Raleigh Sentinel: On Wednesday
sight at about 10 o'clock the jail at
Louisburg was discovered to be on
fire. In spite ol every exertion the
jail was consumed and three of the
prisoners. . One of the windows was
cut and two of the prisoners were
saved, one of them being nearly
eufficated. Two of the three who
were burned to death wer confined in
one of the lower rooms, and set fire to
the prison, the result being destructive
to themselves and one other as stated.

Racing and Horse-Breeding.
. Mit. Editor: What has become of our
Tar River Jockey Club V Is it not time
that they were advertising their Spring
races., or has it gone the way of all other j
ttigecomlie enterprises ? e are certainly
in need of such a Club and, if only per
severed in for a few years, it would be the
means of greatly improving the horses of
Edgecombe and Eastern North Carolina.
It has long been considered that the only
way in which the horse can be developed
through successive stages of improvement
to comparative perfection is by testing his
spee l for prizes, regularly offered to the
produce of each vear. In this way only
can the flower of the year le known after
which, by breeding the best to the best suc
cessively, a certain improved developement
can be secured. This has leen the prac
tice from the time of the ' Arab ' down to
the days of the Godolphin Arabian and his
descendants through brilliant genealogy
which dazzles us with such names as those
of Flying Childers, Eclips, Beeswings,
Plempo and American Eelips. All of
these, and indeed every sound race horse of
average merit in cither England or Ameri
ca, are far in advance in the way of speed
to any horse the "Arab," ever owned.
And yet the seeds of the " Arabs " were
the ancestors of the race horse of the pres
ent day. It was the racing for prizes
during this long jeriod of generations
wnicn enaoied us to constantly improve
the fountain by breeding only from the
winners and so distinctly is this known to
be the fact that it may Ijc declared as in
disputable that but for racing and race
courses the present paragon of animals,
known in England and America as the
thorough-bred horse, would lc uncreated.
Nay more the value of such an unregcnerr
ated stock as would have been left to our
agriculture fcnd our labor without his help
would how an inferiority in the way of
want of usefulness of full one half.
If the practice of racing therefore, insti
tuted by the earliest nations and continued
by the most civilized modern States, shall
have resulted in all this lenefit, there is
not only no reason why horse racing should
not be patronizad by "all the wholesome
forces of society but every reason why it
should be stimulated and encouraged. In
fact it always has lcen patronized in all
civilized countries, and by the lxst classes
of Society except for a while by a certain
class of religious " good society " in the
North Eastern part of the United States.
" This class of Society Avas the descendants
of the pilgrim fathers who hated the cava
liers, with whom horse racing was a favor
ite sjwrt, and bequeathed to New England
the idea that the horse of speed was almost
an ungodly creature." Happily that prej
udice is so far worn off that even New
England clergymen now indite horse books
and the modest maidens of that moral re
gion are glad to lend the inspiration of
their beauty to the Tournaments of those
noble,honest creatures, which in themselves
represent the very greatest of Gods kind
nesses to man.
Now Edgecombe stock of horses cer
tainly needs improving, and it remains for
you gentlemen of the Tar River Jockey
Club to do it, and allow me to suggest the
following for your consideration : that you
open a sweep-stake of $10 Club, adding
$100 for 3 year old, to be run for in the
spring of each year, requirhig the colts to
lie entered when yearlings.
Hoping tliat your future meeting may
continue to increase in attendance.

The consolidated Enquirer-Southerner

papers were lioth amongest the best
weekly papers in the State, and we
may reasonably expect that the industry
and ability which built up the Enquirer so
speedily will under the improved auspices
of the consolidation secure a better paper
than either of the seperate originals.
A New Book. Mr. Jas. II. Enniss, of
Raleigh, has now in press and hopes soon
to present to the public, a farm Book, for
the use of Justices, County officers, Admin
istrators, Executors, Guardians and busi
ness men generally. The book is prepared
by Quent. Busbce, Esq., for which pur
pose perhaps a better lawyer could not be-

powers of attorney, mortgages, wills and
in short all the legal forms in common use
in occordance with our laws.

the following from the Raleigh News.
The above is the name of a new fertil
izer, a four-column advertisement of which
will be found in the News this morning.
From what we know personally of Col.
Wm. R. Griffith, the General Manager of
the Company, and from the high reputa
tion of the Professors that have analyzed
the Guanahani, we have no hesitation in
endorsing both the Company and the ferti
lizer. The following letter from Prof.

Raleigh, N. C, Jan 7, 1874.
Wm. R. Griffith, Esg.,
General Agent Guanahani
Dear Sir : Doctor F. A. Genth, whose
analysis of the Guanahani Guanno you
have shown me is Chemical Minerologist to
the Geolical Survey and has no superior as
a Chemist. I have no hesitation in endors
ing any analysis from his laboratory. And
I think the analysis justifies his statement
that the substance examined by him is a
From his report and that of Prof Wilson,
it is evidently a true Gcaso, both in
origin and composition, and its action on
crops siv be expected to be the same in
kind and in degree proportioned to its rela
tive per centage of the valuable ingredients.
Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia and Potash,
that of the first being unusually high.
W. C. Kerr,
We copy the following concerning this
new fertilizer from the editorial columns of
the Petersburg Daily News of the 3rd inst :
. "The Guanahani Guano. At such a
time as the present, when economy is im
perative among all classes and in every
department of life, the merits of the
"Guanahani Guano," advertised in our
columns this morning, cannot fail to attract
the instant attention of farmers in all parts
of the country. Not only does it cost
nearly one-third less than the l)est known
fertilizers now in use, but it is specially
worthyof note that where tried by practical
farmers along side of these, it has produced
results always equally as good, and in not
a few instances even better. As regards
its constituent parts, the analyses of two of
the most eminent chemists in this country,
both well known to all dealers in guano, go
to prove that this guano possesses elements
in combination distinctly superior to any
single fertilizer now in the market.
Owing to the high price of pure Chincha
Island guano, farmers, to our own know
ledge, have been compelled largely to
manipulate their own feroilizers, but the
comparative cheap ness of the " Guanahani"
at once renders this unnecessary. Am
monia from nitric acid (nitrate ammonia)
is, as is well known, the most available
form of nitrogen known to agricultural
chemistry, and this is possessed by this
fertilizer, as will le seen froia the analysis,
to a very noteworthy degree. The other
form of nitrogen in it seems due to the
decomposition of animal matter, superior
to the volatile salts of ammonia to le found
to Peruvian guano.
Its pho8phatic qualities are largely over
and above anything to be found in man
ipulated guanas, and these qualities, let it
be specially ol (served, are all soluble in the
soil. This guano also contains a large
amoimt of potash and soda, such as is com
monly found in the best manipulated ferti
lizers, but over and alxve that, magnesia
and other ingredients which enter into
plant construction, and which cannot be
found in themanipulated article.
But the point specially worthy of the
attention of the farmers in this section, and
indeed throughout the whole South, where
lands have been cropped for twenty-five or
thirty years without sewing grasses, there
by exhausting the necessary supply of
vegetable mould, is the great humus power
in this guano, resulting from its being unde
comnosetl matter, which on becoming de
composed furnishes the necessary humus,
and produces results commensurate with
"Those which arise from sowing grasses ;
such as absorbing moisture from the atmos
phere, carbonic acid and ammonia, supply
ing the plant with moisture during time of
We have spoken thus at length of this
guano because we deem it our duty to draw
the special attention of our many readers in
the country to a first-rate fertlizer which
can be purchased at a comparatively small
price. And furthermore, because it bids
fair to redound greatly to the commercial
interests of Petersburg.
The Guanahani Company is managed
entirely by our own citizens, and among
its officers are to be found men of business,
whose names are synonymous with spotless
integrity and commercial success. It is
hard to estimate the amoimt of money
which the establishment of such a company
must bring to our city, but it is scarcely too
much to say that had it been in operation
during the past year, between five and six
hundred thousand dollars would have been
kept at home.
The General Agent of the Company is
Col. W. R. Griffith, formerly of Balti
more, a gentleman as well known by the
success in this special trade, as he is to all
by his energy and business capacity.
We wish the nw Company unbounded
success, and what is more we l(elieve they
will win it."

mostly from the country, united themselves

DIED SUDDENLY OF HEART DISEASE.
How common is the anonneement. Thous
ands are suddenly swept in to eternity by
this tatai malady. This disease generally
has its orgin in impure blood, tilled with
irritating, poisonous materials, which, circul
ating through the heart, irritate its delicate
tissues. Though the irritation may at first
be slight, producing a little palpitation or
irregular action, yet by and by the disease
becomes firmly seated, and inflammation.
or hypertrophy, or thickening of the lining
memorane, or or the valves, is produced.
How wise to giv early attention to a case of
this kind. Unnatnrai throbbing or pain iu
the region of the heaat shouid admonish one
that all in not riht, and if you would pre
serve it from farther disease, yon must help
it,to beat rightly by the use of such a remedy
s shMl remove the cause of the trouble.
Use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
