Senator lapham, the "senior Senator
from New York, is a stout, heavy gross
looking old man. He had no committee
and wanted to have the honor bad. So a
committee was raised on the subject of
Woman's suffrage, and the uncouth New
Yorker was made chairman. He forth
with appoiuted bis son secretary to the
committee, with a pay of $6' per day.
The committee has had ouly three: short
meetiugs, and young Lapham had no
work to do, but he has drawu $100 all
the same. Supposing that the committee
was in session an hour at each meeting
this hopeful sen of this New York Sena
tor has received $400 for each hour of his
precious time he was employed, i
About ten days since Senator Lapham
presented to the Senato a report j taking
grounds iu favor of an amendmet : to the
: i 'i
constitution giving women the right to
vote. Senators George, of Mississippi ;
Jackson, of Tennesse, and Fair, the Ne
vada millionaire, soon afterwards present
ed a minority report, in; which they take
the ground that tbe States should regu
late such matters, aud not Congress.
They conclude their report very signifi
cantly as follows, which shows up the
methods of some committees and how re
ports are considered and adopted : "We
beg leave to state that only three meet
ings of the committee liave been held.
vj . There have been no dis
cussions in the committee on this I impor
tant subject, no weighing of reasons one
the one side or the other. The reports
(majority and minority) are in no sense
to be treated as the judgement of: a de
liberative body charged with the exami
nation of this important subject."
It will be seen that the Republican
members of the committee favored the
adoption of an amendment to the j consti
tution allowing women to vote,' and. the
Democrats opposed it. What do our
people think of it f D they

The pension fraud is a matter that will

Democratic Congressmen opposed this,
but the Radicals wereable to carry their
point. New our people should j under
stand how much money this is. All the
real estate of North Carolina is valued at
$102,000,000. By that one bill the Radi
cals have given away money equal to the

mere, the reply is that they exist only
in (imagination. One man of vast! in
formation tells me that in his whole
district, which would make a State
larger than Vermont, ouly two men
engaged in farming are out of debt.
I suggested that perhaps many others
would be if they practiced thrift,
planted food crops, aud did not spec
ulate iu stocks and cotton. But he
emphatically insisted that nothing of
the kiud would answer; that the South
was taxed almost to death to enrich
the North, and that this would con
tinue for many years to come. I mildly
-interp'ised that bad as this might be,
it was intensified by the South s buy
ing from the .North a thousand things
that xmght to be produced at home,
lie admitted that there was some
force iu the sugestion, but added ; 'It
would be a drop iu the bucket. I We
are forced to do what is uu wise. (The
conqueror exacts tribute, and we pay
it under legilative enactment. Look
at that light on the Capitol dome, it
meaus that Northern Congressmen
are even now assembled passing pen
sions, many of them forged or fraud
lent, two-tiftlis of which the Sfbuth
will have to pay, and not a penny
will returu to us. We are in i the
grip of the commercial octopus, and
cannot escape. The Wit, the capital,
the jurisprudence and the legislation
of the North are combined to make
us produce wealth for their usufruct.
No couutry can prosper under such
circumstances, aud the so-called pros
perity ot the Southern people is a
sham and a lie.1"
Drunkenness No Cxcn.se for
The New York Court of Appeals
has recently passed upou the question
whether drunkeuness can be pleaded
as a defense to a charge of murder. It
was claimed by the counsel fori the
condemned murderer that his client
was the victim of an appetite for drink
which amounted to a desease that de
stroyed his will-power and rendered
him legally irresponsible, as in! the
case of insanity. ' A new trial was
therefore asked, because the court be
low refuse to charge the jury that the
accused was not responsible if the
crime had been committed when he
was the victim of such disease or if
committed while he was drunk, j The
Court of Appeals refuses to recognize
drunkenness as any excuse for crime.
It holds thai not even frenzy or men
tal alienation caused by drink caii ex
empt a person accused of murder from
criminal responsibility. If a man vol
untarily gets' druuk aiid commits a
crime while in that condition, he must
answer for the consequences of his
acts. Charlotte Observer.
Surely, there is nothing new in this
Atlanta Constitution: On Monday
the House passed; almost without de
bate, a bill to appropriate $97,640,000
as pensions. The South pays' one
third of this vast sum. Thirty odd
million are taken out of the South di
rectly to be distuibuted in other States.
Indirectly as much more is taken at
the same time, to fill the pockets of
Northern manufacturers. We have
here in a nutshell an explanation of
the wealth of one section and the want
of it iu the other.

ceeding is evidence of a rqachine;
Under that one mani government the
rank and hleot the Republican party
have had to accept 1 the ticket and
programme which Dir. Mott prepared
i'Or them weeks in advance. But
nothing of this kind has been ob
servable in the Democratic ranks. ! '
Here and there we find Democrats
who inveigh strongly against-the
jtresent system of county government
because it is not leraoc ratio in theory.
They say that the people have a right
to elect all their officers, and any
departure from that gnueral rule is
against Democratic principles. We
have good authority for the doctrine
that expediency must' sometimes con
trol general rules. If a man and wo
man, love one another why ' should
they not come together as man and
wife ? In some cases it is not expe- !
jlient that they should do so. Their
general liberty is restrained by other
considerations. Perhaps the man has
already married and bound to anoth
er woman wliom he may regard with
(the utmost aversion, yet it is not ex-
pedient for him to assert his natural
right to mate when and where he
will. There are other circumstance
controlling such matters. We only
cite this as an illustration that it is
not always expedient co carry general
principals to their farthest conclusion
and to put in universal practice what
appears to be a natural law. How is
it that the people should elect all
the officers in North Carolina? Our
revolutionary fathers when they threw
off the British yoke were thorough
Democrats and they did not thiuk
so. It was right enough, but it was
not expedient. The justices of the
peace were not so chosen; the judges
were not so chosen ; the solicitors
were not so chosen ; the clerks and
masters were not so chosen ; the clerks
of the court were not- so chosen; nor
were the Senators in Congress, nor
the President of the United States :
nor any of the federal officials. From
time to time, changes have been made
and most of the State officers are not
elected by the people. But are our
people any better Democrats than old
lorn Jefferson, Nat Macon, 1 om Ben
ton, Audrew Jackson and the other
men of the past ? Are we any less
Democrats than we were before the
war, or since the war ? If we should
deem it expedient to 'elect the mgis
tratcs by the people, would ive be any
I ... I r. -vs.
oeiter man we are to-oay i J.t we
should manage to have the law re
specting federal officers changed so as
to give the people the right to elect
them, would we be better Demo-
crats than we are? Is it expedient
that the officers of the Insane Asylum
and of the Deaf and dumb Institution
should be elected by the . people ?
I hey are the people s servants. On a
review of the whole matter, it ap
pears that we all recogniz4 that ex
pediency, in a great measure, right
fuly controls oar political action.
Now, is it expedient to turn over
a large portion of the State to negro
local . rule? That is the questiou.
Who is to suffer by it? W ho is to
gain by it? The errors which experi
euce.has proved are mingled with the
good features of the present county
system can easily be removed. One
thing is certain, the white people of
the East do not propose to submit
tamely to robbery, maladministra
tion and negro domination. News &
Stones on Public Highways. A
single loose stone, which j might be
thrown out of the tray in the space of
two seconds, is sometimes struck by
wagon wheels fifty times la day, or
more than teu thousand times a year.
Ten thousand blows of a sledge ham
mer as hard on oue wagon would
probably demolish it entirely, and
tbe stone does no less harm, because
it divides its blows among a hundred
vehicles. There is, therefore, probably
no investment that woulld pay a high
er rate of profit than a few dollars'
worth of y work in clearing public
highways of loose and fixed ;stoues.
