man is at this" time the " Ulysts" of our

the,.clements of practical statesmanship
he has feequals and, no superior, on this

ring and since the war prove his far sight-ednct-s
and devotion to the beet interests
of the Country, and his consistency, mod
eration, just appreciation of the surrouud

him to onr highest admiration. Mr. Bar
ringer's visiou is circumscribed . to no
limited glimpes of the present, but takes
a sweep into the distant future and had
the course indicated in LU letter of April
1SG9 been adopted by the Conservative
party, Radicalism would never have had
the opportunity to plunder and degade
the State. While he has been one of the
truest of the true," lus conciliatory man
ners, his unselfishness, his dignified reti
cence and abstinence from the jostles for
office render him the most acceptable

But, gOTernor, uhforiunately for yourself, you
admit in a paper writing in which you attempt
to appoint a board of commitwionera, bearing
date February 20th, 1872, after declaring that
a vacancy exists in the omce of commuFioners
of the penitentiary, that the law, has prescrib
ed no way in which uch vacancies shall be
filled durinp a recess of the general a.semblj."
With thU cUar and explicit declaratiou of

paper, do authorize and empoirer. Alfred Dock

With thee voluntary adiuimiona on your
part, embodied in the instrument by which you
claimed to appoint tlietn, and by virtue of which
they claimed their authority to ezrciae the
power of directors ofthe penitentiary, how
could we posxibly recognize them an a constitu
tional and legnl board without aanettomng an
acknowledged usurpation of unlawful authority,
govenior? And how could you exp?ct na to
recognize -them, without inxulling our intelli

since that time, passed a law authorizing you fo
appuint a board of director for the penitentiary?
If not, from whence do you derive the authority
to vacate the board appointed hy the legUlature
and appoint one to suit yourself? Who must
we obey the law enacted by the general assem
bly or the edict issued by your excellency? If
under the late decision in the case of Clark and
others vs. Stanly and others, you hold that the
general assembly could nut constitutionally a
point a board of directors for the ienitentinrr,
I how U it possible for von, as governor, without
the concurrence of a majority of the senate, to
appoint a legal board during the recess of the
general assembly? If, therefore, we are not a
legal ooaru, it is imioiole to organize a con
stitutional aud legal board of directors for the
Icnitentiary without the concurrent action of
the senate branch of the general assembly and
the governor. Yon have the undisputed right
to convene the general assembly, and have thin
dilhculty satisfactorily adjusted; and we insist
that you do so immediately. Will you do it?

eoguizc them (uh) n director of the peniten
tiary." "With all due deference to; the legal
acumen of your excellency, we beg to be ex
cused for entertaining and expressing the opin
ion that the " late decision of the supreme court
of Js'orth Carolina, in the case of C. C. Clark
and others vs. E. R. Stanly and others," doe
not decide that the board of directors of the
state penitentiary were not constitutionally and
legally appointed. Wc claim to. hold the posi
tion of directors of the state penitentiary accord
ing to the constitution and laws of N4 Corolina.
In this opinion the board of director arc forti
fied bytbe opinion of eminent lawvrs as any
in this state. If we are not in as directors ae
ccordinj to law, put us out according to law ;
appeal to the courts, we will abide their decis
ion ; but do not acknowledge that ypu cannot
put us out according to law and then attempt to
force us out by starving the convicts. When
ever the question shall be legally adjudicated,
and it shall be decided by conipe'teM authority
that we hold this position in violation of the
constitution and laws of the state, we will cheer
fully surrender this institution into; the hands
of those who it may bedecided have a constitu
tional and legal eontrol of it. Ui.til it shall be so
decided, we cannot, honorahlyj abandon either
onr position as a board of -directors or the con
trol of the public institution and ppyjerty con
fided to us by general assembly in the exercise
of their constitutional rights, Heretofore your
excellency has uniformaly recognized us as the
legal uoara ot directors of the penitientiarv ; ap
proved all our requisitions, and; the public
funds appropriated for the support iof the prison,
have been promptly paid over to us. There i
now in the public treasury between eighty and
one hundred thousand dollars, appropriated bv

and management of this institution. Regard

in the state, and holding our position under the
authority of that supreme power, we do not un
derstand by what species of executive legerdemain

and thereby thwart the will of the people aa

which we made a requisition will defray the uec-
essary expenses of the institution until you can

ernor, that these convicts are in the penitentiary
under the sentence of law, and' that while you
have the right to pardon them out, the board
of directors have no right to turn them out un
der any circumstances, unless they are pardoned
out ly you or their term ot imprisonment ex
pires. These unfortunate beings, therefore, have
no possible means of obtaining the food neces
sary to keep them alive otherwise than through
the lard of directors and yourself. We have
done our duty, the rest remains with yon. If
you refuse to let us have the sum necessary for
their support until you can convene the general

will certainly staive them. Reflect, governor,

BEARDING THE LION IN HIS
We quote from the 'Era :
"The Republican party in North Carolina
have heretofore honored, and jf tbe occasion
should require it, are ' ready again to honor
their distinguished; Senator iu Washington
City. He in turn should remember that some
thing is due to. his .friends in North Carolina ;
that Republics rusruvennnot be expected to de
rive all of its sustenance and vitality from
Washington City, that it should take root and
grow here ; that it should conform to a reason
able public senlimcut, which is of the very, es
sence ot Republicanism. Senator Pool, by
reason of his public services, and of the ipi
menso patronage at his disposal, has a very
great and wide influence."
Now, we call th' bearding the lion in
his den. What will Senator Pool say to
tin I hat will Pool s fi lends say?
The Era evidently defies the power of
the Radical Sonntor from North Carolina.
The Era does not wish to follow Pool's
leadership. As the organ of the lUdicl
party iu the State, it reads tliat gentleman
a lecture which hethould heed at his peiil.
Iu addition to public services, Pool has
"a great .tnd idp influence by reason of
the immense patronage at his disposal,"
-v a a
say the f,ra. l'atronage ; aim there s
the rub. But for that . "immense patron
age" the Senator would be fanglese.
Rut notwithstanding the ''immense
patronage" the Era still defies liitn. it
says pool'a brother Sol is incompetent
and unfit for President of the IJnivtrsity.
It says also that his said brother has
broken down Chapel Hill, aud brought
reproach upon the Radical party 1 It
goes father, and indignantly repudiates
any dictation frpm Senator Pooj. It tells
that Senator that "Republicanism cannot
be expected to derive all its sustenance
and vitality from "Washington City, that
Jit should tajie royt and grow here." Now,

that $1,000 was really all the salt cost in

to wonder at. The Sandusky arrived
here last month from Trapaiii with alt.
The salt cos' SI, 008, gold. The freight
was $4,392,90, currency, and lb- duty
was 3,GoO, gold. Hence Honest (Jeorge
may see that the Onandaa salt boiler is
protected by fiieght 430 p-r cent, ad

Some people are never eontent with
thiirlot. let what will happen. Cloud
and darkness are over their heads, alike
whether it rain or shine. To them every
incident is an accident or a calamity.
Even when they have their own way,
and, indeed, consider their most voluntary
acts as matters of compulsion. We saw
a stiiking illustration tbe other day of
the infirmity we speak of, m the conduct
of a child about three years old. He was
said the mother
csiled him iu
a peculiarity of that boy, that if he is
left rather suddenly on cither tide of a
door, he considers himself shut oat, and
rebels accordingly." There are older
children who take tho same view of
