Is Oleomargarine Sold In this Market?
The above question is often asked us,
but as we are not experts we really can
not answer it. Persons at the North who
claim to be experts and. who say they
can readily tell batter from the spurious
article, have proven themselves on a test
either to.be blowhards or only good judges
of butter. Oleomargarine is made to re
semble butter so closely, aa well as to taste
color and smell, that from what we can
learn it takes a chemical analysis to defin
aitely ascertaia the one from the other.
Tbejmly safeguard we have against the
use of oleomargarine in this community is
the grocery men of this city. They gen
erally know the character of the Northeia
jobbers whom they buy of, and if they
will use due precaution, as no doubt they
do, we may be spared from eating dirty
tallow and beef stall grease, which is
known to the trade as oleomargarine, but
which is masquerading around the pount
try as butter.

two n)iks, encrapiug there one night
near the barn on the old Howard place. I
in said that, he also came to Wilmington,
but, there is no reason for believing this to

hid tlie "datinsi to visit Stnithville. and
capturtd there, from Geu. Hberi'a hf ad
quarters, Capt. Keliy, that ofticur's Insjec-
tor-General. The following particulars
of this feat we fiad in the Philadelphia
Press. It is correct in every substantial
poir t just as we heard it from tbe lips of
Lieut. He belt, who, to use his own ex
pression, thought that 'every Yankee out
of hell was in bmithville that night.' The
following is the account alluded to :
Tbe most dariog feat of all Lieutenant
Cushiug's many exp ills is yet to be told.
I allude to the capture of General Louis
Hebert's Inspector General, Captain Kel
ley, right out of headquarters, within
forty feet of a rrison oi 200 men and
five pieces of heavy artillery in the winter
of 1864, at SmithviDe, near the mouth
of Cape Fear River, North Carolina. The
writer of this wasAssistantAdjutant Gen
eral's Clerk on tbe staff of General He
bert, commanding the defenses at the
mouth of the Cpe Fear River, headquar
ters at Smithvilie, N C, and bad his
sleeping apartments iu the same building
where the office was. The General's
bouse was just across the street, In the

The river was in front of all. Lieuten

or so above the Smithvllle Battery, Fort
Pender, came up into the' village, past
the garrison quarters and across the
street it to General lit bert 'a house.
The house was a large building with a
piazza in front. It was about 11 o'clock
at night. The commissioned staff of
General Hebert consisted of Major Wil
liam D. Hardeman, Assistant Adjutant
General; Captain John Kelly, Inspector
General, and Lieutenant Valery Hebert,
aid-decamp. The General and bis aid
had their sleeping apartmeats up-stairs;
Major Hardeman and Captain Kelly down
stairs in the first room next to the north
entrance. The two Ceo federate officers
were undressed and about to retire when
Major Hardeman, hearing tbe footsteps
on the piazza, and supposing they were
made by his servant, who sometimes
frequented the front piazza at night,
raised a sash to bid him retire when s
heavy navy pistol was thrust into his
face and a demand to surrender made in
a firm tone. But Hardeman was of iron
nerve and great bravery. He saw and
comprehended the situation at r a glance,
and pushing the pistol to one side, he
threw down the sash and escaped out oi
the back entrance of the house, telling
Captain Kelly, as he passed out, to foU
low him, as 'the enemy are upon
us Kelly did not comprehend, or was
pushed too closely by the Federals, and
failed to follow and was captured. Cush
ing, finding that some one bad escaped,
at once secured Kelly in his night-clothes
and beat a retreat to his boat, and sue-,
seeded in getting back to his fleet safely
with his prisoner. General Hebert hap
pened to be in Wilmington that night.
Lieutenant Hebert heard the noise below,
but had the presence of mind to keep
quiet, and in the hurry escaped capture.
Next day, under a flag, a note was sent
off by Captain Kelly to Majwr Hardeman,
who met Lieutenant Cushing on the beach
below Oatwell. Captain Kelly's trunk
was sent to him, and Lieutenant Cushing
expressed to Mj r Hardeman his sincere
regret that General Hebert had been
absent, and hoped when he next paid
him a vbit he would find him, at home;
he was somewhat consoled, however, In
finding bis Inspector General, Captain
Kelly. Thus ended this most daring and

Rtv. Dr. Wilson's Lecture.
It was an unusually fine and intelligent
audience which assembled at the Opera
House last night to listen to the lecture
of Rev. Dr. Wilson. The subject chosen
was'Succeps and is one of the lectures
of a course gotten up for the benefit of
the Library Association of this city.
The lectures was introduced in a few
felicitous remarks by Mr. C. H. Robinson.
Dr. Wilson said that although success
was a natural aspiration of the human
mind it was not easy to describe its true
character nor to point out .the way by
which it could always be acheivtd. It
was a term usually applied to those
who had become celebrated or noted by a
sudden rise to affluence or position, with
but little Regard to the means h raMrh
either was attained. This the speaker
. , . . i
conceited to be not real success, and he
proceeded to point out what constitutes a
genuine and desirable success, which with
a wellmlirected effort was within the reach
of every one.
The lecture 'was instructive and in
teresting throughout; was graceful in
style and scholarly In its language and
was listened to with profound attention
and admiration by ths large assemblage
of intelligent, cultured and reSned per.
sons who were present.
I George Hill, the colored individual
mentioned in the Review yesterday after
noon as being engaged in a little irregular
transaction in regard to , some
beeswax, and also a tarpaulin, the prop-?
erty ef Messrs. Kidder & Sons, was ar
raigned this morning before the Mayor,
charged with larceny in two cases. The
first case calle J was the tarpaulin case,
which Mr. G. P. Kidder testified as being
the property of the firm of Messrs. E.
Kidder & Sons, which had been stolen
from their premises on Friday night cr
early Saturday morning last. Mr. Wat
son, proprietor of an establishmen t " on
North Water street, testified that the
tarpaulin was carried to his place by a
colored drayman, Tom McClammy
early Saturday morning, and McClammy
testified that George Hill was the persoL
who employed him to take the tarpaulin
on his dray Saturday morning from the
foot of Princess street to Mr. Watson's
shop to have it disposed of. .
In the case charging defendant with
the larceny of beeswax, the facts elicit
ed were substantially the same as publish
ed in the Review yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Madden, of the Steamship Company,
and Messrs Sam Bear, Jr., and E. F
Johnson corroborated the statement pub
lished, which was in effect that a bag o1
wx, marked to. air. Morris Baar.vras re
Odlved by the steamer Worth State, tn 1
dacharged npon the wharf and anr
wards stolen; that the same wax waa . f
fired for sale by the defendant, George
Hill, to Mr. Johnson, who seeing the
mark upon the big Induced Hill to go to
Mr. Bear's store with him, where ha wes
given over to the hands of a policeman.
After hearing tbe evidence the Mavor

prisoner was committed. The Court then
