THE I'MVKHSITV OF NOHT11
To the exclusion ol ctlitori.il matter, it'

t Testing letter from President Hattle
He refers to a statement made in our edi

time was attached to sonic one or niort
members ol the faculty. That we ex
plained as due to the influence of tin
French opinions of the day, fosteret
largely by a political sentiment whiel
favored everything French ami hatet
everything Finnish ; for it was at tin
period when grateful feeling fur the aii
yivcti by France in our distress was stil
fresh and warm, and when the memon
of the Inns cruel war for our suhju'a
tion by Filmland was still lively ami bit

Here is President Battle's letter:

Whi.e it is probably true that he partook
of the tree thinking then so prevalent, u
is altogether uuhkclv that lie vciitilatei
such views in the year w lien he was t.
Presbyterian preacher at Chapel Hill.
Alr. Charles W. Harris was proiessoi
only two years, lT'Jo to 1797. He w;u
a worthy mciulier ol the excellent Cabar
rus eouiuv Harris laniilv. He was an in
timate Ineud ol Dr. Joseph Caldwell, auo
It was through his inilueiice that the la I
ter was induced to accept the prolessor
ship of mathematics in the infant Univer
sity, lu Caldwell s eyes luriuciity was a
cnine, und tins intimacy is proof that
Harris' aberrations came alter they
parted. I have read many of Harris' let
ters written from Chapel Hill. They show
him to have lieen an able and well-reao
man, a high-toned gentleman, a taithlui
and inspiring instructor, but extremely
desirous ol escaping Irom the drudgery oi
teaching and tue anxieties of discipline.
But they do not contain expressions im
plying that he held mlulcl opinions. 11 be
bad tuctu 1 urn quite sure that he did not
attempt to win others to his way oi
thinking. There is no charge or sugges
tion that he did. It is impossible to im
agine tbe uncle of tlic late noble Chris
tian gentleman, Shakespeare Harris, per
Ycrting the youth placed under bis
course. 11 he bad not been cut off by
consumption, he would have been a con
spicuous utiure in our legal History. 1 lie
tradition is that he became a faithful
Christian before his death.
Samuel Allen Holmes is charged by Dr.
Caldwell with holding find endeavoring
to propagate principles incompatible
with Christ utility and good citizenship.
From the high character of the accuser
we must conclude that Holmes' head was
turned by the French Revolutionary
ideas, but lie was not allowed long to
poison young minds. He ceased to be
prolessor in 1 "CM. We can only conjec
ture that his resignation was hastened
by Dr. Caldwell's charges. He was quite
young at the lime, obtaining his degree
of A. B. in the following year. I do not
know his subsequent history, except that
he became a minister of the gospel.
1 think it clear that neither Ker nor
Harris' influence on the studenls was
tgainst Christianity, and that Holmes'
vil counsels only continued a few
months. All bad influences ended in the
ast century at the close ol the third year
after the opening of the institution.

On Monday the Slst Congress meets,
mil we w ill endeavor to keep our reail
rs duly infoitncd of the daily proceed
ings of the body. Interest now centres
upon the selection in the republican cau-
iis, which meets to-day, of a candidate
or speaker. While there are several pos
sible candidates, the choice seems to be
larrowed down to Kced. of Maine, and
McKinlcy. of Ohio. Both of them tire
ligh protective tariff men, and as be
ween them the democratic party has
milling to hope or gain. Hut as parti
sans, Mr. McKinlcy is certainly the least
xtrenic of the two, and if the South
lave a preference it would certainly be
or him. He is a manly, truthful, well
balanced and tairtninded man; ami while
icis expected lo sustain the policy of the
larly, we have nunc hope that his
iroadness and justice of views would in
line him to the observation of our con
stitutional rights. On the other hand
ve think Mr. Reed would willingly lend
innsclf the extreme of party measures,
such as are foreshadowed in the pro
mised election laws.
The democrat scan, of course, make only
i nominal tight ; but their purpose to d"
h; it indicates a determination to contest
very step of the majority to take undue
ulvi'iitage of its pow er.
