people meet together in county conventions, re

submitted to the next Legislature for the final

judgment, would be for them to instruct the
Legislature to call a convention without delay,
that the whole debt question raay be settled defi

is the proper tribunal to adjust this matter for

THE PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY.
We publish some extracts to day con
cerning the Patron of Husbandry, in order
that our readers may gather some idea of
their character, what they propose to do,
&c., &c. Wo have been trying to post our
selves concerning lliem and their Granges
for eotne time, and we have probably
learned as much about them as it is pos
sible to do, without joining the order.
At first I we wereiclined to oppose
them. The troublo en. ailed npon the
counlry by the I. 'agues and the Kit-Klux
had prejudiced us against almost all se
cret organis; itions, espcially such as are
political in their character. Bat we felt
as must ever close observer, the necessity
for s .mi j concert of action among thu
masses, looking to a reform ttion in the
commercial and agricultural interests oi
the country,, and for other purposes. The
objects and w likings of the Patrons of
Husbandry comport with our ideas of
what is needed and what is necessary to
be done. The secrecy which attaches to
their operations is not a serious objection,
since some of the most influential and
powerful organizations for good, and which
are daily doing as much good for the al
leviation of isiiff ring and in the cause of
humanity as any others, are also under
pledge of secrecy. It is said that they
have nothing to do with Politics. This
may or may not be, but there is one thing
certain the members will learn lessons iu
the.ir Granges that will euable tliem to act
with more prudence and discretion in poli
tical mtlteYs and it would bo prepnUer
oua to suppose that men, after being con
vinced of their power by thorough organi
cation would fail to use it, when by so doing
thpy can better their conditio.! and have
things more to their liking. We conclude
then that the tendency of the organization
js political ; but we do not think this
feature objectionable either. We need
something of the sort to make tuju think
and cause them to act more to a purpose
in political nutters. If the Patrons of
Husbandry can succeed In placing agri
culture on that high footing it deserves,
they will have effected a permament good.
We claim to ba alio at as pruioat a
most men, and we are unable to see the
serious objections to the Patro.is of Hus
bandry that certain would-be wise and
precien,t minds claim to see. O i the other
hand, we think the organization promises
good, and we believe that good will come

two or three tiuvis, tlie proposed Amend

That the present Will 'o ihe Wisp of a
Constitution needs amending, remodel
ing, re-writing, is patent to every one who
has taken the pains to examine it. A
new State constitution is the great neces
sity of the hour. Will we have it when
these proposed Amend raents shall have
been adopted ? Not at all. We shall
have a patched up constitution but little
better than before; and our chances for a
couvention of the people, the only body
that can give them the relief most needed,
hopelessly destroyed. -
The adoption of the proposed Amend
menu will give us but temporary relief,
and lhat from only a nortion of
grievances. Wh ean not, therefore, see
sny permanent good that will result from

to satisfy them that he never m ikes alio

It is believed, therefore, that there was
gross fraud iu the manipulation of this

c8lu..e.. tuu uidj-yei we oei.evo no one,
except Mr. Turner, has ever sought (o j
have the matter investi ited. The matter i
ought to have been thoroughly hnvestiga

Hot done. We can not understand why
the eo called champions of the people did
not embrace this favorable opportunity to
immortalise themselves by exposing and
denouncing the monstrous fraud which is
believed to have been committed, right
under their noses. They were certainly u Captain Tateman, a vouth of gallantry,

ful managers to that oT a monopoly. We
h ive heard it charged that all the members
were provided with free passes and that
th V wofnld not therefore endanger this
privilege by inteifering with the lease, the
child ot fraud though it be. We thought
this rather hard on our law-makers, and
are not now inclined to give it any impor-
tmce, except ti say that it was very
wrong in members of the Legislature to
accept free passes. These passes are in
tended, it is not unreasonable to believe,
as so m ich bush money, a species of bri
bery ; arid w.) are sorry to believe that
they have proved very effectual in other
states and wilb .other Legislative bodies.
Like Caesar's wife, North Carolina law-,
makers should be shove suspicion.
Th question sgifn recurs, why did
not the last session of the present Legis
lature investigate this matter ? We have
not heard it charged that the members
composing it were also provided with
tickets. But we think it not improbable
that thijy were more concerned about who
should have the public printing than about
Rail Road corruption if ts.
The public demand a thorough investi
gation, and no sham, hallway work as has
been attempted. If there was fraud in the ex
ecution of the lease it should not only be
cauccledjhwt exposed. A thorough, sweep
ing investigation should be had by the next
session of the General Assembly. Such
veuality or fraud should not be encouraged
or permitted to exist when discovered,
even though miny of the stockholders
derive increased benefits from it. It may
prove ad vantageous to some to keep silent

On the 10th day. marching through thick

the path went along the foot of a mountain
on one side and the River on the other, they
encountered the indian. It was not far from
th(J batt,e grouna of ylQntgomery in a form

Etchoe. There was a general engagement,
and fought, with bravery on both aides. The
Carolinians had had a forced march, in rainy

mistress, he found the minister, the Rev. Mr.
Theus, and company invited, already as
sembled to witness the ceremony, and be
lieved his bliss secure.
But the complcttion of his happiness was
denied him. The news of the intended
union had spread abroad, and the neighbor-
intr tories having assembled in force, resolv-
ed by a decided manifestation of resentment,
J to mar the felicity of the parties forever.

presence was d nid by th family, but no
attention Ixdn paid t-i th-tr assertions, sen-,
tinels prepared to destroy whoever should
come forth,, were p'arcd around, and the
house set on tiro in every quarter. Capt.
Tateman and. his friend, who were conceal
ed within, were warned of th? fate that a-
waited thorn, by a si.tcr of the hrid, who
had rushed through tlie flames, on pretence
of saving some highly valued prpert'y.
There wa no time for deliberation, and
the flame, which were rapidly approaching,
rendered delay iinp s3ib!e ; they rushed
forth, and running in opposite directions,
passed the guard, and receiving their fire
with little injury, found security in the ad
joining wood. The clergyman was dread
fully mangled, but on account of his ad
vanced age. not immediately put to death ;
the remaining assemblage of male visitors,
were led to a distance from the ruins, and
deliberately massacred. The torch of Hy
men, nevertheless, wa3 not extinguished,
and on the following day the nuptial bene
diction was pronounced on the enamoured
pair, at a neighlioring. farm. Such an act
could not be suffered to pass with impunity.
Vengeance was vowed against the barba
rians, who had so wantonly outraged hu
manity and amply taken. The tory party
were from that day hunted down like wild
beasts, and in a few month?, not one indi
vidual among them remained in oxistenee."
This fate of Rev. Mr. Theus, the Rev. Mr.
Bernheim, in 'his history of the Lutheran
church, does not seem to have found re
corded. He says, page 139, " Rev. Theus lived to

TUB BOY DEN IIOU8B.
The important position of Salisbury is
well illustrated by her ability to sustain a
Hotel of such grand proportions as the
Boyden House. The projector must have
looked deeply into the future of his town
when in its comparatively primitive state,
be ventured ou such a large enterprise.
His prophetic visiou is rewarding his fore
cast in the large and steady patronage
flowing npon the house. It is now kept
by Mr. C. S H wn, aud we know no
landlord whose solicit utlo for the welfare
of him guests is , so actively displayed.

arc excellent and complete, though it is
quite probable that in the rampant crowd
of a stockholders dinner, there. may have
been some delay or disappointment of ap
