The Conspiracy JKxposcd.
t It has transpired within tho last few
days, that one of the schemes of tho
convention-ploUcrs is to establish in
North Carolina, a system of ri'ru rwe
voting, the same eystem that ibrmcf-
y revailed in rirgtnia, Kentocky arid
pcrhaj Isomc otbent ot the Southern'
states. In o'het 'words, those who are
entitled tjo the suffrage, instead of vot
ing by bsil lot as they' are now' permit
ted by lajw to do,' will be obliged to tel
the judges of election tbo'Oucs for
whom they role, so that all bystanders
1 - 1 . 1 s. . r
may near, auu uio tow ho given is to
be entered into a boolHctpt by the poll-
holders, so the same may be inspected
The purpose of this infamous prop
osition is apparent. By tho system of
voting ov uauoi, me pmren can cnoose
his -Candidate and no one but himself
can know who tho person may be. In
this manner the voter is protected from
prying curiosity, auu can givo bis un
biaased suffrage without fear of.TCaultA
That is. he is absolutely free trom out-
i Jo iuUueuces. But if tho rira voce
system is adopted, many a man, hot
having the moral courage to act nide-
iHjndently of outside interference, will
either vote contrary to his inclination,
or will not try to givp expression to his
choice at all. It is One of the most
oucnsive restrictions tliat can be im-
posed upon freedom of action, and
places many men (such is their natural
timidity of disiosition,) within the
jtower of those who have stronger
The first application of the rira rocr
plan is to be made when the amended
constitution is submitted to the people
for ratihcation or rejection. Ihe con
vention bill provides as follows: "Nor
shall said convention pass any ordinan
ces legislative 111 their character, ex
cept such as are necessary to submit
the amended constitution to the people
for their ratihcation or rejection, or to
convene the tcneral Assembly.
- . . . . . . ? , . ..
'llic plot is simply this : The Legis
iturc that passed the convention bill
is to be a,rain called together: and by
the tcrtns of the law, the convention, if
it has a majority of democrats, will sub
mit the question to the people. But
ho'.v? TJje voters will be required to
come before the poll-holders and sneak
out how they wish to vote, instead of
casting a secret ballot as they. now uo.
In addition to thi, tlm convention will
require voters to produce- their tax
receipts belorc they can vote at all.
By these appliances, thousands of citi
zens will be prevented from giving ex
pression to their freewill, and the "sub
mission to the people" will become a
ree. This plan bus been seriously
licu.fic.d by the leading conventioii
dollerls. and its adottion agreed upon.
Tho jotily method by w hich it can be
lefeatexl is to elect delegates to the
convention who are opposed to amend
ing thq constitution, and who will ad
journ the convention so soon as it shall
assemble, the people should not de
lude thk'insclvcs by supposing they can
rote ddwu an amended constitution il
it does not suit them, lor it maybe
many 1 1 them will nave no opioriiiy,
but tlujL one now presented, to vote at
ill. IVt them lie warned in time,
A.-f Xhiih .y.f. .
Another Falsehood is being told to
prevent coloied men Irom voting, to the
elicit thai they will bo obliged to pay
their jkI1 tax before voting at this elcc
tii.i. This is living induilriously cir
etilatei, but we would say to tbacolor
ei folks there is not a won! of truth ill
it, and they ought not b allow'thcin
bvlves to be deceived. It the democrala
amend .lhe constitution, however, they
will put this in, and after the present
election, uulcssthe republicans succeed,
it may le the law, that no matt ran
vote unless he produces his tax-receipt.
The. .Wilmington (N. C.) W calls at
Untio i to the fuel that twrcnty-hvc of
the uiembera oi the couvcutiott of 1W1
tliat look North Carolina out of the
Union are caudidaU-s for the cut ca
tion of lT'i, besides the ex-t Vnifeslcrate
?U-tl4- Attorney tiviieral. It should be
reiaemlierrd that these men itt ldl
pretended to lie lovt-rs of the Union.
They pretend now that the State Bights
issue is dead. What can reasonably be
exported of them c&crpt a repetition of
their former treachery if they shall un
fortunately get omtral of the conreo
lion? W'ttitsn-ftom RQubttfli. .
A vitc for the anli-cnarentiAn can
di.Lilra is a vote agaitfl saddling aa
rnrutouj debt upon the peofde.
If you do not wth to be boon. I hand
auj fH ly Ihearmeinee and dicta
tno of the old-time "ra'ing cUmsea,
vote against ronvenUan.

That brazen renegade, Glenn, of Yad-1
kin, after having betraved the Unjon f
men of Yadkin twho elected him, ii
now stumping' for the DemocraLs. litis
Is the way Dr. Cook of Wilkes took '
him down at Yadkinvillo last Friday :
"Gleifn, tho Lieutenant (fovernor, so
called, wrote Mr. Myers, of Yadkin, a
few days before ho betrayed his ; party.
In this letter ho said tho Democrats
wera thieves and were stealing tho peo
ple's money. "Now," said Dr. Cook in
his reply to Glenn, "too Lieutenant
Governor aays lie wast the whipping
post, and be says thai when thieves arc .
convicted, yw should take them out
and cuktheir infernal hides.' Thia was
Glenn's exact language. Now he says
the Democrats are thieves one day and
the next day he is found in the den of
thieyes. What did be, go there for?
Wa4 it to partake ol the plunder?
Was it to gel the benefit of the stealing?
If stjj, who will 'cut kisiafemal hide?7"
Have not Democratic lawyers tried
to have tho 'Homestead law declared
unconstitutional? It is certain that
they have, and it is known that Judge
Merrimon, who is now slumping the
State in the interest of tho Democratic
party, was untiring in hiscitorts to hare
Ibis great outrage commuted.
