LETTER FROM PERQUIMANS. ; To Tim 'Economist": j i 1 . . We have never had, a more important campaign before the. people 6f North Carolina, than theone just ahead of us, especially when we consider the. National inter ests which will be involved in the Presidential contest. We caa not better subserve our National "interests than by putting out our best men and exerting our full efforts upon the State Ticket; We can rely with confidem e.upon the wisdom and sagacity-of the Greensboro contention and if this is followed up by prudence apd earnest work in the counties, and Senate! districts, we! can reasonably 'expect a triumphant campaign, which will settle North Carolina politics, for years in the best interests of her citizens M We have' just finished up. in the short period of .three-days, the business 'of our Superior Court-a most flattering evidence of the good order and harmony of our society, but exhibiting a discouraging pro spect for theionorable profession of the Law. The charge of "his new honor' to the Grand Jury was very good and. his warmth in its- delivery seemed ominous of "terror i to evil-doers." . ' .' I have heard a very general wish ex pressed, which ' I hope will not be disappointed, that the Economist may be represented at our District convention in the person of its Editor, and if so, that, with tlie nurricroiis and able staff which is un- Her his command to assist him, something more may be done to make its influence and usefulness felt throughout the entire State, in the coming campaign.
