fact that the old slave has been kit
less conspicuous in criminal annah
than the generation born in freedom
coming to manhood, and in all thing."
his own master.
In relation to these people, we makt
two extracts which will be read will
some interest. The first is from tin
News and Courier of the LMilh:
Itctween these "old faindv servants'
and their old owners the kindest relations
still exist. The bond between them i
nearly the only bond that is left bet wee
the two races, and when it too is (i:
solved, as it wdl be dissolved in a tew
more years, the separation of the whiles
and blacks will be complete ami uual
The old iamily servants have played ai
important part in the history of th
South during the past twentv-tive vears,
and we mav well be thanklul that lhe
did not "disappear" with slaverv, but
remained to sullen the asperities ot
political simple in which they them
selves, sadly enough, have been amoii
the greatest suilerers.
1 he oilier is troni the aslnnirton cor
respondence of the Daltimore Sun;
It is a mailer ol everv-dav common
remark here that the best classes ot tin
colored people in every respect are to hi
found aiiHMiM those who lived in tin
davs of slaverv. These are almost with
out exception jood ciliens, wiio respect
ineiiiselvcs and respect others, and com
maud the regard and eonlidence of tin
community. 1 he two colored actors in
the triple trayedv here last week wen
both under tweutv-onc vears of areata
perhaps nine-lent lis of the despeiadoes
and toughs or thai race have not at
tained manhood. The police ot Wash
in'ton have a most trying time witl
these desperadoes. In making airi,sl
thev run constant risk of the most serious
bodilv injury, as violent resistance is the
rule among those who regard them
selves as heroes, and who are fast coin
inu to be looked upon as such bv their
own people. The colored population ol
ashingion is constantly on the
crease, tor here in one way and anothei
there seems to be no inconsistency in tlu
full supply of bodily comlortsandchronic
idleness. In the meanw hile the old-time
splendid plnuiniions of Maryland and
Yirginia contiguous to Washington art
rapidly becoming wilderness for want oi
adequate labor. If the republican sena
tors would let the South alone tor
while and devote their attention for a
season to the elavnlion and improve
ment ot the negro in ihccommunity right
under their eyes they might perhaps not
hope tor so much political advantage
but thev would at least show some in
dieaiiou of being true to their profes
Senator Blair, who is never happy tin
less lie finds something in which to inter
meddle, is busying himself with the rights
or the wrongs ot the blacks in the South
and in a recent speech at Washington re
minded his colored audience that their
race was so numerous in this country
that their rights could not be denied
them if they demanded them. It might
strike the most indifferent observer that
the District ot Columbia is an unfortun
ate field upon w hich to hoist the banner
of negro rights and negro wrongs with
view of encouragement or example to the
negroes elsewhere ; for it wts in the Dis
trict that the sincerity and consistency of
leading republicans Kdmunds, Morrill,
Sherman, perhaps lilair himself, had am
pie test, resulting in the exposure of allot
them as blatant hypocrites. These men
forceti negro suffrage upon the South
and also established it in the District ot
Columbia, the Mecca of the freed man.
The District became crowded with ne
groes, uud they exercised all their new
rights and privileges with an abandon
that would have been amusing if it had
uot been hurtful. These thiee senators,
above named, perhaps also Mr. Blair
himself, were large projKTty holders in
the District ; and like property holders
elsewhere, notably here in the South,
they rebelled against the power and the
license enjoyed by this large body of non
taxpayers to levy contribution ad libitum
upon those who did have property.
These senators iiad a ready relief not
possessed by the Southern people; and
they applied it promptly and remorse
lessly by dcpiivin.7 the jK-oplt of the Dis-,
trict, white and black alike, punishing!
the innocent as well as the guilty, of the
right of suffrage. And they would never
renew the grant. They have seen with
their own eyes and lelt through their
own pockets what means an irresponsl
Mr. Blair and his confreres might go
farther in profiting by the experience
drawn from observation in Washington
City. The grievances they complain of
as inflicted upon the negroes of the South
generally are not unlike tnose they have
witnessed daily in Washington, for some
of wnicnthey found the summary remedy
by deprivation of suffrage. Some of tbem
have defied all remedies, and would prore
to them the unmanageable problem pres
ent on the much larger area of the whole
South, if the solution of it besought by
the nostrums in vogue among republican i
politicians. What solution has been
reached may be learned by the following j
extract from a Washington letter in the i
Baltimore Sun of November 11. Shak
ing of the affairs of the District, the
Conuress for vear after vear succeeding
the war made the most lavish appropria
tions tor the benefit of the race. Common
hool facilities have been oiiened lothetn
without stint. Thovenjov perfect equality
f civil rights. All atenues of employ
ment, public and private, are tree to
them. Under such auspices the happiest
results might reasonably have, been an
ticipated. The criminal statistics show
whether thev have heen reah.ed. i he
colored population ot the District is
ibout one-third of the whole, while it
furnishes from oO to 70 per cent, of the
criminals. Of nineteen cases of murderin
he last vear the principals in fourteen
were colored. Arrests for earn ing con
tra let. weapons disclose a proportion of
three colored to one white, and in eases
f petit larceny and sneak-thieving this
proportion is maintained. What is more
rplexing in this unhappy disclosure is
the fact that an overwhelming percent -
ige ol the criminal otlenses among the
.olored people are committed by the
voting by those born after the war, w h
never stood under the shadow of slavery .
ind who have had equal advantages ot
every character with the white youth so
far as public provision isconeernetl. Tin
solution of all this opens the widest field
tor inquiry and argument.
Referring again to Mr. Blair's speech.
we rind in one of his remarks he suggest
what might proven dangerous boomer-
ing to his party. lie reminds the
'roes that in four of the Northern States
they hold the balance of power, and
might exercise it to force the South to
;rant alleged denied rights to their
brethren. Mr. Blair assumes very com
placently that this power is to be exer
cised as a matter of course in co-oiera-tion
with the republican party. But
.n reminding the negroes of the
north of their power, he unwit
tingly reminds them that they too
nave wrongs to redress and rights to as
sert; that they too have been denied of
ices and honors and privileges to a tar
greater degree than their brethren of the
South, and that their aspirations can
never rise higher than that of the loyal
pariv voter, obediently submissive to the
rdcrs of his party. Perhaps some ot
rhese days Mr. Blair may find tiiis bal
tnee of power applied w here it is most
unexpected and undesirable.
Those so called senii-barbaious people
.if latin origin in Mexico and South
Vmeriea exhibit vastly more practical
common sense than li e assumedly wiser
and progressive people of the United
Slates in dealing withquestions growing
out of the negro problem. We rush pell
mcll, heller skeiter into all sorts of ven
turesome experiments, hurried along o
wild tide of blind philanthropy or uncal
ctdating sectional hatred. These latins
take a sensible view of a race, if,
is our northern friends, say intrin
sically the equal of the white man,
yet with probation too short to
qualify him to take part in the affairs
of government ; and so Brazil has
attached an educational qualification to
the suffrage to the extent of a knowl
edge of reading and writing, so that the
newly emancipated slave should not be
able by his vote to neutralize that ol'
one who knows with what purpose his
vote is cast. Heie we permit Sambo,
without the knowledge of a letter, or
conception of a priniiple, cast his vote to
cancel the act of a Pnuiel Webster or a
John C. Calhoun. Mexico, desirous of
immigration, and liberal and generous
in the proffers of lauds and privileges, is
yet too wise to ojien the floodgates to
an unchecked torrent of ignorant discon
tented negroes in search of the im
portance and the distinctions they
could never attain at home; and
so the government has limited the
nunilKT of immigrants of that race to be
spread over a nrriod often years; condi
tional also upon the good moral char
acter and industrious habits of the im
migrants. In this action both Brazil
and Mexico display wise caution, a char
acteristic totally wanting in the states
men of the north, who would ad
vance the negro to the highest position,
provided always that he exercise all his
rights and immunities at the South.

Lynn conies home to us in a more per
sonal way than any that has preceded it
for almost everyone in the country, man

Lynn. Long time ago with that happy-
sagacity the New Unglander has to turn
location and conditions to advantage,
and also to avail himself of certain local
personal instincts and aptitudes, the
place become devoted to the business of
shoe making. Voung and old, male and
female, stuck to the last: and in the
olden time nearlv every house in the
place was a shoe shop. The excellence of
the work and the abundance of the out
put found demand all over the country.
Hand work gave place largely to ma.
chine work upon its general adoption ;
and probably at the time of the recent
fire no place ill the world held as high a
rank as the seat of shoe manufacture as
Lynn. It was the specialty of the place,
the foundation of all its fortunes. The
population had probably reached fifty
thousand, and it must have been a pros
perous and wealthy place to have been
subjected to a loss counted by millions.

We haven't changed our
days; not because we had
nothing to say, but just be
cause we haven't had the
time. Our store has been full
of peoloevery day. our trade
has never been so largo, and
we are glad to be able to say
that not withstanding the
influx of new stores, and the
large stocks of goods, Ihe
"Hig Uacket Store" retains
all its old friends and adds
new ones daily. The reason
isjilain and easy of under-standiikg-.
Wo warrant every
thing we sell to bo as repre
sented, or ire ffivo you buck

anybody in Ashevillo. and can
easily undersell anyone. Wo

people wonder how we get
them. That doesn't matter;
we have them, and they are
yours with a good title when
you bring thecash. Ribbons.
Tips, Pirds and Wings, we
have always sold atlessthan
half of Millinery Store prices,
and carry three times as
largo stocks. While our line
of Press (ioods isnotaslarge
as some, what we have has
boon bought at such prices
that we can easily sell them
lower than ol hers, and still
make some money on them.
Hats. Handkerchiefs, (iloves,
Stockings (fast black and
cheaper grades), Quilts, Plan
kets, Shawls, Mats, Pugs,
Trunks. Valises, Hand Pags,
Hoods, Caps, Furs, Curtains,
Polos, Shades, are among
our leaders. No well posted
citizen of Ashcville buys any
of these things without pric

the country people and those
who live in near-by towns en
joy the same privilege. We
sold more Christinas goods,

than any other store in Ashe

We want you to see what a
