the prevalence of terrible stories
Statesville and elsewhere West, espe
cially, concerning the health of Salis
bury. The American's article is 'mod
erate in comparison to somq of these
stories. We met a man a day or two
ago evidently wrought-up an up
country man who said to us, " Mis
ter, its right smart sickly 'bout here,
aint it?" " Well, yes," we answered,
this is the chill season of tie year
and we have more of that kind of
sickness this year than we have had
for twelve or fifteen years. But it is
not very dangerous yields readily to
ordinary remedies," &c. " I heard,"
said he, " that there was a powerful
o.gnt, wi. pcuuie uyin- nere. a man
told me that there was five dead peo
ple lyin in one house back here, and
a signt .ot sicknessall around." " It
is not true as to the five dead people,"
we answered, "and may not be as to
the sickness of the neighborhood."
We learn that it is reported in the
counties North-west of here, that we
were burying ten corpses a day. If
this story increases as it travels out
according to custom, the number will
soon reach one or two hundred ! afld
finally frazzel itself out to libthing. I
There is veryjittle dangerous sick
ness in Salisbury, of any kind. We
do not know of a single case of typhoid
fever, or any other mdlignant disease
either known or supposed to be con
tagious. We have mild cases of bit
u u imerumieuii levers, iust as
they are prevailing all over the coun
try at this season of the year. There
is more of sjich sickness this year than
usual more here as well as in all the
surrounding coantry as far as we have
heard. 1 hw, and nothing more, all
wild stories to the contrary, notwith
standing. We challenge any comma
nity of equal size-in the State to an ex
hibition of bills of mortality. If there
be more sickness here than elsewhere
in the country, it is owing to some
cat cause, and these questions are
engaging attention of citizens. There
will be an adjourned meeting at Town

TnE EXTENT OF NEGRO INTOLER-
5 A Ji C.
Messrs Editors : Here is aninatance of the
extent to whichij negroes earrj their prejudice
and political intolerance :
About the 5th of September a negro man died
in this neighborhood, and the man on wh.
land he lived, got the coffin, thinking that the
colored people would attend to the burial ; but,
to the surprise of the neighborhood, the corpse
lay in me House from Thursday evening till
Saturday morning, and not a neero came nr
except the grave diggers. The weather was
very warm and the corpse had become so nutrid
and offensive that it had to be wraiml nn !k
the filthy soiled clothes that were on it when
death took places and thus laid in th mffln
The causa of this treatment was because the de
ceased was a Conservative, having cast his vote
ine f nIt PopI. This shows the extent
of negro Intolerance, and how bitter and clone!
leagued they are against Conservative. TKi",

THE ROBBERY OF THE SOUTH.
Hon. S. S. Cox mnrle a brilliant cam
paign speech in New York Tuesday nigth,
in which he spoke as follows about the
robbery of the South by Grant's carpet
Talk to those Southern men of Arkan
sas and South Carolina on the tariff and
on matters of Federal taxation, and the
fiscal policy of the Government, you
might as well talk to the winds. Do you
talk ton man of the components of calo
ric when his house is on fire? He will not
reason with y ou then. I wat, on the Kc
Klux Committee. I offered a resolution
with iegard to the State debts and the
other sources Of Southern impoverishment
and discouteut. The majority voted it
down, but we finally got to the canse of
all the trouble, and it was just bad gov
ernment, not the enormous taxation alone,
the maladministration of justice alone,
but all the various causes combined. We
found that over two honored and fiftv
millions dollars of debts had been piled
on the States of the South, and nothing
to show for it not a poor house, not a
Courthouse, net a hospital, not a Peniten
tiary, although they were much needed
there. (Laughter. And there they stand
in all the Sonthern States, asking that we
give them relief from this bccurscmcnt nnd
bedevilment, and say, tbe man who will
put down this oppression and testore
peace is Horace Greeley. Applause.
