We direct attention to the follow ing letter in the Nsw York Tribune from Zebuloa li. Yanoe, in reply to the slanders of Judge Tourgee who has been makiug speeches in the North, retailing certain base and niil ignaat charges made agaiust Gov. Vance for the vilest political pur, poses. The Trihune comments editorialy on Gov. Vanoe'a letter, and takes os- CON-;'tai(m to administcr Bome heevy blows to tne LarpeUbag Judge who has shown himself so unworthy of the es. alted positir: q disgraces. From the New York Tribune. Ex-Gov. Vance's Record -Tour-gee's Slanders Denied A Salis bury Prison Story Refuted. To the Editor of the Tribune: Slit: I am induoed by the attempts of the Grant men to injure Mr. Gree ley through me to notice certain charges made by one A. W. Tourgee, a carpet bag Judge of the North Car olina Superior Court, against tne in a speech recently made somewhere in the State of New York. As I remember it (for I have not the paper before mc) this man charges that, while Governor of North Carolina I became a conscript-hunter, arrested women nod little childr3n, and kept them eoofin d in pens, had their thumbs mashed under fences, &c, &c. So far as I am concerned I de nounce these charges as infamously and maliciously false. Such tlilDgs were neither done by mc, nor by auy other person under my order, or with my knowledge, consent oi' procure ment. Tho American people know, tRat although I went into the late war re luotaotly, I, neverthe.Iefrg, fought it through, both in military and civil position, with all my might and abil ity. For this I have not apologized, nor been called on to apologize. But I claim that, in all the bitterness and u.-rce pns-iona of that unfortunate struggle, I was governed by princi ples of justice and manhood. And if any man can show that I was guilty, knowingly and wilfully, of any single aot of cruelty or inhumanity to friend or foe, I will agree to be held up to the detestation of mankind, :i3 no bet ter thau the meanest ('arret bagger that ever fattened on the miseries of an unfortunate reople. The pur pose of such plunders deliberately ut pterrerl upon the Southern supporters or ilr. ureeiey is sulaciently apparent The wonder at their iniquity is lost in the grandeur of their Impudence. This Radical party, whieh makes no scruple of receiving to its bosom the veriest of red-handed rebels, and of coddling upon its knees the wildest monsters of treason, expects to impose upon tho Uuion sentiment of the North by showing what bad company Mr. Greeley is in. They reoievo with songs of rejoicing the returning prod igal who by entering the Radical oatnp, shows that he desires so add plunder to Lis rebellion and treason, and ex claim virtuously against those who still stand out for Greeley and peace to a distracted land. Let thera first spurn the association with Southern fire eaters, and then they may exclaim agaiDet Mr. Greeley's rebel friend with checks that need not burn with shame. Will any of tho papers which pub lished the Flon. Judge Toureee's slan ders upon me now insert this refuta tation of tbem? I can hardly hope so. When I was elected to the U. S. Senate in 1870, the organ of tho Ads ministration in Washington perpetra ted a foul calumny upon me by assert in"; that I was in a degree responsi ble for cruelties to Federal prisoners at Salisbury. I went to tho War De partment, where my official letter books were (and are still, I presume), and asked pet mission to copy some letters from myself to the Confeder ate States' Secretary of War on this subject. I was told I could look at the letters, but I could not copy them without the permission of Congress ! I did look at them, under charge of a clerk, and there they were, and are ; containing not only a full and triumph act refutation of the charges, but showing that I bad exerted myself to obtain an alleviation of their (the prisoner's) condition. But justice and truth were not expedient then. I fear it will be yet many years before tbo public are fully alive to the weakness and wickedness of basing the publio policy upon the passion- and falsehoods begotten cf tho womb of civil war. May Go i hasten the day. 2 1$. Vance. Charlotte, N. C, Aug. 27, 1872. According to the statistics of the Census OSee there are in the United States sixty-three thousand church edifices, affording accommodation for twenty-one millions and a half of wor shippers, leaving eighteen millions for whom there is no place in any church. Considering that this country professes to be civilized and religious, the fact that Dearly one half of its population can not attend diviue ser vice in any consecrated edifice is a startling one. The largest denomina tion of Christians is the Methodist, with more than six millions and a half of attendants upon their churches Tho Bapt sts have three millions, ihe Presbyterians two millions aud a half, the lioman Catholios something le&s than two millions, the Congregation alitscn million one hundred thouaod and the Episcopalians somethni less than a million. "Wh it Ought to be Done There are no doubt Liberals and Democrats enough in tho Uoited States to elect Mr. Greeley President iu November. Whether they will do it or cot is another question, the an swer to which depends almost as much upon the the mariner in which tbey cooduot the campaign as upon their numerical strength. It is cer tain that the Liberals aud Conserva tives for instance have a large major ity in North Carolina, but their oppo nents there were admirably organized and brought their whole strength to bear so effectively that if they could not secure a genuine victory they at least saved themselves from rout. Elsewhere tho preparation of the Ad ministration party have been equally thorough, aud they have the great advantage of controlling all the pat ronage aud other influence of the Gov eminent. On our side too much trust has been placed upon the "popular uprising and "enthusiasm ' ior Gree ley, and the "generous impulse" for peace and fraternity, and "revolt:" against Kings and corruption; and our friends seem to imagine that they can sit still and let the Liberal moves ment sweep the country. They must uudtrstaad that the Administration is nt going to bo changed by an earth quake. They must work for success. It is in politics as it is in war; the baU tie is not always to the biggest army, but rather to the best drilled. Our campaign is to be short and sharp, and we are likely to bo beaten unless no do more than wo are doing uow to get our men into the field and secure recruit? from among the waveriug and dissatisfied. We siy, then, to the friends of the Liberal cause: 1. Don't iiHi&te all yonx strength on tirades. Binnerd, bo.,fircs, cannon, and torch light processions are very good iu their waj, but they don'j make voters. They ouly aaiuse the men who would vote for your candidate anyhow. 2. Duu't rely loo 7iuch upon jiublic meetings. They aro oae-s;ded affairs, which neither develop your own strsugth uor influence the followers tf the opposite party, 3. Don't rely to-j much unoii cir culars. Very lew voters rend them. They are usd fur kiudiiu aud shaving nuper. Besides, the Grunt party hub abused the system to such au extent that a man distrusts whatever comes to him iu that shape. 4- Don't tcuate your money on Ca;n puiyn Chowder Clubs, and other frauds This is a great season for impecunious political suckers. Be as ctvil as you pli-as-', but show them the door. Organize the party thoroughly hy districts., iu every city, village, and township of the Uu.ied Slates. If there is no local organization where you live, get together a few of your neighbors aud form ouc. b As soon as a Club is funned ap point active canvassers to vtut every nouse. lhus every man who believes ia the principles of our party can be enrolled, aud the wants of every dis trict can be ascertained. 7. Have dUtrct meetings at regular times, so that the spirit and interest of the members m;iy bo sustaiueJ by association- Never mind gatherings for buncombe, but meet oftacr for busi ness. Put your clubs into communi cation with the county or State asso ciations, and report to headquarters your needs, your progress, and your strength. 8. Do these things at once. Begin your local clu'.s to day. The opposite purty are active aui well disciplined. auu we are uor. ve nave a great deal of lost time to make up, and oaly a little while to do it iu. With eners getic aud Well directed effort our victo ry iu November is certain; but the prize will be snatched from our hands if we do not rouse ourselves iu season. The Greeley Cause Gaining Ground,. Wo have onoe or twice recently heard some such expression as this : 'Tlie Greeley movement is not gaining.' This is a great mistake. The niove ment gains solid momentum every day at the North, and as it had nearly all to start with it could reasonably expect at the South, it is wrong to ba-e our opinion as to its progress ou the South ern States. The white people here as a general thing support Greeley most of tho intelligence, respectability and worth of the people have long ago de cided to take "anything to beat Grant." And they take Greeley aud Brown right well,oven under the circumstances The cause of liberalism perceptibly grows stronger every day at the North. Accessions of prominent men are fre quent. Indeed, we believe that near ly all tho ablest Republican leaders, tbo old original pauel have deolared for the man who leads the reform ool um. Let us sec. There are in Massa chusetts, Sumner, Banks. Bird and Dowles all men of the first promi nence; in New York, Fenton, Coch race and others whom wo do not just now recall ; ia Pennsylvania McClure let'ds a host of small politicians ; in Illinois, we have Tiumball, Davis, Pal mer and Koerner a brilliant- quar tette of statesmen, besides Horace White sn l other prominent journal ists; in Missouri, wo can mention the distinguished Senator Sehui z and W. M. Grosvenor; in Michigan Austin Blair is a tower of stengih; and we might coutinue the list, iu nearly all the States, making up a beautiful Greeley and Brown boquet. TLe movement uos not stand htill. It is progretsive. It is bound to go for ward. It does advancd. It will con-! ticua to make rapid strides until (lie! laurels of a brilliant victory crowu the , Ciucir.natus of the cause on the ides j yf November. Wii. Star. i Iff T 4? la NUMBER 40. HYMENIAL. 1 Chat About Bridesmaids. To an ordinary observer, a stranger at the feast, the eight of bridesmaids at a wedding is absolutely painful t en. v:. :.t. i i i -1 av una uiiu wiiu a similar meiancnoiy satisfaction to that experienced by a sportsman, when be sees a covey of partridges in ripe distance for a shot, judging their quality from the appear ance of one luckless bird which had just been killed by a brother sport. Unh&cJiug the fate of their compan ion, the silly birds leisur-ly approach the scena of slaughter; aud, unmind ful of tho los: cf a sister, the giddy bridesmaids flock ia large numbers to a wedding fleck, alas! as if they couried death and s i&hcd plaintively for the sacrifice. Tho ardor with which young ladies strive for secondary bridal honors is inexplicable, saveou the theory of tho association of ideas. To the virginal mind, a bridesmaid suggests a bridj as naturally as a monkey suggests an or gansgrind'. r. There fs a science teo, iu the association, for if Darwinism be true, a moukey is as liable to becumo an organ grinder as a bridesmaid to become a bride. The scientific prob ability is the same in both cases, and with that alone we are accustomed to denl. Association in fancy leads to association in fact; and, although the position perse is humble, as tho mon key by his antics amuses the bystand er?, the bridesmaid, crushing for the time her pride , consents to lend ani mation to a wedding. Using the posis tion as a stepping stone to higher things, the maiden gives not a tho'i ght to the tim-3 when that inter esting e ensun mation is to be brought about. Enough for her that she is a bridesmaid, to share in tho illusion and display of a wedding as a second ary and not as yet primary cause. As bridesmaids generally outnum ber the brid3 four to one if the pro. portion be not larger it is a question to us, why a bride will suffer herself to be eclipsed by her satellites in silk. For usual! y, so far as beauty is con certed, she cannot be said to excell tbo galaxy of mai3t who support her daring the scene. She is timid and restrained they arc bold and confi dent. She ;r in tears at the thought, of a sppar.it iivi from home; they are jubilant for their horizon of happincps is vat unclouded. Sho conocals her face be noath a veil, they thrust forward their countenances without tho leaH hesita tion. Sho sis;h9, they smile. She undergoes the ceremony with the tre pidation of a victim serious in thought; thev think it is good fun and net aecordingly. She has eyes for one alone, to whom phe h bound "for hot ter, for worse," they hrve eves for all. and come only tosae and be seen. These circumstances, however, do not inter fere with tho brides complacency, for now sht can look down on them with a matronly air, and condemn their graces as girlish and flighty. The mercurial temperaturo of society is fairly evidenced by the bridesmaid question. As soon as Miss Sillioton is announced to be 'engaged, excite ment, sways in the circle wherein she moves. AH the young ladies who have the pleasure of her acquaintance throng her house, smile upon her and pour in their congratulations, with a fervor which threaten damage to the door bell, and to the temper of my lady's maid, w ho, forced to discharge the functions of nurse, waitress and doorkeeper, resents any increase in her duties without a corresponding ins crease in her wasres. The bride fleet is in danger of being over powered by attention she never knew she had such a host of well-wishers. "Oh, you dear Miss Sillieton !'' rap turously exclaims one. "How well you do look!" chimes in another. 'T never saw you prettier!" aserts a third. "Do you spend your honeymoon in Eurone?" asks a fourth, when in fact she did not care whether the honey moon be spent in Europe or in the moon. "You ought to bo congratulated," giggles a fifth. "I never saw a handsomer man in all my life but you need'lt be jeal ous. As the lust speaker is carotty head ed, Miss Sillietou assures her, with much warmth, that she is not joalous- As compliments are cheap, the brid? elect meeds he friends with much dignity, and, after they have gone, seats herself composedly to work. She is in a quandary indeed. After a spicy debate, in which all her family joined, the number of bridesmaids has been finally reduced to five. With tears in her eyes she piteously begired for six, and faintly hinted at seven The family remained obdurate, al though Miss Siilieton vowed that if she ever married again she would have eiuht. At this declaration everybody but the bridegroom ap. plauded her wit. From tho thirty young ladies of her acquaintance are the five to be selected, and she is onr polled to canvass the claima of each. Tf she asks Miss Jones and seglocta Miss Smith, the latter will he her eas emy for life; it" s-lie sn;ib3 Miss Jone3, she will have to st.ub Miss Jones' brother, who is a rich broker tnd an eligible parti for her young sister jut graduating (mm ehort dresses. If she slights Mits Smith there is uo telling j what might happen, for Smith, jerey ; a widower, is a retired coal merchant ; and the bride's unmarried aunt would i not bear of Smith's rejection. Af ter a delay of a week, in which all these matters are disenssed. tho bri.le seizes both horns of the dilemmr!, and necer-ts Smith and Jones.
