is therefore proper for as to explain that
we took "holiday" Monday, and vent to
Gibson's School House to hear the candi
dates make their speeches and we fcearil
-.13 much of every kindof oratory, that
we came away feeling, we suppose, like a
fellow when he has taken two or three

one or two exceptions we shall only at
tempt to give the impression made ou us

together as if they had been shot out of a

of information than any cow iu tick-time
has ticks; nd when he gets up to make a
speech he literally fake's them as they
come." Well, Mr. BrurtngeT made his
speech he did. Of coarse he had to ex
plain how it happened he was again in
the field the irrcsistnble' and constrain
ing power of friend!' Every man has
friends, especialjy in election times; and
it often happen!) that a candidate's hat est
frient)s are men who hate some other can
didate and want himdefeatetl at all hazr
zards. Personal hatred govs- greater
lengths on" such occasions than strong
convictions of the worthiness of candi
dates, It ueyer stops to consider result

hating elector will vote for a loon any
thing just to defeat the man he hates;
aud he will do this and affect to lelieve
he is "doing X?od service." ' Candidates
are tlie blindest men in the world as to
the motce8 of their supporters. They
take them all in and ask no questions.
Mr. IJarrin ger is not an exception to the
rule, nor is it expected he should be.' But
it may be well to ask in the name of polit
ical consistency, of sense, of propriety and

claims to be ji deinocrat, has practically
shown through a history of ytars flint he
is totally unworthy of the honor; and has
on all important occasions voted against
.the Pemocratie'party; and down to this
day, all his disjointed arguments are lev
eled against tlie men and acts of the
democratic, party. Hut let him pass for
tlie present, and make room for

Mr. F concurred on all points. Ho pro

withdrawal from the canvass and tlie
reasons he -assigned for it and his pre

so deplorable as yon might suppose. A

In$anity. The fact is noted at rather
greater length than it is necessary for ns
to publish, that insanity is ou the increase
in England, France, and foreign coun
tries, and also in the northern,' eastern
and western States of onr ovfu cooutry.
It may also be true of the Southern' States,
but the New York Ob$errert to which au

we shall be glad to learu that Dr. G lissom

however, to prevent -much of the evil, if
the people wou)d only practice it. Live
temperately in eating and. drinking; don't

over-work, avoid anger, trust iu God and
keep his laws, keep the Sabbath, live

VANCE'S VIOLATED PLEDGE.
The former and well-known Senator
from Jackson, writes an extended letter
to the Xcrrs for publication, and he asks
the favor ohV.ie ground that he haR been
misrepivKeirFin these columns."
The letter is in reference to the memora
ble 'Senatorial contest of 1872, and is of
fered as a j.istification for the opposition
of Dr. Love and the Senators and Repre
sentatives who, with him, have been des
ignated "Merrlmou bolters," But the let
ter leaves him and them scarcely better
than it found them.
It is now asserted that the opposition
of Senator Love, and perhaps tho Others
acting with him, arnso from a violated
pledge, given by Gov, Vance, or a friend
for him, to resign the Senatorship by
Christinas 1870, if his disabilities should
not be removed and he admitted to a seat
in the United States Senate by that time.
It is not now remembered that that issue
was raised (luring UjP Senatownl contest
of 1872, and if it hat it would have hoev
promptly met and disposed of, for with
all due deference to Dr. Love, no such
pledge was ever given "or exacted, what
ever his impressions or the impressions oi
others may now be,
The Senatorial elections always occur
red near the first of December, and tt
Christinas would have given the Govern
or not more than twenty-five days to get
a bill introduced, reported and acted upon
iu both Houses of Congress, for the relief
of his disuhiliiies. No re sonable man
would have limited himself to so short a
time on a measure against which there
was much opposition and sure to be great
delay iu its consideration. It was tlie
open declaration, and a pldegc to the par
ty and tho public, that Gov. Vance, fail
ing of admission would-resign in time for
that Legislature to elect, he never contem
plating holding his credentials to run the
chances of a new Legislature that might
bo republican. To Dr. Martin, member
from Carteret, who introduced a House
resolution, March 12, 187 J , requesting
Governor Vance tn resign, and wjjo cor
responded with him, tlie Governor wrote
March 15: promised niy friends, who
supported me in caucus, to resign when
ever they wanted mo to do so, whether on
the first of January, fourth of March, or
any other time."
These friends did not request or expect
him to resign by Christmas or the fourth
of March. When the matter was under
consideration as late as the middle ot
j March, they did not intimate a wish for
llim t lvsiirn
On the contrary, as is well
! ixMiiCHibered by those who thonght he
should resign, and were urging him to do
so, it was the sense of a large majority oi
the Democrats that he should hold on un
til the next winter. "Senator Day mil, of
Delaware, and others," never "wrote
Governor Vance requesting him to resign
aud let another be elected iu bis place
who conld 'qualify." Hut Senator Pool
did write State Senator 'Cowles, March 17,
ftJ71, that tho disabilities of Governor
Vance would be removed at the next ses
sion, if not then, and he added : "If Con
gress remains in session two weeks he will
be relieved at this session." It was al
ways understood that the credentials of
violated pledge-.the caucus would have
owed it to itself and the Democratic par
ty to demand the credentials of one so un
worthy to bold theui uti'ler any circum
stances. "" .
In a letter to.. ..Governor Vanee, dated
Charlotte, January 17, 1873, Col. Hamil
ton C. Jones said : "Von desjre rue tu

These facts are r sufficient to dl rposo of

action of party disobedience, and which
he assigus as the ground of his opposition
and hostility to Governor Vance. Ral

many greenbacks as they- can honestly

manner of 'fraud and corruption iu the

the nominees of regular conventions,
(where no undue haste influenced their
call) as dividing to conquer is rather a
novel idea ! Salem Pres.

that the Democratic, party has introduced
bills and resolutions for the relief of the
