i pHE DEMOCRAT, M. I YATES, Editor and Proprietor. CHARLOTTE, N. C. Monday, February 21, 1876. Not Impolitic. 'Vlicn Congressman Blaine, a man of great abili- ! -i.l tbe acknowledged leader of the Republican 'VrtV in a carefully prepared speech charged the ' U itli'rn people with atrocities and crimes more reoiis tlian any recorded in history, his object ." to Pss U3 ai1c ours 'nto u'8tory as fiends. Mr p.'n Hill in speaking forus and our3 cut off Blaine's l in the very bloom of its youth and beauty, and t it off to with one master stroke. Now there ! !!. certain snilflcrs who go ambling around to de r irthein'-elves of 1he wise opinion that Hill was iipuiitic." If the Democratic party consents to "t any "rL' dirt as a rePiu's'te to i18 success as a n'ltioinl Piirt'' we 8av U ou?ht to le rotten-egged out of the country. Albemarle Times. We think that some of the leading men of the Democratic party in the South have been guilty of a great deal of imprudence, if not foolishness, since tlJt, ci,,se ef the war, and in that way prevented the Democratic or Conservative party from getting the ascendancy in State and National affairs, but we do not consider that Mr Hill of Georgia, or Mr JeflVrson Davis, has acted imprudently or im politic in exposing and denouncing the slanders uttered against Southern men by Mr Blaine or any ho ly else. While it is our duty to do all that h honorable and fair to restore peace and good feeling between the people of all sections of a com mon country, it is equally our duty to repel slander ami denounce the slanderers. We. never much admired the course of either IV n Hill or Jeff Davis before or during the war, b it we applaud and endorse Mr Hill's speech in Congress and Mr Davis' letter in reply to cold l,Ino led Blaine of Maine. When a public man tells li, s on the South plain language should be used in n-Plv. mftm Please Correct. The Raleigh Sentinel is mistaken in saying that Uic Charlotte Democrat "hoists the names of Vance and ('ox for Governor and Lieutenant ditto." We liitVL- hoisted no one's name to the head of our K litorial columns and never expect to do so again, b it we intend to support the Democratic nominees, as we have always done from the day -we were thirteen years old (that being the age at which we first began to help print a Democratic paper.) In the article to which the Sentinel alludes we merely intended our remarks as a suggestion or approval of what other cotcmporaries had said about Vance and Cox. We never did approve of hoisting names in advance of nominations. We ure a little particular about making pledges in ad vance, and if the Scutinel will copy this article it will explain our position to its readers, for which we will be obliged. CiiArEi. IIii.l. The Hon. A.M. Waddell will deliver the Annual Address Lefore the Literary Societies ut the next Commencement of the N. C. University in June, and Rev. T. II. Pritchard will preach the Annual Sermon. i I'ai'KU Mills. We are gratified to learn that the Paper Mills in Lincoln and Cleaveland counties have been put in operation again, the Messrs. Tiddy of this city running them for tbe present as Agents. Smoke IIotjse Buknt. A friend informs us that the Smoke House of Mr R. C. Beard, near llunters.ville, this county, wa3 burnt on the 17th i nst. , together with its contents, consisting of bacon, Hour, wheat, meal, &c. loss about $250. The fire was accidental. The Fence Law. We are informed that an election was held in Iliver Bend Township, Gaston county, on Thursday last, 17th inst., on the ques tion of adopting the Fence Law. The vote stood :51 for the law to 185 against it. C?" The relatives and friends in Lincoln, Gaston and .Mecklenburg of Rev. E. W. Thompson, the pastor of the Methodist Church at Fayetteville, will he pleased to learn that his health has much improved, although he is still unable to preach. iii Rkkused Judge Schenck last week refused the petition of creditors to appoint a Receiver for the Estates of Thos. R. Tate and Thos. W. Dewey. Ni:w Paim-:r. Mr W. F. Avery (formerly con nected with the Charlotte Observer) has commenced the publication of a Democratic paper at Morgan ton. N. c, called the "Blue Ridge Blade." It is indeed, a credit to the Editorial fraternity to have such honorable men as Mr Avery connected with it a man who will never do a mean thing or de sert principle for popularity or money. lie is a Democrat who can be relied on under all circum stances, because he known how to be a Democrat. We hope he may meet with abundant success. 11T good man and an influential one in bis sphere in this State, n-rotc us a letter last week speaking words of pi of the Democrat and the reading matter it weekly contains. It is said that women and children love praise, and we never yet saw a man that hated it. We are free to say that we felt gratified on reading our friend's letter, and it &Uo gratifies us to be able to say to him and to many others who have patronized the Democrat for the past twenty-three years that we have as large a patronage now as at any time in our life. Those who know us know that these words are not used in a boastful manner or spirit. We have never said that we had a larger circulation than ai- other paper fn the State (for we care nothing about that) hut we do say that we arc entirely satisfied with the patronage we have received and are now re ceiving, and heartily hopifjthat every other news paper in the Slate is doing as well as the Democrat. Hut we are getting rather tired printing a news paper, and often think of quitting, but have not vet found a chance to quit. We are not ambitious to die with that sort of harness on. LIT Mr Geo. W. Norman, traveling Agent for the Au-usta Chronicle and Sentinel, is in the City m helulf of the interests of that paper. The Chron icle and Sentinel rf a good newspaper. New Advertisements.

Last week Mr Hale of Maine, introduced a reso. lution in the House of Representatives favoring the resumption of specie payments or n contraction of the currency, and we are pleased to see that it failed to pass. The following is the resolution : Whereas, the currencv now tn ns imnnr people of the United States consists of the National Bank notes and the greenbacks, the latter being a debt of the Government widely distributed among the people, and the former being redeemable in the greenback and subject to like fluctuation with it and whereas, the Lnited States Treasury has thus far failed to meet its obligations and to redeem its noies, mcreoy depreciating the valueof the people's money and keeninc it at a lar?e discount whih depreciation varies from day to day, causing risk and uncertainty in business affairs, to the crpat Tiro. judice of all legitimate industry and enterprise ; and v uereas, v,ongrei-s by its enactments, and both the political parties by resolutions adopted in their several National Conventions stand committed to the early resumption of specie payments ; Therefore Be it resolved by the House of Representatives in Congress assembled, That prompt measures should be taken by such legislation as is needed to render effective the policy to a resumption of specie pay ments, by placing in the hands of the Secretary of the Treasury all necessary powers to carry out said objects, to the end that a sound and stable currency may be provided for the people. The yeas and nays on the above stood for the resolution 85, against it 139 not voting 65. So the resolution was rejected. All the North Carolina members voted against it. Hon. A. W. Venable. Every North Carolinian who ha3 been or is now engaged in politics, or took an interest in public affairs, knows Abraham W. Venable either person ally or by reputation. He is a man and a Democrat in whom no guile was ever found, lie is now quite an old man and very feeble, living in Granville county. A letter from Oxford to the Raleigh News, dated Feb. 14th, says : "The Hon. A. W. Venable on whose brow the fingers of time for sometime past have made a visi ble impress was taken much worse to-day. As he verges more and more on the brink of the grave the brightness of his christian hope and trust shines with increased effulgence. He is conscious that his days on earth are well nigh terminated, and with confident faith in the merits of his Redeemer he expresses a perfect resignation to bid adieu to the things of time and sense whenever it pleases the Good-Master to call him home. While Mr Venable has ever been a zealous Presbyterian his views to wards other denominations have been characterized by liberality and brotherly affection." Mr Venable i3 the father of Mrs. Martin, the wife of Rev. S. T. Martin, Principal of Charlotte Female Institute. The N. C. Members of Congress. The Editor of the Wilmington Journal, in a let ter to bis paper, makes the following remarks about the members of Congress from this State : "It is indeed gratifying to find in what very high estimation our representatives in Congress are held. In both Houses the North Carolinians occupy con spicuous positions, and there is not a more influen tial or more able delegation in the Capitol. Indeed, very recently the press elsewhere have waked up to the merits of some of them and are rendering a tardy justice. No one can visit the Senate chamber without a favorable impression of our Senators. The senior Senator, General Ransom, has taken rank with the foremost men of that body, while his bearing, ur banity and individual magnetism have attached men to him of every shade of opinion and from all sections of the country, and I doubt if any other Senator has the same personal influence. In con versation with men of the most antagonistic views and the most widely differing prejudices, I find all have a kindly and a complimentary word for Sena tor Ransom. "North Carolina should be proud of him," said a distinguished New England Senator to me a day or two since "and the whole country regards him with affection." He is constant in his attention to his duties, and every interest of his State is watched with a jealous eye and attended to with an untiring industry. Our State could possi bly have no better representative in the highest parliamentary body of the country. While he is acknowledged to be one of the best orators of the body, he does not often claim the attention of the Senate. He prefers to exercise his influence other wise, and th'j very great success which has attended his efforts plows that he has not, at least, sacrificed any interest of the State, however much he may have left undone to add to his individual reputa tion. He is sure to be heard from whenever he believes his words will benefit his people and his country. Senator Merrimon is recognized as one of the ablest lawyers, and most attentive and industrious members of the Senate. Always present, fre quently engaging in the discussions, he is doing good service for North Carolina. He commands the respect of his fellow-Senators, and he is always listened to with marked attention. During the recent discussion upon the admisssion of Pinch back, he put a few questions to Morton that neu tralized the poison which that vindictive fiend was attempting to instil into the hearts of Republicans of the Senate. This has brought upon Senator Merrimon the bitter attacks of the administration organ here, which will be accepted by North Caro linians as conclusive evidence that he is doing good and valuable service. His position in the Senate or at home cannot be compromised by attacks from such a quarter. An Old Man. We are informed that James Hicks died in Lincoln county on the 9th inst., at the age of one hundred and six years. He was born in Virginia early in the year 1770, and moved to North Carolina in 1789. Our correspondent says that "he raised a large family and was a laboring man all his life." He certainly was a "laboring man" if he raised a "large family ;" but it is to be hoped that he now ha3 rest. How few men or wo men live to be as old as James Hicks ! Be Careful. The Spring Courts are now com ing on and many scoundrels will soon be sentenced to the Penitentiary or to the gallows, and honest people should be careful how they sign petitions for pardons. The case of the bad negro, Randolph Sutton, should be a warning to petition-signers. North Carolina. While a few persons are moving from this State to Texas and the West, many Notthern men (farmers and mechanics of the right sort) are moving into it. If an industrious man cannot live in North Carolina we don't under stand how he can live elsewhere. Many who moved away several years ag are now coming back, and many others will come as soon as they get money enough to pay traveling expenses. tiT" The notorious Victoria Woodhull advertised to Lecture in Macon, Ga., and the Messenger says that not a seat was sold during the day. Creditable to the people of Macon. CsT A large number of the Merchants of Raleigh have been indicted by the Solicitor of that District for not listing, on the 1st of January, the amount of receipts and sales during the preceding six months. The merchants held a public meeting last week and protested against such action on the part of the Solicitor, claiming that if the list was ren dered after the 1st January the spirit of the law was complied with. Liheral Commodore Vauderbilt of New York, has made another donation to the Methodist Uni versity atNashville, Tenn , this time giving $300,000 making in all donated by him to that Institution $L,000,000. That is liberal for a man who began life as the Captain and owner of a fish boat. Climate of Charlotte. Dr. Lawrence in Lis Medical Magazine for February, in auswer to a question of another Physician as to the best locality for a Con sumptive patient, says : "In auswer to the question of climate, I can only say that no one climate is best for all persons. Even some healthy persons suffer intensely in a cold climate, and feel better and are much stronger in a warm climate; while others get bilious and rnn down in a warm climate, who feel better, get stronger and are braced up in a cold climate. Each person must judge for them selves, if they are obliged to take either ex treme. A medium climate would probably come nearer suiting all persons, as it is well known that in warm climates the deadliest seasons are those of great heat ; in cold cli mates the deadliest are those of great cold. As a good medium cilmate, therefore, I should think thai Charlotte, North Caro lina, would best suit the majority of con sumptive invalids. Asheville, N. C, and Aiken, S. C, are also good points." The above remicds us of what an eminent Physician said to us 15 years ago, viz: that Charlotte was the best place lie knew of for persons threatened with consumption or afflicted with it. The School Fund. From the Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners we obtained the following Table showing the distribution oi the School Fund raised by taxation in the County of Mecklenburg, among the several Townships of the county according to the number of children: White.

Stephens of Georgia, and therefore copy an article from a Georgia paper giving an account of a visit of a Minister to his sick bedside at Crawfordsville. Read it. m - Terrible. A member of Congress has intro duced a Bill to protect agriculturalists against inju rious insects. We don't know how it is to be done, but the member made statements showing that the destruction by insects in some of the Western States is terrible. He said that the loss from the ravages of the locust, chintz bug, army and cotton worm, and Hessian fly, exceed two hundred million dol lars, and from the locust alone the amount exceeds fifty million dollars. In seven counties of Minne sota nearly 4,000 bushels of locusts were destroyed at a cost of $80,000. IBHI 2F In the Senate last week, on motion of Mr Merrimon, the vote by which the bill to pay for carrying mails in the South before the war, was indefinitely postponed, was reconsidered, and the bill placed on the calendar. The bill provides for paying Southern contractors the money due them when the war broke out, and should be passed as a measure of common honesty. . - Another. It is reported that the Pio neer Fire Insurance Company of Philadel phia has gone into bankruptcy. m Texas. Returns indicate 50,000 Demo cratic majority in the Texas State election. - tfig Fish Stories. Maj. Henry Gilliam of Chowan county (we believe) informs the Raleigh Sentinel that William T. Sutton, at one haul, caught 10,000 rock-fish, weighing from 8 to 115 pounds apiece, averaging 45 pounds each ; 10,000 herring and 4,000 shad eels, catfish, perch and suckers were not counted. Mr Cowper, Dr. Martin and Col. Carter were ready to bull up the Major if his word had been" doubted. Col. Carter said, at Dr. Wni. R. Capart's he saw 100,000 pounds of rock-fish caught at a haul. Fish were never more abundant in our eastern waters. 1 1 1 communicated. Mecklenburg Bible Society. The Executive Committee of the Meck lenburg Bible Society met at the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Chapel in Charlotte S. W. Reid, Esq., Chairman, and Rev. V. M. Hunter, Secretary and discussed the two questions of how to circulate the Bible and how to obtain the means with which to do so. The following are the sub- depositories in the county : R. B. Hunter, at Iluntersville; ElamP. Cochran, Query's; Nat Monteith, Monteith's Mill; Cyrus Wolfe, Sardis ; R. D. Collins, Steel Creek ; S. W. Reid, lower Steel Creek. The Committee request that pastors, stated supplies, teachers, and others in the county, circulate the existence of these places of Bible distributions. The desire was earnestly manifested for a greater nam ber of depositories in the county, but means were not m the Treasurer s hands to justify the establishment of others. It is earnestly hoped that the churches will remember the needs of the Society, and each send in a mite by the 1st of April. The meeting adjourned, as it had opened, with prayer, to meet at the same place on the 1st Monday in March, at 11 o'clock A. M. Sale Postponed. By consent of parties the Sale of the R. F. Davidson Property, advertised to be sold on Friday next, the 25th of February, is postponed to the 28th of February, being the first -Monday of Court. GEO. E. WILSON. R.

' FrRE -On Friday night last, about 10 o'clock, the Tobacco Factory of Mr J. Heineman, located at the South end of Trade street, was consumed by fire. The loss of 3Ir Heineman in machinery, to bacco, &c., is estimated at about .OOOwith an in surance of $5,000 or $6,000. The buildings be longed to Schiff & Bro.,' valued at $2,600 insured for $2,000. 3Ir SchuT also owned part of the ma chinery on which there was no insurance, nc esti mates his total loss at about $2,500. t3? A colored barber in this city called Henry Cook, on Thursday last shot a young white man named Wiley Suggs, the ball striking him in the left breast but glanced around under the skin without in flicting a fatal wound. . The difficulty occurred in a bar-room kept in the suburbs of Five Points by a colored man. Cook was committed to Jail in de fault of $1,000 bail. tT The Glass Front which has been put in the Clothing Store f J. A. Young & Son, next to 1st National Bank, has improved its appearance very much, and the improvement improves the looks of that side of the street. New Hotel. The "Alexander House" is the name given to the new boarding house just opened by 31rs. A. W. Alexander near Tryon Street Method ist Church. The building (or at least the walls of it) was formerly the old Jail, but it has been so transformed inside that it makes an elegaut three- story residence. Dr. A. W. Alexander, Dentist, has his Office in the building. tSm The alterations and improvements on the Court Room are first rate, and make our Court House as good as any in the State. There never was any necessity for a new Court House. True. A gentleman who paid for the. Demo crat last week said that any newspaper was cheap enough at $2 and postage paid. Two Dollars is all we charge for the Democrat one year, and we pay the postage. CHARLOTTE MARKET, Feb. 21. 1876.

Sustained by this precious hope, after having served bis generation, he came to his grave in a full age, like a shock of corn cometh in its season. W. W. if. SALE OP LAND.
