A SI'I.KNUID INDEX. From tht Uncnrillt HHai'JarJ. Iast week's issue of the Western Scniiimi I was a triple sheet, 12 pav;e, I'G colunms and illustrated. It is a splendid index of the rapid growth ! nml prosperity of Winston, a place which is destined to become the hir i gest and wealthiest citj in North Car I oHn. There re but few such news paper men as tne euitor oi the Senti nel and this last issue is not only a credit to himself and the town of Win ston, but is a credit to the iState in which such a journal is published. It shows a thrift and enterprise and pro gress of which any newspaper in the South might well ieel proud. fHOWri KEMARKAHLE ENERGY, From the WelJon Xeua. The Winston Sentintl of December 17th. was the largest newspaper ever published in North Carolina, except one. It was a triple sheet ami con tained a great deal of good reading matter. It contained also pictures of public and interesting buildings oi Winston and Salem, including the M. li. Church ami the college. The Sentinel is published by a young man, who shows remarkable energy and en terprise which should by all means be rewarded and we hope sincerely ti1I be. A TKILMPH OF SOUTHERN .IOUUNAL IS5I. From the Hickory Carolinian. Since the Winston Sentinel fell into the hands of its present owner and manager its improvement has been rapid and constant. Its last week's issue was a triple sheet, 12 pages, 9b' columns giving an illustrated review or the leading industries and business houses of the Twin City. This is a triumph in Southern journalism with only one e(ual that we know of, and shows what energy in the editors of fice and proper encouragement on the pait of those mostly to be benefitted hy such a publication. Sl'EAKS VOLUMES, From the lialccgh Chroni Last week the Winston Sentinel is sued 20,00 copier, of an Industrial issue of that paper, containing 12 pages and 96 columns. There are a number of illustrations showing the business houses and public buildings of Wiiis tov and Salem, together with a history of the tow ns, sketches of the most im portant enterprises and other valuable and interesting matter. It was issued at a great expense and speaks volumes for the energy and enterprise of Mr. Oldham, the editor and publisher. FOR OUR BUSINESS MEN TO HEAD. From the Ml. Airy Jfewt. The Winston fientinePt big edition for December 17th was a mammoth affair and it reflected great credit up on Mr. E. A. Oldham, the proprietor of that paper. - Surely the business men of the Twin City will now do the solid thing for the Sentinel. Truly Winstou-Salein is properly and abund antly advertised. ' AN ECLIPSE. From the Jiuthtrford Banner. The Winston Sentinel, published at Winston, N. ., by Edward A. Old ham has been all along a very excel lent journal, but the issue of the 17th of December eclipsed anything before attempted in this State, as to size con tents and appearance. The edition is a triple sheet, 12 pages, 9(5 columns and is exceedingly creditable to the energy and enterprise of its youthful" editor and proprietor. WORTH THOUSANDS TO THE CITY. From the Salisbury Herald. We which to compliment Winston on being the home of the Sentinel. The issue of December 17th is the largest paper and the largest edition the State Las ever known. This speaks well for the young and enterprising editor, and we are sure Winston adpreciases him and his valuable paper. The valuable impression this paper makei is worth thousands to that city.

The illustrated issue of the Winston Sen tint, issued last week, is a credit to the publisher, and is calculated to do the Twin-City great good. The Setitint t'j pages hear the stripe of the town.

The Winston Sentinel of last week was a mammoth edition of twelve pages. It was a history of Winston, past and present and formed a splen did advertisement for that progressive town. The performance was highly creditable to the Sentinel, the editor of which, Mr. K. A. Oldham, is certainly one of the most" industrious and enter prising newspaper managers iu the State. IN TIIE FKONT KANK. From the Ooldnijrt ilessengcr. The enterprise of Kro. E. A. Old ham, of the Winston Sentinel, deserves the greatest encouragement. He stands in the front rank of North Car olina journalism. The Sentinel of last week is a 12 page trade issue that does Bro.

Special Corrcsptndcnce of the Sentinel. Washington. Jan. 11. Congress returned last week from its Christmas vacation. It ought to have been re fieshed, but too many remained in the city and did what the' ought not to have done. Traces ot indigestion were plainly visible. The arrival of "Jim" Belford, who have come to do a little "glimmer of the gloaming," assists the imagination. But both Houses knew they could not dally another day. There is a strong inclination to hie homew ard soon as the appropriations have been made. But, against that, there are members who have pet ami important bills awaiting action, and Republicans who have action awaiting pet and important bills. In addition there is the member who will want to make a motion after the motion to THE RETURN GF adjourn has parsed. THE SENATE was struck by an avalanche of bills. Perhaps nothing was more striking than the bill to appropriate $1,000,000 for monuments to Lincoln and .Grant, respectively. Ber.ator "Vance present ed a bill to repeal a chapter of the Civil Service Act. Other bills follow ed, but the Senate, agide from adver tising a man named Brown, of Maine, seemed soberly inclined. The man Brown, who is now immortalised, is a political adventurer whose rascality Republicans have the audacity to at tach to the Democracy. The silver queston started the Senate on legisla tive research, its favorite pastime. THE HOUSE. has been agitated over the uncertainty of committee appointments. This vir tually prevented decisive fcteps. But the long call of States gave each mem ber an oppotunity to present his griev ance. Senator Logan had the keen wit and humor to present four bills at one blow. Think of each of the 325 Representatives following his exam ple! Mr. Seney did follow his exam pie, and went so far as to submit a bill repealing the Civil Service Act out right. Mr. Seney is braver than the angels. Risdcii Bennett once more opened fire on miscegenation at the Capital. Still, if the. House has con sumcd much time in hearing the titles of their grievances, the formation of the committees was in progress. Aside from the palpitation which troubled the hearts of those interested, all were kept, in long suspenee. The short re cess, upon the announcement of the committees, was taken with unusual zest. If.

The famous Judge has uitleil the destiny of the Capital s i oiiye Court man', many years. Many of his decisions have heen set aide, and others remain to day the source of wonderment. Judge Sneli tries each case on its merits; he has little time to p into the niceties of the law. Shysters is given an oppor tunity to take part in the amusement, but Judge Snell heeds their arguments, as much as any law conflicting with the merits of the case. Judge Snell is the law of Police. Court, and the Police Court is Judge Snell. Both are famous. But Senator Ingalls seeks, with one fell blow, to demolish Judge Sneil and all connected with him. The Senator would spread the Police Court out, as it wero, and dis tribute the duties between eight mag istrates. He seeks improvement. These magistrates are to be "learned in the law." If now, Senator Ingalls will distribute handsome saleries, per haps his ideas will be realixed. Far more generous is he in distributing five million dollars of the people's money for - A NATIONAL VSl V USilTY. fe-tT Vl?2f-I v It is barely posible that Senator In gals imagines the United States is jel ous of Johns Hopkins, or other bene factors. But it is barely possible that the United States is not. Senator In galls seems to writhe under the belief that bachelors of arts, and all seeking the highest knowledge, ought to be supported by the United States. In deed, Senator Ingalls weeps for these poor devils as he wept before the United States supported him. What is more, he asks for five million of hard cash to save these poor devils from ignorance. What they may suf fer unaided, is incalculable. True Senator Ingall knows that hundreds of poor devils, North, South, and West, are deprived of a common school education. But these poor lit tle devils are not bacholors of art; they only seek to grasp the vulgar science of life. He prefers to aid those who, having shown their ability to take care of themselves, deserves now to be sup ported by the United States. Senator Ingalls' generosity is as practical the edifice he would erect. THE MI). AND DEE. SHIP CANAL THE GUARDS. stands a good chance, if Senator In galls leaves some money in the Treas ury for practical objects. Last week Mr. Findlay re-introdnced the subject in the House. Aside from the strong support it will receive from the Penn sylvania, Maryland and Delaware delegations, the project has the hearti est sympathy of the Southern and Northern members. There is still in decision concerning the route to be selected, however. The Sassafras is the shortest, and the S. E. Creek. Queenstown, and W. . River route are shorter than the Chaptank, but the latter is the most practical, if not direct. ABRAM 6. nEWITT, iron Democrat, felt unequal to the task of shouldering two committees. No one had intimated that jhe should shoulder two committees, but Abrani S. Hewitt, in his aurony, detnied a warning necessary. Those who have watched Abram S. Hewitt's promis ing desintegration marvel over his ardent precaution. A quarter of a century ago Abrani S. Hewitt asserts that his eyesight failed. But Abram S. Hewitt was mistaken; it was his mind. Though now a sexagenarian, oculists have never afforded him much relief. The only relief Abrani S He witt can secure is at his iron works, or at ''Cooper Union," or any other place where the remnants of his mind are better adapted. The dogs and cats of the Capital disturb his sleep; Congress disturb his head. FRANK HISCOCK, whom Reed, of Main, cheated out of the Republiau leadership, bears his defeat gracf'ully. indeed, he is a grace ful man, bearing a head as shaggy as a lion's. But, like Reed, he is a jolly i old humbug, though he would humbug you in his own iniuiitible style. Both oi these Republican champions often, take the Avenue together. ULID AND REED can scaacely be confounded, yet oue must make a-distinction in using cur rent prenunciation. But Reed, of Main, is a Republican; Reid, of North Carolina, a Democrat, iteed is a big A YOUNG LAWYER received few tributes to his maiden ef fort at tne Capital. But few can have failed to notice the initial step of lhoaias M. iield, Esq. lhc case he undertook seemed as hopeless as it was familiar. Nardella, a poor devil of an Italian, without a friend, per haps, beyond a dessolute woman, had been arrested on charge of murdering a fellow-countryman. From the first, circumstantial evidence was so strong that the Italian's conyictien seemed absolutely doubtless. Certainly, no hopes of acquittal were entertained. But Thomas M. Field, daring to be friend this poor, friendless foreigner, stepped forward, and gave his maiden services. He has pressed the case te naCfbusly, in spite of the result of the first trial. And no matter what may be the outcome of bis services, the nobility of his maidsu effort niust ever redown to his credit, fat fellow reminding you of the jolly, old humbug; Reid, a serious, dignified gentleman, suggesting grace and kind liness. Reed posesses the lymphatic temperment; Reid, the nervous-bilious. Reed is clumsy; Reid is active. Reed lifts his arm like a blacksmith; Reid, like an orator. Reed has a twinkle in his eye; Reid, too. But Reed's be tokens deviltry; Reid's intensity. But the chief contrast is, Reed's face looks like a full-grown moon. Shadow. THE TWO GOVERNORS. A Classic Tale of the Good Old Times. From the Richmond Heforme. A great many years ago the Gover- nor oi isorth Carolina received a friendly visit from the Governor of South Carolina. After a real North Carolina dinner of bacon and yams, the two governors lit pipes and sat in the snaae ot the oacK veranda with a demijohn of real -North Carolina corn whiskey, copper distilled, within easy reach. " There was nothing stuck up about those Governors," says a North Carolina State historian, in the home ly but vigorous language of his sec tiou. " There they sot and smoked, and sot and smoked, every once and a while taking a mutual pull at the demijohn with the aid of a gourd, which they used as a Democratic gob let. The conversation between the two Governors was on the subject of turpentine and rice, the staples of their respective States, and the further thev got into the subject the lower down they got into the jug, anil the lower down they got into the jug the dryer the Governor of South Carolina got, who was a square drinker and a warm man, with about a million pores to every square inch of his hide, which enabled him to histe in a likely share ol' corn-juice, or other beverage, and keep his carcass at the same time well j ventilated, and generally always ready for more, while I ho Governor of North Carolina was a in ore cautious drinker, but was mighty sure to strike bottom at about the twelfth drink, like as if nature had measured him by the gourdful. Well, they sot and smoked ami argued, and the Governor of North Carolina was as hospitable as any real Southern gentleman eouM be, tor he ladled out the whiskey in the most liberal manner, beiiqj particular to give his distinguished guest three drinks to his one, r.nd guairing his own drinks with grea, care, for fear that if he didn't he might lose the thread ot his argument, and the demi john might run dry before the Gover nor of South Carolina should be reedy to dust out for home, in which case it would look like he had not properly observed the laws of hospitalyit, which would have been a self-inflicted thorn in his side for years to come, and no amount of apology could ease hi i mind or enable him to feel warranted iu showing his countenance to his fellow men, especially in his home district, where for generations it had been a main point with every gentleman to keep his visitor well supplied with creature comforts, and to hand him a good gourdful as a stirrup-cup when about to make his departure for the bosom of his family. Singular to re late, the cautiousness manifested by the Governor of North Carolina was of no avail, for f t one and the same time the jug went dry and the Gover nor of North Carolina, much to his subsequent mortification, when he learned the fact afterward, dropped off into a quiet sleep, while the Governor of South Carolina continual to keep on with his augu merit, holding the em pty gourd in his hand in close contig uousness to the demijohn, and wonder ing at the apparent absent-miudness of his hitherto attentive host, to whom after a minute and a half of painful silence, he made Use of but one re mark : 'Governor, don't you think it's a long time between drinks?' the re mark was overheard by George, the body-servant of the Governor of North Carolina, who knowing that there was something wrong, took to the woods, where he remained in seclusion for three days; but the Governor of South Carolina, receiving uo reply from the Governor of North Carolina, mounted his horse and rode sadly homeward with an irrepressible feeling at his heart that there was coming to be a hollowness in friendship and that hu man nature was in danger of drifting into a condition of chaotic mockery. The lieturn of tlie fiuunl. From the Guardtman. Military-loving London recently welcomed homo almost simultaneously the Scotland Battalion of the Scots Guards, the Third Battalion of the Grenadier Guards and the First Bat talion of the Coldstream Guards. These bodies of troops are the pride of the British Army and the enthusias tic public gave them a warm recept iou, being iu no wise blinded to their merits by the blunders of the Govern ment, Our picture shows the Gre nadier Guards crossing Westminister Bridge. This fine body of men came in for the lion's share of the ovation. Their disembarking strength number ed 11 officers, 34 non-commissioned officers and 605 rank and file. A few were left behind sick in Egypt, while no less than 13 officers and 123 men had previously been invalided to Eng land. Theer suggestive figures convey some idea of the waste caused by war, ot so much from actual fighting as from climatic influence. . BLOCKADE RUN NING. SOME INTERESTING REMINISCEN CES OK THE WAR. Zeb. Vance's Visit to Fort Flsher-- "Coraa out of that Hat!"- Butler's Famous Powder Ship The Drown ing f Mrs. Rose Greenhow. Col. William Lamb in a recent ad dress delvered before the Northern Club of Norfolk, says ; We sometimes had our fun in camp, Zeb. Vance visited us not long after his election as Governor of Nerth Car olina. He wore a black stove pipe hat on the side of his head as he came sauntering through the fort. It was the first appearance of a beaver in the garrison. He had not gone far before from behind the barracks came the command, "Come out of that hat !" "I see your legs '." "Come out of that hat !"' and presently concealed voices in different directions had caught up the cry, "Come out of that hat!" I see pour legs !" "Come out of that hat !" Good-natured Zeb. rather enjoyed the joke, but it was not the reception I desired to give the Governor of the State, and I had the drums beat to quarters and the battalion formed for review, which effectually squelched the fun. Next evening, at dress parade, an order was read, threatening any sol dier with condign punishment who ."hould call out to a visitor to "come out of his hat." Everything remain ed serene and juiet after that order, despite the visits of several clerical gentlemen to the garrison with rusty stovepiH' hats, until one nioraing I espied a bow-legged blockade running captain, who had got safely in during the night, coining up from the beach with a great shade hat on his head, which looked for all the world like an inverted coal scuttle. He was about j opposite one ot the barracks nun I when a sepulchral voice growled out, t "Stav in that hat! Airainst orders to j "come out of that hat!" "I see your legs! Stay in that hat!" which com mand was repeated along the line with startling emphasis as the bewil dered Britisher made haste to reach headquarters. I .'urrendered at dis cretion, and never issued another or der on the hat question. m: butler's ihwukk uoat. Sd!p of you have hetird of Ben Butler's powder boat, which we be lieve wi's sent against Fort Finher, to blow the bottom of the ocean out, submerge the lort, demoralize the gar rison and stop blockade running.

He had heard of the terri ble destruction for many miles around by an explosion of guepoirder at Frith, England, and he concluded the safest and quickest way to capture Fort Fisher was to blow us al! up, or at least to scare us to death. Admiral Porter's fleet had appeared off Fort Fisher December 20th, 18(34, but stormy weather prevented the impending attack. On the night of the 23d the steamer Little Hattie ran in safety through the flest frora Nas sau, and I was talking to Captain Lebby, who had landed about mid night, when from several posts on the ramparts came the cry for the Corpi ral of the Gaurd, and the Officer of the Gaurd reported a steamer on fire about oue mile from the fort and not far from shore, I went upon the par apet and saw what seemed to be an English built blockade runner on fire. Captain Lebby thought it must be the steamer Agnes Fly, which left Nassau with hia vessel for Wilmington, and I so telegraphed General Whiting. I watched the fire until after 1 o'clock when I went to headquarters, a one story brick house, formerly used by the light-keeper, and laid clown on my lounge, hoping to get a little rest be fore the anticipated engagement next day, but I had hardly lain down be fore I felt a gentle rocking of the house, which I would have attribut ed either to my imagination or to ver tigo, but it was instantly followed by an explosion, sounding very little louder than the report of a ten-inch Colunibiad. The Corporal of the Gaurd was called for in every direc tion by the sentinels, and the officer of the iraurd reported the blcwing up of the magazine of the vessel which had been on lire. I went on the parapet, but all was silence and darkness, save the roar of the breakers and the phosphorescent gleam of the surf as it laved the shore. 1 telegraphed General Whiting, at Wilmington, ofrbe explosion, and re tired to rest. In the morning the ex plosion was a subject of conversation among the officers, and some had not even been aroused by the commotion it created. I thought so little of it that the only entry I made in my diary was as follows: "A blockader got aground near the fort, set fire to her self and blew up!" I was indeed surprised to learn from prisioners captured on Christinas night, after our defeat of Butler and Porter, that the explosion was that of a great floating magazine intended to demolish the works and destroy the garrison. The fleet had retired twenty miles off to prevent any injurious ef fect to the vessels. The concussion was destinctly felt in Wilnington, luranlv ml tea tffl tttlll in t.ha i-mintrv around, but its effect on the fori gad 1 garrison was a miserable failure. My theory is, that the steamer was afloat in deep water when she blew up, and that had she been hard and fast ashore the result would have been very se rious. THE DROWNING OF MRS. ROSE GREEN HOW. A writer in the Norfolk Ledger, gives some interesting ircideuts of blockade running into Willmington, N. C, during the war, gives the fol lowing account of the death of Mrs. Rose Greenhow, widow of Robert Greenhow, a native of Richmond, and former translator of the State Depart ment at Washington. The writer says : "You must not suppose these block ade running incidents were always ex empt from tragedy. This same steam er, Night Hawk, was indirectly the case of one of my saddest experiences at Fort Fisher. You have doubtless heard of the famous female spy, Mrs. Rose Greenhow, a beautiful widow, whose fair face decorated the 8100 Confeder ate notes. She had been of great ser vice to the southern cause, and had passed the lines to and from Washing ton a number of times, and had been to England and France on an impor tant mission, and after leaving her two young daughters at school in the latter country, was returning to the South t'l'a Nassau in the Bristol steam er Condor with important news from the French Court. The steamer had passed the blockading fleet safely and just before dawn was approaching the bar, the range lights having been set in answer to her signal. The pilot descrying the Night Hawk lying ashore on his starboard bow, imagined hr a blockader, lost his head, and ran the Condor on the breaker. "At day light the Federals, seeing her ashore, sent one of their steamers in, which fired several shots at her, but the blockader was prompiy driven off by our long-range guns. There this a heavy ica on, and it being im possible to communicate with the steamer by boat, I went to hcadquart ters to await the raising tide, expect ing a calmer sea upon its flood. Pre sently a diminutive looking specimen of huinanii v, bareheaded, iu his shirt and drawers wl ilea were wringing inc, and wet, stood shivering before with his teeth chattering, announced most ludicrously that he was Maj. Tait, of the British army. I could hardly suppess a laugh when he informed me that he was of a party who in attempt ing to leave the Condor, had been up se and barwly escaped drowning; that he feared Mrs. Greenhow was drown ed, and that Prof, llolcombc was completely exhausted and in a criti cal condition. "This was no laughing matter, and sending the British Major to the hos- iiifal, 1 listened to the shore. There . faund the soldiers had rescued Prof. HolcomlKS and several sailors besides the Major from a capsized boat, but Mrs. Greenhow, who had embarked with them, was missing. I sent the Professor, who had been away on a diplomatic mission for the Confedera cy, to the surgeon, and had diligent senrch made tor the unfortunate lady. Her lifeless body was soon found, the cruel waves having cast it up on the Cold wet sands when the flowing tide came in. It was a sad, a touching sight; that graceful form, that lovely face, with the iudomitable spirit flown beyond all human recall. Tenderly we took her up and gave her over to sympathising women's care, for the dead heroine was too sacred a charge for a soldiers' camp. "When the sea subsided the com mander of the Condor, a Victora crossman and an officer of the British Navy came ashore. The brave sailor was almost unmanned at the pitiful fate of his passenger. He told mo that when the blockader approached at daylight Mrs. Greenhow, fearing capture when so near her journey's end, insisted 'upon going ashore, al though he protested against it, assur ing her of the protection of the iort aed the great danger of the sea. She insisted, a boat was lowered, but the passengers and her crew had hardly gotten in, before it was upset by a breaker and drifted beyond help. She was caught under, while the men crawled up on the bottom of the boat and hung on until rescued. Oue of the soldiers brought me a small satch el containing one hundred sovereigns, which had been suspended around the poor lady's neck, and which may have helped to drug her down w hen the boat upset. "I met Capt. Hewitt, of the Con dor, at a dinner party in 1879 in England. Ho was an Admiral, and had been knighted for gallantry since our war, and he is now among the most distinguished admirals in the British Navy, having recently been sent on an important mission to King John of Abyssinia." Mr. Davis, of l'A Dorado. From Hie Kcio York Sun. Mr. J. II. Davis, a funny gentle man down in El Dorado, North Caro lina sends us a letter, evidently com posed with great labor and signed with a beautiful pen flourish, in which he declines "taking any further inter est in your seiito-Democratic sheet," on the ground of an alleged lack of "consistency" in the Sun's "comments on ex-President Hays."
