MeRae intends visiting -this plof on tlie 9ta of
Feb'y, and will addresses fcikfcitizens on the
evening of the same.- jtris alledged that his object
is-to defend himself from the attacks of certain of
the Press. ' He-will also speak at Goldsborough on
.the 1st, Raleigh the 15th, and -Hillsborough the
23rd of February.
r Come, brother HoMen, yon must out with it.
- What have yoti been doing to raise . the knap of
"the Squire after this fashion? Or is it your neigh
bor Syme of the Regksy working at the wires of
distribution, who is uing the Squire to take this
tour in serf defence -and thereby throw out feelers he tfuveld to see "whether it will do to thrust
Leak aside and stump it over the State, in oppo'si-.
tion to our next nominee for Governor! Perhaps
out brothers Fulton and Price of Wilmington have
been rather nauglity towards MeRae as ho set
apart the 23th inst., to visit that -city. Letr "us
know; gentlemen .of-the Journal, what lack of focir-
tesyhavQ you been-guilty of towards him? "Pos
sibly yoa can make the amende honorable Fh time
i . - --
tojstop a tongue-lashing if it has not already" been
admiiiisted to vou! Tn0 Tribune at. Goldsboco1,
certainly mnst be at fault too, for tho Squire in
tends being heard in that region as sure as the sun
Shines, on tlfo 1st "of February, and as sure as he is
a living man! Wo do not know what the Hillsbo
rough, domocracy have been saying or doing
against the Squire, but they had better "fess the
corn as Pompy did just afore ho received 39 on his
bare back," for as sure as the 23J of Fobr'y rolls
round, so sure will they catch it.' Wo thought" our
j frjentl Yates of the ClidTloUeJDenXvcrai I was rather
ejicy uguuisL mu oquire, uui wtj ce a'" ''wmi
meut made for his quarter of the State. Friend
Yates, however, had better look out, for if any man
ver deserved to cateh"tho ash from the Squire,
e tlrnk he richly deserves it, for he laid it on rath
rt thick a mouth or so ago in liis columns. The
Winston Sentinel must also be on the alert, for if
'. v mistake not it has been rather extensive in its
briu!es against friend McEac's (Dancy ) letter
Tht.?.lisbury Uanner, too, unfurled its ample and
graced folds in a hostile position to said letter, it
therein, had better be prepared to make pnlper
acknov;nents to the Squire before it is too late.
As for t. W.irrenton AVmw, it should commence
at once t nt on sack clotlrand"u-dies, for'its sins
of commis.- n against-the letter havo been enor
mous. Th'A-hoviile At n-s, too, has been rather
guilty with b ust of Mr Mcllae's democratic op
ponents in pu.-' his letter of distribution to pie
ces. We forgi -.hether the Giraffe occupied a
hostile position c- . t but as well as we recollect it
came down like a..usand of brick on the docu
ment. As for our-'.?, we have becrl quiet and
peaceable towards '.:tcRae, we know, therefore,
be cannot mean us a- e of his marks to shoot at.
Yet, lie understands opposition perfectly well
He knows that we are ti-i-l opposed to the doc trine
of distribution and are e.;: ..y ns hostile to disor-
ganizers in our ranks. S'u ..Id Mr MeRae ever go
before the people (as it is Miiked that he may do j
between this and August) au Candidate favoring
the heretical doctrine containti in his Danev let
ter, then we will be prepared, litieally speaking
to "welcome him with bloody hauls and a hosp'ta
tie grave." We do not know that -such is hi.-7
which ai
I itit the fact even of his
'caching tei -'reel
would be

our columns will be i-mp'oyi-d in defence of our
faith in opposition to Mr MeRae, or any other, in

the good old democratic paths. We w.onld much

wish to see a man of his superior talents and tine
accomplishments, politicly Juried as it were here
in North Carolina, whe hc might bo of o much
use to her in various has noed of tll
free and full exercise "-he talents of all her sons.
Ihit what arc Miperi,r 'af'"ts and exulted accom
plishments worth. when they are directed in the
wrong way. W1 hope Mr MeRae will show by his
course that lie determined to adhere to the true
democratic fa''1 am that he will abandon all bis
foolish idea "all litribution and go for that

and wbcn they have taken a calm and dispassionate
view of their course they are as ready and willing
to rcrrace their stops as they were eager at first to
pMrsuethc rong path.
Vrc are partial to Mr MeRae, from the fact of
lils being a native horn, son of Fayetteville, and
reared up and educated in our midst, and we be
lieve he has the welfare of his native State at heart.
These considerations together with our knowledge,
as we have before said of his superior talents aud
i. l. i . r t. ..1 . r i a:
fine accomplishments are the reasons why we have
been induced to exercise patience towards his de-
viations from the old democratic policy on the land
question.' We always feel a State pride for any
and all of her talented sons and would much prefer
to hold them up before tho world than to aid in
burying them in the grave of oblivion. But if they
will persist in their obstinacy and take a hostilo
position to that party on the success of which, we
believe depends the prosperity of our State and
Union, then we are bound to buckle on our armor
and fight against them, "not that we love Cassar
less, but that we love Home more."
STWe received this week through the Post
Office, a letter from Gray's Creek, containing two
Marriage Notices, with the request for us to pub
lish them. It being contrary to our rules to insert
either Marriage or Death Notices in our paper,
without tlie name of some responsible person is
attached to them and as there is no name signed to
the Grays Creek letter we cannot depart from our
usual rule in such cases, and therefore the Mar
riages are not published. Persons , sending such
communications ought to be more particular. They
must sign their names ia full in order to justify an
Editor in inserting such Notices. We wish to be
: obligmg, but cannot be so when we are compelled
to run all the risks of the law of tho land ourselves
Our friends must not, therefore, blame ns for
any omissions of this kind when the fault -s with
themselves entirely.

A- The wa't of such a Journal is felt by
iritellitrtfut citizen, who desares to become :it
acoaaintfed with the resoureea of tli e State, onr
present contton,. future orospects,'&Tc.r and bj -
which, in their present situ ition. for all practi-.
eal purposes, might as well be in the Chinese
language. Besides what our Legjslative
archives contain, our newspapers often publish
valuable statistical information, which is either
lost, or if preserved by a very few, is so incon
venient to find when wanted, that the facts arc
soon forgotten.- 21ie same may be said of the
Reports and Statements fi om time to time
made by our incorporated companies" and other
engaged in Manufactures, Mines, Commerce-,
&e. To collect these various items of informa
tion, and give them to the public in a shape
easy of reference and for perpetual preservation,
as well as to gather from all available resour
ces, everything bearing directly or indirectly
on our wealth, prosperity and industry, is the ,
design of the Journal now offered for public
putroaage. So far as the plan for conducting the same
has been matured, the pages of the STATIST
will be devoted to the arrangement of such
tables relating to oar Population, Agriculture,
Commerce, Education, Public Improvements,
Manufactures, Fisheries, Mines, and Social Sta
tistics generally, as will preseut their condition
and our progress in each.
It is also designed to contain the Reports
(condensed) of the Public Treasurer, Com
missioners olthe linking r nnu, oupenntencicni
of Common Schools, and all other State Offi
cers and I5oards; as also, Statenients and Re
port, of the condition and progress of the vari
ous Railroad and Navigation Companies.
The Statist will be put to press as soon as a,
sufficient number of responsible names are ob
tained to pay tho expenses of publication. Th(
numbers will contain each, not less than 150
P--o closely printed matter, making a book of
300 pages, or more, to which will be added a
full and complete index.
Terms: THREE DOLLARS pep. annct.i
months; payable when the first number is ready
for publication, which fact will be duly announced
in tho public Newspapers.
EFThose persons intending to patronize tho
Journal, will send their names to tho undersigned
without delay, as it is desirable to issue the first
number as soon as possible.
