Your failure to rote may cause hi
ONE WORD MORE.
We ask your attention once more,
fellow-citizens, before you are called
upon to exercise one of the highest
duties and most sacred privileges of
a freeman, a privilege that was
bought with blood, a duty that none
can omit and be innocent.
Next Thursday, the people of
North Carolina will again be called
upon to express at the ballot box
their sentiment on the political
issue of the day. As we have here
tofore observed, there is no ques'
tion before the people involving
constitutional construction, as for
example the old Whig and Demo-
cratic discussions as to limits of
state sovereignty, no question as to
i lie best modes of remedying the
financial distresses of the country,
state or national, no arguments
upon free trade and monopoly
duties, in short there is really noth-'
inj: political upon which an ex
pression of opinion is asked, but it
is ;i struggle between the white
race and the black race, thrust upon
t.ie country by the latter, an effort
on the one part to degrade all na
tional aud state honor by placing
in offices of trust men of no
capacity and corrupt principles,
to tdevate ignorance over knowledge
vice over virtue, to ignore all time
honored institutions and obliterate
all traces of our past honorable
history in a word it is a commu
nistic attack upon American free
iloin, a base, vile effort of low and
designing men to place themselves
in power at whatever cost it may
be to the country at large. With
such a picture before us, a picture
upon which it would be well for
every father to look and contem
plate it as related to his children,
can any man doubt what must be
the duty of a true citizen? On
such an occasion does not failure to
act become almost as great a crime
as direct aid of the enemy ? Is it
not the plain duty of every one, not
only to goto the polls and vote, but
to use all his effort to influence all
in his reach to do likewise ? Then
let us go once more to the breach
and though in this county we be kept
ground down to the dust by negroes
led by a few wicked men, let us
ahvays cast our protest against it
and, with the determined firm
ness of the Old Guards of Napo
leon, fearlessly make the attack
again and again though certain de
await us. The day will yet come
when right shall rule and truth be
GEO. W. BLOUNT.
It will be seen that we have hois
ted upon our mast-head the name
of this gentleman as our candidate
for Congress. He is known to most
of ouv readers and we hope they will
turn out in force and support him
against the negro Civil Rights can
didate, John A. Hyman. With the
divisions in the Radical ranks there
is a possibility that Mr. Blount may
be elected if the people will turn
out in force and work for him. You
can afford to vote against any Rad
ical candidate if you can thereby
gain a vote for Blount. Turn out,
fellow citizens, and work.
" COMING SIR."
The Albemarle Titties thus very
aptly expresses the way the Radi
Ringmasters manage their slaves :
When the ringmaster in the cir
cus cracks his whip and cries out
"this way Mr. Merryman," the
clown comes tumbling out with his
humble " coming sir." The black
epectators always laugh very heart
ily at the clown's discomforture.
If therefore when the Radical ring
masters crack their whips and cry
out " this way Mr. Blackman " and
the black men all yell out "com
nig sir," they must excuse our
laughing. We are certain their
discomforture is much greater than
THE THIRD TERM.
The best way to put an end to
the third term discussion, in the
opinion of the Boston Advertiser,
is to refuse to discuss it as a pos
sibility under any circumstances.
It says there is not a shred of res
pectable evidence in favor of the
assertion that the President disires
a renomination, and adds : " It is j
certainly to be hoped that no such
disease affects the ambition of the
occupant of the White House, for
if it does, he will be likely to have
an experience of unpleasant mortify
cation by and by. The American
p:ople sometimes consent to unpre
cedented things but there must be
unprecedented reasons for doing so.
The idea that they will sanction an
attempt in the present condition of
the country to continue the same
administration through three terms
is preposterous. No matter what
the President's merits, and no
matter what office-holders may be
willing to do, the people will veto
any such aspiration. The scheme
could not bo forced through a party
convention without disrupting it,
and if it were consummated in con
vention, a way would be found to
stamp the act with popular condem
nation." The Petersburg New3
thinks this is all very good talk, but
says there are more things occurr
ing in the present day than were
ever dreamed of in the experience
orjphilosophy of the past.

The following is the amendment
to the Constitution proposed by the
Rads in the event the Civil Rights
bill is passed. The' fear the
odiou3 bill may break up the pres
ent system of public education and
design to furce mixed schools bv
Article 10. If any State shall
fail to maintain a common school
system under which all persons
between the ages of five and
eighteen years, not incapacitated
for the same shall receive, free of
charge, such elementary education
as Congress may prescribe, the
Congress shall have power to es
tablish therein such a system and
cause the. same to be maintained at
the expense of such State.
It must sometimes appear to the
colored people strange, that while
we profess an interest in their wel.
fare and a desire to see them ad
vance as ood citizens, ive should
take such extreme Dolitical jrrounds
against them. We will explain.
Soon after the war the whites
showed the colored people that they
were willing tc divide the offices
and give the negroes such as they
were qualified to hold, and have on
various occasions since manifested
the same spirit of equitable compro
mise, but have been uniformly met
with no advance on the part of the
colored people, who have listened
only to such leaders as Mabson
McCabe, Bunn, Cobb, Dug
gan, kc, and arrayed them
selves in solid ranks against the
white people, who can be ex
pected to do nothing more than to
accept the situation . It therefore be
comes the white man's and the black
man's parties, and the few white
men who go on the opposite side
should be treated as their chosen
The published charges of Tilton
against Mr. Beecher would show a
strong case against that gentleman
it were not that it also show3 Tilton
to be a most consummate knave and
a dirty dog. By Tilton's own con
fession he is a low free-lover and
a base liar, and the public should
be slow to condemn upon the testi
mony of such a witness a man who
stands pre-eminent in the Protest
ant Evangelical Church and whose
ministerial and private character
have been unsullied for nearly half
a century of public life.
If the people, of Edgecombe had
been true to themselves and to their
political principles, and had con
stantly refused to sign the bonds of
Radical officers, scalawagism, car
pet -bagism, negro supremacy and
the whole spawn of Radicalism
would have been crushed out and
the offices of honor and trust would
have been filled by the good and
true men of the county. If even
now we adhere strictly to our prin
ciples, we will soon carry our point.
IW WHO W ILL BETRA Y HIS PARTY,
INSULT HIS PEOPLE, STIGMATIZE

FOR OR SIGNING THE BOND OF A
CIVIL RIGHTER ?
We are of the opinion that Rad
icalism would have been dead in
Edgecombe, if the leaders had been
unable to give their bends. 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.

A new registration is not requir
ed for the August election, but
every man who has changed his
residence since last election, must
register or he cannot vote. Every
voter who has heretofore registered,
should spend one day in examining
the. registration books to see if his
name is on them. Unless your
name is on them you cannot vote.
See about your registration.
McCabe, Cobb & Co., say they
are not in favor of the Civil Rights.
Do they noi; endorse Hyman, col
ored, for Congress? Is not Hy
man in favor of Civil Rights, and
will he not vote for the bill when
he gets to Congress ? When Cobb,
& Co., vote for Hyman do they
not indirectly vote for Civil Rights ?
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.
Every colored man will vote in
the coming election. Will the
white men be so recreant to their
right3 as not to v.ote against this
Civil Rights Bill.
