RECONSTRUCTION. Progress of Radicalism in the South. The Loyal Doings of Beoonstniotad Eehels. Old Pro-Slavery Prejudices Groiag Under. Great Mass Meetings of White and Colored Loyalists at Raleigh, Charleston, and Mont gomery. Platform of the Republican Party in North Carolina, Proceedings cf tlte itepnbllcon State CoDveot.on or North Carolina—its Organization and Platform. At the Convention which met at Raleigh March 27, and adjourned on the 23th, were 100 while and 50 colored delegates, repre senting 5G counties. Absolutely no distinc tion was made in regard to color. The Hon. AUrcd Dockery was chosen temporary chair man, and a committee of eight—tour of each race —appointed lo report’ permanent offi cers. The Uon. A. H. Jones was elected President, and O. P-Hadly and Colonel D. Heaton, white, and G. N. Harris andJ. R. Poode, colored, Vice-Presidents. N. J. llenneuger, white, and .1. E. O’Hara, col ored, were elected Secretaries. A commit tee of twenty was appointed to draft resolu tions, Ln which each race had ten members. Among the other leading speakers were D. K. Poodloe, \V. W. Holden, D. M. Carter, while, and G. W. Brodie, W. Hood, E. Mil ler and G. S. Lcanv, colored. The only question on which there was any difference of opinion, was the choice of a party name, some of the members advocating the title of Union party, but the great mijority of dele gates believed that the Republican party “saved the country from destruction, and that Its title should be adopted.” The Epcccbes of the colored members were with out exception radical and able. Mr. James Henry Harris, of Wake, who presided over the Convention In the absence of ilr. Jones, said: What is the real object of this Convention, gen tlemen? Why are we here assembled? Not to Cevisc the machlo«j , y of reconstruction, but to In* quire into the best means ol working under me ■supplemental bill which Congi ess has enacted for our benefit. To organise for that purpose is the great object of this convention. Bit just here In terposes the negro question, which has vexed the minds of the most didtiitguUbed statesmen of the nation in times past and the present. For two hundred and fifty Team the negro and white mm lived together as friends—such friends as master and sieve could ivc. Now that t“»e negro is free, all of a sudden the whites and blacks oecome un acquainted with each other. For ihefliet time they do nut know what to do each wltn the other. [Laughter and caceis.] now is this? Why is it that thogfeite man does not know what disposi tion to stake of the negro, or the negro of the white m®,nfter they have lived together In the game country for bo manyyears? Icmtell yon, gentlemen: It is because they become strangers to each oilier. Let us get acquainted once more, end all the difficulties will be removed. [Applause] Bat we have p*cjndices to overcome. Yet one moment's candid reflection would be sufficient to remove such wrong impr« scions so much indulged. Now Ictus look at l«. What has been tbe history ofonr race during the late rebellion! can any nation on earth pm-ett so greed a record? With all tae wrongs and sufferings upon them, with a knowl edge that tbclr Union friends were battling for their freedom, they suid a; I ae homes of their mas ters, who. were absent fighting to keep them In slavery, and protected the defenceless females with a wonderful Cde'ta 1 What other people under the canopy of Heaven would have dons this thing? What nobler exhibitions of self-sacrifice can be furnished in tbe bistory ol mankind ? True to their instincts, they continued ou the farms, tliiiEgtbe soil—ard in doing so. they raised to themselves a monument high a- tbe Heavens and deep as the gnat seal ; Prolonged cheering.] What man can now tolerate unworthy prejudices against onr race? Recently I have travelled la the Northern states and consulted with the first gen tlemen of the nntljn. One thing is fixed: They have determined to reconstruct these States on a thoroughly loyal basis. They have aided me and sent me here to consolidate my people ard organise them. For the colored people are a loyal race. Thcv are iot 100 igno'snt to b- so. Go to aay plstiution, wake up the most stupid negro, and* ai-k him It he loves libcrry, and he will tell you tc.~! [Cheers.] Now co not run the ignorant ticket. 1 tell yon toe negro knows erough to dis tinguish tilenu and foe. The man wuo goes on tbe ignoiant piuttorm will Cirlnmly go down I lAppiause.i The colored people will vote all right—lor they will eland by the Union and its fn-nds. Mr. S. W. Tlond (colored) said: “Let ns unite with the Republican parly. It is the only true pany in the country. It is the champion of liberty; and it has ordained, nnder God. that when this State be readmit ted to tbe Union, her Constitution shall he absolutely pure, wherein the rights of all fchoald be puaraetced.” Geo. W. Brodif, who spoke on the second day. said: “But we have adopted the name cl Republican. I love that name. I have ever been a Rcpvbliciu; and I can tell my white friends that they will love it. too, be fore they get through with n. Continue your course, my friends, and you will suc ceed—for the colored man will stand by. his friends. Let me. however, undeceive my white friends. Toev reg'et the war; we do, also, because of its sufferings; but wc do not regret it as they do, for it brought u» lib erty !

Other resolutions expressed confidence In General Sickles, and General J. 0. Robinson, in command of the Siatc. An Executive Committee of forty members was appointed, of which seventeen were colored. Sub-corn mittees are to he appointed in every county- The Raleigh Standard says: ♦*The while man and colored man met upon tee came floor on the fame footing, and co-opcra’cd together In the most cordial ai.d harmonious man ner.

The fre.-dmon, under the leadership of their radical Blend?, have jield three public meetings within the past two weeks. At these assemblies no one is •-allowed to speak untii they first publicly en dorse the radical platformputloithlhu2lst instant. The consequence Is that as yet no prominent Southern men, as was the ease in Columbia, have come cut In their support. An invitation to Governor Orr to preside at the mass meeting on Tuesday, provide he approved ol the platform, was telegraphed to Columbia. The Governor, In his reply, simply declined the courtesy on account of official business. Thcaltcndance at the meeting has been estimated by impartial judges at between live and mx thousand, including men, women and children. The crowd was very orderly. The following speech, delivered to the fretdmen by General Sickles, on the occasion of the torchlight procession, has enlisted the warmest encomiums of both waites and blacks. The General said; My iriecdf, l thank you I t your visit. Al though unexpected. It Is none the leas gratifying.

[Great applause.] It would be diflient, under the most favorable circumstances, for any race of men to engage, as yon have now to do, in the most Interesting political events, without be ing deeply moved by tin if importance and novel ty. Let me advise yon as a mend, and as one not withor-t experience in public aSairs, to pre serve at at] times the utmost moderation of lan enogc, lemrer and conduct. Avoid everything like violence, impatience or indecorum. Do not give even your adversaries just occasion to com* plain ol the least disrespect shown to them in your discussions, private or public. And beware of those who would endeavor to excite animosi ties between the white and block races. The. protpcrl'v of the South, the welfare of the coun try. are intimately associated with tee harmony and good feeling which should exist between the people of both races and the Sooth. Whs .over seriously impairs the interests of one race must result seriously to the other. Intelligence, col tme, capital, land, are not less essential than labor, ard yet without labor these can have no solid and cndsringfoatidatlon. Yon have already shown your appreciation of these advantages by the eagerness with which yon have employed the opportunities lately given to you to edneate your selves. It will not be long before the white race in the South will see how deeply they are in terested in the education, industry, thrift and progress of ihcir colored population. In this mutual dependence lies the security of all. Abundant time and opportunity wi-1 ho afforded, and ample notice will be given of all the successive steps to be taken in the organ!- lion ol the state Government within my com mand. It will not be necessary, nor can it be otherwise than injurious to yourselves lor you to neglect your regular employment and associa tions to attend to politics! affairs. I promise yon that without any such sacrifices on yonr pan, every man in the Carollnas entitled tu a voice in the decision of the great question to be passed upon under my supervision, shall have a fair chance to act his part without let or hindrance from any one. My friends, I wish yon all good nhrlit. [Enthusiastic cheers.] The General, in conversation with one of the directors of the street cars, advised him to abolish all distinctions as to color of pas sengers, and quietly introduce or give way to what at present appears inevitable, the Eracticc of carrying any orderly, well-he aved person, white or black. Should the question come before him as to the right of the company to eject a colored passenger, be said be would feel bound to decide in favor of the latter. A mass meeting, composed mostly of Northern white men who have taken up their permanent residence here since tbe war, was held last evening. Mr. Joscpl% Hilton, formerly ol New York, ptesldcd.and Mr. J. D. Kavanangb acted as Secretary. The following resolutions were adopted; Be solved. First.

The war horses of the ciiy Democracy met yes tc:dayin solemn conclave in the Recorder's Court room, that sanctum of Penitentiary Justice which has so long been consecrated to their peculiar m>es and needs. They met for the purpose of keeping up their organization, tokeep their forces jroro disbandment, that they may be able to pitch in with hope of success when the Sonlb has ac cepted the term? of Congress, and a lew more Northern Stales have followed the renegade ex ample of Connecticut. In that sign they hone yet to conquer.

No matter what may ho their average condition, It is easy for them to get up, once in three months, an array of details show ing a pctfectly satisfactory state of stairs. But while this provision of the bank law Is deceptive rather than otherwise, as a means of ascertaining the condition ofthe hanks, it causes much incon venience at four periods of the year by producing an irn gular interference with tho course of bank ing operations, and an interruption of business in financial and business circles." The Cincinnati Commercial of yesterday alludes lo thr same subject In this wise: "Adjusting af fairs lor report days is not in accordance wuh the spirit of.the requirements of the law, under which National Banks was organized. Any fixing up to make a good or particular kind of showing is a fiction, and gives no fair reflection of the ave rage business or management of a hank. Bo.llea this, such work always disturbs the current of financial aflalrs. producing a spasmodic action in the money market that may occasion merchants no small amount of inconvenience, it is not likely that this feature of quarterly statements will cease to be manliest as long as they are made, and the business community most, in mak ing tbelr negotiations, calculate a more exact and fair revelation of the condition of the banks, it would be well if the results of in vestigations made by the bank examiners in tbclr casual vltl's should be published. They would then be shown up in tbclr working garb, without any primping (or good looks, or dlstmbance of the relation of the banks to the public. 1 SVo know lbc:c are not a lew who bold that it is none of tho public's business to see or know the situation of the affairs of A hank; .hut If such persons are found among bank officers, they arc precisely tho men whose Institutions should not be trusted with the public confidence." —j he Button Advertiser of Tuesday says: ".he new month ana week open with a com fortably easy condition of the rn’iney market. There fs a steady demand lor money, however, hut the supply of loanable funds at the various hanks and m the bands of private lenders seems to le folly rdcqualc to meet It. Bales still show no chance of consequence, very good paper being otlen.dat<H to 8 per cent. Some choice notes are, however, taken at G to per cent. Call loans on Government securities are emv at six per cent. Tne banks have been busy to-dav pay ing their semi-annual dividends, and as tne amount from interest on bonds, dividends, Ac., which passes into circulation in this viclmtr 4 about this time.'exceeds three millions of dol lars. some relief to tbe money market Is expected from this source. As the quart* rly remind of the hsuksarenow made up, and Congress has ud jonricd, many look for it steady and moderately easy money market for some time to come." laid Money Manet* , April 1.

When he {.Mr. st*-«art) was in Wa bington rcctntly as one of tie del-gates In behalf of the association, Fcrator Morgan meed the fact that New York ‘•had don nothing else for the la*t twenty years but reduce the tolls/* Mr. F replied lo this by Inquiring if the revenue oi the canals had not a’tadiljr I'lCicascd with every reduction, to which Senator M. was compelled to : reply in the affirmative. No Eastern Senators ex cepting Mi.
