The X EIV York Constitutional
The election for members to a constitu
tional convention for the State of New
York came off in that Stateon Tuesday of
last week and resulted in the choice of a
majority of Republicans. According to
the returns the political complexion of
the convention will be as follows:
Democrats. Republicans.
Delegates at large, 16 16
District delegates, 44 84
The " reaction" which copperheails so
confidently predicted had commenced in j
Connecticut, has riot extended as yet he- |
yond the limits of the land of wooden ;
nutmegs, but according to the above has j
rather retrograded, as the Republicans
succeeded far beyond their expectations.
Sonic Difference.
A republican mass meeting was held at
Beaufort, South Carolina, oti the loth
April, at which B. H. Cleaves, a colored :
man, presided, delivering an eloquent ad
dress from which we quote the following
paragraph :
"We rejoice to know that the Great j"
Architect of the universe, the great Jeho- j
vah. in his divine wisdom, put it into the
hearts of a majority of the American peo
ple to elect a man of true republican prin
ciples as chief magistrate of the nation,
who iu good time proclaimed all men free
throughout the whole country. And to
day, the loth of April. 1867, is the second
anniversary of the death ofthat good man,
our much lamented President Abraham
Lincoln, a name that will ever be held
sacred by all true lovers of Liberty. Yes!
my friends, lie died a martyr for the cause
of freedom. We will therefore prove our
selves worthy by using all honorable
means to preserve the Union upon the
fundamental principle of the Declaration !
of Independence, which declares that all I
men are created equal."
It is somewhat remarkable that in all
the speeches and proceedings of the black
man South a deep reverence for the Crea- i
tor pervades every movement, while the
sound sense and often eloquent language 1
of the degraded raee awaken astonish ment, j
not, only among northern men but even
with those who but lately regarded the !
colored man sis a brute. In strange con
trast with this and hundreds of other
speeches made by freedmen, is the follow- !
ing from the Memphis Appeal, edited by ,
Albert Pike, a white rebel, who incited
the Indians to rise against the whites
during the rebellion, afterwards pardoned
by Andrew Johnson, and now spitting
forth the demoniac venom of a fiend. In
an article on the North, he says:
"Bankruptcy, foreign war, internal ha
treds, a hell of fire thinly crusted over
new dissensions, separations, strifes, new
rivers of blood, repeated decimations', new
lightnings of the red deserved wrath of
God, the corroding stains of innocent
blood upon the soul, the insensible horrid
lajise into the most hideous of despotisms,
all the Dantesque horrors of the infernal
regions that the shades of dead nations,
tortured inhabit—all these stare upon
them out of the grim silent darkness of
the future days."
What Christian man, what honest or
decent white man, would for a moment
hesitate to prefer the black to the white
man in this case? Yet we have men in
this county, in this town, who would not
hesitate to take the Indian scalper by the
hand and feel honored in walking by his
and at the same time shriek out
" wqjiicr" at the humble Gleaves.

the annual parade of the tire department
took place in Charleston, 011 the2Btli iiist.,

110 American flag in the procession—a bit
of negative treason which was promptly
corrected by on order from Gen. Sickles
that there should be 110 further advance

Of the almost innumerable number

EgL/rhere is no reason whatever why
grain and flour should be at the enormous
prices they are. The control of the mar

By this means the poor and middling

Fairs are now very popular in the
South', as a source of raising means with
which to furnish material to decorate the

same time the people of the North are
asked to contribute funds to feed the
starving vagabonds who became outlaws
with the discharge of the rebel armies.

the rejiorts of the colored mass meetings
throughout the South, that they always

political meetings, and we fear will wound
the feelings and offend the conservative

Fields of Dock. —The root of yellow
dock, so troublesome to farmers, is an ef
fectual alterative and a most valuable med
icine. In the neighborhood of Lowell,
Dr. J. C. Aver & Co. have planted fields
of it, where they raise many tons at a crop.
It is grown like the carrot or beet, in drills,
and its quality or properties have been
much improved by cultivation. It is one
of the ingredients in Ayer's Sarsapariila,
and, we are informed, the extraordinary
virtues of this preparation are largely due
to the extract of this root that it contains.
The Sarsapariila root, used by this firm,
is grown 011 plantations of their own, in
Honduras, to secure an article of superior
and wholly reliable quality. One of the
reasons for the universally acknowledged
superiority of their medicines, may be
seen in the watchful care that is used in
preparing them. — Vermont Statesman.

A YOUNG LADY returning to her
country home, after a sojourn of a few months In the city,
was hardly recognized by her friends. In place of a coarse
rustic, tin:bed face, she had a soft ruby complexion of al
most marble smoothness, and instead of twenty-three she
really appeared but eighteen. Upon Inquiry as to the cause
of so great a change, she plainly told them she used the
CAIICASSIAN BALM, and considered it an invaluable ac
quisition to any Lady's toilet. By its use any Lady or
Gentleman can improve their personal appearance an
hundred fold. It is simple in its combination,as Nature
herself is simple, yet unsurpassed in its efficacy in drawing

Jiivcnilc Tragedy.
A Little Son of Judge Reeves Fatally
Shot in a Quarrel with a Playmate.
We have received information of a dis
tressing affair which occurred at Somer
ville, Fayette county, 011 Saturday even
ing last. A difficulty occurred between
a little son of Judge Reeves, of the Cir
cuit Court, eleven years old, and another
lad about the same age, son of Dewitt
Moseby. Young Reeves caught Moseby
by the collar with the left hand and was
about striking him with the right, when
the latter drew a revolver, and placing it
against Arthur's breast, fired. The ball
passed through the breast, and it is sup
posed through the heart, lodging under
the skin in the back. He fell imme
diately, exclaiming, "I am shot!" and
died within a few minutes.
Young Moseby was arrested and had a
hearing yesterday before Judges Cox,
Tucker and George. A boy named James
Bell, about twelve years of age, who was
in company with the two boys at the time
of the occurrence, was the only witness.
After the examination, young Moseby
was bound over in the sum of two thou
sand dollars, for trial at the Circuit Court.
Young Reeves is represented to have been
an unusual bright boy. Both families are
plunged into profound sorrow by the oc
currence. When will parents learn to
discountenance the carrying of deadly
weapons by their children. — Memphis
