What a ridiculous farce such contests
are. w bo supposes that the House ot
Representatives would unseat their speak
er? Such an act would break the heart of
the Sam Randall haters.
ISf The Democrats of Pennsylvania
fixed up a compromise tariff plank which
fits very well in the platform. It will be
la difficult matter to fix a national platform
on the lariti and iuternal revenue ques
tions upon which all Democrats can
stand. A large majority of the Demo
crats of North Carolina are in favor of re
pealing the internal revenue laws and
there is a good smart sprinkling of Sam
Randall tariff men among them. They
will have to stand on one corner of thena-
tional platform and go for the nominee re-
gardlees ot where they are standing: and
the same may be said of the Republicans.
Extremists and too-smarts must not be coun
tenanced anywhere. Brethren must meet to

The decision of the U. S. Circuit Court

to compel the production of books acq
the testimony ot unwilling witnesses be-'

more behind it than appears on the. face.
It is no more than reasonable to suppose
that if the Pacific Railroad Commission
cannot be authorized to invoke the courts
to compel testimony, the Inter-State Com

Cotton-sellers should understand that no
Cotton-buyer has a right to deduct anything oa
account of the wight of a bale. If a bale weighs
less than three hundred pounds, it can be reject
ed, or a purchaser refuse to buy it, because it is
considered ia New Tork not merchantable.' In
that case the farmer can take his light bale back
home and make it heavier, or have an agreement
with the buyer before the tale it made; bnt no one
has a right to dock without a mutual agreement.
That is in accordance with the new rule of the
New Tork Cotton Exchange.

tW The talk about building a new Court
House for this county is all humbuggery and hu
morous. It is a matter for the Magistrates, in reg
ular annual meeting to consider, then a vote of
the people wouiu have to be taken, and authori
ty granted by tbe Legislature to levy a special
tax would be necessary, &c, &c. The present
Court House is a good one, and better than nine
tenths in the State. The proposition, if one has
been made, will not be endorsed by the tax-payers
of Mecklenburg until they have a little more
money in hand and to spare.
t3F Iron Boxes are being put up over the city
for the deposit of letters to be mailed. The Car
riers will open the Boxes thrice daily, and carry
to the Post Office such matter as they may find.
Capt. J. M. Davis, of this vicinity, ex
hibited a very fine Jersey Bull (Recorded Pedi

years old, and is an elegant specimen. Capt.
Davis offers that and another fine, animal for
sale. See his advertisement.
tW Most of the thieves and burglars, and
men who jump board bills, in this section, and
who are wanted for such violations of law, seem
to have been "book agents" or "agents" for some
thing not much wanted by the pnblic. Two
"Agents" recently fooled Mrs Dodge and Mrs
Bradshaw out of board bills by skipping the
city. It is a wonder that they did not do some
burglary work before they left.
Only 19 deaths in Charlotte, during the

Amos Harrison, another colored man. Grier
was committed to jail by Squire W. J. Taylor
and Messrs M. H. Jordan and J. Baxter Grier

getting him to the jail door in this city, the pris

In regard, to the injuries of Mr Egbert
Harty, in Baltimore, reported in this city this
week, an exchange has this account :
"Mr E. R. Harty of Charlotte, was seriously
assaulted by a colored waiter at the Eutaw
House in Baltimore on Monday. Tbe waiter
struck him with a bottle of sauce and fractured
bis skull, mashing in a piece about the size of a
half a dollar so that it pressed upon the brain.
Mr Harty'a recovery is doubtful."
Mr E. R. Harty is a son of Mr James Harty of
this city, and is one of the gentlest and most
quiet young men of the country, respected and
beloved by all who know him his lrlends here
are surprised that be got into any sort of diffi
culty. We ate pleased to learn that the prospects
for Mr Harty's recovery are good.
The Baltimore American of Tuesday gives the
following account of the unfortunate affair :
There was an angry crowd of drummers and
young business men around the Eutaw House
last night All were discussing an attack made
opou one of the guests by a waiter in the hotel.
E. R. Harty is tbe name of tbe young man. He
is a drummer for the wholesale drug house of
Boy kin, Carmcr & Co, north Liberty street.
Yesterday afternoon he was seated at the table
diniag. When he had finished he ordered fruit,
which his waiter placed before him. He started
to help himself, when Ben Madden, a waiter at
Dolher table, came up and asked if he had
takhed with ;he fruit. Wyaaid he had not,
rejM;hed for iu The waiter said he
wanted it, and pnt ous his hand to take the fruit
dish. Hartv laid his hand on it. but the waiter
was too quick for him, and snatched it from him
and started across the room. This made Harty
angry. Seizing a bottle of Worcester sauce he
burled it at the man. It missed him, however.
He then picked up a water-bottle and fired it at
him. This struck him. Madden passed on till
be reached his table, where he put down tbe
fruit He then went out of the dining-room, but
in a few minutes returned. Walking up to
Haity, he suddenly struck him ih the head over
the temple. Harty dropped in his chair. Then
Madden made for tbe servants' entrance to the
dining-room, followed by all the men who had
wititssed the assault In ten seconds after
Hatty had been struck tbe dining-room was
emptied. Every one of the guests bad made for
hiou Madden, however, was familiar with the
hocse, and slipped out the btck way. Harty was
tak m to his room and Dr. Charles W. Filler was
en; for. He found that Harty's skull was
crushed above the left temple. Dr. C. W. Filler
called Dr. Tiffany in consultation, and together
they removed several pieces of bone from his
f2H In the next campaign, it would
aecm, ao far as the Republicans can con
trol it, tbe negro ia to be tbe issue. The

erner is in favor of obliging him and not
only obliging him, but conclusively ahow
iof; him that white men can and will con

From the Raleigh Correspondent of the Rich-
Col. A. B. Andrews of this city, so well
known as one of the most energetic rail
way, men in tbe South, is prominently
spoken of as a candidate lor Governor.
The Republicans frankly confess that if he
is nominated they will have up-hill work
to defeat him, and that they would be
doubtful ol aucoess.

And those about to enter into'
The unprecedented large sales by my House as
evidenced by Railroad receipts for shipments be
tween August 1st and 20th, of the nine hundred
(900) cases and bales of goods, show how success
fully my "Wholesale" business is. Yet far
larger shipments would have been made were it
not that my salesmen were prevented by the
heavy rains from making all the points mapped
out by me; and to all such of my old customers
I say come to Charlotte, see my colossal lines of
Goods, from which you can make your selections
far more satisfactory than from sample. And
moreover, I will reimburte you ia part and 'per
haps in full of your outlays. Is this not fair
and liberal on my part? "
A Word to New Beginners.
After S3 years of close observation in business,
I am fully convinced that by far the greatest
number of unsuccessful County Merchants is
tracable to their 'first purchase." How? , 1 will
tell you. By being lured by men representing
"Northern HouseV' to go there for their first
purchase, and many a one in doing so Is thus vir
tually "busted" before getting home. Why?
Because, : , ., :
1. Buying in Northern Houses where , the
Goods kept are not selected (like mine) to suit
this section only, the chances are that the new be
ginner will buy the most unsuitable stock -for
his section; hence h has bis shelves full, yet
none to suit his customers. Fatal mistake No. 1.
2. In the excitement and rush of Northern
Market be buys twice, perhaps thrice, as much as
he can and ought to. Fatal mistake No. 2. ' "
3. Tbe injudicious and disproportionate quan
tities brought too much of some things and sot
enough of others (generally the most needful)
the new beginner finds out, too laU, that while he
has moi-j Goods than he ought to have, yet must
order more Goods to help sell off the badly
bought ones, thus being loaded too heavily at
the start you can imagine the rest This much
and more could be said, but a word to the wise
is sufficient. '
How to avoid all this: -
I have now been in business near yon' for S3
years, commenced from, the stump up at a cross
road and grown up with the country, know ex
actly what and how you ought to buy, and I
point (with just pride) to my record as a man
and merchant, and say come to me and 1 pledge
my record to take good care and protect you, and
you will say, as hundreds of others hare done, I
owe my success to you. - . - ,
