Saturday Morning, October 17, 1835.
Erratum. In the commencement of the article in
.aur last paper oa the subject of the amended Constitu
tion, we committed an error m stating that it was to be
submitted to the people "on the 11th, 15th, and lGth
iays ef November." The Oth, 10th, and 11th are the
.flays. The error escaped our notice until our papers
-ere nearly all struck otF when it was corrected.
-"Ratification" or "Rejection!"
OnMOXDAY, TUESDAY, and WED.
XESDA Y, the XIXT1I, TEXTH, and ELE
YEXTH of Xovember next, are the days appoint
ed for the People of Xorth Carolina to decide
the fate of the Amended Constitution whether
or no they are trilling that those amendments shall
form a part of our State Constitution.
Upon this decision hangs the fate of X. Carolina !
.For, if the voters of the Western counties should
.stay at home and permit themselves to be defeat
ed in this struggle for their rights, all future
efforts will bo entirely usele-s. As heretofore,
jcut up by local party divisions and sectional jeal
ousies, the friends of enterprise and improvement
will at length cease their hitherto unavailing exer
tions, and abandon their native Stale in desponden
cy, as thousands have already done. But, on the
contrary, if the full strength of the Western coun
ties shall be put forth in favor of Ratification,
a refreshing impulse will be given to our languish
ing energies. We verily believe, that if the Con
stitution as amended is ratified by the people, and
thereby settle all cause for further controversy be
tween the East and West, and restore harmony to
our hitherto distracted councils, a new and bright
era will commence in the history of North-Carolina.
Then let all come to the polls, on one of the three
days appointed, and vote with a view to the good
of his State, and the benefit of posterity.
We intend printing a large number of Tickets
for "RATIFICATION and will be prepared to
supply orders far and near.
Judicial The Fall Term of the Superior Court for
this county, commenced its session in this place on
Monday lat, Judge Norwood sitting. Daniel Albright
was put upon his trial, for negro stealing, on ThursJay,
and acquitted. We are pleased to see that the enera
ble Judge's health is so far restored, as for him to be
able to attend to the duties of his station with his usual
We publish in to-day 'a paper two excellent articles,
headed Abolition, from the New York Courier &. Enqui
rer on the policy of England in reference to Abolition
;n this country. Though England has long vaunted it
self the chatnpoin of Liberty and its last stay in the old
world, and not without some show of reason ; we be
lieve that no other foreign Government entertains sen
timents so hostile to this Republic and to such of our
lustitutions as are distinctively American as are felt and
regularly acted on by the British Legislature and the
British Cabinet in all its change?. Despotic Austria
which cherishes with imperial faor the St. Leopold Soci
ety professedly instituted to promulgato opinions reli
gious and political inconsistent with a Republican Go
vernment, wages a Jess bitter and far less efficient war
against Republican America than the masked attacks
proceeding from the British Tory press, BritL.li travel
lers and British Legislation. The reason of this is
obvious. It does not escape the sagacity of English
Politician?, that there is already so great a similarity be
tween the .two Governments in some respects, and the
constitution of society in the two countries, as to require
no very violent change to wcep at once away the mo
narchy with its appendages and trappings and therewith
the grinding taxes which maintain them. With the
increase of intelligence among the mass of their sub
ject?, and our hitherto bright example before them, there
has been an increasing and irresistible progress towards
more liberal institutions. To do away tho effect of our
example, is a most important object with tho?e who com
pose the titled and privileged classes the nobility tlie
Government. For this purpose a dissolution of our
Union is regarded as of paramount importance and
tbr long years it has been seen that the agitation of
Slavery was most lively to effect this end. English
travellers have misrepresented Slavery English re
viewers have built arguments on these misrepresenta
tions and denounced it. The travels and Reviews have
been reprinted and extensively read ia the Northern
States. The British Parliament has legislated on W.
India Slavery to the same end. Does any one who has
watched closely the progress of West India Emancipa
tion, believe that humanity had any hare in those
measures ? Not the least in the world. The property
of the proprietors was jconfiscated in nearly all but m
name ; the well being of the slave was sacrificed to
the shadow of a phantom of liberty. The West ludies
hive been a grave to English armies : the discoveries
of the Landers and others, have made known mere con
venient slave regions in Africa. The gradual opening
.of the East India Trade, will furnish ample and rich
fields for British Enterprise, and the effect of West In
dia Emancipation, it was frequently avowed, in the
English House of Commons, would be most important
in fts influence on American Slavery. These reasons
constituted the whole stock of philanthropy employed
to carry through the West Ind-ia Emancipation. And,
finally, British emmissaries are prowling through the
Northern sections of our country, and promulgating doc
trines which, if acted on, must inevitably work the spee
dy dissolution cf this Union.
A9 was predicted, some time ago, John Quincy Ad
ams has virtually deserted his former supporters and
-associates, and gone ever to Van Buren. We intended
to publish his letter to that miserable tool, Dutee J.
Pearse, with some remarks ; but the comments of tho
Boston Alias are so forcible and pertinent that we re-
$fcrve both for publications in our next. It is only at
the expense of his intellect that Quincy Adams can be
acquitted of consummate meanness and baseness.
Hon. S. P. Carson. By the annexed correspondence,
it will be seen that the distinguished citizen and
statesman, Samuel P. Carson, was tendered the honor of
a Public Dinner cn the eve of his leaving the State for
the West, by the citizens of Burke county. It is truly
painful to see the departure from amongbt us of such
an eminent man as Mr. Carson. His eminent virtures,
stern integrity, and inflexible patriotism, together with
his talents and public services to bis native Skate, will
j ever combine to inspire her citizens with the warmest
feelings of gratitude and esteem.

Dear Sir : The undersigned Committee, appointed

Gentlemen: Your note of this date, inviting me to
partake of a Public Dinner, to be given in this place, at
such time as may suit my convenience, was handed me
It is painful to leave my native land, and more so to
separate from those with whom my earliest and dcar-e.-.t
recollections are associated, and from whom I have
received so many marks of kiudne3 and confidence.
It any thing could add to the painful sensations which
are at this morneut conflicting in my breast, it would be
the necessity I am umler of leaving this place immedi
ately to join my family, now on their way to the West,
and of declining the acceptance of your invitation, man
ifesting as it does, a continuation of the kind and gencr
ojs feelings towards me, which have uniformly been
shown by my fellow citizens in Burke.
I beg you, gentlemen, to tender to them my grateful
acknowledgements for this last mark of their respect,
and the assurance of my continued attaenment to N.
Carolina and her institutions, and my best wishes for
f!ie welfare and prosperity of her citizens. And, for
) ourselves, gentlemen, be pleased to accept the sincere
friendship and high regard of

Hon. IV. P. Mangum. From the following letter,
it will be seen that the citizens of Jackson, N. C, have
invited the Hon. W. P. Mangum to partake of a public
dinner in that place. Mr. Mangum has accepted the
invitation, and appointed Friday, the (th of next month,
lor the dinner to take place. Thus, while hired calum
niators are pouring their abuse upon Judge Mangum
tbr the patriotic stand which he has taken in defence of
the Constitution and the liberties of his country, the
genuine PEOPLE are rewarding him by public mani
festations of their approbation,
Jackson, N. C, 11th September, IS-Tj.
Sir : The undersigned have been appointed, by a large
and respectable portion of the people of this Congres
sional District, to invite you to a public dinner at Jack
son, at such time as may su;; your convenience to desig
nate. In the performance of the duty assigned them,
they trust that a few observations on the signs of the
times, especially, so far as they relate to the distinguish
ed body of which you are a member, will be neither
mistimed nor inappropriate.
The preservation of each Department of the Govern
ment in its full Constitutional vigor, is essential to se
cure the objects (or which they were severally institu
ted. By his great and unexampled popularity, and by
his immense patronage, the President has succeeded, in
a great degree, in rendering the House of Representa
tives subservient to his wishes. The Senate has be
come, therefore, the principal practical barrier to Exe
cutive encroachment. Planting itself upon the battle
ments of the Constitution, it has boldly challenged all in
truder, whether open or insidous, upon the provisions
of that sacred instrument. It has said to the Executive,
"Thus far thalt thou go, and no farther.1
As was to have been expected, this course has exposed
it to a warfare the most inveterate and deadly. No
charge has been deemed too attrocious to be made
against no corruption too flag-rant to bo ascribed to
men, of whom Rome might have been proud in her
palmiest days. An organized corps of jensionrd press
es, has exerted all its power to poison the public mind,
by holding it up to public prejudice, as an irresponsible
aristocracy. A band of ambitious office holders and seek
ers, have constantly villifiod it. Even the State Legis
latures, with a suicidal blindness, have, some of them,
lent their aid to degrade that branch of the Federal
Government, in which the sovereign members of the
confederacy are directly represented.
Hitherto, the Senate has not quailed before the pow
erful opposition arrayed against it. Making its coun
try's good and truth the ends it aimed at, it has camly
and fearlessly awaited the time, when the sober judg
ment of the people should do justice to its motives.
When we say that the course of the United States Se
nate, in the trying emergencies in which it has been
placed, has commanded our approbation, we but feebly
express our feelings. It hasour highest admiration and
gratitude and we feel proud, sir, that one of the Rep
resentatives of our own State, in that august body, has
minrrlod in the thickest of the fight not the least dis
tinguished, of those who were battling in the cause of
' f . - T- - l
liberty and law against executive supremacy ir.ai
with the courage and spirit of a freeman, the represen
tative of freemen, he has dared to call things by their
right names, to denounce the usurpation and the usurp
er, the tyranny and the tyrant.
It is to cheer you on, sir, in the noble career which you
have begun to animate you to renew the strife with
fresh courage and zeal, that this testimonial of our ap
probation is offered. It springs from no spirit of adula
tion, but is the voluntary offering of freemen, who know
their rights, and are determined at every hazard to main
tain them, to a faithful public servant, whom the spirit
of a faction has endeavored to degrade and proscribe.
Accept, sir, assurenccs of our highest esteem, and
our ardent desire that you may long live to defend the
Constitutk-a and laws of our country.

Extracted from the life of the renowned Edmund
Rucker, member of the late Baltimore Convention,
This Anecdote has appeared, to some very learned
friends of ours to illustrate a doctrine which they stren
uously maintain. It is, that the germs of dispositions
and capacities developed in mature age, may always be
discovered in the propensities and actions of boy-hood.
Whether the roving intrepidity which led the adventu
rous member of the Convention to stray into that body
could be prognosticated from the straggling of the
" Young Edmund" off to see a bar, (bear,) is a matter
too puzzling for our decision. But we can withhold
the .anecdote no longer.
The youthful Edmund accompanied his father on a
trip to Fuyetteville with a waggon loaded with flaxseed,
and various other commodities for trade, so lavishly fur
nished by the remote counties of the State.
" While in Fayetteville, he learned that a bear was
exhibiting, which he forthwith resolved to see at the
hazard cf all consequences. Without consulting any
one, further than merely to mention the course he was
determined to pursue, he departed. His long absence
aroused the fears of a tender parent; and the sympa
thies of not a few passengers in the street were excited
by the plaintive inquiry of the inconsolate father, 'has
any body been our Edmund what went to see the bar
(bear) " Biography of E. Rucker, Esq., Vol. X.fuge
The life of E. R., of which the above is a specimen
of its style, will be published uniformly with the Biog
raphy of Martin Van Buren and Col. Johnson. It is
now in the hands of Mr. Grund, who is preparing a
German translation of it for the use of the German por
tion of the Jackson-Van Buren-Party in Pennsylvania.
The German copy will be embelished by a frontispiece
representing Mr. Rucker looking at a bear. Its trans
lation into Indian will be shortly forthcoming for the
benefit of Col. Johnson'B school. The work is highly
recommended by Attorney Genl. Butler, and John Quin
Maryland. The Elections have just taken place in
this State, for members to Congress and the State Le
gislature. Four Whigs have certainly been elected to
Congress, and two Van Burenites ; two districts yet to be
heard from, but supposed to send Van Buren men. The
whigs have elected a large majority to the Legislature.
Pennsylvania. We have not received any returns
from the general elections in this State; but, judging
from the result of the preliminary election of Inspectors
for the general election, the Whigs will carry tho State
most triumphantly. In the city of Philadelphia, the
whigs elected their Inspectors in all of the 15 wards.
If this State does go against Mr. Van Buren, as we
have no doubt it will, the campaign for the Presidency
will assume quite a different aspect; for his friends
have always put down Pennsylvania as certain for Van.
Genl. Wm. H. Harrison will get the vote of Pennsyl
vania, if so be, the whigs determine to run him in pre
ference to Judge White their object being to run the
one most likely to defeat the office holder's candidate.
Georgia. We have received returns from twenty
nine counties, which give Dougherty, the State Rights
candidate, n majority of ?7 votes over Schley, the Van
Buren Federal candidate. For Congress and the Le
gislature, the result, so far, is equally favorable.
Internal Improvement. A Convention of Delegates,
from numerous counties of Virginia, assembled in Dan
ville, Virginia, on the Cth instant, fcr considering the
propriety of constructing a Rail-Road from Danville to
Evansville, in Wythe county. The Convention recom
mended tho employment of a competent Engineer to
survey the route, and ascertain the probable cost of the
Road ; and that the members adopt such means as they
may think expedient for raisinir, by subscription, a suf
ficient sum for defraying the expenses of said survey.
A Committee was also appointed to draft an Address to
the people of Virginia and North-Carolina, oa the im
portance and practicability of the proposed road ; which
address we shall publish next week, as requited. The
proposed route will pass through a portion of this State.

The following are the Preamble and Resolutions adop
Whereas, great and alarming excitempnt has been
produced in these United States, by tlie attempts of in
dividuals and of associations, to interfere with the rela
tions that have heretofore existed between master and
servant : And whereas, the Constitution of this State
provides that the citizens thereof may peaceably assem
ble together, and calmly and freely express their opin
ions on all such matters as may concern them ; there
fore, 1. Resolved, That we look upon the attempts that
have been made, and are now making in some sections
of tliose United States by Abolition Societies, and by
the discourses and publications of Abolitionists, as dan
gerous to the peace of the Southern States, and as well
calculated to produce insubordination and insurrection
among the slaves and anxiety anions: the masters.
2. Resolred, That we view all foreign attempts to
regulate the condition of the slave population.or to intrude
between the master and servant, as improper and dan
gerous; as forbidden by the spirit of the Constitution of
the United States; and as an arrogant assumption, on
the part of those agitators and foreigners, to intermed
dle with and determine the course of conduct proper to
be pursued by those who are in no way amenable to
them, and over whom neither nature, the Constitution,
or the laws, gives them any authority.
II. Resolved, That, dear to us as is the Union of these
States, and bitterly as we deprecate an allusion to its
possible dissolution, still we would deem the immediate
and universal emancipation of the .slaves amon." us as a
greater evil than such dissolution, and we declare our
firm conviction that such an event would wrest the fair
est and richest portion of the United States from the
possession of the white population, unless it s-hould be
prevented by the extirpation of tlie blaeks.
4. Resolved, That, with very few exceptions, the
slaves among us are fed and clothed as well as the la
boring classes in any other country, and are generally
allowed to attend at places of worship and to receive
Religious instruction, and are happy and contented
not requiring tlie labours of the Abolitionists, and m-
deed, tew greater evils could happen to them than to
become acquainted with and be misled by such persons,
5. Resolved, That, in our opinion, in" many of those
meetings which have been held in those States wiiere
there are no slaves, in opposition to th Abolitionists,
sentiments have been avowed which we deem repre
hensible, as evincing a disposition to claim jurisdiction
and authority in matters not properly before them.
With the meeting in Philadelphia, and some others,
however, we are well satisfied, and approve the spirit
they breathe and the course they pursue.
6. Resolved, That whatever may be our individual
opinions on the subject of slavery, we will unite to re
sist and repel, by every means in our power, all dicta
tion on this subject from abroad.
7. Rrsidred, That we recommend to tlie next Gen
eral Assembly of this State, carefully to revise the
laws, and if necessary, to make such enactments re
specting agitators and incendi ry publications as the
emergency of the times may require.
6. lit solved. That we ple.le ourselves to each oth
er, and to the country, to use our best endeavors to
bring to legal and merited punishment every person
who shall be found among us throwing firebrands, ar
rows, and death, in the form of inflamatory addresses
