The State Convention which convened
jliere to-day, i a grand success in the num-
- Intr of it4 delegate, the nuniberof the coun
ties .' represented j Jtbe character of dele
gates, the spirit . of the occasion, and mi
far as anything jet transacted is concern
td, in the results of ts deliljcrations. There
arc 83 couQthj represented, .embracing
among the delegates cnt up, gcntlcn.cn
from all the various walks of society in the
Statc-farmers, mechanics, artizans, law
yers ami doctors. It is the finest assemblage
of men we have cveij aeen in North Carolina.
Jhc utnost harmony ha prevailed. There
wa.4 not one on hand with an" axe to grind,"
.or if there was he was ahameil of it. Every
man who capie icre seemed actuated by the
grand lJiag idea pf relieving the
. State from the curse of radicalism. No one
knew before hand who would be nominated
for any office. one had icrsonal favor
ite he waa not ready to aacrifice far the good
of the canse. And of all the various per
sons heretofore spofc en ofj by the press for
tho acvcral ofSccs to be filled, we have not
known any of them tp c ectioneer for the
- place. The delegations hsi-v shown no em-
barrasment, and np overweaning anxiety
for individuals. Bat ail gloriously infused
wit' tiie grand idea of carrying the State,
i there seemed no room fori any thought not
j in full accord with jt. j 1

4lon surpasses all expectatjon. It is a lively
illuntration of the sentiments which have

"IMPORT ANT DOCUMENT.
Messrs. Editors: We are abnroach-
. . , . r i
ing on of the most important elections
everueia in onr : aute. in wiucn all the
State officers are to be chosen, except
those connected with the judiciary, who
hold over under a decision of the Sum-em
Court made in their own favor, which
keeps them in office two years longer than
the people intended when they were elec
The election of a U. S. aeuator, to
fill the place of one who has held that of
fice only to misrepresent and abuse the
people of his native State also depends
upon this contest ; as the legislature cho
sen this summer must elect successor
to one of the present incumbents.
There will ulso soon be upon us a presi
dential election in which the life of the
whole nation is at stake. Such being the
case, is it not well enongh to arraign the
two political parties of the State before
the people upon the records which they
have made ; - for ; each has now bad its
term in the legislative department, at
leart ; and let the people decide which
has worked for their best interest T This
I propose briefly to do, so far as the fi
nances of the State are concerned.
By chapter 46, laws of special session
1S6S, ratified on the 28th day of August,
J8C8, the salaries of the different State
officers were fixed at the radical standard
of high prices, rapine and plunder.
The democratic conservative legislature
of 1870-71, b) chapter 81, laws of
1S?0-71, ratified on .the 18th day of
Febuary, 1871, chauged those salaries so
far as they were able and reduced them to
their standard of retrenchment and re
form. Now let us see the difference as shown
by the above mentioned acts and the Au
ditor's reports for the years 1869-'70aud

This is also an item in the Auditor's

to give the items covered by it without

I suppose it is like "Abstract L" of the
quartermaster's department in the army,
intended to include everything that will
not go under any other head, or that can
not be accounted for.
I think that we may safely say that
that of 1069-70 includes the fine loung

burcans, wash-stand, dre., purchased for
the departments mentioned on pages 78,

Take the office of enrolling clerk at a
sample, aud we find from the Auditor's
report for 1869-'70, that John A. Mc
Donald, enrolling clerk, received for him
self and assistants $2,512.00 during the
session of 1869-'70, while the Auditor's
report for 1S70-'71 shows that; W. J.
Wilson was paid $806 for himlnelf and
assitants during the session of 1870-'71
making a difference of $1,706 in this office
alone. j . ;
The difference is more marked when
we recollect the work done by eaeh. The
enrolling of l869-'70 amounted to 324
printed pages, while that of 1870-'71 to
672 pages. That of 1869-'70 cost, on
an average 47.75 per printed page, while
that of 1870-71 averaged only $1.70 per !
page, or a difference of $6.05: in th
enrolling of each page of the laws.
Th members, during the session of
1869-'70, received $871 32 each, while
thoeof 1870-71 received only $632.55
difference of $2i8.77 for each member.
The radical legislature, during their whole
term, were in session 304 days, ;at a cost
of $430,958.60, or an average of $2,304
per member, while the conservative legis
lature sat during their term 190 days, at
a cost of not more than $192.950-17, or
an average of 31,031 per member a dif
fereteeot $1,273 per member.

The Xurth Carolina Senawrship. Iu
the Senate Monday, Mr. Uaiuerou moved
to lay the North Carolina, election case
on the table. Lost.
Mr. Pool then addressed tho Seuate iu
favor of giving the seat to Mr. Abbott. The
question at issue was a question of law,
and in deciding it the law, aid not the
persons concerned, should be considered.
The desire of the people of North Caro
lina was th.it the law should be: exeeuted
as the senate might find it to be, and from
them no complaint would be j heard, no
matter which way the case might be de
cided. There seemed to bo wtne ruuep
prehension a the action of the late State
convention iu North Carolina. Tint
body bad not memorialized nor attempted
to instruct the senate on this subject ; it
had merely adopted a resolution express
ing its views a resolution intended for
the people of North Carolina, aud uot for
the Senate of the United States.
Mr. Kdmuuds, in discuesiug the inci
dental question, said he had no doubt
that the legislature of North Carolina, in
attempting to elect Vance, had attempted
to insult the people of the United Slates
aud ho would be glad to resent that insult
if he could do so according to law, but he
did not see how it could be dout.
Mr. Stockton argued briefly against the
claim of Abbott.
