Gm THE PLOATIXCJ BALLS ) It KXlCKIiE WASHING 31 A CHINK. Tlie subscriber having purchased the Right of the above Machine for the Counties of Cumberland and Harnett, is now ready to furnish such as may be lesirous of obtaining a Right. The machine is simple, both in its structure and operations, and should any portion of it fail, can bet easily and speedily repaired by any person having the use of tools. I do not claim for this machine more than what it is able to perform with that description of labor which almost every family is able to supply, without at all interfering' with "tbe ordinary duties. In the first place a child 12 or 15 years of age can perform all the labor, after having seen it operate a few times, and if the direc tions are adhered to, will do as much work in one day as three or four women in the ordinary way. and the work will be much better done. Below will be found a certificate from those who have purchased and now have in use one of these machines ISHAM BLAKE. April 12, 1S5G. 93-tf Fayettevii.i.e, N. C. April 9. 1S56. We. the undersigned, having purchased of Mr lsham Blake one of the above machines, cordially recommend it to the favor of the Public. It washes very- rapidly, and the work is much better done than is usually done in the old wav, and with less wear to the Clothing. It far exceeds our expectations, and has only to be seen in operation to satisfy the most skeptical of its utility and economv. We have no doubt of its being generally used wherever introduced. D. G.

We rnmniend the following as worthy the attention of the fairer part of our-readers: Extract from a Idler of the late Wpt. Wiri tq his DaughtEf. "I Vant to tell you a secret. The way to make yonrlf pleasing to others, is to show that you care for thetu. The whole world is like tlie miller at Mansfield, 'who cared for nobody no not. he because noboav eared fotf him., And !le whole world will serve xasSisaU: oiht, therefore," pee that 'yon do care for . them, " ' by showing thenj wligt Sterne so happily calls ' the small sweet courtesies oflife' those cour tesies in which there is no parade, whoso voice is too still to tense, and which manifest them selves by tender and affectionate looks and little kind nets of attention giving others the preference in every little enjoyment at the table, in the field, walking, sitting or standing.- This, is the spirit that gives to your time of life, and to your sex its sweetest charms. It constitutes the sum total of ull the witchcraft of woman Let the world see that yonr first care is for yourself, and yon spread the solitude of the' Upas tree around you, in the same way, by the emanation of n poison which kills all the juices of affection in its neighborhood. Such a girl may he admired for her understanding and ac complishments, but she will never be beloved. The seeds of love can never grow but tinder the warm and genial influence of kind feelings and affectionate manners. Vivacity goes a great way in yoting persons. It calls attention to her who displays it; and if it then be found associated with a generous sensibility, its exe cution is irresistable. On tha contrary, if it be found in alliance with a cold, haughty, selfish heart, it produces no further effect, except an adverse one,. At tend to this my daughter. It flows from a heart that feels for yon all the anxiety that a parent can feel, and not without this hope which constitutes the parent's highest happi ness. May God protect and bless yon. Your affectionate father, nil. Wirt. Packing Eugs to Keep. One of the best ways of packing eggs to keep long, is to pack them in charcoal dust, in boxes the longest diameter perpendicular, set them in a cool dry place and turn the boxes over as often us once in two days. Try it, but do not set the boxes where they will be forgotten and the turning neglected. Where this attention would be too great an inconvenience, it will be found to an- ... . .1 f swer an excellent purpose to pact uie eggs in large earthen jars or crocks, and to fill them witii lime-water wndc rr ponrinsc wnter upon quick-lime" and letting it' stand a day or two' covered; it may be decanted without great care to pour tt off clear. The lime deposits lroui the solution upon and in the pores of the shell and keeps the eggs perfectly sweet for a long time, even though tlie yolk settles down upon one side against the shell. A Reamxg People. Yesterday morning we counted, in the cabins of one of the Brook lyn ferry boats, niuty-six gentlemen, (all in fact who were there,) and out of that number seventy-two had papers reading. Jow, we will venture the assertion the same proportion of reading travellers, men who were determined to read as they ran, cannot be counted on any like occasion the world over. We have had an opportunity to know a little of the character of the English uud French in their daily busi ness railroad and steamer excursions, and never witnessed anything like the 6ight. But it might have been produced partly by the cheapness of our papers, yet we are the greatest newspaper readers on the globe; no doubt of that. As IIoxest Flag. An old Californian ar rived in San Francisco, the other day, fresh from the mines, and dropped in at a Republican Club Meeting. A patriotic individual had the floor, and among other good things said, "we go in for (rce speech, free soil, and Fremont!" " n your free monte," said the miner, getting np in disgust, "that's what broke me' the last time I was in San Francisco." He soon brought up at a Democratic Club, and looked in to sec what was the row. Over tho president's chair was a banner, with an inscrip tion painted on it. "Buck and Brcck" read the" green one. "Well, that's honest, anyhow," said he. "If that flag had been hang up when I was here last, I never would have bucked agin the tiger in the world." True Californian. A Good Hit. The following is a good hiS at the follish railroad and steam boat "votes" that are going the rounds of the Fremont pa pers: "A vote was taken in p. railroad car out west recently, in the following manner: A ! t... i r. i,: 4. Jjuciwmm man iwt iiuui ma auul, uiiu requeieu all who were in lavor oi Jj remont to pull their boots off." JNot one supported the great path finder! He then requested those favorable to Buchan to "keep there boots on," which all the passengers did, without the slightest hesita tion! The decision was unanimously for Buch-' auan. The Knickerbocker is accountable for the' following: "A friend of ours, who resides in' North Pearl street, went a fishing the other' day, and among other things that he hauled -in was a large sized turtle. To enjoy the sur-' prise of his servant girl, he placed it in her bed room. The next morning the first thing that bonnced into the breakfast room was Biddy, with the exclamation of 'Bejabers, I've go, the devil.' 'What devil? exclaimed the head of the! house, feigning surprise. The bull bedbug that; has beer, ateingthe children for the last month.
