The question of ncro suffrage cr.n no lonrcr be rearcJetl as cs- .tcntrally a Southern question; if it ha not actually ceased to interest alf of the Southern States, it docs not virtually concern them all. To be convinced of this, it is only necessary to examine the following tabic, showing the relative white and black populations compiled from the census of iSSo. and the majorities in lS;o in J iSSo: t itUst, t i I T Mil MII.WI "vi : " Kr.t4 sr. 1. .. -MI --a. ft. 4 1 J li-t V " -t.

Thus there have been since l$JO three Southern States holdi.i;; black majorities. South Carolina, Mississippi and Louisiana. The white majorities all increased from the decade of I Sro-1 S-SO, and the negro majorities increased during the same period. . It will be farther seen from the table that there is a jroup of six States that have sufficiently lare majorities of white v'.cr to render the colore 1 vote of little or no importance, viz.: Arkansas, Kentucky.! North Carolina. Tennessee. Texas and West Virginia, and to these Florida may be added. Negro suffrage is practically but little more of a problem in these States than it is in Ohio or Indiana. There is still another group of three, Alabama, Georgia and Virginia, with large vhitc majorities that arc growing larger. These will soon cease to fee the disturbing influences of the negro vote. Thus the circle is rapidly growing smaller. It is probable that under the influence of white immigration Louisiana may now have, or will soon hive, a white majority. Mississippi and South Carolina will, be left as the only States holding ncirro majorities. o that what was once a question as broad as the South has narrowed itself down to the compass of two States. The indications arc that as the the Southern States with white majorities secede from the direct excitation that originally belonged to negro suffrage, which in reality alone constitutes the sectional is sue, their political affiliations will be indicated bv public questions of essentially different characters. Their material interests will not point them to the suffrage as a concern of dominating importance. Ordinary questions of national K!itics will influence their sym-uthics as vvcll as their actions. The South will not indefinitely remain soitd. uisinicgiatioa is inevitable. A mere sentiment or memory will not prove a cohesive orcc strong enough to perpetuate unity of jxihtical policies in a nation where Htlitics is governed by material interests. 1 hesc things are as sure to happen as anything that can be predicted of the" future.

The following is the official record of the election of George Washington as the first President of the United States: Monday. April 6. 17S9. The President of the Senate, elected for the purpose of counting the votes, declared to the Senate that the Senate and House of Representatives had met. and that he. in their presence, had opened and counted the votes of the Electors for President and Vice-Prcsidenti of the United States; whereby it appears that George Washington was unanimously clcctcdTrcsiJcnt. Whereupon the following certificate and letter, prepared by a committee, consisting of "Messrs. Paterson, Johnson, Lee and Kllsworth. w ere adopted by the Senate and signed by their President: P.c it known. That the Senate and Mouse of Representatives of the United States of America, be- ing conveneu in inc ui) uimotan. of New York, the sixth day April, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred anu c: 'htv-nir.c, the underwritten, ap ttointed President of the Senate for the sole purpose of receiving oncning and counting the votes o the Klectors, did, in the presence of the said Senate and House o Representatives, open all the cer tificates and count all the votes o the Electors for a President and for a Vice-President; by which it appears that George ashmgton esi . was unanimously elected agreeably to the Constitution, to the office of President of the United States of America In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal. John Laxgdon. Ni:v York, April 6, 17S9. Sik: I have the honor to trans mit to vour Excellency the infor mation of vour unanimous election to the office of President of the United States of America. Suffer me. sir, to indulge the hope that so auspicious a mark of public confidence will meet your appro bat inn and be considered as a sure pledge of the affection and sup port you arc to expect from a free and enlightened people. I am, sir, w ith sentiments of re spect, your obedient, humble ser vant. John i..Ni;noN. To his Excellency Geo. Wash irfgton, esq. lnc all V Idmr. - ! l.i. htii-.r. I !;! U. h The P: fi correspondent at Charlotte. .V C. telegraphed the following last night: Your correspondent to-day ob tainevl from reliable source infor mation to the effect that Mrs. Stonewall Jackson has never been offered the Charlotte or the Rich mond post-office Mrs. Jackson still declines ,to s.ry anything only that she "know s nothing to say," and pre fers to avoid anything for publication. She ?is very much mortified at the criticism of the Danville Tinws of last week, in which Editor Ilouldin said he hoped she was too good a Democrat to accept any position from the Administration. Excepting the Danville Times' article Mrs. Jackson is gratified at the kind.y criticisms of the press throughout the country. I am told that the whole affair has greatlv embarrassed modifictl condition of suffrage, but tjaclisoi,, and she would hav e Mrs. have been glad to have avoided it all. It is not probab.e that she would accept any post-office that might b offered her. and it is certain Pre s 1 tit I 1 a that time ami opportunity oasscd bevond recall. The practical lesson from" these iews is that the pjonle of Mis sissippi must rely upon themselves that neither Charlotte nor Rich er a permanent adjustment o! mond has been tendered her ineir auairs. .mi external ar.i is coming. It was never cx;ected from one national party, and was never intended to be extended in any measure by the other in Mississippi. 1 he situation is unquestionably strained, with all the indications pointing to an increased tension. rtrtit "Mh ( alullna. ; i. .. it..-. 1 jt Si.

Now few portions of the country are better known to prospectors, land-buyers, lumber-getters, and capitalists interested in projecting railroads, and Tin: kiniMOM of kick. It is true tfcat neither the Richmond nor the Charlotte office was tendered to Mrs. Jackson, as the Lexington office was; but it is asserted most positively- that Col Parsons inquired if Mrs. Jackson (alter she had declined the Lexington f ost-office) could be in tinted to accept the Richmond or the Charlotte office. How far this correspondence proceeded is not certain. I rob ably it was stopped before Mrs. Jackson made up her mind by "the insuperable obsta cle Coh Parsons alluded to.

I Concord TimeB.l i; Mr. Gus Sclzer, aged about 35 years, who lived near China Grove, died last Friday of consumption, and was buried Saturday. He was a pronounced infidel, believing in -neither a God nor a future of any kind. Two weeks before death, he, knowing death to be imminent, went; out. to' a poplar tree near the yard and 'under its shade marked off the place for his grave, giving instructions as to how it was to be dug, the mode of burial,fetc. He said he wanted a layer of cedar brush at the bottom of the grave, his body placed on top of this, wrapped simply in a blanket, then another layer, then a layer of boards, and then filled up with dirt. He said that when: decompositionj set in and when the sap of the jtree drew him upj to thc limbs, he could, perch on. top the tree and view the surrounding scenery for the ages to come. Mr. Setzer was perfectly rational to the last of his exis4 tence". He was visited during his wasting illness by several minis ters. who endeavored to point hirrPto the way of eternal life, but in vain. ' The peculiar instructions of Mr Setzer were fully carried out, and he was buried on Saturday exact ly as he had directed. Hanged, but Xot If ad. A special f r o m Smithville, Tcnn., says: Last Saturday morn ing a negro man stopped at a well known negro farmer's house and stayed several hours, and he returned Sunday and stopped all night. Monday morning the farm er saw his truest arranging his 'kerchief around his neck, and saw that it was badly skinned and swollen. The ; negro on being closely questioned, confessed that he was Mack rrancis, who nad been hanged Friday at Lebanon, and that he had been resuscitated by his relatives. It will Jje remem bercd that Francis's neck was not broken, and that the rope slipped, and he was not strangled. Mis heart continued to beat for twenty minutes, when thc physician pro nounced him dead. The description 'tallies with Francis, and the people in that neighborhood be lieve the. negro is alive. Other parties " between Lebanon and Smithville have claimed to have seen Francis since the hanging. I- Iiiterestiiijr Items. - due Hundred Years Ago.

No man was better known than Washington, or more certain to pursue a conservative course when such course was an mperative necessity.
