BOMB AND DEMOCRAT.
J. P. STK&NG, Editor and Proprietor.
CHARLOTTE, N. C.
Friday, October 21, 1881.
President of the U. S. Senate. '

President of the Senate, as was supposed .
permanently, when the Republicans pass
ed a resolution displacing Senator Bayard
and putting in David Davis, (Independ
ent) he refusing to vote gave them the
majority. It is more than -probable that
on the assembling of Congress , next De
cember the Republicans will oust Davis
and put in one of their own party. - We
trust such may be the case and Davis
given to see the infamy of his act. It was
supposed he had some honor ; but he had
his price and is now disgraced forever.
Mr. Davis as was expected filled all the
committee vacancies with Republicans.
On taking the chair; Mr. Davis spoke as
Senators: The honor just conferred
comes as the seat which I now occupy in
this body did, without any expectation on
my part. If it carried any party obliga-
tionsl should be constrained to decline
this high compliment. I do not accept it narti " fn a -T- TV susoended till next term- Robert Booth S ."rr . f ' the Worcester Unabridged Dictionary,

The Baltimore Gazette, speaking of
Mr. Davis's sell out to the Republicans
"The act of the Republicans in deposing
Mr. Bayard and electing to the .Presidency
of the Senate Judge Davis, of Illinois, will
brand with infamy the corrupt leaders of
tne iteponcan party. 10 is anoiner nan
deeolv and firmlv bv the men who stole
the PrpRidencv. and who linhlnshinfrl v

for the vote of the Virginia traitor. What-

awav now that he has nermitted himself
to be used as a pliant tool in the hands of I
the Republicans and descended to the low
level 01 ftlahone. He knew that without
hi9 vote Mr. Bayard could not have been
unseated, and as there was every reason
to believe that Judge Davis would not
lend his vote to elect Mr. Anthony or any
other Republican, they with characteristic
cunning shamelessly offer him the 'prize
in the lottery of assassination,' as Mr. Ed
rounds terras it ; and he, - forgetful of his
honer and manhood, accepts, and, like
Mahone, exchanges his independence ior
the comparatively paltry office.
The Atlanta Exposition.
Some idea of the vast and comprehen
sive character of the Atlanta International
Cotton Exposition, may be had from the
following statistics :
That the actual floor space covered by
exhibitors amounts to twenty acres of
ground, and that every foot oi this is cov
ered, and that more could be covered if it
was possible to get it.
That the circumference of all the build
ings is eleven miles, p That is if a person
were to walk around each one of the
buildings he would have to walk eleven
miles before he was through.
A hat there are six miles ot steam pipes
that are used to heat the various build
lhat there are hve miles ot sewerage
pipes used to drain the buildings and
That there are eight million feet of lum
ber used in the erection of all the build
ings on the grounds.
These facts will suggest to the most un
willing observer that the Atlanta Interna
tional Cotton Exposition is a big thing in
every sense of the word.
Senator David Davis has appointed
Mr. James E. Harvey of Washington, his
Private Secretary. Mr. Harvey is a cor-
resnondent of the New York Sun. which
position he has held for many years. He
is a Democrat, which fact, most probably,
Davis thought would be accepted as a
remnant of his neutrality, as he has now
espoused the Republican cause.

About Falsely-packed Cotton.

n - n I
uauuiuS wtiuu is as easy, no aouot, as
sanuing sugar, but this charge does not
apply to; only a few packers, and they
ought to be exposed by name. There is, I
we venture to add, no one item of export
that is as free from manipulating to in-
crease . the weight and thereby enhance
the price, when it leaves first hands, as
cotton. AVe trust some measures will be
taken to ferret out these isolated cases and
have them hrontrht. home tn. th. :itv
reputation of being prepared with
extraneous substances to increase the
weight, and to avoid a like reputa-
tion, the Cotton Exchange should unite

farmers from this suspicion.
The Importance of correct Spelling.
m r . ...... I
I hk successiui contestant in tne spelling
. ' a
match at the State Fair, Henry V. Rice,
out of a list of one hundred and twenty
words did not miss one. The second best,
Sol. G. Rosenbaum, missed only three
out of one hundred and eighteen. These
youthg are attendants at the Raleigh Male
Academy, which: speaks highly for
its thorough and practical mode of
teaching. There is nothing that shows
the early neglect of some of our most emi
g . . , , Bnellin.
filhng prominent-positions whose chirogra
pby and dictation, are faultleps, but whose
beauty is marred by bad spelling. There
is not that attention paid to it in our
schools that the subject deserves, as being
of incalculable use to the pupil. We do
not think the matter receives that atten-
tion and study now that was given it in
olj 6Chool" days, when to read and
spell constituted an education, and whose
interest in the study was creatly in-
creased by frequent spelling matches.
We wish the speller was given a wider
berth in our schools, followed up in some
form through the whole scholastic course,
as many ot oui pupils will see cause to
regret its early banishment from their list
of studies. Few schools embrace spelling
and punctuation as one of the studies after
5eing promoted to the higher grades and
unless gifted with a very retentive mem
ory their earlier lessons are forgotten and
many a Belles-Lettres graduate is a poor
speller in consequence.

but carries on His work." So is it ever.
We reverence this wisdom. We bow to

are subdued nnder a sense of infinity 1
While we stand with uncovered head in
the presence of the Disposer of events,
and bow onr hearts in profoundest grief,
we recognize in it tbe special providence
of God, who is too wise to err and too
eood to be unkind." Thus endeavoring
to submit to the supreme decision ol the
Head of the Church, and to acquiesce in
all the developments of His providence,

the whole Church, while expressing our

There have been fine rains in this iection this

r5n work. : While there hava been killimr
fjosts in the central part of the State two weeks
eeetation about here has scarcely been
nipped or colored by frost.
A workman, W. A. Sing, in Mr. Josiah As
bury's planing mill, had his hand nearly severed
from the wrist by a buzz saw. The saw caught
his wrist band which drew the arm also. He
will be detained from work some time. i
The Almanac sellers or drummers : on' the
streets are about as big a nuisance as the boot
blacks in New Yo:k. 1 ,
Considering the very dry and hot Summer and
Fall, the health of Charlotte has been remarka
bly good, equal to any Mountain city or town.
' ' Sheriff Mays, of Alexander county, considering
it unsafe to keep the murderer of Miss Thomp
son, . H. Dockery, in the Alexander jail, or
even in the jail of any adjoining county, brought
the prisoner to thw city to be committed to jail
here. It was through Dockery's confession that
Church, one of the murderers, was lynched, and
" " - W
it is thoueht his testimony in Court will serious-
ly implicate two others. One, Adams, is under
bond to appear at Court now. Evidently 'it was
the friends of these that lynched Church.
The notorious female Minstrels are advertised
to appear in Wilmington at an early day. There
is an Ordinance in this city against permitting
such vulgar performances in the Opera House or
elsewhere in Charlotte.
The Hornet's Nest Riflemen of this city,
about 30 in number, went to the Yorktown Cen
tennial celebration, under command of E. F.
Youngs ; .-,
gMr. Julius Setzer, grocery dealer on Trade
street, says be went to sleep in the back room of
his store on Sunday night, leaving the back door
open, and when he awoke he found his trunk
broken open and about $500 in money stolen.
No rogue is fool enough to miss such an oppor
tunity as that to steal.

men in the neighborhood followed and captured
the negro eight miles from Mrs. Godfrey's house.
He was brought back to Union and taken before
Miss Godfrey but she could not identify him as
the room was dark. He was placed in jail where
he soon confessed the crime. When it became
known a party of three hundred men, one hun
dred of whom were blacks, took him and hung
him to a tree near the scene of the crime. After
the crowd was satisfied he was dead they dis
persed, leaving the fiend banging. The party
was composed of the best citizens of Union
county, and many of the black people insisted he
should be burned. Miss Godfrey is 83 years of
age, of unblemished character and her condition
is quite critical, as she was seriously hurt The
negro was indifferent and said he was willing to
