Plantation Bells Have become so
fashionable throughout the county, that a
man living near Sparta, whose operations
on his farm only require the services of
one hand besides himself, concluded to btry
a bell and be up with the times. Every

to the house to ring the bell, and boasts to
his neighbors of the economical regulations

Je'.vs. In a discussion ou the streets
this week several gentlemen expressed an
opinion that the advent of Jews to Tar
boro' had injured the place. We beg leave
to differ with them. The Jewish element
of this community has increased the value
of real estate and the trade at this point,
at least 25 per cent. Were they to leave,
we believe there would Ik equally as large
a decline. They are good citizens and au
unoffending'set of people. We would be
glad to see .too Jews come to Tarboro' to
morrow with capital, and in a year after
wards, the business of tlie place would have
TiuiiFT. Over the river just outside the
town limits we have noticed twenty-three
small but neat houses, built in the last year
or two and owned by colored men.
Strange to say, not one among them lias
taken a conspicious part in politics.
And when we look around, those in the
county who have accumulated some prop
erty aud are doing well, have done like
wise. This seems to argue that the most
intelligent and respectable of the race re
fuse to observe the dictates of the de
grading negro leaders of the Radical party
in Edgecombe, and by industry and thrift
are providing homes for their families and
obtaining the wherewithal to educate and
improve their offspring.

there was no policemen in a mile of the

ed. One of nearly the same nature took place
in front of lloanc's store on Monday. It
is outrageous that the decency of the town
is shocked almost daily with these occur
rences, and the offenders go unpunished,
If it is owing to a neglect of duty on the

The Election Steamboats, &c
Falkland, Pitt Co., Aug. 10, 1874.
Editor Enquirer-Southerner :
Dear Sir: Of course you have heard
ere this the good news from this count v.
"Old Pitt is herself again." The coun'ty
has gone overwhelmingly democratic.
As the election is over we are now think
ing about steamboats. We want another
one on the liver. It is very strange that
some people can't see it." The "Cotton
Plant " raised the freight on cotton imme
diately after the "Vesta" was taken off
the river. Tiie farmers along the river no
doubt will have an increased freight unless
we have another boat. Every one that has
any freight whatever should take stock
and start the boat right off. Are the Di
rectors at work ? We want another boat
and ought to have it.
Yours, &c, Ex(nr.E!:.
Truly remarks the Carolina
" The man who has a family of children
and does not take a newspaper, is taking
upon himself the lesponsibility of turning
loose upon the community a set of ignorant
beings to disgrace his name, who, for a few
cents a day, might be made intelligent and
And the Charlotte Observer is not mista
ken "A newspaper that has no enemies, is
a newspaper that has no character no
courage no boldness no backbone, "spi-
nahty, as elegant writers say now-a-days.
And its influence is not a feather's weight.
Woe unto you when all men shall speak
well of you !" is a warning that we pay
heed to'. There is more good sense in the
Scripture than in all the other books of the
Tak Riveu Navigation Co. We are
informed by Macon Bonner, Esq., that the
amount of stock subscribed thus far a
mouuts in the aggregate to 7,500.00.
The amount required for the purchase of
the desired steamer being $9,000.00, there
yet remains to be raised $1500.00.
Mr. Bonner has been very faithful and
energetic in canvassing this county and the
success with which he has met, gives him
good cause to be so sanguine as to think
the boat will be on the line by 1st of Octo
ber. Should the enterprise result as is expec
ted, the steamer will connect with Balti
more and other lines at Washington, and
Bills of Lading will be given from all points
on Tar River to the different cottou mark
ets North and South.
Inasmuch as the many advantages which
would accrue to the people of this county
and of Pitt from this steamboat have been
time and again reviewed in this paper,
wejdecm it unnecessary at this time to enter
again into details. The next meeting of
the stockholders will be held at the Court
House on Tuesday next, when a full atten
dance is earnestly requested.
Election Rettens. In a letter from
Wiliiamston to a gentleman residing in this
place, under date of the 10th inst., we lind
the following political information :
"We reduced the Radical majority in
Martin county from 'JO to :J0, notwithstand
ing the importation of 2 or 300 voles at
Jamesville and Waring. I give you below
the counties we have heard from :
Martin 30 majority for Cobb, gam of 60.
Bertie 250 majority for Cobb, cain of
Washington 130 majority for Cobb, gain
Beaufort 500 for Yeaies, a gain of 815.
Pamlico 225 for Yeates, a gain of 140.
Perquimans 10 for Yeates, a gain of 300.
Pitt 200 for Yeates, a gain of 200.
Tyrrell 250 for Yeates, a gain of 200.
Hertford 84 for Cobb.

Chowan 100 for Cobb.
Pasquotank 1 SO for Cobb, a gain of 200.
Camden 180 for Yeates, a gain of 300.
Currituck 350 to 400 for Yeates.
Have not heard from Hyde and Dare.
Yeates majority will be lietween 1500 to
2000. We have gained in this Congress
ional District 11 members of General As

Truly this is a great victory, and well may
the people rejoice, for it is the death of
Radicalism in North Carolina, for which
thanks be to God."
