friendly support which
has sustained us through the accidents of the-)

last twelve months. Without recurring further
to those uncommon circumstances, which have
blighted the success of the Carolinian, we point
to its unfaltering zeal through all. and ask for
the confidence and sapport of tlt 1

a paper creditable to the party, to the press of

tThe Speakership of the Senate.
As the session of ; the General Assembly ap
proaches and public attention begins to turn in
that direction, the questions are frequently asked,
Who will be Speaker of the Senate? Who of the
House of Commons? Newspapers may without
arrogance discuss such questions, for although they
have no voice in their decision, that being very
wisely left with the legislative bodies themselves,
yet by discussing the merits of particular claim
ants, they direct attention towards these, and pre
vent them from being forgotten, or inadvertently
Wo have been pleased to hear the name of
T. S. D. McDowell, Esq., the able member from
the Senatorial district composed of Bladen Bruns
wick and Columbus, frequently mentioned in con
nexion with the Speakership of the Senate. No
better appointment could be made. Mr McDowell
has frequently been a member of the legislature
and has acquired by service hi both the Senate and
the House of Commons, a large amount of parlia
mentary experience. When last a member of the
Senate, he was frequently called upoa by the
Speaker to preside as Speaker pro tern. This he
always did in a manner highly satisfactory to all
Mr McDowell has recently passed through a
most trying conflict, nadhas signalized his devotion
to democratic principles in a manner which we
cannot soon forget. Through that hard-fought
battle he carried the democratic flag in triumph.
By his efftnrte and tW-e of hia. friends, the nine
teenth Senatorial district has been re-conquered
from the enemy. In no part of North Carolina
was the battle so hotly contested as in that district.
And so doubtful had been the issue, that for some
time after the day of election, it was impossible to
decide who was the victor. When however, it was
known that McDowell was elected the annouce
meut was received by democrats all over the State,
with the most lively satisfaction.
We cannot of course forestall the action of the
Senate, and we would not if we could: but we hazard
nothing in Spying that the elevation of Mr McDow
ell to the Speakership of that body would be a com
pliment well bestowed on one who eminently de
serves it.
What must
be done with the Free
The above question has for some years been
the subject of much anxious thought among
the people of North Carolina. The free negro
population are of no advantage to the State,
and could not under any circumstances be re
lied on as such. On the other hand, they are
really a drawback upon it. Their everlasting
broils with each other, their aversion to labor,
the low state of morals among them, all indi
cate that they are politically and socially a
nuisance and an unmitigated one. They add
nothing to the wealth of the State, for in the
aggregate they consume as much as they pro
duce. They can add nothing to the military
strength of the State in time of war, for who
would be willing to rely upon such a demoral
ized class for protection? Their association
with our slaves, is an injury to the latter, both
as moral beings, and as property having value.
They are often at the bar of justice, and very
fequently as paupers in such cases running
the county in which they live to great cost.
We are confident that we speak the public
sentiment when we say that some amendment
of the law in regard to free negroes is neces
sary. It has been suggested that a law be
enacted allowing all free negroes to leave the
State within a certain fixed time, and reducing
all who remain in the State after that time to
a condition of servitude. Upon this proposition
we are not prepared to express an opinion ei
ther for or against it, saving that it looks a
lettle too summary. Violent remedies for po
litical diseases do not always act' well. They
sometimes react, and by the very hardships
which they superinduce, produce their own
Another suggestion which we have heard on
this subject, is to give the trial of all cases not
capital in which a free negro is defendant, to a
court composed of three magistrates whose
jurisdiction shall be in its application to the
free blacks, coextensive with that of a single
magistrate over slaves, as the law now stands.
This would remove many cases from our courts
and would save the public much expense.
Still another suggestion we have heard in
connexion with this subject, is to substitute
perpetual banishment from the State as the
punishment of all offences of a grave character,
and which do not come under the head of capi
tal felonies. This plan would gradually rid the
a,viatry of the worst of this population,, whilst I
the more meritorious portion would not be
affected by it.
These remarks we throw out merely as noting
the views of individuals or classes of the com
munity. If they contain any suggestians of
value, let them be duly considered by the as
sembled wisdom of the State which is soon to
sit at our Capital. We hope that something
will be done in connexion with this subject.
Judge Douglas.
We confess, with much regret, that the course
of Judge Douglas has become more exceptionable
since we undertook his defence some weeks ago.
Yet, for the same reason we urged on that occa
sion, we desire his re-election to the Senate. His
defeat will denationalize the democratic party of
the North, and give to the Black T?ci.ablicans a
prestige which may elect their Candidate for
President in 1860. Upon all the principles of party
organization, Mr Douglas has hitherto been relia
ble and true, nor has his integrity or good faith as
a national democrat, ever been impenohed, until
the disturbing issues of Lecompton and Kansas

(district Convention of the Illinois Democracy:
Resolved, That we reaffirm our adherence to the
principles of the national Democratic party adopt
ed in the Cincinnati platform.
Resolved. That we herehv renew our exnressions
- eofnfMence hi "tHS puritv." integrity. and Democ
racy of the national administration of Jalfles Bu
chanan, and we heartily declarevur approval of
his policy, particularly with reference to Kansas
Resolved, That we refuse, as national Demo
crats, to acquiesce in, or approve of, the action of
Stephen A. Douglas in his unjustifiable course to
wards the national Democracy in Congress last
winter, deeming it unworthy of his exalted position
and his consistency as a democrat.
Resolved, That we wholly repudiate the heresies
attempted to be forced by our Senator, S. A.
Douglas, on the Democracy of Illinois, and par
ticularly those promulgated in his recent Freeport
Speech, believing the same to be anti-Democratic,
and eminently calculated, if not designed, to sever
the Illinois Democracy from the Democracy of the
Union, and to demoralize and finally overthrow it.
Resolved, That we hereby declare our unquali
fied condemnation of the arrogant and impudent
assumption of Stephen A. Douglas, in forcing
himself upon the attention of the public as the
democratic candidate for the United States Senate,
when in fact he is not a nominated, but an uninvi
ted, self -constituted candidate.
These resolutions exhibit a foi ling of hostility to
Judge Douglas, that seriously impair his chances
for re-election. They embody no specific charge,
nor point at any particular defection, but pluinly
imply a total abandonment on his part of the dem
ocratic party and their time-honored principles.
Mr Douglas is undoubtedly pandering to the
Black Republicans, which interest he conceives to
be essential to his success. Yet, wo will deplore
this necessity less than his defeat and the success
of his competitor.
We commend those sentiments in the resolutions
which endorse Mr Buchanan; yet, it is hardly any
better democracy than that ciinced by Mr Doug
las, to overthrow the latter and thus contribute to
the elevation of Mr Lincoln, who is an open and
avowed Abolitionist, and is even in favor of amal
gamation against every law of decency and com
mon sense. ' ,
This Mr Lincoln, wbo will succeed Mi Douglass '
if the latter is defeated promises to repeal the Dred
Scott decision, and overthrow the pro-slavery in
terest in the Senate. His promises are no index
to his ability to perform, it is true, yet, the' rep
resent his principles and prove that Mr Douglass
is a sounder and safer man.
We are not disposed to repudiate Mr Douglas
simply because he invites "foreign aid" from the
Black republicans, atrocious as it may appear to
the opposition. They do not hesitate to declare
for a Black republican President in preference to
another democratic administration. The Rich
mond Whig, a bold and powerful partizan of the
Know Nothing party has opened the campaign for
Fremont or any other abolitionist that can defeat
the democracy, tharcfore they can hardly have the
impudence to censure Judge Douglas for his sym
pathy with their allies.
The following extract is a portion of Judge
Douglas's speech at Freeport, to which the reso
lutions above take particular exception:
"Mr Lincoln makes a charge of corruption
against the Supreme Court of the United
States, and two Presidents of the United
States and attempts to bolster it up bv saying
that I did the same against the ashingtou
Union. Suppose I did make the charge of
corruption against the Washington Union,
which was true, does that justify him in mak
ing a false charge against nie and osiers? That
is the question I would put. He says that at
the time the Nebraska bill was introduced and
before it was passed there was a conspiracy
between the Judges of the Supreme Court,
President Pierce, President Buchanan, and
myself by that Bill, and the decision of the
court to break down the barrier and establish
slavery all over the Union. Does he not know
that the charge is historically false against
President Buchanan? He knows that Mr
Buchanan was at that time i.i England, repre
senting that country with distinguished ability
at the Court of St. James: that he was there
for a long time before, and did not return for a
year or more after. He knows that to be sure,
and that fact proves his charge to be false,
against Mr Buchanan.
"In a speech which I delivered in answer to
the Washington Union, I made it distinctly
against the Union, against the Union alone.
I did not choose to go beyond that. If I have
occasion to attack the President's conduct, I
will do it in language that will not be misunder
stood. When I differed with the President, 1
spoke out so you all heard me. "That yon
did'" and cheers. That question passed away;
it resulted in the triumph of principle by al
lowing to people to do as they pleased, and
there is an end of the controversy. ("Hear, hear.)
Whenever the great principle of self-government
the right of the people to make their
own Constituiion, and come into the Union
with slavery or without it, as they see proper,
shall again arise you will find me standing
firm in defence of that principle, and fighting
whoever fights it. ("Right, right." "Good,
good," and cheers.) If Mr Buchanan stands,
as I doubt not he will, by the recommendation
contained in his message, that hereafter all
State Constitutions ought to be submitted to
the people before the admission of the State
into the Union, he will find me standing by him
firmly, shoulder to shoulder, and carryiug it

Rob eson Superior Court.
This Court was in session during the present
week, his Hon. Judge Saunders presiding.
The Civil Docket was a large one numbering
some hundred aud odd cases. The State Dock
et we are sorry to say would compare favora
bly (in point of numbers) with any County in
the State, and for variety, if one may be per
mitted to use the expressieu, would satisfy the
most fastidious, comprising every crime almost
known to the criminal law from Murder down.
A negro boy by the iiaiue of Bill belonging to
John C. Baker charged with "Uurglarjjwas
arraigned on Monday evening and remanded
for trial on Wednesday morning, he is said to be
one of the notorious "Big Swamp runaway's "
A member of the bar proverbial for his wit and
good humor when the prisoner was brought into
Court, remarked "that the Court must be in debt
for its bread," and when asked why, replied that
"A Bakers Bill had been presented to it."
The Civil Docket was taken up next and sev
eral Cases disposed of by Tuesday evening. We
were attracted to the Court room on Tuesday
by the large crowed that seemed to be inter
ested in the proceedings and found the Court
engaged in the trial of a cause that commenced
originally before a Justice of the Peace for
($7 50) seven dollars aud fifty cents;- and came
by snccessive appeals to , this Court.": There
were some twelve or Fifteen Witnesses in atteri-j
dance from diferent Counties Some of whom
had been attending since the commencement of
the suit of 1853.
The costs, weare informed, amounts to some
thing over Four Ilundred Dollars. How much
better it would be if such small claims could
be settled without so much cost, and we might
add, how much better it would be if all parties
could agree to some reference of disputed
claims to friends of botli parties, and thus save
a vast amount of time and money to say nothing
about the ill feeling that is too often brought
about by long and vexatious law-suits. We
found Twenty-eight'eases on the Trial Docket
brought by the Wilmington, Charlotte &
Rutherford Rail Road Company against delin
quent subscribers to the stock of said Company
They were commenced before a Justice of the
Peace and brought to this court by appeal. It
seems that the defendants were induced to sub
scribe to the Stock of the Company under the
impression that the Road would be located on
the South side of "Lumber River," at all events,
that an "air line'' directly west from "Walker's
Ferry" via Lumbcrton to Richmond county
line, would not cross Lumber Kiver lire or six
rton and "Floral Col- the GosIel who. Performs any portion of theso sol
emn acts, exercises the "pastoral function" quoad
id would, according to L, tm. . i r .,
times between Lutnbe
lege," and that the roa
the representations made to them when called
on to subscribe, run nearer to them, or at least,
in a different direction from where it is located,
and they resist the payment of the five per
cent, ns required by the Chsrter, on the ground
that they have been imposed upon. The notes
being under seal the parties defendant have
been driven to the Court of Equity for relief
in the premises and the cost "all told, wo are
informed will not fall far short of Four Thou
sand Dollars. It will bear heavily on some of
the parties if they should have the cost to pay.
Would it not be better for the Railroad Com
pany to compromise this matter, or better for
all parties to refer it to soma disinterested party
to settle it without a long and expensive investi
gation at law. We merely make the sugges
tion, we have no interest either way.
The case of the State against Bill, was taken
up on Wednesday morning, and for the absence
of a material witness for the defendant, was laid
over to Thursday morning.
The case of the State against Lewis, a slave of
Eliz'th McPalter, for the murder of Hampden
McKay, was taken up. For the State, Solic
tors Strange, and M. J. McDoffie. For the
defence, N. A McLean, Esq., and Messrs Cam
eron and Shaw. The case of the State against
Cindy, the property of the late J. J. McKay, for
arson, we understood would be tried on Thurs
day after we left.
It is easy for some people to sneer at the seem
ing inconsistency of others; but owing to unfortu
nate antecedents it would bo difficult for some peo
ple to prove that they themselves have always
been consistent. Such persons are exceedingly
fond of scrutinizing the motives of others, but if
their own conduct was submitted to the same criti
cal inquiry, they would doubtless discover that
there were a few sore places upon their epider
mises. Inconsistency does not mean a chango of action
but a change of principle. A man may act dif
ferently at different times from the same principle"
or a man may not change his actions and still be
inconsistent, for circumstances aro continually
changing, and the principle that would prompt a
man to act at one time in one way might at another
time prompt him to act entirely different. When
Henry Clay changed his position upon the Bauk
question his apology which was considered per
fectly satisfactory (we suppose even by Andrew
Jackson Whigs) was that the country and not
himself had changed. Clay was consistent, Jack
son whigs were consistent, but "Wise, Faulkner,
Cushing, Toombs, Clingman, and Stephens a
mere hankering after office and spoils the last
consideration of a real patriot."
What a corrupt party the old Whig party must
have been, if all those who supported James
Buchanan for the Presidency were actuated in
doing so, by "'a mere hankering after office and
1 spoils". And when we consider that if tho South
had been divided iu the last Presidential election
which might have been the case if the old whig
party had supported Mr Fillmore that a Black
Republican probably would have been elected, and
the Union might have been dissolved, we are
forced to concludo that the "last consideration of a
real patriot" is a glorious consideration.

any denomination, Bholl be -capable of being a

or Council of State, while he continues in the
exercise of the pastoral function.
Constitution of N. C, Sec. 31. '
AU clergymen in tho exercise of the 'pastoral
function" are disqualified, by tho Constitution of
North" Carolina, from holding a scat in the House
of Commons. In giving a construction to this pro
vision of the organic law, it will be proper in the
first palace to look for the reasons which led to its
adoption. We find in the Constitution, and adopt
ed at the same time with the section under consid
eration, a prohibition of any religious establish
ment. The mother country by her constitution,
united Church and State, and allowed the dignita
ries of her church to sit in one of the Houses of
Parliament as Lords Spiritual. Our ancestors
wished to guard against the union of Church and
State. If such a union should ever occur, it was
believed that it would be through the influence of
the clergy. It was believed that this class so
deeply, absorbed in tho welfare of particular
churches, might not unnaturally desire to see their
respective churches placed upon a permanent tem
poral footing, by being connected with the Gov
ernment. If clergymen entertainiug such ambi
tious designs were permitted to occupy seats' in the
legislature, facilities would be afforded to carry
out thi-ir purposes. As a preventive against all
mlW!H(, tho whole t!o of Dreacbera a-xer-
rising the -prstoral fanetion" was excluded. A
pastor is a minister of th gospel who has charge
f a church and congregation. Do the reasons
upon which pastors are excluded apply to any
others? Undoubtedly they do. There is just as
much danger to the particular feature of our gov
ernment, to piotect which tho section under exami
nation was inserted, to be apprehended from a de
signing priest who resigns the charge of his flock
for the sake of political preferment, as from one
who continues in the office of pastor. The policy
of the framers of the Constitution, was to exclude
all who by reason of their relation to tho Church,
raight be considered probable enemies to that com
plete separation of State from Church, which it
iras their purpose to ensure. So far then as we
san perceive the reasons which brought about the
xdoptiou of this section, they go to the exclusion
from the business of legislation, not only of all pas
tors having the charge of particular congregations
but also of all who retain the rank mid cxereite
tie authority of clergymen in their respective
The exercise of the "pastoral function" implies
the performance of various duties. Among these
ire tho preaching of the gospel, the administra
tion of the sacraments of the Lord's Supper, and of
baptism, the celebration of tho rites of matrimony
and other acts of this class. Now a preacher of
buese avis. a uj ti3iuiui luiicuou is 11KO ine
function of thought, susceptible of various exer
cises. The mind is a unit, but it may be employed
in observing, in remembering, in imagining, and in
judging. A man who employs himself in imagina
tive speculations, exercises tho function of thought.
When a man observes or remembers, he exercises
the function of thought. Just so a clergyman,
(though ho. be not a pastor) when he celebrates the
rights, of matrimony, exercises the "nastcral
To hold that the constitution excludes only
pastors would be to make the word "function"
equivalent to the word "office". There is a marked
difference between the two. An office is the right
to perform certain dutios and to enjoy certain cor
responding advantages. The word function (from
the Latin J'ungor to do, to perform) implies actual
performance. . Iy the common Law a pastor
might employ a substitute to perform his pastoral
duties. This substitute is called n curate. This
latter exerclsas the pastoral function, inasmuch as
he performs such of the pastoral duties ns may be
assigned him. But he does not hold the office of
pastor, and is not entitled to any of the rights ap
pertaining to that office. The pastor holds the
office, but the curate performs the function. Would
a curate bo eligible to a seat in the legislature?
Clearly not. The reasons of the law are against
him, and the language of the Constitution is also
against him. To exclude pastors aud admit curates
would be a refinement altogether beyond the ordi
nary apprehension of mankind. Tho case of a
curate docs not materially differ from that of a
regularly ordained minister of the .gospel, who
without having a church and flock, occasionally
exercises the functions of his sacred office. Neither
holds tho office, but both exercise the function of
a pastor, and both, therefore, are excluded by the
constitution from a scat in either Houso of the
General Assembly.
The Speakership. The Standard of the
29th contains an article recommending Hon.
Bedford Brown, the Senator from Caswell, as
a gentleman eminently qualified for the Speak
ership of the Senate. Mr. Brown is a veteran
democrat, a tried and true statesman, and well
worthy the highest confidence of the party.
And whilst we have in another portion of this
paper expressed a preference for T. S. D. Mc
Dowell, Esq., for that high position, it gives
us great satisfaction to bear witness to the
worthiness of Mr Brown, and his entire fitness
for the Speakership.
Mr Bridgers, of Edgecombe, is also recom
mended by a correspondent of the Standard,
for the Speakership of the House of Commons.
Mr B. has served two terms iu the Legisla
ture, and has acted in the responsible position
of Chairman of the the Judiciary Committee
He is, in the language of the Standard's cor
respondent, "au experienced parliamentarian, a
sterling democrat, and a highly educated and
intelligent gentleman." Mr Settle of Rock
ingham, Mr Badham of Chowan, and Mr Hill
of Halifax, have also been mentioned in connex
ion with the Speakership of the House. Any
one of these gentlemen would fill the Speaker's
chair with ability and tact, and we arc prond
that the Democratic Party contains so many
among whom the House can make becoming
election. Whoever may be chosen to preside
over either House, will hardly fail to give entire
e nave received an invitation to be
present, at the celebration of the completion
of the Western N. C. Railroad, at Statesville
on the 14th of this month, and were it possible
would be most happy to be in attendance on
that interesting occasion.
