"TARBORO',, NORTH CAROLINA, WllililAM BIGGS, Editor. 0Y. 28, 186. VALEDICTORY. To-day tho Southerner enters po n its Forty-fottrtk year, and with this number, mj conuecties with. The Tar boro' Southerner -ceases. One year ago, I assumed editorial toutrol of the Southerner, for the pur pose of reviving a paper, which from old associations, mast ever be dear to the people of Edgecombe county. The object I had in coming is attained. The Southerner now ranis in size, etyle and the" characttr of its matter, with the firet Journals , of the State, and I beg leavo to return to my first love. My time and attenlien is required cm the North Carolinian, & jraptir I es taVHsbed two years ago, and in the con ' duct of which I have ever since been engaged. The work of reviving the organ of my -native county has been a labor of love, fnd for those who have so hcarti- Jy co operated with,' aided and encour aged me, I shall ever retain the liveli est emotions of friendship and regard. In severing my connection with the Southerner ,1 can bat look buck cu the past year, as one of tho most pleasant of my life, and the brief r-j-union v? ith those who knew me in youth, cousti- tutcs one of tho happiest events in an i eventful career. People of EdgPcoTnb?, I leavo yonr paper in the hanJa of one, tv.'io will sustain and uuhold its princij-lcs. It remains for you io sustain him. My medium of conniiunicatioa with you, will hereafter, bo that of the North CvidHinian. If at any thro I may serve you, you know who I am, and where to find me. WM. A. IIEARNE.

On the occasion of the release on hail of Es-Prcsident Davis at Rich mond in Juno last, the reader will re member that a gentleman from the North approached tho 2rt Jlississip pian in the Court room, and congratu lating him on his release from prison, raid " I an a Northern man of South ern principles." In that peculiar tone of voice that inspired his own Jdlssis sippians at Buena Vista, and which af terwards held Senators Fpclloouud. j Jeefehson Davis replied, I am a i Southern ma v. or S-jutiiern phin i t CIl'LES. In entering upon the forty-fourth year of its existence, the Southerner re-echoes the immortal sentiment, with a determination never to lose sight of or swerve from those principles which were made imperishable and undying by the conduct of the proud but fallen chief of the short lived but glorious Southern Confederacy. Trie! ef ex President Bails. The trial of the great Mi:isissippian is again postponed, this time until March, 1868. We should think it was time that this legal mockery had ceased. Mr. Davis is represented as being in excellent health and spirits. He will remain in the South during the winter. The whereabouts of his headquarters have not transpired. TR Land Leve.

Here alone have the blacks shown the least disposition to place any con fidence in a respectable, honest white man ; and here alone has any white man been elected by their votes in whom both races have felt willing to entrust their respective interests. With & large majority in the county, and unlimited power to elect three of their own color, they havo waiv ed that authority, and, bj their votes last week, sent to the Convention, two centlemcn. who with the exception 'e A. it? nf Moo-rn StifTrnn-A-in thi in 1. 1 1 r . imuuu J a -1 v v w - i. i- w tapcw t,A . , , ' . r : checrtul support ana enaorsement 01 tU flonntv at anv time. r No withstanding the pledge required ; i w.. fl..i - J !

It is tbe only afld last hope of preserving even the faintest vestiges of those privileges and immunities hither to vouchsafed by God to the white race alone.
