IIALKIGH, AUGUST :i. 1871.
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO VOTERS.
Every man entitled to vote in the Conven
tion election, must vote in the Township
where he reside.
. He must be registered on the registration
books of his Township before he can vote.
He must have resided ten days before the
election in his Township.
Jle must vote a separate ticket for Conven
tion or No Convention, and he must vote a
xerxirate ticket for the candidate or candl
dates, and those tickets mast bo put In sep
arate boxes. !
It is a mistake that the voter must have
resided ninety days in his Township before
lie can vote. Ten day s is all that is requires
by law. It is only In some municipal elec
tions that a ninety days residence is re
quired. - I

8 o'clock on last Sunday night. The loss
consisted of nine head of horses and mules
and a large quantity of small grain that was

is unknown, but there is little doubt but
that is was incendiary.

felons has a tendency to demoralize, ; ratner

the following paragraph :

men determined that if one man had been
killed, they would have hung Gen. Willie
D. Jones and Philemon J. Hawkins,) who

but in tho political meeting." j ;
Then, it is confessed that neither Mr.
Jones or Mr. Hawkins had anything to do
with the alleged disorder they were exer
cising the rights of freemen, in a peaceable
wav vet. it was decided, and determined,
if a man had been killed, that Gen. jones
and Gen. Hawkins, were to have been hung.
Wo call u uon tho people of . orth Caroli

The Goldsboro Troubles. The at
tempt on the part of tho Sentinel to make

the character of that paper. The extra sent
out by it Saturday afternoon, was . headed
White men to the front ! and the whole tennor
of the extra was calculated to engender a
bitterness to-wards the Republican party
and the colored people, in particular. We
have seen gentlemen who were present, ana
they tell us that polities had nothing to do
with thq affair that the difficulty was the
result of bad whiskey, and that it was con
fined to the colored men. It is true one
man was sliot ; he was shot by a colored po
lieceman; I I
Where a mischievous sensation article,
like the one spoken of, is so liable, and so
sure to be exploded, we wonder that sensible
men should venture to use it at all. j

misrepresentations made, and they have
borne personal abuse and vituperation with

NEWS FROM THE WEST fcETTEfc TkXm
J ASHEVILLE, N. C. '
Mr, Editor: I have just returned
from an extended trip through the five
extreme Western counties. Our friends
are rallied and! thoroughly ; aroused.1
The canvass made by W. O:'. Candler
in these counties has had a telling ef
fect. In Cherokee the anti-Conven-ists
are well organized. Burton Dickey,
the Conservative member of the pres
ent Legislature, is stumping the county
against Convention; and is doing great
gpod. Capt. Hays, a prominent Con
servative, is the candidate against Con-;
vention in Cherokee ; county. He is a
sbnofthe latOHon. Geo. W. Hayes,
who wasfor many years a member of
the Legislature. John Rolen his
brother-in-law, is the revolutionary
candidate. The Conservatives give up
ae county of Cherokee by two hundred
by over three hundred.,,- ! -In
Clay county, Capt. G. M. Bristol,
life-long Democrat, is the candidate
inst Convention, ana nas no opposi-
n. it is tnougni. tnai ine county win
te nearly unan imous against Conven-
on. . . . . ,
In Slacon and Jackson counties, it is
ought by both. Republicans and Con
rvatives, that in the former county,
e maiorit v will be crreatiy reaucea :
ahd in the latter it is claimed by both
parties. . ' . - -J, '- ; : "
In Haywood county, the vote will be
dose. Both parties claim a majority.
C9I. Joseph Cathey is the Convention
candidate, and A. J. Murray, the pres
ent popular Sheriff of the county, is tho
anti-Con ventioa candidate.
It ' is confidently effected that Con
vention will be badly defeated in this
Congressional District. The Conserva
tives offer to bet that the majority
against Convention ; will not exceed
that of the Presidential election in
1868. We will send up a good report
next Thursday. :
The West. '
I AsheviUe,'N. C, July 29, 1871, ;i ;
T. F. Lee, Shebifk. The bitterness with ;
which the Sentinel daily attacks our Sheriff,
proves beyond a doubt, that he, Lee, is do
ing his whole duty to his country, and that
the biows dealt by him against revolution
and lawlessness, are heavy, and are telling
on the ranks of the Ku Klux and their apol
ogists. .To read the Sentinel, a stranger
would infer that Tim was a candidate before
the people,in opposition to Convention,when
in truth, he is not a candidate, but an active
canvasser against Convention, and tho peo
ple having tried him, and found him true,
heed his words of counsel,in this campaign ;
he tells them, in his own way, of the deep-
laid plans of certain political jockies he
warns the people to beware of these men
upon whose tongue deceit and misrep
resentation, like oil, runs off. v '
But, what need Tim care for tho Sentinel,
and the little pack who snap at him. lie
can afford to laugh at them now, and to pity
them when the day of their calamity is full
upon them. ..:
Peaceable; tjnto the end. Soon, the
present heated campaign will close. That
there has been, and now exists cause suf
ficient for excitement cannot be denied; and
still,argument,reason and facts have been the
weaponsj on the side of the No Con
vention party, while, on the part of the
Revolutionists, Demagogulsm, misrepre
sentation, ridicule and personalites, have
been the weapons brought into action
and even, unto the end of this unnatural
warfare, the lovers of law and liberty, have
maintained a marked dignity, with the
conscious belief, that, being right, their de
liverance from anarchy and confusion, was
but a question of time. The winding up,
on the 3rd day of August, will prove how
true has been the calculations of the lte-
publican party. I TFe wait with an'abiding
confidence in the justness of tne cause we
have espoused, for the result. Let our
