To Our Readers. It is The Ob
server's custom, to. honor ! the 20th of
day and by participating ita;
low -citizens in the general festivities of
the occasion. It will observe' this cus
torn to-day and. as a consequence no
paper will be issued from this office to-
THE 20TH OF MV.
We ' witness another recurrence of
the natal day of American liberty.
One hundred and four years ago to-day
the forefathers of our people struck the
first blow in the contest which after-j
wards resulted in securing to us of this
dav the freedom which we ;npw enjoy ;
and it is well that the memories of
those men, and of the event which has
made their names illustrious, are still
kept green by their progeny. It is well,
because it is always to the -credit of a
people that they respect their tradi
tions and their history: ; but these
annual celebrations Dossess even a
deeper significance than this: they
argue well for the perpetuity of repub
lican institutions; for if the patriotism
of men slows afresh on the plains of
Marathon, and .their religious faith
growsstronger in the shadows of the
temples of Ion, it is easy to be seen
how the hearts of a free-born people
must beat faster when they are brought
face to face with the memories of an
event such ks that which we celebrate
to-day That we celebrate it argues
that we reverence it. and that we
reverence it proves that we value and
appreciate the fruits whjch it has
urought us. So may we ever continue
to do, for thus can we best prove our
worthiness to enjoy the liberty which
our ancestors at so much cost worked
out for themselves and for us.
We add to the above that it is a
ful sign that the observance of the-20th"
cf -May has, year by year, for-many
years past, grown ju importance -in th
minds of our -people.' Without a prior
interest in the day and the deejjL, which
it commemorates, we coma never nave
shown up in a : centennial jcelebraticn
equal to that with which we astonished
our neighbors and .our. owSTselvesin
1875. And it is a no less hopeful sign
that our interest in the day, instead of
lagging after that event, seems rather
to have been increased by it, and that
with each recurring year, the minds of
our people revert to the patriots of '5
and fresh honors are done their memo ,
rie3 with the return of each 20th of
May. '1 ;
The Celebration of to-iliiy Swill be of a
m irked and conspicuous character.
Npt that it will equal, in any particu
lar, in pomp or ceremony, the centen
nial celebration of the Mecklenburg '
Declaration, but in that it will be, with
that single exception, the inost largely
attended and in all respecta most nota
ble celebration of that event. Of them
selves the people of Charlotte could hot
have given to the celebration of to-day
such a chRFaeter-ra-it wirrjbear. This
marks the awkenipg of an interest in
the day" throughout $hej entire t State.
. The day has, as it should long ago have
done, lost much of its distinctive local
character, and the whole people of
North Carolina are realizing the fact
that this is Iheir day. Hence, the
yearly increasing disposition, especially
noticeable this year, to make common
, cause in this celebration, and to regard
the Mecklenburg -Declaration of Inde
pendence as au essential part not of
local but of State history. .
It is this growth of public sentiment
with reference $0 the day which has
warranted the extensive preparations
which have been made for this cele
bration. "A - distinguished citizen of
another town hsts been invited to pro
nounce the oration, "with the full on
fidence that hie will not have to cdnlent
: himself with an audience of ChajTotte
iind' Mecklenburg' people. The sequel
w'illi prove that" this conjidence was
wjlr; founded; he will number among
his3uditors representatives of scores of
different jgpunties of our own State, and
notnlyiso but even of other States.
It is on to bid sill of these people a
cordial welcome to Charlotte: first, the
honored chief executive officer of our
Sa6e, whose courage, patriotism and
unswerving integrity hav won him
mapy admirers among the sturdy peo
ple of Mecklenburg; next, the orator
of the day, whose fidelity to his people,
whose high talents and thrilling elo
quence have made his n&me familiar to
feaiy ear; jiexV the other 'distinguished
gentlemen who will-be the city's guests
on this occasion ; and not less cordially
than these our . other, visitors, tfrom

A NEW NATIONAL TICIET.
The reader will be much struck by a
communicated article in to-day's Ob
server recommending as the national
Democratic ticket in 1880, Thomas A.
Hendricks, of Indiana, and Sandford E.
Church, of New York. This paper, as
its readers, know, has committed itself
to no ticket for the next national strug
gle, Inor will it do so at present. A
vear will elapse before the national
Democratic convention makes its nom
ination and many things may occur
between this time apd that to strike
down and raise up tnen. At present,
however, it can be Said that the ticket
suggested by our correspondents, is an
other addition to the list of good and
available men who have been men
tioned in this connection. All that is
said of Mr. Hendricks is true; he can
easily carry Indiana ; all that is said of
Judge Church is likewise true; he can
at any time cany New York, if we
may judge from the past and from
what may be learned of him through
j the medium of popular communication.
, There is no great i'aClcTot 'men dlH

school literature spoken of by Blaine is
non-existent. During the war a few
such works were circulated but since
then no Southern child had ever seen"
one.;, No measure advocated by South
ern men, said, Mr -Vance, has a fair
hearing in this body. The fact . that it
is upheld by them is the, signal for rer
viving old issues not pertinent to the
question. He thought it essential to a
proper consideration of this bill that it
oediscussed on its merits, but the argu
ments of its opponents were mere party
denunciation. If this were an action
at law and such answers to the com
plaint were filed they would be rejected
as frivolous. ,-Mr. Vance made a very
earnest demand that proper respect be
given to Southern representatives and
commented upon the Republican
logic concerning the elections which
was that "elections shall be free if we
have to surround the polls with 'bayo
nets ; they shall be according to State
laws if w-e have to overawe the civil
authorities by force to have our way ;
they shall be pure if it-takes John
Davenport and every criminal in our
cities to manage and give them purity;
they shall be conducted without the
appearance of violence if the artillery
has to be trained on every ballot box,
and they shall be fair if we have to
arrest every man offering to vote the
democratic ticket Unless we can use
the army at the polls to count in

that, as a medicine adapted to sudden and unex
