t in- is a misconception or nustatement, and
tsinYtlio writer was thinking of the Conyen
f,:i which is soon to assemble again. What
ever the Convention may further do in regard
t. public or private repudiation, I am not
informed. The onlv fear I have on the sub
neck isfcthat the members of the Convention
have not mixed up with the masses enough
4o ascertain their condition and wants. I
know that it the people 01 jNorui-rruu
have to pay all their indebtedness eveir

Stay Law, nearly one-half of the best Atizens

homeless. What is to become thousands
of Guardians and Wards, Ex'utorf.aild A""
ministrators, who invest their tunds in
State stock during the ar ? Either the one
or the other of the very numerous and
highly respectable- classes must go to the
wall. Now, i this state of things what
ought the Convention to do ? I undertake
to say that in view of what it has done, it
outfit to go further and repudiate all the in
debtedness of the citizens up to the 1st
June, 1865. But some, one will say, Oh ! the
Constitution forbids any State to pass ordi
nances or laws impairing private contracts.
I answer the Convention has already done
this thing to a very great degree. How is
the stockholder to be able to pay his debt
when the State has forced his 'bank to loan
her money to the State, and- then the State
through the Convention Tefuses to pay back
a dollar ? How is the Guardian to pay his
Ward, when he invested his funds in State
bonds, and the State through the Conven
tion refuses to pay these bonds? And so it
will be found to run through all the ramifi-
pntinna of sncietv. Now. whv should the
Convention stop on this half-way ground to j
the utter ruin of its down-trodden people ? j
Look at the Counties while the war was be-
ing waged, and our people hard pressed tor
money and credit; individuals were appealer
to for help ; the Counties were urged to conn
forward in a County organized capacity t. ,
raise funds to carry on the war. Many o
them did so and created large debts. Now
these debts were made expressly to aid an
carry on the war, has to be provided for anj
paid unless the Convention will assume i. ;
and blot it oat as it did its own. But I wil.
be met by some who will say repudiation is '
bo mean and contetoptible. Well, if we
could have done without any of it I say j
good ; but the Convention felt obliged to re- j
pudiate some thirty or forty millions of debt, j
and also to destroy one hundred and fifty j
millions of property belonging to private !
citizens. Now, after two strokes such as
that, it is rather provoking to hear it said j
that the Convention cannot do anything to j
impair private contracts. j
Now, Messrs. Editors, I come to look a
little at the spirit of an anti-repudiator. It
is easy to see the fire that burns in this short j
communication. He is anxiously awaiting j
for the Courts to be opened, and then, not- j
withstanding he promised while the war was ;
going on that the last dollar must be sacri- i
heed, he is ready to pounce down on the
poor debtor who did all that he could to
avert this war and demand the last copper.
This anti-repudiator is a true representative
man of a class of men left in our State who
will, if not prevented by authority, utterly
break down a still more numerous and
worthy class of citizens, and turn them out
as fugitives in the world.
In conclusion I will remark that I have
not been an idle spectator of men and things
during the war. I have seen thefierce con
test between the war and the anti-war par
ties, the one contending that the very best
interest of the country was to be promoted
by the war, the other equally confident that
in the end of the war we were to be a ruined
people. I have seen the war man collar the
Union man and punish him, and I know
something of the gall and the wormwood
that still lurks in the bosoms of these men.
But, Messrs. Editors, when you come to see
nearly half the citizens of North-Carolina
turned out of doors with their wives and
their children, and many of them now passed
labor, you will see a state of things worse to
be dreaded than the war itself. I pray God
that something may be done to avert this

of Raleigh, I take the liberty of addressing
you a few lines in regard to the case, so as to
place the matter in its proper light before the
public. Seven months ago I hired this boy,
Scott Williamson, when he was without
clothes or a permanent place, he being tem
porarily employed by Capt. Mclveras his ser
vant. I hired him at ten dollars per month
the first two months, and aa soon as he got
to understand how to make himself useful
about a Restaurant I raised his pay to fifteen
dollars per month. Well, sirs, on the third
of this month a certain man induced the boy
away by offering five dollars per month more
than I was giving, and this same fellow goes
before Capt. Almy and swears the boy's ser
vices were worth twenty-five dollars per
month to me, all the time he had been in my
employ, but that he was only worth twenty
dollars per month to him after learning his
business while in my employ, and as I am
writing this I am informed that he is going
to discharge the boy even at that salary. I
brought the action against the boy, having
overpaid him some twenty or thirty dollars,
and when the case was brought on I was out
of town on business, but requested ope of the
clerks of the Bureau to request Capt. Almy
to postpone the case until I returned The
clerk forgot to notify Capt. Almy, and so
when the case came up, there was but one
side to it, and Capt. Almy had to let the

North-Carolina has been numbered too
long among the dead Confederate States.
The great body of her honest farmers and
working-men are anxious to be restored to
the Union. In 1861, against her will, she
followed the cotton States into the horrors of
civil war. She is still suffering with these
cotton States, against her will. We want to

We understand Gov. Worth and his friends
are actively engaged in an effort to induce
the Convention to adjourn sine die, on the
pretext that there is nothing for it to do !
We entertain the utmost respect for the Con
vention, and it is very far from our purpose
to reflect on the motives or the integrity of
its members ; but we warn them in the most
earnest terms to beware of Executive influ
ence, and of certain other influences in Ra
leigh. Every effort will be made, and that
in the most insidious manner, to demoralize
and secessionize the Convention. Gov. Worth
was in office but a few hours before he declar
ed we had had enough of provisional gov
ernments ; and though he was advised by his
law officer to telegraph the President, and
ask him to continue the provisional magis
trates and town officers until the Legislature
could meet and fill their places, he declined
to do so, and thus left the State to the dan
gers of anarchy for some six weeks. He and
his friends are afraid of a loyal Convention.

ordered the collection of double the rates of
taxation upon all the usual subjects of rev

such a heavy assessment was indispensably
necessary to meet the wants and needs of the
County. Much the largest portion of our
County debt was incurred m atd of tlie re
bellion in the support of volunteer companies,
whilst being formed and organized, and in
the support of the families of those who en
tered the Confederate service. Now I. had
supposed that the United States government
rpnnired the non-Davment of all such
debts, to which our Convention had assented.
The authority for such heavy assessments is
derived from an act of the Legislature of
1862, in defiance of the fact, that all sucli
laws have been declared null and void.

Ilis Excellency the President
of the United States:
Sir : Contrary to my expectation, the
Convention has involved itself in a bitter
discussion of the State debt made in aid of
the rebellion. A continuance of this discus
sion will greatly excite the people and retard
the work of reconstruction. Our people are
believed to be against assuming the debt by
large majority. Is it not advisable that

loyal people of North-Carolina should be ex

indebtedness created to aid in carrying on
the rebellion. I trust and hope that the peo
ple of North-Carolina will wash their hands
of everything that partakes in the slightest

President of the United State.
On the 28th September, nearly a month
before the above correspondence took place,
the Convention of Alabama, by a vote of 60
to 19, passed an Ordinance similar to the
above; and Gov. Parsons informed the Pres
ident of the fact by telegraph. And on the

Washington, D. C, Oct. 28, 1865.
James Johnson, Provisional Governor,
Miuedgevule, Ga. :
Your dispatch has been received. The
people of Georgia should not hesitate one
single moment in repudiating every single
dollar of debt created for the purpose of aid
ing the rebellion against the Government of
the United States. It will not do to levy
and collect taxes from a State and people
that are .loyal and in the Union, to pay a
debt that was created to aid in an effort to
take them out, and thereby subvert the Con
stitution of the United States. I do not be
lieve the great mass of the people of the
State of Georgia, when left uninfluenced,
will ever submit to the payment of a debt
which was the main cause of bringing on
their past and present suffering, the reault of
the rebellion. Those who vested their capi
tal in the creation of this debt must meet
their fate, and take it as one of the inevitable
results of the rebellion, though it may seem '
hard to them. It should at once be made
known, at home and abroad, that no debt
contracted for the purpose' of dissolving the.
Union of the States can or ever will'be paid
by taxes levied on the 'people for sueffpur
pose, -ANDREW JOHNSON,-; t:-
- President of the United States,
On the 7th November the Georgia Con
vention repudiated the rebel debt by a vote
of 133 to 117. :T;-;.. ., " " -
The determination of the President from
the outset was that not one cent of the rebel
debt should be paid. The last inst. n :tions
he gave to the writer of this, as he was about
leaving Washington in May last, were in
these words : " Go home and see to it that
slavery is abolished, and, that not one- cent of
the rebel debt is paid.n . The policy of the
President in this respect was uniform. Every
State was required to ignore this debt, and
there is no shadow of hope that any State
that refuses to ignore it can be restored to
the Union. Much censure was visited on
the Provisional Governor of North-Carolina
on account of the repudiation of the rebel
debt ; but a calm and just review of the facts
as they exist, will show that this censure was
not deserved. That officer, like the other
Provisional Governors, simply performed his
duty under the orders of the President.
It is a bad sign that any County, thus
early, while the Convention that passed the
above Ordinance is still in being, should at
tempt to tax the people to pay this debt.
We warn politicians who want to pay this
debt, and holders of bonds who are looking
to their own particular benefit in this matter,
that the people will resist any attempt to collect
taxes to pay this debt.
Grape Growing. North-Carolina is pe
culiarly the home of the vine; the best grapes
cultivated in America are natives of this
State. The Cataieba, Laspeyres, Warrens,
Pamlicos, Skoupernongs and Waccamaws,
etc., are all indigenous to her soil. The lat
itude is known to be best adapted to the
grape in its natural condition. The soil that
originates is best calculated to produce.
Vine-culture simply follows, and guides by
experience, the laws of nature. Our people
should be assured that by no other branch of
Agriculture, can on small tracks of land be
made more highly remunerative. In foreign
exchanges we noticed the other day that a
vineyard at Gervy, in France, sold at public
auction, at the enormous rates of five thou
sand dollars an acre. There is no valid rea
son, either founded on soil or climate, that
such prices may not, in a few years be obtain
ed here, in our own country, if our farmers
would only pay enough attention to vine
growing, to require the requisite skill in the
preparation of their soil, and the requisite
knowledge in trimming and working the
Scspension of the Republic The Re
pubHeviiW be suspended after the issue of to
day. Whether the suspension will be per
manent, depends upon circumstances. This
result has become inevitable from the want of
sufficiently paying patronage, and the impos
sibility of collecting debts, caused by the
general impoverishment of the people. If
we had been able to extend credit to the
large number of people in the interior, who
desired to become subscribers, but were una
ble to make payment till the end of the year,
we should have had a circulation that would
have warranted the continuance of this jour
nal. But it was out of our power to do this,
and the discontinuance is imposed upon us
by a necessity which we are unable to avoid.
We part with regret from those friends of
Tlie Republic who have assisted us by their
patronage, and cheeied us by their sympathy
and encouragement. We shall never cease
to remember them with respect and grati
tude. We have labored in good faith for
the restoration of Union and Peace ; we have
sought to promote sentiments of good will
and fraternity towards all sections ; we have
endeavored to show that the best interests of
Virginia are involved in the loyal perform
ance, both in spirit and letter, of those obli
gations to the general government which her
people have assumed. Of all this we have
nothing to retract, and our last counsel to
our fellow-citizens, dictated by the most sin
cere, and, as we think, enlightened aspira
tions for their welfare, is the counsel we have
always given, to demonstrate by their acts
and words their fidelity to the Union, and
thereby strengthen the hands of the Presi
dent who is nobly struggling to restore these
States to their old relations to the govern
ment, aud to save the heritage of constitu
tional liberty from confusion and shame.
With these words we bid the public
There are many good Union papers in West

Union friends to stand by us. Their all, as
well as ours, is at stake.

from the expectation that it will be cheaper at
some future time. The test of ten years and the
manufacture and sale of
More than 200,000 Watches,
have given our productions the very highest rank
among time-keepers. Commencing with the de
termination to make only thoroughly exce'lent
watches, our business has steadily increased as
the public became acquainted with their value,
until for months together, we have been unable
to supply the demand. We have repeatedly en
larged our lactory buildings until they now cover
over three acres of ground, and give accommoda
tion to more than eight hundred workmen.
We are fully justified in stating that we now
make MORE THAN ONE-HALF OF ALL THE
WATCHES SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES.
The different grades are distinguished by the
following trade-marks engraved on the plate :
1. "American Wutch Co.," Waltham, Mass.
2. " Appleton, Tracy & Co.," Waltham, Muss.
3. " P. S Bartlctt," Waltham, Mass.
4. " Wm. Ellerv."
5. OUR LADIES' WATCH of first quality is
named " Appleton, Tracy & Co.," Waltham, Mass.
tt. Our next quality of Ladies' Watch is named
"P. 8. BartleU," Waltham, Mass. These watch
es are furnished in a great variety of sizes and
styles of cases.
The American Watch Co., of Waltham, Mass.,
authorize us to state that without distiuction of
trade-marks or price,
ALL THE PRODUCTS OF THEIR FACTORY
ARE FULLY WARRANTED
to be the best time-keepers of their class ever
made in this or any other country. Buyers should
remember tbat unlike the guarantee of a foreign
maker who cau never be reached, this warrantee
is good at all times against the Company or their
agents, and that if after the most thorough trial,
any watcii should prove defective in any particu
lar, it may always be exchanged for another. As
the American Watches made at Waltham, are for
sale by dealers generally throughout the country,
we do not solicit orders for single watches.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
only of respectable dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.

WE HAVE REVIVED THE MANUFAC

will be prepared to till orders by 1st June next
As we shall not be, as heretofore, represented by
traveling agents, parties wishing our Gins will
confer a favor by sending in their orders at an
early day. As owing to the demand, we shall be
unable to keep a stock in the hands of our local
agents, as it was our practice before the war. All
business transactions being now reduced to cash,
our sales will be made on the basis of ready pay.
Our Gins are too well known to require any
special notice or commendation ; we believe they
are unrivalled in the chief points of excellence
which go I o make up a superior machine, namely :
Speed, light drauyht and good sample.
"X)ur DOUBLE CYLINDER GINS will be found
superior to the single cylinder, when parties have
steam or good water power, to give them the
necessary speed. In all cases when this can be
done, we recommend them in preference to the
single cylinder. II, however, indifferent or in
sufficient power is used, they will not do as well
as the single Gin.
