Johnson, the senior member of the

active, honorable and successful mer
cantile life of many years, to enjoy in
his declining days the comforts to be

deserved competency. Mr. William

with which forquite a number of years
he has been intimately connected. lie
is young in years, but has had much
experience, which, together with a
decided bnsiness capacity, an active
mind and a driving, go-ahcad disposi

There are three railroads in this sec
tion of the State which are owned and
operated by private individuals in the
transaction of their business. Of two
of these, viz: the road at Chadbourn, in
Columbus county, which is owned by
Messrs J. II. Chadbourn & Co., of this
city, and the road at Bogue, which is
owned and operated by Col. II. B.
Short, of Lake Waccamaw. Columbus
county, we have spoken at length and
in detail on several occasions. The
third road is from Alma, Rob
eson county, to Alfordsvillc, -Robeson
county, and is about twelve miles in
length. It is called the Alma & Little
Rock Railroad, and has been in opera
tion about two years. It was built aud
is owned by Messrs Wilkinson & Fore,
now of this city. It was constructed as
a tram road for the transportation oi
timber and himber, but after a short
time iron rails were put in and an en
gine, passeugcr and freight cars added
so that it now docs quite a- business in
passenger and froight, aside from the
particular purpose for which it was
built. The owners arc extending the
road, by degrees, towards South Caro

The scene of Ibis Shakespearean com
edy was laid in Illyria. and the seacoast
near it. 'Sebastian and his sister Viola
were twins of remarkable resemblance
to each other. They were shipwrecked
male attire and under the name of.Ca
rio, she entered the service of Duke
Orsino, with whom she fell ia love
But the Duko Juvcd Olivia, who, ou ac
count of the death of a brother, had
foresworn tho society of men for seven
years. Viola, as Ccsario. carries mes-
' sages from the Duke to Olivia, and tho
! latter falls iu lovo with the disguised
uic?seugcr, and declares her affection,
which Ccsario (Viola) cannot return,
being of tho same sex and also in love
with the Duko. ' Iu tho meantime her
brother. Sebastian, had been rescued by
another vessel and was brought to Illy
ria. Olivia seeing Sebastian, mistakes
him for Cesaria and loads hi in with
caresses, which were promptly returned
and the two wero married. Viola then
makes herself known as the sister of
Sebastian, and by her womanly charm,
spirit and faithful love, wins the heart
of the Duke and on the same day be
comes his bride.
The foregoing is a very brief synop
sis of the leading characters and inci
dents in the play which is to be present
ed at the Opera House on Wednesday
night, tho 30th inst. in which Modjeska
assumes the role of Viola. She will be
supported by an excellent company and
we hope that a house crowded to reple
tion may greet this gi I ted woman in one
of Shakespeare' greatest comedies.

This.didtinguishcd brother and Odd
fellow recently visited Princeton on in
vitation of the Library Association, and
delivod his famous lecture entitled "In
visible Some People." It is a lecture
that cannot fail to interest all that hear
it. There are sublime passages in it that
will stir to admiration the soul 1 ot any
one who has a love lor the beautiful.
It aboujds with wit, and is full of home
thrusts at the enemies of mankind .
A little alter 4 toVlock j yesterday
morning some thief attempted to steal
an overcoat from the residence of Police
Officer Samuel Howland. on Seventh,
between Princess and Chestnut streets.
Officer Howland had juat come off duty
and laid down for a nap. his overcoat
hanging upon the back of a chair, near
one of the windows, lie heard some
one come on the piazza and soon
after heard one ot the windows raised.
It was soon lowered, but in a few moi
menu it was raised again and a stick
put under it to hold it up. In the mean
time Mr. Rowland had gotten his pistol
ready, and pretty soon he saw a stick
reaching out for the overcoat and fas
ten into tho collar- when he jumped up
and the would-be thief dropped the
stick and ran, pursued by two shots
from tho "officer's revolver, which.
however, had no further effect than to
hasten the scoundrel's speed.
