The Democratic party . is passing through the throes of dissolution. From jthe time when it assnaied.the ' championship of slavery to the present hour it has bit-tied for ideas and for measures which are held in detestation by the enlighten-ed sentiment of the age. For more tjian twenty years not one of its professions 'has struck a responsive chord in the gencr ous heart of the people. - During jthe latter years of its ascendency it lijved upon threats and gasconade !nd bullying. Peacable citizens often endure much in the way of wrong ami insult before accepting a conflict with .a deeperadoj It was this aversion to joining in deadly combat which permitted the success of Buchanan in 1856 the last success of the Democratic party. But it had then plunged into a career of madness -from' which retreat was impossible. It isul tried in vain to force Slavery upon the territories of the North West. It had sent blood hounds from the swamps of Texas land Louisiana to hunt down panting fugitives from bondage in the homes of Ohio and Massachusetts. Lovers of justice listened with horror to the wftils from Kansas and to the plead rigs of the helpless creatures ,who vet remanded, to the mercies of their masters under the provisions of the fugitive slave law. ; -1 Mistaking the patience of the North for cowardice, and emboldened -byj the apparent success of gasconade, the Democratic leaders in 1860 became still more imperious ' iu their exactions. But the moral sentiment of the country had become, thoroughly aroused. The edict had gone forth "hitherto mayst jhou come but no further." At the fall elections they were signally bcate-n by a party which eight years before existed but in the germ. During this brief period the insolence o.f the Democracy coupled with its crimes against the moat sacred of human rights, had stimulated the growth of the moral energies of j the, people til a mere handful of "Free Boilers' had expanded into a victorious host. We were a "Free soiler" at the begin-ning, and we have to this day jemained true to the principles that have develop ed into the grand Republican Party of the nation. But to resume : Beaten at the bolls the champions of slavery rushed to lirms for-the puVpose of destroying the Gov-ernnient they could no longer control. Rule or ruin was their desperate resolve. To their account are charged the blood and treasure sacrificed in the ensuing conflict ! I One would think that a party organi zation and name so over-loaded with crime and cursed with fateful memories. would ask no other boon from an ou t rapjed public than permission to disband and disappear. The wounds of baffled tyranny and treason is but a poor ''com mendation to the sympathies of the world. However, the issue has proved that where there is no repentance there is no shame lnc people nave snown their opinion of the Democratic party by visiting upon it for twelve years a series of continuous defeats. Through Republican divisions it has indeed gained a few local and tem porary advantages, but if the signs of timc3 are to be trusted its power has de parted forevet. .

IS IT Mi CERITY OR INSTABILITY t In his letter accepting the Cincinnati' nomination for President Horace Greeley says : : . ' j "Our policy should aim ! at local self-government aud not at centraliziition ; that the civil authority snould be su preme over the military ; that the writ of habeas corpus should be leaiously up held." ( : j All this is very true, and yet it is astonishing lo find such words in Mr! Greeley's m jutli under the circumstani ces. For! who does not know that if they mean anything, as a part of any opposition platform, they mean condemna tion of recent measures of the Repub- ican party tho Ku Klux law and its enforcement, the Federal Election law, etc., every one of which the Tribune ad- ocated, supported and defended: No where have the charges against them of unconstitutionality and usurpation been more positively denied and scbutedj than by this same Horace GreeLey. Both he and his paper were strenuous and con sistent in upholding the Ku Klux law and approving its' enforcement. J Nor were they less emphatic j as to the pro priety of the Federal election law. If these things were not "centralization, then there has been no shade) or color of centralization in our Government. It is SENA TOR SUMNER'S A TTACK ON . : PRESIDENT GRANT. The sensation of j the past week has been the fierce attack of Charles Sumner on President Grant. It is well known to the country that the arrogant Senator has been angry with the Presi dent for more than two jiears. The trou ble began about the Greek mission. Mr. Sumner demanded the control of the appointment as his right by virtue of his chairmanship of the Committee on For eign Relations. , He wanted a personal friend of his appointed. Then came the removal of Mr. MojTLEY from the mis sion to England. Mr. Sumner threatened that if he was' removed it would end all friendly relations between him and the AdministratioriT For good and sufficient reasons the removal was made, and from that day to this the Massachu setts Senator has omitted no occasion to open the floodgates of his wrath against the President. The country understands all this and knows that it is only a personal quarrel nothing more. Hoping to have revenge, he carefully prepared a speech full of acrid bitterness and delivered it in the Senate just a few days before the Philadelphia Cor vention. The jostcnsible object of the fierce attack was to prevent Grant's renomination. Vain and hnpotent effort! He might as well have opposed hi3 single breath to the North' wind. The people have carefully watched the Administration from the beginning and they have decided that Grant can govern the conntry and they in Convention assembled at Phila delphia resolved that he shall do so for another four years.! i The speech of Mr. Sumner is very bitter. He , has concentrated in it all the gall and wormwood of many months distilation. But when we come to ana lyze it, we find it 'little but flaming rhet oric. All his objections, all his grounds of assault, all his criticisms upon the Ad ministration amount to rancorous words,. inflamed invective, rhectorial fancies 1 . . ' and indignant imagination. For facts, fot figures, for solid ground we search in vain. No where does it refer to a prin ciple. No where does it touch the great work of the Administration. He ignores every question of statesmanship and de scends to petty personal matters. In raking' the gutters he has overshot the mark. The people too well know, that in every department of public affairs President Grant's. Administration has been eminently successful, and that it has given the country great prosperity and tranquility. They know all this too well to be drawn from his support by speeches so distinguished for beinsr the mero vent of personal spleen. Alas for Charles Sumner ! This cn venbmed personal lattack is entirely un worthy of his famei He has done much for the country, but others haive done at least as much. He is entitled to consideration, but others are entitled to quite X ' TTfl . '. 1 as niucn as lie. Who is it that he now assails ? The answer comes from the loyal millions all oiver the land: the man who led tho armies oi tho nation trium phantly to victor7 1 the man who saved it from the deadly assaults of armed treasou ; the man who took coinmand in the hour of gloom aud disasterand con ducted us to glorious success ; who, as the saviour of the country, was called like Washington, its father, by the spontaneous voice of the people to the Presidential chair ; the man whose j I GN.

HENRY WARD I BEECHBR ON CHARLES SUMNER j In the last number of the f Christian Union, edited by IIenhy Wai) Beech- jiE, the recent attack of Mr. Sumner on the President is severely reprollatcd. Mr. Beeciiek very correctly say thatj no man who hates is fit to judge another. And as Sumner has raised a njouumcnt of his hatred to Grant, he commends to his notice a passage in a book Iwhich he fears the Senator docs not real as often as he should, to wit : I I "He that saith he is in the ght, and hateth his brother is in darkness even until now. He that loveth hi$ brother abideth in the light, and there lis rid oc casion of stumbling in him. Bifthe that hateth his brother is in darkifess and walketh in darkness, and kno'eth j not whither he goeth, because that blinded his eye." larkness COMPANIONS FOR GREELEY. - f S i The - Woman s Equal Rights party, with Mrs. WooniTiTi.i. fnr President! and r i . .

From the day of ;'76 it has beeu christened the city of Indepeudance, but las t week it again became the- Mecca of Liberty. From every portion of this great' nation pil grims came to take "part Yn and witness the new light ings of the fires of. Frc'er dom which proved to bo tie grandest political pageant of this decade. In the character of the participants, ip the grandeur of the idea which they 'embodied, in the incidents by whiich thej occasion was attended, ; it was (unsurpassed among political events, anl ij striking contrast to the feeble show of mongrels who assembled in .Cincinnati to harter principles and honer for a more chance of office and plunder. -f" .. p" : v The Raleigh News is an excellent .Dem ocratic paper one of the"i)est thatreach-ea. our office, but like too Imany of the gentry who are running organs of that prrty it is too apt to "go off half cocked." If the News man will take a' glass of ice water and then re-read the article he cbm-plains of in our paper he will see that his quarter column editorial in reference to it is as uncalled for as it is in; bad taste. " .We . denounced the rumors, not the editor. Would it not be well for the latter to put in practice a little of the "editorial courtesy and . propriety" ho so flippantly discourses about ? . OUR NATIONAL STANDARD BEARERS. The representatives of the great Re publican Party o this nation, in Con vention assembled last week in Philadelphia, nobly performed their duty in se-; lectiug for standard bearers men in whom the peoplej have implicit confidence, and , in presenting a platform worthy the time and tho .age. The coun-! try, having had "one term of Grant," was so well satisfied that it demanded his renomination; That demand was responded to by thej delegates from every State of the Union! unanimously voting for him. The nonrination for Vice President is equally satisfactory. The life long efforts and the eminent public services of Henry Wilson of Massachusetts in the cause of Freedom and Prog; ressi make him a fitting successor to that faithful and popular man of the West Schuyler Colfax. The latter was the first to' congratulate his euccesful rival on his nomination, meeting him in the Senate Chamber and cordially shak ing him by the hand. He at once sent the following telegram to the Convention: I I support your ticket cheerfullv. Men are nothing, principles everything. Noth ing must arrest Republican triumph, un til equality under the law, like liberty froni which it springs, is universally acknowledged,! and the citizenship of the humblest becomes a -sure protection against outrage and ! wrong, a3 was Ro man .citizenship of old.

Our own citizens are hospitable and kind, and are gradually getting infused into them a spirit ot enterprise and go-ahead-iteveness. Again the creature comforts are cheap and abundant fish !of all kinds, wild ducks and geese, oysters clams etc; ! We are just in the midst of the staw- berry season. Large quantities have been raised and shipped to Northern markets- Our largest growers arc Dr. H. G. Land, Mr. James" Williams and Mr. D. C. Lindsay. ! I The Peach crop is more than promis- mg. coi. btocKton oi l enn., is the largest grower, and is said to have 'shipped last year n),UUU worth ot reaches, lie will ship this Season as much if not more. In addition to his Peach orchard, the Col. has a fine orchard of Pears, and a large grape-vineyard comprising about six hundred vines. He is also growing goose berries, and will ship largely of early Irish potatoes and later in the season, egg-plants. ! Mr. T. T. Whitcomb of New York lately a citizen of your place, purchased a farm in this section last Fall, and out of Chaos has made for himself a perfect little Paradise. ' He intends eventually to go into fruit culture, but this year ha devoted his attention to! trucking. He has shipped largely of parly Peas, and and will also ship largely of Irish Potatoes, Cabbages, Beans, .Tomatoes and Egg-plant. !. In , addition to this Mr. Whitcomb has fourteen .thousand hills of Water Melons growing finely. Mr. W. G. Young of Penn. purchased a farm last Winter,; and has planted out eleven hundred Pear trees, the most approved varieties and twotthousand grape vines. Dr. tl. u. Liana is also a large grapC-grower. ' i! ' ! Mr. D. C. Jjindsey citizens ha9 a large Peach orchard, com prising 6000 trees. ; This is the first sea son that his trees halve bqirne, and he will probably realize handsomely from them. We are already shipping insii potatoes and those who have planted largely will of course make fine profits. Crops ot all kinds are! looking hne. This country is well adapted to truck ing and fruit-growing tho soil sandy with clay subsoil, and Nature and Art have given us fine means of transportation. On one side of us s North' River very many Steamers navigate this to and from Norfolk , throughf the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal. Those who live on the river side ship that way.
