenticated by something more than
the bare assertion of Mrs. Stowe.
Special Magistrate's Court. Yester
day the Captain and Mate of the Barque
John A. Bishop were carried before Justice
McQuigg to stand trial on the charge of
having committed, on the day previous, an
assault and battery on the person of Rich
aid Jones, a seaman on the above mentioned
vessel. The testimony given at the trial
pronounced the assault and battery a mere
affray, into which the sailor had entered,
though reluctantly ; and the "Squire" fined
the Captain one dollar, the Mate five dol
lars, and the sailor a similar amount. Each
was required to bear his portion of the
costs of the suit.

Completion of the Bridges. Yester
day, the first train was run from this city to

ticed Gen. Ransom, Capt. Jarvis, Messrs.

tractor ot Charleston Road, Bailey, Van
Bokkellen, Capt. Jones and others. The
party started in high spirits
and after a
short delay at the junction with the Char
lotte track, on laying the last rail the party
went on to the bridge.
Here we were joined by Mr. Bollman, the
contractor ana n:s irienas, tne signal was
given, and the splendid Engine, "Bridges"
j passed rapidly over the first bridge. Wo
then had two miles of track laid on trestle
work to the bridge over the North West
branch of the river which was crossed in
safety. The train then started for River
side. An amusing incident occurred on the
track. It seems that some planter had
erected a rail fence across the track. The
engineer saw it too late to stop and there
fore put on steam and scattered the feuce
rails in every direction. Some of the pas-;
sengcrs, seeing the rails, rushed for the rear
of the car with all speed, amid the laughter
ot.the rail road officials who stood fire with
the bravery of veterans. After visiting River
side, the party returned to the river where a
halt was, made to inspect the bridge, and
witness the working of the draw, : which
was indeed the perfection of mechanism.
The Wilmington Railway Bridge Compa
ny was organized in 1866. It is a separate
stock company, the stock having been sub

'. The con tract! was made in November of
that year, and the work is now done, in
spite of the most stupendous difficulties an4
unforeseen accidents. j
The bridge over the North West river
consists of one 217 foot span with a draw of
150 feet. The North East has a draw of
150 feet, one span ot 160i feet and two of
144i feet each. The frame work is of iron,
and stands on iron cylinders. The work
cost over halt a million of dollars. The
draw over the North West weighs 170 tons,;
but a boy 14 years of age opened it in the
presence of the party, with apparent ease.
The cylinder that it rests on was sunk 68
feet below the water line to find a substan
tial bottom, and in fact,' much of the trestle,
work required 60 foot piling.
Great credit is due to the officers of this!
company, for their untiring energy and de
termination, for had they but ordinary per
severance, they would have abandoned this
work in disgust.
There will be no change in the depots at
present. The Wilmington, Charlotte and
Rutherford Railroad will use their old one,
as will the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad.
We understand the Wilmington & Manches

The party returned j delighted with the
beauty and strength of the bridges, as well
as the courtesy and attention of President
Bridgers, and his worthy Superintendent,
Col. Fremont. The party returned at about
3 o'clock, with good appetites for dinner
and with the knowledge that theirs had
been the first train over? the new bridgy.

completely it is humbled, subdued and ovei
powered. It was when Job heard the voic
of the Lord out of the whirlwind that h
exclaimed. "I abhor myself, and repent i t
dust and ashes." When the "still smalL,,
voice" of God spake to the exiled prophet
in his cave, he wrapped his blushing face in
his mantle, and his whole being bowed be
fore the Divine presence and power. It was
when the evangelical prophet Isaiah saw the
glory of the Lord, and heard the six-winged
seraphim crying one to another, "Holy,
holy, holy is the Lord of hosts," that he
cried out ; "Woe is me, for I am undone."
It was after Paul had been caught up into
the third heaven that he said of himself that
he was uThe least of all the saints." And
it was the beloved dieiple whose head had
leaned on the breast of Jesus, and who had
beheld his glory in apocalyptic vision,
whose meek, childlike spirit has been the
admiration of all ages. Thus it is with ev
ery sdnt on earth, and it is so with every
glorified spirit in heaven. The higher the
soul rises in holiness, the deeper it sinks in
humility and self-abasement. So sings

how little is it valued, and how carelessly pre
