The Roanoke News of the 2nd, says it believes that there are at least ten thousaand people in Halifax county, honest, hardworking men and their families who are unable to carry on their farming operations as they have done heretofore and thinks the Governor ought to have a session of the Legislature as asked to do, saying: They asked for bread and they got stones, in the shape of advice which they are unable to follow. We think time will prove the wisdom of the Governor's course; the people are in bad codition financially, but it is not so bad as has been thought. To have heard the people talk in the poor man's relief meeting held here some time ago, would have made some think that suf fering would have been extreme before now, but such is not the case. We are glad to say that preparation for another crop arc being made, and the prepara tions are better and more advanced than In many years. Many laborers have left and more will leave, but there is THE OLD AND THE NEW YEAR. whipping is a just mode of punishment n orth Carolina s right to speak. We have said good-by to 1880 and which, if the fine system be done v,, away with in certain cases, leaches the his adopted home, nor yet contained the ing. May we walk together in peace and We offer the entire reading matter space on the outside pages of our paper this week to one ai tide, the speech of the la mented Henry W. Grady, delivered before the Boston Merchants' Club only a short while before his death, and which very likely cost him his life. It is one of the ablest discussions of the " Race Problem" we have seen, bold, manly and truthful, and ought to be read and preserved for future reference. The State Chronicle says this of Mr. Grady's speech : This last speech of Mr. Grady's was a remarkable one in every way re markable for its great candor, its tren chant expressions, its lofty patriotism, and its heart touching eloquence. His eloquent portrayal of the peculiar af fection between the Southern white man and the Southern black man touches a responsive chord in the heart of every Southern man,and it must open to the honest-hearted man of the North an aspect of the problem which he can not find in dry presentations of the question. It is in the peculiar love and perfect understanding which the two races have of and for each other in the South that we hope for the , peaceful solution of the Race-Problem." It is with unfeigned sadness that we note any decadence of that love and confidence. If destroyed, we have no hope that we will as two races come up to the full measure of the duty which the civilization of the age and of our environment places upon us. The speech must have fallen as a new revelation upon his Boston hear ers. With a boldness never surpassed he held Harrison up as the first Presi dent who had "stamped with the great seal of our government a stigma upon the people of a great and loyal section;" and he did this in Boston where South ern men have not often talked plainly. rie answered and answered fully and forever the inquiry of Mr. Harrison in his message "When will the black men cast a free ballot?" His manly proclaiming of the President's parti zanry and injustice rings with . the magic boldness and eloquence of a Patrick Henry. He holds up the little man who is now in the Executive of fice to the contempt of men of broad minds by contrasting his "stigma" upon the South with the statesman like example of Grant, "the great dead soldier, who held the helm of state for the eight stormiest years of re construction" and who " never found rrl fXi- c- t j V. r -1 .. 'I'M,., - I - respectful in "rigorous plainness o( speech," and must be terribly crushing to the President s fair-minded friends The boldness of Mr. Grady did not stop with his rebuke of the President He tells the men of Boston that it was their ships that brought over the slaves He does not defend slavery, nor their trathc m slaves. He does not for them, or for the South, attempt to " Compound for sins they are inclined to iy damning tuose tney have no mind to, but with a fairness and comprehensive grasp of the great question, and the differences upon it, North and South, he discusses it in a statesman-like way Mr. Grady's logics and facts are irresistible. We have read many speeches and papers upon the " Race Problem," and while his is not so full or so exhaustive as some 'the limits of an after dinner speech rendering it impossible) it is the frankest, fresh est and best speech we have seen upon this old and important theme. God g"rant that the truths he uttered, in the State where walks abroad to-day the spirit of John A. Andrew who used these immortal words, "I do not know what record there is against me in the Other world, but I do know this, that I never despised a man because he was poor or because he was black," may find a lodgment in the minds and hearts of the whole American people, and bring forth a rich harvest of Pa . tience, Confidence and Sympathy, as the men of the South in "uttermost justice and abiding friendship" for the negro seek a peaceful solution of the great problem 1 rich as well as the poor.

C, May 2, 1887. 31 rs. Joe Pkrsox. Dear Madam: Most gladly do I give you my name to place before the public bpa ring testimony of the miraculous cure effected on me by your most valuable Rem edy. Fifteen years ago I was troubled by what seemed to be little scales appearing on the riizht side of my cheek under the eye, resembling ory meal bran, winch I could remove when 1 shaved, but they would return again in a short time. Soon an enlargement appeared under the same eye, attended with itching and burning sensations and sharp, darting pains from the atlected place to the eye, causing great difficulty in closing the eye, even to sleep. Sometimes it would feel better, but never at any time disappear. Some physicians pronounced it eczema, others chronic ery sipelas, and all advised me to let it alone. This I did until two years ago, when a lit tle scab began to form right under the eye, resembling a wart, which I could not re move ; in size and appearance it soon grew to be as large as a strawberry, and the scabs came off and left the place entirely raw. Having fear of a cancer, I began to use various kinds of salves to heal it up, but never could I consulted with physi cians of great experience ; they '. said it looked suspicious of it, and advised nie to have it cut or burnt out at once. 1 did not wish to do either ; and beiug persuaded it was in my blood, I resolved to try your Remedy, as it had been recommended to me. I did so with the most happy results. I can say am a well man. 1 cannot say too much for your remedy, it is worth its weight in cold. Before I had used one bottle I was honeful. and at the exDiration of five weeks the sore was entirely healed, the scales or roughness of the skin all gone, and left me a new man. I will give any one similarly affected any further in formation they may desire, and can only say, if the public will give your Remedy a iriai, it win speaK tor ttseir. and your suc cess will know no bounds.
