Chckcti-Bcksdig. Charles Bloomer,
formerly of this place, now residing at
Rocky Mount, has been arrested and heard
before a Justice on the charge of burning
the Baptist church at the Falls. There
was a considerable array of sundry evi

the accused and he was recognized in a
bond of $500 to appear at the next term of

colored, has also been arrested for the same
offence. Whoever is guilty ought to suf

of every article of clothing and left in that
condition. There is evidenca too that he
was whipped upon bis naked body by the
persons who committed the outrage. The

eight years. Perhaps next time they will
take a mmon pure Democrat.
As Offke. We hear that McCabe and
Cobb say they are put to a disadvantage on
the Civil Rights matter because we will
not allow the people to bear them through
our paper. It is rather unusual, but we
make the following offer. If Messrs.
Cobb and McCabe think we have misrepre
sented them in the matter of Civil Rights
we will give them an opportunity through
these columns to correct the mistake, pro
vided, however, that the communication
touches no other point and is not objection
able in tone.
Radicalism and Decency. We hear
that the Regular Rads, and especially
Alexander (the little), make the defamation
of Mr. John Norfleet and the Enquirer-
Southerner the burden of their harangues.
Now tli is is just in accord awe with the
nature of things. Mr. Norfleet was too
decent for pure radicalism and it threw
him overboard and vents its hatred against
him, and as we are the organ of the party
of decency, of course filth would be thrown
at us. But isn't. H funny, to think that
any little yankee would be so stupid as to
suppose his tirades to a negro audience
could effect a gentleman?

Bask Ball Match. Pursuant to a
challenge sent to the Stonewall Base Ball
Club by the Wilson Club, which was ac
cepted by the former, a match game was
played upon the base ball ground in the
Commons Wednesday evening. At the
end of the third ins the Stonewalls had
made four or five rounds more than its
competitor, but on the fourth the Wilson
Club succeeded in playing an extraordina
rily successful game which the Stonewalls
were not able to overcome, and the result
was a complete victory for the Wilson
Club, the score being 40 to 14.
The Wilson Club is composed of splen
did material, is tastily uniformed, well
drilled, and stands as the champion club of
North Carolina. Their generosity to their
unsuccessful but gallant foes, in giving the
first cheer for the fallen, is worthy of com
mendation. It is due the Stonewall Club
to mention that they have had but little
practice, the nine that played Wednesday
having never played together before.

A Sample Business Man. Some time
ago we met on the cars Mr. Geo. Allen, of
the firm of Geo. Allen & Co., dealers in
agricultural implements, Newbern, N. C.
During our conversation with this gentle
men we elicited certain facts in relation to
his business which are worthy of note and
which, we hope, we do no violence to pri
vacy in publishing.
Mr. Allen was the son of a clergyman
and commenced business in Newliern when
he was but sixteen as a clerk. At the age
of twenty-one he was enabled to commence
on his own account, or rather, as a partner
in the extensive agricultural house of
MitchelL Allen & Co.. where he remained
untill the death of Mr. Mitchell when ho
assumed chief control of the house. The
business has more than maintained itself
under Mr. Allen's supervision and to-day
is, we suppose, the most extensive of its
kind done in North Carolina. Liberality
and the free use of printer's ink are the
characteristic features of Mr. Allen in the
conduct of his business. He issues
monthly circular containing valuable in
formation, distributes 7000 copies of an
agricultural journal to his patrons during
the year, all gratis, and advertises not only
in every paper in his city but in nearly all
that circulate at all in his section. He
says he believes he receives a direct benefit
from his advertisement, but. even if he
did not, he thinks every merchant whose
business will justify it ought to spend at
least one or two hundred dollars a year
with his local papers, as they do so much
for the prosperity of his section.

Mr. Ross has et a good example and
shown a moral courage not often evinced.
Pitt County, July ;, 1874.
TO THE PEOPLE OF PITT COUNTY :
I take this method of telling the people
that I am no longer a candidate for a seat
in the House of Representatives of the next
General Assembly. I have seen the error
of what 1 have done, and as a MAN and a
CITIZEN, 1 seek the earli est opportunity
to undo it. I accented a nomination on
the Radicftl Ticket tu.dcr a mistaken ap- i
prehension of the false position I was tak
ing; 1 thought 1 could still be true to my
race and my people, hut my eyes have
been opened ly what I learned since the
campaign commencjd, and I find that the
Radical party is the friend of social equal
ity with the negro that this party has
nominated and is supporting in this Con
gressional District a nitui who has voted
for a hill in favor of mixed public schools,
aud what is worse, of forcing !NEGRO
GIRLS into our public seminaries of learn
ing with our daughters, notwithstanding
all their professions of opposition to such a
law. For these and other good reasons, I
cannot suffer the Radical party to use my
name in this canvass, and" I FORBID
THEM TO VOTE FORME. And to
assure my fellow-citizens that I am sincere,
and that I wish to remain true to my old
convictions as a Conservative-Democrat, I
shall heartily support the entire ticket
of this party at the coming election in

Messrs. Culver Brothers.
These gentlemen, who have made Char
lotte their headquarters bittce they have
been engaged in the selling of stoves in the
Carolinas, will leave us now in the course of
a week or two for new lields. We regret
this. Tne Culvers are men "chuck full" of
business and enterprise, ai:u it is always de
sirable to have such in a community. We
would be glad if they would settle in Char
lotte. Themselves gentlemen, they havebtought
with them only gentleaien as balesmen. It
is well known that traveling men as a class
are tpt to be uncouth, rowdy ish fellows,
and in most refined communities the very
name of traveling dealers is odious. But if
any such prejudice existed in this section
against the Culvers and thnir employes
when they first came here, it has all passed
away 'ere this ; for by their uniform courte
sy and good behavior they have made
friends of all those with whom they have
been thrown, and have effectually lived
down any enmity which miy have existed
toward them before they were known. For
some time past the whole party have been
boarding at the Central Hotel, in this city,
and though the average number has been
23 or 30 men, the proprietor, Mr. Eccles,
tells us that lie has yet to know of the first
instance where any ot.e of them has been
guilty of conduct unbecoming a gentlemen.
Often there has b.en as many as 10 of them

or better behaved set of men he never had

As to the quality of goods which they
have been selling; we know nothing of our
own knowledge. Cut the heavy sales which
they have made, and the fact that they
have received but one complaint from all
those to whom they sold, is a sufficient re
commendation for them wherever they may
go. Within the range embracing the coun
ties of Cabarrus, Union, Mecklenburg, Gas
ton, and one or two other counties in South
Carolina, on the line of this State, they have
sold upward of 600 of their stoves, aud have
given universal satisfaction to those with
whom they have dealt.
While they have sold a great many stoves,
the local dealers inform us that they have
not interfered materially with the local
trade, and that they believe that their hav-

I, C. L. Summers, Clerk of the Superior
Court for said county, do hereby certify
that the foregoing list contains the names of
respectable persons of this and adjoining
counties. They are gentlemen of veracity
and their statements entitle them to full
faith and credit.
C L. Sdmmbrs, Clerk Iredell Co.
The gentlemen engaged with us in the
sale of our stoves are men selected from
among the best in the South, most of whom
having been with us for years, and we can
truthfully say they sre men of undoubted
veracity, sober habits, industrious, and in
all things honorable. You may at all times
rely upon their word. We do not wish or
desire to force our stoves upon you, but
we are compelled to eat, and Nature has
kindly combined this necessity with a keen
enjoyment of a proper compliance. Thou
sands of pale-faced, sour-temperod, queru
lous dyspeptics have thanked God, and
taken fresh spirit and good humor since the
introduction of cooking stoves, and myriads
of the victims of the frying pan and burnt
biscuits will thank Culver Brothers for their
enterprise and energy in putting them with
in reach of all- The XlXth century is dis
tinguished for its capacity to eat, digest and
live. It owes this distinction, besides many
others of its great features, to the use of the
cooking stove. " We can live without poe
try, music and art ; we can live without
heart ; we can live without friends, we can
live without books, but civilized men can
not live without cooks. Man can live with
out books ; what is knowledge but grieving 1
He. can live without hope; what is hope but
deceiving 1 He can live without love ;
what is passion but f pining? but where is
the man that can live without dining V
