READING MATTER OA1
FIRST AND FOURTH PAGES.
A Wokp of Advice. All parties,
to some extent, suffer from having
in their ranks bad and designing
men, arid the Republican party forms
no exception to this rule. The party
that takes the most prompt and efficient
measures to purgo itself of such char
acters deserves and will, in the end, se
cure, the complete endorsement of the
j.cople; while encouragement of cor
ruption or malfeasance of any descrip
tion, although it may be attended with
temporary success, is bound in the end
to bring disaster and disintegration.
TLU has been the history of all parties.
Taking into consideration this view of
tho matter, the AVahas uniformly insis
ts! that tho most efficient means of se
curing permanent success to the Repub
lican party should consist in placing
forward for promotion only such men
as could command the respect of its
l.-st membersV We hold, further, that
it is the duty of tho party to fully In
vestigate "II charges against thoso who
have been entrusted with office, and if
f.und to bo of a character sufficiently 1
grave then tho offenders should bo held
toa strict accountability. If this be the
uniform courso of action tho people
will need no further incentive to a vig
orous support of Republican rule, and
it will ensftre to us that success in the
future which all Union-loving citizens
so much desire. The principles of the
Republican party are such as will con
tinue to receive tho endorsement of the
best in the land, provided, always, that
honest and efficient men are selected
to curry them out. We trust that
in tlu. rci.i -:aiiirti.ion of tho party for
the great ontet of 1876, our friends
throughout the State will bo governed
in their selection of leaders more by
real merit nd peculiar fitness than by
louil-niouthcd pretensions on the part
of those who havo nothing more to re
commend them to favor than their own
expressed devotion of loyalty to party.
Self-styled Republicans are plentiful,
but we need as leaders not only good
Republicans, but honest and capable
men who will do their duty without fear
or favor and with an eye to the public
g'"l.
Thk i.ati: -Elections. Tho latest in
telligence does not materially alter the
results of the recent elections as given
in our lat issue. From a combination
of causes the Republicau party has suf
fered what wo believo to bo a temporary
defeat. Tho loss of tho House of Rep
resentatives, while it must necessarily
prove a stumbling block in the way of
conducting tho atlairs of the govern
ment on a basis in strict accord with Re
publican principles, can in no very im
portant way interfere with tho Execu
tive or Judicial departments of the gov
ernment. It has beeH quite a common
precedent in tho history of the country
f-r the administration in power to havo
its majority either entirely ovcrccyne or
preatly damaged in the midst of its
term. During the administration of
President Jackson tho popular branch
of the government was against him, and
we think the same can be said to a
preater or less extent of Mr. Fillmore's
administration. It is useless for us at
this time to criticise the causes which
have contributed to check the great Re
publicau party in its onward course.
That there were many abuses existing
in its ranks, none will deny. Let us
hope that our present losses will causo
us to rouse up to tho importance of so
purging our ranks, and so directing our
affairs as to induce all who may have
temporarily deserted us to again gird up
their loins to renewed exertions in be
half of our glorious principles.
It is impossible to fix with auy cer
tainty the Democratic majority in the
lower branch of tho next Congress, as
New Hampshire, Connecticut, Califor
nia and Mississippi do not elect until
next Spring. At present the Democrats
laim seventy-seven majority, includ
ing all shades of opposition.
Judicial Opinion. At tho last term
f Orange Superior Court an action was
brought by Judge Cloudagainst Thom-
J. Wilson, the recently elected Judge
of the 8th Judicial District, claiming
that the election of the said Wilson was
null and void and that he, Cloud,. is the
rightful Judge of said district. After a
full hearing of the case,- Judge Kerr,
before whom the matter had been
brought by agreement, rendered-a de
cision "that Thomas J. Wilson haying
been duly elected under an act of the
General Assembly, chap. 118, laws of
lS73-'74, and commissioned by Ilia Ex
cellency Curtis H. Brogden, is the law
ful and rightful Judge of the Eighth Ju
dicial District, and entitled to hold the
courts thereof."
It vas farther ordered that Judge
John M. Cloud be taxed with the, costs
of the suit.
We state for the information of all
concerned that the contracts for carry
ing the malls In North Carolina will be
niade for one year only, that Is from the
lt day of July, 1875, : to - the 30th of

Compulsory Education, in Gek
many. Hon. Joseph Medill, an excel
lent writer and careful observer, after
an extended tour through Germany, in
an interesting letter to his paper, the
Chicago Tribune among other subjects
discusses at some length the educational
question, and takes strong ground in
favor of the compulsory system. He
says:
"There are upwards of 100,000 teach
ers in the public schools of Germany,
and the number of scholars enrolled,
between the ages of six and fourteen,
exceeds 6,000,000. Tho number attend
ing private primary schools is about
500,000, while thoso who attend the
higher schools, academies, gymnasia,
technical schools and universities ex
ceed 500,000. Thus there are 7,000,000
scholars attending all the schools of
Germany. The United States of Amer
ica, with an equal population, can"
scarcely exhibit half that number; and
yet Americans are much given to boast
ing about the vast n ess and superiority
of their school system. They had better
adopt the German system of compul
sory attendance, and force the 2,000,000
or 3,ooo,uoo oi youtn now roaming
around the streets and going into loaf
erism before they institute comparisons
with the public schools or Germany.
Children in the country attend school
for ten months in tho year. How many
months do American children average?
Does it exceed half that time? The
youth of Germany are being educated ;
the youth ol America are wen, mo
less boasting about it the better. The
Germans would regard our system of
voluntary schools, kept only three or
four months in the year in the country
districts, with moro than one-third of
the children never in attendance, but
growing up in vice, ignorance ana ue-
pravity, as very little better man no
system at all. The compulsory feature
of their system they consider tho back
bone of It."
Stand Up. Under the decision of
Chief Justice Waitt, in the Swazoy suit,
the holders of what are known as tho
construction bonds of tho North Caro
lina Railroad a ro allowed the privilege
of selling so much of the State's stock in
said corporation as will discharge tho
ntcrest on their bonds remaining un
paid, unless the Legislature shall pro-
ido for its payment on or before April
next, with the understanding, howev
er, that it tho EegUlatUt-o shall give
good reasons for a failure to levy a tax
therefor, tho sale shall bo postponed for
a few months.
This places our Democratic friends in
a position to either back down, or stand
up to their boasted respect for tho honor
and credit of tho State, the want of
which they havo so persistently charged
upon the Republicans. Wo await with
much curiosity to see w hat action the
"worth and intelligence of the State"
will take.
Congress. This body will meet on
the first Monday in December for tho
short term which expires on tho fourth
day of March, 1S75. The recently elec
ted members of Congress will take their
seats on the first Monday in December,
1875, that being the commencement of
the new Congress. If, however, an
extra session should be called at any
timo between the 4th of March, 1S75,
and tho regular day of meeting, tho
newly elected members will assemble.
It is presumed that in the absenco of
any extraordinary condition of things
there will bo no Summer or called
session.
The General Assembly. This body
will assemble on Monday, the 16th inst.
Its political complexion is estimated as
follows: Senate, 33 Democrats and 12
Republicans. House, 82 Democrats,
34 Republicans and 4 Independents.
While it will be impossible to give our
readers a full statement of its proceed
ings, we will endeavor to lay before
them the most important measures of
the session.
Republican Superiority Confess
ed. The New York Tribune, (Liberal,)
commenting on tho inability of the
Democrats of New England to see and
improve their opportunities to regain
the popular confidence, says : "Tempo
rary reverses have sobered the party of
the Administration and taught its lead
ers to correct their errors. It can be
said of it, indeed, that no party in the
history of the country was ever so sen
sitive to public opinion, none ever so
readily obeved tho helm of popular sen
timent as did tho Republican party for
the first twelve years of its existence.
Whether that record can be continued
is an open question. On the other hand,
the effect of tho most trifling successes
upon the Democratic party, instead of
steadying them with a sense of respon
sibility, has been rather to set them
crazy with tho desire for spoils and in
toxicated them with the plunder. There
has been no exception to this rule. The
unprejudiced observer of our politics
cannot help remarking that in the sense
of being discreet, prudent, clear headed,
the present dominant party has inva
riably shown itself superior to its oppo
nents." OFFICIAL.
