In looking over tbe list of members
elected to the legislature, we do not'findtht
names of many old iioliticians. Tbe Ai
sembly will be largely composed of new
'men.' We believe only three Conservativef
have been re-elected to the Senate, though
6oroe members of the la$t House have been
chosen as Senators, and the number ol
Commoners Who have been re-elected, is
not at all large, comparatively. Under
these circumstances,1 we caanot with con
fidence pretend to prognosticate whether
the Assembly will prove' an-able one or
otherwise; but we are satisfied it will be far
above mediocrity, - '
Our representation from Wake will be
highly creditable. In the Senate, Mr.
Charles Busbee will worthily represent pur
people. Though hot advanced in years,
he has rieenVclose fti udent and a working
man since his maturity. He will have but
fef peers and hardly- a superior in the new.
field of labor to which he has been called.
In the'IIoue, Messrs. Strong, Stevenson,
Whitley and Page are admirable represen
tatives of the Metropolitan county of the
State. The two latter are men of sound
. sense V and discrimination and will take
good care of the interests of their constit
uents Mr. Stevenson is in addition a very
good speaker and we ! do riot doubt will
prove an admirable debater, and we confi
dently expect that his course in the House
will enhance the esteem and respect with
which he is now regarded.
Col. Geo. V. Strong is better known than
yer! of long experience and great practice, he
has a reputation that makes his name fami
liar in every part of the State. He is a fine
orator, a "Laborious worker
and a true pat-
riot;" Wake could have chosen
representative. He entered actively into
thecanvais and by his extraordinary exer
tions made our old county! so .hot for tht

The Republic of Frauc&

a writer in the Fortnightly iRevietc,
is impossible, and he considers that
the impediments which stand in the
way1 of a durable French republic
are! threefold, which " he says, "I
classify in a progressive order of
magnitude: 1, politici.1, moraL
3, social. By the political impedi

distribution and composition of par

kinp, viz., that the transformation
of Jan. old State hitherto despotical

come. to the State Educational As
sociation July 8th, 1874.
Mr. President- and Gentlemen:
To me has been assigned the
pleasant task of welcoming you to
this convention. In doing so, I as
sure you that it gives me great -sat
isfaction to see and know, that the
people of North Carolina are wakin
up to, and feel the great import
ance of making an effort to, secure
the blessings of education to the
risiner veneration ' :throusrhout the
State.. 7 j; ' . r.;;'
As iirnorance is an element of
weaknesSj so knowledge is an ele
ment of great; strength. Ignor
ance is al blighfe- and a curse to any
people. It fetters the mind, dwarfs
the intellect, and debases the phy si
cal man It perverts his moral
ideas, weakens his faith in all that
is ennobling and good, and reduces
him whd was made in the image of
God to a level with the brute.
Education on the other ; hand,
takes liold of-youth with a friendly
and an affectionate grasp ; leads him
gently through the green pastures
and along the delightful paths of
knowledge; points put to him the
with a powerful lever to ; the
pinnacle f greatness and goodness;
fits him for all the duties of this
life, and'furnishes the means to pre
pare for a lull fruition of the life
which is to come
Our own beloved North Carolina
stands sadly in need of good schools
and educated men and women. She
never can rise to the position she
ought to occupy among her? sister
States until her people are furnish
ed with faculties for acquiring an
education. They must jbe trained
for the conflict of mind with mind-71
their intellectual strength must be
developed by proper. ' culture they
must be made to feel a confidence
in their mental powers and a pride
in the gifts of learning, before they
can, with any rational hope of suc
cess, enter the arena of life, where
heroic deeds are done. As well
might you expect the suckling babe
to contend with the giant, as that
the ignorant and unlearned could
cope with the learned and cultivated
in any of the avocations of life.
Knowledge is power and must tri-
umph in the end over ignorance.

Knowledge the wing, with which we
fly to heayen.,,

able and a noble work to perform,
and your piejence here to-day.
gives promise that you ,liave a will
to perform it Whenever men un
dertake a thing with a determina
tion to do it, they seldom fail; ob
stacles, 'which appear insurmounta
ble may rise up and make a faint
heart sick with despair, the horizon
may be obscured with overhanging
gloom, the mental vision mlay for a
while appear to be eclipsed, and
even the stoutest nerves may mo
mentarily tremble and grow weak,
and all be filled with doubt i nd un
certainty, but eventually the indom
itable will of the brave and heroic,
will overcome these obstacles and
surmounting them all, march proud
ly onward and upward to a -grand
final success. ' .( f ... j
Go on then, my countrymen, and
1 ccomplish the work you have uu
dertakeu. ' Encourage otherk to
buckle on their armor and come to
your help. Cry out with a loud
voice .gainst ignorance error auu ;
vice; proclaim lustily for education,
truth and virtue, and carry on your
crusa le until every city and. town,
every village and hamlet, and every
hill and valley in North Carolina
shall rejoice and be glatl because of
the esTobiishment of school houses
and churches, where the children of
the white and colored I in their own
separate buildings, may have oppor
tunities to cultivate their minds, and
to worship the eyerliving God ac
cording to the dictates of their own
consciences with none "to molest or
make-them afraid."! !
When you shall have accomplish
ed tjjus great and glorious Iwork,
you will: have achieved a victory
abundantly brilliant to satisfy the
most i inordinate ambition. Your
names and the memoiy of your good
deeds; will be enshrined within the
hearts of a people whom you have
"redeemed, regenerated and dtn
thralled." When your work is done
and you" can doff the habiliments of
this warfare and with approving
consciences, sit under your own
vines and fig trees, the, blessings of
a grateful people will be upon your
heads for a work so inauspiciously
begun,: so zealously ! prosecuted and
so. happily and successfully finished.

We presume that Gov. ;Holden is

Anxious to do something for the relief ol
creditors of the City, and to so shape the

Commissioners have had the subject under
consideration, and have enactKl the follow- j
ing Ordkiauce as the result of their labor.
Every tax' payer is interested in the fi
nance 1 welfare of the City, a much so as
the Commissioners, and I every one should
give their hearty co-operation to any meas
ure calculatetl to relieve the City from its
present emDarrassments. and place it on a
permanent and safe financial basis. We
therefore; appeal to our citizens who hold
City $cript and over-due Bonds, to come for
ward and exchange them for the new
Bonds authorized by this Ordinance.
Without the aid of the creditors ot the City
nothiug can be done, but ; with their assis
tance the City debt ean be so arranged, that
with judicious management in the future,
the interest can be paid every six months,
and the Bonds mtt at maturity. 5
We respectfully appeal to our citizens to
coiue forward aud aid us in carrying out
the provisions of this Ordinance which has
been passed in good faith I and with a siu-:
cere hope that it will meet; the views of the
public generally. 1
