A Gootl Joke.
Last night some communistic individ
uals who believed in a more equal dis
tribution of property, became possess
ed with the idea that the editoriaj
fraternity were having too niauy of th
good things of this world, and made a
tour of inspection to aatisiy themselves
on this point. They visited the store
room ot Mr. John Mclaurin, editor of
the Xorth Carolina Presbyterian, where
they adopted the equalizing process by
taking the flour, a ham aud several
other articles. There was a jug in the
room containing some wine, and they
flade a division by drinking the wine
and leaving him "the vessel, which was
eminently fair and satisfactory on their
part. These well-fed newspaper editors
must reflect that they have no right to
all the good things. What right has an
editor to flour when corn meal is cheap,
or to hams when shoulders would cost
but about half as 'much, or to wirfc
when corn whiskey is. abundant?

The Windsor Theatre had a full
house last night. . There are few per
formances more calculated' to put the

not diluted fun, but a nervous, restless,

acrobatic and pantomimic are curiously
combined. It recalls the old feats jot
the Ravels, and since them we have had
nothing of the class that is so good as
