We tare evorj reason to think . tl; at
the county thieves will soon be brought,
to justice. In spite of a corrupt ju
diciarj, in spite of the money that has
been and is still being used to hush
up the investigation, the work goes
steadily on. Tho tracV gets warmer
and warmer wilh every new dcvelop
inent. New workers arc entering the
field, and with alcoves rolled , up arc
eager for the race. - These thieves
fellow citizens, must and shall be
brought to justice, in spite of the in
fluence and means that have been
brought to hear to imped a the progress
of investigation. The scoundrells can
nottnuch longer hold the works' which,
they have thrown up for their protec
tion. The cry now i onward boys,
and this ciy must and shall not be
hushed ; 'till the last "mother's Fon,"
of them is brought to justice.' Then
we will give the public, , a discriptive
roll of them, and brant .them in the
forhead with letters that can never be
effaced thuf. r '
Trlmiiitnjy and Couutcr
. :, ' Trimming.' V"
For several weeks there have been
goingori a number of criminal p ibsecu
tious in St. Louis against violators of
the Revenue Laws of the United States,
regulating the distillation of wlmlccy.
A number of United States Revenue
officers have beon indicted and convict
ed. Notably among these are onp Mc Donald,
the Supervisor, and one Joyce,
his chief clerk and right hand man. -Both
of these men arc peculiar pets of
Gen. Grant, and partook of , his hospi
tality at tho White House, when they
were called to Washington ; and when
the President visited' St." 'Louis," they
took special charge of him, ' and con,
ducted him in his . mcanderings in tho
city. A few days ago one Gen. O. E.
Babcock, tho confidential Private Sec
retary of the President, was indicted for
complicity in these frauds upon the
Revenuo of the Government. Then a'
mighty commotion is set up at
Washington. -All at once it is discov
ered that Gen. J. B. ' Henderson, Ia
TJnited States Senator from i MssburK
who had been retained to assist the U. "
S. District Attornoy in the prosecution
ot these crimes, had made some remarks
which reflected upon tho President, and
he was summarily dismissed, as will be
eon by the foMowin dispatch sent
from Washington to St, Louis : v
Dept. of Justice) )
WAsniNOTON, 1). C. Dec;" 1075.
Uoiu D. P. Dycr United (States At
torney, St. Louis :
The sworn report of Mr. Hcnder-.
BOn'r speech; forwarded Mr: "Eaton,
nnd referred to by both you . and M r.
Henderson in your dispatches of yester
day as a correct report,-was read iufull
Cabinet to-day, and it was regarded
by every member as an outrage upon
professional propriety thus to reflect,
without shadow of reason, upon the
President, by whom his employment by
thi .department was sanctioned in or.
dcr that no impediment might be
placed in the w ay of bringing to spoedy
punishment every defrauder of. the rev
enue at St. Louis. You will advise
.Jen. Henderson of his dischargo from
further service, and wxure in his place
the aid of the, most able and efficient
counsel you cau find, without regard to
his politics. :
." nEDPiEUREroxT, Att'y-Gcneral. .
Before this dispatch was sent Gen.
Henderson had heard the muttering of
the distant thunder, that tho raajmatcs
at Washington were quivering -ru the
fex of detection, of their .complicity in
these stupendous frauds, and that it
yas determined to suppress theso pips
ficutions. before any raoro of the cri'm
inaU were shown up, telegraphed Attorney-General
. Pierrcpont iu these
'Tfords;- y- ',
St. Louis, Mo. D(s 9, : 1 875.
JTon. Ed.'P;crrepont,Atry.Gtneml :
I have seeu - your : last disatchto
Col. Dyer. My upccch in the Avery
cihq was extemporaneous Mr. Eaton
mailed you on Tuesday a sworn copy
froin the stenographer of so much as he
thought related to the President. I
did notsee ie hut 1st nd,by the speech
f made. I sail .nothing beyond what my
worn duty required, and for that I
have no apology to make.
' : J. B. Henderson.;
7 And thus it will be seen that these
trials are to he brought to a speedy ter
.jainatiorr. .Thaj; for the present those
infawou3 cnn inals are to go unwhipt
of justice, and thattheir crimes are to
be covered up and kept out of sight of
the' eyes cf the community. That pa
rade about securing the most able and
efficient counsel without regard to pol
itics is all bosh, and is not worth the
paper that the dispatch was written
upon. - ,. '
Gen. Henderson was known to be
the most efficient prosecutor of these
cases that could be found, as they had
beca worked up by him, and he was
tnore familiar with the eases than any
other that could ba secured The zoal
and ability which he threw into the
management of these case struck ter
ror and dismay into the head center of
the great national King at Washing
ton, and he was decapitated. Secretary
Bristow who has also jnarufesieil some
zeal to bring these offender to justice,
may next expect to be told that his
company and services can be dispensed
with for the future Thus acts a Pres
ident who associates with those .scoun
drels upon genial aud ' Jovial terms.
Thus have the highest officers in the
land betrayed the great trusts confided
to their' keeping. Thus have" they
revelled in luxurious splendor upon the
means stolen from the Public Treasury.
,Thus has disgrace been brought upon
the American Government and upon
President Grant may in. his arbi
trary power summarily dismiss a tem
porary prosecutor, who trims too near
tho person who fills the Chief Executive
office of this country, but there is another
tribunal charged with unearthing this
rascality, that ho cannot so easily dis
miss, and which may not ''down at his
bidding". The Deonle have decutrsd a
House of Representatives , that is not
afraid to enquire into this meanness,
and which will .'faithfully, perform the
duties of its .commission, however
near it may come to the mm who has
so tar betrayed the . great trust that
bas been reposed in him. Let the
House of Representatives but ptr
form their duty and expose the devil
ishness that, has been perpetrated by
this administration, and such a victory
as awaits the Democratic party next
year, is unprecedented in the annals
of the American republic. The-ball
has been set in motion, j he thieves
are being brought to condign punish
ment. This is the result iu & great
measure of ihe great upheaval of 1874.
Let it continue, and 1875 will bo no
fsr beyond '1874 that tl iev will not
"admit. of comparison' ''
TllO IlKMItllllOll ( k to tho
Ordinance number six is in these
" An ordinance to amend article
THIRTEEN. OF THE CONSTITUTION.
' Be it, jordanitd, by the people of
North Carol na in Convention assem
bled, Th?t sections ouc aud two, of
Article thirteen, be stricken from the
Convention, and the follo'iingHsubsti
tiitcd therefor : 4
Section 1, No Convention of the
people ot this State shall ever be called
by the General Assembly, unless by .the
concurrence . of two-thirds of. all the
members of each House of the General
Assembly, except the proposition, Con
vention or No Convention, be first sub
mitted, to, the qualified voters of the
whole State, at the uext general election,
in a manner to be prescribed by law.
And should a majority of the votes
cast be in favor of Siiid Conrontion, it
shall assemble on such day as may be
prescribed by Use General Assembly.
Sec. 2. No part of the Constitution
of this State shall be altered ""unless a
bill to alter the same shall have been
agreed toby three filths of each House
of the General. And the amendment
or amendments so agreed to shall be
submitted at the next general election
to the qualified voters of the whole
Stafe, in such -manner as may be pre
scribed by law. And in the event of
their adoption by a majority of the
votes cast, such amendment or amend
mendaientd shall become a part of the
Constitution of this State.
? Head three times and ratified in open
Convention, this tho 4th day of Octo
ber, A. D. 1875."
The Article in the present Constitu
tion which this ordinance amends, is as
follows, to-wit : ,
u Sec 1. No Convention of tho poo
pie shall be called by the General As
sembly unless, by the concurrence of
two-thirds of all the membeas of each
House of tho Gene, al Assembly.
Sec 2. No part of the Constitution
of tlus State sVall be altered, unless a
bill to alter the name shall have been
read three time3 i each House of the
General Assembly and agreed to by
three-fifiht- of the whole number of mem
hers of each House, respectively ; nor
shall any alteration take place until the
bill, so agreed to, i-hall have been pub
lished sis months previous to a new
election of members to the General As
sembly. If after such publication, the
alteration proposed by the preceding
General Assembly shall be agreed to,
in the first session thereafter, by two
thirds, of the whole representation in
each House of the General Assembly,
after the same shall have been read
three times ou three several days in each
House, then the said General Assem
bly shall prescribe a mode by which the
amendment or amendments may be sub
mitted to the qualified voters of the
House of . llepresentatives throughout
the State ;.and if, upou comparing the
votes given in the whole State, it shall
appear that a majority of the voters
voting thereon have approved thereof,
then, and not otherwise, tho same shall
become a part of the Constitution."
It will be seen from this that a Con
vention of the people may be called by
a two-thirds majoity of-each House of
the General Assembly, or by a majority
vote of .the 'people, should the amend
ments be adopted.
It is also provided that instead of the
present cumbrous and tedious manner
of amending the Constitution by Legis
lative enactment, by having to pass one
Legislature by a three fifths majority,
and a subsequent Legislature by a tw4
- thirds majority, and then a vote of the
people, taking about three years, that
an amendment is only required to be
passed by one Legislature, . by n three-fiitUs-ote,
and then ratified by the peo
ple. . ''''';" -. : .. "', .... :
It seems to us that this is a great im
provement on the old mode of amend,
ments, as it permits the people, at any
time to spt;edi! make any change that
is needed in their orpinie law.
