We were not mistaken in the opinion that

would not go for a Convention to -amend the

respectable Whig "journal, has thus far declined
to raise the name of Gen. Dockery; and we do
not see how Col. Joy ncr, with his opinions on
the subject, can support him. It is rumored,
too, that Hugh Collins, Esq., of Chowan, is
opposed to a Convention, and will take ground

The East has nothing to gain and every thing

TThy Change Democratic Ht&tcft 1
When in by-gone days wc were toiling lfthe
dim light of the midnight lamp, well do we're
member the discouraging prospects which sur
roiyided us on every side, and the painful anxie
ty felt for the success of the principles of the
great Democratic party. Our State govern
ment was in the hands of a bloated Aristocracy,
reckless and proseriptivc beyond our powers of
description. Every whig measure was lauded
to the skies, and every Democratic measure re
presented to be fraught with the most ruinous
consequences to the people. The people were
told that without a National Bank we could

the credit system would be destroyed, property
sacrificed, and generally ruin ensue. If Demo
crats were elected we were told the public lands
were to be given awaj''to the new States ; that
if the Independent Treasury and the Democrat
ic policy of reducing the Tariff prevailed, then
all the great interests of the country would be
destroyed. Reader, do you remember the aw
ful pictures of ruin which were the theme of
whig orators and whig newspapers? Demo
cratic principles were not only abused and mis
represented, but promiuent members of the De
mocratic party were fiercely assailed with false
hoods, with a view to proscribe them from socie
ty or force them to surrender their long cher
ished principles. If the Democrats started a
candidate for Governor, the whig press and the
leaders of the whig party would effect to treat
him as a presumptuous upstart and raise the
cry of "dehwgrigut" v-.This Aristocracy became
so arrogant from a succession of triumphs, that
during the existence of a war, commenced
against the United States by Mexico, they ac
tually declared their own country to be in the
wrong. The whig candidate for-Governor de
clared he would not give an old pencil for Cali
fornia. Under such a reckless warfare had the
Democratic party of North Carolina tox-ontend.
No party could have triumphed under such cir
cumstances, except a party whose principles
were founded upon truth and justice. -But
a brighter day has dawned, and victory
has perched on our banner. Error has fled be
fore the lights of truth and experience; and the
Democratic party is in power. We would ask,
what prediction of the Whig '..party' has been
fulfilled? , Has the want of a National Bank
ruined the country? Have the public lands been
given away, as the Whigs predicted twenty
years ago would be the case if Democrats had
the power? Has not Democratic policy made
large acquisitions to our Territory? Has the
Su!-Treasury ruined the country? Has the
Democratic party in regard to the Tariff ruined
the manufacturer aud impoverished the Farmer?
Is not the country happy, prosperous and free?
As if to show the. madness and folly of the
Whig party in declaring California to be worth
nothing, treasurers of gold unexampled in the
history of the world have been pouring into our
midst to enhance the prosperity of this great
Again, we would inquire at what period in the
history of North Carolina has she been more
prosperous than under the '"present Democratic
State administration? What interest is less
prosperous tnan it was under any Vhig admin
istration? Have not your public improvements
increased? What administration has done more
to produce reform and advance equal rights ?
Under what administration did the people ever
receive as much School money? Under what
administration did your State Bonds ever sell
for a premium, or when did the credit of the
State ever stand so high? Under what admin
istration of the Whig party.-has so much been
done to develope the wealth and resources of
the State? Under what administration has the
prosperity of the State increased so rapidly as
under the present Democratic administration.. of
State affairs? For what then, wc ask, do the
Whigs wish to change our policy? The answer
must be for power and office alone! Will the
people forget their own interests just to gratify
the ambition of Whig politicians ? We answer,
they will not. They have been too often de
ceived by the promises of the whig politicians.
Then brother Democrats we have the facts
on our side; our cause is just; let us take cour
age, and do our duty in the coming contest, and
our efforts will be crowned with a glorious vic

the prosperity and the rights of the people.

The ensuing parody npon the old and popu
lar song of " Ben Bolt" is not only very good
as a parody, but it includes a lesson that may
reach the heart of some young inebriate, whom
more serious, souer counsels migni iau 10 rcacn:
Oh don't you remember the boys Ben Bolt,
The boys with noses so red,
Who drank with delight whenever they met,
And always went drunk to bed?
In the old grave gard, in the edge of the town,
In corners obscure and lone,
They have gone to rest, & the gay young sprigs
Have dropped off one liy one!
Olr don't you remember the jng, Ben Bolt,
And the spring at the foot of the bill,
Where oft we've lain in the summer hours,7
And drank to our utmost fill?
The Spring is filled with mud, Bent Bolt,
And the wild hogs root around,
And the good old jug, and its whiskey sweet,
Lies broken and spilled on the ground.
Oh don't you remember the tareni, Ben Bolt,
And the bar keeper kind and true ;
And the little nook at the end of the bar,
Where we swallowed the rum he drew?
The tavern is burst to the ground, -Bent Bolt,
The bottles are cracked ami dry,
And of all the boys who ' spreed ' it there,
There remain but you and I.
PoncKLAtN'. We understand the contractors
on the end of the Central Road from this place
to Goldsboro' have met with a serious obstacle
in laying the superstructure on a hundred yards
or so of the road a few miles below Neuse river
that much of a deep cut being through a bed
of porcelain clay, which is bo soft and mushy
that the timbers upon it soon sink out of sight.
Its depth lias not been sounded, and doubts arc
entertained whether substantial works can be
erected over it. Though it may greatly em
barrass the builders of the road it may turn out
to be a valuable discovery, and good may come

The xkxt Cnor.- Wc see notices in the pa
pers, advising farmers to plant large spring
crop!" as the inducements held out are more
flattering than at any previous time. We need
not tell our farmers, that, in our opinion, pro
duce of every description will hereafter com
mand high prices, even in the home market, as
they seem to be aware of the fact, and are mak
ing arrangements for large and increased crops.
Our facilities of transportation should also be
taken into consideration, as the demand for
American brcadstuffs abroad is likely to continue
for years, or at least until after the production
of another crop.
The weather, thus far, has been unfavorable
for early plowing and sowing, but we hope our
agricultural friends will shortly have a few-weeks
of fair weather, to enable them fully to prepare
theirground for the summer's crops. Salem

"William Walker is a native of Ttiux -born
at Nashville, we believe, ttlierc his f.if!, r
still lives, secretary of an insurance company
there. His father, we think, is a Scotchman
by birth, although long n resident in the I 11 i ted
States. The Scotch features are strongly mark
ed in the features of the Hon, Who isoflirht
blue eyes, face much freckled, but with an air
of unmistakable energy with which his v !io!
character corresponds. He was originally in
tended for the medical profession, and Mu li .i

After spending' fcvcr:U years in I'ur. p. , iu
which he improved and disciplined nuintclln t
naturally strong, he came to the city of .Ww
j Orleans with the intention of 2r;ic Ii nir. Ilnl
I his impatient disposition and his passion fur pu!
uu mi-, iei mni 10 tiiuiige mat purpose; ami
forthwith applied himself to the ftiiy ol t f,
law, and prepared himself diligently for the bar.
"The bar did not find occupation cnou-li for
him; and being a vigorous thinker, and a ready
writer, and full of :. informal ion upon all (opk
of current interest, he' took interest in u u
papers and politics, and in the winter of 1 s 1:-.
'411 became directly connected with the n
of this city, as one of the proprietors ns;if !i
torsofthe Crcscr.nL. The enterprise did not pre
profitable. The paper was sold out toother
parties in the fall of that year, and Mr Walker
soon after followed the tide of emigration to
San Francisco. He resumed his profession
there, at the same time continuing his pursuit -as
a journalist. In one of the disputes whirb
grew out of his newspaper articles, he became
involved in a duel with one of hi cotemporaries
in which he was wounded. He acquired furthr r
prominence by a pnblic controversy with one of
the State Judges, by whom he wan committed
for contempt, and gained mndi reputation for
resolution and ability in the manner with whieU
he conducted the effort to obtain the im
peachment and removal of the Judge for tyranny
and misconduct in office. Mr Walker argued
the case before the Legislature, with a power of
logic and learning whieh won him much esteem.
"The attempt failed. Mr Walker then ino
ed into the interior, practicing law at Marysville,
we believe since whieh we have heard of him
only incidentally, until this expedition .brine . -him
out as proclaimed President of an extem pore
Republic in the California- neninsula.
J "Mr Walker is a young man et, to li i-
passcd through all these vicissitudes, lie i
of small size and slight t frame, buUcrcct, vigo
rous, used to athletic exercise, very nctiw 'm
habits of personal bravery, approaching to rash
ness, and an inflexibility of will in the proven -tion
of his purposes which nothing external can
shake. He is of the best stuff out of whi h
revolutionizing bodies ure made. We de""ire t
say. nothing of the merits of his present under

At the close of a season of signal prosperif v.
the King of Israel reviewed the dealings of God
with him, and thus gave utterance to llir f . i
ings of his grateful heart. " Tit,u ercimrst ,
year -irifh thy goodness" so would the Tru-te
of the Wilmington Seamen's Friend Society n
cognise and record the divine goodness w'hieh
has crowned the first year of their active opera
tions. The origin of the Society was but. the
little spring, bubbling up away iu the mountain
so small that a single ox on a .summer dav
might have drained it dry; but in its (low f. r
a while lost underground, aud there reappear
ing other kindred streams have fallen in, and
now it i. n respectable brook, with the pro pr i
of swelling to a river to make glad the City '
our God. -
To secure the objects of the Society, viz: Un
social and moral improvement of seamen, and
their humane treatment, it wax deemed fund i
mental to -establish a 'good Sailer's Honn n
Boarding House of good character, where they
should be protected in their money and moral-.;
where they should respect themselves ami gain
the respect of others; where the sick, the vs reek
ed and destitute may be provided for, and hIk jv,
with a divine blessing, their feet may be turn d
info the pathway of life. A commodious lot.
and house for this purpose have been jmrcha h l
and partially occupied, L tensive repairs, ne d
ful to put the house in complete order, so thai
the stores underneath may furnish an annua;
rent towards its support, and rooms be fitti 1 t
accommodate at one time at least 100 men, lia 1
been commenced, and will be carried on to com
pletion, as fast as the means can be obtain..
A financial statement, both of the receipts ami
exenditures of the Society, is herewith s'it,

$8501 45, and the expenditures $7, 1"G s;
leaving in the Treasury $544 -"5. Be.-ide
there are good subscriptions payable on call t ,.
the amount of $3,250 74. It is estimated th:. t
$5,000 more will be indispensable to mak- t!.

to furnish the rooms.
To the Ladies' Seamen's Friend Society, x
ccntly organized for this purpose, we look wit It
entire confidence for their labors of love in tie
last named amount; and to the continued in
defatigable labors of our Agent, the Rev. W.
J. Langdon, together with our own co-operation,
to secure the former.
The substantial cordiality which he und. tie'
cause of seamen have everywhere received ha,
greatly cucouraed our hearts. Our pn -.-a
prevailing sentiment is that wc are pledged to .
work not as a charity but as a debt long- dm
to our brethren of the sea, which, with divim
aid, must be carried ou to completion. We
earnestly covet both the honor and reunrd
co-operating with the American Seamen's Frier d
Society and all kindred institutions in gatla 1 -iug
the harvest of the sea; and when the r.l.m.
dance of the sea shall have been converted, v,
