An educated Bostonian was in to
see us not many weeks ago. He ap
preciated fully tte ' county govern
ment question when we explained it
to him. He did not understand it.
He was like some North Carolinians
holding to jan abstract principle,
while willing jto oppress and to de
spoil fifty thousand white voters that
this abstract principle might operate
without conferring a positive benefit
upon a single white or colored voter.
We showed him how 'a change in the
system would put at once the white
tax-payers and property-owners under
the control oi the negroes in twenty-five
counties or more. We asked
him how would he and his Republi
can friends in Boston relish the policy
that would place the wealth of the
city at the disposal of the lowest and
most - vicious element. : He said it
was horrible to contemplate, and that
already they had had a sharp taste of
it in the Irish jeote,which he said was
Democratic, and that men they did
not want were thus foisted upon them.
But the case is not parallel. The
Irish of Boston do vote pretty solidly
for Democrats, but. BostoV is not
worse governed than cities under the
control of Republicans. The Boston
Republican's idea of the viciousness
of the Irish was characteristic. They
did not vote the right way . to please
him and others', ancl henVe they were
sneered at. "J .vjj -V'.'' r ;- -
But the Bostonian was candid
enough to admit that it was alto
gether natural! and reasonable that
Democratic p roperty-owners, who
pay nine-tenths of the; taxes, should
not favor a restoration of a system
that only served to increase taxation
and waste the people's 'money. There
are white people in JJorth Carolina
who know all this and who are still
clamoring for the oppression and the
outrage. .' . ' .','
The last issue of f the Danbury,
Stokes county Reporter, has an edito
rial on the proposed '(railroad "from
Toledo, Ohio, to Wilmington, via
existing routes, or those nearly com
pleted, wiih a gap of only about
eighty miles to jbe constructed. The
proposed route would: be from -here
via Fayetteville, Greensboro, Walnut
Cove and Danbury, in this State
Patrick Court House &nd New River
Bridge, in Virginia; Hinton, Charles
ton and Point' Pleasant, "in West
Virginia, and' thence through Ohio,
by way of Columbus, to Toledo, a
distance of six hundred miles. ; The
Reporter says: "Now, the whole of
this supremely important' railway
thoroughfare, with ; the exception of
about eighty miles, is graded five
sixths of it actually running, and all
of it except the link between Walnut
Cove and Patrick Court House, is
chartered and in process of construc
tion, so that with proper energy the
connection ought to be completed
within one year? at most.- Wilming
ton would then j enter: upon a course
.of', unrivalled prosperity, in which
Fayetteville would participate in no

A Klystertona Colored Individual
Prowling About Seeking What : lie
Slay ; DevourBe . Is Arrested and
lodged In . Jail. - .i ; ,
We mentioned the fact a few days ago
that a colored man ; had been picked up on
the streets by ? the police, who couldnot
(or would, not) give any account of himself,
being apparently.- dumb.': . He. was subse- J
quently bronght before the Mayor.; when,
upon being; questioned, he made: signs to
show that he; heard what was said,' but
continued speechless. - He was finally sent
out to the City Hospital,' when, to test the .
matter of "his. ability, jorrinabilityj'to talk,"
Dr. Lane, the surgeon inf charge, .suddenly
seized hold of him and spoke pretty harsh
ly to him, when he broke and ran, and an
immediate '' pursuit . by the officer who
conducted him to the hospital failed to
result in his - capture.! . Nothing1 ) more
was heard of him until yesterday afternoon,
when three colored men, f Peter Elliott,
Harvey Chadwickand jGeorge Bremer, who
farm on Capt. ; Nobles' land on the old
Newton road, near this, city, came in with
"Dummy" securely tied with a rope. . He
was taken to the office of Justice Millia,
where the men who had the unfortunate in
charge stated that he .had been prowling
about in the neighborhood in which they
live for a week or so' stealing whatever he
could lay his hands upon, and actually pull
ing the green melons in the patches, this
latter practice being carried on to some con
siderable " extent on Capt.- F: ; 1L
Wooten's place: He. . went to Harry
Chad wick's place night before last, but was
prevented from committing any depreda
tions by the strict watch that was kept upon
him, and Chad wick says that while there he
surprised him into speaking once, but could
never get him lo. repeat the experiment.;
Yesterday he went : to Peter Ellioi's place,
walked into the jhouse and helped himself
tot a lot of. meat land bread he' found in a
spider. An attempt was then made to
capture him; and George Bremer, who
happened to be at hand, finally succeeded
in running him down, when he was; tied
and brought to this city. : Upon the affida
vits of the colored men named . "Dummy",
was committed to jail to await an examina
tion this morning at 9 o'clock. ) j j

Serious Accident. .
A young man named Skipper, a resident
of Town. Creekp Brunswick county met
with quite a serious accident ' a few. idays
since." It seems that Skipper and a com
panion about his pwn age were cutting a
bee tree in search of: honey." Skipper dis
covered a knot further up the tree and
pointed it out to his friend, with the re
mark that he thought there was some ho
ney in, there, whereupon the latter immedi
ately raised his axe aloft to strike the knot,"'
when Skipper at the same moment: raise4
himself up to examine it and received the
blow upon the. top of his head, inflicting a
very severe 1 wound. The axe - penetrated
the skull, but did not touch the brain. At

the young man Was considered critical, his

On last Saturday night, about 12 o'clock,
it is supposed, the store of Mr, Pred.
Kidder, at ' the" Kendall plantation, in
Brunswick county, a few miles below this
city, was broken open and robbed of $25
or $30 in money; which '' seemed to -be the
sole object of the thieves, as nothing else
was missing,' j ,
:On Monday morning, when thet robbery
was discovered, Mr. J. T. Batson, who has
been clerking for Mr. Kidder, came Up to
the city and saw OflScer Carr, securing his
services to bunt up the thieves. " ' Suspicion
rested - upon two colored . men who have
been working in the neighborhood, and it
was supposed they , would come p to the
city on one of the steamers Monday even-.
ing. While waiting, for .the boats at
the,: foot of Market street .the officer de
tected David Statcher one of the suspect
ed men in the crowd, dressed in a new
suit of clothes, with new shoes, etc., which.
coupled with the fact that the man came to
the store in question on Saturday and pro
fessed to be entirely destitute, being dressed
at the time in nothing better than rags,' was
taken as pretty strong circumstantial evi
dence of bis guilt. ;: f r- ,-j ;--;
Statcher was arrested and carried before
Justice Milhs, where he made a statement
that the clothes, were loaned to him by cer
tain prominent colored men ot una city.
Mr. -James H; Daniels, who keeps a second-
band clothing' store on Market street, was
sent for. who identified the garments as
some he had sold to Statcher. The. latter
then confessed that he bought the clothing
with part of the money alleged to have
been taken from Mr. Kidder's store, but de
nied that he had anything to do with the
robbery, declaring that he received the mon

' WashtngtosJ June 28. Dr. George M.
Beard, of New York, has made the follow
ing prediction as to the manner in which
Guiteau will meet his death. Guiteau is not
specially timid, j He does not wish to' be
hanged, but he is willing to be hanged; and,
if necessary, will go to the scaffold as he
would go to breakfast.. If he mustvdie, he
will die dramatically picturesquely; with
insane attention! to the. details, as the ad
justment of the I rope and arrangement for
the Associated Press; with insane attention
to the main and only issue, the deprivation
of Jife; and with an insane speech on his
lips. -;:v-,:f - V-M I . -
Rev. Dr. Hicks said to-day that his know
lege of Guiteau led him to the same conclu
sions as those! expressed in. Dr. Beard's
prediction. . f :
The arrangements i for. Guiteau's ' taking
off are about complete. Guiteau has heard
the sounds of preparation, such as the saw
ing of . timbers,! hammering, experimental
dropping of trap, etc., but ,he manifests a
total indifference in regard to -them
all. , He eats very heartily and indulges in
exercise in his cell, and sleeps fairly well.
The death watch is being kept, and; he is'
never alone for a moment. - - - j : J

Charidtte Observer: A frightful
"boiler explosion1' occurred- yesterday, about
2 o'clock, at the newly-opened St. Catherine
miner near the'; track of the Air-Line Rail
road, just" beyond the western suburbs of
the . city, in which four;, men .were badly
hurt one of whom was not expected to be4
alive this morning and the injuries of an
other are . thought to be .fatal. A few
minutes after the departure of the Atlanta
bound train yesterday,: the .crowd that still
remained around - the depot- were', startled
by the echoes of a deep rumbling noise,
and looking in the 'direction of the depart
ing train, a dense volume of steam and
smoke, mixed with flying pieces of timber,
were seen to shoot up in the , air, just m
front of the disappearing passenger train.
The buildings over the shaft of the' mine
could be plainly seen from the depot, and
at the; first ; sound of the explosion those
who . turned their . eves . in that direc;
tion saw the" boiler house go up in a
heap to1 the-height of about twenty feet
and drop - back to the ground. At the
same time great pieces of the boiler were
sent in different directions,, while splinters,
bricks, pieces of iron and ; heavy timbesr -fairly
filled the air.. Behind a pile of cord
wood which, was stacked about twenty feet
from tbe engine house, . a -colored man
named Bill -Wheeler,: who waaemployed as
engineer, was found covered with dust and 9
ashes,, with his leg broken' and hip dislo-.

most beyond recognition. Close by Wheeler
