The New York Times on the Constitu
The New York Times, whose Editor, Mr.
Raymond, is the author of the address and
resolutions of the Philadelphia Convention
so much commended by the Sentinel and its
friends, Continus to urge the Howard amend
ment on the Southern States. In his issue
of the 26th September, Mr. Raymond says:
" To any Northern man of the least power
of weighing future results, there can be no
doubt of the immense benefits which will
result to the nation from the acceptance of
the amendment. We have repeatedly stated
them. But some of them are included in
the very objections which we have been an
swering, and deserve attention. The Free
States ought to be able to exclude certain
persons from the South from taking seats in
our National Legislature. It would- be a
mockery to the patriotic dead, and an insult
to the hosts of living, who ha.ee sacrificed so
much to put down, this rebellion, to see such
men a Jefferson Davis or Mr. Benjamin, or
numbers of others, some stained with, tlic blood
of the innocent, and all promoters and lead
ers of the insurrection, taking their seats again,
in tie kails of the Capitol. We have always
urged that it is very desirable to break up
the old leaders of Secession at tJie South, and
the third section of the Amendment has a
tendency to accomplish this. We believe that
all conservative and patriotic men at the
North will soon acknowledge the great im
portance of the Constitutional Amendment,
and we have great hopes that in time the
South will accept it"
What has the Sentinel to say in reply to

With the abolition of slavery the three

not adopted. The population of the Nortli

allotted to these States is 241. Dividing

Special Dispatch to the N. Y. Tribune.
Richmond, va., Sept, 28, 1866.
It is generaly understood here that
Jefferson Davis will not be tried either
in November or October, and it is pos
itively stated that his counsel will be
notified of that feet to-morrow. The
United States District Court will prob
ably be held in this city and at Norfolk
in November, and the Circuit Court
may be held here at the same time, but
i1 aS Tet ancertain whether the coun
cil for Mr. Davis will appear there or
not. It is said that Judge Underwood
is undecided about coming to this city,
as he is satisfied that there has been a
conspiracy to assassinate him. -
t 'or the' Standard.05""
To Jonathan Worth, Esq., Governor of
You were appointed last year, after peace
had been wrested from the enemies of your
country, by the Provisional Governor, to the
former office held by you as Secretary of the
Treasury Department of the State, because
you were well known to have been, at the
time, an unconditional Union man. Your
appointment was approved by the President.
Your whole past record throughout the war,
and for years previous, had pronounced you
an unconditional Union man. Every one
who knew you, who had the slightest ac
quaintanceship, pronounced you an uncon
ditional Union man ! You opposed, so far
as was permitted by the despotic au
thorities at Richmond, every thing that was
done by that usurped government. This, at
the time, was well known to all your former
You were elected Senator from the coun
ties of Randolph and Alamance, in 1860 and
1861, and you opposed every thing that was
proposed by the avowed enemies of your
country, to bring about the late rebellion.
You voted on some questions alone, or but
with two other Senators. Your garments
then were undefiled. Your patriotic con
duct was watched and marked by every
lover of his country. These things are well
You now have discarded, almost without
exception, all those former friends of yours,
and friends of your government. And you
to-dav stand affiliated with those who dif
fered with your whole past political history,
saving a few noted instances of men who re
mained firm up to but a short period before
the war closed, and who, solely, through
sympathy for a down-trodden people, lost
their better judgment. But you still re
mained firmly attached to your former prin
ciples. Where do you now stand ? Are you not
now opposed, and stand committed, as op
posed to following the only path opened, by
the law-making power of your country, that
will lead you back to the good government
of your fathers ?
You were raised a Quaker. You were
from infancy, made to understand the hor
rors attending warfare ; that Peace for na
tions, as well as individuals, was best for
their welfare and true happiness. That any
kind of peace was far better, and far wiser,
than any kind of war. This is a holy and
good creed, and was the fundamental prin
ciple in your education.
Alas 1 where do you stand to-day ? Cheek
and shoulder with those who were your life
time opponents, and avowed enemies to your
earlier teachings. And who did desire and
desire to-day, to promote commotion instead
of harmony discord instead of Peace.
Whose dailv conduct proves that they are as
anxious as they were six years ago, to pre
vent peace and reconciliation. W hose words
and teachings, every day show that they
wish and hope for another civil war. They
may expect it to be removed farther from
tlieir own hearth-stones. But they have
that rancor and hate implanted in their
breasts, that they long to see the other sec
tion of their country, as utterly destroyed
and impoverished, as their own has been;
and that, too, by their own traitorous con
duct. None of your former friends, those
whose friendship and esteem are worth hav
ing, can, with proper respect for their own
principles and yours, now sustain you.
Your future dependence must be upon those
disaffected to the Government, and I grieve
to tell vou, for vour own sake, and that of
your State, that t,here may be enough voters
in the present anomalous condition of affairs
to acam elect you. Uut will any tried and
true friends of yours be among that num-
You say every day, "What have I done
that there should be anv opposition to me?
Look at my past record have I not always
been for the Union ?"' That I have already
admitted is true. But are vou for the Union
now ? Do vou desire now that North-Caro
lina should be restored, and immediately, to
all her past immunities, and privileges, and
franchizes under the .National Government

beyond that by far, of the " full office" of
complete union and original community of
.North-Carolina, your native state and mine,
with that benign government, that, as you
have oftentimes confessed, has always acted
like a good and devoted mother towards her ?
Governor, I have ever acted with you in
all political questions of policy, l our po
litical enemies have always been my foes.
have a right to address you as a friend, I have
admired you, lor your many sterling virtues.
We have both believed that those partizans.
who whould ruin or rule,! have been the most
destructive agents in bringing about, bv their
States-rights constructions of the shield of
all our political liberties, the present lamen
ble condition of ourcountrv. And we both
believed that the party was held together by
but one cement and that was public plun
der. That they were ever athirst and ah lin
gered for all the loaves and fishes that were
swimming in the prolific brooks of officiali
ty in the lucrative positions of the country,
I then feel that we can reason together as
past and present friends. Our past lives are
indissolubly united by history, as members of
that old party that has passed away, but
which still leaves on the pages of the past,
the bright refulgence of true glory. That
party that could discard self, but never dis
carded the good of the whole country. That
paity that was so gallantly led 6n to victory
and commanded with so much true heart
and hope in defeat. That party whose very
life and soul seemed to depend, upon but one
redoubtable champion, the finished produc
tion of two great commonwealths, Kentucky
and Virginia. W e hoth belonged to that party,
the death of whose chieftain it never but a
short time survived. His words in defeat on
one occasion will never die, I recall them now
to your attention. He tout you and me and
the continent " That it was far better to be
right, than to be President." Are vou not
neglecting this golden line of Patriotism ?
And do you purpose to angle, in these decep
tive and foul waters of treason, altogether in
different as to the take " be it cat or trout ?"'
Are not these the same men, now your com
panions on these doubtful waters ot remu
neration, in the same boat, that your great
and good captain, ever taught you and all of
us, would in certain time not remote lead the
country to its de: trui tion ?
And you know that this, met your full and
willing approbation. And I ask you now,
did not these men your present copartners
co-operating with other traitors, whom you
have all along said, with your fellow Caroli
nian, " should be punished and impoverish
ed ?" Do you not affiliate and recieve the
willing support of these traitors, you so cor
dially hated and despised, and proclaimed
oftenjto friend and foe ? Can not you now
discern their hypocrisy and deceit, that they
are simply using you as a blind, on account
of your well known Unionism to save their
necks from the halter, and their worldly
possessions from just confiscation ?
JJo not your tormer toes now serving their
purposes and vou. traitorously as they used
their country, claim the rebellion itself does
not, and should not affect the relations of a
State to the Union, and that a State may
fight five years to destroy the Union, and
then by the mere act of throwing down her
arms take full part in the government ? Do
you not admit that this hypothesis, if recog
nised as an elementary principle by any con
siderable numbers, would be a perpetual in
centive to treason ? For it may be argued
if Rebellion succeeds it is safe, and if it fails,
it is still the more secure. You must admit
that State rights can by no possibility mean
such national wrongs ns these. Yet your
affiliators so contend. This can not surely
lucct your approval, any more than the other j
heresy of theirs, which destroyed the State
that, secession was a peaceable and' constitu
tional step, and would not lead to war. You
never agreed to this latter proposition; do
you agree with these same persons now, in
the other ? I do not believe it. Your whole
past conduct contradicts any such assump

The Broken Atlantic Cable Voices
from the Sea.
The London Spectator tells the following
singular and most interesting story :
"Night and day fora wholevear. an'electri
cian has always been on duty watching the
tiny ray of light through which the signals
are given, and twice every day the whole
length of wire one thousand two hundred
and forty miles, has been tested for conduc
tivity and insulation. . The object
of observing the ray of light was of course
not any expectation of a message, but sym
ply to keep an accurate record of the condi
tion ot the wire. Sometimes indeed wild in
coherent messages from the deep did come,
but these were merely the results of magnetic
storms and earth currents, which deflected
the galvenometer rapidly, and spelt the
most extraordinary words and sometimes
eTen s nterce of nonsense, upon the
graduated scale before the mirror. Sudden
ly last Saturday morning, at six o'clock,
while the light -was beinsr watched by Mr.
May, he observed a peculiar indication about
it which showed at once to his experienced
eye that a message was at hand.- In a few
minutes afterward the unsteady flickering
was changed to coherency, if we may use
such a term, and at once the cable began to
speak, to transmit, that is at reeular inter
vals, the appointed signals which indicated
human purpose and method at the other end
instead of the hurried signs, broken speech
and inarticulate cries of the still illiterate
Atlantic. After the long interval in which
it had brought us nothing but the moody
and often delirious mutterings of the sea,
stammering over its alphabet in vain, the
words " Canning to Glass. must have seem
ed like the first rational word uttered by a
high-fever patient, when the ravings have
ceased aud his consciousness returns."

BECAUSE OF AFFLICTION AND AGE,
which renders me incapable of continuing busi
ness, I now retire from the Book trade, leaving
my entire stock and interest in the hands of
Messrs. Branson & Farrar, except the publication
of the "N. C. Almanac," which I trust will be
received with the same favor as heretofore.
In retiring, I return my sincere thanks for the
very liberal patronage which the public has
chosen to bestow upon me during the last half
century the length of time which I have been
engaged in this State and cheerfully recommend
to mv old friends and patrons, my successors,
Messrs. Branson & Farrar.'by whom, I am sure
they will be satisfactorily accommodated.
Mr. H. D. Coley, so well known to the Book
trade and to the public, and so long engaged in
business with me, will be retained as an assistant
in the business of Messrs. Branson & Farrar. He
invites his old friends to call upon him. - F .
