RALEIGH; Dec. 15.
Thete have been four balloting! for the
two Judges required' by the new Judiciary
lav, but no ekction is yet made. S. Lowria
and D. Stone stand highest.
The committee to whom the subject was
committed, has, from the small amount of
the subscription, recommerided a repeal of
the law of last session for establishing a State
Lank, and a bill is on its passage for this pur
pose. The friends of the repeal say, that at
the expiration 'of the present charter of the
. Bank of Jhe United States '(Itf'isn) that es
. tabUshment, they hare understood, -will be
put upon a more liberal fooling than at pre
sent; and that .every State will be offtrtd
their proportion of interest in it. If srf, and
. our Legislature nhall accept of the offer, we
may probably have a Branch of that Bank in
This is a distant contingency, and if h
takes effect, whether it would have all the
. good effects which would probably arise from
a liberal State institution, we will not pre
sume to determine.

At the instigation of general Yayou, the
soldiers and islanders of the plains of Cul .de
Sac, stated the urgency cT patting Dessa
lines and Germain to death, in order to pre
serve liberty That the soldiers were willmg
ly disposed to do their duty that the planters
were to watch tlie plains and that moreo

the array. This circumstance reminds us of
a well known sentence, thatLa tyrant has til

, Dessalines being entirely ignorant of all
these facts, and not knowing of our having
possession of Port au Pi'ince, continued on his
route,'inthe most perfect security. At S
in the morning he was in the outer posts of
our camp; without suspecting it only in the
moment when he was to be arrested, he. con
ceived his error, and then trying to make his
escape, he received the mortal blow, which
put an end 10 hii life and his crimes.
Colonel Marcadier was killed, though
much regretted, in defending Dessalines.
On the side of the enemy sonic more were
wounded, and on our wide but one man kil
led. Thus were our proceedings in four days
crowned with the most fortunate success.
This great event, so remaikable in the annals
of the history ol mankind, will shew to the a
stonished orb, what an oppressed people is ca
pable of; and will at the same time gain us
'the esteem and admiration of other nations.
On the 18th, at nine in the morning, a T
Drum will be chaunted, in order tp celebrate
this memorable day, on which Tyranny was
abolished and Liberty restored.
