Yesterday a colored man drove in. an
ox from the country and offered him
for sale to the butchers at jjhe market.
Th3 bargain was closed at ?I8 with one
of the butchers, but before the money
was passed another butcher, Mr. Mc
Ginn, thinking that he recognized the
ox as one belonging to Mrs. Edward
Perry above Polloksville, began to ques
tion him, and the more he asked ques
tions the more anxious the negro was
to get his money until his anxiety exci
ted suspicion; finally he slipped off
without waiting to get his money, leav
ing the ox in the hands of the butcher.
It is no doubt a stolen ox.
Able Attorneys.
In the trial of Henry Bryan for the
murder of Mr. J. M. Agostine, the legal
ability shown by Messrs. Clem Manly
and W. W. Clark, as opposing counsel,
was of a very high order. While these
gentlemen were assisted by - the advice
of able associates, and while the speech
es made by all of the attorneys were
worthy of favorable comments, yet the
real battle in the case was fought be
Messrs. Manly and Clark in getting out
the evidence. We have heard Messrs.
Dortch and Grainger, Strong and Fair
cloth repeatedlv in big cases, and we
can very truthfully say these young
gentlemen handled their case with as
much ability as ever shown by any of
those distinguislied rotuoSfl.
A young man in the city bas a boil on
his cheek covered byi ft - black plaster.
He met a young lawyer fwhen the fol
lowing conversation took place:
Lawyer "What's the matter with'

Friend "Got a boil on it."
Lawyer "Thought you were going to
join the Republican .-party by turning
black." '
Friend "No, I thought I would be a
lawyer and would need more cheek."
Lawyer '"Yes, but lawyers require
brains as well as cheek.
Moral Let lawyers alone.

Steamer Accommodation. ,
Yesterday morning while in conver
sation with Capt. Southgate, of the
steamer New Berne, he spoke of . the
many accommodations afforded the
public by his boat nice passenger
rooms, polite servants, fine table, etc.;
"and in addition to all this," said he,
'the fish, are coming aboard of their
own accord, so we can have them right
out of the water into the frying-pan.
While coming in this morning a fine
mackerel so long (measuring about
forty inches with his hands) jumped
aboard, making a leap of about eight
feet through the port hole. "
While the Captain was relating this
story, which was a true one, a pair of
Spring chickens came along and wanted
to fly aboard, but it took forty cents to
raise their wings.
Pamlico matters.

1st, we read of the meeting of the Dem

time to hold the counfy convention to
send delegates to State ;and District con

county convention to nominate county
At the close of the article a motion
was passed to send proceedings to the
(ioldsboro Messenger for publication,
with lequest that Elizabeth City Econo
mist and New Beme Journal, copy.
We suggest that the extensive and in
creasing circulation of the Journal in
Pamlico would warrant the courtesy of
sending to us anything desired to be
published, direct and not by copying
from any other paper.

The Crop Outlook for Jones.
Quite a number of farmers from Jones
county were in the city Thursday, from
whom we gathered the' following crop
notes :
Cyrus Foscue: Crops are the smallest
I have seen for this time of the year in
a long time. Corn is very irregular; the
worms were very severe during the cool
weather. The outlook is very poor at
this time.
Jos. Simmons: It has been too dry
and cool for crops. I have a good stand
of cotton with the exception of' one or
two acres. I have some as fine rye as
I ever saw. The time for deer hunting
July will soon be here.
E. M. Foscue: I should hate to risk
running an account on the strength of
my crop. Has improved though in
Oats are looking
the last tew days,
very well.
J. K. Harrison: Our cotton died out
rapidly on the stiff clay lands during
the cold snaii.
J. B. Banks: I generally have my
crop of cotton put to a stand by the 10th
of June. Every farmer ought to have
his cotton to a stand by that time, but
I am afraid I shan't be able to have
mine to a stand this year by that time.
The cold weather made me feel mighty
sleepy, mighty sleepy! I will cultivate
two hundred and fifty acres myself in
cotton and there will be besides one
hundred and fifty cultivated by tenants.
R. N. White: The acreage of cotton
is about the same as last year. We had
a good come up but cool weather has
killed it out so much we have to keep
continually planting. Corn is looking
While in Washington we met Mr.
Walter Clark, of Pantego, a brother of
Mr. J. F. Clark of this city, and learned
something of the trade and business out
look of that county. Pantego is in Beau
fort county, on Pantego river, w3Jch
divides Beaufort from H3'de, and is
distant from Washington twenty-seven
miles. From this village is shipped
annually about 800 bales of cotton , 25.000
bushels of rice, millions of feet of lumber
and shingles, and a small but increasing
truck trade.
In speaking of the New Berne and
Pamlico steamer to be put on in the fall.
Mr. Clark says if the boat runs to Pan
tego it will capture a large part of this
produce, for, to use his language, "the
New Berne prices for produce are better
than at Washington. It is natural that
this should be the case, for New Berne
has so much better facilities for hand
ling and shipping to the interior, and
therefore her merchants can afford to
pay more. We see every week schoon
ers in New Berne from Elizebeth City
loaded with corn and that city has a
railroad outlet to a large and important
shipping port. Produce will naturally
seek the best market, but it is highly im
portant to obtain the quick transit for
freights which steam alone can offer.

meeting of Road CommlsKionerf)
On next Tuesday the; commissioners
appointed by the Legislature to con
structs road from near Barker's bridge
in Carteret uounty via. Catfish Lake to
the Newport road near W. Foy's Cra
ven county, will meet in this city
to organize and take steps
towards having the road made. The
following are the committee.
Messrs. H. R. Bryan and W. Foy, of
Craven county, Thos. S. Gillett, F. Foy
andG. W. Koonce, of Jones county,
and Dr. W. H.. Barker of Carteret.
This road was surveyed about two
years ago by W. A. Jones and others,
and it is found to shorten the distance
for the people of Carteret and White
Oak in Jones county, who bring their
products to" New Berne, from 12 to 15
miles. It is of much importance to
this city and the people of that section
which it reaches. It also penetrates the
public lands of the State, and if justice
was done' this section convicts would be
put upon the road and it would be con
structed in a little while. We intend
to keep hammering at the authorities
until the law is complied with in re
gard to the Quaker Bridge road; and
we insist that the next Legislature
shall assign convicts to this and other
roads through the pocosins.

New Berne must have a dog factory,

fishing crew. We only caught about
1300 fish and when all had finished
eating not many were left.
