TOE -.HO WAS COUNTY COMMITTEE OF SAFETY. . -i i..-l s" "tiui r; , 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 the document. 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 names: Jas. McOay, Andrew Neal, George Cathv, Alex. Dobbins, Francis McCorkle, Mathew Locke,' Maxwell Chambers, Henry Harmon, Abraham Denton, William David son, Samuel Young. John Brevard, William Kennon, George Henry Barringer, Robert Beii. Jno. Bickerstalf, John Cowden, John Lewis Berd, John Nesbit, Charles McDow ell, Robert Blackburn, Christopher Beck- man, William Sharpe, John Johnson, and Morgan Brvan. -At their first recorded meeting, Aug. 8th, 1774.tbis Committee adopted seventeen reso lutious upon public affairs,showing that they wrre iu the very forefront of liberal and patriotic opinions As this paper is not generally known, we give it entire.

"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 lilrcrties. - : 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 privi leges. 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 repealed. 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 no wan powder, and examined carefully iuto the political sentiments of the people.

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..
