fcl'T WHAT OF THE N F.GRO '.' 1
"Have we solved the problem he pre
acnta or proresed in bouur and equity
toward its solutionis Let the record iieak
to this point. No .'section shows a more
prosperous laboring population than the
ftegrue of the .South: ooue in fuller sym
pathy with the employing and land-own-jug
class. He shares our school fund, has
the fullest protection of our laws and the
friendship of our people. Self-interest as
well as honor de.nanil that he should
have this. Our future, our very existence,
depends upon our working out this prob
lem in fttli and exact justice. We under
stand that when Lincoln signed the
emancipation proclamation, your victory
was assured, for he thc-u committed you
to the cause of human liberty, against
which the arms of man cauuqt prevail,
"Had Mr. Toombs said, which he did
not say, that he would cull the roll of his
slaves at the foot oFBnnker Hill he would
have been foolish, for he might have
known that whenever slavery became
entangled in war it must perish, and
that the chattel in human tlesh ended
forever in New England when your
fathers not to be blamed for parting
with what didn't pay sold their slaves
to our fathers not to be praised for
knowing a paying thing when they saw
it. Laughter. The relations of the
Southern people with the negro are close
And cordial. We remember with what
fidelity for four years he guarded our de
fenseless women and children, whose
husbands and fathers were fighting
against his freedom. To his eternal
credit be it said that whenever he struck
a blow for his own liberty he fought in
open battle, and when at last he raised
his black and humble hands that the
shackles might be struck off, those hands
were innocent of wrong ngaiust his help
less charges and worthy to be taken in
in loving grasp by every man who honois
loyalty and devotion. Applause. Ruf
fians have maltreated him, rascals have
misled him, philanthropists established a
bank for him, but the South, with the
North, protests agaiust injustice to this
simple and sincere-people. To liberty
and enfranchisement is as far as the law
can carry the negro. The rest must be
left to conscience and common sense.
It should lie left to those among whom
his lot is cast, with whom, he is indissol
nbly connected, and whose prosperity
depends upon their possessing his iuteili-
Ct sympathy and confidence. Faith
been kept with him in spite of cal
umnious assertions to the coutrarv, bv
those who assume to speak for Ms or by
frank opponents. Jfeaith will be, kept
with him in the future it the South holds
bar reason and integrity. Applause.
THE SOUTH HAS KEPT FAITH WITH TOE
"But have we kept faith with you? In
the fullest sense, yes. When Lee surren
dered, the South became, and has been
since, loyal to this Union. We fought
bard enough to know that we were whip
ped, and with perfect frankness accepted
as final the arbitrament of the sword, to
which we had appealed.
"This is said iu no spirit of time serv
ing and apology. 1 should be unjust to
the .South if I did not make this plain in
this presence. The South has nothing
to take buck; nothing for which she has
excuses to make. Iu my native town of
Athens is a monument "that crowns its
central hill a plain white shaft. Deep
cut into its shining sides is a name dear
to me above the names of men that of a
brave aud simple man who died in brave
and simple faith. Not for all the glories
of New England, from Rlymoth Rock all
the way, would I exchange the heritage
be left me in his patriotic death. To the
foot of that shaft I shall send my chil
dren's children to reverence him who
ennobled their name with his heroic
blood. But, sir, speaking from the shad
ow of that memory, which I houor as I
do not hi ug else on earth, T say that the
cause in which he suffered, avid for which
be and fuller wisdom, than his or mine,
and I am glad that the omniscent God
held the balance of battle jn His Almighty
hand, and that the American Union was
saved from the wreck of war. Loud ap
plause. 44 This message, Mr. President, comes to
you from consecrated grounds . Every
foot of the soil about the city in which I
lived is sacred as a battleground of the
Republic. Every bill that invests it is
hallowed to you by the blood of your
brothers, who died for your victory, and
doubly hallowed to us by the blood of
those who died hopeless but undaunted
in defeat sacred soil to all of us, rich
with memories that make us purer and

No Clau Legislation.
Under this caption the Charlotte
Obberrer protests against the lein law
bill before the Legislation for the espe
cial benefit of physicians. We have
never had any fear that the Legisla
ture would make a law of the kind in
dicated. It weald be such an outrage
on other credit-ors that we hare no idea
that the Legislature would do it.
The goodly town of Reidsrille, was
visited by tire Sunday morning last,
which resulted in a loss of about $60,
000, on which was an insurance of
$21,000. The sufferers were Thomas,
saloon ; Harris Bro. & Stone, merchan
dise; Giles & Co., hardware; K. M. Mil
ler, grocer; John Ellington, confec
tioner'; Piedmont Hotel; Daniel Har
ris, merchandise; and Watt Bros. &
Womaek, merchandise. Several tobacco
warehouses were also burned.
Members of Congress have been fair
fuming with war talk against Cana-
i and Great Britian, on the fish ques
tion. Canada, it seems, has been inter
fering with American rights on that
subject, and a resolution was adopted
in the Senate 46 to 1, giving the
President the right under certain con
ditions, to exclude Brit's'i vessels from
American waters, and prohibiting the
sale of fish in British bottoms, if
brought to our shore.

The merchants of Statesville who
were into the modern humbug, the
Merchants' Protective Association have,
we are informed, employed a lawyer
and propose to roe the concern for the
amount o the initiation fee. Good.
This "humbug" captured a few of
our business men and we suppose got
out of them the handsome initiation
fee of thirty-six dollars. One had the
chance of getting in for $18, provided
he would pay the balance in work.
But having managed to get along pret

Emily Brown, who, in December
last, was murdered at her boarding
house in Baltimore, by two negroes ior

One of the men hits been found guilty
of murder in the first degree. Another,
"Uncle Perry," who was employed as
assistant janitor, at the University, is
now bafore the Court on the charge of
being particetts crimimk before and af

of the three.
The illicit distillers of Dawson coun

have been visited by masked men, and
in one case a man was finer wd sn se

Andrew Howard, another man, was
waylaid and shot on the public road
receiving four flesh wounds; but his
masked assailants rushed out and liter-
illy stamped his life out of him. Still
another, an aged, peaceable man. is re

Every city In the South is growing in
wealth and population. The rate of in
crease in population in some of the Pinal 1
er cities is almost phenomenal, and the
census of 18JJ0 wilt be something of a
revelation to the world. Exchange
And yet of itself this phenomenal
growth of Southern towns ami cities
is of no important significance; for it
is not these which make the strength
and grandtier of a State. If elsewhere.
as here in this section, it is more nearly
an evidence of weakness nnd decay;
for almost every man who has left the
country to come to town to live, has
dimini hed the number of good farm
ers by that proportion. The greatest
need of Kowan at this moment is more
intelligent farmers with means to car
ry on farming with successful results.
She has been reduced to a race of far
mers who live I hard from year to 'year,
and whose gains, if any. are small and
inconsiderable, and whose farming
lands are growing poorer because they
cannot institute and practice a more
The Department of Agriculture.
The department of agriculture occu
pies a large share of public attention.
That a sentiment adverse to the depart
ment pervades the state has long been
recognized, and efforts made to counter
vail it have not been successful. In
saying this we are not to be understood
as casting a stone at the members of
the board, for we desire emphatically to
assert that the state will be looked over
in vain to find more competent persons
to fill their places on the board; or more
zealous persons. We do not mean that
there are not others competent, zeal
ous and efficient, but taking the board
as it stands its personnel cannot well
be improved. The governor, the presi
dent of the University, the master of
the state grange and president of the
N. CT agricultural society are designa
ted by law as members of the board.
They cannot withdraw if they should
wish to do so. As long as the law stands
they are members of the board. It so
happens that each of these officers is
eminently qualified for the post. Gov.
Scales is a man of business. Mr. Battle
is not only a man of business, but has
an experience as a farmer second to that
of but few in the state; Mr. Williams
is a farmer of intelligence and force of
character, while Mr. ITpchurch stands
without qualification as a practical bu
siness man and farmer of whose success
North Carolina may justly be proud.
The other members of the board are
farmers drawn from the different parte
of the state because they were esteemed
as the most fit to represent agriculture on
the board. They have no other interests.
Why, then, has the department be
come u n popular ? Because, first, the far
mers, who compose the majority of our
legislators have imposed on the board
duties thai have no connection with ag
riculture, second, because the beneficial
results of the work have been genera
and not particular, and thirdly because
the general depression of agriculture has
eroved a spirit of unrest and dissatis
faction. Farm products are low and
agriculture is not prosperous, and there
fore the people are not content. And it
is a question whether the department
agriculture has-done any good.
1 he law imposes on the board the duty
ttf making an oyster survey. The board
may not relish the work, but they oley
the law. The law makes it the duty of
the board to run fish hatcheries; the
board may not relish that, but they have
measurably, obeyed the law.
The law makes it incumbent on the
board to conduct surveys of our coal
fields, iron regions, phosphate beds, &c.
The board may not relish that, but still
they have obeyed the law. The law en
grafts onTtlie department the bureau of
immigration; whatever the board may
think of that, the law has to be observ
ed. And so also as to the geological sur
vey. I he people say that these things
have nothing to do with Agriculture.
Grant that then the department is not
merely one of agriculture, but of mining,
of fish, of oysters, of geology aud of im
migration. The fact is that to the board is com
mitted the duty of developing all the
resources of the State of North Carolina.
It is not merely a department of agri
culture, but something besides. Shall
these other functions be lopped off?
The News and Observer is indifferent as
to whether they shall be separated
from the board or not; bat the results
of the geological surveys already -made,
should be published. The Governor can
very well have that attended to.
The oyster survey ought to be contin
ued and laws passed to promote oyster
culture. The Governor can very well
attend to that. The surveys for coal,
minerals, etc., are finished ; only the
8UrveysJor phosphates remain incom
plete. Let the governor attend to that.
The immigration bureau does not
amount to a great deal perhaps. Mr.
Patrick might well attend to that under
the direction of the Governor. By such
a distribution of its present work, the
board of agriculture would be freed
from duties that are not germane to the
organization to the department as one
merely of agriculture.
The legislature having done that, in
order to bring the department home to
each community iu the State, let the
board seek to promote advanced agri
culture, newmeihods, new ideas, by ob
ject lessons in different parte of the state.
Let its entire energies be devoted to get
ting our agriculture on a better basis.
Already much has been accomplished
in that direction, but strike off the
shackles of the board and let it have a
fair chance to promote the agricultural
interests of the State.
We see no need for any change in
the personnel of the board. It cannot
be improved on. Free thera from the
incaabmiices that weigh them down;
give tnem money to work with; let
them have an opportunity to do their
best for agriculture, and we hazard
nothing in saying that our people will
feel the good effects
vhas heretofore bee
I be work which
been done has been
useful it has served a good purpose;
now tiien let the department of sgri
culture be freed by the law from the
law which has made it something else
and let it be a department of agricul-

The county, government question
comes up as a special order in the
House today. It cannot be treated by
democrats in any two ways. The main
tenance oi tne present system is a car
dinal principle of the democratic party
and those who oppose it must be con
tent to stand outside of that party for
there they belong.
The systehi is simply a return to the
system of dlir.fathers and has been
proven by experience the lest for all
psirts of the estate. It must therefore
be maintained in its uniformity. Its re
peal would result in serious injury to
the east and that would mean injury
also to the west and to the centre. No
part of the state of course can suffer
without suffering T)eing entailed upon
the whole commonwealth. A kssen
ing of the ability of the e"ast or of any
other one section would render it ne
cessary for the "other sections to make
up the deficiency that would arise. The
whole state therefore, from the Atlantic
to the Alleghanies, is vitally interested
in the maintenance of the existing sys
tem, and true democrats will stand by
that system to a man. Raleigh News

The National Capital
Washington, Jan. 24. Senate At 1
o'clock the bill was taken up authorising
the President to protect ami dt tend the
rights of Ainc.icun ti.-hing and other ves
sels. Mr. Ingalls sid that the fishery difficul
ties would "ultimately have to be settled
either by negotiation or war and that it
would be well, to inlorni the Senate belore
they voted on the bill, whether it was in
tended as a liiendly or hostile imasure
against Great Britain according to the re
port which accompanied the bill. The con
duct of the dominion ami of Great Britain
was sufficient to. justify a declaration of war
on the part id' the United States. It was a
violation ot the treaty rights and showed
a purpose on the part of the offenders to
destroy American fishing interests, lie
thought that a bill which simply authorized
the President to adopt a policy
f retaliation was hardly consistent with
the gravity of the situation. He
thought it would be more in accord with
the dignity ol the subject for t h? Senate to
declare that ;t he relation between the two
countries wcrcstn h asto require negotiation,
und that th'.-iv should be authority not to
issue letters of marque and reprisal, but to
select a commission to settle the subject,
and to rwu h, if possible, an understand ir

that the gentleman deemed to forgit that
Canada was playing the same role now that
she had played belore. She played it for
one purpose, that is to secure negotations
for reciprocal treaties had turned out for
the advantage ot Canada and the disadvan
tage ot'tbe United Statt s. He would group
the outrages committed by Canada during
the last half year, and then ask Mr. Inalls
whether or not he thought the United States
ought to resort to negotiation. If the Pres
ident were, to morrow, to take advantage
of the pending bill which would authorize
him to close Amerir-an ports against Cana
dian fish products, it would en"d the trouble
between the United States and Canada.
Canada would cease her outrages. He
charged the Canadians with outra -cs and
inhumanities that would disgrace the Fee
Jee islanders. He declared that the pur
pose of the proposed legislation was to in
form the British government that a contin
uance of the present course would be at her
peril. He said he- was almost assured that
the present measure was looked upon favor
ably by the President and his cabinet.
Mr. Frye declared that the British Gov
ernment knew that outrages had been com
mitted in violation of law as well as viola
tion of good neighborhood. The Senator
quoted froni a recent statute passed by the
Dominion Uovernment in further hostility to
American fishermen, and claimed that by its
appro al the British Government had blast
ed the hope that that government would do
what was fair and just in the premises.
The Committee on Foreign Helatiou sought
simply that the President of the United
States should be empowered to close all
American ports agrtiust any fisherman or
all fishermen against any merchant vessel
or all merchant vessels.
Mr. lngalls again tonic the floor and ask
ed Mr. Edmunds whether he wanted this bill
to settle tlurtrouble bv negotiation or by a
Mr. Edmunds saul by neither, and went on
to explain tbat under treaty President of
the United Mates may, if our vessels aie
mistreated in Canadian parts, say that Can
adian fish and Canadian fisheimon shall
not come into the waters of the United
States. Suppose, said Mr. Edmunds, the
President says they shall not come, that is
not war. Suppose that continues ten years,
the question will be who can stand it best.
It would simply be a question ot noninter
course between the United States and the
British provinces, and who could stand it
longest, and there was only one answer to
Mr. lngalls was not entirely satisfied with
Mr. Edmunds' explanation, and went on be
laboring England for having always been
the ruffian and couard.
Mr. ltiddlcbcrger opposed the bill be
cause it was in the nature of a treaty with
Great Britain. He wanted no treaty. The
Inil was passed yeas 46; nays 1 (Riddle
