in the House, Mr. Robbijis, of North Car

The bankrupt act wa? a merciful measure
and ba been productive of great "good,
but it baa finished its work and the neces
sity for it no longer exists and we believe
it U best fordebtor aud -creditor, lor the
voniitry at large, that itfchould pass out
of existence. Char. Obiter ver.
Wm think the people generally concur
in the opinion tnat the repeal of this law
i urfaff. - It had become very odious. We
differ with the Observer when it speaks o
it as a merciful measure, and as being
productive of "great good." - It was nicr
tiful to the debtor, perhaps, but it was
cruel to the creditor. We suppose the
creditors will out-number those who
L availed themselves of the provisions of
the law at the rate of at least twenty-five
to one. If a measure may be called ""mer
ciful" which favors one and damages tireit
tif-firethvu it was merciful. It took the
proierty of the debtor away beyond the
- reach of the'ereditor. and divided it out
' among lawvers and officers. It harden
the hearts of debtors against creditors and
creditors against debtors, destroying con
fidence and kindly sympathy, to a degree
that seems to exclude the idea of "good,"
and to suggest evil as one of its most
prominent features', The practical work
ing of tip was, of very doubtful
"good," even to the debtor; and if so to
him, it will be, rather difKcull to lind
where it came in at all.' The repeal of
tho law is the best thing about it. It was
u pandoras box from which eminated
countless moral evils which will remain
for year to vex the people. The devil
could hardly desire a better device for
sowiug discord among brethren, and turn
ing the heart of man against his fellow.
CONVENTIONS TOWN ELECTION.
Mtssus. Editohs: However objection
able Conventions may Ik-, the method of
bnngiug but candidates by them is eei
taiuly more preferable than the restora
tion of Kadicnl misrule, extravagance aud
oppression, which would certaiiily result
should the Democratic and Conservative
party become weakened bj- inharmonious
action and internal strife. Our part' or
ganization must be preserved and party
loyalty enforced if we would achieve that
imccess in the advancement ofilie ends of
H government, so necessary to the
public weal and so much desired by all
freemen. 1 have neither time nor space
wow to make an argument in favor of
Conventions. Suffice it to say, However,
that situated as we are, tho method bf
nominating candidates by Convention is
absolutely necessary in order to secure
the election of good Conservative men and
the triumph of sound Conservative prin
ciples. We cannot afford to allow two or
three Democrats to run for the same office,
for it amounts to a surrender of the field
to the Kadical party : therefore it is pro
er to have a Convention to designate-a
candidate to contest the ground with the
champions of our political foes, aud it is
the duty of every truo Conservative to
support hiuir The fact is whenever von

In iety of Conventions, you may mark it,

DEATH OF A BELOVED MINISTEi:.
(Special by telegraph to the News.)
Xi:wi:kkn, N. C, Apiil '27. (J p. m.
Rev. Jacob Doll, stated clerk of Orange
Presbytery now iu session here, died sud
denly this afternoon at two nnd-a-half
oVlock, of heart disease. J. B. B.
There are fewministers in North Caro
lina whose sudden death will cause more
sincere sorrow than that of Jacob Doll.
He was universally known in the Presby
terian church, and greatly beloved by the
ministers of his own and all other church
es. He was of unusually social qualities.
With deep, jet simple and unostentatious
piety this man of God was always a wel
come guest to cither' scenes of joy or sor
iiemiersonvuie jcra : r rmay last a
posse of Revenue officials from Greenville,
S. C, made another raid iuto this county,
in search of "moonshinei;" They were
under the guidance of the notorious Bill
Spring, who has quit his evil .ways, and
been commissioned a Deputy Marshal.
The posse came across an illicit still in
the vicinity of the old Stockade, destroy
ed it and captured two or three of the
"moonshiners," whom they proceed to
bind with ropes, and started to run into
South Carolina. Two of The posse, nam
ed respectively 1 villus Springs (a brother
of Bill's) aud Rufns Goslin, were ordered
to cut and destroy the stifl. The uiajn
liody had not gone far before hearing a
shot in the direction of the frtill. Return
ing Hiey found Rufus Springs dead, he
having been shot 'through tlje back, and
Rafus Goslin clubbed nearly to death.
Alarmed for their safety, they released
their priscuers, tMik up their dead and
wounded comrades and retreated, The
"mooushii.ers" bitterly resent thefieason,
as they call it, of the Springs, and have
threntciietl to take their lives whenever
an opportunity occurs.
