There is a certain point at which for bearance ceases to be a virtue- end .this po ut netn8 to have been reached by some of our citizens iu a certain portion of town. During the past few weeks we have heard complaints made as to the conduct of some negro meu and wenches occupying a late ten-piu alley near the lliver. The authorities have" been applied to, but as yet have ("one nothing to abuto the nuisance. We dislike to place sueh matters bef ore our readers, but justice to the families in that neighborhood, ooui prising some of our most respected cic tzeus, and their wives and daugh ters, demand that we should make this public expose of a most outrageous . uuisauce which it is the duty of. the authorities to remove. This Alley has been converged into a regular bawdy House, filled with tl e must abandoned negro wretches ol both sexes who reud-T day and night hideous with their obscene and druulr cn ribaldry and no virtuous female in 4 he vicinity dare walk out without , being liable to have her ears filled witn epithets that would even bring to Mush the deuizecs of Five Points in New York. This is unbearable and must bo remedied in same manner. Will the town authorities deiga to look into the matter? biP Kiai T' iii We trust that none of the reader of the Sj utekbxb will skip or over look this paragraph, lor it ia impos Bba to say how soon any one may not ba nadir the uacasalty of using th means whereof it treats.

Our colored correspon dent, Joseph Weaver, when he )ennod his communication to the Soothebjies last week, had no idea what a commotion he would crsate in thewateis of the radiea pool of iiidjecomba and we are also satis fied he did not imagine that in such a short time and upon such a hurriedly prepared article, he could have nossiblv arisen to such prominence in the estimation of his iei'ow coun'ymen.

After a lapse of more than two years, last week found us en route to, and, after a most disagreeable ride upon one of the muddiest and heaviest roads in the Stata, safely landed in our. native town Williamston. '.-. - It was with pleasure that we noticed mark ed signs of improvement along the line, especially in Martin county, having counted no less than 25 new residences for the dis tance of some fifteen miles in that county. Notwithstanding the wet season tne farmers have accomplished much work, and all Were busily engaged in preparing compost, clearing ont and repairing fences, fco. Williamston has materially changed its appearance since our last visit Many valuable improvements have been introdu ced, but we regret to say, that many of the oia aeiects still remain. The erection of a fine store by Messrs. Simmons and Biggs has added wonderfully to the good appearance of M ain street, while the large -and commodious establishment of air. o. ts. Uasseii nas Deen rejuvenated ano handsomely improved. The late fire has left a great yawning chasm in the very heat of the business portion of the town, but we uere glad to hear that the owners ol the burnt district, Carstarphen and Watte, in tend soon to ereot large brick stores in the place of the small wooden edifices consumed. Mr. Jos. I), riiggs also contemplates build ing a handsome store on his corner. Should These improvements be carried out the old town will have certainly put on a new and much needed dress. VV'e chanced in the place on Saturday afternoon, and could we have forgotten that drive of thirty miles, could have easily imagined ourselves upon the "Grab All" of Tarboro. Main street was filled with large numbers of drunken, boisterous negroes, just from the swamps, their pockets filled with the pro coeds of their weeks work, who crowded about the stoves in every store, and appear ed, as they evidently were, master of the situation. In that section the colored ele ment are certainly the moneyed element, and we cannot Uame each merchant for en deavoring to get his share whi eit is going but we do think that, as a body, they could somewhat improve upon the style in which their customers see proper to Rpend their earnings. A little less whiskey, a little less noise and "cussins," and a little more res pect for the whites in their respective estab lishments would be gratefully appreciated by the more respectable portion of the com munity. We counted no le-s than five bar rooms within an area of 50 yards. We were glad to observe that the Sottth kbker still remains a prime favorite with the good people of Williamston, a large ma jority of whom are its sub scribers and pat rons. Rail Road M fsm akagemevt. "Uner the above captivn -ear, neighbor the 2,'n quirer, last week thusly touched up the manasement of the Rail Ruad officials at tnis plioe: "On Wednesday night the engiue ran off the track through the careltssness of the switch tender. After much delay and inconvenience to the passenirer, causing them to remain in town over night, a start was attempted on Thursday morning, but after getting some two m.'les on the road, another delay wa-t caused by some of the machinery setting out of order, causing the ears to return to Tarboro for repairs After a delay of eighteen hoars a frsh start was made, and we hope the waary passengers have at last reached their de stination."

On Thursday last Falling Run iu this county was the scene of a, most distressing occurrence, by which a most woitliy young man, and an ex-conf'j j erate soldier, named Augustus Savage, cams to an untimely end. The circumstances seem to ihe a follows: Ab-u' 11 o'clock Savage, driving a wagon with two mules, the rroperty of Mr. Mark B ittle, attempted to cross Falling Run, which was flooded with back water from the river. The current proved too strong and the wagon was overturned and the mules drowned. About this time negroes working near the creek heard cries, but supposed they came ironi other workmen, across the stream and pai d no particular attenliefl to them. It is now supposed that they proceeded from the unfartunate.tc.as.. who had divested himself of most of .hie clothes, and having hold of some object and being unable to swim, was-calling for help. Nona coming he must have frozen to death and dropped in his watery grave. He was tonnci on Friday monomer, but. on account of the depth tnd force of the water, was not taken out until the following day. An inquest was neld on Monday by Coro ner Godwin and the following verdict render ed; '-That Augustus Savage did come to his death by being accidentally drowned in Falling Run while attempting to cross. " Provokiho. We are satisfied that every business man in town will join us in the declaration that it is provokingly annoying to receive the mail as it at present arrives. it is due here about three o clock, but for many day3 in the past month it has not been opened until after dark. It disarran ges all business calculations, and seriously interferes with the public generally. Wherever the fault may be, whether in a poor engine and too much work, or in difference to public wants, it should be at once corrected, and the sooner the better.

Killibrew, in - he chair, A discussion arose as to the reason ot the small attend ance at the regular meetings, in which several members eKpressd themselves. In want of a regular nubjeot for dis cussion, the society talked upon general matters pertaining to the farm, embracing the cultivation of wheat and oats; the making of brick; the best manner of com posting, and the most efficient means of preserving Irish Potatoes, &c. The sub ject for riiexMjssh n at the next meeting wiil be; "Tke best method of Seeding Com." Another Horror The Princi pal once "Well Known in these Parts-Theology, Phy sics and Rascality Combi: ned. ' : ' ;' ' Many readers of the SouThjhioeb have, no doubt, a perfect remembrance of ,a cer tain Methodist Divine,, named N. A. H, Goddin, who figured and flourished in this section some dozen years since. He was considered a "wheel-horse in the pulpit, and was generally .reckoned a "stunning" preacher. . .-: It seems that after awhile he tired of the ministry, and turned hia attent on to med icine in the city of Richmond. In the prac tice of that profession he has been engaged for several years, and is the inventor of "Gentian Bitters," He has, however, got himself into trouble, and is now committed to jail, charged with aiding and abetting in producing an abortion upon tha person of a Miss Jennie Young King also well known as a resident of Tarboro soma years since with being privy to the death of herself, and of her premature infant, alleged to have been begotten by her cousin, named "Wesley M. Brock. :;' As many enquiries have been made con cerning the case, we give below the follow ing abridged statement taken from the New York Herald: He, Goddin, is about forty to forty-five years of age, rather good looking but some what greasy of dress., and the mild est man nered man that ever entered a court room. He was onoa an eloquent Methodist divine, and has the outward manners of an insinuat ing religious exhorter. Except to the critical he would pass for a model of piety and hon esty. But his record is alleged to be bad. He was at least onue married, and he had with him in court a grown son. It is said (and y nr correspondent has been so infor med by an astute police officer to-day) that he left his wife and subsequently fathered SOME CILDKIN or COLO. Recently he has been making himself con spicuous as the companion of a very lovely looking yoong lady, with fine figure, long blonde ringlets, languid ejesand graceful symmetry, whose father perished in the last great freshet. THR ALLEGED JBEDCCXm is as was stated in Court to-day by his coun sel, ".own cousin" to the deceased. He is a man over forty yeaTS old and, superfici ally observed, of commanding appearance. His profile is good acquiline nose, fine newtrils, full brown beard, ondinary fron tal and a good deal bald upon the posterior of the head. He is a machinist in the em ploy .of a firm, the head of which is Presi dent of the Cky Council, and has hitherto borne an unblemished character. THE VTCXnt, Miss Jennie Y. King, was the daughter of parents in moderate circumstances, general ly industrial, but I apprehend not altogeth- r strictly particular. She was neither young nor extremely beautiful. She wan in the bloom of hea th, about twenty-five years old. of medium heigth, quiet disposi tion, bright blue eyes, audacious address and captivating manners. She has been long known as a m"st coveted and free heartei county belle-, "but in an evil hour gave wav to evil persuasion, and hence her cfcath. THE CTBCTTM STANCES are t once peculiar and mysterion. De tectives O'Dwyer andDabney were handed a memorandum by a party known to them, but whose name they refused to divulge, which ?avo them the cine to the discovery, and from its indication they were enabled to ar rive at the facts so far known. It appears from the testimony adduced that: when the woman King suspected herself pregnant she journeyed to Goddin, here in Richmond, nd asked that the evHienoos of her folly be -destroyed, which he declined so he siys and she cannot contradict his s iy'ngs now. At least it is certain that the child was pre maturely bom; that when born it was alive, that in accordance with his own acknowl edgment, he delivered her of the premature birth, put it in a box, nnd -handed it to Brock; that subsequently such infant and box, w'rth a rock attached were found in James River: and that he now confesses that, upon reading of this discovery in the city papers, he at once suspected whence the riwr nrgosy cam;). When arrested by O'Dwyer, the detective, he (Goddin) was seemingly quite communicative; but soon it was discovered that he was endeavoring to reverse his statements. He had been to the residence of the parents ot the deceas ed, and it at first would seem wonderfully cruel that those parents should attempt to shield crime now. There oan be no -moral doubt that TWO BEINGS wkrs mttrdemb. The child was quick when born. The mother was particeps to her own death, and in the shielding of home shame, without a weed of mourning, wilhouta wry face,, with out a sign, the mother and sister of the dead one appear as defenders of the alleged cous in and seducer. It appeared in testimony that Brock and the sister and mother of the deceased went in a oirriige to a house on Leigh street, kept by colored women, and that there the deed was done. Not, indeed, the fiist act of the dismal horror, but its ma turity was there effected. The proprietress of the establishment, Miss Susan Hill, is a witness for the Commonwealth. The de ceased, she testifies, was brought to her house by the accused, who were accompa nied by the mother and sister, Lottie, and she objected at the time, but out of pity ac cepted her afflicted boarder. One of Su san's inmates a Miss Lizzie Gleason, cor roborates these facts, and her modesty and intelligent statement went far toward the dethronement of the pride of Pocahontas' progeny- They, with another of the same profession and oaste, are agreed upon. FASTENING THE MORAL GUILT upon the parties accused. But the worst part of the transaction was the procuration of a surreptitious burial for the deceased, as alleged, asweilasthe manner of dispo sing ot the intant, both, unhappily, contra ry to the ordinances of the city, When the undertaker desired to know who would pay, Brock said, "Cash." Audit was not until the scent became partially public that the burial certificate was surrendered, and then queerlyso. When the body was exhumed the living, but not the dead, bones did ouake and the certificate said that Miss King died of gastritis, while the autopsy de clared it was of peritonitis she died. Be this as it may, the matter is undergoing in vestigation, and in the hands of the law for the present it must remain. VERDICT OF THK JURY. The Jury, in the case of Goddin and Brock have rendered a verdict to the effect that the deceased, Jennie Young King came to her death by medicines administered by Goddin at the instigation ot Brock, and both parties lutve been sent on to be indicted by the Grand Jury of the Hustings Court, bail having been refused. . .

Raleigh, N. C Feb. ?0, 1872. Editor Sqothprner. In the last issue of the SouTHERUa you publish ed "An" Act in relation to apportion ment in the State Senate," in which the counties of Wilson and Pitt are as composing one Senatorial District. I respecthfully submit that this ia a mistake. Pitt stands alone, as here tofore.and Wilson is joined with Nash and Franklin. Wilson and Pitt were put together in the original bill, but it was changed before the bill passed its final reading. The decision of the Supreme Court ic case of Clarke vs Stanley haa given dissatisfaction to the legal profession here, and they are open ia their dc nunciations of the judges who have so shamefully prostituted their pos tions to the basest part aan purposes.

It did not appear who was to be the judge of that. The re ports were promptly followed by a bill to extend the suspension cf the writ of habeas copus beyond the present restriction. Wade Hampton and Mr Ker shaw, who were alracked by name by Senator Edmunds a few days ago in his place, as backers of the Ku-Klux, which statement was partially or whol ly eodorst-dby Senator Scp'fTof Peon sylvania, have voluntarily come promp tly to ashmgton to deny tne charge, and request to be put on the stand and examined in regard to what they con sider an unwarrantable impeachment of their persona character. A Rousing Eater: A most mar velou? feat of eating, and one that seems almost incredible, but which is vouched for by a dozen witnesses, oc curred in this plaee a few nights since. Oue Tom Weaver, colored, a rather small man, and seemingly of ordinary eating capacities, was induced to eat a good "square meal" at Noah Hicks . some other party agreeing to pay seven ty-five cents for as much as he could eat. The following amount of eatables were actually devoured by him, and upon a wager, will be eaten again at any time some hour and a half being occupied in the arduous duiy; 24 pounds of bam. , 2 pounds of sausage, 1 pound roast meal, 3J dozen eggs. 1. pound of butter. 51 bisouits. 21 cups of coffee.- 1 quart of oysters.

Diseases that pro ress rapidly to a crisis are not the only ones to be dreaded. Can ker or dry rotdoes not blast a tree as sud denly as a strekg of lightning, but unless arrested it destroys it as certainly; and in like manner chronic debility, although it does not Kill with the swiftness of yellow fever, is as sure to sap the spring, of life eventually as any acute disease, if not checked by invigorating medication. There is something inexpressibly touching in the spectale of premature decay. Lan guor, pallor, emaciation, depression of spirits, and a distaste for exertion, are 'ts ordinary symptoms, and they should be promptly mt by tonic treatment.

By these means the re pair oi the physical structure is effected and its health and vigor restored. In no class of diseases nas the beneficent opera tion of the Bitters been more marked and striking than in those characterized by general debility and nervous prostration. Ladies affected with these ailments find in this most wholesome of all tonics and cor rectives the safest and surest means of relief. It -is strong to restore and power less to injure.
