Charlotte Democrat : We learn that
last week two negros followed a wag
oner out of town and robbed him of
842. He had sold a load of apples in
the city and when about three miles
from here, on the Davidson College
road, the negroes overtook him and
told him that he had lost some of his
money. To convince them that he
had not lost anything he took out his
money to count it when they grabbed
it and ran off.

justice. Latee. Just as we go to

Webster, confirming the report of the

the proof is positive against the parties

Astounding. The Cashier of the Bank
of New Hanover informs us, that since the
1st of December, 1873, to the present time,
over $20,000 has passed through his bank
in payment for mules bought in this coun
ty. If this is taken in connection with the
amount that is expended and does not pass
through the bank, we may safely calculate
that the amount annually expended by
Edgecombe for mules will approximate 60
or 70 thousand dollars.
Delay Not. We hope it will not be
an offence to an-, for it is not because we
believe the money will not in many in
stances be eventually paid that we decline
to put down credit names, but the accumu
lation of numberless Kttle accounts. We
therefore must reject subscriptions unac
companied by the cash, unless where the
subscriber is personally known to us, and
in that case he must expect to pay $2.50,

Blind Jim. We have frequently heard
the inquiry from many of our citizens,
"where is Blind Jim, nowadays?" We
have found him. The Wilmington Star of
Sunday haa the following: "Blind Jim,"
the colored mendicant who has been indus
triously canvassing the city for about six
months, with a placard on his breast bear
ing the inscription, "Help the Blind," was
picked up on the streets yesterday in an in
toxicated condition, by a member of the
IK)lice force, and will probably be sent out
of the city. He hails from Raleigh.
Needed Reform. The recent indispo
sition of our Probate Judge has brought to
the attention of the legal profession arc in
soluble dilema. It being admitted as a
fact that no judicial powers can be delega
ted to another, and hence the impossibility
of having a deputy to do the duties of the
Probate Judge, the question arises, who is
there to take the probate of the mortgage
during the sickness of the Probage Judge ?
His deputy can not take it, nor can it be
taken in another county and registered in
the county where the land is without his
This matter is often one of momentous
importance to business men, and should de
mand the attentive consideration of our
law-makers. It might be the case, that by
the sickness of a Probate Judge, and there
being no one to perform his duties in the
interim, thousands of dollars might tie in
jeopardy by the failure to havea deed reg
istered. The County News. O how the county

entire community into a state of fevered

in a few weeks and the school will be re

worthy of general patronage. The appro

co-operation to render the hour we devote
to the public a pleasant one.
If it will meet with your convenience, I

address. Very respectfully,

Sixty Thousand Dollars Wanted.
In December, 1872, the Grand Iiodgeoi
Masons ordered the opening of an Asylum,
at Oxford, for the protection, training and
education of indigent and promising Or
phans. Several weeks were occupied with
necessary preparations, and, iu February,
1873, the work began. Some fore-saw
nothing but failure, aud predicted that
spontaneous donations would not sustain
such an institution. Others determined
that so far as its success depended on then1,
their whole duty should be performed.
Lodges, Chinches, Benevolent Societies
and liberal individuals have supported it by
their voluntary contributions, and many
helpless Orphans have been placed where
wholesome food, comfortable colthmg and
faithful instruction will make them intel
ligent and useful citizens. The laws of
the land afford but little protection to Or
phans, and the hard liand of avarice often
holds them in sad and shameful slavery.
Legislators disregard their appeals. Or- I
phans cannot vote, their fathers are all
dead, and the rich seldom espouse the
cause of their poor relations. Careful ob
servation has shown that, by close econo
my, each Orphan may be fed, clothed and
taug-ht for five dollars a month. In order
that different sections of the State may be
represented, and that the most nrgent and
most needy applicants may be admitted.
about two hundred Orphans should be kept
in the Asylum. Their expenses will
amount to twelve thousand dollars. To
the ensure permanence of the institution
and the continuance of, its work, there
ought to be some provision for its support
for at least five years. If sixty Ixwges,
Churches, Benevolent Societies or in
dividuals, will each pay one hundred dol
lars every year, for five years; if seventy
if seventy Lodges, Churches, Benevolent
Societies, or individuals, will each pay nrtv
dollars every year, for five years; and if
one hundred Lodges, Churches, Benevoient
Societies, or individuals, will each pay
twenty-five dollars, every year for five
years, the people will then appreciate the
value of the work, and in some way make
it permanent. Thus, for, food, clothing
and instruction, twelve thousand dollars a
year may be raised, and smaller contribu
tions will supply furniture and fixtures.
Will the friends of Orphans raise this
amount ? The question is now before
Direct contributions are earnestly solici
ted. No countenance should be given to
those who wish to grind their axes at the
expense of the Orphans,, neither should
public attention be diverted by new schemes
for raising money out of others. When
people feel for Orphans, they should feel
in their own pockets, and contribute as the
Lord has prospered them. Contributions
for this year, and pledges for future pears
should be sent to the Superintendent, at
Oxford. John Nichols,

SUCCESS BASED UPON MERIT.
It is a subject of general remark, among
both wholesale and retail drngcists, that no
medicine introduced to the American public
has ever gained such a popularity and met
with so large ajsale in all prrts of the laud,
in the same length of time, as Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. Tuis cannot
depend upon its having been more lergely
advertised than any other medicine, as such
is not the case. The corect explanation, we
think, is found in the fact that this medicine
produces the most wonderlul aud perfect
cures of very bad cases of bronchial, throat
and Inns; diseases is undoubtedly the most
perfect and efficiett remeey for all kinds of
coughs that has ever been introduced to the
public, anc at the same time possesses the
greatest of Moon-purifying and strengthen
ing properties tnat medical science has been
able to produce, thus rendering it a sovereign
remedy not only in the cure of Consumption,
Bronchitis. Hoarseness and Coughs, but
also for all diseases of the liver and blood
as scrofulous diseases, blotches, rough skin
Dimoles. black soecks and discolorations. It
has therefore a wide range of application
and usefulness, and it not only gives the
most perfect satisfaction to all who use it.
but far exceeds the expectations of the most
sanguine, thus eliciting the loudest praise,
and making permanent living advertising
mediums of all who use it.

GUIS' PATENT SLATE ROOFING FAINT
Agents Wanted in every Town i
A roof may be covered with a very cheap shingle, and by application of this slate be
made to last from 20 to 25 years. Old roofs can be patched and coated, looking much
better, and lasting longer than new shingles without the slate, for
One-Third the Cost of Re-Shingling.
The exrense of slating new shinales is only about the cost of simply laying them. The
Paint is FIRE-PROOF againsL sparks or flyine embers, as may be easily tested by any
one, and appears trom the fact that Insurance Co's make nearly the
Same Tariff as for Slated Roofs.
For tin and iron it has no equal, as it expands by heat, contracts by cold, an l neier
crael nor scales. For fences it is particularly adapted, as it will not corrode in the most
i eyposed places. Roots covered with Tar Sheathing Felt can be made water-tight at a
I small er.pen-e. The Slate Paint is
Extremely Cheap !
Two gallons will cover a hundred square feet of shingle roof, or over four hundred of tin
or iron. Price ready for use is 80 cents per gallon, u itli a liberal discount lo the trade.
No Tar is used in this Composition,
Therefore it does not affect the water from the roof, if turned off from the fi's! few rains
On decayed shiimles it fills up the holes and pores, hardens them ami eives a new sub
stantial roof that will last for years. Curled or warped shinales it brings to their place
and keeps them there. It fills up all holes in Tin or Felt roofs, and STOPS THE LEAKS,
one coal being equal to five of ordinary paint.
The color of the slate when first applied is dark purple, changing in about a month to a
light uniform siate odor, and it is
To all intents and purposes, Slate.
The Paint has a very body, but is easily put on, and although a slow dryer, rain will not
affect it in the least one hour after applying.
Roofs examined, estimates given, and when required will be thoroughly repaired. Or
ders respectfully solicited.
