DEC. 18. 1874
The time is approaching when
necessity forces us to revise our
mailing books, and tve make this
last call on all indebted to us to pay
up. We cannot sustain the credit
business longer. On the first of
next January, we will have to pay
postage in advance on all papers we
send out. We must be on the cash
basis by that time or nearly so. We
shall exceedingly regret to have to
part with any of our readers, but
necessity compels us, unless they
come forward between note and Hew
Year and pay up. Our expenses
arc very heavy, and the price of
subscription so loio that no one ought
to ask credit. So forward your
money without further delay.
THE LEGISLATURE JUST AS WE
The following remarks of our
able cotemporarj, the Wilmington
Journal, accord so well with out
own views that we adopt the entire
article as an expression of the sen
timents of the Enquirer-South
We called attention some weeks
before the Legislature met to the
fact that not more than a tithe o!
the Democrats who have been in our
Legislatures since 1870 were re
elected in August last. In view ol
the habit of our North-, -.tCarolina
constituenciee not to change tilth
public servants without what teemed
to them good and sufficient causes,
the presence ot so many new mem
bers in the Legislature now in ses
sion is a truly remarkable fact, th
Only sensible explanation of wliici
vrus, we said then as we say now, t.
be found in the inability of anv
legislative body cramped and crip
pled as .he Legislatures of Noitl
Carolina are by the Canity Consti
tution, to meet the expectations id
- av yirxrjms in tuc uianci VI I CI II 1
from the burdens under which tbe
labor. We said then too, as w
say now, that if the present Legis
lature failed to call a Conventi n,
its members also would speedly hi
iu their political graves.
And already is our prophecy be
ginning its fulfilment. Already w.
begin to hear complaints from th
people and from the press that the
Legislature is doing notl iug, thai
although it has been in session fur
a month, it has done absolutely
nothing for the relief of the people,
that i: has failed to meet the ex
pectations of the people, in a word
that it has done nothing but draw
per diem. This is just w hat we ex
pected, and is only the beginning
of the end, and that end is political
death. We do not endorse th.es
crniciams and these complain1 s fui
the reason that we believe this and
all other bodie attempting to legis
late under the Canby Constitute
can do no good fir North Caro ini
The fault iu the Legislature lies ii
its failure to call a Convention a
once, whereby its powers may b
enlarged so that its members cm
meet the jist expectations of the.r
The Journal h is faithfully en

the people an 1 it will continue so i

is therefoie with pecu'iar pleasure
that they witness a partial cOang-'
t iking place in their political views
iu certain por'ions of our country
and they regard it as a harbinger of
an era of good feeling and prosper
iry that will benefit all alike the
people of. our fouthern land. The
colored people have been long
blinded to their true interest by a
set of miserable and designing men,
who have deluded them with all
kind9 of promises, known to be
f ilse, and have prejudiced them
ajrainst the better class of white
people by slanders of the most at
n i .1
roeioua ctiaracjer. A he recent eiec
tiona in South Carolina, however,
and the conduct of many of the ne
groes in the late" Lousiana troubles
how plainly that the eablu voter
will not always be led about by the
nose. 'A few days ago notice was
made in the dispatches of the Asso
ciated Press of the resolutions.
adopted by an organization of col
ored men in Memphis. This order
is called the Knights' Brotherhood
and Monumental Association, and
is composed of the Presidents of the
various negro societies in the city.
We print with pleasure the follow
ing extract from these resolutions,
which seem to be a sort of address
to the sensible colored suffrug-uis
jf the country.

As long as the. negro .j.ot&JA thai

there is no reason to expect any
amelioration of the condition of
politics in that section. While this
vast mass of voting material remains
in the compact st'te which ever1
since the war has made it the ob
jective point of every adventurer in
search of oince, there is no reason
to hope for that intelligent discus-,
sion and watchful criticism which
are the only salvation of political
life iu democratic governments.
The vote- has hitherto been too
manageable. It has been a sort ol
patent right in the hands of the
carpet baggers, and ha been work
ed without infringement and .with
results which are too well known.
It is against public interests that
this tn mopoly should continue. H
the aims and processes or the Re
publican leaders in the South were
far belter than they ar, it would
.-till be a ba"l thing for the Southern
