SA I UIU) Y, SKI'T'U 1, 1638. Our County Court was held this week. We have had about lhe usual quantity variety ol State and civil ca?es none wor thy of special notice. ffyWe Tieard it remarked, at the close of the recent election, that the Whigs in Pill had ''eaten the entire swine" during the canvass, merely reserving the tad lor a final display, should ihey prove victori ous. The last Washington Whig gives a vivid description of the manner in which this useful appendage was "used up" at a Public Dinner at Paclolus, on the I otli nit. as it says, 'in honor of the Whig vic tory in that county OTfAmnng the recent decisions of the Supreme Court we notice the following: Also in Hiues v Spruill et al. in Equity, from Edgecombe, declaring that there i ?rror in the interlocutory decree. Melancholy Accident. vve learn that on Sund iy morning last, as three negroes weie out a racoon hunting, in hewing down a tree near Cofiield's bridge, in Ha lifax county, the tree fell on a small cy press which bending over struck Jerry, ;i negro man belonging to Air. G. C. Pitt man of this county, and knocked his brains out, killing him instantaneously. flWe some time since published a statement resprcting the sudden k. mysie rioustWaih in Floiida vi)v. John H Par for, a native of this county and loimerly a resident of this place. It will be seen from the subjoined article, that the dread ful suspicions o his being murdered by his slave, are imw realized : Jiurdcr ti ill Out lo November lasi our comvnu.iitv were trwn into rousier n.iti mi by the mysterious disappearance of Dr. J hn H. Parker, formerly of .North Carolina. Search 'was made, and his body found in the Escambia river, about 25 miles hence. Ii was concluded tht he had fallen, by accident, frm a Mnall boat (in which he was in the habit of crossing the river,) .tml got drowned. It now ap pears by the confession f one of his slaves named lis, that lhe Doctor was mur dered by Lewis and another slave namn! Heurv, and thrown into the rivt r. Th deceased was killed by Lewis, who struck him with an axe on the side of lhe face, and then gave him several other blow, which despatched him. Lewis, it is said, has lately manifested symptoms of mental derangement, but, in relation to this mat ter, there is too much meaning in hi madness," to leave any doubt of the hor rible truth of his confession. Pensacola Gazttte. (7We have been favored with the first number of "The Farmer's Advocate, and Miscellaneous Reporter." It is published Semi-weekly in Jamestown, Guilford conn tv, by Mr. John Sherwood. We invite attention to the Prospectus, which will be found in our advertising columns. A pa per of this description has been long need ed in this section of the country, and we doubt not it will prove of incalculable ad vantage to th? agricultural community. It can be seen al our office, and we will glad ly forward the names of such as may feel disposed to pttronize this laudable undertaking. ELECTION RETURNS. Nine counties remain lo be heard from, respecting the Governor's election. The Whigs thus far claim a majoiity of 17.069 in favor of Governor Dudley. We wili publish in our next, a statement of the voles for Governor, in lhe different coun ties, agreeably to the returns; and a List of lhe members elect to the General As sembly. The Standard has the following vcmarks on the subject. The Result Our returns are now com plete. We have heard from the Senato rial District of Buncombe, Haywood and Macon, which has elected a Democratic Republican Senator, and one member of .in? same politics from Macon. Tins gives ;s 23 out of 50 in the Senate, and 55 out f 120 in lhe House of Commons. We - w state with confidence the political laracter of our next Legislature. m have no molive for misrepresentation .r concealment; and w hile truth and candor quires us to say the friends of lhe admin traiion have not a majority in either ranch of the Legislature, we can say, with equal cei tainty, tliat lhe Bank IVhigs are aUo in a minority. The lew Mates Rights men in both houses, hold the balance, and will decide such questions of a political character as may aiise. If w e cannot boast of a majo rity for the administration and the sub-trea ty so our opponents, proper, cannot elaim a majority for Clay and a National Bank. It is a fact, beyond question, lhat while the opposition carried every county where they commanded a majority the friends of the administration have lost lhe asceu dancy by'divisions. Such was the case in B'-rtitf, Sampson, Orange, Stokes, and Yancey; to say nothing of other counties in which our friends claim the majority. In those counties thtre has been a h!s ot S members; more than suffi ienl to have secured the majority in both branches Our enemies may boast and brag but our friends abroad may be well assured, (hat our opponents will be able to effect nothing of a political character neither instructions, direct nor inferential. Whatever may be the impressions of others, we are satisfied with the present as peel of affairs in this Slate. The bitter waters of federalism have extended to their utmost bounds, and must hereafter recede from before the frowns of an honest and patriotic people. The viriuousdemocrai y of Noith Carolina will arouse to a vigilant exercise of their patriotic duties, i areles if the reproaches of corrupt and interested partisans, or the bullying and threatening of crazy politicians. The people have nothing to fear. The God of justice is with u;aud our Slate will be one of the fii uiesi pillars in the temple ol Constitu tional Liberty. Raleigh standard. C?We learn, from the Lincolnton Re publican, that Messrs. Clement and Ri helm, from Rowan, are opposed in a Na tional Bank This is but the commence merit of the decrease of the celebrated fe- leral majority of fourteen. if). die strong Federal current which is sweep-1 iug over the land and threatening the ue et ruction of the rights of lhe Stales. If my overthrow shall have the effect io in duce the people to pause and survey the ground on which they now stand and the dangers ahead, I shall not regret my sacrifices. I am well satisfied that many patrtottc and honest men have been led into error by their bitter hostility lo the Van Buren oartv. and for such I slill entertain re spectful and kind feelings. They have overlooked principle in their hot and vin dictive pursuit of men. 1 had hoped that a long course of faithful public service would have protected me from lhe illiberal and unjust animadversions of my old poli tical friends, ii nol from my opponents In this 1 have been disappointed. I am however not deprived ol an approving conscience, and an abiding faith that my countrymen will (when passion and pieju (lice subside) not onlv do me justice, but repudiate the false and anti-republican doctrines now in the ascendant.

On the evening of his death he started for home, as was supposed, bui not reaching this thai night, serious appreheu sions were entertained by the citizens of uur village, thai some misfortune had befallen him, and immediately search was made for him that night in lhe neighborhood where he was last seen : his horse was found on Ihe bank of Broad River nearby, but no traces of its owner could be seen. On next morning search was again made, and melancholy to relate, he was found in the bottom of the river, having apparently been drowned lhe evening pitvious. In the death of this y oung man the com munity lias been deprived of one, wlm, by his natural endowments, was benefitted for any station in life, and who by the exercise of a highly gified mental capacity, might have rtfl-cied lasting honor upon his na tive iiiatf; mild and courteous in his de meanor while at lhe Bar, he gained lhe es teem of all his legal associates. He has left an aged Father and Mother, a brother and several sisters to deplore a loss which to them is indeed irreparable. Rutherford Gazette. Chapel Hill.
