The above article reminds me of a
questionwhich I heard asked in a con
gregational meeting- not long since,
viz: "Are .they members of the
the church?" The class of persons
referred to were delinquent subscri
bers to the minister's salary When
tho deacons reported a number of sub
scribers in arrears some one iu the
congregation promptly inquired as
above. , t, -

SKETCHES OF RADICALISM ,
Salisbury Examiner. ; s ;ki
The people of North Carolina need but
robe Informed of the character and pur
poses of Radicalism, of its atrocious deeds
of violence and bloodshed, of its cruel tyr
anny and wanton usurpations of power,
of its base duplicity and shameless rogue
ry, to cause them to spew it ont of their
mouths as an unclean thing. The fact is,
thej hare not been kept informed as to
the doings aud nature of this pestlvemus
faction. Democratic speakers and Dem
ocratic newspapers have been too timid.
They have coudoued rather than exposed
tle wrongs under which the people are
groaning. The great masses of tire peo
ple have been so hard pressed to make
provision for their families and keep away-
poverty from the door, as to become in
different in a measure to what has been
trapnsiring around them. Radical lead
ers have taken advantage of these circum
stances and pressed their suit with all the
ingenuity, chicanery and persistency of
men reduced to the alternative of life or
death. The result is the people have
been deceived and have grown indifferent;
and many calling themselves good Dem
ocrats even fawn upon and rejoice over
the triumphs of some of the dirtiest of
thesei most unscrupulous Radicals iu
achieving place and power. They seem
not to be couscionsof what they do. They
seem tohave forgotten, if they ever knew,
that the Radical party and those who
support it, are responsible for all the woes,
tears, and blood with which the country
haB been ahiicted for the last twenty years,
They seem not to know that the Radical
party and its leaders have stripped our
free Democratic government of law and
order, of nearly every attribute of liberty,
and are still encroaching upon the lights
of the people and centralizing all the func
tion sof authority as if preparing the way
for a despot to rule over us.
But the jKMtple should and must be in
formed; andsofarnsthe Examiner is con
cerned, it shall be the object of these
sketches to revive the memory of those
who may have forgotten the past history
and bloody deeds of infamous Radicalism.
To a proper understanding of its black
record of crimes, it is necessary to go
back to the establishment of our govern
ment. Yea, we can trace the cloven foot
of tho party which has ruled since sixty
one and well-nigh ruined the country,
from the landing of the Mayflower on a
cold bleak December day ataplac which
they afterwards named Plymouth. To
tho landing of this vessel on our coast,
in sight of Cape Cod,, freighted, as it was
with a band of Puritan whiners, canters,
reformers and seditious disorganizes, may
be traced all our woes, religious and po
litical, past, present and futnre. They
first rled from England for their own good
and for England's good, pithched their
tents for a lew years in Holland ; but as
the Hollanders were not any more friendly
to' their unsocial and seditious ways than
the good people of England had before
lcen, they embarked and sailed for wil
derness America. Here they planted tlie
poisonns vine of Puritanism which is sy
nonimous with all that is base and repul
sive in politics, morals, or religion.
Puritanism aud hatred are convertablo
terms, says the Old Guard. Hate some
thing, it continues, the Puritan must; and
this hatred is always directed against
some endowment or attainment denied
or unattainable by itself. Xo sooner had
the Puritans seenred a footing on the
bleak and rocky coast of Massachusetts,
than they fulminated the most foolscap ed
icts against Roman Catholicsthough there
were none of that creed within hundreds
of miles of them. Holidays and Saint's
days were prohibited, as well as the great
festival of the true Christians Christ
inasday ; but the wiser ones, knowing the
yearnings "of the heart for set days of re
creation and enjoyment, conceived the
plan of consecrating an illegitimate shad
ow of Christmas; and hence was ordained
an annual carnival for gluttons, naming
it thanksgiving day, sacred to sectarians,
who, fur that one day gormamUwd on
fat turkeys and plump pullets, sweetci-
der and pumpkiu pics.

New Yorlt board of aldermen have passed,
over the mavor's veto, a bill granting per
mission to tlie United States Heating and
Power Company to lay mains in the streets
of that eitv. The company is empowered
to lay pipes and mains through the streets
nnd avenues at a charge of three cents per
foot of pipe and two per cent, of the net
profits when these exceed ten percent: This
will not interfere with the Spinola Company,
which has already, commenced work, and
will prosecute it with vigor as soon, as the
weather will permit, so tjiat if there is vir
tue in steam heating, New York will per
haps realize it at an early day.
A Stat Convention of the Democratic

like barns, were erected in the place there
of, ; iu which the faithful grunted and
"roaned to their heart's content, aud
wherein was preached political hatred
instead of religions love. Church organs
were forbidden, and the bass viol and vi
olin were anathematized; while nasal
twanged psalmody was the only music,
sacred or secular, tolerated by the sancti
fied saints of the Puritanic Utopia.
It being as natural for Puritans to hate
as it is for curs to snarl, and having no
enemies at hand they turned, like a cer
tain class of loathsome reptiles, and bit
themselves. -. lho liapnsis, one 01. me

1 : Never j , never, -tjnV the history of ihT j
world, did. bigotry, intolerance and re-M
secation reign so supreme as in Massa-;- T
ehusetts. The modern literateurs and
scribblers of that State ashamed of the
barbarities and lunacies of their ancestors
attempted, by iteration and reiteration, !'
to make their readers -believe that tlieir-1
fathers fled to that land of bigots to e--
cape persecution at home. That is not;
true, only in a very limited sense. Many
of the first settlers of Massachusetts fled
thither to escape the vegeance "of those?'''
they had persecuted, whenby a fortnit-'
ous concatenation of cirenrastances, theyi ;
had succeeded in overturning thVgovern ? L
ment of England. . True, some 'of the em ? -f f
.grants from their old homes ,roay ; not ' V j
have been the same who had persecuted' '1
the gentlemen of England ; and, therefore,
80 fiir as they were concerned, their expa H
ti iation may have looked like persecution; ' j
But as to the ism itself, the exilement of !
the Puritans was but an act of retributive :
justice. -- - - :
Meanwhile, con-Puritanic colonists and"
adventurers from various places had set-
tied on the blessed soiJ-stolen nnd robbed"7
by piractical pilgrims from the simple In
diaus and, by the force of example, had i! !
somewhatUamed down the savage feroci "
ty of the bigoted majority The Middle '
and Southern colonies were settled by'
far different and much lietter classes of'
colonists than those who first landed at '
Wheu the revolution broke ont, the se
ditious colony of Massachusiitts was far 1 "
more obnoxious to the rule or ruin party
of tho mother country than were the '
Southern colonies.- Nevertheless the gen
erous hearted Southrons gallautlstep-i
ped to aid their not over loved cousins of.'
Psalm-sing and Quaker-burning proclivi- - '
ties. Southern blood and mind shine
conspicuous ou every page of the history -of
that unequal struggle. But for them,
Massachusetts would have been a depen- -deucy
of England,-to thisday. Iti ira- i
standiug boast of the partisans of Massa-
chusetts, that that colony furnishetl more .
soldiers for Washington's armies than did
any other colony. This is not true, as t
men for the war, though it iA true that ;
there were more enlistments from that : -colony
than from any : other. . Three
months enlistments prevailed iu that col- v
ony during the stages of tho war; and
Washington, in his public letters,' corn-'
plained bitterly of their uselessness.- IBy ;
those letters it appears that recruits were r
sent to camp for instruction; and by the '
time they were assigned to regiments,
their term of service expired, and away r
they weut. Met half way home by high
bonuties, they re-enlisted, and before they "
were fit to take the field, were again dis- -charged;
so that the same tneu mid boys t
enlisted over, and over, again, thus add- ;
iug to the roll without increasing the
army. The men who enlisted for during i.
the war were principally. from New Jer- A
sey, Pennsylvania, Deleware, Maryland
aud Virginia. The regiments of the line,
from those colonies were relied upon by,
Washington in mQst.,othc.battlcs and
skirmishes of the revolution. The, ine ;
of those colonies achieved our iudepen-
deuce, aided, as they were, by. many from
all the other colonies. .. . , ,
When a more perfect union was formed,
Massachusetts lost some ofJicr liirlueoco -for
evil ; but after the death of Washing
ton, when two great parties sprang, up.
One favoring a strong government with ,
despotic teudencies, the other in favor of J
the largest liberty to the people, and the
sovereignty of the States. Massachusetts, j
Puritans sided with the Federalist,, the
strong government men. JJut Democracy f
and the people triumphed, and for sixty ;
years, ith but a brief interruption or
two, under the guidance of that party's
great men the ship of state anchored in j.
ptttK'iity aud peace.fDuring the can Vain
of Jefferson for President when hydra- j
headed Federalism was dethroned, the
malignant spirit of Puritanism flamed '
out a new, and Mr. Jefferson wns the most
thoroughly cursed individual . of .;. his ..
The purchase of Ijonsiana, by Jefferson '
aroused the bitierness of Puritanism i
