This was taking a good deal of trouble on the part of the govern ment for nothing, to be sure, and the prac tice may have been reasonable but prac tice it has become.

Mr. Win borne, the butcher, had a hair breadth escape on Tuesday last from the horns of an infuriated bulL Ia company with Mr. Demuth and a colored nan, he had roped a large bull in an open field and was endeavouring to carry him to his lot for the purpose of slaughtering him. The colored man had the rope, and the animal plunging forward the rope broke. Soon as the now enraged beast found himself at liberty, he lowered his head, hoisted his tail and made for Winborne. The ground had been freshly ploughed and Mr Winborne couldn't make much headway, but his running would do justice to Jenifer or Flora. He made for a large stump, but just before he get there he fell down near a ditch. The bull in raking for him fell on the right foot of Mr. Winborne jamming it against the side of a ditch. The bull was trying to horn Mr. W. the whole time he was in thi perilous position, one time run ning a horn between his neck and collar, tearing the collar off. The other men ran up and roped the animal, and tied him to a stump. Mr. W's foot was badly crushed. He says, "I went through the war, but I was never so badly scared before." Important Decision. Under the head of "An Important Supreme Court Deci sion," the Charlotte Observer of March 10, says : "A telegram received in this city yester day afternoon from Raleigh, states that in the case of Joseph H. Wilson ct.al. va. the Board of Aldermen of the City of Char lotte, recently argued before the supreme court, thecourt on yesterday filed an opin ion in favor of the city. In this case the plaintiffs raised tho question of the power of the city to tax stocks, bonds and evi dences of debt, and also the right of the ! city to boirow money for its necessary purposes. The court holds, as it is pre- sumed from the decision, ,that the defend ants have the power, under the charter, to tax stocks, bonis and other evidences of debt, and to borrow money for necessary purposes. It overrules, it is thought, a previous decision of the court, in the case of Weinstcin vs. the City of Newbern. Borne $3,000 or $10,000 are involved in J this suit. The telegram announcing the decision, was received by Messrs. Jones & Johnson, attorneys for the city." j Spellino Bee at Rooky Mount. On last Tuesday night this now obsolete en'.er tertainraent amused Rocky-Mountonians. It has just permeated that quiet and chris tian village. Mr. John SorBby bossed the job. The crowd was not large owing to the bad spell both outside and inside. Two rews of spellers consisting of eight each arrayed themselves in front of the promp ter. "Baker" was swallowed by Mr. Richard Tillery with huge avidity. Tom Close grabbed earth on "Pique" and was gathered unto his fathers. Joe Arrington wood-bined on "catarrh," spelling it "car- tarhh." Jo is not tho first man to sicken and die with that disease. T. D. Smith, spouted on "Belles Letlres." Ned Tatem tepped down and out on btseige, differ ing witli Webster in that he put it "be- seigh." S. K. Fountain clouded on "busy body" and sought the shades of private life. Walter Pool strangled on "Penny," inser ting an 'e' before the 'y.' Charley Ham mond conflummuxed on "chatteau, " in sisting on "shattoe." Jo Fountain com busted on "victuals." He had missed his supper and en a weak stomach couldn't it and spelled the word "vituals." Mos es Whi 'dock lost his legs cn surviel, mista king the 'viel' for vale in the forests. John Tillery sought salt river on "Daguerreo type. Had he been younger and hand somer he would never have missed it. Dick Tillery slipped up on "league." Jo Burnett persisted in putting an 'i' in pros elyte and sunk beneath the horizon. George Dixon wanted to know if "goard" didn't spell "gourd," "what in the h-11 do spell?" He was turned down at tho corner, X rank Arrington got his e s and i's mixed in chiefly, blushed, bowed and crept under the desk. "Valise" was hurled at Ben Hardy who caught it on the fly, smiling with the con sciousness of easy victory and proceeded to straighten it thusly "valice." The au gust forefmger of commodore Sorsby ad monished him that it was time to rest his weary limbs. Mr. Leoyd of Leoydsville took the stand in a gleesome way and requested a word, saying if he couldn't hold the plow he'd do the best he could. "Exploit," thundered the enunciator, "x-xplyte," exploit. The guffaw that greeted this exploit of Mr, Leoyd sent him spinningto the corner, being young, the grand, mogul ottered nun anotn- er chance whieh he declined. On the see ond inning T. D.

With a grief- stricken countenance he bit the dust. John r. Tillery gasped and died on swap," Tillery contending it was s-w-a-p and the lligh-iockalorum ruling it was s-w-o-p. Mr. John Williford, who was elected a captain fled incontinently when the first word was put to him, leaving a three corn ered piece of white cloth behind. Some contended ii was his handkerchief, but Jo Fountain says he knows better, but de clinea to enlighten us. With a keen eyo to business the big boss swept his right op tic over the crowd and it dwelt en the countenance of Joseph Pearce. He poised a word for Mr. P's delictation and labial manipulation, when Mr. P. heard some one call him down 6tairs. He stood not on the order of his going but went at once. Seven steps were cleared at a bound, the wind the while whistling a requiem to his departing steps. And thus ended the first lesssn. As Bro.

Mr. Barnes of the Topic oc casionally put in an appearance much ex cited. The result of their deliberations was to "loose the dogs of war;" there must be no smoothing of its " wrinkled front." The whole town is a miniature Mt. Ve suvius. Why this excitement? Only this and nothing more. An Agent appeared in the towa a few days before. Notning strange in this. Plenty of this genus homo there at all times, from the metalic cheek ed insurance agent, to the pomatumed, per fumed, hair-split-in-the-middle, wax-mous-t ached sewing machine solicitor. But this was a bearer of glorious tidings of joy to come. So the horn was tooted and the cymbal was clanked. An agent representing the Atlantic Road and the Clyde Steamship Company proposed to transport cotton from Goldsboro to New York for $1 per bale. A wagon train was at once put on the read to Goldsboro. The first train consis ted of 15 wagons carrying 80 bales. What this latter costs we are not inform ed.

Editob: From the time of the first settlement of North Carolina up to the war of the American revolution the pur poses of education were checked strangely by multiplied circumstances. About six years after the end of the war 1776 the subject of education was brought up by tho ueneral Assembly of this State. The preamble of the bill reported con tains these excellent sentiments: "In all well regulated governments, it is the ia dispenaible duty of every legislature to consult the happiness of the rising genera tion, and endeavor to fit them for an hon orable discharge of the several duties of life, bv paving the strictest attention to their education, and an University support ted by permanent friends and well endors ed, will have the most direct tendency to answer this purpose. (Taken from the University Magazine.) In the month of December, in the year 1789. "The Uni versity of North Caiolina," was establish ed by the legislature. The board of Trustees consisted of forty men, considered to be the most learned and influential in the State. 1 he nrst meeting ot the trustees was held about a year after the establishment of the University, at Fayettville. The business of this meeting was to devise the means for carrying on the University and to select a place for its location. Many donations were made to the Uni versity, consisting of about 85,000 acres of land and nearly $20,000. Gen. Person of Granville, gave $1000, Charles Gerard conveyed to the University 13.000 acres ef land ; the ladies of our State were not wanting in zeal, and the ladies of Raleigh and New Berne made splendid presents of apparatus. Chapel Hill in the county of Orange was selected as a proper place to establish the University. One of the buildings, (the East, I think,) was sufficienily completed in 1794 to ac commodate students. The University o pened Feb, 13, 1795. The first professor was, Rev David Kerr, who was assisted by Samuel A. Holmes. In a short time Charles W. Ilarriss was elected to the pro fessorship of mathematics, but only re mained one year. Mr. Harriss was fol lowed by Joseph Caldwell, a graduate of Princeton, "a rran highly recommended for his talents, his scholarship and his pu rity." Dr. Ciild well was the first President of the University, and held the office for thirty -one years. He was appointed presi dent in 1804 and held the office until the time of his death in 1835, with the exception of four years between 1812 and 1816, daring this tisae the Rev. Robert H. Chapman was acting president. Dr. Caldwell visited Europe in 1824 for the purpose of replenishing the library and to form cabinets. Under his administra tion the University grew and flourished. He never slackened in his devotion to the cause and the interest which he manfested in the welfare of the college was eminent 'till the day of his death. "On the eve ning of the 24th of Jan. 1835 the terrible disease made its last assault, with such violence, that he knew his hour of release was at hand. He gratefully hailed the anxiously expected period, and his house having long since been set in order, he withdrew his thoughts from earthly objects and calmly looked upon that fraternity to whose verge he was come." After the death of Dr. Oaldwell the man agement of the University was placed in the hands of Dr. Elisha Mitchell. In two years Gov. Swain was elected president and continued to preside until the college was suspended in 1868. 1 will take occa sion to speak of the last named gentleman in a subsequent letter. Under the admin istration of President Swain the Universi ty saw "its best days." The University was suspended in 1868 and, was again o pened on Sept. 1, 1875. The officers of the institution are : Dr. Charles Philips, Chairman of the faculty, graduated in 1839. and in a few years was appointed tutor of mathematics. In a short time he was made a professor and continued to act in this capacity until the University closed. Dr. Philips now fills the chair of mathe matics. Prrf. J. D. B. Hooper, is professor of Greek and French. He graduaded in 1836 and in the same year was appointed pro fessor of Latin. Prof. John Kimberly, has charge of the agricultural department and lectures on agricultural chemistry. Rev. A. F. Redd is professor of chemis try. He is, I believe, a graduate of the University of Virginia. Rev. A. W. Mangum, a graduate of Randolph Macon College, is professor of the English branches, Geo. T. Tinston, the professor of Latin and German, graduated at Cornell Uni versity. R. H. Graves, Jr., graduated at the Uni versity of Virginia. He is professor of Civil Engineering. Tho two last named gentlemen were members of the "Soph" class when the University closed after the war. I have only given a brief outline of the University and will in future speak of the prominent men who graduated here. I shall also speak of some of the former pro fessors. Don. Methodist Centennial at Raleigh. (From our Special Correspondent.) Raleigh, N. C, Mar. 21, 1876. At ten o'clock this morning the bell at the Metropolitan Hall called the Methodist of this city and visitors together to inau gurate the celebration of the Centennial of N. C. Methodism. Your correspondent re paired to the hall where he found a goodiy number of preachers and people already assemblad. The Hall had been verv taste fully decorated with evergreens and flow ers by the ladies of the Methodist Church. Over the rostrum was suspended a half cir cle, on each end three stars, and in the cen tre the word " welcome" in large gilt let ters. On the left of the circle was 1770, and on the right 1876. The meeting was called to order by Rev. J. P. Moore, pre siding Elder of the Raleigh District and the 91st Psalm and a part of the 5th Chapter of Matthew were read by him followed by the Hymn commencing " Jesus shall reign where'er the Sun, &c.," and prayer by biaf. The choir then sang, "All hail the power of Jesus name," followed by prayer by Rev. E. A. Yates! Rev. L. S. Burkhead nominated Bishop McTyeire as President of the meeting aid ed by Bishops Marvin and Doggett. The Presiding Elders were nominated and elec ted Vice-Presidents. F. L. Reid, Secreta ry. Col. Walter Clark was introduced and delivered the address of welcome. It was well conceived and appropriate. I wish I had time to give you the outline of it, but it is nearly time for the mail to close as I write. Bishop McTyeire is looking slout and healthy, and says hard work agrees with him. He speaks to-n:ght on Methodism and its Founders. Bishop Marvin has the appearance of being care-worn and over-worked. He speaks on Friday on the " Revival Feature of his Church," and leaves for his home on Saturday. He is a favente with the North Carolinians. Bishop Doggett is thin but seems in good spirits. He speaks on Friday. My time is out and I must close. F, "In the 71 ids t of Life we aire in Death." Temfebaxce Hall Gbanoe, No 43, March 16th, 1876. It has pleased Almighty God to remove from us, our much esteemed sister, Mrs. Maggie E. Hobne. In her, were most har motiiusly blended those natural endowments and cultivated traits of character which adorn woman and elevate her above the ordinary level of women, She was a christian lady combining a vigorous and prompt percep tion with an energy, that all might well em ulate, and a sisterly love which having its well-spring in Christianity, embraced all whom she knew. Her cheerful acquiescence in the alotment of Providence, enabled her to enjoy life, amid its daily toils, and realize sunshine in the dark hours of adversity ; and though of experience, young, yet with a liberal education, accurate perceptions and well balanced judgement, she was rap idly becoming a model in household econo my and a bright ornament to society. Resolved 1st. that we bow submisively to this inscrutable decree of Providence and will ever cherish her memory, trusting it may serve as a talisman to charm our souls on to duty. Jiesolved 2nd. That feeling tne logs we have sustained, as an order, we are better able to appreciate the loss to the church and the heavier weight of sorrow, her death has brought on her Father and Husband and that we exteud our deepest sympathy res pectfully to them and their families in their great bereavement.
