NORTH CABOLINA OFFICE-SEEK- EKS TO THE FRONT 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 ern friends. 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. The Raleigh News-Observer men tions the names of Judges Moore, Bux ton, Albertaon, Faiicloth, Russell and Seymour who are urged for the United States district judgeship for the eastern district oMhis State made vacant by the death of Judge Brooks. Small-pox has caused a stampede at Fayetteville Arkansas, where the dis ease is spreading rapidly notwithstand ing the efforts of the authorities. The Wilmington Star of Sunday pays a glowing tribute to the memory of the late Judge George W. Brooks, who died at Elizabeth City last Friday.

All North Carolina appears to be here now or at least that portion of it that is represented by the Stalwart Republi can element. The colony is mostly quartered at tbe National. Among those wnom your correspunueu. uas run across are Col. L. W. Humphrey, of Goldsboro.Col. Deake, Asheville News, Judge Faircloth, of Goldsboro, H. C. Cowles, Ot etatesviue, juarsnai j. jo.

Any fair afternoon the whole colony may be found at the National discussing the prospects of the Republican party in North Caroli na ana tne lmmeuiaie prospects ui themselves for the various offices now in contest. 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- ment. The report of the revenue marine service lor tne past year is just out, showing that last year property to the amount or S2,750,sssj oo ana hi lives were saved by this agency.

Ladiea SHU Eager to See tbe Show Tbe Prisoner Nerrone He Send Greeting to tbe Laoies, and Tbanlu Them for Tbeir 8ympathy,-Two 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.
