We arc furnishing tho public with our p-aper for the Campaign at "0 cents. L-t our friends take advantage of this offfr. i MOORE vs. BILLIARD. It is commanded that wo touch not, taste not, handle not the un clean tiling," and perhaps we have suffered in not obeying this injunc tion and having anything 10 say in the matter of the Judgeship for this District. We are of course opposed to both of the candidates and favor one over the other not because we love Ililliard more, but Moore less. We believe Judge Moore possesses ability,but his nature is too passion ate and tyrannical, and his passions too little controled, to make a just and honest Judge. His complicity too with an organization in Chowan, gotten up as a counter concern to the Ku Klux, shews a dangerous disregard for law and partizan ha tred too bitter to dwell in the breast of one who is to decide between man and man his just and inalienable rights. Tho conduct of Judge Moore also in the Halifax Grand Jury case was such as would not have been tolerated for one moment in England nor any other country in which there was a semblance of constitutional liberty. The un thinking may regard this act as but the emanation of a too fervent zeal, but it was in reality a high-handed usurpation for which the Judge should have been impeached, and which should ever disqualify him from holding any public office by Which the right3 of the people would be imperiled. These things, and the evidences of un?nvpmsW" r"" sion that have been evinced in our own county, as for instance in the case of Mr. John Knight, show that whatever ability Judge Moore may have he is not the man to whom could safely be intrusted the rights of the people. As far as Mr. Ililliard is concern ed we know little. He has never been a public man and has no re cord, except that in the local poli tics of his county he has, we think, succeeded in making himself quite odioug to his people. He is not re cognized as a man of the ability of Judge Moore, but that is a minor concern if there are other natural moral qualifications. As we said above, the whole mat ter is an "unclean thing" and no Democrat should have anything to do with it. It is a family fuss, let them fight it. THE LATEST APPEAL FROM LOU ISIANA.

The famine in India has attained gigantic proportions, the British government undertaking the oner ous task of feeding three-and-a-half millions of destitute people. Very gloomy results are anticipated in the face of this appalling calamity, as in the stricken district there can ts no crop for six month to coat. E. R. STAMPS, - - - Editor. SPECIAL TAX BONDS. Our people will be gratified to learn that the case of Self vs. Jen, kins, State Treasurer, lias been heard before Chief Justice Waite, and that his decision has been made in favor of the State. The argu ment upon which the decision is J based does not touch the matter of the constitutionality of the bonds, but relies entirely upon the fact that the Treasurer was compelled to disburse the interest collected for the Special Tax bonds because he was so required by the Legisla ture. We give below the 'closing portion of the decision : The immediate question for our deter mination, therefore, is, not whether the State should proride the means and require the Treasurer to replace this fund, but whether it has so done. When the order to use the $150,000 was made, ihe Treasurer was authorized to replace it out of the first money which cane into the Treasury by way of dividends or taxes. When that of the $200,000 was ordered, he was authorized to replace it from dividends and taxes for general purposes The Itevenue Act of 1871, however, expressly prohibited him from using for that purpose any money col lected under its authority. The acts ol 1873 aud 1874 do not contain any such prohibi tion, but they each direct that the taxes levied shall be applied to defray the expen ses of the State government, and to pay ap propriations for charitable and penal institu tions. This is the statement of the special object to which the taxes are to be applied, required to be made in every law levying taxes, and the Constitution expressly pro hibits their application to any other. While, therefore, the law does not prohibit the re imbursement of the special tax fund out of the money raised under its authoiity, the Constitution does. The expenses on account of which the money was taken from the fund, have already been paid with the money of the State. It is true, the money paid ought not to have been so used, but it was none the less on that account the money of the Slate. The bondholder might perhaps, if I no Tt l ivilan l: I 1 1 1 roma nail 1 ii ina I nn r i compel its application to the paymeut of j the interest on their bonds, but until so i applied it did not become their property, and ! remained that of the State. " i It is not claimed that there is now any , money in the Treasury except that whichl has been collected from taues levied under the uevenue Laws of 1873 and 1874, and it ia clear to our minds thei e is no law existing which requires, or even authorizes, the Treasurer to reimburse the special fund from that. Tbe Stale may be under obli gation to provide for such reimbursement, but the State and the Treasurer occupy different positions. The State ia the debtor and bound by its pledge of faith to provide means and pay its debts. The Treasurer ia but an agent of the State, and bouud ouly t pay its debts when required to do so by a valid law. If such a law exists and he re fuses to act, a proper court will by mandamus compel him to perform his duty. If he threatens to divert money appropriated for tbe payment of a debt, on proper applica tion, he may be restrained. But to auhor ize interferei.ee ia either case, it must clear lyappear that he wrongfully reluses to execute a valid law which has been enacted by the legislative department for his guid ance. The court cannot make laws for him. It can only compel hiui to execute such as have been made. As there is therefore no money in the Treasury which the Treasurer is authorized or required by any existing law to appro priate for the reimbursement of the special tax fund, we cannot restrain him from pay ing out the funds in his hands until the reimbursement has been made. The princi pal in this case cannot be reached through the agent now before the (,'ourt. The bill is dismissed with costs a ne Din is dismissed with costs. , (Th. other cases between the same par- ! sfallunder the principle of the aboe ! ties fall under the principle of the abo opinion, and are also dismissed with cost-.) I 2ND DISTRICT. There is danger that the people of the 2nd Congressional District, knowing the fact that they are hopelessly overslaughed by the colored vote, will lose energy and cease to work where their work would be appreciative and effective. It is true that there 13 not the slightest hope of their being able to elect a Representative to Congress, but their vote for Col. Tool will count as much as that from any other portion of the State and should bo polled. The Executive committees in the counties compos ing this district have much more arduous duties imposed upon them than if they had full tickets in the field. The whole work devolves upon them, and they should see that a complete organization were kept up and that there were sub committees in every township to bring out the full vote. If these committees are active and diligent much more could be done through them in this district than by a contesting campaign with opposing candidates. A COMPLETED TICKET. The Conservative ticket in the gtate for cWress was comnleteil 0 1 j with the exception of the Second District which may or may not nominate a candidate, by the re nomination atr Wilkesbors last " eanesuay week of Hon J 1 xiuu W. M. Iiobbins, in the Seventh District: The Charlotte Observer says : Hav ing said that he was tho most popu lar man in the District, it only remains for us to add his name to ti e the list composed of Ashe, Scales and Vance, aa the representatives of the Conservative party from Western North Carolina in the next Congress. This is the strongest team wo have put in the field since the war, and the mere mention of their names, in connection with the candidacy, is a sy nonym of Conservative triumph . A bill is now before the British Parliament having for its object the restraining of the ritualists, or as they are called, High Church par ty, which places Mr. Gladstone in a most awkward position. The ritualists are of course tories, and Mr. Gladstone, the leader of the liberal party,is said to be a ritualist, and with his whole party at his back is resisting a measure which, it would seem, should command the sympathy of the democracy of Brittain. No wonder Mr. Glad stone's name is mentioned in con nection with the University of Oxford. FRANCE. The N-ey-York Herald, of the ltth inst.y contains an able ed itorial on the situation in France and closes with tbe following. The sentimental period to republics is rather sickening and is unworthy the article : It is possible tbe Uouapartists may win. Ve can see how imperialism can return to France. ?ut it is not for us to welcora it or to repine at the spectacle of a country so noble, so rich, so endowed with splendid quali ties, with so much civilization and enterprise and thought, a country which has dono so much for freedom and progress in every way, passing again under the dominion of a beaid- j less .Bonaparte, whose traditions come from the Nanoleona of the eighteenth of Brumare and the sec- j 6nce his failure to get the nomi ond of December, whose counsellors j nation for Congress cm not lis too would be Kouher, who never failed I highly commended. to oe tne lacKey oi tne empire, anu Fleury, who propelled the mas-acres i . t i i n .1 -. . -i : on the boulevards, and Bazaine, who j was condemned to death for having; surrendered without cause the finest , infln j in poril. fortress and the best armies in France.

Charleston county is perhaps worse in this particular than any other portion of the Stale. From the highest to the lowest State officer in the district, nearly all have been charged with, and many of them convicted of, one or more offences."

So the women who beguiled the Grand Duke Nicholas, and. was the cause of his arrest for stealing and presenting her his mother's diamonds, is an American adventuress after all, in spite of statements to the contrary. She was a Miss Ely, the daughter of a Northern clergyman; who settled subsequently in Missouri. She mar ried clandestinely a man named Blackford, and on his death led a fast, reckless and dissipated life, first in Philadelphia, and - afterwards in New York and Paris. She is said to bo very beautiful, very fascinating, very unscrupulous and exacting, and altogether a dangerous woman. The Grand Duka Nicholas has found her to ba so, to the scandal of the Eussian court and to hit ova great cost. !
