The county commissioners of
Wake county hare granted one
license for the sale of wine and
ber. This, we nnderstand, is for
the propose of testing the local
option fair So far as if applies to
wines and beer containing no
rpiritoous liqnore. No other license
will be granted nntit the Snpreme

Missus. W. C. SIuxboe and
C. B. ATCOCX hare pnrchased an
interest in the Goldsboro Argus and
together with Jos. E. Robinson,
the founder of the paper, will Boon
enlarge it. These gentlemen have
the ability to getjnp a first class
paper, and they possess the energy
and plockto supply the place of
the Meuenger which goes to Wil
mington, If the people of Golds
boro will giT it that hearty support
that they hare always giren the
lfcstenffry their interest will not
suffer for want of a lire newspaper.
New Hajtovxr county having
failed to vote one hundred thou
sand dollars subscription to the
Wilmington and Onslow railrxid,
steps are being taken for a vote by
the city of Wilmington on the prop
osition. If our Onslow friends
with to hasten the day when they
will hare a railroad they must take
hold themselves and aid in the en
terprise. A little encouragement
on their part to the East Carolina
Land and Railway Company will
insure the beginning of a work
which will eventually lead to what
the people of the county want.
The citizens of Uot Spring,
North Carolina, have complained
to the interstate commerce com
mission against tbe Western N. C
dirisioa of the K. & D. railroad
and its connecting line, tbe East
Tennessee, irginia and Georgia
railroad, for discriminating against
them. They want the commission
to arm them with such swords of
defence as will enable them to suc
cessfully attack the ;,hydra-headed
monster." They ask for one thou
sand, dollars damages and such
otber relief as the commission may
see fit to grant. From the number
of petitions and complaints going
in it is evident that the commission
will have ne idle bread to ear it all
are heard and considered.
SPECIAL TAX BONDS.
The suit against the State of North
Carotfna and Auditor Roberts came
an "before the Circuit Court at Hal-
eigh last week, Judges Bond and
Seymour presiding, and was argued
on demurrer. The Judges differed
in opinion and the case will be cer
tified to the Supreme Court of the
United States. These are the
fraudulent bonds authorized by the
- LrniiTVELl) Legislature near
twenty jears ago, for whkh the
people received virtually nothing.
The State as a matter of course will
resist payment to tbe bitter end.
SlLSATOK Sherman recently
made a speech before the Illinois
Legislature which was quite differ
ent in tenor from his rather con
ciliatory speech at Nashville. Im
mediately after the delivery of the
speech a representative of the St.
Louis Q lobe-Democrat interviewed
the members as to their presidential
preference and they stood 46 for
BUU3S and 19 for Shebmajj .
The latter gentleman would doubt
less hare had better lack if he
bad repeated his Nashville speech.
THE C. F. k Y. Y. RAILROAD
TEX I) IT TO DEEP WATER.
The 3hptf ft Obterver in a notice
of tbe proceedings of the last an
nual meeting of the stockholders
of the C. F. & Y. V. Eailroad,
W are proud ot thi lino a rail
way built and operated by North
CarotiaJsas for North Carolisiaaa and
bop ctwt thing- or it for the benefit of
th State at Urge.
We rejoice with the Seta d; 06
server, that there is one railroad In
the State distinctively North Car
olinian and we are anxious to see
it connected with others that ought
to be, if not already, equally dis
tinctive as State institutions.
The y. tl' O. closes its article,
which is very complimentary to
the management with this para
graph: W are aailoua to see tbe C. F. 3t
T. V. extend its eastern terminus to
deep water on oar coast. With such
xteaeioa. tijint a line straight
tfcroacfc the State from the southeast to
the xuthweai, we beliere the road
would do ae jnuch as any road possibly
eooldto develop the hidden resources
ef North Carolina, and so brine wealth
to our people.
2fow this is just the thing we
want. The road from Goldsboro
to Morehead City is already dis
tinctively North Carolinian. Build
the connecting link from Goldsboro
to the CF.Jk Y. V. and then we
will have the line from the south
east to the northwest, and a bright
future for our North Carolina ports.
We have no desire to start the
tap in the old spring topic the
A. & N. C. IS. as it seems to be
life sustaining without the applica
tion of artificial means to infuse
the life-giring substance, but we
know we speak the sentiments of a
large majority of the people of the !
coon ties that own stock in it, in say- j
tug they earnestly desire to make it
a part of the C. F. & Y. V. system. ,
Secure this connection note, with
- the understanding thai at the ez-piraiic-A
of the lease of the North
Carolina, road to the Ii. & D. it
shall also become a part of the sys
tem, and we will hare two lines of
railway extending throngB the
Stat in different directions with
Morehead City and sew lierne as
outlets. Then we will begin to
realize the dreams of Governors
Dvdley and Morf.hf.ad. This is
the only hope lor building up the
ports of New Berne and Morehead
City, and the building ui of these
will help this entire sectien of the
State. Of course the railro.ul cor
porations that are not distinctively
North Carolinian will bitterly op
pose such ;i move if the State
authorities dare to make ,t. lo
thev run the State!
THE SI MMER RESORTS.
The heated term is now upon us
however fickle the weather may
seem. This is probably the last
cool spell we shall have until iater
in the fall. The sud will soon pass
the meridian and while retiring
from it will shine with increased
force for sixtv or ninety
Flannels, overcoats and winter ap
parel may as well be laid aside and
the possessor of tneni buckle down
to the sweltering task of trying to
keep cool. The next great question
is, where shall we go to obtain the
necessary comfort and recreation?
Morehead City is always before us
and easy of access while Beaufort
from the days of the long past
stands without a rival as to com
forts, health and pleasure. Nag's
Head also offers indncements.
which are highly increased by the
people who are met with at that
resort. The real old North 'aro
linian and Virginian blend in beau
tiful assimulation and rival each
other in the old time amenities of
life at the latter place.
But to the low lander there is
nothing like a trip to the moun
tains. There are the high hills
towering above the clouds, the
green slopes of the mountain sides,
the rippling of the gushing stream
as it leaps down the cliffs and
rocks on its meandering course to
the sea all conspiring to make
tti rir md toils of
the past, look down with pleasant ;
composure on the trnggling
masses below them.
But again, New Berne should not
be overlooked. The Hotel Albert
will make you as comfortable as
nv n ace. l nejseuse river wun
the juncture of forces with the
Trent will give as
breezes, as pleasant sails, as in
vigorating rowing and as tine fish
ing as can be found anywhere.
PAMLICO (OCSTY AND THE RUI.-i
ROAD DEBT, j
At the meeting of the Board of
.Magistrates of Pamlico connty on .
the first Monday in Jnne the Board, !
bv resolution, instructed the Board I
of Commissioners of the county to
pay no more on the railroad debt
until the county received proper!
credit, by reason of Craven connty'
refunding and compromising the
said bouded debt. ;
The proiosition is but a fair one
and bears on its tace single handed J
justice, u hen Pamlico assumed.
her proportion of the debt of tbe
mrtf kr ennnfv th AAknmiition W.1A I
ha do1 fh. ht q b ,hn P.in.
lated ana tne amount tnen out-
standing. But, if Craven subee-
quently compromised that indebt-,
ness whatever redaction f tbe
same was made, should be shared
by all the payers interested equally
and uniformly. II a bond for one
thousand dollars at tbe time of the
adjustment of the debt, between
the counties of Craven and Pamli
co, was subsequently reduced by
a compromise, to five hundred dol-,
lars": it would seem butjnst that
inasmuch as Craven had been the !
gamer by the compromise of one
half, that Pamlico should also be
a gainer of a like proportion. This
we presume to be the position
taken by the justices of Pamlico
ami of its fairness we think no one
But was there i compromise
when the county of Craven refunded
her bonded debt '
We think there vas not. It has
always ieen understood, and we
think it is true, that Craven re
funded her debt, giving new londs
for old ones with the interest ac
crued and unpaid added. For in
stance, a bond fr one thousand
dollars with five years interest ac
crued and unpaid entered into the
refunded debt as thirteen hundred
dollars bearing interest trom tbe
date of refunding, which was in
fact au iu re.ise ui ; iie interest
bearing deb: ami not a rednctiou.
The reason assigned inr this course
by those engaged in refunding the
debt, we understand is that the
holders of the old bonds were ob
taining judgments again.' the
county and by wiifs of mandamus
compelling the county to meet its'
obligations, to the great distress
of tax paeraaiul ultimate ruin of
the coBimiiiiitv. llnre the re

ditions at the time, and upon as is
supposed the best that could be!

of the case, would seem to change J

should be brushed twice a day.
The proper time is on rising in the
morning aud ou retiring at night.
In the morniug a a?h may te
used. Brush gently over the
crowns of the teeth. This removes
any mncous that ha collected
during the night and leaves the
mouth in a refreshing condition.
Just before retiring a tooth powder
should be employed aud particles
of food lodged between the teeth
removed, which, when left for sev
eral hours, result in the fermenta
tion of an acid, which causes soft
ening of the tooth-structure, and
thus promotes decay. After eating,
a quill toothpick and floss silk
should be used lor removing the
debris. Dr. Gilbert.

Kev. L. O. Wiche. pastor of the
Methodist church at this place, on
Saturday last, while at his home,
was attacked by a party of the
f&ood citizens of Aarora and vicini
ty, who then and there, with inten
tion and forethought, did give him,
the said pastor, a very large pound
ing with hams, flour, sugar, coffee,
and other weapons too numerous to
mention. Whereupon, the said
llev. h. O. Wiche did charter a
boat and repair to Ocracoke with
his family, in good order, but with
tbe promise that he would return
to tbe charge in a short time. This
people will feed the preachers.
On the morning of June irth, a
gloom of sadness was cast over our
town on account ot the death of
Mr. Taul Lincke who was shot and
killed while in bed and supposed to
be asleep. A Coroner's jury was
sammoned and tried tbe case. The
verdict of the jury that Mr. Lincke
was killed by a pistol shot in the
handg of W. A. Potts. Mr. Lincke
lived on the farm of Col. Shaffer,
ofKaleigh. and was a hard work
ing farmer, a German by birth, an
educated man, and to be thus
brutally murdered in the still hours
of the night is enough to arouse
the shame and indignation of oar
whole community, to think that
there is among us one so cowardly
mean as to kill a man asleep. Mrs.
Lincke was arrest as being acces
sory to the crime, but no evidence
was produced sufficient to bind her
to court, she was released. Mr.
Potts was committed to jail. Mr.

Revenue Raid T)r. Blackuall Makes a
Ou Wednesday evening a party
of revenue officers, with Dr. G. W.
Blacknall at the head of them, left
this city to make a raid upon the
illicit distilleries in Johnston coun
ty, and it was quite late in the
night when they arrived in the
neighborhood. They found one
distillery in full operation, but
could find no owner for it. They
went to work, however, and de
stroyed the still and all that could
be found appertaining to it. The
owner must have "gotten wind" of
the Doctor s intended visit, or else
he might have been at home to re
After finishing np their work at
this place they proceeded a short
distance further, found a second
establishment of a like character,
and this too running on lull time.
They were more fortunate in this
case and capt ured the owner, who
was William T. Holland. They
destroyed the still and everything
connected with the manufacture of
''blockade Hquor" around the
premises. They then returned to
the city with their prisoner, and as
the District Court is in session he
was put upon his trial at once.
The grand jury had been dis
charged, and it looked as though
t be "blockader" would have to re
main in jail until the next term of
couit. He, however, plead guilty
to the charge of illicit distilling,
and was sentenced to imprison
ment for ninetv davs and to nav a
fine of 'r'oOO.
'This looks like speedy justice.

a hump upon its back and a tail of

ONE OF KEY'S POEMS.
The following ia the most familiar of
the poems attributed to P. 8. Ney. He
is eaid to have written it in the album
of one of his school girls May 2G, 1S20
Though I of the chosen, the choice6t.
To fame pave her loftiest tone:
Though I 'mong the brave, the bravest.
My plume and my baton are gone.
My eagle that mounted to conquf t
Hath Btooppd from his altitude high,
A prey to a vulture the fouleet.
No more to visit the sky.
One sigh for the hopes that have per
One tear for the wreck of the past,
One look upoall A Imwe herinbed,
One lingering loot, 'tis the last.
And now from remembrance I banish
The glories that ehone m my train:
O, vanish, fond memories, vanish,
Return not to sting me again !
Ht HbLlT NEEDS.
Mr. Whittier is quoted as saving
"It's a great thing to own a little bit of
the Lord's earth straight up to the
heavens. A man feels better for it."
I covet not Chateau in Spain
My wants are few and yerv plain;
I would not have the muss and care j
That costly palaces must wear,
I would not have a menial band
To come and go at my command,
1 hanker not for velvet gear,
Nor diamonds pure as Peri's tear:
Take all tbe baubles high and low
That Fashion's victims love to show .
I would not raise a finger up
In hope some one would fill mv cup
With choice champagne or rich Tokay.
While fountains leap along the way
With water pure for thirsty lips.
Whereto the wild bird comes and dips
His pretty beak and flirts his wings.
And as he goes with rapture sings,
No all I ask is one small spot
Of common earth a little plot
Whereon might grow a stately tr e
A marvel seems a tree to me,
A wondrous birth of sun and air.
That wills to be, and it is there,
1 With all the glory of a thought
i From out the depths of being wrought
1 long with all my human zeal.
As rock, and tree, and blossm feel.
That one small acre should be mine,
Whereon should trail the graceful vine,
And not the less potato grow
And wholesome pea and bean make
, Most true, I weave an idle verse-
Bat then, I
might have done much
Might speculate and steal and
And be a millionaire dead beat.
Will no one give to me a rod
Of blessed earth, for love of God?

Own Yonr Own Homes.
Every man, whether he is a work
ingman in the common acceptation
of the word or not, feels a deep in
terest in the management of the
affairs of the city, county, and
State in which he lives whenever
ne owns a uome. ne is more pa
triotic, aptly says our worthy con
temporary, the Industrial Gazette,
and in many ways is a better citi
zen than the man who simply rents
and who has but little if any assur
ance of how long it will be before
he can be ordered to move; to which
may be added in many cases the
saving of more money." Of course
it requires some economy to lay up
a sufficient amount of money to
purchase and pay for a home; "but
this very fact, if properlj- carried
out after the home is acquired, may
be the instrument of furnishing the
means to commence and prosecute
a business upon your own responsi
bility. True, in "some cases it will
require more economy, perhaps,
than we are now jpracticing. But
the question with every man, and
especially if he is the head of a
family, is, Can he afford it? That
ii, can he afford to live up his
wages as last as he earns them
without laying up anything for the
lic.ure: It he is the head of a fam
ily, he is obliged to pay rent, and
it does not require very many years
of rent paying to make up an
amount sufficient to purchase and
pay for a comfortable home. You
have to pay the rent. This you
say you cannot avoid and be hon
est. ell, you cannot be honest
with your family unless you make
a reasonable attempt to provide
them a home of their own in case
anything should happen to you
And the obligation to do this
should be as strong as the one to
pay rent or provide the other neces
sanes for the comfort of your fami
iy. w nen you own a Home, vou
feel a direct interest in public
affairs that otherwise you might
consider were of little interest.
Freedom from Care.
There is no subject on which men
oftener err in theory, as well as in
practice, than how to be happy. It is
natural ana proper that we should
banish unreasonable solicitude and
vexatious cares, and live peaceably
with ourselves, it any prefer anx
iety to contentment, and derive
happiness from pain, their prefer
ences will be amply gratified in the
common course of events; and their
philosophy is useful only when
difficulties perplex and miseries
torment. It is the mind which
characterizes the man, and it is the
mind that should be disencumber
ea oi au needless anu pernicious
cares. .But nothing is so misun
derstood as freedom from cares.
It is supposed bv some to exclude
concern for those around us, and
thus it degenerates into selfishness;
it is imagined by another to with
draw attention from misery and
want, and thus it becomes inhu
manity and cruelty; bv a third par
ty it is supposed to allow no atten
tion to the advancement ol" society,
mil thus it is UL.social and morose;
by a fourth it is thought to forbid
a regard to person and interest, and
thus it degenerates into slovenli
ness, and sloth and poverty. IIow
are these abuses to be remedied?
The corrective must be habitual,
not occasional only. Every man
lives for others as well as himself.
And while the tenor of his life
should be that of cheerful industry
in his calling, he should keep open
every avenue to compassion and
liberality and munificence. The
business of such a mail- is habitual,
and includes no unreasonable cares
his benevolence is uniform, and
finds opportunities enough for exer
cise. ne lives repucaoiy, ana is
beloved by his contemporaries. In
this way he secures a fair share of
happiness. X. Y. Ledger.

you give me a drink, madam:'' beg
ged the tramp. "I can give you a

he said, after some consideration,
"water'ill do, if you can give me
and old beer bottle to drink from.
I'm a poor and lowly wreck,
madam," he concluded with pathos,
"but, thank heaven, I have still
left the remnants of what was at
one time considered the finest im

Courtship. A man, to be suc

old author observes, that lovers
are never tired of each other's
