Death y Cni.onoi-oK.v, A voungman of about eighteen years, Francis AYatts, the son of a prominent phvsician of our county died suddenly in lU'ainston, on Thursday night, the -2 November, under the influ ence of chlorofon.i. 1'oor Frank had been subject nearly all his life to severe attacks of nervous headache. Chloroform was the only remedy that could be found to relieve him; consequently he had become so accus tomed to its use that lie would frequent 1 y administer it to himself, without the advice or ajd of a physician; and this sometimes when alone. L'po;i the evening of the fatal accident he exhibited, in the society of his young friends even more than his usual cheerfulness, until about nine o'clock, when the dreadful headache came on, and he re tired to bed. His brother, Air. John U. AVatts, the Druggist, with whom he slept, soon after left the room to watch beside the dead body of a friend, lie was not gone long. Ueturning sooner than he intended he found Fia ik lying too much in front of the bed. ishing him to make room, he put his ban. I upon him, and called out, uFrank, move fuither."' Dut there was no motion, and no response. Becoming alarm ed, he snatched the cover from the face of the sleeper. 77- boj mux th-ml f A hand kerchief well saturated with chloroform, still pressed closely to his nose, told the sad tale.

Thus, in only three Prus sian provinces, there were, last October, .35, 753 women and 78,750 children in a condi tion of misery and want, and it is believed that destitution to the same extent prevails iirthe other provinces of Prussia. The price of provisions is extraordinary high. If this be the condition of Germany, what must be that of France, whose territory has been in vaded by an army of more than half a mil lion of men. South Carolina Election Experience. The Hon. C. C. loven, who arrived re cently in Washington from South Carolina, claims that he has the strongest case of a contested election ever brought before any Congress. The Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune says: "He says that the worst election frauds in New York are not to be compared with those perpetrated in every part of South Carolina. The State election law, which was enacted last March, affords every facili ty to dishonest managers and supervisors of election. Hy its provisions, the Governor is directed to appoint in each county a su pervisor of elections, who, in turn, appoints three managers in each election precinct. After the polls are closed the managers are allowed to have the custody of the ballot boxes for three days, at the end of which time they must make a return. In many cases in South Carolina the managers of election were candidates for the Legislature or for county officers, and could, therefore, during the three days that the ballots were in their possession fix them to suit them selves. 31 r. Howen says that he can prove in many precincts the ballots cast by the people were taken from the boxes by the managers and others substituted for them before the count was made, and that when it was found that even then their opponents would not be defeated, they scratched the names of the latter from the ballots in other districts and substituted those of their own candidates. The only place in South Caro lina where an honest election was held was Charleston, and there it took place under the provisions of the new Fnited States election law. In 1808 .Mr. Howen's majority in Charleston was about J,GO0. This year it Mas more than 3,000, and yet, so great were the frauds in the country, that he was 'counted out.' He estimates bis rightful majority at about 10,000. He thinks the republican majority in the State is about 8,001). The majority returned is about 30, 000. The people of South Carolina are very indignant that they have no redress. m-ltt Or it Tkijuitouiai. Area. The area of the organized territories of the United State's, including Alaska, is greater than that of all the States which have been admited into the Union. There are nearly 1,000,000,000 acres of land in these territories, and not over 50,000 white inhabitants. In natural resources this territorial domain is richer than the area included in the States. The latter contain say 40,000,000 settlers, and and even these would hardly be near enough for neighborhood purposes. Uailroads will open up the country and bring population. What a magnificent country to carve into homesteads for 40,000,000 landless people ! 5' 1 1 2ml 3rd 4th 5th Gth it u r 1 1 ii . ... . ... ie laiiaiiassee r lormian, m allud ing to the rumor that Littlelield had turned over to Col. Woodiin, Agent of the W. N. C. li. li. Co., a million ami a half of Florida bonds, speaks t bus discouragingly of the pros pect of their early redemption by the State : "We are sorry for North Carolina. Twice she has been 'the victim of misplaced confi dence' first by taking to her bosom the most accomplished scoundrel and adventurer of modern times, and last by supposing that Florida Avill hold herself responsiblefor a dollar of the million and a half of bonds that same adventurer swindled her out of. A provision in the Constitution is fatal to their validity." Coincidence in the Lives op "Wash ington and Lee. The Leesburg AVash ingtonian points out several striking coinci dences in the lives of these two great men as follows : They were both, says the Wasb ingtonian, born in the county of Westmore land, each married a Custis, and their names were made immortal by the brilliant part they played in the two great American wars and when Colonel Charles Marshall, of Baltimore, who has been assigned the task of writing the biography of General Lee snail nave hmshed Ins task, both will have set. 2nd blooded brood ilare, C A Ashcraf t castor basket. 1st best brood Mare, colt by her side, J G Potts pickle dish. 1st best 3Iare, Dr Joe Graham waiter. 1st iK-st grade Stallion, premium awarded to Isaac N Alexander berry dish.

"Home, says UoIerston, in li:s sermons, "is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other. It is the place of eoniidence. It is the place where Ave tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defence, and where we pour out the ! unreserved communications of lull and con fiding hearts. It is the spot where expres sions of tenderness n;sh out without any j sensaiion of awkwardness, and without any dread of ridicule. Let a man travel where he will, home is the place to which "his heart uiitrnnuled fondly turns." He is to double all pleasure there, lie is to divide all pain. A happy home is the single spot of rest which a man has upon this earth for the cultivation of h's noblest sensibilities." Short Almanac for 1871.
