that we denounce tbe"present tariff laws as
grossly unequal, unjust and vicious. We
favor such a revision of the tariff as will
produce a revenue sufficient for the econom
ical; support of the. government with such
incidental protection as wjll give to domes
tic Manufactures a fair competition with
those of foreign production. That there
should be an immediate repeal of . all laws
imposing a, direct tax for j the support of
the government of the United States, but if
it should prove impracticable, to abolish
the internal revenue system with all its at
tending demoralization, fraud and corrup
tion, then we urge upon our Senators and
lispresentatives in Congress the importance
of so amending the Law that the revenue
officers whonow receive in: salaries in North
Carolina alone more than $500,000 shall be
elected by the people of - the localities to

Resohed, That the course of the Demo

North Carolina in furtherance of popular
education is a sufficient guaranty that we
earnestly favor the education of all classes
of our people, and that we will advocate any
legislation Iookingjto an increase of the fund
forjtbat purpose that will not ..materially
increase the present burdens of our people.
Resolved That the question of prohibi
tion is not how, and never has been, a par
ty question in North Carolina, and never
been endorsed by the Democratic party,
and the people of the State at the general
election, in the year 1881, having by an
overwhelming majority 'voted against' pro
hibition, and' the Supreme. ; Court having
decided that the prohibition act is not and
never has been a law, we regard the matter
as finally settled, and any attempt to re
new the agitation is merely a weak effort
of designing; persons to divert the minds of
the! people from the dangerous principles
and corrupt 1 practices of the Republican
party. 1 (
Mttolved, That while we are not wedded
to any particular form of? county govern
ment, we recognize-the fact that a large
part of the taxes of the State are paid for
the common benefit by the white people of
our eastern counties, and that, we consider
it the bounden duty of the white men of
the state to protect thesej people from the
oppressive domination of ; ignorant blacks,
and pledge ourseizes to such legislature as
will secure this end. f
And whereas it is seriously suggested
that vigorous effort will (soon be made to
compel the State by judicial proceedings.

It is an . outrageous and high handed
movement, an aggression, npon the vest
ed rights aud an invasion' of occupied
property ; a seizure by force of the only
line available or practicable for our great
State work, and done evidently with the
purpose of hindrance and vexation to the
enterprize bound up strictly by limita

time. It is a high handed
which must be met in the same spirit
which it was made. !
The narrow guage road starts from
Marietta, Ga., and is ; located to a point
which leaves it 40 miles from the North
Carolina line. It overleaps that forty
miles to reach our borders, in which it
locates and grades 13 miles, and then
makes a leap of 23 miles to seize the poiut

ation aud effectually obstructs the onward
movement of the W. N. G. road unless
dispossessed. The whole movement how
ever, is au obstructive one ; for a line
moving forward by jerks and' jumps evi

Tlie glare Trade in Nubia.
! . : (London Times.) ' ' '
Swedish missionaries in Nubia ' report
that they have recently experienced ranch
opposition from the. Egyptian ageuts and
officers in the Upper Nile valley, who ex
ceedingly dislike Europeans on account
of their hatred of the slave trade.' , A ve'
ry extensive slave trade is carried m by
Egyptian and Turkish inerchanta in the
regions south and west of the Blue Nile."
Troops of the wretched nogroet are
brought uorthward in chuius. Those who
prove too weak for the journey are either
abandoned without tnercy, to perish from
hunger or wild beasts, or their drivers at
once cut their throats or stab theiu. They
are sold to the harettia of wealthy Egy'pt
iaua and Tnrka, while the men aud wo
men are disposed of as servants. : There
ia alao a steady demand fur .male negroes
of a certaiu class for attendauu and guar

great proportion of tJiese men die from
injuries sustained iu the preliminary
training for the duties of this office. The
Sweedish Missionaries have been compel
led to return to Khartoum instead of pen
etrating southward as they intended. The

other whites as spies upon and opponents
of the barbarities connected with their
extensive slave traffic with the interior.

that "the Republicans have do ticket in

The Yalnable Slice of Gold.
- A gentleman who ftas just returned from
Greer's Station says that some time since a
customer of the finni of Davenport & Bal
lensrer ef that place, called at the store and
and exhibited a large weMgjn of rock
"covered with bright splotches." -;
Mr. Davenport examined the stone, and
told the owner that be would be pleased to
take it in settlement of an account between
tbem,which involved a considerable amount.
This proposition was agreed to, and Mr.
Davenport sent the rock on U NewYork
for examination. After some days had
elapsed he rcceived4he pleasant informa
tion that the stone was one of richest spe
cimens of gold that had ever been seen
from, this State, and! soon, afterwards Mr.

It is an interesting fact iu couuectiuu

may well be distrusted. There is consid
erable doubt if either Eugland or France
will agree to this arrangement. But it
strikes us, that this is nu easy and certain
solution of the difficulty. England pro
fesses to occupy Egypt to protect, her
commercial interests. If the European
Powers take the Snez Canal in baud why
