United States Senator for North-Caro-
lina The Rebellious Spirit of the
North-Carolina has just supplied us with
a specimen of the sort of " loyalty " that per
vades the South, by the election of Judge M.
E. Manlv. late of the Supreme Court of that
State, to the office of United States Senator.
Judge Manly was an original and malignant
traitor. He used his liigh position on the
1 tench of the Appellate Court of the Stale,
the highest judicial tribunal, to foster the
progress of secession and to take North-Carolina
over to the rebel government. After
the war had commenced he distinguished
himself as the convenient tool of Jeff l)avis,
deciding in the numerous cases that came
before liis court, involving the legality of the
arbstrary acts of the Confederate govern
ment, invariably in favor of his master.
Judge Pearson, the Chief Justice of the Su
preme Court, an upright Judge and at heart
a Union man, stood for the most part alone
in his resistance to the usurpations of the
Jeff Davis administration, Judge Manly be
ing always against him, and in a majority of
instances, taking Judge Battle, a weak and
vacillating man, with him. When the war
ceased and the active rebellion was subdued,
Judge Manly continued a bitter and unyield
ing traitor. As a member of the Reconstruc
tion Convention held at Raleigh in Novem
ber, 1805, he opposed the act declaring t he
ordinance ot secession passed in 1861 null
and void in the past as in the future, and
struggled against the repudiation of the rebel
debt. The act re-organizing the courts of
the State was introduced in order to get rid
of this malignant traitor and others who dis
graced the bench of the State, and whose
term of office, being for life, could not be
otherwise brought to a close. In the Con
vention he succeeded, with the aid of Judge
Howard, of the Superior Court, in at first
defeating the proposition to repudiate the
rebel debt ; but a telegram from President
Johnson subsequently induced the conven
tion to reconsider its action and to pass the
ordinance of repudiation over the Leads cf
The selection of such an unsubdued rebel
for United States Senator proves how futile,
it is to hope lor any restoration policy based
upon a healthy sentiment ot loyalty at the
South. North-Carolina has been generally
admitted to be less impregnated with seces
sion than any other State of the late Con
federacy. A large share of her people pro
fessed to remain at heart true to the Union,
although compelled to give an outward ad
hesion to the rebel government. Many of
her citizens joined the Union army and
fought well in the Union cause. The admin
istration of Jeff Davis found in North Caro
lina its most troublesome enemies: and as
soon as the progress of the federal army re
claimed that State to the Union the secession
sentiment hid its head, and the community
seemed upon the surface to be earnest in its
loyalty. The action of the North Carolina
Legislature is therefore full of significance.
It shows that the spirit of the rebellion is
not dead, and that it has only laid aside its
arms to resott to more covert but not less
dangerous means to compass the destruction
of the Union. It ha evinced a proud apd stub
born determination to insult and defy the
loyal States by forcing into Congress such un
washed traitors as this rebel Judge. It. is
time for Congress to adopt such a decisive
policy as the state of the country warrants,
and to put down in reality the rebellion that
etill stalks abroad, although it may for the
present keep its revolver and its bowie knife
in its pocket. New York lie) aid.

Letter of Ex-Qovebkok Swain, ofNobth
Carolina, to Hon. B. F. Pebrt on the
proposed Constitutional Amendment.
Chapel Hill, N.C., Monday, Nov. 19, 1866.
My Dear Sir : I have receivecLand read
with the attention it deserves, the copy of
your letter ot the 5Jbtu ult., to V. W. Wood
Your analysis of the Howard Amendment
is so clear, and the objections you present to
its adoption so forcible, that there is little
necessity for further discussion n- ne, in
deed, for those who understand the peculiar
condition of the state affairs at the South.
The great obstacle at present to a perpetual
and perfect union is the want of accurate in
formation at the North of the true condi
tion and feelings of the Southern people. I
am satisfied that the framers of the Amend
ment, if they really knew.as statesmen ought
to know, those for whom they legislate, would
not for a moment urge its adoption, much
less insist upon it a a sine qua non.
The third section proposes a double dis
franchisement of nine-tenths of the people of
North Caroliua. I do not overstate the case
when I assume that not one-tenth of those
who would be regarded as falling within the
range of selection under a system of unre
stricted suffrage are eligible to office under
the State or Federal Government. While
all who gave aid or comfort to the insurg
ents, no matter to how great or how small
an extent, have the right to vote, it is the
right to vote, not for the men of their
choice, but for persons selected from that
tenth of the community, who, as a gen
eral rule, without any reference to politi
cal opinions, have uo paramount claims
to consideration, mental or moral. My
acquaintance with prominent men through
out the State is, perhaps, as general as that
of any other citizen, and yet I do not
know of a single in: tan e in any one of the
Congressional districts of a person who can
honestly take the test oath who, in 18C0,
would have regarded himself, or was consid
ered by others, as one of the number who
might reasonably aspire to a seat in the na
tional councils. Is it any evidence of a want
of loyalty to decline such a system of suf
frage ? It might seem strange if, instead of
the privilege of selection from the tenth of
our own, we were allowed to vote for citi
zens of another State to represent us. For
one, I couid name a score ol citizens of other
States of the American Union, of either po
litical party, for whom I would much more
willingly vote than for any one in this Con
gressional district who can give the evidence
of loyalty required by the test oath.
Suppose the third section adopted, how
many voters would avail themselves of what
has hitherto been considered the inestimable
right ot suffrage ? Not more than half the
voters participated in the last election for
members of the Legislature and Governor.
A small proportion, and that not always the
most discreet would attend the polls," and
the portion of the tenth selected would not
always be the most virtuous anil intelligent
of those eligible to office. One thing is very
certain, those most apt toscurc a majority of
votes under such a system would be the least
loval in profession and devotion to the Uni-
! on, and most objectionable to those who have
been its most earnest advocates in times of
the greates peril.
I will not do the Committee of fifteen the
injustice to suppose that the majority desir
ed the adoption of a basis of suffrage for the
South that would insure the selection of the
I small proportion ot those eligible to office,
yet such would be the mvitable result, and
therefore, I repeat I do not believe that the
author of the amendment, Judge Howard,
would himself desire its adoption if he was
accurately acquainted with our condition.
It is not very difficult to decide the char
acter of oui representatives if this rule shall
be forced upon us. Let us inquire for a mo
ment who will be excluded. Take your State
for an example. From early life to the pres
ent time I have had opportunities to know
something of your leading men. I knew Mr.
Pettigrew personally--met him in Charles
ton in February, 1861, corresponded with
him during the entire period of the war, and
to within two or three weeks of his death,
regarded him when living, and venerate him
now that he is no more, as one of the ablest
and purest men I have ever known. I can
not say that if he was alive he could not
take the test oath, but I can affirm with great
confidence that under no circumstances would
he do it. My personal knowledge of you ex
tends through nearly half a century. We
were schoolmates and intimate friends in
early life, and at all subsequent periods 1
have been familiar with your histojy. With
out entering into details that might be offen
sive to your delicacy, I can say with confi
dence that investigation will establish the
fact beyond controversay that from the first
avowal of mullification by Mr. Calhoun, in
his letter to Gen. Hamilton, until the seces
sion of your State, no member of the Com
mittee, not even excepting Senator Johnson,
of Maryland, had ever been placed in circum
stances that required or admitted the con
stant, unflinching, hazardous devotion to the
Union, and opposition to niullificntion mid
secession, winch have characterized the whole
course of your political life. President
Johnson, (in 1829 30, I believe,) resided in
Lauicns, the adjoining .district to Greenville,
in your State; and few pen-ons beyond the
limits of South Carolina are as familiar as he
or sympathised as deeply as he, in the con
flicts which you waged for so many years in
behalf of the Union. You cannot take the
oath, and what I affirm in relation to those
in North-Carolina who can, will not apply
with less force to South Carolina. You have
no honest and competent men who can sub
mit to a test of loyalty which is, in my esti
mation, as clearly unconstitutional as inex
pedient. And yet we are told, no doubt honestly on
the part of many who say so, that a range of
confiscation which has no parrallel in the
history of civilization since the days of Wil
liam the Conqueror, is a mild punishment
for Confederate treason. The descendants of
Shay rebellionists. whisky insurrectionists,
and Hartford conventionists can afford to be
merciful, if not magnanimous. We are as
sured, moreover, with equal honesty and sin
cerity, that Southern statesmen should con
sent to their exclusion from office with exul
tation, as affording an opportunity to open
the way to office and emolument to those
who, under other circumstances, would never
have been thought of by themselves or others
mconnection with official station. John Quin
cy Adams, you may remember, entertained
and expressed on a memorable occasion very
different sentiments. When, with a view to
censure Mr. Webster, a Pennsylvania repre
sentative offered a resolution, calling upon
the President for information as to the man
ner in which the secret service fund had been
expended, Mr. Adams expressed a willing
ness to vote for it if the members would
avow that his purpose was to impeach tr.
Webster as Secretary of State. In reply to
the suggestion that Mr. Webster was not
then in office and not subject to impeach
ment, Mr. Adams remarked in substance,
that he understood the Constitution very dif
ferently that he had now arrived at that
time of life that with the exception of the
station he then held, he had nothing to ex
pect or desire at the hands of his country
men, but that he had filled the highest office
in their gift, and that for any malfeasance in
office he was still amenable to impeachment
and a punishment that he would regard as
worse than death disqualification to hold
office. That sentence is proposed to be pass
ed upon you, under an amendment of the
Constitution to be adopted, with about as
much regard to the spirit of the mode point
ed out in that instrument as would charac
terize the formality of an impeachment of our
friend Gov. Graham for some misdemeanor,
yet to be discovered, committed w hile Secreta.

adjustment would have been adopted, and
one much more favorable to the true Union
men of the South than the Howard amend
ment. I am, with great respect and esteem, your
old friend, D. L. SWAIN.

. Qvvi Nbw JJ. S. Senator. The reader
has already been advised, of the election of

In a pure political sense, the Senator elect
is far more acceptable to us than either of
his opponents. It still appears to our minds,
in spite of all this, that sound policy and the
best interests of the State dictated the selec
tion of Hon. John Pool. It was the occas
ion, both as to time and object, for a tender
of the olive-branch for unity and peace at
home, and should not have been lost. Be
sides, the very doubts which were suggested
as to the present attitude of Mr. Pool, on
minor points of difference, would, in the
event ot his select ion,have been strength and
argument in the hands of Northern conserva
tives against Northern radicals. It would
have been an unanswerable refutation of the
great electioneering hobby four enemies:
that we still disloyal, Btill rebellious, still
disposed to wreak vengeance on those who
different from us during the war. The Leg
lature thought otherwise and as a conse
quence elevated another a citizen whom we
respect and admire, and whose views more
nearly accord with our own than those of
Mr. Pool. The wisdom of the course we
suggested, however, has not been nor is it
likely to be disproved. On the contrary, we
sorrow that there is so much reason to fear
that a month or two will show the forecastc
of the Progress and the political heeedless-

ALLCOCK'S POROUS PLASTERS.
BEST STRENGTHENING PLASTER IN THE
Allcock's Porous Plasters resolve and assuage
pain by calling forth the acrid humors from parts
internal to the skin and general circulation
thus, in many cases, positively evaporating the
disease. JAMES LULL, M. D.

rything is pleasant about them. They are the
plaster of the day, and tit type of our present ad
vancement in science and art. In Asthma, Cough,

From a personal knowledge of these plasters,

REASON WHY THE
Made at WALTIIAM, MASSACHUSETTS,
IS THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is
composed of SOLID PLATES. Nor jar can in
terfere with the harmony of its working and no
sudden shock can damage its machinery. Every
piece is made and finished by machinery (itself
famous for its novelty, as well as for its effective
ness) and is therefore properly made. The watch
is what all mechanism should be ACCURATE,
SIMPLE, STRONG AND ECONOMICAL. Ex
cept some high grades, too costly forgeneral use,
foreign watches are chiefly made by women and
boys. Such watches are composed of several
hundred pieces, screwed and riveted together,
and require constant repairs to keep them in any
kind of order. All persons who have carried
" ancres" " lepines" and " English Patent, Le
vers," are perfectly well aware ol the truth of
At the beginning of our enterprise more than
ten years ago, it was our first object to make a
thoroughly goou. low priced watch for the mill
ion, to take the place os these foreign imposi
tions ; the refuse of foreign factories, which were
entirely unsaleable at home and perfectly worth
.low well we have accompolished this, may be
understood from the fact that so many years of
public ti ial, we now make MORE THAN HALF
OF ALL. THE WATCHES SOLD IN THE
UNITED STATES, and that no others have ever
given such universal satisfaction. While this de
partment of our business is continued with in
creased facilities for perfect work, we are at pre
sent engaged in the manufacture of watches of
the very HTGnEST GRADE KNOWN TO
CHRONOMETRY, unequaled by anything hither
to made by ourselves, and unsurpassed by any
thing made in the world. For this purpose we
have the amplest facilities. We have erected an
addition to our main building expressly for this
branch of our business, and have filled it with the
best workmen in our service. New machines
and appliances have been constructed which per
form their work with consummate delicacy and
exactness. The choicest and most approved ma
terials only are used, and we challenge compari
son between this grad.s of our work and the finest
imported chronometers. We do not pretend to
sell our watches for less money than foreign
watches, but we do assert without fear of contra
diceion that for the same money our product is
incomparably superior. All our watches, of what
ever grade, are fully warranted, and this warran
tee is good at all times against us or our agents
in all parts of the world.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
only of responsible dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
