The Conserx atives pretend to have
gnat confidence in the people, and say
thnt the Republicans are afraid to trust
the iejple ' in calling a Convent
ticn. Let us wee rrom facts, which part
ty trasts the people most.
The Republicans say that the people
ought to elect Judges and Magistrates
for a short term of years so that popu
lar judgment may be frequently passed
ujMn ofiicial conduct.

Constitution so tliat Judges and Magis
trates may be elected for life by the
'iclature. ' 1 ! ' J . " - ;
The peoi)le are not politicians, and
will elect men for Judges who have es
tablkhcd a high 'character in the com
munity, and in' the legal profession for
h-arning, ability and integrity. ' They
will select the "best men to administer
justice; and determine the rights of the
people, and will ' not le controlled by
luirty cliques. ' ' '"'
The iieiiple don't, understand,, or ap
prove the dUhonest practice ' 6f leg
islative' Uxj-rollmg. . . ,
Legislature are controlled by politi
cians, and in that small and easily man
aged body, Judge and Magistrates will
be elected for party services and for the
purpose of perpetuating party owcr.
Let the people elect Judges and hold
them responsible for the right perfor-
macf-tluty, and we will have a wise
anOusu(liciary. The Republicans
believe tlmt tlTepeople are competent
to 'elect their own-Judges, and they,
therefore, oppose the. hiwyerarid pol
iticians' revolutionary CVmrention
which will deprive the loople of tliis
just and Inherent power.
The people , in a Lirge numler of the
States exercise this iower, and we can
not believe that the people of this State
will go back Ut the old, times when a
few aristocratic families control led all
the good offices of the State.
. The Republicans are not afraid to
trust the people, but they oppose the.
Convention because it is contrary to the
Constitution, , revolutionary, unneofs
sary, expensive, mid dangerous' to the
leace, Ulerty and prosperity of the
yUnder th old Constitution the Mag
istrates were appointed by the Legi.la
ture. The appointments verc generally
nuvitevin a frolic, but each .mem tier
tork i-are to appoint in his county such
men a; would b of service to him in
polities or in the county Courts.. In this
way counties were ruled by -cliques,
and the-political lawyers in the little
count v towns rulel theteopl ofi the
count v. A little town meeting would
be held and Esq. Tody would preside,
ami the lawyer who had him appointed
a Juxtiee was Kure( to be nominated.
Such Justices were appointed for lire,
and cared nothing for the people. They
were verv convenient thinnh cretcs and
with the old ca m and the jaN, they
could control the action oT many a poor
man .- ' . " -
Under the new Itepublk-an tinstitu-
tion these evils are done away, with
There are now no life Magistrates no
yi and 110 jail for poor debtors. Poor
men now go into their Homesteads, in
stead or the debtors jail ; their compan
ions are happy wives and children in
stead of felon. The people in their
townships can elect their good and hon
est neifrhljor for Magistrates, l and if
they get a bad - officer they, iean turn
him out at the next election. .Which
party trusts the people most ! The revo
lutionists want a Convention to restore
the old order of things, the old cliques
of "first families.". The Republicans
want a free and enlightened people
fully entrusted with the election of all
officers, and the maiiagement. of their
own affairs?. These are questions to be
decided by the people in the August
election. ' ! ' ' , '

PLAIN FACTS FOR THE COLORED PEbPLE
BY A COLORED MAN.
The last Legislature of North Caroli
na passed an act to' call a Convention
to change the present Constitution. We
all, as a general rule, understand J this
act to be unconstitutional, because the
a measure should pass vy a tico thirds
vote all the Members of each hottse of
the General Assembly ;but the pro slavery
Conservative party now in ; power, in
the General Assembly overlooked,! and
completely Ignored this provision,! be
lieving that through : the organization
known as the Ku Klux Klan, they can
carry a Convention in the .interest of
the slave power. The Republican party
liave;wisely agreed to go before J the
people and meet again race to face
these rraniersora newJiebellion.f: The
colored man logically, ,. belongs to! the
Republican party that party is his iite
blotxl, and it becomes his duty to look
well to its interests. ; -V -.' vi: . i :'l
The question that Northl Caroliiia l
colored men must consider iSj what ef
fect will this proposea .Conventron
have upon us ? In thcfirst place, that

will certainly provide that the Legisla-:

This is certainly a part of the pro
gramme of the prelavery Conserva
tive party, whose aim and objects to
deprive the colored men of the right
to vote, to hold office, to educate! his
childen, to hold property, and in fact
to take away his citizenship. 1
