FAYETTEVTLLE aND WESTERN
There seems to be a chance that the Fa v
atteville and Coalfields Railroad Company
will aelect Salisbury as the eruiiuus of the
road. It will undoubtedly be the part of
wisdom, to do so. Should the Company se
lect Greensboro, it will merely open a chan
nel, by which ia drain tlo- products and trade
of Montgomery, Moore, and part of Ran
dolph eonuties, to Richmond and other points
North, aud seriously dnaftnge Fayetteville
whereas, to connect witliSaiisbury, will not
only secure the trade of the above named
e- .unties, but open a line of railroad commu
nication directly with the western part of the
State, aud ultimately with East Tennessee
and the Valley of the Mississippi river. It re
ally does appear to us. that a child even in
the toeipieney of its wisdom, would se-j the
advantages of building! he road to Salisbury.
That should be the trunk line and the line
that mould benefit the public the stork
holders in the road and Fayetteville, most.
It would enable peoj.le'of several counties iu

We are tiidebted to Hon. Wm. H. Bafile for
"a full rejiort of the proceedings in the matter
of tlie Bench and tlie Bar," with a review of the
opinion of the court in that case. The imper
fect reading which we have been enabled to
give convinces us that the netinn of (lie rourt
cannot be sustained for an instant. Indeed the
reviewer of the opinion proves conclusive
ly, to our mind. that, so far ss the law is con

stand upon. 1 he review, is an able, master! v

NEW PROCESS IN WHEAT CUL
TURE. The result of an experiment trade during
the past season, by It. A. Gilpin, nt hn
farm in W'estown, on tin; wide planting
and cultivation of wheat, appears to he
quite remarkable. In giving an account
of the experiment, Mr. Gilpin s:tys : The
ground measured nu acre within a fraction;
it was f.ot selected on account of any lu-
fciioritv. but was much the anine as Un
rest of the field, and Was manured and
prepared just, the same. The seed was
the red Mediterranean, and not very Coed,
being taken from the wheat grown on the
place the previous season, which was in
jured by the weevil. It was drilled tn ut
ili. rate of three qnarleis of a bushel to the
acre, on the 25ib of September, at the
same tune ss the rest of the field' M"
peculiarity in tbe treatment, was that eve
rV other pipe of the drill was stopped, so
that the rows of wheat were twenty inches
aparf, or double the usual distance. In
the spring, when the ground bid Lecome
sufficiently dry to work, a small .garden
hoe harrow wn- run between tho rows,
working the ground to the depth of about
three inches; this was done only once.
The effect of -tiiis working w as very appar
ent; the wheat took a rapid start and out
grew the rest of the field.
A the season advanced it grew tall and
trong, and no amount of wind or rain
had any effect to lay It down ; when the
head formed, their grcati r length was
rery apparent. It was backward in rip
ening, und the rest' of the field was cut1
and hauled in a week before tin was ready.
Now for theretnlt;he experimental wheat
yielded twenty-throe bushels to the acre,
and the rest yielded only nine bnebela to
the acre ; the quality of each was about
the same. Whether from defect in the
seed, or the wet eeason, or tlie late plant-Jen
ing, the Whole of my wheat was injured
both by rust and weevil, and the experi
mental n u t did not escniie it wusnffected
just as tiro rest was.
This experiment cannot be regarded as
entirely satisfactory ; the season wa ex
ceptional, the seed used wa inferior, and
the yield of the experimental part of the
field was not absolutely great, but only1 by
muny wseou with ihe ruatuf she crap which
wa a poor one, from tho effect a of the
rust and the weevil ; but the result is, un
der any cir"imiitahce8, sufficiently reason
able to attract the attention of farmers and
induce a further trial. Farm Joural.

A GOOD STORY.
Some of tlie student j of the Indiana
8tate UnivsrsUy were suspected of being
iu the habit of drinking brandy. Wheie
they obtained it was a mystery. Dr. Dai
ly determined to ferret out tbe secret.
Calling into a drug store, the proprietor
asked him "how that student, Mr. Carter,
came on t" Bmelling n rat, the doctor
anaweted in an evasive manner, aud soon
drew out of the apothecary thatthe stu
dents under suspicion had born in tbe
habit of purchasing bandy for the use, as
they said of a Mr. Carter; that they said
h was quite low and was kept alive by
stimulants ; that tbe young men seemed
rery devoted to him' Now the secret wo
out The Carter waa a fictitious character
and the doctor had tbe secret. However
he kept hi own counsel. The m-xt time
the student were assembled iu tbe chapel
for prayers, he cast his eyes over the
crowd and satisfied himself tbat Cartel
nurses were-ull present. Devotiou were
duly conducted, and then he lugubriously
reiuai h"d to them that he had a mournful
task to perform ; a fho president of tbe
university it became his duty to announce
tbe death of their feliowsludent Mr. Curler.
After a lingering illuess of several weeks,
a pjrtiotrf which time ho was kept alive
by titntilants, be had breathed bis iut
lie had no doubt that this announcement
would fall sadly on the ears of those who
had so faithfully attended to his wants,
but he hoped they would bear it with re
signation he hoped they would reflect on
the oft repeated words, "Memento mori,"
that he would detain them no longer,
hut le tve them to their own reflections!
I he result was the professors and but few
of the students bad heard of this man Car
ter, ho is bel" wa whispered.
None knew but the kind friends who at
tended him, and they would not tell ; and
the president seemed so deeply affected
that they did not like to ask him.
