IntcnteCold In the Wett.
A gentleman from the western part
of the State reports that the cold in that
section, especially in Watauga and
Caldwell counties, is the most intense
known there for years, and owing to
the protracted spell the people are suf
fering probably more than they have
ever done before. In Caldwell county
the owner of a mill cut ice on his pond
which was twenty-seven inches thick.
Many of the farmers in the colder re
gions of these counties have been com-
Eelled to burn the fences around their
ouses to keep themselves warm, and
work and business of all sorts has been,
as a matter of course, completely sus
pended. Juror for tke Inferior Court

on the thorough canvass of its field;
that its agents have been instructed
and furnished with blanks by your su
perintendent, and that they will report
their labors to me as well as to their

ite and energy, having been greatly re
vived during the last year, and is now
setting an example which I hold up be
fore other auxiliaries, and which can
not fail to exert a happy influence."

Another Big Cock Fight Pending.
The articles of agreement have been
drawn up and signed under., which
there will be another large cocking
main in this city oh Wednesday next;
the 15th instant. The parties to the
agreement are Messrs. S. B. Holt & Co,
of Alamance, on 'the one side, and
Messrs. C. T. Walker & Co, of Char
lotte, on the other. The stakes will be
$25 on the fight and $25Q on the odd.
There will be as many fights as cocks
can be matched between the weights of
4 pounds and 6 ounces and 6 pounds
4 ounces. Messrs. Walker & Co.
will show cocks from six different
States ; Messrs. Holt & Co. will show
none except their own celebrated
breeds and perhaps a f ew flary eyes.
The coming event is being much dis
cussed in sporting circles. It will
doubtless be the occasion of the gather
ing here of a large number of sporting
men from other places and the stock to
be fought gives abundant assurance
that the sport will be verv fine.
