The Tarboro' Southerner. TARBORO', NORTH CAROLINA. WILLIAM BIGGS, Editor. THVnSDIY, : J : t: AI M ST 10, 18G9. The absence of the Editor a portion cf this week will, we trust, accouut for the want of variety ia this issue of the SOL'THF.ltNF.It. The Sew Jlovcinriit. The New York Journal of Commerce has always been regarded as one of the ablest and most consistent Democratic papers of the Country, and it is with Treasure that wo are enabled to bring forward such a powerful auxiliary in behalf of the new movement that is now exeroisin'g the minds of the people of this and other Southern States. In its iue of August the 7th we find the following editorial, which in a few words states the true situation of affairs and definitely defines the correct policy to be followed by the Southern people : "Tennessee follows Virginia. Sen-tor is a political twin brother of Walker. Like causes produce like effects in both States. Next' will come Mississippi. And then Texas. .This conservative Republicanism is (lie sword that cuts all the hard knots with which radicalism would tie up the South. The formation of this new party iu the South is the brightest political idea of the age. The name itself iiieana nothing; but the purpose of'the "party which adopts it signifies a great deal. Conservative Republicanism at the South is the sacrifice of great bundles of old prejudice on the altar of a rational union and a healthful progress. It recognizes all the consequences of war. the death ef secession, the freedom f the slaves, their admission to the ballot, the necessity of the Union to the happiness of the South as well as of the North. It is a complete surrender (if everything that the rebellion sought for, and it asks but for one smull favor in return. It begs the privilege of coming back into the L'uion, and working for its advance ment and glory side by side with the North, E.tst and West. Univeraul sutTrag- and universal amnesty are its motto. To a party full of such jast and honorable sentiments it is folly for the radical faction to oppose itself. Justice, forgiveness and liberality are sure to win fiie day, in the long run. against injustice, cherisiieed malice and narrow-mindedness. The Butlers, Brown-lows and Boutwells will fight against it in vain ; and the more the President permits himself to be identified with their side the worse will it be for his reputation. It is net too late for the President to do something towards retrieving his Tennessee blunder. The contest in ?!iisissippi is still an open one i-r him. lie has wisely declined thus far to rancrc himself against the conservative republicans of that State. Perhaps he was waiting to see how the Tennessee election would turn out. lie has now scon, and should profit by the lessen. He should iit ouce forbid his secretaries to commit him to the raii cal fortunes in Mississippi, lie should be more than neutral in that campaign, lie should declare himself boldy for the Dent party. The conservative Republicans of Mississippi can get along far better without the President than the President and his friends can get along without them. Should he persist in repeating the Tennessee mistake iu Mis- j sippi. impartial judges who are watching his course will be forced to the conclusion either that he lacks good judgment, or that he has abandoned the dunes and opportunities of his position to a few of his most blundering and bigoted secretaries." a. " The Tarboro' Southerner announces that it adopts the platform ' of universal haiiVage and jrenernl amnesty. This is the I '.:ilf. ::i of the Republican party of North Carolina." Standard. When the writer in the Standard penned the tbove lines, he, knowingly and wilfully, told a deliberate falsehood. The Southerner has not announced " that it adopts the platform of universal Suffrage aud general Amnesty" and it will never advocate a policy that continues the disfranchisement cf a largo proportion of the intelligence and virtue of the State. It is the distincs tive features between Universal Amnesty and general Amnesty that marks the difference between Radicalism and ft more liberal spirit of republicanism. The former, upon which the South-K liner has distinctly coupled its adherence to Universal Suffrage, declares that the political disabilities of every white man shall be removed at once and forever ; while the latter, upon which the Radicals take their stand, is intended to prevent Thirty Thousand white North Caroliniaus from ever office in this State. AVe consider it worse than idle to foolishly fight against a policy that has been irrevocably decided against us, but the acceptance of it in good faith by the Southern people wc truly be" lievo will be instrumental in removing the odious disfranchising clauses that now operate iu so damaging a manner against the best interests cf the South. 1 he Radical party of this State, represented by Ilolden, has taken a positive stand against the removal of these disabilities. That party has maintained its existence solely upon the persecution and proscription of the best men o.' the State, and it well knows when they are removed its knell of deslruc-. t;o; has been sounded. This spirit of moderation, concilia-ti ii and kindness ia Bwecping like a tornado over the whole couatry, aud wo nowhere see its progress opposed save in the rinks f.f the extreme Radicals, who well foresee that the sceptre is departing from their hands. The temp-M uae societies of the I us led Slates have a membership of 4'l J M),j. The Radical Party in North Carolina has about played out. The different wings are fighting each other with, a ferocity equal to the celebrated mauling of the Kilkenny Cats. The arrogant and lawless position assumed by Ilolden has been justly re sented and denounced by the more liberal members of the republican party who have freely expressed their abhorrence of the extreme measures of proscription and disfranchisement that has marked the course of the radical wing. The Newbera Times and Ruthfords ton Star, both republican sheets, are after the " Gov." with a sharp stick. The latter paper, in alluding to an article in the Standard under the caption of "Is the Governor to be Ims peached" hits that functionary the following hard licks "This is evidently an attempt on the part of Gov. Ilolden and the Standard, to blujj'anH scare off acy disposition toexposetheGovernor'slateacts of tyranny and usurpation. But we say, go it with your threats and abuse, they will avail nothing. No body is scared but you. We scorn your threats and 1efv their execution. "A guilty conscience, needs no ac. cuser," you have proven your guilt, by attempting to defeud yourselves, and abuse others, before you have been attacked. Why do you ask the question ? " Is the Governor to be impeached?" Where did you get the idea? who told you that he was to be impeached ? You certaiuly had some reason for asking this grave and serious question. What is it? Is it possible that Gov. Ilolden ; couscious of his disrespect, and abuse of the law, has forsc-eu 1. is impeachment? -Why should he ask such a question? we say lie, because it is evident that he, the Governor, is the author of the article refered to, unless he anticipated something of the kind ? Well uiay he fear the consequences of his disrespect and abuse of the law, for in our humble opinion he has been guilty of acts for which his impeachment would be but mild punishmcut." " The Tarboro' Southerner says it advocates universal suffrage aud universal amnesty, aud further adds, 'Our whole objee' is to defeat radicalism in ihis State.' " As far as the principle of amnesty and suffrage goes we are with the Southerner but we are extremely sorry to he ir that paper say its " Whole object is to defeat radicalism in this State." It should have some higher aim, it should look to the weli'are ot the massess and the good of the country." New hern Times If defeating the proscriptive and intolerant measures of radicalism is not looking " to the welfare of the masses and the good of the country " thcu wc most frankly confess that we know not whereof we speak. It is this saruo spirit of destructive radicalism that has fettered the ener. gies and thwarted the best intentions of the Southern people since the close of the war, aud it is this same determination to proscribe the best in our land, which, if permitted to take its course, will forever remain hanging like an incubus upon the energies and exertions of our people. - 1 Putiniut Query. The Rutherfordtoa Star, a Republican paper, well asks, "Under what authority is the Standard doing the State Printing since the ileparture of the State Printer, N. Paige, from the State ? Has the Standard any legal right to do the State Printing " ? Since the smash up of the Radical party in this State, the different wings are beginning to "blab" about the rascalities of each other and we may soon expect some rich, rare and racy revelations. Judge Dent's Erply to PrcsUrct Cranl. The following is an extract from a letter written on Saturday by Judge Dcat in reply to one received from President Grant the early part of the present month. President Grant, in the letter refer red to, gave his reasons for casting the weight of his influence in favor of the Republican pariy iu Mississippi, and it js to that part that Judge Deut replies as follows : " Is it reasonable to suppose that a people having the free choice of their representatives would elect for their ruleis a class of politicians whose aggressive and hostile conduct hitherto has rendered them peculiarly obnoxious and disagreeable ? This is the charge made by tho people of Mississippi against the Radicals, or 'bitter enders.' as they are called. This charge is not made because they fought against the South and secession ; for many of that class fought on the side of the South. It is not made because they are of iNortliern birth and education, and of the Northern army, are with us in an tagonism to this obnoxious party. le-' " It is not becausa they were Republicans, for their antagonists were the first in the South to organize on the Republican platform and to advocate the civil ahd polical equality of ail men. They were sent as delegates to Chicago for their consistency and constancy ; were rewarded by you with offices of trust and honor. But this charge is made, as I have said before, because the proscrintive antecedents and az- grcssive policy of these politicians towards the people of Mississippi have made them the objects ol peculiar ab horance. " That policy consists not only in the continual advocacy of proscription, but in preaching to the freedmen in a time ot profound peace such revolutionary doctrines as excite and direct the white men of the South and their families a most dangerous animosity; such ani- inos.ty, indeed, which, with contiuua tion of the Fame fuel, would inevitablv lead to a black mau'a party and a war ot races. " Neither are Mich doctrines preach ed with an honest desire to ameliorate the condition of the freedmen, or pro moto tho ends of peace or strengthen ... . . .i r- .i the Republican party in tne soutn, but solely to alienate from the planter, the lime-honored confidence and affection nf this race, in order thut the new political elements, under the banner of Republicanism, might Do entirely controlled and surbordinntcd to their own purposes of power and aggrandizement. And to tins class ol meu, wnom you foiled in their attempt to force upon the people of Mississippi the odious constitution rejected at the ballot-box, you now give the hand of friendship and support, and spurn from you that other class who, accepting the invitation of the Republican party in good faith, come iu mass in Virgiuiu and Tennessee, a they will come in Mississippi aud Texas to stand upon its platform and advocate its principles. "Lewis Dent." AFFAIRS IN THE SOUTH. RECEPTION AND SPEECH OF GOV. SENTEIl IN NASHVILLE. Nashville, Aug. 11. Gov. Senter arrived in this city ou Tuesday evening, aud met with a brilliant reception, lie was escorted from the railway depot to the City Hotel, where he delivered a speech iu response to the address of ex-Governor Neill Brown. Iu the course of his remarks Gov. Senter emphasized one point, and that was that in Teuncssee there must be uo proscription on account of rebellion, race or color; suffrage aud the fullest political and civil rights must be free to all. He continued by saying that the wounds of the past must heal up, aud that brotherly love and iratcrt nal feeling must now be cultivated all round in Tennessee, lie thought the circumstances were ripe for a new party, which would discard dead i-sues and act upon thelivitig present. Bour-boakm on the one baud and proscriptive radicalism on the other should be ignored aud set aside, aud a new departure taken, which would tcud to liberal and progressive ideas and measures. Theyouug meu of the State, he said carried the State election with such impetus that the old judges were almost unable to decide how far hcy had gone ahead. The wisdom of age should temper Young America, but it was striding aloug like au Arab cours ser. His remarks were received with shouts of applause and approval. -9i The Cuban (a?stion. The action of the Cabinet on Tuesday has been a matter of speculation almost altogether since that day. aud the public has been very anxious to know exactly what was done. While ever one else has been seeking the news the Washington correspondent ol the New York Klonnnn-cial Advertiser telegraphs as follows to his paper : The friends of Cuba aie elated at the result of the Cabinet meeting Friday, and at the news from Spain. General Sickle? has been undoubtedly authorized to offer the present rulers of Spain a largo sum for tho acquisition of Cuba. The negotiation is a very delicate one, bur, great confidence is felt in General Sickles' tact. It is confidently believed that the necessities of the Spanish Government and the persoual ambition of Prim and Serrano will ultimately compel theci to accede to the proposal Unns. It is b.lieved that the chief obstacle to the sale of Cuba arises from its unpopularity with the masses. But panish statesmen freely admit that the loss of Cuba is ouly a questiou of time, and they doubt the exped of wasting money aud life in a futile cllort to stave off the inevitable result. This feeling, added to the munificent offers of the I'uited States Government, may operate to prevent any very earnest efforts to suppress the rebellion. It is confidently stated that the Spanish Government will he unable to seud the reinforcements of men and munitions to Cuba that have I een demanded by Captain General Do Rhodes. Iu that case tue C ubans will be ena bled to obtain substantial success that warrant our Government in cxteuding belligerent rights to the patriots. J he I res. deut and a majority of his Cabinet are iu favor of the adoption of energetic measures on behalf of the Cubans in the event of the rejection of Minister Sickles' offer for the pur. chase ol the island. Corn Crop in the W-st and .orlhwfst. The Cincinnati Price Current of the 1 1 tli instuit says : 14 Ihe weather has been quite cool during the week, the temperature at night beiug down to sixty at times. ltvs is too low for corn, which is a se rious matter, as every day of warm weather uow woaid be of creat value; but there has been no favorable weather for corn this mouth, so far; aud not only has it been too cold, but it is quite dry, and the corn is now suffering for want of rain. There can be little doubt now that corn will be a paitial lailuro in the northern part of this State, Indiana and Illinois. In Iowa the promise is more favorable, and our advices from Kansas report corn forward and in good condition. Iu Kentucky corn is good, and will be a large crop, there having been more land planted than was last year! It is somewhat singular that tho weather in England has been quite like that which we have had in this country. The spriug cool and wet, which continued up to the close of June, when the temperature rose suddenly, and during July it was very hot; unusually to." The Convening of the Virginia Legislature. THE ikon-clad oath to be applied. Richmond, August 14. It is stated on good authority that General Caus by will, within ten days, issue his election proclamation, convening the Legislature and applying the iron clad oath to the members, and, where a member elect cannot take the oath, giving his seat to the candidate who received the next highest vote. '1 his news produces different feelings among differeut parties. The Wells Republicans, who form nine-tenths of what was the liepubhcan party, rejoice ovci it. J he xiemocrats are confident that the effect is to give the State to the Democracy ia 1872 and nermnn. ently thereafter, and the Walker True Uepublicans, who elected their ticket on the idea amonor the whites that, tlmri- O ' .. . was to be no more disfranchiseocents and test oaths, are very sick. The Purchase of Cuba Important Hesitations with the Spanish Regent. . From the Philadelphia Ledger, 13.J It has now transpired that a private gentleman, an intimate friend of Captain General Prim, leNevy York for Madrid two days befortVieral Sickles and reached Madrid a week before the latter. On his arrival he laid the whole of General Sickles' instructions before the Captain General and Marshal Ser-rauo, to ascertain the feelings before a formal presentation by the Minister, and reported to the administration in this country that the propositions advanced had been very favorably received. The most important proposition contained in those instructions was one suggesting, in, a friendly manner, to Spain that they agree to the appointment of a mixed commission, composed of Spauiards and Cubans, or a Spaniard and a Cuban, who shall meet in the City of Washington, and fix upon a price at which the island shall be sold to the Cubans. It is said, also, that the name of President Grant is mentioned to be appointed president of the commission, but I cannot vouch for the correctness of that. The island of Cuba by an agreement of this kind, would be paid for from its owu revenue, and the statement that the United States offers iu any way to guarantee the bonds, there is the best authority for stating is unqualifiedly false. The Cubans clafm that the custom collections will pay any reasonable sum in a very short time, and they ask no foreign aid to make the payment. Marshal Serrano, Regent of hpain, and Captaiu General Prim, are now considering the matter. In the Cabinet at the White House yesterday the subject was broached and discussed, but no definite result was reached. We shall hear from Madrid in a few days. Meantime those who seem to know most and who ought, eutertain no fear that the propositions will be agreed to by Spain. If they are not, then all agree that the next action of our administration will be to show a considerably res laxed disposition towards Cuba, which will amount to a virtual recognition of her independence. A representative of the Cuban Juuta, now here, is in unusually good spirits, and professes to know that the independence of Cuba will be au accomplished fact before the end of the year. Persona! Difficulty .1 Full Rrlrartloa Hade by lion (J) i. C. Abbott, Radical. Wilmington, August 17. For a week past a personal difficulty has been pending between Major J. A. Engle- haru, editor ot the Journal, and Gen. J. C. Abbott. U. S. Senator, which grew out of an editorial article which appeared in the I'ugt of the 8th inst., iu which the editor of the Journal was denounced a public liar on account of alleged injustice done Abb6tt in the reports made of his speeches. No collision or correspondence having occurred in meantime, ou Tuesday eveuing Abbott addressed a note to Engelhard, in which he Btated that he (Abbott), and not the editor of the Pott, was the author of the offensive article, and that he was personally responsible for the same. Ou Wednesday and Thursday there were unmistakeable evidences that Mr. Englehard would attack Gen. Abbott on sight, but the vigilance of the authorities prevented it On Thursday Gen. Abbott was arrested and placed under bond to keep the peace. Mr. Englehard successfully avoided arrest until Saturday morning about 1 o'clock, when he was surprised at a private residence by the Sheriff and a posse of men and placed under bonds. u Sunday morning Englehard with three friends proceeded to South Carolina, from whence he addressed a com1 ii'iici'-ition to Genera! Abbott, of which the following is an extract: " You must now make a full refraction of the contents of that article and an apology for publishing it, or give me the satisfaction to which 1 am entitled in accordance with the code of honor." On Monday General Abbott, through his friends replied in a communication of which the following is an extract: " By authority of General Abbott and being fully empowered by him in his name, we retract iu full the article in the J'ost of Sth inst., reflecting on Ma jor Englehard and express our regret that it was written aud published." The amende was accepted by the friends acting for Englehard in a writ ten communication, in which it was stated that in nothing that has appeared in the Journal was any assault on the private character of Gen. Abbott intended, and exoressin'r reeret that it. had been so construed. A Young Man Takes a two Years' Nap, Awakens and Asks. " Is Breakfast Ready ?" We are informed that a 'oung man living in the lower part of this county was taken sick about two years ago, and fell into a deep sleep, irom which he onlv awoke about two weeks since. The first expression he made use of on coming too was, " is breaklast ready V just as though he had been asleep but one night. A physician had been attend', ing on him all the time, and happened in just after he awoke. On walking up to the bed, he called the patient by name, remarking that " You must feel better, as your cheek? have more color," to which he replied by asking, " Who are you ?" On being informed that he was a physician who had been attending him constantly for two years, he could hardly believe his senses. During his sleep he was fel regularly with spoon victuals, as though he was con scious. He is now up, enjoying good health, had busily engaged in trying to get the events of the last two years posted up in his mind, that he may unite them with the past and present. He has a distinct recollection of everything up to the time of his going to sleep. We have heard no explanation of this ease of Rio Van Winkleism. Madison (Ind.) Courier, 28th. A Xew York journal has the following : " No other single fact demonstrates so palpably the very rapid growth of cur city as the one stated in connection with the ceremony of breaking ground for the new postcfSce. The first shovs elfull of earth was cast by the man who formerly carried our whole southern mail in a wheelbarrow, and took it over the river in a row6oat. During one man's life that wheelbarrow load has grown so that half a dozen locomotives are necessary to remove it." Interesting from Cuba. . Washington, D. C, Aug.. 14th. Th Cuhans here have advices to the 5th inst, containing Jordan's report of the engagemenc near noiquiu. vai-maseda, being reinforced, determined to surprise the Cubans, Jordan, lully advised, prepared to meet Valmaseda, and advanced a small force to lead the latter into an ambuscade. The stratagem succeeded. Valmaseda's forces were thrown into confusion. Jordan charged, forcing Valmaseda to retreat disorderly. His impression is that the negoos broke on the first attack. This fight destroyed Valmaseda's army, giving the Cuban's controLof the entire Holquin district. The Spanish loss was 170 killed and wounded, : and 700 captured and deserted. Later. iy further Cuban , advices it is reported that the slaves throughout the island are exhibiting symptoms of insubordination and sympathy with Cespedas. They are joining Cespedas in large numbers, thereby securing the emancipation proclaimed by the Pro visional Governor. They make, it is said, good soldiers'. Quesada is nearly ready to attack Neuvitas, with a certainty of success unless the Spaniards are reinforced. It is believed they will avoid the contest. Vessels sufficient to remove the car- frison are concentrating befoie Neuvi tas. There will be some important changes mgde by the census of 1870. In lSlOthe West was represented in Congress by thirty members. Iu 1870 it will have eighty. two. Eastward, a different result will be produced. Thirs ty-eight members spoke and voted for the Eastern States in 1810. That representation will be reduced to twenty-two in 1870. In 1810, the Atlantic Eastern States, as divided from the Southern, had one hundred and nineteen Congressmen ; after 1870 they will have but eighty-six. More than one third of the next House of Representatives, elected after the census of 1870, will be from the West, and, united to the Southwest, will give tbem a clear majority in that body, as well as ef Presidential electors. There is another view to be taken of this matter. When the next census is taken, and apportionment made for the first time, the South will have a full representation upon the negroes, instead of three-fifths of them, as before. She will gain fully thirteen members by this a very sensible increase to her political strength. -N. Y. World. More Murder in Jones County ! We learn that Gov. Ilolden has received a dispatch, informing him that a baud of five armed men went to the mill of Col. M. L. Shepard, near Trenton, Jones county, on Monday last, the lGth, and fired upon Col. Shepard, killing him instantly. Two or three other persons with Col. S. were wounded. Col. Shepard was the colonel of the militia of the county, aud had just been elected a Justice of the Peace. He was a good citizen, a friend to the law and order, and as such was feared by the desperadoes who have done so much during the last year or two to briug disgrace on the counties of Jones and Lenoir. It has not been long since j She iff ColgVove was ninrdcrcl near j Trenton by these desperadoes, who belong to a secret, murderous, military association; and now we have the additional horror of the murder of Col. Shepard, in the open day, while engaged iu his bubioess at his mill, within Bighl of the village of Trenton. It will bo. seen that Gov. Ilolden has offered a reward of 8500 each for the apprehension of these murderers. We trust that every peace officer and every good citizen will aid in bringing these assassins to trial and punishment. Hal. Standard, m While India and other countries are using every endeavour to promote the growth of cotton, it may not be uninteresting to compare the advantages enjoyed by the United States over its competitors. The Southern States, it is asserted, have an unrivalled soil and climate for the production of cotton, while the modes of transportation to market, both by river aud rail, are cheap and rapid. By an estimate made in 1852, the cotton crop amounted to 2,450,000 pounds, and the number of hands employed was 787,000, and the number of acres cultivated was 6.300, 000. The number of acres adapted to cotton cultivation, but not employed in that branch of agriculture, was 39,-200,000, and the additional hands required were 4,900,000. Hence, merely by comparing the acres, it appears that the cotton crop of the United States may be increased to 50,000,000 pounds. How Beau Hickman Saved his Wardrobe. In connection with the recent destruction by fire of Canterbury Hall, in Washington, the correspondent of a New Orleans paper mentions the circumstance that the famous Beau Hickman oosupied a room in a build'mg adjoining the Canterbury, and thatthe firemen, by superhuman efforts, managed to save Hickman's wardrobe. It seems that at the time of the fire Beau had not. laid off his clothes; that the firemen brought him fully dressed I out of tho window, and bo saved the entire wardrobe ot JJeau Hickman. The Census of Rome for 18G9, just published by the ecclesiastical authori ties, furnishes the following statistics The regular clergy is composed of 2,-265 persons thus divided : Cardinals 32, bishops 26, priests and clerks 1 366, and students at the ecclesiastical colleges S41.
