Wilmington iStor.- A car load of
Western (N. C.) apples arrived here
yesterday, consigned to Mr. R. Mc
Dougall. A great ileal of fruit from
the West now finds its way to Wil
mington. A genuiue white shad,
and a fine specimen t that was
cauglit in Messrs. W, E. Davis and
Sons fish traps yesterday. A white
shad on the 2nd of November is
something remarkable in the annals
of fishing in this part of the couutry.
Governor Jarvis has succeeded,
whatever may be urged against bkn,
in giving the State a fine and pros
perous administration ; and o far,
his last days in that capacity are his
best. He has not only becUmeHcnbwn
and admired at home, among his own
People, but has spread his influence
abroad and sown seed that must turn
out his State an abundant harvest
Edenton Enquirer.
$515,000:
The loss op cotton will reach 250,000
and ou railroad material, freight aud roll
ing stock about $365,000. The railroad
property was fully insured by Philadel
phia companies. The cottou loss is cov
ered by insurance with about fifteen com
panies the loss about equally divided.
The fire is continually breaking out yet,
aud it is feared that warehouse No, will
burn. In this city the freight and pas
senger depots, with vast trestliug work,
will also be destroyed.
Two reports are current as to the ori
gin of the fire. One is that a spark front
a passing tug caught in a bale of cotton,
the other report is that a tiuner at work
on the roof dropped a spark from his fur
nace. The latter is the. in ore probable of
the two.

We noticed the other day the telegraph

tional fact that a large force is to be put
to work on a railroad to connect the
mines with the p. T., Va. &Ga,, railroad
at (Meavelaud. Tenn., a distance of 40
miles.
These mines have beeu idle gince 1858.
They have always beeu considered the
richest copper mines in the United States
except those on Lake Superior, hut they
have always labored uuder the great dia
adrantage of difficulty of access, great
cost attending the transportation of the
ores, which were geut we think, to Balti
more for reduction. A wealthy company,
coming into posseagion of such property
would never consent to the expense aud
plies. In short, evcrvthin" ordinarily found delay of such operation, and hence their
determination to uuuu a ranroau.
This purpose will tend to solve a prob
lem connected with the completion of the
Western North Carolina road. The Mur

of as the Ducktown branch, probably be

The Princess Elizabeth noticed in her

to possess some of those rare fowls,
imagining that Mrs. Miljs would re

we were soon wet through. Then hail
was added with thunder and light

generated vast clouds of hot steam,

Streams cf water poured down into

the red hot rocks, made a hiesing and

kind of a place. The storm gradual

other a few minutes later. After this,
however, wc were favored with blue
sky, and climbed to the top of the

lay below us, which we stopped for
some few minutes to admire. Ahead
of U was still a small cone, perhaps
fifty feet high, in the middle of a
rough, hot stretch of ground, emitting
steam and stifling sulphurous vapors
from the numerous orifices and cracks
crusted with yellow sulphur. From

violent explosions threw clouds of
