The following verses are from " The Nags Head or a season among the Bankers " by Gregory Seaworthy, Philadelphia ; A. Cary successor of Carr Ac Hart : 1850 a book which everv North Carolinian ought to read. We hone some fair daughter of the State, forsaking fbreien " fantasias " and outlan dish " variaziones will deign to set it to some sweet, simple air, and give us another bome-Eong of the Uld North state.

AGRICULTURAL. Southern Ladies, patroniae your own Me- Wm FORGIVENESS. Forgiveness is an attribute of the Deity, It may be cherished by the creature man. When cherished, it translates him to a loftier grade of glory. The man descends, and thereby ascends. He forgives his fellow and is forgiven of God. Angels pause on their shining pinions, amid the festivities of glory, to gaze upon the displays of forgiveness, whether by the creature or Creator, finite or infinite, God remits the sins and weaknes ses prevalent among men, and man taught of God forgives and remits willingly the una perpetrated by his brother man. Christ,, in the New Testament, dwells upon forgiveness with peculiar emphasis and power. He adopts parables, arrays arguments sued as only tne saviour of a world could arrange and empha sise, and throws upon the subject the radi ance of a life brilliant for its purity, and il lustrious for its humility. Forgiveness 1 tho very term implies a state of heavenly mindedness. The Canibal and the Hottentot are strangers to Forgiveness. The Greenlanders were universally rapicious and cruel prior to the introduction of the Gospel into Greenland by the Moravian Missionaries. rThen the various truths of the Bible were expounded in their hearing, they listened in sullen indifference, or turned away in disgust. But when the ineffable love of Jesus was preached to them tears streamed down their swarthy and scarred cheeks. Forgiveness resulting from an ac ceptance of Christ into the heart, was a theme new and enrapturing and they run through their villages, shouting as they went " oh, how beautitul oh, how beautiful 1 Forgiveness is the pledge of our acceptance in etorv. When the storm of life is oer the fever of sin has abated, the miserable folly which invaded the bosom as a serpent eaters a nest of unfledged doves, only to prey upon its innocent inmates, has departed torever and the heart ceases its wonted activ ity, and the crimson current coagulates in the veins and freezes at the fountain-head of all vitality, how gloomy, how terrific should sav, would the yawning grave be were it not spanned by the bow of Forgive ness, which, like the bow of promise, de rives its glory from its proximity to lowering clouds and dU-mal torrents. Considered thus, the grave is but the threshold of heaven : through its wideflung portals the Forgive ness of Jesus strcamR and illuminates all who enter there. Jesus Christ seated at the right hand of God pleads his atoning sacri fice. God forgives man for the sake of the Calvary offering. Who will not exclaim with the converted Greenlanders, in view of a Saviour's Forgiveness to fallen man, " oh how beautiful, oh, how beautiful t" MANAGEMENT OF ANIMALS. In breaking or managing horses how. ever intractable or stubborn their temp er may be, preserve your own. Al most every fault of the brute arises from ignorance. He patient with him, teach and coax him, and success in time is certain. There are tricks, however, which are the rssults of confirmed hab its of viciousness, and these sometimes require a different treatment. A horse accustomed to starting and running a- way, may be effectually cured by put ting him to the top of his speed on such occasions, and running him till pretty thoroughly exhausted. A horse that had a trick of pulling his bridle, and breaking it, was at last re duced to better habits, by tying him tight to a stake driven on the bank ol a deep stream. W ith his tail pointing to the water, be commenced pulling at the hal ter, which suddenly parted, over the bank be tumbled and after a somerset or two, and floundering awhile in the water, he was satisfied to remain at his post in future, and break no more bri dles. A ram has been cuied of butting at every thing and every body, by placing . if fl an unicsisung eingy in a similar posit ion : when the sudden assault, on a win try day, resulted in tumbling hisramship into a cold bath, which bis improved manners took good care to avoid in la ture. A sheep-killing dog has been made too much ashamed ever again to look sheep in the face, by tying his legs to stout ram on the brow ot a hill, while the flock were quietly feeding at the bottom. On being set Iree and some what startled at retting out, in his haste to rejoin his friends be tumbles and thumps master Tray so sadly over the stones and gullies, that he was quite sat isfied to confine himself to cooked mut ton thereafter. Man's reason was given him to con trol ' the beasts of the field and the birds of the air" by other means than brute force. If he will bring this into play, he will have no difficulty in meet ing and overcoming every emergency of perverse instinct or bad habit in the dumb things, by his superior cunning.

SKETCHES OF N. CAROIM. Beat-tie's Fokd, Lincoln Co.,N, C. ? October 25th, 1850. C A work will be published by the undersigned this Spring, entitled as above, giving an accu rate account oi eacn county in our oiate, in al phabetical order, the derivation of lis name, date uf formation, its Colonial and Revolutionary history, a biography of lis distinguished citizens, an accurate list ot its representation in eacn branch of the General Assembly, its Towns, Rivers, Population, Resources, Products, and Tonoeranhv. 1 be undersigned nas tor many years oeen col lecting and condensing the material fur this work the archives of our own State have been care fully examined, and copious extracts made from its records. He has procured from the offices of tbe Hoard of Trade and plantations in London, many valuable documents. Rare and valuable works have been purchased from abroad, touch ing the early history of oar Slate, and each ooua ty, which have never seen the light, lie has been kindly aided by gentlemen in different sec tions by copies of uriginal documents and faith- fuf traditional statements, highly important and interesting. He does not aspire to the position of the His torian, but hopes from records and statistical facts to afford materials lo other and abler hands for this nleasinir and less laborious dutv. This work it is hoped will be useful as a book of reference, to the statesman and scholar, and man of busi ness or leisure. Occasional extracts have been published in the Standard and other papers of this Slate, under the signature uf " Tacitus." The History ofNurth Carolina is yet to be written. The remark which one of the ablest Historians of the age, (Bancroft,) has been compelled to make, that ' so carelessly has the History uf North Carolina been written that the name, merits and end of the first Governor is not known." is a reflection upon us. An examination of the early history of the Coon ties of North Carolina shows a record of the pu rest patriotism and indomitable courage. This recurd is now covered bv the dust of age, and unknown by neglect. It is a debt which the present generation uwes to tbe past as well as the future, to preserve these memorials ; for it often occurs iu the history of our race, that facts known tn one veneration are controverted bv the next, and at a succeeding period are consid ered as doubtful legends, unworthy of histori cal faith. Our Mecklenburg Declaration of In dependence, in May 177a, bad almost been an illustration ot the troth. " There are deeds which should not pass away, And names that must nut wither : though the earth Forgets her empires with a just decay, The enslavers and the enslaved, their death and birth." This work will be illustrated with a Map of the Mate, trom latest surveys, and including the new Counties to this dale, and sketches in Engravings of sume of her beautiful scenery It will contain about 500 pages, and be furnish ed at one dollar a copy. Subscriptions will be received and tbe bowl furnished at dtnerent points of the Slate. J.MI. it. VVrifi,L,tK. P. S. Editors of the different Presses io the State are reqnested to copy the above.

" Our design in eettine on this volume is ta add to the stock of Pure Temperance LiUera ture, to elevate in the public mind that reform so full of promised blessings to the present and coming generations. - Believing as we do that tbe Temperance Reform is one uf the mighty agencies to be era. pioyea lor tne elevation oi man, tne improve ment of society, the stability of free popular ia ti to lions, and the moral and religious leneva tion of a wicked world, we avail ourselves of the press the principal medinm of reachirrr the public mind lo promote the precious inte rests and advance the standard oi this God-liks) enterprise. As incident to ear frenera! desitrn : and art render the wurk more attractive and interesting, we have introduced faithful Portraits and brief Biographical Sketches of a few of the most dis tinguished champions of our holy cause. There are many others perhaps equally deserving a place in our Portrait ballery : indeed, all who have labored devotedly, zealously, honestly and perseveringly in this department of moral re form, should be enrolled among the benefactors of their race j but tbe extent of this work pre scribes a limit to our selection. " Tbe elevated character and exalted! reputa tion of the contributors to this volume, will be sufficient ta commend it to the attentieai of the reading public. Finally, whether our effort lo contribute a mite to the pure liiterature of the country, promote the well-being of society and the glury of God, shall be successful, remains to be seen. Whatever may be the result, we commit it to the hands of our countrymen, with the happy consciousnss of being actuated by a sincere desire to do good." S. F. CART, M. W. P.
