We are furnishing the public with our paper for the Campaign at 50 cents. Let our friends take advantage of this offer. DUTIES. The duties of a good citizen are complex and manifold, considered purely as a citizen. He is under an obligation to his family as well as society and the State, and he is not fulfilling the demands of his nature as long as he allows himself to be absorbed in any one or two ot these to the ignoring of the others. A man is not living up to his full requirements if he devotes all his energy to the promotion of the welfare of his own family and does nothing for the weal of the society in which he lives and moves, nor for the state that throws its arms of protection about thb liberty of his person and the enjoyment of his property. The duties one owes his family are so well guarded by an instinct of his nature, his own love of self,that it is rare that it becomes neccssa ry for him to be reminded of them, and it is that to society and the state that has to be forced so fre quently upon his attention. It is not a simple subject of school boy declamation that every man exerts an influence on society and is responsible for the way that influence is used. It is to the be nevolent operations of good men in the community in which they live, the word of encouragement, the well seasoned precept and the upright example, that the world owes most of its present worth, and when this power ceases It will be the stopping of a wheel that governs a large part of the better machinery of life. And so also as society increases to the State. Every man, considered simply as an integral part of the great whole, has his duty to per form. If this fact were recognized and acted upon, if each individual would feel that he personally was in part responsible for the evils that afflict the state, howBoou would the remedy be applied and the dishon est office-holder be made to feel the indignation of the people. The family and social duties are always imperative, but it is only on statod occasions that the state calls upon her sons for action in her behalf. This summer is such a time and North Carolina, burdened by the shameful incubus of Radical ism, calls upon her children for aid. Will they prove recreant ? Heaven forbid ! ANOTHER SHIFT. A intelligent gentlemen of our county who heard the various can didates last Saturday at Bethel, gives it a3 his opinion that Maj. Yates will carry the first district by a handsome majority. The Major seems to make a good impression wherever he goes, not only as a man of sense, but as a man who will command respect for his moral worth and integrity. We need sadly more public men of such character. Our informant gives also as his impression, formed from facts that he was enabled to gather, that Cobb and Ransom would both with draw before the election in favor of A. M. Moore, Esq. The Rads have made several efforts to heal the breach made by Ransom and seem to think that it can be done now by a mutual compromise be twe en the rival candidates on one not inimicable to either. The shift, however, will be barren of any beneficial result, for we hope Maj. Yates holds the winning hand. Another comet has been discoverd in the vacinity of Jupiter so there are now two to be seen in the heav ens. The Richmond Enquirer thinks if they should be running on the same track, a collision is im minent unless one or the other switches off. The man who signs a Radical's bond in this county does him a far greater favor than five hundred men who vote for him. THE CONVENTION. The Chairman of the Democratic Executive Committee for Edge combe, as will be seen elsewhere, has issued a call for a convention to take place in Tarboro' on next Saturday, the 11th inst. It ia earnestly hoped that a goodly num ber of people will heed the call and come and add their voices in the council of the county. There is considerable diversity as to the expediency of any course to be adapted, and hence there should be a free and candid discussion before any definite plan is settled upon Your county has a right to your advice, come and give it. HON. JOSIAH TURNEB- We have always maintained that this gentleman was a pure patriot. had done more for the Conservative party than any dozen other men in North Carolina, and wa9 entitled to any office in the gift of the peo pie ; and now, when the position which he had a right to expect has been given to another, to see him doing all he can for his election, regardless of adulations and entic ing flatteries of friends and foes, is a picture of self-sacrificing patriot ism worthy of emulation. The people will reward Mr. Turner yet The Wilmington Journal, of Sat urday, chronicles a case of larceny committed by a negro, in New Han over county, which came before Judge Russell for trial at the last term of Superior Court. The theft was proved and the negro convicted Thereupon in the tender yearning of his heart for negro votes for Judge, his Honor suspended judg ment upon payment of costs and turned the rogue loose upon the community to ply his villiany The negro had stolen some oats, the property of Major C. W. Mc Clammy. Whereupon the Journal asks : " Are the hard working white people of this District willing to go to the trouble and labor and expense of planting, cultivating and harvesting their crops to have them stolen by negroes cr by rogues o: any color ? Do they think it will stop stealing when in a clear case the judgment is suspended on pay ment of cost and the rogue bound over to the next Court to put him on his good behavior i And what is the good behavior of a convicted rogue worth ? And yet this re construction legacy of ours, Judge Russell, thinks is an all sufficient punishment for a rogue." This is no rare occurrence among Radical judges. The Philadelphia Ledger says " While now in the heat of summer trade and business of every charac ter are exceedingly dull, there is nevertheless an inceasing hopeful ness as to the future in nearly all financial and commercial depart ments, with an evident improve ment in the current traffic in many descriptions of merchandise. The foil trade, it is believed, will early manifest increased spirit, the first evidence of which will be more in quiry for money, followed by higher rates of interest." The people of the State may take courage, and believe that after thi s and the next month passes, their trade and finances will be in a much better condition than for some time past. Have you ever realized the full enormity of the Civil Rights bill, and what a gross attack it was upon the poorer classes of whites ? If so how can your humanity allow you to vote for or, still more, sign the bond of a man who advocates it. It is poor freedom indeed where a man cannot act freely. The colored man ws once a slave and then had to act as he was told, now he is perfectly free, yet he still acts as a slave to Radical leaders. To be free is to act freely. Tom Collins says every radical you meet in the 8th Congressional Dist. comences giving tbe sign and grips of the "Invisible Empire" commonly know as the Ka Klux Klan. "To what base use " flee." Oh ! my countrymen ! Rally this last time and elect me, says the Civil Righter, and there will be no parlor and no kitchen. Vote down the wealth and intelli gence of the country. Pabis, July 5. The political' gitu ation is serious. The Legitimatists have resolved to make an attempt to unseat the present Ministry upon in terpellation in regard to the suspen sion of the L. Union, which comes before the Assembly next Tuesday. They are negotiating with the Left to obtain its support. The counter coalition that the Left Centre, with the Eight Centre, are in favor of Casimir Perier's Constitutional bill is also professed, but there ia ground for the belief that Marshal MoMahon has intimated to the Legitimatists that h will not accept the resign tion of the Ministry even if it is da feated, and it is reported that he will IuLiameS8ag0t0the AMefflbl7 EDITORIAL BREVITIES. Boston Cobbett, who shot John Wilkes Booth, lives in Camden, N. J. Dr. Livingstone's family will re ceive from Parliament $15,000. Senator Schurz is reported to be at rest on Narragansett Pier. Fishing, or "sleeping it off?" Of 182 boys in a Connecticut school 181 are officially reported as liars. Old Connecticut is hard to beat. Large numbers oi male and female clerks have been discharged from the various departments. The next national convention of the Young Men's Christian Associa tion will be held in Richmond next June. Roman Catholics in Wisoonsin are leaving the granges, the Bishop of Milwaukee having issued a pastoral against them. The New York Herald sends a special train to Saratoga with its paper every Sunday morning during the summer season. The St. Louis bridge, the celebra tion of the completion of which oc curred on the 4th July, cost some $9,000,000. The Baltimore Gazette in inclined to the impression that Gov. Kemper, of Virginia, writes too much, or at least, that he writes "not wisely, but too well." How we have improved upon those dreadful Puritan days when none was of sufficient importance personally to have discipline and the moral law suspended and set aside to save the feelings of delinquents ! The Project of Improving the Mississippi River, so that the great Father of Waters shall be open to vessels of the largest size, is of the same importance to the country as the problem of an interoceanio canal. The official organ of the German Government expresses great regret at the departure of Minister Bancroft The Emperor has presented his por trait to Mr. Bancroft and exhibited great regret at his departure. A Suggestion is made in a con temporary that the Vice President of the United States should also be Governor of the District of Columbia. This would give the Vice President some employment. There has been a general stampede of Government officials from Wash ington for the summer resorts. As a result, Washington is more honest at this time than at any other season of the year. The Virginia papers agree that Gov. Kemper has fully vindicated himself from the charges recently brought against him of co-operating with Mosby in selling out the Con servative party of Virginia. General Beauregard is reporteed as having received and accepted an offer from the Argentine Republic to become its chief engineer at a salary of $20,000 a year to direct the con struction of defensive works. The Civil Rights measure has proven a most serious bomb-shell in the ranks of the Republicans of the State. No white man can swallow it, and yet he can not act with the Republican party without endorsing it. It will be rather sad anouncement to tourists Bostonwards that the Supreme Judicial Court of Massacu setts has decided that the Prohibitory Liquor law is not unconstitutional and that beer is an unlawful bever age. The Chicago Tribune thus puts it in reference to the glorious Fourth : "The day we do not celebrate. The American eagle is not particularly strong in his flight or very gritty in his scream to-day-he will fly low and sing small." Swarms of grasshoppers; those pests of the Western former, have committed such fearful ravages upon the growing crops in Southwestern Minnesota that the people ar e al ready in a condition of destitution. Governor Davis has appealed to the Granges to do what they can to re lieve their fellow farmers in distress. The new ship-channel from Balti more to deep water though the Pa- tapsco river, was formally opened on j Thursday last, giving to Baltimore an easy access at mean low tide to vessels carrying twenty-four feet of water. The opening up of this chan nel is considered of great importance to the commercial interests of Balti more, and the Gazette devotes nearly its whole paper to a description of tbe occasion. The New Orleans Cotton Exchange crop report to June 30th. says of North Carolina : "Forty-one coun ties report the weather less favorable, an average decrease of nineteen per cent; planting ia two and three weeks later; fair average stand; crop clean and healthy and growing finely, though small and backward. Dei crease in the use of fertilizers forty per cent." Count de Chambord has issued a manifesto to the French nation. It will be recognized as a sample Cham bord manifesto, containing nothing new and repeating what the Count has already proclaimed a hundred times. MacMahon is complimented as the present protector of France, but if France wishes to do right and to come out all right, she will recall Chambord and empower him to ad minister the aflkiri of a "French Christian monarchy." . The Beecheb Scandal A Point Blank Denial. The following ap pears in the Brooklyn (N. Y.) Eagle of Wednesday: "To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle : I have just returned to the city to learn that application has been made to Mrs. Victoria Woodhull for letters of mine, supposed to contain infor mation respecting certain infamous stories agrinst me. I have no objec tion to have the Eagle state, in any way it deems fit, that Mrs. Woodhull or any other person or persons who may have letters of mine in their possession have my cordial consent to publish them. In this connection and at this time I will only add that the stories and rumors which have for some time past been circulated about me are grossly untrue, and I stamp them in general and in partic ular as utterly false Respoctfully, Henkt Ward Beech ee." The Judicial Ermine. In the 4th Judicial Dishict Judge Russell, in the 5th District Judge Buxton, in the 8th District Mr. W. H. Bailey, and in the 9th District Judge .Logan, all Kadicals, have an nounced themselves Independent Candidates lor Judge in their re spective Districts. The cause of this is a thin scheme on the part of these Radicals to make votes. All of the distriots are known to be stanchly Conservative, and these gentlemen all understanding this fact have suddenly become wonderfully regard ful of the proprieties, and express themselves as regarding the Judicial ermine as too sacred and holy a thing to be worn by the nominee of politicabpartv thus they hope to gain Conservative support on the plea of freedom from party objections and consequent impartiality in the dis charge of their official duties, if elec ted. Monroe Jinqmrer. This is the way the New York World receives the news from Maine "All hail to the Democracy of Maine! Dirigo may well be the legend on their State's escutcheon, for they point the path of duty and of victory to the Democracy of every State. Har money, free trade, home rule these are their watchwords and their sacred pledges to a burdened people open, bold, plain. Isot a word trims, not a syllable that palters. Statesman's work was done yesterday at Portland by Mr. Samuel D. Leavitt, Dr. Garselon, Eben Pilsbury, and their fellow-members of the Maine conven tion. Their standard-bearer, Joseph Titcomb, is wisely chosen. Their cause is just, they have laid hold of the living issues of a glorious and near future. God grant them speedy victory !"
