from the office. We agree with our cotem

Mabson Bbought to Gbief. The Mis-
representative of old Edgecombe in the
North Carolina Senate was justly brought
to grief and his official position ignored by
the town Sargeant of Rocky Mount last
week, as we learn from our cntei prising
neighbor of 4that village. Says the Mail
During the political campaign of last
summer W. P. Mabson, col., present State
Senator from Edgecombe, made a speech at
Rocky Mount, in which he used such loud,
obscene and blasphemous language, as is
forbidden by one of our town ordinances.
Having violated this ordinance, the Mayor
issued a warrant for his arrest, but before
it could be served Mabson had left town.
Last Saturday officer Crumbier saw Mabson
in town afcd at once arrested h'.m and car
ried him beforel the Mayor, who fined him
$5. Mabson iiiasted that ho was a mem
ber of the LegisgUure and could not be
legally arrested, IV -t the officer telling him

' Wakb Forest Collegk. N. C, October 4, 1873.
Mr. C. P. Knight Dear Sir : W have for several months been uing your Bradley's
Patent Enamel Paint on our College livrilking and are well pleased with it. Through it
was applied by one haviDg no experience in such work, yet we have a ood job. We shall
continue to keep it believing that in point of conomy, durability and facility of applica
tion, it is superior to any other pigment pffered in the market. VT. G. SIMMONS.
From Messrs. Englehard & Saunders, Editors and Proprietors ".Journal."
-WlLMisOTOsr, N, O. Dec. '20, 187-'.
We desire to call especial attention to the advertisement of "Bradley's Patent Eimnnl
Paint." We can recommend it. from a knowledge of its merits. Somo of the employess
of this office having purchased some of this paint from Mr. C. P. Kninlil, of P.altimore,
have used it. and speak in the highest terms of it, after a trial of several months. While
it is as durable as ordiuary paint, it has a much liner finish, and its cost and conveniences
will recommend it to all in need of paint.

Mr. C. P. Knight Sir : The paint came safe to hand as ordered, 2 kegs. 0 gallons
eacn ana 6 Duckets, 1 gallon acu. As practice was slack, 1 did the job myself. Two
weeks (not constant) work completed the bouse, two coats; the last coat I applied thick.
and it is now generally conceded that for 'euamel.' like hardness, and body and harmony
of colors, there is not a handsomer job in the place. I saved sixty-five dollars by the
oderation which is an item just now with the 'Southern people.' It should be generally
adopted in this State. And country lad can apply it. I have never dabbled in such
stock as 'testimonials,' but feel so forcibly the great adaptability of your 'Enamel Paint'
to the wants of our people is excellency of material, in beauty f color, and in the fact of
its being 'ready mixed,' that I give you permission (if it is derirable to you) to make what
use you think proper of this ietter. Very respectfully and truly, 8. McGILL, M. D.

Sir : After a fair trial with your paint, I would unhesitatingly say that, after fifteen years'
experience with other paints, yours is the best that I ever had used. 1 have been using
No. 32 in priming and painting window sash. I find that it dries quickly, and leaves a
smooth, enamel-like surface that no other paint does. It is like good ink compaied with
bad. Your paint flowers so freely that an inexperienced hand can spread it without
daubing. I hope to be able soon to send to you for a lot of your paint for house painting
