The Committee after due deliberation re
turned, and reported through their chairman,
G. F. Penland, Esq., the following Preamble
and Resolutions :
"Whereas, There is now (seemingly, un
fortunately for the country) an issue between
the Executive and Legislative departments
of the Government of the United States of
Whereas, It is right and proper, under
all circumstances, and more especially so,
when the great chart of liberty is endangered,
for the people, from whom all political power
is derived, and in whom all political power
is vested, to peaceably " assemble together,
to consult for their common good, to instruct
their representatives to apply to their Legis
lature for redress, &c. Therefore, be it
Resolved, That we, the discharged Federal
soldiers ad loyal Union citizens, of Western
North-Carolina, in Convention assembled
this day, recognize the hand of a kind Pro
vidence in vouchsafing to us our lives through
the dark perils of the past, in enabling the
friends of liberty to triumph over the ene
mies thereof, in preserving the Union of these
States as one, and inseparable, now and for
ever, and that we invoke the blessing of Di
vine Providence over all our deliberations
-through future life, and especially upon this,
our native land and country.
Resolved, That it is our most ardent desire
to see North-Carolina re-admitted to her for
mer position in the Union, at the earliest
practicable period consistent with the peace
and security of the citizens thereof, and of
permanent allegiance to the United States.
Resolved, That we recognize in the Con
gress of the United States, the law-making,
the war-making, and the peace-making
Resolved, That we will heartily co-operate
with Congress in the adoption of any mea
sure that it, in its wisdom and discretion,
may devise for the more complete re organ
ization of the rebellious States, and for their
Teadmittance to all the functions of the Gen
eral Government upon a loyal basis.
ResoheJ, That North-Carolina, as a State,
has " wasted her substance in riotous living,"
and treacherous conspiracy against the peace
and dignity of the nation, that it is her in
dispensable duty to return to her father's
house immediately, asking only a " servant's
Resolved, That only such as are now un
mistakably loyal to the United States Gov
ernment without regard to antecedents,
should -be appointed to any office within the
gift of the people of North-Carolina.
Resolved, That we recommend the adop
tion of the " Howard Amendment " to the
Constitution of the United States, as the
-shortest and most direct road to gain admit
tance therein ; but should the Legislature of
North-Carolina, in its tolly and madness, re
ject the proposed amendment, in such an
event we will then respectfully petition and
pray Congress on its re-assembling, to pass
an act to enable the loyal citizens of this :
State, " if there are only five thousand there
in," to so shape and organize a Republican
form of government, that will secure our ad
mittance as a State, into the Union, " and de
liver it entirely and forever from the misrule
Resolved; That a copy of these resolutions
be forwarded to the Editor of the Henderson
Pioneer, for publication, with the request that

TO THE UNION SOLDIERS OF WEST
Fellow-Citizens late of the U. S. Army:
Fellow-Citiiens all : Accept my re
gards and thanks for your kind and earnest
solicitations inviting ine to be at, and take
a part in your Convention. It would avail
me much pleasure and satisfaction to have
yielded to your request, and had made up
my mind to do so, but owing to the present
condition of my health, prudence forbids my
.attendance. In view of these facts, I embrace
this method of addressing to you a short
-communication, which you can dispose of as
you think best. .
Soon after the close of the war, the Union
.soldiers of Western North-Carolina, who had
-exposed themselves to dangers equal to any
battle, in their efforts to reach their friends
of the Union, were honorably discharged,
and they returned home. They were made
to believe, after such great sacrifices for prin
ciple after having run the gauntlet through
Confederate details and scouts of a most des
perate character, and after having connected
themselves with, and fought in the Union
army, they would at least have been rewar
ded with full protection from the vindk;tive
ness and persecution of a conquered enemy.
But what do we see ? The loyal people from
sections of the South, are fleeing Northward ;
the whole unreconstructed States are in the
hands of the rebels The most bitter ene
mies of the Unionists have the framing and
-executing of the laws.- They, by these laws
and otherwise, are hunting down and perse
cuting the Unionists and their friends. They
trample under foot the law was passed by a
two-thirds vote of Congress for the protec
tion of the loyal with the calculation that
President Johnson will not enforce the
penalties for the refusal to execute the law.
llr. Johnson vetoed and opposeed one meas
ure and another, until Congress, after a de
liberation of five months, concluded to ap
peal to the people of the United 8tates by a
dopting the Constitutional Amendment re
ported by the committee on Reconstruction
as modified by the Senate. They also pro
pose it to the unreconstructed States, and in
lay opinion a more liberal and conservative
plan was never offered to a conquered peo
ple on earth. These, to my mind, are the is
sues between the President and Congress.and
the people have been appealed to decide.
That the decision of the people of the States
in the Union will be in favor of their repre
sentatives there can be no doubt. For the
Union people of the South to oppose this
measure, would prove a mockery to what
they profess. " There is nothing that the true
Unionists dread so much as the idea of being
placed under the heels of their oppressors.
Then why should we oppose the very means .
set on our toot for our special benefit, and
for the maintenance of the principles we pro
fess ? All Union men agree that the leaders
of the rebellion have been the cause . of all
their woes that they are not worthy to be
trusted. Then why oppose a measure, one1
of the main features of which is to accom- ;
plish the very end so much desired. . -'
Fellow-Citizens, let me assure you that i
this measure called flM.SowaAmeiameHlS? ItaleisSffloiie ylilartels?
is the Bivot on. which Testa the;; beam, of the ' ,.. . V
balance of cower. If the people' fail, to bus
tain Congre83,the leaders of the rebellion will
again be possessed with the great lever power
of office.' The sat- experience ' of the i past,
should warn all of such a dire calamity. The
Amendment is not prescriptive, ? only, so far
as to reach the most intelligent and wicked
leaders. . It only asks the siiftpje thing, not
to elect a few to office for the present ; no
doubt that Congress will in due time re
move the obstruction. Another clause pro
poses to make a white man's vote count just
as mnch in one section as another. Who
can object to this ? Is it right and just that
the worst rebels in the South should vote
three times the political power to legislate
for the brave soldiers who have upheld and
sustained the flag of the Union ? No, my
friends, let the Union party of t he mountains
of North Carolina stand as heretofore, un
flinchingly for the Union, and for the repre
sentatives in Congress. Let us stand up for
this measure proposed by the conservative
Republican party in Congress. The terms,
considering the onciisc, are liberal, lair ana
just, and if, under all the circumstances after
a fair trial North Carolina should, refuse to
accept, let not the consequences which will
doubtless follow, fall upon the heads of the
Union party in this section of the State. In
my opinion, the offer now made is the last
and most liberal that will ever be made
Ifbythe influence of Andrew Johnson,
whether so intende.d or not, the people of
this State are led to reject the Constitutional
amendment it is my solemn judgment, that
the determination of the American people
will be, when they find there is no other way
to deal with this people, they will take the
most radical doctrine that the most extreme
man in the North can think of, and adopt it,
rather than surrender power into the hands
of those who led in the rebellion, and who
still persist in refusing such terms as are now
offered. Let me urge upon my Union friends,
everywhere, to come up to this measure of
Congress and give it their support, and then
if it fails to be accepted by the General As
semby of North Carolina, the consequences
of it rejection will not rest upon those who
have discharged their duty iu its support.
The South will have to come to terms. 1 ne
same power that conquered, can and will en
force their own teams.
Now, my friends, in concluding this let
ter, let me urge the necessity of harmony in
your deliberations. Do nothing in a spirit
of revenge. From the beginning of secess
ion and rebellion, the Unionists have been
persecuted and derided. Throughout the
blue mountains ot Western JNortn uaronna,
the Unionists have sustained their principles
through much tribulation, and under most
embarrassing circumstances. Let them not
falter and faint by the way at this late hour.
Hoping, gentleman, that your meeting
will be attended with success and harmony,
and that much strength and good to the par
ty of which you are the true exponents
through your deliberations will be accom
plished, I am, very respectfully, your obedient ser
vant. ALEX. H. JONES.
Hendersonville, N. C, Oct. 12th, 1866.
Agafm has death invaded the household of the
Secretary of State. It is not many months since
we were called upon to record the death of the
loved mother and wife. It is now our painful dnty
to announce that of the only daughter and sister.
Miss Frances A. Seward gently breathed her last
vesterday morning about halfpast six. An inva
lid for some time back, she was passing a few
weeks at Auburn, constant In her daily visits to
her mother's grave, when she was summoned to
her father's side by the tidings of his illness, on
his return from his Western tonr. She joined him
at Harrisonburg, and carefully and tenderly wai
ted upon him to this city and until his health was
restored. Her loving offices seemed to react fa
vorably on her own delicate frame, and she stead
ily improved until, about ten days ago, a severe
bilious attack prostrated ner. wuicb soon took a
typhoid form. Her family physician was sum
moned from Auburn, and though aided by the
best skill of this city and ot Baltimore, his efforts
were unavaling. Nothing seemed to rouse her
from her comatose condition until Sunday, when
she slightly rallied and recognized her friends, but
in tne mgnt sne lull into a protusc perspiration,
and exhausted nature gradually gave way.
Lovely and accomplished, endeared" to her
friends by a thousand charming traits, idolized by
her family, and especially by her father, whose af
fection she most tenderly reciprocated, her death
makes a void in the household which can never
be filled, and establishes a claim on the sympath
ies of the public for her distinguished father, who
is thus so sorely smitten, while so faithfully ser
ving his countiy, that we doubt not will be
promptly met by all classes of his countrymen.
Seldom has any public man suffered so severely
under tlie band ol amiction as lias lallen to uis lot
within the two past years.
The funeral services will take placcat St. John's
Church at 3 o'clock Wednesday, and the re
mains will subsequently be removed to Auburn.

Court was in session again yesterday, but the

The Rothschilds and the Cotton
CRoy. The Rothschilds recently wrote to
this country for as correct a statement as
could possibly be procured of the probable
yield of cotton in the Southern Sates during
the year 1866, and received in reply, from a
distinguished planter, that it would not ex
ceed," under the most favorable circumstan
ces, over 1,200,000 bales." The gentleman
who wrote this has since, in view of the dep
redations of the worms, havoc from rust, and
the scarcity of labor to pick out the staple,
reduced his estimate to -1,000.000 bales, of
which amount he does not believe tliere will
be 200,000 bales available for ex.port.-jDe-pateh

reduced our prices to as low a point as they can
WITn 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
have given our productions the very highest rank
among time-keepers. Commencing with the de
termination to make only thoroughly excellent
watches, our bnsiness has steadily increased as
the public became acquainted with their value,
until for mouths 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 oJ.l in
the United Stales. The different grades are dis
tinguished by the following trade-marks on the

should remember that unlike the guarantee of a

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
