The Droix)sition of a leading Ca
nia paper that the State hall ede
and that an Occidental republic be or
ganized on the Pacific coast, does not
seem to affect the nerves of the old wo
men of the Republican ? party, and the
Louisville Cotirier-J ourrtal remarks
with much force that "if a Southern
newspaper of the most obscure kind
should use language anything approxi
mating to that of the: San Francisco
Daily Stock Report, the Republican or
gans in the North would be double
leading their editorials an calling for
troops. It makes all the difference in
the world from what quarter of the
country secession talk comes." So in
deed it does. In the North the threat
from California uttered through the col
umns of a leading and influential journ-alN-attracts
i no ; attention whatever.
On the other hand there is S miserable
little Democratic newspaper, the name
of which we have really forgotten, pub
lished somewhere down itf Mississippi,
which, fond of hearing itself roar and
ambitious of 'notoriety,
gives expression to some
prejudicial to the Union, and for its re
ward has thoi:extreine' satisfaction of
seeing itself advertised senii-monthly
in tlie Washington Republican, which
encourages it to persist irt its folly by
characterizing it as a; 'tleadig journal,"
and proclaiming unbfushihgly that the
little Mississippi paper is the truest ex
ponent of Southern sentiment.
When an individual, a newspaper or
any number of individualsin California
or any Western Eastern for Northern
State, bluster around about secession, he,
it or they, as the case inayi be, are ridi
culed or disregarded, but when any ob
scure Southern popinjay, ! who would
never be heard of outside of his own
township except for the colossal meas
ure of his jackassery, utters for notorie-,
ty's sake a "disloyal" sentiment, the
mouths of Congressmen and. the pens of
journalists are set to work on the mo
ment to convince the country that ie
South is under arms and that another
war can by no manner of means be
AXOTHE& STATE DEBT BILL.
We have received from Col. John Ia
Brown the text of a new bill upon; the
subject of the State . debty reported by
the joint select committee on this sub
ject, of which' Hon.5 Giles Mebanei "of
Caswell, fs chairman. It is entitled "an
act to compromise ami adjust a portion
of the debt of the State. and to provide
for the payment thereof." The 1411 is
verv lenzthfand as it is yet far from
passage, we preferto reproduce the Ral
eigh Observei's summary of its provis
ions, rather than print the text or pre
pare an epitome of our own. After
mentioning that the u preamble recites
many facts connected with the Swasey
suit, which has been so long pending,
and the object of which is to secure the
payment of the bonds issued to pur

and in the meantime to pay the Inter

which would otherwise come to the
public treasurer," the Raleigh Observer
The object of the bill is declared to
be to renew the State indebtedness; to
protect the State's stock from a forced
sale and to increase the educational

Some of those papers which were be

Until it arrives at that position where

A Curious Story from North
Carolina. Mr. S. P. May of Asheville,
N. C?vtStes the Newrkttnlhat,
several families of the name of Crowell'
in Halifax coTOlfi thia S
to be direct descendants of thef ather
of Oliver Cromwell. In the year 1674
two brothers, John, and Edward, broth
ers of Oliver Cromwell left.England
for. America, and settled in New Jer
sey, soon after which they emigrated to
Halifax county, North Carolina. While
on the voyage, fearing that persecution
would follow from the adherents of
Charles IL, then on the English throne,
they resolved to change their name.
This was done with a solemn ceremony,
and by writing their names each one on
a paper, and5 each cutting from' the'pa-'
per the letter M, and casting it into the
sea. "TTuFfamily pigrn"vellum,'
recording this fact was with the family
m North Carolina in an ornamental
chest, which with other valuables was
seized in 1781 by a scourting party of
Tarleton's Legion, and carried off. The
family made another record of the
transaction, which is preserved by their

it is that the bill has already passed
both houses, and has only to go back

Theleonf erence committee's report on
the bill to amend the revenue laws was
presented, agreed to and the bill passed,
There were three amendments by
the Senate to which the House dis
agreed. The first was that striking
out tne clause 01 tne House bill provid
ing that any person who rectifies, puri
fies, refines or manufactures less than
600 barrels of proof spirits a year shall
pay $100. The House conferees in
sisted upon this clause and the Senate
conferees receded, leaving' 1 in fhir bna
The next disagreement' wjIs in regard
to Lucifer matches. The committee
agreed to retain the tax so that it re
mains as under .the existing law.
The third disagreement was upon the
amendments of the Senate in regard to
the taxation of savings banks. These
amendments were agreed to by the
committee and remain in the bill.
The Senate resumed the considera

amendment 01 tne committee ion pf
Sropriations to appropriate"$250,o1)0 for
efraving the expenses of the courts of
the United States and for defraying
the expenses incurred under the en
forcement act. The amendment was
the subject of earnest discussion, in
which all the leading Democratic Sen
ators took part, denouncing the action
of the department of justice in employ
ing deputy marshals and other subor
dinate officials for partisan purposes as
entity unwarrantable. Ultimately
the amendment was adopted. The bill,
was finally passed. During the discus
sion Senator Bayard remarked that the
election law had been administered in
the interest of one political party, and
not in the interest of justice. There
could be nothing more dangerous than
tne overthrow or law under tne pre
tense of enforcing the law. He de
nounced the test oath law and said he
did not believe Congress would ad
journ until that law be repealed.
