K. Bryan, on behalf ot the Topsail Agricultu ral Club, introduced a series of resolutions recommending that the Legislature of the State be asked to pass a law for the encour agement of sheep husbandry by levying a tax on dogs. The plan contemplated in the resolutions is to collect the tax and hold it os a fund out f which compensation may bo made to the owners of sheep for all losses from thcdenrodiilionsof does. The balance of the fund, alter meeting such demands, to co into the educational fund. Mr. B. showed that by the contemplated law, $70,000 per annum might lie raised, and of this amount he estimated that SW.OOO would suffice to pay all the losses inflicted by dogs on sheep owners. The resolutions were adopted and Messrs. Bryan, Satchwell and Mcllhenny were ap pointed to memoralizc the General Assembly on this subject. We ark bappv to be able to mlonn oui readers, that vifi 'have put things in' train for perfecting a branch (if our (jusiness which we consider on important one, namely : reg ular notices of the' periodicals that are laid on our table,' and extended' notices of. such, books as are sent us from time i to time by different publishing tbiises." In. these . days of superabundant literature and high prices, it is very unportanMhattlie people should, be able to form some opinion of a periodi cal or a book beore spending their inoney. perhaps,' for a 'trashy- thing which will do .-harm instead bfgpoil, "' We livc.tljere-" fbremadeurrangemcuts'with an experienced reviewer , to ' fufnlsh.''')lhe 'Stimdurd 'with" notices nd txtrncts from the . periodicals wid boiiks'iif.,th(; day ';, and publishers' and 10oksellers -will find5 h to 'their interest-to keep us m1ppld with material for the work. j-:itiuuiCALS I nc litconmruaui rg-iner, DtTvletl tn tlii Farm, the Uartlen, and the.

We frankly acknowl edge that we open our literary notices with this periodical, for no other reason than because it U published aud edited .by North Carolina gentleuien.'in North Carolina. We believe that it is our duty to foster all Jitcr ary efforts that are made in the. State, at first, because, tliey are good but we'. do not believe in recommending a periodical to tho people of North Carolina simply because it is published in the tate, 'when the editors provo .themselves incompetent .uien. for tlie position- they kold, after a fair trial and full time to shovv their ability for thoir work, if they have any. The Reconstructed Farmer is now in its second year, and,' judging by the number before u-, will be worthy of the sup port of the people of the State. Like Mark Twain, we have no hesitation in saying "we don't know auylhing about agriculture." but then .we do know something about geography, the effect of latitude and longi tude 011 climate,' and the effect or climate on agriculture, and can see that what docs very well in those latitudes and longhud where" most of the agricultural periodicals are pub lished will do very ill. down her.c in 'mr benighted climate. Then too we believe, with the "Autocrat of the Breakfast TaWe,": that climate affects men's; minds as well as their bodies. Northern- farmers, always laugh at what they call li the sliiftlessuess " of Southern ones, but after ten years resi dence South arc very apt to fall" into' many Southern wu-s and Gnd that -though they would lie very-bad North, they are necessary evils South. From all wliioh we infer that what Southern farmers want is information suitable' to their latitude and longitude from minds who know their needs, advice from men who not only see " how drupk they are but also know how " thirsty they are-! But if wc are as blind as a one eyed po- tatoo 611 the subject of agriculture, and ig norant respecting the best way of rearing those delightful vegetables, hominy, macco roni and vermicelli, wc flatter ourselves that we do know something about editing a pc riodieai, and unhesitatingly say that to be good, it must be paying, in more senses than one, tor it must pay out, ami mis n cannot do unless its subscribers pay in. No peri odical can be a literary success very long that is not a pecuniary one : so we hoe all interested in reconstructing our State will give the Hecoiutructed Farmer a fair chance and begin by reading in the June numlicr '"How to Succeed in Farming."! . LittelVt Livina Aae. This is the best weekly pcriotlieal, in our opinion, that is published in the United States, neither trashy nor heavy, but both entertaining and instructive. Wc give it the most cordial welcome ol any of the uumlicr that daily jrect us. It is now, tesides its usual large amount of the best scientific, literary, his torical aii'l political matter, publishing two new and Very interesting serial stories, one by Mrs. Oliphant Hnd the other by Charles Lctcr. ' ; ' To new subscribers, remitting $3 for the year 1870, five numbers of 18C9, containing thebeginning of Mrs. Oliphant s and Charles Lever's serials, etc., are sent grata.

Littell & Gay, Boston, are the pub lishers. ' The Eclectic. This magainc- is among monthlies what the Living Age is among the weeklies.. . The June . number contains a beautifully executed eugraving ot Uenry Ward Bcecher, with a sketch of his life by the editor, W. H. Bidwell.- The eugraving will lie Valuable to- the admirers of Mr. Beecher. .Not being one of them, we notice only Ihe beauty of its execution. ', The sketch will bo interesting to many, but the article on Chatterton cannot fail to interest all lovers of literature.. It is a review of "Chatterton, a Biographical Study," by Daniel Wilson, LI- D. ' Putnam. The June number ot this pe riodical has not reached us yet but the May number did,' and contains -an article on "Political Degeneracy its Cause and Rem; edy," which s alone worth the price ot the number; and it closes witlj such a clear MM forcible definition of . what is practically The State, that wc regret opr limits will not allow us to copy they whole of it, and, as a portion w'otihl uot do justice to thesul)- ject wc refer our readers to it, particularly tho following scrap : "The main thing it (the State) has to do is to defend and secure every man from every other man, that the noble faculties with which God has endowed us till may hna their fullest, freest, and most - harmonious development." 1 Book Notices. From Claxton, Rcmscrd & Ilaffelfinger, Philadelphia, we have two volumes of poems "The Poetical Works of David Bates," edited by his son, Stockton Bates, and ''Flowers and Fossils," by John 'I' K. Staymau,, Professor of Ancient Lan- guages 'and,Clas.sical Literature in Dicker son College. . The.firsf is: handsomely prin ted on tinted paper, and will compare well with any of the publications of Osgood & Fields, Roberts Brothers, or other first class publishing houses. The poems are remark able for the purity of' their sentiment t and dictiou, and some of them are' replete with manly ' thought. "Speak Gently "Und "Childhood1' have .attained considerable rcputEtion already, but are- not equal as- poems, in our opinion, to "The . voyage .01 Life." "Flowers and. Fossils" is . pot so well gotten up, but 'is quite good criougli for its contents, which' are not equal to Bates' .poems. This house, is a branch of Lippincott, Grant &' Co. They have been long in the trade, though not tmder their present name as a firm. They have pub lished several books by Southern authors, and arc said to be more liberal in their terms' to new beginners' than tho older firms. We mention tlieir names in reply to the many enquiries wo have lately had on the subject of publishers from those anxious to launch their literary ventures.. . From the Harpers we- have a cheap edi tion of "Tom Brown's School days." a capi tal book not only for boys, but for young men, and an interesting one for the elders. We are glad to see it in a cheap dress. Appleton gives 'tis "Lothair," .for which we are grateful, and will give an extended notice later. ' . Personal. We aro glad to set on our streets Mr. J. C. Courtney, ' Superintendent; of the Southern Express Company. Wo have known Mr. C. for years, and congratu late the Company on having such an effi- . cient officer. ' UBnANDS AND BRdTHBBS.The ' cxcellcncjLf any ui ven circle of society is guaged the sacredness with which female virtue irguarded.' There can; be.no moral worth, no high sense of honor, and, indeed, no proper self-respect in that family or community1 in which the chastity of woman is not above suspicion. It is therefore, one of the most responsible duties of the parent and the ruler to culti vate in yonfll, of Imth sexes, a holy regard for purity In woman, and to prevent by every means in their power all familiarity' with scenes or characters which, would; ilupair taci delicacy and force 'of 'this sentiment The presence 6f vice, the mere knowledge cuts xistcnce, is corrnpuBg, mucu .more fhe unblushing and ostentntious display ol ilftgrcdation-and infamy lo which it leads Its victims. : Podr human 'nature is so' frail that all nbervation and experience proves that there is a world of truth in the hack ncyed line of Pope: - ; " Vice is a monster of siicli hideons mciu, - That to be hated needs but to be seen, . But seen too ott, familiar with IU face, ; iWe first rndare, then pity, then embrace." .' .Now Jet ns apply these well known prin ciples to this goodly city of Raleigh. Wo have an unprecedented, number of " denii mondu " in -our midst, nobody knows how many, but it is certain their name is legion. They live in fine houses their boudotri qre adorned with costly furniture and decked with flowers their persons ore arrayed in splendid apparel and sparkle with precious gems birds of sweetest melody regale them by day, and mirth 'and wine and dancing "close the glowing hours of night Bediz ened with paint and bedecked with brilliant ornaments, with bead erect and lewd eye ' piercing in all directions, they walk the strdetB and shove our wives and daughters from the sidewalks, displaying themselves in 'the gayest equipages of the city.-,- .. -: Nay, more ; they may be sure at times ol .stepping their carriages in our very streets, to make assignations and licentiousness. We have even been told by one of our city pas tors, that he had been insulted by oue of these disgraces of our town himself. The effect of such exhibitions must be intensely corrupting upon all classes of society, es pecially the young, and many a poor girl 'seeing the elegant dressing, the high living, And abundance ot money these women have, is tempted to give up on honest hord work ing life, and take to the criuiesof these mis erable and infamous creatures. ' The public sense ot the insulted com munity ought to be goaded by the indigna tion oi every virtuous woman in the City till the authorities enforce the law against such nuisances and drive them out of the place ,.' SABUAtB-BKEAKiMG. The bald-headed sinner, who edits the local column ol the Sentinel, refers to the business arrangements of this office, in regard to our Monday morn ing's issue, and characterizes us as a Sab bath breaker, &c. We have, to say to this man, (who has fished for a notice at our hands, and now that he has it) that he has broken the Sabbath from his infancy to his manhood, and failed to observe his Sundays, fbrVhen lie worked with us, in 1865 or 18C0, he labored on Sunday, and told a smutty anecdote on Monday. . On Tuesday he held prayers and repented. On Wed nesday, he got somebody to stand his secu rity. On Thursday' he went a fishing or attended a meeting of the fire company. On Friday, be obtained a few cabbage from some poor huckster for a puff; and on Sat urday, (which is the Sabbath,), he worked all day, as a blind, and drew the wages of his sius. So much, therefore, for this man, who sits in the amen corner, and casts the irst stone at a printer who knows his busi ness and attends to it Takixo the Census. The persons up- pointed by Col. Carrow, the United States Marshall for North Carotin, will soon begin their task of taking the ninth census. In some cases the work will be simple and easy enough ; in others it will be difficult and zen. will kits tho required information read ily and truthfully. The ignorant and surlv citizen will lie less communicative, and the enumerator will get what he wants through a more or less ingenious cross-cxamin ation. Many people arc inclined to re gard with suspicion the stranger seek ing private . and domestic facts. They seem to entertain vague apprehensions of mysterious danger to their person or property.- During the war there was some reason for -this distrust The peaceful canvassers for directories were often rudely received by those who regarded them as agents of the government in the business of a military draft The census-takers will not encounter this difficulty, but they may be mistaken for emissaries of the revenue department intent on the imposition of some new tax. Even when their real character is understood, there will be a frequent hesitancy in putting them in possession of the desired statistics. The reluctance results from a quite natural und proper repugnance to the publication of private affaire. Sensitive persons will, there fore, be relieved in knowing that the census is entirely knpersonaL. Family secrets will be safe id a record that concerns itselt not with names but only with figures. The woman who confesses that she is a maiden of forty-five, or the man whose wife does not preside over his own household, may be assured that bis identity will not be disclosed in the Mar shal's tables. Then 'let the census-taker have cheerful welcome and prompt assis tance in his work. A circular bos just been issued from the Department of the Interior calling the at tention of marshals, and assistant marshals especially, to - the rules whieh ore intended to govern the enumeration ol youth absent from their homes for. purposes ot education. Only those members of a school or. college are to be reported in the town where the institution was situated who belonged to 'families there resident. The Contractors for the Stone Work of the Penitentiary, says the Greensboro' Republican, ore earnestly ut work. They have begun to blast 'rock, and tlie quarry on the' ground will afford the very best material. The work on the cells will shortly be com menced. The cell blocks will be erected first, so that the prisoners can be confined in them, and. the Commissioners have an as surance that, they will be- completed by one year from tho first ot July, so that 500 con victs can be .imprisoned -securely in them, This' is the State's great work, and will be an honor to her. A switch is being made on' the North-Carolina Railroad, and a branch road very short constructed into the prison yard. i - ; State Thoow. We learn that CoL Wm. J. Clarke, of Ncwberne, has been appointed Colonel of the 1st Regiment of North-Car - olino troops, to lie raised immediately and put on duty. . , Cot Clarke is a gallant and efficient sol dier a gentleman of tried courage, ability and capacity. He is not only versed in military affairs, but understands the civil law, and is the man for the occasion. Under his control, the militia will be effectually organized, and the assassins, who have dis graced the name of our State, meet with a just reward for their crimes. . The Colonel has accepted this commission in the interests of peace, law and order. All good men will support him and give him encouragement. The government of this State must and shall be preserved. A Word to Paheitts, ' 'BSTHotno Bugu fJest'ptttratat6 f j of the werki would almost fail to create as . impression so profound aa the suddoride- ccaae of Charles ' Dickens . has occasioned.

It will be an exposition of the productions of I manufacturers, mechanics, artists, inventors, and others, and is planned upon so large and thorough a scale that it can hardly fail to prove successful.. An immense building will b: erected, into which steam power will be introduced, so that machinery of all kinds may be seen in actual operation. The products of the soil and of mines will also be exhibited, and n endeavor will be made to have ladies contribute their handiwork. Arrangements will be effected with the rail way and steamboat lines by which articles and exhibitors con be conveyed to Cin cinnati at cheap rates. The premiums will consist of gold and' silver medals and di plomas. N. C.' State Fair. The last meeting of the Stste Agricultural Society, during the week of :the Foir, was rendered more inter esting and profitable, by the inauguration of the custom of having essays read upon different subjects relating to the material in terest of the State. We are pleased to learn that, in accordance with resolutions of the Society, President Battle will select gentle men of skill and experience to prepare pa pers on important subjects, to be read during the week of the next Fair. Mr. Wm. F. Shultz, of Salem, N. C, we learn has already consented to prepare an essay on Bees and HoKEY-MAKiNO and Copt Thigpcn.'of the Reconstructed Farmer, will read a paper on Fences For Farms, in which he will dis cuss the questions -. whether the exposure and trouble of keeping them up would justify their being abolished. These are admirable 'selections, and valu able hutructirtn will be tlie result of their labors. Mr. Shultz has given the history of bees aud tlieir management a great deal of and is oeriuctlv fnmilinr with tlm anli and successful planters of Edgecombe. The Washington Republican says that a gentleman who has just arrived in Wash ington from Paris brings with him some conies of a remarkable pamphlet, printed for private circulation in the French metrop olis. The subject is thu prolmlile and prox imate fate of Spain ; aud the pamphlet is believed to foreshadow the views and policy of Louis Napoleon in regard to that country. It assumes that Spain is now going through a process oi rapid political disintegration ; and it chalks out the dismemberment of that ancient country and' its partition between France, Portugal and England. Of course France is to have the lion's share of the spoil, while a small but convenient region of the wine district of the south, including the city of Cadiz, is to lie allotted to Great Britain. - " " ' How to Win Success. Wc wish every boy and young man who reads our paper to grow up a useful, intelligent and successful member of the great ' society of mankind. Every boy, no matter how poor and humble he may be, can, by industry in seeking intel ligence, surely succeed in life, for there is a demand for intelligent labor throughout the length and breadth of this great nation.

Citt and Suburban Improvements. In prospecting over our city and its suburbs a few days ago, our attention was called to the many improvements that have lately been completed and others that are still in course of construction... On our return home we came down Newborn street; the first place that attracted our attention was the "Old Cotton Place,' now owned by Mr. Kingsland, he. has. certainly displayed 1 great deal of taste, not only in the improve ments 'of .the buildings, tut also in the adornment of, the grounds surrounding them, - Next we come to that lovely place owned by Dr. Meneinger, our Secretary of State. , He has certainly raised that place from the dead, "but it is not surprising, for with the quick, perception and natural talents of the Doctor on the beauties of architecture, its surroundings are', also be coming rerj attntctirc ' , . ; .

EditoH, Post: In looking ovi it Post of yesterday I find a good many e n-rs, ver bal and otherwise, in the report 1 pro ceedings ot the late Congressioni nven tion at this place. Being conl .11 that these errorm are inadvertent bot your part and that of the reporter, ! u the liberty ot forwarding for publicati .. .1 copy of the resolutions as first offered 1 n-yselt. The resolutions originally were .-Acnin number, and were so offered to th- Conven tion and afterwards submitted to l.e Com mittee, of which I had the honor to be chair man. In committee the 7th resolution was stricken oat, and a portion of the lost reso lution, as published by yon, inserted in its place. In the last resolution, before the committee and before the Convention, there wa not one word Inserted in reference to Governor Holden. It is the production of Mr. Lcarv, offered as substitute to my 7th, and whs so adopted by the Convention. The resolution endorsing Gov. Holden was the 3d in the series, ioliowing immedi ately after the resolution endorsing the President, and was amended by the major ity of the committee so as to strike out the latter clause. The majority report of the committee cm bracing these amendments was adopted by the Convention after that body had rejected the minnritv report, and here let me call at tention to the fact' that it was the notion of the Convention in relation to these reports that led to tlie withdrawal of the minority at a later period of the proceedings. The minority, which consisted of tho Robeson delegation entire, and Messrs. Gal loway and Mabson; of Ntw Hanover, found that grave charges were beingmrged against Col Dockcry, which they wished to see re moved either by his own explanations or those of his friends before they were called to vote for him in Convention. Col. Docker)', as the Congressional Glol shows, did not vote lor the 15th Amend mcut on its final passage. He was and is charged with being in opposition to Gov. Holdcn's administra tion, lie is cnargcu wun endorsing mc address of the Conservative members ot the Legislature. He is charged with de nouncing Senator Pool's speech on the Georgia question, and with recommending for appointment to office other than mem bers of the Republican party. Tho mi nority, before they committed themselves, therefore, to Col. DockeryV nomination, wanted to get his explanation as to the fal sity of the above charges ; but the majority, by the course which they saw proper to pursue in regard to the above resolutions, and by compelling us to go into a nomina tion before the resolutions, even as amended, were submitted for acceptance or rejection to Col. Dockery, rendered unavoidable our withdrawal. When I withdrew irom the Convention, followed by Messrs. Galloway and Mabson, Robeson county did not any more participate in the proceedings, so that in reality there were six delegates who withdrew. The Post publishes that Col. Dockery re ceived 20 votes on the nomination. The public will have a difficulty in appreciating this fact when it is known that the twelve counties which constitute this district have only 16 votes in all to cast for a Congress man, and that li counties, composing Robe son with two votes, and Messrs. Galloway and Mabson having at their disposal one third of the vote of New Hanover, refused to participate in the nomination. It is well however that the public should understand that the minority are personally, os much, if not more, attached to O. II. ' Dockery than even those whom he has made his peculiar followers and supporters by reason of loaves and fishes. We do want to support Col. Dockery if he will allow us to do so as Republicans. But we cannot sup port him if it is a condition precedent that we throw overboard Gov. Holden and Sena tors Pool and Abbott and take to our fra ternal embrace uncircumcised conservatives, with whom our friend, the Col., has man aged to strike up a desperate flirtation on the eve of the election. Of course the editor of the Wilmington Journal cannot be inclu ded among the uncircumcised Conservatives and is not therefore alluded to here. James Sinclair, Ch'm'n Com. on Resolutions. resolutions. Whereas the exigencies of the times threaten great danger to out Republican in stitutions by the existence of an organized band ot murdurcrs and assassins, who cither elude or defy the civil law of the State, and commit tne most cruel and hom'ile out rages upon all citizens who they suspect of supporting the reconstruction measures of Congress, and the present order of things as established by and through the aforesaid reconstruction measures demand on this occasion a public avowal of our principles ; therefore Be it resolved by tlie Republicans of the Third Congressional District in Convention assembled. That we approve and heartily endorse the recent legislative action of Con gress in reference to carrying out in good faith the provisions of the 15th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as a step in the right direction, for the protec tion ot our people irom outrage and mur der at the hands of a certain political or ganization.

Pool and Abbott on the Georgia question, a wise and statesmanlike action, entitling them to the confidence and support of every Republican in the State, and that we iicreuy endorse the sentiments contained in the speeches of both our Senators on the said Georgia question.

That inasmuch as the exigencies of the times have rendered cardinal the prin ciples embodied in the foregoing resolu tions, we will not ana cannot support tne nomination for Congress of any candidate who will not approve and support the same.
