Those avIio arc buried in the black
depths of Radicalism and have ex
perienced the evils resulting from
negro supremacy, like the white
people of Edgecombe, can truly aps
predate the partial deliverance
v.-hich the Oth day of August re
echoed from the mountains to the
seashore. Thank God ! the Con
scrvative masses on that day arose
in their true greatness, and the
government of the old North State
passed again into the hands of her
true and noble sons. The voice of
an outraged people has justly dealt
cut to Radicalism that fate which
it so richly deserved, and the dem
ogeguie and ambitious leaders of the
corrupt and ignorant horde which
has ;-o long threatened their moral,
jci::l and material interest, have
b-jcn compelled to show their true

AMONG TIIE HILLS.
A man's condition may well be
coveted who can leave the sultry
clime of the eastern portion of our
State and spend the long hot days
of August among the hills of that
section of North Carolina that
binds it with the " mother of States
and statesmen " the noble old com
monwealth of Virginia. With a
landscape unsurpassed in beauty
andaricty; the swift waters of
the Dan coursing in endless incan
dcrings throughTertile valleys team
ing with luxuriant corn ; the hills
rising one after another like mighty
waves of a troubled sea, suggesting
the fancy that there occured a sud
den and powerful congelation of
the earth's surface while under the
influence of a storm during its
nebulous state ; the prospect from
an elevated point extending for
miles and including in its distant
horizon glimpses of branches of the
far-off Blue Ridge : the whole
farming for the old county of Cas
well, from which the writer indites
this letter, a picturesquer.ess of
scenery equal to almost any spot
upon the face of the earth. The
climate too is delightful, the nights
are cool and a brisk breeze renders
the days peculiarly pleasant. There
has scarcely been a day during the
past two weeks when woolen cloth
inghasnot been comfortable. With
such advantages it seems a wonder
that this section is not more appre
ciated and occupied by a . denser
population. For the writer the
hills of Dan have a peculiar fascin
ation, and when upon memory's
wings we go back to the loved scenes
of childhood and in fancy point the
picture of a mellow summer eve as
the sun sinks in grandeur behind
the hills and the "herd winds slow
ly o'er the lea," we adopt with pe
culiar pathos the sentiment express
ed so beautifully by a -rifted son of
Xcrth Carolina whose untimely fate
gives it a tender interest.
' The breezes that around theia play,
And the bright stream they fan,
Are loved as scenes o! child, hood's day,
Amid the Hills of Dan.
Hero, too, tl:c friends of early days,
There fated courses ran ;
And now they lind a resting place
Aiuid ti.e Hills of Dan.''
The people of this section, the
Piedmont portion of North Ca.ro-
Gplina, are refined and intelligent, of
good morals and steady habits, of
virtue and honor and honesty, and
have furnished many most useful
men to the councils of our State
and to the various professions and
industries. To a large extent of
Virginian c-xtroction, they possess
to a considerable degre that indi
viduality of character and honest
pride which have done so much to
render illustrious that good old
State. They were hearty support-
04 tliC utheni cause in the war
uetwccn t!l States, and, bavins
ownC(1 a large number of slaves,
suffcre-I much by the disastrous
termination of that simple.
Tll0aSU cast n, however, they
are not overwhelmed, and are hard
at wor'c endeavoring to repair their
StiattorCl1 fortunes and build up
JiCir country, ihe enormous and
unwarranted tax, however, that has
been placed upon their principal
prJduct, Tcbacco, since the war,
Las had the ercct to render thek
labors bu little renumerative, and

Congressman could be
engaged m no
better work than
place and influence in
great incubus now
resting upon the industry of his
peopie. A few farmers are for-.
saking the cultivation of Tobacco
and are trying the growing of cot
ton, which many maintain can be
successfully cniri mrorl rm th; 1.,,;.
tude. We have no doubt
The rr.r.3 nf i;,i,n
olina this year'are not promising.
The wheat after being threshed
docs not yield as largely as was
expected and the injury to the
young plants by the fly made the
crop of tobacco planted very small,
which wa.3 still farther diminished
by the drought iu July. A third
of a crop is not expected. The
corn crop was also greatly shorten-,
ed by the druoght.
The manufacturing interest of
this section is looming up into con
siderable prominence. Beside the
immense cotton factories on the
Haw liver, there are now several
extensive tobacco manufacturing
establishments ct Durham's, two in
the town of Milton which payout
weekly to their operatives a3 wages
about i00, and lesser ones in va
rious places in the adjacent couns
tics. The abundant water power
of this portion cf North Carolina
furnishes unlimited facilities for all
kinds cf manufacturing, and capi
talists would do well to examine it
before locating at more northernly
points where intense cold locks
up their machinery for so many
months in the year.
The political excitement has all
subsided and a perfect quiet reigns
after the storm. We regret to note
that our party suffered considerably
by so-called independent cadidates,
but whose independence becomes
very questionable when it is seen to
work altogether against the Con
scrvative party, to which they pre
tend to belong, and in favor of the
Radicals, whom they effect to de
spise. If there is a southern man of
southern principles in Edgecombe

Jf there is a southern man of

county who favors Intermarriage
between the races, let him put his
signature to Duggans bond !
For these three evils are included
in that infernal measure, the Civil
Rights Bill, which Radicalism in
Congress wishes to jorce tipo)i the
whites of the South ; and, our word
for it, these three men to day stand
pledged to its support ! 1 1 '

The North Carolina Elections.
From tho New York Herald.
North Carolina has always claimed
to be a Democratic State, and no one
is surprised that she has proved it.
Tho Republican party carried tho
Stato in 1872 only by thoso extreme
and exceptional exertions which are
mad6 in Presidential elections. The
heavy pressure of the administration
having been withdrawn JNorth Oaro
lina takes her place among the Con
servativo States of the South, and is
likely to keep it unless the Eadical
party becomes much worse than l
was in 1872, which is impossible, or,
much better, which is improbable
iho administration cannot coerce
this State again, and it is not likely
it can pursuade it; for the victory of
tho Democracy is decisive. A major
ity much larger than any one had
reason to expect, a Democratic legis
lature and seven Democratic ivepre
senatives out of the eight which
North Carolina sends toCongress, aro
facts which should make it impossi
ble to change her political complex
ion in the next two years. The vic
tors havo tho situation iu their con
trol. They can intrench themselves
impregnably if they will only practice
honesty and economj', and enforce in
the Goverment those principles of re
form which havo almost disappeared
from public aii'aiis ia the South.
This is what tho Conservatives must
not fail to do if they would rightly
uso their ormortunitv. Thov would i
strive to make North Carolina every
thing which South Carolina is not-
The Democratic party at large
must not, however, assume too much
from this victory. It has not made
any new conquests, but has simply
reeovered i;s own. Tho great lie
publican States of tho South, with
their enormous negro majorities, re
main untouched by this victory. It
only shows and in a loss degree
than tho Democratic gains in Ten
nessee that tho civil rights bill is
weakening tho liepublican party in
the South and that the attempts of
the North to force it through Con
gress havo inspired the white South
ern voters with a new and energetic
spirit of resistance. It will bo inter
esting to watch tho eli'ect of these
Democratic success upon the tho third
term question, and to see if they may
not suggest to the South the rntiuiry
whether General Grant is absolutely
necessary to her restoration.

The celebrated author, in this admirable
Essay, clearly demonstrates, from a thirty
years' successful practice, that the aiainiing
consequences of self-abuse may be radically
cured without the dangerous use of internal
medicine or the application of the knife;
pointing out a mode of cure at once simple,
certain, and eilectual, by means of which
every sulferer, no matter what his condition
may he, may cure himself cheaply, private
ly, and radically.

of every youth and every man in the land.
