TUESDAY. JANUARY 7, 1879.
JtECTlAI KFESTKJATI0S3 '.'
In the course of a few days, we will
begin to b regaled with the reports of
the proceedings of the Teller congress
ional committee Which has gone to
New Orleans under Mr Blaine's resolu
tion to investigate alleged frauds in the
South, perpetrated in connection with
the late congressional elections. ' New
Eliza Pinkstons will spring up all
around the pathway of this committee,
and it will make large additions to the
already large stock of political cam
paign literature. Evidence, true and
false, some of it obtained legitimately
but the greater part of it the result of
perjury and subornation of perjury,
will fill pages of the forthcoming re
port to Congress all going to show
that the Goddess of Liberty flees from
the South at the first blast of the fog
horn of the political campaign, no more
to' return until the perilous times of
elections are past ; and some of this tes
timony will be in general terms and
some of it specific as to alleged facts.
It is safe to say that it will not differ in
any material particular from the evi
dence heretofore taken as to the same
subject; and what will be the result?
Nothing. Mr Blaine never intended
that anybody should be punished for
the election "outrages" which this com
mittee was organized to manufacture ;
it was only designed to convince the
North of the fact that the Southern
Democrats make perpetual war upon
all those citizens of these States
who are not of their way of thinking,
and Mr. Thurmon, when the resolution
was under discussion in the Senate,
very Wisely so amended it as that all
the political capital which should be
made by this investigation should not
be made by the Republicans at the ex
pense of the Democrats, but that the
thing should be made reciprocal, so to
speak. To this end the committee,
when it finishes its work in the South,
will proceed to Philadelphia, New
York and probably to Boston, and at
these places the Democratic members
of the committee will cross-examine
the witnesses, and before the thing is
finished and an average is struck, it
will be found that more fraud and in
timidation has been practiced by the
Radicals of the North than by the
Democrats of the South. Thus we will
have a stand-off. Whatever advantage
there is in the case will undoubtedly
be with the Democrats, and the more
so the fuller the investigation ; but af
ter all, nothing practical will have been
accomplished, and the public will
know no more and believe no more
than it now knows and believes, since
the charges and counter-charges have
already been made by the press, and
the true sifted out of the false. At the
same time the $20,000 which was ille
gally wrested from the treasury for the
purposes of this investigation will have
been spent, and there will be to show
for it just nothing.
This election investigation business
i3 fast degenerating into a farce "and
this last promises the most conspicuous
burlesque of them all. There are laws
ample to punish all tfiose who inter
fere with or obstruct in any manner
the freedom of elections, and until
these are abrogated the services of
congressional committees need hardly
be invoked, except from better cause
than has yet been made apparent. The
Republican party, However, forts own
selfish and partisan purposes, inspired
the present one, calculating, perhaps
that the Democrats in Congress would
oppose and in some manner defeat it,
and thereby give to the country the
impression thatit was afraid to have
the truth known; or otherwise, not
calculating that the Democrats would
move the amendment which subse
quently opened up the whole field for
investigation. At all events, and what
ever may have been their calculations,
the country realizes ' that this is an
investigation set on foot by the Repub
licans ; the burden of proof is upon
them, and it will be theirs to bear the
ridicule which will attend the ultimate
failure of this, movement which was
set on foot with so great a flourish of
It is almost unnecessary to tell the
reader that the communication in
reference to Davidson College, which
we copy elsewhere from the North
Carolina Presbyterian, is from the pen
of Ret. E. H. : Harding, i the ac
complished "pastor of the Second Pres
byterian church of this city still to
say so will render the assurance of its
being read doubly sure. Mr. Harding
is a devoted friend of Davidson College
and in this communication he gives
cogent reasons "for the faith that is in
him." The article isv not in the usual
vein of those who write to "puff any
given institution, person or object; it is
forcible and pungent and the positions
taken in regard to this institution are
supported by facts and the writer, in
expressing his own opinions,' fortifies
himself with the opinions of others.

How It Pays to Make the Standard Silver Dolla ?.
Wash. Cor. Baltimore Sun.
The mint bureau yesterday turned in
to the treasury 8575,000 as profits accru
ing to the government from the coin
age of the standard silver dollar during
the past three weeks. This amount was
the net profit after buying the silver for
coinage, paying for transportation, and
allowing for wasting in the process ot
coining. Since the commencement of
the coinage of the standard dollar the
government has profited between the
legal tender value and the real value of
the bullion which it contains to the
amount of about $1,600,000.

RETROSPECTlTE RETROSPECT IV
In looking back over the business of the year
now just ending, I feel very thankful to my many
friends and the public generally, for the liberal
support they have given me In my efforts to supply
the wants our city with a FIRST-CLASS Grocery,
where anything in the grocery line can be found,
and I flatter myself that I have filled the want to
the entire satisfaction of my numerous patrons.
In the future, as in the past, I propose to keep a
strictly first-class stock of
FANCY AND HEAVY GROCERIES,
and assure the public thai Co effort of mine shall
be spared to please, ' and I ahal always keep on
hand the best and most complete stock that the
demands of my customers may require, and now
call attention to ' he fact that I have the agency
here for the celebrated
BRIDGE WATER FAMILY FLOUR,
the best in America, as attested by the fact of its
"having receivd the first silver medal at Paris. I
have also lust received 25 barrels of STONEWALL
Family Flour, and 20 barrels of Baltimore Family
Flour, both of which are very good flours equal to
any sold in this market, except Brldgewater.
Also something very nice in the way of Family
Cheese, Pickled Pigs' Tongue and many other
novelties. Very Respectfully,
I tn g leave to return my sincere thanks to my
many litends who bestowed their patronage on me
In my new quarters with Mr. Davidson,-and promis
ing by strict attention and fair dealing to merit it
hi the future I solicit a continuance of the same.
