WEDNESDAY, JANTf ABY 22. 1-
GOV. VANCE ELECTED TO THE SENATE.
vntfls nresent Jie received ilO.' Two
Republicans split off from their caucus
and voted for Judge Merrimon, and the
Ishmaelite from Orange voted for J udge
Ashe. The Democratic vote was solid
for Gov. Vance.
We congratulate the party, the State
and the country : Upon 'the result the
party because it has re-asserted its su
premacy; the State, because the will of
its people has been enforced ; the coun
try because another national man will
be added to the councils of the nation.
The consummation which has just
been achieved is one which we had de
voutly hoped for, not only because Gov.
Vance's election to the Senate just at
this time is a stroke of retributive jus
tice, but because we believe him to be
our foremost man. He is a man of
great mental force, of great eloquence
and resources; he is a student and a
scholar ; a statesman and a philanthrop
ist ; as a debater he is the peer of any of
those whom he will sit amongst ; he is
at once a brilliant and a profound man ;
lie is -one: who writes and speaks
equally well; he is a magnetic man, and
he is a humorist, yet his humor is one
of the least of his faculties. In our
opinion he is the greatest North Caro
linian of to-day , and in all that goes to
make up a representative man, the one
who, in the national Senate, will reflect
the greatest honor upon himself and his
Gov. Vance was entitled to this honor
if any man can be said to be entitled to
anything at the hands of the public.
The people had twice before named
him for thi station,; and for it he was
this,., f or , Jthe,, third, time, the public
choice. For him to have been defeated
would have been for the popular will to
have been jthwarted,( .,
We value ' his election as a victory
ovet the Raleigh ring which presumes
to control North Carolina politics. T 1
We value it as the death-blovof in
dependentism, and as a victory of the
party over the politicians.
We value it as a victory for that pa
triotism which holds up its 'head 'in
dark as well as bright days and which
never seeks promotion by by-ways and
We value it as a victory over all the
Radical hosts, whose present con
gratulations of hitnttjioiii thej .hate
most heartily, too closely resemble the
cringings of the whipped dog to excite
We value it as the the final recogni
tion of the faithful servant who has
served his people lonr without re
ward. We value it most of all thoiigh, as the
party's re-assertion of its integrity and
as its rebuke to those who are equally
ready to accept its -honors' and defy its
There are many other .reasons which
induce us to rejoice and be exceeding
gl ad over the result of yesterday's bal-
ioting, out in this nour or joyousness
we would not wound anylody's feel
ings, nor would we encounter the risk
of disturbing the "harmony at the cen
tre." " ' ' " "
We again congratulate the party and
the people and proiose three cheers for
Senator Vance and the Organized Demo
cracy. STATE. AKD FEDERAL RIGHTS.
The Virgihia Senate committee; oh
Federal , reXatins has submitted a
lengthy report, with resolutions, in re
gard to the alleged usurpation of State
rights by Federal Judge Rives, of the
western district ojE Virginia. The reso
lutions declare that the constitution of
the United States is in as full force and
vigor as when first ratified; that Vir
ginia, in re-entering the Union after the
civil var, resumed all her relations to
the government on perfect equalitv
with every other State; that the United
States can only exercise the powers del
egated to them in the constitution ; that
the United, States have only the right
to prevent the exercise by the Stateslof
powers prohibited to them by the con
stitution, by pronouncing such forbid
den action t void through the judicial
power, but in ho case cam the United
States undertake to 'pei form any duty
,. which it is tncdmbent upon the State
to perform ; that therefore all acts of
Congress, and particularly those known
a$ the civil rights bill and the enforce
ment act, which attempt or profess to
attempt t& provide for the performance
by the United States of duties and obli
gations belonging, to the JStates, are un
constitutional and void, and that the
action of Judge i Hives in assuming juris
diction of the case of the colored men,
Lee h and Burwell Reynolds, charged
with crime against the laws of, the,
State, is unwarranted, and is destruc
tive or tne rigncs or eacn estate to pro

While this cape ia under discusssion in

Mr. potter opened the discussion on

that he desired to prevent the investiga

I compete with any Northern " Jobbing House "
