' WHERE TO 60 FOR THE SUMMER.
yesterday gave us aTgenuine taste of
summer," and those who are in the habit
of spending their summers away from
home were brought face to face with
the Question, whither shall we flee ? ; In
point of fact there is little necessity for
the people of . Charlotte, to go anywhere
during the heated term. Our city is
thoroughly healthy and if the summer
. season cannot be spent herein perfect
comfort, it can at least be spent in en
tire safety. But a great many people
lhink, and with some cause, that they
heed an occasional change of air, and
that ladies and children whd can afford
to do so should seek cooler breezes dur
ing the hot months, is well and proper.
Where what they want can be found is
a question not difficult to answer. They
need not go beyond the mountains, the
watering places or the seashore of our
own State. If they are -in delicate
health, mineral springs abound in pur
own State in almost endless variety ; if
ihev wish to find a more salubrious
climate, and feel themselves indepen
dent of mineral waters, they cannot go
amiss for it in the mountains of North
Carolina r if they want the refreshing
sea-breezes, with the pastimes which a
seaside resort affords, they need not go
further than Beaufort.
We have noted with much satisfuc
tion the tendency on the part of our
people to gather at their own summer
resorts. The "fashion" which has in
the past carried them to the Virginia
springs and to the resorts of the North,
is gradually losing its strength with
them, and they have adopted the sensi
ble idea, while descanting upon the
charms of The Switzerland of Ameri
ca," of enforcing their precept by their
example. For years we have all been
holding out to strangers the delights of
a summer in North Carolina, and it
argues better for our consistency that
we are beginning to illustrate our faith
by our works. A higher degree of State
pride is a thing in which we have long
stood in need and this is a species of
that quality. Last year our mountains
were filled with people from the lower
sections of our own State, and this sea
son promises to increase their populari
ty. This is well. Here health is to be
found and the means of amusement are
after all, in people themselves, wherev
er they are gathered, independent, to a
great extent, of artificial appliances.
Let us continue to patrpnize our own
mountains, and springes and seaside re
sorts, and it will not be many summers
before we will be able to find there all
those facilities for enjoyment which
some claim are found of superior quali
Beer Drinking by States. Beer
is rapidly taking the place of whiskey,
in this country, as a beverage, but thus
far North Carolina ranks low. Some
man greatly given to figures has recent
ly published a table founded on infor
mation obtained in the internal reve
nue bureau, in which it appears that
there are consumed "on an average by
every man, woman and child" in the

glassesaf malt liquors annually : New
York and New Jersey, 248 glasses each ;
California. 165: Pennsylvania, New
Hampshire and Nevada, 99 each ; Mary
land and Massachusetts, 55 each; Mis
souri, 71 ; Michigan and Nebraska, 55;
Iowa and District of Columbia, 50;
Washington Territory and Idaho, 45 ;
Connecticut and Wyoming Territory,

Arizona, 14; Dakota, 7; Texas, 4; Ten

North Carolina, 1 each.
"Great Disappointment." News
paper correspondents writing from
Chapel. Hul represent that there was
. great disappointment in consequence of
the failure of Senator Thurman to keep
his engagement to delivfer the literary
address. This is surprising. Great men
are so much in the habit of playing
these little jokes upon North Carolina
colleges that it would seem that by this
time the people should have gotten ac
customed to it Those who have for the
past month had any idea that Judge
Thurman would fill his engagement at
the University have manifested a sweet
simplicity which it would be base flat
tery to call verdancy. ' .'. .
Corrupt Legislators. Pennsylva
nia was humiliated in finding out that
her Legislature had become very cor-
rapt. She is . again humiliated by the
i" discovery that her Legislature is too
i Vorrugt; to expel a member whose cor-
rnption has been proved.; The suppor-

were too numerous to permit tne ex

had been proved.. ta. have attempted to

98 to 88. If the vote to-day on the case

CALHODS'S DISQUISITION OS GOTEMMEST.
Headers of The Observer have
guessed that the .series of : articles on
political ethics, now . running tnrougn
our columns, were from, the pen of Col.
P. Thomas, superintendent ofthe
Carolina Military Institute, of this city,
who has chosen to thus condense and
simplify Calhoun's Disquisition on Gov
ernment. These articles are, what their
caption indicates: a "manual' of this
celebrated wort; and are prepared ; by
Col. Thomas with the ultimate idea of
their being introduced in colleges and,
academies, in which Calhoun's Disqui
sition on Government has long been re
garded as a standard political text
book. As to the manner and purpose
of the work in kwhich he is engaged.
Col. Thomas writes thus to the editor
of the Charleston News and Courier :
I have analyzed the work of Calhoun,
and made it convenient in form and
much easier ot comprehension than it
appears in the present edition. I have
not adhered closely to the text, but have
embellished and illustrated the severe
argument of Calhoun.
- Sly purpose is to bring forward Cal
houn's Science of Government, which
involves no question of sectionalism,
and which is for all ages and every
country. Nor do I propose to agitate
questions which prudence considers ill
timed and out of place. Iam seeking,
as Mr. Calhoun sought, the truth politi
cal, and this is what the country needs
in matters of otate.
As for mvself, 1 have abandoned my
Confederate dream, and am willing to
work for a grand country made upoi
North. East, South and west jjuc i ao
want this country to De a unu or states
and not a unit of individuals, to the
end that it may endure and show to the
world that, under a proper scheme of
government, it is possible for territorial
grandeur to De iouna not inconsistent
with the preservation of liberty.
The Case of Senator ingalls.
Pomeroy was bad enough but it seems
that the case of Ingalls of Kansas is
even worse. Twenty-seven members
of the Legislature of his State have pre
ferred charges of bribery against him.
Incralls reDlied in the third person. A
rejoinder by Messrs. Stumbaugh & Eg-
- A It T 1 1 A
gers, memDers or tne legislature, nas
been filed and is now before the Senate
oommittee on privileges and elections.
We quote a sentence from their reply.
They say :
In Mr. Incralls' case we state in the
most positive manner the names of the
parties bribed, by whom, and the
amounts received, ano mat n an op
portunity is given we will produce the
proofs of the same.
They show that certain statements
made in Ingalls' reply are not true, and
that a majority of the members of the
committee appointed by the Legisla
ture to investigate Ingalls were Radi
cals of the "most strictest sect." They
The charges that we have presented
are specific, and are either true or un
true. If true, Mr. Ingalls is unworthy
to sit an hour in the Senate chamber;
if untrue, they are susceptible of dis-
Let the investigation proceed.
Mistaken AnorT It. The Albany
(N. Y.) Press says:
The Charlotte (X. C.) Observer
nominates Thomas A. Hendricks for
President, and Sanford E. Church for
vice. A good many people will say this
is "putting the cart before the horse."
Pardon us ; but there is some mis
take about this. The Observer is not
in the nominating business and has not
nominated anybody. It will, however,
support Hendricks and Church, Church
and Hendricks, 'or anybody-to-beat-Grant
or John Sherman just whoever
the Democratic convention next year
says are the men to win.
Senator Hampton is not a brilliant
man, but he is a man of practical ideas
and with plenty of what we are in the
habit of somewhat vulgarly denominat
ing "horse sense." This quality was
very fully illustrated in those parts of
his speech in the Senate . Thursday
which related to the duty of the Demo
cratic party with reference to the ap
propriation bills. The better sense of
the country fully endorses Senator
Hampton's position on this question.
John Sherman says the Ohio Demo
crats have nominated a strong ticket,
the strongest that they could have put
up, Sherman's preference for Ewing is
explained by the fact that they are
brothers-in-law and the closest of

The Bandana Waves to'Some Purpose
The Bayard f Juror Bill Passed
. Short House Session,..d-e,
.-. Washington, June 6. Senate.
Coke asked Bayard, the chairman of
the finance committee, what action had
been taken on tUe Warner silver bill.
He had understood, the committee -had
aerreed to postpone its consideration un
til December. -Bayard did not feel au
thorized to say what had taken place
in committee. He would only say no
member had been instructed to report
on the bill. Coke- then said his sense
of duty led him to off er a resolution to
discharge the committee from the
further consideration of the bill, And
to declare the bill before the Senate for
action. Edmunds, Whyte and others ob
jected, and the resolution went over,
Edmunds resumed his remarks on I
the bill to repeal sections 801, 820 and
821 of the Revised Statutes.
Alluding to Bayard's citation yester
day, of the opinion recently rendered by
Justice Field, in the United States Su
preme Court that "these laws are as in
valid and unconstitutional as would be
a law quartering a Federal : soldier in
every Southern man's house," Edmunds
said this opinion was that of Justice
Field alone and not of the court, and
he did not consider it good law. He
then read a law of Maryland to show
that there was discrimination in that
State against colored men in the forma
tion of juries, but was corrected by
Whyte. He then proceeded to point
out what he thought the absurdity of
introducing politics into the jury sys
tem, and said it would end in recogniz
ing all other mental differences in the
selection of jurors.
Thurman said Edmunds seemed to be
generating another veto message, fur
nishing sophestries for people not sharp
enough to invent them for themselves,
in order that they may come back here
in a sort of shuttiecock and battledoore
from the other end of the avenue.
Laughter. He said Edmunds seemed
afraid to leave the qualifications of
jurors with the States, but section 800
of the Revised Statutes, left them there
and that section was upheld by the Re-
mblicans, at least until 1875, when a
aw was passed prohibiting discrimina
tion on account of race, color. &c. If
that law prevented discrimination un
der the Maryland State law, then it
would prevent it now in spite of this
Whyte then explained the jury law of
Maryland and a colloquy took place be
tween Whyte and .Edmunds as to tne
working of that law,
Blaine having understood Thurman
to say that the President might veto the
present bill asked how he knew it?
Thurman replied he did not know it
but in his opinion the bills had been
vetoed because the Republican mem
bers or Congress had, he would not
say bulldozed, but coerced the executive
into vetoing them.
Edmunds raised the point of order
that Thurman was out of order in
charging Senators with coercion of the
Thurman said he did not mean physi
cal coercion or violence, but that the
President had been induced by the
course of the Republican Congressmen
to veto bills he would not otherwise
In the discussion that followed the
Democratic Senators quoted a case
where Republican members had de
nounced Andrew Johnson as a despot,
&c, and the decision of Blaine
when the latter was Speaker of the
House, holding that a member was
not out of order in using accusatory
words of the President.

purpose of deciding whether the Warner

tion during the present session. The
motion pending at adjournment of last
meeting was one submitted by Voor
hees, that the committee proceed to the
consideration of this measure. Morrill
to-day moved to amend this motion bv
adding "and for the purpose of having
time for the purpose of its full consid
