The county stock in the three Roads will amount to $360,000. . We learn from the Wilmington Star that the mission man referred to in the article which we clipped from that paper, has been found. He was severely wounded by the robbers, and crawled into a creek to wash the blood from his wounds. The wounded man is named Stephen Davis. Mr. McLean, who was also wounded is doing well. , The desperadoes have been surrounded in Long Swamp. We hope the whole gang win be captured and every mother's son of them dealt with as justice may direct. ' ' Sheriffalty of Johnston. Mr. P.: Massey writes us from Smithfield, Oct 4th, that the facts as represented to us witb re gard to the Sheriffalty of Johnston County, are not true. It appears from the letter of Mr. Massey, that Mr. Hill failed to give bond, his sure ties only justifying for four thousand dollar. Mr. Cullom has not collected any tax cx cept from merchants, which he is advised he has a right to collect ; Mr. C. would have given bond and taken the tax lists but the Commissioners had appointed a tax col lector. We make this statement in justice to all . nartiea. ; We shall be clad at all times to make corrections where the facts are not .represented to us as they are. Improvements at N. C. Institution for the Deaf and Dtjmb and the Blind. In company with several gentlemen we were invited to visit tbe Institution X.ir, ihe Deaf and Dumli and the Blind few days ago to witness a trial of the new steam fieatiuj ap paratus, recently introduced, and to 'inspect the other improvements about the premises- At the last session of the Legislature a bill was passed making an appropriation of six thousand dollars "for the purpose of obtaining a steam heating apparatus and for the completion of a more thorough sys tem of drainage by well conducted sewers, and to provide against fire." ." The Board appointed, a '.committee con sisting of Hon. S. S. Ashiey, President, and Mr. Palmer, to visit and inspect a number of public buildings and institutions and recom-: mend the best system of heating and ven tillation. They recommended the system known as "Gold's Improved Patent of Steam and Water Heating," by indirect ra diation. ' After receiving several proposals the Board finally entered into -a contract with Messrs. Wm. E. Wood & Co., of Baltimore, to exe cute the work. They had already done a large amount of similar work in Baltimore, Lexington, Va., and other points and were highly recommended to the Board. The ; work was commenced about the middle ol August and has just been com pleted and accepted by the Board. 'The whole machinery' and apparatus worked well and answers admirably the purpose for which it was designed. ' ' ;;?r' We are indebted to the Principal for the following description of the machinery, &o, introduced : The heat is generated hyjyupe cast iron sectional boilers two . in tfie, cel lars of the main building and one under the chapel. From these boilers the eam ii cwivejcu mruuguout ui inmaing uy means of cast iron pipes and 'flues.' ' The boilers are low pressure and regulate themselves so as to stop the draught .at a pressure of two pounds or steam. The steam when con densed is returned to the boilers by means of pipes, so but little water is used. The ventilation is by registers placed in the lower parts of the rooms instead of the old system When the boiles are heated the warmth is uniform in all parts of the building, and a vast amount of fuel is saved, besides the labor of cutting and carrying wood to all parts ot the building to keep up from twenty to thirty fires during the winter. A new European range from the house, of Bramhall, Deane & Co., of New York, has been placed in the kitchen. ' This range has a capacity to cook for more than 200 persons and furnishes a supply of hot water for the dining room, kitchen and bath rooms. A new steam pump has been introduced for pumping water into the tanks' and fur nishing a supply , of steam for the boilers in the kitchen. This pump works beautifully. A sewer of 12 inch terra cotta pipe has been constructed, emptying into a branch below the shops of the R. & G. R. R. . This sewer is about 900 feet long and has long been needed: in order to preserve the proper cleanliness of the premises. ' A new . barn and stable has been built to replace the old and dilapidated structure which was used for that purpose. This building presents quite a handsome appear ance and the contract was faithfully execu ted by Messrs. Ellison and Noward, two of our most energetic builders. , We learn that it is the intention of the Directors to thoroughly repair theenclo "" Md in -remove some of tbe d resent un sightly buildings, and they , hripe to place" the institution buildings and premises in as thorough a state of repairs as they can with the means at their command beiore the commencement of the next session, Oct 31st We must not neglect to state the contract of Messrs. Wood & Co. was complied with in a highly satisfactory manner, and that the work was executed under the direction of Mr. John McNamee, who is a master workman. He was aided in the plumbing,1 &c, by Mr. James Thornton of the same es tablishment, who is also an excellent work man. i i. j The Board of Directors certainly deserve great credit for the interest they have taken in improving the ouiuings anatnus nauiug to their comfort and convenience. We hope that this noble Stale Charity will Ions be sustained to accomplish the noble work for which it was designed. . , The Raleigh Female Seminary. This school commenced a few weeks ago under the supervision of Prof. Royall, formerly of Wake Forest College. ' j The Rayner place was purchased and the dwelling house is occupied by the school. ' At present there arc seventy six students in attendance. . - , j Of this number about 85 are pursuing Collegiate ' and Elective studies the re mainder are in the Primary Department The music department is presided over by Prof. Bohlenama, a gentleman who needs no commendation as a teacher of .'music and a performer on the piano. He has two classes study ing vocal music, ,' embracing ..about three fourths of the school, which are mak ing rapid progress in this important branch of study. ' ;Tuition in vocal music ia with out charge.; ,f ' ' ! -.': ;- ''. Miss S. S. Fontaine, a most accomplished lady, has under her care those studying painting and drawing, and shows by the progress of ber pupils her entire adspted ness to the work. ' i:'.'V'J ' ', Five teachers belong exclusively to the Literary Department whose devotion to their work and efforts to instruct on sound principles are apparent to all acquainted with the internal condition of the Seminary. Prof. Rojall is the " right man in the right place," and with his competent corps of teachers, there is every reason to believe that the Seminary will continue, to increase in numbers and usefulness. ;' The situation is beautiful . Very pleasant in Summer, and asynuch so as any place can well be during the Winter months. : Tbe New York Times states that a new schedule of prices for stamped envelopes has been issued.

The announce ment that, this gentleman has accepted the position of Principal of an Institution for tie Deaf, Dumb anil the Blind, at Belleville, a city of some ten thousand inhabitant, lo cated on Lake Ontario, in Cnnfnrlft, will be received with the profoundest regret through out the entire State.' For ten yeais Mr. Palmer iias been Prin cipal of our State Institution for the Deaf, Dumb and Blind.1 During that long period he filled the position with unrivaled ability, and we part with him knowing that the In stitution has lost its most valuable officer, and the City of Raleigh a most useful citizen We wish Mr. Palmer every success in1 his position, and happiness in his new home, lie will be remembered by the people of this State as long as there is an Institution for the Deaf, Dumb and Blind.

A father who is habitually silent in his own house, may be in man respects a wise man ; but he is not in his silence. . We sometimes see parents who are the life of every company which they enter, dull, silent, uninteresting at home among the children. If they have not mental activity" and mental stores suf ficient for both, let them first provide for their own household. Ireland exports beef 1 and wheat, and lives on potatoes ; and they rare as poorly , who reserve their social charms for companions abroad, and keep' their dullness for home consumption. , It s better to instruct children and . make them happy at home than it is to charm strangers or amuse friends. A silent house is a dull place for yonng people a place from which .1 -r .i mi : 1 1 a 1 1 ' uey will escape ll tuey van. i irej wm utiii or think of being " shut up" there ; and the youth who, does not love home is in danger. r . ' '. ' '. , The.very best possible method of destroy-, ing an oilcloth is to wash it with hot .'water or soapsuds. The effect of such washings is to make it look very dingy when dry, and the coating to crack or peal off. Those who would keep their oilcloths bright and fresh should use only lukewarm water, - applied with a soft flannel. 1 We give this informa tion for the special benefit of the lady house keeping readers of the Standard.
