where the crowd was large. .Nothing or a

for exercising his authority in binding over
certain belligerents for making an attack on
theU. S. District Attorney, in Aw, the
Judge's presence, is "berated" by the Sen
tinel, as having no authority. But what

The Goldsboro Messenger says, "the state

fcotorinir with nutrid sores, the morbid ef
fect of hatred, malice and ill-will."

Yadktw Railroad. From the following
which we take from the Salisbury jaamm-
er. it would seem that the friends of this en
terprise are hopeful of its final construction :
'In pursuance of previous notice a meeting
of the citizens or wowan lnieresieu w uj
Yadkin It R., was held at the Court House
in Salisbury on Saturday last Mr. J. w.
Hall, presided. MaJ. Townsend, President
of the Chcraw and Salisbury it. iu, oeing
nresent by-appointmentaddressed the meet
ing, at length, upon the great importance oi
the proposed Railroad connection Deiween
Salisbury and Cheraw, and urged the no
xUvAfnmmT)t action to secure the char
ter and organize the company.
It will be remembered that by the term
of the charter of the Yadkin R. R., foO.000 of
stock must be subscribed and 5 per cent of
this sum paid in, before the Company can
onranize. Major Townsend pledged Stanly
and Anson, for one half of thia amount pro
vided Rowan would raise the balance. A
committee was appointed to solicit subscrip
tions at once and to report to the meeting at
8 o'clock p. m.. to which ' hour a recess was
taken. . Upon the reassembling ox the meet
ing at night the commtitee reported that
$15,000 had been subscribed. After addresses
from. Major Townsend, Dr. Keen, Major
Rabbins. Mr. Shober. and others, the sub
scriptions were increased to nearly $16,000,
and before the adjournment Major Town-
send was authorized to say to the citizens of
Stanly and Anson, whom he addresses this
week' In behalf of the Road, that Rowan
pledges herself to increase this ' sum to $25,-
000. The committee , appointed to canvass
for subscriptions is still at work to make
this pledge good, and, as we go to press, we
learn that over $19,000 have been received."

Grant has recently sent additional troops
to North Carolina, uarrow, ine uniuxi
States Marshal, with a cowhide the new
emblem of his authority can arrest any
man in any portion of the State without
troops or posse to aid him.
This display oi troops is inwuueu w jus
tify it s next year when Grant's election
comes off, at which time, we venture to
predict, there : will be a greater display of
troops than ever known1 before at the polls.
The "emblem of authority" alluded to by
the Sentinel, was once one or tne instru
ments of torture in the hands of the Ku
Klux, and by a member of that murderous
gang, delivered over to a United States
officer. We doubt not, however, in the
hands' of such a man- as CoL Carrow, he
could make a dozen of the craven hearted
wretches surrender at will. If the Ku Klux
continue, as - heretofore, to, take courage
from the apologies which the Sentinel per
sistently offers for their acts of violence, the
people of North Carolina may expect the
President to send us all the troops necessary
to restore law and order in North Carolina.
Forbearance is at an end. Recent de
velopments having satisfied tne pupuc
mind mat sworn members of the Ku k.iux
Klan occupy seats in the legislature,
what security have the authorities and the
law-loving - people, that the Constitution
will receive the support of. such double
sworndegislators. May we not conclude
that such characters are traitors exposed,
and that their whole . aim will bo treason i
Is it not a fact, that after they solemnly
swear to support the Federal and State Con
stitutions, they do so with a mental reser
vation, and hate in their hearts the govern
ment of their country ? It looks so; hence
we are not surpised that they are Ku Klux,
and we are not - surprised - that the uenerai
Government has determined to put them
down at any and all hazzards. The Sentinel
should well weigh its words, in a crisis like
the present. What constitutes treason?
From the Wmston Sentinel we cull the
following Items of news :
!Mr. J. D. Davis, who has not been heard

Tobacco Stamp Cancellation. In re
ply to Inquiries made by Supervisor Corwin,
at Cincinnati, Ohio, Commissioner Douglass
states that it is the duty of the local revenue
officers, and primarily of assistant assessors
and detectives who may be designated and
specially charged with the oversight of the
business of manufacturing and selling of
tobacco and cigars, with the packages before
them, and with every opportunity of mak
ing a thorough and careful examination and
inspection, to determine in sucn cases
whether the cancellation is or is not proper,
whether it conforms to the requirement of
the law and regulations, or fall short of such
No . stamp upon a wooden package of to
bacco is properly cancelled unless a portion
thereof is sunk into the wood of the box by
a steel die, so as to leave an indentation into
the wood. The mere cutting of a stamp wit:h
a sharp instrument or a slight indentation
of the stamp .without the breaking of the
paper or penetrating the wood of the box,
do not answer the requirements of the law.
The date of cancellation, or, as the case may
be, that of the manufacturer or proprietor,
must not be omitted on the stamp. " Cut
packages" of tobacco, where all the marks
and brands are gone which are required for
identification, may properly be seized, and
the owner or possessor required to furnish
evidence that the tax has been paid, or fail-
ing,8ubinit to a rorreiture oi sucn woacw.
Mad dogs cure for thier bite.
There is. not a town j or city in the Union,
of the same size, can produce as great a
number of dogs, as our own - dear city of !
Oaks. It is our opinion, that take them al
together, bull, newfoundland, setter, point
er poodle, rattarrier, common cur, fice,
of every species, - and crosses without a
name, that we have at least seven hundred.
Out of this number, it is reasonable to sup
pose that a few may "run mad," and it is to
be feared, somebody will be bitten. In the
latter event we propose the following rem
edy because we have confidence in it--afld
because we find it in the Hillsboro Jte
corderawtii it is possible, that it would not
have appeared in that paper, without a rea
son. If Evans is acquainted with Frank
lin Dyre, why didn't he say so T But we
won't argue mat point iust now, as some
body may be waiting for this very remedy :
Franklin Dyre, a highly respectable and
intelligent farmer of Galena, Kent county,
Maryland, gives the following as a sure
cure for the bite of a mad dog. As will be
seen, he has tested it with the most gratny-
ing results: j 'V' v
Elecampane is a plant well known to most
persons and is to be found in many of our
gardens. Immediately after, being bitten,
take one ounce of the root of tie plant the
green root is perhaps preferable, but the
dried will answer, and may be found in our
drugstores, and was used by me-slice or
bruise, put it in a pint of , fresh milk, boil
down to a half a pint strain, and when cold
drink it fasting at least six hours after
wards. The next morning, repeat the dose
prepared as the last and this will be suffi
cient It is recommended that after each
dose nothing be eaten for at least six hours.
. I have a son mat was bitten by a mad dog
eighteen years ago, and four other children
in the neighborhood were also bitten , they
took the above dose, and are alive and well
to this day. And I have known a number
of others who were bitten and applied the
same remedy. It is supposed the root con
tains a principle which, being taken up by
the blood in its circulation, counteracts or
neutralizes the deadly effect of the virus of

remedy that I am i willing you should give

A Marriage on Sunday.-By special

pleased with the announcement,' thai they
were "man and wife." The ceremony was
performed with all due solemnity, and the
"salutation" of the bride by the gfoom,
gave evidence that these "two willing

who had just been paid about $100 Wages
for hard work, one of them attired himself
as a woman, and the other put on a jjair of

the boy in the feminine attire made lbve to
him ; the Celt was smitten, and asked to be
married. He gave all his , money ito his

Robeson Court, this week. The Wil
mington Star, of Friday! last,1 ' says heriff
McMillan, of Robeson county, arrived ' in
this city yesterday afternoon,, for the pur
pose of taking charge of the prisoners, Pop
Oxendine and Wm. Goins, now confined in
our county jail,and conveying them to, Lum-
berton, where they are to stand their trial
before the Superior Court which meets in
that place next week. Pop Oxendine, it
will be remembered, is implicated ir some
of the outrages-committed in Robesbn and
is believed to have had some connection
with the Lowrey gang. Wm. Goins is the
mulatto who shot and killed one of his own
color, with whom he got into a difficulty at
Swifflfifiwn some months since, and was
brought here for safe keeping.
We are not surprised to hear our Jcotem-
norarv of the Newbern Times asking that
simple justice, according to the evidence,
be meted out to ttie Ku Klux who are to be
tried in this city next month. So, will ev
ery lover of law and order say. Only those
who fear justice talk and write against the
efforts being made to restore . the good
name, in a measure gone, to the State.
Who asks for the blood of the innocent?
Not the law not the loyal people. No ; we
would rather let go a score of guilfy ones,
than knowingly punish an innocept man.
But the time is at hand, ine pice nas
been a wild and a desperate one Here,
the chase after the poor black and the loyal
white man must terminate, and the- Consti
tution which was adopted as a part of the
bargain to the restoration of our j State to
her place in the Union, must and shall be
respected. The rights, religious and politi
cal, of all. "without regard to race or pre-
rtitinti " shall be nrotected. If
V "J M, a
men, high in social position, have violated
the fundamental law of the land, they must
suffer, nevertheless. When it p made
plain that neither money or high social po
sition will screan a man from punishment
where it is deserved, then we may pook for
peace. That time, is fast approaching.
Ake Sunday Makriaoes iLfiEQAi,?
This is a question which has beerl gravely
considered and discussed, recently,1 in a
Northern State, and we think, by men learn
ed in the law, decided in the affirmative.
"Pronertv. the possession of which vras claim
ed bv right of marriage, introducedjthisques-
ton to the Courts, and as the marriage was
performed on the Sabbath aay, me contract
was declared null and void.upon the ground,
that contracts cannot be entered into on the
day of rest. We look upon the oscision as
foolishly unjust, uncalled ror, ana unwar-
rented, and calculated to work an evil in
society, among the discontented, resulting
in the disolution of many a household, in the
locality where the decision is held as law.
To our mind, Sunday is the most jappropri
ate day, in the whole seven, for the celebra
tion of the rites of matrimony. "Whom God
hath joined together, let no manputassun
der" and "the Sabbath was madl for man"
and, both men and women, when they
enter the marriage state, believe fhey enter
upon a state of bliss and happiness and
there could not be a better day ciosen, for
ontorinir the realms of happinessL than the

Kp.We learn from the Sentinel bf the 26th
inst., that its Editor voluntarily jv isited the
State Pen one day last week,and while there
interviewed that old thief, and harlot, Kin
chie Ann Edwards, who is serving out a
term of two years as a reward lfr a life of
as low-down meanness, as ever falls to the
lot of any human creature. The Sentinel
says "she was very penitent, and declared
that she would never curse a juge or any
other person if she could get out of that
place.? Kinchie never cursed jthe J udge
when ho was about to pass sentence on her.
She was, however, a little indepefident, and
iv imn hv His Honor, that I he would
have to give her a good longtime to reform
r otii wnnlrf send her for two vears to the
aut uuu .
State prison, her only reply, was, "I'd as
'leeve gothar as any where else.' . , .
But, if the forked tongue wretch i thinks
she is suffering for a contempt! pf Court,
what a warning it should prove o those out
of the Penitentiary who indulge in words,
not more refined, against the entire J udi
ciary of the State,from the Superior Court to
the Federal, the latter include. Kinchie
Ann is in the right place ; her Iname: may
be found on our criminal docket for a long
term of years, reaching back taf the period
when she first entered upon a 4isolute life.
