WltMtXaTOX AS A COTTOX MARKET.
We take pleasure in laying before our . rea
ders, the following, in regard to JWilnilng
tau, as a cotton market, taken from the Star,
of lliat city. It is always a pleasure to hear
of the prosperity of our own cities, and we
shall be glad to see the ciiy come, when both
Wilmington and Newborn, - shall become
, places of interest to thb farming portion of
our entire State. j
Tho receipts of cotton at this port for tlie
year ending Sept. 1st, IS09, amounted to
about 37,000 bales for year ending Sept. 1st,
1S70, 47,855 bales ; and for'year ending Sept.
1st, 1871, 02,100 bales. This is a most grati
fying exhibit, and shows a steady! increase
in our cotton' trade notwithstanding the
cut-throat system of through freights. In
deed, for the cotton year just closed, our
per centageof increase has, been greater
than that of New Orleaua,Sayannah,Mobile,
Charleston or Galveston, all of which outi
rank Wilmington as cotton ports.' v
The high prices obtained for cotton here,
the fair dealing and libcralty of onr 00m-
- mission xnerchantt, and the low; prices of
groceries, hardware and dry goods in this
market, liave all contributed to this un
doubted evidence of our progress.' ... , ; .
Free Fioht. Tlie Tarboro Southerner
has got its bristles up, and defies the wire-
workers in its own party. Wo admire pluck.
But thertia- no into . in kicking, against the
. . i y- .
new Liemocrauc paper, yonsuit uut.
Clark, and let's hear what he says. - But,
the Southerner is entitled to a hearing: . :
"It Is simply ridiculous to see the attempt
now being . matie to create dissensions ue
tween the old lino Whigs and Democrats in
th State. We are Democratic , to tho back
hone, and desire to tight in the next Presi
dential election 'under a souare out Demo
cratic liaar, but we do not intend to be led
Into the "trao now being set by men who
nAvpr voted a Democratic ticket in their
lives, but who now profess to be the only
:innn Dur Democitcy. 1 - -
At tne proper timo we shall expose the
wholo rln 11 cr. In tho meantime we advise
all good Democrats to shun tho entire move
ment, especially the support or encourage
ment of a so-called Democratic organ at
Ilalcigh, until the same is sanctioned by
suchlifo long Democrats as Gov. Bragg,
Judge Howard and the like." !
Let Evans ask 'kjc a fkw Questions !
The Ilillsboro Recorder, ot the 11th inxU,
contains the following questions : .
; A QrEsTioy. Have we led you wrong f
Ilavewe advised you. wrong? Didn't we
toll vou so f Think of the time when the
Ku Klux" were a "glorious thing ! ' When
even our biggest men were breathless t
And when some of your best men looked
tlie devil at ns for daring to denounce them
and warn them of their course. Yea ! when
even our life was publicly, threatened for
it? Were we right? Did we predict ngnt
what it would load to? Say ! Now be-
riftve us we were sincere in what we wrote.
We wrote for your welfare, not for the good
nfnr nurse and ame. 1 We knew the end
vnnld nrove us risrht. It has done it. i You
mil Ad us a radical. Said we were paid. We
cared not. Our conscience told us we .were
right td let bell and its angels oppose us
we intended to go ahead. And we went.
Didn't we? Has the result iusttned our.
course?. Yea,, verily. ? Then in the next
crisia believe n sincere when wo advise
vou and titrht the issues. Believe that we
are strong Southern aa yourselves, I yea,
have lost more blood than many of the car
casses that assailed u contain. Believe
this. And never again be so . rash as to
abuse a man simply; because he is cool in
his speech while you are red hot and a heatr
ing.' . .
What they say ix Wilmington op a
RAI.EIOH Man. The Wilmington Journal
says of Rev. R. II. Whitaker, of this city;
-Rev. ! Mr.. Whitaker, of the Friend of
Temperance, delivered, as advertised, an
address upon Temperance, last night. ' He
has a rich, sonorous voice, and his effort
was a success. His admirable argument,'
seasoned with spicy anecdotes, made a deep
impression, and tho seed he has sown will
doubtless hereafter bear fruit in some who-
have been heretofore indifferent, or scoffers
of tho can3e'of which ho is an eloquent ad
vocate, j. 1 .
TheS5arof the same, city says:
lecture I of Rev. R. 11. Whitaker. of the
Friend of Temperance, delivered at "Eclec
tic Hair' last night, is spoken or by all we
have heard express an opinion on the sub
ject as an able effort, and ono calculated to
havo its effect In tlie community. The aud-
ience was quite largo considering the ex
treme inclemency of the weather. Mr.
.Whitaker is an able advocate of tlie .cause
of temperance and is devoting his timo and
talents to its advancement in our State.'
Animadverts. The Sentinel of tho 12th
threatens to "animadvert" upon the pro
ceedings of the Federal Court in this city,
if its proceedings do not go on as that pure
and spotless sheet deems right and proper.
This is a heavy, threat and well calculated
to mako the Judges circumspect (very" in
their official . demeanor, and to frighten
Marshal Carrow from the straight path of
dtity. . I ' . . - .'.
Tliat paragon of truth asserts that the
trials to come off, "are simply political
prosecutions, made to fit the machinery of
thb radical amendments,1" fcc If the Sentinel
by this, means to admit that the Ku Klux
Klan is a political organization, which we
charge, then that paper is at uberty to
amend its cliarge by striking out tho word
'prosecutions," and inserting in lieu there
of, the word persecutions, which, we doubt
not, was intended in tne original lexu vna
then, the next important threat, comes that
the Sentinel "nurDoees renortinfiC ? them as
fully as our (its) space will permit," with
its particular attention added. This is
heavy; and the voice of the Sentinel, like
the huntsman's horn, is to bo beard in the
camps and tents of the Ku Klux, who will
be governed by the many hints thrown out,
and tlie sago suggestions of one who avers,
that he never belonged to any secret society.

The Recent Stabbing Affair in Wil
mington. The parties to this unfortunate
occurrence being known to our city readers,
and to a large number of our Eastern read
ers, we copy the following detailed particu
lars from the Star of the 13th insL
" W alluded verv briefly in our ilast to
an unfortunate difficulty that occurred near
the corner of Fourth and Castle streets at
lato hour on Monday night last,- during
which Mr. Robert Costm was dangerously
stabbed in the head by Mr.! W. H. James,
both young men belonging in this city.
After the wounded man was taken' hpme,
the knife; which had not been previously
removed by Dr. King from prudential mo
tives.'was with much difficulty, withdrawn.
the blade having penetrated the left side of
his head, above the temple.' to Its' entire
length, which was about three inches, and
eoiner for some distance into the brain.
Since that time life has been! speechless and
unconscious. - . ;
Yesterday Mr. James was arraigned ' bo-. 1
fore Justice Cantwell for a prelimuiaryj ox-
amination, which resulted in his being reg
ularly committed for trial at uie next term
of the Superior Courts which, meets in this
city on the 1st Monday in- December next.
An application for bail was refused by Jus
tice Cantwell. and the prisoner- was there-
yi ' th r .mifrnfT' inn com
mitted to jail.' L . ! 1;
It may be proper "to remark 'that, tho
Court, under the evidence of Dr. 5. Francis
King to the eGect tliat there wa3 nttie or no
possibility that the wounded man could
recover, acted npon the hypothesis that; he
was alrenrf dead. t a ' ' - I"1
Wo had intended to give the evidence In
full in our paper this morning, but for pru
dential reasons we forliear to do so at pres
ent. j j- " r: ;; -
The defence was ably conducted by A. T.
London. Esa. MnCh interest was 1 liiani-
fested in the proceedings, which occupied a
a political iaste, and not one Democrat be-
insr amohar tho number. This is animad-

pointless. .''We care nothing , of the politics
of a juror1 if ho is an. honest man and by
this iuclud.ed tho qualification : and not a
"member of tho Ku Klux Klan or any other
secret society known to be opposed to the
government of the U. S. It is not our pur
pose to comment on tho Grand Jury or the
Petit Jury every member of both having
taken . and subscribed to an oath ; which
leads us to believe that they arc worthy

us to the contrary, wo cannot and will not

Mr. Turner siezea every occasion to pro-
tost his own loyalty, and to declare his own
purity of political morals. Those who cry
loudest "thief ! thief!" aro not always above
suspicion ; and we should regret very much
for anything to transpire by which tho fair
name of the Honorable gentleman should
be brought jinto disrepute. A grain of tem
porizing, unuer certain circumstances, we
would respectfully suggest, would prove a
precaution, well conceived. The united
States of America is holding court iii this
city, and while every, man has a right to

ernment, to a cer&iu extent, the laws of the
nation will not be allowed to b brought

FACTS AND ARGUMENTS.
There are writers and speakers who
seem to think there are no such things
as facts and arguments t They do not
cont ro vert, they object and 'denounce.
They donot reason, for their thoughts
are the guste of passion, and there is no
reason in tHem. The people listen to
them, or read what they say, but they
are neither instructed nor edified there-?
been that of
dance ol secession
passion ana vengeance
from the ficst; It was .conceived in
passion conducted in passsion, and its
end is not yet. Objection and hatred
to the Union in 1860 have; given- place
to similar objections and similar hatred
to the reconstruction acts jin 1871. As
these passionate people -sought to de
stroy the Government in 18C1, so they Ene
seek to embarrass and cripple it now, I ; fj
by opposing the; measures deemed ne
cessary to give peace to! the country.
They offer no reason ror tnis opposition.
They point out no defects in the mea
sures.! liut i they invoke prejudice :
they denounce ; they threaten ; they"
impeach ther motives and the character
of their opponents, and fill the air with
their bedlam cries of "carpet-bagger,"
"scallawag" "thief," ! "knave " "nig-
ger-worshipper," and the like. Is this
the entainment to which men or sense
am invited? .! 1 ":x 1,
The people-see through all this and
judget accordingly. They are tired of
Buch strife. They want deliverance
from passionate newspapers and pas
sionate public! mem They would hear
some reason; but they, are not likely to
get them from the source referred to.' k-
It w greatly; to the credit 01 the lle-
publican party that it does not attempt
thus to force its principles and opinions
on the people ! Its reliance is on facts
and arguments. It gives reasons for
what it asks the people . to do, and it
does (this temperately and moderately,
so asi no to irritate those whom it would
convince. "The 1 Secessionists of 18C0
knew nothing of this lesson, and the Ku
Klux Democracy will never Jearn it.
