Mala aad U vm It*. OBEISANCE TO TIIE PUBLIC. — • TRI- "WEEKLY GAZETTE AND COMET. Time was whon this old and well-known journal oatored daily for the edification and entertainment of it# host« of readers and patrons. But, times change and things chango with thom. The advent of War, followed, alas ! by so many »ad and startling changes in the condition and pursuits of the Southern people, rendered tt necessary to drop the dally publication and assume instead a simple weekly tseue. Tho Wai terminating, and the dawn of a more quiet and prosperous future appear ing, afford now encouraging earnest of a gradual thougU sure return to tho arts and pursuit» of peace, on the part of our people. Embracing the occasion, therefore, to fall in and keep pace with the ateady pro gress towards a brighter eondition in tho affairs of our common country, the nnder signed have formed a mutual association for the purpose of carrying on the news paper, j 'b printing and bindery business of the Gazette and Comet tßce. Dating from to-day, tho Gaulle and QjmH emerges from a weekly to ti tri weekly Journal. To meet the enlarged expenses consequent upon this alteration, we confidently rely upon a generous in crease of patronage. This we shall strivo to merit by the labor and attention which we intend devoting to tho several depart ments of business wo have undertaken mutually to conduct, comprising as above stated, the newspupor and job offices and bindery. As soon a» practicable, the Gazelle and Omei will be issuod daily. J. C. C habrottb , T. B. R. II atoii, U.A. PIKJC. SP EC I AIj N OTIC E —TO BUSINESS MEN AND FAMILIES. Wo intend that a copy of the present number of our paper shall be left at all, or nearly all, the family residences and principal places of business in our oity. We shall do this with a view of early en listing tho attention of our fellow citixens to the claims of our journal upon them for a more liberal and extended patronage hereafter. Wc shall be thankful to every one feel ing inclined to subscribe or advertise, to favor us with their orders as soon as pos sible. Subscriptions will be taken at the rate of one dollar each per month, al ways payable in advance, but no subscrip tion received for a less period than three months. Advertisers will find it to their advan tage to give us a call, in every instance where they desire to contract for a certain quantity of advertising and for a specified time. IIukp Backed People .—A French mau who has bump-backs on the brain has devoted much time in in vestigationa as to the mouography of hump-backed persons. It is in Europe, under the temperate zone that he has found the most. They are most numerous in Spain, prin cipally in a small locality at the loot of the Sierra Morena. One is found there in every thirteen in habitants; in South America, Bue nos Ayres, etc., he foiiud the least, In France, the department of tho Loire contains the greatest num ber; the deformity exists there like an epidemic; in Orleans the backs seem to be cut in every shape and pattern. A singular fact is this The deformity has an intimate rap port with the configuration aud the aspect of the country where it is produced. Thus, the bumb-backs of the Pyrenees have the shape of points and peaks, while those of the inhab itants of the sea side show from top to bottom as successive layers. The hump backs of the plains are flat and spread out something like mushrooms. Taking the average of figures of all the hump-backs on the globe, the statistician comes to the conclusion that there is not les» than one hump-backed person in every thousand individuals. The average height of every hump being seven and a half inches, and the given population of the earth being one thousand millions, in multiply ing the million of hump-backs it contains with the height of the humps it will give 625,000 feet. That is to say, in placing all the hnmps on the top of the other, one could climb by that strange ladder of Jacob, over ten Cordilleras, tweoty Mount Blancs, eighty Mount Toms, to which could be added, to make up the difference the Pyramids of Egypt and the steeples of all tbe churches of Europe. lb* ItotteM»«! Our "American Citizens of African Descent. " It was never intended by Provid onoe that man should be placed on this earth to rove about in idleness, while so many "broad acres" exist to be re claimed and brought under his culti vating hand. The abolition of slavery by no means lessens the obligations of the blacks to toil and labor for sup port, and it is high time that the scales should fall from their eyes, that tbey may be brought to see and understand this matter in its iullest import.— The President of the United States, also the Governors of the several Southern States, and the Generals of the Army in command of their respec tive districts South, have made re peated arid emphatic declarations of lato, illustrai ive of their ideas and con ptiohs of freedom, assuming its true meaning to be "the rijyht to labor for one's own Rupport and that of his fami* ly," and thus to promote "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." This principle and prerogative is a condi tion precedent to tho general welfare and interests of society, as well as indi vidual honor and good standing ; and being properly understood and exer cised, will not fail to bring conviction to the minds of all, both white and black, th appe late Nort T. I wou] idenc meam tude men It no will the sympj cide I y bei ing t Your condi lation hund peel appr henu goveri and laws: kno nee all pie the gove: com the I otheri of pr< Yo serve shoul You yoursi able struct from childri But tcp>e prosperous must labor not merely when you feel like it, or for scanty support, but in dustriously and steadily, with a view to making and laying up something for yourselves and your families. you are idle, you will become vicious and worthless; if vicious and worthless you will have no friends, and will at last perish. "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat broad all the days of thy life." Tho same Providence that has bestowed freedom upoa you h»® told you that diligence in business is required of all His creatures, and you cannot expect that your race will es cape ultimate extinction, if you wilfully violate or disregard this one of His great commands. Freedom does not mean that one may do as he pleases, but that every one may by in dustry, frugality and temperance, im prove his condition, and enjoy the fruits of his own labors, as long as he obeys the laws, I have no prejudice against you. On the contrary, while 1 am a white man, tud while toy lot ig with my own color, yet I sympathize with you as the weaker rac® ; and I cannot forget that during tbe rebell ion many of you fought for the preser vation of the Union, and that tbote of you who remained at home in the then slave holding States, were for the most part docile and faithful, and made no attempt, by force of arms, to gain even their own freedom. I will see to it, as far as I can, that you baye your liberty ; that you are protected io your property and persons, and that you are paid your wages. But, on tbe other hand, I will set my face against those of you who are idle and disipated and prompt punishment will be inflict ed for any breach of the peace or vio lation of tbe law. In fine, I will be your friend as long as Jrou are true to yourselves and obedient to the laws, and as long aB you shall labor, no mat tor how feebly, if honestly and earnest ly, to improve your condition. It is my duty, as <ar as I may, to render tbe Government *'a terror to evil-doers and a praise to them that do well and this I will endeavor to do in rela tion to the whole people of the State of North Carolina, "without fear, favor or affection, reward, or the hope of re ward." t&F The residents of New Orleant have contributed largely and with hearty energy to the development of the mercantile and other interests of the city and State. They have gone to work with enterprise and capital, and, to a great extent, have rebuilt ' commercial prosperity here. They have been cordially received by the old citizens, and have vied with them, in honorable fashion, in restoring New Orleans to her once proud position.— ave not been of tbe crowd of ns and place hunters that have mockery of Louisiana politics, sted the money of an impover mmunity; but they have been ;t business men, and have won eceived respect therefor. Of there have been exceptions, and miserable interlopers, exception» prove the rule.— under deep obligations to our tizens, and should be ready to ledge them. The meu who ne the most to disgrace tho his Louisiana politics in the past ars, h«ve been old residents.- t the State pay-rolls for the vieri of this affirmation.— N. O. oreion War .—We have at semi-official assurances from gton, that no new demand baa ade upon England with refer to the Alabama claim. Tbe for damage bas been made time to time during tbe past ears, but no more emphasis has cently given it than when first ed. thing is very cortain: The of tbe United States and their nment have made up their to stop fighting for the present, has no longer any attraction# for Whatever we may say about the doctrine, or the Alabama de tions, we do not propose to go r with either England or France can decently escape a conflict, the waste of the civil war is re and our finances have got into ng order, we may have a little with England or France to keep nds in; but just now )he univer ankee nation is intent upon , and nothing but a most intoler [provocation would provoke us in ght.-iV.

Mr. Booth says : It has pleased God to afflict my family as none other was ever afflicted. "Tbe nature, manner and extent of tlx» crime which has been laid at oar door have crushed me to the very earth. My detestation and abhor rence of the act, in all its attributes, are inexpressible ; my grief is unut terable, and were it not for the sym pathy of friends such as yoa, would be intolerable. ty* Governor Sharkey, the Pro visional Governor of Mississippi, was a Bell man in 1860, Judge Parsons, Provisional Governor ot Alabama, was a Douglas man, and W.
