Their final action is to hold a

The South, they say. will not

ROGERS, OF JV0RT1IAMPT0X.
Who Is Rogers, of Northampton ?
He is a man of good report among
his neighbors and is the nominee
of the Democratic convention of
the second congressional district
of North Carolina.
We are all for Rogers. Few of
us knew three days beioro the con
vention that we had such a man,
but it is no unusual thing for the
fS'VrrBir ffitTOlina.to bring

Arkansas and is admitted to be

side, and we are proud to learn
that he is a native of North Caro
lina." We will duplicate the bill by
sending another Rogers to Congress
from this old North State.
They say, "the Alliance did it."
Well, if the farmers will do as well
in making crops as they do in pro
ducing candidates all of us will
soon be rich. This writer has in
dulged in a little extravagance, in
proepect of better times, and even
now feels the exhilarating effect of
a good supper. Ilurrah for Rogers !
But Mr. Rogers does not appear
before the couutry as an Alliance
man. He is the Democratic uomi
nee, and under the broad folds of
the Democratic Mag he marches to
What is it to be a Democrat. It
is to stand for the right; to feel
the throb of humanity, see tho
wants of humanity and have the
courage to strike for humanity ; it
is to scanu oy tue onstiiuuou,
and under its broad shield delend
Ameiican honor and American
interests; it is btand by the State
and defend the liberties of the
people. At this time and in the
present emergency, Democracy
means opposition to the tariff, op
position to the force bill, opiosition
to monopoly ; and it means tho
advocacy of equal protection, free
elections, and a fair chance for
every man in the battle of life.
Democracy means "an indissoluble
union of indestructible States,"
bound together by sacred recollec
tions, hallowed associations, mutual
interests and a common destiny.

the policy of his party a policy
which he blindly follows is de
structive of the best interests of
the people ot this district.
Take the tariff. If the people of
this district were a manufacturing
people, theie would be some plausi
bility in the pretence that a pro
tective tariff' would benefit them ;
but everybody knows that the
people of (his district are an agri
cultural people, and the only effect
of a protective tariff' on them is to
take money from their pockets and
put it iu tho pockets of somebody
e'sc. A protective tariff supplies
the deficiency in the profits of the
manufacturers out of tho hard
earnings of the farmers of the
country. Air. Cheatham is in favor
of a protective tariff, aud to that
extent, is a representative ot the
interests of New England aud not
of the South.
Mr. Cheatham is in favor of the
force bill. Leaving out the hun
dred and one. intricate passages in
the measure, tho fact that it holds
free and .peaceful citizens at the
point of the bayonet is enough to
damu it in the heart of every pa-biiiB",,,AL.yV"'8---riUir-t-'
from fiiend; invades tho sanctity
of home-', and precipitates a race
con tlict of whose tdgu ificaiico no
man has dreamed.
How stands Mr. Rogers A
cultivated gentleman, read iu the
literature of the day and educated
in the science of government. He
has had no experience iu congres
sional life, but fron his bo hood he
has studied the history of his coun
try ; knows every rock on which
the .hip of State has struck, and
every whiilpool that threatens to
engulf it. He knows the people,
stands shoulder to .shoulder and
heart to heait with iheni. He is
one of them and their interests in
volve his destiny.
'The party lie represents opposes
a protective tariff, not because of
hostility to New England, but be
is the duty of govern-;
irottct all interests alike
"Equal rights to all ; special privi
leges to none," has been, is and will
forever be, a cardinal doctrine ot
tho Democratic party.
The party Mr. Rogeis represents
is opposed to the force bill as op
posed to republican institutions,
hostile to the right of the
States, and ruinous to tho interests
of the people o( this district end
the countrv at large.
Mr. Rogers would have the kind
iy ielations existing between the
races perpetuated, aud the ma
terial interest of the eon h try ad
uanced nniil theie shall be pleu
teousness and prosperity within our
borders, and contentment, happi
ness and good cheer iu the homes
of our people.

conventien held at Kington on the 3 1

F. M. Simmons and his friends I
From your correspondent's art icle tt e
idea set-ms to be taat Mr. Sunmois
was by bis own seekim; a candidate be
fore the convention. This is a mistake, !
which it is due ti Mr. Simmons to c.ci -rect.
Sometime ago th; gentleman in '
,the public press exprersly withdrew i
his name as a candidate, and the fact 1
that he was before the convention on
ths 3d inttant was the work of l is
friends, who thought him ,the most
available and best Cin :idate for the
Democratic party and whoso nomina
tion they desired.
During the d.iy of tin- convention a
telegram was received fr .tri a friend of
Mr. SimmoDS, who had j.ist h-ui a con
versation with him in ;Nvw lit-me, in
which telegram it wm plainly stated
that Mr. Simmons was not a csind id ate.
Tie Democratic conn ruiou oi Craven
had iurtrueted tbe .!. 1. gme from
Craven to vote for him, and his friends
from other counties uomanded the
right .'in i privilege to vote for him in
