COUNTY AFFAIRS. , Let us turn again to Halifax coun ty, and. the report of: the . Conigland committee upon county finances. . i he next thing they call attention ' to is the rascality of the Board in the mat- .ter of. interest on county : bonds. It had been -decided that the county -debts bore - interest only on demand and at 6 per jent. But the Halifax Board contracted at 8 per .cent. : The I feport says: I 1 : - - - and were a favorite investment with countv ofneers, and on the levy of 1875 the sheriff, wno was a special, pet or the. .Board, paid almost all the county tax that he did pay in mem.- v. We come now to 7 examine n few points presented ik . report that concerns a Very richsention bf the State. It will -. bo. remembered . that in 1876 the Democrats .swept the State! under Vance's ."splendid leader ship. But still twenty-three couu ties remained under negro control. The report says: - - t "They contained, in 1870; three tenths of the population of the State, . and paid in 1879 two fifths of all the taxes collected by the state. . Their condition m 1878 was desperate.. . They -were taxed "to death; they were deeply in debt; they .had almost "gone to the dogs, a or county purposes alone they paid in 1874, $419,220.83; in 1875, $388,358. 48j in 1876, $404,500.77." 4 Before doing anything else read over that paragraph carefully again. Here arc only twenty-three negro ridden counties in 1879 three years ago paying- actually -t, two dollars in every five of the whole : taxes of the State. -Remember; there are. 96 counties. Less than one fourth of the 96 paid two-fifths of the whole, -The Conigland report shows that these twenty-three counties paid, under Radical rule Radical j extravagance, Radical plundering, in- three years one million two I hundred and twelve thousand and seventy dollars. This would . bave run the entire State Government before the war nearly or quite, an entire decade.1" ; The Stab, was right when it told its readers that the taxpayers were much more concerned, as far as their pockets rwere involved, in , having honest, economical .county; govern ment' than they were in having the State 'government -honest and eco nomical. It is county expenses that burden and oppress under profligate rule. ' The Conigland report refers to the changes wrought in favor of the tax payers by the change to the present system that the Radicals are clamor ing to get rid of. They are demand mg a . return to the very system by which .these . twenty-three counties were plundered, and m three years only were made to pay $1,212,090.07 taxes rneariy; a million, and a - quar-' ter dollars ; of taxes for county pur poses alone. Remember these start ling facts and figures, ye taxpayers. We quote from the report: -; f ; '.'The system of countv government was changed,decent men were made magistrates, tax-payers became tax-levyers.1 The result is, that these counties are once more pros perous, their debts paid off or in process of : . 1 . . : . . payment, anu xneir taxes immensely, re duced at the same time.

Ei-Hli .ResIgniH tion Accepted. r - At anadjourned meeting of the-.&mnty Democratic Executive" Committee, heldyest terday evening," Chairman F. Darby tendered his resignation, which was in terms as follows ;, t k ' . z. ' . '' ! Gentlemen of ihe Democratic County Execu tive Uommutee of JSew Hanover Vounty: It is especially due to you my friends and associates on this committee, with whom I have been, .with 'great pleasure to myself, and I am sure with entire confidence and frankness on the part of us all, associated in official position in the Democratic party, that whatever action I should take, or reply I .should make personally; in regard to the rumored nomination oj inyseir (for"? x .nave received nothing official or authoritative) for the position of-Judge of - this Judicial Uistrictj. should first pe made to you.- , I his I conceive aa a matter, of propriety - is due to you, and this I mustepnfess Xcheerf ully and wuungiy conceae; - eveff tnose wno have been the opponents of -our. committee in the Democratic party, must acknowledge that we have been faithful, energetic- and aggressive, and, have striven by every means in our power, ; consistent with the laws of our country, and with the personal integrity of each oius, to advance the out posts of our party as far as possible in the enemy's lines, never, allowing, ourselves to compromise or pesmirk Democratic prin ciples by the employment of any means for. .their ; advancement - which would iiot- be proper when applied for the advancement of our personal ends with our fellow men. .All the .more reason, therefore, why:, frank ness should characterize this communica tion in order that the honorable record our committee has ( made, as well as that the high personal and political integrity, of the gentlemen, as a jresult of whose canvass we were placed m our present position, snouid not be questioned even by inference either by my silence or my want of frankness, in this matter. I . First, then, utterly to my surprise, I was some days ago informed by a gentleman, a friend of mine, that I was about to be no minated by the Liberal Convention a their candidate for Judge of this Judicial Dis trict. I promptly authorized the Stab and liexiew to say that I would not accept the nomination. , . Since then I have been relia bly informed that that nomination has been indorsed by the Republican State Conven tion, and that I a resolution was thereby adopted endorsing me as a life-long Demo crat, requiring jj no sacrifice of my " well- known Democratic pnnciples, but reciting that the position of Judge being entirely non-nartizan. thev had confidence in my fairness and ability, believing that if elect ed I would be a Judge without regard to party. , Certainly not - even the most cap tious could say , tnat i nave saia or aone anything that bears the faintest impress of compromising or giving up any principle in any connection I have with this matter. In answer, therefore, to the question, as to whether or not I would serve in. such po sition, if elected,! I answer unhesitatingly that,- if elected on such a platform, my de termination, (the result of my own delibe rate conviction, unchanged and unchange able), is that I will take the , oath oi office, and serve to the . best of my ability, with many misgivings: as to my capability aud experience for filling the high and honora-. ble office, but with absolutely no hesitation as to it bemsr mv dutv to serve as a Juage above and irrespective of party, and I would sooner be defeated than say that I would not run if elected under such cir cumstances. -It would not be creditable to anv member of a community or State, in my opinion, where the bbhgationto per form a public duty is a part of the alle giance that the citizen owes to . tne govern ment, when a call to perform a public duty 1 1 A 1 is made, unsolicited- ana unsougut, ami comes, if it should come, without1 the slightest compromise of honor or principle, to say in. advance that he would not per form such rmblic dntv. s Again, if 1 am correctly lniormea. xne platform of the convention above referred to lava down tnis clause "a iree oauoiana a fair count" as one of its principles, j I certainly should be derelict to all the ideas I have heretofore entertained or expect to entertain of popular government, if I should hesitate to say I am in complete accord with that principle. The right of suffrage is a : fundamental and necessary principle of our government. It has been purchased at the cost of millions of money and of the blood of the fathers of the Republic, and has been ' a ; Democratic- pnnciple. The right of suffrage,; unless free,: with a count f unquestioned Sntegrity,is simply a direct contravention ana aeaiai oi a mnuameuuu principle. To make a popular government the ballot must pe tree ana tne count iair; otherwise the government which is the re sult of that ballot' will be the government of force and fraud. . Again,' another principle of the platform is opposition to the county government. T am and have been, as 1 is , by many well known, opposed, to county government: ilt is in direct and positive - contravention of a cardinal principle of popular govern ment: that is f local self eovernment,' which has always been one of the leading principles of "the 'Democratic party. To tak the election of county officials away from the people;: and put it in the hands of the Legislature lis ? consulting expediency, not beine euided bv principlclSuch action on the part of our party justifies the other extreme by the other partywhen in power, which will end in a surrender of principle on both sides, and . cause expediency to be taken altogether; as a gmde, eventually leaa insr oDDosine factions to break down prin ciples that are the bulwarks of liberty, and bringing us gradually to the disruption of nodular crovemment. . There, seems to me no difference in principle .-.between knock ing a manriu the head because he can't be controlled and annihilatineaTnajority be cause it can't be! controlled. , There may be abuses under the old. system that do not exist under the 5 county . government, but that is no reason why a grand principle should be surrendered. "Then, gentlemen, to put this matter en tirely at rest,', reiterating my allegiance to the general Democratic pnnciples, 1 consid er it my duty, holding-the views that I do. the result of deli Derate renecnon ana oi my ideas of the eeneral ; principles of popular crovernment. to say that,: while accepting no nomination, if I am elected, and " so far as this determination is concerned I care not whether I am ot not, that I will serve to the hest of mv abilitv. I will ask that my re signation as Chairman and member of this Committee be accepted. . . . " - . Respectf ullv. with kind regards to each of you individually and collectively,' : ; . F. H. Dabby. ' On nlotion the resignation of Mr. Darby was unanimously accepted. - The Committee then arranged a call for a Democratic County Convention, which will he found eisewnere. WILMINGTON, N.

It appears that Superintendent Savage took five of the prisoners out to do some work, placing two of them under a reliable guard, armed with a six shooter. with instructions to dp some ditching, and taking the other three with him to another part of the premises. - Pretty soon Walker made some excuse to get from .under, the immediate eye of the guard for a moment, and the next instant he was flying through the . thick undergrowth with almost ; the speed of an antelope,- completely- baffling the -efforts of the 'guard to halt him or shoot him.;,f.The latter soon afterwards re ported the escape to Superintendent Savage,1 who immediately took all the necessary steps td insure his capture, himself remain ing out during the entire preceding night engaged id searching for the fugitive.
