ORGANISATION OF THE CON -
Just as we go to pros the news of
the orgauiz:it'oii cftlic Or. vent ion, by
the election for ihc President of Ed-'
Ward Ilnn.oiu Ind. I!e;ublitan, by the
Democrats, ovrr Dckc.y straight out
Republican. on the 14th ballot oya
majority of t ;.v . AVe will have more

A VICKU'S SVofEM,-.
Anterior to :hc advent of the car
pet sackcr and t!io apostscy of the
ecalJawags, in th'.'ir ' combination with
80.00!) ngro vctt-rs of the Stale, who
were at that time "invested- with the
ballot, not one of a thousand of whom
had a binglc idea of the vast and im
mense benefit or injury to result
from the correct or pernicious use (f
this potent weapon of a Republican
To be the nominee of a certain
party or faction m.is . all the (jualifica
.tion necessary in order for the most
illiterate and infamous parsons to got
the votes of this immense solid bkek
of voters, Though & man the day be
fore had been convicted of the most
heinous crime known to our laws,
were ho placed upon the Republican
ticket, ho might surely, count on all
Iho ignorant black voters, and venality
would carry the few white manipula
tors for him, and with, the extension
of the privilege of sufTerago to this
largo class of ignorant voters, these
men who were manipulating them,
knowing that their party would confer
places upon them vhieh their merits
never would attain, made all of the
Judicial officers from the Supreme
Court down to Jrstico Of the
1'cace, elective by the people; instead
of leaving it to tho Representatives of
the Legislature, where they can scan,
anu compare nnu eo':'rast a:ul weigh
tho qualifications of tho different appli
cants for these j hides' Under this
system, there sat uj ou the bench of
North Carolina, a Gaaton, a'lluffiin, it
Badger, a Mangum. a Iredell, a Cald
well.a (lilliam ami a numhor ( f ethes,
tut lights if any le.-s eminent for learn
ing and high intogrity, than these
named, many of wlso. e doeiions are
quoted with approval and high words
of commendations, wherever our g. aixl
system of jurisprudence is recognized
as the law of the land. There never
was theu so much m a hint of susni-
cion, that a bribe
fered or received Tourgce with his
liamld all f.Ilcd tuul his Cngers inter
woven with money received fiom aus
picious corruption fund. Watts with
lu8$.i.00Q. bribe Kcho and who
is continually pumitting clients to
talk with hi.ij concerning their cases,
and who in additi-m to that disgraces
tho ermine by public urunkness,- who
goes about the country .-dangcrhanging
jn which ho is joined by Ruxton nd
others of that ilk. Jaybird Jones
tho same who tho Legislature forced to
resign to avoid impoimhmcnt for his
misdoingx, oould iwt have sat upon
that IJonch. Nor would Pearson have
then made the public declaration, that
the Supremo Court withheld license
from white applicants to practice law,
that were better prepared than black-
applicants, whom they licensed, for
. tho reason that the white men were ex
pected to know some law if licensed,
and if hcenso was withheld rum the
negroes that it would bo attributed to
pro.udbo of race, tsuh a declaration!
Coming too, from tlio highest Judicial
officer in the State ! Our most fear-
lul torcbodmgs never contemjUted
that such ail utterance cuuld fall from
the lips of tho Chief Justice of the
Supremo Court of Nor Mi Carolina.
Could Taylor, or llufan or Nash ever
havo been reduced to this? A system
that can biing tho man that Judge
Pearson once wos to this must, indeed
be a fciiiieious vile age hellish in its
cocscqueDces. Iie. might as cll
charge if two men were indicted for
murder, one with lied skin and the
other with a . liluo ikin, both equally
guilty that the Kcd man should bo
convicted becans red skin men were
expected to Ino v l etter than to be
going about killing ppojde, while the
blue sum man .should. 'be acquitted,
for if thcjblue kin man was convicted
and "hung, it v.- uld ba alleged that it
was wjiim ri.uiiiv uwiiufc tic was iX
.1.. v i
black; skin uuuv. Language fails u's tt
characterize this dutlaration in tern s
suitable to its degree of infamj-.
Who believes that before 1S6S that a
Judge of the Supreme Court Would
have permitted a usurping Governor
to havo suspended tho writ of Ilabeus
'Corpus, beeause ho alleged that the
Safety of demanded it.''
Yes! I'taiMMi uiii tlil j. Ti.e tame

and successfully resist the armies of
the Confederate States. When be
knev7 to whom lie owed 'his place.
He knew that his term of oSce de
cried upon his good conduit. He in
"187U, and 1875 knew 'that .he held his
place at the will of 80,000 negro
votes, who did not know there was
such on office ap Chief Justice, but
who voted for anything and anybody
they were told to vote for by the few
mean white men who control the nt
groes, because they can maka money
and get high place by managing them.
The difference in the system then and
now make3 a great difference iu the
man tlen and now. We will pernio
this subject further-next week .
THE ORANGE CANDIDATE
Major W. F. Patterson is the candi
date to fdl the vacancy caused by the
death of Governor Graham. Ike
Younk and Billy Smith it is said will
canvass Orange to defeat the Majory.
They are too kite. The Major's great
grand father canvassed' Orange one
hundred years ago. His grand father
tanvassed Orange nearly one hundred
years ago. His father canvassed fifty
years ago, and the Major himself can
vassed and the votes arc all pledged
to him except the negroes and the
whites allies of Guthvio who said the
negro had no soul. ;
Ike and Brass-Eye Bill will find it
bard to draw the people from' a man
who has canvassed Orange by his good
acts and. deeds long before be was
nominated to office Let There be a
full turnout for" Patterson, on the lGtn
of September. Raleigh Sentinel.

the Courier, that Mr. Asns not only

in behalf of the good cause wherever

try, in our correspondence from tUat

the failure until collected, all debts
paid and engagement and obligations
ol the bank will; be regulated quittly
and prudently so as to restore confi
dence among merchants and relieve
the city of any anticipation of more in

are expected in their own interest
and in that ot the city to give
the syndicate a controlling interest in
the stock, and when the bank ia frte
from its obligations, and its assets have
been realized, any benefit accruing will
be distributed among the stock-holds
ers pro rato. . Assurance is given on
indispensable authority that the buai

meet tbeir bills, but aa effort will be
made to collect a3sets as soon a3 cir

the advisability of continuing J;hs old
