For the Standard.
It is now several weeks since Pope Ananias
Pell promulgated his non intercourse bull,
and the people of the State have been wait
ing, listening and looking for some protest
againstits outrageous assumptions denying
tin; right of tins Sentinel to speak for or
bind the Conservative party to such a plan
of persecution social outlawing and busi
ness non-intercourse, but not one word that
we know ol, has been uttered in reprobation.
The kindred papers are silent the mer
chants and mechanics of that party in our
cities have not denounced this usurpation of
authority. " Silence gives consent," it is
said, and it remains for the Republicans to
understand now precisely what is the atti
tude of the Democratic-Conservative-Rebel
party towards them, and forthwith prepare
to meet the issue with all the resources and
ability at their command. Republicans now
have no alternative. It is not allowed them
to cease from partisan bitterness. They
cannot live in peace while they cultivate
Union and quiet. They must act n the de
fensive, and that not as politicians but as
men, as citizens and as Christians. Under
these circumstances, it is important for the
friends ot the Union for Republicans to
act advisedly and in concert all over the
State, and indc-d, all over the Union. It
is really a question now not of politics only,
but of actual existence. The rallying cry is
now one of extirpation from the soil of our
State and the struggle is for life and all that
makes life valuable to freemen. But let us
recall the terms of Pell's edict. "We
must taboo and ignore all apostates to their
color and kindred. We must give the pre
ference in all our business transactions to
merchants, traders, mechanics and laborers
who stood by their race and friends in the
late struggle." The italics are ours, and we
see only one difficulty in this pretty scheme
ot devilism. It will be no trouble to Rev.
Pell to distinguish his friends by race and
color, but when he gets to the " kindred"
he will be "in a peck of trouble." A very
large majority of the " kindred" of his
friends are not of his color, and are not
Rebels. Surely, Rev. Editor of the Sentinel,
that was a most unfortunate word. How
could you so far forget yourself as to use
that word "kindred" when you knew that
the " we" on whom you called to ignore and
taboo, would thus be compelled to outlaw
and taboo their own sous, grandsons, halt
brothers, nephews and cousins, as another
color and mixed race, but not by Hie inexor
able law of God, "iirt'mZ." nevertheless?
It is wicked exceedingly wicked, parson
Pell, thus to array and embitter " kindred"
ot the same blood against each other. Yet
you have done it in your unnatural edict.
But white Republicans have not this peculiar
misceganative relationship to impede their
action in the duty now before them. And
the colored Republicans will be faithful to
that " race" of " color," of their kindred"
that never oppressed and degraded them by
their cruelty and lusts.
1. Then this is not a political contest.
Parson Pell has just been defeated by 20.000
Republican majority and would wage for a
while another war. But Republicans, be
sure to keep up your organization. Do not
abate in vigilance.
2. This is not a contest of arms. Parson
Pell has a wholesome dread of Yankee mus
kets, and does not now seek to provoke Re
publicans to a fight of this kind, but Re
publicans should not trust the men who
having once proven traitors still persist to
oppose the United States government. It is
well to be ready, and if we should ever
again sleep, let it be on our arms. Do not
forget Fort Pillow nor Andersonville.
3. It is not a war for patronage. That is
gone, Parson Pell knows. But Republicans,
we nave the assurance ot our noble chief in
his late grand Editorial, that the patronage
of this State shall be bestowed to the ad
vantage ot the Republican laborer and Re
publican interests. It must reward the
friends of the Union, preserve liberty, fee'
tne poor and lead the State back to-cros
ltv and the honest adminstration of it af
fairs. Surely the victorious Republican f
party will see to it tnat ttie men, white or
black, who were true to themselves, their
country and freedom shall not suffer from
4. But it is a war on business ! You shad
not buy of or sell to Republicans. You
6hall not employ or reward Republican la
borers. This is the war. Republicans, we
must accept it. In Wilmington, Newbern,
Beaufort, Washington, Fayetteville, Raleigh.
Greensboro', Salisbury and Charlotte All
over the State this is our doom. It is inten
ded to ruin ns in our businesH, to starve us
and our families, but it is a game two can
play at. By all that we hold dear, by all
the pledges of freemen let us stand by each
other. This is the hour of our trial. This
bitter and disappointed yell from doomed
traitors cannot affect the hearts of the 100,
000 Republican voters of North-Carolina ;
we must now from this day, and henceforth
"give the preference in all our business
transactions to merchants, traders, mechan
ics and laborers," who stood by the old flag
and the party of the Union. Where we have
no merchants, let us invite Republican men
to settle among us while we pledge them our
" preference." Let us encourage only Re
publican mechanics, though we have to im
port them or go miles for our work. Be
sure to employ only laborers that never
flinched. It is the bun of our enemies, let
us now live under it. Buy not sell not
borrow not lend not rent not labor not
of a political opponent. This is the order,
and we must now meet it in the determined
strength of those who are right, and trust in
the God of justice. It is our policy to in
vite capital, to encourage manufactures, to
press forward our Railroads, to multiply de
mands for labor in every section of the State.
5. This is a social ban I For this, the
honest and pure yeomanry of North-Carolina
care not a jot. The Republicans will
soon create their own society ; official posi
tion and capital will not need mourn for
want of the society of effete aristocrats.
The occasional glimpses the Republicans
get of it now when the curtain is lifted from
its secrets by the late bondsmen, does not
present it in a view that makes it inviting,
or that will cause any regrets on account of
the social ban by the innocent and the pure
in the Republican ranks. Our information
is that the bull of Bro. Pell is already being
carried into effect.
It is a trying ordeal, and let the leaders of
the Republican party send forth the watch
word and prove themselves equal to the trial
thrust upon us. Begin, in Raleigh ; under
the eye of the Sentinel. Shun Rebel-Conser-vative
merchants, traders, mechanics and
laborers." Inaugurate it in all our towns
and cities, and let the farmers of the country
look to it that their money and barter goes
into proper hands. Republican State officers !
Republican members of the General Assem
bly, we look to you. Republicans can la-
( r lllcy ave even now learned denial,
' and as soon as our enemies must go to work
themselves they will capitulate.
Let me invite every true Republican to re
read the editorial on this matter in the
Standard of May 5th. It is a noble produc
tion. Every Republican should see or hear
it. Let it be the Republican chart for the
conflict before us. RADICAL.

When Charles V, of Germany, being de
feated in his expectations, resigned his
throne, betook himself to the monastery of
... ... 1 A 1 1 1
St. Yuste, it is said nc uevoteu nis leisure
to making clocks, a rather unkingly busi
ness, but doubtless, more profitable and ful
ly as nlcasant as his tourneys with the Re
formers. In imitation may be of this illus
trious Monarch, one of the aspirants tor
Congressional honors (he, ot the 5th District)
who was so ianobly defeated by friend Lash,
has also turned in disgust from politics that
have termed so unsavory to the elucida
tion of the phenomena of nature, or at
least, their study. Having on tue stump
and in "my paper" cleared himself of the
accumulated bitterness and vulgarity of
years, doubtless, he is able to give himself
with considerable zest to natures out
civim's. It is some solace, too, to see that
nature and mother earth change as well as
the people of Guilford and the 5th Con
gressional District of North-Carolina. Then,
too, it is a pleasure to forget that when he
voieu ior aim unvoumuw uuhii.ii o ""-x"""!
lie was beaten in Guilford and in the State.
That when he voted against, and canvassed
against, and vilified Holden, he was elected
by 20,000 majority in the State, and carried
the County ol Guilford also. Even clock
making, or the study of lusus natural it' it
only served to cause torgettulness, would 'be
welcomed by the chivalous knight of old
Guilford, for doubtless in the lucid moments
that followed on the stunning news of rebel
defeat-in the State, District and County,
that also engulfed himself, he remembered
that he. i martyr for the Union, owed his
nomination to his enemies his defeat to his
friends ; that he owed his nomination to
those who knew he would be defeated; who
are still rebels at heart, and who have no
sympathy with him in defeat. Well, to ban
ish these gleams of loyal consciousness, he
devotes himself to the elucidation of some
phenomena, communicated to him by the
most learned and intelligent man he ever
conversed with, and who by the way, is or
was a Superior Court Judge. Should any
stranger unfortunately be found on the
streets of Greensboro', he may expect to be
" buttonholed " by the departed candidates
and compelled to listen to his story of the
overthrow ot freedom by Congress, and
then to the marvelous freaks of nature
during the late earthquakes in the West
Indies, especially, the submerging of St.
Thomas ; and as'it may be news to your
readers, I shall, in a few words, give it to
them, for inasmuch as it has to do with the
freedom and labor of our couutry, it cannot
help but interest. Then, besides, I have not
noticed that any of our scientific papers
speak of it, and so the Standard may have
the honor of bringing it Lefore the scientific
world. It appears that these shocks that so
much deranged Secretary Seward's plans for
St. Thomas have seriously affected "tie Guff
Stre'i?n." It has been diverted from its place
and thrown 100 miles nearer our shore ; this
may puzzle some persons who remember
that it teas only 24 miles off Cape Hatteras.
Besides this remarkable displacement of the
stream, its motion has, it is sai J, also been
accelerated five times, which as any one
knows who is acquainted with the " mighty
deep," must cause considerable commotion
among the whales, as well as steamboats
and little fishes, for it is an ascertained fact,
that the ante helium rates of the stream was
five miles along our coast. Five times five and
twenty-five. Pretty good speed, is it not
Master Jack Tar ?
These are the phenomenal facts, and now
for the deduction :
1. This displacement and acceleration
are prophetic or admonitory, and we should
see that Congress has thrown the ship ot
State 100 mites nearer the shore of despot
ism, and that its speed toward the well
engulfment 'f liberty.
2. That these changes bringing a current
of warm water so much nearer our shore is
,affecting our climate, and is the cause of so
much cold, wet, weather this spring, and will
permanently change our climate so that it
will be so much colder that even in Florida
white men can labor in the field.
8. The last is a theologico-scientific de
duction. Since Abraham Lincoln, by his
emancipation proclamation, freed the black
men from the Florida miasmi. Divine prov
idence emancipates the Gulf-Stream, and lo !
the miasmi is gone cool breezes follow, and
the white rebel can hoe cane and pick cot
ton. A FRIEND OF SCIENCE.

TITE LATE ELECTION THE CONSTITUTION
RATIFIED BY 5,000 MAJORITY REPUBLI
CAN STATE TICKET ELECTED A TWO
THIRDS MAJORITY IN THE LEGISLATURE.
Jacksonville, Fla., May 11, 1868.
Returns from all the heavy counf'cs are
now in, and the remaining counties to be
heard from will give, altogether, but a com
paratively small vote. Twenty-one coun
ties, including all those having a majority
of colored voters, give a majority of 5,110
votes for the constitution. Harrison Reed,
the Republican" candidate for Governor,
runs ahead of the constitution in some coun
ties, and in others behind. The majorities
for the State ticket and for the constitution
differ but slightly. Nearly all the white
counties have gone strongly against the con
stitution, except where the southern loyal
(white) men held the majority. The rebel
vote is the largest ever polled iu this State,
and the determination to defeat the ratifica
tion has been supported by a vigorous organ
ization all over the State. The Richards
and Billings ticket, (against the constitu
tion,) headed by Walker for Governor and
Billings for Congress, received 2,300 votes
in the State. In Leon county, the largest in
the State and the stronghold of both Scott,
the Democratic candidate for Governor, and
Billings, the constitution and Reed ticket
received 1,100 votes, all colored but about
thirty, Scott received only 457 votes, and the
Billings ticket 1,400.
The Republicans have secured a two
thirds majority of the Senate, and it is
thought the same in the Assembly. Returns
thus tar give the Republicans 33 of the 53
members of the Assembly, including six of
the Billings candidates. The returns of the
west coast counties are expected to. add four
more to this number.
The Republicans are jubilant all over the
State, and the rebels who conceded the elec
tion of the Republican ticket and the con
stitution are wofully disappointed in not se
curing the Legislature, for which they have
made a determined and olstinate struggle
in every county. Colonel Charles M Hamil
ton, formerly of Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania,
is the member elect to Congres.
The Bankrupt Law. It may not be
known to some of our readers that what is
called the fifty-per cent clause of this act
takes effect on the 1st of June next; that
after that date no one can take the benefit
of the act whose estate will not pay fifty per
cent to his creditors. The adjournment of
Congress and the present state of the im
peachment question renders it less likely
that any extension of this time will be given
by Congress. It therefore becomes those
who intend to petition for adjudication of
bankruptcy for themselves or against others,
to apply to the court in session. Wash.
