would be arraigned, and their principles called in ques

pected sophiitry i but we did not believe flier would re.
sort to abuae, and back H up with fottrr Hut we are
sony to say we haw been disappointed. - ft Is) surely bad
enough to bt deprived j?four rigbt-itJiout having in
sult and sunder superadded to Icpl injustice and eunsti-
tutioiud tyranny It'JU Jwrniliating enough to be conv
pclied to bow our necks to the yoke, without being told,
that our condition, to be sure, is bad, but that it U better
than freedom.' Such U the manner, however, in which
the free and high-minded people of the Wert are very
eourteoualy treated in the Halifax, Compiler of the 8th
initant, which we have but just now, through the polite,
nets of a friend, obtained sight of. Such is the Way in
hkh the. grievance of the people are disposed of, and
their complaints regarded.
The editor seems to be terribly alarmed, because -the
western people show a commendable resolution to ob
tain a Convention i and Ucaute "the Lut and- greatest
effort" for that purpose, that has ever yet been made,"
will be made at the next tenon of thelf gwlature. And
really, Mr. Wright, it thia any great cVuae of alarm ?
Does thia excite to great an irritability of your nerves t
Doet the voice of the people convey such terror to you I
or are you M only the Punch of the puppctnthew, to apeak
and act as you are prompted by the jugglers behind the
curtain V Be that as H may, you certainly diaplay not
only a groundleaa, but a contemptible (car and besidci,
you abo grosUy libel the people, who, we will inform
you, aa it a fact of which you appear to be ignorant, un
derstand their rights full as well, and are as capable of
exercising them, as their eastern friends, who have so
kindly and charitably taken them into their own keeping.
It will answer very well for the minions of monarchy, or
the caterers of aristocracy, to cry down the people, to
represent them as ignorant, and too dangerous to be en
trusted with power i but such opinions are not suited to
this country j and little did we expect to hear them ut.
ged as a plea against the call of a Convention. In this
country it is believed that the people are capable of gov
erning themselves j the institutions and forms of govern
mcnt throughout the Union, sufficiently evince that they
net 'poKsetscd that ability ? and the Pfopje of tins State
Wilt-ere long- eoimtice even the editor -of tbt 'ilZh&x
Compiler, that they now possess it ' ... , A t
The editor, of the Compiler' acknowledges " the pro
priety with which these gentlemen (i, c. the friends pf a
Convention) urge their claim but still he opposes its
being1 admitted ; and the reasons which he gives are truly
very sapient ones. They are such as the merest school
boy would disdain to use, and which, to borrow a phrase
of his own, only " deserve silent contempt." We shall
here take a jinal leave of this eastern champion, with
barely observing, that should the present effort of the
people-to obtain their rights, not succeed,' it V the
Itut that will be made t they would certainly be undescr
ving of them, could they abandon them so meanly. No :
they will never rest until they obtain those rights and
privileges which are theirs by birth-right, and which no
constitution, no men or set of men can deprive them of,
without the must flagrant injustice.
Some persons have indulged the hope that the eastern
people were entertaining more liberal ideas, and becom
ing less hostile to the rights and interests of the West ;
but the rancor of the Halifax paper, and the more dig
nified and manly hostility of the Cape Fear Recorder and
the Raleigh papers, must convince them of the futility
of their hopes. We feel satisfied that wemust depend
on ourselves alone that to our own exertions, to our
firmness and perseverance, we must look for ultimate
success. t All we have to expect from the east, is the most
determined opposition t justice and right will be thrown
entirely aside, And. power and self-interest be employed
to prevent the call oft Convention, MchJw'ouhT at once
settle all difficulties, and place all the citizens of the state
on an equal footings with eachothcrrasit Tespects thcif
political rights and privileges.

It will be shown, we tliink, when the results of the
tesjent ccpsus are feaown, J)ffi!.jS!it
states has increased very little, and that that of others, if
it has not decreated - has remained nearly in ttutu quo.
Those states whose population will be found to have in
creased the lea$t,;yril, we susp'ect, be Massachusetts,

rated, during thelast t;n years, to create spirit of "em.

the peculiar state of the times during a large proportion;
of that period ; but more out of the blind pojjcy adopted

D. Olmstead, ot the college at CbapeUlill, N. C. to Pro.
feasor H. Silliman, editor of the American Journal of
