SpeechConstitutional Amend
Mr. .Editor: Strolling down street
yesterday,-1 was attracted to the court
house by some . means, and upon step
ping in for a very short time, I had the
f leasure of listening to a portion of Mr.
lughes' speech. And among .other
things, I understood him to say. that
unless we votedin favor of all the pro
posed amendments to the constitution,
we would loose all." In fact, he urged
it upoa the people to support no man
for the Legislature unless he . pledges
himself unequivocally to vote for all
the amendments as they now stand. I
am glad that he made that statement,
for if this be the case I am at no loss to
tike a stand. I am, and have been in
favor of some amendments to the con
stitution. But if there was no other
reason to justify me in opposing this
Bill, the following amendment would
bo all sufficient : 4 The General Assem
KWsrinil nmvidefor asvstemof county
Government for the several counties of
.the State." Now I look upon this as
placing the county governments in the
hands of the Legislature entirely, sub-
ject to De cnangea ami miemi w
the whims and caprice of every Legis
lature that convenes. This is entirely
too insecure, the people will not find
out what kind of government they have
got, before it may be changed to some
thing else, and besides it is no little ex
pense to tear up one system and estab
lish another. - , ...
When the township system was first,
talked of in this State, I had very seri
ous doubts as to its expediency. But
since we have tried them I am fully
persuaded that they are more econom
ical than the old system. 'And If I was
bitterly opposed to the township sys
tem, I would much rather submit to it
than create a new system, which to say
nothing of the expense incurred, would
have no stability about it. But I am
not surprised at the Democratic party
in making this attempt. ; A goodly
number of them are of the legal pro
fession and since we are developing a
cheap government, they are loosing in
jHxket. and the more changes they can
- i ik frvio Vioxr will rwMfPt..
And besides it is in keeping with their
old habits, to tear down more than they
can build up. '
Let us have the county governments
riecured by the constitution of the State
iu the same proportion that the State
governments are secured by the consti
tution of the United States, and then
" we wil 1 feel somewhat secure. It is not
the constitution they are so anxious
about, it's office to get into power.
But they'll find " Jordan a hard road
to travol." ...

Meeting iir McDowell.
On Friday, the 31st of May, the Re
publicans of McDowell county held at
old Fort one of. the largest and most
enthusiastic meetings ever held in the
county. There were over twelve hun
dred people present, and listened with
earnest attention to addresses delivered
by Col. William F. McKesson, of Burke,
and Col. Win. F. Henderson, of Lex
ington. - , it
To give even a synopsis of these gen
tlemen's addresses would swell this
communication to inconvenient length ;
let it therefore, suffice to say, that two
more effective addresses have scarcely
ever been delivered in this section of
the State. ' . , :

To the Public. .
Having heretofore acted with the
tv ,f.. i lnrt this mpthod
of informing the public that I have
severed all connection with that party,
and- announce myself a Republican
and as such, I will use all honorable
means, to secure the election of the
National and State Republican tickets.
Believing that as a laboring man I
have been acting with a party hostile
to the interests of the laboring men of
the Nation, I hope others will do as I
nave done. ,wr,r

Thealwve Senatorial District, com
liused of the counties of Greene and
lxnoir, met in Convention at Kinston
Saturday last, and nominated'Hon. R.
W. King to represent them In the next
I'ishiture. 'This is as it should be
the reward of a faithful-and honest
servant ; for it was alone due to the ef
forts ami iniluencc of Mr. King that the
apportionment of the 11th District was
made to compose the counties of Lenoir
and Greene instead of Duplin and
Lenoir, as the Conservatives originally
designed iU Had the latter prevailed,
included in another
District, then neither Lenoir nor Greene j
but as it stands, they have a voice In
the State Senate. With the name of
Senator King on the State ticket, it
will be strengthened, and the interest
of his. constituents will be guarded,
while the Republican party will show
its wisdom In the selection of such men
-whose character for honesty and con
scientiousness Is commended by those
of the opposite pariy. Ve bespeak ft

David 31. Furclies, Esq.
. It s with more than ordinary satis
faction that we this week place in our
electorial column the name of David
M. Furches, Esq.;' the' nominee" jof the
Republicans of the Seventh District as
a candidate for a seat in the next Con
gress. ' The more so, " that Mr. Furches
is a citizen of Iredell, which county has
been honored by a choice having been
made of one of -her citizens, his excel
lent qualifications and great moral
worth, his well-known devotion to all
public and private trusts, and the fact
that a gentleman more . worthy j of the
confidence of all the people does not
exist in the State.' " .' ' . V
Mr. Furches is not, and never ;was, a
politician by trade, and therefore, is
unlike his opponent, who is a profes
sional " in that line, . ' f
Mr. Furches in former days, co-operated
with the Whig rarty, and while
a resident of Davie, served his fellow
citizens a few times in the State; Legis
lature, with usefulness to them and
honor to himself. Then, as now, the
people conferred office upon him, un
sought, and public .confidence was re
warded by faithful services. -!
The people of Iredell, . who are so
well acquainted with . Mr. Furches and
his well-known record and purity, of
character, , eminent qualifications for
the position, ahd citizenship,' have
more than an ordinary interest: in his
success, and, laying aside considera
tions of a party tendency it is hoped
and believed that they will give him
their support. It has been many years
since a citizen of Iredell was a mem
ber of Congress, in the person of Hon.
Joseph P. Caldwell; an honor that the
county should strive for again, and now
when the opportunity i3 offered,' , ,
If elected, Mr. Furcb es has a record
that will command art influence with
the party in power, and although a
Republican, his sentiments are or the
Liberal kind, and his influence would
be used for. the best interest of North
Carolina in all rrespects. : Nono ; that
know him will doubt this. . -j
: The Democratic candidate , for , .Con
gressional honors, Maj. Robbins, if he
could be elected, would command no
influence at Washington, and tq all in
terests and purposes the District! would
be unrepresented. Statesville 'Ameri-

We see it stated in the Democratfc
papers that this gentleman will not be
a candidate on the Republican ticket
for Congress from this District ;in ton
sequence of the nomination by . the
i wrvmi4 nf such a worthy man as
the Hon. Thomas S. Ashe. Now, we
look upon Mr. Ashe as a perfect gen
tleman and a good man, and we have
no doubt that he would make a siuta?
ble representative of his party ; bnt he
is not the kind of men whose services
are needed just now in j the Legislative
Halls of the Nation.) We need the
services of such men as Col. Dockery
men who can do something for us
whose voice, j when they speak! for us,
will be heard, and who did not take
such an active party in! the struggle for
the destruction of the (Union, and the
fcubversion of civil liberty on this con
tinent, i I ' I ' I
Possibly the time may come we
think it will when it ,will do to place
the affairs of the country in the hands
of such men as Mr. Ashe. ' But until
that time arrives, and they, shall have
their bitter prejudices worn away by
time and brought forth food meet for
repentance, we think it best ; to let the
leaders in the late Rebellion -remain
on the shelf, where they were5, placed
by the result of the war in 1S65.
We have not seen or heard from Col.
Dockery since reading the announce
ment that he would pot be a candidate,'
but we feel warranted in saying, that
when the Republican Convention
meets he will receive the nomination
that he will .accept it and be trium
phantly elected. Mr. j Ashe and his
friends to the contrary notwithstand
