Mr. Editor : The people of this town
and County arc so unfortunate as to be
without a newspaier. e have no enter
prising Journal like yours to disseminate
the local andpublic events that are con
stantly occurring to our county people. To
partially obviate total obscurity, I shall
occasionally offer you a letter touching the
matters ot importance that may trom time
to time arise and are worthy of record.
At the present time politics is the grand
theme with the great majority of the den
izens of old Martin. From the anxious
and extiectant candidate to the pompous
and conceited negro, from morning until
far later than " dewy eve iu-e heard po
litical discussions, private electioneering,
all intersjersed with frequent whisky
drinking aud consequent rowdyism. The
political horoscope is not clear enough to
venture anything like an opinion as to the
probable result of the approaching election
in this county. 1 he Radicals have the
prestige of a former victory, and are using
all the means in their power to insure suc
cess; whereas the Democrats, although
they suffered defeat at the last county elec
tion are determined to make a bold and
valiant fight, and if the entire strength of
the party can be marshalled we will have
a new order of things in our county gov
ernment for the next two years. But aside
Ve are cheered with prospects ot good
crops, tne cotton crop in tins section is
decidedly good, and the corn is above an
average. Jt an abundant yield does re
sult, the fall trade will be good, and our
farmers who are really the base of our
existence will be stimulated to greater
vigor in the pursuance of their avocation,
which is the noblest af all pursuits.
There is no reason why your paper should
not have a very general circulation in this
county ; indeed, with a little effort, you
could introduce vonr paper into manv'
households in this county, where it is now
unknown. You contemporary, the "Ro
anoke News " has gained quite an exten
sive circulation here. It has secured one,
or perhaps two local contributors from this
place ; and although I do not mean, or wish
to be understood, as animadverting upon
the eminent fitness of these correspondents,
vet I am in defense of facts and plain
truth, bound to state, that these corres
pondents of the paper in question, have, iu
then- graphic descriptions ot certain per
sonal events that transpired here recently,
gone far beyond the statement of the actual
facts of the incidents reported, i or in
etaece, in a late issue of that paper, they
magnify a personal difficulty; between two
of the citizens of this place into a most
dreadful fight. I would suggest to the
" News " that it prepare and publish a
solemn article on truth and call the espe
cial attention of their Williamston corres
pondents to it. But a truce to the "News,
I have occupied too much of your space
now. You may expect to hear from me
Radical Meeting on Saturday.
On Saturday last, heaven be thanked ! the
Radicals of this county concluded for two
years their harrangucs to negro audiences.
About 10 o'clock a "Circus" crowd of
blacks front the country made an appear- i
ance, and as we soon thereafter saw
McCalie and Mabson, Cobb am1 Bunn, ;
Duggau aud Turner, Civil Rights confreres,
bobbing" their heads together and locking
arms affectionately with the "man and
brother," we safely concluded there was
something in the wind and accordingly ad
journed to the Court House.
When we arrived, Willis Buun had pos
session of the stand. He occupied an hour
with one of his characteristic, abusive, im
pudent and vulgar speeches, if such a tir
ade of impudence and viliiain' could lie ac
corded the dignity of a speech. Never in
one hour did we hear such loud-mouthed
and sweeping denunciations of the white
man fall from the lips of a negro dema
gogue. If there is a democrat in the coun
ty who is undecided in regard to becoming
the official bondsman for the Radicals elect,
we wish he could have been in town to
have heard the infamous remarks which
the fertile imagination of this evil-designing
wretch could alone well conceive. He
gloated over the fact that in the proud old
county of Edgecombe, he could lord it over
the chivalrous white man who was power
less to help himself and who had lorded it
over him until the days of reconstruction.
He did not forget to handle with gloves off
Battle Bryan, independent candidate for
Sheriff, forliplonsing to the "Patrons of
Husbandry." Bunn tried to say that this
organization was on aristocratic conspiracy
to deprive the poor white man and negro
of their labor and lights ; therefore, he ar
gued, a man connected with this organiza
tion was unfit to be a 'publican aud shouldn't
receive the support of the great National
Republican party, lie reminded, further
more, His Highness, the Sheriff, of "Her

which colored prisoners received when in
Godwin, white, candidate for the lower
House, was next announced and duly made
his abearance. lie. spoke a little over
ten miuufes ami about as rapidly as a
school boy in his first attempt at declama
tion. He seemed to kuow equally as well
what to do with his hands which he kept
head -high all the time. His speech
was decidedly a poorer excuse than those
which the little yankee generally greets his
dear negroes with.
McD. Mathewsou then commenced to
orate apparently in the interests of the de
funct "Bolters," and his opening remarks
unquestionably indicated that he proposed
to speak several truths to the colored peo
ple which would be poorly relished by the
Court House ring ; but after a few min
utes, McCabe gave the signal, and he was
so seriously interrupted by cries of "pull
him down, he's a democrat " and the like
from the rabble under the leadership of the
lackey, Mabson, that he was compelled to
desist, and left the place mad enough, as
he was understood to say. to see the whole
concern d d.
Then came Mabsou's turn to harangue
the black horde before him. He vied with
his collegue, Bunn, in his filthy and obscene
remarks, which w ere gulped dow n like so
much rot-gut by the sea of dupes assem
bled in the Courthouse square, and which
out of regard for the decency of our col
umns we refrain from commenting upon.
After giving vent to all the spleen his mal
ice could originate against the white race

contamination of white blood) he was base
enough to arouse the animal passions of
the black multitude in the sound of his
voice by such wilful and false insinuations
as the first victory for democracy meant
the re-enslavement of the colored people
t'.iat white men in Edgecombe were in
augurating schemes to deprive him of the
life so precious to the colored men, women
and children of Edgecombe county. This
he knew to be a lie when he uttered it, and
we have no sympathy for a being who
prostitutes the sacredness of truth to get
the passions of his ignorant supporters in-
I flamed enough to enable him to carry out
his nefarious, wicked, hellish designs
against the lives and property of the white
people of this count y. When forbear
ance passes that point when it ceases to be
a virtue, and if he still continues in a no
tion to sacrifice his life for the welfare of
his persecuted (?) race, if he will then in
form us of the fact, we will with the great
est imaginable pleasure drop a postal card
to the skilful Ku Klux, Tommie Purnell,
whom he supported yesterday for Superin
tendent of Public Instruction, to come
down from Raleigh and perform the dirty
job. This demagogue, No. 2, went on to
state that next winter the "representatives
of the party of Reform aud Progress" in
the Congress of the United States would
pass unamended the Civil Rights bill as re
turned by the Senate, and arrogantly boasted
of the pleasure he would take in showing
white folks whether or not be would eat,
sleep and drink iu the Tarboro' hotels.
And just here be boldly asserted that the
man who said the Republican, party in
Edgecombe was opposed to Civil Rights
was an infamous i.iak. This certainly let
the "cat out of the bag" a was concerned
McCabe, Cobb and Duggan who have been
trying for months past to hoodwink the
Democracy of the county by claiming to be
opposed to Civil Rights, iu order to get
signatures to their official bonds. And how
thin such declarations are in the face of
tliis confession on the part of their spokes
man, under whose ami pits each alternate
ly keeps his nose to become savored with
the unadulterated essence of pure Radical
ism. How can these white men who have
stigmatized their families and entailed up
on their children an odium which will ever
le nauseous to decent society as long as
the white race preserves its identity ; who
have been traitors to their country aud their
race ; who are now doing their utmost to
elevate an inferior race to the level of so
cial equality ; who advocate, in being in
full accord with the radical party, inter
marriage between the races ; who favor
mixed schools, on the whole, the ruin of
this land in the degradation of the white
race, have the brazen affrontery to solicit
the insulted and abused white man to be
come their bondsman. We repeat, it will
be brazen effrontery, an outrageous insult
for McCabe, Cobb and Duggan to ask a
white man in the county of Edgecombe
who claims to be a "southern maa of
southern principles " to subscribe to their
official bonds, and it ought to lie resented
Malison's speech gave us a full dose of
disgust, and we left; consequently we fail
ed to hear the lesser guns and missed the
eloquent (?) remarks of the sable Cobb and
being edified by the wisdom of Alexander,
the statesman the little yank who thinks
his tirade of abuse and impudence to an
ignorant horde of negroes can effect a gen
tleman in the esteem of the wealth and in
telligence of Edgecombe, and whose petty
acts of malice, the editor of this paper has
treated with that profound contempt and
merciful silence to which insolent imbecility
is ever entitled.
Affray. There was an affray between
Manuel Jones and Joe Staton at the plan
tation of John W. Staton, Esq., Friday.
It seems that Manuel wished to whip his
wife, who was Joes' sister, and in at
tempting to do so. Joe give him an ugly
cut on the head with a bat. His worship,
Clein Camper, sustained Joe by virtue of
the decision of the Supreme Court, Settle
delivering the opinion, in the recent case
of wife whipping from one of the Western
counties. Hurrah for Clem !
Crazy. One Geo. Washington Richards,
col'd, was pronounced insane on Friday by
Drs. Baker and Macnair and promptly sent
to the Edgecombe Alms House for treat
ment. The day before his arrest, he af
forded much amusement to some and to
others something different. We were un
fortunate enough to be among the latter.
(Juietly sitting in front of our door with
feet against the sill and deeply interested
in Woodson's hoax in the News on the
" Grass Widowers " of Raleigh, we were ap
proached by George with a question which
foiled to attract our attraction, and before
we knew it, a lick somewhere about the
face landed us on our back four feet from
where we were sitting, into the street.
Woodson was the cause of the mishap and
the first time we meet him, woe be unto

The " Gentlemen is Black," who is the
