man were invited to join in the exercises of;
valuable work in the canvass. His friend
were much disappointed at this turn, but
Mr. Brown claimed I that it was for the

, Ho sounded the first notetf libertv in
Jsorth Carolina! There are claimants for
this honor, but their claims are not fully.es
tablished. Iu the unsettled state 0f .affairs
immediately preceding the Involution of
I776 public opinion Was drifting insensibly
for a number of years in the direction of a
higher form of civil liberty.
Besides this many have confounded liber
ty with independence. The design to pre
serve their liberties was universal before the
thought of independence gained any hold
Upon the public mind. Col. Moore, iu bis
history of North Carolina, affirms that as
late as the meeting of the Continental Con
gress in Sept., 1774, there were but three
men in America who contemplated actual
independence of the crown of England.
These were Patrick Henry of Virginia,
William Hooper of North Carolina, and
Samuel Adarus of Massachusetts.! These
three had given utterance to sentiments of
independence, but the Congress avowedjts
loyalty to the King, and protested its devo
ticn to the British Constitution. TheCon
gress of North Carolina in August, 1774,
protested the same loyaltv. But at the same
time there were opinions on the subject of
1 . 1 1 1
aumau rigius, ami nians ana purposes on
the subject of trade and taxation, and re
solves on the matter of a union of the Colo
nies, whose inevitable consequence iwas the
ultimate independence of the colonies, un
less the British Parliament should recede
from the position they had deliberately
chosen. It matters little who first called
for independence, provided we know who
first avowed the, principles that inevitably
led to that result
Without claiming that these principles
were, first conceived in Bo wan county, or
i 11. .1 11 .1. 1 . i 1
even ruui mat iney were iirsi avowcu uere, i
from the documentary evidence before the;
public for thirty years, it may be affirmed
that the first recorded adoption of these
principles occurred iu Salisbury. Nearly a
year before the patriotic citizens of Meck
lenburg adopted their famous "Resolves" of
the 31st of May, which so irritated Governor
Martin, and provoked his aurv letter from
the lower Cape Fear; and nearly two years
before the National Declaration of Inde
pendence, the citizens of Rowan adopted a
paper that contains the germs of independ
ence. This was on the 8th of August, 1774.
The evidence of this is found in the Journal
of the Committee of Safety of Rowan Coun
ty, found recorded on pp. 360-2 of Colonel
Wheeler's Sketches of North Carolina, vol.
second. This document was discovered in
Iredell county, among the papers of the
Sharpe family by the Rev. E. F. Rockwell,
and published by Col. Wheeler in 1851.
William Sharpe was the last secretary of the
Committee, and preserved the minutes that
were found in the hands of his descendants.
Col. Wheeler vouches for the genuineness of
This Committee of Safety began its ses-
sious, according to these Minutes, on the
8th of August, 1774, seveaieen days, before
the assembling of the first North Carolina
Provincial Congress. This committee was
probably chosen at the time appointed for
electing members to tue (jreneral Assembly
of the Province, or it may have come into
existence before that time, in obedience to
the wishe- of the people. Tlie members of
the committee were chosen from all parts of
this fjrand old county, and numbered twen
ty-five. The following is a list of their

Townships will be called upou in tlieir
primary elections, to 6elect suitable err
sons to fill the various couutj' offices, i Iii
the election in November, party lines Will
be strictly drawn. In older to secure
success to the entire ticket it is a matter
of prime importance that none but good
men and such as have Iwen strictly true
to the party should be selected. We h'ave
a class of office-seekers who are always
williug to abide the action of convention
wheu they receive the nomination, :but
wlieu they fail to receive it, they are
ready to bolt and run as independents!
thereby disorganizing and setting at defbf

do this, knowing that they will always
receive the support of the Radical party?
who watch fp" every opportunity to 6trikei
a blow at democracy., ltwill not do I for

man who has ever run as au independent,
as no true Democrat cap hopqrably sup
port any such. ".1'-' . '. ... j

Mr. Editor Having seen many persons
within the last dav or two and having eon-
versed freely with them on the subject of
our next representative, 1 find almost unan
imously they are in tavor of Thomas J. Sum
ner as the man wanted by western Rowan.
The eastern pail being conceded as entitled
to the otiier representative; we leave it for
them to name him. Every township has
had its turn in the Legislature or a chance
at it since the war. except Locke and Unity.
I mean west of the N. C.R R. And now
in presenting the name of T. J. Sumner of
Locke Township, we not only present a man
from a hitherto unrepresented township, but
a scientific, thoroughly educated and prac
tical farmer as well as being well versed in
almost all other sciences and an expert in
Railroad mattcis of which 83 many projects
constanly press our Legislatures. In short
he is one of the men who know our wants
and riglits and will fearlessly battle for
them. We bespeak for him a unanimous
support at our county convention and a tri
umphant erection. , ' - - E.
P. S. We have not asked his consent to
use his name. We scorn those who are elec
tioneering for the candidacy and pick up
him who does not seek the office. E.

"At a meeting of the Committee, August
8th, 1774, the tollowing resolves were uuan
imously agreed to :
Resolved, That we will at all times, when
ever we are called upon for that purpose,
maintain and defend, at the cxnense of our
lives and fortunes, his Majesty's right and
title tb the Crown of Great Britain and his
dominions in America, to whose royal per
son aud government we -profess all due
obedience and fidelity.
Retolced, That the right to impose taxes
or duties, to be paid by tlie inhabitants
within this province, tor any purpose what
soever; is peculiar and essential to the Gen
eral Assembly, in whom the legislative au
thority of the colony is vested.
; Resolved, That every attempt to impose
'much taxes or duties by any other authority,
is an arbitrary exertion of power, and an in
fringmeut of the constitutional rights and
liberties of the colony.
I Resolred, That to impose a tax or duty on
tea by the British Parliament, in which the
Xorth American Colonies can have no repre
sentation, to he paid upon importation by
the inhabitants of the said colonies, is an act
of power without right. It is subversive to
the liberties of the said colonies, deprive
them of their property without their own
jfonsent, aud thereby reduces them to a 6tate
0 ' slavery.
1 Rewdred, That the late cruel and sangui
nary acts of Parliament, to be executed by
military force and ships of war upon our
lister colony of the Massachusetts Bay and
town of Boston, is a strong evidence of the
corrupt influence obtained by the British
Ministry in Parliament, and a convincing
proof oi their fixed intention to deprive the
colonies of their constitutional rights and
: Rtxohed, That the eaue of the Untn of Bos
ton ithe common cause of the America Colo
nies. Rtsohei, That it is the duty and interest
of all the American Colonies firmly to unite
in an indissoluble union and association to
oppose by every just and proper means the
infringment ot their common rights and
Remits!, That a general association be
tween all the American Colonies not to im
port from Great Britain any commodity
whatsoever (except such things as shall be
hereafter excepted by the General Congress
of this Province); ought to be entered into,
and not -dissolved till the just rights of the
colonics, are restored to them, and the cruel
acts of the British Parliament against the
Massachusetts Bay and town of Boston are
i Resolted, That no friend to the rights and
liberties of America ought to purchase any
commoditv whatsoever, except such as shall
be excepted, which shall be imported from
Great Britain after the General Association
shall be agreed upon.
Resolted, That every kind of luxury, dia
sipation,'and extravagance ought to be ban
ished fronr among us. . - f
Resohedi That manufactures ought to be
encouraged by opening subscriptions for
that purpose, or by any other proper means.
Resolted, That the African is injurious to
this colony, obstructs the population of it by
An analysis of these resolres. shows that
these early patriots comprehended all the
gicut uwmucs oj civil liuerty. luey ue
gan with Hie profession of loyalty to theii
king. An examination of a large number
oi similar papers adopted about the same
time in Virginia and in the more northern
colonies reveals the same acknowledgment
ot loyalty to the House of Hanover. To
nave omitted it would have been evidence
of treasonable designs. Jlen educated r.n
der monarchical rule sometimes affirm their
loyalty in amusing ways. The Parliament
of England, in the days of Charles the first.
levied war against tue king m the name of
the kiug himself, for bis own good. Ia the
case of the ltevolutionnrr natriots. there is
..... . . r r'
little reasou to doubt the genuineness of
ineir proiessions in the early days oi the
strucrsrie. l nev entertained hones oi sec.ur
ing ineir iioerties uy the repeal of the odi
ous laws, as they had done in the matter of
the stamp duties several years before.
liLthe next place they firmly declared that
no person had a right to levy taxes upon
them except their own representatives in As
sembly. This was the pivot on which, the
whole matter turned. And to prevent the
arbitrary imposition of taxes, they propose
an indissoluble union and association of all
the American Colonies, and do all in their
power towards-securing this union, by ap
pointing deputies to' a Provincial Congress
and recommendirg those deputies to secure
the appointment of representatives to a Con
tinental Congress. Hie other resolutions
concerning luxury, home manufacture, the
slave trade, and sympathy with Boston, are
subordinate to the others.
- Having affirmed their political creed the
Committee adjourned until the 22d ol Sept.,
1774. At the next meeting, Wm. Kennon
appears as chairman and Adlai Osborne as
clerk. Their first business was to read and
approve the Resolves of the Provincial Con
gress that had met iu the interval, and take
steps towards carrying theai out Maxwell
Chambers was appointed treasurer of the
committee, and an order issued that each
militia company in the county pay twenty
pounds proc. into his hands. As there were
nine companies of militia in the county,
this would aggregate the sum of 180 pounds,
or between four and five hundred dollars.
This money was to be used by the commit
tee at discretion, for the purchase of pow
der flints and other military muni lions.
This conduct as early as Sept., 1784, show
ed that the idea of resistance was growing
up rapidly in the minds of the patriots of
powder, and examined carefully iuto the
political sentiments of the people. If they
were not satisfied with a man's conduct,
they did not hesitate to declare him an ene-

enter suits against others, and torbidding
some. No donbt many of their acts were
arbitrary in a high degree, aud sometimes
an infringment of the liberty they proposed
to protect. But when the storm of war was
about to break upon the country, the com
mittee acted vigorously, awaking zcaT, sup
pressing disaffection, emboding militia com
panies, providing ammunition, and doing
all they could to support the cause of free
dom. Nor did they confine themselves to
deliberation, but they took the field. Gen.

A Shooting Racket in Statesville.
A very lively racket occurred at the depot
in Statesville, night before last, while the;
omnibusses were waiting for the train, the
participants in which were two hotel clerks,
a colored porter and a livery stable man.
It seems that a difficulty arose between a
young man named Boshamer and Jno. D.
Kerr, when a colored man put in to help
Boshamer, and subsequently, Jim Reeves, a
clerk in one of the hotels, did likewise.
The story brought down by passengers on
the train is that Kerr knocked Boshamer
down first, and then the negro; then being
attacked by Reeves with a stick, drew a
pistol and fired at him, the ball taking ef
fect in Reeves's knee.. This put an end to
the row. Charlotte Olxerttr.
