A First-rate Descriptive Letter from a Little Tarboro Girl An Intelligent Observer She Wish es the Editor of Southerner to Attend the Next Centennial A "Grandma" in Name, a Bright Littla Girl in Nature. ' Tai:bm:o', X. C, I November 1st, 1870. Dear Editor: Having visited the great Centennial will give you a few i:ej;s of what 1 saw, as well as to let you know I did aot get lest or meet with any adventures on ac count of country manners, &c. I was more pleased with the dolls, which were real works of art, having real eyebrows and hair. One wa3 attending a wash tub. one ironing, one sitting at a sewing machine while another Sat up with a book in her hand lookino- as though she was very much interested. ART GALLERY. The picture of a little girl with blonde complexion and hair, dress ed in white with a blue sash, seemed to strike every one's mind as per fection, valued at three thousand dollars, a picture of different varie ties cf rabbits was very life, worth sis tliousund dollars, an engraving called shadow of a wreck, and a woman who was climbing upon it, was reflected in the water beneath was by far tne best crayon speci men, executed by i North Caroli nian. The statues of Christ on the cross, the two Mary's ono of Washington and many others, the subjects of which, 1 did not under stand, the crowd was so great that we had to pass very rapidly or be crushed, one lady had her arm bro ken and 1 was almost suffocated. WORKS OF ART. Two beautiful swiss watches which gave you the days of the week as well as the month besides giving you the hours, one valued at six, the other at three thousand dollars. The large diamond next demanded my attention for what woman would he blind to one, val ued at eleven thousand dollars. A vase of silver on a granite pedestal, ornamented by Goddesses, prints and Hewers, valued at twenty-five thousand dollars, vases of china at forty thousand dollars a pair, Chi nese furniture of colored ivory, pans, boxes, beds, and almost every article one could think of. Chan deliers of amber holding candles, a splendid climax chandelier, Lc. MANUFACTURES, INDUSTRIES. The weaving of silks, neckties, sashes, handkerchiefs, the spooling of cotton, the making of nails, blowing glass in all its different forms, vase3,birds, slippers, bottles, &c. The silk worms and worms were also exhibited. When one thinks of how many machines are running to perform ail the different work and realizes that it is done by one engine, if one can realize it, it is wonderful, the Canliss engine which performs all this work, is more American in character than any thing you see. THE MUSEUM. Of stuffed animals, birds, fish of all varieties that could not bo kept alive, the insects of all countries even down to a tick, which J had no idea would occur to any cue to put on exhibition, when you know, Mr. Editor, one can see them at any time. The Santa Barbara grape vine, the bark of a large tree which is cut in diamonds ornamented by quilled ribbon to form pincushions, the Mississippi cabin chincked with cot ton, at a little distance looks like marble, a piece of needle worked tapistry representing n party dress ed as a bride and also the same lady in another dress was realy fine enough to be mistaken for a paint ing. The cannons of all ages show much progress in their manufacture but, as this was to be the great show of civil progress, I think these things might have been left out ; Canadian shoes and slippers beautifully em broidered. The floral display is very perfect, tha fruit3 and trees of all countries is enough for itself, to think over and study for a month. Gen. Washington's carriage and horses looked as though they might be waiting for him, the carriage looked very different from any I ever saw. it would be impossible for any one to see everything ia two days. Being my first trip, 1 cannot re member all at once, how much I did see, even the older folks say. they were bewildered by so much to see, such a crowd constantly passing you on, ono lady dropped her porte monie six time3 which 1 was lucky enough to pick up tor ner. bhe returned safely with her aggage except five hats which she- had purchased for herself and oth bers, which were completely crush ed by the boxes having been aporo priated as seats or footstools as the case might be, one hat was for a bride, imagine the disappointment, if yoa can. iZoping ray dear Mr. Editor, that you may be at the next Centennial, I am Yours, &c, Grandma. From the Chicago Tribune. E0V7 H3 COT THE KEY. The Story of a Sank EotTsery That Didn't Cons by Telegraph. . A few days ago about dusk a stranger called at the residence of a bank cashier in St. Louis, and introducing himself, said that he desired 3privato conversation on business of imports ace. The cash ier thereupon led him to a private room, gave orders that they were not to bo disturbed, seated himself, folded his arms, and desired his mysterious acquaintance to com municate the object of Lis visit. The man coughed once or twice, tuen said ; 'Beirg the cashier of this here financial institution, of course you keep the key of the safe?' The cashier said he did. 'And you know about the bank robbers that go round and tie and gag cashiers and their families, and with pistols at their heads compel them to give up the keys V The cashier said he did. 'And you have heard a'.out the Davenport Brothers and the Spirit ualists and things ?' The cashiev said he had. 'Now,' said the stranger, 'I've been studying up the whole business, and I have found out how lo over come them.' 'You don't say so.' 'Yes, sir. For 5 I wil! impart to you a secret which mav at same future time save your life and the funds intrusted to your care. I will show you how to untie any series of knots, however complica ted; to remove a gair from Your mcuth, and, in fact, to set yourself freo. I can release myself in 2:14 and with a week's p.actice I'll bet that you can show better than three minutes. You see the advantage of my system ? There is no need to resisn and get shot; all you have to do is to let them tie you up, and as soon as they've taken the key and gone, why you just let yourself loose and "ive the alarm. The cashier said it was a remark able invention. 'You bet it is,' said the inventor, 'and as I never take any monev for it till my customers are satisfied of my honesty in dealing with them. HI tell, you what 1 11 do. Just let me gag and bind you, and then T give you simple directions what to do, and if you aon t unloose your self in five minutes and express your entire satisfaction with the process, 1 u give you $10. ll you find that I am a man cf my word, you'll pay me $5.' The cashier said that nothing could be fairer. 'Another thing,' continued the visitor; 'I'm a poor man, and this secret is my only stock in trade, so I'h ask you not to teach any one else how to do it, for that would spoil my business.' Ihe cashier consented to the ar rangement. 'Take this $19 bill', said the visitor. 'If Z fail, you keep it, if you are satisfied, you will return it it to me with o. And now this is how we do it.' So saying he took a roll of cord and a gag from his pockets, and with great dexterity tied that cashier hand and foot, and crairtrctA Lim sn flint, bfi poolil not. e-co1"" " wink. 'Now you are tied pretty firmly, aint you? You wouldn't think you couid ever get loose, would yoa ?' j. he cashier looked the repuos he could not speak. 'I don t think you could myseif, said the inventor, 'and now let me tell you my name is Jesse . James, lie'notorious tram robber, and if you don t tork over that key in three seconds, I'll cut your throat from ear to ear. I bog your par don: you can t, but I 11 take it my self. It's no trouble and, turning that cashier over on his back like a turtle, he took the key. 'I won't take your pocketbook,' he said, 'for the lr'' is yours, as I dou't think you will be able to get loose in five minutes, or five hours either. So long, sonny,' and with a cour teous bow, he quitted the" apart ment, and proceeded to the banks, which he rifled as completely and leisurely as if he had been one ot the directors. The sad ovent has cast a gloom over the community. Ho?; to &3t Along. Dou't stop to tell storijs in busi ness hours. if you havo a place of business, be found there when wanted. No man can get rich by sitting around the stores and saloons. Never fool ;n business matters. Have order, system, regularity, and also promptness. Do not meddle with business you know nothing of. Do not kick every stone in your path. More miles can be made in one day by going steadily than by stop ping. Pay as you go. A man of honor respects his word aa ho does his bond. Help others when you can, but never give what you cannot afford because it is fashionable. Learn to say no. No necessity of snapping it out dog fashion, but say it firmly and respectfully. Use your own brains rather than those of others. Learn to think and act for your self. Keep ahe&d rather than behind the times. For Tarboro Southerner. Sensible Suggestions from a Live Man . CLOSETS. Closets are queer things. When you see a new house going up, you may go all over it and through it and never find sign of one of them. I have racked my brains and both ered carpenters with questions about this matter, but never could locate a single closet. They seem to come into the house after i is built. Old houses have more of these places than the modern. Our grand mother's house had sundry and various nooks and corners. One of these contained preserves, dried apples, dried peaches, strings of onions, a barrel of sugar, several other varieties of good eatings and an old flax wheel. By the way, did you ever see an old house of any consequence at all that did not have an old flax wheel either in the gar ret or in a closet. Our grand mothers must have made all their clothes and those of all their fami lies of flax. There is one curious fact about closets that I never could under stand. Wind always blows out of them, and never by any means blows into them. It does not mat ter whether the closet is made in side the house, near the middle, ssy, or next to the weather board ing the wind always blar33 out of it. You can't mike fire hot enough to warm a room that has a closet in it; for there's always enough wind in these places to cool the room faster than the fire warms it. I verily believe old Acolu3 kept his winds iu a closet instead of a, cave. I'll tell you what's t aggravating. Just get you a nice book, somo cold night, draw your tablo to the fire, place your chair with it's back near the closet door (it don't matter how tight you shut that door) and begin to read. In a half hour your feet will feel like balls of ice and a cold streak about an inch wide will mark you from your shoulders down. Another strange thing: Open that rascally door wide, put your hand inside the miserable closet &nd there's not a breath of air stirring in it. Shut the door and a perfect toirent cf the cold wind pours out of the crack. I now understand from whence our grand fathers got their "rheu matics'. Mr. Editor, yoa know everything (or you ought to, being an editor) tell me where the wind comes from, that comes from the closet. But if you can't we will net "fall out" about it, nor come to blows. Arachel. Characteristic Flirts- (From Harper's Bazar.) The flirt is ubiquitous. There is no nation and no habitable spot of terra fir ma under the sun where she does not spread her snares and weave her spells. It is not neces sary for the accomplishment of her avocation that she should be beau tiful, or wise, or cultivated, or even well-bred. We find her among the ignorant, the unpolished, and foolish virgins perhaps oftencr than else where. Her type doubtless exists among savage tribes, ia the camp of the Comanche3, and llourishea no better ia the tropics than in the temperate zones. The ono quality which eecms necessary for her complete success is youth, though the old flirt does not Yet share the extinction of the dodo, to be sure. The desire to please with which na ture has endowed us all, is surely an innocent and laudable emotion ; but iu the heart of the flirt it has become exageratcd into the wish to exact the administration and atten tion of every man within her radius of vision. Her chief object in life is to decoy certain of the sterner sex into a declaration of love, and then to retreat into the asylum of friendship. She counts her offers of marriage as the Pawnee counts his scalps, and it makes small odd3 to her whether she trespasses upon the rights of other women or no. But let her not plume herself, upon her acquirements and attractions, since every woman has the making of a flirt in her, if she would conde scend to the task, which is alike degrading to sensibility and sense. Bat upon what may the flirt con gratulate herself ? Does the lover, after his eyc3 arc open, continue to love the person who has wiled his heart away only to gratify her per sonal vanitv? Has she not over reached and beggared herself she whose motive power was the love of admiration ? One of her great dis advantages consists in the fact that i sho becomes superficial inher emo tions, has no deep feelings. She is perpetually " making believe " love, and dishonestly gaining the affection of others, for which she has no intention and no power of rendering an equivalent. She re sembles ono who contracts a debt, perfectly aware of his own insolven cy. Who does not know ono or more of this genus, who exercises her small arts upon whatever unfors tunate happens in her path, be he married or single, dunce or savant, poor er elegant, in his dotage or in his teens; who would flirt with a chimney-sweep rather than remain idle ; to whom tho church is not too sacred nor the street too public for her purposes ? Yet we make hold to say that this habit of flirtation is fatal to delicacy of character and elevation of mind. IIowLata May a L over Stay ; Even amid the turmoil of a Presi dential canvass, and with the great Centennial to write about, two of our New York cotemporaries deem the above question of sufficient im portance for editorial discussion. .4nd Miss Abbie J. Terry, a young American write, comis to the front with this advice: 'It is an imposition on any well bread girl to keep her up later than 10:30 o'clock, when you have the opportunity of seeing her often. If you always leave her with the wish in her bcart that you had staid longer, you. gain so much. Never run the risk of wearying her with your presence. WToo a woman bravely. If there is anything hu miliating to a woman it is to have a lover, the wishes to honor weak and vapid, ever vielking and half afraid of hor. She longs to tell him to act like a man.' From which it will be seen that it is not safe for a lover to stay as long as tho young lady will let him. But, Miss Terry, if it is an imposi tion to keep a young lady sitting up in her own parlor until 10' o'clock, whac do you c.ill keeping her at a ball dancing until 4 o'clock": In the one case she is spending her time with at least a possible be trothed; in the other, she is dancing with rtouhle ihe number of pcroon. she can reasonably expect to bo en gaged to; in the parlor the gas is turned down low for economy's sake; at the other there is a waste of light. 'Eirly and often' applies well enough to the Irishman's vot- ing, but or ten ana late 13 not tne Terry style of courting. Mies Ter ry's admonition would have more weight if wc wero right sure she was not an old maid. The ladie3 control this matter pretty much as they please; it is their prerogative, and the editors had better keep their hands off. Sometimes, doubtless, theY would gladly get rid of a masculine visi tor before Miss Terry's hour, and upon other occasions they would prolong a visit an hour or two. The Cumct has only this advice to give when the lover does start, whether it be 10J or V21, keep him going and don't let him stand around the doorstep and the front gate. It takes some of the genus longer to get from the parlor to the street than it does to walk a dozen squares afterward. Why a Woman Travelod in Han's sat in the last cell of the row at the Central Station, says the Beading Eagle, and looked very much displeased. Over her knee hung a heavy dark coat, ier shirt was of gray linen, and about her neck was a paper coliar. She wore a green neck-tie, dark vest and dark pantaloons. Her hair was dark and red, t.nd it was care fully parted on the right side. She would at any time pass for a gentle youth of about eighteen summers. 'Of course i'm a woman,' she said to an Eagle reporter, 'i told them so when wc were arrested. We came to this town by pike, and my husband took me out on the hill near the cemetery, where they found us, where he said i might wait until he brought our clothes from the express office. I had in- tended to change these men's cloth es for my own attire a3 soon as he came out. I think it is a shame for us to bo treated in this manner.' She was asked why she wore men's clothes. 'Because it is easier to travel this way, and my husband and mrself can get along much bet ter. If a man and woman travel along the road, they are subject to all kinds of abuse, but if two men pass along, nothing is said to them. Another thing, if we want to stop at a hotel we can do so much easier ifldress this way. We've been traveling a good long distance to gether, and we've met with a gocd deal of trouble.'

I'll bo ono happy woman about tho eighth of jVovcmber. We'll have cheerful fires, games, comfort and 'Charlotte,' solemnly interrupted the husband, 'can't you understand this thing? Tho election will oc cur on the seventh prox., of course. After that dato I must help count up the returns, verify them, put our clubs in training for the next cam paign, examine the lies of the op position, and so forth, and it may be next -April before I get through.

Wednesday night as the train from the North stopped at some station between this place and Greensboro, tho dozing passengers were awakened by some one giving a loud cheer for Vance. The con ductor made a search though the car to discover who it was that would thus venture to interrupt tho slumbers of his fellow-passengers. lt last the individual was pointed out by a a3scnger who was sitting near him, and when approached, was iounu to be peacefully slumbering.

Charlotte Observer. To Provent Hyacinths Having Short Stems. Get some stout brown paper and cut it into squires of a suitable size, and then roll them up into funnels, similar in form to the pointed bags in which grocers put moist sugar. They should be from six to nino inches long and as soon as rolled into shape pasted up tho edge to keep them firm; if for plants in pots, the base (i the funnel should bo largo enough to go over tho bulb and a portion of tho soil; if for glasses, it should fit tho outside of the upper rim of the glass. Tho pointed end should be cut off, so that when placed over the plants, the light will come in at the top only; the flower stem will rise up rapidly to reach it, and as soon as it is as long as you desire, take off the fun nel and allow it to bloom. After a little practice with this method, you will be able to grow them all of a height, which very much enchancea their beauty where a number of them are arranged in a window. Gardener's Idonthh.
