THE IMCENOURV SHKPARU.
Mr. Juscphus Dnniols, editor of the
State Chronicle, was one of the delegates
from this State ,j the session of the Na
tional Editorial Convention at Iietroit.
lie was a listener to that infamous ad
dress of Elliot F. Shepard, editor of the
New York Mail and Express, that ad
dress so inappropriately styled "Edito
rial Philosophy;" for such philosophy
like nil other philosophies, implies, and
ought to enforce, calm, impartial consid
eration of facts and conditions, politic
deference to the opinions of others, ami ju
dicious alignment to surroundingciicum
slances. Shepard did not have the sense
to recognize the fact that in a press con
vention he stood on recognized neutral
ground; that, in entering its precincts,
all the armor and weapons of political
warfare and sectional strife were taken
olf and left at the door of entrance, ami
that within all was to he fraternal har-
monv and cordiality. He catered, on the
contrary, as one of his Kansas heroes
might have done, with the liilile in one
hand, a Share's rifle in the other: with a
text of Scripture on his lips and with the
Devil's counsel liurning in his heart.
Mr. Daniels account is the only one
we have seen from anv of our returned
delegates. It confirms all we havclKlbic
read about the infamous, untimely ad
dress, bringing it all together inauintclli
gent, connected way. It shows how in-
appropriate and offensive tl.e obtrusion
of unfricndlv sectional sentiments must
have lx.ni to the rest of the assemblage
representing every State in the Union
and how prompt and spontaneous was
the disapprobation. It would be difficult
to find in the most venomous of cam
paign sccchcs moreof malevolence, more
of injustice, more of distortion of facts
more of ocrversion of sentiment, more of
attribution of dishonest purpose than in
this arraignment of the South, anil th
ascription to it of ulterior hostile pur
pose. It might he dismissed as the ma
licious diatrilie of an ill bred, vulgarman
or of an insane politician under stress ti
preach his bad doctrines every where, in
season and out of season. Perhaps the
general expression of indignation was
sincere; undoubtedly it was so in relation
to the violation of courtesy. Iiut, as t
the policy and the principles enunciated
it mav be that the condemnation was for
"speaking out in meeting" too indis
creetly and too inappropriately. There is
a strong similarity between Shcpard's
blurted out candor of hate, and the more
dclilierate utterances of many leading
Republican journals to suggest a real cor
rcsDondence of thought and purpose; to
assume a deep latent hostility to the
government on the part of the South, to
ascrilw to it dclilierate hostility and in
justice to the negro, to recognize the ne
cessitv of outside interference, and to
shaic sentiment and action toitsenforce
ment. The restlessness, the violence of
the negroes in some parts of the South is
not natural, spontaneous, or for sufficient
causes. It is extraneous in its origin, fo
mented pnd encouraged to deep ulterior
purpose. To this extent only, apart from
its ill bred inappropriateness, has Sheji-
iird's address any significance.
Happily Shcpard's sentiments, though
unhappily so largely prevalent and so
formidably materialized, are not univer
sal ; and whenjthe calm reflecting or busi
ness mind of the North is seriously di
rected to the direful results of the ruinous
policy, a halt will be called. As we have
before said, the South will not suffer alone
m tne reckless policy so insanely lore-
On the subject of a wiser course, the
New Orleans Picayune says;
"Lookingto justice and fairness from
our Northern fellow-citizens, we hail
with extreme satisfaction expressions
like that published elsewhere from an in
fluential journal like Haqier's Weekly, en
titled: A wrcat Ouestion. In tin
South civilization, rational lilerty, and
the conservation of society are assailed
by the most destructive and disorganiz
ing forces. Shall all that Christianized
and civilized man holds dear be given up
to anarchism and savagery bolstered up
by statutes: virtue, honor, truth and
patriotism are not matters of mere legal
enactment, but of immortal principle.
Iet the law perish when it would seek to
suppress or destroy them.
We are always proud at the illustra
tions of the resources and progress of
our good old State. The time was, and
we remember it with mortifiication
when our people bowed with meekness
to the verdiet of other Stntes, accepted
with humility the soubriquet of Rip Van
Winkle, and made no effort to retrieve
their character. So far from it, they
acted as if their State was plague strick
en, as if the best thing to be done was to
get away from it as soon as possible.
and as far away. And so the tide of
flight or immigration set in about the
year 1832; and Alabama, Mississippi,
Arkansas, Florida and North Georgia
became strong, populous and flourishing
ont of the wasted strength of North Car
olina. The tide has had its ebb; and
since the war, so far from continued out
flow, it is pouring in upon us. But apart
from accession from without, the intelli
gence of the people has been awakened,
their energies aroused, and they wake up
to find, that instead of being the least
desirable, the most barren, the least pro
gress! re, the least promising of all the
Southern States, it has proven to be the
most varied in its resources, and offer
ing the richest rewards for energy, intelli
gence and capital.
We take great pleasure in making the
following extract from the Wilmington
No one who will notice the geographi

from the Atlantic wcstwiMcl a distance

a railroad to run from the Northeastern

It puts her in a position to become
eventually a great railway highway, and
guarantees quick and cheap transit for
the products of her fields, forests, mines,
shops and factories. With rivcrsnaviga

The burning of the Court House at
Carthage, Moore coin. tv. noted in our
telegraphic columns a few days ago,
recalls one curious fact which we have
never seen mentioned, but which will be
verified by any one who has ever visited
hat place. The Court House was placed
in the space made by the intersection of
two, or rather four broad streets laid
ut with direct reference to the points of
the compass, lfroad passage ways lay
through the court house opening upon
-ill of these streets. Entering from the
oast, the visitor makes his way to the
lour through deeu sand ; emerging Iroin
the west door, he steps out upon a red
.'lay Soil, in wet weather, into deep red
'mid. In other words, the Court House,

-ormer facts ; the sand hills and the pine

rocky soil, the dry land.
The serious, perhaps lata, illness of
Sunset Cox will create idespread ititcr
:st and solicitude. He is one of the tew
public men, who, eminently able, is also
-inincntly beloved and admired. In bis
composition there is strange admixture
if diverse elements, lie seems to unite
the profundity of the statesman, the ac
complishments ol the scholar, the imag
ination ol the poet, the eloquence of the
orator, the pathos of the hiunoiist, the
vivacity of the wit, with the geniality of
the man ol the world and the abandon
of the school lioy;a combination that
commands him respect, ensures his influ
ence, and w ins him friends. His is one
of those names that will not be erased
from current history without the protest
if very genuine regret.
We do hope to learn that he has salcly
passed the ordeal of his malady.
We. in common with many others in
this city, have received a circular, the
'ibject ol which is to bring to notice the
.'act that Victoria C. Woodhall is a can

States at the next quadrennial election.
It won't do; "vainly the fowler spreads
liis net in the sight of any bird;"
not even when it is baled with
the chaff, that the husband of
Mrs. Vie "is descended in a direct line
from Mrs. Dandridge, the mother of Mar
tha Washington." Petticoat govern
ment is "to the manner born" in ling
land where the feminine aspirant has
passed her later life. She may rather as
pire to succeed her Hritish namesake on
the imperial throne than become the suc
cessor of Mr. Harrison.
The determination of those two Ceor
ia duelists to meet and fight, anil Un
equal ilclcrminulion of the authorities of
the several States in which they had
sought a meeting ground, is very grati
fying proof that the duello has lost its
dd prestige, and is coming very near to
be recognized at its real vahie as niur-
ler, or the attempt at murder. When
it is so treated by public opinion, and so
punished by the authorities, we shall
hear no more of it. It w as resorted to
save from shame and vindicate wounded
honor; it never brought with it any
thing but death, sorrow and undying re
