THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1S74.
On the 13th inst., elections were
held in several of the North-western
States for Congressmen, mem
Uts of the Legislature, dc. He
turns from the States of Ohio and
Indiana indicate that those States
have gone Democratic. It is hard
ly worth while to remind our in
telligent readers of the fact, that in
the States referred to, there were
many side issues involved, causing
minor differences of opinion among
men of all political parties. In the
State of Ohio, for instance, the Re
publican party adopted as a matter
of State policy the prohibition plat
form, while in Indiana, matters of
a purely local character contributed
to the temporary division of our
party in the State.
It is well- to remind our Demo
cratic friends of the South, that the
o-called triumph of their party in
IK)rtions of the Xorth-west, is far
from being an endorsement of the
platforms and principles of the
Southern Democracy. It is proper
they should realize the fact that no
party In the North would sanction
or even tolerate such declarations of
disloyalty as are embodied in the
platforms of the White League and
Ku Klux Democracy South. No,
gentlemen, Democracy North, and
Democracy South, are now, as of
old, two very different concerns.
Its professions of loyalty in the
North sometimes serve to gain
temporary advantages on local is
sues, while the assertions of devo
tion to the lost cause openly made
in the South contribute to hold in
its ranks that very large and dis
contented class who let no occasion
pass to exhibit their chagrin and
disappointment arising from the
defeat of their attempts to perpetu
ate slavery and divide the Republic.
. In all parties local differences will
occur. It is a source of congratula
tion to us, as it-is to all true Repub
licans, thatourparty is never found
wanting in the zeal and energy ne
cessary to victory, whenever ques
tions of national importance are
brought to the front. The Demo
cratic press may make the most of
what they choose to claim as victo
ries in Ohio and Indiana. In the
great contest of lt7G, when the Re
publican party shall arise in its
might to again go forth to battle,
jointing with pride to its past re
cord as an indication of its future
course, it will require something
more than the united efforts of Cop
Ierhead3 North and White League
Democracy South to stay its march
to a grand and glorious victory.
perhaps around Greensboro,) who
knew who the appointees were un
til their names were announced as
being present at the Convention,
and we are informed by a promi
nent Republican, that a dispatch
from him in Washington City,, to
one of the Committee in .Greens
boro, failed to elicit even a reply.
Wc think the action of the Com
mittee in this matter Is exceedingly
strange, and the Republicans of the
State want an explanation.
Vc ate enabled ,to state, authori
tatively that recent" hints at the de
fection of Governor W. V. Holder
of North Carolina, from the Renub-
can party are without tne leasi
foundation in truth. In a letter to
a gentleman in this city, written a
few davs since, he says: mere
is no foundation whatever for the
suggestion that I am a lukewarm
Republican. I am as firm and tixed
as I was in 1SGS. I have no po
litical future, and I do not desire,
any ; but as long as I shall take an
interest in public affairs, I expect
to vote the Republican ticket."
Previous to the rebellion Governor
Holden was, probably, the most
popular and inlluential leader of the
Democratic party in North Carolina.
He made an issue with his party on
secession, and the. Union sentiment
in the State, kept alive during the
war, was due more to him and the
manly attitude of his paper, the
Standard, than to any other man.
At the close of tho war he at once
assumed full affiliation with the Na
tional Republican party, and has
ever since been unwavering in the.
support and advocacy of its princi
ples and measures. No man has
been more grossly maligned and
persecuted, both during the rebel
lion and since. The suggestion of
his defection or lukewarmness now j
was absurd upon.its lace and scarcely
We copy the foregoing Editorial
from the Washington C7ironicte of
the 13th ir.st. No Republican of
standing in North Carolina ever
doubted Governor Holden 's devo
tion to the Republican party. The
hints referred to above are but the
Ikisc inventions of those upon w hom
the party in North Carolina has set
its seal of condemnation, and are
directed at Governor Holden be
cause he refused to aid them, either
by his vote or encouragement, in
swindling the people of Wake coun
ty. We can pay Governor Holden
no higher compliment than to say
that, at no time during his career
has he enjoyed to a higher extent

publicansof North Carolina than at

".Tho invention to which we allude
applies an anticipative correction of
this catastrophe by its automatic ac

WHOLESALE AND RETAIL.
A meeting of the State Itepubli
ran Kxecutive Committee took
lIace in this city on Tuesday, the
(;th day of October. It was under
tood that the meeting was called
for the purpose of appointing dele
gates to a convention of Republi
cans, from what are known as the
reconstructed States, to meet at
Chattanooga, Tennessee, on the 13th
inst. It is rumored that the com
m it tee did designate certain gentle
men to represent the Republicans
of North Carolina in said conven
tion, but we have failed to see a
single person who could give us any
correct information as to who they
were. If they were appointed at
all, their names and residences
have been kept a profound secret
in the bosoms of those composing
the committee. The call for the
meeting of the committee first ap
Ieared in the Nexc North Stale, and
we naturally concluded, that If the
Era was not furnished with the
list the AVir North State would not
have been slighted, but we have
searched the columns of that paper
in vain for the names of the fortu
But Xorth Carolina icas repre
sented at Chattanooga, and the dele
gates delivered their credentials.
Somebody must have made out
these credentials, and must have
had some authority for so doing.
Why is it that the names of these
delegates are withheld from the
Republicans of North Carolina ?
By what authority does the Execu
tive Committee of the great Repub
lican Party in North Carolina ex
ercise this secret mode of proceed
ings? Have packed conventions,
packed caucusses, and secret wire
pulling become so common in the
party as to lead even its State
Executive Committee to attempt
to carry out such political Jugglery?
It looks like it. There is some
thing wrong in this business. We
say now, as we have said -before,
that if the Chattanooga Convention
is to avail anything, if its proceed
ings are to have any weight in
shaping the future course of the
Republican party, then such feeling
as actuated the State Executive
Committee in secretly appointing
delegates, Is not calculated to ad
vance the prospect. Thero were
not ten men outside of the Com
mittee in all the country around
Jtaleigh, and no where else (except
We hope our political friends will
cut out and file away the following
extract from the Washington Jle-
intbtic. If every man will do his
duty by earnest appeals to his neigh
borhood friends from now out, the
Republican party cannot fail of suc
cess in North Carolina in 187G :
The Way to Win". An hour's
quiet talk with a lukewarm neigh
bor will do more to arouse him to an
earnest support of the Republican
party than a dozen stump speeches.
Mass-meetings impart entnusiasm
to organized bodies and keep them
active in the irood work, but a per
sonal canvass by the right kind of
men makes converts and thus adds
to the party strength. Every town

Handling an Arinjr.
General Sherman, in his letter on
the army, says: It is related of
Napoleon that his last words were
" Tete-d,-Aruiee.M Doubtless as the
shadow of death obscured his
memory," the last thought that re
mained for speech was ol some event
when lie was directing an impor
tant4' head of column." I believe
that every general who has handled
armies in battle must recall from
his own experience the intensity of
thought on aomo similar occasion,
when by a single command he had
given the finishing stroke to some
complicated action ; but to me re
curs another thought that is worthy
of record, and may encourage others
who are to follow us in our pro
fession. I never saw the roar ot an
army engaged in battle but I feared
that some calamity had happened
at the front. The apparent confu
sion, broken wagons, dead horses,
men lying about dead and maimed,
parties hastening to and fro in
seeming disorder, and a general ap
prehension of something dreadful
about to ensue all these signs,
however, lessened as I neared the
front, aud there the contrast was
perfect ; perfect order, men and
horses full of confidence, and it
was not unusual for general hilarity,
laughing and cheering. Although
cannon, might be firiug, the mus
ketry clattering, and the enemy's
shot hitting close, there reigned a
general feeling of strength and
security that bore a marked con
