When the train reached Conoco. nary Creek on Tuesday morning it was found that the trestle over the sream was washed away by the freshet. The pass engers and mail were sent on hand-cars to Halifax.

If they would subscribe for and read a good newspaper they would be a little better posted. The rains on Sunday night were so heavy that it was thought almost un safe to run the train from here to Halifax. We learn that it was found necessary to occasionally stop tbe train to see if the cross-ties were in place. What ought an editor to do when a brother editor says he wants to exchange, and thus gets editor number one to send his paper to editor number two, and then lets the matter drop? How about it, Bro. Dossey Hattle ? Give the 'Sittings" a little poetical sift for us. i We have received the Newbern Journal, edited by H. S. Nunn. We are pleased with it and enter it at once on our X list. The editorial in the present issue is quite interesting, giving pleasing statements of the Graded School. See clippings in "here and there" column.

Hearne, of Norfolk, Va., has paid quite a compliment to our State bv naming a new steamer in honor of Cumberland county. The Fayette ville Observer says : "In Honor of Cumberland. We think that an insertion of the follow ing note received by the Observer irom the patriotic writer, is nil that is necessary to insure a response to Maj. Hearne's graceful act, ic keep ing with the character of the people complimented, and with their habit of handsomely doing things : Norfolk, April 14, 1883.

The Exposition which opens at Louisville August 1, will in all respects, be a more satisfactory representation of Southern resources than has ever before been made. The people of the south owe it to them selves to see that every branch of indus try is there shown in a manner creditable to all concerned in it. Rates by railroads will be low from all sections of the country. The Southern Railroad Association has fixed the fare for round trip tickets at 3 cents per mile. That is, any one living 200 miles away can get a round trip ticket for 6. This insures a vast crowd in attendance, and it is all the more necessary to have everything re lating to Southern industry fully represet. ed.
