* Rev. James T. Pickett was Principal of the Edenton Academy from 1849 to 1854; the first five years of the school-life of the Editor of the Register was spent under his tutelage While Mr. Pickett was a strict disciplinarian yet he was kind and forbearing; teeing a close observer, every act of his pupils was carefully scrutinized; admonition and correction were administered only when duty required, always patient with those who were dull, and never failed to give credit and approbation when merited. Many of the writers' happiest days were spent under his care at the ``old Edenton Academy," they form a bright oasis in a life that has, in some respects, been a desert. We are glad to know that he is "still in the flesh on this side of the river." He is living near Morganton, N. C., (his host Office address). We give his address, as there are a few of his scholars living who would probably be glad to cheer his heart, in the evening of his life, with a letter expressive of their affection and gratitude. May he be spared, with all his faculties unimpaired for many ears to come. Men of his mild and stamp never cease to be useful in the world.'
