The General Assembly of North
(fJarolina is now -in session, hav
ing convenea at ie estate uapi

tracting the attention of our people,
who are looking to their Legislators
for some relief from the "hard times."

-the Legislature can do for their re
lief, yet with all that they can do,
ere will be much disappointment
and gruniblicg at their action, for
really they will not be able to do all
4hat the people demand. We there
fore warn our readers in advance,
-not to expect too much at their
hands, for the body politic is now
.-somewhat in the condition of the hu
man body when slowlv recovering
froia wme dangerous illness, and we
must not have two much "doctoring,
but by kindly treatment, close atten-
tion to business, simple diet, alld

strict economy, endeavoi o build up
the enfeebled system and restore a
.healthy tone to ihe body politic. As
.our Legislature meets only once in
1'0 years and can in
.oasdavs, there ,v !l be
no time for windy Epeeches or "bun-,
cjmbe" resolutions, but the Members
should devote their whole time and
oi sncn measures as will best pro-1
mote the interests of our people. '

If the law is too strict, and re
quires too much of an overseer, it is
rot the fault of the Grand Juror,
and it is none the less his duty to
indict any overseer who does not
comply with its requirements. If it
is a bad law, it should be repealed,
and the best way to have it repealed
is to enforce it We think that the
entire system of working our roads
should be changed (of which we will
speai hereafter), but while the law
Btmds as it does, it should be en
forced, and by enforcing it, its harsh
ness and defects will become so odi

The present wretchea, and almost
impassable condition of our roads is
the best proof that our road law' is
either defective and wrong in princi
ple, or is not enforced, and we rath
er think that it is both. It certainly
does seem an unjust hardship on an
overseer, to expect him to comply
with all the requirements of the law
as it now reads, and with the means
at his command that most of them
have. Bat while this ia true, yet our
overseers as a class can make our
roads better than they are, They
can at least fill up holes in the roads,
and can pnt pp sign boards and mile
posts as required by Sections 19
and 21 of the "Ifaatf aw" published

call "retrenchment aa Via
price paid for examining lunatics
was $5 00. I think the present Board
of County Commissioners are the
right men in the right place.
I see also, in the Reocbp, of the
12th of December, that jail fees have
been reduced to 30 cents a day for
each prisoner; and that purchasing
agent for the poor house is allowed
2 1-3 per cen. commissions. The
former price aid as commissions,
was 5 per cent Then we call 2 1-2
per cent, "retrenchment." But it
seems to me likfi the office of pur
chasing agent, might be abolished
entirely, while the Commissioners
fjtain a man as Superintendent of
the Poor House at a salary of $300
a year. This amount should com
mand the services of a fair business
man, and I see no necessity for hav
ing a purchasing agent; then the
Superintendent should do the ptuv
chasing without any extra fees. The
merchants of your town are men of
good business qualifications and up
right gentlemen, and I have no hesi
tation in saying that the county
would not be hurt if the prices of
supplies were entirely left to them,
as they buy supplies at market prices

New East building loaded with I
wood, Although it was qnite early I
when we passed through Ghapel'
Hill, we saw evidences that there !
was still lite in the Village; the
streets presented quite a business
appearance. About a mile beyond
Chapel Hill, we had the unexpected
pleasure of meeting with our popular
countyman, W. F. Stroud, Esq., who
was looking after the building of fine
Mills on property recently purchased
in Orange county. He was glad to
see us, and not having time to chat
us as he liked, exacted of us the per
mit to spend a night with him on
our return at his house.
The country from Chapel Hill to
Durham, a distance of twelve miles,
is quite broken, and not very pre
possessing to the traveller, in tact it
looks quite poor in the vicinity of
Durham, At 10 o'clock we had
reached our destination, and secur
ing our steed we proceeded to the
world-wide known smoking tobacco
factory of W. T. Blackwell & Co.,
where we met our friend and form
er countyman, Capt N. A Ramsay,
who has been book-keeper for this
mammoth concern for several years,
and they are fortunate in securing
tlie service? of ttlis accomplished ac-

countant. The hour for dinner be
ing announced, we accepted Capt.
R'r invitation to dine with him, and
at once repaired to his beautiful res
idence, where we weie most cordially
received and entertained by his most
estimable wife. Dinner over, we re
turned with the Capt. to his office,
where, for the first time, we mec the
Senior partner of this firm, Col.
Blackwell, of whom we shall make
mention hereafter. To look through
the apartment of this colossal estab
lishment, was onr leading desire on
leaving home, and to this task, Capt.
R. assigned himself that afternoon.
The counting rooms are most conve
niently arranged and handsomely
furnished; beyond this, I can not at
tempt a description, for it is beyond
my comprehension; one must see it
to fully comprehend its magnitude.
Great executive ability is displayed
i in the management of this immense
business, and so well is its govern
ment arranged that it naturally runs
itself. A competent head to each
department, with Col. Blackwell as
buyer of the raw material and Julian
S. Carr, Esq., Junior partner, finan
cier, who, by the by, is considered
one of the best financiers in the
South. It. was getting late when we
had finished our round of sight see
ing, and wishiug to spend the night,
with a friend in the countrv, we bid
these clever gentlemen "good after
noon," and piocepded to tho resi
dence of Mr. Alvi Horton. form

fine farm six miles north af D-irliMn,

The Methodist and Biptist de
nominations of Durham have very
elegant churches, that would be a
credit to any of our cities. I was iti
formed that Mr. Cut contributed
1700 to the building of the Method
ist church, and Colonel Blackwell
about the same to the Baptist, he
being of that pursuasion. Both of
these gentlemen have families, and
have elegant residences, with beauti
fully decorated yards. Col. Black
well is very f md of flue stock, and
showed US through Lis stables, where '
fire kept twenty-seven elegant horses, I

shire and other improved breeds of I
bo-js some of them would weih I
from 250 to 500 lbs. A pen of 29 i
fat turkeys, bought 4ot Christmas,
was close by; here a door is opened
in the wall inclosing this lot, and we
are ushered into a regular kennel,
where the Colonel keeps a large pack
of hounds for fox and rabbit hunting,
of which he is exceedingly fond. It
is now nearly 1 o'clock, and being
reminded of our promise to our friend
Mr. Stroud, who lives nineteen miles
distant, over a muddy road, we reluct
tanly bid these clever people g o i
bve, and turned our back on Durham
with the hope that we may again
visit that pleasant place. We have
it in proof, that Durham is one of the
most hospitable towns in the State.
A little after sun-down, we drove up
to the gate of our friend, whose shake
of hand and genial smile showed the
reality of the warmth of our welcome,
by both, Mr. St; oud and his very ex
cellent wife. Supper was soon an
nounced, and being first-rate with a
knife and fork, with the additional
apology of missing our dinner, I as
sure you we did ample justice to the
bountiful supper set before us by his
good lady. Supper over, we repaired
to the parlor of our friend, where
were assembled several clever gentle
men of the neighborhood, and among
them, Mr. Whitted, the popular
school teacher, in the Mount Pleas
ant neighborhood, and conversation
of course turned to the subjeot of
education; a subject which is now
exciting the people of North Caroli
na; and after a lengthy and animated
discussion on the subject of "higher
education for the masses oi the peo
ple," it was agreed by a decided ma
jority that a well educated boy would
not plough a kicking mule in a rocky
field, without cursing. Our stay
with our friend, was very pleasant
feeling rather like we were at home.
The many friends of cmr clever old
bachelor friend Wilson Stroud, will
bo sorry to learn that his condition is
still unchanged I think though, the
symptoms indicate a change for the
better.. A very clever, sprightly wid
ow down at Durham, has been mak
ing enquiries pointing in that direc
tion. He has the sympathy of a host
of friends with tlie hope that he may
soon bo all right.
We bid good-bye to our clever
friend and hi good lady the next
mcrniLg, and without the scintilla
of an accident, to mar tho pleasure
of this trip, we reached home with
renewed energies, and met the fond
embrace of an affectionate and loving
wife, one of the pleasures of this life
