The above named gentlemen declared themselv s

The Great Meeting.
The great meeting, (to which all eyes have been
turned, within the last few weeks,) between the
two candidates fr Governor, Louis D. Henry, the
Democrat, and John M. Morehead, present whig
Governor, took place at the Tow n Hull, at 1 1 o'clock
on Tuesday last. The speaking commenced at II
o'clock, each candidate to speak two hours, in turn,'
and closed at near half past nine o'clock. Mr
Henry speaking 5 hoars ami ten minutes, and Gov.
Morehead 5 hours and 25 minutes! Never before
did wc see a political audience so chained to their
speakers never did we see a more respectful and
respectable audience. It appears to us that had the
candidates talked till day break, not one man would
have left his plate. The whole space around, as
far as the voice of the speakers could Le tlistinct'y
heaid was covered with people! People not only
front Cumberland but from all the adjoining counties,
an we underhand.
That Mr Morehead is 'Enable man wo do not
d' nv. Thai he is just the man to use electioneering
slant;, we do not deny ; but that as an eloquent and
vivid speaker, we do deny that he is equal to Mr
Henry ; or that be is superior to him as an able and
acute debater, and we bog those who heard the dis
cussion to remember that Mr Henry icu laboring
'. under disease: And further, we are told by two
honorable men, whose names can be given if upcps-
sary, that Gov. Morehead said in their hearing that
if that was Mr Henry when sick, be should hate to
meet hirn when he was in health! We consider
this proof from the highest source of Mr Morehead's
We shall not tax our space, nor the patience of
our readers with irivini; a notice of the argument of
the candidates, because a friend has done that for us
in another column of this paper ; but w hat we must
do is, to not ice some of the gross perversions of the
Observer's re iew ; because we consider it due to
truth and to fairness, that such thould not go to the
world unrefuted, uncorrected unexposed uncen
Mr Henry ri-eeiv d quite as much, if not more
applause (rum the " auditory " than Mr More
head. Xotw th-ftaniliiig Mr Henry w.;s in no p'ight
in be humorous-, f r all know that when Mr EI. was
wwll, lie i. ever ma'fe a speech but abounded in hu
mor that madt' the sides of his audienc? tell; all
k now, w ho ha ve heard him, that lie has the peifect
command of his audience; he can chain them in
breathless silence, or he can split their sides with
laughter; yton to read the Obscrv cr would think
that Mr Henry was listened to w iih cold indiffer
ence, and that Mr Morehead gained a splendid
"victory" over bun; that Ike a game cock he
giounded him and stood crow ing upon his breast.
We pity the man that could let his personal fct lings
towards Mr Henry thus lead him from the truth.
The Observer pretends to viive the outlines of the
debate,. but all be gives is what Mr Moreheart said
to repel some charge Mr Henry bud made, without
giving one word, correctly, of ichat Jtfr lltnry did
say or did charge. We will make one single in
stance, (and they are all alike) of his unfairness:
Mr Henry charged that every man on the Literary
Doard is a whig. Well Mr Morehead said he did
not proscribe the Democrat-, for they'staid there G
or 8 months after he took possession, but when the
places became vacant by resignation, he appointed
all whigs; well that is exact y what is charged: that
note the moneys under tlie control of the Literary
Board are under the control of wbigs exclusively ,
nd not only whigs, Out whigs of the most objection
able character, whig orators, and whig Editors.
Mr Gales is said to be Bankrupt; the Governor did
not deny it.
Mrllenry, too, miL-.t have asked Mr Morehead
how he couhi feel safe in sitting under the roof of
that house, after repeating, in the selfsame spot in
184', "Ogle's omnibus of lies" to the people of North
Caro'ina; after telling them in 1840 of the "royal
magnificence" of the President's House, and the
next spring the whij party gave 36000 to buy more
furniture for the same house! Mr Henry might
have aked him if he was not afraid the very walls
would fall and crush him, and thus punish him as
fo.ne others have been punish' d by Providence
According to the whiu Mr Mangnm) tor uttf linn
thn; base ftlschoods ; but Mr Henry spared him,
inucS to our disappointment. He has since said that he
was m such pain nearly nil the time, except when
highly tveitcd, that he could not c -!!ect his thoughts.
Gov. Morehead shewed that he did not spend the
S00O dollars appropriated, but he did not shew that
all the repaus contemplated by the Committee were
made. No ; because they contemplated a new
roof and the vails to be fixed; but the old roof is
yet on, not a new shingle on if, and the old props to
keep the walls vp are there yet ! Is there any econ
omy in letting pu'hJic buildings goto wrack in this
way? Is anythingsaved bv it?
With regard to re $30 Mr Henry made by de
mandmH good money trnm the Government for his
pay for sei vict s, the following- letter will put that
matter to rest satis'actorily to all :
Correspondence of the Standard.
Washsgton, May 5,. 1842.
Dear Sir : T have examined into the matter
of Mr Henry's letter to the Secretary of State,
and into the charge of his having received
damages on a protested Government draft for
his salary. The letter I have thought a thing
too trifling for notice. The charge that Mr
Henry had collected damages from the Gov
ernment was a matter of more weight. I
state, on the authority of the Auditor charged
with accounts of this kind, " thai Louis D.
Henry has only received from the Govern'
me nt of the United Slates the precise com
pensation which the law allowed Arm." And
I state, on my own authority, that the account
as stated in the Register, by the writer who
signs himself " One of the People," to wit :
" Salary $5,000
" Cost of Protest, &c. 4 3 1
On the subject of Internal Improvements, too, the
Observer has given what Mr Morehead said, but
none of Mr Henry's explanations, or what he said,
The Observer nays u the Governor extorted from
Mr. Henry the admission that tie was in favor of a
U. S. Bank, up to the veto message in July 1 832."
This we pronounce false, utterly false. " Mr Henry
said in his first reply, that up to 1832 he was for the
Bank, and never since; so that no admission was
extorted it was not attempted to be concealed.
What MrHenry did say, and he said it willingly and
cheerfully, was, that he did not oppose the Bank of
the United States until the year 1832, w hen the
veto message of Gen. Jackson and other documents
satisfied him of the unconstitutionality of the Bank
and its vile corruptions. The Editor of the Obser
ver as a politician, (whatever he maj be as a man)
3unfair is reckless of frufA and will stoop to
a dirty act for a party end. The Editor of the Car
olinian dislikes to be thus plain but if politicians will
lie in this way, he feels that it is due to his party
and to his candidate that such statements shall not
go to the world without meeting the censure they
deserve. The Observer says, too, in the same par
agraph, in answer to Mr Morehead's question,
whether he did not know that the U. S. Bank, wts
breaking down t!i3 N. C. Banks, in 1827-8, said
" y-e-s he did know that!" MrHenry said no such
thing. What Mr Henry did reply was, that such
was the rumor, antl that he only knew it as a rumor
and not even in that way to the extent which fu
ture developments shewed.
It would take more time and space than can be
taken to go at length into the matter, so here we
stop, telling the Editor of the Observer, that as a
man we have no sort of ill -tiling towards him, but
if he will, as a politician, laise the just indignation
of the Democratic party, he shall be exposed-
IIow will tlic Election g-ol
To those who have asked howr the election will
go, we now take occasion to address an answer.
We firmly believe that the whigs will be beaten,
though not by a large majority. W e believe that
they see it themselves, and it takes all their nerve
to hide their feelings from their opponents. And
we further be'ieve that the whigs uVpend more upon
the fact that their candidate is now in office, and
the peo;le will not turn him out, than they depend
upon the strength of their party politics. We
believe that the bitter Warfare carried on by the
whig presses from the commencement of the cam
paign shews, plainly, that they are fearful of the result.
Rut there arc ceitain facts upon w hich we base
this belief; facts which, as before observed, cannot
be controverted. They stand recorded in. our favor.
We allude to the following ELECTIONS which
have taken place since the Presidential Election:
VIRGINIA. In the Spring election of 1311, the
whig majority in the Legislature was reduced from
10 to 4.
In the Spring e'eeiion of 1812, a Democratic ma
jority of S, boing a gain of 12 members.
INDIANA. The elections were only for mem
bers of th-j Legislature. The retult was, that the
whig major fy of 17 in the Senale, was reduced to 7;
while in the House, the whig majority of 55 (out of
100 members,) was changed to an opposition ma
jority of 1 1. All that saved the Senate was the fact
thai one half of ihe members held over being tl.c
t d fur two years.
Indiana gave Harrison a majority of 13,61)8! A
charge of thousand.
MAINE. Election for Governor and members of
the Legislature. The Democrat elect' d by 1200
majority. The whigs elected but 3 Senators, ar.d a
very small minority in the House. Maine gave
Harrison a majority of 410! Another change of
MARYLAND. The Democrats elected a Gov
ernor by 656 majority; ami the city of Baltimore'
wheie the great mass whig Convention was h Id in
1840, gave a majority against the whigs of 1049.
Hanison'j majority in Maryland was 4,775.
Another c' ang: of thousands.
GEORGIA. Election for Governor and Legis
lature. The Democratic majority for Governor wa3
4.HC0, and a Democratic majority of 53 in theLe
iriMature. Three JJemocratic vJo.i'rressmen were
also elected in place of three whigs resigned.
Harrison's majority was B.jbJ. .another change
MICHIGAN. Every man but 12, elected to the
Legitdaturc of 1841 w as a Democrat.
Harrison's majority in 1840 was 1,805
NEW YORK. For the Senate, 8 Democrats
and 3 whis elected. For the House 93 Democrats
and 28 whigs!!
Hariison'a mnjority 12,293. A change of thou
CONNECTICUT. -The majority of the Demo
cratic candidate over the whiff, was 1,949. In the
House, 124 Democratic members elected and 41
whigs; 15 Democratic Senators and 6 whigs!
Harrison's majority 6,324. A change of thou
sands, in the very heart of federalism.
TENNESSEE. The vote for Polk, (as Govern
or,) was 746 greater than Van Buron's vote, while
tho vote for Jones, (whig,) was 8,012 less than
ALABAMA. All the CountieB except five, show,
as the result of the gubernatorial election in August,
a falling off in the whig vote, compared with Ifarri
son's in November, of 4,820; while the opposition vote
only shows a falling off of J ,821, compared ith
VERMONT. In 12 counties, (all except Wind
ham and Grand 11,) tne official vote for Senators
shows an Aggregate of 21,8S4 for the whig ticket
and 19,7y tor ihe opposition. showing an in
crease of 3.G47 opposition votes, compared with the
last Presidential election, and a diminution in the
whis: vote f 6,726.
Harrison's majority 13,336. A change of thou
Other Democratic triumphs have taken place, in
all the large cities in the Union; but the above is
sufficient lo s.ww that a chanjre of sentiment to the
amount of hundreds of thousands has taken pi ice
since tne nara ciaer campaign: and we ask unon
what ground what possible pretence, can it be as-
The Governor, in the course of his remarks on
Tuesday, to!d his bearers that he had cert&Ta docu
ments to unfold, the contents of which would aston
ish them; yes, astonish them! The extravagance
they exposed was unheard of. We suppose he
meant the stuff that has been paraded in the Obser
ver for the last few months. Now whether all this
extravagance be true or not, we are not prepared to
say; but we very well know, as does every other
reader of the newspapers, that one of the charge has
been exposed by Gen. Jesup, and by Capt. Swords
himself, who was charged with making the expen
diture. They showed that the amount charged as
having been paid for one bushel of an article, was the
price which they paid, for one hundred bushels.
Now we have no doubt that if the rest of the charges
could be investigated, they would turn out pretty
much as the above a mere mare's nest.
But the Governor did not bring out his documents,
he intends to keep them for the Western counties;
and hear from him when we may, we predict he has
been using those documents. He knew it would
not do in this part of the State; people have
seen the correction; and besides they see that the
very enormity of most of the charges carry their own
refutation on their faces. The Western folks may
perhaps not have forgotten ihe fine tales he told
them in 1840, about extravagance. It will be hard
to make them believe any thing he says now. For
the man who deceived them in 1340, will do it in
$5,304 31" is false!
Having made this examination, as an act
of justice to Mr Henry, you are at liberty to
make what disposition of this letter you see
,We could but notice, as every one must have
done, how snappishly Gov. Morehead answered sev
eral questions put to bim by Mr Henry.
Now to eay nothing about the ill-breeding, and
want qf gentlemanly manners, that this conduct be
trayed, it was convincing proof that he was over
powered, and became iiritated. On several occa
sions he snapped Mr Henry op in this manner: "I'll
answer it directly sir, to your entire satisfaction."
This, spoken in an irritated manner, sounded very
harsh, and we were sorry that he showed his temper
The Governor sremed to be very much piqued at
"Tonimy Loring," as he familiarly called the Edi
tor of the Standard, who has probably oiven him
considerable trouble, but the taste of such remarks
was no doubt appreciated. As for his poisonous al
lusion to our humble self, he is welcome to all the
benefit of it. Any clown can make a company
Governor Morehead vs. Ex-Gov. Dudlej'.
In the speech of Governor Morehead here on
Tuesday last, he told ihe fxxrpKs that when he took
possession of the Executive mansion, there was lit
tle or no furniture in it. Now we ask and we
should like to be informed on the subject, what had
become of the furniture purchased for the use of Gov
ernor Dudley. If we are rightly informed, $5,000
had been expended in the purchase of furniture du
ring Gov. Dudley's administration. And yet, when
Gov. Morehead succeeds him, he tells the people
that there was little or no furniture in the Govern
ment house. We will not charge these gentlemen.
as the whigs did Mr Van Buren, that they removed i
the furniture; but we do say, that there is some mys
tery in this matter that oueht to be explained. We
ncline to think that Gov. Morehead is practising a
deception on the people of this State, as he has done,
n the poor attempt to make them believe that he
saved the State $1800 in repairs on the Governor's
palace, w hich have never been made.
There were some parts of Governor Morehead's
speech on Tuesday last, that really excited feelings
of disgust and contempt. He took particular pains
to eulogise his Cousin Jesse, his brother James, and
the boy, Pr or lie) nolds. Pryor, he says, had been
charged by the Loeofoeos as being scarcely able to
write his name, but he could assure the gentlemen,
that Pryor could not only write his name, but thai
he could write down ' 1 ommy J.oring." Well! if
this-be so, Pryor must indeed be a smart child; Mr
Loring is an able political writer, and has, we think,
given some trouble to the Governor himself; and he
is an exceedingly fortunate man, to have ro accom
plished a clerk as Master Reynolds. This ac
counts, we suppose, for his Excellency's being able
to leave the Executive office to go about the country
electioneering he leaves as his substitute. Master
Pryor, to transact the duties of Governor. Pryor,
is now a sort of factotum, a "Caleb Q.uotem" he is
so smart a lad that he can play ihe part of Governor,
and private secretary, anu write down "tommy
If the people believe all his Excellency said in com
mendation of his kin, they would think that the Go
vernor, his brother James, his cousin Jesse and
Pryor Reynolds, formed a "quartette" of the bright
est geniuses that the world ever saw, Verilv, Gov
ernor John M. Morehead is a very modest man.
The Mudisonian in "an appeal to the whigs"
makes the following precious confession
Yet it was thought expedient to accept the
services of that portion of the Whig party and
the Whig press (their cognomen had often
been changed to suit the times) which had
advocated the recharter of the U. S. Bank.
Yet these presses, though bauk-established,
bank-bought, and bank-fed, were required to
abstain from agitating the subject during the
canvass. This they reluctantly agreed to, af
ter ascertaining that if this point were not
yielded, the Harrison party would dispense
with their services altogether. This matter
was settled at Baltimore. The great con
vention was at one time in danger of disas
trous dissolution, in consequence of the per
tinacity of some of the bank advocates The
difference was compromised, however, and
it was mutually agreed upon to say nothing
upon the subject, .ind nothing icas ever
said by the whigs in favor of a bank, in any
anti-bank section of the country."
This establishes, forever, by whig evidence, the
charge so ofien made by the Democratic ores, that
the whig party electioneered against a Bank, in
anti-Bank sections of the country, and for it in Bank
scctiuns, &c. Such conduct cannot be approved
by honest people.

Un i-unday morning last, the approach of his Ex-
li . t - .
cenency was neraiaea lo tnis community through a
letter to his Excellency's wiosr private arid confiden
tial Jriena and counnollor. Upon it receipt, 4hn
private and confidential friend, &.c, lost little or no
time in making arrangements for the "mg" escort
On Monday morning, the quiet of our little village
was disturbed by the tramp of horses and the tread,
of mules, while a numerous, respectable, intelligent
and patriotic portion of the community marched forth
to meet the Governor, headed by the aforesaid jt
and confidential friend, and consisting of
4 middle aged gentlemen, in a batouchc and buggy

5 very young men, on horse-back.
When they met the stage, they found his Excel

he was immediately shaken and aroused, and
with some little difficulty transferred to the buggy of
the commander aforesaid; fulfrlmg, thereby, Ihe
Scripture proj.hecy, "one shall be taken and the
other left." And soon the "Clarendon Bridge" is
made to groan beneath this mighty pressure, while
the cry on every lip proclaims "they come." Every
door is thrown wide all windows ate hoisted, while
even the little negroes in the streets waved their
'kerchiefs to the breeze. The waiters in the
hotel are in speedy operation, treading on each
other's toes in their haste, and oversetting the
bar-keeper, while tho "soap and towels" are soon
brought to bear; so that shortly afterwards, in an
swer to an enquiry after his health by some one of
his visitors, the Governor replied, instinctively, that
he felt much better since he had "shaved and to ashed
and got cool." And thus "came he as the warrior
comes" and thus arrived this extraordinary caval
cade tLis mighty procession thus was this ?rand
en tree made.
The effect of this mockery, was plainly visible in
the countenance of his Excellency; he looked, as he
doubtless left, chagrined and mortified.
Now we have no objection to any and all proper
respect paid to the Chief Magistrate of the State.
whenever he sees proper to visit us: but we do object
to such sycophancy to a candidate seeking office at
our hands, and that candidate too, a Governor, who
has forgotten the duties of his station and neglects
to attend to them, but prefers to ride over the State
begging votes, and is willing to be paradod about

serted that public sentiment in North Carolina has
not undergone a similar change? Is there one sin
gle circumstance to justify such a pretence?
It may be said that the people of North Carolina
are slower to move than the people of other States,
and that all past experience testifies to the fact. In
answer to that, we say that never before, were the
people so badly so barefacedly humbugged and
cheated, as they were in 1840, by ihe whig party.
In support of this assertion, we beg our readers to
remember the evidence we laid before them m our
last two publications. There they beheld the promi
se before the election, and the performances after it.
We day that if the people of North Carolina are
like other people, they will not support the whig
party in the comins campaian. They have the
light of the experience of 14 other States before their
eyes, and it certainly cannot be that they will not
profit by it.

that he is of too changeable a chars 6ter, or too mis

He showed that the whig party were responsible for

have a majority, a large majority in both branches
of Congress, instead of doing their duty, they are
miserably engaged in reviling and abusing each
other each endeavoring to stamp upon the other,
stigma, opprobrium, and disgrace. Mr Henry con
tinued to expose their reckless proscription for opin
ion's sake cited instances within our own State
and under our own eye, about which there could be
no mistake. Mr He.iry fully exhibited the peri's of a
funding system, an overacting, enormous banking
system, and a high tariff protective sys-lem how
that these would create a class of associated wealth,
opposed lo the people would raise a standing aris
tocracy arrayed in deadly hostility against the best
interests of the Democracy. He proved from histo
ry that the U. S. Bank had not regulated but had
injured exchanges that it had controlled and cor
rupted the State institutions so that they greatly
needed reformation; and he established the fact, that
Gov. Morehead favored a (J. S. Bank; favored a
high tariff; favored a funding system; favored the
Distribution; favored taxation; favored an aristoc
racy; was a Clay man in the wnrst and most dan
gerous acceptation of the term. Mr I lent v went on
in an able, eloquent, and most feeling manner, to
show iroin an array ot circumstances which must
have struck every one forcibly, that the judgment of
frovidence had fallen on this corrupt and faithless
party that Lite rescue of our country from their
hands, has been none other than the hand of God.
Mr Henry then successfully contradicted the false
and ungrounded charges, that he was in favor of ex

when he did err in '33, he err d with the wisest and
best of the whig party that with this same party he
corrected this error in '38, and that in the classifica

He didn't answer.
Mr Henry told Gov. Morehead about the whig
party keecing their real sentiments hid, in 1840, in
relation to a Bank what Mr Badger had said at
Granville that Gen. Harrison nor any of his friends
were in favor of a tariff or a Bank, &c. When Gov.
Morehead come to answer, he never said a word in
reply to it. He knew it was truth. He could not
et over it by any mancEuvre, and galling as it was,
he let it go unanswered.
We have heard several gentlemen say that the
closing scene of Air Henry's speech, when he drew
together the incidents connected with the death of
Gen. Harrison, was among the greatest bursts of
eloquence they ever heard. We heard many say
that Mr Henry is a great man. In intellectual pow
ers he is certainly great; and if he only bad the iron
constitution of Gov. Morehead, to follow him and
reply to him, we should be as sure of bis election as
we can be of any thing.
to ratify it- -
For the Carolinian.
The two candidates for the office of Governor of
the State, met in this place on Tuesday last. Gov.
Morehead is a stout, athletic, robust man, of iron
constitution, and in excellent health Mr Henry
h--id been very ill in the West, had returned from
thence Weak, debilitated, and suffering very much
fiorii a serious injury which he received some 2 or
three years ago. Ho was, however, anxious to meet
Gov. Morehead, and ill and feeble as he was, and as
his opponents will acknowledge he was he deter
mined to meet the Governorat every hazard and un
der ali disadvantage and well and nobly has ho
su-tained the contest, truly has he sustained himself
w ith a skill and ability hardly expected by his most
sanguine friends. There were, at times, in his ef
forts, bursts of eloquence which riveted the atten
tion of his hearers, so that not a breath arose to dis
turb them while their dose was responded to by
Gov. M. led off at II o'clock. This speech was
put out ss a little feeler, an educer to draw from his
opponent the charges he had and intended to make,
against bis administration. Altogether, it was a
small nnd weak effort consisting mainly of an at
tempt to repel the charces ot proscription, false pro
mises, &c, preferred by the Democratic party of
E. Freeman and little Fryor. Mr Henry then met
him on St.te politics proved conclusively that he
had violated bis pledge to be the Governor of the
State and not of the parfv laid before the people his
heedless, violent proscription, in the very teeth of his
promise to "proscribe proscription" exhibited his
unlawful extravagance in the face of bis solemn
pledge to administer the Government in an econom
ical manner to retrench and reform exposed to
the seorn and contempt it so richly merits, the Gov
crnor's miserable plagiarism of Proffitt's wit, and
his contemjitible deuling in the "ice, soap, towels,"
&c , of the President's palace, w hich he so lavishl y
did in 1840. and proved to the world by Morehead's
own acts and doings since, that his course in pur
suing the very conduct he then considered criminal
established his condemnation. Gov. Morehead
then made, we do him the justice to say, an inen
ious effort to defend himself, but there had been
stubborn facts cited by Mr Henry, which he couid
not surmount, oppose, or evude, and be fled to a dis
cussion of general national politics, and branched
out on the old track the extravagance of Mr Van
Buren'o administration, and arraigned again this
much abused man, as though he were on trial again
before the people. There were many equivocations
resorted to by his Excellency, of so glaring a kind
as to strike the attention of every one acquainted
wit'i the facts; one we are prepared to show: he in
troduced the report of Mr Wood bury, the former
Secretary of the Treasury, to prove the amount cf
expenditures, and extracted therefrom something re-
Ilating to a certain 8 millions received in Bank bonds;

used the preceding very eight millions to make out
the forty introduced if into the calculation and
made it an item of the addition. Had we the doc
uments we could prove many other such deceptions.
In addition to this be quoted garbled extracts, isola
ted sentences, made them bear a different construc
tion from that they were intended, and made thereon
his own calculations. But Mr Henry, thoush very
much enfeebled by his previous effort, and evidently
suffeing under excruciating pain, arose and met
him on national politics, and we are happy to say
he here completely demolished the Governor. He
fully exposed to public view Gov. Morehead's ex
traordinary, glaring inconsistency how that in
1832 he was for Gen. Jackson now he is against
