A WALK IN A GRAVE YARD.
BY K. WILLIAMSON.
I walk'd amid the mould'ring tombs
Of the silent, slumbering dead ;
Tho' all were strangers yet 1 sighed
. Over theU lowly bed.
. '' . j ;
Their lonely graves are damp and dark ;
The bright sun lendn no ray
To radiate the dismal vault,
, Or warm the senseless clay.
A voice here speaks to every heart,
From these ancient, mouldering stones:
Stop, poor mortal, read your fate
In death and crumbling bones!
Here's the mother, who looked with pride
On a darling bright eyed boy ;
But the cold grave claim'd ber treasure-,
And gloomed her home cf joy.
The youth, .who at that altar stood,
With a trembling form beside,
And placed a ring on the dimpled hand,
Of a pure and trusting bride,
Has passed away in his early years,
Whenjhopes were warm and bright,
From all that earthly bliss could give
To nature's blackest night.
And, faded like the fair sweet flowers
She wore on her bridal morn,
The gentle girl, he loved so well
Is withered too and gone.
Daily our friends are passing thus
To the unknown spirit land I
The sweetest flowers return to dust
At the touch ofdeath's cold hand.
The young, the gay, the beautiful, y
Have faded like a dream ;
Death's icy breath begrims them ali,
And blasts as wiih a gleam.
j But oh ! the heart sustaining thought
j These forms again shall rise
To gaze with rapture on theft King,
! Descending from the skies.'
Seated upon his great white throne,.
Robed in bright array,
A blaze of glory from his face,
Will make a brilliant day.
An ever'asting glorious day
A perpetual scene of joy,
I Such bliss the heart ne'er felt before
A- bliss' without alloy.
j Then will these forms in beauty stand,
I Sweet anthems will they sing,
"And fill the beav'ns with sweetest strains
Of praise to their glorious King. '
JUDGE MERRIMON ON THE
We reproduce a card from Judge Mer-
limon that appeared in the Telcyratu of
niuwu mat (uuauivu
18th, 1871. We invite the atten
tion of the reader to it.: It will be seen
that lie is, and has been always, in favor
of a homestead policy, and bases his sup
port upon the broad ground of soundness
and wisdom. Read what he says :
M ESSU3 iEditors: My attention has
juetoi.cn caiii-u iu mc i-uiioriai columns j
of your paper of yesterday, iu which, by j
suggestion rather than positive asse.tion,
you give, thte public to understand I am
opposed to .the homestead provisions of :
the preseiit coiiMitution of the State. In i
.i .in j . .i i . i i i
mis y on uo not oniy uo me injustice, ( aoom
which I would not trouble myself,) but
you also doilhe public prejudice, to the ex
tent that my opinion in reference to the
matter may; have weight aud influence in
the approaching election ; and I trust you
will corrrect any erroneous impression
you have made by publi-diing this paper.
The Bugge?tiou you make to the above
effect is entirely groundless. On the con
trary, I araSand have been uniformly iu
favor of a hpmestead jxilicy, and if 1 could
interfere with that provided in the con
stitutionj I ' would do so only to make it
more definite, certain and secure.
I base my support of a homestead pro
vision in the constitution on the high and
broad ground of sound public policy as
well as the futher grounds that it is wise,
just and hu in a tie and promotes and illus
trates higher state of civilization.
The state and society hare a direct and
important interest in the rearing of every
child in the land to see that i: is educa
ted in a sound niorality and fitted for use
ful citizenship, jit is manifest this can
not be well br tolerably done if the parents
are horaejeis wlauderers. Every family
ought to have ajhome, however humble,
in which they are secure It promotes do
mestic happiness, stimulates efforts to
self-education, tuonl and religious im
provement,! andj it gives permeanncy to
character and fixedness to citizenship
indeed, it is emphatically essential to the
The convention act expressly prohibits
the proposed convention from inlcrferine

SALISBURY, N. C, JUNE 28,
to find yourselves and others seeking
groundb-ssly to excite the fears of "iparlm.
poverished people by suggesting that the
convention, if called might and ..woaud
establish a new supreme court, and pro
vide for the election of new judges, who
might decide this homestead provision in
operative under the constitution ! of the
United States,; as to "old debis."
Now .no one has any authority' to ay
thai the present supreme courts will be
abolished, but suppose that it shall be,
bow does it followf that new judges will
decide as you suggest 1 What ground
have you, or any one else for suggestions ?
If new judges shall be elected,-they will
be North Carolinians, and In sympathy
with the people as much as the, present
judges. Will they not be sol What
motive could they have to injury' the poor
and helpless, especially wlie our whole
people are more or less impoverished 1
Do you reply, they would so decide be
cause the law is otherwise, t Then,
would you have them make a dishonest
and corrupt decisi:u ! You will hardly
But there is uot the slightest gronnd
forihij suggestion, f .r a homestead poli
cy is a tound and highly important pub
lic policy it is rapidly becoming an
American policy as well as the fixed pur
pose of our people.- This of itself will have
some weight witb any court. Then, it
has been held by the highest and very
respectable judicial tribunals in several
other states than our own, that the home
stead provision has a retro operative effect
aud these decisions are authority, and
will have weight with any intelligent
jndge or any supreme court that may ever
sit in this or any other state. But further
still, our own suDreme court has decided
likewise, and this decision is binding in a
very high degree on any subsequent court
in the state. Now, iu view of the m.ini
ftst policy of the state, the. decision iu
other states, and the express decision iu
our state, would any conscientious judg
even if he had legil doubts of his own,
uudertake to over ride and reverse these
decisions,; aud especially whilo the su
preme court of the Uuited States has
made no decision to the contrary No
reasonable person can so believe for one
moment. So that it appears that any fu
ture judge w.-nld have every motive to
support the homestead policy of the slate
and would have the authority to do so ol
the highest judicial power in this stale
aud other states as well ;.?nd so it further
appears, that your suggefiion to the feats
of I he people is idle aud groundless.
But there is a positive provision in the
p:ea:'nt constitution that places in the
most imminent peril every household in
the state. It is provided in sretion two
of article ten of the constitution, that "no
property shall be exempt from sale for taxes,'
and this clause in the very section that
provides for the homestead.
Now if the legislature shall levy from
the people the taxes they are sworn and
boupid by the present constitution tojevy,
such taxes will in a short while swallow
. up every household in the state. I am
prepared to show by the most indubitable
facts and statistics, that the people of the
state, under the existing constitution, will
have to pay into tiie treasury of the state,
annually, over fifty per cent, of their in
come, and the balance of it will be en
gulphed by federal aud county taxes.
This result is inevitable under the exist-
'(, coiieiuuuon, as i enow uaiiy? tu.liie
sad convention ol hundreds who are honest
ly seeking after information to control
their action at the approaching election.
The man who has but a homestead is
generally the least able to pay oppressive
taxes, when these come, the homestead
will certainly go by express provision of
the eonsitutir.ii, as it stand.''.
The unfriendly suggestion that I, at
any time, solicited contributions of money
from friends to present a test case about
the homestead provision to the supreme
court of the United Stares, is utterly
g oundless and scandalous.
And there is not the slightest ground
for the fur. her suggestion, that inanv

Raleigh, July 17, 1871.
A WON DERFUL SURGICAL OPER
ATION UPON A YOUNG LADY.
One of the most remarkable cures on
record has been nearly effected upon the
person of Miss ilattie Thompson, of Wa
terbury, Conn., wh was scalped in a
button manfactory over a year ago, from
the nape of ber neck to her eye brows, so
that the skull was laid bare. Death was
expected, and almost hoped for, as the
only relief which could come to her; but j
the d ictor noticing that she rallied from
the first prostrating effects of the accident,
determined to experiment with the French
process of ''skin grafting," and after the
head had been brought into a healthy
state of suppuration, he made the first at- j
tempt, taking the "seed skin" from the
patient's arm. The result was admirable,
but exhaustion was induced by the new
wounds, and a supply of skin had to be
taken from. other sources. The nurse of
Miss Thomas kind ly volunteered ; the
doctor, delighted with his success, applied
the knife to his own arras, and many
yonng lady friends came forward and
sacrificed portions -of their own badies for
the salvation of their suffering sister.
Over one hundred separate pieces made
up the new scalp, and Miss Thomas has
souvenirs of her frieuds much better than
bed-qnilt blocks, or even locks of hair.

U ilhamof,Dinwiddlo ccuotj, on false
pretenses, were arra.gr.ed jat the bar of the
Hasting court yesterday, and plead gnilty
and were adjudged five years' confinement!
each m the State Penitentiary. Wm. II
Benson was then put on Uial and plead
'not guilty," but was convicted by the
jury, and hU ;erm of confinement iu the
penitentiary fixed at five years. Warren
will be tried to day.
It sppeared from the testimony that
these four "sharper" having "spotted''
Mr. Williams, a plain, unsuspecting
conntryman.depittised Martin to apprcach
him to get bis money. Martm went up
to Williams, got in Conversation with Lira,
asked him where he was going to, See.,
and iutroduced himself as a person who
had come down here as a purchaser of
twbacco. Having ascertained that Wil
liams was going to Petersburg next day,
he begged the pleasure of accompanying
him, and Mr. Williams readily consented3.
Martin then asked Williams to go with
him to the American Hotel, where he was
to meet a gentleman and pay for a lot of
tooacco, that day purchased.
At the American they net William's
confederates and one of them presented a
bill for SI 13, including one item of about
$2iS for freight. Martin pulled out his
pocket-book and offered to pay the bill
out of a check for S2.500. which he ex
hibited, at the same time exposing a lot
oi snam gold coins. 1 he confederate said
that he could not give chango for the
check. Then Martin proposed to borrow
28 of his new acquaintance, and seeing
that Williams, who had opened his pocket-book,
had more money, increased his
nqitfst to the amount cf SI 13, which sum
he obtained. Williams was at first satis
fied that nil was right, but as Martin now
slipped away from him, he began to sus
pect that something was wrong. He spent
an hour or two iu going about the streets
telling everybody that he was robbed.
Then he bethought him of a plan to cap
ture the rascals. He went down to the
"Biennis llott.e," disguised himself in
chabby old clothes, cut off his beard, and
commenced to wauder around, ou the
Near the Packet office he descried two
of the men. He followed llu-iu up to the
Seventh street bridge. They stopped ou
top ol the bridge. He took a po.-ition
under it. After a few moments the two
men were joined by their two confederates.
Williams then got hold of a negro who
was passing under tho bridge and gave
him 5 to iu:i for a policeman. ' As soon
as the policeman appeared in sight (he
negro had gotten two) the lour confidence
began to diverse. Immediately
Williams came out from his concealment,
drew his pistol, and commanded the party
to halt. The party stopped and smrcn
dered. Upon cxaminatiou of their persons
after the arrest it was found that the SI 13
had been equally devided between them.
The evidence against three men already
disposed of was very conclusive; it will
scarcely prove less so i.i the cue of
arren, wno u to ue tried to uav.
' llkhmond Enquirer
Arrested in Norfolk Upon the
Charge of Violating the Enforce

yesterday gives au account of the arrest
of John C. Baker, Esq., of that city, upon
the' charge of having violated the enlorce
luent act by refusing to allow negroes to
vote at the late elect iott in that city. Upon
the evidence of a number of negroes, he
was sent mi to the til term of the United
States Disli ict Court fnrtii.il, and was
bailed for his appearance. Says the Vir
"This shows the spirit which animates
our political opponents, who are acting
under the impression that by such perse
cution they can in lhe future prevent
judges and commissi juers from exircisiug
due vigilance at the polls. T heir villain
ous aims will be defeated, for t lie arrul in
the outset of such a man as John C. U.tkor,
rt hosc character stands above reproich,
will injure them more than the man they
are thus pursuing, and he is, moreover,
t lie last man wi 'bin our acquaintance who
can be deterred by intimidation from per
forming his whole duty. Ol the contra
dictory evidence offered we prefer raving
nothing until the ti ial comes oil' in Novem
ber, at which time he will be triumphant
ly acquitted, even in a Federal court."
Mr. Baker, the gentleman in question,
is a son of M.Jor Win. J. Raker. .f Nor

is well and favorably ki.owu here.
