WEDNESDAY, Sept. 2, Wftl. It won't do an editor much good; a western papor says: Get your appotita on the whet stone of imagination for the coining oyster. . An exchange says when a New Jersey - mosquito. .. tackles an unripe dude it begins to re alize that if all flesh is not grass, some of it is very green. In a private latter from the editor of tlvs- paper, he .says, there came near being frost in Indianapolis, Ind., last Thurs day night. Hence Jack the Nipper may turn up among us at any moment. Prof. E. W. Kennedy has returned from a trip to his old homo in Tennessee, and will open the graded school ; next Monday, and the indications are that the coming session will be a prosperous one; there will be a large number of pupils in both the white and colored schools. , About the same over here; the Halifax (Va.) News says: It is now thought, from informa tion received from all parts of the country, that the tobacco crop has been severely injured by the recent wet spell of weather. "The wild lire" or "frog eye" has made its ap pearance, forcing the farmers to cut their tobacco in a green state, in order to save it. Heavy shipments of wheat are passing over the North and Western railroad, and in addi tion to the grain produced along the line in Virginia, there is the promise of a large movement from the West via the recently established "Cumberland Gap Dispatch Line." One contract for 300 car loads of Western flour over this route has jmt been made. Lynchburg Ad vance. - The summer months h:ive been going fastcrr-gone, until today, the 2nd day of Septem ber, and we shudder as we think how so very little has been accomplished in road working. We are inclined to think that some overseers have been taking a liip Van Winkle nap. We have no fault to rind with the hours dragging no; Oh. no! They go wiiii lightning-like rapidity, and The Rk toKOKa's mission is and will be to keep up with the road nys tom. ' The summer is over; boa.it not thvself. O depizen of the citv. that thy summer has been inexpensively passed at the home cf thy country relative; for even now that relative hath said unto his wife and his son's wife, and unto his daughters and his daughters husbands, and unto his cousins, even to the third and fourth generations. Lo! the winter approaches, and our friends will to pbmsed to ee us in his city home, where theatreR, lectures and uch I'.ke vanities do biguile the time. Let us flee unto them, every ne. And they will come, sure; verily, they wui have their revenge. A man hot a thousand mile away says he wants a wife who has sen ne enough to sUnd still and not howl when a kthhs hopper i crawling up her stock ing. An old friend standing bylold him that it was a lottery business, and gave him the fol lowing amusing incident as an illustration of the chances in lot teries: A dealer in lottery tick ets had purchased one hundred ticket in a horse lottery as he had done before in the hope of selling tho tuuw among his large circle of acquaintances, hut fate was against him, and, try as he would, he could not succeed in disposing of hii un fortunate purchases. Nobody seemed desirous of winning a horse, presumably upon the hypothesis that the animal would probably "eat his head off." At any rate the entrepre neur had to be content with hi bargain, so he sat down and awaited the result of the draw ing with all the sang froid he was capable of assuming under the depressing circumstances. Judge his surprise when tho of licial list of winning numbers was published to And that one of his despised numerals had won for him a "beautiful white horse," In high idee he set out for the depot with a halter in one hand and the winning num ber in the other, prepared to re ceive his prize, take it homo in triumph and display the same to all those of his friends who had declined to embark in the speculation, but tho ways of the world are mysterious, and thosaof horse lotteries peihaps more so man any other, for up on claiming his prize the tin lucky winner was doomed to experience the most sad and bitter disappointment. Heauti fulof form, blameless of color. of tho most virgin white, and ueyond criticism in every par ticular, was the beautiful white horse. There was only one thing about it that its owmi could object to, and that was its inanity, for, sad to relate, it was made of planter of Paris. T-- ..I .,1 n , n ' ' Who Is He? . From Silnday's Danville Re gister: The Weekly Mail of yesterday contained the follow-" ing: "We believe we have found the meanest man. He is a Danville merchant. He is al so a 'pillar' of the church. Ev ery Saturday morning when the Mail comes out he calls a news boy to him and takes a paper. Instead of handing a nickel to the boy, he sits down on a box or barrel in his store, looks over the paper for from Ave to fifteen minutes, hands the paper back to tho boy and 'guesses he won't take one this morning.' He re peats the operation a few times until he has read the paper through. If the church is sup ported by many such 'pillars' it must b m danger of falling.", ' Yodiik hokum. Saturday morning, at BraHHfield, on the R. & D. about six miles from town, th-ee, colored boys broke into the section master's house, where the section hands kept their dinners, and stole their provisions and some of their wearing apparel. A Mr. Ham ilton is the section master, but Willis Moring, of Durham, was acting in his place. The boys were chased to Morris ville and on to Carey, but were not caught. A CroalcltiK Nucee.ii. Put it down for a fact that the rain crow knows bis business. The goose bone mar fail, and the mackerel sky. and the red sunset, and the raiabow in the morning, and even the aching of corns aud twitr.hing of rh matic limbs, but whim the rain crow tunes hinharp in the early morr ing and croaks his early melancholy croak, it will rain insideof twenty-lour hour just as mire as preaching, find a great deal sooner than gome preaching.

ASH IIKKOiC. The Xohlf Acta of Man t'ndrr !lm- Tlie dutinte rented and noble acts of our county man, Col. Benehan Cam eron, in the Third Creek wreck, have lieen read of throughout the length and breadth of tlie State. A cool bead in a great calamity w a great gift, and on this occasion the Col presence of mind was tlie cause of xevenu uvea twine saved, it was a icrand piece of work for humanity The Kaleigh Chronicle speaks of him in this way: Col. Benehan Cameron is the hero of the wreck. The public is familiar with his heroism and presence of mind, and he is entitled to all the commendation and reputation that he lias received, ins wisdom, bis cool ness and bis active operations to save his fcllow-auffcrors cannot be spoken of too frequently or in terms of too warm praise. Tlie Italeigh Ncw-t)bsei eranys: The action of Col. Benehan Cam (mil on the occasion of the wreck seem to us now to be perfectly not ural just what he ought to have done. But w hen we consider the cir cumMtancea that surrounded him, we feel like complimenting him for hav lug such seli'imNHuHMon, such eool in, siieh judgment in the trying and novel Situation he was placed ill v e tec! like applauding the powtwur of such a stock ot admirable common sense." That Trrrlbl U.mwiney, Judge Kmw'll, whoaotne tint ago, mimc that the jig wiut all up with the lb-puuiicnn in ttit Mate, ctirw-d out the negroes and went into hi hole, comes out occasioii.-illy for an ainne. He was in Washington last Satur day, and this is the way the Tost re ivrtshiin: "I want you Vi slate." he said, "that no third party ticket can win a solitary Hoiithern Mtate from it allegiance to lcm'ieracy. If LA, Polk, himself a North Carolin ian. should be the third pnrtv uoml nee fr the lYiwdencjr, 1 i!pdge you my word that he would not get enough votes in bis own tftate to till cigar bi, even if lh4 were all counted.

This wonderful prodigy will appear at tftokes Hall, Friday night, Septem ber 4th. An exchange say b of him: He is just as much of a musical and imitative wonder as ever. John O. Bcthuna, the son of the old mas ter, and raised right along with him was his manager and handled him on the stage, explaining all his work in the program as tho. man with illus trated lecture dencril(08 the sce nes his tereoptican spreads before his audi ence. Homo timo ago Mr. Uethune died.- Since then Tom does his own descriptive work. He repeats word for word, emphasis, reflection, and all, the speech his master used to make, and then goes on and does the work as though he had been simply talked about instead of talking about himself. Ho is an idiot, and as black as negroes can be produced. He was given but one talent and that the gift of music. , That one gift has made Blind Tom since early boyhood oneof the wonders of the world. "Blind Tom" is about 40 yearsold. He lire with his mother in New York City and travels under the care of Mrs. Beth line, widow of his former owner, in the South."
