OUR WASHINGTON! LETTER.

TUESDAY, JAN. 10, 1882.
AN EXTRA SESSION.
It Is very probable that an extra ses
sion of the Legislature -will be called by
Gov. Jarvis, to consider the sale of the
Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley railroad,
propositions for which were made some
time ago by a New York company and
accepted by the commissioners appoint
ed ,by the Legialature. As it is desire
able to settle the question of the sale so
that work may begin .without unnec
essary delay. Should it be confirmed, we
take it that the Legislature will be con
vened within the next two months.
The sale of the Cape Fear & Yadkin
Valley road is not the only thing which
will be submitted for consideration, but
there will be others, and some of vital
importance to. the State. Prominent
among these will be the question of the
election of magistrates by the people,
and the repeal of the present system of
county government Both of these mat
ters have been much discussed, especi
ally within the past year, and the Re
publican managers hare turned them
to much account by misrepresenting
the attitude of the Democratic party in
relation to them. On the stump and
through the press they have represent
ed that in changing the mode of organ
izing the county courts and of electing
the magistrates it was the purpose of
the legislature to depriye the people, to
this extent, of the right of suffrage, for
the benefit of the few, as against the
many. Of course they represent but
one side, and are far less interested in
making a truthful statement of the case
than in making party capital by dema
gogical misrepresentation. They con
ceal the fact that in the change that was
made the Legislature was actuated by
a' desire to protect the people in the east
ern portion of the Slate, especially,
where the grossest mismanagement and
corruption had previously prevailed,
where unprincipled men backed by an
ignorant and irresponsible following
controlled the counties and indulged in
all manner of lavishness. The people of
the centre and the western portion of
the State appreciating the motive ac
cepted the condition of affairs, and free
ly surrendered their right of suffrage to
this extent for the benefit of their east
But since then so persistent has bten
the attack, and so unstinted the mis
representation thereto, there has been
much dissatisfaction engendered, and a
disposition manifested to demand the
return to them of the right to elect thtir
magistrates and organize their county
governments as they did previous to
the change by the legislature. So gen
eral is this feeling represented to be in
the centre and west that some action
by the legislature is regarded as abso
lutely necessary. While we would de
plore any action that would place the
eastern counties at the mercy of the
same class of men who ran riot over
them in the dark days of Had ical su
premacy, we recognize the necessity of
viewing the situation as it presents it
self, and adopting such measures as
will foil the Radical leaders in their ef"
forts to capture the State, and thus
place themselves in a position not only
to repeal the acts alluded to, but to ac
complish any other partisan legislation
they may have in view. It is the opin
ion of many thinking and intelligent
Democrats that, in the light of the
developments of the past six months,
we cannot afford to enter upon the
next campaign with this as a distract
ing issue; that we must relieve our
selves from this burden or run the risk
of losing heavily in the west, on the vote
of which we rely to hold the State.
The programme of the Radical lead
ers is, as far as the indications go, to
form such alliances as they may be.able
in certain counties to carry a majority
of the legislature, and thus not only
control the State, but also the choice of
the Senator to succeed Senator Ran
som, Dr. Mott having both eyes fixed in
that direction and an ambitious hanker
p ing for Ransom's seat. The magistrate
and county government question is ore
of the cards he counts on playing in his
game if the Democrats don't play and
draw his hand before he can get the
lead and play the game himself. He
plans well sometimes, but he must not
be allowed to do ail the planning, nor
all the playing.

A ficrht has sprung up over the Ox
ford postoffice and right bitterly has it
been waged. Dr. Taylor, the present
incumbent, has withdrawn from the
contest in favor of John G. Jones, who
finds a strong, opponent in Manly
Jones. It is understood that J onn u-.
Jones is supported by ex-btate Attorney
General Hargrove, W. H. Young, C. M.
Rogers, of Statesville, Chairman of Ex
ecutive, Committee, H. B. Cozart and
others. Manly Jones nas petitions
from many prominent citizens, and is
backed by State Treasurer jenKins ana
C. H. Hester. The fight has become so
warm that First Assistant Postmaster
General Hatton, has decided to with
hold his decision until be hears further
from the Republicans of Oxford as to
their Dreferences. The matter will
most likely be decided next week.
While this fight is in progress in the
down town department the Treasury
is alive with North Carolinians who
favor either H. C. Cowles, of States
ville, T. N. Cooper,or David A. Jenkins
for Collector of the Sixth district. Mr.
Cowles is supported by Marshal Doug
lass, Mr. Cooper by Mr. Hubbs, it is un
derstood, and Mr. Jenkins by Col. Hum
phrey, and the majority of Republicans
here. At the present writing it is be
lieved that Mr. Jenkins stands the best
chance for the place.
In reference to the contest in the 5th
district in regard to Everitt and others,
Editions are still pouring in and it will
e some time before the matter is set
tled. While all these contests are in
full blast another one not yet ripe is in
contemplation. Cannaday's term as
Collector or Customs at Wilmington
will expire the last of tins month and
already several candidates are in the
field, prominent among them being the
old collector and Mr. Pennypacker. The
latter, it is stated, starts out with a
strong support and may give Mr. Can-
naday a tough light ror re-appoint-

Cbecke from tbe Stalwart Sco
yllle Resume Bie Argument;
Washington, Jan. 9. When the
court opened its 9th week of the Guiteau
trial tbe crowd filled every nook and
cranny of the cold room. Ladies were
decidedly in the majority.
The prisoner arrived at the court
house at 9.20, and was taken to his
waiting room. He appeared rather
nervous, and his condition indicated
anxiety. When he had taken his seat
in the dock he glanced around stealthily
over the audience and immediately
began a harangue evidently intended
for the jury.
I have received, he said, some eight
hundred letters, a great many of them
from ladies. When I get time I shall
attend to them. I want to send my
greeting to the ladies of America, and
thank them for their sympathy. They
don't want me to be hanged. Public
opinion is fast changing. I received on
Saturday a check for one thousand dol
lars from stalwarts of Brooklyn, and
another for five hunrded dollars from
stalwarts of New York. I want this
jury to understand how public opinion
is in this case.
A bailiff here tried to silence him,
when be turned upon him in the most
vicious manner and snarled out:
You keep quiet, and mind your busi
ness. Don't interfere with me when I
am talking. If you had any sense you
would understand your place.
With this opening breeze proceedings
in due form were begun, and Scoville
resumed his argument.
Scoville proceeded without interrup
for an hour, bis remarks being lis
tened to with marked attention. He
laid great stress on the proposition that
nine insane men out of ten know the
difference between right and wrong,
and for that reason conceal tbeir plans ;
that the benefit of the doubt should at
tach to the plea of insanity when raised
in this case, with the same force as
when raised in connection with the
commission of any other crime.
