The Baltimore Convention The Nomination of Horace Greeley. The great Baltimore Convention met oa Tuesday Ia3t. Ex-Senator Doolitlle, cf Wisconsin, was inade permanent chairman. Mr. Doolittle, on taking his feat, delivered a most stirring speech. The greatest enthusiasm prevailed and the greatest harmony was uianh febted. An imtuansc crowd was in attend ance from all parts of tho CDuntry. A private dispatch iufirui3 us that Greeley was Dominated by a vote of 719 to 13. TZ19 R-adioa.1 Kuklux Attamr.t. to Assassinate the Editor of Thia Paper-Full Particu lars of the Outrage The Fourth of July, 1372, has come and gone. In S3m3 places it va observo i as i i olden t'unei by patriotia orations, fire-workj, In othor places it va not observed at all. In Tarboro it was ma le thu occa sion of a drunken negro Radical doms oas'ratiou unwjrthy subject. any place or It was attoiulj l by a saoovi of pre meditated and pi-tp ire I outrage scarce ly ever perpetrated without tho lim its of ba.birisn, a :d curie 1 out ia a spirit worthy tho fijadi of hell itself. A deliberate plan was made to mur der in aud this purpose was, we ui dersti"!, eiprussel eirly in the in or i; ug, th-j oaly motive being po litical animosity. Unsuspicious of danger aud fiar in.n ) harm from a crowd of uegroes with whom we had bo often mixed ia poliiioal gather iug.i, we weut to the place (I Bpaki:;g iu the capacity ol observing matters aud thiugs for re port iu the ouTUKUNKK ; was in- vited upon the Stand by ,evcr:il white Radicals thereon seated, and accepted the iuvitation. In a short while t!ia procession that had ben parading the streets for several hours, and beaded by two white men yes, men with ichitc skins the only white men observed on the march, filed around the stand. A negro Marshal ordered tho stand to be cleared and though especially in1 vited to a seat thereon, we quietly re tired. Going down the steps wo were grossly and violently insulted by a negro on horseback. This insult came from the niaiu negro leader of the proposed diabolical plan and was given simply and solely to provoke. Giving him ouly a passing notice, we retired to the very outskirts of the crowd, receiving, in our passage through, many opprobrious and insult ing epithets. No one as yet had dared bandy words to our face, supposing that we were fully armed, but just hero it was discovered that, fool-like, we had pre sumed to go iu the midst of such human demons with no defence except a small walking stick. And then bioke forth -the torrent, rushing as if from bell itself. Oh, they had'Bh:g3 at last, unarmed and opposed to more than 500 armed foes ! ! What a gloriDus opportunity to carry out the preconcerted plan of murder with safety to themselves ! ! ! And now the facts while quietly and pleasantly conversing with a Dum ber of intelligent and well disposed colored men, entirely out of bearing of the Stand, a burly negro, specialty deputed for the service and armed with a huge stick, camo into the crowd and insulted us with words that no man with a drop of manly blood in his veins would submit to. Our stick was broken in pieces over the black scoundrels cranium. This blow, so con fidently expected, was the signal for a i . . i- - .1 rfw coinoinc-u atcacs oi nwiu u;au uuj negroes. Fortunately, the rush upon us was o great and everything be came so mixed up that our foes received more blows .from their own friends tLan we did. Two brave colored men, by name, J. T. Scott and Napoleon PattersoD, knowing the determination of murder, seized us bodily and sup ported us down the street. An infuriated mob, unmbcring not less than two hundred, followed with vengeful cries of death and destruction to the "d d ucmocrai. --iyih Lim" "Shoot him" &e. Pistols vere displayed, knives drawa and bludgeons exposed, but thanks to these two colored men, and co one else not even a white man present we entered the premises of Judge Howard. Even at the gate the mub howled 'uriou ly for cur blood, and was or.ly prevented from entering tle yard and house by the determined attitude of Harry Redmond one, of the Town police. An examination disclosed no serious damage, only here end there some slight bruises about the head and body. A short time afterwards we calmly walked toour residence in presence of a number of the rioters who still lingered around, but none dared at tack us then. We enter thus particularly into this matter, because we do not look upon it as personal. It is but tha re suit of what may La expected by our people whenever ca unbridled horde of negroes, led by depraved white men, obtain the ascendency in cur midst. It is Ku Kluxism in its strongest form. In conclusion, vo simply state that we have the best reasons Jjr knowing that the assault was not the result oj momentary passion. It wis deliberately planned before hand, concocted ly infamous mlutc men, and executed by their too willing negro dupes. Why Repeat It ? Who are Carpet Baggers. The Wilmington Star well states that so no of the Radical papers in the State, with conspicuous, disrespect Jur, thjir old enemy Truth, iterate r.vd reiterate the sk-7r"U3 biatemcnt that the Domocrajass ail men who come from the JtTto live among us, as carpet-baggers. This is a n;ost malignant falsehood The people of North (Jarolina ever welcome the gentlemen of means or muscle who come here to make their pcrui i neut homes and to engage in some of tho legitimate occupations of life. Rut when a bumm-ir, a groundling agi tator, a political penitentiary snoak cjme3 to the State fjr the purpose of hoodwinking and cajoling negroes and elevating himself into ofliaj by their votes, wo denounce him as a carpets bagger. We despise such cattle. We cui call them by no lower name than carpet -baggers. The immigrant who comes with an honest intent, whether he be a capital ist with money to invest in developing tho bouudless resources of the State or a laboring man with muscle capital to lay out upon the fields and forests that await his comiug, is welcomed with open arim to the good Old North State. We care not what his politic? may be, so bo brings character, intelligence, and habits of thrift and industry. Lot then the statemeut of the Rdi- cuN, that Cousemtives regard all men who come here from the North a3 car-pet-paggers, bo nailed dwa to the counter; to be known of all men hence forth and forever as an infamous and wholesalo slander, a most foul and malicious lie. A Press Association. At Greensboro, during tho State Coavcntion, a meeting of the editois, representing some twelve or fifteen papers wa3 held, and a committee of three was appointed to prepare and t-ubtnit a plan of organization, together with rules and regulations for the con sideration of the Democratic press of the State. . This committee- consisted of Capt. Nat Atkinson, of the Ashville Citizen, Capt. Saml. T. Williams.of the Raleigh News, and tho editor of this paper. Owing to want of time arid other reasons it was found impossible to hold a sec ond meeting at that time, and, there fore, now tho Raleigh News seggests that the Press of the State assemble at Kittrclls Springs soon after the ad journment of the Baltimore Convention to bear the report of tile Committee, and perfect the plan of tho proposed organization. We consider the idea cx.-oliont, but aro rather disposed ta thia;k the time inopportune. We are now engaged in a mighty State contest and it is tho duty of every mau to be at his post, Tho Press is wielliug an iizrrcnsc influence which should not be allowed to idickcn by any inattention until a glorious victory has been acheivcJ on tho 1st Thursday iu August. Having done our whole duty and assisted in accomplishing that grand result the members of tho Fraternity can then well afford to take a faw days of recreation, combining v?ith it tuaU ness of great importance to all. We would, there.'brejsuggesi that the proposed meeting be deferred uutil after tho State election say about the Sth of Augtrst, when we are sure a large proportion cf the State Press will gladly accept the kind and gener ous invitation of Maj. Biaeknall, the whole-souled Proprietor of Kittrells. A Base and Infamous Circular Our attention was directed on yes terday to a most mendacious circular that some anonymous lib-eibr, assist ed by others who aro afraid to put their names to the document, are scat tering Lroad case over North Caroli na. It was too late for us to notice it thec, as cur matter for the editorial page was already in type and tho form was full. Thij precious di.-cumeut is headed "Read and Circulate-" As we are iniormed, th.j mm who l as diligently slandered hi own pec pie and also endeavored to send fire j for h-gh, 're-pousible a d honor and sword throughout hi3 native . . i , m,, ,f St-tte; who stool up in his place in the' benate and vilified and traduced the character of our best ci'izcos and in voked the terrible piwers of a malig nant and despotic Executive upon a constituency he was sworn to repres sent, i3 sending out this infamous sheet under his own frank. John ooi, U. S. Senate is the frank. Is not this same unscrupulous partizan the author: ho else but John Tool is" equal to such a slanderous task? Wh) but John Pool, who brought' ra n upon II olden by his evil counsel", could have inspired such a document? Who but a murderer at heart tho man who advised Ilolden to employ a notorious desperado and assassin to take the lives of that late Gov. Bragg, and Gov. Graham, Gov ernor Vacce acd others, cou'd- have fabricated such a web of falsehood and representation?. Who but the bastard son ol North Carolina could have concocted such a hideous hell broth in which are mingled overy form of traduction and every ingredi ent of untruth? Whobut John Pool ould have written this b-ise, detesta ble document fairly teeming with falsehoods as black as his heait and . as infamous as his character. This inen dacious circular assails the character of Mcrrimon and all of our State can. didates, and some also who are not on the ticket. It charges corruption and fraud upon gentiemcn of the highest and most irreproachable character. It will be circulated among the igno rant by party hacks, utterly void of truth and honor. It must be met and denounced. Our public speak ers must expose its lies and denounce it in untuistakablo language. The free-and unsubsidizod Pxesa ofjtiw'-S must nail in4 base statements of this scurrilous production to ; the counter and braud the author or authors as liars and slanderers. If the authors can be certainly as certained, an action fee libel ought to be brought againt them at once,, and will be. Wo promise that thia shall be done if the persous who got-this de bauchod, wicked, villianous document up will acknowledge ifie fact. The matter shall bo tested iu our courts if a set of corrupt offiee-diolders- can slander ajd traduce men of virtue and intelligence vith impunity and at will. W e tell our people - to beware of radical lisss. Weeks before we fore warned .that they miht-be lore armed Wis know their dirty trick3, we knew tho abandoned-character of the men who wjre determined to win the -election if money au4 slanders aud false hoods could accomplish it. Watch out trom now-until the day of election for lying circulars. You will fiud them at every cross-road. Me of North Carolina iieed THE WARNING. Sentinel.

The circular is infamously false.scan dalous, and criminal. It imputes to me and other gentlemen, some ou and others off the Democratic Oju?rvative ticket for this State, the most infamous crimes against society and individuals, and it is so false, wanton and Criminal, that it is not suprising that it is sent out to accomplish what evil it may without apparent sanction of, or at taching amenability to, anyone. It ia so. monstrously false and scan dalous that was amazed ta learn that it was seDt out to the peo le tfnder the frank of Mr. P. ol, and I therefore enquired of him, by btter, if it was so sent with his knowledge aud couseut, fie informed me it was, butsays it was a "rehash of newspaper articles." It is indeed a "rehash" made up in such an artful way as to charge iu terms, by suggestion, artful argumentation, aud innuendo against ma' and others,-; the most disreputable crimes and -'conduct against the -people and State aid It illustrates "i spceicof "&Ssprate and disreputablo partisan warfare tht can not be tolerated, much less jdstlfud, among a civilised people ; nor do 1 believe the people of this State of any political pary will da so. , ? So far as I am informed the Radical papers of the State, fruitful as they have been of misrepresentation and falsehood, have dot republished it.

In vindication of niyscli against this wanton attack.it is my purpose ta bring suit agaiust Pool, inibc Superior Court of Wake, reserving to myself to take such other steps iu the future ih'tsvy be deemed proper.

The Radical Ku-Klux on 4th July-What ia thought of It The Rileigh. News, of Saturday, contains tho following dispatch coo ceroing the attempt-to take tha life of the Eiitcv of this paper-on Thursday last by a crowd of infuriated' negroes: Tarboro, N-. C, July 4j. 'The -ith of July was obscrvcS here to-day by a large crowd of negroes. Capt. Riggs, of the Southerner, was present as a reporter. He was assailed by a large number of uegrooa and saved bis life with difficulty,, after having exhausted all his weapons. It is certain the attack was planned before band. Capt. Riggs escaped with a few slight scratches. The authors of the outrage are known, II." The News then lias tha following comments on the dastardly and cow ardly assault and outrage: ' "The people of North Carolica will readwith indignation tha above in. telligence of, a brutal and cowardly attempt to. murder a. citizen of this State by a crowd of infuriated and' de moniao Radicals. :? No cause is alleged for this rea outrage, and thu tact that the plan was presconcerted is proof conclusive that a conspiracy had been formed to put to death a well known and much esteemed citizen - cf tho County of Edgecombe.- The IJadjcals cf that County po doubt bate Capt. Riggs for his bold and, fearless defence of' Democratic principles, aod for his - Exposure ol Radical vili.any and corruption. The dispatch states that the authors of the conspiracy are well known. They, should bo at once held to an swer for their shameless and -dastardly conduct. ' We counsel moderation and; obedi ence to law under provocation and wrong. The people of this State have been, subject from time to time to great and aggravated insults aad cruel ties. The Dmocraticparty lias in 'every instance appealed to them to bear with moderation and patience these indignities. It Ku Klux outrages have been committed by iodividat members of oar party, they have been done against the advice of our leaders. We "remember the address of our Executive, written by the great and lamented Rrago, and signed by Mer-. rimon and others, calling Upon : our people in 1870, when innocent men were hung up by the necks like dogs, to forbear from -acts of-revenge and retaliation, and to endeavor ' to right their grievances by an appeal to the law and ti tha ballot-box. Our party, has never in convention or ' public meeting, endorsed or en couraged the violation of the law by Ku Klux or an other society. 0;i the other hand, the last Radical State Convention publicly and official ly proclaimed itself the ally of lawlesss ness and crime by endorsing unani mously tho past course of Gov. Hol deu including his Ku Klux war iu 1870. Again, (ho voice of the Dcmocrat'c press would, appeal to the people of North' Caroling to act prudently, dis creetly and calmly, during the present political campaign. We are in the iriidst of" an exciting contest. Uur enemies are anxious for some pretext to charge lis with violence and lutiinidatidn., They would like to spread before the country exaggerr ated and sensational accounts of fresh Ku Klux. outrages and murders. This is their stock in trade, and without uch factitious capital they will be de prived of every weapon of defence. We'denouqce the Radical Ku Klux outrage at Tarboro as a wicked and desperate attempt to take the life of a political . opponent from motives ol hatred find malic3. We denounce it cs an bfj-i-hcot of that spirit of lawlessness which is bora of Radicalism, and flourishes most ex tensively in tha hot beds of Radical soil. We denounce this attempt at assassination as a cold-blooded, fiend ish pdrpdse; instigated by the Jpwest instioeUoF human nature, to stifla the freedom of the press." ,y ".".''
