Cash, the notorious duellist, as an accessory after the deed to his son's crime in murdering the Town Marshal of Cheraw Cash be ing a man who has had an influence, by reason of his hospitality and "pluck," not unlike the sovereign of a little kingdom means more for the progress of South Carolina than any other event since the election of Mr. Wade Hampton Governor, which put an end to carpet-bag rule there. All the Southern States, and South Carolina more than any other, have suf fered much from such bullies, and from the public spirit which in certain commu nities tolerated them ; and suffered still more, of course, in the esteem of people elsewhere in the Union, by reason of the exaggerated importance which has always been given to such men as the Cashes. The imprisonment of the elder Cash, and the treatment of the younger as a com mon outlaw, means simply an emphatic declaration that the common law, and not the Cashes and their like, are supreme in South Carolina. In itself the arrest of one criminal and the reward for another is a simple thing, not worthy of great praise, nor worthy even of especial note. But when the deeds and the creeds of these particular criminals and their like hava been used as an excuse for a general mis representation of society in South Caro lina, it becomes of very great importance. It proves to thousands of men who have been deterred from coming South, and from sending money South, by their no tions of society here it proves to them beyond all cavil that there is law in South Carolina, and that the law is supreme., - The.Xlg'co5rt- ' ... 'elTTZ.- nd the Southern press has ivm&P&Bseir proud of the Charleston News artd Courier, which at once insisted on summary action, and which sent an active correspondent with the posse, whose letters have done much to overthrow the peculiar and diseased public opinion in certain sections which hesitated to condemn any deed that a Cash might do. For a week it has shown admirable enterprise, and dono effective work for South Carolina and for all the South. TIME TO ASSERT OURSELVES. The South has not regained the promi nence it once had in the political thought or Tho Slnla C.hrrminlp has. 1 in the political action of the Union. It It ill Ti 1 t 11 "VT il. i - ' 1 fm Memrmr mov. monlf wnicn, ena wurv tni t The Southern people, although they con Ui4 to &e of bettsice' to the fieohle j stitute the greater part of the Democratic 4 men will give for the campaign. Then the South will accept the money, publish campaign newspapers, all hands take the stump and hurrah for the candidates nom nated bv Northern and Western men. It is a humiliating situation, but it is true. "We seem to have lost our old power to are to-uay waiting timiaiy ior Northern and Western men to decide on a ale ine ottto fail astpe now fat policy and to name a man waiting also it hai Uccceeded. &Yie meadule for the money that Northern and Western of iti- i-ticcete defiendi- not merely on the ihiU and indubtiy with which it it- conducted 0mA a&o ufion iti- identification with the fieofde7 intele&fo. &he notion that a newbhahel ii a teachel ii-1 lead ' .. 1 -- i -l . j t " r . tt jb or exampie last year wnen jar. y ance was fightins: manfully (as no other South tfiat tCtS a LcbvanC. ern born Senator was") for tariff reform, a 6Jjie man wfio i-i& constantly Connecticut Republican sent an unsigned . . . j , . , - I petition to a "Western county in North t-n an cdttoiiav cnaii vecomez- a i: , i dull feUow at 6ebt. useful J of the tariff on a miserable mineral pro- new&hahel muU hnow i& tead duct of some sort; our people signed it . j y I and sent it to Mr. Vance; and not even he el.

Meanwhile, though not slow in would be something positive and no longer namby-pamby. Being namby-pamby it has suffered a constant loss in the popular vote at every election since Mr. Vance led it to victor-. It will not be defeated in this State this year because no amount of blundering is as bad as Republican plundering: in short be cause of the Negro; and this Is our only hope and our chief reason for victory. But the National Democracy with the compromis ing tariff -plank has no earthly chance of success, because it has no backlxmc. Mr. Z. B. Vance is incomparably the foremost public servant of North Carolina now in public life our soundest and most far-seeing statesman. He is no longer the hustings wit, and perhaps clown, that he was in earlier life accomplishments which added to his popularity at home but cost him years of his life which if spent otherwise would have made him even greater and more useful than he is. And he is a trained politician,as his conduct of the Danville investigation, among a thou sand other things, proves. He will, per haps without doubt, be elected to succeed himself. AVill.his election be a recogni tion of his great work for tariff-reform ? or will it be a recognition of his personal popularity and of his party services such as those done at Danville in making a fool of Mr. Wise ? If Mr. Vance were to die to-day would any body of North Carolin ians think to say in resolutions passed in honor of him that he made a record last year as an enemy of protection that is the crown and glory of a long public life ? The people of North Carolina are assert ing themselves industrially with command ing effect. But politically they are non-committal followers, and not leaders in such political thought and action as the times de mand. The choice that will be made for a candidate for Governor this year will it depend on any particular Democratic doctrine that the man selected will em phasize ? or will it it depend on his person al popularity and his qualifications for go ing through a campaign ? The way, and the only way, for North Carolina to make herself a political weight among the States is to do something posi tive to lead, at least to suggest, and no longer to follow blindly and help to make such blunders as Greeley and Han cock and a hundred other less ones possi ble. A ONE-SIDED DEVELOPMENT. If a man were to come from the moon to North Carolina and look about him, he would find many things of interest. First of all perhaps he would observe our agri culture. It would be an eCceu!iKly in teresting sight to see .thousands and thou sands of JSers plowing with hope of a 'good crop, doing work which feeds us all. Our manufacturing establishments would be a cause of wonder and admiration; so also our railroads; our schools; and a thou sand and one things. And he would find people talking about all these. He might learn, too, after a while that we have a Governor and a Legislature positions of .trust and of necessity, but po sitions which are to do merely routine work, except in great emergencies, and which do not yield amounts of money to be compared with the profits of manufactur ing and of the railroads and not more than the amounts earned by farming. Yet he would see the people cease their work, walk miles and spend money to talk about the Governor and the Legislature; and he would see thousands of dollars spent to elect men to these positions. Seeing such indications of public spirit, he might naturally expect to see the same men gather in groups, and spend money with the same freedom nay with even greater to build new railroads, to build new factories, to establish every kind of industries. But if he were to try to arouse the people on any such subject to half the pitch they reach on politics, he would soon conclude either that he is a fool or that people are foolish. Our political curiosity has been develop ed out of all proportion to our curiosity or interest about any other subject. The prom inence that we give to it is out of all propor tion to its worth. Out of 300 columns of newspaper reading matter printed in North Carolina which have come to this office to day, quite 200 are about politics or politi cians. Yet as a matter of fact politics and politicians are really of little consequence, Less than 10 columns are about farming and 10, perhaps, about manufactures. The rest are mainly about mishaps and personal news. It is a very strange and one-sided devel opment. and cheering him and encouraging him in the magnificent work he was doincr. And to-day instead of crying out for tariff -re form, while he is ever at work for it, we are indulging in "pish-pish-lie-low let's-win first." In short a door-keeper of the Senate or a Revenue-agent from North Carolina has more weight in Republican plundering circles than the Democratic people of North Carolina have upon the policy and backbone of the National Do- atout it a&hi aS an esfieciai favol I mocracy. that you wiU wlUe fianhly youl If the Democratic party of North Caro- . . , , . lina this year were to declare manfully ofuntons and fvaUtculty youl that aprotective tariff must go and were to clitcctSon ofyr it.

It is interesting to observe that among the reasons set forth by the friends of sonic of the candidates, not the lea.t prominent is the fact that they were good soldiers. It may not be uninteresting to olserve that the Federal Court in Tennessee lately declared the Tennessee Railroad Commis sion unconstitutional both as regards the State Constitution and the 14th amend ment to the Federal Constitution. Few know how onerous the duties of a Western Government land-agent are. Mr. George Bain Everitt has found it ossible to leave his post in Dakota to make a visit to his far-off old home in North Carolina only once in the last two months. The tender hearted Reporter of Dur ham suggests "that the legislature of North Carolina should enact a law pre venting the catching of such small fish as has been sold in this place recently.'' Yes, yes. Make it illegal for mall fish to bite. Perhaps everybody in North Carolina knows it, but it is worth saying over again that within twelve miles on Deep River (including Randleman and Columbia) there are eight cotton mills. The talk is of a branch of the Yadkin Valley road to run out there and to give them the day light of steam transortation. The announcement of the 25,000 12 page tobacco issue of The Chronicle has brought encouraging responses from many sources, demonstrating pretty clearly again, that whoever proposes or does any thing for the upbuilding of North Caro lina will find that North Carolinians are with him heart, hand, purse and prayers. The largest amount of revenue raised from any one source in North Carolina during the last fiscal year as shoAvn by the State Auditor's report except by pub lic taxes and by the sale of the Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley Railway was by the li cense tax on commercial travellers, which was $69,900 '.$69,900 ! That is not very likely to stand. Whatever may be the particular politi cal significance of the withdrawal of Mr. Keogh's name from the Senate as Marshal for the Western District, if it mean that he becomes lukewarm, his lukewarmness is equal to the death of any dozen of the other little bosses to the holy cause of holding the Federal spoils in this part of the Republican vineyard. The proposition, which the North Car olina Teacher had the honor first to make, to have a North Carolina Chautauqua this summer at Waynesville has been received with favor by teachers and the press in many parts of the State. If the project fall into practical hands, and be under taken in time, there is no reason in the world why it should not be successfully carried out. Please score one ! This issue ends the first volume of The State Chronicle. The Chronicle is reminded to remark that it ends also the use of the bad paper on which it has had the ill luck for several weeks to be printed. The obituary of the man who makes, sells, buys or in any way causes this journal again to use any but a uniformly good paper will be published free of charge. Figures do lie in the hands of print ers. The Chronicle's correspondent who wrote of Mr. AVilliam L. Kennedy's farm in Lenoir county a fortnight ago meant to say tnat ne proaucea 55,000 pounds of mt cotton. But it is a poor printer or proof reader that don't know more about Mr. Kennedy's farm than The Chronicle's correspondent or than Mr. Kennedy him self. So his cotton crop was abridged bv 49,500 pounds.' A printer is worse than a mortgage. It is a gratifying piece of information brought by the Beaufort Tele2tfione, that Rev. N. M. Jurney, of the Methodist Con ference, owning an interest in a silver mine, nas Decome rich. Whereupon Ihe Chronicle begs to offer its congratula tions ; for the richer any man is preach er or layman the more useful he can be and the happier in consequence. But this is only half the good story. Mr. Jurney has declared that he will be one of five persons to make up the $100,000 endow ment of Trinity College. The Chamber of Commerce, the Pro duce Exchance and the Board of Trade of Wilmington struck out along the right line, as they are always likely to do, when they recently showed public spirit by pass ing resolutions in joint session (1) com mended the pending bill in Congress for the supporfof the disabled in the revenue marine service, (2) reciting the city's need of a Government Building, and (3) pledg ing themselves to use every possible effort to have the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley road extended to Wilmington. One by ono the little bosses dispose in convenient ways of the younger bosslets who aspire to the management of the Re-publico-Liberal machine in North Caroli na. Everitt was sent to Dakota. H. X. Dwire, another Revenue officer who threat ened to ascend the little western throne has been made an Assistant Revenue agent in Alabama and Mississippi. The wise youth who wishes to emigrate from North Carolina at Uncle Sam's expense should become a Republican and go to Winston. For so it is that party builds up North Carolina. Dr. Saddleson, of Manly, writes an in teresting letter this week about Vineland, the sanitarium and winter-resort now lay ing off as an extension of Manly. Mr. Patrick has already interested 100 North ern gentlemen in the place and work has begun. Vineland is on the highest ridge in the whole Southern pine-belt, and if all sufferers from pulmonary diseases are re stored as Dr. Saddleson has been restored since his residence there, the place will become famous all over the land. When he went there he was almost dead, but now he expects to live to see a large set tlement made at Vineland. His expe rience speaks volumes in praise of the project. PERSONAL AND SOCIAL.

Mr. Nixon of the New Berne law firm of Nixon, Simmons it Manly, has with drawn and gone to Goldsboro and enter ed into copartnership with Mr. Swift Gal loway. By the death of Dr. P. W. Young, of Oxford, we have lost not only one of the foremost physicians, but likewise one of the foremost citizens of the State. He was in his 55th year. Dr. Wm. B. Pritchard, a son of Rev. Thos. H. Pritchard, of Wilmington, has received his diploma from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Baltimore. He is at present at Wilmington and has not decided whero he will practice his pro fession. Mr. John S. Long, of Now Berne, has received a letter from ex-Governor Long, of Massachusetts, now in Congress, mak ing inquiries about the Long family in this State. He says, that his great-grandfather went from Edenton early in the last century. Mr. Walter E. Faison, a graduate of the University of Virginia Law School and a young legal scholar of unusual attain ments who practiced law for a time. .Norfolk, has returned tsj -native town, .CJjDKmTwhere he will henceforth reside and practice his profession. The dramatic performance of "Lu cille," at Snow Hill the other day was a triumph of amateur art. Miss Nora King, of Wilson, took the leading part and played it handsomely. Miss Addie Wil liams, Mr. J. L. Kirkpatrick, Mr. J. R. Dail, Jr., Mr. W. D. Sugg and Mr. J. M. Lindsay made up the company. The late Mr. Kenneth Rayner was buried from Christ church in Raleigh on Monday. The pall -bearers were Chief Justice W. N. H. Smith, Associate Justice A. S. Merrimon. Attorney General Thomas S. Kenan, Col. T. C. Fuller, Maj. Jno. C. Winder, Maj. Jno. Devereux, Mr. R. H. Battle, and Mr. S. F. Mordecai. It is with sincere regret that The Chronicle learns of the business embar rassment of Messrs. Tate & Walker, of Mebane, which caused them to make an assignment. Their mill is a valuable property, they have built up a large trade, and shown uncommon enterprise. It is reported that the creditors will have the mill run, and will be able to make it meet all the debts of the firm. Mr. E. I. Renick, recently of Atlanta, who has many friends in North Carolina lately won by competitive examination a place in the First Comptroller's office in the Treasury Department at Washington, where his legal knowledge acquired by study at the University of Virginia and practice at Atlanta, commands a good salary. Mr. Renick is a Democrat and a pronounced free-trader. This looks a lit tie like civil service reform in fact. Bees in Cumberland. From the Fayetteville Observer. Mr. Wm. P. Wemyss last year sold over $300 worth of strained honey in Balti more and other markets, besides what he realized from the sale of wax and the honey sold in home markets. Mr. Wemyss stated that but a small part of his time, an hour or two only, was required daily, during tho honey season, which lasts about three months, so that his regular business was not interfered with, and that really the attention he gave his busy little friends not only put money in his pocket, but was a source of great pleas ure and recreation to him.

Guess you'll have to charge half price for cutting my hair." "Oh ! bless you, no sir ;" replied Abe, "we al ways charge double price when we have to hunt for the hair." Kinston Column of New Berne Journal. Milton's Hospitality. A couple ar rived on the train last Saturday night from Virginia, and went at once to Squire N. M. lewis's ofiiee to be made man and wife. They had but two dollars and ten cents and lacked enough money to pay for the license. Captain Buck Farley, one of Lee's "old best," and Mr. N. .1. Palmer, were active in getting up the necessary amount, and after they were spliced, Capt. F., with a true old soldier's gallantry, gave the bride a Scotch kiss. Other gen tlemen then engaged them a room at the Gorden Hotel, and paid for their break fast next morning. The bride in the morning made up the bed and then called the porter to fetch a broom for her to sweep up the floor. That night one of tin boys tapped at the room and asked the groom to come go out and have a drink, but she sprang to the door with him, say ing : ,"No, sir ; he goo nowhere. He don't leave this room !" Anil he didn't. They left the town Sunday morning walking, and crossed the narrow gauge tresslc. She said she wanted to go to Graham county, where she had a sister living. Rtid&cille Times. Death of Mr. P. F. Pescud. Not many times in recent years has the death of any private citizen caused such universal sorrow in Raleigh as the death on Sunday of the late Mr. P. F. Pescud As druggist and as insurance agent, he had been known in all business circles in North Carolina, and no man was more favorably known. As a private citizen and Christian gentleman, he held during a long life of usefulness and charity a place as one of the pillarg of our society. The funeral, from the first Baptist Church on Tuesday, was attended by representa tives of almost every family "in Raleigh. SUPREME COURT DECISIONS, "Uh i a ' ! people would know how to count on it.

The County Government System. From the Statesville American (Rep.) Now we will show by facts and figures that at least in one county in Eastern Carolina Craven where the Ne groes largely outnumber the whites, that these county governments are not popular among the whites. From the Ifew EtrneJowmal (Dem.) The truth of the matter is, a large ma jority of the tax-payers in this section are in favor of retaining the present sys tem. This is our candid opinion, without "fear of the party lash." Uncle Sam has Educated ns Before. From the Raleigh Register. The old public school fund of North Carolina came from the National Treas ury, and it got out of the Treasury into North Carolina by reason of the signature of Andrew Jackson appended to the bill passed by Congress in 183G, to deposit the surplus revenue with the States in aid of education, or internal improvements or colonization.

Where a case on anneal is once brought uj) and the appeal is dis missed, a writ of certiorari will not issue to bring the appeal .again before the court. Camp v. Pitman. No error. Where a testator leaves property to one person, and designates another person, in whose hands it shall be placed for management, the court will not reiiuire securitv of such trustee, except where actual or impending mismanagement is shown. Hoirerton v. teu ton. Error. Want of precision and disregard of form in the record of proceedings are not suflicient to invalidate a sale made under order of court, in the absence of evidence of anv fraudulent practice. Porter v. Durham. Error. Where a processioner is obstructed in running out land, and a jury of freeholders is called in, the processioner must complete the survey after the disputed lines are estab lished by the jury. , Johnson x. Pate. No Error. A demur rer to the merits of a complaint or other pleading overruled and followed by a final judgment is decisive of all the material facts charged, and of the rights depend ent upon them. A generel demurrer confesses all matter of fact well pleaded. A matter put in issue and material to the result is conclusively determined by the verdict and judgment, where land is sought to be recovered, as it would be if the recovery of personal property were tho object. Merrimon, J. : Shepherd v. Murrill. No Error. It is not a waiver of the right to personal pro perty exemption for the judgment debtor to fail to claim the same at the time of levy. He can make such claim at any time before the sale of the property. Officers of the Court v. Bland. Appeal dismissed. Appeals must be brought up to the next term of this court after thev are taken, and if they are not brought up to that term, and no effort is made before the court to do so, the appeal will be lost. Edwards x. Warren. Judgment affirm ed, uruinaniy a will is to be construed as having been made immediately before the death of the testator. McEachern x.Kerchner. Error. A judjr- ment final by consent cannot be amended or modified except by consent of all th panics, ii a party to sucn a judgment complain of it because of inadvertence. mistake, accident or fraud, he can have redress only by an action instituted for that purpose. McDamelx. King. No Error. If a will is sufficiently distinct and olain in the meaning to enable the court to say that a particular person is to take, and that particular thing passes, it must be constru ed upon its face.
