All the churches of the eity were
largely attended on Sunday. This we
learn from report and not by personal
observation. The Salisbury Watchman
will please note this fact. Raleigh News.
Wonder if Bald Mountain had any
thing to do with this large attendance T
But where was the Local ot the News
that he was not at church also ? He
should have been there. It is wrong for
a local editor to report hear-say when noth
ing but neglect of a plain duty is 1 the
cause of his being unable to report from
personal, observation. We dont know of
any local editors who are in greater need of
church influences than those of Raleigh ;
and it is said that the local of the Daily
News is the worst off any.
Messrs: Editors: There are things
published in some Bibles, and, also, In
some other books, as Bible curiosities,
and given to Sunday School children by
their teachers to memorise which, though
of little importance, are incorrect. Why
publishers of Bibles or other books should
admit such things with so superficial an
examination I cannot tell.

A dispatch to the Ntw York Herald

killing of a Judge in that State :
"John W. Fox. Circuit Judere of the

Too Much Military. Ben. Hill, .of
Georgia, deprecates the fact that so many
military men have obtained office North
and Sooth since the war. He says "there
are enough general, colonels, majors,
and captains in Congress to form a respoc
table army, but uot enongh statesmen to
make a good commit tee."
We are inclined to think there is some
truth in (his, bnt whilst no man should be
placed iu official position arm ply on ac
count of his mifitadreeovi, yet, all other
things being equal, he certainly should be
preferred to an opponent who
shared the privations of the camp or the
perils of the battle-field.
TUB Editor of the Danville (Va.)
Times has recently called upon Governor
Kemi'ku to see how he had stood the
storm that had been raised over his head
because of his late veto measure,. and thus
reports his visit to that official :
"As wo expected, we found him
entirely composed. He is confident mem
bers of the Conservative party, who have
denounced his course, will jus'.ify him in
the end. He has received hundreds of
of letters from prominent men all over the
country applauding the manly stand be
has taken.. Not only are influential mem
bers of hie party coming to his rescue in

encouragement all over the Uuion."
If there were an extra - hundred million

grain, potatoes or other property. He
can get money on these terms now get

that, while Senators Logan aud Bogy are

verdict of not guilty, snd by a special
verdict ordered the liquors to be returned.
Egyptian Dancing Girls. The

Paris. Nothing sensuous can long keep
out of that capital. They form a great

when the following story eame out. The
gin nad been sent by her patents to the cm
vent of monks at the Bambino Gesu to per
forin spiritual exercises before being con
firmed. One evening the nuns collected the
children in an apartment, when late at night,
there appeared lights which sent out a clear
fire, the nuns then chanted prayers in low
tones which the children repeated. Sudden
ly, a door opened, and in the neighboring
hall flames were perceived, accompanied by
a strong fume of sulphur. Then two long,
lean figures one in wjiite. and the other in
black, slojwly traversed the chamber uttering
heartreuding cries. The children were all
terribly heightened, and doubtless from the
con tinned spiritual exercises and long nights
passed in praying, or from the meagre diet
which is allowed them on sueh occasions, aa
a preparation for a first communiuu, the
natural result of the apparition which they
witnessed was that mauy fainted away, or
went iuto hysterics. The nuns nevertheless
drew the ehildreu to the door and while the
ghostly phantom passed to and fro repeated iu
deep tones. You see that those are damned
souls, and if you do not do that which we thai
say, you will become like them aud go to the
inferuo ; one can easily imagine the shocking
effect produced on the over excited girls,

An Egyptian Burial. The King
of Masindy, in Upper Egypt, having died,
was lately buried, bis wives being interred
alive with him. A number of prisoners

their limbs broken, and their mutilated
bodies flung on the dead King and his
wretched widows. The present King of
Masindy looks forward with eomplaceney
to the time when he, too, will have a simi

obsequies calculated to make a family do

THE QBEAT ANTAGONIST OP DI8-
r. EASE. .
What ii the nnturtl antagonist of disease ?
It in the vital principle. From the moment
that disease is developed in the arfSra. this
champion fight the intruder until ft either
conquers or is conquered. Which aide should
medicinal science espouse in this life and death
struggle? Should it depress and cripple tho
physical energies of the patient, thereby help
ing the disorder, oe should it reinforce th
vitality of the patient and thereby assist in
answer to this question must be obvious to every
one above the gradcof an idiot or a lunatic,
and hence it follows that the weak and broken
dowa invalid who chooses to doss himself with
depleting slope, instead of toning, invigorating
and vitaimg nu enervated frame with Hostel-
tor's Stomach bitters, meet he either feebl
minded or deranged. Surely nothing short of
imbecility or insanity could induce a person
laboring under bodily weakness and nervous
prostration, to take day after day powerful
doses of some drastic purgative in the hope of
gaming sirengm tn treby. Although charlatans
may advertise preparations of this character as
tonics, people in the full pWadoo of their rea
son can not, one would think, accept them as
such. If they do the penalty of their credulity
may be the shortening of their Uvea. The rheu
matic, the dyspeptic, the bilious, the debilitated
and nervous, and aU who are subject to intermit
tens, or other diseases brought on by the in
clement whether which prevails at this season,
will do well to strengthen their nerves, tone
their stomschs and regulate their bowels with
the Bitters. The two-fold operation of the
restorative as an invigorant and an aperient, in
addition to its direct and specific effect upon
the disordered liver, renders it a most efficient
remedy for complaints of the digestive, secretive
and excretive organs, at present in use. ThU
fact is conceded by eminent members of the
faculty whose testimony to that effect is pub
lished in Hosteller's Almanac for 1874.
Cholera and Pain-Killer . The efficacy
of Perry Davis world renowned Pain - Kil
ler in all disease of tho bowels, even in that
terrible scourge, the Asiatic cholera, has been
amply attested by the most convincing au
thority. Missionaries in China and India
hare written home in commendation of this
remedy in terms ; that should carry oouvierion
to the most sceptical, while iu popularity in
communities nearer borne is ample proof that
tho virtues claimed for it are real and tangi
ble. The Paw-Kills has been before the
public for over thirty years, and aa won
a deservedly high reputation as an alleviator
of pain and a preserver of health. It has
become a household remedy, from the fact
that it gives immediate and permanent re
lief. It is a purely vegetable preparation
made from the best and pureet materials,
safe to keep nod to use in every family. It

New Boarding Bates.
The undersigned are constrained, more by
necessity than choice, to advance the price of
Board at their respective Houses. Experience
has demonstrated to them the insufieieocy of the
same now charged ; and ae they find nearly all
the attendant expenses of Housekeeping still
advancing, the necessity for an advance hi
Boarding Rates elsewhere in the towns and cities
of the State, have for the most part, had a slid
ing scale, designed to meet the increased prices
wmujvM.HCT, uiuh Hvcuruig a ssie margin on
their time, investsments, and labor. We of
Salisbury, on the contrary, have thus far stood
firmly by present rates amidst all changes, and
hsve struggled to comjte with tbe better paid
Houses referred to ; and hare often been told
that, ball the essentials of good accomodation,
we hare equalled tbem. Bui the effort in this
unequal contest b too costly too exhausting ;
and to continue it, is ooly to assure our failure
in the end which msv entail
permanent injury, a result, we
no boarder can desire to see.
The undersigned do not deem it necessary to
recite more at length the reasons which
impel tbeir present action, many of which are
obvioos to those who will take the I rouble lo
compare their rates with those which ware charg
ed when the prices of labor, rents, provisions
Ac, Were cheaper. It has been to tbem a sub
ject of close concern, snd one which so earnestly
presses upon their attention, ae to leave them
no alternative but to deal with it by the ordinary
rules pf trade, and in this, ihey ' have agreed
upon the following advanced rates,
