The Democratic Meeting in tills County.
On Thursday last, a Democratic Meeting was
held m this place to appoint delegates the Char
lotte Convention. Hon. Jesse G. Shepherd, who
presided, on taking the chair, returned his thanks
for the honor conferred on him by a call to the
responsible post. Mr S. alluded to his own posi
tion before the public and said that lie desired his
claims should not be thought of in the corning can
vass, that he had already expressed his determina
tion to retire to private life for the present at least.
TT. nllu.li.! to the honors which his fellow citizens
of Cumberland and Harnett had seen proper to j
bestow upon him in times prist, and returned to j
them his heart-felt thanks for the same. He sta-I
ted that he was content to work as a private soldier j
in the Democratic ranks and would earnestly con- .
tend in its behalf against all opposition; that its j
cause was his cause, and its honor his honor. A o ;
have already in another article alluded to Mr S. j
on pretty much the same subject. We can truth- j
fully say that he has the confidence, esteem, and
affection of his democratic friends in this and the I
adjoining Counties, whether he is in the ac tive j
arena of public life, or in the quiet enjoyment of
the independent private post.
5y reference to the proceedings of our meeting
it will be seen that the Hon .Tno. W. Ebis. has been
recommended for Governor, and, should ho obtain
the nomination at the Charlotte Convention, will
receive a most cordial support in this icction. lie

D. K. MoRie. Esq., at Charlotte.
The Democrat informs us that Mr McRae, ad
dressed the citizens of Charlotte, last week. From
the published account in that paper, it was similar
to the address delivered by Mr M. in this place,
with this exception : that he took friend Yates to
task for the manner in which he had been handled
by that paper. Friend Yates does not however
give one inch but retorts back with considerable
force and ability. The following is the artic le to
which Mr McRae took exceptions and which ap
peared in the Democrat of the 15th of December
"A Promixf.xt Dkmoceat." The opposition
papers in speaking of the distribution letter of
Duncan K. Mclijie, styles its author a "prominent
democrat," "a prominent member of the tiemo-,.-.vt

run again, as lie found out probably, that forcing
himself upon the people would not prove such an
easv matter the second time.
This was his first move as a " prominent demo
crat." His second consisted in his taking the field
in opposition to the regular candidate for Congress
in the third District. A little over four years ago
he opposed the Hon. Wm. S. Ashe for Congress,
and then advocated a distribution of the public
lands. No doubt the main reason why he. acted
at -that timo was, that he had applied to Mr:
Pierce's Administration for an office abroad and
had concluded that he was not to get it, therefore
he determined to take revenge by opposing the

to Paris while acting in opposition to the party.
If he had been aiioweu to Bumnmi. ...
we should not be bothered with him now for he
would have been beaten so badly that the hand of
resurrection could never reach him.
When democrats expressed regret to leading
nten in Washington at such an appointment, they
were told that the appointment was made before it
was known that he was in the field as a disorgan
izer." CF- Gov. Perry of Florida has issued a call for
the enlistment of more volunteers to serve in the

" Oar ' friend Cow, of the FayetUviTle

predicted some Viae ago, that if we did'nt mind
Squire McRae would get after us. Ought we
to regret causing him a jeurney of 113 miles to
put the Western Democrat straight, or ought
we to pay one-half of his expenses to Charlotte?.
We have concluded to pay oar equal share of
the expenses after the "Squire" is elected Gov
ernor. That's fair." Charlotte Democrat.-
So, friend Yates, our prophesy has come true.'
The Squire has actually visited your region as we
anticipated, and you cotch it sure enough, from his
tongue; but we see he has caught .it Lack from
your pen rather handsomely: Yon liave given
him vonr hand without the mitten. Friend Mc
Rae will probably find by the election, that distri
bution is a rotton plank on which he will scarcely
be able to walk into the Governor's Mansion, or
into the U. S. Senate Chamber. The probability
is the said plank will give him a lofty fall as it has
done in the case of poor Leak. We feel sorry for
Leak, that he should have been so misled by Mc
Rae. Syme & Co. lie thought that he was the
identical distribution farmer that was called for,
and like a well-meaning, and of course disinterest
ed, consistent democrat, out he pops in answer to
the call, but he soon finds it is no go; no democrats
will walk the same plank with him, and Syme &
Co, seeincr it would- certainly break ilown -
tiously avoided his company. Sure enough, the
plank could not hold together any longer, but
splits right in two and spills the Richmond farmer!
No doubt by this time he heartily says "save fiie
from my friends"! We are inclined to believe
that Squire McRae will find himself in -the same
predicament after the next elections, whether for
Governor or for the U. S. Senate.
