In the House of Commons of N. C. oo
eron rciolutiom prcicnted on Saturday, were
called up and read, at followa :
7?fi flv J, ThatlKe Solicitor General of this
state, with such council as he shall, associate
with himself, be, and is hereby authorised and
required to commence and carry on a criminal
proaecution against John Wright, of Halifax,
the printer of a paper published there under
the name and style of the "Halifax Compi
ler, for a libel contained in his paper upon
the committee of this house, appointed to in
vestigate the conduct of John Haywood, Pub
lie Treasurer ; and also against the author or
authors of said libel, if he or they can be dis
Resolved. That the Speaker of this house be
requested to transmit to the Solicitor General
a copy of the above resolution, together with
the original libel.
Mr. Thomas W. Dlackledge moved to post
pone the resolutions indefinitely in which
motion he was supported by Mr. H. A. Jones,
and perhaps others, on the ground that the
publisher wa& a man whose standing in aocie
ty was too contemptible to be noticed by the
legislaturethat he was void of talents, prop
erty or respectable standing, and that it would
be undignified in the House of Commons to
notice him. That the committee, against
whom the libel was leveled, were gentlemen
too well known for talents and integrity to
be affected by a publication from such a
The indefinite postponement of the resolu
tions was opposed by Messrs. Moore, Cam
eron, Iredell, L. Martin, and perhaps others,
on the ground that the insignificance of an of
fender should not protect him from the pillo
ry, or save his ears. That the house united
In complimenting the committee for their tal
ents, independence and patriotic investigation
of the subject committed to them, and certain
ly were bound to protect their characters a-
gainst such vile and slanderous publications.
The resolutions passed, by yeas 72, nays 25.
The minority professed themselves to be in
fluenced by the conviction that it would be
undignified to notice an individual so contemptible.
Mr. L. Martin then moved to amend the
resolutions by requiring the Attorney General
instead of the Solicitor General to prosecute
stating that the Attorney General resided
in sight of the accused, and the Solicitor 100
miles from him. This was objected, to, and
an honorable gentleman was named by Mr.
Moore who had heard the Attorney General
acknowledge that he had the controul of the
offensive press and a member being called
on in his place, confirmed the statement, that
he had also heard the Attorney General say
that all pieces were submitted to his inspec
tion to-be pruned, &c. before they were pub
lished. It was therefore the intention of the
house to punish those who had the direction
of the press, rather than the poor insignificant
printer. ' !...
Mr. Martin then asked leavelo withdraw
his amendment, which was granted. -
- IN SENATE. -- '
Mr. Connor moved toakeupjheresolu-.
ticn directing the Solicitor General to prose
cute the printer and publisher of a libel in the
Halifax Compiler on the committee of inves
tigation into the official conduct of the Public
Treasurer. There was some debate on the
subject. That we might be able to state the
reasons, which influenced the Senate on that
occasion, (being absent ourselves,) we have
applied to a'friend who furnished the following
sketch.;. ., --tz
that any notice should be taken of the print
er r it would bring him into notice ; and for
his part .he thought it would be a prostitu
tion ot the dignity ot the house. 1 he arti
cle in the paper might be libellous, but he had
his doubts, and he would be obliged if the
gentleman from Rowan (Mr. Locke) would
inform the house what was his opinion of the
Mr. Locke said that it was his opinion
that it was clearly a libel ; but from the slight
attentibn which he had had an opportunity of
gi ving to the subject he might be mistaken. It

of bringing into some tort of conse
quence a beinff who deserves the contempt of
the world. He said he was not entirely clear
that the libellous matter contained in the pub
lication alluded to was such at would sustain
a prosecution and upon cool reflection had
determined in hit own mind to vote against
the resolutions he said he was one of the
committee of investigation, whose charactert
and motives had been assailed by this pitiful
printer ; that he had resolved to pay no sort
of attention to the vile aspersions that might
appear in this paper called the Halifax Com
piler. That, as one of that committee, he
could say he felt conscious of having dischar
ged his duty to his country and to his God
And, as for any thing this printer could say,
he held it, and the printer, and his abettors
in utter contempt, and beneath his notice and '
the notice of the legislature. .That he would -
treat them as he would a puppy daring to bark
at him, he would disdain to turn upon his heel
to kick him. That he believed the disgrace
intended to attach to others upon this occasion
would finally recoil upon the heads of those
who deserved it.
Mr Daker said that he was surprised at
the apathy of the Senate ; an attack has been
made on a committee of the two houses be
cause they, in the execution of their duty,
had not pleased the editor of this libellous
paper. Although he might agree with the
gentleman from Surry una others in the way
which would be best to treat the "puppy" yet
there was another Important circumstance
which could not escape the observation of the
Senate. The Solicitor General was directed
to prosecute a libeller, who lived in view of
a legal officer of high station under the gov
ernment of the state. He would not venture
to point out the particular person who was
evidently alluded to ; but no person can doubt
that there is some one behind the curtain.
For having expressed his opinions on this
occasion, he might subject himself to attack
