LET US REASON TOGETHER I
In times of political elections ex
citement is apt to run so high and
party feeling became so intense that
v,e feel that it. is almost impossible
to discuss a great state issue -with
that degree of fairness that its mag
nitude deserves. And hence it has
occurred to us that the press would
be better fulfilling its mission, if it
would devote a larger portion of its
attention in quiet times to the full
development of those great ques- j
tions that it knows must be of vital
interest to the country, i,u order
that people may vote more from
conviction than from passionate
m-eiujiee. There are, for instance,
many, questions that
i i i -j
j 1 i. i
commanded the deep thought and
attentive concern of our people.-
Lea vino- out of consideration the
0 P , c
hTroat uuestion 01 national tinance,
taxation, import and export duty,
&c, the subject of the State debt is
one that ought to have elicited at
tentive study and close argument of
the press and candidates of all po
litical opinions. The entire absence
of all such topics, however, from
political discussions indicates that
politics is not what it once was, and
that there is more at issue now
than a simple difference in theories
of government or policies of state
action. The point at issue is cal
eulated to arouse feeling, but we
will try to discuss it without excite
ment. The all absorbing topic for us of
North Carolina just now is the sub
ject of Civil Rights. What ia Civil
Rights, and why do we oppose it?
Are we less benevolent than our
brethren of the North ? Is it inhu
inanity with us, selfishness and a
want of christian regard for those
aiiout us : v e are ol the opinion
that the Southern character will
bear as good a test for generosity,
just dealings, and a proper regard
for the fee-lings of others, as any
other upon the face of the earth.
Then there mast be some reason,
unnoticed by the cursory observer,
why the good people of the South
approve the passage of the Civil
The origin of the bill is in intense
hatred against the South. It is the
emanation cf one who upon his death
bed had no word of consolation for
the wife ef his bosom, from whom
we have no evidence that a prayer
ascended for preparation to stand
before the bar to which he was has
tening, from one who was callous to
all else save the perpetuation of the
persecution of a people torn, con
quered and bleeding, and who should
have elicited his brotherly sympa
thy. It is loc;il too in its applica-
n effect whatever
subversive of American republican-,
ism. It is an unjust and wicked
attack upon the poorer cbtss of our
white people, whom alone it can
effect. It attacks the purity of our
race. It is ruinous to our system
of education, the height of folly as
a matter of legislation and tyran
nous in its inception.
Ur on a state like North Carolina,
where there is so large a popula
tion of black, and especially upon
a county like this and many others
in the State, the passage of the
Civil Rights Bill would fVl like a
pall, bringing desolation, civil strife,
all species of social disorders, and
clog the advance of civilization for
years. If this be true, and we leave
it to tl le reader's judgment to say
whether the picture is overdrawn, it
becomes a crime against society
and a sin against humanity for one
to endorse such a measure. If this
consequence is correctly drawn, does
it not logically follow that the per
son who helps a Civil Righter to
office is also guilty and should he
held respensiblc for his views?
Most assuredly it does. It matters
not how honest and sincere one
may believe the Civil Righter to
he, and however dear a friend he
miy be, he owes it as a solemn duty
to his people to do all he can to
prevent the holder of such senti
ments from getting in places of pow
er. Nov let us make a personal ap

Reference is made to the extraordinary cure
of Pi ofessor Lawrence, Principal ol the In
stitutes of Elocution at New York and Phila
delphia. He says as follows :
" About ten years ago, while residing iu
New Jersey, I had a violent attack of chills
and fever. The chill would come on regular
ly 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 1
could hardly walk across the room, and could
not usceud one flight of stairs in less time
than ten minutes. My life became a burden
to me. I loathed every kind of food, and
every kind of food, and even water tasted to
me like copperas. I could get no refreshing
sleep either by night or by day ; the medi
cines prescribed for me by physicians gave
me no relief, and I was fast sinking into the
grave. One day 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 dotes I felt better, and that
night, for the first time in three month,slept
lor fully eight hours. The next morning 1
felt much better, and took three more pills.
As ten o'clock approached I prepared myaelf
for mv daily chill, but to my intense joy my
unwelcome visitor did not come ; and after
eating a hearty dinner at one o'clock, I took
three more pills, and ut night three more.
The next morning, after a delightful night's
rest, 1 arose at sevcti o'clock, feeling quite
well ; aud although still very weak, yet I wap
able to enjoy ray looil, and whether eating or
drinking, everything tasted sweet and pleas
ant to me. In about seven days' time I was
strong enough to walk four miles, and felt
perfectly cured. Ten year have elapsed
4nse then, aud I have never had anothei at
;lick cf Chills and Fever.
