Lieut. Buchanan, of the United States
signal service, has been in the city the
past tew days, making an examination
of the office here, and on his departure
mlorined Sergeant O Donoghue that it
was as well arranged and as well man
aged as any in the service. He is under
the impression, however, that the regis
tering of the barometer is incorrect, but
believes this is mainly due to the fact
that the elevation of Charlotte above
the seacoast has not been accurately de
termined. Prof. Kerr's geological re
port puts the elevation of the track at
the .North Carolina depot at 725 feet,
and upon this basis the calculations
have been made. It is learned, however,
that Capt. Roger P. Atkinson took the
measurements ot all points along the
Carolina Central road, and that these,
which do not agree with Prof. Kerr's
figures, were tabulated and are still in
existence. They have been written for.

Improvement of Sidewalks.
The question of improving the side
walks is now the one which is upper
most in the minds of those to whom
such matters are entrusted. A propo
sition has been made by members of
the street committee to lay the princi
pal thoroughfares of the city with a
certain kind of stone, which can be got
ten and cut at a rate cheaper than
brick. It is proposed that this stone
should be laid four feet wide in the cen
ter of the walk, in such a manner that
it can be widened to the full width of
the sidewalk whenever the city feels it
self able to do this. It is claimed that
this improvement would be permanent
so far as it goes that it would be as du
rable as granite.
The proposition seems to meet with
general approval, and will doubtless be
accepted by the board of aldermen. The
main question is, How much money
shall be expended on the streets ? As
the board must be governed in this
matter by the wishes of the tax-payers,
it would be well to have the matter ful
ly discussed.
If there is any one thing upon which
our citizens agree, it is that the side
walks should be improved. In their
present condition they are little short of
a disgrace to the place. But it is equally
well established tnat public opinion de
mands that whatever improvements
are made shall be permanent. The
street committee are of this opin
ion, and believe that they are acting on
this principle when they propose the
plan given above. Now let the citizens
say how much they are willing to ex
pend in this direction.

The meetings which this lady is hold
ing at Calvary Mission church are daily
increasing in interest. She preaches
with great earnestness and simplicity,
and seems to hav6 a wonderful control
over her audience. But her work does
not stop here ; she goes among the con
gregation and presents tp individuals
the truths of the Gospel, and in this way
she has induced several persons to be
come seekers after religion. The church
wras crowded last night, as indeed it has
been every night since the meetings be
gan, and the number of those who re
sponded to the invitation to come up
and be prayed for was much larger
than at any previous meeting.

The editor of the Lumberton Eobe
sonian, who was here last week at the
convention of Northern settlers, prints
the following: "As we were sitting in
the office of the Central Hotel, Charlotte
which by the way is surpassed by no
notel in the outh last week, enjoying
an Havana just handed us by a friend,
the door opened and a human head ap
peared near the top of the entrance,
Lowering our glance, we noticed that
the head rested upon shoulders which
in turn were supported by a foundation
resting. upon the floor. We procured a
yard stick and found that Capt. Ficklin,
freight conductor on the Charlotte and
Augusta railroad, measured 6 feet 8
inches."

CHARLOTTE PRODUCE MARKET.
The nifcHheti of tbe Lawiiore Com
plications in the Smith Ac Forbes
Case.
At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, the
kaleidoscope of the Smith & Forbes
case received another turn, and this
time the view showed greater confusion
and was altogether of a more war-like
character than any heretofore present
ed. It will be remembered that Con
stable McLure, on the afternoon of the
day before, removed, for the second
time, the portion of the goods upon
which he had levied, to the auction
house of Maxwell & Harrison. Here,
at a quarter before 3 o clock he held
them in peaceful possession. Suddenly
the deputy United States marshal down
on him swooped, armed with papers
from the district court, and demanded
the goods. The demand was not ac
ceded to and the marshal was ordered
to leave the house. Kefusing to do this,
or not agreeing to it with sufficient
alacrity, Constable McLure summoned
a posse comitatus and began the work
of ejecting the marshal by force. The
latter resisted this procedure but was
nnally compelled to succumb to supe
rior strength. By this time a large
crowd had collected about the door ot
the auction house, and out of this crowd
the marshal summoned & posse to assist
him in re-entering. A slight attempt
was made to get into the house, but the
marshal meeting with resistance again
retired, to consult with counsel.
These are the facts as gathered from
those who witnessed the scuffle, for it
was nothing more than a scuffle, no
arms being used and no blows passed
only some very lively pushing. The
police were called to preserve order and
clear the sidewalks which by this time
had become crowded, and for a half
hour or longer things remained in statu
quo, the crowd awaiting the return of
the United States marshal to see what
would be the result of another attempt
to enter. But for some reason the mar
shal did not return, and in the course of
an hour the street and sidewalk
in front of the store were deserted. Con
stable McLure and his posse retained
possession until aarK, wnen tue latter
were discharged from duty.
The attorneys on both sides of the
case were in consultation yesterday, but
as they keep their own counsel, it is im
possible to tell what new move will be
decided upon to-day. It is qnite evident
to outsiders that a number of suits will
grow out of these cases, some of which
will involve serious charges.
The store of Smith & Forbes was
closed yesterday throughout the day
under the attachment of Sheriff Alex
ander, served upon the agent of Mr.
Reynolds, the trustee, day before
terday. Everything was quiet in
quarter.

It is stated that the Countess of Bur
gundy who has been traveling m this
country for some time, will arnve in
this city to-day with her suite, en route
to Florida. - She travels in a special car,
which is attached to the train that ar
rives at 11:17 this morning. It is not
likely that Charlotte will be honored by
a visit from the countess.
Carolina. Central Shops
Under this head the Wilmington Star
has the following: "Whatever Char
lotte mav do in the. premises of the re
moval of the Cafolina Central Railway
shops to that city from Laurinburg-v
and the business men of that place are
loth energetic? and shrewd nothing
definite will be known about the trans
fer, if it is made, until the next term of
our Superior Court. :The next term
will begin on the 2nd of June, and the
removal lias to be made by that tribun
al. Our own people should i be -on the
Affaire of the Pit.
The New York Sun, of Monday, pub
lished the following editorially :
"The Shawl Neck cocks with which
Dr. Brown, of Georgia, proposes to whip
anything wearing gaffs and feathers
that Kentuckians or Tennesseeans can
bring into thepit at New Orleans on
the 20th of February, are, by all ac
counts, a very game breed of birds.
Success has attended their fighting in
five inter-State matches, if their record
is correctly given. At Atlanta the
Dusty Millers were so decisively and
unexpectedly dusted that one backer of
these famous Alabama birds found
himself poorer bv$l 1,000 after the battle
was over. The "Shawl Necks next got
away with the game cocks of South
Carolina at Augusta, and afterwards
pave a walk of imported Cuban chick
ens good reason to wish they had stay
ed where they were hatched. A lot of
Irish Reds from Long Island were the
next to give way before the onset of
the Georgia fowls, and then the Shawl
Necks were ready to tackle the formida
ble Chany Eyes of North Carolina.
Arriving on the ground not in the best
fighting trim, they nevertheless over
ceme the tar-heel chickens in sixteen
out of nineteen mortal combats. After
these achievements it is not surprising
that Georgia sporting men point with
mndst nride to the Shawl Necks as in
vincible birds, though it might be well
to remember that the uncertainties of
cock-fighting, as of horse racing, are
great. Dr. Brown's ironclad chickens
came from a long series of crossing of
game breeds, which finally resulted in
a heavy-set, baggy-necked square
breasted cock of dangerous pluck and
muscle. If they triumph over the
Kentucky Dominiquesat .New urieans,
the crowing of their Georgia backers
will no doubt be sonorous."
On the occasion when the Georgia
birds tackled the "Chany Eyes," the
backers of the former ioneuea uie
main and only hack fights were had.
It is a notable fact that Holt's cocks are
nearly always beaten in hack fights but
when it comes to a main they are near
ly always the walk that walks off with
the money. . Another thing: we pro
test, in the name of Uncle Ned Glavm
against any more of this "chany eye
business. The Sun is talking about the
"faer-feamed-fleary-eye" and repeated
reference to the "chany eye is not
creditable to its intelligence.
Sr far as the Petersburg Index-Ap
peal is concerned, we call its attention
o the fact that the word "fowl when
applied to game cocks, is not orthodox.
"Bird" is the technical term, and a man
who lives as closo to the Carolina line
as the IndefrAppeaX man does, ought
ta know it x m,
- The cock fights must be over. They
were rafflihfe off the gaffs last night.
These are fery costly weapons, being
made of the very best quality, of steel.
The thoughts of our sporting men are
turned toward' Greenville, the moun
tain city of - South Carolina, wuer .
main is to be fought on the 29th, 30th
and 31st insts. between - cocks from
Greenville and Laurens counties. - 1
Help for the Indigent Sick.
To the Editor of the Observer:
A suggestion for the relief of the
indigent sick of our city, at a nominal
expense to the tax-payer: That the
authorities make proposition for the
election at large or appointment by
themselves of a physician, with a sala-
rv of one thousand dollars a year, wno
shall be required to do the practice
and furnish the medicines at his own
expense to those of our population who
are known to be unable to pay for such
services and medicines; that all heads
of families and single men of said indi
gent class of our population, who are
liable to pay a poll-tax, shall be requir
ed upon application to the physician to
exhibit a receipt from the city marshal
showing that his poll-tax has been paid.
