frV This number closes the third t
volume of the "Free Press" the first
of its publication in this place. We em
brace this opportunity to render to its
patrons our unfeigned thanks for the en
couragement which it has received, and
to assure them of our determination to
exert to the utmost the slender abilities
we possess, to render it worthy of their
support. The enquiry has frequently
been made, whether an enlargement of
our paper would not ensure it a greater
extent of patronage when we look at
the difficulties with which similar estab
lishments in this section of the Slate are
confessedly struggling, and their occa
sional transfers and suspensions, we can
not but hesitate to increase our expen
ses with the prospect merely of a proba
ble increase of income. We have to ex
ercise at present the most rigid economy
to avoid embarrassment we have but
little to lose, and feel no inclination to
jeopardize the property of others, well
'.mowing that a failure in such cases is
generally attributed to "extravagance,
iticip. icily, or indiscretion' In com
mon with the generality of mankind, we

ilie utmost limit, and would be much
gratified to sec the Free Press make its
appwiranf -e on a sheet of superior dimen

We would suggest to those unacquaint
ed with newspaper usages, that it is not
customary to renew subscriptions at the
expiration of the year it is presumed
that they will continue, unless a notifi
cation to the contrary is given, which

Postmaster at whose office they receive
their papers. 0 KO. HOWARD.
'JT is with much pleasure the Proprie
tors of the Brunswick Mineral Springs
inform the public, that they are now
ready for the reception of company.
Considerable additions have been made
lor the comfortable accommodation of
visitors. The Staire from Pctcrsbure:,

Mid airy rooms will be exclusively at
the disposal of our guests. Guns, Mu
sical Instt uments, Chess-men, a selection
of Books, Baths, (warm and cold) an
assortment of wines, &c. and every de
sirable ariicle for the table, are provid
ed. So that these Springs will be as de
sirable a retreat for the invalid, and for
those who desire to escape disease, and
to enjoy pleasure, as can he found in our
State. The Mineral qualities of the
waters have not been analysed; but their
beneficial effects on those who have used
them, in restoring lost health and in giv
ing heshness and bloom to the com
plexion, arc not doubted; and speak
more than any analysis could possibly
do, in their favor. Grateful for the en
couragement received the past season,
v-hen they labored under all the disad
vantages incident to new undertakings;
and convinced by experiment that they
can come up, to "what they promise, the
Proprietors will continue to exert them
selves to secure the confidence of their
friends, and to give satisfaction in every
department of their establishment.

N Thursday, the 17th inst. an affray
took place in Iredell county, be
tween Thomas Harvey and Isaac IV.

caused his death. Several persons were
present, but Harvey was suffered to es

6 feet high, slender made, black hair,
dark eyes, is given to intoxication, when
drinking is talkative and quarrelsome;
but when sober, his appearance is decent
and gentlemanly: can neither read nor
write; had on a blue cloth coat, much
worn and patched; white vest, panta
loons and hat; has a scar, made by a
knife, leading back from one eye to
wards his ear. The good people of this,

do well to apprehend the said Thomas
Harvey, that he may be bro't to justice.
