At \l'a(Ics- boro we fouiul Hcv. (loik-n in the ■ midst of a sncccisful revival. He has closed and rcporli a goud nunibc cuDverts and .locc-'iiuiii both at tbc - Wadcsboro and i^iiuvdsboro chureb. Mr. Sandj- Ingram is Kueccoding with his new store. Miss i^allic Ilali’s canary died and left her a mourner. Tbc brown stone tjuarry is producing nbnndoncc of fine stone and extra trains oro running almost daily linuling it North. f AtClarkton wc met lion .John New ell, Mr. Wm. Jones and other well-to- do colored men who readily subscrib ed to the MjcssEXtiim. At Elisabethtown we met nearly two thousand people, who were here to witness, the laying of the corner stone and dedication of Mt Zion A. M. E. Z. church, built by llcv. J. W. Bavis. Tbc county teachers institute was in session at the same time. There were acvcrnl teachers from Brunswick and Sampson eannlics, about fifty in «11. The institute was conducted by Prof. J. W. .Tiicobs, who taught a spring and summer normal here. Hon. J. C. Dancy delivered the address at the ehnrcb- We were the guest of Jliss Mary E. Shaw and were well cared for. . This is tbc eonnly s^t of Bladen county, but scemito be on arapid de cline. Wc mot many strangers, many handsome ynnng ladie.H und intelligent young men and .sccorcd a long list of subscribers. In Wilmington wc fonml (lie »nc- cbanics as busy as bees. The city seems to be on a building boom. The cotton trade is fairly opened. Wc visited St. I.ukos and St Slcpliens church. St Stephens i» the fine.st church in the .Stale, It i* simply grand. Wc would not attempt a des cription. Uov. .A. J. Cliainbcrs is ii.s ■pastor. Wo made a number of pleas ant calif, but must omit all pursnnals in these notes. MEX SHOT II0W5 LIKE IKKIS. A few weeks ago nc had occasion to refer to Dr. Wilder and Mr. Mc- W'-irler cliasiiig and .'liootiiig among eolnrml wen promiscuously. These men (Wihlcr and McWiiirlcr) were not even jirnscculi’d by the .‘»l:ile, but sueveeded in having their victims piiii- ishuJ. But now we have a more serious case: Uobl. ilrii-r. a colored man, is shot down in the road like a deer, by two white men. each of them firing a double-harrcUod shot-gun. (irit-r wa.s filled willi >-1101 and instant ly killfil. Now are these men to he trt'Uled as the ulhersV If so. as (heir victim is dead, they may get his near est relatives, have them put in jail, or banish th^u from tbc ooiinty. Is (here DO redress for crime committed hy a white man against a Hack man? Wc have ever opposed the colored mao's leaving the South, hut if this intolerable state of affairs is not changed, something must be done to gat the oulired mao away. This thing ihoold not and cannot be stond much longer. We are fur peace oil (|ic time, but if we cannot have sumc- tfaiag nearer justice, let as have a peaceable migrating expedition 4o Kansaa, California, 31cxioo. .Africa, «r any place else where «mr lives will be epared. The laws of onr State may be Justly CMiatritetcd, but if they are to be ad- ttinistored in the intorcat of one race, againat the other, then let ns go where tba laws arc justly adiDinistcn.-l, if it Hlly to remain 'in a country where onl lives arc considered of no value, and mch take up their guns and shoot ub down and go on as thoogh nothing had happened. Our daily press speak erf some of them lightly and some they don't menttbn. White men arc able to take care of themselves: A majority of the white men arc (located ; a majority of tbc colored men ore ex-slaves. If a coTor- ed man meets a white man on e}ual terms and gets the best of him. he is mobbed like a liigliwaytuan', tliougli the white inao is wholly in fault, and tbc colored man simply defends him self. Colored men, as a general thing, will not stond up to and pro tect encli other against mob law, and flien they dn, they have the judge, ^ury, lawyer and public sentiment agaiii.st them—public sentiment hav ing been carefully ./ixi-J by llie while press. igritlioii scheme is lieiiig agitated in this State, .-mil nurl leading men hare no political offices to fight each oUicr over, we ask them to take these bnlchcrics in roniidcralioii and see in wliat way it ran be reme died, If laws arc made in North Cariilina to piiniili colored men only, then wc want to know it. While wc licHcvc in a manly indc- ^ndciiee. and a proper exhibition >f{ discretion and manhood, wc arc the : last to iiiiinunte nr eiicourngc relalia-. wc Can't gctprolectimi here, j whers wc can got it. Wc | cannot afford to do evil for evil. God ’ will not be pleased with it. He gave' tbc colored man'a better soul tiinn | that. Even our slave fathers, when | left in charge of "old inissns, tlic | children, and the farm”—while the; master was fighting to keep us in | bondage—prayed to God fi>r freedom , and (oiled to feed the family, the sol- | dier and himself.

G, base iitgrali-| Fortune's league has never been | mentioned in these columns, b we did not understand it, ncitln wc favor nuv kind of organization that eutild m.nkc the colored man any mure a political slave ihnii he has been. In -“hni t, wc feared the league ; iiut il is claimed it will protcel the cidored man. Is that so ? Then let «. c.m- siil-T (he league. Since we learn from lln- iiulilislied pliin th.i( it is not eonfini-(l tu any race, sex or pdfty. wi> are willing to consider it. i.el Mr. Fortune send thousands of copies of the form to leading meu and women in the South.
