Edgecombe Superior Court.
Tii Fall Term of this Court commen
ted its session in this place on Monday last
and cloed on the succeeding Thursday
Judge Caldiccll presiding.
The only matter of especial interest Was
the case of tho State vs. Harry Lane, which
has been so long suspended between this i
and the Supreme Tribunal of the State,
and which came up for final adjudication.
The piisoner was brought to the bar on
Tuesday, when upon the reading of the
mandamus of the Supreme Court, direct
ing the Court below to proceed to judg
ment, the Judge proceeded to pronounce
the sentence of the law. that he should be

The address of His Honor was brief bul
pertinent, and delivered with great emo

This is the third Court which His Hon
tr had held since his elevation to the
t Bench, and we are happy to say that his
courtesy and urbanity gave unusual satisfaction.
. (JOur readers may perhaps recollect,
that Barney Mitchell, suspected of having
recently committed murder in Louisiana,
after being anested in Martin county in
this State, made his escape from jail. The
Sheriff of Martin, with a praiseworthy
zeal, pursued him and we understand has
arrested him in Georgia, and tarried him
on to Louisiana for trial.
(JIn our lecent account of the discus
sion at this place between Messrs. Toole
and Harriss, we stated that Mr. Harriss had
, proposed a bet. Mr. Harriss contends this
is a misrepsesentation of him. Now, as
. toe design no injustice to him or any one
else, we will allow him to ppeak in lii.s
own words, and let the public judge. The
fu'.iuh i g is Mr. Harriss's own account of
lite ma iter, written out too after he had de
liberated on it and seen our comments.

Now, we leave it to the public to say,
with. all this explanation, if there is any
misrepresentation on our part. With all
his circuitous mode of expression and ex
planation it all amounts plainly lo this.
He proposes a stake or wager of $100 to
be lost or won according as his or Mr. T's
statement is correct, which is certainly a
bet. No matter how ihe money when
won is to be applied, the fact that it is
applied to some charitable purpose, does
not alter the character of the proposition.
It is a wager, where one or the other loses
; When Mr. Stanly made his famous bet
here, we understood him to say by way of
relieving himself of the odium of the bet,
that if he won he would appropriate it to
dme charitable purpose. Yet we hate al
ways understood he transferred the bet to
this same Mr. Harriss, who received the
full benefit of it.
We are told that "charity covereth a
multitude of sins" and now it has to cov
er all these Whig bets.
The public will understand this matter,
and decide if it was not a proposition to
bet, notwithstanding he disclaimed it in
The Globe contains from the able pen
of the Hon. Wm. H. Haywood, a full and
satisfactory vindication of Ezekiel Polk,
the grandfather of Col. Polk, from the
charge of tory ism. A charge which has
been maliciously circulated against a de
ceased patriot of North Carolina, to affect
the growing and mighty popularity of One
of his descendants', whose fidelity, patriot
ism and devotion to his country, are be
yond even the attempts of paity malignity.
-This vindication by Mr. Haywood is
free from the taint of pirty feeling, offends
none, and rescues the reputation of a depar
ted pa'riot of his own native Sule from a
charge inflicting a stigma alike on his family
& his native State. Surely in such an effort
Mr. Haywood should be seconded by eve

It is the pride of every State t cherish
the reputation of such of her eitiz -ns as
distinguish themselves by tlvMr t dents or
devotion to the country. And more i spe
iciallv are we taught from our cradle to ex

iivini birth to an Arnold or a tvirr, vet
we find some of our own citizens engaged
in the unfilial attempt to prove to ihe
world that one of our distinguished Revo
lutionary soldiers was a lory. Can any
thing good grow out of such an ungrateful
act? Can any political party that seeks its
ends through such base means p:o?pei?
Can any State which encourages such slan
ders on her best character?, or such calum
niators, ever expect to thrive?

with her own citizens. The honor or
shame of the individual reflect on the

Under this testimony, o fortunately

now distinguished ac'ors in public life; and
'tis an attack on his native State, from
which he has every right to expect a vin

To the Editor of the Pit-.:
Of the way things ure managed at these
watering places, I care not to enter into
minute detail; 'twould be tiresome and un
interesting, hoides calling down upon the
writer the anathemas of the different pro
prietors. A word or two of tho different
places I've visited will be sufficient.
Upon your arrival at the W hitu Sulphur,
you are shown lo a parlor, where the Su
perintendent waits on you, and asks you

shoulders your trunk and you follow him
to the cabin you are to occupy. You cither

the White Sulohur, the reputation of bad
fare and vyorse cooking. In crowded limes
'tis di Ipcult to get ajuantuin sujf. with

feelings of a gentleman; but should you
succeed in making out a dinner, ten to one
you do not suffer from having a stomach

The Hot. There is no great effort on
the part of the managers at this establish
ment to please, particularly on the arrival
of visiters. Dr. Goode is too high, toned

his superintendents seem to have caught
some of his spirit. With pleasure 1 allue

of the servants; but am sorrv to hiul tault

which I look upon as ridiculous extortions
upon the public. At the White you are
charged for the water only, here you pay
$510 per week for board, 50 cts. for every
bath, 25 cents for a snack and extra char
ges arc made for having your mals bro't

servants to carry you to the hath.

Dismal Swamp Canal. The water
(we learn) in the Dismal Swamp Canal is
giadually bul constantly decreasing. The
reason, we are told, is this: Some time
since a gentleman whose land borders upon
Lake Druminond, obtained leave of the
"Canal Company" to drain his land into
the Lake; he accordingly dug a ditch some
ten or twelve feet wide leading through
his land into it, when" lo! and behold the
watcrjnstead of running into the lake dis
charged itself therefrom, Hooding iIvj land,
which was intended to he drained, in con
sequence of the surrounding swamps being
lowrr than the body of water composing
the Lake. The gentleman whose land was
thus flooded, to save himself, dug another
ditch leading to tho head of Pasquotank
River through which Ihe water lushis
rapidly, thus greatly diminishing the Sup
ply necessary lo practical purposes of th;
Canal. A great many vessels are now de
tained in 'the Swamp' from the above
cause. M Slate.
