The Postmaster at Whitakers, a Mr.
Taylor, we learn, met with a dreadful
accident Tuesday. He attempted to cross
the railroad, with a mail-bag on his
, shoulder, in front of an approaching train,
, stumbled and fell, and before he could
I recover himself the locomotive passed
overhim cutting off both legs. When
last heard from the unfortunate man was
still alive, but, being old and feeble, it is
feared that the accident may prove fatal
V e have always heard it said, "Be
ware of a mules hind legs," but a Mr
Riddick, near this place, has sufficient
cause to remember the front part of a
mule. We learn that a few days ago
while plowing in the field he stopped to
go in front of his mule, and the mule
being spiteful, caught him by the leg,
jumped a ten-rail fence, carrying man
and plow over at one leap. Mr. R. was
considerably bruised, but not seriously
injured, we are glad to learn. In the
future he will beware of a mule's strong
teeth.
Chas Ria, a descendant of Ham, drove
into town last Tuesday perched upon
cartload of vegetables, eggs, beef, Ac.
()f course he was driving a mule, and
when said mule ncared Noah Biggs &
tVs steam millf he -seemed to object to
the close proximity to steam, smoke and
noi.se, and commenced to run. He took
an air line for Jacob Hill's hotel. ran over
the corner of it, upset the cart and out
rolled broken eggs,all kinds of vegetables
and four quarters of beef,burying the driv
er beneath the mixture. He managed to
extricate himself, however, gathered up
what was left in a saleable condition and
Went on his way rejoicing.

Mr. and Mrs Noah Biggs returned home

Mrs L. W. Bagley arrived Tuesday, and
was warmly welcomed by her friends in
this town.
Miss Sallie McDowell, who has been
visiting friends in Murfreesboro, returned
home Tuesday last.
Hop. The young people of the town
and vicinity enjoyed one of the most pleas
ant hops of the season at Pittman's Hall
last Tuesday night. The Hall was crowd
ed with fair and charming girls and gal
lant beaux tripped the light fantastic to
enlivening stains of delightful music.
Scotland Neck can turn out the prettiest
girls and more of them than any town in
the State, and when we see them in the
brightest of costumes assembled in a Hall
we cannot imagine how our bachelor
friends, in their forlorn and buttonless
condition, can resist the merciless god of
love. If there were any present last
Tuesday night, when eyes looked lore in
to eyes, we are sure some of Cupids darts
must have pierced their callous hearts.
The Shooting Match. There was a
shooting match in this town last Thurs
day for a fine buggy and horse. The
entrance fee was $10 each, and twenty-
four chances were taken. The shooting
was the best we have ever witnessed and
at the close of the tenth round there
were ten ties, viz t B Englehard, 5;
Dr Clark, 3; J J Robertson, 1 ; J G
Shields, 1. These gentlemen then pro
ceeded to shoot off the tie, but when the
shells had all been exhausted and the
shades of evening fell around them, there
were nine ties. Seeing that it was im
possible to decide, the gentlemen sold
their chances to Mr Hassard-Short, he
paymg them twenty dollars for each
chance. We would publish the score,
but our columns are crowded this week.
Willottghby Reade. Prof. Reade
gave two charming entertainments in this
town last week and was greeted on both
occasions by good audiences. The Prof,
is master of the art of elocution, and as
an actor he has few superiors on the
stage. If hearty laughter and long ap
plause be any indication of pleasure, then
we would say the Prof, undoubtedly had
very well pleased audiences in this town.
All seemed highly delighted, and very
much enjoyed the humorous as well as
the serious selections. His interpretation
of Poe's Raven, we thought, was correct,
and he certainly read it as we have never
had the pleasure of hearing it read before.
Mr. Reade also gave a Bible reading at
the Baptist church last Sunday, and there
was a large congregation out to hear him,
He read several choice passages of script
ure and then delighted his congregation
with music. Mr. Reade has a very fine
and powerful voice and sings well. Ev
erybody present seemed well pleased and
went away feeling that they had not spent
the Sabbath hours in vain.
OUR ENFIELD LETTER.
ISpecial correspondence Commonwealth.
Enfield, Aug. 28, 1882
Curiosity drew a large crowd to the
tournament. All ages of both sexes
were out. A greater number would have
been in the way of the skaters. The ages
of the skaters ran up the scale gradually,
from the small boy, to the youth with
caterpillar of an undecided hue on his up
per Hp. Hobbledehoys mostly. Except
ing the base.ball shirts worn by some for
comfort, there was no affectation whatever
entering the list when called by their
christian names.
Henry Cuthrell made the two best
scores 13 for himself, and 15 for Crawford
Branch, out of a possible 18, winning the
skates for Branch which was the main
feature of the occasion. There was so
much speechifying by the rink proprietor
just before the presentation that, the
somewhat confused and expectant recip
lent told him if he would "cheese it," he
might keep the skates. Then came the
coronation, creating no end of mirth and
laughter, because it was "too thin" on
the part of the young man. and something
of a joke on the astounded queen. Amid
continued laughter and bursts of applause,
the prospective queen would not alio
the crown to be placed upon her brow.
telling the young man to seek some "fair
lady" whose age was more comfortable,
but it would not work, for all saw him
approach her, and the "dog was dead."
His excuse was that he had (jokingly)
promised the lady to crown her in the
event of his success, hence, could not go
back on it. Suppose under the circum
stances his finer feelings would not suffer
him to crown the queen ot his heart,
which he has explained to her satisfaction,
ere now, no doubt.
The negro Burgwm who, some time
ago stole corn from Mr. G. W. Branch,
was sent up for two years, by the Inferior
court.

REPUBLICAN COUNTY CONVEN-
TION.
THE STRAIGHTOUTS GET THE MEAT AND
THE LIBERALS THE BONES.
The Republican county convention met
in Halifax last Saturday and was called
to order by J. T. Gregorys chairman
Republican County Ex. Committee. He
stated the object of the meeting and that
it was gratifying to him to see such an
outpouring of the Republicans of Halifax
county. It showed that they had worK
to do and intended doing it. He coun
seled harmony and concert of action.
The roll of Townships was called and
the delegates passed their credentials to
the secretary, after which the permanent
organization was perfected by the election
of J. T. Gregory chairman, J. H. Ham-
mon and R. J. Lewis, secretaries. Mr.
Gregory on taking the chair stated that
he felt complimented by the honor the
convention had conferred upon him, it
afforded him pleasure to preside over such
a vast assemblage of the citizens of good
old Halifax county.
There was cosiderable wrangling as to
what part of the business the convention
should first take up, finally, however, it
was -agreed to commence at Superior
Court Clerk and come down through the
list of county officers.
It was announced that J. C. L. Harris
Secretary of State Central Ex. Commit
tee was in the Convention and wished to
address it for fifteen or twenty minutes.
There were loud calls for Harris ! Harris !
He arose and stated that he was sent
there by the Chairman of the Republican
Ex. Committee to impress upon the con
vention the importance of recognizing the
liberal element of the Democratic party
of N. C. He wanted the liberals to have
some position on the county ticket to con
tradict the assertions made in the west
that the negroes of the eastern counties
were drawing the color line. Jarvis's
121,000 would beat Buckston's 115,000
and unless something could be done North
Carolina would remain in the hands of
the Democrats. Mahone had tried this
plan in Virginia, had triumphed last year
and would triumph again. He said that
this element was composed of such men
as Reid, Clingman, Day and others, who
had renounced their allegiance to the
Democratic party. That they would all
be Republicans before the campaign ended
and in November, if the vote was counted
as cast, the State would go Republican
by 25,000 majority and Bourbon democra
cy would be buried so deep that the hand
of resurrection could never reach it. He
thought they could infuse new blood in
the party by this move and save the State.
At this juncture a delegate wanted to
know what action the State Ex. Commit
tee had taken in regard to the Hubbs-
O'Hara matter. He stated that they had
not taken any action against O'ilara, that
he (O'Hara) was entitled to the nomination
as a matter of recognition, those were his
views of the policy of the convention.
Nominations now being in order, J. T.
Gregory was nominated by acclamation
for Superior Court Clerk. R. J. Lewis
for Sheriff by acclamation. J. H. Ham-
mon and James Allen were put in nomi
nation for Register Deeds. Allen's name
was withdrawn and Hammon was nomi
nated by acclamation. He returned
thanks to the convention for the honor of
being the first colored man ever nomina
ted for Register Deeds in Halifax county,
W. H. Day, L. W. Batchelor, E. T. Clark
and E. D. Browning were put in nomina
tion for Treasurer. Day's name was
withdrawn, and on the first ballot Clark
was nominated ; but there was a motion
to reconsider, upon the ground that the
office "was worth but little to the Repub
licans," they could put a liberal in the of
fice and thereby gain the good fellowship
of their western brothers, without any
danger to themselves. And this is the
way liberals are treated by Republicans,
given an office that is net 4 'worth much."
There was considerable confusion when the
motion to reconsider was made, but it
finally prevailed and E. D. Browning was
nominated as the Liberal candidate for
Treasurer. J. H. Jenkins was nominated
for Coroner, W. C. Daniel for Surveyor.
J. T. Reynolds, John C. Jones, Andrew
Jackson and J. J. Goodwin were placed
in nomination for the Senate. Richard
Higgs in placing the name of Goodwin
before the convention stated that G. was
a white man and he wanted to send him
to Raleigh to show to the west that the
eastern negroes had not drawn the color
line. Goodwin was elected on first bal
lot. T. W. Hardy, H. J. Hulin, ' H. E.
Davis, J. T. Bailey, Ivy Hudgins, J. a!
Pittman, C. C. Baker and R. J. Mayo
were put in nomination jfor House of Rep.
resentatives. Pittman was declared elect
ed on the fifth ballot. By .this time things
were getting to fever heat, there being only
one other nomination to make, . and six
aspirants were in the field. Six ballots
were taken and no election, fc'jt it was evi-
dsfttthC.1 Hardy was the coming man. fi?
the tafcfag of tiC seventh ballot it wag
shown that Hardy bad r'Cpeived the re
quisite number of voltes to lect him, but
before the result could be announced,
Davis' friends attempted to capture the
convention, when a scene of the wildest
confusion ensued. For half an hour the
chair tried in vam to bring the convention
to order. Walking canes, umbrellas,
hats and handkerchiefs were waved in the
air. Desk and tables were mounted by
the delegates and aspirants with cries of
Hardy! Davis! Hardy! Davis &c.
Finally the chair succeeded in getting
hearing and the secretary announced that
Hardy had received 18 votes before the
contusion but that since that time several
had changed their votes and it was impos
sible to keep pace with them. The chair
announced that Hardy was the nominee,
but the Davis faction appealed and the
harangue, which was a disgrace to the
convention, continued. When our report
closed no .nomination had been made.
But we have learned since that Hardy
was finally nominated and the Davis fac
tion wilted and accepted the inevitable.
Mr. Gregory made a splended presiding
officer and we only wonder how he ever
succeeded in bringing order out of chaos.
The following is the ticket:
Superior Court Clerk J. T; Gregory.
Sheriff R. J. Lewis.
Reg. Deeds J. H. Hammon.
Treasurer E. D. Browning.
Coroner J. H. Jenkins.
Surveyor W. C. Daniel.
For the Senate J. J. Goodwin.
