The State Ticket.
We'publish elsewhere in this issue a
condensed report from the News and Couri
erof the proceedings of the State Demo
'oratic convent ion. The nomination forG over
nior is the strongest that. could possibly
have been made in tlieState. lie) is poiua
lar with all classes tand colors, anti will
hardly meet with any serious opposition to
his election, Ile has been Superintendent
of Education since 1870, and the aIblc,
zealous and impiartial manner in which I c
has administered tlo nitfairs of tle oflice
has made hin almost as popular with the
colored people as heo is with the whites.
Several of the leading Republicans Ihave alI
ready endorsed his tnotmat iona and declaired
their intent ion to vote for him . The bal
ance of the ticket as a whaole is a good one.
The name of Ellison Capers would give
tone and character to any ticket to say no
thing of the other worthly genitlemnen asso
ciaited on thec ticket with hian. The defeat
ed candidates for Governor, Generals Ken
ntedy and lUratton, are good anid trute menm,
but an impressioni haid gone abroad thaat
t ho friends of each had adea uap a slate
with the names of iheir respective favorihes
on it, and were persistently endeavoring to
keep all other candidates out of the field,
so that thec race should he narrow ed dlownl
between the t wo. Whiethaer thaere was any
foundation for this or nout, it miattered veay
little since the imnpression land gained a
strong foot-hold amtongst the voters of the
State. The nomniation of eithter would
have met witha opposition froam withaout and
would haive caused disseti ons wvithiun thec
ranks of the party, that~ amight have provean
dangerous to the continuanace of good gov
ernent in thec State. Thec nomiamtion of
Thomupsotn has healed aill dissent ionas in outr
own ranks, killed off anythaing like a for'
midable opposition fromn the outside, and
thaus lthUres a complete Demtocratic victory
The Counity Canvass
Pursuant to thae appointmnent made by
the County Executive Committee, the cani
didates addressed the people at thas place
on last Saturday. The mneet ing was hteld
In thec Court Ilouse, and there was a large
attendance, and everything passed off qjui
etly and pleasantly. Most of the candidates
were present. Soate of them declined to
speak, others amerely arose and anniounced
their eandidlocy, whtile sev eral made capit al
speeches, all sending forth sentimients of
patriotism and devotion to the Democratic
party. Mr. Jeriamish Looper, a Republi
can candidate, by inivittion, made a spee:
It was the samet as delivered by h imt ait
Cent ra', and had a good effect towards so
lidifying thte Democrats, if such a thIting
was necessaey, and alienating a good nany
of thae cohot ed voters from haim. le de
ntountced thea Democrats generally, anid ita
particular for votinag for thea "nigger'' Mar
tin 4. Delaney for Lieuatenanat Governor in
18'74. His argumnent s, if such thIey couldi
be called, were completely answered by
the Democratic speakers whto followed haim.
Mr. Samuel Brown, one of our oldest citi
sens, who is not a canididat c by the way,
arose fronm hais seat. in the auadienice anid
said, in reply to the assertion of Mr Loop
or that the colored people had not been
properly treated by the Democrats, that lae
knew a Republicani in this County wvho lad
turned off a colored man because lae had
exercised his raghet to vote the Democratic
ticket. No Demoerat had done this, but they
had always been te frienids of thae colored
people, while Rtepuablicans laud alwaiys per
secuted themi when thecy dated to exercis<
the rights of a freemnan. This br ougha
down the houses and rousing cheers wer<
given for Mr Brown. We would like ti
give a syntopuis of all the speeches but
apace forbids. We trust our people wil
turn out to meet thae candIidates at. all ala
appointments, and hear thtem speak. lth
