PROSPECTUS
OF
THE NORTH CAROLINA PRESBYTERIAN
The Presbyterian Chnrch in North Carolina
has long labored under a serious disadvantage
from the want of a journal to advocate her
claims and represeut her interests. It is esti
mated that only 1000 Presbyterian Weeklies
are taken in the bounds of our three Presbyte
ries. We have 13,000 Communicants, am lt
is safe to infer that there are 30,00(5P
teriaus in
stand?
and her . ,. . ..irt." th-x ....
any Synod South or West of Pennsvlvania.
uor sister btates on the North and Sooth,
neither of which has a membership so large as
ours., publish the Central, and the Southern
Presbyterian, for the benefit of their people.
The time has come when the Presbyterian
Church in North Carolina 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 the talents of our
Ministry, and to strengthen the attachment of
our people to the soil and sanctuaries of their
own State.
If our Chnrch in other States, and other
Churches in this State, can sunplv their mem-
j bcrs with a religious journal, why may not we?
Are iNort n uarolina I'resb Brians inferior in
talent, euergy and patriotism to their neighbors
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 one of onr most able and usefui
Ministers, an adopted son of our State, "It
onght 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 contributors
held at Greensborongh 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 Presbyterian-.
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. George
McNeill, Sr., John II. Cook and David Mur
phy were appointed an Executive Committee,
to establish the Paper and manage its busiuess
affairs.
It is our wish and design to make the NoKni
Carolina Presbyterian a journal of the first
class, equal to the best in the country in typo
graphical appearance 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
thodox, Old School doctrines and order of the
Chnrch.
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
Ministry and membership, will take a deep
interest in this enterprise, and give it their
hearty support.
Terms: $2 per annnm 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 advance 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. As soon as 1500 subscribers are
obtained, the first nnmber will be issued. If a
faithful and vigorous effort is made in the next
two 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.

1A YE TTE VILLE, 4 JV. V,
IS IT A CHOST, OR IS IT . HOT ?
BY INVISIBLE GREEN, ESQ.
As the watchmen tread steadily along their
allotted beats, when the city is hushed in the
deathly stillness of mid-night, they witness
scenes and encounter events, of the most thrill
ing, as well as amusing character. Last night
" r,y cioutjs huBg
ther "iLe'fril
heavens, and
a stiff uncomfortable breeze, from the north
west, swept the streets. No wonder that two i
watchmen of the Ninth Ward, rubbed their
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 to the dismiss
ing roll-call. No wonder that they bol Uy
faced the fierce winds, and made their big feet
pat the side-walks most merrily.. No wonder
they rejoiced in the close of their night's work,
and anticipated naught but a comfortable bed
and a 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 luddec! vat's da't ?"
"What ? ' asked his companion, startled also
at this sudden move.
"See him," replied the other casting his long
fingers in the direction of the opposite side of
the street.
"Gracious !" whispered the comrade, "what
are it ? are it a ghost or are it not ?"
"Mine Got in Ilimmel, it bes a'ghost !" was
the reply of the other terrified guardian of the
night. "See him shump."
"So he does then it are no ghost .Ghosts
never jnmp. Maybe he's a thief. "Let's get
arter him anyhow."
This proposition was very hesitatingly agreed
to by the Ton tonic, but as he could not well
refuse to follow his comrade, he nodded assent,
and moved cautiously on. The sight which had
at first so terrified them, was a tall figure
ck .hed L- a 'errg garb of white, which moved
slowly auu uppaicutlr, in a circle upon the op
posite sidewalk. As the watchmen approach
ed the really ghost-like figure, they became
more assured in tht opinion that it was really
a human 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 many feet from it, when one demanded in
the tone of authority :
"Who and what are ye ! Speak, for we are
watchmen."
The figure ceased to move, and turning his
head in the direction of the watchman, simply
replied
"Trunk by tam."
"Ha! ha! he! he!" shouted the other watch
man, "he be's not'in' but a trunken mans. Ha!
ha! he! he! he be's no ghost, Let's pitch in
to him."
No sooner said than done. The courageous
Charlies approached manfully, and seized the
spectre by the collar the shirt collar," for he
had no other.
"Vat you doin' here?" was the demand.
"Trunk, by tam," was the reply.
"What did you take off your clothes for !"
"Trunk, by tam," was the response again
made.
"Where do you live !"
"Trunk by tam."
"You'sgot to go mit us to the Yatch House."
"Trunk by tam."
By this time the whole mystery was explain
ed. He who had been taken for a ghost was
a young German named 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 Jntended
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
mon 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 Tolice Court. Judge Pruden repremanded
Carlos for getting so drunk he could not tell
his bed from a cellar door, and for scaring two
watchmen so badly 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.

From the Georgia Cmislilvtionalist
Gov. Walker.
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
my own mind ; and that is, that I find myself
for the first time in the whole course of my life
opposing (what would cow be called) the
Southern side of this question. .
From the'days of South Carolina nullification.
I-hay.-Tvvanan.lVfound mVse'fjfittachcd to the
! southern rights party, whenever that oaestion
has been sprung, and my feelings lead me that
way now ; but justice, and right, both say now
"Be sure you are right, then go ahead," is an
oia out nooie raotio. Acting upon this prin
ciple, we must prove Governor, Walker wrong,
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 terms 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.
Now, 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 2 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 right ; is it
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, 1
that on this point Governor Walker has done
nothing wrong. And what, 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
ry ? It would only be the means of promoting
dissensions and strife, until the institution was
nbol-ishetL The only censurable feature in 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 would argue, that every freeman
has the right to the free expression of his opin
ion on 'any subject, whether involving the ques
tion of jslavery or not. As to the reasonable
ness of itliis opinion of Governor Walker, it is
no mors than a reiteration of an opinion ex
pressed! by one of our ablest representatives
during the last session of Congress ; in this
opinion I fully concurred with our representa
tive at the time,.and do now, most sincerely,
with Governor Walker.
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 evidences 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 ojsinion 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 you, as brothers fighting
in a common cause, and having the same ends
to accomplish, to be calm during this storm,
and form your opinions with cooluess 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, who 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."

The ceremony of christening of the infant
Princess, fifth daughter of Queen Victoria and
Prince Albert, took place in the Chapel within
Buckingham Palace, on Tuesday, the X6th ult.
The English papers contain fall accounts of
the affair:
"The coramunion' table was covered with
crimson velvet, bordered with deep gold lace,
and edged with bullion fringe. In front of tlie
table, immediately below the steps by which it
was Bpprdached, was placed the beautiful chris
tening font of silver gilt, elevated on tt fluted
circular pedestal of white and gold.
.The font contained water brought from the
river Jordan, and presented to. the Queen spe
cially for the occasion. All the visitors ap
peared ia full dress uniform. The Ambassador
of France 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
antique dress, trimmed with a deep flounce of
Honiton lace, white tulle, and branches of sil
ver flowers. The top of the corsage was fring
ed all round with diamonds. Her Majesty
wore a diamond circlet, diamond ear-rings, and
diamond necklace. 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 t he 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, con
ducted the infant princess into the chapel, her
Royal Highness being carried by the head
nurse. The Iufant Princess wore a robe of
Honiton lace over white satin. The Archbish
op of Canterbury proceeded with the baptis
mal service, and when he came to name her
Royal Highness, Lady Caroline Barrington
presented the Princess at the font, and the
Duchess, of Kent named her Beatrice Mary
Victoria Feodore.
"The Archbishop of Canterbury having pro
nounced the blessing, the solemnity was con
cluded at twenty-three minutes past one o'clock.

knockod at the door, when it was opened by
one of these blooming maidens, who quick 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
damsel exclaimed, "Oh mercy, mercy! Mr K.
is this you? I thought certainly it was my bro
ther Henry."
"Pshaw!" said the gentleman to himself,
"you don't think any such thing " But taking
her hand he said in a forgiving tone, "there is
no harm done; dont give yourself any uneasi
ness, though you ought to be a little more
careful."
After this gentle reproof he was ustiered in
to the parlor by the maiden, who as she came
to the light, could uot conceal the deep blush
that glowed upon her check, while the boquet
that was pinded npon her bosom shook like a
flower garden in an earthquake. Audwhen he
rose to depart, it fell upon her to wait upon
him to the door; and it may be added that they
held discourse together for several minutes on
what subject it is not for us to say. .
As the warm hearted youth plodded home
ward he argued with himself in this wise:
"Miss J. knew it was I who- knocked at , tho
door, or how did 'she recognize me before I
spoke? And is it probable that her brother
would knock before entering? . She must be
desperately in pshaw! Why if she loves a
brother at that rate, how must she love a hus
band? for I never felt such a kiss in my life."
Three weeks after the aeeident above des
cribed, AJr K. was married to Miss J.
