Capt. Flaviel W. Foster baa recently

Mr. James C. Stevenson for a retail
grocery in connection with his principal
house on Market street. He has ,already
fitted the store up in excellent style and
has filled it with a stock of desirable
goods. This gives the Northern portion
of Jhe city quite a lively and thriving ap
pearance, especially at night ;when the
8 tores on that block are illuminated.

The lessee of the Obera House has had

This troupe performed Pijaafore at the
Opera House last night to a large, fash
ionable and delighted audience. The
play was put upon the stage in an excel
lent manner, the scenery representing the
harbor of Portsmouth, England, with
ships at anchor and the city in the dis
tance, which, with its many lights and
the moon riding high in the heavens, in
the night scene, presented a beautiful
The performance in all its particulars
was very much superior to those which
have preceded it. The acting was better,
the vbcalizttiou better and the
harmonies perfect. Fay Templeton,
as Ralph Ho ikatra , did some
very fine acting j and singing, and in the
duetts with Miss Inez Soxton, thej Jose
phine, the combined efforts were peculiarly
sweet. Miss Alice Vane, as Buttercup
rendered her parts in excellent style aiid
voice ; ilr. Buckley, as SZr Joseph Porter
appeared with all the ab3urdi;y and
gjotesqueness intended- in the coucep
tipn of the play. Mr. Kendall, the Cap'
tain, has a full baritone voice, and sung in
correct tuue. His fine forn set off to ad
vantage the part he assumed. Mr. Crane,
as Dick Deadeye, was the only one who
has visited our city who has given any ex
pression, eith-ir in voice or action, to that
difficult but important part of the opera.
He was superb iu.bth, as was manifested
by tbe applause which greeted many of the
salient points of his pait.
During the perormnce Mr. aud Miss
Fuller entertained the audieuce with a
dance which was executed with exquisite
grace, and was raptuously applauded.
We must not forget to mention with
our unqualified praise the performance of
the cornet solo by Mr. Duffy and the
Xylopnone solo by Mr. Andre. They were
both simply superb. i
The company performs to-night a new
piece entitled "Prince Napoleon or the

a matinee when they will again perform

r or more tnan a year past the mail
route 1 from Troy, in Montgomery county,
and Bostick's Mills has been robbed ,to
such an extent that it became almost im
possible to have any valuable letter pass
over the line in either direction. Sus
picion pointiug very! strongly to . the
carrier, Eli Sanders, he was arrested on
the 26th lust. He admitted his guilt,
and his confession indicated a wholesale
robbery of the mails for the space of time
indicated.1 In secluded, p!ac?s ia the
woods along the line of the route were
found a large number of envelopes which
he had broken open aud dispoifed of their
contents. The offender is now in jail
awaiting his trial for the crime before
the proper tribunal, where it may be
presumed hewi.l be meted the justice the
crime dvserves.

By Water to HerrlnssvUle.
Capt . R. P. Paddison made a trip last
week by steamer up the head waters of
Black River which has never before been
accomplished, much leas attempted, by
any) one. The steamer chosen for the
I purpose was a little steam yacht, the
Oklahoma, bound from Martha's ViueytrJ
to some point in South America, which
has been in our port for a week or ten
days past. She draws but three feet of
water and wa6 therefore .well calculated
for the undertaking, as there had been a
recent rise of about three. fee: of water in
the river. ,
' Capt. Paddison left Point Caswell on
the Oklahoma Jast Thursday, and re
turned on Saturday. He penetrated as
far as Herringsville, in Sampson county
which is 80 miles abov Point Ciswell
and sixty above Beatty's Bridge, hereto
fore considered the head of ' navigation on
Black River. The Oklahoma went clear
over the whole route, not having once
touched bottom. She made an average
of 6 miles, an hour going up and 10 miles
an hour coming down the river. (
( Capt. Paddison was everywhere greeted
With warm congratulations on the success
oi his undertaking and on his s fe return
from his "voyage of discovery." He is
of the opinion that if a small appropria
tion could be secured from j
water route to Wilmington,
Congress a
open for
probably nine months in the year, would
be at the disposal of the people of Samp
son county.

Magistrate's Court.
Andrew Murphy was the cause of Ned
Murphy's arrest to-day Upon the charge
of assault; they both appeared before a
Trial Jus.'ce. The case was dismissed
upon payment of costs. !
Ned Murphy was at the same time and
place arraigued upon a pea".e warraut.
This case was also dismissed upon pay
ment 'of costs. Ned Murphy then in
turn had Andrew Murphy arrested upon
a warrant for assault which case was
likewise dismissed upon payment of costs,
when the legal proceedings of the! Murphy s
for the time being came to an end. E
This peculation which is so frequent, is
often the result of this speculation which
is so common.
