Take the Paper.
X. P. WILLIS.
Copied from, a scrap book dated 1853.3
Whyi-aon'l you take the parcra !
They're the-life of my delight;
Kicept-aboat election time, ,
Aid then I read for spite.;
Subscribe, you cannot lose a cent :
Why should you be. afraid ?
For cash thus paid is money lent
On interest, four fold paid.
Go then and .take the papers,
And pay to-day nor pay delay,
And my word it is inferred,
YbuH live till you are gray,
, t ' ' .
An Id newspaper friend of mine,
While dying from a cough,
Desired-to hear the latest nes, '
While he was dying off
1 took the paper, and I read .
Of some new Pills in force;
He bought a box and is he dead?
No hearty as a horst.
1 knew a printer's debtor once,
- -Racked with scorching fever,
Who swore to pay her debt next day,
If her distress would leave bcr.
Next morrting she was at her work,
Divested of her pain,
- But did forget td pay her debt,
Till taken down again. -
"Here, Jessie, take these silver wheels,
And pay the printer now !" .
She slept and slept, and then awoke,
With health upon her brew, ,' . - .
I knew Jfwo men, as much alike, 7
As e'e ypu saw two stumps;
And do phrenologist could find
A difference in their bumps. y
One takes the papers and his life
Is happier than a King's;
His childeti all can read and write
And .alk of men and things.
The other took no paper, and
While strolling through the wood,
A tree tell down and broke his crown,
And killed him, "very good."
Had he been reading of the news,
At homelike neighborJim,
I'll bet accent that accident
" Would not hare happened him.
. Why don't you take the papers?
3n'or from the printer sneak,
Because j-ou borrow of his boy
A paper every week.
For he whr takes the papers
And pays his bills when due,
Can live in peace with God and man,
And w ith the printer too.
-. , North Carolina.
The steady advancemet of North
Carolina on nil-lines oL industry for
which nature has provided abundant
facilities, ought to occasion general re
joicing among lir citizens, and stimu
late them to renewed efforts. rJut
that old State is so staid and conserva-
ve, and has marched onward in such
quiet, unostentatious fashion, that it is
doubtful whether many of her people,
except tbose jofficials whose duties keep
them well informed, have any idea of
the grandeur of her progress, or of the
aluvost infinite I variety of ways in
which it is manifested. The reports of
the several executive departments of
the State government are filled with
valuable information, but there is too
much of it ar-d covering too wide a
range ef subjects, to admit of anything
beyoud-a general summary.
These statistical reports show :
First great, and growing finacial
strength, accompanied consequently by
increasing credit lor alt btate, county
and municipal securities. Second an
extension of the plants of many estab
lished industries and. the introduction
of a great variety of new one. Third
improvements in agriculture by di
versifying crops; by introducing finer
grades of horses, cattle, sheep and
swine; by the adoption of such sjTsteins
of feeding and caring for stoek as
science hits taught and experience jus
tified; by saving barn yard manures
and compost materials, and using com
mercial fertilizers only as an adjunct
to them; by increasing the sorghum
crop and its products; by paying great
er attention to small fruits, orchards
and vineyards; by adopting improved
implements iind machines; by studying
and practicing farm economics once
greatly neglected; by holdiug farmers'
institutes ind reading the best agricul
tural publications ineludingthe excel
lent ones issued in that State." Fourth
while North Carolina has from co
lonial times provided liberally for the
education of her children and yontlK
she is doing now more than ever.before
in that direction, and the legislature
now in session is expected to act favor
ably upon the! wise suggestions of Ma

intendent of education, and furnwh-j)

vested" largely m forest lands, mines,
water fjoWers and extensive farms, and
are now engaged in their development.
Sixth ttuany miles have been added to
the State's system of railroads, and
manjr more will be completed during
the current year. These are furnish
ing rapid transportation to regions
never before blessed with jit, and are
opening up lands rich in all natural
resources to enterprising settlers, and
nre thus adding largely to the wealth

enacted four years since, has already
produced an appreciable uni beneficial
effect in the communities where they
are located, and the day is not distant
when there will be one m every con
siderable'center of population. Eighth
rthe new 'mills and factories of aH
kinds, which have absorbed lare sums
of domestic capital and brought in much
from elsewhere, are- generally paying
handsome profit, and are also creating
home markets for farm and garden
products by increasing greatly- the
numbers of wage earners who must
buy most 'of the. food, consumed by
themselves - and their families. The
weeklv output of wages has also in
creased perceptibly the trade of retail

Asheville, Hickory, WilmingtonItore-,
headrFayetteville and many other pla
ces, ana the improvements made in
such other places as the well-known
Yarbore at Kaleigh, and the Central at
Charlotte, together with the fame of
such health resorts as Southern Pines,
are attracting to the State many thou
sands of winter tourists, health-seekers
and sportsmen. Tenth. The fisheries
of the State, amounting to some $3,
000,000 annually, are a prolific source

Winslow, U, S. N., acting in co-opera
tion with the department of agricul
ture, which has paid the expenses of
this great work. "Nearly one-fifth of
this extensive field has been sold to
northern and local oystermen, and the
remainder can be bought on favorable
terms. Finally. While North Caro

is generally understood in these days,
an while her prosperity would be
tiiucri more rapid it sne would pursue
the; policy inaugurated by Governor
Jarvis, and give in New York or some
other northern city a similar exposi

sources to that made in Boston in 1S83,

pround of their State and rejoice in its

j wins, was among the passengers on
CapK T. S. CJarkson s train on the
Charlotte, Columbia and Agusta road
yesterday. She, for the twin is noth
ing more nor less than adouble-headed
woman, was oil her way to her home
in Whiteville, Columbus county, this
State. She was born at Whiteville in
1851, and Barnum has missed one of
the chances of his lifetime in never
having seen her. She is possibly a
greater curiosity than the Siamese
twins, for Margaret, as she is called, is
a woman and a half. It is rather late
iii life for her to entertain proposals
for matrimony, but should any one
ever marry her, he would get more than
a better half.
i Margaret was a great

neople at the same time. A lady gave
ter a piece of cake and she fed it to
the left had mouth, and while that
mouth was enjoying the delicacy, the
other mouth was talking to the pas
sengers around her, ' To see her in a
ear sea, a casual glance would make
her out to be two women wrapped in
a! single shawi; sitting with their heads
close together. She has two heads and
two necks and the combination join
together between her shoulders. He
body is the same as that of an ordinary
person, but she has a pair of extra legs
that are, however, too short to do her
any service. Her two heads look al
most exactly alike, although one is
"somewhat smaller than the other. She
eats with both months aud has to teed
each one impartially. When she
drinks coffee, she will give halt a cup
to one mouthi and half to the other.
She is noW'iih her fortieth year, and
has traveled extensively in the eastern
ftart of this State and in South Caro

close to honiipfwhere all the little ne
groes are afraid of her, and are made
to behave upou the threats by their
mammies that they "will send for aunt

Much has been said lately on the
feasibility of changing the mode f

A demand for a .change in' the sys

We do notjtinderstand why the city

The city levies a tax of 10 cents on
every bale of cotton weighed at that
platform which amounts yearly to
about 2,5(K), a sum mere than treble
the salary of the cotton weigher.
Why take this money from the cotton
Our city authorities say that the
cotton raisers should ba willing to pay
that sniHli sum to keep up the city
streets that they use. Well perhaps
the cotton Jra-isers are willing to do
that, but why tax the cotton men' for
using the city streets and not the
wood haulers, milk men and all other
foreign traversers. Cotton raisers gen
erally come to town j on clear days
while wood haulers generally come in
bad weather and therefore " do much
more damage to the streets. Why. not
tax all butter, eggs, chickens and pota
toes? Why discriminate against the
cotton raiser ?
The city may as well establish atoal
weigher.and a meat weigher as a cotton
weigher. We think the buyers and
sellers of cotton should be left alone by
the Legislature and Municipal authori
ties. Cotton weighing is nobody s'bus
iness but those who buy aud sell it.
The dealers should be left alone like
dealers in meat, corn, hay, coal and
other articles, to do their own weighing
