His occupation is unre ruunerative. If a man is educated at this College, he will carry the influence ot better farming to his neigbors and all will be benefitted. I believe the work of the College is carried on well. I have enough children to fill one end of the building, but I am not able to send them. J plead for the youth of the country. Capt. Ardry, chairman of the commit tee on education, said he loved the poor boys of the State, and therefore favored this institution. I shall vote to increase the tax for public schools, and because we do this is the best, reason for con tinuing tho A. and M. College. We have so many ignorant farmers because WO have had lin rlana in arlrvr - - jv,. mj tiuuin IV New lluiover and Pender counties to learn those higher branches that run-fain to farming.

He showed that almost every other Stato had such colleges. We are crowded in tho College.and we ask $15, 000 a year so as to provide for incoming classes. There is no other college in the State that pretends to do the work that this college is doing. The influence of tho bjys who are educated would have a good effect in lifting up the farmers.

To Amend the Constitution. Section 1, article 10 of Mr. Laity's bill to amend the Constitution io that a man Mv". V.cLutv said that during tho cam-V-x'un ho brought tho question of homo-.-ti.el to tho people and they favored an .un. nihnciit to tho Constitution. Tho homestead law prevents poor men from having good credit. A m m unuer mort- g.e lives in oonuago. My peuj.no aut to be tree. Poor men's stock and farms aro hold under hammer; and if tho home stead law should b3 abolished it would :ivo every man a chance. As long as tii.: homestead law remains the poor u en will bo bowers of wood and drawers of water. , Mr. Grcon, of Harnett, believed the homestead law had been a good one, and was a protection to tho poor men oi me stato. Through sickness and misfortune good men have been helped by it. But k has worked a hardship on tho people. It U tho father of tho mortgage system. It prejudices men who have to ive a bond. Though it has done good -when it was iirt enacted, it is not of use or v ilue to us now. It was a good law i ot after the war, and caved some good t::e:i. But it has dono moio to destroy . Mid.-ncc between man and man than a. :v other measure. At j uluai"r belike it can be reduced to $50. or a year. .North Carolina will never reach the highest plane of usefulness until its citizenship is educated. Mr. Turner said the finances of the State wero in a peculiar condition. The drummer tas (80,000) and the fertilizer tar, $10,000; have been cut off. We are dependent uon a direct tax.

(At this juncture there seemed much inattention and considerable talk ing on the iloor, iu the lobbies and the galleries, and Mr. Turner stopped in i his sneech and demanded order and at tention.) Raleigh, said he, is supposed to bo a city of refinement and illiberal ly. I have noticed that members on this floor havo never been able to get at tention when they oppose appropriations for au institution located at Raleigh. My people oppose this appropriation, and if wo increase as contemplated we will be compelled to increao taxation to 30 cents on tho $100 worth of property. We will leave no margin for the counties, and the next Legislature will have to levy special taxes.

Mr. Ray Tells the Truth. Mr. Ray said that he had not intended to say anything, but when a man assumes the role of honesty when he knew that it was something else that moved him ia this matter, he would have to say a word. It is not honesty, ir is just sim ply cheek; capital for campaign thunder underlying it all. He gave a" full expla nation of the affair, and and unanswerable defense of Speaker Doughton. The motion came up to reconsider, and it was moved to lay it on the tab e. The gentleman from Madison will agree that it was not debatable. But he kept on debating. -The Speaker decided that he was out of order. That is all there was of it, and it ought not to be attemptsd to make a mountain out of a mole hill. There has been a great deal cf clamor worked up about tbis matter and he for one was tired of it. It is said that the people of North Carolina have been sending in petition after petition protest mg against this matter when there is not a word of it so. The people of North Carolina haVe not protested against, the action of the committee, who are com posed of some of the best men in North Carolina the peers of any men in North Carolina in any profession, referring to Messrs. McGill, of Cumberland; Hol man, of Iredell, and Hall, of Halifax, who constitute the House branch of the committee. They gave a full hear ing to all parties, made their report, ana tn8 only complaint heard such as has been manmactured. plausel. Now as to letting the public printing out to tho lowest bidder, the people are satisfied that it is not to their interest. It would soon fall into irresponsible hands if such were done. The only grounds of the protest against tho action and ia favor of letting the printing to the lowest bidder, is nothing but the dictum, the bare saying of persons who are personally interested in this mat ter, and who are trying to tear down and weaken the Democratic, oartv in tha He said he understood that the looking for a war, and was forever mut tering to himself "Umslcpcgass smells blood." That was the1 total of his vocabulary. Mr. Pritchard watches LUC . U I JL1 or IK Hnnv .,.,. i ,, A.

During Mr. Ray's excellent speech, which was punctuated throughout by applause in the House and in the galle ries, (and of which the above is a very meagre report,)he stated that Mr.Pritch ard had misrepresented the action of Speaker Doughton he would not say it was wilful but it was none the lesa a mis representation. Mr. Pritchard -(beg par don we should call him Umslopogass) said that Mr. Ray had accused him of wilfal misrepresentation, and added very dramatically that he would not al- iuw auy man to say tnat he was guilty of misrepesentation. Mr. Ray repeated What ha had sai-l rrnrA f.-.. . apportion the members oi and to regulate commissioners the House, tees: Mr Lowerv, to validate certain sales of land in Buncombe; Mr. Henry, to secure tho placing of proper fish-wavs in the Dan river: Mr. Brinson, to incorporate Pam lico, Oriental & Western railway;. Bills Passed Second Reading To allow the levy of an assessement in stock law territory in Johnston county; to incorDorate Montezuma, Mitchell county; to amend the charter of the town urged that the letter incorporated not germane. Be contended that it was germane. Mr. Doughton said he had made up his pind the chair should decide on the matter. However, a3 there were som-d allusions to the chair, he would let the theprct repeated! v ruled out order protests winca were improperly worded, and that were not germane to any action of House. Mr. McGill offered an amendment to tho protest of Mr. Pritcnard whion was to strike cut all that was not germane. To this, before it was read, Air. rntcn- ard objected. Mr. Jones' Strong Argument. Mr. Jones said that the Speak- er was ngnt as to ms puwei, uui thp-t he had put the matter into the tor the btate. extent ot tho petitions from the people that have come up from the cloud cap ped mountains to the wave washed shore, signed by a numerous multitude of men who boseeched the legislature to recon- uivfu cnt u iu.kzii. utiLUK.a Lait U ULL BlUCe the truth has been found out. Many of fthQriRho aten.x! the petitions are Re- has ooea raiseu by tnosv who, n done the State printing at tne ngures now i.;ald, are sm-irting under defeat and ia their disappointment are .willing to stab the party and the best interests cf the DGOole. And not only so, but these parsers persistently attack the Demo cra.tio members of the General Assembly and seek to out them in a false light be fore tho people. Any declaration to tho effect that any member of the L.egisla ture was trying to cover up his tracks was a slander upon the Legislature, and was intended to deceive tne pcopte. In re f .... Jir. intcnrru accented his starnAnt a satisfactory. He was tragical without excuse, for Mr. Ray had not intimated that he had been guilty of wilful mis representation. Jlr. McCilPs Statement. Mr. McGill said, on behalf of the com mittee on printing, that it had given great care to the matter of its award. As to the petitions there were only fourteen, with only 357 signatures. As to tho statement that the public printer re ceived 4,000 bonus, he was authorised to say on the part of three as reputable men as there ire in Raleigh that this was not true. The fact was that except when the Colonial Records were printed the net profits of the State Printer did not exceed $1,800. Ia conclusion Mr. Mc Gill called the previous question, but at the request of Speaker Doughton with drew it so that Mr. Pritchard ceuld mako some remarks. Mr. Pritchard's Retraction. Mr. Pritchard said he desired to make a statement. He said that on yesterday when the motion to lay his bill on tho table was before the House he voted in the affirmative in order that he might have the right to reconsider. He mado the motion to reconsider, but the gen tleman from Cumberland, Mr. McGill, movel to lay it on the table. Tho Speaker sustained the motion and rulecl that I had no right to discuss this ques tion. This was a completo retraction of what Mr. Pritchard had iu his protest, and he thus publicly admitted all claimed by tho Speaker, Mr. Jones and Mr. Raj-. Mr. McGill then renewed his call for the previous question. This was sus tained. Mr, McGill's amendment, strik ing out; reflected last all of the protest that - upon Speaker Doughton I JL ClfcU JVV - ' O fcl..
