The News-Observer of Sunday ul
1 slit's a letter from the deposed tovernot
of North Carolina in wliieh lie make
complaint that while so imteh is lorjjivct
and forgotten, his siti alone is remem
bered. Willi a warm personal feel in t; to
wards Mr. Holdeti, ami with every wish
and hot that his latter years may lu
cheered with all the environments o!
personal kindness and respect, we an
tflad that his sin is remembered, not ii
vindictiveness, but as n U'sson and warn
ing. Disease become? indelibiy bistori
cal, as the record of abuse of powers en
trusted to him as the servant of the peo
pie; turned by him into powers for tin
oppression of the people; and as auotbei
instance of that manly resentment oftU
people of Noah Carolina, inspire!1
with the spirit of liberty, impatient o:
oppression, prompt to assert their rights
always vindicating themselves withii
the law where tli.'t he possible, btr.
prompt to resort to arms as the supreme
recourse.
We ai;ree witli the News-Observer ir
thinking that Mr. Holdeii "is not wise in
brinin forward prominently matters
personal to himself." lie does so appar
ently predicating his pica on a change o
publie sentiment or a lorgetfulness of 'tin
past. 1 he change, it it exist, is thai
of a tender sympathy for one who !ivr
and moves ammii; us, an old man and
marked one upon whom is iinpi iutcd at
indelible brand that all may see, am
none may forget. It is a painful si.nlit
but it is a useful one, always remindiiiL
the ruler of the crimes into which his pas
sious or his ambition may lead him, al
ways reminding l he wronged people oft Ik
redress that is within their reach. Wt
do not believe that the legislature wotili
so far as the News-Observer thinks i;
would. That paper says:
The people of North Carolina have m'
reverseti tlieir ju'l;;nient of the event: o
those times. They entertain no per
sonal animosity toward (iov, lioldeu
but they h.id a iuJ.utnciU of atTairs whicl
remains. Time has molliiied any in il.'i
tiou of a personal nature and we mih;
say that the inn!'', its are buried beneati
the waters of oblivion. To this ex ten;
ilo we believe this to be true, that on tl:.
simple sucstioii by (iov. lb!len that
lie desires to have his disabiiiiu-s re
moved, we think the legislature would
pass a resolution to that effect.
Hut w hile the legislature may be will
ing to pass such a resolution, it will not
heed any eonimunicatron from (lovermn
Holdeii that maintains the correctness
of his attitude in lTi. The judgment
of the people as to thai is liu!, linal ami
irrevocable.
Mr. Holilen makes t!ie endeavor to sof
ten his oflences by comparing a present
condition of tilings with a state of af
fairs existing during the second year o
his term of otlice. lie savs. 'I am pained
to see that the State is threatened under
(iov. Fowle with lynch law." And wc
are pained to admit "that the prevalence
of lynch law is now alarming and dis
graceful." lint there is no possible par
allel between the lynch law and its
causes of his day and the present. And
it may be safely added that the present
tract ice owes its frequency and facility
to lessons learned in the ill omened days
of (iov. Hohlen's administration. He fore
his day it had been unknown. In hit
day there was so much oppression of the
white people, so much partiality to the
negroes, that it encouraged them not only
to insolence and insubordination, but to
actual violence, murder, rape and confla
gration. The denial of justice by the
courts, the actual encouragement given
by them to a state of lawlessness con
fined almost entirely, from the action
of extraneous causes, to one class
which made life unsafe, lemale vir
tue in constant peril, pr"rrty inse
cure, and the whole condition of so
ciety lamentable in the extreme. II there
were the existence tit Ivueh law in those
davs, it was the authorities who were
responsible. The iaws were silent, jus
tice closed us ear, and the sintering, out
raged, down trodden jteople were relue
tantlv driven to resort to the Inst law ol
nature. In meeting a great emerge ic
the then executive exhibited neither the
wisdom of the statesman, the tenderness
ol the man, nor the sympathies of the
tellow citizen, lie displayed the vain
elation of a man invested with unlimi
ted power, with merciless purpose to use
it, declaring a jteople as open enemies,
when their grievances were real and
great, and to whom fair impartial ad
ministration might have given relief or
redness; but, preferably declared as ene
mies to be subjugated and terrorized by
u horde of mercenaries from a distant sec
tion, composed of men long lamiliarized
to rapine and merciless brutality.
It is all very well to look back upon
the past with a changed heart, and pos
sibly a changed view. The retrospect,
viewed in humiliation, cannot seem nearly
as bright as when viewed from the char
iot of triumph, when enemies were
trampled down and old time slights had
their revenges. This retrospect, a pain
lul one to Mr. Holden, is also a painful
one to the people of North Carolina; so
painful that it will continue to be use
fully impressive. The touching appeal
of Gov. Holden that "his motives were
good, and that he had in view only the
welfare and glory of North Carolina"
will only suggest, not excuse, the distor
tion of view or principle under which
acts of wrong or cruelty are justified.
We remember that the inquisition roasted
heretics for the good of their souls.
What we ask, what the people ask, is
law, a willing ear rt it on the part of the
ruling powers, and then there will be
ready obedience to it on the part of those
whose dutv it is to obev.
Mr. Davis' letter to the committee of
invitation to the centennial celebration
embraces high compliments to the inde
pendent spirit ol North Carolina in refus
ing to ratifv the consiitutu'11 of the rai
ted States until assured in doing so she
wasnot sacrificing her rights and liber
ties; more emphatically the rights apper
taining to her as a sovereign State.
And in discussing this latter point in the
letter, Mr. Pa vis makes it clear that this
verv doctrine of State sovcicignty was
the essential principle of the constitution ;
when it was adopted, and that such sov-;
creignty was not swallowed up by the l
union created out ol the compact of these j
States. The weakest and most powerful of i
them alike proposed to retain its indivii'
lality, kluuic Island as well as Virginia, i
the smallest and the then largest, as im-;

ic, .!,., .!.- tun of

judges but the rights ui imk pendent sov

-ight, but one impracticable except for
uiu, diolulioii of government and res
bition back into original feeble, helpless
onipoiient parts. That is disposed ol
never; and a stronger, more powerful,
md perhaps better understood system ot
;overnment exists than before. We must
-ay, however, that some of our Northern
ricuds are not ipntc convinced that tin it
victory was one of conquest as well over
the South as over the constitution, and
ihat State rights is a vain and also a
lissipated illusion. Let them not be so

viewed from the iotty outloiik of the re
aowaed headland of Cape llnrii. It ueid

ivceiied with a S' l t ol lofty sioni by pro- j
.eel'irs who had not dared to be so bold !

iine; to say nothing of the opposition of
the various gov. rnmcnls and peoole
hrough whose let ritory the roads might
p.ass.
Mr. Helper might have been stimulated
by the- cousti net ion of the various trans
continental roads. He, as well as we,
had memory of ihe time when they were
regarded as chimerical as his far South
American road. He lias lived to see roads
across the continent to the shores of the
Paiitic as thick as rabbit tracks. And
truly, if his idea were simply pro
phetic, it is meeting realization in
his time. One great step was taken
when the road to the city of Mexico
vas built. That was not in contempla
tion when Mr. Helper propounded his
views. At tlie other end, the Argentine
republic and Paraguay have made enor
mous increase in population nnd giant
strides in pr ig ress ; a ud ra i 1 roa d s
