Tiie following resolutions and pint- form were adopted by the Conven tion ' ., - . V ' v' Th DetrjoGratio Conservatiye jptirty ot xvortb Carolina, in Ur-tyuntion-aa- senibled. do declare that all ezperi? jeiicVproves that in a free government those to whom power has been dele ga'ed are prone to enlarge its sphere and, by usurpatiptis and abuses, en croach upon the rights and liberties of the 'citizens." The presHiit cWndi tion of our country dviuattds an union of all parties, by whatever nanig here tofore designate!, to averi; perils gretiter'thau any with which our Gov ernment has been menaced siifce its organization.' Constitutional. Gov ernment and civil law are threatened with annihilation, and military yov ei n merit and bayonet law substituted in their stead. Immense suuis not aeedd for any legitimate purpose are drawn from the people by means ot a py.-tem of taxation vexations in the extreme and as uneq ial as the injre noity of the t:inker c uld fashion it- imposing heavy burdtns upon the people, not only to support extrava gance and WHsste by government offi cials, but also to nioet the demands of wealthy monopolists, who seek to convert the whole government into an immense machine by which the public is to be plundered fir their benefit. This system has produced an amount of official corruption that has astonished the country, and which wi'l, if not soon chet tcd. d moralize the people. The Adrnv sitratloh at Washington not only fails "to correct these evils, but bv its roiniuot ehcoiir as'' extravagance, peculation and corruption. In order that the ''patri otic men of the North may not be B'ded in their effmts to reform the Administration by the Southern Srat"3, a large number of the men of most experierrce in those State are dis franchised and prohibited from taking an efficient part in the management of political affairs. In addition to this, and to kep those States under the eontrol of mere retainers and instru ments of the central power at Wash- ! in'on, oppres-Me and t rannioal las iJliarnbeen v'assetl and large bodies of ' troops di.etrihuted.to overawe the iti- and prevent a fair expression of ... .' . public opinion at the ballot b.ii: Resolved, therefore, That the fimf! has arrived when it borornes the du'y of all parties, without ' d'stirT?t:iiT. cf party, to unite in an hene-st effort to restore Constitutional Government; an equal and inodi'iat system of tnitdt:on, (-i;ononiy in expenditured, honesty aiuonjr official and nriivto'al amnesty, and thus secure the permanent peai'e j and prosperity 01 our common coun try." Resolved, That the present system of internal taxes on spirits and tobac co is unequal, vexatious and tyranni cal and ought forthwith to bo abol ished, and thus by its extinction re lieve the couutry from the curse of a numerous herd of office-seekers. whose conspiracies and frauds are demoral izing the public mind, and who are harrassing and plundering the peo ple, and, by their extortions, fatten ing on the hatd earning of a helpless, impoverished and oppressed commu nity. Resolved, That the la?e Radical Convention of this State, by recom mending J. C. Abbott to a seat in the Senate of the Uiited States, though tie did not receive one-third of the Totes cast, manifested an utter disre ..11 do. the 1 lull's of 1 he j eojile el tiie State; a contempt of the C n-tit U'ion of the United Sta'e-; and a plain act ot Centres-, made in pnrsance therei of; a preference for the laws of Great Britian. where the minority ru'e pre -aiN. and the majorities are liybjtuall.v disregarded Hesolved.
