?TARBOEO NORTH CAROLINA. A.HEABNB, ! Wlit.BIQGS, EDITORS. THTRSD1Y, . SEPT. 26, 1867. The Issue Before . fbe time has unquestionably arrived for every man of the South to re-CDter the arena of politics,' no matter how much lie tpay deprecate suet course or dc nre to have done with political ques tions or avoid party Hues and divisions. The government under which we live is one demanding alike the sup port and obedience of the people ; it is a government of the people one guaranteeing to every one the exercise l)f - political privileges ono that re quires of every pnp the discharge of political duties. To fecal the wounds inflicted on the people by the late iutcrual strife to A . . 1 1 rccoveraour material strengjn ana regain pur material prosperity, we have since ; the close of hostilities, so far avoided ' .the KUTject or politics, as was compat ' jlile with our present position and past i -L.f :. .. i p .r i fitfd E&oeral prevalence of food ftel ; .y,'- " O iog ajmang all classes of the Southern :Vpcvplt?', we have labored to forget old T Tinrf,v itiinirs an l n r own n i nrpiiuiirp.s.

We have been pleased to witiic&s such a general adoption of ko ttractical a course. Were it possible to continue in this . line of couduct, without sacrifice, we '. would urge its future observance. But the interests of a country must suffer, in proportion as the goveiLinent fails to give protection to its individual sup porters and since the peculiar nature of our government demands from the peo ple the ejercise of peculiar privileges and can only exist by a faithful dis charge of duties rendered incumbent ly reason of the privileges conferred, vc cannot with justice to ourselves neglect the political interests of our country. Iy so doing, we violate a trust re posed in us by our forefathers and at pnee become the degenerate offspring of an illustrious ajipestry. It therefore becomes the imperative and solemn duty of every gcod Southern citucnto throw aside the iudifference, which for the past two years has marked their action, and once more assuming their responsibilities, permit their voice to ua nearu in me management and con. trol of questions vitally conceuing, themselves. Congress has graciously allowed us to express an opinion iu a matter directly concerning our future rela tions with the government, of which Veyet form a part, and we should not forego the opportunity of thus declaring pur feelings on the subject. To render this expression of any force, it is ueccssary that it should proceed from the entire mass of those most interested, and to do this effec tually, requires the united action of all. from the mountains i0 tfc0 seaboard, j, twe tun tot ins tpeeuy organization pf 'the conservative element in the State has met with a hearty response and one, that inthecomingcleetion will re echo the feelings of the entire peo ple against tyranny and oppression in $ny and every shape. We shall soon bp called upon to de cide upon the calling of a Convention, wdiose object will be, to change the whole orgauic law of the State, and which must, unless checked by proper organization on the part of the conser vatives, iiapose upon us a constitution, whoso features will he more odious and tyrannical than even the present military despotism under which we now groan. .Negro supremacy, with all its hor rors await us, if by supinencia on our part we permit the radical schemes now in progress to oLtaiij asceudency. The political reaction now going on at the North speaks loudly to the South ern people to reject measures, which they themselves are now declaring by their yotes to be both unjust and odi ous, and as the Convention, soon to be palled, is supposed to be the means of perfecting these measures, without at present going more fully ipto the reasons for this advice the Southerner Bays, No Convention : Whije thus voting, rc should nevertheless bh pre i. r., ii. j - pared to send our best meu po such CouventLcm, if called, ajid to do this we jnu.st organize and cfonce. ... difference of Opinion, Tbe Norfolk Journal of 21st inst., congratulates the people of the 2nd Military District, in having such an acceptable commander as General Can by to rule x?yer them, and gays : !

While no diiuljt wishing to do his utmost to carry qfjt tho reconstruction measures of Cingi fss $p a conciliatory spirit, he has, at tho pauie time, a peculiar manner of bhowing his wishes in this respect, judging from the only two orders yet emanating from his head quarters. Iu his first he deems it proper to order that every confederate soldier who wluutarily absented himself from the South, since the Dth day of April 18G5 and has since returned, shall give the parole prescribed on that day, thus requiring men to assume obligations, which they have once escaped by the chances of war, and which, ignoring the peace proclamation of the President at the close of the war, endeavors at this lute day to mike a conquered pco plo once more taste the bitterness of defeat. Even Ceu'I Sickles, amid all his usur pations upon the laws aud customs of the two Carolinas did not proceed so far iu art of Govern inrj, so easily learn ed by his predecessor. Seo Gen. Or der No. SO. published elsewhere. In th'i3 Gcn'l Cauby follows tho ex ample of head quarter Pope, and modi fying General Order No. 32, directs that all citizens assessed for tuxes, and whttttlL3-ll -jtttt1 taaco (xrr tilU CUT- rent year, aud who are qualified, and have been or mat be dull rrqhtered as voters, are hereby qualified to serve as Jurors. Any requirement of a proper ty qualification for jurors in addition to the qualifications herein prescribed, is abrogated. Under the operations of this order, a large portion of our best aud most intelligent citizeus are deprived of the right aud privilege of serving as ju rors, while at the bume time every ig norant and unlearned negro is invested with such privilege, which course, in the language of our cotemporary, " seems to have won the hearts of the people." If the tyo specimens notic ed above arc to be taken as examples of the ';just and impartial " rclatious displayed towards the Carolinians, we confess our inability to see nny good likoly to result iu the change of com manders and can only reiterate the hope " that the reconstruction mea sures which he has been appointed to carry through, will be consummated to the satisfaction of all concerned." If the liepublicano th roughout the State are uuwilling to take our version of the feelings actuating the lute radi cal convention in Pialeigh, probably the following extracts from the Regis ter, a well known Republican orgau, may have more influence. Alluding to the " Plan of Organization '' adopted the I? p't r says : ': Wc denounce it as utterly ineou sisteut with the spirit of Republican liberty ; and as having no warrant of Republican party endorsement. Bat if it were adopted as the plan of or ganization for the Notional party, wc should still d mouuee it as anti-repub lican. In fact, it reads likp a military Bulletin from Headquarters. There is a regular subordination of rank to rank, from the State Executive Com mittee, (of which we have been too much honored by being named as a member) to the Congressional Dis trict Committees, from the latter to the! County Committees, from the County Committees to the Precinct Committees, and from the latter to the people." ' Such is the despotic scheme sub mitted to the Convention by the gen tleman from the Fourth Ward of Wash ington City, and which was adopted by the scheming whites, and inexperienc ed blacks present, for the government of "the Republican party in the State.'' Wc repudiate it, as a gross and mon strous off spring of cunning and igno rance. The colored people are inex perienced in political affairs ; and the most intelligent among them, though equal to the whites as debaters, were not equals wire-pullers, aud could not see the latent selfishness of the schemers." In the early days of the Republic the Primary Assemblies ef the people were held in great respect. They are mentioned iu the Rills of Rights; and that of North Carolina declares that the people have the right thus peacea bly to assemble together to consult oa public affairs, and to instruct their re presentatives iu the Legislature and in Congress. How great, then, must be the degeneracy, if a knot of office seekers, adventurers from the four corners of the earth .can meet in Raleigh and issue instructions to the people '. The impudence of tho thing would exceed belief if it were not promulgated to tho world with the names of its authors." -.J. Conservative Meeting in Goldsboro. Qn 'Wednesday night, the 18th instant, a meeting was held in Goldsboro having in view the organization of a party for the protection of our political rights. Dr. A, C. Davis presided, and Capt. R. T. Ful ghum and A. B. Faltner, were the Secre taries. The following wore the resolutions adopted ; Eesolc'ed, That in the opinion of his meeting, it is proper that tho Conservative portion of North Carolina shall organize themselves into a party, for the protection of their political rights. Resolved, That we approve of a Stat Convention, to be held at the city of liil eigh, on or .about the 16th October. Unsolved, That we will hold a Conven tion, in this county, on the 25th inst., for the purpose of sending delegates to the State Convention. Resolved, That ih counties in this Con gressional D: : i"t e requested to act in concert thij Cove-ution. At tliis Nt;tgc'V the meeting, Capt. Ful. gimni uitredneud U m. Smith, Esq., of Nev llaiovei , to the meeting who was re quested ou motion, to occupy a seatin the meeting. gentlemen were the New Cotton Regulations Washington, September 21. The revised regulations fix a tax on cotton produced in the United "States of 2 cents per pound. Cotton properly as sessed and returned prior to Septem ber 1st, is subject to a tax of three cents per pouud. Cotton removed un der bonds prior to September is taxed three cents, and there is a lien on the cotton till the tax is paid. Class A is cotton upon which the tax is paid- Class B, cotton removed from the dis trict of its production with the tax unpaid. Class C, cotton, removed from point to point in the district where produced before payment of tax. Cot ton must be described by these desig nations in bills of lading, way bills, manifestoes and permits. Each asses sor is required to keep an account with each cottoa producer in his district. The assessors at the receiving points shall keep account with each receiver. An assessor or assistant and collector or assistant is-"required at the places where cottou is weighed, aud marked metalic tags for marking cotton will hereafter be required to be used, and will be furnished assessors by the De partment." On each bag will be stamped a letter A, number in figures and " United States Interna! Revenue." These packages, of 50 each, are num bered from 1 to 50, and from 50 to 100, and must be used in that order on eich lot of cotton weighed and marked. The owner can have the cot tan weighed and marked at any point in the district by paying the travelling expenses of the otfieers. A disagree ment may be referred to a commission er, but the officer must not delay the weighing on that account. The owner may furnish the hands for weighing. The process for weighing and mark ing does not require the immediate payment of the tax if the cotton re mains iu the district unsold. The Se cretary of the Treasury appoints the weighers, aud recommendations for that office must come through tho as sessors of tho respective districts and be addressed to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue. Weighers must take the iron-clad oath. Each bale must be marked its gross weight with ink or paint, in large let ters, and the metallic tag fixed to it by the assessor or assistant. The fee for weighing is 25 cents per bale, to be paid by the owner. The assessor will see that the tags are inserted at the time of weighing, and the letter and number entered in his record, and per mits, whether issued by the assessor or collector, for the removal of cotton, must clearly specify the lot and num ber for each bale, xo (hat it may be easily identified. When the tax is paid collectors will causo to bo marked " tax paid " ou each bale. Cotton may be moved to another district without prepayment of tax un der bond or other sccurjty subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Treasury, or the owner may ship it to the revenue officer of the district to which he wants to remove it, having i obtained a regular bill of landing, I signed by a wellknowu transportation j company, consigning the cotton to said j collector of the district to which it is I destined, the way-bill to be furnished to the assessor ot the district immedi ately alter its arrival there. The way bill is to contain the class A. B or C in which the cottou is, and to be kept accouut of by the assessor. Should any transportation company re fuse or neglest to furnish such way bill to the assessor, he shall notify all other assessors on the lino of such company or such refusal, and thereaf ter no permits shall be issued for the transportation of cotton by such com pauy without permission from the Com missioner of luternal Revenue. Be fore the cotton is shipped the owner must obtain the permission of the as sessor of the district in which it is pro duced, saying by what route it is to be shipped, &.c. The net weight is to be ascertained by deducting lour per cent, from the gross weight. The consignor of the cotton ghall scud duplicates of the bill of landing to the assessor who issued the permit for the removal, who shall mail one to the collector of the district to whom the cotton is assigued. If the assessor finds the cotton has left his district without his having received these duplicates he may immediately assess the tax thereon, ami without a satisfactory explanation is giveu he will issue no more permits to the person so ia default. When cotton arrives at the receiving district it shall be delivered to and re main in custody of the collector until the taxes are paid thereon, and all ne cessary charges. These to be paid in ninety days from date of the permit. Here follow the instructions to the collector receiving it, who shall hold the cotton till the tax is paid. The collector is not to permit the owner of the cotton or his agent shall not have possession of the cotton until the tax is paid. If the tax is not paid in ninety days the collector will obtain the tax by distraint aud sale of the cotton. Any person who violates these regu lations with the removal of cotton shall be fined $100 for every bale so remov ed, or imprisoned for not mora than a year, or both. All vessels or vehicles used in trang porting the cotton shall be foyfaited to the United States, aud all the potton so transported shall be forfeited tp the Uqitsd Spates. i "Wake Forest Coi.legk.

After from the 86$, ajsjiiting The Real Beasta? of the Reconstruction Acts of CoBgress. j From the Round Table ' The plain meaning of the pseado Rcconstructiou acts of Congress, now being pushed to their most mercileis consummation, is simply this: First--To register iu the South the entire negro population and such whites" is may unite with them iu supporting tje radical party in Congress. Second-i-To prohibit the registration of tie vast majority of the whites who have a real iutercst in the quiet and proj pcrity of the country. Third To submit to the voters of the States thus registered the question whether they will not hold a convention for the re construction of their States under the Congressional plan. Under this mode of procedure it may bo seen what1, a hopeful future lies before the OTuth and the whole country. Either States will vote for convention or convention. The whitevote will largely cast against convention; the present military rule, with all te fir U disadvantages, at least affords protec tion, while reconstruction such as his been perpetrated in the State of Tc uessee gives little protection but o negro brigands. The radical whiti and the negro voters who are intercf ted in subverting all decent rule and authority will of course unite in favr of convention. Now, suppose althoui the case is hardly possible that, the convention is by such a mockery if suffrage rejected. Then the radicajj will avail themselves of tho cry of Southern contumacy; Mr. Steven' 'mild confiscation" is brought into play; the South is wholly ruined jjy tuis villainous atrocity for merely siy ing, as our generous Congress has invi ted her to say, that she prefers tie rule of military satraps to the barter rule of uninstructed negroes aud white bravos. On the other hand, supjose aud this is the only supposition jusifi ed by the registration which is being made that a convention is desired Then it is practically a negro convtn tion. It will frame a constitution that will throw the whole power of tie State into the hand of negroes aid white men who hopo to profit by die suffrages of the nogrooa. The pres cription of white men will be mare sweeping than Con gross-ioual proscrij tion. Confiscation of the property tf white men by their negro rulers will be sure to follow; and the iudirect con fiscation will be more destructive than confiscation outright. The ruling class having no property themselves, wiliJ look upon the transfer f their subjects' j property into their own possession as ; the one great end of government. With a penniless negro Legislature to tax, and defenceless white men to le taxed, the issue cannot long be doubt ful. Iu every county taxes will be laid iu the same way by negroes upn white men. In the towns and cite negro councilmen will vote thomselves large salaries, create unccessary o filers for purposes of plunder, and for l.ke ends undertake enormous jobs of fanci ful public improvement. Justice ad ministered by net-ro magistrates wilt be a farce; redress of wrongs will be impossible. Liberty of outrage will be amply secured. The liberty of death will be the only liberty secured to men whose crime is that they were boru white. TJie Jury Orders in Georgia forrcspop. dence bttveeu Judze ttcese and (itn. Pope. Aigusta, Ga., Sept. 23. Judge Reese, of the Superior Court, writes to Gen. Pope that he cannot carry out the recent jury order, the same being in violation of the laws of Geor gia and the State and Federal Consti tution. Judge Reese claims that reg istration is eutirely optional, and not compulsory, aud because a niau who may be otherwise a loyal citizen docs not register it is no reason why such man should be excluded from serving on a jury. General Pope replies that the mili tary bills give him the right to set aside any State law which comes in conflict with them. Orders 53 and 55 were issued by virtue of the power vested in him by Congress lie con siders the jury orders necessary to the exeoutiou of the Reconstruction acts, which became laws in the manner pro vided by the Constitution. As the questiou of constitutionality has been preseuted to the Supreme Court, and that tribunal has decided that it had no jurisdiction, the further considera tion of that question by subordinate military or judicial officers is scarcely admissible. General Pope concludes by requiring Judge Reese to carry out his orders. Judge llccse, in a second letter, goes oyer similar ground, arriving at tho conclusion that he cannot conform to Ueueral Po.pe's orders, but shall continue tdie dutips of his office as heretofore until prohibited. General Pope thpq requests Judge It. to resign, which thp latter refuses te do, but says he considers Pope's letter as a positive prohibition against the further exercise of judicial powers. General Beauregard and the Xev York E&nresii. Baltimore, September 19th, 1867 To the Editors of the Baltimore Gazette: Dear Sirs I notice in your paper of yesterday an article copied from the New York Express pf the 17th inst., in which certain political opinions are stated to have beeu expressed by me at a dinner given to me by a frieo4 at the New York Hotel. The diuner was a private one, and the statement of the Express, being but a brief and incom plete abstract off -she remarks which I made whilst conversing with the lew friends present, conveys an erroneous irupression of the views expressed by me on that occasion. Being still an "outlaw" in my own native country, I do not feel called upon to publicly uphold its Govern ment, especially at this time when the country is divided in opinion as to whether Congress or the Executive constitute "the Government." Bat I am free to state that unless the Con ucrvative element of the natiou soon awakens to the dangers which threa ten the liberties of the country, ljcou fidently believe that Its form' of Gov ernment will, e.re long, be changed to a military despotism', after a " period of anarchy more or less prolonged. Yours, very truly, G. T. Beauregard. Modification of Sickles' Order If 32. Charleston, Sept. 16. The fol lowing is the order issued by Genera Canby in full: GENERAL ORDERS NO. 89. Hkad'qrs 2'j Military District, ) Charleston, S. C., Sept. 14, 17. J Paragraph two of General Order No. 32, dated May 30, 1867, is modifi ed as follows: All citizens assessed for taxes, aud who shall have paid taxes for the current year, and who are qualified, and have been or may be duly registered as voters, are hereby duly qualified to serve as jurors. It sjiall be sufficient ground of challenge to the competency of a person drawu as a juror that he has not been duly registered as a voter. Such rights of challenge aiay be exercised in behalf of the people or of the accused in all primiual proceedings, and by either party iii all civil act ion or proceedings. Any requirement of a property qualifi cation lor jurors in addition to the qualifications horein prescribed is here by abrogated. The governors qf Xorth and South Carolina respectively are hereby au thorized and empowered to order, if it should be necessary, speoial terms of courts to be held for the purpose of re vising and preparing jury lists and to provide for summoning and drawing jurors in accordance with the require meuts of this order. By command of Brevet Maj. Gen. Ed. R. S.Canby. Louis V. Caziare, Aid-de-Camp, Acting Assistant Adjutant General. The following is Paragraph 11., of General Orders Xo. 32: "All citizens asscscd for taxc3, and who shall have paid taxes for the cur rent yoar aro qualified to serve as jur ors. Jt shall be the duty of the pro per civil officers charged w'lth provid ing lists or jurors, to proceed within their several jurisdictions, without, delay, and ascertain the names of all qualified persons, aud place them on the jury fists, and from such revised lists all jurors shall be hereafter sum moned aud drawn in the manner re quired by law." Order No. 32 made every person who had paid the curreut taxe3 eligi ble as a juror; Order No. 89 makes eligible only those who have paid tax es and are qualified and registered ro ters. E very person, therefore, in this State, who is disfranchised by law or who does not register, will be ineligi ble to serve as a juror. ia Epidemic South. An old citizen of Texas informs us that the epidemic which rages v. Lth such malignity iu some parts of the South and is gradually extending, can not be arrested at present by any hu man agency. Frost will check its ravages, but even the limit thus pre scribed allows a period of four or five weeks in which the disease will pre vail unrestrained. The middle of Oc tober is the earliest date that can be fixed for the return of cold weather. It is remarked that the disease thus far has prevailed chieflv amon& those iu middle life, occasionally carrying off persons supposed to have been accli mated but findiug most of i;s victims auiong the class of citizeus recently arrived from other States. For this reason none should now vonturo to enter Texas who have not already had experience with "Yellow Jack." Even the latter are liable to attack if brought into contact with infected clothing, or if they enter rooms lately occupied by sufferers from the disease. 'Ihus far very few children are numbered among th-; victims, in which respects the prevailing epidemic differs essenti ally from the hist severe visitation iu the year 1853. Xeic York Journal f Commerce. Is xot tuis Treasonable Talk. The Mobile Times of September 11. says the following language was used at a late meetiug of the Loyal League in that city by its President. Mr. Gus tavus Ilortou: "Wc have at last reached the time when our Leagues will be able to do f active service for the good cause. The arch traitor, Johnson, aud his military puppet, Grant, have conspired to rob this revolution of its legitimate fruits, and undo the great work of President Li-jeoln. But they are mistaken. General Grant is not the liberator of your race, he had it butchered on every occasion, ta spare his Dutch and Irish hirelings, and, knowing he can not get your votes, ho turns to those mercenaries for support. He will, however, soon find that the colored citizens, led by faithful and devoted friends, will raise against him a storm which will sweep him and his allies from the field quicker than did the rebels at Shiloh. But you must be prepared; look to your arms, and be ready to defend, with your best heart's blood, the freedom you have so valor ously conquered. Rev. Geo. T." Williams.

We clip the above from the Southern Churchman: Although the grand jury squashed the indictment in Mr. Wil liams' case, he has been forced to the conclusion that his usefulnesses at an end and hence his request to be de posed from the ministry. While all will regreat the sad necessity which has terminated in such a result, we believe none will doubt the propriety of such action.

This is the issue now in all tho South ern State;-; in which elections are pend ing, and for us to vote for a Conven tion which will be in the hands of the negroes and their profligate allies, would be not only to do a wong to ourselves, but to thos people at the North who believe iu a white man's party.

I.OUIS, MO. I DESIRE TO CALL TnE ATTEN tion of Farmers who may be in want of Cotton Gins to the fact 1 hat at all the im portant trials made last Fall, OUR "STAR" GINS were the most successful, and of consequence received the first premiums. At New Or leans, and at St. Louis, Mo., we came in competition with all the Girs hitherto in fa vor with the Southern farmers, and in each case we were victors. Lat season our Gin was known, as the EMERY BROS. "TAR" GN In consequence of the lactthat many per sons have confounded it with another kind, SIMILAR ONLY IN NAME, we have been compelled to leave out the name Emery anil to insist on the title " STAR." It is proper to remark that this mistake of con rounding kinds is almost universal in those counties where our Star G,ins were never sold. Nearly all the Staf " 5in$ sold in Eastern North Carolina last Fall were sold by myself, and an" had cause to complain have yet to hear trom them. On the con trary, the testimonials that I received have been most gratifying and abundant, some going' so far as to say tney '-would rather pay the price charged the for ''Star" Gin than to use any other kind without charge,' We are willing to stand or fall tipon the merits ot our own Gfn : but we neither wish to stand nor fall upon the merits or demerits of any other kind. We claim the best Gin now made, and Ibis claim we have sustained in every public trial, and private trial also, o tar as we know. Assertion without proof is nothing, li is for those who claim equal: ty with or advantage over s to name the place wheu by aetual test their claims were made good. We can do this.
