' FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1879,
THE COSFESTIOS OF NOBTHER i SE ITtEas.
The proceedings of tlie very itnport-
city Wednesday, excluded from bur col
umns, yesterday,' any thing in the na
ture of comment except what was in
cidentally thrown into the report rteelf.
"Comment, however, to use the hack
neyed phrase, "is unnecessary," or al
most so, in the face of the proceedings
as published. The series of thirty-one
findings promulgated by the body
adopted deliberately, seriatim, and sub
sequently as a whole, carry their own
comment with them, and nothing which
could be added to them at this time
could add aught to their force. They
are full, complete, explicit and specific.
They form a pen-picture the truthfut
ness of which is attested by seventy
five intelligent gentlemen gathered
from five different States. These gen
tlemen have no personal or political
ends to subserve; they have no private
gain in view; they are as disinterested
as men can be, and they come together
and say that such and such are facts.
Who can gainsay anythingthat i3 said?
Who is there to charge these gentlemen
with bearing false witness? To what
could so reckless a person point as
furnishing a motive ?
The work of this convention is preg
nant with results. Its utterances bear
the impress of truth upon their face;
its deliverances must needs carry con
viction with them. They will be felt
every where felt to be true and recog
nized at aglance as unanswerable.
At once the most striking and the
most gratifying feature noticeable in
the proceedings of the convention was
the entire harmony and singleness of
purpose which obtained among its
members. The temper of all those pres
ent was responsive to the spirit of the
call which brought them together.
There were no two sets of opinions ex
cept as to methods ; all were in accord
with the temper of the.resolutions,"ahd
when these were introduced and read
by so good a man and so respected a
citizen as Rev. Dr. S. Mattoon, presi
dent of Biddle University, not a dis
sentient was found in the house! Not
one of all that number of,- not picked
men, but men invited from every where ;
men invited without reference to poli
tics or religion oiany particular... set of
views upon any particular subject.
The personel of this body is a strong
wall of defence standing between thoe
findings and any person or persons,
any where, who for any reason might
attempt to controvert them. The facts
asserted are all susceptible of proof,
and he who would attack the source
from which they' proceed must look
well to the joints of his own armor;
that of those of whom he , might desire
to make antagonists, is impregnable.
We have no desire to withhold ex
pression of our gratification upon the
result of the labors of the convention.
It furnishes just such a document as it
is needful to our welfare to have gen
erally disseminated; and it emanates
from just such a source as could give
to it the greatest w eight. While thank
ing the members of the convention for
the lively interest which they man
ifest in their adopted homes, and for
the kindly and heartily Teciprocated
sentiments which they entertain to
ward those who were so lately their
enemies, we congratulate the conven
tion upon the results of this country as
going far towards bringing about a per
fect understanding between the dif
ferent sections a consummation which
has been so long and so devoutly wish
THE REPEAL OF THE PRIVILEGE TX.
A day or two ago our special corres
pondent telegraphed us from Raleigh
in regard to the repeal of the privilege
tax paid by merchants under the pres
ent revenue law, by the session of the
State Legislature now in session at
Raleigh. On the strength of the tele
gram, we hunted up the law and found
that the privilege, tax was " five dollars
and one-tenth of one per centum on
purchases made by merchants in or out
of the State ;" and as the telegram was
explicit only in .the fact that the "priv
ilege tax" was. repealed, we construed it
to mean that both the five dollar , tai
and the ad valorem, tax were ' repealed.
It now turns out that only that portion
of the privilege tax which makes; the
merchant liable for the payment of the
five dollars is repealed, and that the ad
" valorem tax of one-tenth of one' per

.4Joti the Ministry' of War English
tion in France is the leading topic dis
cussed by the morning papers. A
special from Paris to the Daily Netos
says: "The' ministerial situation is full
ol aimcuitjtes out l neea not repeat the
conrlicthigiiimors; whjch'will lose their
interest after the declaration which Du-
fate?tresiaerit of the i ministry, is 'ex
pected to make m Parliament to-morrow
(to-day). - The extreme Left object
to Gresley, the new minister of war, as
a satellite of the Duke D'Aumale, and
think -the compensation awarded to
General BoreL an enemy of Republican
institutions, of the command of the
Rouen corps, too pregnant evidence that
the ministry has not shaken off the
shackles of unconstitutional and irre
sponsible power." ,
The Daily Telegraph's Paris dispatch
says : "Gresley's Republicanism is not
denied, and I do not think that the En-
flishmen will appease the action of the
liberals in opposing the appointment
of a man whose only fault is that he is
not the minister of their choice. There
is even some talk of upsetting the cabi
net, but I cannot imagine Gambetta
permitting a party to tempt him into
such unreasonable conduct."
The Standard's Paris correspondent
telegraphs the following as the opinion
of a French military contributor: "The
Left have fully made up their minds to
have the ministers and are determined
to remove all but Republicans from of
fice, and to carry out the wishes of the
electoral body, especially as regards the
ministry of war. Gambetta's speech at
Romans left no doubt as to the magni
tude of the reforms that would be in
sistedarpon. : Foremost among these is
a change in the generals in command of
the army corps, most of whom are re
garded as hostile to Republican institu
tions. These changes and reforms can
not be expected to take place if there
shall be at the head of the war office a
man so undecided in character as Gen
eral Gresley. His past, the company he
keeps, and his general skepticism in all
things, rank him among the members
of that most unmeaning of parties, the
"Constitutional Orleanists." The Left
would have liked to have had General
Faidherb, but his physical infirmities
induced them to select General Favre,
and it was General FavreJ whom Du
f aure proposed for the office, but Presi
dent MacMahon refused to sanction the
appointment and threatened to resign
if it was insisted upon. Dufaure yield

Persons afflicted with rheumatism often suffer for
a life time, their tortures being almost without re
mission. The Joints and muscles of such unfortu
nates are in most cases shockingly contorted and
drawn out of shape. To afford them eren tempor
ary relief, the ordinary remedies often prove utter
ly useless. Hosteler's Stomach Bitters, on the
other hand, Is avouched by persons who have used
it to be a genuine source of relief. It keeps the
blood cool by promoting a regular habit of body,
and removes from it impurities which, in the opin
ion of all rational pathologists, originate this agon
izing complaint and its kindred malady, the gout.
Besides this the Bitters remedy disorders of the
stomach, liver and nerves, prevent and eradicate
intermittent and remittent fevers, promote appetite
and sleep, and are highly recommended by phy
sicians as a desirable medicinal stimulant and
Ease Attainable by the Bheamatle.
Tes, although they may despair of relief, it Is
attainable by rheumatic sufferers, for there is a
remedy which carries off, by means of increased
activity of the kidneys important channels for
blood purification the acrid element to which
pathologists the most eminent attribute the painful
symptoms a theory completely borne out by urin
ary analysis. The name of this grand depurent is
Hostetters, a preparation likewise - celebrated as a
remedy for constipation, which causer contamina
tion of the blood with the bile and a certain
means of relief In dyspepsia, fever and ague, and
nervous ailments. It is, perhaps, the finest tonic
extant, and is highly recommended as a medicinal
stimulant by distinguished physicians and analysts
who pronounce It to he eminently pure and very
beneficial. The press also endorses It.
