Rascality again on a Rampage. Some
of the old rats who took fright last winter, on the
doubling of the police force, seem to have gotten
over their scare, and are coming out of their holes
aj;ain. On Monday night the shop of Mr. Bell,
gun and lock smith, on Wilmington street, was
entered, and a number of instruments and about
two huudred keys and skeleton keys, taken ; for
tbe purpose, no doubt, of picking locks when oc
On Tuesday night, the rogues were out again,
and made two attempts at entering stores on Fay
etteville street. They were successful in the at
tempt on the jewelry store of Mr. John CL Palmer,
which they entered by removing a pone of glass
over the front door. It appears they first made
an effort to force tbe back door, and also endea
vored to force open a house in the back lot of the
premises, but were frightened from there by a
frecdiuan who happened to be passing. They
11k-n effected an entrance from the front, as stat
ed, and stole .some watches, a quantity of silver
forks and spoons and a lot of rings. The most
valuable of the watches and jewelry were in a safe
place, and they failed to get them.
Their next attempt was on the store of Messrs.
! Heai tt and Lewis, where they tried to make an
entrance by boring through the front door, but
in which they failed, although they bored nine
holes around the hasp of the door.
Now, these things were done on Fayetteville
street,the most public street in the City the moon
shining brightly weather clear and not incle.
nient, and a policeman on the beat. People are in-
Iquiriug how these acts could be done without de
itection, and we think there is, in the absence of
any special explanation, ground for the inquiry.
These acts of roguery, taken with other pre
monitory symptoms that have lately been de
reloping themselves, show that the old disease of
rascality muggiug, house-breaking and thieving
generally is about to break out again in all its
virulence, and it therefore becomes necessary to
inaugurate stringent measures again to prevent
its spread, aud its attacks.
Are Mail Carriers Officers? We were,
perhaps, not sufficient clear in our answer to an
enquiry of the Charlotte Democrat, last week, in
regard to mail carriers and contractors being re-
qued to take the " test oath." As stated by us
last ureek, contractors and mail carriers under the
Confederacy, are not considered officers in the
light thrt would include them in any of tie excep
tions to amnesty granted in the President's pro
clamation, aud consequently not required to have
a special pardon, but they are required to take
the test oath on being appointed to any position
under the Federal government, just as any other
person would be. All persons holding positions
of trast under the Federal government, whether
contractors, mail carriers, or any other appointr
ment, in the States engaged in the rebellion, are
required to take the test oath before they can en
ter upon the discharge of duty. This we under
stand to be the law and the decision thereon by
the Attorney General in regard to this matter.
Two Old Citizens Gone. Mr. William
Brown and Mr. Charles Wilson, two old and high
ly respected citizens of Hinhorough died within
half an hour of each other, on Tuesday last, about
midday. Mr. Brown had eaten his dinner and
lighted his pipe for a smoke, when he fell dead
without a moment's warning. He was something
over fifty years of age. Mr. Wilson was on the
streets the day before his death, apparently enjoy
ing his usual health. He had reached the age
allotted to man, being about three score and ten

Chiriqui Images. Wc hare had the pleasure
of examing a quantity of gold received by Dr. J.
C. Ayer&Co., from Honduras, in payment for
their medicines, which are extensively sold
throughout Central America. Among massive
crosses, bracelets, and chains, are the rude images
which have been taken from the graves of the
Chiriqui chiefs birds, turtles, serpents, bugs and
reptiles done in solid gold. They carry us back
beyond historic times, to periods and places where
barbarism reigned supreme. They seem to come
here now in mute appeal from the winding sheets
of their ancestors, to ask for the simple Indians
in the mounta ns, medical protection from culti
vated skill, against diseases which gather them
up in too early graves. Ignorant and unlettered
as they are, they have learned of the white man
enough to know where to apply for relief, and
what will bring it. Our well known townsmen,
above named, inform us that they require their
remittances from foreign countries now to be
made in silver and gold. Lowell Mass.) Sentinel.

Raleigh, N. C, March 27th, 1866.'
To the ladies of Raleigh, my physicians, land

young gentlemen, who so assiduously watched

tendered, for their attention, kindness and favors
so lavishly, kindly and generously bestowed du

A Book. When the Union army passed
through Wake County, in April, 1865, a number
of " bummers" went to the house of John Rose
mond, four miles west of Raleigh, and took from
him a number of articles, among them a Prayer
Book of the Roman Catholic Church, printed in
the Polish language. This book was the only
memento the owner possessed, of his deceased
father, and on that account it was highly prized.
It was bound in dark leather, with an imitation
of a small cross enclosed in a circle, in gilt, on
one side, and on the other a gilt circle enclosing
the letter M.
On a fly-leaf of one side was written that the
book was sent from Poland to John Roscniond
by his brother as a memento of his father on the
other side is written a request that the book
should be buried in the coffin with the owner,
when he dies.
It is probable that it was thrown aside or left
somewhere in the country ,by those who took it,
and, as the owner prizes it very highly, he hopes
to have it returned to him, and he is willing to
pay a handsome reward for its recovery. He may
be found at the Standard office.
Mr. Rosemond respectfully asks other papers
of the State to copy this notice.
. Pardoned. The Washington papers state
that Hon. W. N. Edwards of North-Carolina, has
been pardoned by tbe President. Mr. Edwards
was President of the Convention of 1861, which
took the State out of the Union.
The Circus. The Richmond correspondent
of the Petersburg Express says :
"It is confidently asserted that Mr. Dan Cas
tello's circus carried ten thousand dollars away from
this City, and that he is so well pleased with the
patronage bestowed upon him and his moral ex
hibition that he intends to erect a circus building
and spend a large portion of his time with us."

GEN. GRANT AND THE PRESIDENCY.
Wasiixgton, March 10, 1686.
The Galena (III.) Daily Gazette of the
14th inst., has an article evidently written by
Gen. Grant's immediate friends called forth
by the fivct that "mme time since a'
Republican and Union meeting in ttie city
of Rochester, N. Y., had nominated Lieut."
General Grant as the Union candidate for
the Presidency in 1868." It is very signifi
cant. While the attempt to nominate the
General for that office is characterized as
" premature agitation," the writer states that
' his friends look forward with pride and
hope to the time when he shall receive the
highest office which can be bestowed upon
hiui by a grateful people, as a reward for the
inestimable services he has rendered his
country." The article says that " he takes
no part with the president as against Con
gress, and no part with Congress as against
the President." His "official acts" are his
present platform. " His views in regard to
the -necessity of the freedmen's bureau and
the keeping the troops in the rebel States are
recorded.' " His orders lor the protection
of Union men in the South, his suppression
of disloyal papem in the South, and his
opinion of disloyal papers in the North are
also on record." " His written declaration,
nearly three months in advance of Mr. Lin
coln's immortal proclamation, that slavery
should he wiped out Itefore the tear ended, is
well known to all intelligent men." This im
portant declaration is succeeded by an itali
cised passage, which is as follows :
We know that all General Grant's hopes
and sympathies are with the great and pa
triotic Union party of this country. In feel
ing and in sentiment he is strongly identified
with the millions of loyal people who, in the
long years of war and carnage and blood,
gave their hearts, their blood, and their trea
sure to their country. We have neither
sympathy nor toleration for any party, nor
any set of men, who were against the coun
try in its terrible time of trial and peril
through which it is has safely passed."
Further particulars of the great fire at
Cincinnati have been received. Adams Ex

ALL MEN OF EDUCATION and reflection
should ponder well upon the advantages of
Lite Insurance, and should promulgate their ac
quired knowledge throughout the whole circle ot
their acquaintance. They should n member that
it recommends itself i ninny instances, l.ot mere
lj- r.s a measure of expediency, but as u Iiounden
duly, a duty easily discharged by the payment ot
a moderate sum. The question is: shall the nn-r-ried
man trust the comfort of his family to a
chance ? albeit a promi.-ing one; or is he n. t
ratner bound to make sure of a provision, as far
as e can, for his wife, his children, his helpless
relations, for all those dependant upon him for
support, i nd through the medium of Life Insu
rance, assure an adequate provision again t im
pending poverty and irretrievable distress ? How
many men have I heard say : " Yes, but I wi.nt to
hiMire for a large sum when I do iii.-uie, una ii is
not convenient now." And so, hi cause the man
cannot gratify Lis vanity and pay tiicprtmium on
?0,000, he dies, and leaves his wife and child
hou.-clcss, sorrow-stricken and broken hearted,
thrust on the cold kindness of jnn.i cliariialile
reh.tions, without a cent to bury him or provide
food for themselves. And this because he, the
loving and devoted husband, would not make
even a temporary provision, consonant with his
circumstances, lor the wife wlo had been hi:,
uuvse in sickness, his friend in distress, and whom
he had sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
payment of JS75 or ?i 00, secure many thousands.
Strange that man, who i-wcs to hU wife the chief,
chain of his existence, the every day comfort, of
his life, should be able to look heart h ssly to that
period when their last parting shall take place,
whin removed to ttint world, where to him, all is
hope and consolation, he siiall have wilfully left
in darkness and desolation, steeped in poverty
and wretchedness, to struggle wiih the hard ins
tiee of a hard hearted world. Resorting to Life
Insurance is risking nothing, but truly securing a
certain prolit upon that which is, at all times, an
