ELECTION, TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 6.
Democrats of the Third District
are you fully awake to the impor
tance of the election to be held on
Tuesday next? Do you realize the
fact that there is danger thai
may have as your representative in
the next Congress a Radical of the
deepest dye one of your indigo
blujr kind? Do you -comprehend
fully the significancy of the! next
election that upon its results in
thirty States which vote on the 5th
of November, depends tho safety of
American institutions? Do you un-
derstand that upon the comp:exion
of the next Hou3e of Representatives
may really depend two questions of
the greatest import: first, whoij 6hall
be President of the United States;
second, what changes shall be : made
in the financial policy of the country.
Are you prepared for the issue?j Are
you at work.-u Are you faithful

THE KASTERN OUTLOOK.
The aspect of Eastern affairs ap
pears to be gradually undergoing se
rious changes. The Bulgarian insur
rection is assuming larger propor-
tions. and ssia is directly accused
ffbeing sponsible for it. The re-
bellion seems to have broken out im
mediately under the eyes of Russian
troops. Russia denies having con
nived at or favored the Bulgarian in
surrection, and declares it has no po
litical significance. On the other
hand, it is believed in Berlin that the
movement has more than a mere local
significance, and extends beyond and
affects questions of a European char-
acter. In the meantime the Porte is

This old established and widely known
hotel has been thoroughly renovated and
refitted during the past summer by the
present proprietors, Messrs. Cobb Bros., and
now offers accommodations of a superior
character. The building now contains
seventy rooms, single, double, and en suite,
all of which are newly carpeted, newly
painted, and furnished in handsome new
black walnut chamber sets, the whole pre-
senting as nice and comfortable hotel ac
commodations as the most fastidious could
desire or expect, j
Among the attractive features we would
mention a handsome bridal chamber, which
has been fitted up and furnished in the
most elegant style; a pleasant reading
more interest to travellers generally.a first-
class bar-room, with all of the most attrac
tive and tempting paraphernalia. The
building is belled throughout, tbe passages
and stairways covered with new carpets or
oil cloths, and the' walls are all tastefully
repainted. With ihe recent improvements
and additions tbe hotel can now accommo
date about two hundred and fifty guests,
and in all tbe comforts and conveniences is
not inferior to anj similar establishment in
the State. !
We are gratified to note that the present I
proprietors, who j succeeded Col. J. R.
Davis, are receiving a goodly share of the
public patronage, and as good hotels are
institutions which everv citv RhnnM ha

or. Judge Mearea, on Saturday
evening last, on an application for a reduc
tion of bond. As before stated, there arc
twelve cases against him, ten for embezzle
ment, one for ac affray, and one Tor assault
and battery, the latter in Pender. The bail
required of him in the first instance was J ails, broke gaffs, &c, the vessel spring
$200 in each case, or $2,400 in the aggre- lnS aleak; threw deck load of lumber over-
gate. The amounts were reduced by Judge'
Meare8t6 $100 in each of Ihe embezzle
ment cases and. to $50 in tbe affray, the
bond in the assault and battery case re
maining the same as before, at $200. This
makes the aggregate bail now required of
Heaion $1,250. which is to be fnrnishprl tn
Judge Meares himself. The bail had not
been furnished up to a late hour last evening,
and Heaton, as a consequence, remained a
boarder at the Hotel de Howard.
That was a very appropriate reply made
by a prominent colored man of our city,
who, when interviewed and requested to
use his influence and vote for the Knight
of the- Lordly Strut the son who never
soiled his hands by toil remarked, "I
can't do it; I 'don't know where to find the
Judge. Four or five weeks ago he advised
me to support tbe regular nominee of the
Republican party. Now he says the Re
publican party is a d d fraud. lam a
KepuDiican, and therefore can't support
one who has just left my party afjer being
honored by it, and now abuses it." ,

people of Duplin, at Duplin Roads, on

stated in the Stak, Maj. Jno. W. Dunham;
of this city, will also be present and speak.
We hope there will be a large crowd to hear

and finding that tbe Republican candidate
after denouncing the Greenback candi

honorably support has suddenly with
drawn, anddvised all Republicans to vole
for thesaid Greenback candidate, who is
also recommended by the Republican Ex

that party to vote for, I deem it proper to
submit a few remarks as appropriate to the
occasion. A juvenile employe of Mr. Dan
iel L. Russell, tbe Greenback candidate,has
presented me with his circular addressed to
the voters of tbe Third Congressional Diss
triCt, and I have read the same with the I
sentiments which inspire every fair-minded
citizen who has seen it.
At the outset of this address Mr. Russell
proposes to "ignore all the issues of the
past." If I know the people of tbi3 Dis-
trict, that is just exactly what they do not
propose to do. They have a very retentive
memory as to tbe "issues of the nasi "
