imposing, unless it be the Female,
College, 'which is situated in a grove
of inajesMc oaks, said to have been
an' Indian camping ground.
To this building I strayed one
beautiful morning in May. The
school was di.-inissod at the tirue,
and no sound greeted my oars as
my footstep ech i d through the
deser ed halls and piisMges. A de
lightful b r?z e was stirring, and,
wearied with my rarahies, 1 st tns
down to re.-t lti on-' d" the hoisted
windows. I had J'ot bovn in this
osition long, before hoir:nu$, pity
ing tired i.atcre, came to my relief,
and in a moment I was in the arms
of Morpheus. How long I slum
bered 1 know not, but when I awoke
a p:;ui somevhi't pt tho middle
age, with u face bvaming with kind-
good-will, stood before
lou have heen' viewing
"' l,n ...L-...l
been told that
it is situated on an Indian camp
ground, and as 1 delight in relics of
tho past, 1 would not lose this
opportunity of viewiu the spot. 1
have found nothing, however, that
would remind one of those olden
" Did you ever he.ir the legend
that is connected with this place?
S 11. IS lllitb
hat which has led
I confessed my ignorance of the
story, and Ufged liiia to reUte :t.
After some little hesitation, he seat
ed himself beside me, and I pre
pared to hear the legend of " The
Young Chief of t'e Tuscaroras."
" I)o you see younder rock?" he
commenced. " It is the gravestone
of an Jndiai. chief. The story runs
f " Karramattah, a . beautiful girl
of eighteen, tvas the child of the
Chief of the Cherokees, and idol of
his heart. I say his child, J mean
his adopted child; the Narramattah,
when scarcely more than a babe,
had been taken from the bosom of
her mother, and born away to a
distant land. She had found, how
ever, a loving father in the old
chief who forgot she was a trophy
of victory and regarded her as his
" Few and faint were the memo
ries which she entertained of her
birthplace, and she had learned to
love old Manoah as the father of a
friendless girl. Here was the tent
of old Manoah' aid here the home
of the young Indian girl. Here on
the batiks of this beautiful river,
wild woodsmen went out to the
chase, and returned at nightfall to
the embraces of their lovers. Here
the songs of t iose maidens of the
wild were borne through the woods
by the gentle winds of Indian sum
tner ! and here, in all that barbarity,
was entertained a love of liberty,
and a sense ot Jim or ami integrity,
which in rarely found now
41 But days of sorrow were to
come to Manoah. A youth who
had wooed in vain for the hand of
Xarrumattah had sworn by the
Grent spirit ihat he would usurp
his position. Well did ho fulfil that
vow. Manoah was thrown into pt i
son, and not allowed to go free
until he had sworn obedience to the
new sovereign. The only joy of
tho chief now was his adopted
daughter. She sympathized with
him in his troubles, and adminstered
to his wants.
" As for Narramattah, she was
happy anl carefree. Lovers she
had, but the wooing of all, save one,
had been in vain. This one was a
young chief of the tribe of Tuscar
oras, who came but seldom, and
carried her heart with him when he
went. She sang, laughed and
sported with the Indian maidens,
but her tl. oughts continually ' wan
dered to the young warrior and the
time he w as to cotuo and claim his
bride. But that r aopy time wa-
continually postponed, for old
Manoah declared that he could not
part with the light of his life and
the friend ot his declining years.
At last came Ocomo, a young
warrior of her own tribe, to sue for
her heart and hand. He told the
same old story in his frank, manly
way, and he too met with the 6ame
firm, decided answer, that her heart
was already another's. But he did
not receive the refu.-al, as others
had done, in a transport of rage.
He kissed the ground at her feet,
and told her as he could not be
come her husband, he would at
least remain a faithful and devoted
friend. In the meantime Tuxcar,
tho young usurper, -was pursuing
his conquests, and daily bringing
home Unfortunate prisoners . as
"trophie's of victory.
V"it At eyening Narramattah would
Wtake herself to the riverside, and
dream of the absent one she had
learned to loye. She was generally
hsppyand gsiy,and no one had ever
seen a cloujf on her brow. But one
evening sh sat alone in her favorite
retreat with a troubled loot in her
eyes-' , ,
" It was a dream which boded
no good,' she mused. ' But how
foolish in me! No harm can come
to my' brave lover. But 1 feel as
if somethirg was wrong.'
" Hardly had the words escaped
her lips, when th well-known cry
of her victorious tribe rang out
aE"?B il air Tuxcar had led his
band long way that day, and the
joyous shouts of his warriors told
but too well that he had brought a
large number of captives. Nar
ramattah feli her heart beat high,
and she hehl her breath to listen.
She fancied she heard the name of
the Tuscarora. The blood left her
checks, and she was pale as death
with excitement. Nearer and nearer
they came "until Tuxcar stood be
" k Narramattah,' he cried, 'light
of the moon, I have a captive.
Lock upon him. Did you ever see
him before V
" She grew ghastly pale, and
came near falling to the ground, for
there, bound with cords, stern and
haughty even in captivity, lay the
brave warrior of the Tucaroras.
Tuxcar knew her story, and a smile
of vengeance curled his lips as he
" 'Narramattah, many moon ago
I wooed you, and you thought in
vain. I swore by the Great Spirit
that you should not wed any other
man. I have not forgotten that
vow. Consent to be my wife, and
our lover shall go free: refuse, and
you shall have the pleasure of see
ing hun die before your eyes.
"Narramattah hesitated; but the
Tuscarora's blood began to boil in
his veins, and his face grew black
with wrath. He cast a defiant look
at Tuxcar as if to say. 'Tyrant, do
your worst !' Then looking at the
fawulike Narramattah, he said,
" 'Narramattah, if you love me,
remember yoar vow. Let me die a
thousand deaths, rather than you
should become the wife of a brute.'
" The Indian maiden burst into
tears, bat not a taarkof pity soften
ed the iron features of the marble
hearted tyrant. Tuxcar stood

Should Society look upon Manual Pur
suits as Degrading.
In this era of progress, forget
ting for the while polities snd af
fairs governmental, there is bein
wrought a gradual change in
Southern Society worthy of
note. For many years. Derhans
rom the date of the rettlement of
the South, its society has frowned !
upon those pursuits requiring man-!
ual labor and the class or men en
gaged in them men noted alike
or their genuiue worth both in the
private and public walks of life,
and for the conspicuous part they
have borne in the development of
tne country. History and. expert 1
ence have shown the adverse effect !
of such a verdict upon society itself, 1
morals and civilization." . !
contempt which men of
affluence and position have for cen-
tunes past entertained for manual
pursuits is one of the most detri-
mented relics of old and antiquated
aristocratic prejudices, which, since
their existence, have done Dara
mount injury to the southern branch
of American Society. It has di
rectly disparaged us of the South
by instilling into the minds of our
youth, by nature ardent and chiv
alrous, the rather deluded notions
of trans-atlantic nobility, a nobility
accustomed from time almost im
memorial to rear up its offspring to
ieapise the vocations and persuits
which partake of toil, and to regard
them as suitable for the lower
stages of society only. With a
precedent established by the polite
element of a kingdom so celebrated
and renowned as England is for its
eminent men, its learning, wealth
and power, naturally enough the
young Southerner, born of wealthy
and innu ntial parentage, covets
such social distinctions, and hence
many sons of the thirteen Sisters
allow themselves to be persuaded
by the influence of a delusion hand
ed down from father to son, so
groundless of reason in the eyes of
It is as much to be regretted that
Southern society ever entertained
such erroneous ideas as it is truly
gratifying to perceive the reforma
tion introduced by the mneteeth
century. The writer will be par
doned tor saying that the South
first profited from the example of
the Northern States in this regard.
They long ago discovered the evil
which such sentiment3 brought to
oear on society, and have ceased te
countenance it. Their doors are
not barred against the humble and
unassuming craftsman of educated
mechanism, nor the unsophisticated
and practical agriculturist. Can
this be said of the South ? But to
return, the late disastrous civil war
pointedly effected a new phase of
affairs in southern circles. Pnur to
this event our people were a people
of great wealth, possessing multi
tudes of slaves in an abundance
over sufficient to meet , the demands
of those employments requiring
manual labor, agricultural or me
chanical. This caused as undoubt
edly to look upon such occupations,
and to regard young men, merito
rious and deserving, who followed
them in a status with the negro.
This disposition, unjust as it then
was and humiliating as it is to the
South to-day, had a peruasive, we
might say compulsory, tendency to
induce young men, when about to
enter the arena of life to look for
they were " aristocratically " but
unwisely and unfortunately denom
inated. The effects of this disposi
tion have not yet disappeared.
Why is it that we experience such a
great difficulty in inducing the tide
of emigration from Europe to come
Southward? Why is it that the
Irish laborer when invited to the
cotton fields of North Carolina,
of the Southern States, tells you
that he is afraid of being classified
socially with the negro? Manifold
instances cou'd be cited in which it
has acted to our detriment. Hence
occupations of this" nature were
seldom filled by young men of any
stamina, and in this light did they
regard them till the close of the
war. The circumstances of men
are often altered materially in the
revolution of time. .At the period
above alluded to, gentlemen, who
had hitherto enjoyed the posses
sions of vast estates, were by the
devastation following civil struggles
thrown upon their own individual
exertions for the necessities of life,
consequently in order to buy their
butcher's meat, they were driven
into some menial occupations they
were reared up and taught to de
spise. Now society was willing, or
rather, was forced to" realize the
evil influence of an opposition to
manual pursuits, and , then it is to
be hoped a new era of, piosperity
dawned upon us and the South. T
Having thus premised our views,
it seems - that it, clearly behooves
Southern society of Southern prin
ciples, " Southern men of Southern
principle", to recognise the practi
cal followers of agriculture and the
trades. Our boys ro becoming
sensible enough to learn them
and to engage in them, and why
should they, not be encouraged?
Surely they do not merit the ostro-
;cism of polite circles. The experi-
eDce of the past has induced many
; to enter the field of mechanism,
which is always open, never in dan
ger of being crowded, and will here
after be bb lucrative and honorable
as any occupation, so long as this
republic continues to be the mistress
of nations in point of wealth and
sideration of respectability on the
prospeiiiy. in .advocating a con
part of Southern society for the
man of manual pursuits, he should
be reminded that the vital question
with him is education. He should
be educated and he 'should educate
his children, and he is less excusa
ble now Tor its '.neglect, than form
at he .benevolence of
nd" Peabbdy. together
with . l.he
public school system,
education at his elbow
and those of" hi
done this, we fail o know any ne
cessary obstable to genuine society.
That clas.s of young men for
tunate enongh to have the means at
their control to acquire finished ed
ducation invariably choose vhe
professions. These professions are
useful in themselves and in their
proper spheres, but are to day filled
to their utmost capacity, and it is a
matter, of difficulty that the junior
members of them can obtain a live
lihood. On the other hand were
they among educated laborers, it
would be found a lucrative business
in the outstarr without being under
the necessity of waiting till middle
life for success. It is a fact of com
mon occurrence that North Caroli
na sends abroad for educated labor,
for engineers, architects, machinists,
aud if a census were taken of that
class of ccen engaged in the South
in surveying roail roads, ia con
structing fine buildings, in conduc
ting the machinery of various work
shops, it culd be safely asserted
that 75 per cent, would be found
foreigners. It is time our southland
should be built up and developed
by southern hand- ; that rail roads
and factories should be built, and
that by southern men. In order to
successfully accomplish this, young
men must learn tne trades ana De
practicaly educated. It requires
no ordinary talent to become a good
mechinist or architect as they bring
into practice the various sciences
and artB, and education is tho lever
As above said the signs of the
times indicate a change. Long
have these prejudices had the order
of the day, and many a fine me
chanical genius has been loot behind
a grocer's counter, because that was
considered the more honorable em
ployment. These prejudices, so
foreign to us by nature, are fast
wearing away, and it should be an
encouraging circumstance to all
who entertain a regard for southern
youth to know that the respect for
labor is on the increase. We re
member that, not long ago, it was
a hard thing for mechanics to re
spect . themselves when all those
around them denied them respect.
Their vocation was looked upon as
degrading which had no mean effect
towards , degrading those foU
lowing it. But this social heresy
which has so long pervaded South
ern society has exploded, and every
community is learning to respect
and encourage mechanics those
who couduct themselves as all good
citizens should. It is important
then for our young men to be taught
that labor is honorable. Let them
then select sonic agricultural, me
chanical, or other pursuit of labor,
and by industry honor their posi
tion. Let them do so, not only as
a duty, but let them be stimulated
because it is a privilege, a high and
honorable one, a privilege which
elevates man without injury to hi-
fellow man. Young men should
then do away with the idea of some
thing low in manual labor. They
should engage in agriculture or me
chanical pursuits, and by upright
lives, go forth into the world and
prove in what consists true man
hood. Let them do this, and socie
ty will honor them, and their chil
dren will rise up and calT'them
- Dr. Livingstone.
Thei great 'African traveller,
Livingstone, has several times been
reported dead and buried " beyond
a shadow ot U 'Ubt by the varnu-
iournals of the world. But some
how De won t stay dead. He comes
to life when we least expect it, and
splashes his way toward the sources
of the Nile. The English papers
in their reoent announcement of his
death, said that it is true beyond all
peradventtire, and the world accep
ted it as a mournful fact. But his
father-in law. Rev. Robert Moffat t,
missionary to South Africa, appears
upon the scene, and revive doubt
by arving.that he does not believe
that Dr. "Livingstone is dead, in
asmucii as it would have taken him
a moch longer ; time tnan August
15th, to have reached the place
where he is ri'prttr o have- died,
that being the date, at which his
death is said to have occured. .The

Purity of Character.
Henry Waud Beecher draws the
following beautiful parallel :
" Over the beauty of tho plum
and apricot there grows a bloom
and beauty more exquisite than the
fruit itself; a soft delicate flesh .
thate" verspreads its blushing cheek.
Now if you strike your hand over
that, and it is once gone, it is gone
forever, for. it never grows but once.
The flower that hangs in the morn
ing, impearled with dew arrayed
with jewels once shake it, so that
tho beads roll off, and JOtt may
sprinkle water over it a3 you please,
yet it can jnever be made again
what it was when the dews fell -lightly
upon it from heaven On a ,
f rosty morning yon may see the
panes of glasa covered' with lands
capes, mountains, lakes and trees,
blended into a beautiful fantastic
picture. Now lay your hands upon
the glass, and by the scratch of
your finger or by the warmth of the
palm ail the delicate tracery will be
obliterated.; So there is in youth
a beauty and purity of character
which when once touched and defil
ed can never be restored; a fringe
more delicate-than frostwork, and
which when torn and broken will
never be resembroided. A man who
has spotted and coiled his garments
in his youth, though he may seek to
make them white again, can never
wholly do it, even were he to wash
them with his tears. When a young
man leaves his father's house with
the blessing of Ins mother's tear3
still wet upon his forehead if he
once loses that early purity of
character it is a loss that he can
never make whole again. Such is
the consequence of crime. Its
effect cannot be eradicated, it can
only be forgiven."
The proper measure of heat for
cold weather, says Dr. W. AY.
Hall, i3 about sixty-five degrees,
Fahrenheit, at a height of about
four feet above the floor. At the
close of the services of the day, all
the windows and doors should be
opened, and kept open for two or
three hours, so that the draughts
of air passing through the building
may carry with them, out of doors,
the immense amount of human
emanations and other jmpuritioa .-
which are held in the air of any
public building, after its occupancy.
If this is not done, these odors
solidify in part, and dry on the
walls and glass and wood work, to
be re-converted into fumes when
the fires are next kindled, and to
be re-breathed. It is a great mis
take to suppose that it is sufficient
if the house is ventilated without
heat during the week, or just be
fore warming up again for the next
meeting, for the reason just named.
In the common churches in the
country, in winter time, good fires
ought to be lighted on Saturday
afternoon, and kept up until rervice
next day, in order to get rid of the
dampness and closeness observed in
al! unoccupied buildings. In - city
churches, which are larger, fires
are kindled, in very cold weather,
on Fridays, and are kept burning
until the Sabbath service.
Congress and the Liquor
Traffic. Congress has taken the
inniatory step to investigate the
results of the traffic in liquor.
Hardly a day passed since the
session opened on which there have
not been presented in the Senate
one or more petitions urging gov
ernment investigation in the matter.
These petitions have come from all
parts of the country, and have
been signed by c ergymen, by State,
national and local temperance or
ganizetions, and by thousands of
other respectable citizens. A reso
lution appointing a committee to
investigate the subject was briefly
discussed in the Senate on Thurs
day and Friday of last week. Sen
ator Schruz opposed it, in a vigorous
little speech, iu which he advocated
the German pi in for supressing in
temperance; that is encouraging
amusements in which whole families
join, and discouraging those in
which men alone take part. Senator
Bayard combated the subject on
constitutional grounds. Very little
interest has thus far been manifest
ed in the subject, and the prob
abilty of its success is very doubt
ful. A man who had receutly been
elected a major of militia, and who
was not overburdened with brains,
took it into his head on tbe morn
ing o( parade, to exercise a little by
himself. The field select, d for this
purpose was his own apar-ment.
Placing himself in a military atti
tude, with his sword drawn, he ex
claimed : " Attention, company !
Rear rank, three paces, march!"
and he tumbled down into the cellar.
His wife hearing the racket, came
running in, saying, My dear,
