puwer. Such uureiiable hut-heads as Poine
roy.Nortli aud South, have caused the South
to sijffer greatly Charolot e Democrat.
We agree with the Democrat in its opinion of
Pomjeioy and his paper, and we desire to men-"
tiqn juiothcr that may be set down in the same
category, that is, the N. Y. Day Book. These
papers are no mure concerned about the real
welfare of the Southern people than t;he man
in tine moon. We have entertained this opinion
for a longtime, but because they had large cir
culations in the Sfouth, we have been careful to
keep, it to ourselves, lest we should be charged
with; selfhUT motfves for denouncing - ctiitn.
That they are rivals we do not hesitate to ad
mit; but that this is the secret of our condem
nation, we most emphatically deny.
The Dan Book has recently come out for

We jrould have given up every one rather than
hayej abandoned a ositi()n so strongly taken
against Greeley and persisted in for week after
hi. nomination by the Democratic parly. It
has therefore given up the principles of a life
time for the sake of a few dollars. Men who
gracefully support Greeley as the nominee of
the Democratic party, and as the less of two
evils' sacrifice no principle; but those who ob
stinately refused to do this for months after his
nomination,! and who now insist npon swallow
ing liim whole, puffing him to the skies as the
greatest living statesman, as a man who never
di.an unjust thing or uttered an unwise word,
merely because they find it to their interest to
do; so are bioth knaves and fools, ready to sell
thiir birthright for a mess of pottage.
Ade fronji the seltish motives which too evi
dently actuaie these papers in all that they do
and say, onejof them, at least, (Pomeroy's hem
octol is not fit to be admitted into a decent
man's honse. A more sjiameless, filthy, obscene
shetjis not t be found anywhere, not except
ing Woodhull and Citfiin's Weekly, the Police
Gazette, or thp Day's Doings.
Bui suppose the advice these papers have giv
en us: since th war had been acted upon, does not
evferjj man know that the South would today
bejina much worse condition than it is? Their
adviqe has been impracticable jargon, revolu
tionary and wild theories, crimination and re
crimination, abd appeals to the worst passions
ofja soured and helpless people. Not one thing
have they said or done calculated to promote
our pjecuniary ior local interests, secure to us
political freedom, give us peace and qniet at
homej; bnt ther doctrines have rather tended
to inflame tfie passions of our people, paralyze
industry, and produce demoralization and in
suWtlination. The fact is, those who control
these Sand other Northern papers know nothing
about! our. real Rendition, our surroundings, our
necessities, or our wants. Ytt there are hun
dreds; and hunjdmls of men throughout the
south; that subscribe and pay their money for
thpseinorttvern r.inds, in preference to tak
ing a Igood paper published -at home. We know
of several persons taking northern papers, who
depend for their local news on borrowing a f
home paper'from their neighbor! This ia ail
wjong, even if these northern papers were jiist
what hey should be in. every particular. It is
wrong to send nioney from home for any thing
that jou can procure with it at home. It is
wrong not to encourage and nstain home enter
prise, and it U a shame that any one should be
satisfied to remain ignorant of what is transpir
ing around him,j when it can be prevented bv
the judicious expenditure of a few dollars.

county, received a registered letter through
the Yanceyville Pot office, which he
opened in tho presence of T. J. llrown,
the worthy Postmaster, to see that the
conten's were all right. The letter was
from John Pool, enclosing two fifty dollar
bills for clectwncering pirww" Mr.
Urow n, an honest, clever gentleman, and
who is liberal in his political views, spoke
of the matter, and f.r doing whieh he has
been removed from office and notified that
a woman will be sent there to relieve him.
We are not advised as to her color, or
what relationship she sustains to Presi
dent Grant. And this is the Government
the Rads and '-straight out" Democrats
are Irving to perpetuate removing an
old and able officer simply because he let
it be known that the Government was
using the people's raaney to corrupt the
elections Mirough John Pool, the scaven

NEVER SAID IT.
The radical papers report that Judge
Merrimou has said that he will notcuutestelee
tiou with Cov. Caldwell. We venture Judge
Merrim-n has said no such tl in. He has
not committed hiinselfone way or another. If
the political friends.of Judge Mernmon dis
cover illegal votes sufficient to overbalance
Gov. Caldwell's majority, he will not be slow
to itake up the issue and submit it to the
decision of the Lerilature.
I We repeat, let all illeual and fraudulent

to lfiok well, to please; and ii ia one. of
lier duties to cany out this intention; of
her Maker. Rut that tlres is to do all,
and to suffice, is more than we can be
brought to believe. Just because we do
love to see giils look well, as well as to
live io some purpose, we. wo-ild urge upon
tlu m such a course of reading and study
as will confer such as no modiste can
supply. A w.ell kuowii author once wrote
a pretty essay on the power of education
to beautify that it absolutely chiseled
ihe features ; that he bad seen many a
clumsy nose and pair of thick lips so
modified b' thought awakened and active
sentiment as to be unrecognizable. And
he put it on that ground tli.it we often see
people, homely and unattractive in youth,
bloom in middle life into a softeiu-d Ins

THE ART OF SITTING PROPERLY.
All consumptive people, nnd all h Reeled
with spinal deformities, sit habitually
crooked, in one or more curves of the
body. There was a time in all these
when the body had its natural erectness,
when there was not the first departure on
the road to death.
The make of our chairs, especially that
great barbarism, the unwieldy and disease-engendering
rocking chair, favors
these diseases, and undoubtedly, in sonic
instances, leads to bodily habits which
originates the ailments just named, to say
nothing of piles, fistula'and the like.
A very common position in sitting,
especially among men, is with the shoul
ders against the chair-back, with a space
of several inches between the chair-back
and the lower portion of the spine, giving
the body the shape of a half hoop. It is the
instantaneous, instinctive, nnd almost uni
versal position assumed by any consump
tive on sitting down, nnleits conntemrted
4y an eff.irt of the will : hence parents
snouKi regard such a position, and should
rectify it at once.
