King Grant hat aent to Congress

raging public sense and decency.
lyThe moneyed Ring is now moving
heaven and earth to defeat the Usnry bill
before the Legislature. Will they sue

people say f They will say retire to the
shades of private lif , ye unfaithful ser
rants, and they will retire.
j2T If it if dangerons to call a Cons
vention because it will arouse Grant and
Sheridan, it is dangerons to talk about
the mattei, or to at'empt to amend the
constitution by the legislative mode. Iu
fact, it is dangerous for the legislature
to do any thing without first sending to
Washington to ascertain whether Grant
will allow it.
The people of Ashe county held a
meeting a few days a.go, and instructed
their members in the Legislature to vote
for a Convention. And no one proposed
to go to Washington to consult with
democratic members of Congress as to
the propriety of the measure! They are
almost as reckless as the signers ot the
Mecklenburg Declaration of Independ

see it deserted by those whose fostering
care was faithful to its death, for it is not
now profiable to take care of its corpse
or keep vigil over its grave.
Now, as a sequel to the dramatic scenes
of the House referred to above, we re
spectfully snggest, since our legislators
can not agree upon the vital importance of
a Convention, that they proceed to hold a
caucus, 'H wo-thirds concurring," and nomi

the Conservatives to take up and put for

who have done the least for tho Conserva

suggestion will meet a hearty response.
We do not profess to be wiser nor braver

That most abominable of all the force
measures yet devised by the enemies of
the. South, parsed the lower House of
Congress last Friday by a strict party
vote. The Rads bavins changed the
rules in the House to suit them, will have
no difficulty now in re-passing this bill
should it be sent back from the Senate with
amendments. If it does not now become a
la w( it will be because the malignant enemies
of the South and the corrupt Radical lead
ers in Gongress are too cowardly to assume
the responsibility which such an act of
villainy will impose. And here is our
main hope for its defeat. Should it be
come a law, it is not probable that we
shall so easily get i id of it as some imagine.
Wc may have a sufficient Conservative
majority to repeal it in a few years, but
judging from the past, we cannot count
with any certainty that our party will be
a unit for repealing it, notwithstanding
its odiousnegs. We fear there will be
some who will say, "O we had better
not undertake to do this thing lest we
arouse afresh the northern people lest we
bring down upon us worse measures,
more reconstruction laws. Sheridan or
Graut," That there will be subservient
tools and contemptible boot-licks who will
use such arguments against interfering
with it, we do not doubt. For example,
who imagined two years ago that we
would now have men among us claiming
to be democrats opposing a Convention
simply through fear of Grant and the
Radical party ? Who imagined two years
ago that a Legislature claiming to have a
two-thirds majority of Democrats would
allow any obstacle to stand between them
and constitutional reform 1 Why, such a
want of manhood, of independence, of firm
ness as has been exhibited in opposition
to this Convention question, is utterly
irreconcilable with the idea of freemen.
Such conduct is worthy of slaves only,
and tends to degrade and humilate onr
people in their own estimation. For very
shame, for decency's sake, let us have the
courage to do what we believe to be right
and necessary for onr own well being and
the good of oar children.
To come back to oar subject, we can
see nothing but ruin for the colored peo
ple, in this bill, as well as trouble to the
white race. It will brio about an irre-.
pressible conflict between the white man
and the negro, which will eventuate in the
destruction of the latter. This bill pro
po-es to do what can not be done.
aws of God can not be changed.
nature of man is equally immutable. There
is an instinct of superiority implanted in
the heart of the white man that no legis
lation can crush. It will out-live and
transcend all the efforts to supplant it.
It will grow and expand by attrition
Force bills will narish aud sustain it, un
til dignity of race and supremacy of iutel

may be persuaded to do many things, but
forced to do but few. They fall into

many errors ana tollies, and run iuto
many extremes for the want of a motive to
resist. So that if we are in danger, as
some suppose, of becoming merged into
the negro race, the effect of this bill wil
be likely to arouse aud perpetuate sufficien
opposition to save us.
Tbe wickedness and enormity of the
wrong intended to be inflie'ed upon the
south by this vilest of all the infamous
measures of a venal Radical Congress,
are such as snggest bat oae remedy. Bat
as there is no disposition on the part of our
people to resist vi et armis, aud no pros
