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 mond State: 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 tively. t 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 subsided. "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, beginning: 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 vigilance. , 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 done. 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 myself. "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 weapons.
