Charlotte Observer: Yesterday a
young woman of this city appeared
before Justice A. EL Marton, and told
the following story : About six
months ago she went to one of the
depots to meet her sister, whom she
expected on the night train. While
standing on the platform a gentle
can whom she could only describe as
haviag a long black beard, came up
to her and placed yonng baby in her
arms, telling her to care for it and
when it needed anything to call upon
a certain citizen, whose name the
magistrate refused to communicate
to us, and he would give her money
or whatever she wanted- The man
placed some money in her hand and
quickly disappeared. Since that
time she has provided for the child's
wants at the expense of the strange

Mi rder and Robbery. Oa the morn
ing of Saturday, Oct. 31st, when Mr. Robe
son of the Ami of Robeson & Mayo, went to
his store situated in this county, about 11
miles from Tarboro, he found on opening
the door the bruised and bleeding body of
his clerk, Mr. Nathan Grimes, lying stretch
ed on the floor. A short examination re
vealed a horrible and atrocious crime.
The money drawer of the store containing,
it is supposed, between 50 or 75 dollars in
money, hail beeu robbed. An axe with
blood on the eye and on the handle and a
piece of scantling, also stained with blood,
were found near the place where Grimes
was lying and three severe wounds, one on
the arm, another on the neck, and the third
on the back of Grimes' head, showed that
murder was intended by the robbers to ren
der the accomplishment of their object
more easy and to prevent its discovery.
Mr. Grimes lingered till Sunday evening
when he did. Before his death his con
ciousness returned to liim and his account
of the affair led to the arrest of Perry
Overton, white, and Noah Taylor, colored,
who are now in jail.
Mr. Grimes was very respectably connec
ted In the county and was a very inoffen
sive young man. The residents of that
portion of the county naturally feel very
much outraged at the perpetration of so
startling a crime.

Night. Another large and appreciative
audinence was in attendance at Teel Hall
On Tuesday night to witness the Songs,
Dances, Fairy Scenes, &c, gotten up by
Prof. Bailey, with the assistance of some
twenty young ladies and children, ranging
In age from i years and upwards. The
first of the programme was the Cantanta of
Grand-Pa's Birth-Day, in which all ac-
quited themselves, (especially the leetle
ones) in a manner that drew applause
and praise from the whole house. After
which numerous songs and dances were en
gaged in by the little Fairies, then came
the beautiful Fairy Scenes from the
" Court of Oberon," and in the manner in
which the little Fairies repeated their partF,
shows that they were well drilled. The
Comedy of ' The Three Wishes," though
assisted by some of our old stagers, did not
elicit the praise they deserve, owing to the
fact that some of the characters had not
sufficient notice to prepare themselves.
The Pantomine of the " Lazy Family "
was quite amusing, and brought repeated
laughter from the audience. In conclusion
Prof. Bailey deserves credit for the exer
tions he has made in getting up these en
tertainments for the enjoyment of our
Edgecombe Female Semisaey. At a
meeting of the Board of Directors of the
Edgecombe Female Seminar' last Spring it
Was agreed to postpone all action in the
matter until some time this Fall, when a
full meeting of the stock -holders might be
had and their prompt attention secured.
Pursuant to this " action of the Board of
directors a meeting of the stockholders of
the Edgecombe Female Seminary is hereby
called, to take place at the Court House in
the town of Tarbor.6 on Friday, Nov. ISth.
It is very important that there- should be a
foil attendance. By. order of the President.

The Work of Editing a Newspaper.
la commenting upon the failure of a news
paper manager, the St. Louis Globe tells a
plain truth in the following words :
" The business of journalism will con
tinue to be an inviting field for experiments
to those who have a large amount of money
and a large amount of egotism. A man
who, having edited a newspaper until he
was forty, should suddenly announce him
self a lawyer, would be regarded as a fool
by the legal profession ; and yet we often
hear of lawyers of forty making sudden
pretensions to journalism. There is an
idea that the business of editing requires
no apprenticeship, that editors come forth
from law offices and colleges f ally armed
for the profession, like Pallas from the
brow of Jove. It is a mistake ; there is
not in America to-day a single journalist
of national reputation who has not devoted
more time and more hard work to his pro
fession than, with equal fitness and appli
cation, would have made him a great law
yer or a good doctor. And yet ninety out
of every hundred you meet on the street
will hesitate about carrying a hod of mak
ing a pair of shoes, whereas there will
probably not be one in the hundred
who can't, according to hia own judgment,
edit any newspaper in tbe country better
than it is edited, no matter in what manner
or by whom."

I promised, you remember in my last,
" To take you eastwardly to Hyde, in my
next, but it becomes necessary (as I , found
before f reached Hyde) for me to attend
the Superior Court of this county, I deem
ed it expedient to postpone the description
promised, to a more convenient season.". I
noticed, however, that the bridge across
the stream which . divides this and Hyde
county was approaching completion.' The
nvcr, (Pungo) at this point is 433 wide
and is near 30 feet deep and cost about

Court, met on Monday at the usual hour,
Hon. Louis Hilliard, presiding. Maj.
J. G. Blount the Clerk elect, I see is at his
post. The attendance was unusually large
even for Monday, owing perhaps to the
large number of capital and serious cases
of less importance, which are on the docket.
The State docket is nearly as large again as
at last court, something near 1 00 cases ;
one case of rape, one of arson, and one or
two homicides. I see no members of the
bar present except those living in town and
J. J. Martin, Solicitor. But little has
been done yet, some few cases c i minor
import having been disposed of. The
Grand Jury, I understand, have found a
true bill against Aaron Bonner, (col.) for
rape upon the person of a young lady, in
tlie lower part of this county. Hon. J. B.
Respess is" foreman of the Grand Jury.
The Court House "under the new adminis
tration has been overhauled and repainted
on the iuside. The Clerk's. Resistor's and
Sheriff's offices, as well as the Jury rooms
are improved in appearance considerably:
Some excitement lias been manifested in
this town owing to cards by Messrs.' War
ren and Sparrow relative to some matter
growing out of the Rail Road controversy.
It is to lie hoped that the better judgment
of the two gentlemen and the eminent po
sitions which they occupy will prevent
any serious consequences from arising.
