On yesterday some three to four hundred
emigrants passed through this City on their
way to the northwest. They were of all ages
and both sexes. They were from Iredell,
Stokes, Yadkin, Randolph, and other Coun
ties west of Raleigh.
This emigration from the State is very
much to be deplored. We learn that it is
not confined to the region above mentioned,
but that the tide is swelled by emigrants
from nearly every portion of the State.
The Sentinel, Gov. Worth's organ, says
these people are leaving the State on account
of the " fears which have been excited by
the declarations of the Radicals." If this
be so, it is strange that they are going right
into the midst of the Radicals. As the Sen
tinel has introduced politics in this connec
tion, we will state the facts as tjiey are. These
emigrants are all Unionists, and it is partic
ularly on that account that we regret to see
them leave. It is enough for them to say,
depressed and sorrowful as they are when
leaving their native land, that they are seek
ing a better country. This expression, in
itself, contains a volume. They know we
have here a State government which is at
least indifferent to them, and politicians con
trolling public aff.-iirs who do not hesitate to
ridicule them for their Union sentiments,
and who agree with this very organ of the
Governor in pronouncing leading Unionists
unfit for office on account of their " ineffi
ciency and meanness," and the great body of
the "peace men" of the State " cowards," be
cause they were anxious at any and every
period during the war, to obtain peace by
restoring the Union. - Yes, such people are
held up as having," cowardly deserted" the
Confederacy, and that with the approval of
the head of the existing State government,
for the paper that almost constantly uses
this language enjoys his patronage and con
fidence, and is his organ. Nearly all these
emigrants are persons who were huuted
down during the rebellion, to be carried,
roped or hand-cuftcd, to the Confederate ar
mies ; and in many instances their old fath
ers and mothers, and wives aud little ones
were penned up for weeks to make them tell
where the deserters and conscripts could be
found, while their houses were plundered and
burned and their stuff destroyed. When the
war was over, these people fondly hoped that
they would have a loj'al State government;
thatlhey would be respected for their devo
tion to the Union ; that, as the result of the
new order of things, capital would be
brought into the State to improve and build
it up, and that they would thus become par
takers of the prosperity that would set in
with renewed life on a now basis. Disappoin
ted in this, they are leaving the State in large
numbers. They had no thought of doing
so in 1865, under a loyal administration of
our affairs. They were then respected and
honored as Unionists, and not ridiculed
and bemeaned as they now are, on account
of their principles.
Union people leaving the State from fear
of the Radicals, and going right into the
midst of the Radicals 1 The Sentinel must
try again. Even the little newsboys will
laugh at such a reason for this tide of emi
gration from the State.
Oysters are brought to the Raleigh market,
by several dealers in large quantities, and are
retailed now at $1 25 cents per gallon. At
the opening of the season they were sold at
$2 00. At the Sounds near Wilmington,
and in Calicut, North River, and around
Harkert Island, near Moreheadand Beaufort,
oysters could be cultivated at as little trouble
and cost as anywhere else, and would be
highly remunerative. Some of the More
headians and Wilmingtonians would find it
to their advantage, to engage in this useful
and lucrative business. Nothing is more
simple or certain, and but few callings would
pay better for the small amount of capital
and care that would be requisite to manage
the cultivation in great abundance of this
delicious and nutritive shellfish.
We have never tasted better oysters any
where, than those from North River, near
Bean fort. .

hooves every man, who loves the country, to

are in- the' hand of Jehovah. His people ev
erywhere . should call upon Him.. . Special .
prayer should be made for the President and
for the Congress, that Jehovah may guide
and control them." . ? " '
If poor ' sinners like ourselves could ever
object to prayer by any one for any good pur
pose, we should be inclined to object on the .
present occasion. We remember that the wor
thy Senior : Editor of the Sentinel prayed
fervently for " the Confederacy." He pray
ed especially for Charleston, for Richmond,
for Raleigh, that the Lord would disperse
and destroy the " Vandals," even as the an
gel of death destroyed the host of Sennecha
rib, so that they might never draw nigh to
occupy and desecrate those places, wherein
flourished tender-hearted commandants of
conscripts, delectable " Confederate " restau
rants and drinking houses, well-to-do and
patriotic twenty negro men who did their
lighting by proxy, and pious quartermasters,
and honest, clean-fingered tithing-men and
impressing agents without number. But
there was no answer, save in the guns of
Grant and the tramp of Sherman's host to
the sea. The fervent prayers of our excel
lent and most reverend friend were not an
swered as he hoped they would be. That
which he prayed for fell, and that which he
prayed against triumphed. If so be his
prayers are as efficacious now as they were
then, we beg him to put none of them up for
the United States of America. In the first place,
the country does not stand in special need of
any exercises of the kind on his part; and
in the second place, judging by the result of
his petitions with reference to " the Confed
eracy," they might seriously damage the in
tegrity and permanency of the Union. We
beg him to turn his pious thoughts into some
other channel. The Radicals have brought
the "old 6hip" thus far in safety through the
stormy and bloody breakers of rebellion, and
we think it more than probable that, with
the assistance of Andrew Johnson, the pilot
who stands at the helm, they will moor her
in a secure and tranquil haven.
So far as the Junior is concerned, we fear
his prayer will be like that of the young
man who knelt in Church with the rest of
the congregation, and during an almost in
terminable petition by the good minister,
which began with Adam and ended with
the last falling of the stars, he went to sleep.
The congregation began to disperse, when
he was roused and asked what he was doing.
He replied, that after he had gotten through
with following the minister in his petition
for the congregation, he had been simply
engaged in saying a few words for himself.

We saw recently a communication in the
Journal of Commerce, respecting the correct
printing of the " Athens" of the State. We
beg leave to add a few remarks upon this
subject. The town was laid out and named
by DeGraffenried's colonists from Switzer
land in the year 1710, and was named
after old Berne, meaning bear, Switz
erland, and as was too frequently adopted in
those times the adjective, new, was prefixed,
making New-Berne, "new Scar," or cub,
and the signification is evidently cub-town ;
and from the number of bears in the Poco
8ons in Craven County, was not inappropri
ately designated. And the name may be
written one of two ways correctly, as one
word XTeicberne, or with a hyphen New-Berne.
No other way it appears can be right. Burn
is gaelic for brook, berne with an e, meaning
as aforesaid, " bear" After so much of phil
ological lore upon this thread-fesar dis
cussion we hope that ever hereafter this
beautiful and famous old City will be
spelt and printed with a hyphen, as a com
pound word, but one only in parsing, as the
designation of but oue place, to wit : New
Berne, the Athens of the old North State.
And as she has been heretofore, may she be
in the future the mother of more great men
than any other place in all Southland.
Official Vote of Montgomery.
Though a little late, we publish below the
official vote of Montgomery County. This
vote is highly creditable to the Unionists of
that County. It shows that the fires of pat
riotism are still burning brightly in many
hearts in that portion of the State. The
friend who sends us this vote says : " We are
for the shortest road right back to the Union.
There is no smiting together of the knees of
Union men here. We are all for the Union
for weal or for woe."

We invite attention to the advertisement

nish further information to those who may
apply to him. We have no space for exten
ded remarks, but observe that the Company
is highly recommended by many influential
newspapers. We have no doubt, it is all
which it professes to be. . -
Attention is directed to the advertisem ent

If the public . men o the State who have
control of our affairs would only do as they
should, the testioatti would soon be out of
the way. It is regarded only as a means to
i end. If this State, for example, would
submit unconditionally to the national au
thority would adopt the Howard amend
ment, members of Congress of the same po
litical character with Mr. Pool would no
doubt be admitted to seats without being
required to take this oath. The oath is de
signed to exclude disloyal, not loyal men.
We repeat, let the State show that she is
cheerfully disposed to send only loyal men
to Congress, and this oath would speedily
fall to the ground.
To persons interested in the culture of the
Vine," we will 6tate upon the authority
of Grant, Taylor and Redmond, that the
four best erapes now in cultivation inthe
United States are the Israella (the earliest)

in New-York City, at $1,00 per pound,) and
the latest and best keeping grape of all, a
native of North-Carolina, the Pamlico, be
longing to the Skoupernong family. It is
black, and has as many as thirty, but gener
ally about one dozen berries in a cluster, and
will keep readily until Christmas.
Of the Skoupernong family (vitis rotundi-
folia) there are now four varieties in cultiva
tion, to wit : Flowers, b. Waccamaic, b. Pam
lico, b; and the Skoupernong w. From the
last several seedlings have been produced,
but none of them of superior qualities to the
original, and are not worthy of cultivation
for the present.
