Whereas we, the Democrats and Conservatives
of Rowali county, in Convention assembled, con
sider it Appropriate lo give some expression to
ourentments i-pon tJie present condition ofaf
niirs, and pending political questions, therefore,
resolved!: j '
1 Thit the so-called Itadical or Republican
parley, b reason of its corruption, tyrannv, op
preHsive jtaxation, and arbitrary exercise of pow
ers hot authorized by the constitution, has shown
itselt unworthy sj Hie conuden and support bf
any. good citizen. i f
TJiit the administration of General Grant,
while iqhas in general flagrantly violated the
constitution of the fathers, and taken away the
personal liberty of the citizens, has more par
ticularly pursued toward the people of the South
a policy ol vengeance to persecution, un worth v
of af civi ized n:uion ; and we appeal to our suf
fering arid dowi-trodden fellow citizens to go to
tbe poll.j and make one more effort for the over
throw of the party, whiefi has deprives! them of
their uivt cherished rights, and has plundered
them ol peir substance. ;

During tha ftf Bdmiaistratioo of General

states, going through the eastern part of North

men, with John Beard as Captain, and dis

and escort h;ni to the town. Tfle compauy

-Charlas Caldwell, then a young pbys'iciaa, who
wign oi me cobiany, waa sent with a
detachment-of-thirteen cavalry to meet tk
President Dear tha South Carolina line. After
much impatient aaxietv to see him, his carriage
at length appeared in the distance. Approach
ing it with trembling embarrassment, they were
disappointed to find only his gaud Hy -dreased
secretarr, who inlotaied them that the general
was some distance to the rear, riding on horse
back. Dr. Caldwell, who tells something of the
story in his qnalnt Antobiographr, informs us
that he had a set speech of welcome whLh he
had prepared'and .memorixed with great cart
but when h drew near he waa so overawed by
the presence of the majeUc hero, and statesman
that all his speech vanished from his memory
his power of utterance ! left him and; fa confu
sion and chagrin, he eould only gire a silent
salutation. . . ,
But the' familiar aVd aftahle address of Wash
ington soon dispelled his embarrassment, and
they moved forward, engaging in IrverycoWr
satioa about the revolutionary history of adja
cent localities, the President evincing ninth in
terest in his reinirks and inquiries; f
From the record it is probable (hat they
passed through Chajrlotte, theita soraJI village

Thia iicident was very pleasing to the Presi

the citisns of tbe town and surrounding coun
try, at tie old court house which stood in the
public stuare. From thence be retired to dine
at the hotel of Col. Yarbrough, who, I believe
waa th father of the late Col. Yarbrough, of
Kaleigh. Tlie hotel waa the house that was
occupied not long since by Mr. Price, between
theIinsion House and the present site of the
court souse. That night he supped and lodged
at Hughes hotel, opposite the present Borden
House, and returned next morning for break
fast Id Yarbrough'.
Al night the town was brilliantly illumina

TAKE THIS HEART LEAF.
TO A TOTTXO LADY TZXXMV
Tha wild winds are sweeping, I
Thro they floral crowned bowerr
The vhite frost is withering,
Thy heart treasured flowers;
And thou wert fondly dreaming
They would ever be gav;
But the cherished and lovely,
Were the first to decay.
TJ right dream is over
Iu glory hath fled;
The roses of the morning
Lie faded and dead.
Forget the scarlet flushed blossom,
So brief ana untrue;
Taka the Jlesrt Leaf f bring thee,
u constant and pure.
The cold winds are weeping
O'er hopaa that were vain,
The song birds are breathing
A mournful refrain.
And thy young heart is losing
Its beautiful trust,
For its silver starred banner
Is trailing in dust.
But the sprint- time wiU brighten
Tbe smile that is sad,
And tbe still harp awaken -To
notes soft and glad;
New beauties will blossom
In thy desolate bowers
Take the Heart Leaf, nay offering
Tbe queen of life's flowers.

votible of old Trinity Church, where his re
maina were recently borne for interment and
shed a tear over the bier of the good, kind Al
moner who when rich, had been their friend, in
the trying hour of need. For manv vears in
thu city, his labors were crowned wtthuc-e-,
for fame follows merit, wherever it goes. Stand
ing high in his Profession, (fcr by general con
cession he was the most Scientific Druggut
known to us at the South) commanding uni
versal respect for his gentleman! v courtesv,
scholastic cleverness, varied attainments, and
practical knowledge, he enjoyed the entire con
fidence of the cominunitr, was three times elec
ted to the Mayoralty of the Citv, an honorable
office, which he filled in an able and acceptable
manner. But the hour ef adversity is again, at
hand. From the favorite of Fortune, he be
comes, 111 a moment, the victim of Misfortnne.
On the dismal advent of Sherman, with his
flaming torch, the labors of rear- of a long

ruined and imjioverished bv the fire-fiend. But
his ardor is not damed, his courage does not

of his domestic iw.-fulncs, full of honors, and
full of years, the Age,.t of Death knocks at his
door, and says, " 1 have calltrd for thee." Tru
ly, Dr. Sill was a remarkable man. . One mere
laborious, more persevering, more thorough in
his knowledge, more studious in bis Profession,
more didactic in his conversation, aad more re
verential in his feelings, is rarely Jo be seen.
Tho' a compounder of Medicine, vet in all the
dialectics of learning, he kept bright his mental
armory. At home in Pharmacv, Philoeophv,
Politics, Literature, Theologv, "he aeemed to
know that the hill of Science must be clin:e 1
by persevering toil, and that labor itself most
be made a pleasure, to the plodding Pileriui,
who wends his way to its sun-lit summit. Deep

from the skies a yet more glorious liUrty, than
earth can give or take away 44 the liberty,
wherewith Christ hath made us free! a Liber
ty, whkh Persecution, Oppression, Tribulation,
hath no power to bind, which whosoever tasks,
shall be enslaved no more. He was indeed a

and cheer us with its effulgence. And with his

acute and intense ; but with a meek and hum
ble faith, he endnred the will of God and held
out faithful unto death. While voung he sought
the Lord with all his heart and for nearly fifty
years he was a consistent member of the Pres
byterian church of Back Creek. Many are the
virtues and graces of the spirit upon which we
would be delighted to extend our remarks, as
exhibited in his dailv wslk. Uniformly pro.
dent, courteous, kind and hospitable, peaceful
and gentle in his nature, he endeared himself
to all visitors, acquaintances and friends, espe
cially to the members of the faraitv now so sad
ly bereaved. Naturally, endowed' with a good
and healthy intellect, improved by education,
and united in marriage with the sister of the
late Dr. E. W. Caruthers, an intelligent chris
tian lady, he brought up his children in the
best manner, and cava them all as good oppor
tunities for mental and religious improvement
as could be a fiord ed. He was a man of faith
and prayer. He loved the Bible and the church
of God and taught his family to observe the

During his last sickness he ei pressed his pre
sent enjoyment of religion and future pro pert
of eternal happiness. He had neither doubts
nor (ears, but all bis view, of Jesus and theJ
promuea, .me covenant and the crown, were
decided, cheering to tlie heart. Such a testi
mony in a dying hour has been but rarely
heard. He was ready, willing, waiting -for the
angels to convey hici home. Blerred are the
dead that dje in the Lord. Precious to Him is
the death of his saints. May God richly blesa

and prepare us to depart in peace and enter
upon the joys ef ibe redeemed. Cox.
