A Call for a Convention of the

to which their States respectively

may be made to the country.
The Republicans of the South,
equally with the good citizens of
other localities, demand peace and

Carl Schurz and tho Colored
This gentleman made a speech in I
Missouri a few days ago, in which
he well sustained the reputation we
have for some time accorded him as
one of tho most accomplished dem
agogues of the country. Mr. Schurz
is reported as saying in substance,
that tho establishment of mixed
schools would not be of benefit to
the colored race in tho South, but
that on the contrary such a system
would work to their serious injury ;
and that the ill effects of the plan as
proposed in the civil rights bill
would be mainly felt by the poorer
class of the whites who were unable
to educate their children at private
institutions of learning. Now, we
do not pretend to question the cor
rectness of the Senator's position in
this particular respect. Indeed, we
rather agree with him that tho es
tablishment of mixed schools would
not work beneficial results to our
colored friends in the South. We
can go further and say, that we do
not believe any large portion of our
colored fellow-citizens ever desired
or expected the incorporation of any
such feature, but would rather have
preferred that their offspring should
receive instruction in schools com
posed of teachers and children of
their own color and class. It is
natural that persons of all classes
should hold social familiar inter
course with those only of similar
tastes and views with themselves,
and the colored people form no ex
ception to this rule. If there are
some who desire any such affilia
tions as mixed schools (and we do
not doubt it), they were instigated
In the first instance by Carl Schurz
and his followers, wTho hoped by
placing the father of the proposed
measure, Horace Greeley, before the
people in 1872 to win over a suffi
cient number of the colored voters
to give him the electoral votes of the
Southern States and elect him Pres
ident. It is not to bo denied that Carl
Schurz and his followers were well
posted as to Mr. Greeley's views
upon the mixed school question at
.the time his name was placed before
the people for the Presidency. For
many years before, he had, through
the columns of the Tribune and in
: various speeches, promulgated his
t peculiar ideas to the people of the
' country on the relations between
'tho' two races. These ideas were
couched in no doubtful language,
and it Is well known that in Mr.
Greeley's letterof acceptance he not
only did not retract any of his for-
mer notions, but even reiterated his
continued devotion to tho idiosyn-
crasies that attached to his past life;
yet, Carl Schurz, actuated by greed
for office and hatred to General
Grant, urged the election of the man
who entertained views radically
LxlifTerent from those which he now
admits are detrimental to the Inter
ests of the colored man and calcu
lated to impair the good feeling sub
sisting between them and the whites.
How can Mr. Schurz, In the face of
the . position he assumed In 1872,
now expect the people of Missouri
or any other section to receive the
speech lately made in any
I light than a catchpenny attempt of
I a disappointed deraao-ue to again
create discontent and discord In the
Republican ranks. The people of
Missouri have already been suffl-
ripntlv flp,Ufleti bv thi elfish nolit-
ciently deiuciea oy tmssemsn pont-
ical adventurer, we hope, to ever
again follow him in his puny efforts
to wreak his vengeance u Don Gen-
eral Grant. Like others who have
tried the same game, Schurz will
find that Grant's refusal to him of
the Spanish Mission is only a small
P0 P-sent compared to
which will, we trust, consiam him
win, o "
I and his turbulent political followers
to ignominious retirement, never
again to disturb the country by their
tricks and combinations.
But there is another point in the
crafty Senator's speech which clearly
exhibits his disposition to take ad
vantage of the disorder now exist
ing in the South to scare the colored
voters into the support of his mon-
rrTCi nartv. He tells them in sub-
stance that if they will only divide
and cast some of their votes for the
Democratic party, that they will
doubtless be treated with more con
sideration ; that the wholesale mur
ders and whippings every day in
flicted upon them are only because
they choose to vote solidly for the
measures and party of their choice.
We did not expect Schurz to make
this admission ; but it i3 true. If
the colored men of the South will
only cast a sufficient number of
votes for the Democratic party, to
insure its success, we do not doubt
that they would be willing to allow
them at least a little peace. It is,
after all, only the loaves and fishes,
they are struggling for, and theyare
willing to stoop to any degree of
sycophancy to accomplish their pur
pose. We are happy in the belief,
however, that the colored people of
the South know their rights too
well to be willing to barter them
merely for tho poor privilege of be
ing exempt from persecution and
outrage. They know that the same
benignGovernment which bestowed
is willing ana ready to
enforce their rights to a free ballot,
and they are not to be intimidated
threats from either Ku Klux
Democrats or so-called Liberal Re
Since the days of General Jack
son there has not existed in this
country such a party in the true
meaning of the term as a National
Democratic Party. From the time
that the old hero placed his admin
istration on high national grounds
by the issue of his celebrated proc
lamation against nullification, the
Democratic party has been made
up of factions in every section of
the Union, differing widely in prin
ciple and hanging together only
with a view to the distribution of
the spoils of office. To use the lan
guage of one of its former promi
nent members, it was kept together
by 4t the cohesive power of public
plunder." The platforms of the
party are so shaped as to be capable
of one construction North and an
other South. In the North the
members of the party, althoucrh
they take issue with Republicans on
many questions, still, in order to ob
tain power, profess the most ardent
love for the Union. In the South,
in order to keep pace with public
sentiment, they adopt planks in all
of their platforms expressive, either
directly or indirectly,of their attach
ment to the lost cause. The lead
ers in the North during the exist
ence of a Presidential campaign,
in order to catch the electoral votes
of the Southern States, lustily pro
claim themselves Northern men
with Southern principles." Thus,
by platforms and resolves they hope
to unite the various sections with
the view to national success.
The Republican party, on the oth
er hand, is purely national in all its
tendencies. Its platforms are wide
enough and plain enough to be com
prehended and accepted by patriots
of all sections. It offers nothing to
the freemen of the North which it
is unwilling to extend to those of
the South. All of Its measures tend
to the good of the country at large,
and no act calculated to work par
ticular injury to any section is ever
wilfully perpetrated. In short, the
Republican party is the only one
now known to American politics
under whose banner the people of
all classes can rally with any degree
of hope for the prosperity and con
tinued welfare of the entire Nation.

dignation exists among the people
of both parties in Caldwell county
on account of the late legal decis-
ion requiring the OommMoro, of
the county to issue bonds in aid of
the Chester and Lenoir Railroad.
The corporation is said to be under
Democratic control, and at the elec-
tion submitting the proposition of
county aid, a majority of the reg

failure of the people to take any
part in the question was the result
of the belief, that it was necessary
to obtain a majority of those regis

Supreme Grand Master of the Uni
verse, in his infinite wisdom and
love, to call from labor to eternal
refreshment on the loth day of Au-
gust, 1874,our beloved brother, John
White, a Past Master of this Lode;
Resolved, 1. That while we bow
in meek submission to Him who is
the only true source of light and
joy, yet we do realize in the death
of Bro. White, the sad fact that this
Lodge has lost one of not only its
oldest but most active and useful
members, and the fraternity one of
its purest, best and most beloved
sons. But few if any of us were
better skilled than he in the use of
the beautiful implements of our or
der, or employed them more faith
fully in labors of benevolence and
feelings of charity to all, and in
erecting that spiritual temple, that
" house not made with hands eter
nal in the heavens."
2. That we will be moved by this
sad visitation to a more serious and
profitable reflection upon our lives,
and an earnest preparation for our
fast approaching: and also certain
summons, so that by an emulation
of his virtues we may finally share
3. That we do tender to his strick-
en family the assurance of our heart-
felt sympathy and fraternal condol-
ence in this their deep bereavement.
4. That in token of our esteem
and grief we will wear the usual
badge of mourning for thirty days.
5. That these resolutions be en
tered upon the minutes, and a copy
be furnished to the family of the
deceased, and copies be forwarded
to the Raleigh Era and Tobacco

What Came ol" a Tom Boy.
Miss Martha Knight is a good
looking girl who was born in Bos
ton, and very early in life mortified
her parents and friends by being
that childish feminine monstrosity
called a "Tom Boy." She cared
nothing for dolls and miniature
housekeeping, like other little girls,
but wanted gimlets and augers, and
saws and hatchets, and nails and
lumber to work with. Instead of
learning to sew on doll's clothes,she
mado sleds and wasrons and kites
for her numbskull brothers, and she
nnaily became a wonder of mechan
ical genius. Her taste ran that way,
ana ner menus concluded to let it
TO when thev found thev could not
ston it. Miss Martha Kniffht.beins?
poor, went into a paper bag manu-
factory to earn her livelihood. Of
course such a girl could not stay at
home and drone away her life at
the family fireside. She went to
work like a man, and has now be
come famous and the pride of the
old folks. She has won the distinc
tion of being the first female inven
tor that ever received a intent for a
complete invention at Washington.
Her invention is a machine for
making paper bags. Several at
tempts had previously been made
in tins direction by men of mechan
ical genius, and all had failed. This
"Tomboy" has now done it. and
made a success. Unaided she drew
her plans, and she superintended
the putting up of the machinery at
Amnersr, juass. it works well, and
her everlasting fortune' is made.

THE ALDINE, while issued with all
the regularity, has none of the tem
porary or txmely interest characteristic
of ordinary periodicals. It is an ele
gant miscellany ot pure, light and grace
ful literature; and a collection of pic
tures, the rarest specimens of artistic
skill, in black and white. Although
each succeeding number affords a fresh
pleasure to its friends, the real Talue
and beauty of The Aldine will be most
appreciated after it has been bound up
at the close of the year. While other
publications may claim superior cheap
ness, as compared with rivals of a sim
ilar class, The Aldine is a unique and
original conception alone and unap
proached absolutely without compe
tition in price or character. The pos

Art Department, 1874.
The illustrations of The Aldine have
won a world-wide reputation, and in
the art centres of Europe it is an ad
mitted fact that its woodcuts are exam
ples of the highest perfection ever at
tained. The common prejudice in favor
of "steel plates," is rapidly yielding to
a more educated and discriminating
taste which recognizes the advantages
of superior artistic quality with greater
facility of production. The wood cuts
of The Aldine possess all the delicacy
and elaborate finish ol the most costly
steel plate, while they afford a better
rendering of the artist's original.
To fully realize the wonderful work
which The Aldine is doing for the cause
of art culture in America, it is only
necessary to consider the cost to the
people of any other decent representa
tions of the productions of great pain
ters. In addition to designs by the mem
bers of the National Academy, and
other noted American artists, The Al
dine will reproduce examples of the
best foreign masters, selected with a
view to the highest artistic success and
greatest . general interest. Thus the
subscriber to The Aldine will, at a
trifling cost, enjoy in his own home the
pleasures and refining influences of
The auarterlv tinted plates-for 1874

The Christmas issue for 1874 will con
tain special designs appropriate to the
season, by our best artists, and will
surpass in attractions any of its prede
cessors. Premium for 1874.
Every subscriber to The Aldine for
the year 1874 will receive a pair of
chromos. The original pictures were
painted in oil for the publishers of The
Aldine.hy Thomas Moran, whose great
Colorado picture was purchased by
Congress for ten thousand dollars. The
subjects were chosen to represent "The
East" and "The West." One is a view
in The White Mountains, New Hamp
shire; the other gives The Cliffs of
Green River, Wyoming Territory.
The difference in the nature of the
scenes themselves is a pleasing dontrast,
and affords a good display of the artist's
scope and coloring. The chromos are
each worked froih thirty distinct plates,
and are in size (12x16) and appearance
exact fac-similes of the originals. The
presention of a worthy example of
America's greatest landscape painter to
the subscribers of The Aldine was a
bold but peculiarly happy idea, and its
successful realization is attested by the
following testimonial, over the signa
ture of Mr. Moran himself.
Newark, N. J., Sept. 20th, 18G3
Messrs. James Sutton fc Co.
Gentlemen, I am delighted with the
proofs in color of your chromos. They
are wonderfully successful representa
tions by mechanical process of the
Signed,) Thos. Moras.
These chromos are in every sense
American. They are by an original
American process, with material o
American manufacture, from designs
of American scenery by an American
painter, and presented to subscribers to
the first successful American Art uonr
nal. If no better because of all this,
they will certainly possess an interest
no foreign production can inspire, and
neither are !they any the worse if by
reason of peculiar facilities of produc
tion they cost the publishers only a
trifle, while equal in every respect to
other chromos that are sold singly for
double the subscription price of The
Aldine. Persons of taste will prize
these pictures for themselves not for
the price they did or did not cost, and
will appreciate the enterprise that ren
ders ther distribution possible.
If any subscriber should indicate a
I reference for a figure subject, the pub
ishers will send Thoughts of Home,"
a new and beautiful chromo, ljx20
inches, representing a little Italian exile
whose speaking eyes betray the long
ings of his heart.
Terms $5.00 per annum, in advance,
with Oil Chromos free.
For Fifth Cents Extra, the Chromos
will be sent, mouuted, varnished,
and prepaid by mail.
The Aldine will, hereafter, be obtain
able only by subscription. There will
be reduced or club rate ; cash for sub
scriptions must be sent to the publish
ers direct, or handed to the local can
vasser, without responsibility to the pub
lishers, except in cases where the cer
tificate is given, bearing the fac simile
signature of James Sutton fe Co.
Any person wishing to act perma
