this inNewY orky Washington, Vir

It seems that the tidal wave of revo
lution has struck Pennsylvania also.
The,Philadelphia Times has this to
say ' 'i - - . -
"Sfhe rebellion in the colored vote against
Bosses and machine methods is one of the
grayest problems the machine leaders have
been called upon to meet, .It is all the more
grave because . it was wholly unexpected;
and when , it is remembered that the colored
vote of -Philadelphia holds' the, balance of
power, between the two parties and that it
is also the balance of power in the State,
the Bosses are justly alarmed at the formi
dable defection in the machine line. An
other "trouble is - that the leaders -. of the
colored movement for: emancipation from
the, Bosses are unpurchasable."
In, this ,3tate in the past this could
not bk said, i' Any attempt , at inde
pendent action has resulted in a free
distribution of "loot money,' and bp
position on the part of the negro has
been" quieted.;'; ' '
We' have met with a -paragraph in

as follows: ' . "
'Missouri newspapers say that it is : the
intention' of J. Milton Turner and other
leaders of the negro" element in Missouri to!
place independent tickets in the field when-:
ever the opportunity presents itself," as a
means' of punishing the Republican politi

CoL Cash, of duelling fame, spoke
at Rock Hill on Saturday. He was

himself and. retun)edbut did ' not
finish, his speech. , A special to the
Charleston .News and Courier says:
' He ; panders to the -prejudices of the
negroeaby expressing abhorrence of the
oppressions which he alleges -are heaped
upon them5" by the State government," and
by charging Hamptcn with violating his
pledges-to these people. He is opposed to
an intlux of 'lager beer drinking Dutchmen
and spotted faced Italians but ia in' favor
. of bringing the negroes from Virginia and
North Carolina down here and making
them of South Carolina, as he expressed it,
'A Black New York.' His presence excited
curiosity feut his speech has aroused an in

'The new freight rates for the South

"Some, freight agents, however. think
that the advance in cotton rates is too great

principal Southern points the old rates were

THE RADICAL I.EGISATJBE OF
As we have had, occasion to say
often, there is. nothing comes home
to a peoplcrmore . nearly than; exces
sive and oppressive taxation. . Tha,
reason why the' whole people have
been so tolerant of the tariff is that,
they have paid $1.50 tax on their $3
hat and $125 tax on their $3 shoes
and have not known it It is so, too,"
with the revenue tax to the majority.
They., have been heavily taxed but
did not feel jit, because they paid it
to the dealer instead of the .tax
He that is taxed, not seeing how you tax
him, " - '!';'
Let him not know't and he's not taxed
: - ataU."
: We may , extend the. "remark and .
say that the people of North Carolina
have been far more tolerant of ' Rad
icalism than' they would be if .they
had imprinted upon their minds pre-:
cisely what it has done against them
in their pockets. - If every honest Lv
boring man and hard-pressed .tax-,
payer in the State knew the extent of
the plundering of the old -'Radical
party; if they knew the actual excess
of taxes they had paid because ' of.
these plunderings, we -feel certain
that two things they would never do
-forgive the plunderers and vote to
put them and their successors in .of-,
fice. . "
It is the duty of " the public press
to recur to the past and to remind the
over-burdened taxpayers what they
have suffered in the past. Reminded
of these things they will understand
better what they may expect in the
future if the plunderers are restored
to power. In matters of govern
ment nothing is more important than'
to recur to first principles and to ex
amine into the management of par
ties. The test of the worth of prin-.
ciples is to reduce them to practice.
as to what they promise. . They go
or winning. Parties in convention
may declare that they favor this tor
that principle or-measure, .but. may
ail in their practice. Let us bring the
opposition to ' the only safe ;test.
Let us examine into their record and
see how they 'did when in possession
of the State Government. .'1 ......
In 1868 the Radicals got full pos-
session, jn o one can ever i torget
those times, y. A visit to Raleigh wes
enough to give a patriot ' the blues
for a twelve-month. Corruption lif t-
ed its unblushing head in . the capi-
tol. Peculation, fraud, bribery, de--
bauchery, were, the order of the day,
and marked the progress of the
night. It was a . time of . political
prostitution. Littlefierd and his set
were masters,.." of .the' .'arena,-, and
North Carolina Was prostrated' Pre
datory beasts and human ghouls held
carnival in the halls of debate and in
the chambers of conference. But no
pen can draw the lines; no brush can
deepen the colors enough.,-i(. ' - r, (-
j What did the Radicals when' they
got into power ? In the first place;
the-Legislature sat for nearly-an en
tire year.v - The exact time was ,304
days. This : useless, foolish, corrupt
long session resulted as might have
been ' expected. It " cost the poor
people the stripped and pealed and
hard-worked, tax -oppressed whites,
$430.958.68 four hundred and thirty
thouSarid nine hundred and fiftv-
eight dollars and j sixty-eight Scents.
This is what the Radical Legislature
of Worth Carolina of 1868-69 cost
you, the people. As long as memory
lastsj-this period of wholesale plun
der and ' corruption ' shoutdnever be
forgotten. Let the honest tax-payers
never forget that when' the Radical
party; bad : full sway in North Caro
lina that, they spent upon themselves
$430,958.68 during one Legislatttrel
In. contrast take the Democratic
Legislature. - The total expenses of
the two sessions of a879-80 were
$71,293.80. We 'see that the sum

themselves for-one Legislature would
last for nearly twelve years under

fact. Cut it out and paste it in your

icals in paying themselves daring the
