tfiMawmwIPVMATE. THURSDAY, MABCU ~28?1867 Mass Convention. A Coorerrelure Mom Convention for Carroll County, will be held at the Court R<nue, Westminster, Md., at 11 o’clock A. M., on Tatidap the 2*f of April, 1807, for the purpose of nomina ting Six Oolrgotet to represent Carrol! County iu the proposed Slat* Conven tion to change the present Constitution of the State of Maryland; and to be Toted for at the KUction ordered by the Legislature to be held in this Stale ou WedmetJap tie 10M c lay of April 1867. A general attendance is earnestly de sired at the County Convention. At the time is short all friends of the cause are also urged to act promptly in ragard to Iho registration of voters, and their attendance at the polls. “The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance.’' THE PEOPLE. the lourntTiaxtl. to.v- TEirriox. We preferred to aee tho Coarentiun project paetponed for the present, only because wo believed we could afford to wait for more propitious times, and did not desire to tempt the Radicals to try tho dangerous schemes they are threat ening. The Legislature, however, ha| thought proper to paM the bill, and nothing remains for us to do but tx stand up to the cause, and put it through' if we can without respect to oonse •piuuoea. Whatever difference of opin ion any have existed among us as to tho policy of tho movement at this time,! we hold that there should be none any \ longer; but that all should sustain it, i not doubting that the Legislature was right. The court.- the Radicals may choose take in thia matter is uncertain. Their State Convention was summoned in hot haste to rwaasable at Baltimore on the 27th inst. What they intend to do we may know in a few days. It will soou be amen whether their threat, nude at tha first meeting of said Convention, to call the negroes of tho State, and Con groaa, to their aid, _was a mere throat to prevent the call of a Convention, or waa neant in sober earnest. We have no doubt the most frantic of their lead ers really desire to do so; and that, if tha leading radicals in Congress can assure them of Congressional interfer ence, they will attempt to carry out their pregnane Mean. F. Thomas. Stevens, Butler, and such like, will doubtless advise them to attempt it; yet there is still some respect fur consisten cy on the pert of many Radicals in Congreaa, which makes us doubt whether they will sgree to force their high hand ed measures on a State that never re belled- They may even doubt the sue- 1 cess of Congressional usurpation iu tho South, so much as nut to attempt the same on a State which they know has never been out of the Union, and could not have lent any rights by the war. Having put our hand to tin plough we cannot look back. We are bound to go forward, ao matter what other i may lay or do. Our people are entitled , to tha right of aalf government, as well as other rights, and are bound to main tain them when assailed. They have put op with the nrbUnry rule of a minority heretofore about as long as they arc willing to stand it; ami it may ha well enough far oar opponents in this State to take that iato considera tion. Wa know that many of them ex press a desire for ao opportunity to be : given to call in foreign aid to suppress : what they call the rebel rule in thia State and establish them once more in 1 power. Perhaps they have not eaten- ' lated tha danger of this move to the whole flouatry. They ehould remember , that tha whole land stands aghast with 1 honor at the monstrous military occn potion scheme of Congreaa which, at a j single blow, strikes down the right of self government in the Booth, and can not ranis silent apaetalon should vio lent means he need to dtprivt tho re flating people of Maryland of the rights which they have heretofore enjoyed.— They should know that Congress is not almighty; (hat it is but one of the branches of government; k that it it not tha source of power, but the were creature of the people, who own aay to it—“thus for abate thou go and ao farther.’’ Per haps that people, even yet, may have virtue rod independence enough left to nip three dangerous usurpations of power is the hud. - ■ If there is aay thing we abominate it ■ civil war, and we would do any thing ooosiateot with honor toavert it Should soother war break out in this fond it *UI ha totally ruined. The powv r of eobenoa willhe lust to the country.— AH the bleed abed, Sod all the debt in curred iu defence of the Union, will have here io rain. Wo value the fu ture fignperity and glory of thia united country too much to wish to see it jeop ardised; but WS heflesrty believe that it aannot endure tiptoes Radicalism and ‘hear extrema doctrines are ipnadily orertßMhi Xt the ballot box, 'WMMnII-rer people, then, to ■relgfctha reWM, and reffemt is L (W?or of the oull for Coovvation—ssr iuttW and honestly rwolved to do what B | may be nsncsMiry to sustain (heir heaven ! born rights. r The larminiatures { The State LogiaUUro adjourned on c ; Saturday afternoon. An unusual amount I| of business has boon transacted. Thu f enfranchisement bill, the constitutional . contention bill, and a new registration I bill, were passed, besides a largo num ber of bi!l> of groat intercut the bill to admit the testimony of ocuroa, the 1 same an white persons, was jtassed in ; the House by a decided majority, but • failed in the Semite on account of the i abseuec of members, some of them ra dicals. This meant re was earnestly ad vocated by some of tho ablest members of the Legislature, and it is much re -1 grot ted that it failed. * Tho amendment to the Constitution 1 of the United States waa rejected by the . House, but not acted ou the Senate. P The bill organising the militia of the State is now a law. Tho bill to submit to the voters of Baltimore tho question of permitting the city car* to run ou Sunday was passed by both House*. , The bill for holding a new municipal , election in Baltimore, passed the House , but was modified io the Senate so as to defeat that object. Tho-ViR to exempt Baltimore city pterion of the general school ; i dke House—the .Senate i MHBo" to the School system al . —so the old law remains uu "VMic bill modifying the stringent Sun day law, which had passed in the House, ( was not reached iu the Senate. (onfUcatlon. j least week Tbsddous Stevens deliver* jod c-written speech in favor of his bill to confiscate rebel lands in tho South, and parcel them out to the Freed men.; 40 acre* each, and to raise a fund of $500,000,000 to pay pensions and to reimburse citizen* for damage done by the confederates—including his Iron work* of course. It was lamentable to sec an old man trembling on the verge of the grave, and professing to bo too feeble to read his own speech, (having had its reading finished by tho Clerk,) advocating so horrible and vindictive a measure. It is said tb.it it is too strong a dose even for Congress to swallow— but wc shall see. Reglstratlou. As a new registration law has been passed, which requires to be attended to before tho Convention election of the 10th. of April, it behoves .all those who have not been heretofore registered to be ready to attend to it promptly. Wc presume the Governor will attend forth with to the appointment of Registers, who will doubtless be ready to act in a few days, and will notify the public aa soon as possible. V c hart uot seen the law yet —but believe it requires them to sit ten days to correct the Reg istry, and finish tho same three days , previous to tho election. Mo lists arc to be published. Another Veto. The President, last Saturday, vetoed the , supplementary bill, lately passed by Con- j grese to carry into effect their plan of mili ! tary reconstruction of tho Sooth. The J President considers the whole plan a mere mockery of free government, as it deprives j the people of those States of ail volition in j instituting the now governments—the whole object being to foroo negro suffrage upon 1 Stales which under the U. S. Constitution j have the right to determine the suffrage ! question for themselves. The Veto toes- j sage now stands only os another noble pro- j lt against Congrtwaivnal oppression, hav- ; ; ing been immediately overruled by more j than two thirds majority in both Houses. 1 Acre Hampshire Election.
