ies of Governor till President Johnson, on June 17, in harmony with his amnesty proclamation of May 29, 1865, appointed A. J. Hamilton provisional Governor. Hamilton was empowered by the President to call a Constitutional convention, the delegates to which were to be elected, under certain prescribed qualifications, for the purpose of organizing the political affairs of the State, the Governor to be guided by instructions similar to those given the provisional Governor of North Carolina (W. W. Holden), when appointed in May. The convening of this body gave rise to much dissatisfaction among the people of Texas. They had assumed that affairs were to go on as of old, and that the reintegration of the State was to take place under the administration of Governor Murray, who, meanwhile, had taken it upon himself, together with the Legislature, to authorize the election of delegates to a State Convention, without restriction as to who should be entitled to vote. Thus encouraged, the

new constitution which was ratified by the people in April. It was approved by Congress, and North Carolina was declared, in June, to be entitled to representation in that body. On July 11 the President proclaimed that North Carolina had resumed its place in the Union. The Fifteenth Amendment to the national Constitution was ratified March 4, 1869, by a large majority. During that year and the next the State was much disturbed by the outrages committed by the Ku-Klux Klan (q. v.). Governor Holden declared martial law in two counties; and for this articles of impeachment were preferred against him, and he was removed from office.

gh the strenuous efforts of Judge S. J. Person, W. W. Avery, and Victor C. Barringer, all again University men, the Assembly of North Carolina passed an act providing for the calling of a convention. The election was on the 28th of February. In Holden's paper, The Standard, of the 20th of March, the official figures are given as 467 against a convention. Add to this 194 majority from Davie, which arrived too late to be put into the official returns, and we find a majority of 661 against a cto one of her sons, Colonel Walter L. Steele, the assistant secretaryship to another, Leonidas C. Edwards, and she had more than her share of the ability of the convention. After we except the names of Judge Badger, Judge Ruffin, Judge Biggs. W. W. Holden, Kenneth Rayner, Governor Reid, E. J. Warren, and a few others, it will be seen that most of the leaders were University men. When the convention came, on the 18th of June, to choose Senators and Representatives from North Carolina to the P
Personal Rencontre. --W. W. Holden, of the Raleigh (N. C.) Standard, assaulted John Spelman, of the State Journal, in that city, Wednesday, in front of the Yarborough Hotel. Mr. Holden inflicted several severe wounds with a cane, when Mr. Spelman drew a pistol and fired three times at his assailant, but did no damage. The parties were then separated by the interference of friends. The cause of the quarrel was personalities in their respective newspapers. Personal Rencontre. --W. W. Holden, of the Raleigh (N. C.)

A Sensible View of the "Code of Honor." John W. Syme, senior proprietor of the Raleigh (N. C.) Register, having challenged W. W. Holden, also of Raleigh, to mortal combat received the following sensible reply: "I beg leave to say that I do not approve of or practice the code of the duelist. I regard it as barbarous and unchristian. If I wrong a man I will right him and do him justice, if convinced that I have thus wronged him; but if a man wrongs me as you have done in your paper of to-day. I will defend myself and characterize the wrong, and will stand in my place, responsible for such 'satisfaction' as it may be in his power to obtain. I do not fear you or any one else, nor do I, when I know I am right, fear that 'public opinion' which sustains the code of the duelist. Your obedient servant. You are at liberty to publish this letter if you choose." John W. Syme"

Letcher, his Aids, the Hon. Jeremiah Morton and Hon. H. A. Edmundson, and the Governor has now no reason to believe that he has been imposed upon. I am, very respectfully, Your obedient , S. Bassett French, Aid-de-Camp to Gov. of Va. W. W. Holden, Esq., Ed. R. Standard. I certify this to be a true copy of a letter from me to Mr. Halden, written by direction of Gov. Letcher. S.
