Tin- importance of the campaign
this summer is not. we think, fully
nppremt?..! by the people of Xortli
Carolina. The election of member
of our State General Assembly is
a duty containing more real interest
than that of ruiy other officers per
hap?, for it is to them that we look
for those salutary laws that compose
such important elements in a good
government, and such absolute re
Hiiisites for personal liberty and the
enjoyment of happiness and the
well ordering of society. V'e not

ot i uoiic instruction, tne greater
advantage will flow to the State
from the fact that Radicalism will
have received a blow from which it
will be hard for it to rally in the
gubernatorial election in 1ST0. A
defeated party always becomes more
or less demoralized and loses a
large portion of its less zealous ad
herent, while victory not onlv ens
courages to renewed effort, but
brings the doubting and halting ,
lull v in its ranks and under its ban
ners. With this aspect of the case
the election of Superintendent be
comes a most important one, it
becomes a test of mutual strength,
a salient point on the main line
which, if carried, makes the victory
comparatively easy. We are con
stantly receiving cheering intelli
gence of the progress of Col. Pool,
our candidate, and but little doubt
is entertained that he will go in by
a good majority this summer if his
friends but realize the position and
do their duty.
Shall wc hiive one ? There are ;
certainly business matters demand
ing ti County Convention. A new
Executive Committee is to be ap.
pointed, ami a settled plan for guids
ance in the summer campaign adop
ted. We hope the present Chair
the Executive Committee will
call a convention of the democrats
of the county some time durinji the
early part of next month, and that
the call will meet with a hearty re
sponse from our party. We can
hope for nothing without organiza
tion. A STRONG GOVERNMENT.
Tho following from one of the
leading Northern journals, shows
the theory of government entertain

side in the Louisiana case, yet he
compelled peace. When an issue
is made the federal government is
supreme and powerful enough to
overrule State authority. Jackson
showed this in the Nullification act

late secession war. With all our

The crisis in France continues.
Marshal MacMahon has made an
appeal to the republican and con
servative monarchical elements by
appointing M. Goulard to be Prime
Minister. This news is not official,
but it is said to come from good
authority. In the proposed new
Cabinet M. Magne retains the Lead
of the tre.-isurv. The formation of
the new Cabinet indicates tha.t
Marshal MacMahon will lean upon
che conservative sections of the
Assembly, and avoid all affiliation
with the extreme monarchists or the
extreme republicans. The over
throw of De Broglie seems to have
been a legitimist plan to compel
the return of the King. In this
unpatriotic and unsuccessful work
the royalists were aided by the
Bonapartists. who, it seems, would
vote for anarchy to restore the Em
pire. The legitimists and their
allies now threaten that unless
MacMahon will permit the return
of the King they will unite with
the republicans and dissolve the
The entire situation seems criti

DROUGHT THIS SUMMER.

sible article from which we collect
the following, and lay it before the
farmers of Edgecombe for their
We may look outjfor drought
everv season, and shall seldom look
auogether in vain, but the present
spring up to this time has in most
parts of the country, been marked
by frequent rains, and a wet spring
is likely to be followed by a dry
summer. " What can wo do about
it ?" do you ask ? Keep the soil
well stirred and our crops vigorous
by clean cultivation. If our lands
were properly prepared before
planting, we have thj means in our
hands of protecting our crops
against all moderate droughts. The
bad farmer suffers every year,
either from drought or from too
much moisture, and generally, from j
both, buch " bad luck is sure to
follow him, from year to year, till
he shall mend his ways and learn
a more rational system of farming.
BLACK vs. WHITE.
The " culud genniman " ha3 at
last asserted his supremacy over his
white "brudder" io the glorious
2nd Congressional District. John
Ilyman, colored, a kindly disposed
and good natured man we hear, has
whipped out the whole pack of his
brother whites who were seeking to
sacrifice themselves for their coun
try's good, and taken the patriotic
job himself. We think it time the
colored people of the 2nd District,
who compose about ninety-nine
hundredths of the Radical constit
uency,were having some of the pay
ing offices. Our preference, as far
as we have any preference in the
matter, is, negro first, carpet bags
ger next and scallawag last.
Gen. J. B. Hood has come out
before the public in answer to stric
tures upon his defence of Atlanta
by General Johnston, iu which it is
alleged the latter underrated his
own forces and overrated Hood's.
General Johnston had affirmed that
his force at and near Paltorj was
40,484 infantry and artillery and
2,390 cavalry. General Hood con
tends that while General Johnston
lost 5,000 men in sixtysix days
while falling back from Dalton to
Atlanta, he (General Hood) lost
only .r,347 white standing and
fighting for Atlanta forty-six days.
Gen. Hood's reputation has sq
often been assailed on account of
' n's failure before Atlanta, that we
are glad to see him coining forward
and vindicating himself.
in speaking of the bad ell'ect the
passage of the civil rights bill will
have on popular education, Col.
John M. Flemming; Superintendent
of Public Instruction of the State
of Tennessee, says i t $
" If mixfidjschooji weriSordejtt d j

and were they attended, the result
would be rather a juvenile war of

circle not to be subject in a great
degree to social laws and influences.
Already the detrimental effect of
the proposition to include public j
schools withm the operation ot the
civil rights bill have beGn severely
felt in Tennessee. The mere pen
dency of the bill in Congress, with
a possibility of its passage, has be
gotten hurtful apprehensions. The
county Courts of quite a number of
counties that last year levied addi
tional school taxes have this year
either deferred action on the sub
ject or referred the matter to the
people. School officers throughout
the State have been for some time
uneasy and distrustful. I have
myself been, and still am, in hesi
tation in regard to projected meas
ures of school policy which an en- j
forcement of the civil rights bill in 01 tllG American iron ana oreei ;i.s
reference to schools would render j sochtion is called for the 1'sth inst,
valueless. Certainly no sane man j to consider the depression of trade
at all acquainted with the temper j and to petition Congress to restore
and tastes of our people, can expect i the iron tariff of 172.
