A COLORED REBELLION.
We take the following from the corre
spondence of the Courier-Journal of the
15th. It shows that discontent in the
republican ranks of North Cnrolina is not
confined to the white niemlx'rs of the fra
ternitv, but has spread far and wide so as
to embrace all who have not, as J
Turner used to express it, "been hit in the
belly with a pone of bread." The while
malcontents have their well-founded
grievances against the national adminis
tration, the colored brethren complain ot
being ignored by the white leaders in the
State. John Williamson is right when he
says that "without us the negro voters
there would not be voters enough in
the State to hold the window books on
the day of election." The men referred
to in the correspondence, Prof. J. C. Trice
John H. Williamson, James H. Harris
William Henderson, Charles Kichnrdsoi
and John C. Dnnc, are all bright men
all excellent speakers, ardent party work
ers.and have been indefuligable inservic
and unflinching in loyalty since the da
of emancipation. They are men too wist
to be put off with empty promises; tliev
are above the snore of "forty acres and
mule"; they have worked hard for then
party and their race; and recognizing th
fact thut they comprised the bulk of thei
party in the State, they did expect rv
ward in place and office. But thev hav
"been put off with empty promises" unt
they are weaned of it. They spent
plainly. What will comeof it wewill no
prophecy. Me. Ingulls says a democrat ii
negro voter is a monstrosity. I'crhap'
so; perhaps he will not be so rare in t li
The letter referred to says:

without us there would not lie republi

Fourth district, mid A. W. Shaffer, post
master at Knlrigh. They have promised
i'rcsulcnt tlnrnson the delegation Irom
the Stute to the next National Conven
tion; but they will tail in delivering thi
goods. The colored voters of North
Carolina compose the republican pnrtt
of the State, and for the liiture we will
control our own affairs. We have mailt
up our minds never tu send another whitt
republican to congress, and only colored
men will go to the national convention
in 180X We will issue the call tor tin
State convention within ten days, and
you can bet it will lie well attended."
A COLONIAL OFFICER AND HIM

The colonial officer, the prominent fig

175 to 1773 a time remote in itt rela
tion to thit trnnsmontane section, then
unsettled by white men, but not without
interest to it. For white population
was gradually pushing up westward
from the Yadkin river, in face of the op
position of the Cherokeei who held all
the country west of the Blue Ridge, and
made occasional decents In the country

fortification at Old Fort, followed then
by expeditions across the mountains,
pursuing the Indians at far west as the
Nantahala mountains; and in this move

And to this extent the work of Col. Wad

much of interest to those who now 611
