Fourth Congressional District
A Convention of the Republi
can of tho Fourth Congressional
District will be held at Franklin
ton on Friday, the 12th day of June
next, for the purpose of nominat
ing a candidate to represent the
District in the next Congress, to
uppoint an Executive Committee
of one from each county for the
District, and to transact such other
business as the Convention may
deem for the best interest of the
Civil Rights and Social
The Republican party of North
Carolina are not in favor of, but
are opposed to the Civil Rights bill,
pending before Congress. The
white and colored Republicans of
this State, as a body, are opposed
to mixed schools, mixed churches
and miscegenation. There may
be a few individuals in the party,
as there are' in the Democratic par
ty, who favor these things, but
their number is insignificant and
merits but little consideration. Re
publicans of all colors are opposed
to the assertion of these rights not
only in theory but in practice; can
as much be 'said of the Democracy,
who are just now endeavouring to
raise a hue and cry in this State on
this subject to the injury of the Re
publican party? Can they point
to a single Republican of character
or influence1 in the State who advo
cates the doctrine either in theory
or practice? Not a single one!
What Republican of prominence
in the State, insists, or even says,
that the schools, churches and
all classes and all colors ?
that we have heard of either white
or colored. ' The Democracy know
this fact, but in politics they are
unscrupulous, and recklessly make
charges to mislead and deceive
those upon whom they can impose.
How does their practice comport
with their preaching? Here is an
instance of their sincerity ; look at
it, peopleof North Carolina, and
then say what confidence can you
place in Democratic professions.
In Windsor, Bertie county, there
are two hotels. One kept by a white
man named John II. Hall ; the
other by a colored man named
Madison Outlaw ; both very clever
and respectable citizens. Hall's
hotel is nearer the Court House than
Outlaw's. The following distin
guished Democratic gentlemen, (all
opposed in theory to civil rights
and social equality) are, and have
for a long time been, patrons of the
colored hotel keeper ; they sit down
to his table, and sleep in his beds,
and make themselves at home in
his house, to-wit: H. A. Gilliam,
Esq., a lawyer from Edenton,
Chowan county ; Hon. W. N. II.
Smith, a distinguished lawyer from
Raleigh, Wake county ; Col. Saml.
B. Spruill, a lawyer from Windsor,
Bertie county; Maj. John W.
Moore, a lawyer from Hertford
county; Jack Bond, a merchant,
and James Bond, a leading farmer
from Bertie county, besides many
other prominent Democrats who
might be named. We do not mean
to charge that any , cf these gentle
men are in favor of the Sumner
civil rights bill or of social equality.
What we object to and call to the
attention of the people i3 that the
political party to which these gen
tlemen belong, is continually
charging that the Republicans are
for social equality and Sumner's
civil rights bill, when the evidence
points to themselves as the ones

ability of the Hon. Jas. H. Headen,
of this county, . we cordially recom-
undergonp the process, to tho hand
of those who not only opposed it
when first attempted, b jt also denv
now that the ads are of any bind

long to a jparty in North Carolina
which at the present time depended
upon special legislation by Congress
to keep it from being in a minority.
While it is undeniable that in this
State there are many Democrats
who woidd resort to the same un
principled methods of dominating
that tiicyj employed three and lour
years agol, yet it is not probablethat
they willjattempt it. The real eon
servativejsentiment of the people is
strong, and that sentiment is as
much opposed to the extremes of
the Ku llux Democracy, as to the

and restore it to its proper relation
to the other States of the Federal

by tho action of the) slaveholding

of the obstacles that had hitherto

To the Editor of the Era:
I am not a lawyer, but a plain
country farmer, and a Democrat at
that. I work hard to make a liv
ing, and try to make enough on my
little farm to support my family,
pay my taxes, and make both ends
meet at the close of the year. In
order to do this, I try to make and
save all I can. I take the Raleigh
jVe.cs. and upon an examination of
the prices current as contained in it,
I found that corn was quoted at
$1.50 by the wholesale, while it is
selling here at 90 cents. It costs
about 21 cents per bushel to send
corn from our depot to Raleigh.
Thus I found that by sending my
corn to Raleigh it would stand me
$1.11 per bushel, and if I could get
$1.00, there I would make 39 cents
more per bushel than I can get at
home, or $39.00 more on a hundred
bushels. I had about 100 bushels of
corn 'to spare, and by selling it for
$1.00, sixty cents more than I could
get at home, the surplus would more
than nay mv taxes, which amount
ed to something over 533.00.
I felt happy prepared my corn
and sent it to Raleigh and gbt a re

Southern Republicans to Congress.
The opposition to the Republican
party in the South is now reduced
to its last and lowest condition. It
cannot raise a single issue to contest
on the field of politics. It only seek3
to gain an ascendancy by appealing
to the! lowest and basest passions of
humah nature ; to fan into life the
d3Ting embers of passion, and to ex
cite race prejudices. We do not need
to ask; aid from Congress, and if we
fail, we fail because of our unworthi
ness or that of our leaders.
Butithere are some things which
our brethren of the North cannot
understand. They have to some
extent, caught up the cry of our ene
mies here, and pronounce the present
condition of some of the southern
States' as the effect of "carpet bag"
misriife. South Carolina, Arkansas
and Louisiana are tho bugbears with

Please accept my sincere thanks

Convention was conveyed by you.

V Party for White and Black.
It is a little singular that tho de
mocrats cannot think ofsomething
else to run the campaign on than
their war cry of 1808. Theirs is the
white man's party, is it? if this
was so, the question might be ajked
how North Carolina, with its large
white majority, has an Executive
elected by the Republican party. It
is a most absurd trick, and one
which only will catch gulls. The
democrats may all bo whiU. but jiIL.
remember their frantic elforts in
1870 and 1S72, to get colored votes.
The Republican party has some
thing more to commend it to the
people of this country than the im
possibillity of any but awhile man to
stand on its platform. It offers riht
and justice to all. It has raised the
oppressed of both races in thcSouth.
The poor whites, before the Repub
lican party obtained an ascendancy
in the South, were the serfs of the
slave oligarchy. Ignorant ami des
pised by the dominant class, this life
was but little better than that of the
slaves. The Republican party took
these men by the hand, it elevated
them from their despised condition
and made them the peers of those
who exercised almost feudal pri-
vi leges over them. Those men are
beginning to recognize this great
fact. They are learning that they,
too, have been emancipated from
thraldom ; and everywhere the
Republican principles have pene
trated, they are most devoted iu
their attachment to. the party. Wit,
At the Plymouth Convention the
motion to make the nomination of
lion. C. L. Cobb unanimous was
made by O. F. Gilbert, the most ac
tive working friend of Aug. M.
Moore, Esq., and it was seconded
by J. Q. A. Wood, an earnest sup-.
porter of Col. Lindsey. If there is
any consolation in these facts to
those Democrats who predicted i
split and a row in tho Republican
party on the Congressional nomina
tion, let them enjoy it at their leis

some misunderstanding about the
Convention of the Republicans of

were only partly distributed, and

leering a'strreatiic'tirrrn herns possible
of facts and comparing them, that a
correct theory can be formed. Why
is South Carolina plundered? The
answer of the democrats is because
she is under Radical rule. This is
unsound logic. Because to be good,
it first must be demonstrated that
all States under Radical ruie are
It may be asserted without con
tradiction that in any State of this
Union, where the most intelligent
people are opposed to the laws and
government under which they live,
that in such a State, a class more
ignorant than tiie most intelligent
will b called ou to administer the
government. Unless the most in
telligent ehss can subvert the exist
ing laws, in South Carolina, it
steadily refuses to attempt a refor
mation, by the obvious method of
placing itself in sympathy and har
mony! with those laws.
