The Wilis Convention.
The wliij party of this State, met in Convention
in Italeish, on t'le 4th iost. Governor Morehcad
was nominated for re-election, and Mr Henry Clay
for President, in 1814. This latter is what we
nhou!d call "taking time by the forelock." The
Convention must have forgotten the old adage about
th "forward bird," fee.
The document brought forth by tlie Committee
as the manifesto f the Convention, is drawn with
ability Geo. Harrison's death is given as the cause'
;f all '.heir broken pledges and t.ilsc promises.

The llfpoit chtr the Democratic party
with creating all the ro't'-n Hanks in the count'!
Tint's a grave charge, truly, but it does'nt happen
lobe the truth. The' give some facts in the case,
but not all. While we admit that the Democratic
party in some of the St:itcs have been instrumental
in creating too nniiy Hanks, We contend that the
whig afforded ready aid in the work, and that whig
L"gi.!atu "os its will as Democratic, were ho ways
backward in creating Hanks. Rut there is one
tiling for wlsi.h we think the Democratic party may
lake runic credit to themselves: tliey at least have
tin: merit of altering their course when they sec they
:irewro:iir; whilst the whiirs will not profit by ex
perience, but in the face of the unprecedented and
astounding corruptions of tho Hanking system in
the lace of the worst; than useless state ol the cur
rency the difficulty of exchange the general and
timvi-rsil distress of ihe country uphold, support,
aid and abet, and enco'-rage the Hanks in their law
les proceedings. Here we say lies the imprudence
lh: wor?B than suicidal policy ol the whig party;
and there tho merit of the Democratic party.
If the whig party have- fixed principles, where is
th' necessity of a leader? They say that in order
t keep together they must nominate a President.
Thi shows that their principles could not keep them
together, because they are too incongruous and un
stable, therefore they must have a leadet a MAN,
not principles to keep them together. By this they
have surrendered the argument that they go for
principles, not men.
They will find when too late, that a parly leader
docs not always lead to victory. We therefore wish
l"iem much joy with their leader, assuring them that
the Democratic party have no fear of Mr Henry
Claj's political influence. And here we'll drop the
subject for the present.
We fi.td almost forgotten to mention that the
Committee who drew the report and resolutions
must have been ashamed of it, as they have not, as
is iir-u t igned their names to it.
Iiook out! Take Warning!!
Will the people of the Cap-! Fear counties sell all
ibc'r interest, and smrender all their rights to the
demands of a party The Hoard of Internal I u
(irovciiierit consists of the Governor, Col. Cad.
Jfuic, ot Orange, and Col. Jesse Harper, of Ran
dolph, the ('ovrriior'.i cousin. Contrary to all for
mer precedent, the members of this board are now
residents of a single small district of country; ami
the great body of the people on ihe Cap Ftar arc
excluded from a share in the cou-icils of that Hoard.
Our farms and property may be taxed, and all the
public money will be squandered to direct the. little
t rade we've got, to other points, in-tead of improving
ihe advantages which nature has given to the Cape
Kear, unless we are vigilant betimes. We (eared
as much, whrn we aw th nomination of Col. Jesse
! larper, by his Excellency; and now we h ive heard
that sonic of the Executive Council hinted an objc
tion against Mr Harper, ui-on the ground that other
l irge sections of the Stiite were entitled to a repre
yentation in ihis Hoard; the Governor suggested,
however, that the liiic-mal Improvement money
w ould be all applied to a TURM'JK E through that
region; (we suppose up towards the Governor's lac
tm'v. from Ilal'-ih.) and for that very reason, Mr
Hatper was Ihe proper man, and he was chosen ac
cordingly! Of course we know net if this be true,
:is tin Council sits in private, and there is not a sin
gle De uocrat to tell the people what they do, but
we believe it, and should like to have it denied or
admitted, upon authority.
To us on the Cape Fear, it is an alarming rumor;
and as a laithtul centinel over the threatened ruin ol
Ihe Cape Fun; and of those waters, or counties,
whoso int rests are identified with ours, we feci
bound to give the warning.
If Governor Morchcatl is to fix his own family
in office, and th-Jii electioneer with a few favorite
Counties, upon the patronage of his place, let those
whom he intends to sacrifice know it in time to pre
vent their ruin.
Musks off! Masks off!! An open and manly
contest is all we ask or desire. If the Governor and
Ins cousin Jesse" are to slight the Cape Fear with
husks, as so6n as the election is over, manliness,
honor, and political honesty, demand that he shotrld
not f'.in;; soft corn to his party before it.
The Hillsborough Recorder, in speakin"- of the
Veople w ho live in Mr Henry's region, seemed to
suppose that they might merit the appellation of
"dogs;" and perhaps the Governor thinks like his
man of the Recorder, that the more he kicks the
Cape Fear people, the closer they will adltere to his
support. Perhaps so b ut perhaps not.
Agriculture
The citizens of Granville county have formed an
Agricultural Society. It is truly a laudable exam
ple, and should be imitated by every County in the
State. By the formation of Agricultural Societies,
the now barren fields of North Carolina might be
made rieh, productive farms. Our farmers are too
listless, earcfess, and inactive.

"Dyott's Oracle of Health."
This is the name of a monthly journal just pub
ished in Philadelphia. It advocates the doctrine of
every man being his own physician; gives the cau
ses, symptoms, and treatment of diseases, &c, in
terspersed with scientific matter. Dr. Dyott has
opened a large establishment in Philadelphia, nnd
keeps other medicines as well as those prepared by
himself. Subscription price for one year 25 cents !
and it is well worth twice the moiic'. .
CJood Times--Where are tueyt
Mr Clay, in his valedictory in the Sen.it", on the
31st u!t.,said he had always been accustomed to the
language of truth.
In his Speech on the 4th July, 1810, ot IIahover;
he said:
"The fact of Gen. Harrison's election, will of it
self, pcfwcrfullj' contribute to the security and pros
perity of the people. Confidence will uninediately
revive credit will be restored active business will
return, and the prices of products', arid tile wages of
Libour will rise."
Where's the man, woman or child, that will say
any of these things have taken place? Does hot ev
ery honest man say that the reverse has been the
ease?
Then the above is the language of prophecy un
fulfilledbut not of truth; and it is a question of a
grave nature, (as i elates to one who lias always been
used to the language of truth,) whether it was not
spoken regardless of any probability of its fulfil
ment, but merely for political effect.

Fact No. 16. The whig leaders in the South are
rapidly becoming the advocates of a protective ta
riff". This is a high toned federal measure. Let the
people recollect that but 3O0,O(J0 bales of cotton arc
consumed in the United States, out of the two tnil
tions which arc prod. iced. Let them also remember
that of the 300,000 w hich arc thus consumed in our
manufactories, a large portion of it was forineily
consumed in families, who made their own clothing,
and made homespun for market, which channel of
consumption is now nearly cut ofT. Let the people
remember also, that Henry Clay, tho nominee of the
whig Conve.it ion in North Carolina, is the great
champion of a protective tariff
Tell It not in Cath!

hivcSuilt it for S1G!!!
So much for Air Moreheads economy.
His "august Excellency" has purchased a French
Bedstead, and paid for it out of the people's money,
the extravagant sum of $125; and his Excellency
has also paid 72 of the peop'e's money for Towels'.
So much for Mr Moruh ad's aversion to luxurious
indulgence!
Reader, would 3-ou believe that this is the same
John M Morehcad who raised such a hue and cry
against Air Van Buren about Ice, French Bedsteads
and Towels? Strange as it may appear, he is the
man the same John M. Morehcad.
Whigs and Abolitionists.
The Democratic prc:s has alwa3's charged an al
liance between the whigs and abolitionists, and the
whig press has stoutly denied it; but we think here
is a p.tiagraph from the N. Y. Tribune, copied into
the National Intelligencer, (both whig papers,) which
will go far to establish the charge.
The National Intelligencer speaks of the Connec
ticut elect ion?, and then gives an article from the
N. York Tribune, (as information to be relied upon,)
summing up ihe causes of the w hig defeat, and
gives tho following as the first, foremost and most
lamentable:
"The JlholHionists have done the best they
could to ensure the triumph of that party which
would gag them to-day and hang them to-morrow,
if it had full power ; and have preveuted
a choice of some thirty or forty Whij Repre
sentatives." Cannot this be fairly construed to admit that the
abolitionists were always on the whig side before,
but have now gone to their opponents, and thus
turned the scales? Perhaps we might ask, w ill it
bear any other construction? And does it rot la
ment the loss of their powerful allies, the abolition
ists. This is proof from whig authority

Mr. Wright's Speech.
He said that Mr Clay had, upon a late occasion,
declared that the real question was, whether the in
debted States should be compelled to tax themselves
to pay their own debts, or whether the General
Government should exercise its more mild power of
indirect taxation to pay them. He then quoted the
Constitution to shew that it gave no power to this
Government to raise taxes to pay the debts of the
States, inasmuch as the "United States" could not
Hfe comtrued to mean the "separate States." Mr W".
said that a distinction had been sought to be made
between the money derived from the sales of the pub
lic lands, and other moneys of the Treasury; that
it was contended that the lands were ceded to the
United States for no valuable consideration, that
thsy were given for the specific purpose of paying
the debts of the Revolution, and that debt having
been fully paid, the lands should be considered as
held merely intrust for the States. Mr Wright
shewed the fallacy of this argument now, from the
fact that a very small fraction of the lands now held
by the United States, and remaining unsold, are the
lands tint were ceded by the States; that more than
nine-tenths, and probably nineteen-twentieths of
the whole of the public lands now held by the Gov
ernment, were purchased by the United States from
France and Spain, and paid for out ot the Public
Treasury of the United States. lie said it had
been conc'usively jhewn that the public lands, alone,
never would have paid the debt. But this argu
ment, he said, had nearly been abandoned, and the
following clause in the Constitution was seized on
to support Ihe measure of distribution:
"The Constitution of the United States, article 1,
section 8, says: 'The Congress sha!l have power to
lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts, and excises, to
p.iy the debts, and provide for the common defence,
and general welfare of the United States.'"
Mr W. contended,' that if this clause conferred
upon Congress any other power than the power to
"dispose of" Ihe territory or other "property belong
ing to the United States, to pay the debts and pro
vide for the common defence and general welfare,
then it was a power wholly without constitutional
limit or restriction. He contended t iat it was im
possible to separate the application of the grant of
power so as to make it apply to the lands alone,
and not to the "other property,'" stlch as the public
building, ships of war, &c
lie said that Mr Cay had, lately, tvlicn speaking
of the distribut'on, introduced the comparison of a
kind parent, dispensing portions of the property he
had accumulated to aid his needy and embarrassed
children; hut, says Mr Wright, he fbrgot that this
Government, w hich represents his supposed parent,
so far from having income or estate to spare, is now
in. extreme want, and wholly unable to support it
self. Mr Wright asked the Senator if he would
present the facts to the States as they really were?
Would he tell them that white he would give them
one dollar from the Treasury, it must be paid back
with the cost of collection added to it?
He then went on to show the natural tendency of
tlie policy of distribution; that it created a conflict
between the States and the General Government.
He asked if the policy, once adopted, was limited
to the land revenue? " He argued not, because the
constitutional power of Congress over that and over
all other portions of the public revenue was the
same.
He then slated that ihe excesses of revenue ac
cumulated from 1 333o IS'iG, produced an nppetite
for distribution in another form, that although enor
mous and extravagant appropriations were made,
still there were millions in the Treasury, unexpend
ed; arid that then a distribution of the"surplus rev
enue" wras resolved upon. He then argued to shew
that Ihis appetite Increased, and next year, 1S38,
when the lill providing for the defences of the coun
try c'arric up, a clause wire auclcd to it providing for
a second distribution of all money over five millions
which should be in the Treasury on the 1st 6f Jan
uary, 1833, wholly Without regard, (as before,) to
the appropriations which' might be outstanding and
unexpended on that day, which if was well known
would exceed ten millions, f How often hare the
whig party abused us because we neglected the de
fences of the country? This shews how ifnfair hey
are. How docs the Treasrfry of the country now
answer the calls upon it? asked Mr Wright: by
Treasury notes promises to pay; w hich promises,
he was told, were selling in the rharkct f r less than
money, and yet they were urged to lock up arrd keep
for the stales S25O,O0O' per month, being the proba
ble amount of the sales of the lands.
Matter firr reflection
We ask the people to read and reflect oh the fol
lowing facts. We arc sure that every man nurt
make up his mind that Jackson and Van Buren have
been most shamefully abused without just cause?
"The Contrast. When General Jack
son came into power in 1S29, there was a
national debt of $65,532,601, the annual in
terest of which amounted to nearly four mil
lions of dollars. This debt, together with the
interest, was paid off in seven years, as fol
lows :
Paid for Public Debt.
1S29, $12,3S3,S67

1834, 6,176,560
1S35, 58,190
Total, $65,532,001
In addition to paying ofFthis enormous pub
lie debt, this Democratic Administration de
posited in 1S3C and '37, with the States,
$2S,000,000, making in all over and above
the current expenses of the government, the
sum of 893,532,601. Such was the finan
cial result of the administration of Andrew
Jackson, which was constantly assailed by
Clay, Webster, Iiiddle, and the whig press of
the country, for financial blunders, and in
capacity ; for removing the deposites, aud
tinkering the currency. Compare this with
the administration of the whigs, which in two
years will create a national debt of $30,000,
000. These are facts which require no
commeut. They show who is justly subject
lo the charge of mismanaging the finances."
Hartford Times.
Repudiation.
We see by the papers, that Gov. Call, of Florida,
a whig, has repudiated bonds, (the paymentof which
was guarantied by Fiorida,) to the amount of $509
COO dollars, to the Pensacola Bank. The Governor
says that Florida is not bound to pay the bonds, un
til the means of the Bank, and each ot tlie stockhold
ers shall have been exhausted.
This is at least a squinting towards "repudiation,"
but as he is a whig, it is right, perhaps.
The conduct of the press and its correspondents,
of introducing the names of private gentlemen into
their discussions, has often struck us as being im
proper and indecorous. A recent instance, where
a writer for the Fayetteville Observer wantonly, and
as it appears, unjustly charged Mr Will. H. Hay
wood, jr., with being the author of certain questions
propounded to the Banks by a committee of the last
General Assembly, is a striking one. The object
was to disp.irs,se tlf (,airman of that committee,
and to cast ridicule on the Democratic party; and if
the writer had stuck to the truth, improper as was
the introduction of Mr Haywood's name, the case
would not have been so bad, but it seems from the
annexed letter of Mr H., to the Editor of the Stand
ard, that Ihe charge was false, "out and out." We
know not whothe correspondent of the Observer is,
but be he who he mav, w e envv him not the posi
tion he has placed himself in. We think, for one of
the "all the decency party," he must frel small he
surely looks small, in the eves of all ho?iorable men:
From the N. C. Standard.
3 The Register of April Slh contains the
following article :
' who's rigTht nowt
"The Fayetteville Observer says if is au
thorized by the correspondent distinctly tore
affirm the truth of his former statement, as a
matter xrilhin his f.norctede, and susceptible
of j9roy$thnt Mr Haywood did prepare thej
question that were sent to the Uanks by a
Committee of the last Legislature. Mr H.
must now admit the charge, or call for proof.
There is no middle ground."
The reader will notice that the Register
tries to lllng his challenge to Mr Haywood,
probably supposing he would not notice an
anonymous assault upon him. The Standard
when this counterfeited statement was first
made by Ihe Register, met it with a pledge lo
prove it was fnlse, if tho endorser would pro
duce the principal's name, or assume the re
sponsibility himself. We slated expressly
that Mr ll. had not authorized us to contra
dict it, but that with his leave or without if,
we had a right to do it, since it was attempt
ed to life it njrainst the Democratic candi
date ; yet the Register, it will be seen, passes
our challenge. To prevent any escape we
have now asked from Mr Haywood himself a
reply to this falsehood, and here is his letter
to us. Before you consult with yottr princi
pal, Mr Register, w ill you let his name dome
Will you protest his drafts hereafter unless he
comes from behind the mask ?
Thomas Loring, Esq.
Sir : You ask me " whether I prepared the
questions that were put to our Banks by the
Committee of the Legislature of 1840."
I answer that I nm not, and that I had no
agency in it directly nor indirectly. This ac
cusation against me is false out and out, and
if the persons who fabricated it will exhibit their
" proof," under real names of common re
spectability, they will find me ready and able
to refute it and expose ihe calumny no mat
ter by whom originated nor by whom it is re
affirmed nor by whom it may have been cir
culated. Yours, &c.
WM. H. HAYWOOD, Jr.
Raleigh, 9th April, 1S42.
The Register, we think, will agree with us
that ths anouymous character ot his friend
should no longer be preserved. He has made
his charge aaid persevered in it. He has
stated it upon his oich knoicledge, as the Re
gister says, for we never saw it in the Obser
ver. Mr Haywood certainly knows, and he
avers that this charge is false. It will not do
to hide now and shoot poisoned arrows at Mr
Haywood, and call this proof.
Now we happen ia know the poor attempt
on the part of the Register, to implicate Mr
Haywood, is not only without foundation, but
that the Chairman of the Committee was com
petent to the duties of his station ; and that
which the Register charges to Mr Haywood,
was, no doubt, tho production of the Chair
man hhmelf.

The Special Minister.
As Lord Ashbiirton has been sent to this country
by England as a negociator of our difficulties, some
"rceol lections" of him may not be uninteresting.
We find the following in ihe Index
"Random Recollections of the House of Liords,
published in 183."
"Lord Ashbiirton is as yet but imperfectly
known by his title 5 it will be sometime be
fore the pirblic eye and ear becomes so fami
liar with it, as they were wilh the name of
Alexander Raring. He is a man of very
considerable talent, mid possesses excellent
business habits. These qualities, added to a
heavy purse, made him a man of sorrre im
portance in the House of Commons. " In
the House of Lords, he does not promise to
acquire the same station. Had he been con
sistent as a public man, his influences in the
Lowet House would have been vastly greater
than it ever was. Rut he was remark-able for
his inconsistency in mere ways man one.
The changes his opinions underwent on the
question of the corn laws, aut) on topics more
strictly political, are known to every body.
Ruf the most awkwrtid part of the mailer was,
that his principles always changed at the same
time, and in the same direction as his in
terests. Heuce The Times used always to
distinguish hitn from all the other members,
by the appellation of 'lhe rcpresentat ?vc ot"
his breeches pocket." In 1815 he was the
idol of ihe populace of London, aud of all
large towns, because of his most strenuous
and persevering opposition to the corn laws.
Shortly afterwards, he became the proprietor
of a largo lauded estate, and from that mo
meut to this he has been one of the most
zealous supporters of those laws in either
House of Parliament. But the most singu
