It is meeting with a large sale, na is wormy or in large brain and warm heart that con joeived it. Surely, North Carolina is a strange country. In Stoke county of that state, it is said, that a Mr. Jenkiua, desiring to move away and not fully able to take his wife with him, sold her to a Mr, Glidewoll for $500,00. Glidewel was a bachelor and is well pleased with bis bargain. The Baltimore Journal of Com merce calls attention to the fact that the sale of public lands in the South ern states is assuming large propor tions. In three years tbe sales have Increased five-fold. The number of acres sold increased from 461,179 in 1879; to 2,855,768, or 15 per cent of the whole. The aesthetic movement has now found a historian in the person of a certain Walter Hamilton, a young gentleman more "utterly utter" than the renowned Oear Wilde himself. He maintains that there is no such thing as literary taste outside the charmed circle of aesthetics. His devotion to art is certainly remarkable, since his residence la among cockneys and English iu the unseat hetie neighbor hood of Clapham. Some of the astronomers of Eng land seem to have aroused no little alarm by their predictions in refer erence to the late comet. It is about to fall into the sun, next year say they-r-and will consequently destroy the world. If our earth should be destroyed, then the other planets still nearer the sun will also cease to exist. But how silly are all these predictions! The Almighty one builds for all time. It is not probable or possible even that he will, after a few thou sand years, destroy the work of his hands. Most people desire to be handsome to look well, and to appear well to others. Keep clean, therefore, wash freely. It is all important to preserve the skin in good condition, eat regu larly, and-of good, wholesome food. Be sure to sleep enough, and in a pure atmosphere- Keep your teeth clean. Be sure to go to bed with the teeth in good condition: Sleep in a cool room, let the air be fresh and bracing. Read regularly for self-improvement. "Let us have books and read them ser mons, and heed them." Much is said about tbe intellectual training of girls, when it is self-evident that their physical training is of much more importance. Domestic labor is the important matter. House Work should not be considered menial or degrading. Too much brain work is injurious. Tbe truth, is we educate our girls to death. This is of no profit if it be done at tbe expense of physical training. Tbe highest accomplish ment will not compensate for impair ed constitution or diminished health. Bob. TcXMBJ, of Ga., Is in Washing ton in attendance on tbe Supreme Court. He-says that the result in No vember only places the Democratic party on trial ftr two years. If they fail to coioe up to what the people re quire, thtry will fail in 1884. Tbe fail ure to put Tilden in power after hav ing elected him, has caused great dis satisfaction to the Democratic party. What is the use, shy they, of electing a man if we cannot get him into of fice after having elected him. Toombs is a strong anti-protectionist and holds that "mnufacturing interests in the South do not need protection. Ex. Why do so many fntelHgect sons invest their money in lotteries?

W-. t torr. ww tt th M- lewmg vwso wosda, wh cii appeared in the Holly Springs Reporter over the signature of "Senex" ; "Parents are scarcely aware of tbe aid tbey can give teachers in the ad vancement of theft- children. Pupils who are not present at the opening of the school in tbe morning, are very apt to be in default as to other school duties. As a rule, re missness in any one duty, facilitates remissness in other respects; "for whosoever shall keep tbe whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." Parents then should be careful to see to it, that their children are every morning at school on time. For a pupil to miss a single lesson, much leas a day, in attended with an noyance to the teacher and positive injury to the scholar. The lesson may involve some new principle or rule, which it is important the pupil should understand, before advancing, aud this pretermitted, the pupil after wards goes forward at a disadvantage With our brick pavements and plank sidewalks, pupils provided with umbrellas, overshoes and good wrappings, can safely reach the school-room without regard to the weather; and true economy, as well as justice to the pupil and tbe teacher, requires that only tincontrolabie causes be allowed to keep away pupils from the school-room during school hours. Most children are averse to study and restive under coercion and re straint, and many of them find fault with a conscientious and faithful teacher, when tbe blame is all with themselves. The influence of parents always reaches tlfe scbtSbfcToom, and they should certainly ($ very carefurt that this influence be not there felt against tbe proper authority of the teacher, and the good order and dis cipline of the school. Parents should not send 'their children to teachers who have not their confidence, and If anything comes to their knowledge, calculated to weaken this confidence, it is best for them not to indulge fn a fault-finding spirit before their chil dren, who are pupils, but immediate ly to bring the matter to the notice of the principal of tbe school, or the particular teacher concerned. Teach ers are always pleased to know that parents are interested in their success, and an interchange of views with patrons is what they desire, and are more than willing to promote. We know "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," and there fore pupils should be allowed ample time for recreation and exercise; but the hoars allotted to study, should be turned to the best possible account. Everything should be avoided, which could tend to make study Irksome, in siuid, or distasteful. As two sub stances cantkot occupy the same space, at the same time, so neither can the youthful mind do justice to text-books and lessons, while absorbed in the pleasures of society and the frivolities of dancing, theatres, shows and other kindred amusements. It is one of the evils of the times that our daughters are so frequently seen playing the double and inconsistent parts, of school girl and young lady. Indeed our youth of both sexes, too often for their own good visit socially, receive visits and attend parties, balls and other places of public resort; and es pecially is this objectionable on the part of our daughters. Female educa tion, at the present day, in tbe South, at least, is less thorough by lar than it should be. Self-denial, Industry, and perseverance are necessary to real scholarship, and these Virtues, we have reason to fear, are too little culti vated in the most of our home circles. Most old petsons believe that since their youthful days, the discipline and training of children have greatly re laxed. 1 n the last New York Obser ver the senior editor of that excellent paper has an article on this subject, from which the subjoined extracts are taken : "I was led to this subject by notic ing the increased irreverence of the age we live in, the marked decline in res ect for the aged, tbe superior, the parent.

XfeettitBeouti. The Republican Party in Its Extremity. Special to tbe N. O. Pleay uue. All the movements of tbe Repub lican leaders in Congress evince a ter rible alarm and a purpose, if possible, to keep control of tbe Government in 1884. It is understood that their Senators have formed a committee of safety, of which Messrs. Edmunds, Hale, Frye, Harrison, Don Cameron, Miller, of New York, Sherman and Logan are members. Some of these Senators went to work on President Arthur before he wrote his last mes sage, and succeeded in getting him to take the ground they desired on po litical assessments and other topics. Tbe President, thoroughly intimi dated and humiliated by the popular verdict in the elections, was in a ready frame of mind to take advice, how ever contrary to the whole tenor of bis political life. It was agreed on both sides that everything should be done to secure the union, harmouy and perpetuation of the Republican party, and that to this end it was nec essary to ignore the distinction of the stalwarts and half-breeds fn making appointments and removals, and to recognize equally all who were will ing to support the Republican party. Soon after this policy was urged on, a delegation of prominent Republi cans, such as Barney Biglln, Clint. Wheeler, "Deady and Congressman Smart, of New York, came down here to ask for the heads of Collector Robertson and all other Federal offi cials In New York who had failed to work zealously for the party ticket. To this the President gave a decided negative, saying that they must unite the party for the struggle of 1884, and that he would make no changes of Repdblieans except for cause. The Hon. Simon Cameron, it is re porter?, came here as a peacemaker to nnro nnnn Tferns nsmpron an aMHsa. tanee of this new goapei and a reeou- c illation with Senator Mitchell, his colleague. This amnesty' has been arranged. Mr. Conk hue is outside of this treaty of peace, and is disgusted with the torn things have taken. He thinks that Collector Robertson be trayed the party, and warred On both himself and Mr. " Arthur, and until Robertson and others like him are rs moved he holds aloof from Mr. Ar thur's administration. The Republican Senators held a cau cus yesterday, which strongly favored this effort to close up the ranks and to amend the fences of the Republi can party. It was agreed to push the Pendleton oivil service bill as fast as possible and to pass It, with amend ments making it; acceptable to the Republicans. Also to pass a tariff bill such as tbe Senate Finance Com mittee would report. Also to pass an internal revenue bill to be fixed up by Messrs. Morrill, Sherman and Alli son. These measures are to be made party measures and pressed to a vote with the whole force of the party dis cipline. They feel that something has to be done to save tbe party, and that no time can be lost about it. Sensational Da velopme at Richmond Richmond, Va., Dec 13. The systematic work of plundering graves in Oak wood cemetery, which has been, going on for years, and which has- defied the efforts of tbe custodians of the cemetery to stop, has met with a sudden temporary cheek. The last successful raid upon the graves was made on Saturday night, when three bodies were carried off This act excited the authorities to greater vigilance, and last night the regular cemetery guard was rein forced by a squad of a dozen police, who after lying in wait untill after midnight, succeeded in capturing four men, two white and two colored, in the act of opening a grave. The white men proved to be two young medical students. This morning the police, armed with warrants, searched the Virginia medical college, at id found four dead bodies, three of which were recegaized as those resurrected from Oak wood cemetery Two of the bodies were patients of the Central luuatie asylum for colored people, and one was a col ored city pauper. Police Justice Richardson i Inves tigating the ease. Much Interest is manifested, as the young students io custody are well connected. ?'1L appeared in the evidence that one of the students, W. B. Meredith, acknowledged when captured that he was with the party who' robbed tbe graves Sunday night, bat that the other student, W. A- Smith was not with them. At the conclusion of the testimony, the police justice sent Mer edith ami the two negroes to the grand jury on a charge Of felotty' in actually robbing the graves on Sun day night, and of taisdemeanor lit at tempting the same deed last night. Smith was sent on misdemeanor only. The justice refused bali for these charged with felony, but Meredith was subsequently released on a writ of habeas corpus.

A few days ago, Mr. Lawlor, of Williamson County, paid the sanc tum of Txas Sittings a friendly visit. It is not unusual for us to be thus honored. Almost every day some polite gentleman calls in to see us with s bill to collect or some other testimonial of regard. Mr. Lawler, however, came on a different mission. We desire to call attention to him. We desire other visitors, and those who expect to become visitors, to model on him, for he is the kind of intruder 'we want to see frequently. Such disturbers as Mr. L:twler inter rupts US ety agreeably. For the In formation of all who visit newspaper offices, we will first tell what lie did not do. Ho did not put bis feet upon tbe table and tamper with the exchanges. He did not give us a mile and a half of advice how to make the paper pop ular with the masses. This alone made us look on him in the light of a sainted angel. He did not startle us With a new joke that he claimed to have originated last week, but which we remembered to bave heard in a circus thirty years ago. Neither did Mr. Lawler tell us anything about Sam Housto j and the early history of Texas, or about bis having shot a deer, away back in 1840, on the spot where the Capitol now stands. The failure of Major Lawler to commit any of these outrages impels us to put him io nomination Tor Governor, which we hereby do. Add now we propose to state pre cisely fust what Cel. Lawler did do. The first thing this noble hearted friend did was to go away at tbe ex piration of ten minutes after he enter ed the office. As soon as he entered he drew out two dollars, did this na ture's nobleman, this hightoned southern gentleman, Gen. Lawler, and renewed his subscription which had not yet expired, remarking that -Sittings was the very best paper in Texas. Yes, that's just what this heaven-born old Texan, Gen. Lawler, said. . Then he produced a bottle from a basket and proceeded to cheer up the Sifters from the contents, remark ing once more that he was an admirer of the paper, which deserved to be framed in gold. The contents of the bottle was not the vile stuff called home-made-mustang wine, with which old grangers disorganise the internal economy of inexperienced journalists, but was ice cold beer- After this seraphic old hero, General Lawler, had drunk a glass to tbe prosperity of Texas Sif tings amid tbe blushes of the editors, he said he would not thiuk of occupying more of our valuable time, and bade us fare well, but not before he had produced a second bottle, which be forced upon us, with the injunction to drink it as soon as we got lonesome or thirsty, both of which mental and bodily sensations we began to experience as soon as our generous friend was out side thf door and not likely to re turn to get of it the beer, we mean. Now visitors know how we are to be conciliated. It should be mentioned, however, that there is no intention of limiting their enthusiasm. If instead of two bottles of beer Gen. Lawler bad brought two Kegs, that would not have dismissed our high regard for him. If he had brought iu a few boxes of cigars, even that would not have lessened our admiration for bis many good qualities of heart and head. Gen. Lawler's past life has been blameless as far as we know, except be owned up to being personally inti mate when living in Mississippi with Col. A. J. Frantz, of the Brandon Re publican, but all who know the Colo nel, will readily understand how a man who carries bottled -beer about with him could hardly help being rather intimate with him so long as the beer tasted. The following is the paragraph in the Code of 1880 that ets forth the duties of the Secretary and the Gov ernor relative to granting the com missions of officers. DUTY OF STATE AS TO RETURNS. 1 141.

It was evening in the Land of the Aztecs ; that region of sunny skies, of fragrant flowers, of gleaming gold and b mm men ng stiver. The sun's rays, bad already kissed the verdant bill tops, and trailed in beauty along the evening sky; when on a gory battle field by Mexican and America, bleed ing, groaning, dying ; while among them, like a ministering angel, mov ed a Mexican woman, busily engaged in caring for the wounded of both armies. At last, a She bent over a dying mau, a stray bullet pierced her, and she fell dead. Now, is in imagination we stand beside her cool ing form, we askv What brought this woman to the field of strife? You an swer, "She was impelled by motive." But what was moved ? Was it pri- marity her nana, or bead, or heart? :fHb it anything physical, gross and material ? No; tbe physical was but the instrument of that which was im pelled, and Wrought in obedience to its command. Surely the unreal ean not affect the real. A shadow could not bid a hand extend, or a foot hasten to the relief of tbe suffering. That which was moved was Immaterial, in visible, and must have been an entity. It would posit nothing against the eutitati ve nature of the soul, if abstract reason or philosophy did not clearly reveal the fact. We should remem ber that in all inquires concerning the intangible (and especially in psychol ogical investigation), man is liable to be strongly influenced by imagina tion and vanity. We see this clearly illustrated in the writings of Tyndall, Helmholtz and Myer on the wave theory of sound, and in those of New ton, whose "yard stick" has recently been so hackled and scarred. ' Thus was it with the few sages of Greece and Rome, who finding In the operations of the mind, no manifesta tion of the propeities of matter, be lieved in soul immateriality, and argued from that not alone future im mortality, but also a past eternity of existence. The truth is that while man in his present condition makes rapid strides in attaining a knowledge of the material and ponderable; when he enters the field of the intellectual be walks amid some mysteries which are unfathomable, and others of which he can learn but little. And when reason reaches its utmost limit in the examination and study of the u seen, she is prone to supplement her mea gre accumulations of truth by draw ing on the Imaginary and unreal to fill out the picture. And further, man must not confuse tbe unreasonable with the super rea- aouauie. i mmy uo rawuauic w Gabriel which to us is apparently un reasonable, because of our inability to grasp all the bearings of tbe case. To rand anvthinz as erroneous which we can not fat boos, is arrogantly to declare dui salves the peers of Higher Orders ol Intellect, and to ignore an mystery in the world. Worlds may exist though our insufficient vision may not behold them, and great truths may obtain though we ate un able to comprehend them. But we have indubitable philoso phical demonstration of the substan tial and entitative nature of the soul. The editor of Microcosm has proved it iu the statement, and amplification of a simple philosophical law namely: "That which moves an inert body must of necessity be a substance of some kind." On this self-evident proposition be rears a superstructure against which the waves of scepti cism, and the lightnings of material ism may strike without danger of in juring the building. In addition to this testimony of reason, two facts throw a flood of light upon this question "of the soul as an entity or supernatural organism. The first is this : It accords with the universal belief of men. Graves are adorned, not only by flowers and redolent-plants (just emblems of the physical life of man, "which has been compared in Holy scriptures to those fading beauties, whose roots being buried in dishonor rise in glory,") suggestive of the body's resurrection; but o'er the tombs pf the departed even the heathen plant the holly, rosemary, or other evergreen, which, growing into luxuriance and over shadowing the tombstone, reveals human belief in the undying nature of the soul. If undying then at once immaterial, and an entity. And fur ther, this universal impression is sig nificant because of its very univer sality. As an effect is universal so must its cause be. This holds true of the sense of sin, of the instinctive dis position to appease Divine wrath, and also of the belief in the immortality, and therefore of the entitative nature of the soul. Now. that which as a cause Is universal is omnipresent, and the-omnipresent is the infinite, and the ini I fte Is God, and God makes truthful impressions upon men. Therefore we are driven to a belief iu the Soul's Entity, or a disbelief in Divine truthfulness. The second fact worthy of notice is this. Introspection teaches that the soul is a distinct entity. Somewhat moves my arm. It is not abstract power, for power is sn attribute; and therefore while it may be a means, it never can be a cause. And if an attribute, it is an attribute of somewhat must be real, for you can as soon conceive of a weight hanging on nothing, as of an attribute housing itself in a shadow. So that in which power resides is more than shadow; and If so, substantial, and entitative. Indeed we intuitively look for a cause in power dwelling iu some substance. Leibnitz correctly taught tha,t "the soul's power to set, proved It to be a substance"; and Gregory said, truth fully, "The soul must be immaterial and real; for It thinks, while matter does not." The above considerations lead me to say that all materialistic objections to tbe view that tbe soul is a sub stantial independent organism, are We are told that that only Is real which is visible, as if (the ball were less as entity when flying so switly from the cannon s mouth that man cannot see it; or at if Christ is less an entity because the eyes rnaus- JnUsehei t it the. sou iioight not sse ml life. Life is that of which motion is not the author, but the sequence i .nd characteristic. The soul is the pare at, and not the offshoot of abstract foi ce. And this sublime truth of subst an tial soul-life sheds light on the other wise mysterious problem of physical perfection in heaven. Dr. Lowler, in the October number of the Micro cosm, speaking of the "reciprocal In fluence of the miod and body, notes not only how the reception of a tad message may affect tbe healthy wl en huiigry by instantly ridding then of all desire ior food but he also re fers to the recovery of an invalid, as a direct sequence of conversion. Have we uot here a possible rest on for the Bible statement' that in heat en "There shall be no more death, net lit er sorrow nor crying, neither aball there be any more pain." Each qpti tative soul purified from all sin rr ay become to its own body the eternal preventative of ail physical maladies. IfSa, then trith what new joy shall the body-keeping spirit sing'O, dea th! where is thy sting? O, grave! wh rre is tny victory ? me sting or a sett) is sin, the strength of sin is the law : hut thaoks be unto God who giveth us t he victory through our Lord Jeous Christ." However this may be, this re ma ns true, Man stands to-day not ahouti ig questions into (what Carlyle call sd) 'the Sybil Cave of Destiny," and re ceiving no answer but an echo. Int ui tion, fact, and revelation shout buck that the soul is an entity, destined to live forever. Mind, the Angel ot the Universe, ready to soar out of the mists of earth, plumes her wings 'or everlasting flight. The instinct which forbids her to close her pinions a id to die, has been voracious for tit je, and may be justly and safely trusted for eternity. National Gift to Education. The action of tbe Committee of tbe House of Representatives on Educa tion and Labor, in authorizing Its chairman, the Hon. John C. Sherv in of Illinois, to report favorably to the House the bill appropriating ten n il lion dollars annually for tbe next f ve years in aid of public education, 1 a a favorable indication of the effect which has resulted from the con t u ued discussion of the requirements of the Southern people, and of their evi dent inability to do for themselves their first and chief duty in educatl ag their electors.

The Only "Feller" on Hia Side. Psek's Sua. Judge Davitt used to tell some admi rable stories of an old Dlinois jodj fe, one of which we chance particularly to remember. One of the judges was rather remarkable for conveying to jurors in bis charges to them his om opinions with regard to the merits of the ease. In one case be had done so with great plainness, but, to 1 is amazement, the Jury hung out lor hours without coming to an agne ment. The judge Inquired of the ha il iff what was the matter, and learn id from him that one juror was hangi ig oat against tbe other eleven. He sent for the jury at once, aud stating to tbe jurors that he bad plainly in si tuated how the case ought to be de. i ded, and he understood one Juror wis banging out against the other eleven, he proceeded to rebuke the juior sharply. The obstinate juror was a nervous little man. and as soon as the judge was done he rose aud sail: "Judge, may I say a word?" Yes, sir," said the Indignant jude; "what have you to sayt" "Well, what I wanted- to a.. is I am the only feller that's on your aid ."
