A feeling of doubt and uncertainty
as to the future, exists in-North Cam-

est circumstance will be seized upon, as
foreboding evil, by the sober 'steady

and deplore tho lossof ravaged and des

The trivial coincidence of the month
and elay of the -proposed' Convention
election with certain other inauspicious
days and months in the dark period of
bloodshed, crime, and overthrow of
political relations ami institutions;' in
augurated with as fair promises as sire
made in this-same month ten

will be remembered aisotnat tne very

ed 'election is to be held, the anni

Tho dread of being deprived of the
protection of the homestead clause in
the present Constitution iwill create a
deep feeling of anxiety and interest
among the people, ana -conirioute t
exasperate and heighten the general
excitement beyond that which , wc
might expect in ordinary elections.
The fear that the army of creditors
whose claims have been excluded : by
the holding of the present Supreme
Court, will be precipitatad upon the
helpless. and impoverished debtors in
the State, now protected by that dec is
ion, coupled with the fact that ihe
present act does not restrict tho -proposed
Convention from -abolishing tlie
constitutional exemption from impris
onment for debt, will seriously agitato
the minds of the poorer classes of our
people both white and colored. The
former will regard the homestead "allot
ted, to them by law as put in jeopardy,
if not probably lost, bv submitting to a
call of a Convention. The latter, who
labor upon our farms, in our elomestic
service, and upon our public works,
may suspect that a Convention, unre
stricted as to its power to establish -.the
old ca. st. system of imprisonment for
debts, will leave open a door to intro
duce that or a system of peonage like
that in Mexico, where, although their
Constitution guarantees liberty to ev
ery citizen, by their mexle of enforcing
de'lits every farm or house servant is
liable to become practically a slave.
