JUAJ. BOBBINS' ADDRESS. - U ;
sujppose that all o the readers of
" ;The Observer .Have i;ead the address
wof HorktWml- M. Bobbins, delivered in
. this city on the 20th. Those jwho have
not must not fail to do so. If their
daily of yesterday has ieen misplaced
they can be furnished -with the address
as it appears in The Weekly Obsebv-
er Of to-day. It was an oration such
as it is rarely ever giveri to North Caro
' linians to listen to, or, for the matter of
that, to read. It was. scholarly; it in
dicated depth of research ; it was polish
ed and eloquent It improves upon
acquaintance; those who heard it de
livered are those who will most enjoy
the reading ;of it; those who read it a
second time will be more struck with
it than when tfiey read U first.
The oration was entirely appropriate
to the occasion, and yet "Fourth-of-
July" oratory is conspicuous in it only
by its absence. Maj. Kobbms ciemon
strated that a speech may be made on
an occasion of this kindi and yet not ne
cessarily be given entirely over to plati
tudes. It was patriotic' to the last de
gree; it breathed a pure North Caro
lina spirit; it brings the listener or the
reader face to face with the men and
the deeds of 1775, and the best tribute
that Can be paid to it is to say that in
" the vividness "of its so doing it proves
its author's own declaration that "hero
ism is contagious."
In its historical value, in the deduc
tions which it draws from the facts re
cited, in the manner of the statement of
those facts, and in the cqmmon voice of
thosewho heard and have read it is
proved that the committee of gentle
men who had in charge; the selection of
the orator for the one hundred and
fourth anniversary of! our great day,
buikled wiser than they knew.
This notice of this oration is a day
late. Yesterday our .columns were
much crowded. We could not at that
time say so much as this and it would
. have been injustice to the distinguish
ed speaker to have said less. But after
all the best and most forcible comment
upon the oration is the oration itself,
and the perusal of its full text we again
commend to th'e reader.
A Mulatto not a Negko. A case
in which the question of inter-marriage
between the races had been raised, came
up last week in one of the courts of St.
Louis, and the presiding judge . held
t that, the plaintiff being a mulatto, the
legal prohibition did not apply. The
judge thinks, that a person whose blood
is one-fourth of the negro and three-
fourths of the Caucasian race cannot
be classed as a negro, and he quotes in
support of his views a statute in force
before the abolition of slavery making
a distinction between negroes and mu
lattbes,and defining a mulatto to be any
person other than a negro, any one
or whose grandfathers was a negro,
and every person of one-fourth or more

thought this sum too large but would
yield something to the opinion of oth

length, then pointed out what he con
sidered faults in the bill. Among the
objections to it were, he said, first, that
it makes offenses against State laws
punishable in Federal courts; second,
that such offenses are left so in the
jurisdiction of the courts that a man
may be twice punished for the same of
fense ; third, that the fine imposed falls
not upon the real offender but upon the
innocent owner of the vessel. He said
he should not vote for the bill because
he believed the subject did not belong
to national but to local; legislation.
;Mr. Harris replied that experience
had proved local legislation to be in
sufficient. After further remarks by Mr. Conk

The House then, at 12.30. resumed as
the business of the morning hour, the
bill to repeal and amend the laws rela

to Federal courts.
The Republicans refused to vote on
the demand for the previous question,
thereby blocking business. Various
propositions were thereupon suggested
on both sides of the House but were
not acceded to. Finally, as all efforts
at a compromise failed, and as the Re
publicans declined to vote, the call
of the House was proceeded with,
After the expiration of the morning
hour the silver bill came up. The House
agreed to the committee amendment to
the eighth section which provides that
certificates of deposit shall be in -denominations
of not less than $15, instead
of $10, as originally provided. The next
committee amendment provided that
the certificates of deiosit may be compu
ted as part of the lawful money reserve

It was then agreed to allow debate on

as the "gold cases" were taken up to

before J ndge. R. .W. Hughes. These ca
ses embrace about a dozen suits on the
part of .the United States government
against exrState olficials who were in
authority at the time of the evacuation
of Richmond, for amounts ranging
from $1,000 to $5,000, and aggregating
about $20,000. It is claimed that the
insurgent government of Virginia had
