The Soldiers and Sailors Convention. .
Washtwton, Augl- 2l'st.-TueycaHfor. a
Convention of soldiers' ancjl iallors, Wio en
dorse the President's policy, lo 'meet at
Clcaveland, Ohio, September 17th has v. been
issued. It ia signed and endorsed by Maj;
General Frank P, Blair, iloseau,'Qustery Mo
Cook, Steedman, -Meridith, - Dix,,.Slocnnv
Sickles and nearly -brie hundred general offi
cers of the late Federal anny ,- and as many
more subordinate officers, r : 1 ."".', '
The addre3s declares it to be the duty of
each State! ns well as iheir right, to partici.
pate in the government. The "signers of the
call believe that' the"South is sincere' 'iu its
declaration, and .they 'are unwilling that' its'
people shall be held in vassalage. They hold
that the Southern States cannot be denied
the right of representation in Congress with
out a plain violation of the Constitution.
It concludes by saying: "When the restor
ation of the Union and the preservation of
our form of government is in issue, however
much we regret to sever cherished political
associations, and to co-operate with former
enemies, must prefer to act with those who
have been wrong, and are now right, to those
who were right but are now wrong.
These soldiers are honest, but verdant.

X OF NORTH-CAROLINA I
THE STATE CONVENTION OF COLORED
men. held in this City last September, as a me
dium through which the colored citizens could
communicate their thoughts, purposes and de
sires, formed a state League, witn its auxiliaries,
to look alter tne interests oi tne uoiorea jf eopie
of the state ine state legislature nas been
memorialized in behalf of the colored people,
aud our petition was treated with respectful con
sideration. We have, as far as practicable, es
tablished auxiliary Leagues to promote the cause
of Education, and to look after the suffering
poor. While we feel a deep sense of gratitude to
those Benevolent Societies which have done so
much for the Freedman, still we are conscious of
the fact that we must learn to rely upon our
selves, and the world is looking to us for a dem
onstration of our capacity to perform the part of
useful, intelligent citizens.
The State League is the only recognized organ
ization we, as a colored people, have ; and it
having performed its duties to the best of its
ability, it was enjoined on us to call another Con
vention, to be held In the City of Raleigh, on the
first Tuesday in October next, the second day of
the month. Let each County be represented as
the Counties are represented in the State Legis
lature. In Counties where there are Leagues,
the Counties to be represented by the Leagues.
Let each County send its best men as delegates.
This is no time to compliment friends at the ex-
Sense of the public good. Let the people be in
uenced only by the consideration of qualifica
tion, and let the delegates be nere promptly on
the day appointed, that we may couusel together
for the good of our people, and adopt such
measures as will best promote our interests.
It is earnestly desired that every county be
fully represented. '
Delegates will come prepared to defray the ex
penses of the Convention.
