We are not aware that Mr Bullock

It b a fact that in every county in the
State, where the Conservative party has
been in power, the counties are out
of debt, and their paper is readily taken
at face value, and a number of them
have from Ten to twenty Thousand
dollars in Bank. And In every couutv

ui nuuitiu jjimy ueen in pow

count, anu ncany , every county nas

the corrupt officiate who hold the offices.
Theso arc facts.

Th Wilmington Star rightly says :
Pon't stop now to discuss the particu
lar amendments to the Constitution
that art) necessary or dosirable. It h
too late m tho campaign for prolix
arguments or elaborate discussions.'
Tho correct thing uow is to urgejun our
people the importance of going to the
polls. Don,t tell them how bad the
ptcscut Constitution L, but 'how much
tcorae it will be if, by our own supine
ueas, we permit the lladieals to electa
inajority of the dohntes.
Of course, no man in whoso behalf a
commission de Vmntico inQulreudohns
Dot already been appointed imugices for
a single moment that tho liadicals, hi
case they could control the Convention
would meet atnl immediately adjoum
without in tcrfei ing with the Constitu
.tion? They would do no such thing.
They would add to the enormities of
. the present Constitution nd then rely
on tho prestige of their victory in the
August elect? to vure an endorse
pent of their w.m Wju the LancU of the
.AJKK YOU RltJAJDY?'
Citizens of Franklin, sre you ready
to perform the solemn and responsible
dnty that-will be demanded of you by
'your suffering County on the 5th day
of August, prox'o ? Are the lines all
closed up ? Do or.r cclunins: present
an unbroken front cu every Vide?
These are questions that it behooves
every Democrat and Conservative in
our county, Kvcry man who loves his
country and desires to-see the land in
which his lot U castj redeemed, and re
claimed from the thraldom of despair
and gloom that has overspread it with
the pall ' of midnight darkness ; for the
eight years last past, to answer for him
self. Ve have been fighting a merci
less and i unprincipled foe for these
many long and weary years. At times
our banners have trailed in the dust of
defeat. But undismayed our raukb
have after every reverse closed solidly
up, and challenged the enemy to com
bat again. Last year we gained a
victory over the enemy. Wc sent, to
Raleigh, to represent us in the Legisla
ture two, of our mrst gifted ; and es
teemed fellow citizens. With the as
sistance of our ncignbor counties we
sent to the lower house of the National
Legislature another distinguished and
able citizen of our County, the lion. J
J. Davis ' . : '
This was cause for niach rejoicing.
Wc have now another great workjo
perform. The temple of our liberties
is to be readjusted, and made to conform
with our wants and needs. For that
purpose the good men of Franklin have
chosen an able and gifted citizen to per
form our part of that work. And
shall the man who ha3 been designated
by the citizens of the County, Win. F.
Green, or the man whom Judge Watts,
the bribe taker, has selected to go there
be commissioned to perform that work ?
Let this corrupt functionary and his
satelitcs have a decided and withering
rebuke administered to them for their
dictation by selecting Col- W. F. Green
as our Delegate by an overwhelming nyi
jority. Before we fhall again greet our
readers the issue will have beec decided.
.We have an abiding faith in the patriot
ism and integrity of the people of Frank
lin.' They have ever stood in solid
phalanx against the cohorts of tyranny
and corruption. We believe they will
do so now. Wc ask, beg and beseech
every man through whose veins courses
the blood of the white man to come up
to the help of his country.
Put down the Civil Rightcrs" !
Put out the thieves !
Mend tho house so they cannot break
through and steal your substance !
Rebuke theadvocates of social equality.
Denounce by your, vote the attempts
made to bring about an intermingling
of the races. Shall wo ca 1 "in vain ?
AVc believe not- The matter is with
you. lring in your veraict.
iievc it will be all riiiht.

Ilalif ux IVoitiiimtioii
Jucge Watts tadu't want the noiai-
nntion from Halifax, oh, no ! He said
prior to the nominating convention for
that county, in which he was sadly and
injjoriousdy defeated, that there was a
want of harmony in fTiat county be
tween the carpet-bog, (Larkiu and
Franklin,) the seallowag (Goodwyn &
Co ,) and the negro element, and they
wanted what they didn't have ' 'a man
of distinction and ability" to come in
and pour oil upon the troubled wa-
ters, aud hence ho supposed "he would
havo to accent the nnminntmn" frnin
Halifax His condescension, however
didnH work worth a cuss, as the scll
owaS dement QUoodwyn) left bun fr
behind. Your "distinctions and ability"
Mr, Judge Samivol. will have to seek
another field in which to be aired. "Wc
area little sorry at this result, as

monkey actions in tho Convention
would have served to enliven the some

When Qacen Victoria was about
thirty years younger thaa she is now,
she was inclined to bz very exact in
the Way of business, and more especial
ly in tbe way of promptness to ap.
pointed times and pUces. Seven
years a queen; four years a wife; and
three years a mother, she felt probably
a mora weighty dkraity resting upon
her than sbe lias felt since. Aud jet,
nocrus'. ot dignity or ryal statioa
could ever entire'yjhut out her innate
goodness of hcirt. At the time of
which we apeak, the Duchess of Sath
erland held tbe otiice ot ui'atrcis ot the
robes of thy British fpi-sca. and oJ
public occasions ber positiaa was vety
near her royal person, and d oaied of
greatimpnrtar.ee. A dy and an hnur
had been appointed for a certain pu
He ceremony in which tue qaccn waa to
take part. The hour had arrived, ant
ot ail tbcjurtthe duchess alone was
absent, and beabscence retarded tha
departure. The queen gave vent more
than once to her impatience, and at
lcw,t' , j'ut aa she "was about lo mtrr
the carriage-without her first lady of
honor, the duchess, in breathless bast,
made tier appearance, stammering some
faint words of excuse. -'My dear
duchess" said the queen, smiling,, "I
think you must have a bad watch."
And as sbe thus spoke she unloosed
from her neck the chain of a magnifi
cent watch she herself were and p2Escd
it around the nrckof Lady Sutherland
Though piven ps a prceent, the lesson
conveyed with it made a deep impre3
sion The prond dnch'esa changed co"
or, and e- tear which she ccu'.d nrt te
press, fell upon her cheek. On tie
next day she tended her resignation,
but it was not accepted. It is said
that ever afterwards sbe was it any
thing more punctual than the queen
Advice fob Dcxl Times. Adver
tising is a great bother. It only brings
a lot of folks to your place of business.
If they want you, let them hunt you
up. Then it you get your name in the
paper you will bp bored with drum
mers, and people from the country will
call on you and you will have to show
them goods, and like enough have to
do up bundles for them, which will
exhaust your stock so much that you
will be obliged to buy more goods,
which is a greater trouble. If you ad vertise
too,t gives place a reputation
abroad folks will go there and crowd
you and make it too lively. If you
dont want to c"o anything, keep still as
Waktkd to Know. If the heart
that failed ever resumed payment. .
If the person who was bent on mis
chitf hurt his back.
If tbe dying embers of a fire experi
enced any pain in their last moments.
It the wheel of fortune is attached to
a cart or wagon.
If?.the .person who collected his
thoughJ&Sised bi3 hands.
It the man who swallowed bis temper
euffered from indidestion.
Who stopped the maa who let his
thoughts run awav with him.
If the man who drowns his troubles
in drink ie guilty of murder.
Can a gentleman be accused of "lar
ceny from the person" if he takes a la
dy's hand ? '
If the lap of luxury wears an apron.
If tbe girl that clings to hope has
not a slippery hold.
If the person who was buried in
thought prefers that way of interment
to a grave.
