though the customer may j be al
ready drunk. If a law wan passed
making it an indictable ffence for
any one to sell liquor to a; person
under ita influence at the time, it
would doubtless have some effect
towards putting a stop to the many
cases of crime that are constantly
occurring around us. The man or
woman who would sell a fellow
man liquor when he is already
drunk ought to be made to suffer at
least a portion of the penalty for
any crime the man who is in such
a statement commit. By selling
euch a man liquor, it is giving a
helping hand to crime for which
the offender should suffer. We do
hope our Legislature will look into
this matter. The frequent crimes
that have been committed in North
Carolina of late are a disgrace to the
State, and all means possible should
be resorted to for their suppression.
Ex-Gov. IIolden. This; distin
guished gentleman was invited by
th fommittee on invitations to
deliver an address to the colored
people of New-Berne on theoccas
Ion of the celebration of emancipa
tion on the 1st inst. The colored
people of North Carolina owe to
Oovernor Holden a deeper debt of
gratitude, than to any living man.
The Proclamation of President
T.inooln did indeed announce the
determination of our Government
to protect with all the force at its
command the rights of Liberty ; but
It was left to Gov. Holden, to rescue
them in North Carolina from shame
ful outrages and cruelty. For their
good he sacrificed place and power,
and even risked assassination. The
present generation of the colored
people of North Carolina will hand
down the name of HOLDEN, to
their children, and eachsucceeding
generation will revere his memory
and applaud his deeds.
The following is the letter of Gov.
Holden to the committee.
It is modest in its tone, and full of
good wholesome advice.

Destructive Fire and Less
of Life. On Wednesday night the
7th Inst., the county jail of Frank
lin county, situated at Louisburg,
was discovered to be en fire, and
although every exertion was used
to save the building it was totally
consumed. There were five pris
oners "confined in the jail, twej of
whom were in: the dungeon and
three, including one woman up
stairs; The two confined in the
dungeon were the colored men,
Bob Dunson and Simon Boddie,
who broke open and robbed J. J.
Minetree's gin house some weeks
ago. The two men up stairs were
rescued, but the woman whose
name was Susan Eppes and an in
valid, and Dunson and Boddie,
were burned alive. The woman
was only 19 years of age, and the
men were likely young men and
resided in Louisburg. The jailer
lived some distance off and with
great difficulty the key of the
building was obtained, me cries
of the unfortunate prisoners for help
are said to have been heart-rend
in ir. The market house and other
buildings were torn down to pre
vent the spread of the flames.

Art department, 1874.
The illustrations of The' Aldine have
won a world-wide reputation, and! in
the art centres of Europe it is an ad
mitted fact that its woodcuts are exam
ples of the highest perfection ever at
tained. The common prejudice in favor
of "steel plate$," is rapidly yielding to
a more educated and discriminating
taste which recognizes the advantages
of suberior, artistic oualitv with o-reater
facilitv of nrodnction. The worui ciits
of The Aldine i possess all the delicacy
and elaborate finish oi the mast mostly
steel plate, while they afford a better
rendering of the artist's orierinal. t i
To fully realize the wonderfdl work
which The Aldine is doing for the, cause
of art , culture in America, it is only
necessary to consider the cost to the
people of any. other decent representa
tions of the productions of great pain-
ti8 . . ,
In addition to designs by the memi
bers of the National Academy, and
other noted American artists, The Al
dine will reproduce examples of the
best foreign masters, selected with, a
view to the highest artistic success and
greatest general interest. Thus the
subscriber to, Th.e, Aldine will, at a
trifling cost, enjoy in his own home the

Every subscriber to The Aldine for
the year 1874 will receive a pair of
chromos. The original - pictures wercr
painted in oil for the publishers of The
AldineAyy Thomas Moran, whose great
Colorado picture was purchased by
Congress for ten thousand dollars. The
subjects were chosen to represent "The
East" and "The West." One is a view
in The White Mountains, New Hamp
shire; the other gives The Cliffs of
Green River, Wyoming Territorv.
The difference in the nature of the
scenes themselves is a pleasing contrast,
and affords a good display of the artist's

Messrs. James Sutton & Co.
Gentlemen, l am delighted with the
proofs in color of your chromos. They
are wonderfully successful representa
tions by mechanical process of the
Signed,) Thos. Moras.
These chromos are in every sense
American. They are by " an original
American process, with material of
American manufacture, from designs
of American scenery by an American
painter, and presented to subscribers to
the first successful American Art Jonr-
nal. It no better because of all this,
they will certainly possess an interest
no ibreign production can inspire, and
neither are they any the worse if by
reason of peculiar facilities of produc
tion they-cost the publishers only a
trine, wnxie equal in everv respect to
other chromos that are sold singly for
double the subscription price of The
Aldine. Persons of taste will prize
these pictures for themselves not for
the price they did or did not cost, and
will appreciate the enterprise that ren
ders ther distribution possible.
If any subscriber should indicate a
reference for a figure subject, the pub
ishers will send Thoughts of Home,"
a new and beautiful chromo, ljx20
inches, representing a little Italian exile
whose speaking eyes betray the long
ings of his heart.
Terms $5.00 per annum, in advance,
with Oil Chromos free.
For Fifth Cents Extra, the Chromos
will be sent, mounted, varnished,
....... and prepaid by mail.
The Aldine will, hereafter, be obtain
