THE LATE MRS. PI11LO WHITE.
Xv have already published notices of
the decease of the late Mrs. Nancy- R.
White, wife of Philo Whiteat Whites
town, New York. Probably no other
Lady "to the manor-born" in Rowan
county, or in Western CaroFiua, or possi
bly within the limits of the State was ever
called to sustain more aeltcate Tiner rr
sponsBnVsocial and official relations with
society in public life, as tlie companion
of her husband in the varied official posi
tions to which he had been called, by both
National and State Governments, at home
and abroad, diplomatic and otherwise,
than tlie lamented subject of this obitua-
ry. it was tneir aesuny 10 nave resiueu
many years in foreign countries, and for
lengthened periods in each of three of
these United States: And it must be con
solatorv to the bereaved husband, in his
anguisli for the loss of his most cherished
treasure on earth, as well as of heart-felt
satisfaction to Iier numerous surviving
relatives and attached friends here and
elsewhere, to know that the deceased ladV
was esteemed, and loved, and honored, in
eacli and all the communities where she
had resided and was best known. During
fourteen years, at the meridian of their
lives, and in the primeval days of that
State, Mr. and Mrs. White's home was in
Wisconsin, where they were active par
ticipauts in the responsible work of aid
ing to .mould the political, social, literary
and religious institutions of that then
new and rapidly rising State sovereignty
And that it may be seen how well the late
Mrs. White acquitted herself of her obli
gations to that community, to its social
institutions and its religious organiza-
Hons, we extract the following obituary
notice from a Racine (Wisconsin) News
From the Racine Argus.
Died at Whitcstown, N. Y.. November 29th,
1877, Mrs. Nancy K. White, wife of Hon. Philo
White, aed neventy-tive years. For long years,
at an early day, they were prominent residents
of Racine, as well as of Milwaukee previously.
It is with a senRation ol real griet and pain
that the-veiy many friend of General and the
late Airs. White, hear of the death of that most
lovely and estimable lady, whose amaible char
abler wax 01 the highest-type ot Christian wo
manhood. So loving and" devoted to her
friend, 0 genial, kind and charitable to all.
Of personal character, with the advantage of
very extensive travel, a life time of familiar
intercourse, with the best society, she Was
generous, simple, elegant, Christian woman,
H)ssessed of a constant habit of courtesy and
kindness, and a singularly winning manner and
Gone when most we felt her worth,
When her virtues brightest shonej

Might be counted ad Iter own.

ONE CENT A DAY !
Economy is the order of the hour, and
every expenditure, however small, is ex
pected to uive a return in full value.
every family requires one good, reliable
family newspaper. If such an article can
be procured for less than one cent for each
working day of the year, we are not aware
of it. -.1 Family Newspaper should contain
a carefully-prepared summary of all the
news of the day, both Beliyious and iSecu
lar; and if arranged so that tho two de
partments may be separated aud read by
two individuals at the same time, so much
the better. The Family Xeic2oper shonld
have attractive reading and information
for the various members of a household.
Some portion of the paper should be de
voted, every week, tWreligious and moral
improvement, to current secular news, to
agriculture, commerce, markets, finance,
to general literature, &c, with a special
department for the young. Above all, the
Family Newspaper should be perfectly
pure, and free from all contaminating in
fluences in its readiug matter or iu its ad
vertisements. Too much attention cannot
be paid to this feature, when the press is
Hooding the country with so much that is
vile aud pernicious. To crown all, the
Family Newspaper should be untrammelled
by any afliliatiou with sect or party, and
should be free to give all the good news
from and about all the world. If such a
Family Newspajyer can be had for one cen t
a day, it should be taken by every family
in the land.
Such a Family Newspaper, in every re
spect, we find in the New York Obser
ver, now commencing its fifty -sixth vol
ume. Progressive, comprehensive, sound,
reliable, pure, it is just what is needed in
your household. Send $3.15 for a year to
The New York Observer, 37 Park Row,
New York. Sample copies are sent free.
It is ill to bring but of the flesh what

Gen. Sheridan is in Washington and
has expressed the opinion ihat there will
be no war with Mexico unless it comes
"by accidental collision of American and
Mexican forc-s.'" It probably never has
occurred to him that under the Constitu
tion of the United States war cannot come
by accident," and that it belongs to Con
gress and not to the army to declare war.
If he lives until after 1879, we trust he
will learn that by the same Federal Con
stitution the military power is subordinate
to the civil in these United States, and
and that a Lieutenant General who shall
dare to propose to the President to declare
citizens banditti with the assurance that
upon such proclamation he will summari
ly iut them out of the wav, will be in
danger of losing his commission in the
shortest sort of order. But it would take
Sheridan a million of years to learn all he
needs to know. Hal. Obserrcr.
THE SUPREME COURT.
A correspondent, "N," iu to-day's paper,
pays a fitting tribute to the sterling worth,
the commanding abilities and the irre
proachable character and spotless reputa
tion of Hon. George Davis, in advancing
his claims to a grateful recognition of his
merit at the hands of his fellow-citizens
through the General .Assembly, . by his
promotion to the bench of the Supreme
Court of North Carolina.
As a lawyer, Mr. Davis is a peer of the
most prominent in the profession iu North
Carolina : deeply read through the fruits
of long study ; thoroughly disciplined by
an extensive practice ; a powerful advo
eate and an impressive orator, he would
adorn the bench as he has shed lustre on
His services to the country and to his
people are too well known to require no
tice from' us suffice it to say that to him
belongs that rare virtue of true citizenship
which never shrank from the acceptance
and the performance of public duty. Amid
the many eminent names which have
been mentioned in connection with the
Supreme Court bench, the Legislature
could not err in the selection of that of
Hon. George Davis. North Carolina Ga
Revenue officers haVe been making
several successful raids in this regioi
within the last week and quite an excite
inent has been created thereby. Most of
the seizures have been made several miles
out of the city, the blockaders generally
considering it safest to keep that distance
from the city.
Mr. A. C. Brvau. deputy collector, one
the party who have been makiug the seiz
ures, reports the following :
From W. A. Heudrix, of Davie county

for carrying empty whiskey barrels, the

in charge of J. V. Wadsworth, Esq.

A "Very Good Reason.
The reason why only one sample bottle of
Mehkej.'s Hepatixk for the Liverwiil heboid
to the same person, f.r ten cents, by our Drug
gist, Theo. F. Kluttz is because of the enormous
expense of importing the Hepaline into this
country ; but as there are fifty daes in the large
size bottles, it seems two cents per dose is cheap
enough afterall for a medicine that cures dya
peysia and liver complaint. All who have not
had a sample buttle are entitled to one fir ten
cents at Theo. F. K blitz's Dru; store. Three
doses relieves any case of dyspepsia, constipa
tion, indigestion or liver complaint, in the
world. Regular size bottles, fifty doses, 1 00.
