Most certainly all should be interested in making the flag such as will reflect credit upon our State and such interest does seem, to exist as evinced by a donation from Fayetteville of $35 ; and Beaufort notwihstanding her recent heavy loss by fire, sent $20, and many others have been generous beyond expectation. The ladies have not heard yet from Wilmington or Charlotte but hope for them to respond generously as is their custom. Raleigh News. Cncncn Statistics. We have been kindly furnished by Rev. F. D.

Editor : It was our pleasure to attend one of the most pleasant entertain merits last Friday evening that it has ever been our good fortune to enjoy. It was the Calico Hall, given by the young ladies of Mrs. Gen I. I'ender s school to the citi zens of Tarboro in honor of return of the 1st of May. In spite of the veto put upon the enter tainment by the clerk of the weather, the spacious school room was filled to repletion by the old Men and matrons and the young men and maidens. The ladies both young and old, with a very few exceptions, obeyed the rules laid down by the fair entertainers, that they should appear in calico diesses the effect was most pleasing to the eye, a superficial view left the impression that all were ro bed in the most expensive party costumes and the combination of colors made a most pleasant impression. It has been suggest ed by some ol the pater iamihas who were present, that, in consideration of the strin gency in the money market, the low price of cotton (and calico) and the artistic taste displayed by the young ladies in their uget up" for the evevniug, that calico balls be the established fashion for 1876, and in stead of having to write a check for $15 or $20 to hx Ann JOiza up for the Fire men's ball, he will just have to go down into his pants pocket and take out a coup le of those new silver half dollars and tell her to step down town and get twenty yards of the prettiest calico she can find and go to fixing. After a few minutes de 1 voted to promenading, looking around and criticising, the fiddles struck up and we 1 were told to take our places for the first set. 'Twas then that the young ladies showed to their greatest advantage for they proved mat tney could not only look well m calico, but what is much harder to do, could dance well by the Tery poorest music. These fiddlers must have been the trio who brought the following from the satirest : "Great Orpheus played so well he moved old meg, But these move nothing but their fiddlestick" The young ladies of the school all look ed especially well with their calico dresses and calico trimmings and seemed to eniov to the full the treat they were giving their elders, but the most interesting part of the programme for the eveninz to the bovs was the part that called for cake and ice cream. The baser fabric of the masculine nature here showed itself. The boys generally had spent the eve nmg sitting around the wall apparently nan asieep, not even awake to the charms of female beauty done up in calico, but when ice cream was announced they ehow- J . IS 1 i ... , . cu miiijf mtcrcai in. mmgs arouna mat one wouldn't have supposed was in them a few minutes before and if they only show as much energy And determination in their striving after place and fortune in life as they oia in their endeavors to put them selves outside of as many saucers of ice cream as possible, they will make a suc cess of life and the future prosperity of Tarboro is assured. After spending a most pleasant evening in the mazes of the dance, pleasant con verse and in investigating the remarkable qualities of the centennial pencil the com pany dispersed about one o'clock every one sorry that 'twas time to go, and hoping that the young ladies would give just such another at each returning May day. X. The Episcopal Convention. At a meet ing of the vestry of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, of Charlotte, held Monday eve ning, the following delegates were appoint ed to attend the Diocesan Convention at Tarboro, on the 17th hist., viz: Gen.Tho3.

Hertford Su perior Court Henry X. Uncus Rets 8 Years Solicitor Martin Chowan Baptist lu.tltute Wesleyau Female College, Arc. Morfeeesboro' o', N. C, I 9th, 187G, J April 29th, Dear Southerner: At about 5 P. M., on the 24th inst., Judge Moore had the negro Elijah Skinner brought into the Court House at Winton. Skinner's plea cf "not guilty" to indictment for murder n which he was tried and convicted last week was cancelled, and a plea of guilty of manslaughter entered ia his behalf. A verdict of guilty of manslaughter was then directed to be ei.tered in place of that of murder found by the jury. The pris oaer was therefore sentenced to ten years imprisonment in the penitentiary at hard labor. Hertford county Superior Court adjourn ed for the term on Wednesday, 20th inst. Judge Moore shows a commendable dispo sition to dispatch visitors. One everlas ting divorce suit, which had been on the docket for four or five years, was found on examination of plaiatiff's witnesses to have nothing at all in it, and was very sensibly dismissed, in medias rest without being sub mitted to the jury. Henry T. Barnes, a white boy 13 years old was tried for attempt at arson, convic ted and scutenced to 8 years in the peni tentiary. Solicitor J. J. Martin is an able and effi cient prosecuting officer. He sees the strong points of his cases, presents them forcibly and clearly and indnlges in no needletM verbiage. He is spoken of for the republican nomination for Congress in this district, and is in every respect the best man so far named in that connection. If we are to have a radical Congressman, which is not likely, let us have a decent one. Jo. Martin is a gentleman, scholar, and a clever fellow. He knows what some people who think they are smart have never learned how to treat a newspaper man. Not to possess this knowledge is a most unhappy kind of ignorance. The commencement exercises of the Chowan Baptist Institute takes place on the last Wednesday in June (28th.) The Annual Address will be delivered by Rev. T. L, Eaton, of Petersburg. There will be twenty graduates. The customary vocal and instrumental concert comes off at night. Commencement day at the Wesleyan Female College is fixed for Tuesday, 20th June. The exercises of the week, howev er, will commence on the Sunday previous. So soon as the various speakers are selected I will announce their names through the Southerner. Phiz. Campaign Rates. We will send the Souths knee to any address frcm bow to the close of the campaign, about seven months, for ONE DOLLAR. This bids fair to be one of the hottest political campaigns ever fought in North Carolina. The stake to be won by tax payers has never been greater. They are to say whether the State Government shall be reformed, whether the burdens shall be thrown off. The question of the amend ments affects the poor as well as the rich. Therefore every voter should keep thor oughly posted. Thi3 we will earnestly en deavor to make him. club rates. Any one sending us seven new subscri bers with $7, will be entitled to a copy gratis.

Your foot slips in these nasty discharges nn the sidewalk and m the public conveyance and its disagreeable odor, contaminating the breath of the afflicted, renders them otten sive to their associates. There is the high est medical authority for stating that with fully one-half, if not two-thirds, of those af flicted with Consumption of the Lungs, the disease commences as (Jatarrh in the nose or head, the next step being to the throat and bronchial tubes lastly to tbe lungs Howimportant then to give early and prompt attention to a Catarrh !
