fi propose to publish in the
town of Tarboro, Edgecombe
County, N. C a weekly paper, enti
M. EDWARD MANNING,
And printed byJ.fylV Manning.
(We have adopted for the title of
the paper; Scxvola, in honor ef
Mucins Scxvola of ancient Rome,
who was willing to lay down his life
as a sacrifice for Republicanism, and
did burn and torture the hand in fire,
that missed Porsenna the invader of
their Rights.) According to custom
we proceed to lay before the publick
an analysis upon which this paper
will be conducted. Its col nmii'i will
be devoted to Politics, Commerce,
Agriculture, Internal Improvements,
Mechanics, Medicine, Literature, and
Science in general. It cannot fail of
b'eing useful to the Politician, the
Merchant, the Farmer, the Me
chanic, the Physician, and Literary
mtn who dislike to trouble them
selves (entirely; with the plenitude
of political strife. We are resolved
to exert every nerve of our sensori-
um to rendtr it useful and pleasing to
the lauics; who, etuna-ltke are
the arbitresses of the world. The
principles of Democracy (the watch
nwer of liberty,) will be defended
with every talent we are master of.
The administration of Martin Van
Huren, and R. M. Johnson; will be
supported, and its Jackson-like course
advocated with sanguine fervency.
All the most important and interest
ing proceedings of Congress, and the
State Legislature, will be reported.
Wc shall endeavor to obtain the la
test commercial news from the
North, and lay before our patn ns
with despatch. UV intend to avail
ourselves of the advantage of the
best publications on the subjects of
internal improvement, and agricul
ture, and by that means will be able
to select a number of essays, which
cannot fail, of being useful to all who
have the prosperity of their country
We will procure all important and
necessary information in Medicine,
within our sphere, of country and
hospital cases, and give their patho
logy and trtatment publicity. A
portion of the Scxvola will general
ly be devoted to anecdotes, and polite
literature; and whiggery blown sky
high. Knowing the necessity of the
publication of a truly democratic pe
riodical in the town of Tarboro', we
call on the good; people of Edge
combe and adjoining counties, ami
the inhabitants of the U S. to patron
ise and sustain us in cat t ying out the
principles of Democracy.

Cash ! Cash ! for this we striveJc toil,
From morning until night.
Some plough the sea & some the soil,
Some practice Coke & others Hoyle;
On politics some writei
And all who wish to cut a dash
Must have their pockets crammed
I offer you my service sir,
And my good wishes, too
Pray how much are you worth a year?
Your pocket is too short, 1 fear,'
To help iny projects through:
If so, your service is but trash;
But I'm your man if you have Cash.
Behold those interesting girls,
VVho smile divinely sweet
Quite good enough for lords or earls;
W hose snowy teeth and raven curls
Are very hard to beat
Indeed the sweetest girls on earth
Pray tell me how much Cash they're
And love is bargain'd for and sold
By rules precise aud narrow:
Changed from the god he was of old.
His quiver is of burnish'd gold,
And silver every arrow
And now whene'er he bends his bow,
He's apt to lay a fortune low.
For Cash we sail the ocean o'er.
And many a distant sea
The want of Cash condemns the poor,
And Cash unbars the prison door,
And sets the captive free
Stronger than learning of the schools,
The destiny of earth, Cash rules.
Without it, man but badly fares
In all terrestrial things;
And when awhile he bravely bears
Life's tempest, and its load of cares,
And writhes beneath its strife
Down to where Cash exerts no power,
He sinks like a neglected flower.
To be read aright.

From the Cumberland Advocate.
It is currently rumored about
Cumberland, that a most diaboli
cal murder was recently commit
ted sonrewhere not far from Rains
burg, Bedford county, Pa. Kut
as the Bedford papers are silent
upon the subject, there is room to
doubt its correctness. The story
A gentleman from the West on
his way to Philadelphia, with
drove of horses, put up for ihe
nigbt at a certain house (name not
inown and stayed till morning.
Heivas treated with respect and
attention, and informed the land
lord that on his return he would
again stop with him. According
to nromise. about three weeks
since the stranger returned and
asked for lodgings but was refu
sed! The excuse alleged was,
that there was sickness in the fam
ily. He was recommended by
the landlord to go on to the next
house, situate about a mile dis
tant. The stranger did so. He
requested lodgings for the night,
and at first was refused. He was
informed that the man of the house
was absent, and that there were
none but females about the house,
(being two daughters.) But up
on insisting they at length con
sented. Shortly after there were
three girls from a neighboring
house arrived, and concluded to
stay for company that night with
the two daughters of the absent
landlord. On retiring to bed it
appears that the stranger was
shown a room up stairs and ow:
of the strange girls and one of the
daughters occupied the absent fa
ther's room down stairs, and the
other three girls another room up
Thus situated and wrapt in
.leep, at a late hour in the night
the house was entered by three
men. They entered the room of
the two young women down stairs
and murdered them bv cuttinn-
their throats! Thev then nro-
ceeded tip stairs to the room of
the stranger supposing they had
killed the two daughters of the
absent parent but were met in a
manner they little expected. The ,
stranger had been awakened bv
the noise down stairs, and stood S
prepared to meet the assassins.
They came to the door, which he
immediately opened and shot
down the foremost mau. The
second then fired at the stranger
but missed his aim, and was im-rr
mediately shot down himself. The '
third then approached, but seeing ,
the fate of the two first w as dispo-
sed to retire, but the bold stranger
followed him and with one or two
blows inflicted with a small sword,
lie brought him in the. rt
The stranger then procured
light called for the girls aud
proceeded to examine what mis
chief had been done. He found
the three girls who slept upstairs
safe and sound; but those two who
slept on the lower floor with their
throats cut from ear to ear. Up
on examining the bodies of the
murderers, it was ascertained that
they consisted of the Father and
two sons! landlords of the house
at which he was refused lodg
ings. It is thought that the murderers
object was gain that they inten
ded killing the girls aud stranger,
take what they wanted aud then
set fire to and burn the house and
the dead bodies.
Nosology. Dr. J. Mason War
ren, of Boston, is mentioned in
the papers ol that city as having
performed a feat in the business of
nose making, which will probably
bring his services into great re
quest among that portion of our
fellow citizens who have sustained
damages in that rather important
feature of "facial landscape." Dr.
Warren does not pursue the Tali
cotian mode of repairing the han
dles of people's countenances, but
he puts on a man's nose with sin
gular "neatness and despatch,"
nevertheless; and according to the
Boston account of the matter, we
are not very certain but it would
be well enough to employ the
Doctor to make new noses for peo
ple who happen to have ugly por
ticos to the olfactory regions.
Ladies with "two pretty black
eyes" who are fobbed off by mad
ame nature with nothing better
than a pug nose, will, of course,
employ him to fabricate a more
becoming receptacle for rappee, in
their declining years, and young
fellows who are provided with a
protuberance little more symmet
rical than a warped shingle, ought
by all means, to patronize the
professor of nosological manipula
tion. Whether Dr. Warren trims
down noses happening to have too
much amplitude, is a matter not
touched upon in the Boston ac
count to which we allude, but by
that same account it is as clear as
amber that he makes a new nose in
cases where the necessary smelling
machine has been demolished by
an accident; for a young man
who happened lo have his facial
outworks "druv in," as Hackett
has it of the dog's tail, employed
the doctor lately to remedy the
disaster, and if we are to credit
the newspaper account of the af
fair, the unfortunate sufferer by
the dereliction is actually better
off than before. He has been
provided by Dr. Warren with a
nose not only equal to all the calls
made upon that organ, but really
tn improvement upon the original
proboscis. We of course congra
tulate the patient and recommend
