N. B. Josey A Co. A strange revolution has taken place in Washington during the last two or three years. Suddenly, and without premonition, it has become a city. Formerly the town went to sleep when Congress adjourned, and enjoyed the deep slumber that fol lows a carouse. Now it is, although it is June. Don Cameron's big house is all forlorn, the windows are down, the shades are up, and a man I and a dog, as solitary as Robinson Crusoe, are in charge. The Pendle ton's house, next door, is also barred and closed. Ex-Senator Windom still does business at the old stand, but, as when he goes he goes for good, he is not in a hurry to move. The receptions at the houses of the Cabinet officers are still kept up in half-hearted, perfunctory way. There is one peculiarity about the social duties of the Cabinet families embarrassing to them and mortifying to many persons. As they receive a great many calls uring the season often as many as S0O a week it is impossible to re turn them all, and the nice question comes up ot who shall leave a call iu person, and tho only a card. Fre- inghuysens, who are exceedingly polite, on one occasion had their cards returned to them by an irraso uiable lady, who saw them get out of their carriage at her next door neighbors, atter having sent cards by the footman to her.

Mr. Emery is one of the most prosperous, energetic, and thrifty men in the county, and we wish some of our Roanoke farmers would follow him, and sow grass and clover. The investment would pay. The Calesthenic exercises given at the Female Academy Friday night, were pronounced by a Baltimore gentle man to be as good, comparing numbers, as similar ezercies he witnessed at the Peace Institute of Raleigh. The drill was given by Miss Eunice McDowell, un der whose carelful training the girls have been for the past five mouths. The oc casion did great credit to Miss McDowell, who has already distinguished herself for her thoroughness in teaching and good qualities in every way. Says the Greensboro Patriot : A Baltimore drummer, who just com pleted a tour through the btate, says Greensboro shows more signs of life and is growing faster than any town in the State. He also says, and it is very grati fying to hear it, that Greensboro merch nts stand as high as any town in the South. The town is hllildinir n nn it. own merits, and, in a few years, it will be the most prosperous and enterprising town in the State. Note the prediction Somehow editors cenerally feel like it is a part of the requisites to eood journalism to say something for tbeir town occasionally. We .r inclined ta think that this consideration draws forth many compliments for the town where the editor lives: but we hardly think there are many towns in the country wnicn can boast of more rapid progress. or of more clever business men and more general thrift than Scotland Neck.
