CUMBERLAND COUNTY" FAIR.
This F air comes off next week. are we ready
for it? We are afraid that our farmers generally
do not sufficiently appreciate its importance to
them. When we see every other section waking
up on the subject of Agriculture, and then see the
little interest taken to improve our farms by pru
dent and thorough cultivation of the differentciops
in all the Cape Fear country, we feel that we are
a long ways behind in the race of improvements,
and that something should be done to effect a
change. There is no article of produce necessary
for consumption, that nearly all our farmers are not
compelled to buy, more or loss, while at the same
time their land is well adapted to the cultivation
of every species of grain, to say nothing about
cotton, hemp, tobacco, and other articles for sale
and export. Instead of making corn and wheat,
and raising their own pork in the first place, and
giving their spare time from their farms to getting
timber and making turpentine, they get timber and
Jurpcnetine first and then give their spare time to
making the very articles of all others that they
need the most. Their stock is generally neglected
because they are afraid they will not have enough
to last the year through if tlu-y should feed high,
: their fences are neglected and allowed to grow up
in weeds and bushes because their Lands are too
much engaged at timber, their lands are not
broken up in the fall, but are allowed to remain
without ploughing until it is time to plant, and
that late in the spring. This system is followed
until their timber is exhausted, their land worn out
and worthlesss, and then we are told that this is no
farming country, and they must go to the West
whjcre land is better. Now, is this right, can you
work always without rest and food ; can you work
your horses or mules always without rest and food ;
can you find land in the far West that will last
always without careful cultivation and improve
ment ? We think not. We think that the same
labor, the same cultivation and improvement of the
laud in Cumberland and Harnett, yea, the whole
Cape Fear country, will insure you success ; and
we ask you to attend the Fair, compare notes with
each ;her, talk to each other about the different
methods of improvement, the different methods of
ploughing your land, the time-to plough and the
time to plant, it will pay y.;u better than the same
t'nn employed in any other way.
L,et any mail examine our soil, and he will sec
that wheat may bo raised to as good advantage on
iho Cape Fear and all the lands contiguous thereto,
jis in any portion of the State. They have raised
in portions of l'obeson county, whore the land is
no better, if as good as ours, within the last two or
three years, as good wheat a could bo desired,
and now that a large portion of the wheat raised in
the western counties is carried to Norfolk, instead
of Fayetteville and Wilmington, would it not be
well for our farmers to look to this subject, for now
is the time to plant, for next year.
Tho Exceulive committee have spared no pains
to have every thing in readiness for the occasion,
and we call upon our citizens throughout the coun
ties of Cumberland and Harnett, to come forward
and do their part. Urine; all you can with you for
exhibition, the premiums will be liberal, and they
will be paid in cash. There is .id citizen of this
section of country that is not interested in this
enterprise. The mechanic has an opportunity of
gaining for himself the reputation of a good work
man, the agriculturalist is benefited by the inter
change of views and sentiments of others engaged
in the same laudable calling, to wit: the improve
ment of the soil. The wholo community is bene
fitted by the spirit of emulation and rivalry to ex
cel in the various branches of industry, the resour
ces of our country are developed, the tide of emi
gration is stayed, we are contented to remain in
the land of our Fathers, when we see that we have
very facility here to make for ourselves a home
and a fortune.
We repeat that our soil is well adapted to the
cultivation of overy species of produce, if we will
give it the same labor and attention we would be
compelled to bestow upon a new home, and wo hope
that our people will turn their attention to the farm,
the man who makes corn first, and money after
wards, is the surest to succeed, and if our farmers
will trv it we will soon see a diffierent state of
things. Our Fathers made corn and bacon, and
bought Turpentine. We make turpentine and buy
corn and bacon, it don't pay in the long run. Now
let us reverse it ; let us return to the ways of our
fathers, and successs will crown our efforts.
We call upon the ladies to come forward and aid
in their department, they never fail in anything
they undertake, and we hope they will attend iu
crowds. There will be nobody present but what
will be glad to see them. We call attention to the
card of the Secretary below :

THE MEXICAN PROTECTORATE.
The people of the United States, like every
other progressive people, are fond of acquiring
territory, and are sometimes inclined to place a
fictitious valuation upon such acquisitions. Ever
since we were compelled to whip Mexico into
something like rationality on the Texas question,
and as a consequence acquired a portion of her
domain as indemnity for tho losses sustained in the
war, there has been a strong feeling among our
people in favor of further acquisitons. Much has
been lately said in favor of our government per
forming the duty of giving law and order to unhap
py and distracted Mexico, by assuming a protec
torate over that country. There is a vast amount
of common sense in the old saying about minding
one's own business. The Father of his Country,
in his -farewell address, warned his countrymen
against entangling alliances with foreign powers.
Could he have foreseen the time when carried
away by the lust of power they should have aban
doned the old platform of attending to their own
business in order to carry the blessings of peace
to a people who do not desire it, and of republican
ism to thos'e who cannot appreciate or understand
it, he would without doubt have warned us against
the inordinate desire of national aggrandisement.
A protectorate over Mexico, for the purpose of
establishing peace and good government where
anarchy now rules, sounds very philanthropic.
But are we quite sure that the germ of anarchy is
extinct in our own soil? Are human rights and
good government so well secured at home that we
can afford to go off in search of subjects upon
which to exercise our meddlesome benevolence?
Are there no mobs at home who rise up to thwart
the execution of the laws of the land? This Mexi
can protectorate savors rather too much of the
spirit of British aggressiveness and New England
double distilled charity which begiuncth anywhere
except at home. We confess we do noc with the
lights before us, much like it.
But it is said that Mexico under our protection,
will become a fine cotton growing region. If so
tt.cn tl.p sVmih should nniuisn the movement. It
is not our policy, by opening up an immense cotton j
country, raising up competition and stimulating
production, to reduce the price of our great staple, j
England and the New England States, might be j
benefitted by such a policy, not we. It is said,
moreover, that Mexico will furnish an outlet for i
slavery. Slavery wants no outlet. It. rather j
wants an inlet. Else why do we hear so much
about reopening the slave trade? We have room !
for all our slaves and a many more.
Nor can we anticipate from the acquisition of
Mexican soil, any addition to the political strength
of the South. Mexico under a protectorate would
bo formed into States, many of which composed
of Yankees, free negroes and half caste natives,
would be soon found knocking at the gate of the
Union for admittance as sovereign States upon
terms of equality, with the rest.
Once under our sheltering wing, they would em
ploy themselves in hatching plans for liberating
our slaves and colonizing them into their own
Moreover, we question much if Uncle Sam has a
sufficient naval armament and military force to
protect in time of war, the immense possessions
which he has already acquired. If we are to as
sume the protectorate of Mexico, we must begin
by doubling our army and navy. This would of
coure greatly increase the taxes of the .people and
miffht be the beginning of a system which would
end in a military and naval establishment commen
surate with those maintained by the first rate low
ers of Europe. Every true patriot would depre
cate such a result. We advocate the doctrine of
mindincr our own business. Eet us do this and let
Mexican Protectorates alone.
A BAD EXAMPLE.
It is not politicians only that quarrel and abuse
each other, nor is it among sinners alone that hu
man nature exhibits its frailty, and betrays its
weakness and evil passions.
A pious writer in the P.-ueigli Christian Advo
cate, impeaches the christian integrity of another
brother pilgrim, and charges him with nil manner
of evil doing, "pride, vain-glory, and hypocracy,"
and begs the "Lord to have mercy upon him."
There is no dearth of ugly words in tho article,
or much suggestive of uncommon piety. The
bitterness and violence which characterize the
communication evince any thing else than the
spirit of "brotherly love" or christian benevolence.
Both are ministers of the Gospel and profess its
pure morality; the office of both is to preach
and inculcate the attribute's of the meek and lowly
saviour, of him who bade us "love one another."
The mission of both is to exalt christian character
and the duty of both is to exalt in themselves its
"The fruits of righteousness" are not seen in
newspaper squabbles, nor is the sacred office they
claim properly respected therein.
We do not profess religion, and we fear we never
shall if it must be the religion taught in such examples.

Our neighbor of the Observer gives us, in a
late issue, a short chapter about signs which,
from its playful tone, we suppose is intended to
relieve the usual gravity and seriousness of its
semi-weekly deliverances upon might' political
subjects. We too could speak of some curious
sights in the way of signs ; for we not long
ago passed by a store, in our good old town,
on the outside of which ite ambitious proprie
tor had announced in flaming capitals, that
within might be found " dry-goods such as meal,
sugar and coffee, Sec." enumerating quite a
lengthy catalogue but without including there
in a single rag : whether '-bank rags," of the j
THE AliaUS AND OPPOSITION".
The Argus, in reply to an article in the Caroli
nian, declares the meaning of the term "whig," to
We are perfectly satisfied with the definition,
but are inclined to doubt whether very many of
those whd--iri disowning know nothingism call
themselves whigs, will accept the explanation of
the Argus The true followers of Henry Clay
wouH uevie acknowledge a baud of union with the
enemies of 44? South ; never confess tt an alliance
with any parly, any organization however lawless
or unprincipled, however base and unscrupulous,
that caJed -themselves the "opposition-". It is
the "opposition" that is swelling the ranks of the
Black republicans; ; that is filling Congress with
! the foes of the South, aad its institutions; tuat is
value of " one dollar and upwards," or rags of j tramplingf the Constitution,, and aimin
any kind. And we passed, but a short while
since, a low and dirty cabin by the road-side,
within whose walls, as a shingle in the corner
of the fence indicated, might be found, by those
who were fool hardy enough to test the truth
of the advertisement ina practical manner, a
moderate quantity of " whiskey phor sail."
But we are not disposed to dilate upon signs
such as these, neither have we the heart to en
counter the maze of perplexity into which we
might be led, by attempting to solve the diffi
cult question of what was intended by the "sign
of the grindstone." Our business at present is
with matters of a difierent kind and with signs
which, in their importance, outweigh a whole
quarry of the stone upon which either " axis"
or " paper" or " noses " are "ground." We
would inquire about the probable result of pre
sent indications and what we may reasonably
infer from events, which have recently trans
pired in the political world ; which have given
to the opposition press and orators so much
cause for congratulation, and which they affect
to regard as the sure index of what is to fol
low, the shadow which coming events are cast
ing before. With great solemnity figures are
paraded, and it is said, that figures do not lie.
Yet it is well known that the answers which
figures give are due entirely to the manipula
tion to which they are subjected ; they are
very pliable and almost any result may be ob
tained, by a slip here or there in the calcula
tion. It is said with :io little exultation that
the administration has been defeated and there
is no stint of prophecy as to the future of de
mocracy. According to these wiseacres, whose

It is the jj; position " that would make Frcc
mont Preside and Wilson, Wade, and G hidings,

Argus claims an identity.
Xow, about " Charles the first," and "Crowned
heads,", "rriffingement," "trampled people," "To
ries," "thunder," ore, &c, is all stuff.
There is nothing sensible or politic in the fanati
cal hostility displaced by the Argus against the
Administration and the democratic party. It is
highly absurd for any Southern journal, at this
time to take such offensive ground. It is patent
to every mittf that the defeat of the democracy at
t i "f rfer&"i'T r" t--'"' the Argus is exulting,
wTas the result of Mr Buchanan's Kansas policy,
and his even handed justice io the South. The
defection of Douglas and Forney, is hardly a proof
to the contrary. The frenzied oppposition of the
Argus to the democratic party is purely malicious,
it is the only party that is identified with the South
or that can protect its interests, the other alterna
tive in the present state of national politics, is
Black republican rule. If the Argus prefers that,
then we grant to its "opposition"' some consis
tency and nationality. We quote from the Argus:
" Do you hear the muttering thunder it is the
voice of the people of Pennsylvania and Indiana,
and Ohio and Iowa it is the voice of the Opposi
tion sp&akiifg condemnation to the Democracy."
We,, don't hear any " thunder," friend Aruzs,
but we hear the voice of the " opposition" speak
from the lips of Giddings :
" I look forward to the day when there shall bo
a servile insurrection in the South ; when the black
man armed with British bayonets, and led on by
British orators, shall assert his freedom and wage
a war of extermination against his master; when
the torch of the incendiary shall light up the
towns and cities of the South, and blot out the last
vestige of slavery. And though I may not mock
at their calamity and laugh when their fear Cometh,

his high character, gentl- manlv bearing
courteous and polished manners. " It is true
he was dangerously sick during a portion
of the last session of Congress, but that was
a misfortune (and not a fault) common to
all mankind. We know that Senator Held
would not only be gratified but feel hihlv
complim nted upon his re-election and" we
ra.e full confidence that the Democracy will
stand by him. We know it has been" said
by some, that lie hv.a already had honor
enough. The allusion must be to his service
in the Senate. How long there has he
ser ed? 4 years yet there are othe s who
have served a longer time, without having
rendered any special s rvice previous to
their election. Surely they do not allude to
his election as Governor, for it was that
very act which brought us into power. We
admit, it is easy for some to forget the past
services of others and this is a convenient
mode of thrusting a man aside but it is
not so with the Democracy of North Car
olina. David S. Jteid is by far the most
popular man in the State and if the people
could vote, the returns would show it. He
has always been a Democrat and maintained
and defended the principles of his party
down to the present hour and lias been suc
cessful. We would ask, who has done as
much? If the veterans of our party are to
be overthrown to make room for those of less
service, the effect upon our party must be
discouraging and painful, perhaps disastrous.

bounded by any locality; it can be found

o-rateful to their constituents and whilst manv
have risen to eminence after leaving our
State, David S. Iteid is s ill sustaining the
flag of democracy in his native State. If he
should be re-elected, it would be felt as a
compliment paid to the Democracy of the
State, and stand as si lasting assurance that
those who have toiled so long in her defence,
shall not be forgotten.

throw to that party which, iu 1856 over-rode
all opposition as it had done four years prece

even its longer continuance as a national or

the horizon, though we should admit that it is
overcast with some lowering clouds.

as the past was so shall the future be.
The reasons why we argue that Democracy
is 'permanent are various : It recognizes the
sovereignty and intelligence of the people ;
thus proving itself to have been a fundamental
principle with those who threw off the joke of
foreign bondage, and both asserted and main
tained our right to freedom and independence;
it plants itself upon the constitution recogniz

In another article of the same paper, the recent

exultation , the extremity of the Argus is great, to
be sure. A miserable, rowdy set of blackguard
