Franklin Courier - 1 " i . j"i " r GEORGE S. BAKER, ' ; Editor and PnopniETOu. All letters addressed to Geo. S. Baker, " Friday .Jrxni 18 1875. for the Convention, Tho Rncllrml Timlo .Ttim Tl IS'" tt-o Hlielveitl I 0n Saturday lat In obedience to a tall of Jno. 1J, Williamson, a small number of the Radicals of this county met b the Court House hi this place to nominate a candidate, as they said ngainst Convention. Having our curioaity excited a3 to what would be dune, after a few ringings of the Court House bell we made our way to that ancient forum of justicc,and found the thinnest meet ing, by far, of the kind that we have ever known here. The first tiling that we heard was somebody putting Judge Watts in aoiniuation for Chair- wan. The Judge Reclined to pre ide na he said just then. Thereupon Nick JPilliams of Franklin tt-u moved that John Williamson be made chairman, which was carried. John said it was customary for the presiding officer to return thanks for the honor. That he alwsyi esteemed it a very high compli ment to be called upon to preside over the deliberations of a meeting of his Fellow Citizens. Then somebody nomi nated John Watts for Secretary. He said he could not accept. Then Buck Tucker, who had hid off in one corner of the house, was called out of his hole to the table in the bar, and he and a black negro whose name yc miss- iu, were made Decrctanes. jiere a I all in the proceedings enabled ps to can the crowd and to ascertain its com ponent elements. c missed several faces that had hitherto been familiar in - -9 WW these meetings, frau Hawkins . was ' not there with his inspiration, (.'apt.. Chas- Thomas was not there to enthuse the brethren with his earnest and forci ble elonuencc. Neither was Frank Bullock prcseut with his bland man. tiers and winning ways. Perhaps. he thought it was not dignified for an as pirant for the nomination to be on hand, and that it would appear more seemly to be addressed by the Chairman of Tnnohmf rr n trmim tit nr in ttr vifi rifirY and that the letter of notification and Teply should be published in the " Ei ( y' At any rates ho was not there. And we missed several other familiar faces, who we thought might have been on hand. A proposition was made that the : delegates from each township, meet in a private room and nominate a candidate. The roll of the townships and a list of the drlegates being called. John Williamson arose and said he desired to submit a few observations before the delegates retired, He then proceeded to detail a eulogistic history of his political career as he said from I860 to 1874, when Tom Mitchell turnedhis p-t of fat into the lire, and not even a crackling was saved out of tho rums, bald that he had done the besthe could in the campaign, but; went down with his party throughout the country which could not stand up Against the load of corruption that it had to carry, together with the Civil Rights bill. Said he had been told with in tho last day or two by a white man of his party that it would not do for him (John) to run, that ho was a negro and white folks would not voto for a nigger. "My God P he says, that ' is what we have boon told by the other Aide, that the white men of our party only wanted us so long as we could be used by tThcm to their advantage,' proved to be true so soon ! Are the niggers to bo lead all tho time aud never to lead ? Said ho was not a can didato for tho nomination. Rut did not say he would not taks it if fjjvul upon Jam. Ahen John finished Judge Watts was ca'lod,fbut said he was not ready at that moment, tl at he desired to address the Convention when .1 3 It . 1 i mi me a.iys laoors were nnisncu. l ne delegates. then filod out to register the decree of the wire puller. As they pass-xl us wo scanned closely to sec if there Tvas a single white m n among them. And have not yet seen him - VV then TnMrml fruni th nvf Jrt v -vyci upon our return, the tjelegntes oamo in and announced that they had noni inatcd Mr. B. F. Buihck Jr. of Frank anion, as the man for Col. Green to knock down. Tho announcement was received coldly, without a particle of applause so laras we heard. Thus was received the , registered order of the Btnng manipulators of the Frankliuton ! ' TT 1 m-mv .. .. Clique, mqge uatis oeing again call- ed for, ascended the judges stand, and anuouncca, ui.-H it mere was any per- present;. d. !;lie notes that he desired him to do so. He then commenced the usual Radical harangue, and all the way. through, as he' thought he was making a gocd point, he request ted that it be put in the papers. The Judge showed great anxiety to have us publish his speech, and it. w uld be pleasing to us to accommodate him, and re would do so, had the Core, eu not entered into contract with rcveral bun drcd gubacri!t;rs to ft:niih thfm a pa per for twelve montd.-?, filled. wh. re spectful, decent, usef ul and eritertai n -ing reading matter, and this might sub ject us to numberless actions at law for I reach of contract. We hope the Judge will excuse us when he takes this view of the matter. After the Judge had delivered him self, John was again called out, and gave in his adhesion to t.he nomination of Mr. Bullock. And thus has the sceptre departed from (not Judah) but Africa. The days of the colored man in getting any of the Radical loaves and' fishes in Franklin are gone- Henry Fuller is serving his last term as County Commissioner. When the Radicals next make County nominations here, all wiill be white men, if they can find a sufficient number to reach round. 'I he niir-jrer .must take a back seat. Their CO leading man is already laril by, and a white man who was on the other side when John says he was making great sacrifices for his race, is now put in his stead. Judge Watts read a string of reso lutions which he said had been handed to him to introduce in the meeting, but which were manifestly the ofifshot of the Judges ingenious and fertile brain The meeting tKcn adjourned. For the Courier. Mr. Editor :- I am lying still, awaiting the maturity of plans to go to work on mv Mining Lauds, I find work is so pleasant to me that I pro- pose to take another tilt at the Fort Worlh Standard. We are told on the highest authori ty, "that charity suffercth long and is kind that charity never failcth &c. But Mr. Editor thai truth of history must Lo vindicated. I told you in my last that I might take occasion to dissect other par's of that most ex traordinary statement. ''The richt of the JMtish crowu to tbe old Porterage Church was never brought into ques tion. And why not because the 'British crown' (unless it might be up on some principle of 'eminent domain,' which it would take too much of your space ' to elucidate, never had any rights in the matter") but has not the Vert yarth SUnulaul heard of the MecMinburg Declaration of Indepen dance and the lafe "Centennial celebra tion at Charlotte with such great eclut? Docs he live beyond the reach of the Telegraph and the postal line of the nation? Does he not know that on the 4th of July 1876 that the Cen tennial of American Independance is to be celebrated in the city of Phila- delphiu? Certainly the writer must havrhcard before he left North Caro lina that Lord Coruwallice on the l'Jtii of October 1791, surrendered his sword to General '.Washington then ...i xii- t. wny unit now ,or me rights ot tne British Crewn in North Carolina? Since the ' surrender of his Majrestie's armies at York Town and the subse- qaent acts of the Continental Con- rrcss in connexion therewith, tint avpti the most loyal subjects of great Rrit- I Cj -w.- tain have set up any territorial rights in North Carolina or in any other htato except in some matter of dis puted boundary. The subjects of grants and charters i from the sood Queen Bess lo Sir Trailer flalcish the suoscqucnt changes under Charles the second and the Georges, are ex ceedingly interesting matters and es pecially to imaginative Editors, who writo bold articles based on fk-tiong aud fantuuis of their brains, without the least foundation of facts. ' At some other tirna Mr, Editor I may drawj'ou an article on these His-' torical subjects, but to save your space for the present. I will consider other portions of the. SturdanU ar- ticic. lhe statement ruaue-by the vrriter as to the high attainments of the Ur.a i-encer is not too highly drawn. Dr.' Erasmus in 1861 visited his friends here and especially the vcoues of his -infancy and carlr lift. - . - I passed some most agreeable hours IVlMft 1 . l i rlli a X ...iu uiui mjii'uu- aiUUUU i 0T1I It dehghted my heart to see him quaff again the classic waters of the Male Academy fpring which have been drunk if by so many illustrious ..ien, lie told rao of his tender emotions on liw .entering again the uld fau.ily mansion, especially in call in ;r Up i his mind tho rrcnUection? of his Ion UiC'tiFod mothcr-r-her pangs in givin birth to hiai and hi distinguished brothers and 'sisters.- His Ligheait heavCd and his full jbjo dropped large tents as kc spoko oa this intsrcstiu& sut iect. I . TJut Mr.. .Ilditor; therr, i aHwr part of the "unwritten History" of j the zianat a tm.ust notice, but L,do I it only to vindicate the trqth of history. The writer' says, "that when the writers mother purchased it, it be longed ty Dr. Richard Fenner and when our mother died the land with the old ; stately oaks was bought by Col. Henry I. G Ruffiu &c. Now Mr. Editor there seems to me to be some strange hallucination about this writer, lie knows nothing coi rectly, about this matter of the transfer tf the let ters of the "old hip roof, he misrep resents every thing iu connection with the subject matter, as badly as he did the difficulty between Jeffreys and Early. The man is certainly enchan ted. I thiuk I can see the maic of lladin's lamp in this last matter of his mothers purchasing th land of Dr. Richard Fenner. He must have met the Genii crying oui, "who will give old lamps for new? He must have exchanged so as to get possession of the wonderful lamp, 'by the magic of which illadins palace was completed in a single night. To throw away all encbantme illusions and magic, the writer would be astonished to know that his statement is in positive con flict with the Registrar of Deeds. The record says that Dr. Richard Fenner sold his tract of land to Mrs. Sally Kilpatrick, the sister of our distinguished citizens Henry I, G. Ruffin, und that the Col as the agent of his sister paid the money in the year 1823. Then the record goes on to show that after the death of the excellent lady, Mrs. Kilpatrick, which occured about 1841, the same old 'hip roof" was sold in pursuance of a clause in her last Will and Testament by Dr. Sam.. R. Haywood her Executor at which sale Col. RufBn become the purchaser and- tradition says that neiiher, a Williams nor Sanders have ever livtd at the "old hip roP eveH as a tenant at will, much less as pur chaser from Dr, Fenner, within the memory ofthe oldest inhabitant Now Mr. editor you ask me to pre pare you a history of the raids of the great Robber Blue Beard, who was h ing many years ago njar Lynches Creek. Allow me to say that the facts in connection with thatburicd transaction are so few that it will be difficult to write the history in a clove" way, unless I can by some ne?i:s got under the influence of the magic lamp, which 1 am justified in supposing is in the Standard Ofiee at Fort f"erih Texas. If you will gt me under in spiration of Alladins lamp or Don Quicksit's lance, T will write you the history, of the alTair, with about as much truth as the Staru-ard writer did in his article, which you published. T. K. T. How happy arc they Who the editors pay, And have squared up for ono year or more. Tongue cannot express The great joy of the press. When delinquents, hae paid the old score. Printers 11 the day long Labor hard for a song A fate that is hard, all agree They have worked night and day, And of course want their pay, To buy sugar, coffee, and tea. One would hardly believe, "What sma 1 sums they receive, For the paper addressed to each name Hut the price is so small, That the good people all, Will pay up for the fear of the shame !
