In connection with the history of this

circumstance which took place in those
days. Tbe Jeflreys iamily were noted
for their bravery ! and high ; sense of
honor. They nevei allowed any one
to rt fleet the least upon themselves or
family, and when any one attempted it
he was held iespbnsible. There had
been given a ball or party in the neigh.
borhoftd at which! many of tLe young
people gathered.: Among them was
a.beauiitul young lady named Saily
Jeffreys, a sister of Marmaduke Jeffreys.
She had been engaged to young gen
tit man for some time, and was soon to
be married. The morning after the
ball when the horses had been hitched
to the carriages and sulkies, and the
company was ready to leave, Miss Sal

Now for the-facts and traditions as

to the lamented death of that gay
young lady calling her name, and

In our issue of the 14 th of May,
we published an account, (with some
comments,) ahich was passed on and
ordered to bo paid by the Board of
Countr Commissioner, as expenses of
tha 8uptjrior Court Clerks Office.
"Wa drew a comparison between the
expenses of the office as kept for dlf.
ferent years, whioh comparison showed
that this last account was extravagant,
as well as informal, and ,not made up
as tha law requiros, which fcta was
sufficient cause for the Board to have
thrswn it out, until it wss presented
prominent use made of my name in.
As to charges of extravagance
against the County government, I have

informal, but that there were a num
ber of articles charged in tlie sccouit,
for which tho county should not have
paid. Tha law makes no provision
for furnishing printed blanks to the

the News' has got matters slightly
mixed up, the bid Poterage church

ahould not pay, and you have the ac

Now wa ask, is it at all a matter of
waa deeded to the English Crown, and
if our memory "is not at fault, some 4
or 5 acres on which it stood,-with it.
This was before , we knew any thing
about it, but it belonged and was cut
off a tract'1 be'onifg t a gentlem m
named James C. Jooe?', at the time we
lived in that neigh1oihool. Old
Potc'ase was occupied by tho Enclisb
furprisa, that the peoplo of the county I church for a time but they ; cease to
ahomld . riaa. up and, comylain at t'te I preach in it, and it was then for two
with lightning speed; in a short time
tbe sulkey was upset, throwing Miss
Sally Jeflreys with great foice against
a stump killing hei instantly. Miss
Hunt was cast beyond the stump and
recoveied with little or no injury. Tue
stump remained many years alter, we
have seen it frequently. In tbost days

Virgiaia was then the itenerant preach
er, lie was called ou to preacn tne
funeial, and in the course of his ser
mons said that "Miss Jeffreys had been
dancing all eight before and he had no
doubt she waa then dancing ia hell."
Marmfuluke Jeflreys roselrjm his seat
advanced to the pulpit, took the Rev.
Mr. Early by tbe coat' collar, dragged
him out ot doors and iravehim a terri
ble whipping, remarking "lhe might
think what he pleased but he should
not express it." .
Mb. Editor ! In all my reading I
have never secnl any transaction, hav
ing the least foundation iu fac more
"mixed up," than the above extract
contains. At this time I do not pro
pose to deal with any portion of th
article, although there ia very much.
which deserves correction, except that
part especially referring to the unpleas
ant encounter between- Marmaduke
Jeffreys and Rev. John Early, after,
ward Bishop Early. Bishop Early had
before his death national rcput-itionj-nd
his memory is still cherished and is
dear to thousands, hundred of thou
sands of good men and women.
Sixty -six yeais ago, he was appoin
ted, his first appointment, to the Tar
River Circuit, then a part of the Vir
ginia Conference. He was then about
20 years old, and the difficulty with
Jeffreys occurred that year. He was
afterwards dn the Tar River circuit and
District before the division of tho Con
fereiicc, several times. He was devoted
ly attached to the'people of this section,
as he was to all sections where Ke had
labored to save the souls of man and
' Marmaduke Jeffreys wa3 the blood
kinsman of my Father, his wife was
the nrst cousin of my Mother his!

I have been at: his house and knew him
well when a boy. He was one of the
most popular j men that everlivod in
this oountypmen and women loved
him, named j their children after him
and his name is now borne by clever
and intelligent men with grey head?.
It is true that the Jeffreys former! v
then, and now, are of the nighest style
of men and women. The collaterals
ded 1 is sermon and beinr about to leave
the house he waa met at the door by
Marmaduke Jeffreys and a crowd of
friends. Jeffreys had a large loaded
horsj whip, with' the thnug wrapped
several times arouud his hand and as
Early approached the door Jeffreys
on the first 'Step struck a heavy blow at
his hcad Early feuded, off. the blow

force, but perfect truth, by the prophet
Joel: "A fire devoureth before them;
and behind tbtm a flame
burnetb; the land is as the Garden ot
Eden before them, and behind them a
desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing
shall escape them. The only- means
of averting tbe curse is pointed out by
the stme prophet: Therefore, alo
aaith the Lord, turn ya even to m
with all your heart, and with fasting
and with weeping, and with mourning.
And rend your heait and not your gar
ments, and turn unto the Lord your
God. for he is gracmut and merciful,
slow to anger, and of great kindness,
aod repenteth him of the evil.
There never was a country more
blessed of God than waa Ibis, and there
never was one more uograteful and
wicked. We have already been visited
by tbe great calamity of civil war, but
like the judgments whicu came upon
Pharaoh, it seemi . to have hardened
our hearts . Another and a terrific
