was mistaken in both suppositions. The
watch had simply slipped from its nsnal

found it there.
This was the only esse that occurred

A communication to The Journal
from Beaufort, written March 3.1, says:
'Florence Chadwick, col., one of the
witnesses in the trial at Trenton, was tried
todny before Magistrate Carrnway for
perjury. Win. Fisher, who was convicted
at Trenton, being the plaintiff.
"Fisher succeeded In proving that Flor
ence 'Jhadwick, being a relative of his,
had authorized him to sign her name to
application for insurance and that she
wore in Trenton that she did not author
ize him to do so and did not know any
thing of leing insured. The court bound
the d-jfendant over and placed her under

CoL. Faiaoa's connection with the peni

management of it, getting it upon a better
basis which uirtnally made it pay its own
expenses and cease to be a burden to the
state is probably bis public service which

Regiment, aad. came out CoL of the Fifty
sixth Regiment.
He became a large farmer after the war

His death will cause deep regret to
many in the State.
Eiaibltors f B tbe Calinary Dept.
One of tbe finest displays ever made by
one exhibitor in the CuliDary Department
of the Fair was that made this year by
Mrs. U. S. Mace.
She had an elegant line of preserves,
and sweet and and sour pickles. Also
a very handsome assort nat nt of ornament
ed cakes. The most conspicious cake in the
room was hers; i: was that beuuti'ul hand
decorated one at the centre of tbe display,
which formed a steeple. It was iced in
rock cuDdy, and lettered with the same
material: "E'ist Carolina Fish, Oyster
and Game Fair, 1888-1896."
One of the most ingeniously de : rated
cakes especially considering the nge ct'
the maker was ooe by little Sarah Mead,
ows, aged ten years, the daughter of Mr
and Vrs. J. A. Meadows. It was iced
and the icing covered with very clever
imitations of diminntive turtles. They
were made of raisins, pressed into shape,
wi'h spice stuck in to represent the heads,
tails and leet.
Mr. O. Marks showed a most excellent
display of fancy dishes of all kinds, and
also canned vegetables.
Mrs. E. E. Harpei had a lovely display
of a anety of lellies and preserves, as
did also Mrs. Ralph Gray.

The schooner Eunity R. Dyer was a
boat well known in this city having
made frequent tripj here and taken out
many carpoes of New Berne lumber. We
have previously mentioned her to'al loss,
and the rescue of Captain Ireland of Beau
fort, and the remainder of her crew. They
having arrived in Baltimore advices from
that city dated March 8d., give the fol-
lowing particulars ot the wreck and
"The British steamer Stag, Capt.
Bruce, from Rio Mariana, arrived at her
dock today, having onboard CapL Ire
land and a crew of five ea, rescued from
the schooner Eunity RJ9;r, which went
dowu an boar after tbe rescue last Sun
day night. The Dyer sailed from this
port February 16th, with lime for Ply

gales almost from the instant she passed
the capes.
She at first anchored off Halteras, but
the flerceoess of the storm drove her far
out to sea. rier centerboard was lost, her
davits smashed, a deckl&4, l lumber
washed away, and all the fresh water gave
out. Then the vessel sprung a leak, and
day and nijjht the men were at the pump?.
Added to this the water got into the cargo,
which caught fire. Though seventy-one
years old, Capt David Ireland took turns
with his crew at the pumps.
Signals of distress were hoisted, but for
more than a week not a vessel hove iu
sight. When hope was well nigh gone,
the Stag hove in sight. The captain and
crew were taken on board and put to bed.
They were not only exuausted, but were
cut and bleeding and were in a sorry
plight when brought to Baltimore this
A Varied, Intensely Interesting" and
Hig-bly Instructive Collection Oath
ered From all Paris of tbe World.
We have made only, general reference
no efpecial mention, so far, of the Curio
Department of the Fuir, but the collection
this year, owing to the untiring efforts of
the Chairman, Mrs. Eva Hargett, was ol
such varied character and interesting na
ture, it l)ehoove8 us to say a few words of
It was a collection containing uot only
exhibits interesting to lovers of tbe queer,
uncommon and antique, but to everybody;
and many of the exhibits were instructive
in their character and well calculated to
awaken desire for farther geographical
and historical research.
Great praise is due Mrs. Hargett, not
only for her zeal in getting upltiuh a re
markably fine collection, but also for the
tiralea patiepce with which she met every
visitor and pointed out over and over
again the interesting features of the
numerous articles io the collection.
We saw in the department many arti
clos from far off countries, and will note a
few: A piece of rock from the top of Mt.
Sinai; shells from the sea of Gallilee; a
piece of oak from the petrified forest near
Cairo, Egypt; a wooden spoon carved by
a monk from drift-wood found on tbe
shores of the Dead Sea; a silver cup from
a church in Jerusalem), white pine cawing
from Nova Scotia; delicate ivory carving
from Switzerland fastened in a nut-shell,
(and by the way that attracted the imme
diate attention of the Swiss minister as he
passed through the room.)
We saw also many pieces ot rare pot
tery from France, the Strait of Darda
nelles, Mexico and other places; among
the china was a plate that once belonged
to the ill-fated Emperor Maximilian,
bearing bis crest and monogram. It be
longs to Mrs. J. A. Bryan and was ob
tained by ber oo her wedding tour.
Two large brass Samovars were cn the
show case, one brought ovei from St.
Petersbnry, Russia, in 1830, the other
brought over quite recently.
On the show case we noticed a hand
some, brocade satin dress that formed
part of tlie wedding trusseau of Mrs.
Richard Stockton, the great-grand
mother of tbe present Mrs. James A.
Bryan, more than one hundred and fifty
years. Mrs. Stockton's husband was one
of tha signers of the Declaration of Inde
pendence. An embroidered muslin, very quaint
looking, with its narrow skirt and short
waist was shown also. This was once
worn by Miss Pollock, daughter of that
well known pioneer settler of New Berne,
Thos. Pollock, whose memory is perpetu
ated in the name of one of the city's prin
cipal streets and also iu the name of the
thriving village Pollocksville, a few miles
horn New Btrne.
The colonial silverware was very hand
some. There was a cream pitcher be
longing to Mrs. Steele, aod ladle, sugar
tongs and other articles beloaging to Gen.
Frederic Hargett. We saw also a tea
chest, taken from the New Beme privateer
Snap Dragon io tbe war of 1812; docu
ments relating to the ancient society of
Cincinnati and phot-'graphs .of the origi
nal signers of the same.
The collection sent down from the Uni
versity museum, by request of lhe Chair
man, proved to be of great interest. There
were letters from LaFayette, Baron
Steubens, Gen. Green, Jethro Summers
and others, and deeds written on sheep
skin, in the time of King George, with tbe
royal seal attached, and an old flint and
steel pistol, with bayonetwttached, once
the property of the band of pirates com
manded by the notorius Teacti, etc.
A box of feathej" flowers made in
Bruzil from the feathers ot the poll-parrot,
representing coffee blossoms and berries,
was very beautiful.
A floe sword in perfect order, was on
exhibition, which gloriously commemo
rates the valor of a relative of Mrs. H. J.
Lovick, of New Cerne. It was presented
to her uncle for bravery and valuable ser
vices in the M iican war. The scabbard
and blade each contain inscriptions which
read as follows:
"Presented to Lt. John D. Clark, by
tbe citijeos of Beaufort county, X. C, as
a testimonial of their appreciation of his
gal'antry -in the war with Mexico and
particularly for his bravery as one of the
assaulting column at the attack on El
Mqlina del Roy.''. "There can be no
higher exhibition of bravery, consancy
and devotion to duty and courage.''
A curious old book in a good stste of
preservation was shown. It contained
among other things the acount of Geon e
Washington with the United States from
1775 to 1783. This book was picked up
in the streets of Fredericsburg, Va., by
Sergt D. G. Taylor of North Carolina,
after the battle of Fredericsbors?.
A section ot a whale's back-bone was
shown, also a tusk two feet lefhg taken in
a net at Ocracoke what it belonged to
was not known; one side of an oyster
shell which weighed eighteen pounds
this came out of a marl bed near New
Berne; huge teeth ot a megatherium, a
mammoth extinct swamp animal. These
were excavated while diggiog a ditch in
Jones county.
Tbe whole room was replete with in
terest. We have only mentioned a part
To enjoy it as a whole one had only to
stand in the room and lend an attentive
ear to the very clear explanations given
by Mrs. Hargett.

ae Road Repaired.
We are informed that the overseer foj
that portion of Xeuse road just beyond
the pity lias been found and the had
plapes which have been such an annoyance
have been worked. This was not done
however until at least three accidents oo,
curred on the road after our first calling
attention to tbe need for the work.
One ol these accidents was the over
turning of a transfer loaded with trunks;
in the other two cases farmers bad their
supplies thrown from their vehicles.
All roads should be kept in good order
at all times. Such holes as had formed on
this ro id dioukl never be allowed on un
frequented local highways, much less on
the main public thoroughfare leading into
a city.
Steam Mail Facilities for Beaufort.
The mail between Beaufort and More

siderably more mtisfaction.
He was led to this purchase by inter
viewing Mr. W. M. Beaningcrof Walnut
port Pa.; one of the large exhibitors at
tbe Fair, and one too who is not ooly a
large stock raiser and dairyman, but a
dairy lecturer also. Hs gave Mr.
Humphrey good information about the
maohines and about using them.
This is one way tbat these annual ex
hibitions are ot great use.
Not only do observant men and wc men
learn from viewing the exhibits, but by
tbe gat heri ig Of experienced people and
exchange of views many ideas can be
gained which probably could not be
learned as easily and at as little :ost in
any other way. This is only one case in
many where such results have fol
lowed. The rapid improvement in live stock,
the large development of the fancy poul

displays in tbe art and fancy work de

of the East Carolina Fairjjs an educational
feature and an incentive to higher aims

bold the Fair to the utmost and all other
citizens ot tbe State are cordially invited
to unite in makiDg the Fair as truly rep

the interior.

A corner cupboard quaint and old, and

Queer relics of the olden times, frail glass
and bits of delf.
A baby's toys, a silken purse, a fan all

And shut within a dainty box, two faded
yellow curls.
A girlish, dimpled, laughing face, ah! me,
this laded hair
And pictured semblance, now, are all
that's left of one so fair.

Bight well, I ween, she liked to go to party
and to rout.
And yet she was a famous cook, 'tis said
beyond a doubt
Here is her olden cook'ry book, I look,
and still can see
All faintly traced in faded inks, each old
time recipe,

that hist'ry knows full well;
O, could tbey speak, what wondrous
tales thase recipes might tell!

Lady Martha Washington, her
Waffle Recipe."
"Beat now," is written upon this page,
"six eggs till tbey are light,
Then, into these you lightly sifl one
pound of flour, white.
"Next, milk your cow; just three half
pints take from the genu's beast.
Put in a teaspoonful of salt, three table
spoons of yeast
"Now call the maids, and bid tbera beat
tha whole with all their might.
Then put it by the kitchen fire and let it
rise o'er night
"When morning comes, this mixture stir,"
says Lady Washington,
"And then in well-greased irons, bake
until the whole is done.''

Some say this world is an old, old world,
But it's always been new to me;
With its boundless range of ceaseless

The old days die, but tbe light at tbe

Some saj this world is a cold, cold
But it's alwsfys been bright to me;
With its hearthstone fires and warm de

And if I must labor, I wait, '
And trust to the fields I have sown;
For I know there is truth in tbe promise
. I will some time come tomy own.
Some say this world isa sad, sad, world
Bnt it's always been glad to me;
For the brook never laughs like my son)
when it quaffs
And feasts on the things to be.
Tbe night comes on with its Mat;
The morning comes on with its sang
Tbe hours of griet are few and brief,
But joy is a whole lite loag.
Some sav this world is a bad, bad world'
But, it a always been good to me;
Wit its errors there live dear hearts that
And hops for tbe things to be.
This world is not old or cold,
This world is not sad or bad;
