Keep ?thk Ball Moving. Since the
first day.of. 1872, there hav "peea several
Republican meetings in the different conn-
ties. Such assemblages are evidence; of the
activity and strength of the party. We are
glad to see the .Republicans organising so
early. Heretofore we hare been tardy..
Onr State Conventions have been held 'too
near the day of election. This year the
Convention is to be held on TNTeondsdat,
the 17th day of April. This will leave three
months for a thorough, offensive, botd de
termined, and decisive canvass. The can
didates for the Executive offices will be
enabled to canvass every county.- The can
didate for Governor should visit every coun
ty. The Republicans have all to gain and
nothing to lose by a canvass as thorough
as time and money will allow them to make.
So far as we are concerned, we are going to
win. We shall pot think of defeat. Victory
is in our grasp. ; The people are with; us.
I A bold attack upon the entire works t the
Ku Klux Democracy, and the day is ours.
From now until sundown of the arBtTues
day of November next, the Republican par
ti' expect every member of the partyy and
every man who values th&peace of the Na
tion, to do his whole duty. There must be
no faltering- No compromising with ths
enemy. . ..... - " ' ! '
We expect of the State Convention, of the
Congressional Conventions, of the Conven
tions to nominate candidates for the Gener
al Assembly and county officers, the nomi
nation of unexceptionable men. None but
true Republicans. Men against whose in
tegrity nothing1 can be said. The nomina
tion of men of this character is absolutely
necessary to success. When such nomina
tions shall have been made, it will be an
easy matter to arouse the people by a thor
ough canvass, and get out a full vote. j j I
The State campaign and also the J cam
paign .for President and Vice-President,
will commence in earnest immediately af
ter the adjournment of the State Conven
tion. Meetings must be held hi the differ
ent counties to elect delegates to attend the
State Convention. The County Executive
Committees should be revised. A list con
taining the name and Post-office of the
Chairman and each member of the Com
mittee, should be forwarded to the Secreta
ry of the State Executive Committee at as
early a day as possible. The Township
Committees should be revised and a
list containing the name and Post-office of
each member, should be forwarded to the
Secretary of the State Com it tee. What coun

A Southern Repuhlican on Presi
dent Grant. We have been shown a let-?
ter from a gentleman in Tennessee, In
which it is stated that in his locality not a
single newspaper has published the Presi
dent's message, and that all the local organs
are filled with reckless and bitter denun
ciation of the irovernment or the union ana
of the loyal men of the nation. . In case of
the election of a Democratic President next
year, this gentleman declares that no loyal
man could remain in Tennessee. . The re
election of General . Grant will have twice
the influence in crushi mar what is left or tne
old rebellion than the election of any other
man In the Republican pariy wouia nave.
So speak loyal men from all parts of the
South. It will be considered a great calam
ity to change standard-bearers at the pres
ent day. General Grant has now learned
the situation fully, and knows exactly what
is wanting to restore peace to the distracted
South. While he is thus on the right tracK
of pacification, it will be the most foolish
thing in the wona io iaKe idb warn uui
his hands and rive it to another, who ! will
have to study the situation afresh from its
original elements. Washington Chronicle.
The Chronicle has stated the truth, i The
peace and quiet of the Southern States de-:
mands the re-nomination and re-eleetion of.J
President Grant. But for the vigorous
prosecution of the ku klux by the National
Goverament, there would be no free eieo-
tion in this State In August and Noyember
next, i Mi
It must be remembered that a premium
Is offered for ku kluxing. If the bill In
troduced by the Senator from Orange,! be
comes a law, it will be a precedent for fu
ture Legislatures to extend amnesty; to
murderers and villians who may have ren
dered their party service by murdering and
outraging their opponents. . The endorse
ment of crhne by a Democratic Legislature
and the failure to re-nomlnate President
Grant, would infuse new life into the feeble
and expiring corpse of the ku Kiux.tjAs
tee have said before, the peace of the South-
ern States demands the re-election of Pres-

Wilmington, Charlotte, and Ruth
erford Railroad. The contract for the
completion of that portion of this road
which lies between Wadesboro' and Char
lotte, has been awarded Mr. Robert Har
vey, a former contractor of the road. The
terms are said to be , very favorable. .The
contract does no go. into effect unless the
bill now before the House of Representa
tives becomes a law. If the bill should
pais the House, and thereby become a law,
the Company will be enabled to make a
new issue of bonds, and to use its capital
stock to raise the' means to complete the
road. ' -
The completion of this road to Charlotte
and on to the Tennessee line, would open
up a very valuable portion of the State. It
would infuse new energy into the people
all along the line of the road. We should
like to boo the work commenced on both
divisions of tho road at the same time.
There la but little grading to be done be
tween Cherryville and Rutherfordton. If
it Is possible, we earnestly hope the officers
of the Company will bestow a sufficient
amount of the funds of the Company on the
Western division of the road, to complete
it to Rutherfordton. The counties west of
Charlotte would be greatly-benefitted by
the completion of the road to Ratherford
ton. Idleness which has begotten, in many
Instances ku kluxing, would vanish. The
people would have a market for their pro
duce. Their attention would be drawn te
accumulating property and lo the rebuild
ing of their fortunes so terribly broken and
shattered by the rebellion. If the funds
can be commanded, this road can be com
pleted to tho Tennessee line by the first day
of January, 1874. When so completed it
will be one of the best if not the best pay
ing road in. the" State.
We are informed that it is proposed by
the Committee on Internal Improvements
of the House of Representatives, to amend
the bill as it came from the Senate so as to
give the State three thousand shares in the
road. It is hoped this amendment will
meet the approval of the majority, and that
th hill will sneedilv nass the House, We
presume the Senate will concur in the
amendment. If It does, that ; makes the
bill a law.
P. S. Since the above was written, the
bill in question passed the House on Thurs
day last. The amendment giving the State
three thousand shares does, not go ; into
effect until the road is completed to Char
lotte. President Martin ! let us have the
road to Charlotte and on to the Tennessee
line at the earliest day possible.
A Startling Rumor A Silver Mine
in Madison Countt. The Asheville Pio
neer says, for several days there has been
a secret afloat among a few of the " confiden
tial and knowing one" which was general
ly communicated in an impressive under
tone, of which the following is the substance :
A woman .who resides near the Warm
Springs, in Madison county, has made sev
eral trips to this town to interview Mr.
Ephriam Clayton and son, who own land in
that vicinity, On each of these several occas
ions she has communicated the marvelous
fact to these gentlemen that there is a silver
mine on their premises. , Her story is that
this mine was surreptitiously worked by a
former citizen of this town, a Frenchman
named Cochee, ,who, in company with a
stranger and the narrator,' would visit the
mine, get out the ore, and taking it to a cave,
would there coin It. She further states that
they were generally engaged at this from
one to two weeks, and that they made two
or three trips during the year to this mine.
This woman says the men paid her 100 per
annum to keep their secret, and that not-
withstanding the fact that Cochee died ten
or twelve years before the breaking out of
the war, she received her siuo pusu money
up to that time.
A Legislator Shot. A dispatch from
Columbia, S. C, dated Jan. 23, says a per
sonal rencontre occurred in that city, near
the State House, shortly before noon, aris
ing out of the troubled state of South Caro
lina politics and misgovern men t. The affray
originated between Mr. By as, a colored
member of the State Legislature, and B. W.
Tomlinson, the correspondent In that city of
The Charleston News. Byas, it appears, was
incensed at some strictures lately made in
The New by the correspondent, and meet
ing him this morning at the State House
some altercation followed, and Byas at
tempted to cowhide Tomlinson. Tomlin
son almost immediately retreated a step or
two, and, drawing a revolver, aimed and
fired at Byas. The latter threw up his hands
and staggered, then fell. Some persons who
witnessed the shooting at once took charge
of the wounded 'legislator, and physicians
who were summoned give it as their opin
ion thit the wound will 'prove' fatal ; some
say that his recovery is Impossible. Tom
linson surrendered himself to the Sheriff of
. . . - custody.

Important to PuBLisHERs.--By a re
cent decision of the "Post-office Depart
ment, the law regarding sending; newspa
pers by mail has been more clearly defined.
No name or memorandum can be made on
a newspaper inside of the wrapper on which
the address is written. It is : barely per
missible to mark an article with a pen or
pencil. More than this ; subjects the paper
to letter postage, and the violator of the law
to fine. No printed card, handbill, or ad
vertisement, no written notice, letter or slip
of any kind whatsoever, must be folded
in the paper. To do any of these things Is
to violate the law. Printed slips pasted on
the outside or folded in , papers or periodi
cals, soliciting notices, are also violations of
the law. Senders of, transient papers can
send bundles of printed matter by weight,
at transient postage, but must not send any
written matter in such bundles. Publishers
especially, will io well to observe carefully
these facts. It will save them both trouble
and expense in these days of investigation
and reform. i
Cuban Struggle for Independence.
Hopeless as the struggle of the Cubans for
independence appears to be, there are many
Cuban sympathizers in this country and in
England, who, continue to hope against
hope. - Colonel - Macias, the accredited rep
resentatives of the insurgent forces in Cuba,
has been in Washington several days, in
company with General McMahon, of New
York, to see what Consn-ess proposes to do
with the joint resolution introduced by Mr.
Cox. and now pendine before the House
Foreign Affairs Committee, according bel
ligerent rights to the Cubans. Colonel
Marcis believes that Lord Granvile, of Eng
land, is in favor of taking steps to bring the
protracted struggle in Cuba to a close;
! We do not want a war with Spain;; but
we do not hesitate to say that civilization
demands that the butchery in Cuba be
stopped. If England and America can put
a stoo to it without a war. humanity de
mands that they take such steps immedi
ately. , .' .
Lowert at Work. On the nirht of the
21st inst., Mr. tftm. McNeill, a resident of
Robeson county, heard somebody breaking
open his smoke house. Mr. McNeill, his
wife and daughter went to the door and
asked who was at the smoke house. . Low-
cry replied that it was none of their damned
business. Mr. McNeill said that he thought
he had a rijrht to inquire who it was that
was breaking into his smoke ' housei-
Whereupon Lowery and - his men fired.
Miss McNeill was shot through the lungs,
and Mrs. McNeill in the leer. The outlaws
took what they wanted and left. Mrs. M.,
is in a dangerous condition, i
The murders and outrages committed by
Lowery and his men are many in number
and horrible in character. Something ought
to be done to kill or capture the whole
band. Money is not to be compared with
life. If tho Legislature would authorize

Charlotte Commercial. - :
We venture to say that North Carolina
has never had a Governor more sparing of
the pardoning power than Gov. Caldwell.
Those who have been the recipients of
such Dower, were fit subjects for the
exercise of that power. No political motives
have or will influence Gov. Caldwell in any
mt.fr nf this kind. The naratrraoh Quoted
ahOVe Is wholly gratuitous, and the insinu-
ation iJl&t Gov Caldwell would pardon no
groes te make them voters, is evidence that
the man who penned the paragraph, is un
worthy of the position of an editor. Demo
crats know that they cannot successfully
assail the administration of Gov. Caldwell,
if the truth is adhered to. Therefore, it be
comes necessary for the purposes of the
Democrats that misrepresentation shall take
the place of truth.
Give the Devil His Due. The Wil
mington Star - learns from a strictly reliable
gentleman just from Shoe Heel, Robeson
county, that it is not generally believed by
persons most conversant with the facts in
relation to : the shooting of Mrs. McNeill
and her daughter that the deed was per
petrated by Lowrey or any of his gang.
The same gentleman states that Lowrey
rode 8 miles in company .with Mr. Z. Fill
more, on Monday last, Boss Strong. at the
same time riding in company with Mr.
Daniel McCallum. No violence was offered
either of tho gentlemen. ; The same day the
outlaws made a bill with Jfr. Charles Mc
Rae. at - Alfordsville, ,and told him they
would settle with him when they called
again. 5 ! 1 ' ;-' ' . : '
We are glad to learn that Miss McNeill is
still improving. ' :

We publish in this issue the address of

-" SckiasKSAuiT. A chambermaid ,'at the

shaking a rug out of a seebnd-stbry window
recently, lost her balance, turned a com
plete summersault arid catne ;dowii 'toihe

Stat at Home. The Robesonian learns
that one of the largest and most successful
farmers in! Robeson county, who emigratad
to the Southwest previous to the war, and
who has been engaged in farming in the
Mississippi Valley, is now 'anxious to re
turIionie, and to re-purchase his old home
stead. This is but one of a number of facts
which should appeal, most powerfully, to
those in this section who now contemplate
abandoning their farms and emigrating to
a new country in search of a better climate
or more prolific lands. If a farmer cannot
make a living on the land that he has work
ed from ; his boyhood up, it may prove a
very difficult matter to do so anywhere else.
There is just as good land, and as fine a cli
mate here at home as can be found in any
other State in the Union.
Killed. James N. Arrington second
son of Hon. A. H. Arlington, was killed
in Nash county on the 22d of last month,
by a falling tree. The deceased and an
other brother were standing some twenty-
five yards from a tree which some negroes
were cutting down. The younger brother
stood still and was unhurt, but Jimmie ran
under the tree as it was falling, through a
mistake, and was struck on the head by a
limb and had a leg broken at the same time,
He died in about fifteen minutes.
' James Arrington was a very promising
youth, much beloved by the family and his
friends, and his untimely death at the early
age of 14 Isia sad blow to his aged and hon
ored father, to whom he was very useful
and who loved him devotedly.

Lenoib Kit Klux Cases. The New Bern

to Wayne County, and have stood for trial
a considerable length of time, having been
called at the special term now being held
by lion. Judge Clarke, the counsel for the
State entered a nol pros.
We understand that the costs, which were
very heavy, have been paid by the defend
ants, and that they wore required to enter
into bond for their jrood Denavior for tne
ensuine twelve months. We are informed
that this termination to these affairs gives
general satisfaction, and it is believed that
it is the last of Ku Klnxism we sall have
in this section of the State. So mote it be.

the defence Is still going on, and is likely to
endure another week. In spite of the in
terminable speech-making of the lawyers
the interest does not flag. The court-room
is crowded every day with spectators, the
majority of high rank. The defence say
they have 300 witnesses, and revelations or
an exciting character are to be looked for.
Democbatic Pboobamme. It is under
stood that the National Democratic Execu-.
tive Committee will not meet in Washing
ton this winter', but will not postpone their
session till after the National Republican
Convention at Philadelphia, when there will
be ample time for all the elements of oppo
sition to unite against the continuance of the
present administration, and to call a nation
al convention to nominate a Presidential
opposition ticket. ' This view meets the ap
proval of leading Democrats in Congress.

S. J. Walton, in the 49th year of her age.
She lived a peaceful; quiet life beloved i
by all who knew her; wa always a true
and faithful wife, parent, friend and neigh

long and severe, with patience seldom shown
by any one.' ! She was aware of the approach
of death, and though she never expressed
is. willingness' to die, yet from her conversa-

she should die, yet 'tis sweet to believe that
she died to live beyond this mortal clay.' v ,
