Raleigh Sentinel: On Wednesday sight at about 10 o'clock the jail at Louisburg was discovered to be on fire. In spite ol every exertion the jail was consumed and three of the prisoners. . One of the windows was cut and two of the prisoners were saved, one of them being nearly eufficated. Two of the three who were burned to death wer confined in one of the lower rooms, and set fire to the prison, the result being destructive to themselves and one other as stated. The Wilson Plaindealer says: On Thursday night last five prisoners con fined in the Wilson county jail in this town broke out and made their escape not having been captured or heard from since, so far as we know. They were all negro men under different charges, for ordinary larceny, for bur glary and for horse stealing, these lat ter being, as is known, ser.ous crimes. A sixth prisoner, likewise a negro man, declined to accompany the others, for reasons sufficient to himself. The Winston Sentinel says: An old gentleman, well to do in this world's goods, not living a thousand miles from here, but who had passed his three score years and ten, and left alone in this world wilderness with none to caress or cook for him, and both hands too sore to do culinary service, resolved to get married, and on last Christmas day, through a mu tual friend, was introduced to a lady, proposed, was accepted, and on the Wednesday following the knot was tied in time, as the bridgeroom insis ted, for the bride to go to her new home and prepare his dinner.

Mr. Jolui Staton informs us that he lias his houses Well arranged for saving ice and is only waiting for a good freeze to lay in bis supply. Racing and Horse-Breeding. . Mit. Editor: What has become of our Tar River Jockey Club V Is it not time that they were advertising their Spring races., or has it gone the way of all other j ttigecomlie enterprises ? e are certainly in need of such a Club and, if only per severed in for a few years, it would be the means of greatly improving the horses of Edgecombe and Eastern North Carolina. It has long been considered that the only way in which the horse can be developed through successive stages of improvement to comparative perfection is by testing his spee l for prizes, regularly offered to the produce of each vear. In this way only can the flower of the year le known after which, by breeding the best to the best suc cessively, a certain improved developement can be secured. This has leen the prac tice from the time of the ' Arab ' down to the days of the Godolphin Arabian and his descendants through brilliant genealogy which dazzles us with such names as those of Flying Childers, Eclips, Beeswings, Plempo and American Eelips. All of these, and indeed every sound race horse of average merit in cither England or Ameri ca, are far in advance in the way of speed to any horse the "Arab," ever owned. And yet the seeds of the " Arabs " were the ancestors of the race horse of the pres ent day. It was the racing for prizes during this long jeriod of generations wnicn enaoied us to constantly improve the fountain by breeding only from the winners and so distinctly is this known to be the fact that it may Ijc declared as in disputable that but for racing and race courses the present paragon of animals, known in England and America as the thorough-bred horse, would lc uncreated. Nay more the value of such an unregcnerr ated stock as would have been left to our agriculture fcnd our labor without his help would how an inferiority in the way of want of usefulness of full one half. If the practice of racing therefore, insti tuted by the earliest nations and continued by the most civilized modern States, shall have resulted in all this lenefit, there is not only no reason why horse racing should not be patronizad by "all the wholesome forces of society but every reason why it should be stimulated and encouraged. In fact it always has lcen patronized in all civilized countries, and by the lxst classes of Society except for a while by a certain class of religious " good society " in the North Eastern part of the United States. " This class of Society Avas the descendants of the pilgrim fathers who hated the cava liers, with whom horse racing was a favor ite sjwrt, and bequeathed to New England the idea that the horse of speed was almost an ungodly creature." Happily that prej udice is so far worn off that even New England clergymen now indite horse books and the modest maidens of that moral re gion are glad to lend the inspiration of their beauty to the Tournaments of those noble,honest creatures, which in themselves represent the very greatest of Gods kind nesses to man. Now Edgecombe stock of horses cer tainly needs improving, and it remains for you gentlemen of the Tar River Jockey Club to do it, and allow me to suggest the following for your consideration : that you open a sweep-stake of $10 Club, adding $100 for 3 year old, to be run for in the spring of each year, requirhig the colts to lie entered when yearlings. Hoping tliat your future meeting may continue to increase in attendance. I am, very Respecfully, No Member. Installation, I. O. O. F. The follow ing Officers of Edgecombe Lodge No. 50, I. O. O.

The appearance of the Enquirer-Southerner announces the fact that our goods, for the absence which we had to apologise two or three times, have at last come to hand. The outlay conse quent upon enlargement was perhaps more than an outsider would suppose, and the lal)or required to keep a form of this size filled with reading matter is considerable. Our county, however, is able to sustain such a paper and it is to its citizens at last that we must look for success. They must not only subscribe themselves but, if they can consistently uo so, recommend it to their neightxirs. The Lovejoy Scnooi.. We call the at tention of educators to the announcement of the beginning of the 55th session of this well known institution. Mr. Kingsbury, of the Sentinel, thus speaks of it : The Senior Principal, J. M. Love joy, Esq., is the Nestor of North Carolina teach ers, and one of the most eminent. The writer was one of his pupils, and learned more than twenty-five years ago to hold him in high regard. His joint principal, Mr. White, is a capable and faithful instructor. Mr. R. W. Love joy, who was taught by his father, is the Assistant. Tliis sc1kk1 has l(een of great service to the people of the State and deserves to be liberally sus tained. Another. Our modesty forbids our publishing all the good things that the press of the State has recently said of us, but compliments paid by such men as Messers. Englehard and Saunders, and Smgletary, f the Wilson Plaindealer, are not such as to be lightly esteemed. The Plaindealer says ; The consolidated Enquirer-Southerner came to hand last week. The two papers were lioth amongest the best weekly papers in the State, and we may reasonably expect that the industry and ability which built up the Enquirer so speedily will under the improved auspices of the consolidation secure a better paper than either of the seperate originals. A New Book. Mr. Jas. II. Enniss, of Raleigh, has now in press and hopes soon to present to the public, a farm Book, for the use of Justices, County officers, Admin istrators, Executors, Guardians and busi ness men generally. The book is prepared by Quent. Busbce, Esq., for which pur pose perhaps a better lawyer could not be- foimd in the state, and contains agreements, powers of attorney, mortgages, wills and in short all the legal forms in common use in occordance with our laws. Notice. There will be a meeting of the Tar River Jockey Club, at Runnymede Park, on Friday, the 23rd inst : All members are requested to attend. BtLsiness arrange ments of importance to be considered and preparations made for a Spring meeting. Refreshments furnished to members of the Club. Bv order of President. H. C. Bourne, Sect'y. TnE "Gcaxahaxi " Gcaxo. We take the following from the Raleigh News. The above is the name of a new fertil izer, a four-column advertisement of which will be found in the News this morning. From what we know personally of Col. Wm. R. Griffith, the General Manager of the Company, and from the high reputa tion of the Professors that have analyzed the Guanahani, we have no hesitation in endorsing both the Company and the ferti lizer. The following letter from Prof. Wm. C. Kerr is a hearty and strong en dorsement : Raleigh, N. C, Jan 7, 1874. Wm. R. Griffith, Esg., General Agent Guanahani Guano Company, Petersburg, Va. Dear Sir : Doctor F. A. Genth, whose analysis of the Guanahani Guanno you have shown me is Chemical Minerologist to the Geolical Survey and has no superior as a Chemist. I have no hesitation in endors ing any analysis from his laboratory. And I think the analysis justifies his statement that the substance examined by him is a VALUABLE MANURE. From his report and that of Prof Wilson, it is evidently a true Gcaso, both in origin and composition, and its action on crops siv be expected to be the same in kind and in degree proportioned to its rela tive per centage of the valuable ingredients. Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia and Potash, that of the first being unusually high. Yours truly, W. C. Kerr, State Geologist. We copy the following concerning this new fertilizer from the editorial columns of the Petersburg Daily News of the 3rd inst : . "The Guanahani Guano. At such a time as the present, when economy is im perative among all classes and in every department of life, the merits of the "Guanahani Guano," advertised in our columns this morning, cannot fail to attract the instant attention of farmers in all parts of the country. Not only does it cost nearly one-third less than the l)est known fertilizers now in use, but it is specially worthyof note that where tried by practical farmers along side of these, it has produced results always equally as good, and in not a few instances even better. As regards its constituent parts, the analyses of two of the most eminent chemists in this country, both well known to all dealers in guano, go to prove that this guano possesses elements in combination distinctly superior to any single fertilizer now in the market. Owing to the high price of pure Chincha Island guano, farmers, to our own know ledge, have been compelled largely to manipulate their own feroilizers, but the comparative cheap ness of the " Guanahani" at once renders this unnecessary. Am monia from nitric acid (nitrate ammonia) is, as is well known, the most available form of nitrogen known to agricultural chemistry, and this is possessed by this fertilizer, as will le seen froia the analysis, to a very noteworthy degree. The other form of nitrogen in it seems due to the decomposition of animal matter, superior to the volatile salts of ammonia to le found to Peruvian guano. Its pho8phatic qualities are largely over and above anything to be found in man ipulated guanas, and these qualities, let it be specially ol (served, are all soluble in the soil. This guano also contains a large amoimt of potash and soda, such as is com monly found in the best manipulated ferti lizers, but over and alxve that, magnesia and other ingredients which enter into plant construction, and which cannot be found in themanipulated article. But the point specially worthy of the attention of the farmers in this section, and indeed throughout the whole South, where lands have been cropped for twenty-five or thirty years without sewing grasses, there by exhausting the necessary supply of vegetable mould, is the great humus power in this guano, resulting from its being unde comnosetl matter, which on becoming de composed furnishes the necessary humus, and produces results commensurate with "Those which arise from sowing grasses ; such as absorbing moisture from the atmos phere, carbonic acid and ammonia, supply ing the plant with moisture during time of drought. We have spoken thus at length of this guano because we deem it our duty to draw the special attention of our many readers in the country to a first-rate fertlizer which can be purchased at a comparatively small price. And furthermore, because it bids fair to redound greatly to the commercial interests of Petersburg. The Guanahani Company is managed entirely by our own citizens, and among its officers are to be found men of business, whose names are synonymous with spotless integrity and commercial success. It is hard to estimate the amoimt of money which the establishment of such a company must bring to our city, but it is scarcely too much to say that had it been in operation during the past year, between five and six hundred thousand dollars would have been kept at home. The General Agent of the Company is Col. W. R. Griffith, formerly of Balti more, a gentleman as well known by the success in this special trade, as he is to all by his energy and business capacity. We wish the nw Company unbounded success, and what is more we l(elieve they will win it." Temperance. A number of ladies, mostly from the country, united themselves with the council of Friends of Temperance at this place last Friday night ; also one or two gentlemen. There are now, we under stand, thirteen or fourteen lady memliera Last Friday night was also the time for the regular monthly lecture, which was deliv ered bv Orren Williams. Esq., and met with general commendation. Cfmmixo's Battery. The last issue of Our Livinz and Our Dead contained a sketch of the Cape Fear Light Artillery commanded by Capt. J. D. Cimiming now Cashier of the Tarl(oro Branch of the Bank of New Hanover. This battery did g((od service in the war for "States Rights' and was mentioned on too different occa sions in general orders for its gallantry and efficienev on the field. YorTHFO. CnrvALBT.
