The Lrgittuturi of ibis ntate, accord
in t; to provision of the Constitution i were
lo' have convened at Raleigh yesterday.
We know of no specific lubject of my
deep interett, that will come before thrm
in their constitutional capacity, thit tt
lion I but tlixre.li a cute wbich ionr us
age hat enjoined upon the members, l
(ill importanllo the people of tba State
ind of tba Union; wblchMiey will be call
ad to perform previous to the risina; o
the Leptlature. A Domination of can
didatca for Elecjars of President and Vice
President will undoubtedly be made and
at the people hitherto have elected thote
perioht nominated by the General At
tembly, it it etpected and demanded
of the membert that they uleci tuch
candidaiet for Electort at will vote in ac
cordance with tjie wiabea and interests of
their constituents. A considerable warmth
of feeling, it it expected, will ba created
among the membert oo the tubject of the
Prcftidcncys especially if a proposition it
brought forward to alter the mode of
choosing Electort. The probability, how
ever, now it, thai the Indignant frowns of
the people on thit desperate scheme will
deter ill radical projector! from bringing
it bafofe the Legislature. But those
membert who are faithful to their constit
ucntt and their country, will be wary of
the movements of certain personages dur
ing the first of the session, who will be
busy about the State House, without any
ostensible buinei$ there.
There is one subject which, amidst all
the political ferment and turmoil of the
limes, we hope will not be passed by un
noticed. The subject of dutin hat
been too long neglected by the Legiala
ture but we hope at this session tome
thing will be done lo encourage it. We
have a well endowed and very respectable
University j but its advantages are too re-
l"0' from, Jj) treat. jnass. of. the .papula-,
tion of the state, to be felt and apprecia
ted, by them. The people at large are de
plotably deficient Tn the rudimtntt of an
T w ' " tmw t .
eaucaijon. 10 obviate tnit, primary
schools are wanting." No appropriation
which the Legislature could make, would
be ao little objected to at one for the tup
port of common schools. We do hope
tome member will make an experiment
tbls session, and tee what can be done in
the Legislature on thit tubject;

The verity of the above distich was,
perhaps, never more strongly illustrated
than in the character and conduct of the
editor dt facto) the tfatftington OVy
Gazette, For .more than a year past, the
editorial management ef that psper has
been marked by a scurrility of stylo add
ffourished in those dayvwould have sha
of decency, that those acquainted with its
character have discarded.it frorti their cir
