A convention of the northern rcttlers
of North Carolina haa b en called to
meet in Raleigh on the 13th day of May.
The convention bold in 1SSG was largely
attended by northern born citizens hv
lag in other Southern States as well
as in North Carolina. It was also at
tended in gratifying numbers by rep
Tentative men from the Northern
State:', and by a very considerable nurn

ber of northern editor, chii lly from Ntw
Lnglaud and Pennsylvania. I no other
good was accomplished, the evidence
given by Northern dwellers among us
given before the convention, carried with-
it a weight of testimony that car
ried conviction to every new North
em hearer. IIo might disregard our
statement of condition?; be could not
disregard tho experience of his own sec
tional friends. Facts were enforced
with such proof of their solidity that it
prejudices were not at onco overeom?,
apprehensions were ppeedily dissipated.
Men from tho North visiting the South
for the first time saw with their own
eyes that their countrymen who had
preceded them had suivived all the
perils of a hostile baibirou society, had
survived all the deadly ii tltunces of a
semi-tropic il c. invite; had not only sur
vived b;it prcapvred; had not only lived
free from the hostility of the Scu heru
people, but hud become tlosdy iiidi uni
fied with them, aud to all intents and
purposes had become gemine South
erners. What wa.3 lnrnod by tho visitors and
delegates to tha former Convcnti ) 1 is
nought to bo enlarged in the nssctnblug-
of a now ono. The first was an uutrid
experiment made, with a certain degtoo
of timidity. Tho confidence acquired
then by tho real aud just presenta
tion of Houthe.ru conditions will embol
den the attendance of a very much
larger number in the second. Each of
such measures is an assault upon ignor
ance and prejudice. L;ght is let in
gradually, and in time the walls of
sectionalism will crumble to the

Posseshing in such an eminent degree

behooves the Chronicle to express its
great pleasure at such a statement and
enjoin upon every one, who is in search
of an invigorating social and intellectual
atmosphere, to take a peep at Charlotte
before goiuc ekewhere.
Proverbial for her broad hospitality
and high social attainments, old Meck
lenburg is viewed far and near as an ed
ucational ceutie, and her people as lov
ers of the t recious waters that bubble
from the Pierian Spring.
Standing out in bold relief as the
pillar to tho intellectual structure here is
Charlotte's Successful Graded JSchcol.
Nothing rul3 so near tho great heart
of a community as tho institution which
lavs for its masses of children their edu
cational foundation. Nothing has greater
p"wer to mould the sentimeni cf the ris
ing generation. Acting with this view,
the Board of Directors have placed at its
head Superintendent Alexander Graham,
a middle aged, scholarly gtntleman pos
sess ,ig rare mental gifts, and enthusias
tic in his great work.
