that man n friend either to the colored peo

white folks ami black folks, and black
folks must have their rights, and they ar3
r.s good as white folks, and they are going
to hce that ihey get their rights, whea in
fact their right are never denied them, and
they enjoy as much, if not more rights,
than the white people, because the -white
people Paving moie intelligence and for
bearance have submitted to a great many
indignities, simply because they knew,
however iun- K-ei t they might le, it would
ih turned by designing men to further
array the clas-os. AYe are in feelings and
i eciuilar.- interest the friends of the black
man. He works our hinds and we pay
him our money. If one leaves the State,
v.c go to Virginia and bring two to put in
hid place if we can get them, and doesn't
an;; t-Avr man know, whether he is a North
ern or a S vphorn man, that if we, the peo

i iw lii.it didn't give him his rights, agents
from the other Southern States, would Hock
into Nor'h Carolina and carry them off by
the car 1 ad to States still farther South,
when they couM enjoy all their rights and
get goo: I waves besides? The people who

They, r.s a general class, are men who have
nothing, who do not give one of them em

from them and they - get eveiytlung from
tho colored man by his vote.

Mr. Ebitoi: : Since the organiwitkm of
the Ivxlw of Gxxl Tduud&ra in tills place,
nathlng has tntiispired i.i coaJK-ction wi'li
it sr pleasant h:kI enjoyable as the day of

j ltiver Lod-e, JJ x ky Mount, where we had
j been kindly invited to join thrm in a Pic
nic. It was a some' of regret that tlu whole
lxlije were not aide to go, nut s:ane
twenty-live, with a few friends, went.
Tlie ride to Uockv 3Iount seemed to be
ere we were there. In a few minutes after
the arrival of the train, a procession could I
he seen coming toward the Depot, com-!
posed, as we learn, of the lodges of Hocky
Mount and Jovners Depot, clad in Kegaha
and with banners tlviuj. bearini? the three
trv..nf in 1 ,.t t.Ul.
i . -.t . 1 . ' 1
an.t e liantv. It w as a surht not soon to
lie forgotten. There were the old and the
young, male and female, all enlisted and
ready to do battle against the direst foe of
our race. AYe feel intemperance lo be a
social evil and it must be corrected so
cially. The sexes must lie placed on an
equal footing. Pardon this digression Mr.
Editor, for the sight above recorded
awakened strong and serious reflection.
)n the North of the Deiot the proces don
J halted and divided and Advance Lodge was
j escorted through to the front, where we
took position, and all moved forward to
j the pi ice prepared for the day's exercises,
j a beautiful grove, where everything had
leen nicely arranged, a stand for the
speakers, seats for the audience and tables.
1 teaching the grove we were halted, and in
a few remarks from brothsr Holden, W.
C. T., Tar Biver Lodge, were kindly wel
comed to the festivities of the day, which
I regret to say were not responded to, (at
least in words,) although I am sure we
fully appreciated the kindness done us.
This, by the way, was the only awkward
part of the dav's proceedings and that en -tircD
on the part of our own lodge. You
know, oib AY. C. T. is as clever a fellow
as this country affords, but he had exhaust
ed his vocabulary some time previous,
(having had to do some courting at a long
distance) and was wholly unable to find
words to express himself on this occasional
so we'll have to " forgive-him " this time.
But all the embarrassment of the situa
tion soon passed away under tl delights
of the iced lemonade, " straight," served
by Bro. Tillery, who, judging from the
quality of the article then produced, knew
just what he was about. Long may he
live to work in the Temperanbe cause, and
at Picnics dispose such drinks as refresh
and do not intoxicate !
After lemonade, all were requested to
occupy the seats to listen to the addresses
of the day. The opening remarks were
made by Bro. Holden followed by our AY.
Chaplain, Bev. C. C. Dodson, who enter
tained his audience near three forths of an
hour. They loth spoke to the point, and
the speeches relleet credit alike upon both.
1 trust some impression was made for
good. Then came the dinner, Pig, (bark
ened) Chicken, (some, ditto) Lamb, Ham,
&c, A-c, a splendid repast, enough for all
and of the fragments, I should judge, a
basket full. Heally Mr. Editor, the din
ner, as well as everything else, reflects great
credit upon all concerned, and if you could
have seen the style with which it disap
peared you would have needed no addi
tional evidence as to its qualitj-.
( 'ill you allow me here to correct the
statement of the I toe ky Mount Mail of last
week? When the Editor, in speaking of
the picnic, attempting to say something
funny, takes liberties with the name of a
stranger he should not do. He labors
tmder a wrong impressien if he thinks
that barliecued chicken went down one
throat. It had to stand the cuts of sever
al, who were ignorant of its being special
property, and were not aware of the fact
ar.tll the "drum stick" had been
siezed and there was found attached to it
a slip of paper, stating that it was "ex
pressly pre; ared, &.c. Bro. Dodson was
j in the meantime engaged with something
i else.) Dinner over the crowd scatter
around e-enerallv, for the most DSrt bv
twos, both not of the same gender, how
ever, and'tojjudge from appearances, more
than one heart wo3 exchanged. It strikes
me there was considerable done in that
line of business.
I saw one young man (Tarboro fellow
too) who has held out for some time but
he "gave up the Ghost" (of his heart)
that day, hut I fear it will be without avail,
for he can't expect to contend successfully
with Lretberen who are the recipients of
chickens, with papers pinned to their per
ambulators, lie sars, however, he's goimr
After an intermission of perhaps an hour
wo were again invited to lemonade, after
w hich w e had a dow n-right stirring speech
from Bro. Holden, then adjourned (the
members) to the Bodge Room where a most
interesting meeting was held. It was a
delightful time to some of us at least. I
am tpiite certain, Mr. Editor, that the
Lodge of tiiHxI Templars at Rocky Mount
are dolim- a troxl work. 1 tlimk. Mr. llol-
den as AY. C. T. is the right man in the
right place, and I was also struck with the
ojien manly face of Bro. Parker, W. C. T.,
AYowlville Lodge, and from the reports of
thet-e broMiren, they are both working with
a will. Soon after the adjournment of the
Lodge, the whistle of the train (sent up for
us specially) is heart!, and at 5 p. m. are
cn route home, all feeling that they had a
niee time and that AVetlnesday, 3rd June,
1 67-i, will be remembered as one of the
bright place's in their lives. Tlere were I
suppose near io0 persons present at the
dinner, and but for the threatening appear
ance of the clouds there would doubtless
have been twice, that number. There were
some pretty laches there who came as
though t hey desired to make an impression,
and I guess they did, and 1 can assure them
those Good Templar boys are worth catch
ing, and to make "assurance doubly sure "
they had better join the Order if not already
members. Before closing allow me to re
turn the heartfelt thanks of this Ixidge to
C apt. Avatson and agent Thomas for their i
kindness and efforts in our behalf. I hope j
at no distant day wc shall lie able to return j
the compliment to our brethren and sisters
of Tar Biver Lodge. Long may they live,
grow and flourish, and lie a power against
the Demon Intemperance. P. Y.
