In the Superior court thin afternoon the jury in the case of Elizabeth B. MvComb vs. the Southern rnilrouel association rendered a verdict in favor of the plnintilf for the full amount claimed, $2,204,100, hem); the heaviest ever given in a Delaware court. The plaintiff is the widow ot the late Col. Henry S. McComb, who was a heavy stockholder in the Mississippi Central railroad, which wns absorbed by the Southern railroad association, and the verdict is for nine hundred Mis sissipi Central coiiHin bonds of $1,000 each bearing interest at seven per cent, from the date of the issue December 15, 1H73. The verdict does little more than establish the validity of the plaintiffs claim, since the assets will fall for below satisfying the iudimicnt. An argument was begun in the United States Circuit court here to-day in an allied case entitled "the Honrs locomo tive and machine works of New Jersey to the use ot New Jersey, to me use ot Ulna beth II.

MTKKKTB OF AHH1CVII.I.K. What Thev Wilt do for Htnttra Couutlea and Cltlc-H. Hdilnr Citizen ; Our streets mimt be iwrmuuently improved. There is no need of sentiment, or patriotism, or local pride to arinic to this end. The simple consideration of self interest is sufficient. Dollars and cents are involved, and to a degree not lully appreciated, This winter has liecn unusually favora ble, yet after a rain of one duv. our streets are such as to disgrace any city, town, village or iinnnet. wc lose more money each year from this cause alone, thnn would be needed to make the re. pairs. The trouble is that the money hitherto expended, has not been wisely used. No reflection is intended on the present pnst nor future administrations, but so loiiu us on efiort is made to do L'ood work, with the material at hand, hist us long win tne money ne wasted. bverv ettort should be made to accom plish on improvement, which promises to oe prominent. An opportunity is now presented, which should at least be fullv discussed and investigated, before it is eitner accepted or rejected. A representative of the Hale natenl brick pavement hnpieus to visit Aslie- ville on other Inisuiess, nnd his represen tation of the advantages ol' his pavement are such as to excite much interest. Both the material and construction, to me, are of novel character. After suita ble excavation, a layer of some absorb ent material is placed, upon which is mid covering ol oak plank one inch thick, rendered imiervious lo moisture by n coatingof conl tar; on this is a layer ol gravel, which in turn supports a course of vitrified brick laid on edge; boiling pitch is then swept over the surface, rill ing every crack, and while this is still hot a quantity of sharp sand isshovelcd over it, completing the whole, and giving u surface smooth, noiseless and durable. Such is the conipuny's statement, as I understand it. The great ipiestion to my mind, is that of durability and this is answered by a proposal to enter into bonds with security to be approved by the hoard of aldermen, to keep up all re pairs for a long term of years, nt an an nual cost of five cents' per yard. The cost of construction, 1 understand, will be one d.ilhtr and sixty cents per yard. White I repent, that Ixitliastomatcrial nnd construction, this is a new idea to me, the advantages unending success will he so great, that it is most unwise not to consider it most carefully. It is used extensively at Columbus, Ohio, a citv of two handled thousand inhabi tants, und subjected to a heavy traffic; also, ut Birmingham, Chattanooga, Mobile, Memphis and severnlotlicrcitics, from nil of which the company offer en dorsements of efficiency. I am told that this matter will probably he discussed to-niulit before the board of aldermen, and suggest that many of our citizens should be present. l-.very one is interested deeply; some thing must le done, and it is'certainly wise that all chances should be taken. every proposition well weighed, and a wise, conservative and prouressivcuction adopted, to remove what is the most serious drawback to Aaucvillc's pros perity. The financial trouble will ol course stare us in the face, but Asheville isyomlg in the march to citylmod, and "In the bright vocubiilary of youth. there's no such word ns fail." T. W. Patton. MORE RAILROADS), A Qnetttlou in which livery Real- dent la Vitally uncreated. My Countrymen: The oucstiou of the proposed new railroads through Western North Carolina is one of vital iinport n nee to every citixen, because it touches the interests nt every man, no matter what his occupation or in what section he lives. Our purpose insitfnkiiis to vou on the subject is not to dictate to you but to piirsunde you to give the matter your most eurnest und honest considera tion. More than this is nut needful to stir to nn intelligent ieople nlive to their own interests, uud to the development of the resources ot their country, csiwcmlly wheu so much uood is promised at an little cost: little cost, we say, because the enterprise promises to pay its own way nnd more. We ure only asked to allow it to come, to grant it the privi lege of coming. It is an inviting invest ment, not to us ulone, hut to our chil dren's children. Bverv railroad that touches our country brums money into our pockets, directly or indirectly, sooner or luter, und the gi enter their iiiiiiiImt the more the liencht to the people nnd the country. It put money into our pocket by the general eiihaiicenient of all properties. It enhances our farms iiecuuse it makes it easier mid clicuK?r to market what we grow for sale and at higher prices. It puts money into our pockets by making prices lower for what we have to buy that must come from abroad. It put's money into our pockets hy lowering our taxcs.'iind it lower our taxes by making us more able to pay them ourselves, and bringing into the country more mrn with more money to help us to pay them. And these men with their money come because the rail roads come. How much mure is this country worth thnn before we had a railronu? How much more would it be worth if we had us many more? Whenever we cun vote a railroad into the community we have bought "the goose that will lay us golden eggs." When we vote it out wc have killed the goose. If wc would know what railroads will do for it country we have only to look at those Stater that are full of them. I'or instance, Ohio is one-sixth smaller in site than North Carolina, uud has five times a much railroad mileage, and nine time the wealth. If we would know w hat railroads will do for o city let us look nt Atlanta, lo cated in the barren pine hills of North tieorgiu, lying in ashes nt the close of the wur, lint now the tjucen City of the South and one ol the most iiinrvvloiisly grown cities ul the tuition. Why such? She is a great railroad center. Kailninds have made her what she is, and she is iust getting under headway for a great city. Nature has Ihtii much more liberal in her gift to our own native city of Ashe ville than to Atlanta, and if her people will but cive her the came stimulus by making her a railroad center her future growth to greatness Is assured. lt us have all the railroads we can get by voting lor than.

MISCELLANEOUS. J. S. GRANT, Ph. G., Of Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, Apothecary, 94 South Main St. The Old Year has drawn to a close, and with the beginning of the New Year we wish to thank the public for their patronage and recognition of our efforts to do our full duty. We are fully con scious that it is to them that we owe the unexpected success of the past year, in which our business has been more than doubled, and we can only regard it as a new evidence that our business maxims ate such as to cause our customers to have confidence in us and attract those who ure cautious in dealing with any Pharmacist until they hare become fully assured of the nature and extent of bis business principles. In our dealing with the public we realize that the most scru pulous care and honesty are paramount imiortance. If these are virtues in all ordinary business transactions, they become sncred duties in Pharmacy, and without them no one can be a true Phar macist. The health, maybe the Hie, of those dealing with the Apothecary de pends upon them, lie consider it our most sacred duty to shun adulterations and spoiled as well as interior drugs. They constitute an evil from which Phar macy suffers no less than the public. The evil is not a new one, inaugurated in late years; it has existed as long as there were men whose cupidity was stronger than their sense of justice, and it will doubtless continue as long as there may be men with conceptions of business so vague that they expect to purchase gold for the money value of dross. There are no other moral principles required for transacting a Pharmaceutical business than are necessary for any other business. Unwavering integrity that remains unin fluenced by the visions of gold along the road nf questionable or deceitful prac tices is the only foundation for success that is worthy the name; it is so in every pursuit, and more particularly in Pharmacy, where as a matter of neces sity it must be comhin' r '.,. . iintxnt lair in .-,! oVfc?,;, so as to secure nil posMf'e sulci"' n!s.
