number of uneducated children in the State. He,
(Julge Ed;s) differed widelv with Mr M. as to the
number. Judge E. then read a statement from
the Keport of the States' Superintendent of Com

the case it was evident that it wotihl be but wise in

also to carry oil new schemes which would be to
her advantage. The Coal Fields Road should par

kJudge EHis alluded to Mr McEac's position on
the land ojiestion. He thought the idea which ilr
M. held -out, of shutting down the land offices in the
Territories icx ten years was f raught with many
evils. Squatter could go and settle oii the land
in such numbers during. that period, that they
could bid defiance to the lawful authorities, they
would claim it by fosses.4r!h; and no tioiibt would
prefer to obtain it in that way than.by.paying for
it. So the trobabilitv Wiis. w stinnlrl Irish mt if
allot out public domain by Meltae's policy
u carnea out. lie said Mr Clay' proposition to i
distribute was tar more practicable than his ofir'-o- I
nent's. llis (Mr Clay's) was to distribute the sur
plus in the Treasury, not to divide the lands or
proceeds when the Treasury was empty and the
country in debt; as Mr McRae proposes. He
read the views of Clay, Calhoun, and Webster, on
distribution, and showed that Mr McRae's was by
jlarmore uangeroiis and impracticable. He stated
tlmt bis opponent had said the lands had been tr ven
and squandered away, that he included in the
amount squandered (as Mr McRae termed it) all
grants to soldiers in our different wars, or those
! granted to their widows and orphans. Judge E.
contended that such lands were highly paid for by
the blood and hard services of the soldier; certainly
they were not given or squandered away and
further it would be a hard case for the widows
and ojplwns if his opponent's policy was carried
out, for the amount of lan Is thrown on the market,
would be so great tliat the grants which the sol
dier had earned would become Useless to the hol
ders, owing to the very small sum which they
would bring. lie was opposed to throwing such
heavy competition in the way of lands belonging
to the soldier or to tiuir widows and orphans, it

r From the account given by the. Democrat of yhe
discussion between Judge EHis and Mr McRae
which took place at C harlotte on the 10th inst.
we glean the following particulars which are the
most important for our section of the State and in
fact for sill internal improvement advocates. Mr

fail dde" Tie called upon the citizens of Meck
lenburg to look at the increase in their county
taxes, $12, 000 more than in 1848. All this
money had bee .devoted to internal improve
ments, without-returning any substantial bene
fits. There was tlo R ii broad stock in the State
that would command par it had never been
higher than $G0, while most of it could be
brought for $25 to $30. Even the, Wil. and
Weldon Road had b en unable to lay .down a
sinking fund, of any size, and will have to borrow
money in Europe to meet its liabilities.
He claimed to be an internal improvement
man, but was opposed to appropriating another
dollar from the Slate Treasury for such works
at this time he thought the present condition
of affiirs forbid further aid, and would, if elec
ted Governor, recommend no further appropria
tions. There was no hope for the West to get
further lielp, for the East would not allow it
there would not be three eastern democrats in
the Legislature who would vote for it. He
wanted to know what Judge Ellis' position was
on that subject. The Judge said he would

course to pursue, ami he was willing to adopt it.
My opponent (said lite Judge) has, talked
a great deal about the State debt, but he is in
some measures responsible for it. The demo
cratic Convention of 1851 passed a resolution
in favor of internal improvements Mr McRae
was in that convention and voted for the reso
lution, and it did not seem right to hear him
now complaining about the State debt after
favoring schemes which caused it.

Arch'd McLean presented the prizes in an appro

After the Target firing was througlf, the corps
marched in company with the Independent Lt. In.
Company, and the Fayetteville Cadets, to the
Farmers' Hall, where an overflowing board was
spread and of which a very large number of our
citisens freely partook. We think it was the best
served up dinner we have ever seen injhis town and
was creditable to the corps as well as suitable to
the occasion. , At least five times fhe large number
presant might have been well fed from the table.
The day passed off pleasantly to all. For our part
we would like very much if the anuivereary of this
corps would come along oftener that is if we are

may flourish and bloom and continue to be what it

Rev. Dr. Hacks' vLsit to this place.
This eminent Jiviqo preached in St. John's
Church, on last Sunday morning and afternoon.
On Monday evening he delivered his lecture on the
"Farewell Address of YVashingte'h," and on Tues
day evening preached at Stl John's Church. We
listened to Dr Hawks in the forenoon oh Sunday.
He is certainly a No 1 reader, and in preaching
employs graceful language and beautiful figures
We were not struck with his power of eloquence aq
some appear to have been, yet he is a faeinating
speaker, and one can listen to him withoutbeing
wearied. We regret that wo could not attend the
Doctor's Lecture on ilonday evening. It has
been very highly spoken of by many who were
present. Being a North Carolinian by birth and
education, we feel the more partial to him, and as
a man of talleuts and superior mental attainments
he reflects no nittle honor on the good old State.

The following Communication from "A citi

which so improves the appearance to every
thing afound and is an evidence that the ener
gies of its population have not become eitinct.
We hope at least that the Market House will
be improved oy the board of Commissioners.
"Mr. Editor: As the prospect is bright for
completing the Fayetteville and Western Rail
road, would it not be consulting the interest of
property holders in this town to have all their
Stores and Houses painted up and white washed?
TtreMarket House also requires one or two
new coats of paint so as to set off the business
portion of the place. Paints are very low at
tliis time and laborers can be had at moderate
prices. The small outlay for these improve
ments would not be felt much by either the
owners bf the property or the ebfpbralori itself.
