We again congratulate the people of
North Carolina on the career of peace,
prosperity and good government on
which she entered after tho inauguration
of a Democratic Stale administration
and which has beep unbroken for so
many years since ; upon the just and
impartial enforcement of the laws ; upon
the ctlicieucy of our common school sys
tem, and the great progress made in
popular education ; and upon tho gener
al improvement and enterprise manifes
ted in ovcty portion of thn state. And
wo again challenge a comparison be
ween this state of things and tho crimes,
outrages and scandals which attended
Republican ascendancy in our borders ;
and we pledge ourselves to exert in the
future, as we have done in tho past, our
best efToftfto promote the material in
terests of all sections of the State.
Affirming our adheronco to Demo
cratic principles as heretofore enuncia
ted in the platforms of the party, it is
Resolved, That we regard a free and
fair expression of the public will at the
ballotbox as the ouly surcmeans ol pre
serving our free American institutions,
and that the corrupt and corrupting use
of Federal patronage, in influencing and
controlling elections is dangerous to the
liberties of the State aud the Union.
Resolved, That we arc in favor of the
unconditional and immediate abolition
of the whole internal revenue system,
as an intolerable burden, a standing
mcance to tho freedom of elections, and
a source of great annoyance aud corrup
tion in its practical operation.
Rsolved, That uo government has a
right to bucden its people with taxes
beyond the amount required to pay its
necessary Expenses and gradually extin
guish its publij debt. Anil that when
ever the revenues, however, derived,
exceed this amount, they should be re
duced so as to avoid a surplus in the
treasury. We therefore) urge upon our
Senators aud Representatives in Con
gress to exert themselves hi favor of
such legislation as will secure this end.
Resolved, that with respect to the
tariff we reaffirm the life long and fun
damental principles of the party as de
clared iu the National Democratic plat
forms and that the details of the meth
od by which the constitutional revenue
tariff shall be gradually reached, arc
subjeots which tho party's representa
tives at the federal capital must bo trus
ted to adjust; but iu our opinion the
duties on foreign importations should be
levied for tho production of publie rev
enue, and the discriminations in its
adjustment should be such as would
place the highest rates on luxuiios and
the lowest on tho necessaries of life,
distribute as equally as possible the
burdens of taxation aud confer tho great
est good to tho greatest number of the
Resolved, That the course of the Dem
ocratic party in furtherance of popular
education, by efficient public schools in
all sections, and the establishment, of
graded and normal schools in the larger
towns aud accessible centers, is a suffi
cient guarantee that wo favor tho edu
cation of all classes of our people and
we will promote and improvo the pres
ent educational advantages so far as it
can be done without burdening tho peo
ple by excessive taxation.
And wheras, Ihero is now moro
than a hundred millions of dollars in
the treasury of the United States wrung
from the pockets of tho people by unjust
taxation on the part of tho Republieau
party i therefore,
Resolved, That to will accept such
distribution of said surplus revenues of
tho governmett for educational purpo
ses as may be made by the Congress of
tho United States: provided it/ways, thai
the sajie shall bo disbursed by State
agents, and not accompanied bv objec
tionable features and embarrassing con
Resolved, That it is due to the white
so cbiof oui eastern counties, who have
ooni m erfully borne tlicr share of our
som on burdens, that the present or
cou« other equally effective system of
de.nty government shall be maintain
Resolved That in view of tho existing
and increasing harmony aud kindly feel
ing between the two races in this State,
and a similar condition of things which
we believe to exist generally in ether
Southern States, wo doprecato the at
tempt of tho Republican party, in its
recent platform at Chicago, to forco
civil rights as a living issue, and we de
nounce it as a tire brand and a hypo
critical expression of interest in tho
blaok race, a wanton iusult to tho whites
of theSouth, and tending to «tir up strife
between the now friendly raeos.

This country ia filled with ucarl;
sixty millions of human beings active in
tho pursuits of peace, every indiriduul
of whom is tt tribute payer to this gov
ernment. That tho administration
should bo managed mth a view to mak
ing the burdens of these millions—tho
greater portion of whom aro struggling
foi a bare subsistence—as light ax pos
sible consistent with the requirements
of good government admits of no argu
ment. The first step necessary to such
government is to place an honest tnau
at the head of it who possesses the pow

and which will result in the greatest
good to tiie country Road Blaine's

The time has come far the Southern
people to be appreciating the importance
of having their boys, aye and their girls
too, educated more practically for
greater usefulness in life ; for the time
has come when tho material advantages
of tho South require such education as
can only be obtained in piactical schools
to educe the piofits aud benefits to be
reasonably expected from them j and if
the Southern people thcmsclve are to be
unequaled :o the development of their re
sources and '.he utilization of their own
opportunities, we may bo assured that.

North Carolina's rocord, from the
earliest of our annals, has shed lustre
on the brightest pages of America's
glory and fame. Iler people arc iich

the opportunities and resources of the
present. They are favored with the
most inspiring promises of an inviting
future, which is ail aglow with tho most
brilliant progress that has marked any
period in the world's history. Look in
whatovei direction wo may, it is ovi

are the fruits of an administration of

Drying fruit a pleasutc instead of
| drudgery. No trouble to dry fruit with
my Patent, Solur, l'ruit aud Vegetable
Dryer. It dries rapidly, ou both side
alike, and all uvcr at tho same time
it has 110 equal for drying bright fruit
as there is no scorching or smoking the
fruit, no sticking, no expense for wood
or water, no vuste, as it dries all the
juices and sugary matter iu the fruit. It
is not only the best drier for drying
peaches aud apples, but also for all tho
small fruits, sweet putatocs, snap beans,
or anything that you wish to dry quick
in the sun, as prin-ing leaves of tobacco
&0., as any intelligent person will know
at once who sees it. It is made of thin
muslin cloth, such as is used for cover
ing plant beds, streiehed over a light
frame made of laths, with a tiu reflector
so arranged as to throw tho rays of the
sun over the cloth. Tho material for
making one dryer 33 inches wide aud 10
feet long costs less than one dollar and
will weigh about 28 lbs. Anybody that
has seen one, or wish my printod in
structions how to make, use &c., can
make it in a few hours. Three dryers
is about as many as an ordinary family
can manage. The combined heat of
the sun aud rcflecttr causes a contin
ual upward current of air to draw up
through the cloth which causes the fruit
to dry rapidly. Set the drier iu the
shade, pt.iee tho fruit on the cloth and
then set it out in the sun, square with
the rays, then in about two hours lift
one eud around so as to bring it square
with the sun is all you have to do until
the fruit is dry. It will dry sliced fruit
iu about half a day. Fruit dried on

cover the fruit you wish to use with
boiling water, just enough to cover it,
and let it stand 30 or 40 minutes, then
put the water with tho fruit iuto your
pie, sweeten and flour to taste and baked
aud you will find it equal to green fruit
pie in flavor and color, and I think
better than when tho fruit i» put ub
in cans. The above dryer and part
