An Address to the People of
North Carolin .
The North' Carolina .'AgflcultBral
and Industrial Convention jfbicK met
in Raleigh on the 1 1th of January last,
by a unanimous vote, directed their
Testden,t to, prepare and issue a ad,
dress to the People of th'S-tate'oa
the subject of coxoperatiao and such
other matters as may be of interest.
Tbe uodersigned in obedience to
that resolution, ventures ta offer some
suggestion to the public and particu
larly to farmers for their serious con
It should be taken as a good omen,
that upon a short notice, and that too
imperfectly circulated, more thau two
hundred delegates, representin twenty-four
counties and twenty different
societies and associations, should have
assembled together ai ' that season- of
the vear. in Convention : thvt two days
should have been devoted by tbem to
the earnest, harmonious and lutein-
gent consideration of subjects of vital
importance to the Agiicultund lnter-
cU of the State, and that by tactt
consent, eve: y thing of a politi'al char
acter should have been excluded from
the consideration of the assembly. It
U a step in the right direction,
You were informed th.ouh the
pablio press of the subjects which
were acted upon by the Convention
and it is thought not necessary that
they should ail hew be enumerated
You could not have failed a observe,
that they were all of deep inter st.
most of them of vital importance, and
all are beset with difficulties so great
aa to reuder the success of most of
tbem hopeless, unless thiough the
united intelligence and wiadoinof the
f it be possible, these difficulties
must be met and must be overcome;
or we can hardly expect a hih degree
of success in our ag.icultural and
other indastrial pursuits.
In the first place, 'for example, all
men are agreed thab mun have
more capital and labor,,, before the
State can bo raised from its present
condition. Rut cupital and Lbor can
not be created for the occasion. It
must come to us. And the most san
guiae of our leading men have expec
ted that it would pour in upon us ,'roni
abroad so many and so great, are tne
inducements held out by the excel'
leoce of our soil, climate and produc
tions, ioviting immigration. But
others less sanguine cannot build with
confidence upon these expectations
for timely aid and relief. Aod a
sound consideration of the subject w 11
probably lead generally to the follow
in conclusions. Our thousands of
ac rs of uncultivated lands will not
he occupied by an industrious populas
:oii of skilful farneis, nor will we
have a more abundaut supply of val
uable larborers until threo conditious
are iu SUed on our part.
Fivst. Our public debt must be
disposed of iu some way. This debt.
so-ci'lled, amounts to $35,000,000, and
is 'daily iici easing by accuin-r inter
est, and opcates as a substan ial mort
z,a, for is redemptirn. upon all the
property of the people which as asses
sed iii tixation amounts only to
S119,000,000. That is to say, the real
and pertouai property of the State, is
only about three times greater than
the debt for which it is bound.
Secondly. Tranqui'ity and good
order must be fully established through
out our borders; and the laws must be
obeyed as iu the days of old, and at
home and abioad, cvtrywhere all must
be assured th-tt this is so. The want of
this convict. on abroad is now opera
ting stroDjly aga-nst us.
Thirdly. A sound system of pub-,
lie instruction muft be established, on
such a footing that all inquiries will
be sai;sficd that it will be permanent
and efhcicub.
Lmil thee three conditicns are
first performed on our part, we may
be assured that adequate relief will
not come to us fro.n abroad, capital
ists wili not invest here and companies
of valuable immi'jrantyill not settle
heie. . Jt
But the trouble is 'upon us. It
s urgent, we caunot wait; what is to
be doue?
The answer is: We must make th
most, of our present means and re-
1. We must ue , whst labor we
have, to the greatest advantage, aod
make it wore valuable to us. This
must' be done by diminishing the size
of our faims, draw in the inclosures;
cultivate less land, and cultivate it
better; making a less number of acres
produce-better crops, and with more
cenaioty than the whole plantation
does now, and at the same time by
this means, a better system of agricul
ture will be introduced.
2. But it is obvious that our surest
reliance for labor under the pres
ent circumstances is upon our colored
The whole population of tne btate is
1,071.361 souls, of this number 1,241
are Indians, and 391,00 are of Airi
can. descent. And all things consid
ered, they are the best field laborers
in the world.
We are all here together. They
are dependent for their bread upon
their labor in the cultivation of the
laod. and they have no lauds of their
on to cultivate. While the whit
population numbering 780,470, own
the land, and to a great extent are un
able to cultivate it for themselves.
Here then, we have presented to us,
the elements of a most convenient,
valuable and neccessary arrangement
between the two races.
The true basis is furnished of a last
ing business partnership mutual in
terest. One party furnishes the land
which uf necessity must be cultivated,
and the other party iurnishes the la
bor which of necessity must be used
in its cultivation. InSueuced by
those considerations, aod also by the
high and houonbte duty which we
owe u the colored race among ns,
growing out of our former relations
with it, thi3 arrangement should be
adopted io good faith and carried out
on our part upon just, fair and libers
al principles. Aud we should cheer
fully aid them as th weaker party
iu their endeavors to
But labor and capital is not all
thai cr Agriculture require. The
present- ruinous mode of agriculture
must be changed, has been des
cribed as "the art by which good'.'
"land ia converted into. Old fields." It

All these associations should be
fo-rptd aod should be fostcied aud
si-Mijed, and oue spirit, one union,
oue object should animate them all, to
t'e advancement of the agriculture
condition of the State.
Individual effort can d but little;
the cause requires concert of aotiou;
organised, iu.elligeut co-opei ation.
Alter much reflection it is thought
that iu u address of this kind to the
woule people of the State, allusion may
w.tli propriety be made to our politi
cal condition.
Two great political parties have
arise-u out o! tin: new order uf tilings,
aud are contending for the superioi itj.
Oue ol these parlies evidtutly rei.-
resenU tho great mass of the sub-tau-tial,
iptelligent poition of the people:
that portion of them wniuh muin'v
hears the burduus oT the :ovei umeul.
ud tli's Ja iy it would stem, dues
not Sudimuily reg.trJ me s.'tuattou,
power and iufluence of another great
c'ass ol' the people the oioied pop
elai'tu aud eudeavors to obtain aud
coot.ol the goveeumeut without their
aid and in dcrauce of ll em.
The other p"riy, on the contrary,
seema ou'D'y to rtly upon the com
bined suppo.t of the colored popula-
oj, aud eodeavois to obiaiu the
cotitrol of the goverameut wit hout the
aid una ;n deSaoce of the mt lligeui,
tax-paying po.tiou of the people.
Oi thtae two parties, with the expe
rience of the past before us, and iu
the present condition of things, it
uay witu sa.ecy be amruieu, tnat
ueiihcr, while entertaining these
views, can wisely ard satisfactorily
administer the State government.
The public good, ibr which govern
ment was instituted, rises superior to
all party success and triumph.
It ia time, it is fail time, for the
"sober second thought of the people"
to ace aLd for their voice to be heard.
The North Carolina. State Agricul
tural Convention will meet in UJeigh
on the 1 1th of December next. In it
will be assembled a ul! representa
tion of the agricultural interests of the
State, and there let the liberal, .the
wise, the pa riotic leaders and promi
nent men of both political parties
meet with them ; aud there also let us
have a full reprcar niation of that class
of men whom tbe people formerly dc
I'ghted to honor and. to trust. Such
men as Calvin Graves, AH red Dock ...
ery, David S. lleid, Giles Mebane,
Wi'liam Eutoo, the two venerable ex
Judgci of the old Supreme Court,
and many others from all over the
St.te, of the tjame class ot eminent
citizens, who have not of late taken a
prominent part in public affairs. And
then let this subject be submitted to
a committee of such men as will com
mand tbe respect and confidensa of
the whole State, to whom their report
shall be made.
Pet pie of North Carolina! A new
Uture les before us. Shall it be a
tuture of Euccess, of prosperity, of
greatness, or a calamitous failuiel''
The great crisis is upon us. Let
us prove ourselves worthy iu energy!
wisdom and p'-owess, of the icuowoed
race of people from ' whom we boast
our descent.

Gentlemen: it is witu pleasure that I bear
testimony to the fact, that the "Hull's Self

gave eniire satisfaction.
The Cotton is distributed in the box by tho
Feeder so regularly and nnifo inlv, that iu
ginning more than one hundred balos or Cot

I have no hesitation in pronouncing it, with
the Feeder attached, supeWor to any Gin I
ever nsed or eve saw utcd. Very respect
