The Union State Mass Meeting assembled
in the citv of Raleish. the 30tn day 01 ep
tetnber, 1866, for the purpose of maintaining
and preserving tne organization 01 umuu
party, to tne enci mat me orate guYaumcm
of North-Carolina may be so administered
aa to secure the restoration and perpetuation
of the rights, privileges and immunities of
the people tnereot, ana tneir ionn 01 gov
ernment in harmony with the National Gov-
Arnment Errateful for the preservation of
that sentiment of nationality which is the
shield of the Constitution and the sure guar
antee of Republican form of government, do,
with a sincere desire for reconciliation, for
giveness and charity among all classes of
American people, wno were eimer engageu,
or involved in the late civil war, resolve
1. That only those men, without regard
to their antecedents, who are " unmistaka
bly loyal " to the government of the United
States, should be appointed or elected by
the people of North-Carolina to any office,
or place of trust or profit.
2. That, in order to secure the re-establishment
of the State in the Federal Union ;
the speedy restoration of all rights, privi
leges and immunities of her loyal citizens,
and the final adjustment of the governmen
tal relations of her whole people in harmony
with the National Government, the amend
ment proposed by the present Congress, as
article 14, to the Constitution of the United
States, as a condition precedent to these
ends, should be accepted and ratified by the
General Assembly of North-Carolina.
3. That, having full confidence in the jus
tice and magnanimity of Congress that upon
the ratification of said proposed amendment
the disability to hold, or to be eligible to
office imposed therein, will be, in every
proper case, removed without discrimination
as to any class or party of our fellow-citizens
on account of their antecedents, and that the
State of North-Carolina will be forthwith
re-admitted to the Union, we would respect
fully urge upon our whole people to con
sider, and demand that the same be ratified
by their representatives in the next General
4. That in the present anomalous state of
the country, without any provisions con
tained in our written Constitutions, either
State or National, or precedents in American
history to guide us safely in the great work
of restoring the relations of a State govern
ment ruptured by civil war in harmony with
the National Government, we desire and now
stand ready to co-operate, without obstinate
adherence to any special plan or policy oi
restoration, in any further action that in
the wisdom of Congress and the Executive
may be deemed necessary to guarantee to
the State of North-Carolina a Republican
form of government, and restore the Union.
5. That we profoundly regret the defec
tion of Gov. Worth from the Union cause,
his proscription for opinion's sake of Union
men from office, and the injurious influence
which the prominent instigators and actors
in the rebellion are exerting over him in his
official conduct. Wc cannot hope that the
State will be restored to the Union under
his auspices ; and, as we prefer principles to
men, and believe the restoration of the Uni
on to be more important and more vital to
the best interests of the State than every
thing else, we feel it to be our duty firmly
to oppose his re-election.
6. That having full confidence in the pa
triotism, ability, and sterling Unionism of
Gen. Alfred Dockery, of the County of
Richmond, we hereby unanimously recom
mend him to the people of North-Carolina,
as a suitable person to be chosen Governor
at the election, to be held on the 18th of
October next. Gen. Dockery is well known
as a firm and unflinching Union man. He
has had no connection with the causes that
led to our present unhappy condition, and
he has been true to the Union cause. His
interests as s farmer are identified with
those of the great body of our people. His
election in the present crisis would be a for
tunate 'circumstance for the people of the
State, and would do much with the loyal
people of the. North, to open the way for
our return to the Union.

Esq., Robert P. Dick, Esq., and other distin
guished Unionists, approving the object of
the meeting and expressing a warm prefer
ence for ALFRED DOCKERY for Governor.

ARE YOU SICK,
feeble and complain
ing ? Arc you out of or
der, with your system
deranged, and your feel
ings uncomfortable ?
These symptoms are of
ten the prelude to seri
ous illness. Some fit of
sicKness is creeping up
on you, and should be
averted by a timely use
of the right remedy. Take Ayer's Pills, and
cleanse out the disordered humors purify the
blood, and let the fluids move on unobstructed in
health again. They stimulate the functions of the
body into vigorous activity, purify the system
from the obstructions which make disease. A
cold settles somewhere in the body, and deran
ges its natural functions. These, if not relieved,
re-act upon themselves and the surrounding or
gans, producing general aggravation suffering
and derangement. While in this condition, take
Ayer's Pills, and see how directly they restore
the natural action of the system, and with it the
buoyant feeling of health again. What is true
and so apparent in this trivial and common com
plaint is also true in many of the deep-seated and
dangerous distempers. The same purgative effect
expels them. Caused by similar obstructions
and derangements of the natural functions of the
body, they are rapidly and many of them surely
cured by the same means. None who know the
virtue of these Pills will neglect to employ them
when suffering from the disorders they cure,
such as Headache, Foul Stomach, Dysentery,
Bilious Complaints, Indigestion, Derangement of
the Liver, Costiveness, Constipation, Heartburn,
Rheumatism, Dropsy, Worms and Suppression,
when taken in large doses.
They are Sugar-coated, so that the most sensi
tive can take them easily, and they are surely the
best purgative medicine yet discovered.
Ayer's Ague Cure,
FOR THE SPEEDY CURE OF
Intermittent Fever, or Fever and Ague,
Remittent Fever, Chill Fever, Dumb
Ague, Periodical Headache or Bilions
Headache, and Bilions Fevers, indeed
for the whole class of Diseases origi
nating in biliary Derangement, caused
by the malaria of miasmatic countries.
This remedy has rarely failed to cure the se
verest cases of Chills and Fever, and it has this
great advantage over other Ague medicines, that
it subdues the complaint without injury to the
patient. It contains no quinine or other delete
rious substance, nor does it produce quinism or
any injurious effect whatever. Shaking brothers
of the army and the west, try it and you will
endorse these assertions.
