Our wrongs bear alike npon all races, and

We may fly from our homes, but we should

denouncing and defeating treason, refused
to right those who had bravely assisted them
in the good work.
Till we are wholly rescued, there is neither
peace for you nor prosperity for us.
We cannot better define at once our wrongs
and our wants than by declaring that, since
Andrew Johnson affiliated with his early
slanderers and our constant enemies, his
hand has been laid heavily upon every earn

judgment of the present, and the. certain
confirmation of the future, invite and com
mand us to declare

restoring the Union, he has resorted to the
weapon of traitors to bruise and beat down
That, after declaring that none but the
loyal should govern the reconstructed South,
he has practised upon the maxim that none
but traitors shall rule.
That, while in the North he has removed
conscientious men from office and filled
mriny of the vacancies with the sympathizers
ot treason, in the South he has removed the
proved and trusted patriot and selected the
equally proved and convicted traitor.
That, after brave men who had fought for
the old flag have .been nominated for posi
tions, their names have been recalled and
avowed rebels substituted. !
That, every original Unionist in the South
who stands fast to Andrew Johnson's cove
nants from 18G1 to 1865, has been ostracized.
That, he has corrupted the local oourts by
offering premiums for defiance of the laws of
Congress, and by openly disoouraging the
observance of the oath against treason.
That, while refusing to punish one single
conspicuous traitor, though thousands had
earned the penalty of death, more than a
thousand of devoted Union citizens have
been murdered in cold blood since the sur
render of Lee, and in no case have their as
sassins been brought to judgment.
That, he has pardoned some of the worst
of the rebel criminals, North and South, in
cluding some who have taken human iife un
der circumstances of unparalleled atrocity.
That, while denouncing and fettering the
operations of the Freeedmen's Bureau, he,
with a full knowledge of the falsehood, has
charged that the black men are lazy and re
bellious, and has concealed the fact that more
whites than blacks have been protected and
foci by that noble organization, and that,
while declaring that it was corruptly mana
ged and expensive to the government, he has
connived at a system of profligacy in the
use of the public patronage and pubiic mon
ey wholly without parallel, save when the
traitors bankrupted the Treasury, and
sought to disorganize and scatter the army
and the navy, only to make it more easy to
capture and destroy the government.

of leaving eieven States unrepresented, he
has refused to authorize the liberal plan of

to burn the churches in which the freedmen
have worshipped the living God.
That a system so barbarous should have
culminated in the frightful riot at Memphis,
and the still more appalling massacre at New
Orleans, was as natural as that a bloody war
should flow from the teachings of John C.
Calhoun and Jefferson Davis.

- Notwithstanding this . heartless desertion
and cruel persecution by Andrew Johnson in
the States of Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee,
West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware, de
mocratic republican principles principles
which the lathers or tue KepuDiic designed
tor all America are now making determin
ed battle with the oligarchical enemies of
constitutional government ; and by the bless
ing or God these states will soon range
themselves in with the former free States,
and illustrate the wisdom and beneficence of
the great charter of American liberty by their
increasing population, wealth, and pros
perity. In the remaining ten States the seeds of
oligarchy planted in the Constitution by its
slavery features have grown to be a monster
power Recognition thus wrung from the
reluctant framers of that great instrument,
enabled these States to entrench themselves
behind the perverted doctrine of States
rights, and sheltered by a claim of constitu
tional obligation to maintain slavery in the
States, to present to the American govern
mentthe alternatives of oligarchy with slave
ry, or democratic republican government
A forbearing government, bowing to
supposed constitutional behest, acquiesced in
the former alternative.
The hand of the government was stayed
for eighty years. The principles ot consti
tutional liberty languished for want of gov
ernmental support. Oligarchy matured its
power with subtle design. Its history, for
eighty years, is replete with unparalleled
" injuries and usurpations." It developed
only the agricultural localities geographi
cally distinct from the tree-labor localities,
and less than one third ot the whole with
African slaves. It held four millions of hu
man beings as chattels yet made them the
basis of unjust representative power for them
selves in Federal and State Governments to
maintain their enslavement.
It excluded millions of free white laborers
from the richest agricultural lands of the
world : forced them to remain inactive and
unproductive on the mineral, manufacturing
and lumber localities, comprising iwo-ruirus
of the whole South, in square miles, and real
undeveloped wealth simply because these
localities were agriculturally too poor for
slave labor ; condemned them to agriculture
on this unagricultural territory, and con
signed them to unwilling ignorance and
poverty, by denying capital and strangling
It repelled the capital, energy, will and
skill of the free States from the free labor
localities by unmitigated intolerance and
proscription, thus guarding the approaches
to their slave domain against democracy.
Statute-books groaned under despotic
laws against unlawful and insurrectionary
assemblies, aimed at the constitutional guar
antees of the right to peaceably assemble and
petition for redress of grievances.
It proscribed true democratic literature as
It nullified the constitutional guarantees
of freedom f speech and of the press.
It deprived the citizens or the other Mates
of the " privileges and immunities " m these
States, an injury and usurpation alike unjust
to Northern citizens, and destructive of the
best interests of the States themselves.
Alarmed at the progress of democracy, in
the face of every discouragement, at last it
sought immunity by secession and war.
The heart sickens with the contemplation
ot the four years that followed forced loans,
impressments, conscription, with blood
hounds and bayonet, murder of aged Union
men, who had laid aside the implements of
labor, but had been summoned anew to the
field by the conscription of their sons, to sup
port children and grand children, reduced
from the comfort to the verge of starvation :
the slaughter of noble youths, types of physi
cal manhood, forced into an unholy war
against those with whom they were identi
fied by every interest ; long months of incar
ceration in rebel bastiles, banishment from
homes and hearthstones, are but a partial re
cital of the long catalogue of horrors.
But the Democracy, North and South com
bined, defeated theiu. They lost. What did
they lose ? The cause of oligarchy ? They
lost African slavery by name only. As soon
as the tocsin of war ceased as soon as the
clang of arms was hushed they raise the cry
of 'Immediate achniision," and with that
watchword seek to organize, under new
forms, a contest to perpetuate their unbri- i
died sway. They rehabilitate their sweep
ing control of all local and State organiza
tions. The Federal Executive, easily seduced j
yields a willing obedience to his old mas
ters. Aided by his unscrupulous disregard
of Constitution and laws, by his merciless
proscription of true democratic opinion, and
by all his appliances of despotic power, they
now defiantly enter the lists in the loyal
North, and seek to wring from freemen an
endorsement of their wicked dt-signs.
Every foul agency is at work to accom
plish this result. Falsely professing to as
sent to the abolition of slavery, they are con
triving to continue its detestable power by
legislative act3 against pretended vagrants.
They know that any form of servitude will
answer their unholy purpose. They pro
nounce the four years' war a brilliant side
scene in a great revolutionary drama. Pro
scriptive public sentiment holds high carni
val, and, . profiting by the example of the
Presidential pilgrim, breathes out threaten
ings and slaughter against loyalty, ignores
and denounces all legal restraints, and assails
with the tongue of malignant slander the
constitutionally-chosen representatives of the
To still the voice of liberty dangerous
alone to tyrants midnight conflagrations,
assassinations and murders in open day, are
called to their aid. A reign of terror through
all these ten States makes loyalty stand si
lent in the presence of treason, or whisper in
bated breath- Strong men hesitate openly
to speak for liberty, and decline to attend a
convention at Philadelphia for fear of de
struction. But all Southern men are not yet awed in
to submission to treason ; and we have as
sembled from all these States determined
that liberty, when endangered, shall find a
mouthpiece, "and that " the Government of
the people, by the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the earth."We are
here to consult together How best to provide
for a Union of truly Republican States ; to
seek to relume thirty-six stars on theold flag.
We are here to see that ten of these stars are
not opaque lodies. paling their ineffectual fires
beneath t he gloom and darkness of oligarchi
cal tyranny and oppression. We wish them
to be brilliant stars; emblems of constitution
al liberty ; glittering orbs, sparkling with
the life giving principles of the model Re-
Eublic fitting adornments of the glorious
anner of freedom.
Our last and only hope is in the unity and
fortitude of the loyal people of America in
the support and vindication of tbe Thirty
Ninth Congress, and in the election of a con
trolling Union majority in tbe succeeding; or
While the new article amending the na
tional Constitution offers the most liberal con
ditions to the authors ot the rebellion, and
does not come up to the measure of our ex
pectations, we believe its ratification would
be the commencement of a complete and Lis
ting protection to all our people ; and there
fore we accept it as the best present remedy,
and appeal to cur brothers and friends in the
North and the West to make it their watch
word in the coming elections.
The tokens are auspicious of overwhelm
ing success. However little the verdict of
the ballot-box may affect the reckless man
in the Presidential chair, we cannot "doubt
that the traitors and sympathizers he has en
couraged will recognize that verdict as the
- surest indication that- the mighty power
which; crushed the rebellion is still alive, and
that those who attempt to oppose or defy it
will do so at the- risk of their own destruct
ion. ; '. '. .. ; . ." .'
"-Our confidence in ' the overruling . provi
dence of God prompts the prediction and
intensifies the belief that when this warning
is sufficiently taught to these misguided and
reckless men, the liberated millions of the re
bellious South will be proffered those rights
and franchises which may be necessary to
adjust and settle this mighty controversy in
the spirit of the most enlarged Christian

Political Meeting in Northampton.
A meeting of the citizens of Northampton
county was held in the town of Jackson, on
Tuesday, the 4th day of September, I860.
On motion, Samuel Calvert was appointed
Chairman, and William J. Maddry chosen to
act as Secretary.
The chairman said that the chief object of
the meeting was to nominate candidates to
represent the county in the next Legislature ;
that the candidates nominated at a meeting
here on yesterday, were not, in his opinion,
acceptable to a majority of the people.
Col. John B. Odom moved that a commit
tee of five be appointed to prepare resolu
tions for the consideration of the meeting,
and to propose suitable .'persons as can
didates. The chairman thereupon appointed John
B. Odom, William Barrow, E. A. Martin,
James B. Barnes, and Lemuel Boyce a com
mittee, who reported the following resolu
1. Resolved, That whilst it is natural for'
us to desire the return of the State to her
former constitutional relations with the Fed
eral Government, upon the most favorably
terms, yet since the end of the recent unfor
tunate strife of arms, we have submitted
and, as law-abiding and Union-loving, citi
zens, we expect to submit to all the require
ments, constitutionally imposed on us by
the authorities of the general government,
in view of the future peace, and, above all,
of the perpetual and eternal union of the
2. Jteaolced, That we have entire confi
dence in the ability, integrity, patriotism,
and strong attachment to the Union of our
present representatives to the State Legisla
ture, and cordially recommend theni for re
election. After powerful addresses from Col. John
B. Odom, and Dr. William Barrow, the res
olutions were unanimously adopted.
Messrs. It. II. Garner, James W. JNewsom,
and Jesse Flythe, members of the last Legis
lature, made appropriate addresses.
In response to the wishes of the meeting,
Messrs. Garner and Newsom declared them
Mr. Flythe, in a feeling speech, declared
that, for the sake of the cause for which he
and his friends present had been battling, he
would like to be a candidate but very del
icate health absolutely prevented the gratifi
cation of such a desire.
Whereupon, Capt. E. A. Martin was put
in nomination, which being approved of, he
accepted and declared himself a candidate.
On motion, it was ordered, that the Ral
eigh papers be requested to publish the pro
ceedings of this meeting.

Collision on the N. C. Railroad.
At about half past four o'clock yesterday
morning, a collision took place between the
Freight train, bound East, and the Gravel
train on the N. C. K. R., near Harrisburg,
killing three men and severely wounding
Two of the killed were white men and the
other a freedman ; one of the former lived
near Salisbury, but his name we could not
learn ; the other, an Irishman named Cooly.
We wonld ascertain nothing in regard to the
freedman. Mr. Lewis, engineer of the Grav
el train, had his leg taken off above the knee,
aud is otherwise severely hurt. The fireman
was badly scalded, and another employee,
name not known, badly injured.
We understand that Cooly 's body wasrob
led of about $200, and parties are now on
the track of the thief. It is hoped that the
scoundrel who would rob the dead, will be
caught and promptly punished. The Freight
van somewhat behind time and the Conduc
tor of the Gravel train thought it had passed
md went out to work, and in the darkness
collided with the results above stated.
The Richmond Examiner issues the follow
ing order to President Johnson in relation to
Mr. Davis. It makes one's blood boil to see
the arrogant and impudent style in which
this treasonable sheet addresses the Presi
dent ot the United States :
" Wucn the unelement Clements of Virginia
offered his atrocious resolution of thanks to Un
derwood, the packer of juries, for his persecution
of Jctferson Davis, a ruffian from Mississippi
named Sidney (who claimed to have foujj'it by
Mr. Davis's side in the Mexican war) spoke in
iror of it, and avowed himself of opinion that
Jefferson Davis should be hanged kvyiihout Judge
or Jury.' For this vile and crnel sentiment he
11s applawie I by the convention and the Phila
delphia audience. Could anything more strongly
indicate the character ot that assembly ? Its inef
3a2)lu meanness defies words the language can
uot fitly characterize it.
To show bis detestation of the Radicals aud
fclicir diabolical wishes aud impulses, Andrew
Johusou must liberate Mr. Davis on bail, or on
ifcts own recognizance, or absolutely at onee. If
.Mr. Johnson is an implacable foe of Jefferson
Davis, we desire to know it. The enemies of the
illustrious prisoner arc our enemies, and we 6hall
resent improper treatment iu his case as much as
.in our own. If Mr. Johnson is uot one of those
who thirst for the blood of the ex-President of
the late Conlederacy it is time for him to declare
:so by his acts. The excuse of awaiting the action
of Congress never was a good one, and it is now
entirely out of date. The fear of exasperating the
Radicals by an act of clemency towards Mr. Davis
is all nonsense, when the President has even
sought their enmity in various unnecessary ways.
They hate him now to their utmost capacity, and
"nothing that he can do can add to their ill-will
That will be a miserable policy indeed which
shall result in making its projector bated and de
nounced on all sides. The President is in danger
of achieving that undesirable consummation.
We warn him that il he forgets the solitary tenant
of Fortress Monroe, 1 ho people of the South, and
the people of humane impulses everywhere, con
tinually remember him. We are growing impa
tient of a protracted, lingering confinement that
has no excuse none. Mr. Davis is buried alive
without Judge or Jury,' and it is hard to see that
it would be much worse to hang him, in like
manner, according to the wish of Sidney of Mis
sissippi. It is certainly just as illegal and tyran
nical ; and if Mr. Johnson can reconcile it with
his duty or his conscience, we shall reluctantly
and sorrowfully, j et firmly, turn from one so lost
to mercy and justice. We hope, however, that he
win yet do ngnt in tne case ot Mr. Davis."

Purify the Blood. If the blood be pure
the body which is formed from and by the blood
cannot be diseased. But if there be in any part
of-the body any affection, Buch as a boil or ulcer,
even a bruise, the blood circulating through that
part takes up impure matters from the leal af
fection and carries it into the general system.
This is the cause often of sudden death to per
sons of full habit afflicted with boils and ulcers,
and who use no medicine ; the matter gets into
the circulating system and chokes up the fine
blood vessels which supply the brain with vitali
ty, and life ceases, as if
Bereft by Lightning.
Now, this can be remedied.

save the general health, soou curing local affect
