Bill Battle Says that we did him a
wrong in speaking of his failure to airest
an obstreperous man on the street a week
or ten days ago. He says it was not his
day in charge and that it was not his duty
to arrest until ordered. If Bill is correct it
is a great fault in our police system. It
should be the duty of every policeman to
arrest immediately every disorderly person
he finds on the street.

things about our absence on the tith inst., 1

an extent that it would not think we would

Watermelons. We have to thank Col.
Cromwell and Mr. James Lawrence for two
of the finest watermelons that have graced

A QrERY. It is generally reported that
Allen Turner, colored, is to be appointed
jailor when Mr. Joseph Cobb, Sheriff elect,
a.-sunies the duties of that office. We
have reliable proof at hand that Allen Tur
ner is a common criminal, and we ask Mr.
Cobb if he will place in the responsible po
sition of jailor, a man convicted of theft at
the Superior Court of Northampton coun
ty? Gen. Co.x, the Solicitor for that district,
informs us that he prosecuted and convic
ted this self-same individual, under the
alias Allen Green, of hog-stealing from a
colored man in the above mentioned county.
e trust Mr. Cobb will not impose up
on the decency of the county by apK)int
ing a thief jailor.

The President and Secretary are also ex
officio members of the Executive Commit
tee. The Bond. Not Judge Bond nor the
bond of matrimony, but the all-pervading,
all-absorbing Sheriff's, Clerk's and Regis
ter's bond. Messrs. McCabe, Duggan and
Cobb, noble Civil Righters and followers of
Butler, have lieen elected by the colored
people of this county to these important
positions and, now that the campaign is
over, are busy electioneering with the
whites to enable them to complete their
victory. It is said that one or two of these
officials elect profess to have made all ar
rangements and are perfectly sanguine
about giving their bonds on the first Mon
day in Scptemlier, but we cannot yet lie
lieve that the white people of Edgecombe
can be so untrue to themselves as to aid to
office men of such political sentiments.
No personal friendship ought to justify
one in signing the bond of a Civil Righter.
White people, the negroes of this county

Compliment to the Pees. The Rev
W. G. Starr, in a sermon delivered at the
Granby street Methodist Episcopal Church,
last Sunday night, says the Norfolk Vir
ginian, paid the following just and deserv
ed compliment to the press :
"We live in an age of light. Daikuess
may live for a time under craven roof, but
there she cannot aw eu torever. 1 ne migu
ty voice of the people will be heard, and
the people are shouting for light. The pul
pit gives her imperial answer every Sab
bath ; the press nags tne ecno uacK mrougii
aU the year. The newepaper reaches tlie
man who never enters the sanctua-.
Give to any land the freedom of the press,
and you bring the very sun out ot the sky
to kindle the light of truth in that land.
The wrong may be hidden for awhile, but
the press will unearth it. The foot of the
criminal may be fleet, and the barrier be
hind him strong, but the liana ot tne press
will drag him from his retreat among the
rocks and scourge him to the scaffold in
the presence of all the people. Yes, I say,
thank God for the liberty of the press.

Aug. 12th, 1874.
Editor Enquirer-Southerner :
Every true son of North Carolinia re
joices at the grand results of your recent
election, and it is to be hoped that the glory
of the victory will not be marred by acts
of thoughtlessness and passion. Success,
in these days, is too frequently insulted by
rashness and our people are the last in the
world who ought to move in any direction
until they have weighed the step faithfully
and fully considered not only the imme
diate but the probably results that might
arise by their taking it. Reared in a warm
climate and educated under a sun that
imparted to their natures quick resentment
and action, it well becomes thcnijio guard,
with jealous care, every act ami expres
sion, They can be cautious, prudent and
wise without being political on any other
kind of cowards. By nature they are
brave and chivalrous, and never was there
a time when these noble features can con
duce more to make their state the bright
est star in our constelation." Magnanim
ity possesses more power over the con
quered than terror. One overcomes en
tirely and creates love, while the other
crushes only tor a time, ior tnosc who
have been humbled by power, despotic or
otherwise, remain only so long as that
power can keep them from rising. The
unjustly oppressed, when offered or se
cured relief, are the most violent of beings,
and blood too frequently marks the path
they choose, as they stride again into pow
er. Many entertain and may forever cher
ish feelings of bitter enmity against the
negroes of the South, while in my opinion
they should pity their ignorance, pardon
their judgments and enueavor to guiue
them aright. When we consider and con
demn their present acts ana taints we
ought also to think of their faithfulness
and peacetulness during tne war wnen at
a.iy time they could have risen and made
desolate thousands of homes, instead of
raising and producing provisions for our
support while we were fighting for our
freedom and their slavery. By proper
legislation and conducting of affairs it w ill
not require a very great length of time to
convince the negro that his rights are safe
in the hands of Southern men. 1 Iiousands
are already convinced that the Radical
party does not intend to aid them at the
sacrifice of its power, worth and prudence
will soon satisfy the balance. Ihe legis
lature should pass such acts as will be nec
essary to inforce due respect for the vested
rights of every citizen ot tne Mate ana
above all things it should compel the execu
tion of the law that makes it a penalty to
carry concealed weapons. By doing this
the spirit ot not will be completely crush
ed, for only armed cowards incite insurrec
tions and riots.
The action of our people and legislature
will be eagerly watched by the Rads of
the North and every imprudent act or word
will be made a mountain of and paraded
to make political capital of.
We have proved ourselves brave and
won the admiration ot maniund, now
let s be magnanimous and win the love and
gratitude of our children and generations

Six months previous to her death her little :
boy died, then her baby ; it was with great
struggling within her own breast that she
could give her darling little Jimmie up
she said he was such a good boy ; so like
every affectionate mother, to love the crea
ture more than their Creator.
