THE NEW ADMINISTRATION OF
r. : NORTH CAROLINA. -
The Inauguration of the State offi
cers .? elected iri August last takes
place ' at Raleigh to-day. Tod R.
Caldwell will be sworn in'as Gover
nor for the next four years : Curtis
JI.,Brogdenj as Lieutenant Gover
nor David - Jenkins as Treasurer;
William II. Howerton, jxs Secretary
of State ; Tazewell L. Hargrove, as
Attorney General ; and John Reilly,
as Auditor. : . -These
officers are all thoroughly
Republican, of course; but they are
not thoroughly-corrupt and unprin
cipled as are most of - the Radical
officials who have proven curses to
the South since the ; war. On the
contrary they are men of fair abili
ties, and for .the most part disposed
to be honest and -just in their deal
ings, either as private individuals or
as public officials. Judging from the
character and past careers of the
pnien, we do not think they will prove
derelict to the duties which by their
inauguration to-day will devolve up
on them as officers' of our State
Crqvejrnrn ent for the next four years
There is no good, substantial reason
to believe Jhat they will be other
wise than faithful to" the trusts re
posed in them, ' and honest in the
conduct of the alters and things
appertaining to the official stations
.wbih they arel ejected to fill. Let
lis jwlulge irTthis hope, at all events;
and however much ive may dislike
to see inaugurated an administra
tion chosen by negroes and a small
proportion only of the white popu
lation of the fetate, still let us not
heap upon them the severe censures
which Southern Radicals, with some
few exceptions, richly deserve.
p &pecb Payments. -The .financial
circles orthe North- are just now
sinuch agitated over the subject 01
the resumption of (specie payments.
Leading financiers suggest a practi
cal way of bringing about this de
sirable improvement in the financial
policy of the government. It is to
Amend the National Banking Law,
no as to compel Ihe national banls
to gradually change the reserves
now required of them to gold, until
a sufficient amount of specie hap
1 j ' t . . .
ueen accumuiatea to mate specief
In furtherance of this purpose, it'
is suggested that as fast as gold is
accumulated and Government notes
or greenbacks are liberated, the lat
ter be withdrawn. Thus a gold re
serve will be provided for ultimate
resumption, and the volume of the
paper currency which is now afloat
will be gradually reduced, until it
reaches a poinjhriearer par value.
, . This great and important change
in the financial condition of the
United States is likely to be one of
the niost prominent measures inau-,
guraleUkJurihg Grant's second term,
andill redound largely to the ad
Tan tage of the country."
TYRANNY IN LOUISIANA.
The latest feature in the despotic
7; treatment of Louisiana, is the sup
pression of , the New Orleans" Times,
because of its denunciation of the
negro '.usurpers, and Durell, the Fed-
eral Judge who is in sympathy with
them, and by - whose 'agency , they
were; able to -.seize the .State, and
hold.it. , - V
The following succinct statement
of the facta will enable our,, readers
to form an idea of the ., enormity .of
this crime, against the freedom of
the press : . '' ': ,
The facts of the case, briefly sta
ted, are these : . During the war the
proprietor of the Times, Mr. .Weed,
waa in business with a man named
. McKee, and in the course of some
trarisaction'became indebted to him
for $1,500.-This obligatiofTwas nev
er presented ; its payment was never
demanded. .The Times was doing a
large and prosperous business, was
free from all liabilities an ( .. no v" n or
its proprietor a handsome -profit.
McKee became one of the tools of
, vuovuuj iiuusc, itxiu uuriug tne
; .progress of the war " between War
moth?; and Kello?r: Mr. Wv1 vLraa
,L notified by obscure threats that un
A less his paper ceased'its attacks upon
v Judge Durell, proceedings would be
through him. No attention was
given these? communications ; the
, denunciations of Durell continued
and the latter being unable' to in
timidate, determined to suppress the
obnoxious journal. This, under the
- .practice which he -allowed, was easi
ly and promptly, accomplished, Mc
: cmade10attl Weed owed him
. . $l,o00, and was about ta fly from the
city or conceal his effects. Upon
this affidavit Uurell issued an order
- seizing all the property and material
of the Times worth more than $100
. 000-rand compelling the suspension
of tne paper. In vain did Mr. Weed
offer to pay the amount'' demanded,
, and a large sura - in. e.xooss for costs
-gnd : lawyers' fee.-- McKee replied
. j-nai no amount could induce him
19 release the establish ment."
The Dnirell Coup D'EtatTIxe! -Origin
of this Method of Revolution.
The question, whether the govern
ment of any of the States of this con
federacy can be overturned by an en-
terlocutory order in a chancery pro
ceeding, begina to interest the peo
ple 01 the other btates: Ihis inter
est will doubtlesrf extend to foreign
countries. ; It is such a startling
novelty that, whether our poor State
ever obtains any relief for the great
calamity which, has fallen upon her,
or not, there can be no doubt that
she will acquire thereby a- very large
and extensive notoriety Louisiana
will thus become conspicuous before
the world as the first subject of a
new mode of revolutionizing a State
and ; enslaving a people. The -old
process was by the strong hand of a
popular chieftain at the head of a
disciplined and devoted band j or by
the sudden uprising of a mob or fact
ion; or through the slow and systema
tic approaches of a wily anoVcunning
tyrant. But here we have the next
great advance in human science and
progress after steam,' telegraph arid
railroads, to wit, that of working' a
revolution by an interlocutory order
It is an extraordinary invention.
Nothing could ' be more simple or
more effective. You have only 1 to
be a candidate for some office and be
beaten, and then go before a chancel
ldr; like Durrell, (if such another
can be found), and swear through
forty pages of foolscap, that if some
ten thousand persons, who did not
vote or register, had all voted for
yon; you would have been elected,
and then forthwith,' an order m.
ciyincery issues to tne muitarv au
thority to place von in the office to
which you ought to have been elect-
ea, out were not.
This is anuncolored statement of
Durrell's new svstem of revolution.
It is the cheapest and easiest mode
ever employed to accomplish such
ends. New Orleans Times. .
Whitelaw Reid, the editor of the
New York Tribune, was bom in the
small village of Cedarville, Greene

became Washington correspondent
of the Cincinnati Gazette, ' and won
considerable reputation. At the
breaking out of the rebellion he act
ed as war correspondent of the same
ournal, and penned some of the
most vividt and thrilling battle-de
scriptions ever written. About three
years since be was appointed assist

His career has been one of remark

01 twelve years he has. reached the

and which was totally destroyed by
fire on Saturday morning.- was a
huge wooden frame covered over in

shape was a quadrilateral, with a
tower at the southwest corner of the
porch, fronting , on Schermerborn
street. In this tower hung the bell.
which weighed' 2,000 pounds. The
interior was semi-circular, ' present
ing ? the appearance . of ' an ' amphi-'
theatre. The roof was supported by
a number of slender wooden columns.
All the pews were on the floor, there
being no gallery. The building was
a novelty in church : architecture.
and was supposed to be 7 thoroughly
protected against any of the ordinary
probabilies of danger from fire. It
was capable of seating 3,500 people,

The organ was a magnificient in

first musical jubilee - in Boston. Its
original cost was 510,000, but it was
procured for the Tabernacle after - it
had completed its service ; at the
ubilee for $10,000. The church
building and lot on which it was
situated cost $100,000, of which $25,

Virginia, aiid..JTorth Carolina, Troops,
In relation to the controversy now
going on as to the' Virginia and
Nprth Carolina:,, troops during the
late war, the Wilmington Journal, kt-
ter -quoting 't-n. portion of General
Barringer's letter, says : , ' V
Having put upon record the North
Carolina side of the question, we feel
very much inclined to ' yield to the
suggestion of the Petersburg Appeal,

Indeed, we scarcely know how to re
fuse anything to one who recalls so
pleasantly and gracefiilly - th e nrem a

-The Appeal says : We ;remember

tile splendid gallantry "whicli thev
displayed in that action. So let the

then fought and fell, and the claims
of those who survive them, be fitly
rem embered and honored by us now.
It ill becomes us either to sound the
trumpet of our own praise or to de
tract irom the honors which are due

sacred cause. Let all voices'of dis
cord be hushed, and let r Virginians L
be proud of the fam e .which belongs

The plea of insanity in criminal
cases is likely to fare hard in .Illi
nois. It does not matter much to
the criminal, however... as. at the
present day, to use a homely phrase,
me, lawyers Jtnow in any- triCKS tnat
are - worth two of : that. - Insanity
may serve " on occasion, hut is not
the reliance it was in olden times.
Illinois is, therefore,; somewhat Jate
in dealing with the subject, but her
proposed law is an excellent one.; If
a jury acquits a man of murder as
insane, he is certainly a sufficiehtly
dangerous lunatic to be placed in
safe keeping. A bill now before the
Legislature of Illinois provides that
whenever an indicted ' . person - is
found not giiilty by ; reason of his
temporary insanity the Court shall
