Mt. Yerxox, N. C.
Dear Watchman :
Radicalism has been signing its own
death warrant. The whijome great par
ty of human rights, with! a majority co
operation ef the. Democrats, which is en
thely consistent), has gone and voted to
exclude the Chinese. Every word of Sen
ator Jones' speech, and every vote of Re
publican members for that measure blots
out and gives the lie to the past profes
sions and assumptions of the party of the
negro. It is plain aV"a-b, ab," or 'twice
twoare four," that if the Chinaniau has
no business here, neither lias the negro.
And, moreover, we are assured of 4his
fact by the 'silver-tongued orator of Ne
vada." Gain&ay it who will, we have his
word for it, that the past
party toward the negro
policy of his
niore nor less that a gigantic blunder.
His speech is a downright humiliating I
ana unconditional surrender of the
party Idol, the negro, into) the hands of
opponent. What negro will I be so in
sane as to vote for them now t j

being brought to bear to j Mahonize the
Democracy, they have been committing

ween ignorance and "intelligence upon
the very spot where the totteiingand pn-
snbstanftal fabric of negro, saffrage was
bolstered np seventeen years ago.
It was always thus with fanaticism! It
lias always-outdone itself, and, like, a
swimming pig, cut its own throat.
Wo need nt look for the nominal Iind I
ogtensible disbanding of the Radical or- J
ganizatiun by; any means ; but it is raor-1
ally disintegrated, and its future will! be !
but a name devoid of tangible and dis- )
tinctive principles. YYe can never feel

When Gen. Arthur was told that hit
veto of the Chinese bill would be inju
rious to the Republican party iu the
States, he gave a reply which out to be
preserved in letters of gold for the in
structiou of all future statesmen.
He said he had not considered the
subject as a partisan, and had not thought
whether one party or the other would be
advanced through the Executive approval
or disapproval of the bill. Bat he saw
that American principles were involved
which had been in vogue for a century ;
and if either party should gain auy per
manent advantage, it would be the party
that stood on true American ground.
This is a wise answer. It shows a
high and noble appreciation of the phil
osophy of political controversies. There
can be no mistake in 6teadily maintain
ing.; American principles,- which have
been in vogue! for a hundred years,
against the passions or tlie interests of
any innenlighted and prejadiced locality.

The question of the reunion bf
Methodism IVorth and South is not
up. It will not be before us official

ble iiivitations, the published opinions
and wishes of a few gushing brethreji,
here and there, amount ? to nothing.
We must respect ouroelTCs and bide
our time. In the meanwhile I think
I speak advisedly when I say tlie
common sentiment of our people s
that organic union is neither practici-
ble nor desireable. Let have peace
by letting disturbing questrons alone.
. The chief business of the occasion
will be the election of bishops to fijl
! the vacancies made by death, aud to
provide for the enlargement aud more
effective working of ouri, missionary
and Sunday school plans. It seems
to me that all needed work cab
promptly be disposed of. The ses
sion may be, and ought to be a short
one. Private pressing business will
demand the presence of the lay mem
bers at home, presiding elders will be
needed on their districts, college pres
idents and professors ought to be wit i
their classes, stationed preachers ougnt
to be at their posts of duty and labor.

That's Just Mc
Yearg ago, into a wholesale grocery
store in this city, walkedla tall, raus
cular man, evidently a fresh-comer
from some backwoods town in Maine
or New Hampshire. Accosting the
first person he met, who happened to
be the merchant himself, he asked : .
'You don't want to hire a man iu
your store, do you? i r
'Well said the. merchant, 'I. don't
know. What can you do?'

would be one that could lift well, a

that could lift a sack of coffee like that
yonder and carry it across -the store
and never lay it down? -
'There, now, cap'n said the coun
tryman, 'that's just me. I can lift
anything I can hitch to. You can't
suit me better. .What will you give
a man that suits you ?'v .
'I'll tell you,' said the merchant,
'if yon shoulder that sack of coffee and
carry it across the store twice and
never lay it down, I will hire you for
one year at one hundred dollars a
'Done,' said the stranger.
By this time every clerk in the
store had gathered around and was
waiting to join in the laugh against
the man, who threw the sack acrois
( his shoulder with perfect ease, and
carrying it twice across the floor, went
to a large hook which was fastened to
the wall and hung it up, then turned
to the merchant and said,
'There, now, it may hang there till
doomsday. I shall never take it
down. What shall I go atybut, mis
ter ? Just give me plenty jto do and
one hundred dollars a month, and it's
all right.' j

we notice in a New York nlner ii
that a grave charge is brought against
many colored pastors. They are!ac-

their flocks. I We find in the Ti,
statement made by J. N. Stearns, who
is Corresponding Secretary oti the
National Tempe'rance , Society anji
who has spent much of the last seven
years in the! south, that is serious if
true. WV copy the report of1 the
