charged twenty-five per cent more titan our regular
rates, and vriU only be inserted on the first tmd fourth

company for Montgomery, but depart-

to New Orleans, where he will join the

A JTsckoHhe-Laniern Fools an End
Last Saturday night, it will be re
membered, was wet and extraordinarily
dark. Between 8 and 9 o'clock the en
gineer of the shifting enerine in the yard
of the Kichmond & Danville Railroad,
in this city, was brincrinsr some cars un
from the junction to the depot. He was
running nis engine backwards and wlun
. ii r if. i
ucitr me uarouna central crossing saw
a red light on the track waving him
down. He stopped short, like grand
father's clock, and presently the light
waved him ahead. He followed it
slowly and cautiously, and after leading
him along about a hundred yards it dis-
appearea as suddenly as it had appeared
to nim and left everything around as
black as before. Then he realized what
it was and brought his cars along into
bunday morning in shifting at the
junction some of the cars broke loose
and fourteen bumpers were broken.
The mishap was instantly ascribed to
tne evil spirit which had been seen up
the track the night before.
At tne End of lh Docket.
Among the appeals to the Supreme
Court, set for hearing at the end of the
docket, as published in the Raleigh Ob
server, we notice the following among
many others : v anng et als. vs. Wads-
worth et als: S ten house & Macaulavvs.
Davis et als. ; Caldwell vs. Neely ; Simp
son, administrator, vs. Simpson etal:
State vs. Hoke C. Secrest. The cases
set at the end of the docket were to have
been called peremptorily yesterday
morning npon the assembling of the
court. Those enumerated above are
cases from Mecklenburg except that of
lioKe v. fcteerest. which is ot interest
throughout this entire section of the
btate. it appeara trom the fact that it
was placed at the end of the docket that
upon the granting of the certiorari unon
the first hearing, the papers were made
returnable to the present term of the
Supreme Court. So that if they are re
turned, as ordered, a decision will be
rendered in this case within the next
few weeks and it will be known whether
Secrest is to have a new trial or whether
he will be re-sentenced at the next term
of McDowell court.
The Bay Orator.
There was quite a remarkable per
formance at the court house last night
which, though very slightly advertised,
was attended by quite a large crowd.
It was the appearance of "the boy ora
tor," little Eddie Hawkins. The little
fellow is only six years and five months
old, and really looks younger, being
small for his age, with a very childish
face, entirely unlike what would be ex-
pected in a boy whose precocity is very
remarkable indeed. He discourses on
'politics, education and science" with
a fair expression and in first-rate lan
guage. His father, who is an unedu
cated man. and a native of Madison
county, this State, says the boy has fixed
11 1 1 , 1. .
up uiese speecnes nimseii, uemg a com
bination of sentences that he has heard
and read, which are put together with
a good deal of ingenuity. He learned to
read, almost without assistance, at four
years of age. and even previous to this
time had developed unusual powers of
memory, lie readily repeats hve or ten
lines after having heard them read one
time, and, what is equally remarkable,
accompanies the repetition with appro
Mr. Hawkins says that he has anoth
er child which exhibits similar powers
ana another, which, to use his own
words, does not seem to be able to learn
anything at all. He is a poor man, and
is allowing the boy to exhibit his pow
era tor the purpose of making money
to educate him. He has decided to give
another exhibition at the court house
to-night, and. in an advertisement to be
found elsewhere announces that no
charge will be made for admission, but
a collection will be taken up after the
performance. Those who heard the boy
last night were very much pleased, and
there will doubtless be a large crowd to
hear him to-night.

place ; but I must ask indulgence long
enough to Speak a word of this school.
It was established by Capt Potts in
1875, and has now become the largest
school in this portion of the county
numbering about fiftv or sixty nunils
so that the principal being compelled to
obtain assistance, has secured the ser
vices of a highly accomplished young
lady of the town, and the academy may
now boast ot its success and its natter
ing prospects for the future. The build
ing is well furnished with comfortable
seats, maps, blackboards, &c, &c, and
the well-written compositions, the neat
dress and good behavior of the pupils all
attest the excellence of the school;' ' :
