Says the Piedmont Press: 'Watts said at Marion that he was raised on the borders of civilization, and it took him a long time to climb the bill of fame. The first assertion is strongly supported by tho very striking resem blanoe between him and the monkey family and the additional character istic that the higher ho climbs the more he shows his monkeyism.' Says the Wilmington Star: 'There is a colored woman residing on Capt Grainger's place on Masonboro' Sound who has reached the advanced age of 105 years. Her name is Rabel Neal.

No wonder Judge Moore is fond of being a member of Con ventions. Maj.

As the editor of this papAf was one of the parties enga ged in the late shooting affray, we refrain from publishing a circumstantial statement for fear that it might tend to predudice one side or the oftier. The matter will be in the hands oi the court at an early day, and after stating we acted in defense of self and theliberty of the press, the rest is with his Honor. BENEFciru. At the request of Mr. W. T. Godwin, represntative for this coun ty, we announce that the Louisville Med ical College has granted one Beneficiary Schollarship to each county in this State and that any one who desires to attend and is unable on account of pecuniary resorses, can apply to him and will receive the nec essary certificate to entitle the applicant to admittance. A Black Snake Catches a Flying Squirrel. We were told a few days ago of a fight that happened on the plantation of Col. E. Cromwell, between a black snake and flying squirrel. It seems that the snake stole slyly up a tree and grab bed the squirrel unawares, and immediately tightened his coils around him so powerful that life was soon extinct. He then fell from the tree for the purpose of devouring his prey. It was something new to those who witnessed it. General Ransom. Our distinguished Senator fought nobly in the cause that was decided yesterday in the cause of the white men of the State. Eastern Carolina was well canvassed by him and Lis earnest elo quence aroused the spirit of determination wherever he went. In Nash he was en thusiastically received and in Pitt two solid acres of white men listened with rapt at tention to the gifted Senator. Both coun ties have gone democratic and his visits were attended with beneficial results on all sides. The interests of North Carolinians are always safe in the hands of Matthew W. Ransom, the soldier, patriot and states man. Enigma. I am composed of 12 letters.

My whole is one of Tarboro s " funny boys." Badlt Frightened. A certain swain, residing; not far distant, has been visiting his "little sweetness" quite frequently for some time. Last week he paid her a call, fully determined to know, ere he departed, what should be his destiny. While the "old folks were sweetly resting in the arms of Morpheus, the devoted swain gath erad his faculties, summed up courage for the onslaught and "popped the ques tion," at which she became badly fright ened and exclaimed: "My dearest, you scare me." The young man remained silent for some time, when she grew weary, and, tapping him on the shoulder, ejaculated : " Johnnie, scare me again !" What County. Papers Do. An ex change cambats with considerable vigor the arguments that the city weeklies are cheaper than the country papers, because they give more columns of reading matter for the money. Do the city papers it asks, ever give you any home news? Never. Do they ever say anything in regard t your own county? Nothing. Do they contain notices of schools, churches, meet ings, improvements, and hundreds of other matters of interest, which yourxounty pa pers publishes without payJjrOot an item, I n 4 I , r n . .

Farmers would do well to clip this out and remember it ; One of the little things which a farmer may neglect to his cost, is that of testing field and garden seeds before planting mem. most important in this matter is the corn crop. An experienced corn grow er can generally give a preuy sate opin ion as to whether corn will be good for seed There are some special marks which help to determine this question of vitality but when it is so easy to determine the question deffinately by planting a few ker nels, it is not so wise to run a slight dan ger of being mistaken. In a less impor tant degree, the same is true of garden seea. We strongly advise taking a few seeds of each kind to be planted, counting them ana planting them in a box of good earth kept in warm room and watered as needed In a few days the plants will appear, and it all or nearly all of the seeds have trer mlnated vigorously, the quality of the seed may be considered positively settled. The work should be done promptly, so as to get another assortment if that on hand prove, defective. Western Rural ELECTION ! THE RESULT i Vote of Edgecombe.

It will be seen that they are so few that no definite figures can be made iu regard to the general result. There is nothing in the returns to discourage us. Except Mecklenburg and Gaston, the Re plicans make no unexpected gains, while we gain Robeson which was hardly counted upon. In our last Legislature the Democratic majority was 4G. The Republicans must therefore gain 24 members to secure a majority in the Convention. Their gains thus far are Wake, four; Lenoir, one; Richmond, one; and probably two, each in Wayne and Mecklenburg, and one in Gas ton, a total of eleven. We gain two in Robeson. This makes a net Republican gain of nine. The territory heard from embraces niiie- tenths of the debateable ground in the State, while Alamance, Person, Buucumbe, Yadkin and Alexander will probably give Democratic gains. We still believe that the Democrats will have a majority of fif teen in the Convention. PITT. Jarvis & King elected Majority 130. Official. MARTIN. Elder C. B.

At Boston, Mass., oa Thurs day, July 29th, of Summer Complaint, Mrs. Henp.ietta Rider, aged 72 years. Her remains were taken to Baltimore and in terred on last Monday. She leaves five children, the youngest being Mrs. S. E. Spier, of this place. She was a loving mother and a devoted christian. IN MEMORIAM. DoaAdaughter of W. J. and II. V. Sta ton was born April 11th, I860, and died June 26th, 1S75. Were this the death of an ordinary per son, or had it occurred m an ordinary way, no further words would he neccessary ; but when I remember that in an unexpected moment death robbed us of our darling, gif ted so far above ordinary mortals, I feel that it would be unjust to allow her beauti ful life and untimely death to pass unnotic ed save in the bare announcement of her being dead. On Saturday afternoon, June 26th, Dora with Bel' friend Hester Pippen, went bath ing in;,ber fathers ice pond and unfor tunately ventured into deep water. Hid Dora been alone, there need have come no tragic end to the bath, since she had been taught to swim, but in her efforts to save her friend boti were drowned. Of Hester I ktibw personally nothing tho' I am assured she was much beloved, but of Dora Staton, I can truthmlly say every thing that is lovely and of good report. Pla ced as she once was, under my charge, for nearly a year, I knew her ia her daily life, and hence when I pronounce her character almost perpeot, I speak from actual obser vation. Loving, generous, truthful, and noble in every impulse and altogether lovely in per son and manners, I regard her as being a worthy model of human excellence. Having died together, Dora and Hester were very fittingly hurried ia the same grave in the Episcopal Cemetery in Tarboro, their remains having been followed to their last resting place by the largest procession ever witnessed in the community. The whole town has been made sad, and the universal glocm must show to the be reaved parents how much beloved were their children. God help these sorrowing parents to bear this blow, and above all let them remember that all things work together for good to them that love the Lord. Now this be reavement eeerueth previous, but in His own good time we shall come to know the pur port of this seemingly bitter affliction. M. C. P. OBITUARY. It becomes our painful duty to record the death of our Worthy Master, Mr. William R, Cherry, whose shattered nerve andjunsteady step gave signs of an ekingtowards that etcr t& shore from whence aoj traveler ever re turns 'For many long months previous to his lastillness, which appeared at first but a rep etition of the same old attacks that had prey -ed upon his system so often before. But in satiate nature, unwilling to trust her charge in the hands of her maker, still held the cup to the trembling lips that had so often before soothed pain and brought relief to the suf ferer, but alas! as the morning twilight gave way to the beams of the rising sun the dim taper was extinguished and death came. Yes, she who was still watching, now gave up the Ghost and acknowledged the power of the Creator greater than that of His crea tures, and we will here exclaim with her whose silent grief gives sigus of a heavy cross, "Thy harvest is gathered away from life's vain, But we hope we 6hall meet thee, dear com rade, again." How sad! How sad! The head and father of our worthy Institution, the Indian Branch Grange, is gone, Aye, gone! from the shores of time to eternity, and the gloom therefrom seems to hold us spell-bound as yet, but Oh! may we all in time be willing to look awav from the perishable things of this earth, and with hearts that are grateful be able to trust in God's care. Oh man! be led not into temptation, (we beg pardon if we trespass) but how few of us are above the necessity of repeating this humble prayer of " Him who spoke as man never yet spoke, and how many of us who consider ourselves as almost without sin would fall if tempta tion with its gilded seductive net was spread out before us, but God is willing and able to pardon and take His creatures home to him self from the evil to come. The personage of the above sketch was chosen Worthy Master of the Indian Branch Grange, Nov. 5th, 1873, has been a consistent member, doing well the work set before him ever siuce. Had never failed to fill his place at every regular and called meeting, manifested more interest in the cause than any other mem ber ; had spent his means freely to render us comfortable as a body: was a bountiful provider fer his own household, a practical farmer and a good neighbor, especially in eases of sickness and distress. We will scarcely ever fail to remember the congeni ality of feeling manifested at our last meet ing when he appeared more agreeable than usual, counselled all, he gave good advice and it will long be the goal at which our imaginations will halt as we advance in the Patrons ot Husbandry.
