Whereas, The pi evalence of the credit sys tem of subscription has been found to work serious loss to publisher! who have adopted it; and whereas experience proves that the cash system is the only and afe one ; therefore, " lie it tic solved!. That the cash system bo adapted as far as possible, and adhered to as alosely as practicable. JV. C. Press Asso'n. In oar colums to day will be found an article headed, " The Bivouac of the Dead," and to it we take exqui site pleasure in calling the attention of our readers. "We also request our Northern co temporaries to give it space in their columns, so that men of all classes can read its sentiments and draw from them the. conclusions they just rjr merit. . We ask- this of our North ern brethren, because we desire the people of their section to see that though we are rebels, .we did not bury our chivalry and magnanimity with our hopes and our flag. We wish that the same spirit which prompted the "Mobile Ca dets " could have pervaded the " Grand Army of the Republic," for we sincerely desire to see the unity of our country established on a peaceful and lasting foundati n. "We believed we were right, during the war, and had it continued our sword would still be drawn in de fence of our native land, but when the resources of ' our country were exhausted .and. our armies competed to surrender, we accepted the posi tion in good faith and have truly kept our parole, aad, having done that, we never could have been indu ced t believe, until the act was committed,, that. our captors would 0 far forget the just dues of a brave and (as they term us) erring people as to prevent: their paying a beauti ful and holy tribute to their dead. "We believed -the orth wroag and unjust in waging war against us, but we never supposed, for a moment, that only dishonest men were fighting us, for we claimed to be honest in the course we pursued and that claim would have never been entitled to respect if" we had not, and were not willing, to concede uprightness on the park of i ur adversaries. The man who claims to be the only honest man in the world, is either an idiot or a r- gue, and his followers, in our humble opinion are equally so, and,' therefore, if the "Grand Army of the Republic " pro pose to set themselves above a'l mankind and claim that they alone must be excepted by mankind as honest, brave and the saviours of their country, we must simply con clude that they are really fit sub jects for such asylums as are used for entertaining the " elect " of the idiotic schools, until their senses re turn or they are reliered of earthly trials by a voyage across the " dark river." The Hero of the Lara Beds. Having succeeded in capturing ' he Modocs and thereby putting an end to the war, General Davis will be the hero of the hour. His name will resound from the lava beds of California to the cod fisheries of New England. All that will keep his name immortal is that he allow ed Captain Jack to slip through his fingers after be had him in his power. General Davis has a fame in this section of the country. It is not one thatz a warrior would envy ; but such as it is he should have the ben efit of it in this the hour of his glo ry. . He was an oflicer in Sherman's army that swept through this Sta'e io 1865. Yhe her he commanded a corps or a division we do not recol lect, nor is it material to know. As the army of the North approached the line of Chester county it came upon ihe home of Mr. John Doug Ins, in Fai field county. A courier came to this house and demanded a room for the headquarbers of Gen. Jtff. C. Davis. He brought with him a carpet, which he put down in the room, and other comforts and conveniences for his commander. Sooa afterwards General Davis ar rived aod took possession of the quarters thai had been prepared for him. Mrs. E. , the daugh ter of Mr. Douglas, and wife of Rev- T. W. E , who was residing in ihe house and taking care- of her aged father, appealed to him to pro. tect the property on the place. He assured her that he would' do- so, and told her to pack up the articles that she deemed most valuable aid deposit them in the room that he occupied, and that he would be per, sonally responsible f r their safety.. H le dd fOj packed up in trunks evfrrvthtv f f he damned pf fa cial value, and placed them, in, his room. When he left the. house she went into the room, to recover her valuables and found. that the trunks had been broken,, open and every hing worth carrying off had been taken away.. This is the hero of the Mdoc war. These facta can be established by witnesses whose credibility no man, would dare gainsay. Interest Payments. From the subjoined communica tion, made public by the Sec nd Auditor through the press of Rich: mond, it will be seen tha- not only has provision been made f r the pay ment of the interest on the State debt accruing on the 1st of July next, but also for meeting the un paid balances of interest due in Jan uary and July last The people of the State will gladly receive this in telligence, and it will doubtless re bound to the enhancement of our credit at home and abroad : Commonwealth op Vroorsu. Second Auditok's Office, Richmond, Jane 7, 1873. Notice is hereby given that the in teres' n the public debt for 1st July, 1873, as prescribed by the act of M arch 13, 1873, will be paid at this office on and after 1st July next. The sterling interest will be paid in London by Messrs. Baring Brothers & Co., agents. And the board constituted by the act of March 12, 1873, to consider that question, have determined that the unpaid balances of interest for January and July, 1872, as provided by the act of March 10, 1872, shall be paid also on and after 1st July next Where stock has not been funded, the old bonds or certificates must be presented here, in order that the interest paid thereon may be stamp ed on such stock. Th- se who do not apply for their interest in person, are requested to send orders through parties outside of this office, as official duties for bid my personal attention to remit' ting money or acting as attoney for conversion or transfer of s ock. Asa Rodgeks, Second Auditor. Look Out. The Southerner would call atten tion to the following facts and changes that will take place after Juae 30th, 1873:' 1. Franking privilege, abolished. 2.

Editor So utherner : The longer I live the better I can appreciate Sol oiuon's feelings when he said, ' Disap point uent sink the heart of man, but the renewal of hope giwe consolation " The very week that I anticipated that "mountain trip 'intimated in my last communication) I was summons. to Salisbury to show why that man who proposed to pav me (?) $1,0C0 in bankrur toy should not be disc1 arged Accordingly I. appeared in the Sup - nor (,'onri, and objected to the dt charge of the assignee, upon the ground that he had not performed the duty assigned him, viz: Sell the prop ertv filed in the schedule, valued at $1,800. Mine was the only debt "proen," yet it is argued that the property is exempted f om execution under the homestead act. The debt was contracted prior to the homestead liw, and judgment obtained soon after, consequently I hold that my judgment is a 1 en on the property. The Legis lature's definition, and Judge Dicka rul n? to the contrary, notwithstand log, I know but very little about law, (wish I knew leu about bankrupt laws!) but common aeiise and Guv. Vance both tell me "I am right." As soon as this ease can go through the Circuit and Di atrial Courts to the U. S. Supreme Court (if "the power of the judiciary is mob exhausted before then) we will hare a "test case"' from North Carolina. The next disappointment that I met was a contemplated visit to the Sun day School Convention in Charlotte. The cause of which was the overflow ing rivers, at tha". time seemed to threatt n the destruction of all the cot ton gins, mi h. etc., that were near their banks. On Saturday, 10th May, I- sat two brurs cm the hank of the Catawba river, and watched a mill in which I have 83 500 interest, to see whether it was- going off with- a cotton gin that loft about 8 o'clock that more in , rr ftty to snpply thnt amount of xxx flour, that it bas for several years. At about 12 o'clock. Mi. the water be?an to fall, and seeing the mill still apparently fixmXr fixed an liaJounda t.inn of rock twelve feet, high, I. con sideredsthe "crisis" over, aodwas soon .fter on "mf wav home rejoicing. Several, were in company with me while- watching those "turDuient waves," and when a part of a wrecked bridge or house would" come roiling over the rocks w,ould. exclaim "Isn't that erand !" Well. I- confess, that. although I can generally see many beauties about the "sparkling. Oataw ha " I couldo't sae them. that day till- after tha water began,, to fall ! The destruction by the freshet wi s verv great on tie Uatawba and ladkm rivers, but from accounts in the Southerner, I don't think they were ns great as on the lr and Koanoice. The "bottom" lands have been re planted, and ciops are lookipg very well, but. the most, or Hie "iertuieis oo the uplands, have "gone glimmer ing." As rur (mutual) old friend B y, in Wiiliamstoo, would, sa.y, "I told those fejjows about buyiogso much so'jalled. fertilizers, and n' w some are wishing that they had heeded my ad vice." "Bought wjt" is said to be 'the best," but I thiuk it will coat some farmers io this county very dear this year. The Southerner came to me hst week a little ah. a I of time, bur no sooner than I wished, to. see it, for it is always a welcome visitor to me. I was very glad to see in it that Edgecombe seems determined to be second to oo county in this State in tier early and liberal donations to the Oryhan Asy lum at Oxford. Such investments are "treasures laid up wht-re moth aod rust do'h not corrupt;" and I had rather have $5,000 in that Asylum than to have VanderbMta souu.uuuiu the Southern University.

On Friday last, we learn from the Mobile Register, the graves of the Federal sold era in the National Cem etery, esr Mobile, Ala , were decora ted with becoming ceremonies. During the services a beautiful bouquet ol flowers, arranged io most exquisite taste, the blue and- the gray being blended, was sent up to the mound with a ard which read as f Hows : The Mobile Cadets, of vhe Confederate Army Honor tbe Memory of those who, though their enemies in war, were men and brave enough to do their duty. The tribute to-the memory of the federal dead, coming from a company of Confederate so'diers who have made for themselves an undying record for bravery and gallantry on. many a hard fought battlefield, was duly ap preciated and received io tbe spirit with which it was intended, as an oliv branch of peace, a harbinger of good will and friendly feeling between brave men who fought against each other, but are willing to bury the hatchet in the graves-of their oomracks In acknowledging the testimonial a fed eral officer said : "It is a graceful offering of peace and good will, and I proudly enibr .ee the epporunity for the speechless dead' around us, and io behalf of the r surviving comrades, to grasp the hand that brought it in like token of our good will and friendship. It is tbe ol ive branch oarried on an errand ol peace. Let it be accepted in a suitable spirit. Let the gallant cadets who hear this receive our homage for the.r daring. Let their fallen comrades si. ep the sleep of the heroic 'Though our enemies in war,' let the manhood aod courage which honestly led tlem to defend a cause they believed just be appropriately lemen bered and honor ed. Finally, may this happy, touching delicate aud peaceful episode in our ceremonies mark an era ol better and kinder feeliue among as and indicate tbe day and occasion when we mutual ly agreed tin t the passions and animo sities bora of the war should be con signed t tbe obambers of forgetl'ul ness.' Let the Grand Army take a lesson from this episode. RICH SCENE COURT. Judge Cloud, under a Cloud: McGillUQes far Dim 17.0 copy the following account ftom the Wins tin? Sentinel of an extraordi nary scene in Court. It ia rare read ing for those hot days : Contempt oje Cobbt-A scene oc- c, urreds it Stakes Court, oo Tu- sday evening of the first week, of court, that was not down on the bills. " At tbe fall term, 1872, of Stokes superior ciur', a negro mm, noted for his impudence, insulted W. D. Mc Gill, and sought shelter in the court house, where Mi Gill followed him. aud gave him, a beating iu the presence ol tUe judgo, and was fined $100 for cop tempt pt foqrt. McGill was indicted tor aq assault in the same case, and was fined last week $t)Q,by his honor, Judge Cloud. After having been pun is bed by a severe fine for 'contempt ouce, McQill WuS licensed at the i.eavy fine imposed on him tbe- secoud 'linij, and concluded be would give-hia honor just cause to go for him in regular heathen Chinee style, and on Tuesday eve ing durinjj. the sit ting of the court he yfalted! upon the stand and took ' a seat by the side of Judge Cloud, and leaned over and spoke in a" low tone to him and said: "'If you was not an old man I'd pull your nose, yqu 4 d old scoundrel." The Judge, who was expecting a friendly message, was taken aback at what he heard, and. thinking he might have misun derstood him, asked him what he said, and McGill repeated it. The Judge tihen called lustily for the sheriff to com ? and arrest him and take. him. away, saying he was drunw, and, ha4 threatened, to pull the court a, iaoB,e. McGill very coolly got. up and spoke to the person g in court room and said it was untrue that he, was drunk, hut he. did " hat d, d old rascal (pointing t loud) that he wuld pull his nose." The-sheriff by this time had reach ed the scene of action when the Judge ordered him to carry McGill to jail and keep him there sixty days. As McGill descended the stand he turned to Cloud and said, "You nor any of your party are honest," where upon the Judge repeated his order of sixty days in jail. By this t me the sheriff was descending the stairs leading down out of the court room, and McGill fired back at the Judge and said: ''111 get even with you and your party yet, you d d old scoundrel." The "Judge then had McGill 'Tought back and examined the statute to see wha.t was he w tent of his po erto punish ia the case, and finally ordered die sheriff 'o confine McGill in jail thiry days, fined him 82i0, and to remain in jail until the fine waa paid, and to give bond in the sum of $1000, with good security, to keep the peace, with all the citizens of he State. The sheriff, with a.gUAxdt then start ed Lo ial itIVU prisoner, and had gone some distance, with him,, and when they arrived at Taylor s Hotel, where a negro was holding McGill s horse, he pulled out a pjs tol. and told them fcj stand back, that he dic not intend to go to jail, and called t the negro to bring him his horse. As the sheriff nor any of hia guard were, armed nd knowing McGill to be a despera e man, 'hey concluded that it would be an unhealthy business to attempt to stop him, and he mounted hia. horse and rode slowly out of town. We were present in the court house and witnessed the whole 'cene, and the above is a plain statement of the whole affair without comment. We hear thai the Judge had a bill brought against Sheriff Gen ry for allowing the escape, flnd that the trial of the case has been removed to this county. The Successor to tlie Papacy. The Voce della Verita of Rome uuu laics mi article in reply to stutements made by some Italian and foreign newspapers, especially the Memorial Diplomatique ot. the su'jeqt of the Conclave of Cardinals, which will be I eld for the election of a successor to Pope Pius IX., io the event of the Utter's demise: The Voce della Verita say i Foreign powers conld never claim as a right the power of excluding a ndidate from elections; this privi- 1 ge was mere a concession tutd; ly the Cardinals in favor of sou e Catho lic sovereign to ptotoct the Church. At the present time this power be longs to no Government, for all Gov ernments pr-ofess the principles of religious equality. Io any ease, non Catholic Governments will not have to be consulted, aod erylHtte heed w II be given to acy aJvioe from the lame Republics of Prance and Spain. Wkh regard tj the possibility of a foreign Ordinal being elected, the article says : "The Pope must be an Italian, be cause every one likes to have at home a f erson who can spe ik the samalan uuagev and. because the Pope is the sovpreig" of a S'a'e which the Italians themselves wMI certainly restore to him. Theie is a German ardioaL but the unity of that conry is suffi cient to prevent him being chosen Among the French Cardinals there are several very worthy u.en, but behind them there is Avignon to lrighten us. The two illustrious Austrian Cardinals certainly do not dream of being elected to the Papacy ; nor does their Gov1 ernnveot push forward their claims. Tbe secret of all the noise which has been about this matter ia that the Italian Gevernmeot would pre'er to see a foreign Pope nominated, in order te- increase the difficulty of restoring the temporal power, and alienate from the Pon'iff the sympa thies of the Italians; but a Pope bailing from tie Spree, tbe Setne, the Danube or the Thames, would encounter enormous difficulties, and we ourselves, with the utmost go d will, would be- ia danger of not an. derstandicg him, and of not being understood by him. Remarks o& tha Orphan Asylum 1. Some say change the name to "Orphan Hume." The. name ought to be changed, if a. change, would enable the institution to do more good ; but it is the property and; the daughter, of the Grand Lodge, and parents geuer ally name their own. children. The Grand Lodge may exercise ifs sover eign pleasure in the premises. 2. Borne insist on moving the Asy lum to a large city. Suppose Ksjeiyh had a bBndred.aereacrQiv.oed wjihsuch a grove, and wade valuable by such a building. Would the property ever be offered to ipdigent onphana?. Let us try to belive it, because There is nothing half,go swee.t in life A lpve's youug dream." 3- Some urge the collection of an endoraeqt. Many persons know not what to do wth their wealth. It would be wise and good in them to endow the Asylum. Perhaps some one will. But the officers of the in stitution are authorised to collect con t ributiona as they an needed and not for future generations, 4. Some advise monthly collections All contributions are voluntary. Some prefer to give weekly, qtheri monthly, others annually. Let the people exer cise their liberie. But tbe children cannot live ou pkdges. Newspapers are requested not to announce any contributions until they shall reach some officer of the instution. go far no one baa. heep paid to collect. Those who send contributions in kind should know what is needed. Meat, bread, pillows, mattresses, bedsteads, chairs crockery, new cloth of any kind, sheets and blankets always usetul ; but cast-off finery, fancy articles, cakes and candie are of very little use. 5. The expenses of feeding, t-J thine and teaching each child is about $4 a month. Xlie fif'y children now prei ent will cost about 2400 a year. Thos who wb to .support one orphan may send S4 each mouth. Furniture costs about 810 for each inmate T,here is room for alaat 00 children; but the number will be limiteJ by the amounts contributed for thejr support. 6. Odd Felows, Temperapce Socie ties, and churches of ai deppminq,tioos may contribute to thw institution. There is no d'scrimioatioo against any clas9 The mo needy are the most Wf'come. Masons control the Asylum, simply because they happened to Qn the property; but they have no desire to monopolize its b nefits. 7. Those who wish to visit the Asy 'urn may do so on the 24th of June. Tus,carora Lodge and other Lodges will celebrate that day at the Asylum. Dinner will be prepared lor 500 per sons Addresses will be delivered by Rev. B. Craven, D. D , of Trinity College; Rev. George Patterson, of Wilmirgtoo, linn. Robert B. Vance, of Buncombe; Hon. Ed, G. Reade, of" Person; IJon. M. W, Hansom, of North ampton, and other distinguished ;-penkers. The cost of trspsportation will be ae follows : From Raleigh to Oxford aod back, $3 2Jy from forest villa to Oxford ad back, 3 45,; from frank viton to Oxford and. hqk, 32 85; from Ridgeway to Oxford and back, $2 65; Iroru Warreolon to Ox ford aud back. $2 90; from Macon to Oxford and back, $3 15; from Littleton to Oxford and back, J3 60; from Gas 1 ton to of.-rii aoq tacit, ? 1Q; from Weldon to Oxford and back, $4 75. The North Caroli na road will sell re turn tickets for one first class fare Other roads will be requested, to. do the same. 8. If any one sh ill wish to suggest improvements in the management ol the Asylum, let him send his sugges ti.ms to the Superintendent They will be read and considered, even wh o there are good reasons tor disregard" ing them. J. H. Mills. We tajce the foil wiog from the last issue of the Washington N. C. Ex press ; ' Seme twq months since Mr. Joseph Congletoo, who resides in this place, employed. a woman living a short dis tance from town with h r father, to come and nurse his mother, who is an invalid. The woman, Sarah Lee, is about 25 or 30 years of age, aod has bt-eo performing her duty at Mr. Con leton's very promp tly, no one noticiog anything unusual about her. On last Tuesday morning she complained ot having a slight colic, aod after taking some raudanura and champhor retired to her room up stairs to lie. down. About dinner hour some one called, at her room to inquire how she felt, she refused-to open the door at first, but finally induced1 to do so, when it was ascertained from her appearance that she was quite sick. Mr,: Congletoo, on being made aware of it, immediately dispatched Dr. McDonald to. attend her. Oo exainintitiou the doctor knew she had given birth to a child, and asked her tor it. At first she denied it. bat the doctor went to looking and; soon foupcj i( in. a trunk. It was, ol course,, dead, and she says it was bore so, and- it was very probable it was. An inquest was herd oyer the body of the child on WedjpesdayT and a ver dict tf "death from wilful, neglect" was rendered. "Warrentoa Fomale College.
