Negro Shot. One of the strangest
tricks done here a week or so a;o by Prof.
Sands was the one in which he allowed a
pistol to be fired at him, catching the ball
in his teeth. Some darkies arc smart
enough to discover the " pint " iu almost
any trick, and so sure was the fellow of
whom we are speaking that he hr.d the
whol j thing in a nutshell that next day he
got one of his friends to stand ten paces off
and fire at him, telling the crowd that gath
ered to see the fun, he coidd catch the ball
like the professor. No. 2 did as he was
directed, but the load took effect in the
guttural legions instead of the dental.
Don't suppose he will be qui e so anxious
to imitate the next trick lie sees.
B;t:gi.ai:v. A colored individual whose
name we have forgotten, by means of a
false key entered the store of Mr. S. Wool
lard on Water Street one night this week.
In divesting the money drawer cf its con
tents, he concluded to appropriate Mr.
Woollard's pocket knife Swhich happened
to be in there alSv). Next evening his con
duct excited suspicion and in the search
which followed, the knife and other arti
cles which were identified by Mr. W. as
his property, were found in l.is possession.
Thereupon Justice Taylor committed him
to jail to await the coming of his Honor
Judge Ililliatd, who has little fondness for
rogues and who will doubtless give him
quarters in the Civil Rights Hotel at Raleigh
for a few years. He deserves it.

The Late Wm. Bagi.ey. Mr. Wm.
Baglcy, jone of the oldeot and most respec

after a short but painful illness.
Mr. Bagley was a gentleman of fine
character and was much beloved in this
community. For a number of years and
up to the time of his death, he was a mem
ber of the Methodist Episcopal Church,
and his constant christian walk through
life assures us that he has departed to a
land of eternal joy and rest.
His funeral was preached Tuesday morn
ing at 10 o'clock, and the remains were
carried to Martin County on the same dtry
for interment, bis brother-in-law, Mr.
Short, of Wilmington, and several inti
mate friends, accompanying them.
Thus is broken one of the links that
binds us to the past.
Hit the Nail on t;i Head. The
Peidmont Press gives as it's experience in

thing down here. The Press hits the nail
on the head in expressing it as follows :
"See here, don't get excited when wc
send you a statement of your account with
the Press, and swear lfore you think, that
you don't owe us anything. Time flics
my friends ! Here is the way they come a
bout these misunderstandings. After one
has been getting the paper about sixteen or
eighteen months he will sing out to von
some da, 'helloa old fei, 1 owe you $2.00
for your pa-icr, here's the money.' We
haven't the courage to tell him its $1.00,
since two years subscription is due. So
when we send him a dun for the other
2.00 he says: "Thunder and blitzen ! I
just paid you the other day." 'Sichis
newspaper life.' We will have the same
thing to do Shortly with a good many on
our books and hope such parties will read
the above and understand.

Tar Rivek Navigation Co. We are
requested by the President to contradict ru
mors which have been circulated by certain
parties to the effect that the steamer North
east would shortly discontinue her trips,
and to state that the company is more de
termined now than ever to keep the boat
on the river. In this connection, we would
also remind the public of the necessity of
sustaining this enterprise. The Tar River
Navigation Company -was organized to pro
tect the people of this section against exor
bitant freights. It is a home enterprise
and it is the duty of the people along the
river to sustain it. If the Old Dominion,
which is now making every effort which a
monopoly can to run the boat olf, is allow
ed to do so, they may look for unheard of
charges for transportation of their produce.
It is a matter of dollars and cents to them,
and if the present reuterprise is allowed to

such available chauce will ever be offered

Economy in Dress.
Editors Southerner-Enquirer :
The ladies of the Little Creek Grange
have concluded to purchase no other goods
except calico for the purpose of making
dresses. Thinking thus to economize.
A calico dress is neat looking ; and is by
far the most convenient, and cheapest dress
worn. ; It is made of cotton, therefore the
Southern ladies should be proud to wear it.
Cahco is generally considered a common
article, and many will not wear it on that
account ; but 1 dare say girls have worn
handsome dresses, when their fathers were
not free from debt. How independent to
feel that your dress is paid for, even if it is
Ladies, throw aside the idea of being
milliners, signs and merchants drays.
Woman wa3 intended to fill a nobler sphere.
So go to work with a set determination to
do all you can to assist your husbands and
fathers in curtailing expenses, and remem
ber that dress is not the only tiling that con
stitutes a lady, but a head full of practical
ideas, a miud well cultivated, graceful
manners, industrious and neat habits, an
economical disposition and best of all a pure
heart, which will beat as tenderly beneath
a calico dress as if robed iu a most delicate
Little CrecK Grange.

Engineer of the steamer Northeast, while
that steamer was within a few miles of
this place, was accidently thrown from
her deck, and would have in all probability,
been drowned, had it not been for the
timely arrival of the Cotton Plant, which
picked him up. It seems that the two
boats were racing, and had on full steam.
The Northeast, being in advance nearly a
niile, was going at such speed as to prevent
her from turning back and reaching the
unfortunate man in time, and immediately
blew four whistles of distress, and was an
swered by the Cotton Plant, which reached
our young friend, we are rejoiced to say,
in time to save him from a watery grave.

The inlluence of a good and holy life is
never lost. As the rippie on the bosom ot
the placid lake undulates from shore to
shore, so the savor ot a christian s i;ie is
felt through boundless eternity. Such an
iuilucuce has been left by William Bagley.
He was converted to God in Ins 1 1 th year,
two years thereafter he lomed the Metho
dist Episcopal Church. For more than 30
years lie enjoyed communion and inter
course with her people, exercising the tal
ents God had given him for His glorv, and
at last he sank to rest in her folds, beloved
by all who knew him. The prominent
points of his character were his deep and
abiding trust in Jesus as an all sufficient
Saviour, and such a bold had the religion of
Christ on his soul, that the weak points,
and defects of his nature were obscured,
and the beautiful loveliness of his life im
pressed all who knew him. His walk Mas
consistent, his christian principles well de
fined ; he w as quiet, polite, unostentatious ;
the theme of his every day conversation was
the mercy and goodness of God. The earn
est desire of his heart and the burden of his
prayers, Jwas the conversion of sinners, and
the prosperity of Zion. To those with
whom he vas at all intimate, the subject
of their personal salvation was tenderly, and
affectionately pressed upon them. Who
can estimate his worth? A Prince in
Israel has fallen; life's battle has been Avell
fought, and the faithful soldier of Christ,
Victorious, has gone to receive his reward.
