Long may he be spared to note the rosnerii or
the company to which he is so devotedljf attached :
" The Grays, Capt. Elliott in command, paraded
in full uniform on Friday night, and attracted
much attention. They numbered sixty -hve men.

body is still in session, but we presume will not

yesterday evenrhg,that the Statedocket, although
the largest.by considerable that he had everjiad
the honor of spreading Upon the record, was fully
disposed of, and that the Civil docket would be
taken up this aorning. There was but one case
that seemed to elicit much interest, and that was
an indictTiteti against' some six or seven gentle
men for teirhf nlegat forcible entry into ons of
Mr. A. MKhels nego houses, for tire puqiose of
making search for stolen goods, &c.t and for ccyn
mitting an assault upon the person, of one of his
negro men. This case occupied most of the fore
noon on yestery, and th investigation wa
very thorough, both on the part of the court, and
the Counsel, and we suppose, will be much more
so on the part of the Jury, inasmuch as they
had not decided it when we left the Court House,
late in the evening, for the purpose of reviewing
,our notes. We heard' his Honor tell the Sheriff,
on leaving the bench, that the Jury must be kept
confined until they decided the case, if it took
them all the week, and in case they should be
unable-4o come io a decision, during the week,
that the court wiiuld be left open until they did.

Who loves not Violets ? emblems of modesty,

fair haired child, with eyes beautifully blue, and on

looked, lith her crown of Vioets,and her golden

she was an angel. Too fairior Earth, God td&k

How to Ma kb Nkwspavkrs Gt; -jSafeb. We
find the following- remark in an ejpang-e. We
commend them to the attention of onistant Sud-
jserwera : we snonia liRe to nave all single
packets doubled, trebled, quadrupled, or more if
more might De. It is troiiblesomejto sencUOut
;these single pack'vges very troublesome, in wrb-
portion to the gM8. We can put up two or ttpree
papers for maiUJneavly as soon as we can one.
Besides, -e always realize a feeling of anxiety in
regard td these little packets, in sending one
paper avtejghy itself so far. We feel for them in
rtiek" loiierPand uncertain journey. As to the1
large' packages, their very bulk will command
some respect for them from post office clerks. But
these tfolitary little fellows, in their seeming in
significence, may, probably be kicked into some
corner, or miss their way, and Je lost among the
hills and hollows. It is a pity to have one , paper
take such long journeys as some of them do,
'solitary and ah me.' Give them company;-' and
they will travel more swriftly, and reach their
damnation more surely."
Tkmale Heroism. Our exchanges frequently
contain sketches of trying and courageous feats
perinTiecf by the gentler v sex, but for intrepid,
darinis and wonderful accomplishment, the foi-
I lowing- acMeVe'rhent recounted to us by a friend
of thisvic'inity; -mirpasses anything we have heard
of. The occurrence took mace in Caswell county,
N. C., at a short distancVom wlfigAcittzen.
of that county, nainjBvi-ler, was absent from
fibnie on one occasitSa, leaving only his wife, her
littechild and a negro woman, on the premises.
DirVing the day, the child fell into a well some
sixty feet deep. The negro woman took fright
and ran on, and the mother wras left alone to res
cue her cbj,as best she could. She seized hold
of the rope -attached to the water bucket, went to
the hottoin "of the well, took the child in her arms
and then ascended the rope, bringing the child
along with her an unparalleled feat. Manyan
erne of the sterner sex even, would despair of car
rying his own weight alone up a rope, sixty feet.
Ve can vouch for the accuracy of this statement,
however incredible it may appear.
