garments furnished them by nature
In 1880, the wolves assembled in the
halls of Congress clothed in the ha
biliments of the sheep. . The object
is the same as that sought in 1832,
when Old' Hickory, by the grace
of God and the ; .votes of the
people, was President of these Uni ted
States that is, the nulification and
overthrow of laws wlich have been de
clared constitutional by the highest
court known to the law of the land,
and which are obnoxious to the Dem
ocratic party because the laws in
question when exercised and enforced
prevent Democratic frauds and secure
free voting and a fair crunt. This
modern attempts to nullify the laws is
simply an; attack upon free suffrage
and honest counting in Federal elec"
tions. It is a declaration that the
Democratic party expects to ' triumph
by fraud and is therefore in f ivor of
nullifying such laws as will not have
the effect when "executed to change
minorities into mHj'orities. Partisfins
who care more for their own persona!
aggrandizement than for their country
may approve buch revolutionary meas
ures aas the proposed nullification by
the present Democratic Congress, the
Southern .Democrats en. masse may
approve, as some did . in 1832 r but
the great mass of people in the North
wao represent the virtue,' intelligence
and wealth; of that portion of Ameri
ca, will not sustain a party that at-
tempts to nullify laws which have
ueunyiwiuumjcu xa uuiravifcutiuijai aim
binding upon Congress and the peo
ple. If, laws can , be rendered nulli
ties by such non -action by the law
making power the functions and pre
rogatives of the President as a part of
the law-making power . is at an end.
Following out the principle the Con
gress should refuse to make appropri
ations to pay any of the Sujreme
Court J udges except Field and Clif
ford, .who dissented from the opinion
of a majority, of the court in the cases
wherein the law was held to be con
stitutipnal.1 It might be well enough
in the same line to; stop the salary of
rne-jr resident because he vetoed the
bill last year proposing to repeal the
law.; s The Republicans accept the
issue thus made up now let the peo
ple speak.
.The card of Mr. J.E. B ruce. which
appears elsewhere, is published as a
matter personal to the writer. It is
pot intended by such publication to
provoke or enter into a personal con
troversy with either . of the parties
concerned. Further communications
,of this'character. will not be published.
Ourireaders are not concerned about
such matters, and we cannot fill our
columns with matter in which they
are not interested, and can do them
no good.

Mr. Editor : Being present at the

Ladies have always had a very at

if; it was our Allwise Creator's , pre
rogative, that they should -exert their
influence. .

immoral, she would like to have all

it is not, so with man: if he ia immoral
he would have woman moral: if he is
a drunkard he would nat. have his
wife so, and I think that'the ladies of
tms and all otiier cities and commu
nities ought to organize 1 themselves
into societies for the nnrnoae of moral
and literary improvements; copy the
origut ana magnanimous example ot
Hesperians . and similar societies that
is commend ible, because we live in
an age of light and knowledge, an
age in which science and the arts
are marching onward with gigantic
strides. 'We live in a land of light

Heaven beam on us with uncommon

Editor Republican : Permit me to
say a few words in your columns.
Fellow-Citizens : We are enter
ing upon a great political contest,
perhaps such as never has been in the
History oi . our country. Jivery man
must play his part in it. This is not
the time to be disloyal and hold
to perndous men. We, the colored
voters, must withdraw our sWpport
from those who care nothing for party
unity and the success of our govern
ment. We have been political tools
long enough ; let us show our patriot
ism. We should demand representa
tion ; wc have , heretofore not de
manded anything,', and nothing lias
been given to us. " So long as we-are
satisfied with being hewers of wood
and drawers of water, that will be our
share. We claim that colored men
should be in office from the highest to
to tne. lowest, wherever toundi com
petent. Nominate a colored man for
any prominent position, and he is in
competent ; they howl we are draw-
. . . t . i i .... '.
ing uie coior line ; tlie negroes are
not willing to allow us any chance
where they have a maioritv. Ex
amine the vote in every ctnnty ,iii the
State where a Republican is elected by
a white vote, and he is a white man.
llie line is readily drawn, and we
have gently submitted to it. We have
voted tor men in our ranks claiming
to be Itepublicans. who. if thrown
into a hole of water, you might hear
wiggle half a mile, they have so much
democracy about them. We have
been waiting like a dog standing at
his master's door, ' for crumbs and
bones, for seventeen years. We are
the only ones who are shot down at
the polls, and therefore we demand
some of the "loaves and fishes" iir
this contest. The power given us by
the Constitution in 1868, has been

by the people, would not hold an
office until sunset. You are not per
nutted to elect your county cum mis
sion ers, who select the jurors, by
whom you are to be tried. You liave
no more right to say who shall hanflle
your county mouey than a man in
Kichmond county. 1 hese othce-hold-
ers are selected br men who care noth
ing for your wishes and know nothing
of your choice. We have not a col
ored magistrate m the county. It
cannot be on account of disqnalifica
tion. There are colored men more
qualified than some of the whites.
who are our present lncnuiDenis.
There are colored men competent to
fill these positions, and we , demand
representation on all the 'charitable
institutions, wherever our' interest is
involved. Let. us nominate men who
have the ability and integrity. and au
dacity to represent us men in whom
we can confide. And then see that
every man goes to the polls and votes.
Give us justice. Thus is all wo ask.
Jiat justitia ruat eoalum.

Cabarrus County, N. C,
" ' " March 2d, 1880.
To the Editor of the Republican :
Permit me to express a few word
through the columns of your valuable
paper. It seems as if the Kepubucans ot
Cabarrus and Stanly comities are at
stand-point. Upon the question of Pre
sident and Vice of the United states.
And; the question must be decided by
the Republican Convention that meets
at Chicago on June 2d, 1880, we see the
names of the Hon. John Sherman and
General Grant spoken of in your paper
either, of the names will meet the ap
provai of the colored Republican of Ca
barrus and Stanly counties, as we are
indebted to the Republican party for the
rights that we now enjov. All we de
sire is a man at the head of the Govern
ment that will see that every man be he
white or. colored shall be protected b
the Laws of the Land as we have live
this long without the mule and 40 acres,
i i x : . r ? 1 ' . .
wnicn our lemocrauc inenas say we
expected, though we never did, we ex
pect to continue voting the Republican
ticket, there will soon be a meeting of
the leading Republicans to express their
sentiments in our county.
X Respectfully, Amos Melciier.
