the Ladies to Ostracise anct Scorn
, Itcpublicans. i
The night after the Greeley festivities
in FayettevIIIe, Mr. Thomas Jt Jarvis
O w -w - J VMSUI
he said, was this, addressing himself to
the Ladies: . f
"You have the power by ostracism and
scorn toward scalawags and their comrades,
vo ucsiroy metaaicai party." I
Tins was excellent advice; for an
Elector at XArge on the Greeley: ticket.
Ilia Deputy Excellency must have for
gotten what his chief said about clasp-
ing hands across ... the bloody chasm "
otherwise, he would not have advised
the Ladies to .ostracise and scorn Tier'
publicans. Since The Boleigh Sentinel
in 1868, advised Democrats to ostracise
and proscribe Republicans, such advice
has not been given until Mr Jarvis
repeated It at Fayetteville. Republi
cans care nothing for
proscription by Democrats
proper to inquire - who is Jarvis ?
I. He is the man who canvassed
tho West in 1871, in behalf of !tho un
constitutional Convention scheme, had
"whole acres of people" to hear him
norate, and "set the mountains on fire
in several places." j .,
His Western campaign was a com
plete failure. Wherever he spoke, the
Democrats lost votes. The result of his
labors in behalf of Convention! buried
Mr. Jarvis, politically. He went to the
West for the purpose of "fixing things"
' "jT; 1V!1,

I r.. ,on i

II. He is tho man, who as speaker
or the House of Itepresentatives, threw
his influence against the Hon. (? j Josiah
Turner, jr., Editor of The Sentinel, and
endeavored to give the State printing
to Maj. W. A. Hearne. In this he
failed, as he did in the VVest. He in
curred the deadly hatred of the Hon. (?)
Josiah, and as head of the party, Tur
ner issued orders that Jarvis must be
killed politically that he was riot true,
and must not be nominated for any
office within the gift of the peopTe.
III. He is the man who went to the
Greensboro Convention a j candi
date for Governor, but found soon af
ter his arrival at that plae, that the
crdors of Turner had preceded him and

IV. He is, the man who returned to
Tyrrell county and became a candidate
for Congress. He is said to have made
a bargain with Louis Latham, of Wash
ington, for the purpose of securing the
nomination for one or the other. The
bargain was : That whenever it was as
certained which one was the stronger
before the Congressional Convention
the other was to have the vote of his
county cast for the stronger candidate.
Several ballots showed that Latham
was stronger than Jarvis, but His Dep
uty Excellency did not have the vote
of Tyrrell cast for Latham. The bal
loting continued, and when Jarvis saw
that the vote of Tyrrell would nomi
nate, he ordered the delegate from that
county to cast it for Hon. D. M. Carter.
Thus it w as that Carter was nominated,
and this is the way Mr. Jarvis kept
faith with Latham. I
V. He it is who desired a nomina
tion for the Senate, but Mr. Latham
couldn't see it: and tho Senatorial
Convention resulted in the jnomi-
ination of Latham and SatterthwTaite.
VI. He is tho man who, after being
defeated for the nomination of Gover
nor, Lieutenant-Governor, Congress,
and Senate, retired to Tyrrell and beg
ged piteously to be nominated for the
House of Representatives. His con
stituents had received orders from Tur
ner, and they laid
Mr. Jarvis on , the
political shelf by refusing to re-nomi
nate him. I
Such is the man who has. been os
tracised and scorned by his party ; there
is'no place, however humble, that the
Democrats would think of bestowing
upon one of the "Appointors General,"
as Chief Justice Pearson styled Messrs
Warren and Jarvis. The arrogance of
his ex-Excellency is wonderful. Al
most spit upon by his own pariy ; de
graded by repeated defeats, he has the
presumption to advise North Carolina
ladies to ostracise and scorn men who

Having lost favor with the party by
his assault upon Turner, it was neces-
-r A - 1 I A 1
sary lor jur. jarvis to uo someuiing
extra to convince Josiah of his loyalty
to Democracy and Ku KUxisrri. His
advice to ostracise and scorn- was in
accordance with Turner's teachings ;
hence, Mr. Jarvis gave tho advice. -Other
Democratic speakers who aro in
good standing with party, may be av
owed to advise the use of ostracism
and scorn for party purposes
man who was defeated for the nomina
tion of Governor, Lieutenant-Governor,
Congress, Senate, and lastly, , by his
own county people lor tne jnouse oi
Representatives, is under the ban, and
has no right to call upon the ladies to
place other people in like condition
with himself. The unfitness of Mr.
Jarvis for any public position was de
monstrated by the advice ho gave at
Fayetteville, as well as the shallowness
of his intellect.

The Jntelligehcer chooses to be can-

Inasmuch as Senator Stephens, of Cas

and made war upon the Democratic
party, suffered death by the halter, it
is probable the "rope and halter" will
be brought into use again after Greeley
is elected. Greeley will , be defeated.-

THE FLAG OP DISTRESS.
A Mournful WaiL from Greeley's
From tho York Tribune August 24.
There are ; no i douht Liberals and
Democrats enough in the United States
to elect Mr. Greeley? President in No-
vember. Whether they; will do it or
not is another . question, the answer to
I which depends almost -as much upon
the manner in wmeh they conduct the
l strencrth. It is certain that the Liberals
(and Conservatives for instance have a

strength to. bear so j effectively that If
j iney comu not secure u gvuuiue victory
they at. least savea themselves from
rout. Elsewhere the preparations of
of the Administration party have been

great advantage of controlling all the
patronage . and other influence of the
government. On our side too much

to the best drilled; Our campaign is

to be beaten unless j we do more than
we are doing now -to get our men into
the field and secure recruits from
among the wavering and dissatisfied.
We say, then, to the friends of the
Liberal cause : T
1. Don't waste all your strength oh
parades. Banners, bonfires, cannon and
torchlight processions are very well in
their way, laut they don't make voters.
They only amuse the men who would
vote for your candidate anyhow.
2. Don't rely too much upon public
meetings. They are one-sided affairs,
which neither develop your own
strength nor influence the followers of
the opposite party, j I
3. Don't rely toomuch upon circulars.
Very few voters read them. ' They are
used for kindling and shaving paper.
Besides, the' Grant party has abused
the system to such an extent that a
man distrusts whatever comes to him
in that shape. ' f
4. Don't waste your money on Cam
paign Chowder Clubs, and other frauds.
This, is a great season for impecunious
political -suckersi-Be: as civil s you
please, Dut show them the door.
5. Organize the party thoroughly by
districts, in every city, village and
township of the United States. If there
is no local organization where you
live, get together a' few of your neigh
bors and form one. '. i
6. As soon as a club is formed appoint
active canvassers to visit every house.
Thus every man yho believes in the
principles of our party can be enrolled,
and the wants of every district can be
-7. Have District meetings at regular
times, so that the spirit and interest of
the members may be sustained by as
sociation.' Never mind gatherings for
buncombe, but meet often for business.
Put your clubs into communication
with the county or State associations,
and report to headquarters your needs,
your progress, and your strength, j
8. Do these things at once. Begin
your local clubs to-day. The opposite
party is active and well disciplined,
and we are not. We have a great deal
of lost time to make up, and only a
little while to do it in. With energetic
and well directed1 effort, our victory! in
November is certain ; but the prize
will be snatched from our hands if we
do not rouse ourselves in season. I
The advice given to the Liberals by
The Tribune, is equally applicable to
Republicans of this State. Read the
article carefully and act upon it at once.

"We are becoming heartily tired and
disgusted with hearing about the West
and the hres lighted in her mountains
just on the eve of every election, jln
the late election she has behaved most
shabbily, and notwithstanding the fact
that the whole of our party power in
speakers and workers was thrown with
in her limits." She failed to appreciate
the importance of the occasion, and
through their indifference and luke-
warmness, caused the defeat of Mem

The Southerner has yet to learn that

From them the Democracy, which
represents alone the "wealth and intel
ligence of the state, j has no interest or
sympathy in common, and has persist--
ently refused to Recognize their merits
or claims in the counsels of. State.

the attention of the "mud-sill" legislators-

which were by lar too inconsiderable
to come within the scope of the classic-

For years these men had it in their

It is these just but natural causes'
which have extinguished the'Demc

the faintest echo of a rallying party cry.
The Tammany and Greeley Coall-
. tion. ' ' -Every
true and honest : Democrat in
New York rejoices at tho noblo stand
which the Apollo Democracy havo
taken in regard to the ! Presidency.
That organization which last Fall
swept the corrupt Tammanyl ring out
of power, have determined to go ahead
with the good work then begun, and
to defeat the infamous Greeley and ;
Tammany coalition. And just hero
we wish to explain to our readers who;
may not fully understand the subject,
the nature of this Greeley and Tam
many coalition. Tho deposed leaders
of Tammany havo been keenly on tho
lookout ever since their overthrow by
the Appolo Hall Democracy for an op- .
portunifyto regain their dost power..
The defection of the Liberal j Republi
cans furnished, as they supposed, that
opportunity. Tho genius of Peter B.
Sweeny conceived the scheme of mak-;1
ing a bargain with the Greeley Repub
licans to the effect . that : Tammany
would work up the nomination, of
Greeley at Baltimore in return for . tho ...
Greeley influence in afterward rcstor-.
Ing the old Tammany ring to power.
We could furnish elaborate I proof of
this statement if it were necessary, but
the facts are so apparent !to ; every
thoughtful observer that it is needless
to follow the subject further Tho very .
fact that Tie Tribune suddenly stopped
its crusade against the Tammany ring; ,
the fact that the remains of Tammany
are now clinging to 'Greeley as drown
ing men clutch at straws, amply show
the nature of their coalition.
Now the honest Democrats of New
York, who are represented by tho
Apollo Hall organization, are deter-,
mined that this shrewd Tammany
scheme i shall not bo consummated.
They had to labor hard last Fall to
break the Tammany ring : and they do
not mean to allow it to bo so quickly
welded by this coalition with Greeley
and his gang of hungry office seekers.
This is the whole question in a nut
shell, and the ring papers may howl
themselves hoarse in their impotent
rage against the men who killed Tam
many and who intend to prevent its
resurrection. The intelligent Demo
crats ot New York do not mean to be
sold out b the tricksters who aro long
ing for their old feeding places at tho -public
crib. It was a wily dodge, well
worthy or the great political tactician
who conceived it; but happily it was'
seen through Dy the keen-slerhtcd
friends i of the people who ; lead tho
Apollo Hall organization, and the city .
is now safe from the calamity of Tam
many restoration by means of the Gree
ley coalition. New York Union, Dent'
