Mr. Frank P. Gray had quite a noted arrival at his house on Sunday evening last—a handsome diminutive stranger, a beautiful and comely person, endowed with all the characteristics to eventually make a good democrat.  We congratulate him upon the pleasure attending the event and trust that sun shine and joy may forever light up the pathway of both, strewn with flowers, and hung at its termination with fruits to reward.


One evening last week a negro woman living on the farm of Mr. J. W. Shepherd near this place, gave her infant an over dose of laudanum, from the effects of which it died that night.  It is astonishing that more fatal results are not brought about by the reckless use of this drug, especially among children.  Too often it is administered to induce sleep, and keep the little one quiet, and as in this case a sleep never ending is the result.
