There have bee a" so many reportsof
the way the Republican Delegates to
the -Chicago Convention from North
Carolina stand, , that our reporter yes
terday called on Mr. W. P. Canaday
for the purpose of interviewing him.
Mr. Canaday was the Republican can

Kepoiter We desire to learn your
yiews as to the piObable standing :n

delegates at Chicago which arc already
elected. ; . i
Canaday Sixteen delegates ; four at

Second, Fourth, 1 Fifth, Sixth, au
Eighth Districts, have been chosen, of
.which thirteen of the sixteen are for
Sherman and three for Grant. 7
Reporter Hqw will the delegation
stand when completed ?
Canaday In my opiuiou at least
sixteen of thlTtwenty will vole for the
nomination of Hon. John Sherman on
the first ballot, and eighteen of the
twenty on the second.
Reporter -How is it that reports
have been circulated that a majority of
the delegates already elected are for
Grant? L J'"' -
Canaday That seems easy of solu
tion. Grant's friends desire to give him
a lift in other states, rand they labor to
make it appear that be will be nomi
natjd on the first ballot, for the purpose
ot mnuencmg those who are swinging
on the gate and desire to bo on the
.strongest side it they can had it. The
Committee of the Sixth District met
lastThiursdav. Mr. Sherman's friends
were the maiotitv of that committee
and elected delegates, yet itlvas imme
diately telegraphed that the delegates
had beea instructed fco vote, for Grant.
A similar misstatement occurred ia,thc
Second District ; one of the elected del
egates was declared by the Grant bureau'
to be for the ex President; while . the
delegate publishes over his signature
that he is for Mr. Sherman." So it goes j
The friends of Mr. Sherman elect the
delegates, and Grant's friends telegraph
over, the country ' another success for

are for Gen. Grant? ;
Canaday By no means; on the con-
trary a very large majority -of the ) very
best pcoplo in the Republican party in
r the state are Ic-day for Sherman. The
colored people who-are claimed as a
unit for Grant are misrepresented: alf
of them who think and act for them
selves, and who read the newspaper can
I properly be claimed as a unit the other
way and for Sherman.
The colored people are not the fools
a vcrv considerable portion of the
white people take them to be. They
do not forget the wrong done to, and
the slights which were heaped upon
them by the Grant administration, and
,they have received dtfublethe Dumber

DKMOCHATIC COUNTY CO JiVEN
TIQJT. The conrention of the Democratic
party convened in this city on the 17th
instant, at 3 o'clock p. m., withjllr. C.
II. Robinson, carpel-bagger from Ver
mont, in the chair, and Mr. L. L.
B on rs sccrttary.
, After the usual routine ot 'business
Mr. F. II. Dirby, theJLiberal or Heme
Rule Member from the bloody Fifth,
ofiered the following resolution:
"Wc.the representatives of the Demo
cratic people of New Hanover county,
in convention assembled, do hereby tc1
solv : ' '"
. Th;it we view with profound alarm
the coipttint and progressive movements
which under llepublican administration
are being made to consolidate power in
ihe r fuVraLto the displacement of the
local sd,'-'jovernr)xcnt. and thereby to
destroy. the methods and form of con
stitutional government which the lore-
fathers not his forefathers, mind you,
Ed oi the Republic, a century ago,
so gloriously and successfully fought
to establish. "
Frank is evidently thinking of Ire
land, poor Ireland, and believes him
self in the British Parliament, beside
Parr.ell, making a speech and waiving
a 'Mum rock" in i he lace ot the tvrant
. m .
'3d. That ihe late decisions of the
Supreme Court of the United estates
recogfizmg the right of-Congress to
pass coercive measure to compel state
officers to perform official duties assert
a powt-r inconsistent with and destruc
tive ofthe independence tho state:
that jl e true principles of government
ate ex reused in thej dissenting opinion
of Justice Field, and the Democratic
party pledges itself to their support."
Frank here leaves the English Par
liament and becomes a pugilist, and
proposes to abolish the Supreme Court
oi" ihe United States, or if they are al
lowed to remain their decisions are no i
to be respected bylhe Democratic par-t
"tu.- mat it is the duty oi me good
people ot the United States to wipe out

the slam which t he fraudulent -action of
the Republican leaders in the last Prej
idential election has put upon the-pu
rity of the "ballot, by restoring to the
people the right to elect and inaugurate
their chessh oiiicers free of force and
iraud." ' . - , -':

its ceaseless energies."
Self-government is the doctrine of the"
Democratic party, is it? If so we would
like to inquire who it was that gerry
mandered this city, sothat a majority of
the reQple could not control it, which
put this city with it$ 1,200 Republican
majority in the hands of the Demo
cratic party, and after that was accom-
piished, had an act passed by the leg
isature to continue the. present city of-
ficiala in office, contrary to the wishes
of ninewtenths of the people.. Frank
Darby is the city attorney, and we
rather believe he wa3 ridiculing the
pretensions of the Democratic party
concerning their reported cries for self-
government. "Low taxes I the taxes
have been increased from year to year
ever since the Democratic party have

dently intended to strike at the present
Democratic mayor, who put the police
fonie, night'Soilers and other members
of the city officials, including the city
attorney, out canvassing for one of the
Democratic candidates for Congress.

of the following:
"Resolved, That all matters pertain-
inc: to nominations ior county omciais
-ST . f . a T ?
be referred to the Executive Committee
of this county, with full power to act,
This resolution was offered by Maj
Reilley, who has evidently forgotten
the tendency of many of the Democratic
leaders to Nonothingism, and it ia very
refreshing when considered that Frank
had just offered his resolution concern
ing self-government. It looks as though
Maj. Reilley did not want self-go vern-J
rent but wanted the committee
eontrol and hot .the people.
Mnj. J W. Dunham moved that the
following Drotest be entered on the
' o .. . . .
The undersigned, delegates , from the
Second Ward, of the city of Wilming
ton, desireJo put on record an exprea
sion of their opinion as to the call of
the Executive Committee of this county
for tuemeeting1 of this Convention, as
well as of the primary ward and town-
'shin meetings ordered by said Execu
tive Committee, ana 10 nave ine same
presented to the District Convention
for its consiaerauon auu acuon.
We earnestly protest against the ac-
tion of said' committee .because the
meetings referred to were offered to be
held hurriedly and before the District
Executive Committee was called to
gether to fix a time and place for hold
log the District Convention. Such a
proceeding wa3 never heard of before
in the history of the Democratii party,
so far as we know, arid we regard it as
tin-Democratic and unwarranted by
any parly necessity.
The District. Executive Committee
will not meet until Wednesday the 2 1st
inst and therefore the convention has
assembled to appoint delegates to a
convention not yet called, at a place
not yet agreed upon. It is, in our
judgment, discourteous to tho district
committee, aDd if allowed to pass un
noticed will -be a precedent dangerous
to the harmony, of the party, and there
fore we desire that the district conven
tion, when called, shall authoritatively
decide whether in future sueh prema
ture action by Ihe county executive
committees shall be -valid. '

The above was the bombshell which
created the greatest effect ot. the day.
The Stedman men looked wild with
alarm, even Frank was so agitated that
he called for ice water, lemonade or
anything that would quiet his nerves;
he had to"j be fanned by the brethren,
before he recovered sufficienfly to . op
pose the protest. It was then laid on or
under the table. s 1
Mr. J. I. Macks offered the follow
ing:", i ; ..
Eesolvedt That the course of Col. A.
M. Waddell, in declining the further
use of hi3 name in connection with the
Democratic nominstion for Congress,
thus harmonizing the Democracy of

the thanks of this' convention, and the
same are hereby tendered him.

The delegates to the state and con-
gressionai conventions afe made up
mostly of the kii gloved gentlemen.
None of the rank and file of the Dem
ocratic party are represented on the
delegation. ' The poor white men who
do the voting are not allowed to have
a chance to select their candidates, but
it has been ever so.
DR. J. J. MUTT .OJ? &TAT12SY1L,MS.
It has long hoen suggested by many
Republicans ia different parts of North
Carolina, that D.v'Molt should be put
on the state ticket for Secretary of
State. Every personjn the state who
knows Dr. Mott, respect him for his in
tegrity and high moral worth. In fact,
he would add thousands of votes to the
Republican party if h'e consents to al
low his name to be used for any place
on the ticket. Dr. Mott is brave and
true to a fault. No man in the state
can or will say ought against him, and
we believe he is one of the most popu
lar men in North Carolina.

of? And also is the charges that Dr.

remarks about the poor white men, &c,
that he is charged with?
A Black-Eye for GRANT.-The
Grant men claimed, previous to the At
lanta convention, that they would carry
Georgia by acclamation. But when the
convention conveined they found they
were in the minority, and when the re
sult "was declared they found that they
had only got 6 of the votes of the 22
delegates to Chicago. Mr. Sherman
has 8, and Blaine 8 of the delegates. A
black-eye for Mr. Grant.
Who was it that said Darby was not
a great man. Shoot him on the spot.

ExK FOR URAJTT. !
The New York Times and . other
Grant papers, have been claiming that
there was no opposition to Grant in he
great state of Virginia. But when it
met on Thursday; it was : found that
Sherman and Blaine combined; and
held the convention. J "
A resolution endorsing Grant and in
structing for him was laid over.. The
convention remained in session for two
days, but finely succeeded inmaking a
delegation that are largerly in favor of
Sherman. He will have amajority of
the Virginia delegation, with Vir
ginia and Georgia, both Against . him,
(Grant,) we may next expect to hear of
other southern states joining them, and
Sherman will have a majority of the
delegates from the south. So much for
Grant's popularity, and his Confederate
speeches he is now making. -
Who would haye thought it,, the
country on the brink of a.velcano for 12

daughter of the late Hanson Tasker of

morning of the 21st ipst., by the Rev.

his two accomplished daughters, left

; His visit we understand will exxend,

and Germany, as well as to the conti

of which he is the national representa

return for business reasons he - will
spend a short time in Switzerland, Bel

Mr. Heide is one of our prominent
citizens,a member of both of the Com
mercial Boards of this city, and in bus
iness pursuits enjoys the confidence
and esteem of the entire community.
He was born in Denmark in the year
1832, was eduicaled as a merchant, the
customs of the Kingdom requiring this
course for those there engaging in trade
and commerce and passed his final ex
amination before the Board- of Trade at
Elsenore in the year 1802. Two years
later he came to the United States and
first commenced business in Fayetfe
ville, in this state. V
On the breaking out of the rebellion
he served as private in the Fayetteville
Light Infantry, and at its cloze resund
ed business at Fayetteville, where h'e
remained until the year 1868, when lie
came to Wilmington. ;
It is unnecessary to follow -him here
where he is so well known as a succesf
ul merchant aud ship-broker, which
business from a moderate begining has
enlarged to an extent that embraces
interested correspondents in all .of the
arger ports of the Atlantic and Gulf
States, as well as abroad. v
