So fisr aa OoL Jonea la oonoemed, aa we said before, hla platform is good and we beliere if elected, he woold do more for colored men than many of tbeir Bepnblican friends hare done.

And don’t yoa for get it, we are assured by the oo). or^ people that we speak their aentimenta, and they are at our back. He who says we want to kill the Bepnbliean ticket with colored men mistaken. We hare not onoe specified any nnmber of colored men to go on the county ticket, bnt we think a white maii who would vote fbr f'^'iaan on account of his ocdor, should be ashamed of the' Bapnblisan party, and should not be 7otod for by ocdored mea. Snob a man draws the color-line so tight ly that be is color-blind. THi OANOIOATlt FM SOUCITOII. 's'^-'^t that one. We want to be I them wbeee tbe col- ui'uJ tueii i» i,> i-uinv ii).

But what kind of Coalition ie of fered to 08 7 heretofore the county ticket has been inrariably made up from among whit# men while the colored men did fbur-fiAhs of the voting. We shoold not complain so much of that (as they say colored men would defeat the ticket,) if we wore recognised in Federal appoiat- mento. Now what kind of Coali tion is wanted 7 White and colored men vote together and share the spals equally, or are the tiokets to be ntade entirely of white men and ail tbe Federal officers to be white men also 7 We speak the sentiments of the colored voters of Mecklenburg county when we say we are tired being led by two or three men, to vote for the men of their choice, and their choice often a Dmnocrat, and whenever any one Is rewarded it is a white man. You shall not charge ns with drawing the cefior- line—the line ia drawn ag^nst ns, and to insure the colored vote for CoaUtion or anything else, we most be assured that our devotion to party ia respected. To be plain, we want more colored men appoint ed to lucrative positions. We know there is a chronic set unfit for place who are always ready and asking. Onr better class is more modest. We want such honored with places as will do credit to onr race. We would love to see tbe Bour bon Democrats defeatod, bnt if they are to be defeatod by oar votes, we have a right to kaow wkat advan tage that defeat is to be to ns ah a race, or as a party. The expedien cy of tbe policy is questioned. We are asked to hold our peace upon certain queetions. Wait, they say, and yon will see. Over five hun dred persons eagerly look for tbe MassKiroxB eveiy ^torday morn ing, and tboee readers demand of us to know who is to be voted fbr by them for office, or wbai is being done toward nominating men. Tb^ say tbe Democrats are pattii^ out tbeir men and why should we be so late. Some want this kind of tick et and others that. We thaok tbe time has oomo when we should have and vote for sooh men aa will recognise us as dtisens and admin ister tbe laws justly, regardiea of the oolar of a mao’s sUn- We have atuok to the party like tar to a bteok eat’s tail; and what have we profited by it 7 Now tbe same men are aaUog ns to forsake par^ aad vote Coalition. Shoold we not look np and ask where are wegoing? Tbov are too many In- telUgeat colored man among os now to lead ns aa abaap to tbe atenghtor as we were tea and twelve yean ago. Many of us think for ooealvea now, and woald like to vote to our intereeta. While we do not oteim tbe r^t to dictate a polky nor a ticket, aa many of oar fiiende do, yot wa oteim tbe right to axprem the een- timanta of oar pecqile, as we know we do in tbie oaee. Ow peopledo not eee the expediency of CoaUtion;' many of the more tntaUigeat do, provided oar people are to fore aay better by H, if not, we ooreelfare nanhle to eee whereby wr ere to profit.

On Wodneeday morning of last week we boarded the ton o’clock ao- oommodatlon train for 8tat«evitl«» After starting we found thpt we were the only passenger, and had a fair chance to' see the eountry and tbe growing crops. We found Mr* Witherspoon a ver}* polite con ductor. The road M is in pretty feir condition, and at times one would think he was making equal time to tin fast maii on tbe Air^ Line. After getting about four miles from tbs city we found the crope looking fine. Tbe com was fell grown, as green as yon please; oot- tott 18 and 20 inobee high, fields green and white specked with bidh- soma. Gardens aiad potatoes' look fine. It is really encouraging to see how proaperrus tbe farms look. Barren fields of stubble show that large crops of graia have been gathered. The oooBtry seems ao more hilly than aronod us. Fine forests of oak timber and good forming land^. Tbe little towns along the way look very prosperous, and some of them are building up. The fruit trees along the way are suflhnng greatly, being over-ladened with ftniit AT STATISVILLC. Wo alighted from the cars and struck out fbr town, when all of a sudden, to onr suiprise, we eepied Bev. D. B. Stokes sitting in a cozy little ootti^ who hailed in fats usual way, took us in, introduced os to Mrs. Stokes, and wo there spent an 'hour or two very pleasantly. We badtbepleasnre ofeatingapiece of tbeir wading cake and exam ining many of tbe elegant preeenta. We were shown some lovely wax- flowers made by Mrs. 8. We then went to tbe revenue Bee, tbe office of the Anterican and the Landmark. We found tbe edit ors of these papers vory polite. There certainly are not two bettor lookingaod more polite gentiemen in North Canriioa than Messrs. Drake and Caldwell. After picking up a few subscribers and a little filthy lucre, we visited Stokes’ floe brick eburob, where he has a nice organ. Hero hetoaohaa music, and we learn has a very- floe congregation. We then retomed to Blder Beives', where we were kindly cared fbr dur- ing ihe night Many t-hanka to Beva. Stokes aad Bievea for kind- nem shown. They have many new buildings going ap, many eburofaes, add, by the way, the Zion Method ists own a very nice loiAiog ahoroh, add tbs colored Masons own a nice two-story large frame building, in which they meet, and rent tbe lower hall for fostivala, Ae. Bveiything seems {deasant around Btetesvitla. MV ta(ar« dw Mtoc, Mke-weew v«k lorwtbustMviMBt •ve, tsritaiMt mmM. WVvIHMan wowett-teyi im tirii vasM airnfmii to wackjMM. JlowtotM tiM.
