Conservative party may swear, that
from the ranks of the colored Re
publicans they will never receive
any support; and in' the second
place, that they are not going to do
anything or demand - anything,
which will drive from acting with
them the thousands of white Re-
barealized as it was told from man publicans who believe' the princi-
Dcath of Hon. Sion II. Kogers.
The sudden death of the Hon.
Sion II. Rogers this (Friday) morn-
to man upon their rising, and cast
a gloom over the entire communi
ty! Such a shock has not come
upon our citizens in years; for yes

apparently well, and promising to

his friends.

So if the Conservative leaders live
in the hope that anything will be
done to help them change every
white man in the State to a Ku
Kluz, they will die disappointed.

CORRESPONDENCE.
been permitted to fall into the
hands of unscrupulous persons, who
use its administration for their own
selfish ends. They manipulate the
primary meetings in such a manner
as drove from them the true men of
the party, who neither wanted nor
sought office, and acted really In all
things as if the party was establish
ed and kept up for their individual
benefit. Men were put forward for
positions totally unfit to fill them,
and the party told they must vote
for them, because they were the regit
lar nominees. The rankandfileOfthe
party have refused to be thus dictat
ed to by a few men, and it becomes
our duty to take a new departure,
and return to the practices xf the
party in years gone by, so that
every one shall have a voice in ad
ministration of the affairs of the
party they are called on to support.
The principles governing the ac
tion of the Republican party, are
national in their application! and
are the only principles upon which
this government can bo adminis
tered, and preserve its Republican
form.
Our opponents have only one feel
ing in common, and that is a bitter
and unreasonable hostility to the
present administration. They have
had the Legislative department of
the State government since 1870,
and what have they done? Inca
pable legislators, they have spent
their sesions in passing laws for
particular friends, or by puerile
evasions have attempted to defeat
in divers manners, the written pro
visions of the Constitution of the
State. In short, during: the whole
of their legislative career, they have
spent three fourths of the time in
" shooting at sparrows," as has been
well said by a member of their par
ty. Will they do better the coming
session ? By no means; and it only
rests with the Republican party to
take advantage of the many short
comings of their opponents, to re
trieve our losses and carry the State
by 10,000 in 1876. Like the old
Whig party in its last days, the on
ly active vital principle that held it
together was opposition to the ad
ministration, and upon the current
liiestions of governmental policy,
its representative men differed as
widely from each other as they did
from the old Democrats, or as do
the present Conservatives from the
Republicans.
The Republicans in Congress will
find out that the colored people of
the South do not desire the passage
of the "civil rights bill" if it is to
engender a feeling of hostility be
tween them and their white neigh
l)ors and friends. However erro
neoas may be the feeling that the
bill seeks to legislate' social equality
upon our system, still that feeling
exists, and is intensified by the
many misrepresentations of the op
position press and speakers the
penny-a-liners and cross roads states
men whose eloquence on the effects
of the bill will never more bear the
same fruits, as the peculiar state of
the public mind permitted it to
bear in the -recent canvass. The
many intelligent colored Republi
cans in the State can easily, by tem
perate action and prudent resolves,
correct the false impression that
swept the State in the last election,
as to their real wants and status
ed ridicule of the aristocratic element
of the old Whig party. It is hard
ly possible that he will be much
affected by what may be said or
thought of him by those who adopt
the most objectionable doctrines of
that party, and who advocate them
with little of the ability known to
its members of former days.
Of the people, and knowing their
wants, Gov. Brogden has ever been
In favor of that policy in the admin

Hil lsboro Recorder: A good lady

for credit to the amount of the pur

The Salisbury Watch?nan says: It
is gratifying to note the high stand
that North Carolina boys take
abroad. Whether as farmers, teach
ers, orators, or what not, they al
ways deport themselves with be

selves the equals of those of any
other section or State. We notice
that Prof. J. N. II. Summerell, A.
.ts., is lecturing witn success in
Texas: that Frank Brown is mak
ing speeches to the Grangers in
Mississippi, and Frank B. Craige is
raising cotton, corn and fine stock

they generally make their mark.

this instance for Salisbury.

At ten o'clock, on tho morning of

at the foot of tho table, holding In
his hand manuscript notes, from

at once gavo up work. On reaching
home he was not considered dan
gerously ill until Saturday cvenirjg,
when ho suffered a stroke of par
alysis and became unconscious. On

to recognize his children and re
ceive the holy communion, but

til his death, which occurred at.)

The opinion of the Attorney Gen
eral is that the United States has
exclusive jurisdiction over cemete
ries, and concludes, 44 but if as
is usually the case the State In mak
ing the cession, or in giving its con
sent to the purchase reserved tho
right to serve and execute the pro
cess upon the land , or any other
like condition, it has been held that
the acceptance of a cession with this
reservation amounts to an agree
ment on the part of the United
States to permit the free exercise of
such process as being quid hoc its
own process, and upon any other
construction the cession wouhl be
nugatory and void."
The following interesting particu
lars of the'r escape of Marshal Ba
zaine from his prison on the Isle of
St. Marguerite, has been received :
The apartment occupied by Marsh
al Bazalne opened upon a terrace
which was j built upon a lofty and
precipitous; cliff joverhanglng the
sea. The sentry was posted on the
terrace with orders to watch the
prisoner's every movement. Sunday
evening the Marshal walked upon
the terrace with Col. Vilctte, his
aid-de-camp : at ten o'clock he re
tired as usual, apparently to sleep,
but before daybreak he had effected
his escape, f le must have crossed
tho terrace in the dead of night, and
eluding the sentinel on tho edge of
the precipice, thence by means of a
knotted rope -he I descended to the ,
sea. He evidently .slipped i during
the descent and tore his hands, as
spots wero found stained with blood
in several places under the ciirr. in
the head of the boat were Bazalne's -wife
and cousin : they received him
as he reached the water, and Mad
am La Marchale- taking tho oars
herself, rowed directly to a strange
steamer, which had been lying off
the Island since the previous eve
ning. They reached tho vessel In
safety, were taken on board and the
steamerlithen put to sea. It is
thought that they have landed at
Geneva, as the steamer . proceeded
in that direction. Tho first news of
the aflair came to Grasse. the near
est place on the coast, and the Mag
istrates oft the town -immediately
sent officers, in every direction to
search for the fugitive. There was
great commotion in Marsalllcs when
the facts became known, ah in
vestieration wras ? opened, and Col.
Villette, who was walking with tho
Marshal on the evening of-his es
cape, was discovered there and im
prisoned. The commandant of the
fort of St. ! Marguerite was placed
under arrest, and Gen. Lewville has
