Astronomical Lbctubb. Prof. 8.
Hassel delivered his illustrated lecture on
Astronomy at Teel Hall in this place on
last Wednesday night. Wre regret that we
did not have before us the high enconiums
passed on this scientific effort by the press
of the State before our last issue, so that
we could have given our readers a better
idea of its character and merits.
The lecture of Prof. Hassel! was gotten
up in splendid Btyle, the language being
that of a finished scholar, and the sub
stance showing a familiar acquaintance
with the masters of the science on which
he spoke. A strong oxy-calcium stereop-
ticon was used, by which the different por
tions of the lecture were beautifully illus
trated, showing the rotation of the earth,
its seasons, its course in the ecliptic, the
orbits of numerous heavenly bodies, the
laws by which they are governed, their
chemical composition, the character of
stars, asteroids, nebulae, etc
The lecture was certainly an able one,
but, if the Professor will allow our criti
cism, it contained too much to be digested
and made useful in one evening's enter
tainment, and would be more profitable if
subdivided. The mind could sot thor
oughly grasp one fact before another de
manded his attention. We are glad to see

"The well known reputation of this
company is sufficient guarantee of its mer
it and magnitude. For a period of over
fifty years Mr. Robinson has been directly
connected with the Amusements of our
country, in a managers! capacity, his word
has never been broken, his promises have
always been kept inviolate; it is to this
consistent manner of acting that he owes
the present proud position he now holds.
His greatest aim during that entire period
has been to have the best that money could
procure; to this end he has lavishly ex
pended a princely fortune to gather in one
vast combination all that is rare, wondrous,
beautiful and strange in the animal king
dom. Energy, time, care and skill have
alike been devoted to the object of pre
senting to that public to whose liberality
he owes his vast wealth, an exhibition that
for magnificence, grandeur, excellence and
merit far surpasses any organization in the
world. His arenic performers are unex
celled; his is the only traveling aquarim in
the world, while in addition to his many
cages of rare wild animals, are special feat
ures, such as the Giraffe, the Eland, the
Rhinoceros, monster Sea Lions, Giant Afri
can Ostriches; in fact, every conceivable
species of our great Creator s handiwork,
'There went in two and two into the Ark,
The male and the female, as God had com
manded Noah.' 1
No wonder it is that John Robinson is
to-day a millionaire. The public ace al
ways ready to patronize true merit, and his
great success is due to the fact that he al
ways promises to exhibit the best; and that
his word has never been broken to the
public. Rember the day the big show

itself a great show. and. every one who
really desires to see a fine display should
embrace the opportunity afforded them."

Elder Thos. Oberry, Mr. Sam'l L. Moors
and Miss Jans E. Cabnst.
MACNAIR. Died in Tarboro, N. C, at
the residence of her son, Dr. A. 11. Mac
nair, Mrs. Eliza Bakes Macnair, relict of
of the late Edmund Macnair, in the 84th
year of her aire. She was born 17th July,
1791 ; married 14th December, 1808, and
died 29th August, 1874, at 45 minutes
after 11 a. m.
By the death of this estimable lady an
other prominent landmark of this century
has disappeared from our highway of life.
The mother of a large family, whose chil
dren's children she beheld to the third gen
eration, and -long the cherished object of
an extensive circle of relations and friends,
she left an unusual number of affectionate
hearts to mourn their loss, and feel the ab
sence of her precepts and example, which
had so long guided them in all their trials
and vicissitudes of life. Bom to affluence
and high social position, which she adorn
ed with her virtues, her life was spent fn
the walks of domestic privacy, dispensing
the charities and hospitalities of her station,
and in the conscientious discharge of her
duties to her family a noble example of a
Christian wife, mother and neighbor.
She was the daughter of the late Augus-
tua Harvey, of Beaufort county, . v., a
I worthy sea of Idea Harwy, who -with bis
relatives ; took. such an .active part in the
I early movements of the revolution and in
( the actual War of independence, and -whose
names are prominent in the early history
of North Carolina in varioos departments
civil and military. Other connexions of
her family were not lea eminent and hon
orable. One of her father's sisters married
the late Reading Blount, tad another the
late John uray Blount two, among many,
brothers illustrious in public and private
life. At Her father's death the late J. G.
. . inw ..... ,
and indue time her mother married Mr.
Jacob Blount, another brother, in all whose
families the young ward became a loved

Her mother's maiden name was Susan
Smith, born and reared, we believe, in the
uciguuoruuuu ox rxienton. one was a iaay I
of rare worth and beauty. She first mar- I
ried a Mr. Granger: without children, she
then married Mr. Harvey, the father of
Mrs. Macnair, after bis death she married
Mr. Jacob Blount, as stated above; after
his death she remained a widow 'till her
own death in 1818 in Edgecombe. We re
member in our boyhood how we reverenced
and loved ner as the ideal of grandmothers,
convmcea n tnere ever was a saint on
earth, she was one; for she was truly a
Roman mother, with all the graces of a
Christian one. Uf such a mother the sub
ject of this notice was a worthy daughter.
whose gifts or birth, and fortune were the
least of her endowments. For years she
used and enjoyed these gifts with meek
ness and moderation; and with meekness
and resignation she saw them melt away
like tne mists of the morning. But her s
were the gifts that could never perish.
She was a hfe-Jocg member of the Episco
pal Church. A profound sentiment of re
ligion directed all her conduct, and guided
the darkest clouds of her life with the light
of Uoepel truth aud hope in the merits of a
crucified Redeemer. For her death was a
joyous entrance into those rnr"'iw pre
pared by the Father, where the redeemed
of tne Son shall live in joy forever.
