Established in 1822. CHARLES & BATTLE, rublisUcrs mid Proprietors. TAltllOHO, n. o. Friday, : : Jan 23,1576 It is thought at "Washington that neither Eustis nor Tinchback "will get the vacant seat, but that as soon as the Louisiana Legislature adjourns Kellogg will supplant them both with that dear Brother-in-law Casey. The plan includes the purchase of Tinchback with the mission to Hay ti. The Cincinnati Commercial, which has come to be a sort of army and navy journal, jogs Grant's memory with the fact that if it hadn't been for the present editor of the New York Sun he would have been removed from the com mand of the Army of the Tennessee in 1SG3. That would account for the liberties Mr. Dana now and then takes with his protege if it were true. But the fact is Grant had no friend then but Lincoln. The majority of the committco on military affairs has reported against the reduction of the army. No doubt they came to this con clusion in view of the powers of the President to plunge the country into a war with Spain, Mexico or any Dther Nation without the au thority of Congress. Certainly the present army is not a very for midable one, but if its use were to be confined, as for several years past to the purposes of waiting up on politicians and carrying South ern elections, or setting up State governments, the whole of it could be dispensed with. In its leg;ti mate place, there will le no objec tion to th? army at its presen tsize. Official returns for the past year show that France contains about 21,000,000 acres of wood land, of which thirteen and a half belong to private individuals, five to the Communes and public establish ments, and two and a half to the State. The average value of the State forests is estimated at about .15 an acre, which would hi 37o, 000,000 for the whole two and a half million acres. In comparison with other countries France is very badly off for forests, as Germany has nearly twice a3 much, and tne Austro-IIungarian empire half as much again. Sweden has about 45,000,000 acre3 of woodland. Hcl&an as a Martyr. There is but little in the compo sition cf W. W. Ilolden of that stuff of which martyrs are made. The attempt mads by Blaine to elevate such a man to the position of mar tyr has recoiled with cruel force on his own head. The Philadelphia Times aptly says : 'Holden signed the North Caro lina ordinance of secession, and reveled in and profited by the rebel camp as there was anything left for profit. Then Ae crawled into the carpet-bagger's camp, was elected Governor by bayonets and fraud, joined a gang who squan dered twenty millions of bonds, utterly bankrupted the State by venality, and was clearly preven guilty and justly deposed and pun ished by disqualification for public trust. Did Mr. Blaine forget that this is a land of telegraphs, news papers and schools V Mr. Blaine did not forget that; but like Garfield, he i3 'ignorant of the history of his own country.'

He was presi dent of the Chesapeake and Ohio canal in 183G -10.

C, ) Jan. 27th, 1870. $ Editor Southerner : All who desire a return to conser vative government, and who feel sat isfied that the people of the South have honestly returned to tho Union with the desire and intention to re main in it, as loyal upholders of tho flag, regret the tone of the two gen tleman named above in their lato speeches. While thero is nothing really objectionable in them, their words are subject to misconstruction, and the radicals of the North will not fail to use them to great advantage in the coming election. Facts as they exist should be better understood' by the southern people, and these mis takes would bo avoided. There are two elements among the voters of the country without which the republican party could hardly maintain a national organization, de prived of which it could have no hope in the next presidential election These are the soldiers of the North and the negroes of the South, thing which tends to ailenate Any tneso classes from the party it is the politi cal duty of the South to do, and it is equally for her interest to abstain from doing what will have the con trary effect. I venture to assertion that no class of citizens in the North can more readly be won over to the support of the South in her struggle for her rights in the Union than those who were the soldiers in tho late war. That they practically voto as a unit on the republican side ia not because of harsh feeling towards the southern people, or bitter recollections cf the war, or sentimental davotioa to the negro ; or because they receive special honors at the hands of republicans, but because throughout the North there is a widespread fear, kept alive by designing men there, and injudi cious ones in the South, that the war is not over ; that the South waits only for the occasion, and will then renew its struggle of force. That such an idea should have weight with the million and-a-haif of voters who put their lives in peril in the previous struggle is not to be wondered at. That such speeches as those of Rep resentatives Hill and Tucker in the late debates will have an unfortunate effect on this class of men is not to be doubted. Plain men who "have iust laid down the musket are not accus- tuuieu w inaae uisunctions nno as those which exist between ' the doc trines cf these gentlemen and the arguments used to justify the act of seocession. The object cf this letter is not to discuss the doctrines them selves but to state the effect of their enunction at this time; and I know that no dozen radicals in the North ean do so much injury to tho South, in consolidating the soldier elemant, as one prominent, injudicious south man. The negro question seemed to be approaching a settlement when this Con gress assembled State after State had come under the controll of white men. The prospect ef a united South supporting a conservative national ticket was certainly good, and, indeed, republican politicians eeem to have' feared it. Else why has Mr. Blaine a man hoping to be nominatad and elocted President, taken the only ap parent moans of preventing 6uch a result? lie has commenced to lay a foundation- for fedetal military interfence i n southern affairs, and those who re member the history of the past 10 years should think well before doing or saying any thing which may give to this wily politician and his associ ates the opportunity they are trying to secure. Bemembering Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi, it becomes all southern men. to hold secure what they have, and to seek further success in a way not to bring upou them selves certain defeat and the miseries that they have endured in tho past. The northern democratic and inde pondant papers are, as they Bhould endeavoring to impress these facts upon the southorn mind. Tho New York Tribune is speaking out boldly, aii lt3 warnings are being repeated by many of tho western papers. Tho West is as largely interested in a change from, radical rules as the South. Its material prosperity is cr ushed by tariffs that rob its people fu r tho benefit cf castwra manufac-tuic-H, and their words on this sub jo nt, spoken as thoy are for tho ben efit of all, and in a spirit of candor, should bo heeded. But little legislation has been ac complished ; in fact, not much could be expected thus early. One thing is sure; the expenditures will be largely reduced, and no subsidies or jobs will i be -permitted to pass tho house. The Centennial Appropriation and the Texas Pacific Bailroad Bill are not looked upon as either jobs or subsidies. Tho first is demanded to maVa tX&Ag preparation to receive th farwftt na -tions who will come to sea ttta pro -ress we have made in our flfgt centu ry of existence ; and the garatej of tho interest on its bonds, which is all that i3 asked by the Texts Poiuc, and the payment of which is mply secured is the only way to btwak down an arrogant and odious moaopoly that levies tribute upon th Industry of tho whole country. Tha SftOth and West are peculiarly interested 10 tnu work, and should urgs it fofward. All kinds of rumors arc afloat as to the Cuban question. It is said that the President has a message prepared on the subject which will bs MJXt in very soon, and that lie calls UpoA Con gress to intervene and close th war. The tone of Secretary Fish's letter to Minister Cushing at Madrid woul indicate that unless Spaine speedily shows her power to crush t&e xebel- 1- .1 . .

One thiag is sure, groat activity is fihovn in getting the navy ready for IM, and numbers of vessels, one being sent to the southern coast. The Members of Congress opposed to the specie re sumption are talking about a caucus to prepare some measure of which, if they have tho requisite number of votes, they will ask the consideration They seem to be doubtful of aoyiii meeting their views being repoita by tho committees. iiuc. advertisement. TO THE PUBLIC For the past six mental, Mr. Josiah Turner of the Sentinel ha3 been pleased to allude to me ia his paper in terms not very compli mentary. To those who know both mjself and Mr. Turner, explanation is un necessary; but to those at a dis tance I deem it necessary to make some explanation, notwithstanding my great dislike to- a newspaper quarrel. 1 will low give my version of tho story and leave the matter for the public to judge : Mr. Turner calls me stockholder Blacknall, and alleges that I am run in both the Hotel and News by Iling men. My connection with the News amounts to simply this: When Messrs. Stone & Uzzell sold out their interest in the paper, they were owing me for beard five hun dred and twelve dollars and eighty eight cents; this amount they pro posed to pay by note, or I should take five hundred dollars stock in the paper. I accepted tfee latter, thereby giving Mr. Turner so much cause for complaint. Previous to that time, (about July 1824,) I had no connection direct er indirect with the paper. Mr. Turner says the riig, through stockholder, Blacknall, set op Bob Furman of the Asheville Citizen to vilify and abuse him. About the latter part of the year 1865, Mr. llobt. M. Furman, a mere youth, commenced the publication of a small paper in Henderson; baving but limited means he came to me for help. I loaned him two hund- red dollars, which he promptly puiu. is. iew years mereaiter, fir. Furman sold out his interest in Henderson to go to Portsmouth, Va., and start another enterprise. This time I advanced him four hun dred dollars, which he afterwards paid. After 1 moved to Raleigh Mr. Furman was at his home in Louis burg, out of employment, and fre quently sought my advice as to starting a paper in Raleigh or Char lotte. Finding the Asheville Citi zen for sale, he negotiated for its purchase, and the third time called on me for aid. Having faithfully paid me all back dues, I felt no hesitation whatever in helping him again and I feel no hesitation in saying Mr. Furman has mere con tempt for anything like rings or corruption than Mr. Turner pre tends to have. Mr. Turner has much to say about my trying to buy him out for the ring. A few years since a party of gentlemen, six or seven in number, sent for me to room No. 8 in the Hotel. When I walked in one of them asked me, 'What will buy the Sentinel V My replj was, 'I have no idea, and do not know even if it is for sale.' Another add ed, "Will you see Mr. Turner and firid out, and let us know to-night ?" I replied, "I will ; but would first like to know what object you have in view?" A gentleman who was lying on tho bed, and had net spo ken up to this time, arose and said, 1 t F . 1 fi. "My object is to get the money lurner borrowed to make the pur chase." This is all I know about buying out Mr. Turner ; nor have I ever known and ring or combination for any purpose whatsoever. Mr. Turner says, 'Stockholder Bla eknall claims that I owe him five hundred and seventy five doK lars for board but I hare an ac count against the stockholder, and when we settle there may be noth ing coming to him.' Mr. Turner boarded himself and family with me until his account ran np to near eight hundred dollars. When we settled, after deducting his account in full, he gave his noto for five hundred and sevcnty-fiTO dollars which I now hold. Some time after he left some mention was made in tho Sentinel, about my owing him. Mr Fuller, my clerk, called at his office and asked for a statement of account so that he might settle. Mr. Turner replied: 'I will get Mr. Dadly to have it made out by tc-morrow.' Mr. Fuller called again and again, probably ten or twenty times, and every time receiving the same reply trom either JUr. lurner. his son. tho manager, that he should have the statement in a few hours, but up to this time I have never had it. Mr. Turner says 'How could stockholder Blacknall if not run by the King, set up newspapers, and furn;sh the Yarboreugh House with forty five thousand dollars worth of new furniture, when he cannot or will net pay Mrs. Happer for the rent of her Hotel at Weldon V In I860, I rented the Weldon iotel of Mrs. Cornelia Happer and put Capt. J. C. Howard there to manage it. After two years had elapsed, finding the business neith er pleasant or profitable, I proposed to her agent that 1 would ior the unexpired term relinquish my furniture in the house if he would annul the contract with me. This he consented to do, and if the party taking my place has failed to pay any part of the last year's rent, why, it is no fault of mine. And as to buying twenty-five thousand dollars worth of furniture for the Yarhrough IIouqe let me assure Mr. Turner that I had no difficulty in buying what furniture I needed, having dealt for the pa9t twenty years in most of the Northern cities and promptly met every engage ment I had at the time 1 made the purchase; and have now unlimited credit, and furthermore, outside of my bankers I have never sought nor had the aid direct or indirect of any one towards helping me meet my payments: notwithstanding, 1 have many kind friends who would cheerfully aid me were I to ask it. Mr. Turner says : 'His bills for entertaining editors and railroad men must be five thousand dollars for five vears.' Now, really, this is the unkindest cut of all. I com menced the hotel business at Kitt rell Springs in 18G0- and have been in it off and on ever since, and if 1 have met with success in the business, most is due to the aid received from my good friends of the press, the pulpit and rail road: and when in my power I have gladly reciprocated their kindness being determined they should never accuse me of ingratitude, call ed one of the meanest traits ia a person's character. I will never turn back on old frier-.ds. If Mr. Turner will take the trouble to re fer to the account rendered him by Mr. Fuller he will find a deducation of twenty-five per cent, allowed him on account of beinn; an editor. In conclusion, both Mr. Turner and mvseif have lived in Ra'eish lor the past five years, and have dealt with dry goods men, butcher3, bankers' grocers, hucksters, la bores and they can tell who pay3 debts aiad who dodges them. Talk is easy; but only have many tran sactions with a inaa for a number of years and you will see of what material he is made. I make the above statement not apologetically, nor in deprecation; but that the public may see upon what absurd foundation Mr. Turner has erected the fabric which has been the staple of his j aper so long. Ho may possibly, by repeating it so often, believe it is true. None who know me are so weak as to do so, and for those who do not, the above will furnish sufficient refu tation. Very respectfully, G. W. Blacknall. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
