We are having dry weather- now, but
tle indications are lavorable for rain this
niomiug. The wheat crop is all housed,
aud threshing has begau iu some parts of
the county. The crop is generally good,
and ia most cases they yield satisfactory.
Corn is looking well; farmers have been
working as faithfully a3 I ever knew, and
they have Gen. Green pretty well sub
dued. If the good Lord sends the early
and latter rains, there will bo a good
crop of com made. Cotton is said to be
doing well but is backward and will be
late. If the fall be late a reasonably fair
crop will be made.
Mr. Bruce Linster, who was so badly
bruised up in the railraad wreck is up
aud was on the street yesterady. The
probability 13 that he will be able to try
her again in a tew days.
John Woods, a white man about 2D
years of age, was iu town last Wednes
day evening. He imbibed freely of "tu-
lu" (the curse ot this town aud commu
nity) and started for home wit h is three
miles from here on the Junebux road.
His mangled body 'was fouud iiext, morn-
iug ou the railroad, having been run over

The county commissioners were in
session yesterday. Their principal work
was, passing claims, di awing jurors for
next term of court, and meeting with
the assessors of the various townships in
order to equalize the valuation of real es
tate as much so as possible. The asses
sors have completed their work, which
will cost the county about;$l,200. In
most of the townships the Valuation of
real estate is (somewhat advanced, but
riot enough to make much difference in
the amount of tax derived from the
same. Yesterday about 1 o'clock, p. in.,
the alarm, of fire was- souuded. It was
discovered that tho depot was on tire.
Men aud boys rushed pcllaUiell to the
scene, j All business was sujkoded and
thereWas a general rush to the depot.
The depot buildiugs were all destroyed
except the uew passenger depot which was
saved, i Spontaneous conbustion is sup
posed to be the origin of he fire. The
greater part of the freight was paved.

constantly being found and hardly a
week passes but some State paper men
tions the finding of a piece worth from
one hundred to five hundred dollars.
McDowell has a good reputation as a
mineral county. Many fine gem stones
have been found there, among them
being diamonds, rubies, sapphires, em
eralds, hyacinths,, garnets, topaz ame-
miysts, &c, &c. The.-;c have nearly all
been fouud by accident, nothing like a
systematic search ever having been made
for them. Thousands of dollars worth of
gold has been taken out of the creeks and
water courses in that county, and we
have m the hies of the Watchman of
1SS7, au account of over seven pounds of
pure gold being blown out at one blast
in Muddy Creek Valley, which seems to
be about the centre of that district.
We know nothing about the property
of the North Carolina Gold Mining and
Bullion Company. Several large north
ern companies own valuable properties
in that part of ihc State.
a beautiful gem.
A gentleman living in New England,
but a -North Carolinian by birth, writes
to the Scotland Neck Democrat that as he
was going through oue of the principal
streets of Providence, R. I., he was at
tractcd by a haudso.ne collection of gems
in. a show window of a large jewelry
establishment, and says: "In the centre
of the table was the chief attraction to
me. It was a huge crystal of emerald
about 1 inches thick and 3 inches long,
weighing eight ounces and of a rich
green color. uy tne side ot tins lay
eleven diamonds and other cut gems
about the size of a pea and very brilliant.
A card on the table said they were found
in Alexander county, N. C."
The emerald spoken of above was
found by Professor Hidden a few years
ago, and is the largest and finest in the
world, save one. Tho largest is owned
by the Duke of Devonshire, and is a
South American stone.
