from the want of a journal to advocate her

;c cf in infer that there ar 30.000 Presby
terians in principle in the State. Our Synod;
stands fifth in the Union in, point of numbeXT
and her membership is" greater than that pf
any Synod South or West of Pennsylvania,
Our sister States on the North and South
neither of which has a membership so large " t5
ours, publish the Central, and the Sonthern

h4iU . w.i.i .iwIklii the .llaffitt-"
Church in North Carolina should likewisedo"
her duty to her children. It is a conceded and !
important fact, that hundreds of our members1
will take a State paper who will take rio'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 dififasing
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 supply their mem
bers with a religious journal, why may not we?
Are North Carolina Presbyterians inferior in
talent, energy and patriotism to their neighbors
on the North or South, or to Christians of
other deuomiirations at home? With the
same or better opportunities of accoaiplishing
this work, shall we leave it undone? In the
language of one of our most able and uselui
Ministers, an adopted sou 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 contributors
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 Pkes-

A despath to the London Times, dated the

count of the attempt to assassinate Louis Na

"The Emperor was fired at this evening at
. o'clock, while entering the Italian Opera
House, in Rue Lepellier. Some persons in the
street were wounded. The Emperor showed
himself to the people at the door of the Opera
House, and was received with enthusiastic
cheering. He remained till the end of the
opera. On his return, at midnight he was
hailed with enthusiastic cheers by the multir
tude. who -wer.e waiting in the streets to greet
him." " " .
2'he Monitor of the 16th, says "On their

Rout of the Big Swamp Negroes. -
Messrs. EmxoKS : For several years past a
band of runaway negroes', numbering at various
times from six" to ten, has infested the Big
Swamp, lying between Bladen and ; Robeson
counties, just below Smith's Bridge,on the road
leading from Elizabethtown to Lumberton. -
You will remember that" twelve or eighteen
months ago, an attempt to capture' thern waa
made by citizens of Bladen county, and Mr.
DavitT Lewis, one of the party, was killed by
them.
On Tuesday, the 2Gth of January, a party
of men from Ilobesou county, and Mr John
Westley Sikes, of Bladen, made descent upon
these negroes, and quite a fight ensued. The
negroes, 8 or 10 in number, were well armed,
with single and double-barrelled guns, and
having heard beforehand that an attempt would,
be made on that day to storm their camp, they
hid themselves in ambush along the ppth lead
ing into the swamp, and as Mr. Sikes and two
other gentlemen, who were ahead of the others
of the party r cnter-U.ampoiatt feix iv -
eight negroes rose up and fired upon them.
They were then fired on by the whites and two
of them killed. Major, a negro man belong
ing to John W. lford, Esq., of Hobeson county,
was shot dead, and a negro belonging to John
C. Baker, Esq , of Bladen, has been found dead
since then. ' ' ' ..
The remainder of the negroes took, to the
water, some in boats aud others in the water.
After they fled, they were fired upon again, aud
another negro was" wounded supposed mor
tally. , ,
The negroes were pursued for a considerable
distance down the run ot the swamp, uuc uio
majority of the number succeeded in making
their escape.
On Wednesday after the fight, the gentle
men of the party went in and .found their camp
about
7 hey
three-fourths of a mile in the swamp.

cover, Grraly imbeded in what had ongi
been the bottom of the hollow, large flat step
ping stones leading toward the center, where
he found a living spring of excellent water,
walled up with large flat stones set up edge
wise. Near the spring lay a stone pestle, two
feet in length, such as was commonly used by
the Indians in pounding their parched corn pre
paratory to making the Indian meal cake.
Jb rom the pains taken to maice tne spring
easy of access we are led to conclude that this
must have been a spot treqaently resorted to
by the aborigines; and here for centuries, pro
bably, they, when wearied, were wont to siop
and take a cooling draught of nature's healthy
beverage,, long pefore tli white man's axe was
heard in their forests, or the curse ot his tire-1
water and had been -felt in their iron constitu
tiens. That this was not the work of white
men we conclude from the fact that the lane
was in ihe possession of Mr Ilathaway's great
grandfather, and the residence of his father, now
rr sn venrs fl.'o. and that the oldest iuhab-
itantThad no knowledge of nor heard from tra
dition of the existence of this spring. Taunton

samuei i. d." l - . . ,
by its weight the dress to the shape of a cone,
while the part of the skirt below the hoops
flaps, winds and Teefs around it in every wind
that' blows. Not much improvement is tho
addition of one or two other hoops, unless they
are graduated in size according to the height
of the wearer and covered by skirts of sufficient
thickness to hide the skeleton, than which,
uothing eould be more hideous, unless it were a
veritable skeleton from the grave yard.
The only skirt that looks uniformly graceful
is that made of a series of rattan, whalebone ot
brass hoops, extending from the waist to tho
feet, gradually increasing in size with that
graceful swell that gives to the dress the airy
contour of a blue bell; preserving that golden
mean in regard to circumference, that modesty
and good taste will ever dictate, lue uoops
in this skirt should be so near together that
they will lose their individuality, and "mako
no sign" undrueath the thinest summer dress;
for herein lies the advantage and whole philoso
phy of the hoop movement, inasmuch as it al
lows one skirt to give that fulness aud graco
which has hitherto been attainable only by a
half a dozen. .
After all, the genuine crinoline is tho tiling,
which, as its name imports, is a kind of hair
cloth which by its own innate virtue, without
the aid of hoops, will preserve its elasticity
and inflated character, without the awkward
i ness that at times is inseparable from its hum
ble imitator. Tho expense Js the only objec
tion to its general adoption, wmcu, ior toe la
dies' sake, wc hope may be soon removed.
