This indicates that the yankees have but little faith in Lincoln's efforts to crush the r(^b(‘llion. Tho democratic national conventuin which was to have met in Chicago oil the 4th of July, has been should be executed n.s a traitor as speedil}' as pos sible. Lot every true n'.an—every one who desires to promote peace hero at home and .secure the final success of the Confederate cause—be on the nlert nnd r^iort what he can ascertain about this secret organization which is said to exist in our midst. Wo hope tho Confederate and Journal will give the authority for- their statements, and muLo public the .”ames of all whom they may know to be con nected with the treasonable schf .me. I’rompt ex posures should be made so that tiio public can mark and ,^izc the traitors. Since writing the above, wc find an expose' in the Ral eigh Conser\’ative of tiie existence of the organization al- hidi'd to.

It was made by Col. Thos. I. Grier of Steel Creek, who sold forty bags on the day men tioned. Col. Grier has alwaj's acted commeiidably and patriotically by selling his surplus provi.-:ions as tho public wants required. In this way last 3'car , ho sold so much of his crop of corn that we are told he scarcely ba.s enough to feed his bands ftiid stock until tho next crop is gathered. He has shown a willingness to do nil he could towards relieving the wants of non-producers, and trust Providence fof another crop. Another fact that niuy be stated to the credit of Col. Grier is. that be has invested all the money l>e has made within tho last two years in Confedeiate Bonds. — ♦ -C- ^ — The ni'.w ai)Ii:u Genekals.—Some weeks ago a list of appoiiitineiits of Hrigadiers was pub- lislK'd, and among them some five or six from this State. It was generally Fuppo.=ed that these ap pointments were permanent, but wo learn that they were only temporary, except in one or two cases. The appoiiifmrnts of Grimes and Barringer to the commaiul of Brigades an; permanent, becauso thoy take-lhe places o£officers killed, but Cox, Toon and Lewi^ only command brigades until the return of wounded or captured oflicers. So. also, in the case of Ramseur's appointment as JIajor General—ho fills tlie position and draws the pay of a 3Iaj. Gen’l until M;ij. Gen. Edw’d Johnson, who was captured, returns to his command.

Tho day for tho protection of tho lands and negroes of the authors of the rebellion is past.” • We suppose every southern man who is not a fool fullj' comprehended what subjugation or submission meant before Andy Johnson made bis speech and proclaimed the purposes of his government, but it is well for our people to be reminded of these thingi lest they should Iqso sigUt, to some extent, of the immense importance of the ponding struggle.

TIio postponement of the Chicago Convention to tho 2l)tii August, is understood to be a triumph for the Vallandighatn and Wood faction, the object being to await the issue of the present campaign. If Grant and Sherman meet with decided success the Convention may promulgate a platform pledging tho party to a iinivor.sal amnesty of the rebels, and nominate a man identified with tho war. If Grant is not succcssful they may adopt straight-out peace resolutions, and unite on a candidate who has op posed war and whose first act of administration .shall be a proposal for an armistice with the view to a fi nal separation.
