with the hopo of hoing ablo, not only to puvchaso

A CHBISTMAB FBOLIO.-On Christmas morning,
about 10 O'clock, thore occurred, just outsido of

I ortuuatcly a gentleman came to her assistance

ro pieces of plank being loft together.
BUBGLAE SHOT.-A negro man, while attempting
io burglariously outer the residence of ono of our

THE FRUITS OF FANATICISM."-\VO copy the en
? og paragraph from tho SouOwrn Recorder, Mil?
ur streets on Saturday last exhibited tho frocd

lute example to the rising generation. Tho sight

A SAD AFFAIR.-We loam that a c?fficulfcy oc?
curred at Parkville between two citizens of that
i place on Wednesday last, which resulted in tho
1 death of ono of the parties. Tho na.:.o of the par?
ties aro Wm. Bridges, and L. B. Wheeler, the for?
mer receiving a stab in tho breast from tho hands
of the latter^from which he died in a few moments.
Thoy were brothers-in-law, and both respectable
citizens. We know nothing of tho origin of tho
difficulty, but it is greafly to bo regretted that it
should have talton place. Wheeler made his es?
cape, and as yet has not boon arrested.-Sumter
ROBBEI?Y ON THE ?ECAT?lt ROAD.-Wo Stated, ill
Sunday morning's paper, that a ru?ar had roached
tho city that a man had been lulled betwoeu At
' lauta and Decatur on Saturday afternoon. We
I have since learned that H. G. H. Miller, who owns,
a tannery nfc Decatur, was assaulted by two men-"
a negro and a man wearing the United States uni
form^-nnd loft almost senseless in thc road, after
being robbed of his money. His condition, at last ?
accounts, was decmod precarious. Mr. Miller was
formerly a citizen of thia placo, and loft s?mo six j
or oight months ago to resido in Decatur.
LVHTTMAN Mo'niEB.--Officor Dukes, in bis' ram- |
bios about town on Thursday, liad his alton.ion
drawn to a large drain or culvert, on tho Central
Railroad, nearly opposite Poplar street, and on
exploring it found the body of a new-born infant.
It was a malo child, apparently about twenty hours
old. On examination its neck was found to havo
boen broken, and no doubt exist d that its brief |
existence had boon terminated by violence
On inquiry, officer Dukes had his suspicions
aroused in regard to a negro woman named Lou?
isa Jordan, aa being both ibo motlier and murder?
ess of the child, and he discovered that sho had
tied from ber late abode, in tho neighborhood of j
Ibo crime. On pursuing her. Dukes overtook lier
JU the Vinovillo Bond, and having beoomo con
minced of her guilt, from her conduct and other j
ittendant circumstances, he lodged her in the
3unrd Houso. !
Tho verdict of a Coroner's Jury, we learn, was
n accorlanco with tho abovo facts, and thc un
latural mother now lies in prison, under a charge
? that most brutal crime-mfanticide.
FIBK.-A firo broko out in a wooden houso on

lefore any serious damage was done. The house
lestroyed was occupied by Mr. George Roberts,
iressman at tho Cons itutionalist, and owned by
Ir. John Gould. The furniture of the former was ,

CuRRENcy CONTBACTION-Tho Now York Times,
n discussing tho currency question, exp'esses tho
sonviction that fixed and modorato contraction of
;he currency, bringing us noaror, every month, to
?he specie standard, would choapen tho cost of
iving, and so increase tho means and comfort of
he people with a certainly attainablo in no other
vay. AB to tho disturbances of trade, which so
nany fear, we aro told these will occur anyhow.
*NoChing can prevent thom, and (tho editor rca
10ns) wo shall bo better off when they aro ended
han now." "As for the manufacturers, the Times
hinks that their true relief hos in the direction of
t reform in the internal rovonuo system rather
lian in an increase in customs duties. Their worst
roubles spring from the dearness ol labor, which
B a result of tho inflated currency, and from the
ippressive taxation incident to the existing system
LUPOBTANT ABBESTS.-Wo loam from an ex

Tosorh Bax er, both of Currituck county, which

An eccentric old journeyman printer in the office
of the Troy Times, is attracting considorablo at?
tention, l?o is sevouty-two years old, and is called
"Fathor Bcchett." Tho Times says that '.himself,
u citizen of tho world, ho thinks strong attachment
to certain localities is a perversion of man's na?
ture. AB to geographical linoB ho would blot thom
out, as impertinent interference of tho map-maker
with the works ot Providouco. A philosopher, bo
looks calmly on the mutations of time. Through
fcbe hazo of his well lilied pipo, and over the foamy
beok of a "cup of sack," no thinks kindly of the !
fiast, thankfully of the present, serenely of tho
uture. And as to malters aud things in'goneral,
past, prosont and future, his stereotyped motto is,
'let 'om rip.' "
The advances of Egypt Bince tho beginning of j
this century* havo boen great and euro. For a long ]
course of years tho material development of tho
country has gono favorably on. Manufactures,
agriculture, commerce have alike been fostered
and stimulated. Railways havo at once employed
labor and assisted industry. Canals havo fertilized
a wide extent of territory, and remuneratively dis?
persed over tho wholo country and convoyed to
loreign dopots tho products of the various dis?
tricts. This year Egypt has produced a cotton
crop estimated at twenty millions sterling, and it
ls crodibly told that thc condition of the common
people has begun to bo sonsibly improved.
Tho death is announced of Mr. William Miller,
the chief cashier of tho Bank of England, in tho
fifty-seventh year of his ago, after having been in
tho service of tho bank upwards of thirty-seven
yeai'3. On the resignation of his father-in-law,
Mr. Mathew Marshall, two years and a half ago,
Mr. Miller, who was then first assistant, waB ap?
pointed to tho highly responsible office from which
he has so suddenly been taken away. Mr. Miller
was an ablo mathematician, and his IOBB will be
deeply regretted by tho advocates for tho intro?
duction of the decimal system into English ac?
counts. Mr. Geo. Forbes, who is now ill, is first
assistant cashier, and Mr. Frank May tho second.

KINGLY REUAINS.-A Paris correspondent says
"Wc arc now about to send to Westminster Abboy
I from Fontevrarlt all, literally, that remains of tho
Kings and Queens of England. Westminster Ab?
bey, howevor, is not likely to ho much enriched by
those mortal spoils, for the Phare de la Loi? sa3rs:
"There probably will be found at Fontovrault no j
actual remains of Henry IL, Richard I., or Queen I
Eleanor of Aquitaine;' for, liko those of St. Penis,
the tombs of Fontovrault bavo been violated. Tho ?
bones of Cour de Lion were rot moro respected |
than those of St. Louis, but tho tombs have boon
restored and tho figures aro almost uniijured.
I They aro recumbent figures, with bauds c osset! i

If the report be true lie will have been driven away j
by tho curiosity of his neighbors. He has bought j

but to no effect, lie is watched and dogged whore
