At a late meeting of the officers and
managers f the Halcigh llible Society,
taya the Register of the Cih lost., an
Agent was appointed to go through
this County, for the purpose of in
creatine: the circulation of the Bible.
in oursuance of a Resolution pissed at
the annual meeting in December last.
The Rev. Mr, Winston, an Agent
of ther American Biblr Society, (of
Which this Society la Auxiliary,) bring
present, he was requested to give to
ihe meeting such information -at he
"had beeo'abW to eollect in thejur
uey which he had lately taken through
this" State, in order' to ascertain the
state of the Bible cause. This re
quest was cheerfully complied with,
and the account proved very interest
ing to the Board."-NlnW. is nf opin
ion, that there Ire in this State, ten
thousand- families destitute of the
Bible r that tn one-half the Cooirtiea
there are no Bible Societies - that
many of the Societies in existence are
very inelEcient, some of them not hav.
ing met for two, three or four years j
that in some portions of the State, the
operations of Bible Societies are op
posed, even by those who profess to be
Christians. But though these facts ;
wediscouraging, it is believed, that
the Bible is gaining efficient, zealous .
friends and advocates, in many parts
of the State. The Iredell Bible So
ciety has resolved to supply the des
titute io that county, nd the wotk is
by this time probably effected. There
were found in Iredell, more than 230
families without a Bible. This fact
waa ascertained "by the Sheriff of the
County, at the time he collected the
taxes. Granville Couotv will proba
bly be supplied with Bibles in a few
weeks, agents having been engaged
to effect the object; and the Bibles be-
ing on. hancL -The Orange Bible So
ciety have also passed a similar reso
lution, and it is hoped the object will
aooinhee fle cledTesldeslh e seCoun.
- ties, the Societies-in-seven or eighT
others have expressed their detcrroin
- anion to ascertain the wants of the des
titute lamiUes -w'uh'm-their - bounds,
. during the present . summer, w.itLfa
r view to supply them as soon as prac.
On hearing what had bcenffected in
Tfedettan whitr wlH probalsbon'
be accomplished in Granville, Orange
"and other Coupties, this Society has
resolved, in case the Agent now em
pU'vrd t should not accomplish the
work, to obtain like information by
means of the Magistrates appointed
io the several Captain's Districts, lor
receiving the lists of taxable property.

John C. Calhoun as Vice Prcaident.
The couniin composing the said Elec
toral district, being called over, it ap
peared that regular meetings had taken
place in Burke and Haywood j and
their representatives in this convention
duly appointed. The county of Ruth
erford being caned, Mr. Carton, from
that county, stated, that no meetings
purposely on the subject of the Presi
dential Election had been called in
that county j but the Grand Jury, at
their last superior court, having been
discharged from any further atten
dance upon the court,' formed them
selves into a committee, and resolved,
unntiimoutty, that they would use all
la w fid, fair and honourable meant Co
promote ..the. election of yf. ttchonj
President, and ; John . C. Calhoun as
Vice President. . They then appointed
to meet io this convention t His cot-
leagues and himself believing it to be
a very-convenient and fair' teat of the
voters sentrmentsrn their crunryf-havef
attended, and offer this recmmeoda
tin as their credential. . Which be
ing approved of,' nemine eontrtt dis
ccnte, the. members proceeded to or
ganize the convention.
Mr. John McDowell of Rutherford,
was appointed President s sod Col,
Alneu- Burrin secretary. Mr. Car
son, of Rutherford, stated that there
having definite number of
members fixed upon as the ratio of
any county, they were-unequally rep
resented : he moved, therefore, that
in voting for the candidate to be pro
posed, they should ballot by counties,
and not . by polls... .This . proposition
being agreed to, tbe representatives of
each county withdrew and after due
consideration, reported each in favour

Wretched Depravity We reluc

on us as public journalists, io noticing
what we believe to be an unpreceden

the court-house, on suspicion of hav
ing morcTered a infant child, of which

was concerned its ihe foul trantauion
Charged against them, the Sheriff of
Lincoln, and others, went in pursuit
of him,, and overtook and arretted
him iu Mecklenburg county; from
whence he was taken to Lincoloton
and lodged in jail on Sunday. All
three of the parties were examined be
fore a special court of magistrates j
and the folio ving facts, among others,
came out in evidence, or by the vol
uotary confession of the parties:
, . The younger of the rslstcrs jrno was
only between 13 and 14 -years Id,
wasdtlivtred of a li ving child j which ,
her elder sister killed' and buried in "
thegarden being:'instigated thereto
by the threats of her brother, who de
clared he would kill her if she did not
do so.. ..and wh", the girls say, is the
father of the child ! Previous" to the
arrest of the girls, their brother made
bis iescapef went. into Vicckiecbur- -county,
was married to a respectable
yung lady on Thursday, aod was ap
prehended, as above stated, by the
Sheriff of Lincoln, on Saturday night.
We refrain from entering into fur
ther particulars of this unique and
aoul-aickening transaction, or from in
dulging in such reflections as the oc

due time, there will be a judicial in
