for th dear right of rrettom I have

through th fiery fumare, and cart led with

th good fight was done, and all wit over,
w looked back rejoklng at th danger
w bad escaped, and around ut we hailed
our country a happy land. Tliit it what
we have done for you these are the bles

should be aorrjr to ae them surrendered

of taking care of their liUrty, in vain lid
we fight, in yam did we bleed ! If they
are thut capable, It' them not barter their

thl is constantly growing by the fore e of
custom. Think htrt for a moment of tha
force of custom j it it sly and secret t but
It ia mighty. What, but twenty-three
year ago, wat looked upon aa hartwle

and no doubt, if not pnt down, it wit be

obedience and non resistance will bt

Mr. Maray avowed himself decidedly
for Mr. Calhoun j but he thought the no
tice had been toe short, and that the
meeting had best ac'journ till nest M.w
Court, that an opportunity might he given
Ihe people to attend from Davidson and
Montgomery counties.
Mr. J. Hendrrton replied,-that thie
meeting did not prevent the people of the
other counties from holding similar mee
ting ; that if they should deem them ne
ressary, it would be more convenient to i
assemble in their own counties. At all
events, the notice had keen sufficient to
draw together thi larfce assemblage, from
every Miction of Rowan, and a number of '
respectable gentlemen from Davidson.
