THE NEXT PRESIDENT.
We publish below an exiractrfrom the
Saratoga Sun, in which that paper at
tempts to show that next to Mr. Til
den, Roswell P. FlOWEB, of New
York, can more certainly carry the
Epire State for President than any
other roan. Mr. Flower has little
national reputation, buf that of itself
jg no erfcus-objection to him. The
gun says :
"The man for the Democrats to
nominate is therefore and without
question, one who cau certainly carry
NewTfork. And while we believe
any candidate the convention would
probably nominate, would stand a fa
vorable chance to get the electoral
votes of this State, we do not think it
the part of wisdom to rely upon pos-
iblities nor even probabilities, when
Struggle for the Xlfe of the
TJie campaign of1884 will soon be
upon us, in fact the marshaling of the
forces and the arguments have already

timely and ao sensible that we trust
all our readers will give it a careful
and thoughtful perusal. The World
The real issue involved in the Pres
idential election is the continued ex
istence of a republican government
in fact as well as in form. If a politi
cal party, having been in power near
ly a quarter of a century, can success
fully set up a prescriptive right to
hold possession of the government to
exclusion of all others, despite the wiil
of the people, we cannot claim to live

Wno, men, can cenaniiy secure tne
electoral strength of the Empire State?
The man whose name will most read
ily coine to mind in answer to this
question, is Samuel J. .Tilden, the pa
triot statesman, the wise, executive,
the consummate leader, who has suf
fered in uncomplaining silence, the
greatest wrong ever inflicted upon
toy American by his countrymen. If
Mr. Tilden were younger or had the
physical vigor to undertake the her
culean labors of the campaign, no
other's name would be mentioned in
connection with this nomination.
Even as it is, if he would only say
the word, the party would rally to
his support as foue man. We have
been, as our readers know, reluctant
to ad nut that tlws could not be. We
have hoped, even against hope, that
the reports of his determination not
to allow his party again to nominate
and elect him and, this time to scat
him, were not well founded. But the
great leader has not denied these pos
itive statements, put forth by those
who have been recognized as the pos
sessors of Iris confidence, and vvc aro
forced to conclude that he will not
again consent to lead the Democratic
hosts to victory.
"As we cannot, therefore, have Mr.
Tilden, have we any other leader
whose name will give us the assurance
of triumph? Is there another Demo
crat of this State who can unite the
party in his support and whose abili
ty and integrity will commend him
to the confidence and arouse the en
thusiasm of the party everywhere?
There is such a man and his name is
Roswell Pi Flower. -
"Mr. .Flower has lived in the midst
of factions, but he has never been
-identified with anv of Hiem. At the
. t - -1 -
same time he would be zealously sup
ported by thm all. This illustrious
Democrat is a man of exalted charac
ter and consummate ability; an or
ganizer who is the peer of Mr. Tilden
himself; whose record is irreproacha
ble and whose personal magnetism
marks him as a born leader of nieh'
HARBINGER OF SUCCESS.
Tle Troy P, ess, one of the ablest
and best Democratic papers of ftew
York, after an able and sensible re
sume of the various candidates for the
Presidency in the several States, con
cludes its article with an extract from
the Hartford (Conn.) Telegrame as
"Ve cordially agree with every
sentiment herein expressed. While
we should be gratified to see our no
ble standard bearer of ,1880, Gen.
Hancock, again renominated, and we

would cast its vote for him beyond a

When the Federal bayonets were at

party were ready to do honor to ex-

James G. Blaine took his share of the

there till his death, which was in the
sixty-fifth year of his age, a. d., 1764,
and was buried in the said Roan County,
in the fork of the Yadkin River, about
ten miles above the fork, on a place call

age was taken by his father into North

this being the case, he has no right to risk that crop on anything that has not been
tried and proved. The following will show what has been "tried and proved," iu the
fertilizer way, on fine tobacco, and Major Ragland, of Halifax county, Va., the great
tobacco authority, and grower of pedigree tobacco seed, is the man who tells about it.
If anybody k nows what tobacco is he certainly does :
"There arc several brands of fertilizer manufactured specially for tobacco, differing
in composition, price, and merit; and after repeated experiments with most, if not all
the boot, the author gives it as his decided opinion, that for fine, bright, silky tobacet

Tobacco Fertilizer, prepared by the Southern Fertilizing Company, Richmond, Na.
And this opinion is based upon seventeen years' trial, and often in competition with the
best of other brands on the market. It is a tried and proved fertilizer, which the plant
er can use without the risk of getting something unsuited to his crop; and therefore I
can recommed it with confidence."
Messrs. Mathews & Williamson, of Beidsville, X. C, wrote the following to the
Company, and state that they have seen nothing since to change their judgment.
"From our own personal experience, and it covers a long time, in watching the re
sults from the use of various brands of commercial fertilizers handled in this section, it
is our mature judgment that the 'ANCHOR BEANS' stands at the head of ail
for the production of fine, silky, yellow tobacco. The plant seems to receive more fitting
nourishment from the use of this article than from any other, and we are of opinion
that if our farmers made it their stand-by, we would hear less of light chaffy tobacco,
having some color but no body, and that the farmer would realize the result he ought
to enjoy from his labor ; for low-grade tobacco will not bring big mopey."
Now we want you to have "big money" for your crop; because we not only desire
you to make good bills with us, but pay for them when they arc made ; hence wc han
dle the 'Anchor Brand and will supply you, in quantities to suit, direct from the
factory. We don't want people to abuse us about their fertilizer; we, therefore, sell
only what time has shown to be the best. So, make no arrangements in this line, until
you see or confer with us. You certainly can't afford to take any risk this year.
