fear of wheat and perhaps corn. F, rming oper

of hope for their future. How fir these hopeful

know. Destiny working out its ends.
SrRING TIF. I'oMNo.- sure Indicatior' of the
approach of spring, or rather that bad weather is
over, is the singing of mud larks. We heard one
tie other tuoming, and thought at first that old
Joe 11adden had again turned up, but listening
intently it.was unmistakably the hoarse chirrup
Cf a mud lark. We had the satisfaction of seeing
him too as he frisked a!out, attracted by the
whistlring of the Dr's mo.-king bird ; happy little
fellow. It is not a little sing ilar that although
the mud lark is the harbinger of pleasant weath
er, and is eagerly looked for, gldly welcomed,
yet o-ne of his little chirrupy songs is enough- for
a season, no one cares to hear it, repeated.
CmrA CmLco.-It can hrrd'y he otherwise
thna satisfaction in keeping store to know that
thme goods go off rapidly, and with so lit tle trouble,
as is the case with Lovelace & Wheeler. They
find difficulty in keeping up the stock, for besides
large daily sales, we notice whulesale nigh/ty
operations, by which whole bolts of prints are
taken. We believe it is not their design to do
business at nlght and that they bolt their doors
and lock up generally, but this does not prevent
the nighlt custom, for in spite of iron bolts and
bars, they noticed the other morning on opening
store that an individual had bolted with a bolt or
two of calico.
I Ar;na.-A few individund in tie neighbor
hood of this ofBece, were thrown into alarnming
excitemnent last Friday, in the fear that two eases
of cholera had been dIeeloped here. It was dis
covered in time, however, to prevent the alarm
spreading to the country, that thme cases noticed
were affected, not with Asiatic chzolera; but with
the~ big-he'ad ad full-stomach, caused from an
attempL on the part of these'indiMuis totris
fer the contents of a whiskey barrel to their sto
mach. It would not do. The pressure from the
head, owing to the quantity of densed gas accu
mnlated 'above, cornming in cont'aet 'wi&hhe over
chalrged receptable, befobre mentioned, caused an
explosion, and a violent upheaving was the con
sequence; hence the alarm. We beg in future
that similarly afBlicted persoas will seek some
other place than under our windows to cast up
A RnRITA T.S.-Distinguishable an d worthy of
note have been tihe additions to our town socie
ty of late. We' note onIly a few of the prominent
characters. Generals, Colonels, Quartermasters,
&c., are among the things of tihe past, distingutish
edl arrivals at our hotel pass unnoticed; the thing
is played out. Our attention is now drawn to
erratic individuals who don't stop at hotels, gents
of passage, here to-day sonmenhere else to-mor
ro.mhrp, keen, knowinlg fellows some of
,them. Giftnen, with traveling jewelry caravan
series, who full of the milk of human kindness
and actuated 'wholly by a generous love, drop in
as it were from the clouds, open shop, display
their wares, and flood the town with their elegant'
articles. We are not surprised that 'their cus
tonm is large and that they are appreciated, such
trinkets and valuables bought in any other way
would cost so mtuch more. Some few of our ex
chatnges are diown on these gift men, and we
think it a shame ; they arec genierous, nice, good
fellhews, a:nd bring the latest fashions along with
them too. The man with the Iat for instance,
such a sight is rarely seen, it was the hat of all
hats. Its style wi:l be adopted here as soon as a
bill of them can be brought from the North. It
isaid by many-and those who did not draw
pmrizes-thait the lucky individuals were victim
ized, that the gold was brass, and the silver pew
ter, hut wie don't believe it, a miserable envy
suggests' the idea. We don't patroize thenm
o. ef, because we don't stand in need of any
jewelrgst no-.v, but we advise other folks if they
want to, and have more mon'y than will pay
their debts and support their families, to go into
all of these concerns, and get their monmey back.
If thie man with the hat, or any other man of the
same stripe, loses by.- the operation who is to
blame ? Not vou. We wonder sometimes where
all these kind individuals corne~ from, and if they
have any hidden design that we cannot fathom.
Mr. Smith now for instance, Mr. Jones, and Mr.
Brown sends us tickets whichf call for handsome
watches, chains, &c., somebody no doubt told
them we had noite of these articles, and having
sympathy for the poor newspaper editor, propose
to supply the deficiency. Who says it is niot
kind of them ? All they want is a dollar or two
to dcfray e.rpenses. We did not send for thesr
articles for the reasons that we don't like to he
under obligation to John Smith, or any other
man, as objects as chamity to wear cheap jewelry,
and that it might be taking advanitage of ~poorer
men than1 ouirselves; the very fact of their want
ing two dollars is a proof it.; and then we don t
i;t~ t.h~ ?imnUv of Snmimhs. .Tanes' and Brown's.
31ET-rN.-Just as we verc about closing our
form for "press," a.dikpatchi vrlas brought in, girv
ing t(It proceeding of no enthusiastic iiiniraLion
meeting, which was held under the dam of
0 Neil's Mil,on Saturday night.last, at 10 o'clock,
by h select fishes of Bush river. A consider
ale damper was thrown on the proceedings by
the heavy rain, but a comfortable harmony pre
v;ilt d. Thc dispatch was forwarded by way of
Scott's creck early Sunday morning, but owing
to many detentions on the way by the "small
fry", who each nibbled and finned it in an excusa
ble curiosity to discover the object of said meet
inL, it was caught out in the storm of Sunday
night, and is so muddy and illegible that we can
not copy it at in time for this paper. Next
week we hope to lay it before our readers in full.
At hasty glance it is discovered, that the object
of this meeting was to take ipo consideration
the unheard of and un.fair manner ii which a
party of "Sand-lappers" and "Tar-heels," so-called
in the pr-oceedings, endeavored to draw them
out on Saturday afternoon last, besides various
other measurcs w%hich admit of reform. The of
ficers appointed were Mr. 'Redhorse, Chairman,
Mr. White Perch, Secretary, and Mr. Blue Cat,
We invite attention to the card of Messrs.
Watts, Chapman & Co, Frog Level. They have
opened a rew carriage shop where vehicles of all
kinds are made and repaired in a neat, substan
