CHARLES & BATTLE, Publishers and Proprietor. DOSSEY BATTLE, - - - Editor. ' TAllHOIlO', N. C. Friday, , : ; : March 31, 1S76 he used $150,000 in 1851, 73, and 74 in ferreting out Ku-Klux in North and Soath Carolina. 'if ire had only had another thief in the Cabinet,' remarked a Re publican on learning the result of the New .Hampshire election, 'we should have carried the State by sis thousand.' . Crimes have been unearthed at the Tewksbury (Mass) Almshouse that are too revoking for the pub lic ear. Even the Committee of Investigation could not endure the recital of more than half the testi mony. And yet, Massachusetts has long ben held up as a model for Southern emulation. Columbus, Ga., claims the posi tion of the Lowell of the South. She is now running 35,000 spindles and 1,000 looms, besides many iron and other industrial enterprises. The city was destroyed in 18G5, and all these have been replaced since with Soathern money. An election'will beheld in Con necticut on Monday, the 3rd of April, for State officers, a legisla ture that will choose a U. S. Sena tor for the unexpired term of the late Senator Frry, and a Con gressman for the unexpired term of the late Mr. Stark-weather. In view cf the approaching Presi dential election it is anticipated that both parties will use their uttermost endeavors to gain a vic tory. In the House on Friday, says the Richmond Whig, while the question of fixing the salaries for Congressmen was up, and after many amendments had been offered and rejected, Hon. Rer. Douglas, of Virginia, moved to fix the amount at $3,600 per annum, and remarked that so far as the ques tion of rich and poor was concern ed, he might say for the southern element particularly, 'The poor ye have always with ye.' The Charleston News and Courier seems to have the most pro found contempt for the majority in the South Carolina Legislature. It says that the House is composed of rascals of the very smallest calibre, and who are incapable of risinj- t. any distinguished height in villainy. There is nothing on the bonanzi order in their theft, it is petty lar denin the strict sense of the letter. Stealing a chaw of tobacco, or rob bing a peanut stand seems to fullv gratify the ambition of these Might fingered Representatives.' The Emperor and Emperesscf Brazil Embark for the United States March 26, a special from Rio Janeiro says the Emperor anl em press of Brazil embarked at 8 A. M., on board the steamer Hevilus, for the United States. The Prin cess Imperial and Count Deu ac companied them on board, and thv chief civil and military authorities attended the embarkation. The Hevilus collided with a Brazilian naval transport as he moved out of the harbor. No lives lost. The Empress was crushed against the door of the cabin, though not much hurt. The Princess Dona Isabel cts as regent during the absence of theEmperior and Empress. A Washington correspondent of the Baltimore American of thi morning says: 'Col. John S. Mosby called on President Grant to-liv. He represents that thj Prosia.'ru stated to him in conversation con cerning the third term, that r.o ma ter what his views of fceli'ia, mht heretofore have been on that sub ject, that he had no desire now, nor vrould he under auy circumstances accept another nomination, if it were proffered hira. Alluding U the Congressional investigations, and particularly to the exposure of Gen. Belknap, he stated that he "had no doubt but that Belknap had been seduced into the suaro by wo men.' Wasting Its Tine. A New England administration organ says 'the House his waste.-: away its tims in a must disgraceful mau.cr,' whero upon the Baltimore Gazett- resp-.s; U : -lYcLniy i Wis a was-b of time to t 'low h r. Belknap was swindling the poor 5oldicr3 on tho frontier and making money out of the graves of dead union soldiers in the national ceme teries; probably it was a waste of time to show how Orvl Grant, the brother of the President, is the paid solicitor and agent of a score of firms in different citiss, to obtain con tracts at exorbitant prices for worth less good3 from the government; probably it was a waste of time to prove how the country has ben swindled out of hundreds of thous ands if not millions of dollars in the PostoGce Department of Justice, and in almost every other branch r of the service. The organs cf the administration may think this a waste of time, but the people who have to foot the bills look upon it in an entirely different light. Doubt less they knew all about it. They shared in the spoils, but there was a large number of persons who were in blissful ignorance of the rascality at Washington until it was unearth ed by the present House of Repre sentatives.' Out of the thirteen centennial Democratic candidats for the presi dency, which the New York Herald so graciously selects, we think tho successful competitor for the nomi nation will be either Hendricks, of indiana, or Tilden, of New York. Mr. Tilden is deserving of much praise and consideration from his party. His friends can well boast that he is a great reformer, for not only has he remedied evils com mitted by the republican party, but also has broken up the can kerous evil the "Tammany Ring" of his own to Democratic party. If the Democrats in the National Co lvention should favor hard money then Samuel J. Tilden stands forth pre-eminently. Sheuld they leave this money question unsettled, then we hold up T. Hendricks, of In diana. For besides being a man of talent and honesty a weighty con sideration, he can ride both horses on the inflation question without being accused of having too much love for the Rag Baby, or an ear that takes too much delight in the metalic ring of the yellow lucre. Let the party give us Hendricks, and lie will be carried to the White House, Grant and Conkling to the contrary. North Carolina and her Sons. Gen. Lee in his final report of the battle of Gettysburg, thus refers to the lamented Gen. James John ston Pettigrew, who was killed at Falling Waters : 'Brig. Gen. Pettigrew, an officer of great merit and promise, was mortally wounded.' Brig. J. R. Trimble, of Maryland, in the March number of Oar Living and Our Dead, thus speaks of our boys in gray : 'So far as relate ; to the good conduct of North Carolina troops from the b-iiinuiiii; to the close of the war, I think tiieir unpretend ing courage in action; their patient submission to the privations of the camp and the march; their almost child-like docility ami accept ince of discipline everywhere; nd where circumstances needed it, th 'ir dar ing valor, are now recognized and highly appreciated by all.' 'No officer who commanded North Car olina troops has ever, that 1 know of, complained of their behavior.' lie commanded Lane's and Scales' North Caroiinia brigades in the fatal charge on the 3rd day at Gettysburg. He says of those brigades; 'Notwithstanding the losses as we alvan ed, the men marched with the deliberation and accuracy of men on drill. I observed the same In i'ettig: 's iinf ,' Gen. A. P. Ii; ii told th: late Mr. Wallace of Petersburg, Va that he always preferred to com mand North Carolinians, because of their fortitude, submission to au thority and unfaltering courage. Gen. Hood of Texas sail in h;s Yarboro House address, that North Carolina furni hed more troops than any other State, and they were of th;j best. jlh. Wa 1.; Hampton, of S. C. ioM Gjk. Vance that the best troops i:o sitw ia ilie war were from Norta Carolina. In a recent speech in the U. S, Senator Morrill, of Vermont, in re ferring to Gen. Hansom's splen did efibrt of last year that gave him a great national reputation, said : 'I remember now one of the ablest and most eloquent speeches that have been delivered in this body was delivered by tlie Senator from North Carolina.' Wc gather these facts and onin- ! ions because they are deserved coai- pliuients and concern our people. c are- giad to learn, ;is we Co from the .lu-ti Chrouicle and beuLiiti, ia it ihe itj-.i.y to the gra;ri cro; .;'' .-ria by the recent sud-itn and s voVe spelt of cold weather is not ncArly as serious as at Crst renorted. For the Southerner. Compulsory Schools, a ''Beast" in u.&ssacnus3ttj. Mr. Editor. The following is a paragraph cut from the Sings of the Timet, published at Meddleton, New York: "Tho Compulsory education ex periment is giving rise to consider able trouble in Boston. The pub lic schools in that city are kept open on Saturday until noon. The news paper? report that some time since a little girl of -Abrahamic descent was arraigned before a police court on a charge of habitually absenting hers :lf from school on Saturday. When her case was under considera tion her futher appeared to plead in her defense, and stated that as Saturday was the Jewish Sabbath he and his family attended divine service on that day. This, how ever, had do weight with the dis penser of justice, who pronounced the girl guilty of a violation of the compulsory education act of Mass achusetts, and sentenced her to undergo an imprisonment of three months in a reformatory. If this is progress, it is progress backward, and in the direction of the blue laws and the dark ages." That State takes the lead. In the city of Boston, they have be gan the persecution, and made war on tho god-given-rg hts to parents and have tern from their embrace a daughter and put her in prison for three months for violation of the school law. The little girl's disobedience was her father took her on Saturday (The Jewish Sab bath) to divin-wership. Massachu setts, no doubt has pleased Presi dent Grant who recommends Con gress to amend the Federal Consti tution so as to compel the separate states to have just such Compulsory Schools, Parents, are you willing to give up your children to be edu cated by such Tyrants 1 Tyrants will never raise up children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Massachusetts ! the land of mor ral Ideas and blue laws to puseeute witches and bluc-lights to the ene mies in 1812 are twin brothers of the beast spoken of in Rev. 13th Chapter, and is the first to give strength to the least, so the nub of its' horns are seen and felt in the land of blue laws. It seems to me that no compact or law suits them but the law of Tyrants. The Con stitution of the United States was a 'covenant of death, and an agreement with hell,' and no law but their own moral ideas seems to be the higher law that all men must bow down to tho Tyrant beast. If Congress shall give heed to the wicked devices of . false prophets and false teachers and amend the organic law so as to force the sepa rate States to do as Massachuetts, then I believe the day is not far distant when there will be great lamention and morning with moth ers and bloodshed by fathers in this once happy and prosperous states. I hope God will give us honest and capable statemen to guide and rule. 76. Our Washington Letter. Washington, D. C, t March 127th, 17 "6. Editok South eenf.u : March, the much abused and long desired wit oe 48 baa returned from Canada. lie arrived, on Wednesday and has been before the judiciary committee. He does not seem entirely, assured of his safety, for in giving his testimony, he is restless and uneasv : This is the result of the action of President Grant and Attorney General Pierrepont Marsh says that Mr. Clymer did not tell him to go away and that he had no intention of leaving: the country when he left Washington. So that it appear that all the at use heaped on Olvmer for Marsh's disaonearance is mere radical venom. Mrs. Marsh has also testified and there is such a chair of evidence from a cloud of witness testifying to substantially the same facts, that the correction of Belknap is assured. The committee it is said, will report the articles of impeach ment on Wednesday. Ex Senator Stewarts testimony be fore the committee on foreign affairs in regard to the Emma Mine (Swindle ia the most amusing and interesting ever given since Sam Waller testified in the great case of Bardell vs. Peck wlck (see Charles Dickens reports), ike Ei. (Senator clothes his answers in useless verbiage, that would require the ingenuity of one of the proverbi al "Philadelphia lawyers" to discover the meaning. He evidently believes with Sallyrand "that words were in vented to conceal thoughts. Minister Schenck is here but urr to-day has been (so ho Bays) too oti well to appear before the committee: The kitchen cabinet organs have delighted in harping on what they cail the want of action in tho House, yet they say nothing about an act which originated in a republican Sen ate a few days ago and which for utter stupi lity, impracticabilitv and want of statesmanship has not had the parrallel since the session began. I a'dudo to tha bill of Senator llam liu regulating the trauamission of third class mail matter. It will be remembered what a faux pus the same gentleman made last session when he raised the rate on that species of matter from one to two oents per ounce. He now proposes a sliding scale, making the price of this class of matter depend upon the destina tion it is carried, and the postmaster is to be judge of the price. If adopt ed such a law could only result, in total cDnfossion, besides offering ad ditional inducements and opportuni ties to postmasters to steal. Every newspaper ia the country is ridicu ling thu proposed law, and its autiiors name will be handed down as the champion blunderer of the times. Our post office must be wretchedly managed as there is a deficiency of ten million dollars. It is-expected that the Patent office will soon receivod the attention of a committee. Ic teems to be admitted ttiat no niduction should be made in tlio force in this olf.ee, or in the pay ot th'j clerks, because the office is more the self sustaining and the em ployees have to be skilled mon who are entitled to good salaries. The work of the Committee will be to discover what disposition is made of the large surplus received every year. It i thought that some interesting devel opments, of money paid to outside parties, will be made.. The law re quires that each department or bu reau shall publish each year an exact statement giving the name of each employee and the amount paid to each, together with other expenses incurred. This has not been done in the Patent office sinoe 1861, and there is probably "a large sized bug under that chip." Senator Conklin has vi olated another law by appearing be fore tho appeal board of the patent office and making a caeo of interference between patentees. Of course the Sen ator, whose bare word could dismiss any member of the board, gumed the case. The insolence of Blaino as the Republican leader in the House has become almost unbearable and it received a wholesome check on Thurs day from Mr. Yeatman of North Car olina, who depricated tho continual use of the term "rebel" to designate southern men in the confederate army. Ho claimed for himself and his south ern compatriots as much patriotism and love of the union as was to be found among the Republicans, He showed that no sooner did a southern man baconje a republican as Holden of N. C. and Longstreet had done, that at once they were no longer reb els, all taint being removed, and that tha only reason-for the use oft "this term was that the people of the fcuth would not accept the teaching of re publicans. In other words that they were "rebels," against republican domination aad not against the country. Nothing of interest has oc curred in e'.ther House. The legisla tive appropriation bill is being dis cussed and will be passed as reported. The Senate will not agree to it and a grand fight may be expected. Ekno.
