Public Meeting ib Morehead City.
We learn from a gentleman who was pres
ent, that on Thursday last, after the ad
journment of the Convention called to nom
inate candidates for the Senatorial dis
trict, composed of the counties of Craven
and Carteret, held at Morehead City, Hon.
C. R. Thomas, candidate in the second Con
gressional district for the 42d Congress, and
Jos. H. Dixon, Esq., candidate to fill the un
expired term of the late Hon. David Heaton,
addressed a meeting organized i for the pur
pose of hearing them. The meeting was
composed of white and colored voters in
about equal proportion.
The speech of Judge Thomas his open
ing speech of the campaign, upon which he
has now fairly entered is represented as a
dignified, temperate and able effort. He
was listened to with undivided attention.
He predicted a larger majority in the State
for the Republican party than it achieved
in the last campaign, and stated his belief in
carrying the second Congressional district
by even a larger majority than was given
the late lamented Col. Heaton. Speaking
to a people amongst whom he was born and
raised, Judge Thomas needed no effort to
impress his candid statements upon his
hearers. Our informant states that the
.. Judges' speech , was one of the most im
pressive character, and was so regarded by
Mr. Dixon was heard by the people of
Carteret on this occasion for , the first time
and made a good impression. ,.IIc is an ear
nest, bold and strong speaker, and will gain
strength as he progresses.
This meeting was subsequently addressed
by Col. Wm. J. Clarke and R. F. Lehman,
Esq., candidates for the State Senate an the
Newbcrnc district.' Onr readers are familiar
with the oratorical powers of Col. Clarke.
On this occasion he fully maintained his
reputation. ' - t-r-i
Mr. Lehman, however, like Col 'Dixon
;. was comparatively new to his audience. He J
is a na)s speaker ana will prove an ornament
to our State Legislature. As a gentleman,
Mr. L. stands deservedly high in the estima-
tion of all who"" know him. He has been
identified with our people for more than
fifteen years and will faithfully guard their
interests. Of his election and that of Col.
Clarke there is no sort of doubt.
The following s the ticket for the Legis
lature in this county :

V "What Does it Mean ? C.
Yesterday's ScntinePcont&im an address
to the people of North-Carolina by Thomas
Bragg, Chairman of the Executive Commit-"
tee of the Democratic party, which is pro
fessedly called forth by the military move
ment In which address the question is
asked, "What does it mean ?" We ask in
return, what does this address mean ? There
is no doubt about what the military move
means. It has been set forth in a proclama
tion of the Governor of the State, and still
more emphatically by the President of the
United States. It means that these outrages
committed shall cease, and that those who
ate guilty of them shall be punished. Now
what docs yonr address mean ? . Have these
disorders been committed by your party ?
or have they been committed without regard
to party ? Your address says " acts of law
less violence, it is true, have occasionally
been committed, but these have been con
fined to neither of the political parties." It
that be true, then the military is not directed
against any party but against both parties
alike, or rather against the outrages.
You don't think these outrages ought to be
continued, or go unpunished, do you?
What makes you try to undcrate these out
rages ? "occasionally committed !" Why,
you know they count hundreds. You know
that, in character, they are odious whip
ping, murder, and rape, and, really, some of
them are crimes without names. If such
things are not by hundreds, but only occa
sionally, still, don't you want them put
down Put them down by the civil author
ity, you say. Why, Mr. Bragg, this is
no time for party political clap
trap !,.,. Can you look upon '. assassina
tion and rape, and not c i&DTed' Instead
of' warming up and feeling like' a'man, and
talking like a man, and saying these out
rages shall be put down,, and men and
women shall lie down and sleep in safety, if
the whole power and wealth of the govern
ment has to be brought against them, you
sit down and count its cost, and say "it will
entail and enormous expense upon our al
ready overtaxed people.". Suppose it docs.
You have made us very poor, Gov. Bragg,
by a long and useless war, and we had no
outrages to redress ; but as poor as we are,
there is no man so poor or that hugs his
purse so close, but yourself, as to put a price
upon assassination and rape. Do you not feel
these things, thought they be only occasion
al ? How much outrage to men and women,
to property, life and liberty, would it take
to unloose your purse? "Enormous ex
pense !" Why nations have declared war
for the outrage of a single one of its citi
zens ! If the mighty power of England weie
to outrage a single man or .woman who
bore the name of an American citizen, the
whole power and wealth of America would
be pledged for redres3. Yet you have no
word of denunciation even for the greatest
outrages upon hundreds. You are so insen
sible to it even, that a multitude seems but
"occasional." There must bo some reason
for this. You are a man of education and
intelligence. You have occupied the high
position of Governor of the State. Outside
of your political animosities, you are not
thought to lie a bad man. What is the se
cret of your weakness for these outrages. It
all appears in your address. In accounting
for the outrages, you say, "they have been
owing, in a great degree, to the state of the
times and society in which we live, and
doubtless in no small degree to the mitgov-
eminent under ichich our people have suffered.
and still suffer." Did it occur to vou that
this was an admission that your political
friends have committed the outrages ?
Clearly it is. "It is owing to the misgovem
nient nndcr which our people have suffered
and are suffering." Dothcfiiends of the Gov
ernment complain that they arc misgoverned.
No. Do your friends? Yes. Then, accor
ding to your own showing, your friends are
the guilty parties. Yes, they arehe guilty
parties. Yoi(knP.w it--everybody knows
it. xicnce your neaKucfis lor tneuj ,-iience
you don't want the military to hurt them;
hence you paliate their crimes. Of course,
as a general rule, they are the friends of the
government who arc outraged. Hence you
cannot sympathize with thom. What if
there are "occasionally" outrages? Let
them be ' They deserve it ! It will cost
too much to protect them ! You have been
Governor of this good State. Did such
outrages prevail when you were Governor?
If they had, we -isk you what would you
have done? If it had been certified to you
as Governor that in many counties organ
ized bands of disguised men were going
about at night outraging hundreds of jour
citizens, and putting whole communities in
terror, without one single conviction in
court, what would you have done ? We
beg y'ou not to say that you would have
looked into the treasury, and made it a
matter of dollars and cents. Every man
and women would have depised your calcu
lations. And again, we beg you not to say
that you would have stopped to consider
whether your political friends were the
marauders. Don't say anything less than
that you would have thrown the whole
power of the State against it.
Your address denounces the military as to
be composed of the " worst material in the
State.'" What makes you think so ? When
volunteers are called for to defend men and
women, do you know so little of the people
of North-Carolina as to suppose that only
the " worst " will respond ? If you were
younger would not you. respond if it did
not cost too much ? or unless your friends
were in jeopardy ? It ill becomes those who
stay at home and count dollars and cents to
say so. It is not true that the military are
the "worst material." When there is op
pression, real or supposed, those who have
hearts bound forth to resist it without cal
culating the "enormous expense" or the
personal hazard. It will lie so now. Un
less the people of North Carolina and the peo
ple ot the United States have lost the spirit
of men and patriots, and organized bands
of disguised marauders will be exterminated.
In appealing to your own party friends,
you say'Ict no jirngnfBtinn, if ,jf nnn pmnl
bly be avoided, driv,c yon into any violent
measures to redress your' wrongs." ' Why,
what can that mean ? The United States
and this State send out troops to protect all
the citizens alike, without regard to party
or race, or condition, and instead of rcgret
ing and denouncing the cause, you exhort
your friends to bear with U if it be possible.
Not use violence against it, if it is possible
to avoid it . Tin's is a little improved since
the fire upon Fort Sumter. It was then.
"If you want to find the Southern heart,
strike a blow." It is the same spirit now,
only a little tamer conmga oeziog out at
the ends of the fingers. Don't be violent if
you can help it. u Don't resort to violent
measures to ledrcss your wrongs.,' Your
wrongs ! What wrongs 1 What wrong is
it to your Democratic party to break up the
Kuklux, and restore safety to the citizens ?
You will let all your secrets out if you put
forward such transparent addresses. If the
disguises which the Kuklux wear were as
thin as yours, they would be more easily
recognized. Wo know that the K. K's are
an organization in the interest of your party
You know -that the only hope of your party
is intimidation. The last elections were
against you by 12,000 and 20,000. That
majority yon hope to put under terror.
It may be that the best of you would pre
fer to do it by umc other means, but it
seems the best of you are determined to do
it by some by auy means.
Again, you are so bent upon keeping up
the terror ot your Kuklux, that you are op
posed to tha military being used even if is
confined, to the aid of the civil authorities,
ajthongh you know the civil authorities are
powerless, and have never, in a single in
stance, been able to punish.;
You ask, " Are these troops to aid the
civil authorities. Hitherto there has been
no resistance to that authority in any part
of the State." Now if that is so, how is it
there has no conviction, although you ad
mit there have been " occasional" outrages !
If one hundred men band .themselves togeth
er to commit crimes in secret, and' pledge
themselves by oath to get on the juries, and
be witnesses, and never let one of their num
ber be convicted, do you say thai is n 3 re
sistance to the civil authorities ? You are a
lawyer and you know better than that. You
would never resort to such subtcrfuges.in
your statements if you did not feet that, no
matter what you say, there is such sympathy
with the ends you aim at, that any means
will be justified. But you are mistaken.
They will use you and despise you. "
If expostulations had not been exhausted,
we would again urge you to cease your mis
chief. Have you not yet brought mischief
enough upon this worn out people ? Is it
not enough that so many of our " worst ma
terial as you call them, have been slain in
battle against the government? Is it not
enough our fortunes arc all gone ? Is is not
enough that our institutions have been de
stroyed ? Is it not enough that you have
prostituted the press to malign every one con
nected with the government ? Is it not
enough that you nurse hatred to the govern
ment under which you live, and teach your
children to hate it ? Is it not enough that
you have made night dreadful, and home in
secure? Will you will you continue to
present to us the alternative of assassination,
'paad a rope'and evcsaJy worse, .JhanUiflset it
worse there be, or a military power to pre
vent and punish them. Do you suppose
that we are'less serfsible to the evils of mili
tary power than you are, or that we do not
feel the burdens of taxation as much as you
do ? Taxation ! Do you cry out taxation !
But for your "rule or ruin," we would never
hai5 fell taxation. Taxation ! It is enough
that yon have mined us with taxes spare
us the torture of having to endure your
false sympathy. What you aim ats not to
relieve us of our taxes, but to get into places
where you can impose and enjoy them.
"Rule or Ruin" is as much your clan-word
now as it was in 1801. The difference is,
that "the chivalry" of (he day then, are the
Kuklux of the night now. You stormed a
giant's castle then ; you storni a poor man's
Address of Wm. M. Shipp, Knklux Can

was an ardent, firm supporter of Gov. Vance

Mr. Shipp is guilty of endeavoring to de
ceive the colored people as to their rights.
He says that the question ot negro suffrage
is settled. That he docs not, nor docs any
Southern man desire to disturb the settle
ment of negro suffrage. We do not know
what Mr. Shipp desires to do, but we do
lcnoiD what lib party will do if they get the
power. They will amend the State and Na
tional Constitutions in such a manner as
will leave the negro disfranchised. Any
party whose main dependence for success is
the Knklux Klan, will not hesitate to adopt
any measures to secure permanent control of
the country. We tell the colored people
that they are not out of the woods yet.
Mr. Shipp has something to say about the
removal of political disabilities. Taking
into consideration the fact that Mr. Shipp
has just been relieved, we' think that com
mon decency would have dictated silence
upon this point. The Republican party is
in favor of the removal of the disabilities of
every man in the State. The Legislature
said so by resolution.
Mr. Shipp does not know of any schools
that have been put in operation. The Su
perintendent of Public Instruction says that
FORTY-THREE Counties have schools
opened. The assertion of Gov. Vance and
Mr. Shipp that no schools have been opened,
falls to the ground. Schools arc being
opened every day. There is moLcy in the
Treasury to establish and keep schools
open in every county four months during
The same hue and cry raised about ex
travagance and corruption by Joe Turner, is
embodied in the address. Mr. Shipp does
not tell his Kuklux friends that the Con
servative members of the Legislature voted
and helped pss the appropriations. He docs
not tell the people that the bonds issued to
the Eastern division of the Western North
Carolina Railroad, were sold by a Democrat.
He does not tell his Kuklnx friends that a
Lgorlionnfl the Jionda issued, to. tlm-WiU
mington, Charlotte & Rutherford Railroad,
were sold by a Democrat! He does not tell
the people that Messrs. Durham, Love and
Welch have been renominated. . He does not
tell the people that these gentlemen voted
for the appropriations, and that they are
Kuklux Democrats. . Wej tell the people
that these men were as deeply in the cor
ruption charged in the Legis'ature, as any
of the members, if there was corruption;
and yet they are re nominated. This is
. Mr. Shipp talks about the military move
ments of Gov. Holden. ne says that the
Courts are open and that there is no use for'
the militia. He docs not tell the people that
life and . property in several counties arc
more unsafe than in the days of the rebel
lion; and that the militia is necessary to
maintain peace and protect life and prop
erty. Instead of trying to put down the
Kuklux Klan Mr. Shipp shuts his eyes to
all the' outrages that have been committed,
and says there is no need for the militia. It
is useless for ns to point at Caswell, Person,
Orange, Lincoln, and many other counties.
The people arc crying aloud for protection,
and they shall have it. ' '
What use was there for the military hire"
lings of your friend Vance, except to over
awe the people and silence free speech ?
There was none.
The militia will protect the people with
out reference to party. The election will
not be interfered with. There will be no
coercion ; but every man will be allowed to
vote as he pleases. Intimidation will' be
removed, and the Kqklux Klan. broken up.
r Now, Mr. Shipp,' you had better make up
your mind that you are .not to be Attorney
General. .; Your address wont, save yon.
You have no claim on the people. You op
posed every attempt to reconstruct the State,
and now you belong to a party whose highest
aim is to overthrow the State and National
Governments. You and your party will fail
at this election as you have failed before,
ami all will bo well So mote it be.
y , - The "lost Cause."
" Many are the songsjnmg in praise of tho
lost cause, many the dirges and many the
odes in praise of its heroes and its temporary
successes. Tiffs subject has been a favorite
one in the bands of a few old fossil politi
cians, many of whom were, as a friend re
marked, 44 peace men U time of war, and war
men .in time of peace." Those who were
neither war men or Unionists, and whose
opinion changed with the days of the
week, are now the most active in this
cry. They did not fight, but confined their
assistance to bombastic speeches, and even
these were not g-von till after the war.
Nay we were Union, have been Union.
Our earliest pulsations were National. No
North, no South, no East, no West, but one
broad country, union and prosperity. But
our heart has and will ever have, a warm
nook for the friends of our yonth, and no
errors of theirs nay errors of ours can
ever make us forget wo have a common
mother, a common country. ; We say
let the bitterness of the war times pass
away. Let the dead past bury its dead.
We have no desiro to recall them. We
would have them forgotten and live again
in peace and harmony. In our Constitution
disfranchising clause we , blotted Ait the
past, and, as fur as was iu our powor; strove
to begin anew. Nay, more, in the last Leg
islature a resolution was passed asking, of
Congress its removal of the disabilities of
every man in ,thc-6tatc. - All this the Re
publican party did towards blotting out the
past. It has ever consistently striven to
bring about good feeling and peace. Still, ,1
while we have the kindest, most generous
feeling toward our opponents, we have the
same" for our friends for ourselves. While
we strive to protect them, we de
mand protection for ourselves, and this
tie will have. We have held ont the right
hand of fellowship and the answer has often
been a blow. Wo turned the other check,
but e'en this would not suffice, and, new,
we must fight We desire but order, peace,
and good will. We ask but to live in secu
rity and harmony with our fcllow-mcn. Give
us this, and we will be content, but this we
must and will have. Peaceably if we can
forcibly if we must.
The necessity ot a militia force, armed
and equipped, at this time, is apparent to
every man who hopes for a speedy dissolu
tion of the murderous Kuklux organization
and a secure restoration of perfect peace,
quiet and safety to persons and property.
We know that there arc some persons in
the Republican party who object to the
action of Governor Holden in calling out
the militia ; and many in the opposite party
who denounce the movement as a hurtful
and evil piece of political strategy.
We could not expect any sort of approval
from the Democratic party ; but we have
this to say to Republicans : If you do not
protect yourselves, you will not be protected.
How can you protect yourselves ? Only by
supporting, upholding and strengthening
the arm nf the Chief Magistrate of the State.
He is a Republican, and a Republican from
principle. He docs not intend to scare, mcn
ancc or scourge any person with the militia.
His object is to prevent scaring, menacing
and scourging. Every man, who has truth
in his heart, knows this. None but polit
ical tricksters endeavor to make the action,
of the Governor odion,.- - t
We know tnat there m m goncnu sentiment
against a military movement on the part of
the government of this State, but this sen
timent would not exist if persons would
only put the two evils in the scale and
weigh them. There is a moral sentiment
against Kuklux violence, and the true souled
men of the Democratic party entertain that
sentiment as well as all Republicans.
What has the Governor to do ? He has
cautioned these Kuklux villains. Caution
did no good. He has really entreated them
to desist. Entreaty did no good. Why
should he leg them ? He should not do it.
ne will not do it. For by so doing he
would only compromise the dignity of one
of the co-ordinate breaches of this great
government, and, at the same time,al!ow the
lives of the citizens of this State to be
further imperilled. Force must be used.
Not " brute force," but a force a little be
yond persuasion and equal to a command.
The future of North-Carolina looks to us
as bright as the noonday's sun in a clear,
unclouded sky. Great in climate and pro
ducts, it is the only State in the Union
which fills up all the captions of the census
taker's list. Somewhere within our borders
any man can suit himself and find the soil
and climate to remind him of his own na
tive home, be it among the snows of the
North, or among our sister Southern States,
whose summer heats are more intense.
With these advantages, it seems passing
strange for the moment that our waste
places are not filled up, our forests cleared
and our streams dotted with farm houses.
Thus it seems to us at first, but on reflection
its cause is plain.
Before the war the t-ystein of labor (ab
ject slavery) discouraged and prevented the
introduction of whites. Emigrants found
no opportunities to invest their small and
hard earned savings in small farms suited
to their capital and capacities. So they
took, their way to the far West and built up
those great States, which a few years ago
were but a wilderness.
The abolition of slavery withdrew these
barriers, and our prospects now' seemed
TirigTiriot'fcastsnafe'Th that golden tide
of emigration which was flowing towards
the setting sun. Again, to a great degree,
we have been disappointed. Why is this?
Because, though lands arc now cheap, and
small farms arc plentiful, still, no men will
come here till perfect security Tor life, pro
perty, and opinion, is guaranteed to all.
This is perfectly plain to .all. Until these
infamous outrages are put down, and the
rascals brought to justice, we may expect
no immigration. When law and order is
onco more supreme, then will our State fill
rapidly up, and become what it should lie

The Second District.
We hoist to-day the names of Joseph
Dixon, of Greene, and Chables Randou-ii
Thomas, Esqs, of Craven, as the Republican
candidates in the '2nd Congressional District
for Congress. We place the names of these
geqtlcmca at our mast-head with unalloyed
pleasure. The; are true, and gtaunrtt
publicans, who have lougtu the. good fight
and have triumphed in the faith. Mr. Dixon
has often represented Greene County in the
Legislature. For years he has battled for
the Union with a courage worthy of all re
compense which he has received. The
county of Greene was the noble pioneer
in the cause of the Union in 1883, when
tho movement against the Jeff. Davis' gov
ernment was inaugurated in this State.
Mrl Dixon - and Mr. Grimsley and
other patriots stood then like a wall of stone
in favor of the Union, ami from that hour
to this, Greene 'has never s-verved from the
path of duty. Her favorite son deserves
the high office which will be bestowed upon
him. Were we in the second district, with

Why Not T
Why will not Messrs. Gilliam and Rogers
meet Messrs. Harris and Hawkins on the
stump ? Why not meet them and discuss
fairly and like men, the questions which
divide the parties ? We have asked this
question before, but the only answer return
ed was " it will create disorder."
It seems then that they admit that there
is adisposition.upon the part of their friends
to "create disorder." But this is no answer
for the Statu government, backed by the
United States government, will see to the
preservation of peace. But it seems there
are other reasons. Mr. Rogers, yesterday
upon the street, expressed his willingness to
meet Mr. Phillips or any other Republican
but Harris. Why will he not meet Mr.
! If it is from any feeling" of generosity and'
from a desire not .,b-bc too hard upon his
opponent, let him discard it at once, for Mr.
Harris asks no such favors he asks nothing
but a fair field andjno quarter. Then we
ask you why will (hey not meet our candi

, The Currency Bill.
The President has approved the Act to
provide a national currency secured by
pipage of United States bonds, and to pro
vide for the circulation . and redemption
thereof," approved June 8, 1864, and the
acts amendatory thereof, and - to amend the
same. It provides for an increase oT nlty-
four millions of bank note currency, retires
forty-five millions of three per cent certi
ficates, redsitributcs twenty-five millions
from the excess held by the North and East
to the South and West, and provides for free
banking on a four per cent gold bond. It
docs not inflate the volume of currency a
dollar. Legal-tender notes will take the
place of the three per cents as the bank re
serve, while the additional bank notes will
supply the place of the legal-tenders thus
withdrawn, to which, however, must be
added twenty per cent, more as reserve for
the aforesaid new issue of bank notes. In
this way the present equilibrium of the
volume of currency is preserved, being
neither contracted nor expanded. Accord

On Friday night a body of Kuklux, dis
guised, came to the house of Wyatt Prince,
near Buckhorn in Chatham County, and de
liberately shot him, inflicting, five severe
wounds. The unhappy man, we understand,
is not expected to recover. No cause was
alleged for the crime.
Last Friday evening Capt. Bosher. Deputy

your address is intended to arouse them.

that no other Governor of the State would

all covertly for the purpose of arousing the

Carolina. Now e deny it in toto. I his

Keith murdered a boy in tho Laurel vai-

for his life. This is the origin of this tale
of horror, and the bigot who edits tho
Southfner has wilfully failed to discrimi
nate between the two men. Keith is a Ji.u-
klux and a murderer. Kirk is a patriot, a
follower of the- glorious Brownlow, ot Ten

mands respect, confidence, and fear, because
he has courage and discretion.
Therefore, we heartily endorse .CoL Kirk.
