fOL. STEELE'S SPEECH.
. v, . ., ' : ) .
'ilitf Congressional ' Retard, which
usually as regular as any newspaper,
that comes to The Observer, Tiiui not
reached us for three days; hence, we
have not vet seen the text ot Hon.
Walter L. Steele's speech in the l House
Jast Saturday. The Washington cor
respondents, however, continue to tele
graph and write their papers about it,
and the newspapers continue to teem
with comments upon the telegraphic
reports which they have received of it.
Rome of the brief reports which have
been made of the speech by the; corres
pondents are worthy o( reproduction.
We take especial pleasure, injcopying
what is said of it by "Bill Dad " the
Washington correspondent of the Rich
Well, when this entertaining old gen
tleman Rice, of Iowa, got through,
another amusing but much more sensi
ble man, Steele, of North Carolina, had
an hour. He commenced by -saying,
throuarh his nose, in true KewCEnjnand
style, that he would not begin his speech
with the hymn
"From many an ancient river, ' "'
Krom many a sunny plain.
They are marching to dlaklver .'
The links In error's chain." i
He then proceeded (with the nasal
twang) to reply to charges of outrage
and lawlessness in North Carolina,
made last week by a new fledged states
man from Iowa. He reviewed the his
tory ot reconstruction days in his State,
and showed up in true light the long
suffering and forbearance of his people
under the misrule of ignorantpartisans.
It would be a good thing for North,
Carolina,: and,; indeed, for ; the whole
South if every Northern man . could
read that speech. v
It was noticeable that Gen. Ha'wley
and other Republicans who are dis
posed to inform themselves and judge
fairly of our people, listened atten
Steele is brimful of fun, cool as a cu
cumber, and has a devil-may-care air
about him, and his speech partook of
those characteristics in matter and de
livery. I have to mention an incident.
Frye interrupted him to say that he had
recently looked into the history Of North
Carolina, and would some time prove
that for murders, outrages, moonshiners
and the like disorders, that State was
no better- than other Southern, States.
Steele quietly waited until. Frye stop
ped, and then raising his hands said as
if in fearful dread of -aueh an exposure,
"Angela and ministers of grace defend
" us," then went on with his sieech, as
soon as the laughter and applause had
"W. H. M" the Washington corres
pondent of the Raleigh Obser ver, is even
more complimentary. He . writes at
much length in reference to the speech,
lint the greatest sensation of the day
was the splendid speech of Walter L.
Steele, of North Carolina. CoL Steele
"went up head to-day in the best speech
' of the session. He took a new line of
argument, "carrying the war into Af
rica," by arraigning the Republican
party for its glaring deeds of misrule
and plunder under the infamons carpet-bag
governments ot the South.
The correspondent presents an out
line of the argument, and adds:
Col. Steele was several times intei
rupted by questions from the other
side, but he quickly turned all their
efforts into ridicule, and then proceeded
with his speech, which was replete with
argument, ana ciotnea in tne most apt
and appropriate language. At the con
clusion of the speech Col. Steele was
warmly applauded, and the congratula
tions continued for some time after ad
journment. So the "Old North State,"
as in the days of the past, is now,
through her noble delegation in Con
gress, at the front Her people need no
sentinels of greater watchfulness and
It is quite evident that our represen
tative has made a very decided hit
Reflection on the subject Is beginning
to show where laws against : the carry
ing of concealed dcadlv weapnsvwill
lead to, and gradually press and people
are beginning to speak out on the sub
ject of this foolish legislation. To say
that a peaceable and well-disposed man
in this fountry never needs to carry a
weapon is, to say that this is L topia ;
and to say that aliTiAnlftMlpistO
wille regarded in the slightest by the
Vicious, is to betray a sweet simplicity
which could be extravagantly admired
if it did not place the good at the mer
cy of the bad. On this subject the Wil
ming Star has a highly sensible edito
rial, from which we extract as follows:
As to carrying concealed, weapons,
we have this to say: it would be ex
tremely fortunate if there were no
weapons in the world and all men were
good and pure and just But there are
thousands of bad, cruel, devilish men
in the. world, and weapons of defence,
are absolutely necessary. The law tq
niinish f or earrrvinz concealed rvreap-
ons will probable prove a dead letter
to a very great extent The law-abiding
will obey whilst tens of thousands will
still have their pistols concealed about
their persons. The result will be the
good and law-abiding will be at the
mercv of the vicious and vindictive.
Southern society since the war is pecu
liar, and it is not always safe to walk
about our towns and villiages unarm
ed. Within a few weeks two persons
at Charlotte were assaulted by negroes
on their way home at night. We do not
believe that any law against carrying
concealed weapons can be generally
enforced in the South. We admit that
it is verv desirable that such a law
should be pii forced, but it will not be
This is precisely our position on the
subject. Gen. Robt. Toombs of Geor-
gia, goes a little further, as witness the
following from the Atlanta Constitu
tion, of Tuesday :
We met Gen. Toombs at the Kimball
House last night, and he tackled $ on
tne question of carrvi rig concealed weap
ons: . 1
"What in the h 1 are you all making
such a fuss about carrying concealed
weapons for?" says the general.
"Well general, it is to keep people
from killing one another," we replied. .
"Yes." savs he, "it will have just the
opposite effect. Everybody is expected
to lay aside his pistol, and the first
thine vou know some d n coward
who regards neither law nor honor
will shoot you in the back. It is al
wrong, sir! A man ought to carry
arms when be thinks his life is in
riancrer. It is not wrone for him to do
so, and so far as I am concerned, I will
do it whenever 1 want to defend
"My life is worth more than all the
sentiment you can put into such a
question as that. I consider the right
of self-defense irrevocable, and when I
have the right of self-defense, I can use
anything I can get or find that will be
available. I hear some fools talking
about abolishing pistols, putting them
under restriction like you do pisons.
I hold that a man has the right to use
poison to defend himself. (Suppose a
man had a vial of vitriol in his hand,
and was attacked by some one in such
a manner as to excite the fears of a
reasonable man that he would kill him,
don't you think he would be justified in
using his vitriol by throwing it into his
assailant's eyes? The truth is, the way
to protect human life is to let every
man who is the aggressor know that
the man he attacks is able to defend
himself, and it will prevent difficulties.
They say nobody but a coward will
carry weapons. That's a lie. I know
plenty of men who carry them, ana
know they are not cowards, it is
generally the cowards who want you
to lay them aside, so as to give them an
advantage over you."
We copy and say all this, not for the
purpose of inducing people to -violate
the law, for all should respect it, but
because it makes good reading and just
for the purpose of showing how falla-
cwus is tne argument m ravor or a
prohibitory law in the case of deadly
