TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
At a called meeting of Tuscarora Lodge, No.
122, of F. and A. Masons, held in the Masonic
Hall, at Oxford, Granville County, on the
lltb. day of November, 1866, the following
proceedings were had :
The committee appointed to prepare suita
ble resolutions on the death of Bro. Solomon
H. PniLPOTT. submitted the following report
which was unanimously adopted :
On the 19th September, 1864, at the bat
tle of Winchester, fell Solomon Harmon Phil
phott, in the twenty-fourth year of his age,
in defence of the Southern cause. Upon the
breaking out of the war, like thousands of
others, " at the call of his mother State, he
took his life in his hand, went forth to battle
and to die." He was a native of this County
and a member of this Lodge, a good soldier,
an excellent citizen, a modest gentleman, and
a worthy Mason.
Paternal affection has sought out the grave
of the soldier-son and brought the remains
to his cherished home, with the pious pur
pose of depositing them in their native earth,
alongside of his compatriots in arms, who
had preceded him in the last journey of life,
there to repose until the resurrection morn,
when the Grand Master of the Universe shall
re-unite their various parts with his disem
bodied spirit in harmonious union, and sum
mons them to his Supreme Lodge above.
where no more shall be heard the clank of
arms and the din ot battle; no more of
strife and struggle ; no more the sound of
the gavel, save to call the trorthy from labor
to perpetual refreshment around His eternal
throne, "where the wicked cease from troul-
hng and the weary are at rest." Whi-refore,
Jtesolced, That while we deeply lament iu
the deuth of our brother, the loss to the com
munity of a good citizen, and to this Lodge
and Masonry of a worthy member, yet we
submit with cheerfulness to the will of Him
"who doeth all things well."
lleolced, That we tender our sincere con
dolence to the family of our deceased brother
in their sad bereavement.
Resolved, That we will attend in a body
the funccal sermon of our deceased brother,
to-day, and from thence will proceed to inter
his remains with the usual Masonic rites.
Jtenolced, That these proceedings bespread
on the minutes of the Lodge and a copy ot
them lie sent to the family of the deceased ;
and also, a copy to one of the newspapers of
Raleigh, with the request that the papers of
that City will publish them.

Homicide. In this city yesterday morn
ing, between six ana seven o ciock. an unior-
tunate dispute arose between Nicholas Carr
and Willie P. Keith, who reside on Sixth,
between Hanover and Brunswick streets,
which resulted in the death of Willie P.
Keith at the hands of Carr.
The circumstances as in evidence are as fol
Keith and Carr live on adjoining lots. Or
yesterday Keith went out, axe in hand, to
knock down the fence separating the lots.
Carr then appeared and ordered- him to de
sist. Keif h replied that the fence was on his
own property and that he would do as he
pleased with his own. Carr then denounced
him with a curse and went into bis house
and returned with a pistol in his hand, pre
sented. He approached Keith, when a bro
ther of the deceased, Israel F. Keith, fearing
that there would be bloodshed, threw him
self in between them. Carr then snapped
his pistol at Keith, and in return Keith struck
him in the face with the axe tf-hich he had
lifted into a position of self-defense as Carr
approached. Carr then continued, Israel F.
Keith being between him and the deceased,
to make efforts to get a shot by shifting his
position. The wife of Willie P. Keith came
out and endeavored to reach Carr, who was
still presenting his pistol, and saw the fatal
shot fired. Keith was killed instantly.
A jury of inquest returned a verdict in ac
cordance with the facts.
The matter was investigated subsequently
by James Shackelford, Esq., Deputy Special
Magistrate; and after the question as to
whether the killing was murder or aianslaugh
ter was ably argued by Hon. R. S. French
and Jno. L. Holmes, Esq., for the prosecution
and Hon. Geo. Davis and M. London, Esq.,
for the defense, the court decided to admit
Mr. Carr to bail in the sum of $1,500. Mr.
Carr sustains a good reputation, and has not
the character of being a violent man, so far
as we have been able to learn.
We have given an epitome of the evidence,
as the whole is too lengthy for publication ;
in the main it will be found to be entirely
correct. Wilmington Dispatch.
A correspondent of the Boston Post illus
trates, as follows, Douglas Jerrold's remark
able quickness of wit :
One evening in a mixed company we were
playing a game to test our knowledge of
Shakespeare. Each person was to name
some object, it mattered not what, to the
guest next to him, and the latter under pain
of a forfeit was to give some quotation from
the poet to illustrate it. To Jerrold was
given the word , tread-mill, . and "he hardly
hesitated a moment before replying ia the
well-known language of Lear, 'Down, thou
climbing sorrow 1' . . -

Something must bedone, and" quickly
done, or Peace will be more disastrous to the
social weal even than War. Sentinel. -
O Well, why ia not something done ? Tone
faction has supreme control in North-Caro-'
lina. The Union men are despised and pow
erless.,, JThey are not responsible for our
disastrous social" condition. .They are not
responsible for that flagrant defiance of the
will of the nation, and that rampant dis
unionism which, in effect, prolongs - the war,
and not only keeps capital and enterprise out
of the State, but actually sends thousands of
our best citizens in despair to better their for
tunes in distant lands. It is your selfishness,
it is your stubbornness, it is your treason, it
is your want of faith which you pledged in
1 865, that is completing the ruin of the State.
But you are all well-to-do in Israel. Your
favorite leaders, with treason on their tongues
and hatred to the Union in their hearts, are
filling the offices, and handling the money,
and devising schemes for the future for their
own especial benefit. As long as you are
permitted to do this you do not wish to re
turn to the Union. You feel that you would
lose all this by returning, and so you want to
remain as you are. But the people have a
deep interest in this business. Granted.
But what do you care about the people, but
to gull and fleece them, and ride them as so
many pack-horses ? When they wince, or
show a disposition to have their own way,
you cry nigger ! nigger ! as you did in 1860,
and thus, by inflaming their passions, you
still keep your seats. But a day of reckon
ing is near at hand, and thank God for it !
The President, who has heretofore befriended
you from the hope that you were loyal, and
that you would do justice to his Union
friends, will at length turn upon you in his
wrath ; and the Congress, seeing your con
temptuous rejection of mild terms of restor
ation, will measure out to many of you that
justice which you ought to have received in
1865. It is conning. We shall soon have
permanency in government and the most
thorough social o.'fder. The hand of right
eous power will prevent you from prolong
ing the war, as you are now doing. Treason
will indeed be made odious, and loyalty will
be respected andl honored. The State will
then prosper, and we shall have a new era of
good feeling. People will pour into the State
instead of pouxiii g out of it. Every interest
will flourish. T'jis may not be very " quick
ly" done, but it is as certain as that the sun
will rise to-morr w. The interests of one mil
lion of people, v hite and black, must not be
further trifled with and injured to gratify the
ambition, the sei'fishness, and the malice of a
few disunion leaders.
The Cons'citmtional Amendment.
The secession organs throughout the South
keep up the hue and cry that the amendment
degrades those who are called upon to ratify
it. They assume, not without color of rea
son, we admit, that tne nandtut ot men
whom the amendment excludes from office
constitute the South, and in the name of this
small class they protest they will never con
sent to this dishonor.
Now, if this proscribed class be half as
patriotic as its noisy champions aver it to
be, its members will stand aside stay away
from the polls and allow the great majority
of the people who are not proscribed to vote
upon the question. They will, in this way,
avoid the imputation of voting to degrade
themselves. If Congress bad embodied in
the amendment a clause excluding the same
class from the polls, as well as from the right
to bold office, they could not have raised the
objection that they are called upon to vote
their own degradation. So that, after all, it
is the lenity of Congress towards this class
which constitutes the groxamen of their op
position to the proposed amendment. Con
gress excludes them from the privilege of
holding office, as it had a right to do under
the circumstauces, but it has not excluded
them from the polls, as it might also have
done, and is, therefore, guilty of intentional
insult to them I These fastidious gentlemen
can easily avoid the insult by refusing to go
to the polls, and the mass of the people can
then settle the question, by consenting to
return to the Union on the terms proposed.
As we have heretofore said, the President
is more severe on those of this class whom
he refuses to pardon, than Congress. He not
only excludes them from office, but forbids
them to vote, or even to make or receive ti
tle to property.
More Treason I
A correspondent of the Sentinel, the
gan of Gov. Worth, says :
"The Union for which our Yankee friends
fought is hopelessly broken. The govern
ment is gone, tor which they struggled.
The Federal Flag proclaims a lie (so-called.)
Why flaunt in gaping faces these thir
ty six States ? Why spread the falsehood
across the streets ? Is it not notorious that
ten of those stars have no business there ?
If the stars " ha-ve no business there," then
we are simply a conquered Territory, and
Congress has a right to govern us accor
dingly. The flag proclaims no lie. It protects,
day and night, the infu mous traitor who thus
insults it. It waves bere it waves in all
lands and on every sea, a true flag. It car
ries no lie on its glorious folds.
The traitor who wrote this communication
for the Sentinel, and the traitors who pub
lished it, will find to their cost that the gov
ernment is not gone that the Union is not
" hopelessly broken." With them, the wish
is only father to the thought. Nothing
would please them better than to see the
Union hopelessly broken, and the flag of the
stars and stripes cast to the earth as an ac
But the Union stands. It will continue to
stand, the last hope of freedom on earth.
It will yet succor and protect its own, and
it will scourge its enemies, the traitors here
at home, with a whip of scorpions. The
poor, contemptible traitor who wrote this
communication was among the most abject
in 1865, when the federal forces reached this
City. He was ready to " eat dirt" for him
self and all his . neighbors. Now,, he is so
bold in his treason that he proclaims the
Union hopelessly gone, and the flag of the
ountry a u flaunting lie.1"

This same man, who is thus " scouted and
denounced," was kind to such as the Editors
of the Sentinel while he was Provisional
Governor. He did every thing in his power
to mitigate the sad condition of many who
were then apparently loyal, but who are now
defiant rebels. He procured, as a gift from
the President, at least two hundred thousand
dollars worth of property, to relieve our peo
ple of the burdens of taxation ; he devoted
himself incessantly to the public service ; he
treated all who approached him justly and
kindly ; and aside from the salary he receiv
ed from the federal government, he never
drank even a glass of ice-water at the public
expense. He will not say whether be has
ever received any thanks from many whom
he thus served ; but he repeats, he rather
courts than deprecates denunciations at the
hands of those who are not well-affected to
wards the government.
The Missisippi commissioners called upon
the President on the 14tb, having previously
sent to him the resolution passed by the Leg
islature of their State in relation to Mr. Da
vis. They also presented an accompanying
letter from Gov. Humphrey, based on the
idea that there will be no trial, but he says
while they do not seek to screen him from
this, they believe that his imprisonment is
not necesary to secure his presence when de
sired for the trial, and can only be attended
with fatal results to his health, and that the
ends of justice will be readied by admitting
him to bail or parole. The President, it is
said, gave them a courteous reception, and
promised to take the subject into considera
tion. " Only this, and nothing more." The
President could not have done less than he
The Governor of Alabama, in his recent
message, after a full review of the whole sub
ject, says of the proposed constitutional a-
" I am decidedly of the opinion that this
amendment should not be ratified. The first
section embodies a principle dangerous to the
liberties ot the people- ot the whole country,
and is as applicable to New York and Mas
sacbusettsas Alabama. The third section
would bring no possible good to the repre
sented States, while it would reduce those
unrepresented to utter anarchy and ruin.
We are sincerely desirous of complete restor
ation to the Union. We want conciliation,
harmony and national tranquility. We feel
we have given every evidence of honest pur
pose to conform in good faith to the condi
tion of things surrounding us.
Alabama is as true to-day to the constitu
tion and laws of the general government as
any State of the Union. Under the internal
revenue law tax on cotton the people of this
State are now paying a revenue to the gov
ernment of nearly $10,000,000 a year In the
enactment of these laws we had no voice.
The amendment was proposed when nearly
one-third of the States were unrepresented,
and all its features are aimed at the States
thus excluded. The ratification of such an
amendment, under such circumstances, can
not accomplish any good to the country, and
might bring irretrievable disaster."
At the Conference of the Methodist Church
of this State recently held at Fayetteville,
the change in the name of the Church, "Epis
copal Methodist," was adopted with only
three dissenting voices. The proposition to
chan;-e the Constitution of the Church so as
to admit lay delegates in the annual and gen
eral Conferences, was adopted by a vote of
49 to 23. The former is not a material, but
the latter, is a radical change. It remains to
be seen whether it will be promotive of the
unity and best interests of the Church.
