C, last Thursbay night, was devoted to an effort to array the blacks against the whites and was calculated to have aoy other than a good effect. . We Rbcohmend To the ssovereign vo ters of this Congressional District, the name of Clem S. Camper, Esq., as their next Rep resentative in Congress. Mr. Camper is " truly loil," of unflinching Radicalism and most striking appearance. Let the peop'e reward merit. Personal.

The attrition of educators is directed to the adve.isement of this school, one of the most veirable in the State, its sixty fourth terra coimencing on the 29th inst. St. Mary's is Icated on pleasant and beautiful grounds atur State capitol, and having a full corps of rofessors, offers great inducements to tho; having young ladies to educate. , Foxes. Our friend of the Milto Chronicle tells a story of a fox race of sixt, miles or more. He ought to advise the unters to get better dogs, for instance, slue of the Edgecombe stock. A party oi entlemen wont out in this county last Mnday and caught four of the tly animals, fore din ner. How is that brother Evan. Great Bargains. Messrs. L Iieilbron r & Bro., are offering great reduction In prices for cash on all their gods ; dress goods worth a dollar a yord at Jo per cent, reduotion, and silks, furs, overcoats, die, at a corresponding discount. Tiese tantie me n are energetic business tu o and seem determined not to carry their whter stock over to summer. Call and supy yourself and family. Morals. Two gentlemen wre on our streets a few days ago discussing the vexed question of ethics, when one ngaarked that he always taught his son both 4des of the question. " For instance," said " my lit tle boy and myself got to btfting a few nights ago and I won all his cpts, where upon I remarked to him, my sci, never bet your last cent." Query : Wp the child taught anything else than firewdness in betting.'? '"- Right. A gentleman wtl. heard to re mark to another, " I always i&e my county paper, whether it is conducted to suit in all particulars or not." This is to a certain extent correct, for every citizen should endeavjr to sustain an enterprise that is working or the public good, and while we have t light to expect something from such an agument, we Bhall rely upon the merits of thi merchandize we sell, if our paper is not wrth the pittance of $2.00 we shall expect thepblic to drop it, First try it, however, befoi you condemn it. Important Nofice. A meeting of the Stockholders of the Edgecombe Female Seminary, will be held at the Court House, Wednesday, the 4th of February, at 11 o'clock. It is earnestly hoped that as many as possible will be rep resented, in person or by jroxy, as business of vita! importance to the -nterprise is to be transacted. By order of the Board 'k Directors. t M. eddell, Sec'y. The lloa QuKSTioN.Oiur Franklin cor respondent sends us thiejllowing, which he regards as a clincher rpoi. our boast of Mr. Edmondson's big hogs. Mr. G. G. Gill of FrUiklln County has fed 21 persons every yur since the war and has not bought a pourd of bacon or a bush el of corn, during the while lime. He has not sold a bale of cotttn la 4 years and has his entire 4 years crops rn band. He says farmers who wish to he independent, should raise their own supplies. We are inclined to think Mr. Gill would have made more monty if he had sold his cotton while prices weie high and bought pork at almost any price. His raising his own poik is, however, to be recommended. Bests. We would call the attention of property holders to the rents demanded in our community, ranging from 10 to 30 per cant, upon the valua of the property. The great desideratum In real estate is its secu rity, and nowhere is it expected to pay such profits as temporary investments or where the capital is subject to various risks: Hence, if money is bringing 8 per cent, on loans with personal security, it should not be expected that real estate would realize more than six after deducting insurance, taxes, &c We hope this subject may meet with consideratien from property holders, for we have no doubt that persons are de terred from settling among us an account of rents beyond their power to pay. Duel Stopped. Our readers wiH recol lect, that more than a month ago cards were published in this paper by Capt. Wm. Biggs and Dr. L. L. Staton in reference to the al leged purchase of the Southerner, in which personalties were freely indulged. It seems that since that time a correspondence had been kept up between the two gentlemen, and on last Sunday both, with one or two gentlemen as friends, were missing from the community, nnd their object being surmised a warrant wes issued upon affidavit and a specially appointed officer set out to arrest them. He succeeded in reaching Rocky Mount, whore the parties were waiting to embark, and arrested Capt. Biggs, who was taken before a J. P. and recognized. Dr. Staton having given him the slip, but return ed home that night. Thus the duel, if any was intended, has been stopped, and peace reigns in W ai saw. " Have a Drisk 1" This is such an an cient and venerable way of showing gener ous hospitality and sociability that it is a pity to be compelled to forego its askiug or acceptance, as cold water men are forced to do. We therefore suggest a plan by which every one can ask his friend to take a drink without violence to his conscience, or to his stomach in the way of 'aimmon beer. It is this : let it be known that there was a place in town, where a person could go any time of the day and get a good, No. 1, hot cup of coffee, Mr. Spragins' for instance, and, our word for it, it will be abundantly patronized by drinkers of spirits as well as temperance people. There is more genuine and lasting stimulating effects, without intoxication, in coffeu than almost any other beverage. Let some ons try the experiment of a coffee-house in Tarboro', pfer rather than take nauseous medicine; and this is not to Le wondered at, as ijrie remedy is often worse than the disease. Sufferers from coughs, colds, influenza, sore thtfoat, or tendency to Consumytion, will nn(U in Dr. nalar Jiauam oj trua Slurry a remedy as agrees Die to the palate as eflec- tu al m removing disease. Mkitixo of County Commissioners. The Bo.ird held its regular monthly meet ing last Monday ; Present, M. P. Edward, McD. Malbv'WHon, W. T. Uodwiu aud N. B. Bellamy. Orders for rations sum, amounting in the aggregate to about $500, were given to 77 paupers for support to April 1st. Besides numerous amounts were allowed for special county work, services to the poor, Ate., and 5855.86 were allowed B. J. Keech for sup plies to the poor for the months of October, November and December. A petition was sent in from the Trustees of Sparta Township asking the Ccunty Com missioners to again take charge of v.'e Spar ta bridge. The matter was laid on thb table. Dr. W. A. Duggan, a Superintendan of the Poor, reported he nil received from tJie Public Treasurer and had on hand $246.74, which he had placed in the bands of 8. J. Keech on special deposit. It was ordered that he pay the same to the County Treas urer in county orders. Why he should be permitted to retaiu the money and pay the Treasurer in orders obtained at a discount, we are at a loss to know. Col. Wm. II. Knight, ex-Sheriff, was al lowed 1200 insolvent poll", with the under standing thnt if be should collect n any it was to be paid into tL Treasury.

A Complihest. 'Though often used In terchangeably, we hold that there is a radi cal difference between a compliment and flattery, the one being a friendly commenda tion, the other bat a play upon one's vanity. Adulation should be spurned, a compliment is sweet to every one. And especially is a compliment to be prized when it is from one in whom we recogniz e real worth and ability to criticise. Such we deem the fol lowing from our friend, the Wilmington Journal. We have received the first number of the Tarboro' Enquirer-SoutKtmer, being the offspring of the marriage of the veteran Southerner and the youthful Enquirer. The consolidated paper is edited by Captain EL R. Stamps. While we regret exceedingly to lose Captain Willux Bioas from the "press gang," we are glad that the strength of the two papers have been united under an Edi tor so capable and worthy as Captain Stamps. We hope our friends in .Edgecombe and the surrounding country will now rally to the support of their paper, thus enabling its Editor to eive them an organ, such as he is competent to edit, and which will be at once a source of pride and an honor to them. Give the combined paper the patronage of both the old ones, and more, and we are sure that the Enouirer-Southerner will return in an hundred fold In substantial benefits all that may be done for it. We congratulate our friend upon the strength which the combination gives him to labor for the advancement of his people, and we trust be may do so successfully for them and for himself, knowing that he appreciates the responsibilities and will improve the ad vantages devolving upon him. $150,000 Gives Awat the present year to the people of America by Dr. R. V. Pierce of Buffalo, New York, in his little memoran dum books, amounting to over two hundred and fifty tons in weight, and the paper for which costs about $125,000. This the Doc tor is enabled to do by reason of the superi or merits of his Family Medicines, which yearly and rapidly increase in popularity, their sale new reaching over half a million dollars worth for the year, and exceeding that of any other medicines manufactured for general sale, as shown by the amount of United States Revenue stamps purchased for stamping them.
