The Goldsboro Messenaer says The semi-annual meeting of the East ern Medical Association wai held in the Humphrey Honse on Tuesday, some tuenty-six physicians being in attendance. Unavoidable circumstan ces prevented us from reporting the proceedings; we If am, however, that the session passed as off pleasant and harmonious. The Association ad journed on yesterday, and the next meeting will be held at Wilmington. Tfpeirrnpblcal. At the regular aunual election of officers of Typographical Uuion No 82. held last evening, the following officers were elected to serve for the eusuiEv tJv months: 8. O. HhJI, Prr-PHlnt. i A. W.

He is a clever fellow and a gentleman in every sene of the word and we only hope that he will make as many friends in his adopted home as he leaves behind him in his native city. n&ib 01 Kir liaoM. We regret to learn of the death of Mr. 8. P. Cause, an oia ana mgmy esteemed citizen of this place, which occurred at hia residence here on Friday evening. Mr. Gause was s native, we believe, of Brunswick county, but had resided in this city for the past thirty yeaa.'ie having been 55 at the time of his death. He was an honest gentleman and an upright man, true in all of the relations of business and of social life, and bis death will be felt as a loss by many outside of his own family oirole. Report off thn Grand Jury. The Grand Jury of the present term of the Superior Court have sent in a report to His Honor, Judge McKoy, relative to the condition of the County Work House, Poor House, and JaiL They state that they found the Work House neatly kept and in good condition, reflecting much credit on the contractors, Messrs. Mathis & Co. They recommend, however, that they be direoted to furnish the prison ers therein with two shirts and two pair of pants, each, of the usual con vict material. Notb. This is what the report ears, but it is hard to understand what the female convicts will do with the shirts and pants. The Grand Jury also speak in very favorable terms of the condition of the Poor House, and give muoh credit to Mr. Soott, the keeper, for the man ner in which his duties are performed. Of the County Jail they give a very unfavorable report, representing it as badly kept and very unclean, and in need of general repairs. Thy re commend that the keeper of the Jai 1 be required to give it a thorough leaning. The Fire Last lYIfftit. The alarm of lire last night was lo eated in the Third Fire District. It was found to proceed from two ad joining stores on North Water street, between Princess and Chentnnt, occu pied, the one by Mr. J. Welleraa fire broke out beneath the partition be tween the two stores, and is thought to have originated from the furnace of a drying machine in the rear of Mr. Weller's establishment, although this furnace was built on brick work a foot and a half deep. There was a strong draft of air undr the floor and the fire burned so stubbornly that it was found necessary to call on the eng nes, when a stream of water was thrown in and the flames were suppressed. The damage to the building is very slight, the principal injury having been to air. wrrau stocfe, wnne nor tion of whi-h were damte- d bv water A few hundred dollars will probably cover everything. Another Jail Ir 1 1 vrv. Jutiee VaiXmrioge. while engaged JLnursday afternoon in trying a case received information that some of the prisoners conflDed in the jil were about to break out. He immediately adjourned his Court and, c tiling to his aid some of the officers at the Court House, hurried to the jti) wnere ne xouna mat lonr prisoner bad escaped, altbongh they had not then had time to get clear of the premises. A seach was made aud al of the ei-capd birds wre found and taken back to the jail, where they were securely hand-cuffed and locked up in tneir cells. The names of those engaged in the attempt are John Soott. Jack John son, George Owen and Levi Pope, all colored. i'hy got out in the same manner as did those who escaped last xuesnay, Dy raising one of the stones of the floor of a cell and dropping through to the basement floor. The Jailor has been changed, and guards were piacea around the" building last nigm, so as to l mutate anv further attempt, should snob be made. Cotton Tie A ie A Home In ventlon. A new cotton tie buckle, invented ly Uapt. YV. P. Elliott, of this city was patented on the 1st inst. It is said oy ait wno nave seen it to be one of we best tninirs of the kind ever in. anted.

"I don't think mnch of your judg ment, if j u call him a vicious looking dog." was his answer. "What breed is he?" "He is a cros of several breeds." Yes, I hhould think from the way he vhowed me his teeth that be was au cross. " 'Come. come, you must not run down my "Nap." He has been, too good a trie nd for me to listen to any thing but praises of him. " "What did he ever do that was par ticu aly fnetidlj?" I inquired. "Weli, I'll tell you what 'Nap did; he saved me fifty thousand tloiiar during the war times." I was about to give an unbelieving cbnokle, but a glauce at Alick s face told me that he was in earneat, so I begged for the story. "It was about the middle of the war," said Alick, when I was Treasurer of the Grafton Drilling Company. Our office safe was as unsafe as a pine box would have been, and I disliked to leave a dollar in it. There were sev eral burglaries about the place, all of whieh were skillfully planned and exe cuted. "One night our office was visited, the safe pried open with wedges, and the oontenU carried off. The burglars fouLd but a few hundred dollars, but the worst feature of it was that they had hit upon a night when there ought to have been a large amount of money there. We had received a large cash payment the day before, but instead of trusting it to our old safe, I had taken it home with me. "We wondered if the burglars had any knowledge of this payment. If they had, then they must hve extror dinary means of gaining intelligence, and would know whenever we received any large amounts again, and would they not come at once to my house now that they had heen I did not trust the safe ? The question was a very perplexing one, and 1 had an angry debate over it with some of our Di rectors. I was in favor of getting a reliable safe and employing a night watchman, but I was out-voted. "Old Evans, indeed, went so far as to say that, as lightning never struck twice in the same place, neither did burglars visit old safes the second time. And he was inclined to think our monev would be more safe if left- in h. nTwtnrea BO many of the others into his way of thinking that a resolution was passed declaring it against their wishes to have any of the Company's funds kept anywhere ex cept in the offije safe ! "Of course, the effect of this was that, if I carried the money home aud lost it the money would fail on me in dividually, and not upon the Com pany. "I was angry enough to have re sigued myp!;iee, but my interest in tho concern was too large to bo tntled wit h, though I determined there should be a change in the Board of Directors another year. "About a week after this our Secre tary returned fr.-in B stou on tli; evening train and brought with l.im fifty thousand dollars and nil in green backs, the proceed of our monthly biiis receivable. He brought the money in bills because the day following was our pay day. "I was iu the most perplexing state of mind when he handed me the money. I kuew the offise sate was no protec t ou whatever, atid yet if I carried thu money home with me I was MKi-uaiiug a great r wpoiisibility. Without Haying a word to any one I determined nut to keep the money in the office aud carried it home and put it iu that ottomm. "You m-iy be assured that I did not feel very comfortable that evening. I thought of every nook and coiner in the houfe, and wondered bere would be the safest. At lat I determined npou dividing it, leaving half here and the rest in my own room. I had not mentioned the matter at home, not even to my wife, but plead a head ache when reminded of my preoccu pied air. "I came in here and placed twenty five thousand dollars iu that Ottoman at your feet. See, the top is on hinges and is fas'ened by this hook ou the side. This ottoman I pushed near 'Nap.' The bal ince I carried to my room and put in the stove, thinking it would be the last place where any one would look for it. I went to bed, but it was nearly midnight before I feu asleep. "1 was awakened by a man's hand on my mouth, and to be informed that he did not intend to harm me if I kept quiet, iuy lianas were tben tied be hind me, and the muzzle of the pistol placed agaiust my head. Another man was treating my wife in a similar man ner, 'lney had a dark lantern and wore masks. "After securing us they began to earen tue room, i ir. my clothes the?? the bureau-drawers, nnder the bed every wherebut where the money was. I began to think I had outwit ted tnem, when one said to the other. "Mow s that stove ?' Another minute and they are pulling out the money. "Imagine mv feelincs. if vnn r-ar, Even if they left with this amount, it wa uo smau sum to lose. I could almost nave cried then and there. One ran over the amount and said tn h other 'only one half here. My heart grew corner jcuan before. They went to tue easy cnair and cut open the stnffed seat; they picked up the ottomaD. ex amined it, and went out of the room I was tryinir to eret UD. when n came bsck the other had the mnna he pushed me back into the bed saying I had better keep auiet. J heard the o her man walk A nirn straira and I knew mv monev wo a gone. They evidently knew how much money I had. and from the ripped open the chairs and cushions in my roo.a, they would not be long in searching for that which was down stairr.

I knew that 'Nan was Aninc nia lnl- T a l T .,B """j. oji a umu x jumped to tne floor, and in so doing, gave a wrench to the band about my wrist and broke it, and then, before the man on gu?rd could fire, I caught his revolver. He made a stroke at me; I dodged it. I then caught him . by. the leg. and threw him down. Ashe fell he gave tip his hold on the revolver. "I cared nothing for him. I wanted the man who had the money; eo I rushed down stairs only to see him going out of the hall door. I fired but missed him; I fired aprain and heard a sharp cry of pate; I fire d oDce more and broke his ankle, and down he dropped. The other man jumped out of the window and escaped. "Of course I secured my man, re covered mv money, and old Evans hat! to admit that he had betn wrong, for the robbers had first gone to the office, and csme to my bouse wheu they fonnd the safe empty. Another reve lation that the morning bronght was a confession from my prisoner that our book-keeper was one of heir gai g nnd posted them ib'ut 'nr nfinir. The book-keeper did not c;cae to woik thm morning, nor have we been him since." "And the dog ?" I asked. "Yes, the old dog had all the credit, you see, the thief supposed by the silence that there wan no dog on the promises, und he thought he w8 done for when he opened the door and 'N'tip' sprang at him." "But" said I. was f rifrhteneo rather easily; these fellows don't usu al y eare ranch for a dog " "I gne-s he nev r sw quite snch a doff a Nnp' was that nigt.." fh( Ahck langhine "I hd rn!b d h: j y.-R nnd month with phosj. ii tos ami out ot li e ctrotitf i-prie-g I don't b'rtiiie the le low fro n b. ii-viug thai t.fe ' vil re W-.S I) fore h;m " PLosph'-ru aud st-oi jf spiing J Wn-'t. are you ta;fei!(? about ?"
