The Albermarle AVMr is becoming
alarmed at the ghost raised at its own
bidding. Some time ago it advanced
the aristocratic theory that money
should control thetltstiuics of this
State rather than brains, and wanted to
insert a provision in the Constitution
that they desire to adopt in September
to the effect that every legal voter be
allowed one rote, and for every three
hundred dollars, that a man might
own or claim he should be entitled to
one additional vote. v

Of course, if Boston Gushers and
their southern Democratic friends have
full control of the matter, these ques

But ieasmuch as the blacks fought side
oy aide with the whites in the war
against Great Britain, and as they
earned their title to citizenship by
ngnungtne same way for the preserva
tion of the Union in tbe late civil war.
there seems to be m sufficient reason
why they should, not be recognized at
the UentejiniaL celebration of the na

ocracy may be counted out when the
liuaa leads them so far in the direction
of reconciliation as to accept among
the results of tbe war a submission to
the fact of colored citizenship. Thev

The rules of the filiate reijuire that

hopes and expects to improve his con
dition, and one day to become rich.
Hence it is in Western North Carolina
we are more interested in the preserva
tion of slave projierty ; because, al
though we may, have fewer slaves, we
have more tlare otrner ; and, of course
a greater number f persons to Watch J
over any aggressions upon 11. me
same is true of land. We have more
land owners, and owners of every other
species of property ; and fewer of that
class of KTsoiis who hate nothing to
enjoy, and nothing to protect or defend,
bnt their rights of person. .
To connect together tin? ieoplc of
the ttate in one common bond of in
terest, it is only necessary that they
should iiosscss the same kind j of prop
crtr, and that taxes should ibc direct
and uniform. Indirect taxe4 are sel
dom representatives of the wealth of
the community where they arc collect
ed. The ahxount of public revenue col
lected in the city ol .cr TorK is no
sure test off the wealth of that city
And many! of : our taxes arc indirect
and furnUh no index -of the wealth of
the country in which Ibcy are paid.
It is Mile, the, to say you must give
mere political weight to the rich than
the poor the owner of thon.inds than
the owner of hundred. A thousand
owner of any particular species of prop
erty will afford it much more rfTevtual
protection than ome owner of the same

government that ifouU bf tolerated for

Many other complaints exist against
the present Constitution. Many other
improvements could be poiuted out,
more consistent with the progress of
tho age. The science of government is
progressive as every other science.
The ieople improve; their means of
knowledge increase ; their circumstan
ces change; their relations towards
one another, and towards citizens of
their sister States alter. Our sister
States everywhere around us are taking
advantage of this age of improvement
to improve their forms of government,
adopted when the rights of her people
were comparatively little known. Ia
our Constitution alone $0 receive no
improvement from tbe spirit that i
