The Coxundrum. The learned Doc

drum collector. Ave clip the follow
It must not be supposed that the val
ue of a conundrum depends upon its
length. I will give an instance of mis
taken belief in this respect. A gentle
man was ushered into my study a few
days since, who announced that he had
a conundrum which he would like to
dispose of. I told him that I should be
glad to hear it, and begged him to be
seated and proceed to state it. He
thereupon drew a chair to the table,
aud pulled from his pocket a sheet of
" You do not trust to your memory,"
I said, smiling.
" Oh, no !" he answered, " not in this
instance, for my conundrum is in three
" Three chapters !" I cried " why in
the whole course ot my long life I have
never heard of such a thing as a conun
drum in three chapters."
" " Nevertheless it is true, sir, as you
shall hear, if you wish."
" Certainly, wish it," I replied. "I
would not on any account miss hearing
it, although I am much inclined to doubt
the success of so combined an undert ak
ing." "Judge for yourself, sir," he answer
ed, and proceeded to read the MS. as
It is doubtless generally known that
near Mount Cenis a tunnel through the
Alps is in process of excavation. From
the opening on either side of the moun
tain, the tunneling has proceeded for
about a mile, and the darkness and
gloom of the cavern in which the work
men delve, day after day, can scarcely
be imagined by those whose lives have
been spent merely on the smiling sur
face of the earth I will not attempt to
In the south of England, a gentleman
named Parker possessed a farm, the
crreater part of which, being subject to
inundations, was useless for the purpos
es of tillage. Being of an enterprising
disposition, Mr. Parker conceived the
idea of draining these meadows, and af
ter years of labor, succeeded in doing so
by means of a long and wide ditch,
which was at once a source of wealth to
him, and of wonder to the country side.
"What Is the difference between this
ditch and the tunnel under the Alps ?
One is Parker's ditch, and the other
dark as pitch.
It i3 needless to any that I purchased
this, if it were only for the unique char
acter of the tMnsr.
Close of the Session'. Salem Fe
male Academy closed its session on
"Wednesday evening last, with a grand
Musiclal Entertainment. The music
was well selected and exquisitively per
formed before a large and appreciate
audience. It was a complete succes,
and all present were highly gratified
with the proficiency exhibited by the
young ladies. The Chapel was taste
ty decorted with flowers.
During the session just closed, the
number of pupils was 244, from the
following States :Xorth Carolina 116;
Georgia 28 ; Virginia 13; Tennessee 12;
Mississippi 10 ; South Carolina 9 ; Ala
bama 9 ; Arkansas 3 ; Texas 1 ; Salem,
X. C, 43 total 244.
In this connection, we would express
the deep regret of this community, that
the Rev. Robert DeSchweinitz has va
cated the Presidency of Salem Female
Academy, having receieved and accept
ed an appointment to take charge of an
institution of learning at Nazereth,
Pennsylvania. He carries with hint
the best wishes of our citizens for his
future prosperity and happiness.
Mr. DeSchweinitz was deservedly
one of the most popular and highly es
teemed principals who has ever presid
ed over the destines of Salem's time
honored institution of learning. Un
der his administration it has advanced
in public favor, beyond precedent. The
present magnificent academic structure
was erected under his superision, and
will ever remain a monument to his
good taste, enterprise and liberality.
He and his worthy lady, enjoyed the
love, respect, and esteem of the pupils ;
and the parental training and whole
some admonitions imparted to the large
number of young ladies, will ever have
a place in their memories.
Rev. Mr. Grunert, the newly-appointed
President, is about to take charge of
the responsible duties of hi predecessor.
He is a gentleman well qualified for the
position, having als.q had much experi
ence in the "educational line, is a ripe
scholar, and will, no doubt, sustain the
popularity of the old Institution. For
the past nine years, he has ably filled
the office of Assistant Principal. Salem
Sleep. .The editor ofthe Eveans
ville Jounal brings into his columns the
following on the subject of sleep. Pray
sir, how do you know how much sleep,
women require ?
Women reqmre more sleep than men,
and farmers less than those engasred in
any other occupation. : Editors', report
ers, printers and telegraph operators re
quire no sleep at all.' Lawyers can
sleep as ranch as they please, aB they
will thus be kept out of mischief.

Foreign Wines Their Spurious
Nature. A correspondent of the Chi
cago lyost writes very sensibly on the
subject of foreign wines. Having quo
ted FalstafPs panegyric on " your ex
cellent sherries," he predicates that if
Sir John had lived in our day, and
drank the compound sold as sherry, he
would have sung a very different song.
Says the writer:
The juice of the grape contains prop
erties of the highest medical value ; and
when fermented and scientifically con
verted into wine, constitutes the most
rational beverage that has been vouch
safed to mankind next to water, the
universal element for the use of all things
animate and inanimate. It is however,
scarcely possible to get a pure, unadul
terated article of foreign wine in this
country, aud this difficulty is not con
fined to the United States it also ex
tends to the very country where the
wine is produced. Having found it im
possible to procure any pure sherry in
this city, though I had come near pois
oning myself with several samples
which the venders pronounced "pure,"
I wrote to a friend in England to send
me a package of pure sherry, presuming
it could be obtained there. To show
you and your readers that getting mon
ey under false pretenses is practiced in
l.urope as well as here, I will give you
the answer to my request:
Exglaxd, March 4.
I do not believe there is such
a thing as genuine sherry wine to be
had in either England or Scotland It
is all adulterated with bad brandy and
other objectionabl materials. L have
long since ceased to drink it. Port
wine is still worse, yet immense quan
tities are drank. I am told it is almost
impossible to purchase either t.herry or
port, pure and unadulterated, even in
Cadiz or Oporto. They arc first adul
terated there, and then a sf coad dose is
added here, from some horrible com
pounds. In much of the sherry that is
sold, I am assured that tlieve is not a
single drop of grape juic ;. There are
large manufactories in II r aburg where
sherry is made without a ngle drop of
the juice of the grape. I Inch stuff is
enough to noison people, l-or this reas
on those wines which weie from time
immemorial the accustomed beverages
ofthe higher and middle, c" asses of Great
Britain, have come to be. shunned as
poisons. Our strong al'-s have come to
be substituted as the common table bev
erages. I doubt i would be possible
for you to get pure sberry, even if you
imported direct froia Cadiz to America
certainly none o4' it comes to Eng
land, so far as ny observation goes.
We are beginning to use the light
French wines. There is no wine I like
so well as pure B iirgundy.
Leaving Europe to herself, it is more
than we can do successful- to cope with
the adulterator . of wines and liquors in
this country. The extent to which it is
practiced amor.g liquor dealers as a class
would be incredible were it not well
established fact, known to thousands in
every large cor jmunity, besides the deal
ers themselves . Wines of foreign growth
are too little used in this country to
have their true, flavor and properties ap
preciated ; h euce frauds are most easily
practiced. Tbey are daily prescribed
by physicians and resorted toby inva
lids, who confidently take into their
stomachs a poison worse than the dis
ease they v ish to eradicate. Few can
detect the purious character of the ar
ticle. Were it the water we are accus
tomed to d aaw from our hydrants here
in Chicago the cheat would be at once
detected you can't pass the stuff off
for water i ipon man or beast. I should
like to wit ness the joke it any liquor
dealer has the cheek to try it.
Were n--t this article so longalready,
I would siow you what vile stuff goes
under the name of brandy, wine, cordi
als, gin, & c, and add a few receipts for
making b randy, sherry, &.

The N. C. Banking Law.
AN ACT TO ENABLE THE BANKS OF THE
STATE TO CLOSE THEIR BUSINESS.
Whereas, The linancial policy of the Federal
Government adopted to maintaiu the national
credit, with the heavy taxes imposed by that Gov
ernment on the B..nks of the State, makes it a
bolutcly necessary that said Banks should close
their business, and renders a further continu nice
of tueir corporate existence idle and useless to the
people of the State,
Section 1. lie it enacted by the General Axxernbhj

Stockholders of any of the Banks chartered by the
General Assembly of this State s!wl be unwilling

creditors, and to close its business and surrender

ferred, including all debts due to such Bank or to
anv person lor its nsc and all liens and securities
therefor. The court may require suc-l Bunk by
its Cashier or other proper ofticer 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 deem ne
cessary or useful to enable the commissioner to
demand or recover and receive the estate and ef
fects of such Bank for the benetit of its creditors.
The commissioner shall have the like remedy to
recover and receive all the estate, debts and effects
belonging to such Bank at the time of tiling its
bill, as such Bank might have had if no proceed
in:rs had been had under this act; aud should any
such Bauk have made any sale or transfer of its
property or effects, fraudulent as to its creditors
but valid as between the parties, in such cases
such commissioner shall stand in the place ofthe
creditors, and may recover and receive such pro
perty or etleets so trauduleutlysoldor transferred,
although such Bank could not have doue so. In
all suits prosecuted by such Commissioner at
law or in Equity the plaintill' shall be styled " The
