The following is asummary of last Friday's telegraphic news : Washington Revenue yesterday over one million dollars. The Census Commissioner asks for an ad ditional million of dollars to complete his work. The decrease of the public debt during the month of Jane is nearly twenty and a quarter millions. The amount of coin in the Treasury is one hundred and twelve millions and three quarters. Of currency the amount is twenty- nine millions. Hoses II. Grinnell has been appointed collector of the Custom House, New York- Thomas Murphy collector third district of North-Carolina Wm. B. Richardson second district of North-Carolina. The whisky lobbiests have departed, hav ing received assurances that there will be no modification of the whisky tax or regula tions. fYiNr.KEssioxAL A futile attempt was made in the Senate, on the tax bill, to tax incomes from Government bonds five per cent The final vote on striking out the income tax was yeas 20, nays 21, This vote is considered a finality upon this question, An amendment was adopted providing that the tax on government officers shall cease August 1st. The funding bill passed in the House 129 to 41. This bill provides for the issue of one thousand millions dollars of bonds redeemable in thirty yean, at four per cent cash interest, exempt from taxation by the U. S. or by the States the bonds to be gold at par, and the proceeds to he devoted to the redemption of the 5-20 s at par value. It also authorizes the Secretary of the Treas ury to receive gold on deposit in sums not less than one hundred dollars for which certi ficates are to be issued bearing three per cent TUoco deposits may be withdrawn at any time on thirty days notice. Seventy-five per cent, of these deposits is to be used in the redemption of bonds. The bill directs that all bonds purchased by the Secretary and now held in the Treasury shall be can celled and destroyed, and all bonds re deemed hereafter shall be cancelled and de stroyed and deducted from the outstanding public debt.

Southerns quiet The Canvass this Summer. We observe with pleasure the general dis position on the part of Republicans, as well as Conservatives, to canvass together in the approaching contest. We believe that we should return to this system. Various rea sons caused a departure from it, but as those reasons have ceased to be any longer bind ing, the old method of campaigning should be resumed. We announce to-day the list of appoint ments for this County. We hope to be able to make a similar announcement for the dis trict in a few days. There is no need of further shirking on cither side, for both par tics desire to hear the candidates, and con sider both sides of tbe question. Should any candidate .decline to acqui csce in a fair arrangement for a mutual can vass, be he Conservative or Republican, it will be a powerful weapon against him. So far as our party is concerned, therefore, we unequivocally' declare for a common can vass. We have nothing to fear from dis cussion. We have much to gain. What do the opposition leaders say to the propo sition? Two More Kuklux Cases. Recently at Morrisvillc, the Euklux called on the postmaster, and when he opened the door they demanded drink. They said that they were the ghosts of Confederate soldiers slain at Cedar Mountain, and were on a jour ney to South-Carolina! Their disguises were pcrlcct and hideous in tbe extreme. After taking a "dram" apiece, they departed. Morrisvillc is twelve miles from this city. A volley of buckshot shauld have been fired inlo them. . We did not obtain this intelligence from any one at Morrisvillc, but from a person, who knows that it occurred. This is the same region where Squire Hol laway was recently whipped. From Orango County, we learn that a refugee named Maynor, recently wrote back home to have his crop of grain harvested. Under the notices for hands to reap for Maynor, appeared another notice from the Euklux, warning all laborers not to cut that grain, and the grain is now rotting in May nor's field. Accursed be the men, who contradict the blessing of God, upon the. biowof that man, who has made two spires of grass to grow where one grew before. Forlthe Blackguard. The impudent rascal who edits the Senti nel has' again preferred charges against us in his usual blackguard manner. We know that few people cars to read his obscene and bawdjkouse articles, but we feel bound to give him the lie once more. He has lied about Pike. Let us have the proof. He has lied about " Shakcspear " as he calls blm. Let us have the proof, with the names. . . -. - His informants in both instances arc liars. The blackguard and impudent rascal ought to keep his brothers out of jail, and at tend to the morals of his own kinsfolk. " Charity begins at home. " He has no time to devote to us, so he says. He is correct ; for thus far, his time in that respect has been lost and frittered away. Stink and rot, rot and stink, you black hearted rascal. It will not be many days before your own party will kick you out of the position that you have secured by im pudence and the money of Geo. W. Swepson. Take yout three glasses ot ale per week. Break your tickler once more in Mont gomery. Defile yourself in Pitt County. Sneak around the grog-holes in Raleigh for news items. Get drunk In Rockingham and suggest the murder of Jndge Settle once . Go on with your career of infamy and indecency. The dirty columns oi your dirty paper jire an index of your breeding. We know you and you know that we know you. You fear the Standard. It has lashed you until you fear it. A liar, the brother of a felon, a lily-livorcd apol ogist for murder and assassination. You have made a record, which none but a fiend or demon could emulate in treachery and mean- We know that you are4ntenined afd despised by the better portion of your own party. They regard you as a cancer upon them. Yates, Hancs, and others look upon you with disgust. Degraded, .debased and treacherous, you have the confidence of thieves and assassins, who applaud your speeches and support your paper. We regard you as such as the friend and sympathizer of depraved and base men, who have fastened themselves through you, on the Democratic party. The true men of that party feel their weight, they rcrrard vou as an incubus. They have de nounced your followers. You have taken up the cudgels in their defence. They have denounced vou finally, and you have shel tered yourself from them for awhile. Go on, and still keep thinking there is no po litical h I for you. You will find it ere long ; and fall, to join those men, who are weeping and gnashing their teeth, because they have never repented of treason, mur der, robbery and assassination, but have re mained and continue to be its apologists, and the sympathizers of its execution. You call us a " profligate." It may be that we have spent too much money, but it was our own, and honestly earned. But through us, there never has been placed a mortgage upon the lands of our father. Through us, there has never been poverty at home and profligacy abroad. We have worked always, from a boy, and never bor rowed without a fair chalice of repayment If there be a profligate, crazy, drunken ras cal in the State, that man's name is Jo. Turner, JR. The North-Carolina Press. We have observed with a certain degree of amusement, tinctured with indignation occasionally, the articles in certain Repub lican and Democratic journals of this State, in regard to tbe present tone of the press of this State. We have been amused because the Democratic papers were well content with the style ot Mr. Turner's indecent sheet in this City, until we opened fire upon the drunken and depraved rascal who edits it And the Republican papers, who flung up their, hands in horror aroused our indigna tion, because we were of opinion that, li tbey could take care of their own business. they had better do so. The sum of the whole thing is this : that the Standard, like any other good and honest tub, stands on its own bottom ; and as we are not nnder obligations to any cf you, your advice is gratuitous. Certainly we have received but scant credit from our allies, and as to our enemies, they only leg when we use their own scurrilous weapons. The editor oi the Sentinel denominates us as the "impudent son of the Governor." We are impudent to such a pusillanimous block guard as he has proven himself to be. The rail which flew up and struck him on the head was impudent also. We are not satisfied whether Turner or that rail was drunk on the occasion or not But he was drunk at Montgomery Courthouse, atWcnt- worth and at Greenville, in Pitt County, when be defiled himself. The impudent and drunken rascal ought to be kicked out of decent society, and put to bed with some of his colored allies in the Kuklux cause, who are sleeping in the Penitentiary here at Raleigh. It would have been the fate of his brother had not Governor Holdcn suc ceeded in obtaining a pardon for him, Led- better and other criminals. Besides we have been informed that this same Turner bas seen another brother go to jail, without appearing either as his bonds manor as his counsel. So much at the present for the drunken rascal. We advise the North Carolina press to keep silent So far as the Republicans are concerned, we tell them that we intend to fight it out. So far as the Democrats or Con servatives arc concerned, we say that if you feel that you need a gentleman here to con- duct your leading organ, send him . here, and he shall have fair play. An eye for an eye. a blow for a blow, a life for a life that all, and under the circumstances you ongh to expect from us at least no less. Declined. As we announced on yesterday ex-Gov. B. Vance has declined the nomination the Democratic party for Mecklenburg County, and this action on : his part is mainly owing to tbe outspoken article in recent issue of the Old North State. In declining Gov. Vance says that " he is not satisfied that he was ineligible to scat in the Legislature nnder the 14th amend mcnt," and that he had been so advised ; but as that body had hitherto declared differ ently that in order to prevent wrangling, he refused to run, &c. Now, with his usual perversion of facts, Gov. Vance has attributed a decision to our Legislature, which wot made by Congress. He knew well that if there was a majority of unbanned Conservatives, rebels or Euklux in the Legislature, and the decision de pended on them, that they would admit him ; and ho knew as well that, if there was a majority of Republicans, that he would not be admitted, because the Repub licans observe their fealty to the govern ment, and dare to reject traitors, when they present themselves for admission, of what ever station in life they may be. Gov. Vance has, therefore, backed before Federal authority. He is a typo of a class of men in this State violent men, who seek to get control of the State government, but who fear Federal authority. We tell him, and we tell his followers, that the authority of the Federal government is pledged to the support ot this State, and that they will never more get control of it Gov. Vance was one of the violent men nominated by the Conservative party of this State. His retirement docs not benefit bis cause. His nomination has shown the ani mus of a portion of the people of Mecklen burg, as other nomiaatiang have shown the violent spirit of rebels in other portions of the State: t) But we are whipping tliem in. jThey had determined to resort to violence. .The Governor has determined to meet' that vio-' lence with weapons sufficient to compete with it in any field of action. ' Now they resort to craft and cunning. The Sentinel advises them to be " as wise as serpents and as harmless as.doves. Gov. v ance aecunes ana gives way. i.uey nomi nate colored, nicn, iu, yariouscoun ties, . and tbey seek to carry their purposes with a hid den hand. ' .' ,. ' , ' .' ', We tell them that it is too lata Their charges of corruption have' come home to their own doors. Their crimes call aloud for vengeance. Their arguments disappear like vapor in the light of the sun of truth. Their bullies and their hectors give way before late and authority, and tbey are marshalling their forces for an ultimate and ignominious defeat." :: . : . ; . .i - : ' i:v-'- - We give Gov. Vanco no credit ' for re tirement. The people who nominated him as their champion the violent men will give him no credit, and neither will violent men throughout tbe State, who applauded his Sodom and Gomorrah oration. He had better have run through, for he had no chance to take his seat, at Congress had taid he should not, aud the Constitution had said so, and three-fourths of the States had said so, but he could have accomplished one object perhaps have made himself a mar tyr, and become a great man in the eyes of all, who would have said, ," had Vance been in the Senate, such things would not have been done." But he has voluntarily laid down the crown of glory, and-itrs.no lpngcr Ad-Vance, but Shoo-fly; Vance,-don't bodder me. ' .-. . . .... The Bill to Enforce the XVth Amend. ment. The First Trial Under its Pro visions. . ; . f - " ; - See. 0. And be it further enacted, That If two or more persons shall band: or conspire to gether or iro in disguise upon tho public high way, or upon the premises of another, with in tent to violate any provision of this act, or to mi are, oppress, tureaten, or intimidate any citi zen with intent to prevent or hinder bis free ex ercise and enjoyment of any right or privilege granted or secured to bitn by the Constitution oi laws oi tne unitea states, or because oi bis having exercised the same, snch person shall be held guilty of felony, and, on conviction thereof. shall be lined or imprisoned, or both, at tbe discretion of the court tbe fine not lo exceed five thousand dollars, and the imprisonment not to exceed ten years and shall moreover, be ineligible to, and disabled from boldlng any office or place of honor, profit, or trust cre ated by the Constitution or laws of the United states. The above section should be read to every Republican and Conservative in this State, that he may know what the government of the United States has determined to do for tbe suppression of Enkluxism in this country. At a recent trial in this City four men were brought before the U. S. Commissioner, charged with whipping an old colored man because he voted the Republican ticket They were bound over in the ' sum of $3,000 each, and have since given bonds. We learn that all their sureties are sol vent men, though some of the accused had to wait under confinement a day or so, before the papers could be made out. They proved a lame alibi. This is their dodge. We don't believe them at all They may be in nocent, but because they offer an alibi we believe them to be guilty, because every Euklux tries to prove an alibi; and are these men exceptions t If they arc, they are the first who are. . .', The grand jury of Gaston has failed to present Euklux cases. The grand jury of Lincoln, Caswell, Rockingham, Orange, Le noir, Jones, Sampson, Moore, Wake, and other counties have also failed to make such presentments, or to find any bill of indict ment against them. The Solicitors labor in vain. Tbe Judges expound the law, but perjury rides triumphant, and crime is shcl torcd.by crime from detection or punishment We learn that Mr. Ramsour, of Catawba,' appeared before Judge Mitchell ; that he swore to the men, who abused him; that they proved an alibi; and that the Judge dismissed the case. Is this true ? If it is wo censure Judge Mitchell and say that we look not for further justice at his hands, against the Euklux ; because, as little as we know of the law, we know this that it was his duty to bind them over on Mr. Ram sour's complaint, and let them prove their alibi beforeajury and not before a judge. Meanwhile, it would be well for Mr. Ram sour, who has not found redress of grievan ces at the hands of Judge Mitchell to appeal tda United States Commissioner. ' If he can swear that the scourging given to him was intended to intimidate him as a voter, let him do so at once. The federal courts will supply the place of the Euklux judge and juries of this State. However, we have little faith in civil law against men, who disregard civil law and are sworn to disregard it Six feet of rope, a short shreft, and a clean drop will answer the purpose. That is the remedy. Let it be applied at once. Washington, D. C, July 1, 1870. Wm. R. Richardson, Private Secretary to Gov. Holdcn : Gov. Holden and Senator Pool had a long and very satisfactory interview with the President yesterday. The President approves the Governor's course, and pledges the moral, and if necessary, physical support of the Government to maintain law and order in North-Carolina. Two extra companies or dered to the State. Stephen A. Douglas, Jr., , Aid to the Governor. . It will be pceu from the above dispatch that all which we have said in regard to the the General Government is true. It will be seen moreover, that notwithstanding tbe charges of tyranny and military despotism, preferred against Gov. Holdcn, that no man is further from the exercise of unlawful au thority than he is ; and that he has waited until patience has ceased to be a virtue. In our opinion he should deal with these Euklux in a summary manner. There is no use in attempting to intimidate them. They must be punished, or annihilated. For they are with us always, lo, even unto the ends of the earth until they are disbanded or properly punished. 1 : -' ,; , General Grant has. ordered two additional companies to this State. It is not said whether they arc cavalry companies or not, but we hope that they arc. Of such troops, to patrol after the Euklux, much good may be expected. ' ! 1 :'..'' s It is not intend from all that we can gath er to intimidate, but to punish the Euklux. These men, who form that organization, fall back upon the Constitution of the State for protection. So let it be. The Constitution guarantees to tbcm a short, swift and a speedy punishment The militia and United States troops will execute the laws, in the fear or favor of no man. ' Gov. Holdcn will return to this State thrice armed with power. The struggle be fore us is no ordinary one. So great has the pressure been that the whole country has perceived tho necessity of action, , Let us have it One blow will do more good than a thousand empty threats. The nation is with us. We realize it Then peace and quiet shall reign.in Alamance as well as in Caswell. From all pasts of the State wo have tidings of accessions to the Republican ranks. Such men" as' Badger," Green and others are . continually joining our party. On the other band, we learn that the Demo cratic party has made one convert iu North Carolina, and that is Mr. A. B. Williams, colored, of Raleigh. We congratulate the Democrats upon the conversion ot Mr. Wil liams. " Let us nave peace " nou. The Branch Mint at Charlotte, f - I We learn that it is CQntemplatol to abol ish tbe present Branch Mint, at Charlotte, N. C. In order to show reasons, why this action should no bl taken on the part of Congress, we append the following letter from tbe Hon. Dr. M. Bomnger, Who is well acquainted with the resources of that region, and with the value ot the Mint to the coun-tryaHarge.- , . , t r ; This building is one of the few vainablo public institution erected JJ ibjSaaeral Government in this State. Properlj con ducted it will surely pay, year by year, every dime of money that may be expended upon As a matter of State pride and Because of its National value, we believe that' our Representatives should exert themselves for lie retcuuuu, . Mr. Barringer, we believe, is actuated, in this matter by the very best motives. ;,He ie thoroughly acquainted with the mineral re sources of this State, and bis suggestions art descrying of great weight and all due con sideration. We invite attention to hisksttor, which reads as follows:. i n ! : -" ' ' Raleigh, N. CT,:. v'f ";, ' 'June 21th, 1870. , Hon. Calvin J. Cowxes, , ,,- . Dear Sir: In the casual conversation I ad with you recently. I rccretted t hear you express the fear that the Branch Mint at Charlotte, now under your euro migus possibly be abolished by Congress u I- . ttt i f -1 . l ... : : n u:j I Having oeeii ramiusr wnu u uig", " tory and usefulness to all that region of tbe State and a large part of South Carolina, and especially its value in stimulating and Assisting the development of the numerous gold mines ot that region, I should regard it as a public misfortune, and a most nowise policy to abolish it now. It would be im possible in a brief letter to enlarge upon its importance and benefits to the people. ' Vou are lamiliar with the policy which created the Branch Mint,1 at Charlotte, by act of Congress, March- 8rd, 183d, appropri ating . $50,000 for that purpose. It went into operation in 1837 was destroyed by fire in July 1H4A, and rebuilt in 1845-'6, at an expense of some $40,000. I was in Congress in 1844-'S from the Mecklenburg district; when an unavailing attempt was made to abolish the Mint which had so recently been destroyed with most ot its machinery &c. But I succeeded in get ting an appropriation to rebuild it, and it re mained in successful operation till the break ing out of the war, with increasing patron age, and usefulness to the public ' -' . You will find a full report of all the pro ceedings then had in the House of Repre sentatives in the Congnuional Globe, pages 223 4-5, Feb. 21st 1845, 2nd session, 28th Congress. The debate will show yon all the reasons then urged for and against the appropriation and furnish yon some addi tional statistical information. Few persons, even among as in North Carolina, have any correct idea of the value and extent of our gold mines, or of the min ing interest in general in the South. Up to 1860 North-Carolina, alone, had deposited in tbe mints (Principal and Branch at Char lotte) $0,178,627.27, and it is estimated that an equal amount, without reaching the mints, passed into commerce, and into the hands of manufacturers, particularly jewel ers, who sought to secure the washings of tho alluvial deposits of gold on account of their greater purity and malleability, bo that North-Carolina has credit for nearly one-half of the whole gold product of the Atlantic slope. See report of the Commis sioner of the General Land Office, 1 807, pages 181-2-3. It will not be in my power to write sepa rate letters to members of Congress, but yon are at liberty to use this, and the informa tion it contains, with such of them as you may wish, and especially such of my former associates as may desire my opinion on the subject I sincerely hope that the small appropri ation asked for, only about $4,800, 1 think yon told me, may be made to continue the limited operations now conducted at the Mint, and that ultimately, when wo return to a specie circulation, it may be fully equip ped, and, as of old, made to contribute its share to the coinage of the country. And I believe this is tbe almost universal wish of the people of our State. ' I remain very truly, yours &c, D. M. Barbinobb. The Axekican Advocate is the title of a new Republican paper published at Salem, N. C, and edited by -Walter Dunn, Esq. We make several extracts from the Advocate to-day. It is one ot the best papers in the State, and will do good service in the approaching contest Mr. Dunn is an able writer, well-informed concerning tho politi cal condition of this State, and in every way capable of conducting the journal of which he has taken charge. We predict for him immediate as well as permanent success. We append the following salutatory of the editor of the Advocate: Salutatory.

Having moved our family, and our little all of this world's goods to Salem, for tbe purpose ot securing a healthful and a per manent residence, so is our enterprise de signed for a permanent one. To the lovers of law, order, peace and prosperity we look confidently for its sustenance and support To that "noble army of martyrs," the " press gang," we extend a friendly greeting, hoping to maintain that almost uniformly amicable relation which we formerly sus tained towards them during the seven years we were connected witn the press bctore the war.

' 1 ' ' We tell the Hillsboro' Secorder, that at the proper time, it will be proven 'that the Kuklux killed Stephens. We ask that paper, why does it seek to cost a stain upon the name of the dead mnn, who is now unable to defend himself, by calling out "who killed Mrs. Stephens?" Shame upon you. There is a time for all things ; and if there had been proof, or tbe taint of a proof of foul play in the death of the old lady, such men as Eerr and Hill would have seized it, and made away with Stephens. - i : ' . The Secorder knows the malevolence of the men to whom we refer, and it knows further that tbey have never wept a tear over the grave of the dead Senator. And it is our opinion also, that such men as they are, are the men who first asked the question who killed Mrs. Stephens? We deny that she was liUed. Will the Hillsboro' Secor der say that she was S If so, where is the proof! Assertion without proof is worth nothing. j So far as the negro Kuklux arc concern ed, we have to say this that they imitated the white scoundrels in Alamance. Like begets like, and the Democrats have said that the colored man is very good at imita tion, but that he has no inventive genius. , The Secorder knows further that we stand ready to denounce Euklux, white or black. But it is strange, that while Orange County is full of Kuklux, and white Kuklnx, that no one has been convicted. Only the negro has come in for his share thus far. The white murderers, and thieves, and assassins, have escaped. Can the Secorder explain this ? We tell it why they have escaped through PERJURY. Bnt who hung Outlaw! Did any of these colored Euklux, as they arc called, who imitated white assassins, have a hand in the deed ? Where is the proof? It was insinuated tbat they did. ' It is now insinu ated that the colored Euklux killed Ste phens. We do not believe it in truth, we know it is false. In due time, the facts will be made public. The Coxiosbioners of tub Peniten tiary HAVE BEEN IN SESSION the last two days of June at their office at this place. There was no important business before them only the routine monthly appoint ments to vacancies and examination of tne prisoners. There arc at the present time 1G3 convicts in tbe prisons several will be discharged within a few months their term of imprisonment being terminated. An order was made authorizing the Deputy Warden to receive all convicts sentenced for three years or longer until further notice. The Sheriffs of tho several Counties having convicts so sentenced can take them forth with to the Penitentiary. A momant's re flection will show any one the reason for this limitation. The Commissioners are limited in the number of cell houses. Only a definite number can be employed by them ; and, further, the means at their command for the several purposes of their commission are so limited in amount as to make it im possible for them to take charge of all the convicts of the State. So soon as the rep resentatives of the people will furnish means adequate, the Commissioners will cheerfully do all in their power to relieve the Counties of the burden of the support of their con victs. Until this is done it is not fair to blame them. The condition of the prison is excellent There is scarcely any sickness among the prisoners. Indeed,the whole of the officers are very diligent in the discharge of their re spective duties, and perhaps no young pri son has been so successful in its choice of men. The entire work of the prison is perform ed by tbe convicts, and the cheerful and en ergetic manner in which they labor, and their manageable disposition, is the admira tion of all the visitors. Quite a number are employed now in the quarry, and also in grading the track for the " turn-out", from the railroad; and in putting down tho sills and iron. 1 11 " ' In a few days as soon as the material can be had the railroad will be finished, and then tho serious work of building will com mence by delivering the brick, moving the rock from the quarry, and by laying the foundation of the cells. Mr. Coleman, of the firm of Coleman Brothers, is busy in tho quarry, and plenty as fine rock as we ever saw. This is one of the public works of the State to which we can point with pride. Tho commission are giving their untiring efforts to its rapid advancement ' They have an immense duty resting upon them, not only for the erection of the prison edi fice, but also for the management and con duct of the prisoners. They labor without reward in this great work of humanity and it is to be regretted that they so seldom are cheered by the kind words of those who direct public opinion. . We wish every Caro linian could visit i he institution. Could see the order and neatness of the prisoners and their cells. Could see the industry of the prisoners. . Could walk over the site and visit the quarry.' -;.' Coir Kirk. - We have again the most cheering intelli gence from tbe operations of this intrepid soldier. The '. Republicans of the West Bhould stand by him to a man, and those in the East, who dare to defame him and join in the cowardly assaults upon his character, made by rebels, ought to be marled. There is but one way, and that is to support the .State and ' National administrations. Onr eyes are upon its open as well as its secret enemies. 'No rogue ever felt the baiter drew With good opinion of the law I" .v., i uneering news irom me new t We have received the following letter from a Western gentleman, who is thor oughly in accord with the sentiments oijthe Union men of that region of the State, the letter indicates the spirit of the Western Republicans, the men, who took their lives in their bands and defended the old flag, during tbe late war. : they were noChiehed out 'o tho". Union like Jo. f urner, and tnero bas been no neca to" Kdfc thern in igalnT- But they aro deter mined to kick such trash into tho Union or to kick them out of it forever. The letter says:. . " ' Bakebsvtlle, June 27th, 1870. " Hon. Jo. W. Holden, : Dear Sir .-Colonel G. W. Eirk is in this connty recruiting a regiment for the State service, tie wiil have nis command reiuiy by Thursday hext,(this is Monday.) The bovs in Mitchell are volunteering; willingly and coming op nobly. ' Mitchell connty, if necessary; will raise 400 men in a week. The fact is Union oica up here are " anxious for tho fray," and have put up with about as much as they can bcar.! ' Tbcy have been lenient and fonrivine and have treated these rebels kindly, but all to no purpose, and Stbcy have determined that " If neither words nor grass will do, tney win try wuai virtue there is in stones." ; , ! Tbe Union men are well-pleased with the Governor, they are determined to stand by him. I tell yon this is no idle boast. J know what I say, and "whereof I speak." I On yesterday, (Sunday'), thirty-one stout. able-bodied youug men were enrolled in at least one hour in our village. The rebels are rather "down in the mouth," and many of them already begin to "fear and tremble." j I think the Governor acted wisely in giv ing CoL Kirk a commission ; he is the Tight man in the right place ; the rebels have not forgotten the name of "Eirk ;" be will put lue K, K. tbrough, certain. . k Stand Arm. tbe State KOvettinwnt--aiett and shall be preserved and sustained, and voo will find that the Union men will not be backward in doing so. j ,; j . Granville Connty. I j We learn that at the recent Conservative pow wow in Oxford, which nominated L. C. Edwards, Esq., for the Senate, tbat there was a row, wherein several prominent Con servatives were engaged, among them Mr. Edwards himself. ', The meeting was a scene of confusion, disgraceful in the extreme. Mr. Edwards is mustering his forces for a Waterloo dcteat. ! He denied upon the occasion, we under stand, that little judgeship matter of his. But it came home to him. If our recollec tion serves us well, and we believe that it docs, Mr. Edwards did expect a judgeship from Provisional Governor Holden, tho place, which Judge Gilliam held; and failing in that, he sought a federal office, under the same influences. When the shoe pinches, Mr. E., you ought not to wince so much. The truth hurts you and you show it. Hon. A. II. Jones. The nomination of Hon. A. H. Jones for Congress in the 7th District, by the Repub lican party, has been received with univer sal approbation, and as we are informed, he will once more defeat his competitor, Mr. Durham, by a handsome majority. Mr. Jones is an original Union man, one who suffeied exile for his sentiments during the war, and who bos never faltered since that time. He has been elected to Congress from his district three times,. once under the reconstruction policy of Andrew Johnson, a second time under the first election ordered by Congress, and a third time in the election of 1868. He bas the confidence of the Republicans of the Wcsti as bos been evidenced by his career, and will retain it for many years to come . The Difference. i The Republicans of North-Carolina met in open convention and nominated Hon. S. F. Phillips for Attorney Gcueral. The dele gates to this convention were appointed by the people of the State, and not the politi cians. On the other hand, the Conservative poli ticians in tho late Legislature held a secret caucus, appointed a State Executive Com. mittcc, compose! of old broken down poli ticians, and this committee met in secret conclave, and put forth the name of W. M. Shipp. Mr. Phillips is the people's candi date. Mr. Shipp is the politicians' candi. date The people will see to it that their candidate is triumphantly elected. Complimentary to Maj. W. A. Smith. We have just seen some resolutions adopted at a regular meeting of the Columbia, S. C, Typographical Union, from which we ex tract the following: "Whereas, favors have been extended to Columbia Typographical Union No. 84 by the various rulroadscompnsing the princi Dal route hence to Cincinnati ; and whereas it is proper that a suitable expression of our appreciation oi sucn iavors snouiu oe con veyed to those granting them in a becom ini? manner : Therefore, be it Sesolved, That the thanks of Columbia Typographical Union No. 84 are especially due, and are hereby tendered, to Maj. W. A. Smith. President of the North Carolina Railroad Company, for the free passage of our delegate over his roaa to ana irom tne Eighteenth Session of tbe International Tvnopi-aDliical Union, and for the expres sion on his part of interest in the welfare of .. .. our organization, as wen as ior tne iniorma- uon furnished in regara to oincr roaus. Josiah Tcrner, Jr., was formerly in tho habit ot furnishing a paper over Pepper's counter for a drink, and the bar-keeper knows it Let us have tho account, or has the ac count been settled ? . We know that such were the instructions to the bar-keeper, not only drinks but board and all. He used to take dinner there, and three glasses of ale per week ! And so far as the bar-keeper knew, he paid it by subscriptions for the Sentinel and local notices. Such is the bull-calf of the Democratic party. How do respectable journalists, who pay their liquor -bills iu cash, regard him t Gov. Holden. T,his gentleman, accompanied by Messrs. Young, Jones, Carrow and Douglas, left for Washington City on Tuesday night, on busi ness of importance. The party will be ab sent for some days. The Congressional Canvass. We are authorized to say for Messrs. Har ris and Hawkins that they are prepared to canvass with Messrs. Rogers and Gilliam and that tbey await a definite answer upon this point The campaign will soon open. The Re publican candidates are ready to divide time with their opponents I Will Messrs. Rogers and Gilliam shirk tbe challenge? We await their reply. The Jefferson Times of the 23d, says that "Mr. j. F. Logan has just returned from Raleigh, and informed us that the building of the Turnpike Road from Ba kersvillc via Jefferson to Sparta bas been awarded to the lowest bidders on each mile, and that the Superintendent of Public Works will be on the line in two or three weeks to take bonds and give obligations." Col. Lewis Hanes. The able and un answerable argument of Col. Lewis Hancs in the last number of the Old North State in opposition to the Graham theory that per sons banned are still eligible to a scat in the Legislature, has spiked the guns of such men as Gov, Vance, and will keep him from be ing candidate lor the State Senate. r The Sentinel again endeavors to answer the question as to "who killed Senator Stephens f, ; We reply that the Kuklux lUd it, and defy contradiction. All other stories about old negro men, or any other men, are simply false. The Euklux killed Bttpnens, ana mougn they deny it, nevertheless it is so, ana tne murder will out Let the Sentinel squirm and wnggle. Its ipologies for assassination, liko curses and chickens are coming name to roost " Who is the King of the Kuklux ? He hud a hand in Senator Stephens' murder, for is not this the house that Jack built ' Alamance Codntt. The following is the Citiaen's ticket for; Alamance County, nominated In Convention on the 15th day of June. ;t Graham ;, For the House, Stephen A. White; for Sheriff. J, C.

A Patterson, and Andrew Murray, Jr. It is jexpected that this ticket will bo elected by a large majority. It is composed of moderate and truly Conservative men, who are friends to peace and order. Bad Books and Papers. The Suptrin tendenta of all ho Railroads in the State of Connecticut have prohibited the sale on their cars or in their stations of all immoral papers or books. Will not the Superinten dents of Railroads in North Carolina ulso combine to suppress this growing evil? If tbey will do so, they will receive the thanks 'of all rL,ht thinking people in the State, and we are sure our newsdealers would also join in the Htawme, - Wlwit- wiy- you,j.cnt tc men ? Ton have made yoursclvs an envia ble reputation in your efforts to protect the lives of the travelling public, will yon not add to that reputation by an effort to pro tect their morals ? Good for Mecklenbuuo. The Char lotte Observer says : " An old citizen of Charlotte, who has not travelled over this county much since the war, has recently hud occasion to make an extended trip through the creater portion of the county, and ho gives a glowing description of the conui tion of things. He was surprised at the en ergetic and hopeful spirit of our fanners, and the improvements they are making on their farms, in the way of improved imple mcnts of agriculture, improved methods of culture and improvements in buildings. The farm houses have a cheery and heart- some appearance, numbers of them having just received a fresh coat of paint, and the out buildings are secure and in good repair, and tho fences aro well kept up." St. John's Day in Salem. The Winston Sentinel says : " Salem Lodge celebrated St John's day last Friday, and notwithstanding the very busy season of the year the atten dance was large and respectable, and every thing passed off to the satisfaction of the Lorlnr. and fraternity generally. The ser vices of the Salcin Band were secured, an marched at the head of the- procession the public square, where the Rev. Dr. Reid made one of the ablest efforts of his life m lecture on the " True Mission of Masonry. Dr. Craven, President of Trinity College, had been invited to attend and deliver an ad dress, and had promised to do so, but una voidable circumstances prevented his atten dance, which was a considerable disappoint ment to the fraternity aud the public at large, who assembled in large numbers in the evening to hear bim, but bis place was filled by Rev. Mr. Blogg, of Baltimore, and Dr. Reid." Important to Distillers. Under the new regulations for the distillation of Bran dy, published elsewhere in this paper, it will bo seen that the following are the terms re quired of the distiller : First, to register his still "for use;" Second, to give notice of intention to distil ; Third, to file with the Assessor a bond of not less than five hun dred dollars; Fourth, to pay a special tax of $37.50 from August the 1st, and fifty cunts upon each gallon distilled. All spirits must be put in packages of not less than ten gallons, and said packages must be guageil and marked by the United States Guager. Health Officer. If we have a health officer, where is he? If wc have not, then the duty falls on the Chief oi Police to en force the ordinance of the City in regard to health. It is certainly some one's duty, and we now ask why the ordinance compelling parties to keep their back yards Clean, is not enforced ? Wake up ! Somebody is asleep, or got a bad cold and can't smell, or blind and can't see, one of the three things certain, for otherwise he would have found some of the places we found. ' Now from all appearances wc think it will soon be warm, and think justice to the citizens this matter ought to be attended to immediately. National Educational Convention. Wc again direct tbe attention of persons in North-Carolina who desire to attend the Na tional Educational Convention at Clcavc land, Ohio, on the 15th and 10th of August, to notify Hon. S. S. Ashley, Superintendent of Public Instruction, at once, stating at what stations they will take the cars. The North-Carolina Railroad, the Atlantic & North-Carolina Railroad, and the Wilming ton & Weldon Railroad, will issue round trip tickets for one fare, and by writing Mr. Ashley half-fare tickets can be had from Philadelphia to Cleveland. Parties attend ing the Convention can obtain entertain ment at private boarding houses for $1.00 to $1.50, and at hotels for $2 to $3 per day. 1 We find the following in one of our ex changes, and publish it thinking it may be of interest to some of our readers : ' "The return of the season for gathering fruits and preparing them for market makes it our duty to offer some suggestions to fruit raisers. To bring the best prices, ap ples ought to be sliced thin; taking out the core. ' There arc simple, cheap machines for doing this at a great saving of labor ; but avoid tbat machine which cuts the apples into rings. They are scarcely saleable in that shape. They should be dried a bright straw color, taking care to keep them from wet Peaches should be peeled and cut lengthwise of the peach, and great care ought to be taken to dry them bright The smallest quantity of stones mixed with peeled or unpcelcd peaches injures the sale. Blackberries must be dried thoroughly with out breaking them." It IS A LITTLE REMARKABLE that whilst wc were being drenched and flooded with storm and rain a few weeks post, the people of France and England wcrceuffcring terri bly from a protracted drouth. In those countries, in many places, the fodder has dried up, the gross has withered, cattle per ish for the want of water, and all the crops are reported in a failing and dying con dition. . Wchave heard some of the "weather wise " predict that wc are now to have a drouth ; but we arc more hopeful, for, even while wc write, wc observe in thcatmos phere and clouds some indications of more rain. ' A Frienp living at Trap Hill, in Wilkes county, informs us that on the 19th of juno a disastrous hall-storm visited that section.
