A Girl Poisoned bi her Parents to End
One of the most hi art-rcudinp casea of
hydroplmbiii ihut has y.t occurnil in our
city of lute was repeated yesterduy.
Gcorgiana McCreetly, n girl -lafd tweiro
yenr?, whs bitten by k dog afflicted witb
rubies, ou the 12th of July laat. Tw or
t hti days ago the symptoms of this hor
rilJe distemner berau to show themselves
i jn li,,.),. lnfM,t appalling forms, and t!ie girl
was immediately ftirijecr to Terrloie con-
vul inns and spasms, r rom their cotn
ni. .n- mi nt, each successive convulsion
was more shocking than its predeccKgor,
until ihu poor child was lingering in ago
nies the in. is t awful of which theniind can
Conceive. Her screams were bentl-rcnding
rimI the jmrehts nlniost distraete'd' with
this horqblo visitation upon their child.
I. .i-i ml.t tln-M- hoiTois culuiiualed , fust,
until the tortirses had become so frightful
that the parents, acting, as we.learn, upon
the advice of others, uduiinistcn d poison
to their daughter, I . put an end to her
sufferings, from which sheNwas eoon re
leased after the drug was adrrrkiislered
death occurring At half past ten a'clock.
Tne following arc some further particu
lars of the stuck upon the child by tie
dog. written prior to the culmination of
(he horrors we have mentioned:
Mrs Mary McCreedy, living nt No.OlG
East Dauphin Street, appeared at the
.Mayor's office yesterday mori'ing, and
made affidavit that on the 12th of July
last her daughter, Georgiann, aged twelve
vears, was bitten by a dog belonging to
Charles Helmuth ; tii.it Helmuth knew
the canine was affected with hydrophobia,
and that he took no means to kilt it : and
further, that Iter child was lying very ill
from the effects of the bite. On these
representation a warrant was issued and
lli liiiuth was arrested. At three o'clock
in the afternoon he was arraigned before
alderman Kerr for a hearing, but in the
absence of the prosecutrix, the caso went

'We hive ro reason to doubt the entire
c rrectnesa of an inttfeeting and insti nc

Tributie, by Dr. G. D. liei be, of Clue ago,
who achieved it, in which the particulars
of ti c removal of four i'eet uud t"ti iiicbes
of tlie intestinal canal of Miss J. 11. Cur
tis, of Lee Centre, Illinois, was affected,
ai il the life of the patient preserved. Tbe
. a-e was nriirinally one of the uiiibilieal
hernia, w inch was evidently badly trea -cd,
net Imps being mistaken for something
el.se, as when Dr. Reebe first saw it in the
tuuior it was large, discolored and on the
point ofgiving way by the pressure of a
considerable quantity of fluid therein con
tained, ihu constitutional symptoms
were snch as to leave no doubt ns to the
nature of the case, so the Doctoi set about
furnishing such relief possible. A remo
val of the integuments showed that a large
mass of the intestines had bemi pushed
through a hole iu the abdominal cavity,
and being there constricted by tbe constant
accumulation of fecal matter, had become
eongrenous and dead. The Doctor fieed
a portion of the intestine and followed it
baek in each direction to the hernial ring,
as one would rind tlie two ends of a string
lieldjiu the hand by the middle, and found
that tbe paita involved iu ihe decay was
four feet and ten inches in length. 'L'o
re furn it to lino cavity oi iho abdomen it
would have been fatal ; to remove it
would, almost of necessity, have been
equally so; but as the latter included the
mily chance of 'life, Dr. Heche applied the
knife, brought the severed ends o( the in
testines, to, its margin and . there. ; secured
them by suture ; and through the ring as
an artificial exit, the sfercoraccous matter
of the patient was discharged. After Uu
j expiration of three weeks the constitution
: al disturbance consequent upon
operation having subsided. Dr. Ueebe pro-

intestines by means of a highly ingenious
and, ns the result proved, nn effective con- J
titvance, the description ot winch our un
professional readers would not understand,
after which, he, on August 6th, closed the
artificial opening in the wall of the abodo
men which the hernia had caused, and all
the natural cxerelionaiy functions of the
body ol the patient were restored.
This case is without parallel in the his-
tory of isurgery, and by it, Dr. Jieebe has 1 out so long as Democrats arerent issues
gained remembrance that will 'he coeval, ; as stale and impracticable as they are ob
with the endurance of his heart. Indeed, j no.ious to the people. Much as we may

The moral atmosphere teems witb tbe in-

desire may come to pass, that God may
enrse whom they curse, and bless whom
they Mires. Ttrey strum their eye after
the tgnusjatus of deiusiou as it nits bo

and deception until they believe it to be
the true and only light. They flounder
on through brake and briar until the dawn
of day and the morning sun rises upon
themr when, strange to r;bvc, they rail
at the powers that brought its beams upon
them to expose their folly and wretched
ness and never bethink themselves of look

sasters ; they rail at tlie eternal basis of
all right principles as if their expenditure
of wrarklul breuth could auv mnrechanire

LIVE MEN FOR THE OPENING
In the new era that is about to be in

Whig, the people should see to it that old
politics, and snch old politicians as are
stone-blind to the new light, and are de
termined to cling obstinately to exploded
theories, dogmas and practices, shall not
clog them and impede their progress.
They should call into their service, net
only in political stations, but in their puby
lie works, their industrial enterprises, and
their corporations, live, sagacious, far see
ing, practical men, imbued with tbe spirit
of the times, emancipated from the thral
dom of old notions, prejudices and habits,
and capable of conducting the interes s
committed to them into those channels
which promise the highest degree of pros
perity. For the most part they will have
to take new men, especially iu politics.
Hut there will be numerous and honora
ble exceptions to this rule. Those, bow
ever, prominent hitherto in politics, and
whatever their yurs, who have not halted
behind the march ot events, and are not
broken down in health, spirits and useful
ness who have good., pppeiitcs- strong
teeth, and elastic joints who can discern
a new fact uud use it, however unwelcome
such men' as these are not to Le thrown
aside. They arc trumps, and should be
But it is principally from among new,
robust, Jithe, live men that we will have
to choose men who will not endeavor to
keep it dark and gloomy forever because
iheir old sun and moon and stars have
gone out aud given place to other' lights.

STATE vs. THE PRINCES AND
As an illustration of the administration
of criminal justice in this fttato. wu call
attention to the case of William l'rince,
George l'rince and John McKinley. The
fusts are, that Win. l'rince, aided by Geo.
Prince and McKinley, murdered in the
most savage aud premeditated manner, a
man whose name we could uot get fiotu
the report of the case, in the county of 1
Cherokee, at some time during the last
Fall or Winter. We learn that the mur
der was of the most shocking and brutal
character. 1 he guilty parties were ar
rested and put on their trial for wilful
murder at tbe last Spring Term ot tbe
Cherokee Superior Court, before Judge
Cannon. On the trial, the prisoners pro
posed to examine each for tbe other
rl r i a a . a . .a mm
iue Jiwge now t,uat (Jjo,- jad, a
right to such examination. The
Solicitor for the State, a Mr. Henry, ex
cepted to the ruling of the J udge, and pray
ed an appeal to tbe Supreme Court ; tbe
Judge withdrew a juror, directed a miss
trial and allowed the State to appeal !
As "o0" a lb jury Were .discharged, the.
Counsel for the prisoners moved that they

We are pleased to see that the grading
of this road is rapidly drawing to a close,
aud will be coin) pie ted from Greensboro to

Still b-tter we are informed that the
work was done directly by the Company,
and from twenty-five to thirty per cent,
less. than the Engineer's estimates. And
this too by individual and county sub

this is saying a great deal for the worthy

Impressions. The coming and going
of the thoughts of the mind, the mysteri
ous manner in which they sometimes
break in upon us, fill us with inqiiiiidg
wouder. Rut when we ascend to the
spiritual, how greatly is tint wonder in
creased : Ofteen deep spiritual impres
sions come most unexpectedly. It is night;
the toils of the day are over, and the man
has retired to rest. All is dark, lonely,
and silent around him ; the doors are fas
tened, and, with conscious security, be
sinks' into repose. But see ! a vision ap
proaches ; it halts right before k is eyes;
tt illumines midnight with its brightness ;
it breaks the silence with its voice, and
delivers a message from the Everlasting.
What a symbol is this of a spiritual
thought! It often eomes inio the cham

breaks bis slumbers, and shakes his spir

The, activity of the Roman Catholics
in tbe Southern States at the present
time, is prominently exhibited in various
wuys. The country is opeu to all class
es of religionists, infidels, ice. Error
and sin are rampant. All that Protes
tant Christians can reasonably demand is,
that truth, shall be left untrammelled,
and free to combat error. If therefore
the activity of the Romanists, infidels,
Ac., shall tend to wake up Prolestauts
and make them energetic and iaithful in
the promulgation of truth, we shall re
As an evidence of designs and active
efforts of Roman Catholicism, iu the
Southern States, we notiee the following
telegram from London, Eng. dated Sept.
"SMryrnfiig Joif sy that the
Pope is about making great efforts to
coti vert American negroes; two hundred
of them are now studying for tbe priest
hood." The negro mind is easily affected in
matters ot religion by show and ceremo
ny. Tbe irreligious among them are
easily led by music, and are ambitious
enough to enter the first door to promo
tion and recognition. The rigid enfoice
ment of Christian morals aud duty finds
a strong repulsion in tbe negro mind.
They all want indulgence n inch, that
they may take an ell, and hence unless
strong efforts are made to counteract
these influences by earnest, laborious and
kind instruction in the word of God, in
the enjoyment of experimental religion
und in the daily practice of Christian
mortals, the Romanittic system will
make fearful inroads among them.
When they are truly and soundly eon
verted and give evidence of it, by godly
and upright conduct, they are not easily
led off by ceremony and show. It be
hooves the real friends of the nee ro there
fore, to redouble their efforts to save them
from sin and error. Their general dis
trust of white neoule the difficult v of se
curing such influence over them as will
save them from error, by the efforts of
white people, renders important that spe
cial efforts be made to instruct and train
NPV sTHrrwtedge of the negro character
and the proper way to reach them, worthy
of the shrewdness of the Jesuists.
But to come hearer home, it will be
sedhy that tlie money and tiTe wealth of
the Roman Catholics are to be expended
in North XJarolina for the diffusion of
their viewsTJie Charlotte 7 imes notices
a rumor on the streets, that tbe Roman
Catholics arc about, to purchase tbe
building formerly ocenpjed by tbe Mili
tary Institute and more latently by the
Mecklenburg Female .College, for the
; purpose of establishing a NpnnCTjr. . We
hope tne rumor Is untrue. 1 he tmNitnii
! we understood, would bo opened this
as a Female 'College. Having been used
a.-; a Protestant School, we should regret
to leara it had been abandoned by tie
Prolrstant and suffered so pass into lb'
hands of the Roniists. Moreover, it
would be a standing memorial of th
want of liberality and energy on the part
of 1,'mt' slants in maintaining their own

CHINESE IDEA OF MUSIC.
"Virtue is the great principle of hitman
nature. Music is the budding forth of
virtue. Verse serves Ao express the
thoughts; singing modulates tlie voice;
the evolutions set the countenance in
movement. These three things take their
origin tbe mind, and the instruments of
music follow the outward expression .
" Hence it follows that the internal na
ture of music is deep, and that its external
manifestation is brilliant, it may be com
pared to that expansive energy which
wonderfully produces all things. The
harmony, however, must be concentrated
inwardly, in order to flourish outwardly,
for music -ts a thing which cannot be falsi
fied. "Music is tlie product of the heart's
emotions. Sounds and airs are the' body
of music. The elegance and the measure
are the ornaments of the sounds. In the
produciiignf music, the sage begins by
vtng'lris own heart, and then strives to
roducc this emotion in music; and
tl-y, he regulates tbe adornments.
lif t music be generally disseminated,
then virtue- is duly honored the- noble
roan is led thereby more to the love of
good, and the uiean man thereby hearts
his errors reproved. Hence it is said
among ihe doctrines for educating a peo
ple, music is of great importance.
"When we thoroughly investigate mu
sic, in order to regulate the heart, then
the sentiments of uprightness and good
ness come forth with facility. When the
sentimerfts of uprightness and goodness
spring forth, then one is pleased. When
one is pleased, then there is quiet. Where !
quietness is, there will be long duration.
Where long duration is, there is heaven-
and where there is heaven, there the gods
mn."-1From the September number of

A MUSICAL M l si:
Sortly after retlting to bed last Son
day night, Mr. W. E. Bntcher was arous
ed by sounds of melodious sweetness is
suing apparently from the plastering of
his chamber. He listened iu wonder and
astonishment for some time, trying t.
think what the caute of the singing could
be. The family were called up and
lights procured, when tbe vocal immedi
ately ceased ; but as soon as the light was
extinguished it commenced again. A
vigorous search of the room, was made,
the bird cage in tbe passage was exam
ined, but the bird was silent, and after
several ineffectual attempts to find the mu
sician, tbe family retired, not to sleep but
to listen for hours to such music as tbey
bad never heard before.
Of course this was tlie topic of con
versation in the family tbe next day, and
some said the bouse must Le haunted.
Monday night was but a repetition of
what happened Sunday night, only tbe
music was louder and more sweet, and
the wonder of tbe famioly increased, as
they still hunted unsuccessfully for a so
lution of tbe mystery.
Night before last, however, the mys
tery was solved. The nurse was sent up
stairs to pot the children to bed, and pnt
lur the lamp but dimly burning, on the
floor, she was sitting very quietly w hen
she heard the same wonderful sounds,
and looking in the direction from whence
they came, she saw a mouse sitting ou.
his haunches and singing away al the top
of his voice. The family were called up
and the little warbler chased around the
room for some time, but he at last sue
ceeded in finding his way back to the.
bole where he soon struck up another
This may appear to be a strange story,
bnt it is vouched for by Mr. Butcher,
and no one who knows him will doubt it.

Sir Isaac Newton and the Apple. It
has long been suspected, if not positively
known, that the picturesque story ol Sir
Isaac Newton having been led to the dis
covery of the law of gravitation by the
foil of an apple was as baseless as many
of the other line traditions of genius. W e
fear it will now have to be filially con
signed to the limbo of slaughtered fictions.
A remarkable manuscript f Newton has
enuje to light in which he himself gives an
account to a' friend of the origin of his
great discovery, and not a word occurs to
show that the fall of nn apple had any
thing to do with it. In bidding a kindly
farewell to this venerable marvel who will
refuse a tor to his memory. New 1""
