of the excited animus produced by
the war, making the first chief dis
tinction betwen the national parties
the simplo matter of policy towards
the Southern Utes, the one party
taking the position they were peers
with the other states of the Union
and should govern themselves ac
cording to constitutional require
ments, the other that they were
conquered territories and should be
treated with severity and humiliated
that '-treason might be made odi-
The natural effect of this
tate of things in national politics
was to cause in the Southern states
parties likewise involving but little
of the principle of government and
making the basis of difference a
sveophantic subserviency and an :
indignant apposition. Eight years,
however, have past since the war,
and it is time that our people were
taking deeper views of their politi
cal situation. !

We do not advocate just now
radical alterations in the constitu-i
tion, except the expunging of a j
h,r nva of matter which nron
,, , , -r . , 1 , 1
erly belongs to the Legislature and j
is no part of the organic law. The
Constitution should contain noth i
ing but a few fundamental laws in !
regard to the preservation of life,
liberty and property, the detail
being left to the Legislature. We
unly now mention two suggestions
a fleeting the question of suffrage :
Xo man shoulcl be allowed to vote
who does not show his tax receipt,
if demanded by any elector so to
do. nor should any persons be en
titled to vote who has been convic
ted of an infamous crime. These
laws would not only be right in
themselves, bat would do much to
wards collecting the public dues
and for the prevention of crime.
Take, for instance, a county like
K lgecombe, and what could do so
much for the suppression of crime
us the knowledge that if caught
nnd convicted the guilty person
would for ever be deprived of his
suffrage '! Not the whipping post
itself would be such a preventive.
We hope the matter of a conven
tion nny be the first considered
by our Legislature, and as there
can be no doubt about the requisite
two-third3 vote this time, it will call
the convention as soon as practical
A contributor of the Morning
Star advocates a second State Peni
tentiary, to be located on Deep
River in the midst of the coal and
iron region. His object is to utilize
convict labor in the development of j
the great resources of that portion
of the State. The Star suggests
that perhaps a better, because more
economical, plan would be to estab
lish temporary quarters there for
laborers drawn from the Penitenti
ary at Raleigh. This is feasible.

Ilyman, tho negro Congressman

But truly our sympathies reach out
very much after John, the lonesome
negro John occupies an unenviable
solitude, a lone negro and a lone
Radical from a great State ! John in
Congress reminds us of a littla anec
dote. Some years ago a gentleman
in travelling from the town of Farm
villo to Petersburg passed a large
tobacco field. It was "hilling up"
time,' and he observed that only one
negro man was at work while the
field was very large and the rowa
very long Having spent a week in
Petersburg, on his return he passed
tho same way, andobsreved the same
negro still plying his hoe, apparently
in tho very 6pot he occupied a week
before, "Well, my good fellow,', Baya
ho, addressing the negro, "you make
slow progress; you are almost exactly
where yon wore when I passed a week
ago," "Dats do truth, master," says
he, "and I tell you as how it is. I
always did say d a one nigger !''
