Letter from Pasquotank.
Mb. Editor. At jour request for a note
from " good old Pasquotank, where the bull
frogs jump from bank to liank," we thought
we would send you a word of greeting. It
is the case here, as doubtless it is all over
the State; nothing but politics. The only
fault we have to find is, that the pcoplces
pecially the Dcmociats and the disappointed
office-seekers, are too uneasy and take it too
hard when they are disappointed in succeed
ing with their individual plans. They
allow politics to run too high with them. J
There seems to be a lack of principle witu
many of them. They forget that this is a
country where the people rule. That if Viey
say there must be a change with the old in
cumbents, they mean it. We have a few
drones here, who are setting themselves up
as independent candidates for ; positions.
They are bunting up like bubbles in soap
suds, and doubtless will go down as soon.
These men certainly have weak spots in
their craniums to suffer themselves to be
goaded into the idea by the Democrats that
they ought to be the candidates for certain
positions. They forget that the only ob
ject of these Democrats is to get our glori
ous ranks divided, so that they can slip
their men in; but our rank and file arc too
well nnited ; our voters, especially our col
ored voters, are too much accustomed to
supporting the regular ticket to be drawn
offby the whims of disappointed individuals.
Men place too much stress upon positions.
The Democrats have bad their agents at
us, wanting to know il we would lie an in
dependent candidate for Congress; that
they would give us their hearty and unani
mous support, and we would be sure to get
all the colored votes (being of that race
ourselves) &c, &c But our reply was that
we would prefer to see "works meet for re
pentance ;" that il all of them would unite
and support Mr. Cobb, without any
opposition, as heartily as they say
they would support us, and remain
Republicans, voting the true ticket
at every election for five consecutive years,
then we might think about them. They
need not think tbey can lead us into their
hornets' nest. It sounds too much like the
snidcr's parlor into which the fly was invi
ted. No, sir, we love too well the party
which has given us our freedom ; which has
raised us to the full standard ot citizenship ;
we love too well the verses of Elliott's :
' Bcbuld where late a chattel stood,
With woful look and weary hands,
And back all seared with scare and blood,
A proud enfranchised sovereign stands."
We mean to whip these fellows at the
next election just as surely as the sun shines.
We have the material to do it with. The
flurry of the democrats reminds us of the
terrible slashes a whale gives with its tail
just before dying. It is precisely the case
with them. They are now giving their last
slashes, and we mean to send the harpoon
on the fourth of August, into their hearts.

Republican Mass Meeting in Lexington
I think there was one thousand persons
present, and in noticing the movements ot
the Republicans of that County, though I
never take any part in politics and am not
a partizan, I must confess that the Repub
lican party in Davidson County is the best
organized party I ever saw. They seem to
be a unit At the opening of the meeting
the flag was hoisted, and carried into the
Courthouse by a colored man and Col. W.
F. Henderson. The immense crowd marched
into the Courthouse until every seat was
filled, and nothing like all could get in. R.
C. Badger, sen of the Hon. Geo. E. Badger,
was then introduced by Col. Henderson. He
made a chastk able, and argumentative
speech, defending the administration, both
State and National, with marked ability.
A recess was then Makcn. CoL Henderson
Hmx asKcd the ablegates from the different
townships in the Comty to meet in the
Masonic Hall, there, to fteke nominations
for the Legislature. - ThoOY:' Allen was
nominated for the Senate ; B. . Beckerdite
and Joseph Miller for the Housie f Repre
sentatives, and, ; as I understand they
are capital men, 'unobjectionable to both
parties, except extreme men. Joseph A.
Sowers, the former Sheriff, was renomina
ted. Commissioners were renominated,
the names ot whom I do not know.
The nominees were announced, and seem
ed to meet the approbation of the entire
Republican ranks. The bell was again rung,
meeting rc-assembled. Col. Henderson intro
duced Geu. W. L. Scott, who made a capi
tal speech upon the different issues in which
our people are interested, and there is no
doubt but that he will carry that county by
from 800 to 1000 majority. Then calls were
made for Maj. Wm. A. Smith, President of
the N. C. R. R., who spoke for an hour and
a half; and I must confess his speech
was made up of a good deal of humor and
good hard sense, and, had you been piescnt
Mr.' Editor, you would have thought
that he was handling Mr. Leach with gloves
oil. When Mr. Smith closed his speech,
CoL Henderson rose in the bar and moved
that three cheers be given for Maj. Smith
and the Republican party, which was res
ponded to with much enthusiasm. The
meeting then closed. X.

D. A. JENKINS,
Opinion of Chief Justice Pearson,
Chambers in the Injunction Case.
State of North Caiiolisa,
At Chambers, July 2, 1870.
Rufus Y. McAden, on behalf of himself
and the other property-holders and tax
payers of the State vs. David A. Jenkins,
treasurer ol the otatc, and the Wilmington
Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad Com
Upon the facts set out in the complaint
treating it as an an affidavit, and the argu
ment ot counsel, I declare my opinion to be
that the plaintiff, as one of the property
noinersana lax payers in the State, is enti
tied to institute the action in his own name
and the names of all ot the other property
holders and tax pavers in the State, the le
gal effect of which is, that the plaintiff will
not be at liberty to dismiss the action with
out an order of the Court first had and ob
I further declare my opinion to be : that
by the true construction of the Acts of 12th
of March, 1S70. m connection with the Acts
of 5th ot February, 1870, and of the 8th of
March, 1S70, the Public Treasurer is not
authorized by the former Act to receive of
the Company any of the bonds of the State
which are embraced within the meaning
ana purview oi me Act ot btli March, 1S70.
The act of 12th of March does not specify
the kind of State bonds the Public Treas
urer is to receive: but it cannot with con
sistency be made to include . any of the
Don as issued under the authority ot acts
which are repealed by the act of 8th of
March, 1870. This conclusion follows with
out reference to the question of the consti
tutionality of the act of the 8th of March ;.
for it must be taken that the General As
sembly supposed this act to be constitu
tional, and did not intend by the act of the
12th of March to recognize any of the State
bonds, coming within its provisions, to be
valid and of legal effect.
I further declare my opiuion to be : that
by reason of the act referred to and the al
leged action ol the Wilmington, Charlotte
and Rutherford Railroad Company, on the
1st day of June, 1870, the act of the 12th of
Karwo. doe.? not authorize the Public
treasurer to -receive from tne ujiuiu; any
part of the bonds alleged to be remaining in
the hands of the Company, and issued under
the act of the 29th of January, 1870.
It is therefore considered by me that the
facts set out in the complaint, arc sufficient to
entitle the plaintiff, in behalf of himself
and of the other property holders and tax
payers in this State,to demand the injunction
as claimed. It is ordered that the Clerk of
the Superior Court of Wake County i?sue
a writ restraining the defendant Jenkins
from receiving, in execution of the act of
12th of March, 1S70, any State bonds which
are embraced by t: e act of the 8th of March,
1870, or any of the State bonds issued un
der the act of the 12th of January, 1809,
which are still in the hands of the Wilming
ton, Charlotte & Rutherford Railroad Com
pany, and restraining the defendant, the
Wilmington, Charlotte & Rutherford Rail
road Company, from handing over to the
Public Treasurer, in execution of the act of
the 12th of March, 1870, any of the bonds
above referred to the plaintiff first giving
an undertaking, in writing, with two or
more sufficient sureties, to be justified before
me, that he will pay all damages rot exceed
ing the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars
(825.000) which the defendants may sustain
by reason of the injunction, if the Court
shall finally elecidc that the plaintiff was
not entitled to recover.
The plaintiff will be allowed five days
from this instant to procure sureties, upon
giving an undertaking in writing, to pay all
damages which the defendants may sustain
by reason of the delay, not to exceed the
sum of one thousand dollars ($1,1(00) in the
evcnt that he fails within that time to for
feit his undertaking for the order of injnnc
A notice of this order upon the defendants
will be forthwith issued, and will have the
effect of a restraining order.

penses this year comparett
with 1868 of. .'. $18,206 70
I am happy to say that our stock has in
creased in value for the last two years more
than one hundred pef cent, and that our
Bonds can readily be sold at par.
The completion of the Charlotte, Colum
bia & Augusta Railroad has not added
as much to our receipts as wc anticipated.
It is very important to you that the roads
from Augusta, Georgia, to Portsmouth, Va.,
should bo worked as one road. I see no
way to accomplish this with the present
management. I would therefore respectfully
recommend that our Compiny purchase the
road from Charlotte to Augusta, if it can
be bought at a reasonable price.
Should you think proper to purchase this
road I would advise that the gauge be
changed to the same as our road. When
we can run cars without breaking bulk from
Angusta to Portsmouth, .this would double
thelncome of your road, and enable you in
a few years fci pay "ff the bonds that it may
be necessary to issue to meet the debt caused
by this purchase.

Attorney General of North-Carolina.
Dear Sin : As there secma to 1m h differ
ence of opinion as to whether there should
be an entirely new registration, before the
August election, will you be kind enough,
iu order that the question mav be set
tled and uniformity of action established,
to give your opinion for the press of the
State on. the subject ? I respectfully solicit
an opinion from you, in order that all diffi
culty may be avoided, at an early day.
Very respectfully your ob't scrv't,
Wm. A. Allen.
Attorney General's Office, )
Raleigh, N. C, July Cth, 1870.
William A. Williams, Esq.,
Attorney at Law.
Dear Sir: Yours of the 2nd instant re
ceived, and in compliance I have the honor
to reply, that the Registration Acts of 1808,
chapters 49 and 50, are to govern in the
present election so far as they extend, and
they extend thus far: the act of March 26th
1870, only makes certain minor alterations
and additions, to be noted presently.
Sec 6, chap. 49, (act 1808.) declares who
shall bo entitled to vote and preparatory
inuiciu legian-i. me registration already
made under this act therefore stands good.
Sec. 11. providing for removal bv .-Inf..
tors, those iircschtW at any other voting
place a certificate of their previous regis
tration. The above leaves only those who neglec
ted to register previously, or at the registra
tion in 1808; those coming of age who
could not; with the naturalized, and imi-
grants, to appear as electors. Whilst sec
tion 7th of the same act, (with a very slight
alteration now,) together With section 7th
ol the act amending as found in Ciautcr 50
oi tnc same date, supply all the main regu
latinns for a lair and full registry and vote.
Hence, with the idea that past registra
tion was to answer as far as it goes, the Se
cretary ot btatc is directed in the 3rd Sec.,
Act 1870, to supply suitable books, "when
needed," like those before nscd.
Therefore by comparing the two Acts of
1SG8, and this of 1870, it is seen wku$hnir
jra re iiiuiiei, urate uciiig very lew. 1 lie
alterations are as follows:
I. The oath of voters is changed from
that in the 4th Section of the Act of
18G3, to this in the 6th Section of the
Act of 1S70, and which, seeing the error of
the lormer Act in requiring a subscribed oath
as under the 4th section of the VI Article
of the Constitution, requires it now merely
under the 2nd section of the same chapter
of the Constitution. This saves time, and
avoids the unmeaning ceremony of exacting
the oath of an office-holder, instead of that
oi a voter simply.
IL To save time and the particularity
seeming sufficient, section 7th of the Act of
18G8 is altered, as shown in section 9th of
the present law. The oath is not subscribed
1IL Section 12th. new Act relates
the hours of voting, who to vote in connex
ion with rcaistry evidence or otherwise,
which it is well to note expressly, and in
its connection with sections 11th and 12th
ot the toruier Act.
IV. Section 27lh, new Act, is uew matter
and should be attended to.
All other portions of the recent Act relate
to certain things therein Well defined, and
mailing it a niiier unci better law, hut no
bearing on the present cnouirv.
It may be well to call attention to the 7th
section oi the Act of 18G8, and the 28th of
Act ot loiO, and mark it as intended.
No registered voter shall be challenged on
the day ot election, but those offering to
register on the day ot election may be dial
lenged, and every person applviiig for regis
trationfoire the election, may bechallcnged
at that tune in tike manner.

Seaside Fashions. The Newport corrc:-
piuidenl of the Boston Journal says:
Vllere are a few hints concerning the pre
vailing fashions at the seaside, which al
ways very materialy differ from those of the
city, juorc iioerty is aiuwcu, uuu unfit on liv
ing novelties are d:spiayea.
"First, about tho hair : for full dress the
chignon is retained, but for driving, shop
ping, ana oramary wear, u is aiscarueu, auu
the natural hair simply braided and crossed
on the back of the head, or left in two long
braids down the shoulders. This style is
worn by married ladies as well as young
misses. With the latter the Chinese style,
one flat braid, is very popular, though not
becoming to many. These long braids are
not necessarily of one's own hair : falso
switches can be ingencously plaited in with
them, defying detection.
No person's wardrobe is complete with
out at least one linen dress. They are
universally worn nt the beach and fur the
morning walk or d rive down town. They
arc made in ever variety of style, usually
very prolusely on amcntcd with plaitings.
puff's or ruffles of the same, or expensively
trimmce; witu iruges lace ; many are sim
ply trimmed with alpaca or flat white
Marseilles braid, and for children they are
embroidered iu black and white. Large
brown or black hats, with a sensible crown
neither too high uortoo low, decorated with
bows of ribbon or garlands ofllowers,accom
p.tny the linen costume.
"For the afternoon dress the' sailor hat
with high crown, is fashionable, but trim
ming is not confined as heretofore to the
simple band with anchors embroidered on
the ends. Flowers, pompons' and aigrettes
are employed. 1 he t rench imported hats
mostly have rolling brims, are turned up
behind, andjare loaded with fruit and flowers,
with long lace ends at the bock. As regards
the chapeau, one can hardly be out of the
fashion. Round bats are worn by all ladies
at church and on the promenade. A few
ladies, extremists, arc adopting the new style
ot walking costume, the skirt trailing several
inches on the sidewalk."
To Cook Vegetables. A German pro
feasor says that if one portion of a vegetable
be boiled in. pure distilled or rain water,
and another in which a little salt has ocen
added, a decided difference is DcrceDtihle
in the tenderness of the two. Vegetables
boibad DOe water rc rastly inferior in
flavor. This inferiority may go so far, in the
the case of onions, that they arc entirely
destitute of either taste or odor; though
when cooked in salt water, in addition to
the pleasant taste, is a peculiar sweetness
nnd strong aroma. They also contain more
soluble matter than when cooked in pure
water. W atcr winch contains onctwcmicth
of its weight in salt is far better, because
the salt hinders the solution or evaporation
ol the navoring principles ot the vegetables.
Philadelphia has another water scare, as
the supply at the Fairmount Water-works
is tailing oft, owing to the drought.
