Says the Wilmington Star : 'At a

held last evening, it was determined
to extend an invitation to His Excel

of this object a Committee was ap

West Indies and where the vessels
were sold with their cargoes, up to a
few years since a large number of
the vossels required in the trade were

and wi re considered as good as any

this business has been abandoned ?
Him State has an abundance oi as
good material now as then, there is
the same demand for good vessels,
aud we cannot but believe this
branch of mechanical art if carriod
on extensively, would become one of
the most important of trades in the
State. Let some of our friends in
the 'Old JSor:h State revive the trade
and we have no tears of their success.

New Sheriff. It is well known that
onr nw Sheriff, Mr. Cobb, has proved
himself no friend of ours, but he makes a
better officer than moat radicals occupying
his position and does his duty well in the
Senatoe. We see from the Raleigh
News that Senator Mabson received leave
or alence for a few days to attend Edge

Official Dcty. Last Friday an indi
vidual, a devout worshiper of Bacchus and
at the time having his soul full of devotion
to the genial god (or his head filled with
old rye) was so intent upon his meditations
that he lost not only the power of self-control
but that of managing his steed, and ran
his chariotee (or cart) against one of the
city lamp posts to the great injury of the
appended luminary. There was a pause
in the gentleman's thoughts and he was
preparing for further progress when Officer
Hyatt came upon the stage and escorted
him into the honored presence of our Mayor
where the bacchinalian devotee deposited a
small amount to mend the lamp aud took
bis tear on otir thoughts, intent.
Judge Hiluabd beems to be giving
satisfaction. He is prompt in his decisions,
attentive in the hearing of causes and cour
teous in his dealings with the bar. We
await, however, to know more of his offi
cial conduct before expressing our opinion,
hoping we will always have the justice and
magnanimity to recognize worth wherever
we find it.
Oik Dockets Show but little court
business of a civil nature, there being but
forty eight cases on the civil appearance
docket. The criminal docket, however, is
full as usual, one hundred and forty cases
being now docketed oeside the numerous
ones to be found by the Grand jury. They
are mostly of the usual petty nature.
New Clebk. The face of Mr. John
Norfleet, a familiar one in our court for the
past twenty or thirty yeais, is missed at
the present term. His seat is occupied by
the new clerk for our county, II. L. Sta
ton, Esq., who seems to have taken hold
of the staff of his office with a determina
tion to do his duty and seems to be giving
Couldn't Agree. An attorney the
other day dilated pathetically upon the fact
that his client ought to be permitted to
walk upon the "green earth free from
prison bars." The jury, however, couldn't
agree with him and thought it more healthy
for his client to spend the winter in the
Isn't Tiikke Some Wat. Or can not
some be devised, by which the public could
be spared the annoyanca and inconvenience
to which it it is subjected every day at our
depot ? The passengers have to wait un
til the freight cars are shifted before they
re carried to the depot. Can the freight
not be attended to after the passengers
get off ?
Not Rioht. Those who purchased re
served seats to the Berger show last Friday
nlght were much annoyed to find that they
had been so crowded, to make room for
more, as to be decidedly uncomfortable.
A diagram of the reserved seats is made
out and people purchase under the impres
sion that there are only so many and at a
comfortable distance apart, and when they
are sold under this impression it is not
right afterwards to change them.

Judge's Charge. The charge of his
Honor on Monday was in no way peculiar,
the usual synopsis of the fourth volume of
Blackstone. We notice one thing which
we presume w as but a lapsus i. e. iu classi
fying the wrongs that would fall under the
cognizance of the jury he mentioned homi
cide, assaults, batteries, &c, as private
wrongs. They are offences against the
person but, as is laid in the bills, are more
properly against the peace and dignity of
Lawyers. We notice in attendance
upon our court the following members of
the Bar : Messrs. B. H. Bunn and Dossey
Battle, of Rocky Mount . Messrs. Geo.
Howard, Wm. II. Johnston, Fred. Philips,
J. M. Perrv. Jno. L. Bridgers. Jr., and
J. B. Cheshire, Jr., of Tarboro ; Geo. W.
Blount, of Wilson ; A. T. London, Esq.,
of Wilmington ; Solicitor Martin, of Wil
liamston, and Oharacolored, of Hal
Home Esterprise. Messrs. Battle &
Son are n w offering to the home trade
goods from their cotton factory in every
way equal to those of northern or foreign
manufacture. It is a healthy sign when
we see these articles old from factories in
our own midst, thus building up Southern
enterprises and saving money to the pur
chasers, not only in freights to and from
the northern markets, but in the profits of
numerous intermediate purchasers. See
Messrs. Bat le & Son's advertisement.
Taeboko Property. The sales of the
lots included in the property now occupied
by Mr. Jno. W. Cotton by Jos. B. Chesh
ire, Esq., Administrator of the late Gov.
Clark, show that notwithstanding the
stringency of the times Tarboro real estate
holds its own. The corner with the resi
dence brought 2525, the lot adjacent, seventy-five
feet by one hundred and fifty,
brought $550, the corner lot, of same size,
650, and the back lot $450.

Why the Change ? It used to be the
custom in our court room, and has been
ever since the war, for the whites to as
cend the steps on the right of the door and
the colored people on the left. Now the
colored pople have both stairways under
their control and when they come to the
court room they occupy all the seats to the
complete exclusion of the whites. Are the
white people of the country, whose money
built the Court House and sustains every
officer of the county, to have no considera
tion shown them ? They should certainly

only three cases of any importance : State

reported in tLe Enquirer-Southerner at the
time of the occurrence. Messrs. Howard

Editor Enquirer-Southerner :
I see i-i your last issue a notice from P.
S. Hicks, Standard Keeper for Edgecombe
county, for every person who keeps halan
ances and steelyards aud measures, to bring
them to Tarltoro and have them tested.'
The said Standard Keeper receiving (25c.)
twenty cents for every measure and bal
ance tested. There certainly is great in
justice to the fanners by such a law. If I
sell my cotton in Tarboro, it is not taken
at my weights, and if I measure my meai,
potatoes, peas, corn, or anyting I may have
to sell, it is not taken at my measure.
Then why compel me (a farmer) who only
keeps balances and measures for conven
ience and not profit, to pay a Standard
Keeper 25 cts. for my measures or balan
ces I may have. The farmers don't keep
balances and measures as a business for
buying and selling, but only for conven
ience, and when any little business trans
pires that requires the use of them between
them aud their neighbors and botn are sat
isfied. I go into a store iu Tarboro and
pay 23 cts. for a pair spring balances, and
go to P. S. Hicks and pay him 25 cts. (100
per cent.) just to see if they are correct
and ttiis is done every two years. Atten
