everybody pleasant about you, and

tivate good manners. Many boys
have pleasant manners lor company,
and ugly manners lor home.
We visited a small railroad town,
not long since, and were met at the
depot by a little boy of about eleven
or twelve years, who entertained
and cared lor us, in the absence of
his father, with as much polite at
tention and thoughtful care as the
most cultivated gentleman could
have done. We said to his mother;
oeiore we leu her home, i ou are
greatly blessed in your son, he is so
attentive and obliging.
"Yes,'' she saltl : VI can always
depend on Charley when his f At her
is absent, lie is a great help and
comfort to me." She said this as if
it did her heart goed to acknowl
edge the cleverness of her son.

are worth so much, that every lx.y
can have them. Children s Advocate.

While the Republican State Exe
cutive Committee was in session on
Wednesday, Sam. Gales, an old
colored man, over 80 years of age,
was begging on the streets because
there is no money in the County
Treasury to pay off tho miserable
pittance allowed by the County
Commissioners to keep the poor
from starving.
Another one legged colored man,
Geo. Laws, was hobbling about the
city begging some one to take an
order of $M' issued to him for three
months' support.

article presents the views of a large
number of the Republicans of the
county, and we will state as a fact
that the Committee of which Sher
iff Lee claims to be Chairman has
never been called together since the
close of the Convention campaian in
county, has said to Lazarus; that al
though he (Lazarus) is a beggar and
without friends, yet he, Dives, can
not give him even so much as $3.50
for his county order, because he has
mislaid, or lost, or squandered, or
speculated away all the people's
money, and there is nothing left,
not even a cent out of fifty thousand
dollars, to give to Lazarus to keep
him from starvation ; but that he,
Lazarus, can go, if he wishes to do
so, into father Abraham's bosom,
while he, Dives, will stay here
awhile and fare sumptuously every
day for some time longer and read
for his own enjoyment tho pleasant
writings of Moses and the prophets.
So Lazarus has to go away, it is
said, from the presence of Dives ;
but meeting with a Samaritan in
tho way, who takes compassion on
him, he tells his tale of sorrow, and
is relieved of his hunger and thirst
by the charity and compassion of
one of the men, who has already
paid tribute to Caesar for this very
As we have said Dives is the legal
Chairman of the poor man's party
in this county,, for we have the
highest legal evidence in the State
that such is the case, but Lazarus is
only a beggar and his name this
time is George Laws. lie too went
to Dives for some help, for the
County had said that out of the fifty
thousand dollars which the rich
man had collected, that he, a poor,
one-legged colored man, might have
nve oi it to keep him also a little
while longer out of the comforts of
father Abraham's bosom. But like
Sam Gales, so George Laws has laid
at the gates and been fain to eat of
the crumbs that fell from Dives'
table, and yet he received nothing,
but only grew weaker every day.
Yet another Samaritan chanced to
pass him by likewise, and he too
has been relieved of his sore dis
tress, and the pangs of hunger will
not oppress him for a short time to

appear the official proceedings, at
tested by the secretaries7 signatures,
headed " Convention of the People
of Wake County opposed to Con
vention." The Chair was author
ized to appoint an Executive Com
mittee of nine, charged with the
duty of filling vacancies which might
occur in the ticket. This duty, and
no other, is named. It does not ap-
pear mat said committee was
clothed with any power beyond this.
So, after the vacancy .occasioned by
the declination of Mr. Wynne had
been filled, by the appointment of
Gen. W. D. Jones, this committee
wiLs functus officio.
Mr. Badger, as Chairman of a
citizens'1 meeting, declared by the
Telegram a "failure" as a party
gathering, appointed T. F. Lee
Chairman of an Executive Commit
tee of nine to vacancies. Mr. B.
says he appointed the committee
pursuant to a resolution of the said
meeting of citizens. Why say "citi
zens', " if he recognized it as a Re
publican, Convention?
In the Telegram of July 9, 1871,
appears the notice of public speak
ing in Wake county, headed, "The
People's Canvass," and starting out
with "The People's (not the Repub
lican,) candidates." In arranging
with Mr. Snow, the then Chairman
of the Democratic-Conservative
Committee of the. county, this eo-
pleys canvass, by the"eofe's (anti-
convention j canaiuates," uapt. juee
first arrogated to himself the chair
manship of the Republican County
Executive Committee, his authority-coming
from the Chairman of a
citizens1 meeting, among whose
nominees was a Democrat.
The conclusion is, that there hav
ing been no Convention of the Re
publican party, as such, in 1871, the
appointment of the Committee made
in 1870 held good until 1872, when
another Committee should have
bepn appointed; but the county
Convention of that year having
failed to appoint, the old (Republi
can,, not citizens') Committee waa
continued till 1S73, when, through
wrong, and it has too much self
respect to fawn upon ! and Hatter
Maj. Smith or any other man in au
thority to his face, while It abuses
and traduces him behind his buck,
as does the Republican and those
who are engineering it. The Era
has never had cause to complain of
any but one act of Maj. Smith since
he has been a member of Congress,
and it had the manliness to speak
out its sentiments and not conceal
them from Maj. S. oraiy oneblse,
while the founder of the Republican
and its editors were as loud in their
condemnation of that; act as j the
most outspoken on thej subject,' but
now, hoping to ingratiate itself into
favor, it cm wis upon its belly, and
in the most sycophantic tones be
smatters and besmears the man
whom it despises and fears, with
most loathsome and disgusting llat debasing as to make the heart
sick. Well does Maj. Smith under
stand all this Irish blarney, and he
has an unmitigated contempt for
the men who are trying to gull him
with it.
