Wkldon Fair. We are author
ized to state that the Ffth Annual
Fair of the Boanoke and Tar Blver

debted to Prof. Kerr, State Geolo
gist, for a Geological Map of the
State of North Carolina, giving a
complete description of the miner
al formations indifferent parts of
the State. This map will doubtless
nrove of erreat service to those
versed in Geology, and we especi
ally advise every student to pro
cure one.

Oak City Mills. The grain
mills which have for the past
month or so been in course of erec
tion by Messrs. Williamson, Up
church & Thomas, near tho North
Carolina Railroad depot, are now
finished and in a few days will
commence operations. The ma
chinery is of first class order and
all of the arrangements are most
complete. We have no doubt the
enterprise will prove a success, and
we hope many others will follow
the example of these enterprising
proprietors.
Amusements. Now that the
political excitement has ended and
the people have relaxed into their
wonted quiet it would be a good
time for a circus, menagerie or
something else in the show line to
come along. Nothing operates so
well to unite a crowd as a good
hearty laugh at the clown. We
boldly assert that at the close of a
performance the clown could get
more votes in Raleigh than all the
late candidates put together. Peo
ple may talk about massing the
votes of different parties but the
clown can beat them all at consol
idation. Wo notice that Carrington's Cir
cus is heading this way. We hope
it may come quickly.
Decision. Justice Reade,
the Supreme Court, has filed
of
an
opinion in the case of Perry vs.
Whitaker, et al., which, it will be
remembered, involved the right to
sell liquor in this township. It is
held by the Court, that inasmuch as
the books were not opened for reg
istering the names of voters as re
quired in section 12, chapter 52 of
Battle's Revisal, the election held
in May last on the Prohibition
question was null and void. The
decision of the Court is not based
upon the unconstitutionality of the
act, but only upon tho irregularity
of the election, and therefore, if the
question should hereafter be sub
mitted in proper form the decision
of the people of the Township will
become the law.
A Good Chance. The old say
ing that "I'ts an ill wind that blows
no body any good," is now being
verified in our midst We have
had, thus far, an unusually healthy
summer. Our doctors have not
done as well lately as they general
ly do in the hot months of July and
August, and our apothecaries have
not compounded the usual number
of summer prescriptions. But, gen
tlemen, cheer upt mix up your
alum, honey, and other gargling
stuffs. One-half of the Democratic
party in Raleigh have the sore
throat, while one-half of the re
maining half have so stretched
their lungs as to require cough med
icine for months to come. When
we take into consideration the fur
ther fact that an enormous quanti
ty of blue mass will be required to
put into proper action the torpid
livers of some of our Republican
friends whose bile was a little stirred
up during the late- unpleasantness,
we can safely predict a more active
tate of the, medicine market for at
least the balance of this year.

corner of Hlllsboro and McDowell

A. W. Shaffer. Itesister in Bank
ruptcy, The old house will remain,
we understand, until the, comple
tion of the new church which is to
be erected on the same lot, when It
will be pulled down. This house
was at one time the residence of W.
M. Boy lan, Esq., but at the close of
the war it was vacated by that gen
tleman and was leased by the pres
ent Sheriff of Wake, T. F. Lee,
Esq., who converted It into a Club
House.
The old mansion lias been the
f many a Jolly reunion, and
i 113 IIU"3 nve ruujr wii.ii uie strains
of good old songs. There are many
old and young who can look back
to pleasant hours spent in the "old
Club House." Memory calls back
the gigantic frame of Tim Lee, with
his polished head and white shirt
front, reaching for the black bottle
of one of his many customers in its
numbered Case. Tim was then in
the prime of life and had never
dreamed of " wotiner the ticket."
Later still we recall the jolly face of
Sam Carrow, as he extended to
some poor unfortunate tne rignt
hand
of fellowship, accompanied
perhaps with a stray dollar. But
the old 'Club House," like all earth
ly things, has had its day, and ere
long it will exist only in the mind's
eye. We bid it farewell.

PROPOSALS FOR DISTENSION
STONE for the United States Court
House and Post Office. Raleigh, N. C.
Officr of Supbbintendknt,
U. S. Court Housk and Post Office,
Jtaleigh, N. C, April 6, 1874.
Sealed proposals will be received at
this office until 12 M. of the 6th day of
May, 1874, for furnishing and deliver
ing at the site of the United States Court
House and Post Office at Raleigh, North
Carolina, all of the dimension stone re
quired for the exterior of that bnilding.
The species of stone from which a se
lection will be made will be confined to
granites, marbles and sand stones, and
the qualities especially insisted upon
will be uniformity of color and texture,
durability, and the capacity for working
under the chisel or hammer.
A sample block 12x12x12 inches must
be submitted with each bid, showing
on one lace the natural fracture of the
stone, and on the others different grades
of cutting. The stone must have a good
grain and be free from all discoloring
substances, and the quarry from which
it is procured must be fully opened and
capable of furnishing the quality and
quantity desired within one year.
About 30,000 cubic feetmore or less
will be required. The actual average
of the stones cannot now be given, but
will approximate 10 cubic feet, the
largest stones containing about 75 cubic
feet. The stone will be ordered on a
schedule of net sizes, and allowance of
one inch to each cut face will be made
for quarry dimensions, according to the
rules made by this Department in order
that the contractor may make proper
allowance for cutting, in the quarrying,
and on this schedule payment will be
made.
Bidders will state how soon they can
commence delivering the stone and the
amount per week they can deliver.
They will also state the average and
maximum size of the stones that can be
