NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
Of Richmond County.
The Union Meeting
We publish to-day the proceedings of the
Union meeting held in this City on Thurs
day last. The notice for the Convention was
so short, and the difficulty of making it
known, owing to the want of mail facilities,
was so great, and there is such scarcity of
money among the people, that the attem lance
was not 8.0 full as we could- have desired.
Those who were present felt that, under the
circumstances, it would not be right to hold
a Convention, and thus attempt to speak for
the State ; and so a meeting was organized,
and the results of its deliberations are em
bodied in the j,.oceedings referred to. We
heard from many friends who were anxious
to be present, but who were prevented by
pressing engagements or by the want of
means. Letters were received from distin
guished Unionists approving the movement,
and warmly recommending Gen. ALFRED
DOCKERY for Governor. The minds of
loyal Union men in all parts of the State
seem to have turned instinctively to him, to
bear our flag in this important crisis.
We invite attention to the resolutions adop
ted. They simply present the Union of the
States as the paramount good. They incul
cate what all parties professed in this State,
in 1865 submission to the legally expressed
will of the majority of the American people.
They are not bitter or uncharitable. They
leave the door open for every honest man to
plant himself on the platform of unmistaka
ble loyalty ; and in this respect they accord
with the views of President Johnson, for he
has repeatedly and emphatically declared
that no man should be trusted who is not
" unmistakably loyal and devoted to the
Union." In a word, they embody great
Union principles which must, in the end, pre
vail. In the language of that sterling Union
ist, Lewis Thompson, Esq., we should " Make
the Union our first and only hope for eve
ry thing that is to come hereafter. Our na
tionality should be the bond of the party,
and Congress should be called upon to put
the State in a proper condition to be restored
by her loyal people. We are farther from
restoration to-day than we have been since
the surrender, and the tone and temper of
the secessionists is infinitely more defiant
and overbearing. Let the country fully un
derstand these national issues, and if the peo
ple do not sustain us in the long run, there
is an end of the government, and anarchy
must hereafter prevail." Mr. Thompson also
says, " I suggest that Alfred Dockery be re
commended for Governor. He is well known
as true and worthy, and would be aecejtable
to all parts of the country, North and South."
Such is the advice of one of the purest pat
riots and one of the ablest statesmen in the
country. There is no office which Lewis
Thompson would have. He says, "I am
willing to fight in the ranks as a private, but
caaoot accept any other position."
We have good reason to believe that Gen.
Dockery will be a candidate. We know he
does not desire the office, and that he is a
vexse to mingling in political strife. But he
regards the immediate restoration of the Un
ion as of paramount importance ; and if his
fellow-citizens desire his services, as the in
dications in all quarters are that they do, he
will not withhold them. No man is more
thoroughly or more honorably identified with
the State and its interests than Alfred Dock
ery. He has shown himself in times past the
ardent friend of internal improvements and
common schools, and indeed of every interest
that demanded or deserved the fostering care
of the State. He has always been a Union
man. He imbibed his Unionism at the pure
fountains opened by Washington, and Clay,
and Webster ; and during all the struggle
for the Union he stood like a rock, without
regard to former party associations, side by
ide with those old Jackson Democrats who
loved the Union as he did. Gen. Dockery
is no party man. He is simply a Union man.
He knows no difference between Whigs and
Democrats who are Union men, and he would
treat them all alike; but, notwithstanding
this, his record as an old line Union Whig
will sot be forgotten by those with whom he
formerly acted. On this score he has greatly
the advantage of Gov. Worth, for he has
never deserted his life-long principles, as
Gov. Worth has done, in order to obtain of
fice at the hands of those politicians who
were instrumental in involving the country
in civil war.
We appeal to the Union men of the State
to rouse themselves for the contest. It will
be short, but we trust, triumphant for the
Union cause. Let every Unionist work, work,
work up to and on the day of election. Ev
ery thing dear to our State is at stake. If
we can not secure her restoration to the Un
ion at the next session of Congress, the re
sult will be, reorganization, confiscation, ex
ecutions for treason, and negro suffrage. The
only way to defeat the radicals, so-called, is
to aceept the Constitutional amendment.
The eleetion of Gen. Dockery would, of it
self, place the State on high ground, and
would do much to open the way for her re
turn to the Union.
Threatexed War in EuuopE. The Ca
ble informs us to-day that the insurrectionists
in the Island of Candia have been defeated
by the Turks. " The population of this Island
is Christian by three-fourths. They belong
to the Greek Church, of which the Czar of
Russia is the head. Turkey holds Candia,
possession having . been given her by the
other European powers after the expulsion of
the first Napoleon from Egypt. The Chris
tians of Candia recently raised the standard
of revolt, and it is supposed have appealed to
Russia for help. The Czars have gons to
war with Turkey before in a similar quarrel,
and are prepared to renew the contest at any
time. Indeed, it seems that the whole of
Europe is now likely to be involved in a dis
astrous and bloody war.
FuNEBAivWe observe that the National
Has is liberally "suspended, to-day, from the
building occupied by the Chief Quartermas
ter ot the Department .or rtortn-iarouna.
We take it that this is done out of respect
to the memory of detunct; .Radicalism in
North-Carolina, whose obsequies are pro
gressing to-day with Holden, Thomas, Leh
man. Menningcr & Co., as pall-bearers. ':. We
take it for granted that this is the object of
the display. .Political antipathy to the Ad
ministration, of course, can have nothing to
do with it. Sentinel.
The Sentinel, then, assumes that to display
the American flag is to give offence to the
national administration. We do not think
so. The administration is the peculiar cus
todian of the flag. It honors the flag, as ail
" unmistakably loyal" men do in all portions
of the country.
The Sentinel Io3cs no opportunity to ex
press its dislike of the American flag. Or
dinary prudence, it seems to us, should re
strain the Sentinel in this respect, but its feel
ing against the flag and the loyalty which it
symbolizes is so intense that it will crop out
on nearly every occasion.
We learn that Seaton " lost his soup" on
Thursday. He could not think of going to
his dinner along the street where the flag
was waving. It is reported that Brother
Pell was seen, about 2 P. M., making his way
home to his dinner up Hillsborough streeti
by Mr. Drake's old stand. We trust the
health of our worthy cotemporaries will not
be injured by these efforts of theirs to avoid
walking under or near the flag.
Mail Routes and Post-offices.
The special agent for this State, Dr. A.
Jobe, is still indefatigably engaged in pro
viding mail facilities for our people. He
requests us to say that he would like to have
information from all parts of the State in
relation to useless mail routes that should
be suspended, and also as to routes that
should be established. Also, any informa
tion in relation to mail facilities that may
be deemed important. Address him at
We learn that about half the post-offices
have been re-established in this State.

American Gold and Silver. The gold
and silver products of the United States for
the year 18G6 have been estimated at from
eighty-two to one hundred and six millions.
California produced twenty-tive millions ;
Montana, eighteen millions ; Nevada sixteen
millions ; Idaho, seventeen millions ; Oregon,
eight millions ; Colorado, seventeen millions;
other sources, five millions.
J2P" Union men who agree in principle,
but who differ as to the details by which the
Union should be restored, ought not to fall
out by the way. Let this be remembered.
Surely all can unite on ALFRED DOCK
Crops. In certain sections of the State,
west and sonthwest, the crops have suffered
much by the drought. Except these locali
ties good crops will be made, especially of
cotton. Our information in relation to to
bacco is slender. Our people erenerallv have
reason to be thankful to a kind Providence
for its bountiful blessings.
In Arkansas goodcrops of cotton and corn
will be made. Some sections suffered from
overflow in the Spring, but generally the
crops are good, especially the wheat.
From Louisiana we learn that the cotton
crop is seriously damaged. Louisiana has
suffered much from inundations.
From middle Alabama the intelligence is of
a better character. A friend recently from
that section has given us cheering informa
tion about the cotton and corn.
A letter from Atlanta to a Northern paper
speaks of the fine appearance of the crops
along the Georgia railroads.
Along the Pamunkey in Virginia, says the
Despatch, the cotton raised is very good, of
long, fine stlple and will compare favorably
with best Southern grades.
In some parts of the South the crops will
fall short and the people suffer, in other sec
tions the very best crops will be made.
Important Testimony from Mr. Ray

"Party Platforms and Principles. -The
Albany Evening Journal manufactures
a good many reasons for attaching special
importance to what we said a few days
since upon a possible collission of authority
between two rival bodies, each claiming to
be the House of Representatives, and it as
cribes to the Times special aut hority to speak
for the President in regard to the action he
would take in that contingency. We have
no such authority, and, in the article refer
red to, expressly stated tha we judged of
his probable action only from his published
opinions on the subject. In no other way
have we ever had the slightest reason to an
ticipate or presume what it would be.
But the Journal is guilty of some flagrant
misrepresentation. It says :
' The Times was asked by a Pittsburgh
coteraporary whether it regarded the present
Congress as a Constitutional body ? To this
question the Times evasively replies that
there is possibly no reason for regarding the
present Congress otherwise than as a legiti
mate and Constitutional body because the
President has communicated with it, and
approved of acts that were passed by it.'
" We gave no such reason. We said we
regarded this Congress as a Constitutional
body, because it embraced a majority of all
the members required by law : and we added
that the President also regarded it as Con
stitutional, else he would not have signed
the bills it passed.
" We suggested, as a means of at once do
ing justice and of averting the threatened
danger, the admission of loyal members from
loyal States to their seats in Congress. This
the Journal styles 'surrendering the vital
point at issue.'' How long is it since the
Albany Jonrnal regarded the exclusion of
loyal men from Congress as a " vital issue "
in ita party platform ? On the 4th of Au-

WITH GOLD AT PAR,
so that no one need hesitate to buy a watch now
from the expectation that It will be cheaper at
some future time. The teat often years and the

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 excellent
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 factory 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 saying that we now
make more than one-half of all the watches tol l in

tinguished by the following trade-marks on the

AL 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 that unlike the guarantee of a
foreign maker who can never be reached, this
guarantee is good at all times against the Coin
pavy or their ageuts, and that if after the most
thorough trial, any watch should prove defective
in any particular, it may be always exchanged for
another. As the American Watches, made at
Waltham, Mass., are for sale by dealers generally
throughout the country, we do not solicit orders
for single watches.

only of respectable dealers. All persons Belling
