atory of existing laws, and granting bonnj
ties to colored soldiers of the United States
who were fclaves previously to the 19th da
of April, 1871. The bill was referred to the
Military Committee. I
It is a singular fact that bounties have

granted to all other soldiers.
snlcration of justice dictates that Mr. Cobb's
bill should pass. Four-fifths, probably, of
all the colored soldiers had been slaves;

Those soldiers who were formerly slaves
should be placed on the same footing with

The Lost Heir of Linlituoow. This
is the name of Mrs. D. E. N. Southworth's
new novel, now in press, and to be publish
ed in a few days, by T. B. Peterson & Broth
er's, Philadelphia. It will command a very
large sale," as it is one of Mrs. Southworth's
most powerfully written efforts excitingand
sensational, and is fully equal, if not supe
rior to "Tried for Her Life," "Cruel as the
Grave,' "The Maiden Widow," The Fam
ily Doom," "The Changed Brides," T'Tbe
Brides Fate," "Fair Tlay" and "How He
Won Her," which have proved to be eight
of the most popular novels ever published,
and which are having unprecedented sales,
for Mrs. South worth, as a novelist, stands at
the head of all female writers. Her con
tentions are marked . bv originality, and
there is a purity and sweetness about her
language which gave peculiar charm to her
writings. Her characters are powerfully
and touchingly drawn, and we learn to loje
them because they are more natural than
effected. "The Lost Heir of Linlithgow
will be issued in a large duodecimo volume
uniform with Mrs. Soth worth's other works,
and will be sld at the low price of $1 75 in
cloth, or $1.50 in paper cover; or copies will
be sent by mail to any place, post-paid, by
the publishers, on receipt of the price. Reg

Marriage Separation Elopement.
A correspondent of The Golilsboro" News
writes from Mount Olive that on Sunday
evening tho 28th of January, the Jlev. W.
M. Kennedy performed the marriage cere
mony of Mr. Daniel Summerlin to Miss
Mary Malpass. The wedding feast was at
tended by only a few, nevertheless, all
things passed off very pleasantly, and ail
seemed to enjoy themselves, but especially
the bride and groom, who from all appear
ance had just started out on a life of joy and
happiness. Only a few days had elapsed
when it was generally reported that the
"new couple" were about to separate. 4
Their friends interposed and endeavored to
bring about a reconciliation, but, although,
their efforts were untiring, all attempts in
that direction were in vain. J ust about one
week after they were united in the bonds of
wedlock where they, in the sight of God
and witnesses, had pledged to take eacji
other for better or worse, the husband gath
ered his baggage and disappeared on the
morning train bound northward. During
the night following the young wife and a
Mr. Padget took passage on the train bound
southward, and eloped for parts unknown.
State Printing. On Friday last Judge
W. A. Moore heard a motion on the part of
counsel for Theo. N. Ramsay for an order
of injunction against the Secretary of State
to restrain that officer from delivering copy
to Wm. M. Brown, the appointee of Gov.
Caldwell, to execute the printing; and for
a writ of mandamus against thp Secretary
Upf State to compel that officer to deliver
copy to Theo. N. Ramsay, contractor on the
part of the ( teneral Assembly to execute the
printing. Messrs. W. II. Battle, Fowle,
Dupree and Devereux appeared for the
plaintiff. R. C. Badger appeared for the
Secretary of State and Wm. M. Brown, j
On yesterday Judge Moore delivered his
opinion. He denies the motion for an or
der of Injunction and grants the writ of
mandamus. If the Supreme Court will de
cide at this term, it is probable that an ap
peal will be taken.
I m porta NT. Tho attention of all persons
interested in sending or receiving mail
matter, is called to the following important
notice from the Post-master-General: j
44 Owing to the rapid increase in the mails,
and the establishment of many new Post
Offices throughout the country, this De
partment finds it necessary, in order to
facilitate the distribution, and to secure a
speedy transmission of the heavy mails now
passing, particularly over the trunk lines
oTrailroads, to request of the public, that
in all cases, except the large offices, the
nntnA of the countv. as well as the post of
fice and State, be superscribed upon letters,
..ironism. newBoaiers. and other matter to
be forwarded by mail." j
Let every one of our readers bear the
above in mind, when they address letters
to all small Post offices. We hope every
editor in the country will copy the above,
as 1U compliance will not only be a general
help to the public, but a particular help to
every elitor and publisher.

THE AMERICAN WASHER r
j PRICE, $5.50.
The American"Vasher Saves Money, Time, and
The Fatigue' of Washing Day . no Longer
Dreaded, but Economy, Efficiency, and
Clean Clothing, Sure. ..
In. calling public attention to this little
machine, a few of the invaluable qualities.
(not possessea by any otner wasning ma
chine yet invented,) are here enumerated, ;
It is ,the smallest, most compact, most
portable, most simple in construction, most
easily operated. A child ten years old. with
a few hours practice, can thoroughly com-'
prehend and effectually use it. Tnere is no
adjusting, no screws to annoy, no delay in
4 adapting ! It is always ready for use ! It
is a perieci nine wonuur t xi is a miniature
giant, doing. - more work, and of a better
quality, than the most elaborate and costly.
One half of the labor is fully saved by its
use and the clothes will last one-half longer
than by the old plan of the rub board. It
will wash the largest blanket. Three shirts
at a time, washing thoroughly ! In a word,
the ablution of any fabric, from a Quilt to a
Lace Curtain or Cambric Handkerchief, are
equally within the capacity of this LITTLE
GEM 1 It can be fastened to any tub aud
taken off at will. ! "
No matter how deep rooted a prejudice
inay exist against .Washing Machines, the
moment this little machine is seen to per
form its wonders, all doubts of its cleansing
efficacy and utility aro banished, and the
doubter and detractor at once become the
fast friends of the machine. ;
We have testimonials without end, setting
forth its numerous advantages over all oth
ers, And, from hundreds who have thrown
aside the unwieldy, useless machines, which
have signally failed to accomplish the ob
iectpromisecl in prominent and loud sound
ing advertisements. j . ; ... ' -
It Is as perfect for washing as a wringer is
for wringing. The pricocnother paramount
inducement to purcliasers, has been placed
so low that it is within the", reach of every
housekeeper, and there bf no article of do
mestic economy that will repay tho small
investment so soon.
V - o.ou.
All that is asked for this GREAT LABOR
SAVER, is a fair trial. We guarantee each
machine to do its work perfectly. -.-
