Keith, the foreman, and one of the best prin ters in the State, with a few graceful and ap propriate remarks. Mr. Churchill, in ac cepting the cane, briefly expressed his thanks and assured the donors that it would be treasured as a memento of their friendly spirit The head of the cane bears the fol lowing inscription: "Presented to M. W. Churchill by the news-compositors of the Standard office as a token of esteem." Whiskey sets a BuHdBto oil Fire. About one o'clock Thursday a fire was discovered in a building formerly Occupied as a carriage shop on Hargett street, near the residence of Mr. Jeff. Fisher, and on the land belonging to the estate of the late John Fort, deceased. Capt W. W. White, John J. McGuire, and others, who were near, rushed to the spot and put out the fire be fore any serious damage was done, nothing but one workbench being destroyed. Mr. Frank O'Donnell admitted setting the house on fire, and was arrested and taken to jail by officer Robert Crawson. O'Donnell is a quiet industrious citizen when sober. He had been on a heavy two week's bust, and for a day or two had been fighting the de mons of delerium tremens; and doubtless set the fire in self defence. The true verdict is whiskey did it Agricultural Society Cheese-Ma Krsa. Some of our readers may not be aware that a cheese factory, with all the modem improvements, is in full operation on Elk Mountain, in Buncombe county. The cheese made at this factory has been exten sively used in all parts of the South, and compares favorably with the best in the land. The works are under the charge of an experienced Western New York cheese maker, who is a co-proprietor, we leam.with Hon. Nicholas W. Woodfin, of Asheville. We are pleased to learn that Mr. Woodfin has consented at the request of President Battle to read a paper before the Agricultu ral Society during Fair week in October, on "Cheese-making in Western North Caroli na." This is a subject little understood by our people. Such factories will be remu nerative in many parts of the State besides the mountains, and all will do well to listen to the instruction of Mr. Woodfin, - who is familiar with this subject Another Jail Fight. The prisoners in Wake county jail have never failing sources of entertainment If business is dull in the day time they invariably get up a fight, which furnishes sport for the lookers on, while the participants usually get so badly damaged that there would seem to be little fun in it Evenings are often spent until a late hour in singing religious hymns, the singers lending a hand in turn in a free fight, which shows the adaptability to circum stances of true genius. Thursday's fight was more serious than usual. Four men were engaged, named respectively Jo Col lins, Burrell Perry, Frank Ernest and Moore. They gave and took hard blows, until at last Frank Earnest drew a razor. That was a little too savage, and the alarm was raised, and the officers came in and took the razor from his hands. It is fortu nate that the weapon was discovered in this way, and the possibility of his killing his antagonist or assassinating the jailor, happi ly avoided. More Seizures. For several days past Deputy Collector E. J. Parrish and Deputy Marshal R. T. Boshier have been investiga ting revenue matters in Franklin county, resulting in the seizure of the stills and fix tures belonging to E. H. Bonn, Green Gup ton, Eli Langford, Edmund Sykes, Thomas Dean, N. M. Doyle, John Harris, W.B. Cop pedge and James Collins, all of whom are charged with distilling brandy without hav ing their bonds approved, and without having paid tbe special tax. All of the parties except the first three named appear ed before V. S. Commissioner Henry Porter, yesterday, and gave bail in the sum of $500 each to appear at the November term of the United States Court These gentleman are respectable citizens of Franklin county, and some of them com plain bitterly of the alleged fact that the Assistant Assessor in that sub-District in structed them to go ahead with their distil lation, and now they are hauled up and told they are liable to punishment and forfeiture of their stills, fixtures, &c. If they received those instroctians it should transfer some of the severity ot punishment from their shoul ders to the officer under whose advice they were acting. The administration set out with the determination to have efficient offi cers. There seems to be a lamentable fail ure in this instance. ' Baptist Associations.

It classed as middling, and sold to Messrs. Upchurch & Dodd at 84 cents. Much, as has been said about the cotton be ing late, it is many years since He cotton appeared in this market in August. Acctiok. Nine horses were recently con signed, for sale, to Mr. Haye, the livery stable keeper of this city, by James McCul lough, Esq., of Warren county. Two or three of them were put up at auction this morning, but the bidding was so low that the sale was stopped, and the horses will be held for private sale at the stable. The Sentinel thinks the publication of Bishop Atkinson's appointments in the Standard were too late to do any body any good, and attempts to be merry over it, without publishing them itself. The Wil mington Journal requested the Standard and Sentinel to publish them, and tee imme diately did so without comment, being ever ready to respond to a courteous request, even though we could see no use in it.

The inmates or tbe bouse certainly mane a very narrow escape. Muton Uhronide. An Opinion on Cotton. Messrs. Todd, Dunn & Co., of Baltimore, say : We give it as our opinion that cotton will sell high, all through the season, and that in view of the short supply, planters and fac tors can regulate tbe price. Already large sales for future delivery nave been ana are now being made at 31 and 30 cents for September and October, 29 for November, 27 for December, and 27 for January, 1870. Umdes low, mid dling, and if the season prove unfavorable, or an early frost should come, prices would go very high. Death IN A Well. A coloreil man named Moton, engaged in cleaning out a well for Mr. Alexander Fuller, at his Hyco plantation on the Leasburg road, lost his lite last f nday by descending into a well after several ineffectual efforts had been made to send down a lighted candle. Mo ton very foolishly concluded to go down himself, and bad proceeded some distance when be called to them to pull him up, but when about Bix feet from the top of the well be tell backwards out ot tbe bucket, supposed to oe dead wncn nc tell out. Milton Chrtnicle. Poisoned. We learn from Capt. Oba diah Woodson that bis wife and two chil dren were poisoned, on Monday morning. About 10 o'clock in the day, the children asked for coffee, when Mrs. Woodsou order ed the servants in tbe kitchen to make it, Soon the coffee was made, brought in, and Airs. Woodson and tbe children drank oi it, An hour or so afterwards they were all vio lently taken sick, vomiting and giving evi dent signs of being poisoned. Drs. White head Summcrcll was called in, and pro nounced them poisoned, and it is thought by tbe coffee. We are glad to be able to state, however, that Mrs. Woodson and the children are much better and thought to be out of dan ger. Examiner. How Farmers may Supplement the short Corn Crop. A correspondent of the Hillsboro Recorder gives the following valu able suggestions to farmers in every section of the State where the crops arc cut short by the drouth : The corn crop throughout this section of tbe State is a failure; not more than one- half, perhaps not one-third the usual crop can be expected. What is the duty of farmers under tbe circumstances ? Can they by no " hook or crook," (honest hook I mean,) meet the emergency, and in spito of their half-filled cribs, still teed their families, their cattle and horses, sheep and hogs? They can do much, it tbey will "pull off their coats and roll up their sleeves," cease talking about the drought and bard times, end go to work in good earnest, as if tbey were just now beginning tbe years work with the brightest prospect to cheer them. Let them turn over lands on the creeks and branches that can be plowed where they have har vested wheat or oats and sow in buckwheftt halt a bushel or three pecks to the acre, and harrow in ; and they will make from ten to forty bushels to the acre according to the quality of tbe land. It is not too late to sow this week or next week. Should Sep teraber be a seasonable month the yield of buckwheat sowed now will astonish any farmer who has never sowed it. I have sowed it and tnow whereof I sneak. 1 Farmers in this section value the turnip low. Let me assure them that there is no crop that will pay the farmer better than the turnip crop. . Fed on turnips his cows -will yiald him abundant milk and butter throughout the winter. Boil them for bis fattening hogs and they will fatten with half the corn. His sow and pigs will keep in good condition till spring, fed on' boiled turnips alone. Sheep are very fond of tbe turnip (not boiled) and keep fat on them. To make a good yield of turnips the soil mutt be rich. Therefore let every farmer go to teratehing and tcraping immediately ; there is no time to loose ; still there is time enough yet Let him tcrape up every pound oi manure of every description on his prem ises. . Turnips feed greedily on any kind of manure. Dont leave an ounce of horse or cow dung in the stables. Sweep every dust of ashes from the chimneys; a bushel of soot is worth a dollar in gold. Carry all ' the manure you have collected to your turnip patch: Break the land up ; bard or soft, lircak it up ; don't wait for rain. Break the clods, pulverise thoroughly, and when it rains you will be ready to sow. I havo seen good turnips raised from a sowing made tbe 15th of September. Sown the 1st of September the " Strap-leaved Purple Top" or "The White Dutch," with good seasons, will make 400 bushels to tho acre. Don't, expect to get seed : from your neighbors when the time to sow arrives; you may fail to get them, and I don't know but that yon ought to fail. Send one dollar to Allison and Addison, Richmond, Va., and you will get seed enough to sow an i acre: ' ........ i ; POLITICAL , jj-'Y; The tmperialkl suspends its crown over the name of Andrew Johnson flnvruln Cava tlin TJ 111 I n o wit nam.

Mr. Brooks, a stiff Radical, is also after the position. Governor Clayton stnnds on tho Senter platform. The Republicans of Minnesota, of Scan dinavian birth, held a State Convention at Minneapolis on the 12th instant, adopted strong Republican resolutions, and express ed their preference tor Vol IL Juattison, as the Republican candidate for Secretary of btate. A reporter of the New York Sun has had an interview with George H. Pendleton. He opposes Boutwell's financial policy, says Grant has no policy on any question, and is hostile to the 16th amendment; which arc the views he was generally supposed to en tertain. Pendleton camplains that the country is in debt 1 hat is very true. It l'cndleton had had his way the country would not have been thus burdened, neither would there have been any country to be burdened with debt. 1 lie debt is part oi the price we paid Pendleton's friends for our country.

Camp meetings are all the rage just now throughout the States. San Francisco suppresses Chinese bands by law, the noise is so barbarous. The popular pets of the Parisian ladies now arc monkeys. That is not the only place. The British American provinces arc being annexed by rapid emigration to the united mates. It is claimed that warm water, injected into veins of patients, will cure the Asiatic cholera. September is the best month for Virginia watering-places, tbe scenery being enchant inger than in dog days.

We have received numerous complaints of unfairness and illegality from different por tions of the State at the last election. Here is one which comes in a certified form, and which the proper officers should investigate : Messrs Editors: In accordance with the late Act of the General Assembly of North Carolina, tho polls were opened at Joyner's Township in Wilson county on the 5th day of August, to elect two Justices of the Peace, Township Clerk and one Constable and Scnool tJdnlrmttee. Tbe polls were opened at half-past nine, A. M,, and closed about a quarter to eight, P. M. The inspectors le inspectors the election taking a very active interest in so much so as to allow numbers 01 voters to vote twice in the same day. This :fact can be established by respectable men who witnessed it We take this method of en tering our protest against sueh fraud, con testing the election and demand a new elec tion at the same time.

Visitors to London, says the News, have been rather astonished by out Bdby Show; but wbatshall we say to an annual fair for marriagcnble young girls. Such a show took place on the 11th and 12th of last month, and is of immemorial custom among the Roumanians. As the time for the fair approaches, the fathers whose children are marriageable, collect what they can afford as dowry. . Whatever this consists of, it is packed, if possible, into a cart or carriage, and on the appointed day they all fathers, children and chattels start for some tryst ing place, generally chosen among the west ern mountains of Transylvania. When the tair is opened, tbe lathers climb to the top of their carriages and shout with the whole power ot their lungs, "I bave a daughter to marry. Who wants a wife?" The call is answered by some other parent who has a son he is anxious to pair off. Tbe two parents compare notes, and if tho marriage portion is satisfactory, the treaty is there and then concluded. The young man takes possession of his wife with all her goods and chattels, and drives off merrily. Rail Road Progress. We arc glad to learn on good authority that the contractors on all the lines of the work from this place Swannanoa, Duck town and Paint Rock are making rapid progress. On the latter road our friend Col. Ames, at work only two weeks, already has. halt mile graded and ready tor the tracks and Mr. Rohr has his contract two miles, nearly completed, while all along the line to Marshall, ground is broke and hands are at work among the rock blasting, making fine headway. The contractors on the Duck town route, in naywood, have been recalled we understand, to await the running of an other experimental linCj thought to be nearer and cheaper. This will soon be located and everything go thoroughly to work again. On the Swannanoa road the contractors are endeavoring to finish their work in order to be ready to receive the cars when they reach the mountain by a temporary road across the mountain, and in advance of the completion of the Tennessee line, which it is understood will require some time yet to get through. AslieviUe Pioneer. Crops. This season has certainly thus far been of the most unfavorable for crops. Our wheat has been harvested, and is now being threshed; and though a very large area was sown last fall much larger than ever before in this county the total yield will fall far short of that of several previous years. Uur threshers say that the average turnout is about tour dozen to the busbel. The unusually late and wet spring made com planting very late, and the extremely hot and dry weather of June, July and the present month, has well nigh blasted the hopes ot the husbandman lor tins crop this season. How far a good season in the future may bring it out cannot be predict ed. Swce potatoes do not seem to thrive this season ; but Irish potatoes, onions and other early garden vegetables, have pro duced very finely. We shall hope well from the turnip and buckwheat crop this fall. Asheville Pioneer. The breastworks in,front of Petersburg j thrown up by the Confederates, during the late war, extending to the left toward Rich mond about twenty miles, and to the right about twenty-five miles, for the defence of tbe city, are covered with a continuous line of peach trees ot every variety, yielding an abundant crop the present year. This is the only legacy left by our poor fellows who were on the advance line within one hun dred yards of the enemy. Having eaten the fruit while on picket duty, they cast the seed aside and now they appear in one continu ous line of forty-five miles in beautiful trees, yielding the greatest variety of the finest fruit. Disappointcd. An old woman who went into the poultry business some time since under the expecta tion that she could mnke a fortune by sell ing eggs, has quitted it in disgust, because, as she says, " The hens '11 never lay when eggs arc dear, but always begin as soon as they get cheap. Special Notices. PECULIAR ADAPTABILITY. Brandreth's Pills. Their peculiar adaptability to all constitntions as cleansers of tbe bowels and the blood has es tablishcd their great merit. They restore the liver, the spleen and even the heart to healthy action when other remedies have been nscd with out producing any benefit. They do not expose those who use them to any danger, being aa safe as salutary. Extract from Letter to Dr. Brandreth, from C. X. Fay, Esq., P.
