Representatives 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
which they arc assigned. 1
Eesohed, That the course of the Demo-j
cratic party since its accession to power in j
North, Carolina in furtherance 6f 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 looking.to an increasebf the fund
for that purpose that will not j materially
in?rcase the present burdens of jour people.
llesolced, Tint the question of . prohibi
tion isnot now, and never has been, a par
ty question in North Carolina, land 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 a'gitatiou is merely a weak effort
of designing persons to divert the minds of
the people trom the dangerous; principles
and corrupt practices of the Republican
Hesohed, That while we arc riot 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 these-people from the
oppressive domination of ignorant blacks,
and pledge ourselves to such legislature as
will secure this end. -
And whereas it is seriously: suggested
that vigorous effort w ill soon be made to
compel the State by judicial proceedings,
to pay the fraudulent and unlawful special
tax bonds, amounting to $22,000,000, issued
under legislation passed by the Republican
Legislature 1868 and 1869; therefore
Iiesohed, further. That the Democratic
party will resist .such recovery and the
payment of 6uch bonds by every lawful
means, j j

oi'it is that while all: this demonstration
was being made the Republicans got de
moralized and disgusted with the whole
thing. What we fear most is that thou
sands and thousands of Republicans will
stay home and thus deprive Col. Dockery
Mr. Guthrie aud some other del-serving
ineu of votes which they will need. - We
have done everything in our power to
show Republicans the advantage of the
llefeatof bourlKiiiism even if we have to
snpport a few objectionable Democrats,
but we find it will not do. Prominent
members of the party are thoroughly dis
gusted with the movement which means
party destruction. For six months the
North State has said the liberal movement
meant no good for Republicanism. We
say so now. There is no principle iu it ;
no honesty. One class of Republicans
are trying to fool their friends by saying
help us along iu this; tl.ese fellows are
all with ns anything to beat the Bour
bons. 1 hen then the Liberal Democrats
says to their friends, don't believe that
we want to help the Republicans; those
of them who are with us are just as aux
ious to break up that party as we are.
Here is the truth about the whole matter
and Republicans of North Carolina don't
Win. M. Cocke, Jr., of Asheville i the
the chairman ot the anti-Prohibition State
Executive Committee, whose ticket the
revenue ring forced the Republican State
Convention to endorse. He-is a candi
date for Congress against Gcu. Vance in
the 8th district. He say that "owiug to
my private business and the additional
duties imposed upon me as chairman of
the executive committee of the Liberal
party of the State, it will be impossible
for me to canvass the district." And
therefore, he has published au address to
the voters of his district. Here is what
he says about "the late Republican par
ty:" "Attempts are being made, .fellow citi
zens, to persuade you that my success
and that of those with whom 1 am acting
is iu some way to inure to the benefit of
the late Republican party of the State.
There is not the least grounds for such
an assertion. Wheu the Liberal-Demo
crats proposed to abandon their old party
organization tor the sake of public good,
the Republicans, acting through their
conventions, met them wholly on their
ground. Jt is distinctly understood that
we and they have united to form a new
party or political organization. Iu addi
tion to the principles announced by the
Independent-Liberal convention, we pro
pose to so act under; the constitution and
laws as may seem best calculated to ad
vunce the interest of the people of our
Suite and country ; at large. Any one
who determines to be no longer controll
ed by the machinery of the old parties, is
fairly eutitled to be recognized as a mem
ber of our organization."
Just think; This is the leader of the
"Coalition" which all Republicans are
asked, aud ordered to support. "The late
Republican party !"- The man who says
this is the leader of the movement which
is held ta terrorem over the Republican
office-holders iu the State. This is tho
way the ally of the revenue ring talks to
his friends about the party for which we
have fought for seventeen years. This is
the feast to which we are invited by the
Republicans who claim to be building up
the Republican party iu this State. Au
invitation to the wake of the late Repub
lican party" would seem more like it.
" Jt is distinctly understood that '?' (Cocke,
B. Y. Rayle & Co.,) and Hhey,' (the teve-
huue ring) have united to form a new party

From a statement published, by t he
Castle Gardeu authorities showing the
destinations of immigrants who have ar
rived during the past six mouths, it ap
pears that Texas enjoys a genuiue immi
gration boom. South Carolina is also
receiving a larger share of the foreign
tide than usual. The large number
nearly 3,000 credited to California ,is
something new as the Golden State has
never recovered its hold upon foreign im
migration since the collapse, of mining
speculation. An immigration organiza
tion has recently started into existence
aud is working vigorously to induce
j young tanners to settle in uaiuoruia.
The president of that Society wrote to
Secretary Jackson a few days ago sayiug
that mining instead of being a help was
a real detriment to California, and that if
people who emigrated there could only
be made to understand that agriculture
iu the cud paid better than milling it
could be made a great State. Colorado
might learn something from the experi
ence of California. . If the Centennial
State would acquire a steady and perma
nent population, it behooves her to give
earlv aud muticular attention to adver-
Using her agricultural advantages.
No wonder the Egyptians are a failure
in war. In all the manners and customs
of the race it is impossible to find the re
motest suggestion of a warlike propensi
ty or impulse, or of a single soldierly
quality. The Egyptian salutation is
"Peace be with you." Peace and repose
make up their idea of perfect happiness.
All are inert aud indolent. Meu, women
and children are. in the words of Mark
Twain, "constitutionally tired." They
recline on divans the greater part of the
day, solemn and dreamy as owls. The
Egyptian even caresses his children,
it is said, "with an air of indolence and
weariness." Disputes or troubles rarely,
arise, as it requires some physical and
meutal exertion to quarrel. The Egyp
tians have no a1 most incuts resembling
those of theEuropcau races or Americans.
They refuse to get excited or enthusias
tic over anything, and take delight sim
ply and solely in the langour of undis
turbed existence. To conquer an army
belonging largely to such a race aiui
commanded by a sleepy Arab (Arabi Bey
was in bed when tlie fight at Tel-el-Kebir
liegati) was au easy tusk for -the British
regulars. ' ' ' '
The solid Republicans alKint the State
are becoming thoroughly disgusted with
the plans aud maneuvering of some of

Bloody ltiot at Lancaster.
Charleston, Sept. 28. A special
to the News and Courier from Lan
caster,says i Apffliticul metting was
held here yesterday and was address
ed by Colonel Cash. About the close
of the meeting a difficulty arose at
the stand between a white democrat
and a colored man which resulted in
the former being wounded in the
head by a blow with a stick or stone.
At this time two or three pistol shots
were fired near the stand but no one
was hurt. Soon after this a large
procession of colored men nn horse
back camt- upon the streets, one of
the number having a large pistol
buckled around his body. The ne
gro pointed the pistol at a white
man and said, "There's the damned
rascal that did the shooting." The
white mau gave him the lie, and the
colored man fired. Immediately sev
eral shots were fired by the white
man aud the colored man fell dead.
A number of shots were then fired by
white and colored meu and three oth

wounded. The authorities soon suc

Lancaster, S. C, Sept. 28.The
riot here yesterday was begun by a
fight between a negro and a white
man, during a speech by Mr. D. J.

in reply to E. B. C. Cash, Greenback
candidate for Congress in this district.
The row becoming general, sortie in

and he escaped with much difficulty,
through his own and the exertions of
Messrs. W. C. Moore, Uonovan ana

uobody was seriously hurt, but during

The Tariff Commission in Wilmington.
Wilmington, N. C., Sept. 27.
The tariff commission arrived here
this morning and held a session iu
the Custom House. The subjects
brought to its attention were rice,
peanuts, chalk snd silk cocoons. The
rice interest was advocated by D. L.
Russell, Donald MacRae and h. L.
Fremont ; peanut and chalk interests
by Geo. Z. French, arid the. .silk co
coons Interest was incidently men
tioned by Mr. Fremont. The ad vo
cates of the rice interest expressed
themselves as satisfied with the pres
ent duties, but declared that any re
duction of them would be fatal to
that interest. In regard to peanuts,
French gave! the average annual pro
duction of-the Wilmington section as
120,000 bushels. Up 1861 it was
equal to seven-eighths of the entire
crop of the United States, but under
the duty imposed in 1864, the indus
try had increased until now Tennes
see produces from 30,000 to 60,000
bushels, a ud Virginia from 700,000
to a million bushels. The price was
affected by the importation of African
peanuts. 1 he discontinuance of duty
would put an eud to the peanut in
dustries of North Carolina and would
impoverish many small farmers. As
to chalk, large deposits of it were
found iu the State, but its freight to
New York and Philadelphia, where
chalk was made into whiting, would
be higher than the cost of chalk,
which is carried there as ballast. As
to silk cocoons, the soil aud climate
of the State were favorable to the cul
tivation of Mulberry trees and tlie
raising of silk worms.. Both the-e
interests might be developed by the j
imposition of a dutv on silk and ou
Mr. Botcler asked Mr. Fremont
whether any complaints came up trom
the farming community about the
tariff. Mr. Fremont replied in the
negative. All that was heard about
it waa from Oonrrrpss nnd "stumni
speeches. He thought, however, that'

In Georgia .Gold Mines That Can
Hereafter be Saved by a New Pro
cess. Atlanta Constitution.
Up to the commencement of the
war there had been passed' through
the branch mint at Dahlonega over
twenty million dollars of gold dust,
and a low estimate will place the
amount extracted, by the ordinary
methods, in the Stale of Georgia, at
forty million dollars. It has been
known all the while that by the crude,
simple ways of amalgamation practic
ed at the gold mills, much of the gold
escaped with the tailings and was
lost forever in the beds of thestreatnf.
Some publication has been made of
a new process of saving gold, invent
ed by Dr. S. F. Charles, of Forsyth
county, Ga. Dr. Charles is a Bava
rian, a graduate of the royal engineer
ing and milling schools of Frieburg
in Saxony, and gained a valuable
practical experience among the mines
of the Hartze mountains. A modest,
unassuming man, Dr. Charles is, per
haps, the best posted gold mining alid
gold milling expert in the country.
He is the owner of an immense lead
of refractory ore on the Etowah river
in Forsyth county, which it is impos
sible to work profitably by the pres
ent system of amalgamation with
quicksilver on copper plates. To save
the gold in this ore, Dr. Charles in
vented a process which he attaches to
the ordinary stamp mill, beginning
where it leaves off, that is, he takes
the ore pulp that has-been crushed by
the stamps and passed over the cop
per plates, direct into his apparatus
instead of passing away as failings,
and further manipulates it, getting
five times as much gold on his silver
ed clothes, precipitated there by elec
tricity generated by a small dynamo
electro machine, as is saved by the
copper plates of the stamp mills, over
which it has passed.
Last week Dr. Charles, having at
tached a somewhat incomplete appa
ratus to the first class 10 stamp mill,
at the Franklin and McDonald gold
mine under the management of Col.
A. H. Moore, in Cherokee county, in
a two day's run, practicaly demonstra
ted the entire success of his invention.
Alter the mercury tables ol the Mamp
mill had done their best ami the pulp
had left them, ordi.iarily to flow iu
the Etowah river,; it rWas run directly"
mtoDr. Charles' silvered cloth, elec
tnc amalgamator which retained and
saved five times more gold'thati the
mercury tables of the stamp mill re- t
lamed and saved, j ..J-' r t i1.
Thiv invention which Dr. Charles
proposes to gwe ta the mii.ing world,
is of incalculable value to the owner' '
of tlie universally refractory gold ores
of Georgia, Virginia, the Carolinas
and jA labamo, as vel( as tp the whole
country. Jnstrthlok of itll In order

The Platonic system included the

reasoning. The pystem being the

A Cure for Biiigih's Disease;
James'R. Bartlett, of New Milford, a
few weeks ago was almost dying with
Blight's disease ; in Jhct, he wa pro
nounced incurable and was reduced
to 'almost a skeleton. Some of his
fiiends recommended to him the fol
lowing remedy :
Take sweet cider and place in it a
lot of old nails, iron hoops, or spikes,
and let It stand until the cider has ab
sorbed an abundance of the iron rust,
then drink four' or five glasses daily.
Mr. Bartlett followed out the pe-
cultar prescription to the letter, anil
tne result lias ieeii marvelous. i;oior
has returned to his cheek, flesh to his
limbs, and to all appearances lie is
rapidly gaining health and is in a fair
way for recovery. Chicago lb raid.
