The bill calling a Convention to Re
vise the Suite Constitution passed the
House of Representatives ou the 18th
iust.,by 81 ayes to 33 nays, and is notv
a law. The election for delegates w ill
be held on the first Thursday in August
and the Convention tvill meet on the
Gth day of September. We publish
elsewhere" iu this paper the full text o
the Convention bill which speaks for
itself. - i
We are glad to see that our Senators
Messrs. Boddie and Cooke, and onr
Representative Mr. Mitchell, voted for
the bill ratjier than do anythiuy; that
might seem to put them in antagonism
with the party that has had control ot
the Legislative department of the State
Government for the past five years.
Now .that, the measure is passed, aud
made not only thepoliey of our party
in the State,1 but a law of the laud, it
behooves all good citizens and patriots
to cat about and settle upon the best
men in the State to go to Raleigh as
members' of the Convention, to devise
a government for free and honest North
Carolinians to. live under.
The day of the men of 18C8 arc
passed, and with these days the men
who were forced upon our peop'e, are
gone into oblivion, except so far as their
names are recorded in infamy. And
now the time has come to lay aside the
abomination that they forced upon us,
as the organic law of the land. Let
every North Carolinian, Every man
who loves his State, Every man who
loves his Vace, and desires to see its
purity maintained and perpetuated for
nil time to come, lay aside all other mat
ters for a little while, and attend to
these thiugs which make not only for
the peace and good of the present gen
eration, but which are to be handed
down as bequests to our posterity
Let it uot in after years be said of the
men of 1875, they had the opportunity
of rescuing their country frokn the woes
of this mtst corrupt and hateful Consti
tution, aud embraced it not. '

what is the agency by which the proper
moulding of their thoughts and inten

is apparent to evtry one. You say it
is education, and you say truly; but
not education in' any way or form,.. It
must be a sjstemitic education a
