The thirteenth article of the Consti
tution authorizes two modes of chang
ing itH provisions. The proposed
amendments affect both these methods
very materially and very greatly for
the better.
1. Under the Constitution, as it now
stands, the legislature (two-tnnds vl
all its members concurring) can call a
Convention without any restrictions
i,atpvnr and such a Convention
will be absolutely sovereign an.l
with full authority to
do all things that to it may
flPPtn best. The amendments require
not onlj that the call of tho Couven
ahftll have the concurrence of
liiUU -J
thirds of the members of the
T.ffiolfttnrA hnt that, in addition, it
ahtiH alsn receive the concurrence of a
majority of the people at the poll
80 that if the amendments shall be
ratified, before any Constitutional Con
vention can meet, the call for it -trill
have first to be sanctioned by two-
thirds of all the members of the two
Houses of tho General Assembly aud
afterward be sanctioned by the vote of
the majority of the people.
It is manifest tnat under such a law,
no Convention will ever be held in
Koith Carolirja; and this being so, all
men who have honest fearj" about trust
ing conventions with power, ought to
see plainly that it is time for them to
ppeak out in favor of the ratification
of the amendments. Iudeed the very
reasons that induced good citizens.and
there were many of them who did so,
to oppose the call of tho Constitutional
Convention last year naturally compel
them to favor now the ratification of
the amendments; in a word the amend
merits meet squarely the demand of
the anti-Convention men of last year,
by making it a part of the Constitution
that no convention shall under any
circumstances be called without fm.t
obtaining the consent of the people at
the ballot box upon the direct question
of convention or no convention. Ac
cordingly, we find that Judge Fowlc,
who wa3 one of the bitterest opposers
of the convention movement, is most
warmly advocating the ratification of
the amendments proposed by that
2. The other mode of altering the
Constitution, that by Legislative en
actment, is also very materially
changed and very greatly for tho bet
ter, inasmuch as it is made very much
simpler and places the entire control
in the hands of the people just where
it ought to be.
To make any change by Legislative
enactment in the Constitution as it now
stands, one Legislature must, by the
vote of three-fifths of all the members,
pass a bill containing the proposed
amendment. It must then be pub
lished to the people six months before
the election of numbers for the next
Legislature. The new Legislature
must then pass the bill by a two-thirds
vote of all the members, and after all
this, the bill must then be submitted
to the people for ratification. rii. ia
a long, tedious process,, aud was made
so designedly. If, however, the
amendments shall be ratified the diffi
culty will no longer exist.
The following is the amendment
proposed to this part of the Constitu
tion: Sec. 2. No part of the Constitution
of this State shall be altered unless a
bill to alter the same shall have been
agreed to by three fifths of each house
of the General Assembly. Aud the
amendment or amendments so agreed
to shall be submitted at the next
general election to the qualified voters
of the whole State in such manner as
may be prescribed by law. And in the
event of their adoption by a majority
of the votes cast, such amendment or
amendments shall become a part of
.the Constitution of this State.
Every man can see for himself the
plain effect of the changes of this ar
ticle of the Constitution proposed to
be made by the amendments now pend
ing. It can be summed up in a single
word almost, that is to say, they re
store full power to the people. With
the consent of the people everything
can be done, and without their consent
nothing can be done. The ratification
of the amendments will be substan
tially a new declaration of independ
ence on the part of the people of
North Carolina, no less important and
no less sweeping than that made in
Mecklenburg in 1775 and that made in
Philadelphia in 1776.
. If the Convention had done nothing
but propose the amendments to this
article, the great work of liberating
the people from the slavery of the
Caiiby Constitution would have been
accomplished, for if these amend
ments shall be ratified, the people can
in less than three months redress any
grievance growing out of the Constitu.
tion, can cure all constitutional ills
t! at may effect them. But nothing,
not a word, nor a letter.can be changed
without their consent and co-operation.
Is there any danger in this ? Is there
any danger in confiding to the people
01" North Carolina the power to make
and nnmake their own government?

The Boston Post says :
The inry in the Babcock case at
Washington excites the derisive com
meut 01 tne country ior its compoai
tion. It is altogether too plain that
it was organized to acquit. Three, at
least, of the jurors have been inti
mately connected with the District
Ring and have been in Babcock's em
ploy and under personal obligations
to him. Another was caterer to the
c'.ub-house in which the conspiracy
was connected, and where the con
spirators came together again after the
burglary was effected. A fifth has
been employrd by Babcock about the
public grounds of the city, which are in
his direct personal charge. A sixth
was formerly a Treasury clerk, and is
now suffering from a discharge from
office. Shepherd, commonly called
" Boss," is, so soon, offering bets that
the jury will acquit him without leav
ing the box. It was into courts of
this character and before juries thus
instituted, all under the very windows
of the administration, that a Republi
can Congress did its best to drag the
proprietors of distant newspapers that
kept correspondents at Washington.
What language is equal to a fit char
acterizMtion of such a farce in the
name of justice ? Yet it is but a single
illustration of the way in which this
party in power would punish crime
and carry out reform.
Do you believe that the Convention
was right in saying that white people
and negroes ought -to remain separate
and distinct races ? If so. vote for the
amendments. Do you think negro
children and white children onght to
sit side by side in the school house,
and do you think negroes and whites
ought to intermarry ? If you do think
so, then by all means vote against the
amendments, for if they shall be rati
fied negroes and white people will not
associate upon terms of equality ex
cept in the Radical party. Vote for
the amendments !

Committee on General State of the
Raising- and Speaking:
Town Creek Townttalp,
Last Saturday was a big day for the
Democrats of Town Creek Township.
They assembled at rnee s store ac
cording to previous announcement
and raised a magnificent pole and a
beautiful fl ig nine by thirty feet- long,
on which was inscribed Ttlden,
Vance and Reform. There were over
two hindred present, and the crowd
was aroused fully up to the pitch of
enthusiasm which has now become
creneral over the whole State. The
pole stands one hundred and twenty
two feet above ground : it is as
straight as an arrow and its symmet
rical properties are beautiful. The
appliance for raising so long and heavy
a pole were limited in the country and
great praise is due to those who were
active in its erection, especially, we
learn, to E. R. Taylor, Durandt
and Evans. When the flag was seen
to float gracefully from its elevated
masthead three cheers were sent np
forTilden, Vance, the State Ticket,
Waddell and Reform.
The audience was then addressed
by Mess. Eugene S. Martin and J. L
Macks of this city, who were present
in obedience to a previous invitation
to address the crowd on the occasion.
We learn that the speeches of both
of those gentlemen were well received.
Mr. Martin spoke first, and for the
space of an hour and a half held firmly
the attention of his audience. His
speech was devoted to the exhibition
of t,h fnek t.hnt. the tendency of the
Radical party was to centralize the
power of the people in the government
at Washington, and in arguing this
question, compared the recent order of
the Secretary of War with the decis
ion of the Supreme Court of the Uni
ted States, showing now utterly re
gardless the Radical party is of all law
and all judicial interpretations of the
law. After disposing of this Mr. Mar
tin spoke on the other issues of the
campaign and, as usual, acquitted
himself most handsomely in their discussion.
Mr. J. L Macks followed Mr. BfarUn
in a speech of a little over an hour,
the greater poriton of the day having
been already consumed in the work of
erecting the pole, which was a
difficult job with the limited appli
ances as stated. This speaker devoted
bis time to tne discussion 01 tne con
stitutional amendments principally,
but also gave some good counsel to
the colored people, quite a number of
whom were present. We learn that
his remarks and views on the political
ouestions which directly affect the
colored men attracted the favorable
consideration of the negroes who were
present, and gave them food for reflec
tion wben they returned to their
homes. Altogether, we learn that this
meeting was a fine success.
1 ransom in Clinton Cl&eerlnjr
ws From Sampson.
Mr. Editor: The announcement
that Gen. M. VT. Ransom would reach
OlintoB last Thursday evening created
quite a flatter in our midst, and the
people turned out en masse to receive
him. An imposing cavalcade of fifty
or sixty enthusiastic members of the
Clinton Tilden and Vance club, ac
companied by the Clinton Cornet
Band, went out in time to meet the
General a mile or two from town and
escorWd him to the hotel. Marching
into town, the band discoursing some
of its liveliest and most soul-stirring
music, the General's pogreaa was re
peatedly interrupted by groups of
fair ladies mothers and daughter
who gathered in the streets to do him
honor. It Was a triumphal entry.
Arrived at the hotel, a few words of
welcome from Edwin W. Kerr, Eq ,
and of flattering thanks from the Gen -eral,
who seemed confuted in the
midst of so many evidences of affec
tion for himself, were folk) wed by in
troductions and hand-shakings and
joyous meetings ui many wao with
him "yielded to overwhelming num
bers and resources at Appomattox
A continuous rain from early Friday
morning till tn middl or tne day
prevented tne arrangements of the
managers from being carried out and
compelled the most of the country
people to remain at home. The grand
stand was therefore abandoned, and
the announcement that the General
would speak in Faison Hall eoon filled
that spacious room to overflowing and
nail the crowd were still in the street
under their umbrellas. Deafening
applause and "Down in front Greeted
tne arrival of Ransom. He 7as lstro
duced by Mr. Keer, and before he had
spoken two minutes the impatience of
tne outsiders became unmanageable,
and tney drowned the words of the
speaker with "Ransom!" "Ransom!"
"The rain's oer!" "Come oat here!
The cry became general, and, although
the rain was not quite over, all patties
repaired to tne grand stand. And
here six or seven huudred white men
and perhaps fifty negroes stood in a
drizzling rain and listened for nearly
enree nours to a speech which I have
not words to characterize. Often tbe
General intimated a purpose to close,
but the crowd objected, and told him
to '-Go on!" He dealt in plain facts;
ne Knew the people he was talking to,
and he knew they did not come to hear,
nor did he have time to give them
any of ttia flowers of oratory. The
issues before the country were too
grave, and tne interests at stake too
weighty for other than plain words.
His lauguage was temperate almost to
a point, and when dosing up one of
his terrible counts against Grantism
he called Morton and Edmunds and
Butler "bad men," his words were
more than echoed by great waves of
indignation swelling and surging in
the breasts of his audience. The in
effable diabolism and the fiendish
tyranny of Radicalism, as exposed by
him, brought many tears into eyes
unused to them.
The speech over, the band struck up
"The Old North State Forever !" and
the vast crowd gathered around the
General to shake his hand. It was a
glorious day for the Democrats, and
it was a withering day for Grantism.
Many of the intelligent negroes who
heard the speech have avowed a pur
pose, I understand, to stay away from
the election, and one prominent leader
among them said that if Ransom told
the truth, "the Yankees had treated
us mighty bad."

our hearts. Saturday Edwin W. Kerr

The candidates for Congress in this

of his speech Capt. Davis referred to
the late Gov. Graham as one of the
purest and best men the State had ever
prodnoed. Young, in his reply, re
marked that Capt. Davis had said that
if Gov. Graham were now alive he
would be urging theseoatsionistsonin
their course of destruction. Capt.
Davis arose and denied that he
had said suoh a thine. ' Young repeat

Young, and he drew his sleeves up
and his friends began to gather around
him. Captain Davis took his seat and
folded his arms quietly across his
breast; Young looked him right
straight in the face for a moment or
two, and then wsnt on with his speech.
and this was the end of what had
promised to be a lively time. This is
the story as aa eye-witness tells it.

Mr, uarreii nas turned tne oeie
brated bans jSouci plantation into a
stock farm, and has the present year

fed on it until the middle of June.
In Jnne the c vys were taken off. The
land was then turned ovnr, commenc
ing to plow on the twentieth of June,
and finishing about the middle of July.
On the first of September commenced
mowing and thus far the twenty-five
acres of land have produced 5,020
pounds of hay by actual weight, per
fectly dry and in fine order.

County Scrip and Taxe.
Mr. Editor As you sometimes dis
course learnedly of law as well as poli
tics, please let us know if the county
tax gatherer can repudiate the county
3crip. Say that I owe $100 for State
tax and $100 for county tax and pre"
sent a county order for $200. Of this
$50 is received in part payment of the
county tax, while none of it will be
allowed in settlement of State tax ;
that is to say but 25 per cent, of my
orders are received for taxes. Please
tell your readers whether the tax
gatherers can legally refuse to receive
any or all of suoh county orders, and
that in the event of my refusing to pay
the tax unless the orders 1 bold are
received ; if my property can legally
be sold away under execution for a
failure to pay the taxes.

Hon. Uoro Davie.
We hsve the plessmre to announce
that this distinguished and popular
statesman will address the people of
Wayne and surrounding country in
Goldsboro on Tuesday, October 3d, in
behalf- of reform and constitutional
liberty. Mr. Davis is one of North
Carolina's most gifted and eloquent
sons, and our readers will hear with
profound gratification mat us nas
made a number of appointments in
various parts of the State, where his
eloquent voiee and strong intellect will
do mueh in arousing our people to a
just sense of their duty. We bespeak
for him a rousing audience in Golds
boro on the 3d of October. Hon.
John D. Stanford, one of our Sena
tors, will address the people on the
same occasion.
Don't Know His Business.
There is a mail agent on the route
between this place and Wilmington
who seems not to know his business.
There is a poskoffiee in Rowan county
called Blackwells. The other day this
agent got a letter directed to the sec
retary of the Hayes and Wheeler club
at Blackwells. Not knowing such a
place in this State he marked the en
velope thus : " No such place in North
Carolina, Blackwell's Island, N. Y., is
the plaoe this is intended for." When
our readers understand that Black
well's Island is the place where con
victed criminals from New York are
sent the joke will be appreciated.
This fellow's head is level, for he
knows all of Hayes' supporters will be
there, or in a similar plaoe, after the
4th of March next if they have justice
done them. Raleigh News.
