We feel that our space could not he letter filled, than by the follow ing clear explanation of the Amend ments. Every eastern man should distinctly comprehend their import ance; for upon their ratif. ,ation by the people depends the salvation of the East. Let each sub-elector study them well and be prepared to point out their beauties and benefits to the people. We desire above all things, that canvassers should be Vnrftno-Vlv nostril, so as to enlighten x ' w voters, and we have seen no abler, clearer statement, than this, for which we are endebted to the Raleigh Sen tinel. The state of North Carolina has not been prosperous. The people 01 all sections are in a worse condition than before the war. There are sev eral reasons for this deplorable con dition of our people. Anion; them is one that suggest itself to the mind of every reflecting man familiar with the state, to-wit : That the hands of the people have been tied by tne harsh provisions of the constitution. We have seen our legislature assem ble at Raleigh year after year, com missioned by the people to give xneiu relief they so much needed. C0NVENTICK3. The 29th amendment forbids the calling of any convention without first submitting the matter to the people. This provision needs no comment whatever. None can ob ject to it. It iurnishes a Btrong prooi that ?ne convention was a wise body not given to revolutionary no lions. It is proposed to avoid the possibility ot any more excitement and alarm on the subject of conven tions, by requiring the people to call it at the polls. At present the constitution permits the legislature to call a convention without asking leave of the people. As a consenuence the richts of the people are liable to bo passed on in a convention called witnout tneir con currence. If this amendment be adonted the people will control that matter entirely and no convontion can assemble without their express sanction. This is proper. The government is made by the people; the people ought to decide when con ventions should be called. Germain to the same matter is the proposition that when a part of the constitution is thought to need amendment by a three-fifth vote of tho legislature tho matter may be Bubmitteil to the people. And this i3 the only way of amending tho constitution. We are EBUATED "PIANOS. Also Agents we sell at manufacturer price. Catalogues and Price Lists furnished on application. 'or GEO.

The provisions of the constitution were in the way: A change, there fore, -was necessary. To make the changes a convention was called. Its work is now before the people for ratification at the ballot-box. There ... , 1 i "VTf are some thirty amenumenis. propose to consider them at some length. They may be diviaeu mio three classes : First, those intended to protect and perpetuate the rights and liberties ot the people; seconu, those calculated to promote the gen eral welfare by improving the ma chinery of the government; and tmru, those whose adoption is necessary to strike from the constitution provisi ons that are now out of place in that instrument. SECKET POLITICAL SOCIETIES. The first amendment belongs to the first class. It provides that 'secret political societies should not be tolerated.' The obect ot this is apparent. Secret political societies are baneful in all governments, par ticularly so in a republic. When freemen resort to secret societies to carry out their political ideas and purposes, they lose much of their manhood. No government meets with its death so soon as that which permits secret combinations for its overthrow. If the liberties of the people ai-e to be perpetuated we must l 1 i rpi- 1,. q ignore sucn societies, xms i DegarS, teaching of history, and we roust hearken to tne experience 01 mnukiuu if we would preserve all that is worth having in the government bequeathed to us "by our patriotic fathers. A twelve-month has not passed since the whole United I states were alarmed lest Gen. Grant should seek to per petuate his power. If there had been a secret society wo rking in his interest, as there was i'n IStJS, when the Union Leagues were in operation, Gen. fimnt Tnifht. rcadilv have subvert 1 Hu. ' . the liben'ies ot the people, vent this is the scojio of : COTJXTY G0VKUNJ1KNT, To this, however, there is an ex ception; that the provisions of article 7 of the constitution may bo modified by the legislature. This article re lates to town and county government, and that whole matter is hereafter to be in the power of tho people to regu late and after at pleasure through their representatives m tho legisla ture. In other words, these pro visions ought not to be in the con stitution at all, they are out of place there. They ought to bo the subject of change by statute as they ever have been. The people have always had the right through their legislature to al ter and chango county government at their will and pleasure, lhis is one of the privileges of freemen. If the people of North Carolina are capable ot sell-government, then tuese mat ters ought to be entirely under thoir control. ECFFltAGlS. There is a very important amend ment proposed to article G relating to suffrage. Section 1 of that article is made to read that a vote must live 90 days in his county, and that no person convicted of any infamous crime shall be allowed to vote until restored to citizenship. There ought by all meaDs to be a line drawn be tween a good citizen aud a bad one. If a poll box should be opened at the penitentiary the 500 penitentiary birds there would bo allowed to vote at every election as the constitution stands," and it is now proposed to draw the liia in the interest of hones ty and goo i citizenship. A thieving rascal out not to be on a levsl with an houe3t man. WLen a man has been convicted by an honest jury of stealing, or any other infamous otfence, ho ought to be deprived cl his r;ght to vote until by his subsequent good conduct h has shown that he ie reformed. This amendment, if adopted, uny t.ievent This will be a great convenience, for as the matter now stands, evary little case for the recovery of property has to go to the supe rior court, wnero tne expenses are great and tbe delay tedious. The convention pro poses to increase the power and jurisdiction of the magistrates id favor of the people, and to prevent court costs and officers' fees. SPECIAL COURTS. In addition to the ordinary courts wbicb we have, to-wit ; the supreme and superior courts and magistrate court's, the constitu tion permits the legislature to establish spe cial courts for the trial of petty misdemean ors. The legislature tried this and had spe cial courts in New Hanover and in Craveo . But it did not work well, because the ju risdiction was too limited. The jails were still crowded with persons charged with lar ceny, while these special courts were in daily session, sometimes doing nothing. It is proposed to leave these matters entirely with tho people to regulate for themselves by law. The carpet-baggers who made our constitution in 1S6S thought themselves so much bolter than "the poor white trash of the south," as they were kind enough to call us in our poverty, that they considered that their notions and whims would be bel ter ' ban our experience and matured judg ment. So in their folly they put into the constitution many things which are mere regulations iu other slate3 aud the subject of change as the experience and the needs of the people demand, and they attempted to fix upon us these regulations so that we might not change them when our experience should lead the people to wish an alterations In plain words.these fellows from the .North were unwilling to trust the people of North Caroliua to govern themselves, and under touk to put almost everthing iu the constitu tion so that the people could not exercise their discretion in changing the work which those free-hooters so bungiiugly did for us In case of the establishment of special courts, by the "1st amendment, it is provi ded that the judges and clerks thereof shall be elected in such manner as the legislature may prescribe, and that their term of office shall be eight years. preme court, and take away the rights of the people and of republican office holders. rney aiso saia me convention wuuiu uuoi, $500,000, Now, time has proven the utter falsity of these charges. The convention cost about $30,000, and would not hare cost near so much if the radical members naa not endeavored to prevent .the transaction ot the business for which.the convention was cauea. The conservative members took the oath to obey tbe restrictions; the radical member declared they would not taKe me oatn u obey tbe restrictions, but a letter from Judge Pearson, the cbiet justice, settled tne ques tion against them, and they did take the oath. They afterwards tried to get the democratic members to violate that oatb, but in vain. The homestead was not mtcrlcrred with. Tbe right of suffrage was not taken from the negroes. No office noioer was turnea out ; the right ot no man, or class ot men, was taken away. More power was given to the people than they ever naa ueiore ; tne gov- ernmcut is made to conform to their inter ests ; useless offices are abolished ; the expen ses of the iudiciarv department and of tbe lctri9luture are cut down a great deal, ana ine administration of justice iu advanced by put ting it in the power of the legislature to have special courts iu those counties where per sons charged with crime now have to remain in prison many mouths awaitiug an opportu nity for trial. On the whole, wc submit to th eiadid consideration of the people of Noitli Caroli na, whether there is anything in thes- amend ments at ali objectionable, and whether, od the other baud, their adoption uiid ratifica tion will not promote the best interests of tbe people aud add to the prosperty of the state. , NEW ADVERTISMENTS.

Is it not a s noiesomo regulation ? and is it not wise to place in"the fundamental law of the state cnVi ft trrtvisimi to ward off anv danger that miht other-wise come j from secret political societies? Let i us reinemher that Gen. Washington warned us against them. The 2d amendment is germain to the first; hy it the practice of carry ing concealed weapons is condemned. By the constitution all men are al lowed to U'ar arms; this is the right of freemen. But concealed weapons are the instruments wherewith mur derers and cowards wrealc their ven geance. The law should prohibit the tract ice. NEGItO EQTJALITY. In the same class may be included the 20th and 3Uth amendments; of these the former prohibits the inter mingling of the races at schools, while the latter forbids intermarriage between the negroes and the whites. These are rendered necessary because of the agressive spirit of the northern fanatics who are always interfering with what does not concern them, and who have already declared for civil rights, for social equality and for mixed sehools. The social equality and mixed school platform received manv thousand votes at the election here in 1874. It is proposed to put an end to the discussion of those sub jects by making these amendments to the constitution. Let there bo no party m North Caro lina favoring the mixture of the races. The wav to stop forever the discussion of such subiects on the hustings is to put it in the constitu tion that there shall be no mixed schools, and no marriages between the whites and the negroes. The convention has done its part by pro- osing the amendments; now let the people ratify their work. A vote agamst the amendments is a vote to leave thcie questions open for the radicals to agitate, until finally they may bring about the very evils we wish to guard against. Down with the mixed schools and social equality. PENITENTIARY. The 28th amendment is of great importance also. It provides that convicts may be employed at labor on public works, highways, etc., except such as convicted of great crimes. This commends itself to the judgment of every one. The legislature has already used a part of tho convicts that way, but it has been suggested that such employment was uncon stitutional and unlawful, therefore it is proposed to insert this provision to remove the doubt. As this means the state w ill get the full benefit of the convict labor, and the expense of finding and entertaining so many colored gentlemen of elesract leisure at tb.9 penitentiary will bo avoided, The penitentiary has proven great burden to the tax-payors. Wo Lave already expended neac a mll-lk-it f dollars upon it and to fnd the convict3. Jjet us now maiie tne conviots usolnl. i-et them earn taur bread and meat. Thev arc geneiallv persons who have sought to live by stealing. Let them in luture be put to work, and thus benefit tho stato instead of being a burden to tho honest people of North Carolina. 1 many eri uhn the AFVOINTMENT TO CI-'l ICE. As snction 10 of article -1 oi constitution now htt;nd, tho governor has the power oi' appointing to all oiSco3 hereafter creared. io alter this and to let tho leg any tucii onico elective u iuo yrvyiu, it is proposed to amend that sectton so that the governor may apoiat to all offices established by tho consti tution, the mode of filling which is not otherwise provided for. This is a curtailment iu some degreo of the governor's power and patronage; but it is power and patronage wnicn ouijht never to nave given mm. uei the people elect at the polls. TUT? jrWCIAKI. By the proposed amendments con siderable changes are made in the judiciary department of the state government, ihese changes are noi of great moment as aifectiug the sub stantial rights of the people; but they rather fall, as a whole, under the second class into which we have for the purpose of this consideration di vided the amendments. That is, they are matters of regulation and con venience, which experience and pru dent foresight require us to adopt There is no great principle involved, only convenience. In the first place the supreme court judges are, after tho election in 1878, to be reduced to three; their number now is five. We had before the war only three. That number was found to be sufficient then. The business of the court is not very great, and three judges now will answer every purpose. By this chango we will save 5,000 a year cf tho people's money. 2. Tho general assembly may pro Tide that the court may hold sessions elsewhere than at Kaleigh. This might become necessary in case of an epidemic at Kaleigh, or for other reasons. 3. The supreme court is given back to it ali the jurisdiction it had before the war. A part of its power was taken from it bv the constitu tion of 180c?. This is now corrected These changes are affected by tho 12th. 13th aud 14th amendments. By tho 15th the Btate is to be di vided into nine iudicial distric's; and tho terms of the superior court shall be held for such a time as may be nrescribed bv law. At present the constitution requires a two weeks' term in every county. By this amend ment, small counties may have but ono week's term. Larger one3 may have longer terms, as the business ot the people requires. It is also pro vided, that the number of the districts may be altered. ROTATION OF JUDO KS. Tho lULli arar-iiilinent provides that every judae shall reside in tha district for which be is elected : but iudses are required to rotate from one district to another. That U the iudaca shall not ride the same circuit in succession. ,One term of tho couv the people will have one j:idge and the nex term thev will have another, ihia was the practice before the war: it. gave areat salis faction.

So that the legislature cannot deprive the courts of their power, for the legislative de partment is separate and distinct from the judiciary department. And furthermore, the legislatuie cannot interfere with the supreme court at all, for that is tbe highest of all courts. But the people, through their representa ttves, may say what cases snau be tried in tho superior courts and what shall be tried in any other inferior courts, if any be estab lished. But the supreme court cannot be touched at all. REMOVAL OP JUDGES. lhe22J amendment provides tht any judge of a court may be removed from of lice bv a two-thirds vote of the legislature for mental or physical inhability to attend to his dunes. But such judge shall have '20 days notice of the proposed action. Clerks of courts also may be removed by tbe judges of the court for mental or physical inability to attend to his duties. But such judge shall have 20 days notice of the proposed action. Clerks of courts also may be re moved by tbe judges of tlte court for ment al or physical inability. By the 23d amendment it is provided that no office shall be vacated by the adoption of these amendments. That is, the courts shall continue as they are until the changes can be effected, and the reduction be made ia the number of judges without depriving any man of his rights. No man is to b turned out oi office by the adoption of these amendments. JUDGES ELECTED BY TUB PEOPLE, The 18th amendment provides that all of the supreme and superior com t judges shall be elected by tbepeople of the ttale at large. This is expedient since the judges are now required to lotave and are no longer corfin e.i to the district for wlni-.h they arj,ejjJclwj it anas 10 ice poii.icai po t au,i im.,or.

LEGISLATIVE DEPARTMENT. V.'ith regard to the legislative some very important changes are made : It is provided that the legislature shall meet every other year on the first Monday in January, this being a more convenient time for assembling thau November, as the constitution now providos. Also that the terms of the members shall begin when they are elected ; this is not definitely stated in the constitution, ana that they snail not get COrr'.-. -.!' ha' w a y GEO. S.

Tbe 10 cents mileage, it is thought, will about pay actual travtding expenses, meals, etc., wbile on the route, and the $4 per day is just one-naif what the radicals charged in 18G8-'70. 60 days is long enough for a session aud no pay is ?iven alter that time. Tbe effect of this amendment will be to reduce the expenses very materially, as the followiua statement shows : ThA radical leflislature of 1868 ta 1870 cost $ 400,680 The democratic legislature of 1870 to 1872 cost 161,500 The democratic legislature of 1872 to 1874 cost 129,000 The cost of the legwlature under the amendments can be no more than 41,000 for per diem. The saving which will be made to the people 01 .North Carolina ty tne adoption of this amendment is plainly seen from the above. Amendments 4, 6 and 6 are intended mere ly to cut out of the constitution immaterial matter wh;ch is of no consequence now, as it relates only to elections already held, tnd is now without any force or enect whatever. It is dead matter which ought to be stricken from the constitution, but does neither harm nor good by being there. AGRICULTURB. Thorc are only two other amendments to be considered. The first of these requires that the legislature shall provide lor a depart ment of agriculture &c, for the purpose of promoting the agricultural interests 01 the siate, and shiill also pass laws to encourage sbeephusbandry. II this is doue, and a de partment of agriculture be established under proper regulations, the agricultural interests Vn.tV, i .il!nn mill .n viutitlir lian aft 1 1 rA Agriculture is the wealth of the state ; every thing else depends upon it.

FREE SCHOOLS. The 27th avnendment req-jires that the school fund, consisting of items therein enu merated, the same which now constitutes tbe school fund, shall be faithfully applied to the purpose of keeping up free public schoo Is and that the county school tunds, the estrays, lines, penalties, Ac,, collected in each county, sLai! beloug to the school l'uud of that coun ty. So that if a patriotic resident of Edgecombe county wishes to make a donation to the puD iie school fund, in Edgecombe county, he can do it. As the law now is there is 110 county school fund separate from the state school fund. COMCLUSIOB. We have now rapidly gone over all the amendments proposed Ijy the late constitu tional convention, When we read them cnrtfully we tiud that they are all calculated to promote the interests of the people, and we fail to stv-111 them anything otijectionablc. The contrast between these amendments and what the republicans predicted they would he, is astonishing. In the first place, the republican politicians falsely allegod that the convention would not consider itself bound by the restriction up on its power, but would abolish the home stead ; would take away the right of suffeage uvai t-o negroes ; would turn out Uie en- -I Ji 1 111 VI Tarboro, 4 FULL LINE OF ing, Parlor & Office Stoves, kept constantly on hand, which will be 60ld at the lowest cash prices.
