Every person should know how to ascertain the state of the pulse in health ; then comparing it with what it is when he is ailing, he may have some idea of the urgency of his case. Pa rents should know the healthy pulse of each child, since now and then a person is with peculiarly elow or fast pulse, and the very case in hand may be of such peculiar ity. An infant's pulse is 140 ; a child of seven about 80, and from twenty to sixty years it is 70 beats a minute, declining to 60 at four-score. A healthful grown per son beats 70 times in a minute, declining to CO at four-score. At sixty, if the pulse always exceeds 70, there is a disease ; the machine working itself out there is a fever or infiamation somewhere, and the body is feeding on itself, as in consumption, when the pulse is quick.

The crew of the Lottie Lee, which was wrecked at Hatteras Monday, the 20th host., were saved by a party of Hatteras pilots by means of a boatswain chair passed along cable from the wreck to the shore. Even the wardrobes of the crew were saved by this means. I have this information, which is assuredly correct, from the old veteran pilot, Seph Willis, who was one of the party of rescurers. The crew of the schooner Shiloh (except the man and boy who were drowned) landed during the night, unaided by any one on shore." Thb New Bomxet. Of course the la dies want tc know all about it, and so we will tell them what the New York corres pondent of a Baltimore paper has to say n the subject. It is as follows: "The shapes differ little from those of last sea son, but the straws and chips are fine and soft, and ivory white, very delicate, and very becoming to the face. Dark straws are very little used, except as brims from one to two inches in depth, to the light ones. Netted scarfs and soft silk handker chiefs are used to form crowns, a corner of which is disposed as a soft loop at the back, or hangs down, and is lost amid sprays of flowers and long streamers of pale cream, or Valenciennes lace. The latter is the lace used for really elegaat bonnets, colored cashmere lace, which has become common, and the fine pleating of crape lisse, which were used so largely du the past summer."

BRUTAL TREATMENT OF A CHILD BY ITS FATHER. Mr. Editor : It has nevei been the misfortune of our community to he shocked as it was yester day morning upon hearing the terrible tale of parental inhumanity that was told from bouse to house on yesterday. 'Tis a tale so horrible in its details that it sounds more like fiction than truth. Tls a tale that would thrill us with horror, did we hear it as com ing from the camp of the Rocky Mountain savage or the Hindoo. The tale as told before Justice Pippen in the Court House on yesterday is this : We give it in sub stance, and don't pretend to give the exact words of the evidence. It seems that one Crockett has been married twice and that by the first wife he had one child, a boy who they say in his infancy, gave great promise of a bright and vivacious intellect, but who, owing U the treatment that it has been shown in court he received at the hands of his father, presents the appearance of a child much diseased and of weak intellect. It appears from the testimony as given, that this poor unfortunate child was in tht habit of doing what we suppose every otb er child that was born of a woman did do, that is to have occasion to perform duties to nature, and because he had no nnrse to attend him at such times, and had never been taught to look for one, he had the misfortune to injure his clothes : for this frightful sin in the eyes of this strict vir tous and particular father be was at first severely chastised with the fist or any otb er convenient instrument, this not having the desired effect starvation was resorted to and after a fruitless attempt with this remedy a new and original cure was resor ted to by this fond and devoted parent, and right here, I would say, that I donbt if the Indian with all his celebiity for keen ness m the application of torture would ever have struck upon such a devilish and cruel plan for punishing the unfortu- nateJcnemy who had fallen into his hands, as was picked upon by this parent to cure a child of such an unnatural infirmity an infirmity that the physicians say must have been brought about by disease. This poor four year old child was made on two oc- casions te go up to a hot stove upon which dinner was being cooked and apply his toungue to iu.a strange medicine for a pronounced disease. The matter above is all that was brought out in court, bat va rious other plans for this unfortunate child's case have been told of by outside parties that would curdle the blood and straighten the hair of the hardest heart in Edgecombe, and it is a cause of great mortification te eur people to think that such a man should live amongs us and our only excuse for tolerating him is that we didn't know him before. We hope and believe that he will move off to some sequestered land and live to himself so that he may never more dis honor a community by living in it, and we will all try to forget him and forget that Tarboro has been humiliated by bis citi- izenship for so long a time. For the Southerner. Prayer far the Nation. BY B. ASHLEY CAKE. Never was the demand for prayer on the part of those who have power with God, for the "Nation" more imperitive than it is at the present period of our national history. Our Legislative Assemblies, State and municipal governments, are sadly corrupt ed. The treasury has been plundered, bri bery practiced, sacrifices of character have been made for pecuniary gains and selfish ends, and by a constant repetition of like practices over national government once an example for all nations, has been great ly demoralized. The fact is not only self-evident and painful to entertain, but from the fact that it is a gaining evil it is alarming, and the magnitude which it has already reached, causes action, Immediate, resolute and de terminate on the part of Christian Churches to be an actual necessity. Lot it be under stood by our readers what is meant by the term "christian church," not the thous ands within the pales of the church, who like the corrupted politicians would wil lingly sacrifice tht principles of Christiani ty for a portion of public fame, and vain reputation, "who like the wave of the sea, are driven with the wind, and tossed to and fro by every form of doctrine. " Though they be in name, in principle, they consti tute no part of the christian church. Hence in speaking of the christian church, we mean those who are " steadfast and un movable," who can say to every temptation im whatever form or color it may be pres ented, "none of these things move me.' Though this class of peoplo be few in num ber, tney have power with God, they have power with the great .Governor himself, "who as the streams of water are turned, turns the hearts of the people whitherso' ever he wiL" This is the only means by which our national government can ever be purged of its L bred crorruption. The demand is for constant, unceasing and un tiring efforts, in the form ef earnest prayer of God's faithful few. "Not by might nor by power but by my spirit," is as ap plicable to-day as in days past, but this knowledge is of non-avaiL unless it re ceives its practical application. Let there then, be an awakening to the magnitude which this growing evil has reached, and wherever sincerity and determination reigns whether in pulpit or pew, family alter or closet, let theie go up daily, regularly and systematically from every such heart, a ".Prayer tor the Nation, and in answer to prayer, wickedness which has so degraded the natian will be over-turned, while the righteousness which exalteth and honors the nation will be thoroughly established. FROKI WILSO.V. Wilson, N. C, Ma 28th 1876. y Editor South ernke : I see from the Wilson Advance, organ of the "Wilson overland Route, all the way to Goldsboro," that they (the Wilsonians) have jumped at a conclusion taken hold of the horns of the dilemma and are having a road of their own the question or rather trouble with tbem lies in a Nut ShelL They want what they can't get, viz : Through rates for local freights something never heard of in the annals of Railroads. It is very much like individuals as with railroads, say, for instance, there was only one store in a place, they would invariably charge high for goods, let another store be Bet up, (competition) the prices would fall inevitably so with railroads. If they want to dopometmngtbat will benefit them selves and the country generally, let them build their long talked of railroad to Green ville, instead of trying to reduce rates by a wagon tram, which will last only during the popular excitement. It is now "toe culfui tunt qut" Wilson is rushing the farmers to hard their own cotton to Golds bore to save the difference of freight, and buy their goods also there instead of at Wilson, keeping them alive to the fact that the freights to Wilson are so high, that even the merchants of Wilson find it to their) iateresta to bcr in Goldsboro. The farmers argue, that if we can hire oar wagons to haul cotton to Goldsboro, and make by it, it is to our interests to haul our own cotton there and make what is saved by the hire of the tesjs, again, who is responsible if a box of goods is lest by this overland route ? they say the driver well make him pay and yen break up the train immediately if the box is a valuable one. Suppose a wagon breaks down with a load of crockery and glass-ware ; better have a bull in a china shop instead. One more supposition, suppose a ditch bridge or some other small breaks in with a wag on load of flour, who will' pay for broken barrels and wet flour ? for taking the "Ad vance's" statement as correct it will keep some thirty wagons daily running just to do the small trade for the town alone, and the roads will not under such usage be the best in the world. With all due respect to the Advance s facilities to obtain facts and figures, it has gone into figures with which it is net so well acquainted, viz : R. R. figures. It makes the statement that the freights to Wilson are $100,000 a year now, such is not the ease, in its best days and highest rates, it did not reach $75,000, leaving $25,000 unaccounted for ; and a gain it says it shipped $12,000 bales cotton a year. It never reached that amount by at least 2,000 bales 2,000 bales is a pret ty pile of cotton, and according to the Ad vance's statement of freight rates a hand some sum of money. It seems to take up the idea, and leaves the impression that the W. & W. It. K. has ail of the insights collected at this place, when it has only its proportionate amount of it, and also all freights collected else where on goods shipped from Wilson. If such is not the case, please let it take the pains to correct its statements, and say only how much is due the W. & W. R. It. for freights, and come out in another R. R. anathrr a against the connecting lines forever claiming t he right to charge for freights tranportea over their routes. It will do by making a correct statement and giving the right ng ures for each road, that other roads have just as much to do with the high rates (as it calls the local rates) as the w . w. k R., the onlv thin? the road is to blame for is, in its being unfortunate as to have Wil son on its hue of road, as a local depot : and therefore has to bear the blame of the whole tariff. The rates of freight to Wil son are no heavier pro rata than to any other place on this or any ether road, as ner tariff made by the road on which the place may be ; but because Goldsboro and Tarboro are fortunate enough to have other means of egress, it necessarily reduces the rates in competing with other routes, and Wilson wishes to have through rates given to her, on no other grounds than that lar boro' and Goldsboro have them, and the only way it can be got is not by a wagon train, or canaling Toisnot Swamp, hut by another competing Railroad.
