FAYKTTKV'ILLE. X. C. AVEDNKAY. SEPTEMBER 20. 1S3. TO WN It VELETIN. Ghkktixo The local reporter oi the m n co!innjnffs his weekly round of duties to-d:iv with a cheerful heart, but vith some trepidation, nevertheless. The eurrent of trade, the statistics of husiiM'S, the l)iisy hum of the engine ;ind the wheel, tlie merchant's hustle ";ml the funner's thrift, all await, his no lire and claim some passing tribute from hi pen. The comedies and the t raged i"s of life ar('about him always . the oraiii'e b!o.L-:oms of the graceful hi i.hd wreath and the weeping cypress div-p'-'d :t!'ove t!ie tomb; the rhythmic measure tf the dance and the muffled tread of mourners feet; the joys that n-ake the fleeting hours so bright and tin- carking cares and crushing sorrows ihat make the nights too dark and the d.ivs too lieavy to le borne how shall lie catch all these lights and shadows, th;tt come but a moment and are gone V "iielieve us, friends, had he the power to v. ill it so. the shadows would come to 1 niggle never with the day's bright ness, and the grief of stricken hearths ntid darkened home.s should be un known! We shall strive to be a faithful chron ii ler of events, great and small the pol itician's eloquence, the citizen's enter prise, the building of houses and the 1 turning down thereof, our growth, our progress and prosperity things grave enough to arrest the attention of even ,the counting-room magnate, and "trifles light as air" that catch but the eye of ureless youth. Do not, young lady, ywh "your lip such scorn" and call us v "old prose" if now and then the lo- column bristles with figures; for ;..",r dainty boots and six-button kids i:-pend much upon futures and the price of naval stores. Xor do you, staid city father, "pooh ! pooh !" us if some- j tiiius we flippantly come on the stage ! with the cap and bells; for the world has not grown too old to enjoy a laugh and. as Mr. Sleary, the showman, told j Mr. Urad:rrinl, wish his atrocious lisp, ; "the people musth be amuthed." Even 1 'melancholy Jacques" could not make it j otherwise. All this we shall do as well as we ' can. asking no other favor than the in- diligence of a generous public; and if I ve ever "extenuate" from goodness of heart, be sure we shall "set down naught in malice" in abuse of our position. I IIioii W Arnn. The Cape Fear, since last Friday, has been very full, and has caried a rise jf about twenty-five feet of water to the sea. Di i: Tuaxks.

Hon David Davis, v-Yu e-PresHlent of the United States, j rived here this morning, to be ths test of Congressman W.J. (Jreen, at l is elegant residence, Tokay. AVe regret t' learn that .judge Davis was delayed Muewhat on his journey here by the ll!it'ss of his son. The people of this t'liimunity lartily welcome Judge Ja is for his distinguished public ser vices and illutiioiis character, and his Juvoniplished wife for the charms and Ki ui es which v on for her so many Fay lUeiHe friends. The Good Samaritans. The celebration of the "Good Samaritans" was well-attended, and th3 street procession with innsic was qnite imposing the whole endingwith afes tival at night Out of .Sight. The Florence Kail road is moving steadily southward, and. is already out of sight of town. The contsruction train is carrying material three-quarters of a mile beyond the trestle, and he would be a "doubting Thomas" who is yet unconvinced that the southern extension is an assured fact. . . State Guard Xotes. Capt. W. S. Cook, commandant of the LaFayette Light Infantry, has furnished to us in teresting notes of the State Guard in spection, from which we learn that the LaFayette and Independent companies passed inspection, as did also the 1 low are Light Infantry (col). This secures the appropriation of 150 a year to this place. Specimen Copiks.

On Monday evening next the Independ ent Light Infantry will hold a compet itive drill in Williams Hall in full uni form, the prize to the successful Con testant, a handsome silver goblet, to be presented by Mr. J.

The new quarters will add greatly to the comfort and convenience of the f.chool. An Excitixo Chase. A negro up before Justice Troy's court last Satur day attempted to bolt from tlie majesty of the law, and left the precincts of that sacred temple, "nor cast one longing, lingering look behind." But the judicial ermine was cast aside, for a good mag istrate will not only catch his bird but hold him, and as the fugitive liew up street there was a warlike Trojan gal loping clowe behind. "The Campbells were coming, too, amtasine Diue coai- ed marshal darted out upon the street the runaway was stopped in his mad career. Hymeneal. On the evening of the J 20th inst., at 8 o'clock, in the Presbyte j rian Church, Mr. Prank (Hover was u- nited in marriage to Miss Kate Smith, daughter of J. C. Smith, Esq., formerly of "Wilmington.

Avery trifling matter will sometimes stop the greatest tide ot eloquence that ever flowed. A Hay street merchant was the other day passing along the Market Square from the post-office with a bundle of papers and let uuder his arm. He was holding forth to a friend ou the state ot the country, and he remark ed that "the views of Mr. Carlisle ou the tariff" aud then there was a wild yell, and papers were flying, and there was a man on his back on the pavement trying to catch his breath, and two big f.-et gyrating in the air as if they were trying to slip out to the fair grounds. Then he got up and address ed the crowd, after throwing a paving-stone nt a firAvnian near bv who seemed ereatlv ftbout something. He said he would ; emigrate to Liberia as soon as he could set tle tip his busiuess; wouldn't s-tay in a conn ! try that owned the pestiferous seuppernong 1 and all the time he was trying to pin a big rent in the knee of his breeches with a nail, ! Then a fellow came up and asked him if he fell accidentally, which made him so mad that he tolled off up street with a sort of lop-sided wave to his gait thr.t ? showed he hiu'n't be.n sitting down easy. For a little 1 thing that is chuck full of devilment a slick I grape-skin or a juicy watermelon-rind on the j pavement beats the world. The Maekets.

LloLLiNGsvroKTH, a native of Fayetteville and a young man honored by all who knew him for Ins many noble qualities of mind and hear!; and his death is mourned, not alone by the lovrd ones of m imme diate family, but by a hat of friends wilh whom he has he an immediately associated throughout childuood's sunny hurs and the halcyon daj- of his youth and early manhood. But those who mourn are com forted by the blessed asstuance given in bis last hours that ho was reconciled to God, at peace wdh man and accepted of hi Saviour, and that ''when this earthly house of his tabernacle should di?olve, ho had a building of God, an hoiucnot made with hands eternal in ths heavens,'" whiihor lie would go to enjoy the ret remaining for the finally faithful.
