Friday, : ': '' June 25, 1375 AN ELECTION FOR ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY DELEGATES TO A CON VENTION TO REVISE TEE STATE CONSTITUTION WILL BE MELD ON TEE FIRST THURSDAY OF AUGUST, 1875. TEE CONVENTION WILL MEET AT RALEIGH ON TEE 6TE OF TEE FOLLOWING SEPTEMBER. FOR TIIE CONVENTION: FREDERICK PHILIPS, ASD II. C. BOURNE. The Whipping Post. Our much respected cotemporary, the Winston Sentinel, a democratic newspaper that reflet tha r;"nn of the party in its section of the State, came out a few weeks ago with an article strongly advocating the reestahlishment of the whips ping post by the Constitutional Convention. We concur in ita opinion that under our present sys tem the State is burdened with a heavy expense, and sinco the abol ishment of the whipping post our jails have been filled with crimnials convicted of minor offences whose only vulnerable place is their backs. In the West the situation is differs ent from ours. There the negro race is in the minority and as a general rule, perhaps there are as many rogues of one color as anoth er. The whipping post then with them would have in all probability the same beneficial effect that it had before the war, but we are in clined to think as far as the East is concerned it is unwise yet awhile to reinstitute corporal punishment. Whatever impression may prevail, we believe that confinement in our jails and penitentiaries is a terror to negroes as well as whites. They have been a free people long enough to love liberty and no greater pun ishment can be inflicted upon them than to take it away. Stripes are no new thing, they are used to them, while liberty is something they ap preciate dearly. In the East, it is indeed an un common thing to hear of a white man being indicted for larceny. We have known but one case in quite a length of time in this county. Were tin whipping post re-established by a convention of democrats the ne gro, unable to appreciate the true intent of the law, would construe it to mean ' old master' and as few whites would ever be whipped, he would lookupon it as an oppressive discrimination against his color. TTT i t 1 e ail Know what a brute he is when driven to desperation. If whipping is law again, we may hear of gin houses being burned every where, dwellings burned over the hea7s of families, midnight assas inations and all kinds of bloody crimes. With negro juries and ne gro sympathising courts it would be difficult indeed to convict. Then white men would be tempted to take the law in their hand3 and res vive the Ku Klux system. This would invoke federal interference and there would be no telling where the mischief would end. We rejoice to know that day by . daj the relations between ths two races are becoming more and more amicable, that the black man is be coming convinced that the white man is his true friend, that he is beginning to look with distrust upon the vile slanders emanating from carpet-bag sources. Let this rela tion continue till animosity entirely disappears, then nay the whipping post be re-established with impu nity. At present, we think it iras prudent and calculated to engender a greater animosity between the races than has ever existed hereto fore. 'Tha Color Line.' The Petersburg Nines says the declaration made the other day by the Hon. Ben. Hill, of Georgia, that the negro will drop out of politics, or, rather, he will drop himself out, and within five years will vote just as Ids employer asks Jam,' seems to have been exceed ingly distasteful to the Chicago Tribune and other radical onrans of the north, who still desire to fan th flame of sectional discord and strife. They pretend to interpret the declaration to mean a war upon the negro and a purpose on the part of the south to rob him, by in timidation or otherwise, of all his rights as a freedman ! The utter falaity of this interpretation none can fail to see, for the the clear meaning of Mr. Hill's declaration is that in a few years the negro will voluntarily 'drop out of poli- tics' when rid of the control of the carpeUbagger who has heretofore lead him by the noss, and that the business relations and indentity of interests of the two races will be come so complete that they will ran in the same groove of politics, and the negro, being the inferior race, will very naturally vote pretty much as his 'employer asks him.' And why should they npt do so? iave they not, ever since the right of suffrage was conferred upon them, voted in solid column just as carpet" baggers have asked them to vote ? Has not the whole race stood di rectly arrayed at the ballot-box against the white people, and in antagonism to the best interests of our people and section ? Why should this state of things longer continue ? and why should not the colored man vote freely with the conserf ative party of the south with which all of their business and political interests are so insepara bly connected ? But here i3 where the sting comes in with these radical sore hono Sn lnncas the colored man voted as a unit with the republican party, so long did he receive the unbounded plaudits of northern radicals. Suffrage was first given to him to secure his vote, and not to enlarge his liberty and benefit his race; but now when they see it is probable the negro voters in the futuro will 'drop out' of the color line and vote as they please, they become alarmed and indignant, and seek to take out their reTenge by abuse of our people. " Ostracism." The Editor of the Echo in notic ing a paragraph in the Southern er a few weeks ago under this head did us the justice to publish our re marks verbatim. We therefore con ceive it to be almost useless to reply to his false deductions. Every reader of that paper at all fair minded saw there were no insinua tions on our part of the character charged. It was far from our meaning to intimate that the people of Washington were not old enough to regulate their social relations, that they were rude and impolite to strangers, or that they were not gentlemen and ladies, et cetera. One sentence we indignantly dei nounce. None but a prejudiced mind could so construe what we said as to imply that we intimated "young ladies received them with open and outstretched arms !" Such would be an insult and we would sooner lose a right arm than reflect upon the modesty of the young la dies of a community where such refinement exists as in Washington. If the naval gentleman alluded to came recommended, or were believ ed to be persons of character, we would be the last to argue ihat they should be ostracised merely because they are northern men. The Echo knows as much. We are of the opinion that the strictures of the Echo savor more of a malicious and personal nature than of a genuine desire to wipe out a so-called "slur." But for the editor's inability to pur chase the one half interest that a " certain acquaintance " of his owns in the paper and which he has made frequent attempts to get, perhaps his gallant (?) brain would never have concocted an article whose purport was to place the Southern er in an unenviable light. This is not the first attempt of the kind, but should be the last. It is neith er manly nor brave to prostitute one's columns to gratify a personal grievance. We regret having been unwitting ly drawn into anything like personal controversy. It is disgusting to the general reader, but the peculiar circumstances this time may induce him to excuse it. A Friendly Union. By all accounts the visiting mili tary organizations from the south received a most enthusiastic wel come at hands of the Bostonians. In the thronged streets, men of Boston regiments were often seen linked arm in arm with the grays clad boys of Maryland, Virginia and South Carolina; and the officers of the southei v. troop3 were taken in hand by the best citizens of the Hub and made welcome at their clubs and homes. At the Mavor's reception in Music Hall, the ap pearance of such prominent cx Confederates as Colonel Andrew, of South Carolina, and Geteral Fitz hugh Lee was greeted with the most enthusiastic cheerinjr, and there words were received with emphatic demonstrations. The battle-scarred heroes of tho north, and those best known for their devotion to the Union cause in past years, were most eager in their applause. The zeal of both sides in promoting the cause of good feeling was al -together gratifying. There were many touching demonstrations of reciprocal good will. Among the displayed mottoes was observed, 'south and north united; thank God. Similar sentiments were seen all about the city. At the foot of Bunker -ffill were found planted Palmettos ani Mass achusetts Pine trees. The Mary land Fifth Regiment made itself the theme of universal praise about the city by the graceful demonstration of marching to Charlestown, and crowning the Soldiers' Monument to the Union dead with a magnifi cent wreath of flowers, bearing the inscription 'Maryland's Tribute to the Dead.' In the grand procession the soldiers from Maryland, Vir ginia, South Carolina and the Dis trict of Columhia were showered with expressions of admiration and good will. The Washington Star says that this hand to hand re-union of north and south in the old 'Cradle of Liberty' on such cordial terms will do more to restore good feeling than whole years of argument or declamation. Convention. The convention campaign is opening throughout the state. Our western exchanges, with few ex ceptions, bring us gratifying infor-. mation. Prudent, able and true men are being nominated as dele gates. The sign of the times are that our majority will fall ; little short ef what it was in thelast House. Let them frame such a constitution as will be acceptable to a patient people, then notwithstanding the party issue made by the radical party, North Carolinians will rise up in their true greatness and rat- ify the good work. Between Two Fires. The Southerner has assuredly been brought to grief ! This week the Washington (D. C.) Chronicle handled us with gloves off in a col umn lecder for publishing the sen timents of our Pitt county corres pondent (R. W. J.) protesting against indiscriminate joint decora tions and that is followed by a yelp of the Washington (N. C.) Echo, because of a fling we made of late at Hue coats. That we are not smothered is quite a surprise. Per haps we may yet exist long enough to come back at tho loyal. In an other column we dismiss the Echo, and in our next will attempt to do the same thing with the Chronicle, provided in the mean time Mars Grant don't send a few bayonets down to destroy the "old rebel" that some think is still latent with in us. judge moore Week before last we called at tention to a tyranical act of which the judicial beauty of the- 2nd dis trict, one wm. a. moore, was guilty while holding Pitt Superior Court. We have the pleasure this week of presenting to our readers on first page an editorial from the Grcc.-i-vdle Register commenting upon the act in detail, and cordially invite perusal by every white man within our jurisdiction. Just think of it! The 'rebels' of Richmond, Norfolk and Charles ton, S. C., making a grand raid on Boston, the 'hub' of 'true loyalty.' Is not the Republic in danger? Won't the Knights of Richmond, the Blues of Norfolk and the Light Artillery of Charleston capture Bunker Hill without firing a gun ? But then this 'rebel' victory will be so displeasing to the National Re- pabliaan, and to President Grant, and to several others of the same patriotic kidney ! They do hate so much to see any thing tending to 'peace' until after the next Presi dential election, that another war, pestilence and famine would please them better. We have spared our readers the nuisance of th? Beecher trial. The public may be glad to hear that it is near its end, and that a subject so injurious to religion and so de grading to morality is soon to give place to some other six months won der for the sensat;cn lovers of the North. The Beecher trial was enlivened Monday by a sensation by which a momentary glimpse was obtained of the mysteries which are suppos ed to be beneath tie surface. A juryman took the extraordinary course of asking the Judge to in struct counsel to make no mere re marks about attempts to corrupt the jury. It was an unwise act, for Judge Neilson may be depended up on to protect the jury without prompting. But Mr. Beach did not shrink from the position into which he was thus forced, but exclaimed that he was ready to prove the fact that the jury had approached. With his usual good sense Judge Neilson ended this scene by deciding that the charge of tampering with the jury should not be considered till the end of the trial. The Washington Republican which is the organ of the great unwashed, has gotten fearfully mad because the Vice President ate ice cream with Mrs. Jefferson Davis at Memphis. Governor Walker, of Virginia, and General J ubal Early, have been appointed on a committee to re ceive the statue of Stonewall Jack son, which will soon arrive at Rich mond, from England, and be erec ted on the Capitol grounds. We do not fancy the political out look in North-Carolina. It lacks life and activity. Why is it thus? Too many of our talking men aro ignored as candidates and too many brought forward who can't make a good talk. There is rather too much objection aised to lawyers simply bacause they are lawyers. Lawyers are generally speech-makers, and they are the boys to enthuse the masses and get up ex citement. They will also be found very convenient to defend the right and expose the wrong. Many far mers and mechanics are competent to do the same thing, but too little re- of candidates brought out in countio. hotly contested by the two parties. We may recur to the subject again. Milton Chronicle The States that vote next are these: In August North Carolina and Alabama vote for delegates to a Constitutional Convention; Ken tucky holds its regular State elec tion. In September California and Maine have State elections, those are followed by Ohio and Iowa on the 12th of October. New York Ledger. The Greatest Insult Ever Offered to the American People. But I was made to believe that the public good called me to make the sacrifice. but it must be remembered that all the sacrifices, except that of comfort, had been made in ar cepting the 'first term.' Gen. Grant's Letter to Gen. White. A few years ago there was a man who had been educated in our West Point Academy at the public ex pense. He had dropped out of the army and become a hauler of cord wood to the St. Louis marke Common report says he used to be found dallying long by the road side on his way home. Later he was a clerk in a leather store in Galena, very poor. He was appointed a colonel in the army, and promoted and pro moted and promoted, until he had the command of all our armies. Many persons always thought that much, very much of his succe s was owing to the superior oppor tunities that were given him. Finally, a rank and ttitle never before conferred in this country were created especially for him. He was made the General of the United States Army. Then he was nominated for President of the United States and elected. Next he was re-elected. Elected and reelected to what? To the highest elective office ever created by man ! To an office, to hold which, in the infancy and be ginning of the republic, George Washington was proud ! An office which Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson gloried in the privilege of filling. And now look upon the the beg gar on horseback the penniless wood hauler despised then, not for his poverty, but for his gross weaknesses and luults, coming out in a letter and spitting in the face of the whole American people, and insulting them in the most odious and offensive manner, and prating upon the 'sacrifices' 'sacrifices,' that's the work which he he he Ulysses S. Grant uses the sac rifices he made in becoming their Chief Magistrate ! Out upon the poor fool ! Who does he imagine he is? Let the contempt of the whole great Ameri can people he has insulted cover him countless fathoms deep ! Tho University. The Trustees of this institution last week elected seven professors, who are gentlemen of culture and ability. These, the Wilmington Star locates thusly 'First in experience and promi nence is Rev. Oharles Phillips, D. D., a professor of Mathematics in the old University, now occupying the same chair at Davidson College, a gentleman of great dignity of char acter and intellectual force. Dr. Phillips is a son of Rev. Dr. James Phillips, so long and favorably known as a professor at Chapell Hill. i7e is chosen Professor in the Col leg of Mathematics. J. DeBerniere Hooper is the scm oir Prefessor in the College of Lan guages For many years Mr. Hoop, er has presided over high schools, and is now Principal of the Wilson Collegiate Seminary. Ha is a son of a former University professor, Rev. William Hooper," D. D. Mr. Hooper is a fine linguist. Frof. John Kimberly, of J.she ville, filled the chair to which he is now elected in tho old University, namely: that of Agricultural and Applied Chemistry. Perhaps the best men in the State for the pace. Rev. A. W. Mangum, pastor of the Edenton Street Methodist Church, in Raleigh, and a descen dant of the illustrious United States Senator, Wiley P. Mangum, will be professor in the important school of Philosophy. Rev. A. F. Redd, of Raleigh, a University of Virginia man, and editor of the Biblical Recorder, the State Baptist organ, is chosen pro fessor in the College of Physical Science. If he makes as good a teacher of geology and chemistry as he is an editor he will be useful to the University, which needs such fresh young talent. Mr. George T. Winston, of Bertie (we think,) having had many years experience as a instructor in the department to which he is elected, it is presumed will make a capable adjunct professor of Languages. Mr. Ralph II. Graves, Jr., is son of the well known R. H. Graves, of Horner & Graves' school at Hillsboro. He is tho youngest of the professor's, bright and well in formed, and will not be the small man of the faculty by any means.' The election of a President was postponed to some time in August next. A sterm scattered a dancing party at the Central Hotel, Hickory, when the lightning split the roof. And now Wilson has caught the 'spelling bee' mania. She is wels come to it. The Charlotte Observer learns that the Presidency of the University was offered to Gov. Grakam, but that he declined. the honor. xne Sentinel says Tom Huske, of Hillsboro, carelessly left hia gun cock ed and was standing with his right hand on the muzzle, when the gun fired off, blowing his hand to pieces. Two negro men in Wilson, named respectively, Mills and Carter, snap ped wives and left the country. The Times is of the opinion that all the parties wero cheated. Speaking of the prospect of the Conservative candidate fer member of the Convention, the Wilson Ad vance says ita intelligence from all parts of Nash is of the most cheering character. A few days ago Hon. H. M. Polk, of Bolivar, Tenn., in the name of the Central Executive Commtte of the Centennial Celebration of the Meck lenburg Declaration of Independanco, of Tennessee, sent through Governor Porter, a national flag one of four used on the great occasion. The citizens of Bertie county, are making an effort to raise funds to erect a monument in the town of Windsor to the memory of the Con federate soldiers from that county who were killed or died during the war. The monument is to cost 8500. Appreciating his lecture on Friday night, the Jewish element of Raleigh presented Gov. Vance, on Saturday afternoon, at the residence of Mr. Theodore Joseph with a handsome gold watch. Tho presentation ws made by Mr. M. Grausman in an el-, egant manner, and the gift was re ceived by tho Governor in his usual felicitous style. Gov. Vance, by this lecture, is winning to him tho Jew ish element of tho land. Raleigh Neics : ' A friend writes us from Beaufort that ha has capture ed an eel weighing over 100 pounds and more than 20 feet long, which has anchored by running a stick through a slit in his tail. He is hav ing a ' wooden tank' made and cork ed and intends sending him by freight to us here.' The News is du bious as to what 'will do with it.' Col, George Williamson, the able Senator from Caswell, in reply to nu merous solicitations becomes a can didate for convention, prints a card in the Mil ton Chronicle, in which he declines. He says : ' I was a mem ber of the Legislature calling a con vention and would as a Legislator have to pass upon the action of that body and I should feel that in passing up on my own nets I should lose that independence of thought and action which I always hope to be able to exercise.'
