Republican State Convention.
By direction of the Republican State
Committee it is hcrely announced that a
Convention of the RepiiUicaii party of
North Carolina will be held in the City of
Raleigh. n Wednesday the 20th day of
Felirunry, 18(58. to nominate candidates for
State offices, and tj perform such oilier du
ties as may I deemed advisable.
The vote in the Convention will be double
the vote that each County has in the Con
stitutional Convention. Any cumber of
delegates can attend, and the vote will be
cast by a majority of those present.
The Republicans of the State are earnestly
requested to take immediate steps to appoint
delegates to the Convention. Let every part
of the State be represented. It is expected
that State officers, members of Congress,
members of the State Legislature, and
County officers will tie elected on the day
on which the Constitution is submitted for
ratification. Let the Republicans of the
State rouse themselves to the great work be
fore them. Let them unite as one man to
secure the ratiBcation of the Constitution
and the election of loyal men to all the of
fices, and thus render certain the restoration
of the State to the federal Union.
W. W. HOLDEN".
Chairman Rep. State Committee.
John T. Deweese, Secretary.
The little squad of so-called Conser
vatives in the Constitutional Conven
tion lose no opportunity to waste time
and embarrass the body in its action.
Mr. Durham lost Thursday in attending
the Rebel Convention, and on that day
in his absence, the Convention had well
nigh perfected an important part of the
Constitution ; but he took his seat
again on Friday, and went to work
offering amendments for the purpose of
wasting time and making party capital.
He thought his propositions were
smart, but they were only ridiculous.
We think it about time that dele
gates who pronounce the Convention a
usurpation on the rights of the people,
and who hold their seats only for the
purpose of obstructing business and
making party capital, were taught a
lesson. Such delegates can not com
lain if their propositions are ignored
by being promptly laid on the table, or
cut short off by the previous question.
The Convention has been assembled to
do a great work. Its members are in
earnest ; and they will not much longer
allow themselves to be annoyed and
trifled with, and public business delay
ed, by the factions conduct of those
who avow that the body itself is uncon
stitutional and its acts null and void.
The table for irrelevant propositions
from such a source, and the previous
question to cut short unprofitable de
bate, will no doubt very soon be the
rule of action adopted by the loyal

lie waxed wroth at the idea that the
" white man will go to the bottom, and
the dregs and scum will stay on top."
lie said these " dregs and scum" would
soon meet the fate of Sodom and Go
morrah. We will tell the Governor
what sort of " white" men will not go
to the bottom, for they are there al
ready, and they will " stay" there.
1 hey are such corrupt and graceless
traitors as he w. The loyal people of
this State, white and black,' will govern
this State. They will make air such
persons as Gov. Vance know their
place. He speaks of the " dregs and
scum." This is meant for a 'honest
and as decent citizens as there are in
the State. The iGovernor degrades
himself by Biich language, and hurts
no one for whom it is Want. Poor

We have published in full to day, the de
bate on the exuulsionof reporter for the
North Carolinian who. following in the foot- ,
steps of the (so called) "White mau'e party"
organ throughout the State, who devote the
greater portion of their space to abuse of -the
delegates to the Constitutional Conven
tion, abused his privilege to such an extent
that some mark of disapprobation , was ne
cessary. He was therefore expelled. It is a
fit termination to the career of that new
fledged reporter who may learn somewhat
sooner than he otherwise would, that it was
his place to report proceedings and let his
master furnish tho malignity, hold up hon
orable men to ridicule and prate about hon
or, as the Chinamen does when he pronoun
ces all but his favored race "barbarians."
A reporter is assigned a seat in that body
by courtesy, as he well knows, and he must
conduct himself icspectfullv or the courtesy
will be withdrawn. The freedom of the
press has not lenn interfered with, in the
least. The Carolinian can acid a picture of
a soldier to its columns over its partizan re
port, as does the little Star if it choses, and
no one will complain. Xo one cares what
it says or does, in its columns, but every
public as well as private body has the right
to protect itself from insults within it3 walls,
and all candid minds, after reading the re
port of the debate, will add "served hi in
right." Wilmington Pott.
Our opponents thought at one time
they would make much capital out of
the cry that the freedom of the press
had been assailed by the expulsion of
this Reporter. But the cry was not
taken tip. The people saw and felt that
the President of the Convention did
right. The Post has taken the true
view of tho matter. There are others
in the Convention, not Reporters, who
are in the habit of insulting the body
by theirYemarks. The Convention can
afford to tolerate them as long as they
restrict themselves to the use of their
tongues. They are harmless. They
think they are making capital for them
selves, whereas they are simply adding
to the strength of the Republican
We saw yesterday a couple of poor
white women from the country, who
gave us a most touching account ot the
suffering among the poor. One of them
told us she had to spin her ten cuts of
cotton yarn for a bushel of meal, and
could not tell one day what she would
have the next to support life. There
are, to-day, not less than five hundred
human beings in Wake County who
are suffering the most acute pangs of
cold and huuger.
We can hope for no change for the
better until the State is restored to the
Union. This is the great present hope
for business of all kinds. Business is
stagnant, credit is destroyed, and the
burthen of this falls especially on the
poor. The man who obstructs the re
turn of the State to the Union is a pub
lic ettemy. Let the poor avoid such a
man. Let them curse him in their
righteous anger, when they are endu.
ring the pangs and the sorrows which
he has brought upon them, and which
he would continue, to gratify bis hel
lish ambition. The miserable traitors
who recently held their so-called Con
servative Convention in Raleigh, are the
deadly enemies of our suffering poor,
and when they dare to mount the
stump to address the poor and ask them
for their votes, they should be met
with hisses and scorn.
We learn that the Freedmen's School
House, in the neigborhood of Hill's
Store, Randolph County, on the Uwhar
rie, was set on fire a few nights since,
and consumed. The Teacher had been
previously insulted in various ways, and
injuries done to the School House. The
fire was the work of some Rebel incen
diary. We may imagine to some ex
tent what would be the fate of the Union
people of this State, native and adopted,
if Gov. Vance and his party should ob
Keep it before the people that Gov.
Graham, the Rebel leader in this State,
says that color is the true line of demar
cation as to suffrago, and that, in his
opinion, no colored man ought to be
allowed to vote.
There in some jubilation among Rebels
over the assumption that old line Whigs
and oh I line Democrats are acting together
in harmony in opposition to the Republican
party. If this be so, the union between
these forces is late in the day. The two old
parties in this State dissolved in 1800. The
better portion of both united to torm the
Union party, and the refuse portion went
with Mr. Davis and Mr. Yancey. The Re
publican party is based on that same Union
party; and though the latter lost many of its
members ou account of the fiery trials
through which it was obliged to pass, yet
many thousands of the old Whigs and old
Democrats who joinid hands and hearts at
that time for the good of tho country, arc still
together under the glorious flag of that party
which saved the nation. There is no occa
sion for old Whigs and old Democrats, who
are sincere Unionists, to unite at this lale
day. They are united already, and they in
tend to make a good Constitution, ratify it,
restore the State to the Union, and give to
this people a beneficent, stable, loyal gov
ernment. We have been pleased fo see in the
City lately those sterliug Republicans,
E. T. Blair, of Randolph, C. C. Wade,
of Montgomery; and YV. F. Hender
son, of Davidson. They brought the
most cheering news from the Re
publicans of their section of the State.
The Wilmington Journal, speaking of the
late Rebel Convention in this City, says :
"Old line Democrats and old line Whigs,'
eschewing former politics, mingling together
for the common good of the State. It is
grand, it is sublime."
The Journal forgets that
"Devil with devy damned arm concord hold."

'v; : ' Mr. Jlodma., ' ' .The Prescriptive Spirit of on Enemies.
'.We copy to-day from the Tarborough I. .We are constantly told by the Rebel lead-
Southerner, an article in relation to this gen-. , ders that the Republican party is pmsctpp
tlcman. to show the estimate placed npon a rive, revengeful, cruel ; thut it is governed

Mr. Rodman was honestly a secessionist, the white people of the South. This is tho ;
He went into the rebellion as a devoted ad- charge. Our readers know there is no troth
vocate of the rights of his section, and he
maintained his opposition to the national
authority nntil the last gun was fired and
the South was subjugated. When the
end came, he not only u accepted the situ
ation," but he. submitted in good faith,
as an honest man and , a . gentleman,
to the results of the conflict Submitting
thus, he was prepared to unite with those :
who were dedicating themselves to the work
of repairing the losses of the war, and of
building up again on sure foundations the
prosperity of his native State.
What else, as a candid, honest man, could
ho hnve done f On oue hand were the
promptings of passion and revenge ; on the
other love of country. - He chose to obey
the latter, and in doing so identified him
self with the Republican party. " His of
fence bath this extent, no more." His tal
ents, which are acknowledged by his assail
ants,' were thus devoted to good, and not to
evil ; and he has shown, by his acts, that he
is ready and anxious to atone for the error he
committed by lifting his arm, without good
cause, against the government of his coun
try. We lclieve Mr. Rodman is sincere in
this, and that he is actuated by no other
wish than to serve and benefit bis country.
We are not at liberty to question his mo
tives as long as his conduct has for its end
the good of his country. "The tree is
known by its fruits."
The Southerner assails his motives. Who
made that paper a judge in such matters?
It by no mean follow that the standard it
sets up for itself and its friends is the one
by which Mr. Rodman should be tried.
A citizen in this crisis is cither for or
against the gyvemmeut. There can be no
middle ground now. Mr. Rodman doubt
less feels the force of this truth, and has
acted accordingly by identifying himself
with the only party that can preserve the
We sh.mld be gratified it there were more
of our public men with Mr. Rodman's ante
cedents who would pursue the course he is
pursuing. The Republican party can not go
to any man, but any man who submits un
conditionally to the will of the nation as
expressed by the Congress, may come to it. It
the great body of the leaders of the Rebellion
would follow the example of Mr. Rodman,
we should soon have peace, good will, and
prosperity in this State. If they were
honest, as he is, they would do it. They
promised to do it in 1863, but they have
broken the promise ; and because Mr. Rod
man is true to the pledges which were made
when the relielliowas suppressed, and they
are false to those pledges, he is thus assailed
and his motives questioned.
Mr. Rodman, and those like him in their
antecedents who have joined the Republican
party, cau well afford to bear these reproach
es and taunts. The bitter and unjust man
ner in which they are assailed by the enemies
of the government will but strengthen their
hold on the confidence of all true patriots.
Montgomery, Ala.. Feb. 6. The election
which commenced here to day has proceed
ed without the slightest disturbance. A
raw, drenching rain has liecn falling all day.
Thousands of negroes have been standing in
it in order to vote ; they show a wolfish ea
gerness to deposit their ballots. Many have
walked from fifteen to twenty miles to get
to the polls. Not more than half a dozen
white men voted, but although the Conserv
atives do not cast their ballots, they have
challenging committees at al! the precincts.
If is impossible to tell what the result will
be, as the election continues three days lon
ger. Hundreds of negroes, already drench
ed to the skin, will have to bivouac in the
street to-night, but they don't seem to care
as long as they get in their tickets. Gen.
Meade is here watching the course of events.
The above dispatch from a Rebel source,
pays the highest compliment to the colored
voters of Alabama. These men know that
the contest for liberty is still going on, und
that it is quite as important to use the bal
lot now as it was the bullet during the re
bellion. The Rebels are chuckling at the hope that
a majority of the registered vote of Alabama
may not have been cast on the question of
ratification. Even if this hope should be
confirmed it will make no difference as to
the admission of the State. Congress can
cure the defect by an enactment of ten lines,
declaring that a majority of the votes polled
having been cast for the Constitution, it is
accordingly ratified. Do these Rebel leaders
suppose they are wiser or stronger than the
Congress of the United States ? The States
will go back under the present acts. Presi
dent Johnson and all Rebeldora to the con
trary notwithstanding. It is so written
the Book of Destiny.
The Reconstruction Committee at Wash
ington has recommended that the political
disability imposed by the reconstruction acts
be removed from Gen. Longstreet. with oth
ers. Gen. Longstreet is now in Washington,
I and has been cordially received by loyal
members of Congress and eminent military
' officers. He is unconditionally submissive
. to the na ional authority, and an earnest ad
f. vocate of the reconstruction acta. Gen.
j Longstreet is acting like a patriot and a
man of sense. We may expect soon to hear
the Rebel press open on him. But who
cares for the bark of such animals? They
can not bite.
Our thanks to E. A. Vogler, Esq., ef Sa

well made pair of pegged Balmoral shoes,
from the Shoe Manufactory of Vogler & Co.
of that place. This Manufactory is now
fairly at work, making men's, women's, boy's
and Misses' shoes of various grades. Let us
encourage our home manufactures. '
Salem is famous for its manufactories, its
Schools, its intelligence, and thrift and in
dustry. Dr. Hay and Nathan Gulley, Esq.. were
detained from their scats for several days of
the week just past, by indisposition. This j
will account for the absence of their names
from the yeas and nJ 00 those days. ., '
in it. The world knows, and history -will
record, that the Republican party, wielding
as it has the government of this country for,
the last seven years, has exhibited forbear
ance, liberality, and magnanimity without a
parallel... The life of no traitor has been ta
ken. No man's land has been confiscated.
Protection to life and security to property
has lieen guaranteed to all- to outlaws, trait
ors and murderers as well as to the loyal, the
virtuous and the true. But nothing will
satisfy these Rebel leaders save their com
plete restoration to power, and the extinc
tion of every noble sentiment of freedom in
the colored race. Give them this, with the
power to shoot and hang the Unionists and
to confiscate their property, and they would
be happy, and would regard the general
government thus perverted to their wicked
purposes as the " best government the world
ever saw." j
Gov. Vance is a recognized exponent of
the Rebel leaders of this State. He was
their big gun in their late Rebel Convention.
Among other things, he has threatened that
when he and his party should again obtain
. control in this State, they would make the
condition of tho Republicans of botlnraces
more intolerable than Sodom and Qomorrah.
He said it, and neither he nor his mouth
pieces dare deny it. They would if they
could, but they well know the lie would be
fastened upon them. Well, now, fellow-citizens,
does that show aChristian.spirit? Is this
the way to build up this State, to promote
good feeling among the people, and to re
store prosperity and stab'.e government?
The Republicans say that if continued in
power they will do all they can to improve
and build op the State to protect all in
life, liberty and property, and to promote,
on a loyal basis, good feeling among our
people. They propose to hang no one.
They propose to deprive no man of his pro
perty. They would shudder at the thought
ot consigning any human being to the rain
of fire which destroyed Sodom and Gomor
rah. They are men. not demons. Neither
would they destroy even the good name of
any one, by slander, falsehood, or malicious
What a contrast in this respect between
the Republicans and the Conservatives, so
called, led by Gov. Vance ! The Republi
cans are willing to live and let live. They
intend to keep the disloyal out of office, and
to see that the State in all its departments
is well governed by loyal men; but they
have no spirit in their bosoms that would
exterminate any portion of our people, or
consign them to hell fire, as threatened by
Gov. Vance and his friends and followers.
; la December, 1804, Gov. Vance made a
speech in the Commons Hall, in this City,
in which be said that deserters and recusant
conscripts should be caught or put in the
ranks, or shot on sight, or at least con
demned and executed by a drum-head court
martial ; and the Conservative, his organ, in
its issue of December 21st, 1364, echoing his
sciuimciits. said :
! " All bushwhackers and tories should be
tried by court martial, arid dealt with ac
cording to the rigors of military law."
Gov. Vance was then, as he is still, a vio
lent man of Hood! Fellow-citizens, make
your own choice between his violent and
bloody counsels and the mild and beneficent
sway of the Republican party.
The Republicans of Carteret will hold a'
meeting in Beaufort, on the 18th, to appoint
delegates to the State Convention on the
26th. The Republicans of Jones will hold
a meeting for the same purpose on the 15th,
at Trenton. The Republicans of Craven
will hold a meeting in Newbern, on the 16th,
lor the same purpose. Keep the ball rolling.
A Deserved Compliment.
The Convention yesterday, on motion of
Mr. Abbott, passed a resolution tendering the
thanks of the people of this State to Maj.
General Nelson A. Miles, Assistant Commis
sioner of the Freedman's Bureau, for the
faithful, efficient and impartial manner in
which he has performed his duties.
This is a deserved compliment to a faith
ful and worthy officer.

General Grant closes his correspondence
with President Johnson in the following
forcible paragraph :
The course you would have it under

law and without orders from you; while
the course I did pursue, ' and which I never
doubted you fully understood was in accor
dance with law. and not in disobe lience ot

integrity as a man have been so violently

the resistance of law, for which you hesita

of War, my superior, and your subordinate,'

PROOFS OF THE SUPERIORITY OF
This country has reason to be proud ot this
splendid specimen ol American operative genius
and enterprise. That it will work a revolution lu
the watch manufacturing of the world 110 one
can doubt who examines the operations ol the
Waltbam establishment, for it turns out watch
movements at just about ouc half tlie cost of Im
ported movements beside the uniform reiiabili
ty of the machine-made watches i ust give them
a great advantage over all others wherever known
A poor time-piece of the machine make will be
as rare in tbe future as a good one of hand make
has been Lcictoforc, for machinery Is arbitrary In
its performance, and can make a perfect article
just as caey as one that Is worthless. It will be
a cause of congratulation If this highly useful
American Euterprise shall have the (fleet of
driving out of market the thomanda of trashy
foreign articles miscalled timekeepers, by furnish
ing so excellent and economical a substitute."
A. T. Tuittt.
" We have had oue ot the works of this Com
pany In 0 case for some considerable time, snd
comparing Ib-.iu with former first-class works ot
different manufacture possessed by us, they bavo
established In our opinion their superiority over
any ever Introduced for correctness as time
pieces." The World.
" We notice with regret (writing or the Parle
Exposition) the absence ot spi clment of Ameri
can man u fact ire, which, although only compar
atively ol recent birth among us, la already pro
ducing results of the most satisfactory character.
The watches manufactured by the Waltbam
Company are certainly, so far as strength, dura
bility,' and excellence as tlmc-kccpcts are con
cerned, as good as anything produced by the
French or Swiss manufactures." JT. T. Herald.
" Tbe beauty, the precision, the greatereheap
ness, the nnilorm excellence of a watch con
structed by machinery to eqclsltu that tho mere
spectacle ot Its operation is poetic, gradually
give tbe American Watches a public preference
which will not be deceived." Harpers Weekly.
