and declaim the endorsement which was
given in my name. Tor this purpose I
ask of the favor lo publrsh this cud.

influence had already determined that tlie
llev. J. CijUvid should be nofninated, and
that I wn? aiiified that- he would be
nominated,! andr that I cared jv-ery little
abotrt et king or getting thei iiooiiation
from a convention thus controlled. He
replied t4at Mr. Iteid was altogether unfit
fur the duties of this office by reason of
bis age, atd that he would . bring my
name forward n a candidate for the office.
I assented and did not again men t,ion the
(matter te bins until a few mometits before
the nomination was to le made. I then
went to bim and requested him to put my
i.ainc in nomination before the convention.
He replied that be would do po with
.pleasure ; that his delegation had agreed
lo vote for me, and that I ought to be
elected by scclaraation. Hq was etaud
iitg 4 n the floor for the purpose of put
ting my name in nomination,fwhen Judge
.Settle nominated Mr. lltid, and Mr. Car
vow moved to make the nomination by
acclamation. While the applause and
clapping of hands with which this Mas
received, was subsiding, Mr Buiringer
turned to ine as if to enquire what he

j;iie nothing for it." Upon this ho sec

If the convention had nominated a suit
able person for the office 4ne vvno s
vitpabh of doing something fqr education
in the Stntf, and vlo would be willing to
devote his time and energies jjto that and
in tiothinpf cle, I could have! nothing to
f-ay Against it ; but 1 am unwjUiiig to re
main before the public as approving the
nomination, while 1 know that the geu-
1o4iian nominated is totally tjTifk for the
position which he peeks, both by'reason
f hi great age aud his wanjt of educi
lion for the , work. Mr. leid,Jifter speud
itig nearly half a century asf an active
Winking minwter of the gospel, was pi ic
ed oil the retire d list many years' ago, be
eme he had become loo old to do t ho
vr.rk to .which he h.id ho6n Accustomed
through a long, valuable, and useful life.
And now in his second childhood, totter
iog upon the very verge of thifi grave, he
usdts the people of North 1'arolina to
f.Uce htm in one of the most important
departments of the State government a
position which requires the j labor of a
ttrong man, both physically and intellec
tually, and of ono who has been educated
for the purpose. His election) iray be of
dvmitagdto hitn, but it cannot poesibly
v, o( any advantage to the people of N.
f 'arolina or to the caise of education. H
ie is too old, as he himself says IiqA by
'ing on the retired list, for thai work to
which he was faithful and trua for a
greater number of years than ja large ma-
oniy of men are permitted (o live, theu
i is too old f.r a work a!ti)?eth.er new
and much more laborious thn the work
w lrch he left.
But my principal objection to the nom
ination s, that it was gotten ujrin Wash
ington City, several weeks! before the
convention met, and fa the product of a
Scheme to make the educational interests
f the tate, subservient to party purposes
And personal ends, as I will now proceed
The members of the pcncral assembly
at its last session were appealed to to revise
the school law and make provisiorr for
free school, npon the ground that educa
tion was not a party question but a great
popular interest. The legislature respond
ed promptly and Njiberally The fund
appropriated by the general assembly for
school purposes during the prcsentj-car
is large than Us erec been.nsed in Nortk
Carolina for thd support of free schools

judges to le the Lest we liavcl had 4u this

I may Cake occasion hereafter to ely
soidi-thing nioie upon this matter of o5
ciatpatroliage. For the present I will aj
thai Jlr-iRfeid, who a trnstee of tie
University agreed with Sejialer Pool tbjit
tLe 1'iiivrsity must be kept in the hanils
of the republican party exclusively. Tjio
Licotne ofj the University froju escheafs,
&c, is winyabout one thousand dnljariia
year. 3lk 11. W. Lafsiter, treasurer id
the ti u?tfe8 of the University, regularly
receives ajnd retains one thousand dtjllas
a year aa hiialary, besidesi incidental
and, trav4HinK expenses. , The'xlutieB if
the . officej are very light. I have atpl
, imi; b i w)lin l0 lmve th(Jm aiinexd,
to the dirties of the office which I bolt,
without aijy ompensatin whatever. The
attempt as made last January to reduce
Mr. Lassiter's salary as treasurer of the
University from one thousand to otie
hundred dollars, and when that failed,
then to five hundred dollars. The veil
era! aud reverend James C. Uetd stood by
' hi frienji" Lassittr upon that occasion
with his votes aud speeches. He carried
hiui sfe tlirougli, and; Mr. laster'0
salary remains one thousand dollars a
year Scpator Pool, llev. J. C.liid and
othef trudtee of the University, by re
taining the University in their own' binds
enable Mr. Uassiter to receive audi use
one thousand dollars a year, which the
creditors of the University ought, to have.
If they accomplished anything more, 1
have- not been able to discover it. The
nomination of Mr. Iteid was an endorse
ment of this, aud a rejection -of the offer
implied ii( the action of the general nSv
8embly, and the educational interest of
the State should be kept out, of party cou.
tests, and be supported by both parties.
I know he was notuinatcd, because he
stood; by Mi. Liesiter, aud reifused to nU
low his salary, as treasurer of tho Uni
versity, to jbe reduced from oiije thousand
to oife hui died dollars, and, because lie
refused to k'onsent to a reortrdnizalion of

Whei) I hoard the acclimations of
applaiisfa Jith which his nominal ion wtfi
icceivfd, I asked myself, what does this
ineany? It means simply thiit the cotif
ventipn which professes to represent eighty
thousand colored voters and 4 number of
white voterp has for the sake of gratifying
three or fur politicians, actuully sacrl
ficed j!hc lijkln'st interests olf the people
which it professes to represent. If
knowanyting well, it. is, tht it is ruirjj
ous t the jcausc'of cducalioit to, drag ij
into political party contents. A system
of popular education based upon the ido;i
that it is to be monopolized by ono party &
simplr impossible, and the attempt U
force inch a system is simply criminal. -4

JThis venerable Presbytery held its
semi-annual Sessions in Concord Church,
abont six miles west of Statesville, closing
pit Moffday evening last, after four days
asildaous labor. All the ministers were
preseut at the. meeting, and a goodly del
egation of Holing Elders. The most
interesting feature of this meeting was
tlr examination and licensure uf four
yqung men to preach the Gospel. These
young" brethren were examined on their
wfiole literary and theological course, and
the examination was thorough and pro
longed. They sustained the test admi
rably, showing that they had recrived a
thorough traming, both at College aud
Seminary. Their names are R. M. Tuttle,
J. W. RosebOro', B. G. Clifford, and W.
11. Davis the first from - Lenoir, the se
cond from Statesville, and the last two
from Salisbury. .Some of them have

If il chilli indeed prove ti) be the people's
Movement, then clear the track ; for the
storm will be cubliincty grand, and sweep
Jiuclc Scats. The late radical Conven
tion has snubbed, pretty cff-ctiially, the
new convert; to their pirty, in the mai
ler of bestowiug honors. Without ex
cepiion, we believe, all tho nominees
are of the original psnnel, and the
new converts, however respectable,
have been left out in the cold.
Among these we see Dr. R.imsav and
das. M. McCorkle. Etri . of our iniinedi- i
ale neighborhood, both of whom are gen
tlciuen of admitted ability. There are
others like them in different pats of
the State gentlemen whose names would
add dignity and strength to the party.
t certaiuly cannot be a very pleasant
reflection to these gentlemen person-
sonally to see themselves ignored by men
below theirgrade, norcrtii the verr hearti-I
ly endorse a party wlio display sa little
wisdom in their efforts to sustain an or
ganization notoriously deficient ia the
very element of strength which they make
a point m rejecting.
A Worse Feature. The respectable
new converts to radicalism, are no, only
kept on bach scats, but by the action of
the late radical Convention, ihey are
required to 0 bacVm their record. Take,
for example, the case of the Statcsrilh
American. What paper in North Caro
lina has denounced with more bitterness
W. W. Holden and his condnct as Gov-
truor, than the American 1 What-one
wore heartily . condemned be Jvirk-Hol j
den war on the neoole of this Statf t I
bat one more joyously approved th
fnipeachment of Holden ! All moderate
Republicans who occupied these posi
fiona are driven froax them by the
ponvention, which adopted resolutions
eulogising Holden, and endorsing his of
iBc'al record, and promising to Tpte ?tim
fa the future. This ii "the oykiudest
pat of all' the bitterest dose poor re
pentant peliticians are ever called on to
swallow. Jost imagine that yon see them
panged on back seats in the Convention:
he negroes, scallawags and : carpet bag.
gera jubilantly in front, com pound ingdiis
nauseoQs dose for" decent men seme
determined to swallow it if it kills
them ! Grant' privaU Secretary has
come all the way from Washington
to; administer it ; and with villainous
saalice drops into each man's enp an
extra tincture that fairly makes the eve
balls of the convert start from their sock

falfy suggest the name of this gcutleman
to the consideration of the Greensboro'
Convention in connection with the office
of-Superintendant of Public Instruction.
To say nothing of his admittedly fine
qualifications for the place, nothing for
the efficient dischaige ef its duties under
the appointment of Governor Caldwell
nothing for his high standing personally

ed to the Mine chair at the UniTer-itr of the
State; ad it has been often remarked" that fie
was the oy one of the new Professors aeaidst
whoin nothing could be alleged. He com
mands the confidence and respect of all who
know hnn ; and none take a deeper intern in
the caue of popular education. He was select
edby Gov. Caldwell to succeed Carpet-bae
Aaliley as Superintendent of Public lnMroe
tion, and as such was the author of the excel
lent School bill, passed almost unanimous!? by
the late Legislature. He has discharged the
duties of the office with great ability and fideli
ty, and it has been frequently said thnt of all
his apiiointraenfs Gov. Caldwell wasnuwt forto
nate in that of Pro. Mclver to the place he how
o worthily fills. He is a uwt laborious and
mdustrious man, and for a salary of $1,-00 per
forms in an acceptable manner all the duties for
which Aahley waa paid $,000 per annum. In
prtvaU live he is above reproach of the purest
morals and most unquestionable Integrity.
Yet, with all bit eminent qualifications and
ei vices, and his irreproachable character, he
waa not nominated by the Radical Convention
at Raleigh last week. Why was thin? Only

As the history of man ti the earth's crust
is divided into Ancient. Medieval and Mo

into three grand eras, the Paleozoic time, the
Mesozoie (middle), aud the Cenozoie, (re

six epochs or ages.
But I dw not propose to enter into the de
tails of the science any further than to show
how our blindness would put science ia the
Elace of Religion, whereas she is and should
e the handmaid of Religion; the study of
nature in each and every department; should
bring us intellectually Dearer to God, the
Great First Cause of all. Instead of this we
go baak one step aud stand exactly in our
knowledge, as il we had gone back to that
simple, yet inconceivably awfal ''In the Be
ginning."' An apple falls, we call it gravi
tation, and exalt ia the discovery, aud plume
ourselves upon our wisdom or aeuteness, as
if we could know anything of Gratitation
