This infallible remedy has preserved

the Syrup is rubbed on the gums, the child
will recover. This preparation is ho in

no child will refuse to let its gums be
rubbed with it. When infants are at the
age of four months, though there is no up
pearance of teeth, oiu; buttle of the
Syrup should be used on the gums, to
open the pores. Parents should never be
without the Syrup in the nursery where
there are young children; for if a child

by preventing Convulsions, Fevers, Sje.

Raleinh, Jan. 9th, IS 40.
Gentlemen: In compliance with
your r --quest, I hasten to reply to the reso
lution of the Democratic Republican State
Rights Convention, handed to me this mor
ning. 1 certainly ieei mgniy nonoreu in
being selected as t e Democratic Candidate
for Governor, under circumstances so flat
tering to my feelings, by a body so res
pec'able and intelligent as that of the Con
vention, under whose authority you have
acted. Whilst I had no wish again to enter
into the stirring and exciting scenes of
politic A canvass, I do not feel myself at
liberty to decline a nomination proceeding
from such a source, sanctioned as I have
reason to believe bv at hast that portion
of my fellow-citizens, whose wishes 1 am
under su-'h strong obligations to obey.
It is now upwards of twenty five years
since I first mingled in the active politics
of the dav then a young man, the resi
dent ofaCouniy, whose inhabitants have
adheted with such s eady unanimity to the
principles ol the republican party; I espou
sed with zeal & ardor, the cause in which I
found the Country then engaged in the
maintenance of the rights and honor of the
nation. Thus trained in the school of Dem
ocracy and taught to respect the virtue and
intelligence of the people, I early imbibed
those doctrines of political faith, which de
nies to the Federal Government the exer
cise of powers not delegated, and holds
inviolate the reserved Rights of the States.
With these convictions it has been my ob
ject on all political questions both to vote
and act, with that party, whose opinions
as I believe, reflect the true principles of
the Constitution, as well as the sentiments,
wishes and feelings of- the great body of
the people. I have chose thus to act with
men of my own political views, believing
il the surest means of advancing such
measures and principles as 1 most approved.
This rule of action led me to the support
of Mr. Van Buren at the last Presiden
tial election, and like thousands of others
I doubt not, with as disinterested motives
as those who profess so great a horror, at
sharing in the "spoils of the victor."
Nor do I hesitate to avow my intention to
upport him in the coming contest, in pref
erence to the individual who has been se
lected as his opponent i shall support
him for the faithful manner in which he
has discharged the important trust confided
to his hands and because he stands
pledged to maintain unimpaired the prop
erty Institutions of the bouth, against the
mad schemes of the abolitionists, by whom
he is so generally opposed. So ! hhall sup
port him, for his firm and manly adherence
to the plan of an Independent Treasury
that great measure of deliverance, which
has been so bitterly denounced, because it
proposes to give to the Government the
same right which is secured to every citi
zen under the Constitution, of demanding
his dues in gold and silver and because
it seeks to savethe honest industry of the
Country, from the greedy cupidity of the
speculator; and to free the Nation's mon
ey from the use, as well as from the
"bars and bolts" of speculating Banks.
And I shall support him, because he is
opposed to the power of establishing an
United States Bank, and to the right of
appropriating the public money to objects
not authorized by the Constitution and
because he is committed to the permanent
reduction of the Revenue of the General
J Government to the measure of its expen-
1 diture, and the reduction of its expenditure
to its necessary wants. Such principles
and.me sui es, if properly sustained, cannot
fail as I persuade myelf, to add strength
to our free institutions, to render the peo
ple quiet and prosperous, and give addi
tional security to the Union itself.
Having thus candidly assigned the rea
sons for my support; it can hardly be ne
cessary to state the grounds of my objec-
. - ir .l
nous to me opposing canuiuaie. 11 111 uie
Convention by which Gen. Harrison was
nominated, not. a single mn from a slave
holJing State had the temerity to vote for
him, it cannot be expected that our people
shall do so. The very fact, that he is allied
with and supported by, a northern party,
who upon all occasions have manifested the
most decided hostility to the interest ot
the South, constitute in my view ample
grounds for opposition to his election.
And let me not be accused of indulging in
improper sectional feeling. So far from it,
as a Southern man, I am as ready to ac
knowledge our obligdions to the Demo
cracy of the North, for their efficient aid
in relieving us from the burdens of an odi
ous Tariff; as for the patriotic firmness
with which they have met the criminal
designs of the abolitionists.
1 have been thus frank in the avowal of
my opinion in regard to the Presidential
candidates, not that I deemed it so all im
portant, but that our opponents seem to
consider it, as the sole test of merit, and
therefore did not choose to subject myself
to the charge of concealment. Let me not
however be understood as complaining of
this test, nor as objecting to its application
eiiher to myself or friends but as simply
adverting to it as a ground of complaint by
those, who are so hasty to condemn, what
they are so ieady to practice. For it cannot
have escaped the recollection of every one,
that the election of President will have
transpired, before the Governor elect shall
be called on to enter upon the duties of his
Office. Whoever may be President, I
should hold myself alike bound as a citizen
and a magistrate to the support of mea
sures called for by the public good; and to
oppose such as might operate to the preju
dice of the country, or as involved the
exercise of "powers not delegated to the
United States, but reserved to the States
or to the people. "
I desire to stand before the freemen of the
State, not as the humble political partizan.
but on still higher grounds. As a North Ca
rolinian, ardently attached to my native
State, proud of her republican character,
and of that patriotic feeling, which has ev
er marked the devotion of her people to
the free institutions of the Country. Im
pelled by these high considerations, I am a
friend to that system of State policy, which
shall lead to the gradual development of
her resources. For sustaining, by a judi
cious and economical application of her
means, such works of Internal Improve
ment, as shall be sanctioned by public
opinion, without incurring a State debt,
or running into those extravagant projects,
which must end in failure, and produce
that embarrassment, Which the large in
debtedness of our sister States, amounting
to an annual tax of more than Ten Millions
has at present so seriously involved
them. For husbanding that fund dedicaied
to the improvement of the mind, and .sus
taining that system of school education,
which .'hall promise the greatest pradical
benefit to the poor and necessitous. Of
cautiously avoiding all obligations to thu
federal government, but at the ame tin e
yielding a willing acknow hdgnn nt ;f
what may be its due, as well as to that tf
bur sister States, by the cf.-t "t t-oi.al
compact. Of demanding the faithfid ob- tr
vance of law, as well by bolii (oip ra e,
as by individuals. Of encourage g with
liberal spirit individual eniirpize, but
withholding exclusiye privileges, except
