The machine shops of Messrs. Dewey Bros., turned out last week a locomo tive for a large lumber concern in the State of Georgia. The locomotive, which was built entirely at the above named sho»ps, was taken out on a wooden railway in the yards of the shops this morning, thoroughly tested and found to be right in every particu lar. That a locomotive can be built from the ground up right here in Goldsboro is a cause for congratula tion on the part of every citizen in cur city.—Goldsboro Argus. The newspapers from the western part of the State bring news cf great damage done by the recent rains and consequent flooded streams. Through out that whole section the rainfall was excessive, hhe wind was high and the temperature low, with a considerab.e fall of snow. In Lenoir and Caldwfe.i counties the storm was the most severe ever known for this time of the year. The Yadkin changed its course in several places and all bottom land on the creeks and riv ers will have to be re-plowed and planted. Land is much damaged, aud the roads are almost impa:.sabie for the mud. Of the thirty-nine ruling princes of Europe twenty have no direct male heir. These include, among German princes, the Kings of Saxony, Bavaria, and Wurtemberg, the Grand Dukes of Saxe Weimar, of Mecklenburg Schwer in, and of Hesse, the Dukes of Saxe Altenburg and Saxe Coburg, and the Princes of Lippe and both Schwarz- burgs. Besides these there are the Czar of Russia, the Emperor of Austria, the Kings of Italy, Spain, Belgium, and Servia, and the Prince of Liechten stein. TAX COMMISSION AT WORK. •ANINGS.

The State Tax Commission, com posed cf the members of the Corpora tion Commission, is now preparing a pamphlet of instructions to the tax- liatETS of the State touching the per formance of their duty. The Cooimis- eion has been at work on these in structions for several days, but they are not yet completed. Under the new Machinery Act, sec tion 6, it is provided that the Board of State Tax Commissioners shall have and exercise general supervision over the taxlisters and assessing offl:ers of this State, and take such measures as will secure the enfiorcement of the provisions of this act, “to the end that all the properties of this State liable to assessment for taxation shall be upon the assessment rolls and assessed at their actual cash value.” This is the principal duty prescribed for the Commission, in fact its reason for being; and section 17 tells how this purpose of the law shall he carried out and the end aimed at attained. It is as follows: It shall he the duty of the Tax Com missioners at least thii'ty days pre vious to the date fixed for li&tiiig taxes to prepare a pamphlet for the instruc tion of tax assessors. Said pamphlet shall, in as plain terms as possible, ex plain the proper working of the tax laws of the S.tate, and shall call par ticular attention to any paints in the administration of the laws which have seemed to be overlooked or neglected. They shall advise the assessors of the practical working cf the laws, and ex plain any points which seem to be in tricate and upon which assessors may differ, particularly calling their atten tion to the requirement that all prop erty shall be assessed at its fair market value, and the penaities upon asse-'^ors for failure to observe this provision. Copies of said pamphlet shall he sent to the register of deeds of each county, whose duty it shall be to s§e that each assessor and taxlister is uirnished with a copy. But the commissioners are nzt to step w'itih preparing and sending out this pamphlet. They must visit every county in the State and this they will try to do between May 1st and June Is. To do this„ they will divide out the counties of the State, and beginning •on May 1st each commissioner will visit one county-seat a day, if passible, notice having first been given the tax That .r ■ It was inJ the germ I jury was f? in Euglanc adopted by nations on country, w among the gained rai of the w^ antees tq trial by establish^ with the] continuef| tinue a mission allow it suits an criminal We U' the Sup days ag gro wh( and sen Supreme cision no negil Such coming court ii figures negro ij race in| but m£ and oognitii] Ham ij Maiij groes not inJ the nil nals. negrO'^ gro stitirtr justice wise, the da men exclui may] ton,! of i ofi til rors. enth century that item of trial by the Anglo-Saxons ode of trial is [ed and prosperous f the globe.

The Sta^e Treasurer’s Books, Trea.surer Lacy thinks the time has ceme to change the present notoricusly antiquated system of book-keeping hitherto maintaining in the Treasurer’s office'. The experience of post Treas- ureirs and the recent stealing of Major Martin, carried on sysitematioaily but undetested for a number of years, have proved to him the necessity for a change in the method of keeping the Eitaite’s accounts and he is now pre paring a new set of books which will be ready in the early summer. The sys tem he has adopted is a modern, up- to-date one, with some alternations and improvements suggested by practi- cal experience in the office. It will he put in operation as soon as the new books are ready and lit is practicable to make the change. in thi ibitui's Chas. ,H.
