Cotton. That the cotton crop of Edge
combe is not an average one is certain, but
how far short it will fall is almost impos
sible to say. We have talked to many of
our most auccessf ul and practical farmers
and they differ so widely that anything like
ru accurate report is not practicable. For
instance, one of our largest fanners puts
the present crop at 12 per cent, below an
average, another at 15 ier cent., another at
20 and another, one of the first men in the
county, as low as S3 per cent.

A Double Homicide Whiskkt A5D
Crime. Near Red Hill Church, a colored
church about five miles from Whitaker'ft, in
Edgecombe county, was the location of A
scence that, for the sake of our county's
good name, we are loath to chronicle.
On last Sunday at the above mentioned
place a large crowd of colored people had
assembled for reliirioui services. Near th
church is a country store, kept by Mr.
Geo. Dixon, where, most unfortunately for
this occasion, whiskey was sold. It seems,
from the U'st authority we could gather,
that about half a dozen colored men were
iu the store drinking, and became after'
awhile so boisterous that tbey were ordered
out, at w hich they went out, but "were so
enraged that they got sticks and threatened
to attack Dixon, whereupon Dixon got his
pistol aud said that he would shoot any
man who should attempt to come iu. A
colored man named Geo. Lockhart then
came to the door, but made no attempt to
come in, and was fired at by Dixon, the
ball striking him in the heart, from which
he died in about fifteen minutes. The ne
groes then became very violent in their
demonstrations, and when Peter Pittman,
a colored man In the employ of Dixon '
came out of the store with a pistol he was
stricken on Ids head by Daniel Bwadnax,
colored, -with a club, Inflicting a wound
from which he died Sunday night. Por
considerable time during the evening the
negroes were furious, and Dixon was com
pelled to keep liimself shut up in his store,
but wiser counsels prevailing among them,
they ret red without molesting him. Dixon
was arrested on Monday, and Is oov con
fined iu our county jail. Daniel Broadnax
is still at large.
This fatal and disgraceful affair sug
gests one point that it would be well far
our legislators to consider, L e. to pass a
law, with a heavy penalty, against the sell
ing of spirituous liquors on Sunday. The
matter is a terrible commentary upon the
general liquor traffic.

Os Dit. It is generally reported, with
what degree of t-uth it is impossible to say,
that Judge Hilliard will appoint Mr. W.
L. Cherry, of Greenville, Clerk of the 8u
perior Court of Edgecombe. If this is
true, it indicates two facts in regard to the
new Judge that may be worthy of note :
First, his contempt for the Radical party
of Edgecombe, there being no one whom
he is willing to appoint Clerk. In the sec
ond place it indicates an amount of parti-
zan zeal that looks bodly in one holding
such an office as that of judge. It is pre
sumeable that Judge HiUiard will, if pos
sible, appoint one of his own party, but
if that cannot be done he should not have
party so much at heart as to make him go
outside of the county for his appointee.

The Status of CuSee in the West
Chicago, 8ept. 9th, 1874.
Editor E iQUiaKH-SouTHKEKKK : Two
weeks in this great city has enabled me to
form a very cerrect idea of the feelings of
these people toward the South ; and I know
it will be gratifying to your readers to learn
that the best informed and most substantial
men of the West are open in their denun
ciations of the Civil Rights bill and federal
interference with Southern affaire. Men
who have been Republicans since 1860
boldly denounce the treatment of the
South, and say it is time the people of
that section were let alone. They say the
present action of the Government is for
political effect, and, ccraeqaeatiy, fed dis
gusted with their party leaders for encour
aging such uagrant outrages. I have not
heard a single man speak otherwise than
kindly of tlie white people of the South.
Many have told me that they have been
surprised at the passiveness of the South
ern men. All express the opinion that if
the whites and blacks of the South were
left to work out their own differences it
would not be long before peace and good
order would reign throughout the Cotton
Here the rights of the colored people are
entirely subservient to the wishes of the
whites. A negro is positively a negro in
Chicago, and if he does not walk exactly
right no mercy or compassion is shown
him. I have talked with quite a number
of negroes, and have yet to meet the first
one that believes the Civil Rights bl will
benefit his people in the North. I am stop
ping at the Palmer House (the finest and
grandest hotel in America; it cost $3,500,
000), and have repeatedly heard guests say
they would aid in mobbing any negro that
attempted to stop nere under the Civil
Rights bill. Pur negroes will net believe
this, nor will they believe that I bare fre
quently seen well-dressed and educated
colored women refused admission into the
ladies' car on Northern railroads, and sent
into the smokins cars. Alas! the colored
people of the South know not how sadly
they are being imposed on, and duped, and
how madly they are acting m listening to
and being guided by their contemptible
political leaders. I fear the silver lining
to the cloud that overhangs their destiny
will not be revealed to them till the prime
of the lives of the present generation has
been wasted and squandered by their wick
ed, selfish and unscrupulous leaders, whose
power over them is as strong as it is cor
rupt. Would that every colored person in
the South could have seen and heard what
I have during the past month. Northern
men have told me that the only way to
dispose of the negroes South would be to
"exterminate or colonize them in Africa.
I could never feel this way towards them,
nor can you find any true men in the South
that ever could. We feel that in many in
stances they have acted badly and rashly,
but as a people they have acted well, con
sidering the circumstances and influences
they have be --n subjected to. "Ignorance

praise of one of your friends.
llios. J. Beamy is here with his "House

ful, and if he meets with the success he
deserves he will soon be Mr. Reamy, for

WASHESaTOS, N. C, I
Sept 11th, 1874.
Dbab EsQcrREB-SorTHKBNEB : Your
special reporter reached this place in full
time to participate in the heartfelt rejoic
ings of the good people of the First Con
gressional District over the recent unprece
dented victory for Democracy and its gal
lant standard bearer, Maj. Jesse J. Yeates,
on yesterday, the 10th inst. Early in the
morning large crowds began to arrive from
the counties which compose this District ;
and never before did Washington witness
such a vast concourse of people in its lim
its. There were fully five thousand pres
ent, and the clashing of cymbola and beat
ing of drums must have astonished the na
tives, or rather the more verdant of the
About 10 o'clock the steamer Terry ar
rived from Newbern freighted with a
goodly number of persons some to enjoy
the celebration some to enjoy Washing
ton some to enjoy her daughters. As
she neared the wharf, booming cannons and
loud hozzahs re-echoed again and again
till Beaufort s "coming man, the young
and talented Sheppard, boarded her to de
liver the address of welcome, which he did
in his usually happy and eloquent man
ner, and was responoou to m uehaii or the
voyagers and in tho name of the white
people of Craven by Newborn's gifted son,
M. lier SWTenson, tq.
We would be glad to linger awhile in
the streets, and give your readers a graphic
description of beautiful Washington, and
tell them how ihe has heroically arisen
from the disastrous effect of the late war
between the States; but must now join
the procession, as with flying banners
and martial music it marches through
the principal streets to the assembly ground
in the fields lying east of the tow"n, where
preparations bad been made for the multi
tude to celebrate their glorious achieve
ments in their political struggle as was
their wont on the field of battle.
Here had been erected by the Committee
of Arrangements seats for the numerous
listeners, platforms on either side for the
two visiting bands, and a stand for speak
ers, reporters, and the bevy of fair ladies
chosen to represent the different counties
of the District They, we mean the la
dies, were appropriately clad in the emblem
of punty, and seemed to vie with eacn
other in their transcendent lovlincss. In
agreeing with Lord Lyttleton that
"A woman's noblest station is retreat
Uer fairest virtues fly from public sight,"
we do not mean to impeach the propriety
of their presence os- an occasion of this
kkid ; and although we do not desire to be
personal in our allusions, we feel con
strained to speak of the stella-like loveliness
of bright-eyed Pamlico, and how can we
help mentioning the fair vision which en
chanted admiring eyes, the gentle dignity
and refined countenance of Beaufort's
aptly chosen representative. Something
good could be tmthfuily said of the repre
sentatives of the remaining fourteen coun
ties, but our time and space are alike limi
ted, and we must now pass on to the other
important features of the day the speak
ers and the dinner.
After the Rev. Mr. Green, of the Pres
byterian Church, in a touching prayer, had
feelingly invoked the blessing of Almighty
God on the exercises of the day, Hon. F.
B. Satterthwaite introduced to the audience
J. M. Long, Esq., of Craven, who led off
in an hour's speech, replete with political
information, in which he discussed the
issues of the day in a manner which his
reputation as a very superior orator caused
us to expect; and we were truly glad to
know that there were Bevw-al of Edge

hero of Lewis Store, the only Democratic
precinct in your county,) present to be
edified by his reasoa aM -wquence.
Maj. Yeates. ti-on of the dy and Con
gressmaa el followed Mr. Long. This
craiiant xitieman who is as unflinchingly
true to his race and his cause now as he
was in the dark days of our civil struggle,
is not wholly unknown to many of your
readers. His style is the happy ana numor
ous one which so prominently character
izes Gov. Vance as a stump orator, while,
as his interest in his subject waxes warm,
the lustre of bis eye is an index of the no
ble and patriotic impulses which actuate
him as a "Southern man of Southern prin
ciples." If there is a man among the
flowery fields of this sunny land of ours
who would willingly lay down his all for
the welfare of tie South, that man is
Jesse J. Yeates. We do not mean to be
fulsome. We believe him to be a patriot
Indeed; and there is not one pulsation of
his heart which is not in unison with the
interests of his people. Among the faith

next Congress of the United States, there
is not one of whoti the people of this State

voice will ever sound in defense of the
abused, insulted, dewn-trodden white peo

All honor to his name!
The elements were unkind enough to in
terrupt the Major before finishing his very
entertaining speech, and all out-of-door-pleasures
were thereby put an end to
even many were driven from the good old
North Carolina dinner of "scorched" pig

reluctantly prepared for them in the great
We haDDened about this time to fall in
with Woodson, of the Raleigh News, and
remembeiing ws had to "go down the
street to see a nan on business," we left
the grounds and sought shelter elsewhere,
as we were "dry" and wished to remain
so. About 5 o'clock the visitors began to
disperse for their various homes, and a lit

the triumph of Democracy over Radical
