The reading public cannot haYefor
gotten the case of Kev. Dr. Leftwitch
and; Deacon Block, of Atlanta, Ga.
They are Presbyterians; the one was a
nastor.the other an Office-bearer. Deacon
Block gave a dance at his house and the
circumstance gave rise to much scan
dal and finally to an ecclesiastical court
martial. The result of all this was
that Dr. Leftwitch resigned his pastor
ate, one of the most desirable in the
city, and that the case of the deacon
went by appeal to the "court.of last re
sort" the General : Assembly of the
rhnrh This bodv v acted upon the
case at its recent meeting'in Louisville,
It opened the whole question of danc
ing so far as it relates to members of
the Presbyterian Church, the questions
beinz the following, submitted to the
General Assembly by the Presbytery of
First Are the deliverances of I860,
1869 and 1877, on the subject of worldly
amusement, to be accepted and enforc
ed as law by judicial process?
Second. Are all the offences named in
them to be so dealt with, or are excep
tions to be made V
Third. Are the deliverances of all our
church courts of the same nature and
authority, so far as the bounds of these
respective courts extend ? ,
The committee to whom these were
referred made a report, answering the
first in the negative, on the ground that
the deliverances referred to "do not re
quire judicial prosecution expressly,
and could not require it, without violat
ing the spirit of our law that "none of
these deliverances were made by the
Assembly in a strictly judicial capacity,
but were all deliverances in thesi,
and, therefore, can be considered as
only didactic, advisory arid monitory."
The committee continues at some
length in answer to the first question
which answer, they say, answers the
second also. In answer to the third
q uestion the report says : jj
The nature and authority of all our
church courts are the same, so far as the
bounds of these respective courts ex
tend, subject, of course, to the provi
sions for review and control of the
lower courts by the higher. The power
of the whole is in every part, but the
power of the whole is the power f
The report, which is a Vfrv lengthy
one was adopted, and thusTis set at rest
a vexed question, though the meaning
of the committee is a good deal obscur
red by the language employed, the
amount of it all seems to -be that due
regard must be had for the' rulings and
admonitions of the Church, but the
Church is required to abstain from
harsh and tyrannical action towards
members who may indulge in dancing
and theatre-going, yet without overt
sin. , It should rather resort to the far
mrre efficacious methods of "inspection,
iniuest, remonstrance, rebuke and pri
Newspaper Removal. It Is an
nounced that John I). Cameron. Esq,
will in a very short time move his news
paper, the Hillsboro Recorder, to Dur
ham. The taking of the Reorder from
Hillsboro will seem like a removal of
one of the "landmarks which the fathers
have set," It is the oldest newspaper
in North Carolina, having been pub
lished continuously at Hillsboro since
1820. II illsboro, , however, has fallen be
hind the times; it has been outstripped
by its youthful Sister, Durham, which
doubtless offers the Recorder a better
support than can lie assured it at Hills
boro. Durban) could afford to pay high
for the privilege of having published
there a newspaper such as the Recorder
is. There is no place in the State, to
which it would not be an honor. Of
striking ability, dignity, and most ex
cellent judgment, it has, under Mr.
Cameron's management, been an hon r,
not only to Hillsboro, but North Car
lina and to the profession. We trust
that in its new home its high qualities
may 'meet with a propej: recognition,
and that the best expectations of Us
excellent and accomplished editor may
be fulfilled. -
Mb. Robbins's 20th May Address.
The address of Hon. Wm. M.:Rob-'
bias,' delivered in this city on the 20th
inst, has met a flattering reception on
the part of the press of this and other
States'. The Wilmington Star reviews
it irn editorial article a column in
length, and pronounces it "excellent
whether reviewed as to its style, its
scope and unity, its inspiring senti
ments, or its noble State pride.",, It.de-t
clares the arrangement of the histori
cal facts "judicious, and the discussion
luminous and impressive." It hopes
"t will be printed in pamphlet and
widely distributed,'' , because -if is his
tory .in ajcojnpactand enjoyable form,"
and because . it "discusses the fact of a"
declaration ith ; conclusive force."
All this is very high praise but no one
who heard or has read the address can
"but admit that it is very just praise.

system of ( tacking political legislation
opon appropriation bills jjirice lie has
voted in Congress in favor of this very
thing, and it doesn't stand any Republi
can in hand, Mr. Hayes nor any one else,
to argue that supervision of elections is
necessary to maintain their purity, see
ine that that party has never exercised
this supervision in, the -past except for
the purpose" ot falsifying public senti
ment as expressed at the polls. Upon
this point Mr. Hayes's theory is very
excellent, as a theory, but the people
know to their cost what it means when
put into practical operation.
The veto develops nothing new. It
simply goes over the ground traversed
by the Republican Senators and Repre
sentatives in their discussions of this
bill, and even as a campaign document
it is not likely to prove very effective.
Senator Vance delivered the oration
Wednesday at the tobacco fair at
Lynchburg, Va. Mr. Steele was en

The Hillsboro Recorder and Durham
Tobacco Plant both refute in very warm
terms the libels upon their county and
people, perpetrated by the New; York
Herald and Sun in their reports of the
recent execution of the Chapel Hill bur

libels in the Herald were penned by a
native born Carolinian, who reported
the execution for that paper; if so the
matter is made so much the worse.

VETO NUMBER :THREE
THE PRESIDENT E-3DERS HIS
Summary of Mr. Hayes's Reasons for
Declining to 'Sign the Legislative,
Executive and Judicial Appro- :
Washington. Mav 29.;
dent's veto of the legislatlveTexecritlve
and judicial appropriation bill was sent
in to Congress to-day. The President
in the message accompanying the veto,
after stating the main purpose of the
bill which he returns without his ap
proval, says: "This money is needed to
keep In Operation the essential func
tions of aii the great departments of
the government-the legislativeexecu-
, . 1 1; i Til .1 1:11 .X-: 1
live anu juuiuiai.. xj. uie ulu vuuuuuw.
no other provisions, no objection to its
approval would be made. It embraces,
however, a number of clauses relating
to subjects of great general interest,
which are wholly unconnected with the
appropriation which it - provides for.
The objections to the practice of tack
ing general legislation to appropriation
bills, especially when the object is to de
prive a co-ordinate branch of the gov
ernment of its right to the free exercise
of its own discretion and judgment
touching such general legislation, were
set forth in a special message in rela
tion to the House bill No. 1, which was
returned to the House of Representa
tives on the 29th of last month." He
regrets that the objections which were
then expressed, to this method of legis
lation have not seemed to Congress of
sufficient weight to dissuade it from the.
renewed incorporation of general enact
ments in an appropriation bill, and that
his constitutional duty in respect of
general legislation thus placed before
him cannot be discharged without seem
ing to delay, bowever briefly, the neces
sary appropriations by Congress for the
support of the government.
He then quotes the clauses repealing
the sections of the revised "statutes in
relation to supervisors of elections and
deputy marshals, and states that the bill
if approved would repeal or amend sec
tions of the act approved May 30; 1870,
and amended February 28th, 1871, en
titled "an act to enforce the rights ' of
citizens in the United States to vote in
the several States of this Union and for
other purposes," and says the true mean
ing and effect of the proposed legisla
tion are plain. Supervisors, with au
thority to observe and witness the pro
ceedings at congressional elections, will
be left, but there will be no power to
protect them or to prevent interference
with their duties or to punish any vio
lation of law from which their powers
are derived. If this bill is approved on
ly the shadow of the authority of the
United States at the national elections
will remain ; the substance will be gone ;
supervision of elections will be reduced
to mere inspection without authority
on the part of supervisors to do any act
whatever to make the election a fair
one. All that will be left to the super
visors is permission to have such over
sight of ejections as political parties are
in tne nauit 01 exercising wiuioul any
authority of law, in order to prevent
their opponents from obtaining unfair
advantages. The object of the Dill is to
destroy any control whatever by the
United States over congressional elec
tions. The passage of this bill has been
urged upon the ground that the elec
tion of members of Congress is a mat
ter which concerns the States alone ;
that these elections should be opntrolled
exclusively by the States; tbat there
are and can be no such elections as na
tional elections, and that the existing
Jaw of the United States regulating con
gressional elections is without warrant
in the constitution,
He tlien quotes the constitution to
show that the fr&raers of that docu
ment regarded the election of members
of Congress in every State as justly a
matter of political interest and con
cern to the whole country, and refers to
the law passed in lSQfl, which prescrib
ed full and detailed regulations for the
election of Senators by the legislatures
of the several States, "and says: "This
law has been in force almost thirteen
years. In pursuance of it all the mem
bers of the present Senate of the United
States hold their seats. Its constitution
ality is not called in question. It is confi
dently believed that no sound argu
ment can be made in support of the
constitutionality of national regulation
of senatorial elections which will not
show that the election of members of
t))e Jfpuse of Representatives may also
be ponstjtuttommy regulate by nation
al authority, The bill before ne itself
recognizes the principle that congress
sional elections are not State elections
but national elections. It leaves in
full force the existing statute under
which supervisors are still to be ai
pointed by national authority, to 'ob
serve and witness' congressional elec-

Liuus w iieiievej. uue cippucctiiuii is maue
by citizens who desire said elections to
be 'guarded and scrutinized.' If power
ta supervise in any respect whatever
congressional elections exists under
section 4, article l, of the constitution,
it is a power which like every other
power belonging to the government of
the 'United States, is paramount and
Supreme and includes the right to era-
fiojr the" necessary means to carry it
nto effect. 4f
-4 He concludes : "This bill recognizes
the authority and duty of the United
Statesto appoint supervisors to guard
and scrutinize congressional elections,
but denies to the government '-of the
United States, all povyer to make Jts
supervision effectual. The great body
of the people of all parties want f ree,
fair elections. They do- not think that
free election means freedom : from
wholesome restraints of law, or that
the place of election should be a sanc
tuary for lawlessness and crime. On
the day of election peace and good or
der are more .necessary ; than on any
other day of the year. On that day the
humblest anil fiflebiest piizens,rged
and infirm, should be, shoUW have rear
son to feel that they are, safe in the ex
ercise of their most responsible duty
and their most sacred right as members
of society their duty and their right
to .vote. The constitutional authority
to regulate congressional elections
which belongs ... to the government of
the United States, and which is necesr
sary to secure the right to vote to every
citizens possessing tne requisite qualift-
cations, ought to be enforced by appro
priate .legislation. So far from public
opiniorrin any part of the Icountry fa
voring any relaxation of the authority
of the government in the protection of
elections from violenpe ana corruption,
I believe it demands greater vigor, both

On McDonald's "resolution to refer to
the committee on election frauds a per
tition of citizens of Rhode Islands com
plaining of deprivations of right to vote
by reason of property qualification in
that State, an animated debate on the
relative apportionment in the States
arose, in which Blaine. Hill and Vance
took part Blaine said the small votes
in several districts in Georgia and other
Southern States were undoubtedly
caused by intimidation. This was de
nied by Hill who explained that where
only one candidate was nominated the
people did not turn ou and a small poll
was the natural result He absolutely
denied the insinuations of fraud made
by the Senator from Maine. Vance
spoke to the same effect.
The morning hour expired, the reso
lutions went over, and the senate tooK

and 1 and . and naval forces.

the President laid before the House
and read. It was listened to with close,
and for a time,, almost respectful at
tention. Only an audible Utter went
through the Democratic ranks when
the sentence was read as to the effect of

elections. Again, when the sentence
was read as to what good faith, honest
endeavors and judicial authority can
do for the protection of the elective
franchise, the Democrats laughed out
right and the Republicans, as a coun
terdemonstratian, applauded. Cox
wanted to have the sentence read

At the conclusion of the reading, the
Republicans again applauded. The

A TARIFF RESOLUTION DEFEATED.
At the session of the ways and means
committee to-day, Felton, of Georgia,
offered the following resolution : "That
the committee on ways and means will
report to the House during this session
of Congress a bill repealing the duty on
all the salts of Cinchona or Peruvian
bark, with the recommendation that it
pass." Frye made the point of order
that under the resolution recently
adopted by the committee, "That this
committee will not consider at this ses
sion any bills or joint resolutions affect
ing the revenue, and that all such mea
sures shall be laid over until the regular
session in December," the committee
could not entertain the resolution, The
chairman, Gibson, of Ionisiana, over
ruled the point of order, whereupon
Conger appealed. The decision was not
sustained and Felton's resolution was
The complexion of persons whose digestion is
