How is this brother Editors 1 "Speak now, or forever hold your peace ! We interviewed Mr. "W. II. Bast, (colored) a few days ago, who has jiut returned with eight others from Indi ana, and have prepared the interview for the press, but space will not per mits its insertion iu this issue. The facts, however, that we drew from Mr. Best are somewhat different from his interview ty the Carolina Enterprise in its last issue, The "Exodusters" will all soon return and from present indi cations the agents that persuaded them away will have to hunt tall timber. Taylor Evans, the great "Exodus Mogul," took the wind in due time and made good his escape and left a poor, helpless woman, and several children upon the cold charities of the world. "The good that men do in the world is often interred with their bones," but we should not be surprised if some torment has Evans by the lug and will haunt his prosperity in life.

Edwards oc cupied by him as a bar, "was tho next to catch, and by tearing down a small building adjoining and the persistent efforts of our citizens the fire was pre vented from spreading any further, At one time it was thought that the hotel would be burned but by hard work it was saved. The Engine and company were on the ground promptly and did all they could but alas I the water supply of the town is limited to barely ' enough for drinking, laundry and culinary purposes. v We noticed that Lieut.

Our lad j readers can hardly fail !0 have their attention called this week to the latest combination of mproveruents in that , most useful of all domestic implements, tho "sewing machine." As we understand it, a machine or family use should meet first of all these requirements: It should be siraplo In its mechanism, so as to be easily - managed; it should run easxlv. so as not to wearv the. work er unduly; it should do, a wide range of work, that the owner need not wish for any other machine; it should bo as nearly noiseless as possible, that it may not be a nui sance; it should be light, handsome, durable, and as cheap as is cons sistent with excellence throughout. These conditions the "Light Run ning New Homo" certainly meets. It has also several very important and usetul attachments and "no tions'' of its own, which go far to make good its claims to popular favor. Now a groat many families have been and are still using tbe old ma chines waiting for the times to improve; waiting lor tbo latest im provements in designs and mechan ical excellence. But why delay longer ? Consid ering the low price at which good machines are now sold, and the improvements that have been made, now is a good time to buy, and the "New Home" specially recommends itselt to. purchasers on account ot its superior mechanical construction, ease of management and reasonable prioo. Nearly half a million have been sold in the last three years, all of which are giving universal satis faction. This unrivalled machine is manufactured .
