BASSETT. Jan. 8th, 1875. .6m. THE Friday, May 7, 1375 From the N. C. Presbyterian. Oranga Presbytery at Tarboro. Bro. De Veaux: I presume it will be pleasant to your many readers to bear of the doings of Orange Press bytery at its recent session in Tar boro'. On Wednesday, the 21st inst., 7 1 2 P. M., Presbytery was called to order by the retiring Mod erator, the Rev. Jacob Doll, who preached the opening sermon from the text ; 'Touch not the unclean thing.' The Rev Mr Fitzgerald, of IJillsboro', ws elected Modera tor: and Rev L C Yass and Mr J E Womack, temporary clerks. There were present during the meet ing 20 ministers and 17 rulinjr-eK ders-an unusualy full attendance. Jas L Curnie aud E F Pritchett were licensed as probationers. The latter was granted permission to labor without the bounds of the Presbytery ; and the former recei ved a call from Bethlehem churh as Pastor, and from Fairfield as Su. ted Supply, which will be conaid ered by hiin. The General Assem bly's plan of Systematic Becevol euce failed to receive the approba tion of Presbytery. The consider tion of the plan of assessments for the Assombly s contingent fund was postpond. Rev Wm A Shaw M D was received from the Presbytery of Brazos, Texas. Several members aspired to go as Commissioners to St Louis but only Rev P T Penick was elected, with Rev J M Atkin son as alternate, and Elder Alex McPheeters, with J 1 Gumming as aternate. VJwing to tne considerable expense of tho trip, and the low state of the treasury. Presbvterv J J concluded to send only two, instead of the four to which we are entitled. Rev J W Primrose aud $ev W G Baird wera re.(folpcte.d, Evangelist to the lias.tern and Western Fields respectively. An adjourned mee ting will be held in Greensboro', on the 13th of May to consider the resignation of Rev J M Atkinson, of Raleigh, and the congregation will be cited to appear. A resolus tion of sympathy with the Pitsboro church in view of the material dam age done their house of worship by me siorm ot March utn, was pas sea, togetner witn a recomenaation , - . i to tue cnurcnes to renuer pecuniary .

J . - I The thanks of Presbytery word f rmrlororl tho lotl-..Io ihitrr h I in Pittsboro' for their cordial and ..wv. v...-wv, v'" christian courtesy in offeing the use of their building to our brethcren. Mebaneville was chosen as the place, and October 8th, 1875, as the time of the next regular meeting of Tresbytery. The Evangelist of the eastern held was directed to make inquiry and if the way Bhould be open, to organize a church at La Granr.e This sesion of Presbytery was one of unusual interest. Never before did it meet in Tarboro', Delegates and visitors expressed themselves in unr measured terras as delighted with the place, the house of worship and the "ooery oi n nooie oia common cordial welcome extended them by wealth. Aud this is the feast to the cb arch and the citizens generally, which Radicalism yhi has re- A generous hospitality deserved and received the thanks of fclr. The church building Vaa pronounced a perfect gem. Measures were adopted to relieve the church of debt incurred in its erection, for it was unanimously felt to be u matter of prime impotance that this enterprise should be fostered. The Rev. Mr. Allison now serving as stated supply with great acceptance, and to whom will soon be given a call to the Pastorate, was directed by Presbytery to assist the Evangelist at Rocky Mount and Wilson that with thft Rid of theao two noints h mio-ht h rotmnarl in the, r nirl Thrt'PrAVjhv. tery is iusf beginning: to reap the . . -w j fruits of evaneelistio enterprise, and to appreciate the extent ot its wide domain liocty Mounr, wnere at tne outset we were unknown, nas now seven communicants and in conjunc tion with W llson is able to aid mate rially in support of the work in Tar boro'.

P. H. Dalton, the Pastor of the church in Washington, visited the tilace monthly. At that time there j were Oily six or seven communicants For three years 13ro Dalton preached faithfiillv and Rcnfiniahlv. when ha was eucseeded by Rev. . A. Staniield, ; the first .Lvangelisr. ' liro.'otanheld great usefuleess was abridged by growing: feebleness of health which compelled him to resign at the expira tion of one year. The present Evan gelist succeeded him and found ten communicants in the place. These with great spirit and self-denial pros ecuted the work and built their rro- sent neat and taseful church edifice. Af tar two and 'a half yeata' service, the bmming was dedicated in Febru ary 1874, and the ohurch organized with twenty members. Soon after Rev. T. J. Allison, licentiate of Con cord Presbytery, accepted a call as stated supply and gave the church the greater part of his time. Though the church expects to dismiss six its valuable members, it receives of accession of eight. On last sabbath one was received by letter and ' on confession,' of faith. Three these were baptized. The service was impressive and solmn, and wit- nessed by an overflowing congregan tion. Space will not suffer me to say more than that all the services were largely attended by interestad audi ences. A bright prospect opens be fore the Tarboro' church. J. W. P. "The Color Line." About the coolest thing we have seen lately is an article in the New bern Times, with the above caption. It assails the Advance, because we appeal to the white men to elect Democrats to the State Convention to revise the conotitution. It charges us with drawing the 'Color Line' and reviving an issue between the races. It calls this fanaticism, that will bring ruin and misery to the contry. And all this we find in tho organ of the Radical party, whose life blood is found in its ap peals to the prejudices of the ignor ant negroes and the adhesive plaster of the Union League oath, which was introduced by the editor ef the Times and his allies to bind the negro element together as a foot bail for political capital. The editor of the Times, whose circulation is extensive among the negroes in this District, and over whom it exerts a powerful influence, presumes largely upon the ignor ance of its readers, when it pro mulgates such absurd and inconsis tent allegations in the very face of stubborn facts, which are patent to every intelligent observer. To talk about tho Democratic party drawing the line of color, when the very first act of the Radi oal leaders was to poison the mind3 of the negroes against the white men of the South, and to band them together in solid phalanx and to lead them to the polls to be voted like a flock of sheep ! To talk about 'ruin and misery to one of the fairest sections of God's earth !' when the very second act of Radicalismjn North Carolina was with the help of the Federal bayonets, to fasten upon the white men a mongrel constitution, which her true sons had uo hand in make ing and which has like a nighUmare smothered her life and prosperity ! And to talk about tha expense of a convention and the public inter- ests ! when the crawning act ef the party, which the Times now has the hrasen pffrnnt.prv tn rhamninn. was j r - - -'i - t0 eiect wjta tQe hela of a solid n . nrrrrn vntc a UnrJina l.t am corriDosed of unnrincinled aliens. J c 1 i ignorant negroes and false aud faithless sons, who had sold them selves for a mess of pottage and were but a plaything in the hands of such scoundrels as Lallin and Littlefield, and which Legislature through bribery and corruption plundered the Sta.te to the amount of millions o dollars ! Yet these are ihe fruits of Radicalism : an oath bound League of negroes; a crop or unprincipled and greedy tf fice seekers; an inconsistent and ruinous consistution, and a Legist lature, that eclipsed the Goths and Vandals in its despoliation and 1 ll e ii I centljf adaeu to its crimes tne pas sage ot the Civil Rights bill, invites the white men of North Carolina. Not content with saddling upon you n0frPQ rni0 ; nnw invito -eon to embrace negro equality "Walk into my parlor Says the spider to the fly It's thb prettiest little parlor, That ever you did spy. But the white men will turn with disgust and indignation from a,ny such invitation. -ieI &aye seen enough of Radical rule. They have f tasted deep etioush of its bitter . . truits. lhey want an honest gov ernment and a constitution of their own making, and all the devices of their enemes to entice them from the path of duty will be in vain It was the Radical party that inaugurated the 'Color Line' vhich the Times talks so cUbiy. and in- nocer.tly about. The white men of :f the State only act together in self defence to save the country and rescue it from the hands of these who have Droved faithless, and who I Uf'aiU, 1 L tllg T Lit A VUV VUlV - P . 7 . . 1 1 tunity, bring 'ruin and misery to this fair section of God's earth as the Times calls it. That paper is correct when it says that vre aim ed that the white men constitute 1 the Upmocratic party ana tne coi ored men tne itepuoiican party, out s it 13 altogether wrong wnen it in- sinuates that we claim any antagon- jsm between the races. We have - i avg contended that the best friends of the colored men were the white men of the South. 'Jhe same good governrjenSi aaa whole sone laws that will bless one will bless the other. But Radical leaders, taking advantage of the ignorance and prejudice ot the neg roes, have taught them uiflerently in order to get their votes. They have labored to make them feel hostile their bent and only genuine friends, and have bound thera, by Eolemn oaths to cast their ballots ip of favor of the most corrupt anil tyran an nical party that eVer cursed any cbuntry. Under such circumstances, six of there was no other alternatiye for the white men, who had any respect for themselve3 or love for their country, to unite at the 1 allot box and elect honest and efficient men to make wholesome laws for both races to live under. And now, when it is proposed to elect dele gates to form a constitution to re vise the organic law which will stand perhaps for years, how im portant and hew injpratie is it, that the very best men in the State should be chosen. The Times and its party have already shown the cloven foot. Their eye is on the spoils. They are not working to get good men as delegates or a good constitution. They hope to make capital by trifl ing with this important ' question. They are concocting all sorts of schemes to divide the white vote as already belonging to them. They seem to have no idea above party capital and the flesh pets. No idea of reforming or improving the constitution has entered their dreams. Their only idea is to get the reins in their hands again. And when we appeal to the white men of North Carolina and tell them to stand to gether in self defence to look out, that the same party which fastened the Canby censtitution upon them, which pro duced the Littlefield Legislature, and which passed the Civil Rights law. is gathering its clans ready to take advantage of any luke warmness or division among them, forsooth, we are charged with drawing the 'Color Line,' and re riving an issue between the races ! The people are not so easily de ceived. They will not be influenced by such a deceptive cry. Let it be continually borne in mind that it was the Radical party, which drew the line of color, and that the same party for the same selfish purposes, has drawn the line of party in the election of delegates to the Con vention. These Radical editors threw down the guantlet, and we shall continue to appeal to every honest white man in the State to stand firm, and never permit by his vote the State of North Carolina to pass again in the hauds of the Radical party.

Laid and Wife Marriage is to a woman at once the happiest and saddest event of her life, it is the promise of future bliss raised on tho death of present enjoyment. She quits her home, her parent, her companions, her amusement everything on which she has hitherto depended for com" fort, for affection, for kindness and for pleasure. The parents by whose advee she has been guided the sis ters to whom she has dared to im part the very embryo thought and feeling the brother who has play ed with her, by turns the counselor and counseled, and the younger children to whom she has hitherto been the mother and playmate are to be forsaken at one fell stroke every former tie is loosened the spring of every action is changed, and she flies with joy in the untrod den paths before her; bouyed up by the confidence of requited love, she bids a fond and grateful adieu to the life that is past, and turns with excited and joyous anticipa tions to the happiness that is to come. Then woe to the man who can blight such fair hopes who can treacherously lure such a heart from its peaceful enjoyments and watchful protection of Lome who can, coward like, break the illusion which hase won her, and destroy the confidence which love had inspired. Be Manly. Good advice is always in season, and the following being particulary good we give it free gratis for noth ing. "Never try to keep out of a man's way when yeu are owing him any thing, unless it is a thrashing. it is bad enough, in all conscience, to be in debt, but do not make your condition worse by growing meaner under its pressure. When you abso lutely cannot pay up at the appoin ted time, don't make him think you are sick. Don't skulk about in any by-street to avoid meeting your creditor ; don t sneak around the first corner when you catch sight of him before he has seen you. Alt such conduct is unmanly. No doubt you are averse to standing face to face with man to whom you are debt- tor still it is mortifying, very, but is only one of the natural consequen ces ot borrowing, and as you have incured the penalty, why not faco it like a man. Face your creditor. Let him know that you havo nei .- ther forgotten the debt nor under rate his patience with you. Say frankly, that you are very sorry tu keep him so long out cf his money, and that you will pay up as fast and as soon as you can."
