which he suggests a plan for i amoving the

have the desired effect, still as it would
conflict with our plan of party organization
the Republican must decline its endorse

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
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.

"I shall not repreneut any party nor in

If inconsistency keeps any one' from get

farewell. '

Democrats who are so audacious as to re

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'

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

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

ofter which each aspirant was allowed ten min

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.
