Cotton 9 a JO els. Int. Most Shocking Murder. Mr. Alexander Clark, who lived about 7 miles west of Pittsborough, Chatham county, was murdered, in a most brutal manner, on the 24th ult. by a negro man belong ing in the neighbourhood. Mr. Clark had suspected the fellow of stealing his wheat; got out a search-warrant, and found some of it in the negro's possession; and while they went together, to a distant cabin, to search for the rest; it appears the fellow effected his diabolical purpose, by beating Mr. C?s. brains out with a club and small axe. Mr. Clark not returning with, the negro, excited suspicions, and some of the neigh bors went to his cabin to seize him; but before they secured him, he cut his throat, competely sev ering the wind-pipe; and it is sup posed he will not survive long, as he has to breathe thro' the aper ture. M r.Clark was a respectable, sooer, ana lnaustnons man, es teemed by his acquaintance, and ! beloved by his family, (a wife and( three children;) Vho are thus sud denly and afflictirigly bereft of their only earthly supporter and protector. Salisbury Car. A Text and Commentary. The President's Message. "As yet very little addition of cost has been experienced upon the articles burthened with heavy du ties by the last Tariff." ' The .Facte. Broadcloths w'hich in Nov. 1827 eost 89 '50 3 95 nA j 4,00 in Nov. 1328 cost 3,00, 3,75, ana 4,4U respectively. Flannels which in Nov. 1827 cost S22 per piece of 46 yards, in Nov. 1828 cost 26. Both higher and lower flannels experienced nearly the same rise. Salisbury Flannels which in Nov. 1827 cost 621 cts., in Nov. 1828 cost from 75 to 80 cents. Speaking of the above goods the Boston dealers say "they are oblige to show their teeth so that the country dealers won't buy any thing near their usual orders this fall." If it were not for this han ging back on the part of the pur chasers, I he price would fiaye risr en still higher. Green Dockings which last fall cost 52 cents, this fall cost 65 cents that which cost 62, this fall cost 80 cents. Satinets last fall 50 ceptsr this, fall 60 cents. Diaper last fall 2,25, this fall 2,40. All this may be "little addition of cost" to come out of the pocket of a President of the U. S. with his 825,000 a year, but for a poor mechanic, who wishes to clothe himself and his family decently out of his scanty earnings, it is a burthen grievous to be borne. That this increase is owing, solely to the late Tariff is evident from the fact that stuff goods which were accidentally Jeft out of the Tariff have rather fallen than risen.. Bornbazetts are no higher. Plaids are no higher. Camblcts which last year cost 75 c. this year cost but 70. That cottons have fallen since '.he Tariff, only shows that uo legis lation can protect the manfnptn. rer against the effects of over-tra-dingthat laws intended for the protection, are more likely to pro duce the destruction of a particu lar interest, by producing too great and unwholesome; competition. The same may be said of the price of wool. The farmers were deluded in the belief that the price of wool must rise if the ta riff could be passeoj. It has pas sed and wool has fallen great sacritices have been made. Next year jt will fall still lower and greater sacrifices wijl be made. Thus the fanners are fleeced by the selfish manufacturing aristo cracy. Ravens duck which cost last fall $6912,thc piece, this fall cost 7. Is this "little addition" to th burthens of an interest already crushed already expiring. Sakm Coifrief.
