TO OUR FARMERS.
During a political campaign our
people are so engrossed with politics
tbat they give but little attention to
other matters ; but now, that the elec
tion has been held and the excite
ment attending it has subsided, we
hope that other questions may receive
serious consideration, and that our
people may become as much interest
ed in them as they have been in poli
To the discussion of any aud i
all questions that will tend to pro
mote the prosperity of our county
and State The Record gladly offers i
the use of its columns. Our object i
is to advance in every wav-
m atari ill
ly, mentally ana morally tne int'r-
ats of our people without regard to!
politics or color.
The great bulk of the people of
this county, and indeed of this State, i
mro directly interested in the cultiva
tion of the soil, and of course all oth
ers are indirectly interested. Our
agricultural interests, therefore, are
paramount to all others, aud for that
reason we desire to first address a j
few words to our farmers. If they j
are prosperous j if we have thrifty j
farmers, good crops, fat horses, hogs I
and cattle : if the soil is well cultiva
ted and the most improved imple
ments of husbandry are used, then
th country generally will be prosper
ous and all classes, trades, and pro
fessions will be benefitted. All will
admit the truth of this statement,
and, therefore, all should be interest
ed in bringing about so desirable a
condition of affairs.
The first question then is how can
this be done ? How can we best ad
vance our agricultural interest
some of our readers answer
urge a full and free discussion.

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
New York, Nov. 8, 1880.
Ed. Record : "We have met the
enemy and" (the completion of the
sentence must be deferred to some
future time.) Like the old man of
the sea on the shoulders of Sinbad,
the sailor, it seems that the Republi
can party has its grip upon the Re
public and cannot be shaken off.
Democrats are sunk in the mire of
despondency; and well they may be.
When four years ago they were cheat
ed out of the Presidency by one of
the most outrageous frauds in the
category of political crimes, rather
than plunge the country into civil
war, they submitted and decided to
appeal to the American people to
right the wroujr, and to punish the
perpetrators of the crime. The re

Washington Nov. 8th, 18S0.
The election is over, and all that re
mains of the political excitement in
cident to the campaign will shortly
be transferred to the city. The Re
publican party again triumphs. It
is needless to further discuss the
means and appliances by which the
result lias been accomplished, or to
agree now upon the justice of the
Democratic cause. The influences
that have oncompassed its defeat are
well known. The power of the office
holders, the corporations aud con
centrated mouied interests of the
country is greater in the balance
than the" mere will of tho people.
Practical politics are too much for
sentiment and principle. The nation
al banks, railroad monopolies and
other spcci-tl interests recognize the
Republican pa-ty as tho agent that
has enabled them to grind large
profits out of tho masses, and they
hope for si ill further benefits from
it. These interests control, by coer
cion or other influences, a million vo
ters, who, left to their inclinations,
would vote the Democratic ticket.
Add to this the efforts of an enor
mous army of office holders with the
iYiends thy control and we have a
combination which no simple majori
ty can overthrow. Nobody doubts
that a majority of the American peo
ple are to-day opposed in sentiment
its grip upon power.

was during the winter of ISG3, for
soma trivial offense committed to the
guard house by a field ollicer's court.
He remained there all night, and his
f-.:et aud legs were so badly frozen
ttiat it was necessary to amputate
them both. He applied for a pen
sion, but for one reason or another !
his ease was not acted upon. About
a year ago it was passed upon by
Deputy Commissioner Clark, but is
now again before the office on a re
commitment. The pension for the
loss of both legs is the same as for

The widow of Abraham Lincoln
recently returned from Europe and
it is said will make "Washington her
home. She arrived by the same
steamer that brought Sara Bernhart
and the crowd that welcomed the
actress rudely pushed aside poor Mrs,
Lincoln. A Journalist of my ac
quaintance relates the following story
about. Mrs. Lincoln's life in the
White house. He Bays: "In 1862
I came from Richmond, a paroled
prisoner of war and called at the
White House, by appointment at 8
o'clock in the morning. Capt. Watts,
then the major domo, received me,
and we were taking a quiet sip of
Scotch whiskey, when an excited
footman came in and cried, 'Cap'n,
the old woman wants yer!' 'All
right,' said Watts, placidly. Two
seconds afterwards the door again
opened with T tell ye the old wo
man wants ye ; she's raising h 1
down stairs.' Such was the domestic
life of the wife of a President, and
Mrs. Lincoln unfortunately for her
self, has as little real respect shown
her now as in the days of her greatest
social prominence. Phono.

It will thus be seen that the ma
jority for Jarvis is 7,730 in the coun
ties whose official vote is known.
While the official vote of the other
counties is not known, yt enough
has been heard from them to justify
us in stating that the majority for
Jarvis is about 7,500.
Hancock runs ahead of him just as
Tilden ran ahead of Vance in 1876.
A Tribute to Gen. Hancock.
The New Yoik Herald says : "Gov.
Cornell's thanksgiving proclamation
is published, and Gen. Hancock has
probably issued a private and per
sonal thanksgiving order of his own.
Among the men who have been prom
inently before the public in the past
few months none have found the ex
citement as distasteful as he ; on the
other hand, no other candidate has
been so impervious to malice and
mud. To emerge from a heated cam
paign w ith a reputation as good as he
started with is greater lory than
could have been gained by an election
to the Presidencv."
Gen. W. R. Cox.
The official returns show that this
gentleman has been chosen to repre
sent this (the ourth Congressional)
district by a majority of 1,313 over
M. A. Bledsoe. The Metropolitan
district has done itself honor by this
choice of one of its leading and most
popular citizens. Gen. Cox is no
stranger to JNortn Carolinians, for
during the past twenty years he has
been conspicuous and prominent in
whatever general movements or meas
ures appertained to their interests.
He was born in Halifax county,
March 11, 1831, was educated in
Nashville, Tennessee, and received
his license to practice law at the Leb
anon Law School of that State, and
settled in Baleigh in 1859. At the
beginning of the war he was appoint
ed Major of the Second North Caro
lina Begiment, and rose by successive
promotions to the rank of Brigadier
General. He was assigned to the
command of Bamseur's celebrated
brigade, and as its gallant leader re
ceived several wounds and made
many perilous escapes. As its leader
he made the last charge at Appomat
tox. At the close of the war he was
made President of the Chatham Bail
road. In 1868 he was elected Solic
itor of the metropolitan district,
which position he fiUeel acceptably f or
six years. He was chairman of the
State Executive Committee of the
Democracy for several years, and re
signed to accept the position of Judge
of the Superior Court. He is now
serving his second term as Grand
Master of the Masonic fraternity of
the State. For ten years he has
borne an active and prominent part
in the politics of the State.
Such is the man chosen by the De
mocracy to represent this district in
the Forty-Sixth Congress. As the
brave and gallant soldier, as the . up
right and incorruptible Judge, as the
exemplary citizen, as the true and de
vot d friend to the best interests of
his State, no man has a stronger hold
on the confidence and esteem of his
people. In his new and responsible
position he will be, as in the past,
ecpial to every emergency, and he
will worih'dv and proudly represent
our North Carolina Democracy on the
floor of the Federal Congress. News
Population of the World.
The present population of the en-;
tire crlobe mav be estimated at 1.- i
j 455.000,000. This is a number al- ;
, mo.-t beyond the g asp of persons not j
j very conversant with rii"hinctical cal j
i culations. Suffice it to say that the j
j population of London. takn in its ;
! widest sense, is -4.000.000, and that, j
j consequently the whole world con- j
: tains oidy 364 times as many perto?is !
, an tne metropolis of the British em
pire. If the numbers are arranged
in the order cf the great divisions of
j tho globe, As!a. with its 834.000,000
j of inhabitants, stands first on the
,list, followed bv Em-ope with less!
(than half as many- viz: 315.O00.000. j
! Africa has 205.000.00, and America i
! only 95,000.000, while Australia and j
! Poiynraia contain 4,000. 0-.H?, and the
j Pclar regions only S2.000. These j
! numbers a ided together, with the j
i fractions we havo omitted, give the
j grand total of ,445.000,0001 If we
J inquire into the populations of the j
1 different countries of Europe we fir.d '
1 that Great Britain and Behind, with i
: its 34.000.000. is by no means the ;
most populous, for Germany is esti -
mated at 44,000.000. Ansiriaa Hun
gary at 38,000,000, and France at
af,000.000.- Among the smaller ting
doms Denmark has about half the
population of London, namely, only
a few thousand over 2,000.000. Swit
zerland has 500,000 more. Belgium,
one of the densest populated king
doms, has 5,500.000; Sweden 4.500,-
j 000 ; Spain 16.000,000, aud Portugal
nearly 5,000,000. liussia 13 sparsely
peopled in proportion to its extent,
the whole population of its immense
aia only amounting to 88.000,000.
But perhaps the most striking results
of these investigations He in the fact
that the handful of British in Asia
control the destinies of 240,000,000
of natives. In America the United
States is by far the greatest, power,
the population of Brazil coming next,
