long to be the great medi um of success in business, and
the prelude to wealth. And I have made tt an inva

me that moneg thus spent is well laid out; a by

Superior Court. Tho Spring Term of the
Superior Court of Law and Equity, for Wake
county, Judge D. G. Fowle presiding, commenced
at the Court House in this city, yesterday.
The charge of His Honor to the Grand Jury,
-which embraced the usual points, was able, clear
and earnest. We have not listened to an abler or
more perspicuous charge to a Grand Jury for
many years. He particularly dwelt upon the
crimes of larceny and robbery, which, since the
close of the war, have become so common through
out the country. Ho alluded to the changed
status of the negro race, and stated that they were,
by an understanding between the officers of the
Freedinan's Bereau, turned over to the civil
Courts for the trial of such offenses against the
laws, as they may be charged with, while the law
makes no discrimination in the award of penal
ties, between them and the whites; and that should
any controversy arise, it would be between the
Bureau and the Court, and not with the Grand
Jury. It is, therefore, their duty to make pre
sentment of all cases of breach of law, whether
by whites or blacks.
There appeared to be a goodly number of pre
sentments preparing to go before the Grand Jury,
and we have no doubt, there will be a pretty full
"The Great Benefactor," at Box 201,
Oxford, N. C, is informed that his advertisement
will not be inserted, its character being such as
to exclude it from the columns of any decent
newspaper. We know that times are hard, and
that people are obliged " to make every edge cut
that can," in order to live, but rather than resort
to the business proposed, we would advise the
advertiser to go to faro dealing, or stealing small
things that he may find lying about, or any simi
lar occupation, as being more respectable than
the one he proposes to advertise.
The New Paper. In our columns will be
found a prospectus of a new Snnday School paper,
to be published by a couple of the youthful Sun
day School scholars in this city, to which we
would call the special attention of the scholars of
Sabbath Schools, and of parents generally. The
price of the paper is put so low that every body
can take one or more copies and never feel the
Trial of Maj. Gee. The Military Com
mission, sitting in the trial of Maj. Gee, met at

Connection Completed. The trains passed
over the Railroad Bridge, at Weldon, we learn,
on yesterday, for the first time since the bridge
at that point was burned last Spring. This com
pletes the connection, by railroad, between Ra
leigh and Petersburg, and between Kaleigh and
Norfolk, a convenience that will bo appreciated
by travellers and traders.
We learn from the Charlotte Times, that the
bridge over the Catawba river between Charlotte
and Columbia, will be finished by the 10th of
May, by which time laying of the tract near Co
lumbia will be completed, thus filling the gaps
in the line to Charleston.
P. S. After the above was written and in typ; ,

Easter. Sunday, 1st inst, was the day ob
served in commemoration of the resurrection of
Christ, by the Greek, the Roman Catholic, the
Lutheran and English Churches, and by the Eu
ropean Calvinists. By the former, it is the most
joyful of all the sacred festivals. Prior to the
Council of Nice, in the year 325, disputes arose as
to the proper day to be observed for this festival ;
the Greek and Roman Churches observing differ
ent days, so that while one set of Christians were
mourning in commemoration of the passion,
others were rejoicing in the resurrection of the
Savior. In the second century the dispute arose
to such a degree that much bloodshed resulted ;
the Eastern Church would not discontinue the
celebration of the feast at the same time with the
.Jews, (who observed it as the feast of the Pass
over,) while the Western Church insisted upon
celebrating it without the Paschal lamb, and be
ginning it on Sunday, the day of Christ's resur
rection. The Council of Nice finally settled that
it should be observed on the Sunday following
the first full moon after the vernal equinox,
which, this year, happened on the first day of
The Monday after Easter Snnday, has been ob
served in many portions of this country, time out
i of mind, as a holiday, without any particular re
ference to religious matters, and we observed,
yesterday, many fishing rods and fowling pieces,
, in the hands of boys and free colored American
citizens, making for the adjacent woods and mill
ponds, in order to keep up the old custom of
fishing and hunting, which seem to be looked
upon as the appropriate manner of observing the
i Wedidnots.ee any"eastcr eggs" in circula
tion, yesterday ; as these are gotten up for the
occasion, mostly among the IUthcrans. In Ca
barrus and other counties In the Western part of
this State, where this respectable and clever class
of Christians have settled, we suppose that not
less than one hundred bushels of speckled eggs
have been eaten since Saturday morning.
Destructive Fire in Danville. The Dan
ville Semi-Weekly Times, gives an account of a
destructive fire in Danville, on Monday night of
last week, by which a large woollen factory, sev
eral stores, shops, and a large amount of other
property was consumed. The loss, exclusive of
stealage, is estimated by the Times at from $150,
000 to $200,000. A colored man, named Ned Hol
land, was caught in one of the burning houses,
and perished in the flames."
We gather an instructive hint from the account
of this fire; the Times says, speaking of the effi
cient .aid of one of the fire companies in stopping
the ravages of the flames, " the fire engine has al
ready paid for itself a hundred fold, and the In
1 surance Offices may well bless it." Let onr peo
ple here in Raleigh reflect a little on this declaration.-'

- , . . :, WNNECTICTJT ELECTION. :Y.-
The people of Connecticut voted yesterday
for Governor. The candidates are Gen. Jo-;
seph Hawley, Union, and Mr; English, Dem-
ocrat,: ; The contest is very close. . Gen. H,
differs with the President as to his plan for
restoring the Union, but does aot assail him,
The Unionists of Connecticut appear td be
very much, indisposed to separate from the
President.. .Their leading men seem to dep
recate the violent radical attacks, on the
President. Mr. English supports with en
thusiasm the President's plan. "Whoever
may be elected, it may be fairly inferred that
the President has been sustained by the peo
ple of that State, for this reason : All the
Democrats are with him, and at least one-
half of the Unionists. Party feeling may
divide the people in their votes, but substan
tially they are with the President by a large
majority. The Republicans or Unionists are
greatly strengthened by the tact that they
were conspicuous in the war for the Union,
while the Democrats, as is alleged, embar
rassed the government during the war.
. We shall no doubt be able in our next to
announce the result of this election.
On Thursday last both Houses paid the
last solemu tribute of respect to Senator
Solomon foot, ot Vermont. The Washing
ton Star srives the following remarkable ac
count of his last moments :
" On Tuesday, as if forwarned of approach
ing death, he spent the whole day in taking
leave ot mends and m religious exercises.
To his wife, sobbing by his bedside, and to
his friends he said, ' There is no occasion for
weeping. This is Heaven begun below. 1
do trust in my Saviour !' A little later he
remarked that he had been trying to call to
mind if there was any human being to whom
he had ever done an injury. If there was, he
trusted to be forgiven. He expressed much
ratification at a visit paid him by the Sec
retary of War, and spoke of the kindness of
mac omciai to nun. reiereuce to ma
death, he requested that no unnecessary pa
rade should be made. He -wished to be sent
to his home in Rutland, Vt., that his remains
might rest with the people who had done so
much for him. His great grief was in part
ing with his beloved wife. During the night
he made an expression of faith in God, and
partook of the communion bread and wine.
At 7 o'clock in the morning it was evident
he could not last long, and he signified his
desire to once more sec the Capitoi where he
had served so long. He was lifted up, but
his eyes were already covered with the film
of death. The 33d Psalm was then read,
and his favorite verses of faith in the Re
deemer were sung. by his desire. He then
folded his wife to his heart in a last fond
embrace, and exclaimed, ' "What ! can this
be death ?' and shortly after a look of ecstacy
came over his face, and he cried out, ' I see
it ! I see it ! The gates are wide open.
iieautiiul! lieauutul ! ' ana immediately ex
Hotti Houses adiourncd over to yesterday.
The deepest interest prevails as to the vote
of the Senate on the late veto message of the
President. Those opposed to it seem to be
confident of their strength to pass the civil
rights bill over the message.
Correspondence of the Baltimore Sun.
"Washington, March 29. A lull in Con
gressional proceedings will follow the Senate
exploit of ejecting Mr. Stockton and the
shock of the veto message. The House will
not be full for a week or more, as has been
stated by one of its members. It is a season
when members like an opportunity, if possi
ble, to visit their homes. Besides, Congress
takes as much interest in the Connecticut
election as in the grand object of negro suf
frage. If they carry the former, they will
ensure the latter. Connecticut last fall gave
six thousand majority against negro suffrage
in that Republican State. . It the republi
cans again earry it. Congress will be encour
aged to insist on negro suffrage.
The ATew 1 ork Iribune declares that the
veto message renders it absolutely necessary
that the blacks should be protected by giv
ing them the right of suffrage.
If the Connecticut election is carried, as it
probably will be, by the Republicans, it will
.be claimed as the victory of radicalism. This
will humble and discourage the few Repub
licans who have manifested conservative
proclivities. We shall witness its mischievous
effects in all the future political legislation
Senators are now in Connecticut, deeming
their duties there of moie importance than
those in the Senate for the present. On
Monday, perhaps, they will hear arguments
against the veto message, and on Tuesday,
iftheir new recruits are all in place, they will
override the Pressdent's message.
The bankrupt bill will be tried again in a
fuller House. Some of its friends regard it
with less interest now than they did before
it was so essentially modified.
MR. LINCOLN'S VIEWS.
Col. Lamon, late marshal of this District,
and the intimate, confidential friend of Pres
ident Lincoln, writes a letter, published in
the Intelligencer, stating " that he is entirely
certain from Mr. Lincoln's repeated declara
tions that he would have exerted all his au
thority, power and influence to bring
about an immediate reconciliation between
the two sections of the country. As far as
depended upon him, he would have had the
Southern States represented in both Houses
of Congress within the, shortest possible
time. Mr. Lincoln knew the designs of the
radicals to keep up the strife for their own
advantage, and he was determined to thwart
them, as he himself told me often."
INTERNAL REVENUE RECEIPTS.
The receipts from Internal Revenue yesr
eerday, before the closing of the Bureau,
were $398,071 67. The receipts for the day
were $1,003,154 59. Wash. Star, Mch. 29th.
No election has yet been held for Senator
from this State. The contest will be close
between the radicals and the friends of the
SENATOR FROM CONNECTICUT.
The impression is that the Governor of
Vermont will appoint Hon. Hiland Hall as
the successor of Mr. Foot. Mr. Hall is sup
posed to be radical in his views. Senator
Dixon is rapidly recovering from his illness,
and will soon resume his seat in the Senate.
He is a friend of the President.

MR. STEVENS WANTS THINGS " HURRIED UP."
Hon. Thaddeus Stevens has telegraphed as
follows to the good people of Connecticut :

Hon. James M. Scovel, &c, &c.
Dear Sir : By all means hurry up your
election. Give us a Conservative. A Radical

better than a twaddler.
We are enabled to announce that there is
no truth in the statement telelegraphed by a

the effect that Secretary McCulloch intends

market early in April by anticipating the
May interest on tho five twenty coupons.-

Belligerent Rebels in the Convention They de
clare the fighting not over yet Unionists go-
ng home tn disgust. .
Austin, March 12, 1866.
In the Constitutional Convention, on the
8th ult., the debate on the repeal of the or
dinance oi secession brought lorward Messrs.
Waul, Ireland, and Runnells, three unpar
doned rebel generals, each of whom main
tained that the State had a right to secede in
1861. In a speech made by Waul, he de
clared that the people of Texas had been
marching to such other music of late that
they would not submit to everything that
was asked ol them. Mr. Ireland also re
marked that they (the rebels) would have to
girt on their swords and go to the assistance
ot President Johnson. Many ot the Union
delegates are getting sick and tired of the
proceedings, and are leaving in disgust.
There are prospects of a general smash-up
in the convention before long.

From the Texas True Issue, of Nov. 121b. 1864.
At his residence In Fayette county .VTexas, af
ter a long and painful illness, on the 20th Octo
ber last, Mr. Edwin L. Moore, an old and highly
respected citizen. s
Mr. Moore was born in Halifax county, North
Carolina, on the 29th January, 1797, and in 1837,
removed to Sumpter county, Ala., and In 1839 he
removed to Fayette county, Texas, where he con
tinned to reside up to his death.
As a man of sterling integrity and moral worth,
Edwin L. Moore had but few equals.
I have known him for thirteen years, and in all
his transactions during that period I have never
known him to deviate from the path of rectitude.
He has left his children a legacy in bis good name,
of which they can never be deprived.
As a husband he was kind and loving ; as a
father he possessed an affection for his children
known to but few men ; as a friend his attach
ments were strong and could not be easily sever
ed; as a citizen he was ever ready to perform all
the duties devolving upon him ; and last though
not least, as a Christian, he was devout and faith
ful. Those who have known him longest, can
best appreciate the qualities of his head and heart.
Truly, the ways of Providence are mysterious,
and we must all bow to them however afflicting.
May the bereaved family remember, that
" Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth." Le
the wife and mother grieve and weep not over
him whom the Lord hath taken from her. Let
the sons and (laughters imitate the example of
their father ; and let each and all of them endeavor
to meet with the departed spirit in that " bourne
from whence no traveller returns."
God help them in this the hour of their sad be
reavement A FRIEND.

ALL MEN OF EDUCATION and reflection
should ponder well upon the advantages of
Life Insurance, and should promulgate their ac
quired knowledge throughout the whole circle ot
their acquaintance. They Bhould remember that
it recommends itself in many instances, not mere
ly as a measure of expediency, but as a bonnden
duty, a duty easily discharged by the payment ot
a moderate sum. The question is : shall the mar
ried man trust the comfort of his family to a
chance? albeit a promising one; or is he not
rather bound to make sure of a provision, as far
as I e can, for his wife, his children, his helpless
relations, for all those dependant upon him for
support, nnd through the medium of Life Insu
rance, assure an adequate provision again: t im
pending poverty and irretrievable distress ? How
"y i-.n have I heard say : " Yes, but I want to
insure l'or a large sum when I do insure, and it is
not convenient now." And so, because the man
cannot gratify his vanity and pay thepremium on
$20,000, he dies, and leaves his wife and child
hou eless, sorrow-stricken and broken hearted,
thrust on the cold kindness of quasi charitable
relations, 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, for the wife who had been hi:
nurse in sickness, his friend in distress, and whom
he had sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
payment of $ 75 or $100, secure many thousands.
Strange that man, who iiwes to his wife the chief
chain of his existence, the every day comfort of
his life, should be able to look heartlessly to that
period when their last parting shall take place,
when removed to that world, where to him, all is
hope and consolation, he shall have wilfully left
in darkness and desolation, steeped in poverty
and wretchedness, to straggle with the hard jus
tice of a hard hearted world. Resorting to Life
Insurance is risking nothing, but truly securing a
certain profit upon that which is, at all times, an
