S:PT. 12, 18G7.
Thi Radical Coayention (so-called)
met ia Raleigh oa Wednesday last, and
iHflf an exhibition of the most bitter,
vindictive and malevolent spirit to
wards a large majority of the people of
North Carolina, adjourned on Thur3
day night, thus relieving the Capital of
the State from the deadly incubus
resting upon it for two days.
It was tae most disgraceful and dis
orderly political assembly ever congre
gated togcthef ibefore and the atrocious
seuwiuuucs cltuucuucu uy many oi me

speakers, both white and black, would
better suit a pandemonium of lost
spirits, than a convention called for
the ajijKirent purpose of discussing the
political issues of the day. The pres
ence of a few hitherto respectable
white men ,bn made the contrast more
vivid, aftd the complete overthrow of
theTr faint exertions iu favor of moder
ate sentiments but displayed in more
odious colors the devilish feelings ac
tuating the great body of mean white
aad negroes there assembled.
Not a redeetnins act marked the
whole course of the proceedings, and
at the same time a blow has been struck
at a speedy reconstruction which will
require a bag time to heal.
We have neither time nor inclina
tijn to notice at length the various pro
positions introduced, all tending to one
common result, the complete annihila
tion of a white man's government, and
the substitution of a debased, ignorant
negro rule, but simply refer, as exam
fle, to the action taken upon the reso
lution introduced, opposing the confis
cation of private property for political
.offences, which teas voted down, and a
-substitute adopted, leaving the subject
of confiscation in the hands of Con-
says, " the ne-
grocs drunken with unholy and un
enable ambition were almost a uuit,
we understand, in behalf of confisca
tion, and though the bastard freemen
iions, it was only done in the hope that
thp. cTAnprnl 5il.n PTnrnssp.il in tlm slmnfi
e , r r
of accepting the congressional plau,
would operate as intimidating machine
ry with anti-republicans."
Much as wo dislike to bring the iss
cue before our people, we can no long
er disregard the signs of the approach
jug storm, and the insolent overbearing
disposition displayed by the negroes at
Raleigh and elsewhere clearly fore
shadows an absoluta determination on
their part to bring about as speedily
ns possible a war of races, and to meet
.his will call for the undivided exer
tions of the whites. Our moderation
and forbearance has met with justsach
-return as might have been expected
from the base born minds of the ne
groes aad any further concession to
their insolent deuiinds would be doing
gross injustice to every Southern white
lcaan. We have not yet uiide up our
flainds to surrender the control of our

absolute superiority in every respect

Let us accept the issue thus defiantly

only remember that we are contending

Gen. Wade Hampton having been
solicited, by a number of prominent
.citizens,-for his views as the duty of

ference to its reorganization under the
Military bills, replies in a long letter,
ursine. f.niiSt the injustice and uu-
.couTTitutionaiity of the proposed mcas
ures. While anxious for restoration,
hi prefetesthe military rule to the prof-
terais. He lestances no-w rccuu-
. , . . i
constituents. He denies th
Congress to interfere with the suffrage
in the States, and counsels justice to
the negroes, and is in favor of impar.
tial suffrage. He advises the people
to register, and to vote against a Con
vention. We clip from his letter the follow
ing Extract, showing his views.
" It is scarcely necessary for me to
say, entertaining the views I have ex
pressed, I think it far preferable the
State should remain in its present con
dition, under military rule, than that
it should give its sanction to measures
which we believe to be illegal, uncon
stitutional and ruinous. It is my honest
and firm belief that the voluntary ac
ceptance of these measures by our peo
ple would surely bring, not only to the
South, but to the whole country, evils
far greater than any we have yet suffer
ed. The North, flushhd with success,
and drunk with power, may not be able
to realize this fact ; but as surely as
i ut: ouaiu miia u victim iu irresponsi
ble and unlicensed power, so surely will
the North lose its liberties. Ituin to
the South will react on the North, and
if we arc crushed to the dust, the North
ern people will see but the foreshad
owing of their own certain doom.
Recognize, as an established principle,
the right of any political party that
may be in the ascendancy to fix upon
all who differ with them laws uuathor
ized by the Constitution of the United
States, and we shall begin that down
ward career which will lead steadily
through confusion, anarchy and blood,
to the certain overthrow of republican
institutions aud free government. Be
lieving this, I regard it as the duty of
every man, in the exercise of the right
accorded to all by these military bills,
to oppose their adoption by all lawful
means. As the people have the privi
lege, then, of expressing either assent
or dissent on t!iis question, I advise
theu, earnestly, to record the latter as
fully and solemnity as possible. let
every man register, and cast his vote
agaiust the Convention, sicce the ques
tion will be made on that issue.
President of the United
Washington, Sept. 8. The
lowiu-r proclamation waa issued
this morning by the President of the Uni
ted States of America:
Whereas, in the month of July.
Anno Domini 1861, the two Houses
of Congress, with extraordinary unan
imity, solemly declared that the war
then existing was not waged on the
part of the government iu any Bpirit
of oppression nor for any purpose of
conquest or subjugation, nov for the
purpose of over throwing or interfer
ing with the rights or establishtd
institutions of State, but to defend and
maintain the supremacy of the Consti
tution and to preserve the Union with
all the diguity aud rights of the sev
eral States unimpaired, and that as
soon as the objects should be accomp
lished that the war ought to cease:
And whereas, the President of the
United States, on the th day of De
cember. Anno Domini 18G3, and on
the 2Gth of -March, Anno Domini 1864,
did with the objects of suppressing the
then existing rebellion, of inducing
all persons to return to their loyalty
and of restoring the authority of the
United States, insuc proclamations
offering amnesty and pardou to all
persons who had directly or indirectly
participated in the then existing rebel
lion, except as in those proclamations
were specified and reserved: And
whereas, the President of the United
States did, on the 29th day of May,
Anno Porniui 1B65, issue a further
proclamation, with the same objects
before mentioned, and to the end that
the authority of the Government of
the United States might be restored,
and that peace, order and freedom
rnhrht be established; and the President
did by the said last mentioned procla
mation proclaim and declare that he
thereby granted to all persons who had
directly or indirectly participated in
tho then existing rebellion, except as
therein excepted, amnesty and pardon,
with restoration of all righjts of pro
perty, except ag to slaves, and except
in certain asos where legal proceed
ings had been instituted, but upon
condition that such persons should take ;
and subscribe an oath therein prescrib
ed, which oath should be registered
ful permanent preservation: And
whereas, in and by the said last aient-
loned proclamat ion of the 29th day of
May, Anno Domini 1865, fourteen
extensive clauses of persons therein
specially described were altogether
excepted and excluded from the bene
fit thereof: And whereas, the President
of the United States did, on the 2d day
of April, Anno Domini 186S, issue a
proclamation declaring that tho insur
rection was at an end. and was thence
forth -to he so regarded: And whereas
there now exist no organized armed
resistance of misguided .citizens ox
Others to the authority of the United
States in the States of Georgia, South
Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina,
T.uussee, Alabama, Louisiana, Ark
ansas, Mississippi, Florida a?d Texas,
and the laws can be sustained and en
forced therein by the proper civil au
thorities, State or Federal, and the
people of said States are well and loy
ally disposed and have conformed, or
if permitted to do so will conform in
iheir legislation to the condition of
affairs crowing out of the amendment
to the Constitution of the United States
prohibiting slavery within the limits
and jurisdiction of the United States
And whereas, there no longer exists
any reasonable ground to apprehend
within the States which were involved
in the late rebellion anyeaewal there
of or any unlawful resistance by the
people ofaid States to the Constitu
tion and laws of tho United StatcB:
And whereas, largo standing armies
military occupation, martial military
tribunals, and the suspension .01 tb.
be sustained or allowed, except in cases
of actual necessity for repelling an in
vasion or suppressing insurrection or
rebellion: And, whereas, a retaliatory
or vindictive policy, attended by un
necessary disqualifications, pains, penal
tics, confiscations and disfranchise
ments, now, as always, could only tend
to hinder reconciliation among the
people and national restoration, while
it must seriously embarass, obstruct
and repress popular energy and nation
al industry and enterprise: And
whereas, for these reasous it is now
deemed essential to the public welfare
and to the more perfect restoration of
constitutional law and order, that the
said last mentioned proclamation, so as
aforesaid issued, on the 29th day of
May, Auno Domini 1865, should be
modified and that the full and benefi
cent pardon conceded thereby, should
be opened and further extended to a
large number of the persons; who, by
its aforesaid exception have been hi
herto excluded from executive clem
ency; Now, therefore, be it known that I,
Andrew Johnson, President of the
United States, do hereby proclaim and
declare that the full pardon described
in the said proclamation of the - 29th
day of May, Anno Domini 1S65, shall
henceforth be opened and extended to
all persons who directly or indirectly
participated in the late rebellion, with
the restoration of all privileges, im
munities and rights of property, ex
cept as to property with regard to slaves,
and except in cases of legal proceed
ings under the laws of the United
States, but upon this condition, never
theless, that every such person who
shall seek to avail himself of this pro
clamation shall take and subscribe the
following oath, and shall cause the
same to be registered for permanent
preservation in the same manner aud
with the same effect as with the oath
prescribed in the said proclamation of
the 29th day ot May, 1SC5, namely:
"I do solemnly swear, or afErm, in the
presence of Almighty God, that I will j
heccforth faithfully support, protect
and defend the Constitution of the
United States and the Union of the
States thereunder, and that" I will in
like manner abide by and faithfully
support all laws and proclamations
which have been made during the late
rebellion with reference to the emanci
pation of slaves. So help me God."

are excluded from the benefits of this
proclamation, and of the said procla
mation of the 29th day of May, 1865,

tive officers, including the Presideul

Mortality Among the Negroes
NOHTHKRN PlIILANTHROPIlY, &e.
Speaking of the increase and decrease
of population, suggests the idea that it
would be in order to ask the Jacobin
majority in Congress to institute in
quiry as to the number of negroes who
have died since they were taken under
the care and protection of the Federal
Government. I have heard the num
ber estimated at half a million. Some
contend that these figures are too high,
others that they are too low. - Now,
as it is well known that no account was
kept of the number of negroes who
dhd, the only way iu which the fact
could he ascertained would be to have
the census of the negro population of
all the Southern States taken. That
the mortality ot the negro population
was much larger after it was freed than
ever before kuowu, even iu times of
epidemic, is a well settled fact. Major
Plumley, who was for a time couuec
ted with the Freedmeu's Bureau in
this State, re ported that amoifg' the
negroes under his special care the
mortality was thirty-four per cent, and
that, too, when no fatal epidemic pre
vailed. Another government officer,
whose duty it was to look after aband
oned estates, reported that on two plan
tutiunin a neiyhboring parish, themoi
tulitg had exceeded one half the slave
population, in less tha?i two years after
thertderal troops had invaded this
State. The minority of these deaths

Finding it impossible to live peaceably

In sections of this and other Slates South,
Emery's Gin has no rival. It is the finest
Gin known and when well cared for produc
es superior lint, with fewer motes and less
sand than any other in use. This quality
makes it mere valuable than many may sup
pose, as it is now getting to be weil known,
that the India, Brazilian and Eyyptain Cot
tons, are, in torsequence of nice handling,
gaining a reputation they did not enjoy a few
years back. The neglect of attention to clean
picking and ginning cotton, will in a Jew
years, it is thought by those who profess to
know, do more towards breaking down this
great agricultural pursuit at the South, than
all other causes combined. It is already a
well ascertained fact, that the finest speci
mens of Cotton exhibited in Liverpool du
ring the past year, were from Egypt. Eme
ry's Gin in the hands of a skillfull and intel
ligent operator will turn out the cleanest Cot
ton of any Other Gin in use, and cost little
to keep it in order. The cost ot the Gin per
saw is onlv a fraction higher than ordinary
gins. They are warranted when good care
is used with -them. Person's who wish to

whom there never, lived in Edgecombe, a
farmer of closer observation or belter judg

used, and in one was better, viz : That it could
be handled more roughly by the operator

ST ATE OF IVOR ill C AROLIN A,
Raleigh, September 4th, 1So7.
To the Sheriff's and Tax Collectors of N. C.:
In consequence of information just receive
ed, I deem it my duly to inform you that you
are bound by law, to pay lliet-tate Taxes
now due into the Public -Treasury, prior to
the first day of October next. Unless pay
ment shall be made, I am imperatively bound,
" at the first Ceurt which shall occur after
the default, to move for judgment ng-ain.-t de
linquents, (or the full amount of taxes due,
deducting nothing for commissions or insol
vents, but adding one thousand dollar, lor
taxes supposed not to appear, in tlie lit
transmitted by the Clerk."
The next Superior Court of Wake will be
gin on the 3'Jtb of September. With every
disposition to gram indulgence to the Sherili's
and the people, I think it best to notify you,
thai the law gives me no discretion, aud that
unless payments be made on or before the
4th of October next, being Friday of the Su
perior Court of Wake, judgment will assu
redly be moved, against all delinquents.
I learn that an opinion prevails in some
quarters that the Slate Treasury has a large
surplus and needs no lurther replenishment.
This is not true.
The taxes collected under the Revenue
Act of lb66, will be nearly exhausted by the
close of the present fiscal year, September
30th, 1S67. The taxes now being collected
will be needed for the year ending Sept. 3 )lh,
1803. Out of this fund must be paid the ex
penses of the State government for the com
ing year, of the Asylums of the probable
Convention and General Assembly, in fine,
all ordinary and extraordinary appropriations
made by la v.
This is the smallest State tax levied since
1S4S. Tax payers should attend to their du
ty at once and cheerfully. They will expect
relief in vain. The District Commander has
been urged lo stop the collection, but has
declined to interfere, Let Sheriffs, by ener
getic collections, and tax payers by prompt
payments, save me Irom the painful duty of
enlotcingthe law against delinquents.
