Now ,SIr, it has been shown that the
proposition to take the money from
the treasury for any purpose whatever,
except fr the purpose for which it was
collected is in violation of the Consti
tution of the State, which will appear
by referring to article 5th section 8 of
the Constitution which reads as follows
viz : every act of the General Assem
bly levying a tax, shall state the spe
cial object to which it is to be applied
and it shall be applied to no other pur
pose. Now, sir, thi bill proposes to take
from.the Public Treasury the tax mon
ey collected for a special purpose un
der the Revenue law of 1871 and loan
it out for a different purpose, In viola
tion of a plain provision of the Con
stitution of the State,
Mr. President, I will say in conclu
sion, that I hope the bill under consid
eration will not pass, and that no more
taxes will be imposed upon the people
of the State on account of railroads or
other corporations also, that no taxes
will be imposed for any purpose what
ever, except such as are absolutely nec
essary to support the State goverment

the taxes imposed and collected forthis
purpose will be disbursed with the

A Patent "Misrepresentation.
The Nation, very unjustly as will ap
pear, charges that "for some time a
lanre proportion of the fRepublican
nrnsw have been proclaiming that Gen-
.rn! ttmntrand nobodv else shall be
their candidate.,, So far as our obser
vntinn extends, this is not true in a
vino-iA ense. . The preferences of a ma
ioril v of the Republican press are strong

o-iv onlisted for the principles
ronnKpnts. nnd the m eas ures he has so
f.. i thf til 1v carried to success. That no
other candidate would be accepted by
tho press which supports him we em
phatically deny. Threats of this kind
are the peculiar tactics of the opposition
to Grant, ana oi ; uie oppu&muu .vmy.
There may be doubts as to whether The
v,f,vi Th Chicano Tribune. The Cin-
;t; chmmrmiaL or The Aeto lork
Evening Post would support Grant if he
were re-nominated for the Presidency
by the Republican National Conven
tion; but there is not a suspicion that
The New York Times, The Boston Ad
vertiser and Journal, The Cincinnati
anit ThCh icaao Even ina Post, and
a thousand Other warm supporters of
Grant, would not give in tneir cneenui
adhesion to the nomination of Trum
. bull, of Logan, of Summer, or of any
other tried and true Republican who
should receive the nomination of the
Convention. The same is true of the
statesmen Identified with Grant and
those who oppose him. If any predic
tions are expressed regarding the prom
inent men who may possibly bolt the
Republican nomination, the names in
volved are those of Schurz, of Summer,
or of Greeley. Those of Curtis, of Conk
ling, of Morton, of Howe, of Harlan, of
Vilson, or of Colfax are never thought
of in any such connection. The disor
ganizes and bolters are peculiarly the
opponents of Grant. So obvious a mis
representation, coming from Tlie Na
tion, is significant of the tactics even of,
the best of his opponents and traducers.

Snowballing I tub Duke. The

One ball knocked off his hat. One of

the country, when it did come the pop

The street boys on these rare occasions
were permitted by the police to do as

The Louisiana Political Situai

Just now there is a lull in the .sharp:
conflict going forward in Louisiana1 beV

aside somewhat, and the position" of
the combatants may be better discerned
than heretofore. We cannot say if they
both sides are alert enough, and netyherW

a hold upon the State Government. IFor
this is the aim of the Custom-bOasq
men and the State, or Warmoth, party
as well. The attempted capture of the)
Legislature was the apparent beginning
of the strife, though the antagonistic
elements had impinged upon each
other before the opening of the session
The arrest of Gov. Warmoth, Lieut-j
Gov. Pinchback; eighteen Represepta
tives and four Senators, by proice&i
from the United States Court, wa an
exact imitation of the tactics which; thd

legislature session is limited to sixty;
days, it is easy to see how a hostilej
majority could go home and leave the
hated Governor practically dangling
in the air. So, when the Geverpor,
and his friends were arrested by thef
Administration party! and thus tm-;
porarily hustled out of the way, jthe;
minority left behind were able to get
the House into possession, and, with
out a legal quorum, they unseated jsix

ThP nnwprful arm of the Federal Gov

fugitive Senators who defied the laws
until the Administration atf Washin

went up from the country, commanded
Casey to discharge the I fugacious Sena

ffed across the river into Mississippi,
where they now are.

Adminstration men, and they with
drew to a bar-room, where they ate
holding extraordinary j sessions of the
Legislature with one branch, amusing
themselves by passing harmless, un

There has been an infinite variety pf

just what we have thus briefly sketch ear

The Chairman, Mr. John W. Norwood,

humbug of broadclothery and looks to a

it hard, ere he pronounces him a farmer.

Departed this life, at hime, in Montgom
ery County, N. C, on the night of the 12th
of December, 1871, Miss
tom, daughter of James and Elizabeth Hal
torn, aged sixteen years.
She has passed away.
The death-fell de-
strover crent in among
the fair family
erouD. and with cold and icy hands seized
and carried on? to the dreary regions of'the
dead, one of its most precious jewels, amid
the moans and lamentations of her bereaved
parents and relatives,! and in spite of all
earthly devices. She is pass;d from the
mundane shores of time. Her .worthless
form sleeps in the dismijd old grave, near
the side of her once dear jbrother,who obey
ed the summons of the messenger of death
a few days before her departure. Peace be
to their ashes, while their immortal souls
are realizing the full fruition of unending
and undying eternity. She also reposes
near the graves of Her- dear mother and lit
tle brothers, (on the same plot of earth) who
passed away when she was a mere child.
And in the morn of the resurrection, ac
cording to Divine appointment, the mother,
brothers, sister, sons and daughter, , now
sleeping so silently in their graves will all
come forth at the sound of the trump in
pomp and glory, an be once more united
in the strong embrace of love, where part
ing is no more.
"The Lord gave and the Lord taketh
away, blessed be the name of the Lord."
Departed this life,' in Montgomery Coun
ty, N. C, on the 2d day of October, 1871,
Unis M., daughter of P, C. and Martha J.
Rileyi in the 14th year of her age, leaving a
large circle of relativesahd friends to mourn
their loss. But they do not mourn as those
who mourn without hope," she- giving satis
factory evidence of her acceptance' "With God
through Jesus Christ ; exhorting her friends
around her" bedside ! to prepare to
meet her in Heaven ; giving to her pious
father and mother all assurances that their
loss would be her eternal gain ; often ex
claiming but a few hours before she died,
" 0 1 how long before I shall see my-Jesus,
and reign with him aboye."
Many die as sudden, but few as safe. She
was a young lady of exemplary piety. Du
tiful to her parents, as a student, obedient
to her teacher, and loving and affectionate
to her class mates. J
Blessed are those who die in the Lord
they cease from their labors, and their works-
do follow them. ; j

44 What's in a name ?" j B ut little, we do
confess, and names are useless, save to de
signate and distinguish different objects;
therefore, as we seek anj existence among
things material, we shall call our paper

secondly, for the sovereign people, who do
know, that this fruitful land of ours is be
ing sowa with the seeds of thistles and

Everything seems to have been unhing
ed; the Oil of Mirth seems to have con
gealed, and cankered, and Every Body,
including the Children, wear a morose,
sour, vinegar visage, and it is our purpose
to apply an antidote for this moral curse
under which we groan, by causing a smile,
where wrinkled care now dwells, and roars
of laughter, in the place of growlings.
Every one will 44 bless our souls," as
they are made happy. The aged and the
young, will read our paper, and put it
down with the wish, that it were oftener
published and an hundred times double its
size. And why? Because its every line

sides of our people one and all 44 without
regard to color, or previous condition "
that is to say, we shall be so very clever, so
full of the milk of human kindness, that
tho whole human race may suck the teat,
and find nothing offensive, but grow kind
hearted, good-natured, and live down to a
happy and honorable old age.
We Know, will not forget, that in cor
recting the morals in some instances, the
sharp and keen knife of sarcasm must of
necessity be brought into use. - There are
horrible exceressences on the body, moral,
here and there, and they must come off;
the knife and chloroform will be used;
but, then, the operation once performed,
and we have a smooth path, which we will
keep hedged by the evergreens of wit and
humor, and the sweet roses of peace and
pleasure. To this end, we have the servi
ces, secured, of the best men in the State-
writers of every talent the wit, the hum
orest, and the more solid advisers.i Our

able originator j who now ' lives in our

if we reach that standard, we teel that we
shall please the public, and go swimming,
to the highest pinacle of prosperity.
To promise more, would be superfluous,
to promise less, would not entitle us to the
patronage of our people. -To perform what
we do promise will bo our aim, and we
