A few minutes after 12 o'clock Messrs.
Hancock and Abbott, chairmen of the
factions heretofore existing iu the coun
ty, filtered Ihe convention which bad
assembled in the court house and called
the mee ting to order. After considerable
effort the bur was cleared and the dele
gates and alternates roipiested to come
in as their names were called. During
the call the old feeling between the two
factions showed itself, and at times was
upoa the verge of bursting forth wit 1
ail of its former furv.
The delegates being seated Jlr. Han
cock arose and add ressed them at length,
and in our humble opinion enunciated
doctrine that svjll unite the Democratic
party and roll up the old majority of
ltwfi. He referred to the 'Miserable
Supreme Court" that had declared the
Civil Rights bill unconstitutional, and
said that the mission of the Republican
party would not end until they had
made a constitution that guaranteed
"Ciwl Right." He said it was the
mean, low prejudice that the Democrats
had against the negro, that caused them
to e-tablish and maintain the present
system of county government.
Mr. Abbott followed him and said lie
endorsed all I'apt. Hancock's speech
but that part in which he abused the
Democrats. He said the Republicans
mu.-l beat th" Democrats but they could
not afford to abuse them. His remarks
we-r moderate and in good tust".
X iiv for the temporary chairman.
Another storm breaks loose and every
body is whooping aial snouting and mak
ing motions, while both the chairmen
are on their feet. Finally 1". R. Dudley
is made temporary chairman an 1 ('. E.
How to appoint the committee on
credentials raised another breeze.
Ther were contested seat- by delegates
from the 'th ward and s .nc other pre
cinct, and some of the delegates
wanted to n Here the chairman of
the 1 esponsibility of appointing
the committee to settle so important a
matter. The chair, however, did ap
poii t the committee, also one on resolu
tion . an. I one on permaia nt organiza
tion. The convention then adjourned
to the theatre, where speeches wa re
made by Huns. O'Hara and Hubbs and
Geo. H . White and I.. J. Moore. Esq.
Ti.c committee on permanent or
ganaiatiou reported Mr. Isreal Abbott
for permanent chairman and C. E.

A (jiREAT EXPOSITION
To be Held Iu North Carolina It Im
portance to Baltimore merchant.
s;,e,'ia! Correspondence of The American.
Balf.igii, N. C, April 15.
North Carolina has an area more
than tire times that of Massachu
setts, within which are minerals
and timbers surpassing in number,
variety and economic, value those
to be found in any other territory
of equal extent on this continent,
and perhaps in the entire world.
Situated on the border between
the temperate and semi-tropical
States, her agricultural products
are as varied as her natural re
sources. In her mountains and
their foothills are nearly every
mineral for which human ingenuity
has lound a use; her forests are
vast preservers of magnificent
timber of all species growing east
of the liocky Mountains; her soil
produces cotton, rice, tobacco, all
the small grains, most of the fruits
and vegetables of the temperate
and semi-tropical regions; her pas
tures and mountain slopes aflord
the best of ranges for sheep and
beef cattle; her rivers and sounds
teem with fish and wild fowl. A
State thus richly endowed should
be populous, prosperous and pro
gressive. That North Carolina has
not attained the high tce she is
destined to hold in the Union is
due to many causes, but principally
to the fact that the people inherited
from their English, Scotch, Irish
and Pennsylvania Dutch ancestry a
conservative spirit that made them
follow in the footsteps of their
fathers, perfectly satisfied with the
old paths, and looking upon modern
ideas as dangerous innovations.
Agriculture was the chief pursuit of
the many trade and commerce of
the lesv. Since 1805 the
CHANGED CONDITION OF AFFAIRS
has forced the people of the Old
North State to see everything in a
new light. They have opened their
eves to the vastuess of their inherit
ance, and are striving in good
earnest to avail themselves of their
advantages. The first public mani
festations of this was the creation
by legislative enactment of the
State. Department of Agriculture
an efficient organtzatijTrjcompris
irrg the subordinate TjTTreaTisof ag
ricultural chemistry, miueralogy,
eniijrration and the fisheries. This
department performs the two fold
work of informing the citizens of
North Carolina ou all matters re
lating to agriculture, mines, forests
and fisheries, and of disseminating!
among the people of other States
and of Europe such information as
svill attract investments of capital
and permanent settlers. By two
exhibitions one at Atlanta in
1881; the other at Boston last fall
und by the distribution of numerous
publications, the department has
already given the State and its re
sources a publicity that has drawn
to it hundreds of new citizens, and
a very large addition to its vested
Following in the same direction,
public spirited citizens have organ
ized au exposition company for the
purpose of holding
A GBEAT STATE FA IE
at Iialeigh next October. Although
the preparatory work has scarcely
got well under way, it is already
apparent that this exhibition will
surpass any ever held by an Ameri
can commonwealth. The Board of
Agriculture svill make a display
much greater than that which as
tonished New Englanders last sea
son, and this will be supplemented
by the counties, which have appro
priated money and appointed com
missioners to collect and arrange
their respective exhibits. What
ever is produced by human skill or
found in the forests, the mountains,
the rivers find the sounds that has
au economic value will be collected
and classified, that whosoever may
be interested in any particular ex
hibit may learn fully all about it.
It is not 'expected that this expo
sition svill directly repay its cost.
The men who subscribed for its
stock did so because they thought
the time had arrived for citizens to
unite with the State authorities in
making a complete illustration of
the undeveloped wealth and tho
immense possibilities of this great
com m-cui wealth. The site selected
for the exposition is at the Fair
Grounds, a short distance from this
city. Extensive buildings, of neat
design, fire to be built by the cor
poration, and by several of the
counties for their own use. The
