COXFKRVATTISM vs RADICAL

During the 'time from Marcli, 1868, to
rJoYCtnbcr, 1870, tht- stale was under the
absolute, rule of 'the radicals and nulical-
ittf. During that time radicals, I in the
interests of " carpet-baggers " and noted
rubbers and thiurc, undertook to enrich
tlfmielves out of the people and their

THE jWIFE OF CARL SCUURZ.
A a interesting Incident of the Great Speech of the
I MMOri Senator; '
A Washington letter to the N. Orleans
Times says :
The ieffbrt made by Carl Schurz will
! be bug remembered as one of' the most
remarkable exhibit of oratory ever wit
nessed in a ehamber famous for such
display. Those now living who can look
back - with knowledge to the day when
Webster Clay, Calhoun and Corwin were
wont to charm the ears of hearers in that
forum, rcady admit that this effor: of
Senator Schunc towers above them all.
Thii is say ing much, for the natural in
clination is to exaggerate the past. The
orators' of a former day were remarkable,
but;tUi oue of ours is a wonder. Sri ator
Schurz, has a remarkably clear and rather
piercing voice. He speaks with a great
comnand of language and a somewhat
German accent, but so far as choice of
words and construction of sentences are
concerned, in the purest English. For
hours -he held that vast astenibly, aud
when le closed there was a strange ming
ling of relief and regret such us one feels
at the end of a beautiful and tragic opera,
when the last strain pours out as the cur
I happened to be witness to a little
scene of domestic beauty that was to me
exceedingly touching. Mrs. Svhurz, wife
of the Seaator, is ore of the most beaoti
fu and accomplished women in Washing
ton. Her experience in social life has
not diminished her sweet German iiatnre
that is as impulsive and gentle as a child.
Sh'e had read, as 1 subsequently learned,
the attack made by Senator Conkliug on
her husband, aud wife like she thought it
terrible aud aiiauswerable. Ou the Tues
day Senator1 'fcburz was to reply she
wandered about restlessly, and at last
unable to control herself, about 3 o'clock
went to tbe Capitol. She thought he
would have concluded by that time, aud
all for good or bad inuit be over. At
the first; entrance she found the doorkeep
er with his head thrust inside. She asked
lor her husband.
f' Oh J madam," cried the man, " he's
making such a speech ! Come in; alt the
ladies are on the floor.
She Held back, and a page lmrryin": in,
brought out Senator Sumner.
Do come hi," begged the Massachu
setts orator, " and hear your husband in
the grandest effort that ever fell from hu
Over persuaded, she was led through
the crowd to a corner, where t-he dropped
iuto a seat kindly offered her. She droop
ed her f;iir head into her hands, hiding
icr face,' and we can imagiue heard that
deiir voice in vindication and in such an
earnest appeal to the American people for
ustice to ourselves and purity tor our
institution, while the immense audience
responded in deep silence ; or wild ap
plause. H hen that voice ceased and at
ast she! looked up, her eyes were wet
ith tears. Woman-like, she had found
relief iu weeping.
Speedy Justice A gentleman just from
Warreulon, informs us that during the

THE NEW HAMPSHIRE ELEC-
It seems tolerably certain from tho re
turns received that tht Republicans have
carried New .Hampshire by si small ma
jority. It hzs becu a. contest between
the uiiaulvd Democratic citizens of the
State on one side, and the 11 publicans
reinforced by every kind of outside ad
ministration inflawice on the other. The
supporters of Grant liavc poured hi speak
ers and money, and their desperate efforts
seem to have beents ucccssful. But if the
Federal patronage had been in Demo
cratic hands, if the State had bcu can
vassed by noted Democratic speakers
from every part of the country, and there
had been a profuse expenditure of Dem
ocratic money, noboidyn .doubt that the
majority" would have beeu the other way.
The small Republican majority is the
consequence of outside weights thrown
into their side of the scale.
In 18G8, Grant carried New Hamp
shire by about 8,000 nnjority ; but now
after strenuous and desperate exertions,
he has barely saved it by a pilifal major
ity of perhaps 1,000 ; which shows a
great ebb in his popularity since he was
elected President. In 1SG8, the Federal
patronage was iu the hands of Andrew
Johnson and wielded against Grant ; but
now, with the patronage in his own hands
and most unscrupulously used, his major
ity ianmvrc bagatelle compared with
what it was then. The Democratic party
is satisfied with this result. It confirms
the certainty of Giant's renomination,
precludes the taking up of any otln?r can
didate who might reunite the Republican
party, . and though last not IcaM, it re
movvgjhe last vestign of danger that any
poriion of the Democratic party -will
protest ag.iint the complete abandonment
of dead issues. Ar, Y. 'orld.
VALUE OF THE CAT A LP A AS A
At a meeting of the Montgomery
County, Ohio, Farmers' Club, held Janu
uary 10, the following communication
from Mr. E. E. Barney, in regard to the
value of thet'atalpa tree, was read :
While in St Louis, last spring, Win.
R. Arthur, Siierintendeut of the North
Mi.-souri Railroad, informed me that he
had planted portions of his farm, in Il
linois, with Catalpa trees, and now had
large groves of that tree thirty feet high,
which, in ten years from time of planting,
would make four railroad ties each, which
at the present price of tie, (the price ad
vances each year), wrmhl yield four times
the net profit that can be realized from
the same number of acres iu grain or
stock. He stated that for fence-pot-i,
the Catalpa excelled red cedar, and that
for railroad ties it was practically indes
tructible; that it held a spike as well as
oak, and did not split.
Subsequently, while passing over the
Kairsas l'acihc Railway, wliere for hun
dreds of miles there is no timber suitable
for ties, iu company with Judge Upaher,
of Indiana, I called his attention to the
importance of making provision fop the
tature wants of the road by plaining
groves of trees, aud related what 'Mr.
Arthur had stated iu relation to the iude
strucpbility of the Catalpa, its rapid
growth mid adiptabil.ty lor ties. He said
that the statement recalled what some of
the oldest citizen of Vincennes had said
to him years before, in relation to the old
stockade built by the lirt French settlers
of thai place, of log cut from the Catalpa
tree, that grows native in the forests
there. These, when removed from the
ground, nearly one hundred years after
they had been placed there, wereperfetly
souiul, and g ive no indications of decay
It occurs to me these statements are
worth the careful consideration of our
farming community. If ihey are facts,
every laruicr lias within reach a sure
source of income from a single acre of
laud, exceeding what he can command
ordinarily from ten acres. By plantin
one acre cich year, hu can, alterten years
cut ties or posts from one acre each year
In this latitude, the Catalpa crow, very
rapidly, and, when planted iu groves, tall,
like torest trees, i rom a single acre,
growing two hundred and fifty trees, in
ten years oue thousand ties can be cut,
which, if an oak tie that most be renewed
every eight years, cosjs lifiy cents, will
readily command one dollar each. Al
lowing one-half lor expense of planting,,
cultivating, a'nd getting to market, the
farmer bait fifty dollars per year per acre
for his investment.
I need not speak of our rapidly disap
pearing native forests, and the absolute
necessity of supply on every farm of
groves of forest trees, to replace them.
There are three species indigenious in the
Southern Southern Slates, two of which
are cultivated as ornamental tress iu urnst
of our cities ; oue baring large white
showy flowers, bloom two weeks earlier
than the other, which has large purple
flowers. They can both be propagated
from the seeds or cuttings of the root.
The wood, though light, is very compact,
of fine texture, and susceptible of the
most brilliant polish, its fine straw color
producing a fine effect in cabinet work.
Trusting you will present the facts to
the Society over which you preside, in
such way as will result in a thorough and
systematic trial of the results ef Catalpa

They went to the jun' room. The sher

A CANDID 'ADMISSION.
The Era admits its jwrty lias rained
the University. It admits that tbe pri
son! mangement thereof is a disastrous
failate. In Us issue of Tesday that pa
per says i
fit baa been a standing admission of Revub
lican erer since the ' peewit Incumbent wa
elected President of the riiirerslty, that the or
ganization wa a signal .failmae. Hut no great
ha been the uiOnence of the friends of tli in.
ei'niWnt that be has been retained, not onK t
the destruction of tht L'airersiiv, Lot to' the
reproach of lUpublicanum in North Carolina."
The JiVa' rjarty laid its iropioo hands
on our Sate Lniversity and tha'. institu
tion, once the pride and ornament of X.
Carolina, soon fell a victim to tht cnti
tarninating touch of Radical incompe
tency and Radical malice; (
The Ei a attribute the "signal f-iilwns"
to the present incumbent. But that Is
not tho only reason, nor the chief one.
Mr Pool may be nnfitted for his position
and incompetent to conduct the institu
tion ; but the main cause of fall of Chapel
Hill w.-is because the tcifhering blifjhl t,f
imtiy seized upon its vitals, and teitliered
its prosperity ! Because Radical Profes
sors, illiterate and unkown, were impor
ted from other States, to degrade and
dishonor the seats once occupied by
learned and devoted teachers who "mag
nified their professions" and honored
their high calling. Because Radieal loy
alty and zeal, not competency and ex
perience, were the passports to the favor
of the Trustees. Because the partisan
Faculty was unable to gain the confidence
or respect of the public satich less their
countenance and encouragement.
. 1 lie Iwrt says the present incumbent
has been retained on account of his great
personal influence, even t4to the deduc
tion of the University." Now, this is a
candid admission. Tht Radical Trustees
permit the University to be destioy&d by
its own President, whom they refuse to
remove because of "the great influnnce of
his friends!" In order to keep a party
favorite in officp, they arc willing to see
the University tonplc and fall, and bo
come utterly demolished ! Rather than seb
Sol. Pool ejected from a snug berth, the
Radical Trustees say let the Universiiy
perish ! The welfare of tbe University u
made secondary to the interest of one in
dividual. What care the Trustees for
tho interests of the people of North
Carolina what care they for the educa
tional system of the State what care
they for the prosperity of the University,
so that Sol. Pool lives !
But says the Era, Mr. Pool ha been
retained to l4the reproach of Republic
canism in North Carolina." 'no iliac
bit It ryinaa ! This then is the reason why
the Jtcjiublican Trustees propose now to
re organize the Trustees and Faculty of
the University. The management has
brought reproach not upon the Cniver
sity itself nbt upon its once glorious
and honored name not upon the cause
of education by prostituting it to theigno
blc purposes of building up Radicalism
Ob ! no, but because it has brought 4re
p roach upon Republicanism in North
Carolina !" Heaven save the mark!
But the management of the University
by the Radical party has been no greater
failure than its management of the finan
cial and legislative detriments of the
State Government. The word failure is
written on every thing that has fallen un
der tho fatal auspices of that psrty. Mis
management, incompetency, dishonesty
and fraud have characterized its every
step in every position iu which it has been
tried. The "reproach which has been
brought upon Republicanism in North
Carolina" has been brought by its own
crimes by a course of unprecedented
corruption, open bribery'and judicial out
rages. Hal. Xeics.
What will the republican, f arty do

who is a presidential candidate against
Grant and his extravagant and corrupt
administration. Davi. will be counted a

The democrats of Nevada, throngh the

AID AND COMFORT.
The unhallowed and diabolical acts of
outrage aud atrocity which have been
perpetrated on the defenceless people of
the South under Radical reconstruction
so-called, were uot consummated by the
Carpet-baggers alone. The unjust meas
ures of Congress on the subject of South
ern legislation would never have passed
but" for the treachery and base misconduct
of s me of our native citizens. The
untold mischief that has been entailed
up. n ns by Radical rule, has not been the
work of strangers alone. Tho Carpel
