In an attempt to do so, a day or two since, a small steamer was run into by another steamer, on board ol which was a collector, and sunk. We lire opposed to a tax ou any commodities necessary to sus tain life. "Climbing a Log." Wc have often heard whiskey called by various names, such as "split skull," "tangle leg," &c. but never knew until yesterday it was called by the name or caption which heads this article. Meeting un old friend wlin was rather "top heavy," we enquired "what's the matter ?" The prompt answer was, "Oh, a little dizzy I've been climbing a log." A school for colored children was opened in Elizabeth City, on the 11th inst, with one hundred and thirty-nine pupils register ed, and in a few days after the' number reached one hundred and sixty. The Car olinian says the number will go to two hun dred. The success being greater than was anticipated, Prof. Cardozo has found it ne cessary to send for additional taichers. . Cotton Rogues. The Roanoke Netcs1 correspondent, writing from Ringwood, in Halifax county, says "that the farmers ol that section are losing much oj thcircotton in the fields, some of the rogues of that coun try preferring to "raise" cotton in this man ner. Says he, 'the crops are yielding better than was at one time anticipated perhaps two thirds of a crop will be realized." Home Industry. On our streets yester day, was exhibited a cart load of willow baskets, manufactured in the county of Johnston, by the lady who was offering them for sale. This willow is native to our soil, and these baskets, of various patterns, were quite as handsome as those brought from the North and offered in onr stores. We re gret we do not know the name of this mod el cf a woman bnt, then we felt a little too modest to ask. Nevertheless, she hath done well, and deserves great credit. Death op a North Carolinian in Georgia. The Griffin (Ga.) Star announces the death of Judge Garry Grice, in Favette county, on the 19th inst The Star says Mr. Grice was probably the oldest man in the county, and had been a man of wonderful physical vigor, as well as remarkable talent He occupied at different times positions of trust both in Georgia and in his native State, North Carolina. He was an honest, upright man, and died respected by all who knew him. Mr. Grice has relatives now living in this county Wake. N. C. Synod. Wc regret very much not having before this hour, noticed the action of the late Synod, (Presbyterian) convened in Morganton. From the Western Democrat we copy the following : " The Synod (Pres byterian) of North Carolina, at the late ses sion in Morganton, appointed the fifth Sab bath of October as a day for special and united prayer to the Great Head of the Church in behalf of the cause of Foreign Missions. The Synod organized a new Presbytery by striking off a portion of the territory be longing to the old Presbytery of Concord, to be called The MeclUnburg Presbytery. The first meeting of Mecklenburg Presbytery is to be held at Steel Creek Church. The next session of Synod will be held in Raleigh, in October, 1870. At a meeting of the citizens of Mecklen burg County, Virginia, held last week in Boydton, a Committee was appointed to take into consideration the propriety of getting legal possession of the Roanoke Valley Rail Road. This Road, as we un derstand, once existed between Clarkcsville . snd the Raleigh and Gaston Road, at a point about two miles South of Ridgeway that its iron was sold, during the war, to the Confederate States fur the purpose of laying the track between Greenslxro' and Dan villethat, for the iron, Confederate bonds were paid. Sim e which time, the road has been dead the bonds worthless and the iron gone. u Legal posc?Rion,n then, amounts to nrthing. Greenbacks are neces sary to put the road in operation ; and if ever in operation again, the Stockholders DresV;e, will be very cautious as to who iev mt V Directors and the Directors, as n who t ley make President While on tbe subject, we must say a word to the farmers of Mecklenburg and adioinin" counties in regard to the impor tance of re-organizing the MecKienuurg Ag ricultural Society, and making preparations f. on ..vlrihition in Charlotte next Fall. These annual gatherings are pleasant and r.rofitabl- to the city man as well as the country man, and it will require but a small contribution from each to purchase grounds nd make the necessary preparations.

Child Burned to Death. The Char lotte Observer says, that Policemen Black welder and Taylor, while on their rounds Monday night, and smelling elort 'burning, burst open ..a kitchen door,', where, they found a child had been left alone, and had made its way to the fire, and getting into it, was so horribly luirned that it died the next day." It is useless to utter" the usual words of warning to mothers; as it seems there are just so many children to be sacrificed anna ally, by wantonness on the part of their pa rents. . J i A Long and Cold Winter. We may safely calculate, from the premonitory symp tons, that we are to have a long and cold winter. It is a fact remarked by all our ex changes that never, within the recollection of the oldest inhabitants, have we had as much, and, as continuous cold weather, so early in the Fall Large white frosts, so common have they become, that they have ceased to elicit even a passing remark. "Spits" of snow have been seen in various portions of the States while "hi? adjoining States we have reports of snow and snow storms. Then let us be provident let us prepare for the severest rigors, and, in ma-1 king provision for self, we must remember the poor; pet, vie must! the duty is imperative. After all the croaking of the discontent ed, the cotton - orop "comes in" equal to a two-thirds yield, as well in onr own State as in the . Cotton States, soiith of us. Here abouts we do not set up as'a cotton growing community ; we have, however, some pretty good patches, and one of these lots, of seven hundred acres, will yield three hundred and fifty bags of five hundred pounds each. This is doing remarkably well, when we re member that the season was very un propi tious. Had the -latter . rains come at an earlier day, this field of seven hundred acres would have turned out six hundred bags. . Down in Georgia, we notice also that the yield is much above the expectations of the planters. The same may be said of portions of South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi The two Swindlers :Westlake ?and Bergman. The Wilmington Star of yester day says : Last evening as these two swind lers were being conveyed to the depot of the Wilmington and Manchester Railroad, 1 en route to Georgia, under the charge of the of ficers deputed by the Sheriff for that pur pose, one of them, W. B. Westlake, when at the cornor of Mulberry and Front streets, broke away from the guard and ran for dear life. Seeing that he was about to suc ceed in making his escape, one of the offi cers fired at him with a pistol, striking him in the back, but not hurting him very" bad ly. He was thereupon secured and, with bis companion, delivered over to the Deputy Sheriff of Savannah and another officer, who had a requisition for their bodies from Gov ernor Holden, on the application of the Gov ernor of Georgia. .- , The . Goldsboro' Messenger, of yteterday, learns "from a gentleman just from Green county, that a colored man named Ned Blount was killed on Mr. Elias Blount's plantation, near Adam's bridge, in that county, on' Saturday night last. If seems that on several occasions cotton had been stolen from Mr. Blount'sgin-house, and Ned, who was . in Mr. B.'s employ, and a very faithful man, had offered his services to watch for the robbers. Taking his position near the gin-honse on the night alluded to he did not have to wait long ere the cotton thieves made their appearance, and from all indications had commenced carrying off cotton, when Ned, advancing towards them, fired. It seems, however, that these cotton stealing scoundrels had another party on the watch, who shot Ned before he had time to fire a second time, killing him instantly. Several negroes are strongly suspected, and much excitement prevails in the neighbor hood, especially among the colored people, who, it is, said, are using every effort to bi ing the guilty parties to justice." - Fighting fob the Old Flab. A Con federate soldier, who. served in the 14tu Al abama regiment,' fought all jthrougls the war, aud surrendered at Appomattox, en listed in the 2d U. S, regiment here a few days ago. He will now .fight for the old flag. We see it stated that a good many ex Confederates are enlisting in different places in the regular army. Euntsville Advocate. I That is so, we are personally acquainted with the soldiers of this garrison, (Co. E, 8th Infantry) who served in North Carolina regiments during the Confederacy, and who are now proudly wearing the blue, resolved to give up their heart's blood in defence of the old flag. These soldiers are remarkably intelligent and faithful in the discharge of their duties, and like all true and brave veterans of the Lost Cause, are free from the prejudices and antipathies of the stay at home feather bed soldiers during the bloody conflict. - We can state on reliable authority that fully 20 per cent, of the men composing the regiments and companies now garrisoning the Southern States, were, formerly of the rank and file of the Southern armies, and these men in every instance live socially and kindly with their brethren in arms.' Unlike those parties who probably from cowardice or worse never shared the hardships and dangers of war, still excite dissensions and animosity by clamoring for the dead issues of the past, (which should now ot least be buried in oblivion,) while the men that bore the brunt and fury of battle are found rally in;; round the old flag. FAsmoxs for Ladies. The Local of the Jonesboro' Tcnn. Tribune, is out; in the fol lowing strain . relative to adopting, the fashions. When we first read the article, we lclt inclined to administer a" severe repri mand to, as wc were about to believe our er ring brother.' But we can see sympathy in the article sympathy ,4ir"the les wealthy but we mnst say, 'in onr community they are not looked upon ns "uncultivated" or devoid of taste of refinement. The Tribune says "it makes no difference what a new bonnet costs, or a new dress, or those high heeled beautiful little kid balmorals may j cost Still, if one lady who ranks high in society is lucky to secure something of the kind, all must dress the same way, or they are looked upok as poor, uncultivated, and with but little taste as to refinement. Are these not facts in some neighborhoods? They certainly are. It should not lie so. We all know there is nothing niecr, lovelier or more beautiful than to see a lady neatly and comfortably dressed. But those who cannot afford it i-liould not seek to follow after the gay fashions that last but a short season, when they can nnd will bo admired just as much with chcaiicn goods it neatly made Contentment with life is the great thing at last, and whether rich or poor, with tidiness and prudence all arc loved and admired. Young ladies, if your fathers are in rather needy circumstances, discard the idea that you arc looked upon as being slighted by others, and work to secure the happiness of all around you. Then you will feel as hap py as your neighbors. RoTUUKO THIf PlTTJ Parrtui 1... 1 ' wucii luivu uwn am sled in Wilmington, charged with rob ing tile vuba.ot her stores.

Passing np Hillsboro Street last evening, we met an ox drawing a wagon, on which was more than a half cord of oak wood quite a load for two horses. The noble animal stepped slowly but surely, and his owner valued him at $75. He is worth every cent of it The Western Sentinel learns that a man by the name of Brown was shot and killed in the northern part of Stokes one day lost week. We have not learned the name of the party who did the shooting. The diffi culty we believe occurred about the division of some corn." The burning of the steamer StonewaU on the Mississippi, and the fearful loss of human life, when the steamer was so near the shore, is exciting general comment There was a recklessness in the management of the ves sel inexcusable ; but as the Captain, Clerks and officers all perished, there is no one to account for the sad calamity. Gold, it is reported, is selling in Hayti at 180,000 per cent, or $1800 in paper for one in gold.

The gold, however, kept on rising, and pork is selling at $50,000 a barrel. We have received several answers to our request for correspondence. That's right, send us a letter every week, or more if neces sary. Those who have written to us will please accept this as a reply to their com munications, for we have not time to write letters. We shall always be glad to hear from any of our friends who have matters of interest to communicate. We regret to learn that Arch. J. McDon ald, of Harnett county, accidently shot and killed himself on the 12th of the present month, by the discharge of one barrel of his gun while he was engaged in loading the other. If men happen to accidents in the nse of fire arms, what may we expect of children, 9 and 10 years old, who are daily seen with guns going on a hunt ! We hope we shall hear of no accidents to the boys, but we fear we shall. The New Berne Timet records the follow ing shameful outrage : "A few days ago a colored man named Lewis Johnson, living on Blount's Creek, Beaufort county, a car penter by trade, had just returned from his days work, about 8 o'clock P. M., washed, and as he went to the door to throw ont the water some nuknown person shot him and his whole family; some of them very serious ly. The gun was loaded with bristol shot, and besides bitting Johnson, some shot pass ed him and hit bis wife and child who hap pened to be in range inside the house. The Ohio Cullicator says the following receipt is worth a thousand dollars to every housekeeper : Take one pound of sal soda and a halt pound of unslacked lime, and put them in a gallon of water ; boil twenty minutes, let it stand until cool ; then dram off and put in a jug or jar; soak your dirty clothes over night, or until they are wet through, then wring them, and rub on plen ty of soap, and with water add one teacup- ful of the washing fluid; boil half an hour or more, rinse, and your clothes will look better than by the old way of washing twice before boiling. This is an invaluable receipt and every poortrred Woman should try it, Steam Link to Baltimore. We under stand a steamer is on her way here from Bal timore, and that a regular line will lie estab lished from that point The more the mer rier.: Norfolk has the inside track, bnt her merchants will have to wake up, and adver tise beyond their present investment in prin ter's ink. Washington (JT. C.) Intelligencer. We have a deep sympathy for the people of Washington. Their town was almost "blotted ont" by the ravages of war, and being cut oil from the world, save by water, it is in the backwoods. We trust, however, the day is not distant when the people of that section will enjoy railroad facilities from some point on the Wilmington road. The old town would again build np, and en joy that prosperity which was once the pride of her people. Charley Burch, the Youthful Brig and. The Milton Chronicle says sometime afro, this youth robbed the store ol Mr. Da vid Patterson, was caught, convicted, and sentenced to the penitentiary for six months, and that Judge Tnurgce, in view of the youthfulness of Burch, tempered the law with mercy. After his release, he went to Milton were a subscription was handed around to raise money to take him to the far west. Fobbing the funds he loitered around and attended the Danville Fair, where he stole Capt Joseph J. Yarborough's horse. He rode the horse into Rockingham county, and staid all night at Maj. Bethel's the Major was not at home, but his son gave him permission to stay all night, and assigned him a room up stairs.

After this he missed some gold sleeve buttons, and again collared Birch, who drew a knife Bethel let him go to get his gun, and Birch ran like a quater horse.-. Bethel shot at him twice, but Birch escaped minus Yarborough's horse. . - POLITICAL. I Mayor Oakey Hall has challenged Hon.' Horace Greely to a public political.discus sititi. .

D. Home, exhib its a fine taste and high scholarly attain- "It has been my aim," says Lord- Adare, in writing of these seances of Mr. Home, to divest my accounts of all sensational ele ments ; and lor fear of exaggerating in any particular, I have simply recorded the bare tacts I witnessed. To put down on paper accurately what others, with myself, have seen, or to report even the substance nt what hi spoken in a trance, is extremely difficult it U well to mention that 1 have witnessed many persons make, at their first seance, every effort to account for the phe nomena by trickery and mechanical contri vance, and failing in that, to reduce them to the effects or some nnknown force. 1 nave invariably found them, provided the seance was successful, very soon obliged to admit that these phenomena cannot be accounted for except on the supposition that they are caused by an unseen but active and reason ing Intelligence. 1 have printed names in full, whenever obtaining leave to do so, knowing how little value is generally at tached to statements unsupported by the testimony of more than one person." liord Adare gives to the public, in tnis book, the names fifty persons as witnesses of these spiritual manifestations. These indi viduals are well known and responsible. Some belong to the aristocracy, some are scientists, some are eminent in the pursuits of literature, and others in the law, jihysics, and the military department We take pleasure in furnishing for our readers the gist of seme of the wonders seen at these seances, and recorded by Lord Adare. SEANCE NO. 1 SHADOWY FORMS INVI8I- i , , BLB ACCOBDEON PLAYERS. "During this sitting, in the presence of Dr. Gully, Mr. Earl, Mrs. Thayer, and others, the table began to vibrate with great rapid ity, and danced around the room in various directions. It was tilted up to an angle greater than forty-five degrees.. The sur face was smooth, polished mahogany, yet the candles, paper, and pencil did not move. Feeling cold currents of air pass across my face and hands, a chair standing against the wall, at a distance of perhaps, five yards. came suddenly away from the wall, and placed itself beside me at the table. The effect was startling. Mrs. Thayer saw a shadowy form standing between Home and myself: I was touched lightly upon the head. An accordeon was brought; Home took it, holding the lower part with the keys hang ing over the edge of the table, when it be gan a tune resembling a voluntary upon the organ ; the melody was perfect, and the ex pression beautiful While the accordeon was being played I looked at it two or three times under the table. All was permitted to do the same, demonstrating the fact that it was played without visible bands. bpibit bibds. Present, Mr. Jenckin, Mrs, Jenckin, Mrs. Heming, Mr. Russell, and others. The man ifestations commenced with the usual vibra tion of the floor and our chairs, and also the cold currents of air passing over the hands ot those present Curious sounds were heard something between the chirping of a bird and the whistling produced by bird's wings. Soon the spirit voice was heard distinctly. During the time of the rustling of the bird's wings and the spirit voices, Mr. Home en gaged in social conversation, showing that tne sounds were not produced by ventrilo quism. ;:, FLOATING TABLES. Present, Lady Galway, Lord Adare, Mrs. Scott KuaselL and others. - Avery large ta ble, seven feet long and five wide, vibrated, at first strongly, and then sprang forward violently, as though forced by a mighty. mysterious power. The table was lifted in j the air, and vibrated sufficiently strong, at a later hoar in the evening, to be felt in the next bouse. Music was heard, and other remarkable manifestations, demonstrating the reality of a future existence. A LORD LIFTED IB THE AIB BT UNSEEN HANDS. During this sitting the scene was exceed ingly harmonious. Mr. Home, entranced, spoke beautifully and was elongated, from his natural height, five feet ten inches, to six feet four. - Lord Dnnraven placed his hands on his feet, and they were fairly on the floor; others unbuttoned his coat and he was elon gated again ; the space between his waist coat and the waistband of his pantaloons being four or five inches. He also grew in breadth and size all over, but there was no way ot testing to what extent. Spirit-voices were heard, and spirit-forms were seen. - HORRIBLE GRAVEYARD INCANTATIONS. Lord Dunraven, Charles Wjnne, Home, and Lord Adare went to the Abliey, and, while standing near the altar, Home was en tranced, and by the expression of his face appeared to be in great agony. His bead and hands became luminous. An owl flew round the Old Abbey screeching. I attrib uted the noise at first to Home, but as he passed me he said in a most awful voice, "No, it is not me: you are mistaken." He kneeled upon the ground, waved his hands, and, appearing in great distress, said : "Do you see that tombstone with a light shining npon it! It would be better, a million times better, to lie there in the cold dark clay than to spend years upon years, every moment of which is an eternity, in wandering here. Oh, I am so weary so weary !" Soon he awoke from his trance in a nervous state. En tranced again we saw him approaching, and evidently raised from off the ground, for he floated by in front of us at a height which carried him over a broken wall, which was about two feet high. There could not be a better test of his being entirely off the ground, for, as he crossed the wall, he was quite horrizontal, and uniform in movement The distance that we saw him carried must have been at least ten or twelve yards. . THE GHOST OF AN ANCIENT MONK. When nome came out of the trance, he seemed excited, and remembered that pre vious to losing his consciousness he had been walking about with a man dressed like a friar in a brown gown a costume common to this order in the Catholic Church. The spirit the friar told Home he was unable to leave the earth. Some psychologic law seemed to hold him to the old scenes of his mortal life. Finally be was led back to the church, where he kneeled and prayed. Upon coming to nimseime told us tne spirit would De petter and nappier tor what had trans pired that night As we were about to leave. Home saw a ngure in the air, Charlie Wynne, and myself both saw the shadow move across the window. ' MR. HOME FLYING IN THE AIB, After a little quiet. Home was taken up in the air and carried out of one window, and brought into the window of another room. During the session there was the rushing sound of wind, the chirping of a mra neard, and luminous emanations around Home's head, which, at times, changed into the form of tongues or jets of ilaine. Then entranced again, he spoke in n unknown tongue for a time, and then the spirits said they had that day been discussing the sub ject ot the miracles at the day of Pentecost, and that tho spirits present, aided bv t higher intelligence, had produced the sound of the wind, of the bird descending of the unicnown tongues with the interpretations. and the tongues of fire, to show tha th same phenomenon could occur now- that transpired in the uncorrupted Christian ages' The remarkable phenomenon recorded in this book, of nearly 200 pages, issued only lor private circulation, are tnrillingly inter esting and convincing. We hope that Lord Dunraven, with the other titled gentlemen and ladies wno witnessed those spiritual manifestations, will soon see the necessity of throwing the volume into the book markets ot the world.
