Great effort has been made by
the Radicals since the war, and in
fact is now making, to divide the
Conservative-Democratic party of
North Carolina by appealing to the
old party prejudices of the Whigs
and Democrats. Believing, as they
seem to do, that party ends are to
be subserved regardless of individ
ual principle, private honor or sec
tional attachments, they attempt
to lead the true people of North
Carolina from their duties as good,
loyal citizens of their State, and
as high-minded men, by fancied
and false ideas of political party
fealty. The Whigs of North Car
olina as well as the Democrats,
whatever had been their differences
.is to the theoretical doctrine of
; States' Rights," were united as
one in their resistance to ursurped
power and encroachments upon
their liberties guaranteed by the
Federal Constitution. Gov. Grah
am was as true to his State as
Thomas Bragg, and was as little
apt to join the party that had done
all in its power to crush the manli
ness and self-respect of his people
The idea that the doctrines of
Henry Clay are synonymous with
those of Morton, Butler, &c, is for-
fetched and rediculous. Clay was
in favor of a restricted suffrage,
while the present Radical party
has extended it to almost every
individual that has a likeness to
We are induced to make these
remarks by a paragraph which re
cently appeared in a "Western N
C, radical paper. The editor, al
luding to the political character o
his paper says :
Its editor was early taught the
political doctrines ot Henry Clay,
and therefore, of the parties of to

those avowed by that illustrious
statesman who, were he living in
this era of the political world, would
be a beacon-light of Republicanism
and a staunch defender of its pnn
It is hard to see the relevancy o
the ergo between the premises, viz
the fact of beinjr ednocatcd as a
desciple of Clay and being a Radi
cal now. The logic of this editor
is certainly faulty, and hi3 conclu

that if Clay were " living in this
era of the political world he would
be a beacon-light of Republicanism
and a staunch defender of its prin
ciples," but on the other hand
from his lofty patriotism and noble
character, it is more resonable to
suppose that he would be a fear
les3 denunciator of the base practic
es by which the Radical party has
maintained its sway and made the
governments of many of the States
of the Union a burlesque.
The minutes of the meeting of
this body, held at Goldsboro Nov
4th and 5th, 1873, have been placed
on our table by Dr. 0. H. Hyatt,
Secretary. Tim association is aux
iliary to the State Medical Society
and has for its object " the advance
ment of medical knowledge, the
elevation of professional character,
and the promotion of all measures
of a professional nature that are
adapted to the relief of suffering
The purpose of the society is
surely a noble one, and it would be
well if the importance of h could
be inforced upon the Legislature,
that stringent laws might be enar
ted to prevent the assumption of so
responsible a position as that of a
practitioner of medicine without
the proper qualifications and edu
cational preparations. To prac
tice law one must undergo an ex
amination by the judges of the
Supreme Court, and very properly,
but how much more valuable is a
man's life than his property, and
yet the medical quack is allowed to
practice hia art, with no more
knowledge of it than that sulphur
is good for the itch, and whisky
and dogwood bark good for chills.

ANNALS OF IOWA.
Rev. Mr. Owen litis shown us a
I fpyi'-f igazine with the above
title, published quarterly by the
State Historical Society at Iowa
City. It is a well gotten up journal
and an excellent idea. It writes the
iistory of its state as facts are enac
ted, and thus furnishes most reliable
material from which the future
hilosophic historian may collect his
ata. The number before us has a
sketch of Judge Grant, a native of
North Carolina, who has acquired
both fame and wealth in the young
state of his adoption, with a full
account of his silver wedding, which
took place at his residence in
Davenport on the 10th of June last.
Why is it that North Carolina
does not have a historical society
with a publication of this nature ?
Are the energes of the older states
paralized and their senses dulled
that they are so far behind their
younger sisters in such elements of
We have on a former occasion
given our views on this subject, and
will not now elaborate. The prin
cipal point to be considered by the
Legislature is, "Are legal adver
tisements necessary at all "? If
they are, they should be made effec-
tion. lhat the present mode is
not so, but opens a door to unlim
ted fraud, is apparent.
We opine, the chief objection to
publishing legal advertisements in
the county papers, is one based on
nothing but buncombe. Legislators
are afraid that it might be distaste
ful to some of their constituents, and
some few of the hundred and seventy
might thereby fail to get the
nomination for Congress.
We will say nothing of the con
sideration which the press of the
6tate has a right to expect in a
measure where no valid objection
can be raised against the measure
In a recent number of the Raleigh
Xetcs Capt. Saml. T. Williams
announced his withdrawal from the
editorial staff of that journal.
We regret to lose Capt. Wil
liams from the press of the scate.
He is a graceful writer and has
been a faithful worker in the cause
of Democray and good government
in North Carolina.

Ohio. Mr. Waite, is said to be a
good lawyer and to have some state
reputation, but has never been
known in national concerns except
as a member of the Geneva arbitra
tion. But the President seems to
care nothing for the history of his
administration, ane has a knack of
gathing about him men who have
never been heard of.
Scissors sometimes work hard,
when a tenth of a grain of oil,
touched along the cutting edges to
make them move easily over each

EASTERN SCENES AND TOPICS.
The Wilmington Journal, of the
18th inst. contains a long and well
written letter from Gen. Colston,
formerly of the Confederate army,
now in the service of the Kodive.
We would be glad to lay the entire
communication before our readers
but space forbids, and hence must
give only extracts ;
While the camel is abstemious,
tough and may be called docile, he ia
not as amiable or agreeable as ho is
necessary. Jle is horribly ugly,
ungraceful and unsymmetrical. He
sweats through the skin like the
horse, but smells infinitely worse.
But above all, he is cross and obsti
nate. I do not know of a domestic
animal who expresses his feelings
more loudly or openly. The dog
yells when you heart him. The ox
lows only when he feels like it. The
donkey brays loud enough, as the
echoes of Cairo can testify, but it is
only when the fancy takes him; and
the horse is silent under any amount
of blows and ill treatment. The cam
el's voice is a subdued mixture of the
bull's bellow and the lion's roar, and
sounds more like the roar of a wild
beast than the cry of a domestic ani
mal This harmonious voice he exer
cises on all occasions. Whether vou
want him to lie down or get up, to
stop when going, or to move from a
halt, he roars. When you are load
ing him, or mounting, or preparing
to mount, he roars. At every article
laid on his pock, or his saddle, if
only a blanket or a handkerchief, he
utters an additional roar with a
plaintive chord in it as if to say, how
can you impose on me bo much ? In
the morning, when a hundred camels
are being packed or saddled previous
to the march and they are all roaring
and growling at the same time in a
resounding gorge of granitic moun
tain, you might suppose that all the
wild beasts in Africa are congregated;
and the same sounds are repeated at
the evening halt.
It is astonisiiing to see him eat tho
boughs of tho mimoso a dwarf tree
with thorns an inch-tnd-a-half long
and as hard as porcupine quills.
These sharp points seem to afford
him agreeable titilation, like mustard
does to us, I suppose.
You know that it never rains ia
t'iis country except on the sea-coast;
tho desort begins justwhere the water
raised by irrigation coases to roach,
and the line is as sharply maked as
the boundary of n field. Hence, the
great labor of agriculture is that of
irrigation, and it is incessant. In all
the valley ot the iNile ana its island,
the cultivable soil is only a few feet
above the level of the river. All
along the banks you see in continual
operation two water-raising machines
which were in use thousands oi year3
After eight days navigation, (steam
ing only by daylight,) I reached
Kenen, and in a few days my train
was ready to leave, -but several in
teresting incidents happened during
my stay, of which 1 will mention
only the dinner given to me and my
officers by the .British V ice-Jonsul.

speak a word of English, but he is
Consul, as his father was for forty
years before him. He is a rich
merchant and his office gives him
valuable privileges. The Governor
of the district and his Lieutenant
Governor and some other big wigs
were there. The dinner was a la
Turque in Arab fashion, but we sat
off on chairs at the table of the usual
height, instead of sitting cross-legged
on tho floor at a table 15 inches high,
as the natives do. The first thing
was for a servant to come round to
each guest with water, soap and
towel that ho might waBh his hands
a very good precaution as you will
seo. The first course was Boup,
was eaten by all out of tho tureen,
each one dipping his spoon in as he
wanted, soup-plates not being in
order, though other plates were
After the soup, came a fine mutton,
stuffed and roasted whole, and a very
"excellent dish it was. But knives
and forks are modern innovations
etill unadopted, if not unknown in
the interior. Tho Governor and the
Consul showed the way by tearing
off pieces with their lingers; and as I
was rather awkward at it; the Gov
ernor himself tore off a good fleshy
piece and put on my plate with a
bow, and 1 eat it with good appetite.
A little while after, he took the head
which had already been split and
tearing it in two, he gave me one
half and kept the other. In tho
main, the dinner was very good, al
though they mixed dishes of sweet
things with the meats, &c. Each
guest rose as soon as he had eat
enough and the servant waited
on him again with soap and
water. Although the guests eat with
their fingers, everything was ex
tremely clean, and I was glad to see
this exhibition of oriental customs.

day's march, for it would bo .monoto

would spring up every day. The
only trouble we had was the bad
water; for water of any kind was
very scarce at that timo of the year.
About sundown we wculd halt and
camp for the night, and tho nights
were always cool and pleasant. The
air of tho desert is always perfectly
dry, and the evaporation of water is

companionship. Every now and then
the guide at the head of the column
would break out in a strange, wild
and monotonous song, unlike any
think I ever heard before, and would
be answered by another from the cen
tre and the rear of tho column. From
timo to time a short halt would ho
made to enable the laggard to come
up; and when the litst streaks of
dawn appeared in the Eastern sky,
we would came for tho day, see the
fierce sun rise above the hills, eat
breakfast and go to sleep. By the
way, I learned to look upon the 6un,
the blessed sun, in quite an unfriend
ly way. To the traveller on tho
desert, he seems like a personl foe,
enger to dry up his blood, to parch
his tongue, to burn this flesh and to
drink bis life. Whenever I saw him
pooring over the hills and piercing
through the canvas of my tent. 1
could hardly refrain from applying to
him those words of Scripture : "llast
thou found me O ! mine enemy
Unfortunately for me, I became
quite sick before the end of the jour
ney to the Eed Sea in consequence
of the bad water I had to use and the
latter, part of my trip here was not so
pleasent as the beginning.
An interesting feature about the
Moslems is their religious practices.
They worship, as you know, the Qod
of the Old Testament and recognizo
Moses as a great prophet, Jesus or
Iesa, as they call him, as a greater
one but consider Mahomet as the
promised Messiah. They look upon
a Christian as far superior to a Jew,
because he believes in two of their
prophets and the Jew in one only.
Their works are, some of them, very
splendid specimens of Moorish
architecture but they contain no
ornaments or images. There is noth
ing that a Alohammedan execrates
more than the worship of images and
idols. Although their religion is
vitiated by many fatal errors,
they aro the most pious people on
earth, in their way, except the upper
classes which are fast becoming in
different and unbelievers. The great
mass of them, however, stick to the
old faith. Whenever tho hour comes
for the Miezzen to call to prayer,
which is several times a day, they
spread thoir carpot (if they have one)
in the street or any where they may
be and go through their orisons. It
is a sight which never fails to excite
my respect. I see tho soldiers doing
it in ca-mp, the sailors on the deck
of the ehip whenever they aro not on
duty without affectation, without
wishing to be seen or being ashamed
to be seen, but evidently to perform
a serious duty. The Moslem spreads
out a mat or a prayer carpet about
five feet square, if he happens to have
one, and pulls off his shoes. Then
he stands oa it faoing towards the
East 'towards Mecca, and with his
hands folded before him seems to col
lect his thoughts for a few moments.
Then he raises both Lands above his
head and exclaims, ,l God i3 great !
God ia merciful !" and bows deeply
twice. Then he kneels and bends
down till hia noso first, and then his
forehead touch the ground. Then
ho sits kneeling and repeats his beads,
of which ho carries ajchaplet like tho
Roman Ca'holies. Finally he con
cludes his prayers with touching the
ground and bowing as btfore.

THE 0XLI KNOW MEDICINE
THAT AT THE SAME TIME
PURGES, PURIFIES $ STRENGTHENS
DR. TUTT'S TILLS are composed of
many ingredients. Prominent among them
are Sarsaparilla and Wild Cherry, ro united
as to act together; the one, through its ad
mixture with other substances, purifying
and purging ; while the other is strengthen
ing the system. Thus these Pills are at the
same time a tanic and a cathartic, a desider
atum long sought fo"-' by medical men, but
never before discovered. In other words,
they do the work of two medicines and do
it much better than any two we know of,
for they remove nothing from the system
but impurities, so that while they purge
they also strengthen and hence they cause
no debility and are foliowed bv no reaction
DR. TUTT'S P- ",LS have a" wonderful in
fluence on the bloo.".. They not only tiurifv
without weakening it, but they remove all
noxious parties from the chyle before it is
converted into fluid, and thus makes impure
blood an utter impossibility. A there is no
nausea or sickness attending the operation
of this most excellent medicine, which never
strains or tortures the digestive organs, but
causes thera to work ia a perfectly natural
manner ; hence persons taking them do not
become pale and emaciated, but on the con
trary, while all impurities are bping remov
ed, the combined action ot the Sarsaparilla
and t ild Chsrry purities and invigorates the
body, and a robust state of health is the ro
