The Republicans of Raleigh will organ ize a Central Campaign Club for the city and county at the Court House next Friday night. The formation of this club will be the inauguration of the campaign by thm Republicans in Wake county. There will be a meeting of the Republi cans of the Seeond Ward at the hall above the Second Baptist Church on Wednesday evening the 15th inst., at 8 o'clock for the purpose of organizing a Garfield, Buxton and Bledsoe Club. This meeting is called by Stewart Ellison, Esq. We have received a communication from J. W. Thome, Esq , of Warren county, in which he suggests a plan for i amoving the difficulties that now weaken and divide the Republicans ot Warren and uniting the party. While the plan, if adopted, migh I have the desired effect, still as it would conflict with our plan of party organization the Republican must decline its endorse ment and publication. - Republican Primaries. The prima ries for the election of delegates to the County Convention will beheld throughout Wake county on Saturday, 11th inst., those in the precincts of Raleigh township taking place at half pa3t seven o'clock at night. In addition to delegates and alternates, precinct executive committees will be ap pointed. These committeemen will meet in Raleigh on Monday next 13th, to elect a County Executive Committee. Mark's Creek. This township was en thusiastically aroused on Monday last iu an educational point of view. The occasion was the closing exercises of a very large school, taught by Messrs. F F. Giles and Robert Hall. There was a big turn out on the part of ihe patrons and friends of the school, and many ladies and gentlemen from distant parts of the township. Eve rything passed eft most pleasantly. The ladies were good looking and extremely so ciable; the gentlemen were gallant, and the scholars were wide awake and interesting. We were invited to speak and feeling, somewhat inspired by the enlivening scene before us, we responded in remarks, which we thought pertinent to the occasion. Upon the whole this school exhibited marks of improvement quite in advance we think of other schools which we have had the privilege of visiting outside Raleigh. Pres ents were awarded to the advanced schol ars of each class. They were made by Mr. R. E. McCauley in the most pleasant and appropriate language. We can say with confidence that the colored people in this seetion are advancing educationally and socially. The Observer ot this city is growing alarmed at the favorable outlook for Major Bledsoe in this District. So great is its trepidation that for three whole days it has failed to administer to the public its wonted quantum of Credit Mobilier and De Golyer Garfield hash, and has devoted itself edi torially to the task of demolishing Major Bledsoe. Failing to find anything in the Major's record by which it might hope to alienate from him the votes of the whites, the Observer has grown desperate and now seeks to predudice the colored people against our candidate by telling them that before the war Major Bledsoe tried to have a law passed classifying them all as prop erty and refusing them recognition as per sons. This may be true. The Observer professes to quote from Major Bledsoe's speech. In behalf of the colored people, who propose to vote for the Major and help elect him to Congress, we have bnt few words to say by way of justification. Major Bledsoe has outlived the institution of slavery. He has outlived secession and the war against the Union. He is con vinced now that slavery was a crime, that secession was unconstitutional, and that rebellion was treason. If the Observer's charge be true, then Major Bledsoe is doubly entitled to credit and the full confi dence of the colored people. His present position as a pronpunced Republican and the friend of the negro shows that he has been able to divest his mind of his former prejudices and false opinions and to view aright the policy which should characterize the Government, State and Nional, in all the relations existing betweej?$nd those subject to it. The difference between Major Bledsoe and his accusers is simply this : Major Bledsoe has accepted the re sults of the war in good faith and is willing to concede to the colored man every right to which he himself is entitled. His oppo nents, on the c ntrary, while theoretical ly accepting the situation would practically nullify the reconstruction acts by depriving the negro of his rights and reducing him to the condition of a serf. Some time ago in an article on ''Democratic Misrule and Incapacity we stated the fact that some of the best laws now enjoyed' by the people of North Carolina emanated from the Republican minority In the Legislature during the last ten years of Democratic ascendancy, and that the Republican party alone was enti tled to whatever credit was due by reason of their enactment. One of the most important measures passed by the last Legislature was an act, "To give to b-contractors laborers and material men a lien for their just dues." Pre vious to the enactment of this - law the pr inci pal contractor was allowed to secure himself by a lien in building and improvements upon real estate while those whom he employed to perform the labor, or a party to whom he sub ( let the contract could obtain no security what ever for prompt and honest payment. Now the sub-contractor, the laborer and the material man are protected in their interests equally with the principal in the contract. . This just and highly beneficial law was introduced as a bill in the last Legislature by Hon. Stewart Ellison and duly passed. Mr. Ellison has been one of the most useful men who has served in the Legislature since the war. The colored people particularly are indebted to him in an eminent degree for such legislation as has been promotive of their interests. ' We shall touch upon the valuable services of this able and in fluential colored man more at length hereafter. - . political waifs. "Don't go for Garfield ; he voted for nig gers rights." We advise those to keep quiet who voted for Greeley. "I shall not repreneut any party nor in dividuals, but the people and the people's interest," says Judge Buxton. If inconsistency keeps any one' from get ting into Heaven, not a single Democrat will be saved. Poor, unhappy creatures, farewell. ' See F. T. Thomas' letter upon his visit to the colored insane asylum, and find how much courtesy Democratic authorities tdiow colored piople. Governor Jaivi., in his digusing use of slang and misrepresentation, doesn't take "worth a cent" with the respectable gentle men of his own party. ' Democrats who are so audacious as to re flect uponthe ignorance of the negroes, should first answer who is responsible for their ignorance, and take a back seat. The way be Democratic speakers array the white people against the Republican party (and especially the negroes) is by tell' ing them that Gai field voted to nil r the "nigger" with their children, wives aDd daughters.: That comes with bad grace from men whose happiness of life consists in mixing with "niggerrv?

To the Editor of The Republican: The largest and most enthusiastic Conven tion ever held in Northampton, assembled here last Saturday the 4th, to make suitable county nominations. r The Court House was crowded with Repubs licans and delegates from all portions of the county, duly accredited, representing the whole eight precincts of the county. The enthusiasm manifested during the opening of the Conven tion was marvelous and unprecedented. Eve-' rybody was fully alive to the importance of i - f-i! t - Jas. W. Newsoin, Chairman of the County Republican Executive Committee, called the Convention to order promptly at 12 o'clock M;, after which he proceeded to the appointment of Committees on Credentials, consisting of one from every Township and precinct. j - The Committees on Credentials retired and shortly afterward returned arid reported every Township duly represented with delegates hold ing properly accredited certificates 'of , "election, ofter which each aspirant was allowed ten min utes in which to address the Convention. ; The Convention next proceeded to the nomi nation of county officers, to be voted for in the coming election, with the following result : For House of Representatives, P. F. Haily. For Sheriff, J as. W. Newsom,1 by acclamation. For Register of Deeds, H. R. Deloatch.2 ; i For Treasurer, Jas. W. Copeland. ;.' r ' For Coroner, Jno. R. Drake. i ; For Surveyor, Elijah W.

As we go to press we glance over the latest returns from the election held in Vermont on. the 7th inst. The Republicans have achieved a glorious victory, carrying the State by 28,000 or 29,000 majority, electing all their candidates for Congress, and almost extinguishing Demo cratic representation in the Legislature. Our gain is between 4,000 and 5,000 over the vote of 1876.
