Col. Wm. Johnston, of CLarlot to, has
published a card iu the Southern Home,
in which he goes for all papers that
criticized him, and says : "They state
that I sought office of the President ;
that I said 'we desire to see the Democ
racy of North Carolina defeated at the
next election and that I had joined the
Radical camp,' See. 1 pronounce these
and all such statements utterly false.
Such charges are unworthy'of notice to
those who know me, but others may be
misled by my silence.''
Now this looks as if he were stiu a
Democrat and not a Radical. But is a little the rise of $50, but this is a small

Instructions, with necessary papers, have
been sent to the chief of police of Mem

place of the cumbersome silver dollar,
now in circulation. The government has
been heretofore issuing silver certificates
of the denomination of $10 and upwards,
and they are constantly preferred to tbe
specie, whether gold or silver, as being
far more convenient for the purposes of
trade. Certificates of one, two and five
dollars would meet a public want, and
there is no good reason why the. govern
ment should not let the specie accumulate
in the vaults and issue upou it bills of
this kind. Mr. Smith shows that since
tlie rehabilitation of the silver dollar the
government has coined over one hundred
millions of silver dollars, but has been
able to force out into circulation only
about thirty -lbur millions, and that it has
been returned into the Treasury and
bauks about as fast as it has been issued,
and the silver certificates called for in its
place. This is a sufficient indication of
the public want, aud it is to be hoped
that the bill now before Congress ena

The allegation was that during the tri

It bore on the margin what purported to
be the signature of. four jurors who denied
that they saw any newspaper during the
time they were empannelled. JKe thought
it important to cross examiue the jurors
in connection with their admission that
they had during that time given their au

that the jurors be produced in court, or
that the court appoint a commission to
take depositions, and that he be allowed
to produce further testimony as to the

damage, but the fire was extinguished
before doing serious harm to the Times.
All other buildings in the block were
practically destroyed. It is know that
one winau was killed in trying to escape

canvas stretched to save her, and her
head was crushed. It is supposed that
other lives were lost.; The pecuniary
