1 A LITTLE FIGURING,
MrirManly, in his speech at this place, says
the 'Hillsborough Recorder, after discussing the
questions as to w ho is responsible, for beginning
the war with Mexico, in which he made it ve.
ry cjear, as we think, that President Polk is the
person, indulged in a short colloquy on the ex
pense; of the war and the mode of paying it,
whicH, WP presume, will be of interest to the
people, who, at last, will have to-' foot the bill."
He spoke sometime, after this manner.
Assuming the expenses at 8150,000,000. fa
mode pate estimate,) he found by calculation that
Nortrj Carolina wiftild have about $6,000,000
to pay for her share. The Democratic policy
opposes a high tariff, so that the sum must be
raised in the Truly other mode, viz : by direct
taxation. Now let us see what each one will
have; to pay , to the 'government. Our tax fur
State; purposes now mounts to about $80 000
in the aggregate. Take this sum, and the
80,06.000, and any one who has a knowledge
of mi;!lipli ution and division, and "a smaller
ing of the rule, of thee," can telbin a moment
for each individual. State your sum thus :
80,000 : 1 : : C.000,000 : A
Multiply the second and thirdjerms together,
eays'the rule, and divide the product by the first,
and the quotient will bo the fourth term or an

would have to pay S75. lie who now pays
610 -would have to pay 750. And he who pavs

THE WHIG NOMINEES.
From all parts of the country, we re
ceive the most cheering news of the re
ception of the nominees of the WhigCon
vention for President and Vice President.
Although many had their individual pre
ferences, yet a sense of the necessity for
decisive and energetic exertions being
made to rid the country of bad Govern
ment, have united the Whig party as one
man. Never, since the foundation ofthe
Government has the truth of that toast
given by Henry A. Wise, Union of the
Whigs for the sake of the Union" been
more sensihly felt, than at this time. We
wish not only to get clear of Polk and
repair the injury done by him, but we
most ardently desire to defeat the election
of Cass, the avowed defender of all Mr.
Polk's unconstitutional course on all oc
casions. He (Cass) if elected, is pledged
o pursue pretty much the same policy,
and if he does, will embroil us in another
expensive War. He is already pledged
o go for more annexation, and the admis
sion of millions of ignorant people to the
rights and privileges now enjoyed by
American citizens which is the more to
be deprecated, to say nothing of its uncon
stitutionality, on account of the unfitness
of this people, different from us in lan
guage and feeling to exercise the rights
These are some of the considerations
which move the Whigs and all good citi
zens at this time, to oppose with might
and main the election of this Federalist
and modern Locofoco.v In him the coun
try will have Nothing calculated to pro
mote peace and happiness, and a liberal
enlightened policy, so necessary to deve-
lope its loources and make it what it is
capable of being made. But all the old
exploded humbugs, which for years past,
have been adopted by the Locofoco party,
will still be adhered to.
We would say to all who desire the
Government to be administered Constitu
tionally to range themselves under the ban
People of North Carolina, distinguished

men wliose object is so purely selfish
so destitute of any thing like sincerity and
so much calculated to weaken our pre
sent efficient system of laws ?
We do not wish to be understood in
these remarks, as being opposed to any
alteration of the-Constttution if it is the
will of the people, but to the manner and
to the men who have sprung it upon us
so unceremoniously for purely selfish and
unprincipled motives. When the time
arrives for action on this subject, we shall
not be found in opposition to the public
OCT3 We notice that the Democratic
papers have taken occasion to inform the
public, that Gen. Cass' father, Jonathan
Cass, as also his grand-father, fought for
their country, in the battle of Bunkers
Hill. This is doubtless true : Gen. Cass
father was a thorough going Whig, and
so continued to the day of his death. In
deed all his relations brothers, brothers
in law. &c, we understand are Whigs,
and the old gentleman, the General's fa
ther, in speaking of his son Lewis poli
tics, has been often heard to say, Lewis
is a sad fellow.n
With this view of his history he is enti
tled to no credit on account of the Whig
deeds of his father and we think the
least said about it the better.

Our opponents, conscious that ihey can say

opened their batteries on tbo Whig candidate
for the Vice Presidency.
He is, say thpy, an Abolitionist, a Wilmot
ProvisionUt, and withal a horrible Whig.
Our opponents are really concerned about
one thing only, as regards the Presidential elec
tion ; and that is the defeat of Gen. Taylor and
the success of Gen. Cass. We are prepared
to. hear any number or any kind of charges
against either Gen. Taylor or Mr. Fillmore.
Who has forgotten their course towards Gen.
Harrison, in 1840, and Mr. Clay in 1844 t To
believe democratic representations these great
and good publio servants were no belter than
traitors, and deserved, not only public scorn,
but the gallows. We know the world knows
that in these instances they were as unjust
as they were ungenerous and ungrateful ; and
as the sun transcends in glory ihe feintest star
that twinkles in the heavens, so shall the virtu,

last the artificial glory of iheir idol Polk. Since
