TUB CONVENTION QUESTION
We give up much of your space this
week to make room for tbe views of such
distinguished gentlemen as Judge How
ard, George Davis, and a number of
others who have expressed themselves on
this important question. It is a matter in
which the people have great interest, and
we feel that we can not just at tbis time
luruish tbom with reading of more vital
interest. A large number of the ablest
and best men In tbe State have spoken
out boldly and earnestly on the subject,
and their telling arguments should not be
lightly passed over. It is In the power
of tbe Legislature to say whether we
shall have a Convention to relieve us of
the present oppressive Constitution. Tbe
people can do much in determining the
action of that body by calling priamary
meetings, and giving expression to their
withes. Let us have a meeting in this

read by the President and Vice-President of
the day, one at each end of the table. These,
and also the volunteer toast, which follower,
are rather loner for our present pur nose. Of
the former, however, we like the following :
" The Ladies: Bright eyes and soft voices
are their weapons the 4JordV of creation are
their trophies. Their is the only tyranny to
which our chivalry will ever submit."
Grant was then a baby.

These toasts took in almost every variety
of thought, though most generally thev were
of a patriotic character, expressive of love
of country, love of State, admiration of the
great men of the country, and love of the
ladies, which, strange to say, seemed to be
as strong a passion with the old actors in the
scenes of that day as with some young fel
lows we know of now. James Young, Esq.,
delivered the most laconic and expressive
toast, perhaps, of any. He said: "North
Carolina slow but sure." A number of let
ters in reply to invitations are also published
Among those whose responses were read,
we find the following: Ed. B. Dudley, Rob't

of the Survivors of Gordon's Corps.
Escutcheons with tbe names of Gordon,
Lawtou and Evans decorated the walls,
while the large audience chamber of the
House of Representatives was deusely
packed with an enthusiastic assemblage.
Gov Smith presided, and introduced the
speakers. AU were warmly welcomed ;
but only one caught our attention. We
listened to Gordon because be is a United
States Senator, and representative man ot
the South. la his tipoetroplie to tbe fl
en heroes of the "lost cause." he uttered
the hope that their courage, resolution,
patriotism and love of liberty shall de
scend as ati inheritance from generation
to generation of Southerners till it rests
upou those who shall take up and com-
plete the work of bouthorn independence!
These were not precisely the words, but
they contain the sentiment. And how
tbe rebels yelled ! It was tbe old fash
ioned howl of triumph and head long pur
suit. Again, said Gordon we shall use
every honorable means to preserve our
liberties, but if the worst comes, we can
but take our lives in our bands and go
forth for a mightier couflict than ever was
known to the past ! But first he would
ask the immense audience of former
soldiers to uledtrH themtlvB m tmt

and again ihe crowd became t ramie in

A CASE IN POINT.
The recent trial of Robert Barnett in
the county of Pearson, of which mention
is made in our local column's, is one which
ought to go far to correct the wicked mis
representation with which the people of
the South have been assailed in tlrt trans
actions with the colored race. Here was
a man, most respectably and influeutially
connected, arraigned for a horrible crime
upon a negro gri, and put on his trial
upou the awful issue of life and l.n.i
with family iuUuence powerless to shield
him, the distinction of race unable to ex
onorate him. In the stern presence of the
law of the land, all these distinctions
faded awwy, and the colored victim of
brutality was accorded the same vindica
tion of her rights tjiat under the laws of
the State had before been eiveu to the
v t - - ' m an a
And it is, and so it hss always been
when North Carolinians have been free
to administer their own laws. No taint
of corruption has ever attached to our na
tive born judges, no com plaint of partiality
Ha ever been whispered to their dispara
gement. Whatever of violence or dis
order has grown up in the State in years
now happily gone by was the product of
factitious condition ot things, the result of
the elevation of men to the bench who
knew little of raw, had less principle, who
are governed by their partisan prejudice!,
and who delighted in denying justice to
the white man, and in smoothing the way
to escape for the colored man arraigned
for his crimes.
Violence, the summery vindication by
society of its rights, and the redress of its
wrongs, was the natural result of this.
The political revolution of 1 870, a revolu
tion that is still in progress, restored the
Mate to its reverence lor law, to its obe
dience to authority . And so it will be in
all the Southern States, when the curse
of carpet bag rale is removed, when the
native whites of the South are free to

THE PBOPLBf A eONBeport of the Board of County
A large and euthuatactic meeting of the
citizens of Crave was held last week at
Newborn to give expression to their views
in favor of a Convention. The meeting
was largely attended and many of the
most prominent men in that section of the
State were present snd took a part in tbe
The following expressive resolutions
were unanimously adopted:
1. An unalterable attachment to popu
lar liberty, and the principles and forms
of law established by our fathers for se
curing the same.
2. The Constitution under which we
are now attempting to conauei public
affairs (usually called the Canby Consti
tution) needs many amendments, lu order
to secure popular content, industry, thrift
and happiness ; and, before, indeed, there
can be any efficient legislation for the
advancement of these ends.
3 Without going iuto details, not now
practicable or desirable, it needs amend
ments in our judgment, in tbe judiciary,
and in the county government, which
should be reformed, simplified, and made
more economical; educational affairs, now a
scandal to tbe Slate, should be overhauled
and put upon a respectable footing ; cor
porations and private and local laws
should be subordinated to public authority
ard public interests ; the power to tax
and incur debt for the public should be
more zealously guarded ; the eight amend
ments made by-acta of the assembly in
1373 (supposed to be of doubtful validity)
should bo affirmed : the platitcdes and
trite moralities interpolated into tbe bill
of rights, tbat grand old magna eharla of
our ancestors, should bo taken out of it ;
many provisions admitted to be unintelli
gible or absurd should be made plain or
expunged ; and tbe Constitution should
be throughly unloaded of all matters
found there, not consisting oi fixed princi
ples but belonging to the field of varying
policy, and not therefore having proper
place iu the fundamental law.
4. Of the modes prescribed by the
Constitution, tbat by convention is deem
ed the one suited to our case. Tbe varie
ty and complexity of ibe defects in the
instrument to be amended make the other
inappropriate, if not quite im practicable.
5. We are therefore ot the opinion the
approaching General Assembly should
call a Convent ion to review the present
Constitution, and by proper alterations
make it consort with the interests and
wishes of the people of the State.
We disclaim all purpose or desire
through such Convention to disturb tbe
homestead provisions now secured by law,
unless it be indeed to make it more sure
and valuable. Aud also aH purpose or
wish to disturb the condition of tbe color
ed people of tbe State as secured to them
by tbe Constitution of the United States.
And as we arc advised, a limitation may
be put to the powers of tbe Convention
by tbe organic laws of the assembly, we
are content that these should be so limited
as not to touch the subjects in qws.iou.
With good will to all men, we seek to
establish a stable government for ourselves
under which we may, in peace and with
some prospect of success, labor for tbe
attainment of prosperity and happiness
for om selves, and for the honor aud dig
nity of the State.
We seek a limited, localized and eco
nomical government, without which there
can be ho personal freedom.
We seek equal aud exact justice to all
men ; no partial legislation, uo partial
dispensing of justice, uo partial nor need
less taxation, holding our self-government
well tu band aud warring against all as
sumptions and usurpations of power.
We desire to see governments rigidly
restricted within the legitimate dominion
of political power, .by excluding there
from all executive and legislative inter
meddling with tho affairs of society, where
by monopolies are fosterred, private inter
ests snbserved, privileged clashes aggran
dized and individual freedom unnecessarily
and nppressingly restrained.
This is the platform on which we stand
as constitutional reformers. The crisis is
important aud suggestive. We are said
to have, of those who agree with us, a
two-thirds majority in each branch of the
Assembly, (a rare providence in the his
tory of politics in free governments.) The
necessity for a change is acknowledged
Wby then should we not act 1 As
practical, sensible men, we must either do
so now, or conclude to remain saddled for
au indefinite future, to be ridden by am
bitious aud dextrous demagogues.
We lay our views with all respect
before our fellow men of the State and
especially before the members of the ap
proaebiug L-en era I Assembly.
CONTAGIOUSNEW OF GLANDERS.
Regarding the contagiousness of glandera
Mr. Percival submits (he followiug deduc
tion as the result of facts gleaned from
his own experience:
1. That farcy and glanders, wbicb
constitute tbe same disease, are propagat
ed through the medium of stabling, aud
this we believe to be tbe more usual way
ia which d isease is communicated from
horse to horse.
2. That infected stabling may harbor
and retain tbe iufectTou for months or
even years; and altl'ougb by thoroughly
cleansing and making use of disinfecting
means the contagion might be destroyed,
yet it Would not be wise to occupy such
stables immediately after such supposed
dr alleged disinfection.
9. That the virus Or poison of glan
ders may lie for a month in a atate of
incu nation in tbe horse's constitution be
fore tbe disease breaks opt. Of this
have bad tbe most positive evidence.
4. That when a stable of horses becomes

fearful ravages smougtBefu before it quits,

months' exemption from all dlseasec of.
