Injunction. We are Informed

Judge Kerr, upon the application
of W. F. Askew, Esq., granted an
injunction restraining S. D. Harri
son, Esq., the lately appointed tax
collector for this county, from ex
ercising the functions of the office.

Mr. Harrison declined to file his

action on the part of the Board of
Commissioners in the premises.
The A pfroaciiing Fair. The
President of the State Agricultural
Society, Col. T. M. Holt, was in the
city a few days since, and in com
pany with the Board of Managers,
paid a visit to the Fair Grounds for
the purpose of inspecting the con
dition of the buildings, track, d-c.
We learn that the prospect of a finer
display than ever before is very
flattering, and that the number of
persons in attendance is expected to
2 larger than at any former exhi
bition.
Premium lists, and rules and reg
ulations, can be had on application
either to Col. Thos. M. Holt, or R.
T. Fulghum, Esq., Secretary.
Little Monitor. E. Tate, Esq.,
has had on exhibition in front of the
Court House in this city, the past
f-v days, a machine called the "Lit

machine a fanning mill and grain
ami seed separator. With it, the
farmer can easily separate his seed
.wheat from that intended for mar
ket. It also separates wild onions
from wheat. Mr. Tate has testimo
nials from many gentlemen in this
and other States who have used his
machine to much advantage. Coun
ty and Township rights can be se
cured, on which enterprising men
mirht do well.
Visiting Firemen. Two com

Metropolitan Hall by Mayor Hol
den and a ball was given them at

our streets, making a fine show.
At night there was another ball.

Raleigh boys did all in their power
to render their visit an
one.

The Fayetteville Gazette says that
a combined and systematic effort is
about to be made by many citizens
to build another cotton factory at
an early day. The Gazette adds
We have recently seen a letter from
a gentleman in New York, ad
dressed to one of our citizens, offer
ing to sell a complete outfit of ma
chinerv for a cotton mill, and take
payment for the same in stock ; and
we have been assured that this ar
rangement can be easily made at
any time, by the managers of a
company going to work with en

buildings can be put up there need
be no failure to obtain machinery.

charred. She lived twelve hours,
when death relieved her from her
suffering. This is the most dis

day night, the 20th inst., Mr. Wil
liam A. Corson, a young man about
2" years of ago, was seriously
wounded by a pistol shot at the
hands of Mr. John Bragg, Local
LMitorof the Sentinil. The shoot
ing occurred at the house of a
young colored woman named Clara
Haywood, in the Eastern Ward.
It seems that Mr. C'oro'n in com
pany with another young man,
went to the house on the night in
liiition, and after remaining some
time, Mr. Bragg knocked at the
i r and demanded admission. No
r ply being made to his demand,
Uragg after saying "look out, I am
irking to shoot," discharged his pis
tol through an opening in the win
dow, the ball taking effect in the
ri'ht side of Mr. Corson's belly,
causing a serious wound. The
young man after being shot walked
to the residence of Dr. Fab. Hay
wood, Jr., from whence he was car
ried to his room, where for several
days he lay in a critical condition.
At last accounts Mr. Corson was
doing well with a fair prospect of
recovery, but he will probably carry
ith him to his grave the effects of
the wound. This affair has caused
some excitement in the city. If
we have been correctly informed it
originated as many such cases do
froni an intemperate use or ardent
sP"rits, and is another sad warning
to the young men of this and other
localities. Mr. Bragg was arrested
on Friday morning and after an
examination before His Honor
Mayor Holden, was required to
vjive bail in the sum of $3,000. The
bail was given and Mr. Bragg left
th- city.

The Democratic, wlitlcians have
made tbeir followers think: that the
results of this election would iiave
somethl nr to do with the passage of
the civil rights bill, and so it will.
The effect will probably be to in
duce the House of Representatives
to pass the bill, so soon as Congress
meets, next winter. The larger the
majority, the more determined will
be the friends of the measure.
While moderation would have
made them pause and .hesitate,
fierceness and violence, and the
drawing of the color line, will have
the contrary effect. For this, the
people of North Carolina have the
Democrats to thank. The cam
paign has been conducted by the
Democratic leaders, with the full
knowledge that the result In this
State would in nowise influence the
action of the House of Representa
tives, to prevent the passage of the
law. . The present Congress, not the
next," will decide the question.

The Jones county correspondent
of the New-Berne Times writes
that paper under date of the 18th:
On vesterday about? ten o'clock, a,'
m.. Daniel Dove- and iWm. White
had a fight, in which the latter got
the best of it; whereupon Dove
went to his father, who was but a
short distance loff, for assistance.
Dove and his father returned, and
both attacked White, and while
engaged In the melee, a man named
John Harrison, who had just re
turned from hunting,appeared upon
tbe scene, and, laying his gun down,
Eroceeded to part the combatants ;
ut before he was able to effect any
thing, Daniel Dove seized upon the
gun ana aenoeruwjiy puiuuug u at
White, discharged the full contents
into his body, inflicting wounds that
resulted in the death of the unfor
tunate man in twenty minutes. This
occurrence took place within about
live miles of Trenton, tnecouniy
seat, and all the parties are colored.
Young Dove is but a boy, some
eighteen or nineteen years old, and
he, together with his father, are
now in jail. A coroner's jury, who
have held an inquest, rendered a
verdict of jwllful murder against
young Dove.
A distressing suicide was com
mitted near this place on last Fri
day morning. Mr. Martin Privett,
an old and respected citizen, some
months ago had an attack of fever,
and had been deranged ever since,
ended his life at the above time in
the following horrible manner:
His wife had prepared breakfast
and asked him to come out to it,
but he said that he did. not want
any ; she insisted, when he told her
to eat on, he would be out directly.
She left him, but just as she com
menced eating, she heard the loud
report of a gun issue from the room
he was in. She rushed In and found
him lying on the floor already
dead his brains scattered all over
the room, and the blood streaming
from a horrible wound in the head.
It seems that he had cocked the
gun a musket and had set it upon
the floor and placed his head to the
muzzle, and had then, with an um
brella touched off the trigger, lie
must have died instantly. There
was a hole in the side of the head
the size of a common chair post.
Most of the shot stayed in the head,
but some of them went out at the
back of the head and struck the
ceiling above, and some of his
brains were also sucking 10 me
ceiling. This is undoubtedly the
most horrible suicide we ever heard
of. It is thought his mind caused
him to commit the deed. Monroe
