These men wool 1 tind the rural ; districts better suited to their hatiits than the halls of Con- j grehs.

State Chronicle. The passage of the Federal Election Law by the House of Bep- resen.tatives is no surprise to us. It is the last desperate attempt to keep the Repoblican party in power, hot it will not accomplish its object. The finger of Fate has written TtkeV on the wall, and all ocean's waters caDnot wash it out. Never before were there so many candidates for Congress before the nominating Convention Among many reasons for this may be the inability of the present Con gress to deal with great questions of public interest, and the national disposition of every patriot to go t) the rescue of his bleeding country. May we not indalge the hope that the next Congress will be a big improvement on the presem one. The City Board of Greensboro, N. C, have had a lively discussion of the saloon question. After a most spirited contest, rive licenses were granted, and the tax fixed at $500 each. An ordinance was passed requiring all gambling appliances, such as billiards &c, screws, pictures and other obstruc tions to view to be removed from bar rooms. The Democrats in the Congress see the great dangers lurking in the diabolical Force bill ofRadl calism and warn the South against it. They have issued a vigorous protest that will not go unheeded. Brother Democrats' of North Caro lina, it is tbe worst possible time to set up new idols, to go out after strange gods, to introduce tbe wedge of discord to sunder the grand old party upon which de pends all political health and life. Wilmington Messenger. Let every good Democrat in paign. The Democratic party is rbe people's party and every Democrat has a right to be beard in its deliberations. Cliques and rings have no place in the party, tue of any right. The people to tDe ,for" grave responsibilities and impor- tant duties. It is the trumpet blast that calls us to stand by sacred right with undying faith and unflinching resolution. No possible condition of human affairs can justify the exhibition of a craven spirit. Manhood must be the distinguishing characteristic of the South. The nr8t crack9 made in the 8mooth surface of friend. hip are as dangerous as those which oome to the sheeny satin garment of young married love. Freedom of speech and exacting close attention, neg lcet of due forms, liberties beyond tbe license of jast intimacy, all these are cracks to be stopped in the beginning, else the time will come wuen no masonry or tact or ; of affection can repair them. j He is the true hero and Bhe ia , the true woman with whom the impulses oi ninuuess are most, powerful and by whom the call for help is not unheeded; and they are best fitted fer usefulness who do not waste their sympathy in the fruitless pursuit of useless excite ment. Kver.vthing iu nature "grows either healthy or unhealthy; and character is no exception. It is either expanding into new and more lovely forms or it is tonghen- ing and hardening into deformity. It is either ripening into richness and sweetness or shriveling into crabbed bitterhess. OURSELVE. The fault, dear Bratus, ih nut iniur tar. Bat in ourl ve that we are under liogs. Cabius. j Nothiog is manlier than sell- reliance. There is uo manliness 1 without it. In its taking ofF man hood id emasculated. to I mechanic most rely ou the strength of his a-m ; the professional man on the astuteness of his intellect ;, the larmer upon his judgment and ; indostry. All men, in the varied ; j dauntless et-ergy, integrity abjve , suspicion and spotless reputation. Nor is this all Social virtues must be relied ou to secure adn retain liieuds, for without fnends patronage will not be commensu i ate with the wants and necessary expenses incident to the demands uuited:of evur" dav Iife' The'arroeant man is a curse and a failure; the eelf reliant man is a blessing and asaccess. As it is with individuals so it is with manic palities. The city that has no self reliance is destined to become the abode of the owl and the bat. Tbe beautiful handmaid ol commerce will Dot abide within its dust covered and mouldering j walls ; and tbe goddess of wealth j will withdraw her golden sceptie ! and leave it to ruin and desolation. I "Hector's chief reliance must be on . Heetor," is now and forever true, j "Put your own shoulder to the; wheel, and then oall on Hercules.'' A city that is trustful of itself will command faith in others. The location of a plant by a citizen will cause the location of a dozen plants, and capital will flow in like the tides of tbe sea. The greatest enemy to any city is the citizen wbo has no confidence in its future. A period is approaching that will put tbe manhood and self reliance of our people to the severest test. It is probable that the national elections! bill will pass Congress and become the law of the land. The manhood of the South is again to be tested. We have no fear of the result. Long ago her sons learned to Bay with Brutus, Set honor in one eye and death i' the other. And I will look on both indifferently. For let the god so speed me as I love The name of honor more than I fear death. This land is ours. God gave it to us, and we have defended it ! Whatever may have been our faults, no man can say that we have been false to home and native land. It is now too late to reverse the conduct of our lives. With an honorable self reliance, an unfalter ing faith in onr fellowmen and a sublime trnst in God, we will move intrepidly forward in the path of duty let it lead where it may. If anight ot disaster comes, we will walk through it with all the stars of honor shining with un dimmed splendor in our Southern ! kies. A HOOD BEGIX5IXG. The old saying, "a good begin ning makes a bad ending," is all j wrong. "Train up a child in the ways he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from them," are words of inspiration. But when we wrote the caption of this article, we were thinking of this year's political campaign. The judicial convention lately in session at Smithfield made a good beginning of tbe campaign. It was representative in the person of their chosen delegates and the convention ooold not be otherwise than representative of the patriotic aDd virtuous citizens of tbe dis trict.

This is no idle eulog'. A heavy cloud hangs over us ; we feel bereft. And amid the tear clouds which surrouud t his pall, we lay tenderly, j lovingly, hopefully this wreath of immortels upon our iriend and brother's bier.

It is a matter for us to reflect upon, and it should incite us to help our children to cultivate that spirit of kindliness which would just as readily speak well of people as ill, if not to prefer to do so.

Rascality is picturesque, doubt less, and in fiction it has even Us moral uses; but in real lite it should have no toleration; and it is, as a matter ol fact, seldom accompanied by the ability that it brags. "Oue proof that the smart rogue is not so smart as he thinks, and as others think, is that he so often comes to grief. He arrives at his success through his knowledge of the evil in meii; he comes to grief through his ignorance of the good . in men. He thinks he knows. 'human nature ' but he only half ; knows it. Therefore he is constantly, iu danger of making a fatal mistake. For instance, his excuse to himself for lying and trickery is that lying and trickery are indulged in by others even by some men who make a load boast of virtue before the world. A little more or less of lying and trickery seems to make no differ ence, the assumes, especially so long as there is no public display of lies and tricks, for he under stands that there must always be a certain outware propriety iu order to insure even the inferior kind of success he is aiming at. But, hav ing no usable conscience to guide him, he underrates the sensitive- i npHa rf rlhr rnnspionnns anf especially the sensitiveness of that j vague sentime' t called 'puoiic 1 opiuton,' and he makes a miscal ! culation, which, if it does not land I him in the penitentiary, at least makes him of uo use to his respect able allies, therefore, of no use to his semicriminal associates-; there fore, a surprised, miserable, aud vindictive failure." "unruly member.'' By good listen ers we mean people whocau submit to be bored to an unlimited extent I without interrupting the borer, or responding in any other way than by "nods and becks and wreathed i Smiles.'' ! "Open your mouth aud shut your ; eyes, aud see what Heaven will send you," says the old maxim; but "shut your mouth and open your ears" would be much more sensible advice. What does a man learn by talking? Nothing. Oa the other hand, through the convenient doors on either side of the temple of thought, valuable information is continually "dropping iu." Even the windows in lrout, the eyes, are not more useful thau these doors. Therefore. keep them always aiar Sleep with one ear open, as well as one eve. If vou are in the employ of a loquacious of a loquacious man of wealth, match your listening pow ers against his volubility, though ; it be as perpetual as the rush of a j torrent.

And scarcely remembering what meat meant, That my poor stomach's past reform; And there are times when mad with thinking, I'd sell out heaveu for something warm To prop a horrible inward sinking. Is t here a way to forget to think? At your age, sir, home, fortune, friends, A dear girl's love but 1 took to drink The same old story; you lyiow how it ends. If you could have seen these classic need'nt laugh, sir; they were not then Such a burning libel on God's creatures. I was oue of your handsome men! If you had seen her, so fair and young, Whose head was so happy on this breast ' If you could have heard the songs I sung SVhec the wine went rouud, you would- That TtZll be sn-aying From door to door, with fiddle and dog, Ragged and penniless, and playing To you to-uight for a glass o' grog ! She's married since a par.'Oa's w:fe, 'Twas better for her that we should part Better the soberest, prosiest life, Thau a blasted home and a broken heart. I have seen heiV Onco; I was weak and spent On the dusty road; a carriage stopped; But little she dreamed, a? on she went, Wlio kissed the coin that her fingers dropped. You've set me talking, sir; I'm sorry; It makes me wild to think of the change ! What do you care for a beggar's story? , J1 musntf You find it strange? I nau a mouier so urouu oi mi 'Twas well she died before Do you know If the happy spirits iu heaven ran see The ruin and wielchedness' here below? Another glass, and strong, to deaden This pain; then Roger and I will start I wonder, has he such a lumpish, leaden, Aching thing in place of a heart? He is sad sometimes, and would weep if lie could, No doubt remembering things that were A virtuous kennel, with plenty of food, Aud himself a sober, respectable cur. I'm better now; that glass was warming. You rascal ! Limber your lazy feet. We must be fiddling and performing For supper and bed, or starve in the street. Not a very gay life to lead, you ihink? But soon we shall go where lodgings are free, And the sleepers noed neither victuals nor drink. The sooner the better for Roger and nie. : -rrr. ; Longer Ragged. Some one asked the editor of the London Punch why ragged people never go to church, and replied, "Because when people go to church they soon cease to be ragged." There is a world of truth in that explanation, The hungry , creatures tbat have to be fed and clothed by the hand of charity rarely belong to any ry and ragged men who would soon be able to leed and ciotne tnem- selves it they were orougnc unoer Gospel influences. - - Precious boy "Mamma, was Ananias killed for telling just one lie!"
