J. R. Hollaixt, the defaulting cashier

Uoiiexl States Marshal All boa swore out a

ra aired in alt directions. Also, the
back offered a leward ot 11,000 for Iain.
There are rw farther new developments
as to t be shortage, "which iayetaoderatood
to be about $80,00. The bank is le-
f Cared absolutely sale. It can aland iis
losses and still have a good part of its

; The opinion of some there is that be has

has committed suicide.

J. D. Church was a loser to the extent of
13,000, but this proves' by accident not
to be true. Mr. Chnrch had paid into
the bank $3,000 which Mr. Holland had
tailed to credit, but it was known 1a the

To right, to kfr, "Ho En,lerl!"
They rang "The Brides of Eiu'trby!"
With that he cried and leat his breast,
For lo! along the rivet's bed
A mighty eygie reared his ctesl,
And uppe tlie Lindis raging sped;
It swept with thunderous noises loud.
Shaped like a cm ling snow-white cloud,
Or like a demon in a shroud.
And rearing Lindis backward pressed.

Cl.attookaw. which is tlio north-west
branch ol'Xeusc river.''
This John Laws'-n was Surveyor-Gen
eral of the Province by appointment of
me jyiriis rropnclors ot Carolina, and Ins
hook is a discription of the topography,
the natuful history, and some of theludian
tribes, of the Province, rather than a his
tory, properly so-called. "It ' dedicated
to "dis Excellency William Lord Craven,
I Valine," (from whom the county of
Craven, of which Xcw Bern is tlie county-tow
n, takes its name), "and I he rest ol
the true and abso'ute Lords Proprietors
of the Province of Carolina in America,"
and one of ii s editions was printed iu
London in 1714, for "W. Taylor at the

tured to death by the Indians, near the

But much more direct evidence, and

taintd in Ihe narra'ive of Christopher
13aio:i DeGratfenried, a native of Bern,
Switzerland, written in the yar 1713, and

junction ol ihe Neust and Tient river3 in
North Carolina, where a town was found
ed culled, iu honor of his native city, Xew

an account of the oiganization, settlement

by the Tu-scaroias, an Iroquois nation, tne
h ost powerful of the tribes of East
Carolina, from w hom was pcicliased the
land tor ins colonists.
On page 910 ol the narrative he roeu
lions that bis people "were located by the
Surveyor-General on a tongue ot land b
tweeu the News (sic) and Trent rivers
called 'Chattawka,' where aiterwurds was
founded the small city ol New Bern."
Again, on page 922, describing his cap
ture bv the Indians, be savs: "As I came
from surveying some lands,
following a patli, I suddenly met a party
of Indians, which had moved from 'Chat
tawka,' the place where New Bern actual
ly stands.' He was theu make prisoner,
together with Jojjn Larson, above men

On p.ngo 933, DeClraftcnried, varying
the spelling somewhat, a'lildi S to "Cliat-to-cka,
the old name ot'tNe town of New
Bern," and on page 978 he says: "I paid
for the lands calle l by the Indians Chal
taqua"' (that, orthography being adopted
in this instance by his translator, as he
himself exp'essly state-) "to the
Indian King calle 1 Taylor. That Indian
King livoii with his people at the very
p are where my house and the started
town New Uein. now stand.''
In 1711 a massacre of the wli te settlers
in East Carolina by the Indians was fol
lowed by a long and bloody war between
the rices, which finally risubed in the
complete overthrow of tlie Tuscaroras,
and their binding themselves by treaty to
leave i he Province. In pursuance of this
treaty they emigrated to the North, and
joined their kindred, the "Five Nations''
of Western Xe.v York, thenceforward
kuowii as the "Six Nations.'' Settling in
the vicinity of, probably upon its banks,
Lake Cnautauqua, they gave it its
name, it is said, aud from it the county iu
Western New iork snd the many literary
associations doubtless derive thtir
The difference of spelling miy be ac
couutid for perhaps, as follows: There

was a German-Swiss, and his spelling of
the name of the place, "Chatiawka,"

may well have d ffer d from an English
man's orthography for the same word or
souikI. Be this as it may, it is quite evi

the 18th ceutury, an 1 no dou'it long be

The Female Benevolent Society of the

through its commute s, to each ol which
is assigned a certain, limited and accurate

the poor throughout the city, and thoogh
ihe income of the society is by no means

needy but rightly disposed persons, who
according to their limited ability honestly
strive to provide for themselves, and those
who are desirous of helping themselves
are the only ones deserving of help from
others. If special cases at any tune arise
the knowledge of their existence is suffi
cient in oar warm-hearted community to
cause special provision to be made when
the facts are properly presented. So il
any one is foimd liesrging with frequency
and regularity the light should be turned
on in some way.
Promiscuous charity, without a due un

see it enouraged to the fullest, but our
special aim iu this article is to start
thought about the proper direction of
benevolent effort, so that all its result s
may be beneficial and the greatest good
possible be accomplished from the work

turn a willing ear and a helping hand to
an appeal made in this way, a deserving
person in reat waDt may be passed by,
but there are other ways proper ways in
which such can make their necessities

who habitually begs, loses all leelings of

is brought up to such a, life, dot on'.y a
worthless but a worse tlian wprtbhW

What but absolute ruin can be expected
either of a boy or gin who is subjected to
such influences ? Prevention in such a
case is worth reformation a thousand
Some cities have reformatories; we be
Beve in them thorouzbly. We believe
the Slate itself should have one and have
jealously advocated, as opportunity
offered, ihe es ablisnment of one, and in
tend to continue, to do so, but how much
harder is the work when a criminal ca
reer is once started, no matter ho.v young
the culprit may be than it is to take the
Child in time and block off, if possible,
the entering upon such a career.
When a child becomes a street beggar
it needs right then to be rescued in some
way fiom such a life whether it likes it or
not or whether its parents like it or not.
To save such is a step forward in duty
which benevolent organizations owe to
the community; it is a step which Chris
tianity itself demands. We believe the
present laws would permit the taking of a
child from such a life, if not, they should
do so, and moreover tbey should not only
permit it but require it

proprietor of Riverside Poultry and Pet
Stock Farm was one fur white mice that j
order was from Lincoln, Nebraska and
there was another for a setting of eggs
The latter was from Lancaster, California.
It is getting so that North Carolina is
becoming known as one of the best
fancy poultry and pet stock places in the
Union and New Berne as one of the best
in the State. It is a reputation which is
deserved. Our breeders understand their
bu-iness and the birds and animals being
here in perfection , the annual exhibits at

judicious use of printers ink which Mr.

fact into prominence.
As fine an advance as the business has
made here in late j'ears, we consider it. as
yet, but in its inlancy. There is no part
of the county tha can surpass ours for
such a business, and people both at home

Be says he is one hundred and twenty

out to look for employment. He pays he
heard George Washington make a speach
in Norfolk, Va. That he shipped as a
seaman on the old frigate Constitution
and after serving a yir went to the
Brandwine under Farragut from which
he was discharged at the Brooklyn navy
yard about eighty-three years ago.
He says when he first left Mr. Fields'
plantation he hired out to a widow Pene

he stayeil five years, then he worked for
her daughter-iu-law, a widow, Sarah
