Parson Sinclair was the chairman and Parson Hester was chaplain, at least he open ed the meeting with prayer. There were eight delegates from other conn ties present, six white and two colored, the rest of the crowd being mostly county negroes. Dr. Norment was nominated as the candidate Elector, accepted the position made a speeoh. Dockerv, "My Oliver," was nominated for Congress, but it is not known whether ho will ac cept or not. He iter and Norment both claimed to be close personal friends of Governor Vance ! There were many things witnessed on that day, doubt less, calculated to make an honest man's gorge rise.but the Enquirer says: The most disgusting scene was at the "pole raising," where J. G. Hector arose with u Bible in his hand aud preached a sermon to the negroes in the street. Any ono wlio has any idea of Hester's true character may have Borne conception of the sacrilegious scene we witnessed. It would require pages to tell of his infamy; but we would simply say that he is the most brutal, wholly corrupt and polluted scoundrel that treads the soil of North Carolina, and he is looked upon as such by the whole State, for his in famous character is notorious. xet, such a man opened this Republican Convention with prayer, add preached them a sermon. Honest Republicans, blush for shame to be found in such company, and tor decency s sake come out from among them. We think that the Radicals lost many votes here. We heard of one Republican saying, after witnessing the day's proceedings, "If that be Re publicanism tho Lord save us from Re- puhhcanisJi. The better class ol Radicals were disgusted and the Dem ocrats aroused. For i ho Jour pal Vance Tilden Club at morllit'l l owiuliip, Itruii'iwiek Count j . Northwest Township, Brums ( wick Co., Aug. 5, 187H. s Mr. Editor Previous notice having been given, there assembled to-day, August 5th, 1876, at Freeman's Cross-roads, a large aud enthusiastic meeting of the voters of Upper North west for the purpose of organizing a Vance-Tildeu Club for the campaign. Tlie meeting was organized by call ing B. D. Applewhite to the chair and after the object of the meeting was ex plained (at the reqiust of the chair man) by D. S. Cowan, one of the Ex ecutivo Committee for the county, a permanent organization was mailo by calling Salter LloyJ to the chair and appointing the undersigned secretaries for the purpose of reporting the pro ceedings of tho meeting and formation of a club to tho Journal- D. C. Allen being called upon ad dressed the meeting at some length, showing the great necessity of reform. That he rejoiced that the people had fully valued the situation; that he had received invitations to -be present to day to assist in organizing olnb.i from three different townships in Bladen county, showing that the people did not intend to bo longer robbed of tho fruits of their labor. He proceeded to make (as our physician would say) a thorough diagnosis of the bodv politic, and found it so in fested with sores and corruption that he would really be uneasy about the case dnriug the warm season were it not that we. had a nplendid phy sician wlio made corruption a special ty and had cured thi worst canes on record in the State of New York and reduced the expenses of nursing the cases from $15,000,000 to $8,000,000, and that the people everywhere were nursing the case and if we can survive until November the case would cer tainly get well. After he had spoken for thirty or forty minntes on National and State matters and concluded, Mr. D. S. Cowan being called, gave the United States Senators a sound rasp iog on the Belknap case and proceeded in a clear.forcible and eloquent speech to show the very great necessity of the people's supporting the constitutional amendments. He compared facts and figures with the assertions of Ed. Tay lor made in the later canvass and showed the fallacy oi Taylor's, argu ments conclusively.

Mr. Edii-or: The hellowincr and night howling of negroes and worse white men, which for weeks past have agitated Pender couuty, culminated in tiie 1 i.adica I Couuty Convention here today. In number and enthusiasm the meeting was a failure, not one tenth being present that were expect ed and those in attendance were prin cipally tricksters who by intrigue had become delegates to the Convention. Of course the usual number of white Radicals were on hand to besprinkle the blackness and court and hug the darling uegro. But let us enter tho menaererie: W. J. Bivins is unpointed uormanent i-intr master, and J. D. Sellars to keep the count. The first pcenewas an attempt to settle a contested delegation from the town of Lilliugtou. Bivius being chairman appointed such a committee as would settle the matter as he wished, and Bill Mclutiro and the oth er nghtlul delecrates were reieeted. Old Sherman, the most bear-looking African in the couuty, hoped Mcln tire would say nothing to offend "dis wise congregation so dem Dim,ocrats kin laugh.." Tom Brewington, a very sei.sible negro, reared and plnnged, and told how Henry Register boughf "dat nigger Peter McKethan." Peter arose to reply to the "nannydotes" (anecdotes) of Brewington and stormed the convention with the antics of a well-trained jack; here fnlly thirty were on the fioor at one time hollow ing and mingling their voices in a deafening howl. The animals were now all nncaged. The ring master belloAv-ed for "Or der! order!" but instead of thirty.now tho whole liave indulged in a general row the indescribable scene of about sixty buck negroes joining in a deafen ing pow-wow aud confusion. "Pints" of order we raised, the previous question was called, but nothing but sheer exhaustion calmed the. heated rage of the iiowling demons. When this row was at fever heat Arch Walker . (Tallow Tasso) nominated Bivens for the Legislature. Bivins being chairman of course took the vote and declared himself nominated. Your correspondent was in two .feet of Biviut-. when the vote was taken but could hear nothing he. said, so great was tho tumultuous noise. But Walker continued to nominate, and Bivins conlinned to take the vote till the whole ticket was gone through with. So Walker, with one or two at his side, nominated the followiug ticket: For Sheriff R M. Croom. For Register of Deeds I H." Brown. For Coronor George W. Carr, col ored. For County Commissioners H. C. Register, C. M. D. Humphrey, S. Wagsfcflfl' Elisha Tate4 colored, and George VV. Bordeanx, colored. For Surveyor Thad. Moore. When the row subsided and it was found that Wi lker and Bivens alone had nominated the ticket the howling and barking were renewed, but the chairman became luillisb and refused to entertain any motiou till order was restored. An adjournment was how ever effected. From the manner in which the nom iuations were made, aud the terrible dissatisfaction thereat, it was evident that the thing had to be done over again. Ar any rare the bell-weathers saw that something must be done to quiet the dissatisfaction occasioned by tlio terrible row iu the forenoon. Caucussiug set in, and at 3 p. m. the performance began again. The same dipgustjng Rcenes were rehearsed and the same terrible noise renewed. Bivens arose, he said, for de sake of "pase and hominy (peace and har mony) uese gemmen (black negroes) mus quit da rowin or it will 'stroy the publican party and in two years we can't find de ta 1 of it." He was finally bnehed by the uproar aud noise. At this juncture one Humphry, who had been doing his snorting and blowiug in one corner unnoticed, took his exit with a "g d d m such a mess." Old man Gamburg, mit his pipe, appeared in the dnsky crowd and made t hings lively with his double and twisted . brogue; said be: "1 best no m re come to dis Jcouwention mit de; d m fools," and the old fellow cursed out and took liis seat. .Sheriff Horrell gets on his musclo and asserts his authority as a peace officer, but Bill Bell a drunken negro tells him to go to h 1, and the violent sheriff, though a delegate, withdrew from the Con vention in disgust. Sam Bell nomi nates a man whom he said ws an honest man. but they cried, "den he is no publican, needn.'t nominate him." Cud jo Larkins (col ) now tries his hand: "gemmen is we" got a conwen tion. or is we trvin to-see who kin be de biggest fool; n.w Mr. Chairmon de enllud man is bin votin fnr over ten years aud now can't git no office, de white men in our party gits de office, I am tired of votin fur dis white trash." Cudjo was runuiog for sheriff but was ignored. Thus the matter went on for about an hour. The same yelling, cursing 1 and howling was again renewed. Ihe critters" had all become hoarse from continual hollowing and blowing, their united hollow reminding one of a lot of caged beasts. This time "JestiBs' Bill Moore, from Wilmington, came to the rescue. He saw that Bivins had failed to manage the meeting, and he essayed to prompt him. "Now put dat motion, Mr. Bivins; now set down Mr. B. ; now git up Mr. B." were about tho character of his prompting. Bivins was very obedient. By continual drumming on the tables and floor to drown the noise of thos 3 speaking, the row was somewhat quelled, and the work of the forenoon was undone. This time three or four negroes did . tho voting by placing votea in . the bands of delegates who oouid not read. The following ticke was finally i om mated: For the Legislature Alfred Loyd colored. Sheriff-R. M. Croom. Register I. H Brown. Coroner Andrew Nixon, colored. Commissioners H. C. Reeister. W, J. Bivins, C. M. D. Humphrey, Owen uarr, colored, aud Elmha Tate. col d. The offices of Treasurer and Surveyor were left open to be filled at the dis cretion or the County E?tf cutive Com mittee. Even this ticket will fail to quiet the disorganized elements of the party, so disgusted aud sickened are the better element of the party over such open aud apparent trickery, bribery and gagging. The better clement of the Radical rarty in Pender will not sup port this ticket, but may call another convention. Thus ended the County Republican Convention, and thus ended, without exaggeration, one of Jjthe most sicken ing, contemptible scenes ever wit nessed here. And all this noise and rowing, all this, cursing and vile abuse failed to turn the stimach of such white men as E. Taylor, Sevmour Wagstaff, W. E. Cowan a nd others who were born and reared in better company and for nobler purposes, but now who bung around with a hungry look a-id anguished lieart.hngging and elbowing negroes for a position in their corrupt ranks. Gentlemen, has your sense of pride departed with your sense of decency and shame ? If not, wash your hands of this filth f.nd cor ruption and assert your claims to re spectability. Radicalism is only skin deep with you as yet;ere it reaches the bone, reform and save yourself, your proud ancestry and your promising posterity from inevitable and lasting blush and disgrace. Though you be poor, never forget the teachings of re finement und integrity von have so proudly iiiherited. and never forcet -hat the Auplo-Saxoii blood courses your veins, and for some noble purpose. Walter Cherry, n radical masristrate of this township aud a young man of promise, has been affiliating with the negroes on every occasion, bqt to-day became disgusted with their disgrace ful proceedings and joined the Tilden and Vance Club of Lillington. He did right, and was welcomed back to his first Jove and no questions asked. Pender. Lillington, N. C, Aug. 5, 1870. Heiiiiieratic iVIeclinic in SuiitSi ville. SMixnviLLE. Aug. 5th, 187C.

Craven' Sermon Laurinburg, August 8, 1876. Dear Sir: Having a spare moment I will tell yon about a trip the Laurin hnrger8 took last Sunday morning to attend the Methodist Conference at Rockingham. There were three passen ger cars used ou the occasion and they were full to over ruuniug. The Rev. Dr. Craven preached and it was quite a treat to hear him. His text was from the 5th chapter of Matthew and 16th verse, "Let your light so ;-!oue before men that they may see y-ar good workm and glorify your facher who is in heaven." The text was well applied to all, by illustration, to the I ai mer, the merchant, tho doctor, tb- lawyer and the magistrate, to the husband aud wife, and in fact to all mankind. I shall not attempt to re peat a word of the sermon for fear of doing injustice to the orator, though his sermon was sopbau 1 think 1 could repeat nearly the whole of it. 1 have heard the same text used oftn but not in the wav Dr. Craven used it. It was certainly a treat to hear it, and the denomination to which Dr. Craven belongs should feel proud tney have sneh a man. He isau orna ment to his calling, a shining light iu his ehurch. There was a very largo congregation to hear the distinguished orator, the house being crammetl lull, while a great many were out of doors. Theexcursionersall enjoyed the trip, or they successfully played the hypo crit by putting ou pleasant faces. After church a little shower of rain prevent ed much prominafliog and a good view of the town. It is not much of a country for farming; betweeu here aud llockinghani on the railroad I. saw a few very fine looking farms. I don't think farmers are quit.o so favored up there ",s here and south of here. Mr. McLean, of tlie firm of McCaskil & McLean, has been traveling for the last :ew days thirty miles south and ten miles north of this place, and he told mo last night lie never saw so fine a prospect for crops before in his life. A Tilden anil Vance club will meet next Saturday and organize in full, wheu you will hava notice of it. In my next I propose to give your readers the statiaties f this quiet and pleasant place as near as I can. Wisliing you and Reform great suc cess, I am, truly yours, Subscriber. French'h.Creek P.

O'Hanlan. Vice Presidents F. J. Anders, Fred Thompson. Secretary S. G. Worth. Treasurer R P. Allen. Great iuterest and determination was shown in the coming contest. In our small township we enrolled fifty names at the first meeting. W. Settle's Honesty and Honor. From the Monroe Enquirer. We notice that several of our Dem ocratic exchanges speak of Judge Set tle in this , manner: "We differ with him politically, but personally and socially we respect him as an honest, honorable, high-toned gentleman." We do not pretend to' quote their lan guage exactly, but that is about the substance of it. Now, if they mean by saying that he is thus honest and honorable to convey the idea that he has never been caught stealing ft sheep, or publicly convicted in a court of an infamo'is .rioie, then we have nothing to say. W iieu they confine themselves to that narrow, stingy meaning, they may probably be correct; but when they speatc of honesty and houor, with their broad, comprehensive meaning, then they can with no propriety apply . .those , terms ? to . .Tom Net tie, uur moral pnuosopuy neve? taught us to ' call a man honnst who (initiated with iognes, and who stood by and countenauced them while they plundered the people. Ihe good "old time" people called that kind of a man a thief. The principles oi hon or and patriotism which were instilled into our young mind by the pnrest and most venerated instructors of the old school, taught us that an intelli gent man iiio would "go back" on his country, his people, his race, his "color and previous condition," was, instead of being an houest man. an unmitigated scoundrel aud . traitor. Probably under the new order of things in this very moral age. those old ideas about stric. public honesty and houor are all wrong, and we should Jcok with lens degree of con tempt upon a political thief and rene gade; but it will be a long time before wo call any Huch unprincipled poiiti- ciaus hornet or honorable, personally, socially, or in any other way. We uout mean to criticise our brethreu at all, for we have no doubt it was written carelessly and thought lessly. Uut wh do think that that kind of talk and feeliug towards such men have done more true injury to the democratic party thau anything else'. Wenk-kneed, weak-principled men have joined the republican party who would have been cood democrats to-day, had they been made to feel the weight of the publio indignation aud the lash of public sentiment, and this is the reason that North Carolina, with her large white population, has been radical, and Virginia and Georgia with a less majority have long been over whelmingly democratic. We have as much respect as any man tor the right each man has to his own political opinions, and to ex ercise those rights, but we at the same time claim similar rights, and if he is ignorant and uninformed in his politi cal opinions, we claim the right to treat him as such, aud to pity and ex cuse him, and if he is a scoundrel in his apolitical opinions, we will treat him as such with contempt aud scorn. Wo should treat political aud public i . racais in the same way wo do per sonal and private rascals. There is no true reason for a diffWeuce. A- mau who by political measures robs us of the fruits of our honest toil, is entitled to no more regard or respect than the thief who robs our hen-roost, and a man who would violate the sanctity and purity of the social circle, by the Civil Rights Bill is as great an object of abhorence and disgust as the vile contemptible fellow who would at tempt to personally force upon the society of our families a low dirty ne gro. No, gentleman, "we take none of that in ours," when its necessary we call a "shovel a shovel." the war William A. has ceased to fancy horn music except when the notes are all liquid. ; It: is said by well informed gentlemen that Smith has completely lost all of his influence in Johnston, and in some portions of the county, as in Meadowa township, the people have not patience enongh with him to hear him speak. Raleigh Sentinel. A French physician makes the re markable statement that one-half at least of the so-called drowned persons are buried alive, and' that thev mv be brought to life by proper treatment after having been "several hours under water." His remedy is to get out the water, pour, in and inject alcoholic stimulants, and nse a whip energeti cally, or hot irons in bad cases. The statement has been partially confirmed by the resuscitation of a man after he had been under water in one of the Seine baths for more than twentv r minuses. WEEKLY STATEMENT !! -!, - .

Our province is not politics, and we would not, if we could, influence through our paper the political senti ments or vote of any reader of the Ad vocate, We have our party prefer ences, it is true; but as far as we are able to prevent it, they are not allowed to "crop out," even, in our columns. And we do not think we violate our rule in that regard when we condemn and rebuke tho intemperate and heat ed letter of President Grant to Gov. Chamberlain, of South Carolina, con cerning the recent unfortunate occur rence at Hamburg, of which we gave an acccuut last week. The affair was lamentable and disgraceful, and the guilty parties deserve the condemna tion of all the people from the -President down, as well as the severe pun ishment of the law. But when the President of the United States perverts an official letter to the purposes of a political harangue, and taking the Hamburg riot as his text, makes a general onslaught upon the South, he deserves the censure of the public press and the people whose rnler he is. The President says: "The scene at Hamburg, as cruel, bloodthisty, wan ton, unprovked and uncalled for as it was, is only a repetition of the course which had been pursued in other Southern States within the last few years, notably iu Mississippi and Louisiana. Mississippi is governed to day by officials chosen through fraud and violence, such as would scarcely be accrediated to savages much less to a civilized and christian people." "Nothing is claimed for one State that is not freely accorded to all others.uu less it be the right to kill negroes and republicans without fear of punish ment and without loss of caste or rep utation. This has see mad to be a privilege claimed by a few States." . Aside from the fact that the letter was written before a full investigation and statement ot tlie facts counected with tho Hamburg affair had been, made, aud was therefore bused on as sumptions or ex parte statements, which might or might not bektrue, there is a severity of tone and an in temperance .of . Reeling manifested which does not comport well with the dignity of an official . document. He goes "dehors the record," too, to re flect severely upon the other Southern States, in such a way that a foreigner upon reading it would believe that throughout the South a gent ral tate of affairs has existed, similar to the one at Hamburg. His attack upon the people and rulers of Mississippi was uncalled for by the purposes of his communication to Governor Chamber lain. And whan it is remembered that the committee of Congress, appointed to investigate the alleged: Mississippi election frauds and riots, has not yet reported the intemperance and reck lessness of Mr. Grant's language will more clearly appear. Life, liberty and property are a safe in tho South as in tho North. Hamburg-affairs may occur occasion ally, just as outrages may oojur in the North; but they are sporadic and not symptomatic of the general condition of Southern society or evidence of a wide spread feeling of enmity between the races. The authority of the law is respect ed and courts are able to enforce obe dience to its mandates; and while some outrages have occurred, shocking to humanity and disgraceful to ..civiliza tion, still the Southern people are to be commended, generally, for their forbearance under unusual provoca tions to wrong doing. They will not therefore feel grateful ' to President Grant for the unjust light in which his letter places them before th world, and for the bad feefing which it will serve to keep alive on the part of fho Northern people toward the South. Blew Ulm Off. , Last Eriday Billy Smith, the radical candidate .for Lieutenant-Governor, and Ike Young, the revenue candidate for Congress in this district, pat in an appearance in Meadows township, in the southeastern portion of Johnston tjounty, for the purpose of speech- makiner.
