Murphy, in thje 20th year of her life. Death has invaded this family three times within the past 12 months? Jfirst, the wife and mother was taken ; tlien the -eldest son, and now the eldest daiighter. It is seldom any family experiences such waves of sorrow within one year. Miss Bettie's remains were followed to the grave on Sunday last by hundreds of sy mpathis k ing friends. ; o Mr. John F. Wilson, of this place lost his left forefinger Saturday .-evening, last while1 out hunting. He was sitting on a , rail fence or was crossing one, the butt of his gun on the ground and his left hand on the niuzzel. In attempting to lift the gun, the cck struck a rail and exploded one barrel of the piece, the charge passing through the upper part of the palm, carrying away" tho bones, ten dons and muscles of the forefinger. This involved the total los of that meinbei , so that when Drs. Whitehead ami Trantham came with their surgical relief they decid ed at once to take a way the linger, together with all the shattered -bones, and close up the racancy as neatly as possible. At the present writing tho patient is doing well. -o Information Waxtko, of an itinerant Methodist preacher, whose name was Isaac Robinson. He came as is supposed, " from Prince GeorgeXo., Maryland, about 1801, to Iredell Co.,. C, with a young son, Andrew -Green liobinson, who also be eame a Methodist preacher. It is further supposed that the family jnternianied with another, by Ujo name ff Caton at or near tlie Forks of the Yad kin. Some of the" same family went to Canada and changed their name to Kob ertson, and those w ho came this way may have done the same. Hon. John K. Rob inson, a member of Congress, is desirous to know whether any of the descendants f this Robinson family, or of the Catons Are now living in this section of country. If any one can give information, ho is re quested to communicate to this paper; to Hon. John R. Robinson, House of Reps., Washington, or to Geo. R. McNeill, Salis bury N. C. Sad and Fatal Accident. Little Ellen, 1 an epileptic daughter of Mr. D. C. Iieid, aged seven years, residing a few miles east of jtowD, although the ' subject of unremitting solicitude and watchful ness, wliile being leu alone in t ue sitting room, one morning last week, not exceed ing 2 or 3 minutes, fell into the fire, and was so badly: burned before assistance reached her, as to cause her death in four hours. When found she was standing in the floor, iichtiug the flames out of her face with her hands. Her clothing w entirely consumed except a band around her waist. - She only spoke, twice, once in answer to a question, she said, "yes, I had a fit and fell into the fire." And again "Oh, papa, I cannot stand it." o Prof J. II. Denck, assisted by Mrs. Annie R. Rankin, Miss Jeanelte Schloss and Prof. E. B. Xeave, gave a musical concert at Meroueyfs opera Hall last Mon day night. Prof. Denck's performance was truly wonderful. It is only a few times in one's life (in this section, at least,) that an opportunity to hear such a dis tinguisheu musician as 1'rot. Uenek is offered. Prof. E. Ik Neave in his cornet solo, certainly, displayed much skill in x - - - execution and splendid judgment in ex pression. W e nave heard many , play a cornet, but none. ever, that eouals Mr. Neave. Mrs. lean kin, sang two songs in her usual attractive style. Miss Schloss in Cavatinapfrom Robert le Diable cer taiiily deserves the highest praise it was i J " 1 by far the finest song of the evening. o Now ! the girls are happy ! The boys are happy ! What makes them happy " .... ujlt we jiave it skating Rink. - Mr Jas. Wren is conducting it in Meroney's Hall. The vounir folks are sliouinjr and sliding in all directions. There are'several class es who visit ska'tiusr Rmks. 1 here are the professional skaters gracefully (?) gliding 'round the room ou one foot and the like. Then we have the sliders, these strike one lick with the left foot and then slide across the floor with both arms out stretched like a turkey buzzard about to light. Then we have the zigzaggers these can't control their feet, and each leg isJeft to go its own way and they gener ally go different ways. Then we have the girls, they are always, without excep tion, about to fall, this they never do, but they are scared the boys must stay close about in case of accident. Some of the girls laugh right loud, if you were to stand justgoutside and keep right still, you. miglifbear one laugh occassioually. They are ajl, as we said at the outset, very happy. o ; 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 paper : 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 countenance. Gone when most we felt her worth, When her virtues brightest shonej Cone when all the joys of earth, Might be counted ad Iter own. May a loving mid merciful God comfort her noble husband, for He alone can. - A bale of cotton was washed sixty miles down Nense river by the recent freshet, and Burton Adams swam out and floated it a shore and took it to Raleigh and sold it for $40.41.

Thy Troy has fallen Ihy dear land Is marred beneath the spoiler's heel; I cannot trust my trembling hand To write the grief I feel. Oh, home of tears ! But let her bear This blazen to the end of time; No nation rose so white and fair None fell so pure of crime.

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.

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 the bar. His services to the country and to his people are too well known to require no i 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 zette. REVENUE SEIZURES. 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 ou the 11th inst., one wagon and team for peddling, tobacco, without a license. On the 12th inst., from John Combs, o Wilkes county, two wagons and teams for carrying empty whiskey barrels, the brands ou which had not been defaced, as required by law.

Bentley, of Wilkes county, one wagon and team, ten bushels of chestnuts, a lot of cabbage fcc, for hauling stamped packages without orders. On the same dav. from J. A.
