On making this change the edi tor make the following announcement, which we copy, as requested, with pleasure, at the same time commending the Olive Branch to the patronage of the public: To Our exchanges and Patrons.—The name of our paper is changed. We ask for a kind and candid review of our columns, convinced that they contain much that will interest anil profit every worthy reader. In them will be found nothing to * itiate the taste or the feelings, but much that will elevate, instruct and refine. They will furnish first class selections froiii other periodicals of the bfghesr stand ing ; fresh and timely original arriclcs, on moral and religious subjects ; news from the churches all over the world ; items of news, rare, racy and refreshing, about varied enterprises and interests. both domestic and foreign ; personal mentioning* about friends and stran-gers ; readings lor the Home Circle, lor the children and youth &<•., &e,— While loyal to the" doctrines ol the Methodist Church, the papei will evince not only courtesy butchristian charity towards all sister denominations. The 0Kre Branch is not a church paper so much as a catholic religious paper, seeking to lead all who will read it to a better understanding of the religion of the blessed Savior and to more devo-tion and a higher experience in the things of the Spirit. We invite our exchanges to insert this notice with our terms—$1 per year, semi monthly; and we solicit the kindly help of our pa trons.—Give us a fresh start and we will do you and others good. From the Sentinel. THE BRAGG COMMITTEE IX-VESTIGATIOX- PROFLIGACY AND CORRUPTION. There never was a more profligate and corrupt administration of govern-ment than is to be fonnd in North Car olina, at the presen'. time. The Chief Executive does not hesitate to bestow his patronage, and his couutenauce, and give his friendship and assistance to men, not only convicted, and self-convicted, but self confessed villians. An honest, noble Governor may hal low a whole people, and elevate all who live in his time and nndcr his ad ministration. What North Carolinian, in these degenerate days, does not feel proud that he lived in the times anil under the administration of such men as Morebead, Graham, Bragg, Manly Reid, however he may have differed with them politically. Who would hesitate to turn to these for aid and advice against false friends orojieii en-emies of the State t Their virtues were ample guarantees for the faithful performance of their duties. Who does not feel that the whole people have suffered degradation un der the profligacy and corruption of this administration f If the people want still further evi deuce than they have yet had, of the profligacy and corruption of this ad ministration, it may be found in the testimony of B. 8. Guion, Esq., and Dr. Wm. E. Sloan, as copied from the report of the Bragg Committee. Mr. Guion, in the goodness of his heart, says he inferred so and so. Now we infer, from Dr. Sloan's own evi-dence, that he is a corrupt man. and that he was bought by George W. Swepson, who paid the money for him! Our further inference is that the Dr. could find employment under none but a corrupt administration. His contin-uance in office, after his confession of having taken a bribe of 820,000, is proof of the profligacy, baseness and corruption of the administration which continues him in its service. But to the evidence, that the people may see and be amazed at what men in high places can unblushinglv avow in regard to themselves. EALEIGH, March 11,1870. B. S.

We omit all that part of Dr. Sloan's evindeuee relating to the general dis-positiou and manipulation of the bonds of his road, and give ouly that part of it in which he acknowledges the accep-tance of a bribe of twenty bonds to GREENSBORO, N. C. THURSDAY, Hay 5.1870. WHAT THE RADICALS ARE DRIVING AT. It is said npnn the very best author-ity that Gen. Banks, of Massachusetts, declared at a late meeting of Radical leaders, at a dinner table, that it was the true policy of the Radicals to em cease his opposition to the passage of ploy such measures of military rppres- 111 'Ml"'■''• aSS in the South as would drive the people there again to resistance. That this statement is true, no one enn doubt for a moment, since it has been asserted over and over again, if he dared to desire it. it would lie proved upon him by the oath of highly res pcetalilc members of the present Con- Kress. As. additional proof of the anxiety of the radicals to force the South into some sort of resistance, we need but refer to the si>eccb, the villain-ously slanderous speech of Senator Mor-ton, of Indiana, and others of his party. Indeed the notorious .1. W. Forney declares that Senator Morton's speeeh is the Keyttote of the approaching fall campaign. Hence we hear the Sta/i dartl calling on its deluded followers Question of the Commission.—Please look over the Treasurer's statement again aud inform the Commission what, if anything, you may know in regard to the disposal of the State bonds charged thereupon, or of their proceeds, including in such informa tion what, if anything, you may have beard .said by any person, and whom, as to hm transactions with said bonds or proceeds f You are aware of the purpose for which the Commission was raised : give us any information which you may have that may aid us in our investigation. Answer.—I have looked over the statements, and say that I know noth-ing, of my own knowledge, except that Mr. A. .1. Jones, President of the Wes-tern Railroad Company, told me du-ring the Fall or Winter that ho still had all of his bonds except fifty or six-ty ; and also, that having successfully opposed the passage of the bill making to make haste and furnish it with all an appropriation for the Atlantic, Ten- the outrages that have been per[>ctrated nessee and Ohio Railroad Compauy, against the truly loyal citizens of this upon the ground that its gauge fflve a.„. a- -, ■■ , .. feet) differed from the other North bar a,tat<\ S,m,,ar calls f" ,na,,c ,or s:ra olina Roads. After the defeat of the. u,ar documents in all the Southern bill. I was approached by Mr. George States. Aud it is dear what they niny ^y. Swepson, and offered by him forty lack to get to meet the demand made of the bonds that might lie issued for upon them by their party, they will not be slow to manufacture for that purpose. False and infamous as are their oft-repeated litest, it should be remembered it was by propagating the most infamous slanders on record has been so since July 1807 said Company, for withdrawal of my opposition. I declined to do so, sta-ting that the gauge was my main ob-jection ; he thereupon offered to con-form the gauge to that usual in North Carolina, and also to give the forty bonds, if 1 would withdraw objection. I told him that if he would conform against yte South, that they managed the gauge to the gauge of the North to get up the late rebellion, and if Carolina Railroad Company, I would (i).IK!rilI >saIlks ,..,„ lmV(1 his .- take twentv ol the bonds; thereupon tu ,, . . . ., »' the bill was passed. During the last th,'v wo",,, ',orH,st "' the same good Fall Mr. Swepson handed me twenty °™ wav fo voxi oppress, degrade and of such bonds; they were worthless lie upon the people ol the South until then as they could not lie placed on they force them again into rebellion.- the Stock Hoard, and are worthless »,,,. ~ ■ ... ■ .. . , .. Still. I have them vet in inv posses- ™ (;e"'ral Ita,,ks ,h,nks tbe ,nu' sion. I do do not know from whom P°,IC.V '<'>• his party to pursue. Hence Mr. Swepson procured them; I know we see their friend Bullock daring by general report of the suit brought to invade the Senate chamber and by kchoe against that Company but tl,cn.with tll(! boil(ls of th(, St;ltc „,. hate heard nothing special in regard „ ... thereto.

A man who was inquir-ing for a farm was referred to the written notice. He replied, " Icau't buy land at a fair price from any man who advertises in that way." He'll steal the fence, the pump handle and the barn doors, before he gives pos-sesion." An old bachelor thinks the trains of ladies' dresses infernal machines from the fact that a blowing up took place directly after ho had put his foot on one. Coldwater, Michigan, has three dies who are studyiug law. la-te get up some nail uozen rows more to serve as an excuse for refus-ing to admit Georgia, till after the elections that come off in most of the States North of ns. this fall. In addition to the above and thousands of other facts.that might readily bead duced, to substantiate the statement, that it is the deliberate and fixed pnr-pose of the leading Radicals to get up and propagate rows and blood shed, as the best means, that they can adopt to euable them to cany the next elec-tions— no matter what inay be the re-sult to the country hereafter, we need but attention to the following article taken from the last Richmond Dispatch .- An Insult and an Outrage.—We an-nounced the other day the names of newlyappointed postmasters at Char-lottstille and the University of Vir-ginia. The one appointed at the Uni-versity, where there are hundreds of excitable young men, is a negro. The one appointed at Charlottsville. the Chronicles says, the people would wil-tangly exchange for the negro. These appointments were mode for the sole purpose of outraging the feelings of the jieople. The Chronicle speaks of one of the men as " notoriously disrep-utable," and of both of them as incom Iietent and unreliable. That paper says: "These appointments constitute one of the greatest of the manv outrages that have lieen perpetrated by the Radicals. There can bo absolutely no object in making them, except to out-rage the feelings and aggravate the passions of Southern men, no doubt with the hope that it may possibly pro-duce an indignant outburst that will afford capital to the Radicals at the North, and give the Government an excuse for quartering soldiers in Vir-ginia, and, if possible, remitting tho State again to a territorial condition The Postmaster-General must have known very well the character of these men before he made the appointments, (if, indeed, he has made them, which we hope wil! prove to be a mistake,) and his course can therefore be attri-buted to nothing but malice afore-thought. We cannot see. therefore, that any remonstrance from the Con-servative citizens of Charlottsville can do any good." An this is the party whose battle cry in the last Presidential election was •• Ut us have Peace,' Universal amnesty antl manhoml suffrage'. Was there ever such hyjiocracy and falsehood liefore seen on this planet f If so we should like to know where and bv whom it was done. rNI'KECKDENTED IMITKEXCK. General Spinner has written a letter to II II. Wilson, of New York, in reply to one in re-gard to tbe landing bill and the attiiudo to-ward) the aaate by the national banks. In speaking of the arroganoe •■( the national batiks, GeneralSpiiinei'MTaacase lately came to bis notice where a board of bank directors passed resolutions and will a copy of Use sane to tho member of Congren Iron tin district in which their bank is located, Instructing him to vote agaiaat the fonding bill. In re-gard in a resumption Df specie Daynwnts,Gen. Spinner thinks lhat the Government i Id tit any time arrange matters so as to lie able to' rosome specie payments iu ninety days arere II not foritsenilorseiuentof the national bank notes; but lhe banks are not prepared, and Ibey manifest no disposition fo prepare them-selves fur an honest resumption ofspecie pay-ment*, and they will not until forced by Coii-gn- ss; henco his desire for tbe adoption of the pending funding bill. We know of nothing that shows so com-pletely at a single glance, not only the nan. oVaei but unbounded power ol the present na-tional banks in and over the members ofCon-gran Ibuu the above littlu inside. The right of lhe people thus to meet and instruct their representatives bas nut only boon called in i|Uf»tion. but is utlerly denied by many intelligent and worthy men of ull parties. let here we see the I'resideni and directors of one of the National Hanks actually pass-ing resolutions Mid instructing lhe members of Congress from their district, to vote against the funding bill. And what this bank has done boldly, all the others do bv <>r l!n w< innuendo) •■. eals. have the authority of Ben Butler for saying thai three foarthi of tbe members of the House of Itepreseiitatives, are in some way nr other connected with the national banks as oncers or stockholder*. And from ibis source conies hundreds of thoitaauda of dollars to aid tbe Repablk-au party to oarry tbe chili..ns. Hence 11 is tho banks foul their power and can afford to speak out bald-ly and give instructions lo the lueiiibei.- o| ( uiigress, and if they do nut obey them, the banks know thai ibey can defeat them and their party. Consequently the parly in power arc compelled i„ obey the banks and legislate an directed by then.

Takeagood sized potato with a smooth skin;ant out nose, eyes and mouth : twist curled horsehair into the shape ofa wig and whiskers or moustache,and fasten on with pins; then make « hole for the forefinger to go into : this gives the head a throa.t Wrap a bit of cloth a handkerchief Of what-not .round the baud, arranging one corner of it around the thumb, and another around thesftconri finger. Then yon have a little man with hands and arms capable of bowing and moving his head. .Make a screen, let lour or five youngsters be behiiid it, each with their potato characters, and as they say the wordsof thechargdo, burlesque tragedy let these potato men pet form. It is capital fun. and beats I'uuch and Judy out of the field.— Punch andJudy is a brutal performance tit best. Potato Men have amiable dispositions. Thai are generally friends, fond of shakjng hands, embrae ing and nodding their heads cordially at each other. They also have a thoughtful way of rubbing their fore heads that is very funny. Sometimes they light, I admit, but they don't bang each other all the time as Punch and Judy. Try them, mmwmowmmmmk%%%%%o%owmoowo%mmm MORE ABOUT THE SWAMP LANDS. It will be recollected that the/ Gov ernor. in his editorial in tho Standard, defending the sale of the Swamp Land* in the eastern part of the State, which belong to tbe School Fund, admits that 100,000 acres of the lands are ca-pable of cultivation, that is, he says that there are 300,000 acres in all, about -'00,000 of which are •' daily cov ered with tide water and can only be reclaimed at great exjiense." Ofcourse this means that the remaining 100,000 are not thus daily covered with tide water, nor subject to the expense of reclaiming them, more than is common to other uncleared lands. Now, suppose the company never at-tempt to do anything with 200,000,but operate only with the 100,000. If is a fact well known that a great part of this land is worth not ouly fire dollars per acre, but twenty-fire '; but ■ as the Company, it is understood, is selling it at five, we will allude to it at that price, the individual purchasers get-ting the benefit of all that it may be worth above that price, which we are perfectly willing ant! glad they should do. The Governor, or the writer of the editorial in the Standard, whom we take to l>e. the (lovemor, says, '• fifty families, with cattle and farming uten sils, have settled on these lands;" (thai had already settled on it before the Governor and his Board sold it,) '• and fifty others have been added to the. numbs"." We think it probable this last tiltv had also settled there liefore the sale. Thus we see. from the statement ol the Governor, or of his organ, which i.s the same tliing.that one hundred families have already purcbaaed homesteads on these lauds and settled on them. We copy the following in regard to this settlement, from the Eastern In tdligrmrr, of the 13th iust.: " Two hundred more families will,by arrange-ment of the Company, soon lie shipped to the same point, and from time to time, new accessions will bo made to the colony df industrious, enterprising, intelligent laborers." The InMligen <rr says,-•• two hundred more families will soon be shipped to the same point," which, with the one hundred mention ed by the Governor, makes three hun-dred families that have already set tied or made arraiijiemeiits to settle on these lands sold by the State. We have heretofore stated, and we did it upon what we conceived to bo good authority, and it has not been denied by the Standard, that each of these families purchased of the " Hyde Park Settlement," loo acres of land at £5 per acre. It is likely some of them will buy move, but we will take it at the minimum ; and now let's see how the matter stands so for: The Governor and his Board sold 300,000 acres of land for 850,000. The Company has already within less than ;i month sold to ,'!(H1 families 100 acres each, making 30,000 acres, at. $5 per acre, amounting to *1.">0,000. Thus we see that laud which the Governor says could not he sold for more than fifty thousand dollars, and for which sum he accordingly sold it, the private purchasers have- already sold 30,000 for three times as moeh as the.x paid for the whole, iind have seventy thous and acres Of good land and two hun-dred thousand acres of that which tho Governor says tide overflows, still left. Suppose they sell the remaining 70,000 acres of the good land at the same rate, (which from their snecoss already, there is no doubt they will do.) and they will realise five hundred thousand dollars, or a net profit <>(/our hundred and fifty thousand dollars, anil still the -.■oo.oini acres remains, which, the Governor himself, or his organ, admits may lie reclaimed,although "at great expense.1' We call the attention of the ]>coplc of North Carolina to this affair. We have not overstated the case, nor In-dulged in speculation; we have men tioned hit's, most of these tacts from tin-GOM-IIIOI himself, or his organ ; if anythiug, we have underestimated, for WO think it probable the Company will sell much of the land at a higher price than five dollars per acre1. Hut OD the basis laid down above it will be seen that the Governor and Hoard of Public Instruction, have thrown ftirai/. or given away,/our hundred and fitly tlitiusitiid dollars <</' Ut Common School fund of the State, that ought to be used for the benefit of the poor children of the State who are growing up without educational nullities. And while this money is thus thrown away ou the one hand, the Radical Legislature on the other, lays a tax of X\ cents ou the hundred dollars of properly, for Common Schools. We don't object to this tax—the people will gladly psj it: but we can gee no use of throwing away near half a mil-lion of dollars to speculators, and then turn round and tax the people to re-place it. Sor do we object to tbe sale of the hinds and their settlement by "indus-trious, enterprising and intelligent la borers :" we are glad to see them come to the State, and it could possibly bo no disadvantage to them, if they paid the price of their lands towards the education of their own children, in stead of puttiny ii in the pockets of speculators and capitalists. Wo again call on the people to re-member this transaction ol the Gov-ernor and Board of Education. If he <" did ii for a portion of the profits he is inexcusable, nay, criminal; if he did it for nothing, he i.s not less so.—Sen. call the reader's careful discover where they fiy to. We frequently hear ofufiight of steps, but we have never yet been able to Another Hem for the Standard re-cord.— At the recent term of Johnston county SujieriorCourtjGreen Watsoi ,i colored member of the Governor's league, was tried ami convicted for a brutal assault with intent to commit a rape on Miss Matilda Wads. The Judge sentenced bin) to the very shortest term the law allows,five years. which Wat sou made a great deal shorter by breaking jail and escaping to the enjoyment of freedom and the pursuit ol pleasure again. What with pardons and escapes, about half of the convicts of the State avoid the punishment of their crimes. !,
