Correspondence of the Sentinel.
Wheat threshing has commenced.
Peaches and apples are quite
plentiful in this neighborhcxxl.
Miss Incsore of Salem, is spending a
few days with her sister, Mrs. Fara-
bee. Grass has got a good start of
corn and tobacco since there has been
so much wet weather. ; Wheat in
thi section is damaged to a great ex
tent, it has sprouted so that the shocks
look entirely green. Muddy Creek
has overflowed its bottoms fifteen times
since wheat was sowed last fall, there
will not be more than one-fifth of
a crop raised on its bottoms this year.

STOKES.
Correspondence of the Sentinel.
Farmers are badly behind with their
work. Wheat and winter oats are
badly damaged in the shock from the
continued wet weather. Corn and
tobacco on the bottom lands are
drowned out and will come to noth
ing. Politics are getting pretty
high up here, and we like the way
'.traveler talks about government mat
ters. We think some of the legal fra
ternity will step out and have their
places filled with industrious working
men who know what the laboring man
wants Such men as Henry E. Fries,
of your county, and J. F. Hill, of
Stokes, or many others whom I could
name would ensure us better laws than
we now have. Send good farmers or
mechanics to Congress and the Legis
lature, and let the lawyers run for
Judged and solicitors.- I hear of
several candidates for county offices,
D. V. Carroll of this place is a candi
date for Register of Deeds. More

TYREIX.
ttrreiftixdenee of the Senttnel.
We have had rains, and mostly co
pious ones, for nine days, and during
many of the nights. Should it cease
even now, I am very dubious of
ot even one-half crop of corn, the rice
being more imperious to water scald
ing, &c, may yet yield near a crop,
though badly behind now onjaccount of
the cessation ot work when it is most
needed. Our lands are naturally very
fertile, before the war, when labor was
abundant, and pocket-books more
plethoric, being justly styled the Egypt
of America, i. e., this entire section,
including Hyde and other counties.
But the drainage system having been
so badly neglected, and skilled labor,
and judgement lessoning by degees,
where we should readily realize eight
to ten bairels of corn, scarcely three
on an average, reward the ardeous ex
ertions of the tillers of the soil. The
denizens are hard working, orderly,
and attending mainly to their own
affairs, let politics and outside issues
severely alone. Cleveland's reign
seems to give general satisfaction, ex
cept his too literal adhearance to the
Civil Service, fraud as it is carried
out. Politics are gently simmering,
have not yet had sufficient caloric.
Our County officers will, I guess, be
renominated, and elected for we are
true blue Democrats, not many of
Ethiopian lineage, or tendancies.
A little colored girl was accidentally
shot near here a few days ago but is
improving. L.
Gum Keck.
DAVIE.
Correspondence of the Sentinel
It is not often you hear from us over
here, but this fall you may expect to
hear good news from Davie when she
rolls up a large Democratic majority
which she certainly will do. There
are ht. of men in this conntV who
have licii vou.i llotnjiie.ui lic'C
et that will vote the Democratic tick
et tbjis fall, and you may expect a good
majority. One of the severest
storms known for many years passed
over this neighborhood yesterday eve
ning, with terrific thunder and light
ning, wind and hail. Trees were up
rooted, fences blown . down : and the
wheat and ' oat crop blown over the
fields and the large tobacco was move
or less damaged by hail. .The follow
ing farmers' tobacco crops were more
or less damaged ; J. D. Orrell, R. S.
Fitts, and W. A. Bailey. During the
storm a tree was blown across Mr.
Frank Cooper's hog pen killing two
fine large hogs, all that he had.

HALIFAX-
Corre-tpondence of Hie "Sentinel.
There are fine.crop prospects iu this
section of the State, in fact there lias
been the largest harvest of small graiu
in this county than we ever had in
ten years, notwithstanding most of the
farmers having neglected their duty,
have lost thousands of bushels of wheat
and oats which was left in small stacks
on the fields and wre damatred bv
the heavy rains and freshets in Roan- !
oke River. What was fine fields of j
corn and cotton in the Roanoke bot
toms, or (what is termed here the low
lands) ten days ago ; is to-day a vast
expanse of water. It is not possible
now to give a definite idea of the
damage to crops in general, although
there is a total loss of at least ten
thousand barrels of corn in Halifax
and Bertie counties, and even these
figures may fall far. short of the actu
al loss. Your correspondent was to
day informed by a gentleman that he
has one hundred and fifty acres of
cotton that is now entirely submerged,
which is about three-fourths of his en
tire cotton crop, and some of his
neighbors are equally as heavy losers
as himself. Previous to the freshet
there were several colored farmers
here who were in fair circumstances,
owning their own teams, renting their
land and having a good crop in sight
now they will not make enough to
last them a month, their year's workj is
a total loss. A.
Scotland Keek.

dicial District, at Asheville, N. C,

preme Court.
We saw on Saturday last farmers
buying vegetables in this market to
carry home. This may seem strange
to some, but is nevertheless true. These
are the kind of men who complain of
hard times. Elizabeth City Falcon.
The Irish potato crop in the North
eastern counties has failed. This is a
very important early crop for the
Northern markets, and in good years

prehended. Two freshets in the Pee Dee river

During the war there was buried

ments, repeating nearly exactly the
words of Gaston and wound up by re
vuesting the exec iu infers to make
xuick work of it. They attached the
cap and roue and knocked the boxes
from under him. A negro .woman
passing just then saw the little fellow

down. He would have died in a short
time bill for his timely rescue."
