The Enquirer In that city. Our paper may
be found on file at their office, 1S4 West Bal
TROOPS IN THE SOUTH.
A resolution was a few days ago
introduced in Congress to remove
the troops, now on duty in the
South, to the frontier. The matter
was referred to the Committee on
Military Affairs,who has examined
witnesses on the expediency of the
bill. Gen. McDowell testified that
in ins opinion a reduction 01 ine
army woul be unsafe, and further
asserted, " there was much opposU
tion in the South against the Gen
eral Government and it would be
difficult for the civil authorities to
execute the laws in some portions
of the South if not for the presence
of the military."
The audacious mendacity of this
assertion is so apparent, that
the vilest scallawag or most enter
prising carpet-bagger would be
ashamed to assert it. It has too
been so often refuted, that it seems
like wasting breath to contradict it
again. The idea of its being un
safe in the South for any one, after
we have endured the presence of
the vilest characters, who have
preyed upon us and denounced us
as rebels deserving the halter, and
submitted with wonderful patience
to usurped governments of the most
absurd and revolting type, is really
ridiculous. The South has for
borne and submitted beyond all
anticipation. It has allowed the
dreg3 of the North to hold its offi
ces of honor and trust ; it has seen
its most cherished institutions tram
pled upon ; it has beheld the aboli
tion of itu most venerable laws,
tried by time and suited to the gen
ius of it3 people ; it has mourned
the loss of time-honored customs,
changed because they were customs
of the old-time South ; it has suf
ered men of the lowest characters,
whose shadows could not have dark
en its doors in former times,to stand
upon its own soil and belch out the
vilest denunciations against her
proudest sons : The South has
Been all this and , be astonish-.
ed 0 heavens ! submitted to it, and
yet to add to our humiliation we
are told that it is necessary to post
soldiers among us to enforce the
laws of the. civil authorities.
It is time that our Senators and
Representatives were standing up,
with some of the spirit that once
characterized the South, and telU
ing the authors of such assertions
that they are the basest lies, knowi
ingly told, and that we are not op
posed to the government but to the
radical party, who has spent all its
energies in attempting to make of
a chivalrous people a vile time-serving
The committee, to whom was re
ferred the matter of impeachment of
Judge Watts, is still engaged in
collecting evidence. We know
nothing of the charges preferred
against him, except those that have
found a place in the newspapers
and are familiar to the public, but
we have no hesitancy in saying, if
half that has received current cir
culation in regard to this judge be
true, he should be convicted and
expelled from his office. The ques
tion of evidence, however, is one
exclusively for the Legislature, and
we only allude to it to call upon
that body to do its duty in the
premises. If he is guilty, stay in
Raleigh until next summer before
he is allowed to go clear. Disre
gard the complaints of long sessions
and purge the state of corrupt
officials. It is better for the people,
poor as they are, to pay a tax of
millions rather than suffer dishon

THE CAROLINA HERALD.
The 6nt number of ibis new en

lished at Oxford, N. C, by Capt.
Wm. Biggs, Editor and Proprietor.
Capt. Biggs' force as a writer is
too we'l known to the public, by

place in New Hampshire on the

be that of Connecticut, on the 6th
of April. The parties in these states
are so nearly equal, and victories
have oscilated to such an extent for
the last four years that it is impos

the signs of the the times seem to

Cannot the Legislature in its
election bill insert a provision re

dare say eleven hundred and nine

there in this ?

MINOR LIQUOR LAW
Through the kindness of Senator
McCabe we have been furnished with
a manuscript copy of the following bill,
which has passed its several readings
and is now a law :
A Bill to be entitled "An Act to prohibit
the tale cf ardent Spirits to Minors."
Sec. 1. The General Assembly of
North Carolina do enact, that it shall
be unlawful for any dealer, trader or
retailer of intoxicating drinks or
liquors to sell or give away any such
drinks or liquors, and in any manner
to receive compensation therefor,
either directly or indirectly to any
person under the age ef twenty one
years, knowing the said person to be
under twenty one years of age. any
person who keeps on hand intokica
ting liquors for the purposes of sale
or profit shall be considered a dealer
within the meaning of this Act.
Sec. 2. The father, or if he be
dead the mother, guardian, or em
ployer of any minor, to whom sales
or gifts shall be made, in violation of
this Act shall have a right of action
in a civil suit against the person or
persons offending by such sales or
gifts . and upon proof of any such
illicit sales or gifts shall recover from
such party or parties so offending such
exemplary damages as a jury may
assess. Provided, such assessment
shall be not less than twenty five
Set;. 3. Any person or persons
violating the provisions of section one
of this Act shall be deemed guilty of
a misdemeanor and upen conviction
shall pay a fine of not less than ten
dollars or more than fifty dollars or
imprisoned not more than one month
or the Court may, in its discretion,
impose both such fine and imprison
ment. Provided however that this
Act shall not apply in cases of minors
who are married.
Sec. 4. That this Act shall take
affect on the first day of May 174.
The Election Law.
The Wilmington Journal in its issue
of Sunday, makes some capital sug
gestions in regard to the election law,
which the General Assembly would
do well to seriously consider. The
law could yet be amended in accor
dance with the JournaVi suggestion
by the passage of a supplementary
act. After reciting the fact that the
law as it now stands requires voters
to vote in the townships in which
they reside, the Journal says :
"Negroes are very migrato.ry, liv
ing wherever they can get work, and
even changing from one employer to
another, appareatly for no better rea
son than from a love of change. A
negro man, unknown to the poll
holders, presents himself at the regis
ters and afterwards at the ballot-box
and offers to vote. Upon challenge
he swears he lives within the town
ship or ward, and is allowed to regis
ter and vote. Nobody knows him
and without further examination he
casts his vote. At one election we
have seen several negroes vote at
one of the boxes in this city, each
swear-ing that he lived at a "dance
house" on the wharf, in which there
was not a single bed, and was only a
house for dancing, drinking and
eating. Yet challenges were without
avail, as each swore to his residence,
and their naked oaths outweighed
any and all other testimony. Protests
were unheeded, as the poll-holders
ruled that they could not go behind
We believe we do not over esti
mate the number in saying that, at
every election, several hundred ille
gal votes are cast in Wilmington,
just in this way. What is true of
our city is true of Newbern, Raleigh,
Fayetteville, Charlotte, Goldsboro,
Tarboro, Warrenton Weldon and, in
the large negro townships in the
counties in which these towns are
" We desire that some remedy shall
be applied to this crying evil. When
a voter is unknown to the poll-holders,
he should be compelled to prove
his residence by some man of charac
ter who is known to them. Every
man. however humble, who is a bona
fide resident of a township or ward,
is Known by some other resident who
can identify him. Non-residents who
illegally vote are beyond the reach of
the law, because they leave immedi
ately, or cannot be identified. We
have seen at every election hundreds
of negroes vote, who are unknown to
any one about the polls, and cannot
be identified afterwards, even if they
remain in the city for a day after the
" The remedy that we propose is
that unknown persons shall prove
their residence upon oaths of indi
viduals well known, first to prevent
illegal votes, and second, to have
some person whom the law can take
hold of if there should be false swear
ing. The remedy against persons
swearing falsely as to the residence
of voters should be severe, sure and
speedy. Give us such a law and it
will, at the election in August, save
several thousands illegal votes in this
section of the State. We are satis
fied that there were enough non-residents
who voted for Governor Cald
well east of the Wilmington & Wel
don Railroad to secure his election
In Aughst we have some very impor
tant elections, and such a provision
in the Election Law may prevent
illegal voters from deciding theresult.
We endorse the views of our con
temporary fully, and join in the hope
that our Legislature wilt-givo these
suggestions an early and earnest at
tention. It behooves all parties to
use every effort to maintain the
purity of the ballot box.
