THURSDAY, JANUARY 1611879.
GOV. VASCE OUR HOT SEXATOB,
if not surprising, anil the. gratification
attending th intelligent that Gov.
Vance was last night nominated by the
Democratic caucus for United States
Senator, is increased by the knowledge
of the unanimity of the action. This is
glory enough for one day, and thereto no
danger in this case of the recurrence of
a former mishap. The Democratic par
ty has declared its will in the premises
and that will will be enforced.
We are glad indeed that Gov. Vance
is to be our next Senator; we are glad
der still that the party has reasserted
MltfATOR MERRIMQ.VS DEI LIXATIOX.
Our readers have already been in
formed of Senator Merrimun's declina
tion as a candidate for the United States
senatorship, before the Legislature, but
we present below the letter which was
iead before the caucus of the Demo
cratic members of that body, annoimc
the fact :
Raleigh. Jan. 13, 170.
To the Democratic Caucus :
My friends have ascertained that
whatever may be the popular desire for
my re-election to the Senate of the
United States, causes and influences
have been brought to bear that will pre
vent my re-election.
1 have no desire to disturb the quiet
of the Democratic party by further con
test over the senatorsnip. ana, nence,
beer my friends not to mention my
namft further now in that connection.
I beg to express my inc&t' grateful
thanks to friends m and out of the Leg
islature who so generously and earn
estly manifested interest in my behalf,
1 can never cease to remember them
with feelings of pleasure and deepest
gratitude, and l venture to trust mat
they will not have occasion to regret
the confidence that they have reposed
m me. A. S. merrimon.
If, as stated in the letter, Senator
Merrimon's actual desire was "not to
disturb" the quiet and harmony of the
Democratic party by further contest
over the senatorship" his course is patri
otic, and deserves to be mentioned in
terms of praise, aud if there were other
reasons. Gov. Vance's friends in their
hour of triumph, cannot afford to boast
over the discomfiture of Senator Mer
rimon's friends. We have said, and we
believe that the failure to elect Vance
to the Senate would disrupt and disor
ganize the Democratic party, but now
that Senator Merrimon and his friends
have done so much to avoid the impend
ing evil. Gov. Vance's friends can do
no less than recognize the fact, and
by letting the dead past bury its own
dead, all re-united and re-encouraged,
worK tor the success or the vital prin
ciples of our party, which means whole
some and just laws for the people ; the
revivification of that prosperity through
out the State which is the hope and aim
of all, and the rehabilitation of. the ohl
commonwealth, in all the rowers aid
prerogatives, which belong properlyto
one of the original thirteen American
colonies, which spent the blood and
treasure or its people; to estaDlisn and
perpetuate this great American Union
of co-equal and co-ordinate States.

dretta, on the Syrian coast of the Medi
terranean, by Turkey to England, is In-,
dicative of the purpose of the latter
power to hasten the construction of the
proposed railroad from the Mediterran

feasible route is from Alexandretta to
Aljppb, and thence to Birijik, the head
of navigation on the Euphrates, and
thence by Nmevah to Bagdad and Bas
soraliand Kurrachee, and from there
to connect with the East India railroad
system." It is about 500 miles from
Alexandretta to Bagdad, and from Bag
dad to Kurrachee 1,900 miles. The cost
of "the railroad is estimated at from
030,000,000 to $160)00,000, and it will be
built for strategic reasons alone, and

amassed so rapidly in stock operations. Messrs.
Lawrence 4 Co.. Bankers, N. Y., have just publish
ed "two unerring rules for success," and full de
tails, so that any one can operate. Mailed free.
Their new comDinanon system oi aeanng in stocks
is wonderfully profitable. By this method thous

whole, thus securing to each shareholder all the
advantages of vast capital and best skill. Profits

Ease Attainable by the Bbenmatie.
Yes, although they may despair oi relief, it Is
attainable by rheumatic sufferers, for there is a
remedy which carries oft, by means of increased
activity of the kidneys Important channels for
blood purification the acrid element to which
pathologists the most eminent attribute the painful
symptoms a theory completely borne out by urin
ary analysis. - The name of this grand depurent is
Hos tetters, a preparation likewise celebrated as a
remedy for constipation, which causer contamina
tion of the blood with the bile and a oertaln
means of relief in dyspepsia, fever and ague, and
nervous ailments. It is, perhaps, the finest tonic
extant, and is highly recommended as a medicinal
stimulant by distinguished physicians and analysts
who pronounce it to be eminently pure and very
beneficial. The press also endorses it.
Erery Moment's Wonderflil Work.
Every moment that we hve the work of destruc
tion never ceases among what Is scientifically call
ed "the tissues" of which our bodies are composed.
Every moment, if we are in health, the work of re
pairing this destructive process goes on with equal
pace. When the vital force is great, more vigor is
given to the blood and muscular fibre than the or
dinary wear and tear of existence uses up. When
the vital force fails from any cause, there ensues a
wasting away, which If not arrested, ends in decay
and death. Physicians all declare that when these
symptoms of decline set in. the only certain reme
dy is Cod Liver OIL But their patients, with al
most equal unanimity, say that Cod Liver Gil is "so
nasty" they cannot take it The only resource left
is to obtain Scott's Emulsion of the Oil with the
Hypophosphltes of Lline and Soda. This is alto
gether tree from disagreeable taste and odor, and
is an unequalled tonic, for the nerves and brain.
