"Tim Twaddle" has been received and
will be published, if desired, as soon as
the author sends his name.
Communications on all subjects, in
Btrcetive or amusing, will be published
if not too personal, and if accompanied
by the author's name. This last must
be particularly attended to, as we sh ili
require it in every case. The name will
be a secret with us, of coarse.
We publish to-day the Address and
Proc. edincrs of th. Democratic National
Committee. The first move in the great
political game of '52 Ins ham made.
The day of meeting, for the selection of
President, nas been appointed. We say
selection of President, because we think
the sgn3 of the times warrant such an
assertion. The Democratic Party have
now in office more than five-sixths of the
Governors of the States, majorities in
m on- than five-sixths of the Legislatures
and immense majorities in both Houses
f Congress. The Convention then be
comes the field, on which the friends of
the respective aspirants will have to set
tle their own personal wishes, and the
topes of their champions.
Several papers have declared their
preferences. These, however, can be
nothing more than the predilections of
th-jr editors, and of course, produce lit
tle or no effect. The Convention will
nominate, after a deliberate estimate of
the claims of each, unbiassed by the per
sonal wishes of its members, or the prai
se or censures of others. Flags down,
hands off, we consider much the better
policy until after the nomination we
shall act accordingly. To the nominee,
Ve tender our most energetic support.

On Monday last, the schools of our
village were re-oncned ; and as we are
desirous of making a few remarks on
their present state and future prospects,
we select this as a very suitable time.
It is wjII known to every one, that
ii3 schools of a village, such as Tarboro'
should sustain, exert over its condition a
reat imiuence simply through the ex
penditures of the students, which, though
small in each individual case, amount in
Louis NAPOLEON Bonaparte.
"Incidents ought not to govern poli
cy, buVpolicy, incidents," so spake Napoleon.
Time and events have clearly proved
the aggregate to an immense lund a
uud sufficient, by its continuation or
withdrawal seriously to affect the very
valuation of its property. This is evi
dent from the many villages in our
State, the prosperity or flouri.-hing con
dition of which, is sustained by their
schools. If, however, the influence of
schools extended not beyond the corpor-
tion limits of villages, we would have-
to appeal directly to the county pride
of our citizens to support them. But
this is not the case, for the counties,
whose villages prosper most dircctly
through the influence of their schools,
arc generally poorly productive, yet by
the increased demand caused by the
general prosperity and increased popu
lation of their villages, their scanty pro
ductions, from the higher price such de
mand creates, supply the place of our
The above remarks were sng-restcdi
by the information that a large number
f pupils are now regularly sent from
Edgecombe to distant schools. To the
days attention each year, to the exam
inations and the course of "instruction,
and we feel confident that, though the
numbers may be small, the benefits de
rived to the pupils will be equal to any
in the State. This is not mere puffing,
the opinions are formed from a long ac
quaintance with the teachers. Rev. T.
R. Owen and lady, proprietors of the
Female Academy have 'reputations as
high, and as deservedly so, as any teach
ers in the State ; and Mr. Robt. Win
borne, though young, has already estab
lished a fine reputation as a disciplina
rian. The buildings for count) school?
are tolerablv comfortable, and could b
made very much so, by a slight expen
diture. Indeed the schools, if the trus
tees do their duty, are, though not so
large, as comparatively productive of
good scholarship as any in the State.
And can boast many extraneous advan
tages over schools generally.
We think of sending to Barnum, in
a few days, a copy of The Southerner
a paper, without a single mercantile ad
vertisemcnt, published in a village con
taining about a dozen stores will not

take it on? There will then be two

caught up the words of the poet :
0h! huntsman wi id that horn again,
Fr i. e'er lid ih listening air.
Upon its lambent bosom bear
So wild, so s ft, so sweet a 6train."
Snickcm, Joe Sweeny, Kate, Jenny,
Henry, Echo, Chorus, and Longfellow
answered the summons, filling the gam
ut with their varied intonations. The
clatter of hoof3, an occasional blast from
the horn, the shrill hark of the hunts
man, the voice of the pack, all together
disturbed the morning nap of Tarboro's
lazy denizens, and foxes, fox-hunters,
and hounds, came in for a full share of
hard hits. Forth went the huntsmen.
There was Harry Ilardface, mounted up
