bv the timely declaration of dividends of capital
made by the State Hank and Rank of Newborn, on

sources, however, from which such opportune re

year, are now nearly exhausted ; ami it has been
determined by the State Hank, that no further di
vidend of capital shall be declared until the expira

and bring its affaiis to a final close; so that all

Mr. Dudley said, it was with extreme reluctance
he opposed any m tion of the gentleman from Lin
coln, and he trusted that, in now moving to lay bis
proposition on the table, he should not be consider
ed as acting disresjectfully.
The on Mr. Du 1 ley's motion was announced
to be A s 37 N es o7. S the in diou was lost.
Mr. itavner ni ived to amend the motion ;-ub-
milled by Mr. Hoke, by striking out the word ' im
mediately," and inserting "on Thursday next."-
And sup;or?ed his motion at some length.
Mr. II ke said, tiie gentleman who bad just ad
dressed the House possessed a most exulerant fan
cy. He had said a gool ileal about chivalry and
magnanimity, but really he could not see what they
had to do with the simple prooosition bef re them.
A very substantial reason, be thought, why the
elections should all be made, was, that those leing
over, th Legislature could then proceed to despatch
the necessary business, fre of excitement, an I go
home to th'ur constituents. 1) mht had liecii ex
pressed as to the vievvsof the gentleman nominated
by him on particular subjects. Is there a man
hep, said Mr. Hoke, who des not know the ji
nioiis of U-c!rir I I)obls Spaight on public matters?
He nail Ix en in public life for twenty ears, and
nvrr fit c-filed bis sentiments. He jcliovcd he
knew all his principle. :md he was sttisfiel with
tuem. lie assan-d g 'nt'.eme'.i h me mt nothing
unfiir, he wished nothing unfair he thought if was
w-l unders'o k1 that this election was to come ou
Mr. KlXfJ said, the gentleman from Lincoln
stated that it was well u rierstood the election of
(lovcruor was income on to-day. lie would ak,
by whom was it understood ? It might have ben
by the lea lers of i he party with which that gentle
man acted, hut certainly the understanding was not
general. As a free man, lie protested against the
application of party h .rntx.i, whether it were to
serve political friends or opponents. The gentle
man however was so lesirous of despatching the
public business, that he would consent to no delay.
The party to w aieh he belonged, arrogated to them
selves, he ldieved, the exclusive merit of attending
to the public interests. .Mr. Ivmg said, he recol
leetcd distinctly, that the election fir a United
States Senator last w inter was precipitately brought
on fr the very same reason, viz : that the public
business might In despatched. Gentlemen were
invoked to give an impetus to business bv having
tin election over. It was done, and in a few davs
we had a beautiful exemplification of the manner
in which the public business was to be despatched.
A string of Political Resolutions were brought for
ward, disgraceful to the State and to the party bv
whom they were introduced, which were debated
for several days at an expense of some xKOdO or
3l2,0(i) to the people. This was the way in w hich
"th" public business was despatched." And lie
had understood that another political dose of like
character was now in preparation, the one admin
istered last session not having proved stromr cnouirh
for the purpose intended.
With regard to the gentleman nominated, he felt
for him great personal respect, but he was a poli-
tical racer, whose notions he did not like, and he
com i not vote f r him. lie imputed nothing de
rogatory to the gentleman from Lincoln, but be
could not hdp remarking what a sudden revolution
his feelings h id undergone with regard to his can
didate. He knew the time when he was far from
bing a favorite with him.
Rut, said Mr. King, I deprecate this precipitate
action. What is to le gain" I by it, as the gentle
man from Hertford. (Mr. Rayner,) has emphatical
ly asksd ? If the party are confident of success,
they can lose nothing by a few days delay. Are
we to le f rced into a balloting, merely to gratify
their pride of power, and to allbrd 4h"in an oppor
tunity to exult, as they h ivc already done, at victo
ri"s not achieved exclu-ively on party grounds?
Such baste is a departure from established usage.
Are we to have no time to enquire into the fitness
of candidates ? Is ri opportunity for deli!er.itioti
or consultation to be allowed us ? Or has every
tiling beu arranged out of doors, and ail wo have
ti do is, like Iige vassals, to register the decrees
of th" junto ? A a free man, be protested against
it. 'The annals of every Legislature in the Union
might be consulted in vain for a precedent to justi
fy tins mode of hurrying on elections. He did
hope, however Ihey might djf:.r in their ideas of
the qualifications "f candidates, that tho election
would be at Ica-st decently conducted.
lr. lloxe. 1 as! Dai
ever, reminds me of the story of the man and the
great black dog. that he heard always trotting just ;
t . - '
behind him, but which never came in sight. It j
was all fancy sir the workings of a disordered
imagination. So with the gentleman lrom Iredell, :
in regard to the Mangum Resolutions. They are
everlastingly present to his distempered imagina
tion, and uo doubt in his view are infamous.
Mr. CLING MAX said, the chief reason ad
vanced for bringing on the election now, was to i
save time. It there be any sincerity in this nrgu-; election on party grounds, .viv reason tor wisnmg me v.u i v
ment, why was it not brought on 'last week ? It j a ostponement"is simply this :" It has been rumor- authorising the entrv of unsurveyed lands acquired

one f the Ju Ige of the Supreme Court, command

death, r"ngoation,or otherwise, of any of the Judges
of the S uperior Courts of law' and Equitv, of this
State ; and by Mr. Wyche, a bill to provide for
the payment of the tnstalme its on the shares re
serve I to the State in tiie capital stock of the Hank
of the State. Il"al th first time and passed the
last mentioned bill referred.
Mr. Manly said, that those gentlemen present,
who were members of the last Legislature, would
recollect the eventful history of a bill introduced
by him to establish tiie Merchant's Pnok d New
ben. It passed info a law, and the li t ok has g me
into ojH'ration ; and notwithstanding the nunrr'iis
difficulties it encountered in the outset, it was now
of fair prop rtioas, and m as s mnd and healthy a
condition as could be expected. Toe Charter, how
ever, contained one or two slight blemishes, which
it would requin the plastic, hand of" the Legislature
to remedy. One of these was in the clans.; author
izing the Stockholders, at their annual meeting, to
elect seven Directors, five of whom shall Ik neces
sary to transact business. In its practical opera
tion, this regulation is attended with great incon
venience, as it is frequently difficult, csecially in
me more stcKlv periods ot I he vear, to form a
i Hoard. It is desirable, therefore," to am-ul the
bill, as to authorise the appointment of nine Direc
tors, any five of whom shall constitute a quorum.
Another detect in the Charter, which required
correction, was this ; IU- f.e nmvi;,)iN of the ct
incorporating the Hank of the State and the Rank
: of Cae.I-Var, those institutions were authorized to
j iue Notes of the denomination of 83 and upwards,
1 while tiie Merchant's liank is restricted to issues
of js-j and upwards. A little reflection, he thought,
would convince every one, of the propriety of ma
king the issues uniform ; fr if they were not made
so, tlie cutlers of the Merchant's Bank would be
continually drained of sjecie to make change, a
large quantify of which is need"d in commercial
communities. So long as the Rank of the Shite
pursued its present policy of issuing no notes under
So, the Merchant's Rank would not require any
alteration to protect it.
Mr. M. said, as the Amendments to the Consti
tution were most probably ratified, this was jerad
venture the last time that !h" of Newbern
would be represented on that 11 or. He hoped,
therefore, lofore his constituents were disfranchised
lefir" night fell on Athens that this act of
sheer justice would le done them. Mr. M. then
submitted a bill to amend the Charter in tlie par
ticulars specified, which was read the first time.
Mr. Clarke moved that a message be sent to the
Senate, proposing to ballot immediately for a Soli
