ADJOURNED.
Every body will bj glad to learn
that our General Assembly has ad
journecl, and that it is the law now
for it to hold only biennial sessions,
fur all parties and people had grown
tired of reading its hcal legislation
and roalizin? the tax it was upon the
State.
To let the above paragraph stand
alone would work an injustice in a
measure to the Legislature and fail to
express onr entire view of their work.
That Ave looked forward to the meet
ing of this Assembly with high an
ticipations, and that we have been to
a considerable extent disappointed in
the practical benefits accruing to the
State from its operation, is surely
true, but that it has been out of the
power ot that body to remedy some
of the impending evils, is also true.
For instance, the most important
matter for the consideration of the
Legislature was the adjustment of
the State debt. All felt, that if some-
thin could be done to relieve the
people of this Jincuinbus, it would
inaugurate anew era of material pros
perity in North Carolina, yet it was
a matter beyond the power of legisla
tive control. So also the matter of
consolidation. It would doubtless
have been better for the State at large
if it could have been consumated, but
it involved vested rights of individu
als which could not be touched.
Thus while we tire ready to excuse
from the performance of impossibili
ties, we complain that it should have
taken our Legislature so long to find
out that it could do nothing, and that
it should have wasted so much time
in petty concerns.
The greatest blunder of the past
Legislature, however, and a shame to
it, is the manner in which the people
were defrauded of their choice for U.
S. Senator.
PATRIOTIC
The following scene took place in
the House of Representation last
Monday. We give it as telegraphed
by the Associated Press company
Mr. Waddell is faulty in the back
pay question, but is justly proud of
tho history of his good old state.
In the House Kelly, of Pennsyl
vania, offered a resolution that mem
i ers of the House and Senate will

of Kelley's politeness and

THE PROSTRATE STATE
If there is anything ia tho present
political state of affairs that should
elicit our deepest interest and our
warmest sympathy, more than the
general decrepitation and degeneracy
of Southern society, it ia the prostrate
condition of our sister south of us.
Settled by a brav and chivalrie peo
ple, acoustomsd to the refinement of
the highest civilization, the mother of
Gadsden, the Eutledges, of Lynch, of
Marion, of Calhoun, and a host of
others that have added luster to the j
fame of the American nation, she
now sits in the ashes of humiliation,
preyed upon by dishonest polititions,
ruled by her slaves, insulted and
scoffed at, and so poor that thero are
none found to do her reverense.
What a sight ! What a commentary
on the wisdom of Reconstruction !
At a meeting of the Tax-payers
Convention, held in Columbia last
Tuesday, it was asserted, that whilo
taxable property had declined from
$500,000,0(0 to $175,000,000 the
taxes had risen from $400,000 to over
two and a half millions. The people
are virtually required to pay twenty
times as much as before the war ; the
bonded debt is trebled ; the amount
of floating debt is unknown ; the leg
islative expense? have risen from
$40,000 to $300,000, and the public
printing from 5,0?0 to $330,000.
In view of this state of affairs, and
the absolute impossibility of the tax
payers to get relief in the state on
account of the tax-makers being in
no way concerned ia tax-paying, the
convention calls upon the national
government and the American people
for their influence against the preva
lent grievances. How have the
mighty fallen ! and to what a pass of
degredation have we come when the
wealth, virtue and intelligence of a
sovereign state has to appeal to the
general government for protection
against the vice and brutality of a
majority of its citizens.
THG SCATTERED PEOPLE.
Such was the theme of a lecture
delivered by Gov. Vance in Balti
more last Friday niht. Our rco"
pie can bat feel gratified at the
handsome reception given their
beloved fellow statesman, and enjoy
an honest pride in the high tribute
paid by a truehearted and cultiva
ted people to one of the purest and
noblest patriots and most remark-,
able and illustrious orators of the
nation. The address is spoken of
by the press as in every respect
admirable, the Baltimore S'?i hav
ing published a report which we
hope to lay before our readers in
our next.
We never hear of the estimation
in which Gov. Vance is held abroad,
without thinking of the disgraceful
manner in which he was cheated out
of the position, for which the people
of his State preferred him above all
others.

Address Gflfca National Orange.
The Baltimore Gazette referring to
the address of the National Orange,
says :
" The address of the National
Grange, convened at St. Louis, pub
lished yesterday in our columns, is a
remarkably strong document. It is
quite singular in a fashion in which
it should not be singular it contains
very little chaff and a great deal of
wheat. It is noticeable for its com
mon senea. Th9 tone is familiar,
while dignified, and is that of a body
conscious of its strength. It "gnores
politics, but politicians had better
keep out of its way. It is going to
be a power. It is going to hold the
balance in the next Presidential elec
tion. It has already partially revol
utionized the West both industrially
and politically. What we are rejoiced
to soe is that' the address is without
sectional jealousy or one word that
can wound. Its advice to the South
was drawn up by Southern men, and
heartily endorsed by every member
of the order. It sets forth as the
true policy of the South just wha
every friend of that section has been
urging upon it for years, and yet the
South itself has been too dull to
received it. Raise home crops, not
exclusively ccttpn, but corn, wheat,
potatoes : feed hogs and cattle of ail
kinds; raise poultry where the ne
groes will allow it, and be free from
dependence on others."
The New York Tribune thus speake j
of the same resolutions; j
" The declaration of principles put j
lorth by the .National Ltrange, at ot.
Louis, is certainly a striking and
able document- The aims and ob
jects of the Patrons of Husbandry!" as
therein stated, are designed to har-
monize capitaT and labor, promote
t e greatest good of the greatest
number, and clothe the brotherhood
with all the elements of the highest
manhood and citizenship. If the
Grangers will live up to this admir
able declaration, they will confer a
lasting benefit on the whole country.

The riotous demonstrations so often
exhibited in England during the elec
tions in that country appears rot to
be confined particularly to one poli
tical party, but are conmon to both
Liberals and Conservatives. These
disgraceful scenes do not by any
means show that respect for the law
or regard for the public decency
of which John Bull so loquaciously
boasts when here in America where
no such disturbances on the part of a
brawling mob interfering with the
freedom of speech would be tolerated.

SOLUBLE PACIFIC GUANO,
LISTERS STANDARD SUPER PIKSPHATE OF LIME,
WHANTS RAWB0NE SUPER PHOSPHATE OF LIME,
LISTER'S PURE GROUND AND DISSOLVED BONE,
LAND PLASTER.
We again offer to the Planters of North Carolina th above named Hia,lu approved Stan
dard Fertilizers. ' '
These Guanos have been used season after season, and have uniformly given fatisfaction
and we consider it unnecessary to give here any high sennding chemical analyses to Induce
the prudent farmer to use tbem, as the experience of several vears bear testimony In the
most satisfactory manner as to their real merit and reliability.
In the above we are offering Fertilizers that can be relied upon, and no ot-e need take the
great risk of experimenting with anything new and entirely unknown, bec.ms it i rftW.i
at an apparently low price. u
PEICES:
Soluble Pacific Guano, Cash $.r0. Nov. 1st, 1874, $55
Lister's Standard Super Phesphate, Cash $50. Nov. lsf, 1874' $55
Whann'o Eawbone Super Phosphate, Cash $55. Nov. 1st, 1874 $60
It is an admitted fact, confirmed by many year experience, that an ordinary application of
approved Standard Fertilizers to Cotton and Corn increases the yield to double the produc
tion of the same soil unfertilize J. This statement is not exaggerated ; on the contrary tbe
results more frequently exceed than fall short of the above increase.
Special Teviriss :
We will sell a limited quantity of SOLUBLE PACIFIC GUANO and LISTER'S STAN
DARD SUPER PHOSPHATE OF LIME for a bale (400 pounds) of Cotton per Tod and
WHANN'8 RAW BONE SUPER HHOSPI1ATE OF LIME for a bale (4.V) pounds) of Cut
ton, per Ton of 3000 pounds, 1 '
Payable November 1st, 1874.
We guarantee all FERTILIZERS sold by us to be FREE FROM ADULTERATION
