A Convention of Democratic-Conservati re voters of the Second Congressional District will be held in the town,. of Goldsboro on Wednesday the 24th day of May next, lor the purpose of nominating a candidate for Congress and a Presidential Elector, and selecting ' two delegates to the St. Louis Convention. A full attendance is earnestly desired. Each county will be entitled to one vntn for every fiftv sriven for Merrimon in 1872. By order of the District Executive Com raittee. H. E. T. Masking. Chfirman. April 20th 1S7G. Mr. John Syme has been appoin ted receiver of Raleigh Sentinel. President Grant's grandchild, the daughter of Mrs. Sartoris (nee Nellie Grant) is dead. Wm. Henry Hurlbert has pur chased the interest of Mauton Mar ble in the New York World . The editor of the Winston Senti nel whaled the hide off Judge Cloud for slandering his (the editor's) family. The endorsement of Allen and the rag baby by the Ohio Demo cracy, has weakened Thurman be fore the St. Louis convention, and enhanced the prospects of Tilden. Most of the Democratic Press favors Tilden as the moot available candidate. The Petersburg Index Appeal, one ot the ablest papers South of "Masons and Dixon's line" wants Hancock nominated. President Grant has nominated Judge Pierrepont to be Minister to the Court of St. James. Judge Taft will preside over the Depart ment of Justice and "Don" Cam eron will be becretary ot war. This change is a move in favor o Conkling at Cincinnati, by secur ing the Pennsylvania vote. Avery Becoming Bible-Obeying. Uur old college mate and com rade-in-arm3 Willoughby Avery of the Morgantoa Blade has been presented by his superior two thirds with bouncing twins. One exchange says: A-very good start, another that he has made two Blades (of grass) to grow in place of one. We say he Wi (obey) oughby the iiiblical in junction about multiplying, &c. Our congratulations, Bro. Independent Candidates. Our worthy cotemporaries the Wilmington Star and Wilson Ad vance have both given utterance to eolden words on this subiect. An independent democratic candidate is, as Jo. Turner calls him, "a brin dle tail" dependent on radical votes. He is a wolf in the fold, an enemy in camp. And when a spurious democrat so far forgets his allegiance to the party as to oppose its regular nominees, he c?n be considered no longer a democrat. We hope none of these barnacles will clog the bot tom of our good old ship in the coming campaign. Whenever radicals despair of electing their candidates, they ap proach these brindle-tails softly and sweetly with the sugar plum of promises and the consequence is an "Independent Candidate." We have too much at stake to deal with these fellows with kid gloves on. Down with Independent Candidates ! Tho Meanest Man in the Senate. We get the following from the Washington correspondeace of the Cincinnati Enquirer. It is no more singular than true that all the prominent crusaders against the South in the inception of the great struggle Lave died or come to heavy grief. Let those, who are en deavoring to pursue the same path, read and ponder. To-day, as I wa3 coming out of the Senate wing of the capito', I saw drawling along in front of me a figure which might have once been that of a man, but which now lack ed only the projection of the verte brco beyond the coccyx bone to form the Darwinian link of connec tion between man and the fauna. The shoulders bent not only for ward but inward, as if the bosom had undergone a collapse consequ ent upon the removal of the soul from his seat. The head was can, ted forward from the spinal column as if the being no longer dared lock mankind in the face, but per petually surveyed the ground to find some hole to drop into. Th& tiiia ess wobbled about like the hind eers of a sick cow, and the toes ' were turned outward nearly to a right angle with the line ef march, as if the instincts of the man's feet, better and nobler than those of his head, were trying to lead him off into new and more honorable paths than those to which he clings. He was clad in a nasty old swal- ow tail coat and pants that had be- come glazed ana greasy, xzia stovepipe hat was old and dusty. Ilit face was the color ot a Daaiy tanned piece of sole leather, and as he walked his fingers kept up a nervous twitching as though he were trying to grab something. In his mouth he held the stump of a Con necticut seed leaf cigar (price hve cents). It is seldom that one sees such a picture as this. It was .Hannibal Hamlin the meanest man in the Senate, which is saying a great deal in a few words, and one of the meanest men in Maine, which is exhausting the vocabulary at once and forever. Salonica. The murder of the foreign con suls by the Turks at Salonica has greatly complicated the Eastern question. balonica is the old lhssalonica of the New Testament, now a beau tiful city situated on the North bank of the Danube. We get the following description of the city from correspondence of the Raleigh News. ANOTHER "HOLT WAe" threatens Europe. Let us, hope, however, that it may be averted. Several years ago I passed some time in Salonica, where the alleged ou'rage by the Mohammedan mob, culminating in the murder of two foreign Consuls, has just occurred. Let me give you a paragraph about the city. First however, let me say, for fear I forget it, that the members of the Turkish Legation here intimated that whether the alleged outrage originated with the Mohammedan populace or not, one thing is certain; which is, that more than one European power would like some exense for dismembering the Turkish Empire, and dividing it up among them selves.. aDd will seize the first opportunity to do so. SALONICA rises like an amphitheatre from the bay, and the poetry of nature and art are combined by mingling trees and domes, so as to make a superb picture. It had many points of interest; among others the Fortress of Seres Towers which stands on the site of the ancient Acropolis, and commands a glorious view bounded by Mount Olympus. The Chaonish Monastery stands on a height above the city, and oilers healthy quarters for a traveller. Its present caboyers are Greeks of that servile type that set an Amer ican s teeth on edge to listen to. When I was there the chief inhabitants of Salonica were Jews of a high type, many of them very wealthy, and r ranks of all sorts, as western Europeans are called there. The Hebrew element was the highest in point of culture ana social display; ana it was related to me by an aristocratic English visitor who was putting up with the Consul of his country while there, that neither his family nor that of the French Consul, though both highly connected, could mingle in the first society there, because of the inability of their fami lies to compete with the splendor of dress and jewels of the descendants of Abraham. It i well known that the Turks have had aa much as they could attend to for years, to keep the various Christian sects from des trey ing each other. The Greek Christians and Roman Catholic dislike each other, aD(l are in constant turmoil, lighting even over the mouth of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusa lem for precedence. Of course the Protes tants and Hebrews differ from these. The lower clases of Mahommedans are as bi goted as are those of other sects; but the government is tolerant and tries to pro tect all. The Press Convention. Having the Episcopal Conven tion with us at the same time last week, we were unable to attend the Press Convention atNewbern. We much regret that it was a failure, as the following melancholy cor respondence of Col. Cameron, Edi tor of the Raleigh News, and Presi dent of the convention will show : Newbera, May 15, 1876. Arriving here tonight at half past nine o'clock, 1 would have been glad to have found a dark back street through which to have groped my way to the hotel. There, drawn up in imposing array, were the two fine military companies of the city headed by a splendid band richly uniformed, a dense crowd thronging the street and platform, the whole made conspicuous by the glare of blazing torch-lights, to do honor and receive becomingly the Press Association of North Caro lina, consisting of myself and the two young editors from Oxford ! The thing looked ridiculous, and except for the disappointment of , the Newbern people, was supremely so so absurd a conclusion of so much promise and expectation. The kindly Mannix took us in charge, and the military, not to have all their preparation for nothing, in sisted upon escorting us to the Gas ton House. But even the inspirit ing strains of the music, the pic turesque glare of the torches, and the real beauty of the scene could not drive away the impression that we few representatives of the pres3 cut a somewhat ridiculous figure. If it didn't savor so much of tragedy it would flourish well as a first class farce. Think of it! Two fine military companies, gorgeously uniformed with band playing and banners fly ing, drawn up in imposing array; an immense congregation of the good citizens of the Elm City torches and bonfires all enhancing the gaudy scene displayed in honor of the editors, when lo, behold, Col. Cameron, the grayhaired, honored and revered President steps off the cars with "two young editors from Oxford." No wonder the blush of embarrassment mantled the cheek of the able President and he wished for some "dark back street" to swallow him up. Who, under the circumstances, wouldn't have been impressed with the fact that "we few representatives of the Press cut a somewhat ridiculous figure." Not the music, nor the banquet, nor the proverbial hospitality of the citizens, ner the gay surroundings, nor paraphernalia of pleasure could shake off the feeling. Like the old man on the back of Sinbad the sailor it could not be unsaddled. As the shirt of Nessus it would cleave. Where wa3 the reportorial Iarrell of tha Henderson Tribune ? Where Bonitiz, the live editor of the Messengeri Where was every body, that Col. Cameron should 'eel so keenly, "uneasy is the head that wearn a crown V .4 very 01 the Blade has recently been bless ed with twins, hence nobody ex pected him. Halifax Court was in session, Manning couldn't go. Thorp of the Mail is constitution ally tired, and Woedson was confined to his bed with wet cloths bandag ing his head getting up that "vit reous" "lapidary" article on us But where were the other fifty edi tors that they were not present ? Such preparations, kindness and hospitality on the part of the good peegle of Newbera, observed better things. Wo were anxious for our Western brethren to see how- an Eastern city could entertain. We desire to hear from the "two young Oxford editors." We await the arrival of the Danville News to see what Col. Donan has to say he arrived the second day and made a speech. W e can see uoi. J. rise in his majesty before us flanked on either side by the Oxford editors pass down between the files of bril liant soldiery, with the hand play ing "Hail to the chief, &c."and his nath illuminated by the blinding 4 w glare of torches. Col., we sympa thise with you. Jt the meeting had Deen more thoroughly advertised, and appeals been made to editors, a larger at tendance must have been the result. Money, noever, is tighter now than at any time since the war, and this may explain the presence of a a the lacttal fluid in the tropical fruit. We believe now that success is impossible without New York, and we are goin to get New York by nominating Tilden. We don't like him as well as a Western man, but that is not the thing. We fear a Western man cannot carry New York or any other Eastern State, so we drop the West and go for Tilden. Cincinnati Commercial. Our Washingon Letter. Washisgtox, D. C, .1 May 22nd. 187G PRESIDENTIAL, The Republican, in and about Washington, and the Republican press throughout the country, so far as I have information, are predicting the defeat of the Democratic party in the coming Presidential campaign, because, as they assert, we cannot carry Ohio. They argue that the Democracy were beaten in Ohio un der the leadership of Governor Allen last October, and that they will, there fore, be beaten again next October ; and consequently in November, as well. It is further asserted that it the Democratic party is beaten in Ohio in October, it will so discourage the voters in other States as to result in the defeat of the party in the Pres idential election in November. All this is utterly false, and should ben.et at once. In the first place, there is no warrant for the assertion that the Democratic party cannot carry Ohio in a Presidential election, because they were beaten in a Gubernatorial contest. But suppose we do lose Ohio, and Indiana as well ; that cannot de feat us. The Democratic party does not depend on those States for success. I was present, last evening, when this 1 subject was discussed by several gen tlemen high in the counsels of the Democratic party, and it was clearly demonstrated that a Democratic Pres ident can be elected without the vote of either of those States. The South ern States, which we are sure to car ry, will, with New Yoik, New Jersey, Connecticut, California, and Oregon, give us a majority. While on the other hand, if wo were to carry Ohio and Indiana, and lose New York and New Jersey, we should be defeated. If, therefore, we do not depend on the vote of Ohio and Indiana in N6 vember, the loss of Ohio in October cannot affect us. We want, and hope to carry, those States ; but their loss cannot defeat us. THE PBBSIDEHt's $50,000 SALARY. The tenacity with which Grant holds on to his $50,000 salary grab, obtain ed in the first instance by lobbying in favor of the pickpocket bill by which every Congressman, on the last day of his term, laid hands on 5,000 extra pay, was to have been expected from the character of the man whose whole appreciation of the office he holds is limited by its mate rial advantages. It i3 true the re pealing bill could not have affected his allowance in any way under the constitution, and would only have re stored the $15,000 salary for the next incumbent ; but it gave him tho op portunity to make an argument in support of h;8 own greed in a veto message, of which he availed him self in his own peculiar style. He alleged that the prices of the staples of life are now three times as high as they were in 1790, when the Pres ident's salary was fixed at $25,000 ; an assertion not sustained by facts. On the contrary, it has been shown by Prof. Jevons that forty articles in most common use in England, not including manufactured goods; but metals, lumber, flour breadstuff's, meat, sugar, tea, coffee, dairy prod ucts, etc., in 1865, showed a decline of 20 per cent. Since 1782. If to these were added goods manufactur ed, as they now are, by labor-saving machinery, until all markets are over stocked, and cotton prints are selling at 6 and 7 cents a yard, good shoes at $1 to So per pair, all sorts of household goods and furniture at nominal prices so uncompensating that they do not encourage further production, it would be seen that Grant, in declaring that prices are now ten times higher than in 1790, had not based his assertion upon the candid comparison thereof, but mis takes the facts to strengthen a weak argument. The truth is, we should not never have had the infamous sal ary grab but for him. He wanted his fifty thousand dollars, and sug gested the general increase in order to find justification for his own, which the great majority of the last Con gress was quite willing to take ; al though most of them were elected to stay at home in consequence thereof. It is an outrage that so much extrav agance should be indulged in by pub lic officials at a time when the coun try is suffering from a continued fi nancial depression, when the value of property has decreased one-half and millions of working people are out of employment. MAETLAND IN THE FIELD. The friends of Hon. Thos. Swann, of Maryland, are activeland earn estly urging him as a 'sU table candi date for the bt .Louis nomination. Mr. Swann is a man of a high order of ability and unblemished personal integrity, and his experience in pub lie affairs is surpassed by very few men in this country. As Mayor of Baltimore, Governor of Maryland, Chairman of an important Committee of the House, President of several Railroads, he has invariably succeed ed. Mr. fcwann nas, so lar, never been connected with a failure, public or private, whenever he was the con trolling power. Mr. Swann's friends have been a little too late in bringing his name forward for the first place on the ticket. It. however, he can be induced to accept the second place, there is lit; le doubt but what it will be tendered him. ATTENDANCE AT THE CENTENNIAL. Some fellow who exhibits a taste for "figgers," and is probably a Gov- ernment clerk with a plenty of spare time on his hands, has been calcula ting the chances cf success for the Exposition in a pecuniary way. If his calculation is correct, and I be lieve it is, those chances are of the very slimest. The cost, according to this authority, was about $, 500.000, and, from the 10th of May to the 10th of November inclusive, and excluding Sunday?, gives 150 days when the grounds will be open to the public. It will thereiore require an average daily attendance of something over Qo,000 to make it pay. The number on the ground on the opening day has been estimated at about 200,000. Sinca that time the daily average had been about 30,000 persons. It ha3 been estimated by others that if the grounds were kept open on the twenty-seven Sundays, the re ceipts would be three times as large as for a corresponding nurrber of week days. Apropos of Centennial matters, Dr. Dexter, of this city, who was appointed in the inception ot the project to represent the Government, has been summarily removed. He was before the Investigating Commit tee a few days ago, and testified against Dr. Nichols, of the Govern ment Asylum for the Insane, whose manifold sins of omission and com mission, are just coming to light, and who is a pet of Boss Shepherd and a swilling companion of tho President KICKING IN THE TliACES. Some of the colored Republicans of this city, having become tired of wearing the chains of the Republican party, have organized a "National Independent Political Union," avow ing open hostility to that party. They have issued an address to their people all over the country to unite with them, in which they accuse their former associates of having placed them in antagonism with their South ern white neighbors, and cite the mismanagement of the Freedman's Bank against them. When the col ored people of the Southern States learn the lesson that whatever dis criminates against their States hurts themselves as well as their white neighbors, then they will unite with the latter in support of their mutual interests. It is evident that, lor weal or woe, the interests of the people of the South of all colors are indenti cal. Whatever injures one race in jures all. I rosperous times iortne white men means prosperous times for the bleck ; and that will bring good-will and harmony. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS, Pitt County In the Superi or Court.
