The return of this day, so mem
orable among the Christian nations
of the earth, is calculated to inspire
many of us with mingled feelingsof
joy and sadness. When wo reflect
upon the bountiful mercies of God,
the praises of our hearts should
be pourf-d out to II 1m that he
Iuh so abundantly vouchsafed to
the continuance of civil and re-li-
ious freedom as a people; and
that, as individuals, he has sheltered j
and ours from the pangs of dis
use and affliction.
The loss, to many, of dear friends,
who one year ago, perhaps, mingled
with us amid scenes of festivity, is
calculated to cause deep and melan
choly reflections. It is for us, how
ever, while swlly deploring any
misfortune with which in the provi
diMiceofGod we have been visited to
bow in humble submission to the
divine will, and while the heart
may be temporarily depressed we
should hear up in a philosophical
manner, and make the best of the
M)tir.s of innocent enjoyments
which the season affords.
in accordance with an old and
honoivd precedent, newspaper men
claim a short respite from labor at
this season. The employees of the
r.ra do not intend to make any in
novation upon this custom, and we
thinfore take this occasion to an
nounce to our friends and the public
generally, that the nextlssueof this
paper will be dated Thursday, Jan
uary 7th, I87t".
It is but proper that we should
return our thanks to the many
friends who have encouraged and
sustained us in the past, and to as
sure them that we will commence
the new year with a determination
to leave nothing honorable undone,
calculated to promote the interests
both of the Republican party and
the State at large.
The Legislature.
This body has adjourned to meet
again n Monday, the 18th of Jan
uary, 17-. We regret to say that
no measures of any real benefit to
the people of the State have, up to
this time, been perfected. We are
aware that much time is necessary
for the arrangement and proper
consideration of matters pertaining
to legislation, but the present ses
sion seems to have been frittered
aw ay with unusual inactivity. There
appears to have been a want of de
cision on the part of the majority, as
to the wants ol the people, which is
almost inexcusable in men fresh
from their constituents. Republi
cans, being in a hopeless minority
for any practical purposes, of course
cannot be held responsible for the
time and money thusspent without
any commensurate results.
The people of North Carolina ex
pect something more of their repre
sentatives than mere claptraps for
perpetuation of party, such as bills
for taxing dogs, requiring poll tax
receipts, and re-establishing whipping-posts,
all of which any unpre
judiced man can readily discover
are directed against a certain class
of our voting population.
We hope that the members will
carefully canvass the wants of their
Ieople during the recess, and on
their return to the Capital address
themselves with earnestness to the
adoption of such means as w ill re
dound to the credit of our entire
people regardless of partizan con
siderations. In the meantime, we
wish all a safe return to their homes
and a happy enjoyment of the sea
son. .
North Carolina Journal of
Education. We ha vo recei ved
the first number of this valuable
magazine published in this, city by
Col. S. D. Pool. It is chiefly de
voted to tho Interests of common
school education, and . its general
literary style and the character of
its essays should render it a wel
come visitor to all reading.'classes.
Numbering among its contributors
some of the best talent of the State,
and devoted to so noble a cause, it
entitled to a widespread circula
tion, and every North Carolinian
should feci an interest in I ts'euccess.
Hon. W. A- Smith.
We will endeavor to lay before
our readers, in the next issue, a bill
introduced by this gentleman in the
House of Representatives proposing
a compromise of the debts of the
Southern States. It provides that
the money collected as tax on cotton
shall be appropriated to Dav such
mm M, '
debts, and the Secretary of the Treas
ury and Attorney General are di
rected to confer with the creditors
on the subject. The bill further
provides that, if the amount of tax
is insufficient to pay off the entire
indebtedness, it is to be applied to
the payment of the oldest debts as
far as it will go. Should there be
any surplus it shall be applied to
free school purposes.
This proposition seems to be just
and proper in every particular, and
it is to be hoped that Congress will
give it merited attention. Major
Smith deserves the sincere thanks
of our people for this effort to relieve
theSouthern States of their financial
embarrassments.
Conference.
We notice that a conference of the
leading Republicans of Virginia is
talked of during the present month,
to take into consideration the status
of the party in that State and to lay
down some general plan of action
for future guidance.
We heartily concur in the action
thus taken by our Virginia friends,
and recommend a similar course to
be adopted in North Carolina. If
we expect to carry to a successful
termination the great issues which
will come before the people at no
distant day, it is eminently wise
that we should begin to understand
each other. That there are differ
ences to be healed, and even per
sonal animosities and feelings of
en vy to be 6vercome, is, we are sorry
to say, true. It is obvious that,
with anything like a want of unity
in our ranks, we can scarcely hope
to regain our lost position in the
State. We must sacrifice personal
preferment to the public good. We
cannot longer tolerate faction. There
is no use in disguising the fact,
that much of our misfortune is due
to over ambitious men in our ranks.
We must in tho future lose sight of
men and devote all of our energies
to the essential principles of the
party. Men count nothing, only so
far as they represent principles ; and
he who casts himself in the way for
his own personal advancement is no
i friend to our cause, and the sooner
we get rid of such the sooner will
' we witness the return of that success
j to which the past history and pres
j ent national character of our party
i entitle us.
j We think, therefore, that an early
consultation of the leading members
J of tho Republican party at such
' time and under such circumstances
as can be agreed upon by a prelim
i inary meeting of the State Execu
! tive Committee and others of dis
tinguished prominence, would do
much to infuse renewed vigor among
the masses of the Republican party
and would go far towards reinstat
ing the confidence which seems to
have been somewhat impaired by
our late losses.
We hope our leading men will
think over these things during the
holidays, and on the return of the
Legislature, let each man be ready
to contribute his advice as to .the
best course to be pursued under the
circumstances. We especially com
mend the matter to our State Ex
ecutive Committee, in the hope that
such action will be suggested on
their part as may be productive of
the most good. Of one fact there
can be no diversity of opinion, and
that is, the Republican party must
gird up in solid column or lose the
State in the great fight Of 1876.
Writh a united front, we can hardly
fail of success, but with personal
bickerings and prejudices, it will be
