The 4tb The Spirit of '76 still Rife
Tarboro' Loyal. We had been unjust
enough in our suspicions to imagine that
the glorious fourth of July, the national
natal dsy, that 98 years ago ushured into
the family ef nations a government that
was to play no minor part in the world's
drama, could dawn upon the quiet people
of our city with as much apparent aban
don and unconcern as the hotest day in
dog-days or the most dismal in mid-winter,
We thought the sun would rise over the
Methodist Church and set behind the Male
Academy and pass over a lot of busy men
on Main street without awakening the
slightest aspiration beyond the price of
cotton, dry goods and groceries. But
however wise a man may be he may some
times be mistaken. Newton, Kepler and
Aristotle made errors and so even, once in
a century, does the Enqtjibee-Southebneb,
The first evidence we had that the spirit
of 76 was rife on our streets was the dull
sound of a pop-cracker under an empty
barrel, accompanied by the small yell of a
small boy. We might have attributed the
sound to the glee of some naughty boy
over the disappointed looks of an unfortu
nate devotee of Bacchus as he pulled the
stopper out of his empty jug, had not the
continual cracaing snownus mat some
body else was cracked beside the devotee
aforesaid. This small popping and small
yelling continued, with various interval,
until sun-down, at which time the patriot
ism of the people had been worked up to
such a state that a subscription often
cents could easily have been made for a
sky-rocket or powder for a baby-waker.
In fact six or seven baby-wakers were ex
ploded, to the damage of window glass and
to the arousing in the nervously inclined

peace of mind which a baby loves to carry
to his couch. But they made a big noise

Terrific Hail Storm is Pitt. One of
the most terrific and destructive hail storms ;
ever witnessed in this section of country,
visited Bethel Township, Pitt county, on
Sunday last. The storm was of thirty
minutes duration, the stones averaging an
egg in size, some weighing a pound smd
more, and razed to the ground the entire
crop in a space six miles square. Mr. Jas.
L. Ward, who suffered a heavy loss to his
crop, amounting in the aggregate to 1500
dollars, has placed before us specimens of
corn, cotton, &c, after the storm. The
first presents the appearance of cane after
passing through a mill, its stock being rid
dled with holes similar to those made by
musket bullets, and the second is wholly
stripped of its branches, the stem being
crushed into a pulpy mass. The storm
hailed with such force that a horse which
unfortunately happened to be exposed on
a neighbors farm was instantly killed. Mr.
Ward lost some forty or fifty chickens.
In some places, although the shutters of
the farm houses were closed, the blinds,
glasses and sash were broken into pieces.
Services at Bethel Church had just been
concluded when the storm arose, and it was
so severe at that point that shingles were
knocked off, and a quantity of ice entered
the building through the roof.
The crops in this section w ere the finest
of any year since the war, and planters
w ho congratulated each other at the Church
in the forenoon on the bright prospects for
this season, returned to their homes in the
afternoon to find all in a state of ruin and
devastation. The damage at the lowest
figures is estimated at not less than one
hundred thousand dollars.
