-At a meeting of the Democratic Executive
Committee of the Seventh District held at
Statesville on j Tuesday the 8th, a Conven
tion to nominate a candidate for Congress,
was called to meet in Y A D K IN VILLE on
THURSDAY, he. th of August.
--The Observer of Sunday last, brings re
port of the proceedings of a Radical con
vention in vv hjcli there were several in
cidents of public interest. We note firtt,
thatVni.'R. Myers ami Gen. li. Ban in
ger'were the only white men' who took
part, , The oth
er speakers were negroes.
John Sehenek,
colored, seemed to be' the
I ruling spirit of the body, and when resfttf
i ed in noma of the proceedings of the nieet-
in,;, rose up with his follower?, and threat
j ened to,;vacatejhe Hallr This brought
j up Gem Ban ner, who gave in toSchenck,
I and begged the meeting-to do'so. He was
j successful Harmony was restored, and
;the'meethig proceeded with its business.
But we note seeoned, that in, the course
of las .speech ( Gen. JJamnger declared
. j that jif the Democrats ever got the power
-1 theywonld restore slavery : He Icneifi then
denied it, but they a cre liars !t
: j We put this on record for the General's
benefit hereafter. Was it said to appease
Schneck, and scare up the negro vote!
. "Was it intended to signalize extraordinary
courage iu behalf of radicalism t Was it
in pajtnent of a debt to the radical party,
from whom it is reported the General has
received substantial tokens of, favor!
Was it becanso he believed what lie said
' jwas true! These are interesting inquiries
! land we leave them to our readers io solve.
The General has placed "himself ! beyond
the pale of a charitable construction by
the violence of this own language. Men
are at liberty to believe what the please
ot him. . ' " i
The strength of the Democratic party in
iJforth Carolina is beyond all question. The
only trouble about it is to get them; to go to
the polls. A gentleman from Atwell town
ship safil to us a few days ago "nearly all
the focrcashes in Atwell (there are about
160 of them), are good solid men and dem
ocrats, bat not more thanixtv of them ever
troubletheinselves co go to thjt polls." This
is an exceptional year. The democrats iof
this great country are gojngto vote a tre
mendoas rebuke to thef&'publicans for put
ting Hayes in TildeoAs place, and every good
Wan in Audi's township, we trust, will
make a. hand at the work. ; ' ' '

We" suppose farther,-that they en
deavored accurately to calculate the
amount of the rik and t(Kprovide for
meeting all the demands of the venture
with cash. A failure in either pe, ?
pecmllflielast, would le likely to prove
-embarrassing if not disastrous to their
hopes. Why T Betanso ready cash is in'
disiensable .W al operations pf this
kind. .Without it he company soon saf--fer
a Toss of confidence. Local - business
men, niay, afford temporary relief,. but , in
their ignorance of the financial standing
of the com puny, they naturally .become
nervous and fear'al aa they , feel the
weight of the help they are giving, and
a failure to come-to time is apt to precipi
tate movements to secure themselves.
This is all very natural, and although it
may; sometimes afford the ground work
of complaints of bei ug hardly dealt with,
it cannot ' bo denied that similar actions
under; similar . cirepmstanees sis the rale
the world over, anjd the exceptions no
more rare in the South than elsewhere. It
is a .(act, then, that companies engaged
Tit mining in North Carolina, must pra
vide to meet business engagements with
promptness, in small as well as in large
transactions, orenepcuter the usual scram
bles that men make to protect themsel
ves against loss, or japprehended loas.
" If it be true that northern mining com
panies satisfy themselves in advance of
the probable character of the mine in
which they propose to invest hiouey, (and
we giye them credit for so doing), then,
by the judgment o f men who profess to
be competent to pass on such matters,
the mining properrj- of North Carolina is
worth all the ventures that have been or
may yet be made tj test their value. No
honest company win make an important
venture on the mere word of - a proprie
tor. but, the property is first closely in
spected and subjected to thorough tests.
The company's age it enters the mine and
takes from it the o es and subjects them
to a satisfactory exsitniuation. No amount
of bulling will sell ja gold mine to men
who expect to work it and get oat of it
the purchase money. It must be proven
to be all that is claimed for it. The dis
honest work in mine transactions is not
done by the North . Carolina proprietor
who proclaims thatj he has a gold mine
worth sidling, Hp is geuerally a poor
man and sella becaHse he is not able or
willing to incur t!e expense of working
out the property. ! AU the bulling he
can do can ouly elicit a thorough exami
nation f his property by men who are
supposed to possess! scientific knowledge
of the , subject, and a ' sale at any price
must be accepted as proof of value. .
If these promised be true, then North
Carolina mines qre j worthy the attention
of northern 1 capitalists, notwithstanding
a captious man berejind there, may say
the coutrary ; and j this brings us to the
poiut we set put to reach. JXVe are willing
to make allowance for the feelings of one
who has adventured and failed to realize
expectations; but when he predicates
upon that the , assertion that there is no
minrng property in the State worthy of
an honti4u vestment of money, he should
see that he brings his judgment in direct
conflict with scores of others equally
coinjHiieui. 10 give, an opinion, and who
are actually demonstrating the contrary ;
for there are many mines and miners in
the State. This is an attitude we do not
chose to caiument ox, bnt it must suggest
to any onetoccupyiug it doubts as toils
propriety, and whether it may not sub
ject him to ail off-hand, criticism. It
certainly has no general concurrence, or
mining would soon cease to be a business
inthc State ; wheaeas it has been and is
yet arrowing interest, and men esteemed
to be wise in such maters think we are
just noweutering upon developments of
far greater importance than ever hereto
fore concei yed of. Al most every day
brings .to light the existence of hidden
minerals in our hills ivtid valleys, whilst
mines -which are worked with skill are
generally remunerative. . .
Trcss Conveution.'
The Convention met in Ashcville, North
Carolina on Wednesday, June 80th in. ac
cordance with an invitation extended by the
people of that pleasant city.f We do not
propose to tax the general reader with the
businees proceedings of the Convention, but
win only give some impressions of. the oc
casion, and the reception and general treat
ment of the Press by the hospitable citizens
of Asheville , Before we had reached our
designation, we were met by Mr. Natt At
kinson, the fruit man of Buncombe. He
emptied a basket , of -fine apples into our
car, which was a thing to be appreciated.
At the term.nas of the Railroad, we were
met by stages, hacks, (carriages &c., sent to
convey our members to the city only dis
tant five miles .Jn Asheville, the Editors
(some people iTf "J-Jiem dead heads) were
kindly taken ttige of, and conducted to
the most pleasant homes in the city. On
Wednesday evening ai reception supper was
tenrtered,. and a ; most sumptuous affair it
prove;! tvbeT enjoye4 beyond ear power of
description.. One vej-y amusing scene oc-
curreu t o urmg the wrening : , One of the
liandspmest Editors pjrescnt was so unfortu
nate as to accidentally dip : his countenance
into the .cold sweets
to the astonishment
of a saucer of cream,
and mirth of several
fiiirob3eryers.; We suppress his name for
vrint of space'
- On Thursday t evening the doors of. the
Opera Hall were thrown wide open, and the
Uall given n honor of the Press was a sue
cess. has seldom been our pleasure to
witness such a display of beauty and taste
as was presented on that occasion. . Great
thanks are due the ladies andxjentlemen of
Ashevillc forthe admirable manner in which
everything, connected with both the supper
and ball were' conduct edv
"Thanks are due MrJE. 1. Holmes for a
lot of smoking tobacco and other refresh-meats-tendered
U9. ' "Vie must say that his
smoking tobacco is put up in the best pos
sible manner and is excellent not deaden
ed by flavoring matter. His enterprise must
succeed that is if the public care for a pur
article, well put up. .
W. TvBIackwelI, the Durham tobacconist
of world wide fame, honored the associa
tion withseveral presents giving each
member a chess board and men, a package
of Durham Smoking tobacco and a fau to
keep him cool. A man equiped thusly
could laze away lots of time. .Our space
forbids that we go into particulars we can
onjy touch as it were here and there; All
agreed that the association had never been
better received, or better cured for.
Asheville is a delightful spot, the most
fashionable, and at the same time, cordial
summer retreat we have ever visited. The
beautiful views in the immediate vicinity,
are easy of access.
WThile writing of all the pleasures and
courtecies extended the Press, we do not
hesitate to say that we are opposed to this
way of accepting invitations and hospitali
ties from towns, hotels, &c. It would add
much to the dignity of the press to dispatch
their business and pay for their pleasures
as other people do. When this is done,
and the questions which really touch the
interests of the Press and the State are dis
cussed, then the Association will be at a
proper standard, and in' keeping with the
dignity and responsibility of our position.

The Bloody Shirt. The republicans
find it impossible to move a step with
out waving their old banner, the bloody
shirt. Already they have issued a sensa
tional book depicting in glowiug and
monstrous colors the Hamburg, S. C,
affair, in which the responsibility of all
the crimes there enacted are laid on the
shoulders of the Democrats. It is a tis
sue of falsehoods from beginning to end,
but that makes 110 difference at all ; with
them the object sought justifies the means
employed, however despicable they may
be. What does a party care for lying
after having once robbed the people of a
duly elected President by fraud and false
swearing. r

killed her three children on the night of
the 2d instant. She was suffering under
some great mental oppression and killed
the children because she thought she
would soon die, and did not want to
leave the children to take the chances of
the world. They were 8, 5 and 2 years
old. She cut their throats with a razor.
Her husband, now almost crazy, was
waked by the cry of ore of the children,
but did not get into the room until it was
too late to save them.

Hancock on Order No. 40.
Washington, November 30, 1867.
My Dear General : This moment I read
your admirable order. 1 am much en
gaged, but I cannot resist the temptation
to steal time enough from my clients to
tell you how grateful yon have made
me by your patriotic aud noble behavior.
Yours is the first, most distinct and most
emphatic recognition which the princi
ples of American liberty have received at
the hands of any high officer in a south
ern command, lt has the very riiig of
the revolutionary metal. Washington
never said a thing in better taste or bet
ter time. It will prove to all meu that
"Peace hath her victories no less renown-!
ed than those of war." I congratulate
you not iK'cause it will make you the
most popular man iu America (for I dare
say you care uotjting about that), bat be
cause it will give yon through all time
the solid reputation of a true patriot and
a sincere lover of your country, its laws
and its government. This, added to your
brilliant achievements as a soldier, will
leave you without a rival iu the affections
of all whose good will is worth having,
aud give you a place in history which
your children will be proud of.
This acknowledgement from me does
not amount to much, but I am expressing
only the feelings of millions, and express
ing them feebly at that.
With profound respect,
I am yours, etc.,

To Major-General Hancock.
Hancock at Chancellorsville.
Policeman Albert Bradley, who was
formerly a member of thetw;enty8cventh
regiment, Connecticut volunteers, tells a
characteristic story of Gen. Hancock. It
was at the battle of Chancellorsville.
Officer Bradley's regiment was on the
right of the line, a battery of artillery on
the left. The rebels set to work at the
battery and rained such a storm of shot
and shell upon it that many of the gun
ners were killed and the rest were driven
away. Gen. Hancock rode up among the
infantry and called for volunteers to man
the guns. Officer Bradley and others
went forward. Gen. Hancock rode at their
head through the terrible fire, j He was
a picture of manly strength and beauty
truly a "superb" man. It was impossi
ble that horse and rider should escape, and
the former went down. The' gallant
leader 6eehied deeply affected. He look
ed for a moment to see if the animal was
really fatally hurt, and "then he stooped
quickly and passionately and kissed the
faithful charger. Brushing his hand
across his eyes he said: uTo the guns
boys !" and 6n foot be remained at the
head of Ids men until every gun was
once more righted and pouring its death
dealing: missiles into the j enemy. "I
shall 'never forget the sight," knid Mr
Bradley j "and ever since I have cherish
ed a tender regard for Gen. Hancock.

Hon. Jl. Ii. Vance Dear Sir : i ,
Tis with great pleasure, and a heart
full of gratitude and love for. you that I
express my most sincere thanks to you
for your interference in my behalf to save
me from an ignominious death-scaffold.

of. So it would have been in my case had
I met the awful! doom which I was Hear

in and saved my life. Permit me again
to thank you from the; very-bottom of my
heart for the interest you have taken in
my behalf, and to hope tliati "He who
doeth all things for the best" will assist
you in finally securing for me a full and
unconditional pardon. My folks in my
mother State also tender a thousand
thanks, and will ever remember the name
of R. B. Vance,,

Right here is a good time and place to
tell what we heard one of the joss Repub
licans of Rowan say only a few weeks
ago "Bob Vance," said he, "is worth more
than any other four members .we have in
Congress; he works for the people of his
State without regard to party. He takes
hold for them at once and never lets go
nntilhe has done all that can be done."
The New York -YiV, in an ajMlogetic
article on Garfield and the DeGolyer
pavement swindle, concludes by saying
that "it is not fair to judge his (Garfield's)
conduct in 1871 with the light of 1880.
There is not one of us whose views about
discretion touching the relations between
politics and nionej have not been greatly
clarified by the eveuts of the past nine
years." All which means, if it means
anything, that bribery and theft iu con
nection with polities were in the nature
of excusable misdemeanors in' 1871, but
that "we," who have leen "clarified,"
think differently now. Mr. Garfield, for
instance, thought then that it was all
right to take his share of the DeGolyer
s wag, but probably wouldn't do so again
therefore the record should be ernsedr He
has since passed through the pangs of a
new birth and a process of "clarification"
that have made a new and perfect man of
him. We do not care to follow further the
intricacies of this curious argument, but
would suggest to the Nation that there
were some honest men in polities who
looked upon bribe-taking and venality in
office as odious offenses, even so far back
iu the ages of history as 1871, and these
meu, whether Republicans or Democrats
will take it as no compliment to be told
that they winked at rascality under cov
er of a loose public sentiment, that now,
in a pure Democratic era, they would
make haste to condemn. The Nation
may speak for itself, bnt it doesn't speak
for upright citizens anywhere. The conn
try is in 110 mood to take a candidate for
the Presidency either on probation or in
the throes of penance. Wash. Post.

An Democratic ratification

Y., July 6. Rev. Barnas Sears, D. D
LLD., of Stauuton, Va., died : here at
three o'clock this afternoon, aged 77 years.
Dr. Sears had long beeu prominent in
educational matters, and was -the au
thor of several books on educational sub
jects, and was for many years president
of the Brown University at Providence.
Wlien George Peabody gave a fund to
promote education iu the South, Dr. Sears
was made its manager, with an advisory
board of trustees. He then went to Vir
ginia. He came here about a month ago
for his health. The funeral will take
place in Boston.
One of the reasons given by Senator
Dou Cameron for so persistently refusing
the chairmanship of the National Repub
lican committee is that the position would
have cost him not less than $50,000 of
his private funds, which may be true and
may be uot. , It is probaly a somewhat ex
aggerated statemen t of the case. The Cam
erousbet high, however, on afull hand,and
there is no doubt in the world that if the
candidate, had been a .man by the name
of Grant the Senator would have put np
handsomely and taken the chairmanship
besides. He evidently looks on Garfield
stock as a risky invesment. Washington
