Joseph Wheeler has been continued in his
pastoral duties over the Church at Tarboro.
We feel confident this action will give
univer al satisfaction to his Church and the
public generally.
Mr. IVheeh-r is an earnest and zealous
minister, and during tl.e past year, by his
uniform course of gentlemanly deportment,
has gained a large number of warm friends
in this community, who would regret to see
liim removed to another tie d of duty.
The Poo ;. Poverty is nt ad times the
most inexorable of tyrants. His chains, se
vere and galling, are particularly so in tho
cold and dreary months of winter. Thon it
is that the exclamation of the faithftl Squire
Sauqho Pauza that he, that is poor is desti
tute of everything, seems to be most fully
realized by them; for they are at times de
nied the genial warmth of the sun. We'
have in our midst a large number of that
kind of persons, those who are not simply
in unorosperous circumstances but who
even lack wliat is indispensably necessary
to prolong their unhappy existence, food,
clothing and fire. They are connected to
us by the tiss of humanity and made the
objects of our merciful consideration by
the commands of Christianity. An awful
responsibility will be incurred by us if we
give them not to eat when hungry, naught
to drink whou thirsty, or clothe them not
when u:iked. They appeal to us in a stid
sm dl.but eloquent voice. Let us attend
to them at onee ? Their case will not admit
of delay. Let those who are posessed of
this words goods, and living a life of luxury
seek out and administer relief to the suffer
ing, and, besides, e would suggest, that du
ring the api-roaching season of-gavety that
one or more balls or public entertainments
be given and the proceeds arriving from the
s:iui8 be applied td charitable purposes.
Then will our pleasures be productive- of
good, and "jnauv will rise up and call us

A Good Ide a. The Sheriff has been direc

all wrong Mr. Moore has never beeu a
Judge aud Mr. Martin is a resident of Martin
county. As Almanacs deal almost wholly
in prognostigntions and are nearly entirely
worthless lor the present, perhaps its author
meant to speak in Juturo. If so, it may all
come true, for Mr. Moore has, we think,
some judicial aspirations, and Mr. Martin
spee.ks of moving somewhere, and might
come here. I aking it in the latter sense,
and it would be uucharitable to suppose that
a pamphlet prepared with such great care
ecu d contain so great au error, we egard it
