THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1874.
The tendency of the Democratic
rule in the South, as foreshadowed
by its orators and press, Is the total
annihilation of the colored race.
They look upon the negro as our
ancestors looked upon the red man,
and forgetting, as we charitably
conclude they do, that there Is more
than a difference between the negro
and the Indian, they turn their bat
teries of hatred against the negro,
and embrace every opportunity fair
and unfair to cripple as a citizen,
the colored man, and in many in
stances, personal violence, resulting
in the death of the negro, is the sad
It is worthy of remark, that for
some time after the emancipation of
the negro, our Southern white peo
ple exhibited a better feeling toward
them they acted with more liberal
vies in fact, there seemed to be
much of christian charity manifest
ed for the poor slave, just ushered
into the sunshine of liberty, and
it really did seem that the unpleas
ant ne was at an end, and that
Ieace and good will would hence
forth reign in the South.
As the sequel has proven, the
beautiful picture was but a surface
painting. The rod yet held over
these wicked people, rendered them
for the time, humble and obedient
they were looking for amnesty
and pardon, and they could afford
to hide their truecolors for the time.
Amnesty and pardon came ; the U.
S., full of forgivenness and mer
cy, said to these her obedient
children, 'go in peace and sin no j
more" and they went but they
went back to their "first love," and
to-day, if we are to judge from act
ual outrages daily being perpetra
ted, the feeling of hatred against
the colored race is more intense
among certain whites of the South
than was ever the feeling of hatred
against the red men, the original
and only proper owners of the land
we now occupy.
The eyes 0f the whole civilized
world look with utter astonishment
at the conduct of the South so soon
after reconstruction ! This aston
ishment is increased when, it will
bo remembered, the gallows was
cheated of its prey, when the trait
orous crew were pardoned and again
invested with all the rights and
privileges of citizenship ! Embold
ened by the mercy extended by the
government, every thing we see
and hear has the appearance and
the sound of new preparations for
resistance to the old flag ! As tests
of the determination of the govern
ment to force an observance of the
conditions of reconstruction, the
Ku Klux Democracy in Tennessee,
(icorgia and Kentucky are murder
ing in cold blood, inoffensive color
ed men and under the pretext of
"vindicating society," they force
ojx'ti prisons and take therefrom
colored men, and without trial, or
granting the poor wretches an hour
of preparation, they shoot them
with a thousand balls, or hang them
to the first limb.
As a dare to the national author
ities, the Ku Klux Democracy halt
ed a train of cars in Alabama, and
took from ho mail car, the agent,
and hung him, for no offense, save
that of being a colored man !
Lot us hope that the better por--tion
of the Southern Democracy
disapproves such conduct; still, we
can only nope, knowing that the
iK'tter portion, if there be such a
class, could command and compel
the Press of their party to desist
from language calculated to educate
the wicked mind to Just such acts
If wo would be prosperous and
happy, we must obey the laws of
our country in this, is the true se
cret of Peace. But the laws of the
land will be broken and trampled
under foot, tio more, with impunity !
Mark the prediction! Swift and
suro justice will be meted out to
that State whoso local authority is
found insufficient to procure for its
citizens, that protection, and thoso
rights, which are theirs. It is es
timated that in the . Democratic
State of Georgia alone, one hundred
negroes are killtd daily the civil
rights bill, not yet a law, being the
pretext for these murders ! So
common has become the murder
ing of negroes in the South, that the
attention of the government has
been officially called to the fact, and
we are not unprepared to hear at
any moment that the President has
determined to call Congress togeth
er at an early day, to consider the
state of affairs in the South.
While it Ls a matter of congratu
lation that our own State has not
relapsed Into barbarism, we have
looked at the tendency of the de
mocracy with many forebodings,
and with trembling. That a dispo
sition to browbeat and Intimidate
the colored people has manifested
itself, during the summer, ho fair
minded reader will deny. The
Press of the party have Indulged
almost daily in the most disgusting
language In regard to the colored
race. All kinds nf insults have been
offered, and yet, we are at peace
owing, for the most part, to the
great forbearanco of the colored
race, and the counsel of the white
j Were we called upon to point out
such papers, we should point to the
entire Democratic Press. If requir
ed to particularize, we should name
the Southern Home, edited by D. II.
Tf ill rvmfpderate General, as the
leading spirit, and after the Home
the whole pack yelp the same mu
sic! As a sample of the feeling of hat
red to the colored people, in North
Carolina, we copy the following
from the Home of August 21. Al
lowance mut bo made for the at
tempted wit (!) at the expense of
human life. We boil down the ar
ticle, and we find the editor sorry
because no negroes were killed.
Here is the article :
"It turned out badly there were
only four wounded no casualties.
We allude to the colored excursion
that left Charlotte on Sunday, and
became embroiled (the normal des
tiny of Ham) with some other ne
groes at King's Mountain, S. C
The fight began In the whisky shop
and extended until the crowd was
pretty nearly evenly divided.
Knives, pistols, razors, slungshots,
clubs, bludgeons, rocks, and every
other weapon known to Ethiopia's
sable sons, were freely used, and yet
(mournfully) there were no casu
alties ! Why, Tump Ponder's mule
could do better than that ; its elon
gated dexter perambulator has al
ready translated five saddle-colored
voters to the "Happy Hunting
Grounds," as easily as you could
knock a fly off your ear. It's a great
disappointment all that row, and
no casualties "
This is a very meagre sample;
yet, it is easily seen what are the
wishes and what the ultimate design
in regard to the colored race. As
North Carolina only retired from
the Union, after it was crushed out
between Virginia and South Caro
lina, let it not follow in the wake
of such States as Georgia and Ten
nessee, in setting at defiance the
common law or tne lanu. n we
have good and loyal men even
among the Democracy, let them
come to the surface, and frown down
every act that looks like a breach
of faith with the general govern
ment. Let the finger of scorn si
lence the newspaper scribblers who
would again plunge our beloved
country into a civil war a war of
races a war a thousand times more
to be dreaded than a war between
sections. We appeal to the good
men of both races and all parties ;
we appeal in behalf of the women
and children of the country !
P. S. Since writing the above,
President Grant has very promptly
and properly taken measures to put
down lawlessness in the South. We
copy his letter to Secretary of War
" Long Branch, N. J.,
September 2, 1874.
General W. W. Belknap,
Secretary of War :
The recent atrocities in the South,
particularly in Louisiana, Alabama
and South Carolina, show a disre
gard for civil rights and personal
protection that ought not to be tol
erated in any civilized government.
It looks as if unless speedily check
ed matters must become worse until
life and property there will receive
no protection from the local author
ities until such authority becomes
powerless. Under such circum
stances it Is the duty of the govern
ment to give all the aid for the
protection of life and civil rights
legally authorized. To this end I
wish you would consult with the
Attorney General, who is well in
formed as to the outrages already
committed and the localities where
the greatest danger lies, and so or
der troops as to bo available In cases
of necessity. All proceedings for
the protection of the South will bo
under the direction of the law de
partment of the government, and
will be directed by the Attorney
General in accordance with the pro
visions of the Enforcement Acts.
No instructions need, therefore, be
given the troops ordered into the
Southern States, except as they may
be transmitted from time to time on
advice from the Attorney General
or as circumstances may determine
hereafter. Yours truly,
U. S. GRANT."
The latter day piety of Ex-Confederate
President Jefferson Davis,
serves only to provoke a smile of
contempt from those who know the
man and his early and late history.
We are aware that we run the risk
of being accused of a lack of
Christian Charity, when we as
sert as our candid opinion and te
Iicf, that the late speech of Jeffer
son Davis is a bit of hypocritical
cant. The speech to which we al
lude was made by the Ix-Confed-erate
President, at an indignation
meeting held by citizens of Memphis
to express their disapprobation of
the recent acts of lawlessness in
several of the Southern States, in
which the negro has been murdered
by scores, in cold blood, by the dis
ciples of the said Jefferson Davis.
Mr. Davis is reported as having de
livered himself after this wise, and
in the following language:
" Every Southern man in his
memory runs back to the negro
woman wno nursed him ; to the
boy who hunted and fished with
him ; to the man who first taught
him to ride and swim ; and, as he
grew to manhood, the cordial wel
come given by the old nurse, with
a tenderness scarcely inferior to
that of his own mother."
It is possible the ruffians may
have carried out orders a. little in
excess, but that they have carried
out to the letter the programme of
the party, we have not the least
doubt, and it comes with a bad grace
from Mr. Davis the expounder and
leader of the Southern Democracy
that he should shed tears over the
memory of his black mammy, and
the strong nourishment drawn from
her enslaved breast, when he was
In the front to keep her in chains,
and her children in the cotton fields
under the lash of a heartless over-,
The picture is a true one ! Yea,
verily, and no one knew more of
the good qualities of the slave
mother than the Mississippi plan
ters,5 whose white children were
cared for by them, and whose ten
der care made the luxury so much
admired now, and affectionately
remembered ! Davis is not the
only man in the South who fucked
a colored mammy. We would not
be far wrong, if we should estimate
one-tenth of the lives of the chil
dren of slave owners as being in
debted to the milk drawn from the
breasts of women in slavery. And
this fact alone, in our humble opin
ion, is sufficient to deter white men
from murdering the very mothers
and their offspring, whose black
bodies nourished them and reared
them into manhood.
If the language uttered by Jeff.
Davis had fallen from the lius of
our own worthy fellow-citizen, the
venerable Judge Battle, we could
believe in its sincerity but coming
as it does, and under the peculiar
circumstances, we can only see in it
that gross hypocrisy which crops
out. when the strong arm of the
government is being upraised to
punish the fiends who are again in

Sir: Yours of the 28th inst., statin;

- J X o '
County Commissioner to fill the place
of a man who was elected as such in said
county on tho first Thursday of August,
1874, and who, as the petitioners state
will refuse to qualify," and asking
'whether in my opinion it is the duty of
the Governor to appoint a County Com
missioner in compliance with the ro-
quest of the petitioners, or can the men
elected as such, aud w ho choose to qual
ify, lawfully complete their organization
by Jhe election of another County Com
missioner," has been received
There is no express provision made in
the Vllth Article of the constitution,
nor in any other Article, for filling va
cancies in the Board of County Commis
sioners. The first Section of Article VII
provides that in each county there shall
bo elected biennially, by the qualified
voters therof, live commissioners. A
county is a municipal corporation, so
described in the constitution, Article
VII, and its .powers can only be exer
cised by a ' Board of" County "Com
misiioners," as they are styled in the
same Article. " The corporate authori
ties have an inherent right to till vacan
cies " in the Board. And there has been
appropriate legislation to enable County
Commissioners to II 11 vacancies" in
their Board. It was first provided, "that
any vacancy occurring in tho Board of
Commissioners of any county shall be
filled by the Governor of the State.'
See laws of spe-ial session of 1SG8, chap
ter 4, proviso to section 1, page 0. Af
terwards the General Assembly, lawsof
1S70-'71, chapter 70, section 1, page 139,
repealed so much of the law of 1SG3 as
provided for filling vacancies in the
Board of County Commissioners by the
Governor, and further provided that va
cancies " shall be filled by a majority of
said Board." This seems to be the law
at this time. In support of the view
that this legislation is appropriate and
constitutional, I bog leave to refer your
Excellency to the case of People of N. C.
eas rel. Nichols et al.. vs. McKee el al.,
GS X. C. Reports, page 437. The opinion
of the Court seems to refer to this very
legislation ; at any rate, the principles
enunciated sustain it as proper and con
stitutional. My opinion therefore is.
that it is not now and will not be when
the vacancy occurs, the duty of a Gov
ernor to appoint a County Commission
er. And in case the person elected shall
refuse to qualify, then it will be the duty
of the other members of the Board to
qualify and then themselves elect some
one to fill the vacancy.

llow Kicli Men Summer.
It is bad enough to be detained in the
city all summer by pressing work or
by poverty. It Is much better to bo
kept in tho same place by riches. Oh !
but nobody is confined there by being
too wealthy to leave. Then those vera
cious chroniclers, the papers, do not tell
the truth. Here is the record they make
as to some of tho richest men of New
York : , c
i Among those who will be much in
town is Commodore "Vanderbilt, who is
getting too old to go off summering. He
has a fine place on Staten Island, ten
miles down the bay, but the old gentle
man shows great dislike to going thith
er. Perhaps one reason is the fact that
the family vault is there. The Commo
dore has not been down to Staten Island
for several years, except on funeral oc
casions, when his daughter was buried,
and also his first wife. Tho next trip,
no doubt, will be his own funeral. He
loves the world intenselj', and although
his young wife has induced him to make
a large donation to a college, yet it is a
small matter to one of his wealth. The
Comm. dore may mako a short excur
sion, but nowhere can he find any such
comforts as at home. Afctor and Stewart
are but little out of town during the
summer. Astor has a farm at Barry
town, on the Hudson River Railroad,
and hero he was wont to pass a part of
the season ; but he now finds himself
comfortable in his Filth avenue man
sion. Stewart also lives in Fifth avenue,
having the finest house in America, aud
hence, although he has a farm at Tuca
hoe, he seldom vists it. Peter Cooper
will also pass tho largest part of the
summer in town, and so will George
Law. These men find nothing conge
nial in the wild excitement of a water
ing place, and hence prefer a quiet life
at home. James Lennox is one of the
few men of great wealth who spend the
summer out of town. He has owned a
villa at New Post for many years, and
has a tenant family in it all the year
round. During tho summer he resorts
thither, generally accompanied by his
maiden sister, and being a bachelor, ho
thus takes all his family with him.
William M. Vanderbilt spent a few days
at Sharon, and then returned to apply
himself to business.
A merchant of Chicago was in-
duced by two friends to invest with
them in a land speculation at some
distance off the purchase was made,
and the parties divided the land in
three parts, keeping the two best
locations, as they supposed, for
themselves, and appropriating the
other third to the absent partner :
for some years he continued to pay
taxes for it,
Without ever Having
seen it; but finally becoming ruined

visit his distant property, when, .to
his friends had palmed upon him
an apparently worthless swamp.
The N. Y. Independent thus tells
the balance of the story:
"Sighing just a little at the du
plicity of his friends, he wandered
over the swamp he almost disdained
to call his own, and splashed
through its mud and water in des
perate hopelessness. Poverty and
want stared him in the face,
when lo ! something else stared him
in the face too. He found something
on his land. What was it? It was
not California gold nor South Af
rica diamonds ; neither was it oil,
iron, or coal, it was wna cranDer
ries. "Presto, change!" Now mark
the result. That land is worth $800
per acre and he is worth half a mil
lion dollars. He was a sharp man,
with an eye to business; and he saw
at once a fortune in those cranber
ries, and went to work to realize it
by cultivation and systematic la
bor, and he has a regularly trained
brigade of children and hands to
pick and prepare the cranberries
for market, for which he realizes as
high as $21 per barrel, while the
men wno intenuea 10 piay ajoKe
on him now mourn over their own
unvaluable land and sigh for the
fortune their joking lost them."
Another Inj unction made 1'er-
It will be remembered that dur
ing the past winter the Board of
Trustees for the Eighth Township
(city cf New-13erne included) levi
ed a most oppressive tax, a tax not
only burdensome, but,as was claim
ed by the tax payers, altogether il
legal. Judge Clarke refusing to en
join the trustees from collecting this
tax, the matter was laid before
Judge Russell, who refused to inter
fere in the jurisdiction of another
Judge. Application for relief was
made to Judge Watts the injunc
tion granted by him was afterwards
dissolved by Judge Clarke, where
upon an appeal was made to the
Supreme Court by Alexander Mitch
ell, Esq., on behalf of himself and
other tax payers. At the late term
of this Court the case was decided
in favor of tho plaintiffs, and the
injunction made perpetual. So the
trustees will have to whistle for the
$1,800 that they sought illegally to
collect. A few more experiences of
this kind, especially if followed by
pecuniary responsibility, will make
public oliicials somewhat more care
ful how they attempt to exceed
their powers. New-Berne Journal

Printing a book in China is done
somewhat as follows: Two pages
are written by a person trained to
the business, on a sheet of thin pa
Der. divided into columns by black
lines, and in the space between the
two napes are written the title ot
LhQ tnfi thAnnmhprnf chanter
and page ; when the sheet has been
tilU If V " - - w t
prined it is folded down through
his space, so as to bring the title,
etc., partly on each page. The sheet,
when ready for printing, is pasted
face downward on a smooth block
of wood, made usually from the pear
or plum tree. As soon as it is dry
the paper is rubbed off with great
care, leavinsr oeninu an lnverteu
impression of the characters. An
other workman now cuts away the
blank space by means of a sharp
crraver and the block with the char
acters in high relief passes to the
printer, who performs his work by
hand. The two points that he has
to be most careful about are to ink
the characters equally with his
brush,and to avoid tearing the paper
when taking the impression. From
a good w7oodeu block some 15,000
copies may be printed, and when
the characters have been sharpened
up a little it is possible to obtain
8,000 or 10,000 more impressions.
