Justices or thb Piaci. At all times
the office of a Justice of the Peace has been
a high and honorable one. Into his hands
arc committed many interests of the citi
zen w hich, though apparently small, are of
vital importance to the government of so
ciety. Great care should always therefore
be taken to put in this office men of com
prehensive ideas and unimpeachable integri
ty, and especially in these days when the
jurisdiction of his court has been so greatly
augmented and his power for evil so much
increased. Instead, however, (we allude
to our own county) the office is often
filled bv men of absolute ignorance and the
most bitter and unscrupulous partisan
We are induced to make these observa
tions by reports that are constantly reach
ing us of the tyrany and usurpation prac
ticed by many of the Justices of our coun
ty. An instance was given us of a trial
of two colored women for an affray.-
They w ere both aequited but were required
to pay 1.60 each as cost. When they
complained and spoke of appealing they
were informed that they would be put in
jail if they appealed. A colored man was
taken liefore a colored Justiice for bois-
trous conduct and fined five cents and cost,
from which he appealed and the Justice
required of him a bond in the sum of $2.50.
We have now in our possession an order
from a colored magistrate informing a
gentleman that if he did not surrender to a
woman, who had made her complaint to
the Justice, her household property he
would be dealt with according to law, al
though there had been no trial whatever
in the case.
Such examples of judicial tyranny are of
frequent oeciirrene, and the perpetratori
should be brought to trial and severely

Me. Editor: It has been sometime
since I troubled your readers to wade
through one of my communications, and
I would keep silent longer but do not think
it well to allow people to remain quiet and
contented too long, for it injures human
nature to be lengthily indulged in anyway,
shape, manner or form. I would like to
remark, briefly on " cotton seed oil " but
I " dar'nt do it " now that your consolida
tion has taken place, for I would necessari
ly have to stand on both sides of the fence,
and if my memory serves me right, my legs
are entirely too short to treat Edgecombe
fences in any such manner. If you would
not consider me too inquisitive I would
really like to ask you, confldentialy, how
many tons of cotton seed actually change
bands, yearly, in Edgecombe county at
$16 per ton.? My Investigating bump
caused me to propound the above question,
but if the "critter" provokes your edito
rial ire to any point that savors of a remote
desire to resent its puncturing property, do
not entertain the idea, of replying,
for a moment, for I fear the ire
might get the best of you and then the
Spirit is abroad in your section. You
might drop me a warm and inviting note
and be foolish enough to expect me to con
sider myself complimented and cheerfully
comply with your wishes, which I am free
to couf ess I should not do unless I positive
ly knew justice, with her ever vigilant
officers, would kindly eves-drop our prepa
ration ascertain our destination and put a
ston to oue determination, (so called).
After reading the above I know your
spirit feels wounded, for the style is, cer
tainly, enough to kill an ordinajy and
wound an un-ordinary editor, and there
fore I must plainly tell you, before going
further, that in my humble opinion your
paper or, I should say Jopesal is certain

has been my fortune or ill-luck to handle
in sometime. Its get up is excelent and must
surelv win for vou the success you emi
nently deserve. You need'nt trouble to

come) on account of the above for it is
intended as it is a merited compliment,
which I freely deliver. " Free gratis for
With a kind adieu to apologies, com
pliments, fears and anticipations that un
der certain circumstances -moui dc
shall turn to a serious subject.
As expected, cotton, in this market, has
declined to-day and become exceedingly
heavy and dull with a promise to become
more so shortly, one oi tne uvesi mer
chants in the city told me this morning
that he believed it would " go clear out of
siirht." vou doubtless know what this term
means, if however you do not, just buy a few
at nresent nrices. and hold them for
a few months and you will Had out. Since
writing the above my mind has Irecome
very much excited by thinking of what
will probatily be the fate of seed if cotton
goes out of sight. Ah ! I have it, they
will soon go out of sight ton, and then "go
up," provided, however, there is enough
to supply the demand at per ton.
It, seriously, looks very gloomy in the
cotton market for the farmers and what
course is best for them to pursue, 1 fear, is j
past finding out.
The cotton merchants, generally, seem j
bewildered and consequently their opinions j
are more or lews influenced bv the amounts !
advanced on ghinments. One thinsr. an-
pears to me, quite certain, I cannot believe
the crop will sell for less than it cost to
produce it, and if it has to come to as low
a figure as cost, the farmer certainly
would not be far wrong to sell his cotton at
his home market. If it does go to cost,
I for one hope the planters of the South
will reap from its sale, at least one good
lesson which can be expressed in very few
words. "Raise more corn, wheat, oats
and hay." By doing this (ah ! how many
times have we been told this) they will
raise the price of cotton, raise their credit,
raise themselves in the estimation of man
kind and raise a support. If it happened
not to be a good crop year, and they fol
lowed my advice, they'd raise me too if
I happened around about Grass Grow ing
Association. Please keep me posted on
this subject for I shall feel uneasy until I
know the result of this years crop.
It is about tune for me to stop, for 1
have used five cents worth of pencil and
ditto's worth of paper, (which by the w ay
you will please deduct from mv back sub
scription) but really I cannot do so until
I have inquired about the " Edgecombe
Jockey Club," I feel interested in that in
stitution and hope you will not let it die.
It would be outrageous to allow so promis
ing a child become fatherless. If no one

Sadng and Breeding- A Reply to " No
Mk. Editor : Your issue of Jan. loth
contains a communication from "No
Member " on " Racing and Horse Breed
ing" which suggests the following thoughts.
When we were school boys and wrote
frequent compositions on the " uoble ani
mal," giving position of mane, tail and
legs in elaborate detail, speaking knowing
ly of the fiery eye, the nervous movement
and velvety hair of the racer, and pathet
ically of the slow, dnlL plodding motion of
the dray-horse, with his many burdens and
ill treatment, little did we think our effu
sions would excite, in the minds of men,
such admiration for the one and sympathy
for the other, that many should lie found
now who are anxious to convert every
dray-horse into a racer. Such seems to lie
the purpose of the Jockey Club ; for " No
Member " tells us that Edgecomlc stock
of horses certainly needs improving and
it remains for vou gentlemen of the Tar
River Jockey Club to do it :" and suggests
that this be accomplished by a sweep-stake ;
inis BUggesiKMi ir - ueveioiung, uirougu
euuurnnivr puiit- oi uu'iff-iuv-ui, m i-oiii- :
parative perfection has many points to
recommend it. If is ery comprehensive ;
it propores t siart with scrub stock and
develop to tlie paragon of animals : the
materials are to be found on everv hand
and the end ia certainly desirable, it i n,r
ephemeral affair : the Jockey Club will tiiul
employment for many years to c:me in
" racing for prizes during ibis long ieriid
of generations " to improve Iklgeeomlie
stock. And lastly it is a home enterprise ;
it is not proposed to import any thorough- ;
breds reajdv -made, but to produce them j
tromtneraw maienaip. ttut tne gentle-:
men of the Tar River Jockey Club will
probably remember that only three-score
years and ten are allotted to man and think
"No Member's" suggestion a little im
practicable. But to speak more seriously, the viei
tiona taken in the article referred to amount
to these ;that the only way in which the
horse can lie developed to comparative
perfection is by trials of speed for prizes :
that but for the thorough bred horse fully
one-half of the usefulness of horseu for
ordinary labor would be lost ; that horse
racing should be stimulated aud encouraged
by the best classes of society.
As to the first position, the writer is cer
tainly correct, in the main, if the only
object we have in view is to raise fast hors
es; trials of speed is certainly the proer
way to increase sjieed.
The second position is clearly illogical. ;
There is no more reason for saying that the ;
admixture of the blood of the race-horse
improves the working qualities of the dntv- ;
horse, than there would lie for saying that I
the admixture of the hlood of the dray- j
horse would improve the speed of the racer.
If trials of speed improve speed, so con
stant work increases the power of enduring
that kind of work ; and perfect dray-horses
should be developed on the principle ap
plied to racers, by purity of dray-horse
blood and by constant exercise in the work
they are intended for. If the dray-horse
is improved in speed and sprightliness by
the admixture of the blood of the racer, it
must be done at the expense of size and
One would be greatly puzzled to under
stand the relation of the third position to
the subject, were it not very clear that
there is an important matter connected with
racing which must have been m the mind
of the writer but is not alluded to at all.
What has society to do with the matter ?
Surely the best people do not object to first
class horses, and if the raisers and owners
of thorough-breds confined themselves to
the improvement of their stock very little
would ever be heard of the matter in any
Why does " Sio Member think it ne
cessary to offer " prizes " in races ? The
only thing he argues for is the improve
ment of the horse by trials of speed ; can
not this be done without a prize ? It could
be If improvement were the main object of
those who engage in racing, but unfortun
ately so soon as the " prizes " and "stakes"
are withdrawn from the race-course we
hear no more of the development of "those
noble creatures, which represent the very
greatest of God's kindnesses to man. "
Those who hold "No Member s views
must accept one of tbe following proposi
tions ; that gambling is not wrong ; that a
race -course can be kept up without betting;
or that our breed of horses should be im
proved at the expense of public morals.
Hardly any one would have the hardi
hood to accept either of the last two, and
the matter is reduced to this, that horse
racing can be defended only on the ground
that gambling is not damaging to good

THE 0XL1 MOW MEDICIXE
THAT AT TUB SAME TIME
T URGES, PURIFIES STRENGTHENS
DR. TUTT'S PILLS are composed of
many ingredients. Prominent among them
are Sarsaparilla and Wild Cherry, so united
as to act together ; tbe 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 aDy two we kuow 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 followed by no reaction.
DR. TUTT'S PILLS have a wonderful in-
j flnence ou the blood. They not only purify
without weakening it, but they remove all
I noxious parties from the chyle before it is
! converted into fluid, and thus makes impure
i blood an utter impossibility. As there is no
nausea or sickness attending the operation
I of this m08t excelleiit medicine, which never
strains or tortures the digestive orsatis, but
causes them to work iu a perfectly natural
manner ; hence pet sons taking them do not
become pale an 1 emaciated, but on the con
trary, while all impurities are being remov
ed, the combined action of the Sarsaparilla
and Wild Cherry purifies and invigorates the
body, and a robust state of health is the re
sult of their united action. Price, 25 cents
