What will now become of the democratic portion of tbe liberals? Tbe principlea of tbe republican party still lives and wo hope to see it again flonrisb. The late election is a democratic victory bnt not a repnblican defeat. Liberalism ia not repablicanism. Tbe Massiirau is now sent to all the institntions of learning in this and adjoining States. We will be glad to bear flrom them. Tbe election has taken our time and mind this week. Onr readers should not expect a good paper this week. Take this paper now. We intend tbe first of tbe year. Every read* ing colored person in tbe city should take it. Zion Wesley Institute is now in lull operation. Rev. J. C. Price is tbe principal. For particulars and circulars, address Rot. C. R. Harris, Baliebniy, N. C. Who did it ? Johnson, Leach and Price, with their little hatchets, entting off the heads of republicans and batching whiskey domocrsts in their stead. **1 told yon so.” There was a very liv^y contest for tbe constable plaoee intbis town, ebip, there being eight candidates. Oor candidate, Sam J. Caldwell and John Orr were sleeted. Mr. Jobn M. George gave Mr. Orr a very oloee ran, tbwe being lees tban a, dosen votes diflbronce. Republicans'simply rest on tbelr nrsos in North Caroiina. They are not defeated. They langh at the USeial defintt and will be prepared for the deaoemts in '84, under tbe lendetship of the repnblicane who made the par^ and have stood by it and snteod for it Tbe : oowtae the My (^deoerting tbelr Kow is your time to take tbe KfiTrnsa while money : fhL Don't forget it plonti- Think of Rf Dowd's m^ority in thisQoaa^in UNwasMwsor CoL Mywa.

Tbe democrats ciaim a rcgnlar Waterloo. We are not ready to givenp all hopes yet We do not think it so bad as they say, though reliable reports come very slow. We think there is still a chance for ns to bold Congreea. We have loet many members in tbe North and Weei,and gained several in the South. Among these we have two or three colored men. O'Hara is elected without opposition, and Lynch of Mississippi stands well for a seat Tbe democrats claim this State by ton thousand. New York givee 120,000 democratic majority. Old Maaaachnsetts goca democratic 20,- 000, and elects Ben Butler Gover nor. Strange things are happen ing. WHAT IT TEACHES. The result of tbe recent election in North Carolina teaches us some very important lessons. Bnt then, have we not been taught the same lessons before ? If so why have we not been profited by them. One thing wc are taught is, that prohibition has not divided tbe dem ocratic party as bad as the republU can party. That democracy is much stronger in North Carolina tban pro- hibition. That tbe masses have not confidence in the men who attempt* ed to lead them in this campaign. That tbe greatest mistake made was tbe giving up of party principles and casting off onr best men and putting in their stead inexperienced men—men who are not known out side of their own counties. It teaches us that men who have been ostracised and persecuted for tbe Bake of the principles of ^be great old party and have carried her to victory should not be entire- iy ignored and that tbelr opinions es ns also that every party, to live, must have a' principle bas^ upon moral right. It teaches ns that the leaders in this campaign were in competent, especially when it comes down to local affairs. It is a forci ble repetition of that often taught lesson that a mass of inexperienced unoducatod men cannot successfully cope with the shrewdest and cnl- turod though they be few. It tcacb- oe us that there are some things in which our best experienced and cnl- tured men must come to tbe ftont That there are some places which absolutely require learning in let ters. In short that our yonug men must come to the front ALL RIOHT NOW. We r^ret very much that we have ever had cause to put ourself in an unpleasant attitude, and have' been looked upon ae in opposition (o the interests of our own race. We do not claim to be iofallable^ wo are liable to commit errors, and of coarse do commit errors very often. We tmst all the errors we commit will be looked .upon as errors of tbe head and not of the heart As we have often said before, it is, and t^ll be onr intention to labor for the good of onr race. In doing ao we cannot follow at all times, and when we do follow we would like to know that the jndgment of the peraons whom we follow is better tban onr rn. We have Jnst passed throogh hqatad eampalgn.

Ibring about not like to sny so, bi.l \rc saw some ivooks ago tliat more Republican votes were lo bo ]ott iit tliis county, than would be made up by tbe lib- erala. We are all forcinyo admit it now. Two years ago we needed to change leee tban fifty votes to carry this county. But tbe brightoat thought now is, this is not the lost time, and we hope to be right and alltogether in tbe next election. We are still hopeful, and realize that wc have a very important work before us, and shall do it the beat wo know how, and we ask tbe kind assist ance of all lovers of peace and pros perity and friends to the colored race. Our woik is in tbe general upbuilding of our people in tbei: morals, intellect, and in acquiring properly. We are giad the election is over, but deplore the result. N. W. Harlleo is elected Register ofDeeds of Richmond county by handsome majority. Robeson county went republican l&O majority Cumberiand elected part Demo cratic and part repablican ticket Cabarms gave over 600 democrat ic majority. Anson, Union and Stanley went as usual—democraticc. Gaston went democratic. The first, third and seventh districts of North Carolina are etill in doubt with the chances against the demo crats. ^rntnclln's SnilU.

A meeting ofjtbc studenU of the Columbia Law wbool was bold in the Columbia Law building Monday evening to take action in regard to the presence of a colored student, Mr. S, L. Williams, a graduate of Ann Arbor Univorsil}’and a mem ber of tbe junior class in the law school. For some time past a clique, who considered themselves affronted by Mr. Williams bciug allourod to remaiftin the school, have been agi- a was called to sott'o the question. There was a very full attendance of students, snd an organization was had by calling Mr. William Land- voighttotheebair. A resolution was introduced, which,after a frothy pre amble, closed with tbo resolve “that a committee of throe be appointed to wait upon tbo faculty of the insti tution snd request the expulsion of tbe negro from the University." This was supported by an old-fash ioned, ante-Mllum speech from one of the disgruntied. JUST nXBX THE SXHBIBLt HAyOBITT of those proeent took hold of tbe case, and a snbstitute was offered roclUng that "tbe negro by bis gen- tlemanly eondact and excellent abil ity was entitled to a seat in Colum bia or any other college." Amid a storm of applause anef choem the Bubstituto was adopted vitboot a dissenting vote, much to tbe dis- gust of th^e two or three scions of first families who bad been anxious to secure different action. Then the cautery was applied by tbe adoption of a motion that snob stn- dents as were afraid to comp^ in tellectually with tbo colored stu dent had CK»t seek a school where they wonid be In the midet of their peers. This was a settler, and tbe advocates of color line found them selves flattened out tbin by the vig orous manner In which tbeir petty •ofaeme HAS BXEK SAT DOWH CFOX. It is nroper to state that neariy all the students in the Columbia law •obool have arrived at man’s estate, many of thorn being rotors io tbe Statoe in which they reoide, and hence tbeir action hoi* much more weight tban would he acoorded to the deliberations of a lot of sobool boyA After tbo aunwnary manner in which tbe raco Isiuo was disposed of by them it is not probable that it will again crop oot in Celnmbia law eebooi. It may also be said that Mr. WiUiam'a eoior, speaking homo- etmatfaleally, has atoenuated to a oegM that requires that extra ■SBBitivenesa only to be found in Ant-fomilr “niooompoopa" to dte oam \t.— nn$Ki»gt9n BepviUean. ..
