Eccentric Mode of Celebrating.

--A peculiar feature was introduced in the celebration of the Fourth at Tarboro', N. C. A rope was stretched across the street, on which were suspended three effigies, bearing the following inscriptions: ‘"Winfield Scott — The Traitor's Doom."’ ‘"Abe Lincoln — Somebody is Hurt — The Irrepressible Conflict Ended — The South Victorious."’ ‘"William H. Seward — The Higher Law has ascended." ’ At night the effigies were consumed in a bonfire.
