Ilcwlved, That we are in favor of the en
tire abolition of the internal revenue sys
tem, iith its attendant corruptions, and
thaMre denounce the present tariff laws as
grossly unequal, unjust and vicious. We
favorjsuch a revision of the itarifF as will
produce a revenue Sufficient fpr the econom

it should1 prove impracticable to abolish
the intemarrevenuie system with all its at-
tending demoralization, fraud and corrup
tion, "then we urgejupon our Senators and
Representatives in Congress the importance
of so.amehding the Law thatl the revenue
officers whonow receive in salaries in North
Carolina alone more than $500,000 shall be
elected by the people of the1 localities to
which they are assigned.' j ; , i
liepolted, That the course pf the Demo

education is a sufficient guaranty that we
earnestly favor the education! of all classes

fietolced, That the question of prohibi

ty question in North Carolina, .and never
beeu 'endorsed by 4he Democratic party,:
and the people of the State at the general
election, in the yaf 1881, having by an
overwhelming majority voted against pror
hibition, aniPthe Supreme Court having
decided that the prohibition act is not and
neve has been a law, we regard the matter
as finally settled, and any attempt to re

of designing persohs to divert the minds of.
the people from the dangerous principles
and corrupt practices-of tbe Republican
party. j j -
liotohed. That while we aiie not wedded
to any particular form of county govern

.'Simon's like all other young men, Miss
Dodge, said she,'took by a pretty face
and a pair o bright eyes. And they set
on the same bench at: school. Aud as

But there wasn't! nothing not even a

and made him hear reason. There can't

. So that Joanna Fox sitting listlessly in
her black dress by tile window, where
the scent of June honeysuckles floated
sweetly in, and trying to realize that she
was alone in the -world, had diver and
sundry visitors that day. The first was
Simon Lockedge, looking as if his errand
were somehow connected with graud lar
ceny. . - . .
Jiuinna started up, her wan face bright
ening, felie was only frixtecn a browu

red mouth and a roiind, ivhite throat,
banded with blatk velvet.
Oh,' Simon,' she cried, 'I knew you

'A fellow can't go against his own moth

awkwardly, mindful of his mother's drill,
'when poverty comes in at the door, love

Joauna smiled ecorufully.
I seems, said she, 'that love does
always wait for that. .
And she turned nod walked like a

Old Miss Gringe, who had fifty thou

ways declared she loved dear Joanna Fox

was sorry for Miss Joanna, of course ; but
he didu't know of any way iu which she
could bo useful. He I understood there
was a kid-glove factory to be opened on
Walling River soon. :;
'No doubt Miss Fox could get a place
there ; or there would be no objection to
her going out to domestic service. There
was a great deal of false sent indent on
this subject and he thought
But Joanna without waiting for the re
sult of his cogitations excused herself. She
would detain him no longer, she said : and
she went- away with flaming checks, and
resolutely repressed tears. ;
.When sho got houle. she fiuind one of the
trustees of the church I awaiting her. He
djdu't ..wish to hurry her, he, said, but the
new clergyman didn't want to live in such,
a ruinous old place : and it was their calcu-,
lation, as the parsonage, was mortgaged
much beyond its real value, to self it out,
and buy a new frame. house near the depot,
with all the modern coaveruences, for the
use of the Rev. Silas Speakwell.
Am I to be turned out of my home?'
said Joanna indignantly.
Deacon Blydenburg hemmed and. hawed.
He didn't want jo hurt no one's feelings;
but as to her home, it was well known that
to all intents and purposes the old place
had long ago passed out of Parson Fox's
ownership; and they were willing to
accord her any reasonable length of time to
pack up and take leave of her friends say
a week. -
So Joanna, w,ho could' think of no re
maining friend but her old governess, who
had long ago gone to New York to fight
the great world for herself, went down to
the city, and appealed to Miss Woodin in
her extremity ; aud Miss Woodin cried over
her and kissed her and caressed her, like
an old maiden aunt. j
'What am I to do?' said poor, pale Joan
na, 'I can't starve 1'
'There's no necessity for any one starving
in this great busy world,'said Miss Woodin
cheerfully. 'All one wants is faculty.'
Joanna shrank a little from the hard,
stereotyped word which 6hc had so often
heard from the lips Mrs. Emmons, Miss
gabina Sexton, and that sisterhood.
'But how do you live'?' said she.
'Do you see that thing there in the cor
ner ?. said Miss WoodinT
'Yes,' answered Joanna. 'Is it a sewing
'It's a1 type writer,' announced Miss
Woodin, 'and I earn my living on it.'
'But what do you write ?' said Joanna.
'Anything I can get,' said Miss Woodin.
And thus, in the heart of the great wil
derness of New York, Joanna Fox commen
ced her prilgriraage of toil.
First the type writer, then promoted to
a compiler's desk in the 'Fashion Depart
ment,' of a prominent weekly journal ; then,
by means of a striking original sketch,
slipped into the letter box of the Ladies'
Weekly with fear and trembling, to a place J
no the contributors' list; then gradually ris
ing to the rank of a spirited young novelist,
until our village damsel had her pretty
'flat' furnished like amincrature palace,
with Miss Woodin "arid her type writer
snugly installed in one Comer.
' 'Because owe! everything to her,' said
the young authoresr, gratefully.
And one day, glancing over the exchanges
in the sanctum of thej Ladies' Weekly, to
whose columns she still contributed, she
came i across a copy of t ie Foxville Ga
zette. -. I ; j - ' ' V- .
, 'Hester, she said, hurrying home, to Miss
Woodin, -'the parsonage is to be sold at
auction to-morrow, and I mean to go up
and buy it; for I am sure quite sure that
I could write better there than anywhere
fclse in the world.' ' , j . .-v.
I ' Miss Wood in agreed with Joanna. Miss,
pToodin believed most firmly in' whatever!

young writer was always right. ? A - ',

The old parsonage was rebuilt, and stud

porches. Laurels and rhododendrons were
set out in the grounds, the little brook was
bridged over with rustic cedar wood, and
Joanna Fox and Miss Woodin came there
to live in modest comfort,

intention to enter at length iuto the de
tail of manufacture Under thi invaluable
process ; suffice it to say that samples of
steel made by this process have been
showu to and examined by a number of
eminent metallurgistti, who while at first
denying thai the result eould ber accom
plished by the means adopted, now ac
knowledge their error and admit the suc
cess of the invention j-by this process the
finest kinds of cutlery steel have been
made direct from the ore in one hour.
Thus we claim that the most important
discovery of the age is that owned by the
North State Mining Company, a discov
ery, which, as we before stated, must
revolutionize the iron and steel -trade,
aud enable America not only to compete
with Euglaud, but actually to ship steel
into Knglaud and Europe at a handsome
protit. There can be uo doubt that the
htock of the North Stnte'Miiiiug Company
will become one of the invaluable invest
ments of the day, fullj repaying those
who have had confidence iu their state
ments and promise. We admit we were
among the most skeptical, openly laugh
ing at their apparently incredible state-,
incuts: but we have seen the manufac
ture, seeu the product, seen steel made
from crude ore in less than two hours,
seeu the bloom returned to the furnace
and inless than three hours beoomo mar
ketable steel. We admit our incredibili
ty and our convesion into warm believers
in what we have seen actually accom
plished, steel made from ore iu less than
two hours by one heat.
The colored vote of the State will not be
taken iuto serious consideration by the
Republican politicians, who are convinced
that the 'colored brother' always votes the
'straight ticket,' but there is some proba
bility that a large number of colored voters
will mark out and pursue a course of ac?
tion for themselves, and that too, mainly
because they are not 'taken into-considera-tion'
by the professionals. They will re
ceive just as much by voting to suit them
selves as they will by voting far thejicket
mapped out by A. B. Cornell and'Mc To.'
Their leaders arc not consulted in anything,
even the smallest piece of consideration,
they are told, 'No, you people want too
muclu' If this be the caso if they get not h
ing as a voluntary offering, and less, when
they prefer a claim what have they to
gain and what to lose by the triumph or
defeat of the Republican machine. Nea
