Thb Ekquibeb in that city. Our paper may
be found on file at their office, 134 West Bal
ELECTION AUGUST 6th, 1874.
FOR ScrERIVTENDEXT OF PrBi.io IxsTRrc
Stephen 13. Pool,
We are furnishing the public with our
paper for the Campaign at 50 cents.
Let our friends take advantage of this
The duties of a good citizen are
complex and manifold, considered
purely as a citizen. He is under
an obligation to his family as well
as society and the State, and he is
not fulfilling the demands of his
nature as long as he allows
himself to be absorbed in any one
or two ot these to the ignoring of
the others. A man is not living
up to his full requirements if he
devotes all his energy to the
promotion of the welfare of his own
family and does nothing for the
weal of the society in which he
lives and moves, nor for the state
that throws its arms of protection
about thb liberty of his person and
the enjoyment of his property.
The duties one owes his family are
so well guarded by an instinct of
his nature, his own love of self,that
it is rare that it becomes neccssa
ry for him to be reminded of them,
and it is that to society and the
state that has to be forced so fre
quently upon his attention.
It is not a simple subject of
school boy declamation that every
man exerts an influence on society
and is responsible for the way that
influence is used. It is to the be
nevolent operations of good men in
the community in which they live,
the word of encouragement, the well
seasoned precept and the upright
example, that the world owes most
of its present worth, and when this
power ceases It will be the stopping
of a wheel that governs a large part
of the better machinery of life.
And so also as society increases to
the State. Every man, considered
simply as an integral part of the
great whole, has his duty to per
form. If this fact were recognized
and acted upon, if each individual
would feel that he personally was
in part responsible for the evils that
afflict the state, howBoou would the
remedy be applied and the dishon
est office-holder be made to feel the
indignation of the people.
The family and social duties are
always imperative, but it is only
on statod occasions that the state
calls upon her sons for action in her
behalf. This summer is such a time
and North Carolina, burdened by
the shameful incubus of Radical
ism, calls upon her children for aid.
Will they prove recreant ? Heaven
A intelligent gentlemen of our
county who heard the various can
didates last Saturday at Bethel,
gives it a3 his opinion that Maj.
Yates will carry the first district by
a handsome majority. The Major
seems to make a good impression
wherever he goes, not only as a
man of sense, but as a man who
will command respect for his moral
worth and integrity. We need
sadly more public men of such
Our informant gives also as his
impression, formed from facts that
he was enabled to gather, that
Cobb and Ransom would both with
draw before the election in favor
of A. M. Moore, Esq. The Rads
have made several efforts to heal
the breach made by Ransom and
seem to think that it can be done
now by a mutual compromise be
twe en the rival candidates on one
not inimicable to either. The
shift, however, will be barren of
any beneficial result, for we hope
Maj. Yates holds the winning hand.
Another comet has been discoverd
in the vacinity of Jupiter so there
are now two to be seen in the heav
ens. The Richmond Enquirer
thinks if they should be running on
the same track, a collision is im
minent unless one or the other
The man who signs a Radical's
bond in this county does him a far
greater favor than five hundred
men who vote for him.
The Chairman of the Democratic
Executive Committee for Edge
combe, as will be seen elsewhere,
has issued a call for a convention
to take place in Tarboro' on next
Saturday, the 11th inst. It ia
earnestly hoped that a goodly num
ber of people will heed the call and
come and add their voices in the
council of the county. There is
considerable diversity as to the
expediency of any course to be
adapted, and hence there should be
a free and candid discussion before
any definite plan is settled upon
Your county has a right to your
advice, come and give it.

this gentleman was a pure patriot.
had done more for the Conservative
party than any dozen other men in
North Carolina, and wa9 entitled
to any office in the gift of the peo
pie ; and now, when the position
which he had a right to expect has
been given to another, to see him
doing all he can for his election,
regardless of adulations and entic
ing flatteries of friends and foes, is
a picture of self-sacrificing patriot
ism worthy of emulation. The
people will reward Mr. Turner yet
The Wilmington Journal, of Sat
urday, chronicles a case of larceny
committed by a negro, in New Han
over county, which came before
Judge Russell for trial at the last
term of Superior Court. The theft
was proved and the negro convicted
Thereupon in the tender yearning
of his heart for negro votes for
Judge, his Honor suspended judg
ment upon payment of costs and
turned the rogue loose upon the
community to ply his villiany
The negro had stolen some oats,
the property of Major C. W. Mc
Clammy. Whereupon the Journal
" Are the hard working white
people of this District willing to
go to the trouble and labor and
expense of planting, cultivating and
harvesting their crops to have them
stolen by negroes cr by rogues o:
any color ? Do they think it will
stop stealing when in a clear case
the judgment is suspended on pay
ment of cost and the rogue bound
over to the next Court to put him
on his good behavior i And what
is the good behavior of a convicted
rogue worth ? And yet this re
construction legacy of ours, Judge
Russell, thinks is an all sufficient
punishment for a rogue."
This is no rare occurrence among
The Philadelphia Ledger says
" While now in the heat of summer
trade and business of every charac
ter are exceedingly dull, there is
nevertheless an inceasing hopeful
ness as to the future in nearly all
financial and commercial depart
ments, with an evident improve
ment in the current traffic in many
descriptions of merchandise. The
foil trade, it is believed, will early
manifest increased spirit, the first
evidence of which will be more in
quiry for money, followed by higher
rates of interest."
The people of the State may
take courage, and believe that after
thi s and the next month passes,
their trade and finances will be in a
much better condition than for
some time past.
Have you ever realized the full
enormity of the Civil Rights bill,
and what a gross attack it was upon
the poorer classes of whites ? If so
how can your humanity allow you
to vote for or, still more, sign the
bond of a man who advocates it.
It is poor freedom indeed where
a man cannot act freely. The
colored man ws once a slave and
then had to act as he was told, now
he is perfectly free, yet he still acts
as a slave to Radical leaders. To
be free is to act freely.
