Selling Property far Taxes.
In iccordanc with a previous advertised
notice of the JCity Treasurer, fifty-three
pieces of real estate property were put up
at auction at the Qourt House door to-day
for back taxes Constable. Carr did. the
crying and the property was all knocked
down to the city. The sale will be con
tinued from day to day until all the
delinquents are disposed of in this way
unless they sooner walk up to the Cap
tain's office and settle all arrearages.
The Lecture To Jflglit
We trust .that there will be a fine
audience present at the Opera House this
evening to greet Dr. Wilson in the ad
dress which he is to deliver for the benefit
of the Wilmiogton Library Association.
Dr. Wilson's well-earned reputation as a
thinking man, a ripe scholar and an ac
complished speaker should guarantee a
large audience. There is but one possible
drawback to the occasion and that is the
weather, an excuse which is always ready
at hand to father many sins of omission.
Prices One Year Ago and To -Day.
One year ago cotton was selling in this
market at 9 cents for middling; to-day
the same grade of cotton is quoted firm
on change at 12J cents. .
Spirits turpentine was quoted and
selling one year ago at 26 cents per gal
Ion; to-day sales are reported at 43$
cents. Crude turpentine sold at $1.75 per
bbl for yellow dip this time last yeaandf
to-day it is bringing $2 55 per bbl. for
the same quality.
Then'why, we ask, should business be
dull and money scarce? The fact is we
believe that such is not ' the case. Gut
that there Is plenty of business, and ,
though money may not be altogether quite
plentiful, enough to suit every one, still,
we are inclined to think that there are
sufficient funds arc und and in hand to
meet the demands of trde. everything
has advanced since last year, it seems, ex
cept the salaries of some poor clerks, and
the subscription and advertising rates of
newspapers. We pay for paper to day
00 per cent advance on the price we paid
last year for the same quality.

be held in the town of Smithville on the
first Monday in May to consider whether
the town shall be "Wet or Dry." A
petition, signed by over one hundred

Sampson county Items.
Our friends at Kewkirk's Bridge, in
Franklin township, Sampson county, as
we learn from, a correspondent at that
place, have recently witnessed the closing
examination of a v.ry successful school
fiught there during1 the past
winter -by Miss Hannah Seavey. The
exercises of the day were in every way
highly satisfactory to the pareuts of the
pupils ad patrons of the scljooL
were Iq attendance bpon the Interesting
occasion, ine recitations were com
mendable throughout and evidenced bard
study upon the the part of the pupi's
and thorough and patient care on the part
of the teacher.
After the exercises had been concluded,
Mr. Nicholas Fennell, who was present,
being called upon, made an admirable
speech, in which he urged the manifold
advantages and bl ssings of a good,
thorough, practical education. Mr. Fen
nell was followed by Rev. Mr. Marable,
who also earnestly impressed upon the
young people present the necessity tor
study; that they might be the better
prepared for the duties, caresj trials and
responsibilities of life. Both speeches
were listened; to with profound attention
by all present and withort doubt will
have !a beneficial effect upon the minds of
the young, for whom they i were more
