Mr. Wooten has long , had the reputation of being the best jury lawyer appearing at the Lenoir bar; while Mr. Gray is gradually winning a ; similar name.

At the meeting of the board of county commissioners on Tuesday, the chair man submitted an account of $5,596.66 for constructing the new jail. Commis sioners Biddle, Mallison and Latham were appointed a committee to audit said account which they did in the presence of the Board. . The County Line. W. A. Jones, county surveyor of Jones county, was in the city yesterday and says he has completed the running of the county lines between Craven, Jones and Lenoir. By his survey Cra ven looses one tax payer transfered to Jones Jones looses three or four tenant houses on the Heath plantation which go to Lenoir. New Court House. The county commissioners had before them a beautiful drawing of a new court house; but the plan has not been adopted yet. The board adjourned to meet on Saturday next to consider a proposition from the Trustees of the New Berne Academy for the sale of tho lot now occupied by die police station. Said lot if purchased by the board will be the site for the new court house. War Beminiceenaes. "We give in another column a list of the officers and privates of Co.

It will give us much pleasure to publish in the Journal a similar list of all companies from this section of the State. ' Jute. Mr. Elphinston returned yesterday from Bay River in company with Dr. Abbott of Vandemere. Arrangements have about been completed to get the 800 acres planted in jute and Mr. Elplin 8 ton hurries home to send on the seed. He furnishes the seed, waits till the fall for his money and is willing to con tract to pay $3.00 per ton for all jute raised. Dr. Abbott says he cultivated three acres of it last year and made on best land about SO tons to the acre; and on some extremely poor land, 'with a little fertilization, 15 tons. Jute Industry. We met on Saturday Mr. F. M. Elphin ston, of Newark, N. J., on his way to Pamlico county, to make an effort to get the farmers to plant J CTE. Mr. Elphinston will erect a Jute Fac tory on Bay River by the fall provided he can get three hundred acres planted. Good land will produce from 20 to 30 tons per acre, worth $3 per ton in its green state. This will pay handsomely, for the crop costs no more to make than a corn crop, and is easy to house. Mr.'-W. H. Oliver deserves much credit in getting up this enterprise. He has been hammering at it for years, and if it does come will prove of great ben efit to this section. Everything M booming for a prosper ous future for this city. In the Enemy Camp. A Journal reporter, coming from Kinston yesterday, noticed a wagon, buggy, mules and other implements for the surveying party of the Midland Rail way on the proposed Snow Hill and Greenville Railroad. On arriving at New Berne ye reporter, meeting Col. Yates and Major Andrews in the Central Hotel omnibus, inquired courteously about the survey. Col. Yates: "Don't know anything about it. Write to Mr. McLane at Golds boro and maybe he will tell you some thing about it. Ill tell you one thing, icell survey no route f rom Kinston. We have no information to give you. We pay our own money and keep our own secrets. Isn't that right, Mr. Andrews-"' Captain Andrews: "Yes, especially when you are in the enemy's camp." Journal Reporter: "I don't see why you regard us as enemies." Captain Andrews: "I don't see how we can regard you as anything else." Col. Yates: Don't you think it would be a good idea to drive all the capital out of the country? Capt. Andrews: "Especially Yankee capital." Note. The Journal is a ieii?paper, with opinions of its own on all live is sues. It is inimical to no one and to no woriny enterprise; neitner is it tne or ! gan of any person, clique or corpora- tion. The lease bv Mr. Best of the A. i ' & N. C. Railroad had in it a firm sup- rorier. as its nies wm snow, rmt yet it does not hesitate to characterize some of Mr. Best's plans as visionary, aa lack ing in good judgment and as destined to failure. We would like it to be al ways uudeistDod that the Journal has no friend that it will support contrary to what it deems right; nor does it ever expect to have an enemy whom it will attack for interested or personal motives. The Greenback Speaking. Hon. Jesse Harper, chairman of the National Greenback party, accompanied by CoL John R. Winston of our State Executive Committee, reached this city on Saturday, and delivered addresses in the Theatre at 11 in the day, and again in the Court House at night. In an interview with Col. Winston we learn that it is the intention of the Greenbackers to run a Congressman-at-large, and indeed a full ticket, in the State in the coming campaign. On be ing asked if this would not probably hurt tbe Democrats worse than the Re publicans, he replied in the negative, and stated that, in his canvass for Con gress two years ago in Scales' district, he drew more from the Republican ranks than from their opponents but that the Greenbackers had nothing to do with who should be hurt; they were building on the reason and good judg ment of the people. On assembling at the Theatre Col. Winston introduced in a short, ringing five minutes speech, the HON. JESSE HARPER, or Illinois. The speaker has not a very prepossessing appearance, but he im proves while on his feet, and his speech commands close attention, both as to matter and manner. With a good com mand of language, and with a happy faculty of grouping facts for a definite end in view, he almost forces conviction even where one disagrees with his the ories. We have not room to report his speech, but it was well worth listening to. The speech in the morning was calcu lated to raise alarm concerning the present system, and was directed to wards pulling down rather than in building up. At night the true theory of Greenbackism was explained and il lustrated. The Greenback theory has many at tractions that would draw to it follow ers and advocates only for the strong party ties already held by the people. If a disruption of old parties should ever come, it is still problematical whether or not the Greenbackers can build up aa well as tear down. New Berne'i Industries. Occasionally we drop in to one of the many places of industries in this city and right here we wish to say that we are surprised at the amount of manu facturing done here. We have already visited the Rice Mill of Mr. Elijah Ellis, which has a capacity of cleaning about four hundred bushels per day, and has already made a good market for rough rice, and the extensive Wood Plate Fac tory of Captain S. H. Gray, which will soon be turning out one hundred thousand plates per day, and employing over one hundred hands. Yesterday we visited Major Dennison's COTTON SEED OIL MILL, and were shown through by" the Major himself. He perhaps gins more seed cotton than any other ginner in the State. His machinery is driven by a 75 horse power engine, using - a 120 boiler. The seed first pass through a screen on the lower floor, which takes out the sand, sticks, rocks or any other trash, and are then carried by an eleva tor to the huller on the upper floor. After the hulling they go through a screen which separates the hull from the meat, the hull being blown out to one side, which are sold for $5 per ton, while the meat drops into a barrel be low. The meat or germ is then taken to the press room and passed between two rollers, which mashes tnem per fectly fine. They are then thrown into the heater and kept twenty minutes and then go to the press a certain quantity being put into each sack by simply turn ing a lever, and the sack placed into the press. There are three presses in oper ration now, and have the capacity of using about two tons of seed an hour. The oil goes from the presses into two large tanks, where it remains to settle, a pipe, through which the exhausted steam passes keeping it hot. After it set tles it is drawn off into barrels and shipped in its crude state. "How many hands have you at work now, Major?" "I have about ten at this business at present." "Does it pay?" "I hope to make it pay. Have not been running long enough to say took a large amount of money to put in the machinery. If I had ten of those presses and material to work on I could make money. I have put these in to use in connection with my gin, so as to enable me to pay higher prices for seed cotton. " "What is.this?" turning to a pile, of honeycomb looking stuff to one side. "That is the oil cake, which is ground up and fed to stock." "Well, the raw cotton seed are good for feeding stock, and they are a splen did fertilizer; are they damaged in these particulars by this process; if so, to what extent?" "The mannrial value is not decreased at all, for the oil is not a manure, and the cake is a better food for stock than raw seed ; so it will pay a farmer to let me take the oil out of his seed, no mat ter whether he wants to use them as feed or manure. " "What is the yield per ton?" 1 'About twenty-five or thirty gallons. ' 1 "What is the oil used for?" "I learn that it is now used as an arti cle of food; after going through a pro cess of refining it is used for lard, and I understand it is hard to detect it from real hog's lard." "What is the oil worth per gallon?" "In its crude state about thirty or forty cents." We left the oil mill, thoroughly con vinced that here is another institution that will, as it is extended, be a source of profit to the whole community; and, furthermore, we were impressed with the fact that it is an investment of Yan kee capital that no one wishes to drive away. The Major is an enterprising man. He has bought the old depot building, torn it down, and will use the lumber in making room for cotton next fall. Walker & Mill's Tobacco Factory. These gentlemen began this business in 1874. They now use a hydraulic Press 500 tons pressure which runs four plug presses ; and they liarc four box screws worked by lever power. They manufacture from ten to fifteen grades and can put up from five to six hundred pounds per day, employing from thirty to thirty-five hands. 'Where do you get your tobacco?" Durham the Ral- eigh & tiaston Road. Tobacco is quite! high; here" is a quality we generally pay j aboutwu cents for, but now we have to pay 20; this, owing to the drought and frost of last season.'' "How about tobacco raised in this section." "We can make the weed down here but can't make the quality. To make fine tobacco requires light soil highly manured."

The farmers are having a pretty rough j time for their work, the reason being an I overplus of wet weather. The lower j part of our county was almost deluged j last Thursday evening with rain and hail. One of the sufferers told me he i had never in his life witnessed such : large hail stones and the quantity was'j equal to the size, and on Saturday we j had another heavy waterfall. All com-; bined makes farming rather wet. It seems to be gaining ground that the , Second District in justice is entitled to ; the Congressman at large, and so it seems i to be the sentiment of all. I have heard the expression of opinion, and if that j should be conceded all that I have spoken j with in our section are decidedly in i favor of Major John Hughes of your j city. If there is a man more suitable j in the District or in the State the Demo- i crats of Pamlico would like to be posted ' as to who is the man. But unless we can have a change in j our mail facilities it would be a hard matter for any man in this section to j ever hope to be posted on the subject, notwithstanding we have a daily mail (that is wrong a daily mail carrier in stead of mail) . On the 8th day of March last the mail bag was sent from New Berne'as good as empty (so it 'has been a time or two since) but upon complaint, Mr. Hubbs, the Postmaster in New Berne, endeavored to put the blame upon the Postmaster at Grantsboro, and Saturday last the mail arrived at our place void of even a newspaper, and on inquiry Mr. Brinson, the mail carrier, states that the Jones county mail was sent to us and stopped at Grantsboro, and he further states -fhat he could form no idea of what had become of our mail, whether it had been sent to Hades or some other seaport. Now what I want to know ia whether Mr. Hubbs should be kept in the office at New Berne under such miserable management, when I am aware of the fact that you have Republicans in your place that would discharge their duty promptly as has been heretofore; I will state one, Mr. E. R. Dudley; though he is a little colored, I am sure if he had charge of the office in your place we would have no more such troubles. All we want is our mail, not an empty bag nor Jones county mail. L. Swansboro Items. A heavy fall of rain and considerable hail, accompanied by a severe wind almost a tornado visited this section last week, which did some damage to the crops. Luckily the hardest winds did not strike the crops and fences of the farmers or they would have been blown to atoms, as the severe winds twisted the trees to pieces and filled the air with limbs, leaves, and pieces of wood for miles around. Mr. Nathan Gornto and Mr. A. Farrell think they will have to plant some of their cotton crop over again, but the weather is fine now, and everything looks well considering the snap, etc. All are done planting, and their crops look well. Mr. Farrell is chopping cot ton the first one, I believe. By the way, he has some fine stock in the shape of hogs, cattle and sheep. He lately sheared five head of sheep, and realized j 45 pounds of fine wool. Four of the five were ewes; one was a ram, from which he got 13 pounds of good fine wool. They were what Mr. Farrell called the Cots wold half breed stock. I think this will do very well for wool I gathering in this or any other State. The sheep are two years old. I also saw a very fine Devon short-horn bull, be longing to Dr. E. W. Ward, which is certainly a fine specimen of the bovine tribe. Dr. Ward is a lively, wide-awake farmer; he has also some fine breeds of hogs; so has E. W. Fonvilie, A. J. Hurst, jr., L. O. Fonvilie. and others in this part of the county. Marion, the merchant, is also in the farming busi ness. He has a gin, fishery, oyster gar den, and store all combined in a small compass; that is, being near the river with his store he can attend to all of them in a very short time with very lit tle help. He has a vessel of his own running regularly to Wilmington and Baltimore, where he buys his goods, and he is doing a good business. We have good preaching in the neigh borhood every two weeks. Rev. Mr. Leary, Baptist minister (Missionary), and Rev. Mr. Warlick, Methodist min ister, Circuit preacher, are good speak ers; and have large audiences at their appointments. Hope to be able to send a large list of new accessions to the churches soon. G. Jones County Items. Commissioners Court to-day. Not i many people present.
