Flat Bock, North Carolina, as a
Resort for Invalids.
Eds. Herald : In a" recent commu
nication I spoke of the scenery and peo
t r vrc-n Vnrth Carolina. In this
propose to treat of the salubrity of
the climate, ana lis auapuuu w ii
son3 of weak lungs, and those subject
to throat ailments.
It has been common in former times
tMa rlo. nf nsiients to Florida
and South Carolina for relief, but lonff
experience and recent aiscovenw i
mitsai c-ionm nmvft ronrlusivelv that
an atmosphere laden with moisture,
such as prevails in those States, is most
objecuonaDie, ana inut in
proper location for the successful treat
ment or pulmonary disease there are
three conditions, each of which demand
strict attention, namely, altitude, mild
temperature, and pervious soil. -
The importance of the first condition
lies in the fact that the air of mountain
regions is very stimulating; it acceler
ates the circulation of the blood, quick
ens and deepens the respiration, and
gives bouyancy to the feelings. A
friend writing to me from Flat ltock a
few days ago says : "iiere x can
from morning to night without feeling
fatigued." The opposite of this is true
of low, moist countries. They engen
der weakness, languor and inactivity.
The importance of the second condi
tion is obvious, as weak and diseased
lungs cannot stand intense cold.
Tbe third condition is equally Im
portant, though not so apparent. -To
impress this more fully on the minds
of your readers I quote as follows from
the Scotch-American Journal of March
valuable paper on. the 'Relation
of Geology to the Consumption Death
rate,' has been communicated to the
Geological Magazine' by Mr. Whitta
ker of the Geological Survey. The au
thor's observations are mainly confined
to the counties of Surrey, Sussex and
Kent, In which he has made a geologi
cal and statistical examination. The
whole paper is replete with interesting
and valuable information, but we have
space only for the general conclusion to
which the author has beau led by the
examination. They artOas follows:
1. That on pervious soils there is less
consumption than on Impervious soils.
2. That on high lying pervious soils
there is less consumption than on low
lying, pervious soils. 3. That on slo-.
ping, impervious soils there is less con
sumption than on flat, impervious
soils. A. These references must be put
along with the other fact that artificial
removal of subsoil water alone, by va
rious sanitary works, ha3 largely de
creased consumption, from which fol
lows the general inference that wetness

to any extent. It is mentioned that
Dr. Bowditch ha3 made the same ob
servations In America, and contends
that soil moisture is one of the chief
causes of consumption in New Eng
land; and the Kegistrar-General of
Scotland, applying the theory to eight
large towns, accepts it as true. It is
very properly pointed out that these
observations introduce a new principle
and obj&t in carrying out drainage
works, aid consumptive people in choos

tend to the lessening of a disease which

WoxDEUPUii Sagacity of a Dog.
The Portland (Me.) Press says: The
following story, strange as it may ap
pear, is vouched by -several witnesses
whoso testimony is unimpeachable.-
A short time ago a female Newfound
land dog was in the habit of coming to
the house of a lady in this city who
would throw to it pieces of cold meat,'
which the dog would eat, and, having
satisfied Its hunger, go away again.
So confirmed, did this habit become,
that at a certain hour daily the lady
would expect the dog, and the animal
would put in an' appearance. A few
days ago, before feeding her, the lady
said to her, Why don't you bring mo
one of your puppies?' repeating the
question several times as she stood at
the window, the dog looking at her in
the face with an expression of intelli
gence, as If it understood every word
the hady said. , , , . .
The next day, to the lady's astonish?
ment.at the usual hour, the dog return
ed, and, lo and behold! was accompa
nied by alitte puppy. .The lady led
both dogs, ana men xook. uu uiu yuppjr
Into the window, when the old dog
scampered off and did not return for,
three days. At the end of that timef
the dog again appeared, when, after
feeding it, the lady said: Ncxt time
bring all your puppies, I want to see
them:" and yesterday morning, sure
enough, the dog returned accompanied
by three Newfoundland pups. Several
of the neighbors saw the whole trans
action, and declared tliat they consid
ered this oneoi tne most wuuuenui
proofs of the sagacity of the dog they
have ever known. Where the dog
came from and to whom it belongs is
not known, but we have the name of
the lady and also of those who were eye
witnesses to the occurrences as narrated

A Duelling Incident
An indiscreet gentleman, whej

ville, Kentucky, a few days since!, was
challenged by the that-is-to-be husband
of the insulted. While the challenged
party was reading the invitation jto go
out and be shot, his little daughter
came up and said, "Papa,mother want3
you." The father then turned to the
challenge-bearer and said, "This s my
little girl, whose happiness and educa
tion and living would be taken Ifrom
her were I to be killed. I have also a
wife and a baby whose welfare I jmust
look to. This meeting, if fatal toj me,
would deprive them 01 their only, sup
port. My opponent is a young J man,
without wife, or children, or family.
He has very little to lose." Thej challenge-bearer"
was .almost melted to
tears. Tho picture j ust drawn was true
to life, and he determined to return to
his principal and ask for a compromise.
The latter was a high-toned, chival
rous Kentucky gentleman ,whosej heart
at once responded to the appeal for
mercy. ; A. compromise was effected.
It was agreed that the duel shotild be
postponed till the first party got marri
ed and become the father of children.
Then they will both be on an equal foot
ing and can test each x other's , courage.

An Old-Time Tragedy.
A Mystery of Sixteen Years'Cleared Up
. Murder mil Out.
i From the Buffalo Courier.
The' people of Tonawanda and of
Grand Island are at present much in
terested in revelations said to have
been made in regard to the commission
of a fearful tragedy which horrified the
community sixteen years ago. There
may be those of our readers who will
call tho circumstances to mind, but
doubtless they are few. In the year
1855, iri a little settlement known as
Burgholtz, in the town of Wheatfield,
about six miles from Tonawanda,dwelt
a Prussian physician known as Dr.
Stanger, a man of some means and
llv known. One morning.
about Thanksgiving time, in the fall of
the year namea, a visuor iu nie uuusb
of the doctor found no one to answer
his call, and entering found the woman
who had been employed as housekeeper
lying dead upon the floor, and upon a
bed the corpse of her daughter, twelve
years lof age, both bearing ghastly
wounds which produced their deaths.
The discoverer of this scene of slaughter
immediately alarmed the neighbor
hood, and search was instituted for the
doctor " , , . ,
At length his dead body was found
by thd roadside more than a mile from
his h0use,indicating that he had either
been enticed in that direction, or that
fleeing from the murderers he had at
length been overtaken and disposed of.
Some purpose other than robbery must
have influenced the assassins, for none
of the property in the victim's house
was disturbed, even his gold watch re
maining in its accustomed place upon
the wall. A great excitement was ere
thp npio-hhorhood. and strenu
ous efforts were made to bring the
guiltyi persons tojusiice,oui an avaueu

toward whom suspicion pointed were
ni-oved azainst them and they were
released. Years passed on , the tragedy
becoming an old-time story, and it
tvi that thp mvsterv which en
shrouded it was never to be cleared
awayU But at last, as we are torn, rey
tirtinris hnvp boen made tending in
this case to verify the saying tljatmur:
der will out.
( The facts in our possession are as re
lated to our reporter, who, in company
with Detective Mitchell, instituted in
quires In relation to the topic which,as
before stated, is now of so great inter
est to those who reside in and near the
vicinitv where the Stanger murder was
committed. We cannot vouch for the
entire truthfulness of the statements
we now have to make,but only present
them as they are related. On Grand
Island.-at and after the time of the
murder resided witn nis iamny oue
Christian Forbeck, a man of rather ill
rrntpJhnt norainst whom no suspicion
as to his complicity in the crime was
directed. Later his business affairs did
not prosper,and atlength,perhapseignt
or nine; years ago, he removed 10 a
western State. Also near bailie
iivwi ninnnhv thfi name of Wasrner.
Of his reputation we have learned but
little, 'lie, too, removeu 10 me urai
some ykirs ago.
The present report, and winch has
renewed the interest in this affair of
the past, is that within the past few
weeks Christian Forbeck has expired,
and that upon his dying bed he made
full conlession tnat ne it was., wiui me
complicity of Wagner, who committed
the triple murder. Wagner, shortly
after he went away from thi3 state,
made his way to Michigan and there
ended his career by performing the
office of the hangman for himself. If
all this be true, it adds a thrilling final
act to the tragedy which sixteen years
agci was so terribly commenced. There
are now many who can remember sus
picious! circumstances against Forbeck,
which never before appeared to them
in the same light. One of these is re
lated to U3 by John Hupman, who now
keeps a grocery at the corner of Penn
sylvania and Fifth streets. Four years
after the murder Mr. Hupman, who
then lived in Tonawanda, as then did
also Forbeck, one evening conversed
with him upon subjects of criminal
acts, in the course of which Forbeck
significantly said "if all I have done
were known, I would have been upon
the gallows years ago." Perhaps more
about the murder and its perpetrators
will yet be brought before the world,
and if Forbeck is dead, and has left
such a confession as described, it may:
be publisn in lun dcian.

.; A Touching Letter.
Mr. John A. Nolan, of Chicago, form-.
erly "of Boston, writes to Mr. O. W.
Newt'omb, of that city, as follows:
' My Dear Friend You doubtless think
of my family and self as dead. I. am
happy to inform you that my wife and
babe arc nowwell. Our little daughter!
(our first born) was born in Lincoln
Park on Sunday morning, the 8th inst.
I had made a home of my coat, a sheet

Boston) was brought to us in our hour
of peril, thus saving the life of my wif
and, little one. How acceptable the
food has been, too ; but hundreds about
us have nearlydied from over-eating as
well as from exposure. The first thing
L got to eat was a "Boston cracker.'
I enjoyed it better than I ever enjoyed
a dinner.: I had a little money in my
vest pocket, which will keep us a long
while. We have a tent now and are

Immigration Treatment of j Northern
People at the South. '4
We propose to say a few plain words
in regard to a much talked Of subject.
In cool blood let us consider, for a while,
facts and things as they are. At the
outset let it be premised (and we do not
believe that any person of sense and
observation will deny it), that there is
a broad and distinct difference between
a Southern and a Northern Society.
Their manners, their education, their
habit of thought, their pursuits, their
ideas, their civilization, and even their
Christianity were dissimilar. A colli
sion of force occurred in the nation in
consequence of this dissimilarity and
antagonism. The Southern element of
manners, of education, of ideas and of
civilization, were overwhelmed and
overcome completely in this collision.
This brought us to the close of the war.
i What do we find now? Not by any
means a total obliteration bf all the
conditions which produced the war,
but on. the other hand, that the old
conditions to a great extent remain.
With the outward form of surrender,
complete and comprehensive as it was,
the populatibns of the South did not
divest themselves of all their previous
notionsideas and predilections. We
do not design now to speculate, philo
sophically, as to the possibility of a
population thoroughly indoctrinated in
certain opinions and classes of opinions,
throwing them off abruptly, and at once,
and adopting new ones, but we simply
allude to the present condition of
Southern society as a palpable fact;
Now. we observe, and we admit be
cause we do observe, that j t here is a
gradual, though slow, subsidence of
these peculiarities these old Southern
ideas and opinions. Their ideas were
the weaker and the- less tenable, a&d
when they took visible shape and effect
in the physical struggle of the war,
they yielded, and now, since the war,
are constantly, though, aS we said,
slowly yielding as against the attrition
of superior and better opinion. So that
we find in the South an incursion in
progress, as inevitable in its results as '
wasthe incursion of the armies, but it
is an incursion of opinion, and princi
ples, and ideas, advancing steadily, but
slowly ; yet, after all, like an " army
with banners," and with tho allies of a
more vigorous training, of greater
wealth, and of a superior civilization.
To partisans, to small neighborhood
politicians, to that hide-bound class in
the South (which is large), who " learn
nothing, and forget nothing," this is
looked at with the eyes of prejudice,
and they exclaim, "yankee innova
tions," "uprooting the institutions of
our fathers." But the honest, unpre
judiced, liberal thinking of the Southern
population welcome these innovations
of opinion as they do the traction en
gine or a cotton mill. The tendency of
all this Is evident. It is toward the
unification of the civilization of the po
pulations on the continent of North
America. - I
Nevertheless (for the above remarks
are preliminary,) it is undeniable that
a northern man coming to ! the South
at present, with such opinions as he
naturally entertains, and especially if
he be an open and avowed Republican,
is liable to experience a great many
unpleasant things. This is especially
so if he brings with him a family. 1
It is so on account of the condition
of society here, as explained above).
He finds that nearly all the churches',
tho institutions of learninsr. the religi
ous and other newspapers, and, indeed,
nearly all tne ramincations oi wnat i
called society are composed of, m and
managed by persons wrho were either
active in, or who assented to the rebel
lion. To have been a good conieuerauj
is a passport to popularity, not to say
respectability. On the other hand the
northern man is imbued with all this
impulses engendered at the North by
the effort to suppress the rebellion. He
had been educated to hate slavery and
secession, he had participated in pub
lic meetings, had marched in proces
sions, had assisted at the obsequies of
slain heroes, or had perhaps led troops
in battle. The result is that he finds
himself in a position where he is oblig
ed to abandon his convictions and his
manhood in order to be on social terms
with his neighbors. If he participates
in a Republican meeting, the local pa
