The Colored Convention at Raleigh.
Raleigh, N. C, May 10. After several
days of wrangling tho colored convention
which assembled here on the 17th adjourn
ed at a very late hour last night. The ob
ject of tbe meeting of the negro statesmen
was to make a lormal demand upon the
president for tho control of tho potronago
in North Carolina. The convention con
sisted of about seventy-five members,
among were many prominent negroes, al
though the majority of the delegates wcro
ignorant men who were unable to explain
the object of their assembling. The negroes
passed a resolution appointing a committee
of twenty-two to wait on President Gar
field and lay before him tho
grievencea of tho colored people of this
state. The BcntimcnU of all of thoso who
took part in the discussion in the 'conven
tion, to the effect that the negroes of tho
old North State did not intend longer to
permit the Republican party to make use
without receiving substantial returns.
They refuse to longer content themselves
with menial places under tho government,
but demand that they shall have absolute
control of the state. If this demand is not
complied with the colored statesmen give
Garfield notice that the race in North Caro
lina will no longer give its support solidly
fur the party ho represents. The commit
tee will visit Washington at once and havo
an interview with the president. It is
Judge Tourjee, the author of "Tho Fool's
Errand," who is well acquainted with poli
tics in North Carolina, who instigates this
movement among the negroes.

The Express' Albany special says: The
Albany Express, which is the only organ of
the stalwarts at the capital, concedes this
morning the defeat of Conk ling and ap
peals tor peace. It also speaks in the
kindest manner of Robertson, and acknowl
edges him as the present leader of tlio
party, and guarantees its firm support to
him in the future.

United States Boundary Line
The northern boundary of this coun
try is marked by stone cairns, iron pil
lars, wood pillars, earth mounds, and
timber posts. A stono cairn is 7J feet,
an earth motmd 7x14 feet, an iron pil
lar 8 feet high, 8 inches square at tho
bottom, and 4 inches at tho top; timber
posts 5 feet high and 8 inches square.
There aro 382 ot those marks between
the Lake of the Woods and the baso of
tho Rocky Mountains. That portion of
tho boundary which lies eiwt and west
of tho Red River Valloy is marked hy
cast-iron pillars at even-mile intervals.
Tho British placo one every two mile
and tho United States ono between each
two British posts. Our pillars or mark

They havo at the top a solid pyramidal
cap, and at the bottom nn octagonal
flange ono inch in thickness. Upon
tho opposite faces are east in letters
two inches high tlio inscriptions, "Con
tention of London" and "October 20,
1818." Tlio inscriptions begin about
four feet six inches above tho base, und
read upwards. Tim interiors of the
hollow posts aro filled with
soned cellar posts, sawed to lit. nm!
ciirely spiked through spike-holes east
in tho pillars for that nm
average weight of ouch i Ihtr wl.r-n

wooden posts well-seasoned logs aro se

painted red, to prevent swelling and

but tho Indians cut them down for fuel,
and nothing hut iron will hist very long.
Where tho line crosses lakes, monu
ments of stones havo been built, tho
buses being in some places eighteen feet
under water and the tops projecting
eight -feet above tho lake's surface nt
