nothing occurred of an unpleasant nature,

Saturday night last and the day following
this locality was sufficiently rained, for
which our people seemed very grateful.

TriE MOST DABI2TQ BUEQLART anil TO I
bery, perpetrated in our city for several"
3' ears, took place at the residence of Jordan
Womble," Sr., Tuesday, 1st instant, just at
break of day. The house was entered on the
lower floor, through the passage door, and
the robber went to the bed side of Mr.
Womble, and took his clothes, which were
on a chair; and deliberately took a money
purse, and contents, (190.00) and was in the
act of departing, when Mr. W. aroused, by
some noise, mado by the villian, sprang
L from his bod, and as quick as thought pur
sued, and fastened on to the fellow, while
yet in the passage. A scuffle ensued, and
the robber, with some instrument, dealt
Mr. W. a blow on the forehead, which
felled him to the floor. The robber escaped
with his booty. - Mr. Womble's wound is
of the nature of a cut about two inches in
length painful, though not dangerous
Dr. E. Burke Haywood, was sent for, and
dressed it. 'Squire Whitaker, with an' of
ficer, was sent for, and the proper steps
taken to bring the delinquent to a hearing.
It appears, that within a week's time, the
residences of three of our best citizens have
been entered by burglars James M. Har
ris, Kemp P. Battle, and Jordan Womble,
Sr. These are but few of tho depredations,
however, committed recently within" jmr
ity limits, and up to this writing, our po
lice have failed to make any arrests. We
think a few hundred dollars paid to R.! B.
Craddock, of Richmond, ,Va.; to come and
reside in our midst a few week?, wftuld! be
money well spent. .
What is t6 Become oy them T Tho
Telegram and Era will have run their course
ns soon as the election is over. Both can be
liought cheap . as dirt. How much for the

them both. - '

parture,and a desperate effort to shake Hol

So far as Nichols & Gorman, and the Tele
gram are concerned, if we were to give it
away, it would be a more valuable i ac
quisition to the donor than was the Sentinel
office of Mr. Turner. The types and press
on which the Telegram is printed, were
bought with the hard earnings of the pro
prietors. They were not bought with bor
rowed money ,and no man has been defraud
ed out of one cent in their purchase. iNo
suit has been instituted to recover $5,000,
which might have been borrowed to become
owners thereofland whether we give it away,
"or sell the Telegram, it will be our own
property which we dispose of, and no one
but ourselves will derive profit or loss by the
operation. Are we understood T i eiegram.
We trust the Sentinel will have a good time
over its party pap, sucked and wrung from
the hard earnings of the people of North
Carolina. In the language of Holy Writ,
we say unto that paper, " Eat, drink and be
merry Cor to-morrow you die "yea, verily,
to-morrow a few more moons, and all that
remains of the Sentinel newspaperwill have
passed away into utter insignificance-too
remote, to admit of a thought of con
tempt. ' The Era, will live ; it will live,as the
principles which it advocates are' as lasting
as eternity itself! It will live by the pat
ronage and tho love of a people who know
their rights, and dare maintain them ! It
will live when tho last enemy xf a Republi
can gov ernment will bo buried so low and
so deep, that tho hand of resurrection will
never reach him! It will live as the advo
cate of Constitutional liberty, and the hater
and persecutor of Ku Klux and revolution
ists, know by what ever name I It will live,
to watch the enemies of the Union, and to
hunt down and expose tho very men who
now predict its death ! Snarl ! snap ! growl !
La-sh your sides and gnash your teeth with

it cease to expose the meanness of tho ene
mies of this glorious State, and this proud
and gallant Union.
The Ku Klux arrested in Johnston and
brought to this city last week and held to

grounds, as charged by the Sentinel.

The idea that there are timid white

Wayne, is enough to provoke a smile on
the most rigid countenance !
A RATTISNAKE IN THEV " HORNETS'
Nest." The Charlotte, Bulletin has the fol
lowing snake item.
44 A tolerable sized Rattlesnake was at
tacked by our junior oi Wednesday after
noon, on our premises, and after a short en
counter his Snakeship was conquered by the
application of a hoe blade. It is dangerous
times among children when snakes have
the run of the city."
The Messenger learns that during prayer
meeting in the Methodist church at Boon
Iill, on Tuesday ever.ing last, l'ghtning
struck a tree near one of the windows. Mr.
Wm. Langley, who had is head in the win
dow at the time, and also Mr. Kedar Whit
ley and his son, and a lady were stunned
by the lightning, the first three very badly.
Mr. Langley was some time in coming to
his senses ; the flash had passed over his
head, leaving a high ridge from one side
to the other.
J uoe Moore. The Charlotte Democrat
of AUgust 1st, says of Judge Moore : Judge
Moore has been holding, during the past
week,1 a special term of the Superior Court
for Mecklenburg. The court will be con
tinued for twovor three weeks longer, with
the hope of clearing off the civil docket.
We never have any business in the court
house, and of course do not idle away time
by listening to the lawyers and Judge ex
pound law, but wo have-been informed by
several of the lawyers that they are pleased
with Judge Moore. One of the oldest mem
bers of the bar said he made him think of
old times, and a good old plain farmer re
marked that ; If, we always had such' a
prompt Judge as Moore, the lawyers of this
section would soon be out of business.

A Remarkable Couple. CoL Zeb. Mor
ris of this county, says the Charlotte Hoike,
married to his present wife on the 13th day
of January, 1814. They have raised 12 chil
dren, 11 of whom married. They have lived
the whole period of their married life of 57
years, on the farm where he was born, 85
years ago. : It may almost be said of the ven
erable couple, as it was of Moses of old, that
their -44 eye is not dim, nor their natural
foreer abated. " He keeps the finest horses
in the county, and can ride 40 miles a day
with but little fatigue. He is an elder in
Philadelphia Church, of which his son-in-law,

A Fact that Cannot be Denied. In
conducting the campaign of the election
just held, the journals of the last Legisla
ture could not be had from which to expose
the extravagance of the Conservative Legis

finished his work, or he purposely witheld
them from the public ; and notwithstand
ing this, that party have been ingloriously
defeated in North Carolina. - 1 i
Free Train Offered to Emigrants
for Salt River. There is a rumor about
town, that President Smith telegraphed one
"gay and - festive neighbor," one day last
week perhaps Saturday, asking at what
time would the defeated about Raleigh t be

take them "up Salt River." Have'nt heard
the reolv. It was a cruel joke. I inasmuch

The Warranton Gazette of the 29th ult.
says, "On Sunday night last, some thief or
thieves entered the private apartment of our
friend and neighbor Walter A. Montgome

burning in the room, and abstracted from
his vest pocket sixty dollars in money, his
hat and Sunday coat. It was doutbless the

is keptMn the office. Dr. Willis Alston's
roonTand office being in the building and
adjoining room he was visited and relieved
of his pocket change, amounting to about
twenty dollars, together with one or two
articles of clothing. All attempts, so far to
obtain any clue asto the perpetrators of
this daririg robbery, have proved vain and

Another Writ of Habeas Corpus.
On Tuesday last B. S. Buchanan, sheriffj of
Jackson county, was taken down $o Frank -linton

Since Vrrlting the above, we learn that
fudge Watts vacated tho proceedings
against Buchanan as had before Judge
Boyden, and upon his own warrant, held
Buchanan to bail in $5,000 for a violation of

was before Squire Whitaker Monday, to
show cause why he should not vacate the

matter was placed in the hands of Constable
Porter to close up, by dispossessing the de

jWe have no hesitation in expressing j our
ppinioh that the tale as told by the Times is
in strict accord with the real facts conriect-

from the Messenger or the Raleigh Sentinel.

Lit appears as we learn from a reliable
urce that a colored man was going along

what disorderly, and a policeman attempted
to arrest him ; the man attempted to elude
him when the policeman fired at the man
who was in a crowd, and the shots were let
go iudiscrimately. The culprit, howeverj
managed to escapo ; the reckless firing by
the policeman created considerable excite
ment and much feeling was exhibited.
The police again cot on tho track of tho dis
orderly man and captured him, and while
going into the Exchange Hotel the extited
crowd there attempted a rescue and isuc
ceeded. i -
The policeman sought refuge in the s Ho

drawn pistol and exclaiming: "Get away
from here, you d d sons of b s," fired his
pistol, one shot striking an old colored man
standing some distance from the immedi

most instantly. The policeman again
sought safety in the HoteL the doors of

immediately opened from the Hotel win

being fired, which took effect in but three
instances throe men being wounded,! one
seriously and two slightly. Not a single
shot was tired by the crowd. The police
man escaped, and several prominent gen

influence in allaying the excitement and
causing the crowd to disperse,

going far toward restoring order. - j:

the disturbance of yesterday was more than
anticipated, and that an understanding par
