Doziek's Case. The Governor has par

receiving stolen goods. The facts are too
recent to need rehearse!, and the comnwn-
ity remembers the indignation felt at the
rediculously small punishment put upon
him by Judge Moore. We understand the
Gov. based his pardon upon the bad health
of the criminal ; we know nothing of this
or how far it should control his action, but
it looks very much like an outrage upon
our community and an insult to justice.

West." This work has been placed on
our table by Messrs. Lee, Sbepard &
Dillingham, New York, through Mr. H.
M. Williams, Bookseller and Stationer,
Tarboro. The book is a history of a New
York boot-black who was persuaded to
leave the haunts of the metropolis and was
carried to farm lands of one of the Wes
tern states by a benevolent agency organ
ized for tliat purpose, and is a pleasantly
told story of the reward that will follow
well directed industry when united with
integrity. The book avalds a large amount
of the cant usually found in works of this
kind while, we think, it bases integrity
where it should be, that is, upon a religious
principle. 44 Julius" would be a good
book for a boy 13 or 1-4 years of age to
read.
Platform. The following resolutions,
introduced by Edward Coningland, Esq.,
in the Democratic convention of Halifax,
might apply with equal force to this coun
ty: Resolved, That, in the opinion of this
meeting, the nomination of a Conservative
candidate to represent this District In the
next Congress of the United Stales is not
required by the interests of the Conserva
tive party and we respectfully recommend
that no such nomination be made.
Resolved, That we, also, deem it inex
pedient to nominate county candidates du
ring the pending canvass.
Resolved, That in Stephen D. Pool we
recognize a gentleman well fitted for the
office of Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion for the State. One who, if elected,
will faithfully administer the law without
regard to race, color or previous condition,
and that we will give him an ardent sup
port. On motion it was decided to appoint
three committeemen, for each township, to
be under the direction and supervision of
the members of the County Executive
Committee, for each township, said com
mittee to be appointed by such member of
the County Executive committee who will
be, 'ex officio,' Chairman of the township
Committee.

Native Talent. We take the follow
ing complimentary notice of Miss Mollie
Bell, of Washington, sister of Mr. J. H.
Bell of our town, from the Raleigh News
of the 10th inst.
We saw at the Yarborough House yes
terday several specimens of crayon draw
ings, representing statuary work of some
of the most renowned sculptors of the old
world, executed by Miss Mollie Bell, of
Washington, N. C. They have been close
ly inspected by hundreds, and the univer
sal opinion is, that they are truly gems of
art, and could only have been executed by
one possessing a most extraordinary talent,
When quite a child, only twelve years ol
age, Miss Bell formed from white clay, a
beautiful piece of statuary, representing a
sleeping infant, which is now in her moth
er's possession, und treasured beyond a
price.
Judge Reade of the Supreme Court, ob

rewarded with medals that represented a
create r degree of yroficieney than young
ladies who had been in the Institute for
five rears. Miss Dell is now in the city, a
sruest of Judge Reade and lady at the Yar-
boro House, and though quite young, (yet

suant to a call by the Ex-Sea etary,
the young men .of Tarboro held a meeting
oo. .Monday evening last for the purpose of
rfr&ganizing the Stonewall Base Ball Club.
Tii meeting was, oq motion, called to
order by making Jno. W. Cotton, Esq.,
temporary chairman and requesting Mr.
H. Irwin Clark to act as Secretary. The
chair then called npou Mr. Walter P.
Williamson to state the object of the meet
ing, after which those present desiring to
connect themselves with the club were re
quested to come forward and enroll their
names as members. . Twenty-six respond
ed. Nominations for permanent officers
being in order, the following gentlemen
were respectively nominated, and, upon
motion of Mr. Williamson, elected 1y ac
clamation. President Jos. Blount Cheshire, Jr.
Vice-President Jno. W. Cotton.
Secretary H. Irwin Clark.
Treasurer F. Shep. Royster.
Captain Frank & Baker.
The President on taking the chair thank
ed the members in a few courteous and ap
propriate remarks for the honor they had
conferred upon him. An executive com
mittee consisting of the Vice President and
Messrs. T. P. Cheshire and Frank Nash
was-appointed. - Also on motion the Presi
dent: appointed a committee of three to
draw up a code of By-Laws for the gov
ernment of the club to be submitted at its
next meeting for ratification. Messrs.
Williamson, ' Cotton and Powell were
named as . the committee, and on notice
the President was included. The execu
tive committee was instructed to procure
forthwith a full supply of balls, IwU and
other accoutrements. It seems to be the
intention of the club to take such steps
immediately as will enable it to success
fully contend for the championship of
East Carolina. Judging from the material
they have out of which to select 44 a first
nine," no doubt they will soon prove them
selves the champions But only of the East
but of the whole State.

For the Enquirer-Southerner.
la Alcohol Food ?
Ma. Foitob : In your notice of my
lecture your town, you seem to think
my position an extreme one, which cannot
be sustained. I do not purpose to argue
the question now, as it would perhaps,
consume more time and space tnan you
would be willing to devote to its discus
sion ; but 1 will at some tuture tune, (u.
V.) deliver a second lecture in Tarboro' on
the question which heads this article.
At present I will only remark that 1 natly
deny that alcohol is food, in any proper
acceptation ' of the term ; and that your
position, held in common by some others,
takes all the wind out of your temperance
sails, and concedes all that the opposition
demands. If it be food to a certain extent,
and beyond that point a poison, where
shall we fix the boundary line ? and who
shall nxit?
Pure alcohol is not used as a beverage
by any one, and different liquors possess
it m different decrees. Its chemical ele
ments are found in many .other substances,
not fit for food any more than gun pow
der is, : Alcohol is a poison, and can not
be safely used except as a medicine, or as
other poisons are used.
The Journal of Chemistry (Boston ) says :
44 Alcohol acts lnharmomously with vital
And aa f cod is that which
f T rf,,' Btrenirthens the svs-
process ia the animal organiani. , This is
feeds, nourishes and strengthens the sys
tem, whatever 44 acts inharmoniously w ith
the vital processes, cannot be classed with
food, though it be composed of hydrogen,
oxygen and carbon. Food ' makes blood,
flesh, bones, nerves, brain, ex.; but
alcohol destroys these instead of build
ms them up ; and hence is not food.
But I did not design to argue this ques
tion now, and will close by saying, there
is no middle ground on this question ; and
if temperance men expect to succeed in

Decline. We decline at this t.me a dis
cussmmj with Dr. Walsh as to t he properties
of alcohol, but will simply make one cor
rection. The Dr. seems to think that we
considered alcohol f.od leau.-eit was com
posed of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen.
We say that its composition is prima facie
evidence, but of course we acknowledge
the principle of isomerism in chemistry and
admit that ibis evidence is subject to n

T.vn River Navigation Com pan v. The
proceedings of the meeting of the Stock
holders of this company will be found else
where. It will doubtless lie a source of
gratification to n number of our readers to
see that the Company has lieen lorn under
such favorable auspices. The President
and Board of Directors are business men of
energy and integrity and have goue to work
to push their enterprise to a completion.
This enterprise should elicit the interest
not only of the farmers along the banks of
the Tar, but also of our merchants and
public spirited men generally. Competi
tion and various modes of transportation
not only afford a direct profit to the ship
per, hut materially benefit the town pos
sessing them by increasing its popularity as
a shippiug point. The matter of cheap
transportation is therefore a consideration
with every citizen of Tarboro, and every
enterprise looking to such a result should
meet their support and encouragement.
We have heretofore refrained from en
couraging this enterprise, because we were
under the impression that more powerful
corpcrati0118 would prevent au outtide
connection wit- it, and consequently ren

private sail vessels.
A Malicious Covplimext. We were
highly flattered by the late meeting of
the Radical convention, and claim it a
special compliment as it is the only instance
of the kind doubtless in the State. The
compliment was this : Among the resolu
tions setting forth the views of the conven
tion on various subjects, embodying, as it
were, the party platform for this county,
was one devoted expressly to the denuncia
tion of the Enquirer-Southerner. We say
this is a high compliment, for we claim to
be the organ of the Democratic party of
Edgecombe and are happy to see that our
efforts have been so far appreciated by the
enemv as to cause them to do something
unprecedented in their hostility to us. R
is the heat evidence we could have that our
blows have lecn felt, and we would rest
content if we could lie assured that we
could always receive such a recognition
from the Rads.
Wc feel comfortable over the resolution
also, because we know it did not emanst :
from the colored people, against whom we
have said little and for whom we entertain
a kind sympathy, but from the petty malice
of a few whites whom, we think, we could
easily identify, did not our contempt for
their persons exceed that indulged for their
malicious and mean attack upon us.
Radicals. These things held a couveca-
tioa or convention at the Court House on
Saturday, and a couvcutiou it was. As
usual there was considerable diversity of
opinion, but as usual the respectable color
ed riortion of the meeting were put down
by 44 Mars Cage " and his gang. It would
seem that submission to this man had
ceased to be a virtue, even among Radicals,
but somehow he is allowed to pack the
convention ad libitum, and no one is fouud
with manliness enough to resist his usurpa
tion. If Taylor, Keech, Mac Mathewson,
Henry Cherry and a number of colored re
publicans from the country would put out
another ticket, they might yet break dow n
the McCabe ring. They have certainly
nothing to fear from the Democrats, for
they might divide the colored vote entirely
and the Democrats would then lie power
less. The only thing necessary is to have
some independence and defy the usurpation
of McCabe and his gang. l
It would lie uninteresting to our readers !
to give a general detail of the meeting, I
suffice it to say that McCabe had himself, j
Mabson and Buun nominated at once and
that there was a considerable diversity as
to the balance of the offices. The nomina
tions however resulted as follows : For the
Senate, W. P. Mabson; for the House,
Willis Bunn and W. T. Godwin (white) ;
Sheriff, Joseph Cobb ; Register, A. McCabe ;
Commissioners, Wiley Webb, Jolin Lancas
ter, Frank Due, James Norvillc and Jerry
Camper.
Resolutions.
A spoc;ai meeting of the Yeetrv of Cal-
yary Church, Tarboro, N. C, was called
by the Rector on the loth of June, to give
an expression of respect to the memory
of Mr. Russkl Ciiapmax, who departed
tbis life on June 7th, 1874.
Our departed brother had beeu a member
of this Church and the Secretary of this
Vestry for 31 yars, and for 24 years a
Warden of this Parish. He had always
the interest and prosperity of the Church
at heart ; and was faithful in the discharge
of every doty ; and obligation which was
upon him as a member of the Church of
Christ and of this Vestry.
The loss of one so long and so intimately
connected with the progress of this Parish,
cannot but awaken in our hearts emotions
of sympathy and sorrow, and while we ac
knowledge the wise Providence ot God in
taking him from amongst us, we also own
the Divine Goodness which has made him
for so many years a quiet and steady helper
in every effort to promote the good of the
Church and the spread of the truth of the
Gospel in this Parish.
Therefore, it is unanimously resolved, by
the Vestry, That in the death of our friend
and brother in Christ, we realize the loss
of a consistent, faithful and useful member
of the Church, whose unobtrusive and qmet
christian character commanded the respect
of this community, and insures our lasting
remembrance.
Resolved, That in the life of our depart
ed brother, in the christian patience and
resignation to the will of God with which
be bore the pains and weariness of a pro
tracted sickness, and in the peaceful and
willing spirit with which he departed out
of this world, we have a comfortable as
surance that he is delivered from all the
evils of this life, and has passed into the
rest and bliss of the Paradise of God.
Resolved, Tuat the proceedings of this
meeting be entered upon the record of the
acts of this Vestry as a lasting testimonial
of the high appreciation we have for the
memory of our departed brother.
Resolved, That a copy of these proceed
ings be published in the Churchman, and
the Enquirer-Southerner, and also a copy
be sent to the relatives of the deceased.
By order of the Vestry.
