'North Carolina State Bonds."
The Washington Union makes an extract (which
will be found below) from the report of 1. -W.
tourts, Esq., Treasurer of the State of North
Carolina, to the last Legislature of the State upon
its finances. That paper thus complimentary al
ludes to the credit of the old North State:
"There is no State of our Union whose credit
ias stood firmer in the late financial crisis than
N-orth Carolina. The bonds, whenever offered,
hav commanded a higher price than those of the
neighboring States. With the interest payable
semi-anMually in New York, which is always ready
at the day, and a sinking fund to redeem the prin
cipal when duo, these bonds are justly considered
among the safest investment of the country."
The above.paragraph, though a compliment, is
yet in deed, and in truth, a fixed fact. W hatever
may be wtid of hr tardiness in th march of im
provements, North Carolina is not a whit behind
the most nroinnt viavinir State in the Union. Her
v , t i
Cl edit is not excelled by any. While there are
maL v of her sisters which -can boast of Railroads
withou end, and of other varied improvements of
which she' has as yet scarcely dreamed, aye, and
she mnv be drained of her trade, on her right hand
and on her lei": J'et her honds are of the highest
srrade thrown iu the trading world. And long
may her character illis respect be sustained by
her people and their J gislators. .'
Below is the extract t. -m Treasurer Courts' re
port as referred to by the Cr'ion:
"-' "But I will take this occasion to say thnt,
having been for several years connected with the
finances of the State, and charged witn tne re
sponsibilitv of meeting from time tv t.'nie, the de
mands against her, 1 .suppose my opportunities

"Bank of Ciiarlotte, N. C."
As there appears to be some doubt, publicly ex
pressed concerning the solvency of the Bank of
Charlotte, in this State, it is but due to our readers
to lay before them the articles of the Petersburg
Expressi on which are founded this doubt. If the
notes of that Bank are not good we presume it will
be made known by next week from fountain bead.
Below are the' articles alluded to:
From the Petersburg Express of Sept 1st.
"A sudden flash of unanticipated excitement
agitated the holders of Charlotte. N. C, bank
paper, on change and elsewhere, yesterday.
The slight panic was thought to hare been the
result only of an unexpected depreciation of
funds on the bank of Charlotte f a supposition
which seemed to be both explained and dispelled
by the following from theFinancial report of the
Baltimore Patroit: Some days since, at the
request of Messers. Johnston & Bros., xe pu
blished a statement to the effect that they had
protested the Bank of Charlotte, N. C, for
refusing to pay coin on $28,000 of its notes,
held by them. To-day we have received from
Messers. Johnston & Bros, the following note:
"Will you have the kindness to call attention
to this notice and state that at the time of the
protest the Bank was still in a state of su
spension, but has since redeemed its obligations
to us in coin, and that its standing and credit
will compare favorably with any other North
This most agreeable exposition was not long
the master of the doubt, however, for while
holders of the unsafe funds were becoming
jubilant, intelligence from a most reliable
source, was received and rapidly disseminated
through the city.that the bank of Chariot te had
now bat $12,000 in specie to asset liabilities to
the amount of S200, 0001 The statement was
received at Weldon, from whom well posted
parties, and the above from Baltimore exchange,
instead of sustaining its assumption seems now
rather to throw ominously forward a token in
favor of the latter Unpleasant announcement.
Still we would not refrain from doubting; the
reports are not altogether official enough, and
knowing the immense amount of Charlotte, to
gether with other N. C. money, current in
Petersburg, we would not advise a sacrifice by
any means on the part of those who may have
Charlotte funds '
From the Express of Sept 2nd.
"The Western Democrat, publishedin Char
lotte, came to hand yesterday, bnt m ikes no
mention of any developments having been mada
there, touching the insolvency of the institution.
It the reports concerning the Bank be untrue,
the Board of Directors should iiumeditaely
publish a statement of its condition. This is a
duty the' owe the public. Its notes, represent- j
mg thousands of dollars, have ever circulated
freely in this community, and will continue to
do so, if our citizens can be assured that the
Bank is doing a reliable, legitimate bnsiness.
Up to Tuesday not the shadow of a suspicion,
that we are aware of, lurked in the minds of
our citizens regarding this soundness of the
Bank, and no money passed more . current in
transactions of bargain and sale. It has been
bankable in this city for some time post, nor
has the issue of any other North Carolina
Bank. A nd strange to say, we can go even
further and add, that the issues of a great
many Virginia Banks are not received on de
posite or in payment of an obligation at aay
Bank in Petersburg. This should not be so,
but it is neTerthless true, as many of our
merchants kuovv much to their aunoyunje and

increase of about 29 per cent , during the last
d-cennial period compares with that of the free
colored ratfe. Up to 1830 the number of free
blacks increased, but it was not by their natu
ral progress in population, but by the then fash
ionable eustom of manumission at the .South
and the change in condition br the legislation
in several of the Northern States abolishing
slavery. .After 1830 we slionld look for thai
increase due to the natural operations of vital
and physical laws. 7be increase of the free
blacks, which in 1830 was 34 percent in 1.U0
fell to something less than 21 per cent., and in
the decennial period closing with 1850, was
about I -J J per: ''coot. considerably less than

We care not what the influences were which
caused this decay and decadence of the race,
whether it be the moral and intellectual inferi
ority of the black, the successful competiou of
white labor excluding him from profitable fields
of employment, or the prejudices of color and
caste reducing the negro iu the social scale,
and taking from him the incentives of ambi
tion and pride, the result is the same and the
conclusion is irresistible. Freedom to the
black is a heritage of woe
him and his race of a fruit.
"THE NEW ERA."
' This i a nearly printed Weekly, published at
Xewbern- fn this State and seems to be quite an
interesting paper.. We ought to have noticed its
appearance befove this, but as it was inadvertently
done one our part we hope that our brothers of
the "Xevr Era-" will take our present notice as an
offering of friendship.
"The New Era" is Democratic in politics, and
deserves the sttpport of the party. It is also a
good general-news paper and therefore should have
the support of persons without regard to party
politics. Wecongratulate the twwn of Newborn,
on having so valuable an acquisition to its midst as

in the main, greatly redounded to the prosperity
of the State; and, as these improvements have been
chieflv built up by the aid of the State, by giving

count of the death of a Mr J. T. Cornell, of Ne w

been in this part of the State but three or four

the attentive perusal of our readers. That paper
takes a just view of the condition of the slave popu
lation in the United States' and shows conclnshvely
that they are in a far more happy state than they
wouly be if sot free.
The sentiments of the Acirs are worthy of all
commendation, especially as they emanate from a
Journal which breathes in a Northern atmosphere j
a region which is hostile to the peculiar institu
tion of the South and which contains a party -ever
willing and ready to raise the cry in the Halls of
Congress and elsewhere "dowu with it, down with
it. even to the ground." It is astonishing that we
can find so many men of practical sound sense in
other matters entirely destitute of it when the
slavery question is brought to the test. O.i pre
senting this subject before them, they become as it
were, like mad-men. There is no reasoning with
such men as Horace Greely, Ward Beer.h or, Ger
rit Smith, Garrison, Theodore Parker, and a :host
of others of like character. Is it not a matter -of
regret that the mnsses in the Northern States
should be so much under their influence; and as
long as this is so what can be expected but a do--termined
hostility on the part of the North to our
constitutional rights? What but a selfish dema
gogueisin will find a congenial climo in their hot
beds of abolitionism? The Democratic party
North stands manfully to uphold the rights of the
South in common with the doctrine of States'
rights. They protest by their votes and speeches
in Congress against -the interference of that body
with our domestic institutions for the same reasons
that they urge for non-interference with the insti
tutions of their own States. We admire thflir bold
ness and their truo patriotism for the South, for
the North, and for the whole Union. So long as
the influence of these men can be felt in the North
ern States, we have no fear of the Republic, for
she will be safe. The democratic Journal', too
should be highly commended for their unyielding
attachments to the Union for their unfaltering
defence of the South and -her rights. They hay
much to contend with, surrounded as they are by
the pestiferous influences of abolitionism, free-soil-ism,
and a vast number of other isms which con
federate together to break down the Nati" ial dem
ocratic party, on the success of which, we alone
feel any human security for the -longer coutinaauoe
and well-being of our common country. Among
the Journals referred, we know of none more de
voted to the rights of the South than the New
York Daily and Weekly New.
The following is the language of that paper in
regard to the Negro population-. No Southerner
who has been born and educated among us, could
express themselves on the subject more to the
'' rue tide of sympathy which was once felt
pretty generally, even at the South, for the
negro, as abstractly entitled to freedom, and
that his condition as A slave was a hardship,
begins to be wearing away. Tiie negro of the
SOuth may have no greater political rights or
privileges than he has in Brazil, Cuba, tr in
his native Dahomey or 4shantee, bet he is
physically, morally, and in every other view,
in far better condition. They live, they

of the United States, and the comparison that
can be made of the r. lative prj. teas o" the
uiac-K rice as divided into the two classes of
free and slave.
So much for American slavery, On Ibe
other hand we are told that not less than two
hundred millions of Africans were imported in
to the British West Indies during less than
two hundred years and that only about 800,
000 were left at the period of the emancipation-.
The decrease in Cuba is almost equally fright
ful, and this is the consequence of the "competi
tion which results from the existence of the
slave trade. The master cannot aff.rd to look
after the well being of the slave trade or to
regard his comfort and health. The influx of
new laborers depreciates the price of the old
stock, and as a matter of economy the slaves
are ill-fed and urrd to exertions greater t,!an
they can War. The COnseqnences are obvious
and the ratio of their consumption under the

The American planter is a far better protector
of those intrnsted to his care, than the British
captain of the cooly ship, or the Spanish or
Brazilian trader. It makes Ho dfference what

advance of this conntry. Are we not her best

If it is the negro whose condition is to tre alone
considered, then let the people of Exeter llall
learn, that this interesting type of humanity is
wearing out in the torrid fields at Cuba at the
rate of fifty pet cent in ten years; While iti the
United States he is increasing at neary thirty
per cent in the same period. English states
men and tne English people believe infarcts, and
trust to the veracity of figutes, and it is some

condition of the negro bo Vitally as do these.

North Carolina. A letter from an in'e'-

N. C., to a gentleman of this city, states that
Vance's majority iu Clingmaii's District is 2 049.
Vance is an American. As Tar as heard from,
the Americans have gained 17 members of the
Legislature in the western part of the Stata.
These added to 8 already reported as gained iu
the eastern portion of the State, make twenty-
ve clear gain, which verv nearlv OVprcnmnfi
e Democratic majority in the last Legisla
ture. Col. John A. Vavs is elrctprl in m
House of Commons, from Madison conntv. It
is thought two distribution United States Sen
ators will be elected by the Legislature at its
approaching session."-Jlion-oMery Ala) Mail.
Friend Mail, most of the above is news to us
in North Carolina. But we presume by this time
you have later intelligence and of a different char
acter, 'Tis true that Vance is elected by over
2000 majority, but the Legislature is at least 40
democratic majority, over all opposition, distribu
tion democrats iucluded with thein. If they are
counted as democrats, then we have at least 5G
majority. Therefore you see the chances are
rather slim for electing 2 distribution U. S. Sena
tors. As cuffy would say, "110 inoren'so manv
dead hors-s, will dey.("
