ADDRESS OF THE NATlONjlLTTNION
COMMITTEE JTO TITE AMERICAN -PEOPLE.
-t . ' ' ' ' " 4.
- FKMvf-CmzEN8Vcry grave difference
having arisen hetweeiv your immediate Rep
resentatives in-. Congress and the President
who owes his position to your votes, we are
impelled to ask your attention thereto, itnd
to suggest the duties to your country which
they render imperative. . - ; ,
We shall avoid the use- of hard worels. Of
these, there have already been too ninny.
And, that the matters in issue may he brought
within the narrowest , compass, let us first
eliminate from the controversy all that lias
already been settled or has never been in dis
pute. The Republic has been desperately assailed
from within, and its very existence seriously
imperiled. Thirteen States wer claimed aa
having withdrawn from the Union, and were
represented for veurs in a hostile Congress
meeting at Richmond. Ten of these States
were, for a time, wholly in the power of a hos
tile confederacy; the other three partially so.
The undoubtedly loyal States were repeated
ly anel formidably invaded by Rebel armies,
which were only expelled after obstinate and
bloody battles. Through four years of ardu
ous, desperate civil strife, the hosts of the
rebel Confederacy withstood those of the
Union. Agent3 of that Confederacy tra
versed the civilized world, seeking allies in
their war against the Republic, and inciting
the rapacious and unprincipled to fit out
tinned corsairs to prey upon onr commerce.
By Scate authority, and in tlte perverted
mimes of patriotism and loyalty, hundreds of
thousands of our countrymen were conscrip
ted into Rebel armies and made to light des
perately for our National disruption and
ruin. And though, by the blessing of God
and the valor and constancy of our loyal
people, the Rebellion was finally and utterly
crushed, it did not succumb until it had
caused the destruction of more than half a
million of precious human lives, not to speak
of property to the valne of at least five bill
ions of eloliats.
At length, the rebel armies surrendereti
and the rebel power utterly collapsed and van
ished. What then ?
The claim of the insurgents that they eith
er now re-acquired or had never forfeited
their constitutional rights in the Union, in
cluding that of representation in Congress,
in pointed antagonism alike to the require
ments ot Congress and to those of the acting
President. It was the Executive alone who,
after the Rebellion was no more, appointed
Provisional Governors for the now submis
sive, unarmed Southern States, on the as
sembling of a Convention, composed of dele
fates to" be chosen by that portion of the
people of said State who are loyal to the
United States, ami vo others, for the purpose
of altering and. amending the Constitution
of said State. P was Presielent Johnson
w ho, so late as October last when all shael
dow of overt resistance to the Union Intel
long since disappeared insisted that it was
not enough that a State which had revolted
must recognize her Ordinance of Secession
as null and void Irom the uegming, ana
ratify the Constitutional Amendment prohib
iting slavery evermore, but she must also re
pudiate " every dollar of indebtedness emi
tted to aid in carrying on the Rebellion." It
was he who ordered the dispersion by mili
tary force of any Legislatures choseu uuder
the" Rebellion which should assume power to
make laws after the rebellion had fallen. It
was he who referred to Congress all inquiries
to the probability of Representatives from
States lately in revolt being admitted to
seats in either House', and suggested that
they should present their credentials, not at
tlie organizing of Congress,' but afterward.
And finally, it was lie, and not Congress,
who suggesteel to his Gov. Sharkey of Miss
" If you could extenel the elective franchise
to all "persons of color who can read the
Constitutson of the United States in English
and write their names, anel to all persons of
color who own real estate vulucd at not h:ss
than $250 and pay taxes thereon, you would
completely disarm the adversary, and set an
example that other States will follow."'
If, then, there be any controversy as to the
right of the loyal States to exact conditions
and require guaranties of those which plung
ed madly into Secession and Rebellion, the
supporters respectively of Andrew Johnson
anel of Congress cannot be antagonist parties
to that contest, since their recorel places tbem
on the same side.
It being thus agreed that conditions of
restoration and guarantiees against future re
bellion may be exacted of the States lately in
revolt, the right of Congress to a voice in
prescribing those conditions and in shaping
those guaranties is plainly iucontestibk'.
Whether it take the shape of law or of a
constitutional ainenelment, the action of
Congress is vital. Even if they were to f te
settleel by treaty, the ratification of the Sen
ate, by a two-thirds vote, would he indispen
sable. There is nothing in the Federal con
stitution, nor in the nature of the case, that
countenances an Executive monopoly of this
What, then, is the ground of complaint
against Congress ?
It is charged that, the action of the two
Houses wits tardy and hesitating. Consider
with how many embarrassments and difficul
ties the problem is beset, and you will not
wonder that months were required to devise,
perfect, anel pass, by a two-thirds vote in ei
ther House, a just and safe plan of recon
struction. Yet the plan has been matured. It. has
passed the Senate by 83 to 11, and the House
by 138 to 36. It is now fairly before the
country, having already been ratified by the
Legislatures of several States and rejectcel by
none. Under it, the State of Tennessee has
been formally restored to all the privileges
she forfeited by Rebellion, including repre
sentation in either House of Congress. And
the door thus passed through stands invi
tingly open to all who linger without.
Are the conditions thus proscribed intoler
oble, or even humiliating ? They are in sub
I. All persons born or naturalized in this
country are henceforth citizens of the United
States, and shall enjoy all the rights of citi
zens evermore ; and no State shall have pow
er to contravene this most righteous and neces
II. While the States claim and exercise the
power of denying the elective franchise to a
part of their people, the weight of each State
in the Union shall be measured by and baseel
upon its enfranchised population. If any
State shall choose, for no crime, to deny po
litical rights to any race or caste, it must no
longer count that race or caste as a basis of
political power in the Union.
III. He who once held office on the
strength of his solemn oath to support the
Federal Constitution, and has nevertheless
fosesworn himself and treasonably plotted to
subvert the Constitution, shall" henceforth
hold no political office till Congress, by a
two-thirds vote, shall remove or modify the
IV. The National debt shall be in nowise
repudiated nor invalidated ; and no debt in
curred in support of the Rebellion shall ever
be assumed or paid by any State ; nor shall
payment be made for the loss or einancipa
pation of any slave.
V. Congress shall have no: power to en
force these guaranties by appropriate legisla
tion. Such, fellow-Citizens, are the conditions of
reconstruction proposed by Congress and al
ready accepted by the loyal Legislature of
Tennessee. Are they harsh or degrading?
Do you discern therein a dispostion to tram
ple on the prostrate, or push an advantage to
the uttermost ? Do they , embody aught of
vengeance, or any confiscation but that of
slavery f We-flolicit your candid, impartial
j Wht. is intended by the "third section is
simply - to give Loyalty a fair start in the
reconstructed States. K Under tlm Johnson
poKcy,the rebels Viioopolize.pwer and place
even"iri communities where they arc decided
ly outnumbered.. .'.Their? Generals jmd.Gov
ernors are members elect to Congress; their
Colonels.and Majors fill the Legislatures, anel
officiate as Sheriffs.; 'Not'oiily-are the, stead
lastly loyal proscribed, but even stay-at home
rebels have little chance in competition with
those w ho fought to subvert the Union.
When this rebel monopoly of office shall
have been broken up and loyalty to the
Union shall have become general and hearty.
Congress may remove the disability, and will
doubtless make haste to do so.
We do not perceive that the justice or fit
ness of the fourth section prescribing that
the Union public debt shall be promptly met,
but that of the rebel Confederacy never
i3 seriously contested.
There remains, then, but the second sec
tion, which prescribes in substance that pe
litical power in the Union shall henceforth
lie based only on that portion of the people
of each State" who are deemed by its Consti
tion fit despositories of such power. In oth
er worels : A State which chooses to holel
part of its population in ignorance and vassa
lage powerless, uneducated, unenfranchised
shall not count that portion to balance the
educated, intelligent, enfranchised citizens of
We do not propose to argue the justice of
this proposition. As well argue the shape ot
a cube or the correctness of the multiplica
tion table. He who does not feel that this
is simple and milelly just, would not be per
suaded through one rose from the dead to
convince him. That there arc those among
us who would not have it ratified, sadly de
monstrates that the good work of emancipa
tion is not yet complete.
"But," say some, " this section is designed
to coerce the South into according suil'rage
to her blacks." Not so, we reply ; but only
to notify her ruling caste that we will no
longer bribe them to keep their blacks in
serfdom. An aristocracy rarely surrenders
its privileges, no matter how oppressive,from
abstract devotion to justice and right. It
must have cogent, palpable reasons for so do
ing. We say, therefore, to South Carolina,
" If you persitently restrict all power to your
300.000 Whites, we must insist that these no
longer balance, in Oonsrress and the choice
of President, 700,000 Northern White free
men, but only 300,000. If you keep your
Blacks evermore in serfdom, it must not be
because we tempted you so to do and rewartl
ed you for so doing.'
Fellow-citizens of every State, but espe
cially of those soon to holel elections ! we en
treat your earnest, constant heed to the grave
questions now at issue. If those who so wan
tonly plunged the Union into civil war shall
be allowed by j-ou to dictate the terms of
reconstruction, you will have hecdleesly sown
the bitter seeds ot future rebellions and
blooely strife. Already, you are threatened
with a recosrnition by the President of a
sham Congress made up of the fictions
which recentlv coalesced at Philadelphia on
a platform of .Tihnsonism a Congress con
stituted by nullifying and overriding a plain
law ot the land a Congress wholly inspired
from the White House, and appealing to the
sword alone for support. So glaring an at
tempt at usurpation wonlel be even more
criminal than absurd. Happily, the people,
by electing an overwhelming majority of
thoroughly loyal representatives, are render-inj-
its initiation impossible.
We cannot close without a mo3t deserved
tribute to the general fidelity wherewith, in
view of the President's defection, the srreat
body of the peopie, anel even of the Fe-deral
ofiice-hoklers. stand fast by their convictions
and their principles. The boundless patron
age of the Executive, though most unscrup
ulously wielded against those to whose votes
he owes it, has corrupted very few, either of
those who shared or of those who would have
glaelly sharetl in its enjoyment. Not one of
the twenty-two States which voted to
elect Abraham Lincoln has given in its adhe
sion to the President's policy ; while New
Jersey the only free State that voted against
him has added herself to their number.
Our great war. has taught us impressively
the peril of injustice ; and the lesson has
sunk eleep into millions of hearts. The
American people, chastened by suffering, are
wiser and nobler than they were, with a
quicker and more open ear for every gener
ous suggestion. The fearful lessons of Mem
phis and New Orleans have not been lost on
them, as is proved by the recent elections in
Vermont antlMaine. We cherish no shadow of
doubt that Pa. Oo. Ind. anel la. first, then

The Raleigh Sentinel is rapidly sinking
into the use of that low, vulgar slang which
is the offspring of a vitiated taste, and nev

it as well as to disgrace the public press.
We regret to see this, but it is no more than
was prophesied of it when it was first given
out that the present junior editor was to con
duct it. He wrote the Raleigh Register and
the Whig party to death some years ago,
and the Sentinel and its party will share the
same fate, unless its editorial colums are
speedily confided to a more competent and

Smothered by a Cat. At Appleford,
Mass., a few days ago, a young chilel was
smothered to death in a very singular man
ner, according to a Boston paper. A pet
cat jumped upon the cradle and lay down
quietly on the infant's face while the latter
was sleeping. The mother, who was sitting
near, was pleased with this exhibition of the
cat's affection, and went and called a neigh
bor to come and see them lying thus quiet

that the child had ceased to breathe.

ALFRED DOCK ERY,
Of Richmond County.
Election Thursday 18th of October.
Raleigh National Bank of North
At a meeting of the Directors of this Bank,
held on the 2otht inst. we learn that Col Jos.
S. Cannon, having removed to Norfolk, Va.,
tendered his resignation as a member of the
Board, and that W. II. Willard, Esq., was
elected to fill the vacancy.
Also, that the President, Mr. Geo. W.
Swepson, having determined not to movehis
residence to Raleigh, resigned his posit ion?
whereupon Robt. W. Pulliam of the House
of Pulliam, Jones & Co., was chosen to fill
the position thus made vacant. The Board
of Directors now consists of R. W, Pulliaim
Presielent, Geo. W. Swepson, Cyrus P. Men
denhall, W. H. Willard. and W. B. Gulick,
We learn also that the stock of the Bank
has been raised to $73,000 by the increased
subscription of the original stockholders and
the addition of new stock, and that it is pro
posed to increase the capital stock immedi
ately to one hundred thousand dollars.
Persons wishing to make an investment of
this kind, can call at the Bank, where full in
formation can be obtained.
The places of Messrs. Swepson and Cannon,
well-informed as they arc in financial affairs,
will be well supplied by Col. Pulliam and
Mr. Willard. We are glad to record the fact
that this institution is prospering. We trust
the capital will le increased to $100,000.
We would be glad to see it raised to $500,
000. We know the fact that this institution
is doing all i:i its power to accommodate our
people and to increase the circulation.
We are gratified to learn that Mr. Willard
feels quite sure that the he will be able to es
tablish his manufactory of cotton good3 in
this City. Our community, and indeed our
State, will owe much to his enterprise and
Dockery and the Union !
We learn from friends in Craven and Carte-ret
that the nomination of Gen. Dockery is
well received in that quarter, anel that the
Union cause is rapidly gaining strength.

In the second place, there is no proposi
tion before the country to disfranchise whites
or enfranchise negroes. But if the radicals

white voter, should not be ratified, reorgani

The Asheville ITetcs says M. Patton, Esq.,
who was a delegate to the Raymond Phila
delphia Convention, recently made a speech
in that place, in which he dealt the Howard
amendment " some heavy blows." Mr. Pat

He is, himself, a Southern Jeff. Davis radi
cal. He voted to senel the last poor boy to
the war, to be slaughtered to builel up
Southern radicalism, ne ought to be thank

not tell the whole truth to the people ?
Why did he not say, " Fellcw-citizens, the
man who was ray leader and spokesman at
Philadelphia, voted in Congress for the
Howard amendment. I endorsed the amend
ment when I was in Philadelphia, by en
dorsing him ; but in Buncombe, I am op
posed to the amendment." That would have
been the truth, but truth is never told when
the object is to gull and mislead the people
Let the Unionists of Buncombe keep an eye
on M. Patton.
R. C. Badger, Esq.
Mr. Badger, having been nominated for

which he says that owing to the engage

That his chief employment has been to
rip up and destroy the President's plan to
turn Union men out of office, and to reno

has done any thing to benefit the State to .

Tha Ralcisrh Sentinel and Index, in reply
to our article Jast week about using the State
Capitol for. public-" Concerts,, Lectures. &c.,
say that there is no; "other ' suitable Building
in Raleigb, and that the officers of the: Capi
tol have felt obliged,- owing to the condi
tion of the citv, io admit lectures, concerts,
&c., for strictly ,1x-uevolent purposes," and.
that the parties who use the Halls bear the
expense of lighting, cleaning up, &c. We
aTe aware that it has been no unusual thing
for the Capitol to be thti3 used ; and the
present State officers are no more to blame
than their predecessors ; but precedent docs
not always make right. The Sentinel says
that a public hall is in process of construc
tion, and intimates that when it is comple
ted, there will be no uecessity for using the
Capitol for concert purpose's. We are grati
fied, therefore, to believe that the bad habit
is to be discontinued. Clmrlotte Democrat.
We take issue with all of our above co
temporaries in this respect. The Commons
and Senate chambers ought never to be used
except for great State or National purposes.
Our cotemporary of the Democrat is mista
ken in conceding that the Capitol has been
used heretofore for the insignificant purposes
for which it is now used by permission of Gov.
Worth. Mr. Everett delivered his great ora
tion in the Commons Hall, and it has been
used once, we believe, for the celebration of
the fourth of July ; but Gov. Worth litis es
tablisheel a new rule, under which every
straggler is permitted to pitch his pipes,
thumb pianos, anel hang his pictures in the
Commons Hall. A week or two since, a
young man of the name of Wheat, we be
lieve, gave a concert in the Commons Hall,
in the course of which he significantly said
he would play a medley of the national airs
of England, France, the Confederate Stites,
&c, omitting the airs of the United States.
The attempted slight to the Uniteel States
was so marked and palpable that several
Unionists rose anel withdrew, whereupon
they were hissed by a part of the audience.
This circumstance shoulel have led to the
prompt closing of the Capitol against all
such wandering performers, but it did not.
On Monday night last, by permission of
Gov. Worth, the Hall -was occupied by a
wandering showman with some dissolving
views. Some of these views are of battle
scenes. We learn that, upon the close of the
exhibition of these things at Chapel Hill,
"the boys" gave three cheers for Jeff. Davis.
The public will pere-eive, from this incident,
what sort of milk there is in this cocoa-nut.
It is very coolly claimed, by those partizans
who are now in possession of the State gov
ernment, aud State property, that it is not
expeelient to close the Capitol against these
exhibitions until a suitable Town Hall shall
have been constructed for them. We are
not surprised at this claim. It is in keeping
with the conduct of the clique which has so
long ridelen and oppressed our people. Gov.
Vance acteel, during his term of office, a3 it
the State property belonged to him anel his
particular friends ; and Gov. Worth seems
to be pursuing the same course. The Capi
tol should be devoted solely to State and
National purposes. No one should be per
mitted to desecrate it with his footsteps who
would inculcate" sectional sentiments, or re
flect, in the most remote degree, on our glo
rious national government.

Ifewtt are excited. In their last issue they
" We trust that every voter this State
will go to the polls on that day, and let the
majority lor Worth be decisive say G0,000,
and if this vote is to keep us exit of the
Union GO years longer, let us give it, and
jjrove by acts, that though defeated in the
field, we have not forgotten our rights, as
freemen ; and willing, though we be, to get
back into the Union upon tiie plans sugges
teel by thet President, we are equally willing
to undergo the vwwation of territorial gov
ernment, before we will be tl riven by radicals,
as a flock of sheep- to be murdered at their
will and pleasure."

We have no idea that mir old friend " June"'

rather too long a time.
By the way, do our cotemporaries of the
News know that the " radical," Thaddeus
Stevens, did all he could to defeat the How
ard amendment, and that their great gun,
Henry J. Raymond, voted for it ? Facts.

We make the following extract frmn a
letter recently received freina a friend in Mc
Dowell County :

of McDowell recently, and consieler the crop

some from the effects of the drouth. I think

Rude Treatment of a Cocpi.b of Con
federate Soldiers. We learn that a few
weeks since two maimed soldiers, Robert C.
Tilly and Henry Pickett, returning from
Raleigh, where they bad been to get artifi
cial limbs, attempted to get on the cars,
when ttie following dialogue occurred:
" Conductor' Where are you going ? Sol
dier To Durham's. Conductor Not on this
coach. This coach is for gentlemen. You
may ride in yonder car," pointing to an olA
dirty 1kx that had been attached for the
brakemen to ride in.
We infer from th letter addressed to us,
that these maimed soldiers had to do as
they were told, in order to get home. These
maimed veterans arc entitled to respect and
sympathy. They would have received more
respect and attention than they did in this
instance, if they had been travelling in
Maine or Michigan. We do not know who
the Conductor was. If we have done him
injustice, we will cheerfully set him right
before the public.
Extract from a letter to the Editors, dated
Wilmington, Sept. 23, 1866, :
" I am much pleased with the nomination
of Gen Dockery lor Governor.- I trust he
will canvass up to the day f election. It

The Newbern'- Commercial says ' that the

It further states, that it is informed, that
the mover in this matter is a certain "jack-leg-lawyer,"
not a native of Carteret. We
observe by the proceedings of the Loyalists
Convention in this city, that one "V. J.
Doughty, one of the Secretaries, represented
Carteret. Is Mr. Doughty the author of the
above ? If he is not, he ought to disclaim
it, as the remarks of the VoutmercUil look
rather pointedly at him Sentincl.
Tiie above is a mean and cowardly attemp',
by reconstruct eel traitors, to injure a worthy
anel loyal young man. Mr. Doughty never
posted any such Card. He had previously
issued a call for a meeting in Beaufort to ap
point delegates to the meeting in Raleigh,
whereupon some blackguard posted the
above Card, as a reflect iou on the Union men
of that place.
But it 13 all the same to the Commercial
and Sentinel. They would hesitate at noth
ing to effect their ends. They riot in calum
ny, slang, and vituperation. Any one who
will act with them, no matter what his prin
ciples may be, is all right ; and those, no
matter how pure or upright, who reluse to
act with them, are slandered and villified.
The Commercial and Sentinel would jump at
negro suffrage to-morrow, if they could re
tain power in this State in no other way.
They would do anything, or submit to any
thing, for the sake of offices and spoils.
Men who feel in their hearts, as they do, that
they hare deliberately ruined their country
that by their conduct they have freeel the
slaves, and made them the equals of the
whites before the law, do well to talk about
dignity ad further" humiliation I All these
troubles about the negro are to be traced to
just such persons. If they liad not set him
free by their secession, and by fighting the
United States when there was no hope for
success, but merely to gratify the vengeanco
and hatreel which boiled in their hearts, the
people would have had none of this trouble
above negro testimony and negro suffrage.
They did not intend to do this oh no !
But they did it, and now they want to rulo
and ruin the people again ! What voter,
with a thimble full of brains, will trust them ?
Since the above was prepared and put in
t3'pe, we have" received the following com
munication from Mr." Doughty, exposing
this s aader against him by the Commercial
Messrs. Editors of Standard : ask a
small space in your paper to repel the foul
aspersions and disgusting falsehoods con
tained in a- Card published in the Newbern

The above notice was posted up ttt the
time and place, as stated by the Commercial.
It is well understood by the citizens of Beau
fort, that it was done by some unknown
secessionist, as an attempt, to ridicule the
If the Sentinel and Commercial bare any
regard for truth, or any respect-for them
selves, they will correct this matter. I am
slow to believe they are so lost to every seuso
of justice and shame, as to have deliberately
ccmcoeted the above for the purpose of inju
ring me certainly not the Sentinel.
I expected, by attending the Convention
in Raleigh, on the 20th inst., to. incur the
disapprobation of thotie supporters of Mr.
Worth who are so intolerant as to wish to
force their opinions on others; but I did nut
expect them, in their zeal for the election of
Mr. Worth, to unilertake to . asperse the
private character of any person in that Con
vention. As to the sentiment contained in the
anonymous notice referred to, which the
CommercUd and Sentinel wish, by a system
of hocus-pocus, to ascribe to me I consider
it beneath the dignity of a gentleman to re
quire an answer. I am a native of North
Carolina, resident in Carteret county three
years, aud I am well known to the peo
ple in the Eastern part of the State.
The Editor of the Commercial calls me a
jackleg lawyer, and says I am not a native
of Carteret county. It is strange how this
learned Aped'co should have gained s much
wisdom. He must know facts by intuitiou.
I never had any business with bin, nor do I,
expect any from him, as quacks never em
ploy each other. As to the latter proposi
tion, I presume I have as much right to
speak for the Union men of Carteret, as he
has to speak for the secessionists of Craven.
I thank you, Messrs. Editors, for this op
portunity to answer an unjustifiable attack
upon me, and humbly begging , the pardon
of the public, I promise hereafter to notice
nothing that these, secession papers may say
about me, unless they should be compliment

have I done, that the enemies of my country

Taxation to Pay the Rebel Debt.
Wc publish to-day the proceedings of at
meeting of citizens of Wilson County, pro
testing against being taxed to pay the rebel
debt. . I';
We learn that the County tax in Chowan,
has been raised to double the amount of the
State tax, for the purpose tf paying this,
debt. A friend writing us from Eelenton,
to The local tyranny of the State is what
we have to complain of here. The County
Court, composed wholly of men who partici
pateel in the rebellion, have doubled tiie
taxes upon our people, and imposed the bur
dens upon those least able to bear it. ' " I -enclose
you a tax bill, in which you will per
ceive that the County has levied just double
the State tax. This is not only oppressive,,
but is calculated to diminish the revenues ofi"
the State, for people will not list property
where such enormous exactions are made
upon it. IiKfeod, I do not think it was ever-
contemplated by the Convention r Legishi
lature that the power of a County Court
should exceed that of the taxing, power of?
the State." -..""...'.. ' - - .
If the leading war men, and others inter
ested in this debt, had absolute control in
