FIFTY BLANK WARRANTS.
Wb publisJied a few days ago a copy
of a letter which had been furnished u.
written by one (Jalvin Cox, a Radical of
Pitt county, to Marshal S. T. Carrow,
giving the naifies of certain persons whom
Cox charged with being disorderly, ask
ing that warrants be issued for thejr arrest,
and requesting that the Marshal send fifty
additional blank warrants, as there were
several other individuals in Pitt who were
not named, but iipoiywljom Cox was anxi
ous to vig)t4iifl direful vengeance. x
We do not know whether the blank
warrants were issued or not, but presume
they were, as over thirty highly'respecta
ble and honorable citizens of that county
were subsequently arrested, and taken to
Goldsboro, where they had a hearing be
fore IJuued States Commissioner Robin
son. Upon examination, they were all
unconditionally released, no evidence
whatever being adduced against them, to
show any violation of the laws of the
United States, aar charged by Cox. The
Commissioner, -who is a Republican, as
we learn from some of the prisoners them

WHAT HAVE WE TO EXCEPT t
If any people have cause for earnest,
unceasing work during the next three
weeks it is the people of North Carolina.
It ;8 posible, nay, it is even probable, that
the result of the Presidential ; campaign
will tarn upon the vote of this State. It
is not only possible, we say, but it is pro
bable, that the vote, of Nrh Carolina
will determine whether Horace Greeley
or Ulysses Grant shall be the next Presi
dent of the United States.
vVhat have we to expect from the elec
tion of General Grant I 1
For near four- years Presidtut Grant
haa administered the Government of the
United Statea with a systematic coutemp
tuons disregard of the laws of the country.
Almost his very first act was to disregard
a law that had beeu upon the tatute Book
from the foundation of the Government
almost. Ashe began, so has he contin
ued. Under his rule fraud, corruption and
violence have become the almost insepara
ble incidents of the administration of jus-'
tice, so called. Arbitrary, military law
has become a thing of common occurrence,
Blank warrants, in palpable, express vio
lation of the Constitution, are constantly
issucdand executed, to the great oppres
sion of the citizen,. These acts are of
constant occurrence. President Grant
neither knows nor cares how grossly he
violates the law of the land. An avowed
candidate for re-election, he cornea before
the people and asks their, suffrage under
a Constitution that he daily violates.
There is no need to go back to the unset
tled times that followed the surrender at
Appomattox Court House for proof of
our s-.atesments. There is no need to go
back more than thirty days to make up a
record sufficient to subject Grant and his
Administration to the odium of all good
meu for ages to come.
Let us recall a few Ucts that have come
to our knowledge within the last thirty
days for which the Administration of
President Grant is directly responsible.
InCleaveland county, in this State, one
of Grant's United States Deputy Marshals,
with a file of United States soldiers broke
up a meeting of the King's Mountain
Baptist Association, dispersed the people,
and arrested womeu and children at the
point of the bayonet.
I fl (iantA ill romi t V f h nn t ruin. a K v Iw.rl.fol '
,.; .. I l r . i . i
'imriB uaic utru ui on gnips a cnaracier (
thai David A. Jenkins, the Radical Treas- :
urer of the Sia , has publicly profercd
himself as wiluess to testify against ihem.
In Pitt county fifry of the best citizens
were arrested and carried to Goldsboro'
upon charges that were officially declared
to be frivolous and and contemptible.
In Savannah, Georgia, on the day of
election, fifty or sixty Deputy United
otates Marshals were secretly appointed,
and their pockets filled with blank war
rants, whereby they might arrest whom
soever they uiiht wish.
In Atlanta Georgia, a Federal officer
marched into a Court room with a file of
soldiers and thcie remained while the
Court was in session !
What a record tor less than thirty days !
All these violations of law have one
object, and oue ouly in view, and that is
to overawe and intimidate the people so
that they may be prevented from expres
sing their hostility and hatred to Geueial
Grant and his administration.
When such acts as these committed in
the broad light of day, without any pre
tence of concealment or denial, is it strange
that in the night time the peaceful inhabi
tants of a sleeping city should be awak
ened by terrible explosions, and leant that
another actof lawlessness has been commilt
ed ; that under cover of darkness an effort
had been made to accomplish in another
way what neither imprisonment nor at
tempts at assassination bad been able to
do the destruction of the freedom of the
press in North Carolina 1
Tha. the attempts to assassinate Mr.
I uruer, the attempts to assassinate his
wife, and the destruction of the Sentinel
printing omce were the estimate fruits
of tlio lea. ln..g and practice of
and lederal administration during the
last four years, we honestly believe,
lloldeu, Caldwell and Grant are respon
sible for the existence of a stale of socie
ty and of government, that permits such
crimes as this and thousands of others
equally heinous, to be committed with im
punity. A continuance of this state of things is
all we have a right to expect if President
Grant be re-elected. Under tin presiden
cy of Mr. Greeley we have a riht to tx
pr Ct, and will doubtless eij.iy, the bless
ing of an honest, constitutional Govern
Remember that the vote of North Car
olina may decide the qui i:in. Let no
man, ilieu, fail iu his duty.
KEEP COOL AND BE MEN.
The election riot in inciunati last
week ; the negro mob and murder at Ma
C n ; the accidental killing of two children
by the falling of a platform at the. Grant
meeting, aud ihe probable death of n. third,
at W illiWusburjjh ; the trmb spirit in
Arkansas; the amst of ihe Postmaster at
Bethlehem for the issue of fraudulent
naturaiizaiion papers ; the colonization of
blacks in Indiana and Pennsylvania, and
the fraudulent registry in Philadelphia -are
among the sad facts ot the present
canvass, aud no Government cau prosper
while they continue. Against the mob
spirit of the day, white or black, every
citizen, whether for Grant or Greeley,
ought to set his face as u flint. So against
all sorts of lawlessness aud personal dis
honor. Truth, justice, honor, decency,
aud good neighborhood are not to be
sacrificed to candidates, parties, or one's
passions. One's good name and conn try
should direct all who lead, and all who
follow. Heaven knows the country has
suffered quite enough from civil war and
violence daring the past ten years. N.J5T.

The following is the conclusion of Col.
A. K. McClure's linging address to the
people of Pennsylvania, after the election
iu that State.
We commend his stirring speech lo
those of our friends who may be disposed

the lines have not been completely suc
"Friends of good government let no
triumph of lawlessness deter you from
giving your best energies to the cause.
The highest prerogative of a free people
has been violently usurped by insolent
and debauched power, and the people
must resent it, and resent it promptly,
or give nnqueslionajble license to wrong.
Now, more than ever iu this contest, is
the election of Horace Greeley to the
Presidency a supreme necessity, if peace
and honest government are not to perish

Barclay, the young man who was hang
ed at Colambua, Ohio, on Friday last for
a moat brutial murder, consented that the
atudents of a' medical college iu that city
could have his body for experimental pur
poses, and ten, minutes after it was cut
down it was placed in a wagon and driven
rapidly to the college, where a powerful
battery had been placed io position for the
purpose of trying the'efiVct of electricity
as a medium to restore' life. . At tweoty
four minutes past one o'clock tix students
carried the body into the anatomical lee
turing room of ..the college, where were,
assembled the students, and all the promi
nent medical gentlemen of the city," It
was then taken from the coffin and-placed
upon the operating table. Tin pipit of
the eyes were found to be dilated and the
face discolored. The body was stripped
of its clothing, and at thirteen roinnlra to
one o'clock, thiity seven minutes after
death, the strudi-uU began operations.
The electrical instrument used was one of
the most powerful known, consisting of
six cups of liunsen's battery to Rirch'a
induction coil of the largest size. It was
operated by Professor M. ndeba.ll, an emi
nent electrician, while Professor Wormly
and Professor lioldermanand Dcnig con
ducted the experiment.""
Two currents of electricity were used
one placed at the lower extremity of the
body, and the other drawn along the arm,
neck face, breast. The effect was won
derful : the eyea opened, the face drew up
aa if in pain, the mouth jeikcd to one side
the arm raised as if to strike, and the firt
clenched. The limbs alio raised, and
the toes and fingers worked, and once the
body almost turned to one side, The
arms were next laid bare and a current of
electricity introduced. The whole sya
tern seemed to respond, and the movements
of the body were at timet violeuL At
four minutes to 2 o'clock the electricity
was removed, and faint actions of the mus
cle could even then be obscived. The
body was afterwards left till ten minutes
after 3 o'clock, when electricity was again
applied and the muscles of the body still
responed as before, but with lesa force.
The breast was then opened and a current
parsed into the heart, but it gave no re
sponse. It was carried lo the hands and
feet, and all responded as before. The
heart was theu taken, and found bard as
muscle and -full of blood, the lungs
not congested, the brain very healthy
free from any congestion whatever. At
11 minutes after 4 o'clock electricity was
again applied, and a good response was
had ; at 18 minutes after 5 a faint resnoi se
was given, and at 15 minutes to G, 5 hour
aud 35 minutes after death, the strongest
current that could be applied, failed to
move a muscle. The experiment exhibi
tion was then brought to a close, the
crowd dispersed, and the mutilated body
of John Barclay, was replaced in its cof
fin, delivered to the coroner, and givcu its
SWEDEN AND NORWAY.
By the recent death of Charles XV.,
King ol Sweden, his brother Oicar was
elevated to the throne. The new King earn
ed the reputation ot an intelligent, virtuous
Prince, when off ihe imperial seat, and
will doubtless leave the purple robe of
supreme command spotless lo his succes
sor. King Orcar rules over two nations.
His sceptre stretches over two kingdoms.
He is the head of Sweden and Norway,
which are united under a hereditary and
constitutional monarchy. The succession
to the throne is united to male line of the
family. Females are positively prohibi
ted fiom meddling with government affairs
in this part of Europe. The ruler of
Swedeu and Norway cannot exercise his
choice as to the matter of religious belief.
That is fixed and determined by law, aa
it is in Englaud, -and other European
countries. The King of Norway must
be a Lutheran ; that is indispensable as
loyalty to the occupant of ihe throne. In
the interpretation and administration of
the laws, ihe King is atsiated by a royal
council of ten eminent citizens. This
council embraces three privy councillors,
and the ministers of justice, war, marine,
finance, religion, foreign aud internal af-
lairs. Ihe diet, or parliament, is com-
posed of four chambers, representing four
estates the nobles, clergy burghers and
peasant, each of which haa its own hall
of assembly, and conducts, its delibera
tions without regard to the others. Tbe
regular sessions of the diet occur in three
years, but it may be called together often
er if necessary. 1 he sessions extend ov
er a period of three or four months. The
king has the power of absolute vote of all
legislative acts, but this counter-balanced
by the right of each chamber to appoint
boards of control and supervision, the da
ties of which are to keep n careful eye
upon the proceedings of the Supreme
Courta of justice, regulate the national
banks, the liberty of the press, the public
debt, the public treasury and in abort
nearly evety Department of domestic gov
ernment. Owing to the incovenience of
this system in some respects, several im
portant cbangea were made in 18GG, and
several important charges were ade in
1SG6, and this Diet now more nearly re
seruble ibe British Parliament of Lords
and Commons. None but believers in
the Lutheran faith can hold office in Swed
en, and citizens who abandon this form of
warship and adopt another, are punish
ed by the forfeiture of certain privilege

ing army of 100,000 men under a peculiar
system. Most of the soldiers are suppor
ted and maintained at the cost of the
lauded proprietors, and reside on' their
estates, in dwelling! provided for them
by said proprietors. Iu return for this

Sweden are united ao far aa the Severcifa

is an independent State, with the exeJo

is commander inhkf of the Norwegian

ouncil of Slate, wh'eh consists of Nor

A Chinese Custom. A most curious
Chinese custom is lhat of releasing spirits
of the departed from bclL If a medium
reports to the survivors of anyonedia
eased that their rrlalive is gone to the re-
gions of everlasting punishment, it at once
becomes their bonnden duty to release
him from pains. With this object certain
priests arc consulted, who provided five
common earthen tiles, which are placed
on the ground, one in the center and four at
the corners : in the midst are placed a num
ber of iumgea of persous cut out of paper,
and some mock money the lilea repre
senting hell, and ibe paper images a por
tion of its occupants. Each priest then
takes a kind of tuff in his hand, and they

j tile is broken by blows from tbe itaves,
and each priest sierea and rushes i-ffwiih
as many of the paper figures as be can
grasp, ihe atteudants beating gongs and
firing crackers to frightened the devQ
away, should he attempt to follow the to.

of the priests, the relatives are quite sata
