Uiit there is an order neither new or circum-

This order is familiarly known as the "PAY-

on the body. politic, the former strikes a blow at

Mr, Bragg is the right sort of an internal im
provement man. lie is willing tu go as far as
the resources ol the State will prudently allow,
without burdening the people or resulting in repti
diatjun relying upon our own means to pay the
instalments, and not supplicating the federal gov.
eminent lo take our own funds and graciously
lo appropriate them to do it. Gen. Duckery says
lo carry out the policy now inaugurated will cost
$10,000,000, and how docs he propose to 'raise
this enormous uinoum : by insisting upon the dis
tribution of ihe public lands or the proceeds there
of. This is the great issue in the present canvass
for Governor, as it was hist summer in I his Dis
trict when Messrs. Craigo and Osborne were can
vassing for Congress ; and we confidently expect
it to stand by the decision then made.
The land question has been a favorite hobby
with the Whigs since Mr. Clay originated his
great American system a system more fraught
with consolidation and centralization, than any
ever submitted to (he American people, and when
ever they have had an opportunity have invariably
voted it down. It is a question, in the hands of a
demagogue, that artfully managed, appeals di
rectly to lhe pockets an impression is hoped to
be made upon those who do not give themselves
the trouble to investigate it in order to see how it
ultimately adversely effects their interests. The
people are told that the federal government owns
a vast unoccupied domain, that the States are en
titled to a distributive share, and that the new
Stales, by a species of unjust and unequal legis
lation, are absorbing the whole of it ; that il North
Carolina could get her share of these lands she
could apply it lo the promotion ol education and
internal improvements, thereby improving our
condition without an increase of taxation. This
sounds very pretty, and is wel! calculated to de
ceive the unwary. These lands have been ac
quired by two methods first, by deeds of cession
from some old States, North Carolina included,
and second, by purchase or conquest. The deed
of cession made by North Carolina reads thus :
"The lands shall be considered as a common i
fund for the use and benefit of the United States
of America, North Carolina inclusive, according
to their respective and usual proportion in the
general charge and expenditures, and shall be
laithfully disposad of for that purpose, and for no
other use whatsoever."
Now, can these lands be distributed without
acting in bad failh lo the State who made the ces
sion ? At the time this munificent gift was made
by North Carolina, the country had just emerged
from the war ol the Revolution, hampered with
debt, and without credit. In order lo enable it to
pay r ff the debt of the old confederation which it
had assumed, Norlh Carolina and the other old
States made this cession. It was to extinguish
this debt, and to form the basis of future credit,
that it was made, and to be as it now is, a fund
for the common use and benefit of the United
States, according to their respective and several
proportions in the general charge and expenditure
and to be faithfully and bona fide disposed of
for that purpose and none other whatsoever.
The Territory acquired by the common blood
and treasure of all the States stand upon the same
footing. This Territory has cost the Government
$300,000,000, this money was raised by indirect
taxation, and the sales cf the lands should be ap
plied to the extinguishment of this debt first and
the proceeds then go into the Treasury to support
the government in order that the duties may be
lessened. If the proceeds of this lands are di
vested from the Treasury of course the deficit
must be made up by an increase of the tariff,
thus working a double injury to the South for
she paid two-thirds of the money with which they
were purchased, and will get less than a third of
them if divided. There is no difference between the
distribution of the binds or the money with which
they were bought and if Congress has the right
to do the one, certainly it can increase the tariff,
and if it produces more than is required for the
administration of the Government, divide the sur
plus among the States. That is the doctrine of
the high protective tariff men all over the Coun
try, and how would that affect the South ? Why,
we would pa' in the federal coders three dollars
and receive one in return, minus the expense of !
collection and disbursement. This land question I
is a humbtur revived to take the. ueonle. who are I
awake now to the cause of common schools and

Since our last issue we have had the plea,
sure of conversing with intelligent gentlemen from
various of the surrounding counties, all of whom
are in fine spirits, and they say that from present
indications, Mr. Bragg will poll a heavier vote
than Gov. Reid did two years ago while Bock
ery will not near reach Kerr's. We met a lead
ing man from Union yesterday who to.d us that
the democracy there were never more united and
enthusiastic and that there would Le a very full
turn out. Dockery is known there the course
he pursued in the canvass for Congress when
Hon, G, W, Caldwell was his opponent the ul
tra measures and consolidation doctrines advoca
ted then his demagoguism and overbearing man-
ner will effectually tell against him in that county.
We regret to learn that it is doubtful whether
Mr. Bragg can visit this region during the canvass.
With all due deference to the Whig press, we
must say that the course Dockery pursues in ma
king appointments without consulting his demo
cratic competitor, to say the least, is as ungener
ous as it is unusual. The practice for the candi
dates to arrange their meetings to suit each others
convenience has obtained in the State, and has the
sanction of courtesy, justice, and good feeling.
We have no idea that the General will come in
this d:rection. He acts upon lhe principle the least
some matters are stirred the better. Mr. Bragg's
friends will do the best for him they can, and it
is our honest conviction that he will gel lhe lar
gest vote in the Pee Dee country ever given to
any democrat while Dockery will fall much be

State and Esrospects ofluc European
We have seen a letter from a Parisian gentle
man famous for his prominent connection wiih
man) of the most stupendous continental financial
operations of the day, and whose judgement, hy-the-by,
in such matters is admitted to be hardly
second to that of any other man in Europe, who
writes that the current war is very likely to be ol
very long duration its termination depending al
most wholly on the fiat of Nicholas, who cannot
get out of it as matters now stand without fighting
it through without flinching. He writes further,
that England is beginning to be pestered to know
how to levy her taxes to raise the money she needs
for her share of the contest; and that though the
war is popular with her people, they are already
manifesting, each class and interest, a strong de
sire that the duty of paying the piper shall be shif
ted from its own shoulders on that of others. He
thinks that lhe continuance of the emigration ex
odus and the present high rates of wages, backed
by the contingencies of the war, will operate very
severely against the English manufacturing and
commercial interests; while the fact that the ports
of the BaPic and Black Seas must be kept in a
state of blockade for at least another season, will
keep up the existing extraordinary demand upon
the agricultural producing capacities of the United
States. According to his information, very little
of the recent enormous drain of specie from this
side remains in England, where money continues
exceedingly scarce, the Bank of England having
raised the ratio of interest to five per centum.
He, Frenchman like, hugs himself over the fact
lhat while the English banks are lamentably de
ficient in coin, the nerver-failing demand forsilke,
and satins, and bonnets, for the ladies, has caused
a recent increase in lhe vaults of the French banks
of twenty millions ol dollars 'n gold! He winds
up with a prophesy, that if we have no war in Dip
next five or ten years to come, the increase of the
United States in all the true elements of greatness
and prosperity will be well nigh equal to the most
wonderful stories related in Eastern tales; being
firmly ol (he opinion that, alter all, this country,
and only this country, is to profit by the existing
state of things in Europe. Wasiii?igton Star.
Small Fry. Why does not President Pierce
