EuwAiiD Stanly’s Popularity. —The Locot\K-o paper in Mr. Stanly’s Ois- ' trii-t, not satisfied with having pursued him with almost Unparalleled bitterness during the late canvass, is still engaged in the en- ' deavor to depreciate him.

The Christiana Ovtraije.—The ex amination of the prisoners charged with a participation in the murder of Mr. Gorsueh, was c-losed at Lancaster, Pa., on the 25th iust. Twelveof the prisoners, two of them being whites, were comniitted to the cus- tinly’of the U. S. Marshal, to be t4iken to Philadelphia, where they are to be tried for high treason against the United States. I'vii.riiFS.—Numerous heavy fiilures ' i\. . curri'd .inioiig the merc h.Tiits and ' i.-.imt'ai tun rs at the North, and the .sc-ar- I t :u'iui‘V still exists.

Thi- pn si lit >tate of things is evidently nfM-iliiitable to the importation of too ma- I V rrof»ds. The country buys more than i' 'tii'. and is eonseijuently in debt.

Another effc'ct, jM^ually dis- a.'trous. of thi- exce.ssive importations, is, that the country filled with foreign Is, whii'h, either because the\ are c !iea|M T. or bei\«is’ th*y are foreign, su.. piT'fde the UJ»e of doinestir* inauufaeturi's; and the couscijuence is the failure of many iiianuf.ictui ini: establisbiuents, among them S 'liie Ilf those tleeiued most substantial. The many millions invested in c-otton, W :'lien, and iron manufaetures, have pro duced no return to the proprietors for the last vcar or two, and the jirosp-et ahead is not eheTing. * In .s.iuie res{iects we fear the above re marks are applicable to North Carolina. A few months ago our State was a large rii 'litor of the North. Exchange was so al'undant that the Hanks scarcely knew \vh ;! to do with it. This showed that, Ull- li’T the high prices of cotton, i^c., we were !liii2 more than we bought. I'or a Jii'inth ir twi) past, however, the surplus lia- bi en exhausted; exchange has been very Lard to get, and merchants have bc'cn co\ii])' lli d to carrv North (’aroliiia Bank Notes to the North to pay debts. If sui'li a ri'sult has so speedily followed a vear of abmulanee and of high prices, what may we ii"t fear during one- .so dif- fiTi iit as the ensuing promises to be? \ write to j.ut our readers on their guar A I'ttle jirudence now, a little economy nu'l>ight, may avert the evil conse- iJUl’lHvS. The Grape.—We ob.«crve that the Wilmington Herald corrects a hati-h of blunders of the “Horticulturist”, ill which this cb lieiotis tnble grape is men- lioncd as of South (,'aroliua instead of North Carolina origin, introduecvl into New Vork by Mrs. Isabella Gibbs, of Florida, instead of North Carolina, from the Cape Fear river in South Carolina instead of North Carolina,—with other such blunders. AV'e had occasion, a year or two ago, to correct several errors of a book published 1 iMlMtRTv.NT.—The following (says the National Intelligencer') is an extract of a letter from a gentleman in New York, whose correspnnilencc in England is from the most resjK'ctable and well-informed sources. He says: “I have a h-tter by the last British steamer which states that .'^pain, France, and Kngland an* negotiating a Treaty re specting the guaranty of (’uba. The con- ilitions are that Cuba shall have a LK*al Legislature, a representation in the Cortes at Mailrid, and that provision shall be made f«^r the gradual abolition of slaverv in tht‘ Island. I eonsiih'r the information Very reliable.” Si RMISSloX AM> llESlSTANfE. The Congressi!ual (’ in Virginia, seems to })0 condueted by the LocofH.‘os on the >.ime plan with adoptod in this State-. Their c’andidates eall theniselve> resistants, advocate the riglit of se«c‘^ion, and de nounce the Cpmpiomise as "unjust, uncon stitutional and tyrannical.” Still, they are willing, they .say, to ••acr|uiescc” in it! The Whigs, who univer.>;ally approve the Compromise ami supj)ort the Union, are ealled •'submissionists,” because they obc*y the laws passed by tlKinselvcs, and to whieh they have forced the to submit, or ac«|uic“sce. This acijuicseent resistance to Northern aggression is well shown up in the follow ing extract from a speech of Mr. liotts, in reply to his ojijinneiit. Mr. Botts says: “The irentlemaii state> that we are sub- missionists. What do I submit to!'' To tiu laws and L'onstitutioo of niy eonntry. The gentleman himself resists, and how? whv l«y aei[nieseence. [Laughter.] The geiitlenieu whose names I have before I ited, Calhoe.n and others, complain of un just. tyrannical and oppressive laws, yc*t they acijuiesce in them. Tiiey resist by aciuiescence. “Now these gentlemen aecjuicsce in what they term unconstitutional, unjust, oppre-vive and tyrannical laws, whereas I would not. If I stood alone in the House of llepp sontatives or in the midst of niy native State, I would stand up like a man in di-feiiee of the constitution and to resist oppression and tyranny, h-t it come in whatever shape or from whatever (|Uarter it might. Majorities have no charms for me, and minorities have no terrors for me, when I feed j)roudly con.scious that I am doing luy duty as a man and as a citizen of this republic.” We have rarely sc'eii the respective po sitions of the two grc:it jiolitieal parties more di.stiuctly iletincd. The Locotocos according to their own account are for re- aifttance to the Comiiromise, but tlu*y are not disunionists, for they (irtjtn'isir! The Whigs according to the same authority are submis.Nioiiists, they do the very same thing! The inconsi.-iteney of these doctrines of the Democracy are fully expo.xed by Mr. Botts. The Best Evidence.—Mr. (Charles Sumner, tiie Locofoco Senator frctni 'Mas sachusetts, speaks thus of Pre.«ident Fill- more, of devotion to the whole country, no better evidence (if it w;ere do- sired) could be furnished. Mr. Sumner says; “Into the immortal catalogue of nation al crimes, this (the Fugitive Slave Law) has now ])assed, tfrmriri;/ u ifh it hy on ni- ejiiidhlr iHTrssifi/j its authors, and rJiivjiy him, who as President of the 1 nited >.y a man in Boston, named Cole, in which’ States, set his name to the bill, and breath- the Isabcdla Gra[»e was described as having 'trijiinatcMl iu New \ork, the Seupj)crnoiig Grape as being a native of Ge,orgia instead of North (,'arolina, and the Catawba Grape ii-* being found on the Catawba river in Virginia, in.stead of the Catawba river in North C’arolina.

Hesolved, That, when we see at the hca 1 of this great nation as President a man, up to the time of lus eleetion, identified w ith the federal i»r whig party, and •with the ni«*st ultrh abolitionists of tin* North, whose cabinet officers have at all times been the uncompniiiising advocates of federal men and measures, and some the co-labc>rcrs with Mr. Fillmore himself in the dark work of abolitionism, we are cou- straiuc'd to !how, by our vott's, our entire disapproval of every step which will tend to keep or to .sustain such men in office. There’s consistency for you! They will not support Mr. Fillmore, who is, tlu'y .say, a laborer “in the dark work of abolition- isiii,” but they “will give a hearty, de- cidc>d, and united support to the talented and accomplished Col. George W. Thomp son,” who, on the 4th of July 1828, made a spocch at St. (Mairsville, Ohio, fnmi which the following is an extract: “The slaves of (he Unite»rSt;ites must and will be free. "Already we .see the workings of those feelings whieh must soon break forth. Kxainple is contagions; Hayti sustains a free and popular government; and I have .-jtood u))on the spot where the insurgents, amongst the slaves of our own c'ountry, had met—in the deep midnight, when all was still and voiceless—when the implements of husbandry were cdlected tojrether, to be made the weapons of di-ath —w hen the unlighted ton h was ready, at a nioini-nt’s warning, to be fired, and its kiudlinir flame applii'd to the proud domes of the devotc'd city, whilst she rested in security.

The same breeze that liMises out tin* gorgeous folds of our na tional banner, and fiings the sound of our martial music on the glad sunlight, sweeps over the spot where nori.e Blacks, who died the dow’s death, though worthy of a better fate, sleep, in their unreirarded infamy—'I HKV, who ^>1/1/ tranhd .'«(• to rroirii (lirui vith •'Their IiIoihI will call for vengeanc-e.

There is indeed no sectional feeling about t)i> in! For they supj*ort “heartily, dc*ci- dedly ;ind unitedly” one of the vilest Au- (•LITIomsts yet unhung! And the Wa.'-h- iuL'ton Union, the reviler of Northern Wliiirs, the >r/iiii of the A«- (iiiiiii/ Icommends this Aboli tionist to tilt* “hearty, decided, and unitc'd support” of the Democracy of Virginial Trulv have' we falh'ii upon strange times! The Haum»»nhh s Dkmocuacv.—The Washinirton I nion has been attacked by the Haleigh Standard and other Locofoco jiapers in this State, for calling (Jc-n. Quit man and his parti.sans, disunionists. The Standard, being one cd’ (In* .‘^aid “jiarti- sans,” denied the charge of disunionism, and asserted that (Jen. Quitman and the Staiidanl and all the sup})orters of scc(“s- sion, “the cardinal principle of Democra cy,” ac(|“d in the ('ompromise. Hut the rnion finds as much difticulty as we do, in understan !ing how North ('arolina Democracy can support at the same time, resist.ance to, and aeijuicscence in, the (’ompromise Ivavvs. The Union says: “Nor can we now un derstand by what sort of logic it is that we have sinned in saying that (Jovernor Quitman and his partisansdid not ac(juie.sce in the C’oirproniise, when he has retired from the contest expressly on the ground that wo m.ade no mist^ike in thus speaking of him. IT the Kuleigh Standard su]iports the Compromise and wishes such men as (iovernor Quitman eh^ct^Ml, it seems to our ]»oor comprehensiim as illogical as it would be to contend for the success of Mr. Seward, of New York, in order that hiyhcr- Idtrisin may be put down.” lUithcr seveie that! And certainly most unkind is it in the Union, to liken (Jen. Quitman and the Standard to Seward and his higher law followers. All these diffi culties however, will be reconciled in their next contest for the spoils.

Her name was placed in the writ held by the d(*c‘eased 3Jr. (lorsueh, who was niunlered re-ently at ('hristiana, together with tlie names of several of her children, male and fcmale. She was arrested at ('hristiana, and e.Npre.«sc^d a strong desire to go home to her master. She is juobably about sixty years of age. The [nesented the singular anomaly, of a detcruiination on the part of the fugitive to return to her master, and a sort of indifbreiice on the jiart of the master to receive her. She alleges that she twice went home to her master and was both timesdriven away by him, as she had not her children with her. Her daughters are married to two of the colored men implicated in the late dreail- ful tragedy in LaiirastcT county, w ho have not bc'en arrest(‘d.
