twice we saw him walking in the
squares of evenings with a very pret

working on canal street. There was
something very noticeable about the
girl's face—a sort of melancholy and
sadness that went straight to our m
hearts. Any one would have felt bru
kindly towards her by just looking at any

in the robbery. I couldn't got rid of ga f

During the July term, saya the
Canton Mail, an important decision
was rendered in the High Court of
Errors and Appeals in reference to
the recent act of the Legislature, by
which, the Court was caused to be
held at four different points in the
State. The opinion was delivered by
Chief Justice Shackleford, and was to
the effect that the act was unconstitu
tional and void. The High Court
will, therefore, hold its sessions twice
a year, at Jaekson, in the months of
October, and April.

Some time ago the scalawags were
loud and persistent in their demand
for suffrage for the negro. Recently,
however, the tune has changed, and
it is the Legislature that must choose
the Presidential electors. Negro vo

was necessary to secure their election,
but as the dupes are getting "enlight
