C.uTiKT Curucii. Through the kind
ness of Mr. M. Weddell, wo had the plea
sure yesterday of thoroughly examining
this magnificent House of God, now rapid
lv approaching completion, and feel that
wc can do hut feeble justice to its merits
and real beauty of style and conception.
As a specimen of architecture, it has few
rivals in the country, and its majestic gran
deur and solemn dignity of appearance
would bear no mean comparison with the
lauded edifices of populous cities. The
t,i-ti) displayed in the general arrangement
vt the interior is all that the most fastidi
ous fancy can desire. 'Without seeking
any elaborate or gaudy display, the strict
est attention has been paid to simplicity of
.tyle, the surest sign of good taste, while
jhe eye dwells with pleasure upon the Sys
tematic order and beauty pervading the
The articles of furniture for the Chan
ftl. .ju.-t finished by Mr. Chambcrlaine, an
KniJishnian, v. re really gems of art and ex
eeuMoii, and will greatly add to the gener
al appearance of the whole. They are
made f solid oak, and even now present
an appearance of antiquity and age, sel
dom attained but by the operations of time
It is estimated that the entire cost of the
lmilding will amount to $17,000, which, ta
king into consideration the general impov
erished condition of Jhe people, shows np
small degrep of pnergy ami zeal on the
pai t of those interested in the structure.
We understand that want of sufficient
funds will probably cause some delay in
preparing the windows, in the manner
wished for and intended, but the deficiency
will be remedied in a way that will answer
every purpose, until more prosperous times
will justify the expense necessary to place
. them jn pondition to correspond with the
Unless some unforsocn circumstances
transpire, the I'a.stor will hold the first ser
vices there after his return, on tlni second

Altogether, her congregation and Tar7
boro may well feel proud of Calvary
A Skkioi-s Complaint. Many of the
colored people would seem to have taken
up the idea that they are in no way respon
sible to Use civil law of the laud for any
violation of order, however outrageous
their conduct may have been, and acting
upon this supposition, have been guilty of
acts deserving the severest punishment.
The house of Cod and its services has
hitherto been held sacred, and any malici
ous or intuitional disturbance of the same
comes under the just condemnation of the
A short time since, while services were
being held in one of our country churches,
-the negroes, in large numbers, assembled
for political purposes in a house imme li-
ately adjacent to the church, and by their
v. induct very much disturbed the members
of the church, while engaged in taking the
Sacrament of the Lords Supper.
Upon being requested by some gcntlc-
sacrilegious conduct, they became very
iuueh incensed ami at one tunc affairs
threatened a serious termination. Since
then, we understand, the whole neighbor
hood has become very excited on the sub
ject, owi!!g to the continued threatening
'and iusoleut e.onduet of the negroes, an
the propriety of asking a military force for
their protection has been seriously discuss
ed by the citizens.
This action vc would deprecate, until
some more vii:-i necessity calls for it.
They can at it-.t make an appeal to the
civil cotii ts for tin appi ehensi. n and pun
ishment of the.s? nij'eiiders, and if they are
unable to administer Jaw and justice, then
let audi tribuYiul-i seek, from the military
tho assistance necessary to apprehend and
We regret that such a state of feeling
should have been engendered between the
two races; but it is the inevitable result
of Ilad'.eal teaching, which, sooner or li
ter, must culminate in open collision, in
which contest, the teachings of the past
predict the ultimate extinction and exter
mination of the inferior race.
Let them beware in season !
Rkpokt ok Committee, Appointed to
Ikyesticatk the Condition of the New
Jail. To Henry T. Clark, Chairman of
the County Court of Edgecombe,
In pursuance to an appointment made
by you as chairman of the Court, constitu
timr ;is a Commute to examine the condi
tion f ti.e public Jail of this county, we
the c.ihi-w-rsigned beg leave to submit' the
following jis our report.
Fir.vf ; as to the brick work, we, after a
careful examination, report that so far as
ti c material is concerned, we Had that
good, but find hat the execution of thq
wcrk deficient :i this, that the joints of
mortar between ityt bricks are considera
bly wider than thei should he and is much
damaged by tVost. '
Sicn-1, As to tl.s sriKid-work, wo find
that in this. Kroner material has been used,
but in our opinion tn
xscntion of the
work has not been done i-.j a work-man
like manner: the jrenetiii .character of
V..r work beinir rough and i'i;ooivpji'te. The
stair case we 'intl, not properly constructed,
and iu its present condition ought not to lie
accepted, because of the improper peca
tion of the. ork.
Wo find the material in the flooring
good kin the work done well.
Your -Committee would respectfully cal
the attention of the Court to tiie fact, that
thev find that there are thiee outside win
dows to the Jail, through which persons
ni the outside can couvev any toois to
iynulows of the cells within, thereby
Kg the Jail unsafe in this respect,
can be remedied by little ex-
ee arc. of the opinion that
Jail is strong and snl).
rxi-eptior.s named and bv
ffndtnents can be made perfectly
Your Committee furth.' r report that the
cause of the late escape of prisoners from
the Jail, in their opinion, was In conse
.icnce of the space between the iron bars
'to the cells inside being too wide. The
chocUii.oi" the bars should be close cnoujrh
to prevent jyrisonevs inside to project their
hands tltfoujjh and cutting off access to the
locks of the cells.
All of wfcieh is respectfully submitted,

tion of the directors to lay down a
wooden track, vising a locomotive and cars,
until sufficient funds can be raised to put
down an iron vrav. An iron track would
cost some $20,000, whereixs th&re is only
a sufliciency on hand for' one of wood.
One of the principal objects is to build
np Scotland Neck, by ma-king it a concen
trating point for business. The counties of
Halifax and Edgecombe adjoining it, are
among the wealthiest and most productive
In North Carolina, producing superior cot
ton, wheat and corn. Tho following are

the merits oi the
Godwin Cotton Press,
Hear what the following reliable gentle
men sav :
I have seen Mr. J. II. Godwin's Cotton
Press wpik af V r. P. E. gniitlrs plantation
and.it does ail that he saj it does in hi ad
verliseinent and more. 1 tliink it superior lo
any oilier tnp;4e ot packing cotton, and saves

I have used the above mentioned Press
and consider it the bcnl I aver saw for pack
ing Cotton. THOtj. J. VAUGIIAN.
I have packed about 1C0 bales of Cotton
with Mr J. II. Godwin s Cot on Press, and
take pleasure in recommending it to tne
farmers as a great labor saving machine. It
does not cost more than half as much as a
Screw, and is worth twice as much.
It is so convenient and takes fewer hand
to do as much work as a screw. I worrirf
pay the price of a Press, rather than allow
a man to put up a screw on niv place lor
nothing. D. EDMONH ON.
I have used the above mentioned Cotton
Press, and it dec belter than a Screw. Taiio
less hands, (Jots cot waste Cotton, and
much cheaper. ' - J. II; CUltR'V,
' 15up't W. IL. Smith's plantation
I have packed about 70 bales with God
win's Cotloii Press, and am certain it is the
best, cheanegt, mqst coinr.aet, and durable
press in existence, costing only half at lirst
and laslins twice as loiiir as a screw.
rUTEll' E,r SMITH
I have never seen ihd Cotton Pness of Mr.
Jno. H. Godwin at work, hut have no doul

that it performs all they say of it. I know
them to be gentlemen of character and vc

to credit. U1CI1U II. SMITH.
The last name is one of our most honora

a toriner member of the Legislature. I ot
