The descriptive and statistical depart

Esq., the gifted associate editor of the
magazine, is one in which the commercial,
nn-rteulturaL mining and other interests w ill
to represented all that concerns North
Carolina (heaven's blessings attend her) in
her oast, present and future.
The educational department contains a j
sketch of the Orphan Asylum, prefaced by
a very correct drawing of the institution,
the school law of North Carolina, an ad
dress by Prof. Doub, and the continuation
of "The Discipline of the School."
The editorials are evidently written by-
Mr. Kingsbury. Wc are sincerely giau to
see this gentleman occupying a field of
which his pure literary taste and ability pe
culiarly lit him.
The poem " Over the Grave of Col. Sol.
Williams " is very creditable to the VTarrcn
county poet who first sent it to the Battlc
boro Advance (in 1872, we think.) The
second poem, " Two Years Ago, pays a
beautiful tribute to other heroes of the
"Lost Cause," whose names

The Tarboro Female Seminary. It
has now been alout eighteen months since
the subject of the Female Seminary was
initiated, and yet it seems no nearer com
pletion than it was two months after the
scheme began. It is true the times have
been unusually hard and money scarce,
but it also seems apparent that a large part
of the enthusiasm demonstrated at first Is
disipated and that every day the chances of
the institution are becoming more and more
uncertain. One thing is sure the project
will certainly fail if it is to continue in the
uncertain condition as now, and therefore
we would suggest that a meeting of the
Stockholders lie held at an early date and
final action be taken. It will be better for
every interest concerned.

Marlboro', N. C, Oct. 5, 1874.
Dear Enquirer-Southei ner :
It was the custom of some of our officers
on the Rio Grande, during the Mexican
war, to have the hours and half -hours of
the night called out by the sentinels equal
ly to announce security and quiet, as well
as something wrong. You may have heard
of the Dutchman who had so much trouble
to perform that simple duty. The cry
"Half past 10 o'clock and all's well," was
going the "rounds." It was clearly re
peated by each sentinel in his turn until it
reached the Dutchman, who having no
tounge for English, utterly failed. The
oflicer of the guard riding up, demanded :
" Why do you not make the call, sir?"
" Ich fogiss no can English spracl.en."
"What in the devil is all that? Call
out half past 10 o'clock aud all's well, or
I'll put you in the guard house."
The Dutchman was scared. He knew
what guard house meant, so after a few
more fruitless efforts to pronounce the ex
act words, he finally roared out at the top
of his stentorian voice :
" More as den o'glock, and all is totter
1 have often laughed at the perplexity of
that Dutchman. But the custom which
gave rise to it, is a good one. It is as im
jiortaut to know when all is well, as when
there is disturbance. 1 therefore proceed
to announce to you that here in this Conner- I
, ative town of Marlboro, two months have I
)tliu-i 1 iirw 1 ! t irt ttm a tuitt ov
passed since the election, and "all is totter
as goot.'' That conies of being all conser
vatives: there is not a white radical in the
township. Who can beat us? The word
having passed, my duty is discharged. Let
the next sentinel do his.
I may as well tell you, by way of post
script um to the above, of an amusing inci
dent that occurred upon the reading of one
of your humorous clippings. It was the
anecdote of an Inshmau who had stolen
hay ; and confessing the tbeft to bis priest, 4
was asked how much he had stolen?
Never mind your Riverence," answered
Pat, " I may as well confess to the whole
stack, as I am going back for the balance
to-night. " While reading this aloud a ne
gro stepped up and very excitedly begged
to have it read over. When it was repeat
ed to him, he exclaimed: "My poor broth
er ! That's what I've been fraid of. I
lent him my boss to tend his farm, and be
promised me to take good care of him; and
now cause times is hard he's gone and stole
hay to feed him. And I spressly made
him promise " Patrick, says L don't you
go to git in no scrape now bout dig boss."
And he said he wouldn't. But see what's
come of it ! My poor brother, (almost cry
ing) Patrick always was a fool. And what
hurts me was is dat he's gwine back to
steal de balance to-night, and bVs done
told on hisself cley'll catch him sartiu,
and den my hoss is gone up. If I could
only git derc in time to stop him, but it's
too late, he's got it fore dis. Poor Patrick !
I'm 6o sorry ! and dat hoss ! This has
at least the rare merit of being true "ver
batim et literatim et nidiculatim,"
In conclusion, a little money is coming
back from early sales of cotton. "We are

Baltimore, Oct. 9th, 1874.
Editor Enquirer-Southerner :
This citj-, like all others, has fallen short
with its Fall trade and while the jobbers
and manufacturers will loose thereby, the
country, generally, will gain. A short fall
trade always indicates prudence and econ
omy in the country. We have never wit
nesscd healthier buying or more careful
selecting by merchants than they observed
this season, and no one, possessed of sound
reasonining, can do otherwise than praise
their course. The habits of economical or
extravagant home buyers are plainly dis
played by the purchases of their merchants
and therefore it is an easy matter tor job
bers to learn where either of these habits
exist. Many jobbers and manufacturers
wear long faces, but, when questioned as
to the shortness of the trade they all agree
that the small stocks taken home, by mer
chants, unquestionably promises well for
Commission merchants are on the " qui
vive," and each one has his "candid opin
ion " in regard to the cotton crop and the
prospects of that " kingly stape." Iam
unable to give any facts relating to cotton
that would add much to the present stock
on hand by every well posted farmer, yet
1 am inclined to the belief that the farmer
who sells to home buyers will reap equally
as much, if not more, than the one who
ships to Commission Merchants, witn in
structions to "hold," which they are inva
riably advised to do by sellers that advance
on shipments, lor noiaing always runs in
terest account up and that is no small item
when money is plenty at six per cent, in
the city and farmers are willing to pay
seven and eight or ten for advances. Were
I a farmer I should never ship cotton ex
cept for immediate sale. If I had any to
hold I would simply insure and keep it
at home until I needed more money. The
indications are that cotton will decline
some during the next sixty days and after
that it will advance slowly but steadily.
Of course the size of the crop will control
the rise, but dispite all the efforts made,
the number of bales cannot, witb any cer
tainty, be ascertained till ths crop baa been
entirely housed, and even then the wise I
men are not so well informed as they might j
be ifUfcej had all of it in one pile. '
If my adviceTshdr
ay to your farmers, by all means, send j
your crop to this market for no city in tlie ,
Lmon possesses , totter advantages or more
correct commission merchants. North
Carolina is well represented in that line too
and her sons here,- who are, willing to do
all they can for those who believe that
' till the soil," must not be neglected.
Try them and j-ou will never regret it. I
need not remind your readers that " Bob
Pender " is here for they know that, but I
hope I will confer a favor by telling them i
that our State has two young merchants I
here who cannot be overestimated in any
way. in days ot darkest peril tney were
at the front with Carolina's banner and
now that they here raised a banner of their
own, I hope the State will aid them in
keeping it afloat, for they were certainly
not to blame because their state's flag had
to come down. Uncle Sam did it and hurt
them too by his rough way of performing
the operation. But to names, I refer with
pride to Manly & Johnston, and I can safe
ly say no better or clever men ever lived.
I cannot close this letter without refer
inc: to the visit of one of vour citizens (du
ring this week) to Baltimore. I will not
call his name but simply remark that he is
certainly the sweetest disposed and happi
est acting man I have met in years. Con
tentment nay joy beams in his face, love
flows from his tongue and his laugh (which
is almost continuous) is silvery music.
His actions earned me back to just betore j
I was made happy by taking Mrs. j
for better or worse. Have you any idea i
what is the matter with him ?
Yours, &c, C. L. C.

Mk. Editor Dear Sir: I see in your
paper of the 18th inst., an advertisement
headed " Warning," signed Dallas Dancy,
(col.), Council Smith, (col.). I consider
ihat I have been done great injustice by the
advertisement, as there is but one Dallas
Dancy in this (Edgecomto) county. I con
sider that both me and my wife are stan
dard by the card, as we are living peace
ably and happy together, and hope you will
correct or explain the matter in the next
Issue of your paper and much oblige your
(There seems to be two Dallas Dancy 's in
the county. It wa9 the other one who ad
vertised his wife. En.)
