EXIMOATIOS OF THE EAYETTETILLE FEMALE
The examination of the pupils of this popu
lar and excellent institution was commenced on
Tuesday last, and the various interesting exer
cises connected with the occasion occupied the
two following days. The younger pupils were
examined on Tuesday morning, and really the
bright little lassies acquitted themselves hand
somely. Tho delight with which they seemed
to welcome an occasion on whicn they might
exhibit to their parents and friends their pro
ficiency spoke well foe their industry and at
tention to their studies. On Tuesday evening
the Rev. Joseph C. lluske, rector of St. John's
Church, delivered to the pupils of the institu
tion a sermon replete with all the excellencies
of mind and heart which so eminently charac
terize the ministrations of that able divine.
His text was, "It is not good that the man
should be alone: I will make him a help meet
Woman's relations in life, the end and pur
pose of her creation, the station which nature
intended she should adorn and elevate, and the
necessity for heart culture as well as intellec
tual accomplishments to fit her for the high
fulfilment of her heaven-born destiny formed
the burden of the preacher's address. There
, were few of either sex in that large and atten
tive auditory who might not have profited by
the beautiful and instructive lesson of the min
ister, and the young ladies will do well to trea
sure up the maxims and remember the earnest
exhortations addressed to them upon that oc
casion. On Wednesday the examination was resum
ed, and the more advanced pupils passed thro'
'.he dread ordeal with great credit. I
The French classes under Prof. Ilahr's tu-j
toragc, particularly the younger class, acquit-J
ted themselves admirably and reflected equal j
credit, upon themselves and their instructor, j
Prof. Colton's Classical and Mathematical
classes passed very creditable examinations, the
glory not falling as is ordinarily the cose, upon
one or two unusually proficient students, but
f-hartd criuallv bv each member. We were
ncrrceubly disappointed in the examination of.
Mr Pell's classes in Mental Philosophy and :
Moral Science, the vouug ladies aequittin
themselves in a style that would have put to,
the blush many a "senior wrangler" from our!
state Universities. The Classes in Rhetoric

gave evidence of thorough proficiency in those
branches, and did infinite credit to the strict
and careful training of their very capable tu
tor. The primary and less advanced classes,! . .

under Miss Hatched and Gnthno and Mrs

unites in winning academic laurels, and where
fill did so well we feel no disposition to draw
invidious distinctions. The exercises were very
agreeably interspersed with music by Prof.
Hahr's pupils, and the reading of the young
ladies' compositions by Mr Pell. The follow

were read: "What is home without a Mother?"

Finally the exercises and enjoyments of the last
scholastic week closed with a public party at
the Institutution, where it, seemed to us, every
body went, and where certainly everybody who
did go enjoyed the festive scenes of the hour.
We are sincerely gratified with the success
of this excellent institution thus far, and its
friends may confidently look forward to many
years of increased prosperity and augmenting
usefulness. The resignation of the popular and
efficient rector, Mr Pell, would be a much grea
ter loss to the school than it really is were it
not that the trustees have succeeded in secur

and leaves us to infer that it is "not the otgatf
of that ghastly, ghostly, Godless crew." So"
we have it, the Richmond Whig and" the
Asheville Spectator, the head and tail of
the southern know nothings, repudiate the dark
lanterns. If we should judge frtfm the bad
taste, low-flung malice, ill-bred bearing and
poverty of gentility as displayed in the col
nmns of the latter sheet, we should indeed
place it far below the1 level of an '.'organ' even
of that poor, sunken, friend abandoned party.
The senior editor wilfully and knowingly
misrepresents us when he says that our design
was to ridicule the people of Buncombe.. We
have no personal acquaintance with the peo
ple of that county, but it is to be hbpedj . for
the sake of decency and honorable manhood,
that he is not a fair representative of their pop
ular gentility aud public intelligence. In. re
sponse to our inquiry what business the Ashe
ville Spectator had with Cumberland county
matters, he reminds us that he is a native of
this county, and has, forsooth, a prescriptive
right to dictate to the people how they should
bestow their suffrages in a county electiou.
We simply suggest to him that being hatch
ed in an eagle's nest does not make a king-bird
of a raven.
As to his declaration respecting the pngir"

ter of. the most profound indifference to us what
terms may have been applied to us by a frothy,
foul-mouthed demagogue n the late Legisla"
ture. The more honest and sensible portion of
that body agreed with up, and the vim of the
people stood with us and by us, successfully too,
in opposition to a measure whose friends de
clared would cause grass to grow in the streets
of Fayetteville, and among whose advocates
was this 'son of the town of Fayetteville.' His
endorsement of the "member's" slang but ren
ders it the more contemptible in our eyes, and
utterly fails in its intended effect to chagrin or
exasperate us. His puny wit and puerile sat
ire are equally inoffensive because of the insig
nificance of their author, and he may rest as
sured that we are in no wise discomposed by
his Hop o'my thumb. bravado We repeat that
the charge of proscription and tyranny from a
know nothing upon a democrat is hypocricy,
of the most shameless character, and effrontery
of the most unblushing description, and the Se
nior editor of the Spectator may make the most
of it. Feeling no disposition to protract a con
troversy with an adversary who recognizes in
his columns no principle nor precept of fairness
or courtesy, we hereby decline any further com
munication with the Asheville Spectator,
through the public press.

Shade of Dr Faustus! It is enough to light
up with a smile the gloomiest aiui most ink be

If the professor's "happiuess" depends upon
'politics running low' and our 'filling up gap's'
with his empirical discoveries, he is doomed to
a lifetime of misery, unless he prefers to make

that the delay of its appearance was occasioned
by the preparation of "matter of great pith and
moment," but, alas, there was little "editorial"
and that might have been written by the veriest
verdant on the streets. Instead of soaring to
the height of some "great argument," the Ar
gus" has sunk so low in editorial discourtesy as
to make a savage attack, from some mean per
personal motive, upon a yonng gentleman who,
not aspiring to the poet's wreath, simply pub
lished in the "Observer" a few, it may be, common-place,
lines in honor of one whom he es
teems most highly. Surely it was not fair game
for an editor So criticise ; and I believe that
suchj a piece as ".Modern Poetry" is unparallel
ed in respectable journalism. Its gross impro
priety is recognized by every one who has the
common instincts of a gentleman.
I have no idea that Col. Cameron wrote the
hypocritical affair. The spirit of the thing is
the spirit" of meanness ; and as a critique it is
despicable. "A shady name!" forsooth : has
the junior read Shakespeare or Byron and is
now surprised by such an idea ? The stanza
quoted by the feilow, and which he cannot un
derstand, is more clear and poetical, taken in
proper connection with the preceding one,
than any which he ever wrote' or can write.
But whatever the poem's merit, it was published
by the "Observer" and "Argus," and a week
elapsed before the junior, at the suggestion of
the "devil" I am informed, wrote the miserable
after-thoueht of criticism. The character of
the verses made them sacred iu the eyes of gen
tle men, and nothing but some sinister motive
could have urged any creature to attack them.
Poets are not judged by the evidence afforded
in their lays to their lady-loves, and the piece
so barbarously animadverted upon is good
enough of its kind. The sentiments - which
pervade it give it its value ; and surely there is
the truest poetry in the clumsiest avowal of
respect, admiration, and love. No doubt the
poem pleased the lady to whom it was address
ed : spending to the eyes of others it spoke to
her heart. But ".Modern Poetry" was written
and a dash of bitterness was given to her reflec
tions ; fools were pleased a gentleman was
wantonly insulted and the junior editor of the
"Argus" gained the contempt of sensible and
honorable men. These are his achievements,
Perhaps he is proud of them. Who knows?

people of that Territory, undertakes to' give
a list of States whose present Constitutions
have gone into force without such a popular
