It is announced in Raleigh that th
Farmer and Mechanic has passed into
the absolute control and management
of Capt. R. A. Shotwell and J XV
Dowd, Esq., who have leased the paper
on very favorable terms, for a half a
dozen years, or longer. It is their
design, we believe, to adopt a new
name for the paper as soon as a head
ing can be engraved. Capt Shotwell's
aim is to make an unexcentionh1
family fireside newspaper, devoted to
the interests of the industrial classes of
our people. It will no doubt attain a
wide circulation and we hope will
meet with encouragement from the
A Special Xerni of Court.
Xext thing in order will be a special
term of the Superior Court for Mecklen
burg county. The dockets are full and
business is steadily piling up on them.
There are now sufficient cases to en
gage a court for a period of six weeks,
and a special term is imperatively
necessary. The only question is as to
wnen it shall be called for. All the
judges of the State are now engaged
upon the circuits, and will not be
through with their own courts before
June. This is in the midst of the har
vest season, and a special term at that
time would hardly be desirable. The
commissioners will, therefore, probably
not asK tor tne court tor a time earlier
than the middle or last of Julv. and
by that time the dockets will be still
The County Treatiury.
A recent act of the Legislature made
it the duty of the county treasurers to
post in some conspicuous place about
the court house, an itemized statement
of the receipts and disbursements of
every month. Capt. Belk has complied
with the law and vesterdav there ap
peared seven or eight pages of the state
ment for February on the bulletin
boards in front of the court house door.
It must be stated here it will not be
known by that old style of advertise
mentthat the expenditures of the
county last month, were $2,494.70, with
some claims yet to be presented. The
receipts of the county treasury last
month were $10,343.75, and the balance
on hand at the time of the last settle
ment with the finance committee was
62,886.97. The balance on hand at
present is $10,736.00.
Death of Iflr. James If. Orr.
Mr. James II. Orr died yesterday af
ternoon about 5 o'clock at the residence
of Dr. Jos. Graham, whither he was re
moved from his room Sunday after
noon. He had been quite ill for several
days past, and his friends have feared
the worst ever since he was taken sick.
Mr. Orr is a well-knowrn citizen, and
has been conspicuous for years as one
of the leading firemen of the city. He
was especially popular with the mem
bers of the department, who have
shown their esteem and regard for him
by the most devoted attention during
his illness. He was in the prime of
life just thirty-three years of age. His
funeral will take place from the Epis
copal church this morning at 10 o'clock.
The companies composing the fire de
partment will attend in a body.
Purim Ball Last Nlg-ht.
The Purim calico ball at the Central
Hotel last night was a very elegant and
successful affair. In addition to the
vouner ladies and gentlemen of Israel-
kish families in the city, there were in
attendance quite a number of visitors.
The dresses, although strictly calico,
were made up so handsomely as to con
stitute elecrant costumes: in fact, the
casual observer would never haye sus
pected that the material was the much
abused ana onen aisuarueu uuw. auc
dancing was spirited and continued
till a very late nour. ine entertain
ment was given for tne benent or tne
orphan asylum which is soon to be
erected at some point in the Southern
States under the auspices or ine oraer
of B'nai B'rith, and quite a handsome
sum will no doubt be raised.

There is a form of consumption whieh was better
indicated by the old fashioned name of "decline."
It is the dreaded scourge of some parts of the
Southern States, claiming more victims every year
than are swept away by the most terrible visitations
of the yellow fever. The malady arises from the
inability of the patients' system to take up and as
similate the nourishing ingredients of the food
that is eaten. Some years ago the medical profes
sion with remarkable unanimity, agreed that Cod
Liver OH contained the most concentrated and
easily absorbed elements of nutrition. If the nau
seous taste and smell of the oil could be avoided it
would unquestionably be the most sovereign reme
dy that ever shed a healing blessing on the human
race. And these repulsive properties are success
fully removed by the union of pure Cod Liver OH
with the Hypophosphites of Lime and Soda in
