posed Constitutional amendment at the com
insr session ? Or, will the State he readmit
ted into the federal Union at the next session
of Congress? These questions are becom

with more and more seriousness and anxious
solicitude. If the amendment be rejected by
the Assembly, it is assumed that the btate

ot the certainty of a controlling two-thirds
majority in the nest Congress to carry out

the government, can Union citizens whose
lives and fortunes and sacred honor" are
pledged to the destiny ot their country lon

perative duty of their representatives in the
next General Assembly to ratify the propos

permanent peace for our people. What then
is to be done ?
Let us first of all preserve organization for
any and every emergency. Let us peaceably
assemble to petition, to remonstrate, and if it
must be, to demand that the present state of

The masses of the people of North-Carolina
are beginning to be informed as to the

first love. They will make the comparative

Constitutional amendment from holding
office until two thirds of Congress might re
move their disability, stand aside out ot their
path back to their old homestead.
You and I. and numbers of others who
would be disabled by the amendment from
Lolding office, are willing to trust Congress,
or to forego the emoluments or honor of all

a number of heretofore " h.i li i'j men," poli

Organization is wliat is wanted in the State
to restore it to relations of harmony with the
national government. We need more presses
and more outspeaking and determined co

then for the next best au3thlng for restora

The Union must be restored with or with

More than 200,000 Watches
have given our productions the very highest rank
among time-keepers. Commencing with the de

the public became acquainted with their value,
until for months together, we have been unable
to supply the demand. We have repeatedly en

over three acres of ground, and give accommoda
