The contempt consisted in marching near the court hou;e w hile noart was in session, with drums beat ing and flag flying. It does not appear that lie did more than reprimand the company. Tbe Watchman takes the Judge severely to task for the insulting words used by him to two jurors on account of their verdict. County Convention. The county convention of the Dem ocratic Conservative party of New Hanover was held yesterday in the court house in this city. The con vention was called to meet at 3 o'clock. When that hour arrived, the delegates having assembled in the court room, Col, W. L. Saunders, chairman of the County Executive Committee, called the convention to order and then culled the rolj of delegates who had bet' ii accredited from the preliminary meetings in the several ward of the city aud the townships of the county. Nearly all the delegates were pres ent. M Mr. O. G. Parsley, Jr., moved fhat Major J. A. Engelhard be elected President of tbe convention. The motion was unanimously adopted. Oa taking the chair Major Engel hard thanked the members of the Convention for the compliment paid bira in calling upon him to preside over the deliberations of the body which was to inaugurate the greatest political campaign which the people of North Carolina had ever been called upon to engage in, replete as their history was with political contests in which their dearest rights were at stake. He directed attention to the fact that already throughout the Union, in all the States, the two great parties were engaged in forming their lines of battle for the coming fight. The surie.ee of the political waters were already agitated by the prepara tions for the coming fight. Ia most of tbe States it was only a contest for the Presidency a struggle between favorite candidates a contest for spoils. How paltry were all these questions to those which the people of North Carolina would be called upon to de cide. How much more important it was for us to succeed than it was that any particular candidal si.ould be nominated; than any particular scheme Of linnnco nhbuld by advocated. Nor individuals, nor section, nor localities, uor party policy, uor party us ig, nor any nor all of tb-se, nor anything else, Bave an adhesion to prtuc'p'e plmu'd stand between the Democrats of North Carolina and success. We had too much at stake to risk all upon personal fworites. We had t jo much at stake to adhere to party policy and party usage merely. But we cannot and we would not abandon" principle for vic tory itself would then be robbed of its benefit; the fruit would indeed turn to ashes on the lip. The speaker then referred to local Blatters, calling attention. to the mis government which had so long cursed tmr couuty, and from which the pres ent canve88 may and should free us. He depicted ho, for years, taxes had been wrung from honest industry and business enterprise to fill the pockets of unworthy white men in olhce, and support negro mendicants out of office squandered to pay ignorant blackamoors for work they did not and could not do, and stolen to run the party machinery. We had seen a white prisoner taken from his cell by the order of a sable Dogberry, but at least one who sits in judgment upon our property, upon our rights, Upon our liberties, and dragged through the streets of this goodly city, followed by a howling mob, and made to touch the naked body of his sup posed victim under the supposition that the accusing blood would flow from the gaping wound; a custom. Which a distinguished Radical leader in this county, and one who was more responsible for this legal and moral cancer upon the body politic thau the ignorant negroes who elected him, had denounced in this very hall as only existing in its native wilds amidst the jungles of Africa, and which would disgrace the present civilization upon tbe banks of the Niger and the Ganges. The epeaker proceeded to picture other scones familiar to the people t f Wilmington and New Hanover, w hich bad debauched the courts of justice. nd brought into ridicule and disgrace trial by jnry, the great palladium of liberty. He- appealed to our people Wpecially who had so much at stake toente? into the canvass determined win.

But by some un known and uualterable law of her na ture she was doomed for a season each J ear to assume the shape of a loath some reptile, despised and shunned. But when the tinio had passed and her probatory punishment was over, she assumed again her regal robes and wonted power, taking care to shower her richest rewards upon those who had been kind to her iu her days of humiliation and disgrace. So, too, added the- speaker, would North Carolina, when she had recov ered from the prostrate condition iuto which bad and ignorant men have forced her, bertow her choicest blet?s intra upon ttiose oi her sons who were truest to her and had suflered most for her in her days of advetsity. At the conclusion of Maj. Engel hard's spetch. he asked that the organization of the convention be completed. air. S. H. Fishblate moved that Messrs. Walter Couey and J. I. Macks bo appointed secretaries. Motion adopted. Mr. Parsley moved that Col. W. L. Sounders, as chairman of the county Jiixecutive Committee, Le invited to participate in the deliberations of the convention. Carried. Col. Saunders then offered the fol lowing resolutions for the considera tion of ihe convention: Hesolved, That the Chairman of this meeting be authorized to appoint fifty delegates to respresent this county in the District Convention to be held in Fayetteville, on May 31st, and twenty five delegates to represent the county in the btuto Convention to be held in Raleigh, on June 13th.

Resolved further. That the Connty Executive Committee shalt consist of the City Executive Committee and one member for each of the other town ships in the count v. Resolved further. That the County Executive Committee are hereby em powered, to take such action in regard to nominations for all couuty officers to be filled at the next election as it shall deem best. Mr. Parsley moved that the resolu tions be considered seriatim. Carried, j The resolutions were then read and adopted seriatim. Mr. Vick mo red that the steamboat companies be requested to pass dele gates to the District Convention for half fare. Mr. Kerchner said he would state for the information of the steamboat gentleman who had just made the suggestion a3 to the steam boats, that they had already agreed to pass delegates for two dollars each way. iuc'admg meals. Mr. Vick said if that was the case, he would move that the steamboats be requested to take the delegates for nothing; he wanted to beat down their figures for fare. ft-r som little pica an try betweeu these gentleman over this, Mr. Parislfy moved an adjournment, wiiich was carried. The list of delegates from New Han over to the District eouveution at Fayetteville will be published in our issue of Tuesday morning. I lie -'HI ue and Hie Jra.j." By some means the report has gone out that the.federalsoldieis stationed at this place took part, as a body, iu the memorial ceremo jies of the 10th. This is not so. Perhaps there were individuals among them who attended and showed a respectful sympathy to the observances, but as an orgauized body they took no part. We rather dislike to make thi.s statement, be cause it spoils such a nice little senti mental story. Already are a number of our State papers making original remarks about the blending of the "Blue and the dray" on this occasion, while the "bloody chasm" is bridged over witli words of sucli tender and forgiviog love as to briug tears into the eye of a potato. Tne "Blues" strewing the graves of Confederates with floral tributes would have been a very touching aud beautiful scent if it had happened, but you see it didn't.

Chapel If ill, May 1G. Messrs. Kditous: There was a serious accident here a night ago, by which a colored woman and child were burned,. The child died soon after wards. The woman is still living, but she iu expected to die every moment. It seems that the mother was in the kitchen of the University Hotel and the child in au out house near by. when tbe mother hearing the cries of the child, rushed to the house. The child ran to the arms of its mother and set her on fire. Roth were soon in a blaze, running all around the yard. No one could catch them. The alarm of "fire" was soon given, and but for the timely appearance of some students, both would have burned up imme diately. The woman continued to run aronnd the yard until she fell to the ground with not a single particle of clothing on her. From head to feet, the child was a crisp mass of burnt flesh. E.

That public policy and sense of common justice require that silver issued by the government shonld be a legal tender in payment of all debts, public or private, and that we demand the unconditional repeal of tbe so-called silver act, so far as the same limits the amount for which said silver coinage shall be a legal tender. Eighth. That we are in favor of a tariff for revenue oi ly,and we denounce the republican scheme of resumption as intended (and operating through a large increase of bowrled debt, a sud deu enormous contract! m of the cur rency) to double the burdens of taxa tion, rob debtors of their property, paralyze productive aud commercial industries, cast laborers out of em ployment and fill the land with want and misery for the wicked purpose of doubling the values of money securi ties aud subjugating the mass of t'.e people to the imperious sway of a money oligarchy. Ninth. That t le democracy of Ohio present to the democracy of the other sovereign States of the republic the name of William Allen as the choice of Ohio for the Presideney. Tenth. That the delegates at large to the St. Louis convention, and that the delegates appointed by the Con gressional districts are hereby request ed iu the national convention to favor William Allen for Presideut, and to use all honorable means to secure his success. The convention then balloted for nominations for State officers with the following result: Secretary of Stite, Wm. Bell, of Licking county, by ac clamation; Judge of the Supreme Court, Wm. L. riuck. of Perry coun ty; Member of the Board of Public Works, H. P. Clough, of Butler com ty. Electors at Large, Judge Wm. Lane, Granville Stokes ; Delegates to St. Louis, Geo. H. Pendleton, Wm. L. O'Brien, Gen. Geo. W. Morgan and Thomas Ewiug. The following are the financial reso lutions of the majority report of the committee on resolutions, whicli were rejected: Resolved, That we favor a return to specie payments when the sume oau be done without seriously disturbing the business of the country, and to th-d end aud iu order that the debtor cltss mav not be further embarrassed, we demaud the repesl of the resumption act of 187o, and oppose any measure of legislation which shall arbitrarily fix a day for such resumption. Resolved, That the charters of the national banks ought not to be renew ed, and each of the said banks should be wound up at the expiration of the term for which it was chartered, and in lien of its circulating notes, treasury notes of the United States convertible into coin ou demaud aud receivable f ir all debts or t x due to the United States, should be issued to the extent. required by the neces iities of the gov ernment. Resolved, That we favor a tariff for revenue only. 'I' lie Contempt Cuke. Iu tho matter of contempt agaim-t T. M. Argo and J. E. O'Hara, practic ing lawyers, for an affray in the court room, the respondents appeared be fore Judge Henry on Thursday after noon and were heard through counsel. The counsel handed his Honor a pa per signed by the members of the bar attending Halifax court (with one or two exceptions) giving their views upon the question of contempt. This was in response to a request for their opinion.proviously made by his Honor, and merely reduced to writing, the substance of the views expressed by them orally on Thursday. It was their unanimous conclusion that the respondents were guilty of a contempt and should be punished therefor. But it was also suggested that the action upon the part of both the respondents was unpremeditated, and not intended to show any want of respect for the court. It was urged upon his Honor not to inflict, for the impulsive word and act of a moment, any punishment which would rankle hereafter. The Judge imposed fine of $200 ; on each, which seemed to meet with general ppxqtL "Roanoke News, From tbe Philadelphia North American, A Prime Southern C&in. . The great agricultural advantages the Southern States weakened and oc casionally wasted by continuous crop ping witnout returns to the soil, until Eastern Virginia was almost depopu lated and central Virginia lost through emigration and diminishing crops, and North Carolina suffered heavily these early advantages are being restored by frequent and important discoveries of fertilizers near, where they are wanted that answer every requirement. The Carolinas have quite recently discov ered great beds of phosphates, and feel confident tnat the material meets every demand aud will plaoe old plan tations in higher tilth than ever. East ern Xennessee has discovered inex haustible vegetable deposits that can be wrought at a low cost, aud Ken- tacky has just opened a bed of marl. rich in phosphorus, potash and soda thataupplies the very constituents re quired for tobacco. These discoveries occur at the in stant they are needed. Their first value is that they retain in each State much of the money formerly paid abroad for guano that, deteriorating m quality as it increased in price, left the planter insufficient profit when giving good crops, and more frequent ly, adulterated or worthless, failed to ivpay its own cost. Another value is that they give a variety to the employ- . S i. tit. . men is oi tue .several otstes mat is iu perfect harmony with and the greatest possible profit to the principal. They invite larger population, that by its consumption must stimulate other prod iction, and the product of each of these is necessarily a contribution to transportation. But the greatest advantages in many following these discoveries and their use is that they restore aud recreate and permanently improve the quality of the lands on which they are used'. Guano is temporary in its benefits. It shows wonderfully iu a few crops and disappears. The artificial composts cannot le used in sufficient quantity to effect permanent results. The end needed iu the worn-out lands of Vir ginia, that have been taken in hand by some English and some northern farm ers the end needed ia all the light soils of the Carolinas, and wherever the soil is naturally light and has been over, cropped and abandoned, or rend ered unremunerative is material reconstruction. This is achieved by this means iu precisely the way that the sandy noil of Jersey and Delaware has been rendered strong as wed as quick, and as enduring as rich, bv the beds of marl that have been mingled with it. The marl erf Kentucky will do .or her lands, fast following the example of Virginia, on which tobacco was exclusively and continuously grown, precisely what it lias done and is doing for the lands of Jersey making them bett -r than they ever were. The phosphates of the Carolinas and the vegetable deposits of Tennessee, less enduring, perhaps, than the marl, are more enduring than any other fertilizer, and being contig uous can be gained bv all and the poorest lands may be made rich and and the richest retained iu their best condition under the most vigorous cropping. The great end of Southern industry is agriculture, and that has furnished, furnishes and will continne to give the greatest wealth. These discover--es enable it to be prosecuted more vigorously and profitably, and invite new population to enter more largely upon the cultivatiou of cotton, tobacco, hemp and all the staples of the region. Thexlecliue there was in production for some years caused the cultivation to be attempted in other land. Tho south has to recover and hold its su premacy. Whatever success is possi ble in manufactures, and great has been won, depends finally upon the crops that f uruish the staple of manu facture ; and the discoveries that are made are as valuable for their aid to manufactures as to agriculture. They are seasonable, they are sufficient ; and if they are as promptly im proved as they promise to be tbe res toration that is being effected in the oldest States will take a great stride and establish all that the Southern States need for enduring prosperity. Fur tbe Journal. Daniel Shaw, of Pender, for State Treasurer. Messrs. Editors: Many prominent members of the Democratic party have been mentioned for tbe important nomination of State Treasurer on the Democratic ticket. It is well that we ht vc, in differ nt section of the State, so many worthy Democrats who are fully able and competent to fill this highly responsible and arduous posi tion. But among all the names men tioned none are more worthy, none more able, none more fit in all respects than Daniel Shaw, Esq., of Pender oonuty. His hearty devotion to that great work of retrenchment and re form which constitutes the main issue in our State campaign this year his -ell-known genius and skill in tbe management of public fiuances and his superior administrative abilities and rare judgmmjt, as well as his firm. Roman, integrity all combine with patriotic devotion to the oett interests of the State, in pointing to him as a good Treasurer if he should be ruu and elected. As commissioner of Pen der county he has done hard service and good work for that new couuty, and brought the. county np to au envi able position, financially and otherwise, amoug her sister counties of North Carolina. In the higher position of State Treasurer, he would hive a field worthy of hi financial skill, admira ble executive qualifications and incor ruptible honesty and integrity, and would do the party and the State great and lasting good. A graduate of Chapel Hill, he has been progressive in his education and develop jaeat, end is now oue of the best posted and best informed gentle men of the State, as be certaiuly is one of the best educated tnd most suc cessful farmers iu Eastern North Caro lina. Modest and retiring he has nev er sought offic , but i without doubt one of the men who should be brought prominently forward iu the selections for office at Raleigh by our State Con vention on the 14th of June. Tbe writer doe not know that he would accept, tie would even oppose tbe notoriety thin article will give him were be informed it would be written, so modest is the man. The couuty of Pender, in her recent county conven tion, h is taken the right position as to candidates for office. She goes in for party success and State redemption, no matter where out candidates reside, in the east or the west, north - Or south, and her position should receive due appreciation in the State.

Loss SoU, QW. NO. 21 For the Journal. ASIIEV1L.LE. Carolina Central Rai I road West ern North Carolina Hal I road.. Mr. Eiitob: Entertaining a desire to see something of the mountain country of our own State, and also of the much talked-of Western North Carolina railroad, its location, pro gress and prospects for early over coming the "formidable bar" to its entrance into the haven of its ultimate destination. "The- Mississippi valley. I recently made a flying visit to Ashe- ville, and only regret that 1 underesti mated the time necessary to fully gratify my desire. The road from Wilmington to Char lotte passes over a country from level to somewhat rolling, the soil varying irom sasd, light aud heavy clay, mnck, loam and rocky, all sufficiently undulating and fertile for health and agricultural purposes in perfection, and , with great water powers, rich forests oi iree kuu unuergrowiu as variauie in character as the soils upon which they grow. From the many evidences of thrift upon tbe line of this road in the spring ing up like mushroons of new tcwus and villages everywhere, the growth and improvement of old ones, the general improvement of farm build ings, fences, ditching, clearing up and tillage, I shonld think the country abundantly able to sustain the road from its local traffic alone, besides being competent to sustain a largu in flux of immigrants to utilize the idle forests and mineral districts. Much credit is due the accomplished superintendent for his industry and perseverance in placing his toad in such good condition and keeping it so under the most obstinate difficulties and trying circumstances, at the same time securing countless friends through a generous and courteous in teroourse with the people. Jfrom Charlotte to Statesville, thence on the line of the Western North Car olna railroad across the Catawba river and up to Morgwnton which may be said to be at the foot of the mountains. is as fine a belt of country for agricul tural and manufacturing purposes as can be found any where, as b9autiful and attractive to tourists and tempo rary visitors, as pleasant, agreeable and profitable to permanent settlers as can be found any where else on top of this earth, X reckon. From Morganton to Henry Station, (the present , head of the road and six miles above Old Fort almost to the month of tbe great tunnel), we are in the wilds of the "Switzerland of Amer ica," which for the grandeur of its towering mountains, the magnificent mountain views, its rich and ever varying romantic scenery, its beautiful valleys and still more beautiful moun tain streams of elear, limpid water dancing merrily'over pebbly bottoms, presenting here and there charming cascades, laughing and glittering in the morning Bubeams, has no snpei ior.if it be equalled anywhere. Its true picture like that of Niagara has never been written and never will be; it must be seen to be appreciated. One single view in this belt which I will not un dertake to describe, will amply com pensate the tourist for the expense of a visit. The great peculiarity of the road is, that while it passes through this wild mountain region it is by no means an "air-line" in the common acceptation of that term. Adopting first one and then another of the mountain streams, and with them winding around moun tains and across valley s until it ascends to the very base of tbe mountain-ridge which is being tunneled, thus avoiding all those disagreeable and dangerous cliffs, high embankments and tressel- inpr, so common to "air-lines through a region like this, and which is eo great a terror to the timid traveller. Between Henry Station and Swan nanoa Gap (whioh is the crest of the mountain) a distance of three miles by the stage road is the "formidable bar" above alluded to. The elevation to be overcome is about one thousand feet, to accomplish which it becomes necessary to increase the , distance to eight miles instead of three by wind-; ing around and tunneling through ! several mountains. As far as I could see and learn the work of tunneling by the contractors, Col., Wilson and others, under the supervision of Col. Allen, is being prosecuted with muoh energy. The convict labor, -under the skillful man agement of Major Miller, is doing valuable service for the State, but it is much to be regrettad that there are so few convicts at work here. Double the present number could be advan tageously employed with decided benefit to the material interest of the State, and I should think the interest of tbe State would be greatly enhanced by some immediate steps being taken by the proper authorities to enlarge the force for removing this formidable obstruction at the earliest possible moment, so as to utilize the entire road and make it profitable at once as moat of tbe grading beyond this point is already complete, and bnt a very short time would then be required to open communication with tbe Missis sippi valley and the great cities thereof. As far as my observation goes, the State may claim the road as one of real merit, aud if proper connections are made to direct its traffic to her o-vn seaport the local business alone, I s lould think, would be sufficient to sustain it harmoniously with ordina ry y judicious management. From Henry Station a safe and by no means unpleawant ride of twenty miles in fine coaches and teams Drings you to Ashoville, the "Queen City of Our Switzerland." In approaching it we took a near road over Beau-catcher Mountain, which overlooks the town, from the top of which we had a Bplen did view of the town and its surround ings, sitting there, as it were, in quiet dignity, on an apparently hollow square plateau of irregularities, tne charming Swannanoa dancing merrily along her southern border, and the world renowned French Broad her western,, surrounded on every side by giant mountains, towering. far above the surrounding country and looking like so many sentinels protecting their cherished sovereign from the offensive intrusion or vulgar gaze of the oui;r world. . How would it do, Mr. FJditor, to claim and adopt this little orphan into our Cape Fear family? It strikes me as. .appropriate . and proper that "we should at once, sett to work and culti vate a social and commercial relation ship. In these days of railroads and modern progress" we" may "lose the prize by delay, tho little thing can't stay out in tbe cold much longer and may accept the first offer of protection tendered. I. therefore propose that our people lose no time in calling up on and cultivating the acquaintance of Asheville, and that we . adopt her into our I family circle . as 5 Wilmington's Utl Sister of the Mountain." Our railroad eommiiies. I am sure, will cheerfully co-operate ia securing this fraternal allegiance by. offering a tariff of rates to excursionists qneap, pleas ant and quick. - - - .

'ihe Mustang KMe a Failure. New York, May 18. The mnsU race at Fleetwood park coramerxwl at 4 o'clock this morning. The conditions were tnat dOu miles were to be accom plished in fifteen hours, with relays of horses, the rider to use one horse as long as he liked. The stake was $25,000 that it could not be done to $15,000 that it could. The first fifty miles were made in 2 hours and 13 minutes, and the first hundred in 4 hours and 41 minutes. At 2:30 p. m. two hundred and ten miles had been made, but on the two hundred and twenty-sixth mile the rider gave out, and the race was over and a failure. Frank Perralto, the Mexican who had been er gaged to ride in the race, and who was too nervous and weak to attempt it, gave way for "Budd" Parker, who mounted in a rough jockey dress. Parker dismounted the first horse at the end of a mile, and quickly mounted a fresh one which stood ready, and continued through out the day to mount, ride and change, seldom compelling one horse to make more than one round at a time. When Farker gave out ho was 16 minutes behind the average time necessary to accomplish the proposed feat. ttcwolulioua oi tlte State Cummltlse Ia the lat; meelinr at Raleinh of the State Executive Committee of the Conser vative party, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: Resolved, I hat this committee iu issuing tho call for the State Convention cordially invite the hearty co-operation of all, with out recard to former distinction or per sonal estrangement, who areopposed to the ecuiess extravagance, planus corruption anil dangerous usurpation of the Radical party. Iiesolced, That the chairman of the riili'ereul county organizations he reqnestod to put themselves at once in correspond- ' enee with the Central Executive Commit tee, and where there are no county organi-. cation, prominent members of tlie party will notify the committee of the fact, and recommend suitable persons to constitute such committee. Resolved, That the basis of representa tion in the State Convention, subject to its ' ratification, shall be the Merrimon and ' Caldwell vote, and and that one delegate be allowed for each 100 Democratic votes aud an additional one for each fraction over 50 votes. r - Resolved, That the nomination for offices , should be made at a regular convention, . called for that purpose, to meet at some ' central point, of which due and timely notice shall be given. Resolved, That the accusation against W. R. Cox, chairman of this committee, of conspiring to deprive R. M. Norment, of -Robeson county, of his rights as a citizen . at the election for delegates to the consti tutional convention, is, in our opinion, utterly groundless, and that the institution -of proceedings for his arrest so long after the alleged offence, and on the eve of the meeting of this committee, is a wretched attempt at intimidation, and hut an illus- tration of the vile prostitution of law aud - legal -process to the purpose of manufac turing political capital, so generally prac- ' ticed throughout the South by the Republi can party. Resolved, That we doubt not that all good people of whatever party affiliation, will see the base purpose of this unfounded - prosecution, and that its investigators, - whoever they may prove to he, will receive . their reward of condemnation and con- ' tempt. - i liesolved, I hat the good of the State and ., interests of the party, which are identical, . demands that the personal warfare between the Sentinel and Daily News of this city -' shall cease and their efforts be united for -the overthrow of Radicalism in this State; and that copies of the resolution be trans- "" mitted by the Secretary to the editors of - ! those papers. A The Official Call of tbe National Demo- cratic Convention. The National Democratic Committee, to whom is delegated the power of fixing the . time and place of holding the National Democratic Convention of 1870, have ap. pointed Tuesday, the twenty-seventh day- of June next, noon, as the time, 3 nd selected St. Louis as the place of holding such Con vention. - - Each State will be entitled to a represent : tation equal to double the number of its Senators and Representatives in the Con- '" gress of the United States; and the Terri ' tory of Colorado, whose admission in July i as a btate win give it a vote in the next Electoral College, is also invited to send ' delegates to the Convention. Democratic, conservative and other citi zens of the United States, irrespective of, past political associations, desi ing to co- operate with the Democratic party in its'-' present efforts and objects, are cordially in- . vited to join in sending delegates to tne National Convention. Co-operation is de-" sired from all persons who would change an administration that has suffered the public credit to become and remain inferior to other and less favored nations; has permitted- commerce to be taken away by ; foreigu powers; has stilled trade by unjust,;, unequal and pernicious legislation; has im- , posed unusual taxation and rendered it most burdensome; has caangea growing prosperity to widespread suffering an .: want; has squandered the public money recklessly and defiantly, and shamelessly used the power that should nave oeenswuC ' to punish crime, to protect it. .
