the rapid road to ennui when, thank the
stars ! a rumble was heard on Main street,
and it was soon ascertained that a negro
and a couple of mules had taken compas
sion on the public and gotten up a small
size run-away. ATI was joyful excitement
for a moment, but it was soon dispelled,
for in a most incredibly short time coffee
was seen calmly driving his team sans

nvGEXE Our Constable seems to Ije
really in earnest about keeping the street
gutters open, and we hear has done so
with but little expense, but there are other
duties that require his peculiar attention
at this season of the j-car. ne should see
that not only the streets were kept clear
of trash and filth, but that private lots
were not permitted to effect the health of
the public. If the hygenic ordinances of
the town were always rigorously inforced
a large proportion of sickness might be
prevented. Citizens should not object to
an inspection of their premies, but do all
in their power towards the furtherance of
the health regulations. Clean up all the
rubbish accumulated during the winter and
use lime freelj'. Remember an ounce of
preventive is worth a pound of cure. ?

New Organ. We take pleasure in di
recting the attention of those contemplating
purchasing an organ to the new instrument
recently purchased by the Presbyterian
church of this place. The great desidera
tum of an organ is the combination of
volumn with sweetness f sound, that the
room may be filled and yet that it may not
grate harshly upon the ear. We think
these two qualities happily meet in the
New Ilayen 'instrument, being of a pecu
liarly' sweet tone and rich and full in vol
umn. The mechanical work upon the in
stalment seems to be of the best quality,
which, taken in connection with musical
merit, renders it one of the cheapest organs
before the public. ' J 5 t - J

Tire fcn.MixiTox and Weldos Rail
lioxo a recent issue of the New York
South the following notice c;f this road
was published :
The Wilmington and Weldon Rail Road
from Wilnltogton to Weldon is 163 miles
long.' The country through which this
road passes is a level pine region. It has
been described as a country of " intermina
ble pine forests, dotted with swamps, and
traversed by numerous streams, all running
coastward." On this road you cross the
Neuse River, at Goldsboro, the lar River,
at Rocky Mflunt, and the Roanoke River,
at Wnldnn Tt is a Brent mistake that peo
ple make in Wpposing that there is little
business done on this line, except the gath
ering of turpentine and manufacturing of
tar. This roSwi passes through the best
cotton sections of the State. On all sides
of the road for miles distant one cannot
bat lobserve signs of great prosperity.
Comfortable dwelling houses, and even
some very handsome villas, meet the eye.
A few manufactories are earned on ; a
large cotton factory at Rocky Mount. Im
migrants are ling located on the road,
one colony at Camera, and we understand
from Col. Brink, who has located the colo
ny, that all arc well pleased. There are
any amount of good lands uncleared on
this route. This road connects at Weldon
with the Northern bound trains on the Sea
board & Roanoke Railroad, and Richmond
& Petersburg Railroad, at Wilmington with
Southern bound trains on the Wilmington,
Columbia & Augusta Railroad. This line
is known as tbe Great Atlantic Coast Line.

Fire. It is said that fires never come
singly in our midst. That there seems to
be a sympathy that prevents isolated in
stances. Whatever be the cause, sympa
thy, coincidence or what not, it does seem
to be true that we never have one fire w ith
out another following very close upon its
heels. Thus we had a fire at Mr. Sizer's
on Monday week and its consort came
night before last.
At 3 o'clock Thursday morning, the hour
when (we, should suppose) the baby had
ceased squalling and parents were dream
ing of blessings upon Mrs. Winslow, at
at least, the hour when (the Doctors say)
the physical frame is weakest and should
not be disturbed, the lusty tones of our
watchmen and the rapid ringing of the
Court House bell, peeling the alarm of
fire, aroused the dreaming community of
Tarboro to the fact there was danger of
their " roasting like a herring " unless they
speedily vacated their beds and ran to the
rescue. Fearing roasting more than bad
colds there was soon collected a huge and
varigated assembly, in costumes that
would rival the military squadron of the
redoubtable Falstaff, hatless, bootless and
coatless, and all hallooing and shouting
"Fire," with imminent danger of bursting
those "cyhndrical, cartilaginous and mem
branous tubes, on the median line, before
the vertibral column, and extending from
the inferior part of the larynx to the third
dorsal vertebra," called the treat-hear, or,
vulgarly, the windpipes.
The fire was discovered to be a small
store room belonging to Messrs. E. G.
Hales & Co., on the opposite side of the
river, and was so far gone before the crowd
assembled that it was impossible to save
it or its contents, a barrel or two of pork,
a little flour and some molasses. The prop
erty was fully insured. Origin of the fire
For the Enquirer-Southerner.
Gardner's Fire Extinguisher.
Baltimore, Md., April 18th, 1974.
Editor Enquirer-Southerner :
He is a poor man indeed who will not
protect his own child and as you have seen
fit to stigmatize one of my children as un
fit for anything save "scrap brass," I hope
you will allow me space in your columns
to defend the urchin, l he " tiaraner a ire
Extinguisher " as it is now made was in
vented by your humble servant, and in tliis
city, by the report of the Chief Engineer, it
has proved itself a valuable auxiliary to
his department. According to the reports
of the Engineers of this city over thirty
fires were put out during 1873 with the
Gardner, two of which were carried on
each Hook and Ladder Truck. The small
machines your town has are only intended
for incipient fires, and if they are properly
attended to and used :n time they will pre
vent conflagrations. According to actual
tests and long experience they are each
equal to about three barrels (3) of water,
and you cannot consistently doubt this un
til you or some one else proves the contrary.
As an illustration I will prove one of them
more valuable than all the water in Tar
River. Suppose the roof of the Court
House was discovered to be on fire, (just a
little I mean) and it was evident to all that
unless a barrel or two of water could be
raised immediately to the spot the house
would have to burn. At this stage one
Gardner would save the building if handled
properly, and if it did it would prove itself
of more value than l ar Kiver, lor one
could not be carried to the roof while the
other could. The great difficulty to be
overcome before Fire Extinguishers will be
generally appreciated is an unfounded
prejudice against them, which is so blind
that commonsense even cannot open its
evef. . People generally believe that the
name of these machines must be accepted
literallv and hence they are silly enough to
believe that a machine which is succeptable
of transportation on a man s back is capa
ble of putting out any kind of a fire. If a
man was so unfortunate as to put a piece
of hot pudding in his mouth he certainly
would not run to a well and cmnK a oarrei
of water to step the hurting. He would
simply take a mouthful from his glass and
suppress his condition. Now if your office
was to catch on fire and you had a com
pressed or condensed barrel of water at
hand, you certainly would not run out un
til vou had exausted that water. In other
words if the hot pudding was in your
mouth vou would not leave the table ab
ruptly and seek the well before you had
exausted your convenient tummer run,
which is always at hand. If you would
you had better stop editing a paper, for it
will prove too much lor your me u iorce.
This illustrates, poorly though it may be,
the position occupied by a nre extinguisher.
It is a convenient condensation ot a suita
ble chemical apparatus that is capable of
stopping things from burniug too much, if
it is used at the proper time, ana always
kept ready and at hand. I have put out
in your streets with one Gardner Extin
eroisher fifteen (15) burning barrels twice
that were saturated with kerosene oil and
fired in open air. Both fires were extin
guished within four minutes. This amount
of fire could have been put out much easier
indoors than out, and it seems to me that
so compact a machine that will do so much
work deserves more credit than it receives.
I have written this letter because I sold
your town the Gardner Extinguishers it has,
and 1 am not wilting to tie classed among
those who wilfully sell worthless apparatus
of anv kind. If your Gardner and Bab-
cock machines are taKen proper care oi
and used on incipient fires, they will prove
- . . . . p
themselves valuable, but if your people are
blind enough to suppose that they can ex
tinguish a house thoroughly burning, they
really do not deserve protection very long.
If you boy a Hand Engine and Hoop and
Ladder Truck, they will prove equally as
useless as vou seem to think the Extin
guishers unless sufficient cisterns are built
to supply water.
Yours respectfully. &c ,

The Gem Microscope. The Gen Mi
croscope is truly an optical wonder. It
reveals thousands of unseen wonders and
curiosities of God's minute creation ; the
small worlds teeming with animal life, the
little things of nature with which we are
surrounded, but which are invisible to the
naked eye, the thousand and one curiosi
ties and minute objects with many of which
we are familiar, because we have read or
heard of them, but which to the unaided
vision have remained a sealed book, are
brought within the realizing reach of our
sight and understanding by the use of the
Gem, and many wonders entirely new to
us are also brought to Bight by its use. No
article for the same price has ever been of
fered to the public which combines the es
sential point of valuable instmction and
entertaining refined amusement to so great
an extent as this instrument. It is so low
priced that everybody can have one, and so
simple a child can use it. Parents should
provide their children with this valuable
instructor. This Microscope possesses the
great advantage of being used by lamp
light as well as by daylight, and thus af
fords entertainment after the occupations of
the day are laid aside. It is really of great
value to any family if only because it shows
the adulterations in food, as sugars, teas,
etc., and the qualities of cloths. It also
plainly shows Trichina Spiralis or Pork
Worm whenever it exists in pork. It is

And we guarantee each fertilizer to come up to the analysis required by law. We, in com
mon with Mr. Bradley, believe the new law passed by the General Assembly of N'oi ill Caro

and one which we have desired, to prevent fraud. The Fertilizers which we sell are L'uarati
teed to come up to the analysis standard. We advise onr farming community to Use
