. Mr. Jno. 0. White, county superin
tendent of public instruction, gives notice
this morning that tha fall session of tho
Alexander county touchers' instituto will
bo held in tho Thirteenth street school-
house, on tho 3d, 4th and 6th of October
next. If this session is not an improve
ment on tho last, wo would ndvisothat the
institute fiddle and bow bo hung up and
and the shovel nnd boo laid down.
But, be it understood, that the fault of fail
ure did not lie with Mr. Wbito, who has
been untiring in bis efforts to mako tho
institute a success.

Tho colored republicans, who nro un
der the domination of tho radical cliquo
of this city, are anxious to know who Mr.
Miller, tho republican candidate for coun
ty treasurer, is. The effort that has been
mndo to induco thorn to behove he is a
black man' has signally fulled.
Jacob Yost, Esq., who was in town
last weok, endeavored to attract attention
by officiously dipping his oar into tho
stream of our local politics which is a
metaphor hard to beat; but ho was unsuc
cessful. His ugliness attracted more at
tention than an honest radical offlco-holdcr
would or a flvo-loggcd cow.
The republicans of tho city hnvo en
tered into a compact with Mr. Miller, their
candidate for county trcasu "or, to "puh '
him in soason and out of season. Ho is, as
tho flour quoters hnvo it, ' white wheat
family;" or, as tho whoat quotors say,
"choice amber;" or, intholanguago of tho
corn man, " whito, In sacks, delivered ;"
or, to uso fthay phruso, "cholco timothy,
delivered;" or, as the buttor dealer would
exproas it, "extra gilt-edged." Thoy novor
quote him a " low super," "super," "whito
mixed on p. t.," "red top," or "ordin

fallen into ovil company, nnd, like Dog

ed. Ho says that ho has fired his last shot.
Foor fellow; I am sorry, for I was in
hopes that I would get to show the commu
nity what a low, lying nigger ho is; but
sinco ho has cried "enough" I shall not go
down on him too heavy. Ho donies the
charge which I brought against him about
voting for Mr. Webb, and telling Mr.
Harroll that ho voted for him. Now, Mr,
Editor, a man that will toll ono lio will
toll another. I do say yot, that he 'told
others that ho voted for Mr. Webb,
for ho told Mr. Samuel Moody, n colored
man of truth, that ho did voto for Mr.
Wobb. So, now, I hnvo proof that ho hns J
lied, and I wish him to provo that ho has
not. Then I am willlnc to strike hands
with brothor Bubo nnd join tho "truo-
blucs." Ho has acknowledged that ho did
toll Wobb that ho voted for him, nnd
told Ilarroll tho samo thing; but still
ho don't want pcoplo to look at it in that
light for fenr of injuring his character.
That cannot bo dono hero in Cairo, for
overybody knows that a rotten egg cannot
bo spoiled. Ho says, again, thnt I am not
a fooman worthy of his steel or any asso
ciate of mine. This is ono truth for Rube.
for I novcr put myself with bis kind of
fifteenth amendment chaps. Uisanklo is
too near thomlddlo of his foot for mo.
Ho says that ho is happy to know that I
do my own thinking. I am also happy to
know it myself, but would bo bettor satis
fied if ho would tell mo what friend ho
hns found to think for him, so thnt I
might get a squint at him, for I know
thnt, If ho is a whito man, ho is a horrible
looking cuss, nnd, if n darkey, that hq don't
