EXACTLY A HUlIOilB BOTE-
There is not the slightest doubt that
there is a political movement on foot to
wrest North Carolina from the Demo
cratic party, but it will not be exactly a
Mahone movement ; that is, the Repub
licans do not propose fur the aid they
can get from the Independents to sur
render to the Independents. Whatever
surrendering is to be done must be done
by the new recruits, who will be taken
in out of the wet and probably receive,
or at least be promised, an equivalent
for any service they may render their
Republican allies. Just how many or
what the class of these recruits will fall
into line remains to be seen, but thus
far the engineers of the movement
have not given us any figures nor any
names of note. They have won none
whose following would make bartering
much of an object. The fact is that
while there is a disposition to parley
with Democrats who may be approach
able, the leaders of the Republican par
ty claim to have confidence in their
ability to carry the State without much
outside leadership, fancying they see
elements of weakness in the ranks of
the Democracy which will give them
the vantage ground in the next cam
paign. , While we are far from conceding that
they have as easy a thing as they claim,
it must be confessed that circumstances
are more favorable to them now than
they have been for some years, and
that it will require both hard work and
good management on the part of our
party managers to hold the State. There
is lack of unity in the Democratic
party, but there is also lack of unity
amongst the leaders of the opposition,
the difference being, however, that as
much as they may wrangle before the
election they generally manage to pull
together when the solid work of the
contest is to be put in. They have or
ganization which we lack, and implicit
ly obey orders when the orders are
given. The solid colored vote to start
with, and the army of Federal office
holders to do the work required, and
pay assessments needed, gives them a
very decided advantage to begin with,
for they can count on a reliable number
of votes to begin with, so that their
work need be devoted to gathering in
enough straggles to make up the margin
between the number assured and the
They have figured on this and count
ing on a certain amount of indifference
or defection ,in the Democratic ranks
they think they can control enough of
stragglers to overcome the Democratic
majority, and hence are not disposed to
play second fiddle to the Independents,
whose services they do not consider a
necessity. They will, however, welcome
all who come and greet them into the
republican wigwam, when they can
talk backwards and come in perhaps
for some of the pickings in a small
Louisville Courier-Journal : "Up to
the utmost limits of national authori
ty "says the Philadelphia American,
"we must protect the black man against
all invasions of his rights." While the
black man's alleged grievances are
thus receiving the attention of the Re
publican party on paper, there are 40,
000 white men in Rhode Island who are
deprived of the right of suffrage and
are clamoring every day for their
rights, but they get no hearing.
The Atlanta Constitution estimates
the attendance at the exposition at
250,000Jpeople. The cost was $260,000,
$150,000 of which was' put into build
ings and emprovements,and the balance
on printihg, running expenses, etc. The
receipts were from $220,000 to $250,000,
of which $115,000 came from stock,$15,
000 from entry-fees, $90,000 from gate
receipts, and $5,000 from dther sources.
Railroads prosper in spite of poor
crops and bad weather. The Financial
Chronicle shows that the earnings of
thirty-four railway companies during
the first two weeks in December were
$253pefkmile, against $235 for the same
period last year.
The official reports of theGuiteau
trial, up to Wednesday's proceedings,
make 1,775 printed pages, and, with the
arguments, the full report of the trial
will make a' volume of above 2,000

this item alone will be about $5,000.

There are 800 tons of silver dollars itT
the New York Sub-Treasury. They are
there because they won't circulate.
How much longer is the farce to be
continued of making dollars with only
85 cents worth of silver in them?
And they won't circulate simply be
cause people who have been combining
to have silver demonetized have done
everything in theft pbwertS prevent
them from circulating.; After the pas
sage of the act re-monetizing silver the
opponents of that measure set them
selves deliberately to work " to throw
every impediment in the way of the
circulation of the silver dollar. Instead
of being paid out as they might have
been, they were hoarded up in the trea
sury under the pretense that they were
not wanted in circulation, while many
o! the banks refused to take them. If
it were not for the conspiracy against
silver there would be but little of those
800 tons lying idle in the vaults at New
York or anywhere else.

lie explained that purpose of the act
of 1858 ; was to ascertain the time the
northern Texas Dounaary, mat is to say
what is the main Red River line, as laid
down on the Mellish map of January l,
1818, by which the boundary was fixed
between the United States and Mexico
under the treaty of 1828. ,
The work of the commissson showed
nothing definite on that point. Texas
claimed the north bank and the interior
department of the south.f ork of Red riv
er to be the true Red River, according
to the Mellish map. The resolution
By Jones of Florida: Calling on the
secretary of the Interior for informa
tion relating to the sections of swamp
lands in Florida, in violation of the
law, whether or not any investigation
of the subject has been had under his
authority, whether any of the State
officers are involved , and have been no
tified of the fact and also whether upon
the facts the whole matter ought not to
be investigated by Congress.
Jones said he had seen it stated in
the public press and in one paper as if
coming irom iub twicuur wj in
terior, that the State officers of Florida
had been connected with a riDg, which
was engaged in making selections of
land in the State unlawfully.
He knew nothing of the facts but
from his knowledge of the persons re
fered to he believed there was no foun
dation for the statement. In justice to
them he would favor an investigation of
the matter. The resolution was a dopt
ed. Sherman moved to take up his three
per cent, bond bill.
McPherson objected and gave notice
of an amendment making bonds re
deemable after January 1st, 1891, in
stead of payable after January 1st, 1887,
and extend the time of payment to
thirty years from date of issue.
Plumb gave notice of an amendment
directing the use of all funds now held
in the treasury for the redemption of
United States notes in excess of $100,
000,000 for redemption of theSper
Hoar obtaining leave to make a state
ment, reading a newspaper cutting
which he had received in a letter of a
correspondent. It asserted that as chair
man of the Senate committee on claims.
Senator Hoar was sending out letters
to representatives- of Southern claims
which bad been presented to Congress,
stating that the Republicans in Con
gress are not opposed to the payment of
Southern claims, but on the contrary
favor the payment where claims are
just; that he invited the sending on of
proofs, and that his course was an un
usual one for even a conservative Re
publican. He said he had not thus far
in his political life felt compelled to
contradictor explain any ridiculous
statement in regard to himself, but he
had received so many letters from In
terested parties concerning these claims
he would now say he was not chairman
of the committee on claims, that he had
written no letter to warrant such state
ment, and so far as he knew had writ
ten none on the subject. It was possi
ble that in reply to a correspondent he
had stated that claims from any quar
ter would receive due consideration by
the proper committee, and that as com
mittees were in the habit of acting on
such things judicially, claimants nad
better send their proofs, but he had
written nothing of the kind described
in the article.
The calendar was then taken, np and
occupied the day, the morning, .hour
being extended for. its consideration.
Several resolutions, including one for
the Woman Suffrage, Committee, were
passed over because, of the absence of
senators interested in them.
Resolution of December 13th, offered
by Davis of West Virginia, relating to
pension frauds, calling for statements
of their nature and character, what
amount of arrears has been paid, the
number of cases added to the pension
roll under the "Arrears Act," &c, &c,
next came up.
Some discussion ensued upon an
amendment by Edmunds, striking out
the direction to the Secretary of the In
terior to report his opinion upon such
legislation as he thought advisable.
Finally the resolution as modified by
Edmunds's amendment was adopted.

Washington, Jan. 4. Congress as
sembles to-morrow and the third house
is already on hand. Among the mem
bers just now oi tnis latter aitacnment,
which is not mentioned in the constitu
tion, by the way, but which possesses
much more influence sometimes than
those that are, are some citizens of
North Carolina. The peaceful disposi
tion of the average Tar Heeler is weli
known. So when he wanders so far
from his native heath, you may depend
uDon it that business is impending, so
f arMr. Jos. P. Hester, of Oxford, an
A. J. Kuffin, of Hillsboro, constitute th
advance guard or tne uxorta uarouna
brigade. The rest are coming, and it is
understood that as lively a light over
who shall be the power in the old North
State, as was ever waged in or out of its
barders, will be fought here this win
ter. What faction will come on top is
not known, nor what leader will be se
lected to dispense the patronage but
certain it will be a stalwart. If gossip
is to be believed a number or oaanges
are already decided upon.' The" Char
lotte mint which has for fifteen years
been under the present superintendent
Calvin J. Cowles, with a salary of $2r
500 per annum, attached, has at last
aroused the cupidity of Mr. R. M. Nor
meht, at least the salary has and it is
understood that he is a strong candi
date for the place. . His papers-which
are in this city have the signatures of a
many good people r upon them..; His
friends say that Mr. Cowles is an old
fogy, and that the mint would h&rede-'
veloped long ago had it had some man
at its head, who had thetmsb and 4rim
that the place required. If these same
people are to be Believed Mr Norment
possesses in a high degree the qualities
that Mr. Cowles is alleged to lack. But
while Mr. Notmentls pushing ins fight
quietly, weli informed Republicans here
say that Mr. Cowles is not the kind of
a man to allow grass to grow under his
feet, when the retention of his office is
the price of vigilance. In the fifth district
there is also brewing a fight which is
likelv to last all winter. Geo. B. Ever-
ittis at present collector land unfortu
nately for him there are several other
men in the same district who desire his
shoes. At the time Everitt was ap
pointed ii was generally understood
that it was at Snerman's instigation,
who said when he called on Hayes,
that - there was only one matter outside
of Ohio in which be took a personal in
terest, and that was that Everitt be
gives the posiiien of collector in place
oi a mail wuum ouciiunu vuum uvu
manage in his fight for the Republican
nomination. So Everitt' was appoint-,
ed, and Reuben F.Trogden of Rocking
ham county, Joseph. Jr. Causey, county,
treasurer of &allf ord county, and others
went on his bond. . These two latter
gentlemen are now understood to have
withdrawn from his bond and J. R.
Ireland and J. E. McCauley and Mr.
Trogden are both understood to be
candidates for Mr. Everitt's position,
and as he basso identified himself with
Sherman, in these days of stalwartism,
it is not improbable that he may be re
lieved. The distillers,too,who are repre
sented as being dissatisfied with' his
business qualifications or lack of them,
are moving against him. To men up a
tree it promises to be a most interesting
fight, and we can say in the language of
Shakespeare or Bob Iogersol, "the devil
take the hindmost"
The number of bills introduced in
the House has been so great that not
until to-day were they all printed.
Among the bills introduced by mem
bers from North Carolina was one by
Mr. Dowd in reference to building a
court house at Charlotte which reads as

commends the adoption without unne

shall provide for the discharge of the
public obligations upon the oasis Bet
forth in the act passed by the last Gen
eral Assembly, and kno wn as the "Rid
dlebergor Bilf Great misapprehen
sion exists, he says, as to the purpose of
the people of Virginia in; regard to the
final settlement of . all controversy con
cerning the State debt. As ne under
stands the views and will of the people
they do not intend to repudiate any
just obligation, but to assume and pay
that portion of the principal which is
properly chargeable to the present Btate
of Virginia and to restore all classes of
creditors to ft plane of equality. The
true indebtedness of the State, be says,
should be determined by computing the
full interest to the date of aettiement
from the period when Virginia lost con
trol of and ceased to draw revenue
from the territory embraced in West
Virginia. Second, by crediting against
the sum total of principal and Interest
so obtained acknowledged payments on
both accounts made by Virginia since
losing a portion of her territory. If
this shall be done and provision made
for the liquidation of the amount so
found to be due no charge of repudia
tion can be laid at the door of the peo
ple of this Commonwealth. As to the
rate of interest which can and should
be paid on the principal so ascertained
and assumed, the Governor says all
parties in the State are agreed that the
present rate of taxation cannot be in
creased, and that careful estimates es
tablish the proposition that 3 per cent,
is the largest rate of interest that can
be provided for with certainty. The
Governor concludes : "We are support
ed fn this conclusion not only by finan
cial experience of many years, but also
by the fact JLhat the proposed interest
is as great as the average Tate paid by
the debtor class ot the world on public
securities at the present day."

A Railroad KeirpecU
The Railroad Journal ended the year
1881 with an abstract from an article in
its issue of fifty years before, describ
ing the condition and extent of railroad
building at that time. On January 1,
1832, but 60 of the proposed miles of the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad were
completed and in operation, whereas
now it has extenued its length to 1,
6543& miles. Tha Albany and Schenec
tady had but 12 miles in operation in
1832. Tbe Charleston and Hamburg,
in South Carolina, next in importance
after Baltimore and Ohio at that time,
had 20 miies of its proposed 135 in oper
ation, and had acquired the distinction
of being the first railroad in this coun
try to have ajcontract with the govern
mentfor carrying the United States
mail. The Quincey, a stone-quarry
road near Boston, oncan claimed as the
first railroad in the country; had nine
miles in use, and the Mauch Cuhk, also
had nine miles of road in use. The
Ithaca and Oswego, the Lexington
and Ohio, the Camden and Amboy and
the JUackawaxen had been begun. The
Boston and Albany, Boston and Provi
dence and the Philadelphia and Norris
town were projected. Notice had been
given in the New York Legislature of
charters to be applied for for twenty
five railroads in that State, with an ag
gregate capital of $42,000,000, among
them the Erie. There was considerable
opposition to railroads in New Yore,
and: especially to the Erie, on the
ground that it would destroy the canaL
The Journal may claim to have been
possessed of a prophetic spirit when it
defended the embryo road with argu
ments like .these: -
"With such a railroad, intersected at
convenient' distance by other roads,
running from the Erie canal, and one
from Ogdenburg to Syracuse or -Utica,
almost every county in the State
would be brought' Within twenty-four
hours' ride ot New York. It would
prevent a recttrrency of the state , of
things Which now exists 1n this .city.
There, would not then be, as there now
are. thousands of barrels or nour : and
other kinds of produce
It would not be now
frozen up in canal t
on the Hudson : salt
selling in Albany for 92 50 per bushel,
and pork at $2 per hundred for want of
salt to save it. whilst it is worth from
85 tp $7 in this city. Coal would not
then sell here for 815 to 816 per ton;
nor oak wood at 89 and hickory at $13
per cord, as has been the case for two
or three weeks past, if railroads were
in general use ; but all kinds of business
would move on Tegularly and be more
equally divided throughout the year,
produce could ceme to market as well
in January as in July; and the farmer
would not be obliged, in order to get
his erop to market in the fall, to neglect
preparing for the next." : ,
Unlike most prophets, the Journal
has lived to be surprised at the truth of
of its prediction. It is-due to the rail
roads that prices to-day in all parts of
the i United States are pretty nearly; the
same. Steam has gone far to annihil
ate distance as an elementr of cost. A
clance at the market quotations for ar
ticles of necessary use1 in different
quarters of the country fifty years ago
will convince the intensest railooad
hater that something has been done for
the enhancement1 of personal comfort,
for commerce and Tor material develop
