Reduction in Price of the American

In consequence of the recent great improve
ments in our facilities for manufacturing we have
reduced our prices to as low a point as they can
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 test of ten years and the
manufacture and sale of
More than 200,000 Watches
havegiven 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 sol.l in
the United States. The different grades are dis
tinguished by the following trade-marks on the
L "American Watch Co." Waltham, Mass.
" Appleton, Tracy & Co." Waltham, Mass.
"P. S. Bartlett," Waltham, Mass.
Our Ladies' Watch, of first quality, is

Our next quality ol Ladies' Watch is named
" P. S. Bartlett," Waltham, Mass. These
watches are tarnished in a great variety
of sizes ai d styles of cases.
The American Watch Co., of Waltham, Mass.
authorize us to state that without distinction of
trade-marks or price,
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 Com-
pavy or their agents, 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.
Caution. The public are cautioned to buy
only of respectable dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.

Yet as gold the soldiers received it ; .
It looked in our eyes a promise to pay,
And each patriot soldier believed u.
But the faith that was in us was strong

And these little checks represented the
That our suffering veterans earned.

On taking the Chair, as President of

My Feixow-Citizens ant Ladies
i.-r 1 J 1
axd wentlemait: sso one uouiu. u
much more surprised than myself at be
ing thus called upon to preside over the
deliberations of this great body. For
myself, I had fully and heartily coinci
ded with what has been said to you by
the distinsrnised Chairman of the Com
mittee on Permanent Organization, that
in the great East from which we have
been accustomed to receive leadership
and instruction, we should find any one
who would have better claims to this
position than myself ; and in the great
"West only that distinguished Chief
whom I, with many others have delight
ed to follow Gen. Logan would have
been the choice of my own heart. But
many another would have seemed to
me more fit and proper for this posi
tion. The only merit I can claim is
that of the most unbounded sympathy
with every man who has worn the blue.
Applause. From the beginning of the
war to the surrender of the last Rebel
1 1 1
army, my neart ana my wora nave
been with them, and Hence my own
services couia make me ieei at nome
with you. I feel that I am indeed at
home. I feel further, my comrades,
that we are here one in sentiment, and
that whether the Presidency of this or
ganization had fallen tipon one from the
East or the West, so that he were a
soldier of the great Republic, he would
have its support. Applause. "We are
here as citizens soldiers ; and I remem
ber a time, and perhaps our distingu ish
ed friend, the Chairman of the Commit
tee on Permanent Organization, will
also remember the time, in some of the
rather dark days of 1862, when it was
debated in this country, whether or not
the army, which seemed able to save
the Republic, could under any circum
stances be made the tool of any Chief,
in or out of the army, to destroy those
liberties. And I know that there were
men in the Army of the Potomac and
in the Army of the Great West ; there
were men everywhere to spring up and
say: Soldiers of the American Republic
are citizens first and soldiers afterward
cheers ; that they recognized that
their paramount duty is the duty they
owe to their country ; that no allegiance
to a military or political chief couid ev
er under any circumstances, make them
forget that they have bound themselves
ana pledged their lives and honor to
the support of the Government against
all its enemies. So long as there is the
least danger that that Government
shall fall or even be imperiled, if any
foe within or foe without, whether he
be a military man or whatever may be
his political sentiments, should strike
at the perpetuity of this nation, the ar
my of the Republic will be found ar
rayed as one man against all such foes.
It is a great satisfaction to me to meet
here not only our comrades, of the Vol
unteer Army and "Volunteer Navy, but
also our comrades of the Regular Armj '
and Regular Navy. We have come t
thank God to-day, that although ther
are instances in which men who hav
faithfully served the country throng
the war may have been brought to o '
cupy such unfortunate positions th:
they may seem to have been boug
by the hope of preferment : vet tl
great mass ot all those who have wo?
our uniform, whether it has been tl
uniform of our boys in blue, on land
water, are true in the principles th -
were fighting for during the war. A ' -plause.
The old Proverb says, "Exct . -tions
prove the rule," and so I think v ,
at least, who live in Ohio, and ha 3
seen how pitiful the array of exceptio 3
has been, are prepared to avow a 1
prove that they are only such as ma i 3
the most positive proof of the ru .
Applause. As citizen-soldiers, th.
we meet, determined that what has b(
done during the war shall continue
bear its fruit ; that our labor, toil, a
blood, shall not have been wasted ; tl
the Union which our fathers have taug
us to love with patriotic devotion sh
ever continue to exist and grow m
and more vigorous upon free principl
We recognize the fact that about t

of the United States which organized

great statemanship in providing the

what would, the Union must and would
be preserved. I say the citizen soldiery
ot this country recognize the uongress
of the United States as the rspresenta-
. tive Government of the country. Ap
plause.! 1 think 1 only interpret the
sentiment of all my comrades when I
say we believe another thing to be true,
and that is that this Government is the
Government in fact of the whole coun
try; the Representatives and Senators of
the people in C-ongress assembled now
as an organized body, recognized by
us and the whole world as the Uonarress
of the people, and the only persons
who may rightfully, by the powers
given them by the people, determine the
mode and manner in which their success
ors shall take their seats ; in other words,
that it is only by the legislative action of
the law-making power and obedience
to the laws as they exist at present that
there can be any provision made with
regard to the organization of a succeed
ing Congress. We say that if every
one within the U nion those high in au
thority as well as the humblest citizen
will thus submit to themselves to the
law of the land, there need be no trouble,
An appeal to the citizens of the country is
always open to those who are dissatis
fied with the existing condition of things,
If they can succeed in changing the opin
ions of the people so that a representa
tion in Congress different from that
which we have heretofore sent, be sent
there under existing tests, we
course bow to the will ol the people.
But we know, and all traitors know,
that the will 01 the people has been ex
pressed in the complexion and charac
ter of the existing Congress, and that
freely spoken will only be more loud
and more perfectly distinct on this sub
ject. Great applause. But I will not
detain you to discuss further these gen
eral questions. v e nave expressed
our faith that the proposition which has
been made by Congress for the settle
ment of all difficulties in the country, is
not only a wise policy, but one so truly
magnanimous that the whole world
stood in wonder that a people could un
der sucn circumstances be so magnani
mous to those they have conquered,
Ana wnen, tnereiore, we say we are
ready to stand by that decision of Con
gress, we only say, as soldiers, that we
follow the same flag and the same prin
cipals which we have lollowed through
the war. Now, my comrades, without
detaining you further, 1 must beg your
assistance in the performance of the du
ties which you have imposed upon me,
The army is not a good place to learn
parliamentary tactics, whatever else we
may learn, and, therefore, it becomes
necesary for me to appeal to you that
you will have such regard for my inexpe
rience and shortcomings as that the Jon
vention may run itself and that I may be
here in some sort as the figure-head in
representing this body. Applause.
The Constitutional Amendment Last
Chance for the South,
While the republican leaders and talkers
are soine round the country, like Cornwall
miners, with tallow candles in their caps, en
deavoring to shed light upon the crisis
through which the country is passing, we
have entirely eclipsed them by the calcium
illuminator we have introduced in the shape
of the constitutional amendment. It is now
very clear that it has been the policy of
Thad Stevens and his Jacobin followers to
keep this important amendment out of sight
as much as possible. It has been rarely dis
cussed in any of their councils, or at any
rate at those which have reached the ear and
eye of the public. They do not wish to have
it openly debated, nor do they desire that the
minds ol the people shall become familiar
with its justness and its ameliorating ten
dencies. Above all, they do not want the
South to accept it ; for they know if it does
their power will be lost and their rod of ter
ror broken. Stevens is not satisfied with the
amendment ; neither is Wade, Sumner, Banks,
Butler nor Boutwell. Neither is Kelley, of
Pennsylvania, nor Greeley, of the Tribune,
nor any others of the bitter radical stamp.
What these men want is for the South to re
ject or to spurn the amendment, and thus
compel the question ol restoration to go over
to the next Congress, which, they feel confi
dent, and not without reason, will be more
inimical to the South than the present one.
What, then, is the plain policy of the
South ? Clearly it is to accept, without hes
itancy or delay, the proposed amendment.
They certainly cannot expect to do any bet
ter with the present Congress and they must
not hope or expect for greater clemency from
the next. By all the signs of the times the
Fortieth Congress will be composed in part
of a fierce and revolutionary body of men.
In all the Eastern States, where the radicals
nave majorities, tne question upon nomina-
tions for Congress is not who is the most
moaeraie ui wuscrriiUTe, dui wuu is uie 1
-1 . m. ..... I
most radical. xne latter is invariably the
nominee. It is for this reason that such men
as Banks, Butler and Boutwell all formerly
Massachusetts democrats are so extreme
and violent in their anti-Southern views. In
this they but echo the sentiments of the people
they represent, and not to obey that senti
ment they know is to allow themselves to be
politically shelved for the remainder of their
lives. They are bent upon success, and the
motto of one of these men is, " Success is a
duty." -. .
Now, then, is the critical moment for the
South. The proposed constitutional amend
ment should be promptly accepted by them.
The present congress cannot refuse to ac
knowledge the fact and to restore them to
fraternal relationship in the Union. : It is in
a measure pledged to do this, and it has al
ready partially fulfilled its pledge by admit
ting Tennessee. ' Prom the next Congress the
South will have much to apprehend. - There
is great danger that the aims of the radicals
to disfranchise the whites, to confiscate and
apportion their property and to give univer-
sal and unrestricted suffrage to the blacks,
win tnen do accomplished. The Xregisiature
ofevery'u'therh &ta& '.should therefore be
immediately talledl ; together and the prdpo
sed constitutional amendment adopted Once
id Congress, they will hold the. balance.of.
power ra.the Houses and have their propor
tionate weight in the Senate. They will never
have a better chance .tor being restored to a
position in ;. the Union than: is now . offered,
them. ' We again eay, let them accept it.
S President Johnson should . .issue a procla
mation calling upon the Governors of the
several Southern States to convene their
Legislatures before next . December, and re
commend them to adopt the proposed amend
ment. This done, a new and effulgent
light will be shed over the whole Union,
from the brilliancy of which the radicals will,
with their tallow candles, pale into insignifi
cance. 2f. T. Herald.
Anecdotes of the Naturalist Water ton.
The Pall Mall Gazette says : " Dr.
Hobson, a Leeds' physician, has just
given to the world sundry reminiscen
ces of a most wonderful specimen of
muscular Christianity. The Christian
ity, indeed, is not precisely of the type
most in favor with the votaries of the
new school, but the muscularity of the
particular Christian in question throws
all the feats of novel and magazine
Christians altogether into the shade.
The late Charles Waterton, the York
shire squire-naturalist, the rider upon
crocodiles, and the ardent defender of
the Jesuits, is Dr. Hobson's hero, and
a unique hero he must have been. Dr.
Hobson declares that he saw him when
seventy-seven years of age scratch the
back part of his head with the great toe
of his right foot. If this is not enough
to make half the clowns in ihe London
theatres die of envy,they must be mus
cular Christians themselves.
" The crocodile-riding was one of Mr.
Waterton's humblest feats, for the brute
had been caught by an immense hook
baited with raw flesh, and was being

The course of the New York Herald and
of Raymond, should be to the South both a
reminder and a warning. It is a repetition
of the experiences of days not far remote.
The South was quiet while the North was
settling the problem whether it would be
true to its declarations and promises, and re
turn to the government of the Constitution.
But the Philadelphia Convention was called.
and the attendance of the South made a
test of that amicable spirit and good faith.
Raymond had everything there as he want

the address, he enlisted the South in their
support, and then went, to do what ? To

; TUESDAY. OCTOBER 1 866.
: NATIONAL UNION TICKET.
Of lUchmond Coiiiity.
Election on Thursday 18th of October.
Gen. Dockery Declines to be a Can
didate for Governor.
We regret to have to inform our readers
that Gen. Dockery declines to be a candidate
for Governor. The meeting which recom
mended Gen. Dockery had good reason to
holiptro. that. Vi wniild rim. hnt. on reflection.
mainly on account of the shortness of
time, and the fact that he could not even
make a partial canvass of the State, he has
declined. His friends will regret this, but,
under the circumstances, they will not com
plain of him for it.
We point with pride and pleasure to his
patriotic and admirable letter, which we
give below. Gen. Dockery was as much at
tached to the President's plan as any one,
and as anxious for its success ; yet he does
not close his eyes to the fact that this plan
has not been carried out, nor to the action
of the Congress and the Northern people,
which clearly shows that unless the Howard
amendment be promptly accepted, we may
look for the most stringent, and, it may be,
the most calamitous measures in the future.
Who is there that will say that Alfred Dock
ery would advise any thing which would de
grade or dishonor our people ? He has been
in the public service nearly forty years. His
good name all that he is, all that he has.
all he can hope for, identifies him insepara
bly with our people. He would have been
glad if our State had accepted the Presi
dent's plan in good faith, and thereby se
cured represenfcition in Congress; but as
this has not been done, and will not be done,
in all probability, he is prepared as a man of
sense to accept the next best thing he can
get. He now takes the ground,
First, That it is better to accept the How
ard amendment, and, under it, establish the
white basis with white voters, than to run
the risk of having tbe next Congress force
negro suffrage upon us.
Second, That it is better to proscribe tem
porarily a few office-holders, than to run tbe
risk of having one-third or one-half of our
people proscribed both as voters and office
holders, and our lands and houses confisca
ted and sold to pay the expenses of the war.
Third, That we can hope for no adequate
protection to our interests, and for no well
grounded prosperity, until our members are
admitted to their seats in Congress ; and as
an indispensable step to this, those members
elect who can not take the oath, should re
tire, and let members be elected who can
Such are the views in this crisis of one of
our purest and most sagacious public men.
He can have no motive to mislead the peo
ple. He is no office-seeker or office-holder.
He declines to be a candidate for office. He
is simply a well-wisher to his country, who
suggests the best means to extrieate the
country from the perils which surround it.
It 13 true, Gen. Dockery declines to be a
candidate, but the people have a right to
vote for him. Their minds have already
been turned to him, and they are anxious to
express their confidence in him at the ballot-
box. Let them do it. Let every Union
man in the State, and every citizen in tbe
State who desires to see the Union promptly
restored, vote fob ALFRED DOCKERY,
of Richmond County, for Governor. In
former days, it frequently happened that the
best men were chosen to office when they were
not candidates. The office sought the man
not the man the office. If it should be so
now, the strongest proof would be afforded
that the people, disregarding the politicians,
were taking their own affairs into their own
Raleigh, Sept. 21, 1866.
To the Hon. Alfred Dockery :
Dear Blb: The undersigned were ap
pointed a committee, by the Union Meeting
held in Raleigh on yesterday, the 20th, to in
form you ot your nomination lor the office of
Governor of Horth-Carolina, and to request
your acceptance of the same.
You were selected without a dissenting
voice as the most suitable citizen to repre
sent the Union sentiment of North-Carolina.
The restoration of the Union was felt by the
meeting to be the paramount, all-absorbing
question of the day. We have no doubt
you concur with us in this view, and we
trust the resolutions adopted by the meeting
will receive your approval.
With your assistance at the helm, tbe ship
of State, tbougn surrounded by breakers, on
every side, will yet weather the storm, and
reach the only safe haven for her people
the great national government founded by
Sincerely trusting, Sir, that you will ac
cept the nomination thus tendered, and de
vote what time is left to canvassing public
questions, we have the honor to be, with
high respect, Your obedient servants.

Tbe results of the recent eleetinno
North-Carolina have greatly damaowi
prospects of the State, in the restoration ol
its Governmental relations. Should thp an
tion and the spirit of the Legislature be in
tne same direction, it will greatly increase
the mischief already done, and mirrht i.

It is hoped the action and snirit mn?fa
ted by the Legislature 'Hill be so directe.l.n.
rather to repair than increase the difficulties
under which the State has already olaccd
.. Pres. of the United States.'
Mr. Johnson has not retracted nor even
qualified the above., He, holds the same
opinions now he held then. Gov. Worth
instead of having done any thing to concili
ate or please the President, has done all he
could to displease and, injure him, by rip
ping up and destroying his plan in North-
Carolina. Therefore, every citizen who may
vote for Worth trill vote to repudiate and
condemn Andrew Johnson. Mr. Johnson says
Gov. Worth and his adherents have " great-
1.x damaged" the cause of restoration in
North-Carolina. How, then, can a person
endorse Andrew Johnson by voting for Gov.
Will the Newt be good enough to attempt
to meet these points? .Will it publish the
above letter from the President ?
Gen. Dockery is no radical-.- He is not
even a member of 'the Republican party.
He is simply a National Union man. Gov.
Worth has been in office nine months, and
the State is further from being 'restored to
the Union than it was when he was inaugu
rated. We shall never get back under him.
Let us now try some one eke. T- Let . us try
Gen. Dockery. Will the News' attempt t
give us some good reason why this should
not be done?

ister says : " The hill Jtops of Pittsylvania

seen before. Such a tobacco crop, so exten
sive and yet of such superior quality, has
not been raised on these favored lands with
in the memory of the oldest among us."
Gen. Wright, of Georgia, says he was on
the Committee that - drafted the resolutions
in the Johnson Philadelphia Convention in
favor of duly rewarding Union Soldiers, and
that he took care to have them so worded as
not to commit the Government ; for, if the
South ever gets into power again, all pen
sions to Union Soldiers shall be cut off unless
the Confederate soldiers are put on the same

chiefly turned upon ' the Constitutional
Amendment, Mr. Colfax arguing that citizen
ship did not imply negro suffrage. Mr. Tur
pie opposed the Tariff, and seemed desirous
of making it a leading issue in the canvass.
