Hill, Outside Sentinel. W. J. Edwards, Standard Bearer. There will be an installation of officers at their hall next Tuesday night. " Crueltv to Animals. There certainly ought to be a law in this city, in fact throughout the entire State, to picveut the cruel treatment of animals. During the past few days we have witnessed several inci dents of the most ontrageons maltreatment of these poor things that have no tongues to speak for themselves. On one occasion we saw a big, overgrown fellow beating a lean, lank horse most unmercifully over the head ln.t-au.se he could not pull through a mnddy place a load of timber nearly heavy enough for three horses. At another time we observed a man goading on bis oxen with a sharp nail fastened in the end of a stick. Yesterday we noticed a boy of about seventeen years of age abusing a horse with out any apparent motive, more than to hurt the beast First be would beat him over the cars and nose with a heavy stick, ihen kick his lean ribs with all force. Such things arc horrible to witness, and ought not to be allowed. We will have more to say on this subject hereafter. The Rocky Mount Cock Figiit. A few days ago we noticed the advertisement of a chicken fight to come off at Rocky Mount, in Edgecome county. The fight commenced on the 23d and lasted until the evening of the 25th. We have been able to gather the fullowing particulars : The main was agreed upon some weeks ago between Sip Taylor, of Nash, and Josh Bullock, of Edgecombe. Fourteen chickens were matched on each side. These consti tuted the main. Sip Taylor was backed by Jim Falkncr, of Halifax, and Mr. Colcy, the richest man in Wayne county, showing twenty-five cocks as fine as any in the world. Josh Bullock was backed by Capt. Dave Williams, Jesse Bullock and Hon. A. H. Arriiigton. Jim Falkncr heeled and pitted for Tay lor. (Falkner is regarded as one of the best cockers in the United States.) Mr. Tharrington, from Franklin, performed simi lar services for Bullock. As most of the chickens were of the old " Nick Arrington stocky there was no dis crimination in betting with regard to coun ties. On Wednesday the first fight of the main came off, resulting in a victory for Taylor, but both fowls behaved so beautifully that this could not be taken as a test or criterion of ultimate success. Betting on single cocks by outsiders was high and excited, especial ly when Bullock whipped the second fight in the main. Sporting men from Richmond and differ ent points were present, lending excitement and zest to the affair. Large sums ol money were staked on the main, each better san guine of success for his favorite. On Thursday Taylor achieved a triumph, whipping five fights of the six fought during the day. On Friday I lie Taylor party could not ob tain bets except at heavy odds, and Taylor easily whipped the main, gaining five out of six fights in the morning. There being odd cocks left, Mr. Arrington proposed to take the balance of the fights on his own responsibility. Just here the cause of the "milk in the cocoauut" was discovered. Bullock had converted an old blacksmith shop into a coop, and had injudiciously thrown cinders into the coop and had kept hi fowls standing on straw, the weather be ing excessively hot; and thereby the birds were enfeebled so as not to be able to deliver good blows. Mr. Arrington caused the straw, &c , to be removal and substituted sand and ico-water, and in the evening won a triumph by winning four out of five fights and regaining from the Taylor party all the moqcy on the main. . There never was a more magnificent allow ing of cock) in North Carolina. United States Circuit Court June 29th. His Honor Judge Brooks presiding. United States vs. S. A. Lowring, charged with conspiracy to extort money from to bacco manufacturers and distillers. Defen dant called and failed to appear. United States vs. Daniel Hicks, charged with illicit distilling Defendant called and failed to appear. United States vs. Henry P. Carroll and A. J. Jones, post-office case, verdict in favor of the plaintiff. United States vs. N. M. Long and Wm. J, Hawkins. This case was compromised by the defendants paying costs. W. F. Riddick, the very popular assistant clerk of this Court who has been suffering for sometime from sickness, is able to be again at bis post. Wednesday, June 29, 1870. Court met pursuant to adjournment His Honor, Judge Brooks, presiding. The Equity docket was taken op, and sev eral important cases were taken tip, bnt of a chaiack:r that would not interest the public. Dossey Battle and Jno. F. Hoke were ad mitted to practice in this court. The court then adjourned to meet again on the 4th Monday in August next, in this city, when several important cases upon the Equity Docket will be heard, which stood for trial at this term, but have been post poned till then, owii.g to the great length of the term. His Honor, Judge Brooks, and the bar, feel that the great press of bus incss just gone through witli entitles them to a respite. Many important cases have been tried, and the learned debates of counsel have witnessed large and intelligent audiences. It is proper to state that no law cases will be taken up at the special term.' Mr. N. J. Riddick, the Clerk of the Court, has been in attendance during the entire session. He is a gentleman well qualified for the performance of the difficult duties im posed upon him by virtue of his office, and has done so to the entire satisfaction of the bench and bar. He has been greatly assist ed, as we learn, by Mr. Junius Ferrell, the well known former deputy clerk of this county, and also by Mr. Ed. Badger. Thus closes this court of the United States for this District This has become one of our great courts, and calls together the tal ent of North Carolina from the mountains to the seaboard. We venture to say that the legal learning and forcnic debate displayed at this court will compare favorably with aqy in the Union, and this is verified by many strangers in attendance from other States. It is acknowledged by all that his Honor, Judge Brooks, who presided, has no superior for administering justice, being possessed of a pure heart and sound mind. He has clustered around him a host of friends since he has been on the bench, and his pa tience and fairness is admired both by the successful and defeated. Col. S. T. Carrow, the U. S. Marshal, has been closely in attendance, and with charity and impartiality for all has discharged his onerous duties creditable to himself and his numerous friends, aided by his pleasant and competent assistant, Major Footc, have suc ceeded in pleasing all.

As appropriate to the " all piping hot" season now at hand, and local items being as scarce as hens' teeth, we, with the aid of Saxc, vent our feelings in rhyme: Heaven help us all In these terrific days ! The burning sun upon the earth is pelting . With his dlrectest, fiercest, hottest rays, And every thing is melting ! Fat men, infatuate, Ian the stagnant air, In rash essay to cool their inward glowing, While with each stroke, in dolorous despair, They feel the fever growing I The lean and lathy find a (ate as bard, For, : lla-dry, they barn like any tinder Beneath tbe solar blaze, till withered, charred And crisped away to cinder ! E'en Stoics now are in tbe melting mood, And vestal cheeks are most unseemly florid ; The very zone that girts tbe lrigid prude Is now intensely torrid ! The dogs lie lolling in tbe deepest shade ; The pigs are all a-wallow in the gutters. And not a household creature cat or maid, Bnt querulously mutters I ' "Tis dreadful, dreadful hot!' exclaims each one Unto bis sweating, sweltering, roasting neighbor, Then mops bis brow, and sighs, as he bad done .A quite herculean labor! And friends who pass each other In tbe town, Say no good morrows wten tbey come to gether. But only mutter, with a dismal frown, ' What horrid, horrid weather!' "Live and Learn." We have noticed the following paragraph in several papers, and copy it for our readers. We hope some one of our friends will make the experiment and report to us the result, as such would be an item of interest : " A singular method of making butter has recently come into rather extensive use in France, based upon the fact that cream is changed into butter by being simply buried in the earth. The theory of this result is not very intelligible, though the fact is stated beyond question; and in Normandy and other parts of France butter is prepared on a large scale in this way. The process con sists in placing the cream in a linen bag of moderate thickness, which is then carefully closed ; then burying the bag about a foot ami a half deep in the earth, and allowing it to remain from twenty-four to twenty-five hours. At the expiration of that period the crc.-.m is found to have become hard, and it is then broken up by means of a wooden beater into small pieces, aud sufficient water poured into it to wash out the butter milk. To prevent any mixture of earth, it is ad visable to enclose the bag m a second one of larger size and coarser quality. This method of making butter saves a good deal of labor and separates the butter more perfectly than the ordinary process; and it is said that butter thus prepared is of a more excellent quality." How to Force Radishes. We have just discovered thut radishes may be forced to grow in a very short time, and for the benefit of our frieods we give the receipt gratis : Let some good radish seed soak in water for fifty four hours, then put them in a bag exposed to the sun. In the course of the day germination will commence. The seed must theu be sowed in a well-manured hot bed, and watered from time to time with lukewarm water. By this treatment the radishes will, in a very short time, acquire a sufficient bulk, ami be good to cat. It it be required to get good radishes in winter, dur ing the severe cold, an old cask should lc sawn in two, and one-half of it filled with good earth. The radish seed, beginning to shoot before, must then be sowed in, the other half of the barrel put on the top of the full one, and the whole apparatus carried down into the cellar. For waterin-.', luke warm water should be used as before. In the course of five of six days the radishes will be fit to cat. Tub New Berne Timet of the 29th ult says : "The following is the Washington delegation accompanying the remains of the Hon. David Heaton : Hon. A. H. Jones, of North Carolina, Chairman ; Hon. S. H. Boyd, Missouri; Hon. 8. Mayhew, New York ; J. W. Le Barnes, Assistant Sergeant at Arms, House of Representatives ; Col. Eastman and Messrs. Ford and Mabson, of ficers of the House of Representatives. In addition to the above delegation, Mr. Marr, of Harvey & Marr, Undertakers, Capt Rosecranz, David Kellelt, and Mr. Price also accompanied the remains." Look Out ! We see by our exchanges that mad-dogs have been killed in various parts of the State. Recently one of these victims of hydrophobia sprang through a window into a room where some ladies were sitting, in Winston, Forsythe county, and by a mere accident the enraged animal was pre vented from biting any one. From other States we have occasional news of the most dreadful pains, ravings and deaths resulting from the bites or attacks of ud dog. la almost every city we could name, the " fathers " compel the mazaleuient of dogs at this time of tbe year. Why is not this caution against danger used in Raleigh ? " An ounce of preventive is worth a pound of cure." Yesterday morning we had the pleasure of riding a few miles into the country, with a friend. Stopping at the house of a farmer, we observed that he bad been cutting hay. Speaking on tbe subject of hay-making, our host advanced several ideas which we thought might be of some interest or advan tage to some of our readers, so we relate, as nearly as possible, his remarks ' on the sub ject Said he: "My observation has con vinced me that sojlar as weather is concern ed, the most favorable time for making hay is the last ten days in June and the first ten in July. As a general thing, also, the grass cut during this period is worth more than most of that cut later. The ev idencc, too, is clear that grass cut while in the bloom and cured without much exposure to the Bun, is very much more valuable than that cut later, and exposed a part of two or three days to sun aud air. Gruss cut early and made mostly in tbe cock, retains more fully the grow qualities, and' this all stock like better than other food." Yesterday morning we met at least a dozen persons who declared that they were victims to fever, and were bound to die be fore night. In the' evening we encountered the same individuals, and each one affirmed that he could live a thousand years! Why? Because they bad visited Bradley & Chris, toplien' Arctic Soda Fountain. - Tub New Bbhne .Timu of the 28th says that "the committee appointed to make ar rangements for the reception of the remains of the Hon. David Heaton, letton a special train last ninht at 8 o'clock for GoldsbW, where they will meet the Congressional Com mittee who have' the remains in charge, and bring them to New Berne this morning. The funeral will tako place from the Presbyterian Church at 5 o'clock to day. The remains will be interred in tho Na tional Cemetery." ' Tns Roanoke Hea$ urges the cultivation of Snmach. Mr. T. N. White, ol Weldon, advertises for one million pounds. The Newt says " within the last year or two the State of Virginia bas realized several mil lions of dollars from the leaves of the Sumach, something entirely new with her as a commercial article." This bush grows abundantly all over this State, and wo concur with our neighbor in hoping that proper attention will be directed to it. The Clkiik of ttte City Boakd has just caused to be posted the following words of caution to the citizens of this place: The attention of property owners is called to the following provisions of section 4, chapter 8, City Ordinances : Sec. i. No privy shall be permitted to stand so near any . public street as to be offensive to passengers, (they shall be at least ten feet from the street,) on pain of the owner or occupier ot such property forfeit ing ten dollars ; and if continued after a conviction has taken place, five dollars for every day it shall remain. All privies to be effectually cleansed once every month ; and within tu'e first six days of May.-June, July, August and September, annually, in order to prevent them from becoming offensive, occapiers shall throw into them a sufficient quantity of lime or ashes, on pain of for feiting for neglect five dollars. Property owners and occupiers of prop erty are required to keep their premises clean under penalty of law. The Statue of Washington, in the cap itol square, has been well burnished, and the railing enclosing the statue handsomely re-bronzed.

Collin. Description of an Ancient Battle in Scotland. At once there rose so wild a yell Within that dark and narrcw dell. As all tbe fiends lrom heaven that fell, . Had pealca tbe banner-cry of hell I Forth lrom tbe pass, in tumult driven, Like chiit before tbe wind of heaven, The archery appear ; For life ! for lite ! their flight tbey ply . And shriek, and shout, and battle-cry. And plaids and bonnets waving high, , And broadswords flashing to tbe sky. Are maddening in their rear. Onward they drive in dreadful race, Pursuers and pursued ; Before that tide ol flight and chase How shaU it keep its rooted place. The spearsman's twilight wood 1 " Down, down'" cried Mar, "Your lances down ! Bear back both friend and foe !" Like reeds before the tempest's frown. That serried grove of lances brown At once lay leveled low ; And closely shouldering side t7 side Tbe bristling ranks tho onset bide. " We'll quell tho savage mountaineer, As their hunters cow tbe game ! Tbey come as licet as forest deer, We'll drive them back as tame." Bearing before tkein in their course, Tbe relics of the archer lorce. Like waves with crest of sparkling foam, Right onward did Clan Alpine come. Above tbe tide each broadsword bright Was brandishing liko beam ol light, Each targe was dark below ; And with tbe ocean's mighty swing, When heaving to tbe tempest's wing. Tbey burled him on the foe. 1 heard tbe lance's fhivering crash. As when the whirlwind rends the ash ; 1 heard tbe broadsword's deadly clang, As if a hundred anvils rang; But Moray wheeled his rearward rank Of horsemen on Clan Alpine's flank " My banner men advance 1 I sec," he cried, ' their colnmn shake, Upon them with the lance." The horsemen dashed among the rout, As deer break through tbe broom ; Their Bteeds arc stout, their swords are out, They soon make lightsome room. Clan Alpine's best are backward borne Where, wbcro was Rhodcric then One blast upon his bugle-horn V"ere worth a thousand men. And refluent through the pass of fear- The battle's tide was poured ; Vanished the Saxon's struggling spear, Vanished the mountain sword, As Brac-klinn's chasm, so black and steep. Receives her roaring linn, As the dark caverns of the deep Suck tbe wild whirlpool in, So did the deep and darksome pass Devour the battle's mingled mass ; None lingered now upon the plain, Save those who ne'or shall fight again. Scott. A Card from Captain J, J. Davis. To the Editor of the Standard: Sib : In your issue of the 27th June inst., you say : " We made the distinct charge against Captain Davis,- that after he was paroled he endeavored to raise a company and again enter the Confederate service, and that too in violation of his oath. What has be said ?" I answer, I have said this state ment was fulse. In February, 1805, I wag paroled "not to take up arms against tho government oi tne united States until ex changed." Tho charge that I endeavored to raise a company and again enter the Con federate service while under this parole, is untrue. The body of prisoners with whom I was paroled, before landing at Richmond, re solved that as soon as exebauged, they would return to their respective commands; My company was already in- the service ; and it was my purpose -to rejoin it as soon as exchanged this purpose was never con cealed. Upon my return home, many ques tions were asked by kind friends relative to my prison life; and, at their request, I made a speech in Louisburg, iu which I gave a narrative of my experience and observations while iu prison. This was no violation of my parole; and no truthful man can be found who will say that I proposed to raise a com pany or to enter the service before exchanged, or anything like it Though opposed to secession, yet after the deadly conflict be gan, I joined my kindred and entered the Confederate service in good faith, and not tofor tbe purpose of embarrassing it;" and my anxiety to return to my company, as soon as exchanged, was well known to my friends. The statement that I violated my parol, by whomsoever made, is false, You also say : "Sir, you did more. Ton threatened your peers and equ ils with 9 and 30 lashes. We heard yon say it. We know that you did do it." 1 answer to this ; You heard no suck thing. I did no such thing. There was an abortive attempt in 1865, by President Johnson and Governor Ilolden, to reconstruct this State. The Leg islature of 1805 and 'C6 (over which Judge Settle presided in the Senate, and Hon. 8. F. Phillips in the Commons, and which, in your parlance, was a loyal Legislature) passed an act punishing, by whipping, pil lory and imprisonment, those who might attempt to overthrow the State government. I did not vote for this law did not approve of it ; but among the first to violate its pro visions were those who favored it, and some who voted for it I made a speech, which is reported in full in the Raleigh Sentinel, ot Dec. 19th, 1800, in whicn I alluded to this law, and added 'bat those who enacted laws onght to obey them or 6ub'uiit to their penalties-. This is the only speech which I made upon the subject, and if you will pub lish it, your readers will sac how much foundation there is for your charge. As you seem good at daring, I dare you to publish this speech of minei end let your readers see tte truta. As to your opinions and your estimate oi me I care nothing. I shall not learn lessons of honor from yon, and it was my purpose not to be diverted from the issues now be fore tho people by anything personal ; but as you have made distinct charges, I have deemed it not improper to answer them, V lest some one, whose good opinion I might regard, should possibly suspect from my si- . ' lence, under the circumstances, that you bad ' told the truth. Jos. J. Davis. ! Louisburg, June 28, 1870. i To Guard Against Sunstroke. One who knows says it . behooves every one to take unusual precautions against sunstroke, and, first of all, avoid the use of stunulatinr liquors. It is mistake to suppo that a vdrink' now and then thropgh the day will help the system to bear np against the ener yating influence of the heat A large portion of the cases of sunstroke occur among those of irregular habits. Avoid alw ihe excessive nse of iced drinks when nrer-h-at-ted. The temporary refreshment they afford nevertheless shocks the ytem and rend one particularly susceptible to sunstroke. It is a prolific source also of diarrhra, cholera morbus and the like. If neccwarily exposed to the direct rays of tbe sun, wear a wet hankerchief or wet sponge in tho crown of tbe hat Laborers are especially recommended to take this very simple precaution, which has saved thousand from sudden death. Bear in mind that sunstroke, when not fatal, lcava the brain in a very sen sitive state and years after renders the victive more liable to a recurrence. "A stitch in time saved nine."
