The New ifork papers have another first

she and her brother have been traveling in

' !?pf my thirtg qJNut these returning prodigal
it.re worthy of notice than there is about oth
r people. If jrioting abroad on the people's
money and being the of&pring of a first class
boor and brutal president entitle them to no
tice above other more worthy children, then
we do not envy them the publicity that has
been given them. There are hundreds and
thousands of children, helping their father on
the farm or their mother in the kitchen through
out the country, far more worthy of respect on
account of real worth and genuine merit : and
suchwe delight to honor. We have a contempt
for snobs and precocious boors. It is not wealth
t or position-that gives character or real worth

"lie asked that the Grand Jury msy be
brought into v court and specially instructed by
ilia jjonpr that to print and publish in a news
paper an article calling a man a scoundrel, is

though no special damage may ennetothe
party thna designated, and even if it be mani
festly absurd and preposterous for .such desig
nation to affect injuriously the character, re

clared by Ilia Honor to constitute a libel, asset
forth in the bill of indictment that Solicitor
Cantwell is seeking to have found by the Grand

According to Radical ideas of rignt and
wrong, and of justice, it is all right to turn North
ern convicts out of the Penitentiary, although
they are grown men and notorious thieves, found
guilty by a jury after a fair trial, but it is all
wrong to turn out young Southern boys, of ten
der age who, by promise of mild treatment,
were induced to plead guilty before a scoundrel
like Judge Bond, without an r trial at all
It is all right in Radical eyes to pardon the
Pennsylvania thief, but it would be all wrong to
parden the North Carolina Kn-Klux, so-called.
ine grown man lerkes goes free.
The boy Ramseur is in a felon's cell.
Can North Carolinians reconcile it to their
manhood or to llieir consciences to vote for
Grant? IfGrant is beaten Radicalism will die
ll lirant is re-elected Radicalism will live !"
Now this whole proceeding speaks for itself.
It is a villainous and cowardly attempt to throt
tie the Wilmington Journal; but it will fail
The reign of blackguards may have just begun
but that ihey can succeed in muzzling the press
of JSorth Carolina, is impossible. The people
can no longer be intimidated, the press wil
dely the thieves and scoundrels who rule, and
expose their venality. We don't suppose En
gienard and founders are much scarec. Thev
are made of sterner stuff.
The Charlotte "Democrat," speaking of the
report that Caldwell intended to declare the
Legislature just chosen to be illegal, and then
appoint John Pool U. S. Senator, says :
. If Gov. Caldwell attempts thewjuttage allud
ed to heftould be hurled from office without i
day's delay. If the members of the Conser
yative party take the trouble they ought to do
lo report to the Legislature the proof of radical

we would feel more disposed to vote to turn
oui me present btate administration than if
Mr. Greeley was elected. Grant and his hire
lings have already done their best to derad
Southern men. and we defy them to intimidate
in the future. If the Southern people (the
white men) will do their duty iu the future bv
going to the polls and voting for honest and
patriotict national men, the day is not far dis
tant when they will control the U. S. Senate
and drive out the miserable small-fry ioliiici
clans who now control the Government."
This is rather strong language for our usuallr
cool coiiiemporary ; yet it has the right ring
and the true sentiment
The election of Grant should not deter or
intimidate any body, and especially the State
Legislature, but it should make men more re
solute and determined to resist tyranny in
whatever form it presents itself. If our Legis
lature prove to be worth any thing in the way
of taking care of the people's rights and in
terests, the fact that Caldwell claims to be Gov
ernor and Grant possibly le elected Presi
dent will amount to very little. But ii .he
next Legislature should prove to be as undecid
ed as the last we think it would be better were
it never to assemble.
In 1870 the people of North Carolina de
clared in thunder tones against tyrannical gov
ernors, corrupt subservient judges, dishonest
underlings, extravagant and oppressive taxes.
If Ihe people's wishes had been carried out. not
only Gov. Holden, but every Radical Judge,
irom renrson down to greasySam Watts, and
other officials, against whom there were well
authenticated charges of tyranny, venality and
ncompetency, would have been impeached and
deposed. This is what the people exited,
and they were both disappointed and chagrined
at the utter failure of their representatives to
realize and execute what had been so well map
ped out for them. It was with some difficulty
thaf some members were induced lo impeach
lolden, and although Holden was a great cri
minal and richly deserved all he received vet'
ne was not more guilty than Pearson and other
iadical lights who had forfeited all chum or i
right to I official position by their monstrous'
crimes. ; The timidity or stolid indifference of
that Legislature to the proclaimed wbhesof
.ie pjeople has been the great source of evil to
our cause since. Not only the men who U.I
committed great crimes were permitted to co
uuwiopieu oi justice, out Tod Caldwell was
allowed to bully and spit upon the Legisla
ture with impunity.
We have hope of the recently elected bodr.
We think ka members are - for the most uart
composed of men who will discharge the du
ties iaeumbent upon them fearlessly and with
out regard to consequences. We are persuad
ed that there are no time-servers no ni;..
men among them. If this ia true, we shall
have a good report to make to our readers of

irom oraciai outrage and insult, front burden
some taxes and fraudulent puUSc debts, then
the day of their usefulness baa passed, and it
hroald be well for our people to take into con-
siderauo the propriety of dispensing with
Sublegislatures altogether, and prepare to
surrender to tbe general government. If the
Legislature has no authority and is unable to
protect the people from injustice and oppress
ion or to promote their prosperity as a State or
a community, then, what are its uses ? Where
is tie jnecossiiy of taxing the people to defray
the expenses of it 1 We say there is none,
But we say the Legislature, ha much power
(or good, if its members .will bat exert is it.
Good and true men will do their duty in the
Legislative balk of the State, or any where they
are sent, but the mere politician and the time
server will not. We have 'been sorely cursed
with these this long time, and they are respon
sible for the triumphs of Radicalism. When
the people resolve to select none but their best
and truest men, peace will be restored to the
country and prosperity and happiness to the
people. Until they do so resolve, and proceed to
act as well, the prevailing dishonesty among
public functionaries, the usurpation, tyranny,
fueial aod political disquiet, business stagnation,
bitterness, mutual distrust and lawlessness gene
rally, will continue to exist without abatement.
If our form of government is not indeed a
failure, (or if the people have not determined to
surrender and endorse the damnable innovations
of usurping radicalisms) the people yet have
the power to set all things right, and they are
really to blame for the wrongs they suffer, ao
long as they neglect to exert themselves to bring
about the desired change.

OLINA. Raleigh, N. C, Oct. 18, 1872.
The National Democratic and the Lib
eral Republican Committees have recent
ly held consultations hi New York and
surveyed the field of the Presidential elec
tion, to take place in the United States
on Tuesday, the fifth day of November.

the success of our nominees in this great
contest for peace and reconcilatioii, f-r a
pure and honest administration of the
government, and ihe preservation id the
acred principles of civil liberty itself. lit
this review ot the political situation, i hey do
not hesitate to say that much, very much
depends on the vole of North Carolina.

gross violations of the election laws oMiis

mode ofintimidatiou or corruption, nor

patronage, so freeby off-red by these who
live on public plunder and the taxas p.iid
by an impoverichi-d and oppn ss d people.
We urge you to vote a freemen, freely
and independently, in ihe full, intelligent,
and untianimt'lli d exercii'eof all the rights
of an American citizen, lie sure lo attend
your precinct, ia your own township, on
Tuesday the 5lh of November, and see
that your neighbors do likewise. Let the
legistiatiou books be closely ex uniued
previously, and proper challenges made to

day ox election, every attempt u! illegal

that a fair election and a full vote of our
Mentis, both I), morralic Consei vative ami
Liberal Republican., be cast at the lal-
lot box. TliN will secure a certain
triumph in North Carolina, and nn our
vote may depend the result of the Presi-
lential election. We therefore', earnestly
urge our friends to see In this in every
township in the Slate. And we especially
suggest that true and active men, some
five or six in number, in evi ry neighbor-
uooa oi every township, be appointed,
at once, call and see, in person, every
voter friendly to our cause and earnestly
insist on his going to the election, and, if
necessary assist in gettine him there, and
assure him that il is a general understand

to vote at I his election, ifeutitled to do
so. This duty is urged upon our fiiends
and expected to be done iu every town

ily attention has been called to the follow
ing article, copied from the New York Herald,
as I am in formed, by a number of tbe isiate pa

It has transpired ihat llichard Shot
well, one of ihe leaders of tin- Ku-Klux
Klan in North Carolina, and now con
fined in the Albany Penitentiary, pro
pored to a prominent nu mber of Congress
that if the Prosident would pardon him
be would theeifully take the stump and
labor for the success of thr Hi i.-.it.l lltft Si
and (lenoni.ee th- Ku Klux
Finding thai he wm
posed to jd.-ad for pardon, it was pn-js. d
to at-k if he would give evidence against
the principal . adets, such as lUnsom,
Vance and Mri iino.i. This Sl.olwell
declined wuh a defiant air, and -aid -would

that it, and oar people generally, bad

certain Republican Judge in my favor;
for which I thanked hira, but thought ii
hardly worth while for bim lo be at that

his own personal influence. Great ws
my astonishment therefore, to bear of his
letter to Grant, and 1 am forced to con
clude that it is a part of a scheme to ex
elude me from the benefits of amnesty
Hence this statement of fact. Urging
