A GOOD SPEECH.
Among the many good speeches
made at the State Convention, there
were none more beautiful in diction,
more patriotic in sentiment, or more
eloquently delivered than the one
j niade by lion. L. C. Latham, of
iJ'itt, in presenting the name of
Octavii's Coke for the nomina
tion for Governor. Through the
kindness of a friend, we have re
ceived a copy of this speech, and
take pleasure in laving it be
fore our leaders. Mr. Latham
During the past lour ears North
Carolina has made greater progress
on I he road of prosperity than in

Mr. President, we are here to-day
not only to select a candidate for
the highest office within the gift of
the people of North Carolina, but
with an all absorbing desire for
party success, I de.sire to inscribe
upon the folds of the Democratic
banner, ere we doat it to the breeze,
a name that will carry terror into
the ranks of our enemies and in
spire enthusiasm m our own- a
name that, whether heard bv the
sounding shores of the sea. or in
t lu- wildest fatnesses of the moun-
ta:n. will be received bv all classes
of people with tin- most implicit

THE TWO PARTIES.
The two great parties in North
Carolina have met in convention,
adopted their platforms of prin
ciples and nominated their State
The Republican party, after re
peated defeats in the State under
the banner of their own organiza
tion, aud with candidates who had
at least a show of consistency, in
that they had joined the party on
its first advent into the State, had
stood bv its varying fortunes
through the exciting period of re
construction, aud at a time when
to be called a Republican was to
insure the scowl of disdain from a
huge portion of the good and true
people of the State, has meekly suc
cumbed to the inevitable, and vir
tually surrendered to a party of
place-hunters and office seekers
(who claim to be the grand personi.
jtication of Independents and dis
satisfied Democrats, and allowed
that organization, or rather disor
ganization to name the men for all
the important positions that are to
be voted for this fall. Such men as I
Dockery, Huston. Kehogh, Ilubbs
and other faithful Republicans were
shoved aside in order that the lat
i ter day saints might take the reins
: and reap the rewards of a triumph
j should it attend their efforts.

Wilson Mirror: Within ten
minutes after the nomination of
Scales was made on Wednesday a
large banner bearing his name and
surmounted with a magnificent
rooster, in rich full leather, was
nailed to the topmost turrent of the
court house in Wilson, and flung
out to the breezes of heaven.
Kocky Mount Reporter: We
have received the premium list of
the fourth annual fair of the Rocky
Mount Agricultural and Mechanical
Association. The premiums are
large and attractive. At the
Democratic Convention of Nash
counfy, Mr. J. H. Exum, of Whita-
: kers, one ol trie most brilliant men
; at his new place on Koad street,
just beyond the corporation limits,
i Mr. Charles C. Price, jr., will also
; give it a trial.
Elizabeth City Economist: Corn
here is scarce and in demand at
about 70 cents per bushel. Our
townsman, D. B. Bradford, went to
school to J. G. Blaine, iu George
I town, Ky., in the year 1848, but he
, won't vote, for him all the same.

CliDton Caucasian: We
formed that Mr. Nathan "Williams,
of Dismal township, found a bee
tree, the other day on the land of
Mr. M. O. Jackson, and with Mr.
Jackson's permission he cut it
down, when to his surprise he found
but a wasp nest. We have not
heard what luck he had in hiving
them. The crops iu this section
are looking remarkably line. The

Kansas subscribers, Mr. II. C.

Stanley, who removed from this
county fourteen years ago to that
distant State and is now on a short
visit to his old friends. He speaks
in glowing terms of bis adopted
State, so much so indeed that we
fear he may induce some ol our
countrymen to return there with
Kernersvilie Kewg: Notwith
standing the fact that the early
spring was exceedingly wet, at this
time things never were more prom
ising for an abundance of every
thing. Wheat is already made and
those who handle it say they never
handled better. Spring oats are
generally poor in this country, but
the plentiful rain has kept them
going till now a good crop is cer
tain. Corn is looking well, though
we lack iu acreage, not enough
plauted. Tobacco, well, there
never was such a quantity planted,
and never did an all-wise Provi
dence grant a more successful time
for planting. All of week before
last the weather was alternate rain
and sunshine; never giving the
young plants a chance to wilt.
Albemarle Enquirer: AVe be
lieve Bayard the most perfect, the
best rounded politician, the purest
man on this continent; a man
whose convictions of duty have
been trained in a school, where the
lights have been turned ou from
different focuses, so as to show the
various changes, colorings, etc., in
order to arrive at a just aud intelli
gent conclusion, and when ouce
formed, to be as fixed and as firm
as the rock of Gibraltar. Now, who
can but admire such a man, and
who would not be willing to voti
for such a candidate. We firmly
believe that in all elections the
only safe and reliable course to
pursue is to have a sound platform,
select the best and purest men for
candidates then nail our flag to
the mast-head to ride over the storm
gloriously and triumphantly or to
go down bravely and honorably.
Fayetteville Observer: We notice
that our advice about planting late
corn is being generally followed
by the farmers in this section.
Most of the wheat and oat stubble
has been plowed iu and corn plaut

A Marvelous Story
TOLD IR TWO LETTERS.
FROM THE SON:
"28 Cedar St., Xew
" Gentlemen: My father resides at Glover,
Vt. He has been a great snflerer from Scrof
ula, and the inclosed letter will tell you wliat
a marvelous effect
has had is his case. I think his blood must
have contained the humor for at least tcu
years ; but it did not show, except in the form
of a scrofulous sore on the wrist, until about
five years ago. From a few spots which ap
peared at that time, it gradually spread so as
to cover his entire body. I assure you he was
terribly afflicted, and an object of pity, when
he began using your medicine. Now, there are
few men of his age who enjoy as good health
as ho has. I could easily name fifty persons
who would testify to the facts in his case.
Tours truly, TV'. M. PKTT.I.rps."
FROM THE FATHER: "Ztl
a duty for me to state to you the benefit I
hare derived from the use of
Six months ago I was completely covered with
a terrible humor and scrofulous sores. The
humor caused an incessant and intolerable
itching, and the skin cracked so as to cause
the blood to flow in many places whenever
I moved. My sufferings were great, and my
life a burden. I commenced the use of the
Sarsaparilla in April last, and have used
it regularly since Jhat time. My condition
began to improve at onoe. The sores have
all healed, and I feel perfectly well in every
respect being now able to do a good day's
work, although 73 years of age. Many inquire
what has wrought such a cure in my ease, and
I tell them, as I have here tried to tell you,
Ater's Sarsaparilla. Glover, Vt., Oct.
21, 1882. Yours gratefully,
Arm's Sarsapabilla euros Scrofula
and all Scrofulous Complaints, Erysip
elas, Eczema, King-worm, Blotches,
Sores, Bolls, Tumors, and Eruptions of

the bowels, and thus restores vitality and
strengthens the whole system.
