If he hail, he would have seen a striking
recmblaikv between the Socialists of
France and the fanatical Radicalism of the
South, both alike opposed to all decency,
arrayed against the higher views of the
former age, pulling down men because of

Of delegates were titen approved and the

to speechifying, that is if the vituperations
of such characters as Mabson, a man who
can boast upon the public rostrum cf his

.goods, tl.. .ugh not perhaps involving more
moral guilt iu the crimnial, is certainly a
t greater public evil than stealing itself.
T!.u thief injures one individual, the re
cover of the -.tolen goods is the accomplice
perhaps of a hundred rogues. There is
uls ) a difficulty a; tending the conviction of
these people that renders them doubly dan
gciovj.;, and licr.ee it is a matter of congrat

has rested upon the store of Austin Dozicr,

Pulling np Stumps.
Wuij'AKEUii, X. C, April 2'.l, li74.
i Mn. Ewitoi: : Noticing the views of a
eorresjxmdent in the "State Agricultural
Journal" in regard to getting r.d of
stumps, I will irive you my own experi
ence. First dig away the dirt from the
stump, and cut the top roots, not too close
ly to the stump : then with a log chain 8
or 10 feet long, made of inch or inch and
a quarter round iron, looped around one of
the largest and strongest roots, and earned
around the large end of a jwle from 35 to
40 feet long, and at the small end fasten a
small chain, to which hitch a pair of mules,
or yoke of oxen. Now drive around in a
circle, and the stump will Vie twisted up in
short order. The writer has gotten out
a great many m a day by this process. It
is better to let the "land lay out, and )e
tolerably wet when it is undertaken.
I would suggest that it will be surpris
ing to find so many stumps, that look
hard and sound, to be perfectly decayed,
after the grass and tbrt has been taken
waJ and ready to be knocked or pushed
out of the ground. Just start about it
with the intention to succeed, and it will be
done. The above has particular reference
to pine stumps. I argue the writer in the
Journal, that oak stumps will soon rot
out any way, but they are very easy to
twist out. " M.

I shall leave this place to-day and expect
to stay away for some time." I shall not
be able to vf itc to you about Washington
and the doings thereof during my absence.
Excessive rains have fallen in this local
ity for some time past and, in consequence
of the same, farmers are somewhat back
ward, and the freshet has been (for a
week) so great as to seriously impede fish
ing. Dr. Bryan's seine at this place has
been idle for several days.
On Thursday last the "Home Dramatic
Association," gave another of their exhi
bitions ; as I was not present I can say
nothing about the performance except that
report says It was very creditable to the
members of the association.
Messrs. S. R. Fowle & Son have built at
Bath a large schooner, which was brought
here a few days since, to be rigged and
The Str. Olive sailed on Friday with v
usual quantity of freight.
I learn that Col D. M. Carter is to leave
tins town during the present week for
Raleigh, his future residence.
1 notice some preparation on Main Street
by the merchant's to move their places of
business two of them at least, Messrs.
Quin and Rund.
The several churches were pretty well
attended on yesterday at both morning
and evening sendees. The Episcopal ser
vices was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Hard
ing, a young man of fine talents, his subject
"swear not " was ably handled and had a
good effect I think, at least one of the
congregation remarked at the close of the
service, " he was going to quit swearing."
Mr. Green, Pastor of the Presbyterian
church is absent attending the Prr tery
at Greensboro. Major T. Sparrow offi
ciates in his absence.
Mr. Raven, the Methodist Minister, en
tertained for an hour and a half, and at
the close of the nervice, baptized one and
received two others into the church.
The subordinate granges of Edgecombe,
Martin, "Wilson, Nash, Halifax, Northamp

doos of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Purgative
Pellets when the attack first conies on, and
follow with two or three Pellets each day
until a perfect cute is effected. They cure
these cases by arousing all the secretions,
relieving obstrnctions, thus reducing the
action of the heart, relieving the congested
blood-vessels, softening the pulse producing
senile perspiration, and subduing the fever.
