Failed. As Capt. Wm. MacdouaUl, at Messrs.
B. P. Williamson & Co.'s, who sleeps over the
Store, -was about to retire, on Wednesday night
hist, lie stumbled against an empty goods box,
au old clothes rack and a piece of scantling, that
were placed against the wall, near the angle form
ed by the saloon of E. E. Harris and the store of
Messrs. Williamson & Co., and on looking np, ho
saw a dark object at the top of the above articles,
and before he was able to make ont the object
fully, it tumbled off its perch and made tracts
vigorously through the aisle to the street, ex
cla'uuiug before starting, "it's me Joe; I wanted
to get into the Saloon," and that is the last that
lias been seen or heard of the scamp. No doubt
it was somebody endeavoring to gain entrance
into the saloon through an upper window, for
the mirnose of pillage. Mr. Macdonald could not
make out whether the fellow was white or black.
University of North-Carolina. We are
indebted to Prof. Charles Phillips, A. M., for a
catalogue of the Trustees, faculty and students of
the University of the State, lS64-'66; from
which it appears that there are in attendance, the
present Collegiate year, 88 Etudents; 5 from
Alabama, 3 from Tennessee, 2 from Texas, 1 from
Georgia, and 1 from Virginia; the remainder 77
are from our own State.

Although suffering lro:n the effects of the war,
and from the financial depression, the University
bids fair to recover from its difficulties and, at an
early day will, we doubt not, reaeh and even sur
pass its fomierproud position among the literary
iustitutions of the country.
" Lo ! like a glorious pile of diamonds bright,
Built on the steadfast cliffs, the waterfall
Pours fourth its gems of pearl aud silver light :
They sink, they rise, and sparkling, cover all
With infinite refulgence .'
Notwithstanding all which, waterfalls seem to
be going ont of fashion ; but that makes little or
no difference, for a lady's head will look well
enough without one, If decorated with one of
those pretty, fancy, tempting, tastey, jaunty, neat,
becoming, cheap aud lasting little hats, that may
be found at Kellogg and Wheeler's. It strikes us
that it would be delig'xtful pastime to kiss a pair
of cherry lips under the brim of one of them.
Another New Engine. The Wilmington
& Weldon Railroad Company have purchased
another new engine, intended lor the passenger
trains on their line, and have christened it the
" Edward Kidder." This is the third new engine
for that road, since the restoration of peace, and
it is said they have three more ordered that will
soon be on the line.
Sensible Chat. Poor Richard says :
" He that would thrive,
Xlust rise at five,"
and somebody else, (name not important to the
present generation, as the author, no doubt,
writes for future fame,) says :
" He that is wise,
That is what we call pithy and to the point.
The Wilmington Dispatch says : "Spring goods
arc arriving, and sagaeiousiucrchants arc adver
tising them liberally. They think nothing of a
column or half column advertisement now. Sen
sible to the last."
We commend this whole matter to the careful
consideration of those who say they have large
stocks of splendid goods that tl ey can sell cheap,
&c. We guarantee that those whose names are
oftenest seen in public advertisements, and on
large posters in public places, will sell most
goods, that is, if they really have them to sell.
Straws Show, &c. A 6troll through the
City of Raleigh will demonstrate the fact that
a spirit of improvement is gradually developing
itself, and, although no very extensive improve
ments have yet been inaugurated, what has been
done shows what may be expected when the
means for accomplishing it are more abundant.
Among other things we may jot down the follow
ing as worthy of notice :
Vhe completion of the new fence around the
The refitting many fences and buildings on
Four gas lamp posts erected at the North-Carolina
depot, which give light to that long benight

The repairing of the public pamps throughout
It is whispered, also, that steps are bejng taken
to fit up the City Hall in a proper style for con
certs and exhibitions.
Many other signs of the awakening of recuper
ative energy are visible, whleh we hope will re
sult in the entire rebuilding of the waste places of
the city, and the restoration of the beauty, and
air of pleasantness once distinguishing character
istics of the .City of Oak.
Hung Jnrjr. In the case before the Superior
Court, of the State vs. Zilla Thornton, for arson,
from Johnston county, which came up on Thurs
day, the Jury has been unable to agree, and are
still out at the time we go to press, Hon. Sion
H, Rogers, Attorney General, f or the prosecution,
and Hon. Thos. Bragg of Wake, Hon. S. F. Philr
lips of Orange, and Messrs. J. H. Abel and Sydr
ney A. Smith of Johnston, for the defense. We
understand that it is not probable the Jury will
gree on a verdict.
Military Changes. Two Companies of .the-
5th U. S, Cavalry an$ six Companies of the 8th
Regular Infantry arrived in the City on yesterday,
and went into camp, the former at Rocky Branch,
on the south, and the lattor at the camp of the
128th Indiana Volunteers, north' of. the City.
The last named Regiment will be mustered put as
aoon their rolls are made out, and the troops
just arrived with the company of artillery already
here, will take the places of all volunteer troops
in the State. Two of the six companies of In
fantry will remain at Raleigh, and the other four
be distributed to different points West.
What do you Think of it ? Calico at 12
cents a yard ; Ladies Shoes at a pair, and a
perfect avalanche of goods of all sorts and sizes
to match. Looks like old times, don't it? Well,
it's so at Tuckers.
Signs. If signs are a sign of anything, that
fine, new sigu over the entrance ot the Variety
Store of Mr. J. Kiusey, in the brick building on
Fayetteville street, near Martin st, signifies that
something yea, many things nice and prctty
may be found Uiere.
For Mozambiques, Organdies, Chints,
Silks, Poplinettes, Calicoes, Linseys,
Hats, Bonnets, Shoes, Hosiery, Prints
Be sure you cau find them at Kinsey's,
and a thousand other things, "too tedious to
mention." See the advertisement.
Speaking of signs, we have a word or two on
that subject, in connection with Clawson and the
Field and Fireside, which, for want of space, we
must defer to next issue.
Personal. We had the pleasure of meeting
with Hon. R. K. Bridges, who stopped over in the
City on Thursday. Mr. Bridges is now President
of the Wilmington aud Weldon Railroad, and to
bis indefatigable efforts and superior administra
tive ability, the Company and the public are in
debted for a very rapid improvement in the con
dition of his Road. He has, without a fidancial
basis to begin on, succeeded in procuring for his
road six new and splendid engines, a number of
passenger coaches and freight cars, and has, also,
got the track of the road in a good and safoacon

in having the claim of his people allowed, and
will draw the annual interest due them for the

Montague House, and will leave this morning ou
the Western train, for his home in XIacon county.

PROCEKDINGS OP CONGRESS.
Washington, April 4th. Senate. Mr
Stewart asked that the Committee on Re
construction be discharged from the further
consideration of the joint resolution hereto
fore offered by him proposing certain condi
tions on which the Southern States shall be
reinstated, and that they be made the spe
cial order for to-morrow. He spoke in ad
vocacy of his motion, alleging that the coun
try was growing impatient, and demanded
some action at the hands of Congress. It
had been charged that Congress had no de
sire to see the lately seceded States restored
to the Union, aud he desired Congress to
vindicate itself by the speedy adoption of
some definite plan of reconstruction. He
believed that the plan submitted by him
was endorsed by the country.
Pending the consideration of Mr. Stewart's
motion, the morning hour expired, and the
veto message was called up, when Mr. Trum
bull made a speech against it and in favor of
the civil rights bill.

Washington, April 4. The President to
day sent to the House a communication from
the Governor of Alabama, asking that the
State may be allowed to assume and pay in
State bonds the direct tax now due from her,
or that a delay of pa3'mcnt may be authori
zed until the State can, by the sale of its
bonds, or by taxation, make provision forks
liquidation. The President concurs in the
opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury,
that it is desirable that Alabama and the
other Southern States be allowed to assume
and pay their portions of the direct taxes
now due, and therefore recommends the ne
cessary legislation by Congress.
THE NEW YORK SENATE AGAINST TIIE VETO.

quired knowledge throughout the whole eir -le of
their acquaintance. Tliey should remember that
it recommends itself in many instances, notr.iere
I3' as a measure of expediency, but as a botuideii
duty, a duty easily discharged by the payment ot
a moderate sum. The question is : shall the mar
ried man trust the coiniort of his family to a
chauce? albeit a promising one; or is lie wt
rather 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, : nd through the medium of Life Insu
rance, assure an adequate provision agaimt im
pending poverty and irretrievable distress ? How
many meu have I heard say : " Yes, but I want to
insure for a large sum when I do insure, and it is
not convenient now." And so, because the man
cannot gratify his vanity and pay the premium on
),000, he dies, and leaves his wife and child
hou-eless, sorrow-stricken aud broken hearted,
thrust on the cold kindness of ijnari 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
lie had sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
payment of 75 or 100, secure, many thousands.
Strange that man, who owes 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 lef
in darkness and desolation, steeped in poverty
and wretchedness, to struggle with the -hardu
