Cumberland County Fair.
We are under obligations to Wm.
Alderman. Esq., Secretary of the
Cumberland County Agricultural
Society, for a ticket to the Fair
which commences in Fayetteville,
on the 10th of November, and con
tinues four days. Our friends of
the Cape Fear region are making
extensive arrangements and will
doubtless have a fine exhibition.
The Bar-rooin Remedy for all ail

Fusel Oil, a deadly element, rendered
more active by the pungent astringents
with which it is combined. If your
stomach is weak and liver or bowels
disordered, strengthen and regulate
them with Vinegar Bitters, a purely

The jeople all along the line of

just the sort of man we always
knew Cousin John was."

We wish the happy couple the most

Gale. On Monday morning, the
28th ult., it commenced raining and
continued with but. little, if any
intermission during the day. At
night a regular storm set In with a
heavy gale blowing which did not
abate Its fury until the morning of
the 29th. Wc may expect to hear
of considerable damage along the
coast, as the storm seemed to be
Arrival. Hon. W. A. Smith,'
member of Congress from this dis
trict, arrived in the city on Satur
day, the 2Cth ult., and stopped as
usual at the Yarboro House. Maj.
Smith is looking about as well as
usual. As an illustration of the
way the Major looks to business,
we will relate a joke concerning
him which we heard a few days
since. It seems he stopped to din-
ner on one occasion at a large and
fashionable Hotel. After being seat-
ed at the table the waiter brought
to him several handsome plates con-
taining a very limited quantity of
food on each plate. The Major
viewed the plates for a moment,
when he turned and said, Walter,
these samples will do very well ;
you can now bring on my dinner."
The waiter vanished and soon
brought a sufficient quantity to sat
isfy a gentleman of the Major's ap-
petite and size.
Lillian Edoartox. We have
heretofore announced that this lady
would lecture in Raleigh on Thurs-
day and Friday evenings, October
8th and 9th. In order that our
readers may know something of
the character that Miss Edgarton
sustains, we copy the following no
tice from the Chicago T$Hbune :
Miss Edgarton is a logical wo-
man. one possesses not omy xno
quick perceptions and subtle rather
than clear idealizations common to
her sex, but in addition exhibits a
power of sustained reasoning and a
logical coherence of argument which
lifts her far above tne nerd oi plat
form frequenters, not excepting the
many male empirics who assume to
edify a long-suffering public. It
was impossible to avoid sharing in
the obvious spell of admiration and
interest which her oratory, all the
more entrancing from being entire
ly free of that tawdry tinsel and
glitter of fine words which so many
public speakers find a convenient
substitute for substance and sense,
had thrown over the audience. We
never had a more satisfactory " sit
ting" at any lecture."

Addresscs were delivered by
Judge Henry and Gen. W. R. Cox,
both of whom paid merited com
pliments to the eminent character
of the deceased. In accordance With
J the resolution to that effect, , the
Judge ordered the proceedings to be
spread upon tho mlnntes of the
Horrible Murder. His Ex
cellency Governor Brogden received
on the 28th ult. a letter from the
Coroner of Halifax stating that, on
the night of the 20th ult, George
W. Daniel, a "colored member elect
to the General Assembly from that
county, was shot and killed by Jo
seph R. Branch, without the least
cause or provocation, as was proven
before the Coroner at the inquest
The murder was committed within
five hundred yards of Daniel's house.
It seems that Daniel was quietly
walking along the main county road
in company with his wife and three
other persons 'when Branch rode up
behind them at full speed and cried
out, Clear the way." Daniel and
his friends turned around to see
what was the matter, when Branch
shot Daniel in the side with buck
shot, from the effects or which ne
died in about an hour. The parties
were within six steps of each other
when the firing took place. After
the commission of the deed Branch
fled and at last accounts had not
been arrested. At the time of the
murder he was mounted on a dark
bay horse, and it is thought that he
has fled the State. We have seldom
been called upon to chronicle a more
dastardly act than this. If all re-
ports be true (and there seems to be
no doubt), the utmost efforts or an
classes of our people should be put
forth to capture the criminal. We
are authorized to state that just as
soon as the Sheriff shall report the
case in accordance with the statute,
certifying: that the accused cannot
J be arrested by ordinary process, the
Governor will issue his proclama
tion offering a reward. In the
meantime we call upon all who re
spect the law to be on the alert for

the larger of the two children to

they were burned in the house. His

THE DEBT OF THE CITY OF
To the Holders qf Bonds and Scrip
of the My of Raleigh.
Anxious to do something for the re
lief of the creditors of the city, and to
shape the debt that the interest will be
f'roinptly paid, for several months the
toard of City Commissioners have had
the subject under consideration, and
have enacted the following oidlnanceas
the result of their labors. -
Every tax payer is interested in the
financial welfare of the city as much so
as the Commissioners, and every one
should give their hearty co-operation to
any measure calculated to relieve the
city from its present embarrassments,
and place it upon a safe financial basis.
We therefore appeal to our citisens who
hold city scrip and overdue bonds, to
come forward and exchange the same
for the new bonds authorized by this
ordinance. Without the aid of the
creditors of the city nothing can be
done, but with their assistance the city
debt can be so arranged that, with ju
dicious management in the future, the
interest can be promptly paid every six
months, and the bonds met at maturity.
We respectfully appeal to our citizens
to come forward and aid us in carrying
out the provisions of this ordinance,
which has been passed in good faith,
and with a sincere hope that it will meet
the views of the public generally.
