Ostracism. A gentleman of our town

of the colored people have anything to do

Judge Moore and tub Jcby. The
Raleigh News, of the 3rd inst., in noticing
an article in our last on this subject, says :
" The Judge (Moore) has, contrarv to
law, taken its formation in hand, and by
his orders nine-tenths of it are negroes of
the lowest type of intelligence. "
The News puts the case in a more exag
gerated form than it appeared in this paper.
V e simply said that Judge Moore had
frequently urged upon our countj' Com
missioners to put more negroes on the jury
and that the result was that ten of the
present Grand Jury were blacks. We also
took the position that Judge Moore had
nothing to do with the matter, and this we
still believe to be trne, even though he
should try to get the better class of negroes,
upon tii jury list, which, he says, is his
Memorial. On account of the extreme
bad weather, we presume, and the absorb
ing interest felt in the election last Monday,
there were too tew at the Memorial meet-1
ing, appointed to take place at the resi
dence of Mr. N. M. Lawrence, to transact
any business. We regret that there will be
no memorial services this spring, but would
suggest to the Edgecombe Association that
it appoint a committee to collect funds as
soon as practicable and build a suitable
monument to the memory of our fallen
braves. Surely this much is due those who
fell fur the cause of the South.

The committee appointed to examine

SEEiors Acciden t. Last Friday night
Mr. Beuj. Atkinson and a colored man
attempted to cross the river near Mr. At
kinson's farm, three or four miles below
Penny Hill, which resulted in a most fatal
accident. The river was considerably
swollen by the recent rains and by some
means the canoe was upset near the middle
of the stream. Mr. Atkinson and the
negro, whose name we have been unable
to ascertain, held to the boat and after a
while were floated against a tree, up which
they succeeded in climbing, having aban.
doned the canoe. The night being quite
cold the colored man suggested to Mr. A
that he could swim to the shore and would
then send for him, but for some cause he
was unable to make the trip and was
drowned. Mr. A. was compelled to spend
the night in the tree and suffered intensely
Is it Honest? Does the goveiAcu. i
the town of Tarboro' honestly belong to
the negroes ? If it does, of course we must
submit, but while the census and tax list
show a white majority it is with anything
but perfect satisfaction that we see the
municipal offices in their hands. There
seems to be a number of colored men who
make Tarboro' a kind of quasi home, that
is, headquarters while they are out of em
Dlovment. who never think of claiming
their home here except on election occa
sions, and yet by their vote the government
of the town is taken out of the hands of
the property-holders and given over to the
negroes. We admit that there is some
doubt as to the rights of these peripatetic
citizens, for their home is perhaps as much
in town as anywhere else, and if they
would at all thimes recognize themselves
as citizens of Tarboro' and bear all inci
dent burdens, wc could not gainsay their
right to vote. But they should not be
permitted to enjoy the privilege of voting
unless they shared the burdens. There
seems to be but little doubt that of the de
facto citizens of town the whites have the
majority. What then is to be done to
prevent the evil that seems to be perpetra
ting ? The remedy lies in the Legislature.
We must have the town divided into wards
or secure the passage of a bill giving us
cumulative suffrage. Either "plan would
give the white people at least two members
of the Board of Commissioners. Let the
matter he attended to next winter.
Grab All. This part of our town fur
nishes a large number of cases npon the
criminal dockets of our courts, yet but few
are successfully prosecuted. In fact, out
of nerhaca twenty or twenty five cases
X a "
that have been tried in our courts, in which
the defendents lived in that delectable
part of our town, only two have been con
victed. Now what can be the cause of
this ? It cannot be for want of merit in all
the cases, for it is seldom that so many in
nocent persons are indicted, nor can it be
for want of ability and zeal on the part of
the Solicitor, the verdict of the bar wotdd
be acainst anv such hypothesis : It must
O - V M
therefore be due to the fact that witnesses
cannot be found to testify fully. Without
havintr anv positive organization it seems
to have grown into a settled fact that the
denizens of " Grab All " must shield each
other as far as possible. At least this is
the conclusion that we draw from the
Solicitor's own statement, " that it is al
most impossible to convict a man who
lives on Grab All."

A Threat. We heard on Monday du
ring the municipal election that a promi
nent Rad made use of the following remark,
hoping thereby to influence the vote of our
Hebrew population : " The Jews have for
saken the negroes and now the negroes
ought to forsake them," meaning, we sup
pose, that the negroes ought not to deal
with those who voted the white man's
This is a game that two can play at. The
vote of a white man will not in the least
interfere with negro trade, for there arc
not enough radical merchants to supply
their demand, and the white people should
see that no merchant is injured by having
the boldness to do what he thinks is right.
We are glad to say that we heard of nc
Hebrew merchant in our community who
was influenced by the threat.
If this is the plan the radicals propose, it
may be well for the white people to draw
a lesson from it to guide their future ac
tion. A large assortment of Piques, Striped,
Checked and Swiss Muslins, Victoria and
Bishop Lawn, just received at S. Kres

party, &c., but thanks to the loyalty of

sore heads, all went away with a " flea
in their ear. Their long cherished hope of a
Republican split m this county is again
dashed to the ground, nor will ever be
realized so long as the Republican party of
Edgecombe is composed of its present ma
The correspondent, we have no doubt,
tells the truth. As long as Edgecombe

as heretofore, solidly for any man their

Dozixb's Cask. It is perhaps ungener
ous to call for severe punishments upon
convicts, for all err and all hope for mercy,
hut mercy should not be allowed to defraud
justice. It frequently happens, too that
mercy to the individual is cruelty to the
mass of the people, as well as injustice to
the dignity of the State.
In our last we alluded to the case of
Austin Dozier. who had been tried and
convicted of receiving goods knowing them
to be stolen at the present term of
our Superior Court. The case was not in
its particulars of special aggravation, but
there were circumstances that rendered it a
fit subject for example and precedent.
The evil associations connected with the
store, the long suspicion that had rested
upon it and the almost absolute impossi
bility of convicting a person from that
section of our town, combined to render
the case of crave importance, one that
should be made an example and whose
punishment should have been such as to
spread terror among those guilty of like
practices, and when we consider the rule
of law that imposes heavy penalties upon
offences of difficult detection, it seems that
s'x months in the county jail is a totally
It is difficult for a Judge, however, to
sympathize fully with a community indig
nant at constantly recurring crime, and
perhaps it is well that he should not, and
hence we have noth'nj to say in regard to
Dozier's sentence except that, in our opin
ion, it is inadequate and will have but
little effect towards the prevention of like
crimes in our midst. A negro, and worse
still, a white man, whose store is a com
mon receptacle for stolen goods, is a curse
to any community and when caught should
try a term in the penitentiary.

For the Enquirer-Southerner.
Mr. Editor : We have had a good
deal of rain in Pitt county for the last
several months. So much that the land is
washed and packed to such an extent that
it is out of the question for it to produce a
full crop of any kind of grain that is now
planted. And it is very doubtful in my
mind about a full crop of any sort this
year, though I am satisfied, that a short
crop of cotton would be a blessing to a
good many of our farmers. In fact it
might be a good thing if there was noth
ing made in the way of cotton, as some
people place there entire salvation upon
cotton crops alone, and go in debt for so
much guano to produce it. I am satisfied
by experience that a good farmer may be
benefited by using 6ome guano on his farm,
under some grams, such as wheat, oats,
peas, corn and sometimes a little will do un
der cotton, but let them not stake everything
on a cotton crop produced alone from
guano. All guano will not do, all mud
will not do, all clay will not do, all sand
will not do, I prefer to have some of all
these combined, as one is not good by
itself. Let us have a little of every kind
of manure, and all kinds of earth combin
ed, to insure a full crop of any guano. I
am not inclined to believe that it is best
for me to haul mud all the time and noth
ing to go with it. Mud by itself lacks life,
and it must have a constituent with it to
give it energy before it can be made opera
tive. Alone it is fit for nothing but to be
trampled under the foot of man and beast.
Hence I do not see how a man can make a
poor farm rich with poor mud and nothing
to go with it. He ma- work a long life
time in this way and never have an honest
living for himself. But let us use economy
in all things whatsoever wc do, and if this
mud is alone and worthless by itself, let
us give it a help mate, as for instance,
ashes, stable manure, cow-pen manure,
lime, &c. Now suppose you have r.o:
enough of these ingredients to put with
your mud, you must look out for help
Ibfcrwise, and I see no other plan than to
haul a little guano if vou are able to pay
for it. ' " J. J. R.

notable to do anj thing, was taken with
numbness and giddiness, w hen I would rise
up suddenly or when I rode on horseback, or
in other words, was in a manner dead lor
twelvemonths, nnd sot no relief from auv
medicine until I found your ' Liver Correc
tor. "My health is now steadllv and rapidly
improving. Yours gratefully.
