C Friday, : : : May 7, 1875 AX ELECT IOX TOR OXE HUXDRED AND TWENTY DELEGATES TO A COX VENT J OX TO REJ'ISE THE STATE C0XSTITVT10X WILL BE HELD OX THE FIRST THURSDAY OF AUGUST, 1875. THE COXVFXTIOy WILL MEET AT RALEIGH OX THE 6TJ1 OF THE FOLLOW IXG SLFTEMBER. The Radical Gams. There seems to be a general de lusion with the democratic press throughout the State that the radi cal party proposes to elect only such delegates to the convention as will go there and adjourn without mak ing any amendments to the consti tution. We are not surprised that such is the case. The- radical pa pers everywhere are calling upon the party to elect such men, but it is merely a feint. "We believe their object is to secure a majority of the delegates at any cost, and this doc trine to adjourn without touching the constitution is promulgated to engender a lukewarmness in the democratic masses. They will spare no efforts to secure a majority and if they succeed in getting it, two objects are patent. They will so gerrymander the State as to have absolute control of the Legislature in times to come. Then they will put it beyond the power of the peo ple to undo their work ; we mean they will so legislate that it will be a matter of impossibility to rectify any evil that may be inflicted upon us by a radical majority. They will insert a clause that no conven tion shall be called within a speci fied time from the date of ratifica tion by the people of their revised constitution. Suppose they should say for instance that no convention shall be called in twenty years, or only by an unanimous vote of the Legislature, and in the event that they were to patch up the constitu tion to suit their own ends and inn ilict the most intolerable burdens r.pon us, what redress would our people have ! We would be power less. Our hands would be tied and nothing short of a revolution could unloose them. We are of the opinion, therefore, J '.at the issues ;it stake are most ital. It is no child's play. Had iwilism when driven to desparation mast indeed be dreaded. We will l-e called upon on the first Thurs day in August to consider a ques tion that involves the fundamental ; i inciples of guvernmtnt of liberty ::.-elf. What Nerth Carolinian tlien iio loves his State will prove re creant to the interests of his fellow v. 'aite men on that great day? Surely there will not be one. MMMi sltWh) Farmers complain of hard times. es, times are hard and why so? Not mainly because farmers go on the ill cotton' principle, not the effect "f the usury bill at all, but sotne i fiing else that $300,000.00 dol 1 irs Edgecombe annually consumes m whiskey. Think of it, three hundred thousand dollars every year for whiskey ! Nothing left to diow for it a. ileal waste. Of course times are hard. The real estate in Edgecombe in round numbers is valued at $4,000, 000.00. Take eight per cent for the profit annually accruing from that amount and you have 320, 000.00. $:!00,00e00 of the sum are wasted in whiskev. As Ions as this sort of thing is kept up, farmers may expect no money and very hard times. Edgecombe farmers ti few years ago wanted a rail road from Tarbos ro to Williamston : the enterpiiie went by the board. A year or two a.'O, Edgecombe farmers wanted to establish a female seminary at Tarboro : the enterprise went by the board. Of late they tried to sustain a steamboat lino on Tar River : the enterprise went by the board. Suppose the $300,000. 00 annually spent for whiskey were invested in enterprises of this nature. In a few years there would be a female seminary in Tarboro, a steamboat line on Tar River, a rail road to Williamston, all in a flourishing c l,titMi and times Mould never be- h.trd. What v.irli the Editorial Conven tion on the 11th at Wilmington, and the (J rand Lodge of Odd Fellows on the same day at Elizabeth City, the Medical Convention at Wilson on the l'Jth, and the Centennial at Charlotte on the tiOih, the editors of the Siat.' i !

On the 20th of this month, says the Washington Chrnicl, republic can, the anniversary of tha Dec laration of Independence comes off at Charlotte, Mecklenburg county, North Carolina. We learn that ex tensire preparations are being made for tbis celebration of an event so honorable to the character of that modest and unpretending State. The citizens of that State from her mountains to the seaboard will unite in this auspicious event. The State of Tennessee, the daughter of North Carolina, through a com mittee appointed by the General Assembly of that State, and the Tennessee Historical Society have expressed co-operation in this event; and recommend that the 20th of May shall be a centennial holiday. The Virginia House of Delegates have recommended its citizens te participate, and blend Virginia's 'sisterly sympathy and good will in North Carolina's rejoicing.' The Historical Society of Philadelphia has, with other sections of the coun try, expressed similar sentiments. It is event of which the State of North Carolina is justly proud. It stands as a monument of patrio tic daring, unsurpassed if not un equalled in the history of the couns try. That 'the men of Mecklen- burg,' without any immediate peril of invasion, without any intimation of support, or co-operation from any power, or concert of action from any other section, should on the 20th May, 1775, declare them selves 'a free and independent peo ple under the control of no power than that of God and the general government of Congress,' is a sub ject of admiration, and full of moral sublimity. The tone and character of these people were formed from the moral training and teachings of their early settlers. Many, nay the most, were emigrants from Scotland, Ireland and Germany. These first landed in Pennsylvania, and then settled in North Carolina. They, fleeing from persecutions cf the old world, took with them the principles of true religion and in domitable patriotism. These were signally displayed in the event we refer to. Ennobling as this event is, there are other historic events relative to this modest State which should be remembered. It was on the shores of this State that the firsr, Anglo-Saxon anchor rested. In July, 1584, the ships sent by Sir Walter Raleigh rested at Roa noke, where they found, in the lan guage of the historian of the ex pedition, 'a people most gentle, loving and faithful, void of all guile and treason. It was at Alamance, May, 1771, that her sons, exasperated by op pressive taxation, met in arms the loyal troops led by Tryon, and then and there wa3 the first blood of the colonists spilled for Liberty. It is not, then, wonderful that a people thus trained should have early de clared independeace. We wish the centennial at Chrrlotte on the 20th inst. the most abundant snccess. Gen. Matt. W. Eansom- A correspondent of the Wilming ton Journal says : The unwavering support uniform ly given by your paper to this dis tinguished Senator finds a cordial, enthusiastic endorsement in the great, popular Democratic heart cf North Carolina. His recent great speech in the Senate places him in the front rank of American states men. It is a rare luxury to read his masterly exhibition of patriotism, eloquence and statesmanship. The abilities and services of Gen. Ran som should make every true North Carolinian proud of the man and proud that North Carolina has such a faithful, untiring, exalted, mag nanimous Senator ia Congress. His comparative silence in the Senator for so long a time caused impatience in some of hia friends at home, but it is plain that they did not comprehend the wis' dom or skill of the noble Senator. He was there laying these deep foundations of influence in the Senate and of usefulness in the na tion which he has attained hy his course, but which he could not have secured by much talking on the floor of the Senate. Big speeches he can make at any time in the Senate, but Senator Ransom went there to serve his State and the South, as well as to cement the Union, and there were abundant occasions for the exercise of hia splendid powers to these noble ends outside of the too popular custom of making speeches, made as too many of them in Congress are, for Buncombe or for sectional effect alone. Silence is often wisdom aiid reticence the highest order of statesmanship. Politicians do not comprehend this truth, but states men do, and it requires a states man like General Ransom to know when to speak and when to maintain silence. He has spoken at the right time and accomplished by it a vast amount of good. No Demo-oratic-Conservative Senator from the South has gained such an ia fluence in Congress and at the North, and is now able to wield such a power for his State and for the South as Senator Ransom. The Cape Fear reigon has no better or abler friend. No man ever worked harder for Wilmington since he has been in Congress. But though living in the East he has a heart so large and so warm for North Carolina that he embraces alike in this common devotion the East and the West, the North and the South. In due time he will enter upon the campaign of the Constitutional Convention, speaking at different points in the State. He has con sented to speak in the new county of Pender, to which he is warmly devoted A rousing mass meeting will welcome him to Pender. Judge Zelly's Southern Trip. Judge Wm. D. Kelly, of Penn sylvania, of late a member of Con gress, returned to Washington, on Thursday last, from a six week's tour through the south, and is high ly pleased with what he saw. He bears most emphatic testimony against the southern policy of his own party in the last Congress. When asked what he thought of the political condition of the south, he used these word : 'The vote I most regret during my fourteen years service in Congress, is that which I cast last winter in favor of the force bill.' He further said, that so far as his observation went, dur ing his extended tour, there was no more necessity for the use of fed eral military force than there is in Pennsylvania and Ohio. He talked with Confederate soL dierf, with nothern men, carpet baggers and travellers, and he was surprised at the good feeling. He said he should hereafter take little stock in southern outrages, espec'al ly if they are reported as occurring in the section he visited. He Gays so far as he saw, and he went with his eye3 and ears open, there was no feeling of fear or dis trust on the part of the colored people, and he could not for the life of him see what use there was for force bills. He was very glad to have made the trip, for it had enabled him to undsrstand the con dition of the south better than he has ever understood it before. He Baid ii was not the Ku klux that was ruining the south, nor was their unhappy condition to be at tributed to the hatred by the south ern people to the people of the nonh nor was any political question in volved. He thinks the whole trou ble in the south arises from finan cial and industrial causes and he believes that the Bouth will not im prove and advance until the Forty fourth Congress repeals the finan cial legislation of the 43d, until the industries of the country are revived and we are forced to live within our income, the south will grew more and of better. At a recent San Francisco ban quet Senator Sargeant made the following singular statement con cerning Grant. ''I know from his own lips that he looks with anxiety for the speedy end of his service. In a recent conversation he said to me, '1 had no rest during the war; I had none under the succeeding administration only anxiety and responsibility; I have had no rest during the past six years; I have two more years of this labor to en dure, and shall be glad when the end comes." Now, we submit if this be true we have been deceived most wofully. We thought the restlessness was entirely confined o those Republicans who wanted the President to say he did not de sire a third term. We have received a copy of the proceedings of the North Carolina Press Association held on the 21th of May, 1874. We agree with the Roanoke Newt that there is much of interest and importance to the fraternity embodied in them and we are surprised that they should have been so long withheld when it was actually necessary for each editor to be supplied with them as a guide. In no other way could they know whether or not they were acting in accord with their brethren for it was impossible to recollect all that was said and done. The three candidates most promi nently spoken of for the next speak ership of the House of Representa ties, namely : Kerr, of Indiana, Randal of Philadelphia and Fern ando Wood, of New York, are all Pennsylvanians by birth. The Washington Republican don't like Judge "Kelley's opinions of the south and the situation of the country. Of course not, nor will any other extreme radical who has been flooding the country with lies. The Wilmington Star thinks Beaureguard's letter, printed in the New York Herald of Friday, would better have never been writ ten. It was neither time nor place for unbosoming himself on such a subject. In fact there is no time nor place where such unbosoming is pleasant or desirable. Nobody wants to hear a prominent military man confess that he ever desired the raising of the black flag. Such memories of the war throw a pall over these "piping times of peace" and philanthropy and union. Gen. Beaureguard's whole course since the war shows him to be a gentle man unusually alive to the public interests, and we regret that he has made this rash publication, which could subserve no purpose whatever. We clip the following strange statement from a Northern paper, which takes the American Press dispatches : Richmond, Va., April 30. The first game of base ball ever played south of the Potomac was played here yesterday between the Red Stockings of Boston and the Wash ington Club. Base ball is as common at the South as kinky heads and cotton patches. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. OFFICIAL VOTE OF THE Town of Tarboro.
