MY COUNTRY: RIGHT OR EDGECOMBE COUNTY, NORTH THE SOUTHERNER. THURSDAY, - - NOV. 21, 1867 Tbe Avalanche On the slope of one of the beautiful Swiss mountains stood a large cot tage, so shut in by the lofty peaks which towered round it, that its inhabi tants could hardly catch a glimpse of the blue sky. It was the dwelling place of a young couple and their only child, a little boy of four years old; and poor and lonely though it was, yet it was the abode of peace and lore; and no king was happier than Franz, when on his return from hunting, or else from a day's work afc one of the farms in the sheltered valley at the foot of the mountain, he met his Gutcben and the little Williolm hastening along" tlie" ' mountain-path to meet and welcome him, as soon as they heard the distant sound of his voice singing some lively hunting-song. Oue beautiful morning, Franz said to his wife, "I must go up the moun tain to-day. The sun is shining bright ind warm, and there is a good chance of finding game; besides, who knows how soon the weather may change again ?" fio, putting on his bunting-eoat and pouch, and taking his gun in his hand, he bade good bye, in a cheerful voice, to his wife ami child, and disappered up the mountain-side. His wife had no sooner lost sight of him, than she felt a strange sinking of the heart, as if she was never to see him again. She gazed out of the window on which there were man beautiful forms traced by the frost, but she tried in vain to overcome the fears which had taken possession of her mind, and she sat down agaiu by the fireside, with her lit tle Wilheliu pressed closely in her arms. She was soon roused by a rush ing, crushing noise, and falling on her knees, she exclaimed, God be merci ful to us, or we shall be destroyed by the avalauche." Scarcely had she ut tered the words, when it became dark as iniduight. The cottage was buried iu the snow ! The evening was calm, and the stars shone brightly in the clcarksky, when Franz descended along the homeward path with a chamois lying across his shoulder, lie had seen but little came. and had climbed many Kiddy heights before he got near enough to take suc cessful aim at the timed animals, lie hastened eagerly along, expecting ev ry minute to see his wife and child, as lie knew he must be near the spot where the cottage stood. At leugth he stop ped, and gazing on the masses of snow aud ico which surrounded him, cried, in a despairing voice, " My wife ! my child ! They are lost buried in the cruel avalaucli! May God help me and them I" With the first ray of light, Franz and a party of sympathizing friends from the nearest cottages were assem bled, with spades aud shovels, on the spot where he though his cottage had been buried, and commenced to clear away the snow, in hope to extricute Gutcben aud her little one. For three days they worked incessantly without any success. All then lost courage ex cept Franz, who never despaired, but continued to dig night and day, with out speaking to his companions, but praying inwardly to God, who gave him strength to persevere in spite of his grief and anxiety. In the meantime, Gutcben believed herself shut up fi;r ever in her subter ranean prison. Their stock of provi sion could not last long, and then she saw no prospect but death for herself and her little William, who often asked her when it would be morning, as by the light of the lamp she read in her Bible of Christ's miracles, and found comfort in praying that he might save them, if it were possible ; and if not, that he would soon take them to his kingdom in heaven. On the ninth day she suddenly heard the sound ef voices above ; and at the same moment Frauz heard his spade touch a hard object, which ho soon found to be the roof of his cottage. He quickly fasteued a long cord around his waist, removed a portion of the roof, and descended in ths little room, whare he found wifo and child safe aud well. And who can describe the joy of that meeting, between those who feared they had for ever parted iu this world? By the light of the now expiring lamp, they knelt and offered up their thanks and praise to God, who had so won derfully preserved them. When Gutehen once mors beheld the light of the sun and the glittering mountain-tops, it seemed to her that she had never before felt its beauty and splendor. The very fir-trees appeared to have decked themselves with fresher green ; and her heart was full of joy as she was greeted by the kind-hearted men who had so nobly assisted in sav ing her. Fran erected a cross to mark the place where hi3 former home had stood, aud a mother points out to her son, and tells him the story of Franz and Gutcben, and pray that he may emu late his courage and devotion.

It is of brown lthther, the toes are turned up; across tie instep is a broad strap with a small 1 ue how and steel buckle in tho centr ; the shoe itself, together with the strap, is bordered with a ru eho of bl e ribbon. The heel is very narrow, ; id curves in nearly to the ball of th foot. A'wal ing slipper is the "Soulier Louis Qi trtoise;" it is in scarlet lea ther, witiall black heels.

What a blessed thing it was for Adam and Eve that they lived before the law that is, human ordinance, net heavenly. Let us see what they escaped. In the first place, Eve had no mam ma to make judicious inquiries as to Adam's social condition, prospects or patrimony ; aud Adam had no 'govern or' to see that he did not throw him self away on a portionless girl. Neither of them looked particularly for nobility ol birth, and they could not oiuarrel very well about blood thought it mast be confessed that Ad am's family was by some short while the more ancient of the two. Ihen they escaped the solemn family coun cil convened at the office of tho fam ily solicitor,, to consult about settle ment. There was no awful piece of parch ment eorgeoisly engrossed, reciting that 'Whereas the said Eve, party of the first part, being about to be con tracted iu marriage to the said Adam, party of the third part, etc. and in tricate provisions of her separate pro perty to the trustees, parties of the the second part, to be holden to and for her sole and separate use, benefit aud behoof, for and during her said marriage ; and finally winding up with the declaration that 'to the said con veyance, the said Adam has entirely agreed and the same has ratified, cou firmed and consented to, and by these prent does ratify, confirm and consent to each and overy part parcel thereof' -and to winch awful document Ad am must set his manly hand ; Eve her trembling signature, and trustess. wit nesses, notaries, and what-not, their unintelligible scrawls. No, tbank heaven ! Genesis is not burdened by any accounts of ceremo nies that lead us to think otherwise than that, at the ripe age of fifteen minutes, Eve was seen by Adam, that she captivated him instantly, and they were married on the spot.

To bring out a moustache, tie to it a strong eord, twenty feet long, to the other end of which attach a heavy smoothingiron, and throw the latter from a fourth-story window. To procure a fair complexion, go to sea ia a crazy old boat, and the first gale you get into your face will be come white. 1 o get rid ot red hair, nom your head for a few -miuutes iu a strong blaze of ga3. To preserve your eyes, put them in a bottle tilled with alcohol. To avoid corpulence, quit eating. ' To conceal your teeth, keep your mouth shut. To keep out of debt, acquire the re putation of a rascal, and no one will trust you.

The defeat of the Republicans in New York is more signal than in any other State. Special reasons contri bute to this result. The license law cost the party thousands of votes in the large cities. The nomination, in dorsement and support of notoriously corrupt and venal officials in the inter ior drove thousands more from the support of the Republicans ticket. The insolent tyranny of the selfish and unprincipled managers who obtained control of the party machinery and worked it for their own advantage, regardless of the general good, kept other thousands who are at least devo ted to the Republicans from the polls. cause, away But the general result is due to Ahe same causes which operated in Pennsyl vania and Ohio. The masses of the Republican party are not content with the results of their party action or ths tendencies of their policy. The Thirty-ninth Congress did not meet their expectations. The results of its surcs have not come up to their mises. They have disturbed country not pacified it. They mea-pro-the have planted added bitterness and alienation between the sections of the Union, instead of bringing then together on the grounds of common interest and of common glory. Too much relative importance in national legislation, has been given to the negro. Not con tent with according him an equality of rights, special privileges and po litical powers have been accorded him. The question of taxation, the currency question, the material interests of the ISouth, the systems of internal revenue and the tariff, have all been neglected or made subservient co the question of the negro, while they are really the questious which most nearly affect the wenare ot the nation and the ha ippi- ncss of the people. Aud threats are made that this ex treme aud ill-judged policy is to be i pushed still farther. Confiscation is to be enforced upon the Southern peo ple. A division of the landed estates among the negroes is claimed as just and wise. Congress is expected to override State Constitutions and State laws, and to enact negro suffrage for all the States. Public sentiment throughout this State is prepared to demand equal rights before the law for all men, with out distinction of race or color; but it is not prepared to indorse these mea sures of extreme and reckless fanati cism. The Republican pr.rty halts when confronted with such a policy. The temper displayed by those who press it contributes still further to this revulsion. To carry their plans into execution they threaten to overriude all the checks and guarantees of the Constitution to reorganize tho Su preme Court, to impeach aud remove thfi President, to arrogate absolute and supreme power for Congress, and to plunge the country into chaos for years to come, rather than fail iu the accomplishment of their schemes. These things increased the distrust and apprehension of a very large portion of the Republican party, and contrib uted to the result which we have just witnessed. We regard the defeat therefore, as simply a lesson administered to the Urjuiliican party. Aeto lorlc limes. A Beautiful Extract. The fol lowing eloquent paper on time, is we believe, from the pen of Paulding: 1 saw a temple reared by the hands of mau. standing with its high pinna cle in the distant plain. The streams beat about it, the God ot nature had hurled his thunderbolt against it, yet it stood as firm as adamant. Revelry was in the halls, the gay, the happy, the young, the beautiful, were there. I returned, and lo! the temple was no more. Its high walls lay iu scattered ruin; moss aud grass grew rankly there: aud all the midnight hour the owl's long cry added to the deep solitude. The young and gay who had reveled there had passed away. I saw a child rejoicing in his youth, the idol of his mother, and the pride of his father. I returned and that child had become old. Trembling with the weight of years, he stood the last of his generation, a stranger amidst all the desolation around him. I saw an old oak standing in all its pride upon the mountain; the birds were caroling in its boughs: I returned and saw the oak was leafless and sap less the winds were playing at their pastime through the branches. ! Who is the destroyer !" said I to my guardian angel. 77 "It is Time." said he. "When the morning stars sang together for joy over the new-made world he commen ced his course; and when he has des troyed all that is beautiful on the earth; plucked the sun from his sphere; veil ed the moon in blood, yea, wheu he shall have rolled the heavens and the earth away as a scroll, then shall an augel from the throne of God come forth, and with one foot upon the sea and one upon the land, lift up his hand towards heaven and swear, by Heaven's Eternal Time was, but Time shall be no more."

It is allowable to mention the general notion of the forms and features of the two Apostles which has been handed down in tradition as represented by early artists : Paul is set before us as having stronglymarked andprominent features of the Jew, yet not without some of the finer lines indicative or Greek thought. His stature is diminutive, aud his btdy disfigured by some lame n ess or distortion, which may have evoked the contemptuous expression cf his enemies. Ills beard was long and thin. His head was bald. The char acteristics of his face were a transpa rent complexion, which visibly betray eu quicK cuanges ot ms leeiings; a bright grey eye, uuder thickly over hung eyebrows, a cheerful and winning expression of countenance, which in vited the approach and inspired the confidence of strangers.

Macgowan, estimates the loss of life bv the Taeping war at about twenty five millions souls; but intelligent Chinese I have conversed with say that full one hundred millions were killed or perished from starvation There was not much to choose on ei ther side. Whether Imperial or Taen- mg, the victorious party put men, wo men and children to the sword.

Tiic latest Parisian duel was fought between Prince Archille Murat au the 31ar'juis do Rouge.
