to approach as nearly as can be done, I will
-tate a few facts for the benefit of all concerned
one fact is worth a thousand theories in com
ing to a proper estimate of the present crop. A
'argc New York dealer, who has traveled ex
tensively in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louis
iana, visiting Montgomery, Mobile, New Or
leans, Vicksburg, and many of the interior
towns, by public and private conveyance, was
asked how he succeeded in his collections his
answer was this: 'a thing has happened to me
that never occurred before; I have collected
more money on notes not due, than I did on
those tiiat were due; stating that the reason
was, planters had heen enabled from good
weather for gathering their crops, the good
condition of the navigable streams, and the
facility of railroads, with the good condition of
the common roads, (until the late cold weather
and snow) to which must be added the fine
price paid for cotton in the early part of the
season, stimulating farmers to- push forward
their crops, and make sales to such an extent
that it actually caused cotton to fall one cent a
pound, which it has but recently recovered.
Tiy the sales made by the planters, and con
sequent payment to the merchant:., caused the
payment of their notes before due as stated
the notes having been given to fall due at the
usual time of their collections.' From such a
fact as this we may draw the conclusion, that
the great bulk of the crop has been sent for
ward and sold, the decline no doubt causing
many to sell, as it did the writer of this article
fearing it would go still lower. The country
is now beginning to see the cause of the large
receipts, and the certainty of a speedy decrease
in the receipts from the present time. I have no
doubt that the lntf rolilvvpathor .will to qiiu
.kcui. cause a greater deficiency in Ine receipts
than is looked for, and at an earlier date.
But the great bulk of the crop was delivered,
or hauled to the landings and railroads before
the cold snow. In proof of thi3, I saw a large
Mississippi planter, who told me had sent for
ward his crop and sold it, when usually at the
same period in former years, he had just com
menced sending it off. This planter had come
to Georgia with his money, the proceeds of
the sale of his crcp to buy more negroes, to j
make more cotton for next year. One other
fact is, the large number of negroes which have
passed through Augusta, and over the various
railroads, many of them purchased by planters
of the South-West, showing they had sold
their cotton, and received the money for it, and
laid it out in negroes.
Less than Three Millions.
Worthy of Imitation. They deal summari

During the present week one of them was
charged with not being at his post, going off
his "beat," and using scurrilous language. He
was fined $10 for the first, $20 for the second,
and suspended for the third offence. Another
was charged with going off his division without
leave and being intoxicated. He admitted he
went and took a drink or two with a few friends
he met from the country, iuetead of going to

It is often asserted that the teeth of the pres
ent generation are much inferior to those of
the generations of those who have preceded us.
We wish that some of our many dentists
would prove literary enough to give us a dental
history. We should be astonished, probably
at the dental evils of other days. Evidences of
the use of false teeth by the Romans two thous
and years ago, were found among the ruins of
Pompeii. Three hundred years ago, Martin
Luther complained of the tooth-ache; and a
German Ambassador at the Court of Queen
Elizabeth spoke of the weakness and imperfec
tion of the English people's teeth, which he at
tributed to their custom of eating a great deal
of sugur. Shakspeare makes one of his charac
ters speak of being kept away by a "ragisg
fang." Roger Williams was struck by the im
perfect' teeth of the Narragansett Indians,
whom toothache and decayed teeth trouble
exceedingly. George Washington had a set of
artificial teeth, for which he paid five hundred
dollars. Napoleon always had bad teeth, and
was especially troubled with them at St. Hele
na. Walter Scott speaks, at a comparatively
early period of life, of dental troubles, and
wishes he had some "fresh teeth." Such are a
very few facts which come up in our poor mem
ory concerning a somewhat interesting and im
portant matter. We would like to have many
more of them. For our own part, we have no
doubt that dentists were in demand at the
Court of Chedoris'vner.
Sixgui.au Circumstance. There is a man in
our State prison at the present time that since
he has been in said institution has seen for the
first time for six years the wife of his youth.
He became estranged from her many years
since and subsequently married again, believing
her to be dead. Attempting to commit high
way robbery, he was sent to the State prison,
and the manner in which he discovered his wife
is as follows: A day or two ago he accosted
one of the officers, and remarked that through
a grated window of the easteru wing in which
his cell is situated, he had for several days seen
a woman pass regularly whom he felt confident
from her gait to be his first wife. She lived in
a house opposite the prison, and he desired
that the officer should inquire in order that he
might satisfy himself that his conjectures were
well-fouuded. The officer, impressed with the
singularity of the affair, complied with the re
quest, and found that the woman was the pris
oner's wife, she having long since thought him
to be dead, and was unconsciously living within
his very sight. The officer did not inform the
woman that her husband was an opposite neigh
bor, and he will continue to be such for four
years more if she during that time remained in
the same location. Builon Post.
"Self Defence" i!al8 in Sew York.
The New York Tribune, referring to the fre.
notices the formation of what it tesnas "Self
Defence," clubs, whose duty it is to protect
their members. It says:
There are at this time four of these clubs,
having for their special object the subjugation
of the prowling rascals who waylay honest peo
ple on their way to their homes in the evening.
The names of these four clubs are the "Mea
sles," the "Raritans," the "Amigo," and the
"Curlews." The oldert is the "Amigo Club."
It is also the largest, comprising about five
hundred members. -Its regular meetings are
held in east Broadway. The majority of its
members are respectable working mechanics,
and to use a phrase well known to the pugilist,
they ''trave on their muscle," caring but little
for the aid of bowie knife or revolver. The
cry of "Amigo!" "Amigo!" in the pronuncia
tion peculiar to the Amigos, at any time secur
es the necessary aid in disposing of the ruffians
who, having all the boldness to rob, are desti
tute of the courage to work for au honest live
lihood. Next in importance are the "Raritans."
This club is described as being in vigorous
operation and ready for any emergency. It
numbers about sixty members, who are mostly
dry goods clerks. Some of them are "rough
and ready" young men, and fear nothing in the
shape of humanity. They are always well arm
ed. They have no rules specifying what wea
pons shall be used, leaving that to the discre
tion of each member as the case may demand.
They meet monthly, and profess to be a se

are young men who have experienced life iu Cal
ifornia, Texas and other places of fighting in

tion. The signal for aid is significant, and ef
fective in summoning help, when needed. The
club is divided into sections, and is, according
to description, a complete' organization. It is
supposed to have some connection with the
Broadway and Fifth Avenue Club Houses.
Several of the members are frequenters of
the Union Club.
The "Mczzel" Club is a powerful organiza

The Memphis Bulletin states that the train
of cars on the Memphis and Charleston Rail
road on the night of the 26th, when a little
beyond the Mississippi Junction, thundered
through a flock of wild turkeys, killing two fine
ones! One of them struck the head light,
smashing the glass putting out the light, and
getting completely "bagged" in the lamp from
whence he was taken by the engineer in charge
of the locomotive. It its yet an undecided

THE NORTH CAROLINIAN,
HORRID TALE OF CRIME.
Circumstances have just come to light which
tend to prove that a resident of an adjoining
coiiRty, who has hitherto p'assed as a respecta
ble citizen has been guilty of a series of acts of a
highly crimnal character showing him to be
possessed of the most depraved nature possible.
The principal accused is Willard Daniels, a
man about fifty years of age, who resided, at
the time of his arrest, near Tory Corners,
Oakland county. The circumstances stated
are briefly these: Some time last fall, the ac-
Jcused was entrusted, by the girl's -parents, with
his grand-daughter an interesting and hand
some girl of seventeen years, who resided, in a
northern county of this State, and who 4 is a
daughter of his daughter to bring her to this
city that she might attend school. They trav
eled in a buggy. After they had poceeded a
short distance from her residence, he commenc
ed the most improper importunities, but, for a
time, without avail. His solicitations f were
continued until, at last, w-Jien passing through
an uninhabited district, she reluctantly yielded
an assent, and he accomplished his heinoupur,-
poscs. They stopped ou their wajLiie.gq.jXyjrf
ems ana at several private nouses me'resicerices
of their relatives and did not arrive till several
days after leaving home. Here he took her
to a hotel, when she again yielded to his
desires. Subsequently, she was taken by. him
to a private house, when the criminal conduct
was continued, unknown to the family with
boaded. The accused left here
for his home, but returned after the lapse of
several days. On his return she informed him
that she was likely to become a mother. He
procured for her a box of pills advertised to do
the desired work in such cases, which she took,
without the expected effect. Daniels then took
her to Dr Marsden's office, and he pronounced
her enceinte. At the request of Daniels, she
subsequently went to a house occupied by a
woman known as Mary Baker. Here Dr Mars
den's services were again required by the
grandfather, and it is alleged that he attempted
at five different times, to procure abortion by
the use of instruments. Mrs Baker is alleged
to have been cognizant of these attempts, and
to have rendered assistance when necessary.
The last operation was on yesterday week.
During her stay at this house, Mrs B. ad
vised the girl "not to say anything about the
affair, as it would send all to the State prison."
By some means friends of the girl in this city
became aware of her whereabouts, and took
her to their house. Here she was immediately
visited by Mrs Baker, who asked her if she
had revealed the fact that she was in the
family way. The girl said that she had told
all, upon which Mrs B. replied, "You are a
fool." Daniels paid Mrs B. and the Doctor
each $20 for their services.

charge of attempting to procure abortion.

ence was required here by the doctor. Sus
pecting nothing, he came willingly, and was
somewhat surprised, on his arrival, to find him
self a prisoner, arrested for so horrid a crime.
Yesterday morning, he was arraigned upon
two complaints one for incest, and one for
attempting to procure abortion. The first, he
readily plead not guilty. To the second, he
at first refused to plead, stating that he wished
to advise with counsel before doing so, that he
might be informed as to his rights, and intima
ting that he might eveu wish to withdraw his
plea to the first complaint. lie subsequently,
however, plead not guilty to the last complaint.
His bail was fixed by Justice Bagg at $f),000
which he has not yet given. His examination
is set down for Thursday, the 5th of February.
Dr Marsden and Mrs Baker appeared at the
Police Court in the afternoon, in accordance
with the conditions of their bail, and both plead
not guilty to the charge alleged against them.

Of Mrs Baker we know nothing, but under
stand that she lived in the city some time. It
may be proper to add that the family with
whom the girl boarded ou her arrival here,
had no knowledge of any of the guilty couduet
The fiieudsof the girl in this city are deter
mined to prosecute the matter thoroughly, and
have engaged the services of Mr4Terry to assist
in the prosecution.
The parents of the unfortunate girl are not
yet aware of the facts. God strengthen the
poor mother's heart to bear the sorrow that
must be hers when she learns that her own
father has ruined her idolized daughter! We
are told that her parting injunctions to the old
man were, "Father, be careful with my daugh
ter; watch over her, for she is youDg and inex
perienced, and is going to a large city where
there are many temptations." How cruelly
has he disregarded his daughter's injunctions
If the facts we have stated arc true and
they are mainly taken from the sta;ement

that any penalty fixed by the statutes is too
light to punish the guilty parties. Boston Courier,

The public excitement in relation to tire
mysterious murder of Doctor Burdell receives
an additional impetus to-day, in the shape tf
some very important testimony. A man of the
name of Farrell testifies that at about half past
ten on the evening of the murder he was walk
ing through Bond street, and sat down upon
the steps of Burdell's house to tie the string of

into the house; then heard a cry of murder;
then a man in hi3 shirt sleeves came to the door

witness, after a lengthy examination, identified
Eckle as the man that came to the door. It
was also proven that Doctor Burdell was in
town on the twenty-eighth of October last
the date of the, alleged marriage and that he
attended on that day a meeting of the directors
of the Artisans' Bank. This will not probably
appear in evidence, as the Coroner has no pow

woman, attendant in a shop in Broadway where
canes are sold, testified that a lady and gentle

The testimony of Mr Farrell is highly im
portant. In the first place it corroborates the
evidence of three other persons as to the time
of the murder. We have now fonr respectable
witnesses, who fix the time at between half-past
ten and eleven. They all heard the cry of mur
der. Two of them saw a man answering to the
description of Dr. Burcell enter the house.
Mr Farrell, in addition to this, gives us au
account of the blood on the stairw ay and street
door. The man who left his work unfinished to
go down to the street door deposited the marks
on his way, and there is a stain of blood on
the place where Mr Farrell swears that Eckle's
ha.:d rested. This positive evidence upsets all
the theories formed upon the supposition that
the murder was done by some person from with
out the house. It is, in fact, the only direct
evidence against Eckel. Why the mnrderer
should come down at that moment, cannot be
explained. It is one of those mysterions oc

cumstances which often give a clue to crime,

An Aged Lady Victimized uy the Confi
dence Game. The fact of an aged lady, very
well dressed and of respectable appearance,
having been found wandering in the streets of
Williamsburg, N. Y., on Wednesday night,
was mentioned yesterday. She appeared to be
deranged, and no information of her name or
residence could be obtained. She . was taken
to the residence of Captain Gallaudet, in Fifth
street, and kindly cared for, but seemed to
desire nothing but rest. She retired to bed
and did not leave it until yesterday afternoon,
when she arose refreshed in body aud mind
It appears from her statement that her name
is Catharine Malby, and her residence at Cin
cinnatti, where she owns a house and other
property, having lost her husband in January
last past. About a week since she started on
a visit to a brother in-law in Middletown, Ct.,
with two trunks, and after paying the passage
having $200 in money. At Pittsburg she
stopped ar,a hotel over night, and waa there
advised by a female to travel in company with
a gentleman who pretended that he was coming
on to New York. Mrs Mai by accordingly
gave her trunks in the stranger's charge, and
also handed him the $200 for safe keeping,
and to pay her expenses out of it. At the
first station the stranger left the cars, and also
took with him the trunks. The keys of the
house were'in one of the trunks, and it is pos
sible that the stranger may visit Cincinnatti
and rob the house. Mrs Malby arrived in New
York ou Wednesday last without any money,
and wandered about the city; but no one would
give her shelter. By some means unkuown to

have been despatched to her friends in Middle

thcra of her whereabouts.
Love Tokens. The ancient English enstom
of giving love tokens on the twentieth of Aug
ust, was a very wise and far-seeing plan for
settling young ladies in life, and would, if re
vived, enable a mamma with a large family of
girls to get rid of them as quick as pineapples
at a penny a slice. It was the custom in Eng
land, a long time ago, for "enamored maydes
and gentd women" to give to their favorite
swains, as tokens of their love, little handker
cheifs, about three or four inches square,
wrought round about, often in embroidery with
a button or tassel at each corner, and a small
oue in the centre. The finest of the favors
were edged with narrow gold lace or twist;
and then, being folded up in four cross folds,
so that the middle might be seen, they were
worn by the accepted lovers in their hats or on
their breast. These favors became, "at last,
so much in vogue, that they were sold ready
made in the shops, in Queen Elizabeth's time,
from sixpence to sixteeu pence a piece.
It is common to men to err; but it is only a
fool that perseveres in bis "error; a wise mac,
therefore alters his opinion; a fool never.

A. Washington correspondent of the Mont-
By. (Aa-) Advertiser and State Gazette,
describes a trulytouching scene that occurred
over the dead body of the lamented Brooks.
Indescribably painful must have been the
death of oue so loved to the venerable Judge
Butler. No wonder that he wept like a child,
for within the wide range and circle of Mr
Brooks' acquaintances none "knew him but to
love him, none named him but to praise."
No one having even the common sensibilities
of our nature, can read what follows unmoved.-
"About ten minites after his death, the ven
erable old Seuator, whose locks are now white
with the frost of age, came into the room, and
upon seeing him cold in the embrace of death,
threw himself upou his bosom and wept as if
his heart would burst from its bounds. Judge
Butler bad lavished the attentiou and affection
of many years upon Mr Brooks, aud he seemed
to Le the important object of his solicitude aud
existence, aud while the death-sweat still stood
upon the brow of tbe immortal sleeper, the old
man called to thtf fleeing spirit in tones of sof
row, that moved tht pitying hearts of those
who stood around to tears "My boy, my boyr
my boy !" and such a scene of mourning and
sorrow, as was witnessed there .cannot be com'
prebended, mnch less repeated here.".

of men they r destined to do for. A man
can chisel (the phrase is more expressive than
elegant) qnite as well with bad as good man
ners, and if one's fingers are doomed to be cut,
who wonld not prefer a keen razor to a rough
saw a Damascus blade to a butcher's cleaver?

.Crinoline in Rhysac
BY THE OLD MAN.
A lady with a4Crinoline, was walking down
the street ber feathers fluttered in the air
her hoops stuck out a feet. She walked the
earth as if she felt of it she was no part, and
proudly did she step along, for pride was in her
a early dog Wbfcii wal
ked close by ber side, all save the bushy tail of
which her Crinoline did bide. His tail the dog
with pleasure shook it fluttered in the wind,
and from the lady's Crinoline stuck out a foot
behind, A crowd the tail soon did espy, as il
waved to and fro, and like a rnddcr seemed to.
point which way the maid should go. Tho
curly dog right pleased was he such quarters
be had got, aud walked beside the lady m a kind,
of ioggish trot. Each step the lady, now did
take, served to increase her traiawijile those
who followed in her wake roawd; out with,
might and main. .Some held their sides and
laughed so hard, and ' many fairly cried,, and
many even still confess that day they'd "like
to died.'' But still the lady sailed along; in.
Crinoline and pride, unmindful I the crowd
behind, or dog close by her side.. But soon.
another dog espied the tail whkh tattered free
it so provoked his doggish ire bo eauld not
let it be bat with a deep ferocious growl, for
battle straight he- went, and neath the lady's
Crinoline both dogs were quickly pent. They
fought 'tis said one boor or more the lady
nothing knew bat with her bead, erect sailed
on, and did her way pursue. -Some say she
never woald hare known at all about the fight,
had not one dog mistook and gave ber Jimb"
an awfol bite. But since that day I've hetrd
it said, that lady ne'er was seen upon the street
with so much pride and such a Crinoline,
