Upon the ireueral questions that di
vide public opinion, it is enough to say
thafrlam a Republican,1 and favor the
re-election of Governor; Caldwell and
President Grant. i
f My views upon the financial topics of
the days! not precisely included in the
platform 6f either political party, are
as follows : ' . ! j
1. If elected I shall endeavor to have
the Internal Revenue system abolished.
In North Carolina its interference with
old and permanent forms of production
and Industry, no less than its direct
burdens as a tax, and the disaster and,
sometimes ruin, which its enforcement
brings upQn those who violate its pro
Visions, often' innocently and inadvert
ently; are J most vexatious and oppres
sive. These are results not peculiar to
the present system, but apparently in
separable from every system which
draws by direct taxation immense sums
of moneyj from the people, l thinK
that the experiment should cease. It
is obviousithat a repeal of this law will
act as &&ounti upon widespread and
valable interests amongst us, and thus
the very arguments which prevail, in
behalf of such interests in other parts of
the country, toerve a protective char
acter to the Taritf, demand in favor of
t ..iL. . A '
ours, me, repeal oi mis excise uix upon
Tobacco and, Distillation.
II. In niy opinion it is impolitic to
raise revenue from the people for any
further payment towards the principal
of the National debt, until the same be
What has been done in that way
indeed, was good policy, as going to
establish public credit, rendered ques
tionable by the confusion .which fol
lowed tho recent war and especially
by the financial views of distinguished
leaders of 'political opinion in these
parts of the country. The administra
tion of General Grant has already paid
some three hundred and fifty millions
of the principal of this debt ; and under
existing legislation, before any change,
such as I propose, can be effected, it is
probable that five hundred millions of
it will have been paid. The principal
of this : debt is demandable partly in
about 10, land partly in about 30 years. -The
wealth of the country is advance
ing with strides so gigantic, that at
the end of those periods, payment oi
this principal will be felt as a burden
only cne-halj and probably, not more
than one-fourth of what it is now. In
the. mean time North Carolina wjll
have recovered from her present par
alvsis. Such recovery will be hastened
by the policy of drawing as little money
from her people by taxation, as tne pres
ent needs of the country demand.
III. Therefore, I propose that the
revenue of the United States shall be
raised entirely by a Tariff, the object
of which, shall be to collect no more
than the amount needed to meet cur
rent demands on account of our National
Debt, and to defray the ordinary ex
penses of ; administering the govern
ment, and such expenses to be reduced
at every opportunity, towards the
simplest reauirements of a time of
peace and quiet.

Letter From John A. Ilyman.
Mr. Editor : I desire through your
columns to reply to a .Letter from J .
Randolph, Jr.," which appeared in The
Era of the 2oth of May. .
I must think that if my friend Ran
dolph was not himself subject to the
beguiling influences of flattery he would
not suppose that the complimentary
things said of me in Democratic news
papers were likely to turn my head and
seduce me from my .allegiance to the
Republican party. However this may
be, I will say to friend Raudolph and
all others, that I am alike insensible to
the frowns and the blandishments of
the Democracy. My devotion to the
Republican party is deeper and broader
than any mere desire of place. I flatter
myself that I have rendered good ser
vice to the party in the past, and if I
were not able to render some service in
the present and immediate future, I
imagine I should not be the subject of
the alluring arts of the enemy or of the
silly fears of friends. I stand now
where I have stood since the organiza
tion of the party in North Carolina,
squarely on the Republican platform.
I nave ever given, am now giving, and
shall continue to give a hearty and
cordial support to all the nominees of
that party, State and National. If J.
Randolph, Jr., or any other man of my
opportunities and means can and will
do more for the success of the Republi
can ticket in the present campaign than
myself, 1 will forgive him the injustice
he has done me by supposing that it
was necessary for me to appear before
the public in the columns of a news
paper to define my position.

The Democratic candidate for Gov-,
ernor, Hon. A. S. Merrimon, delivered
his campaign speech in the Court House
at this place Elizabeth City, on. Sat
urday. Extraordinary efforts had been
made to get up a large mass meeting.
Appeals were sent out through notices
in the papers, posters and private let
ters to "the faithful" in this and neigh
boring counties to rally and give this
"son of the mountains' a grand recep
tion. Thousands were confidently ex
pected, and arrangements ( were made
to hold the meeting in the.. Academy
Green : but lo! when the hour arrived
there were not enouarh neoDle assem
bled, including boya and Radicals, to
fill the Court Mouse. .Evidently Mer
rimon stock is not up to par in this
section of the State. The people have
no faith in him. They look upon him
as an aristocrat -as a representative of
the class having no sympathy with or
for the masses, and they . have not for
gotten that he was the apologist and
defender of the Ku Klux conspirators
who have brought so much odium upon
the fair fame of .worth Carolina.
The Democratic leaders were fear
fullv disappointed in the crowd : we
were disappointed in the ispeaKer.
The papers had heralded him as a man
of srreat ability and as an orator of no
common order. His effort by no means
filled the bill. He proved himself to
be a man of large utterance, but, as is
generally the case in those instances,
of small perform aace. His speech was
too long, too dull, too prosy. It failed
to excite enthusiasm. He spent too
much time alluding to bye-gone issues
raking up the ashes of the extinct Ke
bellion and blowing to see if some lin
gering spark might not be coaxed out

The Judge dilated extensively on
frauds and corruptions, and especially
on the combinations and devices by
which the State was swindled i n her
Railroad bonds, but he was very care
ful not to acknowledge that he himself
was the Attorney of the " Prince of
Swindlers," : and that he had drafted
the very bill , whereby the cheat and
swindle was accomplished the bill
through which North Carolina was
defrauded out of millions, thus adding
to her desolation and increasing the

as adduced on trial are toese: Botli men
were soldiers in the Federal army, and after
the war Wm. Haney purchased of James
his papers of "honorable discharge" from
the service.' ! Soon after the close of the war
Congress passed an act giving soldiers an
additional bounty of $100. This Induced
James Haner to attempt the recovery of I
the papers, I which Wm. Haney stubbornly
refused to surrender. They finally agreed
to; leave the matter to the arbitration of
Gray Haney, brother to William. Upon
this concurrence, they went to the house of
Gray, and James requested him to go a few
steps with him for a confidential conversa
tion, when William remarked to his brother
that he would not go (if he was in his place)
wilh Jim, unless he left his pistol, as he (
was a dangerous man. Upon this, James
drew his weapon and fired at William, in
flicting a wound in his bowels from which
he" died next day.

The Presidential campaign will open in

exciting in its character, as it will be the
most important in its results that has oc
curred since 1840. The Democratic party
has temporarily struck its colors, and seek,
under false pretenses and a leader false to
his life's teachings and precepts, to get con

undoing the work of the war, and re-inau
gurating sectional strife. It hopes to find
in Mr. Greeley a second Buchanan. , The
