FOB THE NORTH CAROLINA WlllU.
SOUND THK ALARM !
Those very " cute " yankee abolitionists,
the Massachusetts jiianufaeturersi, who know
the precise similarity of very ilin:j white
labor to in I-irnri,t(-ur black labor but
affect not to know it think now they are
' made men " from the fact that it has been
clearly shown to their too-ready (when dol
lars are concerned)- comprehensions, that
Asiatic labor, in the persons of the Chinksk
hordes, will place it beyond the power of
Southern manufacturers to compete with the
manufacturers of the North. Alarmed at
tlio steady increase of the manufacturing
interests of the South, the Northern nabobs
of the mills are ready to sacrifice the native
labor of tho country to their own insatiable
lust of accumulation. Already crowded
with cheap European labor, tho Northern
employers are not satisfied with payinsr a
starving price to their white slaves, but are
now gloating over the prospect of securing
the copper colored Mongols at SI per month.
The following extract from a Ions article
published in the New York Daily aud Week
ly 'I lines, under the signitieant allitteration
of " Cotton, Vane anil the (.','' will (jive
the view taken of the matter by an influen
tial Northern paper :
" California counts its Coolies by thou
sands. Their temple, to, an unknow n god
tiraees the land of gold ; the first pagan
temple since the mythic race of Aztecs van
ished from the continent. While their pe
culiar habits and prescriptive absurdities
amuse the Yankee, their better qualities are
not unappreciated. Their industry and iu
cemiity recommend them emphatically.
Their clieopnes ad Is to their value ; and
the State Assembly has just passed a bill
and if ho continues to make ucli favorable
impressions, a glorious triumph nwaitd him.
The time of his visit was exceedingly fortu
nate. Tho Dintriet Convention met there
on that day, and he had an opportunity of
seeing gentlemen from every portion of the
district. You need have no fears of the
Whigs in this portion of North Carolina. If
John Kerr cannot command their votes,
then there is little hope of them.

by the gentleman from Kentucky Mr.

(Mr. (ientry.) to introduce resolutions de

not 1 ecaiise he was not in favor of the ob

he thought they were trenching on the legi

that Mr. Kerr deserves to be tioveruor and
