; SAI.AR OK GOVEttNoh. -
No retluction inadein the salary of
Governor can take effect during the pres
ent term, it beiug very justly forbidden
by the constitution. Having agreed to
take the office at ti fixed sum, the incum
bent is properly protected against any
change in his salary. The proposed re
duction must therefore be made by the
Legislature this winter as new incum
bents will be elected before the next Leg
islature aud then their salaries can not be
touched for four years to come.
The salary of the Governor, now bylaw!
is $4000 per 'annnm and the use of a fur
nished house. At present the Governor's
mansion not being occupied by reason of
its bad condition, tho Governor receives
the rent therefrom. It is to be hoped
however that a suitable mansion will at
an early day be fitted up by .the State for
our Governor to . occupy. Besides this
the Governor is now allowed by law a
Private Secretary, who gets $750 per an
num, besides sundry fees and IkuP leave
to employ an additional clerk at $600.
The latter appropriation our present pop
ular Governor uses only iu part, but the
Legislation, it will be remembered,is not
for him but an unknown successor. To
sum up; the Chief Executive- for himself
and his clerks is now entitled to $5,330
besides house rent, postage aud iuciden-,
tal expenses of his office. Before the war
Graham, Bragg, Keid, Ellis, and others
received $3000 aud no clerk hire. Why
then should there continue to be this in
crease of $2,350 in oue office to be paid by
a people not half as wealthy .a, we were
in 1800 !
The increased salary of this officer .is
another of the exjense8 entailed on us by
the Radical Constitution of 1363. Up to
that date the Attorney General was paid
a salary of $200 per annum, i. e., $100 for
each term of the Supreme Court, aild the
office combined with that of Solicitor of
the Raleigh District. By the constitution
of 1803 the office of Attorney General was
more properly united with that of Re
porter of the Supreme Court but unfor
tunately while';, retaining )Ijis fcalaj-y ofa
$200 aforesaid,'and fees, an additional
salary of $1,500 was added so that at
present the salary of the Attorney Gen
eral is about $3,500, to, wit r?

The duties of the Attorney General,
aside from those of Repbrter,' are almost

States. His duties, so. far from 'interfer
ing 'witir' practice are a good advertise
ment. WI13; thei tax-paycaW should con
tinue to pay $3,500 for Attorney General
when there are at least 100 competent
lawyers in the. State . who would be glad
to get the placo at $1,500 per annum (or
certainly at the present Reporter's' salary
plus tho old Attorney General's salary of
$200 per annum) is a question; which this

The convention now about ended has
been ouo of great interest. The large and
influential body -of Christians which .'lias
had its representatives with jus for 'four
days past has had much wise legislation
perfected in its behalf. The deliberations
have been harmonious, the discussions
have been temperate, aud many of the
addresses have been marked by vigor aud
ability. This dignified body has com
prised among its members quite a! num
ber of distinguished getitlemeu some of
them eminent in their holy calling, others
kuowu as sagacious meu in the councils
of State. Tlie convention has beeu in all
respects creditable' to the Baptist church
of North Carolina; it Well sustains the
reputation of that denomination for intel
ligence, piety and zeal, and its labors last
week must result in the spiritual iip-build-
ing of the set the welfare of which it has
so plainly shown it has close at' heart.

"Last v week we 'mentioned the escape
from the stockade of Henry Husky and

brave aud somewhat novel manner. Mr.

well-known convict stripe beneath an old
pair of pants on oue of the negroes. He
discovered that Heury had a pistol (ths
one stolen from the stockade when they
left), which he proposed to buy. The
negro offered it for $3, and Mr. P. took
out the money to make the purchase, but
before paying for it asked the privilege of

Nevada has gone Radical. This makes
a tie of the States, supposing Indiana
votes with the Democrats, and Califor
nia to hear from. It will certainly go
Radical. The Baltimore Gazette is try
ing to draw comfort after this sort :
"There is every reason to believe that
Daggett, the Republican elect in Nevada,
obtained his seat throngh bribery and
corruption. Sharon and Jones have mani
pulated the State, aud Mr. Daggct repre
sents, their money and not the State . of
Nevada. The first duty of the next House
should be to examine Mr. Daggett's bag
gage, and if the taint of corruption is
found clinging to his garments he should
be promptly hurled from the bnttleuieuts
of the Capitol into the stagnant moat
known as tho old canal." (

act with caution and do what is right
and honest. They were rather swilt in
