Platform and Resolutions Adopted by the Democratic-Conservative Con vention at Greensboro', May 2, 1872. The following resolutions and plat form wero adopted by ths Conven tion: . Tlie Democratic Conservative party of North Carolina, in Convention as sembled, do declare that all experi ence proves that in a free govern men those to whom power haa been delo -gated are proiie to enlarge Its sphere Kit titizens. Thej present condie ot our country demands anmeea o y a designat whatever nat bn tert nv , io oflli au srtereorn roes ptaodipto h,f greater than any with which our Gov ernment has been menaced since its tnization. Constitutional Gov ernment andi'vil It.w are threatened with annihilation, and military p-ov- ernment und bayonet law substituted in their stead. Immense sums not needed fcr any legitimate purpose are drawn from the people .by means of a system of taxation vexations in the extreme and as unequal as the inge nuity of the maker could fashion it imposing heavy burdens upen the people, not only to support extrava gance and waste by government offi cials, but also to meet tho demands of wealthy monopolists, who seek to convert the vholo government into an immense machine by which the publifc is to be plundered for their benefit. This system has produced an amount of official corruption that has astonished the country, and which will, if not soon checked, demoralize the people. The Adminsitration at Washington not only fails to correct these evils, but by its conduct encour ages extravagance, peculation and corruption. In order that the patri otic men of the North may not be aided in ; their efforts to reform tho Administraticn by tho Southern StatetV a large number cf the men of most expflriance in inose oihio uio uis franchise and prohibited from takim an efficieipilrt in the management of political an&lrs. In addition to this, and to keep those States under the control of mere retainers and instru ments of the central power at Wash ington, oppressive and tyrannical laws have Veen passed and largo bodios of troops distributed. to overawe the citi . ,I zens and prevent a fair expression of public opinion at the ballot box. Ivesolved, therefore, Itmt the tima has arrived when it becomes tho duty of all parties, without distinction of party, to unite in an honest effort to restore Constitutional Government, an equal and moderate system of taxation, econjmy in expoaditured, honesty among official and universal amnesty, and thus secure tho permanent peace and prosperity of our common coun trv. Resolved. That tho present system of internal taxes on spirits p.ud tobac co is unequal, vexatious and tyranni cal and ought forthwith to bo abol ished and thus by its extinction re lieve the? country from the curse of a numerous herd of cfficc-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 6n the hard earning of a helpless, impoverished and oppressed commu nity. Eesolved, That tho late Radical Convention of this State, by recom mending J. C. Abbott to a seat in tho Senate of tho United States, though ho did not receive one-third of the votes cast, manifested an utter disre gard of the rights of the people of the State ; a contempt of the Constitution of tli9 United States ; and a plain act of Congress, made in pursuance thereof; a preference for the laws of Great Britain, where the minority rule prevails, and tho rights of ma jorities are habitually disregarded. Kesolved, That their endorsement of W. W. Holden, who was deposed from office for gross violations of the constitutions of the Stato,squandering its funfba, ttriA Ulecral arrests of ita citizens, as well calculated to alarm oTir people with the dread that in the event of the return to power of his associates, tho State is to be oppressed with military arrests ; penitentiary and railroad swindles,' and general fcaste, profigacy, fraud and corrup tion.'. ' ' n Resolved, That the general tenden cy both at Washington and in our own State,, of Radical action is en tirely in the interests of monopolists and tho wealthiest classes and for tho Oppression of the mnsses of our coun trymen. And that instead of such conduct, it is the duty of the govern ment to aid, elevate and dignify tho laborer, to whose "efforts mainly, we must look for our prosperity. : Resolved, That education and en lightened public virtue are indispen sably essential in a government of and for the people and wo insist that a fair and just proportion of tho public lands, Or their proceeds, which be long in common to all the States of Union, Bhall be given to them at once for the education of all claese3 of people without distinction of race or color, instead of -being granted by Congress, as thev have heretofore been, under the most corrupting in fluences and in vast quantities to over powering railroad corporations and other monopolists of accumulated wealth so dangerous to the rights and liberties and welfare of the poonle. Resolved, That while we accept i common Lite. Like Job b w ir horse, and faithfully abide by the coustitu- J he p:niffe.j the L-ttk- from ai'.u-: Shod tion of the United States as it U, -vith j !v i- cheap, aud huwbjg is cii .-ap, and its amendments including cinauuiu-1 iluny Yt aid DctvLu 3 j ai.ut scriiijua tion and equality before the lav;, thus r - i . i i i . i I comernng equal, civii ana political. rigat3 upon all who are citizens of this Federal liepublic, we oppose and denounce the latitudiuous construc tion which mates the discretion of Congress or the will of the President superior to the Constitution, and un der pretence of enforcing tho laws, destroys tho most inrportant provis ions securing the personal liberty of the citizen' and dwarfs tho State themselves into the mere provinces or corporations under the control of a central government, with no rights reserved to them or the people except such only as that central government may choose to confer. . Iieselyod, That wo desire a real and not inerelj a pr&tendwd-civil ser-. j-viea 'reform, and that wd believe the one-term principle for the Presidency would greatly tend to produce that desirable result. Kesolved, That the patronage of the government should not be brought in conflict with tho freedom cf elec tions, and that the elective franchise should be freo and un trammeled. Eesolvod, That the amendments to the Constitution, proposed by the last Legislature, if adopted, tend materi ally to benefit the State ; and unhes itatingly recommend their support, to all citizens without distinction of party. Kesolved, That all secret political societies are dangerous in a free gov ernment; engender violence, combi nations arrainst the noace of socie ty, insecurity of person and property, and ought to bo discountenanced by all good citizens. liesolved, That as an independent press is tho palladium of American liberty ; the Democratic press of the State for their able, manly and per sistent defence of constitutional and civil liberty, deserve, aud are hereby tendered, the grateful .acknowledge ments and hearty thanlis of the peo ple of the State. Sx-Goverrer Allen on EL A. Pollard. The following artie'e, fr ni thft pen of Ex-Governor Allen, of Louisiana, and now editor of the Mexican Times, is clipped from that paper of the 0th of January, ft is a composition worthy oi the immortal Junius. In its power, i;i its force of bitterness and sentiment, it is an unequalled piece of writing. Of the personality of the article we have nothing to Guy, but submit is to tur readers as a specimen of most ; extraordinary ccniporition. j no civii war in America is eu Jea, and tlie '-banner of tho b ir" that waved over Jackson and joined upon the traak of Stuart's reckless "riders has been put away as men hide tho trhiekets of a dear, dead love. A'though t he blood of Virgiui i's b, sfc and bravest is ot yet dry in the val leys, nor has the grass grown over the premature graves of the mauly.Cou t'ederates who fell before Petersburg, yet Mr. E. A, l'ollard, a pretty writer aod talented editor, in a long news paper article, denounces ex-lVesideut Davis, Gtuerals Lee, Johnston ap i Ueauregard, and says ''the South ?ru people disgraced" themselves forever when they refused to fight to determi nation ; and that they lack 'courage and endurance statesmanship and intelligence." lie criticises campaign-:, ridicules strategical movements, sneers at retreats, and laughs at every heroic effort of the brave tnea who have left tj his history au immortal name. Who is Mr. E. A. Pollard ? II : U a Virginian, the editor of the Rich mond Examiner, "and the author of the "Southern History of the War.'' We have grief for the first, blu hes for the second, and contempt for the last. During all those years of carnage and of blood, this Richmond Examiner was an insatiate fiend of opposition and hatred. Siep by step it broke down the brave, food heart of Sidney Johnston, again and again it iaecratad aod gored the scusitive soul of Beaure gard ; wck cfter wrek it denounced the heroic efforts of Joseph E. John ston; and now, when Jefferson Davis is chained amid the waves of Lis rock ribbed prison, it tries to stab his repu tation and his honor. It is not often that r.en like Pollard and .Jordan can gioat over tne agony of ench a spirit and the degre Jation of . such a name. It is not often that such a bosom as Lee's 13 laid brefor the thrust cf every ruffian's spear, or the dagger of every coward's hand. It is not often that a desolated nation writhes under the blows of its children aod the cruelties of its own offspring. It is not often that the world furnishes human hyeLas to ex .ume the bodies of her sainted dead, and howl in horrid delight over the revolting feast. Pollard's mother State lies prostrate in the dust, her hearthstones desolate and her idol shattered. All orer the land he can see her bereaved daughters weepiug for the young, fresh faces that looked back to them from the heat and yellow dust of the coufiets just before tho horses feet trod them do?m lie cm almost hear the brecscj from the Wilderness singing ther me'an choly dirges over Stuart,nnd Ashby, and Pelhatn, and Hill, and Jackson, dear to God. He has no love, nor veneration, nor tenderness, nor pity for any oi the?; but tear.ng opcu graves of the immortalized dead, he blends them with the living in one sacriligkms anathema of contemptuous hatred. l'ollard wanted extermination, but be was in New York city, bob nobbiug with Greeley, aod tellicg his pleasant way of the four years' war. He want- ed fifty thousand men to fi, ;ht a mil- lion to the death beside them aud but he never fell in r .-..IT.. l, NUMBER 30 are cheap; and sincerity, faith, honor, chivalry manhood! how pure and un popular. Drape tho picture of a nation its' agony, and cover its laurels with the mounting oypress. ' Furl the conquer ed banner with a farewell look, aud shriiie its memory ia our hearts; but to the brutal hrrdihood of those who curse and villlfy a ruiued race, give vengeauce. scorn, and a uever-dyiug contea.pt. llibtoiy tells how Cjrijlaneus halted his victorious regions beyond the Yellow Tiber, but Nero fiddled a good ly nice while Home was buTrii.g. ximid the graces of his kindred, the anguish and di'pair of brave men in their crushing overthrow, an.id the blue skies and jsreee f'eLs ol Lis ua-. tivity. 1?, A. Pollcid dips his pen. iu the gall of the New finglaod h;ite and writes the record of his owu ovedust iug iufr.uiy aud disgrace. The Land of Ophir 'Tho gold ot Ophir." What vis ions of untold weilth and mor ; than regal splendor are awakem-d in our minds by these familiar words, wnieli have coujc down taus from the days of the 'great kings" of Israel! We think . the glories of the temple, the altar of gold, the table, of gold, the "candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side and five on the left, before the oracle, with the Cowers, and the lamp?, and the tongs of gwld." In the royal palace the same "costly metal glittered everywhere 011 "the great throne of ivory, which was "over laid with pure gold," in ail the ves sels of the house, and even iu the ar mory, which contained two hundred targets and three hundred shields, all of bbaten gold. The g Id was from Ophir: Hut where was Ophir? It is a question about which scholars have differed very widely. Some have found the place-iu ths south cf Arabia, others in India, others cn tlie eastern coast of Africa. The ' eminent Ccrruan geographer, IV. Pctermiun, of Gotha, .' holds the latter opinion ; aod in a let ter jus" published he announces the interesting fact "the lrti3 locality of the !aud ef Ophir of the L'ible," has just been discovered. Tor some time there have bei'ti rumors of vast struc tures, evidently the wcr.i of civilised men, standing de.-ei ted a id in ruins iu cautheastcra Afric 1. At last au en- ! ferprisiu Gcrm ;a traveler, Jarl Alaucii, has succeeded ia re-tcnin theiu. At a place call .d Ziiubayet, cixty n.nes west of Sofala harbor, ho cam 3 upon rain ed wails of grjat extent, s line of which j are thirty feet lue.h aud fifteen feet thick, a tower, and other similar struc ture3. They are built of hewn gran ite, without mortar, a style which In dir.ates their gieat antiquity. The country around them abounds in gold, and the natives believo tham to hr.ve been constructed by ' white n:eii' iu very ancient times. This, Dr. Pe term-in 11 thinks, was the veritable Ophir from which the navies of Solomon and iliram brought the abii'idiuce cl g 11 wherewith all Phooaiei 1 at-d Ju de;i were euricli' d in their diys. Pat is it not likely that the name of Ophir had a wider significance thau Dr. Petcruiann supposes? There were co gold mines ia those days. Tho an cients knew nothiug of quartz-crushing; all their gold was obtained in the form of dust, and to gain any large quautity of this it mu-t bo col lected over a very exteusivo region. Now, from the earliest times until the days ol'Oi liforuia aud Australia the whole of Africa has been; before all other regions, the "laud of geld." One part of the westers border has long b jrne I hu name of the Gold Coast. Euglish gumeas, it is well known, were so called beoiuse they wero coin ed of gold from Guinea! Tho eastern coast' is. equally rich. The traders of every maritime nation, from the Phco nicidns and tho Arabians to the Portu guese and English, have tfalHekcd for the precious dust at the mouth of every river wliieh Hows from that mys terious inland region "Whnro Afr'c's sunny fountaiaa J'.oli down their guidon saali." Is anything to be learned from the word Ophir itself? Phoenician bailors manned the ships of Solomon which made the voyage to the laud to desig utiiA j, (mm i'nj', the Hebrews doubtless learned its-j ruic. VJtner Phtciicians 'cttled at C-.ae, oil the northern coast of Africai-Vroin these the Romans probably learned the word "Afer," meaning African, from which tho Latin word Africa lV derived. "Afer," as pronounced by the Romans, probably differed very little from "Ophir," as pronounced by the He brews. Both were doubtless derived fronthe l'hwniciao word, whicli must thereof have meant Africa. I" this reasoning is correct, the land of Ophir'' was simply the con tioCDt of Africa, then, as now, tlie in exhaustible source of gold, .The ruins just disojvered by tha German travel ler may have been one ct tne princi pal trading stations of the Phoenicians in that land ; and when we read that the navy of Hiram "that brought the gold from Ophir," brought a No "great plenty of "precious stones," we cannot but bo reminded of tho fact that these newly-found ruins ara very near the rich diamond fields of Somh Africa.
