Sale of stocks and Honey.

--A sale of stocks gold, and bank notes was advertised to take place in this town on Saturday last. At the appointed hour a large crowd assembled, and one $1,000 North Carolina bond, old 6 per cent was knocked down at $6,000; one 8 per cent $500 N. C. bond, $1,600; $500 in gold brought $19.75 premium; $500 in sliver, $14 premiums $500 in South Carolina bank notes, $2.50 premium; $500 in North Carolina bank notes $3.25 premium; $500 in North Carolina Treasury notes, fundable, $1.50 premium. This shows a decline, although the person who owned it bid on it himself to run it up — a practice which ought to be discountenanced by all fair dealers.--The sale was stopped without offering all that was advertised; in fact, it is doubtful whether anything was actually sold except the North Carolina treasury notes-- Charlotte (N. C.) Democrat.
