-Removal of Disabilities – We have before us the bill passed by the House of Representatives, “To relieve certain citizens of North Carolina of disabilities,” and now awaiting action upon it by the Senate, and find all the counties in the State represented in it except twelve; these are Anson, Caswell, Cabarrus, Clay, Gates, Hertford, Jones, Mitchell, Onslow, Tyrrell, Wautauga (sic), and Yancey.

Stanly county—Joseph MARSHALL, James E. MALDEN, Dumas COGGINS, Daniel RICHEY, Lafayette GREEN, Allen BURRIS, Franklin A. LAFTON and John A. MORTON.
