The Proceeding of? the Northern
We are shown by Mr. Dumont cards
and letters from persons who attended
the Northern settlers' convention held
here in January last, wondering at the
delay in the publication of the proceed
ings and correspondence of that body
as provided for m its resolutions. To
all such we have to say that the fourth
and last form of that document will so
to press to-morrow morning. When
finished it will be a readable pamphlet
of 64 pages, 44 pages of it being letters
from' Northern men who were not at
the convention. These letters! are
equally' as strong as the proceedings of
the convention. It will take about
three days to run off the last form now
ready for press arm then several days
to bind and fold the pamphlet and get
it ready for distribution. It is no small
matter to publish in book form an
edition of 10,000 of such a document,
and few offices in the South have
facilities or type for a work of such
magnitude. If people could see the
process thev would not Wonder, nor
hurry; the work'has been well pushed,
and the editor of the work as well as
ourselves are entitled to every credit
for pushing it.
Rest for Headaches.
Dr. Day says, in a late lecture : What
ever be the plan of treatment decided
upon, rest is the first principle to incul
cate in every severe headache. Rest,
which the busy man and the anxious
mother cannot obtain so long as thev
canananage to keep about, is one of the
first remedies for every headache', and
we should never cease to. enforce it.
The brain, when excited, as much needs
quiet and repose as a fractured limb or
an inflamed eye, and it is obvious that
the chances of shortening the seizure
and arresting the pain will depend on
our power to have this carried out effec
tually. It is a practical lesson to ,be
kept steadily in view, in that thei-etnay1

"Al citizeiifOf Charlotte not only knows

with Jim Currie, the man who, at
Marshall, in that State, about ten days
ago, murdered the actor B.; C. Porter,
and dangerously wounded Maurice

"A force of men have been at work

The Wilmington Star of Friday says;
"The unusual, but in this case not in
appropriate spectacle; of " the reception
of a lady's remains by military, was
witnessed in this city, the late Mrs.
Dora Gregory being the subject of the
honor. At the hour of 11,25 a. m yes
terday, the train of the Carolina Central
Railway reached the depot, and besides
a large number of friends of the family
a detachment of the Wilmington Light

Were removed' from the special car, the

An Old Money Plate.
Mr. W. T. Nicholson, while walking
across an old field near his home in the
vicinity of Eagle Mills, Iredell county,
last Thursday, found an old plate from
which was printed in the primitive
days of the State, the North Carolina
money which was authorized by act of
the Congress which assembled at Hali
fax OB the 2d of May, 1776. Much of
this Id money remains in the country,
and it is familiar to almost every eye,
but this is the first of the plates that we
have ever seen. The plate is of copper,
and not much thicker than an ordin
ary visiting card, it has not been
marred or battered, and though it must
have been lying in the field where
found for many years, a perfect impres
sion might yet be made from it. The
plate, aside from other features of in
terest which it may possess, illustrates
the economy of our f oref athers, one side
of it representing five dollars and the
other side two and a half. It was thus
capable of printing two classes of bills.
The plate is shown us by Mr. W, G.
Nicholson, and can be seen at The Ob
server office. ' '.

colored nurse employed in the family
of Geo. W. Branch, on Tuesday poison
ed one of his children, aeed two years.

Piedmont Press : Last Saturday, 22d,
a small child was found dead and hid
away in a stump in the woods near
lilack Creek church, in the western
part of Davie county. Upon the dis
covery of the child, Drs. Anderson and
cam were called to examine it, wno
were of thet opinion that the infant had
been murdered bystrangulation and then
secreted in that secluded spot. Sus
picion rests very heavily upon a young
lady ot the community by the name of
Smith as being the mother and mur
derer of the child, she having been seen
in that body of woods the evening pre
vious to the finding, and in addition to
this there is circumstantial evidence
which indicates that she is the perpe
trator of the crime.
I hereby return my heartfelt thanks
to my friends for assistance at the fire
of Friday, and am doubly grateful to
Mr. Perdue, Mr. Graham and Mr. Lilch
tenstein for special kindnesses to my
family. May a kind providence neip
them and theirs as I thank them for
