KOIitH CAROLINA PRESBTTERIAB
The Presbyterian Church in North Carolina'
has long labored under a serious flisauvauiagti
from the want of a journal to advocate heir
claims and represent 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, and "it
is safe to infer that there are 30,000 Presby
terians in principle in the State. Our Syod,
stands fifth in the Union in point of number
and her membership is srreater than that,-, of
any Synod South or West of Pennsytvouia.
Our sister States on the North and SottthT
neither of which has a membership so lareis
ours, publish the v Central, aud the-Stjieru
Presbyterian, for. the benefit of their people.
Hie time has come when the Presbyterian
Churchin 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 Church in other States, and other
Churches in this State, can supply their mem
bers with a religions journal, why may not we?
Are North Carolina Presbyterians inferior in
talent, energy and patriotism to their neighbors
on the orthor 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 our most able and useful
Ministers, an adopted son 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 Carolixa Pres
byterian. Rev. Wm. N. Mebnne 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 H. Cook aud David Mur
phy were appointed an Executive Committee,
to establish the Paper and manage its business
It is our wish and design to make the North
Carolina Presbyterian a journal of the first
class, equal to'the best iiTtiie country iiriypo
graithicat 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 aud contents. From con
viction, it will advocate the conservative, or
thodox, Old School doctrines and order of the
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
interest in this enterprise, and give it
Terms: $2 per annum in advance, or on de

$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

and all others friendly to the cause will please

two months by those Hho take a lively interest

with a paying subscription list of at least 3000.

the allied avarice and envy, cairt and rapneity
of England and the Northern States. Altho
the foiled and furious enemies of our institutions
may shake np. nnrork and pour out on our
battered brows the foaming vials of their wrath;
although the F resident may be shocked and
embarrassed; and although the erent parties of
the country may be bitterly disappointed and
imprangled, let it go forth that. Southerners
have tiiken into their own hand the law, and
opened the African Slave Trade with the South;
that Africans are now imported into Mississippi
and other seashore States; that in Mississippi
there is a market for African slaves, and that
on plantations in that great and intcrpid State,
negroes recently imported from Africa are at
their daily work. The authority on which we
make this announcement is indisputable. Wc
even have cdvices that in Miss"ssippi, Henry
Hughes and some of his party now private
ly urge the Labor Immigration movement, not
to open the supply of Africans, but to legiti
mate, moralize, retrnlate and equalize the sup
ply already opened aud impossible to be closed.
We have some further details. Some neuroes
are disembarked on the Atlantic coast and
brought overland to the Mississippi cotton
fields, hut the Mississippi seacoasts's peculiar
facilities for landinir and secreting cargoes, and
the conveniences of Pearl River as a channel
for distribution, are not overlooked.
The profits of the Mississippi slave trade are
enormous. We have been so fortunate as to
procure from undoubted authority some inter
esting details They relate to the operations
of the Mississippi slave trade, and are authenti
cated by operators. It. ied not be said in the
first place that the bark engaged In the traffic
to the South must, be a fas; saihir, for this is
indispensable to the security of She officers and
crew, the health of the cargo, and the rapidity
of the pecuniary returns. For a trip from the
Mississippi coast to Africa and back, there must
be a captain, snpcrcariro. three mates, three
cooks, steward, and between twenty and thirty I
rst class mcn. -The vessel rcu-i be jreil t

but the most useful is now the French flag, be-j

on tne mates, over whom tue captain ongiu
keep a strict watch. For the subsistence
the negroes there must be a plentiful supply
hard bread, corn meal, rice and an abundance
of vinegar, red pepper, pure water and drugs.
In distributing diet, the greatest regularity is
to be observed, and the very first symptoms of
disease promptly treated. As to the capacity
of the superior officer, it may be safety said
that a slavf r requires in it more courage, talent,
honesty, fidelity, skill and discretion, than any
other ship in any other trade. Indeed, the
captain and supercargo must, between them,
act as navigator and naval officer, merchant
and physician, diplomatist and magistrate, not
to mention the functions of chaplain.
As to the expenses and profits of the vovage,
the latest advices were from the captain of a
bark which sailed from onoof the CJeorgia ports.
He has quite recently 'etnrned, and reports that
on account of the vigilance of cruisers, negroes
had accumulated on the coast; and in a manner

formerly, barter for merchandize.
W e may estimate, a cargo to numbe seven
hundred negroes, although many more than that
are often curried; but whatever the number,
none purchased should be over twenty-five years
of age: Seven hundred, at an avert.ge cost of
thirty dollars a piece, will amount to $21,000
anu ineir price in fis conmrv or vunn iuhn
range from $450 to $1200. But if sold for
$500, say, the car.ro will net $350,000. Free
ly allowing, then, $150,000 for t lie entire ex
penses of the vovasre and all possible loss, the
profits ot on round voyage will amount to
$200,000. w here the profits are so exorbitant,
we can well understand why the business has
been begun in the b'Outh.
We can well understand the- impossi
sibility of closinir the trade now begun, and
most of all, we now can understand that the
jrrt-at question is not whether there shall be
for the South a supply of African labor, be
cause that is now settled, and the great and
absorbing question is whether, 'according to
Hughes's method, the supply shall be so modi
fied as to be legitimate fair, regular and equal.

And a bird in the solitude singing !
Our army was marching into MatamofaS,
and the officer writes ":
There was a little incident occurred, which
contrasted po forcibly with what, was goingon
around me, that I could not but be struck by it.
Under a tree fust on the river bank, and at
the point where the bustle and throng of the
passage was the greatest, a family of Mexicans
had taken shelter, who had recrossecJ to our
side the clay before, and had not had time to
move to their homes. There were some six or
eio-ht children of various ages; one of these a
beautiful, black-eyed, graceful little creature of
five or six years. I saw her, while the tumult
and toil of all description rang around while (
arms were flashing, cannon rolling, men hurry-

it will not improve ypilr morals, healthy nor'
your beauty. Marry as soon as you can
make it convenient, and shape your affairs
to support a wife. Bui tvhen you marry,
don't fall in love with a face instead of a
woman. Remember that common sense ia a
rare virtue, much better than silver, gold
and fashion. Don't court and marry crino
line and money bags, simply because - it i
crinoline or gold is plenty j but look tor sound
practical sense in a woman first-that is the ,
touch stone to try their qualities by.
When you have that, all else comes.
Yorir wife, that is to be, if she's full of com-
mon sense, will grow to your way of thinking
and make yqil grow to hers;' A woman who
has womanly iov'e in her heart, will find way
to make your. ioye towards hei grow as the
yctlgtr pveirn Wth And another hipg
needs tojbe beeded, and that is - a commons
sense woman is not to be found where fash "
ion insists upon dragging y'ouug females ir.tcf
a whirl, where there is simply idle gossip
and little brain.-
Young man! don't stand looking after
that yonng woman who has a distinguished
air, the reputation of a flirt and a belle,
whose father has heaps of cash; for it is not
impossible that while you are straining your'
eyes you may bo turning your back upon
some nnobstusive damsel whom nature des-
igned for yoiir other half, and who may bo
thafc pleasant faced, placid tempered,
loving little creature who will think enough
of you to go with yon to the end of the
world, and stay by and comfort you when
you get gray haired and fidgety "
Marry, young gentlemen, and keep yottf
selves out of scrapes. Have something to
live for. A man alone in the world isn't
more than half a man, and the world wants
enti-e men. And yon shall have reason to
say it M as a good thing you resolved to inary
and reftise to be a solitary, beer-drinking
pipesmoking bachelor, if you succeed as
well in your efforts as he who, once a young
man like you, is now simply old contented
and happy. Life IHustrateJ .
Why Ladles Should Read S-wspnprrs.
It is a great mistake in female education
to keep a young Iadyfs time and attention
devoted to only the f: shionable literature of
the day. If you would qualify her for con
versation, you must give her something to
talk about; srive her education with this ac-
tual world and its transpiring events. Urge
jlior to read newspapers and become familiar
, with the present character and improvement
; of our race. History is of some importance
but the past word is dead, "and we havenoth-
ino-to do with it. Our thoughts and con--cerns
should be for the present world, to
know what it is and improve the condition "
of it. Let her have an intelligent opinion
and be able to sustain intelligent conversa-
