Mr. Benj. Marsh has done a job of re-v

weighed 400 pounds and was about 4 feet
in diameter. It was a very delicate cal
culation to make this fit tight. The hub
is not keyed or fastened in any other
way. This job saved the expense of buy

Bnil iing and Loan Association.
This institution is in a flourishing con
dition and is doing a good work towards
building up the town. It was organized
about eight months ago, and has now
about 200 members, holding stock to the
amount of $88,600.
Books were opened last month for sub
scriptions of stock in the 2d series, and
iu a few days 280 shares were taken. At
the Directors meetiug on Tuesday, it
was ordered that the books be re-opened
until the 1st November, in order lo give
an opportunity toothers who were known
to be desirious of taking stock. At lhat
meeting, also, four applications for loans
were passed on and granted, amounting
to $2700. Including applications pre
viously granted the total sum of applica
tions accepted but not yet paid is $4,600.
The monthly receipts on stock now
amounts to about $1,000; and the inter
est on loans already made to about $40
It will thus be seen that the institution
is confering valuable aid to those who
wish to build, and must very soon be felt
by the community in its material pro
gress. The loans already made but yet
unpaid will assist in the erection of eight

went out I u it Saturday evening for an
hour's sport among the bfrds. They are
plentiful, but are too ybongfor shooting
purposes. They are mere
squealers as j
the young birds are called, and really do !
not know enough to make it sport to
shoot them. If let alone for another
month they would be in fine condition.
But just t here is the trouble. They will
not be let alone, but will be killed out by
thoughtless boys and pot hunters. Those
who have their lands posted should for-
fbid shoot i in: even to'their friends until
after the first of November.

The Graded School Trouble.
PROF, kizer's statement:
We have a rule not to allow pupils to
go on tne railroad bridge; it is known
and observed by the school. At recess
oh Thursday 1 isaw Frank Tuttle stand
ing on the bridge watching an approach
ing train. I called to him in the presence
of about a hundred boys to come off the
bridge. He looked at me and must have
heard me, but did not respond. I re
peated the call and still he did not obey.
I went to him and ordered him in the
house; I followed and began administer
ing what I deemed a proper punishment
lor his offense against the rule of the
school aud my verbal demand for bim to
obey it. He began to resist and I took a
better hold and administered the punish
ment. His denance of authority was in
the presence of a large number of pupils
and it was necessary to give him a good
whipping as an example to the school.
The boy resisted on a former occasion.
and is one of the worst boys in the school
to keep within proper bounds. I deny
that I struck the boy in any way so as to
leave any external evidence: as the bov
did that himself by running against a
desk. 1 deny ever having abused a bov
in school. I do keep good order, but
I do not inflict excessive punishment
REV. MR. TUTTLE'S STATEMENT:
I was a little late gettina home last
Thursday and found my wife Waiting for
me. tone met me at the door very much
excited and said that Frank was in the
house very much abused; Professor has
given him a violent beating. I immediate
ly proceeded to examine the boy and
found tnat his left wrist was considera
bly swollen and bruised; the same arm.
fuear the shoulder was also considerably
bruised and bipod -shot i.e. the outer
skin was broken and bfood had gathered
unger it; there was a bruise on his fore
head just under the edge of his hair, that
was very much swollen at the time
aoout the size or a small guinea egg;
on his hips and thigh there were quite a
number ot wales: two having cut through
the skin. In addition to the evidences of
severity already mentioned, there were
blue and black marks on his limbs the
size 01 a silver nan dollar. This covers
the external evidence of the beating, but
the boy complained that evening aud
night very much Of pains in bis back,
which he said resulted from his being
thrown violently on a bench. I was not
disposed to precipitate a difficulty, so
sent Prof. Kizer a message asking him
to come over, (we are near neighbors,)
and grant me an interview. To this re
quest he made no reply, and failed to
allow me to see him before Saturday
morning, which you will remember was
after publication, of the matter had been
made. I further state that the publica
tion 1 in, the Evening Examiner was sub
stantially correct as to the injury done
THE COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE,
The School Committee met on last
Monday evening and heard the statements
of Rev. Mr. Tuttle and Prof. Kizer. They
then requested these gentlemen to retire.
After some deliberation they post
poned the further investigation of the
matter until next Monday evening (2oth)
when they will take testimony and come
to a decision.
The statements of the gentlemen are
given to the public. Both are men of
strict integrity. We shall not comment
on what they have stated: the public
may draw its own inferences. There is
one phase of the question which we think
needs the careful consideration of the
School Committee, and that is the ad visa
bility "of continuing corporal punishment
in the school. Iwery disturbance that
has ever been associated with the sehoo
has arisen from this cause. Y ould
not be well to relieve the male teachers
of the right to inflict corporal punish
ment? Discipline does not necessarily
mean ruling by the rod. Iu the great
free schools of the north teachers are not
allowed to use the rod at all, and they
have the best . disciplined schools in
America. It is discipline by intellectua
force, not physical domination.
But there are those who argue that this
will not work here, where all classes
mingle in a school. Surely the the chil
dren of the people of Salisbury are no
worse than the street arabs of a city.
Should the committee not, however, con
cur in this opinion, perhaps they will
take other means to restore public confi
dence in the reasonableness of" the punish
ment inflicted at the school. They must
needs know that there must be a change
from present modes. In order to main
tain good discipline it is necessary to
have the co-operation of parents. To allow
the parent an opportunity to aid in the
disciplinary government of the school,
would it not be well, if not to abolish
corporal punishment, to restrict it to a
limit of say ten lashes with a single
switch. In cases where greater punish
ment is necessary, let the pupil be sus
pended; in case of resistance, the pupil
might be suspended or even, in extreme
cases, expelled. This method would at
once enlist the parent on the side of the
school, because he could not afford to
have the child lose the benefits of school
traininir. The committee could easily
inaugurate a method of this kind which
would greatly strengthen the school, and
at the same time relieve the teachers of
the necessity of administering severe
punishment upon unruly pupils, and also
relieve the committee ot tne unpleasant
task of clearing up these occurrences.
The committee is expected to find a way
out of the trouble, and they will doubt
less act with wisdom when' they consider
the question. There is too much at stake
to admit of dilatory action, and the com
mittee will probably settle the question
at their Monday evening meeting.
This comment is made with the sincere
desire to promote ther best interests of the
school aud to set the committee to think
ing, hoping that what ever is done will
be for the bet and that the school will
continue to be what it has been, a bless
ing to all clac? in the tow n,

A New Copper Prospect,
owned by Gwyn, Hanna & Co.. is situa
ted in Wilkes county, on the waters of
Roaring River, four miles north of Trap
Hill. The vein is seven- feet wide, and is
almost solid chalcopyrite iron and cop
per sulphide. The property contains
about oOO aeres, and this bold vein ex
tends all the wav across it
has been sunk to the depth of 80 feet on
the vein. A tunnel was started in the
side of the mountain to cut the vein at a
consiaerabje depth below the surface,
and was driven about 100 feet in the di
rection of the vein.
At a branch, at the
foot of the hill, they found the vein cross-
ing at a lower depth than the tunnel,
and they drove on the vein at this point.
The ore seems to be homogeneous. This
property has a fine body of timber stand
ing on it, and has a plentiful supply of
ood water. It is a place that needs capi
tal to work it up, and those desiring to
get particulars, such as assays, value of

Work has been resumed at the Morris
Mountain mine in Montgomery county,
by Truman Coman, Esq., formerly of
N. Y., but for the last ten years, a resi
dent of Thomasyille, N. C. Morris Moun
tain property is near Eldorado postoffi.ee,
and is being, cleared and prepared for
regular work. Mr. Coman has interest
ed some New York gentlemen with him
in this property, and its development lies
in the near future. The gold is free, and
is generally found in the Huronian slate,
and fn the quartz veins which are found
in this formation. The mine produces
rich specimens of free gold, which some
times mislead as to the value of a deposit.
BILES MINE STILL PRODUCING.
The Biles mines, operated by Crowell
& Ivy, near Bilesville, in Stanly county,
continues to produce. Work has been in
progress here on a small scale for more
than a year, and with prospects for a con
tinuation for some t ime to come. Owing
to the limited amount invested, the re
turns have been small, yet amply remu
nerative for the expenditure. There
is room for expansion at this property,
and a chance for capital to find a profita

Union county, has spent several days in
examining that property, and may possi
bly have the tract carefully explored;
this "Survey" lies between the Davis and
Howie mines, (a distance of four or five
miles,) and as both of these are noted
localities, it is not unlikely tnat some
thing good may be found in the interval
The poliey of this company, which also
owns large tracts in Rutherford and Polk
counties lias been to reserve mining
rights in selling their lands, and hence it
has resulted, though probably not inten
ded, that mining has been discouraged.

is much the same as for the last two
