Th e Raleigh correspondent of the' N.
Y. Times has lone been distinguished
for political vagaries. The day, before
the meeting of the State Republican
Committee ie telegraphed to the Times
that Canaday and Mtt were "for Sher
mao.bui they have no following on the
committee, or among the masses." Hw
much reliance can be placed upon the
statement of this correspondent, may
be judged by the fact, that when the
committcje met the next day, they stood
six for Sherman and' four lor somebody
else. Wliat following Mr, Sherman
may have among j"the masses" will be
known be Iter after he gets 12 out of the
1G delegates to be 'appofnted, or else
the whole delegation. It is evident
that the statements of jthe correspond
dent do not give ! evidence of great in
getting! at exact facts,and
must be taken with
grains of teaU.
MEETJKa OP TUJi REPUBLICAN
STATU CONVENTION. !
This body met at Raleigh on the 29.h
for the pui-pose of making the prelimi
nary arrangements tor the coming cam
paigning for appointing the delegates
at large for the National Republican
Convention to be held at Chicago on
the 2nd day of June next. ,
ne first Jbusines3 transacted
was the resignation ot Col. Thos. B.
chairman and the election
UfC. W. G
randy of Elizabeth City in
Ex Gov. Holden also re.
member of the committee,
signed as a
L. W. Humphrey of Golds-
born was elected in his place.
, Couip'.iuientary resolutions were vo
ted to Cul.j Keogh and, thanks - to the
National Committee for selecting1, him
as its Secreiary. i '
J Th6 Committee then proceeded to
select delegates at large to the Rational
Convention! as' follows? TTon. W. P
Canaday of! this city, Hon. D. If. Star-
buck of Salem, .Hon. James H. Harris
of Raleigh, and Gen. Rufus Barringer
of Charlotte. The alternates selected
were: W. S. Pearson, Geo. W. StSn-
ton, L. C. Christmas, and A. M. Dibbee
) i j -,
The Committee voted to call a State
Republican Convention to be. held at
Raleigh on the 7th day of July next,
for' the nomination of Crovernor and
othjer state 6Ficers, and for two electors
at large. j . ,
In the meantime it is understood that
either the District Congressional Com-
mittees, or the District Conventions
will select tjie remaining 'delegates.' !r
The State Committee' before the re
formation cohsjsted of: Thos. B. Keogh,
Chaii--ai-; W- P. Canaday, J. J Mott,
D. 11., Starbuck, Pinkney Rollins, J.
II. Harass, D., A. Jenkins, O. Hubbs,
C. W. Grandy and W. W. Holden. ' .
The reason which influenced the
Committee to appoint the delegates at
large, and to put the State after the
National Convention, was that it is too
early now to call the latter meeting,
and that it can be done more intelli
gently af'er the- action of the National
Convention is made public.
