THE FAVKTTKVII.I.K CKSiTKN
NIAI.. Preparations arc goiiiK on to make tin
celebration of the adoption ot the consti
tution by the people of North Carolina
one of the grandest in all its details cvet
had in North Carolina. It is intended ti
enlist if possible the interests of t'lewlioli
State; to draw to it its orators, it
statesmen, and its great men of all de
grees, to make it splendid with its mili
tary display, with its music anil its ban
ners, mid to adorn it with the substan
tial element of material prosiK'rity, tin
substantial fruits of sure and solid peace
by associating with it the joint splendor
of the Cumberland county agricultural
fair. And to these will lie added the bril
liant attraction of the United States Ma
rine Band, with its 108 instruments.
The central figure of the occasion may
be Jefferson Davis, the honored ex-President
of the Confederacy, not as a re
minder so much of a lost cause and fruit
less aim at separate government, but as
grateful remembrance that mistortuni
had not brought the shame ot defeat
upon him or the cause for which all suf
fered alike, and gathered together agaii
they may sympathize in past niislortum
and proudly show to the world how
splendidly they have improved disaster
not as abject, self-conscious rebels, but a
equal American citizens still true to tin
principles of self-government.
And it was stern adherence to thesi
principles that retarded the adhesion oi
North Carolina into the biudingcompact
of the I'nion into which all the othei
Stiites but one had promptly entered.
She would not surrender without guar
antees that tor which she contended st
long and so desperately, in the field ami
in the council. Not even then were ah
satisfied that thev had secured all lot
which they fought and counseled; anil
the events of the past quarter ot a cen
tury prove the justice of their apprehen
sions. But this is not the place to deter
mine whether feeble isolation in the hide
endcnce of commonwealth existence is
better than the strong unity of the cen
tralization which now threatens.
In regarding the coining celebration as
enlisting the interest and the co-operation
of the whole State of North Carolina, il
is interesting to note how small a portion
of the State, in relation to population,
was involved in the acts of the war
ol the revolution or the discussions
connected with the adoption of a
form of government. West of the
Catawba river the country was
scarcely divided into counties, with set
tlements only at rare intervals. Heyond
the Blue Kidgc, from the present Hun
combe line to Cherokee, there was prac
tically no white population. Buncombe
county, the only western county laid oil
in the mountain section during the last
eenturv, was not formed until four years
after the adoption of the constitution.
The most populous counties of Western
North Carolina were then embraced in
the present State of Tennessee, over
which North Carolina still held jurisdic
tion, out of which counties came many
of the North Carolinians who made their
valor so effective at the decisive fiht ot
Now that wilderness territory is filled
with a thrifty people, adorned with pros
perous towns, traversed with railroads,
and in position to take a very active and
exultant part in the Fayetteville celebra
tion. We hojie manv of them will be

short branch of railroad will bring it into
direction of the line of travel and traffic,
which, when the Western North Carolina
Railroad is completed to Murphy is des
tined to be great provided the world
holds on in its course. If it does. West
ern North Carolina is at present only on
the threshold of its greatness; it is only
just beginning to see daylight. A genera
tion henceitwill lieamong the best known,
most prosperous and populous parts
of the State. The towns we have spoken
of will all tee) the new impulse, none
more so than Webster; tor its location is
a line one, its scenery attractive, and its
henlthfulness unequnled. We are in
formed, and so far as personal observa
tion extending over eight years goes it is
true, that there has been a case of fever
in the town. But as the Herald truly
savs the advadeemeni of this place must
begin from within. All depends upon the

The Herald says:
What advantages Highlands possesses
in locality, position, healthfulness nnd
picturesqueness is held by Webster, in
all but the latter in a preeminent degree.
All that is wanted is to make them use
ful by calling them into local activity.
The people of Webster must do this
themselves. They must take hold of
them and expand them and make them
locally useful, which can be done by a
much less effort than wag used in the
building up of Highlands, and by ' a
greatly divided work instead of by the
labor and perseverance of one single
man. Webster has the advantage of
Highlands in that by a little effort a
railroad, at small cost, comparatively,
can be built right to the town's border.
Why will the people of Webster not:
wake up to their interests before it is
Jl STICK TO THE CITIIE3J,
The following remarks of the Murphy
Bulletin, connected with i mments on a
recent article in The Citizkn does our
paer no more than justice. In the past,
through its whole career, and in the pres-
nt, Tiik Citizkn has regarded Western
North Carolina as the "apple of its eye,"
whole, and in all its parts, without
partialities and with equal concentra
tion of interest. It is a fascinating suh
jeet, so adorned with all the richest gifts
of climate nnd scenery, that in speaking
of nnv and all of it, one might be sus
pected of being carried away on the
wings of enthusiastic imagination, if we
were not able to fortify ourselves with
he citation and presentation of so many
iolid tacts that imagination might droop
lier impotent pinions. When all that lias
lwcn said about the mountain country
has been said, then must be candidly
ulded "the half hath not been told."
The llullettin says:
Tiik Citizi.n has alwas show n a spirt'
f friendliness to this mountain section,
md in behalf of our own people, we will
,iere remark that Tiik Citizkn is loved
ind cherished by them, for it is doing,

We find in the News-Observer the ii
formation recently brought to light by
ihe Washington Capital that Simon
Cameron, Lincoln's secretary of war, left
in the war department a map of the
Southern States as he designed they
should be alter they became conquered
territory. All these States were obliter
ated, and new lines given to them and
new names to secure the oblivion of the
)ld ones. No doubt to make the effacc-
mcnt of old forms and institutions com
plete. they were to have been known as
dukedoms and earldoms and marquis-
ates, and over the new order of things
was to dominate supremely the impcrini
crown, as subsequently shadowed forth
by the outcropping of Cit'snrism, and the
ispirntion of President ('.rant for a third
'.erm. The party now known as Repub
lican is the direct inheritor of the princi
ples of Federalism, a construction of tlie
principles of American institutions lean
nig as far from the ideas of Democracy,
or the government ol the pcopleus it was
possible to strain them. A strong gov
ernment was what was sought after,
and that was in the government of the
cw, and the subordination of the States.
This idea has been adhered to, ami had
its illustration in the inception of tin
,'rcnt civil war. They are adhered to
now in the eli'orts to bring about cen
tralization whether by peaccfulor violent
means, by paternulizing the government
and winning over the people; or by
throwing oil the mask as Sherman and
1'onrgee propose "by torch and turpen
tine" and sei.mg the pretext for loicible in
tervention, and pi. tilting permanentocen
