and cannot receive the sanction of pro
per thinking men.- This is the strong
est evidence on the parffcf the leaders,
of the so-called Democratic party, that
freedom of thought and action is to be
suppressed; that men are not to be
allowed to think and act for themselves
at the hazard of being calumniated and
charged with. selling their principles.
Did the Old Line Whigs and Democrats
sell themselves to secession, when
they voted for a candidate of that
stripe? If they did, what was the
price paid? They know what they
cot! We well know what they fee
when the blood mounts to the cheeks,
and indignation at so foul an imputa
tion, flushes from the eyes of these gen
uine lovers of Union and political hon
esty, educated in the schools of Henry
Clav and Andrew Jackson.
When The American has co-ejenittxl
with the leaders of any party, we made
no sale or transier to them or our prin
ciples, but claimed the privilege tqsev
er the alliance at any time. This, we
take it, is likewise the line of conduct
which every old Whig and Democrat
in the state claims the right to pursue,
if they shall. deem proper. And who
will dare sit in f udement unon them
- for so doing? Do the people oelong to
the politicians, that they shall not
think, act and vote as they like? If
they do. we have never seen the bill
of sale, bv which the DeoDle have vol
untarily deprived themselves of their
liberties, ana we pray uol.we never
may behold the parchment, with its
red lines and broaq seal for it will be
written in blood!
To pursue this subject a little fur
ther: If the old Whlcs and old Dem
ocrats, which the leaders of the present
so-called Democratic party of the State
claim to control, are to be transferred
to some other party, will they not like
to have a voice In the matter, and
learn the terms upon which they are
to be so transferred? The netc Demo
cratic party of the State have no na
tionality, ana must look to some other
faction or fraction of a party, North, to
even obtain a respectable minority by
alliance; in doing which, it is reason
able to suppose that they will be re
duired to surrender a portion, at least,
of their Southern principles, and ac
cept such terms as may be proposed to
them. Will the old Whigs and Dem
ocrats be willing to be thus dealt by?
or will -thev not rather choose for
themselves their party allies? This
freedom of choice lies at the very bot
tom of civil liberty, and is as antagon
istic to nartv tyranny as anything can
be. It is useless for. men to talk against
tvmnnv. while thev are endeavoring
in ri vpfc thft adamantine shackles of

Empire takes its way. .Those living on
hundred years from to-day will behold that
Hxrtion of this Union known as the Great
West, as thickly settled as the. State of New
York. To a very great exUnt the beauties
of nature will have "disappeared beneath the
progressive and never-tiring arm of the pale
face. . "- . ; j '
tt ia; in this connection, that the Congress
has before it a bill forever setting apart
what is known as the Yellow Stone Yaller
in Montana juia H,yonung,iwini,
tmct of land some fiftr- miles square, aa
National Park. This bill should pass at
once. The project Is worthy of the support
of all men who desire to retain a small por
tion of terra firma in its original simplicity.
Civilization is stripping away the romantie
and beautiful disguises of nature, at a rate
terrible to contemplate. -When we turn
our thoughts to the rapid strtaes whico
have been made in settling and developing
the Great West, it is not difficult to Imagine
the time when the whistle of the iron horse.
w hnzz of the steam mill, the rumble of
the foundry, or some other modern device
devoted to the unpoetlcal purposes of com
merce and manufacture, will be heard in
almost every one of the magnificent valleys
and upon everv prominent hill of the- iana
which is now a wilderness and a standing
monument of the greatness of Nature's
God, and conclusive evidence to every
mind that there is a Creator a Maker of all
thins--God Almighty And the wilderness
of Nature will be banished from the face of
the earth until the trumpet of the Arch-Angel
Gabriel shall summon the quick and
the dead to the bar of God for the jmdgment
of the Last Day. Therefore, to preserve
something in m the primeval wilderness,
where men may go to commune with the
natural, unamazed by the presence ol the
artificial, it is as necessary as it is wise.that
the Congress, should set apart from our vast
public domain abounding in sublimity ad
beauty, a tract of. land for a National Park.
Such a tract is the Yellow Stone
Valley. A National Park among the Rocky
Mountains ! Think of it! Surely, a project
of this kind will meet with no opposition.
Uprising in the Penitentiary Thk
Guard Attack and one Wounded One
Convict Killed and two Wounded.
For several days the convicts confined in
the Penitentiary have been confined in their
cells. The refusal of the Legislative Board
to surrender to the Board appointed by
Gov! Caldwell, and funds for the support of
the Institutiom being iu the hands of the
Caldwell Board, the prisoners were put upon
half rations andwork suspended. Each
cell contains fifteen prisoners and are exam
ined by the overseers in the evening when
supper is taken in.
Last Thursday evening, Mr. McAllister
one of the Overseers, on entering one of the
celLvwas attacked by the prisoners con-
fl nAd in that cell and disarmed. Mr. liemp
another Overseer seeing that Mr. McAllis
ter had been disarmed, rushed to bis assis
tance. He was seized, thrown down and
shot at, the ball missed him and struck a
convict by the name of Larkins in the
thigh. About this time the regular guard
were attracted by the disturbance and the
firing of guns. They proceeded to the cell
in questiqn, whereupon the prisoners re
tired to the cell. Mr. Penny, one of the
officers, demanded the arms taken from Mc
Allister and Kemp. Immediately the con
victs fired, striking Mr. Penny in the arm,
causing a painful, but not serious wound.
In turn, the guardfired Willis Hartsfield,
a Convict from Edgecombe, was killed.
Two othor convicts were wounded and the
remainder surrendered and gave up the
arms taken from McAllister and Kemp.
This is the first uprising which has oc
curred" In the Penitentiary. It" is to be
hoped the lesson afforded by the killing of
Hartsfield, will deter the convicts from a
similar attempt. . ' .
We are informed that the convicts are on
full rations. -
There is an old saying, which runneth
somewhat after this wise : Persons who de
part from the truth, should have good
In the News of Friday we find the folio w
ing: " Died. At the Penitentiary, from star

set apart by law to feed him. -

find the following paragraph, a portion, of

"We deem it due justice to all parties con
cerned to state that the result was in no
wise caused by the differences pending on
the outside which is unknown to the con
victs, but what would naturally have occur
red at any time. The convicts are on full
rations and ifls not even probable now that
the necessity will occur to reduce them."

leave a discriminating public to say how
much confidence they can afford te have in
anything the News may hereafter say.
Ku Klux 'Act. On Tuesday last, an im
portant caso,upon which turns the con
stitutionality ol the Ku Klux Act, was De
fore the U. S. Supreme Court for argument.
The points upon which the Court will be
called upon to decide are as follows : First,
as to whether or not, under the enforcement
law of May 31, 1870, persons can be pun
ished for committing a crime defined under
the laws of the State; and, second, as to
whether or not the right to bear arms is a
ritrht cuaranteed by the Constitution, and
to be protected under the enforcement act
This will substantially test the validity or.
the act in auestidif. and decide " whethej .
criminals shall be punished for violating ;
this law the same as those. mat are puniscea
under the State law. Reverdy Johnson
and Henry Stanbery, will argue against the
the Government, while Attorney-General
Williams will have charge of the other side.
E. 8. Since the above was put In "type,
thtk AttAmev-General entered a plea to the
jurisdiction; upon which the Court dis-
missed the case.

Democrats take usaVb owit Fob-

public meetings held inC Alexander and

the Xormer county and John JL. Chamber
lain of .the latter, both, active anembers of
the Legislature and elected by; the Demo
cratic party, have renounced the Kuklux
Democracy and taken open and bold ground
for the Republican party. Both' these gen
tlemen are leading men and will greatly
increase the. Republican vote of their coun
ties. . , ' ".Jx "-'.'
Dr. Carson commands the respect and
confidence of both parties. He is safe and
reliable. His accession. to the Republican
party Js a great gain in the West. ,
Of Mr. Chamberlain, the Elizabeth City
North Carolinian says : '
"Still ilfey come recruits to the great
Republican party. On Friday last Hon.
John, L. Chamberlain, late Conservative
Representative from Camden, addressed a
Republican meeting of that county and un
equivocally declared himself in favOr of the
rmrtv of Prooress. of Justice, of Peace and

ability and wields u great influence. Well

The St atesviltlh American. The
anxiesy of the Ku Klux Democracy as to

that the Republican party throughout the
West will be greatly increased by the wise

our defeat in 1870, have passed away, It
