WHAT TO DO.
What shall we do this hot
weather T All seasons bave their
duties and obligations. Personal
com fort is always considered. It
presses its claims and forces their
observance, bat the survival of the
fittest asserts itself, and the de
mands of personal comfort most
yield to tbe inexorable commands
urops must De gamerea ana
garnered in summer's heat or the
fruits of months of labor will perish
on the field. The shoemaker must
stick to bia last, whither "the
north wind blows and we shall have

and nature wilts as in a furnace.
There is no release from the law
j .'in the sweat of thy face sh alt

mon lot of man. But we, North
'. Carolinians, have public duties to
perform which cannot be evaded

right to eujoy the blessings of good

I maintenance of good government.
The elections of this year are
especially important. They are
both feder-l and State. They con
cern home affairs around the fami
ly altar, and stretch out to the
uttermost limits of civilization.
Let no man stay away from pri
mary meetings, township, county
and State conventions under the
' delusive idea that he has no inter
est in politics. The faet that he is

WHAT DID WE FINDV
We went into nearly every house in
two warus, from South Front street on
the placid Trent to the foot of Attuiore
street on the rolling Neuse. (Speaking
in a general way, we foundafaiity
haDDV. contented and in wnermia nn
, pie. With some privations and dis-
comforts, there are many advantages
and compensations which tend to equal
ize tne common lot.
To be more explicit, we found roem
places occupied by lewd and loose
people, where the sights and sounds
and smells are anything but agreeabte
or wholesome. There are large num
bers of illegitimate children, and quite
too many "brigLt mulaKoes " Trie
paternity of tbeee is in a large part
well known. This is a sin and a shame,
verily it is an iniquity to be punished
by tbe judges,
i Tbere are some tenements uot very
many which are not fit for human
beings to dwell in. Leaky, open, out
of level and out of plumb leaning, but
not to virtue's side they ara not suit
able shelters for well oared for domestic
animals. The rental, about two -dollars
a month, is not perhaps too great, but
a more humane, generous and Christian
spirit would give belter value for the
We found a remarkable degree of
prolificnesa among some of the colored
people ten women having borne one
hundred and sixty children, which is
an average of sixteen, two of tbem
having produced eighteen each, but the
rolled in the Census Bureau-as relics of
the eighteenth century.
We found same very fine families,
parents and children with sometimes
e grandmother numbjnng I leni or
more, the children hearty, bright and
active. We bave a pleasant remem
brance of several groups of six or eight
little people who gathered around ub
and took much interest in telling with
great readinefs and accuracy the
'names and ages" from pipa down to
the little tot in tbe cradle.
But tbeee large families are seldom
an unbroken cirole. The mother
usually remembers and often speaks
tenderly of one who "is not." The
pott s words
express a well nigh uni-
versal tuith :
'There is no Hock however
But one dead lamb is there.
There is no household bowsoe'er
But has one vacant chair."
We found a dozen or two of the
prettiest bahies that ever gladdened a
patenl,'H heart. We have a very sharp
cut opinion as to which is the prettiest
baby in our beat, but we shall keep that

DeaK Sir: I have the honor to ack
nowledge the receipt of your esteemed
' favor of recent date, which was handed
j me upon my return from Washington.
I have not. I ruul confess, read a- d
luditd wi:b due care what in known
i a the Sub- : resury bi'l recently intro- j
duced in the Senate by Smat r Van'e
! but I believe I understand the general
: ojecta and piirort of its provisions,
' alJd whiltj I uo not mean to Bpeak with
reference to its details, I cau with tbe
utmost candor and sincerity say, I am
j la nearly sympathy and accord with
lbe Alliance in its laudable determina-
. tion to secure for tbe ubo of the people
n '"crease in the volume of our money
and money substitutes by the free and
unrestricted coin igo of silver and tbe
establishment of bettor systems of
banking thau wo have, and to devise
and enact into la w some feasible scheme
by which the farmer can by uing the
product of bis toil as a baeis of credit,
secure at cheap and eay Tates the
money needed in bis operations.
The organization of our farmers for
the purpose of resit-ting the encroach
menin of capital, monopoly and corpo
rate iijflaence was iroDeratively do-
maiiued by the exigencies of the times. !
and will. I confidently believe, result '
in needed reforms and the enactment
of more j'lst and equal laws.
With all the aspirations and purposes
of tbe alliance in this direction lam in
But let me urge jou and through you
the Alliance which you represent and
for which you speak in your letter to
me, in your just clamor against injus
tice do not forget the enemy who has
inflicted the wrong and for years
filched you of what was rightfully
yours. Let me ask you. is there a sin
gle law on the statute books of which
your Alliance complains, and from tbe
enforcement and operation of which it
members are now suffering, that was
not placed there by the Republican
party? The Internal revenue, the tariff,
the National Banking act, and tbe de
monetization of silver, are they not
each and every one of them Republican
measures. And if that parly has now
and then amended these laws, has it
not always amended them against the
toiler, whether in Held or factory, and
in tbe interest of money, capital and
combination? That party not only en
acted these laws of which you 80 justly
complain, but it has steadfastly defend
ed them against the often frustrated
and as often renewed assaults of tbe
Democratic party, and ic is today de
fending them against the combined de
mand of tbe farmers of this great coun
try and in defiance and disregard of
the mutteriegs and groans of the fifty
five millions of people upon whox 1 it
has laid tbese grievous burdens.
The Republican party is and has been
the enemy of tbe farmer.
The Democratic party is his friend
and only hope for the redress of his
great wrongs, and I do earnestly trust
that nowbere in this country will your
great organization aliow itself to fall
into lines of antagonism to the latter
and by divisions pave the way to tbe
continued ascendency of the former.
For myself, permit me to say my
father is a farmer and so were all his
ancestors before him. I was myself
born and raised on a farm. Almost
every dollar I own is invested in farm
ing lands, and it would, it xeeinsto me.
be strange indeed if under these cir
cumstances I did not feel a community
of interest with that class of my fellow
citizens for whom jou speak in your
very kind letter.
Believe mo, sincerely yours,
F. M. Simmoks.

son gives the following account
of a night attack of Tlamath
Indians: "This was the only
night in all our travels, except
the one night on an Island in
Salt lake, that we failed to keep
guard. As the men were tired,
and as we expected no attack,
the Colonel didn't like to ask it
of them, but sat up late himself,
Owens and I were sleeping
together, and we were waked at
the same time bv the licks of

first I didn't know it was that,
but 1 called to Basil, who was
on that side: "What's the
matter there? What's that fuss
about?-' He never answered,
for he was dead then, poor
fellow, and he never knew what
killed him, his head had been
cut in his sleep;the other groaned
a little 'as he died. The Dela
wares (we had four with us)
were sleeping at the time, and
sprang up as the Tlamaths
charged them. One of them
caught up a gun that was
loaded, but, although he could
do no execution he kept them at
bay, fightinr like a soldier, and
didn't give Up Until he was shot
fM n nf arrnws throe nfe;-o-
iull of arrows three entering
his heart. He died bravely. As
soon as I had called out, I saw
it was Indians in the camp, and
I and Owens together cried out,
"Indians!" There were no
orders given; things went on
too fast, and the Colonel had
men with him, who didn't have
to be told to do theirduty. The
Colonel and I, Maxwell, Owens,
Godey and Stepp jumped
together we six and ran to
the assistance of our Delawares.
I don't know who fired and who
didn't; but I think it was Stepp's
shot that killed the Tlamath
chief, for it was at the crack of
Stepp's gun that he fell. He had
an English half-ax strung to his
wrist by a cord, and there were
forty arrows in his quiver the
most beautiful and warlike
arrows that I ever saw. When
the Tlamaths saw him fall they
ran, but we lay, every man with
his rifle cocked, until daylight,
expecting another attack. In
the morning we found from the
tracks that from fifteen to
twenty of the Tlamaths had
attacked us. They had killed
three of our men and wounded
one of the Delawares beside
one killed who scalped the
chief, whom we left where he
fell. Our dead we carried on
mules, but after going about ten
miles, we found it impossible to
get them any further through
the thick timber, and finding a
secret place we buried them
under logs and chunks, having
no way to dig a grave."
The many deeds of this gallant
Kentuckian would make up an
interesting volume. No braver
man ever lived;no more generous
heart ever beat in any man's
bosom. No call of distress was
ever passed unheeded; suffering
