For the Carolina Watchman.
Thursday night, April 25th,
was qnite a gleeful time in your ancient City of
Salisbury. Mr. David R. Julian, of the firm of
McCnbb'ina & Co.. and Mi Bettie Culvtrhoue
united their dextinie for life in the holy estate
of matrimony. The marriage ceremony took
Id ace at the Lutheran church. At an early
lour old and young people wended their way
to the church and tilled it to overflowing. The
church was beautifully and very tastefully dec
orated. The banner on the pulpit wa of pure
white linen, fringed with gold lace, and bearing
the ensijjn of a harp of evergreen. The rending
desk was covered with pure: white linen, the
pymbol of purity. The ribbons in the Bible,
and in the Jiook of Worship nsed by the officia
ting minister, were of pure white, nicely tipped
with gold lace. The chancel was richly decor
ated with white flowers, and the altar and pul
pit covered with handsomely arranged boquets.
At .the appointed hour the candidates, for the
holy estate of matrimony, were introduced by a
lively voluntary on the Organ. The happy
couple advanced with a 6 rru step up the ainle,
and in a very eay and graceful manner pre
Bt oted themselves in front of the chancel. They
were very tastefully a ppa relet!, find appeared the
personification of inii'Kfency and afleetion. The
marriiige ceremony was performed by the pastor
Rev. J.G. Neitfer, in his usual dignified and im
pressive manner. In the chancel were two other
clergymen, also attired in their clerical robes,
winch imparted to the occasion nnpreBtavene
and solemnity. After the invocation of the
divine blessing, by Rev. S. RothrocK, ujion the
newly wedded pair, the happy coupple rt tired
under a very lively and gleeful voluntary from
the Organ, and the throng of spectator gradu
ally dispersed. Every thing connected with
the occasion, was quite impressive and imposing

13ERIAII KNOW ALL.
Mr. Editor : As a correspondent t your
valuable paper 1 leel it to be an imperative
duty to say all for our people that I can,
at the same tiuie setting forth their
good qualities, in such a way as to
make them look as writ as possible; and
this 1 intend to do even if 1 have to tll
great big fib now aud then. But what
pioposw to say now in regard to the great
aud excellent character which I have se
lected for my subjtct thia week is strictly
true-every word of it. BERIAH Kxow
b il l a a
all i wuere couia lucre be touua a more
appropriate or suitable name for this uoble
personage t The only thin? about it
which strikes me as being rather queer u
how his parents ever came to hit upon so
very appioproiate a cojrnotnan. In his
infancy he certainly must have shown
great knowledge, of other peoples' busi
iicss. in my uuruble otunion a man
who can know his own business thor
oughly, and at the same time every other
man's in town, Is undoubted a gifted per
eon and the possessor ul a rare and racv
intellect. 1 ain both proud aud happy to
say that our most excellent friend liERIAU
Knowall has not less than a half a do
zen nuulis all of this place. Lous long
may he live, and fl-uiib, handing do wu
his noble principles from generation to
generation. Neither oil th sin blacken
ed or l ime covered pge of ancient or
modern history can be found a name that
will out live or glirter longer hau that of
Deri aii Kxowall'i; for like that of
the immortal Cicero, it will be cherished
in tire mcmoiie's of his fiicuds and foes
until the -closing up of time. There is
one little incident connected with the his
tory ot this most extraordinary man which
may be worthy of notice especially as it
is connected wnh a great man ; (and the
least little incident in a renowned man's
history always proves interesting to the
reader or readers.) and by giving it, it
will show one of tha excellent trails in
his character. It was once reported that
Bekiah Ksowali. had left the mortal
shore; but a few days afterwards it was
corrected by the Hero himself who reap-
Upeared as suddenly as he had disappeared,
and gave us the following story : Lie had
only left the vital shore for a short time
to take a peep at the old fiend of the
lower region to intercede, as said, for the
hypocrite , liars and unbelievers in general.
Tho next question is, did he accomplish
h's mission 7 No. Whyt Well the long
and short of it is he only got to the big
gate where he knocked thump, dump,
thump. "Wio is there f cried a deep
hollow voice. "Me," answered BerIaH.
"Who is me 7" again cried the voice
"Beriah Knovcael." "Well, yon can't
come in here, tor it you know all you
know too much dare-say you know ev
ery body's business. " But I will come
in," answered Bekiaq. ' No you won't,
'cause Master said if "Beriah KxoWALL
should come heie not to let him in 'cause
he would lie him out of office before two
days. So you see how he came back
wiih his hands in his pockets, and can
judge from this of his uoble character.
But the most dilingnisoed feature that
places this man abave the ordinary run
of men his great clcaverucss in carrying
about notes, letters and advertisements,
and dropping them into the post office aud
express office direct d to the queerest aud
most outlandish sounding names you
ever heard. Now he left a medical ad
vertisement in the express office the other
morning directed in a clear bold haud to
"Sassafras Oil In Denand." Who ever
heard of such a queer name ! I can net
Imagine what the man means for I do not
believe there is a person with sueh a name
in the country ; but if there is, BepiaH is
lost the l a i to know him. I intend te
inquire around and if there is, I am going
to send the paper to him, which some-
now or omer got into my nanas. it is a
medical paper and is "mighty" interesting.
and I expect "Sassafrass Oil In Demand"
is some old Doctor or other; but to be
sure ef it I want all who reads this to
look out for for the old fellow but don't
tell him I have the paper; he might take
me np. Who knows what he would do !
I never intend to take any body's mail
out of the office again as long as I live,
if Bxriaii Kxowall does put it there.
Mr. Editor, I believe J shall close up
with the history ef this interesting man
this week, for 1 can not do Lira justice:
but it lu the courss of human evtnta it
again becomes necessary for ma to nae
my pen I shall then finish out this sketeh.
So farewell, farewtll BerIAII Kxow-
all, thon great aud noble Hei.o.
AMERICAN TRACT SOCIETY.
Mr. Bruxer : As yoa have verv kindlv
offered to publish Dot ces of our good work.
I furnish you with the following :
Iheauual meeting of the Society was
beld on the 7th ult., in the Central Prt-sbv-
rian Church. Philadelphia.
Rev. J Williams Edie, District SecrcUrv.
said in substunce. "This Society, in com
memorating its fifty-eighth birth day to
night, would seud thauka to God for the
bleesiDgs that have atteuded it This Society
is wholly undeDotninatiooal io its iodneucs.
Biahop, Mcllvain, of Ohio, is its honored
President. None of its publications have
ever been objeete 1 to on account of a want of
fcvangelieal character, tome eicht or ten
thousand dollars were lost st Chicago.
During the year, 233 new publications have
oeen issued, 45 being volumes. 2c7 Col
porteurs have Wen doiue missionary work:
these have held and addressed 10.000 re
ligious meetings aud made 27d.OOO family
visits, prayiug and exhorting. A large num
ber of Sunday Schools established ; 13,21)3
Protestant families found without the word
of God, to whom it was supplied by these
Colporteurs. The work extends over 34
Mates aud Territories ; &600.0U0 pages of
Tracts are distributed every year, besides
8,000,000 copies of PeriiKlicals, ice."
Kev. 1 . L. shearer, of San Fransico. said :
f,The blesiugs of God rested signally upon
the labors of this Society ; as an evidence of
the fact they had ouly to look at one ot the
eight ceutrts from which it carried on its
work, and we find 3.000 Ireful conversion
iu a single year, and at another, Chicago,
we nud for every fifuu dollars expended a
hopeful convertiou has been noticed." He
then spoke of his own fie d ou the Pacific
coast, of the na.ural wealth and spiritual
poverty, about oue-and-a-quarter percent, of
this va-t population professing Christianity,
much of the gross wickeduess, and the little
doue toevaugelize this couutry, apart from
onr agencies, aud the adaptation of our ageu
cies to the work. Son.
Rev. J.Coltou Smith, D.D., said: "It
was his privilege to be a member of the Ex
ecutive Committee of this great Society ; it
has covered over the whole face of the globe
with a net-work of living agencies ; either
the voice of the Colporteur is heard or the
priuted pages found. All aloDg the Atlaj-

about 20 years ago, in Georgia 1 believe, I
was brought to Christ. Being desiriousto

the Soc ety. visiting the watering aud othtr
places. Professing Christians of every name
welcomed the books win n they saw the im
print of the A. T. S. upon them ; and the
same imprint disarms the world of prejudice,
aud If they were able they bought the b oks;
if not they were given them. Frows that
day to this. I have loved the Society and bid
it God speed iu its noble work of evangiliza
tiou. Many of the 2,73 Colporteurs can sympa
thize with Dr. S., seeing as we do, the fre
quent and happy results of our humble ef
forts, aud the great need of continuing; we
press ou through difficulties aud crosses,
known ouly to the faithful Colporteur. I
received my first commission in Caswell
comity. . (J., about 1 years since; having
been led, as I trust, to Christ through such
instrumentalities. I uew how to hope for
God's blessings upon my humble efforts
aud my disappointment has been much to
my comfort. Now my desire is to see every
county iu my field (W. N. C.) supplied with
a god Colporteur, who will help us with
their influence, contribution and prayers.
Please let me hear from you by communi

TheVutlaws Again on War Path -CoLl-Blooded
Muider of Col. Frank Wiihart
7i5 Buily is Found Piddled With
By a letter received by a gentleman of
this city yesterday, which was confirmed
by passengers on the Wilmington, Char
lotte and Kuihcrfoid Railroad, ) reWrdav
afternoon, we have the sad intelligence of
the death of Col. E. M. Wishart, of Robe
son county, who was murdered by the
outlaws on Thursday morning. We give
the particulars of this bloody tragedy as
far as they have come to hand. It se-ra
that the outlaws sent a message to Col.
Wishart in the early part ot last week,
endeavoring .o make an appointment to
meet him on Tuesday, but for some cause
or other he declined to accede to their re
quest. They subsequently met him at
Moss Neck and requested a private inter
view with him, behind a certain buildi ig
there, which he granted, on condition
that he should met Andrew Strong alone,
and that Stephen Iowrcy hould keeput
a distance. He wts iiif.imd by Ai;dna
Strong that he aud ihc other outlaws
were tired of their present mode ofl.f -and
were desirous of agreeing upon some
terms of surrender. With this object in
view, they witdied to me t him (Col.
Wishart) privately and freily ni.d fully
discuss :hc matter. Finally, at parting.
Strong intimated that tloy should seud
him in a few days and urged him,
when requested to meet them, to obey the
Thursday morning ('apt. Wishart re
ceived another tne sago from the outlaws,
staling that they had arranged tor the
proposed interview to take place that
morning at a point about three quarters
of a mile Irom 1ebanoft Church. In re
sponse to this request ; he ! ft Shoe Heel
immediately, going as it af:erwards prov
ed, into the very jaws of death. Thurs
day eveuing his body was fonud at the
spot where the interview was proposed to
take place, which, by th way, is near
the point where Stephen Davis was kill
ed. His wounds were four iu ntinil or
one in the head, two in the body and one
j in the leg and from their appearance it
would seem that he aud the outlaws wete
in close quarters, jjrobablv engaged in
conversation, when the cowardly, treach
erous fiends' seized their adtautaze tnd
made a simultaneous atvd murderous as
sault upon theii brave and chivalrous,
but, as the event has proved, too confid
Poor wishart! His sudden and un
timely death will be sincerely regretted
by a large circle of friends in Robeson
and adjoining counties; but who will
avenge him ? He leaves a wife and three
children who reside at Shoe Heel, wh-sre
