Moore in the last Legislature to correct him
if it was not so, that 37 appointments to office
were made by the last Legislature, and that of
them 36 were filled with whigs, and that
David W. Stone the only Democrat elected
to any office was a relation of his Excellency
Gov. Morehead ! ! He then adverted to the
charge that Mr Henry had beeu a federalist,
and showed that Mr Henry was in favor of
the last war, which was the te.-t question be
tween the parties that as early as :24 he was
united with Gov. M. in the support of Gen.
Jackson against Henry Clay. That in '28
they were both again battling under the same
banner against the federalist. That in '32

Gov. Morehead is administering State affairs
iu the most honest and economical manner,
while it should be employed in detecting and
defeating insidious plots to leave us with but
the name of a State Government, while its real
existence is swallawod up iu the encroach
ments of Federal power. Awake, oh people!
and rouse your senses to the real and alarming
state of public affairs. Most of our sister
States are already in their flight, from Sodom
while we are tarrying in the plain. As a
North Carolinian, I fV.el my check crimson
with shame when I sec so many of my fellow
citizens swallowing the whig delusions, and
rejoicing in the insidious smiles of their ora
tors, while the snares they are laying for Us arc
so palpable, and white a majority of our fellow
izens in almost every other State, have de
tected and are escaping from them. A Unit

of the proceeds of the sales of the public

in his address adroitly keep out of view the
subject of protection, aud intimated, although
he did not put the distinction very boldly forth
that he was onlv for countervailing duties.
But one thing is" perfectly certain, that Mr
Clav is an opn, avowed advocale of the pro
tective system, and that he is the announced
candidate of the whig party (in North Caro
lina at least) for the Presidency, and as Gov.
Morehead avowed, his candidate Gov.
Morehead will vainly, therefore, strive to throw
off the weight which being favorable to a pro
tective Tariff justly places upon him. 1 he

Direct taxation, before manyyears elapse,

of opposition which some liberal members
have chosen for their resistance to the mea

Heading Captain Tyler
We have heretofore adverted to what seem
ed to be the policy of the whigs that of send
ing bills to Mr Tyler against which he was
fully committed, and thus lay him under the
necessity of using the veto, or incurring the
imputation of inconsistency. We have given
what seemed to be an instance of this, in the
temporary revenue bill, which has gone to the
Senate, and which violates the compromise,
and also the condition on which the land dis
tribution bill was passed.
We have now to point lo another instance
ofthe same policy: that ofthe mandamus and
fractional representation bill sometimes call
ed the apportionment bill now passed both
with the same clause iu it for Svhich General
Washington vetoed the apportionment bill of
1790, and against which Mr Tyler voted se
ven times, in the Senate ofthe U. S. in 1831
and 1S32. Mr Tyler then voted against the
fractional representation iu every form in
which it could be presented; and in such com
pany as Tazewell, Troup, White, King, For
syth, Mangum, &c. and against Mr Webster,
who was then an advocate for fractional rep
resentation. It was then opposed ou consti
tutional grounds in the Senate, and finally
defeated iu that body by the Senate's receding
from its amendment. On the question of re
ceding in the Senate, moved by Judge White,
the vcte was 26 to 19, Mr Tyler beiug where
he always had been, and where Gen. Wash
ington and his cabinet were against the
fractional representation.. He now has the
same question to pass upon again, coupled
with auother that of the mandate to the States
to district themselves.

i Trouble at Memphis.
Serious difficulties occurred at Memphis,
Tea., on the lst inst., which resulted in
lossof life. The particulars, as we gather
then from a long statement in the Memphis
Enquirer, were as follows :
Aa attempt was made by the owners of a
flat boat to resist the payment of dues (or whar
fage. The boat was occupied by John Tres
ter and his two sons, James and Jacob, from
Marion county, Indiana, Benjamin Van
Scoice, Thos. F. Hardisty and Charles Neigh
bors who abused the wharf master in round
terms, when he made application for payment.
The May or was informed of the facts, and is
sued a writ, summoning the "flat-boatmen to
his office for tri.il. Mr Locke, the towu
coDsfable, undertook to serve the writ, but, on
endeavoring to board the boat, the elder Tres
terMrew a pistol and warned him off. An ex
ecution was immediately issued, and the
town-constable summonod a posse to aid him.
Locke, the officer, and his men, got into
the Ferryboat and followed the flatboat, and in
a short time, overtook her. Locke and a
Captain Rujh, as they approached the flatboat,
ordered the Captain to submit and pay the de
mand. The latter replied, " Go to h II !"
and used other abusing and insulting language.
The flatboat hands pushed off the ferry boat
nithikg and poles, keeping her off for some
tirti3jpntil they filially grappled the flalboat.
Captain Ruth ordered his men not to fire un
less it should be absolutely necessary. The
flatboatmtm had their guns, poles and a.xea by
them ready for use. Captain Ruth jumped
aboard the flalboat, ant! was knocked down
with a heavy stick. Another man who follow
ed him was also knocked down. At this
juncture the guns from the ferry boat were
fired, and the cider Trester was severely
wounded. After some slight skirmishing, the
The Enquirer states that Trester died of
his vvounds on the following day, and was

forded him. One of his sons received a se
vere sword cut on the arm, but is about to re
cover without serious inconveuience. Neigh
bors also received a slight cut on the head
from the same weapon.
The occurrences were, of course, highly
exciting to the spectators. Rut when to this
was added the impression, which, however
originating, spread like wild fire through the
city, that the other flat-boatmen at the landing
were arming to rescue Trester and his party,
the excitement was tremendous. The Mem
phis Blues turned out en masse, and in every
direction were to be seen armed men rushing
to the scene of ac tion, determined that the su
premacy of the law should be maintained at
every hazard. Fortunately, however, no dis
position to interfere was manifested by the

The Axi3I.il Wheel. The New York
Mechanic says that oue ofthe most dexterous
feats ever performed for juvenile recreation is
the rolling ofthe animal wheel, as performed
by some ofthe gynasiums in Italy, which is
as follows : Two boys nearly of the same size
aud usually from ten to fifteen years of aje,
lasn loeir bodies togetner, bade to back iu
which, however, they are generally assisted by?a
and four feet are nearly at equal distances
from each other, projecting from a common
centre like the arms of a wheel or rather what
is in mechanics called a spider. They then
mauage to poise therfrselves on one foot and
one hand, and, by a sTight exeition of each
limb by its turn, commence rolling wheel
fashion, which they will continue with incred
ible speed, directing their course so as to de
scribe a circle of twenty or thirty rods, and re
to the place from whence they started. This
feat is seldom performed, and on that account
excites the more curiosity, and never fails to
call together a crowd ; and those who perform
it are usually rewarded by a variety of presents
from the admiring spectators.
Murders by JV egroes 4 murderer hurnt.

particulars of a series of murders in the
