' OF ,
NORTH CAROLINA PRESBYTERIAN
The Presbyterian Church in Xorth Carolina
has long labored under a serious disadyantaiffe
from the want of a journal to advocate her
claims and represent her interests; It is esti
mated that onlj 1000 Presbyterian Weeklies
are tafcen in the bounds of our three Presbyte
ries. We have 13,000 Communicants, anf lfc
is safe to infer that there are 30.0 OO-J?
ana net . .:&r thau
any Synod Sonth or West of Pennsylvania,
Our sister States on the North and South,
neither of which has a membership so large aa
ours, publish the Central, and the Southern
Presbyterian, for the benefit of their people.
The time has come when the Presbyterian
Church in North Caroliua should likewise do
her duty to her children. It is a conceded and
important fact, that hundreds of our members
will take a State paper who will take no other.
The Paper is needed to be the organ of our
Synod and Presbyteries to elevate and en
lighten the piety of our membership by diffusing
evangelical knowledge to promote the cause
of Education to develope theltalents of our
Ministry, and to strengthen the attachment of
our people to the soil and sanctuaries of their
own State. -
If our Church in other States, and other
Churches in this gjtate, can supply their mem
bers with a religious journal, why may not we?
Are North Carolina Presh; Brians inferior in
talent, energy and patriotism'to their ueighbors
on the. North or South, or to Christians of
other denominations at home? With the
same or better opportunities of accomplishing
this work, shall we leave it undone? In the
language of one1 of our most able and useful
VIinisters, an adopted son of our State, "It
ought to have been undertaken 20 years ago,
but it is not too late to begin to do right."
In the last two or three months, a fund of
about $5000 has been subscribed as a perma
nent capital. At a meeting of the'eontributors
held at Greensborough on the 14th of May,
Rev. A. Baker, Chairman, the Paper was un
animously located at Fayetteville, under the
name and'title of the North-Carolina Pres
byterian. Rev. Wm. N. Mebane and Rev.
George McNeill were elected Editors: Rev.
Messrs. George McNeill, Wm. N. Mebane, A.
Baker and C. II. Wiley, and Messrs. Geonre
McNeill, Sr., John B. Cook and David Mur
phy were appointed an Executive Committee,
to establish the Paper and manage its business
It is our wish and design to make the Nonrn
Carolina Presbyterian a journal of the first
class, equal to the best in the country in typo
graphical appearauce and in adaptation to the
wants of our Churches. Its columns will afford
the latest intelligence, both foreign and domes
tic, and special care will be taken to give a full
and accurate summary of State news. The
name of the Paper is designed to be an expo
nent of its character and contents. From con
viction, it will advocate the conservative, or-
Hhodox, Old School doctrines and order of the
Our first appeal is to our own people to N
C. Presbyterians. Whilst we rely confidently
upon their favor, we trust that the native sons
of North Carolina who have found homes in
other States, and the adopted citizens of our
State who form so important an element in our
Miuistry and membership, will take a deep
iuterest in this enterprise, and give it their
hearty supports ;
Terms: $2 per annum in advance, or on de
livery of the first number; $2 50 in six months
$3 at the end of the year. To clubs of 25 or
more, paying in adva'nee and when the Paper
is sent to one address, a , discount of 10 per
cent, will be allowed. Our Ministers and
Elders are earnestly desired to act as Agents,
and all others friendly to the cause will please
assist in procuring as many subscribers as possi
ble, and forward the names, by August 1st, to
this Office. s soon as 1500 subscribers are
obtained, the first nnmber will be issued. If a
faithful and vigorous effort is made in the next
twoi months by those Hho take a lively interest
in this work, we will without doubt, be able to
begin the publication at the end of that time
with a paying subscription list of at least 3000.

watchmen of the Ninth Ward, rubbed thoir
hands; with glee, as they heard the chime of St.
Paul jingle quarter of 3 o'clock, the time for
them to retire from their beats tolthe dismiss
ing roll-call. No wonder that they b"ol lly.
laced the herce winds, and made their big feet
pat thje- side-walks most merrily. No wonder
they rejoiced in the close of their night's work,
and anticipated naught but a comfortable bed
and aj more comfortable slumber. On they
tread, little dreaming of danger and trouble.
Passing through a lighted street, they had
just turned into Vine,. when, one of the watch
men happening to raise his eyes, started back
with affright and exclaimed
"Holy Muddet !' vat's da't ?"
"Wjiat V asked his companion, startled also
at this! sudden move.
"See him," replied the other casting his Ions
fingers in the direction of the opposite side of
the street. .

are it ? are it a ghost or are it not 1"

night; "See him shumn "

"S6 he does then it are no ghost .Ghosts

This, proposition was very hesitatingly agreed
to by the Toutonic, but as he could not well

and mqved cautiously on. The sight which had
at first so terrified th em. Was . full finrnro
civ.hccj U a 'orrg garb of white, which moved
aiowiy anu uppaicutir, in a circle upon the op
posite sidewalk. As the watchmen approach"
ed the j really ghost-like figure, they became
more assured in the opinion ;that it was really
a huniain being, and one who had not yet enter
ed the valley and shadow of death. Still, how
ever, their approach was cautious, and they
were mpy feet from it, when one demanded in
the tone cf authority :
"Who and what are ye I Speak, for we are

head in! the direction of the watchman, simply

"Where do you live !"
"Trtujik by tam."
"You'sgot to go mit us to the Vatch House."
"Trunk by tam." 1
By this time the whole mystery was explain
ed. He who had been taken for a ghost was l
a young! German uamed Carlos Delkrech. He
had been libating during the night, and became
so fuddled that he knew not what he was doing.
He had really supposed himself at home,
and had' stripped off his clothing and intended
to lie down on a cellar door, which to him
looked very much like a bed. The watchmen
conducted him, in his undress state, to the Bre
raon street locked up, where they allowed, him
to sleep until 9 o'clock this morning, when
they ushered him, with his swelled. head, before
the Police Court. Judge Pruden repremanded
Carlos (br getting so drunk he could not tell
his bed from a cellar door, and for scaring two
watchmen so bkdly by letting his under gar
ments loose to the winds, at such an early hour
of the morning. Carlos was sent up two days
under the liquor law.

Messrs-Editors After a most careful ex-
amination of Governor Walker's inaugural, one
thing has struck me - as ' remarkably strange
with regard to the impression it' has made upon
Lmy own mind ; and that is, that I find . myself
for the first time in the whole course of my life
opposmg (what 1 would now be called) the
southern side of this question.
From the'dajs of South Carolina nullification.
southern rights party, whenever that'qaestion
has been sprung, and my feelings lead me'that
way now ; but justice, and right, both say now
"Be snre yon are right, then go ahead," is an
old but noble motto. Acting upon this prin
ciple, we must prove Governor,, Walker wjong,
before we condemn him. Let us look for a
moment at the present condition of Kansas.
We find two powerful parties arrayed against
each other almost at the point of the bayonet.'
The one contending that the Topeka Constitu
tion is the only true and constitutional way by
which Congress can possibly - admit Kansas
into the Union as a State ; the other contend
ing for admission upon tgrms laid down by a
pro-slavery Legislature, each acting entirely in
dependent of the other, and both claiming a
majority of voters in the State.
JNow, no one, I presume, will contend that
it would be right in Governor Walker to take
'sides with -either- of these parties. Well, what
does he do ? He merely urges upon the citi
zens of Kansas the spirit of the Democratic
doctrine as laid down in the Cincinnati plat
form he insists that every man shall come up
to the polls and cast his vote, and let the ma
jority decide whether Kansas shall be a free or
a slave State. Now. is not this piirli't - is if
- . , D
not just ; is it not (in all candor) the true in
terpretation of the Kansas bill ? It is most
certainly right; and it follows as a consequence;
that on this poiut Governor Walker has done
it . -.I ..
ning wrong. And wiiat, pray, would be
gained if Kansas could be brought into the
the Union as a slave State, having a majority
of its people opposed to the institution of slave
It would only be the means of promoting
dissensions and strife, until he institution was
nbol-ishecL. The only censurable feature iu this
address, that presents itself to my mind, is that
part of it in which he argues, that the location
of slavery must ultimately be determined by
the isothermal line and this is merely the ex
pression of his opinion and most free born
Americans wonld argue, that every freeman
has the right to the free expression of his opin
ion on any subject, whether involving the ques
tion of slavery or not. ' As to the reasonable
ness of this opinion of Governor Walker, it is
no more than a reiteration of an opinion ex
pressed by one of our ablest representativeg
during the last session of Congress ; in this
I opinion I fully concurred with our representa
tive at the time,xand do now, most sincerely,
with Governor Walker. r
Governor Walker has always been consider
ed an able and independent advocate of south
ern rights, and the high positions he has filled,
would have compelled him to have exposed his
colors, had they been otherwise. The appoint
ment of Governor Walker, by Mr Buchanan,"
in one of the strongest evidentcs he could have
given of his own personal attachments ; and I
believe to-day, that President Buchanan is as
true to the true interests of the South, as truth
itself, and uiy opinion is, that the Democratic
party, backed, as it is, by Mr Buchanan and a
most unexceptionable Cabinet, is the true
southern rights party.
Democrats I beg of yon, as brothers fighting
iu a common cause, and having, the same ends
to accomplish, to be calm during this storm,
and form your opinions with coolness and de
liberation, and do not in any case permit your-
Lselves to be drawn in the wake of interested or
tricky politicians, but take counsel from one of
your number, wh has always worked as a pri
vate in the ranks, and let your ; country's true
interests be your aim ; and whilst battling for
the right, let each remember that, "He lives in
fame, that died in virtue's cause."

Buckingham Palace, on Tuesday, the 16th ult.
The English papers contain fall accounts cf
-"Thaconii!numon table was covered with
crimson velvet, bordered with deep gold lace,
and edged with bullion fringe. In front cf the
table, immediately below the steps by wh'cli it
was epproached, was placed the beautiful chris
tening font oj silver gilt, elevated on a fluted
circular pedestal of white, and gold.
,The fojit contained water brought from the
river Jordan, and presented to the Queen spe
cially fori the occasion. xAll the visiters ap
peared id full dress uniform. The Ambassador
ofTrance and the foreign Ministers all wore
the insignia of different orders of knighthood.
Lords Lansdowne, Clarendon, and Palmers-
ton each wore the 'Garter together with the
gold and enamelled collar of that order. The
procession of the sponsors entered the chapel
five minutes before one o'clock.
"Tha queen wore a white and silver moire
antiquo dress, trimmed with a deep flounce of
Honiton lace, white tulle, and branches of sil
ver flowers. The ton of tho corsacre was frincr-
ed al round wifh diamonds. Her Majesty
wore a diamond circlet, diamond ear-rfucrs, and
diamond necklacej The Qneen also wore the
riband of the order of the Garter from which
was suspended a very magnificent 'George,
composed of brilliants. Prince Albert was in
the uniform of a field marshal, and wore collars
of the Garter, the Golden Fleece and of a Prus
sian Order of knighthood. The Prince of Wa
les, Prince Alfred, and Prince Arthur appear
ed in the Highland dress.
"The Lord Chamberlain, accompanied by
the groom of the State to Prince Albert, ooa
ducted the infant princess iuto the chapel, her
Royal Highness being carried by the Lead
nurse. The Infant Princess wore a robe of
Honiton lace over whjtqT satin. The Archbish

one of these blooming maidens, who qnick. as
thought, threw her arms around his, neck, and
before he had-time to say, "Oh, don't!" pressed
her warm delicate lips to his and gave him as
sweet a kiss as ever swain deserved. In utter
astonishment, the worthy gentleman was en
deavoring to stammer out something, when the
