a year ago-a strange, red little ruffian
of twenty-four hours' existence, witb

FATAL STORM.-The storm of last

South Fork and Catawba, it was especi?
ally severe. Mrs. Adam Hoffman, re?
turning home, ran into a negro hat to
escape the storm ; the house was upset

the houses were blown down on the old
Tommy McLean place. All the fences

McLean's plantation were blown down.
Dr. John MoLean had a horse killed by
a falling tree; a negro riding the horse
was not injured. Yoong John MoLean
Was knocked off bis horse bat aot seri?

tawba between Neal's Mills and Bock

and unroofed his boase. The same
thing happened on the place of Mr.

AN ANECDOTE OF GEN. RODERT TOOMDS.
Toombs, of Georgia, is one of the most
gifted of all the erratic geuiuses that
America has yet produced. Like Tom
Marshall and Wm. Haskill, he is a natu?
ral-born orator. Mr. Clay heard him
make ono of his first political apoechoa
at a mass meeting in Georgia, in 1810,
and predicted for him then a brilliant
future. It is related of Toombs, that,
ou one occasion, iu tho trial of a very
important case before a Georgia jury,
he, by some strange absence of mind,
got up and made a powerful speech
against his client, who was the plaintiff
iu the case. After he had spoken nearly
an hour, aud was about to close, one of
his associate counsel whispered in his
ear thal he had made a mistake-that he
had spoken ou the wrong side. For a
momcut ouly, Toombs was perfectly
dumbfounded, aud recovering imme?
diately, he turned to tho court and jury,
und said: "Now, may it please the court,
and you, gentlemen of the jury, I have,
lin my remarks hitherto, attempted to
give you nil, aud tho vury best, too, that,
can be said ou that sido of the case, aud
though it may appear at first blush a
very strong case, yet I am confident, if
you will give mo your attention a little
while longer, I will bo ablo to convince
you that, after al), my clietit, the plain?
tiff, is entitled to a verdict at your
hands." Ho then proceeded to over?
turn every position previously taken by
him, exerting himself to tho uttermost
of bis wounded ability to repair his mis
tnke, and wouud up with an appeal to
tho court aud jury so thrilling, that he
carried them by storm und triumphantly
gained tho case for his client.

His wife, a bean tiffi and accomplished

Mr. Whipple's sickness, and was sent to
tba asylum at Kalamazoo, whore she re?
mains, with no hopo of recovery. Four
beautiful, bright, aud thus unhappy
children are penniless, and scattered
thus sud there, no two living together.

CENSUS.-Tho full returns whioh haye
been prepared ia advance at the census
0 Qioo in Washington, make a very grati?
fying exhibit ot oar manufacturing in?
dustries at the period-1870-of gather?
ing the material for the record. Tbe
total capital represented to be invested
at that time was $25,669.040. and the
produot for the year was 858,865,266, the
value of raw material consumed being
$35,804,609, the wages paid $10,289,627,
while the number of hands employed
was 32,931, of whom 23,871 were males
above sixteen years of age, 6,982 females
above sixteon years, and 2,081 yootha.
These general aggregates, derived from
2,760 establishments, are no criterion of
what may be tbe capabilities of Balti?
more as a manufacturing centre in the
future, for there is no point in the coun?
try which possesses greater advantages
of power and resources to be applied in
that direction. We are most convenient
to the supplies of raw material necessary
for the purpose. Cotton reaches us
certainly more readily from the South
than it does lae manufactories of the
Nortb, and iron, lumber and ooal are
1 abundant within onr borders. The
water power in the vicinity of Baltimore
is also admirable, and in time, with the
extended water works whioh are to bring
into the city the superabundant supply
from the Gunpowder, there will be, with
a liberal polioy on the part of the water
board to that end, sufficiency of the fluid
to pat and keep in motion any number
of the smaller and diversified manufac?
tories, which so enlarge and enrich Phi?
ladelphia. The failure of the Baltimore
city delegation to give proper attention
to and get passed at the late session of
the Legislature the Act enabling the city
to issao its bonds for entering upon the
construction of the works for bringing

A BOOT-BLACK ADVENTURE.-Daringa
slight lull, in business here, yesterday',
two littlo boot-blacks, one white and one
black, were standing at the corner of
Second and Franois streets, doing no?
thing, when the white boot-black agreed
to black tho black boot-black's boots.
The black boot-black was, of course,
willing to have his boots blacked by. his
fellow boot-black, and the boot-black
who had agreed to black the boot-black's
boots, weut to work. When the boot?
black had blacked ono of the black boot?
black's boots till it shone in a manner
that would make any boot-black proud,
this boot-black, who bad agreed to black
the black boot-black's boots, refused to
black the other boot of the black boot?
black until the black boot-black, who
had consented to have the white boot-1
black black his boots, should add ftvo
cents to the amount the white booti
black had made blacking other men's
boots. This the boot-black, whose boot
had boen blacked, refused to do, saying
it was good ouough for a black boot?
black to have one boot blacked, and he
didn't care whether the boot that the
boot-black hadn't blacked was blacked
or not. This made tho boot-black, who
had blacked the black boot-black's boot,
angry as a boot-black often gets, and he
vented his black wrath by spitting upon
thc blacked boot of the black boot-black.
This roused tho latent passions of the
black boot-black, and he prooeeded to
boot tho white boot-black with the boot
which the whito boot-black had blacked.
A fight thon ensued, in which tho white
boot-black, who had refused to black tbe
unblocked boot of the black boot-black,
blacked tho black boot-black's viciocary |
organ, and in which the black boot-black I
woro all tho blacking off his blacked
boot in booting tho white boot-black. |
Tho fraternity of boot-blacks afterwards j
convened and denounced the action of
the whito and black boot-blacks as one '
of tho blackest in tho puges of boot?
