Governor;:pjJi jCarplina for fifteen
........ years past has served' out a full term.
G6. Vance lithe last 'orte1 who did so
He7w aajelected (Joverndfc ml 1862, and
filled out his term, ending iri-1864. He
Ofras then re-elected, buLithe end of the
war came before them wo vears for
which he was elected expired. The first
Governor elected by the people after
the war was Jonathan Worth. He was
hustled, under protest, out of the 'execu
tive office, to make place for W. TV. Hol-
den. Holden was elected, after the "recon
struction" of the State had been effected,
but was impeached and deposed, being
suQceeded by Lieutenant Governor Cald
welL Mr. Caldwell was then, in 1872,
elected by the people,' He died in the
midst of .a four-year term, and was sue-
den. The next man elected Governor
by the people was Z. R Vance, who has
just resignea alter .two years service,
and whose camo is to be put again on
the list of those who began a work and
did not finish it
This is a very singular record. We
doubt if there is another State in the
Union which can present a parallel,
ine ract nas oeen several times com
mented 'upon, that' every Lieutenant
Governor elected by thef' people of
North Carolina has succeeded to the
executive chair, but this is not near so
singular as the fact that no Governor
of North Carolina has since 1864, serv
ed out tire entire term for which he was
elected. Three have been deposed, one
has died, and one resigned to accept a
more elevated station.
THE NEXT jSPEAKER.
The Washington correspondent of
the New York World says that the De
mocrats are convinced that the Speaker
of the next' House should be taken from
a distinctly and unquestionably Demo
cratic State and not from a State in con
test between the two parties, and' that
he should be takenrfram a 'region' cen
tral enough and conservative enough to
be Independent of overweening influ
ences from any particular section,
either of the party or of the country.
This will rule out Mr. Randall, and Mr.
Blackburn, of Kentucky, is regarded as
the coming man. The idea is that Mr.
Randall, coming trom a divided State
with a divided party in that State, "can
"not be expected to merge his individual
"hopes and plans in a calm considera
tion of the general interest of the par
ty.w The most We know of .Mr. Ran
dall, except in a purely general way, is
that he is opposed to alt subsidies (the
same being steals,) of every sort what
ever; but this is quite enough to gain
for him our most favorable considera
tion, with hopes for his re-election. On
the subsidy question, we are not so
rigidly economical as some people in
our notions concerning the expendi
tures of public monies, but we do in
deed dislike to see it stolen by the mil
lions, and this is what, in this genera
tion, is meant by subsidy.
... Give Everybody a Chance. The
Alamance Gleaner, a careful and able
paper, and one with which it always af
fords us pleasure to be in accord, sums
up the whole , case, as relates to the
question of railroad tmilding, in the
following brief sentences:
We are in-favor of giving any and
everybody the right to build a railroad,
whoshows" inclination and ability to
build it Competitions among the rail

are in that section oraur .country.; Me
says that as a rule and the exceptions
are exceedingly and ; inconspicuously
rare the government of the several
States is just as good and orderly and
legal as it is in New England ; that the
elective franchise is just as free, open
and as scrupulously protected as in Bos
ton; that the story of intimidation is a
mere whoop and howl of a few politi
cal bummers and beggars ; that the re
lationship between whites and blacks is
harmonious, and their interests mutu
al and that there is a measureable de
gree of content and satisfaction among
all parties, classes and persons. Let it
further be borne in mind that Dr. Bow
ditch is a radical Republican; that he is
as likely to have as many and as strong
prejudices as any of his party; and that
if the evils, the outlawry, the. outrages,
the intimidations, the persecutions and
cruelties of which so much is heard at
the North, had a real existence he
would certainly have related them, and
in the most cruel and effective terms.
His picture and story are precisely and
wholly opposite. In fact, he returns
from the South its ardent friend and
earnest advocate. At least he is will
ing, and hastens to speak the truth as it is
of the South. That is all the South de
sires, and it. is little enough to award.
Not its bitterest enemy, if honorable,
could do less ; not its warmest friend,
if just, could do more. It is gratifying
beyond what can be easily expressed to
hear such testimony from such a wit
ness to the condition of the South, its
people, its government and Jts institu
tions. Dr. Bowditch's is but the universal
testimony of honest men, of whatever
party, who visit the South from any
section, and the newspaper which we
quote above puts the case strongly and
well. In the light of the frequent pub
lications in Northern journals of such
articles as the above, and remembering
the intelligence of the Northern mind
and its facilities for learning the truth,
we often doubt if any one really be
lieves the stories of those who, for po
litical purposes, find it to their advan
tage to malign the South. We hardly
think that there are many intelligent
people' who are as ignorant as some of
them profess to be of the existence of a
law-abiding majority and a well-ordered
state of society in this section of the
Union. There are none so blind, how
ever, as those who will riot see, and af
ter all that has been established before
the world, if it will not believe that the
South is at peace with itself, the ne
groes and the North, it is to be doubted
if it would be convinced of this fact
even though one rose from the dead.
MILLS DO KOT
fOME TO THE
Mr. Edward King, in a letter to the
Boston Journal, gives some of the rea
sons why orthem capitalists do not
start manufactures in the South. Thev
have read the wild stories of the
correspondents of such newspapers as
the New York Times and Tribune, un
til they believe that there is "no settled
government" in the South. Besides this.
they fear that the public debt will be
repudiated, and that their property will
not be "worth anything for any length
There is not much difficulty in meet-
mg the first objection. The South will
live it down. It i the repudiation talk
that does the real harm.. There is no
Southern State that could not have
compromised its debts five years ago
upon better terms than it can now, and
none which cannot comnromis now
upon better terms than it will bo able
to do five years hence. Meantime the
interest continues to accumulate and
the weight grows heavier year by year.
The man who has money to lend shuns
theSouth, and a wreck of public and
private credit is threatened. The Char
leston Neics and Courier, speaking of
the same matter, pointedly says that
"purely as a matter pf business it is
wiser to pay than to fight."
