Early Voyages of Discovery.
As there has been, so much said and
done in modern times about expeditions
towards the north polcit may be of in
terest to some to knqw what was done in
former days. .
The following is mostly extracted from
an old geography, title page gone, but
published in England- probably aboutJ
The first we'read.bfjhat searched for
the north west passage was Slartiu Fro
bisher, inamip 1576, with two barks com
ing to the latitude 62 degrees, found a
great inlet of 60 leagues in length, and
main laud on both sides," called by him
Frobi.xber's straits. He found there a
certain oro which he thonght to be
gold, and the next year made voyage
to fetch a quantity of it, but it proved
but black lead. In 158 Sir! Humphrey
Gilbert went to the great river St. Law
rence, iu Canada, took possession of the
country and settled a Fisherytrade there.
In 1585, Mr. John Davis was employed
for -'search of the north west passage : the
first laud he came to, he called the land
of Desolation j then" he arrived in Gil
bert's sound, in the latitude of 64 degrees
and 16 minutes. Thence they went to
60 and 40 minutes to Mt. Kaleigh, Totnes
souudetc. In 1586 he made a second
voyage to the same place, found among
the natives some of Frobisher'a ore as
also black and red copper, and return
ed after search of many places with
hopes of discovering the desired passage
so that in 1587 he made a third voyage
to 72 degrees and 12 minutes,! wheTe the
compass varied to 82 degreesj westward
the laud he called Londou coast, and
there they found an opeu sea,' 40 leagues
between land and land which lie called
Fietutn Davis. (Davis straits.)
In 1610, Mr. Hudson proceeded 100
leagues further than any before had done,
and gave names to certain plaices; viz:
Desire, Provokes, Isles of Godmercie,
Prince Hcnrie's Cape, King James' Cape.
Queeu Ann's Cape, etc., but the ice hin
dered him from going further, ! and the
mutiny of his men from returning home.
In 1612 James Hall, and with him
T " V
William Baffin discovered; Cocking'sBavents separating fromlji
sound in latitude 65 degrees and 20 min
utes, which differed from London 60 de
grees and 30 minutes, where James Hall
was killed in a boat bva native 'pretend

ago, and ivhich takes its name j from its
resemblance to ice, aud it can like ice be

1. It is not said to be found any fwhere
elsq in the world, bnt there is there "an
immense vein of it, from which it is .said
iou,uuu tons can be obtained.-lu fact; as it
is believed to be a volcanic product, , and
tiie vein goes down to the centre of the
earth, the snpply is inexhaustible, though
the expense of working beyond a" certain
depth would be too great. The mine is
owned and the mineral is quarried 'out
by a firm in Philadelphia. if .
We saw a notice, a short time ago of a
shiplost at sea with a cargo of thison board
and also having, the crew of another ves
sel that had been previously lost on the
$roy to Philadelphia. - Sj rJ'

with it iron-stone, lead ore, copperas,

In 1615, Baffin was sent again; he found
Fair Point to differ from Loudon 74 de
grees and 5 minutes, and found that there
a i i
was no passage through Davis straits, it
being only a great bay. i
I626,f Baffiu went again, aud in Sir
Thomas Smith's sound, their compass
varied 56 degrees westward, but fiuding
no passage he returned home. ,
1553, Sir H. Willoughby, in his discov
ery of a North East passage, passed by . a
large country by tlte west side whereof
he sailed for some days, together, and
therefore it could not be a small islatid
as the Dutch makeut. We have nothing
of the voyage but those short notes which
were found lying on his table after his
death ; wnich M as that in August the 2d,
they parted from Seyuam ; August 14th,
they were 160 leagues north east of Sev
nam ; that they continued- sailing till
September 14tb, when they landed iu a
country, high, rocky, and uninhabited,
from whence the cold and ice forced them
to return more southerly; which thejr did
till they came to Arzina, a liver in Lap
land, where they were found next Spring
all frozen to death in the ship.

In 1556, Stephen Burrows searching a

sent forth to discover the north pole, who

here. His View was that every manl who
turned his face from the Democratic: or

aged and his desires fostered. sHo said
that the statements made by Democrats
that they were not afraid of the Liberal
movement, were false." The Democrats
had always played a game of blufif, the
ass in tho lion s skin, having no real
strength. Ho then went on to say that
parties in this convention had intimated
that they would bolt if the liberal move
ment were endorsed J He denounced such
a course, saying that the proper thing to
do was lift up the new party and its fol
J E O'Hara, colored, was the last speak
er, and he at once took up the liberal
movement, saving that it was assured
that the Republicans were determined to
stand on that platform, endorse aud back
it. He said that if at the next election the
yotes were counted as they were cast,victo
ry for the coalition movement was assur
ed. He 6a id ttiat all that was asked bv this
coalition was, that Democrats, Republi
cans, blacks and whites, should share
alike. He said that the Republicans held
the . Democrats, as a party, responsible
for the prohibition act, and demanded
they be held to such responsibility. 1
The committee eh credentials reported
through O J Spears. Their report showed
that most of the counties were represen
ted by regular delegates. The following
counties were not represented : Beaufort,
Clav, Durham, Gates, Graham, Hyde,
Martin, Pamlico, Pitt, Rockingham, Tyr

asserted that some of the delegates wro
The election of permanent officers of
the convention was then begun, it Igeiug
decided to elect by a vote of counties.
The followiug were put in nomination for
chairman ; James E Boyd, of Alamance ;
W A Moore, of Chowan ; W P Canaday,
of New Hanover ; John S Leary, of Cam
berUnd ; J C Dancy, of Edgecombe.
The names of Leary aud Dancy were af
terwards withdrawn. There was a long
and lively contest over the election, con
suming much time, but finally a Yotewas
The roll of counties was called, but be
fore any result was annouueed, there was
a regular lot of speeches. The votes of
several counties were changed by del
gates Craven county allowed only two
votes in tbe convention, claimed four
votes, and convention crew lively. Tho
executive committee, it was stated, had,
the evening before the convention, allow
ed Craven only two votes. A number of
delegates charged that this was a robbery
of representation, and that the new ap
portionment should not be used as a basis
of representation in the convention.
Franklin county raised a voice, claiming
that Craven ought to bo allowed only two
votes. At least twenty speeches were
made. . During all this time Judge Russell
wasin the chair, - Dr. Mott haying that
jost of honor and taken a seat where he
could watch the proceedings with a crafty
smile. The contest grew more and more
acrimonious, and finally Dr. Mott was
called on, and stated that his idea was
that the present representation, (two,)
should be the basis, allowing four votes.
The chair then left: the question of .'sus
taining him in his decision, that the
representation be given to those counties
on the basis of the uext General Assem
bly,: to the convention. There was here
more trouble, aud ; demands were made
that the matter be put to a vote by coun
ties. ..There was much recrimination,
and shouts of "dou't cive us anv craer
law;" The question as to whether the
chair should be sustained in his ruling
was then pot to a vote by counties,, when
by a vote of nays 134, ayes 56, it was de
cided that the chair should not bo sus
tained, and that the old basis of repre
sentation should bo adopted, and not the
new; apportionment. An hour and a half
was consumed in the discussion of this
one matter. The docission as to Craveu
carried with it tho matter of the repre
sentation of all the counties re-apportioned.

Then there was another hitch as to
Vance county, it being claimed ' that t
was entitled to a vote, but the chair ruled
that it was noC '

Just at this time the committee on plat
form and resolutions, through J C L Har
ris, reported the following :
The Republicans of North Carolina, in
convention assembled, renew the pledges
made in all former platforms and declare
as follows i
Resolved, That education is the bulwark
of American liberty ; that the constitu
tion of the United States requires the na
tional government to secure to each State
a Republican form of government; that
the amount of money as now collected
and disbursed by the State is greatly less
than is absolutely necessary to furnish
each child with a practical English edu
cation j therefore we favor the appropria
tion of the internal revenue tax on distill
ed spirits by Congress, pro rata, among
the several States and Territories, to the
full amount of money derived from this
source, and to be expended in ed oca ting
the children of our common country.
Resolved,. That sound policy, based up
on the experience of the past twenty-two
years, requires the continucuce of the tar
iff which enables the labor and capital
employed in our industries to compete
fairly in our own markets with the labor
and capital of foreign producers.
Metolved, That the present system of
county government is based upon the
monarchical principle of taxation without
representation, and is utterly 1 subversive
of the rights of the citizen, and should be
repealed. The iuherent right of the peo
ple to elect every officer clothed kith a
portion of the sovereignty of the State;
from the chief, executive to tbe humblest
official, must not be denied or abridged,;

resolutions, a resolution 1 eulogistio- of .

7 On the reading of these resolutions Mr,
T. B. Keorh ninrpd in atriL-n nnf tl.A
"five words of the concluding sentence of
