tin- C i-iw-iition cause is steadily
gsiairg ,c;iounl. Tue necessity fr
ufi.nie in the organic law ia ml
niitted on all sides ; and the recent
elections in the north will do much
to allay the fears of those v.ho,
while favoring a change in the Co:i
stit'ition, are yet opposed to a call
for a Convention at the present
time. If the elections to be held
in November result m favorably a
xre have every rezson to believe,
the cause will be still further
strengthened. Let the friends of
Convention, then, continue to gi
tate the question. Keep it con
stantly before the members of the
Legislature. Let them be impreis
ed with the necessity of affording ua
a government in which the white
people of Eastern North Carolina
may have some voice. Activity
and nerseverance must secure the
support of the Democratic members
It cannot be deuicd that the great
mass of the party earnestly desire
a Convention, and it is only neces-1

The more intelligent people of
the North have at last, become sens
sible of the imposition-toil! has been
practiced upon them byjnhjjrincipled
party leaders, and are not so apt to
be caught by them as they were a
year or two ago. They begin to
realize too somewhat the character
of Southern loyalists from whom
the information was derived, and
are sending men whom they can
trust to ascertain the facts, which
are generally found to be at great
variance v!ni the reports put in

along unfrequented roads and has
been iu all the large cities and not
only failed to discover any trace of
the reign of terror, but found the

no reipn of terror in Alabama; no
war of racts, and no pretence that the
recent crimes in that State have
been instigated by political motives.
He found the alleged murderers of
Mr. Billings to be men unlike the
bloodthirsty ruffians they have been
painted, and he appears to think
the so-called evidence against them
is ridicuLuily inadequate.
The N. Y. Tribune also contains
a very interesting article touching
this subject from which we take the

Diab Bias : I think it would be
well for the people of North Caroliaa
to hay a Constitution established by
themselves, free from the supervision
or control of others, both as a mat-
Jter of seatiaeat and fact.
But iadepeadeBt of this, our pres-
ai waniiuuiM ia uum7

pla of liberty."
The general ambiguity of the in
strutaeat; the aneertainty of the
terms of offlce, and the resultant em
barrassment to the administration of
justice, if the late opinion of the At

terms be correct the establishment
of all tha courts, thereby restraining
the discretionary power of creating
and ' modifying court to meet the
varying wants and interests of the
people the limitation of jurisdictions

and increasing the expense and un

THE CAUSE OF THE HJLKD TIMES.
A northern paper says that th question
bow most frequently hard in Maw York,
Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, &C, is
what i th matter with trade ?" This
question, say thw Lyncbbur News, is not
proposed by th great merchants of tbe
Northern cities, for they know th cause.
They know it better than Congress knows
it. They know it better than Cabinet rain
Utei or erao editor know it. Collectors
and drummers, tb teportorial correspon
dent of th great merchants, never n.ake
errors in their reports. Tby work with the
certainty that purely business habit bestow.
Ask them what is tbe matter with trade, and
they will tell you in a stogie sentence. Tbat
sentence is " No money at the South no
property worth a rush in tb 8onth." That's
wbat is tbe matter with trade. Tbere is no
colltctinx mcuey in the Sonth, there is
do selliuj anything there ; and if he venture
North, th Southerner ia now sure that with
out buying a slot.1 bill of foods be can find
credit mouth to pay his bill at tbe St. Nich
olas and purchase a return ticket.
Southern paper is disappearing from the
discount mart. Representing nothing of
present value, it is no longer offered as a
medium of trad exchange.
For a Urn it was believed that this utter
prostration of things in th South was con
fined chiefly to South Carolina and Louisi
ana, Would it were! 3ut the truth is, it
is th case ia every State, Wherever under
the name of "Republican party, and loyally,
and right to tbe negro, tc, etc.," tbe ad
venturous carpet-bagger has ruled or now
rules, thr tb same exhaustion is. It
star hopelessly from tb blaak windows of
th teoantlesi shop of Montgomery and
Mobile, as from those tbat line the once
busy sidewalks of Meeting and St. Charles
streets in Charlstn.
In th city of Meet! to-day, oa of tbe
largest hotels is offered rent free to any on
who will pay the taxes. Along Commerce
street tb store that rented for twelve hun
dred a year are now vainly offered for four
hundred. No basins squar is unorna
mented with th notice "To Let Cheap 1"
Alas they are all dear at any price just now.
Without goods, or mouey, or th credit to
procure goods, of what avail ia the store at
any rentt With goods and store and all,
what avail th possession when nobody has
any money to boy withal? Tbe people are
just as poor in Alabama as in Louisiana, and
if w except Sheloy county, they are just as
poor in Tennessee. This ,U no fancy pic
ture. It comes from oo party reports. Tb
conditio of Alabama is detailed at length
In the New York Times, a Republican paper
which, until very lately applauded, or de
fended, orxcusd every one of those acts
by tbe governing party the acts which
have led to tbe desolation itself aow mourns.
It mourns over the Sooth now, cot because
of the South, but because of tbe North,
to whom the price of the cotton th -ugar,
and of the turpentine comes not in exchange
for goods dry, or bard, or liquid.
All this is the work of the carpet-baggers.
Wherever they go, these political locusts
turn the garden into a wilderness. But
where did they come from 1 The North.
In tbe Bible tbe locusts are spoken of under
the figurative name of "the Northern Army."
That is their literal description here. If the
North is beginning to reap the fruit of their
doiucs, sbe has only bervlf to blame that
ghp did not crush them oiit long ago,

says a telegram to the New York

in the Legislature, viz.: five seats in

Beyond thia there are no more elec

Work on the plantations in some
parts ot Louisiana has been almost

The Daily Graphic thinks that the
best way to get at the truth about

large dailies f New York to club

Southern States, and the journals
aforesaid to publish their report ver

such a commissian Charles O'Conor

gentlemen would be entirely accepta
