women caught it and were carried away
by its msciuating ullurements.
Of the eight hundred odd acres which
includes the whole Beaver Dam district
is is believed there are at least some four
huudrcd which is underlaid by an aurif
erous bed of gravel. ' This gravel bed is
from two to four feet iu thickness aud
will probably average some three feet
over the whole 400 acres. It is covered
by an alluvial deposit of an average depth
of five to six feet. The general character
of the gravel is exceedingly good, and
contains all the way to the bed-rock more
or less course and fine gold. Thus fur
very little active woTk has been done by
the company, and that only preparatory
31.70 per cubic yard, wnatevrr work
has been done on the projicrty has only
substantiated the idea advanced by men
of ability and experience that it is oue of
the richest mines iu the State. Beaver
Dam Creek supplies an abundance of wa
ter for mining purposes nearly the entire
year, and its waters are sufficient to cany
off tailings, to tho Yadkin wltere they arc
rushed on to the ocean. The company
have erected npon their premises some
half dozen, buildings for the proper work
ing of the miue. They have also a boiler
of forty horse-power, and one of David
son's hydraulic pumps with five inch
pipe capable of throwiug five hundred
gallous of water per minute, and a large
quantity of tubing and spiral riveted pipe
together with hose and other essential.
It is expected that active operations will
be commeuced upon this mine in a very
short time, and when inaugurated will be
pushed on with a Tim by one of the
strongest companies that ever operated a
mine iu the Old North State.
Russian newspapers are couducted on
an economical basis, aud the publishers
tell no lies. The Moscow Teatrailnian
Gozcta recently incurred the displeasure
of the Government, and a'n officer of the
press bureau was sent to the office to ar
rest the nronrietors The only person in
the establishment was the publisher, and
he wa sternly suromned to fetch the
editor Tlie imblishrr went upstairs and
retumed speedily with a large pair of
scissors, saying, "Here, sir, is me eouor.
The officer was rather disconcerted, but
soon recovered himself, and exclaimed
more sternly than ever, "No nonsense ;
fetch me th sub-editor." Again the pub
lisher departed, and again returned, this
time with a pot of paste ami a orusn.
"These, sir," ne said, "are we uo-eui

The vanity of loving fine clothe and
fashions and valuing ourselves by them
is one of the most childish pieces of folly
that can be.

Captain Bads' Ship Railway.
The Scientific American of this week

Captaiu Eads claims by his plan to be
ftble to take loailcd ships of the largest

as can be done by a canal after the Les-

I The project Is certainly bold and m-
t . .1 I. I. 4
ccnious, aud the projector anticipates no

serious difficulties in carrying forward
his enterprise. The engravings referred
to in the Scientific American show the
proposed construction of not only the
railroad, but the appliauces for trans
ferring the ships from the water to the
rail.

i An "Intimidation" Case.
Yesterday United States Commis
sioner Puree!! trial a somewhat novel
case, in fact what mabe teniied a
disastrous case for the prosecutor and
a veritable example of the "biter
bitten." The prosecutor was one James
Whitaker, a rather sharp-looking
mulatto, wlio charged Mr. Hardv
Burt and Mr. Joseph Goodwin with
intimidation in that at the late
election, in Buckhoru township, they
conspired together to deprive him of
his vote for President of these United
States. The question was asked in
the trial if Whitaker had not been
convicted of an infamous crime. This
elicited the fact that he had been con
victed of false pretences in the matter
of some twenty-five bushels of cottn
seed. Clerk of Superior Court Up
churcb was sent for and read from
the docket of Wake criminal court
that at the May term, 1877, the jury
returned a true bill against Whitaker
for false pretences. This settled the
matter. The defendants weredischarg
ed, it being shown that they had uoth-
ing to do with the matter. The prose-
and became once more. a defendant,
for the solicitor of the Superior Court
reinstated the case and took posses
sion of Whitaker. Failing to give
bail he was put in jail. .
The Situation in Tennessee.
Washington, November 9. The
latest returns of the Tennessee Lcgis-
lature, received from Democratic sour,
ces, place the Senate at fifteen Demo-
crats and ten Republicans,, the House
at thirty-seven Democrats, thirty-sev-
en Republicans and one Greenbacker.
If the alleged ineligible Republican
member of the-House (McKenna) is
thrown out and a Democrat substitu-
ted,the figures would be 38 Democrats,
thirty-six Republicans and one Green-
backer. This would give thc Demo-
crats a majority in both houses, and a
majority on joint ballot of six ; but if
McKenna retains his seat, the Demo-
cratic majority on joint ballot will-fee

State Senate will be of that party and
thirty-eight members of the House
out sevepty-five. If the Republicans
obtain control of the House they may
unseat enough Democrats to give them
a niaioritv on ioint ballot. This con
tintreiicv make the Democrats a little
annrehensive. In view of the situa-
t.on. hone is entertained at Republi-
can headquarters here that they may,
after all. iret theSenator from Tennes-

In Lincoln county, Nev., there is
a spring of ice-cold water that bub
bles up over a rock and disappears
on the other side, and no one has been
able to find where thc water goes. At
andther point in the same county U a
large spring, about twenty feet square,
that is apparently only sonic eighteen
inches deep, with a sandy bottom.
The sand cau be plainly seen, but on
looking closer it is perceived that this
sand is in a perpetual state of unrest
h
niu no button has ever been found.
It is said that a teamster, on reaching
(this spring one day, deceived bylu
aimirpnt
' apparent
shallowness, concluded to
soak one of his wagon whecl3 to cure
the looseness of its tire. He took it
off and rolled it into the, as be thougf,
shallow water. He never laid his eyes
on that wagon wheel again.

A Congressional Investigation
"V. Called for.
The Xew York lPorW of yesterday
contained a double headed editorial
asserting "on high authority" that be
fore the election was held on Tuesday
last, and whileall the important mem
bers of the cabinet were absent from
Washington, the records of the vari
ous departments-of the executive gov
ernment were overhauled', by. nnofficU
al persons who appeared in the sever
al departments bearing tho authority
of the chiefs of those departments re
spectively. The World says that Tho
archives of the government coyer four
Republican administrations as wellc
the administratioaof President Haye?
and that the accounts of tho natio.
have never been examined by experts
or officials not affiliated with the par
ty in power since the year 18C0. The
World argues that the purpose of the
alleged overhauling of records j.?as to
suppress any that would be damaging
in case the Democrats came into pow
er. It calls for a congressional invest
tigation.
First IN the Fieij). Tho Han
cock campaign for 1884 has been ttart
etl by the organization of a Hancock
Club in Hudson City, Wisconsin.
They lay down their platform indetail,
closely following Hancock's letter of
acceptance, and resolve that to pro
mote the success -of their principles
they are "favorable to the nomination
of General Hancock for President in
1884."
All of our leading Southern ex
changes are disposed !o accept with as
much philosophical resignation as
possible the defeat of Hancock. Wc
arc glad to see this, but it is still
more gratifying to note their desire to
make thc 5501,111 morc independent
f-sustainmg. lou are on tho
track, brethren. When the
riirut
South shall foster and build tin her
material wealth, then she will be able
a
to catch the ear of money-worship-.
