A cciPENTLY Shot. On Friday, a Mr.

the store of Mr. Julius Lewis, on Fayette
villo street. He had been looking at a very
small single-barrel pistol. Mr. Nick West,
the efficient and j gentlemanly clerk, was
waiting on Mr. D. After the pistol lid
been examined Mr. D. turned oil and start
ed to some other part of the store, when the
pistol Went off in the hands of -Mr. West,
striking Mr. Dednam in the left side or ius
backU It seems that a cartridge had bejen
put iiv the pistol, of which Mr. West was
ignorant, and in letting the hammer down
the cartridge exploded. Drs. Royster auid
W. Hi McKee were called in, and the smf-
fereii was removed to the residence of Dr.
McKef -The bullet ranged downwardly,
and w are fearful that the wound isatal.
Mr. AVest is very much grieved that the ac-

Judge Heath was universally regarded
in North Carolina as one of the most emi-i
neut Judges that has at any time graced
our Bench. When charging a jury, or de-
cidiirjg points at .Nisi Prius, he presented
soinowhat the . appearance of a machine
constructed for the very purpoee of utterj

parently clear, and sufficient neither too
much 1 nor too little. The unflexible and
automatic tonea of his voice added; to the
impression. . With him, temptation to par
tiaUty or ordinary human weakness,
seemed out of the question. If such an
institution were to fail of its design, fit
could be ascribed to intellectual miscar
riage alone. No one could entertain! a
thought of any purpose upon the Judge's
part, except to pursue reasoning to its j le
gitimate conclusions. His ability to fdo
this was extraordinary, and his success un
surpassed. '' I

For the Carolina Era.
Iemtor Carolina Era : It did me good
to read vour first number. T like the tone
of the DaDer moderate but firm In the sup
port of Republican principles, decided and
fair in its opposition to the attempts to iorce
unon the people a Convention in a manner
not provided for by the Constitution, and,
in fact, revolutionary, Tor it oisregaras an
restaints put upon the will of a bare major
ity, and leaves the organized law, the very
foundation of all government, to depend
upon the caprice of the moment, so that
nothing is hereafter to pe treated as final
and settled ; and any party, when it happens
to get a majority vote, is to be considered as
having a right to call a Convention, and
change the Constitution to suit its peculiar
policy, and make room in the affairs of the
State for hungry expectants.
r Every one can see that such a state qi
things will not secure th object. of a good
government, and that t.'ie . re t iit Conven
tion movement, if carried out, ill result
in producii g ust that state of things.
i l suirtrest. however, for' consideration,
does not tho Em yield too much in putting
the whole issue upon the unconstitutional
and revolutionary mode in which it is pro
posed to call the Convention ? I
Many of our citizens, and I am one ql
them, do not think that the objections to
our present Constitution are so grave as
to justify the call of a Convention, if. it
cpull be tfone by a two-third vote of .the
: Many voted against tho adoption of the
Constitution because the Judges are elected
by the people for a term of years, thereby
octrnvinff tho inricneiidence of the Judi-
UVOUl V J M. wm-w X
ttnt as it has been adopted, it should
have a fair trial, and the objections to it are
not so potent as to justify a clamor for
change at this earlv day. and at the risk bf
- j- .
setting a bad precedent to bo followed when
the other partv happens to get a'majority
the other party happens to get a'majority
vote. .,!!'.-' ;. f j
j You will soe that in the enumeration of ;
supposed objections to the Constitution, set
out in the address of the Democratic Con
servative Executive . Committee, Messrs.
Bragg, Merrimon & Co., do not advocate
falling back upon the old Constitution in
this particular. Why? I venture to say
both of these gentlemen are opposed to this
provision, and yet they fear to say anything
about it. They object to the Township sys
tem, but propose no substitute. Are we to
go back to the old County Court system,
with Justices appointed by the Legislature
on the recommendation of the members of
the several counties, and an accumulation
of costs by appeals to the Superior Court,
with a double set of costs, and a petit j iiry
and grand jury at each of the four terms?
They make no comparison of Uio costs of
the two systems. j; - j I
; So in regard to other matters the people
are called on by a general 'clamor keeping
back some things that liave force in them,
and pressing some that have no real force,
but chime in with the feelings of the mo
ment to put the organic Law at the mercy
of a set of men eluded m these excited
... ....... -...'il
times, in other words to "go it bund."
The true policy according to my judg
ment is to "go slow and look betore you
lean'' save the cost of a Convention j by
taking time and making all needful amend
ments, by legislative enactments alter J the
particular change has been pointed out land
considered by the people and by two dif
ferent sets of Legislators. These matjters
do not 'belong to party, they concern all of
tljio people, a democrat may well vole
against a Convention, and a republican; for
one if such be their convictions as tothe
true interests of our beloved old State, j
; Politicians and the newspapers are try
ing to make it a party question. There is
not one man in ten who candidly believes
he ought Under present circumstances to
incur the expense and excitement incident
to a Convention. It remains to be seen
how far people can le carried by applying
tho party lash. . j.
