A tremendous crowd assembled in the

wheu, as he-was reading the ceremony,
the audience rose and stood on the seats
aud some on the backs of the seats. It
was only eagerness to see what was going
on that prompted this actiou, and made

two ladies and delivered his message. As
the young ladies passed up the aisle to
their seats they observed all eyes turned
on them. The Superintendent asked his
messenger for the names of the parties at
the-window: lie replied that he prefer
red'nor giving them. This circumstance
forced tho whole school to believe that
the young ladies were guilty of running
around the church and peeping in at the

that they were the supposed guilty ones,

following: "Constantinople, Feb. 23.
A draft of the peace conditions contained
the stipulation that the six principal Turk
ish iron clads should be ceded to Russia.
on the ground that otherwise the Porte
might sell them to England. The Sultan
objected to this stipulation. He stated
that he would, prefer to destroy the ves

any foreign power. - The incident termin

The Times' Vienna special confirms the
report that the Czar has threatened to
The Porte hesitates to subscribe to
Russia's conditions of peace, which vir
tually abolish Turkish domination in
Europe, except in the immediate neigh
borhood of Constantinople.
The Porte holdsconstant cabinet councils.
St. Petersbug, Feb. 23. The Golos,
iu its issue of to-day, says, regarding the
proposed peace negotiations, "either the
British squadron should withdraw to Besi
ka Bay or the Porte should receive proof
that it reckons in vain upon the presence
of the British iron clads in the sea of
Marmora. Turkey should be informed
that if peace is not signed at the earliest
practicable date hostilities will be resum
ed." Loxnox, Feb. 23. The Times and
Daily Graphic both regard the situation
as very unsatisfactory. The Daily Tele
graph says nothing could well be darker
than the prospect. The Tunes in its lead
ing editorial article says that it considers
the situation very unsatisfactory. "Eu

teeth and is increasing its armaments day
by day. In such circumstances the coun
try can but give its confidence to the gov

control the dangerous susceptibilities
which have on all sides been aroused."

Carpenter is at the point of death from
consumption, and is bankrupt. Incarcer

nothing to his punishment. His wife is
invalid, and is entirely deendent upon

poverty and distress of the family that
the action of the Governor is unanimous

Loxdox, February 25.
The Manchester Guardians Rome cor
respondent telegraphs as follows: "Tlie
feeling is growing here that the new
Pope is not so liberal as was thought.
It see'ms certain that Cardinal Pecci and
Leo XIII. do not hold the same views.
It is now believed that the Pope will
remain secluded in the Vatican."

Patriotism does not seem to prevail
over the love of gain in England to-day
anv more than among our Northern hreth

Throughout the current auti -Russian de
monstrations, the Czar's agents in Eng
land, the New York- Sun says, have been
cooly contracting with British manufac
turers for the machinery of the new tor
pedo flotilla at St. Petersburg, and have
been forwarding British-made torpedoes
to Constantinople. These latter have
been principally the Whitehead, or fish
torpedoes, such as were used at Baton m,
and pronouueed by Sir Charles Beresford,
in Parliament, to be "remarkably intelli
gent able to do anything but speak."
It is odd to see a simultaneous movement
of British troops to check Russia and of
British torpedoes to help her. Should

will appreciate the supposed feelings of

from Sunday afternoon. There is per
haps no journalist in the State with so
large a circle of acquaintances, and none
with a greater degree of popularity

ple. A native of Warren county and a
telegraph operator in early life, he bought
an interest in the Warren ton Gazette a
short time after tlie" war and became 'one
of the editors and proprietors of that pa
per. He came first into prominence, how
ever, as city editor of the Raleigh r,Xeics,
which position he "assumed with the es
tablishment of that paper in 1871, and in
which he achieved a repntatiou second to
that of no North Carolina repoi;ter before
or since that time, as an indefatigable
news gatherer and a sprightly and hu
morous writer. Some of his. productions
will bo long remembered as first-class
specimens of the current style of Ameri
cau humor. Retiriug from the Xetcs

About a year ago he became- city.editor.

Description' of Christ. The follow
ing is a correct translation of an epistle
sent by Hublius Lentulns to the Roman
Senate: There appeared in these davs a
man of great virtue, named Jesus Christ,
who is yet among us; of the gentiles ac
cepted as for a prophet of tf uth; but his
disciples call him the Sou of God. He
raiseth the dead and cureth all manner
of desease. A man of stature,, somwhat

countenance, such as the beholder must
both love and fear. His hair the color of
a chestnut full ripe, plain to the ears,
whence, downward, it is more orient,
cnrliug and waving alwint his shoulders.
In the midst of his forehead is a stream
or partition of his hair, after the manner
of the Nnzarites; forehead plain and very
delicate, his face without spot or wrinkle,
beautiful with a lovely red; his mouth
and nose so formed as nothing can be re
presented; his beard thick, in color like
his hair; not over long; his look innocent
and mature; his eye gray, quick and clear.
In reproving, he is terrible; in admonish
ing, courteous and fair-spoken; pleasant
iu conversation, mixed with gravity. It
cannot be remembered that any have seen
him laugh, but many have seen him weep:
iu proportion of body, most excellent;
his hands and arms delectable to behold;
in speaking, very temperate, modest and
wise; a man of singular beauty, surpass
ing the children of men.
Important Sale.- The other day a very
important transaction took place in real
property here, Messrs. II. & E. J. Lilly
buying at public vendno the two large
and well-known Beaver Creek factories,
located about seven miles from town.
This sale involved a fortune in itself, the
purchasers invested about $70,000 in the
enterprise, as they .became the owners of

with their machinery, but also all the as

from Havana of the terms on which ieace

BILLINGS ON MARRIAGE.
Sum marry forluv, without a cent in
their pocket nor a drop of pedigree.
This looks desperate but it is the strength
of tlie game.
Snm marry because they think wim
niin will be scarce nexf year add live to
wonder how the crop holds out. . ,
Sum marry to get rid of themselves,
and discover that tlie game was one that
two could play at aud neither win.
Sum marry the second time to get even,
and find it a gambling game the more
they put down the less they take up.
Sum marry to be happy, and not fiud
iug it, wonder where all the happiness
goes tew when it dies.
Sum marry, they can't tell why aud live,
they can't tell how.
Almost everbody gets married, and it
iz a good joke.
Sam marry iu haste, and then set down
and think it carefully over. Sum t'tiuk it
carefully over tust aud then set down and
marry. Both ways are right if they hit
Sum many coqnetts. This is like hy
ing a poor farm, heavily mortgaged and
working the balance of your days to clear
oph the mortgage.
But, after all, married life iz full as cer
tain as the dry goods business. Kno man
kan swear exactly whar he will fetch up
wheu he touches calico. Kno man ken
tell jist what calico has made up its mind
to do next. Calico dout know herself.
Dry goods of all kinds is the child of cir
cumstansis. The man who stauds on the bank shiv
ering, and duesent, iz more apt to ketch
cold than him who pitches his head fust
into the river.

Some person has written thus:
Nothing is more common than to hear
people talk of what they pay for adver
tisements, ets., as so much given to char
ity. Newspapers by enhancing property
in the neighborhood and giving the lo
calities in which they are published a
reputation abroad, beuefit all such, par
ticularly if they are merchants or real
estate owners, thrice the amount yearly
of the nieagre sum they pay for their
support. Besides every public-spirited
citizen had a laundable pride in having a
pajer of which he is not ashamed even
though he should pick it up in New York
A good-looking, thriving, sheet helps
property, gives character to the locality
and is iu many respects a desirable public
convenience. If from any cause the mat

not be up to your standard, do not cast
it aside and pronounce it good for nothing
until satisfied that there lias been more
labor bestowed upon it"than is paid for.

Store, that relieves an ordinary cpld. Tlie
Globe Flower Couon Syrup never had an
equal for Coughs, Colds and Long Affections.
It positively cures Consumption -when all other
boa.ted remedies fail. Sample Bottles, ten
cents. Regular size, fifty doses, $1.00.
Ahead vhere they loan you a dollar and chalk
it down till to-morrow, for a bottle of M ca
fe el's Hepatine for the Liver. The enormous
expense of importing the ingredients of this
great liver medicine into this country, is why
our Druggist, Theo. F. Klattz, sells but one
sample bottle to the same person for ten cents;
but as there are fifty doses in the large size bot
tles, it is cheap enough after all at two cents
per dose, for a medicine that has never been
known to fail in the eure of dyspepsia and all
diseases of the liver. It has never failed in the
cure of liver complaint when taken as directed,
no matter of how long standing the disease. It
cures Chills and Fever, Constipation of the
Bowels, Dyspepsia and Liver Complaint. Sam
ple Bottles ten cents; regular size, fiftv doses,
