There arc among us few practical jblogi.sts so well qualified as the Messrs. Bingham of North Carolina, toVgro&Kee "grammatical text books com bining accuracy of .scholarship with discii lirjal convenience. If it be true, us is Jiffirirfid by the greatest of modern thinkers, in harmony with the declara tions of many other philosopher?, that " the exercise fef teaching is a necessa ry condition of a perfect knowledge ;" eertaiuly u zeaLnis ami enlightened family experience of seventy years in this indispensable xercise should have secured an extraordinary degree of scholastic proficiency. A careful oxuniinatiou of -the Revis ed Edition of Col. .Bingham's Latin Grammar, and a rigid comparison of! its merits with those ,of similar Puro pean and American syurks ulready in use ampng us, have aiFewded us sincere pleasure in the conviction of its decided superiority in many imp&rtant particu lars, and, especially, of its ran -quailed arailuVdity as an introductory Latin tl'ossLaok. In the Teacher's library, of couse, there can be no substitute for exhaustive treaties of the (Herman mas ters ; and we rank Dr. Harrison's Ex position as a philosophical work of the Lighest -value to the Instructor for pri vate consultation. Rut, as a primary text book, both for those who are just beginning the study of the language, j after s me difficulty was carried.

Bingham. " The usual school practice," remarks Prof. Youmans, in his receutable volume on the "Culture Demanded by Modern Lifo." fi The usual school-practice of thursting the young iuto the grammar, Gvsri of their native tongue, is well known to be one of the wost efficient means of the artificial production of stupidity ; but the habit of introducing them to a foreign language through this gateway, is a -still more flagrant outrage. The natural method of ac quiring speech is ,he way we all acquire it ; Cue know ledge of words first, then their combination into sentences, to be followed by the practical use of the language ; rules and precepts uay then ho intelligently applied. But to begin with these is to put the complex be fore the simple, the abstract before the concrete, geuerals before particulars, und, in short, to invest the natural or der of mental pr&ce&ses, aii to -work ,th" mind backward, under the plea of disciplining it." A e would adjourn the consideration Of every otr-cr ciccllcncj of Uiughaui S .work, (and they are not a few,) to elwoll briefly upon the distinctive and important characteristic that it is the only Latin Grammar in the English liuguago, that teaches the natural method of acquiring , a Lnowdedge of this most desirable of foreign tongues, by introducing short vocabularies, and reading exercises.

" Out of pure, blind sympathy with railway trains," says the acute Do Quincey, " men will very soon begin to t?ot through the streets, and, in the next generation, unconsciously, they will take to cantering." Time the gain of time is the most momentous lever in this rapid age. Bingham's Latin Grammar dispenses with the necessity ot creeping through the dull odds and ends-'of an artificial aud intermin able' Reader, and puts the power of ac quiring a clear and practical know edge of a language which is the foundation f one third of our vernacular, into the hands of the children of our com mon-schools. All honor, then, say we to the noble North Carolina Scholar who has so far distanced every other competitor in this most useful department of popular edu cation ! Let every Teacher adopt this very best of preparatory Latin text-books. Whoever wishes to learn the Latin language with readiness and accuracy, cannot possibly make a better begin ning than by procuring " Bingham's Latin C ramniar." 31 r. John Noiiiucf, a white man, and one whom the people of Edgecombe county once delighted to honor, added nothing o his radiaul laurels on Tues day last. Ve arc at a loss to find a proper clas sification for the conduct of this man in the molting of Tuesday, conduct so ut terly unbecoming a Southern gentle iu3u, that no intelligent negro could be fouud to imitate or approve it. We pity the man in his degradation, and would gladly spare him the contempt ol his former friends and fellow-eitiz -ns, had we not a duty to perforin, in which vvc cannot consult indication. Mr. Not fleet was pained to see the whitemen ami negroes movin hanno oious'y together in tho county, and in the inteiost of his radical masters, he at!empt"d to break up the meeting, by oiiving I ruin it every one participating except those of his own depraved sen timents and feelings of enmity f ;r their kind He was ru t a dele -rate to th? County Convention, but he went t the meeting as soon a it was called with a n solution in his baud that was pre pared before he left home. Iu order to be able to present and defend his reso lution he induced, by a very irregular and diidttpd proceeding, one of the colored delegates to tii"ve his admis sion to a seat in the body, a motion that of course was carried as soon as made. The follow ioj is the resolution intro duced by Mr. Nortlect, as the Conven tion was about to go into au il ction of delegates ro the State Convention ; u lt?snivc7, That o nersoii shall be con- si.-.ert'ii ttic nominee oi tins nicetm? mi loss j lie m-ui; iniust-n l n cil " (1 II. s t'icciioil to the Constitiuiunul Convention, to vote therein t'oreonlerring the elective franchise on all such persons as are entitled to vote for delegates to said Convention, as provid ed fur l.y ct it" Congress, leaving him fieo to vote (or coni'i-rring the elective franchise on ail such persons as arc now excluded by said act of Congress, us he may think proper. ' Mr. Not fleet proceeded to defend his I resolution ;it soma Irn.rth in whirdi hr. was aided by a Mr Turner, colored do legate, who pioposcd to go a little fur ther, and pledge the nominee noi to re move the disability now resting on the disfrancLi-cd. At thw stage of the game it was icoved by one of the white delegates, that Mr. Juo. L Bridgers be allowed a seat-in the Convention, which xniving out au alter inc worn ion- gross" in the line, and inserting " and to vote for conferring the elective fran-' chise on all who are now disfranchised, except for crime" which was .finally adopted. We have alluded to the above merely to show the animous of Mr. Norfleet, against the people of the community in which be was taised, and toward those win for so many years retained him iu one of the county offices in the State; as wull ns to compliment the good sense aud feeling of the meeting, in not adop ting the resolutions without the amend- unt, the credit of which does not at- tach to Mr. Norfleet. Assuming that no true and right thinking man can vote for a Conven tion, understanding, we Cod that General Canby has left us no alterna tive but to vote a'jxiust a Convention, and we ought so to act in conceit aDd haimony, as to defeat the measiue, which can easily be done, with a white majority of over thirty thousand in the State. While thoroughly opposed to Con vention, we rather advised non-action so far as that question alone was con cerned, but at the same time held it to t c . 1. .. .! . : .1 t ... oe 01 me uise imporiauee iilat we vote for delegates. As we vwero lately ap prehensive, it is decide! hot qq ticket will be counted that has not Conven tion ANT) Delegates, Foa or Against a CONVENTION followed by the names of the delegates or delegate Christian and Surname in full. The following letter from the head quarteis of General Canby, removes all doubt cn the subject. Hr;AU?:irA'.''i-'-Rs.2i), ATii.iTA'tY District, ) Charleston, S. C, Nov. 0, 18G7. ) JIe..trx. lit-time, Dimhain and Mc Dan if I, Editors North Carolinian, AVilson., ,N. C, CJextt.kmkx : In reply to your commu nication ofjhe 2Sth alt., I am instructed by the Commanding General to state that the acts of reconstruction have no discre tion as to the subject referred to by you: only those votes for delegates which con forms to the acts of Congress by being in scribed cither "for" a convention, or 'against" a convention can be counted in the can vas3 of votes. , Very respectively, . lour obedient servant, Coloncl D. M. Carter, of Beaufort coun'y, addresses a two column ad a half-letter, through the Raleigh' isenti-. ue,-to the Honorable John Pool, in which the writer takes decided ground against a Constitutional Convention of the people of North Carolina. If the "proof of the pudding is chewing the bag " as we have been taught, then Colonel Carter's opposition to " manhood suffrage" is Dot without season. For as he candidly admits, he sat a gues. at the Hidden-Harris feast at Raleigh last Spring, and partook of the Negro politically seasoned, to the fullest extent, and now ho frpely con fesses thnt he does not like him as a steady diet that such food is uuwhclc- some to the body politic. We cannot boast Colonel Carter's experience, but our aversion to universal suffrage quite as great, and in his view of opposition to Convention, we quite agree with him We have not room for the letter this issue, and will not. dwell or comment thereon, further than to state one of the reasons which influence the Colonel to oppose the Congressional plan of re construction. The letter is replete with argument against the measure, the sub ject thoroughly treated, aud the objec tions stated in that clear and coneise manner peculiar to the distinguished abilities of the writer. The principal objection stated to the reconstruction plan of Congress is that it depreciates intelligence, and fixes a premiua rm ig noratme, thut the franchise is to be so regulated that ten millious of white people are placed in political subjection to lcrs than four millions of iguoraut blacks. We Tjn forget the past errors of Colonel Cater, and forbear comment and ciiricism on that portion of hi- let ler which touches upon his wir record, if he will lend the weight of his talents .imlin flue nee toward defeating the odious measure of negro supremacy about to be thrust upon us And in conjluion we would say to the reader, that if one of C'doiml Car ter's past views and conduct, Cods it proper to oppose Convention, there is no impropriety in others doing so on strictly Constitutional grounds. As Democrats we say to the people of North Carolina, Votk Against Con vention ; and to be ready for the emergency, in the event that a Conven tion is calico, vote for men of principle to represent you, and thereby prevent radical legislation. .lisando'ird Laads. General Grant, has issued the fol lowing order to the eifficers of the Bu rcau of Refugees, Freedman aud Aban doned Lands, which looks, in unrecou structed eyes, very unrepublican in spirit. The right of the United States Gcv evrunient to seize upon the lands and property ot persons who lult tlicui when it was not safe to remain at home, has never been very clearly defined to the satisfaction of Justice, aud we question if auy government short of an absolute monarchy ever fathered an order the equal of this.

A telegram from New Orleans, in forms us of the arrest by General Ord, of Colonel W. II. McCardle, Editor of the icksburg Times. The cause as signed for the arrest, was personal de nunciation of General Ord. General Ord has been regarded by the Southern people as the best and kss tyrannical of all the Military Com manders, and it will be rcmeiubered that Congress refused to include him iu the vote of thanks passed, at its last session for meritorious and faithful dis charge of dut;es to the Commanders of the Military districts of the South. WTe have therefore formed a very favorable opinion of General Ord as a .Commander, and are forced to the con clusion, that this act was not one of pure and simple. tyranny and abuse of power, hnt the result uf au jndiscre tionary abuse of th liberty of the press, ; by our esteemed cotemporay of the 1 Times. At all events, we deem it in better taste to -suspend Judgement against ei'-ier, until the facts are known. ; The Cotton Tax. The New York Chamber of Com merce, has resolved to rueujoyialize Congress, for a repeal of the, la, on Cotton, as have also the Merchants oIV Philadelphia. The New Yo;k 3Ier-' chants present the fcUftjrjpg: Whereas, The Aalue of cotton is less than half as much as twelve months ago, owing to causes of no.emiprary natu,re ; therefore, jReszlicd, That the present tax on cotton is .unjust and oppressive, be- caus.no other important agricultural lurdenpd in li:e . manner, is considered r . 1 and climate which arc the best in tlje world for the production1 of cotton, so far, as known, the continuance of the tax is glarins waste of national re sources ; that while the tax discourag es the production of cotton in our own country it encourages it abroad, to the great detriment or our shipping inter est and of the internal trade of the United States; that the tax is injurious to the freedmen and the laborers in the South, because it obstructs the cultiva tion of land and employment of labor ; that the present value of cotton is so low iu the interior of the South that the fax amounts nearly to 20 per cent', upon the gross value ; therefore the tax ought to be abolished with the least possible delay. , - Address of the Saiional Democratic Com reittee. The following is the National Ad dress of the Executive Committee of the Democratic party, which being our own thunder, and teeming with patriot ism, we appropriate. It commends itself to every country loving man through out the Uuiou.

It is not our object to specify iu detail the rea sons that ought to govern the action iu this crisis of all sincere friends of the true principles of our Government. They are weighty aud manifold. They appeal to the reason and judgment of the people with the same force and spirit which .conquered the independ ence of America, sustained her honor and glory iu 1812, added to her re nown iu 184t, and preserved her unity and iutcgrity in 1SG1. It is our coun try calling upon her patriotic sons to do their duty. It is our mother extend ing her bands to her children for sup. port.

Every recollection oi' the glorious past, jr.very remembrance of the mighty deeds and mighty names of our heroes and .our martyrs, every con.-ideiotion in the pre sent, peace, concord, fraternity, Union, prosperity and happinets, all demand that in the hour of the coming action every true soldier of American Inde pendence, of the Constitution id' liber ty and of lav.' shall be found in line of battle.

If the lives of men are to be measur ed by experiences and emotions, the people of this country arc already be yond the patriate! s in age. Events, the most momentous and exciting, suc ced each other with the rapidity and tumult of breakers on a storm beaten co;st; ar.d by the time the public mind begins to glow tranquil, alter some great commotion, another grand event thunders up on the bench, to be suc ceeded by another and another, and still another. We are yet standing with the flush on our faces from the late elections, aud blent with the de tails of these, comes the announcement that Mr. Davis is positively to be tried on the 12th of the present mouth. The trial of Hastings, which thrill ed the English public for so long a period, or that of Burr, which excifc our fathers, will both pale before the supreme importance of the issue in this case. Ten States which boasted themselves sovereign and independent an ill-fated Confederacy which aspired to national existence, will be arrainged in the person of Mr. Davis. We shall survey the scene with profound and uuspeakable emotion. The moral nuestion has long siuee been settled in our own consciences. e have the comfortable conviction in our own minds that our actions were not un worthy good soldiers,, or a Christian people, but, the great legal question has now to be argued by the most able judicial minds of the country. The issue of Law has 10 be passed on by Court aud Jury, and the civilized world will look with curious interest on the great trial of the great prisoner of State. The verdict of posterity may at least be anticipated, and, whatever may be that of the panel, we feel warranted in the confident expectation that Ex-. President Davis will at tho end go forth either as a monument of the justice of the jury, qr of the clemency of the Executive. The occasion will not be without its advantages. The eyc;)sporation of the public mind of the North has been relieved by time and thought, aud the counter irritation of .other absorbing questions. The argument can be followed with dispassionate minds and sober judg ments, and when the prisoner stands at the bar the whole Republic will salute him as a man pure in life, hon est io heart, bold in action, charitable to his enemies, high in his courage. in short a noble ornament to the gr.oat historic gallery of America.

Correspondence of the Southerner. Jacksonville, Fla., ") t ', Nov. 5th, 1867. Dear t SoijtiI rn W:-tWhiIf no one is more fond than 4 of his friends or more highly appreciates the benefits of the preas, yet there, is nq man that considers it a greater task to write friendly letters, or sorrespond for a newspaper than your correspondent. Being though a stranger in a strange land with nothing to engage my at tention, and as idleness ; by no; means suits my temperment, I have determin ed to spend a little of my . time in writing you a letter. Possessed of a Robinson CruSoe turn of mind nev er knowing wheft Well enough ofLbttt liking a change though it may be, as it often is with me, for the worst, on the 23rd of Jast month, I bade aieu to my native town of Wiiliamston and em barked iu a cart with a blind bose for Tarboro' for the purpose of taking the Wilmington and Weldon Rail Road. Without the occurence of any incident worthy of note, J arrived in your towa on the night of my departure and next morning taking the train for Wilming ton, was landed safe and sound in that " so called " city about eight o'clock p. m. Having been stationed in that place for nearly a year, during the late war and while there formed many valu red acquaintances, I resolved to lie over for the purpose of seeing them until Friday night, which I according ly did. On Friday morning I walked through the place and many were the familiar faces with which I met aud the greetings I exchanged. Being of a social disposition aud to a late period never objecting to cultivating it. by di iukiug " wine which maketh glad the heart of mau," I declare plainly 1 should have got what Gil Bias terms half se.s over provided, two things had not fctcod in the way viz : the want of good and frequent treating companions and the resolution on my part of total abstiuence. It being Court week many persons from the country were present and as where the carcass is there will the vultures be gathered, so where suit ors aje there a large numbrr of the tho legal fraternity are wont to con gregate, there were many lawyers in attendance. Judge Warren presided and that too with an ease and impar tiality, a grace aud a dignity that would have received the applause and com mendation of England's long since de parted legal luminary Sir Matthew Hale. Oa Friday night, J oxk the Manchester road and after au unavoida ble dtlay of a day in Florence, S. C. which is the last place on either of the four quarters of the Globe, I got into Charleston at one o'clock p. m. on Sunday. There, though as at honiepe cuuiary loss, bts fallen upon all. I deiivd much comfort from the fact that I had fallen in jvith a people very much my stripe those w ho ki.ew uothiug. The simplest en quiry by me from men who looked as though they ought to know something would elicit the reply of " I don't kuow sir." Whatever spark of belief I had of the ti uth of the doctrine of physiogr nomy was forever put to flight by the ignorance of those wise looking men; and I resolved in the future to try the latin infunction "Ae crede aim inicalari" which I believe upon interpretation eueaus, trust not too much to appear ances. My chief object of iuquiry was in regard to tl'e leaving of a-bout for Jacksonville, which is by far the cheapest and most comfortable line of travel. No one though, I re peat again, knew anything, not even the hotel keeper to whom perhaps ig norance is bliss, as it is to his interest to detain travellers. I missed the Sun day night's boat and had to remain un til that of Tuesday night. Knowing no one nor not caring to form any ac quaintances, I therefore had nothing to do but stroll about the city and play the Mr. Paul Pry. Charleston though in days gone by the seat of considera ble trade and business activity, is now dead, dead, dead. While the stores of her merchants are filled with large stocks of goods awaiting tho arrival of country purchasers, yet they come not, and owing to the stringency of mone tary affairs, failures of old established, houses are of daily occurrence. When contemplating the present of the city and casting ?.fy mind back to its pa t I could not but think of Jeremiah s ter rible prophecy of the downfall of the city of Jerusalem. Detention at an expense without business is awful. Minutes are hours and days weeks. Tuesday night came and on board of the Str. Dictator came I. We arrived in Savanuah, taking the sea route, on Wednesday where I remained uutil three o'clock. We then put to sea and, to be brief, on Thursday meridian reach ed Jacksonville where I shall remain a while. Tho town, or rather as the city fathers call it, " city " of Jacksonville as is perhaps wll known is situated in Duval county and contains about two thousand inhabitants. The rail r,oad to Talahassee terminating her, and the St. John's River rolling njear by access and departure to ijt, provided one has largo numb.er.ed stamps, is quite easy It is a great resort for people having pulmonary diseases and in many cases a radical cur,a is effected.
