bellion is not killed it is because the party in
power since the war would not let it die, but
have been constantly feeding It to keep it
alive. If a proper policy had been pursued
at the close of the war the people of the
Southern States would to-day be the most
loyal f any in the Union, if they are not so.
If the counsels of the true Union inen at the
South had prevailed the Southern people
could easily have been conciliated by a mag-
mnimous policy. The Republican party
l.iid it in its power to make itself the pre
dominant party in every State in the Sooth
without enfranchising the colored popula
tion. But it repelled the respectable men of
the South, including nearly all the respecta
ble Uuionista, for the sake of a few men of
broken fortunes and tainted reputations who
would be a disgrace to any government, and
who were actuated, as a class, by no motives
beyond the acquisition of power for the grat
ification of their private malice aud revenge.
Gen. Grant evidently desires to repair the
errors which have been committed, as far as
it may be in his power to do so. We are
now assured, upon unquestionable authority
that he will submit to the people of Virginia
separately all the more obnoxious features of
the recently formed Constitution for that
State, so as to epablethem to get rid of them
without defeatijg reconstruction under the
reconstruction laws. In short he will do all

THE CHERAW AND SALISBURY
We cheerfully give place to the communi
cation on this subject from Maj. Robbm.
We have before intimated that we regard
this as the route designated by nature fur a
railroad from Salisbury to an Atlantic port.
Instead of running straight across the princi
pal streams, and some of the mountain ranges
of the State, it runs parallel with such streams
and mountain range and presents a few
obstacles to the construction of a railroad as
are to be found on any route of the same
length. It will give us a connection wiib
Wilmington many il shorter than the one
we now have. We see from the Democrat
and the Argun that the citizens of Cheraw
and Wadesboro feel a deep interest in this
r nte, as do the citizens of Charleston ; and
it is natural that they should. We hope the
meeting called in the communication of Maj
Bobbin will be well attended, and that ap
propriate action will be taken. We do not
wish to be understood a opposing the Fay
ettcville road, but of the two we think this al
together the most feasible aud much the
most likely to be built at least to this point.
The natural route for the Fayetteville road
is the one parallel with the Cape Fear and
Deep Rivers, and the mountain ranges of
TTwbarrie.' to connect with the North Caroli
na, and N. W. N. C roads at High . Point
and Salem, or at Greensboro', and such is
likely to be the route finally taken. Yet,
even if the Fayetteville road should be built
to this place, there is no reason why we
should not also do everything in our power
for the Cheraw road. We hope the men of
meaus among us will give this subject the
attention which it deserves. Salisbury un
questionably possesses advantages over every
other place in the State for a great inland
city and sooner or later, if its citisens exhibit
the requisite enterprise and public spirit, it
vill become by far the most important and
thriving place of business in North Caroli
na. New lem and Wilmington alone excepted.
The great blemish upon the present ad
ministration thus far is the spirit of proscrip
tion which ha characterized it. The rule
skeins to I f that alt of the appointee of the
late administration must be displaced for no
other reason than they were it appointee.
Iu many instance true and tried Republi

delphia soon. The object of these jour
nal, and those who support them, ia to
revolutionize oar government and change
it form from that of a representative dem
ocracy to a monarchy. We say from a
democracy to a monarchy, for if our gov
ernment wa what the wisest statesmen
of the Revolution would have nude it a
well balanced republic no advocate of
such a change a is now proposed could
be found in all the length aud breadth of
the land. "When ever you run too far
into a democracy," said the greatest and
wisest statesman of the Convention of
1787, "you will certainly shoot off into a
monarchy." These won! might be re
garded a prophetic if they had not been
fully justified by the history of tho past.
The appearance of an imperial party in
our midst is plainly traceable to the teach
ing of American radicalism. The ear
liest and the ablest of the radical teachers
in America was Thomas Jefferson, the
father of the Democratic party in the
United State. The Republican party of
the present day, which claims, and with
perfect troth, to be the true Jeffeisonian
Democracy, ha pushed the theories and
idea of that great apostle of Democracy
to their legitimate consequence in every
thing but State rights. From the "ex
treme of democracy" into which they have
pushed the country we are almost certain,
sooner or later, to "shoot off into a mon
archy." The present movement my be
premature we believe it is but we are
certainly traveling the same road which
all the democracies have travelled before
us. Witness Rome, for instance, where
the great leader of the demociacy, Juliu
Ctesar, vaulted to the seat of euspire,
lille the great leaders ot the aristocracy,
Pompey and Cato, died martyrs to the
cause of republican liberty. So it will be
in thi country after awhile the chaage
will h: delayed for a time b) physical
caueee. For our part, while no democrat,
we are opposed to the revolution, peacea
ble or otherwise. We are for giving oar
democratic institutions a longer trial and
never abandoning them until their failure
becomes so palpable that the dullest com
prehension cannot fail to see i. When
the failure is made manifest, as it will be
in the course of time, an empire is the on

CHERAW AND SALISBURY R. It.
Mr. Editor : I desire to call the spe
cial attention of the citizens of Salisbury
and the surrounding country to the im
portance of their taking immediate steps
to encourage the construction of the above
Road, for which a charter was granted at
the recent session of the Legislature. It
mute will be nn the western side of the
Pedes and Yadkin rivers, through Anson
and Stanly counties, and crossing the
Wilmington and Charlotte Railroad near
Wadesboro. At Cheraw, as is well known,
the railroad from Charleston called the
North Eastern Jload, now terminates ; so
that this new road of which I am writing
will place us in direct communication with
Charleston, besides also with Wilmington
by the Wilmington and Charlotte road.
It is only eighty mile to Cheraw ; and
a the road can be located on a very easi
ly graded route, certainly it offers to us a
connection among the most feasible and
advantageous that can be found. .-In in
spection of the map will at once show this.
1 he ISorth Eastern llaiiroad rompany,
and the people of Charleston and Cheraw,
are extremely aniious to aid in making
this connection ; because it affords them
the most favorable line to the Mississippi
vslley, by wsy of tur Western N. C.
road. Tho ( liai iestonians as well the
North Eastern Railroad Company have a,
aomviderable amount of available funds
which they are ready to devote to the
building of this connection ; and the rnnte
is already graded to the 8. C. State line,
ten miles this side of Cheraw. A meet

will take place at Cheraw, on .Wednesday
