have animadverted freely on his politics.
On the other hand the Bads have made us
the subject of tirades of abuse. We op
pose Mr. Cobb's getting the position of
Sheriff, because we oppose hts politics, and
no one who opposes Radicalism can con

Self Besfect. People of Edgecombe,
your self-respect demands that you do all
you can to prevent men who have endorsed
the Civil Itights, who have canvassed the
county and dealt in the vilest abuse against
you, who have advised the laborers of the
county not to work except for the most
ruinous wages, who have put forward low
negroes to villify decent white people,
from holding offices of honor and trust in
your county. You can do it if you will
not sign the bonds of Cobb, MeCabe or
Shooting Affaik. Two negroes, Jeff
Parker and Ed. Boberson, were boxing
near Boeky Mount on Wednesday, when
Boberson aecidently struck a white man by
the name of Williams, who was standing
near, in the face, which so incensed him
that, notwithstanding Bobcrsou's apologies,
he drew his pistol and fired on him three
times. The first two shots missed, but the
third entered Boberson's jaw and came out
at his mouth, Parker wa.- holding Wil
liams and was shot, it is thought accident
ally, in tiie foot. No serious damage is
done. Williams is said to have been drunk.
Official Negligence. Something is
certainly wrong when the greatest crimes,
murders, can be committed in as dense
ly populated country as this is and yet the
perpetrators not so much as arrested or
brought to trial. Three murders have
been committed in our county within the
last three or four years, one at Kingsboro,
that of Frank Battle, colored, and the one
recently at the Foxhall farm, and not one
of the guilty persons concerned in the
affairs has been arrested. Shall this state
ot altairs continue it so, what may we
look Tf'r as the future condition of our
The Market IIoise. Our attention has
been called to certain irregularities about
the Market house that demand the atten
tion of the police. It is said that it lias
become such a place for loitering idlers,
and such low and indecent conversations
arc so often carried on about il, that it is
extremelv disagreeable for a gentleman to
attend it, much less a lady. The town
authorities should see that one of the po
lice is at the market house every day until
eleven o'clock that he may see that every
thing is properly conducted.
Will Give It. A gentleman informs
us that Mr. Cobb savs, "the Southerner
and eight or ten influential men about Tar
boro are doing all they can to prevent my
giving my bond, but I will give it in spite of
them, and will show no favor or affection
If Mr. Cobb means this as a threat, we hope
our people will not be influenced by it, for
the law pi escribes the duties of a Sheriff,
aud if he goes bevond them his bond mav
be held responsible.
Canal. A considerable amount ot in
terest was manifested at atrial at the Court
I louse on Wednesday growing out of a
disagreement among some parties interested

Untortcsate Accident. There came

accident near Bocky Mount on Wednesday.
Mr. T. II. Griffin was out turkey-hunting,

ay and Mathews, who were also
hunting, happened to pass near by. Hear
ing the yelping and just catching a glimpse
of the hunting bag worn by Mr. Griffin,
Mr. Gay thought it was a turkey aud fired,
emptying his entire load in the right side of
Mr. Gritlin. As soon as the mistake was
ascertained immediate steps were taken for
relief, and we are glad to state it is thought
no permanent injury is done.

I he excitement of the election has pass
1 awav and both sides have settled down
vcrv quietly. At least it seems so now,
but our good people were a little exercised
few days ago by reason of the news from
Mississippi. There was immediately a
connection made between that 4 rumor of

suspicious. For example : the negroes had
lieen holding secret meetings from which
even their own women were excluded, and
lorn and Dick and Harry all had heard
something very portentous of a storm a
general uprising of the blacks to wipe us
poor pale faces clean out. I have no doubt
but some of them would like to do it, and
there are white radical fools enough to set
them on. But the ' time is not yet.'

To itemise, however : On the night of the
20th inst., at the house of Mr. Asa Watson
(who resides at Pantego, a small village,
about 20 miles from here) a most horrible
outrage was committed on the persoii of a
young lady. From the best information
that I can as yet obtain, the matter was
about as follows : Ou the night mentioned
a negro (Aaron Bonner) broke into Mr.
W atsou s nouse about 9 o clock and seized
the young lady and proceeded to accom
plish his design. 31r. W. was from home
at the time and Mrs. W. escaped. The
girl screamed for help, and some neighbors
went to ascertain the cause of the alarm,
and then went to a Magistrate and secured
a warrant, arrested the scoundrel, and by
dark ou the 21st inst., had lodged lnm in
J. Satchwell s free hotel.
We have again been called upon to bear

A Big Day in Lewis'
Speaking Barbecue &
Colored Democrats Participa
ting ! !
Yesterday was a big day in Lew is' town
ship. This township, with a negro majority
of 40 cast a democratic majority of about
20 votes, enjoying the pleasant mono
ply of being the only township in the coun
ty that gave its vote for Pool. It was
therefore especially oppropriate that the
celebration of the victory of its candidate
should be made upon its soil. A cannon
was brought from a distance and the night
before the celebration announced to the
community that grand preparations were
At an early hour yesterday the crowd
began to assemble, and by eleven o'clock
a multitude representing various portions
of the county had gotten together. The
artillery, under the charge of George Wil
liams, Esq., a veteran Confederate artil
lerist, announced that all was ready and
the crowd gathered near the stand where
Capt Jno S Dancy introduced to the audi
ence E It Stamps, Esq., who led off in a
speech of bout half an hour. Capt Fred
Phillips was then vociferously called for
and entertained the audience with a stirring
detail of the wrongs we had suffered and
the urgent need of a reform in our organic
law. He congratulated the people ujxm
their victory and urged them to press on
ward in their efforts for good government.
II L Staton was then called for and re
sponded iu a neat and appropriate address.
The assemblage was then invited within
an enclosure, where tables loaded with a
regular old North Carolina delicacy, good
barbecued pig and corn bread, added sub
stantial nourishment to the feast of reason.
After the dinner the Loom of the cannon
again called to attention, and Col Bonnie
took the stand and delighted his audience i
with one of his happiest efforts of nearly
an hour in duration. Col B., was was
followed by Mr O M Weison in a few well
Harry Dancy, the fire-tried old colored
democrat, was then called for and deliver
ed a speech replete with wholesome coun
sel to his people. Old Noah Worst-ley was
also on the field and enjoyed the occasion
The weather was pleasant, and Messrs
Sharpe, Walston, Fenton and others had
the pleasure of seeing there friends rejoice
upon a field upou which they had done
such good work.
The following views are from one of our
oldest and liest citizens, and are entitled to
our careful consideration.
Mr. Editor : The white or negro race
in North Carolina, one or the other, must
rule the State. The whites have borne
patiently and been plundered by black
hearted white thieves and ignorant negroes
for about nine years. Instead of a better
feeling having been cultivated, the Badical
leaders have made it worse and nearly
forced upon us a war of races. Which
race shall rule aud govern ? This is the
question we have to solve. Our fathers
made this a white man's government, and
it is our inhearitauce, bequeathed to us by
them, and we, the sons of noble sires, in
tend to govern it as set forth by the United
States constitution, which held negroes as
human beings to be represented in Congress
and as property to be taxed in the States.
Now that they are free, we should protect
them as citizens by our laws, in life, liber
ty and property, equally with the white
race, but they should not be allowed to
hold office, state or iederal, to make laws
to ffovern us.
Now that North Carolina is redeemed
from Badical plunderers and thieves, let us
deal fairly and kindly towards the colored
people. Their children should be educated
as soon as our broken down nuances will
admit of it. Would not the Legislature at
its next session do well to provide and set
apart all the poll tax and property tax col
lected from the black race, together with
all the fines, .Vc, collected from them, as
a school fund to educate their children, and
not tax the State at all ?
The Legislature ought to amend the con
stitution of the State and return to first
principles, so as to have checks ami bal
auccs in the administration of government.
Bv the Badical constitution there is no
check. The same voters elect Governor,
Senators, Representatives, &c: Why not
just elect a Governor aud Council only, aud
rid tbe State ot tlie expense or a legisia
ture ? We say, let us have a Governor to
execute the laws, a Senate to guard the
interest of the property and land holders,
