OjVVe lave the gratification
to announce that Dr. Hall has ac

to him by the citizens of this coun

CyThe Washington Whig of

Whig Convention which recently
assembled at that place, and the

declines the nomination as a can

(CGen. James Owen, Presi
dent of the Wilmington and Ra
leigh Rail Road, relumed a day
or two since, (says the Wilming- i AfeXas ana u,ef '.gnation ex
ton Advertiser,) from a visit along j PreSSed M"' "pilal, at
the outposts, and to Raleigh, con
nected with the business of the
Company. He has been success
ful, we understand, in effecting
arrangements highly productive
to the interests of the Company,
and promising a speedy benefit to
the travelling public.
(t?We have been favored by
a friend (says the Portsmouth
Times) with the following extract
of a letter from Mr. Gwynn. The
information it contains is encoura
ging, h remains for the friends
of the great route to make one
more hearty pull and it will be
beyond the shoals and dangers.
Now is the time for a blow to tell

'l am progressing very well in
the arrangement for the establish
ment of the line of stages and
steamboats to Charleston, one

Stages will be forwarded soon."
The boat has arrived, and Mr.
Gwynn returned. Every thing ! Monday morning last of the ef

Virginia. The Virginia Le
gislature, by w ay of an offset for
five millions increase of bank ca
pital, have appropriated four and
a half million of dollars for vari
ous objects of internal improve
ment, among which are $50,000
for the Portsmouth and Roanoke
C?Moneyed affairs appear to
be rapidly, growing worse. The
failures in New Orleans alone are
said to exceed one hundred mil
lions of dollars. The True Ame
rican of the 19th inst. says:
The "failure of Yealman, Wood
& Co. will carry more immediate
distress into the West than any
one of the suspensions that lias yet
taken place. Their house occu
pied a very high ground in the
confidence of millions of people.
The result will be ruinous in Ten
nessee and Kentucky 1 lne poor.
Their notes make up almost one
third of the circulation in Ten
nessee. A constant drain of specie is
going on in Mississippi. Negroes
have fallen to $150 to $300, that
formerly cost $1,200. Every
species of property is a mere drug
among the people of that State.
No sales of Cotton to-day, ex
cept a few bales taken in the way
nf trade, at nominal prices. If
the upper country people will con
tinue to force Cotton into this
market, it will have to be sold on

There is no demand whatever for
the article, at any price. Flour,

ft?5 A few days since President
Van Buren presented to Col.
Croatian, a cold medal, voted
states positively that the Mexican
Charge d'Affaires has received
orders to suspend immediately, all
intercourse with the Cabinet at
Washington. Taking this in
couneclion with the blockade of
the receipt of Gen. Jackson's mes
sage, recommending, contingent
ly, letters of reprisals, we should
imagine we were on the eve of a
war with Mexico. Unfortunately,
however, this miserable, distract
ed, priest-ridden country, impov
erished with all her gold mines, is
the prey of eternal civil wars, and
at this moment in a revolution.
Gen. Santa Anna if restored, and
faithful to his pledges, may yet
save Mexico, and be the liberator
instead of conqueror, as he wished
to be of Texas.
Murder and another warning
to drvnkards. On Saturday last,
in the lower part of this county,
Henry Massey was stabbed in the
abdomen by Morris Sehorn, which
resulted immediately in his death.
Sehorn is now confined in the jail
of this place, to await his trial at
the next Superior Court. There
was no just cause for the commit
ting of this deed, and the prisoner
himself says there was none but
attributes it to his being intoxica
ted. This is another melancholy
result from the excessive use of ar
dent spirits. Charlotte Jour.
Dcstructtve Tornado. The
Greensboro' Telescope of the 14th
inst. says: We were witnesses on
section of country, or at least so
far as we have as yet heard, ac
companied by thunder and repeat
ed lightnings; about 9 o'clock at
night the storm, for a few seconds
only, raped with resistless force in
the neighboring village of James
town, about 1 1 miles southwest of
this place, and greatly injured or
entirely prostrated ten buildings,
including out houses. It is here
too worthy of remark, that amidst
the general ruin, not a single indi
vidual was in the slightest degree
injured, notwithstanding several
houses, were entirely prostrated
and carried away, in which were
at the time entire families. Con
siderable damage was done to fen
cing, in many sections heard from.
Pennsylvania. The Legisla
ture of Pennsylvania recently
passed a bill appropriating $3,
092,000 for works of internal im
provement in that State. The
bill was in due lime sent to the
Governor for his signature, and
on Monday last, he returned it to
the House of Representatives with
a Message, stating his reasons for
refusing to sign it the principal
of which is, that it will increase
the State debt to $50,000,000 in
about four years. When the
.Message was read, an animated
debate ensued, after which the
vote was taken on the passage of
the bill, and it stood as follows:
Yeas 4S, Nays 47 the Constitu
tion requiring a majority of two
thirds, the bill was lost. Several
attempts were made to get up a
new bill, embracing the most im
portant works but they all fail
ed, and the Legislature adjourned

Ohio. The Legislature of this
State adjourned on the 30th elt.
after four months session. The
bill for the creation of thirty-five
neic Banks was indefinitely post
poned. The Surplus Revenue is
to be distributed among the coun
ties in the ratio of their popula
tion. The County Commission
ers are authorized to loan it out in
sums not less than $100 nor more
than $1000, the interest to go to
the school fund. An Improve
ment bill has passed, which pro
vides that the State shall subscribe
as much to any Canal, Rail Road,
or Turnpike, as the companies
have subscribed. 16.

has called an extra session of the

held on the third Monday of the

Rathbun's Trial. The trial of
Rathbun for forgery was closed
at Batavia, New York, on Tues
day last. The Jury, after being
out for some time, came into Court
and announced that they were un
able to agree upon a verdict, and
were, by consent of the counsel,
discharged. It is understood,
seven were for convicting him,
and five for acquitting him. Rath

other million upon the same stock.
The Grippe (or Influenza) has

great excitement has been produ

the discovery, according to the j
Chicago American, and other pa
pers, of a villanous publication
said to have been got up by some
New York merchants, wherein the
Western merchants are regularly
labelled and classified by an assu
med value appended to , their

to denounce a similar attempt up

At least five millions of dollars
will not cover the annual purcha
ses in New York by merchants
from that quarter. What lias
been the consequence of the pub
lication mentioned? Already these
merchants declare they will aban
don us and go to Boston, Balti
more and Philadelphia. We im
plore them first to ascertain if this
is not a malicious trick got up by
interested persons to injure the
character of New York. We feel
confident that when the investiga
tion is carried out it will be found
that the merchants of this city will
with one voice repudiate the foul
imputation. And if we have any
among us who are guilty, they
will be branded and shunned.

Slave Case Riot. The case
of the colored man arrested a few
days since, on the charge of hav
ing run away from his master in
Virginia, came up before the Re
corder on Tuesday, and after
some preliminary steps it was ad
journed to yesterday at 1 1 o'
clock. Owing to the immense
crowd present, the Recorder ad
journed to the Sessions Room,
Alms House. The examination
of witnesses in behalf of the slave,
continued till 3 o'clock, when the
proceedings were adjourned.
Nearly all the audience were
blacks, and most of them retired.
A few, however, lingered behind,
and when the prisoner was bro't
out of the Alms House door, un
der Messrs. Lowds and Fountain,
deputy sheriffs, they were assault
ed by about 500 colored persons
in the Park. From the Gazette
we learn that this time "Justice
Bloodgood, broke through the
crowd and when within arms
length of the prisoner, a strapping
wench jumped on his back and
threw her arms around his neck;
while in this situation, two ne
groes came to her assistance and
succeeded in bringing him to the
ground, when one of them com
menced beating him on the back
the head and neck. He howev
er soon succeeded in securing him
as he was about crawling under
the chains of the parterre. Some
officers were also fortunate enough
to capture the other negro and the
wench, and all three were com
mitted." Gilbert Hays, one of the offi
cers, was also knocked down and
much bruised; David Waldron,
another officer, had his coat torn
off by Russell C. Wheeler, a law
yer, who was arrested and bound
over in the "sum of $10,000 to an
swer for the assault.
"During the confusion the pri
soner was carried oft by the mob,
which proceeded up Broadway to
Reed street, where they turned
down towards the North river.
Just after passing Church street
the rescued man was stealthily
pushed into an alley, and the mob
continued down the street, as if
they still had their prize in com
pany. Their movements were
however watched by Deputy She
riff Fountain, who remained in
front of the alley, and sent to the
police office for assistance. He
was speedily supplied with the
requisite aid, and after a diligent
search of the premises, the negro
was found in a coal hole, and re
convened to prison. On search
ing him, a dagger was found in
his pocket, with both edges sharp
ened, secured round his body. ib.
Brutal Outrage. A black man
named Frank, who is well known
about the neighborhood of Patter
son, w as on Saturday last tried at
Hackensack, N. J. and sentenced
to be imprisoned in the Slate Pri
son for seven years, for having
assaulted a pretty looking young
white woman about 22 years of
age, named Mary Cole. The
monster attacked the woman in a
bye spot, about four miles from
Patterson, and swore lie would
take her life, unless she yielded;
and in a struggle that ensued
three of her fingers were broken.
Finding himself foiled, the fiend
then tore one of her ear rings out
of her ear; and afterwards robbed
her of her handkerchief, a pair of
gloves, and a small amount of mo
ney .JY. Y. Era.

France. A panic respecting

in Paris, which has extended itself
to the other towns. The sums
drawn from the Metropolitan Sa

preceding March 10, exceed by a

had commenced. Letters from

as deplorable. Thirty thousand
human beings are in a state of ex

manufacturers of France had ne
