Uiken it "turn about" with Davie, and
lias never thpnght of insisting on any ad
vantage because of her superior strength j
at ballot box, though it is just about j
double t-hat of Davie. When Davie had.
furuUhed the Senator two tprw in sic-j
cession, Rowan would thep fnrnisl iMIfl
two terms ; and so it has gpne on for yearn j
witb very little contest uutU nmV- T!e

And Rowan furnil)ei hp candjdato jq
m, 1870, and. again in 187fl. ft will be
pbacrved that each county has held it two
terras in succession ; am tbnt cpuuting
from 18Q4, Davie has had it ar perms
an4 Iowfju three terms. xThis Js
record shows, and we caupot understand
why there should, be any controversy oyer
so si" pie a question of arithnjetct
4t has beet said tliat "accoruiug tp ftp
ngrecnieut between tle wo counties, en
tered into Jn 1876, Rqwan was tp have it
far' that term and 137g." Tbjs statenjen
was nade on oral testimony, and as com
jng from a gentleman in Davie, whose op
portunities entitled him to Huow the facts.
But let tlit be waived, -for it is really of
po yajue as against the record, which-
plaiuly and undeniably shovrs that Rowan
must-have it in 178 in order to put. her
eyep with Davje, It cajinot change the
record to deny that any such agreement
was made, .neither would an admission
change it. It is immaterial to the ques
tion in hand it may be left out or taken
in and still wo come back to the main
point: Davie has had the Senator four
terius and Rowan three terms." Now if
Davie must have it five terms to Rowan
three terms, it cannot be her purpose to
observe the ancient rule, and it acquits
Rowan of all blame for the present conflict.
Hence we said two weeks ago, "we do not
sec how Rowan can recede."
But Rowan has another reason besides
the record for her cour :c : The name of
Mr. Henderson had been pnt in nomina
tion in Rowan and several of onr primary
meetings ljad dechiredJn favor of him, all
of which was published in this paper some
days (if not weeks) before it was known
that Davie would object. We had there
fore committed ourselves, axid it was too
lata to recede, except and alone on the
ground of error j and as there was no er
ror, of course ye cquld not go back ; nor
cau we understand why our friend have
become so desperate as their nation at
South River on Saturdaj- shows.
Do they object to Air. Henderson perr
sonally 1 There is pp peed to sieak of
bis character and qualifications, for they
are almost as well knowu in Davie as in
Rowan. He is one of the r'mmj. men
in Rowan one in w'hom her citizens
confide wjth unshaken faith. Th
pepple of Davie county know this. It
is no secret but kuqwn throughout
the State. And yet it is suspected that a
few pergons in Davie, who are controlling
the opposition ipovement there, would
willingly adnjjt $0 right of Rowan to an
nounce tlie candidate for the Senate if
she would drop Mr. Heiiderson and take
up some one else more acceptable to cer
tain men in Rowan. Mr. Henderson is
not one of that happy class who is "with
out an enemy- In the ? world." lie has
cqeniies. They are jealous of hiui, and
they dread tp see iijin' ruiug.. And they
will keep him down if the? can. There
is a thousand ways iu which their oppo
sition may be brought to bear, not be
cause Mr. Henderson is more vulnerable
thaa other pi en of his age, but because of
the ingenuity and sleepless, yigilence of
If this conjectured cause of difficulty
has any foundation in fact, it will not be
relinquished for anything tliat may be
said in commendation of Mr. Henderson;
for in bis popularity is to be found the
secretcauseofhate. Ifou the other hand,
there is no such feeling towards Mr. Hen
derson or those who are known to be his
friends in Rowan, then we are simply
Overwhelmed. with amazement at the an
pmotous condition of the two counties.
P. S.-rrSince the above was, put in type
we have received a communication from a
gentleman in Dayfc, signed "V." from
which we learn tho diftjauHy originates in
the date at which the ppnnt is. begun, Da

superfluous words or attempts at joli sh

young men ip regard to selecting a busi
