the relief of his throat. He was screech

back what ho said last winter, and in
playing little poodle to tha big bull
dog of the Journal, in telling tha peo
ple that the only chance of salvation in
this world is in their Toting for Con
vention men. .
This carpet bagger, whose throat s
so sore, takes a most wonderful interest
in North Carolina politics, and it is
most remarkable how nearly parallel
his pathetic appeals are with the other
pathetic appeals of the Journal man,
and how soon the same' Democratic

how it carries on. The Petersburg In
ilex ami Appeal has been reading Mr.
Charles XordholPs views iu the New
York Jfcrald about North Carolina, and
had the temerity to say :
lie is nevertheless ol the opinion
that the call fur a Convention which the
Conservative Lccidaturc made, was a
political error, in which opinion we
cordially concur with this intelligent
and disinterested outside observer.
Whereupon the Journal wades iuto
the impudent F. F. V..' and rive him

say one word against the policy of the
destructives in calling the Convention !

Hear the Journal:
"But even admitting that the right
to criticise the policy North Carolinians
pursue in recard to XSorth Carolina
affairs, is one of the rights of the Vir
;inia press that North Carolina Legisl
atures aro bound to respect, we beg
leavo to sujrirest to our esteemed con
temporary that in this case, at least,
the right is one that it were better
should be reserved for airing at some
other time. With all due respect for
our esteemed Virgiuia contemporary's
superior judgment in North Carolina

to urge that it ought never to nave been

the Index and Apxal is not hostile to
the Convention movement. Its utter
ance is merely a mistake in judgment,
proceediug from a want of lamuiaritv
with the matter in hand that is if such
a thine be possible when it is oue of
the Virginia press that is discussing
North Carolina affairs.
When two-thirds of all the members
f each House of a Democratic North
Carolina Legislature call a Convention
to amend the .Kadical erth Carolina
Constitution, it doe seem to u., in all
seriousness, that it is going to the full
length of its tether for a irginia Dem
ocratic newspaper to volunteer its
opinion to the people of North Caroli
.a .ft .
as, on uieir very war u me pons, as it
were, that the action of their Lgisla
ture was altogether wrong.
When men volunteer criUcism in the
domestic affurs of their neiehbors. an
apt time at least ought to be chosen far

Now we want to know vsy a ir
ginian in lVterburg has not the same
right to exprers an honest opinion
about the policy of its party friends in
North Carolina that a carpet bagger

Extracts from the Western Address
On the 1st day of January, 1851, the
Western members of Uie General Assem
bly ef North Carolina, without dis
tinction of party, issued an address to
the people of the State, from which
we make the following extracts :
i V Your Bill of Rights says That all
political power ia vested in and derived
from the peojl only." Is power in the
Senate of North Carolina derived from
the "jteople only!" Let it not be said
that taxation and representation go
hand in hand. That principle has no
application here. It is true that our
ancestors fought the battles of the Revo
lution upon the principle that they
were not to be taxed by a body in
which they were not represented. But
who represented ? certainly the people
those who paid the taxes not tho
taxes themselves. Our ancestors never
have more start ownert : and, of course
greater number Of uvrsuus tur ea1
over any aggressions upon ,it..- The
same is .true of ! land. .V e have more
land owners, and owners of every other
species of property - and fewer of that
class of persons . who have nothing to
enjoy, and nothing to protect pr defend,
bnt 'their richts ofDexson.JLl
Tb. connect together; the? people ...of
uk paie vi vuc ycuimnvn (wuu v. .u
tercpt, it is" ynly necessary that .they
shoald possess the same kind of prop
erty, -and that taxes -should be direct
ami uniform:' 'Indirect tales are sel
donl reprceentatives of tho wealth of
tbe-coramunity where they are collect
ed. I The amount of public revenue eol-
lected in the erty ot New aork is no
stije test of the wealth of that: city.
And many of our taxes are--indirect,
an) furnish no indea-of the- wealth of
the; country' in which they are paid.
' 'II is idle, the1?, to say you must give
more political weight to the . rich than
the! poor the owner of thousands than
the owner of hundreds. A thousand
owners of anyparticular species ef prop
erty will afford it much t wore efiectual
protection thsn-cwic owner of the same
amount and specie,, under any form of
government that would be tolerated for
a moment ia a free' country.'" ' ,
Many of our citizens are greatly op
posed to the election of Judges by the
Legislature, as is required by the Con
stitution. It can,nol be disguised that
our own Legislature has, in many; in
stances, been tthe scene of intrigue en
tirely at war with our kleas of the pu
ntv of the bench: and in which it was
shown that neither character, nor qual
fications were made the test for fitness
for office, but simply party services.
Legislatures arc small bodies, usually
electeil upon political party grounds
and that, too, frequently at the saerihce
01 ,tnc Dest interests ot the people.
' tender tlie circumstances many be
lieve that the people .would, be the saf
est depositories ot this power, the op
portunity and facility for corruption
and intrigue wonhi not exist, and the
people, in acting, would not beinflu
eniced by the fear of denunciation or
f)unishment of party men. The system
las been tried in many (States of Uie
Union, and found to operate so well
that it is much to be doubted whether
ft will not, in time, bo adopted in all.
Others, too, think that they ought to
hold office for a limited period. There
is no 'other officer knowu to our laws,
but who is limited to a short period,
after which his power is laid down at
the foot of those from whom he received
it; and in determining whether they
will again place him in power, they
pass upon the manner in which bis
duties havo been discharged. Many
of these offices aro of the highest char
acter and importance, and equally re
quiring in the incumbent, purity and
integrity of character. No evils have
resulted from giving the election of
these officers to the people and certain
ly no corruption of the people, nor of
the officer has been the consequence.
And it certainly is not a question of
nnich difficulty whether we should be
cursed with a bad Judge during his life,
if, in despite of all precautions, one
should unfortunately be elected. In no
other instance is such a curse iuflicled.
Can any other be greater?
Whole. One SenatoriatWDistnct is
therefore necessarily almost wholly dis
franchised. The Impropriety of this
state of things will readily occur to all.

The Proposed Convention.
Ye hewers of wood, drawers of watei,
and delvers of the earth generally, says,
the Ashcville Pioneer, hear what Win.
J. Yates, editor of tho Charlotte Dem
ocrat, has to say about Convention and
the prospective pay for emancipated
negroes, and then bare your backs to the
lash : .
" If a Convention is called let it be
unrestricted let there be no pandering
or promise to Iladicalisui ur imported
Yankee ideas let the old time prac
tices be restored, including the whip'
ping-post and qualified sulfra'gc. lint
it is understood, we think, that the
Legislature cannot limit the action of a
Convention,and if the Convention meets
it can do as it pleases.
No member of a sovereign State Con
vention should regard the dictation of
a mere legislative body."
"The restrictions imposed in the bill
as it passed the Senate arc degrading
and disgraceful to the people- of the
State, especially iu its paudcring to the
prejudices of our fanatical enemies at
the North. NO NORT1ICAKOLIN
