"Lives there a tnan with soul so dead."
Wbo asks not, "Where's, the papers?
A goat who has not in them read
His fellow-mortals' capers?

As idiot, miser, thief and clown
A maggot of creation.

Kind patnus ! In each Saxon true.
Drawn iu with mother's nursiug
In ev'ry white man's veins of blue
The printer's ink is eeursing.
It is the bold, galvanie spark
That keeps his pulse in motion
That fires his brain and steers his barque
To rale o'er earth and ocean !
I've heard of, (though I've never seen,)
Tbe horrid Guyascutus,
Who Is too stiugy, low and mean,
And too much hog and Bru tus S
To take the papers bless my soul.
What can the critter look like ?
His tail, from Darwin's monkey-owl,
Rau feathers and half hook-spike !
I think I met him t'other day
His mouth ear-u ids was gapiug
For stolen news such as "they say"
Who read while he is napping.
Ha-loldalying tale h!d heard
That he Lad pot his claws on
Made in the bashes, ev'ry word.
By some backwoods Munchausen.

This Ignoramus Jaekall
Through forty thankey bags it flew

This hall is beautifully arranged,
. each side is covered with all kinds of
! beautiful things. Running through
the centre is sonic beautiful stands of
I flowers, one case of shoes, from Over

Jewelry and plated-ware in the same
case, in the centre, on the right hand
from the front entrance hangs a beau
tiful moss picture, on either side and
directly under it are some grass pic
tures of beautiful d?sigu and execution.
As you pass down from these, you will
see some fancy wood work, splendidly
done. Then next ; shell work, in the
shape of frames, then some frames,
imitation of Rustic work, wrought
: in leather, which arc simply exquisite,
i A cross of wax flowers is standing
' near, the work of some fair hand,
j which certainly deserves much credit.

mens of bead work, which is very
I pretty. Next, in the corner is some
specimens of Job printing from
i Edwards, Broughton, & Co., at Kal
eih, which are fine.
On the wall at the end hangs some
oil paintings that are exquisitely
beautiful ; on the other side are some

The Tzir Yesterday.
Yesterday was a grand day for the

bright sun, and pleasant breezes ; and
the crowd on the Fair grounds 5m-

their bright and varigated head dress-
es flutteiing in the breeze, and their
brighter, sweeter faces, beaming with
rational enjoyment, is rarely seen. Bnt
we have not space to indulge in a
lengthy remark on this subject :
About 11 o'clock, Mr. James T.
Morehead, of Guilfcrd appeared on the
stand tosupply the place of Mr. Aiken,
of South Carolina, who was "booked"
to make an address to the Grangers
and the publio on this occasion. A
large number of the members of the
order entered the Grounds in proces
sion, confidently expecting to hear Mr.
A., who is well known to be one of
the ablest orators of the Order in the
The live stock exhibited is not so
large and varied as last year. But
what is lost in number and variety
may be made up in quality. There
are quite a number of very excellent
horses, mules and jacks ; several lots
of fine sheep, bulls, cows, calves, and
hogs. Mr. Wm. Howard will proba
bly take the premium on sows and
pigs ; and Dr. Kimbrough of Davie,
the premium on Stallions. The other
stock was so nearly balance in quality,
that our unpractieed eye could make
The show of Agricultural imple
ments is also smaller than last year.
The advent of Col. Underhill, of
Baltimore, with a number of imple
ments, such as seed drills, horse hay
rakes, straw cutters, cider and wine
mills and presses, Ac, Sra, was fortu
nate for the appearance of the grounds
appropriate to this class of Goods.
Messrs. Meroney & Bro. were on hand
with the Farmers' Plow, and a few
other articles in that line. The new
est thing out is Dr. O. Shemwell's
Iron Wheel Scraper and Cultivator,
patented, July 1874 ; designed chiefly
for the cultivation of cotton, for which
purpose it is said to be admirably
adapted of lieht one-horse draft.

of ibis article : 9
A young man who ardently desired
wealth was visited by bis Satanic majesty
who tempted him to promise bis soul for
eternity if he eooid be supplied on this
earth with all the monev he eolnd bum.
Tbe bargain was coaehaded, the devil was
to supply tbe money ' and was at last to
to bare tbe soul no less the young
man could spend more money than tbe
devil could furbish. Tears railed a war. the
man married, was extravagant in his liv
ing, built palaces, speculated and lost aad
gave away fortunes, aad yet bis coffers
were always full. He turned politician,
nd bribed bis way to power and fame
L without reduciug his pile of gold. He
became a filibuster, and Sued oat ships
and armies, bat his banker honored all
his drafts. He went to London to live
and paid tbe usual rates of interest for ail
the money be could borrow, bnt though
tbe devil made wry faces when be came
to pay the bill, yet tbey were all paid.
Oue expedient after another failed ; the
devil counted tbe time, oaly two yeais
that be must wait for the soul, and mock
ed at the efforts of tbe despairing man.
One more trial was resolved upon tbe
man started a newspaper ! The devil
ma tm - 1 ,
growled at the end of tbe farst quarter,
was savage in six months melancholy iu
nine, and broke, dead broke, at the end of
