Before our mxt issue the elections in Indiana and Ohio will Lave taken place and we warn our readers and the Democratic party generally not to build their hopes too high upon the result. It may be that we will be de feated in both States. Grant has thrown the whole weight of the Federal Government in the scale for Hayes and Wheeler, and that ia h power by no means to bo disregarded iu forecasting the result. Money ban been poured into those States aa freely a if it had been so much water. The bloody shirt has b6eu waved until every bad passion of the human be;rt that could be aroused has been aroused. Every species of hatred and ntalice and all uncharitablenei-fi, have alt been ap pealed to. Avarice too has. been duly re.egnized as a most powerful factor and voters have been bought and sold like sheep in the shambu s. Culoni zntion has been openly going on in the cities and larger towns. In word, every means, both fair and foul, that, the ingenuity and rascality of man cm Id devise Las been used to secure the success of the Itauicul candidates, and it would be hop.rsg against hope .almost to exi ct the Democracy to victorious, it, win be remenJuoreu, too, that such a result has been antici ; pattd from the outset, that the norni- nation of Mr. Tildex was an avowed concession of Indiana and Ohio to the; lladieals, it being well understood, that neither of those Spates was neces-: sary to the election of Mr. Tiuden. There will then be nothir g of ill omen to us if either or both, of the States of Indiana and Ohio shall go Itadical on Tuedaj next, for it will be precisely the result for which allow ance was openly and avowedly made when Mr. Tildes was nominated at St. Louis. If, however, both or either of those States snail go Democratic the case will be very different; indeed, in that event, the campaign will be virtually at an end and the election of Tilden and IInueicks assured beyond a doubt. We have thought proper to speak thus candidly to our readers in order that they may understand the facts as they really are. Defeat in Ohio and Indiana means no damage to our cause, but victory will briug with it a glorious triumph all along the lines. We have therefore nothing to lose and everything to gain on Tuesday next. The N. Y.

Waddell, in his opening, re marks, expressed his great gratifica tion at the honor thus so freely and so spontaneously offered him, and stated that while he felt and appreciated the compliment h feared his inability to equal expectations. He had just re turned from Brunswick county, where he spoke during the day, and was con siderably exhausted by the fatigue of a recent severe and arduous canvass. He then reverted to the great aatieaal issues of the day and his review of the entire fiell was one of the most able, comprehensive and conclusive arguments yet offered to $2,200,000,000.

Of eon:s-' to one is .a all su' prised at the realization of tb?r , anticipations, that the farce at St. fjoais has been-repeated ' and the defendani prbmptl j -, ! our people. He held np, in a mas terly manner, to the' view and the scorn of the honest people of this county, of whatever condition or class or nationality, the atnpandons frauds and corraptiona which have overrun the entire administration of the National affairs. With no weak hand and with no unrighteous wrath did he expose the rascalities of a venal gov ernment, with its Belknap's, - its Post traderships, its crooked whiskey thieves aud the various corruptions of the administration, from tke lowest round of the social ladder up to the very shadow of the White House. It could all be summed np in oneword, however, and that was Grantism, a new word and an appropriate one one coined for the expreas purpose of for Walker and Webster and Wooster combined did J not famish a word with which to ex press to the world, in the compass of eight letters, the origin, progress and, We all hope and believe, the downfall of the official rogues and thieves in all this fair land. The speaker paid his respects to the President for his high- harided usurpation of authority in Louisiana, when the Federal troops violated the sancticity of the Legisla tive halls and expelled threrefrom those invested with authority by the voice of the. people; be told of the in famous conduct of Sheridan in Louis iana, of the drunken Judge Durell in the issuance and execution of the illicit midnight ordr; he spoke of the conduct of the President in his open violations of the provisions of pur great Magna Charter, thj Constitution of the United States, which is at the same .time the standard and the guar antee of our liberties ; of President Grant's tender of the Secretaryship of the Treasury to A. T. fit e wart, who was debarred by the law from accept ing it because of his being a large importer of goods and of the Presi dent's desire to have the law altered to suit his, individual caprice so that he could promote to a position of high honor and sacred trusts one who had made him presents of hPrses and lands. This, said the. speaker, was the beginning of Grantism, and from this moment public honor and public probity' sem to have been thrown to the wind, and offices of honor and profit- and trust were almost pub licly, bartered away. Woe to him who crossed -the plans of our Csosar. or who thought tha: the interests of a people were superior to'those of a party I Thus thought Cox. at one time Secretary of the In torior, and he was j dismissed because he was in favor of civil service re form, and Land Commissioner Wilson was removed from office ' because he did not decide some case in favor of the President's 1 brother-in-law. Col.! Waddell then alluded . to the San Do mingo job, ..which was characterized by the late: Charles Snmner upon the floor of the United, States Senate as a great kuklux outrage 'upon the nation by its President, for whioh speech Mr. Snmner. was deposed., from '.the Iiohott able position of Chairman of the Com mittee on Foreign Affairs, . position which he had filled with credit to him existence np to 1860 and. the expend i tares have been three and one-half times more since ' the advent of the Republicans into power than was ex pended during the entire seventy-two years of the nation's previous existence, There then is the reform of which'the Republicans boast. What does Holy writ say ? "lSy their truits snail ye know them;" by their fruits do we kuow them now, the fruits of au almost baukrupt nation, the honor of the country trailing in the dust and our administration a mark for the scorn and contunely and distrust of the civilized world. Ho who would trust them with another leave of power must needs expect to gather "grapes of thorns aud figs of thistles." The election of Hayes, said the speaker, would bring no relief to the people ; it would simply be an ex i . . uu.inge oi masters, lor me same cor rupt party woald then bo in power and the new lease would only prove a third term of Grantism. General Grant's first words on entering the Executive rnausion were. "Let ns have peace," and yet no sooner had the last session of Congress adjourned than the President issnei an order to Sheridan to hold his troopa well in hand for distribution at the polls. .uw uo anyj pcttco i inueeu, ana where is th peaca ? It is tha paaca whieh reigned in Warsaw. In referring to the action of the House of Representatives in its recent session, UoJ. Waddell stated that, be sides investigating the frauds in' the government, they had saved to the people $30,000,000 by cut ting down the appropriations made by the Republicans. This was an average saving of $102,000 to every Congressional district in the United states or 5 to every man in the country. He spoke of the bright prospects ahead for us both as a party and as a people and seems confident of his re-election by an increased majority, claiming that in this election he will distance his competitor to the tune of 2,000 majority for Waddell. After again thanking the assemblage, in a most graceful and earnest manner, for their kind attention and warm re ception the distinguished speaker re tired from the stand amid the cheers of the delighted people and the tri umphant strains of the Cornet Band. A GrandTime Ahead in tTliitcville. The Tilden and Vance Club of Whiteville Township will raise a flag in Whiteville on Saturday, October 14.

A'ex. McDonald, white, was run for secretary pro tern, and defeated, and Alford Atkinson elected. There were, present in convention forty delegates, nine of whom were white, the rest black or mulatto. A committee of twelve were appoint ed on permanent organization, four of whom were white. While the committee was gone out to make their report, eeches were in order. The attempt to give any idea of what transpired would be v;un; for r.o living mortal or mortals could put on paper, even the outlines of tho iu fernal hubbub. I cunuot tell one tenth or one one hundredth part of the whole truth, but all I tell bhall be the truth, and I make this report loua and in detail, thinking that it may do some good towards converting soine of the white Republicans in our coun ty, who have claims to decency. liill btith made the first speech. He said one term to the Legislature was enough for any ignorant man, aud while thus battling against John New ell, who by the way is a very respecta- Dlo mulatto, lie proposed to cive the nomination to Jobneon Green, the boy above referred to. He wanted a man able to "navigate" the office not a rogne nor a thinf. Ha did not want a man who would act "deficiently" and "gobble up the whole of Bladon conu- ty." Bill Stith ia a black, kmkv- headed, full-blooded African. Peter Smith came next. He is the brother-in-law of A. G. Thornton of Fayetteville,and a black, knook-kneed, semi giant. He didn't waat a man who didn't know whereto stop (hav ing reference to James Cashwll who is said to have stopped at Magnolia at a circus, when on his way to Raleigh, and thinking he had found the Legis lature.) He then charged Green, Ab bott s waiting boy, with being an im pudent fool, and with having on one occasion forced Alex. McDonald from the chair iu a convention, and taking it himself. John Burnett came next. He is a bright mulatto. He wanted a good and clean ticket, did not want the Re publicans any longer to take up tha scum and trash. He wanted a ticket against which nothing could be f aid on the stump, he wanted no more corrupt men, and if the Republicans must nave such his township would not respond at the ballot box. He said, "You may call me a Democrat but I do not care. I have worked hard for honesty for four years, and if you will not give it to us now, I will break through." John Newell came next. He threw back the charges of thief, rogue, corn ruption in the teeth of 8tith and Bur nett; accused Burnett with having stolen two mules, and said he could prove that both Stith and Burnett were thieves. Here the uproar became tumultuous, really deafening. Burnett oalled New ell a damn liar and damn son of a bitch. The uproar became so loud that it was impossible to gather any distinct sentence. At least forty ne groes were cursing and jowering at the top of their voices. Some stento rian voice declared the Convention adjourned, whereupon most of the delegates went down to cool off. After a few minutes they reassembled and Johnson Green and some others were put in nomination for permanent chairman. Green insisted that as his name was first put forward it should first be voted on. He put tho ques tion, and five or ten voted for him, while fifty voted against him. He de cided: "The I's appear to have it." The uproar became deafeuiDg. Green left the chair, but was called back. whereupon R. H. Fouville (a black but sensible negro) said to him that he did not "have sense enough to bell a buzzard from hell to back," that they had "acted as damn fools, and that he did not care a damn for ths party, and threatened to withdraw his (the Abbotteburg) delegation if it was in sisted on giving them such inferior men, and "if you will not do better, I am damned if I will vote for them." Bill Devaue, a strapping, black preacher, who had now taken the chair, made a long speech, when the following dialogue took place between him and Fonville: Fonville Your speech is out of order. Devane Do you recognize me as chairman ? Fonville Do you recognize me as a speaker ? Devane Yes. Fonville Then keep your tongue. Devane No, I don't recognize you. Fonville Then I don't recognize you. Alter much more to the name effect aud a, wonderful amount of wrangling, Alex. McDonald was elected perma nent chairman, whereupon Fonville withdrew his delegation, saying, " don't want Bill 8ikes and Alex. Mc Donald on our ticket, aud demanded that he and his fellow delegates be stricken from the roll." The rules of the Convention were read by the Chairman, while at least ten negrobs were on the floor -clamoring. At this iurction the Abbottsburg delegation got together and marched down stairs. The Convention proceeded to its elections. - First, for the House of Represen tatives : Alex. McDonald was elected. McDonald is a white man, and was indicted in Bladen Superior Conrt for perjury and. escaped eonviction by a variance between tue bill of indict ment and the proof. Tho bill charg ed that he was sworn upon the Holy Gospels, when in fact he was sworn with an uplifted hand, and who, as will be testified to by H. B. Everett and William Everett, both respecta ble men, received from them, while a magistrate,, a bribe not to bind them over to court npon a charge of Assault and Battery. . White men and honest colored men of Bladen can you vote for this man ? R. H. Fonville, before spoken of, an honest and intelligent negro, came forward and declared himself an in dependent candidate for the House of Representatives, saying that it was time for honesty to have some show ing among Republicans. NOMINATION FOP. SHE3TFF. Joseph C. Abboit told him to-day in the presence of Hon. Thos. D Mc Dowell, Capt. J. M. Wbie and Col. Jno. A McDoweii, that W. J. Sntton, our present Sheriff, said he would accept the nomination fjom the Radi cals, and if nominated that he would support the whole Republican ticket. And Abbott boasted that if Sutton went Republican, that he would carry one hundred Democrats with him., Mr. Sutton ' claimed to be a Demo-' crat, and it was because he assured the Democratic party, that if allowed to run independently, he would carry two hundred Radical votes that the Democratio nominating convention made no nomination for Sheriff, but tacitly endorsed him. On the first ballot, Sutton got nine votes and An drew J. Sbaw - seventeen ; eight scat teriog. On the second ballot Sntton got eight votes aud Shaw twenty-two; turee Knlteimg. Shaw was declared nominated. AndcewJ. Shaw was iu dieted in the Superior Court of Bla den for stealing a hog from a negro, but the jury after remaining out for twenty-four hours, returned a verdiet of "not guilty?' White men aud V m - ooioreamen ox JBiaaen win you give your votes for a man who has this record ? So far as we know or were able to find out, only oue single man who was put in nomination, by a white. E. Sin- gletary put in nomination for Sheriff. John W. Wallace, but Wallace did not receive a single vote. Mr. Frank Wilkeson was nominated for Coroner' by. acclamation, but he told us afterwards that he would n- t suflVr his name to be run on the ticket. Hugh C. McCallum wa nominated for County Treasurer. Mr. McCallum is a Democrat, au honest man, and we have no doubt will decline the honor (?) McDonald had left the chair and a big, black, buck negro now tilled it. James Cash well had received four votes for Treasurer (he is the Cash- well who justified on the bond of W. H. S krts, ex-Radicil Sheriff and da- rau'ter tor over $I3,UUU, lor o,UUU or $10,000, but out uf whom the Sheriff could not collect one cent), ard not liking this, he came forward to make a speech. He called himself the father of the Republican party in Bladen, and said it was a little thing he had asked, considering he had sacrificed his property, his character and his good name for the party. He no doubt told the truth his own word on this particular subject ought to I authority. But scarcely had Cash well commenced his speech, when he wa called to order by the chairman last above alluded to, whereupou the cuairmau got up Liimsair, amid ttie tumult, and proceeded to address the Convention, entreating them not to act like barbarians and wild animals. wheu some one (an old mulatto named ake Sutton) replied : ' Yars, go bead, Ciod d n you." The tumult subsided somewhat, Mc Donald took the chair, and ohn M. Benson was nominated for Registex of IJeeds. Mr. Benson m a clever and honest young man, aud he, with tho exception of Mr. Mc allum is the only name, so far, put forward which respectable men, white or black, ought to support. The committee camo together this morning at about 11 o'clock, and at 4:30 this evening they had elected the Register of Denis. After which they attempted to elect their County Com missioners. At 11 o'clock to-night they J ad not elected a single candi date, but had dropped them and were electing an Executive Committee. About the time I left the Convention McDonald left the chair, he said, be cause of physical derangement, but if he was not drunk, then pat me down for no judge ; but how could the man help being drunk? How any white man, brought up in a civilized coun 'ry, can associate with such a motley crew, be compelled to act with them, and fail to get drunk, is beyond my comprehension. Fellow-citizsns cf Bladen : I have tried to be faithful to my subject and I know I havs not overdrawn it; no pen, no picture could fully describe the pow-wow which has selected a ticket of Republicans aud now place it before you, asking your votes. How such men us Ca&tine Martin, U. W. Taroni, Pdit and others who, to-day, were delegates iu this Conven tion, can go home to their wives and children and ask their love and re spect after mingling with such associa tions, is more than any man in whote veins flows the Anglo-Saxon blood, in the name of decency ought to be able to tell. If you have one iota of manhood in you, I ask you to call to your mind this fact: that only one white man made an attempt to raise his voice in this Convention to-day, and that he was called dowu by Bill Devane, an ignorant negro; that he (Bill Uevane) might dictate to you the course you should pursue iu managing a govern ment which belongs to you. Do you know that these very asso ciates which you have chosen in poli ties look upon you as "scum and trash ?" If you do nut, you have only to call to mind what Burastt said to you in his speech, and the ignoble part played by you in the Convention. And can you support, as honest men, and with an approving conscience, luen whose records are stained by in dictments for perjury and larceny ? At this writing, 1 o'clock p. m., Oc tober 1st, the Convention has adjourn ed, having nominated f r county com missioners W. D. Pridgeu, white, Mil ton Jones, colored, J. S. Cain, white, William Devane, colored, aud W. A. Atkinson, white. After calling over these names, what more can honest men desire, as au ar gument why they should not be voted lor ? And poor duped aud enslaved ne gro, you have had the Conventions all your own way, you have had jowered and clamored sometimes twenty of you at a time.you have curbed and fumed and made threats, but your shrewd white fr;ends have given you what ? Two county commissioners. Think of this, what did you get, two county commissioners. And these not your choice, but packed upon you by Ab bott, Eldridge, Sikes and others and who the more sensible among you, such as James Daniel, Stith, Fonville, cannot subscribe to. During the sitting of the Conven tion, one of the delegates, Paton Wil Hams colored,, was arrested, tried and committed on a charge of stealing a bolt of cloth from the store of Messrs. Rinaldi & Co. Paton Williams only last Juue re turned to Bladen from the oeuiteu -tiary, having served a term of threo years for stealing a pair of boots from Mr. J. H. Smith. Such is one of the delegates who have put forward a ticket and now ask honest men to vote for them. Yours, &c, ErsmoN. Elizibethtown. N. C. For the Journal.

Ac. . -i n jour aueoiai correspondent was at the joint discussion at Lumberton between Gov. V auoe aud Judfre Setti.i T I a . . ' j. leave it to mm to give you an ao w i luni -jioriiiips um oest one that has yet takeu place in the State as it was inspired by tho largest crowd tliat have yet assembled iu tho State since their cumo;ucrn bei?ar.. Hip w -j - lowest estimate being 6,000. Gov. Vauoe covered himself ad over with glory, and lefl an enthnsiaam in the county that will not slacken until election day, and will bring to the polls men who in years have nok voted The impression he made was nevpr ex celled and ouly partially paialltled in Henry Clay's palmy days. The object of this communication is to tell you what Gen. J. M. Leach did in Robeson county, and I only can give you a brief synopsis at that. On the 23d he spoke to a large aud enthusiastic crowd at Shoe Heel, aud after discussing the political issues for two hours and a half the crowd still desired him to go on, but having no one to meet him on the other side, he preferred saving himself for Lumber ton, on the 26th, where he hoped he would have the pleasure of meeting the redoubtable Norment and give him such a sledge-hammer demolishing as would unfit him to enter the campaign again. On Monday Gen. Leach arrived at T 1 L , , . uuuiuenou ana soon naa an arrange ment with JNorment for a joint discus sion. I have heard the Gyuoral re peatedly. I have known him person ally for years, but must confess, that with all my knowledge of him, L was amazed at his masterly and grand effort, occuping lj hours. Norment replied at the same length in the most voiacious bombaitic manner it has ever been my misfortune to listen to. Duriug Nor mont'a speech the train arrived with Vance aud Settle, and the discussion was stopped for awhile. After the enthusiasm of the immense crowd had subs ded over Zeb Vance's arrival, the discussion continued and Leach had the reply. I shall not attempt au analysis or synopsis of his remarks. It has been my good fortune to have heard some of the best stumD orators in the United States. I heard John M. Morehead make his great speech as President of the Convention iu Philadelphia in 1848 that nominated Uen. Taylor for the Piesidencv. I have listened at Daniel Webster in the United States Senate. I have heard Bragg aud John A. Gilmer, John Kerr and David S. Reid, Pettigrew of South Carolina, Henry A. Wise of Vir ginia; I have listened for four hours to Wendell Phillips of Massachusetts and been enthralled at the feet of Vanct) the greatest, best man of all. wen, jeach then commenced, aud 1 cannot or will not attempt to tell you wnat ne said. 1 can only tell you something of the effect produced. For tunately he was fortided with Nors ment's record, and he condeused in a thirty minutes' speech more eloquent invective, more logical sarcasm, more withering denunciation than I have ever heard. The largo crowd were swayed and controlled as I never saw before, and Normeut's worst enemies sympathized with him. For once his sensibilities were reached, although coated in a rhinoceros hide. For once ho showed his hack feathers, and squirmed under the scalpel that Leach was applying with scientific hand to his effrontery and impudence, and to day in Robeson county (Jen. Jjeach has done more for the Conservative party than any other man iu North Carolina save one Z. B. Vance. "God bless him" is the cry of the old and young. Heaven apeed him on his visit to South Carolina to give that gallant, noble son of that dowu-tro lden State, Hampton, a lift, and may Providence smile on his efforts there as here is the true prayer of every one who heard him ou the 25th at Lumberton.
