The Suffrage Question.
A close observation of the move
ments of their leaders is sufficient to
convince the masses of the people
Unit the Democratic party is not
friendly to popular rights. Their

U-n than increase the privileges
which have been accorded to the
,.r.!o under Roi.ubliean rule.
Tluitoneofthegreatobjectssought
uftcr is an abridgement of the pres
ent mode of suffrage, is apparent
from a bill recently introduced in
the .Senate, by Mr. Waring, propos
ing such a change in the Constitu-
. A A
ti n or tne fctnie as wouiu require
the exhibition of a poll-tax receipt
a. a necessary qualification for vo
ting. The reasons which prompt
the Democracy to desire this change
arc clear. Mr. Waring and those
who affiliate with him are well
aware that the operations of such a
foiitur jin our laws would be to a
lanr' extent one sided. The color-
nl citizens of the State are known
to I- the poorer class of our people,
nnd Urn rreat maioritv of them
think proper to exercise the privil-
of votinir in the interest of the
K publican party, it is hoped by the
De mocracy that this poll-tax quali
fication will operate to such an ex
tent in their favor as to give them
permanent power in the State. We,
however, call the attention of the fort to come to a satisfactory u nder
peopleof the State to the inference standing with the creditors of the
that Mr. Waring and his friends are
ready to disfranchise a considerable
portion of our citizens for party
purposesj even in the face of the fact
that by to doing, North Carolina
would loe one or more Repre-
scntatives in the Congress of the
United States.
Sixrt ion 2, Article 14 of the Fed-
oral Constitution, after providing
that Kenrescntatlves snail ne appor-
tioned among the reveral States ac-
cording to their respective numbers
(excluding Indians not taxed)
reads : 4 liut when the njrht to vote
at any election for choice of electors
i
i -
for President and Vice President of
the United States, representatives
in Congress, the executive and judi
cial otlieers of a Slate, or the mem
l p of the legislature thereof, is
denied to any of the male inhabit
ant of such State, being twenty-one
years of age, and citizens of the
Inked States, or in anyway abridg-
f!, except for participation in re
union or other crime, the basis of
representation therein shall be re
duced in the proportion which the
number of such male citizens shall
U'ar to the whole number of male
citizens twenty-one years of age in
ueh State." The italics above are
our own.
We are can Aden t that the good
people of North Carolina would
openly rebuke such attempts to sac
rifice their material interests for
Iarty ends, but we regret to say,
the history of the Democratic party
for the past fourteen years leads to
lie belief that political ascendency
k in the opinion of their leading
hien, of paramount importance to
the public good. Let us of the Re
publican party continue steadfast in
our devotion to the great principles
upon which our organization was
founded, never doubting that the
people in tbeir own good time will
set their seal of condemnation upon
such glaring infringements of their
rights as are contemplated in Mr.
taring's proposition, both as re
gards individuals and our position
as a State of the American Union.
Left. We regret to learn that
our young friend,- F. W. Blizard,
clerk in the office of Col. p. W.
1'erry, Supervisor of Internal Rev
enue, has been called to England on
account of the serious illness of his
mother and sister. Fred, as he is
commonly called among his friends,
-ame to Raleigh in 1870, and by his
business qualifications and gentle
manly deportment eoon won the
confidence and esteem of our peo
ple. We sincerely hope that he may
return at no distant time to spend
k days among us. ' -
Lcsral Advertising The Fo pry-
is in of Democracy.
In the House, on the&linat., Mr.
Wood introduced a bill which com
mended itself at once to persons
who have given the subject any
thought. A similar bill was intro-
411 ocliiittr u;i, uy
vir. ivnen, dui was not acteu upon
for want of time. It provided that
hereafter all public notices of exec
utors, administrators, sheriffs, con
stables, commissioners, tax collec
tors, clerks of the Superior Court or
judges of probate should be publish
ed in some newspaper or newspapers
if there be any published in the
county in which said placemen and
officers reside, for four weeks, pro
vided notice to non-residents should
be published for six wTeeks. Clerks
or judges of probate were to insert no
tices in some newspaper published
in their judicial districts in cases
where no newspaper is published in
the county in which they reside.
All notices heretofore authorized by
law in newspapers, and all notices

purposes of the bill deemed public
notices.
' The passage of this bill into a law
would have secured something like
justice to parties whose property
may be disposed of under legal pro
cess, and prevented its sacrifice and
sale at a mere nominal figure, as is
now the case, arising from the pres
ent ridiculous and farcical mode of
advertising required by law. The
press, of both parties, and prom
inent Democrats, as well as Re
publicans, asked for its passage ; and
yet, the Democratic House tabled the
bill ! What will Col. Allen and the
Greensboro Patriot say
e nope tne bill may
be taken
from the table, placed upon the cal-
cnuar arm passeu.
Our Debt.
It is to be hoped that this Gener
al Assembly will not finally ad-
journ without making an honest ef-
State. Although it is not expected
that anything like a full discharge
of our indebtedness can be accom-
plished. vet. the many holders of
our bonds in this country and Eu-
rope naturally expect that some ar
rangement will be entered into look-
ing to a future adjustment or an
equitable scale. If we cannot pay
all, then half, or a quarter, on an
eishth. or whatever we can. it is
better that some understanding
should be arrived at than that the
present do nothing policy should be
adhered to. Other States are mak
ing strenuous efforts to compromise
their monetary affairs, and with
show of success. Why should North
Carolina remain laggard ?
Conference. The Conference of
the Methodist Episcopal Church,
which has been in session during
the past week, brought to the city a
large number of ministers of that
persuasion. According to custom,
invitations were given by the min
isters of the Presbyterian and Bap
tist churches for the visitors to fill
their pulpits, and consequently our
people have been favored with an
ecclesiastical treat.
The Edmton Street Methodist
church being considered rather
small to hold the audience antici
pated, Bishop Marvin delivered an
able sermon to a large concourse of
people at Metropolitan Hall on
Sunday, the 6th inst.
Postal. Cards. The new postal
cards soon to be issued by the de
partment will be much neater in
appearance than those now in use.
They will be nearly white, with a
narrower border, and will be print
ed in black ink. It is expected they
will be ready for delivery in Janua
ry, 1875.
