ON the fourth day of July, 1584, the first Europeans landed on the coast of North Carolina. These were the crews of two vessels, fitted out for the purpose of making discoveries in the new world, under the auspices of Sir Walter Raleigh, and were commanded by Philip Armidas and Arthur Barlow. They landed on Roanoke Island, in what is now Currituck county.
The first permanent settlement in the State was made by a colony from Virginia, under Roger Green, in 1653, on the Roanoke and Chowan rivers.
In 1663, Charles II granted to Edward, Earl of Clarendon; George, Duke of Albemarle; William, Earl of Craven; John, Lord Berkeley; Anthony, Lord Ashley; Sir George Carteret, Sir John Colleton, and Sir William Berkeley, all the territory now embraced in the State of North Carolina, and west to the Pacific Ocean.
In 1693 the colony was divided into North and South Carolina.
North Carolina was governed by Governors appointed by the Lords Proprietors from 1663 to 1729, when the colony was surrendered to the crown.

WHEREAS, By an ordinance of the Convention, entitled "An Ordinance declaring what laws and ordinances are in force, and for other purposes," ratified on the 18th day of October, A. D., 1865, it is made the duty of the General Assembly to provide a scale of depreciation of the Confederate Currency from the time of its first issue to the end of the war, and it is further therein declared that "all executory
contracts, solvable in money, whether under seal or not, made after the depreciation of said currency before the 1st of May, 1865, and unfilled (except official bonds and penal bonds payable to the State) shall be deemed to have been made with the understanding that they were solvable in money of the said currency," subject, nevertheless, to evidence of different intent of the parties to the contract; therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That the following scale of depreciation be and the same is hereby adopted and established as the measure of value of one gold dollar in Confederate currency, for each month, and the fractional parts of the month of December, 1864, from the 1st day of November, 1861, to the 1st day of May, 1865, to wit:

Clerk of Senate.
There is no disease to which the human body is liable, so universal, so dreaded, or so generally fatal, as fever; it appears in different countries and climates, under different types and characters. In this country, where its annual return is looked for with anxiety and apprehension, it usually assumes the bilious type.
Another species of fever prevalent here, and which, it may be said, never leaves or subsides altogether, is the Autumnal Intermittent, or "Ague and Fever," which, if not so fatal, yet is very distressing. Its characters, effects, and consequences, are peculiar: to a diminished energy of the nervous system are to be ascribed the languor, lassitude, and general prostration which characterizes its invasion; to which might be added the derangement of the mixed functions of the liver, stomach, and intestinal canal. It is, therefore, quite manifest--in fact, it is well known, that Ague and Fever lay the basis of consumption of the lungs, chronic affection of the liver and spleen, dyspepsia, and not unfreqdently dropsy; and when once this state of the viscera becomes established, there is a constant tendency to relapse, even from slight causes, and when thus complicated with those constitutional diseases, their treatment and cure becomes more difficult.
Common sense teaches that the cure of Ague and Fever consists in shortening the duration of the paroxysm, and preventing its return. The first is to be accomplished by depleting the bowels, relaxing the skin, &c.; the second, by the prompt application of such medicines as are calculated to restore the deranged functions, and give healthy tone to the nervous system.
The TONIC MIXTURE now offered, possesses all the qualities requisite to effect the second indication. The first
dose generally checks the disease, and one bottle never fails to effect a cure: a healthy reaction takes place, the appetite is restored, the system becomes invigorated, and the patient begins to feel surprised at the rapid transition from a state of morbid suffering, to that of progressive recovery. These effects have been experienced by all who have used it, which could be shown by numerous testimonials, but the subjoined, from persons of known veracity, character, and respectability, are considered sufficient.
CHAS. DUFFY, M. D.Newbern. N. C.
January 13, 1837.
Sir:--I will certify to you that I had a case of Intermittent Fever in my family, (a little son of ten months old) and tried all the ordinary remedies to arrest it, but in vain. I was recommended to try your Tonic Mixture; accordingly I obtained some, and, to my astonishment, the first dose so checked it, that no chill and but a slight fever followed. I continued the medicine agreeable to the directions a few times, and it returned no more. The child is now in fine health. I also used it in two other cases in the neighborhood with equal success. I am induced to believe, if the Tonic Mixture is timely used, agreeably to the accompanying directions, that it comes the nearest to being a specific for the disease of anything I have ever known or seen administered.
June 24, 1837.
DR. DUFFY--Sir: I take this method of informing you that my wife and daughter have tried your Tonic Mixture, and it surpassed their most sanguine expectation. My daughter had been afflicted with Ague and Fever about two years, during which time she had the most severe shaking agues, but was perfectly cured in a few days by the use of your Mixture. They do, therefore, with the greatest confidence, recommend it to all who are distressed with the same disease, as a sovereign remedy.
CRANESVILLE, Craven county,
Core Creek, July 1, 1837.
DR. DUFFY--Sir: I certify that my daughter was ill for near twelve months, with Ague and Fever, and she was
perfectly cured by taking part of a bottle of your Tonic Mixture, and that the remainder of the bottle cured the child of a neighbor and friend, to whom I gave it.
July 1, 1837.
DEAR SIR:--I have used your Tonic Mixture in my family and in my establishment, and I have found it to be the best medicine I ever tried for the cure of Ague and Fever.
EAGLEFIELD, Craven county,
July 1st, 1837.
I certify that I have used Dr. Duffy's Tonic Mixture with success, and find it more efficacious, as a cure for Ague and Fever, than any medicine I have heretofore tried.
JOHN M. BRYAN.
July 6, 1837.
Sir: I have received complete relief from a severe and obstinate attack of Ague and Fever, by taking one bottle of your Tonic Mixture, and can recommend it as the best medicine I ever took for the disease.
WILLIAM J. WILLIAMS.
DR. DUFFY--Dear Sir: As the season is approaching, during which the people of this section of country are, to a great extent, afflicted with Ague and Fever, and as many persons in both town and country are in the habit of treating this disease without medical advice, I have thought it would be acceptable to you to have additional testimony in regard to the Tonic Mixture prepared by yourself for the disease named. The article prepared by you, being made from the prescription of a regular physician of great experience, and being designed for the cure of a particular disease, cannot, I think, be classed with the generality of patent medicines, many of which are prepared by unprofessional men, and profess to cure any and every disease, however opposite and diverse they may be in character. From what I have seen of your Tonic, and the general knowledge which I have derived from you of its ingredients, together with the great reputation which it possesses in those sections where it has been extensively used, I have no hesitation in giving it as my opinion that it is equal, if not superior,
to any tonic preparation now in use for the cure of Ague and Fever.
G. H. TAYLOR, M. D.Newbern, May 27, 1842.
MIDDLETON, N. C.,
Dec. 29, 1858.
R. N. DUFFY--Dear Sir: Enclosed I send you certificates testifying to the great success of Duffy's Tonic Mixture in the cure of Ague and Fever. Out of 4 dozen that I have sold, I have never heard any speak of it in any other than the highest terms.
There are many others here ready to testify to the great benefit derived from the use of this invaluable medicine, but thinking the number I sent you will be as many as you desire from our locality, I have not procured them.
ISRAEL B. WATSON.
MIDDLETON, Hyde County, N. C.
DR. DUFFY--Dear Sir: During the past fall I had occasion to use your Tonic Mixture in eight cases of Fever and Ague, (and some of them very stubborn ones,) I found it a certain cure in every case, and feel warranted in saying it is undoubtedly the best medicine for this miserable disease, that I have ever seen or used. Hoping you will keep an agency here all the while for its sale, so that we can get it when needed, I subscribe myself,

MR. J. B. WATSON--Dear Sir: You will please send me two more bottles of Dr. Duffy's Tonic Mixture: The first bottle I purchased from you gave entire satisfaction, not only with myself, but several of my neighbors, who were troubled with the Chills and Fevers. I believe it is the best Ague and Fever medicine ever offered to the public.
EDW. L. BLACKWELL.
KINSTON, Lenoir county,
March 31, 1859.
I certify that I have used Dr. Duffy's Tonic Mixture in my family with success, and that my little daughter was cured of Chills and Fever by the use of the mixture, and that I am satisfied beyond doubt that it is an excellent medicine for Ague and Fever.

DR. DUFFY--Dear Sir: I have used your Tonic Mixture in my family, and found it to be the best medicine I ever tried for Ague and Fever.
JOHN R. M'COTLER.
BAY RIVER, Craven Co., N. C.,
April 10, 1859.
DR. DUFFY--Dear Sir: I do not think there has been a medicine offered for sale in this community which has given more general satisfaction than your Tonic Mixture. All who have tried it are well pleased with its effect, and I do not hesitate to say that it has saved the people here many a dollar that would have been spent in doctor's bills. I have had some sickness in my family, and have had better success by the use of your Tonic Mixture, and much less expense than many who have called in doctors. I believe it to be a great medicine for what it is recommended.

DR. DUFFY--Dear Sir: I have used your Tonic Mixture for the cure of Ague and Fever with success in my family, and have found it to be more efficacious, as a cure, than any medicine I ever used. I think it needs no recommendation; give it only a fair trial, and it will speak for itself.
BAY RIVER, Craven Co., N. C.,
April 12, 1859.
DR. DUFFY--Dear Sir: I am highly pleased with your valuable Tonic Mixture for what it is recommended; and from personal experience, I have found it most admirably adapted to the disease of our climate. I wish to keep a supply of it constantly in my family.

RUTHERFORDTON, N. C.,
Nov. 4, 1865.
Having contracted, while in the service, in the summer of '64, Fever and Ague, which preyed vigorously upon my system until the middle of fall, at which time I effected a partial cure, shortly afterwards I received a serious wound, and returned home and spent the winter, and when spring opened the disease returned again more obstinately than ever. Many remedies were prescribed, of which I availed
J. W. DAVIS.
Two large tablespoonfuls or half a wine glassful, to be taken at the subsidence of the fever, and repeated every fourth hour. On the succeeding days to be taken an hour before breakfast, two hours before dinner, and about 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
For persons between ten and fifteen years old, the dose is a table spoonful. For those between five and ten, a desert spoonful; those under that age, a teaspoonful.
Freedom of the bowels is in all cases a primary object. Any interruption in the intestinal functions should therefore be previously attended to, for which purpose DR. DUFFY'S ANTI-BILLIOUS PILLS are recommended, and will be found an effectual remedy.

Revenue Stamps may be used indiscriminately upon any of the matters or things enumerated in schedule B, except proprietary and playing card stamps, for which a special use has been provided.
Postage stamps cannot be used in payment of the duty chargeable on instruments.
It is the duty of the maker of an instrument to affix and
cancel the stamp thereon. If he neglects to do so, the party for whom it is made, may stamp it before it is used; and if used after the 30th of July, 1864, and used without a stamp, it cannot afterwards be effectually stamped. Any failure upon the part of the maker of an instrument to appropriately stamp it, renders him liable to a penalty of two hundred dollars.
Suits are commenced in many States by other process than writ, viz: summons, warrants, publication, petition, &c., in which case these, as the original process, severally require stamps.
Writs of scira facias are subject to stamp duty as original processes.
The jurat of an affidavit, taken before a Justice of the Peace, Notary Public, or other officer duly authorized to take affidavits, is held to be a certificate, and is subject to a stamp duty of five cents, except when taken in suits of legal proceedings.
Certificates of loan in which there shall appear any printed or written evidence of an amount of money to be paid on demand or at any time designated, are subject to stamp duty as Promisory Notes.
The assignment of a mortgage is subject to the same duty as that imposed upon the original instrument; that is to say for every sum of five hundred dollars, or any fractional part thereof, of the amount secured by the mortgage, at time of its assignment there must be affixed a stamp or stamps, denoting a duty of five cents.
When two or more persons join in the execution of an instrument, the stamps to which this instrument is liable under the law, may be affixed and cancelled by one of the parties.
In conveyance of real estate, the law provides that the stamp affixed must answer to the value of the estate on interest conveyed.
No stamp is required on any warrant of attorney accompanying a bond or note, when such bond or note has affixed thereto the stamp or stamps denoting the duty required, and whenever any bond or note is secured by mortgage, but one stamp duty is required on such papers, such stamp duty being the highest rates required for such instruments, or either of them. In such a case a note or memorandum of the value or denomination of the stamp affixed should be made upon the margin or in the acknowledgement of the instrument which is not stamped.

The Judge of the District Court of North Carolina is G. W. Brooks, District Attorney, D. H. Starbuck, Marshal, Daniel R. Goodloe.

It is a source of gratification to be able to announce to our friends and patrons that our efforts, with their assistance, to establish upon a permanent basis, a good, daily newspaper at this point, have met with a success really wonderful in view of the many difficulties against which we have had to contend.
THE DAILY UNION BANNER is now a fixed institution, enjoying a circulation, and a reputation as an advertising medium, unsurpassed and unequalled by any other paper published in Western Carolina. The advantages of our location, at the junction of the Western N. C. with the Central N. C. Railroad render our communication with the people and principal towns of the interior convenient and speedy.
We deem it unnecessary to offer any apology for the past or make any promise for the future. Suffice it to say, however, that the BANNER is an independent Journal, identified with no party or clique, and its past course shall be the best guaranty of its future devotion to the interest of the people and the country.
We have reduced our rates for advertising, which will prove quite a desideratum to our advertising patrons. Advertisements will, therefore, be inserted in the best style as heretofore, and at the following reduced
|1 square 1 day,||$ 1.00----||1 square 1 week,||$ 3.00|
|1 square 2 day,||1.50----||1 square 2 week,||5.00|
|1 square 3 day,||2.00----||1 square 2 week,||7.00|
|¼ colm'n 1 mo.,||15.00----||½ colm'n 1 mot'h||25.00|
|¼ colm'n 2 mo.,||23.00----||½ colm'n 2 mot'h||34.00|
|¼ colm'n 3 mo.,||30.00----||½ colm'n 3 mot'h||75.00|
