that no fear deed be entertained that the road
will go down'; that in a few days they will be

We might here stop, and commit the subject
into the, hands of the people. But we take the
liberty of stating the fact, that Mr. Senator Hay
wood, who gives " form and pressure " to the
Democratic Party of North Carolina, introduced
the bill authorising the subscription of $600,
000 to the Wilmington and Raleigh Rail Road.
That Messrsi Edwakds, Hexrt, Sauxders,
land others off the most distinguished of our citi
zens, were prominent supporters of tlie Inter
nal Improvements of our State, and are as re
sponsible as any others for all involvements at
tendant there en. We record this to their praise.
It shows that n this instance, at least, their love
for the honor Jthe interest and prosperity of the
44 Old North ! State," overcame all considera
tions of party 4 availment, either in the presen
or in the prospective. And although we know
that thesejneh will go great lengths for party,
as most people will, we cannot believe that they
will recede from their high and honorable
ground, so fair fas to give, public sanction to the
base appliances of stump demagogues in the
Congressional, Election. . ' .u

he tarra of 1842 was unequal and op

richer and richer, the people of the South
was getting poorer and poorer He refer
red to a number ot articles that the t)oor us

&c, which he said was taxed from 100 to
300 per cent., while silks, wines, .gold
chains, jewelry, &c., were taxed only 20
per cent. Who, he asked, usec sijks, gold
chains and jewelry ? the farmer or the
city dandy ; and he held out the idea that
the poor paid all the taes. Nothing was
said that the rich man with his 50 or 100
negroes used the same articles that the poor
did and paid these enormous taxes, -and
this too over and above paying the duty

in continuation of the subject that by the

Mr. Fisher next referred to' the annex

they knew how important Texas was to
the South. It was necessary tp give more
power by creating .slave States to cope
with the North. He stated that Texas
had been acquired by the purchase of Lou

the charge against the late Mr. Bates he
said he stood so fair as a man of unblem-

the bill reported by Mr. McKay as a sub
stitute for the Tariff of 1842 he did not
propose a higner duty on lastings, the arti
cle used by button-makers, than the act of
1842. We believe Mr. Barringer's re
marks carried conviction to the minds of
many of the people pf the truth that the
Tariff is beneficial to the poor farmer as
well as the rich manufacturer.
He next referred to the Annexation 'of
TexaSi He said he was in favor of its ad

to the joint resolution because he believ
ed that step was also unconstitutional.
He thea referred next in order' to the
Rail Roads; He said he was not in the
Legislature: in 1836-'37 when the subject
was started. That in that year Mr. Hoke,
Mr. Henry, Mr. Marsteller and several
others of the democratic party had taken
active steps towards aiding the internal
improvements of the bfate. That in 1838
he was not in the Legislature, but that at

liad previously been loaned to the compa

holders and then a good mortgage be giv

was done and he believed the Whole a

to send him some documents. He replied
that he would send him some documents,
and that he would send him a Primer.
We left the election ground together, and
on the way I mentioned to the General
that I felt amused at the idea of his send
ing Jernigan a Primerfrom Congress.
