The Torchlight admits that in ita
article in reference to the University,
it may have U3.d "words tbat would
have been avoided in more careful
writing." It also very frankly ex
presses ita readiness to withdraw what
ever words it has used injudicou ly
end whatever f-tutements it baa made
under wrong impressions. Indeed
the writer of the article in q-tca-liou
declare. himself to have oi.ee
been a student at the TJimer.--i
ty and still to be ita unvary
ing oiid arm-st friend, and protentt

We are truly iMaa to fiud the writer
in the Torchlight to be a friend and
not an neniy to the University, and
we promise him he will ever find th
Joubn'Al redv to co-operate with him
most heartily in bringing to light and
in curug any detects there may be in
ita mauitgement and conduct. We say
this candidly and frankly.
But before we conclude this article
we wish to correct a misapprehension
in regard to the manner of electing
the present Board of Trui tees. The
' lorchlight says:
"We heard in Raleigh that the
present Board of Trusteed were mainly
selected by some two or three gentle
men. Doubtless they did the beet
they could. It is possible to make a
better board. We do not fauc that
way or selecting mem.
The facts of the case are briefly
these: Certain gentlemen from differ
ent parts of the State, some half dozen
perhaps then in Raleigh, who had
long and zealously labored for the
restoration of the University did, after
a 'careful canvass of the State, make
out a list of gentlemen whose position,
intelligence and influence and whose
devotion to its interests pointed them
out as proper to be made Trustees of
the University. This list embraced
members of every religious denomina
tion and of every political party in the
State. By the time the list was com
pleta a dictum or opinion of the Su
preme Court was found intimating that
a Trustee of the University was an ,,of
ficer," and as under our constitution a
man cannot hold two officee, it necessi
tated the striking from the list a good
many ntmes, at least four Judges of
the Supreme Court for example and
. several members of the Legislature,
some of them known to be among the
most devoted friends cf the University
in the Htate. When the day appointed
for the election arrive ', it was realized
that the Legislature had quite an ele
phant on ita hand?, for the reason tbat
- there ware G-L Trustees to bo elected
and to be elected viva voce by a joint
vote of both Houses. A factious mi
nority might have made the election
an almost interminable proceeding.
Objection was made, too, that a
"slate' had been fixed up by
parties, not members of the Legis
lature, to control the selection of Trus
tees. Some confusion followed, that
bodetl not well for the struggling Uni
versity, in the midst of which it hap
pened to strike some one that as
there were 61 Trustees and 8 Con
gressional Districts it would simplify
matters if it was agreed to elect 8 at
a time and to permit the members
from each Congressional District to
caucus and nominate 8 Trustees. This
arrangement v;ts at once agreed to by
the members of the Legislature and
without consultation with special
friends of the University who were
not members.
The writer of this well remembers
the di.smay he felt when told of the
agreement, for he saw at once and
calred attention to the fact thatif ad
hered to it would enable the Radicals to
appoint negroes as Trustees in the First
and Secoud Congressional districts
But ol jtction and protest from those
not members uvniled nothing. The
several caucuses were held and nomi
nations made and confirmed that
smashed into fragments the "slate'
that had been carefully prepared with
the utrnot regard to every interest
and in its stead substituted the present
Board. These are the facts of the
case and in stating them we speak not
Irora hearsay.

EDITOIIIAL GnHlENTS FHOH
WASHINGTON.
Major Engelhard writes as as follows
from Washington:
MESSRS. SCATHES AND YBATKS.
On Thursday last two of our Repre
sentatives made their first speeches of
the session in the Hons. General
Scales, who was a member before the
war. had been heard there in tbat
churuber, but Major Yeates "fleshed
his maiden flword." It was a proud
day for North Carolina,
G' ueral Scales spoke from manu
script, a well-considered, able and
convincing argument, upon the abases
of the government, especially in its
treatment of the Indians. Temperate,
considerate, well-written and well
tpnken, the t poech i? justly regarded
us one of the best delivered daring
the s.-Kfi.:n. It has added greatly to
his already leading position in the
House.
M-jor Yeates took the House by
storru. Laboring under severe indis
position, and securing the floor during
the latter part of the day, after , the
me in b rs we e worn down from many
hours of continuous discussions, he
began under serious difficulties.
Rising superior to them, however, in a
few minutes he filled the vacated
chairs and secured undivided atten
tion from the members, the lobbies
and the crowded galleries.
Impetuous in manner, clear an I
forcible in statement and conservative
in sentiment, he arraigned the Repub
lican party in one of the most masterly
speeches ever heard in the House.
There was a freshness in the manner
and matter which won the attention
aid sympathy of all, and the speaker
was continually interrupted with the
most rapturous applause. The fact
tha- the Chairman forgot to stop him
at the end of his hoar, and that no
one raised the point of order, is a com
pliment seldom paid to a speech, when
so many are desirous of being heard,
and a speaker's time is watched with
suoh a jealoas eye.
These two speeches have done much
to add to the fine- reputation already
acquired by our North Carolina dele
gation. Indeed in both Honses no
State has more reason to be proud of
her representatives. When our peo
ple learn to appreciate her public men
as they deserve, we will find that their
influence will be extended and the
State will be the gainer.
THK PTXjOTAGK LAWS.
There has been a desperate effort
made before the Committee on Com
merce of the House of Representatives
to repeal the law requiring compulso
ry pilotage on coastwise vessels. The
i ffort has received a decided check re
cently by the committee concluding to
j report adversely, but a number of New
England vessel owners are now in
Washington using 9very -effort to get
the committee to reconsider their de
termination in the matter.
Our immediate Representative, Hon.
A. M.Waddell, has been untiring in his
efforts to defeat the bill, having sub
mitted several able arguments before
the committee, which have had great
influence with them. In connection
with Messrs. Goode of Norfolk, and
Heatridge of Savannah.he has been in
defatigable in the matter.
Senator Ransom also has been faith
ful to the promise he mode the pilots
last summer in his speech to them,
He has brought to bear his great in'
fluenco upon the members of the com
mittee, and will continue to do all he
can to defeat the bill before the com
mittee and in the House. We assure
our friends who who have this matter
at heart that their interest could not
be in better hands. We feel well satis
fied now that the bill will not pass.
It often hanoens that the ink with
which old records were written, upon
either paper or parchment, has faded
and rendered the characters entirely
undecipherable. It is well therefore
to know tbat snob writings may easily
be rendered legible by moistening the
paper with water and then passing
over the line in writing a brash wbicl
has bben dipped in a solution of fuI
phide of ammonium. The writing will
immediately appear quite darkin color,
and this color, in the case of parch
ment, it wi'l preserve. Records which
were treated in this way in the Ger
manic Museum in Nur9mburg ten
yeai s ago are still in the same condi
tion as immediately after the appli
cation of the process. On paper how
ever the color gradually fades again,
but it may be restored at pleasure by
the application of the sulphide. The
explanation of the action of this sub
stance is very eitr.ple: the iron which
enters into the composition of the ink
is transformed by the reaction into
the lilnck sulphide.
Some idea of what a nice soft plact
the Presidency of the United .States is
may be obtained from the f liowing
annual expenditures for the White
House: Fifty thousand dollars' salary;
a private secretary at $3,500; an n
ststant private secretary at 2,500; two
clerks at $2,300; a Stewart at 2,000; a
messenger at $1,200; a furnace keeper 8 1
$861; a night watchman at $900: an
usher at $1,200; two doorkeepers at
$2,400. But this is not all. The con
tingent expenses, including stationery,
are $6,000; tha annual repairs cost
$10,000; the annual refurnishing, $10,
000; fuel for executive mansion and
greenhouse, $T,000; lights and fix
tures, lamps and gas-fittings, $10,000;
official postage stamps, $600 making
in all about $116,000 a year. The ex
penses under other former administra
tions have been scarcely one -half
what they are now. Thin is "Grant-ism."
The Louis rille Courier-Journal
draws this neat distinction: "The pol
itician is an actor. The jourmilidt is
critic. The one makes speeches and
sometimes laws. The other dissects
these. Without the press there would
be no restraint upon thelaw-makingor
administrative pawer. Undoubtedly
the press is of ten conducted in a weak,
time-serving, ignorant and unjust Way,
and of course there are as many cor
rupt and foolish politicians'. But lit
tle is to be feared from this class. It
can do no-lasting harm. Its censure
is as worthless as its praise, and, as it
commonly uses the one as untbought
edlv and as indiscriminately as the
other, the man who is blamed by it to
day may be extolled by it to morrow.'
TKONXFOKX itlctJ Ell EE, KQ.
A correspondent of the Charlotte
Observer says:
In canvassing the various candidates
mentioned in connection with the ap
proaching State election, we are grati
fied to see the name of that pure
patriot and courteous gentleman,
Montfort McGehee, of Person, sug
gested as a suitable candidate to be
our Lieutenant Governor, and to pre
side over our Senate. Polite and
affable in his manners, upright and
above suspicion in his dealings, frank
- and manly m his bearing, there is not
a man in the State who possesses in
more eminent degree the qualities that
lit him for the important trusts and
high duties incident to the office we
have mentioned.
The Observer heartily endorses
what its correspondent says, and de
clare3 Mr. McGehee to be a gentleman
gifted with a strong mind, possessed
of extensive information, an effective
speaker, a stainless patriot and a sue
cessful farmev.
Mr. McGehee deserves all of this and
more too. We know tf no man in
North Carolina who possesses more, of
the elements that deservedly command
honor and respect than Montfort
McGehee. Born with a good mind, he
has improved it by years of close
study and careful reading and by travel
at home and abroad; a good lawyer
and a successful farmer, he has yet
found time to attain a rare degree of
literary culture; well versed in his
torical studies, especially curious in
everything pertaining to the history
of his own State, ho is also thoroughly
familiar with the politics of the
country, past as well as present. But
superior to these all, great in -degree
and admirable in kind as they are, is
the spotless parity of the man's pri
vate life.
Those who know Montfort McGehee
know that in saying this we use not
the language of exaggeration.
The allegation or insinuation the
idea has been put in a dozen different
forms that the Belknap corruptions
began with Mrs. Belknap, and that
she received the first money from the
sale of the post-traderships, is badly
damaged says the Savannah Morning
Arew by the fact that the receipt tr
the express company which delivered
the first money forwarded by Marsh i
signed by W. W. Belknap. Marsh,
to be sure, insisted before the com
mittee that he paid the first money to
Mrs. Belknap, but he was much dis
concerted when the chairman informed
him that the express company's re
ceipt was signed by the Secretary of
War. Marsh says he thought this ar
rangement would disgrace the Belk
naps, if it was known, though he did
not thiuk it was criminal. That is,
he thought it was right to bribe a
Caoinet officer if he could do it with
out detection. Beiccr a cood R,i;i
there is nothing extraordinary iu
Marsh's line of reasoning. OrvilJe
'irant didn't oven think there was anv
disgrace in his brother, the President,
furnishing him with any number of
post-traderships to farm out to who
ever would give him the best divide.
A Washington dispatch says: "Mr.
Cockling now gives out that he will
not consent to a recouc liation with
Blaine until blaiie gets up in the
House and publicly declares that in
caning (jonkliug a "turkey cock" he
meant no disrespect to either party
none to Conkling, because tbo turkey
oock was recommended by Franklin as
our national symbol, aud none U the
tnrtey cock, because it i agreed ou
all hands that Conkling is th bf auty
vue oeuate. xne man who made
that "dispatch" is a wretch 1 Isn't he
now ?
For the benefit of those seeking post
traderships, says the Washington Re-
publican, it mav be interesting for
them to know tbat "no vacancies are
known at the War Department, and
that the new Secretary of War has or
dered that in order to secure the po
sition the trader must be recommended
by the council of administration at the
post. The counoil of administrKtioh
is a majority of the officers of the
post, and the field of peculation is thus
transferred from Washington." Time
was when if there ere no vacancies con
venient they could easily be made, that
s if "brother Orvil" was ouVol a job,
and then it was tbat the held of pecu
lation was not transferred from Wash
ington. Poor Grant.
The other morning, 6ays the Knpx
ille Press and Herald, a huuband
escorted his wife to one of the depot?,
that she might start on a visit to the
country, to be gone six week, aud as
she was about ready to enter the cir,
he said: "Dear m?, but won't I be
lonesome though !" "I rather think
yon will," she responded, in a ur,
cutting tone, "for -I have arranged
with six women, four poiictmeu, and
two detectives to keep an eve o:i you!"
He smiled, but it was a sad smile.
James H. Harriss "of color" figures
as a full blown delegate for the State

National Convention while Major W.
A. Smith the probable candidale for
his party for Lieutenant Governor is
obliged to content himself with the
humble position of alternate. Qiuvre:
t tbii poetic justice ? Remembering
now ino Major's white stomach tn -ned
at the negro civil rights bill, this put
ting him behind a negro looks .sus
picious. Hat her rough on this en im-
pion of the white race to niuke him

The Jackson (MiKsisbippi) Clarion
says: "The crim of which A nts

rous and more heinous thau he had

Washington, Ma.ch 27.
The events of the week, from a
Washington standpoint, may be told
in very few words. The distinguished
exile, Marsh, returned from Canada
with his memory steeped in oblivion.
When he first appeared before the
judiciary committee he remembered
very little that he had told the com
mittee on war claims two weeks before,
but, under a crucial eross-exaininatiou)
he was compelled to divulge his knowl
edge of the fact that Belknap was cog
nizant of the criminality of his rela
tions with the post traders, at least, is
early as 1872. This evidence will
effectually divest Gen. Belknp of the
plea that he received the monev inno
cently, through his wife, supposing it
to come from an investment of hers
made prior to their marriage.
Impeachment proceedings will be
instituted uext week, and it is believed
by many that if the ex-S-cretary is not
success! ul in a plea to the iurisdiction
of the Senate denying ' their right to
impeach a citizen ex officio, he will
plead guilty at once. This will of
coarse very much simplify and abro-
viate tne impeachment business and
enab"e Congress to give more time to
legislative work.
Mr. Marsh ia his testimonv to-dav
entirely exonerated Mr. Clymer from
the charge, (which however was never
seriously believed) that he (Mr. Cly
mer) had been the cause of Marsh's
o vuu xxis ev. deuce
proves that Mr. Ciymer so far from
alarming him. to uso Marsh's lan
guage, "pacified him, aud was in no
way the cause of his flight.
Early during the present wc
bill was Introduced in the House mak
ing it a . eual offence to assess trov
ernment employes for election purposes
and was the occasion of au acrimonious
debate in which Mr. Biaine again ap
peared in his stereotyped roll of bully
and parliamentary trickster, and after
he had paralyzed the bill with amend
ments, rendering it practically non
efficient, it was passed It will be re
membered that some time ago then
was a p ocla-nation to the effect that
no government employe should be
assesst d for election purposes, but the
chairman of the National Republican
Committee, who is iu perfect accord
with the administsatiou, still prose
cutes the assesaments, and woe to the
toolisn employe who attempts to shield
himself with the President's proclama

HOK.JEKJ. VtATES
The reocnt able p ech tf the Repre
sentative from the First Congressional
Dist rict, Hon. Jesse J. Yeates, seen is
to have made a considerable flutter
among the Republican members and
press, and the efft-ct of his vigorous
blows is thus plainly seen. The speech
was so loudly oheered, and toe speaker
so warmly congratulated that the Re
publicans concluded to break its force
by a reply from one of their leading
orators! So the following day Gen
eral Hurlbert, of Illinois, was selected
for the purpose. He labored furiously,
but his speech fell still-born after the
impetuous and tolling blows from
Major Yeates. Indeed during the
delivery of Hurlberts speech, one
of the moirt distinguished Re
publicans of the House approached
Major Yeates and sail while he could
not endorse all he had uttered he
thanked him for the generous and pa
triotic st ntiments which pervaded his
speech, adding that the champion of
his owu putty theii on the floor was
failing far short of the mark.
Indeed Major Yeates has received
the most hearty congratulations from
all quarters, amoug others from New
York's distingushei Senator Judge
K ruau who w.s unstinted in his com
mendation. In a few minutes after its
close nearly twenty thousand copies of
the speech were subscribed for, several
thousand being ordered by telegraph
by the Democratic Executive Commit
tee of Connecticut. There was so much
good sense, so much freshness and
vigor and truth contained in it that it
took the House by storm. It has
placed Mjor Yeates 1 1 onca among
the gifted speakers of the body.
It w not to be wondered a' that the
Republican press of Washington and
elsewhere are endeavoring to counter
act the effects of this speech, by at
tack?, good uatured however, upon
Major Yeates. But their jibes are
pointless, and their humor unavailing
before his pitiless blows, aud the fact
that he was a Confederate soldier is
finally the only auswer which is made
to his merciless exposures of Repub
lican shortcomings and crimes crimen
not only against his iwn section, but
sgainst a common coantrj.
We, congratulate the people of his
District yes.of the entire State, upon
the possessiou of such a Representa
tive so patriotic, so fearless, so able
and 6o eloqueut.

A Washington special to the New
Orleans Times says: "The question of
veracity between the Attorney General
and the President is of the gravest na
ture. The President says he never
heard of the Attorney General's letter
until he saw it iu print. The Attorney
General on the other hand states posi
tively that the letter was prepared at
the request of the President, or rather
at hi order. The Judiciary Commit
tee will summon the President to testi-
m h A - 1 a
iy. irierrepont win proi.aoiy leave
the Cabinet on thiij account, as he says
that for some reason Grant has deter
mined to disown his official acts."
Commenting upon the issue of
veracity between the President and
his Attorney General referred to in the
above special dispatch the Philadelphia
7V mes says: "Mr. Pierrepout is one
of those unfortunate men who are al
ways trying to put themselves right
aud never quite succeeding. The
worst muddle he has got into yet is
about the letter which Babcock pub
lished, ordering District Attorneys to
let no guilty witness escape. He l as
inspired the Associate 1 Press, half
dozen times, to send out explanations
for him. but the more he exDlains the
more apparent he makes it that he is
ashamed of his part in that business,
xzis present care is to persuade the
country that "there is not the slighte
question of veracity" between him and
Uraut about the letttr, aud that "their
relation were nover of a morefneud y
character tnan now. If Pierrepout
can manage to maintain friendly reftr
tioas with hi chi-sf uuder the circum
stances, it is nobody's bu-uueas but his
owu; but the public can form its own
opiuiou upon the existence of a ques
tion of veracity, and the most we can
say is, thatwf it is the same storv that
they are all telling, they have a prc-
vokingly contradictory way of telling
it.;
HLVXSKS AND OllVIt,
The proofs are 'abundant, says the
New York Sun, various aud positive
that Orvil Grant was a large office
broker, trafficked in contracts and sold
public patronage to the biggest bid
der through his various advantages as
brother of he President. That this
busiuess was conducted on an exten
sive scato-, and must have been very
profitable, is - made manifest by the
disclosures thus far before Mr.
Clymer's committee, and by develop
ments from other sources. With free
access to information in all the depart
partments, and especially in those
wjuere tne practices of jobbery were
most notorious, Orvil Grant enjoyed
opportunities such as perhaps no other
outsider possessed, and he seems to have
utilized -them ia every possible way.
The President's l ame awed al! oppo
sition into silence, and opened doors
which were closed by lw and the
usages of the public service.
If the President had not set the ex
ample by his personal conduct in -aj -
pointing men to scats iu the Cabinet
from whom lie had received money,
houses and other property; if he had
net accepted valuable presents and re
warded the donors with office and pre
ferment; if he had not permitted Mrs.
Grant and other members of his
family to recive costly gifts and repay
them with public honors and promo
tion, suspicion would not attach to
him as it now does iu connection with
the corrupt transactions of his brother.
But by scandalous disregard of all
propriety and shameful abuses in his
great office, the President has invited
distrust of his motives, .created a be
lief in the public mind that he is
avaricious and venal, and justified the
suspicions now largely entertained
that he has personally shared in the
profits of Otvil's job's, and in the
speculations of various rings, whose
chief have been nearest in his confi
dence and favor. These conclusions
are not derived from public rumor,
which has been bu-y wi h the lo se
habits aud looser ideas of General
Graut since 18C9 They are estab
lish d by testimony which is crushing.
aud which may yet be followed by the
gruvest consequences.

The Washington National liepubli
can says "there are more white Re
publicans in North Carolina than in
the entire South combined." As, all
told, the Radical party has never
polled 20,000 white votes in North
Carcliua the positive declaration of the
Republican speaks volumes as to the
color of its party in the South.
. The registered negro vote in North
Carolina in 1863 was 80,927. The
highest Radical vote ever given in the
State, that for Caldwell in 1872, was
98,132, that is to say only 17,205 votes
over their negro strength. This cal
culation, counting as it does all fraud
ulent negro votes and fraudulent
white votes cast for their ticket as legal
white votes, shows that the Radical'
party cannot claim a v te beyond
20,000 as its white strength in North
Carolina. Therefore if there are not
as many white Radicals in all the
South combined ns in North Carolina
it follows that therebas been a wonder
ful deal of cheating at the polls in other
Southern States, which is just what we
suspect is the truth.
