Chi.oridk op Lime. The season for
a free use of disinfecting agents is rapid
ly drawing near. The cholera is report
ed as having already made its dread ad
vent to our shores. After a complete
renovation of cellars, vaults &c. about
our premises, the next thing in order is
the free and continued use of a disinfec
tant. Perhaps none cheaper or better
can be found than chloride of lime. It
appears to be possessed of other virtues
also as the following from a London
England paper attests :
Some years ago I read in a French
scientifiic periodical, that chloride of
lime would rid the house of all vermin.
I treasured up the information until an
opportunity offered for testing its val
ue. I took an old country house, infes.
ted with rats, mice and flies. I stuffed
every knot-hole and mouse hole with
the chloride. I thrcAV it on the
stone floor of the dairy and cellars. I
kept saucers of it under the chests of
drawers, or some other convenient piece
of furniture ; in every nursery, bed or
dressing room. An ornamental glass
held a quantity at the foot cf each stair
case. Cow sheds, stables and pig styles,
all had their dose, and the result was
glorious. I thoroughly routed my ene
mies ; and if the rats, more impudent
than all the rest, did make renewed at
tacks upon the dairy, in about ten
months the chloride again routed them,
and left me master of my own prem
ises. Last season was a great one for wasps.
They could not face tlie chloride, though
in the dining room in which we had
none as it smell, to me most refresh
ing and wholesome, is not approved by
all persons we had a perpetual war
fare. All, all this comfort for eight
pence ! Only let house-wives beware
that they place not the chloride in their
china pantries, or in too close proximit y
to bright steel wares, or the result will
be that their gilded china will be re
duced to plain, and their bright, steel
fenders to rusty iron, in a short time.
We advise a trial of the chloride of
lime for the vermin that intest the grape
vine, those pests, the rose bugs ; also
the square bugs, and tlie cucumber bugs, j
and, indeed for all bug family, so well j
known to gardners and farmers. j
Speech of Napoleon. Napoleon
made a significant speech at Auxei ra,
France, on the IGth instant, in which he
said he detested the treaty of 1S15.
The Paris Bourse accepted it as a sig
nal for war. Severe panics set in, and
Rentes fell two per cent. The follow
ing is the speech in full:
"I see with pleasure that the memo
ry of the tirst empire has not been effa
ced from your minds. Believe me, for
my own part I have inherited the feelings
entertained by the chief of my family
for this energetic and patriotic popula
tion, who sustained the Emperor in
good as in evil fortune.
" T have a debt of gratitude to dis
charge towards Yonne. This depart
ment was the first to give me its suffra
ges in 1848, because it knew, with the
majority of the French people, that its
interests were my interests, and that
I drtestcd equally irith them those trea
ties of 1815 irhich it is tioir soayht to
iiaoi the sole basis of our foreiyn o
icy. I thank you for the sentiments you
have expressed towards me.
"Among you I breathe freely, for it is
among the working popnlation, both in
town and country, that I find the real
genius of France.
Death From the Stixoof a Fish.
We are pained to learn that 3Ir. John
Myres, residing near New Oxford, died
on Wednesday of last week from lock
jaw, produced by a wound from the
sting of a fish. It appears that some
four or five weeks previous Mr. M. had
purchased a lot offish, and in handling
them one of his fingers received a slight
prick or wound from the fin of one of
the fish. Although painful at the time,
he did not pay much attention to the
wound, thinking it was a mere trifle,
but in a few days afterwards the wound
became very painful, his hand and arm
swelling fearfully, causing him the most
intense agony. He suffered for several
weeks in the greatest misery, mortifica
tion set in, and death came to his relief.
He was aged about fifty-eight years,
and was a most estimable gentleman.
He leaves an interesting family to
mourn his untimely loss. Hanover
Another JLmemdmest. Mr. Sum
ner to-day gave notice of an amendment
intended to be proposed to Senate bill
292, entitled a bill to provide for resto
ring to the States lately in insurrection
their full political rights.
Strike out after enacting clause, of
the first section, and insert the follow
ing section as a substitute : That when
any State lately in rebellion shall have
ratified the foregoing amendments, and
shall have modified its constitution and
laws in conformity therewith, and shall
have further provided that there shall
be no denial of the elective franchise to
citizens of the United States because of
race or color, and .that all persons shall
be equal before the law, the Senators
and Representatives from such States,
if found duly elected and qualified, may
after having taken the required oaths of
office, be admitted into Congress as
such : Provided, That noth; ngin this
- A. ' 1 II 1 -
section snail oe so construed as to re
quire the disfranchisement of any loyal
person who is now entitled to vote.

AN ACT TO ENABLE THE BANKS OF THE
STATE TO CLOSE THEIR BUSINESS.
Whereas, The linancial policy of the Federal
Government adopted to maintain the national
credit, with the heavy taxes imposed by that Gov
ernment on the B..nks of the State, makes it ab
solutely necessary that said Banks should close
their business, and renders a further continu nice
of their corporate existence idleand useless to the
people of the State,
Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly
of the Ulate of Xorth-Carolina, and it is hereby
enacted by the uuthrity oj the same. That if -the
Stockholders of any ol tlie Banks chartered by the
General Assembly ot this State sli-ll be unwilling
to close the busiuess of their Banks by an assign
ment, and are desirous to appropriate all the estate
and effects of such Bank lor the benefit ol its
creditors, and to close its business and surrender
tlieir chartered rights and franchises in conformi
ty with the subsequent provisions of this act,
such Stockholders may by their bill in equity iu
the name of such Bank tiled in the Court of Equity
of the county iu which the principal Bauk or any
of its brandies may be located, require the credi
tors of such Bank to prefer and establish their
demands within tueh time (not less than twelve
mouths alter decree therefor) as shall be allowed
by the Court. The Court shall upon tiling such
bill appoint as commissioner a suitable person
acquainted with the business of such Bank, who
shall be paid for his services such sum as may be
allowed by the court. Such commissioner shall
give bond with ample security, payable to the
State for the faittful discharge ot his duties in
such sum as shall be approved by the court,

sed, had of held or was vested with, at tlie time
of iilii'gsuch bill, and which such Bauk could at
that time have lawfully sold, assigned or trans
ferred, including all debts due to sucn Bank or to
any person lor its use and all liens and securities
therefor. The court may require such Bank by
its Cashier or other proper olliccr to endorse
without recourse, all such bills or notes, draw all
such checks or orders for money and execute such
other paper writings as the court shall ileein ne
cessary or uselul to enable the commissioner to
demand or recover and receive the estate and e'
fects of such Bank for the benefit of its creditors.
Tlie commissioner shall have the like remedy lo
recover and receive all the estate, debts and effects
belonging to such Bank at the time of tiling its
bill, as such Bank migut have had if no proceed

properly or effects, fraudulent as to its creditors
but valid as between the parties, in such cases
