tion in the legislation on the subject
of Civil Rights last winter, it may
not be amiss to give the public a
few extracts from the Senate and
House Journal, taken by the writer
from the Secretary of State's office
and hence in every respect authen
tic. On the 17th of January, 1874
as can be seen on page 296, House
Journal, Session 1873-74, Mr.
Houston (Democrat) introduced " a
resolution protesting ayainst the
passaye of the Civil Rights Bill
hy Congress. Williamson, lladieal,
offered the following as a substitute
for the resolution :
': Resolved by the House of Rep
resentatives, the Senate concurring,
that our Senators be instructed and
our Representatives requested to
vote for such a bill as will secure
equal, civil and political rights,
against all bills tending to an en
forcement of social equality."
The vote was taken on William
son's substitute as above, and it was
voted down, ayes 4t, nays "", as
Fertile substitute: Abbott, Bean,
lilythe, Brown, Brown of Davidson,
Cry an of Pitt, Bryan of 7alifax,
Cryan of Wilkes, Brooks, Bunn,
Cobb, Copeland, Carson, Cox, Dud
ley, Ellison, Fletcher, Foster, kc,
I'J in number and all Radicals.
Against the substitute
were cast, all of which were Demo
crats. Mr. Jones, Democrat, offered an
amendment to the origins i vi
tion as follows :
" Resolved, That the General
Assembly of Xorth Carolina do
most earnestly and respectfully pe
tition the Congress of the United
States not to pass the Bill now
pending in the House of Represen
tatives, known as the Supplemental
Civil Rights Bill, believing as we
do, that the immediate effects of
such a law would be the suppres
sion of our public schools, for both
white and colored, the closing of
many of our houses of worship, the
ruin of our Landlords and hotel
proprietors, as well as the thorough
demoralization of our society and
the cause of bitter strife between
" From a thorough knowledge of
the situation we are satisfied that
the bill would operate disastrously
to our best interests, and therefore
we prefer this our petition."

Ellison noted fur the Resolution,
and afterwards moved to reconsid
er. He opposed it, thu3 showing
the Radical party a unit for the
It will be seen from the foregoing
that our Representatives, Bunn and
Cobb, were thoroughly identified
with the friends of the Civil Rights
Bill and supported it in every way
they could. The adoption of the
amendment offered by Mr. Jones,
with Mr. Cobb's vote recorded
against it, shows that he favored
the passage of the Civil Rights
Bill and hence would not protest
against it, and his vote on William
son's substitute shows that he voted
for the nearest approximation to the
bill he thought possible of obtain
ing. It is in direct contradiction
to official record, as well as the ac
tion of the Radical party of this
county on the 1st of January, and
in the nominating
well as in private conversations,
and frequent public speeches, we
say it is in direct contradiction of
all of these for Mr. Cobb now to
say he does not favor Civil Rights.
Our worthy Senator's, Alexander
(The Great) McCabe's, connection
with the infamous bill, by which the
white people of the South was hoped
to be degraded and the purity of
their race poluted, can be shown in
a very few words. On page 183,
Senate Journal, Session 1873-4,
McCabe's name will bo found, with
only five others, recorded squarely
in favor of Epps' Civil Eights reso-
ution. Epp3 is negro Senator from
These facts show beyond contra
diction that both Cobb and McCabe
did all in their power in their offi
cial capacity to fasten upon the
people of our county, where we are
already oppressed by all the evils
of negro supremacy, the Congress
ional bill by which the poorer class
es of our white people would be
subject to the lowest humiliation
and the purity of their race threat
ened. Will true white people push
forward their wicked designs by
helping them to office? Will a
man who loves his people sign an
official bond for these Civil Right-

Gov. Caldwell's private charac

knew him, but his violent partizan
prejudices were carried to too grea
an extent to rank him as an effi

too often lost in the partizan.
The Convention that met at
Goldsboro has thought best to make
no nomination for Congress in this
district, and our county Convention
last Saturday auopteu the same
policy and will have no candidates.
There will therefore be more re
sponsibility resting iipon each in
dividual voter. There will be no
candidates to go among the people
to arouse them to their duty and
the work will devolve upon the
leading citizens in the arious pre
cincts (or townships, as we are
compelled to call them now). The
politicians have yielded to the will
of the people in having no candi-
dates and the people should show

TEE PROSTRATE STATE.
What a sad story of political li
centiousness is told in this extract
from the Charleston 2Teics and
Courier of Friday: "In only
nineteen of the thirtytwo counties,
in South Caroliua one hundred and
forty-six square miles of land have
been sold for State and county
taxes, and live hundred and thirty
seven square miles of land have been
forfeited to the State at tax sales
during the current year."
Do you say, we should not enter
tain such bitter feelings as to de
cline to sign a man's bond because
he is a Republican ? Then why not
vote for him ? You should refuse
to sign the bond of a Civil Righter,
because by doing so you do a huns
dred times more to further the in
famous measure than if you had
voted for him, It is a duty you
owe the purity of the white race,
and especially the poorer classes, to
do all you can to oppose the Civil
Rights, though you thereby refuse
a favor to a warm personal friend.
We are in receipt of the first

We are of the opinion that Rad
icalism would have been dead in
Edgecombe, if the leaders had been
unable to give their bonds. Let's
try the remedy and see if we can
find men who would be such zealous
leaders of the negroes if they could
not thereby get some fat office.
However much you may like a
man personally you have no right
to put him in office if he entertains
dangerous political views. It is
not the man we endorse, but his
politics, when we vote for him or
sign his bond.
The New York Herald, in com

" Atiout ten vears airo, while residing in
New Jersey, I had a violent attack of chills
and fever. 1 he chill would come on regular-
lv about ten o'clock, and continues for near
ly two hours, followed by a burning fever for
more than live hours, which no medicine
would relieve: and I became so weak that I
could hardly walk across the room, and could
not ascend one flight of ftairs in less time
than ten minutes. My life became a burden
to inc. I loathed every kind of food, and
every kind of food, and even water tasted to
me like copperas. I could get no refreshing

me no relief, and 1 was fast sinking into ihe
grave. One dav a lady persuaded me to pur
chase a box Bellamy's Pills. I took three at
twelve o'clock noon, and three at night. Af
ter taking the two doses I felt better, and that

As tcu o'clock approached I prepared myself

eatiusr a hearty dinner at one o clock, I took
three more pills, and at night three more.
The next morning, after a delightful night's
rest, 1 arose at seven o'clock, feeling quite
well ; and although still very weak, yet I was
able to cujoj- my food, and wllPthur mtiuK a

Messrs. Culver Brothers: We cheerfully
grant you permission to use our names as
you see proper in commendation of your
" Farmer Cooking Stove," for we regard it
as being altogether the best cooking stove
in use, and is all that is desirable in a stove
for it is simple in construction, has no dam
pers or flues to burn out, and bakes quick
and beautifully. We bespeak for you a
liberal patronage from our neighbors and
friends, believing, as we do, that none who
purchase one of these stoves will ever regret
it, but will consider it a rare prize. our
enterprise merits success and we hope you
will attain it.
