document iii this week's paper, and shall finish it in our

STATE 1 .1 :( IISI . ATUIi E.
Owing to the extreme length of the President's pres
tige, and our desire to give as much of it as possible in
our present no., we are compelled to omit our report of
t!ie proceedings of the legislature; making, however,.
an Elitorial Abstract of the most interesting nutters.
In the Senate, the greater part of several days hive
b'-eti spent in discii-sing, and propositi amendments to
a set of Resolutions on the su'j .-ct of the Public Lands,
introduced by .Mr. Waugh, with-."it coming to a deci
sion upon them. These Resolutions assort the right of
North Carolina to an equal distribution of the proceeds
of these Lands, ami are nearly the same as those intro
duc -d into the Commons by Mr. Clinguian, though not
hi emphatic. Tiie I'dl more elf ctu illy to suppress the

tiou of the first Resolution, a division of the Resolution
was called for, as containing two distinct propositions ;
the vote was taken on the first branch of the Resolu
tion, which declares that Con gi ess Ins no right to give
to the n-MV St.at' the lain! within their respective lim

voted in the nejratiw, were Messrs. Thomas Hell, Jy

The question now recurring on the adoption of the
last Resolution, which requests the Clovernor to forward
the Resolution to our Senators and Representatives, it
was decided in the affirmative, to 50.
ICt the People of North Carolina put a mark upon
the men who voted against these Resolutions: their
duty to the State was plain before them, but they have
preferred the aggrandizement of party to the interest
Qand welfare of the State they knew the People's will
and did it not; tnerefore they should " be beaten with
many stripes," And let it no longer be said that the
Van Buren party in North Carolina are not opjuised to
the State's having her just and equal portion of the pro
ceeds of the Public Lands: every man to a man who
toted against these Resolutions are thorough-gcing par
tizans of Van Buren.
On Wednesday, Mr. Polk, from the Joint Select Com
mittee on so much of the Coventor's Message as relates
to the Incendiary Publications, Reported u Preamble,
with the following Resolutions, which were laid ujon
Resolved, That we are ready and willing to make a
common cause of this subject with the rest of our sis
ter tlavedioldin States, and hereby invite their co-oj-
eration in passing such laws and regulations as may be
necessary to suppress and prevent the circulation of any
such publications within any of said slave-holding
RexolceJ, That althouh the Constitution secures to
Congress the exclusiv e jurisdiction over the District ce
ded by the States to the Federal (iovernm'iit, yet we
should deprecate any action on the pirt of Conress,
towards liberating the Slaves of the District, without
consent of their owners, as a breach of faith towards
those States, by whom the territory was ceded ; and
will regard such an interference as the first step tow ards
legislative action with reard to their property.
Resolved, Thai his Excellency the (Governor of this
State be requested to transmit a" copy of these Rcsolu-
I tins to each of o.:r Senators and Representatives in
Conress, and to the Executive of each of the States
of this Union.
Mr. Polk, also, from the same committee, at the re
quest of the minority of the said committee, submitted
the following resolutions, which were also laid upon the
table and ordered to !w? printed.
1. Resolved, That .North Carolina alone has the right
to leL-date over the Slaves in her territory, and any
attempt to change their condition, whether made by
Congress, the legislatures, or the People of other States,
will be regarded as an invasion of our rights.
2. Resolved, That .. e are ready and willing to make,
on this subject, a common cause with the rest of our
sifter slave-holding States, and hereby invite their co
operation in passing such laws and regulations as may
be necessary to suppress and prevent the circulation of
any incendiary publications within any of the slave
3. Resolved, That the thanks of this State are due,
and the kindest feelings of the citizens thereof are
cherished towards their brethren uf the North, who
have magnanimously sustained the principles of our
i eileral i lovernmenL, and recognized and maintained
our rights against the fanatics of those States.

In the House of Commons on Wednesday the Oth,
the bill from the Senate, to make the Yadkin River the
dividing line between the counties of Rowan and Da-
vidson was read the veeond time
Mr. Brummcl stated the reason w hich rendered the :
passage of the bill desirable, and renreseni.d the irreat
inconveniences under which a portion of the people of
satisfied. If the present bill succeeded, the county line
w ould be brought within six miles of Sal i.-bury, the seat
of justice be entirely thrown out of the centre, and the
people thereby rreatly dissatisfied. 1 he Poor Houses
tne mil w;u, ine.vp.uieni, unjust, ana impolitic.
Mr. Hoke disliked to interfere in these private mat
ters, but felt impelled by a sense of justice to say a j
word in op;xsition to the bill. 1 lie eilect wouiI be lo
tax Rowan county with a new set of l'oor Houses,
w hich he understood had cost the county about :sl ,HM.
The legislature would not certainly do this.
Mr. Urummell referred to the provisions of the bill to
show, that it was contemplated to pay to Rowan county !
the lull value ot the la ml ami improvements UKdi trom ;
it ; though the building's, be
. ,ti. jl- !
More than that, Davidson county was willing to take
and sup;xrt such Paupers as belonged to their side of j
the River. I
The motion lo postpone was negatived, and the bill
passed its second and third readings, and was ordered to
bo iitrullcd; it is therefore a law.
07" The f dlowing extract is from the letter of a
gentleman who is a close observer of passing political
events, and in the correctness of whose views we place
great confidence. Were th-i patriotic sentiments which
pervade this letter more prevalent in the breasts of all
who profess opposition to the President's appointing his
successor, their opxsition might be more effective.
We lake this opivrtunity to return our most grateful
thanks to our correspondent for his kind efforts in our
behalf; and assure him thai, as "sentinels on th watch
tower of liberty," fo guard the sacred trust inviolable
and sound the alarm of approaching danger, to warn
and summon the People to rally around the standard of
liberty and equal rights, shall, as heretofore, be our un
ceasing, vigilant, and sleepless endeavor.
Our correspondent may well be alarmed at the vast
numbers of that infamous sheet, the I i lobe., which are
literally inundating every section of the country with
low, vulgar abuse of every distinguished man who dares
to act f r his country in preference to party, when the
President himself stoops from his station to scatter them
by thousands, free of expense.
"Our section of the country isstoeked with,
and aNjut to be contaminated by, the mischievious in
fluence of the " Washington (Ilolw," the Van Buren
or-'aii." "Without more union and concert of
action in our contest f jr the Presidency, we may just as
well "give up the ship;" and those who have forgotten
principles, thiough their preference for men, will be to
blame tor the failure. Cannot the friends of White and
Harrison di.-card, for once, their preferences of men,
and meet each other in the following ticket, viz: Hugh
L White for President and William II. Harrison for
Vice-President, or, vice versa If not, I venture to
say, we may just as well prepare for the chains of sla
very, or, that which is preferable revolution.
"I awfully fear that freemen, yea, those who have
claimed to be consistent advocates of the republican
doctrines of Jefferson, are, ami will be, gulled into the
supiort of the " hoir apparent" through the instrumen
tality of dcneral Jackson, who I fear is about to prove
a Benedict Arnold a curse to the country.
"May dd Almighty avert these dire calamities, and
bless and prosper us in the enjoyment of our civil, but
more especially, rt Unions privileges, is the prayer of
your well-wishing friend, ."
With our correspondent we perfectly agree, tint un
less greater concert ntul union shall characterize the
action of the opponents of Van Buren, the contest will
be vain. With the army of ibcc-holdrrs enlisted in his
I tupiort, backed by the influence of the olllcial iuwer
nnd patronage ff the President, with a host of hireling I
presses, which daily teem with artfully contrived ap
peals to the basest passions of the sordid mind, for promo
ting liis- elevation, it will require the most jerfect una
nimity and concert of action, with the wakeful vigilance
of men struggling to maintain the last hold in the cita
del of liberty, for the enemies of Van Buren to defeat
To the query of our correspondent whether the sup
porters of White and Harrison could not unite in form
ing one ticket of the two fbr President and Vice Presi
dent we cannot give any definite answer. True, the
success of our free institutions would thus dictate, and
we fiin would hope that such an arrangement may be
effected as to rally the whole strength of the opposition
in a solid phalanx, that corruption ists may be made to
quail under the power of the people.

MOST DESTRUCTIVE FIRE!
Between 12 and 1 o'clock to-day, the house owned by
A McKcuzie, on the west side of Front street, occupi
ed by J. I. Westervelt as a Drug Store, took tire, and
very soon burned down. The lire extended up the same
side of the street to Kershaw street, and down to the
house occupied by McKenzic and Adams as a Store,
and owned by Mr. John Taylor. The wind blowing
directly across the street, communicated the fire to the
opposite side from the large two-story house occupied
by D. &. J. M alloy as a store. On the east side of the
street, every house on the square between Market and
Kershaw streets was burnt down, as was also the store
of J. C. Wadsworth, on the north side of Kershaw st.

Fruits of Abolitionism. The northern people them
selves are beginning to experience some ot the golden
fruits of the labors of ihe Abolitionists. Recently, in
Salem Mass., some young white ladies were standing
conversing at the corner of a public street, w hen a ir
griss, passing on the opposite side, and seeing them unpro
tected, came over and rudely assaulted one of the ladie
without any cause whatever. To avoid any further
interruption, the ladies passed to the opposite side of
the street; the negress, however, followed them, and
actually commenced beating one of them, until her
blows were restrained by a gallant white man, who
had been witnessing the whole scene from his shop
door. The negress was then taken to the police office,
bound over to court, gave security for her appearance,
and was again set at liberty; while the joung lady
w hom she bad assaulted and beat was unable to get out
of her bed for weeks. The wretch of a white man, w ho
restrained her blows instead of levelling her to the
ground, and he w ho went security for her appearance
at court, ought both to bo horse-whipped for their con
(j7 Death of Members of Congress. The Hon
Nathan Smith, one of the Senators in Congress from
Connecticut, died very suddenly in Washington City,
on Sunday morning the Oth inst The following are
the remarks of Mr. Tomlinson, his colleague, announc
ing the sad event to the Senate :
Mr." President : It has become my painful duty to
announce to the Senate the death of the Hon. Nathan
Smitli, late a Senator from the State of Connecticut
Arriving in this City, apparently in the full posses
sion and exercise of all his powers, my colleague and
friend interchanged the kind salutations appropriate to
the occasion, w ith the cordiality and frankness and vi
vacity which characterised his social intercourse, and
secured the attachment and confidence of those with
whom he was intimately asciated. He retired to rest
on Saturday evening, as far as was observed, in the en
joyment of bis accustomed health and spirits. Feeling
indisposed, he rose from his bed and obtained the advice
of a medical friend, who subsequently left his apartment
without the slightest apprehensions of a fatal result
In a short time his altered appearance caused alarm,
and his friend was again called. On his return, the
heart had ceased to beat, and he expired in his chair,
on Sunday morning about half past one o'clock, w ithout
a struggle or a groan. Thus unexpectedly ami awfully
waus our late Oiuciatc and friend suminuiiwl from a state
of probation and trial into the presence of the Divine
Redeemer and Judge, in whom he devoutly professed
to believe and trust May this rcneived demonstration
of the solemn truth, " that in the midst of life we are in
death," produce its proper effect on our hearts and lives,
and be instrumental in preparing us for the judgement
to come and the retributions of eternity.
I he afllictive event which has cast such a gloom over
this body, cannot fail to excite profound sensibility and
reret throughout the Union, as well as in the native ,
State of the deceased, where he has Ion been ranked
among her most able and distinguished lawyers and
statesmen. While we lament the inscrutable Provi
dence, with humble submission, it becomes us to be still,
know in? that the destinies of men and nations are in
the hands of an omnipotent and holy God, whose dis
pensations are merciful and right
The Globe of December 1, has the following :
" We regret to announce to the public, the death of
another M ember of Congress from Connecticut Mr.
Wildman died at his lodgings night before last This
gentleman left home debilitated by previous sickness,
and possibly the exposure and fatigue of his journey
produced the relapse which occasioned Ins sudden deatn.
He was in attendance on the first days of the session."
